See BFDI wiki for detailed canon info.

Match is a contestant on Battle for Dream Island and is placed on Team Squishy Cherries. She is also a contestant in Battle for Dream Island Again, and Battle for BFDI. She is 5' 3" tall (8' 4" according to "If Among Us Was a BFDI Challenge")

She also competes in a fanfic character and is placed in Team Islanders.


Match appears to be a matchstick. Her flammable part is red, and her wooden part is light tan.


Match has the personality of a stereotypical teenage girl, mostly conveyed through her repeating the word "like", and the fact that she is friendly to some contestants, but mean and exclusionary to others. She has an unbreakable bond with Pencil, as she never argues with her. She calls her nicknames, and they seem to have been friends with each other before BFDI started.

However, with other contestants, she can be very harsh, judgmental, and seems to disrespect them; this is further supported when she insulted and kicked Book and Ice Cube, the "alternates", out of her alliance, and she had a long aversion towards Spongy until BFB 5. This rude, inconsiderate behavior can even affect her own teammates, as she has criticized them harshly on many past occasions.

Her most disliked player is Spongy (until "Fortunate Ben"), as seen when she was playing "Spongy Cake" in "Are You Smarter Than a Snowball?" and "Crybaby!". She feels he smells bad and is too overweight, coupled with the fact that in "Barriers and Pitfalls", Spongy was weighing down the chairlift needed to progress through the challenge.

In BFB, Match appears to have several mood swings. In "The Liar Ball You Don't Want" and "Fortunate Ben", she is shown to be nicer to Flower and Spongy, complimenting Flower's fashion sense and playing Spongy Cake with Spongy. However, in "Questions Answered", she makes fun of Bubble's weight and even yells at her for getting the challenge answers wrong, and even demotes her again, this time to a "bemb". Match later explains to Bubble that she was trying to act more like Pencil, but Bubble chastises her for her harsh behavior and how that kind of leadership only ends up hurting people. This implies Match lacks the self-awareness to see the consequences of her actions.

Match first appears in the iPencil.2O episode 'Love at First Party!' during Grade 9. She first appears with Pencil as a new student from Canada, due to some problems there. She is introduced as Match Anastasía Schreiber-Zapalka. Pencil is then her best friend. Later, Pencil gets a letter from Match and her family that says she's having her 14th birthday party and also a sleepover. Mrs Triángolo drives Pencil to Match's house, and? Match tells Pencil about her family, such as her nephews Jayden and Hayden and Grandpa Cornelius, as well as her brothers Eraser(?) and Pen. Meanwhile, her mum tells the girls that the dinner is beavertail. (or fried dough in the USA) Everyone says that it's delicious. That night, Pencil has a dream that she and Pen got married, honeymooned in Mexico and had six children (which was strangely accurate) and Pen dreamt the nearly exact thing. She didn't tell Match, however. As the series progresses, Match learns that Pencil and Pen are dating, and then Match and Pencil are temporarily enemies for just that one episode. The next episode, Match becomes more tolerant about the relationship. Later in the series, Match grows to be more mature about things by having a crush on Firey. In the climbing Mt Kilimanjaro contest in Season 4, Firey finally admits his love for Match, but moves on to Leafy that next season. Her behavior generally becomes more stable until Pencil vs. Batman. Also, She is a good friend to Pencil.
