Top Ten Best Undertale Characters

Rematar

The Top Ten

1 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 ...read more.

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

I agree with everything this post has to say! Sans is amazing and hilarious and in my personal opinion is the most important character in the game when it comes to the actual story line. So basically all I'm saying in this comment is that well sans is the best character in undertale in my heart and it will stay that way as long as I'm part of this fandom!

Badass mofo

2 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 ...read more.

Papyrus is prideful, sure, but he also has a kind heart. He's willing to help his friends out with any problems they might have, and he's nice to everyone-even if you kill him in Genocide, he still supports you. He's also the most hilarious character in the game. His quirkiness and niceness makes him my personal favorite character. - Garythesnail

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.

Papyrus lost himself in popularity, but you always know his heart is in the right place. He's the only monster that truly downright refuses to kill you, no matter how you act. While seeming like a loud and popularity craving fanatic, he truly just wants a few friends. He's probably the most outgoing character in the game as well. Papyrus' philosophy and his talkative nature makes him a great character.

I think that Papyrus is easily the greatest charachter in Undertale because of his personality. Not only is he the funniest charachter (an example being jumping out of Undyne's window and having his special attack being stealed by the annoying dog) but he is just a loving skeleton with a heart of gold pretending to be a "Cool Dude" to every one. And the amazing thing about him is that even when you decapitate him in genocide, his dying words were encouragment and forgiveness. He's basically Jesus. Also, he loves his brother Sans (who is very overrated) a lot and his childish personality and quirkyness cracks me up. And finally the main reason you should love him is that HE MAKES THE BEST SPAGHETTI. NYEH HE HE! He is truly the great Papyrus.

3 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, ...read more.

Undyne touched my heart in a way that hasn't been done by any other video game character for years. Her smile, her humour, her love, and her DETERMINATION to fight for her friends, everything about her is incredible.

Smells like sushi. - Meredy

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!

I love undyne because she is just a hilarious badass!

4 Flowey (Asriel) Flowey (Asriel)

I used to think Flowey was Satan...until I saw that he was just poor Asriel - WitheredBonnie

I love Flowey. He is like my first favourite video game villain of all times! He is sinister, sympathetic, mysterious, evil, selfish, creepy and a double-crosser! I mean he is the first character you meet in the game and what happens next? He turns into a nightmare-fueled beast! Flowey is the ultimate video game, and being an antagonist to a child is such a cool idea! - Daviddv0601

In my opinion I think Flowey is one of the best characters. At first you are to believe he is a nice and gentle flower. He's smiling for the most of the time when you're with him, and he offers you a tutorial on how to play the game. Then he's suddenly the heartless, cruel, soulless, and deceitful villain. Some people might be surprised by this, but he may also appear to be suspicious. He then turns out to be a cute little floofy goat in the end and he's automatically you're favorite!

Flowey/asriel is such a good character, in pacifist he gave me the most feels

5 Alphys 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.

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. - Daviddv0601

She's like a lot of people. Mad at themselves, and so nervous. We support you, Alphys!

Alphys is the best character in the game in my opinion, closely followed by Sans. She is relatable, kind and loves anime. Awesome. In the pacifist route she shows us nerds that we can get past our insecurities, and that is why, Alphys is my favourite.

ANIME
:D

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

Basically, I absolutely love Toriel and she is BY FAR my favorite character in Undertale. And perhaps she is my favorite character from any media I have ever experienced.

I'll come forward and say I might even consider it to be an obsession (up for debate). Although I feel that it has positively affected me overall.

If you want the LONG explanation, Read on:

! ***WARNING: SPOILERS***!

Toriel spoke to me (figuratively) in a way that that no other character in could. Her struggle and her backstory are things that I can relate to and sympathize with. I lost my cat to old age. And I witnessed the funeral held by a family who lost their dear son (After he had been part of their lives for over 20 years).

Toriel's situation I found to be analogous to what I experienced. I felt powerful emotions resurface when exposed to Toriel's back story.

I also adore her character. I am so drawn to her motherly nature and the loving warmth, sweetness, care and ...more

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

My favourite character, I love you goat mom

Aghh when Toriel did her little monologue after you repeatedly try to spare her, it really rugged at my heartstrings. AND THEN SHE HUGGED FRISK AND I WAS LIKE “I will never forget you anthropomorphic goat mom! ”
I’ve honestly loved Toriel from the moment she unknowingly kicked her son and insulted him. Ack.

7 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!"

Haha, Mettaton is amazing! He's really funny! And random, too. He's pretty fabulous in his EX form, but I prefer him in his normal form.

I love how he is basically running a show and trying to kill you at the same time.

Mettaton is the best! And it's not just because of the legs! He has a great character, and who can't love his relationship with his cousin? he may have been a ghost, then a robot, but everyone knows he, unlike others, has a soul. This is just such an amazing character. I love him.

Mettaton's personality is the best!

I took a quiz to see what character I was most like, and my results were Frisk. I AM FILLED WITH DETERMINATION!

Same! I wonder if someone had Chara as a result, and they were being honest the whole way. - WitheredBonnie

I looked so much like Frisk when I was in kindergarten! I had the short haircut and everything (Oh my Asgore she looks like an Asian Dora.Cute.) - WitheredBonnie

Frisk is filled with determination in the underground! This character is amazing! -Anonymous

9 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 ...read more.

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

Asgore is such a lovely character. He doesn't WANT to kill you, and isn't the 'disgusting monster' that the fandom portrays him as. He gives you every chance to go back when entering his battle-- and even though he could easily kill you in just one hit...He doesn't. He's just a big sad goat dad!

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?

Asgore rules the underground with an iron fist he as so is gentle that is why he is may favorite character

The Contenders

11 Chara 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. His 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.

You think that you can blame your faults on Chara. That, it doesn't matter that you did a genocide run- because it was Chara's fault...Just shut up. YOU did the genocide run. They're young, impressionable...they need to be taught how to act, because they sure enough didn't live a happy life on the surface-- There's no villain in Undertale, and there doesn't have to be, unless YOU decide to take that role.

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.

Who could be the better character than the demon who haunts you through numerous timelines for your crimes? Chara is a vengeful force in Undertale that many players can't accept, because it's the only character you can't do anything about, the only one who they can't control. No matter what you do, how you play it, there is no escape from Chara for the true monster in the game, YOU.

People blame Chara for the genocide route... like seriously?!? You the player are to blame! Have some common sense. It’s your fault you choose genocide, stop blaming Chara for your actions.

12 Asriel

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 feel so bad for Asriel! First, he was killed by humans. Second, he is a flower. Third, in the genocide route, Chara kills him!

I he is most innocent character in the game, and is probably the one that made the player the most emotional

You hug asriel it fills you with determination.

13 Napstablook 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.

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.

He is just so adorable! I definitely would smooch this ghost.

He's a cute ghost with a love of music.

Would you smooch a ghost? Heck Yeah!

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".

16 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.

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

Muffet is my favorite for many reasons 1 she just wants to reunite the spider clans if you and your family where separated what would you do you would probably do what she is doing try to reunite and the only reason she wants the money is to help out spiders

Her soundtrack is such a pleasure in mind!

Burgerpants is life. Easily the realest character for me.
