I was so tired of being a flower.
Howdy!

Hopes and Dreams is the 87th track in the Undertale Soundtrack. It debuted in Toby Fox's video "Undertale Release Date." In this video, the text "Releasing with Hopes and Dreams" displays while Final Power – a reversed version of Hopes and Dreams - plays in the background. In-game, it plays during the first phase of the final fight of the True Pacifist Route against Asriel Dreemurr.

Trivia

  • The song is slowed down to 95% speed in-game and in the Undertale Soundtrack. (Original version)
  • This song is largely a fast-paced remix of Once Upon a Time, with a similarly fast-paced, hopeful-sounding remix of Your Best Friend at 1:30 and faintly at 1:18.
  • At about 0:21 (when the song kicks into the beat), the visual effects of the battle cue in.
    • The visual effects do not disappear as the track restarts.
  • The name of this song is alluded to on different occasions:
  • In the Undertale Soundtrack on Spotify, the song's name is displayed as "Hopes And Dreams" instead of the A being lowercase.
  • Hopes and Dreams is inspired by Anamanaguchi's music.[1]
