See BFDI wiki for detailed canon info.

Spongy is a male contestant on Battle for Dream Island, as well as Battle for Dream Island Again. He was known for being one of the least loved contestants from BFDI because he smells bad and he is fat.

He was considered a hindrance to the Squishy Cherries overall (as seen in him being thrown off the boat in Take the Plunge: Part 2 for weighing too much). He would be eliminated in Episode 3 with 4 votes, after being in the bottom 2 with Woody. After successfully beating the other losers in a bread loaf contest in episode 14 at the last second, with 38 loaves of bread, 7 more than Flower, second place, so he returned to the game. In episode 22, he accidently crushed the Announcer, so Firey and Flower brought their replacement boxes to replace him, known as Firey Speaker Box and Flower Speaker Box, but also known by other names. Firey Speaker Box becomes the host of BFDI. Spongy was eliminated in episode 23. Spongy is one of the 22 objects to get in BFDIA, as he placed 7th in the voting overall. His voice is very deep and muffled, because he's fat and chubby.


Spongy is a large rectangular washing sponge, his main body is vivid gold, and his holes and outlines are dark yellow; he also has a lot of bumpy edges. In between BFDIA and IDFB, his shading becomes darker.


Spongy is not very well-received among the contestants. They typically have little regard for his wants and, more often than not, consider him a hindrance or dead-weight during challenges. Even his alleged friends, such as Barf Bag, seem to not actually know much about him.

Spongy himself is somewhat of a gentle giant; kind, caring, open, and emotional. He could be described as sensitive, as he has cried in "Get in the Van". However, he often prioritizes his own safety and well-being when offered a chance to hurt himself to benefit his team, as seen in "Don't Dig Straight Down", where Spongy refused to give up his seat so that his teammates could escape to safety.
