Pencil is a female contestant and minor antagonist on Battle for Dream Island and Battle for Dream Island Again. She has an alliance with Match and Bubble. When Match was eliminated in Half A Loaf Is Better Than None, Pencil "substituted" Ice Cube in for her. Pencil had not received a vote until The Reveal, thanks to YouTube user englishcreamcakes. In Reveal Novum, she was put up for elimination (despite winning the most points) due to the point board only holding 2 digit numbers (she earned enough points to go to 100, eventually dropping her in the low number range, of 105 to 5 points). In Rescission, Pencil was eliminated with 259 votes, giving her 9th place in the competition.
In Take the Plunge: Part 1, Pencil is first seen with Match, talking about Flower being afraid of bugs. Both girls yell when Ice Cube accidentally pops Bubble. During the challenge, Bubble, Pencil and Match all make an alliance, Ice Cube, eager to join asks them if she could join, just before Pencil is knocked off the beam with new alliance members, Bubble and Match. Pencil angrily resists letting Ice Cube in the alliance.
In Take the Plunge: Part 2, Ice Cube complains about Pencil not letting her join Pencil's alliance when Leafy chooses her for Leafy's team, Because of this, Pencil is chosen to be on Pin's team. And when Pin has trouble deciding who to choose, Pencil whispers for her to choose Bubble. Which Pin does. Pencil chooses Match next.
Pencil is shocked when Pin belittles the contestants, displaying her mouth wide open. Pencil babbles along with everyone else about the team name. Making Speaker choose the teams, dubbing Pencil's team the Squishy Cherries.
During the process of the boat being made, Pin makes Pen and Pencil be oars, Pen is shown to be happy about this while Pencil only shows a look of annoyance. Pencil goes through the whole in the boat, making Firey command her to stay there. She looks worried when Ice Cube, Leafy and Coiny are about to crash into their boat, screaming along with the rest of her team.
Pencil swims towards the finish line once Pen brings up the idea, she tries to encourage Match to swim with her, yet she doesn't leaving Pencil to go on without her. Pencil's team wins, leaving her immune from elimination and not being first eliminated on Battle For Dream Island, the first to go was in fact Flower, unless counting returns otherwise Woody would be the first to go.
In Barriers And Pitfalls, Pencil was sent by Pin to find Blocky, although she wanted to stay with her alliance. Once Pencil found the fish that supposedly ate Blocky, she tried doing a dance to make it open its mouth, although the fish then tries eating her. After being freed from the fish, Pencil and her alliance went as fast as possible. When Pencil tries jumping through the falling obstacle, she gets dulled. They fall when Rocky breaks their line.
In The Reveal, Pencil demands springy shoes from Leafy after Leafy gave some to Bubble. Leafy takes Bubble's springy shoes from her so Pencil can have them, but Bubble later gets them back. At Cake at Stake Pencil's no vote streak was broken (even her first voter, englishcreamcakes, got mentioned) but she is still safe. Pencil and Bubble do very well in the frisbee-throwing contest and both get 200 points.

- Pencil is the only contestant to appear in at or more than 5 object series.
- Mentioned in the doodle in Are You Smarter Than A Snowball?, Pencil loves chocolate.
- Pencil's elimination is considered unique:
- She was inappropriate for elimination, as she won the previous challenge: She was put up for elimination when her points exceeded the two-digit limit (105 -> 5), resetting back to the first few numbers.
- Dramatic background music is played for the first time throughout the Cake at Stake when she was eliminated.
- She is the last contestant to be eliminated before the point system was removed.
- Pencil is the first contestant to create an alliance on BFDI.
- In Total Firey Island, Pencil was supposed to win the competition.
- She was the first contestant who made a cameo appearance on w:c:inanimateinsanity:The Arena of Death (the third episode) of Inanimate Insanity when Nickel said that pencils were stupid.
- Pencil seems to love fuzzy stuff. In Reveal Novum, Pencil voted for Tennis Ball despite saying that he was so "fuzzy and everything" and in Insectophobe's Nightmare 3, Puffball won a personal speaker box and Pencil commented on it being fuzzy.
- Pencil has a record of going the longest time in season 1 with out getting any votes, with 1 year and 3 months. However, on April 1st, 2011 her streak had been broken because englishcreamcakes casted the first ever Pencil vote. She got 37 other votes as well for that episode (episode 17).
- She is also the last contestant to receive the first vote.
- Pencil has the most colors, with seven different colors.
- Pencil seems to get more mean every episode she is in as seen as she's very mean to Ruby in 5c.
- She, however connected to Match in one of the snapshots in there and it's definitely a bug.
- She seems to have the same voice as Test Tube in Inanimate Insanity 2 as shown to that Test Tube's page.
- She seems to act like a normal object speaking to a diamond that says that the diamond or ruby ate the peanuts by saying "Yes Ruby, you ate them all." As its shown in the snapshots
- She is the first contestant who can grab something with both of her arms and legs, as seen in BFDIA 5e when she throwing freezing syringe to all Team no-name contestants
- At the end of the preview of BFIS, Pencil is seen sleeping, then she wakes up at the last second.
- According to some information in Cary Huang's video "Yoyle City: Behind the Scenes", Pencil is about 1.7 meters tall, as her height is proportional to human sizes, not pencil sizes.
- This would mean that the FreeSmart Supervan would be 5 meters long.
- Pencil can be greedy, mean and competitive sometimes, and that is probably what caused her elimination.
- Pencil's favourite colour is brown, as shown in Are You Smarter Than a Snowball?.
