WARNING: Unmarked Undertale spoilers below.

Endertale is an Undertale AU comic created by TC-96.

It follows the daily life of Frisk three years after they achieved a perfect pacifist ending which not only freed the monsters, but also brought Asriel back as well.

With monsters and humans getting along better than ever and Frisk living a happy life as a member of the Dreemurr family, life is sweet.

But not everyone is happy with this ending...

Provides examples of:

  • Beware the Nice Ones: Frisk and Asriel are good guys now, sure. But they've done some pretty horrible stuff before the perfect pacifist ending and Frisk can still be really damn scary if you push them too hard.
  • Big Bad: Chara, being Frisk's Enemy Within.
  • Bloodless Carnage: Averted. The comic can be incredibly graphic and brutal at times. The inherent softness of the artstyle makes it even more jarring to see.

  • Creepy Child: The most obvious example would be Chara, but given the things they've done (and will do) Frisk and Asriel can be counted as this as well.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Frisk and Asriel vs Sans, Papyrus and Undyne, though they come very close to winning.
    • As a much sadder example, Frisk vs Ryan later on in the comic. Poor kid barely has a chance to understand what's going on before Frisk wipes the floor with him.
    • Chara vs Frisk in the loading screen. Chara manages to dispose of Frisk in relatively short time with the help of their toxic DT. Though one could argue that Frisk wasn't exactly in a condition to fight back after roughly three days without sleep and the constant mental torture Chara's been putting them through.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Chara inflicting a nigh constant Mind Rape on Frisk in order to punish them for their genocide run. Even though what Frisk did in that run was horrible, it is later on revealed that Chara was the one who suggested it in the first place. Plus, there's really no reason for Chara to be so hard on Frisk, after they already repented and gave everyone, even Asriel, a happy ending.

  • Enemy Within: Chara is still very much alive in this comic and very insistent on Frisk using their reset-powers to start another genocide run.
  • Evil Only Has to Win Once: Lampshaded by Frisk. Should Chara actually manage to get Frisk to reset, they'd win. The current timeline would be wiped from existence and no one would even remember Frisk.
  • Gender-Neutral Writing: Several characters in the comic are referred to with they/them-pronouns.
  • Hidden Depths: Considering what game we're talking about here, it's not much of a surprise that there's way more to a lot of the characters (especially Chara and Frisk) then you'd guess at first glance.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Chara frequently tries to get Frisk to reset the timeline by trying to convince them that the current timeline is corrupted, along with their friends, despite there being no evidence of this being the case.
  • Mood Whiplash: The comic starts off relatively light-hearted after the prologue, with Frisk and Asriel engaging in a hearty game of "Capture the Flag" with Papyrus, Sans and Undyne. Then it takes a turn for the worst when Chara makes Frisk hallucinate, reminding them and the reader that they're still here and still very keen on getting that reset.
  • Ripple Effect-Proof Memory: Chara, Asriel and Frisk have the ability to remember what happened after a Reset or a Load.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Chara dishes those out to Frisk almost every time they appear. Frisk finally turns it around on them after finally getting fed up with Chara's Never My Fault - attitude.
  • Wham Line: "Sheesh, Asriel still can't stop falling out of the bed, huh? He can be such a baby, huh? Partner..."note 
  • Wham Shot:
    • Frisk sucker-punching Ryan after he goes too far with one of his harsh remarks.
    • Chara stopping Frisk from pressing the CONTINUE - button with toxic DT.
    • Frisk demonstrating that the reset button's been destroyed, which sends Chara into a breakdown as they realize that their efforts to turn Frisk have been pointless.
