In BFDI he competed on the Squishy Cherries and was eliminated in "Are You Smarter Than a Snowball?" with 4 votes. After successfully beating all of the other eliminated contestants in a bread loaf contest in "Half a Loaf Is Better Than None" with 38 loaves of bread, he rejoined the game. He was eliminated once again in "Hurtful!" with 432 votes.
He was eliminated in "The Escape From Four" but rejoined in the same episode, due to Four's struggle to get Spongy inside him. He was then re-eliminated in "How Loe Can You Grow?", becoming one of the few contestants in BFB to be eliminated two times.
Spongy is a large rectangular washing sponge, his main body is vivid gold, and his holes and outlines are dark yellow; he also has a lot of bumpy edges. In between BFDIA and IDFB, his shading becomes darker.
Spongy is not very well-received among the contestants. They typically have little regard for his wants and, more often than not, consider him a hindrance or dead-weight during challenges. Even his alleged friends, such as Barf Bag, seem to not actually know much about him.
Spongy himself is somewhat of a gentle giant; kind, caring, open, and emotional. He could be described as sensitive, as he has cried in "Get in the Van". However, he often prioritizes his own safety and well-being when offered a chance to hurt himself to benefit his team, as seen in "Don't Dig Straight Down", where Spongy refused to give up his seat so that his teammates could escape to safety.
Official Character Guide biography
Spongy is a yellow sponge who contains some measure of grease. Most people think Spongy is gross, and others are upset that he once squashed the Announcer. Despite these setbacks, Spongy is great at carrying bread. The amount of loaves he can carry is a baker's dozen! That's 13! Good job, Spongy! His best bud is Barf Bag.
Did You Know?: Spongy has been the reigning champion of airplane-sailing for three years in a row!

Battle for Dream Island
In "Take the Plunge: Part 1", Spongy is first shown when Firey and Coiny are fighting on top of him. Golf Ball angrily tells them to stop fighting, then tells Spongy to take a bath because he stinks, making him apologize to Golf Ball. When the contestants are battling for Dream Island, Spongy is the first to fall off the beam.
In "Take the Plunge: Part 2", Spongy is the third-to-last one picked for his team, with only Woody and Rocky surpassing him. Blocky accidentally picks him for the Squishy Cherries team via sarcasm, much to Match's dismay. In the challenge, when their boat begins to sink, Pin demands that they have to throw someone overboard, and everyone promptly throws Spongy overboard. In the end, everyone who didn't make it to the other end (Match, Tennis Ball, Golf Ball, Teardrop, Needle, Rocky, Woody, Firey, Snowball), end up floating on Spongy to the other end.
In "Barriers and Pitfalls", Spongy is elected as part of the rescue team to go and rescue Blocky. They find the fish that ate Blocky but they soon find out that Blocky didn't actually get eaten, but only after the fish tries to eat Pencil. Pen and Blocky eventually rescue her, and start the race. Spongy gets stuck at the rock wall, but Pencil, Match, and Bubble help him up while boycotting GB and TB due to being on different teams. Soon, they are on the chairlift, where Bubble comments on how fat Spongy is. Rocky then cuts the line, and they all fall down into the Failer's Waiting Room.
In "Are You Smarter Than a Snowball?", Spongy is rescued from the Failer's Waiting Room, along with everyone else that had fallen off of the obstacle course. At Cake at Stake, Spongy was eliminated with four votes. However, when he is flung into the TLC, he is weighed down and accidentally pops Bubble. He is later put into the TLC off-screen.
In "Puzzling Mysteries", Spongy is briefly mentioned when Pencil points out that the holding capacity for the Tiny Loser Chamber is six, but due to Spongy's extreme fatness, he takes up more space than a normal person.
In "Cycle of Life", when it is revealed that someone will be rejoining the game, Spongy makes a brief cameo as one of the candidates to join the game. In his promo campaign, he fills up the whole screen and only says one word: "Hello".
In "Crybaby!", Spongy makes a brief cameo when the Squashy Grapes are falling down a seemingly bottomless cliff. After the ad for the Box of Paper Slips, Spongy is seen at the bottom of the pit. His squishy and trampoline-like texture sends them flying back up to the top before they are confronted by the Announcer.
In "Half a Loaf Is Better Than None", Spongy is given yet another chance to rejoin the game. The challenge is to bring as many loaves of bread as possible to your basket. Since Spongy is bigger than the others, he could carry twelve loaves of bread at a time, but he was quite slow at it. He briefly took the lead a couple of times, and at the last second, brings in a final load, and puts him in first place, so Spongy rejoins the game. He receives 38 points for all the loaves he collected, he is directly above the Danger Zone. Later, he jumps into the vat of acid to get the 15 bonus points. He fails, however, pushing him into the Danger Zone. However, the people without arms are given 10 sympathy points, making Spongy's total 48, and sending him out of the Danger Zone. The next challenge is to jump over hurdles on a conveyor belt. However, at the second hurdle, both Leafy and Spongy fall off because Leafy distracted him. He gets 10 points, and his total is 58, so he is not in the Danger Zone, and safe.
In "Vomitaco", Spongy has to choose between the taco challenge and the barf bag challenge. He ultimately goes with the taco challenge. He finds out that the eliminated contestants would be judging, and he gets 10 points for every like. Ultimately, Spongy gets 8 out of 10 likes for his taco, and 80 points, putting his total at 138, putting him in second place. He is spared from the Danger Zone and is safe.
In "Bowling, Now with Explosions!", Spongy is briefly seen as a puppet as a blue sponge (Blue Spongy, recommended by simondomino). When the puppet segment ends, he reverts slowly back to yellow, saying "April Fools!" with Blocky, Pen, Leafy, and Pencil.
At the beginning of the challenge, which is a bowling competition, other contestants are ready to compete but Spongy, Tennis Ball, Rocky, and Ice Cube are disqualified because they have no arms. When it is revealed that they can take thirty points off someone for each pin they knocked down, Leafy takes 10 points off everyone, making Spongy's total 128. Pencil also takes 25 points off everyone, except for herself, Bubble and Ice Cube, making Spongy's total 103. By this point, Spongy is way too far ahead of everyone else, so Firey takes away 100 points from him, making his total 3. Nevertheless, everyone is up for elimination, except for Firey.
In "The Reveal", Spongy is up for elimination but is safe with only 28 votes. The challenge is to pair up, throw Frisbees, and complete three consecutive catches. Spongy pairs up with Rocky, and they do quite well together, getting second place, and earning 100 points each. After the challenge, Spongy has 103 points, making him safe, and out of the Danger Zone. In the end, it is revealed that Spongy and the other four safe competitors will be voting off either Leafy, Ice Cube, or Tennis Ball.
In "Reveal Novum", Spongy votes for Leafy, because she has arms. Later, Announcer throws in a twist and says that the first digit of everyone's scores will be wiped off, dropping Spongy's score from 103 to 3. In the staring contest, Spongy faces off against Pencil but loses quickly. He receives five points for his effort, making his total eight, which still isn't enough to save him from the Danger Zone, and Spongy is susceptible to elimination.
In "Rescission", Spongy is up for elimination at Cake at Stake. He is in the bottom two with Pencil, but he is still safe with 141 votes. In the unicycle race, Spongy is quick to fall off his unicycle. However, he soon gets the hang of it but accidentally rams himself and Firey into a deep pit. Bubble also falls in, but Spongy springs her out of the pit. In the end, Spongy is up for the vote for not completing the race and is able to be eliminated.
In "Gardening Hero", Spongy and all the others are brought to outer space, where Cake at Stake is held. Spongy is overall safe with 142 votes. The Announcer then gives everyone immunity. The challenge is to survive in outer space or lose your immunity. After successfully dodging Leafy and Firey's shots, he shoots Leafy with a laser from his ship, causing her to lose her immunity in the contest. Spongy is then sucked into a black hole and loses his immunity. He is up for elimination, and the 15 eliminated contestants get to vote on who is out.
In "The Glistening", the contestants' only spaceship has run out of fuel, and can only run on big, yellow and squishy contestants, so everyone (except the Announcer) immediately forces Spongy into the engine. When they arrive back on Earth, Spongy is very injured and very charred for the rest of the episode. At the elimination, Pin is the only one to vote for Spongy, so he is safe another day. In the challenge, Spongy does hopelessly in the long jump, but Leafy feels terrible for burning him, so she gives Spongy her immunity, making Spongy safe another day.
In "Don't Pierce My Flesh", Spongy accidentally destroys the Announcer, and as a result, Firey and Flower make their own replacement boxes. During Cake at Stake, Spongy, having immunity, is automatically safe. The challenge is to escape from a volcano, and if contestants fall into the lava and die, they have to start over again. Spongy burns several times before he is eventually used a bridge by the other competitors. After Firey, Leafy, and Bubble die, he and Flower are seen screaming when the lava is coming to them. In the end, Spongy draws with the others, and the tiebreaker is a beauty contest. However, Spongy is not classified as 'beautiful' unsurprisingly and is up for the vote. At the end of the episode, he is turned into metal with the rest of the competitors because of them eating yoylecake, which contains yoyleberries, which have a common side effect where the person who eats them turns into metal.
In "Hurtful!", Spongy is first seen with the others, still made out of metal. He, along with the others are thrown into a furnace so the Firey replacement box can fix the TLC, and the contestants come out from the Master Recovery Center in their normal forms. During Cake at Stake, Spongy is in the bottom 2 with Leafy and is eliminated for the second and last time with 432 votes which, at the time, was the most ever, while Leafy is safe and gets a slice of the cheesecake.
In "Insectophobe's Nightmare 2", he is briefly seen when the TLC disappears, only for it to reappear and trap everyone back inside.
In "Return of the Hang Glider", Spongy is let out of the TLC, along with the rest of the losers. He votes for Leafy to win like most of the competitors. When Firey wins, Firey allows him onto Dream Island. Spongy doesn't appear for the rest of the episode afterwards. This marks his last appearance in season one.
Battle for Dream Island Again
In "Yeah, Who? I Wanna Know", Spongy was one of the contestants who made it to season 2, with 456 votes. He later decided to join the team with the original contestants. Spongy showed that his favorite screen is the TLC. He and the others urged Pin to switch teams until she finally did so. In the challenge, Spongy and his team easily won the contest.
In "Get Digging", Spongy, who has Ice Cube and Book on top of him, gets thrown off Puffball by Gelatin due to the fact that there wasn't much room. Book, Spongy, and Ice Cube fall into the forest. Evil Leafy (who probably teleported out of the TLC) then emerges, scaring Spongy and the other two and they run as Pencil told them to. Evil Leafy chases them by teleporting from place to place while they run for their lives. Spongy runs across the same bridge-like rock path Leafy did in episode one but in the other direction. As soon as Spongy steps on it, it breaks and he falls, and underneath in the gorge is a row of spikes. Book quickly saves Spongy and the three sigh with relief, thinking they are safe. However, Evil Leafy then teleports to the other side of the gorge with them, sending them running again, with a very loud scream. Spongy obviously gets tired by this due to his great weight and falls. Evil Leafy then proceeds to sink into his body, capturing him. Later, Book and Ice Cube get back to where the others are without Spongy and tell Golf Ball that Evil Leafy caught him.
In "Insectophobe's Nightmare 3", at Cake at Stake, Spongy gets a slice of cake, even though he is missing and possibly dead. Spongy is later shown at the end of the episode, throwing up Evil Leafy, seemingly unharmed by his encounter with her.
In "Zeeky Boogy Doog", Spongy is mentioned when Pencil asks Fries who he ate, and he answers that he ate Spongy. Spongy later gets revived by Coiny along with Bomby, Rocky and Bubble. In the challenge, He goes to Golf Ball's underground factory because Golf Ball ordered everyone to do so. He goes down the stairs with the others and watches Golf Ball as she puts the Dream Sauce in the Oven-o-Tron 2000. He soon gets killed by Bomby as he falls down into the incinerator and explodes.
In "Get in the Van", Spongy is recovered from Bomby's explosion in "Zeeky Boogy Doog", and along with the rest of his team, he is automatically up for elimination. Spongy has 311 likes. While he is in the bottom 6, Spongy cries about being eliminated, and Match claims that his tears are disgusting, along with Pencil saying that he should be eliminated because she can't stand him anymore. Spongy ends up being safe with 198 dislikes. Yellow Face tells Spongy to join W.O.A.H. Bunch, to which he happily agrees. Spongy is then seen walking with the rest of W.O.A.H. Bunch in the competition.
In "No More Snow!", Spongy tries to warn W.O.A.H. Bunch about the impending Evil Canyon. In order for the remaining Bunchers to stay safe from the spikes, Coiny pushes an unwilling Spongy to be used as a platform. It is unknown if this actually killed Spongy, though his body—alive or dead—is burnt by Yellow Face afterward, confirming his death.
In "It's a Monster", Spongy tries to get the other team members of W.O.A.H. Bunch to apologize for his death in the prior episode, but unfortunately, they don't care, and Needle states that "life is full of pain". Later, they try to threaten Puffball into flying their team to Yoyleland, only her for to recover Gelatin and freeze their entire team.
In "The Long-lost Yoyle City", Spongy complains that he has to carry the huge bag of money, obtained from Pin by putting Nickel and Coiny together, through the desert. When Pin asks if anyone can throw far, Spongy says he can, but when she asks him to throw a stick 2,763 miles, he tells her that he was kidding. After Puffball betrays her team, Spongy and his team reach the top of Yoyle Mountain and place 2nd.
In "Welcome Back", Spongy doesn't appear. However, he does appear in the intro.
Battle for BFB
In "Getting Teardrop to Talk", Spongy makes his first appearance when Barf Bag gets upset about Lollipop, Pillow and Eggy not taking her seriously, asking Spongy if he can, to which he responds "Yeah!". Spongy is also electrocuted by Lightning at Pencil's command. Later, when the teams are being formed, Barf Bag teams up with Spongy, after Lollipop refuses to be on hers, forming Team Ice Cube! Firey Jr. requests to be on Spongy's team after this, accepting the offer as long as Firey Jr. doesn't burn him, to which he responds with "No promises!". During the challenge, while Donut gets angry at Gelatin for wanting to ignite Bomby, Spongy is seen in the background carried by Barf Bag and Bracelety, helping the team by bouncing Naily to X's basket, winning the challenge.
In "Lick Your Way to Freedom", he licks Teardrop out of a jawbreaker.
In "Why Would You Do This on a Swingset", Spongy is seen on Team Ice Cube!'s swing when Donut gives his speech to the team. When Team Ice Cube! "transforms", Spongy is placed onto the swing with Barf Bag on his face, who uses her barf to spin the swing. They end up losing the challenge due to Bomby partly exploding.
In "Today's Very Special Episode", Spongy is one of the contestants seen climbing Bell during Cake at Stake. He is later declared safe with 1514 votes; however, he is electrocuted while on Bell's string when Lightning zaps her. Later, when Four says that this episode is very special, he responds by asking why.
In "The Liar Ball You Don't Want", Spongy can be seen at the beginning while the contestants play with poppers and clearing the Cake at Stake area for Donut. He is hit by the Liar Ball thrown by Bubble and falls over.
In "Questions Answered", he is seen next to his team's buzzer.
In "This Episode Is About Basketball", he glares at Gelatin after he almost suggests using Bomby to throw balls into Team Ice Cube!'s basket.
In "What Do You Think of Roleplay?", Spongy is the member from Team Ice Cube! chosen to be the fake. Spongy mimics Lightning and Tree mimics Spongy. Fanny realizes that Lightning often forgets he can fly, and since Spongy was excessively enjoying his newfound ability to fly through Lightning, Fanny was able to correctly accuse the mock Lightning of being an impostor. After the contest, he gets upset with his team since no one notices it was him and claims no one really knows who he is. Spongy then tells his teammates some of his hobbies and interests (including skydiving, table tennis, ping pong, tightrope walking, flying, etc.), but Firey Jr. cuts him off when Spongy says that he likes to "sail airplanes". Due to nobody figuring out that Tree was imitating Spongy, his team is up for elimination.
In "Return of the Rocket Ship" Spongy is seen at the start of the episode with Barf Bag, getting upset after she asks to call it a day after failing to sail several of the airplanes from "Fortunate Ben", claiming that she thinks he can't do it. Soon after, Barf Bag returns from a brief conversation with Taco, and he tells her he would like to play ping pong rather than table tennis. In Cake At Stake, Spongy stayed safe with 1561 votes, the second-lowest, and gets hot soup thrown at his face by Four. During the challenge, Spongy followed iance down their hole along with his team, only to be knocked out when his team lands on Bubble. He later recovers and digs sideways with his team, where they arrive at a mysterious and bright location.
In "Don't Dig Straight Down", Spongy's weight causes the lake in the newly-discovered Inverted Planet to crack, and as it is underground, spews out lava. This causes the Team Ice Cube!ers to evacuate. Barf Bag suggests using Spongy's friction to get into the hole they dug, though Donut sacrifices himself to get Spongy into the hole.
As revenge for his team not remembering him, Spongy abandons Gelatin, Barf Bag, Naily, and Bomby, opting to take a private jet instead. This forces Bomby to blow himself up to launch Barf Bag and Gelatin upwards, and Naily into Beep's hole. After Barf Bag and Gelatin are blown to safety, Barf Bag sarcastically thanks him for flying them, to which Spongy just replies that there's only one seat. He is later seen in space, laughing and saying that "not everyone's dead". Four is later seen on his ship, and Spongy tells the host to "get off [his] ship", though Four declines. In the end, Spongy is the only survivor in Team Ice Cube!.
In "The Four is Lava", Spongy and Puffball can be briefly seen racing back to earth from space. When Puffball tells Spongy to stop shooting at her, he replies that he needs to use his cannonballs because there were on sale. Puffball chucks a cannonball at his ship with Bell, destroying the cannon and a portion of the vehicle, it begins to fall out of the sky. Spongy is later seen floating down with his parachute and lands next to Four, thinking his team would be safe. He cheers for Naily, but his team ends up losing.
In "The Escape from Four", Spongy attends Cake at Stake with his team. He gets 22,845 votes, which is a record high and is eliminated. He apologizes to his team for his actions, explaining that he simply felt lonely. Four attempts to suck him into EXIT, but due to his size, he couldn't pull him in. Only half of Spongy's body is successfully sucked.
The contestants in EXIT who are in the process of trying to escape, go through Spongy's holes to escape (except Firey Jr., Match, 8-Ball, Roboty, and Pencil). They manage to reach the surface through the other half of Spongy, until the escapees (excluding Loser) are forced back through him. Firey Jr. decides to go through but accidentally sets Spongy on fire and apologizes. The fire comes in contact with Four's body, causing him to become dizzy from the pain, which allows the contestants to pull Spongy out, with a corner of him burnt. He and Loser ran away from Four and escape when he was distracted by the arrival of Two. Spongy switched to Two's show at first but switches back to Four when A BFB becomes the prize. He is one of the fourteen contestants who end up staying on BFB. Later, he, his thirteen opponents, and Four are all sent away by Two to an unknown location to compete. Also loosing his burnt spot in the process.
In "Take the Tower", Spongy receives a friendship bracelet from Taco, as a welcome back gift from his very brief elimination. During the challenge, he tells Loser that it's comfy in their tower and also helps push rocks down the cliff. He ends up having his bracelet cut by Loser so that he could connect a bridge to the other team's tower. Spongy is absent from this part of the challenge. His team ends up losing the contest when their tower breaks.
In "How Loe Can You Grow?", during Cake at Stake, Taco asks Spongy where his friendship bracelet is. Spongy is eliminated with 3,283 votes. As he is levitated into the air, he tries to tell Loser something about his spaceship, but gets pulled up too quickly. Later, he is shown still rising, saying he wanted to tell his team that his spaceship isn't able to resist heat. He then notices the sound of Balloony's screaming and greets him, wondering what he's doing there. In the stinger, Spongy and Balloony can be heard screaming.
In the end of "Let's Raid The Warehouse", he can be heard screaming with Balloony, Ruby, and Loser in the BRB.
In "B.F.B. = Back From Beginning", he, along with the rest of the eliminated contestants, is released from the BRB to help with the challenge. He is not seen until the oven part of the challenge where he interrupts Taco to tell the contestants what they have to do to win. Taco says that she has been rehearsing this line and Spongy proudly says that he stole it.
In "SOS (Save Our Show)", Spongy is first seen greeting Taco and bumps into Woody. He then greets Blocky and Woody and apologizes for not noticing them at first. Blocky refers to Taco as Tacster, but decides that she needs a better nickname, Spongy says that he likes Tacster as a nickname. Later, when the show's budget gets too low, Spongy asks if anyone has any money that they can give to the show.

- The most times eliminated at 4: twice in Season 1, and twice in Season 4.
- The most times in the bottom two at 6, with Woody, Pencil, David, Leafy, Donut, and Blocky.
- TPOT will mark the first season without Spongy.
- Spongy, Blocky, and Woody are the only contestants who were released from both the TLC and BRB at the end of their respective seasons.
- Spongy was the 4th character created as seen in carykh's "First BFDI Drawing EVER!" video.
- Spongy was the first armless character created.
- Spongy can understand Woody according to carykh's "First BFDI Drawing EVER!" video.
- Spongy disappeared in the middle of the finale of BFDI. It is unknown where he went.
- Spongy seems to have developed close friendships with Rocky and Barf Bag.
- Coincidentally, they are all classified as the "gross" competitors.
- A running gag on the show is how Spongy's weight and size make him less capable of performing tasks.
- Another running gag is that when others feel the need, they injure or penalize Spongy to help them (Such as when Pin threw him off their boat, when Leafy, Firey, Bubble, and Ice Cube shoved him into a spaceship engine, and when the W.O.A.H. Bunch pushed Spongy on some spikes).
- Spongy is the biggest and widest contestant.
- Spongy's favorite screen is the Tiny Loser Chamber, as seen in "Yeah, Who? I Wanna Know".
- He is one of the two contestants who weren't forced/threatened into joining W.O.A.H. Bunch, the other is Yellow Face.
- Spongy is the only yellow contestant in BFDI. But in BFDIA, Yellow Face is also yellow. In addition, Lightning from BFB is also yellow.
- Spongy had a whole line of assets made, mostly used by him, which are puffier.
- In "Get Digging", Match stated that she had to deal with Spongy for "like, 17 million years". If this is true, Spongy and Match might be 17 million years old. This may be true, considering that Golf Ball's book was 1,000,000,000 years old, meaning she lived that long, and this may be false, due to Match possibly exaggerating.
- It seems that the person who hates Spongy the most is Match, having said more bad things about him than anyone else. However, by "Fortunate Ben", they seem to be friends.
- However, by "The Escape from Four", Match is back to hating Spongy again.
- Spongy is the only contestant who doesn't have any interaction in "Last BFDI".
- Spongy has dark yellow blood, as shown in "No More Snow!".
- Spongy is the first character in BFB to be zapped by Lightning.
- Spongy is the only character to play Spongy Cake that isn't in FreeSmart or iance.
- Spongy is the first contestant who appears in the BFB intro.
- As seen in the source files of the BFB Intro, Spongy is legless in his pose, this was possibly a mistake.
- However, this can't be seen in the intro due to Basketball covering his face.
- Spongy has said that he has a lot of hobbies, such as skydiving, ping pong, table tennis, tightrope walking, flying in balloons, flying in airplanes, and sailing airplanes.
- Spongy has broken two landforms: the land connecting Evil Canyon and the rest of the forest, and some ground connecting the Inverted Planet and a bunch of lava underneath.
- Spongy listing his favorite hobbies in "What Do You Think of Roleplay?" is actually a line that was said at first in "The Reveal" when he is up for elimination. Although it can be hard to hear over Firey, Pencil, and the Announcer all speaking at once.
- In "Don't Dig Straight Down", Spongy indirectly caused 119 or so deaths due to being responsible for the lava erupting from an underground lake.
- As shown in "The Escape from Four", Spongy is so heavy that Four struggles to suck him up, even losing his breath before he can fully absorb him. This shows that either Four has a weight limit to his absorption power, or Spongy has an impossibly high density.
- It is also shown that Spongy's body is hollow and can be traveled through by entering his holes.
