Baldi's Least Favorite Tape is a one time use inventory item in Baldi's Basics Plus.


Baldi's Least Favorite Tape appears to be a clear but colorful cassette tape, with two reels with one of them storing the actual tape. To the right of them, there are gray pieces, which would contain all of the parts that the tape feeds through and onto the other reel.


It can be used to deter Baldi away from the Player for a short period of time. The item will disappear from the inventory once the Player inserts the tape into the Tape Player, which is located in the Principal's Office. Afterwards, the Player will be unable to use the tape recorder. This is especially useful if the Player is in detention, as that is when the Player is usually the most vulnerable to getting caught by Baldi especially at 99 seconds.


Main Gameplay


The tape can be only found in Faculty Rooms.

Endless Mode Medium

The tape can be found in a Faculty Room with Vending Machines along with a Quarter.

Baldi's Basics Classic
  • Baldi's Least Favorite Tape is the item that has gone through the most name changes.
    • It was simply called "Tape" in the game's earliest version.
    • In V1.1, it was renamed to "Baldi Anti Hearing and Disorienting". The name was changed probably so players could understand its purpose.
    • In V1.3, the word "Tape" was added to make the combined name, "Baldi Anti Hearing and Disorienting Tape". This name is still used in Baldi's Basics Classic and Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash.
    • Finally was renamed "Baldi's Least Favorite Tape" since Baldi's Basics Full Game Early Demo to make its mechanic more obvious.
  • Thanks to EDIR222

  • It was originally used to play helpful sound clips that would tell the Player about some characters.
