Also Known As:
Mettaton is a robot with a SOUL and was built by Alphys. Initially an
entertainment robot turned human killing robot, Mettaton is later revealed to
have only acted as such so that Alphys could rescue the Frisk, so she could feel
important and become closer to them. Mettaton is the sole television star of the Underground.
Mettaton originally appears as a gray, large rectangular box with a grid of
lights at the top. The grid of lights can change colors, and Mettaton uses these color
changes in place of facial expressions. He has four dials at the bottom of
his body, and the bottom, he has a single leg which ends in a wheel. He has two
segmented robotic arms which end in white gloves.
Mettaton is a confident, charismatic, and charming TV host that loves drama,
action, and violence. He lives for his ratings and adores performing.
He shows a rather shallow appreciation for existence at times. However, despite his
narcissistic personality, he deeply cares about the seemingly positive
impact his show has had on the creatures of the Underground.
