Among Us Apparently Has Lore Involving A Mysterious White Crewmate
The Among Us Twitter account reveals that a mysterious white crewmate can be seen behind a bathroom stall door in the laboratory on the Polus map.
Among Us fans should pay extra attention to the laboratory bathroom the next time they play the Polus map. According to the game’s developer, InnerSloth, a character can be seen hidden behind a stall if players look close enough. InnerSloth didn’t provide too much context on the lore, but the new information prompted fans to check it out for themselves.
Among Us has been on the market since 2018, but the social deception game saw a surge in popularity this year when well-known streamers and YouTubers picked it up during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns. InnerSloth needed an easy way to communicate with Among Us‘ many fans regarding the game’s news and updates, so the developer finally debuted an official Among Us Twitter account back in November. The account has been very active thus far, with its very first post acting as a sneak peek at the game’s upcoming new map. In addition to news, the Among Us Twitter account has been home to fan art, videos, and fun facts about the game.

On Monday afternoon, Among Us tweeted a GIF of the bathroom below the laboratory on the Polus map. In particular, the GIF showed one of the stall doors fading away to reveal a white crewmate hiding behind it. “EXTREME POLUS LORE,” the tweet read. Maybe the poor guy just wanted some privacy.
Twitter user jazzface273 set out to see for themselves if the lore was true and shared a gameplay screenshot. As it turns out, there really is a crewmate behind the door. It can be a bit hard to notice without really paying attention, but the crewmate’s white body and eye shield can be seen via the crack in the stall.
InnerSloth didn’t go into detail about the lore or explain what led the developer to add the hidden crewmate in the first place. It really leads fans to wonder whether the lore was intentional or not, because it seems unlikely that players would have noticed the tiny detail if InnerSloth hadn’t pointed it out. The tweet raises more questions than answers – who is this crewmate? Are they an impostor? Why are they hiding out in a bathroom? Can crewmates even use the bathroom?
The Among Us Twitter has given players a ton of insight on the game that they probably wouldn’t have received otherwise. Just last week, the account tweeted out some Among Us stats, revealing that Impostors are more likely to win than crewmates. There’s no telling if InnerSloth will go into detail about that mysterious bathroom lore, or if the developer has even more Among Us lore to share, but Twitter is sure to be the first to hear about it.
