'''Coup de grâce''' is a special kind of attack that is guaranteed to kill its target. A regular attack is (automatically) converted to a coup de grâce when the target is a helpless ([[paralyze]]d or [[sleep]]ing) creature with four or fewer [[hit dice]]. This can be either a [[melee]] or a ranged attack, but the attacker must be within 30 feet of the target (the same range used for [[sneak attack]]s). While a coup de grâce cannot be applied to a [[player character]], it can be made against [[associate]]s (summons, familiars, etc.) of a player character.

'''Coup de grâce''' is a special attack that is automatically made when attacking a helpless creature with four or fewer [[hit dice]]. For the purpose of a coup de grâce, "helpless" means [[paralyze]]d or [[sleep]]ing. This special attack can be made either in [[melee]] combat or with a ranged weapon if the attacker is within 30 feet of the target (the same range used for [[sneak attack]]s). When a coup de grâce is made, the attack is automatically successful, and the victim dies from the attack. (There is no specific damage dealt; the victim is simply killed.) While a coup de grâce cannot be applied to a [[player character]], it can still instantly kill [[associate]]s (summons, familiars, animal companions, etc.) of that character.
 
When a coup de grâce is made, the attack is automatically successful, and the victim always dies from the attack. The automatic success means that the [[attack roll]] is always a natural 20, and miss chances (both [[concealment]] and attacker miss chances) are ignored. (There is no [[threat roll]], though.) After the coup de grâce hits, the target dies. There is no specific damage dealt; the victim is simply killed.
