And here are the Underfell results from the stream! I went ahead and discussed my feelings about the AU, what I liked and disliked about it, and what I would change both design and character wise. I didn’t cover everyone I wanted to (Like Flowey) but I had a lot of fun making my ideal version of this AU’s characters! My main design philosophy for this was “These guys are trying to be evil, but are not really evil.” I think it went really well!
My favorites are Sans and Undyne, but Brad Unferfell Asgore holds a special place in my heart too. Thanks to everyone who made it to the stream!
A lot of you asked for more RPG AU earring diagrams so here’s everyone’s right ears!! :^) eijun and mei both have high charisma stat and their ears reflect that… haha….
(i’ll do their left ears another day.. it’s not as exciting (???) since majority of these babies will have only guild earrings but miyuki and ryou definitely have some decently decorated left ears in comparison to the others)
Mei in RPG!AU… a paladin from the Inashiro guild :’))))
The media loves Narumiya Mei (the Prince of Paladins) for his charms, looks, and outstanding strength on the battlefield. He’s also revered for his stamina during tournament battles, winning round after round without break.
He has a very loyal fanclub that attends all of his matches. Mei’s fanclub and Miyuki’s fanclub often bicker with one another.
Trapped in a mysterious dungeon with seemingly no way out, you and a band of adventurers must seek a way out. Similar to Haikyuu Quest or something - this just looks at what class they’d be if they were characters in an RPG.
Ushijima: The Paladin
Following Mirai as her faithful protector, Ushijima protects those with little thought for himself. He values justice more than anything and will not hesitate to put those around him in their place if they dare to betray his trust.
Semi : The Mage
Excelling in battle magic, the elements bow to Semi’s will. Nobody knows his actual age but he’s been told millions of times that he looks good for whatever age he is. Though reluctant to team up with others, he’s slowly learning to rely on others.
Reon: The Knight
As a child, Reon watched his village burn down. Now, he has sworn his allegiance to his kingdom in hopes of delivering justice to those responsible for taking the lives of his loved ones. However, now he’s found new people to protect. He won’t ever let them be taken from him again,
Tendou: The Necromancer
A lost ‘benevolent’ wizard that tags along to feel the thrill of adventure. While he claims to be more powerful that he appears, his ‘true strength’ is only to be unleashed in a moment of great danger. Despite his ominous words, he’s taken to a lackadaisical way of life and won’t go out of his way to fight for those who don’t interest him.
Goshiki: The Warrior
A young upcoming swordsman who wants to find it in himself to be one of the greatest heroes out there. While he’s not even halfway to where he wants to be, his courage is unparalleled and his heart stands firm even in the face of death.
Shirabu: The Healer
“Defend me your scrubs”. As the only one capable of giving a good heal to someone, letting him get knocked out of the fight would be a grave error in the team’s strategy. Armed with light magic, Shirabu’s knowledge however only truly flourishes when he’s calm in mind.
Kawanishi: The Archer
Naturally adept at fighting, he’s never had to face a proper challenge. Now with the world against him, he’s been moreorless forced to cooperate with others. He’d rather just have stayed at home and just seen the travellers off of their way. Despite everything that told him no, the thrill of adventure still reeled him into coming along.
Yamagata: The Assassin
While nobody knows if it’s his real name, Yamagata’s got a bone to pick with the empire so he’ll be joining the adventurers on their quest. He’s merciless against their opponents, picking whatever loot he can off of them, despite the more ‘morally correct’ members of his party, but he won’t pay them any heed. He’s too used to fending for himself anyways.
Mirai: The Summoner
Exiled from her own kingdom, the princess still lives a life where others do her bidding. Though, this time they’re undead. Able to summon her defeated foes, Mirai’s talent could have been greater if she focused her skills towards her own magic rather than manipulating others. But anyways, whatever keeps you alive.
Here’s a really long list of a ton of the more simple/generic AU’s I’ve seen floating around. I made this list for personal reference and figured having so many all in one place might be helpful to others, too. I tried my best to alphabetize but I can’t promise it’s entirely correct.

The boys: roles, jobs, armor types, and goofy ass accessories.
Weapons: Primary: Great sword Secondary: Sword and shield.
Traits: Shape-shifting into the form of a very very large bear. Makes him more durable (damn near unkillable), stronger, faster for short bursts, and generally not someone to be fucked with. It’s a mana drain and, if he’s not damn near topped off, he can’t use it. Takes at least a day to top back up after shifting.
Healing: He heals fast.
Big Guy: Roughly 7'8", built like…well, a tank. Is a big guy. ;)
Accessories: A bronze torc, with eagle heads at the end pointd, worn around the right forearm, he claims it contributes to durability/defense.
Armor type: Would wear heavy armor if he wore armor. Generally sticks to leather pants and plate armor manica on sword arm. Ignis has tried many a time to get Gladio to wear real armor but that’s usually met with ‘It gets constricting when I shift’ and Ignis has yet to master a spell to make magical armor shrink or grow with a person.
Weapons: Primary: Bow and arrow. Secondary: Knives
Traits: Eye of the House Cat: His race is naturally agile, have enhanced night vision, and an eye for weakness in enemies, and at least in the latter Prompto is no expection. It might take him a year to pick his shot but he won’t miss and he will hit something critical. Once he learns to shoot anyway.
Lands on his feet: See the above; his race seem to have inherent luck and an uncanny ability to wiggle out of trouble and always escape more or less intact from bad situations.
Accessories: A ribbon collar with a tasteful bronze bell. Gladio swears up and down its a defense booster. Prompto is skeptical
Garter, as gifted to him by Ignis. Seems to hold an unlimited supply of throwing knives. Prompto has choosen not to ask for details.
Camera: +10 to not losing his mind because Yay, hobby.
Armor Type: Uh. Hooker? No matter what a magical clothing item starts out as it ends up looking like something a tavern wench would wear. It’s a mystery, truly. He refuses to be happy about the corsets but the skirts aren’t so bad.
i spent too much time on this– so I’ve been toying with the idea of an RPG!AU! Despite the fact that I know next to nothing about D&D or fantasy/RPG settings… (fhkdjs blame my nerris muse for this…) The colours are in no way final, either. Preston gave me a hell of a time…
They’re all older as well! Anywhere from mid-late teens/early-20s. I have most of the cast’s classes and alignments sorted out; I would’ve started out with the main 3, but Max and Nikki are harder for me to nail a design for.
Hit me up if you’ve got some thoughts on this or would like to know about the other characters before I draw them!
I’ll put all my current headcanons for these 3 under the cut ↓
↓ (Classes are loosely based on the many from D&D, but I wanted to keep things flexible so m(_ _)m)
