Shut up and get in the van!
— Pencil, "Get in the Van"

Pencil is a female contestant in Battle for Dream Island, Battle for Dream Island Again, IDFB, and Battle for BFDI. She also appears in Battle for Dream Island: The Power of Two. She was also the winner of Total Firey Island.

In Battle for Dream Island, Pencil was on the Squishy Cherries until the merge in "A Leg Up in the Race". She was eliminated in "Rescission" with 259 votes. She placed 9th overall.

In Battle for Dream Island Again, Pencil was on Team No-Name until "Get in the Van", when she left to form FreeSmart with the rest of her alliance, including alternates. She survived to appear in IDFB.

In Battle for BFDI, Pencil was on iance until her elimination in "Lick Your Way to Freedom". She received 4,595 votes to be eliminated, and placed 65th (last) overall.

Pencil also appears on Battle for Dream Island: The Power of Two.


Pencil appears to be a No. 2 graphite pencil, a pencil most commonly used for writing. Her tip is beige, her graphite is a dark grey, and her main body is 3 shades of orange. Her metal is silver, and her eraser is pink. Between BFDI and BFDIA, her eyes and mouth were moved closer together.



  • Pencil's eraser outlines are more loosely drawn.


  • Pencil's eraser outlines are more uniform.
  • Pencil's mouth is located higher.


  • Pencil's metal has its edges more roundish.


  • Pencil's darker shade is a bit reddish-orange kind of color.


In Battle for Dream Island, Pencil was usually nice to most of the other contestants, with a few exceptions such as Ice Cube (before she substituted Match in the alliance), Blocky, and mainly, Spongy. She usually stuck around her alliance and would stick up for the other members if anyone harassed them, as seen in episodes like "Don't Lose Your Marbles" where she called out Snowball for popping Bubble.

In Battle for Dream Island Again, Pencil started building more rivalries with other characters and took over as the alliance leader, forming FreeSmart. She also notably exhibits more sociopathic tendencies, from leaving Team No-Name behind inside Evil Leafy to win, to being much more manipulative. She does actions ranging from not caring about Gelatin saving Match's life in "Zeeky Boogy Doog", berating Bubble for popping, and in "No More Snow!", yelling at Ruby to the point of tears. Even then, she cared for her alliance members.

In IDFB, Pencil more or less acts the same, but is much nicer towards her alliance. In "Welcome Back", Pencil reveals that she doesn't really care about Match being trapped in the TLC, and calls her a little too "needy".

In Battle for BFDI, Pencil seems to be much bossier and manipulative, seeing that she tells Lightning to electrocute anyone she doesn't like (e.g.: Spongy, Flower, Fanny). She also verbally berated her alliance-mates to a higher extent, as she demoted Bubble to "bember" for trying to stop Lightning from zapping Flower. In the same episode, she proceeded to mock Bubble because of her "bember" nickname when she tries to convince Lightning not to zap Fanny.

Pencil acts noticeably more calm since she joined the EXIT. Leafy explained to Four that Pencil likes to exclude anyone who isn't a part of her clique, that usually being her alliance, or in this case, gender. This holds true based on her behavior in past seasons. Pencil shows that she's still very loyal to her alliance, this being her reasoning why she should rejoin in BFB 11.

Official Character Guide biography

Pencil is a typical No. 2 pencil with a graphite tip. You probably have one in your backpack! Pencil is a born leader, but she can be very demanding.

Pencil uses Lightning to shock anyone who annoys her, especially Flower, Fanny and Spongy. Pencil is an expert at staring contests, even managing to out-stare the legendary David himself.

Did You Know?: Pencil won Total Firey Island, a BFDI-esque comic strip that came before BFDI, making her the first winner of all-time.


  • Blinking resistance: Pencil can keep her eyes open without blinking for a very long time (longer than a day) and does not seem to experience any pain from this, as seen in "Reveal Novum".



Battle for Dream Island

In "Take the Plunge: Part 1", Pencil is first seen with Match, talking about Flower's fear of bugs. Both of them yell when Ice Cube accidentally pops Bubble while hugging her. During the challenge, Bubble, Pencil, and Match all make an alliance. Ice Cube, eager to join, asks them if she could join, just before Pencil is knocked off the beam with new alliance members, Bubble and Match. Pencil angrily refuses to let Ice Cube in the alliance.

In "Take the Plunge: Part 2", Ice Cube complains about Pencil not letting her join Pencil's alliance when Leafy chooses her for Leafy's team, because of this, Pinn chooses Pencil to be on her team. And when Pin has trouble deciding who to choose next, Pencil whispers for her to choose Bubble, which Pin does. Then, Pencil chooses Match next since she's in their alliance. Pencil babbles along with everyone else about the team name, making the Speaker choose the teams, dubbing Pencil's team the Squishy Cherries.

During the process of the boat being made, Pin makes Pen, Match, and Pencil be oars, and Pen is shown to be happy about this, while Pencil only shows a look of annoyance. Pencil goes through the hole in the boat, making Firey command her to stay there as a plug. She looks worried when Ice Cube, Leafy, and Coiny are about to crash into their boat, screaming along with the rest of her team. When the boat breaks, Pencil tries to encourage Match to swim with her, but she claims she has no energy left, making Pencil swim to the finish line without her. Pencil's team wins, making her immune from elimination.

Pencil, Match and Bubble begin the obstacle course after Pencil helps finding Blocky

In "Barriers and Pitfalls", Pencil was sent by Pin to find Blocky, although she wanted to stay with her alliance. Once Pencil found the fish that supposedly ate Blocky, she tried doing a dance to make it open its mouth, although the fish then tries eating her. After being freed from the fish, Pencil and her alliance went as fast as possible and did not help the opposing team. When Pencil tries jumping through the falling obstacle, she gets dulled. She falls along with the alliance when Rocky breaks the ski lift.

In "Are You Smarter Than a Snowball?", she does not take the test (drawing an infinite doodle instead). When Match plays around with her mini-Match while playing Spongy Cake, brushing it against Pencil's pencil, their tests were caught on fire, so they did not turn them in (resulting in no score). Pencil comes to the conclusion that Bubble is dumb when she can't count to 3, even though Bubble just died before getting to 3. She also suggests ripping Bubble's test since they figure she'd be too dumb to pass.

In "Sweet Tooth", she randomly turns into Bubble in front of Match during Cake at Stake. She talks to Match about Bubble being "dumb", however, Pencil realizes Bubble is not "dumb" later in the episode after seeing Bubble count to 8. Pencil uses one of Leafy's cakes for the challenge and gets a low score of 13 tying with Bubble and Snowball for the second lowest score behind Golf Ball's 0.

In "Bridge Crossing", she first faints when the Announcer says he had to use an ice cake for the second time due to not having a regular cake, and Pin says she's overreacting, but it turns out the Announcer was kidding and he actually got an ice cream cake. When Needle lands back to earth, Match is grossed out at the sight of her, making Pencil state she liked "Needies", but is slapped by Needle for saying so. When the Announcer gives her cake, she gets it smacked in her face, calling it unfair. She's later seen jumping along with Match off the cliff to catch Bubble after she falls off the broken bridge.

In "Power of Three", she says she doesn't like Cake at Stake only to claim she likes it when threatened with immediate elimination. She's placed on the same team as her alliance in the challenge. During the contest, Match accidentally locks Pencil in a safe and she and Bubble forget about her for a while until they nearly get to the next island. They place third and are safe from elimination.

In "Puzzling Mysteries", when the TLC fails to close completely, Pencil tells the Announcer that the carrying capacity is 6 and that there are 6 people inside, along with Spongy. Match and Pencil have a hard time finishing the jigsaw puzzle since the pieces are upside down and instead talk about the time when Eraser stepped on a nail in BFDI 1B. Her team loses the contest and is still trapped in the room by night.

Pencil being carried by Pen in the relay race

In "Cycle of Life", Match and Pencil talk about their votes so far. In the relay race, Pencil has to carry Match, who she claims is gaining weight. When it's her turn, Match asks Pencil if she's fat, and Pencil says she was "JK kidding". They lose the challenge due to Bubble popping.

In "Insectophobe's Nightmare", Match and Pencil notice Ice Cube falling from a cliff before getting knocked down themselves when she gets recovered. Pencil and her team finally win a challenge by being first in the six-legged race.

In "Crybaby!", she was the only member of her alliance to choose Snowball on the team along with Pen and Eraser, due to him winning more contests (albeit only because he was the only one who ripped the ties on the literal tie breakers). Match and Bubble were not very happy. Pencil has a hard time crying in the crying challenge. After tying in the skiing contest, her team finally wins in the handstand tiebreaker, but Eraser ends up winning the Win Token due to Rocky barfing while they were handstanding.

In "Lofty", a few clones of Pencil can be seen laughing at Another Name as they walk to the Cake at Stake area. Pencil just votes for Rocky to stay since the entire team already picked him unanimously. She loses the balloon contest when Snowball, her own teammate, pops her balloon for its pink color.

In "A Leg Up in the Race", many clones of Pencil can be seen laughing at Another Name as they walk to Cake at Stake. Pencil places 7th in the ladder challenge. She is the only one who doesn't lose any points since she never got a vote and is safe from elimination after the points are established.

In "Don't Lose Your Marbles", Pencil is first seen getting angry with Snowball for popping Bubble. Pencil and her alliance talk about how great it is for them all to be in the final 11. In the challenge, she is the first to turn in a ball, giving her 30 points. This makes her the second highest in points, behind Pen.

In "Half a Loaf Is Better Than None", Pencil tries to get Match out of a cliff and calls Bubble to help her, before she and everyone else ends up falling. She is upset when Match is eliminated and accepts Ice Cube as an alliance member out of desperation. Pencil cheers for Match to rejoin in the bread loaf contest and is disgusted when Spongy ends up winning. She is seen trying to retrieve marbles from the acid vat and dies. In the challenge, Pencil tries to use "alliance power" to jump over a variable height hurdle but ultimately fails when the hurdle hits her tip.

In "Vomitaco", Pencil plays catch with Bubble and Ice Cube. She later calls Ice Cube "garbage" compared to Match, as she didn't find it fun playing without her. Pencil chooses the barf bag contest along with her alliance. She gets angry with Rocky when he pukes in the giant bag that actually had colored water and throws a bowling ball at him. She then covers a leak in the bag with a pillow and throws barf on Blocky. She decides to make ice cream with Bubble using Ice Cube as the ice. Bubble finds it disgusting and Pencil throws Ice Cube in the barf. Pencil is the last contestant on the barf bag. The hole she plugged takes her out and she falls after standing for a whole minute, giving her 60 points. She is later glad about not choosing the taco contest, to which Bubble asks why, but Pencil pops her due to not wanting to answer "stupid" questions. She then is seen telling Firey to hurry up with his taco as he has some trouble making it.

Pencil on the puppet segment

In "Bowling, Now with Explosions!", Pencil is one of the various puppets used for the beginning of the episode. Leafy questions what she's doing and she says she's looking at clouds. Leafy says she looks bored and suggests they do something fun like jumping off a cliff, which Pencil takes literally. They decide instead to watch clouds with Pen instead. They later get real life objects of their counterparts and stab themselves in the middle. They all celebrate when Blocky removes their counterparts and they return to normal. She mentions how it is great to be puppets, before they become animated again, resulting as an April Fools' prank. At Cake at Stake, she is the first person to receive an explosive pie. Pencil later mentions how it's wonderful to be in the final nine. During the bowling ball contest, Pencil makes the final throw, launching the ball to smash Ice Cube and hit 5 pins in the center. While subtracting points, she decides to take away 25 points off everyone except her alliance and herself. Blocky and Firey take away 56 and 30 points respectively from her for subtracting their scores, while Leafy took away 10 points off her and everyone else for equality. Pencil is up for elimination along with everyone else, except Firey for knocking down a strike, for the first time since "Bridge Crossing".

In "The Reveal", Pencil demands springy shoes from Leafy after she gave some to Bubble. Leafy takes Bubble's springy shoes from her so Pencil can have them, but Bubble later gets them back. At Cake at Stake, Pencil's no vote streak was broken (even her first voter, englishcreamcakes, got mentioned) but she is still safe with 38 votes. Pencil and Bubble do very well in the frisbee-throwing contest and both get 200 points for getting first place.

In "Reveal Novum", Pencil votes for Tennis Ball to be eliminated, despite saying he was very fuzzy. In the challenge, Pencil comes first in the staring contest beating Spongy, Rocky, and David (who took an entire day to blink). At one point while staring against David, she calls out Bubble, asking what's been with her lately, when she simply asked if her eyes hurt. Despite winning the contest, due to the scoreboard only holding 2 digit numbers, she still gets into the danger zone.

In "Rescission", Firey shows Pencil his emergency button and tests it on Bubble, causing her to disappear, making Pencil mad as she thought it was the cruelest way she ever died. She then takes the emergency button and uses it on Firey, Leafy, and all the recommended characters in the episode. Spongy then tumbles onto her, and Rocky is about to barf into her, causing her to worry until Rocky speaks. She asks him if it feels weird to talk after 15 months of silence but Rocky went back to barfing on her afterwards. At Cake at Stake, the Announcer reminds Pencil how she never got a single vote until "Bowling, Now with Explosions!", and then says that for this episode, she got 259, the most ever at that point, causing her to be eliminated. Pencil, mad at this, slams the Announcer thinking that it must've been broken, before she's sent by the Laser Powered Teleportation Device. The Announcer then mentions how Pencil was always a menace anyway. Bubble worries about what they can do without her and Match, and Ice Cube suggest that Needle joins in, but gets slapped because she called her "Needy".

Pencil's audition to rejoin BFDI

In "Gardening Hero", Pencil gets a chance to rejoin the game. In her audition, she uses her chanting to get the viewers to vote for her.

In "The Glistening", When Blocky votes for Firey to "put up with the fire", Pencil makes a weird exaggerated laugh. She decides to vote for Ice Cube, along with 9 other eliminated contestants. She only got 60 votes to rejoin and is teleported back into the TLC.

In "Insectophobe's Nightmare 2", Pencil is first seen in the TLC where she says that she can't wait to be freed since BFDI was confirmed to be "cancelled". She and the other members are then "eaten" by the bugs, but it later turns out that everyone just faked their deaths. When the TLC disappears due to Flower deflecting the Laser Powered Teleportation Device, everyone, including Pencil celebrates, until the TLC teleports back into it's spot.

In "The Return of the Hang Glider", after being released from the TLC, she tries to vote for Bubble to win but instead votes for Leafy in fear of being slapped. She, Match, and Bubble are all let into Dream Island first by Firey. Pencil is shocked to hear that Dream Island was stolen but doesn't seem to mind as she tells Pen to get over it. Pencil then calls out Firey for not letting Leafy into Dream Island. Later, she is glad when a spike lands in Rocky's mouth so that he can't barf and announces the news to everyone else. After learning that Leafy stole Dream Island, Pencil finds Flower's Announcer Crusher to use to give Leafy the death penalty. After the credits, she asks Match if it would be weird if the first and last spoken words of BFDI were the same.

Battle for Dream Island Again

Pencil showing Pen her Leafy-detector

In "Yeah, Who? I Wanna Know", Pencil gets 320 votes and gets into the 2nd season. In the beginning, following the events of the previous episode, she is one of the various contestants chasing down Leafy who stole Dream Island. When Golf Ball questions Pen on how they should get her in the forest, Pencil tells them about the Leafy detector she owns and uses it to slow down Leafy until they catch up to her. Later while deciding on teams she has an argument with Donut over the size of the teams and has a vertical rectangle as a favorite screen.

In "Get Digging", Pencil decides to kick Ice Cube out of her alliance because she made a weird face expression. She is assigned to add the ingredients to the team's Yoyle Stew along with Ruby and Match, which they do a terrible job on, since they get a lot of poisonous, venomous, and deadly substances. In the process, Pencil invites Ruby into her alliance and plans on reviving Bubble, but Ruby declines stating that it would be dangerous and not worth it for "someone who can't count to three".

In "Insectophobe's Nightmare 3", Pencil's alliance does not participate in the contest since they decided to excuse themselves. Pencil has a conference with Ruby, Pencil decides to finally revive Bubble, considering herself self-taught and explains to her why Ruby should be in the alliance, stating that it wouldn't hurt having four members. She assigns Book and Ice Cube as alternates to her alliance when they question her, to which Book only replies angrily, "Fine!".

Pencil being sent to Golf Ball's incinerator by Tennis Ball

In "Zeeky Boogy Doog", Pencil saves Gelatin's life. She later scolds Ruby for reviving Flower, threatening to expel her from the alliance, but later turning out to be kidding. At the challenge, she practices freedom of speech from Golf Ball which gets her dragged into the incinerator by Tennis Ball.

In "Get in the Van", Pencil saves Match from being eliminated using the elimination prevention plan by tying her on the stage used for Cake at Stake. She forms a new team with her entire alliance, calling it FreeSmart, due to not wanting to use the word of freedom, because it sounded like saying they were dumb, and drives the FreeSmart Van bringing the HPRC and later accidentally driving into Evil Leafy and Tennis Ball, Golf Ball and Rocky.

In "BFDIA 5b", Pencil is not a playable character but is coded into the game. She plays similarly to Match since their sizes are mostly the same.

In "No More Snow!", Pencil asks Ruby to press a button on top of Evil Leafy, which they have a hard time doing so due to Ruby accidentally pushing other buttons and crying when Pencil shouts at her, which then zaps her, killing her. She wasn't recovered yet due to the HPRC being crushed by W.O.A.H. Bunch.

In "It's a Monster", Pencil gets revived by Match and drives the new FreeSmart Supervan. Pencil mentions how they don't need the HPRC due to already having a Leg-Powered Recovery Center, and Book questions what would happen if she used her hands, to which Pencil mentions "she'd be very sorry". Book uses it with her hands nonetheless, and the LPRRC disappears, leading to Pencil shout why did she did it. She then decides to steal the HPRC with the magnet in the van. While they go across the Goiky Canal, she along with the rest of FreeSmart drown and revive each other numerous times.

Pencil being sawed in half by FreeSmart in order to win the contest

In "The Long-lost Yoyle City", Pencil finally drives out of the Goiky Canal. She gets sawed due to a fish monster getting her stuck with it's tongue. She delays Team No-Name from reaching the summit by freezing them and kicking Rocky into the jaws of the fish monster, as payback for him barfing on her two years ago. FreeSmart ends up winning the challenge, reaching 1st place, although in the process Match is sent to the LOL and TLC when the Firey Speaker Box sees her. Firey Speaker Box then interrogates Bubble, who pretends to be a tree. Pencil tries to help her sound more convincing as a tree, but Bubble is ultimately flung somewhere unknown. Later, W.O.A.H. Bunch makes it to the summit as well. Pin celebrates over their victory, but Pencil reminds her that they only placed second. Pencil is last seen falling from the summit with everyone else.


In "Welcome Back", Pencil is preparing to eat her gumdrops but realizes that Ruby forgot to remove the Lens Cap from the camera. Shortly after, she realizes that all the video diaries are black screens and assumes viewers do not know who was eliminated in BFDIA 6. When Ruby pulls out the BFDIA 6 results, Pencil demands them but ends up falling down the Yoyle Needy.

Book saves her life, and the two walk to recover Ice Cube, Ruby, and Bubble. They talk about Match, but Pencil complains about Match being too needy. She licks in order to recover Ice Cube.

Battle for BFDI

In "Getting Teardrop to Talk", she reunites with her alliance from previous seasons. She proved to be meaner than usual, as she demoted Bubble from a member of the alliance to a bember. She also used Lightning to zap other contestants. She formed a team called iance, with her alliance, sparing Book and Ice Cube, who found the alliance unhealthy and joined Gaty's team, which is Bleh. The team also consisted of Snowball, Fanny, Flower, and Lightning. In the first contest, she jumps and hopes to reach the basket hundreds of feet in the air. She also made Bubble cry by zapping Fanny with Lightning. These behaviors made her disliked. When her team lost the first challenge, she was voted out with 4,595 votes, the first off the show. She placed 64th (later 65th place after The Hidden Contestant).

Pencil is mistakenly present on the Swings in "Why Would You Do This on a Swingset" when Fanny was being used to propel the swings. Her eraser can be seen above Lightning.

Pencil and Liy inside the EXIT

Pencil is not seen throughout the series after her elimination until "Enter the Exit". She appears in the EXIT along with Leafy, Bracelety, and Liy. She complaining about males in "an all-girl classroom" and the class in general. She was given a chance to rejoin the battle, but she failed to rejoin in "Get to the Top in 500 Steps" with only 3712 votes. She appears again in BFB 15 in Ice Cube's happy thought, where she is burned.

In "The Escape From Four", Pencil was first listening to Loser reading Donut's Diary out loud, and suggests that he should lower down his voice because they can hear him. When 8-Ball said he can't hear Pencil, she grabs a stethoscope and said she wanted to listen to the "celebrity's juiciest secrets", thinking Loser was reading his own diary. Match shortly after wanted to hear too and grabs one of the parts of the stethoscope to hear him. After listening to the journal entries stated by Loser, she and Match were shocked and Match asked her when did Loser combine with Four, and replied she doesn't know, but screamed Donut's name as Loser said it was his last entry.

Pencil later appeared looking at Stapy who was struggling to pile up some things, and Pencil suggested that Loser should climb instead because he's smaller, and the plan worked. However, when Liy was asked to throw more things, she claimed that there's nothing else to throw, and came up with the idea to use Match and Pencil to lift Loser up since they're the tallest. Pencil replies with a bored sigh, but when she heard that they would get demoted to "bember", she climbed up immediately, not wanting to be demoted. When Spongy was halfway sucked into Four's body, Pencil realizes Spongy just got eliminated, which grosses her out. When she heard that they should climb on him, Pencil disagrees and tells Liy she can't do that. She then says she's bailing and jumps off as Match follows, leaving Loser on his own.

In "X Marks the Spot", Ruby reveals that Pencil gave her the FreeSmart Supervan to look after before she got eliminated.

In "SOS (Save Our Show)", Pencil appears in a couple of flashbacks that weren't ever shown before. The first being a moment where she and Match talk to Eraser while the Announcer watches from the side. The second is when the Announcer appears at the top of the summit of Yoyle Mountain. Pencil asks what he's doing back, and the Announcer manages to avoid getting caught by pretending to be a tree.

In "Chapter Complete", Pencil and Bracelety appear as Four's finalists. She says that she has less appreciation for Ice Cube compared to Bracelety, but is sure that Four is better than her. She then tells some of the other contestants to chant Four's name. Suddenly, voices can be heard talking about Four coming back. Pencil asks if he left and where to. Later, Pencil is revealed to be the winner of Four's made up show and is given what looks like a glitched scribble as prize. When Four starts to realize that none of this is real, Pencil sarcastically compliments him for figuring that out and slow claps. Four then snaps his fingers, making Pencil and the other imaginary character disappear.

Battle for Dream Island: The Power of Two

In "You Know Those Buttons Don't Do Anything, Right?", Pencil follows Liy and Stapy as they run back into the EXIT, asking what they're doing. Liy explains that she didn't get to look behind the door before Four caught her and boarded it up and that she will definitely see what's behind it this time. Pencil then watches as she pulls out a staple and uses it to unlock the door.
