Grillby Bonus Boss Fight (Genocide Run) (spoilers!)
I’m surprised I haven’t seen more posts about this fight. It shouldn’t be that hard to find, since sans flat out tells you where to go. If you head
back to Grillby’s after beating Sans you’ll find him waiting there for
you. And he’s not happy.
The glasses scroll from right to left or left to right, and they get faster each time.
This one gets really tricky, since the bubbles don’t move in straight
lines and you can’t stop moving. It’s not impossible but I’ve never
avoided taking damage.
And sometimes he just lets one of these loose. This one doesn’t look
too hard to avoid, and it isn’t at first. But it can strike in the
center or on either side, and he’ll sometimes do it in the middle of the
other two attacks.
As you would guess from his defense, one hit is enough to take him
down…but he immediately reignites no matter how many times you do.
The only way to make it stick is to make a detour to Hotland first.
If you carry the cup with you into the battle you have a new option in the act menu.
As many of you probably know there’s an early copy of the patch that’s
been floating around, probably something meant for testing that got out
into the wild. It appears that it does a bit more than just fixing minor
bugs. Looks what happens if you set your computer’s date to October 31! I won’t spoil everything, but I figured you guys would want a preview.
Most of the changes are in Snowdin, but every area has one or two
changes, and there’s new dialogue for everyone in costume.

it with your finger once it’s sent, and
you’re ready to challenge each other
by seeing who can get the most
consecutive baskets. Source
This is a bit of an obscure easter egg in Undertale. Normally you can’t access Grillby’s shop interface, but it’s possible to get into it if you the right conditions are met in your second playthrough. Some of the data miners have already seen this of course, but it’s definitely worth it to find it the proper way. I won’t spoil it all here, but there’s a bit of interesting tidbits of backstory. For instance, Grillby seems to have gotten sucked up from below through the CORE, and now he’s stuck in the barrier too. Nothing earthshattering but a fun bit of backstory to understand why the fire guy is in the ice area. He won’t actually give you the shot of fire though :(
