Before reading, please beware that this page contains Undertale spoilers, and that Undertale itself is a very spoiler-sensitive game. Read with care

This page is currently being used for recaps by UTU players/viewers. It is being updated as it progresses.

Frisk: Can't we find you a new soul?!
Chara: Nope! I like this one! I'm moving in!
Frisk: But that's not fair.
Chara: Deal with it, Squinty!

Papyrus: H-Hi, Undyne! I'm here with my daily report.
Undyne: What is it, Papyrus? You disturbed me from playing Love Live! again!

Undertale is famous for its wide variety of character interactions, its tons of puns, and its Multiple Endings. But what if the were a way to add more interactions? What if the in-game dialogue doesn't stick to the in-game dialogue? What if you could change the motivations and behaviors of any character, but keep the same game going?

  • Want Narrator Chara to cooperatively work with Frisk?
  • Want a Genocide Chara to take control of the Fight function after a countdown timer?
  • Want Sans to deliver even more puns?
  • Want Frisk to have a solid backstory?
  • Want to interact with every single monster?

All of these are possible.

This is Undertale ULTRA: a hybrid Let's Play and Roleplay project by various members of the Touhou Project community: developed by Spaztique, co-developed ChibiOChen, playtested by MikiBandy, MiniWitch3, SethB1, and Ceej39, and roleplayed by various members of the Walfas Station Wagon.

Every playthrough, a blind player is selected to play as Frisk. They will have to give them an all original backstory, character motivation, and personality, which will then determine what kind of game mode will be played: who's in control? Who's good or evil? Which route will they take? Anything can happen, resulting in a new Undertale story every time...

Undertale ULTRA (Summer '16 Edition) provides examples of...

  • Actual Pacifist: Frisk. He absolutely refuses to fight for a good portion of the story. When he reaches Asgore, he's forced to fight reluctantly.
    • Technical Pacifist: The only times Frisk ever fought, with Toriel, Asgore, and Flowey, was with the goal to weaken his opponents.
  • Adaptation Expansion: On Frisk and Chara, but also on the rest of the cast.
  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: In the original Undertale, Chara remained in the background as the game's narrator at most and as the game's stats at least. Here, Chara can feel again thanks to Frisk's soul, but this also allows Chara to feel deep regret over Asriel's death, the ruination of the Underground, and fearing Frisk will hate her if he figures out what she's done.
  • All-Loving Hero: Frisk.
  • All Women Are Lustful: The Snowdin Shoperkeeper.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Averted. Frisk is a boy and Chara is a girl... and Frisk is voiced by a girl while Chara is voiced by a guy.
  • The Atoner: By the end of the Neutral run, Chara tells Frisk she believes the reason she was brought back to was to end the problems she caused, saving mankind and monsterkind from those who threaten the timeline.
  • Big Brother Worship: Chara to Asriel.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Stream 7, the Neutral Ending. Frisk successfully escapes the Underground and Chara believes the timeline is finally safe, but Asgore is dead, the monsters will never go free, and the phone Toriel gave Frisk is out of batteries.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Sans, regularly.
  • Catchphrase: Frisk's "Onward an Myonward!"
  • Chaste Hero: Frisk. Chara regularly makes dirty jokes that fly over his head.
  • Corpsing: The characters' lines are frequently followed by audible snickering.
  • The Cynic: Chara, who only cares about keeping Frisk alive to keep their soul (initially, at least). When Frisk proposes the idea of sparing Flowey early on, Chara rants that there are some exceptions to mercy, and downright begs Frisk to kill Flowey after their battle.
    • During the Neutral Ending, Frisk believes he can go back to find a way to save Asgore and free all monsters, but Chara tells Frisk that doing that is what got her killed and led to the death of her brother and father.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Chara implies this whenever Frisk brings up how Chara lost their soul.
    • Stream 6 points at Chara losing her brother after she died, but Asgore hints there may be something more going on...
  • Dancing Theme: Stream-only, the ending ends on a dance number between Frisk and Chara set to Drop Pop Candy.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: At the end of the ruins, Flowey implies to Frisk that Chara has a dark secret in her past that led to Flowey's creation. Frisk finds out about that dark past when he reaches New Home: Chara feels responsible for the death of her brother and the ruination of the Underground.
  • Dark Secret: Flowey apparently knows of something Chara did, greatly angering her at the mention of it...
    Flowey: Try as you might, Chara... you can't stop what already happened...
    • In Stream 6, just as it seems Frisk has figured out Chara's dark past, that she had gotten sick and led to the death of her brother and the beginning of Asgore's plan to destroy humanity, Asgore hints there's more to Chara's story than the monsters told him...
    • In Stream 8, Frisk finally learns Chara was the one who made Asriel go to the surface. He's stunned at first, but still as determined as ever to set things right.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Chara, who acts as the narrator, and isn't limited to the in-game text. For example...
    • During the tutorial opening...
    Frisk: Move left.
    *Frisk slams into a wall to his immediate left.*
    Chara: You hit a wall. Congratulations! You now know how to move left!
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Chara
  • Determinator: Frisk.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulu: Frisk isn't afraid of taunting Undyne, Mettaton, or even Asriel.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: From Stream 6, Frisk and Chara playing "cave explorer" in the MTT Resort hotel room.
    MiniWitch3: #FriskXChara
    Chara: Hey! It's the only time in this game I can get frisky with Frisk!
  • Dramatic Irony: Chara' hatred towards Flowey is played for this.
  • The Dreaded: Undyne. Chara warns Frisk that she is much worse than the rest of the Royal Guard, and when she finally shows up, she sends both Frisk and Chara running for their lives.
  • Explosive Overclocking: According to Naptstablook, somebody encouraged their snail during Thundersnail so much that it caught on fire.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Frisk.
    Chara: Have you ever had snail pie, Squinty?
    Frisk: Not as a pie, but I've had snails, I've had earthworms, I've had dirt...
    Chara: I can understand the snails, but not the earthworms and the dirt.
    Frisk: ... We didn't have a lot of food.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Frisk and Chara. Frisk starts off mistrustful of Chara, and Chara regularly teases the naive Frisk, but by the time they get to the Core, the two become close friends.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Chara loves Undyne, even if Undyne is going to hunt Frisk down.
  • Hurricane of Puns: Sans, somehow even more so than in the original Undertale.
  • I Choose to Stay: In the Pacifist Ending, Chara chooses to stay behind with Asriel.
  • The Idealist: Frisk. It's in his nature to spare everyone, never to fight. It takes some convincing from Chara to fight Toriel a little, but he changes his mind and spares her.
    • During the Neutral Finale, Frisk plays this to a T, believing Flowey can still be redeemed, if at least punished, despite all of Chara's protests.
    • Weaponized in the finale with Asriel: Frisk is so determined to get a happy ending that it's the only thing keeping the universe together.
  • I Let Asriel Die
  • Insult of Endearment: Chara calling Frisk "Squinty."
    • As of Stream 4, it seems the rest of the monsters have adopted this, too.
  • Internal Reveal: Every single roleplayer but Frisk knows what's going on, allowing them to set up their own plot twists.
    • Spaztique has a game of seeing how many casual spoilers he can drop as Chara without Frisk catching on to what's really happening.
  • Involuntary Dance: In Stream 3, when Frisk finds the Dusty Tutu, Chara makes him dance to The Dance of Mirlitons from The Nutcracker.
  • Kid Hero: Frisk wants to be one. It's implied Chara was one, but...
    • By the end, Frisk really does become one.
  • Large Ham: Undyne, naturally, but also half of the monsters done by Sethb1.
    • EVERYONE during the Neutral and Pacifist finales.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: Frisk has 12 siblings. He's on a quest for treasure to help support his family.
  • Mood Whiplash: Regularly...
    • The transition from the Ruins to Snowdin. After a tense fight with Toriel, Frisk and Chara share a laugh when Chara makes a pun about Frisk's name. Then immediately after, Flowey comes to scare them both. And immediately after that, they meet Sans and Papyrus, who somehow manage to top the original game's Hurricane of Puns.
    • Stream #3 altogether. After the humorous trip through Snowdin, Frisk begins learning snippets of Chara's Dark and Troubled Past, not to mention a treacherous chase with Undyne, including the first death of the run.
      • The scene where Frisk and Chara listen to the music box statue is slow and sad as Chara discusses her past, her family, and her brother, nearly breaking down in tears... And then it's immediately followed by the scene with the Dog and the Legendary Artifact.
    • Stream #6 begins rather humorously with Frisk and Chara's shenanigans at the MTT resort, followed by the battle with Mettaton, then things take a sharp plunge when Alphys delivers a much darker version of her final monologue and a downright grueling battle against Asgore.
      • Even the scene in the hotel room is this: it starts with Chara thanking Frisk for being there for her, then transitions into a silly scene of Frisk and Chara rummaging under the bed sheets.
    • Stream #8. Starts out with the Alphys date, then plummets into horror in the True Laboratory.
  • Morality Chain: Frisk to Chara. Chara feels all of the emotions Frisk feels. During their battle with Flowey, Chara says if she hadn't attached to somebody as kind and loving as Frisk, she'd be just as ruthless and genocidal as Flowey.
  • My Greatest Failure: Chara hints at one in Stream 3. All Frisk knows is that it involves her brother.
    • Stream 6 confirms Chara feels responsible for her brother Asriel's death, and now she's forced to play damage control to make up for it.
  • Nightmare Face: Chara tries to pull this on Frisk twice when they first meet, but Frisk just laughs it off.
  • Nightmare Retardant: invoked In-Universe, Frisk isn't phased by Chara's creepy face or creepier face, completely laughing it off.
  • No Sympathy: Chara at first: she gladly takes Frisk's soul and doesn't really care if Frisk kills or spares everything. Then, after not killing Toriel, Chara's adopted mother, Frisk's kindness begins rubbings off on her.
  • Odd Couple: Frisk and Chara.
  • Off the Rails: The whole point of the game: anyone can change anyone's character dialogue.
    • Chara takes Frisk's soul in the first five minutes, complete with the sprites, but she's still friendly and embark on the Pacifist Route.
    • In the Ruins, the rock that won't move doesn't even follow the original in-game dialogue.
    • Loox calls himself Mike Wazowski and is a famous movie star.
    • Flowey knows Frisk and Chara are two different people.
    • Sans' dialogue now somehow has double the puns.
    • Undyne's open love for anime during the chase scenes somehow makes her all-the-more terrifying.
    • During the Mettaton battle, Mettaton expresses his desire to dethrone Disney.
    • Alphys' monologue to Frisk before fighting Asgore is vastly different and much, much darker.
    • Frisk tries to convince Asgore not to fight before the actual battle, but Asgore responds why he has no choice.
    • Frisk really does make it to the surface in the (neutral) end.
  • Oh, Crap!: Chara is downright terrified of Undyne.
  • Once per Episode: Every stream, there seems to be a moment where Chara tells Frisk a pun/joke that causes them both to laugh for a minute straight.
    • Every stream seems to open with a conversation about Overwatch.
  • Pass the Popcorn: Chara's reaction to Frisk dating Alphys.
  • Pungeon Master: Sans, naturally, but now Chara: especially since the narration is not restricted.
    Frisk: Let's look at the vines first.
    *Frisk inspects the vines.*
    Chara: You feel the vines.
    Frisk: Anything back there?
    Chara: Nope. They just feel... viney. Luckily, it takes at most seven seconds.
    • Then later, then Frisk reveals his name...
    Chara: Tell me, Frisk, is that spelled with an "e" or with a "y."
    Frisk: With an "e"? What?
    Chara: You know: because you don't have any "i"s.
    Frisk: Oh ha ha...
    *beat*
    • In Snowdin, Chara comments on the fishing rod with the number attached to it, "We should let them know their pickup line works."
    • In Hotland, after the water and cup evaporate...
    Chara: Rest in peace, evaporated water and cup. You will be mist.
  • Sad Clown: Chara. Regularly cracks puns and does their best Frisk to laugh. Also filled with deep regret over the death of their brother and the ruination of the Underground.
  • Sharing a Body: Frisk and Chara, but Frisk really wants Chara out of his body: especially since Chara is pretty lousy at using it, putting them both in danger several times. Chara lets Frisk go in the Pacifist Ending.
  • Shout-Out: Several...
    • From the Ruins...
    *when Frisk chooses to run off instead of wait for Toriel*
    Frisk: Off we go!
    Chara: Alright, but just remember: YOU DISOBEYED TORIEL!!!
  • Suicidal Pacifism: Chara believes Frisk will end up just like her brother, whose constant mercy got him killed.
  • Talkative Loon: Gerson, but what's funny is everything he discusses is actually plot-relevant.
  • They Do: Toriel gives Asgore a second chance in the end.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Chocolate for Chara, Peanut Butter for Frisk.
  • World of Pun: Taken Up to Eleven thanks to the unrestricted dialogue.
