While on the one hand, the humans defeated the monsters and banished them to the underground or what they call the “ruins.” The humans stayed on the overworld but every now and then a human fall into the underground. So, now you have to take over the role of one of the humans that fall into the underground. This is the main story of the game. The character design is incredibly unique. Not only that but the interaction with those characters is so great and you get a lot of funny dialogues.
That’s it. if you are new to this game or you haven’t reached to the next few levels then we don’t want to give any spoiler of the gameplay. But knowing some unknown fun and mysterious Undertale is always a good thing. So, in this article, we are going to be going over 10 facts that you didn’t know about Undertale. You may know some of these things but if you finish the article having learned at least one new thing then we will be happy.
1 – Sans’ Boss Battle Theme Music
The theme that plays during Sans’ boss battle, Megalovania, is not actually unique to Undertale. It is a recurring theme that has appeared several times in Undertale’s creator Toby Fox’s other works. The first of which being his EarthBound Halloween Hack and the second being Homestuck. Undertale’s version of it is definitely our favorite though.
2 – Entering Different Names
In the name entry screen, it is impossible to proceed after entering the names of any of the main characters. Entering these names will display a special message and return you back to the name entry screen. For example, entering the name Flowey gives you the message “I already chose that name,” Undyne says “get your own name,” and Sans says simply “nope.”
3 – Undertale in Hard Mode
Speaking of the name screen, if you input the name Frisk then, you will be able to play Undertale in hard mode. Don’t get confused so, Frisk is the name of the character control to Undertale but Frisk is not the character that you are naming at the beginning of the game. Undertale hard mode only lasts until Toriel’s boss fight. There are a few notable differences though. Harder monster battles only being able to take three counties instead of four and Toriel’s death being interrupted by the annoying dog. Pretty interesting though.
4 – Secrete Behind the Name of AsgoreDreemurr
The name of the Underground’s king “AsgoreDreemurr” is an anagram. The letters in his name can be rearranged to spell out “sage or murderer.” The definition of sage being “a profoundly wise man” and the murderer is probably referencing the fact that Asgore killed six humans in order to acquire their souls.
5 – Mad Undyne
During the first stage of Undyne’s fight if you repeatedly fail to block her attacks then, she gets really mad and says a bunch of funny stuff like “I’m not your freaking kindergarten teacher.”
6 – Tem Shop
In the Tem Shop, there is an option labeled “tem pay 4colleg” for a pretty sweet price. However, if you actually decide to do this then, you will unlock an item named “Temy ARMOR!!!” It is an item that makes the game’s come back completely broken by increasing your defensive significant amount among other beneficial effects. The things you can do with a college education.
7 – What If You Try to Hack the Undertale
If the player hacks the game then there is a special ending. It initially appears to be an error handling message until sounds address the player as “a dirty hacker.”
8 – Thundersnail in Undertale
In absolute snail farm, there is a minigame named “Thundersnail,” which allows you to raise snails. The outcome of the raise depends on how much you encourage your snail. Encouraging the snail too much will make it feel under pressure and it will burst into flames. The funny thing is that this is very likely a reference to a SpongeBob SquarePants episode “The Great Snail Race” where the exact same thing happens with SpongeBob snail Gary.
9 – Toby Fox’s Easter Eggs
During Mettaton’s boss fight if you enter the word Toby into the essay, referring to the game’s creator to Toby Fox, Mettaton will reply with “Toby, what the hell is that sounds… sexy.
10 – How Undertale Created
Undertale is created as a result of an extremely successful Kickstarter campaign. The original goal was $5,000 but the campaign must raise $51,124 by 2,398. This was actually referenced in detail as well.
