Top Ten Undertale Characters You Would Feel Guilty Killing

Undertale is an amazing game, and one of its amazing qualities is its cast of characters. You also have the option to spare them all somehow. These are the ones I'd have trouble NOT sparing. I'm not counting Napstablook because you can't actually kill him.

The Top Ten

1 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.

He still believes in you, even when you mercilessly decapitate him. Think about this, would you like to be mercilessly decapitated? No? That's what I thought. This is why I can never to genocide. I didn't spare him in pacifist, and I saw what happened. I cried for an hour. He is the key of the game. You decapitate him, sans is coming for you.

Definitely papyrus

I don't know if it's been stated before, but YOU CAN'T KILL PAPYRUS ON ACSIDENT. ALWAYS ON PURPOSE. I abandoned my Genocide run because I had a ton of guilt killing Goat mom, and didn't want to feel it 10 times worse when killing this little cinnamon roll.

Ok I have seen a sans fight animation and that made my eyes water. but papyrus ALWAYS makes me feel horrible. but I have a lot of LV now so I couldn't care less

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

THIS is the hardest thing in the genocide run! I'm sorry goat mom!

The piece of music in the background of the fight is heartache. A very underrated piece I,love the piece though because it sounds like studio ghibli

Toriel is there with you right from the beginning, and saying goodbye to her is one of the most heart-wrenching moments in the game. Heck, her battle theme is called "Heartache"! I've seen Let's Play gamers kill her and instantly regret it. I teared up the first time I had the goodbye with her AND when I got to her fight on Genocide. - Garythesnail

When you kill toriel she still loves you when I killed her I cried.She wants you to be good. She uses kind words Ben when you tried to leave fighter her and she still loves you. *silence*...That's Just sad!

3 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 hate people KILLING SANS IN UT, by the way geonside run is the worst unless,YOU ARE A PSYCHOPATH LIKE CHARA

Me:*trying to beat sans*nnaagh!
Me:* finnaly beating sans*yas!
*after dialogue*Me:...yap this is the saddest moment in my history of gaming *Crys in pillow*

I feel ya.

After killing him, he says the saddest dialogue in every timeline: "Papyrus, what are you doing here? " Or something like that. Point is, I literally cried after the whole genocide run once I killed sans. That changed my life to see his normally happy personality break, showing his depressed, angry side. I no longer am the person I was after that fight, and I never want to be. It was truly sad.

4 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.

I just saw her Neutral fight. Her death was heartbreaking to watch as she screams that she won't die. It's a lot worse than Genocide.

Her death in all 3 modes is gut-wrenching. In Pacifist, you constantly take away her regenerating health, and in Genocide, you've just killed the only person strong enough to stand a chance against you at that point. Think about that, k? - Garythesnail

5 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 Ex is the second form of Mettaton When you kill the other form of Mettaton She is a dancer.

So what do you love the most about Mettaton? For me, I'd have to ask: is "everything" an option? This guy's hilarious! AND he wants to save humanity from Asgore! Why would you WANT to kill him?
(to be honest though, his Genocide boss is pitiful) - Garythesnail

6 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.

I'm not even going to explain this one. WHO DOESN'T LIKE TEMMIE! - Garythesnail

TEMMIE! in the genocide route this is one of the characters I absolutely can not kill

I will kill her any day,she is my least favorite character in the game - Nateawesomeness

Hoi I'm temmie! and dis my frien- temmie~! - Antifi

7 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.

But still, HE IS A DEMON. And he actually is. Look at him when you start the fight. HE DESTROYS THE MERCY BUTTON WITH THE DEVILS WEAPON OF CHOICE. LIKE, PEOPLE! But then again, his death scene is extremely sad. He begs you to take his soul. So sad.

He's not exactly the most liked character in the fanbase, but Asgore had a kind personality, and was only doing what he thought he had to do for his kingdom. - Garythesnail

A true hero. - Keubab

8 The Greater Dog

It wouldn't seem like much at first, but you basically kill a puppy by doing this. - Garythesnail

I can never do genocide because of this. WHY THE DOGS TOBY WHY - Brobusky

9 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.

Mostly on here for how sad her death scene is. - Garythesnail

It almost made me cry when I killed her and the spider came and gave her a flower! ;_; - HaydenGuyPotato

The part that really got me was when the spider put a flower at the spot where shs was killed. Very sad.

10 Lesser Dog Lesser Dog Lesser Dog is a character from Undertale. He is part of the Snowdin Canine Unit, and is famous for his long neck.

He's just a cute little puppy wearing armour!

The Contenders

Poor girl kills herself.

If you kill everyone but Mettaton, she allegedly commits suicide. Then Undyne hates your guys and Papyrus doesn't know what on earth is going on.

Have fun... - Garythesnail

16 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.
