The Neutral Killing are the group of evil-doers who aren't part of the Mafia, only themselves. As the name suggests, they are all capable of killing at night. Special to this alignment, everyone of its roles is a faction of their own, although such a faction typically only has one member. This doesn't make them any less threatening however, as these roles are some of the most capable killers in game. In addition to their stunning ability to kill, Neutral Killers are all night immune, making them a real headache for the Mafia, as the killers' insubordination cannot be rectified through "normal means".

Because only one faction can win in each game and every faction aims to see every other faction's member dead, Neutral Killing roles violently clashes with Townies, the Mafia, and other Neutral Killing roles that are not of their own. For example, Serial Killers cannot win with Arsonists, but can with other Serial Killers. This also means they can only ever win with non-faction roles (Neutral Evil/Neutral Benign), and their own kind.

Due to their "third party/outsider" nature, it is important for Neutral Killers to keep both the townsfolk and the Mafia equally matched throughout the game, such that when the dust is settled, other factions no longer has the means to oppose the night immune killers. To further reward the killers' ability to maintain balance around town, they always win by default in stalemates.

In most Game Modes, there will only be a single Neutral Killing role in play. More may appear when the random Any role becomes another Neutral Killing role. Most likely, when this happens, the two Neutral Killers will be opposing each other. But in the rarest of occasions there could be two identical neutral killer role in the game, in which case they will be a powerful force to be reckoned with. Rainbow Mode features more Neutral Killing roles than any other game mode (except some Custom Setups): The Arsonist's orange and Serial Killer's blue both appear twice among the Rainbow Mode colors.

Neutral KillingEdit

Role Name Role Description
Arsonist Every night, douse somebody in gasoline. They will not be notified of the dousing. If you select yourself, you will ignite all targets. If you do nothing, you will clean the gasoline off yourself.
Serial Killer Kill someone each night. If an Escort or Consort role blocks you, you will kill them instead of your target, even if you didn't select one in the first place. If you are jailed but not executed, you will kill the Jailor. If you are jailed and executed, the Jailor will live, but any Escorts or Consorts visiting you will die.
Werewolf Go on a rampage on every Full Moon. You will kill all the visitors at the house you rampage at. Like the Serial Killer, you will kill any role-blockers and the Jailor if it is on a full moon.
