   You propose an interesting idea.  Perhaps a 1/200 chance that a mob
loads with 5* his normal statistics and abilities.  This, leaving those
whom would attack it anyhow safe (if paying attention) to realize
something isn't right, or having to think a little more to kill it, but
not so ungodly powerful it will kill you in a few hits.  Of course,
these numbers can always to adjusted for a different desired effect, or
balance.
