Among Us kill animations - how to stake friends and exterminate them

Here are the myriad Among Us kill animations that you can perform

There are two schools of thought when it comes to dying in Among Us. If you’re the impostor you think murdering is awesome. If you’re a crew member, well you’re probably dead set against it. One thing everyone can agree on, though, is that the kill animations are some of the best that the game has to offer.

Unfortunately, if you want to watch them in the game you either have to die, or surrender a piece of your soul to the infinite dark by becoming a digital murderer. Which is why we’ve created this slice of content – so you can watch all of the Among Us kill animations whenever you’d like. We’ve already watched them loads of times, and after we’ve finished typing this we’re going to watch them a bunch more.

The animations aren’t presented in any particular order, mainly because picking which one we love the most would be pretty much impossible. Among Us really is the gift that keeps on giving, and if it wanted to give us some more kill animations in the future, we’d only be too happy to receive them.

Simple, clean, effective, pretty horrifying in its cold-heartedness. Snapping a neck is something you should only do in videogames. We say neck, but do Among Us Beans even have necks? It’s almost like they’re getting twisted around the midriff. That’d be horrible as well. Snapping a midriff is also something you should only do in videogames. Best just not to snap anything, really, especially if it’s not yours.

Stab. Stab stab stab stab stab. Stab. Stabbing people in the back is sort of the metaphorical point of Among Us, which makes this death animation all the more telling. That final raise of the hand by the victim is particularly poignant. What are they reaching for? What truth would they tell if they had the breath to whisper it? What buttons might they have pressed were it not for the multiple knife wounds in their spine? Also, don’t stab people, ‘kay?

Ah, the old punch in the face, shoot in the head combo. It’s a classic of the murdering genre, whether it’s in digital or filmic form. There’s another heartbreaking reach at the end of this one too. When you stop and think about it, Among Us is actually a pretty harrowing experience. So we’d recommend you don’t stop and think about it, lest you plunge into a vat of knowing-too-much misery. Don’t shoot people, either.

What in the hell just happened there? What are we going to tell you not to do now? Stab people with your razor edged tongue? Do you even have a razor edged tongue? We don’t. Also there’s an important question to be asked about the dimensions of the Among Us beans. Is that where all of their mouths are? Where are their organs? Don’t they just have one large internal bone? Wouldn’t that be sticking out of the murderer’s mouth here? We’re down the rabbit hole here people.

BWOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWMMMMMMVUHVUHVUHVUHVUHVUHVUHGRRRRRRRRNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSZZZZZZZZZZZFWWWWWWWWWWINGSCHLUCK. If you can do this in real life, there’s not much point telling you not to do it in real life, because you’d just do it to us in real life.
