A unique web series created by Flash animators Cary and Michael Huang, aka Jacknjellify, and inspired by Homestar Runner and Total Drama Island, Battle For Dream Island is one of the weirdest series yet.Okay, so there's this luxurious island. And there are twenty anthropomorphic objects that all want the island for themselves. But only one will get to own it. Who is it? The pencil? The ice cube? The golf ball? The flower? The coin? Or any of the fifteen others? Well, there's only one way to settle this... and it's a reality series, where they will compete in challenges until only one remains.But who will get voted off each episode? That is entirely up to the viewers.Each episode comes out on a monthly basis, and with each episode crazier than the one before it, who will end up winning the big prize is anyone's guess!The second season is currently in progress.Now with it's own drinking game!
Leafy: How are we in space, yet able to talk, breathe, paddle, and not explode?
Speaker Box: Budget cuts.
Berserk Button: Needle does NOT like being called "Needy". Her first instinct is to slap the offender and say "Don't call me Needy!" Sometimes, it actually benefits the offender.
And Book will freeze you with a syringe if you call her "Well-Read".
Big Damn Hero: Firey saves Leafy from being executed by the other contestants in episode 25.
Bittersweet Ending: At the end of Season One, Leafy escapes an execution attempt from the other contestants with the help of Firey, but without recovery centers, they are all doomed to the restraints of mortality.
Subverted when the hand-powered recovery center is created.
Blatant Lies: Match and Bubble disguise themselves as trees right in front of Firey's replacement speaker box's eyes (if it has any)
Book Ends: The following case is Up to Eleven: The first and last words spoken in the first season was "yeah", said by Match to Pencil.
Also, as lampshaded by the Speaker Box, Flower was the first and last contestant to be eliminated.
The Cake Is a Lie: Sometimes the safe contestants don't get any cake at a Cake At Stake Ceremony. They might get something else instead... or nothing at all.
Cluster Bleep Bomb: In episode 19, David rolls down the hill and bleeps to the tune of "Mary Had a Little Lamb."
Speaker Box: Sorry, Woody. You didn't not ain't not get no any none of nothing.
Convection Schmonvection: Episode 22 has the contestants escaping from an active volcano. Firey can handle the lava just fine, but as for the others, well... expect the Recovery Center to go into overdrive.
Death Is Cheap: Due to Recovery Centers that will respawn anyone upon death.
Disproportionate Retribution: Leafy gave Ice Cube a red ball she found to help her in the contest. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a maroon ball, so Ice Cube incurred a penalty. The next episode, Ice Cube let a Chain of People fall when Leafy called for help.
The entire cast wants Leafy dead just because she stole Dream Island.
Love Triangle: Coiny, Needle and Snowball. However, Snowball and Needle barely interact after Episode 1 for mysterious reasons. The Needle-Coiny couple is briefly referred to again in a split-second cameo by a recommended character in Episode 21.
Nice Girl: Deconstructed with Leafy. Subverted in the last episode in the other contestants' eyes (except Firey), when she selfishly gets Dream Island for herself.
NO INDOOR VOICE: Yellow Face. Whenever he says something, he has to yell it. "HMM... I SURE DO!"
Paper-Thin Disguise: Match and especially Bubble use Gelatin to disguise themselves as trees to be in the game as members of FreeSmart. Needless to say, despite the disguises being worn seperately, Firey's replacement box failed to see through the disguise.
Retcon and Sequel Reset: Implied. The beginning of BFDIA undoes the last part about Firey saving Leafy, and pretends that the rest of the cast still hates her.
Saying Too Much: When Leafy steals Dream Island, this line gives it all away.
Leafy: I know. Especially because Firey never received Dream Island at all.
Shout-Out: BFDIA's fourth episode, Zeeky Boogy Doog. Even more played when it is realized that it is named after Firey's suggestion for the island name, Zeeky Boogy Doog. After he suggests it, cue Bomby falling into the incinerator.
Rocky was able to talk, but, according to Tennis Ball, he forgot how to talk in episode 4.
Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Averted STRONGLY with most female characters, due to their nature as inanimate objects with no eyelashes. Especially noticeable when Larynx Dissonance is also an issue with a character, especially Leafy. Played (relatively) straight with Flower and Puffball.
