Battle for Dream Island

Take the Plunge

Pin wins Dream Island

In a deleted scene seen in the BFDI 1 storyboard, an alternate cut is present.

Teardrop successfully pushes off Rocky without slipping. The camera then cuts to Pin and Leafy. Leafy wins with scissors, and says she will push Pin off. Pin retorts, saying she didn't agree with that. Teardrop then comes up and pushes Leafy off the balance beam. Leafy, falling, asks Pin to rescue her, saying "Pin! Alliance!". Pin says she refuses because of what she said. After a zoom out with the sky flashing, Pin gets angry at Teardrop. Pin then chases Teardrop to the edge of the balance beam, where she falls off. With nobody left, it can be assumed that Pin won Dream Island.

Cut Concepts

In Total Firey Points, some things present were cut or removed.

Leafy's abnormal eyes

In the .fla file during the scene where Leafy mistakenly steps on Blocky's foot, Leafy's eyes aren't seen, so her eyes change in a weird manner outside the border as a joke.

Team names

Originally, the Squishy Cherries were called Murderer Trout, and the Squashy Grapes were called the Yelling Beavers. This is, of course, a parody of the 2 teams in Total Drama Island, the Screaming Gophers and Killer Bass.

Cut Announcer Line

In Ep1Sc9.fla, after Pin pops Bubble by accident, there's a cut announcer line saying "I'm waiting. What's taking them so long?"

Home Drawing

When the Announcer says that one of the Squashy Grapes will be going home, a drawing of a home with some green text above it saying "Home Sweet Home" with some more green text to the side saying "Actually the TLC, remember?" appears above the screen, out of view.

Barriers and Pitfalls-Power of Three

Unused storyboard scenes

In the storyboards, various scenes were crossed out, meaning they were not needed.

Barriers and Pitfalls

  • After Announcer told Pin about her Win Token, Pin was originally gonna celebrate before asking "What is a win token."
  • Originally, Announcer was going to say

Announcer

Okay, first of all, why you won it.

to explain why she got the token.

  • When the Announcer said Pin did better than the rest of the contestants, pictures of the contestants was going to appear.
  • Announcer originally said

Announcer

You can have more than one at once, however you can only was one at a time.

This was cut for unknown reasons.

Puzzling Mysteries

As shown in BFDI Storyboards, there were supposed to be two rejoins (Contestant choice). The Squashy Grapes would have chosen Woody (but would have wanted Spongy, and would accidentally say Woody's name) and the Squishy Cherries would have chosen Blocky. The beginning of the Announcers line of the Squashy Grapes being able to choose a contestant is able to be heard at the end of Ep7Sc9.fla, and Squishy Cherries choosing Blocky can be heard in Ep7Sc11.fla, with text saying "Ack! Tillf." then "Oh Pou?" then 2 hands with the text "KK!" inbetween them, then a swirl with an arrow pointing at it saying "Smile" then "I don't think." then "EEEEE" then some angry eyebrows and an angry mouth drawn on eraser with "YA!" written

Alternate Space Introduction

Bfdi 23 deleted scene page 3
A storyboard for an alternate version of the contestants in space was uploaded to a Google Drive folder for auditioning audio editors for Jacknjellify during the hiring period in February 2020. The scene where Announcer scoops the contestants into Space plays out differently compared to the final episode.

Don't Pierce My Flesh

Rocky survives elimination

Bfdi 23 deleted scene page 2

On February 13th, 2020, Jacknjellify released a Google Drive folder containing materials to audition to work for Jacknjellify as an audio editor.

Initially, Flower was eliminated again and Rocky was safe. Rocky was going to barf on Firey and participate in the challenge. Flower Speaker Box and Firey Speaker Box are also absent and Announcer does not die. Another minor difference is that a helicopter was used instead of a Spaceship to take the contestants to The Volcano.

Hurtful!

Firey Speaker Box and Flower Speaker Box kill Announcer

Bfdi 23 deleted scene page 1
In the same Google Drive folder with some other deleted scenes for other BFDI episodes, the scene where Announcer returns is different.

Notably, Flower Speaker Box is still alive. It is possible the scene where Flower accidentally kills her wasn't created at the time the storyboard was written.

Battle for Dream Island Again

Yeah, Who? I Wanna Know

Evil Leafy sneaks up

In 1-1.fla when Pencil brings out the Leafy Detector, an outline of Evil Leafy appears behind the trees on Layer 116. It never shows up because the layer that Evil Leafy is on is a guide layer, which when exported into a .swf, doesn't appear.

Though it does appear in the alternate cut-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cv1Qz0GCaxw

Reference picture

In 1-1.fla, there's a graphic in the library labeled "screenie", which contains "frame 001.png", the first frame from the BFDI intro. This was most likely used as a reference. This is also left in 1-voting.fla.

Extra tosser footage

In 1-3.fla, there's an extra second of footage of the tosser resting on the grass after sending the eliminated contestants away.

Gelatin

A drawn picture of Gelatin with no arms can be seen in the object library named as "gel pic" in 1-4.fla. It is possible that this was going to be the original design of Gelatin, being armless. Another unused Gelatin related symbol is "gelatin2", which contains "Gel ATin" written in blue.

"No reading ahead"

In 1-5.fla when Yellow Face reads the rules, Rule Four is at the bottom and says "No reading ahead", which is the same message for Rule Three when Eraser was reading off the rules.

Unused Golf Ball line

In 1-screens.fla, Golf Ball's line at the end was originally:

Golf Ball

Stop it, people. Let's start the contest already!

but it got cut to:

Golf Ball

Stop it, people.

with scribbles over the deleted line to imply it wasn't needed.

1-screens

In 1-5.fla, before the scene with Firey nearly slapping Coiny, 2 frames read "1-screens", which is the name of the Flash file with the screens scene.

Gallery

Zeeky Boogy Doog

Book Bitmap

Bitmap 97

In the fla file "4-1 with bending", there is a bitmap called "Bitmap 97". It's a pose from BFDIA 1.

The Long-lost Yoyle City

Unused Golf Ball Line

In 5e-7.fla, Golf ball was originally going to say:

Golf Ball

...well, now it's a 99.1% chance, cause FreeSmart's catching up! Puffball...
This line got cut off for an unknown reason.

WB CLIMB

During the same scene, when W.O.A.H Bunch starts walking up the Yoyle Mountain, a placeholder message appears for a single frame saying "WB CLIMB".

BFDIA 6

More audio was released along with the video "BFDIA 6 Deleted Scenes", but was deleted for unknown reasons. In it a splash sound can be heard and it's implied that a gray speaker box landed in some water. Pin sees this and asks if it's the original Announcer. Firey Speaker Box deepens his voice and says he is the Announcer, trying to trick Pin. Ruby tells Pin that it's just the Firey Speaker Box after he had eaten some of yoyleberries that she offered him. After learning this, Pin asks him if she can have her limbs back since the contest is over. Firey Speaker Box says she can't because that would breaking the rules.

Recommended Characters

Meatball by rj3ful1
Possible Meatball RC for BFDIA 6

In the file 15i-rcolumn.fla from the BFB 16 fla files, there is an RC called Meatball. For some reason, this RC has an asset that dates back to 8/11/2013, 10 days after BFDIA 5e was published. As seen in the Back 2 School Bad News video, there is a unreleased .fla file that has the BFDIA 6 RCs, and this means that Meatball would of appeared in BFDIA 6 if the episode was released.

IDFB

IDFB Bow

Gum Bally RC has an IDFB Bow

In the file 6-2.fla from the BFB 6 fla files, there is an RC called Gum Bally. For some reason, this RC has a bow that is suppose to be a Bow in IDFB. The asset dates back to 12/5/2016, 3 months and 4 days after IDFB 1 was released and before BFB was in production.

IDFB Dough

Dough RC is an IDFB Dough

In the file 15-17_final.fla from the BFB 15 fla files, there is an RC called Dough. For some reason, this RC has an asset that is suppose to be a Dough in IDFB. The asset dates back to 12/5/2016, 3 months and 4 days after IDFB 1 was released and before BFB was in production.

IDFB Marshmallow

Marshmellow RC is an IDFB Marshmallow

In the file 15-16_tomi.fla from the BFB 15 fla files, there is an RC called Marshmellow. For some reason, this RC has an asset that is suppose to be a Marshmallow in IDFB. The asset dates back to 12/5/2016, 3 months and 4 days after IDFB 1 was released and before BFB was in production.

Episode 2 or 3

On November 7th 2017 in the Htwins Central Discord server, Satomi realised the assets for IDFB and the assets .fla was called assets 2-2, implying that IDFB had a second episode and animation was worked on and some assets like Barf Bag have the symbol name BarfBag 3-4, also implying that 2 episodes where being worked on at the same time. It is possible that IDFB wouldn't've been vote-based because they didn't have the votes for episode 2 yet and IDFB 3 was perhaps further in development.

Battle for BFDI

Getting Teardrop to Talk

Swapped Genders

Screenshot 20200424-130901
In the storyboard, Loser's line about telling Pencil to put down Naily, he refers to Naily as a male. According to Satomi Hinatsu from a tweet in 2017, this was because Naily was intended to be male early in production, but this was discarded due to the voice that Katherine Sun gave her was too feminine. The same tweet thread also states that Naily and Cloudy swapped genders, indicating that Cloudy was a female during the episode production. This was changed likely for the same reason Naily's gender was changed, but in this case Michael Huang made Cloudy's voice too masculine.

Behind the Scenes

In a Humany video titled "CARY REACTS TO BFB EPISODE 1", Cary Huang reveals a change between the storyboard and the final episode.

  • Book was supposed to be angry to be an alternate when she mentions it to the alliance (mainly Pencil) but Cary said that the first episode shouldn't have negative feelings like anger.

Four Sketch

Beta
The .fla for the intro contains a sketch of Four's intro pose.

Four's unused mouth

UNUSED FOUR LIPSYNC
In 1-33, When Four is pointing to X's baskets, a fully animated, lip synced mouth is present, possibly for use if Four's body and mouth was to appear on screen during the scene, but they didn't.

Recovery Centers don't get sucked up?

Screenshot 20180809-180636
In a storyboard depicting the first part of the BFB intro, there is some notes suggesting at one point, the recovery centers were not going to be sucked up by Black Hole. The idea was originally that the recovery center were indeed going to be sucked up, but an edit in red ink later changes adds a "don't" before later the decision that the recovery centers would be sucked up, and the "n't" in "don't" is scribbled out.

Eraser's weird face

Screenshot (938)

The weird face.

In 1-1.fla during the scene where Pen says that the parallelogram is a Rectangle, offscreen Eraser makes a weird face & Pen looks at him strangely.

Gaty’s unused line

There's a cut line in 1-42.fla of Gaty saying an unused line of dialogue with the writing "OMIT THIS":

Gaty

I'm hanging, I'm hanging!
Gaty cut line

It is unknown why this line exists. It is possible that Gaty's death was going to take place inside of the World's Largest Oven.

Shortened Donut line

In 1-3.fla, Donut had an extended line of dialogue saying:

Donut

Yeah, I know that, but why?

...Which was changed to:

Donut

Yeah, but why?

The scene is completely lipsynced, and it is unknown why it was cut.

Asset Intro

In the intro-charzoom.fla a hidden layer can be accessed and displays every asset from the contestants in the normal orderly fashion sped up to end before the title screen. This was most likely just a reference for the order of everyone during it.

Lollipop taking Eggy's Role

In the scene where Teardrop was sitting at the end of the cliff and Eggy talked to her about slience, Lollipop was intended to fill this role. She still retained her lines and role after she appeared on screen and shows off her Fork Repellent.

Armless Lightning

Armless Lightning
Lightning was depicted as armless early in the storyboard, but during the team picking scenes, he gains arms. It was likely that Lightning was originally supposed to stay limbless in BFB.

Pillow Swears

Pillow Swears
Innuendo: In the scene where Pillow explains her research on arm fluttering, Pillow was supposed to say "f***". In the final episode, she says "fluff" instead. This was likely changed due to profanity in a web series that is generally intended for all ages, whether it was censored or not.

Lack of leg is NOT CANON

Not canon

When Four says "The Losers! are safe!", there's an off-screen text saying "Lack of leg is NOT CANON".

Dora's Rant

Dora speech
After Lollipop tells Dora to shut her pie hole, Dora responds angrily. However, it appears that actual dialogue for her was created. It's possible that this was cut due to the 4 second timeframe of Dora's comeback made it near impossible to display.

It was later revealed on the Battle for Dream Island Wiki Discord server that the reason why the speech was cut was according to Satomi Hinatsu, dropped by Michael Huang due to it "dampening the comedic timing".[1]

Four says hey guys before crushing Black Hole

In a storyboard that can be found in 4dance.fla, it is shown that Four would have said "Hey guys" before crushing Black Hole to a smaller size. This was also done by Two in "The Escape from Four".

Satomi is best girl

Nick le
Nickel's asset contains some hidden handwriting saying "satomi is best girl".

Fanny with arms

1587749896024
In the storyboard, Fanny is shown with arms for a single drawing. It is unknown if this was an error or intentional.

Teardrop slaps Gaty

Teardrop originally slapped Gaty instead of Taco in the desert scene.

Flower original line

Flower was originally going to say "I swear I've changed!" instead of "we don't have to be!"

Lick Your Way to Freedom

Deleted Recommended Characters

There are several recommended characters whose assets are left in the flash files of BFB 2, but were not displayed as recommended characters. Most of these characters were likely cut due to the content contained within them being copyrighted.

Ice cube's shortened line

In 2-12.fla, there is a storyboard piece and it has a cut line:

Ice Cube

Thanks!

It was changed to:

Ice Cube

Yay!

Cloudy at the Waterfall

Cloudy visits Roboty
In a storyboard located in 2-16.fla, there is a scene that depicts Cloudy flying above the waterfall that Roboty visited. If Cloudy visited the waterfall, he would have been the 2nd member to visit the Waterfall before Woody.

Unused Yellow Face commercial scene

In a storyboard for this episode, there is an audio only scene depicting one of Yellow Face's commercials, but on May 12, 2020, it was confirmed that this scene is not canon, since it is audio only. Here is the cut scene:

Fries

Ok Yellow Face, lets see those leadership skills in action. What should we all do?

Yellow Face

Need a more efficient way to burn through jawbreakers?

Yellow Face

Follow this easy four step guide.

Fries

What is this thing? What do I do with it?

Eraser

Gimme that!

Marker snatches TV and Eraser puts Yellow Face's cassette tape into TV.

Yellow Face

(voice only) Step 1: collect a lot of saliva. Step 2: dump the saliva onto the jawbreaker. Step 3: let it all sit for just a few seconds. [Step] 4: CHOMP!

Free Food all spit into Bell and they pour the spit onto a jawbreaker. Stapy breaks it open and Fries interrupts him just before he can finish Step 4.

Fries

Wait, Stapy! What if someone is inside? You could hurt them! What if it is Foldy?

Stapy

What's so bad if it's Foldy?

Blocky proceeds to take TV and announce his plan to ABNTT.

Blocky

Okay guys, I think we have a new plan.

The cut scene ends and it switches to X telling Leafy that their team is missing a team member.

This is what the fourth last line was changed from before the scene was scrapped entirely:

Fries

Wait, Stapy! What if Foldy's in there? You could hurt her!

It was changed to this before the scene got scrapped entirely:

Fries

Wait, Stapy! What if someone is inside? You could hurt them! What if it is Foldy?

Yellow Face's 4-Step Guide VHS

There are two unused files of Yellow Face's 4-Step Guide VHS, which can be found in some of the .fla files of BFB.

Leafy's extended line

In 2-18.fla, there is another storyboard piece and it has another cut line:

Leafy

Nickel, you have a new job.

It was changed to:

Leafy

Nickel, I'm sorry to take away your job, but I have a new one for you.

Balloony dabs

Balloony Dabs in BFB 2
In a storyboard in 2-25.fla, there is an alternate cut of the scene where Woody dabs, but Balloony dabbed instead of Woody.

Alternate Leafy line

In a storyboard when Leafy pops Balloony her line is different.

Image0-1

Scrapped Thumbnail

Thumbnail0001
On the first frame of the thumbnail.fla file for this episode, there is a scrapped thumbnail that shows Nickel and Woody. Woody's pose in this thumbnail was reused in the final thumbnail, just saturated, and Nickel was removed and replaced by Taco in the jawbreaker.

Why Would You Do This on a Swingset

Four screeches Cloudy

When Cloudy said "I noticed you were gone!", Four would have screeched him.

Gaty mad

Originally, Saw wouldn't have been mad at Taco, and it would have been Gaty instead.

It's possible that if this idea carried on, Saw would have knocked sense into Book in BFB 13 instead of Gaty.

Bomby little bit exploded

When Gelatin says "It's okay Bomby, you're only a little bit exploded", he and his teammates would have been charred.

Swingset Concept Art

Inside some of the .flas of the episode contains some concept art of the Swingsets.

Beep Loses

BEEP Loses BFB 3
Satomi Hinatsu has previously stated that Beep was intended to lose again in BFB 3, but the idea was dropped.

Nonexisty

In a scrapped storyboard of BFB 3, Ruby asked Four why Nonexisty wasn't included in BFB, the scene was dropped and isn't counted within the show's canon.

Reverse Race

In the same scrapped storyboard for BFB 3, the contest was going to be reverse race. Whichever team was the last to start running would lose. It was dropped for being "genuinely unfunny" and too short.

When questioned on Discord, Satomi Hinatsu provided additional details regarding the production of the storyboard. She apparently wrote the storyboard by herself, and once considered it funny, which she now disagrees with. The storyboard was written on November 20th, 2017 and was scrapped a few hours later when Michael Huang went to record the lines, and criticized the storyboard due to a lack of jokes. Satomi does not recall Cary Huang seeing the storyboard.[2][3]

The idea of stabbing Naily into the ground would eventually be reused in The Four is Lava.

Today’s Very Special Episode

TV says Error

In 4-1.fla, when the intro's audio starts, it is stopped with a odd noise, and TV proceeds to say "Error."

Unfinished Rocky Assets

In the files of BFB 4, files for what appears to be a top view of Rocky that transitions to his normal view is present in the files. A .zip archive of these assets can be found here.

Stapy's line cut short

In 4-2.fla, when Marker was playing rock paper scissors and played Four, Stapy was originally going to say:

Stapy

Oh my God, Marker!

but it got cut to:

Stapy

Marker!

Get your butts over here

5297C280-03BB-4BF7-952B-B018BC7B3F34

As seen in Cary voicing BFB 4 lines, Four was originally going to say:

Four

Get your butts over here.

It was later changed to:

Four

Get your feet over here.

Satomi up for voting

Type -I- to eliminate SATOMI

In the .fla of the voting screen for Death P.A.C.T., there is something off-screen that reads "Type [I] to eliminate SATOMI". "Satomi" refers to Satomi Hinatsu, who is one of the animators for Battle for BFDI, and this joke was offscreen, making it unseen content.

Fortunate Ben

Storyboard Piece

Screen Shot 2018-01-12 at 8.38.29 AM

A storyboard fragment of Stapy descending with staples can be seen. It is dated January 12th, 2018.

Cake's Role

Cake Confirmed BFB 5
In a Humany video featuring Cary Huang recording his lines for BFB 4, part of the BFB 4 storyboard is visible. For a portion of the video, a part containing the night scene contained a note in green text by the storyboarder saying that they wish that they could give Cake screentime, but felt that Eggy and Teardrop were more important. In all capital letters, they say that they want "MORE CAKE IN BFB 5!!!!!".

In the actual episode, Cake only appears on his team's paper plane and has no lines of dialogue. It is unknown why the idea of Cake receiving a role in BFB 5 was dropped.

Bitmaps

Bitmaps of Free Food and BEEP are able to be found in the episode's files. They are all low resolution images of the contestants on each team's members. Interestingly, Leafy is present in the bitmaps despite her being eliminated in "Lick Your Way to Freedom". A .zip document containing the bitmaps can be downloaded here.

Four Goes Too Far

Donut's changed line

According to Cary reacts to BFB Episode 6, when Donut said:

Donut

Huh? This can't be real...

It was originally going to be:

Donut

Oh dear God...

as they considered this phrase to be too harshly worded.

Original rocket landing

Caedmon Johnson, one of the BFB animators, wrote a post on Twitter, saying that the rocket landing was originally going to land in a humorous way, but got changed during production.

Rocketlandalt

The Liar Ball You Don't Want

Original Bomby pop toy color

Outside of the border of 7-1.fla on the scene where Bomby gets launched in the air from the red popper toy, the original color for the popper toy was orange outside the border before the part played.

Whatthe

Donut's unheard line

According to Cary's reaction to BFB 7, when Loser was eliminated, Donut was supposed to say that he is the first contestant to get a number of votes with 5 digits.

Yellow Face and Pen

Outside of the 7-7.fla file when Remote receives A Better Name Than That's connection, in the background Pen would've been seen taking the liar ball from Yellow Face.

Off-screen

Off screen things

On the 7-7.fla file, a text says 'OFF-SCREEN THINGS ARE NOT CANON' after Blocky alerts ABNTT that the Liar Ball was heading for Bleh's goal.

Questions Answered

Behind the Scenes

In a Humany video titled "CARY REACTS TO BFB 8", Cary Huang reveals some changes between the storyboard and the final episode.

  • Someone was going to say Clock wasn't supposed to ring or was on the wrong time. It was cut because he thought it was dumb and conflicted Clock's honest character.
  • When GB said to TV not to fudge the results, TV was originally going to show an X, but was cut because "it ruined the joke".
  • Donut was going to say to Lollipop "Hey, it's a subconscious habit!", but was dropped because he didn't want BFDI to be "overly wordy".
  • They were going to mess with the one way portal thing for a few extra pages of storyboard (4 or 5). Cary cut it because he didn't want the Cake at Stake to be too long.
  • Someone was going to say to Saw after she inhaled the 8-Ball fumes "Yeah, that's dangerous" but was cut.
  • According to Cary, the reason why Match and Snowball bullied Bubble was because he feared a quiz contest would be boring so he needed to add more substance.
  • Donut was going to say "Barf Bag, I've been trying to give you easy shots!" But he thought it sounded weird so he used "pieces of cake" instead since they're already established in BFDI.
  • The reason why the final question involved seasons is because Cary initially wanted the question to be 3 answered with both teams getting it wrong, realizing the third (correct) answer, and race to answer it. He doesn't know why he chose seasons instead, and the "race to the correct answer" idea was dropped.

TV Should Win

In one of the .flas, when TV is off-screen it says "Comment 'TV Should Win'".

Gelatin's Nervousness

Additionally, In 8-1.fla, When Gelatin slides over to Barf Bag, he is seen with a much different facial expression than in the actual episode. He nervously taps his hands together twice while talking to her, it is unknown why it was removed.

Unused gelatin animation

Unused gelatin animation

Audio Changes

In the 8-1.fla file, Match's voice is unedited.

BFDI Unused and Unseen Content

BFDI Unused and Unseen Content

In some scenes, Donut's voice sounds lower in the Flash files than the actual episode.

During the ending when Match shows Donut the footage, there's an extended version in one of the .flas of him watching the footage.

This Episode Is About Basketball

Hidden text & "SUBSCRIBE"

Not x text

"definitely not x"

Hidden text is scattered around the .fla files. In 9-3.fla during the scene where Lightning holds Gelatin to grab X out of Fries, there's text below where X's head is shown which says "definitely not x" (the easter egg can also be found in BFB 8 when Gelatin sees X on Fries).

Subscribe text

"SUBSCRIBE"

In several scenes, the word "SUBSCRIBE" appears commonly outside of the camera. In 9-3.fla when Gelatin bites X, there's written text to the right of the scene off-screen that says "SUBSCRIBE" that appears a frame before the scene switches.

In 9-4.fla when Donut gives X the job as a host, there's text below X saying "DO YOU LOVE TEXT? SUBSCRIBE". In 9-5.fla when X says "sorry", it appears on the picket fence to the right, with the word spread in individual letters on the top of each part. It appears for 1 frame to the right when Free Food agrees with strawberry cake, at the bottom when Stapy hears he got eliminated, on one of the tiles for 1 frame when Stapy walks away, and in 9-16.fla at the bottom in frame 166 and 183.

In 9-18.fla at the beginning, there's text to the left saying "@satomi add in the free food balls when you do the digging scene so its the same balls". This is most likely a note to add the balls in at a later date.

In 9-night (old fixed).fla, after Donut told X he did a good job, the letter "C" randomly appears at the bottom right outside of the camera.

Unused X line

In 9-4 when X questions if it's okay to have a regular cake, he says "sorry" with his right hand behind his back. There's a message onscreen saying "OMIT THIS WORD" when he says it, so the footage would be cut on that part.

Animatic

There's an animatic for 9-8.fla hidden in one of the layers at the top named "animatic."

Weird Donut

Dont
In 9-night (old fixed).fla in the scene after Donut told X he did a good job hosting, the body that was used when Donut was walking away contains him with tiny arms waving along with tiny eyes making an "O" mouth. This was probably a joke, as it was off-screen.

Enter the Exit

X's sigh

In 10-6.fla, after X talks about the contest and gets interrupted by Clock, he has a brief, soft sigh and a look of disappointment, in release he does the same, except being at the end of the fla, it was likely it was just muted.

Firey's unused line

In 10-8.fla, there is an unused "Grr..." said by Firey. There is text saying "OMIT GRR".

Hidden text and "SUBSCRIBE"

Much like the previous episode, the hidden "SUBSCRIBE" text are scattered throughout the Flash files.

Poorly drawn syringe

Poorly drawn syringe

offscreen syringe

In 10-8.fla, while Firey is holding the syringe with Four inside, offscreen there is a poorly drawn syringe.

Weird face

In 10-8.fla for a frame, there is a weird face.

This is X

This is X

In 10-12.fla, at the scene where Four is eliminating Loser while he's in the liar ball, there's unseen text written on X's half reading "This is X".

"Type [J] to waste your vote"

Waste your vote
In 10-14.fla there is a text that reads "Type [J] to waste your vote".

Blue Ball

In 10-18compf.fla, there is a character named blue ball who says "its me blue ball".

Blue Ball

Unrendered Images of The Exit with 3D models of characters

In the fla's for exit scenes, there are images of unrendered versions of The Exit that also contain 3D models of the characters that appear in that scene and their positioning. These images are rendered in fullbright, have multiple instances of the Blender camera model visible, and the 3D models shown are actually stuck on the image itself, so there are no actual "assets" of the 3D models; just images of scenes.

Some of the 3D models visible appear to be rather detailed and true to the assets made in Flash, like Roboty and Pencil's models, but most lack outlines and are basically unfinished; Leafy, Liy, Bracelety, and 8-Ball's models resemble the main assets minus details but lack outlines; Stapy consists of just two red blocks, Four is just a outlineless picture of himself and David is just a black stick figure with the legs slightly misplaced.

These images appear to be meant to be storyboards in some way to help with the positioning of characters and likely weren't meant to be used. Considering the detail on Pencil and Roboty's models though, it might be possible that the characters in EXIT were meant to be fully 3D modeled at some point in development, but this concept was scrapped.

Vote for Mario

In 11-1comp.fla, when Four enters the Exit some text can be seen off-screen that says "Hello" "Type an [M] to vote for Mario"

Unrendered Images of The Exit with 3D models of characters again

Just like Enter the Exit, there exists images of unrendered scenes in the Exit that contain 3D models of characters in the spots they appear in. These are present as .pngs in the .flas the scenes are filmed in, which likely indicates that everyone would have originally received slices of the Photo Cake and then would soon become CGI before the idea was cut.

Rule of thirds

Some scenes have invisible layers with a black 3x3 grid. This grid does not show up and it appears that the grid was used to help keep the sizes of the characters in the scene consistent.

Joshua

IMJOSHUA

In 12-11 there is a hidden drawing of a person saying "I'M JOSHUA" with a shirt and a star. He is fully transparent and stays there for the entire scene, despite this, he doesn't appear in the episode. Joshua is a contestant from Caedmon Johnson's object show that they cancelled, "Battle for Drawpile".

The version with Barf Bag, which can be found in 13-9.fla.

A partially unused file titled Diagrammers.png can be found in the episode .flas. It shows the contestants' assets in one color each stretched to the same resolution. For some reason, Ice Cube is shown twice and Barf Bag is missing. The rest of the contestant's icons were made, but unused thus far.

Hidden text "Subscribe"

Subscribe bfb13

Like in BFB 10, the text "Subscribe" appears offscreen. It appears in the scene 13-10.fla, right before the camera cuts to Firey Jr. getting eliminated.

AAAAAAAAAAAA

Unseen Dictionary Definitions

In the .flas of BFB 13, there are a few unseen entries in Book are present. Barf Bag's entry appears to foreshadow her losing her barf and eventual death, which appears to be part of the reason why BFB 13's files weren't released until after BFB 14 was released.

Naily's deleted line

In the files of BFB 14 during the scene where Coiny and Cake encounter Woody and Naily, Naily has a completely animated line that was cut. She says:

Naily

Well, I'm not Golf Ball, and real Golf Ball's dead, so... no.

It is possible the reason why the line was cut is because Naily's way of pronouncing "Golf Ball" was erroneous, sounding like "Gulf Ball". The line can be seen here.

Fortnite

OH MY GOD WHATY
Handwritten text saying "FORTNITE" can be found out of bounds in 13-67.fla.

Cat Turning its Head

Catturn

In 13-87.fla, there are images of a cat turning its head labeled "catturn1_*number*". It is possible that when Woody was falling down the stairs, a cat would have been shown looking at him.

The Escape from Four

Unrendered images of EXIT with 3D models of characters

As with "Enter the Exit" and "Get to the Top in 500 Steps" before it, the .fla of scenes 16-1, and 2 (EXIT scenes) contains unrendered images of The EXIT with 3D models of characters. The images are fully rendered instead of being fullbright for some reason, and 8-Ball's model has been squished. Two new placeholder models can be seen used for both Dora and the Liar Ball.

Storyboard Pieces

Alternate Ending Scene

There is an alternate fla for the part where Two tells the viewers to vote for someone to join TPOT, where he calmly says "TPOT" instead of excitedly shouting "The Power of Two!"

Weird Four

Cursed four bfb 16

When Ruby talks to Four before Four upgrades to a BFB, Four has a tiny face and limbs. This was probably a joke, as it was offscreen.

Two With an Ok Hand

16-20comp.fla 2020-03-27 7 30 30 PM
In 16-20.fla, when Taco is walking over to Four, if you remove Taco you can see that Two is doing the ok hand.

Two Poses

Screen Shot 2020-03-27 at 7.10.30 PM

Some parts of the episode have random sketches of Two, found in the .fla files due to them being off view from the main episode. One example is when Four is recovering Bottle, some of these sketches are present. A possible reason for these sketches is because an animator was practicing drawing Two's shape.

The TPOT Cast's Reactions to the Recommended Characters

TPOTCastReactionsToRCs

In 16-23comp2.fla, when the camera pans to the recommended characters for the first time, most of the TPOT cast originally looked at them after cheering (most of them with check-it eyes, only a few had a different expression or didn't react). Due to how fast and soon the pan occurred, however, only Remote's and Tree's reactions are seen, with the latter's only being visible for a single frame. The rest only react offscreen in the .fla file.

Blender’s Original Audition

In the .fla file for BFB 16, There’s an unused Blender audition that was slower than the one that appears in the episode.

Alternate Final 14 Cast Photo

Alternate Final 14

In 16-26comp-power.fla, there is an unused alternate cast photo of the final 14, this includes Ruby and Woody switching places. Woody was originally going to remain the same, staying as tiny, orange and dented.

Flower and the Train Station

20200528 230004
20200528 224629

On May 28th, 2020, Michael Huang shared a tweet showing off an unused sketch for a BFDI related thing from 2016. The sketch shows Flower hanging off something, in a rough landscape which according to an note, the sun rises backwards.

The most notable thing about the drawing is a depiction of what appears to be a railroad or roller coaster. The track that is shown has little support and is very twisty and windy. There is also a station situated high above the ground, with a ladder to climb up or down from it. The station itself is somewhat empty, but it does have what appears to be either a ticket booth or control shed.

It is unknown what these drawings relate to.

Games

This area lists content in the BFDI-related games that were never used.

BFDIA 5b

Unplayable characters

Despite the game allowing Book, Ice Cube, and Match to be playable, some characters are fully coded into the game, but are not playable. They are:

These characters are completely coded and all have unique abilities as well, possibly coded in advance for future usage.

Uncoded levels

Levels 1-53 are all coded and fully playable with ease. However, levels 54+ are all consisting of flashing backgrounds with no characters in sight. Progress in these levels is impossible and cannot be done without a download of 5b.swf and levels.txt.

Woody's Incredible Journey to the Escape from Eternal Terror

Availability

The game was uploaded to the bfdi.tv website in July of 2010. Since it was intended for use by Andrew Wang, its link was known by few. On January 1st, 2017, the game's existence was confirmed by a tweet on the jacknjellify Twitter account. It was later rediscovered online to the general public on October 15th, 2017. Michael Huang later said it was still unreleased, even after acknowledging the edited version of the game.[4] This confirms that the public was not intended to see the game, as the link was intended to be seen by few.

Unused enemies

In the files of the game, multiple unused enemy names are present, along with nonexistent coordinates that do not appear on the basic map without editing map.txt.

Comics and drawings

This area lists the unused or unseen articles of info in the drawings, comics, and other pre-BFDI content.

Total Firey Island

In Total Firey Island, there are 18 books in total, however only 9 of the 18 were uploaded in full to Carykh. Even though books 10-17 are unseen in full and only book 18's ending is seen, where Pencil had won the comic series.

Total Firey Points

Due to them only being seen once, only books 1 and 5 were seen partially. They were demonstrated to show the original storyboard of the first episode of BFDI, Take the Plunge. Books 2, 3 and 4 are unseen, and their existence is unconfirmed.

Firey (comic series)

Similarly to Total Firey Island and Total Firey Points having unseen books, Firey has a missing book, being number 3. (Book 1 could be considered unseen, but its existence is unconfirmed)
