Top Ten Undertale Characters You Would Feel Guilty Killing

Undertale is an amazing game, and one of its amazing qualities is its cast of characters. You also have the option to spare them all somehow. These are the ones I'd have trouble NOT sparing. I'm not counting Napstablook because you can't actually kill him.

The Top TenXW

1PapyrusProbably the second most popular character from the already insanely popular 2015 indie RPG known as Undertale, Papyrus the skeleton is Sans' taller and skinnier younger brother (much like how Luigi is to Mario in the Super Mario Bros series, except that Papyrus is physically stronger than Sans) who more.

Papyrus is my favorite character in the game, so that in itself makes him a bit difficult to hurt. He also believes that, even in a Genocide Run, you can change and become a better person. It shouldn't be a big surprise that he and Toriel topped the list, because most of the fanbase seems to agree with me on that. - Garythesnail

Papyrus is my favorite character in the game! He's just so nice and friendly and I would hate it if I had to kill him! - Lina1028

I think the only reason why people Kill papyrus is for the Sans fight. - PeachyBlast

I don't feel any sympathy. They all suck. - Swellow

Toriel is there with you right from the beginning, and saying goodbye to her is one of the most heart-wrenching moments in the game. Heck, her battle theme is called "Heartache"! I've seen Let's Play gamers kill her and instantly regret it. I teared up the first time I had the goodbye with her AND when I got to her fight on Genocide. - Garythesnail

I just saw her Neutral fight. Her death was heartbreaking to watch as she screams that she won't die. It's a lot worse than Genocide.

Her death in all 3 modes is gut-wrenching. In Pacifist, you constantly take away her regenerating health, and in Genocide, you've just killed the only person strong enough to stand a chance against you at that point. Think about that, k? - Garythesnail

4SansSans or Sans the Skeleton is a character in the 2015 RPG Undertale created by Toby Fox. He is a lazy, pun-loving skeleton who is a supporting protagonist in the "pacifist" and "neutral" routes of Undertale, and a heroic antagonist/final boss of the "genocide" route. He is known for his incredibly difficult more.

After killing him, he says the saddest dialogue in every timeline: "Papyrus, what are you doing here? " Or something like that. Point is, I literally cried after the whole genocide run once I killed sans. That changed my life to see his normally happy personality break, showing his depressed, angry side. I no longer am the person I was after that fight, and I never want to be. It was truly sad.

Sans is-SPOILER ALERT- the final boss of a Genocide route. His death is pretty sad, but what gets him so high on the list is that you've also got the guilt of killing all other enemies before him. His fight is awesome, but it's also guilt-inducing. - Garythesnail

Sans is a really hard boss to beat, so if you're battling Sans or almost about to battle Sans, as Sans would say, you're going to have a bad time. - EpicJake

What makes it even worse, Your actually happy when you finally kill him. - PeachyBlast

5MettatonMettaton is a character in the popular 2015 RPG game, Undertale. He is a robot with a soul built by Dr. Alphys, and is the sole television star of the underground. Mettaton is a popular character in the fanbase. His notable features include his legs, and his catchphrase "OH YESSSS!"

So what do you love the most about Mettaton? For me, I'd have to ask: is "everything" an option? This guy's hilarious! AND he wants to save humanity from Asgore! Why would you WANT to kill him?
(to be honest though, his Genocide boss is pitiful) - Garythesnail

6AsgoreAsgore Dreemurr is a boss monster and the king of the monsters in the 2015 RPG Undertale made by Toby Fox . Asgore is the portrayed main antagonist who plans the acquire seven human souls and use their power to break the barrier that seals the monsters underground . Aspects of his character are hinted more.

He's not exactly the most liked character in the fanbase, but Asgore had a kind personality, and was only doing what he thought he had to do for his kingdom. - Garythesnail


I'm not even going to explain this one. WHO DOESN'T LIKE TEMMIE! - Garythesnail

I will kill her any day,she is my least favorite character in the game - Nateawesomeness

8The Greater Dog

It wouldn't seem like much at first, but you basically kill a puppy by doing this. - Garythesnail

I can never do genocide because of this. WHY THE DOGS TOBY WHY - Brobusky

9Lesser Dog

Mostly on here for how sad her death scene is. - Garythesnail

The part that really got me was when the spider put a flower at the spot where shs was killed. Very sad.

The Contenders


Especially his genocide death. " S- See! I'm still useful! " "Please don't let me die.." - PeachyBlast

You can kill Burgerpants? Doesn't he just taunt you? - PeachyBlast
