Unexpecterchanged, also known by shortened name Unex, is a role swap AU made by reddit user Patwhit01. This AU, as the title would suggest, has rather unexpected swaps and changes compared to the role swaps common in other AUs. For one, it does not follow the popular Storyshift "pair shift" type of character swapping.
About the AU
Unex, as stated above, is a role-swap AU, similar to AUs such as Storyshift, and Inverted Fate. It follows no rules for its character swapping, and as the name suggests, goes for more unexpected twists and turns.
- The RUINS is now completely abandoned and worn-down, and absent of all its inhabitants.
- The CORE, during its grand opening, malfunctioned, causing an explosion. Toriel, Asgore, and Asriel, who were present at the time, were caught in the explosion. Their fate remains unknown.
- The Protagonist/Player Character Role is taken by a new human named Frederick. Frederick is very quiet, and rarely speaks. His SOUL trait is Empathy, and his SOUL and text color is salmon.
- Flowey is now much more disheveled and torn up, and stalks you throughout the RUINS. They are the one that fights you at the end, instead of Toriel.
- The Recluse Role is taken by Chara, stuck in the RUINS due to the door being shut by Flowey. They are very messy and hostile, due to them being isolated for such a long time. They are the mid-boss fight of the RUINS, and the one who saves you from Flowey.
- The Judge Role is taken by Monster Kid], or simply known as "Kid", is the one you meet at the beginning of Snowdin, where he heard "loud noises coming from the RUINS door." and went to check it out. He is very friendly and outgoing, and loves meeting new friends.
- The Ambitious Role is taken by Frisk, the player character from Undertale, is the adoptive sibling of Monster Kid. They are very hotheaded and impatient, and love to fool around with people.
- Alphys and Undyne are the adoptive parents of Monster Kid and Frisk, becoming married prior to the events of Unexpecterchanged. They are much more down-to-earth and friendly than their counterparts, but retain their outgoing natures.
- The Captain of the Guard Role is taken by Napstablook.
- The Royal Scientist Role is taken by Mettaton.
- The Monarch Role is taken by Papyrus.
- The Fallen Role is taken by Asriel. His narration is much more personal and less mature than Chara's, shown by his bigger use of colored text, which was used for personal narration in canon Undertale. His text color is green.
