Throughout the history of Battle for Dream Island, there exists content that was not generally intended to be seen, noticed, or otherwise was lost to the basic audience at one point in time. Content here could include items from the drawings (TFI, TFP), the show (BFDI, BFDIA, IDFB, BFB, TPOT), hidden content out of bounds in .fla files for animations, or other media that is BFDI related.

Please note that for all intents and purposes, none of the information documented is considered to be canon with the rest of the series.

Contents

Teams

Eggy was originally going to be in BEEP, and the contestant who was going to take her spot on The Losers! was Nickel or Roboty.[1]

Purple Face as the 64th contestant

It should've been purple face.png

Purple Face was originally going to take Loser's place, but Michael and Cary didn't know if it would add up to such a perfect number. Eventually, he was replaced with Loser because of Cary suggesting a character called Loser.

Loser's Design

On the same message about Purple Face, Loser was going to have his face in the same place as Blocky, but the crew didn't want a character in the same shape as Blocky. As a result, Michael thought Loser's face should be on the vertex of his body.

Nonexisty as a contestant

Nonexisty Deconfirmed.jpg

Nonexisty was briefly considered to be a contestant in BFB, but the crew shot down the idea because they agreed that he would be a waste of a slot.

Getting Teardrop to Talk

Swapped Genders

Screenshot 20200424-130901.jpg

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.png

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

Four's unused mouth

UNUSED FOUR LIPSYNC.PNG

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 were to appear on-screen during the scene, but they didn't.

Recovery Centers don't get sucked up?

Screenshot 20180809-180636.jpg

In a storyboard depicting the first part of the BFB intro, some notes are suggesting at one point, the recovery centers were not going to be sucked up by Black Hole. The idea was originally that the recovery centers 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

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!

It is unknown why this line exists. Gaty's death was possibly 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 lip-synced, and it is unknown why it was cut. A user found it, which it can be found here

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 silence, 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.jpg

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.jpg

In the scene where Pillow explains her research on arm fluttering, Pillow was supposed to say the F word. 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.png

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.png

After Lollipop tells Dora to shut her pie hole, Dora responds angrily. However, it appears that the actual dialogue for her was created. This was possibly 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".[2]

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.png

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

Fanny with arms

1587749896024.png

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.jpg

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, let's 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) 1, collect a lot of saliva. 2, dump the saliva onto the jawbreaker. 3, let it all sit for just a few seconds. 4, CHEOOOOOMP!!

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 line was cut:

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.jpg

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.jpg

Scrapped Thumbnail

Thumbnail0001.png

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.

Double dab

Bfb3storyb.png

After being told he's safe, Nickel told his teammates to dab, but no one listens.

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.jpg

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 a 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.[3][4]

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

Early Thumbnail

The original thumbnails for BFB 3 were different than the current thumbnail. These thumbnails show Book pushing the swings with Saw and Dora flying out of them. The first version isn't contrast, while the second version is contrast.


Today’s Very Special Episode

TV says Error

In 4-1.fla, when the intro's audio starts, it is stopped with an 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.

Marker's original RPS moves

In the storyboard, Marker was originally intended to play a five-pointed star instead of a house, alongside the Declaration of Independence rather than a hecatonicosahedroid.

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.jpeg

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.png

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.

Early Tennis Ball Icon.png

Old Tennis Ball Voting Icon

In 4-12.fla, the voting icon for Tennis Ball can be found, despite never being up for elimination. There are 3 differences in this early voting icon: 1, a leg is missing, 2, Tennis Ball is lower and 3, it's not saturated.

Fortunate Ben

Storyboard Piece

Screen Shot 2018-01-12 at 8.38.29 AM.png

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

Cake's Role

Cake Confirmed BFB 5.jpg

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. This part of the storyboard was intentionally cropped out in the BFB 4 storyboard video.

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.

Unused Liy Line

Schermafbeelding 2020-10-20 om 17.39.34.png

In the elimination, Liy was actually supposed to say:

Liy

Oh no, I'm in the bottom two? Hmmm, I said one pun two months ago so that should switch me from "not safe" to "safe".

Instead of:

Liy

Oh no! I'm in the bottom two? Hmm... I said one pun two months ago.. so voters should see me in a positive light!

Possible reasons why this line was changed was to keep it short and simple, or keep Liy more enthusiastic and in-character.

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.gif

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.png

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.

Top Hat was here

In 7.3.fla, there is a drawing of the head of TopHatTheHat's persona that is found in the symbol of the recommended character Duck Bill, next to the head says "Top Hat was here".

Top Hat was here.png

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.png

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 at the wrong time. It was cut because he thought it was dumb and conflicted with 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 about 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 supposed to tell Saw "Yeah, that's dangerous" after she inhaled the 8-Ball fumes, 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 supposed 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 that 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, but most people believe it's because Jacknjellify didn't want to suggest a "relationship" between these two characters..

Unused_gelatin_animation

Unused gelatin animation

Audio Changes

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

In the 8-12.fla file, Clock's voice is TTS-ish.

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.

[❤️] to eliminate scratch

In 8-9.fla, for one frame after Bubble answered zob-zap, there is text outside the borders that says "[❤️] to eliminate scratch"

8-9.fla 2020-06-15 5 36 09 PM.png

Floating Fries

After Stapy cheats, Fries's body floats onto his legs.

Fries Oh, I finally get it! Good job!.gif

This Episode Is About Basketball

Hidden text & "SUBSCRIBE"

"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"

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.PNG

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 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

offscreen syringe

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

Weird face

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

This is X.PNG

This is X

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

"Type [J] to waste your vote"

Waste your vote.jpg

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

Blue Ball

In 10-18compf.fla, when Leafy says her line, a part of Four's body has a poorly-drawn character saying "its me blue ball". Two extra non-colored drawings possibly resembling this also appear in the last two frames of this scene.

Unfinished Renders 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 are 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 an 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.

Get to the Top in 500 Steps

Vote for Mario

Maro.PNG

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 exist 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.

What Do You Think of Roleplay?

Storyboard Piece

Bitmap 4.png

A storyboard of Golf Ball doing a strange face dated July 6th, 2018 can be found in 12-7.fla.

Joshua

IMJOSHUA.PNG

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 canceled, "Battle for Drawpile".

Return of the Rocket Ship

ZOOM OUT I GUESS

11111.png

A note written out of bounds when Taco walks away from Barf Bag covering her "ears" can be seen, reading "ZOOM OUT I GUESS".

Diagrammers

Diagrammers.png

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.png

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.

Satomi Hinatsu insignias

Xxxxxx.png

The scene where Four and X stand there before X starts to descend into Earth has what appears to be Satomi's symbol out of bounds.

Satomi Symbol in 13-25dirty.png

In the file 13-25dirty.fla, a Satomi symbol can be seen out of bounds.

Evil Leafy Jumpscare Sound

In the file 13-25.fla, there's Evil Leafy's Jumpscare sound with Book, Ice Cube, and Spongy screaming. This is the same sound from Get Digging, except it's pitched down. This sound effect is Book, Ice Cube, and Spongy screaming. It is unknown why the sound effect was pitched down in Get Digging, but most likely to prevent it from being bland and just have Book, Ice Cube, and Spongy screaming.

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.

Don't Dig Straight Down

Storyboard Piece

BFB 14 Storyboard Fragment.png

A storyboard of Barf Bag and Gelatin dated May 22nd, 2019 can be found in the internal files.

Inverted Planet Planning Sketch

Weird Ground Thing.png

A sketch for the entrance to the Buried Forest, with Taco, Book and Lollipop sketches.

Balloony's unused facial expression

Balloony unused facial expression.png

In 13-71b.fla, the last two frames consist of Balloony making an angry expression which isn't seen in the episode.

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.

The reason why the line was cut maybe 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.png

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

Cat Turning its Head

Catturn.gif

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 Four is Lava

Storyboard Piece

Screen Shot 2019-11-25 at 4.26.52 AM.png

A storyboard featuring Death P.A.C.T. can be found, dated November 25th, 2019.

Unused images

In some .flas there are unused images like when Puffball is spinning Bell, Bell has a lot of images of her blurry than transforming to normal.

Satomi Symbols

Satomi Symbol in 15-04 candidate7.png

In the file 15-04_candidate7.fla, a symbol from Satomi can be seen offscreen.

Satomi Symbol in 15-12 candidate2.png

In the file 15-12_candidate2.fla, two symbols from Satomi can be seen offscreen.

Scrapped Needle Line

In 15-16.fla, there is a clip of Needle saying "I don't have time for this" before grabbing Coiny. It was never animated.

Scrapped Tennis Ball Line

The Escape from Four

Unrendered images of EXIT with 3D models of characters yet again

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 they calmly say "TPOT" instead of excitedly shouting "The Power of Two!"

Weird Four

Cursed four bfb 16.png

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.

bfb here?

You can see a white text with a black background saying, “bfb here?” in front of a BFB offscreen.

Two's Poses

Screen Shot 2020-03-27 at 7.10.30 PM.png

Some parts of the episode have random sketches of Two, found in the .fla files due to them being off the 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.png

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.

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.

A bizarre image of what appears to be an abstract shape is present in the episode files. It's unknown what could this have been used for, let alone if it was related to the episode or it's production at all.

30 recommended characters up for debut for TPOT

At one point, there was originally going to be 30 recommended characters up for debut for TPOT instead of 26. Cake Pop, a recommended character, was also going to be one of the recommended characters up for debut. This was mentioned by Cary at the near end of his BFB 22 reaction.[5]

Early Thumbnail

Static-assets-upload2688887662803411850.png

In the BFB Patreon Only Discord Server, Satomi posted the original thumbnail of BFB 16. It looks different than the current thumbnail, as it showed Pencil and Match looking at the liar ball, and the arrow instead saying "SECRETS?"

Liy escaping the EXIT

Liy was going to be on TPOT.jpg

Liy was originally going to escape the EXIT with Loser and Spongy. While Loser and Spongy did escape in the final episode, Liy was planned to escape it as well and go to TPOT. However, this was scrapped for unknown reasons, possibly to continue the story with Liy and the door at the back of the EXIT.
