Jerry is a monster that the protagonist encounters in Snowdin Forest. Jerry is unique in that it has no attack of its own, but instead causes other monsters' attacks to last 2 seconds longer than normal.
Jerry appears to be a monster shaped like a flying saucer. It has three dull, thick spikes on the top of its head, some black spots, very long narrow arms, four legs, two rectangular eyes on the widest portion of their body, and swollen lips.
Jerry's traits are similar to the stereotype "That Guy." Examples include profuse arrogance, disrespect, informal language, poor hygiene (licking its hands and sneezing without wiping), and ungratefulness. These traits generally cause Jerry to not be a satisfiable person in general, which explains why only the "Ditch" option is present. However, if the protagonist tells a joke in a battle where Snowdrake is present, it finds it funny and may even ask for more jokes from them, having equally positive reactions from more of their jokes. This satisfies it to the point of being spareable.
- Ditching Jerry causes it to disappear, but they return after two or three turns. Sparing all other monsters while Jerry is ditched ends the fight.
- Jerry can immediately be spared if the protagonist's LV is 8. The protagonist must kill Toriel and most, if not all of Snowdin to achieve LV 8 while Jerry can still be encountered.
- When Jerry appears with Snowdrake and the protagonist makes a joke, Jerry can be spared.
- Due to its high defense, Jerry is surprisingly hard to kill, and takes around nine hits to kill with weapons obtainable before or in Snowdin. However, Jerry can be spared on the Genocide Route without aborting the route.

- Jerry was designed by Magnolia Porter, creator of Monster Pulse. She also designed Monster Kid, Snowdrake, Ice Cap, and helped design Gyftrot.
- Jerry does not show up in the True Pacifist Ending Credits.
- The name 'Jerry' may be a reference to the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation, where Jerry is the character that everyone makes fun of.
- There is a bug that if Ice is complimented on the same turn as Jerry returns after being ditched, Jerry says what Ice would have if it was complimented while it still had its hat.
- Toby has said on Twitter that he thinks all monsters in the game are good, except Jerry.
- Although this tweet is likely meant to be interpreted as a joke, he may also be referring to Jerry's personality and mannerisms being negative and nearly irredeemable.
- Jerry's in-game function is that of a support member (e.g. Bard, Dancer), as its role is to bolster the offensive capabilities of other monsters.
- Ironically, while support members are usually considered welcome additions to the party in most RPGs, other monsters are shown to dislike Jerry's presence.
- Jerry itself, although acting as support, is very unsupportive of the other monsters.
