A Familiar Theme |
|Voice Actor||Oolay Tiger|
Toriel Dreemurr was the former queen of the monsters. After the death of her two children, she abandoned the kingdom and went to live in the Ruins until the Barrier was finally destroyed in Continue. After returning to surface, she became the principal of a school for children, which trains them in the arts of magic and soul traits.
Toriel is a Boss monster with a goat-like appearance. She has rather tiny horns, a snout, floppy ears, white fur, and brown eyes. She wears a long purple robe with grey sleeves that has the Delta Rune located on her chest. This is expected since the Delta Rune is the official sign of the Underground royal family.
The outfit she wears at her school has undergone some changes throughout the series. At the beginning of My Sunshine, her uniform was a long blue robe with long lavender sleeves. She was also seen wearing reading glasses. Later in the episode and in the rest of the series though, she doesn't have her reading glasses and her uniform is instead a long, light blue robe.
Toriel is known to be overprotective, as seen with the kids and Frisk in Season 2. She's really caring and affectionate with them, although she still holds a grudge against her former husband, Asgore. She's also very sensitive, being really impacted when Asgore reminds her of her mistakes.
She can't let go of her past: not forgiving herself for her mistakes, while not forgiving others and tends to run from consequences constantly. As the season progresses, she improves her behavior towards Asgore; however, the dreading feeling and anger she held deep inside herself due to his actions back in the underground never dissipated from her mind.
Powers and Abilities
- Pyrokinesis: Like her former husband and her son, Toriel has the ability to create and manipulate fire.
- Healing: Toriel is capable of healing her allies, in case they get injured. Examples of this is My Promise and Hate, when she heals Asgore.
Toriel has a minimal role in this episode. She is seen watching as the gigantic black ball of HATE is destroyed, with Asriel and Frisk coming out alive. She and Asgore are seen crying tears of joy upon seeing Asriel again.
Toriel was also seen watching the Surface's sunset, along with Frisk, Sans, Asriel, Asgore, Undyne, Alphys, Gaster, and Papyrus.
During the episode's first few scenes, Toriel appears with some of her students when Frisk mentions he is proud of Toriel becoming a teacher.
Toriel apologizes, assuming she said something to upset Jessica, but Frisk dismisses it. She then introduces herself to Bete, meeting Akumu accidentally when it lunges out, almost harming Toriel as it thinks Bete is in danger. Toriel then tells Frisk to check on Mrs. Grey and that she will talk more with Frisk and Bete later on.
Later, her former husband is put on trial, but Toriel doesn't seem to be present.
After Robin saves both Cam and Abigail from one of the pink creatures, Toriel thanks Robin for being so brave and tells her and the other children to find a safe place as she creates a fireball and prepares to protect the remaining children.
In this episode, Toriel is seen fighting some pink creatures, defending Robin and Lily this time. She confronts a creature that is too huge for her magical capabilities and she becomes frightened. Soon, however, Asgore saves her by firing one fire shot at the creature. Despite Asgore's help, she begins to get angry at Asgore for bringing Asriel to school, saying Asriel could be hurt or killed. Frisk soon appeared, and Asriel offers to help him, causing Toriel to get angry at Asriel as well.
She first appears to check on a crying Asriel, who was insulted by Frisk, is attempting to cope with the deaths of those around him, and the traumatic events that are happening to him in general. She soon brings a sandwich to Frisk, with the various food in the sandwich arranged in a smiley face, but he coldly tells her to knock on the door next time.
During Frisk's battle with Bete, she makes Frisk see an illusion of his terrible actions during the genocide route. The first part of the illusion shows how he mercilessly slashed a knife across her torso.
After the battle, Toriel appears along with her husband, witnessing Sans' revival, and uses her healing magic to attempt to heal Sans. She informs her allies that Sans is alive and well, but in a coma and may not wake up.
After the events of previous episode, Toriel, Asgore, Gaster, Papyrus, Sans, and Frisk come back to the house. When they arrive, they meet Undyne (reactionless due to the whole situation) and an injured Jessica. Without a hesitation, Asgore attacks the blob who harming Jessica and Toriel immediately starts healing her.
The scene after has the Dreemurrs, Undyne, and Frisk, discussing what has happened in these times. Gaster arrives not too long after and they start to plan something to deal with the whole issue. The Dreemurrs and Frisk are assigned to take care of the arena, while Undyne takes care of the school. An explosion interrupts the conversation, making them act and go after Bete.
Toriel enters Chara's room as soon as he wakes up. Toriel looks surprised, then hugs him saying how much she missed him, even though they supposedly weren't apart for long. When Asgore shows up, Toriel asks Chara what he and Gaster were doing and also how Chara will save Asriel. When Asgore offers to help Chara, Toriel agrees.
Toriel later calls Jessica, and asking if they feel better, saying her clothes fit her perfectly, with a laughing smile. While Jessica hopes not to be seen again, Gaster and Papyrus come in.
Toriel witnesses Gaster and Papyrus briefly fight. After all the commotion, Toriel asks Papyrus if he'll be okay.
Toriel is seen healing Grillby's wounds after Mettaton fights Betty. She is also seen in the final scene preparing a fire attack.
Toriel appears along with Asgore and Chara in the stadium, battling against Bete. Chara tells Toriel to switch her attack towards Asriel to block him inside the firewall in order to prevent him from being injured from the attack. Chara attacks Bete and then throws Asriel away from the battlefield in order to switch opponents with his parents. Bete then gets impaled by Asgore's trident, and surrounded by Toriel's fire magic.
Toriel then snaps out of the illusion, and realizes the damage she has done to Asgore. Even Bete is surprised, mentioning that she didn't expect a strong hit like this from Toriel and asking if she really hated him that much.
As Flowey talks to Chara about Asriel, he holds a photo containing Toriel, Asgore, Chara, and Asriel. Soon after, she's seen again in a flashback Chara was having when describing what Asriel had done for Chara and how he helped him learn what hope can do.
Just as Bete attempts to behead Toriel, her arm gets ripped off by Gaster's blue chroma and Bete gets blasted by his orange chroma. Then, Gaster comes and attempts to blast Bete with six red chroma hands, but only one lands and Bete blocks it while escaping through one of the holes that one of his attacks created.
After this happens, Gaster looks over at Asgore worriedly and Toriel asks Gaster where he's going. This, of course, prompts Gaster to merely respond that she can do more for him and asks Toriel, for the sake of Asgore, to pretend that she cares about monsters this one time, which shames Toriel.
She then adds that she had only recently recognized that he had acted exclusively upon the betterment of his kingdom. However, to Toriel's surprise, Asgore merely responds that nothing could've broken the bond that they had formed over their lives together, and apologizes for his own past actions. He states that losing everything he had loved most had provoked an immensely dark mentality. As Toriel attempts to dissuade Asgore's apologies, the male Dreemurr interrupts her, stating that he had never stopped loving her. He elaborates, explaining that he is aware the scars of their pasts will require a great duration to heal, but states that he desires to act as a friend to Toriel, helping her through her own struggles.
During the aftermath, Asgore is seen at Toriel's home, thanking her for being invited, to which she responds that he is always welcome. The two then notice Chara concluding a call with Ronan, of which Toriel questions. Chara responds that Ronan had been requesting his service within the district's new Wizard Council, to which Toriel reacts understandingly, stating that the Determination child had grown greatly, and subsequently asks if Chara will consider the offer. Chara momentarily expresses an uneasy glance, before being reassured by Asriel that the two will make the world a better place.
- There was an acting clip made in between Dust and Do or Die that demonstrated what the cast wanted to say "given current events" revealed a snippet from her. In the snippet, she said: "Sans, no, no, you can't be d-...I..." before crying and yelling Sans' name. The voice-acting video has been deleted, however.
