If you look closely, at the start of the intro when it zooms in on the single thing for game theory, there’s Gasters face on the monitor!
Edit 1: across the intro screen, win dings font is everywhere for a sec
Edit 2: instead of the gerbale thing saying do a barrel roll, it’s gaster and the win ding font again
Edit 3: deltarune May take place before the monsters got shoved into a mountain, think for once matpat

I liked the theory that dantekris time show ツ mentioned. The theory is that the UnderTale world is simply a fantasy of Kris. The story that She and Asriel created. Why they? Because when we get into the dark kingdom, at the first saves the name is present before saving. In the same way, Kris in his dreams can make Bratty and Katty a friend instead of a quarrel, Alphys and Undyne are a couple. Also left the events more realistic (divorce Toriel and Asgor). And Undyne is so cool for her that she considers her a warrior. In the end, she could imagine what would happen if the Monsters lost to people, and did not stay on the surface. Ralsei may just be a fictional character, as Kris misses Asriel. About those who remained underground, instead of amalgamets. Kris could be friends with them and really didn’t want them to leave. If this theory is correct, then they died before Kris's invention (UnderTale). It turns out UnderTale and World of the Dark Kingdom just role-playing game. If you are interested in the theory, then let her opportunity mention The Game Theorists.

I’m actually wondering where’s the other humans? How did the dreemur family end up adopting a human child? Is it very far fetched that this is a world, there monsters reigned supreme and the humans were driven underground...?

Undertale is also a game.
Think for a sec, Undine is a hero because she's a cop, a positive role model, burger guy wants to be an actor, because he does in real life. Asgore and Toriel both act as some of the kindest characters because they are Kris's parents. That's why the locations mentioned with the Sans thing are the same, they are ripped from reality. Speaking of Sans he might know about the realities (instances of the game) because they played together one time. Also the character in Undertale just looks like a younger Kris, and Asriel Dreamer is just a "final boss" of sorts he's a kind of DM the appearance come from asriel himself in college. Finally, this choice is more thematic going with this idea of friendship, and pacifism. The ending makes sense as a stress outburst after losing so much.

Asriel Dreemur = serial murderer

Anagrams, man.

What if this is happening in an alternate universe where the monsters won the war and banished the humans underground! I can prove this in so many ways and one of them is the fact that asriel is still alive, if they won the war there would be no need for asriel to go to the surface and get attacked by humans. This also supports your theory to so... yea

If you look through the game files you can find how Ralsei's manual would have looked like if you could read it, and on the cover page it says below the title "My friends, friends 101, Ralsei's class, 202X"
In undertale there was a calendar for 201X in Toriel's room, so Deltarune probably happens after it, whether it's a sequel or not.
I hope that info is helpful!

If all this game isn't real then

If deltarune is an anagram for Undertale, doesn't that mean there could be other anagrams like Unaltered, Unrelated, Truelande, etc.?
Greg Warrener
delta rune is an anogram for undertale

Part 3. Matpat please finish
There are a few things that lead to Deltarune.

1. The clam girl. When you talk to her, she mention how we should meet her neighbor's daughter named Suzy. She later quotes, "In life's grand scheme, she might be why you came here in the first place..." In Deltarune it's spelled 'Susie' but it's like how Frisk's name is altered to Kris. In the epilogue, she says our meeting with Suzy is approaching. Then she turns grey and disappears with sprite labeled "spr_clam_goner" which might connect with goner kid who talks about alternate universes.

2. Because you've talked to clam girl, it changes what you see in San's Workshop. The first drawer has a photo of three people smiling with the words "don't forget" written.

3. Finally, there is Gerson's shop. If you talk to him about the symbol that is behind him, he mentions the symbol is called Delta Rune. The triangles represent the monsters while the circle with wings is the angel from the prophecy. The prophecy is that an angel from the surface will bring freedom. Lately others called it the 'Angel of Death.'
Matpat. At 13:33 you made a mistake. Yes it looks like Napstablook's house, but if you speak to the ghost, they say things like beautiful and darling, meaning that is not Napstablook but the ghost that became Mettaton. Remember Alphys in Deltarune was not a scientist so she never made Mettaton as she is a teacher.
