What, did you DO, WITH LOSER??
 

Balloony was the one of the 30 recommended characters that had a chance at joining the game during The Reveal and Reveal Novum. However, he failed to get into the game, receiving only 6 votes and placing 21st.

Balloony also had a chance to join BFDIA, but placed 32nd with only 102 votes, and he was flung to the LOL. He later made a cameo in Get in the Van when Firey was talking to Gelatin, where he was standing inside the LOL.

Balloony is now a contestant on Battle for BFDI, and is on Beep. He is currently dead, as he died in The Liar Ball You Don't Want and hasn't been recovered.

Balloony’s appearances varied with each different version that was recommended. The body that appeared in Episode 18 resembled Inanimate Insanity's Balloon.

Balloony's IDFB redesign features a wobbly and flexible string, and his balloon is now jade instead of green. Balloony, along with the other characters in the TLC, had a chance to debut in IDFB, but he never had the chance to join since IDFB never continued, and he didn't get enough votes to join IDFB, with 71 votes.[1]

Appearance

Balloony appears to be a balloon, with an unknown type of air in it. Balloony's body is jade, his shading is emerald, and his shine is mint. His body is a thin line like Flower's, but he is made in a curvy shape to look like the string of a balloon. Unlike Flower’s body, the string is a part of his asset.

Personality

Balloony is a generally kind character, but he won't take attitude from other characters, and can become irritable towards bossy teammates. Balloony has proven to be smart and good at problem-solving, similar to Tennis Ball. When deflated, he isn't capable of too much movement, let alone being able to even stand.

Coverage

In Getting Teardrop to Talk, after Flower gets Black Hole to move towards the Earth, Balloony asks her what she did before getting sucked up by him. When Four appears, he revives him, much to his happiness. He's picked out by Leafy to be on her team, despite not needing her help. He manages to successfully get their team's basket back to X by deflating himself, making their team safe.

In Lick Your Way to Freedom, he stays deflated for the whole episode. He tells David to start licking the jawbreaker, but he refuses. He uses Rocky's acid to melt a jawbreaker, saying that his vomit was salt and vinegar flavored. He is popped while being inflated by Leafy at the ending.

In Why Would You Do This on a Swingset, he is finally revived by Four and receives the least amount of votes to be eliminated. He receives an Earth, which he pokes, seemingly crushing Four. He asks if Rocky is safe, and when he is, Balloony tells him that everyone liked salt and vinegar. When Cloudy is about to vomit due to realizing a man looks like David, he gets excited and expects more salt and vinegar. He is happy about Leafy getting eliminated, as there will be no more rules for the team to follow as a result. During the challenge, he, Nickel and Roboty, come up with the plan to have Cloudy push the swing around fifty times so that the team can be safe.

In Today's Very Special Episode, he gets angry at David for not liking how they made their 4 cake.

In Fortunate Ben, during the flying contest, he makes a sarcastic comment about David being good at piloting. When the plane starts falling due to the weight, Balloony mentions not to hit the cliff, because doing so will cause them to be the first to hit the ground. He tries to come up with a way to change the air flow, and Woody dabs. Balloony thinks this is a genius idea and the whole team starts dabbing. Balloony thinks this isn't enough and is relieved when David finally wakes up. However, they don't make it over the cliff, and hit the ground and losing the contest. This causes the team to be up for elimination.

In Four Goes Too Far, Four calls their team "Beep Beep". Balloony says that wasn't their team name, and Roboty beeps twice after that wasn't helping. This time, the amount of votes Balloony receives is in the middle, and he gets turned orange as a prize. When Four gets multiplied by zero (Donut), he asks how they will know whether David or Roboty will be eliminated. After finding out Roboty has the most votes, he starts to say how he'll miss Roboty before realizing he has disappeared and asks where he is with a shout.

In The Liar Ball You Don't Want, Balloony carries Rocky out of the elimination area. After Cake at Stake, he asks what Donut did with Loser. When Donut simply tells him he eliminated him, Balloony angrily repeats the question. In the challenge, Balloony is the first to get the Liar Ball, but is then popped by Stapy, causing him to be absent in Questions Answered and This Episode Is About Basketball.
