|“||They started the genocide route, I'm just finishing the job.||„|
|~ Chara referring to Frisk.|
Chara is voiced by Lumisau.
|“||Do you really think I'd care for such a stupid thing?||„|
|~ Chara on "Continue"|
Chara's personality can easily be figured out as genocidal, though that is through their corrupted form. Being corrupted by HATE, Chara is unable to sympathize with others. A great example of this is when Chara tore off Flowey's arm in Your Best Friend and didn't show any remorse, as well as feelings of megalomania as they forcefully took the determination of the Amalgamates, Frisk, and the 6 human souls. They are not fully in the control of HATE though, as seen in Continue, where Chara cries over breaking their locket.
|“||And let me guess, you'd take my old place as some kind of very sassy ghost that would insult me every few seconds?||„|
Their neutral form is caring and sympathetic. Having a stable emotional level, Chara is able to feel emotions and pain. In My Promise we see that Chara has a grudge against Frisk for infecting them with their HATE, as well as refusing to cooperate with Frisk's plan before hearing that the timeline is in danger of being erased. Despite that, Chara still cares for Frisk as a friend where they are seen sobbing over Frisk's erasure.
During Megalomaniac, Chara appears as Frisk's controller, but later on, takes full control of them until Frisk managed to break away from the HATE prison. As shown, Chara wears a green yellow-striped sweater and brown shorts, similar to Asriel's, along with their hair, brown in color.
During Your Best Friend, The HATE starts to take over Chara. The left side of their body turns black while they have red eyes and a crooked red smile. On the other side of their face, they obtain a black sclera and a black crooked smile.
Presumably, centuries after the barrier was created, Chara fell into the Underground for reasons unknown, and was the first human to do so. Here, he met Asgore, Toriel, and Asriel. The Dreemurr family welcomed Chara into the Underground and eventually adopted him. Asriel and Chara were two very close adoptive brothers.
One day, both of them made Asgore pie. However, they misunderstood "cups of butter", as "buttercups", and used buttercups instead. This caused Asgore to get very ill. Through this, Chara then learned buttercups were very poisonous. For a plan to free monsters, Chara proceeded to eat buttercups, become ill, die, let Asriel absorb his soul, and cross the barrier.
Their original plan was to take six human SOULs from the Surface and destroy the barrier with them. When they got to the surface, Asriel laid Chara's corpse in the bed of flowers in the center of their village, as Chara requested. When the humans saw this, they thought Asriel killed Chara and decided to attack Asriel. However, Asriel refused to fight back, despite easily being able to and Chara's desire to kill them. Asriel went back to the Underground heavily wounded from the humans that attacked him. He then died, and his dust scattered across the flowers in Asgore's garden.
Abilities and Powers
|“||Do you know what black means? It's HATE And I have a LOT of it to share||„|
|~ While fighting Omega Flowey on "Your Best Friend"|
- Glitch Teleportation: Chara is also able to teleport to other places when they are about to be hit by other attacks in order to avoid them.
- Enhanced Skills: Driven by Hate, Chara's Determination leads them to focus on their priority and to make sure it's done.
- Reset Paralysis: Like Gaster, Chara is able to disable Frisk's ability to RESET.
- ERASE Button: Chara is able to build an alternate reset button that erases the timeline from the Universe permanently.
- Dagger of Souls: Using the extracted Determination of the other humans, Chara is able to alter their knife to accommodate the individual powers of the souls and use them for diabolical purposes.
- Special Hell: Chara can create a void or plane of existence inside a sphere built out of HATE which bends to their will.
- FILE 0: Glitches allow Chara to use an ability named "FILE 0", which allows them to manipulate their LV, HP, ATK, DEF at their own will.
- Armor of the Red: Chara can project a Shield of Determination, which has the ability to block almost anything and can create a sword of Determination.
- but it refused: If Chara manages to be extremely determined, dies in during battle, Chara can immediately return to the battle with maximum HP as if their soul had never been damaged. This event has happened once on "Your Best Friend".
HistoryFrisk's body and fights Sans effortlessly, until Frisk manages to break out from the darkened realm that closed them from doing anything. And that was at the time Sans was close to being killed by Chara.
|“||How cute... This will be interesting. We got a comedian, a traitor... and a "megalomaniac".||„|
|~ Chara while preparing to fight with Sans and Flowey|
Flowey pops out around the corner of an elevator wondering why they were taking so long, only to see Frisk being grabbed by Chara. Knowing Chara's intentions, Flowey flees to Sans, regardless of their hatred towards him, pleads for their help since even though they want the power themselves, they can't afford to have the power to reset in the hands of someone who craves the entire destruction of the Timeline itself.Then Sans and Flowey briskly teleport within the True Lab, where Chara seems to be harnessing Frisk's determination for themselves. Noticing the threat Sans and Flowey are, Chara places a Hate Shield around the extractor. Under these circumstances, Chara winds up calling Sans the "comedian," Flowey the "Traitor," and themselves a "Megalomaniac" right before shooting the duo. Sans, being able to dodge it strikes them with a homing Bone that slices through their cheek, landing a wound on Chara. However, as if it never happened, they wiped the blood off their cheek. With their demonic smile, strikes the ground and summoned their "Special Hell" attack. Sans teleports Flowey and himself onto an inactive Gaster Blaster above high grounds to counteract the "Special Hell." Then they teleport back, resulting in lack of energy, forcing Sans to take some time to breathe, making him more vulnerable. During the momentary break, Chara moves towards Flowey, blaming them that this entire situation is his fault alone, if Asriel went through the barrier and collected 6 souls, the monsters would have been free, this results in Chara having to say Flowey's words, "It's Kill or be Killed, after all." After the Determination Extractor completes its task, Chara proceeds to retrieve Frisk's Determination but gets wrapped around by Flowey's vines as Sans races to get it himself. Out of instinctual reasons, Chara cuts off their locked down arm and teleports away with the Determination, leaving Frisk weak.
Chara is seen near a newly created save file with their name on it, along with the LV dashed out and the flavor text marked as "* Determination." The episode ends with Sans and Flowey, discussing who can help, right after Chara's maniacal laughter.
|“||So predictable.. Isn't this hilarious? If you think you got any chance to win... you're wrong. I have... a small surprise too. Remember what these are? You never got to use all the DETERMINATION extracted in the past... I'm excited to see how long you'll survive. COME. =)||„|
|~ Chara while preparing to fight with Sans, Gaster, Frisk and Omega Flowey|
Knowing the severity of the situation and Chara's intentions, Sans takes a risk by using a lot of his energy to summon the "Wall of Gaster Blasters". It doesn't affect Chara as their soul refuses to die. Flowey summons his Hope Cannon to back down Chara's hate, although this works more and seems to be stronger than anything far imagined, Flowey loses his souls and is greatly weakened as a consequence.
|“||Shut up Asriel.... You don't understand anything, don't you? Do you even know why all of this started? That puny human you call a 'friend' ... Do you think I forced them to commit genocide? HA! Don't make me laugh. After doing the same 'pacifist' route over and over again, they eventually got bored... They did that on their own.||„|
|~ Chara addressing the truth to Asriel|
|“||Heh... You always were a crybaby...||„|
|~ Chara's last words before shattering|
During the situation of the battle, Chara remembers their past and the wonderful moments they had with Asriel and the Dreemur family. Bringing tears to their eyes only indicated that there was still hope for having the real Chara back.
Chara was enraged by Hate and went forward to strike Asriel until they saw the heart-locket the duo held onto since the beginning and their end. Though, the hate soaks deeper and changes their mind to destroy the locket after claiming that it was pathetic.
Asriel tells Frisk to summon the other souls, by calling for "A Little Help." After each soul helps weaken Chara, Asriel takes the risk to do the one thing Chara would have never expected them to do: hug them, breaking away the Hate and tearing away the Determination in the process. Chara loses their Determination but as their dying wish, they give away their soul to Asriel as a host to contain the other souls for Asriel. At last, they depart the soul stating Asriel was always a crybaby.
Originally, Chara was thought to be dead, but Camila debunked this by answering a question, saying that Chara is trapped in the void.Bete confronts Sans and Asriel. Bete talks about how Asriel's soul is special and that they could feed it to Akumu because it was hungry at the time. Asriel tells Bete to stay away, however, Bete casts an illusion on Asriel and makes them see Chara.
Asriel is unable to move after seeing his best friend, Sans tells Asriel to move because he is aware that Bete was just fooling Asriel. But Asriel is unable to hear Sans, Bete then gets ready to claim Asriel's soul and throws their spear at him. By then, Asriel breaks out of the illusion and then Sans teleported in front of Asriel to save him at the cost of his own life.Frisk was confessing their mistakes to Asriel. Frisk talks about how the HATE was never supposed to take over Chara since that was caused by the glitches in the timeline, and almost everything in Season 2 is not supposed to be happening. In any worst-case scenario, Frisk would just RESET causing all the glitches that are happening in the timeline, Chara was furious with Frisk because they were pushing the timeline to its limits with no consequences so far. And how Frisk threw the HATE onto Chara causing them to return; blinded by HATE. In Part 2, they appear as a hallucination. Bete was making Frisk lose their determination by casting several hallucinations on them. The hallucinations were mainly focused on their Genocide/No Mercy route when they killed Toriel and Papyrus. After that, Chara appears, shattering (This is supposed to be reflecting Chara's death in Continue.) This makes Frisk lose a lot of their determination. (Camila mentioned that this was because people thought Chara was a bad person, but in reality, Frisk is to blame.) Chara makes another short appearance when Asriel joins Frisk's fight with Bete. Asriel remembers Sans and Chara. He mentioned that he can't let defeat happen, not again.
|“||STOP!!! I DON'T WANT TO FORGET YOU||„|
|~ Chara sobbing over Frisk's complete erasure from the timeline.|
|“||Maybe...You'll have a better chance now||„|
At the beginning of the episode, Chara says that they need to get something from Asriel's room, and that they'll go back to the city once they do. Chara enters Asriel's room then opens a cabinet shelf to find Asriel's locket and a picture of them with Asriel, Toriel, and Asgore. Chara picks up Asriel's locket and brings it with them while going back to the city to encounter Asriel.Asriel attacks Chara while Chara defends themselves from Asriel's attacks. Chara then realizes that Asriel won't listen to them then they show Asriel his heart locket, Asriel commented that the locket was his and he asks Chara where was theirs. Asriel then remembers that Chara broke their locket. Out of anger, Asriel stabs Chara in the chest with a chaos saber. Chara is heavily wounded by the attack and end ups dying slowly, their soul shatters then they are sent to the Game Over screen. The timeline starts to erase itself while Chara watches all the screens that contained memories disappear, Chara stated that they needed another chance. Chara reaches over to one of the screens then they entered the screen before their entire body could get erased. Chara sees Asriel sleeping on a table, they enter the room through the window, their body slowly starts to disintegrate then they put a blanket over Asriel. Chara then puts Asriel's locket on top of the cabinet nearby, this causes two lockets to exist at the very moment. Chara then starts to cry leaving tears on the locket, then they ask themselves if this is all they can do and that they should've done more. Chara then gets erased.
After timeline 2 loaded, Chara wakes up. Toriel is seen in Chara’s bedroom and talks to Chara about how it’s “like it’s been forever since I saw you”.
Chara is then seen leaving the house.
Chara is seen with Asriel's locket after Asgore tells Mettaton of the fate of Alphys. Asgore notices Chara seems worried, so he asks what is wrong. Chara says that he has a feeling that something is going to go wrong and worries that Asriel won't listen to him. Asgore reminds Chara that he and Asriel were not just brothers, but best friends with evidence of their locket, and tells Chara that he and Toriel will be there. Chara thanks Asgore as the discussion eased his worry.
Chara appears after Mettaton's battle with Bete Noire ends. As Chara runs in with a sword, Bete tries to flee from him, but Mettaton is still holding onto her leg. This gives Chara an opportunity to strike Bete, which he takes by whacking her with his sword. As Bete gets slammed into the wall, Chara asks how everyone is, showing concern for his friends. Chara notices Bete getting up, to which he yells at her to stay down. A beam of light appears from his sword, aiming directly for Bete. As it's about to hit her, Asriel jumps in, deflecting it. Chara appears upset seeing his best friend under Bete's control. Chara readies his sword, prepared to battle.
Chara's appears at the final scene of the episode where Bete talks to him about her plan. He is then also seen with a knife and sword at the last few seconds of the animation.

“ NO ONE NOTICED FROM SEASON 1: Chara went after the amalgamates not some monster in Hotland not some monster in Waterfall but specifically for the amalgamates. Chara could've gone to kill Undyne as well and could have gotten infinite DT but from the entire underground the ones that would cause less guilt to kill were also the amalgamates. Hate wasn't in full effect yet and Chara still felt guilty since those were the only choices they had of course. Later on, they went on and they successfully killed Sans and Frisk, since Frisk deserved it and for Sans as it is because of the last timeline but Chara could've killed Gaster and Flowey many times and they didn't, they weren't trying to kill not if it wasn't necessary they just wanted to reset the timeline. Chara didn't kill Frisk in *Determination because the file has to be with a valid name before resetting so it can be a successful Reset so they took control of it first and then tried to Reset. „ ~ -Camila during a Twitch broadcast on July 26, 2017
