Amanda Young

Jump to: navigation, search
“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.”

Amanda Young or "The Pig" is one of 16 Killers IconHelpLoading killer.png currently featured in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.

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 IconPerks hangmansTrick.png, Surveillance IconPerks surveillance.png & Make Your Choice IconPerks makeYourChoice.png, 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 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.

Forever devoted to her master's cause, she punished the ungrateful and the guilty with slyness and murderous puzzles. The Pig can move stealthily, dash in ambush attacks and put deadly Reverse Bear Traps on Survivors' heads.

Use the Secondary Power interaction to assume a crouching position. While crouching:

The Pig has no Terror Radius. Activate the attack interaction to dash and perform an ambush attack. Start the trial with 4 Reverse Bear Traps:

  • Reverse Bear Traps are put on Dying IconHelp dying.png Survivors.
  • Reverse Bear Traps automatically sacrifice the Survivor when they trigger.
  • Active Reverse Bear Traps trigger automatically beyond the Exit Gates IconHelp exitGates.png.
  • Reverse Bear Traps trigger once their timers expire.
  • Reverse Bear Traps timers start when a Generator IconHelpLoading generators.png is completed.
  • Survivors can free themselves from Reverse Bear Traps by searching Jigsaw Boxes IconHelp jigsawBoxes.png found around the Map to find the correct Key..

Power Trivia

  • Reverse Bear Trap timers expire in 150 seconds or 2 minutes and 30 seconds by default.
  • The crouching animation or "transition" takes 1.3 seconds.
  • It takes 3.3 seconds by default to put a Reverse Bear Trap onto a Survivor's head.
  • The Dash lets her cover a distance of 16 metres in 2.5 seconds.

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. If you can trap a Survivor before the first gen is done, you will have at least one Survivor unable to work on Generators very soon as they will be searching Jigsaw Boxes instead. Remember not to actively follow the Survivor so the timer won't stop ticking and trap the next victim as soon as possible.
  • If using the RBTs as endgame tools, apply them as soon as there are two or one Generators left. Since they won't be able to exit the trial, they will be easy prey and once you hang them, they turn into bait for other Survivors and you don't need to worry about them escaping as soon as they are rescued.
  • It's easy to keep track of trapped survivors, since the RBTs make different noises constantly while the Survivor walks or runs. If searching Jigsaw Boxes they also grunt louder and you can hear more metallic noises than the usual coming from the Boxes.
  • Crouching is a good way to make a Survivor mistake you for another Survivor. Stay in badly lit areas and try to hide your face using the scenery if you're close to a generator, especially in the beginning of the match.
    • However, Survivors can hear you breathing, similar to the breathing of The Shape IconHelpLoading shape.png.
  • Once you see a survivor you can try to ambush them by crouching, which turns your terror radius off, and waiting for them alongside a point of interest that is close by.
  • Thickened Fog greatly helps Amanda, since it is much easier for Survivors to think you're one of them while crouching, especially if you're looking at the other direction.
  • RBT cannot be replenished and should be used wisely. A Survivor can be trapped with an RBT as many times as you have RBTs left.
