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, just because he's popular. There's so much we know about him, and so much we don't. Toby did an excellent job creating a character with so much mystery around him.

Sans seems lazy, comedic, and maybe even selfish on the outside, but really, 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 bad time. He could 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 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 have none… I had depression due to those things. But what I admire about Papyrus is because 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, strong as hell, a bit cocky, and most importantly, a true heroine.

After chasing you for ages, looking like an ominous clanking metal tower, you discover that she's a jerk with a heart of gold during the pacifist run. Making friends with her and getting her together with Alphys are two of the highlights of the game. In the genocide run, though, she truly comes into her own as Undyne the Undying, a badass filled with the determination to save her friends and the Underground from you, the real monster. Her death (and she doesn't die easily) is the most tragic in the Genocide run.

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

4 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 will transform into Mettaton NEO, who will attempt to fight you, but will eventually be 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 more time 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 says so, 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.

5 Flowey (Asriel)

Asriel is the best character in Undertale. I have no idea why he isn't in the top 10. His story gives off the most feels, his boss fight is the coolest, and he has infinite health, meaning that NOTHING can kill him. He's just a sweet little boy who just wanted to FEEL again. He didn't know what he was doing as a flower. He just did what his mind told him to do. He's also a really cute character, and everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, wants the same thing: to SAVE Asriel. And if everyone wants to SAVE him, then why isn't he at the top of the list? I guess during the genocide run, people just forgot about him and who he was.

In short, Asriel is an adorable character who has the most tragic backstory that I've ever heard. He deserves more love. Not LOVE, but love. All of it.

Don't forget the goat child. After all, he's YOUR best friend.

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

She can be pretty relatable with her dark past, and she's pretty funny! People should give her more credit than she gets today.

Okay, let's get this down. Alphys is my number 1 favorite character, no doubt. Sure, people may hate 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 hate 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 anyways, 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 of things 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 helps you with the game, unlike Flowey, the supposed tutorial character.

Throughout your journey in the ruins, you come to love her, but of course, her flaws shine through at the end of the ruins where you must fight her to leave. Playing normally, you would think Undertale is a regular RPG which 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 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 kinda heroic in a way. I mean look, 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 but I believe in genocide it's just an influence from Chara and we are always Frisk. We just choose what we think.

9 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

Asgore is the literal strongest character in the verse, outdamaging even Sans with an impressive 3500 damage throughout his fight, which is 100 more than Sans.

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 an idiot who got a literal god to protect him. Undyne is a fish warrior who sucks 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 had no problem with humans for trapping them underground and also adopted a random child that fell into the mountain. And when both of his children died, instead of succumbing to despair, he wanted to do something about it. And he is the bad guy. Because adults and people in charge are awful.

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 hate Chara because newer players who haven't played the game never looked at their dialogue. They specifically say, "With your guidance, I realized the true purpose of my reincarnation. Power." This means that because you killed all those people, you pretty much corrupted Chara in the process. Also, many may not realize it, but Chara is arguably the most important character in the game. Why? Because if Asriel didn't mistake you for Chara in the true pacifist run, he probably wouldn't have stopped fighting. Additionally, if Chara becomes evil because of your genocide run, then you can never get a happy ending. Overall, Chara is an underrated character and deserves more attention.

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 armour, the best pacifist armour.

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! He/she is based off an artist and he/she is 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 you realize that's not the case when you look at her below the surface. All she wants is to protect her friends: the spiders.

Though it may look like she's fighting you because she'll get paid to do so, in actuality, she only attacks because she thinks you hate spiders, and she has been told that you rejoice in killing them. The moment she finds out that's not the case, she immediately forfeits the money and lets you go, even apologizing for the trouble. After that, she looks at Frisk as another friend and goes so far as to try to protect him/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, the fact that it isn't as obvious as it is with Undyne, I feel, makes her a very interesting character as well.

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.

When I first saw Napstablook, my heart exploded into millions of tiny pieces. Blooky was a character I could actually relate to, with their feelings and emotions, their love for music, and their introverted complexion. There is no reason why you shouldn't cherish this lovable ghost. They are courteous to others, don't 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 keep going back to because of the amazing features given to Blooky that make them the way they are. So, at the end of the day, with the question asked, Heck yeah. I would be smooching that ghost for sure.

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's 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 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.

17 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.

18 Grillby

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.

Grillby is probably my favorite character. He should be higher.

19 Annoying Dog

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 awesome.

He is not annoying. He is… sweetly annoying!

20 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.

21 Aaron

Remove an A and you get a Pokemon!

22 Mad Dummy

Music is very catchy and the fight is funny. Why is he 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!

Good music, good design. What else to say?

23 Doggo
24 Woshua
25 Shyren

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