The YTP total amount from the intermission screen. (old)

You Thought Points (or YTPs) is a point system in Baldi's Basics.


The Player earns YTPs depending on how well they perform certain tasks. Some ways to earn YTPs are such during field trips, dealing with some characters, and using structures in some places. They can be spent on items and special favors (such as desiring to expel a character from the school) in a shop location they will stop at between floors within Here School.

  • You Thought Points are first revealed in the Kickstarter campaign blog post since July 31, 2018.[1]
  • The acronym "YTPs" might be a reference to YouTube Poop, the infamous video mashups in the YouTube web containing editing pre-existing media sources for humorous, obscene, annoying, confusing, shocking, détournement, or dramatic purposes.
  • You Thought Points values appear on the screen after the Player completes each level in the Kickstarter exclusive demo. Before V1.2 update, these values used to be only for placeholders as they always had the same amount of YTPs, because the methods were not implemented. As of the V1.2 update, they have added a working counter and the Player can earn YTPs in multiple places.
  • The Player will lose the You Thought Points earned from certain floor, if caught by Baldi.
