Prior to version 2.3.5, greater doppelgangers were called doppelganger lords.

Greater doppelgangers are monsters in ADOM that can mimic the player. 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.

They have a powerful confusion attack and deflect all missiles bar potions and thrown Gold. Those two attacks mean that melee fighters and archers often have trouble fighting these monsters.

Monster memoryEdit

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 have a certain aura of majesty and power about it, and you feel suddenly as if it is you who are the pale reflection of the original.
