— Taco, "Getting Teardrop to Talk"
Taco is a female contestant on Battle for BFB. She was one of the 30 recommended characters that could've joined Battle For Dream Island in "Reveal Novum". However, Taco only received 9 votes, along with Marker and Dora. She placed 11th/10th place and was sent to the Locker of Losers. Taco was also up for voting for Battle for Dream Island Again, but only got 159 votes and once again failed to join.
Taco is currently competing in BFB as a member of the Have Nots, previously .
Taco appears to be a taco with a shell, lettuce, tomatoes, and a fish. Her design has changed between BFDIA and IDFB; in BFDI and BFDIA, Taco had a hard tortilla that was a darker shade of yellow. Her fish was placed on the top, and she always appeared with check-it eyebrows.
In IDFB, Taco has a soft tortilla that is beige. Taco's ingredients are also more visible, more notably with the lettuce on the top. Starting in the end of "Lick Your Way to Freedom", she no longer has a fish inside of her because she ate it while she was trapped inside of the Jawbreaker, although she got it back after being recovered in "Enter The Exit". She also takes the form of Spongy's taco from "Vomitaco". In, The Four is Lava, she gets burnt by the lava, technically making her a hard shell taco, she was also burnt by Saw in said episode.

Taco has multiple sides to her character. She is sometimes portrayed as stubborn, foolhardy, and reckless, as she will by any means do whatever it takes to win regardless of how her actions will affect others. This can be seen in "Getting Teardrop to Talk" (her entire team), "Four Goes Too Far" (Bell), and "What Do You Think of Roleplay?" (Bottle). Taco can also be resourceful, clever, and independent, as she is often seen leading her team or taking matters into her own hands instead. She can also be prideful, shown when Lollipop read eulogies she had prepared for Taco, which praised her as being bold and courageous.
Taco also seems to have a much more sensitive and caring side at times. In "Why Would You Do This on a Swingset", when thinks that she abandoned them, Taco shows genuine hurt and gets emotional. In BFB 10's stinger, she apologizes to Bell, showing her caring side. In "Four Goes Too Far", even when her team is mad at her, she shows a great amount of loyalty, transferring the Twinkle to Bell, preventing her team from getting UFE.
Overall, Taco is headstrong and crafty, yet foolhardy and prideful.

Battle for BFB
Taco's first major — and speaking — role is in "Getting Teardrop to Talk", where she is initially seen lounging around with Firey, Coiny, and Snowball. She is able to throw Pin's blueberry seeds into one of Cloudy's pots. Later on, she is angered by Four's murder of Pin. Taco joins , along with Saw and Lollipop. During the challenge, Taco leads the rest of her team in chasing down one of X's baskets. This brings them into the desert, the world's largest oven, and molten lava. She pushes her team through it all, even when some teammates start to die. Taco is not present when Saw brings X the basket, and it is later revealed that she died, presumably in the lava.
In "Lick Your Way to Freedom", Taco is absent during most of the episode, being trapped inside a jawbreaker. Taco is not freed from her candy cage because David stops licking the jawbreaker she was in. She's seemingly stuck in the jawbreaker for many days, and she tries to escape on her own, at one point even eating her fish and using its skeleton to dig at the wall of her prison.
In "Why Would You Do This on a Swingset", Four doesn't bother to release Taco, so she is still trapped inside the jawbreaker, but she is also on her team's swing. She constantly tries to communicate with her fellow team members, but they are unable to hear her (due to the fact that sound can come into a jawbreaker, but it can't come out), leading to some of them thinking that she's dead, and some of them thinking that she abandoned them. Taco listens into a conversation between Book and Ice Cube relating to her, and when Book says Taco has abandoned them, Taco herself breaks into sadness. Towards the end of the challenge, Taco finally breaks free from the jawbreaker, but her sudden appearance aggravates her teammates who believe that Taco left them on purpose.
In "Four Goes Too Far", she is first seen in the heart scene. She gets the Twinkle, but passes it on. She is later seen latching onto ABNTT's rocket. In space, she gets the Twinkle once again. She jumps off the chain of contestants, prompting a negative response from her teammates. She is later seen landing on the surface of the Earth, and walks back to where the other contestants are. She meets Bell, and tries to get her to look at the moon, which works. As neither Taco nor her team have the Twinkle after the timer ends, her team is safe, but the rest of her team is still stuck with ABNTT on the Moon, as the rocket broke.
In "The Liar Ball You Don't Want", Taco somehow has the Twinkle again. When Donut is asked about where Loser is, he lifts and throws the jawbreaker Loser is in which lands on and kills Taco. Her team sees a flattened Taco from the moon.
In "Enter the Exit", Taco gets recovered by a recovered Four (which also means she gets her fish back). She doesn't say anything until the episode's stinger, where she tries to apologize to Bell. However, Bell is annoyed at how Taco used her previously. Interestingly, Bell asks her if she knows that "sorry" doesn't always cut it, to which Taco replies with "You'd think I would know that by now," possibly referring to how her team wouldn't accept her after BFB 3. Lollipop watches this.
In "Get to the Top in 500 Steps", while Taco herself isn't seen, Book mentions that they won't be choosing Taco to run in the challenge, but Lollipop says that she should talk to her instead of talking about her.
In "What Do You Think of Roleplay?", Taco mimics Tree, while Pin mimics Taco. As Tree (who is stuck inside of Bottle at the time), Taco asks Death P.A.C.T. to help them get unstuck. While Pie says that being "slow and steady" is the only way, Taco makes her way out of Bottle by smashing and killing her. This murder clues Pie in to correctly accusing the mock Tree of being an impostor. Once uncovers Pin, Book becomes livid over discovering that Taco had "abandoned" them once more.
In "Return of the Rocket Ship", Taco calls Barf Bag to hang out with her, interrupting her paper plane sailing session with Spongy. When Barf Bag says she is busy and asks her to talk with her other friends in , she tells her not to talk about her team. When Barf Bag tells her she should start caring what they think of her, Taco covers her ears and walks away, not listening to Barf Bag's advice.
For the remainder of the episode, she just sits doing nothing as she does not want to interact with her team at the time.
In "Don't Dig Straight Down", Book pushes Ice Cube and Taco away from the lava. Taco lands on a rooftop and is confused as to why Book saved her.
In "The Four is Lava", Taco wonders what she is going to say to Book after she saved her. After Four brings her to Cake at Stake, she is greeted by her teammates. Saw gives her a hug and burns her. Gaty then apologizes to her about the jawbreaker incident, which she smiles at. Taco then asks Four to bring back Book, much to everyone's shock. She tries to talk to her, but Four interrupts her before she can say anything. Taco is declared safe with only 1,387 votes, and Four gives her the thought of Book saving her, which she claims is not very happy and says she "[doesn't]...know how to feel about that yet". Later in the episode, she tries to apologize to Book again, but Four again interrupts her.
In "The Escape from Four", Taco is extremely enthusiastic at the thought of gaining Two's powers, but is convinced not to compete for them on TPOT when Four offers A BFB as the new prize of BFB. Taco is reluctant to switch to BFB for fear of being accused of abandoning her team again, but Book assures her that she is not going to force her to stay with them and says that she can tell the team all about her experiences when they meet again. Taco stays on BFB, and is one of fourteen contestants to do so. She, along with her thirteen opponents and Four, is transported to a new location by Two to compete.
In "X Marks the Spot", Taco speaks for the rest of the contestants and wants clarification from Four. Four later asks where X is to which Taco replies that Four told X to leave and they know where he is. Taco is placed on the Have Nots. During the competition, Taco states that Woody thinks they will never be able to get X. When Loser presents his strategy, Taco disagrees, stating it's "pseudoscience". When Flower asks to make an alliance with Taco, she declines. She is later proven wrong when X ends up marking Loser's spot, albeit because of the other team, so her team is safe.
In, "Take the Tower", Taco gives Spongy a friendship bracelet to welcome him back from his short elimination. During the competition, Taco is seen struggling to carry a rock, and then later enlists the help of Spongy, Loser, and Blocky to push all of the rocks at the other team's tower. When they climb up the tower, Taco knocks Flower off for being Dora, telling her that "TPOT contestants do not belong in this battle arena" (despite the fact that Dora is in EXIT, not on TPOT). On the bridge, Taco comforts Woody when he's to scared to move. She manages to hang on to the bracelet after Teardrop flings Woody away, and fights Ruby, ending in both of them falling off. Her team ends up losing the contest because when Taco pushed Flower earlier, Flower caused the castle to crumble when she landed.
In "How Loe Can You Grow?", Taco questions Spongy on the whereabouts of the friendship bracelet she gave him. When Spongy is in the bottom two, Taco says she would be cheering for Spongy if he had his friendship bracelet. During the challenge, Taco tells Blocky that he should try being more gentle on Woody and walks with him to Spongy's spaceship. They are later seen still outside the spaceship as Blocky doesn't feel like going in. Taco is confused by this since he's known for causing mischief. Blocky then tells her about his show Blocky's Funny Doings International. Taco encourages Blocky to do more funny doings and shows shadow puppets because the viewers are bored. Her team is safe from elimination when Firey fires a laser at the sun. This causes X to burn and Taco figures they made the sun too hot. She gets inside Spongy's spaceship to throw ice on the sun, but burns to death since the spaceship isn't resistant to heat.
In "A Taste of Space", Taco is recovered by Four. She then tells Four that the Have Cots have an advantage in the challenge, only to have Four ignore her. Later, she tells Blocky that using the mirror to reflect the sun's heat only made it hotter. When Flower suggests that the team make it nighttime, Taco says that it won't make the sun any cooler, which Flower claims they would get points anyway. Taco gets her team to run on the spot to make it night faster. Taco later yells at X to stop standing in the sun if he does not want to burn, but X takes away two points from their team for being mean. Taco tries to tell Firey something, but she couldn't find him since he was still on the sun and tells Blocky it is farther then he thinks, so she yells at him to sink himself into the sun. After Firey sinks into the sun, Taco complains that it is boiling hot, and tells Blocky to do something. After Blocky tells his team that they are no rules, she suggests to just do whatever will work, and puts some clouds in the sky, which X takes away points for. Her team ends up losing the contest.
