Town of Salem Wiki

Unique Roles are roles that are limited to 1 player per game. Usually, there will never be two in one game; the Godfather and Mafioso can be inherited, but even for those, only one of each can be alive at once. Currently, there are 18 Unique Roles.

Most Unique Roles have abilities which would cause gameplay issues if there was more than one player with the same role.

  • For instance, a Jailor jailing another Jailor would cause nonsensical results.

Other Unique Roles have powerful abilities and would upset game balance if there was more than one.

Lastly, some Unique Roles only make practical sense if they are unique.

Amnesiacs can remember any deceased Unique Role of their choosing. This includes unique Town roles.

Unique Roles primarily consist of support and killing roles.

Seeing two unique roles in a game means that one of the following had happened:

  • A Forger has forged that player's role. This can happen multiple times.
  • A member of the Mafia has died after being promoted. This can happen multiple times.
  • An Amnesiac has died after remembering that unique role. This can happen multiple times.
