Don't call me Needy!
— Needle, numerous times

Needle is a female contestant on Battle for Dream Island, Battle for Dream Island Again, and Battle for BFDI.

In Battle for Dream Island, Needle competed on team Squashy Grapes until she was eliminated in Puzzling Mysteries with 12 votes. She had used a Win Token, cutting her votes down to 6, but she was still eliminated.

Needle originally competed on team No-Name and later switched to team W.O.A.H. Bunch in Battle for Dream Island Again, and she survived to appear in IDFB.

Needle is currently competing on TheLoserslogo in Battle for BFDI.


Needle appears to be a sewing needle. Her body is very tall and thin, and is colored light gray. Later on BFB 11, her body is turned into CGI by the CGI Cake.


Similar to Ice Cube, Needle is a fairly quiet and vengeful character, and will slap whoever calls her "Needy". She can also be quite self-centered and biased, which is seen when she tells Teardrop to go against Firey just because he's on the other team, and tells W.O.A.H. Bunch to save her instead of killing her in No More Snow in order to win. Later, after she was recovered, she spit out her feelings that someone owes her an apology, giving us an idea that she really wanted to be respected. However, she does have a kinder side, and can be defensive to her team members, such as telling Donut that what Loser did in The Liar Ball You Don't Want doesn't really have an effect on the amount of votes he will get.


Battle for Dream Island

In Take the Plunge: Part 2, Needle was chosen by Leafy to be on the Squashy Grapes team. During the challenge, Needle was unable to get on her team's boat and ended up using Spongy as a raft.

In Barriers and Pitfalls, Needle was the only one to get to the end on her team, besides Teardrop. She also ended up getting a Win Token, as she was the first out of the obstacle course. She had used herself to get past the "find a needle in a haystack" which Firey and Teardrop were both stuck on. 

In Are You Smarter Than a Snowball?, Needle participated in the third contest, a test. However, her test paper was later set on fire. This episode also marks her first slap, because Leafy said "Needy" to her.

In Sweet Tooth, Needle made a yeast cake that ended up separating from Earth, causing wind storms on the next episode.

In Bridge Crossing, Needle fell into the canyon.

In Puzzling Mysteries, Needle received 12 votes for elimination, however, she used her Win Token, cutting her votes down to 6. Despite this, she was still eliminated, as Coiny received 5 votes.

Battle For Dream Island Again

In Yeah, Who? I Wanna Know, Needle doesn't appear often, but her favorite screen is revealed to be a large circle with a smaller circle on the inside.

In Get Digging, Needle goes with Gelatin and Puffball to get yoyleberries for her team in the challenge. She slaps Leafy after she says "at least I'm not too needy", and Leafy throws knives at the bunch, which follow them all the way back to goiky.

In Insectophobe's Nightmare 3, Pin says that she thinks she has killed about half of the bugs during the contest. Needle replies with "Yeah!".

In Zeeky Boogy Doog, after Teardrop gets eliminated, Coiny says he's "surrounded by pins and needles". Pin and Needle slap him after Pin corrects him, saying a pin and a needle.

In Get in the Van, Needle gets excited after thinking that Yoyle City is only 70 feet away after reading it on a tablet. Coiny corrects her, saying that Evil Canyon is 70 feet away, and shows that Yoyle City is actually 2,761 miles away.

In No More Snow!, Needle's team, WOAH Bunch, fall into Evil Canyon, and Needle balances on a spike while all of her team members on top of her, trying not to fall into the spikes. Needle then slaps everyone to get them out of the canyon, and Yellow Face then burns her alive afterwards.

In The Long-lost Yoyle City, Needle's team recovers Puffball, and Needle tries to get Puffball to bring their team to Yoyleland by calling her "puffy". It didn't work, and Puffball recovers all of her teammates and they fly away.


In Welcome Back, Needle tries to stop Tennis Ball and Golf Ball from going into the museum, but they don't listen and walk in anyway.

Battle For BFDI

In Getting Teardrop to Talk, Needle is first seen with Pin, worried about how her seeds are fast growing. When forming the teams, Firey wants Loser to join his team of Coiny, Pin, and Needle. However, Eggy, Clock, and Cake also want to be on a team with him. Needle begins to suggest that everyone wanting Loser to be on their team should all be on the same team, but Loser cuts her off and says just that. During the challenge, the baskets lands on some of the team members, Needle included. She tries lifting it up but it's too heavy.

In Four Goes Too Far, Needle asks Firey who they think has The Twinkle now, and Firey replies, saying "Black Hole!". Coiny slaps Firey, and says "Black Hole doesn't have eyes, so he can't get the twinkle!" the rest of their team then gasp. Clock ends up having the Twinkle after two hours, and therefore The Losers are up for elimination.

In The Liar Ball You Don't Want, Needle is safe, despite her votes being in the quadruple digits. When Donut states that Loser's uneasiness may be because of him lying earlier on in the episode and that the viewers won't forget what he did, Needle tells him that it wouldn't apply for today. She and the rest of the team is shocked to Loser eliminated.

In Enter the Exit, the contestants try to bring Four back. Needle is one of the contestants Blocky uses to stack in a sculpture of Four. When Firey gets the essence of Four in a syringe and is about to squirt it out in a shape of a 4, Needle interrupts, suggesting someone more dexterous should do this.

In Get to the Top in 500 Steps, Needle accepts Leafy's cake and eats it eagerly, much to Cake's horror. She is later chosen by her team to run up the 500-step staircase and reaches to top first, securing her team safety. She reappears in the stinger, where she turns into what appears to be CGI animation format, due to Leafy's cake, which is in CGI, similarly to when someone eats Yoylecake, and they turn into Yoyle Metal.
