The story of man and monster, retold.
"The game you've come to love, now with bits and pieces of new content!"
— Underevent 2021 trailer

Created by Team!BNP, Undertale: Bits and Pieces is a Game Mod of Undertale featuring completely overhauled graphics, new areas, new enemies and remixed music as well as featuring content carried over from its (sort of) sequel, Deltarune.

Currently, the mod is still a work-in-progress, and has most content up through Hotland completed. It may be downloaded from GameJolt here.

Undertale:Bits and Pieces provides examples of:

  • Amazing Technicolor Battlefield: Glyde's battle.
  • Anti-Frustration Features: Multiple quality of life improvements have been made, easing many common complaints people have had with Undertale's gameplay:
    • Pressing ESC will bring up a pause menu, allowing you to quickly change the settings, or quickly return to the save screen.
    • When Toriel gives you a Cell Phone, she also gives you a pair of sneakers, allowing you to run by holding X.
    • Fulfilling a condition for the Genocide route will cause a jingle will play. Likewise, a different jingle will play when fulfilling a condition to abort it.
    • Advertisement:
    • A Froggit in the ruins will tell the player "how much fun they are having". This number actually corresponds to the FUN value, serving as an easy way to find out what that particular run's FUN value is, since it's normally hidden in the game's files.
    • Undyne's pursuit will work in a similar way to Deltarune: Frisk's soul and eyes will glow red, and instead of being transported into a battlefield, they only have to avoid her spears. The same works for Hotland's blue and orange lines puzzles.
    • The Art Club now has one reunion per month, giving you another delay to meet So Sorry if you missed the October 8th reunion.
    • After a reset, Frisk can find the Wrist Protector from Deltarune hidden inside the first room. It, of course, allows you quickly skip through dialouge.
  • Ascended Extra:
    • Monster Kid now accompanies you throughout the majority of Waterfall, rather than simply showing up in a few specific areas.
    • Advertisement:
    • Jerry appears more frequently alongside Ice Cap in Snowdin.
  • Blood-Splattered Warrior: A variation: if you take a No Mercy run, Frisk's clothing will be covered in dust.
  • Bootstrapped Leitmotif:
    • The unused track "Star" has become repurposed as a motif for Chara. An arrangement of the track — "Room of Fallen Stars" — plays in the first room when Frisk wakes up in the Underground, and the new Genocide battle theme — "Enemy Poaching" — incorporates a Dark Reprise of the melody.
    • The main melody of "Battle Against A True Hero" and "Power of NEO" is also now used to represent the Genocide Route as a whole, appearing in most of the Genocide-exclusive songs (including the aforementioned "Enemy Poaching").
    • Toby Fox's fanmade theme song for Noisemaster, which already had part of the theme reused for Mettaton's theme in Undertale, is repurposed as a battle theme for the Troubleboys with some additions, including replacing the aforementioned part with a new motif.
    • Mirror Frisk's battle theme, "One Step Ahead of Yourself", features the melody of "Megalo Strike Back" (a song Toby made for an Earthbound fan album that became heavily associated with Undertale through its use in fan works).
  • Colorization: The battle sprites of the monsters now are fully colored, as well as certain enemy attacks.
  • Copy Protection: If you try to play the mod with a pirated version of the game, Flowey will come and ask you to buy the original game, even redirecting you to the Steam page. After that, the screen will be locked in a gif of the Annoying Dog sleeping.
  • Disconnected Side Area:
    • In the Ruins, the area where you can get the toy knife in the base game now splits off into two brand new areas: the Sewers, which is pretty self-explanatory, and HOME, a town-like area similar to the one in Snowdin. The latter is locked by a gate, requiring a key you can find in the former.
    • Snowdin also has a campfire area blocked off by two Chilldrakes. You can fight them if you wear the Manly Bandana.
  • Fan Remake: While Bits and Pieces is actually a mod of the original Undertale, it's essentially, for all intents and purposes, a ground-up reimagining of the game — keeping the same story and gameplay of the original, while also updating the graphics and (optionally) music, expanding upon the story with new areas and dialogue, restoring unused and console-exclusive content, and making various general quality-of-life improvements.
  • Game-Over Man: Every time Frisk dies, Flowey will be shown in the background and Asriel may speak in the game over screen instead of Asgore.
  • The Power of Hate: The RAGE ability.
  • Healing Spring: In Waterfall, there is a new area called the Hotwater Bathhouse, where you can use hot springs to restore health ala Mother 3.
  • Hidden Eyes: Frisk's eyes will be hidden by their bangs' shadow if you take a No Mercy run.
  • Optional Boss:
    • The Troubleboys, Hitch and Portabie, are a boss duo that appear in the Sewers. However, they are required to be beaten if you want to explore all the mod has to offer, since they hold the key to HOME.
    • Mirror Frisk is a mysterious entity that appears in a secret room in waterfall. Defeating them will grant Frisk one of 2 abilities: SHEILD and RAGE, depending on if they were spared or killed.
  • Player Death Is Dramatic: If Frisk loses all their HP, alongside the heartbreaking death animation, they will be shown having a heart attack and falling on the ground.
    • And if they are killed by Asgore, their SOUL will be trapped into a container before it shatters.
  • Remake Cameo: A few from Deltarune:
    • Berdly appears in HOME as a child.
    • With a certain FUN value, Rouxls Kaard will appear in certain sections of the CORE for no explicable reason.
  • Shout-Out: Jerry is now playing the Nintendo Switch everytime you encounter him.
  • Silliness Switch: FUN value 69 causes all sorts of silly meme references to pop up, such as Sans introducing himself as "Sans Undertale".
  • Suddenly Voiced: Papyrus now has a laughing voice clip that plays right before you fight him.
  • Voice Grunting: Some characters like Mad Dummy and Muffet gain ones but no dialogue portrait, while it's the other way around for Napstablook and Monster Kid.
