Hey, when all you are is a nail, everything looks like a... like something you should stab!

Naily is a female object contestant and one of the former 30 recommended characters that could have joined BFDI and BFDIA, as well as a competitor in Battle for BFDI.

Along with Tree, Barf Bag, and Saw, Naily only received 3 votes and she was flung to the Locker of Losers in Reveal Novum.

Naily's IDFB redesign features a larger head and a lighter shade of gray, and her pointed end is smaller. Naily had a chance to rejoin in IDFB 2, but she only received 44 votes. [1]

Naily is currently competing on Battle for BFDI for Team Ice Cube!


Naily appears to be a steel hardware nail. She often makes a cat-like face in her appearances.


Naily is generally a person who enjoys impaling herself into things and others. She is somewhat rude at times. In the past, she made nail jokes, but Firey Jr. said they were annoying and she stopped.



  • Naily was named either Nail, Nailey, or Tack, as they were all clones of her.
  • Naily is the nail asset from Take the Plunge: Part 2.
  • Naily has legs.
  • Naily is dark gray.
  • Naily has a thick nail.


  • Naily has a unique asset.
  • Naily's needle is thinner.
  • Naily has a bit of shading on her needle.


  • Naily has 2 white shines on her head and on her nail.
  • Naily's head is larger.
  • Naily is now a lighter shade of gray.
  • Naily now has shading on her needle to her left.
  • Naily’s point is now shorter and smaller.


Naily is one of two characters in BFB voiced by Katherine Sun, the other being Eggy.

From Getting Teardrop to Talk until Today's Very Special Episode, her voice was slightly vocoded and was higher pitched. Exclusively in The Liar Ball You Don't Want, she has lost her vocoded voice and it has become lower pitched. In What Do You Think of Roleplay?, her voice became higher in pitch.

It is currently unknown whether or not her voice will stay the same.



Battle for Dream Island

In Bowling, Now with Explosions!, Naily, Nailey, and Tack make their debuts as part of the crowd of Recommended Characters. All 3 of the Nailys have different names, but look the same.

In Reveal Novum, Naily auditions to join Battle for Dream Island. In it, she stabs what sounds like Woody, and he shrieks from the pain.

In Reveal Novum, Naily, along with Tree, Barf Bag, and Saw received 3 votes each, which was the 2nd lowest out of the rest, with the lowest being Roboty's 2 votes. As revenge on the Announcer, Naily continuously stabs him, and she was later flung to the Locker of Losers.

Battle for Dream Island Again

In Yeah, Who? I Wanna Know, Naily had a chance to be a contestant in Battle for Dream Island Again, but she got 100 votes, which wasn't enough to join. She later was seen during Eraser's hallucination of the non-joining characters getting killed by a crusher, but since it was a hallucination, it wasn't real. She was later flung (again) to the Locker of Losers.


In Welcome Back, Naily did not make a physical appearance, but she appeared on the voting card as a character able to be voted for to join. Because IDFB 2 never came out, her votes were void.

Battle for BFDI

In "Getting Teardrop to Talk", Naily made her first speaking role. In it, Pencil's Alliance was letting to find out who threw the forks as an attempt to kill Bubble (Bell was the one who indirectly popped Bubble twice). She is later chosen to join Bracelety's team, alongside Donut. She is later used as a weight by Barf Bag and Bracelety, using Spongy as a trampoline, and is used to get a basket to X, making her team safe.

In "Why Would You Do This on a Swingset", her only appearance is on her team's swingset. After Donut's speech, she tells her team to transform, and Gelatin and Barf Bag both leap onto Spongy to propel the swing. However, Bleh completed all 50 swings, and her team's swingset presumably collided with Bomby off-screen, as he is later seen injured, cutting her team's swinging session short and subsequently causing her team to be up for elimination, as they only completed 47 out of the 50 swings needed for her team to be safe.

In "Today's Very Special Episode", Naily is seen after the intro, climbing Bell's string, along with the rest of Team Ice Cube! (barring Donut). At Cake at Stake, Naily is declared safe with 1,178 votes. When hit with a cake, she is knocked off of Bell's string, landing on Woody. Because of this, she avoids Lightning's electrocution of the climbers. She agrees with Clock that it was the largest zaptation she's ever seen. She does not actively participate in the challenge, but her team is safe.

In "Fortunate Ben", she doesn't speak, but despite that, she appears alongside teammates Spongy, Donut and Barf Bag, and corners Gelatin, who threw Bracelety's signs into a dumpster and were recycled into Death P.A.C.T.'s fortunes for the Cake at Stake. She is seen happy, however. She is later seen on her team's paper plane, and their plane never hit the ground, granting immunity.

In "The Liar Ball You Don't Want", Naily is first seen yelling "My turn!" and bouncing through two rows of bouncy toys along with everyone playing with the toys. When Donut announces what he did to Loser to eliminate him, she states that he had it coming. Firey Jr. tells her off for being "ungrateful". During the challenge, when the contestants are fighting over the jawbreaker, Naily stabs Bell in the face (who had the jawbreaker), killing her, and escorts the jawbreaker while still inside of Bell's body. She tells her team (referred to as "icy boys") not to worry, and that she's got it. Later on, it shows that Naily has been stabbed by Needle.

Naily is dead for the next few episodes but is revived in "Enter the Exit" by once Four is brought back by Pin. Prior to Four's resurrection, Donut had attempted to revive Naily, but had only succeeded in creating a mutilated version of her identical to the form contestants take on after being magically mutilated by Four. Upon being revived, Naily returns to her team and is hugged by Bomby.

In "What Do You Think of Roleplay?", Naily stabs Spongy, and this angers Firey Jr. He asks her if stabbing people is the only thing she knows how to do, and she replies that her being a nail makes everything look like something you should stab. Barf Bag later asks if Naily is a fake due to her not making any nail puns, but she explains that she's stopped because Firey Jr. found it annoying. She then asks if Spongy is a fake due to him just sitting there the whole time, but the other see this as normal. This makes her and Firey Jr. think that Bomby is the impostor, but before they can finalize their decision, iance figures out their impostor, meaning Team Ice Cube! is last and are up for elimination. She seems to be annoyed at the "melting" joke Four used when he says they were up for elimination and even more annoyed when X and Four argue about it. Naily and Firey Jr. blame each other for losing the challenge.
