And If I Become An Evil Villain To Accomplish That
Is That Bad?

Queen

Queen, full name Serial Number Q5U4EX7YY2E9N, is the primary antagonist and final boss of Chapter 2 in Deltarune. She is the ruler of the Cyber World, a Dark World located in the library's computer lab.

GIGA Queen is her giant robot that serves as the Chapter 2 final boss on a normal route.

Profile

Appearance

Queen is a tall and slim black, azure, and white Darkner. She wears a black-and-azure top, with spiked shoulders from the azure part of the top and a large white collar, white pants (usually with the left half of her pants being azure), black high-heeled boots, azure gloves, a mole, azure lipstick, and an azure cap that sweeps significantly behind her head. Her eyes are a dark screen with a heart-like shape, occasionally showing red text according to her emotions. Her overall design bears a resemblance to Lancer and King (the white/blue color, eyes that are replaced with a dark shape, dark colored torso, white legs/pants, blue gloves, boot-like shoes), despite her being a computer rather than a playing card like they are.

GIGA Queen has white skin like Queen, along with a black heart-shaped screen, while having a jordy-blue star-like cap and jordy-blue lipstick. She wears azure shoulder pads, a jordy-blue leotard with a black belt around it that has a azure diamond-shaped crystal-like object in the middle of her, azure gloves, and azure high-heels. When doing her acid attack, GIGA Queen's star cap and leotard turn to the same green color as her acid.

Personality

Queen is a benevolent, if somewhat airheaded, person. While she is the main antagonist, it is mostly out of lack of insight rather than malice. She seems reluctant about controlling people she likes, and would rather they willingly go along with her plans to make them happy. She is also prone to giving people pet names and describing them using fun adjectives. She genuinely believes she is doing the right thing by opening Dark Fountains, and after she learns the truth of The Roaring from Ralsei, she recognizes that she was misguided and immediately stops her plan.

Being a computer, she has a unique speech pattern evident by her capitalizing first letters of every word in her dialogue, which can either denote a robotic monotone or her over-enunciating every word as if it were its own sentence. She also neglects the use of punctuation marks or puts them in rather weird places, for computer-y effects like imitating a text template (e.g. You Have Been: [text]). She also uses Internet acronyms when talking, such as LMAO. She often laughs in a distinguished manner.

Main Story

History

Not much is known about Queen or her past, except for the fact that she and her kingdom seem to take power from Lightners going on their devices and using the internet. She makes references to a past relationship with King, however, it's unknown how intimate they were. Queen is not flesh and blood, as she states multiple times that she is a computer, and there is no indication that she knew Lancer prior to meeting him in Ralsei's Castle Town.

At some point in the past, Queen overtook Spamton as the Cyber World's most popular figure, with advertisements of his becoming overlaid with her own ads.

After losing access to the Internet, she became somewhat insane, brainwashing her Plugboy subjects and doing other considerably heinous things. At some point, Queen was able to obtain a video of a Dark Fountain being formed.

Chapter 2

After the Knight creates a Dark Fountain in the Library's computer room, Queen takes control of the Cyber World. When Berdly and Noelle enter the Cyber World, Queen abducts Noelle and reluctantly accepts Berdly as a minion. She wants to make Noelle her "willing peon" and roboticize her face. Queen tries to get Noelle to fight the Lightners, but Noelle only talks to Susie, so she brings in Berdly to fight them.

After defeating Berdly, Kris meets Noelle who has escaped from Queen, and who Queen is looking for. Queen decides to form a truce with Kris until she finds Noelle. Later on, it becomes increasingly evident that Queen genuinely cares for Noelle.

Eventually, the Lightners, including Noelle and Berdly, reach the Queen's Mansion, where the Queen declares the end of her truce and imprisons everyone but Ralsei, who briefly becomes a butler due to her running out of cages. Berdly joins forces with Kris and the others to take down Queen and save Noelle. However, Queen captures Berdly again and uses a wire to control him. After a battle with Queen and the controlled Berdly, Queen once again escapes and delivers a monologue about the Knight and wanting to use the power of the Lightners to expand the Cyber World with more Dark Fountains. Susie strikes her down, but Queen retreats to her giant robot.

After a giant robot fight, Noelle tells Queen that she will never be happy if Queen is controlling her. Ralsei also tells everyone including Queen that opening more Dark Fountains will bring the Roaring, an event that will destroy all Darkners and bring chaos to the world. Queen realizes the error of her ways and ends hostilities with the Lightners. She then goes to Castle Town with the rest of the recruited Darkners.

A cutscene in Castle Town reveals she has some history with King, and she quickly becomes friends with Lancer. She also states that she is taking in Lancer as her new son in a cutscene with King.

In Battle

Queen

Attacks

  • Berdly descends from above and unleashes 3 tornadoes from the left and right, spreading out in 3 different patterns.
  • One of Queen's boots drops down from the top of the Bullet Board on the left, middle, or right sections of it. A blinking "!" box appears before the boot comes down, similar to one of Asgore's attacks from Undertale.
  • Vectorized heads of Queen form up and laugh before exploding into smaller, spinning white heads of her. The placement and speed at which they form are random. Later on in the fight, the heads appear quicker as well.
  • Screens similar to those in the Cyber World appear outside the Bullet Board, containing green cursors aimed at the SOUL. They shoot a quick beam from whatever direction the cursor was aimed. A faint red line can also be seen to signify the path, similar to one of King's attacks in Chapter 1.
  • Later in the fight, 2 of the above attacks (and then all 3) are paired up with each other.
  • Various heads in boxes scroll alongside the Bullet Board, spouting generic topics and keywords that scroll either left or right, almost as if they're texting to each other. After this attack is executed for the first time, an added blue icon containing Queen's head comes in after a bit and spouts out the red word "DRAMA", which seems to literally cause drama among the crowd, as the icons freeze and start cursing at Queen, with red curses of "profanity" flying across all directions, and Queen's icon is just laughing at the madness. Any boxes with the head of an Everyman do not attack.
  • 2 plugs electrify the Bullet Board's border that spits out sparks in different directions, while the board itself moves around the screen. This resembles the King's spike wall attack combined with the Werewire's spark attack. Later in the fight, the board starts rotating and only one plug is present but spits out more sparks.
  • When she fills up her firewall, it is preceded by an attack involving a chalice-shaped Bullet Board, where white drops of liquid rain down and fill up the board with a white liquid. After the first use, the chalice begins to tilt as well.
  • A download bar reading "DOWNLOADING: ULTIMATE ATTACK" appears above her, but stops at 60%. It then fails and a bunch of different pop-ups appears to cover up most of the board as her vector heads start popping up.

Strategy

During her first encounter, Queen uses Berdly hypnotized by a Werewire cable to attack the party for her. The battle ends when Berdly is fully loosened from the cable or Queen's (chair's) health is depleted. If aiming to defeat Queen through ACTing, it should be noted that the following actions increase Berdly's mercy when Queen is Defenseless:

  • Each team member can Loosen the cable by 5% (or GroupLoosen for 15% at once). If two allies are down, the remaining one can Loosen the cable by 8%.
  • Similarly, with Werewire, Susie can Throw Kris to hit as many targets as possible: starting with 2, they increase as the battle progresses, up to 6, and each target gives an amount mercy depending on the phase (rounded up). In phase 1 it gives 12.5 mercy (rounded up), in phase 2 it gives 8.333333333333334, in phase 3 it gives 6.75, and in phase 4 it gives 5% (this can be combined with Ralsei's Loosen, for a potential 30% Mercy increase in a single turn for most situations).[1]
    • If the team pushs the battle by violence at first, then start to loosen Berdly after the third shield is broken, then it is possible to show up 6 targets on a wire at once, thus 30% mercy can be given just by throwning in a single turn.

Additionally, both Red Buster and Dual Heal will be available during the fight.

When the cable is around 25%, 50%, or 75% loosened or Queen's health is around 75%, 50%, or 25%, Queen puts up a firewall powered by her chalice of battery acid, Protecting her and preventing the party from taking the previously described actions. At this point, the party must manage to deplete her shield power, either by toasting her to trick her into drinking the battery acid or by inflicting damage on it directly, thus making Rude Buster and Red Buster powerful options. Afterward, the battle can continue as normal.

GIGA Queen

Attacks

  • GIGA Queen crouches and flashes with a ping! sound, before attacking in the center with a kick. Similar to Undertale's Asgore fight, the number of times that she flashes determines the number of times that she attacks.
  • GIGA Queen throws baseballs that glow red when the Thrash Machine can hit them. Successfully hitting this attack causes a baseball to fall on GIGA Queen, dealing damage.
  • GIGA Queen summons yellow wheels that roll from both sides.
  • GIGA Queen turns green in order to fire a light cone from her acid glass to the left or to the right. She then throws the acid glass in that direction, which in turn spawns a short acid cloud.
  • Many copies of Queen fly towards the screen, leaving a gap to dodge them.
  • GIGA Queen releases missiles out of her chest that fall down.
  • GIGA Queen exhales a line of fire that moves back and forth. The line has gaps which the SOUL can pass through from one side to the other.
    • This attack and the previous one both use Kris's SOUL for dodging, rather than the Thrash Machine itself.
  • Final attack: Copies of GIGA Queen fly from the top before she throws a comically large slow-moving baseball, which must be punched to end the battle.

Strategy

  • Depending on what head is selected while building the Thrash Machine in Chapter 1, it gets a unique ability, each doing something different.
    • If the Laser Head is selected, Thrash Machine gets LaserMode, greatly increasing attack speed for the turn.
    • If the Sword Head is selected, Thrash Machine gets SwordMode, increasing damage with every hit until the next miss.
    • If the Flame Head is selected, Thrash Machine gets FireMode, greatly increasing damage.
    • If the Duck Head is selected, Thrash Machine gets DuckMode, which decrease damage, but heals about 35 HP, and heals 2 HP per punch against GIGA Queen.
    • If the machine was never made (e.g. by starting with Chapter 2 instead of Chapter 1) a random head is selected.
  • For avoiding GIGA Queen's attacks:
    • When GIGA Queen flashes with a ping! dodge to the left, right, or by ducking; corresponding to the number of pings.
    • As GIGA Queen fires baseballs at the Thrash Machine, the Thrash Machine should hit them back. There are usually only three to hit, and it also leaves her open for extra attacks afterward.
    • GIGA Queen's acid throw can be avoided by paying attention to which direction the cone of light is facing and then dodging into the opposite direction. Ducking also works and is considerably easier as there is no need to worry about the direction of the attack.
    • For the copies of GIGA Queen, there is a gap to the left or right where the attack can be dodged. When the gap isn't there, there is a GIGA Queen in the center doing a taunting pose, which must be ducked under (pressing down).
    • GIGA Queen's final attack re-uses the same strategies for the clones attack and the baseball. Hitting the large baseball at the end of the attack ends the fight with a cutscene.
  • Following Ralsei's advice, attacks should be dodged and then as many hits as possible should be attempted.
  • Using an Attack to deal more damage makes the fight shorter.
  • Due to how the missiles target the SOUL via loose homing, it's best to stand still for a bit so they mostly go for a single area, similar to the Party Dojo's explanation of grazing.
  • The Thrash Machine's attack power is based on Kris's Attack stat. Its defense is independent, however. Therefore it is a good idea to equip Kris with items that increase their attack power, such as the Mecha Saber, the Iron Shackle, the Jevilstail, or Frayed Bowties.

Relationships

King

Queen mentions in her monologue before her final fight that it was King who told her about the fountains, implying she knew him in the past. After returning to Castle Town at the end of Chapter 2 (if all Darkners from Cyber World are recruited), an interaction between King and Queen occurs in front of the basement jail cell, where Queen calls King "Kingy Wingy" and King calls Queen "Queenie Beanie." These pet names further reinforce possible past relations.

Lancer

If all Darkners from Cyber World are recruited, Queen declares herself as Lancer's mother after the events of Chapter 2. However, given her quip that she arbitrarily came to the decision to take care of him whilst talking to King, it is unknown whether the two are biologically related. They can be seen hanging out on lawn chairs right outside the rooms that Ralsei made for his friends. Lancer refers to Queen as "girldad" to which Ralsei asks if he means "a mom." Queen and Lancer both share a laugh, calling Ralsei "Peachboy." Strangely, Lancer refers to Queen as a "wild Mom" after being released from Kris's pocket in Queen's Mansion, making their exact relationship inconsistent.

Kris

Kris is possibly the only party member Queen takes a genuine liking to when they first meet. When they're on their own for the first time, Queen brings up Kris not having opinions and screaming at all and is unable to comprehend why others are not more like them. She also makes a truce with Kris so that they can find their respective allies while entrusting Kris to not tell Berdly where she's hiding whenever he appears alone. Twice in the game, Queen prompts Kris to grab a banana in the path for the potassium.

Ralsei

Queen doesn't acknowledge Ralsei until after she captures Kris, Susie, and Berdly. Since she doesn't know how to capture Ralsei, she decides to make him a butler for her mansion, which Ralsei agrees to. She also seems to be prone to forgetting Ralsei's presence as she forgot about Ralsei while capturing the others and could not even remember if there was a third party member when attempting to bribe the team during the final fight.

Noelle

Queen's main goal is to find Noelle so that she can use her will to aid her in world dominance. Naturally terrified by this, Noelle tries to hide from her most of the time. However, when Queen doesn't know Noelle is around, she expresses genuine concern for her well-being since she could be lost alone in the city. Even after capturing Noelle and being defeated, she still doesn't force her and gives her the choice to make a better world, not wanting to see Noelle sad.

Berdly

Berdly becomes Queen's minion without her consent, wanting to create a world for him and Noelle. Queen barely puts up with him, mistaking his name to be "Burghley" (or forgetting altogether) and frequently ditching him because she finds him annoying. In the battle with Queen and the mind-controlled Berdly, she reveals that she only intended to use the face plug on him.

Jevil

If Jevil is fought instead of pacified in Chapter 1, he mentions the "Queen" will return. It is likely he is referring to Queen herself, and that he has met the Queen in person, as Tasque Manager appears to have a personal dislike of Jevil.

Trivia

  • If Berdly was defeated via violence in earlier fights, it becomes impossible to loosen him without injury in Queen's fight, regardless of how the party chooses to defeat Queen.
    • It is possible to deplete the HP of Queen's chair while completely loosening Berdly in a single turn. However, if the fight ends up in this way, his arm still gets hurt, regardless how Berdly was defeated in earlier fights.
  • Queen's boss fight shares a number of similarities with Princess Shroob from the Mario and Luigi series. Both characters carry a chalice around with them, sit upon electronic thrones, have red eyes with black sclera, and are a part of a royal lineage.
    • The acid Queen consumes during the fight may be a reference to Swiggler, a boss from the same game Princess Shroob originates from, as both consume some sort of green liquid that alters their respective boss fight in a certain way.
  • The sound effect and iris-out transition used after the scene where Queen captures Kris, Susie, and Berdly is a reference to the level-clear animation from Super Mario World.
  • Queen's distinctive laugh can be heard upon starting Chapter 2. A wireframe version of Queen also appears on the splash screen before the Chapter 2 file is selected.
  • Queen's "serial number" contains all of the letters needed to spell her name, in the right order.
  • The GIGA Queen battle theme "Knock You Down!!" is very similar to and appears to be based upon the SNES Power Rangers End Boss theme.
  • GIGA Queen's entire fight, as well as the arcade game at the beginning of Chapter 2, is a direct reference to Punch-Out!!, a fighting game series that originated as an arcade game and was later released on NES, SNES, and Wii.
  • GIGA Queen's fight background may be a reference to Touhou 17's final stage background, which both feature a scrolling, flashing hallway filled with screens/windows, all the while inside a highly technological city.
  • If the Thrash Machine does not get hit at all during the first 2 rounds of the GIGA Queen fight, she is further powered up in the third round, to the point her movements leave blue shadows behind. However, the Thrash Machine is also able to inflict higher damage to her in this case.
    • This can only happen on the first attempt at fighting GIGA Queen. If the Thrash Machine is defeated and try again is chosen on the game over screen, GIGA Queen will not become powered up, even if the Thrash Machine avoids taking any damage in the first 2 rounds. If the save file is reloaded, it becomes possible again.
  • If the Thrash Machine loses to GIGA Queen, she repeatedly ducks, referencing the action popular in multiplayer games called "teabagging" or "t-bagging."[2]
  • Queen's Light World equivalent appears to be a high-end laptop. This may explain her comments about "only playing mobile games" and her love of battery acid.
    • Her similar appearance to King and Lancer despite being unrelated to playing cards may be a reference to the Solitaire application that is typically pre-installed on a Microsoft device. An unused attack assigned to her also references Microsoft Solitaire.[3]
      • However, GIGA Queen may represent the Queen of Diamonds, indicated by a diamond-shaped crystal on the chest of GIGA Queen.
  • In the Japanese version of Deltarune, the texting acronym "LMAO" is replaced with "WWW" and "草 (kusa / grass)", because it's a texting slangs Japanese use to represent laughing. Also, all of her dialogue is surrounded by HTML comments (<!-- -->).
  • During the GIGA Queen fight, if the party attacks the (small) baseballs she throws but refuses to attack GIGA Queen, Queen, and the narration still comments as if no buttons were pressed.
  • Queen's outfit is sometimes depicted as a black leotard with one leg being azure and the other being white, probably due to when she sits in her chair, the angle makes it look somewhat like that. It could also be due to Lancer and King having something similar to that (minus the azure leg).
  • Queen's typing quirk (capitalizing the first letter of every word, sparing use of punctuation) bears resemblance to the typing quirk of Kanaya Maryam, a major character in Homestuck.
