Anticipation is the 7th track in the Undertale Soundtrack. It plays during any monster encounter while Toriel is with the protagonist. This song is also used as the bassline for Enemy Approaching. [1]

During a Genocide Route, this song plays during the short encounter with the Glad Dummy. Varieties of this song are playing in different occasions:

Trivia

  • Due to the particular events when it plays, the slowest version of the song is often associated with Chara and the Genocide Route, some fans considering it to be their "theme" of a sort.
  • During the walk through New Home, Anticipation fades out when the protagonist encounters Sans for the final battle. It remains silent even after Sans's defeat. However, if the protagonist leaves and re-enters New Home, it will play once again without interruptions until the protagonist enters the Throne Room.
