Battle for Dream Island: The Power of Two (Web Animation) - TV Tropes (2024)

Split from Battle for BFDI, Battle For Dream Island: The Power Of Two (also known as The Power Of Two or by the initials TPOT) is the fifth season of Battle for Dream Island, where 42 contestants are battling for the prize of Limitless Power, and hosted by Two, an algebralian. Following the formula of most Object Shows, the team who loses is put up for elimination, but with a few twists. Like its sister show Battle for BFB, this show's elimination process is also vote to save, where the contestant with the least votes gets removed, which has resulted in very close ties. note Additionally, instead of one, two teams are put up for elimination each episode, resulting in two eliminations at a time.

The first episode was released on January 10, 2021. It was originally intended to be released on January 9, but it was delayed due to glitches in the intro.

Battle For Dream Island: The Power Of Two provides examples of:

  • Anthropomorphic Typography: Two is the numerical symbol of 2, and is anthropomorphic.
  • Artistic License – Physics:
    • A rather blatant example; in "Gardening Zero," Rocky's vomit acts as a lens that splits a gamma ray into three. One hits the Funny Plant in space, another hits the Funny Plant in real life, and the third hits the Funny Plant in Yoyleland. Gaty explicitly says that the last of those was fired from 2,763 lightyears away, but it only took a few seconds for the gamma ray to reach Earth and not 2,763 years... as the term "lightyear" would imply.
    • Team8s exploit this in episode 5 by throwing Coiny holding the world's strongest magnet, further from the train which the magnet is set to magnetise.
  • A Bloody Mess: In episode 7, Donut is crushed by two halves of a balance beam, revealing a red splatter. A text then points out that it is actually cherry-filling.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: Snowball and Basketball, respectively.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Just like Battle for BFDI, the teams in this season have certain colours associated with them:
    • Are You Okay: Lime Green
    • Death P.A.C.T. Again: Light Blue/Turquoise
    • Just Not: Yellow
    • Team8s: Pink
    • The S!: Periwinkle
    • The Strongest Team On Earth: Red
  • Eject the Loser: The recommended characters who did not get enough votes are sent down into their own rooms, as shown during the scene where Two discusses the number of teams there should be in the elevator.
  • Exact Words: Every team barring "The Strongest Team On Earth" has a name derived from this.
    • "Death P.A.C.T. Again" comes from Black Hole recognizing that the team is mostly made of Death P.A.C.T. members and other people who've pledged themselves to preventing death.
    • "The S!" was originally named "The Winners!" by Clock, but Winner asked the team not have their name.
    • "Are You Okay" comes as a result of Golf Ball's tendency to be the Giver of Lame Names, as she started saying what the team name should be, freezing once she realized that her next words would cement the team name forever, only for Tennis Ball to ask if she was okay.
    • "Team8s" comes from Saw trying to calm her team, made up of W.O.A.H. Bunch founders and zigzagged objects who were feuding over the team's name, with Saw affirming that they're teammates and that they shouldn't be fighting. (8-Ball's fumes made her emphasize the "Ate" sound, as per usual."
    • "Just Not" simply comes from Naily saying that their team was just not going to have a dumb name.
    • And Teardrop, being on her own team with nobody else, simply gets a team named "Teardrop."
  • Foreshadowing: In the first episode, when Two tries to tell everyone that it's time for Cake at Stake, no one can hear them when at top of the building, even when yelling. When explaining the rules of the first challenge, once again, no one can hear the 'No going back down' rule, which causes problems for a few of the teams, before beating Two up for not explaining it right and refusing to take responsibility.
    • While the group is going down in the elevator, PDA can be seen fiddling with the lock in their room with Shopping Cart cheering them on. In The Stinger, Liy decides to once and for all see what is behind the locked door in the EXIT.
  • I'll Kill You!: Once Eraser pushes over The Strongest Team on Earth's stack in TPOT 2.

    Bell: ERASER! You can't just knock our stack over like that!

    Eraser: What are ya gonna do about it?

    Bell: I'm...I'm gonna KILL YOU!

    Eraser: You can't kill me.

    Bell: Well...well SNOWBALL'S GONNA KILL YOU! Snowball, kill him.

    Snowball: unintelligible screaming

  • Laser-Guided Karma: In "The Worst Day of Black Hole's Life", Eraser kicks down the other teams' stacks, before being kicked by Bomby, thrown in the air by Winner, and finally blasted by Teardrop with her laser gun.
  • Meaningful Name: The show is called The Power Of Two, not only because it is split from Battle For BFDI or a formula in mathematics, but because the contestants are battling for the power of Two.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Inverted often. Whenever Two adds in a new amenity, it usually gets messed up or is messed up when they introduce it, and the contest of that episode is to fix the problem, with the teams that do the worst job going up for elimination.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Two suffers one at the hands of the contestants at the end of "You Know Those Buttons Don't Do Anything, Right?" after they blame them for failing to find a way to tell them about the 'No going back down' rule, and forcing them to learn of it the hard way.
  • One-Letter Pun: In The Great Goikian Bake Off, when Just Not exclaims to Golf Ball that they want to be big again, Golf Ball deduces that they "want TWO go back TWO normal". Then, on cue, Two shows up and scales Just Not back up to regular size.
  • Reality Warper: In episode 5, Just Not and Team 8's both exploit this by rewriting the definition of gravity and renamed the World's Slowest Train to the World's Fastest Train on those respective teams.
  • Rampage from a Nail: Subverted. In the second episode while Basketball is fixing Robot Flower, Marker's paperclip flies in and pierces Robot Flower in the back. When Basketball sees it, she thinks she Failed a Spot Check and mistakes it as the cause of Robot Flower's problems. However, when Basketball removes said paperclip, Robot Flower stops malfunctioning, as what the paperclip had lodged into was her reset button.
  • Running Gagged: In the first five episodes the intro was always started by Two, but after episode 6 Two no longer starts the intro.
  • Shout-Out: When Two tells Leek how much votes they get, they ask why they don't get a nickname. Two asks if they're leaking.
  • The Bus Came Back: The EXITors, who had been absent in BFB ever since the show split, make a return in The Stinger of the first TPOT episode.
  • Title Drop: The first episode's title is a direct quote taken from when Basketball is rapidly pushing the elevator buttons in an attempt to close the elevator and Eggy telling her that they don't do anything.
  • To Be Continued: The ending of TPOT 1, ends with the door of the EXIT opened by Liy. Afterwards, the screen reads To Be Continued.
  • Translator Microbes: The fish monster submarine found in Fishes and Dishes has a microphone which can translate English into the language of fish monsters.
  • Who's on First?: When Two calls for the team "Are You Okay," Fries says he's felt better.
  • Variant Chess: The episode Gardening Zero introduces "yoyle chess". It looks like normal chess at first, but the rooks look like vans, there are "strongest" and "weakest" squares on the board, "traps" the players can put up and also "points" to gain. Pillow mentions they have to play it on the tracks of a rollercoaster, although she might be using it as an excuse for her to cheat, whenever a cart is going towards them, she grabs the game and the other player, jump up high to avoid the cart and when they are back down she changes the pieces' places on the board. Her saying losing points is one of the consequences of getting cursed by Yellow Face's skeleton also might be an excuse.
  • You Didn't Ask: The reason why it's only starting now when BFB kept going for months after the split was because nobody asked Two if they could start competing.
