The player character, most often referred to as Frisk, is the main protagonist of the 2015 hit indie title Undertale. Usually meant to be a hero, but if the player decides to do the Genocide Route, however, Frisk will become the villainous main protagonist of the route. They are the avatar of the Anomaly, with the Anomaly itself being the player.

Biography

Nothing is mentioned about Frisk's backstory prior to climbing Mount Ebott, making their past purposely vague, just like Chara. Reasons for climbing the mountain might be parallel with Chara's possible hatred for humanity/suicidal thoughts (its debatable) or may simply be the Anomaly controlling Frisk.

Asriel also hints that Chara's reason for climbing Mount Ebott was for a very indeterminate intention, but it was one that he pointed out in a saddened and depressive way, hinting that it may have been a suicide attempt similar to Chara, especially since any humans that scale the mountain are noted for disappearing, never to be heard from again.

In Undertale, Frisk is controlled by the player. While these actions are controlled by the player and, as hinted, Chara, it does not mean that Frisk is in the right for killing monsters, up to and including attempting genocide on them. However, it is still left ambiguous if they truly commits any of these act willingly, or it's all either the player and/or Chara making them do it.

Powers and Abilities

Determination Embodiment - Frisk has a red soul, which, as hinted at depending on the route you take, ends up slowly being connected with Chara throughout the story. They don't fill in all the blanks and it's more of the different various routes being able to try to have this powerful soul that keeps going much like in the Pacifist Route and Neutral Route, with various quotes encouraging Frisk to "Stay Determined", and talks about how Frisk is "filled with Determination" throughout various save points.

Indomitable Will - Frisk has the powers to be able to fight enemies and monsters, mostly after killing other monsters in the Neutral or Genocide Route where their EXP and HP get higher, making them more and more powerful.

Soul Manipulation - Frisk is able to control their soul and be able to dodge certain objects or fight moves from their enemies. Their soul can change to a different color and have a ability from certain monsters.

Companion Allegiance - Frisk, whether done on the Genocide or Neutral or Pacifist Route, has the ability to be able to have an alliance of some sort, whether it be all, most, some or one of the characters. They had a close alliance towards Toriel at the start after she saved Frisk's life from Flowey wanting to try to terrorize Frisk and steal their soul, possibly killing them. They have been able to create a type of alliance with Flowey and Chara or with some of the other Monsters on the Neutral, Genocide, or Pacifist Route depending on how many fans could speculate and see it through the various options.

Endurance - Frisk, as mentioned earlier, has the ability to survive practically anything with the power of Determination that keeps them going. When they die, they are able to get back from their last Save Point, whether it would be done in the Genocide, Neutral, or Pacifist Route.

Child Prodigy - Frisk seems to be really intelligent, knowing a lot of stuff, possibly guided through by Chara or the Anomaly as the story progresses. It is also possible that it comes from the other characters that guide them through certain puzzles as well, and would then would lead to the Anomaly and/or Chara remembering the stuff to be able to tell Frisk about it later on Route by Route done later on in the Timeline(s).

Temporal Reload - Frisk, with the help of the Anomaly or Chara, has the ability to reload save files, with the exception of the Genocide Route.

Event Negation - Frisk has the ability to navigate how the story goes based upon their actions, though it is debated that they can only do it thanks to the Player known as the Anomaly. A couple of exceptions are when the Reset doesn't work when you fight Omega Flowey at the end of the Neutral Route, since he briefly takes down the Save File, as well as when Chara makes it impossible to be able to escape from the Genocide Route and forces you to read through dialogue, with the only exception of Force Quitting the game and then being able to reload the save file or just reset the story as a whole. This leads to an ending with Flowey taunting the player for how cowardly they were by escaping their actions during the Genocide Route and mentioning how they knew what was happening and encouraging them to want to continue their actions as Flowey has been known to taunt the player into trying out the Genocide Route or Neutral Route by killing the enemies. Flowey tends to judge Frisk for the Monsters they kill and even mentions their names through the Neutral Route as a way of judging them similar to what Sans does, except in the Genocide Route, Flowey is more into the idea until the end, at which point he decides to back out and is terrified of Frisk, since they eventually becomes both more powerful and dangerous than even him.

Aim Dodging - Frisk has the ability, depending on the choices made by the player, to dodge certain attack movies from their enemies.

Knifemanship - Frisk can wield actual knives or knife-like items with exceptional skill, especially if a player chooses to take a more violent route.

Gunmanship - This is similar to the Yellow Soul in the Battle with the Omega Flowey from the game's Neutral Route where the game gets closed after the Asgore fight when Flowey kills Asgore and how Frisk fights Flowey. However, regular battles like the fights could have possible guns found and used through the battles.

Melee Weapon Usage - This has to do with a combination attack move that Frisk does. This is usually done in battles with regular monsters, but for some reason, not in certain boss battles from the Genocide/Neutral routes like Sans, Asgore, and Flowey.

Armor Usage - Frisk would have the ability to choose what item to wear that acts as armor, with him finding more and more resilient items that serve the function more effectively. For example, near the end of the story, Frisk could find and have the option to wear a heart-shaped locket from a room in New Home that was accompanied by a real knife to use as a weapon.

Trivia

  • The the reveal of Frisk's identity with their name greatly holds significance towards the completion of the Pacifist Route if the player has finished through the game defeating Asriel, it is revealed at the end of the Pacifist Route when waking up to the former antagonist Asgore informing the mute protagonist during the aftermath of their succeeded mission saving the Underground Monsters when being able to have the barrier destroyed by Asriel as he brought back the Souls.
    • This is a repeated dialogue used in the Game Over sequence when Asgore tries to wake up the player referring to them as the Player dependent name or Chara informing them that they were in a bad dream only for Flowey to say that the player is in a bad dream that they are unable to wake up from laughing as the game closes when in defeat from Omega Flowey.
  • Frisk is one of the main characters in the franchise to not have a confirmed gender asides from Chara, and variant other characters like the Underground Monsters who have little dialogue or information given, etc.
  • Frisk only qualifies as a villain if the player decides to take a Genocide Route, and to a lesser extent, some of the more negative Neutral Routes. Their villainous acts, as well as their type and status, are completely dependent on the player's choice, meaning that if the player chooses to do evil acts, so will Frisk. At least to an extent, this makes them a pawn of the Anomaly.
  • Frisk is Swedish for "hale".
  • Frisk and Chara share a number of similarities not just in their looks, but with their powerful abilities with the Determination, along with similar weapon choices and similar story origins falling down a Mountain for a highly vague untold reason that is almost put into more of a mysterious position that would be up for speculation by the fans and audience.
    • The Monsters would constantly confuse Frisk and Chara, such as Muffet and some of the other characters in the game thinking of a human with a striped shirt, along with Asriel comparing Frisk and Chara at the end of a Pacifist Route by saying the former reminds him of the latter and reminiscing about his memories with Chara during the past.
    • Chara has even pointed out a speculation questioning if they are a reincarnation of Frisk on the Genocide Route comparing Health Bars, Level Points and similar motives, depending on the route of the Player's choices done in the story's timeline.
  • For the Genocide Route, Frisk's role pertains more around Neutral Evil. Considering Frisk does the genocide route, they proceed to kill all of the monsters and boss enemies and merely wipe out the world only to want it back having enough of some remorse to want to sacrifice their own soul to Chara to get back the world running how it was before destroying it which Frisk could fit around Chaotic Neutral.
  • For the Genocide Route, the story will progress drastically with how the characters choose to react towards Frisk questioning Frisk for their human-less appearance not looking enough like one to Sans, and Papyrus not realizing that Frisk is a human right away, some of the many of the monster enemies being reluctant to fight Frisk or even redeem themselves like Mad Dummy in which the game would overall give Frisk or throughout the most part the player many chances to not fight the monster enemies.
    • Also, Frisk would have an expression of an explanation mark showing before the Genocide Route being pursued only for a smiling face to show up later on instead of an explanation mark showing a sadistic sense in Frisk when doing the Genocide Route. Though, many others could speculate it to be Chara doing the deed.
