Top 10 Songs from the Undertale Soundtrack

Undertale is an indie game that almost immediately exploded in popularity, undoubtedly due in part to its stellar soundtrack. This list focuses on the absolute best of the bunch.
The Top Ten
1 Megalovania

Ok, let's get to the point. This is a very overrated song. That does not mean it's not good, though. It is in a solid 4th place for Undertale.

Fighting Sans and hearing Megalovania 100 times got boring. I never thought this song would get boring, but whenever I hear it, I get frustrated. I've heard this song a thousand times from trying to beat him. But then I realized who Sans REALLY is. He's not just some laid-back skeleton who tells puns and does nothing with his life. He's a caring brother, he can acknowledge timelines, and he knows what the player is doing. Undertale NEVER forgets.

No matter how many times you reset, you are putting the remembers, Sans, Flowey, and Gaster through hell. "Don't tell the other Sans-es, ok?" "Look, I gave up trying to go back a long time ago." Not back to the surface, but back to his timeline!

Like that bunny person at the shop in Snowdin: "They just showed up one day and asserted themselves." Sans wants to go back to his timeline, when Gaster didn't fall into the Core and end up in the void.

"Papyrus... do you want anything?"

2 Hopes and Dreams

Not only does this song go insanely hard, it just encapsulates the feeling that any and every finale song in a video game should.

I've been writing a story, and this song inspired me to create a character based off of hopes and dreams. Someone truly good, but threatening. I've come up with ideas for all kinds of twists thanks to this song. It makes me happy, and I sing it all the time, especially since I'm going through a hard time. Music has helped so much, even this song. Some other songs I'd recommend if you like this one are C-R-O-W-N-E-D, An Unwavering Heart, Zinnia Battle, and ORAS Ending.

3 Death by Glamour

This song is just good. It matches Mettaton's style and looks. But that doesn't matter. It's really good because of the It's Showtime leitmotif.

Death by Glamour is amazing! It gives off Mettaton's entire vibe. It's fabulous, amazing, beautiful, and it fills me with determination!

The beat drop before the "It's Showtime" leitmotif is just awesome, and the "It's Showtime" part is just so good.

4 Spider Dance

Spider Dance is awesome. Sans' boss fight is my favorite, but you can't deny the awesomeness of Spider Dance.

I've never personally played Undertale, but I watched full Pacifist, Genocide, a bunch of AUs, and listened to all of the soundtracks at least three times. So, I know Undertale is awesome, and so are the soundtracks.

When I'm listening to Spider Dance, certain parts remind me of certain parts in the battle, and it's one of my favorite battles in Undertale. I wouldn't say it's my favorite song, but when I'm trying to relax, it is.

5 Asgore

I personally love this song because it just fills you up with determination as you fight Asgore, who is actually a really hard boss. I learned that by dying 5 or 6 times while fighting him, when I usually would die 2 or 3 times while fighting other bosses. Also, the attacks are very hard. It's not just that it actually fills you with determination, but it is also a very catchy theme.

For those folks who are playing Undertale and are stuck on the Asgore battle, I'll tell you some secrets:

First, use the heart locket and the worn dagger. You'll find these two items in the copy of Toriel's house in New Home, in the first room to the right of the entrance. These have the best defense and attack.

Next, stock up on food. You'll need it a lot when you're fighting him. Once you are prepared to fight him, go out and do so. Start by talking to him until he loses 10 defense and 10 attack. This will help a lot in both fighting Asgore and counting how many times you've died.

After that, start hitting the fight button. That will be your only option afterwards. If you're aiming for a true pacifist route, spare him once the mercy button is back together. After that, be prepared to fight Omega Flowey. Hope this helped!

6 Undertale

What's the best way to really punch a point across? I'll tell you. An acoustic guitar.

New Home is the final section of UNDERTALE, and it is also the shortest. There are no fights, just story. During your journey throughout New Home, the monsters tell their side of their story and express their happiness at finally being free. That's why Undertale (the song) is happy, not melancholic. It invokes empathy, which is the main point of a Pacifist run: to share and understand the emotions of others.

The segment and the music flip everything completely on its head. The first REAL recording of an instrument, the fact that it's just Toriel's house again, the story. All of this combined with the music just piles up the impact more and more. Fabulous song, both uplifting, melancholic, and determined.

7 Bonetrousle

For one, I wish Bonetrousle was longer, but it's still great. Not my favorite song, but I still love it. Whenever there's an annoying song stuck in my head, I always think of Bonetrousle.

Also, I like it because it's not Megalovania. #overrated

This is just a classic. I can play it on the trombone, and it is so groovy. Papyrus is such a good character, and this song definitely deserves a spot in the top ten.

It is my favorite song.

I feel that people's minds usually go to the bigger songs of the game, but it's always fun to listen to the classics.

8 Battle Against a True Hero

I can't describe how deep this song feels. It makes you feel that you're in the most epic fight ever. Then, a moment of calm comes, making it clear that Undyne is starting to be really hurt.

But instead of giving up, the song strikes once again for the final and most intense assault, in which Undyne gives all that she's got, showing her determination.

People don't give Battle Against a True Hero (BAATH) the credit it deserves. Megalovania and Hopes and Dreams are always on top, with the others being 10% or lower. BAATH is a masterpiece that deserves better. It also has one of the hardest boss fights in the game, and at the same time, one of the best. Hate me all you want, it's better than Megalovania and Hopes and Dreams combined. Mainly because they would sound terrible when put together, but you get the point.

So, uh, yeah. I like BAATH better than almost every one of the tracks. Only His Theme and Bring It In, Guys! have a chance of rivaling this epic theme. However, in order to hear this epic theme, you'll have to do a genocide run. Too bad we have to be a mass murderer just to hear this song.

9 Spear of Justice

To be honest, my favorite thing about Undertale is the absolutely perfect music, and "Spear of Justice" is one of those pieces of perfect music. You have to admit it's a very catchy song.

After playing Undertale, I started to wonder how Toby Fox made these amazing pieces of music. Also, if you listen closely to "Ruins," you can actually hear part of "Spear of Justice" but in slow motion in one part.

The theme of Undyne really brings the whole character into the song itself - how Undyne is the real hero of the underworld and how she is literally loaded with determination. Shouldn't be this low - Top 10 at least!

10 Core

Core is so intense, but what I like about it is that it's not a boss fight. The song shows the intensity and how many monsters you need to fight.

I love the song. When I'm typing this, I can hear it in my head.

So full of energy. Perfect for, well, a power plant.

The Contenders
11 His Theme

Personally, this is my favorite. It's so hopeful, yet kind of sad at the same time. After a long fight, after saving your friends from their own fears, you finally get to save Asriel. This moment is so heartfelt, and songs in the Undertale soundtrack lead up to this by containing this leitmotif. And it leads up to the moment where (spoilers) in the True Pacifist route you go back and talk to Asriel. He reveals things about Chara and how he wants to be remembered, and it's sad.

This song represents that happy feeling that everything came to a good resolution, yet it's sad because you know that whatever happens, this is the end.

12 Save the World

I'm not 100% sure why this is my favorite song, but I just love it to death. I originally discovered this from an Undertale medley when I heard the soft piano part, and I went on a search to find it.

I think it took about two days to find the original song, but I was blown away by how amazing it was.

A better version of Hopes and Dreams that makes the second half of Asriel's fight feel like a victory lap. The fight wouldn't be half as good without it.

I'd lump this in with Hopes and Dreams, but if I have to choose, I prefer this one.

Also, learning it on guitar was fun.

13 It's Raining Somewhere Else

The emotion and, at the same time, the mystery behind this soundtrack really make me root for it. First, there's Sans' secret workshop, in which this soundtrack plays, and thus the entire soundtrack could even hint towards something really deep within the game!

To me, it's one of the most meaningful, deep, mysterious, and chilling songs in the game.

Ah, pain.

For real though, when you really learn who this punny guy is behind the jacket, this song becomes way worse (by that I mean emotional) to listen to. He tries to stay calm, but he just... I have to stop.

14 Waterfall

Along with the song "Undertale," there's just something different. It's mysterious, like the game is hiding something. I love it.

Truth is, I do Genocide runs over and over again because there's no climax. They just die. Except for Sans, and the first time you kill Toriel, depending. And of course, Undyne.

I can't bring myself to play Pacifist. I'm scared that I might have ruined it. Sans remembers it. Flowey remembers. What if it messes up? I've received lots of hate for this.

Waterfall is basically making me want to play it because of the secrets.

Honestly, I'm getting bored of trying the game to get FUN numbers, and once I've seen the gray Gaster followers and even Gaster. But I feel there's more to learn in the Pacifist run.

Waterfall... The secrets are held there.

15 Metal Crusher

I absolutely adore this song. It's really catchy and screams Mettaton "playing the role" of the evil yet fabulous villain!

I don't know why, but I LOVE this song so much! It might be that I'm obsessed with Mettaton, but the beginning is sick!

I just like the beeping noises at the beginning of the song. I don't care about the rest.

16 Another Medium

Those first six seconds when it goes from piano to synth are honestly enough on their own to make this my favorite, and the whole song gives such an energetic yet chill feeling. Absolutely beautiful and super underrated.

It has great energy paired with its wistful beauty. It conveys "don't give up" perfectly without actual words. Definitely one of the best songs in the game.

Perfectly captures the feeling of being alone but not lonely. Very underrated.

17 Your Best Nightmare

I did not like this much as a song, but the ending is AMAZING! Also, the song in the first place suits the fight better than any other songs and their fights because... you're fighting a savage, crazy photoshop. It works.

This is the most underrated boss theme ever, overshadowed by Megalovania. Don't get me wrong, Megalovania is great too, but I decided to vote for this to help it get some recognition.

Your Best Nightmare has a very eerie vibe, which goes well with the shock of Omega Flowey. However, I think Finale is the most underrated song, and I personally love it. Not as good as some, but still great.

18 Heartache

Honestly, I love this song not because it's very cool, but because of the emotion in the battle. It makes me feel so sad, and it should be ranked a lot higher than it is.

This is the most emotional and catchy tune of any soundtrack ever, except maybe Sans or Song That Might Play When You Fight Sans.

How is this not up higher? It's a really great song. I could listen to it for hours.

19 Finale

This is pretty much the best "OH HELL YEAH" moment in the whole game. This fight is really chaotic, especially right after the pretty between-the-lines Asgore fight. Your Best Nightmare makes it feel even more crazy, and also, this fight feels like it goes on FOREVER. It's a good 10 minutes along with the Asgore fight.

So after a long, chaotic battle which feels like it's going to go on forever, this happens. Suddenly, you have a chance. It makes the determination everyone's been talking about feel like it's really there, like some invisible force.

It goes without saying that this is my favorite song in the whole soundtrack. Except maybe ASGORE.

20 Sans.

In my opinion, Sans should be higher on this list. It perfectly fits the character of someone humorous like Sans.

A funny and lazy song, just like Sans. I like that the song is also used when you enter Grillby's.

21 Bergentr├╝ckung

An epic entrance to an epic fight.

The opening to my favorite song.

22 Fallen Down

This track really sounds like Toriel caring for you. It's relaxing. If I listened to this at night, I would be asleep in a jiffy.

It's the perfect background music. It's very calming.

I can play it on the piano. It is a great song.

23 Dummy!

The best song in the game, by far. Wacky, spunky, fits the character perfectly. It even repeats some notes three times, just like Mad Dummy repeats words. I could listen to it all day.

I have no idea why, but this song is one of my favorites. It feels right, and the fact that it's against a wait-out boss means that I can listen to it and hear the whole thing by the time I finish the fight.

Dummy! is a great song. It's a mix of Spider Dance and Ghost Fight, and in a way, it reflects his character.

24 Temmie Village

A lot of people think this song is stupid and bad, but if you think about it, the song is supposed to represent the personality of the Temmies.

Oh, come on. Though it can be considered stupid and annoying by some people, it's a big favorite for me!

All you need to know is that whenever I encounter a Temmie, I always scream TeMmIe!

25 Dogsong

There's a Dogsong version of every track in Undertale. Therefore, Dogsong is superior to all.

This is the most underrated good song on this entire page.

What do I have to say about this song...
