Top Ten Best Undertale Characters

The Top Ten
1 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 ...read more.

I was watching someone fight him at at the end when he says, "Papyrus, do you want anything?" I almost cried. I hate to say this man, but your brother is dead.

This guy is amazing, he is so funny and made me laugh so much during undertale, but he also has a much sadder side to him, knowing about resets, timelines, and all that. I also really love how he is with papyrus, and trys to protect papyrus in the genocide route. Sans reaction to papyrus death is very real ( though we don"t get to see much of it), I would never do genocide, because thinking about what sana would have to go through, just breaks my heart. Also his theme (meglovaina) is AMAZING!

Sans is obviously fan-favorite, not only because he is hilarious in the True-Pacifist run (puns, Grillby's, MTT Resort dinner or whatever, head-dogs, etc.), but MAN, he is a complex character. He is a total beast when it comes to the Genocide-run, (keeping this kid-friendly) but it seems he has a bit of background with different elements of different topics, such as his scientific background or how he is with Papyrus, etc., and he seems like a pretty complex dude. But, if I may, he is pretty much a character that stands out from the rest. (I might get off topic) Sans is a character that just seems to have a different kind of feel to him, not only for how remarkable he is, but just how he links strongly to each story-line of the game itself. He is one of the major characters, for example, in a book or a movie you just have to question what he will do next, only to find out he did a hilarious move or something. One of the last things I wanna say is just that Sans is one of the most ...more

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?

2 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 ...read more.

It's a skeleton that knows what he wants, to be a popular spaghetti makin' royal guard. He is just so loveable and kind and believes in you until the very end.

Papyrus is really the best character and no one can say otherwise he should be number one,#best undertale character is you read this comment.But seriously vote papyrus

In my opinion, Papyrus is one of the best characters in the game. He'd believed in you, no matter how bad of a person you were. He has so much potential. He's got a bit of an ego and can accidentally cause big problems. But he would never hurt someone on purpose. And all that just makes him who he is. In conclusion, he is a good character.

Our favourite pasta loving skeleton a year younger than his brother wow if you drew him as a human he'd be really tall but anyway it's sweet how he believes in you even though in Genocide you kill him. His last words are "I still believe in you..." that's just sad.

3 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, ...read more.

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

Undyne is cool sometimes I just can't kill her I always give her the water and never sees what happens undyne is just the best

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!

4 Flowey (Asriel)

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.

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.

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.

I don't get why Flowey has so much hate but we all love the little goat boy Asriel. I mean sure Flowey tries to kill you, but he's soul less he lost his soul when him and Chara died. Even though they we're kids like no child should die that early in they're life! Chara is 5-7 and Asriel is 7 that's so young! That shouldn't have happened but if it didn't UNDERTALE wouldn't be the same.

5 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 ...read more.

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.

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.

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)

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.

6 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!"

I tried to find an ending where I don't blast his arms and legs off and eventually gave up because he was crushing me like a bug but he made me laugh so hard when I saw him in that dress like it was so funny I never really saw him after I battled him does that mean he survived powering down?

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.

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

Mettaton never fails to make me laugh. Not to mention his songs are great I could listen to Death by Glamor all day everyday! He allso has a interesting backstory. And have you seen those legs?

7 Toriel

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

8 Frisk

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?

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.

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.

9 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 ...read more.

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 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.

Unlike toriel, staying like a coward in the ruins and letting the children die, he apologized for what he did. THat makes him a better person than Toriel. Besides that, he has such an interesting character.

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

10 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. Her name can be changed by the player and will be assumed as the player character, until the Pacifist Route when Asriel asks for the ...read 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"

Chara is not a heartless person and never was. They'd never murdered anyone and had no evil intentions. Everyone is blaming them for the player's actions. Many people also believe that Chara had gotten Asriel killed on purpose, despite them being great friends and loving each other as if they were actual siblings. Chara had done it to break the barrier and not to get Asriel killed. I honestly think that Chara deserves more love.

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.

Chara is the best CHARAkter they even kill you when you make genocide. They "judge" you because you killed there friends the Monsters

The Contenders
11 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 ...read more.

Temmie is probably the best character well temmie can be a derp sometimes and if you press flex it will change to aaron whoops some spoiler

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

12 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.

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.

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.’

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.

"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 ).

13 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.

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 how all the characters tend to have these deep motives for their actions, and Muffet's just like, "Give me your money."

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.

14 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 . ...read more.

W.D.Gaster is an Anomaly wich has around 0.1% Chance of appearing.
Due to the fact that the system signed him as an „Non-Existend Entity“ are his powers only known trough the comics and animations about him wich have a lot of similarities.
Some of his powers are:
-the unlimited use and control of Gaster Blasters
-the use of 6 floating hands each with one power similar to the colors of the six human souls (except determination wich is the 7th)
-unlimited stamina and health due to him being Non-Existend
-no weakness
-the control over the void
His powers include a bad-time mode wich is similar to the one of sans (except his eyes turn either red or purple) wich makes him approximately a million times stronger.

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!

15 Mettaton EX

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

Please, the music is so good and he look AMAZING anyway he is one of my top favorite characters

I shown my brother this and he freaked out it was the same with the normal mettaton

As if his previous schemes werent bad enough now he's trying to seduce A 10 YEAR OLD!

16 Grillby

He's hot. He's bartender. He's patient with sans and his tab. And he has a lovely supposed niece.

Grillby is probably my favorite character. He should be higher.

Grillby is the best character no questions asked

Why does everyone forget Grillby?

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

I pet him until he went up and back down again like twice

Fly me to the moon. Wait. Actually. Don't. Please.

Pet him to much he go's where no dog has been

I spent forever petting him. It was great

18 Greater Dog

Strongest being ever know. Killed trillions of sans in a different timeline just by looking at them...

Greater dogs theme song is rhe best theme song ever it's so cute when it licks you after the battle

Before chara destroyed the world he killed her

It's a big dog. How can you not like a big dog?

19 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.

Out of all the characters in Undertale, this is the most relatable for me (and the quotes are amusing as well.)

"I can't go to hell. I'm all out of vacation days." This sentence sums up why I love burgerpants. HUMOR

He's just HILARIOUS. I think that he is even tied with Papyrus for the funniest character in the game.

Burgerpants is definitely one of the funniest characters in the game.

20 Aaron

Aaron is ready for your next flex

Remove an A and you get a Pokemon!

Aaron is pretty cool

AARON FLEXES IN!

21 Annoying Dog

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.

I mean, he made the game, you got to thank him for that

I love sleep and a being annoying so this my like

22 Doggo

I like it when he barks he's kinda cute and funny

Like that he's a animal.

Doggo is adorable

"I am good Doggo"

23 Mad Dummy

What? Why am I so low on the list? Even people who are fanmade and not in-game are higher! Why, Why!, WHY!

Annoying fight, but funny character

You scared me out of my high rank!

FUTILE FUTILE FUTILE!

24 Mad Mew Mew

She was recently added in Nintendo and I have to admit her boss fight is awesome

I love Mad Mew Mew in such a short time she became so popular in the fandom

She is the newest boss added in Undertale and I already love her

I have the power of god and anime on my side

25 Woshua

Yeah! All you people who dislike him... WOSH U SOUL!

Wosh your soul woshua

if you do not vote for wosh u have to WOSH U SOUL!

wosh u hand. wosh u leg. WOSH U SOUL!
