— Woody, multiple occasions on Battle for Dream Island
Despite having three objects eliminated before him, Woody finished in last place on the first season due to Blocky rejoining in "Insectophobe's Nightmare", Spongy rejoining in "Half a Loaf Is Better Than None", and Flower rejoining in "The Glistening"— all of whom placed lower than Woody originally.
Woody is defined by his fear of almost everything, though this trait would subdue in later seasons. Woody is also notable for his inability to speak in full sentences; he usually communicates through mumbling, yelling, and single words. Once again, he would showcase an ability to speak in full sentences in later seasons, albeit rarely.
In "Return of the Hang Glider", Woody died of a heart attack caused by his fear of the color gray in an Announcer Transportation Device. Due to this, as well as only receiving 266 votes and placing 27th, Woody was unable to join BFDIA. His absence, however, made him one of the characters who were free from the TLC in IDFB.
He starred in his own top-down perspective adventure game, Woody's Incredible Journey to the Escape from Eternal Terror.
Woody appears to be a thick piece of balsa wood, which is a type of wood used in crafts and woodworking. Because of this, it is a softwood, meaning that Woody is very fragile (which was stated by Tennis Ball.) His outer part is tan-like, while his inside is a beige-ish-taupe. Woody had an orange color with a dent from Bell in BFB 7. He also lost a piece of himself after colliding with Rocky in "Take The Plunge Part 1", in which he never gained back, even after being recovered.
Battle for Dream Island
- IDFB 1: Woody's outlines are a little darker.
Battle for BFDI
- BFB 6-7: Woody is orange.
- BFB 7-14: Woody is dented.
- BFB 14-16: Woody is small.
- BFB 16+: Woody is back to normal size, and is not orange or dented.
Woody is known for having panophobia (the fear of everything), as is the case in BFDI as he was paranoid and always appeared to be nervous. He also gets picked on and pushed around by contestants like Pin, Blocky, and Flower and then became brave in This Episode Is About Basketball and Don't Dig Straight Down.
In BFB, however, Woody isn't as paranoid as he used to be and does a better job at socializing with his team. Although he is still known for being afraid and insecure, he seems to have grown more confident over time, even to the point of making his first kill in "The Liar Ball You Don't Want". He is a loyal teammate and tries to be helpful, but his fear often gets in the way of helping his team.
In Let's Raid The Warehouse, Woody is shown to get angry as he was given a box to hide in. However, it was insulting him and he did not want it, alluding that he is becoming more courageous than before.
He also mainly either speaks gibberish or doesn't speak at all, but can speak coherently at times.
Official Character Guide biography
Woody is a piece of balsa wood who breaks easily. Woody is afraid of almost everything, including sharp things, fire (ouch), and even bubbles. Eep!
Woody can actually speak but usually doesn't communicate in full words. He makes friends with those who make him feel comfortable. He and Roboty seem to have a connection.
Did You Know?: Woody has never been reunited with the splinter that fell off of him when he and Rocky collided.
Because Woody mainly speaks gibberish and not comprehensible words most of the time, instances of Woody not speaking coherently in that episode won't be listed. However, instances of Woody speaking comprehensible words will be pointed out.

Battle for Dream Island
In "Take the Plunge: Part 1", Woody is first shown when Blocky kicks him away. Once he lands, Leafy encourages him to go out and enjoy life. Woody then shows signs of love for Teardrop, who angrily kicks him away. Woody lands on top of Rocky, and a chip of him falls out, causing him to scream very loudly in pain or shock. Later in the episode, he is pushed off the balance beam by Flower.
In "Take the Plunge: Part 2", Woody is the last one to be picked for a team, and he ends up on Pin's team, the Squishy Cherries. Pin displays her disgust of choosing Woody by barfing on him. Later, when their ship capsizes, he jumps onto Spongy.
In "Barriers and Pitfalls", Woody tries to climb up Pin to get through the obstacle course when she gets stuck on the pole blocking the way. Pin, however, angrily slaps him away. He almost crashes into Rocky, but Tennis Ball kicks Rocky away, causing Woody to fall off the side and into the Failer's waiting room.
In "Are You Smarter Than a Snowball?", Woody is in the bottom two for the elimination but is safe regardless with 3 votes. Later on, Woody is revealed to have Testophobia as Pin notices him staring at his test and gaping in terror. Infuriated, Pin kicks him away, and he makes a huge hole in the ground that Coiny, Eraser, and Tennis Ball all fall into at a later point.
In "Sweet Tooth", Woody is once again in the bottom two to be eliminated. However, he is yet again safe with 4 votes. Later on, Woody is scared of baking his cake, so Match offers Leafy five dollars to help Woody. However, he doesn't score well, likely due to the overabundance of the same strawberry cake being served.
In "Bridge Crossing", Woody is eliminated from the competition, meaning he cannot win Dream Island. Woody originally sighs when the Announcer first says his name, thinking he would be safe. However, he instead tells him he is eliminated at 9 votes, which causes him to panic.
In "Cycle of Life", it is announced that a loser will be returning. Woody's campaign at the end of the episode is simply making noises.
In "Half a Loaf Is Better Than None", Woody, along with the rest of the eliminated contestants, gets a chance to re-enter the game. Woody does poorly in the rejoin challenge, bringing in only four loaves of bread before sinking into the basket of bread. At the end of the episode, Woody, along with Pin, Golf Ball, Needle, and Coiny is still trapped.
In "Vomitaco", the breadbasket Woody drowned in is tipped into the TLC, resulting in him falling in with the bread. Pin, Needle, Coiny, and Teardrop also fall in.
In "Reveal Novum", Woody is only seen briefly when Golf Ball calls out Blocky for wanting to escape despite rejoining, and when the sun saves the eliminated contestants from drowning.
In "The Glistening", Woody starts the episode by voting for Ice Cube to be eliminated. Woody only receives 29 votes to return. Blocky kicks Woody and they are both sent to the TLC.
In "Insectophobe's Nightmare 2", Woody and the rest of the losers are eaten by bugs, unless the eliminated contestants also fake their deaths. Woody is briefly seen cheering when the TLC teleports away, releasing him and the other eliminated contestants. He then begins shrieking seconds later when it is teleported right back to where it was, re-trapping him.
In "Return of the Hang Glider", Woody is released from the TLC and votes for Leafy to win. When Needle and Match do not vote for Leafy, Woody slaps the two, despite his anxieties. This may show that he is overcoming his panophobia (fear of everything). After Firey wins Dream Island, Woody is let in along with everyone else except Leafy. He panics when the Announcer reveals that it was sold. Afterward, Woody is abducted in a UFO, along with Snowball, Match, and Tennis Ball. Woody can be heard possibly dying offscreen when Match struggles to flip up the switch that was making the UFO fly. After the UFO crash lands, Tennis Ball reveals to Snowball that Woody died long before they landed, due to his fear of the color gray giving him a heart attack. Woody is presumably dead forever since Flower has destroyed all of the recovery centers.
Battle for Dream Island Again
In "Yeah, Who? I Wanna Know", Woody only receives 266 votes to join the season and therefore does not compete in BFDIA. Even if he had gotten enough votes, he still would not have joined because he is still dead.
A small Woody is at the top of the thumbnail for "Zeeky Boogy Doog", despite the fact that he makes no appearance. The wheel also has a contest that says "Bring Woody back to life".
In "Welcome Back", Woody makes a re-appearance, though it's unclear how and when was he recovered. Woody is seen on fire, so Ice Cube sacrifices her life to extinguish him. However, it is unknown whether Woody dies or not in this scene.
Battle for BFDI
In "Getting Teardrop to Talk", he can be seen with Leafy when Golf Ball is looking for her and is in the crowd of characters who love Loser. Woody is picked out by Leafy to join her team so that she can help him. His team's name ends up being Beep. Woody's team is safe when Balloony deflates himself getting their basket to X. Woody also screams at Balloony's body when he lands in front of him.
In "Lick Your Way to Freedom", Woody yells for Roboty when the team cannot find him (his call is low pitched from Roboty's location, making him sound like Blocky or Eraser). Woody attempts to lick a jawbreaker that has been vomited on by Rocky and screams. Leafy grabs his tongue while he is screaming but it gets pulled back into his mouth. Later on, he screams again when Roboty is crushed, allowing Leafy to grab his tongue again and use it to lick a jawbreaker, but she loses hold when his tongue retracts. When Four pranks Leafy's team into thinking they are safe, Nickel tells Woody to dab — which he does until Four reveals they are up for elimination. His dab may have contributed to some of his votes later. Woody is last seen frowning after Leafy pops Balloony.
In "Why Would You Do This on a Swingset", Woody is safe with 2,010 votes. He does nothing in the challenge.
In "Today's Very Special Episode", Woody's voice is heard when Naily falls from Bell's string. When the scene pans to show Clock and Naily, the latter is shown to be impaling Woody. Later, he grabs a fork which was about to hit Four and gives his team's cake to him. In the flashback, Woody is seen spreading the filling for his team's cake.
In "Fortunate Ben", when Beep's paper airplane is about to hit to the ground, Balloony says that there's no way to change the airflow to steer it away. Woody hears this and gets the idea to dab to manipulate the airflow using his arms, changing the angle of the plane's fall. The next shot of the team shows them following Woody's example and all of the team members with arms or legs are dabbing, besides David, who is asleep. He then falls face flat onto the cliff's ground with the rest of the team, putting them up for elimination.
In "Four Goes Too Far", Woody is in the bottom three for elimination, but is safe with 2,514 votes, and is turned orange. In the contest, Woody catches the Twinkle of Contagion once during the heart scene.
In "This Episode Is About Basketball", it is up to Woody to save his team from elimination since he is the only living team member with functional arms. He builds up the courage to throw one ball into the basket, but Death P.A.C.T. still finishes first, causing Beep to be up for elimination.
In "Enter the Exit", Woody is safe from elimination with 2,026 votes - the second least of the six who were up for voting.
In "Get to the Top in 500 Steps", Woody, along with the rest of the team (except Rocky), back away from Leafy when she is brought back into the game.
In "What Do You Think of Roleplay?", Woody is seen screaming as Nickel is trying to scare him with a fork to make sure that he is real. Balloony is upset with Nickel and after fighting over the fork, Balloony is popped, which scares Woody. “Rocky” says that the sound was loud and the team finds out that “Rocky” is the impostor.
In "Return of the Rocket Ship", Woody is seen falling with the rest of Beep. After being blown into a hole by iance, Woody shakes Rocky while saying "wuh wuh". Balloony figures out that Woody was saying something about salt and vinegar. Woody begins to smile. As Balloony starts to cause a lot of commotion while shaking Rocky, Woody's smile turns into a frown. After Rocky barfs out acid, Nickel tells Woody to "tongue it", which he does. The team continues falling through the hole.
In "Don't Dig Straight Down", Woody continues to fall with his team. They avoid lava and acid and land, minus Nickel, who had been eaten by Rocky, but alongside Naily, on the border of Golf Ball's Underground Factory. Woody and Naily are the only ones to make it into the factory, as the remaining members of Beep are scorched to death in the lava. Naily and Woody run to the stairs of the factory to reach the surface, unaware that it is covered in lava. As they run, Naily apologizes to Woody for stabbing him in her audition and he gladly accepts the apology. The two run into Coiny and Cake on their way up, who informs them that the surface is also dangerous. Thus, the four are trapped in the factory, until Woody spots a garbage chute. Woody helps Cake and Naily throw Coiny at it. The latter unscrews it but falls into the lava afterward. The remaining three lament his loss, but Cake and Naily realize that there is more trouble: they will not fit into the garbage chute. However, Woody will. They reassure him that he will be safe, bid him a sad goodbye, and throw him at the chute. He looks back sadly as they burn to death and then slide through the chute. He falls past the Waterfall, reminding him of Roboty, and then into the world of "BFDI APPISIOTE 225555555!!!!!" (where he is credited as "WOODY&&&&&&("), and finally onto a black circle in a white void. Beneath it, he finds an emerald, saving his team from elimination. As Woody celebrates, the view zooms out to reveal that Woody is actually in Four's eyeball. He remains there for the remainder of the episode.
In "The Four is Lava", Woody is still inside of Four's eyeball until Flower pushes a button that flushes the lava through Golf Ball's Underground Factory's Deprecated Garbage Chute to the waterfall. This causes the lava to flow in Four's eyeball and Woody bursts out, riding the emerald to avoid burning and making his team safe. He also stays at a very small size.
In "The Escape from Four", Woody at first chooses to be on Two's show but switches back to Four after the prize is upgraded to A BFB, making him one of the 14 remaining BFB contestants. Woody, along with Four and his thirteen opponents, is zapped by Two to a different area to compete. The effect of button Two used to teleport him gets rid of his orange coloring and dent and changes him back to his normal size.
In "X Marks the Spot", Woody is kicked into the air by Blocky and is put on the X Colored Team on landing. During the challenge, he makes some noises, which Taco translates as him being scared that they won't be able to get X. His team is safe from elimination thanks to Loser's x marks the spot strategy, which was just caused by the opposite team.
In "Take the Tower", Woody is first seen getting splashed on by the water from Spongy's body. During the challenge, Woody is forced to walk on the friendship bracelet by Blocky. Woody gets scared along the way to which Taco tells him not to look down and to keep looking straight on. Woody decides to look ahead like Taco said, only to see Teardrop running to him, which makes him even more scared. He is then flung off the bracelet because of her. His team is up for elimination due to Flower breaking their team tower after being pushed off by Taco. Later in the stinger, Woody appears scared until Ruby greets him. He is then invited into the FreeSmart SuperVan.
In "How Loe Can You Grow?", Woody is the second safe in Cake at Stake at 10,812 votes. Woody is kicked off-screen by Blocky. Blocky asks where Woody is, and Taco says he's still in the air from when Blocky kicked him. Blocky replies he seemed to "miss" the little guy, Taco suggests being more gentle with him. Later, Woody comes back down and lands on a burning aloe vera, causing him to burn and disintegrate into ashes. He is absent for the rest of the episode. His team is safe due to the laser from Spongy's ship making the sun grow, making the aloe vera grow faster.
In "A Taste of Space", Woody is recovered by Four. In the challenge he helps his team rotate the earth by running in place. He later causes his team to lose points for sighing and even more for screaming. His team ends up losing the contest since they had less points and failed to cool down X.
In "Let's Raid The Warehouse", Woody is the second safe in Cake at Stake, with 10,646 votes. Woody nervously volunteers to be a receiver for his team. While waiting for his gift, Woody seems to make amends with Leafy when she talks with him. The shoppers arrive back, giving Woody a box, saying that he could use it to hide when he gets scared. However, Woody finds it offensive and crushes it. His rating of it is 0/10, which causes the Have Nots to lose.
