Unreleased Skins

These are the skins which may be released in the future.


  • Most names of the default avatars come from the infamous witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts. During this time, countless men and women were accused of being witches, and were lynched over the mass hysteria.
  • The Dexter skin is based off Dexter Morgan from the TV show Dexter.
  • The Crimson Katana is based off the ninja characters from the game series Mortal Kombat; specifically, Scorpion's weapons and Ermac's color scheme.
  • The Tamer skins are references to the mobile game Pokémon GO, representing the three team's leaders.
  • Barthule of Far River is based off the Hobbits from the Lord of the Rings books and movies.
  • John Voxelthorne (and the associated map and pet) are references to the popular video games Minecraft and Roblox.
  • The Headless Horseman skin is a less horrific version of the legendary monster in Ireland, Dullahan.
  • The Nosferatu Skin is based off of the 1922 horror movie "Nosferatu".
  • The Uriel skin is based off the archangel Tyrael of the Diablo game series.
  • The Beelzebub skin is based off a demon with the same name hailing from Abrahamic religions. His name is also used in Christianity as an alternate name for the Devil.
  • The Brock Smith skin is based off the Marvel Comics character "Blade".
  • The Necromancer skin is likely based off the DC Comics character "The Enchantress", specifically her design from the 2016 film Suicide Squad.
  • The Candy skin is a direct reference to "Jessica Rabbit", the femme fatale of "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?", a film made by Amblin Entertainment & the Walt Disney Studios that was released in 1988.
  • Yuan Itor's name is a pronunciation respelling of the Latin word 'ianitor', from which the word janitor is derived.
  • Ms. Direction, or Miss Direction, is a reference to the word 'Misdirection'.
  • Not all avatars have the same dominant hand. For example, if you compare the Firebug and Dexter avatars, you will notice that Firebug holds his torch in his right arm (revealing that he is probably right handed), but Dexter has the knife in his left hand (revealing that he is left handed). By this logic, we can say that out of all 66 avatars, 25 are right handed, 11 are left-handed, and 30 are unknown.
  • As of now, it takes exactly 75,080 Town Points to purchase every single Avatar without Merit Points. It sums up to approximately $289 USD based on the currency's root value (260 Town Points equals $1 USD).
  • Only 6 avatars are gagged in the "Burned at the Stake" Death Animation: Lycanthrope, Prince, Knight, Archer, Queen and Necromancer.
  • Jester avatar using the Burned at the Stake death animation.

    When the Jester avatar is paired up with the "Burned at the Stake" death animation, the Jester will start smiling and emit a screech. It is the only skin to provide an unique animation when paired with a specific death animation.
  • The Robot Santa skin has an unique death animation, where a Sleigh Crushes them to death.
  • The Uriel skin has an unique death animation which, when lynched, she will fly upwards into a ray of light.
  • The Beelzebub skin has an unique death animation when lynched, in which he engages in battle with Uriel and ultimately loses when Uriel thrusts him with her sword in the head.
  • The SteamBot3000 skin has an unique death animation, where they violently shake until they explode.
  • The Grim Reaper, Crimson Reaper, and Alabaster Reaper skins have an unique death animation, where they descend into a portal beneath them.
  • Survivor and Juggernaut are the only Neutral roles without an avatar.
