Canon Underswap Wiki

Papyrus is the younger brother of Sans, and plays a big role in UnderSwap, made by P0pc0rnPr1nce.


Papyrus appears as a tall lengthy skeleton with a small toothy grin, skeletal hands and small eye sockets. He wears an orange hoodie, usually with "indirect text posts" written on it and green shorts with a pair of orange sneakers.


Papyrus is laid back and flippant, often fooling around on the job and taking breaks. His laziness is a combination of nihilism and apathy. He wonders if his indolence stems of from his knowledge that any progress he makes will be erased when the timeline resets. Conversely, he suggests that is knowledge could be "a bad excuse for being lazy." However despite this, Papyrus is more energetic than Undertale Sans.

Though Papyrus is usually agreeable, he can be serious in particular events. He is also observant; Papyrus reads the protagonist's expressions and can often know when they already done certain things. He enjoys playing pranks and the fact he entertains at NTT resort hints that he may be a talented jokester. He enjoys fantasy stories and loves to drink honey. He also hates making promises just like Classic Sans.


  • Gaster Blasters: Devices resembling a skull that Papyrus can use to shoot large beams.
  • Bone Manipulation: Papyrus has the ability to create and manipulate bones to his will.
  • Blue Magic: Papyrus can control and alter the effect of gravity on anything; he can bring an entity to himself or throw it.
  • Blue Attacks: Papyrus can do attacks that do not deal damage as long as the target remains still.


Chara (Determinant)[]

Pacifist Route[]

As well, Papyrus and Chara are considered as best friend when they first met. He does an 'old whoopee-cushion-in-the-hand trick' When they first met, Papyrus always pranked Chara, such as the telescope, hot-cat, and date (like UnderTale Sans)

Genocide Route[]

He hates Chara because they killed his brother, Sans.

Sans (Older Brother)[]

Sans is the brother of Papyrus. Just like Undertale Sans, Papyrus cares about Sans and doesn't want anything bad to happen to him. They share the same relationship as Classic Sans and Papyrus.

Asgore (Friend)[]

Papyrus and Asgore's relationship is close since they always share what they like. They make bad knock-knock jokes, and are canonically friends. Despite how Papyrus doesn't like making promises, he tries to keep Asgore's promise to keep Chara safe.

Temmie (Rivals)[]

Papyrus and Temmie hate each other. Papyrus caused Temmie's "Fair share of Resets". Temmie mentions Papyrus, calling him a 'Smoking beanpole'. Temmie and Papyrus always fight with each other, and Papyrus always wins after the argument or the fight.

Undyne (Friend)[]

Undyne is one of Papyrus’s close friends.

River Person (Possible Relative)[]

He also most likely shares the same relationship with the River Person as UT Sans does Gaster.

Gaster (Friend)[]

It is unknown if Gaster and the Skelebros are close or even talk. (Gaster is swapped with the River Person. In Undertale the River Person says, "Beware of the man who speaks in hands" and in Underswap, Gaster says, "Beware of the man who speaks with the ocean"




  • Papyrus speaks using lowercase letters, using the Papyrus font.
  • Papyrus smokes to look edgy. However, he does not smoke weed.
  • His phrase "You'd be dead from my hand" is played off of the original Sans' phrase "You'd be dead where you stand".
