chara likes to kill for fun, too.

(undertale spoilers)

chara’s “perverted sentimentality” speech may lead people to believe that they dislike the act of murder to some extent, even at the end of the genocide route. that seems unlikely, however.

in truth, chara is simply perplexed by the player’s desire to keep around a boring world with nobody in it. with nobody to interact with and nothing left to find, chara makes it clear that “there is nothing left for us here.” the world is barren and “pointless” now that all options have been exhausted. when chara mentions that they “cannot understand these feelings any more,” they are referring specifically to the player’s choice to not erase the world: “this feeling you have. this is what i spoke of.”

as it turns out, chara is pleased with the player as long as the player agrees with them – that “this pointless world” should be erased so that the two can “move on to the next.” in fact, not only is chara content with the player, they go as far as to compliment them: “right. you are a great partner.”

so if chara isn’t berating the player for killing again and again in the genocide route end, what does this mean for chara’s view on killing? in particular, one of chara’s actions independent of the player stands out – their reaction to defeating sans.

if sans is killed but the game is reloaded to a point before his death, he’ll share some extra dialogue. 

after he’s killed once:

after he’s killed twice or more:

as chara is “THE ONE IN CONTROL” at this point, has just previously expressed their “creepy face” to flowey, and was the one to deliver the killing blow on sans, it’s implied that sans is speaking of chara’s reaction (rather than frisk’s). if the expression is similar to the one they recently showed to flowey, this face is likely a smile, suggesting that chara actually enjoys tormenting sans by killing him repeatedly with the help of the player.

furthermore, chara continues to encourage the killing of monsters in subsequent genocide routes: they still provide the save point kill counts; they berate the player if they fail to kill snowdrake; they advise the player to finish off the monsters in waterfall before reaching undyne; the exclamation mark above frisk’s head upon encounters still changes to a smiley face. additionally, when asked whether or not the player will erase the world, if “do not” is selected, chara will laugh while destroying the world regardless. (the soulless pacifist route also ends in chara’s laughter.) none of these things speak to someone who dislikes killing or being cruel.

there is even a statement from chara in the undertale demo that confirms their enjoyment in killing – when the genocide route is completed in the demo, the following is seen at the end:

in red text and in first-person, chara describes the demo’s genocide route is as “fun.” not only do they advocate and enjoy it, but they encourage the player to finish what they started in the full version of the game.

despite chara suggesting that a different path be taken on the next route, they show no resistance and will continue actively encouraging the genocide route once it is triggered. based on this, chara seems to enjoy killing in the genocide and soulless pacifist routes.

‘Lastly, Zarya’s Barrier abilities can block out Sombra’s EMP Ultimate and allow players to walk through her ultimate without suffering any Hack penalties. A blocked Sombra ultimate also grants full Barrier generation which makes Zarya’s damage stronger.’

Jamie Benn is basically the ultimate hockey player. My teammate Drew Doughty is one of the best defensemen in the world, so I’ll take his word above anyone when it comes to players, and he’s always saying how tough it is to play against Benn. He can do everything at a high level, but I think he also buys a lot of space for himself on the ice because he’s tough as nails. Benn will hit you. He will fight you. He’s not afraid of anyone. Sometimes the game plan against star players is to rough them up and see if they can take it. With Benn, forget it.
