Among Us characters are distinguished based on their colors and skins. The skins help the players customize their characters in the most unique way. Aside from aesthetic purposes, it can also help prevent mistaking a particular character for another. Some skins are themed related to food, game map and profession. The recent update added skins for the characters of the video game Destiny.
In the Classic game mode, most of the characters are assigned as crewmates and some crewmates are given extra roles like scientist or engineer. The special roles can be added or removed by the host player who created the game room. Regarding the impostor, the creator can add up to 3 impostors and has the option to make them shapeshifters or not. In Hide N Seek, only one character can be an impostor but the crewmates can use the vents like an engineer.

The store also offers skin bundles using stars. The only way to get a star is by buying it with real money using a credit/debit card.
