The potion of see invisible enables you to see invisible monsters. Blessed potions give you the intrinsic permanently; uncursed and cursed give you the intrinsic for 750-849 turns. If it is not cursed, this potion will also remove blindness.

This potion has exactly the same messages as the potion of fruit juice (a reference to the game Rogue). This makes them quite difficult to tell apart by random quaffing. Some ways to identify it as see invisible include:

  • If you were blind and were unblinded, it was see invisible.
  • If you see previously invisible monsters after quaffing, it was see invisible.
  • If you are invisible, you get the terribly worded message "You can see through yourself, but you are visible!"
  • If you become invisible after quaffing and get the message "Gee! All of a sudden, you can see right through yourself." rather than the normal "Gee! All of a sudden, you can't see yourself." then it was a potion of see invisible.
  • If enlightenment shows that you have the see invisible intrinsic, it was see invisible.
