"IT'S A FUNNY THING ISN'T IT? THE MORE YOU WANT TO HURT SOMEONE, THE EASIER IT IS TO MAKE THEM STOP LIVING. BUT NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU WANT TO LOVE SOMEONE, YOU CAN'T BRING THEM BACK FROM BEING DEAD."
– Papyrus, talking to Chara/Frisk
Sans stops papyrus from fighting the protganist in snowdin and tries to do it himself but dies.
What happens if Sans dies before encountering him on the Judgement Hall? You will have to fight Papyrus on a Genocide/No Mercy run, causing Papyrus to become the brother who fights you in the corridor. That’s the idea behind Disbelief Papyrus, who has now lost all belief and faith he had that humans could be good, and now is out to get revenge for the death of his brother and friends.
Papyrus is now wearing Sans's jacket and his right eye glows orange. He is also crying. The rest of him is the same as the regular Papyrus. The story can range from Paps still thinking you can change until moments before death, to him truly trying to kill you. Papyrus is often shown wearing Sans's hoodie, and wielding a bone about as long as he is tall.
He looks the same and extended version of the same music plays and he can be spared and the fight ends. If you don't then you break his bone staff and make him angry making Phase 2 start.
He is holding one half of his bone in the air, sometimes spinning the other half. There is different music to the other phases.
His bone is broken and his attacks are extreme.
He is able to move the bullet board and the FIGHT, ACT, ITEM and MERCY buttons.
He cannot be spared.
Before this phase, Papyrus will 'give up' until he realises that he is the Great Papyrus. He is then able to bring a copy of Sans and later, a copy of Undyne back from the dead, although not forever.
One fist is in the air, the other is by his side.
Sans and Undyne are fighting alongside him.
The attacks in this phase are mostly average, but some of them are extremely unfair. His stats are 9999 each.
His special attack is both Sans and Papyrus wearing COOL DUDE clothes while playing pong with your SOUL and some bones. Undyne is revived after the special attack.
At the end of the phase, Papyrus realizes that the copies of Sans and Undyne are not real and apologizes to them.
His battle body is damaged and his arms are by his side.
He uses normal attacks for most of the phase and he can be killed at the end of this phase.
He believes in you again in this phase and tells you that you can still have a good ending by sparing him.
He still believes in you even if you kill him.
