— Needle, her running gag, on numerous occasions

Needle is a female contestant who competed in Battle for Dream Island and Battle for Dream Island Again, and is currently a contestant in Battle for BFDI. In season one, she was on the Squashy Grapes until she was eliminated in "Puzzling Mysteries". She had slapped various people 13 times (as mentioned by the Announcer) before she was eliminated, which would cause the Tiny Loser Chamber to become full for the first time. She is known to dislike the name "Needy", slapping those who call her by Needy. She started the catchphrase "Aww, Seriously?" which the newbie David would carry on after her elimination. The first time she is called "Needy" is in "Are You Smarter Than a Snowball?" when Leafy asks if she thinks "non-existent" Ice Cube is mad at her, prone to slapping after being called Needy. Needle was competing in Battle for Dream Island Again on W.O.A.H. Bunch. Needle's best friends are Coiny, Ice CubePin and Teardrop; however, after episode 3, Needle and Leafy are enemies due to Leafy calling her "Needy" many times.


Needle appears to be a sewing needle; a type of needle used in sewing. Her body is very tall, long, and light gray.


Needle can get quite aggressive when she is called "Needy", as she appears to slap people when they call her that. However, she is shown to be calm & friendly at other times.
