Among Us Fan Recreates the Games Kill Animations but With an Anime Twist
Among Us fan recreates the kill animations and replaces them with popular anime moves.
Among Us has certainly been a hot topic with gamers over the past few months. Although it initially released in 2018, Among Us saw a huge rise in player popularity after many well-known Twitch streamers and YouTubers started playing it and since then, most of us have been lining up to try and guess who the murdering imposter in the group could be or to try and hide the fact that we’ve been the imposter all along. The game even went as far as to dethrone the highly successful Fall Guys off the top stop on Steam so it was only a matter of time before someone came in and recreated the Among Us kill animations with something a little more creative.
Landon, an artist, streamer, and sketch comedian who has a huge love for anime and video games, has recreated the kill animations on Among Us and replaced them with anime finishers. Usually, when you get killed by the imposter, the kill animations are a mix between backstabbing, gun-shot to the head, or a neck twist but Landon’s very own anime kill finishers look fantastic, especially so if you’re a big anime fan. Some of Landon’s anime kill moves come from popular Japanese anime like Jo Jo’s bizarre adventure, Luffy’s stretchy arms in One Piece, Kage Bunshin from Naruto using the Shadow Clone Technique, and Deku from My Hero Academia. Could you name them all?
This new and interesting anime twist on how you kill other players in Among Us would surely be a refreshing change to some of the standard ways of taking someone out and I’m also pretty sure players would love it see this or at the very least, be able to customize their very own kill animations. I can just imagine the number of bodies everywhere as eager players try out their very own Shadow Clone Technique or Luffy’s stretchy arm kill spree on unsuspecting victims. You can check out Landon’s YouTube clip below and who knows, many this will give the developers some ideas.
In some other Among Us news, we heard last week that the game’s developer, Innserlsoth, announced that they’ve canceled plans for the sequel and will keep improving on the original game. In a post on their website, the developer said that they’re canceling Among Us 2 and focusing on making the original game even better. “We have decided to cancel Among Us 2 and instead put all our focus into improving Among Us 1,” said the developer in a statement. “All of the content we had planned for Among Us 2 will instead go into Among Us 1. This is probably the more difficult choice because it means going deep into the core code of the game and reworking several parts of it. We have lots of things planned and we’re excited to bring new content to everyone as you continue to enjoy playing.”
Among Us is available now on PC, iOS, and Android.
