I wonder where the new stairs lead.


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 the Announcer and wonders what he's doing. The 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, 8 more than last time. 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, the Announcer says that the cake was too expensive, so he gives them an 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. The Announcer then makes the contestants tie a balloon around their waists. Then he makes the platform they are standing on disappear. Firey screams due to 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 and throws them at the rival team. Pencil does the same, and they collide in midair before falling. 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, not red. Eraser then explains that pink is manly. The 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. Unfortunately, both his and the basket's balloons get popped by a nail, resulting in Another Name losing again. Coiny falls, and Bomby 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.

  • Ice Cube appears; however, she does not speak.


  • 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 also the episode with the shortest title ever, with only 5 characters.

  • 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).

  • The balloons in the episode are later used in the asset for Balloony.

  • This is the first episode to have a scene take place at night (other than the stingers), when the contestants climb the stairs.
  • 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.
  • This episode is the only episode where it unintentionally attacks trans people, due to Pen saying a transphobic line at 2:05.
    • Even Cary has stated that the line is transphobic.[1]
