Sorry mommy, did I do a no-no again?
— Ruby, Take the Tower

Ruby is a female contestant in Battle for Dream Island Again, IDFB, and Battle for BFDI.

She was also one of the 30 recommended characters that could have joined Battle for Dream Island, she placed 5th with only 22 votes. She did however get enough votes to join BFDIA. She competed on Team No-Name before switching to FreeSmart later. She lasted long enough to be outside of the TLC in IDFB. Ruby has 35 sisters that are seen in the ABCDEFG video on Carykh.

Ruby competed in BFB on iance and the Have Cots, until she became the 16th contestant eliminated in "A Taste of Space".


Ruby has a round brilliant gemstone cut. She is not translucent nor refractive. In BFDIA, Ruby has less contrast than in "Reveal Novum". In IDFB and BFB, she is a bit darker-colored.



  • Ruby's body has a very small tinge of orange in it and is darker in color.


  • Ruby is lighter.
  • Ruby's face is lower.
  • Ruby's arms are lower.

BFDIA onward

  • Ruby is darker-colored.
  • Certain parts of Ruby's shine are slightly tinted pink.


Ruby is a bubbly and curious contestant. She enjoys playing around with other contestants, notably Bubble and Flower. She has been shown to look up to characters with leadership roles such as Match and Pencil, although she can display these traits on her own quite well, as seen in BFB 13 and 14.

In "Reveal Novum", Ruby was desperate and fast-talking as seen in her audition tape, as fast as she could, she asked the viewers "PLEASE? Please. Can I join the game? Please Please." which only gave her 22 votes, not enough to join.

She's shown to be sensitive as seen in BFDIA 5c, as she starts crying after Pencil yells at her. She's also shown to be a bit dim-witted in Welcome Back, as she stupidly jumps down the spiral staircase of the Yoyle Needy to get to the bottom, only to shatter into pieces.

In BFB, however, Ruby's personality somewhat changes. She's now quite more passive than before. For example, in "Why Would You Do This on a Swingset", she watches Flower get zapped by Lightning with almost no concern, despite seemingly having a friendship with Flower. Ruby also displays a more critical side, as she became judgmental of Flower's physique in "Fortunate Ben". She also showed her vengeful side in "What Do You Think of Roleplay?" when she unfolds Foldy for causing iance's loss.

Despite this, in "Return of the Rocket Ship" and "Don't Dig Straight Down", she seems to act more of a leader as they tunnel under the ground. Ruby gets the entire team to dig and also leads them away from Golf Ball in BFB 13 and 14 respectively. It is unknown what caused this and what effect it will have during future challenges if any.

Official Character Guide biography

When we first met Ruby, she is sweet and sensitive, an absolute gem of a person. Get it? Gem? LOL. Despite her brilliance, others may see Ruby as an irresponsible scatterbrain. She acts before she thinks, which often leads to mistakes.

Ruby's fans are just as enthusiastic as she is, saying her name hundreds of times in each vote.

Did You Know?: Ruby eats more sugar in a day than the others do in a month, combined.



Battle for Dream Island

In "Reveal Novum", Ruby's desperate pleads to join the game only gave her 22 votes, placing in the 5th place, losing to Nickel, Bomby, David, and Evil Leafy.

However, if jacknjellify allowed people to vote more than once, Ruby would've won with 206 votes, but this was not the case and so she got sent to the Locker of Losers.

Battle for Dream Island Again

In "Yeah, Who? I Wanna Know", Ruby received enough votes (381) to join BFDIA. When Puffball suggested that someone switch teams, Ruby is about to make a choice, but Donut talks over her and says that they want Match on their team, which upsets Pencil.

In "Get Digging", when W.O.A.H Bunch were on their way to Cake at Stake, Ruby was seen laughing at them along with other members of Team No-Name. When Team No-Name was making yoylestew, Golf Ball ordered Ruby to get ingredients. While making yoylestew, Match and Pencil ask Ruby to join their alliance. Ruby asks about Bubble, but she's dead. She then asks about Ice Cube and Match tells her she made an ugly face, which they didn't like. So Ruby decides to join. When Match and Pencil want Bubble back, Ruby tells them not to waste their time bringing her back.

In "Insectophobe's Nightmare 3", Ruby's team, Team No-Name, was up for elimination. Ruby received 183 likes (placing 12th) and received 158 dislikes. In the contest, Golf Ball asked Ruby, Pencil, and Match why weren't doing the challenge. Match replied that they were excusing themselves from the contest. While the other contestants were doing the contest, Ruby confesses that she was acting weird because she was afraid that if Bubble rejoined the alliance that she would be kicked out. Match reassured her before quickly reviving Bubble. Bubble then gets angry and confused about Ruby, stating that she's not in their alliance, leaving Ruby upset. Match then tells Bubble that Ruby is also in the alliance now, which Bubble acknowledges by giving Ruby an "apology slap."

In "Zeeky Boogy Doog", Ruby calls Match nice after she saves Firey's life, afterward she is killed because of Pin still shaking the Eiffel Tower. Later, Ruby brings Flower back when everyone is reviving someone, she is soon scolded by Gelatin, with Pencil and Match both threatening to kick her out of the alliance, saddening Ruby, until they reveal they were joking.

In "Get in the Van", Ruby is seen partying with the other alliance members in the Clubhouse of Awesomeness. During Cake At Stake, she receives a piece of Donut as a prize and eats it. She says Donut's filling tastes good. Later, when Golf Ball wants all the members of Team No-Name to promise never to leave, Ruby and the rest of the Alliance don't promise and leave to make a new team. Ruby suggests they call their new team "Poopy mayonnaise". They decide on the name "Freesmart", and Ruby cheers with the rest of the team. Ruby then spins the challenge wheel. It lands on "Reach the summit of Yoyle Mountain", and she and asks her team what their plan is. Pencil tells them to get in the van, which Ruby does. Later, while in the van, she asks where all the peanuts went. Pencil accuses her of eating them all, which Ruby denies. As they drive into a snowy area, Ruby makes a snowball and throws it at Book, starting a snowball fight. They approach the edge of Evil Canyon, and Ruby jumps with the rest of Freesmart to try and get across, only to be eaten by Evil Leafy on the other side.

In "No More Snow!", Ruby and the rest of FreeSmart are trapped on top of Evil Leafy. She accidentally pops Bubble while jumping and asks Pencil if she presses the button. Pencil scolds at her making her cry. Pencil apologizes to Ruby and she stops crying. Ruby presses the green button and blows away Ice Cube and Match. Pencil scolds at her again asking if she did it in Gem School. Ruby says no because (as Book informed her) Gem School is only for diamonds.

Ruby presses the yellow button that appeared out of nowhere and trapped the team in a cage. Pencil told Ruby to press the red button; when she pressed it, Pencil was zapped by electricity and killed.

Book tells her to press the mysterious purple button, which zaps the two out of Evil Leafy and back to normal size. They tried sneaking away, but Evil Leafy notices, and starts chasing the two. They climbed a tree and then cut the wire (rope) holding a 9,042kg block hanging on it. Puffball and Fries tried saving them but got crushed by the 9,042kg block along with Evil Leafy. Ruby wants to recover her dead team members, but the HPRC was inside Evil Leafy and was crushed, making Ruby die in sadness (allegedly). The W.O.A.H. Bunch catches up and helps them crank the HPHPRCC.

In "It's a Monster", she is first seen cranking while saying to Book that she did not die from sadness as Book had thought. The next day, Ruby is seen playing a different variation of Spongy Cake, being the second overall to do so. Ruby also is nervous upon realizing the HPHPRCC is going to explode, she even hallucinates it exploding, letting out a scream in the process. Book calms her down, pointing out the HPHPRCC simply disappeared without a trace.

When all the team members have been recovered, FreeSmart embarked on the journey to Yoyle Mountain, Ruby asks Pencil if she is sad about the recent loss of the FreeSmart Van, to which Pencil unveils the FreeSmart Supervan.

When Book realizes that they did not bring the HPRC with them, Ruby suggests they steal, agreeing with Pencil. Later, she reveals that she saved snowballs in the mini-fridge and starts a snowball fight. At the end of the episode, the van is going through the Goiky Canal, and Ruby sometimes revives team members who can't hold their breath or needs to be revived.

In "The Long-lost Yoyle City", Ruby gets Yoyleberries and gives some to Bubble, not hearing Book reminding them that they'll turn into metal.

Ruby carries out the HPRC when they are about to trek in Yoyle City but accidentally ends up putting it in glue, annoying Match and Pencil, even to the point where Pencil tells Ruby to stop making mistakes, to which she agrees. Ruby is later seen recovering the dead Pencil.

At the end of the episode, she asks how they will get down from the summit of Yoyle Mountain but moments later all of the contestants are seen plummeting towards the ground, screaming.

In the deleted scenes, Ruby asks FreeSmart and the W.O.A.H. Bunch while falling in metal if they want yoyleberries, but Pin rejects them because she already had 13. Then she asks Book, but she rejects them because she fed them to everybody. Ruby disagrees, but both FreeSmart and W.O.A.H. Bunch agree with that.


In "Welcome Back", Ruby is seen with the FreeSmarters on the Yoyle Needy. She welcomes everyone to day 1,147 of the FreeSmarters video diary where they eat the gumdrops collected over the years, however, Pencil realizes that Ruby never removed the lens cap. She doesn't know what a lens cap is but apologizes anyway. Bubble explains to Ruby that a lens cap is a circular cap needed to remove before recording. When Book realizes that Ruby may have been recording all the video diaries with the lens cap still on, Ruby makes the excuse that the world is a strange place and anything can happen. She gets shocked when she realizes all the video diaries are just a black screen.

When Ice Cube asks what happened on BFDIA 6, Ruby shows a chart that shows Puffball being eliminated with 1,455 dislikes. Pencil asks where she got that and tells her it's a secret and she'll never know. Ruby puts the results over the edge of the tower and teases Pencil to get it. Pencil ends up over and falls. Ruby tries to get down as quickly as possible by falling but instead shatters.

At the end of the episode, Book recovers Ruby by typing "ROOOOOBEEEEEEE!" instead of her actual name.

Battle for BFDI

In "Getting Teardrop to Talk", Ruby is seen with her alliance. She tells Bubble how cool it is to have a personal recovery center. Ruby cheers when she sees Loser. Ruby says Flower is beautiful much to the delight of Flower. Ruby asks Pencil if she is still a member after Bubble gets demoted. Pencil says yes, which makes her both relieved and very happy.

When forming teams, she joins the alliance with Pencil, Match, and Bubble. She also causes her team to merge with another team due to Flower. Ruby tells Pencil on how good of an observation she made while naming their team.

During the challenge, Ruby and her team jump to get the basket. Match asks Ruby if her eyes are open, Ruby says yes, but closes them after Match told her to close them. She thought she was close at one point, however, she wasn't anywhere near close and was up for elimination.

In "Why Would You Do This on a Swingset", and "Today's Very Special Episode", Ruby had no speaking roles. Her only actions in both episodes were standing on the team swingset, and cosplaying as Pencil, respectively.

In "Fortunate Ben", Ruby plays Spongy Cake with Match. Flower pulls her away, and Ruby gets slightly angry. Flower asks Ruby to convince her "ignorant friends" that she's pretty, however, Ruby did not like Flower's appearance at the time. When Flower curls up her arm, Ruby calls her beautiful. They also test out different factors.

In "The Liar Ball You Don't Want", Ruby plays with the broken jawbreaker and shoves a piece onto Fries' face.

In "Enter the Exit", Ruby realizes that Four has the prize, which makes everyone want to bring Four back more.

In "Get to the Top in 500 Steps", Ruby and most of the rest of the team accept that Flower is the one running up the stairs. She then gasps when she sees Flower pull out her Non-Slip Shoes So Ha. Despite her efforts, Flower isn't able to press the button before anyone else, so iance is up for elimination.

In “What Do You Think of Roleplay?", Ruby unfolds Foldy, for messing with her team. When it was time for Cake at Stake, Ruby and the other members were seated near Gelatin's Steakhouse. Ruby was safe with 1124 votes. Ruby was about to get zapped by Four disguised as X when she flung pickles at him. She was "forgiven" by Bubble for trying to replace her. Later in the challenge, Ruby and Flower conclude that Snowball and Bubble are both real due to their behavior. She wasn't seen again until the end of the episode where Eraser hallucinates Ruby morphing into a pentagon.

In "Return of the Rocket Ship" Ruby attempts to dig for X's treasure with her teeth, only for Bubble to point out it would be faster to use a shovel. Ruby agrees with Bubble and gets shovels for iance so they can start digging, getting into a few conflicts in the process. Later while digging Ruby gets iance to dig a side pit to blow team Beep into so they don't land on Team Ice Cube! and Bubble.

In "Don't Dig Straight Down" Ruby blames Flower for killing Bubble. After Flower says Ruby was about to impale 2 whole teams, Ruby says Bubble's life is special and that Flower lost her flower power. When Lightning asks Snowball if they should be following the coordinates Grassy gave them, Ruby tells Lightning the coordinates. Flower says the emerald is up and Ruby digs upwards, not even noticing her team. Ruby gets woozy later and Snowball calls her a weakling. Later, Ruby senses Golf Ball's presence and agrees with Fanny. Ruby later smells the fresh air and Golf Ball upwards and turns around. She and her team later escape the hole and Snowball gives her a hi-five, but she dies from the magma anyway.

In "The Escape from Four", Ruby is transfixed by Loser when he rejoins. She later considers switching to TPOT but is convinced to stay on BFB by Four offering A BFB as a prize, making her one of the fourteen contestants to continue competing on BFB. She, along with Four and her thirteen opponents, are transported by Two to an unknown area to compete.

In "X Marks the Spot", Ruby is placed on the Four Colored Team, which confuses her as Blocky is on the opposite team despite them both being red. In the contest, Ruby pulls out a chest containing the FreeSmart Supervan and drives it to were X is. Her team ends up losing the contest when she has to turn around to pick up Teardrop. The lasso holding X snaps as she turns the van around, causing him to land by the X Colored Team.

In "Take the Tower", Ruby is up for elimination with the rest of her teammates. She survives, but just barely with 4,644 votes. During the challenge, Ruby and her teammates decide on how to get into the other team's tower. Ruby helps out her team by supplying the Flower petals that she bought while they went shopping. She also attempts to throw a rock at the other team's tower, but it falls down a cliff. She later fights with Taco on the extended bracelet. She manages to smack Taco off but then falls herself. In the stinger, she picks up Lollipop, Leafy, and Woody in the FreeSmart SuperVan, and sings, annoying Lollipop.

In "How Loe Can You Grow?", Ruby and Leafy won't stop singing which annoys Lollipop, until the radio randomly gets fixed. Lollipop enthusiastically suggests listening to real music, which Ruby reluctantly decides to do. After having the van stopped by Four, Ruby tells Lollipop how they got home hours ago, but kept driving cause she wanted more time to sing with Leafy. In the challenge, Ruby alters the sun's rays to X's garden, which turns her into a lens, making the aloe vera grow, giving her team 1 point. Ruby then burns an aloe vera plant, taking away two points from her team. Ruby was later shocked by Woody's death. Ruby asks where her team's spaceship came from, noticing it's made out of cardboard. Her team was up for elimination since the Have Nots spaceship caused the aloe vera to grow taller then Four.

In "A Taste of Space", Ruby is eliminated with 7,573 votes, getting beat by Gelatin by 96 votes. Ruby begs Four to let her stay in the game, to which Four declines and sends her to BRB. Ruby can be seen on The Sun as an animation error after her elimination. In the stinger, she, Balloony, and Spongy all scream in BRB.

In "Let's Raid the Warehouse", Ruby can be heard along with Balloony, Spongy, and Loser in the BRB.

In "Who Stole Donut's Diary?" and "Fashion For Your Face!", Ruby can be seen in the BRB.
