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.
He is NOT the main character focus in Snowdin town. Get over yourselves fanbpys and girls!V 102 Comments
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
Who put Alphys here? She is underrated.
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.
Alphys deserves more fame then Sans.
What? Alphys is completely underrated.V 15 Comments
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.
Asriel: (proceeds to crawl up her ear canal and make out with her brain) - xandermartin98V 7 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
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.
Her fans are the most annoying thing on earth next to the Sans fan girls. They basically are trying to force people to like her and trying to shove their ‘Chara is good theory’ down people’s throats. I’m not saying Chara is evil(she is only evil in genocide because you killed everyone). I’m just saying that no matter how you look at it, in her backstory, there is no evidence whatsoever of them having good or bad intentions of killing the humans and that if you have a theory of her being good, it’s still a theory and might not be cannon and that you should stop telling people that it is cannon. Those fans need to go hang themselves if they don’t respect opinions. Moral: don’t force people to like your favourite character and respect their opinions. Well, bye.V 15 Comments
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
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.
Leg so hot hot leg so hot you could fry an eggV 10 Comments
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
How is he this low on the list? He should at least be in the top three.
I love him and all, but we see him for like... five minutes as his true self, when he spent the rest of the game trying to kill us. And yet people are willing to sacrifice Frisk’s SOUL to save him.
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
Like Onionsan, it's the cutest thing other than pikachuV 11 Comments
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
Undyne is the hardest boss outside of genocide but is also overratedV 4 Comments
At this point, he probably just hates the game. - Chara
He is a jerk not overrated
He should be no.2, we don't even know a THING about the guy
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
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
Okay why tf do people ship him with the Nice Cream guy?
He never gets recognized outside the ship.
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
THIS DOGGO SHOULD BE IN THE 10'S, DOGGO IS CUTE.
Yes he isV 1 Comment
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_FireClanV 3 Comments
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
She is a fandom character - buttersock
Not even canon wtfudge?! - Darktail_of_FireClan
Who the heck put this on here?
Even if she was canon I would have her and 1 or 2 - Sherman
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
THIS IS JUST A CRAP CLONE OF SANS.V 2 Comments
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
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_
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.
Her fanon interpretation is just MARY SUE. STOP. Chara isn't evil and Frisk isn't a pure, innocent cinnabun.
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?
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
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
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_
Sans and Ness? Wtfudge? - Darktail_of_FireClan
From Underpants, an AU.
It's hilarious, check it out
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.
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.
This was supposed to be real undertale not some stupid sans AU
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?
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
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
Lol what a loser - WarriorCatsHater
Too overrated especially to "Frans" shippers!
Made for the sole reason of "Frans" - Darktail_of_FireClan
