Blocky, formerly known as Building Block in the comics, is a male object contestant on Battle for Dream Island and Battle for BFDI

In Battle for Dream Island, Blocky originally competed on team Squishy Cherries until he was eliminated in "Sweet Tooth" with 6 votes. Blocky then rejoined the game in "Insectophobe's Nightmare" with 8 votes, joining team Squashy Grapes. Blocky was again eliminated in "The Reveal" with 112 votes.

Blocky had a chance at joining Battle for Dream Island Again, but only got 239 votes.

Blocky had a chance to rejoin in IDFB, but he received 523 votes, which is not enough to join.[1]

Blocky is currently competing on A Better Name Than That in Battle for BFDI.


Blocky appears to be a hardwood toy building block. His top is a bright red, his front is coral, and his shade is maroon.


Early BFDI

  • Blocky has darker outlines.


  • Blocky's outlines are now thicker.


  • Blocky has thinner outlines.
  • Blocky's outlines are darker.


  • Blocky has now lighter outlines.


In Battle for Dream Island, Blocky is shown to be a reckless prankster, bully, sadist, and a murderer. He constantly picks on and kills various people whenever given the chance, like kicking Woody, throwing Ice Cube off a ledge, and extinguishing Firey repeatedly. These attacks are often seen as pranks on his end, but they usually are at the expense of other people's well-being. Blocky hardly shows remorse for his actions, and is rarely social to people outside of his friend group.

In Battle for BFDI, Blocky's personality changes. He's a lot less violent towards others, killing people less often. He can still be pushed, like when Golf Ball tries to manage him, causing Blocky to break her in half. He's also more social and empathetic, standing up for Grassy when Golf Ball mistreated him, or worrying when Four was gonna come back. Blocky still wishes he could return to pranks, but he acknowledges the improbability of the prospect and shows restraint.



Battle for Dream Island

In "Take the Plunge: Part 1", Blocky tries to pop Bubble using Pin and Needle but fails. He then kicks Woody away. In the contest, Blocky holds on to the bar with his arms and puts his legs up to his face. Coiny shakes him, trying to wake him up, but Blocky accidentally pushes Coiny off. Leafy asks Blocky to help her up when she falls off the bar and has to hold on to it, but Blocky falls too and holds on with his feet. He kicks Flower when she shows off her Non-Slip Shoes So Ha. When Leafy, Pin, and Teardrop finally get back onto the bar, Leafy is standing on Blocky's feet and he falls. 

In "Take the Plunge: Part 2", Blocky pops Bubble for Flower. Eraser and Pen pick Blocky for the Squishy Cherries after Pin said that he has issues. When his team's boat starts leaking in the contest, Blocky tries to plug the hole with one of his corners, but a fish bites him and he flies away, behind a fish monster (though it looked like the fish monster ate him). 

In "Barriers and Pitfalls", Eraser, Pen, Pencil, and Spongy look for Blocky. They think the fish monster ate him, but he reveals that it did not. Blocky falls into the failers' waiting room immediately after starting the contest. A prank by Blocky is shown. 

In "Are You Smarter Than a Snowball?", Blocky is safe from elimination with 2 votes. Blocky then decides to use Ice Cube to destroy the fire that Match started, but it doesn't work. He copies the test answers along with Pen, and high-fives Eraser, slapping him away into a hole. Blocky got all 20 points, but he along with Pen was discovered to be cheating, so their scores were set to 0. 

In "Sweet Tooth", Blocky is eliminated. Pen says he only killed two people, which is true even though he killed them many times.

In "Cycle of Life", a prank by Blocky is shown. He is one of the contestants that can be voted to rejoin, and says that he has an edge, or "twelve edges, to be exact".

In "Insectophobe's Nightmare", Blocky rejoins, joining the Squashy Grapes. The Announcer called him "stabable" [sic]. Snowball picks Blocky for Leafy's team, which keeps the Squashy Grapes name when the Squashy Grapes split. Because of Snowball tying all the contestants into a ball and being unable to pull them, Blocky's team loses.

In "Crybaby!", Blocky was safe from elimination. He melts Ice Cube to get more water in the crying contest. Leafy is angry because of that, but Blocky just says the Ice Cube Recovery Center will recover her. Blocky's team is the middle team.

In "Lofty", Blocky does well in the contest, popping the balloons of Firey, Coiny, Snowball, and Rocky. His team wins. However, he was stuck in the sky along with Leafy for the rest of the episode.

In "A Leg Up in the Race", Blocky insults Coiny's speech for the Squashy Grapes to vote for him to stay. He gets third place in the contest.

In "Don't Lose Your Marbles", Blocky pops Bubble and takes her ball, getting him 8 points. 

In "Half a Loaf Is Better Than None", Pen calls for Blocky to help him up after he falls into a pit. Blocky then calls for Firey, but he and many other contestants end up falling down the pit. Blocky jumps over all the hurdles until the one with saw blades, which he gives up on. He gets 25 points. 

In "Vomitaco", Blocky guesses that the Announcer is going to show them a dead body, but he is wrong. He chooses the barf bag contest and throws a bowling ball, making the bag leak. Pencil throws barf at him to make him fall off. He gets 37 points. 

In "Bowling, Now with Explosions!", Blocky appears in the puppet segment. He sees Pen and Pencil with a pen and pencil stabbed through them and Leafy becoming evil holding a leaf and takes the pen, pencil, and leaf. However, the pen and pencil stab Blocky and the leaf makes him evil. In the contest, Blocky knocks down 7 pins. Leafy subtracts 10 points from him and Pencil subtracts 25. Blocky drains away all of Bubble's points and takes 56 points from both Leafy and Pencil for subtracting his score. Firey takes 40 points from Blocky because he was mean to Bubble. Blocky, and everyone except Firey is up for elimination.

In "The Reveal", Blocky is eliminated, but says he can't be because he is the "star of the show". He shows a funny doing after he is eliminated, though.

In "The Glistening", Blocky fails to rejoin, but he hurts a contestant one last time by kicking Woody.

In "Insectophobe's Nightmare 2", Blocky advertises his last prank of the season, and possibly ever.

In "Return of the Hang Glider", Blocky is happy when Flower dies, and hates Leafy along with everyone else at the end.

Battle for Dream Island Again

With only 239 votes for him to join the show, Blocky fails to join BFDIA. He is, however, seen briefly in the beginning in "Yeah, Who? I Wanna Know", chasing Leafy along with the other contestants. He is later seen with the characters that failed to join BFDIA, being flung to the Locker of Losers with them.

Battle for BFDI

In "Getting Teardrop to Talk", Blocky uses Saw to cut the pentagon into a triangle and a quadrilateral. Later in the episode, Pen says that him and Eraser need to stick together. However, Grassy says that their team can have a lot of funny doings, and Blocky joins A Better Name Than That.

When Golf Ball says the plan, he orders Blocky and Robot Flower to climb the tree. He then asks what Golf Ball and Tennis Ball will be doing, and they both say they're team managers. Blocky then gets mad as he doesn't want to be managed and kills Tennis Ball. When Blocky gets to the top, Robot Flower says that she got there first and pushes Blocky off. Golf Ball says that Robot Flower has betrayed us and Basketball offers to save Blocky. However Basketball is too bouncy, so Grassy takes over and saves Blocky. Golf Ball says that Grassy is actually useful for once. Then, Golf Ball explains to Blocky that Tennis Ball built a trebuchet before he died that they can use to launch Basketball and 8-Ball to the basket. This makes Blocky outraged again this time killing Golf Ball.

In "Lick Your Way to Freedom", Grassy tells Blocky and Basketball that he needs respect. They go and tell Golf Ball about this, but 8-Ball reminds him that he killed her last episode along with Tennis Ball. Blocky and 8-Ball go and tell Four to Recover them but Four announces that it is time for Cake at Stake. After Cake at Stake, Blocky and the others argue to Four about the dead contestants. After Tennis Ball is recovered, they argue some more and then Four announces the challenge. Later, after A Better Name Than That was safe and Golf Ball was freed, Blocky says that GB has not treated Grassy with respect and that the team decided that the new leader is 8-Ball.

Blocky has no lines in "Why Would You Do This on a Swingset" but he is shown in the same pose from "Take the Plunge: Part 1" on the swing. In the challenge, he, along with the rest of the team ignore Golf Ball's commands and instead listen to 8-Ball's.

In "Today's Very Special Episode", Blocky and everyone else on his team besides Golf Ball still listens to 8-Ball's orders. 8-Ball says to waste time so the whole team just relaxes. As the challenge time comes to an end, Golf Ball tries to draw on something on paper to hand in to Four, which all the other members of A Better Name Than That protest to as it was disobeying 8-Ball's command. Blocky tries to pull Golf Ball away from the paper before the time runs out and Four takes the paper. After nearly losing, 8-Ball realizes he what he was doing was wrong and was just saying the opposite of what Golf Ball said to be funny. Golf Ball tries telling the others that 8-Ball was fine with her being the leader, but most of the team still ignore her, Blocky saying that she "disrespects people."

Blocky has no lines in "Fortunate Ben", but he can be seen during Cake at Stake. There, you can hear Bubble popped, and it is later seen near the elimination area that Pin is angry at Blocky. The next time the end of elimination area is seen, Blocky can be seen knocked over. This could imply Blocky killed Bubble, and Pin knocked him over because of that.

In "Four Goes Too Far", A Better Name Than That decide to get rid of Four by multiplying him (using X) by zero (which they use Donut as). Before executing it, Blocky checks to see if everything is in position. After launching their plan and getting Four, X and Donut to collide with each other, Blocky realizes that Four is gone.

Due to the events of "Four Goes Too Far", Blocky, his team, and Bleh are stuck on the Moon in "The Liar Ball You Don't Want". They look through a telescope to see what's happening on Earth, and at one point a piece of paper gets stuck on the telescope. It ends up being the rules to the seventh challenge. Blocky reads out some of it, but is quickly interrupted by Donut telling the contestants on Earth the rules from where Blocky was cut off. The two teams witness the challenge, and Lollipop says she's thankful she isn't down there due to how everyone was acting. Blocky then reminds her that they needed to be there, since no one is there to protect their goal and that one of the two teams will lose, and then tells her Four's going to come back flying at them at a million miles per hour.

When A Better Name Than That use Robot Flower to connect to the communicator dish of the rocket to control Remote, but start having technical difficulties, Blocky notices this and tells 8-Ball to check the ship and Golf Ball to check the dish. Golf Ball gets annoyed that he's giving her orders but she quickly realizes this isn't the time to argue and goes to check, much to Blocky's relief. However, due to Robot Flower closing the signal since Remote was planting a bomb there (which would kill both teams on the moon if the connection was still used), the team isn't able to regain control of Remote, and she places the Liar Ball in A Better Name Than That's goal, causing them to be up for elimination.

Blocky does very little in "Questions Answered". Once he, his team, and Bleh return to Earth (through Donut sending it through the camera he was using to communicate through TV for Cake At Stake), Cake At Stake properly begins, where all of the team are far away from Donut. He tells them they don't have to sit so far away, which is followed by all of the team going inside his hole. Blocky asks whether they were going to do Cake At Stake like this or not, to which Basketball replies yes to. He is the second one safe.

Through slight manipulation of the rules, Blocky helps the team win in "This Episode Is About Basketball" by throwing Basketball and Tennis Ball into A Better Name Than That's basket.

In "Enter the Exit", Blocky stacks up Needle, Pen and Match in the shape of Four in an attempt to revive him.

In "Get to the Top in 500 Steps", Blocky gasps when seeing Flower uses the Non-Slip Shoes, along with Ruby and Yellow Face.

In the beginning of "What Do You Think of Roleplay?", Blocky is seen seated at a picnic table with Pen and Eraser, listening to Pen tell a story, laughing along with Eraser. Afterwards, he tells the two he has been thinking of doing more pranks, however the Recovery Centers, his "inspiration", are all gone. Eraser tells him if he ever needs a hand with one of his pranks, he's down to help. On the other hand, Pen tells him he'd love to, but can't go against the core values of Death P.A.C.T., preventing death. Blocky understands that Pen can't go betraying their trust.

During the challenge, Robot Flower accuses Golf Ball of being a fake, but Blocky tells them to worry about arguing later. He later calls out Basketball on being the impostor when she calls Grassy basic, due to him knowing Grassy and Basketball are actually friends.

In "Return of the Rocket Ship", Blocky asks Golf Ball what an MMR is after she presents it. Golf Ball explains that MMR stands for "Mutual Mind Reader", and how it is used. Later during the challenge, Blocky questions Golf Ball for the use of the broken Rocket after it was retrieved, leading to Golf Ball telling him to turn the Rocket's satellite dish to dig downwards.

In "Don't Dig Straight Down", Blocky and his team find the emerald so they wall-jump to the surface. When DeathPACT takes their team's emerald and becomes safe, Blocky agrees with Robot Flower that they can’t do that, and says that it’s cheating.

Later, after the grass around Golf Ball dies, Blocky tells Golf Ball that she is pretty stinky, and that she can’t blame the grass for not wanting to put up with that. Eventually, Blocky explains that Iance is making a message to tell Golf Ball to stop. Blocky then gets irritated when Golf Ball doesn’t stop.

Official Character Guide biography

Blocky book
As the first BFDI contestant to rejoin after elimination, Blocky is a mischievous wooden block that loves to prank people. He, being made out of wood... does not like fire.

He once melted Ice Cube to put out a fire, used Spongy on a trampoline to squish the Announcer. Blocky seems to play these jokes when he knows the result of his pranks will be okay. He especially thinks it's fun to pop Bubble.

Did You Know?: Despite being massively successful among friends, Blocky's original prankster series "Blocky's Funny Doings International", is actually not international.

  • Blocky was originally going to rejoin in "Puzzling Mysteries" but this was dropped.
  • Blocky may be the strongest contestant as he managed to rip Golf Ball in half in "Getting Teardrop To Talk", and Golf Ball's hardness was strong enough to stop and crack the Announcer Crusher.

  • Blocky's voting pose and background in Battle for BFDI is a reference to Blocky's Funny Doings International.
