MusicTale(Also known as Music!; formerly known as "Musical Tales") is an Undertale AU created by the YouTuber, GrowlingPanda. The project was first started sometime in late 2015/ early 2016, starting out as a fangame. The fangame, however, was cancelled and an animated series that takes place during the True Pacifist Route, that was also cancelled later on, took it's place. As of now, MusicTale is a comic series and possibly some animated shorts.
MusicTale is supposed to be an unofficial sequel to a the original Undertale, albeit in a different timeline. At the beginning, Frisk finds themselves in a space station orbiting a post-apocalyptic planet known as Bossatronia, and must then traverse an island dubbed Skystrike to find their way home.
Major Differences from Undertale Edit
- All of the characters are replaced with either YouTubers, musicians, or OCs. As a result, some story events are different.
- More special fights will take place in the Genocide Route. Characters include Endigo/Toriel, Maya/Napstablook, Technocat/Doggo, Venturian/Papyrus, and Kitcha/Alphys.
- Instead taking place underground, the story takes place on an island called Skystrike, which is on a planet known as Bosstronia.
- Corresponding with the new overall setting, the main locations are different(Ex.The Ruins are now a space station; Waterfall is a desert known as SandDune).
- Other AU's will be involved. The only ones confirmed at the moment are InkTale and ErrorTale.
- The events of "Venturiantails" and "The Final Reach" series, animated series also created by Panda, are cannon.
MusicTale is to feature a soundtrack composed almost wholly by Panda. Most of the tracks are remixes of tracks from Undertale, sans a few original tracks usually saved for new boss battles. Additionally, the genre of most of these tracks is a subgenre of the Electronic genre of music, though other genres like Rock, Metal, and Jazz can also be found. All music is composed on FL Studio 12.
The full soundtrack can be found here.

The story revolves around 14 year old biologist Crimson Rose discovering that the titular group had crashed landed on her home land Skystrike and has to help them get back on track.
On May 28, 2017, a trailer was released for the project, the first episode setting to be released on June 2, 2017. The same day, it was confirmed that the project would now be a fanfiction video series.

There will also be Gyms and a Pokemon League, managed by currently existing and new characters.
"MusicFresh"is a side AU to MusicTale that was first teased on May 9, 2017(The glasses were shown even earlier than that, though). One day later, Panda stated that something "fresh" would be teased later on, likely referring to this. On May 20, 2017, a picture for the AU's version of Kitty(Named Becky) was released and her theme "Waters of Kittylovania", alongside the official announcement of the AU, was officially released.

Fanmade Series Edit
MusicTale: Greater Tensions Edit
"MusicTale: Greater Tensions"(Often shortened to "MusicTale GT") is a spinoff AU of MusicTale created by MusicTale AU Wiki editor and freelance artist, LightWing22. The AU initially started out as a series of headcannons for the original MT, but after LightWing presented her eventually rejected ideas on Maya to Panda while developing her character, she decided to make the headcannons a separate AU, in order to avoid conflicting viewpoints. The AU itself is very similar to MT, but there is a heavier emphasis on characterization and worldbuilding, and a generally darker storyline.
The story involves a Hoppas Village resident, Frisk, climbing the local Mt. Ebott to investigate a mysteious structure(A portal), after hearing reports of children who drew near it disappearing, only to be sucked in and transported to Skystrike Satellite. Frisk then must traverse Skystrike, a Bossatronian island living under a dystopian society, in order to reach the castle at the center, and head back home.
A webcomic highlighting the True Pacifist Route is planned, though will it become a fanfiction if cancelled. It is unknown if LightWing will be giving the Neutral and Genocide Routes the same treatment.
On January 5, 2016, GrowlingPanda released announced the project on her video "Musical Tales TEASER TRAILER (Undertale Fan-Interactive Video)", presenting AntiSepticEye, whom tells the reader that they're in an interactive video and can't wait to destroy them, but can't because the project isn't finished. February 4, 2016, would confirm that the project was a fangame renamed to MusicTale in a video containing the first songs ever made "Neutrology", "Metal Dashed", and "Mechadrone". In the description of the same video, the first area of the game, the Space Station, and the Toriel of the AU Metal Dash was confirmed.
