In Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png, there are two distinct roles to play and multiple Characters in each role to choose from.


Each Killer IconHelpLoading killer.png has their own strengths, weaknesses and unique power, whereas Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png initially vary only in their appearance

However, every Killer and Survivor has 3 unique Perks IconHelp perks.png to unlock in their Bloodweb IconHelp bloodweb.png which can eventually be taught to other Characters, these unlock at (Levels 30, 35 & 40).

Every Character comes with its own play style, progression path, Load-out IconHelp loadout.png and customisation options which fit your tastes. Feel free to experiment!

Legendary Characters

Legendary Characters are Cosmetic Sets of Legendary Rarity, which transform a Character into a completely different one, altering their entire Character model.
These Characters are generally legends of the horror genre and typically from other video games, from movies, shows, etc.

Ultra Rare Characters

Ultra Rare Characters are Cosmetic Sets of Ultra Rare Rarity, which transform a Character into a completely different one, altering their entire Character model.
Unlike Legendary Characters, these alternate Character models are not inspired by other legends of the horror genre and tend to originate in mythology or folklore instead.

Costume Characters

Costume Characters are Cosmetic Sets of Very Rare Rarity.
They are a mix of characteristics from Legendary Characters or Ultra Rare Characters in that they are inspired either by other legends of the horror genre or mythology/folklore, but do not alter the Character model.
They are akin to the Character donning a costume of another Character.

Lore Characters

Main article: Lore Characters

Lore Characters are non-playable Characters that only exists in Dead by Daylight's Lore.
They can be mentioned in the Lore of Survivors or Killers, the descriptions and/or flavour texts of various Unlockables, and the Lore accompanying Tomes.

Unused Characters

Unused Characters are known playable Characters that only existed in developmental stages of Dead by Daylight and are currently not featured in the Game aside from at most some assets.

Unused Killers

Unused Alpha Survivors

These are the Survivors featured in original promotional material and Artwork for Dead by Daylight prior to its release in June 2016, as well as in the original Trailer.
It should be noted that they are ALPHA versions of the same four Survivors that released with the original Game, Dwight, Meg, Claudette, and Jake.
This is evidenced by the voice actors and early concept art:

Original Trailer

In order of appearance:

  • ALPHA Meg Thomas
  • ALPHA Jake Park
  • ALPHA Claudette Morel
  • ALPHA Dwight Fairfield (only in promotional Artwork)

It is worthy to note here that during ALPHA stages of Dead by Daylight, Meg and Claudette had switched ethnicities (and voice-actresses) compared to the BETA and subsequent release versions.
This can be seen in the original Trailer and in a screenshot in Claudette's Gallery.


  • Patch 1.5.0 added a new feature called Character Info, which can be brought up with F1 (PC) or D-Pad Right (PS4 and Xbox 1), giving an overview of a Character, including their Lore and unlocked Teachable Perks.
  • Every playable Character has their own unique Bloodweb IconHelp bloodweb.png.
  • As each Character's load-out is saved separately, Items IconHelp items.png cannot be transferred to other characters (with an exception to Teachable Perks).
    • However, Items and Add-ons IconHelp addons.png can be transferred between players in-game by having another player picking up an Item that another player has dropped.
