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

The fanbase just thinks he just shoots blasters everywhere and can kill anything with one blow. It gets me so dang annoyed.

They think he can beat Bill Cipher cute huh?

Mrs. Sans for example

So true - DWisawesomethe3rd

2 The memes; oh, the memes, memes, memes, memes, MEMES

"fangirls" huh? what about all the 14 year old boys I've come across that worship?

Everything the fangirls say about Sans: Bad time, bad time, and bad time.

Sans has more lines than "bad time" God damnit fangirls.

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

If you ask me, papyrus was probably the main character in Snowdin


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

Mettaton isn't as good as aylphs though.

I liek mettaton much moar than sans

5 WAY too many freaking recolors

And bad ocs.

Sans OCs are overrated.It's always a Sans Base.

6 All of his numerous alternate-universe counterparts, most especially Underswap Sans

Error Sans, Gaster Sans, Underfell Sans, and the stupidest thing I ever heard... Sansy Fresh. I even seen someone make a Tori Sans. And in 600 years, Jerry Sans.

So tru

I remember when I was a new undertale fan, I saw a comic dub of PJ's daycare or something and I had absolutely no idea what was going on. All I saw was a bunch of crappy recolours talking to each other and frolicking around like little babies.

Sans has so many fanbases! (Among other characters)
Here are the ones I know so far.
GasterBlaster AU
Help_tale (reluctantly)
Axetale (Horrortale spinoff)
Undertail (VERY reluctantly)

7 Skeletons aren't sexy

Tell that to people with necrophilia

Sans is suck. only stupid peoples find fat skeleton sexy, he dress like a lazy people. And short. Haha. Papyrus is best!

How is he attractive? he is just a skeleton.

8 Involved in so many shippings that it's literally impossible to keep track of all of them

Soriel especially. SORIEL IS A SIXTY YEAR OLD GOAT DATING AN EIGHTEEN YEAR OLD SKELETON. At the very most they're friends. People think oh hey they're friends now they're automatically attracted to each other. Sans x anyone is dumb. Sans can't have a kind of relationship that requires work. He is too justified for tori, who prefers to listen to her heart. Somehow he's being shipped with his brother?! WTFUDGE?! Honestly he's a good character nice guy but people overrate him. not to mention the large amounts of ocs like SHES HIS girlfriend BUT LIKE WAY MORE POWERFUL SHE doesn't LIKE FRISK OR TORI BECAUSE SHE THINKS THEYLL STEAL HIM FROM HER LIKE SHE MET SANS AND IT WAS LOVE. I hate those Mary Sues and any sans ship is horrible.

9 Undertale, though an all-time great, is quite easily one of the most overrated games of all time

I like many enjoy the game, but I can admit that the game has become overrated.

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.


+ Alphyne is definitely the best ship...

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

I kinda like his puns but ok lol

13 He isn't even the actual final boss of the Genocide Run

True! After him there is Asgore,Flowey and Chara.

14 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!


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

15 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

When the most important things established about Sans are his powers and not his personality, you know he is underdeveloped

16 Undyne's Genocide fight was a bit harder in some ways

AGREED. Undyne is so much harder with those bullet hell attacks. Sans is hard, but not as difficult as Undyne.

I managed to no hot undyne the undying she is super easy but sans._. The most I could no hit was 2 attacks after he got tired

Sans is waay easier than undyne

17 He's the most requested Undertale character for Smash...over Mettaton, Frisk, Papyrus and Alphys

Sans isn't even the star of Undertale. Plus, Toby doesn't want his game on a Nintendo device anyway.

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

I'd rather have Frisk as a starter...and Flowey and Sans as unlockables if possible. Many people only want Sans as starter. And anyone else is unlockable. - SoaPuffball

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

I hate foot fetishism

it is similar and easily paired with tickling.

i hate it into the next dimension.

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
