|“||Because the Four-colored team has a place to live, they are the Have Cots!||”|
The Have Cots (formerly the Four-Colored Team) is one of the two teams (out of the eleven total) that were established since the post-split of Battle for BFB. It consisted of Balloony, Bubble, Gelatin, Leafy, Lollipop, Ruby, and Teardrop. Its members were chosen by Four from those who were colored closer to "Four's color" (blue).
The name originates from having a tall tower, therefore, having a place to live.
The team separated in "The Game Has Changed" when BFB reached its next stage in the competition.

In "X Marks the Spot", they use the FreeSmart SuperVan that was in Ruby's possession to locate X. They capture X using a lasso, but when they turn around to get Teardrop, the lasso snaps, resulting in X landing near the X Colored Team, which puts the Four Colored Team up for elimination. In the stinger, the team gets Teardrop. Lollipop then informs the team that they're up for elimination.
In "Take the Tower", the team does Cake at Stake, in which its revealed that the person with the fewest votes is to be eliminated instead of the person with the most. Lollipop asks why this was the case, but Four responds by screeching and licking her. Balloony urges Four to pat Lollipop in an attempt to wake her up, but Four ends up shattering her in the process.
Balloony is later the one revealed to be eliminated. Four tells him that there are no more empty spots left in the EXIT, and X responds to his confusion by sending him to the BRB. Bubble, upon being recovered and finding out that Balloony was the one to be eliminated, starts stacking bricks in an attempt to get him back. Right before Blocky is able to stop her, however, Four intervenes, and initiates the next challenge.
The team's initial strategy is to impersonate someone from the Have Nots and infiltrate their base. Lollipop and Bubble's attempts at disguising as Flower were easily seen through and called out, but Gelatin managed to fool Firey and was easily let into their base. After the tightrope bridge was formed, Flower was knocked off her team's tower and caused it to crumble to pieces, securing the Have Cots team victory.
In "How Loe Can You Grow?", Gelatin asks his team what they should do as a strategy. Lollipop suggests that they should bring the sun to them, but Bubble objects to this. Ruby then tells her team that she can alter the sun's rays, and turns herself into a lens to do so. Gelatin tells Teardrop to tell Four about their strategy, to which she does, earning them one point. However, due to the intensity of the sun rays, one of the aloe vera plants ended up burning up, subtracting two points from their total score.
Later, when the two teams are traveling towards the sun, Ruby asks where her team's spaceship even came from. Gelatin says that a friend donated it to him, but can't remember which and decides that it's not important. Because the Have Nots had more points by the end of the challenge, the Have Cots team was up for elimination.
In "A Taste of Space", the team is still in space from the last episode. Gelatin punctures a hole in a plastic window to stick his tongue out, releasing the air in the process. As a result, the prize for being safe in Cake at Stake is air to breathe. Ruby is eliminated, so she was sent to the BRB. The rest of the team land on the sun and get out to dump ice on it. However, nothing happens. They then proceed to go through numerous challenge strategies until times up, and they are teleported back to earth. Leafy ends up getting the win for her team when she dumps ice on X, keeping him to cool down for good.
In "Let's Raid the Warehouse", during the challenge, Bubble immediately volunteers to be a shopper for her team and asks Teardrop if she wants to be one, to which she accepts. Bubble also gets Gelatin to come along with them to Yellow Face's Warehouse after noting how weird Leafy and Lollipop act around her. Once the shoppers for the two teams arrive at the Warehouse, they split up to go their own separate ways.
Upon spotting some forks in the Warehouse, Gelatin immediately throws some out of the entrance and, after realizing what he had done, asks if Lollipop would like them. Bubble tells him no, and the team instead opts to buy her spoons. Later, while Bubble and Gelatin are gathering Lollipop's gift up, Teardrop runs over with a niceness detector, meant as a gift for Leafy. Satisfied with their gifts, the Have Cots prepare to head back.
During the judging, X's satisfaction detector scores Leafy an 8/10, and Lollipop with a 3/10, totaling them up to 11 points. The Have Cots end up winning for the second time in a row.
In "Who Stole Donut's Diary?", the team is tasked with gathering evidence to properly accuse the theft culprit. Bubble questions Four and gets popped. Gelatin questions Blocky, Lollipop questions Woody, and Leafy questions Firey. Lollipop and Gelatin also form an alliance after realizing they were the only ones who weren’t around when Leafy stole Dream Island. Teardrop is tasked with documenting everything that happens with a typewriter but instead uses it to write a comic. After an agreement in a private conversation, Leafy (incorrectly) confesses to her "theft" of the book, making the team wrongfully accuse her, and due to the accusation being incorrect, the team is up for elimination.
In "Fashion For Your Face!", Bubble is eliminated in Cake at Stake. For the challenge, they take a train ride to Yellow Face's Warehouse to find materials to break Four out of the cage, but the team gets kicked by Flower after they took off her sweaters. They hit a box saying "DON'T OPEN, PURPLE INSIDE". Gelatin previously warned Leafy about that same box in the warehouse before they were kicked by Flower. Leafy tells Gelatin that she knows he's overwhelmed and Teardrop is already getting the materials she needs.
However, the box cracks and Purple Face comes out, threatening to eat the team. They eventually have to ball-up in Flower's sweaters and are eaten. However, they are safe from any harm thanks to Flower's sweaters, even though Lollipop can't move her limbs. Afterwards, Leafy states that the smell was getting odd, only to be interrupted by Portable Music Player (voiced by boyinaband. Afterwards, Leafy tells the team they've been inside Purple Face for 7 hours and the Have Nots could win at any moment. Lollipop asks her "fellow newbie" (Gelatin) if he has any idea of escaping, Gelatin suggests punching their way out. Teardrop decides to figure out who of her teammates screams the loudest when threatened with having their sweater torn apart. She settles on Gelatin and rips his sweater, causing him to die in Purple Face’s stomach acid. Four hears Gelatin’s screams from his prison and recovers him, giving Gelatin a chance to (accidentally) bend the bars, freeing Four and making his team safe.
In "The Game Has Changed", the remaining members were used as the cake for Cake at Stake. Later, X announces that since they're in the final seven, they'll be merging, which means this is the end for the Have Cots.
