|“||These team names are so stupid! Is it always like this?||”|
At the beginning of each season of the Battle for Dream Island series, the contestants form teams. The challenges in each episode pits teams against each other. Later on the season, teams break down, forcing each contestant to compete individually.
Teams in TFI
Teams in BFDI
The teams are first created by Leafy and Pin but the names were chosen by The Announcer. In "Puzzling Mysteries" the Squashy Grapes, after winning the challenge, get Firey on their team. In "Insectophobe's Nightmare", Blocky rejoined causing the Squashy Grapes to have twice as many members as the Squishy Cherries, this caused the Announcer to divide the Squashy Grapes into another team, thus forming the team Another Name. In "A Leg Up in the Race" the teams officially disbanded.
The teams in the first season are:
Squashy Grapes (at Episode 1b)
Squishy Cherries (at Episode 1b)
Another Name (at Episode 9)
Teams in BFDIA
In Episode 1 of BFDIA Tennis Ball suggested that one team have newbies, and the other have veterans, Donut noted that their team was smaller causing everyone on his team to switch. He did, however, get Coiny and Pin to switch. In "Get Digging", after Donut's elimination, Coiny gets Teardrop to join W.O.A.H. Bunch. In "Insectophobe's Nightmare 3", Coiny gets Needle to join W.O.A.H. Bunch. In Episode 4, after Teardrop's elimination, Coiny and Pin get Bomby and Yellow Face to switch from Team No-Name to W.O.A.H. Bunch. In "Get in the Van" after Pin and Yellow Face get Spongy and Nickel to switch, Golf Ball makes No-Name swear to never switch, however, Pencil, Ruby, Book, and Ice Cube don't comply and form FreeSmart with Match and Bubble.
The teams in the second season are:

- All of the 3 finalists in BFDI were on different teams: Firey in Another Name, Leafy in Squashy Grapes and Bubble in Squishy Cherries. Firey, however, has been on all 3 teams, but his last was Another Name, so it could be considered that he represented for Another Name in the finale.
