Here's something to think on: Asgore noted that monsters need hope to survive. He never did quite say weather or not they'd die without it, but Sans does feel pretty goshdarn hopeless, doesn't he? Not to mention Asgore and Toriel's surprisingly low health pools compared to the power they are said to have.

OMG SENPAI???? WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN MY ASK BOXXXXXX *swoons*


R-regarding your question! I think everyone needs hope to survive, humans and monsters. So if you’re trying to refer to Sans’ 1 HP thing, I doubt that’s it.


Aside from that, in the game’s demo, HP was referred as Hit Points. That would be the number of points you need to deplete to take the monster down, and that’s more battle-oriented than anything else. I consider that canon, [since Hit Poodles and Horse Power are obviously in-game jokes], and not the actual HEALTH the monster might have. 

If not, the common definition of HP is still Health Points, and that’s unrelated to hope.


Another reason why I think HP does not stand for HoPe: You can raise the maximum amount of HP you have by sleeping. If you rest, your physical condition and your health get better. That HP increase would make sense if HP means Health Points. But it doesn’t make sense that sleeping would increase your hope.


Speaking of Asgore and Toriel. It’s obvious that they are Boss Monsters if you look at their stats, [80 AT - 80 DF] regardless of the HP they might have.

Totally legit facts about Gil™

* Only sleeps for like 4 hours a day

* Exists on a diet of coffee, sandwiches and whatever the future version of skittles is

* Loves vodka whilst he’s robbing everyone blind at poker

* Vodka doesn’t love him - if, and when, he’s hungover, he has to stay in bed all day and eat whilst he watches cheesy crime/detective shows (preferably whilst spooning with Ryder) 

* Him and Jill may or may not have “”””accidentally”””” conned a senior alliance officer out of ~500 credits one time at a casino on the Citadel (they were then told ‘politely’ to never come back)

* Amazingly his hair just does that - probably something to do with him working by the mass effect core all day

* Never cleans up after himself when he tinkers with stuff on the ship - whenever Ryder needs to find him they just follow the trail of discarded wrenches, oil spills and sandwich crumbs (for the hungry engineer on the go) 

(was thinking about these the other night just deciding to post it now because 1) it’s a break from doing my report and 2) I’m all about that Gil Brodie)  

Beast Boy: If we were both drowning, who would you save?

Raven: I don’t know, both of you.

Beast Boy: No. If you could only save one of us?

Raven: Well, I would probably save Timmy because he can’t swim and I happen to know you’re an excellent swimmer.

Beast Boy: Suppose I was holding an anchor? … Who would you save then?

Raven: Well, why don’t you let go of the anchor?

Beast Boy: It’s a family heirloom.

Raven: I’m leaving. [walks out]
