Behavior Interactive recently announced the next chapter to come to its survival horror game Dead by Daylight. As part of the new content, 2 survivors and 1 new female killer are included, which curiously breaks with a fetish trend of the title.
Dead by Daylight has a lot of killers or assassins. Next of her, Adriana Imai, better known as The Skull Merchant, will be the 31st antagonist. Not only does she have a technology theme in her methods of hunting her prey, but she has her feet covered in it. .

What is the Dead by Daylight foot fetish about?
If you are a fan of the game, you probably know what we are talking about. To date, Dead by Daylight had not hosted a female killer who didn’t show off their feet. The Nurse, The Huntress, The Hag, The Spirit, The Plague, The Twins, The Artist, and The Onryō all share the characteristic of walking barefoot.
Thanks to this, there is a belief in the community that this is a deliberate creative decision by either a member or the entire studio, although this is something that is still unverified.
Despite this, as you can see in the image below, The Skull Merchant breaks with this fetish trend, as she is the first to wear an outfit that is as lethal as it is conservative, which includes boots that protect both feet.

It is unknown if future Dead by Daylight killers will no longer have bare feet and if Behavior Interactive has left this trend behind. But he shared an interesting statement in which he does not confirm or deny whether there is a foot fetishism related to the killers.
“While we feel something is going on here, we can confirm that a character’s design choices are consistent with their universe, backstory, and personality,” Behavior Interactive told Kotaku aptly using the word afoot as a play on words in your explanation. “We leave it up to our players to discuss whether The Skull Merchant’s footwear affects his performance as a Killer.”
The new chapter Tools Of Torment will debut on March 7, 2023 and will include the survivors Thalita Lyra and Renato Lyra, as well as the original killer The Skull Merchant, all of whom are Brazilian nationals. You can read the story of Thalita Lyra on this page.
Then we leave you with the reveal trailer.
