Top 10 Most Overrated Undertale CharactersLuxam Remember, overrated does not necessarily equal bad. In my opinion, & possibly others, these characters either get too much attention or that they're not as big of a deal as most people make them out to be. If your favourite UT character is on here, don't rage about it in the comments. Respect these opinions, & yours get respected.
Also, I'd like to apologise for being inactive for such a long time. It's been months since I even last visted this site, let alone make anything. Hopefully not everyone's forgotten about me on here completely. If everyone has, that wouldn't be a surprise.
Well, have this list for now.
The Top Ten
I painfully agree. Sans, being the fan-favorite character in Undertale, is overrated and overused much more than he was meant to in my tastes. I love Sans, I have honestly got to say, but boy the fandom just uses him so much, I feel they use him like how many times people blink in a day (metaphorically). Keeping this brief, I from the bottom of my heart, think the other characters deserve more fame. Sans is the favorite and known for his fight, but the others are so underrated it's almost as if Sans is a god and they are the pheasants! For example, Alphys, the royal scientist, or the minor characters, such as Greater Dog or Grillby. It pains me to say, but in all technicalities (don't know if that is even a word), Sans is the character used the MOST, second for me being Papyrus, and needs to be used at least 35% or more. Furthermore, Sans, as agreed to this post, is the most overrated character in Undertale.
I hate how the fandom treats Sans. He is not a bad character, but people make him more of a big deal then he already is! We know he is powerful, we know he is depressed, but people take that and make him look unbeatable, they make him look like a Mary Sue. When he is not! He has problems with his fighting style, hell he only has 1 hp, he sits around and watches his fellow monsters die right in front of him, even his own brother. Just realize, you just got to wear him down, remind him of all HIS sins, and he will fall, like any of us would. So what I am trying to say is, yes Sans is the most overrated, overused, over exaggerated character in all of Undertale, because the fandom transformed him into something he was not. I rest my case.
How is Flowey at #1? This should've been #1. Anyways...
Sans is often just liked by fans for his puns, and his boss fight in Genocide. The fanbase treats him like a god, so if they find out you hate him, they'll flame you with "You're gonna have a bad time." Not to mention, Sans is SHIPPED WITH FRISK, though there are no hints of romance between the characters, the closest they can get is being close friends. Apparently, the fanbase also makes OCs that are knockoffs of him, said OCs almost always purely exist for the sake of shipping themselves with Sans, and to make them overpowered.

How is flowey overrated?
Flowey is my favorite character, but he is underrated... Papyrus should be at no.2 in my opinion
Flowey wasn't hated at all
Smh, Flowey is underrated.V 11 Comments
She's the fan-hated character of the game, but I can't get enough of her. Her adorable, relatable and funny dialogue and phone calls, her cutesy romance with Undyne (witch is and will stay the only ship I approve) Her still deep and saddening backstory and struggle with social anxiety and guilt that DOESN'T fall in the cringy "edgy" category... Gosh, she deserves way more credit. Way more than sans at least. Nerd lizard best lizard.
Who put Alphys here? She is underrated.
Alphys deserves more fame then Sans.
I like alphys.
Everyone hates alphys.
Aliens hate alphys.
Why? I don't know. - WarioMan
BUT THEY DRAW HER LIKE one of your French girls
NU NOT GOAT MOM! Toriel isn't underrated at all! She just wants us to stay with her, be her child. She is pretty lonely in the ruins you know.
She's not THAT bad, unlike... (groans) SANS.
The only reason is... the... the... f-f... FANART! It's disgusting and gives me nightmares! And Soriel... just no... WHO SHIPS A 100+ YEAR OLD WITH A 20 YEAR OLD SKELETON?! Poor Asgore. I bet that is why she is even on this list. - Darktail_of_FireClanV 5 Comments
I had to give up geno because of him. Like, he knows your about to absolutely destroy him, and he knows that he will be dead in five minutes, but is he mad? No. He still believes in you, and tries to make friends with you. No wonder sans is mad at you in true geno. - SansTheComic
He's a great character, but I feel like people aren't aware that they're doing a (less extreme) version of what they did to Sans, by making him seem better than he is, or whatever.
I like this character but I've seen things... People doing... Things... To papyrus... - WarioMan
The only reason why I would ever consider him overrated:
Everyone complains that he's underrated.
Is sans' brother.
He is underrated:
Sans overshadows him almost completely.
That's pretty much the only needed reason for underrated. - Darktail_of_FireClan
Every time I try to search for his box form, BOOM! There's gotta be an image of Mettaton EX saying "OHH YES! ". Not that I hate it, I love it, it's my favorite, but, the box form should get more attention as well.
OHH YES! Mettaton needs more love. Everyone is obsessed with Sans, and I'm over here like, "WHO NEEDS ARMS, WHEN YOU CAN HAVE LEGS LIKE MINE! " How can you hate Mettaton? You just, can't.
Who needs arms when you've got legs like those. - Brobusky
Thank god he sacrificed! - UntitledManV 8 Comments
I absolutely HATE that people think Chara is evil. You know who taught her that? Go look in a mirror. Every Undertale Mary Sue backstory says "they tried to protect Asriel from Chara, but they couldn't and he died" NO. I'm SICK OF YOU PEOPLE SAYINg THAT CHARA IS EVIL. To me, she's like mapleshade (hi warriors fans) she's misunderstood. Chara wanted to go with her bro to the surface and kill her torturers (she was probably hurt mentally and physically explaining the rosy cheeks and why she laughed off her dads near death experience, being that she was so hurt mentally she had a nervous breakdown and had to get it out any way but crying, for she probably hated weakness after the surface) mapleshades kittens died so she killed any cat she believed responsible for their deaths. The dark forest changed her after she died. Chara was with you in pacifist too if you hadn't noticed. She said herself your determination awakened her. At the end of genocide she decided, "hey I'm sick of being ...more
That. Was. Beautiful. Who wrote this? You sound like you're a pro! Also hi warriors fan! - Darktail_of_FireClan
Have you heard of that one person going around on DeviantArt and typing on people's profiles things like: "Hey! Can you draw Chara with a big tummy or big boobs or a big butt? " It's just like.. No...
Definitely overrated! Everywhere I look, Chara is just some evil awful character with that hate of everyone. She's more than that... so I agree.
What's so appealing?
We barely know anything about it.
Yes, it. It doesn't deserve to be identified as a human.
THEY'RE NOT EVL U just HAT CHAR! 72Q376TE823UQJS11111!
Then why do they ask you to erase everything? Why do they want to take your soul?
fOR CHOOCtlae! HAHAA! I besteD U IDioT! 11111111111111!
It should be at the top. Way too overrated -.-
I seriously think the people in these comments are under 8 years old. - izayaorihara
He's cute and tragic and all, but honestly, we only see him for all of five minutes. And yet people still love Asriel enough to want to sacrifice Frisk to save him.
Asriel Dreemurr is a furry. People have no right no hate on So Sorry without hating on Asriel. That's the truth. - WarriorCatsHater
Why aren't people seeing him as overrated? Adriel and sans are the top competitors for overrated.V 7 Comments
She may be cute & all, but think about the way she talks & spells her words (I have no intentions with anyone who has a speech disability.). - Luxam
Temmie is cute and all but sorta overrated
Temmie is so great and adorable and he so adorable when he says words incorrectly love temmie
How everyone who loves temmie talks:
"HOI I'm *insert users name here)! AND I'm HERE 2 PLAY A GAM! "
its cringe. stop it. - WarioMan
She's one of the most underrated in the game, definitely my favorite along with Papyrus - Garythesnail
I personally love Undyne, but I think the fans don't really... (understand? )
She's a great character, UNDERrated in my opinion - SansTheComic
Lol, why is this post called "Most Overrated"? - CharaV 3 Comments
At this point, he probably just hates the game. - Chara
He is a jerk not overrated
Everyone puts him in comics where he's Sans and Papyrus's dad...I mean it's possible he is but we know literally almost nothing about him except that he was the first Royal Scientist - Garythesnail
He should be no.2, we don't even know a THING about the guy
How is this guy lower than Mettaton?

How is burger pants overrated? He's completely the opposite of that!
Woah, whenever people talk about UNDERTALE, I never hear him in the slightest. Might be just me, but seriously, he's unpopular - SansTheComic
Who the heck put burgerpants here?! - Napstablook
Not overrated but not underrated.
The people who love him are like,
"He likes cigars looks so kawaii kitty ~Nyah~ ;3 he is BOOTIFUL"
"Ugh ugly art ugly fanart ugly sprite Burgerpantsxanyone I feel bad for them."
That suicidal cat boi?
Me: hey (freinds name)
Me: random guy says, "hey nicepants"
Friend: nice cream guy says "thanks! "
Friend: that is the sole reason I ship nicepants - Darktail_of_FireClan
He's so underrated. He deserves at least as much love as sans. He so relatable! Even though he's such a side character. Just my opinion, by the way - SansTheComic
(ignore my username) but I think he's fairly underrated. He's like alphys. Adorable, relatable, and just a good character, but not many people really like him. - Napstablook
Not SUPER overrated, but yeah. - Luxam
He's very Underrated, in my opnion he's better than Sans, Papyrus EVEN FLOWEY - Garoto_OceanoV 3 Comments
I can get behind this. - Chara
Yes he is
I feel like I just got trolled. CUE THE DOGSONG! - AndreDisney
The players rarely even learn about him!
He's UNDERRATED not overrated
Super underrated, but with a sad backstory - SansTheComic
I honestly love the guy. We don't know if HE necessarily killed every human. UNDYNE could have. Asgore was super depressed that husband kids are dead and Toriel couldn't handle it. He VERY OBVIOUSLY loves her so that's ONE reason I don't like Soriel. Everyone in the fandom hates him for being depressed, yet the fandom LOVES AND WORSHIPS sans even though he's also depressed. This means the fandom are hypocrites. Sometimes I'm embarassed to even LIKE undertale because of the fandom. - Darktail_of_FireClanV 3 Comments
Not even canon wtfudge?! - Darktail_of_FireClan
Why is Betty here but not Jessica Grey! NO FAIR. by the way why is Betty is close to the end
Compared to So Sorry, she is kinda overrated. - AndreDisney
Once again, under rated. - Chara
SHE MADE ME LOSE MY FEAR OF SPIDERS!
She's adorable in some cases I would say more cute then Papyrus's hope (not possible) and temmie but spiders hope and my 4th favorite behind MettatonEx,Papyrus,AsgoreV 2 Comments
Error sans looks are a tiny bit creepy and dose "ERROR ATTACKS" and is made out of "ERRORS" and it's the exact same height and everything that sans has and know.
Ok this is UNDERTALE not whatever crappy spin off this error guy came from but he is far from underrated he is literally a spin off of one of THE MOST overrated characters from undertale of all time (that's right come at me I call sans a lazy trash bag)
Not even canon... - Chara
More overrated than mettaton EX and Sans put together, AND he's NOT EVEN FURKING CANON! That's right he's so overrated and annoying that I ALMOST CUSSED! - Darktail_of_FireClanV 1 Comment
