There is unused content Among Us

Hmmm...
To do:
Revision differences.

Unused Graphics

Right Hand Man Top Hat

AmongUs-DeathRHM.png
The Right Hand Man mustache is in the game files, along with a death sprite. The full top hat cannot be found as of writing.

This hat was leaked on the Nintendo Switch version, which had the Henry Stickmin Collection hats. This hat most likely was going to be added to the Airship Update but was never seen since that leak on the Nintendo Switch version.

Voting Screen

AmongUs-UnusedVotingGraphics.png
In the voting screen graphics, there are early countdown numbers, early vote selection graphics, and a star (which may have been an early I voted! graphic). The countdown starts at 15 and goes down to blank.

Unused Colors

Fortegreen

Fortegreen (actually Eucalyptus Green) is a subtly different shade of dark green from the one in-game. The "forte" part of the name likely refers to one of Innersloth's programmers, Forest W. (also known as Fortebass). It's not entirely unused, as it's effectively the game's "default" color for a player, which can be seen when a new player joins a lobby (their name will also be ??? until they've fully joined). The color can be made fully playable by editing the PlayerPrefs file or using an editor.

Tan

AmongUs Crewmate Color Tan.png

A tan skin. It was removed in favor of lime, the 12th color, as the developers did not want an uneven amount of colors. Due to its removal, it has become sort of an in-joke among (no pun intended) Innersloth, appearing as both an emote in the official Innersloth Discord server as well as being referenced in Completing the Mission.

Unused Sounds

victory_disconnect.wav

Originally, too many players disconnecting from a game would result in a stalemate, and this audio cue would play. After an update on March 25th, 2020, disconnected players are simply counted as dead, making stalemates impossible and rendering this cue unused.

ventGroundEnter.wav

Audio originally intended for Impostors jumping in holes on the Polus map, judging by the underlying sound of rustling pebbles. It likely remains unused because of the cartoonish "phoomp" at the beginning.

Hidden Crewmate

AmongUs-RestroomCrewmate.png
Behind the stall doors in the restrooms on Polus, there is a crewmate hidden from view. The crewmate is barely visible in game, but can be seen by modifying the game to turn the camera.

Cursor

AmongUs-mouseCursor.png
Showcased in the Nintendo Switch release's trailer, and in one picture on the eShop, the Cursor in Among Us was never officially implemented into a public release of the game. According to ForteBass, it was an early replacement for touch controls while in handheld mode, but was replaced by touch controls because it was "kinda slow to do most tasks with[.]" It could be controlled at the time by moving the left analog stick or by using gyroscopic controls. It does appear randomly in the Switch version's options menu, likely unintentionally.

Internal Name

The game was originally called Space Mafia (since it was inspired by Mafia) before settling on the less blunt Among Us. The data folder on Android/iOS still references Space Mafia (com.innersloth.spacemafia).
