Combining the intense action of Code Lyoko and the hilarity of Total Drama, 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 (Over 700k words, 100+ chapters and counting.)Code Total Drama Reality is set two years after Code Lyoko 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.Now with a work-in-progress character sheet.
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 mentor / leader of the team.
Eva: Dressed like a brawler and fights like one too. Uses shockwaves with quite a few uses.
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 The Psycho Rangers. 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 Super Mode. 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 redlightning attacks. Ryder is pretty cocky and is quick to lose his temper.
Yuki of the Blizzard: Based off of Yumi. Yuki is a graceful 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 cool-headed in battle
Lilith of the Mirage: Based off of Jeremy. (Bet you didn't see that coming!) Lilith wields a bow and special arrows and is a Master of Illusion as well as portals and creation. Lilith tends to have the personality of little girl and is pretty mischievous. 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. 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 very big, gruff, and powerful, as he demonstrated by throwing a megatank in the air and ripping it in half. 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 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.
The Ace: Seraphim, a hyper-competant A.I. designed by Robby.
Action Girl: All of the female Lyoko warriors and generals. Also Lindsay in the virtual zombie challenge.
Affably Evil: Sora, which contrasts directly with his "mother" Heather.
And I Must Scream: 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. Aelita's mother took the last option after Lyon had imprisoned her in the digital realm. Then, in a magnificent twist of Death by Irony, Lyon also becomes trapped in a digital isle by XANA.
Badass Bookworm: Aelita; eventually Cody and Noah as well. There's also Lesley, as seen below.
Badass Bystander: 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.
Badass Normal: The two main 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.
Character Development: 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 Alpha Bitch status.
Chekhov's Gunman: Robby, who showed up as a technical assistant at TDR, is revealed to be Waldo Schaeffer's former student and the creator of Seraphim.
Chekhov's Skill: 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.
Click Hello: Cody attempts this on XANA. It doesn't work.
Combo Platter Powers: 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.
Common Tongue/Translation Convention: 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."
Compensating for Something: 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.
Continuity Porn: 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).
Cool Helmet: Sora's eagle helmet, with the added benefit that it can shoot lasers.
Costume Porn: 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 Van Helsing flavor to them.
Evil Brit: XANA's avatar has a slight British accent.
Executive Meddling: 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.
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; Jeremy and Lilith and Noah and Blade are probably the most jarring cases.
"Freaky Friday" Flip: It happens to Gwen and Izzy in ch.62 but not in the usual way. Their skin, eyes, and hair swap colors and parts of their personality go the other. None the less Hilarity Ensues.
Gadgeteer Genius: Noah in the robot building challenge, and surprisingly enough, Lindsay.
Gay Paree: For the most part averted, since it's still set in the same suburb from Code Lyoko. But it is still Total Drama, so some aspects are used for comedic effect, particularly in the first challenge.
Graceful Loser: Even when Noah is struggling in a project for the first time in creating his multi-agent program to counter XANA and when said program backfires and accidentally gives Shadow a major power upgrade, he takes it in stride with a healthy amount of Heroic Self-Deprecation.
Grand Theft Me: Heather and Gwen have had their bodies taken over by Shadow and XANA respectively.
Groin Attack - typically called the "Kick of a Billion Years of Pain."
Halfway Plot Switch: 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 creating an all-powerful AI himself.
Last Request: A unique variation; 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.
Noodle Incident: 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.
Nothing Is the Same Anymore: Lyoko's reformatted so that now people have all their senses and there are actually temperatures in each sector, along with four new sectors.
Not-So-Innocent Whistle - Chef, Duncan, and Cody each preform one... after effectively turning Chris into a walking pizza.
Obfuscating Stupidity: More like Obfuscating Insanity; Izzy does get her situation as a Lyoko Warrior a lot better than she lets on.
On the Next: The author's note (chapter 53) has an extensive one.
One Name Only: Averted for several Total Drama characters using non-canon surnames.
Only a Flesh Wound: 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.
Papa Wolf: Kurt and Carlos both qualify big-time; Carlos especially since he actually is a father to triplets.
The Plan: Pulled off by XANA in multiple occasions 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.
Real Men Hate Sugar: Averted; Roberto loves all of the good sweets while judging in the confectionary challenge.
Reconstruction: 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 Better as Friends 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. Duncan meanwhile never actually gave up on Courtney, but her controlling personality and her 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 become allies in Lyoko.
Trigger Happy: 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!
The Voiceless: XANA also averts this part of his old self and hoo boy, does he have a lot of things to say.
Twitchy Eye: Heather does this when Sora says he was made from her DNA and called her mom.
Unexplained Recovery: 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. After a Return to the Past, he then goes back to the robot suit.
Volleying Insults: Noah and Sora engage in a pretty harsh round of this in their first battle.
