Spongy the punching bag

This page is about the relationships and interactions between Spongy and the other characters.

Spongy isn't very popular with most contestants as he's often referred to as smelly, fat, or dead weight. Spongy himself is actually kind, sensitive, and mostly harmless.



In "Half a Loaf Is Better Than None", when Spongy rejoins, he complains that his name isn't on the scoreboard. The Announcer tells him that since rejoined the game with 38 loaves in his basket, his score is 38.

In "The Reveal", Spongy seem to have no problem with the Announcer pointing out his extreme fatness. Spongy moans in pain when the Announcer throws a knife at him.

In "The Glistening", when the Announcer asks who wants to go back to earth, Spongy raises his foot.

In "Don't Pierce My Flesh", Spongy accidentally kills the Announcer when he falls and crushes him.

In "Return of the Hang Glider", Spongy screams when the Announcer reveals that he sold Dream Island.

Barf Bag

In "Getting Teardrop to Talk", Barf Bag asks if Spongy will take her seriously, since no one else will. Spongy enthusiastically says that he will, and later on they become teammates. Later, Barf Bag and Bracelety use Spongy as a trampoline in order to get the basket to X.

In "Why Would You Do This on a Swingset", Barf Bag hops into Spongy's mouth and uses her vomit to propel her team's swing in circles.

In "What Do You Think of Roleplay?", after their team loses, Spongy gets upset that nobody noticed that he was gone. He questions if they even know anything about him, and Barf Bag tries to tell him that they do, but he tells her that they don't.

In "Return of the Rocket Ship", the two are seen in a pool with multiple paper planes that Spongy attempted to sail. Barf Bag suggests that they call it day for a number of reasons and Spongy irritably responds that she just doesn't think he can do it. After being pulled out of the pool and Barf Bag and Taco finish talking, Barf Bag suggests they play a game of table tennis, Spongy replies that he'd rather play ping-pong.

In "Don't Dig Straight Down", Spongy abandons his team, including Barf Bag, because they forgot him in "What Do You Think of Roleplay?". He does, however, seem to be slightly guilty about it at first. Barf Bag seems especially upset by this.
