@imredalert @dpnortonWould we consider the sucker pucher to be at the top of the initiative order automatically?
I wouldn't. Even with a sucker punch, there are telltale signs that violence is about to happen. But that's just me…

@dpnortonUnanticipated sucker punch from visible creature calls for initiative. Is target ‘surprised’ in combat terms?
Dungeon Master's call, but if it was me I would rule not surprised. Probably.

I have an easy fix for this: Make an opposed Deception Vs Insight check.
Aye is a good solution.
Unanticipated…. Synonym: Surprising (per multiple thesaurus sources)
Let’s not over think this.
