Top 10 Saddest Undertale Deaths

I was surprised to see this wasn't a list already, so I figured I'd take action.

The Top Ten

1 Undyne (Neutral Route)

I'm a huge fan of Undyne and she's definitely my favorite character along with Papyrus. If you decide to kill this hero, she stays determined to live on by thinking of all the people she loves. Her mentor and father figure Asgore, her love interest Alphys, her best friend Papyrus...they're the reason she's fighting, and she refuses to let herself die. As she slowly fades away, she shouts that she can't die because she must protect everyone. Along with the depressing music track that plays with it, it makes it an incredibly sad experience. - Garythesnail

2 Papyrus (Genocide Route)

If there's anybody nice enough to befriend a genocidal maniac and get them on the right path, it's Papyrus. He offers nothing but friendship and guidance to the protagonist and even will refrain from fighting him. You can spare him immediately, but killing him will result in him letting you know he still sees a shred of a good person within you. Even if you halt the route later, killing Papyrus will cause both Undyne and Sans to despise you(more than usual in Undyne's case) - Garythesnail

3 Asriel Dreemurr (True Pacifist)

The True Pacifist route is by far the most enjoyable way to play Undertale. You free all the monsters and give them their happy ending-that is, except for Asriel, who's doomed to be trapped in the body of a flower for what seems to be forever. As much as fans hope, there doesn't seem to be a lot of hope for poor Asriel. - Garythesnail

4 Alphys (Certain Neutral Routes)
5 Toriel (All Routes)

This one is absolutely the saddest death to me

That look on her face.
This is why you only play the True Pacifist Route. - Martin_Canine

" hate me that much? " - Garythesnail

I didn't feel anything at all in the genocide route.
But... somehow I feel like I need to vote for this one because you are killing your own mother. Toriel only wanted the best for you, and you struck her down.
I feel like whenever someone is playing Undertale for the first time, this fight really decides what path you take.
I know because I nearly killed her in my first run.

6 Sans (Genocide Route)

Sans is pretty overrated, but his death was still pretty sad. " you want anything? " - Garythesnail

7 Asgore (Neutral Routes)

By killing Flowey, then going back to Asgore to fight again, you can as usual spare him or kill him. Sparing him is the right thing to do(even though Flowey kills him anyway), but if you spare him after following the pattern I mentioned, he will give you his own soul, thus ending his life. In any route except True Pacifist, Asgore is tragically killed and thus causes devastation in the underground. - Garythesnail

8 Undyne (Genocide Route)

"This world will live on..."

9 Flowey (Genocide Route)

Maybe the genocidal weed deserves to be killed, but at the end of Genocide he realizes he's Asriel and begs you not to kill him. Spoiler alert: you have no choice, and must kill him. In what may be the most brutal hits in the game. - Garythesnail

10 The Dogs (Any Route You Kill Them In) V 1 Comment

The Contenders

11 Muffet's Death (Neutral/Genocide Route)

Not very sad, but if you kill Muffet then a spider will crawl onto the spot where she died and leave a rose. It's kind of sad, really.
