Among Us Character Guide – All You Need To Know About the Among Us Characters

The characters in the space-themed social deduction game Among Us are the crew members of a spaceship or alien imposters disguised as crewmembers. Among is a 2018 multiplayer game based on teamwork and… betrayal, as its developer Innersloth states.

In Among Us game rounds consists of 4-10 players connected online or on LAN where the goal of the crewmates is to save the spaceship and guarantee a safe trip back home. However, the games include 1-3 alien imposters whose goal is to kill all other crew members.

The characters in Among Us look identical to one another with their uniform's color being the only exception. They are humanoid creatures (humans & humanoid aliens), wearing full-body spacesuits and carrying small oxygen tanks that look like backpacks.

The Among Us characters are crewmembers of a spaceship invaded by a strange and deadly imposter. They’re humanoid creatures with a portly appearance, and they wear full-body spacesuits and small backpacks. The backpack’s purpose is unclear, though our best guess is that it’s an oxygen tank of some kind.

The crewmembers' tasks vary depending on the map, including throwing out the spaceship's garbage, performing a med scan on another crew member, fixing the spaceship's shields, destroying asteroids, fixing electrical wiring, aligning the engine output, or diverting power from one mechanism to another and more.

The Among Us Characters

The Among Us characters don't have any backstories, nor any names. The players can input their character's names. Among Us also offers some character customization features beyond changing a character's name.

You can change your character's color of the space bodysuit or add cosmetics, including hats, skins, and pets. You can customize your Among Us character in the lobby area just before the game starts.

The only character role distinction in Among Us is that of the crew members (the main protagonists) and the imposter(s) (the villains).

The only way to 100% distinguish Among Us characters is the color of their spacesuits. Since there are 12 available spacesuit colors, there are 12 Among Us characters.

Innersloth plans to bring 15 player support with the next big Among Us update and since 12 characters (or colors if you prefer) are not enough to cover 15 players we can expect that their will be at least 3 new characters introduced to the game.
