Okay, I've been gaming for a while now but time and time again I find myself second-guessing what exactly can be used for Attacks of Opportunity.

This carries from 3.5 to d20M to PF, please just provide the information you happen to know, know that this is mostly just for d20M/Nd20 though.

Trip, Disarm, Sunder: To my knowledge these can be substituted for a melee attack at any time, middle of a full-attack, end of a charge, during your opponent's move(when trip is quite nice).

Bull Rush: Always been a standard action or during a charge sort of dealy, barring special feats or techniques that let you do it as part of an attack.

Feint: Also always a Standard Action, Move with Improved Feint.

Overrun: Far as I know this requires movement(like a full move action) to use, so definitely wouldn't work as an AoO



Grapple: This eludes me, I have heard arguments for and against it in all 3 systems I frequently play, it says the movement is free unlike with Bull Rush so that is less of an issue, but some of the strictest rules lawyers I know say you can grapple as an AoO, but at the same time I often enough find those saying no that I just need some clarity.

D&D: http://www.d20srd.org/srd/combat/attacksOfOpportunity.htm

Modern: http://www.d20resources.com/modern.d20.srd/combat/attacks.of.opportunity.php

Both D&D and D20 Modern define an AoO as "a single melee attack". A grapple attempt is considered a "special attack", and, I would say that clearly means you cannot use an AoO to grapple.

I... what? This was a several year old thread about whether you can grapple with an attack of opportunity, I don't know who Grace is or anything about a Podcast >_>
