Toriel is a kind monster that acts as a protective mother for the protagonist. . If they flirt with her after calling her "mother," she becomes uncomfortable and calls . ask Toriel about herself, call Toriel "mom", flirt with her, or ask for puzzle help if the protagonist is in a room with a puzzle. After the protagonist leaves the Ruins.
She also mentions this in the epilogue.
They were once extremely close, winning first place in the '98 Nose Nuzzle competition  and were open about their affection for one another.
While she appears to be civil with Asgore when she speaks to him about the future of the Underground in the aftermath of the fight against Asriel, once they are on the surface and everyone else has left, Asgore wonders whether he should leave too, and Toriel glares at him, prompting him to leave her and Frisk alone.
However, in the ending credits, she does not mind his presence while trimming the bushes, hinting a developing tolerance or gradual forgiveness. Flowey Toriel calls Flowey a "miserable creature"  as she fireballs him to protect the protagonist. She is unaware that Flowey is Asriel. Sans Sans and Toriel do not meet in person until the end of a True Pacifist Route and the Family and Exiled Queen endings, where they both have become good friends. They started their friendship by telling jokes to each other through the door leading to the Ruins.
Gallery Toriel's sprite if she kills the protagonist. Toriel glaring at a hostile Froggit. Froggit leaves, Toriel glares even harder. Toriel still confused by the strange outcome of the boring dummy fight.
Toriel forcing the player to fight her. Toriel in a Steam trading card. A side to side comparison of Toriel committing suicide right and Toriel being killed left. The only difference is the mouths. Toriel plush sold on Fangamer.
Toriel's name is a play on the word "tu-torial," as she teaches the protagonist about how the game works. Despite Toriel's motherly nature, she is not above swearing: The narrator's reaction to Toriel's sock drawer  and Sans's sock pile  is similar. Toriel once wore a flower-patterned muu-muu; other monsters complimented her by saying "nice muu-muu," but she assumed everyone was calling her a cow and never wore it again.
If the protagonist bores the Dummy during their encounter, Toriel stares in disbelief and confusion and starts thinking in a confused manner before moving to the next room without comment. When attempting to name the fallen human "Toriel," the response is: If Toriel was killed and the protagonist resets to the point before her battle, Toriel remarks that the protagonist looks like "they have seen a ghost.
If the protagonist spares Toriel, she can be found by the flowerbed where the protagonist initially awoke after falling into the underground.
If the protagonist backtracks to talk to her, she tells them "Do not worry about me. Someone has to take care of these flowers. The player cannot call Toriel once they exit the ruins even if she was spared. While most players may assume that Toriel intentionally refuses to answer the protagonist's calls outside of the Ruins, she is actually unable to answer due to the Annoying Dog having stolen her phone.
Calling her with the Annoying Dog in the inventory causes ringing in the protagonist's inventory, implying that it stole and ate her phone.
Attempting to open the menu by pressing C after fleeing her battle will have the menu disappear instantly, leaving the room will not reproduce the error. This may come as a surprise to you But I have always wanted to be a teacher. I am only protecting you, do you understand? I will not stop you. However, when you leave Please do not come back.

To think I was worried you wouldn't fit in out there You really are no different than them! Now I see who I was protecting by keeping you here. And then asked to call me "mother? I often feel like I already know them. Truthfully, when I first saw you, I felt Number 1 Nose-Nuzzle Champs '98!
Nuzzling noses, bein' all cute n' cuddly in public They were so sweet it made me SICK. Thank god those days are over! He eventually morphed into what's effectively a skeleton dog with a Gaster Blaster head and later gains the ability to speak. They realize that they are a terrible person, and make no excuses or attempts to hide it, but they also make the point that anyone who does what they do deserves to feel terrible about it and doesn't deserve to be happy. When Aidrian is told by the askers that their missing younger sibling Frisk isn't dead, Aidrian accuses the askers of lying and diverts attention to the fact that the asker didn't use gender neutral pronouns.
There's also that time when the askers tried to clear up her misconception that Papyrus kidnapped Jason during their first conversation with her, only for her to not believe them.
Though to be fair, that one anon royally screwed up the first impression for the rest of the askers who were trying to get her to calm the hell down. Toriel gets one of these during the Sweet Dreams and Nice Creams arc.
Chara's first appearance in the story presented them as being a borderline Complete Monster. The area behind the couch that Sans ripped W. Gaster back into existence ends up creating a rip in reality, allowing beings access to their house through it. Frisk's classmate Callallied didn't get much focus on their introduction, but then they indirectly caused Frisk to discover their magic powers. Then they were revealed to be an alter ego of Chara.
The askers have a brief stint as this when they tell Jason and Aidrian to watch a YouTube video of Sans while fighting Chara in his own mind as the Memelordthen telling them to check who uploaded the video.
A villainous version when Chara implores the askers to lend them enough strength to regain power. Surprisingly enough, multiple askers go along with it. Chara uses this as proof that there are examples of Humans Are Bastards everywhere, no matter how nice they act. Ironically enough, they were seemingly inspired to do this by the manner in which Sans defeated them earlier, as it was the askers' encouragement that gave him the power to drive them out of his head.
What I find most interesting is how his soul seems to be drawing in power from around him. I think this is how he's able to fight Chara effectively despite being the weaker of the two souls. Collector of the Strange: The parents of Frisk and Aidrian apparently owned a collection of porcelain pigs before Aidrian smashed them all when she stood up to them. The askers were colorblind and only saw black and white for everything with a few exceptions, including magic.
Now it's subverted due to Alphys poking the portal to Goopster's world while it was going through the true pacifist end. Now everything's in color. In the Sweet Dreams and Nice Creams arc, after Flowey learns that his soul is growing back, which is only driving him to feel guilt for his past sins and is not bringing back his sense of identity, an asker gives him a copy of Fire Emblem: Fates for comfort, but Flowey complains that it still sucks because he has enough of a soul to feel emotionally affected by choosing between Birthright or Conquest.
One flashback depicts a news report circa monsters' emergence from Mt.
Ebott, with the scrolling banner at the bottom referencing the events of the fourth Storytime comic. Mod Trash Queen's cat persona can be spotted on occasion. Another crossover occurred in the fourth arc, with Ask Drunk Chara. Aidrian is right in the middle of one. Given that it was Papyrus she attacked, it's not entirely undeserved.
A natural reaction from the franchise's original creator. One with only a small grace period too. It's Frisk's pacifism that undergoes this. Askers call Frisk out on not allowing Chara to be killed by Sans as it seemingly leads to Sans' death, The Reconstruction comes almost immediately as Monster Kid points out that Frisk is still a good person for staying true to their beliefs and the blame should belong to Chara. And then it's revealed that Sans was faking his death. See Color Blind Confusion above.
Also done when Chara wants to disappear after ADC! Frisk convinces them to stop attacking at the end of Eclipse Total; they and their mindscape are dull and grey to symbolize how they were drowning in despair.
In fact, the only reason Chara didn't disappear is because Asriel couldn't leave them. Chara does this to Sans in the Red Echoes story arc. Didn't Think This Through: Hermann admits this about fighting Chara! Sans, as they had no intention to kill them in the first place, so when Sans simply stops trying to dodge their orange attacks, they're at a loss.
When things get too much for them, they panic and run for the hills. Justified as Chara is still just a kid and is likely inexperienced with stress, and it gives Chara a chance to re-think their plans and adjust accordingly.
It's in Harlow Garamond's check description that he pays back all offenses two-fold.
This means they would have killed Aidrian if Maverick didn't step in. Subverted by Sans, who simply pranks Aidrian for assaulting Papyrus. A couple of the askers theorize this about W. Gaster's fall into the CORE.
It's implied that they are right. Frisk aborted the Genocide Run by killing themselves before landing the final blow on Sans. Appears to be the case with Chara. Frisk's intervention, Chara proclaimed that they just wanted to disappear. This resulted in them letting go of everything, including Asriel's soul, and proceeding to sink into the ocean of their own mindscape.
The only reason they haven't kicked the bucket yet is because Asriel is desperately trying to keep the unconscious kid's head above water. Dude Looks Like a Lady: Braids, a corn doll monster, has long hair and a drawn on, rather gender neutral face.
However, his description when an asker checks his stats uses masculine pronouns. This is also a recurring problem for Mettaton. Apparently humans aren't as open-minded regarding feminine-looking men as monsters. Immediately before Gaster's introduction, he appears in Sans's explanation of monster reproduction. Since Aidrian is Frisk's sister and Sans gets some level of vengeance, the main cast and askers let her assault on Papyrus slide.
But Flowers, Braids, Twinkies, and Harlow do not. It's not helped by the fact that the name is very masculine, and thus is a terrible fit for the agender Frisk. Chara does a fair bit of this in the "Red Echoes" arc; humorously, this is what lets Sans get the jump on them in the first place. What Goopster thinks the portal behind the couch is. How Undyne lost her eye.
It was impaled by a piece of shrapnel when the CORE exploded. Compared to the canon ending to Undertale, there is a lot more racism between humans and monsters. Fate Worse than Death: It's implied that the apocalypse that destroyed Maverick's world was this, with Word of God saying that a nuke would have been nicer.
This is Gaster's justification for his heinous actions after Hermann's death, such as experimenting on fallen children and his neglect of his sons, but it is thoroughly torn apart when Hermann herself appears and calls him out for his actions. As this is an ask blog, this trope applies. At first, Frisk is seen viewing the questions on their Tumblr, but after the void is ripped, the characters start hearing the questions directly.
One of the first questions on the blog is about what it's like living with Flowey. Frisk responds with "I think there's more of Asriel in him than he pretends there is. Asriel's soul can be spotted inside of Chara's in a select few panels if you look closely. Maverick also drops a hint related to his soul as well with his flash drive.
There were a surprising amount of clues that Callallied is actually Chara; it's just that few, if anyone, thought of the possibility and put the clues together until after The Reveal. Callallied's submission details a backstory that matches Chara's exactly, and describes how they want to get close to Frisk to prove that humanity is bad; they are apprehensive when they realize Maverick is nearby; Chara dug up a body and knitted clothes; and more.
Word Of God and later on in the comic proper, Alphys discuss something called the "Metamorphosis Theory" where Humans become Monsters by possessing then later bonding to objects, similar to ghost monsters like Mettaton in Undertale canon.
Guess what ultimately happens to Chara. Frying Pan of Doom: Get a Hold of Yourself, Man! One asker used the Exact Words Flowey used when he was pissed that Hermann didn't even realize she has her soul back against him, anticipating that Flowey would be in denial after it was discovered that a bit of Asriel's soul still remains in Flowey.
Flowey stated how soulless creatures can only feel basic survival instinct and the satisfaction of beating someone at Smash Bros. Just as Flowey said it was " incredibly stupid " of Hermann to dive into a river of Piranhas to save Gaster, the asker pointed out how Goopster could've easily killed him if it weren't for Toriel shielding him from the blast, and the first idea he got was to ATTACK the same guy who almost killed him not 5 minutes before in retaliation.
Flowey was neither amused nor able to come up with a counter argument. Giver of Lame Names: Asgore's lousy naming skills continue, with the city where they all live on the surface being called Monster Town. Go for the Eye: Jason escapes Twinkies by throwing Pocket Sand in his eyes. Go Mad from the Revelation: Subverted and lampshaded a few times in the comic. A few characters express surprise that they can take in stride matters such as disembodied voices from beyond the Void and even learning their entire world is a work of fiction to those voices.
Alphys suspects that the "forces at play" i. Undyne and Papyrus play this with Maverick. Hermann does this on occasion. Undyne responds with some after an asker responds to them punching Adrian for harming Papyrus. Chara dug up at least one grave from the underground, which apparently ties into their plan. Later, it turns out that they dug up their own skeleton to use as a puppet. Which is good because their biological parents were horrible. Undyne has two mothers, and Alphys had two fathers.
In Red Echoes, Sans constantly insists that everyone else should kill him so Chara would die alongside him. Everybody refuses to and he manages to survive without killing Chara. Flowey knows the periodic table well enough to translate Gaster's meme. Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Toriel becomes a victim of this at the hands of a possessed Sans although she does survive. The Riverperson shows the ability to block spoilers as a way to keep the reveal that she is Hermann, Gaster's wife, from being revealed too early.
Maverick Chaosdragon also has the ability to alter the narration. It Makes Sense in Context: This gem from Papyrus explaining about askers to Jason: They helped my brother meme a ghost out of his mind yesterday. Sans after being woken up from his "sexy burger dream". Downplayed, because Sans was being more Innocently Insensitive for having his "sexy burger dream" while Toriel was in a fit of depression. Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Flowers, Braids, and Twinkies. They openly insult Frisk's authority, but they care enough about Papyrus to take revenge for him against Aidrian.
Late to the Realization: Seriously, what did they THINK would happen when they possessed the body of a person drunk out of their gourd? At times, such as when an asker asked to look at Jason's soul.
