Top 10 Ways Sans is the Most Overrated Character In Undertale


The Top Ten

1 He's nowhere near as powerful as the fanbase makes him out to be

They think he can beat Bill Cipher cute huh?

They think he can beat guys like goku,bill cipher,omni king/zeno/the one above all/the living tribunal and practically everyone in fiction.

3 Papyrus was both way funnier and kind of a better character

Papyrus is probably the funniest character, and I think he's better than Sans. - PeachyBlast

4 He is most certainly NOT the best character; that would have to be either Alphys or Mettaton

I like Sans, but I think Undyne and Papyrus are the 2 best in the game. - Garythesnail

Seriously, Asgore and Mettaton are better than Sans. On every Undertale related fansite/wiki/reddit/forum there is 90% Sans and 10% other characters like what

I think I want to learn more about Gaster, and Alphy's reason why she's staring in the abyss before she met Undyne, and how the other colored souls die and how they got into Asgore's hands. Sure, he's interesting, but I find his puns really bad and corny. - Iconspectus

5 WAY too many freaking recolors
6 All of his numerous alternate-universe counterparts, most especially Underswap Sans
7 Skeletons aren't sexy V 1 Comment
8 Involved in so many shippings that it's literally impossible to keep track of all of them
9 Undertale, though an all-time great, is quite easily one of the most overrated games of all time

True definitely, its like a good game with bad bandwagons

10 He isn't freaking Ness, and he probably wouldn't win a fight against Ness either

Heh heh... True. If a little girl Frisk could beat him, Ness could. - XpizzamanXx

The Contenders

11 Sans X Toriel is nothing compared to Alphys X Undyne

A thought of a four foot tall nihilist skeleton that likes jokes and a motherly kind goat that is almost two times taller than the skeleton loving each other makes me RoFl

I do not even think of it as canon, I see Sans and Toriel having a platonic relationship, a friendship, that is. It was never canon in the first place. I see Toriel as a woman who will never love again after THAT incident with Asgore and stay as an independent woman who will watch the days pass by, Sans would only be her friend or either a pun buddy.

Compared to Alphys x Undyne, I don't think Sans Fangirls would be happy if he is shipped with Toriel.

12 His jokes are boring, forced and unfunny, whereas most of the other characters derive their humor from having genuinely entertaining and charming personalities

Aren't his puns supposed to be bad though? - RoleplayerR

13 Contrary to popular belief, he's a bit underdeveloped for the type of character that he is

I was perfectly fine with this list...until here.


Now, Sans' whole persona may be based around his depression, but that one thing he's based around cuts DEEP. Everything about his appearance, his behavior, his dialogue, even his boss fight connects. As one should know, he's the only character that knows about save files and resetting, which is the reason for his feeling of futility and hopelessness. Symptoms of depression include overeating, digestive issues, anxiety, insomnia, sleeping whenever, fatigue, and a desire to hide one's own thoughts.

Sound familiar?

Think about Sans' stagnant face and blue coat. Blue is used to represent sadness, which is a factor in depression. It is speculated that Sans is wearing a mask (that forever smiles) to hide his true emotions. Yet another way, his depression makes him feel like a...zombie...walking through the world.

Let's for a moment talk about ...more - WonkeyDude98

14 He's been Photoshopped into both Shulk AND Zanza from Xenoblade Chronicles

(sighs) Just look at my profile image - xandermartin98

15 People have the nerve to ship him in a passionately sexual manner with his own brother

Reminds me of people who ship three certain people from Unova. *shudders* - RiverClanRocks

Oh my god, they are brothers, BROTHERS!

Meh, it's nowhere NEAR as bad as, say, shipping Alphys with the Amalgamates (pauses to go and drink the brain bleach) - xandermartin98

Let's not forget countless AU "fontcest" that has glowing, color-based dicks and vaginas. - Iconspectus

16 He isn't even the actual final boss of the Genocide Run
17 He's the most requested Undertale character for Smash...over Mettaton, Frisk, Papyrus and Alphys

Why would they put Undertale in Smash Bros? They have nothing to do with each other. - RiverClanRocks

18 Also gets foot-fetish art while Alphys doesn't

I don't see how Alphys not geeting foot-fetish "art" is a bad thing.

Well, just take a good look at Alphys' character design and tell me why she WOULDN'T have foot fetish art (spoilers: she does) - xandermartin98

19 His Genocide battle isn't really all that hard, and the Pacifist final battle was honestly better
20 Papyrus, Mettaton, Temmie and especially Alphys are all far cuter

Alphys' is such a precious, awkward bean. More better than a talking skeleton who does nothing but laze around and drink ketchup as if it were a normal drink. - Iconspectus
