Whether Toriel joins us in the Dark World or not in Chapter 3, I don’t think there will be a Snowgrave equivalent with her-- or anyone else for that matter, honestly. Because I think from the Snowgrave Route, Toby Fox is trying to draw a parallel between Chara and Noelle, and half a dozen Snowgrave gueststars would seriously distract from that and gradually downplay the impact-- and also because I think from how the Queen treats her, Noelle is special in some way.
I don’t know precisely how Noelle is special, but I have a feeling she might be some form of Apocalypse Maiden, even on the Pacifist/Neutral route. Queen seemed pretty deadset on Noelle being the one to create the Dark Fountains, despite any Lightner being capable of it-- and sure, it could be because the other options are against her or annoying, or the theories Queen is somehow meant to foil Noelle’s mom. But there could be more to it than simply that, with how in both routes, Queen talks about how Noelle is ‘strong’, and doesn’t seem willing to FORCE her to do anything, even leaving her alone when Noelle is horribly rattled by Berdly’s death.
As for a list of parallels between Chara and Noelle, in a vague order of how much I had to say about them...
-Both are Chosen Ones.
Chara was the singular human soul in the Underground, told they were ‘the future of humans and monsters’, and possibly the subject of an ancient prophecy. Noelle seems to get special attention from both Queen and Spamton, is the only character capable of killing in the Dark World, and is being set up as a fairly major character, if not a fourth main character.
-Both feel a heavy sense of responsibility.
In my previous analyses, I’ve talked about how likely it was Chara was driven deeply by senses of guilt, self-loathing, and responsibility. They killed themself the same way they accidentally poisoned their dad, and took it upon themself to be the one to die and have their soul absorbed in the plan to break the Barrier. Likewise, I’m of the opinion ‘you are the future of humans and monsters’ only made this sense of responsibility all the worse, no matter how well-intentioned Asgore was in telling them.
From Rudy’s dialogue and the implications of Queen, it’s been all but stated that Noelle’s mother has some very high expectations for her daughter, and feels he must get better for the sake of Noelle’s mental health. Noelle also has a very difficult time saying no to anyone, the two exceptions being Kris and her father.
-Both are heavily associated with the angelic
Chara is one of the three potential candidates for ‘the Angel’ in the Delta Rune prophecy. It’s also significant that they are called ‘the Fallen Child’ and a ‘demon’ (cough fallen angel cough)
Noelle’s Dark World outfit heavily resembles a Snow Angel, she talks about how she dreams of flying over the city in the ferris wheel ride, she’s called ‘Angel’ in the Snowgrave route, and the faceless Angel doll is in Rudy’s hospital room.
-Both heavily associated with the No Mercy routes of their respective games
Chara accompanies you for every route, but you only have it explicitly confirmed they’re tagging along in No Mercy.
The portion of the game where Noelle, and only Noelle, joins your party is the only time you can do the Snowgrave Route. And once she leaves your party, nothing you can do can change what happens the rest of the route.
Likewise, both are visibly corrupted along their respective No Mercy routes, each visibly ‘growing stronger’ and coping via an obsession with power.
-Both come when their names are called
Chara tells you this at the end of No Mercy, Noelle literally does this at the end of the Spamton NEO fight in Snowgrave.
-Both play with the meta aspects of their respective games
Chara by viciously deconstructing completionist mindsets in video games and calling out the player’s actions in the No Mercy route, Noelle by saying, even when Kris is knocked unconscious, that she still hears our, the Player’s, ‘voice’, and resolving to find out what’s happening.
-Both like creepy things
Chara has a specific creepy face. Noelle likes creepypasta. This is more a headcanon but I think Noelle and Chara would be good friends.

Character studies of the best girls 🪓 ❄️
[Image description: digital drawings of Susie and Noelle from Deltarune.
The first is of Susie. On the left is her light world form, with her middle finger up as she looks at the viewer, her head tilted away. Above her hand is written “I definitely didn’t have to redraw this hand /s”. On the right is her dark world form, with her standing with one fist on her hip and the other holding her axe resting on her shoulder, as she grins at the viewer. Between them are some doodles, one of her from the side giving a big toothy grin, then the next two she has a piece of chalk in her mouth as she says “it’s not a cigarette”, followed by her grinning, having taken the chalk from her mouth to reveal the bite marks, saying “I’m eating chalk”.
The second is of Noelle. On the left is her light world form, with her standing with her arms by her side, giving a slight smile. On the right is her dark world form, with her head turned to the side and one fist up by her chest as she looks surprised. Between them are some doodles, the first is her grinning with her eyes squeezed shut, with the words “fave sprite” and a heart pointed at it. The next is her looking slightly forlorn, off to the side. The last is her looking shocked, blushing madly with all her hair standing on end. End ID]
