3Papyrus was both way funnier and kind of a better character

Papyrus is probably the funniest character, and I think he's better than Sans. - PeachyBlast

4He is most certainly NOT the best character; that would have to be either Alphys or Mettaton

I like Sans, but I think Undyne and Papyrus are the 2 best in the game. - Garythesnail

5WAY too many freaking recolors
6All of his numerous alternate-universe counterparts, most especially Underswap Sans
7Skeletons aren't sexyV1 Comment
8Involved in so many shippings that it's literally impossible to keep track of all of them
9Undertale, though an all-time great, is quite easily one of the most overrated games of all time
10He isn't freaking Ness, and he probably wouldn't win a fight against Ness either

The Newcomers

?He's been Photoshopped into both Shulk AND Zanza from Xenoblade Chronicles

The Contenders

11Contrary to popular belief, he's a bit underdeveloped for the type of character that he is

I was perfectly fine with this list...until here.


Now, Sans' whole persona may be based around his depression, but that one thing he's based around cuts DEEP. Everything about his appearance, his behavior, his dialogue, even his boss fight connects. As one should know, he's the only character that knows about save files and resetting, which is the reason for his feeling of futility and hopelessness. Symptoms of depression include overeating, digestive issues, anxiety, insomnia, sleeping whenever, fatigue, and a desire to hide one's own thoughts.

Sound familiar?

Think about Sans' stagnant face and blue coat. Blue is used to represent sadness, which is a factor in depression. It is speculated that Sans is wearing a mask (that forever smiles) to hide his true emotions. Yet another way, his depression makes him feel like a...zombie...walking through the world.

12Sans X Toriel is nothing compared to Alphys X Undyne

A thought of a four foot tall nihilist skeleton that likes jokes and a motherly kind goat that is almost two times taller than the skeleton loving each other makes me RoFl

13People have the nerve to ship him in a passionately sexual manner with his own brother

Reminds me of people who ship three certain people from Unova. *shudders* - RiverClanRocks

Oh my god, they are brothers, BROTHERS!

Meh, it's nowhere NEAR as bad as, say, shipping Alphys with the Amalgamates (pauses to go and drink the brain bleach) - xandermartin98

14His jokes are boring, forced and unfunny, whereas most of the other characters derive their humor from having genuinely entertaining and charming personalities

Aren't his puns supposed to be bad though? - RoleplayerR

15He's the most requested Undertale character for Smash...over Mettaton, Frisk, Papyrus and Alphys

Why would they put Undertale in Smash Bros? They have nothing to do with each other. - RiverClanRocks

16Also gets foot-fetish art while Alphys doesn't

I don't see how Alphys not geeting foot-fetish "art" is a bad thing.

Well, just take a good look at Alphys' character design and tell me why she WOULDN'T have foot fetish art (spoilers: she does) - xandermartin98

17His Genocide battle isn't really all that hard, and the Pacifist final battle was honestly better
18Papyrus, Mettaton, Temmie and especially Alphys are all far cuter
19He really isn't as smart as the fanbase thinks he is
20Much like Mettaton's fanbase, Sans' also worships him like a literal god

Just like Alphys said earlier about Mettaton:

"They think he's a god, but he's as mortal as we." - xandermartin98
