Asriel Dreemurr was the first Monster to meet Chara when he fell into the underground. After a failed plan to free the Monsters, he died and was resurrected as a soulless flower. He is later given a soul with all seven traits, from Chara, near the end of Season 1, which returns him to his original form.

Appearance


Classic

Asriel is a male Boss Monster that has a goat-like appearance. He wears a green and yellow-striped shirt, with brown pants and dark brown shoes. His eyes are naturally green. When in battle, he can tap into his "Hyperdeath" powers. His sclerae turn black, his irises turn white, and a black face marking grows on his face.

When under HATE's influence, Asriel's irises turn pink and the black face marking grows toward his eye, showing his increase in power from HATE's enhancements.

God of Hyperdeath

Upon the manifestation of Asriel's God of Hyperdeath form, large horns emerge from his head. Additionally, an appearance resembling that of Asriel's battle mode, consisting of black face markings, white irises, and black sclerae, become prominent. The Dreemurr's body also transforms to bear a purple and golden cloak, as well as forming the proportions of an adult-like body.

Personality


Asriel is a kind-hearted pacifist who is determined to do the right thing. Much different from the soulless version of himself, Flowey, Asriel values his feelings and trusts them to guide his actions. Going as far as to bottle up any negative thoughts in fear that they would burden others, even if they are constantly eating away at him.


When corrupted by HATE, his empathy is removed and any negative thoughts he previously kept to himself are now unhinged. Due to his belief to follow his feelings, these negative thoughts become his driving force.

Powers and Abilities


Classic

  • Pyrokinesis: Asriel can manipulate and create fire that flashes colors of each trait. He can also summon flaming bullets that home in on his target.
  • Star Blazing: Asriel can summon stars from wherever he wants. This is typically used in the form of platforms or shields.
  • Chaos Saber: Asriel can summon a pair of white swords that, when combined with their fire magic, can ignite an explosion.
  • Shocker Breaker: Asriel can summon a powerful blast of lightning, the spot about to be struck marked with a square and an exclamation mark.
  • HATE Substance: In My Promise, Bete corrupts Asriel with the HATE substance, making him more aggressive and strong.
  • Refusal: Through unleashing the true power of Asriel's new soul, the Dreemurr is capable of refusing death, as shown in Hope, subsequently evolving his body into his God of Hyperdeath form.

God of Hyperdeath

Through either absorbing seven humans souls, or unleashing his soul's true potential through ways such as those demonstrated in Hope, Asriel is capable of evolving into his God of Hyperdeath form, which unlocks several unique abilities, as well as an extreme power boost.

  • Chaos Buster: Asriel summons a blaster that rapidly shoots out small, diamond-shaped bullets. It can also be charged with a rainbow beam that fires a powerful laser.
  • Hyper Goner: This attack appears similar to that of a Gaster Blaster. It sucks everything around it into itself and is Asriel's strongest attack.

History


Season 1


Your Best Friend

After absorbing all seven Human souls, including Frisk's, Asriel is able to confront Chara in his "God of Hyperdeath" form, wielding nearly infinite power.

Continue

With the help of the souls he absorbed, he saves Chara from HATE. As a final act, Chara gives Asriel the remaining shell of his soul as a vessel for the traits the latter had accumulated, allowing Asriel to remain himself instead of reverting back to Flowey. With this new soul, he is able to break the barrier without having to use Frisk's.

Season 2


My Sunshine

Due to the glitch that allows Sans to remember all timelines, Asriel feels the need to resolve past tensions between them. They both agree, despite having no justifications for his actions as Flowey, to move forward.

Dust

After spending more time with Sans and growing closer, an incident causes Asriel to suggest the idea of checking the AMD's cameras for a wider perspective of said incident. After discovering Betty was the cause, Betty enters and tries to take Asriel's soul, with Sans sacrificing himself instead. In anger, Asriel taps into his Hyperdeath powers, before ultimately deciding to escape and warn everyone else.

Do or Die

Asriel makes it back to the Dreemurr household, where he informs Frisk of Betty and the loss of Sans. Frisk and Asriel then both go to Gaster's Lab to inform Gaster and Alphys, where everyone eventually gathers to enact a plan. As a part of said plan, Asriel goes with Asgore and Frisk to defend the inhabitants of the school.

Love

Part 1

While fighting alongside Asgore to defend the school, they run into Toriel, who immediately gets angry at Asgore for bringing Asriel. Asriel watches in silence as the two of them fight, keeping his feelings to himself, before snapping at them.


Frisk, beginning to distance themselves, eventually shows hostility towards Asriel's pleas for his safety, and then even reminds him of his actions as Flowey.

Part 2

Asgore notices Asriel is feeling down and has a talk with him. Asriel has refused to answer any questions regarding his time as Flowey and as a result, has been bottling up many feelings.


Asgore brings up one of his greatest mistakes from his past, and how he constantly faces the consequences of his actions, believing that Asriel can too. This brings Asriel to confront the darkest part of himself that he constantly shuts out: Flowey.


Flowey criticizes Asriel for letting his emotions get in the way of true power, while Asriel takes a stand and insists that kindness is the way to go, and that things will get better if he stays true to those feelings. He ultimately decides that he won't shut the Flowey part of his mind away anymore, but rather work with it for a better future.
LovePt2 Asriel.png

Asriel seeks out Frisk, who is fighting Betty, and saves him just in time. Although his soul is taken by Betty, it's just the motivation Frisk needs to get back up. After the battle, Frisk comes up with a wait to save Asriel.

My Promise

When Asgore, Toriel, and Frisk come looking for Betty, they find that Betty revived and corrupted Asriel with HATE. Because of HATE's removal of empathy, Asriel no longer holds back the painful feelings he has kept inside for so long. Because of this, no amount of happy memories are enough to free Asriel. He then criticizes Toriel for abandoning Asgore and the entire Monster kingdom in the past, and hits her with a Shocker Breaker attack. Afterwards, he criticizes Asgore over the fact he killed the six children that fell into the underground. He tells his father that he'll show him how cold blooded he is, which he does by stabbing him in the chest with a sword.

Asriel then gets ready to cause more damage to his father, but Frisk comes in to save Asgore by knocking Asriel away. Frisk, Asgore and Toriel then flee.

Game Over

Part 1

Asriel is seen with Betty, overlooking the arena, at the end of the part.

Part 2

Asriel remains on the sidelines while Betty attacks the arena, only jumping in when Chara arrives.

Hate

At the arena, Asriel once again confronts his parents in battle while Chara fights Betty. The Dreemurrs then enact their plan to switch opponents. Chara goes off to try to save Asriel, while Toriel and Asgore keep Betty from interfering.

Animosity

Asriel and Chara fight in the streets until Chara pulls out a locket. This confuses Asriel because Chara was supposed to have destroyed it during their fight in the underground (Asriel doesn't know that there was a failed timeline where Chara didn't have a locket to show). While trying to figure out what's going on, good memories begin flooding back to him and the HATE begins to cover Asriel in an attempt to keep him from breaking free. Chara and Asriel continue fighting, but this time, Asriel is internally fighting the HATE to try to protect Chara. While Asriel prevents Chara's death multiple times, he refuses to let go of the HATE, knowing very well that it will just go somewhere else. He begs Chara to kill him while he holds it down.

Animosity Asriel.png

Instead, Chara takes the burden of holding the HATE himself, and with Asriel's encouragement, Chara is able to tame the HATE into what is known as Animosity. Asriel then goes with Chara to confront HATE, after Gaster kills Bete.

Hope

Asriel first appears with Chara in the city, standing against the opposing HATE. Quickly evaluating their circumstances, Asriel and Chara start to argue over the best course of action. HATE then notices a distracted Chara, utilizing the opening for a surprise attack. As Papyrus uses his Telekinesis to pull the Determination Human away from harm, Asriel steps in and quickly blasts the creature down the street with a fireball. Subsequently, Asriel agrees to evacuate the skeletons, stating that he'll return to Chara immediately after. Following his brother's agreement, the Monster Dreemurr summons a star to transport Papyrus and Gaster out of the area.

Later at the canyon, following the awakening of HATE's Determination form, Chara is slammed back as Asriel arrives and catches him just in time. The two brothers quickly give each other a look of relief, before refocusing on the enemy. As HATE awaits an attack, Chara and Asriel summon their blades, quickly launching themselves towards the creature. However, HATE is easily able to deflect the brothers’ attacks, eventually sending Chara launching into the air. The creature then leaps above him, charging an attack that shatters Chara’s damaged shield, sending him crashing into the ground.


HATE charges downwards with its broadsword to finish him, but Asriel manages to rapidly dash across the canyon to pull Chara out of the way just in time. HATE, with its sword remaining in the ground, concentrates energy across the floor of the canyon, forcing Asriel launch himself and Chara into the air. HATE quickly charges toward the two, forcing Asriel to defend. Letting go of his brother, Asriel summons his saber and charges toward HATE, only to be completely countered and slashed across the body. HATE pulls back its sword and proceeds to rip it into Asriel’s chest. As Chara and Asriel stare in horror, and the latter slowly begins to dust, he remembers how he attempted to save Chara from Bete before, and how he didn’t want to fail again. He realizes that he still had yet to accomplish anything since. Suddenly, Asriel’s soul shatters as Chara’s Determination fades, causing his Animosity to begin consuming him.


However, as Asriel is about to dust, his soul refuses death. Activating his true potential, Asriel shatters HATE’s sword. He then transforms into a variant of his God of Hyperdeath form. Before the opposing creature is able to react, Asriel grabs its face and charges an attack, blasting it towards the other end of the canyon. HATE rams into the ground, but immediately leaps back up, slamming its hands into Asriel’s. As the two wrestle for power, Asriel is able to push HATE’s right arm away, which is then dismembered by a Determination slash from Chara. Before HATE is able to retaliate, Asriel dashes behind it, utilizing his saber to slam it into the canyon ground. The two brothers then reunite on the ground, awaiting HATE’s next move. As the creature once again stands, it dashes towards its opponents with its sword. However, Chara and Asriel, utilizing a knife and saber, respectively, slam against HATE’s blade, effectively halting it. Chara blasts HATE back by charging an explosion within his knife, and Asriel immediately reacts in coordination, propelling a saber towards HATE, who narrowly avoids it. However, Chara acts quickly as well, and dashes behind HATE to catch Asriel’s weapon. Asriel then summons a star within HATE’s arm, restraining it. As Chara leaps upwards, intending to slash HATE’s head, it twists itself away and causes his blade to sever its trapped arm. Freed, the creature quickly twists around. It reforms its left arm, materializes its sword again, and slams Chara away. Asriel rushes toward HATE with a charged Chaos Buster, ducks under a slash intended for his head, and blasts the creature away. As HATE once again stands and reforms its body, Asriel summons an enormous star attack above the creature. It quickly reacts, charging towards the magical formation with its sword, only for Chara to slam through the decoy attack, his knife aimed toward HATE. The creature reacts instinctively, only allowing Chara to penetrate its hand, and ultimately be blasted back to the ground. However, this time, as HATE reaches the canyon floor, it is immediately sucked toward a summoned Hyper Goner. With all of Asriel’s magic manifested within one structure, HATE is unable to escape the force. It latches itself onto the jaws of the attack, desperately clinging for life. However, Chara utilizes all of his remaining magic as well to summon a massive quantity of Determination slashes. Directing the attacks forward, the powerful concentration slams HATE into the Hyper Goner, resulting in an enormous explosion across the entire canyon.

As Chara and Asriel awaken, the two notice HATE sitting in the center of the canyon, finally and slowly disintegrating from all the accumulated damage. However, before the creature fully ceases to physically exist, it charges at Asriel to take him down with it. However, Chara instinctively reacts, firmly standing in front of his brother. HATE halts its attack upon this sight, merely watching the ground, before shattering apart. Chara and Asriel stare together, momentarily perplexed, before chuckling in pure relief. Collapsing to the ground from immense exhaustion, the two agree to rest before returning to the city. As the two lay on the canyon floor, Chara thanks Asriel for being his brother and the two Dreemurrs cry happily together.

Much later, at a house near the outskirts of the city, Asgore is visiting the home for dinner and seats himself at a table with Toriel, who humbly allows him to visit any time. Meanwhile, Chara concludes a call with Ronan, who is supposedly attempting to recruit Chara for the district’s new Wizard Council. Toriel compliments her adoptive son, stating that he has grown significantly, and questions if he intends to consider the man’s offer. While Chara initially portrays unease, Asriel reassures him, promising that they’ll make the world a better place.


Hours later, as Chara and Asriel gaze at the night sky, Chara expresses his nervousness regarding the future, stating that he had never expected for him and Monsterkind to be living happily together again. Expressing immense guilt for his past actions, Chara questions if he deserves a good fate. Asriel responds, stating that if he believes Chara deserves a better future, then he should believe so as well. Chara uneasily accepts this. Asriel then expresses his optimism for the future, stating that he and Chara could live happily. Although Chara’s unease persists, he agrees, stating that, for the first time in an extremely long while, he has hope.


During the credits, Chara and Asriel are both seen happily sitting near the district's Wizard Council during the ceremony.

Trivia


  • Asriel's soul, being a perfect balance of all seven traits, is almost a Determination soul, but it doesn't fuse into being fully red since Asriel is a Monster. However, the capabilities and limits of Asriel's unique soul are entirely unknown.
  • Although Asriel's current soul is much stronger than that of any other Monster, he lacks the same experience with his magic.
