Papyrus – undertale wiki electricity distribution losses

Papyrus is a tall, perhaps anatomically inaccurate skeleton with a skull more vertical and geometric than his brother. Being skeletal, many of his expressions incorporate a toothy grin. His eyes lack pupils and resemble vertical slits; his skeletal pseudo-brows form most of his expressions. He has eyeballs which show at times when he is experiencing strong emotions, although some consider this to be only a joke.

He wears his "battle body," an outfit that he created for a costume party. [1] It includes a white chest plate with gold trim, orange-red gloves with gold trim, blue briefs with a golden belt, and knee-high, orange-red boots. A symbol that resembles that of Starmen from the MOTHER series adorns the chest plate.

Halfway through the date/hangout with Papyrus, he changes into his "secret style": a backward baseball cap, a t-shirt that reads "Cool Dude," small shorts with buttons, gloves with striped trim, knee-high socks, and sneakers. He also wears basketballs on his shoulders, likely Mettaton’s MTT-Brand FashionBall. [2] Alphys Date (Jogboy) [ edit | edit source ]

In a Genocide Route, Papyrus pulls much of the same antics that he does in a Neutral/Pacifist route, except often cites the protagonist’s unwillingness to complete his puzzles. [32] He remains oblivious to the protagonist’s motives until their battle, where he instantly spares them, wishing to guide the protagonist on a better path and be friends. The protagonist can then spare or kill Papyrus.

If the protagonist kills him, he states he still believes in the protagonist and thinks that they can become a better person. If they decide to spare him, Papyrus proclaims that they " DIDN’T DO A VIOLENCE," and says that he was secretly terrified of the protagonist. [33] From that point on, the protagonist may choose to "hang out" with Papyrus, and the protagonist aborts the Genocide Route and move to a Neutral Route.

Despite wanting to capture the protagonist, Papyrus still cares about them [34] and eventually ends up dating/hanging out with them if the protagonist does not kill him. He turns the protagonist down if they choose to date, as he realizes he does not feel the same way about them. Notably, Papyrus hangs out with the protagonist even if they had been on a Genocide Route up until sparing him.

Sans is Papyrus’s brother, and though Papyrus often chastises him for being lazy and detests his many skeleton puns dropped throughout the game, the two of them care about each other a lot. Papyrus often cleans up after Sans and prompted him to get a job as a sentry. [35]

Papyrus is upset that Sans naps so much [36] and mentions that it’s impressive how much slacking off his brother can do. [37] Even though Sans reads Papyrus bedtime stories and is the sole provider in the skeleton household, Papyrus takes care of his brother and wonders what Sans would do without such a "cool guy" watching over him. Together, they made Papyrus’s battle body as well as his cardboard sentry station in Snowdin Forest. [38]

Papyrus and Undyne are good friends. After Papyrus asked to join the Royal Guard, Undyne gave him cooking lessons, and they bonded. Because Undyne does not have the heart to tell Papyrus that she will never let him join the Royal Guard, Papyrus continues trying to impress her by capturing a human. Sometimes Undyne grosses Papyrus out, [41] but Papyrus looks up to her as a role model. Papyrus is also oblivious of when Undyne is angry at him, [42] though he is keen enough to know to present befriending the protagonist as a challenge to her.

Papyrus sees Flowey as a good friend because Flowey offers him predictions, flattery, advice, and encouragement. Papyrus also borrows some of Flowey’s dialogue characteristics, [43] and Flowey guides Papyrus to call the protagonist’s friends to interrupt Asgore’s battle with the protagonist.

• Papyrus does not remember Napstablook’s name and tries to guess it if the protagonist phones him outside their house. His guesses are "Spooky Bloo Bloo" and "Napper Hog." He also does the same with Flowey by calling him "Flowery" and with Napstablook’s cousin by calling him "Happstablook."

• Papyrus seems to contradict himself in phone calls with Undyne or Sans, compared to when he is only speaking to the protagonist. For example, if called on his own in the MTT Hotel, he remarks "I WOULD NEVER TAKE A VACATION FOR ANY REASON." If Undyne is present, however, he agrees they should vacation to a hotel together. It is possible, however, that Papyrus has changed his mind about taking a vacation after Undyne moved in with him.

• The artbook reveals that Papyrus was originally going to wear a fedora and be a creep with no redeeming qualities, and his favorite show was going to be called "My Little Boney". This was changed since a mean-spirited character would be unfitting to the game. His original design was also inspired by Dedan from OFF, but has changed a lot since.

• ↑ But, um, to be honest… …I don’t know if I can ever let Papyrus into the Royal Guard. Don’t tell him I said that! He’s just… well… I mean it’s not that he’s weak. He’s actually pretty freaking tough! It’s just that… he’s… he’s too innocent and nice!!! I mean, look, he was SUPPOSED to capture you… and he ended up being friends with you instead! I could NEVER send him to battle! He’d get ripped into little smiling shreds.- Undyne

• ↑ " I PITY YOU… LONELY HUMAN… WORRY NOT!!! YOU SHALL BE LONELY NO LONGER! I, THE GREAT PAPYRUS, WILL BE YOUR… … NO… NO, THIS IS ALL WRONG! I CAN’T BE YOUR FRIEND!!! YOU ARE A HUMAN! I MUST CAPTURE YOU!!! THEN, I CAN FULFILL MY LIFELONG DREAM!!! POWERFUL! POPULAR! PRESTIGIOUS!!! THAT’S PAPYRUS!!! THE NEWEST MEMBER… OF THE ROYAL GUARD!" – Papyrus

• ↑ " IT SEEMS LIKE SHE CAUGHT HEAT-STROKE OR SOMETHING. SOMEONE MUST HAVE BROUGHT HER BACK HOME… BECAUSE SHE CAN BARELY MOVE.IN ANY CASE, I DON’T THINK WE CAN HANG OUT. I’M JUST WAITING HERE IN CASE SHE NEEDS ME." – Papyrus, if the protagonist did not give Undyne water.
