Undertale Walkthrough, Part Five: King Asgore Guide



New Home

- After beating Mettaton EX, head north, watch small cut scenes, and proceed into the Castle. You’ll eventually get forced into a familiar-looking house, past two save points. There are ‘battles’ from this point on, but they’re not actually dangerous to you.

- There’s a Key in the kitchen, and if you head to the bedrooms you’ll find a Heart-Shaped Locket and a Worn Dagger in the first, both good equips Get these, ‘cause on this path you’re really gonna need them. The second Key is near the end of the hallway.

- Use the Keys to get into the basement. There’s a loooot of walking and a looooot of talking ahead. Eventually you’ll find an elevator - it will return you to the beginning, if you really feel like going that way - and a lit room with a save point.

- Partway down this corridor you’ll meet someone familiar, and you will be Judged. This little bit is crucial, because it takes all of your actions and decisions up to this point into account. It might not affect the outcome much, but if you play this game again… which you should… be prepared.

- There’s another save point before the king’s room. If you go right from here you’ll find a straaaange side chamber that will hint at another crucial plot point. Oh dear. Inside is… another save point… and then one final one, I swear. Go through the final gateway, and, when you’re ready, talk to the king.

King Asgore, ruler of the Underworld. Serious fight all around.
Asgore

The big man himself. Asgore is an appropriately brutal opponent, and you cannot Spare him. This is a fight to the death. Asgore relies on a series of fire-based bullet attacks to do most of his damage, as well as the occasional swipe of his enormous spear. You can expect the following while you whittle down his health:
  • He’ll swipe fireballs at you from his hands. These will home in on you from multiple angles. Move from north to south and back again to send them veering off in the wrong directions.
  • He’ll create helix-like strands of fireballs. Watch the patterns and slide between the strands when they weave outward. Move down a few spaces to avoid the next strand and stay safe.
  • He’ll rain fireballs down on you, as well as cause them to erupt on both sides of the box. Stay near the middle when you can.
  • He’ll create an enormous whirl of fireballs. They travel in lines; try to follow the counterclockwise motion of the lines. (I suck at this one, to be honest. There’s too much going on.)
  • He’ll use his spear to slash you. Asgore will telegraph his attacks when his eyes shine, and will do so in order of his incoming attacks. If they’re orange, move; if they’re blue, stay still.
  • He’ll send in large loops of fireballs that shrink as they move closer to the centre of the box. There are gaps in the loops; watch for these and move into a safe spot.
When Asgore reaches half of his health, a few of his attacks - particularly the loops with the gaps - will increase in speed. All you can do is keep up your strength and improve your reaction times accordingly. On the off chance you still have the Butterscotch Pie, use it here - Asgore will recognize the smell, and his Attack and Defence will go down. (I discovered this totally by accident. God is this game good.)

Once you beat Asgore you’ll receive the option to kill or spare him. Regardless of which choice you make, the game will crash… and when you reload, the real final battle begins.

Flowey, god of everything and all-around douchebag.
Flowey

I knew it. This fight is, to be frank, batshit insane. Flowey turns into an enormous freak-beast, and will pepper you with attacks from all sides, constantly. There’s no RPG stuff here, just plain-out dodging finesse. It’s difficult to suggest what to do - and honestly, there’s not much point, because your hands will get the gist of the battle after a while. You’re going to take hits, so don’t worry about it too much. The Fight icon will also appear periodically; hit it, but it will barely do anything to Flowey.

The key here is to survive until the ‘breaks’. Every now and then Flowey will vanish, and you’ll face off against what appears to be a mini game. These mini games will give you the chance to hit an Act button, and doing so will create restorative items aplenty. Use these to survive until the next round. Do this six times and, after a quick cut scene, Flowey’s defences will drop substantially. Healing items will begin dropping out of his mouth regularly, and the Fight icon will appear all the time. Keep hitting it until he goes down. It’ll take a while, but your victory is inevitable.

It’s also worth noting that you really can’t lose here. You can die, yes, and the game will immediately crash, but when you open it up again you’ll be right back where you left off. Keep trying and you will eventually win.

The Aftermath

Once Flowey goes down you’ll have the chance to kill or spare him. Choose as you wish, though you get a teensy bit extra if you let him go. You’ll also get some ending dialogue from the characters you spared, and the fate of the Underworld will change depending on who lived and who died.

If you’ve come down this road then you experienced Undertale’s ‘Neutral’ play through. This is the game most players will see on their first trip, and it happens if you kill anybody. This includes random enemies. It also happens if you Spare anybody. The ending changes, but the basic results are the same, regardless of how you progressed. If you leave Flowey alive, though, he will hint at another option…

There are two ‘extreme’ routes you can now take, starting the game over from scratch:
  • The first is the Pacifist route. In a Pacifist game you can’t kill anyone. This includes random monsters. If you kill anything you get shunted back onto the Neutral route for the rest of the game. The Pacifist route features the ‘happy’ ending, and, to some, the ‘true’ ending. 
  • The second is the Genocide route. In a Genocide game you kill everything. If you miss even a single creature you also get shunted back to a Neutral route. The majority of the game is easier if you try out Genocide, and you'll essentially skip most of the bosses... but it also houses the two most difficult encounters in all of Undertale. One will make you rip your hair out; the other is as patently unfair as battles get. If you manage to beat the Genocide route you'll also permanently change the end of subsequent games, which is... harsh.
Had fun? Time to start over. Even if you go the Neutral route again, though, you probably won’t find the same game waiting for you. People change. Just saying.

    1. I found Asgore was easier to deal with by not moving around too much. Just focus on a tiny area around you and ignore the insanity erupting in other parts of the box, if you can.

      If you're still having trouble, go back to Waterfall and buy the special Temmie armour. It'll make this fight way easier, 'cause it grants a huge defence boost and will heal you a bit each turn. Costs an arm and a leg - especially since you need to send the Tem to college first, for... 1,000 g, I think it was...? - but if you've died enough times the armour will come down in price quite a bit.

    2. i died so many times on undyne muffet papyrus and mettaton. i dont think i'm gonna be able to survive a fcken pacifist route let alone a genocide route. i should have got the tem armour

      Delete
    3. Don't try to kill Undyne. First, get about 5 Sea Teas. This will help you survive. Then, fight Undyne. Use a Sea Tea once in about 2 turns, and try to spare her every other turn. When she turns you red for the third time, flee. Every time she catches up with you, just flee until you get to Hotland.

  3. i was able to defeat asgore after 2 attempts (after learning his attacks it got easier, same when i battled- and accidentally killed- undyne.) flowey... was a b*tch. just try to avoid his attacks when possible and avoid the soul attacks as well (which are waaay easier imho) and get the healing items as much as possible since you only get a few seconds. and then wait til his defense drops and get those green healing items and get that attack button when possible. eventually he'll get near dead and honestly it doesnt matter whether he lives or dies, but that's a spoiler ;) think i might do pacifist next

    1. flowey its easy ( not easy, thats why i dont put "very easy" )
      i died just then i have escaped the most attacks, and when the defense of him/her drops to 0( yea, the defense of flowey drops to 0) and u kill him/her, ( not with 1 hit ) u need to mercy her like, a LOT of times.then u finally end the game. F*CKING SH*T

  5. Some parts you can dodge, mostly the mini game like parts. But when he fires random stuff out of his eyes or vines the shoot out, or nukes and whatever, it's ok to get hit, but don't just stand there and take everything in. Just try to dodge them.

  6. I keep hearing people say they "accidentally" killed characters and monsters... How? I didn't even attack anybody on my pacifist run. Is there some advantage to hitting people you intend to spare?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If I remember correctly, enemies will automatically enter Spare status if you get their health low enough. I didn't try that, personally - seems like a silly way to risk a run when all you have to do is figure out the proper interactions to make the enemy go away on their own.

    2. I accidentally killed a Froggit at the very beginning by hitting Z too quickly trying to Act.

    3. I did that too. I accidentally hit the fight button and i killed a froggit

  7. asdfghjkl I think Asgore's wife was Toriel

    1. That is an extremely interesting perspective. It makes so much sense!

      Delete
    2. That was definitely my initial thought, as well. They even look fairly similar.

      Delete
    3. I actually figured Ashore was her son. I mean, she adopted you, and allowed you to live in a fully decorated child's room, giving the sense that she lost a child. And she knows that to leave, you have to take a monster soul. So by trying to keep you there, she is keeping herself from being lonely, allowing herself to be a mother again, and protecting her son.

      Delete
    4. That makes a lot of sense, if you think about it.

      Delete
    5. She IS, if I remember correctly - I believe Gerson specifically says during the pacifist/neutral epilogue that she was once the queen of the monsters.

      Delete
    6. Actually
      1. Asgore calls Toriel Tori
      2. it says that Asgores wife had left him after he declared war on humans and every human in the underground must die and Toriel is a really nice to humans and such and the old house where Asgore Asriel Chara and Toriel lived looked EXACTLY like Toriels house but in a different Color.

      Delete
    7. Plus if you look in either house, there are three chairs that appear the right size for the three of them.

      Delete
    8. The game confirms this during a pacifist run.

    1. If you're really struggling hardcore, go get the Temmie armour back in the Temmie Village. It provides the best protection in the game, and if memory serves restores a bit of health each turn. The lack of gold is not as much of a problem either, as you can sell things at the Village. You'll need to dish out 1,000 gold in order to even get the option for the armour, but once you do, assuming you have died maaaany times, it should be fairly cheap.

      Go back to the walkthrough for Waterfall. It'll show you how to get to the Village, assuming you've never been there before.

      Delete
    2. Ive noticed that when you die, its asgore that tells you to stay determined and where is temmie village?

  9. Ok now to be honest the only one i was struggeling with and died once on was Muffet. I dunno why but i seem to get flowey without dieing everytime.

  12. I was playing and everytime I confront Flowey after he kills Asgore, Flowey just get me at the last checkpoint, what do i do

    1. I`m not sure i have the same question but i think you reset but i think i laughed a bit after i tried to spare asgore and flowey said "you`re really pissing me off' since that`s more of a teenager term back to the point ya i think you reset.

  13. I load my old save game, expecting to replay the game, but then I see the title "Floweytale" and the file named "Flowey." I enter it and I find the black screen.
    Then I see Flowey and when he turned into the boss I was like HOLY SH**

  14. i fought asgore for 7 times and i dont know what to do know can someone tell me, I also fought flowey so

    1. Asgore is super easy. So is flowey, if you think about it. Memorize their attacks. Don't think about the entire box, thing about what's around YOU. That laser on the other side of the screen won't hit you, but that one right next to you? It will. After this you'll know what to do from there.

      Delete
  15. Sell off your worthless stuff at the Tem Shop and buy alot of healing items like Glamburgers. Use them when you're at one or two HP though.

    ReplyDelete
  16. The hardest boss in my opinion was Muffet. I gave up and reset so that I could get that goddamned donut and skip the boss lol. Asgore and Flowey were easy once you memorized their attacks and had Temmie Armor.

  18. Flowey's battle bases from fear of what he's become, if you're afraid and can't focus for shit, you're going to die. Just keep your eyes off him, learn the patterns and you'll be good. His first attacks are meant to make you panic, and it gets alot easier after the first save.

  19. i just beat mettaton so i guess now im figthing asgore

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hmmm, so I guess I HAVE to hurt Asgore a lot before sparing?

  21. The moment i realized i just spent 11 hours on not killing anything for forced neutral run, ugh. Welp temmie armor it is for true pacifist run...

  22. Did you guys kill or spare Flowey on your first run? Assuming you took Neutral path

    1. Well unless you are doing pacifist go back to the bridge area near where mettaton was then try to fight a monster and kill it it gets you gold and may level you up when you get gold go to the nearest place you can get food (burgerpants/burgerface) buy maybe a glamburger and some other cheaper food then go back to the fight and well you know what to do if your HP gets low

      Delete
  24. So if I am doing the Pacifist route all I need to do is restart the game and beat the game without killing anybody?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm so glad I got curious enough to try out this game. Games that make me rip my hair off my head with puzzles and battles are just my kind of game! I'm glad I finished my first try of the game in 11 hours, 17 mins, and 10 secs, hehe.

    But seriously, I think I missed a few things during my first try. I didn't encounter a battle with Papyrus, and if I'm not mistaken my friend also told me I was also supposed to have a battle with Sans. I felt extremely guilty when I killed Toriel and Undyne, tho (p′︵‵。)

    Oh, and can you actually buy things in the Pacifist route? Because as far as I know, sparing the enemies won't give me a lot of golds, which I don't think is a good thing since the boss battles are hella crazy. How do you guys solve this problem?

    1. Y u kill Toriel and Undyne?! ._.
      Well, your friend is kinda correct though, you have to had a fight with dear old Papy but when you reach Sans? Dude, you will feel that you are going to have a preeeetyyy baaaad tiiimeee. I ain't gonna spoil what it is though

    3. Sparing a monster will give you the same amount of gold as when you kill it.

      If you're struggling for money, you can infinitely buy cloudy glasses from Gerson and sell them to Temmie.

      You only encounter Sans in the Genocide Run

      You can't actually do a Pacifist Route after doing a Genocide route.

  29. "Regardless of which choice you make, the game will crash"...then I unistalled it... I wish I read this earlier. But I doubt this game worth 10/10 considering I feel no motivation to start over again.

  30. Eventually, Flowey asked me if I had anything else to do, and I just cringed and shook my head, realizing that I had nothing better to do than beat up pretend possessed flower demon bug cactus- what even is that monster. You know, this game started out as cute. Not sure anymore.

  31. For the people who HATE creepy things, I recommend turning off your computer's sound, putting headphones (optional) into a phone or something, and use your spotify or something playlist! Because.... I HATE the music when you fight flowey.... UGHHH
