"Greetings!

I am ANNOYING!

ANNOYING the DOG!

But, you can call me TOBY."
– Toby in The Ruins of Home

Toby Dog is the first major character that the protagonist encounters in Changedtale. Toby serves as the main antagonist for the majority of the game, specifically the Neutral and True Pacifist routes. He provides an introduction to the mechanics of encounters by sharing "friendliness parks," which are actually harmful barks, revealing his philosophy of "KILL or DIE."

Profile

Appearance

Toby is a small, white, smiling dog.

Toby can contort his face to show various expressions and can mimic the faces and voices of other characters. He mimics Frisk and Monster Kid in some situations, as well as his old self at the end of the Genocide Route. He also mimics the protagonist's face before the Neutral Route's final battle.

Personality

Initially, Toby operates under a façade of friendliness and politeness. He greets the protagonist with "greetings!", calls himself "your best dog," and, like his father, appends polite words such as "gosh" and "golly" to the ends of his sentences. Whenever he drops this guise of friendliness, he often calls the protagonist an "moron."

Toby has a malevolent and cruel disposition, berating the protagonist for not following his "Kill or Die" philosophy. Despite this, he also criticizes the protagonist at the end of the Ruins if they killed any monster. He is manipulative, devious, and a cunning planner and subtle if the circumstances require it. He retains his memories between SAVEs because he was once able to SAVE. He is also shown to be extremely cowardly, as he kills his former father to appease the protagonist in a vain attempt to save his own life in the Genocide Route's conclusion.

Main Story

The Ruins of Home - Start

At the start of The Ruins of Home, he shows the protagonist their upside down, red, determination SOUL.

He explains how LV, HP, ATK and DEF all work.

He tells you to run into his 'friendliness barks'.

  • If the protagonist dodges three times, his friendly act slips and he hypocritically snaps at the protagonist for toying with him.
  • If the protagonist runs into them, he calls you an idiot and tries to kill you.

The Ruins of Home - End

He judges the protagonist depending on actions.

If The Protagonist Spared Frisk

(If they have earned EXP)
  • Clever. Verrrryyy clever.
  • You think you're really smart, don't you?

  • You spared the life of a single person.
  • Froggit, Whimsun. Vegetoid, Loox. Migosp, Moldsmal.

  • Somebody is dead because of you.
(If they have not earned EXP)

  • You didn't kill anybody this time.
  • But what will you do if you meet a relentless killer?
  • You'll die and you'll die and you'll die.
  • Until you tire of trying.

  • Or will you give up entirely on this world...
  • ...and let ME inherit the power to control it?
  • I am the prince of this world's future.
  • Don't worry, my little monarch, my plan isn't regicide.

  • I'll be watching.

If The Protagonist Killed Frisk

(First time)
  • I hope you like your choice.
  • After all, it's not as if you can go back and change fate.
  • In this world, it's kill or be killed.
  • That old hag thought she could break the rules.
  • She tried so hard to save you monsters.
  • But when it came down to it...
  • Hee hee...
  • FRISK COULDN'T EVEN SAVE THEMSELVES.
  • WHAT AN IDIOT!!
(Second time)
  • Ha ha ha ha ha...
  • You disgusting animal.
  • You didn't even TRY to spare them.
(Subsequent times)
  • Wow, you really can't get enough.
  • You kind of remind me of myself.
(If Frisk was spared before)
  • Wow, you're utterly repulsive.
  • You spared her life...
  • Then you decided that just wasn't interesting enough for you.
  • So you murdered them just to see what would happen.
  • You killed them out of boredom.
  • Truly disgusting...
  • Ha ha ha ha...
  • You naive idiot.
  • Do you think you are the only one with that power?
  • The power to reshape the world...
  • Purely by your own determination.
  • The ability to play God!
  • The ability to "SAVE."
  • I thought I was the only one with that power. But...
  • I can't SAVE anymore.
  • Apparently YOUR desires for this world override MINE.
  • Well well.
  • Enjoy that power while you can.
  • I'll be watching.

If Genocide Route Requirements Are Met

  • Hahaha...
  • You're not really human, are you?
  • No. You're empty inside. Just like me. In fact...
  • You're <Name>, right?
  • We're still inseparable, after all these years...
  • Listen. I have a plan to become all powerful.
  • Even more powerful than you and your stolen soul.
  • Let's destroy everything in this wretched world.
  • Everyone, everything in these worthless memories...
  • Let's turn 'em all to dust.
An audio clip then plays of Toby exclaiming "That's a wonderful idea!"

If Frisk hasn't been met

  • Error!
Toby's sound is heard repeatedly and dialog box can't be closed by "Z"

Neutral Route

"If you let me live... I'll come back. I'll kill you. I'll kill everyone. I'll kill everyone you love."
– Toby, if spared after his boss battle.

After the Ruins of Home, Toby, will be seemingly absent until the end of Monster Kid battle. However, backtracking in some rooms allows the protagonist see Toby going through walls on the edge of the screen.

If the protagonist decides to kill Monster Kid, Flowey appears, destroys Monster Kid's SOUL, and absorbs the six bottled monster SOULs. If the protagonist spares Monster Kid, Flowey appears and kills Monster Kid himself. Then, it goes to the file select screen and Toby's battle begins after opening the file again.

After he is defeated, the protagonist has the chance to spare or kill Flowey. Flowey requires the protagonist to offer him mercy multiple times before he flees, unsure why the protagonist is being nice to him.

If the protagonist loads or finishes another Neutral Route, Toby does not absorb the SOULs because he knows that they would rebel again. Instead, the protagonist will be able to exit the room and receive Asgore's Neutral Route phone call.
