"I WILL BE THE ONE! I MUST BE THE ONE! I WILL CAPTURE A HUMAN! THEN, I, THE GREAT PAPYRUS... WILL GET ALL THE THINGS I UTTERLY DESERVE! RESPECT... RECOGNITION... I WILL FINALLY BE ABLE TO JOIN THE ROYAL GUARD!
~ Papyrus


Papyrus is one of the bosses and a main character from the indie role-playing game Undertale, developed by Toby Fox.

Background

Not much is known about Papyrus' background. All we know is that his brother and himself suddenly showed up in Snowdin one day and asserted themselves. For a very long time, Papyrus has wanted to join the Underground's Royal Guard, and even trains with their leader, Undyne, on a regular basis. While Undyne actually considers him a good fighter, she believes Papyrus is too nice to do some of the more violent work of a Royal Guard, so she doesn't make him one. One day, Papyrus and Sans encountered a human child, who'd fallen into the Underground, and tried to capture them and bring them to King Asgore. After using numerous puzzles to try and capture the human, followed by battling them himself, Papyrus instead befriended them, and wished them luck on their journey.

Powers & Abilities

  • Bone Manipulation: Papyrus can uses bones of different sizes and speed to physically hit his opponent.
  • Soul Manipulation: Blue Mode: Can turns his opponent's soul blue, making it affected by gravity and pinning them to the ground. In this state, the opponent can only get around by jumping, making it much harder to dodge his attacks.

Equipment

  • Bones: Like his brother Sans, he carries tons of bones for battle. However, his bones sometimes are useless if he hasn't turned his foe blue yet.
  • Blue Bones: These bones can be avoided by doing nothing. However, the Player turns blue afterwards, and goes into platform mode.

Feats

  • Undyne considers him skilled enough to be a Royal Guard member, though his innocence keeps him from becoming one
  • Knows most locations and info of said locations and able to know where something is based on short descriptions of an area making him very aware and knowledgeable of his surroundings and have a very good memory. *seen if calling him 1 or more times in almost any location.
  • Able to greatly jump over someone (about 3~4 meters or 9ft~13ft of jump height) *seen after sparing him.

Weaknesses

  • Way too nice and innocent to kill someone.
  • Usual monster weakness, his attack power will weaken if he doesn't want to kill anyone and gets hurt by people with killing intent
  • Sometimes the Annoying Dog takes his bones, and ends up messing him up in battle, like with his "special attack".
  • Being easily influenced, believing everything he hears.

  • Papyrus' clothes are actually a costume him and Sans made for a party once, and he hasn't removed them since.
  • The in-game sprites show Papyrus as being 1.5 times bigger of his brother Sans, though officials artwork for the game depicts him as being three times taller then Sans.
