The Town Killing are, as its name states, the group of people in the Town who can potentially kill evil-doers at night. Even though the Townies primarily utilize lynch trials during the day to eliminate evil-doers, Town Killing roles' ability can serve as a compliment or alternative to the lynching, which in turn can allow the Town to win rapidly with a majority, or come back from a loss as a majority.

Unlike the killers from other factions, half of the Town Killing roles only have limited killing actions available each game, and some tend to be reprimanded when innocent roles are wrongfully killed by them. Thus, it is important to use their ability at the right time. Only a Vigilante and the Jailor will suffer from killing an innocent, while the Vampire Hunter cannot fault as they can only kill Vampires.

This alignment has 2 Unique Roles roles: the Jailor and the Veteran. These unique roles are also special in that they both deal attacks higher than Basic, and thus can kill many evil roles that the Vigilante can't. This means that both the Veteran and the Jailor can potentially win the game for the Town as the last man standing.

The Vampire Hunter is a different role from the rest in that they have unlimited visits and can only kill Vampires. While they can be helpful in taking down that one faction, against other factions, they are useless until they become a Vigilante. Even then, they only have one shot. Keep that in mind if the Vampire Hunter happens to take the Town Killing slot, but this does mean there are confirmed Vampires in the game. Additionally, because the existence of Town Killing roles are easily confirmed whenever they kill, having only two non-Unique Roles makes it rather easy to deduce the alignment slot. Claiming this slot as an evil role is thus typically the last resort. However, Veteran and Vigilante are the most common claims for the Mafioso, because they fit in their investigation result and are moderately hard to disprove.
