Top Ten Songs from the Undertale Soundtrack

Undertale is an indie game that almost immediately exploded in popularity, no doubt in part to its stellar soundtrack. This list is focusing on the absolute best of the bunch.
The Top Ten
1 Hopes and Dreams Hopes and Dreams Cover Art

It fills you with bravery and hope. It sounds like everithing is possible. It sounds like the bad side (rock part) and the good side (calming part) fighting each other.

All of the music in Asriel's battle is incredible. I love Asriel, but I have to say that Hopes and Dreams is the best in my opinion. You feel that strong jolt of emotion and it reminds you that THIS is the TRUE final battle. It makes you want to jam out and tear up at the same time, and combined with the bittersweet and emotional storyline of the True Pacifist Route, it all fits in perfectly!

I've been writing a story-and this song inspired me to create a character that was based off of hopes and dreams.Someone truly good-but threatening. I've come up with ideas for all kinds of twists thanks to this song. It makes me happy and I sing it all the time- especially since I'm going through a hard time. Music has helped so much- even this song. Some other songs I'd recommend if you like this one are C-R-O-W-N-E-D, An Unwavering Heart, Zinnia Battle, and ORAS Ending.

This song is the best thing I've ever flipping heard from a video game. Chuck-full of feels, beautiful moments, and laughs all stuffed into one nostalgic experience, with one epic song behind it. The first time I heard this song while playing the game... I cried. And I'm not afraid to admit it Asgore, Toriel, Undyne, Alphys, Sans, Papyrus... and then... Asriel.

2 Megalovania Megalovania Cover Art

Fighting Sans and hearing Megalovania 100 times got boring. I never thought this song would get boring, but whenever I hear it, I get frustrated. I've heard this song a thousand times from trying to beat him. But then I realize who Sans REALLY is. He's not just some laid back skeleton who tells puns and does nothing with his life. He's a caring brother, he can acknowledge timelines, he knows what the player is doing. Undertale NEVER forgets. No matter how many times you reset, you are putting the remembers, Sans, Flowey, and Gaster through hell. "don't tell the other sans-es ok? " "look, I gave up trying to go back a long time ago." Not back to the surface, but back to his timeline! Like that bunny person at the shop in Snowdin: "They just showed up one day and asserted themselves." Sans wants to go back to his timeline, when Gaster didn't fall into the Core and end up in the void.

"papyrus... do you want anything..? "

It's a good music but, unlike ,Hopes and Dreams" it gets boring when you listen to it too much. But like ,Hopes and Dreams", it fills you with hope.

Though I have yet to play Undertale (I plan to change that), I've gone out of my way to listen to the OST and this is the best one I've heard. With the newest update in a game called My Singing Monsters, it brought a place where you can make your own songs, and this song has been remade so many times, and most of them are very well-made. This is the best song in the entire game, even if you have to go on the Genocide Run and fight one of the best characters.

Even though it might get slightly annoying after your sibling makes you listen to it so much, I can really understand why this is number one on this list. Yes, you might have to kill hundreds of monsters just to hear this one song, but it's very catchy.

3 Death by Glamour Death by Glamour Cover Art

Death by glamour is amazing! It gives off Mettaton's entire vibe. It's fabulous, amazing, beautiful, and it fills me with determination!

Epic song. I just vibe to the beat of this. Mettaton is my third favorite character in the game.You could already tell which is my first and second favorites.

This is my absolute favorite... it is just so catchy, with a nice beat and rhythm. It also suits Mettaton perfectly. GO TOBY FOX!

Very catchy, and has a lot of motifs that fit Mettaton completely. Toby made 10 songs into a hundred, and we love them all.

4 Undertale Undertale Cover Art

This is my absolute favorite song in the game. Its use of actual instruments is implemented so well and it makes you so sad as you hear Asriel's story. I love how the underlying tone remains at the same 8 notes (You know the ones) and then at the very end, it goes up an octave and takes the stage.

Truly the greatest song in the entire game. I am not one to cry in games, but this song alone without the context of the game for some reason has me feeling a lot of emotions. I am sad about the story of the monsters, I am hopeful for the future, and I know the story is soon to end. This is one last walk down memory lane before you reach what you would think is the Finale. Beautiful song, I love it.

What's the best way to really punch a point across? I'll tell you. An acoustic guitar.

New Home is the final section of UNDERTALE, and it is also the shortest. There are no fights. Just story. During your journey throughout New Home, the monsters tell their side of their story, and express their happiness at finally going to be free. That's why Undertale (the song) is happy, not melancholic. It invokes empathy, which is the main point of a Pacifist run. To share and understand the emotions of others. The segment and the music flip everything completely on its head. The first REAL recording of an instrument, the fact that it's just Toriel's house again, the story. All of this combined with the music just piles up the impact more and more. Fabulous song, both uplifting and melancholic and determined.

Its such a heart warming song, just like the game itself. So of course it deserves the same title as the game. What I don't understand is why on Earth Megalovania is more popular. It might just be the fact that Sans is the most over rated character in Undertale so that would mean the his song would be over rated to. If you disagree with me I'm sorry, but please at least listen to this song. And I mean listen to it, actually focus on the song and reflect on the game. Now I'm not saying I dislike Sans or Megalovania, I just think they are to over rated to be the top.

5 Spider Dance Spider Dance Cover Art

Spider dance is another very catchy song. Not only spider dance is catchy and matches both Muffet's personality and the fight, but it also makes the fight way better.

Spider Dance is awesome, Sans boss fight is my fave, but you can't deny the awesomeness of spider dance. I've never personally played UnderTale, but I watched full pacifist, genocide, a bunch of aus, and listened to all of the soundtracks at least 3 times, so I know UnderTale is awesome and so are the soundtracks.

It's the only song that makes me scream 'yes' when it comes on. Megalovania and Asgore are two other good ones but Muffet was one of my favorite characters.

So fast paced and fantastic. Really does match the Muffet battle, though it is a shame this is only number six as of 12/31/16. LOVE THIS SONG

6 Battle Against a True Hero Battle Against a True Hero Cover Art

People don't give BAATH the credit it deserves. Megalovania and Hopes and Dreams are always on top, with the others being %10 or lower. BAATH is a masterpiece that deserves better. It also has one of the hardest boss fights in the game, and at the same time one of the best. Hate me all you want, it's better than Megalovania and Hopes and Dreams combinded. Mainly because they would sound terrible when put together, but you get the point. So uh, yeah. I like BAATH better than almost every one of the tracks. Only his theme and bring it in, guys! have a chance of rivaling this epic theme. However, in order to hear this epic theme, you'll have to do a genocide run. Too bad we have to be a mass murderer just to hear this song.

I like how they give Undyne the Undying a different theme than her original. I don't blame you if you have to kill 20 monsters just to hear this masterpiece.

This music captures the essence of Undyne. At this moment, the character has truly transformed into a villain, and Undyne is truly the hero stepping up to save the day through her DETERMINATION. And to be honest, in most timelines, she has beaten me and has prevailed as a hero.

No words can describe how much I LOVE this song! (You get it? LOVE?) But seriously, I really do love this song! This is my personal favorite song on the soundtrack! I don't even care if I have to create an underground massacre (Or maybe even the 2nd war of humans and monsters, but this time, it's right there in the underground) to hear this theme! I just love listening to it so much! (FYI How can a notebook cut through Undyne's armor, just to mention it's MADE OF PURE METAL! Just asking.)

7 Asgore Asgore Cover Art

I personally love this song because it just fills you up with determination as you fight Asgore, who is actually a really hard boss. (I learned that by dying 5 or 6 times while fighting him, when I usually would die 2 or 3 times while fighting other bosses.) Also, the attacks are very hard. It's not just that it actually fills you with determination, but it also is a very catchy theme. But for those folks who are playing Undertale and are stuck on the Asgore battle, I'll tell you some secrets:

First, Use the heart locket and the worn dagger. You'll find these 2 items in the copy of Toriel's house in new home in the first room to the right of the entrance. (Lots of info, I know.) These have the best defense and attack. Next, stock up on food. You'll need it a lot when you're fighting him. Once you are prepared to fight him, go out and do so. Start by talking to him until he loses 10 defense, 10 attack. This will help a lot in both fighting Asgore and counting how many times ...more

people do not appreciate enough of how much detail Toby added into this song, it should be top 5 immediatly, instead of death by glamour, the tunes are able fill someone with determination of finally reaching the barrier and fighting the 'final' boss, the music completely confused me when I first did a pacifist run and I completely thought that asgore will be the final boss.

Personally, I think that Megalovania is indeed the most famous, but nothing stops ASGORE from dominating the field in sense of the best song. The dynamics, the structure, the notes... all of it is heartbreaking and is possibly the best song in the game. Toby Fox even put in a relation to heartache, Toriel's theme... wow. Just... this is probably the most underrated song in the game, ranking 5 when it should be numero uno.

This song is underrated. Many people don't listen to the small leitmotifs that Toby puts in the song, telling the story of Asgore. Did anyone notice how Heartache was in ASGORE, but not the other way round? This shows how Toriel is still a part of Asgore's life, but Toriel has completely moved on from Asgore. This is such an amazing piece of music and should be at least in the top 5.

8 Bonetrousle Bonetrousle Cover Art

It is my favorite song. I feel that people's minds usually go to the bigger songs of the game, but it's always fun to listen to the classics.

I've heard less than a quarter of the undertale OST. I still love Spider Dance and Megalovania, but this one feels more underrated. Oh yeah, and Power of Neo

Bonetrousle is so cool, and it has the entire Papyrus vibe! It's amazing, and it makes one feel brave, and it can honestly put a smile on my face. I love it so much! It's a real bone tickler (hehe)

My ultimate favorite songs are Spider Dance and Megalovania, but HECK this song always puts a huge smile on my face and want to dans like a idiot. This should be highter.

9 Waterfall Waterfall Cover Art

Along with the song, "Undertale" there's just something different. It's mysterious. Like the games hiding something. I love it.

Truth is, I do Genocide runs over and over and over again. Because there's no climax, they just die. Except for Sans, and the first time you kill Toriel, depending. And of course Undyne.

I can't bring myself to play Pacifist. I'm scared that I might of ruined it. Sans remembers it. Flowey remembers. What if it messes up? I've received lots of hate for this.

Waterfall is basically making me want to play it. The secrets.

Honestly, I'm getting bored of trying the game to get FUN numbers, and once I've uh... Seen the gray Gaster followers. And, even Gaster... But I feel there's more to learn in the Pacifist run.

Waterfall... The secrets are held there,

It's the best music to listen when you are stressed. It relaxes you a lot. I recomend it for the ones with stressful problems like me.

Ahh this is one of the best peices of the undertale soundtrack (my opinion) through out the song there is a build up to a fantastic climax. A Very relaxing and calming song.

This song is incredibly beautiful and surreal. I can feel the atmosphere just by the music, it's outstanding.

10 Spear of Justice Spear of Justice Cover Art

To be honest, my favorite thing about Undertale is the absolutely perfect music, and "Spear of Justice" Is one of those pieces of perfect music. You have to admit. It's a very catchy song and after playing Undertale, I started to wonder how Toby Fox made these amazing pieces of music. (Also, if you listen closely to "Ruins", you can actually hear part of "Spear of Justice" but in slow motion in one part."

The theme of Undyne really brings the whole character into the song itself - how Undyne is the real Hero of the underworld and how she is literally LOADED with determination. Shouldn't be this low - Top 10 at least!

My very fave UT song! MUCH better than this continuous rumble sound that an elevator makes!

I love this song so much! And it's hidden in several other songs in the soundtrack.

The Contenders
11 His Theme His Theme Cover Art

This song just makes me cry every time as you get to reach out to Asriel and finally show him the love and compassion that he can finally show back again.

My favorite song in undertale BY FAR. It's just.. I can't even explain it. It's so magical yet it fills you with sadness. Over the summer, I listened to this song in repeat for hours and hours on end.

Personally, this is my favorite. It's so hopeful, yet kind of sad at the same time. After a long fight, after saving your friends from their own fears, you finally get to save Asriel. This moment is so heartfelt, and songs in the Undertale soundtrack lead up to this by containing this leitmotif. And it leads up to the moment where (spoilers) in the True Pacifist route you go back and talk to Asriel, and he reveals things about Chara and how he wants to be remembered and it's sad.

I love this song so much, in my opinion it deserves to be first. shame its overshadowed by insanely popular songs like Megalovania. Hopefully someday it might be considered the best song in Undertale.

12 Another Medium Another Medium Cover Art

Those first six seconds when it goes from piano to synth are honestly enough on it's own, to make this my favorite, and the whole song gives such an energetic, yet chill feeling. Absolutely beautiful and super underrated.

It has great energy paired up with its wistful beauty. It says "don't give up" perfectly without actual words. Definitely one of the best songs in the game.

AaaAHHH I love this song so much. Whenever I'm doing the genocide run, I push myself to get past undyne the undying because I love hearing this ost slowed down

Perfectly captures the feeling of being alone, but not lonely. Very underrated.

13 Core Core Cover Art

Core is so intense, but the reason I like it is that it is not a boss fight, but the song shows the intensity and how many monsters you need to fight.

So full of energy. Perfect for, well, a power plant.

It's just getting better every time I hear it.

So much energy, I listen to this WAY too much.

14 Your Best Nightmare Your Best Nightmare Cover Art

So chaotic and spooky, both adjectives that describe photoshop flowey perfectly. That's what I love about this game's soundtrack: each and every song fits perfectly.

I did not like this much as a song but the ending is AMAZING! Also the song in the first place suits the fight better than any other songs and their fights because... your fighting a savage crazy photoshop. It works.

Your best nightmare is...enh..nah...BUT FINALE. The moment you play it, its ok, but then the build up comes, with memory in the background (an homage to the flowey=asriel element) and then...the beat drop. 6 notes play, and the 6th is repeated three more times. it's very quiet and the only thing playing at that moment, and then It goes insane. ly good.

Your best Nightmare has a very eerie vibe, which goes well with the shock of Omega flowey. However, I think Finale is the most underrated song, and I personally love it. Not as good as some, but still great

15 Save the World Save the World Cover Art

I'm not 100% sure why this is my favorite song, but I just love it to death.
I originally discovered this from an Undertale medley when I heard the soft piano part, and I went on a search to find it. I think it took about 2 or so days to find the original song, but I was blown away by how amazing it was.

I'd lump this in with hopes and dreams, but if I have to choose, I prefer this one. Also learning it on guitar was fun.

Got no clue why, but I LOVE Save The World. If I could listen to 1 song for the rest of my life, it would be this.

Save the world, one of the best. It's amazing, and it is great for this battle! I will always love it with my soul

16 Metal Crusher Metal Crusher Cover Art

I absolutely adore this song, really catchy and screams Mettaton "playing the role" of the evil, yet fabulous, villain!

I don't know why but I LOVE this song so much! It might be that I'm obsessed with Mettaton but the beginning is sick!

An absolute bop! Mettaton's quiz show is honestly one of my favorite parts of this game.

How is this not in the top 10 or even the top 20?!?!? It is just too good to be ranked number 24!

17 It's Raining Somewhere Else It's Raining Somewhere Else Cover Art

Man... emotions... they really hit hard at this point of the game. This music is perfect for the moment of this game. It's in a way, melancholy. At the same time it is also a bit uplifting. I love this song so much!

The emotion and at the same time the mystery behind this soundtrack really makes me root for it. One, there's Sans his secret workshop in which this soundtrack plays, and thus the entire soundtrack could even hint towards something really deep within the game! To me one of the most meaningful, deep, mysterious and chilling songs in the game.

Listen. This is one of the best songs in the game (except the intro). Believe me - it brings put all the raw pain and suffering sans has endured and it is the perfect track to reveal sans' relationship with toriel.

Ah, pain.

For real though. When you really learn who this punny guy is behind the jacket, this song becomes way worse (by that I mean emotional) to listen to. He tries to stay calm but he just... I have to stop ;-;

18 Ruins Ruins Cover Art

What can I say? This is one of the first pieces you'll hear in the game, and it sure gives a good impression. It's so catchy, and just... superb.

It is as good as megalovania and should have the respect as well! You people who don't love it should!

A nice and calming song. I've listened this song a lot, because I like it so much.

So mysterious. I like it.

19 Dummy! Dummy! Cover Art

I have NO idea why, but this song is one of my favs. It feels right, and the fact that it's against a wait-out boss means that I can listen to it and hear the whole thing by the time I finish the fight.

Best song in the game by far. Wacky, spunky, fits the character perfectly. Even repeats some notes 3 times, like Mad Dummy repeats words. I could listen to it all day.

Dummy! Is a great song, it's a mix of spider dance and ghost fight, and it in a way reflects on his character.

Better than Ghost Fight and Spider Dance. It gets me dancing every time.

20 Heartache Heartache Cover Art

This is my personal favorite song in the entire game. There are no words to describe just how perfectly this song was executed in Toriel's fight scene. Beautiful song, 100 out of 10 ^w^

Because toriel was the first boss doesn't mean you should forget about this song, it's theme is happy yet it gives of a kind of sadness knowing you will leave toriel soon

Honestly, I love this song not because its very cool but because of the emotion that is in the battle and I makes me feel so sad, and it should be a lot higher than this.

This is the most emotional and catchy tune of any soundtrack ever... except maybe sans or song that might play when you fight sans

21 Finale Finale Cover Art

This is pretty much the best "OH HELL YEAH" moment in the whole game. This fight is really chaotic, especially right after the pretty between-the-lines asgore fight. Your Best Nightmare makes it feel even more crazy, and also, this fight feels like it goes on FOREVER. It's a good 10 minutes along with the asgore fight.

So after a long, chaotic battle which feels like it's going to go on forever, this happens. Suddenly, you have a chance. It makes the Determination everyone's been talking about feel like it's really there, like some invisible force.

It goes without saying that this is my favorite song in the whole soundtrack. Except maybe ASGORE.

The first time I played Undertale, fighting Omega Flowey was one of the hardest boss battles I ever did. But as I neared the end, about to give up, I heard this theme, and it was like someone telling me to not give up! Thanks to this theme (And my sister encouraging me), I stayed determined and continued on to spare Flowey in the end, making my way to fight the absolute god of hyper death. (If you don't know the reference "God of hyper death", It's asriel Dreemurr.)

THIS IS AWESOME! That moment when you're fighting omega Flowey, he's always been wanting to kill you and insulting you, and now you get the chance to get revenge! This is the perfect song for any revenge song.-Luke_dapip

This is one of the greatest songs in Undertale. It is mentioned before as Your Best Nightmare/Finale, but I thought it deserved its own singular place on this list.

22 Bergentrückung Bergentrückung Cover Art

An epic entrance to an epic fight.

The opening to my favorite song.

23 Temmie Village Temmie Village Cover Art

A lot of people think this song is stupid and bad but if you think about it the song is supposed to represent the personality of the tummies.

Oh come on. Though it can be considered stupid and annoying by some people, it's a big favorite for me!

All you need to know is that whenever I encounter a Temmie I always scream TeMmIe!

This song is so funny. When I hear it. It's like a rainbow came.

24 Sans. Sans. Cover Art

A funny and lazy song. Just like sans. I like that the song is also used when you enter grillby's.

In my opinion, Sans. should be higher on this list. It perfectly fits the character of someone HUMERUS like Sans.

Great! Why is it so far down?!?!?!

Sans the comedian.

25 Battle of a True Hero

Dude it's "Battle AGAINST a true hero," and this song is already on this list.
