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

Badass mofo

too bad I've beat his boss fight so many times it isn't challenging anymore - Rematar

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!

Sans is the Best

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.

That face though - TinyToonsGirl45

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

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!

Such a tough character. Makes us think she's gonna be a "bad guy" but then befriends you. The genocide battle with her is AMAZING. And she's just so strong. Always believes in you. Undyne is just awesome. You kill her and SHE DOESN'T DIE. She's the only monster able to have determination and not melt into pieces straight away. And the music during her battles are magnificent.

Undyne is a badass! She is bye far my favourite character. She is selfless, brave and determined. She is AWESOME

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!

I do not like flowey. He's a jerk but sometimes I understand him. I voted for this guy because he is Asriel. Asriel will forever be my favorite character in undertale. Also undoublty the best fight in undertale.

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

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.

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

She is so cute!

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

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

Who wouldn't vote their one and only goat mom? Toriel is so awesome ever since! She also sweet and kind, and I love her butterscotch pie or whatever flavor it is even if I can't eat it in real life

I love Toriel!

7 Asgore Asgore Asgore Dreemurr is a boss monster and the king of the monsters in the 2015 RPG Undertale made by Toby Fox. Asgore is the portrayed main antagonist who plans to acquire seven human souls and use their power to break the barrier that seals the monsters underground . Aspects of his character are hinted ...read 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 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.

No one realizes that in the pascifist run you must spare toriel, spare papyrus and date him therefore making sans happy, befriend alphys, show mettaton his mistakes, befriend undyne, go through the true lab just to appease everyone, but Asgore just becomes your friend and instantly supports you. And just gonna say ashore probably feels more hopeless then sans and still has a lot of hp and does a lot of damage even though he doesn't want too. How powerful would a hopeful angry asgore be. He could probably 1 hit kill anything.

8 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.

MTT is just wonderful.

9 Frisk Frisk

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

Frisk is the most caring character in Undertale because of the pacifist route

10 Temmie Temmie Temmie is minor character from the 2015 game Undertale made by Toby Fox. Made in the likeness of her artist, Temmie Chang, in appearance and character. Both a character and a species of monster, temmies are defined by their mix of cat and dog features, as well as their broken English. Their hidden village ...read more.

HOW DARE TEMMIE BE SO LOW! ;-; Temmie is obviously the best character in Undertale, people can't disagree with that. #TemIsLoveTemIsLife

It's a cat.

Its cute.

Temmie want to go to college to all of you proud

Temmie need to be first, of course!

The Contenders

11 Chara Chara Chara is from the video game "Undertale" and serves as the unseen narrator in the pacifist, neutral, and genocide routes. They are the evil protagonist in the genocide route, along with Frisk and Flowey. They are unseen in any other route, despite being the narrator. They crash your game when you reply ...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.

Chara is an innocent child who genuinely wants the best for their family. On the pacifist run, Chara will be optimistic. The dog food in Alphys lab, Chara says its half full on pacifist, and half empty on the genocide.
Also.
On the Pacifist run, on the Asriel fight, Asriel thinks you are Chara. And you have spared everyone. Meaning, Asriel could tell (well, he thought he could tell) that you are Chara by your merciful choices.

12 Asriel

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

WHAT!? NOT EVEN IN THE TOP 10!? Dude, He can reset an entire timeline, use swords and blasters, and even destroy the ENTIRE BARRIER and yet you put him only at #13!?

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.

My favorite character in Undertale. I have no idea why, he just is.

14 Gaster 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.

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".

Perhaps it's the mystery that captivates the players.

Gaster is the most cool guy ever he even is like sans but cooler version

16 Muffet Muffet

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

REALLY fun boss fight. When the box started tilting back and forth, it got mind-bending.

I like undertale sans

The cutest and bubbliest sans, the best sans!

I Think he's cute and clever he's also hyper so, Why not like him?

HOI, in my opinion, WHY IS INT HE NEXT TO SANS IN THE TOP 20?! he's so cute, cuddly, and amazing, he is a fan-made character, however. Based off of what regular Sans said... BUT WHY NOT LOVE HIM!? IF YOU DON;T KNOW WHO HE IS, 1. YOUR LIVING UNDER A ROCK. 2. LOOK HIM UP BOY... boi!

His theme is really good for trolling and awesome.
