Tsunderplane is an enemy that appears in Hotland.



Tsunderplane appears to be a regular real world airplane wearing a mob cap with thin ribbons on it. Tsunderplane also has a faint blush.


It is fixated on the protagonist in a manner unswervingly modeled off of the "tsundere" character archetype for which it is named. It has romantic feelings for the protagonist, but refuses to admit it, and wavers between acting flustered, defensive, or snubbing in turns, unless the protagonist gets Tsunderplane's guard down.

In Battle

Appears With


  • Several planes fly horizontally straight from either side of the Bullet Board, dropping bombs. Once a bomb hits the bottom of the board, a vertical line of smoke appears that goes through the whole board.
  • Large planes fly from the top to the bottom of the board, leaving a horizontal-moving smoke trail.
    • In a turn after approaching, the planes will be surrounded by narrow green zones and the smoke trail will not move across the board.


  • If the protagonist uses the "Approach" ACT, its attack's airplanes will now be surrounded by narrow green zones.
    • Touching the green zone allows Tsunderplane to be spared. However, unlike other Green Attacks, this does not heal the protagonist.
    • Touching the green outline 4 times (if by itself) or 3 times (with Vulkin)
    • Touching the white part of the plane still causes damage.

  • It's not like I LIKE you. [Neutral]
  • Id... Idiot! [Neutral]
  • Hmph! Don't get in my way! [Neutral]
  • Human, I... [Neutral when spareable]
  • >_<... Human... [Neutral before ACTing]
  • Huh!? Y-you sicko! [Flirt before approaching]
  • Ah... is that true...? [Flirt after approaching]
  • Eeeeh? H-human...? [Approach]
  • B-but I never got to...! [Upon being killed]

  • Killing Tsunderplane will make it crash and explode like a real airplane, instead of turning into dust as most monsters would.
    • This death suggests that Tsunderplane is a mechanical monster, similar to Mettaton. It is possible that Tsunderplane is a ghost like Mettaton. However, it is also possible that Tsunderplane is an airplane-like monster, whose dust is hidden by the explosion.
  • The sound that plays when you can spare Tsunderplane is also used when you get a question correct in Mettaton's quizzes.
  • Tsunderplane, along with Jerry, is one of the few monsters whose Spare method differs depending on who is also present in that battle.
  • When spared, Tsunderplane's sprite will become smaller and hatless, and move to the top left corner of the screen.
    • If Vulkin is present after doing this, it will explain that Tsunderplane becoming small is intentional.
  • Tsunderplane resembles an Airbus A340-300.
  • Tsunderplane does not appear to tell the story of Asriel Dreemurr in New Home.
  • Tsunderplane might be a pun for "Thunder Plane". It also appears together with Vulkin that uses "thunder" attacks.
  • Tsunderplane can be seen in Hotland after the completion of the True Pacifist Route. It explains to the protagonist how it did not love them but instead was enamored with the concept of love. However, at the end of the conversation, it still says "Y... y-you i-idiot," leaving ambiguity on whether what it just said was true or not.
  • Tsunderplane and Napstablook are the only two monsters who reply to the text shown when they are checked.
  • One of Tsunderplane's attacks encourages grazing (getting close to a bullet without touching it), a mechanic that originated from the Touhou Project Series.
