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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

I do like Alphys but she is not more overrated then the other antagonists

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

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.

5 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 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

6 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!"

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

Legs are totes amazing

7 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. His 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.

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 -.-

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

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.

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.

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

She usually uses bad grammar like, tem kil u

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.

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 overrated

The Contenders

11 Monster Kid Monster Kid

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

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.

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?

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.

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

Well he is kind of nuts

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.

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_Oceano

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

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

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

19 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


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,Asgore

20 Error Sans

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_FireClan
