Dr Jekyll is a random event NPC that appears and urgently asks the player for help making a potion. If talked to, he requests a cleaned herb of the player. If the player has a herb in their inventory, he will take it and give them a potion, but if the player has no herbs he will give the player a Strength potion(2) before disappearing, saying he isn't safe with it.
Before the Optional Randoms & Goblins update, if ignored, Dr Jekyll would turn into Mr Hyde (level 14–159, depending on the player's Combat level) and attack the player with Melee. If killed, he would drop a potion or an empty vial. Killing him could sometimes be more profitable than giving him a herb, as he could possibly drop a Super restore potion(4).
As with all random events, if a player goes into a zone that doesn't allow random events, such as banks, or boss rooms, Dr Jekyll will disappear.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Dr Jekyll is a direct reference to the mystery novel Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. It is about a doctor who created a potion, splitting himself into two distinct personalities. He existed as the kind, gentle Dr Jekyll, and the fearsome, malevolent Mr Hyde.
- If a player receives this random event underwater, Jekyll will be seen wearing diving gear.
