Top 10 Songs from the Undertale Soundtrack

Undertale is an indie game that almost immediately exploded in popularity, no doubt in part to its stellar soundtrack. This list is focusing on the absolute best of the bunch.
The Top Ten
1 Hopes and Dreams Hopes and Dreams Cover Art

I've been writing a story-and this song inspired me to create a character that was 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.

All of the music in Asriel's battle is incredible. I love Asriel, but I have to say that Hopes and Dreams is the best in my opinion. You feel that strong jolt of emotion and it reminds you that THIS is the TRUE final battle. It makes you want to jam out and tear up at the same time, and combined with the bittersweet and emotional storyline of the True Pacifist Route, it all fits in perfectly!

I've got 3 good reasons why this is the best for one it fits so well that you actually feel good about yourself and what you have accomplished. Another thing it is called hopes and dreams such a fitting name for a final battle. And it sounds better every time I hear it.

One of, if not THE best music in gaming. Wether you like gaming or not, it doesn't matter. A great piece for the finale and this was the music that got me in UNDERTALE. I recommend listening to the piano version.

2 Megalovania Megalovania Cover Art

You're telling me this isn't the number one? Who made this list? Satan? This song is the best song in the entire multiverse. You can fight me, but even if I lose you still won't be right about it NOT being the best song. Why isn't this number one? Who hates it? Whoever hates it will burn in hell with the Sansyrus and Frans shippers.

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 realize 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, 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..? "

Honestly, who doesn't love this song? It is just so groovy and I find myself humming it all the time. I love all the skeletons so much and sans is just such a good big brother.

Though I have yet to play Undertale (I plan to change that), I've gone out of my way to listen to the OST and this is the best one I've heard. With the newest update in a game called My Singing Monsters, it brought a place where you can make your own songs, and this song has been remade so many times, and most of them are very well-made. This is the best song in the entire game, even if you have to go on the Genocide Run and fight one of the best characters.

3 Death by Glamour Death by Glamour Cover Art

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

This is my absolute favorite... it is just so catchy, with a nice beat and rhythm. It also suits Mettaton perfectly. GO TOBY FOX!

Very catchy, and has a lot of motifs that fit Mettaton completely. Toby made 10 songs into a hundred, and we love them all.

Epic song. I just vibe to the beat of this. Mettaton is my third favorite character in the game.You could already tell which is my first and second favorites.

4 Undertale Undertale Cover Art

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 going to be 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 and melancholic and determined.

This is my absolute favorite song in the game. Its use of actual instruments is implemented so well and it makes you so sad as you hear Asriel's story. I love how the underlying tone remains at the same 8 notes (You know the ones) and then at the very end, it goes up an octave and takes the stage.

Truly the greatest song in the entire game. I am not one to cry in games, but this song alone without the context of the game for some reason has me feeling a lot of emotions. I am sad about the story of the monsters, I am hopeful for the future, and I know the story is soon to end. This is one last walk down memory lane before you reach what you would think is the Finale. Beautiful song, I love it.

It's such a heartwarming song, just like the game itself. So of course it deserves the same title as the game. What I don't understand is why on Earth Megalovania is more popular. It might just be the fact that Sans is the most overrated character in Undertale so that would mean the his song would be over rated to. If you disagree with me I'm sorry, but please at least listen to this song. And I mean listen to it, actually focus on the song and reflect on the game. Now I'm not saying I dislike Sans or Megalovania, I just think they are to overrated to be the top.

5 Battle Against a True Hero Battle Against a True Hero Cover Art

People don't give 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 combinded. 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.

This music captures the essence of Undyne. At this moment, the character has truly transformed into a villain, and Undyne is truly the hero stepping up to save the day through her DETERMINATION. And to be honest, in most timelines, she has beaten me and has prevailed as a hero.

This is OBVIOUSLY the best song because it really gets across Undyne's determination whilst still keeping that tone of pain in it. It shows that she wants to battle to keep everyone safe, and, like the song says, that it is a battle against a true hero.

By far the best track, and one of the more underrated themes. It holds a frantic beauty to it, full of emotion and passion. You can literally FEEL the determination in this song to come out on top. The piano does amazing work keeping the notes of pain there while the rest of the song just communicates a fierce battle to the death, this needs higher up! -ChaotiCast

6 Spider Dance Spider Dance Cover Art

I didn't actually find this song through Undertale. I found it remixed in a game called Just Shapes and Beats, and I absolutely loved it! It was one of the things that inspired me to play Undertale!

This is my favorite undertale song. it is so groovy and I dance to it every time. It just screams muffet and I love how it sounds like dummy, another great song.

Spider Dance is awesome, Sans boss fight is my fave, 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 3 times, so I know UnderTale is awesome and so are the soundtracks.

Spider dance is another very catchy song. Not only spider dance is catchy and matches both Muffet's personality and the fight, but it also makes the fight way better.

7 Asgore Asgore Cover Art

I love the tragedy of this song and how asgore has to do something he doesn't want to do and the whole underground is counting on him. Very good character with a very good song.

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 also is a very catchy theme. But 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 2 items in the copy of Toriel's house in new home in the first room to the right of the entrance. (Lots of info, I know.) 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, 10 attack. This will help a lot in both fighting Asgore and counting how many times ...more

Personally, I think that Megalovania is indeed the most famous, but nothing stops ASGORE from dominating the field in sense of the best song. The dynamics, the structure, the notes... all of it is heartbreaking and is possibly the best song in the game. Toby Fox even put in a relation to heartache, Toriel's theme... wow. Just... this is probably the most underrated song in the game, ranking 5 when it should be numero uno.

This song is underrated. Many people don't listen to the small leitmotifs that Toby puts in the song, telling the story of Asgore. Did anyone notice how Heartache was in ASGORE, but not the other way round? This shows how Toriel is still a part of Asgore's life, but Toriel has completely moved on from Asgore. This is such an amazing piece of music and should be at least in the top 5.

8 Bonetrousle Bonetrousle Cover Art

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

I've heard less than a quarter of the undertale OST. I still love Spider Dance and Megalovania, but this one feels more underrated. Oh yeah, and Power of Neo

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.

Bonetrousle is so cool, and it has the entire Papyrus vibe! It's amazing, and it makes one feel brave, and it can honestly put a smile on my face. I love it so much! It's a real bone tickler (hehe)

9 Waterfall Waterfall Cover Art

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

Truth is, I do Genocide runs over and 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 of 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. The secrets.

Honestly, I'm getting bored of trying the game to get FUN numbers, and once I've uh... 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,

It's the best music to listen when you are stressed. It relaxes you a lot. I recomend it for the ones with stressful problems like me.

Ahh this is one of the best peices of the undertale soundtrack (my opinion) through out the song there is a build up to a fantastic climax. A Very relaxing and calming song.

This song is incredibly beautiful and surreal. I can feel the atmosphere just by the music, it's outstanding.

10 Spear of Justice Spear of Justice Cover Art

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 and 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!

My very fave UT song! MUCH better than this continuous rumble sound that an elevator makes!

I love this song so much! And it's hidden in several other songs in the soundtrack.

The Contenders
11 His Theme His Theme Cover Art

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, and he reveals things about Chara and how he wants to be remembered and it's sad.

This song just makes me cry every time as you get to reach out to Asriel and finally show him the love and compassion that he can finally show back again.

My favorite song in undertale BY FAR. It's just.. I can't even explain it. It's so magical yet it fills you with sadness. Over the summer, I listened to this song in repeat for hours and hours on end.

I love this song so much, in my opinion it deserves to be first. shame its overshadowed by insanely popular songs like Megalovania. Hopefully someday it might be considered the best song in Undertale.

12 Another Medium Another Medium Cover Art

this is my 2nd favorite song besides hopes and dreams this is my favorite overworld theme besides waterfall and core I don't know what else to say it's a good song.

Those first six seconds when it goes from piano to synth are honestly enough on it's 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 up with its wistful beauty. It says "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.

13 Core Core Cover Art

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

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

It's just getting better every time I hear it.

So much energy, I listen to this WAY too much.

14 Your Best Nightmare Your Best Nightmare Cover Art

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... your fighting a savage crazy photoshop. It works.

This is the most underrated boss theme ever. Because it is overshadowed by megalovania. Don't get me wrong megalovania is great too 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

So chaotic and spooky, both adjectives that describe photoshop flowey perfectly. That's what I love about this game's soundtrack: each and every song fits perfectly.

15 Save the World Save the World Cover Art

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 2 or so days to find the original song, but I was blown away by how amazing it was.

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.

Got no clue why, but I LOVE Save The World. If I could listen to 1 song for the rest of my life, it would be this.

I quite like this song it sounds like something in a really intense anime battle! -some anime nerd on the internet

16 Metal Crusher Metal Crusher Cover Art

I absolutely adore this song, 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!

How is this not in the top 10 or even the top 20?!?!? It is just too good to be ranked number 24!

Mettaton is one of the best characters in my opinion, and this fits them like a glove. Perfect.

17 It's Raining Somewhere Else It's Raining Somewhere Else Cover Art

The emotion and at the same time the mystery behind this soundtrack really makes me root for it. One, there's Sans his secret workshop in which this soundtrack plays, and thus the entire soundtrack could even hint towards something really deep within the game! To me one of the most meaningful, deep, mysterious and chilling songs in the game.

Man... emotions... they really hit hard at this point of the game. This music is perfect for the moment of this game. It's in a way, melancholy. At the same time it is also a bit uplifting. I love this song so much!

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 ;-;

Listen. This is one of the best songs in the game (except the intro). Believe me - it brings put all the raw pain and suffering sans has endured and it is the perfect track to reveal sans' relationship with toriel.

18 Ruins Ruins Cover Art

Probably the best song on the soundtrack. It starts the journey on a good note and is constantly eluded to through leitmotifs in the rest of the soundtrack.

What can I say? This is one of the first pieces you'll hear in the game, and it sure gives a good impression. It's so catchy, and just... superb.

It is as good as megalovania and should have the respect as well! You people who don't love it should!

A nice and calming song. I've listened this song a lot, because I like it so much.

19 Dummy! Dummy! Cover Art

Best song in the game by far. Wacky, spunky, fits the character perfectly. Even repeats some notes 3 times, like Mad Dummy repeats words. I could listen to it all day.

I have NO idea why, but this song is one of my favs. 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 it in a way reflects on his character.

Better than Ghost Fight and Spider Dance. It gets me dancing every time.

20 Heartache Heartache Cover Art

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

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.

Vote this song, my child. You have to understand, it's for your protection.

21 Finale Finale Cover Art

How is this not higher up? Why do people keep voting for "Your Best Nightmare," and then commenting that they like this song. Just scroll down and vote for Finale. Don't vote for a song that isn't Finale because you like 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.

The first time I played Undertale, fighting Omega Flowey was one of the hardest boss battles I ever did. But as I neared the end, about to give up, I heard this theme, and it was like someone telling me to not give up! Thanks to this theme (And my sister encouraging me), I stayed determined and continued on to spare Flowey in the end, making my way to fight the absolute god of hyper death. (If you don't know the reference "God of hyper death", It's asriel Dreemurr.)

This is one of the greatest songs in Undertale. It is mentioned before as Your Best Nightmare/Finale, but I thought it deserved its own singular place on this list.

22 Bergentr├╝ckung Bergentr├╝ckung Cover Art

An epic entrance to an epic fight.

The opening to my favorite song.

23 Sans. Sans. Cover Art

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

A funny and lazy song. Just like sans. I like that the song is also used when you enter grillby's.

Great! Why is it so far down?!?!?!

Sans the comedian.

24 Temmie Village Temmie Village Cover Art

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 tummies.

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!

This song is so funny. When I hear it. It's like a rainbow came.

25 Respite Respite Cover Art

I created an entire story with this song. It gets me every time. All the emotions that get me are just too much. This truly deserves to be in the number one spot. I cry listening to this song. One of the most beautiful songs.

Though the definition of Respite isn't the best, this song sure is! It really suits the moment and makes me feel soft inside.
