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

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


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


BSODA's 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 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 scold them for breaking one of the rules unless they wears the Faculty Nametag or is in the playground or his office.

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 by him.


Main Gameplay


BSODA can be found in faculty rooms, or in a BSODA machine when the Quarter is inserted. BSODA is also one of the possible rewards when completing a field trip. It can also spawn in Principal's office during the party event.

Endless Mode - Medium

BSODA can be found in a faculty room with a Quarter, close to the door.


One of BSODAs found in Grapple Challenge.

  • In the Speedy Challenge, one BSODA can be obtained from the BSODA machine. Another BSODA is found in a faculty room.
  • In the Grapple Challenge, two free BSODAs can be found in each faculty room and another can be purchased from the BSODA machine using the Quarter.
  • In the Stealthy Challenge, BSODA is absent.

Other Appearances


  • BSODA is a reference to the Blue Screen of Death, a screen displayed when a critical error occurs on a Windows OS.
    • The 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 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 BSODA's spray seems way bigger than one in Classic/Birthday Bash and also seems to move slower.
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 BSODA was not implemented.
  • BSODA could open swinging doors even if there is no character being pushed.

  • V0.3.4 BSODA half.png
    If using BSODA when Principal of the Thing is coming too close to the player after they are scolded by him, then sometimes, BSODA's spray will partially clip through the ground.

Baldi's Basics Classic
  • Prior to V1.2.2, BSODA would pass right through Baldi or other characters instead of pushing him back.
  • In Full Game Early Demo and Kickstarter Exclusive Demo, if the player uses 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.
