Frisk confronts Sans in the judgment hall, but it seems like something is different this time around...


The Betrayal

In the beginning, Frisk and Sans are seen in the judgment hall, about to fight. Sans uses a bone attack, which Frisk dodges, but Sans then proceeds to kill Frisk, who resets. After killing Frisk once more, Frisk begins to flicker between themselves and Chara, all the while having flashbacks of previous 'pacifist route' timelines. Chara takes control of Frisk's body and fights Sans more viciously. Frisk then has a flashback to when they killed Papyrus, Sans killing them five more times afterward.

Frisk reappears at the load screen, and begins to feel regret for what they did. They reach for the RESET button, but Chara pulls their arm away with HATE and traps them, taking full control of Frisk.

Get Dunked On

Chara is back in the judgment hall with Sans, he feels the sudden change with them and the fight continues.
Chara fighting with Sans
with Chara in place of Frisk. Neither is able to kill the other, while Frisk has to watch everything happen through a wall of darkness. As Chara is about to kill Sans, Frisk breaks out of the darkness and takes the blow, asking Sans to 'fix their mistake, one last time.' and their soul appears in the air. Right when Chara is about to take Frisk's soul, Sans absorbs Frisk's soul instead. He then proceeds to open both his eyes, revealing that his right eye's iris has also turned blue. he then reveals that he has control of the SAVE and RESET buttons. Next, he kills Chara and resets the timeline and credits roll. This fact is known as the first glitch.

Listen and hear a song the birds are singing,

Sit down a while and watch the flowers blooming,

A pleasant breeze flows by leaving a trail of dust...

This is your fault right?

Standing in the corridor,

Who thought we'd be here like this together,

On a gorgeous day like this I ask,

What is it that you want?

I believe there was a time,

When we were pals and things were better,

Eating bad food, enjoying laughs,

Can we go back to that?

If you're in there listening, kid,

Just reset the timeline,

And please let's forget all of this.

Even after what you did he believed in you.

'Till the end.

Looking at your face right now,

That expression tells me I can't

afford not to care anymore.

Turn this path around, wipe your dirty hands clean,

Give up!

Please don't come back.

If you're my friend.


Listen and hear a song the birds are singing,

Sit down a while and watch the flowers blooming,

A pleasant breeze blows by leaving a trail of

(dust)How could you have done this?

Is there still a glimmer of hope?

Will you choose to do the right thing?

Please now, bud

If you're there

Have a change of heart

Listen and hear a song the birds are singing

Sit down a while and watch the flowers blooming What a nice day...
