Combining the intense action of ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' and the hilarity of ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'', [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/765650/Lord_Maximus Lord Maximus]] brings you an intense fanfiction experience that could be one of the best stories ever written on the site, as well as one of the longest [[ArchivePanic (Over 700k words, 100+ chapters and counting.)]]

[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6406830/1/Code_Total_Drama_Reality Code Total Drama Reality]] is set two years after WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko XANA has returned after faking his death. When the original gang find out, they try to stop him, however Lyoko and the monsters aren't like they remember. They are soon overpowered, and Yumi, Ulrich, Odd, William, and Jeremy are captured, leaving Aelita to fight by herself. At the same time, Chris has brought all the past contestants of Total Drama back for a fourth season, in which they do challenges in the real world and a virtual one by the company Realitech. During a challenge, Gwen, Leshawna, DJ, Geoff, and Bridgette run into Aelita as she's attacked by a materialized monster. After they save Aelita she asks for their help and brings them to the factory when they become the new Lyoko warriors. So now they must juggle the show as well as fight XANA to save the world.

[[Characters/CodeTotalDramaReality Now with a work-in-progress character sheet.]]

!!Lyoko Warriors:

Originally it was Aelita and the five mentioned above, however over the course of the story new warriors are added and some warriors are prevented from fighting in Lyoko, but have a chance of returning. Here is a list of everybody who fought at Lyoko at some point.

* Aelita: The only original Lyoko warrior and [[OlderAndWiser mentor]] / [[TheHero leader]] of the team.
* Gwen: She's a [[SinisterScythe scythe-wielding]] [[MagicalGirlWarrior Spellcaster]] with a lot of tricks up her sleeve.
* DJ: MartialPacifist who can make [[BarrierWarrior shields]] and [[MightyGlacier turn himself into stone]]. Alieta later upgrades his golem form, transforming him into a iron golem.
* Geoff: A [[TheLancer lancer]] with [[RingsOfDeath chakrams]] and [[ShockAndAwe lightning attacks]].
* Bridgette: She's a warrior version of a [[SurferDude Surfer Dudette]] with a board that can split into two swords and [[MakingASplash power over water]]. Aelita later gives her an upgrade that increase her water powers.
* Leshawna: An ActionGirl who carries a [[DropTheHammer big hammer]].
* Cody: He is a [[GunsAkimbo twin pistol wielding]] TimeMaster and James Bond-dressed SixthRanger to the original TD Lyoko warriors and one of the [[SmartGuy smart guys]] of the team.
* Courtney: She's mix of BadassPrincess / HighlyVisibleNinja combo [[BladeOnAStick wielding a staff with blades on both ends]] and can [[HealingFactor heal and power up her teammates at the cast of her life points]] and can [[LifeDrain steal life points from monsters to restore her's]]. (Yeah, [[WomanScorned that]] [[ControlFreak Courtney's]] power is giving.)
* Heather: Full-on [[McNinja kunoichi]] with quick reflexes, shuriken, wrist blades and {{Invisibility}}. Later, revieces an upgrade in the form of flash bombs and grappling hooks
* Trent: A sharp-dressed MusicalAssassin armed with a guitar that has many features.
* Duncan: A [[BloodKnight punk warrior]] with a sword that can blast [[TechnicolorFire green fire]] and can turn into a Comicbook/GhostRider-like berseker.
* Izzy: A fox-like girl who shots [[ArrowsOnFire exploding arrows]] and [[VoluntaryShapeshifting can turn into any animal on Earth]].
* Noah: Dressed liked someone from Film/TheMatrix, Noah can [[IntangibleMan phase through objects]], [[BodySnatcher possess monsters]] and [[ShapeshifterWeapon can change his arms into weapons]]. Also a SmartGuy he created his own multi-agent program to fight XANA [[spoiler:until Shadow fused with it.]]. Later recieves an upgrade that allows him to create decoys, but naturally [[CloningBlues tinkers with it.....]]
* Eva: Dressed like a brawler and fights like one too. Uses shockwaves with quite a few uses.

!! XANA's Generals

Along with his monsters and his own avatar XANA created his own team of warriors based of of the DNA of the original Lyoko he captured, and at one point three of the new Lyoko warriors. While they have some similarities to the originals the the generals are opposites personality wise and are essentially ThePsychoRangers. They are very powerful even if the Lyoko Warriors have the number advantage.

* Shadow of the Endless Night: He is actually the A.I. William Jeremy created, XANA freed him and upgraded his intellect and give him all of the powers William had while under his control plus more. Driven by revenge Shadow led Xana's armies. He also has a demonic SuperMode. [[spoiler:After his continuing failures XANA demoted him and made Lilith the new head general. This caused Shadow to betray XANA and steal Noah's Multi-Agent and fuses to became as strong as XANA is.]]
* Ryder of the Storm: Based off of Ulrich. Ryder wields a long katana and used [[TechnicolorFire red]] [[ShockAndAwe lightning attacks]]. Ryder is pretty cocky and is quick to lose his temper.
* Yuki of the Blizzard: Based off of Yumi. Yuki is a graceful [[AnIcePerson ice user]] who do many thing from ice blasts to ice weapons and making snowmen armies, making her a real threat in the ice sector. Matching her ice powers Yuki is quiet, withdrawn and [[TheStoic cool-headed in battle]]
* Lilith of the Mirage: Based off of Jeremy. (Bet you didn't see that coming!) Lilith wields a [[ArcherArchetype bow and special arrows]] and is a MasterOfIllusion as well as portals and creation. Lilith tends to have the personality of little girl and is pretty mischievous. [[spoiler:After beating Shadow she is made the leader of the generals.]]
* Cyrus of the Nightmare: Based off of Odd. Cyrus had a third eye that allowed him to read minds and predict his opponent's moves and is able to copy their weapons and abilities, with this he handled Geoff, Leshawna and Bridgette by himself. [[spoiler:He was killed by Cody and his time-control powers.]]
* Sora of the Maelstrom: A general created from Heather's DNA. He is armored warrior who wields an air blade.
* Jinx of the Curse: Created from Gwen's DNA, Jinx wields a spear and casts curses on her enemies.
* Blade of the Quake: Despite being made from Noah's DNA Quake, he has a rather punk-like appearance, and is [[TheBrute very big, gruff, and powerful]], as he demonstrated by throwing a megatank in the air and ripping it in half. [[spoiler: He can also use his blood to create weapons and armor as hard as steel. The blood is also unaffected by the Digital Sea. Blades true form is the blood, and thus he cannot be destroyed unless he's hit in his core. Currently deceased.]]
* Cain of the Inferno: Created from Seraphim's Digital DNA. He is capable of [[PlayingWithFire controlling fire]] and wields a claymore. Also has a pet phoenix known as Ember, which is much more powerful than standard ones.
* Agro of the Bloody Lands: Created from Duncan's DNA. Unlike the other generals, he is rather unruly, hence the reason XANA keeps him in chains. He is very agile and strong and is capable of spitting acid from his mouth similar to a Hornet.
* Ahriman of the Void: Created from Courtney's DNA who lives inside of Agro and can attack his enemies using invisible hands.
----
!! This story shows examples of:

* AGodAmI: [[spoiler:Nephilim]]
* TheAce: [[spoiler:Seraphim, a hyper-competant A.I. designed by Robby.]]
* ActionGirl: All of the female Lyoko warriors and generals. Also Lindsay in the virtual zombie challenge.
* AffablyEvil: Sora, which contrasts directly with his "mother" Heather.
* AndIMustScream: Becoming trapped within Lyoko, never starving, aging, or dying unless by falling into the digital sea, wherein your body and mind will be scattered throughout the web. [[spoiler:Aelita's mother took the last option after Lyon had imprisoned her in the digital realm. Then, in a magnificent twist of DeathByIrony, Lyon also becomes trapped in a digital isle by XANA.]]
* BadassBookworm: Aelita; eventually Cody and Noah as well. There's also Lesley, as seen below.
* BadassBystander: What convinces Aelita to have the ''Total Drama'' cast help her fight against XANA is how they could curb-stomp a Tarantula in the real world with broken bench parts.
* BadassNormal: The two main [[{{OC}} OCs]] of the story, co-producers Kurt and Carlos. Also Lesley, an attorney who is described as "a Carlos version of Courtney": really good at giving Chris a verbal beatdown at court, and also strong enough to hold up and throw a 284-pound man.
* BadassPrincess: Courtney and Aelita.
* BarrierWarrior: DJ. Trent can also create barriers using his guitar.
* BattleCouple: Geoff and Bridgette, of course.
* BerserkButton: Duncan has gotten sick being called a punk. [[spoiler:So much so that he gets rid of his mohawk and piercings.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Cody, even while still a rookie, battles against [[spoiler:Cyrus]], a general, and '''wins'''.
* BiTheWay: Owen still has his moments and it turns out Lesley dated Carlos and [[spoiler:Blaineley.]]
* BigBadassBattleSequence: Plenty, but so far the battle while they're at the forest (which introduces not only ''six'' new warriors, but Lilith as well) [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome stands out particularly well]].
* BigDamnHeroes: Cody starts out as one; [[spoiler:later applies to the arrival of Seraphim.]]
* BiggerOnTheInside: The central tower in the City Sector. The TropeNamer is even referenced!
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Early on, XANA possesses nearly all of the ''Total Drama'' gang with specters. Alejandro during the later parts of the "Deal With the Devil" arc.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Noah once, when a XANA attack seemed to carry some disturbing implications.
* BreatherEpisode: Chapter 24, set after the rather emotionally heavy "Deal With the Devil" arc and before the action-filled "Field Trip" arc, deals with a wrestling match ''TotalDrama'' style, followed by some extensive flashbacks of some [[NoodleIncident unbelievable antics]] from [[ThoseTwoGuys Kurt and Carlos]]. Basically, most of the time the fic goes back to ''TotalDrama'' segments, it'll be a BreatherEpisode.
* BroughtDownToNormal: Due to XANA's interference, DJ, Leshawna, Cody, and Geoff can't go into Lyoko after the "Field Trip" arc.
** They get better in "Armageddon Part 2" [[spoiler:only for Courtney and Duncan to fall prey to this]].
* BruiserWithASoftCenter: DJ
* {{BST}}: [[spoiler:Duncan and Courtney are at it again]].
* CallingYourAttacks: As per ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' tradition, Aelita, the original Lyoko gang, XANA's generals, and on occasion Gwen do this. Averted by the other Lyoko Warriors.
* TheCameo: During one of the virtual challenges Team Victory encountered Predator and Shrek's Puss in Boots.
* CantGetAwayWithNuthin: After the way World Tour ended Chris can't make challenges life-threatening anymore.
* CastFromHitPoints: Some of Gwen's spells cost life points as does Courtney's healing powers.
* CasualDangerDialogue: Mostly by [[DeadpanSnarker Noah]], and Lilith and Sora [[LampshadeHanging make a point on how cliche it is]].
* CharacterDevelopment: Gwen and Trent have regained their personalities from season 1, Geoff and Bridgette do more than just make out, DJ has self-esteem, and Heather and Courtney break out of their AlphaBitch status.
* ChainsawGood: Trent's guitar can also act as a chainsaw.
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:Robby, who showed up as a technical assistant at TDR, is revealed to be Waldo Schaeffer's former student and the creator of Seraphim.]]
* ChekhovsSkill: In some major battles Gwen and Cody revealed some useful abilities they discovered while training on Lyoko. It can apply on a wider range to the rest of the ''Total Drama'' regulars in that the constant abuse they were put in the last three seasons has given them the strength and endurance to fight against whole armies of XANA's monsters.
* ClickHello: Cody attempts this on [[spoiler:XANA]]. It doesn't work.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Gwen's spells emit different colored auras.
** Each Spell and it's color.
*** Fire - Red
*** White - Energy Strings
*** Green - Wind
*** Yellow - Earth
*** Light Blue - Stat boost
*** Black - Shadow Veil
*** Purple - Poison
*** Pink - Anti-XANA
* ComboPlatterPowers: Gwen can fly, use her scythe as a barrier, get her weapon back if she loses it, uses fire, earth, wind, and poison attacks, and can increase one of her stats, and hide in her enemies shadow. However, several of these do cost her a good amount of life points.
* CommonTongue[=/=]TranslationConvention: It's justified both ways- Aelita is very intelligent and would be good at English and French is a second language in Canada. Aelita also notes in hearing the Total Drama cast for the first time on how their accents are "odd."
* CompensatingForSomething: There are in-universe jokes thrown about on swords and such, but Sora and Noah's roast at chapter 46 cranks it up a notch.
* ContinuityPorn: Lord Maximus clearly knows his stuff on both shows, as the story calls back to countless instances from previous ''Total Drama'' seasons as well as the origins of Lyoko, XANA, and Project Carthage (which Aelita's father worked on and created XANA for in hopes of countering it).
* CoolHelmet: Sora's eagle helmet, with the added benefit that it can shoot lasers.
* CostumePorn: Not all of them are particularly detailed, but each Lyoko team member and XANA general has his or her own unique battle costume. The outfits in the virtual zombie challenge are all also described extensively and each have a ''Film/VanHelsing'' flavor to them.
* {{Crossover}}: [[CaptainObvious Kinda the point.]]
* DarkActionGirl: Yuki, Lilith, and Jinx.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: As it turns out, [[spoiler:Alejandro]] was more than justified in hating his siblings.
* DarkIsEvil: Shadow, all the way.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Gwen and her shadow veil spell. Geoff's Lyoko outfit also has a surprising amount of black and dark colors.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Moreso compared to the original two shows.
** LighterAndSofter: On the other hand, ''Total Drama Reality'' (the show in-universe) is considerably less dangerous than ''World Tour'', sticking to the more conventional reality show challenges from ''Island''.
* DeadManWriting: [[spoiler:The video message that Seraphim sends to the Lyoko gang, informing them on Lyoko's Carbon Copy, where XANA's lair is located.]]
* DealWithTheDevil: XANA using a human guise restored Alejandro's body in exchange for sabotaging the VR pods. Ironically that was the name of the chapter.
* DefrostingTheIceQueen: Heather and Courtney after they becoming Lyoko warriors and Sissi has been mentioned to become a better person after Code Lyoko ended.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: A common problem with the author's writing style; it gives a good picture on the fighting choreography, but can be pretty distracting.
* DistressBall: The original Lyoko team has now spent about 100 chapters in XANA's Lyoko copy, though the latest author's note hints that Aelita and her team are at least getting close.
* DualWielding: Bridgette's swords, Geoff's chakrams, Cody's pistols, Yuki's ice swords, and Seraphim's daggers.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: XANA's avatar.
* ElementalPowers: And a lot of them.
** PlayingWithFire: Gwen, Trent, and Duncan
** MakingASplash: Bridgette
** BlowYouAway: Gwen and Sora
** DishingOutDirt: Gwen
** ShockAndAwe: Geoff, Ryder, and Trent
** AnIcePerson: Yuki
** CastingAShadow: [[CaptainObvious Shadow]], Gwen, and Seraphim.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Duncan as "ThreeDaysGrace Reject" and "Punk," Trent as "Elvis," and Alejandro as "Spaz" and [[spoiler:"Darth Alejandro"]].
* EnergyAbsorption: How [[spoiler: Nephilim]] is defeated.
* EverybodyLaughsEnding: Chapter 35.
* EvilBrit: XANA's avatar has a slight British accent.
* ExecutiveMeddling: A rare good ''in-universe'' example; this ''Total Drama'' season is far less life-threatening and the setting is much more accomodating due to some real interference from Carlos and the rest of the executive board on Chris.
* {{Expy}}: Trent and his guitar attacks are an expy of [[BrutalLegend Eddie Riggs]] and Duncan's berserker mode is green version of Comicbook/GhostRider.
** Roberto is also very similar to Chef, though in a rare case they both exist in the same work together.
* FandomNod: Of the ''TotalDrama'' fandom.
** Ezekiel chose Bridgette as his favorite to win (though through complete chance).
** Sierra does dress up like Gwen, claiming it to be her cheerleading outfit for Cody.
* FeatheredFiend: The Terror Bird, a new Lyoko monster.
* FemmeFatale: Lilith, to the point where it's [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]].
* FieryRedhead: Izzy as usual, and Lilith. Kurt also edges into this if he's angry enough.
* FireForgedFriends
* FiveBadBand:
** TheBigBad: XANA, duh. Also doubles as TheEvilGenius.
** TheDragon: Shadow. [[spoiler:Eventually Lilith.]]
** TheBrute: Ryder, though Blade fits the trope better.
** TheDarkChick: Yuki, Lilith[[spoiler: at first]], and Jinx.
* {{Foil}}: Often the case with Lyoko Warriors and the AI generals created with their DNA, and it's shown that they can even be of opposite genders; [[TheSmartGuy Jeremy]] and [[FemmeFatale Lilith]] and [[TeenGenius Noah]] and [[TheBrute Blade]] are probably the most jarring cases.
* FreakyFridayFlip: It happens to Gwen and Izzy in ch.62 but not in the usual way. [[spoiler:Their skin, eyes, and hair swap colors and parts of their personality go the other.]] None the less HilarityEnsues.
* GadgeteerGenius: Noah in the robot building challenge, and surprisingly enough, Lindsay.
* GayParee: For the most part averted, since it's still set in the same suburb from ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko''. But it is still ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Total Drama]]'', so some aspects are used for comedic effect, particularly in the first challenge.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Gwen does this often to Heather and Courtney when they first come to Lyoko.
* GracefulLoser: Even when Noah is struggling in a project for the first time in creating his multi-agent program to counter XANA [[spoiler:and when said program backfires and accidentally gives Shadow a major power upgrade]], he takes it in stride with a healthy amount of HeroicSelfDeprecation.
* GrandTheftMe: Heather and Gwen have had their bodies taken over by Shadow and XANA respectively.
* GroinAttack - typically called the "Kick of a Billion Years of Pain."
* HalfwayPlotSwitch: There are two other recurring plot lines; one which involves FBI agent Ray Parker investigating the disappearance of the Kadic kids (and subsequently becoming further involved in researching Aelita's past) and the other involving one of the scientists of Project Carthage [[spoiler: creating an all-powerful AI himself]].
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: XANA averts it this time around; he now has an avatar that's an older, GenderFlipped, and [[PaletteSwap Palette Swapped]] version of Aelita.
* HesBack: The whole kick-off for the story.
* HereWeGoAgain: [[spoiler:After Nephilim set the ResetButton on their relationship, Courtney and Duncan are back to where they were before chapter 29.]]
* HeroSecretService: Now with over thirteen members!
* [[HeroicBlueScreenOfDeath Heroic BSOD]]: [[spoiler:Gwen has one in chapter 61 but Trent manages to help her overcome it.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Subverted twice]] with Aelita, later pulled by [[spoiler:Seraphim]].
* HitPoints
* HumiliationConga: Chris
* HypocriticalHeartwarming: Though more in a FireForgedFriends manner than with any romantic implication. The kicker? It's [[spoiler:''Trent'']] ''to Duncan''.
-->'''[[spoiler:Trent]]''': Only I get to make fun of that Three Days Grace reject.
* ISenseADisturbanceInTheForce: Xana when he discovers [[spoiler:Nephilim was coming to Lyoko]].
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: One of XANA's polymorphs (disguised as Aelita) drove a knife into Gwen once, nearly killing her.
* InsistentTerminology: Not by the characters... but the ''author'', who keeps correcting any use of "Carlos and Kurt" as "Kurt and Carlos" in-story in parentheses.
* ItsPersonal: Kurt and Carlos '''''hate''''' Chris, let's just leave it at that.
* KickTheDog: Arguably, [[spoiler:Sierra]]'s elimination, even after giving some helpful advice to [[spoiler:her]] team.
* KillItWithIce: XANA's scheme in chapters 45-46.
* KillItWithWater: His next plot.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Chris suffers for this big time.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:And just when Courtney and Duncan got over their {{BST}}...]]
* LastRequest: A unique variation; [[spoiler: Duncan, while not dying, has been dealt a devirtualizing blow. By the time he goes back to the real world, he (like Courtney shortly before him) will remember nothing of his experiences as a Lyoko warrior. As he's fading away he asks the gang to help in reconciling him and Courtney again.]]
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Characters have commented on how they look 3-D in Lyoko.
* LeeroyJenkins: Eva to an extent. Her eagerness to fight has caused a few problems. YourMillageMayVary on this though.
* LifeDrain: Courtney can drain monsters of their life points to restore all of hers.
* LimitedWardrobe: Gwen averts this Chapter 42 now wearing a black tank top and a dark blue mini skirt with a black swirls [[spoiler: to go with her new hair.]]
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: The already-gigantic ''Total Drama'' cast, plus the ''Code Lyoko'' cast, new monsters and enemies, along with several significant [[{{OC}} OCs]].
* LooseCannon: Eva.
* MadScientist: Dr. Lyon.
* ManipulativeBastard: XANA and Shadow
* MemeticBadass: Kurt and Carlos are in-universe examples, with their status lampshaded by the characters. Even the author agrees.
* MindRape: Lillith does this to Aelita to weaken her mind to be controlled by [[spoiler:making illusions of hr mother and friends to berate her.]]
* MisfitMobilizationMoment: Twice!
* MissionControl: Unlike in ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' (where the role was almost always Jeremy's), several group members take the role. However, the position seems mostly relegated to Cody now.
* MurphysLaw: It's a RunningGag, really.
* NoodleIncident: Subverted; Kurt and Carlos' crazy exploits in the past (which have included slippery (American-brand) pants, several falling victims, and brushes with the mafia) are explained to the audience, but never to the actual characters.
* NothingIsTheSameAnymore: Lyoko's reformatted so that now people have all their senses and there are actually temperatures in each sector, along with four new sectors.
* NotSoInnocentWhistle - Chef, Duncan, and Cody each preform one... after effectively turning Chris into a walking pizza.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: More like Obfuscating Insanity; Izzy does get her situation as a Lyoko Warrior a lot better than she lets on.
* OfCorsetsSexy: Jinx, before Lord Maximus changed her outfit to a MinidressOfPower; Gwen also eventually changes out of her regular outfit.
* OhNoNotAgain: [[spoiler:In chapter 55 Nephilim activates the dormant XANA coding inside Gwen to make her red and BrainwashedAndCrazy again]]
* OnTheNext: The author's note (chapter 53) has an extensive one.
* OneNameOnly: Averted for several ''Total Drama'' characters using non-canon surnames.
* OnlyAFleshWound: Aelita manages to pull through going to Lyoko even after getting a cauterized laser wound; in the same battle Leshawna is also shot at by XANA's monsters in the real world, but she sure doesn't stop beating them up. This is averted however, in later cases.
* PapaWolf: Kurt and Carlos both qualify big-time; Carlos especially since he actually is a father to triplets.
* PeekABangs: Heather's Lyoko form, Ryder, and Lilith.
* ThePlan: Pulled off by XANA in multiple occasions [[spoiler:and even Waldo Schaeffer, when it turned out that even the newly-upgraded XANA couldn't penetrate Aelita to steal the Keys to Lyoko due to Schaeffer's pre-planning on Aelita's safety.]]
* PointyEars: Izzy's Lyoko form has them.
* PowerCopying: One of Noah's abilities is to changes his hands into weapons based on the ones XANA's monsters use such as Tarantula's lasers and Krab's blades.
* PowerTattoo: Bridgette has wave-shaped ones that can [[PowerGlows glow]] when she activates her powers. Lesley also has one on her neck.
* PunchClockVillain: Lilith and Yuki, though the latter's more debatable.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: XANA's generals.
* RapunzelHair: Jinx has brown hair that goes down to her knees.
* RealMenHateSugar: Averted; Roberto loves all of the good sweets while judging in the confectionary challenge.
* {{Reconstruction}}: [[spoiler:Of the infamous D[=/=]C[=/=]G love triangle, or as much as a fanfic can pull off. Gwen, realizing that she and Duncan didn't have much in common on a deeper level, reconsiders her relationship with him. She ultimately decides that a BetterAsFriends dynamic would be better when she sees Duncan and Trent fighting over her [[note]]and earlier, when Duncan revealed his true feelings in chapter 19[[/note]]. Duncan meanwhile never actually gave up on Courtney, but her controlling personality and her [[WellDoneSonGuy reliance on her parents' opinions]] became too much for him to deal with, prompting him to start his relationship with Gwen to make Courtney jealous. After seeing Courtney in danger in Lyoko however, Duncan properly apologizes for his behavior and the two slowly rebuild a bond over the course of 25 chapters. Courtney doesn't come away clean either, as she also comes to accept that while her intentions with Duncan were good, her treatment of him was insensitive. At this point she also sees Gwen in a new light as they [[FireForgedFriends become allies in Lyoko]].]]
* RedOniBlueOni: Respectively, Carlos and Kurt; Ryder and Yuki.
* RetiredBadass: Carlos was a former SAS member [[spoiler: as was Kurt]].
* RippleEffectProofMemory: Courtesy of, of course, Return to the Past.
* SharpDressedMan: Cody and Trent in their Lyoko forms.
* ShipTease: Recent chapters are showing some favor for [[spoiler:Trent[=/=]Gwen]].
* [[ShockwaveStomp Shockwave Punch]]: One of Eva's attacks.
* ShoutOut: ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', ''ThreeDaysGrace'', ''Franchise/MassEffect'', ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'', ''Film/TheMatrix'', ''Comicbook/GhostRider'', and ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'' to name [[ReferenceOverdosed a few]].
* SweetTooth: [[spoiler:Lillith when she's in the real world.]]
* TakeThatKiss: So random it needs to be spoilered: [[spoiler:Lilith to Noah!]]
* TheTeam: Played with in that the members of Lyoko team often rotate their roles in the group.
** TheLeader: Aelita. She also acts as TheMentor and [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]].
** TheLancer: Gwen often switches from this to TheHero. Geoff fits the description more. Eventually Heather becomes this.
** TheSmartGuy: Cody and Noah. Often joined with Aelita.
** TheBigGuy: DJ, though he toed the line between this and TheChick due to his status as a BarrierWarrior; Duncan is a better example. Leshawna, Eva and Izzy are female versions.
** TheChick: Bridgette; Trent counts as a male version.
** TheMedic: Courtney.
** TheSixthRanger: Cody, then joined by ''six'' [[TheSixthRanger Sixth Rangers]] more.
* TemporaryBlindness: One of XANA's attacks included light bulbs going off and blinding people.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Kurt and Carlos.
* TookALevelInBadass: Everyone who becomes a Lyoko warrior in this story and XANA's monsters.
* TriggerHappy: Carlos, and he doesn't do a very good job in trying to hide it from others.
* {{Troperiffic}}: Each episode is written like a TV episode (mixing in memorable elements from both shows), the author obliges in using pop culture references and lampshading the cliches, and just look at the size of this page!
* TheVoiceless: XANA also averts this part of his old self and hoo boy, does he have a lot of things to say.
* TwitchyEye: Heather does this when Sora says he was made from her DNA and called her mom.
* UncannyValleyGirl: Invoked by the XANA polymorph that disguises itself as Aelita.
* UnexplainedRecovery: Blaineley, Heather, and Sierra. Alejandro however, is completely fixed up by XANA at the start of the "Deal With the Devil" arc and as such earns the suspicion of the Lyoko team. [[spoiler:After a Return to the Past, he then goes back to the robot suit.]]
* VolleyingInsults: Noah and Sora engage in a pretty harsh round of this in their first battle.
* [[WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld Wake Up, Do The Show, Save The World]]
* TheWatson: The new Lyoko warriors; comes with the territory of being initiated into a years-long struggle against a psycho computer program.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: XANA claims to be one.
* WhamEpisode: Chapter 29; Armageddon Parts 2 and 3.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: The AIs created by the Lyoko Warriors' DNA often go into the issue, especially [[spoiler:Cyrus, before his death]].
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: [[spoiler:Seraphim. Subverted in that he's actually one of the good guys.]]
* TheWorfEffect: The original Code Lyoko gang gets hid with this hard due to XANA's upgrade in the beginning.
* YankTheDogsChain: Aelita at the beginning; applies later [[spoiler:to Courtney and Duncan]].
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Trent's talk to Gwen in chapter 61.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Aelita's pink hair is frequently mentioned [[spoiler:and Gwen's hair becomes all-blue after the infection of XANA's virus]].
* ZombieApocalypse: One of the show challenges as well as a following XANA attack.

If anyone wants to help me with this page, I'd be a big help.
