I've heard that the octopus king will drop his crown upon dying, but I've killed him many times and I see no crown.


He drops it on death. Check your inventory, under "Hat" in the top right portion of where gear is listed, you should have a drop down. If you see a drop down, you should be able to select the crown from it.

The Candy Box 2 wiki says he always drops the crown. This information could be incorrect, or this could be a bug (the game was released today).

  • It could be a bug. I've gotten it for all the times I have beaten him.

  • I've gotten the drop about 50% of the time, maybe it depends if you already have one?

  • The Crown won't drop if you have one; I've killed him dozens of times (at least). Note that an enchanted crown does not count.

I had the same issue, it doesn't seem to drop every time for some people. After the 5th time fighting the octopus king I received the crown. However It wasn't in the messages I had to look in my inventory afterward. So make sure to check your inventory each time you defeat him.


The multiple drops are not a bug. Like the Leather Gloves the crown can be enchanted to get 1 of 2 properties by dropping a chocolate bar into the well.

You also need an unenchanted version of the crown to win a fight you can encounter when you use a certain potion.
