Battle for Dream Island - Episode 11 "Lofty"-1

Battle for Dream Island - Episode 11 "Lofty"-1


"Lofty" is the eleventh episode of Battle for Dream Island, and the last episode before the merge occurs. It was released on November 1, 2010.


Cold open

Golf Ball and Tennis Ball are seen arguing which one of them a certain cloud looks like, while Firey is barfed on by Rocky. When Coiny laughs at the incident, Firey proceeds to fight with Coiny. Golf Ball mentions that their fighting is pointless, but the two defend themselves by saying the other is a jerk.

After the intro

Golf Ball then notices Announcer, and wonders what he's doing. Announcer then tells them that Another Name lost last episode and Cake at stake starts.

Cake at Stake

While Another Name walks to the Cake at Stake area, many objects from the other teams laugh at them. During Cake at Stake, Announcer asked if Golf Ball or Firey wanted to use their Win Token. Firey didn't, but Golf Ball did, having only half of her votes being counted.

There were 37 votes. Tennis Ball is safe with 2 votes. Firey gets 3 votes and Coiny gets 5. Golf Ball and Rocky get 12 and 15 votes, respectively. When Tennis Ball is told he is safe, Announcer says that the cake was too expensive, so he gives them imaginary cake. Even with her Win Token, Golf Ball and Rocky are the two with the highest votes. The Squishy Cherries have to pick one of the two to go onto their team. By unanimous decision, Rocky is chosen, and Golf Ball is sent to the Tiny Loser Chamber.

For the first part of the challenge, the Announcer tells the contestants to climb up a flight of stairs, which Tennis Ball falls off of. Announcer then makes the contestants tie a balloon around their waists, then he makes the platform they are standing on disappear. Firey screams due his fear of heights which causes Coiny to tease him. After Announcer explains the rules, the game starts.

The Squashy Grapes plan to attack the Cherries first because they have seven people, thus being a bigger threat. Blocky then picks up three nails up and throws them at the rival team. Pencil does the same, and they collide in midair before falling down. Pen accidentally pops Bubble's balloon. Firey gets slapped by Coiny, thus guiding his balloon to a nail held by Blocky, and Coiny shatters Ice Cube with a nail, commenting that he's an "ice cold killer". Snowball ends up popping Pencil's balloon because his team's balloon color is pink as opposed to red. Eraser then explains that pink is manly. Announcer then says that red balloons were too expensive.

When Firey hits the ground, he accidentally lights Bomby's fuse. Coiny attempts to use the basket of nails as a source of protection from the nail that Blocky throws at him, but both his and the basket's balloons both get popped by a nail, resulting in Another Name losing again. Coiny falls, and Bomby suddenly explodes. The remaining Grapes (Leafy and Blocky) then improvise in popping balloons, whether it's biting Snowball's balloon (by Blocky), squeezing Eraser's balloon (by Leafy), and making Rocky's balloon disappear by saying "poof" (by Blocky). The Grapes win the challenge, and Another Name goes to Cake at Stake again.

  • Cary Huang as Tennis Ball, Rocky, Coiny, and Match
  • Michael Huang as Golf Ball, Firey, Bubble, Eraser, Pen, Snowball, Pencil, Leafy, Blocky, and Bomby
  • AT&T/NaturalReader Mike as the Announcer


  • Bomby is the first recommended character, recommended by jaysillyboy.
  • This is the shortest episode of BFDI ever, since it lasts only 5 minutes and 55 seconds.
  • This is the only episode where Pencil, Match, and Bubble appear, but do not interact with each other.
    • This is also the case for Pen and Eraser.
    • This is the second time Bomby appeared.
  • Snowball and Golf Ball have an indirect quarrel during the Golf Ball and Rocky's choice of being picked.
  • Ice Cube appears in this episode, but has no lines. However, she can be seen laughing with other contestants when Another Name walks through the elimination area.
  • After this episode, the Squishy Cherries were larger than the other two teams combined.
  • When Eraser and Snowball are arguing, Eraser's arms are below the rope. When he waves his arms in the air and puts them by his sides, they are above.
  • After Coiny slaps Firey to Blocky's nail, the camera cuts out to see that Firey is pretty close to Blocky's nail. When the camera cuts in, he's far away and drifts over. When the camera cuts out, Firey is far away again.
  • Nails randomly appear in Blocky's and Coiny's hands before they pop Coiny (Blocky) and Ice Cube (Coiny).
  • This is the second episode to have subtitles, the first being Take the Plunge: Part 1 and the third being The Long-lost Yoyle City.
  • This episode marks Pen's first and only kill on another character.
  • Firey is now known to have acrophobia (fear of heights).
  • The balloons in the episode are later used in the asset for Balloony.
  • The contest is very similar to the old Nintendo game Balloon Fight.
  • Golf Ball is the second person to be eliminated using a Win Token with 12 votes, the first being Needle.
  • This is the first episode where it contains a scene where Leafy dodges the nails, the second one becoming Gardening Hero, but this time, it is Spongy.
  • Throughout the episode, there are motion blurs.
  • This is the last episode before the merge.
  • This episode is the only episode that features the Cherries finishing in something other than first ever since 3 teams were formed.


  • While everyone is climbing up the stairs, Rocky is nowhere to be seen. He then reappears when everyone is done climbing.
  • When Tennis Ball received a splat, Firey and Coiny are never shown that they felt a splat by the imaginary cake from the Announcer.
  • When Snowball popped Pencil's balloon, the nail disappeared.
  • When Bomby explodes, Pen, Pencil, Tennis Ball, Firey and Match disappear.
    • This is likely they are thrown away, just like what happened to Flower in "Barriers and Pitfalls".
  • Firey wasn't flaming when he fell to the ground after his balloon was popped along with him slapping Coiny.
  • All objects were moving up and down and so were the basket of nails tied to the balloon, however Ice Cube wasn't moving up and down.
  • There are a lot of time when the contestants were not moving up and down.
  • In 3:31, Firey's flames wasn't burning.
  • When Announcer tells Golf Ball and Rocky that the Squishy Cherries will either vote one onto their team or to be eliminated, Snowball has no arms.
    • However, they are back when he says "I'd say Rocky, because GB said my brain is small!"
  • Rocky turns around too quickly when Firey and Coiny slap each other.
  • When Leafy grabs some nails, her strap disappears.
  • When everyone is climbing up the stairs, Firey and Coiny look smaller in this scene.
