Added DiffLines:

* You can meet a snowman, who wants to see the surface, but cannot move. You can obtain a piece of the snowman, and if you [[VideoGameCaringPotential carry it to the surface]], Sans will remark that "you made a snowman really happy."

Added DiffLines:

*** Furthermore, when asked what kind of gift he would like for Christmas, Flowey states that he's too grown-up to want presents. He then goes on to give the specific example of "a red bike with a golden basket" as a gift that would be useless to him, with a coy smile.


** This is even more heartwarming if you consider the alternative. On a No Mercy run, examining the mirror instead results in, "It's me, (character name)." - indicating how Frisk is being taken over by the Fallen Child. But if you reach New Home as a pacifist, then in spite of everything, you're still you.

*** Also at the very end of the date Undyne says she'll help Alphys believe in herself again. Alphys thinks this means Undyne will train her herself but Undyne gets Papyrus to do it instead. Undyne plays it cool but she not only recruits her best friend but the one person she knows never doubts themselves or anyone else. She probably knew Papyrus would be better at it then her. And it's sweet that Papyrus happily agrees. Giving Alphys a whole load of people who believe in her.


** The reason why Undyne was so hell-bent on killing Frisk and taking their soul counts too. Undyne truly cares about all her friends along with all of monster kind, so of course she would be DETERMINED to capture the piece needed for everyone to finally break free from the underground.

*** Once you know the deal with Alphys and Mettaton (that they're working together to make Alphys look better), it's actually really sweet to see the lengths Mettaton goes to to keep the show going -- even if part of it was to play to his ego, he was willing to play the bad guy so Alphys could be the hero. On another note, Alphys's genuine distress when she sees Mettaton all beaten up, and her relief at seeing he's still alive, can give fuzzy feelings to anyone's heart. Though their relationship may be strained, it's touching to see how much Alphys values Mettaton's friendship. In the face of her other experiments, it is important to note that Mettaton is an experiment of hers that actually ended well and what this must mean to her.

Added DiffLines:

*** Like Undyne, Mettaton trying to kill the character might leave a bad taste in anyone's mouth, but the reason why he is determined to do so is opposite to Undyne's but still has a valid point: he doesn't want to endanger his own people for an impending war that they will surely lose.


* Worth noting is that, the worse of a person you are to Monster Kid, the more heroic of a character Undyne is revealed to be. If you run off-screen when they fall from the bridge, you hear dialogue from the next room of Undyne saving Monster Kid, who insists that you were probably just running to get help. If you're able to muster the coldness to just stand and let Monster Kid fall, you get a rather awe-inspiring moment where Undyne stops in shock, then ''leaps down from the bridge to save them''. Not only does she manage get to them in time, she then continues onward to fight you anyways, despite being injured from the fall. If you are playing on a [[AxCrazy Genocide Route]], Undyne saves the Monster Kid by [[HeroicSacrifice leaping in front of him]] and [[TakingTheBullet using her own body to shield him]] from your lethal blow.
** On a Pacifist route after befriending Undyne, if you call her while at this location she'll reveal that, despite how dead set she was on killing you during the chase, at that moment, the only thing she was thinking of was how to save Monster Kid, and was worried you'd attack them while she was vulnerable.
** Inversely, if you're good person to Monster Kid, and rescue them when Undyne is right in front of you, Monster Kid will stand up against Undyne to protect you, causing her to back away and they decide to be your friend instead of enemy.
* Monster Kid themselves is a very heartwarming character. During a bit of the Waterfall segment, they're always by your side, being friendly to you and they even helps you progress in the game by helping you get up a ledge. As annoying as some players can find them to be, they are still an adorable character.

Added DiffLines:

*** Sans, in turn, is proud of his brother for putting so much effort into celebrating with his friends.

Added DiffLines:

* [[https://undertale.com/alarmclock/ The "Winter" dialogue]] from the currently delayed Undertale alarm clock app reveals more lore during the cast's time on the holidays.
** Papyrus held a Christmas party with his own... unique flair. While it got rowdy near the end, many of the characters came to appreciate the time they spent there.
*** Papyrus observed his brother sleeping on the couch by the end of the night, and tucked him in, despite Sans usually being the one to take care of his brother. Papyrus believes that, even if he never said it aloud, Sans must have been [[TheAntiNihilist very happy to be able to celebrate the holidays with so many friends]], and he can't even remember the [[StoicWoobie last time he could see his brother so happy]].
*** Alphys enjoyed her time at the party with Undyne, singing karaoke and admiring how she looked with the Mew-Mew Earmuffs that she gave her.
*** Mettaton confronted Mad Mew Mew over concern over Napstablook, which unfortunately [[AlcoholInducedIdiocy escalated into a fight]] when they took too much "[[FrothyMugsOfWater ghost juice]]". When things settled down, Mettaton and Mew Mew looked on towards Undyne and Alphys, glad that they had each other and were happy together.
** Flowey remembers staying in the Ruins, watching Toriel live alone. His sadistic nature had led to him looking down on her for how she had fallen, but while falling asleep on the floor, she touched Flowey's face and said:
--->'''Toriel''': Asriel... I'll never let you go again...
*** Toriel recalls knowing ''someone'' that would fill their glass all the way to the brim, being "the most efficient way to fill it", which Asriel would then mimic (and spill about). When she woke up from the floor of the Ruins, she found a glass just like that. Passed out after she got too rowdy at the Christmas carol karaoke, she once again woke up to a glass filled to the brim with water.
** After Undyne's hockey game, Toriel served everyone a thermos of alphabet soup.
** Asgore further recounts his friend Rudy, following him from his youth to college and his twilight years, before he eventually "fell down." His favorite memories would include how they reenacted Santa and his reindeer, giving gifts to others in Snowdin. He laments that he was unable to show him the sun when the barrier was finally broken, but is glad to see that his daughters will get to grow up in their now hopeful world.
** Everyone gathers at a massive super-tree they've set up, passing around warm soup and preparing to sing carols. They're all just so glad to be celebrating a wonderful winter... [[spoiler:[[Funny/{{Undertale}} even if the Christmas spirit is a bit unfitting for]] [[ChristmasInJuly September]].]]


* On the path to a No Mercy ending, Papyrus won't even try to fight you -- instead he'll Spare you right off the bat, because he thinks you have the capacity to be a better person. If you actually take him up on this, he'll be so pleased that he lets you go without a second thought.


* If you call Undyne and Papyrus when entering the CORE, they will tell you that since the phone won't work past that point, they will stay with you in spirit, and they won't say goodbye just yet. Also doubles as a [[SugarWiki/TearJerker Tear Jerker]].
