While you are in a FIGHT, strike up a friendly conversation.
Stall for time. I will come to resolve the conflict.
Practice talking to the dummy.


Anticipation is the 7th track in the Undertale Soundtrack and the 6th track in the Undertale Demo OST. It plays during any monster encounter while Toriel is with the protagonist. This track is also used as the bassline for Enemy Approaching.[1]

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


  • 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 plays once again without interruptions until the protagonist enters the Throne Room.
