— Liy, Lick Your Way to Freedom
Liy (pronounced ˈlaɪˌi) is a contestant in the Battle for BFDI. She originally appeared as a character in the joke video "BFDI APPISIOTE 225555555!!!!!", in which she is brown and white instead of light blue, with this appearance returning in Fortunate Ben when she is eliminated.
Pre-Battle for BFDI
Battle for BFDI
Liy made her animated debut in "Getting Teardrop to Talk". In it, she asked Tree to hold Teardrop's jaw open while she fiddles with her vocal cords in hopes of making her talk. Tree declines the offer and "leaves". Ice Cube later appears, and Liy asks if she is cool. Ice Cube is unsure, but Leafy interjects and says Ice Cube is cool, along with everyone else. Liy asks Icy again if she wants to help her make Teardrop talk. Ice Cube says "Yeah!" and she and Ice Cube fiddle with Teardrop's vocal cords. They immediately start playing around with TD's vocal cords, and Liy says she can almost hear Teardrop's voice. Bracelety is seen cheering Icy, and Clock asks her why she's condoning Ice Cube's "torturing" of Teardrop. After Clock's argument with Bracelety and Fanny, he tells Liy to stop trying to force Teardrop to talk. Liy refuses, and then Clock asks Icy if she wants to stop. Liy interjects that Icy should make her decision, but Ice Cube says she wants to stop. Clock appreciates Ice Cube's decision, but Liy becomes frustrated with Ice Cube and says she thought that Ice Cube was cool. Icy apologizes and continues along with Liy to try to make Teardrop talk.
Liy bought one quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) cans of fork repellent in "Why Would You Do This on a Swingset".
Liy appears to be a plastic light switch from the front and a wooden switch from the back. Her front side is a periwinkle blue, and her backside is a brownish-orange color with her switch being a light yellow.
Liy can be seen as a multiple sided individual, as she has many different character traits that are seen throughout the series.
Liy is seen as somewhat of a pushy and rather manipulative contestant, similar to Golf Ball. She can be seen trying to force other contestants to do what she wants, like trying to make Ice Cube wiggle Teardrop's vocal cords, or by trying to get Clock to form a truce with her.
However, Liy can also be seen as a curious individual, who manipulates others in the search of knowledge, such as wondering what TD has to say, or wondering what was at the top of Bell's string.
In addition, she can also be perceived as a contestant attempting to be kind, who wants to make up for her murderous past. She was seen saving the lives of various contestants, and she has in fact saved 2753 lives.
Liy could also potentially be an irritable person, as she can become angry quite quickly in some ways, such as when Ice Cube decides to stop helping her, and when she discovers she had the most votes.
- Four Goes Too Far: Liy may have died when Four got multiplied by zero. (debatable)
- Liy's other body when she pressed herself is identical to her body flipped vertically.
- Liy is one of three characters to appear in BFDI APPISIOTE 225555555!!!!!. The others are Foldy and Stapy.
- Liy's voice in Getting Teardrop to Talk is slightly pitched up (possibly to differentiate it better from Lightning's). This is either fixed or replaced in Lick Your Way to Freedom, where her voice is unaltered.
- She has admitted that she had killed someone, and also said it felt disturbing.
- She is the first contestant voted off who isn't voiced by one of the Huang Brothers.
- She's also the lowest ranked contestant voiced by Sabrina Barba.
- She is the second newbie in a row to get eliminated.
- She is the 4th female contestant in a row to be eliminated.
- She is the third contestant in a row to be eliminated with a name ending in "y".
- She is one of the only non-human characters on the show that isn't named after her appearance (the other being Loser), though her name might be a pun on "light switch".
- She was the first out of the three characters featured in BFDI APPISIOTE 225555555!!!!! to be eliminated.
- In BFB 5, it was revealed that she can change herself into her past self from BFDI APPISIOTE 225555555!!!!!
- Liy was sucked into Four faster than any other contestant.
- Liy was the second contestant sucked into Four that did not scream in terror. The first contestant was Bracelety, who was cheering for Ice Cube.
- She is also the first contestant to be silent while being sucked into Four.
- When Liy is particularly upset, she will change into her BFDI APPISIOTE 225555555!!!!! form. This has only happened once, however.
