Toby Fox’s Undertale hosts a wide cast of quirky and charismatic characters, but none can truly compare to the glitz and glamor of the Underground’s number one television personality, Mettaton. Encountered later in the game as a human-hunting machine, this vain robotic TV star faces off against the player character several times before their final showdown in the CORE.
Artist Alyssa Gerwig tried her hand at a rough storyboard-esque animation of her take on the Mettaton EX boss battle. This project is her first serious try at animation and took her nearly four months to complete, and the result of her hard work is a faithful and brilliant adaptation of Mettaton and the human taking center stage to “Death by Glamour!”
Give it a watch above, but be warned that the animated short contains spoilers to the actual battle.
