|“||I've found my next adventure!||”|
Liy (pronounced ˈ"laɪˌi" or "LIE-ee") is a female contestant on Battle for BFDI and a former member of team Death P.A.C.T.. She originally appeared as a character in the joke video "BFDI APPISIOTE 225555555!!!!!", in which she was brown and white instead of light blue, with this appearance returning in "Fortunate Ben" when she was eliminated.
Liy appears to be a plastic light switch from the front and a wooden switch from the back. Her front side is a periwinkle blue, and her backside is a brownish-orange color with her switch being a light yellow.
Liy can be seen as a multiple sided individual, as she has many different character traits that are seen throughout the series.
Liy is seen as somewhat of a pushy and rather manipulative contestant. She can sometimes be seen trying to force other contestants to do what she wants, like making Ice Cube wiggle Teardrop's vocal cords to make her talk, or by trying to get Clock to form a truce with her. Liy also complains about not being supported, as shown in BFB 11 when she did not get enough votes to rejoin.
However, Liy can also be seen as a curious individual, who manipulates others in the search of knowledge, such as wondering what Teardrop has to say, or wondering what was at the top of Bell's string.
In addition, she can also be perceived as a contestant attempting to be kind, who wants to make up for her murderous past. She was seen saving the lives of various contestants, and she has in fact saved 2,763 lives.
Liy could also potentially be an irritable person, as she can become angry quite quickly in some ways, such as when Ice Cube decides to stop helping her, and when she discovers she had the most votes. She also gets very cranky when she's bored as seen in "Enter the Exit".
Official Character Guide biography
Naturally curious, Liy is one of the most adventurous characters in BFDI. She is a plastic light switch. To some, though, she is somewhat pushy. She's always forcing others to do as she wants them to do, such as trying to get Ice Cube to wiggle Teardrop's vocal cords to get her to talk.
Liy is curious and will always look to discover new things, such as the top of Bell's string.
Did You Know?: Liy wishes that she was an empress, so she could say "I, Empress, am pressed and impressed" when toggled skillfully.

Pre-Battle for BFDI
Battle for BFDI
Liy made her animated debut in "Getting Teardrop to Talk". In it, she asked Tree to hold Teardrop's jaw open while she fiddles with her vocal cords in hopes of making her talk. Tree declines the offer and "leafs". Ice Cube later appears, and Liy asks if she is cool. Ice Cube is unsure, but Leafy interjects and says Ice Cube is cool, along with everyone else. Liy asks Icy again if she wants to help her make Teardrop talk. Ice Cube says "Yeah!". They immediately start playing around with TD's vocal cords, and Liy says she can almost hear Teardrop's voice. Bracelety is seen cheering Icy, and Clock asks her why she's condoning Ice Cube's "torturing" (wiggling the vocal cords) of Teardrop.
After Clock's argument with Bracelety and Fanny, he tells Liy to stop trying to force Teardrop to talk. Liy refuses, and then Clock asks Icy if she wants to stop. Liy interjects that Icy should make her decision, but Ice Cube says she wants to stop. Clock appreciates Ice Cube's decision, but Liy becomes frustrated with Ice Cube and says she thought that Ice Cube was cool. Icy apologizes and continues along with Liy to try to make Teardrop talk.
In "Today's Very Special Episode", during the contest, forks are seen circulating around her.
She ponders when Four is coming back. Pencil doesn't know when, and states that he disappears "sometimes". Liy says that her question was a rhetorical question, but Pencil tells Liy she made an error.
Liy says that she's bored because the four students inside the class had to do the same worksheet 50 times. When Pencil says that the many things the students have to do is to have an "appreciation ritual" for Four, Liy says that the "ritual" is not math.
When Bracelety finishes her work, Pencil sighs because break time had just begun, but Liy reiterates that the break time was not for her, but for Bracelety.
When the males who were eliminated but were not sent came into the class, Liy is shocked that Loser was eliminated. When 8-Ball and Stapy announce they want to get out of the class, Liy tells them they "just got here".
Her rejoining audition is admitting that she made a mistake prior to her elimination, and tells the viewers if they didn't vote for her, her team name would not make sense anymore.
In "Get to the Top in 500 Steps", she and the other EXITors ponder on what lies behind the locked door behind Pencil's seat. Stapy teases her, but she hits him and tells him the door is locked. Just before Liy uses one of Stapy's staples that she had just made into a lockpick to exit, Four appears and tells the EXITors to sit.
Since she was sat behind Roboty, Four couldn't see Liy. However, she still does not rejoin. She angrily asks why people does not support her. When 8-Ball asks her if she is sad because she did not rejoin, Liy proclaims that she isn't and that she has found her "next adventure".
