Prior to version 2.3.5, ultimate doppelgangers were called doppelganger kings.
Ultimate 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.
Like other doppelgangers, they have a chance to cause confusion for 1d2 turns when they attack, and they deflect all missiles except potions and gold. They will usually fail to use their deflection ability while confused, stunned, or paralyzed.
Special abilities[edit source]

Corpse effects[edit source]
You recoil in confusion from your own mirror image! The strange figure seems to be your identical twin... only more so, somehow. Curiously, your twin seems to be a lot more like you than you yourself ever could be! You start to wonder whether you should continue your life now that you know how perfect you'll never manage to be.
