When I use the X Potion from any level, I get teleported to an area where I fight myself. But, I can't seem to win!

Whenever I try to heal, the other me heals as well, so I keep dying before I can kill myself! How can I win?

This question is related, from the original Candy Box. (I'm not sure by how much though as I've yet to play #2.) – Schism Oct 24 '13 at 13:22

You can find the answer by reading the scrolling text in the background (use the time slowing ring if you find it hard to read). The answer:

Wear the crown you get from killing the Octopus King and just autoattack. You'll survive on 1HP.

This didn't work for me... – fredley Oct 24 '13 at 16:21
It seems to not work if you have enchanted the crown. hmmmm. Does anyone know how to disenchant it? – Fungo Oct 24 '13 at 17:09
Oh, I see. you just get another one. – Fungo Oct 24 '13 at 17:58

You must obtain the Octopus King's crown by beating him in the cave. Afterwards, you'll have Self Confidence and can kill your doppelganger. Otherwise, you die when your doppelganger dies.
