This article focuses on the interactions between Everyone and Balloon.
Balloon has been hated by contestants because of his manipulative nature, as well as his infamous voice actor's hack incident. Almost all characters distrust Balloon, and look at him as a threat. However, once Balloon returned for Inanimate Insanity II, he began to change into a better person, and tries to redeem himself with the other players, but there is not much progress.
Season 1 ContestantsEdit
In Inanimate Insanity II, Balloon is placed on Baseball's team, and in Marsh on Mars, Balloon volunteers to save Marshmallow, but Baseball angrily snaps at him and doesn't want to let him compete. However, after Suitcase persuaded Baseball, he let Balloon go on the journey.
Balloon never liked Lightbulb, as he was furious when she picked the teams before him. Due to the fact the two were on different teams they barely interacted.
Marshmallow accidentally pops Balloon in The Arena Of Death, though this was because she was thrown by Knife. In The Penultimate Poll, as Marshmallow and Nickel discuss their surprise in how far Taco made it in the season, Balloon constantly adds in his opinion, but the two show their anger towards his interruptions.

Balloon reveals he does not want OJ to win in the finale, but sat on the bleachers for OJ, as he hates Taco more. After OJ wins and buys Hotel OJ, he invites everyone in except Balloon, because of his vandalism. This is also elaborated on in Everything's A-OJ, after OJ still remarks that Balloon isn't allowed in his hotel. For more infomation go to OJ and Balloon.
In Breaking The Ice, Paintbrush kills Balloon twice at the start of each challenge, once with a needle, and the next with a dodge-ball.
Pickle and Balloon appeared to have somewhat of a friendship when Balloon chose Pickle first for his team, but this friendship quickly ended after Balloon made fun of Taco. This rivalry is continued throughout the series. See Pickle and Balloon for more information.
Taco and Balloon have been enemies from the very start, mostly because Balloon's bossy persona clashed with Taco's randomness and apparent uselessness. Although Balloon has reformed in Season 2, he still appears to hate her, as shown in Everything's A-OJ and on his note in Rain On Your Charade.
