This is a SAVE point. It's the manifestation of your own DETERMINATION.
Undertale Demo instruction manual

A SAVE Point is a place where the protagonist can SAVE the game. Interacting with a SAVE Point fully restores HP and usually expresses the protagonist's current thoughts and determination.

On the Genocide Route, SAVE Points instead indicate the number of monsters left in an area. When all monsters in an area have been killed, the message becomes "Determination.".

List of SAVE Points


  • Ruins - Entrance (room 6: room_ruins1)
    • The shadow of the ruins looms above, filling you with determination.
  • Ruins - Leaf Pile (room 12: room_ruins7)
    • Playfully crinkling through the leaves fills you with determination.

    • Knowing the mouse might one day leave its hole and get the cheese... It fills you with determination.
      • Looks like cheese has a nibble taken out of it. [True Pacifist Ending Epilogue]

On the Genocide Route, all Snowdin SAVE Points read "That comedian..." after arriving in Snowdin. The comedian is not Sans, as some mistake it to be, but Snowdrake, as confirmed by SAVE Points when sparing him: "The comedian got away. Failure." If the protagonist reaches Papyrus and defeats him without exhausting the kill count, the SAVE Points return to their usual state and a Genocide Route is aborted.
