Screw you, moon! You can't control me!
 
— Bell, "Four Goes Too Far"

Bell is a female contestant in Battle for BFDI and The Power of Two and was one of the 30 recommended characters who had a chance at joining the game during "The Reveal" and "Reveal Novum", failing to get into the game with only four votes, along with Cloudy.

Bell's BFDI debut and BFDIA design is made of a brown metal, with a blue ribbon around the middle, and has a string attaching her to the top of the screen. It is unknown where the string leads to, or where it hangs from. Bell may also have the ability to detach and regain her string, as seen in multiple episodes.

Bell also failed to join BFDIA in "Yeah, Who? I Wanna Know", because she received only 90 votes.

Bell's IDFB redesign features a shiny metal and a hinge. Bell's ribbon is also removed. (Oddly, in the storyboards, she is still drawn with her ribbon.)

Bell had a chance to join IDFB through viewers voting, along with the other TLC prisoners. She got 41 votes.[1]

Bell competed in BFB on the team Free Food. In TPOT, she's competing on the team The Strongest Team on Earth..

Personality

Bell seems to be a bit melodramatic and forgetful, as she doesn't recognize that Puffball can fly. Her voice is generally peppy and can be quite whiny whenever someone climbs her string and will ding rapidly in discomfort. However, for the most part, Bell is perky and sweet.

She also has trust issues and is sometimes unforgiving to others for things that happened in the past, as shown with Taco.

She also shown to be rude in "The Liar Ball You Don't Want" and "You Know Those Buttons Don't Do Anything, Right?".

Official Character Guide biography

Ding, dong! Bell is a metal bell made of bell metal. She has a string to swing on, even though no one knows what it's attached to. She doesn't like when others pull it or climb on it, but believe us, many have tried. Apparently, this string can conduct electricity, because 12 characters have been zapped by Bell's string at once.

Bell is close friends with Taco, Yellow Face, and Gelatin.

Did You Know?: Bell can ring at whatever note she desires.

Battle for BFDI

Bell in Battle for BFDI

In "Getting Teardrop to Talk", her first talking appearance, Bell launches Gelatin's forks and topples his creation, which makes Yellow Face happy. The forks she launched pop Bubble twice. After Four arrives, and kills Pin and Pillow, Bell is sad that they might not ever get them back. Four then shows that he can recover them through his hand. She is later persuaded by Yellow Face to join his team. After Foldy dies, Bell lost all hope because there was no one at the time who could reach the basket, but doesn't know that Puffball can fly. Marker asks her to turn around and she gets scared by Puffball, dinging rapidly. Her team is safe when Puffball pushes the basket to X.

In "Lick Your Way to Freedom", she only appears, arguing about the recovery of the objects who died in the previous episode. Her team is safe, finding Lollipop.

In "Why Would You Do This on a Swingset", she appears when she gets on her team's swing. Her only line is telling Fries that he doesn't need to be so pushy to Puffball.

In "Today's Very Special Episode", Eraser asks Bell what her string is attached to. Bell laughs and says she'd prefer not to tell. Eraser insists that he wants to find out and that he will find out, and starts climbing her string. Bell starts making noise trying to get someone to help her. Liy hears her, asking what's the ruckus. Bell tells her that Eraser is climbing her string, which just intrigues Liy to do the same as she never noticed her string before. Bell continues making noises for help and is approached by Snowball who volunteers to help punch off the people climbing her string. Bell is grateful at first until Snowball says he has to climb her string in order to do so, to her frustration. Shortly after Four introduces Team Ice Cube! to Cake at Stake, a vast amount of climbers are shown to have climbed Bell's string, but Donut does not want to climb her string, citing that it would be "disrespectful" to her. She thanks Donut shortly afterward.

After Bracelety is eaten by Four, Bell asks Lightning to zap her, for the zap would travel up her string and zap all of the climbers down. This was successful, as all of the climbers fall from the string.

She appears later, dinging to make Four excrete Beep's cake. Free Food's creation, "The Year's Hottest Look", won the first place. Bell's string is later used by Bottle so that she could catch Death P.A.C.T.'s drawing.

In "Fortunate Ben", Bell gets trapped inside his team's paper plane by Stapy which causes them to fall out of the sky. His team manages to win thanks to Stapy using his staples to break the landscape.

Bell gives the Twinkle to Clock.

In "Four Goes Too Far", she is first seen in the heart scene, getting the Twinkle once. She is later seen with her teammates, avoiding a twinkle-infected Pen, but he passes it onto Marker.

She is later seen with Taco. When Taco says, "Hey Bell! Isn't the moon beautiful tonight?", Bell accidentally mistakes Taco flirting with her and stutters bashfully. Taco then tells her to actually look at the moon and when she does, Bell gets the Twinkle. With 30 seconds left, Bell apologizes to Free Food for failing them, but Eraser tells Bell her string is long, hence it makes her strong. He tells her that The Losers! are the only team on earth left who don't know she has the twinkle. Encouraged, Bell breaks through the Losers' basket and infects Clock, making his team lose at the last second.

In "The Liar Ball You Don't Want", she is seen with Taco again, and tells Donut off, saying he wants to "take everything they love, and destroy it". She is shocked after Taco is squished with the Liar Ball. In the challenge, Bell dents Woody with one of her sharp edges and assists Free Food in getting the liar ball, but Naily stabs her in the face and takes the ball for her team.

In "This Episode Is About Basketball", Stapy asks Puffball to make sure Bell and Foldy get their cakes since they were both dead during Free Food's first Cake at Stake.

In "Enter the Exit", Bell is recovered and meets up with her teammates. At the ending, Taco tries to talk to her, but Bell snaps and thinks it's a trick, like Taco did in "Four Goes Too Far". Bell ignores the fact that Taco wants to have a normal conversation with her and her apology, saying that sorry won't cut it and that she doesn't trust Taco anymore. This all happens whilst Lollipop watches them.

In "What Do You Think of Roleplay?", Bell only appears when Yellow Face figures out that Puffball is the impostor on their team.

In "Return of the Rocket Ship", after Yellow Face advertised the Fork Attractant, Bell, along with Marker and Lollipop, was intrigued by the ad, and she stated that she wished to be blessed with its exquisite viewing experience. Fries keeps interrupting however, annoying Bell. Bell asks Fries why he's acting with such urgency, and Fries answers that it's because Four and X are about to announce the next contest. Both hosts are just standing blankly, so Bell isn't sure if Fries is right until Eraser backs him up. They insist that at any moment, X will float into the air. They all wait for X to do anything, with Bell starting to lose her patience at one point, when X suddenly bursts through the ground instead.

Later on during the challenge, when Golf Ball demonstrated the MMR on her, Bell's thought was that she was glad that the top of her string was connected to something giant, though Blocky quickly interrupted the whole thought. In exchange, however, Bell read Golf Ball's thought of sending people to her incinerator.

In "Don't Dig Straight Down", Bell cheers with the other members of Free Food when Four declares their team safe.

In "The Four is Lava", Bell is one of the few Free Food members who weren't killed by the lava. She is first seen with Foldy standing on her while she floats above the lava. They almost get burnt by a splash of lava from Spongy's cannonballs. Puffball uses Bell's string to catch one of Spongy's cannonballs in order to fling it back at him and destroy a portion of his ship, rendering it unable to fly. Afterwards, Puffball says they should go to Four and Bell agrees. Bell later makes it to Four with Foldy and Puffball, making their team safe. Bell then asks Four to recover her dead teammates, and he does so, recovering them all on her string.

In "The Escape from Four", Bell is first seen moving towards Four to watch him struggle to suck up Spongy. As everyone moves in closer, Bell questions what was going as they heard a weird noise coming from Spongy's holes. It's revealed to be the eliminated contestants, who Bell attempts to free by pulling on Spongy's leg with everyone else. Later, Bell quits BFB to compete in TPOT.

In "SOS (Save Our Show)", Bell appears in a scenario where Two didn't appear and BFB didn't split. However, she quits BFB in agreement with Fries because of Four being bad at hosting.

BFDI: The Power of Two

Bell in Battle for Dream Island: The Power of Two

In "You Know Those Buttons Don't Do Anything, Right?", she teams up with Foldy, but rejects Marker, throwing him away. The two become members of The Strongest Team on Earth. During the challenge, she lifts herself, Robot Flower and Grassy to the top of the building. When she tries to go back down however, Two won't let her since it's against the rules. Her team just barely wins the challenge, and she is angry at Two for being the reason their teams did so bad. Two thinks they should stop blaming them, and Bell angrily retorts that they should learn to speak up. She then gets in on beating up Two with the other contestants.

Trivia

Comparisons

General

  • It is currently unknown as to where Bell's string leads to, however as revealed in BFB 13, it is known that it is big (at least, it was described as "giant"), and Bell is glad that her string is attached to it.
  • If one were to look in the source files of "Today's Very Special Episode" to see the top of Bell's string, it will lead to a wall of text saying "NICE TRY".

An instance of Bell appearing without her string

  • Bell is one of the only people so far to request Lightning to zap her.
    • Snowball also has requested to be zapped, but Lightning ignored him.
  • If one counts Bell's string, Bell is the tallest contestant.
  • Bell is seen multiple times without her string, it is possible that she can detach it whenever she wishes to do so.
  • In "No More Snow!", she can be seen in the forest with 8-Ball and Grassy.
  • Bell is the first character to kill someone else in BFB.
  • Throughout the series, the location of Bell's string is constantly changing. They are:
  • All of the Team Ice Cube! members have climbed her string except for Donut.
  • Bell's string is not seen from space when A Better Name Than That and Bleh.svg are on the moon, so it is likely that her string only extends to somewhere in the sky.
