Fanfic: Total Drama Dictionary
What if the guys who made Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann found out about Total Drama, and wanted to do their own version?

The answer: Something like this...

Total Drama Dictionary is a Total Drama fanfic made by BaconBaka on Fanfiction Dot Net. It features 26 original characters, each representing a letter of the alphabet.

The story is here. It is in progress.

A word to the wise: Don't even try to apply logic to anything in this story. Your sanity will thank you.

Provides Examples Of:

  • Abusive Parents: Both Bob and Luka have them.
  • Accidental Kiss: One of these occur when Whitney kisses Tina out of success during the Kirby challenge, WHILE invincible due to the candy.
    • Another one occurs during the eating challenge when Isaac, in a sugar rush from New Coke, kisses Maxwell square on the lips.
  • Affably Evil: Danny and Selena.
  • Affectionate Parody: Of Total Drama Letterz, which the author is a big fan of. In fact it seems to be on of the entire series.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: A Courtney doll attacks the city during a challenge. Whitney takes care of it by growing 50 feet herself via one of Alec's potions.
  • Birthday Episode: Maxwell's birthday is celebrated on the show.
    • An earlier challenge involves a birthday party for a 6 year old.
  • Breather Episode: The episode that comes after Bob's Parents attack... Is a Teletubbies/Pikmin crossover.
  • Busman's Challenge: Two of the challenges takes place off the island.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Damn well everyone, but especially Ethan and Omelette.
  • Crapsack World: It seems like the island is the only place where not everyone is a Chaotic Evil Jerkass, if the campers' backstories are to be believed.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: A majority of the Campers have some kinda dark past.
    • Alec is bullied at school, due to having two mommies.
    • Bob was abused at home, prior to meeting Tina.
    • Isaac became a shut-in, due to some really bad bullying done to him, and his crush dying due to an illness.
    • Luka is a fan of animals, and her parents are poachers.
    • Maxwell was in poverty in his childhood.
    • Tina lost her parents in a car wreck, and bullying very nearly caused her to commit suicide.
    • Yuki was bullied very bad, resulting in her getting scarred.
  • Different in Every Episode: Yuki's face paint designs.
  • Friend or Idol Decision: Inverted as Tina is the one hanging off a cliff, and has to choose between her friend Maxwell who's holding on to her, or his manga, which was tossed off a cliff thanks to Selena. She chooses Maxwell, unknown to her that Maxwell's manga were safe the entire time.
  • Given Name Reveal: In episode 8, Yuki says that her real name is actually Katrina. She says her real name caused ALL sorts of bullying at school.
  • Ghost Ship: Some of the campers end up on one by mistake.
  • Heat Wave: One of these occurs in an episode, where the campers build sculptures. Isaac collapses from the heat in the process.
  • Heroic Resolve: When Knives (Yuki's bully) has Yuki pinned down and announces she wants to take out Bob, the fight turns around towards Yuki's favor.
  • Invincibility Power-Up: Whitney uses one during the Kirby challenge, destroying a path of enemies along the way, as thus kissing Tina. The Invincibility ran out mid kiss.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Luka's parents, Bob's family, Yuki's bullies and Peter.
  • Knight Templar: A good amount of the hero characters. But most notably Ross.
  • Lovable Nerd: A good portion of the characters could be considered this, with the exception of Peter.
  • Odd Couple: Xander, the Badass bug exterminator and Omelette, who is, Omelette, would normally be this, if it wasn't for the fact that every other couple is even weirder.
  • Pie in the Face: Vikki and Omelette does one of these to each other in the Jester bit of the Medieval Challenge.
  • Reverse Cerebus Syndrome: The story starts off a bit darkly, but quickly evolves into it's signature over-the-top lighthearted feel. While there is some dark episodes, the story never really hits Cerebus Syndrome.
  • Shout-Out: Here's the page!
  • Shoo Out the Clowns: Both Omelette and Whitney were voted out before the more dramatic episodes involving Luka's Parents, and a street gang.
    • They later return (Omelette as a contestant, and Whitney's helping with a challenge), but they get knocked out before Tina faces off against Lardna.
  • Take My Hand: Occurs after a challenge when Selena tosses Maxwell's bags of mangas over a cliff, pushes Tina over the edge of the cliff, and Maxwell saves Tina, who was in the process of saving Maxwell's mangas. She chose Maxwell, and his manga weren't in any danger, as they were swapped with Selena's fashion magazines earlier.
  • The Cameo: Trent, Bridgette, Cody, and Beth make cameos where they act as a 50's style family for Whitney's fear. Beth even gives Bob her autograph.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Not main villains Danny and Selena, but definitely the one-off villains like Bob's family.
  • White and Grey Morality: While there are some truly antagonistic villains in Peter, as well as Bob and Luka's parents, the main antagonists Danny and Selena aren't exactly what one would call evil.
  • World of Badass: No kidding. The physically strongest character in the story is an eleven-year-old girl.
  • World of Ham: Everyone indulges in being a Large Ham, even Selena and Issac.
