Top 10 Most Overrated Undertale Characters

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

1 Sans 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 more.

Canon Sans: Can be hit once and then dies.
Fanon Sans: Can be hit by Chara's PURE EVIL slashes a ton of times.
Canon Sans: Lost to Frisk.
Fanon Sans: Dunked Chara until they gave up and Frisk killed them.
Canon Sans: Had no motivation to kill Frisk until his universe was at stake.
Fanon Sans: Wanted to kill Chara the moment he realized their LOVE.
Canon Sans: Doesn't really have weapons like Asgore or Mettaton NEO.
Fanon Sans: Uses a bone as a sword.
Canon Sans: Uses Gaster Blasters without aiming for Frisk.
Fanon Sans: Rides his Gaster Blasters to kill Chara.

A Mii costume of him overshadowed everything else about the recent Smash Ultimate update, including Home Run Contest and Banjo-Kazooie. A RUDDY MII COSTUME OVERSHADOWED ACTUAL, MORE SUBSTANTIAL CONTENT! Ugh.

Dude, he's not even a good character. all he does is sleep, tell bad jokes, gets a blue eye and beats your anus

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.

2 Flowey Flowey Flowey is a flower in the RPG Undertale. He is the first character you meet, and also your best friend.

Flowey / Asriel is one of the most underrated characters actually - darthvadern

I don't think Flowey was overrated or underrated. - TheCrystalWolf

How is flowey overrated?

Flowey is my favorite character, but he is underrated... Papyrus should be at no.2 in my opinion

3 Alphys 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 more.

She's a fan-favorite, but she isn't overrated. - TheCrystalWolf

Who put Alphys here? She is underrated.

Why is Alphys here? She isn't.

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.

4 Chara 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. Her name can be changed by the player and will be assumed as the player character, until the Pacifist Route when Asriel asks for the more.

1. THEY*
2. Chara is somehow a mix of overrated and over-hated. I don't know how they do it. - TheCrystalWolf

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

I already wrote this

Why do people like her so much?

5 Toriel Toriel Toriel is a main character in Toby Fox's 2016 RPG, Undertale. She is an amazing blend of goat and mother.

Toriel best girl

BUT THEY DRAW HER LIKE one of your French girls

She's not THAT bad, unlike... (groans) SANS.

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.

6 Papyrus 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 more.

I made him overrated I love you papyrus

Papyrus the best chef in the kings brogade I see why he's on this list who can't love good ol' paps?

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.

7 Mettaton 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!"

Mettaton's EX form is overrated, at least.

He's beautiful

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.

Who needs arms when you've got legs like those. - Brobusky

8 Asriel Dreemurr Asriel Dreemurr Asriel Dreemurr is a character from the 2015 game "Undertale". He was created by Toby Fox. more.

He's loved by many fans, but honestly he's far from overrated. - TheCrystalWolf

People here don't even sound like they played the game. - YoureJustWrong

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.

Yeah because he's a nice kid, every source of information in the game basically shows you this. - YoureJustWrong

Asriel Dreemurr is a furry. People have no right no hate on So Sorry without hating on Asriel. That's the truth. - WarriorCatsHater

What are you talking about? So sorry has no relevance to the plot whatsoever, not to mention Toby Fox didn't even CREATE him. People have every right to hate on a character that Isn't relevant in any way whatsoever. - YoureJustWrong

9 Temmie 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 more.


Like Onionsan, it's the cutest thing other than pikachu

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

Ok I like temmie, but shes just another shopkeeper, nobody gives any attention to the snowdin bunny or the turtle in the waterfall, or the nice cream guy, I think temmie is cute too, but wouldn't it be nice to see snowdin bunny fanart for a change fandom? - Maya159610

10 Undyne Undyne Undyne is a main character in Toby Fox's 2016 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, more.

Can I just point out that it says under temmies description the 2015 game undertale by Toby fox, then undyne is a main character in Toby fox''s 2016 rpg. Wut

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


The Contenders

11 Monster Kid Monster Kid

At this point, he probably just hates the game. - Chara

Monster kid is just so funny. one of the best chareters ever. why is she not in the top 10 at leats?

Monster kid is one of the only children in the game with a clear gender. Get it right. - TheCrystalWolf

12 Omega Flowey

He is a jerk not overrated

13 Gaster 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 . more.

If you knew allot about this character you would know not to put him on this list he is kind of like an endless mystery

Should be in second place under Sans, honestly. - TheCrystalWolf

Who is this guy?

Boi he scary, but cool

14 Burgerpants 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.

Lol while you guys are talking
Burgerpants is just watching our every move

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

15 Napstablook 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.

Literally he needs love like sans is way to over rated just because his puns and how strong he is! (And meganolvia) I really thinks he needs more attention.

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

16 Annoying Dog

*The dog absorbed the comment - TheCrystalWolf

*annoying dog stole the artifact*

NUMBER ONE - Maya159610

I can get behind this. - Chara

17 Asgore 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 more.

He's UNDERRATED not overrated

The players rarely even learn about him!

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_FireClan

18 Betty

Not even canon. - TheCrystalWolf

You see, apparently Pink is the soul color of fear. Which if anything wouldn't be fear. And besides. As we know, When Frisk goes to a save point she will be filled with "Determination" and Frisk's soul just so happens to be the soul of Determination. So that means when the other 6 humans fell down, if the Green Soul would save, She/He will be filled with "Kindness" and Dark Blue with "Integrity" and so forth. But if we follow this case with Betty, it means when she goes to a save point, she will be filled with "Fear." So she's scared of seeing a Mouse go get some Spaghetti? Anyways, you see, colors have meanings. Toby Fox used these for representations of the soul colors. E.g Red = Determination. And Pink isn't fear. It's passion. - WarriorCatsHater

Shes way more overrated than sans no joke

She is a fandom character - buttersock

19 Error Sans


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)

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.

Not even canon... - Chara

20 Frisk Frisk

I don't understand why everyone thinks that Frisk is an innocent cinnamon roll who's been possessed by evil Chara.
Chara's not the one who decided to go Genocide.
It was you, the player.
Even when you no longer had the option to SPARE the monsters, you could still close the game, RESET, and go pacifist.
Sorry, that was kinda irrelevant. - TheCrystalWolf

Why does everyone act like she has to be the main character in everything... that didn't make any sense... I think she should be somewhere though

Her/he's soul is the soul of determination so you can reset or else the game would be pretty hard like super hard - Diego_

Frisk is not more innocent than paps, fandom.

Fandom: aww yeah she is!

Hey you, Jim right there! What gender is frisk?

Jimmy: der a girl

So your saying when you played undertale you played as a girl?

Jimmy: oh...

First of all FRISK IS NOT FEMALE OR MALE. Well they are actually whoever you want them to be but the fandom says that frisk being female is a fact. Second of all THEY ARE SOOO INNOCENT IN FANONGENO. Chara deserves less hate. Frisk is apparently the most innocent ever according to the fans and doesn't deserve to be on any underrated list. - Darktail_of_FireClan

I agree. Everyone thinks Frisk is a sweet, innocent cute little roll of kindness that was controlled by cruel, evil, heartless, manipulative chara. STOP. And they're also genderless, so stop that fanart when Frisk is a super hot sexy girl. And Chara didn't control Frisk, you were the one that randomly decided to do a genocide route.

That's only in genocide, in Pacifist they are sweet and innocent. - YoureJustWrong

21 Muffet 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.

Compared to So Sorry, she is kinda overrated. - AndreDisney

Once again, under rated. - Chara



22 W.D. Gaster

Actually it confirms, that gaster was not Sans and Papyrus's dad but only their creator. Sans and Papyrus were born in tubes in the true lab (aka W.D Gasters old lab) Gaster had finally fount a way to create monsters who were extincted from the war like skeletons since he was the only one left of his kind in the underground the royal scientists recommended they would experiment on soul fragments to try to create an actual monster soul. Gaster called his creations the N-5 They had made 5 souls 3 of them were damaged and would dust soon leaving papyrus sans as the 2 left with the souls. After all this is when Gaster fell into his creation) The Core. Loong story short sans and papyrus managed to escape. If you did not know also their is a secret lab hidden behind sans and papyruses house. If you need any information just ask.

He may only be in certain fun numbers but his a fun character

This a mysterie character in undertale you can only find I'm if you hack into the game and this is the dad of sans and papyrus

1 W.D.gaster is NOT confirmed to be Sans and papyrus's Dad in the fandom maybe - Diego_

23 Grillby

Pun intended. - 404_name_missing

Eh. I can see where you're coming from. - AndreDisney

WHY DO people KEEP ON MAKING COMICS FOR HIM? well, I guess he is hot owo

24 Saness

Sans and Ness? Wtfudge? - Darktail_of_FireClan

From Underpants, an AU.
It's hilarious, check it out

25 Nice Cream Guy

Very cool

He is way too underrated like hell, but I in my opinion like him He's fluffy and cute but he'll everybody hates him he should be the true underrated character

Everyone hates him? No, everybody ships him with Burgerpants for no reason.

26 Gaster Sans

Blaster gaster

27 So Sorry

Aside from Jerry, So Sorry is probably the most hated character in the game. And I don't know why.
"He's a furry! "
Pretty much everyone in the game is a furry.
"So Sorry's creator forced Toby to put him in the game! "
No. Just, no. So Sorry's creator donated a thousand dollars to a game we all know and love. I guarantee that without that thousand dollar donation, Undertale would be a very different game.
"He's a self insert character! "
So are Temmie and the Annoying Dog, but I don't see you hating on either of them.
"He's fetish art! "
There's no reason to hate on a character for their backstory when it isn't even in the game. - TheCrystalWolf

I think he's underrated. Just because his attacks are hard doesn't make him overrated. - AndreDisney

He is a hidden boss (mini boss) in Undertale's Hotland, he attacks not on purpose but on accident, example: he tries to look in his bag (I think) but his tail keeps moving that is becomes an attack.

28 Blueberry Sans

This was supposed to be real undertale not some stupid sans AU

29 Flowerfell Frisk

Too overrated especially to "Frans" shippers!

Made for the sole reason of "Frans" - Darktail_of_FireClan

30 Inktale Sans

Inktale was an AU that was a character-centered AU in disguise. Why having EVERY character, Sans is capable of making AUs.

31 Mad Dummy

I dunno why, but I really liked this character and his theme was quite catchy mind you.

32 Mad Mew Mew
33 Froggit

I sadly agree.

I don't hate Froggit, but people overrate Froggit too much. It's a random attack character. I think this is one of the ONLY random attack character that gets so much attention. Just.. please tell me is it about Froggit people like?

34 River Person

Technically, this counts as they are not confirmed to be Gaster. But that's the point! Just because of "Beware of the man who speaks in hands.", now everyone think that they're Gaster. They would be more likely to be warning you about Gaster, not warning you about how they're Gaster.

River person isn't Gaster. In face, that blob in waterfall might not be Gaster! GASTER IS A FANON CHARACTER NOW! River person Should not be affected by the sucky fanon Gaster stuff. - Darktail_of_FireClan

35 Mettaton NEO Mettaton NEO

I mean, in the game, he is definitely underrated, having a really unchallenging fight. But you have to admit, for a character who got his own theme but not even a proper boss fight, a ton of people have been drawing fanart for him, making battles and doing remixes. Heck, one of these remixes was used in Undertale Red for the Genocide Route. - AndreDisney

36 Underfell Sans

Lol what a loser - WarriorCatsHater

37 Underswap Papyrus
