    Staff 

Chris Maclain: The Sadistic Host.

The Host of the show! Also one of three producers of the Total Drama Franchise.

  • Bad Boss: Though the producer is higher ranked than him. This comes to play during his downfall near the end of the story. It also seems to be false, as Chris is talking with the other two producers at the end of Letterama.
  • The Bus Came Back: He surprisingly returns in Total Drama Letterama's epilogue...though he doesn't become the host and is no longer as sadistic.
  • Butt Monkey
  • Freudian Excuse: Apparently, he had a tumor in his brain that caused him to act sadistic. This is revealed to be a lie in the Prologue of Letter Starz.
  • Groin Attack
  • Heel–Face Turn: Seems to go through one, at least partially, in the epilogue of Total Drama Letterama. Too bad it seems to be a complete lie, if the meeting with the producers in the epilogue of Letterama and prologue of Letter Starz is true.
  • Humiliation Conga: In the final chapter of Total Drama Letterz, he is fired by the producer and replaced by Spider and Quana. After that his 102 year old grandmother comes on stage and drags him off by the ear while saying he is grounded for three years and shall be spanked by her cane ... and this was on live international television. However, the epilogue of Letterama and Letter Starz in general seem to imply this was a set up.
  • It's All About Me
  • Knight of Cerebus: His scenes in TDL 3, along with Trina's and Matthew's, are not played for laughs at all.
  • Kick the Dog: He loves doing this to the campers just to get them upset but especially to Uzuri
  • Loves the Sound of Screaming
  • Took A Level In Jerk Ass: He started out a little mean but got worse at an alarming rate.

Chef Hatchet: The Cook With No Catering Talent.

  • The Apprentice: Gary is teaching him how to cook on the condition he gets to cook meals for his own team. Surprisingly Chef accepts as he wants to cook like his mama used to.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He openly voices when he thinks Chris is going too far and admits he sometimes feels a little guilty about what he does.

Matthew Gregson: The Professional Producer

One of three producers of the Total Drama Franchise.

  • Knight of Cerebus: His scenes, along with Trina's and Chris', are not played for laughs at all.

Trina Grey: The Charming Producer

One of three producers of the Total Drama Franchise.

  • Knight of Cerebus: Her scenes, along with Matthew's and Trina's, are not played for laughs, at all.

     Contestants debuting in Total Drama Letterz

Irene Redwood: The Tree Hugger

Irene in TDL3, as the Harsher In Hindsight

Ever had a gift you no longer want? I used to be able to talk to trees and it was #Epic. But now … I hear voices all the time and it's driving me nuts! Island nature shout help, right?

Quana Silva: The Sexy Singer.

Quana in TDL3, still as the Sexy Singer

Hindsight is 20/20. Upon rewatching the last two seasons, I've seen I'm not the sweetie or role model I thought I was … at all. I'm gonna win, but I'm also make things right. Not for me, but for them.

Raven Okri: the Shy Girl

Raven in TDL3, as The Cute Friend Maker

My main goal is to make a lot of friends. You know, I'm not so shy anymore … and if I'm liked, I may not be voted off. I'll also stay away from bears.

Spider Garnet: The Sick Kid.

Spider in TDL3, as The Sweet Medic

Even now, I'm not sure how I won my season. I'm not in need of more money, but I'll give it my all. Really, I just want to keep everybody out of harms way … my medical know-how should help with that.

Tabitha Barrington: The Manipulator

Tabitha in TDL3, as The Defrosted Ice Queen

I may have escaped my life of abuse … but what I did in the first season still hurts me. I'm gonna play nice and gentle. I haves much on my mind, but with Rheneas, I'll be okay. Game on, I guess.

Uzuri Taiver: The Sweet Sadist

Uzuri in TDL3, as The Fan Service

Hiiiii everybody! Missed me? You know, a lot of girls who get far on this show are really pretty, so … just call me Ms Fanservice! I look sexy as a zombie, eh, eh? Yay!

Vinnie Kapustin: The Guy with a Metal Arm'

Vinnie in TDL3, as an Intern

  • Out of Focus: Other than a scene early on with Uzuri, he has done nothing much of importance.

Wallace Magenta: The Wannabe Bad Guy

Wallace in TDL3, as The BAD GUY

I'm a dick. I'm also dastardly. Thus, cosplaying as Dick Dastardly was only common sense. I may not be "evil," but in this game you can bet I'll be pulling quite a few tricks! Mwahahaha! Man, that laugh feels good!

Xaria in TDL3, as a host.

Yessica Bubbler: The Born Swimmer.

Zita Grudlock: The Thief

Zita in TDL3, as an Intern

     Contestants debuting in Total Drama Letterama 

Alice Gatobel: The Type A

Alice in TDL3, as the Stern and Firm

Leadership and a temper combined led to a loss, like last season. This time, I'm just sitting back and letting the idiots destroy each other.

Bishop Paladin, the Mean Rich Boy

Bishop in TDL3, as The Rich Snob

It seems only nice guys win this game. Thus, I'll *shudder* be nice and start no fights. But, if somebody starts at me, I'll show them I can be one truly nasty fucker.

  • Gone Horribly Right: Teaches Jimmy lessons on how to be mean. It worked a bit too much after Jimmy emulated Kim.
  • Jerkass: Openly acknowledges how much of a dick he is, and laughs about it.
  • It Amused Me: His reason for messing with Alice so often.
  • Troll: Makes a sport out of 'Alice Baiting'.

Donny in TDL3, as an Intern

  • Out of Focus: Only appeared to cart off the frozen contestants after they were frozen back on Wawanakwa.

Eddie Lynmoire, the Detective

Eddie in TDL3, as the Level-Headed Guy

I sure was an amateur at solving mysteries, wasn't I? *Chuckles* No more detective now, jut regular me … a guy who recently got into binge watching Survivor. I think I got a good plan.

  • Dumbass No More: He's realized since last season that he was pretty terrible at being a detective and has eschewed the whole gimmick.
  • Expy: Seems to have become one to Richy. Design-wise, he's practically a palette-swap of Hans, by the same author.

Fripp Skip, the Blockhead

Fripp in TDL3, as an Intern

Gordon Duff, the Alcoholic Asshole

Gordon in TDL3, as an Intern

Helen Grey, the Anti Fun Girl

Helen in TDL3, as The Dull As Dishwater

This crazy show is FAR too exciting. I'll probably have a heart attack, also too exciting, and then die, way too exciting. I leave my paperclip collection to my mum.

Imanda Walson, the Girl Scout

Imanda in TDL3, as The Adorkable Dork

I finished the girl scouts with every badge! Now I lead my own group … but also, I am sorely lacking a boyfriend. I'm gonna try to be less of a geek and more cool so I can be noticed.

Jill Natz, the Sarcastic Chick

Jill in TDL3, as an Intern

Kim Rosefelt, the Dangerous Flirt

  • Ascended Fanboy: It's revealed in the bonus chapter that she's a very big fan of Survivor.
  • Beauty Is Bad
  • Cluster F-Bomb: She has a... colorful vocabulary, to say the least, at least in the Confessional and even in the bonus chapter.
  • Covert Pervert
  • Crazy-Prepared: After watching Letterz and realizing she would be unable to access her pills during Letterama, she made a video explaining lots of things she was afraid she'd do, clearing up most of the things she did in her past, and showing her face to the online world and submitted it two days before she competed on the show. And, as a result of the bonus chapter, this was clearly a very good decision.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Implied with her parents, if her aftermath interview is anything to go by. Confirmed in the bonus chapter when she finally reunites with them in the therapist's house after two weeks.
  • Faux Affably Evil
  • Foil: Kim is essentially what happens when you take Tabitha, remove the redeeming qualities she had, take her atrocities Up to Eleven, and make her hate anyone that isn't part of her ethnicity.
  • Frameup: How she eliminates Yannis the first time, by making the other campers think that he wrote a vicious hate note to Sasha when in fact she was the one responsible.
  • Freudian Excuse: Apparently everything she does throughout the season is due to severe depression, and it's implied that something happened in her past intense enough to cause it. She also had no pills for the duration of Letterama as a result of her contract, and based on her reactions in the bonus chapter, her pills clearly help her a lot.
  • Gold Digger: She desires to use Eddie to get her through the game by becoming his girlfriend, and then telling him what she really thought about him at the finals so that she won't have any competition.
  • Hate Sink: Barney and Yannis both consider her to be worse than Kasimar.
  • The Heavy: Of the pre-merge.
  • Humiliation Conga: Hoo boy... Upon Yannis's return, he exposed Kim of who she really was, had her Idol switched with the fake one by Lankston, got her plans to burn Sasha exposed to Spider and Quana, getting her disqualified at the Campfire, was forced to beg for the fake idol by acting like a pig, was tossed via the Hurl of Shame... and that was on the Island. Upon her interview, she gets disowned by her parents for the horrible things she had done, and sent to Juvie.
    • Fortunately, things improve for her as soon as she gets to Juvie in the bonus chapter. It's revealed that she gets a letter from her parents after two days with pictures of good memories she had with them when she was younger, the burned disownment papers, and a heartwarming letter, and after two weeks, she gets put under house arrest to a very kind therapist and reconnects with her parents.
  • Knight of Cerebus: You thought Kasimar was bad...
  • Lack of Empathy: Though she's pretty skilled at faking it.
  • Large Ham
  • Manipulative Bitch: Even more so than Tabitha.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: She was able to watch SAW in full without flinching on a dare.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: She refers to Sasha and Opal with hateful ethnic slurs ... though only in the confessional. And then there is the note she left for Sasha...
  • Sex for Services: She has sex with Kasimar (off screen) after he finds the immunity Idol for her as she requested.
  • The Sociopath: She effectively pretends to be a friend to Sasha and Eddie. In truth, she was anything but a friend to them.
  • Unholy Matrimony: With Kasimar after a few episodes.
  • Valley Girl: Intentionally put on.

For tropes pretaining to Kim for TDL 3, see the The Kim-Along-Gang folder

Lankston Gallows, the Condescending One

Lankston in TDL3, as The Confident Man

It may be an All-Star round without Nina, but I think I have what it takes to win. Why?It took a mutant spider to get me out last time. Game on.

  • The Generic Guy: He tends to fade into the background compared to his teammates.

Max Austinine, the Nerdy Robotier

Max in TDL3, as an Intern

Opal Shigeru, the Trilingual Basket Case

Opal in TDL3, as The Ray Of Sunshine

Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun! This is gonna be awesome! An all star season means all the best players are gonna be here … that means the fun ones right? Eh, as long as I have fun, I'm happy. :)

  • Verbal Tic: Played with. Though she no longer laughs spontaneously, she now adds emoticons to the ends of her sentences, though this one is intentional and she does drop it after a while.

Paul Foster, the Germaphobe

Paul in TDL3, as The Life Liver

Last season, I was full of so many issues and pains, things I needed help with. Now that the past is just that, I can finally live for the here and now. I'm gonna do it all!

  • Keet: Is much more so than in his last appearance.

Quarla Grim, the Aggressive Girl

Quarla in TDL3, as The Loner Bully

I'm in this for myself only. I'll just stand back and keep to myself. If I don't "bully" people, they'll not cry and vote me off.

Rheneas Scorch, the Rebellious Pyromaniac

Rheneas in TDL3, as The Badass

Last season I placed second due to the focus I put helping the love of my life. I don't regret it for a nanosecond. This time I'll have both the prize and the girl. Let's burn!

Sasha Tasset, the Bubbly Gamer

  • Badass Pacifist: She develops this in spades when she manages to stop herself from punching Kim when she was experiencing so many negative emotions and outright tells Kim 'she's better than that.'

  • Shout-Out: She gives these to several video games, both popular and obscure.
  • Token Minority: She is the only contestant of Indian nationality.

Sasha in TDL3, as The Nervous Gamer

I'm happy to be back ... but also scared. Last season was so tough, and stressful. It's making me expect the worst this time. I'm sure it'll be fun, really, but … if I expect the worst, it can't surprise me.

  • Broken Bird: Last season took a toll on her, to the point where she isn't quite as bubbly as she used to be.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Slightly less sweet than last season.

Tyson Sebsan, the Cool Rocker

Tyson in TDL3, as the Cohost

  • Out of Focus: Is only around to interview the eliminated contestants.

Ulric Sly, the Tough Guy

Ulric in TDL3, as an Intern

Vayvay Mittens, the Philosophical Hippie

VayVay in TDL3, as The Dazed Hippie

I'm just here for a good time. Make some memories, make more friends, win a second time, kiss Paul in the moonlight, and all that doo dah. Peace, dudes.

  • Out of Focus: She doesn't do very much in this season, which is partially due to her early elimination.

Xyly Magnus, the Viking

Xyly in TDL3, as an Intern

Yannis Kumatora, the Mute Guy

Yannis in TDL3, as an Intern

Zed Yenner, the Farmer

Zed in TDL3, as The Easy-Going Farm Boy

If you go into this game looking for trouble, you're going to find it. I'm just gonna take it easy and relax my way through. Opal has enough pep for the both of us, I reckon.

  • Out of Focus: Like VayVay, he isn't too prominent in the plot, due to his early elimination.

     The "Kim-Along Gang" 

Kim - The Recovering Girl

OK interns, move out and get to it. I'd love to stay around, except not really and I need to take my pill, like, NOW.

  • Deadpan Snarker: Shows shades of this quite often, especially when presented with the three interns on the roof of the Mess Hall.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Even though she's normally quite loud and angry when she isn't depressed, it gets to this level after Steve reveals he's a member of the FBI.
  • The Tease: Is still this, as shown by flirting with Steve once, although it isn't shown as much, since she isn't often in a good mood.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Didn't take too kindly to Steve actually being a member of the FBI. Nor did she react well to Rheneas pretty soon afterwards, in the middle of her tantrum, and nearly kicked him at full force.

Clyde - The Lazy Chicago Boy

Yeah, I'm glad ta be able ta see da action and da drama, but dis work cuts into my nap time!

Jennifer - The Bloodcurdling

People let fear control them. Fear lets me control it.
