Rage (Ex): A male hoardevil that takes damage in combat flies into a berserk rage on his next turn, biting madly until either he or his opponent is dead. He gains +4 to Strength, +4 to Constitution, and -2 to Armor Class. He cannot end his rage prematurely.

A hoardevil usually attacks with a vicious bite. It also can make a slam attack with its chestplate, but it cannot deliver both attacks during the same round.
Usually, a male hoardevil begins a battle by using his powerful charge ability, slamming the opponent with his bony chestplate. Thereafter, he engages his foes in melee, attacking with his bite. The creature's rage ability usually ensures that he fights to the death.
