Hm. If we want to win, then our team must have a better name than that!
 

A Better Name Than That (or ABNTT for short, and frequently misspoken as Another Name Than That by Four) is one of the eight teams in Battle for BFDI. The name was created when Golf Ball said in response to Death P.A.C.T. naming their team that her team must have "a better name than that" if they wanted to win. Thus, A Better Name Than That was created.

Official Character Guide description

When everyone was making teams, Golf Ball witnessed Death P.A.C.T. devise their name and said to her own team, "Hmm. If we want to win, then our team must have a better name than that!" And the name stuck! "A Better Name Than That," or ABNTT, was born.

The team often struggles because its members care too much about who is leading them. Golf Ball, for one, thinks she should be the leader, but 8-Ball undermines her all the time, making it unclear who everyone should listen to. Although 8-Ball turns out to be a really bad leader, the others listen to him because Golf Ball is too bossy.

Coverage

A Better Name Than That

In "Getting Teardrop to Talk", the team started with Basketball asking 8-Ball to form a team together since they are both balls. 8-Ball suggests to add Golf Ball, Tennis Ball, and Snowball because they are balls too. Snowball rudely declines the offer. Grassy then tells Basketball that no one has picked him yet, so Basketball chooses him on the team. Golf Ball states that the team needs at least 2 mechanical minds. Robot Flower and TV then get picked. Blocky joins by overhearing Grassy stating that "with a team like this, we're sure to get up to loads of funny doings". This then fills the team.

When it was time to choose names for your teams, Basketball looks at Death P.A.C.T. saying that they're naming their team. Golf Ball states if she wants her team to win, then her team must have a better name than that. The name is finalized.

In the challenge, Golf Ball tells Robot Flower and Blocky to climb up the tree to catch a basket because they have arms. Golf Ball says that TV will relay coordinates of baskets' locations, and 8-Ball and Basketball will weigh the baskets down once someone has gotten a hold of them. Grassy does nothing. Blocky asks what Golf Ball will do, with her responding that she is managing the team. Tennis Ball follows. This gets Blocky mad at Tennis Ball, and kills him.
