Ok but the constant mentions of “neo” and “power” in undertale/deltarune are driving me nuts, especially when the two are related to each other. From the regular Spamton neo fight alone we have:
“THIS POWER IS FREEDOM.“
“3X THE [Fire]POWER. 2X THE [Water]POWER”
“LOOK AT THE [Power of NEO]”
“[The Smooth Taste Of] NEO”
“NO!!! NO!!! NE-O!! KRIS!! YOUR [Deal] HAS FAILED!! [NEO] NEVER LOSES!!”
“With a power like that...“
And in the snowgrave fight:
“THANKS TO YOUR [Total Jackass stunts] I HAVE [Becomed] NEO”
“BUT IN A [1 for 1] BATTLE, NEO NEVER LOSES!!!”
“IT'S TIME FOR A LITTLE [Bluelight Specil]. DIDN'T YOU KNOW [Neo] IS FAMOUS FOR ITS HIGH DEFENSE!?”
(YOU WON'T FIND HIGHER ATTACK AND DEFENSE ANYWHERE ELSE!!! THE SMOOTH TASTE OF NEO "WAKE UP AND TASTE THE PAIN".)
(Spamton Neo's ATTACK dropped! Spamton Neo's DEFENSE rose greatly!)
(Spamton NEO recovered HP with Pipis!)
(Spamton NEO's DEFENSE is towering.)
Then more with the Mettaton ex fight:
“Witness the true power of humanity's star!”
(With the last of your power, you posed dramatically. The audience screams.)
Mettaton before the neo fight also brags about his new body, calling it “MY TRUE FORM!”
Swatch also mentions the “power” of the neo form:
“The Lightner filled it with their own hope, giving it an incredible power.”
“And thought he could use its power to fulfill his own twisted dreams.”
Queen has this line:
“She Will Create A Neo Dark Fountain”
And there’s also these two lines from the Jevil fight:
(JEVIL's upcoming move got powered up!)
“THE TRUE AND NEO CHAOS!”
This line Rouxls says before he turns to stone in chapter 2 also very much interests me:
“The REALE power of Rouxls Kaard...!!!”
So much association of the word “power” with being “neo,” whatever being “neo” means. Mettaton neo’s battle theme is even called Power of “NEO,” with neo oddly enough being in quotes, much like how Spamton sometimes (but not always) says "neo” in brackets, and the Japanese translation of BIG SHOT also references Power of “NEO” by being titled Power of [[BIG]].
There’s also the fact that “neo” is mostly written in all caps, but sometimes only the n is capitalized...an odd distinction, and there doesn’t seem to be a clear reason as to why one writing of neo is used over the other at various times.
Sometimes, Spamton even keeps “neo” in all caps in the brackets, which is odd because he doesn’t speak in all capitals for phrases in the brackets, he usually either capitalizes Every First Letter like Queen does or he uses normal caps and punctuation (except for a few times in his neo form and a few times where he uses all caps for one or two words for emphasis before going back to normal capitalization)
The repeated mentioning of the “high attack and defense” of both Mettaton neo and Spamton neo, as well as Spamton neo’s trading of higher attack power for more defense and the ability to heal himself in the weird route is also interesting, especially since this “high attack and defense” seems misleading as Mettaton neo can be killed in one hit, and although Spamton neo is immune to being killed by Kris, he is easily frozen in one turn by Noelle’s spells.
And the way it’s phrased in so many of these instances makes “neo” seem like a noun, like something tangible and not just an adjective for something new and powerful. What is neo in these contexts? What does “neo” exactly mean?
Not related to “neo” or “power” but there’s also these moments from the snowgrave Spamton neo fight, Rouxl’s thrash mashine battle, and in the Mettaton ex fight:
Rouxls Kaard: “NOT!!”
Mettaton: “ ...NOT!!!”
Also, has anyone mentioned that Mettaton speaks in all caps in his normal box form? He only uses regular capitalization for sentences during his diary entries and when he becomes Mettaton ex, but at the end of the fight he then switches back to all caps. Mettaton neo never stops using all caps. I still don’t know what all of this means but I feel like that’s worth mentioning.
EQ was fucking loaded with magic
like look at this, she knew the stars, the black arts, alchemy, basic witchcraft, black magic/death, master of disguise, sorcery, and a whole book of poison's! she had and has so much at her finger tips SHES A WITCH AND EVIE SHOULD’VE BEEN ONE TO GOD-DAMMIT, MAL SHOULD NOT BE THE ONLY MAGIC USER
EDIT; SHE COULD CONJOUR WIND AND LIGHTNING WITH JUST A WORD-WOMAN IS POWERFUL
just. remembered that this morning i had a dream where neil cicierega became a huge fan of spamton and started writing songs about him and one of them was called "silly/sad little thing" and i vividly remember that one of the lyrics was "silly little thing when i pick you up and pet your behind all the stars in the world align" and there was a music video too where he just picked up spamton and put him over his shoulder like a baby and stroked him while spamton cried tears of joy but spamton looked like this
some toronto-canadian things in turning red!
- iconography! the canadian flag in the classroom, the maple leaf shirt, the blue jay, the moose bobblehead, and ofc the CN tower.
even the location design looks so much like canada!
- loonies and toonies!!!!!
- learning french as a second language, learning about the provinces instead of states
- timbits for breakfast!
- hats are touqes!!! punks are hosers!!!!
- the people in the background wearing headscarves!! it's very common to see many people donning them in the city. love that diversity
- I haven't personally been to chinatown (I don't live in toronto, i've only been there three times) so i can't comment on its authenticity but i'm sure other people can weigh in!
- there's also mentions of Celine Dion, a canadian singer!
- also the american concert dates are first on the list, and are mistaken for a canadian tour date. most relatable thing ever LOL
