History WMG / OFF

Go To



The Elsens are based off this boy he used to know who was very anxious and studious. Sugar was an odd, erratic girl. Hugo is depicted as nearly an infant because he hadn’t been born yet when Batter fell comatose. The Queen was, of course, based off his abusive girlfriend and all her competences are things she’s said to him (example, saying “He loves you not” to him after they’ve broken up and knowing Batter wishes to persue a romantic relationship with Zacharie. The Batter’s mission, however, can work one of two ways: First, it could symbolize him still wishing for death, his ending being him dying peacefully in his coma while in the Judge’s he stays alive, but he doesn’t wake. Second, his ending could be turning off the illusion of this world he’d created and waking up to the happy faces of Zacharie and his friends. This would make the Judge’s ending symbolize Batter being too afraid or too depressed to face the outside world again, surrendering his form in the imaginary world in order to stay in his coma, as he feels everyone wishes he’d do.

[[WMG: The Special Ending is not as hopeless as the Judge made it out to be.]]
There is still one Zone left unpurified - Zone 0. The Judge, Zacharie, and Sucre seems to live there, and they can rebuild the world... again. Not to mention there is one Elsen still alive - and possibly more, as there are some parts of the Purified Zones that the Batter can't access.

* Which would explain why Enoch looks so similar to Hugo.


As [[spoiler:Hugo]] describes the promises the guardians gave him in [[spoiler:Chapter 4]], the Batters Add-Ons appear on screen, one for every guardian. While the Queens Add-Ons are in their rightful place in [[spoiler:The Room]], the Batters Add-Ons are located in seemingly random places, as if they were lost or thrown away, symbolising that the guardians repressed their good side. When the Batter fights the guardians with their respective Add-Ons, it symbolises that the guardians subconciously agree, if only a little bit, with the goals of the Batter. When the Batter fights the Queen and her Add-Ons with his own Add-Ons, it symbolises the guardians good sides destroying their bad sides, hence "purifying" them.

[[WMG: The Batter is the boy in the coma.]]
This theory states: the Batter was a teenage boy. His name (purely headcanon) was Michael Casey Battcher, he played baseball, and had some friends. His girlfriend, a woman known as the ‘Queen’ of the school (name: Vader Eloha) was, however, abusive towards him. One night, she drugged and raped him after he refused her too many times, and she conceived a child she claimed she would name Hugo if it were a boy. Soon after this, Batter’s few friends helped him get of the relationship, but the boy had been through a lot in his 17 years; it didn’t help his depression or suicidal thoughts much.
Eventually, he tried to kill himself via overdose. Just before he passed out, however, he realized deep down that he didn’t want to die just yet. He then fell into a coma.

Everyone we meet in the world of OFF is based on someone Batter knew. Pablo and Valerie were a pair of twins who ‘acted like cats’. Japhet was Valerie’s boyfriend, at least he was before he snapped and tried to kill Batter, Valerie, and Pablo one night (nearly succeeding with the last). Zacharie was the boy who made Batter realize he didn’t quite want to die yet; you see, Batter was in love with him. He thought about him all the time, hence why Zacharie seems to be everywhere.

Hugo is depicted as nearly an infant because he hadn’t been born yet when Batter fell comatose.

* Possibly jossed as OFF was released before Undertale.


This is also the reason the song "Somewhere over the rainbow" plays while he moves through the areas with a smile (since we've seen he's capable of closing his mouth). During his HeroicBSOD he also kept meowing for Valerie, despite knowing what happened to him, which leads to believe he's the hopeful sort. He's leaving the now empty lands because he has the hope that, out there, somewhere, a world still exists.

to:

* Alternate possibility: the Elsens (who are human--although the Batter is ''not'') are nonetheless subject to the same laws of subjective battle sprite appearance as the Batter. Just as the Batter never "transformed", the Burnt forms do not actually indicate a transformation; rather, they are how the Batter sees them during the battles. As far as anyone else is concerned, he's beating ordinary (if stressed) humans to death with a baseball bat.



to:

* That could possibly explain why the Elsen can't reproduce. Hugo is a child, so he wouldn't know how it works.

While ''definitely'' not the BigBad (That title belongs to [[KnightTemplar The Batter]] or [[BiggerBad you]]), he does keep supplying you with weapons, defensive equipment and health regenerating items. Even after it's made apparent to him that you will destroy the world and even after you ''[[LackOfEmpathy murder his best friend, spouse or sister figure]]'' (whatever you interpret [[BonusBoss Sugar]] to be to him). While it looks like he's mourning, it doesn't stop him from selling anything that may help you in your quest to "purify" the world.

** Additionally, The Judge has some odd similarities with [[spoiler:Sans]], right down to being the one to (possibly) stop the end of the world.
