Quotes left.png “At first I actually believed that it was a pig that slept in front of me on the ground. An animal that somehow had eluded the banalities of my old life and managed to end up at this forsaken and forgotten place. But then it rose, from crouch to standing, with its lifeless eyes nailed to my person. I ran, as I have so brutally learnt to do. My curiosity halted my escape after a few feet and I hid in a cabinet. The Pig moved like a predator – and I saw: a human body wearing a pig's head as ornament. It walked by the cabinet and its snout was just a few inches away from me. I held my breath, aching for freedom. A sudden sound caught the pig's attention and it walked away. But not without giving me a last, final glance, as if it wanted to inform me that I was given a second chance. I will not get a third.” Quotes right.png

Amanda Young or "The Pig" is one of 21 Killers Killers}} currently featured in Dead by Daylight Dead by Daylight}}.

She was introduced as the Killer of CHAPTER VII: The SAW™ Chapter, a Chapter DLC released on 23 January 2018.

She originates from the 2004 Horror Movie franchise of the same name, SAW.


The Pig is a tormenting Killer, able to crouch into stealth mode, then ambush Survivors from a short distance. She can also apply Reverse Bear Traps to downed Survivors, forcing them to remove it before the timer runs out, triggering an instant death.

Her personal Perks, Hangman's Trick Hangman's Trick}}, Surveillance Surveillance}}, and Make Your Choice Make Your Choice}}, give her more Map control and expose altruistic Survivors.

The focus of her Perks is on pain and torture. A Hook is not that easy to flee from and all Survivors will be seriously tested when it comes to Skill Checks.

Difficulty rating: Intermediate
(based on the amount of time and effort that is required to properly learn to play her and use her Power effectively)


FK PI charPreview.png

When John Kramer, better known as Jigsaw, planned for his son to be born during the Chinese Zodiac's Year of the Pig, he wanted it to represent fertility and rebirth; a new beginning for him and his wife, and the start of a charmed life for his son. But that plan was shattered on the night that a junkie broke into his wife's clinic, hoping to score.

After this event resulted in the death of his unborn son, John finally caught up with the junkie, making him his first test subject, and The Pig was changed forever too. It became a representation of the disease that was rotting John from the inside, a reminder that we are just meat unless we elevate ourselves by our actions, by grasping life from the jaws of death. The Pig became a vessel, an agent of Jigsaw, conveying the subjects to their test. For some of those who emerged victorious, The Pig could still be a rebirth, into their new lives as apprentices, even disciples, of Jigsaw.

That was the case for Amanda Young, a troubled soul, whose life had been a catalogue of harm, both to herself and those around her. That changed when she faced, and bested, Jigsaw's test. Deciding her life was worth something, she became devoted to Jigsaw's cause, ready to take over when cancer consumed him.

But she became more dependent on John, her anguish at his impending death combining with a belief that their test subjects weren't capable of saving themselves, of being reborn in the crucible of the games.

Seeing this, John presented her with another game, another chance to save herself, but Amanda let her rage and jealousy rule her actions. She failed the test and took a bullet as a consequence.

Bleeding out on the tiled floor, darkness engulfed Amanda's vision, accompanied by a sound like creaking wood. Then she was in a forest, once more viewing the world through the eyes of a Pig. Trees surrounded her, their branches clawing at her from all sides. Waves of panic washed over her and she could hear her breath reverberating inside the mask.

Had she been damned, cursed to spend her days here, in this guise? Or maybe this was another test? Maybe she hadn't failed at all? John always thought one step ahead of everyone else, planned for every eventuality, and he would never give up on her, surely?

Jigsaw may have gone but he had passed her onto another. A being for whom she would be The Pig again.

Ultimately, she saw now that she had been right in the choices she had made. The time for games was over. There was no chance of redemption for any of them. They were meat, and meat was destined to die.

Active Reverse Bear Traps:

"You will give everything to me, every cell in your body. The marks on your arms, they're from another life. We'll leave that life behind. When you walk down that corridor there is no turning back. Do you understand that?" — Jigsaw's Baptism

Change Log

Patch 2.5.0

  • Increased the Terror Radius from 28 metres to 32 metres.
    • Reduced the fade-in/fade-out timer from 6.6 seconds down to ~4 seconds.
  • Decreased the base crouch and uncrouch duration from 2 seconds to 1.3 seconds.


  • The Reverse Bear Trap's main purpose is not to kill Survivors, but stall them. Use them as distraction tools to force Survivors to lose time and make mistakes.
  • Reverse Bear Traps can be used as early or endgame tools.
    • Once a Survivor is trapped, you will have at least one Survivor unable to work on Generators as they will be searching Jigsaw Boxes instead. Remember not to actively follow the Survivor, since if you do the timer will stop ticking, but if you run into them while chasing someone else to trap, hit them to stall them or down them. Do not apply the trap to Survivors in their last Hook.
    • If using them as endgame tools, apply a trap as soon as possible if there are two or one Generators left. RBTs only activate on Generators being fully repaired, so they are useless after the last repair. Survivors won't be able to exit the trial with the RBT on and will be easy prey, turn into bait for other Survivors and being unable to exit the Trial even if they are rescued.
  • It's easy to keep track of trapped survivors, since the RBTs make noises constantly. If the Survivor is searching Jigsaw Boxes they also grunt louder and you can hear metallic noises coming from the Boxes.
  • Crouching is a way to disguise yourself as another Survivor. Stay in badly lit areas and try to hide using the scenery if you are close to a Generator, especially in the beginning of the match.
    • However, Survivors can hear you breathing, similar to the breathing of The Shape Shape}}.
    • This is heavily countered by Perks such as Spine Chill Spine Chill}}.
  • RBT cannot be replenished and should be used wisely. A Survivor can be trapped with a RBT as many times as you have RBTs left.
  • When an RBT is placed on a Survivor, that trap gets an ID. A matching key with the same ID is then placed randomly into one of the Jigsaw Boxes. Only that Box will remove that specific RBT (100 % chance), the others will not (0 % chance). Any Box can contain more than one key. This is a way to guarantee that the chance of finding the key to an RBT is completely random.
  • Placing a Reverse Bear Trap on a survivor drags them towards you a short distance.
    • This can be used to move downed survivors out from under Pallets, allowing you to pick them up without being in danger of getting stunned.
  • If you are using Save the Best for Last Save the Best for Last}}, you can use your Ambush Attack on your Obsession to keep your tokens.


  • The Pig is the fourth female Killer.
    • Unlike most other female Killers, she has a normal movement speed.
  • The Pig is the first Killer to have a second interaction with downed Survivors other than the Memento Mori Memento Mori}}.
  • The Pig is currently the only Killer to have a secondary attack mode (Standard and Ambush), previously alongside The Doctor Doctor}}. This is no longer the case since The Doctor no longer has a Treatment Mode.
  • The Pig is the fifth Killer to wear a Mask.
  • The Pig is the seventh licensed Character and the fourth licensed Killer.
  • When crouched, Crows Crows}} are not alerted to your position.
  • The Pig is the first Killer with two different weapon cool-downs.
  • Due to being short, The Pig, unlike most other Killers, who simply step over Windows when vaulting, grabs the Window with both hands and lifts herself over it.
  • Due to residual code from The Huntress that was used as a basis for The Pig, her carrying speed multiplier was never adjusted to her being a standard Killer in terms of movement speed, allowing her to carry slightly faster than any other Killer. With Patch 3.2.1, this was ultimately adjusted.
