Today’s Undyne appreciation post:
A warrior who in the end, didn’t want to protect only her friends and her world, but even the human world itself (her biggest enemies) from Chara’s control over Frisk. Even though I couldn’t bring myself to play a genocide run, Undyne’s death on neutral was one of the most tragic and heart-wrenching scenes for me. Because I didn’t know what I was doing at first. my health was literally 1. I ran out of Nice Creams and I didn’t even know there was this “cooling water” option to do. I struggled for a long time spamming spare where she kept saying “it’s time for you to die!” And nothing happened. The more I clicked spare the slower her arrows gotten. The more I kept blocking them the blurrier and vaguer her body gets. And every time I try to go to another page on my items I realize I had no other choice. As her piano theme song keeps playing. The more frustrated I get as I run out of options. I kept blocking and blocking as she gets slower, weaker, and more fragile. Yet she still had a smile on her face. Nothing hurt more than to see someone in front of you who shared a mutual friend in common. When she “I won’t die!” Before saying the name of her friends who give her a reason to live and be alive I started crying. When she mentioned Papyrus’s name and the others my heart flinched. I felt a sudden pain as I cried because I knew that deep down. Despite not being close. We were friends and it could have been better if I had the chance to pick a different route but no. I couldn’t that was my first experience with battling Undyne.
And genocide was just too tragic than it already was.
I loved how her whole morale showed that was hidden behind this bad and mean persons exterior she was hiding. She had a sense of morality, a sense of justice, and a sense of Good. A character who stood even against her biggest enemy to even protect her OWN personal enemies. This is Undyne.
Like and appreciate this awesome girl. We love you Undyne! Thank you for protecting us all.
Who’s excited to see the next character tomorrow! 💚
