The Mafia Killing (MK) alignment is the group of people in the Town that, as their name suggests, kill for the Mafia. The included roles are all Unique Roles. Thus, the category itself can never be explicitly chosen in the role list.

Unlike the Coven, all Mafia Killing roles are able to Attack every Night and are also less susceptible to being discovered by role blockers, especially the Jailor who overrides Role Block Immunity. However this only applies for the Mafioso + Godfather combo and Ambusher. Thus, it is important for the Mafia to keep both the Mafioso and Godfather alive until all the Escorts and the Jailor are dead, as those roles can paralyze the Mafia if they find the Godfather when the Mafioso is dead. The Ambusher, meanwhile cannot be discovered by role blockers, but they can be discovered by Mediums or multiple visitors if they attack someone.

The Godfather, a role able to consistently kill and withstand attacks from many roles, while staying perfectly under the radar of the Town Investigatives (especially with a Mafioso), can be a major threat for all other factions and has the ability to eliminate any Townie or Coven member they desire. However they, like all other Mafia Killing roles, have a mere Basic Attack, meaning they must use the gallows and the support of the Town to kill off night immune roles.

Special to this group are the promotion mechanics – Should the Godfather be killed, the current Mafioso (if there is one) will be promoted to the Godfather. If there are no more kill-capable Mafia roles left, a remaining member of the Mafia will be promoted to a Mafioso, but won't be promoted to the Godfather unless an Amnesiac remembers themselves as the Godfather and dies. The Ambusher can also be promoted to a Mafioso.

The message a player receives when they are attacked by the Godfather or a Mafioso is: "You were attacked by a member of the Mafia!". The death message will be "They were killed by a member of the Mafia."

The message a player receives when they are attacked by an Ambusher is, "You were attacked by a member of the Mafia!". However, the death message will be "They were killed by an Ambusher."
