Top Ten Best Undertale Characters
I mean, what else do I have to say about this guy? Sans is probably one of the most relatible characters in the game. He is just a guy who is working in a hot dog stand and teleports around when he likes to, but he is the only "normal" person, who is stoping you from getting to the throne room and destroying everyones hopes and dreams. And do I have to say anything about his behavior in the game? It's just sweet to watch how caring the is about his brother. I think the point where he got me was when I realised, that he knows about our ability to reset reality and that he is actually going to fight us and that he is willing to do this over again. (And MEGALOVANIA is just a sweet, sweet piece of music and my favourite undertale song!)
I think sans is an AMAZING character and I just love How much he cares for his brother.I've even the only way sans will fight you is if you kill papyrus and he also is Extremely lazy, But overall I think sans the bad time giving,judges every move you make ,and works at a hotdog stand.This skeleton is one I'll never forget!
Sans is such a complicated character. I am totally a Sans fangirl, but that's not the only reason why I like him, just because he's popular. There's so much we know about him, and so much we don't. Toby did an excellent job creating a character with so much mystery around him. Sans seems lazy, comedic, and maybe even selfish on the outside, but really he's slightly depressed (more so depending on the route), he's serious, and he really cares about his friends. He's the weakest enemy but will give you a serious bad time. He could have also been a scientist at one point. Also, he loves bad jokes, so how much better can you get?
Sans, in my opinion, is the best character in undertale other than Asriel but MEGALOVANIA is also one of my favorite songs in undertale. I don't really have much to say about it but that's it!
He is the best skeleton in the world. He is slightly eccentric, but that is also one of his most lovable characteristics. He also likes puns unlike what everybody thinks. If someone gave me a dime to write on how good Papyrus is, I will have more money than the amount of atoms in this universe.
Papyrus may act like a dork, but that's the reason why I love him! It's kind of adorable and hilarious to see him behave like that. He's such a big sweetheart, too, he just doesn't like to show it. Also, I'll be honest, he's quite relatable. That moment when you feel like a useless being, wanting to have friends but have none... I had depression due to those things. But what I admire about Papyrus is because he stays positive, and he knows there are still good things in his life. I don't care if Sans is cool, popular, powerful, edgy or "Funny"... Papyrus will always be my favorite.
In my opinion, Papyrus is the best Undertale character for a few reasons. First, he's hilarious in almost every situation he's in. Whether it be making spaghetti for Frisk, going on a date, encouraging Alphys to run laps around the dump with him, or simply jumping out of Undyne's window, he can bring a smile to anyone's face. Another reason Papyrus is amazing is because he's the only chracter in the game that doesn't try to attack you in the genocide run, stating that he beleives anyone can be good if they just try. He's the funniest skeleton in the world, despite his hatred for Sans's puns.
I have watched so many videos of Undertale and played through Undertale so many times and Papyrus will always be my favorite character. I cannot do genocide just because of Papyrus and watching what happens on Youtube made me cry. He is so nice and cannot even kill you even though he knows he has to to join the royal guard. I believe he's a lot more serious and strong than he lets on (go check out the Disbelief Papyrus by FlamesAtGames it is AWESOME), and he could kill you if he wanted. He is kind and helps you out and even never stops believing even if you kill him. #Papyrusisthebest
Undyne is confident, strong as hell, a bit cocky, and most importantly of all, a true heroine.
After chasing you for ages looking like an ominous clanking metal tower, you discover that she's a jerk with a heart of gold during the pacifist run. Making friends with her and getting her together with Alphys are two of the highlights of the game. In the genocide run, though, she truly comes into her own as Undyne the Undying, a badass filled with the determination to save her friends and the underground from you, the real monster. Her death (and she doesn't die easily) is the most tragic in the Genocide run.
Basically, she's a fantastic character. She's no Mary Sue.
I think her whole portrayal is brilliant and realistic (not to mention her design), but the thing that I appreciated quite a lot that others sort of discard was her relationship with Alphys. Although it was sort of vague at first, you soon began to see signs of clear adoration-- the letter, commenting on her intelligence, how her dress on the date looked cute, and ESPECIALLY how she got so triggered when she saw Frisk and Alphys on the "date". I see why Alphys is basically playing the "notice me senpai" card: Undyne's truly fantastic!
I also love how much she cares about Papyrus! When she tells Frisk that he's too nice to fight and teaches him to cook spaghetti instead, I finally felt like my dreams for Undyne's inner personality were validated.
Obviously there were other characteristics about her that I revere, but you guys already covered them nicely
Several points make her my absolute favourite character:
1) She's a good role model for being a strong female
2) She's also a strong female LESBIAN. She is also highly respected, which dramatically breaks sterotypes. The only other character in any media I can think of that has the same qualities as this is Garnet (Steven Universe) so Undyne is quite unique as well.
3) She has a FANTASTIC personally. I'm not even try to describe it, I'll mess it up somehow.
4) You think she'll be the antagonist, but nope! Just very determined to free the monsters.
5) HER THEME IS SO BADASS
6) Not really a character point but... she's kinda hot.
Undyne is so awesome. We're supposed to think she's a big villain at first, but then we find out later that she just wants to protect monsters. She's HILARIOUS in the pacifist run, and a badass in the genocide. In every single run, she's not afraid to lay down her life to save everyone else. If she isn't one of the most awesome, hilarious, and well-developed characters in Undertale, I don't know who is!
I just finished watching the pacifist fight with Asriel for the first time and when I saw Asriel standing there in the cutscene after, I immediately felt guilty. I have always called Flowey a demon and I called him a liar when he said he was the character's best friend. Then I cried. I didn't realize that he was telling the truth the whole time. For everyone here who saw my comments about Flowey being a demon, I'm sorry. I realize that he is not as bad as I thought.
I find this funny. I finished watching the Genocide ending (which was scary) earlier. This whole time I've wanted Flowey to die, but when he was killed by Chara, I fell to the ground and almost cried. Sure I wanted this plant demon to die, but this was actually Asriel. Next time Chara, kill Flowey when he's the souless demon please.
My favorite character in undertale BY FAR. When I first played it, I absolutely despised Flowey. But after I replayed it a couple times, I found that he has potential. He's just this creepy ass flower who wants to kill you. And after finding out that he was actually Asriel, I was FREAKING out. Asriel is also just a sweet little bean who didn't do anything wrong. My point is, they (both?) are amazing.
Asriel is the best character in Undertale. I have no idea why he isn't in the top 10. His story gives off the most feels, his boss fight is the coolest, he has infinite health, meaning that NOTHING can kill him...and he's just a sweet little boy who just wanted to FEEL again. He didn't know what he was doing as a flower. He just did what his mind told him to do. He's also a really cute character and everyone, and I mean EVERYONE wants the same thing: to SAVE Asriel. And if everyone wants to SAVE him, then why isn't HE at the top of the list?...I guess during the genocide run, people just forgot about him and forgot about who he was.
In short, Asriel is an adorable character who has the most tragic backstory that I've ever heard. He deserves more love. Not LOVE, but love. All of it.
...Don't forget the goat child. After all, he's YOUR best friend.
I think we give Alphys a lot less credit than she deserves. One of her lines in the quiz show basically foreshadowed the creation of Deltarune (As it was in development at this time, or at least an idea) and she also basically saves the dark world by sending the two heroes of light. Besides, she's one of the more relatable characters: She's a nerd, she uses Social Media, she lies to make people think she's cooler than she says she is, and she's socially awkward. Besides, she's LGBTQ+. How often do we see positive representation of that in video games? (Ok, well I know it's in a lot of games now, but a while ago any of the representation was either criminalized or censored)
Okay lets get this down Alphys is my number 1 favorite character, no doubt. Sure people may hate her for bothering the player during the second half of the game but honestly unlike characters like Navi from Legend of Zelda, Alphys can actually be funny and it is very realistic but I can understand why people can hate her for that. But also I like her character because she is very relate able due to her tragic past and her not knowing if she can come to terms with herself or not, its just very relate able but anyways she is my favorite character.
It's an anime loving lizard lady who has a crush on Undyne, which isn't very secret. She is very cute and socially awkward and kinda relatable.
She is like the female lizard version of myself. I can totally relate to her. I am always on social media annoying people, I have a crush on someone who acts as a great friend, I can't stop writing stupid fan fictions, I sometimes feel suicidal, I am always nervous around my friends and new people, I love anime, I like to get creative when I think of new things and I make A LOT of mistakes. That's why I love her so much. She is one of the most realistic characters of the game.
Yes mettaton the the best he is so hilarious. His boss fight was really fun to do but I wish you could spare him bc he is the only boss monster you can't spare and believe me, it's heartbreaking.
I love Mettaton for many reasons. 1. He is incredibly hilarious, I love when he "sings" in the musical or randomly turns into a humanoid robot with awesome legs! 2. He is consistently funny. Try to think of a moment that completely stands out in hilarity. Hmm... you got the quiz show, the cooking show, the musical, when he turns into Mettaton ex. Wait that's every funny moment! 3. Though he appears to be a selfish jerk, he is only doing "evil" things for Alphys, he reunites with his cousin at the end of the true pacifist route. And he only attempts to take your soul to save humanity from Asgore (and fulfill his lifelong dream) but realised that he really is an incredibly important character for the underground, as so many people would be depressed If he was gone... 4. He is also very important to the story as if he was never made, Alphys would never have become royal scientist and Flowey would never have been created therefore stopping true pacifist or any ending really, from ...more
He has never failed to make my laugh, every time I encounter him, I start crying laughing and my whole family stare at me like I'm insane. And not to mention the most obvious thing about him, he's fabulous! He reminds me of Aoyama from My Hero Academia.
He is by far the most refreshing of encounters in the game, and is easly the reason why I keep coming back to this game. I don't particularly dislike either of the three forms he's capable of talking. They are all perfect for different situations, though his neo forms defense is incomplete. If it had been completed, the fight with him while on genocide, would have been far more or just as difficult as the one against Sans. Since intendedly, his propose for being created, was for human erratication. It's ironic since he wants to protect humanity from you, should you choose the genocide path. But his true reasons for having himself built like that, was because of a deal with Alphys to impress Asgore. Make her the royal scientists and in exchange, the body would also make Mettaton the star of the underground, and also a star for us too.
Toriel is an amazing, well written character. She is the tutorial character of Undertale, of course, and she helps you with the game. Unlike Flowey, the supposed tutorial character. Throughout your journey in the ruins, you come to love her, but of course her flaws shine through at the end of the ruins where you must fight her to leave, playing normally, you would think undertale is a regular rpg which relies on killing enemies to proceed but this is not the case at all, and you may end up killing a character you learned to love. Overall, Goat Mom is simply the best
Sweet goat mama, how could you not love her? I, personally, like the canon version of her more than the fanon. She's not this high-key thick mom that yall 12 year olds want to bang. She's this kind, big-hearted, loving mother to anyone.
I love her really much. People are mean saying that she is mean to Asgore just by not willing to restart a relationship with him. They are also mean if they think that she must be kind to him even if he is the killer of her children. Yes, she abandonned her people, but it was to have the chance to save children who didn't deserved to have their soul eaten by a giant goat dad and, by saving them, she could manage to prevent the iminent war between human and monsters. She even saved asgore in the end of de pacifist! What a cool character.
My sister killed her in her first route and stopped a genocide route when she met papyrus so toriel died by my sisters hands
Frisk is the main character but even though we all know them and think that they're good I mean they are but think about it, they're kinda heroic in a way. I mean look if you've played UNDERTALE you know what I mean Chara and Frisk are trying to save the Underground. They both have no reason for any hate along side with any UNDERTALE character.
I love Frisk shes cool and the fact she could free the mosters but Asgor can't makes me more like he rand she could be friends with monsters that wants to kill her?
It's the main character. Some people believe that you only truly play as Frisk in pacifist but I believe in genocide it's just an influence from Chara and we are always Frisk; We just choose what we think.
in my opinion, frisk is a girl. I'm also anti-genocide route. I mean, frisk IS after all the main protagonist in the game. I think that frisk is so cool.
Asgore is so underrated. He is the greatest and most complex character in all Undertale. Sans knows how to hack life itself and prefers to sell hot dogs and threat Frisk. Papyrus is an idiot who got a literal god to protect him. Undyne is a fish warrior who sucks at her job. Alphys is a scientist who did cruel things in the name of science. And Toriel left her husband because she loves children and never broke the barrier until it was the seventh child that Asgore needed to open the gate. Asgore on the other hand was a father who got no problem with humans for trapping them underground and also adopted a random child that fall into the mountain. And he when both of his children died instead of suiciding he wanted to do something about it. And he is the bad guy. Because adults and people in charge are awful.
The big boss, hyped up to be a ruthless killing machine, but is really just a king trying to save his people the best way he can. He doesn't want to kill you but he will try to get his people to the surface. He's really very sweet and kind.
Asgore is better than a lot of the other characters in this list, both in term of personality and depth but also in his comportment and in his manner of thinking. And he decided to sacrifice a lot to help all of them.
Unlike Sans, he did had faith in you from the beginning and didn't want you to die. Which is ironic, because he is the one that had to kill you but easily the one monster that want to do it the least. He deserves a place highter than Metatton, Alphys and especially Toriel, who is arguably the character I dislike the most in this game (dude, in my second run, after I take the time to study her character, I don't hesitated to attack her all the way, and then I realized Asgore still deeply love her, and I stop right before beginning a Genocide route, by sparing her).
Which is one of the many points that make him more complex than the top 3 of this list.
What annoys me the most is without a doubt Sans's fans.
It's like any popular character's fan. They are fans ...more
The reason that he destroys the mercy option in the fight isn't because he doesn't think mercy is good, but instead because he doesn't think he deserves mercy after what he is gonna do. He never intended to hurt anybody and is extremely depressed since he lost Chara, Asriel AND Toriel. Poor guy.
They are definitely the strongest UT character we know. Stronger than all monsters, stronger than Flowey… And stronger than LV20 Frisk. Chara erases everything even when we say "DO NOT" (erase). He also deals infinite damage to Frisk after he says he will erase everything, even behind our 99 def.
But they definitely where not evil when alive. Or at the very least, the "they were just trying to kill all of monster kind & everything went according to their plan" is wrong! In your first genocide finished play through when he 1st appears he says something like, "how am I here? Our plan failed, didn't it?" He's not talking about frisk, as he's talking about before they got to the underground as they are pondering how they are reincarnated. "Our plan" = theirs & Aserel's plan. The plan to have aserel take chara's soul through the barrier & gather more souls to brake it afterwards. He always cared about monsters, but didn't like humans maybe some due to underground ...more
So I know many people HATE Chara but there is NO reason too. She KILLED herself for the monster kind and it's like nobody even knows who she is! It's just so mean how this character has no attention given to her like I get it there ARE better characters but come on people the story would not progress if Chara was not there she even translates for you! Nobody EVER seems to care what Chara does for us! And don't even try to come at me and be all like "Oh but she's evil" No that's NOT TRUE! It's US who choses Fight or Mercy if you chose Mercy Chara will be our friend but fighting only leads to making her think that killing is GOOD she's like 10-12 she's still a kid! So she will take on after anybody who shows her what is "right"
A lot of people hate Chara because newer players who haven't played the game never looked at their dialogue where they specifically say "With your guidance I realized the true purpose of my reincarnation. Power." which means because you killed all of those people you pretty much corrupted Chara in the process. Also people may not realize it but Chara is arguably the most important character in the game. Why? Because if Asriel didn't mistake you for Chara in the true pacifist run, he probably wouldn't have stopped fighting and also because if Chara becomes evil because of your genocide run then you can never get a happy ending... Overall, Chara is an under rated character and deserves more attention.
"I am the child known as "Chara." I whom you have named without knowledge of my name. I was so innocent, so pure, yet now look at me. Feeding on what you created. I never wanted to kill. I had to, to save my new family. He resisted, and yet I came back? Why? Because their screams woke me up. And yet, I couldn't feel anything. Just a desire to feel again. And when your knife went through her heart, I felt stronger. Glimmers of emotion flitted through me. I wanted more. You didn't stop. Papyrus, Undyne, Mettaton, Sans. I want to die. Erase the world, and forget all my sins, your sins, what I did to my brother, my family. Just kill everyone, and go on with your life. Forget I ever existed. I won't stop you. (You chose ERASE) Thank you. Now I can die a hero, finally stopping the killer. You started this. I finished it with desire."
This is what I'd think Chara should say at the end of a 5th Genocide Run, because of what you did over and over, and how she may feel guilty about killing ...more
Tem, Temmie, Temmie, Tem, Temmie, Tem, Temmie!
an original breakfast!
it's so good you can't taste it!
don't forget to digest it!
Temmie flakes in your mouth!
Temmie Flakes! Part of a complete breakfast! wawuwawuwawu! - song by Fandroid and Griffinilla.
Welcome to da tem shop! Egg! Will hatch! Tem proud parent! "It's hard boiled"
I hear human allergic to tem. But dat ok! Tem ALSO allergic to tem!
Temmie is the best! He/she is based off a artist and he/she is funny, happy and derpy! If you are looking for a cosplay then I would recommened this fun and loved Undertale character, however the cosplay may take a lot of hard work, hardship and attention. I am working on my Temmie cosplsy outfit right now!
What why isn't Temmie number 10 or lower?!?! Mettaton is just liked for "dem legs", but you can actually buy and sell with the adorable character Temmie. Hopefully people vote for Tem! #Tem2016
When I first saw Napstablook, my heart exploded into millions of tiny pieces. Blooky was a character I could actually relate to, their feelings and emotions, their love for music, and their introverted complexion. There is no reason why you shouldn't cherish this lovable ghost. They are courteous to others, they don't want to waste your time, and even Blooky's themes (yes, even Ghouliday) are, in my ultimate opinion, amazing. It is a shame we do not see Blooky often in the game, but they are a character I will always keep going back to because of the amazing features given to Blooky that make them the way they are. So, at the end of the day, with the question asked, 'Heck Yeah. I would be smooching that ghost for sure.'
Kind, anxiety bean. As soon as I saw Napstablook, my heart melted. I love him to death even though he's one of those 'background characters' if you will.
"Sorry, not really feeling it right now..." Ok, seriously though, Nabstablook is an adorable character with a great personality, and is actually really deep, as it's quite obvious they're (Blooky never had a confirmed gender) fighting depression. It's easy to feel sympathy towards them, and you can't not fall in love with their funny attempts to be polite, even when you try to murder them (not that I would, I refuse to do genocide ).
Napstablook is one of those characters we can all relate to. He was neglected, scared, and had anxiety, but someone chose to change that. He shows that you can over come depression, meet your goals, and be satisfied with just one piece of family. I'm surprised he's not higher. Looks like people went for the unrealistic depression who is a badass, typical.
I know it's weird (since she's such a minor character) but Muffet is probably my favorite character in Undertale. On the surface, she seems overly-greedy and mean, but you realize that's not the case when you look at her below the surface. All she wants is to protect her friends: the spiders. Though it may look like she's fighting you because she'll get paid to do so, but in actuality, she only attacks because she thinks you hate spiders, and she has been told that you rejoice in killing them. The moment she finds out that's not the case, she immediately forfeits the money and lets you go, going so far as to apologize for the trouble. After that, she looks at Frisk as another friend, and goes so far as to try to protect him/her from Flowey at the end of the game. Her love for her friends and selfless willingness to stand up for them makes me admire Muffet. She's like Undyne in that regard. However, the fact that it isn't as obvious as it is with Undyne, I feel, makes her a very ...more
This one boss, for some reason, became my bisexual awakening. She was spider waifu for a long time. I owe it to her that I'm bisexual now.
I love her! Her design is beautiful, her song is excellent and her fight is fun. I don't know I just really like this character.
I'm surprised Muffet is this high up. Either way she's my favourite character and I wish that we got to know more about her.
WingDings Gaster is the best UnderTale character ever, because much is unknown and there are many comics and other things that say so much about him. I recommend 'The Man Who Speaks In Hands' and 'Ask Frisk and Company".
A true mystery of a character never to be revealed. The first Royal Scientist, a figure who was erased from the timeline when he fell into his 'creation'. Perhaps I should stop there, I needn't gossip about someone who's listening... and watching.
Add it to the tall black and white group: Slenderman, the puppet, night nations and Gaster!
Tra la la.
Beware the man who speaks in hands.
Tra la la.
Is there something your not telling us, river guy?
How the hell is he trying to "seduce" a ten year old.
He's just trying to be super famous. And plus Frisk's age is not confirmed
As if his previous schemes werent bad enough now he's trying to seduce A 10 YEAR OLD!
Why did my toaster turn into a JoJo character?
Please, the music is so good and he look AMAZING anyway he is one of my top favorite characters
He's hot. He's bartender. He's patient with sans and his tab. And he has a lovely supposed niece.
Grillby said he would get you a glass of water but doesn't touch the stuff.
Grillby is probably my favorite character. He should be higher.
Why does everyone forget Grillby?
Fly me to the moon. Wait. Actually. Don't. Please.
I spent forever petting him. It was great
Strongest being ever know. Killed trillions of sans in a different timeline just by looking at them...
It's a big dog. How can you not like a big dog?
But, you have not pet enough!
Cute and innocent.
He's just HILARIOUS. I think that he is even tied with Papyrus for the funniest character in the game.
Never thought a shop NPC would be pretty deep. He seems like your regular adult who is stuck in an unlikeable job.
"I can't go to hell. I'm all out of vacation days." This sentence sums up why I love burgerpants. HUMOR
Burgerpants is definitely one of the funniest characters in the game.
Remove an A and you get a Pokemon!
Aaron is pretty cool
So funny! Absorbing the orb, it's theme song, it even represents the creator of the game himself Toby Fox come on!
His theme is really good for trolling and awesome.
He is not annoying. He is... sweetly annoying!
The annoying dog absorbs this comment.
Like that he's a animal.
Doggo is adorable
"I am good Doggo"
What? Why am I so low on the list? Even people who are fanmade and not in-game are higher! Why, Why!, WHY!
Music is very catchy and the fight is funny why is he so low?
You scared me out of my high rank!
She is the newest boss added in Undertale and I already love her
She should be higher
I love her boss fight
Show me what love is
