Death Animations in Town of Salem appear whenever an Avatar gets lynched, and appears after the Last Words period has ended. They are a part of the "Customization Options" found in the game, along with other things such as Scrolls or character skins. The player can choose whatever death animation they want, should they have obtained it or bought it.

NOTE: GIF converted animations are not perfect and some are missing side-animations.
All animations for avatars may be viewed on the Avatars article.

Default Animation[]

This is the default animation that every player has access to.

Premium Animations[]

These are the animations that you can buy from the in-game store using Points. As of right now, there are currently 7 Premium Animations that can be purchased.

Unique Animations[]

These are the animations which appear for specific Avatars.


Jester avatar using the Burned at the Stake death animation.

  • The Blast Off death animation is based on the Dragon Ball series.
  • When using the Jester skin and Burned at the Stake animation, the Jester skin smiles and cackles as they burn. When using the default hanging animation and the Witch skin, Witch will burn and disappear at the end of the animation. When using the golden skins and the Burned at the Stake animation, the Golden skin will melt. These are the only known unique animations that can be created by pairing a skin with a death animation.
  • Any avatar's accessories that are worn with the Burned at the Stake death animation will appear in the avatar's ashes.
  • Blast Off has unique effects depending on the avatar used, and can impact characters who would not be conventionally affected by it (ie. not having hair) uniquely. For example, the Plaguebearer skin changes its color palette to be primarily bright green with bright yellow as a secondary color, mostly on the beak.
