Purple Goo

Role Description:

The Purple Goo will passively and reflexively cause their role to be switched with any player targeting it at night.


I.e. if a Cop targets the Purple Goo, the Cop will become Purple Goo and the former Purple Goo player will become Cop. Since the Purple Goo's ability is passive, it will usually also work on Roleblockers that target it. There is no consensus on what happens if the Purple Goo is targeted by multiple players on the same night. All players targeting it might become Purple Goo and the former Purple Goo might gain multiple roles at once, or the switch might only occur with the player whose action is processed first according to the game's order of operations (if the roles are in the same hierarchy, the host might decide the switch via randomization).

Role of the Day

The Tailor may each night tailor a player, causing that player to be viewed as the opposite of their true alignment if investigated by any Cop abilities on that same night.
