The Talking Trees are two sentient trees who appeared in "A Lemony Lesson". Nickel finds the two trees and kicks one, causing the two to yell at him. The other one comments that he is an apple tree, and therefore, can be ignored because the challenge involves lemon trees. Lightbulb is quick to acknowledge that the trees were not there previously (three seconds ago), and MePhone4 notes that she is correct, but focuses the attention on a different set of trees that do not talk.
Nick Le was a reoccurring character created after many fans voted for Nickel, but spelled his name wrong as Nickle. Nick Le appears to be a humanoid-like, lightskinned character with no hair. His clothing is a light blue shirt with the words "Nick Le" on it, and a pair of navy jeans with a black and yellow belt. He also wears black shoes.
He appeared once again in a flashback in "War De Guacamole", as now Nickel was going to be eliminated because all the votes for Nick Le were counted and he was eliminated, while Lightbulb was brought back.
In Double Digit Desert, Nickel does not rejoin the game, and while he is upset, he is glad that at least nobody misspelled his name this time. However, as MePhone points out, more people had spelled his name as Nickle than correctly as Nickel, but having learned his lesson in the sixth episode, he knew to count all of the votes, aggravating Nickel. Nick Le then randomly falls from the sky and lands on top of Nickel, once again stating that he is highly offended, but apparently this time for not counting the votes for him as an individual from Nickel's, thus making him feel treated like he doesn't really exist. They both seem to be sent to Idiotic Island.
In "Aquatic Conflict", Nick Le's idle is seen to represent the top two voted to-be-eliminated contestants being eliminated.
Santa Claus was a minor character that appeared in "The Snowdown.
Although he does not appear until the very end of the episode, Santa Claus is talked about by Apple, who says she's excited to get her pony from Santa for Christmas, to which Paintbrush breaks the news to her that Santa isn't real. At the end, Santa Claus appears and picks up a note from MePhone4. It reads that he has laid out milk and cookies for him, but actually, he writes that there are no cookies since he's a fat slob so he ate them. Santa is disappointed at the failure of the simple task that is the only material reward he gets from delivering presents when Apple approaches him. Santa recognizes her, and Apple states that she knew he was real, and then proceeded to ask where her pony was. Santa, having forgotten to bring it, runs away.
In "Aquatic Conflict", while he does not appear, Santa is mentioned briefly in this episode. When Apple says that she hopes Paintbrush is eliminated, Paintbrush yells back that they wish that Santa took Apple with him.
As MePhone4S boasts his newer technological advances, he notes his "voice recognition technology", causing MePhone4 to ask "are you serious?", prompting Siri to reply "actually, I'm Siri." Later, MePhone4S utilizes Siri to generate cookies for elimination.
Siri makes a second appearance in "The Tile Divide", where she quickly scolds MePhone4 for disrespecting MePhone4S.
Her final appearance is in "Journey Through Memory Lane (Part 2)", where she urges MePhone4S not to downgrade into MePhone4. It is assumed that she, unfortunately, perished with MePhone4S after he downgraded.
Milk is a minor character who appeared in "Everything's A-OJ". She is a glass of white milk with eyelashes, visually similar to OJ. She makes her debut in the backseats of the courtroom, where she spectates the case of Hotel OJ vs. MePhone4. She appears very moved by Box's witness speech and even cries. She is sitting in front of Baseball and to the right of Lightbulb.
Rusty Jo is a minor character that appeared in "Everything's A-OJ". He appears to be based upon a metal jail cup, commonly used in prisons for criminals to drink out of. Rusty Jo notably has numerous scratches, a tooth gap, and blemishes on his body. When MePhone4 enters the jail, Rusty Jo questions MePhone4, who explains to Rusty Jo and the others that he locked some people in a room for several months, taking everyone by utter surprise. Rusty Jo is shocked, shaming MePhone4 for his excuse of a using reality show, and gives him words of encouragement to change his ways for the better, given he is somehow only in jail for one day. MePhone4, however, brushes this off, though notably taking concern.
Dagger is a minor character who appeared in "Everything's A-OJ". He is a tall knife with a thin pointed blade and brown handle. He appeared in jail with many other characters. His teeth are dull and slightly yellow. It can be assumed he is in jail for a crime involving violence.
Razor Blade is a minor character who appeared in "Everything's A-OJ". He is a silver rectangular razor blade with a hole in the center. He appeared in jail with many other characters. His teeth are dull and slightly yellow. It can be assumed he is in jail for a crime involving violence. He is also armless.
Swiss Army Knife
Swiss Army Knife is a minor character who appeared in "Everything's A-OJ". They are a red circular device with multiple knives and wrenches built in, which they can expose at will. They appeared in jail with many other characters. It can be assumed they are in jail for a crime involving violence.
When MePhone4 first enters the jail, Swiss Army Knife locks eyes with them and violently sprouts their knives, making them much more threatening.
Sledgehammer is a minor character who appeared in "Everything's A-OJ". He is a gray and yellow sledgehammer with a slim body and large head. He appeared in jail with many other characters. His teeth are dull and slightly yellow. After MePhone4 reveals that he locked people up, Sledgehammer curiously asks how long they were kept in for. MePhone4's answer, "several months", visually disturbs everyone, including Sledgehammer.
Poker Chip is a minor character who appeared in "Everything's A-OJ". He is a blue poker chip with a round body and white squares around his edges. He appeared in jail with many other characters. His teeth are dull and slightly yellow. It can be assumed he is in jail for a crime involving gambling.
MeBook is a minor character who appeared in "Theft and Battery". He is a white laptop with turquoise accents on his top and side, and a gray screen with a large crack on his right side. MeBook appears with Steve Cobs in Meeple Care while he inspects the stolen battery, MeBook asks if it's ok that he's repaired in Meeple Care. Cobs replies that it's fine, and notes that not many patients have actually visited Meeple Care for a while. MeBook asks how long it's been, but Cobs cannot answer the question since his Meeple Watch is broken.
Camera 1 and Camera 2
Camera 1 (black) and Camera 2 (white) are minor characters who appeared in "Snapshot Showdown". They wanted to ask MePhone4 about certain questions that have yet to be answered. MePhone4 does not want them in his presence and begs them to leave. The cameras upsettingly accepted the outcome as Camera 2 states that they got what they needed. They later posted an article about him along with an image of himself that contains sensitive content. Camera 1 and Camera 2 are both voiced by Michael J. Helton and Samantha Katz respectively.
Yarn is a contestant, assumed to be a past-eliminated contestant on Inanimate Insanity Infinity. Although they do not make a physical appearance, there is a game piece representing them in the board game played by Lightbulb during "Just Like Me", possibly hinting that they were also a contestant, since game pieces for Barrel, Hay Bale and Chives also appear on the board.
MePhone7's only appearance is in "Alternate Reality Show." Once Lightbulb and Test Tube arrive in the alternate universe, they are questioned by Bandana who asks if MePhone7 asked for them. MePhone7 responds simply with electronic buzzes, which Hay Bale interprets as a "yes". Shell remarks his love for MePhone7 while Kumquat notes that he is quite a "people person," which MePhone7 responds to with yet more electronic buzzing. Later, Salt and Pepper call upon MePhone7, who erratically jolts over to the unimpressed duo. Salt asks MePhone7 to make a fashion show, which after a few moments, he creates with ease, much to the delight of Salt and Pepper. MePhone7 makes his final appearance during Salt and Pepper's speech, but he is ultimately destroyed in a beam of cyan light and replaced with MePhone7+. Salt and Pepper disregard this entirely.
MePhone7+ is a minor character who appeared in "Alternate Reality Show", replacing MePhone7. He is mostly visually similar to MePhone7, but his color palette is black (case) and blue (screen). His sunglasses are a bit thinner and tall than 7.

Pencil is a contestant on Battle for Dream Island who appeared in "The Arena Of Death". She abruptly appears and calls Nickel a jerk during the elimination ceremony after he stated that pencils were stupid, after becoming annoyed that the prizes for cookies were switched for pencils.

She also popped Balloon at the end of the episode as she was flying away.
'Nonexisty is a recommended character on Battle for Dream Island who appeared in "One-Shot Wonder". After Nickel explains to Knife how he escaped the LOL, he turns and thanks Nonexisty, who appears as a shadow, and replies with a confident "no problem".
Although Nonexisty can speak and has a shadow on Inanimate Insanity, he cannot speak on Battle for Dream Island, since he is literally non-existent and apparently tastes like peanut butter, as said to Firey.
Rocky is a contestant on Battle for Dream Island who appeared in "One-Shot Wonder". He makes a non-speaking cameo appearance during the slingshot challenge and acts merely as an obstacle. Pickle and Lightbulb trip over him on different occasions, causing Pickle to let go of Salt's slingshot too early and have her fall down the gorge, as well as causing Lightbulb to shatter.
Cloudy is a recommended character on Battle for Dream Island and formerly a contestant on BFB (He left for TPOT) who appeared in "The Stacker". As Salt and Pepper play Frisbee, Pepper throws a Frisbee after telling Salt to go long, but it hits him, who whines in pain.
