~ - Woody in multiple episodes.

See BFDI wiki for detailed canon info.

Woody, labeled The A-Plus, is a contestant in Battle for Dream Island. In BFDIA, Woody failed to join with 266 votes, either way, he was deceased during the time making him disqualified.

He is as his name suggests, wood. Not necessarily one, but a type that's called a balsa. One that's quite light-weighted referencing to his fragile appearance and lack of physical strength.

Woody was eliminated in the episode Bridge Crossing, as he lost the game in all of the three turns, making him the lowest ranking contestant in BFDI. He eventually appeared in the finale, rooting for Leafy to win (but unfortunately Firey did).

He returns in IDFB, alive probably after being revived in the events of The Long-lost Yoyle City.


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 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.

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 that 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.

Woody developed panophobia (afraid of everything), probably not at a young age, if not probably during an event causing this.

Despite his phobia, he is heard to often be either screaming or showing a sign for panicking. Many have bullied him because of this and yet he has lacked social skills and is usually considered useless, despite his fears.

Notably, he's also afraid of others that are physically weaker than him, for example, Bubble, sometimes even afraid of things such as the number 5 or the color grey, which is harmless. This can also be an example of his childish behavior. Either way, he's gentle, friendly, and soft-hearted. Though despite his soft nature, he can also be violent if out-of-character whereas he slaps Needle when voting for Firey.

In BFB 8, he developed anti-phobia.

In Infinity Gag, Woody now likes Pin.


Woody and Leafy barely interact, but when they do, they are frequently on good terms with each other. Leafy at first, gave Woody a chance to live his life happily (which did not turn out so well). Though the only time where they are shown to not be in a friendly term with each other is where Leafy chooses Rocky over Woody.

In The Return of the Hang Glider (Part 1), Woody roots for Leafy to win over Firey and Bubble and also slaps those of who do not support Leafy in the finale.

In Getting Teardrop to Talk, Leafy can be seen talking to Woody when Golf Ball is looking for her. She later chooses Woody to be on her team and says that his team name idea is catchy. When Leafy tells Four that they'd like to start competing, Leafy says "Right Woody!" and Woody makes a noise in agreement.

In Lick Your Way to Freedom, Leafy and Woody both yell for Roboty to find him. Woody's loyalty number is 6 on Leafy's chart. Later, Woody has his tongue pulled on by Leafy twice, because Leafy wanted to use his tongue to lick the jawbreakers. The moment that truly made Woody not like Leafy anymore is when she pops Balloony as he's seen frowning when this happens.

In Get to the Top in 500 Steps, Woody, along with the rest of what remained of Beep, backed away from Leafy when Four announced that she had rejoined.

In How Loe Can You Grow?, Leafy witnesses Woody burning to death and is shocked.

In Let's Raid The Warehouse, Leafy asks Woody if he remembers when she said "There's a life out there to enjoy, so enjoy it!". Leafy admits to him that sometimes she isn't in the right mindset to enjoy the things she use to, and says that's natural and OK. She continues, saying that things will get better even if they seem like they aren't right now, Woody happily agrees.

Ice Cube

In The Glistening, Woody voted for Ice Cube to be eliminated, along with most of the contestants.

In IDFB 1, Woody is accidentally set on fire due to Bomby's explosion. Ice Cube risks her life by extinguishing Woody, but then Ice Cube dies from the flames. It's unknown if Woody died or not.


Tennis Ball

Tennis Ball and Woody rarely interacted, so their relationship is barely explored.

In Take The Plunge (Part 1), when Woody was kicked by Teardrop, Tennis Ball told Teardrop to calm down. Though in the obstacle course, he shows no sign of concern when Woody is about to collide with Rocky.


Woody is afraid of fire, but either way, they both never interacted throughout the series (they have but barely shows any contact with each other).

In Let's Raid The Warehouse, Firey figures a box is the perfect gift for Woody since he could use it to hide from whatever it is that might be scaring him. Later they worked together to find gifts for Woody and Flower. They both also prematurely celebrate their victory, thinking Woody would love his gift. When Blocky says "The Woody in our heads", Firey takes this literally, asking Blocky if he has a little Woody in his head. When Firey takes Blocky's "Woody in our heads" metaphor literally, Blocky gives him an annoyed look.



Blocky takes advantage of Woody's soft nature and is bullying him for enjoyment, though sometimes he can get serious and kicks Woody for real. He never tolerates Woody and continues to insult him wherever he can.

Woody generally dislikes Blocky, as seen in the beginning, Blocky quickly latches onto Woody but not in a good way. Throughout the series, Blocky is shown to have violently kicked Woody several times and has bullied him most of the time. When Woody receiving more votes than him in the final rejoining ceremony, Blocky angrily kicks Woody in jealousy.

Overall, Blocky and Woody are not friends in which, they both dislike each other.

In How Loe Can You Grow?, Blocky chases Woody and then kicks him into the air. He later was about to get Woody to enter Spongy's spaceship, forgetting that he kicked him earlier. Then Taco tells Blocky that Woody is missing because he kicked him into the air, he admits that he misses him.

In Let's Raid The Warehouse, Blocky tells his team to raise their hands if they want to be receivers. Woody does so nervously, but Blocky ignores him. Blocky allows Flower to be one, since she spoke up, and gets annoyed that no one else is volunteering. Taco then points out to Blocky that Woody has had his hand up the whole time. Blocky shows he was aware and didn't pick Woody because of how meekly he was raising his hand.

On the train ride, Taco determines that Blocky has been in a bad mood because Woody got to have his way. When Taco asks what gift Woody would like, Blocky finds some spiky gloves and says Woody would like one to the face. Blocky shows that he remembers Woody being afraid of the color gray and bubbles, and suggests getting him a box. Likely because Blocky's spent most of the series bullying Woody, he acts noticeably indifferent to Taco complimenting him and Firey for being empathetic to Woody. When they get back home, Blocky hands Woody his gift and prematurely celebrates, thinking he would love it. Just then, Blocky is shocked and angered that Woody hates his cardboard box, telling Woody it was supposed to be the perfect gift for him. For the first time, Woody fights back at Blocky, making noise about the awful gift. Blocky gets angrier, calling Woody a crybaby, since Woody made them lose the challenge, and grabs him, but gets stopped by Bubble before he can do anything. After some convincing, Blocky realized that the gift he gave Woody was insulting to him, alluding that he wants to change his attitude towards Woody.

In Who Stole Donut's Diary?, when Lollipop asks Woody what he was doing at the time the diary was stole, he decides to prank them and say he was doing sailing lessons. Blocky is amazed and happy by this, that he uses his first time being understood to prank everyone. They then proceed to high five.


Woody and Pin are not in good terms with each other except in BFB it's the opposite. At the beginning of the series, Pin shows disgust towards Woody, despite his fear of everything. Woody, on the other hand, has a fear of sharp things, in which that includes Pin and Needle.

In Barriers and Pitfalls, Pin doesn't care about Woody at all and just carry on without him. When he's about to climb her, she shows extreme disgust and shoves Woody out of the way, resulting to his loss.

In Are You Smarter than a Snowball?, Woody is shown to be quite anxious and Pin does nothing but continues to bully Woody, kicking him in the process which results a hole (that Woody unintentionally made). After this episode, they barely interacted.

In Bridge Crossing, Woody was eliminated, which overjoys Pin.

Love Interests


In Take The Plunge (Part 1), Woody is shown to have a sign of affection towards Teardrop, in which Teardrop does not. Despite this, Teardrop violently kicks Woody in annoyance. After this, they both aren't in good terms and does not interact any further.

In Take The Tower, Woody screams when he sees Teardrop running in his direction. She then sabotages Woody by flinging him off the bracelet.


In Infinity Gag, Woody is shown to have a sign of affection towards Bubble, in which Bubble does the same.

In Take The Plunge (Part 2), Pin reveals that Woody is afraid of Bubble.

In Let's Raid The Warehouse, which marks their first direct interaction, Bubble defends Woody from Blocky, and tells Woody that she knows the struggle he's going through. Woody is also shocked when Bubble is popped by Flower.
