— Grassy, on multiple occasions
Grassy is a contestant on Battle for BFDI. He was one of the 30 recommended characters that could've been voted to join Battle for Dream Island. Like Remote and Pie, Grassy only received 7 votes and placed 17th place and was flung into the Locker of Losers.
Grassy appears to be comprised of blades of grass, and his body is lime green. His appearance has never been changed until BFB, where he got a round bottom to make his design more connected.
- Grassy is darker.
- Grassy is brighter.
- Grassy is smaller.
- Grassy gets a new, wavier, and curvier design.
- Grassy's bottom is smoother and has an outline.
Grassy appears to be quite childish and joyful, as he supposedly enjoys funny doings, much like Blocky. He usually talks in the third person point of view, often saying his own name when referring to himself. He is not afraid of sharing his feelings, like when he told Blocky that he wanted more respect from his team, mainly Golf Ball. He also considers himself to be useful. These facts seem to show that he has a rather high self-esteem, but not quite to the point of being arrogant or egotistical. He appears to have a difficult time talking, as he needed assistance from Basketball to say "respected" in "Lick Your Way to Freedom".

In "The Reveal", he is one of the 30 recommended characters up for joining. His audition features him appearing from camouflage. However, he receives 7 votes, which is not enough, so he, along with Remote and Pie is sent to the LOL.
In BFDIA, Grassy was eligible to compete, but he only received 53 votes, ranking 55th out of everybody. Only Roboty, Tree, Saw, Bottle and Bracelety received fewer votes with 50, 49, 36, 29 and 18 votes respectively. Gaty received 1 more vote than him, with 54.
Grassy was later seen in the background in "No More Snow!" along with 8-Ball and Bell, who also failed to join, implying they had escaped the Locker of Losers, but in "Welcome Back", they are back inside.
As mentioned above, Grassy was put back into the TLC at some point.
In "Welcome Back", he only appears in the voting card.
During the challenge, he asks Golf Ball what his purpose is, but he is immediately belittled by Golf Ball, who calls him "an overgrown section of the lawn the gardener forgot to mow". Shortly after Golf Ball's death, 8-Ball assumes temporary team leader, and Grassy says "Why not Grassy?" 8-Ball's usage of the trebuchet brings ABNTT immunity.
In "Lick Your Way to Freedom", he is first seen with Blocky, saying that he needs respect. He is seen yelling at Four, and when he has the chance to speak (cutting off Saw and Stapy), he asks Four to recover Tennis Ball. Since Grassy was the first to finish his sentence, Four recovers Tennis Ball. However, he is still yelling at Four after.
8-Ball chomps on a jawbreaker to free Golf Ball, and ABNTT is safe for another day. Blocky shows sympathy for Grassy, reporting Golf Ball's abuse of him to her. Basketball then deems 8-Ball the team leader.
In "Today's Very Special Episode", he does not speak. When he starts to draw, Golf Ball and 8-Ball start to argue in which direction Grassy should go. Later, Golf Ball nabs the marker from Grassy and starts to scribble. Despite this, ABNTT barely wins, placing 6th again and behind The Losers.
In "Four Goes Too Far", his first appearance was in the heart scene, getting the Twinkle once. He gets in Golf Ball's Rocket to escape to space. What wasn't known to either Grassy nor the Better Namers is that team has also hitched a ride along.
With five minutes on the timer, ABNTT and have a stare-off, passing the Twinkle to one another. However, Taco gives the Twinkle to Bell, saving both teams, but the rocket breaks and they are stranded on the Moon.
In "The Liar Ball You Don't Want", he, his team and are still stuck on the Moon. He first appears looking at Pie flying away to the distance, commenting that the situation back at Earth "seems chaotic".
He later changes the position of the rocket's communicator dish numerous times, until the rocket becomes unstable. However, he "is here to protect", and nudges the rocket. That results in connection being lost, giving Remote the ability to send a bomb Robot Flower's way. If the bomb explodes, everyone on the Moon will die, so Robot Flower closes the connection between her and Remote, sacrificing a win for her teammates - and 's - safety.
In "Questions Answered", after finding out Donut can transmit matter through the camera, which is being communicated through TV, Basketball tells him to get them back to Earth that way, and Grassy agrees to. When they do get back to Earth (which is caused by Donut rolling the Earth itself through the camera and out of TV), Cake at Stake properly starts, and all of the team are sitting far away from Donut. He says they didn't have to sit so far, and this is followed by Grassy going inside his hole, and then the rest of the team join him. Grassy is the 4th safe.
In "What Do You Think of Roleplay?" when Golf Ball asks him to prove he's himself, Grassy says "I'm Grassy!" but that isn't convincing enough for her. Meanwhile, "Basketball" says that this examination of A Better Name Than That's members would be quicker if Grassy "wasn't so basic". That immediately gives her away as being the fake, as pointed out by Blocky.
In "Return of the Rocket Ship" when Golf Ball states that she built a MMR, Grassy responds that he loves measles, mumps, and rubella (referring to three serious diseases), in which Fanny replies that she hates them.
Later on, Tennis Ball, using the MMR to read X's mind, finds out what X's treasure is and where some of the emeralds are located. He tells the rest of A Better Name Than That the information. Grassy repeats Tennis Ball's words by yelling to everyone else despite TV's idea to keep it a secret, which results to Golf Ball giving Grassy a disgruntled look.
Later, Grassy agrees with Blocky that Golf Ball is stinky.
Official Character Guide biography
When Grassy is excited, his blades wiggle. Grassy will often speak in the third person, and he likes to sit on people such as Basketball, Blocky, and Tennis Ball. When Grassy is standing in grass, he feels like he's standing in his own hair. Grassy also feels tingly when he does photosynthesis.
Grassy knows to speak up when he's not getting the respect he deserves. Sometimes, it's difficult to find words for what he means, but Basketball helps him out with that! Grassy also enjoys words that rhyme with "respect", such as "protect".
Did You Know?: Grassy is not afraid of lawn mowers, which only give him a haircut.
