Spears, along with knives, axes and clubs arethe earliest tools developed by mankind and have been used in combat, hunting and fishing for ages. Up until the modern era, spears have found their place in almost every army in the world and were used either in one or both hands as melee and throwing weapons.
However, these advancements have not been able to completely eradicate the interest of using modern spears in hunting or as a part of survival gear. A testament to this is the United Cutlery M48 Talon Survival Spear.
Jurassic Decor by EllenCuylaerts Image taken at a Boatswain Bird Island, a tiny island close to shore of Ascension Island in the middle of the South Atlantic. It has a big importance for nesting seabirds and the status on land is IBA (Birdlife International and RSPB). But it should also be fully protected underwater and be an absolute no take zone to protect the wildness of this ‘Jurrassic Park’. Huge tuna has been scooped out by trophy hunting spear fishermen in that area but there is much more to protect before it’s too late!
“I know about komodo dragons. They are dinosaur lizards staying in Komodo Island.” -I spoke
“Oh. But do you know WHY the people gave the word ‘dragon’ for them?” -Said, a wise woman
Ancient time ago, a woman fell in love with a man named Moja.
Both fell in love, then married.
Then they have twin sons. One is named as Gerong, a human boy. One is named as Orah, weirdly born as a huge monitor.
Orah was released to the wild to hide the fear for the family.
Years later, Gerong became a hunter. He worked for his family and he made them proud. As he travelled to the forest, he saw a huge beast. It is a monitor, but as big as a crocodile.
Gerong was about to kill the beast with his hunting spear. But his mother come and told him not to kill the monitor as he was Orah, his twin brother.
Gerong doesn’t understand at first.
But then the mother told him, that she was a daughter of the dragons from the heavens. But she was in love with a human. So she gave up the heavens and married him that Gerong is a human and Orah is a mortal dragon.
(This folklore was told from the people of Komodo Island, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. The komodo is protected by the tribe as a sacred beast and a sibling of the human kind, despite they could kill an ox.)

These three scenes show us a lot more about the history of the monsters against the humans. Using this we can roughly determine where Undertale would take place, what time periods events happened in, and more.
First off the image showing humans and monsters shows a human with a fur poncho/tunic, foot-wraps that go up to the knees, and a primitive stone hunting spear. Probably the Early-middle Stone Age in Northwest Europe, before the Neolithic revolution from the beginning of agriculture instead of nomadic hunting.This was a more pagan time and it would make sense that they would coexist with monsters back then.
Judging by the weapons and clothing of the humans during the war against the monsters,it’s during the Middle Ages. The broad one handed double sided straight sword with a straight cross-guard above the hilt suggests it’s between the 9th-11th century, it appears to be a late Celtic arming sword which eventually evolved into a sword known as a “knight sword”. The spears feature the short rounded flat guard-less heads of Celtic spears. The lack of horses, lack of heavy armor, lack of long-bowmen, use of torches, and the cloak/cape on the lead figure all suggest this is Celtic/Saxon during the Middle Ages. The use of runes in the game for the history of monsters also supports the separation between monsters and humans occurring in that area and time.
Many shells are beautiful, but the creatures that reside in them can be dangerous. That’s the case with the textile cones (Conus textile) like this one, a predator that hunts by spearing it’s prey with a harpoon that delivers a cocktail of neurotoxins that can be fatal even to humans. Scientists like Research Associate Mande Holford, though, are working to help turn those poisons into a new generation of medicines.
The list of survival staff extras includes a compass, a single-point dual-edge spear head for hunting small to medium-sized game, a slingshot attachment for practicing your best huntsman target aiming skills on the go, a fishing spear with a dual-pronged barbed point for catching slippery critters like fish and frogs, a brush axe module with a dual-sided hatchet blade and a cover for chopping firewood and a saw blade fixture
It had been several days since the disruption. The Commander
of the Trikru had sent scouts after the initial crash to survey the situation.
When her warriors reported back, they spoke of unskilled children dressed in
unusual clothing. Though she was monitoring them daily, thus far Lexa didn’t
believe them to be a credible threat beyond that of the unknown. She had spent
much of her time at camp, her guards wishing for her not to expose herself to a
possible threat. But now she was confident enough to venture out on her own,
itching for a hunt.
Lexa crept up on a deer, raising her hunting spear as the
animal bent to eat the grass below. Before she had a chance to painlessly take
down her prey, there was a snapping of twigs that scared the animal away. She
sighed in exasperation. “Shof op,” She hissed at what she thought was one of
her comrades but she found that the source of the sound was actually one of the
unfamiliar faces that had landed here a few days prior. Her skin was pale, her
blonde hair a shock against the background of the trees. Though Heda kept the
spear in her hand she lowered it, peering at the stranger carefully.

Thomas could hear the sound of an approaching motorcycle from a long distance down the road. He lay on his back on the front steps of the old and rundown white church, one arm tucked behind his back, the other holding his phone up so he could see it. Despite the seemingly uncomfortable position, he looked as comfortable as he ever had. The wooden door of the church behind him stood partially open, and the handle had indeed been torn off. It lay on the top step.
No sticks resembling hunting spears lay within view, suggesting that he might have been inventing the entire tale. Much like each of the other five or six tales that he’d not only invented but had also eventually admitted to having invented.
But he really was in a random forest in Missouri. And his shirt really was absent. Despite that, and despite his white pants being rather torn up and stained with dirt and grass, his hair somehow remained perfectly stylish, as if he’d strolled right out of a men’s fashion catalogue. He pushed himself up onto his elbows at the approach of the motorcycle and flashed its rider a bright, if weary, smile.
