Frisk can't understand the monsters' language and Chara translates for them.


MasterMoes1

If that's the case, how can monsters understand the dialog choices we make?


Speedwagon-Fan

They don't (for example, froggit doesn't) Also, it could be that the language evolved due to the culture transmitted to the monsters trough the garbage dump, so most of the stuff Frisk could understand, but ancient runes could be translated by chara. This theory also serves as an explanation for the why Frisk can understand Froggits, but not speak their language.


MasterMoes1

But if Chara is doing the translating, and Chara is a part of Frisk, the Frisk is the one doing the translating.


Official-Geek_Dragam

In a certain perspective, it’s just Frisk’s soul translating. It’s like when you’re naturally talented at something, but have no idea how you did it

No no the knight is Raisei, hornet is the knight, ness is sans, Susie is a mutated raptor from Jurrasic park, and Kris is Five Pebbles from Rain World, he just reincarnated from a pissed-off cancer-ridden supercomputer to a kid.

What about RainRune (Rain World x Deltarune)

Idk about you but the deeply carved claustrophobia of Rain World's cycles, combined with giant superstructures, bioengineered horrors, and drowned remains of ancient civilizations would be cool to see with a deltarune au.

Undertale is a game


joe_knuckle

Undertale is one of the games of all time


GOLDOWEEDO

I loved it when Sans said “It’s Undertalin’ time!” And Undertale’d all over Frisk


ULTRABOYO

I liked it even more when he said "It's bad time time" and dunked on 'em.


Square_Independent_9

Undertale is an experience


StormNext5301

I was gonna say that


EtruscaTheSeedrian

Rouxls Kaard is Gaster


MasterMoes1

If Gaster worked as the first royal scientist, that means Rouxls would have to have gone into the light world. We all know he can't do that. This means Rouxls can't even be PRETENDING to be a darker. Besides, Rouxls is too busy making puzzles to be Asgore's royal scientist!


arandomshitposter69

Also he turns to stone in chapter 2


Snas_Undertalea

Sans doesn’t have one health we just did 999999 damage Edit: Why does this have so many upvotes


MasterMoes1

True, I don't know why people think he's got 1 hp. Even though we can do more damage to a monster regardless if its more than they currently have, Sans might just be a lucky monster. It's like Jerry, who was randomly gifted with high defense stats. In the pacifist route, when Flowey wraps everyone up in his vine, everyone starts taking damage (indicated by the hurt sound effects). Something like that would have killed Sans if he only had 1 hp, especially since Sans has 1 defense against a godlike murderous flower.


LastYear5

I remember seeing a theory that sans just has massive overheal because he sleeps all the time


Etheris1

It would make sense


International-Win-59

Check says 1 attack and 1 defense. Does not mention hp.


1zeas

I think people looked in the files for his hp


Snas_Undertalea

My opinion was just too good to deny hehehehaw


AnalystSuccessful183

Looks like you lost this one 😂


Z4rrow

i'm pretty sure that all of his stats are literally set to 1 in the files...


XandTheIronMiner

That's how much we did. Not Sans' health. He did literally due. But, it's VERY impressive that he could live for a little bit after that.


UltraXfinity567

Frisk was running away from something


MasterMoes1

It may have been curiosity. Mt. Ebott makes a great tourist attraction, assuming it's from the one in Colorado, USA.


YouAreMicroscopic

You’re good at this


Master_Isabelle

Their taxes


solarmastet

I really like this theroy but I just believe frisk is a curious human in general that's why they didn't in the pacifist route they didn't kill all the monsters cuz they were curious about them


Tradcon12

Flowey didn't lose his empathy because of losing his soul. He stopped feeling empathy because of severe trauma.


MasterMoes1

It was due to the lack of a soul. If it were truly trauma, Flowey would have isolated himself from his family. But no, he knew that compassion and understanding were feelings he has felt before, as stated in the genocide route. Flowey was never mad at this family or friends. He just saw them as mere toys in a way. If Flowey was experiencing mental trauma, he wouldn't want the old days back, but yet he tries. The true lab also explains how the experiment with the flower resulted in a merciless being. We don't know too much about that, but to me, Flowey's issue sounds very scientific.


Tradcon12

People react to trauma In vastly different ways especially children. He is clearly upset about toriel trying to replace him by adopting human children. He talks into an echo flower about how toriel will find a new kid and forget all about frisk. He appears to genuinely like papyrus. I don't see how losing his empathy would make him forget about it. Alot of traumatized people want things to go back to how they used to be. Flowey did isolate himself from his family. The true lab doesn't say anything about a merciless being. And according to the alarm clock dialogue in the current timeline the very same one where he did his whole omega flowey thing he found toriel collapsed in the ruins do to lack of self care brought her home and gave her water. And after returning to the surface he too care of her when she passed at drunk in the garage. Also he clearly still cares about chara.


marijjuani

Flowey said himself “I tried my hardest to feel something for dad, but I couldn’t” he’s literally soulless and incapable. The reason he looks at everything as kill or be killed is explained when Asriel tells frisk after their battle When was she drunk in the garage


Tradcon12

https://undertale.com/alarmclock/ being traumatized and angry at asgore is also just as plausible as not having a soul. I don't see how asriel dying because he refused to fight back and thinking that the only way to survive is to kill others is related.


marijjuani

You’re right. The only reason Flowey killed anybody was because he wanted to see what would happen, and dissassociated himself from everything having the reset power The battle I’m talking about is between frisk and Asriel. He tried really hard to love Asgore but couldn’t


hussiesucks

Perhaps it was actually from the shock of DYING and BEING BROUGHT BACK AS A FLOWER.


ghostly_sans

Or you could’ve said that the librarby states that souls are made of love and compassion.


hussiesucks

Only monster souls.


Potion_addict

Opinion: Papyrus is the coolest skelebro.


MasterMoes1

Sans is way cooler. He's got better skills, the drippy slippers, and he receives more mail than Papyrus. Sorry paps...

No, Papyrus actually checks his mail and that's why it looks like he has less

UndertaleFreak23

Not opinion. The truth. Sans is WAY to overrated


Z4rrow

he's not THAT overrated imo... i think he's the most interesting character by far.


Extension-Ad-1683

He's brought into more attention because he can remember the resets in small ways (and that he might know about gaster). Lots of other characters can remember the resets too, but it feels like Deja vu to them. I like sans as a character, but he has too much of the spotlight I feel. Let him share it with his brother


ButthoIeTickler

he can't remember resets, that's fanon snas


XandTheIronMiner

Overrated doesn't actually exist.


Vulpes_macrotis

Hating something, because it's popular is the same wrong as loving something because it's popular. It's the same thing, just from th other side. If You say Sans is bad, because he's popular You are the same as those who blindly say Sans is the best.


Brawlfan6

Sans didn’t buy his and Pap’s house, he put it on his tab


MasterMoes1

Sans sold enough hot dogs to buy it, but then proceeded to use Papyrus's savings because why not...


Brawlfan6

Lol he was to lazy to go into his own bank account


advie_advocado

When you hug asriel, he's very soft and warm and fluffy. If you were smol enough maybe you could even accidentally fall asleep bc it's so comfortable


MasterMoes1

Not if he has dust all over him. When's the last time he took a bath anyways?


TOPSIturvy

As long as he was able to maintain his Asriel form he had at least some of the power of the 6 souls fused into himself. This also includes the green soul. And as we all know, green means clean.


Captain-Sass

No, asriel is just fleshy and pale

GlydeOut

The whole game is a dream frisk had


MasterMoes1

If this were the case, Deltarune wouldn't exist. If Undertale was a dream, the world of Deltarune would also be. This is because if all the Undertale characters were from a dream, they could only exist within the world of a dream (cause they aren't real in this scenario). If both games were dreams, that would mean Frisk would of had to have two very similar dreams including consistent characters, multiple experiences via timelines, and precise rules with lore only we, the player, could gather up all at once. The odds of this are more unrealistic than the actual world of Undertale, so I think it's safe to say Undertale was a real experience, even if Frisk dreamed it all in the world of Undertale we understand today.


FaCe_CrazyKid05

Wait you haven’t had reoccurring dreams that get progressively different over time?


bensbrackets

The red soul is determination


MasterMoes1

Seeing as how each armor piece and weapon is found in frustrating or difficult parts of the game, the humans likely just gave up but still had the option to use determination for resurrection. Additionally, in the Omega Flowey fight, Flowey gains the ability to save and load through the souls, and saving and loading requires determination. Therefore, all human souls have determination.


Matthewyoshi

The eggs in the dark world is just Temmie’s egg as she was probably in the school closet and she was also at the library.


MasterMoes1

Temmie has a special voice sound effect, but the egg giver had the normal monster voice

You're right, but you're not

The mouse will never get a chance to eat the cheese.

Swagboi7

Undyne doesn’t have a scar or anything, she just wears the eyepatch to look cool


MasterMoes1

When Undyne turns into her Undying form, her covered eye turns out to be hollow and different compared to her other eye.


BugBoy_760

That would be funny if it were true though. I can definitely see her doing that as a kid lol.


Jason_llirmwl

alphys likes undyne


MasterMoes1

You know how Alphys likes to fit in? Due to her knowledge of life originating from anime as a source, romance is a common theme in anime. That romance can include lesbianism. I believe Alphys is simply desiring to mimick what she believes to be human culture. Alphys doesn't love Undyne, Alphys is just trying to act "normal" in front of the human.


Cerulean-Hornet

Why are you actually convincing me a bit?


Urbancenturian

Sans games on the SNES just for the pun


MasterMoes1

There are no plug-in consoles seen anywhere in his house.

There are more moments with Sans than with Omega Flowey. Therefore Toby likes sans more. Also Sans is in Smash Bros but Flowey isn't...

KadeWad3

Sans is overated. (Grabs shield) Hit me. Jk, but still say why I’m wrong!


MasterMoes1

He deserves all the praise. The impact Undertale made on people's perspectives of video games was greatly supported by Sans popularity. Even the characters in-game love him. Just like Flowey, Sans sticks in our heads for many reasons. He's funny, mysterious, and has a banger boss theme. A lot of people likely learned something about themselves due to Sans clever dialog. Personally, I like him because, the first time I played Undertale, I genuinely enjoyed Sans even after being tired of all the memes. Sans is a once in a lifetime character; his legacy as a video game character deserves even more praise.


CaptainShart69420

Mettaton isn't gay, he's just flamboyant


Memory_seer

Gaster was Sans's boss, not his Dad, and that the skeletons came from another world.


Tuxedo-Terrorist

Red soul isn’t human soul because it breaks immediately after death


MasterMoes1

It has the ability to last, but maybe Frisk just wants to give. But once we force Frisk to go back to the last save point, their soul returns. In the pacifist route final battle, the soul doesn't break but instead cracks, so we can assume either Frisk or the soul on its own decides whether or not it lasts.


Prof-Random

Opinion: flowey is the best character Theory: SANS IS NESS!?.!?111!?!1.?!

Overall_Sink_3382

Undertale in itself is a Litmus test within a genuinely fun experience.


Natural-meme

Temmie are all girls (except bob)


MasterMoes1

There has to be at least one male out there, else how would produce? I imagine it's like a Legend of Zelda Gerudo situation.


HellHeater

main character of undertale is frisk


MasterMoes1

You could say Asriel is the main character since the game revolves around him. The game is called Undertale because of the tale underground, and Asriel has been a part of the underground longer than Frisk has. Since Frisk can be both good and evil, Asriel can be too depending on the route you take. After so much "gameplay" Asriel has experienced, Frisk is just his final boss!


Radioactive_monke

Papyrus is good at cooking


hypertypertox

Hmm. The player isn't in the canon universe.


MasterMoes1

The player has got to be. Flowey and Chara both make some interesting fourth wall breaks, like when Flowey tells YOU to let FRISK live their life. Even if Flowey is talking to the soul, I believe that you are a third entity controlling the soul. Rather than playing as the soul, perhaps the player is Frisk's determination? Or, who knows, Gaster could represent the player or something. Besides, multiple characters talk about things like the controls and the UI, mostly Flowey and, well, the Toby dog. Let's not forget that Asriel says "this all just a game" and how you're the one playing it with him. What's a game without a player?


hypertypertox

Hm so, the entire Undertale universe is a game?


MasterMoes1

Precisely


hypertypertox

Interesting theory, then!


NeoNexus285

Undertale is the game of all time


Mewthew-Ichigo

Ralsei is peak goat boy


MasterMoes1

Asriel surpasses him according to the Undertale subreddit.


kiddy_BOI

Undertale is a videogame that can be played


MasterMoes1

It's not a video game, it's a personal social experiment that just so happens to be fun.


Popcorn57252

I think Frisk is a human


MasterMoes1

Then how come their soul doesn't remain intact after death? Sounds like a monster to me.


Snoring-Kat

Toriel is actually a bad person


GolemPlz

Sans absorbed the human souls before the genocide fight


Nanny_Sucker42069

Chara was the first human to fall into the underground (good luck wth that)


Random_Dude_0nReddit

Jerry sucks.


MasterMoes1

No, Jerry is great. First of all, he doesn't attack you, meaning he doesn't attempt to commit the sin of murder, even if it means missing a chance to earn himself an all powerful human Soul. It's like the same generosity as Papyrus. You don't see mercy from many other monsters living in the Snowdin forests. Jerry is also kind of funny. Not only does he not hurt you, but if you try to ditch the other monsters, he leaves you alone whilst pulling a prank on the other monsters. He's just here to hang around, whether you give him mercy or not. Jerry truly is the greatest, isn't he?


UndertaleFreak23

I hate Jerry. He’s awkward and ugly


[deleted]

I don't like Jerry. He's coarse and rough and irritating — and he gets everywhere.


UnnamedSpace

Frisk's gender is undetermined; they never bothered to mention it. Chara is probably nonbinary, as Asriel refers to them by they/them and Chara lived underground for a good while, so Chara probably at least told Asriel about their gender.


MasterMoes1

Some already did this one...


Chunky_doggo1

What if frisks eyes are red BECAUSE of the soul (the player) and not chara?


basedposter6934

The blush.


PeysPlayz

Or they could just be naturally red, we never see the color until that one scene

Square_Independent_9

Gaster will not be the final boss of deltarune


MasterMoes1

I feel he will. Lots of songs in Deltarune, like Chaos King, have the Gaster notes thrown into it. In entry 17, Gaster mentions "negative photon readings" which may be dark fountains. In the Undertale files, Gaster has incredibly strong stats for his unused battle data, which would fit perfectly for an overpowered final boss, maybe for the ending of the Snowgrave route rather than the main route.


weedmaster6669

Asgore isn't much of a bad person at all, a couple lives for the freedom of an entire nation, an entire race? I could understand any good leader making that choice


BONBON-GO-GET-EM

It's $14.99


KittencatBAKA

Wow your theory skills are beyond what I thought they where…


cdoyl87

Sans is a skeleton. Evidence: he said so


MasterMoes1

That could be a lie. Seeing as how Sans is so powerful even with only one attack and one defense, perhaps he's just a LV 1 human, just as Frisk once was. What's also strange is how Sans can eat at Grillby's yet Papyrus has never eaten anything in his life. We've never actually seen beneath San's sweatshirt, shorts, or shoes. Sans also bleeds. With the human theory in mind, it makes sense why Sans is so strong. Humans are the strongest beings alive, creating an equal battle between Frisk and Sans. Did I mention how we never see what happens to Sans when he died off screen?


Littleweirdone630

HELP WHY AM I ACTUALLY BELIVING THIS-


sdantaray

And from this I conclude that sans is Ness

AlanTheGuy345

depending on how you look at his overworld sprite we may have. i used to always see those lines as a ribcage but


ghostly_sans

I bleed because I’m a skeleton. Blood cells are made in the bones and they have red marrow as well. Did you not know that about bones?

Ey, get the fuck away, imposter!


ghostly_sans

But I’m the real Sans


rslashdeeznuts

No, I'm the real sans!

We must be different AUs! I am from an alternate universe where you died because of a creeper explosion. At least I can finally try the ghost sandwich!

I'm sans from the au where the monsters and story of undertale don't exist, I am also always in your moms bedroom


rslashdeeznuts

Oh. Did you get your stuff, or did the creeper steal it and run


ghostly_sans

It’ll be a while before I can touch physical things. Because monsters don’t respawn. And I’m not even from Minecraft.


DustyMightMeme

You can hear the dust sound effect after he walks away tho


BattlePenguin58

That sound plays whether you killed or spared a monster.

My theory is that sans jacket is filled with the condiments he drinks which is why he looks fat and bleeds
