BFDI Ranking: 12th, BFB/TPOT Rank: 8th
Team: Squishy Cherries (BFDI 1-4), Squashy Grapes (BFDI 8-12), A Better Name Than That (BFB 1-16), Have Nots (BFB 17-24)
Voiced by: Michael Huang
A malicious building block. He has a ruthless, aggressive personality and enjoys pulling pranks on the more fragile contestants such as Bubble and Ice Cube, and he even has his own segment called "Blocky's Funny Doings International" in which he utilizes the Recovery Centers to create infinite loops of a character dying over and over again.


  • Affably Evil: Blocky’s pranks are typically lethal and he’s killed others on purpose numerous times, but he’s not an entirely bad person outside of that.
  • Ax-Crazy: He has killed the most contestants in the show of all, at 164. In the first episode alone, he debuts trying to kill Bubble, stating he is "just in the mood to hurt someone". He also pulls various cruel pranks on contestants. And then in BFB he breaks Tennis Ball and later Golf Ball both for trying to be in charge. If Ruby is to be believed, he's actually killed Bubble more than 2500 times. For a while after the destruction of the Recovery Centers at the start of BFB, he cooled down since they were his main inspiration for pranks.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: Part of a jock posse along with Pen and Eraser.
  • Beyond the Impossible: Blocky makes fun of the sun, somehow turning it into an ice cube.
    Blocky: Hey, Sun! You're... uh... pretty lame.
  • The Bus Came Back: Rejoins the game in episode 9.
  • Character Development: After the split, he gradually becomes more considerate of other’s feelings, particularly Woody, who he used to bully back in BFDI. This comes full circle in BFB 29, where he supports Woody's decision to not do pranks any more.
  • Cool Big Bro: As of BFB 2, he seems to act as a sort of brotherly figure to Grassy, who can often be seen sitting on his head.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Despite being a Jerk Jock, he calls out Golf Ball on being mean to Grassy.
  • Flanderization: Blocky was more of a borderline Bart Simpson-type prankster in the early episodes, but after he rejoined, he went from just a prank who showed affection for others at times to more of a Sociopathic Hero and a Barbaric Bully. He gets better, though.
  • Freudian Excuse: Uses one when confronted by Bubble in the first episode.
    Blocky: I'm just in the mood to hurt someone!
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: While Blocky isn't evil, he usually pranks and attacks others for comedy.
  • It's All About Me: Claims to the "star of the show" in episode 17 in order to avoid being eliminated. A flashback shows him being eliminated in episode 4 which shows that this is not the case.
  • Jerk Jock: Along with Eraser and Snowball, he is this.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: In spite of his aggressiveness and bullying, he calls Golf Ball out for not treating Grassy respectfully and in later episodes, he starts warming up to Woody.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The mean to Pen's nice and Eraser's in-between. Blocky is one of the most violent characters in the series and while his temper isn't anywhere as bad as Snowball's or Flower's, he's much more prone to killing others than either of them.
  • Pet the Dog: He forms a friendship with Grassy. He stands up for him to Golf Ball and Grassy can be seen sitting on his head in some episodes.
    • In later post-split episodes, he even starts becoming more considerate towards Woody, someone who he used to constantly prank and bully in earlier seasons.
  • The Prankster: Is the prime suspect to spread mischief via pranks throughout the show and has a show dedicated to his pranking shenanigans. Unfortunately for everyone, his usual definition of a prank is a creative way to kill someone.
  • Put on a Bus: He does not receive enough votes to compete in season 2.
  • Red Is Heroic: Downplayed, while he is the color red, he is often very selfish & violent, and has no problem murdering people, but still, he has mellowed out quite a bit in BFB.
  • Slasher Smile: Just look at his image.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Blocky almost always prioritises pranking people over his own wellbeing, and has lost his life several because of that. His standout moments include giving another team a cardboard spaceship with the intent of having them burn up as they approach the sun (only for it to happen to his team instead), and telling Four a terrible pun, to which he immediately responded by mutilating and recovering him to teach him a lesson.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Starting from BFB, he's started to act considerate and less of a bully. Although it was subverted in BFB 17 as he went back to how he acted, it became double subverted as he became nicer over time during the split to the point of respecting Woody.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He spends much of his time trying to kill Bubble and Ice Cube For the Evulz and once broke Golf Ball in half out of anger.

    Bubble 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bubble_teamicon.png
BFDI Rank: 3rd, BFB/TPOT Rank: 10th
Team: Squashy Grapes (BFDI), FreeSmart (BFDIA, unofficial contestant), iance (BFB 1-16), Have Cots (BFB 17-23)
Voiced by: Michael Huang
A soap bubble. One of the nicer members of Pencil’s alliance, but she’s something of a sensitive doormat since she has a lot of difficulty standing up for herself. She also gets popped a lot.


  • Back for the Dead: More often than not she'll be revived only to die again shortly after.
  • Beyond the Impossible: This phenomenal event happened in Vote Yoylecake, where she pops Blocky. Blocky even says he can't be popped because he's wood, but she still somehow pops him.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: With Match and Pencil.
  • Butt-Monkey: The biggest one on the show, see The Chew Toy below.
  • The Chew Toy / Cosmic Plaything: Bubble's one of the most fragile characters in the series and frequently gets the misfortune of being prone to getting bullied and frequently popped by others.
  • Catchphrase: "Yoylecake!".
  • Cute, but Cacophonic: A very lovable character, but her high-pitched voice and unique accent may get to some.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Finally decides to kill Blocky in "Vote Yoylecake" after he attempts to pop her for the umpteenth time, and succeeds in popping him.
  • Elmuh Fudd Syndwome: A lot of her vowels are replaced with "oi's".
  • Extreme Doormat: She cracks easily when pressured by others. When she tries to stop Lightning from zapping Fanny in BFB 1, Pencil proceeds to mock her for going against the alliance’s objectives and reminds her of her new “bember” status, so Bubble gives up and lets him electrocute Fanny.
  • Glass Cannon: Shown to be this in Vote Yoylecake, where she somehow pops Blocky.
  • Killed Off for Real: Flower popped her after destroying all the recovery centers, preventing her from coming back to life.
    • Back from the Dead: She's revived shortly after by Match and Pencil in BFDIA, and while she's killed in one of Bomby's explosions the introduction of the HPRC in the next episode rectifies that. Unfortunately, her death prevents her from competing in the season.
    Puffball Speaker Box: You're not an official BFDI contestant!
  • The Last DJ: In BFB 1, she was strongly against Lightning being used by Match and Pencil to zap unwanted contestants. They then see her as a traitor and reprimand her twice. First, by demoting her to "bember", then, by restating her "bemberhood". This makes Pencil the first eliminated contestant in BFB, after she and Match made their team lose because of their despotism.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: She believes Match’s elimination in BFB was her fault since she didn’t immediately forgive her for verbally pressuring and demoting her, so she goes around forgiving the other members of iance hoping it won’t happen again.
  • Nice Girl: A very caring individual.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: Bubble is always Nice, in comparison to Pencil and Match, whose niceness varies depending on the season.
    • In season 2, Bubble is a Nice girl, to Match’s bullying-natured Mean, and Pencil’s slight jerkass, but sympathetic In-Between.
    • In season 4, Bubble is a Nice girl, to Pencil’s bullying, jerkass Mean, and Match’s jerkass, but wanting forgiveness In-Between.
  • Nightmare Face: Pulls off one per YouTuber suggestion in "Gardening Hero".
  • Team Mom: Of FreeSmart. She's welcoming of Book and Ice Cube, calling them "munchkins" as an affectionate name. Giving that she hates when people harm each other and is very sensitive, she's this trope in general.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Bubble gives a well deserved one to Flower in "Return of the Hang Glider."
    Bubble: Flower, I'm tired of this. [...] I mean, I'm tired of your self-centeredness. I'm tired of the way you act around us. You know what that's mean? I'm tired of you! [...] Flower, your unpopularity is your own fault. Everyone hates you because we can't stand all you talking about yourself!
  • They Killed Kenny Again: She is so fragile; she's died at least ninety times, but fortunately there's always a Bubble Recovery Center lying around!
  • Token Good Teammate: Bubble is a hell of a lot kinder than Pencil and Match, preferring not to deliberately hurt others' feelings or manipulate them.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: She sure loves her Yoylecake.
  • Vocal Evolution: Her voice gets a bit lower by BFDI 3, and finishes deepening by BFDI 6, but gets a lot higher in BFDI 13 to BFDIA 5, only to get lower later in the episode, but in BFB, her voice becomes over exaggeratedly high.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Although she doesn't start out like this, Bubble gradually becomes this trope throughout the series, and makes it through the final challenge in BFDI very quickly, earning her the final immunity ticket.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: 3 episodes after the incident from BFB 8, Bubble finally brings herself to stand up to Match and chews her out for acting like Pencil by verbally pressuring and demoting her when she just wanted someone to support her during Pencil’s absence.

    Coiny

BFDI Rank: 16th, BFDIA Rank: N/A, BFB/TPOT Rank: ??th
Team: Squashy Grapes (BFDI), W.O.A.H. Bunch (BFDIA), The Losers! (BFB 1-16), Team8s (TPOT 1-)
Voiced by: Michael Huang
A penny. In BFDI, Coiny had an unfriendly rivalry with Firey for unexplained reasons, and that was pretty much the extent of his personality. In BFDIA, Coiny becomes a more rounded character, assuming a leader role over his team and coercing several contestants into switching to his team, though in spite of this he’s a pretty friendly guy.


  • Arch-Nemesis: Firey. See his character below.
  • Character Development: He was quite immature in BFDI, mostly thanks to his unfriendly rivalry with Firey. When BFDIA rolls around, he chooses to ignore him when he tries to provoke him and is more of a strategist. By BFB, the two of them have stopped their conflict altogether.
  • Disney Death: Submerged in lava in BFB 14, only to discover when he regains consciousness in the next episode that his melting point is too high for it to kill him.
  • Flat Character: Back during BFDI, the main extents of his personality were hating Firey and constantly getting into slap battles with him.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Although he wasn't trying to, he opened the garbage chute for Naily, Woody, and Cake to go through, falling into the lava and apparently dying.
  • Jerkass to One: He’s generally friendly, but in Season 1 he frequently insulted and belittled Firey. He eventually grows out of it.
  • Kissing In A Tree: Does this to Tennis Ball and Golf Ball in the first episode. She disapproves.
  • The Leader: Of W.O.A.H. Bunch along with Pin.
  • Living Currency: Can't be any more explicit from a walking, talking coin.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Extorts several members of Team No Name into joining W.O.A.H. Bunch.
  • Money for Nothing: Being in proximity to Nickel can spawn thousands of dollars within seconds, but the only real use of money the contestants have during their time in BFDI is to bribe each other.
  • Nice Guy: After growing out of his rivalry with Firey, Coiny ultimately turns out to be very supportive and kind, encouraging Pin whenever she loses confidence and is one of the few characters who genuinely enjoys Leafy’s presence after she bought Dream Island.
  • Reality Warper: If he gets too close to Nickel, they start warping space and creating countless amounts of money from nothing.
  • Schemer: In addition to his methods of forcing other contestants to join his team, he has come up with several plans that have saved it from elimination.
  • Took a Level in Cheerfulness: He seems to have gotten more cheerful & confident by the time IDFB started, for example, he screams that the potatoes would taste delicious. He also shows shades of his cheerfulness in BFB 17 & TPOT 1.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Coiny was a bit of a brat early on due to his rivalry with Firey, but in BFDIA, he becomes more of a leader figure and in BFB, he’s more than willing to help his friends when they’re in a funk.
  • Undesirable Prize: He lets out a sigh of disappointment after winning a handful of seeds in BFDIA 2. Averted after they turn out to be Yoyle seeds and the competition of the episode was to make Yoyle-stew.
  • Unfortunate Names: Decides to name his team Wheel Ooze A Hole Bunch, which sounds like "We('ll) lose a whole bunch".
  • Would Rather Suffer: Elects to join the team with only one other member on it rather than the team consisting of every single other contestant after Firey tries to slap him.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are!: When Pin worries about the possibility of Loser being eliminated since her team relied on him so much, Coiny reminds her that he’s her right-hand man and she herself has the potential to be a heroic leader. Sadly becomes Harsher in Hindsight since Loser is voted off in the next episode.

Voiced by: Michael Huang
A rubber eraser. Typically grumpy and unamused, but he has a bit of an impatient streak.


  • Absurd Phobia: In BFB 1, he is shown to have a fear of pentagons. He freaks out further when he learns that Foldy and Ruby technically are pentagons, too.
  • Apathetic Citizen: A guy with a very bored and laid back personality.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: Part of a trio of jocks along with Blocky and Pen.
  • Catchphrase: "Which is...?"
  • Character Development: He becomes less of a lazy jerk and becomes nicer over the course of pre-split BFB and TPOT.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He has a bit of a snarky demeanor.
  • Jerk Jock: Together with Blocky as one of the "tougher" characters.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: A bit rough around the edges figuratively and literally, but he has no problem with being friendly with others most of the time.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The in-between to Pen's nice and Blocky's mean. He shares the latter's jock-ish attitude, and while he's not as cordial as Pen is he's definitely more good with people and less prone to violence than Blocky.
  • Only Sane Man: One of the few contestants who doesn’t have any weird quirks, generally being more laidback and deadpan.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He has a tough demeanor and believes that Men Don't Cry since he refuses to participate in a challenge involving crying, but he does like the color pink, especially since he himself is pink.
    Snowball: "The balloons were pink! Pink is too girly!"
    Eraser: "I would disagree. I think pink is quite manly."

    Firey

Voiced by: Michael Huang
A flame. He is energetic and excitable, but in BFDI he had an unfriendly rivalry with Coiny. Prior to the start of BFDI, he was the title character of many of Michael and Cary's comics featuring the series' characters.


  • Arch-Nemesis: Firey and Coiny loathed each other with a passion until BFB, constantly insulting and slapping one another. Even now, they generally tolerate each other at best as part of The Losers.
  • Big Damn Hero: Saves Leafy from being executed by the other contestants in the BFDI finale by swooping in with a hang-glider and whisking her away.
  • Big, Stupid Doodoo-Head: Firey calls the Have Cots the Have Crybabies on the spot. They take it seriously anyway.
  • The Chew Toy: Like Bubble and Ice Cube, he's easy to kill.
  • Decoy Protagonist: Despite being the titular character of BFDI's predecessor comic series Total Firey Island, he was eliminated halfway through.
  • The Ditz: He can be naive and scatterbrained at times, such as when he fails to realize that Leafy is vulnerable to lava.
  • Elimination Houdini: Ended up winning BFDI, and went through the entirety of BFDIA, IDFB, and pre-split BFB without getting the boot once. Averted in BFB 25, where he finally gets eliminated after a grand total of 10 years, and on the same episode number where he won the original BFDI.
  • Enemy Mine: Despite his hatred for Coiny, he allowed him to come on Dream Island.
  • Guttural Growler: A weird example. His voice is high-pitched and screechy, yet still very gravelly.
  • It's All About Me: He can be a bit self-absorbed at times. An example of this is him avoiding Leady on purpose just because she stole Dream Island from him even though he rejected her from entering the island.
  • Jerkass to One: Firey and Coiny had a mutual hatred of each other during BFDI, but it eventually quieted down by the time BFB rolled around and they joined the same team. On the other hand, from BFDIA onwards he starts deliberately ignoring Leafy or ostracizing her whenever they aren't alone as a result of her betrayal in "Return of the Hang Glider".
  • Kill It with Water: His weakness and why he refuses to take part in the final challenge in "Barriers and Pitfalls" involving scooping up water. Firey will hurt himself if he sweats, will likely die if he can't escape rainfall and being injected with freeze juice is a death sentence as he will be extinguished upon thawing out.
  • Narcissist: Implied; given that both his speaker box and Flower's speaker box were the judges of the beauty contest that Firey and Flower won thanks to their respective speaker boxes and because contestant-created speaker boxes generally have similar personalities to their creators, Firey might have a sliver of narcissism.
  • Nice Guy: While his rivalry with Coiny can make him somewhat obnoxious, Firey is a good person through and through.
  • Only Friend: Leafy has alienated practically everyone by the time of BFB to the point that Firey (who is actively ignoring her to avoid scorn from the other contestants) is the closest thing she has to a friend.
  • Playing with Fire: But of course.
  • Redemption Equals Death: Firey builds another ferris wheel during BFB 24 to apologize to Leafy for treating her badly for so long, at the cost of putting himself up for elimination since he didn't make a party for Four and resulting in his very first canon elimination. Woody's prank also ends up with him being dead at the time as well.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Whenever he dies or shows signs of his fear of heights, he lets out a very high-pitched scream. Just listen to him.
  • Series Mascot: With the character being ingrained into the series from the beginning, and being relatable to the predominant young boy audience, he takes this role.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Like Bubble and Ice Cube, he's died too many times, but luckily there's always a Firey Recovery Center close by.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: He is not kind to Leafy in BFB 15, revealing that he was ignoring her on purpose, outright stating that nobody likes her after what she did in the BFDI finale, and doubting that she has any friends.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Chocolate cake, so much so that he makes one for the cake contest in BFDI 4.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Leafy as of late. They're trying to avoid each other, but circumstances makes this impossible. They make up in BFB 22.
  • Vocal Evolution: His voice was higher and a lot raspier in the earlier episodes.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: He suffers from aquaphobia and acrophobia.

A charming centaury flower. Despite the name of her species, Flower is far from charming. If she doesn't get what she wants, she'll either threaten harm on you or give you a kick to the face.


  • Berserk Button: If you value your life, do not call her ugly or insult her fashion line. It doesn't matter where you are, she will find you and kick you with horrifying force.
  • Character Development: While still a narcissist, she becomes less aggressive in BFB, more willing to put actual effort in challenges or to help her team and has started to befriend Ruby.
  • The Fashionista: Considers herself one, at least. She's started a clothing line during BFB, but the main reason why anyone tolerates her tacky, glitter-covered sweaters is because they don't want to incur her wrath.
  • Foul Flower: Is a pretty-looking flower with pink petals, but is most certainly not a pleasant person.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Disliked by most of the contestants because of her narcissistic personality and constantly screwing over or trying to kill everyone else. The events of the finale firmly cements her status as that, with even reviving her being considered a very bad act. While she's not as hated in BFB, several contestants still want nothing to do with her.
  • Girly Bruiser: A narcissitic fashionista with a penchant for physical violence if angered.
  • Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: She's a fashionista who cares a lot about her looks, but she also has one hell of a temper and isn’t unwilling to get physical if provoked.
  • Go Mad from the Isolation: Clearly goes crazy after being locked in the TLC for months.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: It’s very easy to set her off.
  • It's All About Me: Flower is ridiculously self-centered and obsessed with her beauty.
  • Jerkass: The only way you can even hope to get respect from Flower is if you suck up to her. She's incredibly petty and will not hesitate to attack or inconvenience others.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Granted, in BFB she’s still a temperamental Narcissist, but she’s nowhere near as bad as she used to be and ends up forming a few genuine friendships with others.
  • Kick Chick: Piss off Flower, and she'll thank you by giving you a free trip to the stratosphere with her foot.
  • Large Ham: She certainly gets hammy when it's about her ego.
  • Lean and Mean: In season one, she was incredibly arrogant and this trait also coincided with her skinny shape.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Despite the fact that she's as skinny as David and Dora, she's more than capable of carrying the Master Recovery Center with nothing but her bare hands.
  • Narcissist: Big time.
  • Nice Girl: Towards the end of BFB, she becomes much more respectful towards others.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: One of the few non-David contestants to have a stick figure body, alongside Robot Flower and Balloony.
  • Pink Means Feminine: She has pink petals, is very into fashion, and cares a lot about her appearance.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Inverted. In the Season 1 finale, she's easily able to lift the Master Recovery Center, which is made of metal and is the size of a building, and throw it into an incinerator, but in the first episode of BFB, she struggles to open a jar of cyanide. However, she gradually regains her strength as the season progresses - being able to kick people into the air with ease and rushing to a warehouse miles away within minutes to retaliate against someone insulting her fashion designs.
    Blocky: Have you always been this pathetic, Flower?
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Mellows out considerably after BFB begins, partially due to Ruby's influence. She even begins willingly trying to help out her teammates in challenges in contrast to how lazy she was in BFDI.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The fashionable girly girl to Leafy’s optimistic tomboy.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: She’s entomophobic (afraid of insects).

Voiced by: Michael Huang
A golf ball. Her bossy nature alienates her from a majority of the contestants (except Tennis Ball), but she makes up for it with her intellect.


  • Birds of a Feather: Is often seen together with Tennis Ball. Both are nerdy and both are sports balls.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Heavily implied to have one of these. A flashback in IDFB shows a white ball (which is presumably her) hiding behind a vase as a spiked club proceeds to smash them. What happened afterward is currently unknown, but the incident most certainly left her traumatized.
  • Giver of Lame Names:
    • Accidentally. In episode 9, when Firey wants the name of the new team to be the Squashy Grapes, Golf Ball tells him that Leafy's team is already the Squashy Grapes, and that their team name has to be another name. Because of this, their team name ends up being "Another Name".
    • Happens again in BFB 1. Observing that one of the teams has already named themselves, she says that her team needs to have a better name than that. TV takes this literally.
    • Almost happens again in TPOT 1. She chastises Pen for wanting to be called “Death P.A.C.T. Again” and says that their team name would have to be something else, but she realizes that she’s about to name the team something lame and freezes up. Unfortunately for her, Tennis Ball ends up inadvertently naming the team “Are You Okay” when he tries to ask what’s wrong.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: The tiny girl to Tennis Ball's huge guy.
  • Insufferable Genius: Clearly a smart one but she gets egocentric and tactless with her fellow teammates.
  • It's All About Me: In BFDIA 5a, she claims that if she's eliminated, her team will be plunged into chaos.
    Firey: That didn't happen last time.
  • The Leader: The self-proclaimed one of Team No-Name. She also tries to be the leader of A Better Name Than That, but 8-Ball ends up taking over instead, much to her chagrin.
  • Older Than They Look: If the BFDI Books of Tips and Tricks is to be believed then she's over a billion years old, but this could likely be overexaggerated.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Golf Ball is the loud and bossy Red Oni to Tennis Ball's introverted and calm Blue Oni.
  • Reverse Psychology: After her team turned to 8-Ball in BFB, she used this strategy in BFB 3 to manipulate the team into swinging all 50 times.
  • The Smart Guy: One of the more intelligent contestants, being obsessed with calculations and knowledge in addition to owning a massive underground laboratory.
  • Supervillain Lair: Owns a secret underground factory, complete with its own incinerator.
  • Tiny Tyrannical Girl: She may be small, but her words are pure, insufferable authority.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Has a gruff and slightly nasal voice. Lampshaded by Pen in episode 11.
    Pen: Golf Ball sounds like a boy, even though she's a girl, and that's just wrong!
    • One of Book's pages also mentions this trope applying to Golf Ball.

Voiced by: Cary Huang (BFDI, BFDIA, IDFB), Kenzie Bryant (BFB 2 - BFB 12), Satomi Hinatsu (BFB 1, BFB 13-present)
An ice cube. While generally quiet, she's best known for being very easy to kill and becoming very angry whenever something bad happens to her and swears revenge on the offender.


  • Ax-Crazy: Somewhat subdued, but she has let people fall off a cliff for the sake of being kicked by Flower, and has made thoughts of burning Pencil, Match, and Book.
  • Backstabbing the Alpha Bitch: Having enough of Book and her being apathetic towards her teammates, Ice Cube leaves Bleh so she'll be happier.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: On occasion, it's shown she has an Ax-Crazy streak, such as leaving Eraser, Pen, Blocky, Leafy, Bubble, Match, Pencil and Firey to fall off of a cliff just because as vengeance for being mistreated by Match, Pencil, and Flower. She also imagined seeing others burn.
  • Butt-Monkey: Is frequently mistreated and bullied by others. She also gets shattered or melted very frequently.
  • The Chew Toy: Is right behind Bubble as the most frequently killed off contestant in the series.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Match and Pencil clearly dislike her and constantly treat her like dirt yet she wants nothing more than to be a part of their friend group.
  • Kill It with Fire: Her ultimate weakness.
  • Literally Shattered Lives: Ice Cube is frequently offed by light impacts to her body.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Decides to switch teams due to Book's tyranny, and eventually ends up joining iance. She is still technically a member of Bleh, however.
  • Stealth Pun: Being a vengeful ice cube, she may be a walking pun on the saying "revenge is a dish best served cold."
  • Stock Audio Clip: Past episode 4, almost every single line of dialogue she has is recycled. This is taken to some impressive lengths given that she was in almost every episode of BFDI. This record was broken in BFDIA 5, and lampshaded in BFB 1.
  • The Dog Bites Back: She generally won't give up an opportunity to enact vengeance against someone.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Vulnerable to melting and shattering, but luckily there's always an Ice Cube Recovery Center lying around!

Voiced by: Michael Huang
A lemon leaf. Generally extroverted and friendly, but she has a defensive streak that mostly shows up when her kindness is rejected.


  • Ambiguous Disorder: Seems to be a little bit bipolar.
  • Berserk Button: Do not reject her kindness.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: In the BFDI finale, she stole Dream Island out of rage of being 2nd place and Firey allowing everyone but her to come into it, causing everyone sans Firey to hate her. After fleeing to Yoyleland, she develops a murderous demeanor, trying to kill Needle, Gelatin, and Puffball after they arrive.
    • She also zaps Lollipop with a laser when she had enough of her attitude in BFB 20.
  • Character Development: Minor, but she is somewhat less selfish in BFB 29 and 30, begging Flower not to be selfish in the former, and wanting the BFDI so she could give it to Firey in the later. With the exception of BFB 27, she's back to her season 1 personality throughout the latter half of the fourth season, and is less controlling of her teamates.
  • Control Freak: Becomes this in BFB, obsessively micromanaging her teammates and giving them jobs during challenges.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Turns on everyone in the BFDI finale out of selfishness and then becomes a recurring antagonist in BFDIA and IDFB. By the time BFB rolls around, she's (mostly) trying to be cordial again.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: The events of BFDI's finale and BFDIA have made Leafy quite unpopular among the other objects - even Firey doesn't like to be seen being friendly to her by anyone else. When she is voted back into BFB in "Get to the Top in 500 Steps", her former team just backs away from her slowly. And in BFB 22, when she leaves the Have Cots to check on the Have Nots, they celebrate.
  • Genki Girl: She can be very energetic and talkative when she’s at her best.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: A nonlethal example. She takes the blame for stealing Donut's second diary, which Firey had stolen. Not only does this revive her friendship with Firey, it gave her a lot of votes in the comments - not only nearly half the total for the episode, but also breaking a new record.
  • Informed Kindness: While she is a nice character, she does have several mean moments. However, her list of niceness states that she's eight levels above "reality-ending nice." All the other contestants, asides from Bubble, are way below the "mean" level, despite many of them being Leafy's friends.
  • Innocently Insensitive:
    • In spite of her selfish tendencies and somewhat controlling nature, Leafy is unaware of these flaws and believes she’s genuinely trying to do good. She eventually realizes these flaws got her eliminated, so she apologizes to the viewers for her behavior in her rejoining audition.
    • After finding out she rejoined the game, Leafy starts crying Tears of Joy and unintentionally uses Bracelety’s drawing for Ice Cube as a tissue not long after she’s asked to give it to her.
    • At the end of BFB 15, Clock is finally recovered and the other Losers deny forgetting about him. When he demands to know what episode they're in, Leafy excitedly answers.
  • It's All About Me: Leafy, despite her overall friendliness, is actually quite selfish, evident by the way she lashes out at Bubble when she unintentionally rejects her acts of kindness. When disagreed with, she can become defensive and try to prove that her opinion is the superior one. This comes to a head in BFDI's finale when she buys Dream Island from the Announcer when Firey allows everyone but her in it due to her displeasure with his Ferris wheel in the previous episode.
  • Jerkass Ball: Gets a bit unhinged in BFB 27. Especially in her interactions with Gelatin in that episode. She would not let him get immunity (at first), even though Gelatin pointed out that she got mad at Teardrop when she would not let her have immunity last episode.
  • Kill It with Fire: Gets burned to death at least once. It doesn’t help that, in later episodes, she spends much of her time with Firey.
  • Knife Nut: After being slapped by Needle in Yoyleland, she tries to murder her, Gelatin and Puffball with knives.
  • Larynx Dissonance: Due to her deep, boyish voice in later episodes, fans often mistake her for a male.
  • Never Live It Down: In-universe - Firey will not let anyone forget that she stole Dream Island at the end of the first season.
  • Nice Girl: She was initially very helpful to her fellow contestants (Ice Cube especially) and got along with most of them, which makes her shift in personality jarring from the BFDI finale onwards.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Is actually a football in a leaf costume, as revealed in "Return of the Hang Glider."
  • Slasher Smile: She has one when she zaps Lollipop with a laser in BFB 20.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Firey as of late. They're trying to avoid each other, but circumstances makes this impossible. They make up in BFB 22.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The optimistic tomboy to Flower’s girly girl

A match. Match behaves like a Valley Girl and often says "like" in her sentences. She is best friends with Pencil.


  • Berserk Button:
    • She doesn’t take it well when the Announcer uses the word “apiece.”
    • Match is the only one who is allowed to call Pencil "Pence-Pence".
  • Beta Bitch: Second in command in her alliance, and she and Pencil love to boss around their alliance and teammates, especially Bubble. Promoted to Alpha Bitch once Pencil is eliminated in BFB.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Match hates key lime pie and fruitcake.
  • Elimination Houdini: In-universe - when she was eliminated in BFDIA 5a, Pencil tied some rope to her leg in order to keep her from being flung into the Locker of Losers. She disguises herself as a tree to avoid Firey Speaker Box's suspicion but is found out and removed at the end of the challenge. She's unable to return the favor in BFB due to how fast Four sucks up Pencil.
  • Freudian Excuse: When trying to reason with Bubble in BFB 11, she claims the reason she treated her so harshly during the eighth challenge was so she could act as a placeholder for Pencil during her absence and set an example so the other members of iance wouldn’t screw up. Bubble doesn’t immediately forgive her.
  • Girl Posse: One of the primary three members of Pencil's alliance, and almost equal in authority.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Pencil.
  • Hypocrite: Fanny accuses her of being this, as she berated Bubble for the entirety of Episode 8’s challenge just because she didn’t know the answers to a majority of the questions, while Match herself was no better.
  • Jerkass: Incredibly judgmental towards people she dislikes - Spongy especially. Even her own friends aren't safe from her torment.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: In BFB 8, despite her verbally pressuring Bubble for most of the challenge, she rightfully points out that iance should not be up for elimination due to Stapy’s cheating.
  • Like Is, Like, a Comma: Inserts the word “like” in her sentences almost every time she talks. Taken Up to Eleven during her elimination in BFDI, which actually provides the page quote.
    Match: You’ve got to win this for, like, like, like, like, the both of us!
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: She is the mean to Bubble’s nice and Pencil’s in-between in Season 2, but is the in-between to Bubble's nice and Pencil's mean in Season 4.
  • Pet the Dog: In BFB 5, she plays Spongy-Cake (a game she and Pencil play to insult Spongy) with Spongy himself.
  • Tyrant Takes the Helm: After Pencil ends up being the first contestant voted out of BFB, Match assumes leadership of iance and lords over her teammates with an iron fist to make up for Pencil's absence, with Bubble taking most of the abuse. It backfires spectacularly and she winds up being voted out the next time iance is up for elimination.
  • Valley Girl

A sewing needle. Needle is normally a kind, quiet contestant, but she becomes quite angry if someone calls her "Needy"note  and promptly slaps the offender. The other contestants love to tease her for this quirk.


  • Abandoned Catchphrase:
    • Hasn't told anybody to not call her "Needy" since BFB.
    • She originally had, "Aw, seriously?", which is now associated with David.
  • Art Shift: Starting with BFB 11, she is now in CG due to a cake Leafy gave her.
  • Berserk Button: Don’t call her Needy, or she’ll slap you.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Slaps Leafy when she was not even talking about her when she said "I'm glad I'm not too needy" to herself.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Everyone used to insist on calling her Needy, and she at one point attempts to explain why she hates the moniker so much before being cut off by her elimination sending her skyward.
  • Flanderization: In later episodes of season 1, her personality was consumed by her being nice unless you called her "Needy".
  • Flat Character: There isn’t really much to her outside of her dislike for being called "Needy".
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After she slaps Leafy for calling her "Needy", Leafy slaps her back hard enough to launch her into space, popping the yeast bubble mentioned below.
  • Lethal Chef: Added so much yeast to a cake that it grew into a bubble the size of a star and achieved nuclear fusion several weeks later, plunging Earth into a torrent of solar wind.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Very fast on her feet as shown in BFB 11, and can slap hard enough to launch others into the sky. She's also got the toughness to back it up, as at one point she got knocked into space, popped a star-sized yeast bubble and fell straight back to Earth with not a scratch on her, and is able to swim through lava while lifting Leafy into the air and towing Firey.
  • Nice Girl: She’s very soft-spoken when she isn’t slapping others.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In BFB 15, she does NOT show her usual pleasant and kind-hearted personality, as she unintentionally pushes Leafy off the roof while she was meddling with Taco, angrily tells Firey and Leafy to shut up while they were arguing, then pushes Leafy off the roof AGAIN (this time intentional.) Then came TPOT 1, where she angrily yelled “FINALLY!”, when Coiny came up with a plan.

Team: Squishy Cherries (BFDI), Death P.A.C.T (BFB 1-16), Are You Okay? (TPOT 1-)
Voiced by: Michael Huang
A ballpoint pen. He is friends with Blocky and Eraser, but unlike them, he's generally nicer and more optimistic.


  • Affably Evil: When he is the second naughty one in the second Among Us video, he still retains his nice personality, and although he kills Eggy, he does not kill Saw once he is outed.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: Part of a jock trio with Blocky and Eraser.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Addresses and gives thanks to the viewers in the 4th-anniversary video for BFDI.
  • Buffy Speak: Refers to the Announcer occasionally as "Announcer Thing".
  • Cheaters Never Prosper: Despite being one of the kindest characters on the show, he ends up cheating his way through challenges three times in the first season. To elaborate, he and Blocky find the test answers in episode 3, and he buys cake and part of a taco from Leafy in episodes 4 and 15 respectively. The last instance is what led to his elimination.
  • Competition Freak: Out of all the contestants, he seems to be the most focused on winning Dream Island.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Although he can be dim-witted, he's the reason Death P.A.C.T. got 1st place in most of the challenges.
  • Heroic BSoD: Goes through a short one in BFB 1 when his friends end up on separate teams from him.
  • Keet: In stark contrast to Eraser, Pen is very cheerful and positive.
  • Large Ham: After he is revealed to be the second naughty one:
    Pen (in a really deep voice): Yes! It was me all along! I was naughty! HA! HA! HA! HA!.
  • Lovable Jock: He's one of the macho trio, but generally more pleasant to be around than either Blocky and Eraser.
  • Nice Guy: Much friendlier compared to Eraser, Blocky, and Snowball. He smiles a lot more often, is generally more empathetic, doesn’t kill people on purpose, and shows the most concern out of everyone when Flower destroys all of the recovery centers.
  • Nice Hat: His cap functions as this.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The nice to Blocky's mean and Eraser's in-between. He may be a jock like them, but he's friendlier than both of them combined.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The sensitive guy to Eraser/Blocky/Snowball's manly men. Blocky and Snowball are aggressive and find entertainment in beating people up and Eraser is grumpy and doesn’t show much emotion. Pen, on the other hand, is much sweeter and more emotional, serving as the group’s Morality Pet of sorts and being part of a team with pacifist goals in BFB.
  • Terrible Artist: At least in the eyes of Four, X, and the recommended characters, since his drawing of Four led to his team’s loss in BFB 4.
    X: You are a disgrace to the entire art community, and the entire world would rejoice if you never touched a piece of paper again, EVER!
  • Token Good Teammate: Unlike Blocky, Eraser, and Snowball, who are all Jerk Jocks, Pen is a Lovable Jock, and he also doesn't try to kill others for petty reasons unlike the former three, although said teammates have become nicer.

A No. 2 pencil. Match's best friend, Pencil is rather bossy with her teammates and is very stubborn.


  • The Alliance: With Match and Bubble. Ruby gets added in BFDIA, while Book and Ice Cube are “alternates”. When Book and Ice Cube left in BFB, the name was reduced to "iance" as suggested by Snowball and done by Fanny.
  • Alpha Bitch: Has shades of this, being the leader of a mostly faithful Girl Posse, very selfish, and generally rude towards others, even her alliance members. Unlike most examples of this trope, she’s not as blatantly girly.
  • Characterization Marches On: In BFDI, she didn’t really have much to her character outside of her alliance and slight Valley Girl tendencies, but she was pretty cheerful and friendly. From BFDIA onward, she gradually becomes a selfish, uncaring, and somewhat apathetic Jerkass.
  • Cool People Rebel Against Authority: When Golf Ball makes Team No-Name promise to never switch to W.O.A.H Bunch, Pencil refuses and instead decides to start her own team with her alliance as team members.
  • Does Not Like Men: She reacts with disgust when a group of males enter Eternal Algebra Class, which initially consisted of only girls and complains about it to Four shortly after.
    ”EWWWW, IT’S A BUNCH OF BOYS!”
  • Girl Posse: Pencil's alliance consists entirely of girls, and she and Match generally subject the other four members to their whims with little care. In BFDIA, they form their own team in the fifth episode.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Gets the rest of her team to kill her by sawing her in half when a sea monster traps her in its tongue in BFDIA 5e.
  • Hate Sink: Becomes one in BFB 1, ordering Lightning to electrocute whoever she dislikes and demoting Bubble for trying to stop him.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Match.
  • Hypocrite: Consistently accuses Golf Ball of being a “bossy-bot”. Pencil herself isn’t any better.
  • Jerkass: She’s very bossy and quite egotistical. By the time BFB airs, she’s even worse than before, ordering Lightning to electrocute anyone she dislikes and demoting Bubble to a “bember” when she tries to prevent him from zapping Fanny. This led to her elimination in the following episode.
  • Mad Libs Dialogue: Usually in her rejoining auditions:
    (X) yeah yeah yeah, (Y) yeah yeah yeah, so I can win the contest, so I can win the contest!
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: She is the in-between to Bubble’s nice and Match’s mean in Season 2, but is the mean to Bubble's nice and Match's in-between in Season 4.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: She starts off as one of the friendlier contestants, but as the series progresses, she becomes increasingly more selfish and rude. Her Jerkass behavior comes to a head in BFB 1, when she orders Lightning to electrocute people she dislikes and demotes Bubble’s alliance rank for trying to stop him.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Pencil loves chocolate and ice cream cake.
  • Valley Girl: Not as easily noticeable as it is with Match, but she definitely has shades of this trope. She says "OMG" more often than other contestants, and occasionally says "like," but not as frequently as Match.

A red pin, leader of the Squishy Cherries in BFDI. At first, Pin was rather bossy and grumpy, but once BFDIA came around, she became much kinder and more supportive of her teammates.


  • An Arm and a Leg: Loses all four of her limbs in "Get in the Van" as revenge by Puffball for accidentally killing her Speaker Box, and does not regain them when killed and recovered. She gets new limbs made out of her pigment by IDFB 1, though.
  • Color Failure: Golf Ball extracts the pigmentation from Pin's body prior to IDFB in order to make new limbs, and she regains her coloration by BFB.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Pin hates key lime pie.
  • Heroic BSoD: During BFB’s sixth challenge, she worries about the possibility of Loser being eliminated since the team relied on him so much, and frets if they can do things independently if he’s gone. Thankfully, Coiny is there to give her a pep talk.
  • Hidden Depths: Pin is an excellent patisserie and seems to have a fondness for gardening, as she’s instantly able to recognize what Yoyle seeds look like, finds it “cute” when she notices Fries trying to grow potatoes (and tries to befriend him in the process), and carried some blueberry seeds with her in BFB 1.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: In season 1. She was bossy, rude, and a bit manipulative, but she was on genuinely good terms with Leafy.
  • No Social Skills: Doesn't know how to make friends, as well as communicate, as mentioned by herself to Fries.
  • Super Strength: Pin is by far the strongest character next to Loser. As shown in "Zeeky Boogy Doog", she can effortlessly shake the Eiffel Tower as if it's made of paper-mâché.
  • Supreme Chef: Wins the cake-baking contest in "Sweet Tooth" by making a cake replica of Flower, and baked the cake used for "Enter the Exit"'s Cake at Stake which X describes as being made by someone very talented. It's because of this that she's chosen to pipe Four's essence into his usual shape to revive him.
  • Throwing Off the Disability: She eventually gets her limbs back after losing them.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Started off as a mean, selfish Jerk with a Heart of Gold. From BFDIA on, she’s a lot more cheerful and outgoing, even developing a close friendship with Coiny.

A rock. Rocky is a rather unintelligent character who has the ability to barf infinitely but usually chooses to use it on impulse rather than for a purpose.


  • Breath Weapon: Rocky's barf has a lot of uses, making effective projectiles or even being able to propel him into the air. As of BFB, it almost always takes the form of highly caustic stomach acids (or as Balloony calls it, salt and vinegar).
  • Brought Down to Normal: For the duration of BFDIA since the machine inside of his mouth producing all of the vomit was destroyed in the BFDI finale. By the time IDFB rolls around, he's able to barf at will again.
  • Characterization Marches On: Was originally introduced as an oblivious, but cheerful child-like character who actually spoke and did not have his trademark vomit. Has since become a nearly-silent barfing freak.
  • Flat Character: Aside from the Swiss Army barf, there really isn't that much about Rocky.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Despite his mostly pacific attitude, Rocky has abrasive relationships with most contestants due to his abrasive vomit.
  • Grievous Harm with a Body: Rocky has had a tendency to be utilised as a weapon by and against the other contestants.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Eats one of Fries's fries after he gets poisoned in "Insectophobe's Nightmare 3" (killing himself instantly), and swallows Nickel on Balloony's orders in "Don't Dig Straight Down". The latter incident is notable for being his first intentional kill.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Almost always wears a huge smile on his face.
  • Prone to Vomiting: "Bulleh!"
  • Too Dumb to Live: He's one of the more stupid contestants, and his constant barfing has hindered him as much as it's helped him. "Gardening Hero" has him abducted by a UFO that promptly explodes and kills him when he spews inside of it, and his first thought upon seeing Fries poisoned in "Insectophobe's Nightmare 3" is to devour part of his toxic corpse and succumb to it seconds later.
  • Vocal Dissonance: In the very few occasions that he does speak, he uses a voice much higher than even most of the girls or even Lightning and Woody.
  • The Voiceless: He has had very few speaking roles in the series, with most of them being in the 1st episode and one being in the 19th episode. The only sound he makes other than his signature "Bulleh!" is a high-pitched squeak. Double-subverted. Vocally reacting to Balloony's death in BFB 12 is what gives him away as BEEP's imposter.
  • Vomit Indiscretion Shot: Whenever Rocky's around, expect this to happen at least Once an Episode (outside of BFDIA, that is).

A snowball. Snowball is a generally unpleasant individual obsessed with power and doesn't get along with the other contestants for his short temper and tendency to be a liability in challenges.


  • Ax-Crazy: If you’re unlucky enough to piss him off, expect him to resort to physical violence or outright murder.
  • Berserk Button: When Golf Ball claims he has a tiny brain, he gets pissed.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: The brooding boy to Basketball's gentle girl.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Has no clue why Fanny would be pissed off at him during Cake At Stake in BFB 12 even though he nearly completely decapitated her in the previous episode because she told him to just let Flower do the challenge to not invoke her wrath.
  • Dumb Muscle: One of the physically strongest characters, but he can’t even remember his own name.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Despite his aggressive and rude demeanor, he refuses to beat up Bubble when Flower asks him to. He's got no problem popping her whenever he feels like it, though.
  • Fantastic Racism: Shows consistent prejudice against armless objects, thinking they are weaker than those with arms. Fanny seems to be an exception since he praises her for her abrasive personality.
  • Flanderization: In the earlier episodes, while he always wanted self-praise, at least he was noticeably calmer, and would only hurt someone if they push his buttons. In the later episodes, he's a straight-up Jerkass.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: A majority of the contestants can’t stand him because of his Jerkass attitude and behavior. It’s to the point where he’s chosen dead last for a team and joined The Strongest Team on Earth by default in TPOT 1, much to Basketball's annoyance.
  • Grievous Harm with a Body: Threw Rocky at Golf Ball in one instance.
  • Hidden Depths: It could be non-canon, but he admits that "Let it Go" and ''Frozen'' are important to him.
  • Jerkass: Good lord, is he ever! He’s immensely prejudiced against armless objects and girls, and tends to physically harm others whenever pissed off.
  • Jerk Jock: Along with Blocky and Eraser. While they at least have some shreds of decency, Snowball is just a thorough jerkass.
  • The Load: It's easier to count the number of times Snowball has contributed to challenge than the times he's hindered his teams.
  • Men Don't Cry: Refuses to participate in the crying contest because he believes this.
  • Narcissist: Even more than Flower. Thinks he's more important than the other contestants.
  • No Indoor Voice: He yells a whole lot of his dialogue, especially when he’s angry.
  • Pink Is for Sissies: Snowball strongly believes this, unlike Eraser, who thinks pink is manly.
  • Static Character: He's known for being aggressive and angry, and never changes at all, at least, until...
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Starting in BFB 13, he's become friendlier than usual, having normal conversations with his team and even helping save Bubble's life.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He tried to hit Golf Ball two times, once slammed Fanny onto the ground and broke her, and has killed Bubble multiple times.

Voiced by: Cary Huang
A dishwashing sponge. Spongy is large, powerful and friendly, but slow, somewhat dumb, and frequently bullied by everybody else for his size and personality.


  • Beware the Nice Ones: He is normally pretty friendly, but he leaves his team to die after they wanted to use his spaceship.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Your teammates and friends upset you because they couldn't recognize that you were the imposter in a challenge and seemongly know nothing about you? Just pay them back by leaving them to die in a lava flood you accidentally caused, even after one of them sacrifices himself to get you to safety!
  • The Dog Bites Back: After two seasons of being abused, he finally snaps and leaves the living members of his team behind.
  • Dumb Muscle: Spongy's far from being smart, but his size means he has the brawn to make up for it.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Almost everybody else hates Spongy because of his size and bad hygiene, even though he's almost always nothing but kind.
  • Gentle Giant: By far the largest contestant in the show, and one of the kindest.
  • Hidden Depths: Spongy wants to do a lot more than his overly large size lets him do and is a bit of a thrill-seeker despite his soft demeanor, including skydiving, playing table tennis and ping-pong, tightrope walking, flying hot air balloons, flying planes, and...sailing airplanes?
  • Iron Butt Monkey: Another one of the characters prone to getting bullied both verbally and physically from the others, Spongy is on the receiving end of quite a bit of slapstick throughout most of his time on the show. However, there's not much that can actually kill him unlike the series' other Butt Monkeys, with his only known weaknesses being lava and Spikes of Doom.
  • Karma Houdini: He caused the whole lava outbreak in BFB 14 and then refused to save his teammates for petty reasons, yet he's one of the survivors by the end of the episode. He's eliminated when his team loses the next challenge, but can't be absorbed by Four and ends up remaining in BFB when Two's arrival splits the remaining contestants into two competitions. However, he's voted out as soon as his new team is up for elimination two episodes later.
  • Mighty Glacier: Abundant in strength (he is said to be good at throwing in episode 5 of BFDIA, and even helps carry a bag of money the others can't carry in the same episode), but his vast weight makes it hard for him to maneuver or perform tasks the other contestants could easily perform. He's only fast enough to back several trips to the bread basket and back in BFDI 14, but he manages to carry so many loaves at a time that he's able to win the challenge and rejoin. He is only beaten in the slowness department by Rocky.
  • Nice Guy: Spongy usually likes everyone, even the contestants who frequently get ostracised by others for petty reasons.
  • Prone to Tears: It doesn't take much to upset him.
  • Supreme Chef: Is shown to be a downplayed version of this in the episode "Vomitaco", where he makes a taco that the majority of the eliminated contestants like despite it having been made with his feet.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In BFB 14, he prioritizes himself over his teammates when lava starts to flood the earth by refusing to let them in his private jet in addition to wanting to get back at them for their actions in BFB 12. In the next episode, he shoots cannonballs at Puffball just because they were on sale and he wanted his money’s worth.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Donut throws him out of the way of a rising pool of lava at the cost of his life, but he then refuses to let the rest of his team ride a spaceship that they could easily fit in if he got out of it because he's mad about them failing to spot that Tree was posing as him in a challenge. Bomby is forced to sacrifice himself to get the others back to safety on the surface with the force of his explosion as a result.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: He might have abandoned his team, but considering the fact that he was used by WOAH Bunch to escape Evil Canyon, was impaled on spikes, and burned alive along with Needle, it is no wonder that he snapped. WOAH Bunch did not even apologize to him for it.
  • Your Size May Vary: In several instances, Spongy is large enough to serve as a platform for others, while in others, he's only somewhat larger than the next largest contestant, Tennis Ball.
    • Justified because sponges are able to expand in water and shrink when dried, albeit it is a bit exaggerated.

A teardrop. Teardrop is infamous amongst the other contestants for being very mysterious as a result of being mute and consequently easy to manipulate.


  • The Alliance: Currently in an alliance with Gelatin and Lollipop.
  • Hidden Depths: Teardrop is hinted to be fairly intelligent, as she managed to pass the test in Episode 3, with 15 points.
  • Only Sane Man: It maybe because she's mute, but she's one of the few members of Bleh to not ostracise Taco for her alleged abandonment.
  • Out of Focus: Her early eliminations in both BFDI and BFDIA in combination with her inability to speak haven't given her much of a chance to show much characterization. She's survived BFB for nearly the time she played in both prior seasons combined, but the sheer number of characters initially didn't help until the split. She gets a lot more focus from there on out.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Sent Woody flying into the air with just a kick in the first episode.
  • The Quiet One: Teardrop is apparently unable to talk, a trait the other contestants love to abuse.

A tennis ball. He is best friends with Golf Ball, but unlike her, he's generally nice (unless one calls him clumsy) and is rather humble about his intelligence.


  • Be Careful What You Wish For: In BFDIA 5a Tennis Ball laments that Rocky didn't win the elimination prize because he wanted him to gain his barfing powers back, much to the disgust of his teammates. He's gotten them back anyway by IDFB, and TB absolutely hates how much he's barfing.
  • Berserk Button: Do not call him clumsy.
  • Birds of a Feather: Is often seen together with Golf Ball. Both are nerdy and both are sports balls.
  • The Chew Toy: He's the Announcer's favorite victim.
  • Endearingly Dorky: Clumsy, smart, generally friendly, and passionate about inventions if IDFB 1 is anything to go by.
  • Faux Affably Evil: When he is the imposter in the Among Us video, he still has his normal friendly personality.
  • Gentle Giant: One of the largest characters with a nice and friendly attitude.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: The huge guy to Golf Ball's tiny girl.
  • The Klutz: His large size and lack of arms make him quite clumsy, something the Announcer loves to tease him over. When he and Leafy are tied to be eliminated and must jump over a cliff to survive, it's him who messes up and bounces off.
  • Morality Pet: To Golf Ball, although she’s not evil, she’s just very bossy. He’s one of the only contestants she’s consistently friendly with.
  • Only Sane Man: On several occasions, Tennis Ball has shown to be much more rational than the other contestants. Best expressed in BFDI 14 when the Announcer throws his marble collection (worth 15 bonus points) into a pool of hydrochloric acid, as rather than mindlessly jumping in like the other contestants, Tennis Ball uses his magnet to retrieve the marbles, something the other contestants wouldn't have thought of.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The calm and rational blue to Golf Ball's easily angered and loud red.
  • Slasher Smile: Has one when he is revealed to be one of the imposters in the Among Us video.

A slab of balsa wood. Woody is extremely timid and prone to panicking, and it's easier to count the things that don't terrify him than it is to list the things that do.


  • Abhorrent Admirer: He is this to Teardrop in Episode 1, albeit briefly, because a single kick from her sends him flying.
  • Absurd Phobia: He is afraid of everything—he even dies temporarily after seeing the color grey.
  • Butt-Monkey: In season 1, where he would get made fun of for his phobias by others.
  • Character Development: Goes from being afraid of everything, to helping Flower cope with her own fear.
  • Comical Overreacting: Something as small as sticking a fork in his face tends to garner the same reaction from Woody as if he saw someone gets brutally maimed in front of him.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Burns into ashes in BFB 19, and what makes this scarier is that he hasn’t died in a long time.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Quickly established as one of the least popular contestants in the first episode, and in the second, when it's time to choose teams, he gets Picked Last.
  • Hard Head: In the first episode, a piece of his head gets chipped off after hitting Rocky, and it stays that way for the rest of the series, but doesn't seem to hurt him or even bother him.
  • Lovable Coward: Averted in BFDI, as almost no one likes him due to his pantophobia. Played straight in BFB, however, due to having his pantophobia toned down significantly and becoming more cheerful and useful in challenges.
  • Minor Injury Overreaction: When he gets chipped in the first episode, he screams loud enough that Eraser and Pen can hear it from some distance away.
  • Nervous Wreck: Pretty much everything causes him to have a major freakout.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: In BFB 21, his teammates give him a cardboard box to hide when he's scared. The gesture makes him very furious, and he crushes the insulting gift. When Blocky berates him for it, he angrily babbles back at him.
  • Scars Are Forever: He's retained the chip on the top of his head he received in the first episode for the entire series, regardless of dying and being recovered, and spent half of BFB's current runtime being dyed orange by Four and dented by Bell.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl
  • Shrinking Violet: Quite the shy type.
  • Took a Level in Badass: He's gradually growing braver through BFB, culminating in surviving the lava storm in "Don't Dig Straight Down" with little fear and going on to save his team from elimination when he's left the only living member. By BFB 29, he's regularly speaking coherent English after going almost 4 whole seasons.
  • Took a Level in Cheerfulness: As of BFB, he’s less of a wimp than in BFDI and smiles a lot more often. It’s adorable.
  • The Unintelligible: Until post-split BFB, he only ever spoke two coherent sentences, in BFB 2 and BFB 14. By BFB 28, he overcomes the speech difficulties altogether, to the point where he even gives Flower coping mechanism advice.
    Roboty! (panting) Tell me where you aaaare!!! Can you hear me? We need you!!!!
    Roboty?

A stick figure. He is pretty much only capable of saying "Aw, seriously?" and "NO!"


  • A Day in the Limelight: The "Aw, Seriously?" short marks his first major role in any BFDI video, where Pencil hires him to be her assistant.
  • Catchphrase: "Aw, seriously?". Taken Up to Eleven because it's just about the only thing he says!
  • Finishing Each Other's Sentences: He does this for Pencil in "Aw, Seriously?"
  • Gonk: David's heavily misshaped and imperfectly round head and incredibly tall and slanted eyes, along with the boiling outlines that aren't really stiff are tuned up to Stylistic Suck levels.
  • Hate Sink: David's ugly design and annoying voice show he was clearly made to be a despised character. Even the contestants think he's ugly in-universe.
  • Informed Deformity: David is regarded by his fellow contestants as being incredibly ugly or frightening. His simple stick figure design does not show anything unpleasant about his appearance.
  • Jerkass: Generally unhelpful and annoying to everyone for little reason.
  • Line Boil: Done occasionally while he speaks.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Not an inanimate object and animated slightly differently from the other characters.
  • Our Humans Are Different: The other contestants claim that David is a human or a man multiple times. His stick figure appearance does not show it.
  • Plot Allergy: He's allergic to sunrises.
  • Sixth Ranger: Was BFDI's first mid-season addition as a recommended character.
  • Stylistic Suck: David is crudely drawn even more than Four and X in the earlier episodes and Yellow Face.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: David has been shown multiple times to have even fewer friends than Spongy. Even if his appearance doesn't appear off-putting to someone, chances are that his personality will alienate them instead.
  • The Load: Usually refuses to help the rest of BEEP, and instead just stands around. Subverted in BFB 2, when he only started licking jawbreakers after the rest of his team gave up, and in BFB 5, where he piloted his team's plane.
  • Uncanny Valley: David is generally regarded in-universe to be somewhat creepy. He's one of the few contestants to not be an object, Gelatin considers him to be weird and Cloudy almost pukes when he learns David is a man.
  • Vacuum Mouth: The way he eats the sandwich Pencil gave him in "Aw, Seriously?"
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Was only in the first season for 3 episodes, and didn't come back until BFB.
