- For the Genocide Route counterpart and the item found at the beginning of the game, see Real Knife and Toy Knife.
The Worn Dagger is a weapon item found in Asgore's Home. It replaces the Real Knife when on the Neutral or True Pacifist Routes. Its defensive counterpart is the Heart Locket. It is the Neutral/True Pacifist Route weapon item associated with the First Human.
- Transitioning from the Toy Knife to the Worn Dagger might symbolize the protagonist's growth to maturity, seeing as the Worn Dagger is acquired at the end of the game and how the CORE enemies are the advanced versions of the Ruins counterparts.
- Seeing how it is wrapped in a present box, it can also be considered a gift to Chara as a birthday present, implying they have "grown" and are old enough to handle the responsibility with such a dangerous weapon in hand.
- It is implied that the Real Knife is the same as the Worn Dagger, but due to higher LOVE in Genocide, it is described as a weapon rather than a gardening tool.
