— Foldy, "What Do You Think of Roleplay?"
Foldy is a female contestant in Battle for BFDI that first appeared in "Getting Teardrop to Talk". Her team is Free Food. Foldy's name is based on her appearance as an origami, which is created by folding a piece of a paper pentagon. She made her non-canonical debut in the joke video titled "BFDI APPISIOTE 225555555!!!!!", along with Liy, Stapy, and HelloKevin. Foldy is a folded piece of blue-green paper.
Foldy appears to be an armless pale, light grayish turquoise and a grayish arctic blue piece of origami 3:4 paper with a grayish cerulean outline. She is the dodecahedron module on HTwins.net.
Foldy is typically a kind, passive character who is usually eager to participate in challenges and help others, such as Marker. She also seems to be fond of playing Rock Paper Scissors with Stapy and Marker. She is seen as more kind and calm than Stapy. It seems that she's easy to hold strong grudges against other people, notably Liy, and recently all of iance. The full extent of her vengeful nature is shown in "Get to the Top in 500 Steps", where she violently attacks Flower while the two are at the top of the 500-step staircase, wishing to make iance lose to avenge Stapy.
Official Character Guide biography
Foldy is a folded, aerodynamic piece of paper (shaped like a pentagon!) who can glide on currents of air. How does she do it? It's the magic of 3 × 4 dimensions and intricate folds (which Fries can't seem to grasp)! Despite her pleasant appearance, Foldy often holds on to grudges.
That said, Stapy is Foldy's best and dearest friend. Their bond might be stronger than any two characters in the show. They fight for and stand up for one another. So sweet!
Did You Know?: If you put 12 Foldys together, you get a dodecahedron.
- Glide: Foldy can glide in the air since she is made out of paper.

Battle for BFDI
In "Getting Teardrop to Talk", she appears talking to Tennis Ball, who is helping Golf Ball find Leafy. She later joins team Free Food, and invites Stapy along with her. In the challenge, she plays Rock Paper Scissors with him, until Fries tells them to stop. He then throws her in the air, in an attempt for her to grab one of X's baskets. However, she makes contact with the fan blades, causing her demise.
In "Lick Your Way to Freedom", Foldy is still dead, and Stapy and the other Free Food members want Four to recover her. Death P.A.C.T. saves her from one of the jawbreakers, where she is face to face with Liy, who tells her to go back to her own team with Stapy. When Foldy returns to her team, Stapy notices that she looks "totally steamed" and she explains this was because she saw Liy.
In "Today's Very Special Episode", she is first seen playing Rock Paper Scissors with Stapy again, until Marker wants to play. When he says he doesn't know how to, Foldy says it was fine, and protests against Stapy saying that was lame. She explains to him that whoever passed the most gas wins, which Marker is confused by. While playing, Marker keeps making false moves, which she informs him are wrong. The fourth time Marker tries to make a move, his hand is in a shape of four, which worries Foldy, possibly because she knew Four would come out of Marker's hand. During the challenge, she is part of her team's makeover, which they call The Year's Hottest Look.
In "Enter the Exit", she is revived. Shortly after, she asks where Stapy is. Using Camera, Eraser showed Foldy the footage of Match showing that Stapy cheated. Now knowing of this, she eyes Match angrily.
In "Get to the Top in 500 Steps", Foldy gets to the top of the 500-step staircase very quickly but does not press the buzzer. Flower reaches the top after her, but Foldy reveals that she is not pressing the buzzer because she wishes to avenge Stapy, who was eliminated thanks to iance in "This Episode Is About Basketball". In order to avenge him, she wants to make sure iance loses the challenge. Flower pushes Foldy off, but she floats back up and presses the buzzer, securing Free Food's safety.
In "Don't Dig Straight Down", Foldy asks if the department store Yellow Face works for sells emeralds. He says that it doesn't but that they do sell cheap plastic toys that look like emeralds. Foldy attempts to turn them in, but is stopped by Fries, claiming that he thinks Four would not like to be cheated. However, when convinced by Marker to turn them in, they do. Foldy screams when Four becomes distorted as he compliments their forgery, but is unimpressed when he makes a joke about 'forgery' sounding similar to 'for Dream Island'. She cheers when Four declares their team safe.
In "The Four is Lava", Foldy is shown standing on Bell to avoid the lava. She jumps off so that Puffball could take care of Spongy's jet and then lands on Puffball to ride to Four. After a temporary attack from Blocky, they make it back to Four and finish the contest, placing third.
