Wait, we already played that. Didn't we?
 

An intro is a part (normally at the beginning or middle) of an episode in which the theme song plays. Intros and their theme songs have been altered over the course of the series.

Total Firey Points

There is a panel in one of the Total Firey Points books that says "Intro".

BFDI

BFDI intro

In BFDI, the intro starts with all the contestants standing in the plains, with most of them looking towards the camera. The camera then pans to Dream Island, as the BFDI logo appears. It then cuts to black and shows the credits.

In "Sweet Tooth", the intro begins to play for a second time in the episode, before the Announcer cuts it off, remembering they had already played it.

This also happened during "Gardening Hero", but Leafy insists he play it again for good measure, which he does.

BFDIA

BFDIA intro

In BFDIA, the intro is identical to the BFDI intro, except the landscape is a different shade and Dream Island is now gone. The logo appears like normal, but instead of cutting to black, "again" appears below the logo and the credits fade in.

A modified version of the intro was shown in "Zeeky Boogy Doog", where it read "Battle for Nothing" instead, with exclamation points replacing "again". The only difference in terms of visuals is Pin's angry facial expression.

Music: "bass 8ths sample.wav" but high-pitched 2 semi-tones from G to A.

IDFB

IDFB intro

In IDFB, the intro starts with the contestants outside of the LOL falling against a white background, changing between 1-3 different expressions. It shows their names below them. The LOL then shows the contestants who are still inside. The shot changes to the original layout, with the contestants standing in the foreground before the camera pans into the background, now showing Yoyle City instead, with the IDFB logo appearing. The theme song is a remix of the original theme.

BFB

The landscape from BFB 1-16.

In BFB, it begins with a poorly drawn version of Four. The camera then moves quickly down a line of the contestants, who are organized by color, ending at Marker and Pen. It does not show any purple, pink, or red characters. The camera then zooms out to show the contestants, including those not shown in the line, now on an unknown, monochromatic landscape, with Four standing in the background. It then cuts to the logo, with a picture of Four and X, and the text "Battle for B.F.D.I." or "Battle for B.F.B." emerging from it.

Subsequent episodes don't play the beginning of the intro, and they start at the part where Four is poorly drawn.

The landscape in "Enter the Exit"

In "Enter the Exit", a Battle for Nothing intro plays. The following changes happen; they reflect the characters' appearances as of BFB 10:

  • Four is missing.
  • The remaining members of Beep are orange.
  • Tree and a fortune cookie are inside Bottle.
  • Woody is dented.
  • Cloudy and Bomby are covered in tape.
  • Saw is missing her handle.
  • Contestants that are eliminated or dead are absent.
  • X is frowning.
  • X's leg is tilted to form an "N".
  • A dashed outline of Four's body can be seen.
  • The title reads "Battle for Nothing" instead of "Battle for B.F.D.I.".

The landscape from BFB 17 to BFB 26.

This intro is a reference to the other Battle for Nothing intro from "Zeeky Boogy Doog", down to the part where Yellow Face says that they're just battling for nothing.

In "X Marks the Spot", a new modified shorter intro plays concurrently to the event when TPOT was introduced.

In "The Hidden Contestant" and "Uprooting Everything", a new intro with Profily plays.

In "Uprooting Everything", the landscape changes from The Pillary Ruins to The Desert. Profily is also in a different pose.

In "B.F.B. = Back From Beginning", the landscape is still The Desert, but the Announcer and Purple Face can be seen near Four's bus.

In "SOS (Save Our Show)", Four was removed from the intro, and the landscape got changed, with the cactuses replaced with ones shaped after Four, and the last part of the intro changed, with Four replaced with the Announcer and X frowning. The Announcer has two platforms for X's feet, and is holding up a sign with the letter "F" on it.

In "Chapter Complete", the Announcer replaces Four as the first one seen in the line of characters and is briefly shown in the same style as Four when he crushed Black Hole.

The landscape from BFB 29

The intro starts after a character's limb is in the same position that Four's hand is in at the beginning of the intro (including most quotes they say before the intro plays), not including BFB 29 and BFB 30 where Four is replaced respectively by nothing and by the Announcer:

Music: "- MUSIC OF FOUR'S 3D HAND -"

TPOT

TPOT intro

The TPOT intro was animated by COAL BONES.[1]

The intro starts off with Two using their icon, a V shape, which the camera zooms in on. While that happens their voice becomes more high pitched becoming a music note. Two and Winner then fist bump. Ice Cube and Cloudy appear in a watery transition. Some of that water lands on Fanny, making her angry. Clock then shows up for a split second, who is also alongside Gaty. Needle and Pen appear. Needle is also upside-down. Book appears, and Foldy flies out of one of her pages. Bottle is hit by Foldy, which turns into Nickel, while Tree and Grassy are playing tetherball. The camera then zooms out to reveal TV, Golf Ball, Tennis Ball and Remote watching TV's screen. Golf Ball presses (kicks) Remote, causing Tennis Ball to be dismayed. Black Hole appears out of nowhere on the screen, and Golf Ball kicks Remote again, and the screen turns static. Then, the camera zooms in, which proceeds to Yellow Face cooking Eggy. Lightning appears happily flying across the screen. Barf Bag is seen talking to Bomby whose fuse is lit up thanks to Lightning, but when it runs out, Pie explodes. Donut appears, while Snowball and Basketball are angrily glaring at each other, suggesting that they are rivals now. Coiny high fives Snowball and jumps on top of Basketball, and he then grabs Bell's string. Rocky, Pin and Fries are in front of a grotato plant. Rocky bites onto to the plant, and it sprouts into the air. Cake, Naily, and Price Tag are launched into the air as a result. As Rocky continues rising on the growing plant, Robot Flower is looking at her reflection, which turns out to be Saw. A pentagon appears, showing that Eraser is using Saw now, and he cuts the pentagon into a triangle and a quadrilateral, in reference to "Getting Teardrop to Talk". Pillow puts the triangle on her head while riding Puffball and knocks Marker off a cliff. Marker lands with the rest of the cast on top of Two, while the camera zooms out in BFDI style. The original BFDI intro audio plays for a moment, when zooming out on Two, when they make the "two" symbol with their hand, and the BFDI:TPOT logo appears.

Music: "Gibberish!!" by COAL BONES.[1]

Battle for Permission To Meet Ten

The intro's title screen.

The intro for Battle for Permission To Meet Ten starts off with solid-color silhouettes of all of the contestants, followed by a title screen.

Trivia

Four and X spelling "BFB"

  • Not only do Rocky, Golf Ball, Needle, Tennis Ball, Coiny, Pin, and Ice Cube appear in every intro, they are also the only characters who are always seen standing on the landscape for each intro before the camera pans (or in BFB's case, transitions) to the title of the show.
  • BFDIA 1 played the intro the latest into the video (percentage-wise).
  • Fanny is the only person in the TLC to be moving in the IDFB intro, as her blades are spinning.
    • Firey is the only one outside the TLC with a moving asset.
  • Spongy is the only one with 2 poses in the IDFB intro.
    • Evil Leafy is the only one with 1 pose.
  • BFDIA and BFB's intros are currently the only intros with modified versions.
    • BFDIA's intro was changed once, while BFB's was done so almost every other episode.
  • BFB's intro is played after a character makes a pose similar to the one that Four does in the intro.
    • The contestants who have started the BFB intro are: Snowball, Spongy, Grassy, Bomby, Barf Bag, Coiny, Stapy, Liy, Eraser, Saw, Firey, Loser, Flower, Lollipop, Teardrop, Gelatin, Profily, and Leafy.
      • Snowball is the first contestant to start the intro to BFB.
      • Spongy is the only armless contestant to start the intro.
      • Grassy is both the first BFB newcomer and recommended character to start the intro.
      • Barf Bag is both the first female to start the intro and contestant to do it multiple times, having done it twice. Flower (partly) and Teardrop would later be the second and third contestants to start the intro twice.
      • Stapy is the first eliminated contestant to start the intro.
    • This could apply to TPOT as well, since Two made a two sign with their hand before the intro started.
  • Several mistakes and errors can be seen in the early BFB intro:
    • Even though Tree is green, and is shown on the landscape between Tennis Ball and Gelatin, he does not show up in the line of characters until BFB 3.
    • Spongy is missing his legs in the first part of the intro. This was later fixed in BFB 3, but was reversed in BFB 4.
    • Lightning and Pillow didn't have arms when all of the contestants are shown at once until the intro in BFB 3.
    • Until BFB 4, Robot Flower doesn't have a body.
  • The flash file for BFB 3's intro can be found here, it used to be in the BFB 3 flash files, but was deleted for an unknown reason.
  • Everyone after Marker in the lineup has rough finishes to their limbs and facial features out of everyone else in the intro.
  • At the end of the BFB intro, if you look closely at X's legs and Four, it looks like it spells "BFB", the name of the season. In the "Battle for Nothing" one-time intro, X's left foot is bent, making it spell "BFN" instead.
  • Starting with BFB 13, the intro got updated, replacing Saw's old handle with her new pink handle.
  • In BFB 14, the intro gets another update with replacing Dora's hairstyle with her new ponytail hairstyle.
  • In BFB 17, there was a new intro featuring the contestants still in BFB.
    • In the following episode, BFB 18, this intro is updated so that no contestant is not on the line.
  • In the BFB post-split intro:
    • Because Flower is at the end of the line, she's the only contestant who retains her previous pose from the pre-split intro.
    • In BFB 26, Profily is in the intro and is placed in proper color order.
    • Teardrop, Bubble, Lollipop, and Profily are the only characters who are animated during the intro.
      • Profily is also the only character to be animated in the landscape shot.
    • In BFB 27, the intro was once again updated but there is a mistake, Loser goes too fast causing Taco to overlap him for a split second.
    • Loser, Firey, Woody, Gelatin, and Leafy are now further apart.
    • Profily has gotten a new pose to fit the BFB style but still does the waving animation. Profily is also no longer animated in the landscape shot.
    • The landscape part is now the desert, making it the 3rd time it's changed.
    • In BFB 28, the Announcer, Purple Face, and Four's Bus are all added in the landscape shot.
    • In BFB 29, the World's Largest Oven is added to the landscape shot.
    • In BFB 30, the Announcer replaces Four as the first character shown in the intro.
  • "Chapter Complete" marks the first and only time where the intro is started without anyone raising their arm (or leg), as the Announcer simply turns to the screen.
  • All the TPOT contestants

    In the TPOT Intro:
    • Close to the ending of the intro for TPOT, the original guitar riff from the first season of BFDI can be heard. During this moment, the visuals also reference the original intro.
    • Remote's facial details are black instead of white. This is likely an error.
    • In the final shot:
      • On TV's screen is a teapot (for "TPOT").
      • Price Tag's face reads "P:2" (for "Power of Two").
      • The time on Clock's face is 2:00 (for "Power of TWO").
      • Winner's hand is holding up a V sign—both a "2" (for Power of TWO) and a "Victory" (because they're Winner).
      • Donut is doing his same pose from "Yeah, Who? I Wanna Know".
  • aimkid, known for their Lemon Demon fan music videos, was originally considered to animate the TPOT intro. However, they declined due to being in a bad state of their life.
  • The TPOT Intro is the first time a different program other then Adobe Animate was used to animate BFDI since The Liar Ball You Don't Want.
  • Pie is the only contestant to die in an intro.
