Sans, everyone’s favorite skeleton who lives in a crumbling time-warped castle and enjoys making puns. He’s a bone daddy if there ever was one. And now he has his own song! It’s called “Necrobutcher,” and it might play when you fight Sans. I’m not sure how to activate the song myself, but here is what I know about it so far:
1) The song is by Leo3375 on youtube
2) You can download the song as an mp3 file from this website (link goes to a website with downloading instructions)
3) It has been viewed over 2 million times on youtube as of now
I had never heard about the song until I saw this Reddit post on r/Undertale. Apparently, some people think it plays when you fight Sans? It’s a really catchy tune and has been viewed over two million times just in the past few weeks. The video game blog Kotaku also posted about it today! If anyone knows how to activate the song for me or if there are any other resources out there, please let me know!
The song is called “Necrobutcher: The Song That Might Play When You Fight Sans” and it’s from the youtube channel Leo3375. It was uploaded in July of 2015, but has been watched over two million times just this past month! I found out about it because a Reddit user posted about how they thought the song played when you fight sans on r/Undertale. There currently isn’t much information available for what triggers the song to play with most findings saying that nothing will happen if you try playing it yourself (although there are some suggestions). Kotaku also discussed this topic today which might be due to their article being sourced by other websites after being published earlier last week.
It would appear as though it’s just a song that someone made, and they uploaded it to youtube for fans of Undertale. The song itself sounds like an atmospheric track with some synths added in there for good measure.
I’m more curious about how people found out about the song though than what triggers it because I couldn’t find anything on the topic myself! It would be really neat if this was something you could trigger by doing certain things or having a certain sequence of events happen while playing (like triggering Sans’ battle theme when he appears), but it seems unlikely given the lack of information available.
The only other piece of information is that “Dummy!” is repeated over and over at brief intervals throughout the entire song which might have been done deliberately or it may just be a coincidence.
My best guess is that the song could play when you fight Sans in Undertale, but I have no way of testing this since I can’t find anything about where the song comes from (I looked everywhere including looking up information on Toby Fox, the developer). It would also be really neat if there was some sort of trigger-able event to get different songs or even an entire soundtrack for fighting sans! But again…no solid info.
(Update: the song is by Toby Fox and it’s called “Necrobutcher”)
I did some more digging, but I still haven’t found anything about where this song comes from. The only two pieces of information I know are that (a) it may play when you fight Sans in Undertale since there seems to be no other place for it to go, and (b) one theory says that “Dummy!” might have been repeated over and over because of a bug or an intentional joke on behalf of Toby Fox, the developer. Even though we can’t really test either statement given our lack of solid evidence, my best guess would be that if there is any sort of trigger-able event used to play this song, then it might be found in the Ruins.***
The song that might play when you fight Sans is called “Necrobutcher: The Song That Might Play When You Fight Sans” and it was uploaded to YouTube on October 11, 2016. It has over 4000 views as of now and I have listened to the whole thing many times in order to study how it sounds like. If this doesn’t sound appealing enough already headband onto Youtube for the full experience!
