Frisk has a fairly rich history. Check this page to check it out.

Frisk is currently the cheapest Determination card and arguably the most iconic due to their role in Undertale and them being one of the 2 Determination cards to be available since the start of Undercards, the other being Chara.

From its effect, they make you unable to be damaged, although still able to be hit by enemy monsters and spells. Its HP and cost is based on how many monsters are in play (the more monsters the higher), and when it dies, it returns to your deck in its base state.

Overview

Undertale_OST_-_His_Theme_(Build_Up_Ver.)_Extended

Undertale OST - His Theme (Build Up Ver.) Extended

1:09 - 1:14 (Note: In the world of Undertale, "his" refers to Asriel, not Frisk.)

Frisk has 4 effects:

  • It makes you unable to be damaged, but still able to be attacked;
  • It passively increases its own cost by 1G for each monster on the board (except itself) wherever it is. With one free slot to play it, this increases its cost by up to 7G for a total price of 14G.
  • When played, gains +3 max HP for each ally monster, but also each enemy monster, able to gain up to 21 HP for a total of 24;
  • Once dying, adds another base Frisk to your deck.

This end-game efficacy is implied heavily within the card, considering it can gain up to 21 more HP, the biggest HP gain effect, depending on how many monsters are on the board, something easily achievable near the end of the game; and also that it returns to your deck after dying, making it easily accessible if your deck is near empty.

Strategy

The invulnerability provided by Frisk coupled with its potential for high HP should, in theory, make it a late-game trump card ideal for turning a game around by stopping the enemy from attacking you directly. Due to its Dust, it will always add a new Frisk to your deck, whether you summon one or clone it. That means using Royal Integrity can add a second (or even third) Frisk to stall the game further.

Cards like Red Bird and Faun also have a chance of giving you a Frisk when properly used. But the chance is very low in all of these situations, so a strategy based on them isn't recommended.

The main problem with Frisk lies in its inherent weakness to hard removal. Ways of removing Frisk include:

  • Using the Load spell to destroy Frisk and other monsters in play.
  • Playing Dimensional Box and silencing or using Break/Doggo on it.
  • Using Red Bird on it to transform it. It can still, however, turn it into a base 3/3 Frisk.
  • Making its owner overdraw it by filling their hand.

Frisk can also be temporarily removed with instant-kill cards such as Golden Hit, Termination, Contamination, Snow Storm, or Asgore. Slowing and Expulsion are also effective ways to counter Frisk, though in the latter's case, the enemy can simply place it down again, gold permitting.

On its user's side, Frisk can try to protect it with Taunt cards to prevent monsters from attacking it. However, as there are currently no cards in the game that redirect or counter spells or prevent Magic effects from triggering, protecting Frisk for more than a turn or two is extremely difficult.
