Spamton and Papyrus are Strangely Similar...
An interesting thing I found is that Spamton and Papyrus (from Undertale at least) both have a lot of pretty similar qualities.
List of similar qualities:
-Both act very prideful and loud (both talk in caps) but are actually very obviously insecure
-Both are not very good in handling friendships and are very lonely
-Both loudly project their own feelings on the main character while denying they feel these feelings themselves
-Both willing believe anyone who stops to listen to them for a little while is definitely their friend (Papyrus with Frisk and Spamton with Kris)
-Both have eccentric dressing styles that they find the height of fashion
-Both like cars and driving (Papyrus with his car bed and dreams of driving and Spamton when he sold cars and when he talks to Kris about taking rides around town in special “Cungaderos”)
-Both have people talk about them behind their backs in a sort of pitying way
-Both loudly exclaim their dreams and how they hope to achieve them. They were both very optimistic about these dreams while others say they would never achieve these dreams. These dreams are not actually what would make them happy though. (Getting into the royal guard, becoming a Big Shot)
-Both can heal you when battling (Papyrus heals you if you lose at his battle, Spamton can heal you if you press F1 even though he is fighting you)
-Both really like Mettaton (Papyrus likes Mettaton in general, Spamton really likes how Mettaton’s body looks even if he doesn’t know him personally)
-Both have a unique laugh (Papyrus’ NYEH HEH HEH and Spamton’s HAEAHAEAHAEA)
-Both appear to easily idolize people on TV (Papyrus loves Mettaton’s shows and idolizes being like him, Spamton really idolizes Mike from the 1997 Big Shot commercial and idolizes being like him)
It seems like they are very similar. If this is true though, why do they seem to have such differing views on life? It may be that Spamton is older than Papyrus and was led down a bad path by someone he thought would help him. In a way, Papyrus may be what Spamton was like before he was abandoned by everyone, controlled unwillingly, and shown so much depressing information about the world that he lives in that he went crazy. Spamton (despite fandom headcannons) also doesn’t have a brother and was grown up told that he needed to Advertise as an Addison (even if he wasn’t very good at it without help).
It is also implied that Spamton was exactly like the Addisons before but was shrunk in by falling into the Queen’s acid lake. If this was true, he may have looked a little like this picture below (I’m also just noticing this now, but I think the green pants on the other Addisons may have also been a clue of what happened to Spamton’s legs as the green is the same color as the Queen’s acid). If he did look like this, then he also would have appeared to pose a very similarly to Papyrus and had his white complexion.
Other visual similarities include their perpetually smiling faces. Spamton himself also has pointed cheekbones that look skeletal. Both of their face portraits also have slightly off-kilter eyes (one shorter or smaller than the other).
They also both do the silly eyes.
I wonder if this has implications to why Spamton was seen as important by that mysterious caller that is implied to be Gaster…
Plus some other weird connections...?
-Spamton used to go to the Cyber Grill with his friends before he was abandoned by them. Papyrus is stated to really hate Grillby’s.
-Swatch has stated that Spamton was a valued customer of his Café at Queen’s mansion. It seems like the only food they serve there is SpaghettiCode besides the ButlerJuice. Papyrus loves Spaghetti.
-Papyrus very much likes order and cleanliness. He hates how trashy Sans room can get. Spamton is noted to really hate living in his, “GOD DAMN GARBAGE CAN.”
-Papyrus is noted to like cool sunglasses in promotional art (so much so that he sometimes puts sunglasses on his shoulders). Spamton also likes cool sunglasses.

Aight aight aight aight
I want to talk about the Biblical motifs in Undertale/Deltarune.
Gaster's number is 666, aka "The Devil's Number."
Sans' use of the term "burning in hell."
There's a whole Catholic-esq religion in Deltarune, with Azriel being a Choirboy in Father Alvin's Chaple.
Jevil pities "Sinners."
Spamton wants to reach heaven with Kris's soul (which, on an unrelated note, means Darkners are like monsters in that they can fuse with a human soul to become stronger, or in Spamton's case, bigger.)
This goes into the mercy/murder choices (or lack there of) in the series as a whole.
Chara can be seen as an angel, with the Genocide corruption counterpart being a fallen angel, aka demon.
Noelle's Dark World clothing is that of a angel gown.
So what could this mean?
IDK, just thought I would point it out might come back to it later.

Some Observations About the Queen’s Basement
1) I just noticed the song “Digital Roots” playing in Deltarune’s basement segment is a loop of the notes used for “YOUR BEST NIGHTMARE” and “Here We Are” in Undertale with slight alterations, it also had been dragged out so it sounds slower and covered in some sort of static filter.
2) Mettaton’s upgraded form in the Genocide Route of Undertale… He gets NEO attached to his usual name. So does “big” Spamton. Seeing as Alphys worked on Mettaton’s robot body it is possible that his upgraded and more aggressive form is also her work. Does this mean she ostensibly built Spamton’s upgraded body? She did lots of work on transplanting souls… That’s how flowey came to be, so it’s not that much of a stretch that she may have tried moving Spamton’s soul to a different vessel. (Unless this was Gaster’s doing. He’s the only other great scientist we know of in the two games.)
3) There are some visual similarities here to Flowey’s boss fight and the True Lab as well, the basement is host to a mixture of science and botany… There are vines all over the place in contrast to the technology found throughout.
4)Look at the design similarities between Mettaton NEO and Spamton NEO… Their wings are almost identical in shape. Both have a very similar gun arm built in, both have a sort of emblem on their chest.
5) Lastly, the creepy smile that flickers onto the screen for like a milisecond… Doesn’t it resemble the face on nightmare flowey’s monitor?
This seems to suggest a link between flowey/the true lab and the stuff going on in Queen’s mansion basement. Maybe even a link between Gaster and what happened to Flowey? Seeing as Spamton could likely have something to do with Gaster as well.
