Welcome to Random Encounters, the blog where we take a popular internet meme, animal video, or the like and turn it into a game rule for Pathfinder or Starfinder.
Ok, this mama leopard acting surprised to show the kitten leopard that it was doing a good job is hilarious, but the kitten mimicking the jump is even cuter.
Ok yeah, there needs to be a feat for that. But what class? Ok, if we’re doing a feat where someone is tricky and copies the other person… that seems like a Bard feat to me. It’s all about getting the subtleties of the performance down just right.

Prerequisites expert in Performance, Untrained Improvisation
You study another creature you can observe. If that creature performs an action or activity requiring two actions or less, you can use your reaction to mimic that activity. Resolve both actions simultaneously, applying the results of the action after determining the outcome. If this action or activity is a Cast a Spell activity, you must spend a spell slot of the appropriate level spell but that spell does not need to be on your spell list. If the action is casting a Focus Spell, you must spend the appropriate amount of Focus Points to cast the spell. For any action or activity that has a Spell or Class DC, use your Occult DC instead. Use your own statistics and bonuses for performing the action.
