A Unique Role is a role that is limited to 1 player per game. For most of them, there can 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 17 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 too powerful abilities and would upset game balance if there was more than one. The Veteran and Werewolf have these kind of abilities. Lastly, some Unique Roles only make practical sense if they are unique. The Mayor and the Godfather are prime examples. An Amnesiac can remember unique Mafia roles, unique Neutral roles, and all Coven roles, however, they cannot remember unique Town roles. This is because if an Amnesiac becomes a Unique Role while a Retributionist resurrected the same person, there would be two living players with that role and therefore would upset the whole point of a Unique Role. The Retributionist is also a unique role.

Unique Roles mainly consist of support and killing roles. There are two Town Supports that are Unique Roles, two Town Killing, all Mafia Killing, two Neutral Chaos, two Neutral Killing, and all of the Coven roles are unique. Since the Plaguebearer is a Unique Role, Pestilence is also a Unique Role. If an Amnesiac tries to remember that they were Pestilence, they will become a Plaguebearer first, but they will turn into a Pestilence as everyone is already infected.

The Coven is the only alignment consisting of only unique roles. The Ambusher, Juggernaut, Plaguebearer/Pestilence, Pirate and all Coven roles are only playable in the Coven expansion.

If you see 2 unique roles that are in one game, that either may be the Amnesiac remembering one, or a Disguiser disguising as a unique role. If the disguised role is a Godfather or Mafioso, it is likely that those Roles were inherited.
