Undertale Trophy List Is Full of Gags and Trolling

Published: August 15, 2017 10:20 AM /


Shortly before Undertale launched on PS4 and PS Vita, the full trophy of the game was dropped, spoiling some surprises on how developer Toby Fox poked fun of trophies. Majority of the trophies are simply tied to story progression, while the rest involves picking up items and donating money.

As listed on PSNProfiles, the game has 30 trophies consisting of 14 bronze, 10 silver, 5 gold, and a Platinum. Aside from the existence of a new feature, the Undertale trophy list below is free from spoilers:

Fox could have handled trophies differently due to the game’s play styles and endings. However, in retrospect, the PC version lacked achievements as Fox disliked the idea of encouraging gamers to play a certain way. Hence, the trophy list mostly comprises of gags for doing simple tasks.

The early parts of the trophy list has a fourth wall breaking comment from Fox, saying “Don’t worry, I have lots of ideas for trophies,” which involves getting any item in the game. The last item pickup trophy prompts the statement “Help me, I’m out of ideas.”

Finally, the Dognation trophies simply test a player’s patience as donations are given 1G at a time. Nonetheless, all 15 Dognation trophies can be unlocked within 20 minutes. Players simply donate money to a dog who’s Fox’s avatar in Undertale, which can be perceived as Fox mocking gamers for paying developers to get trophies. Additionally, aside from trophies, there are no in-game rewards for donating in the Dog Shrine.

Similarly, Yoko Taro and Platinum GamesNieR: Automata poked fun at trophies and achievements. While the game had difficult trophies, all of those are purchasable with in-game money.

The digital version of Undertale launches today, August 15, for PS4 and PS Vita. Meanwhile, the physical version will release in late September 2017. It was released in 2015 on PC, and our review heavily praised the game if you want to read it here.
