|“||Our team has now prevented 0.00 deaths.||”|
— Remote, "Why Would You Do This on a Swingset"
Remote is a female contestant on Battle for BFDI. She was one of the 30 recommended characters in "The Reveal" and "Reveal Novum". Along with Pie and Grassy, Pie only received 7 votes, which in turn placed them at 16th and she was sent into the Locker of Losers.
Remote's BFDI design appears to be a gray rectangle with 19 buttons, one red and one blue, with a center button with side controls, and no white facial features.
Remote's IDFB redesign features a black body, white eyes, a hexagonal shape, and fewer buttons.
Remote works as somewhat of a correspondent for Death P.A.C.T., often stating what's going on with them, even reporting in one incident that "our team has now prevented 0.00 deaths.", hinting that she wants to prevent death. She's generally peaceful and well-meaning. She also seems to be very considerate, as she showed concern when Liy was being circled by forks in "Today's Very Special Episode".
Remote is also competitive. She aims to win the challenges and can be frustrated when her teammates don't follow or agree with her ambition. Despite this, she is willing to learn to prioritize preventing death even if it goes against her innate desire.
Official Character Guide biography
Remote can send and receive infrared signals. She loves batteries, because without them, she would faint. She has a robotic voice, although she definitely has feelings. One of those feelings is to be a person and not a tool. Regardless, she's willing to help as a data-storage tool for Liy to track her death prevention rate.
Did You Know?: Remote gets the best wireless signal out of everybody, which is both helpful and dangerous.
(Note: There is some Morse code by Roboty on this page reading "BATTERIES".)

Battle for Dream Island
In "Don't Lose Your Marbles", Remote made her first appearance, being held by Blocky. Blocky got hit by a ball thrown by Leafy, causing him to drop Remote. Her batteries fell out, and the acid killed Snowball and Pencil.
In "The Reveal", Remote was a character that could have joined the game. In the campaign video, Remote pulled out her own batteries and she fell unconscious.
In "Reveal Novum", Remote placed 18th place, with only 7 votes together with Grassy and Pie. The 3 contestants were sent flying into the LOL along with the rest of the 26 other recommended characters.
Battle for Dream Island Again
Battle for BFDI
In "Today's Very Special Episode", Remote shows concern on the forks strangely circling around Liy. This then results in Liy's gravitation pulling Gelatin's forks away from the pile and are heading towards Four. Remote, along with half of her team, jump into the forks in order to protect Four. To get Black Hole's attention, Pillow persuades Remote and the others to go and inform Black Hole of the situation, which they end up doing. Unfortunately, Death P.A.C.T. lost the challenge and will be up for elimination.
In "Fortunate Ben", during Cake at Stake, Four announces that Remote is safe with 1370 votes and gets a fortune cookie as a prize. Remote's fortune reads out "Ice Cube is the best thing to ever grace this universe". She then replies that it's not true and that batteries are really the best.
In "The Liar Ball You Don't Want", A Better Name Than That decides to control her so they can do the challenge like the other teams. Remote struggles against the signal, but fails. Then, they temporarily lose control of her, so she can type on her buttons "PANIC" and send a bomb into the signal. But when Robot Flower breaks the signal, the bomb is planted into Remote instead and explodes.
When Remote got recovered in "Enter the Exit", Robot Flower pointed out about the bomb she made, then her teammates starts asking why she would do that, Remote replies for winning, but Black Hole told Remote their team is about saving lives, not winning.
In "Get to the Top in 500 Steps", Remote gets worried seeing Pie's lack of urgency to get to the top before Flower. Black Hole says she was preventing her own death since Flower would kill her if she gets ahead of her. Remote then angrily says that they'll lose, to the reply of Black Hole stating she was a slow learner. Luckily for Remote, Pie falls off, and Black Hole swirls her up to the top so she can press the button, meaning their team is safe.
In "Return of the Rocket Ship", Remote follows her team, Death P.A.C.T., towards the Evil Canyon to look for X's treasure. Black Hole immediately stops them, telling them that going to the Evil Canyon would be very dangerous, and that they should care about Pillow's death. The rest of Death P.A.C.T., alongside Remote, start arm wiggling, much to Black Hole's dismay. However, Pie suddenly stops and tells everyone else that they should be caring about Pillow, but Remote keeps arm wiggling and is seen to be glitching and doesn't stop after Black Hole tells her to.
In "Don't Dig Straight Down", Remote reaches her arms out of Four's mouth to grab an emerald.
In "The Four is Lava", Remote, Bottle, and Pen have fun sticking their arms out of Four's mouth and have Black Hole repeatedly swing them back up to it every time they are pushed off. Doing this too many times makes Four put his hand in his mouth, pushing Pen, Bottle, and Remote off, and throwing the entire team out of his mouth, which also makes Death P.A.C.T. safe from elimination.
