Roles are shown when a game of Among Us begins. However, the ghost role can only be obtained through being killed by An Impostor or by being ejected. There are currently three roles in Among Us: Crewmate, Impostor, and ghost. Each role has different abilities and mechanics. For example, Impostors have access to kill, Sabotage, and vent.
List of Roles
- Can send messages to all players.
- Can use the emergency button and other interactive objects.

Main article: Crewmate
Crewmates make up the majority of players in Among Us, and must complete tasks while staying alive and figuring out who is or is not An Impostor. The Crew wins once all their tasks are complete, or there are no living Impostors left in the game.
Main article: Impostor
Impostors serve as the Crewmates' enemy, and must kill the Crew while avoiding being ejected. The Impostors win when at least half of the living players are Impostors or the countdown for a critical Sabotage, such as Oxygen Depleted, reaches zero.
Main article: Ghost
Ghosts are an additional role that players obtain when they are killed or ejected. Crewmate ghosts must continue to complete tasks, while Impostor ghosts can assist living Impostors by Sabotaging. If the Crewmates win, so do all Crewmate ghosts, and if all Impostors win, so do all Impostor ghosts.
