Undertale is a critically acclaimed role playing game originally released for Steam in 2015, developed and published by Toby Fox. You play as a child who has fallen into an area known as the "Underground", a region lost to civilization which is heavily populated by monsters. Along your journey you'll meet and befriend monsters while looking for a way to escape Underground and return home. The game hinges on your decisions during combat, where you have the options to Spare or Kill monsters: your choices during battles heavily influence the story and the world around you.

Trophy-wise, Undertale is a very easy Platinum to obtain, as half of the trophies in the game are story-related and come naturally as you play. The other half of the trophies are tied to Donating to a shrine in the game, requiring you to donate a total of 350G to this shrine in order to unlock all of the related trophies. 350G is a negligible amount of money though, as enemies encountered in the later areas of the game usually drop 100s of gold each encounter. You can obtain the Platinum before you even beat the game! The only thing that can really be considered a challenge is learning how to dodge each enemy's "bullet hell"-esque attacks, as they can be difficult to avoid at first.

Patch 1.04: In the 1.00 version of Undertale the trophy Like Getting Items did not unlock for some users, while the other related trophies did. The 1.04 patch corrects this issue, so make sure you have it installed before playing.

General Tips:

  • Despite the Gold needed to obtain the "Donation" trophies, don't worry about saving up early in the game. Feel free to spend your Gold on equipment and healing items as needed, it can be tough to survive some battles early on since you'll have low health.
  • Since the type of playthrough you're going for (Pacifist/Genocide) has no bearing on the trophies, I would suggest killing most of the enemies in your path. In conjunction with the bullet hell attacks, figuring out how to spare each enemy can make the game more difficult than it needs to be in regards to obtaining the Platinum, especially since later enemies will require you to meet more complex conditions in order to use the "Mercy" option.

 


Step 1: Play through the game up until you reach Hotlands Floor 2, while sparing Papyrus

Since a good number of trophies are tied to reaching certain save points in the game, feel free to play through the game as you want. Nothing is missable so long as you remember to spare Papyrus during your battle against him. Continue playing normally up until you reach the elevator in Hotlands that will allow you to reach the second floor. Instead of doing that, take it to the first floor of Hotlands instead. At this point in the game, you should have over 350G to get the donation trophies; if you don't, then you can grind out the enemies here as they drop a good amount of gold.

At the end of this step, you will have earned the following trophies:

Ruins
Don't Worry, I Have Lots of Ideas for Trophies
Like Getting Items
Or Getting More Items
Help Me, I'm Out of Ideas
Mouse
Exodus
Manna
Midpoint
Rain
Final Stretch


Step 2: Donate 350G to the Dog Shrine, then return back to Hotlands and reach the Core

Take the ferry located south of the first save point in Hotlands to Snowdin, then return to Papyrus' house and go to the kitchen so that you can donate to the Dog Shrine (refer to Dognation Level 15 for more information on Donating). Once you've donated the 350G, return back to Hotland and continue onwards past the Second floor until you reach the Core. You only need to reach the second save point in the Core in order to unlock the Platinum - congratulations!

At the end of this step, you will have earned the following trophies:

Dognation Level 1
Dognation Level 2
Dognation Level 3
Dognation Level 4
Dognation Level 5
Dognation Level 6
Dognation Level 7
Dognation Level 8
Dognation Level 9
Dognation Level 10
Dognation Level 11
Dognation Level 12
Dognation Level 13
Dognation Level 14
Dognation Level 15

    Missable

    The Dog Shrine is a Playstation exclusive room added to the PS4 and PS Vita ports of Undertale. You can access the Shrine by sparing Papyrus during his boss battle. Afterwards, return to his house. Enter the kitchen and examine the kitchen sink; doing so will cause a dog to jump out and open a pathway to the Dog Shrine. In this shrine you can donate specific amounts of gold in order to add additional items to the shrine, and to unlock the respective trophies associated with donating.

    The catch to this is that you can only donate 1 gold per dialog, and only a certain amount of Gold per shrine visit. So for example, when you visit the shrine for the first time you can only deposit a total of 2G, and you must talk to the dog again to donate the second gold. From there you must exit the room and continue donating gold in the same fashion. On your fifteenth and last visit to the Shrine you will be able to Donate 70G; do so to unlock this trophy.

    You can make the donation process go faster by rapidly pressing and at the same time near the shrine. You should have enough gold saved up to donate to the shrine before you take the elevator up to Hotlands Floor 2, as many enemies in this area give out generous amounts of gold. Take the elevator back to Left Floor 1 and ride the Ferry back to Snowdin in order to Donate.

    Note: If you kill Papyrus you must reload your save, as if you kill him the location of the Dog Shrine will change to the garbage dump area in the waterfall section. What's more, you won't be able to donate to it, preventing you from obtaining the donation related trophies.
