I know who the Next Killer is.

I've been searching everywhere for clues of who the next killer might be and I've found the answer. Ever since not_queen said that "The answer is out there, have a closer look." I started my search. And after awhile, I found the next killer is: The Teacher.

At first, I, like many other people, thought there was a hint in the quote. After a lot of searching I found nothing. But while reading further into the comments, one comment stood out. I can't find the thread so I can't give credit where credit's due. But some mentioned that the Teacher might be the next killer because his files have been on the game files since August 2016. At first I laughed because I thought they were referencing Baldi from Baldi's Basics in Learning and Education. So I shrugged it off. The next day, I realized what they meant and looked up the Teacher. It lead to the Teacher's DBD wiki page. If you click on their power, Detention, it leads you to the rest of the killer's powers web page and the Teacher's power after the Clown's Power. THE TEACHER'S POWER WASN'T THERE BEFORE. And it's design looks like the rest of the killer's powers. Here's the link to the Teacher on the DBD wiki but you can also just look him up on the DBD wiki: https://deadbydaylight.gamepedia.com/Teacher. The Devs have worked off of previous things they've work on in the past before. I'd believe they'd do it again.

Other clues that lead me to the Teacher are the most recent cosmetics that came out for the survivors. Isn't it weird how Claudette just received a school girl outfit? I wouldn't put it past Dead by Daylight to reference the next killer by sending out a school outfit. Plus, not-queen said "Have a closer look." What I believe she was referring to was Claudette's new outfit. AND Nea's outfit looks like something you would wear to a Prep school. Much like Claudette's outfit. Feng's outfit I have a theory on. Her outfit reference's science/sci-fi. Now when not_queen said "the answer is out there." she must've have meant extraterrestrial out there. Which leads me to believe the Teacher is a science teacher.

Now if the next killer is the Teacher, that leads us to what his power might be. Detention sounds like a handicap or a punishing ability. Here are some possibilities on what this ability might do.
1. The ability is applied much like the Pig or Freddy and either disables one of the survivor's abilities or disables other survivors from being able to interact with the Detention-ed survivor.
2. Sends the survivor immediately to a hook much like in the Dev's recent game, Deathgarden.
3. If the survivor finishes a trapped generator, they receive Detention and receive a handicap.
They're could be many possibilities. Heck, it might not even be Detention, the Devs might have even made a different power for him/her.

Well I've laid all the facts on the table. I've searched and found an answer. Do you believe me?

Edit: Found the people who lead me to the Teacher idea, so shout out to Iceman and CakeDuty.

    Now that I think about it. The Teacher was rumored to be added on August 2016 and since September is right next to August...

    Well done sir, nice research.

    Thanks for the credit and your take on the killer power is awesome. If it is the teacher then this shall be interesting. I already feel like the next killer will be my favorite killer to play as lol.

    Finally I will be able to teach those b*stard survivors a lesson.

    Sorry to burst your bubble "Not in the game files."

    Not to mention that cosmetics themed around a Chapter will release alongside the Chapter. So the cosmetic theory doesn't seem solid to me anyway.

    OP is doing a snoop

  • Mister_HoldoutMister_Holdout Member Posts: 2,063

    It would be cool if the Teacher could assign you homework and you had to finish the homework before you could work on gens.

    Or you have to scavenge the map looking for instructions on how to complete the gen. It would work like Pig's traps and slow down the game, but I think it should only apply to one surv at a time, otherwise it would be a little OP, since killers could combine it with Ruin, Thanat, and Lullaby to make sure survs never get to do gens.

    No, Mathieu said that next chapter ISN'T in game files. He said that answer is in some map (painting maybe) and that it's not even well hidden.

    Teacher's "retention" perk (wiki) seems the ability to slowdown survs after being hit or any other actions like after finishing a gen or unhooking...

    many school kids play DBD so parhaps you are right and will be next killer

  • GicheGiche Member Posts: 753

    The good old "Teacher killer :D" meme.

    Peoples speculate about him since 2016, and for nearly ALL killer's release.

    Can't believe that those false icons in the In-game files could troll nearly all generations of DBD players since release.

    Also this idea stinks.

    Teacher killer ? Bwhahaha nothing scary nor interresting about that, i personally don't understand.

    We already got a pedophile with Freddy, it's pointless :p

    I'd like to know where he said that clues were on some maps because i'm not aware of him saying such a thing. Every painting that has been posted so far have always existed on their maps and are also all from the Artbook which is over 2 years old.

    If there was homework, Claudette would be the first one done every time.

    Actually the idea is kinda great. Old school teaching was always kinda scary and brutal towards children. Beeing beaten by the teacher's cane and beeing humilated with a Dunce cape etc. was kinda normal. So

    A teacher doesn't need even to be a pedophile to be a horrible figure or work as a killer. It would be enough if it would be a sadistic person. A setting I wouldn't mind. The only thing that makes me think that we won't ever get him, is that the Doctor feels already a lot like such a teacher with his stick and his punishment mode. Even though, he is different themed.
    Anyway, I don't believe it's gonna be the teacher, but I wouldn't mind, if they would go for a oldschool themed chapter.

    When you read through comments, Mathieu said that (Mcote_bhvr)


  • TheBeanTheBean Member Posts: 2,320

    Mathieu did say it was not in the game files... but i think what he means there.. is if you mine the game files, you won't find anything hidden in there. However it might actually be in the game itself.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/deadbydaylight/comments/97pifc/anyone_found_any_paintings_with_clues_for_new/

    Teacher is good idea..

    There was one painting that showed something like train tracks and what could be an old style train station... Then Dave twitted something about "It's watching".. Which makes me think more about a wrist watch and time... So my guess is a train conductor.

    Maybe look in the preschool to see if there is anything in there that might give a tip.

    So according to Matthew the hints to the next killer are "out there, not in the game files" and supposedly not even well hidden. When someone mentioned that there is old artwork, so there was no point at looking at it for clues he said "there are other places to look into." Guys, I suggest we start looking in different maps for things like paintings, etc. Especially in The Game since it is the newest map out there.

    Anyway, now we do know it's not The Teacher, unless he's using reverse psychology.

    I think you might be right. It might be a religious school setting or like a catholic school because of the outfits that we recently got. I think that it matches with the hints the devs been giving us to be honest.

    He replied to a post on reddit... and paintings have changed... other players have posted pics stating of different paintings that haven't been there... but are they the clue and what do they mean?

    I have to say you did a damn good job with research. To be honest school is getting ready to start back up if it hasn't already so it would make sense to release a thing teacher around that.

    Well actually there are game files on the Teacher. https://deadbydaylight.gamepedia.com/Teacher and https://www.reddit.com/r/deadbydaylight/comments/7twch0/the_teacher_removed_killer/.

    His/her game files are: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Dead by Daylight\DeadByDaylight\Content\UI\Icons\Powers

    this is the new killer

    Kuchisake-onna (口裂け女, "cleft mouth woman\Slit Mouth Woman ") The Kuchisake Onna, or split mouthed woman, is a popular figure in Japanese folklore. She even shows up in many modern day urban legends. She often appears wearing a surgical mask to cover her mouth, which has been ripped open from ear to ear. She will ask unknowing passers-by whether or not they think she is beautiful. Often they will say yes, and she will remove the mask, showing them her torn face and ask again. If the person says no, then she will rip their face so it resembles hers.
    There are different rumors about how to avoid her killing you. One is to say she is average, and another is to ask her if you are beautiful, in hopes of confusing her so one could escape while she has to think about what to do next.
    The stories of Kuchisake Onna came from the Heian period Japan, where there lived a very beautiful but very vain woman. Her husband thought she was being unfaithful to her, and cut her face out of jealousy.
