The Best Undertale Artwork - These Works of Art Will Make You Love Undertale Even More - Odd Nugget

Contents

Undertale is one of the most unique video games ever created.

Besides totally subverting all of the usual roleplaying game expectations players are otherwise accustomed to, Undertale was also developed almost entirely by a single person!

Pretty nuts, really...


Why Undertale is So Special

Those who have somehow avoided looking into this game so far may find it strange that something so apparently simple is held in such high regard.

After all, there are lots of games with similar artwork and minigame-based battle mechanics. What's the big deal about this one, right?

Well, as I mentioned above, the maker of Undertale (Toby Fox) subverted most of the core concepts of RPGs throughout the game.

He effectively flipped the genre on its head, turning what would normally be the right move (fighting enemies as they appear) into the wrong move altogether.

But, it goes deeper than that...

Throughout the game, you are given choices that drastically influence the outcome. There are multiple potential endings (all of which are way out of the ordinary for video games, in general) and replaying the game after you've played it a certain way does NOT give you a fresh start.

Characters in the game remember you and EVERYTHING you've done in past playthroughs. It's weird, unsettling and actually quite groundbreaking.


"Woah, woah, woah, I thought Undertale was a kids' game!"

You and me both, pal. You and me both.

Undertale is a lot of things. As for age appropriateness, it's pretty much fine for kids 12 and above.

Younger children, on the other hand, might have a hard time dealing with some of the more harrowing and emotionally intense segments. However, the game's deep-rooted moral meaning is excellent and makes for an overwhelmingly positive influence for kids - so that's nothing to worry about.

Hard lines are drawn between good and evil in Undertale that even G-rated games might not be able to match. (I'm looking at you "comic mischief" ratings!)

For a story with a heart (pun oh so intended), you can't really go wrong with Undertale. It's a masterpiece.

But, speaking of masterpieces...

I've rooted for the finest Undertale-related artistic specimens the web has to offer to put the digital gallery below together for you.

Ok, fine... This is the best Undertale artwork that Deviantart.com has to offer, but that's close enough, ok?

They're all organized by character (no I didn't include EVERY character, sorry, maybe there can be a part 2?).

Sans Art


Sans and Gaster by majumiSans and Gaster by majumi

This one would make a great Undertale wallpaper for diehard Sans fans. It also features one of the game's most mysterious figures - Gaster, the disembodied scientist.

I know this one's adorable, but the pun-monster within compells me to call it 'cool'.

Comic relief aside, Papyrus is actually a pretty tough guy.

Fourth walls, fourth windows... Papyrus just breaks stuff, mostly.

Papyrus was already cool and arguably didn't need to take up smoking, but this picture is great anyway.
