The Doppelganger is a ghostly double or counterpart of a living person.


Doppelganger is an opposite version of Maxwell. He wears a blue rooster helmet, a red shirt and green pants. He has evil looking eyes, like he is angry, but the smile simply makes him look mischievous. He looks the same as Maxwell, color aside. In Scribblenauts Unlimited, he only has one bracelet while Maxwell has gloves.

In Unmasked, Doppelganger has a more evil look on his face as well as gloves.


The Doppelganger isn't hostile towards the player, or any living creature. They are neutral, meaning that they will defend themselves when attacked. When created he will express the Evil.gif emotion. He will become hostile if anyone steals his notebook.

In Super Scribblenauts, Scribblenauts Remix and Scribblenauts Unlimited he will spawn wielding his notebook, in other versions he will equip while expressing the Use.gif emotion. He will randomly spawn objects in the map once holding the book.

Because the doppelganger is classified as a monster, other NPCs will run away from him.



In Scribblenauts, there was one mission in which you had to slay a Shoggoth, however at the same time there were multiple Doppelgangers who will, quite menacingly, steal any weapon you summon, he also appears in a monster party, however in the Remix remake of the same level he was replaced by a vampire. In this the game the Doppelganger was just another enemy. The Doppelganger also had a strange and funny idle after running around for a short time, where he would detach his limbs.

Super Scribblenauts

However, in Super Scribblenauts he appeared as the final boss. The level opened with Doppelganger arriving in his UFO and stealing everyone and everything he saw, including the final Starite (and also a baby and the "President" object which strangely resembles Barack Obama"). After defeating him, he will lie dead and can't be destroyed, no matter what you do.

Scribblenauts Unlimited

In Scribblenauts Unlimited , Doppelganger appears in the Starite Shard Maxwell's Evil Twin! on Grave Manor, and will be referred as the name Maxwell. This time he spawns with the notebook and creates random objects in a short time.

Scribblenauts Unmasked

In Scribblenauts Unmasked he is one of the antagonists in the game. He is acidentally created by Maxwell, whom had his name written in the back of the page Maxwell used to created Gotham. He assists many villains with his notebook trough out the game, including the Joker, Lex Luthor, Cheetah and many others.

In the final level it's discovered that Doppelganger was being manipulated by Brainiac, a villain that wanted to used Lily's Globe to open a portal to the multiverse and created a Brainiac army of alternative timelines.

Maxwell befriends him by creating a sister to him called Doppelily, giving him a family he never had. After defeating Brainiac, Doppelganger apologizes to the Justice League for all the trouble he created and help them fix the damage caused by him.

In the comic sequels, Doppelganger is adopted by Maxwell's family, renamed to Alexander, because he was great like himself. He was given a sketchbook as gift by Edgar and was declared as a Scribblenaut.

Spoilers end here.
