Inspired by music and now I have a few thoughts about Frisk and Chara) So there is spoilers below.

These two a very similar, they souls are red, they fashion choice almost the same. During the game Frisk have some flashbacks from Chara's life ( like one after when you fall down on flowers second time after meeting Undyne and Asgore's voice during the "game over" screen.). And Asriel/Flowey thinks that Frisk is Chara. All this make me believe that Frisk is actually Chara's reincarnation. As we know that Frisk themself is kind and merciful person but still we have a "fight" option that might kill the enemy and I sure that option comes from Chara. I think Chara is small entity who sits in Frisk's subconscious.

"The demon that comes when people call its name" - that how Chara talks about themself. When Frisk fell down to Underground Chara had resurfaced a bit( and gave Frisk a possibility to kill) because at beginning of the game we name Frisk after the first human. And here's one interesting detail.When we do a pacifist route and stare into mirror the text says "It's you", but when we decide to kill everybody the texts here says "It's me, Chara". The whole game narration come in second person so seems like that Chara is narrator )

On pacifist route Chara acting peacefully, yes, they may give Frisk a small desire to kill but thats all. They just narrating everything and even may give us an advise like the whole SAVE thing during Asriel's battle.
But on genocide run we "feed" Chara with EXP and LOVE  and they start to resurface more and more until at the end they become a separated from Frisk being and takes Frisk's soul. The whole "world destruction" thing comes because Chara is soulless like Flowey. Because before dying they didn't seem like pure evil person. I guess they wanted to do the right thing to free monsters but falied. 

So I think Chara becomes "the demon" only because they taste violence again and they start to remember their hatred to humanity and their soulless condition just making it worse. Also I think that Frisk is struggling on Genocide and Netral runs because Chara wants to kill. But on pacifist Chara is still small voice in Frisk's subconscious and not dangerous and sometimes helpful.

So yeah, I'm not sure how true is it, may be we'll see in future :)

This is terrifyingly good. Literally you jump up from seeing what's going to happen, but are just too enchanted by the bright colors to look away. It's like a story straight from the minds of the brothers grim, you know that there is a moral to the plot, but it is not going to end so pleasantly like Disney's version. I especially like how you made the heart one of the main things that you see, only because it show the devious being behind that's ready to do the unthinkable. This is truly very impressive work that you have done!

It looks awesome! You can see the technique and skill needed to make it and the detail you implemented just made it that much better =)
And also, the effect you put in the background. And btw the blood coming out his eye connecting to his heart, a.k.a soul, is a very slim but nice touch

But still, being someone who is used to psychological and creepy this didn't impact me that much but that may be just me X3

In the end it's a combination of beauty and horror, in the good way XD!
GFreakinG that looks badass *gives thumbs up*

Nice theory there, but personally I don't believe that Frisk is so kind and merciful. Mostly because we don't know anything about their past and their facial expression is always like: "I don't care about anything".

Personally, I think Chara is us, the player. We are supposed to name him after ourselves, after all. At the end of the Pacifist run, flowey talks to us, begging not to reset the game. Not to Frisk. He calls us by the name we chose.

He is just us, and the feeling of curiosity. What will happen if I let them live? If I kill them alll

That's why I love Undertale. The game's plot is so open to interpretation and you can think everything you want until Toby says otherwise)

all chara is is a worthless lying pathetic spirit of the 1st who possesses Frisk when you do the dark ritual and summon her.

Chara is the truth. Chara is the player who does the genocide run "because I want to see what happens". Chara is beyond morality, beyond petty things like good or evil. Chara simply is. And if at any point, Chara awakens in your game, then it is entirely your fault. Chara never lied, never spoke once until the very end of the game when you've already damned yourself. You call Chara worthless. Lying. Pathetic. But it took tremendous effort on you, the player, to awaken them. Hardly worthless.

You name him after yourself. That's what you are supposed to do, which means Chara is YOU. You cannot slay yourself. And when you end the pacifist run, Flowey does not talk to Frisk, but you. Calling you by the name of the fallen human.

Can you really slay yourself?
