Try something like

if hp == 0:
potion.position = position #setting the potions position to the enemy’s position
Queuefree() # freeing enemy

Your welcome! And put it under the process function because its something you are constantly checking for.

Im reading the answer and your reply

I think you need to think about “responsibilities” (from the objects)

who get the damage? the enemy
from? The player, the player sword, the player bullet, or whatever

so… lets use Asthmar code and try this

you can resolve this in multiple ways. My approach:

the object that makes the damage (collide with your enemy) will call a func on your enemy

(object wich makes damage)

var damage_amount := 100

_on_body_enterded(body) -> void: 
    if body.name == "Enemy" #I'm assuming your enemy scene/node have that name

(object enemy)

func receive_damage(damage: int) -> void:
    hp -= damage
    if hp <= 0:

func die() -> void:
    var potion = preload(path_to_potion)
    potion.position = position

Of course this need a good collision layer/mask and type of node manage
