No drinking drinks in the halls!
 
— Principal of the Thing

BSODA is an inventory item in the Baldi's Basics series.

Description

BSODA is a navy blue can with a gray top and bottom, and white text saying the slogan: "Restart_ Refresh_ BSODA". The slogan on the small version is just "BSODA" in diagonal.

Usage

BSODA spray pushes Baldi away.

BSODA can push almost all characters in the Schoolhouse or Super Schoolhouse, making it useful to temporarily stall Baldi and the other characters. It's a Bully and Chalkles are the only exceptions. When used, it spits out a blue spray that is the same color as the can. If the Player presses the look back key/button to look backwards before using the BSODA, they can spray behind them. BSODA can also be used to open standard doors or swinging doors, but there should be a character being pushed by it.

If Principal of the Thing sees the Player using BSODA, he will send them to detention.

As it can go through walls, BSODA will last until the character being pushed by it runs into a wall or until 30 seconds pass. If there is It's a Bully in its path, any character can be stopped at him.

Other Appearances

Trivia

General
  • The BSODA is a reference to the Blue Screen of Death, a screen displayed when a critical error occurs on a Windows OS.
    • BSODA Machine's slogan further reflects this.
    • BSODA is a play on the acronym for the Blue Screen of Death: BSoD.
  • While the game itself has a ton of inspirations from Sonic's Schoolhouse, the idea of the BSODA's existence and is based on the Blue Screen of Death is taken from the Sonic's Schoolhouse's rare error that sometimes causes its operating system to crash to a Blue Screen of Death when attempting to exit the game.
Baldi's Basics Plus
  • BSODA is one of the few items to have a unique alternate sprite for inventory slots instead of a simply resized file, along with the Portal Poster.
  • BSODA's function is similar to Gotta Sweep and 1st Prize. BSODA is an item though, while Gotta Sweep and 1st Prize are characters.
  • The Player sprays BSODA instead of drinking it, despite Principal of the Thing's quote "No drinking drinks in the halls!". When thought about, his claim does not make sense.
  • The sprite of the BSODA spray seems way bigger than one in the classic edition and also seems to move slower.
  • BSODA could open standard doors even if there is no character being pushed.
Baldi's Basics Classic
  • In the class name of the BSODA's spray (BsodaSparyScript), Spray is misspelled as "Spary".
  • Prior to V1.3, the sound of spraying the BSODA was not implemented.

Glitches

Baldi's Basics Classic
  • In a couple of the earliest versions of the game, the BSODA would pass right through Baldi or other characters instead of pushing him back. This was fixed in later versions.
Demos
  • In the early demo and Kickstarter exclusive demo, if the Player uses the BSODA on Baldi while eating An Apple, Baldi will hover around the Player until he stops eating, which literally leads to losing a life or leading to a game over if the Player does not beat the floor in time or does not have a second apple. This glitch no longer happens in Baldi's Basics Plus.
