Doppelgangers are monsters that can mimic the PC. In ASCII-mode they are represented by an @ symbol of the same color as the PC. In tiles-mode they are represented by the same tile as the PC. The sprite on this page is only displayed when using monster detection.

When they attack they have a chance to cause confusion for 1d2 turns, and they deflect all missiles except potions and gold. They will usually fail to use their deflection ability while confused, stunned, or paralyzed.

Monster memory[]

Shock! You reel back in horror and dismay as you confront your own body and face where a moment ago was only a pale and indeterminate humanoid form. Your own face leers horribly back at you as you start to wonder just who is who and what is going on. If you're over there, then who is standing here?
