What Kind of Among Us Player Are You

The online social deduction game, Among Us, has turned become a game and a socializing platform during the pandemic. Even though the game was released in 2018, it has recently gained astronomic popularity. The simplistic game allows a maximum of 10 players to either play the role of a crewmate trying to fix things while one or more imposters try to kill them off. With only two roles to play in the game, the types of players you will encounter are limitless.

When playing Among Us you will come across some players who fit into stereotypical roles. These familiar characters can be found spawning up in random rooms. You can even see each of your friends morph in to fit these roles if you play the game with your group. You may not even notice that you fit into one of these personality types as you play the game.

Curious about what type of Among Us player you are? Here are 25 player types which you may be able to identify with:

1. The Detective

You will know who the detective of the game is since they will announce it the moment they enter the game. This apparent spanner in every imposter’s kill-plan will continue to hang out in the admin or security room throughout the game. After every kill they will announce their analysis of the movements of each player, mostly ending up with no suspect.

While other crewmembers keep begging them to complete the tasks they rarely move from their self-appointed posts. Their corpses are usually found in admin or security. Once killed they angrily leave the group.

2. The Noob

Often ejected as the suspect, the newbie/noob to the game is often seen running around like a headless chicken. They can be spotted following people, standing in odd places, not performing tasks, or standing over the body. All suspect traits are exhibited by the noob.

When called out during votes they may plead innocence by claiming to be new to the game. While some empathetic crew trusts the one claiming to be a noob, many do not take the chance and boot noobs early in the game.

3. The Noob Imposter

No detectives are needed to catch this killer. This obvious imposter vents in plain sight or gets caught in the act of killing. During the vote, they barely try to defend themselves after being caught red-handed.

After being ejected, if they continue to play in the same room, they come back and bashfully say how much they hate being the imposter. While some noob imposters do not mind being called a noob, others leave the game before other players get a chance to say anything.

4. The Chameleon

These players seem to have some sort of commitment issue with the color of their character. After every game, you will see them run towards the laptop to change their colors before the game starts. At least you will rarely find them pestering other players to exchange colors with them. Change is their only constant, as they can be seen even changing up their hats and pets consistently.

5. The Host

This player refuses to enter a match hosted by others.

When playing alone, this control-freak can sit around in their empty spaceships waiting for more players to join in. They keep running frantically every few moments out of fear of getting timed out. They jump in to greet new players, imploring them to stay.

However, when the same player is playing with a group of friends you can see them turn into mean dictators. If the room is short a few players they make the room public for a few moments. Hitting the ban on players randomly. The Host changes their nature depending on the strength of the room.

6. The Follower

These players follow others around like a puppy. They tend to find comfort in numbers. You can never be sure if they have completed their tasks, but you will find them standing around as you complete yours.

Eventually, you may get comfortable with their presence around you. Them vouching for you during votes helps you grow fonder. So, when they do end up killing you and leaving your body in electrical, the crushing sense of betrayal will definitely give you trust issues.

It is similarly heartbreaking when you have to end up killing your follower after becoming the imposter.

There are 10 players in the room and you are about to start the game.

8. The Lawyer

They may be the imposter or the imposter’s friend, but they are definitely skilled at convincing people. Crewmates are often sent on witch-hunts convinced by the moving words of The Lawyer. Claiming that they or the defendant was with another player at all times, this player often gets away with gameplay murder.

9. Wasn’t me!

Shaggy would be proud of this player’s narrative throughout the game.

All they seem to say is “Wasn’t me” or “Not me.”

Even when players are not accusing them or suspecting them they keep pleading innocence. The more they say they are innocent the more other crewmates are convinced of their guilt. The panicked declaration is often met with ejection after a few rounds of the imposter not being found.

10. The One Word Wonder

This crewmate communicates using singular words in the game. Where? Who? Sus? Impos? Start!

Every single game from AmongUs

During every meeting, they jump in with the singular word of their choice. That is their complete contribution to the hunt for the imposter. After their moving single word speech, this player says nothing more. Even when blamed for the murder they rarely defend themselves leading to an unnecessary ejection.

11. The Foreigner

Even with the kindest of hosts, this is the player who ends up getting kicked or banned. With the language of the game set, The Foreigner often ends up talking in a different language or typing gibberish. After being asked multiple times to stick to the language of the room, The Foreigner continues their stream of conversation earning them a swift exit.

12. The Player on Mute

This player either has no idea of how to send messages or has crushing fear of public speaking. Whether they report the body or are named as a suspect, this usually innocent crewmate gets ejected in silence.

Some of these players even hit the emergency button and then fail to say anything. More suited for a game like charades, such players can end up swarming to unlucky groups leading to a very frustrating game.

13. Perpetual Sus

Do you always get called out as the suspect? Have you been randomly ejected from all the games that you have joined? Does no one believe you when you plead your innocence?

You are the Perpetual Sus!

This incredibly unfortunate crewmate has no idea what they are doing wrong for others to be suspicious of them. No matter how much they try to blend in, they end up getting named and ejected.

However, there are rare instances when the Perpetual Sus gets away with being the imposter as crewmembers end up feeling guilty for ejecting them.

14. The Crew Who Cried Impos

This annoying crewmember is always the one who wastes the emergencies before the imposter can even kill.

They baselessly blame people and appear to be convinced of their guilt. After the first few ejections based on this crewmate’s words, everybody stops paying attention to them.

So True… from AmongUs

So, when they do end up witnessing the imposter kill or vent, no one listens to what they have to say.

15. The Focused One

This regimented player takes tasks seriously. From the start, they know the fastest way around the tasks. They get annoyed when people call emergencies or find bodies. All they want to do is get done with the tasks.

Once they are done performing tasks they keep urging other crewmates to finish tasks. Usually hitting the skip button during votes, they do not appear to be interested in who the imposter is. If the crewmates take too long, the Focused One morphs into the Vanisher.

16. The Assassin

Trained to take down crewmates at the blink of an eye, these killers vanish into the vents even before the bodies hit the floor. They barely have to resort to defending themselves with words. Usually flying under the radar, The Assassin appears to have been born to kill crewmates in Among Us.

These players often become The Vanisher when they have to play as a crewmate instead of an imposter.

17. The Lucky One

Both crewmembers as well as the imposter can be the Lucky One in the game.

The lucky crewmate usually escapes being killed. They get all the easy tasks to perform. Their guess turns out to be correct when naming the imposter.

The lucky imposter vents at the right moment. Even if they make a sloppy kill they do not get spotted. They evade detection, not by being a good imposter but simply by luck.

Usually, other crewmates are too busy blaming each other to notice the lucky one.

18. The Saboteur

Some imposters want to watch the crewmates panic. Every few moments the Saboteur has everyone scurrying to fix the sabotage. They take this opportunity to kill off crewmates. They hope that eventually, the crew will fail to fix the sabotage allowing an easy victory for them.

19. The Immovable Object

This annoying crewmate usually gets banned after a couple of games.

The Immovable Object stands where the crew spawns at the beginning of the game. While the crew runs around them, they are seen unmoved.

Sometimes these players are also the Player on Mute. Yet, there is often the odd Immovable Object that responds in the chat continuing to stand in one place once the game resumes.

Their bodies can be found exactly where they stood throughout the game.

Their ghosts continue to haunt the same spot where they died. They prevent the crew from winning as they never perform tasks.

20. The Karen/Kevin

This player has a problem with everything and everyone!

They keep pestering other players to change their colors and hats. They demand the host to change the settings even if the rest of the players are fine with them. When named as a suspect they hold grudges against the crew member who voted or named them. Eventually, the Karen/Kevin becomes the Vanisher when other players do not bow to their temper tantrums.

21. The Buddies

The buddies come in multiples. These players either are friends outside the game or become friends while playing the game. You will find the buddies vouch for each other during votes.

They have a system figured out where one buddy waits for the other to finish the task ensuring their safety. Many of these players end up getting killed by their trusted companions.

22. The Lovers

Among Us, love stories often end up in heartbreak. When Cyan and Purple fall in love they can be spotted going everywhere together. During votes, they profess their love for each other instead of helping the imposter hunt. All the love ends in heartbreak when one of them turns out to be the imposter. The one who gets stabbed through the heart by their partner becomes the Vanisher after expressing their heartbreak once the game is over.

23. The cheater

Hacks and tricks to finding the imposter or making kills easy exists. Most players do not find it necessary to cheat at such an engaging and easy game. Yet, there are the cheaters who spoil the game for everyone. They exist to cause annoyance and chaos. They derive thrill from getting banned. The cheater is not interested in winning the game, they are focused on spoiling it for everyone. Among Us has started taking steps by banning cheaters with a simple message.

24. The Truth-teller

There are certain players who feel uncomfortable lying to others. What do they do when they are suspected? They come clean. Whether they are the imposter or not they end up telling the truth.

Other crew mates often do not believe the Truth-tellers but after a few matches they end up being blindly trusted.

25. The Perfect Crewmate

This mythical player focuses on tasks, contributes to the voting discussion, votes on time, and even end up spotting the imposter at the right time. While finding this unicorn crewmate is hard, it is quite easy to aspire to be the Perfect Crewmate.
