Firey and Tennis Ball have seen to have a minor friendship during the Merge. However, in the episode where Coiny was eliminated, Tennis Ball and Firey became enemies when Firey "had to keep slapping," but from Coiny and David. However, in Season 2, they seemed to become minor friends again.
Episodes suggesting a friendship
- In Puzzling Mysteries, Tennis Ball voted for Firey to join his team.
- In Bowling, Now with Explosions!, Firey doesn't dock any of Tennis Ball's points.
- In The Reveal, Firey and Tennis Ball are partners by default after the others choose their own. They get 3rd place in the challenge, and win 15 points.
- In Reveal Novum, the episode where Tennis Ball was eliminated, Firey stated that he voted for Ice Cube because she was his "opposite". A theory goes that he actually voted for Ice Cube so he won't have to vote for Tennis Ball and Leafy because they were his friends.
- In Zeeky Boogy Doog, Firey recovered Tennis Ball with the HPRC.
- Both Firey and Tennis Ball were at top of the Eiffel Tower in Zeeky Boogy Doog.
- They also both made the same joke and was frozen by Book on the same tower.
Episodes suggesting a conflict
- Firey picked Tennis Ball to slap because he "had to keep slapping".
- When slapped again by Firey, Tennis Ball said to Firey "That's it, I'm not working with you," which suggests that they were working together in the past.
- In The Reveal, Firey chose Tennis Ball instead of Leafy for the frisbee contest, but that was because there was no one left. Likewise, Tennis Ball chose Rocky over Firey probably because him and Rocky have more similiarities to each other.
