Top Ten Best Undertale Characters
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 is hilarious and he stands up for his friends and family and what he believes in. His boss fight is super hard. The hardest in the game in my opinion. That is to teach you a lesson. Also, when you do the true pacifist ending, Sans try's to help and encourage you. He also has a good taste in condiments. He is very mysterious and he can do things no other monsters can. He is also very strong willed and he's like me when it comes to being comfy and lazy. And if something even scratches his little brother Papyrus, he will destroy it. Sans has a very good taste in puns. He is such a "bonehead! "
I really like his character. It's so complex, yet easy going. I absolutely love bad jokes, so this guy was pretty much the coolest in my book. But when I got to the genocide, I died so many times it wasn't even funny. It took me 3 months, playing over and over every day to beat him. Needless to say, I had Megolivania stuck in my head for several weeks. Even though this game is 4 years old, It is still, and always will be, the best game I have ever played. And Sans (despite the memes) is still the coolest character. And his theme is still great. I'll admit, I was super discouraged by the fandom when thinking about playing the game. And fangirls were literally everywhere, but I'm glad looked past all the toxic stuff, because this game, and this character were both really amazing. So... yeah. I also tell bad jokes left and right, and my friends love the character as well.
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!)
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.
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
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.
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.
Undyne is brave, strong, and gives a boss fight unlike any other. The cooking lesson was very funny, (in the good ole' undyne way) she is one of the best characters.
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 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!
His story is incredibly sad and tragic as he dies after finishing his sibling's final request before they died. When he gets brought back to life as flowey he can feel anything so he does everything he can in the underground but his final fight in pacifist shows that he is still that little kid who just wants to feel something.
Flowey is my favorite character, mainly because of his story. Notice how he lets you kill or spare him in the true pacifist run? He doesn't even do anything about it. The reason I can't do genocide is because of the rumors that you must kill him and it is very sad….
I also know that he is Asriel, who is a very friendly guy. Flowey just can't feel love.
Flowey deserves more than he gets a lot of the time.
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 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.
a lot of people hate her because of the true lab experiments, but I just can't. what happened wasn't really her fault, she was just following orders. I can't be mad at her for being a coward and hiding her failures without informing the families, because if I was her, I probably would have done the same.
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.
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 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.
Mettaton is the literal best character! He is so dramatic and enthusiastic! And them legs so hot you could pop popcorn in them. He is very funny to like in the "musical" when he was singing. He is really engaging and his theme song is epic! I mean what's cooler than a shiny, glamorous, funny, show star, robot. definitely best character he is under rated to. It broke my heart when he ran out of battery. ( he is so hot tho :o)
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
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.
Goat Mom is my absolute favorite character other than Papyrus. She is me. I feel this connection with her unlike any other character from anything honestly. Think about it.. Who has been the most affected by this whole story? Toriel. Yet.. She has held it together. Somehow. And here you are. Her next chance at happiness with a child. But, she has to let you go.
She definitely did know what was best for you she didn't want you to go out of the ruins because the other like 6 children who did DIED. So she wanted to save you from that fate, in her battle with you she wont even hurt you when your under 3 health so its not shes a character who wants to kill you, in my opinion she is such a loving character and care taker
best and saddest character in the game.
he lost his entire family many years ago. eating the butterscotch pie during his fight lowers his defense because it reminds him of the good old days.
he had to do terrible things for the sake of his people, but he regrets it to a degree such that he can't even look you in the eyes while fighting you. he's the most powerful monster in the underground, but holds back against you. his fight is probably the most emotional one in the game (and his theme SLAPS, best song in the entire ost no cap), and walking around his home is extremely touching too.
and yet, despite his terrible story, he still is a super wholesome guy? look at him watering flowers, drinking tea, and trying to fix his relationship with toriel!
I swear I love this guy so much, too bad the community doesn't seem to share my opinion at all :')
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.
Asgore is what every Father should be, a sweet, goofy guy with a heart bigger and thicker than his skull. The poor guy had to choose between the hope of hundreds of his friends and citizens or his family. Give Asgore a chance! When you fight him, he can't even look at you, he's too beside himself with remorse. he's not a bad guy, and he is not the terrible creature the Fandom portrays him on. Oh, and am I the only one who thinks that Asgore would smell like flowers and spices?
Seriously, this guy needs way more recognition. He's my favorite character in the game, just because of how sweet but powerful he is at the same time. And you never really ever get to see his true power, because you can tell he's holding back by the look on his face when the battle starts. The music is the best music in the game in my opinion, and just seriously, who could hate this guy?
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.
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.
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.
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 love Chara as a character. Not as bad as you think they might be, but also not as good as those who try to justify them say. You are the one who decided to do the genocide route but at the same time Chara isn't all that great or an angel either. Look at it this way. Chara according to Asriel isn't "the best person" and they laughed about the poisoning of Asgore (even though laughing is a coping method and some people think Asriel was too innocent to know. My opinion okay). They also wanted to kill all the humans (even if they were just trying to protect them) and the plan was likely die and combine with Asriel and kill humans (just a theory) and hates humanity. We don't get the reasoning for the hatred but there most likely is a reason. Regardless, the character and lore that goes into this and the puzzle pieces that you need to fit together just makes this CHARActer (shut up about it okay? ) my favorite.
"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
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"
Temmie is funny, cats and dogs are my favourite animals, and she is the only vendor you can sell to. Also she has Temmie armour the best pacifist armour.
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
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!
Temmie is cute and dreams collage. I want to see Temmie go to the collage.
bruh how could you not like napstablook anyways this ghost is one of my favorite characters in the game besides papyrus anyways he's kinda relatable I can kinda relate to him he's a cool character he's so underrated most people talk about sans or papyrus but this guy needs more attention.
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.'
"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
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.
I instantly fell in love with her design. I'm always a fan of insects and arachnids, muffin gave it a whole new meaning.
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!
HE is mysterious, and interesting even without info about him. Better than Mettaton EX. Better than legs
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
Why did my toaster turn into a JoJo character?
As if his previous schemes werent bad enough now he's trying to seduce A 10 YEAR OLD!
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...
A dog that's greater then lesser dog... must mean he's better and cooler somehow
It's a big dog. How can you not like a big dog?
But, you have not pet enough!
He's just HILARIOUS. I think that he is even tied with Papyrus for the funniest character in the game.
"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.
Burgerpants is literally me at my job! I hate my job, but I just can't quit!
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"
Music is very catchy and the fight is funny why is he so low?
What? Why am I so low on the list? Even people who are fanmade and not in-game are higher! Why, Why!, WHY!
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
