Top 10 Best Undertale Characters

The Top Ten
1 Sans Sans 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... read more

Sans is such a complicated character. I am totally a Sans fangirl, but that's not the only reason why I like him. There's so much we know about him, and yet, so much we don't. Toby did an excellent job creating a character shrouded in mystery.

Sans appears lazy, comedic, and maybe even selfish on the surface, but in reality, he's slightly depressed (more so depending on the route), he's serious, and he really cares about his friends. He's the weakest enemy but will give you a serious challenge. He might have also been a scientist at one point. Also, he loves bad jokes, so how much better can you get?

2 Papyrus Papyrus is a character from the 2015 game Undertale, made by Toby Fox. He is the Younger brother of Sans the skeleton, royal guard in training, and a sentry in the town of Snowdin. Opposite to his brother, papyrus is active, loud, and full of himself; but in an endearing way. Papyrus means to become... read more

Papyrus is just a nice sweet guy! Whenever you see him come on screen, you already know something funny is coming. His date is a very fun experience too! Also, he is very smart. Whatever the community says, Papyrus knows about deaths. In the Papyrus is king ending, it is so heartbreaking to see Papyrus without all his friends. Also, I nearly cried when I killed him during genocide.

Papyrus may act like a dork, but that's the reason why I love him! It's kind of adorable and hilarious to see him behave like that. He's such a big sweetheart, too, he just doesn't like to show it.

Also, I'll be honest, he's quite relatable. That moment when you feel like a useless being, wanting to have friends but having none, is something I've experienced. I had depression due to those things. What I admire about Papyrus is that he stays positive and he knows there are still good things in his life. I don't care if Sans is cool, popular, powerful, edgy, or funny. Papyrus will always be my favorite.

3 Undyne Undyne is a main character in Toby Fox's 2015 RPG, Undertale. She is the heroic fishlike captain of the Royal Guard, who takes it upon herself to protect the monsters of the Underground. Her name is derived from the word "Undine", and is a pun on the word "Undying". Her most loved monsters are her mentor,... read more

Undyne is confident, incredibly strong, a bit cocky, and most importantly, a true heroine.

After chasing you for ages, appearing like an ominous clanking metal tower, you discover during the pacifist run that she's a jerk with a heart of gold. Making friends with her and helping her get together with Alphys are two of the highlights of the game. In the genocide run, however, she becomes Undyne the Undying, a badass filled with determination to save her friends and the Underground from you, the real monster. Her death, and she does not die easily, is the most tragic in the Genocide run.

Basically, she's a fantastic character. She's no Mary Sue.

4 Flowey (Asriel)

I always thought Flowey was a great antagonist. I mean, it's a flower with the most horrifying faces ever.

I think the twist with him being Asriel is well done and makes sense. Not to mention just how cool Asriel really is.

Asriel has one of the saddest backstories ever! Also, his fight is amazing and his theme is a banger. Okay, I know everyone likes Asriel but Flowey is great too! He just doesn't have a soul. Imagine how hard that would have been for him to realize no matter what, he could never love his parents again!

5 Mettaton Mettaton 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!"

When you think about it, he's actually quite heroic. In the genocide run, he transforms into Mettaton NEO, who will attempt to fight you but is defeated by a single blow from Frisk. However, Mettaton NEO is not trying to beat you, unlike all the others. While Frisk and Mettaton are fighting, Alphys is evacuating the remaining citizens of the Underground to a secret place (most likely her true lab). Mettaton knows he is fighting a losing battle but is doing it anyway to protect as many lives as possible.

The longer Frisk and Mettaton NEO fight, the more people are saved from Frisk's genocide. He was never trying to win, but to stall. He isn't doing this because his programming dictates it, as he was designed as a human eradication machine. After all the innocent lives Frisk has taken, they are not human anymore. Mettaton is giving his life to save others, making him one of the most heroic characters in Undertale.

6 Alphys Alphys is an adorably dorky, lab-coat-wearing, bespectacled, yellow-skinned lizard scientist who resides in her lab in Hotland in the critically acclaimed cult classic RPG known as Undertale, wherein she partakes in the daily act of watching insane amounts of anime and having a vast majority of the... read more

4th place for me! She is the 2nd most hilarious character. There are many secrets about her, some we don't even know yet, like Gaster and all that. But that may not even be true. Who knows? I don't.

Okay, let's get this down. Alphys is my number one favorite character, no doubt. Sure, people may dislike her for bothering the player during the second half of the game, but honestly, unlike characters like Navi from Legend of Zelda, Alphys can actually be funny and it is very realistic. But I can understand why people can dislike her for that.

Also, I like her character because she is very relatable due to her tragic past and her not knowing if she can come to terms with herself or not. It's just very relatable. But anyway, she is my favorite character.

7 Toriel Toriel is a goat like monster who is the secondary major character in Toby Fox's 2016 RPG, Undertale. She saves the protagonist from Flowey and guides them through the Ruins, of which she is the self-proclaimed caretaker. She is the ex-wife of Asgore, the mother of Asriel Dreemurr, the adoptive mother... read more

I don't know a whole lot about Undertale, but Toriel's character relates to all of us in a sense since she has lost a lot in her life. If she was real, she would be a great mom to anyone. Her backstory is one of the saddest I have ever seen. All Toriel wants is to be able to protect those that are friends to her because she doesn't want to lose another son again.

If I ever played this game, I would stay with her if I had to choose.

Toriel is an amazing, well-written character. She is the tutorial character of Undertale, of course, and she assists you with the game, unlike Flowey, the supposed tutorial character.

Throughout your journey in the ruins, you come to love her, but her flaws become apparent at the end of the ruins where you must fight her to leave. Playing normally, you might think Undertale is a regular RPG that relies on killing enemies to proceed, but this is not the case at all, and you may end up killing a character you learned to love.

Overall, Goat Mom is simply the best.

8 Asgore Asgore 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 to acquire seven human souls and use their power to break the barrier that seals the monsters underground . Aspects of his character are hinted... read more

You can't help but feel bad for this guy. He lost his children, and his wife left him. Now he's searching for revenge, but he secretly doesn't want to. Poor guy. 5th place.

Asgore is so underrated. He is the greatest and most complex character in all of Undertale. Sans knows how to hack life itself and prefers to sell hot dogs and threaten Frisk. Papyrus is naive, yet managed to get a literal god to protect him. Undyne is a fish warrior who struggles at her job. Alphys is a scientist who did cruel things in the name of science. And Toriel left her husband because she loves children and never broke the barrier until it was the seventh child that Asgore needed to open the gate. Asgore, on the other hand, was a father who held no grudge against humans for trapping them underground and also adopted a random child that fell into the mountain. When both of his children died, instead of succumbing to despair, he chose to take action. And he is the bad guy because adults and those in charge are often portrayed negatively.

9 Frisk

Frisk is the main character but even though we all know them and think that they're good, I mean they are, but think about it, they're kind of heroic in a way. If you've played UNDERTALE, you know what I mean. Chara and Frisk are trying to save the Underground. They both have no reason for any hate alongside any UNDERTALE character.

It's the main character. Some people believe that you only truly play as Frisk in pacifist mode, but I believe in genocide mode it's just an influence from Chara, and we are always Frisk. We just choose what we think.

10 Chara Chara is a character in the game Undertale by Toby "Radiation" Fox who is one of the seven people to fall to the Underground prior to the fall of the player character. Their name can be changed by the player and will be assumed as the player character, until the Pacifist Route when Asriel asks for the... read more

A lot of people dislike Chara because newer players who haven't experienced the game often overlook their dialogue. Chara specifically says, "With your guidance, I realized the true purpose of my reincarnation. Power." This indicates that by killing all those characters, you essentially corrupted Chara. Additionally, many may not realize that Chara is arguably the most important character in the game. Why? Because if Asriel didn't mistake you for Chara during the true pacifist run, he probably wouldn't have stopped fighting. Moreover, if Chara becomes evil due to your actions in the genocide run, you can never achieve a happy ending. Overall, Chara is an underrated character and deserves more recognition.

The Contenders
11 Temmie Temmie is minor character from the 2015 game Undertale made by Toby Fox. Made in the likeness of her artist, Temmie Chang, in appearance and character. Both a character and a species of monster, temmies are defined by their mix of cat and dog features, as well as their broken English. Their hidden village... read more

Temmie is funny, cats and dogs are my favorite animals, and she is the only vendor you can sell to. Also, she has Temmie armor, the best pacifist armor.

What, why isn't Temmie number 10 or lower? Mettaton is just liked for "dem legs," but you can actually buy and sell with the adorable character Temmie. Hopefully, people vote for Tem! #Tem2016

Temmie is the best! They are based off an artist and they are funny, happy, and derpy. If you are looking for a cosplay then I would recommend this fun and loved Undertale character. However, the cosplay may take a lot of hard work, hardship, and attention. I am working on my Temmie cosplay outfit right now!

12 Muffet Muffet is a character from the game Undertale. She appears in a region called Hotland, selling pastries to raise money to rent a heated limo to help the spider clan from the Ruins (who are also raising a bake sale) reunite with the one in Hotland because the spiders can't cross Snowdin.

I know it's weird, since she's such a minor character, but Muffet is probably my favorite character in Undertale. On the surface, she seems overly greedy and mean, but that's not the case once you delve deeper. All she wants is to protect her friends: the spiders.

Though it may appear that she's fighting you because she'll get paid, in reality, she only attacks because she thinks you hate spiders and have been told that you rejoice in killing them. The moment she discovers that's not true, she immediately forfeits the money and lets you go, even apologizing for the trouble. Afterward, she views Frisk as another friend and even tries to protect him or her from Flowey at the end of the game.

Her love for her friends and selfless willingness to stand up for them makes me admire Muffet. She's like Undyne in that regard. However, her subtle qualities make her a very interesting character.

13 Napstablook Napstablook is a secondary character from Toby Fox's 2016 RPG, Undertale. He is the cousin of Mettaton, who left him in order to become famous. Due to this, poor Blooky has crippling depression.

He is so relatable. I mean, he's someone who is very shy. Yes, a whole lot of people can relate to you, Blooky. Also, in Mettaton's old house, the story of him leaving Blooky for his dream is so sad!

When I first saw Napstablook, my heart exploded into millions of tiny pieces. Blooky was a character I could relate to, with their feelings and emotions, their love for music, and their introverted nature. There is no reason why you shouldn't cherish this lovable ghost. They are courteous to others, do not want to waste your time, and even Blooky's themes (yes, even Ghouliday) are, in my ultimate opinion, amazing.

It is a shame we do not see Blooky often in the game, but they are a character I will always return to because of the amazing features that make them unique. So, at the end of the day, with the question asked, heck yes. I would definitely kiss that ghost.

14 Gaster W . D Gaster is one of the characters from the very popular game, UnderTale . Basically, he was once the royal scientist long ago, but then was forgotten and left in the void ... read more

WingDings Gaster is the best Undertale character ever, because much is unknown and there are many comics and other things that say so much about him. I recommend 'The Man Who Speaks in Hands' and 'Ask Frisk and Company'.

A true mystery of a character never to be revealed. The first Royal Scientist, a figure who was erased from the timeline when he fell into his creation. Perhaps I should stop there, I needn't gossip about someone who's listening and watching.

Gaster is by far one of the most mysterious and interesting characters in Undertale. He is a mystery and is very mysterious.

15 Greater Dog

Strongest being ever known. Killed trillions of Sans in a different timeline just by looking at them.

A dog that's greater than Lesser Dog must mean he's better and cooler somehow.

Listen to "Dog Song," and you will understand.

16 Burgerpants Burgerpants is a vendor in the 2015 RPG video game Undertale, who sells various kinds of fast food working in MTT Resort, such as a hamburger dubbed "Glamburger", ice cream dubbed "Starfait", and even a steak in the shape of Mettaton's, his employer, face.

He's just hilarious. I think that he is even tied with Papyrus for the funniest character in the game.

"I can't go to hell. I'm all out of vacation days." This sentence sums up why I love Burgerpants. Humor.

Burgerpants is definitely one of the funniest characters in the game.

17 Grillby

Ah, the chill bartender. He really should get his own theme or be a bigger character. He must not want it, though. He really wants Sans to pay his tab then.

He's hot. He's a bartender. He's patient with Sans and his tab. And he has a lovely supposed niece.

Grillby said he would get you a glass of water but doesn't touch the stuff.

18 Lesser Dog Lesser Dog is a character from Undertale. He is part of the Snowdin Canine Unit, and is famous for his long neck.

Fly me to the moon. Wait. Actually, don't. Please.

I spent forever petting him. It was great.

19 Mad Mew Mew

Mad Mew Mew is a really underrated character. She has a great design, a great story, and basically an anime around her.

She is the newest boss added in Undertale, and I already love her.

She was recently added in Nintendo, and I have to admit her boss fight is awesome.

20 Annoying Dog

He is literally Toby Fox! He is honestly a god and he is never annoying. He is always funny. I always love seeing him pop up even if he is a bomb.

So funny! Absorbing the orb, its theme song, it even represents the creator of the game himself, Toby Fox. Come on!

His theme is really good for trolling and is awesome.

21 Aaron

Remove an A, and you get a Pokémon!

22 Mad Dummy

The Mad Dummy is such a weird pick, but a cool character nonetheless. I wish it was more utilized than just one (or two depending on what you play on) mini-boss.

The music is very catchy, and the fight is funny. Why is he rated so low?

What? Why am I so low on the list? Even people who are fanmade and not in-game are higher. Why, why, why!

23 Doggo
24 Woshua

Everybody's favorite germaphobic turtle! Who can say no to that face?

25 Shyren

Shyren is my favorite common enemy in the game, even though they're only found in literally one room. They have so much more character than all the other monsters.

Who doesn't love this stage-ready monster?!
