Total Drama Do Over is a Total Drama Fix Fic created by CoGreen20 (as well as a slowly expanding writing team) on Deviant ART. The episode structure is essentially the same as that of the original Total Drama, but with different outcomes.

The series has every challenge in the show's canon, give or take a few; but the first season includes every character up to Season Four and seven Original Characters, plus two submitted by fans. This leads to different interactions and eliminations. With the fourth season Total Drama Revenge Do Over, sixteen other original characters, made by DeviantArt users, were added to the roster.

The current season is Total Drama Ridonculous Race Do Over, consisting of characters from the canon Spin-Off Total Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race, including the new characters from the canon spinoff, canon characters that did not appear in the canon spinoff, and some OCs including one new one, Michael.

This fanfiction includes examples of:

  • Cliffhanger : First episode of Island.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Izzy, Sierra, and Abigail are the prominent examples of this.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: "Geeky Love".
  • Creator In-Joke: Done often, especially in the extra episode where Vanessa, Anne Maria and Mama DJ go to the mall and in the alternate ending for Island.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Abigail.
  • Darker and Edgier: Brunch of Disgustingness. Primarily due to Owen's severe poisoning and Zoey's emotional backstory. It breaks away from the normal comedic routine.
    • All Stars, due to Mal and his dark backstory and acts as the antagonist, as well as his actions towards Bridgette and Zoey.
      • The season is also darkier and edgier than the canon counterpart, given how much of the fanbase found canon Mal underwhelming
    • Scarlett is arguably the most terrifying villain, to the degree Nicole was on the show just to track her down. .
  • Deadpan Snarker: Noah maintains this role, with other characters as well, especially Tanner.
  • Double Entendre: "Hehe...Cody ties knots."
  • Redemption Equals Death: Dave.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The first two seasons use more inside jokes and references and are much less dramatic and adult than the later seasons.
  • Everyone Can See It: Noah and Abigail don't officially start dating until That's Off The Chain and the hints were extremely blatant. Owen seems to support them and notes it, and later the rest of the cast follows.
    • Nicole and Leonard in TDRDO.

  • Important Haircut: Will cutting his bangs in the Christmas special, indicating his moving past being a loner.

      • In All Stars, she receives her karma for cheating on Duncan with Alejandro, then on Alejandro with Jose when she is eliminated and dumped by all three.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: Vanessa and Sammy.
  • Long-Lost Relative: Subverted with Abigail and Colton, as Chris rigged the door panel to tell them they were related.

  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Mel, especially in Pahkitew.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Adam has shades of this in TDRRDO, most notably a scene that vividly describes how Adam is chasing a rhea
    • (Adam can be seen. For some reason though, he’s carrying a giant rhea… and is sweating…His white shirt is practically see-through at this particular moment...when he lifts his shirt though to expose the abs as he pants softly from the workout and heat. He wipes his forehead with his shirt)
  • Mugged for Disguise: Vanessa by Heather in Action.

    • Giselle points out the Foe Yay between Harrison and Colton multiple times, though this is subverted with Harrison being actually bisexual.
  • Nepotism: Topher tries to invoke this in Ridonculous as he is Don's son. It doesn't work.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Bridgette, on the heroic hamsters no less, winds up being the person to accidentally unleash Mal. Subverted when Mal is actually the first personality and has been repressed over the years to the will of his abusive parents
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Scarlett believes Ella is doing this.
    • Krystal's strategy is based off of utilizing this to lower everyone's expectations about her.

  • Out-of-Character Moment: There are multiple instances of these.

    • Abigail becomes almost creepily hateful and sadistic towards Duncan at times.
    • Noah agrees to chase squirrels.
    • Will smiles at times. He even cut off his bangs that covered his eyes after he saved everybody's lives during the Christmas Special.
    • The entirety of "Muddy Sundae Muddy". It is totally played for laughs however.
  • Precision F-Strike: Scott says "piss" in "Celebrity Manhunt Part 3".
    • Leonard: "I shall not piss!"
  • Put on a Bus: At the end of the second Celebrity Manhunt special, [[spoiler:Felicity returns to Equestria through a portal and transforms into Applejack because the creator simply got bored with her.
  • Refuge in Vulgarity: At first, the sketchy are subtle and few. With Mel's introduction, however...
  • Retcon: The original Shin/Bridgette plotline in Island with them being cousins was replaced with Shin being gay a few years later to be more inclusive and more logical.
  • Sassy Black Woman: LeShawna maintains this role, but Mama DJ takes it Up to Eleven in Action.
    • Mystery Meat parodies this, despite being sentient meat rather than a black woman.
  • "Shaggy Dog" Story: Throughout "Search and Do Not Destroy", Harold is reluctant to go into the girls' bunks where his key is. It was on the front steps of the cabin the whole time.
  • Shout-Out:
    • In the second aftermath, a guest named Trixie who talks in the third person appears. In the first, a peppy, cupcake loving girl named Penny (submitted by Mew) is a guest.
    • "Total Drama Drama Drama Island" has the "They all collided and crashed!" part. The actual text is a little too long to paste, but it included phrases such as "TwIlIgHtSpArKlE", "JamesXJessie", "PiNkIepIe", "ILIlIkEtUrTLeS", and more.
    • Mama DJ has an "Our Tiny Horses" watch and Harold is part of the fan club.
    • An April Fool's episode that was just the word "mayonnaise" copied and pasted all over again, as a reference to Teen Nick's 2013 April Fool's joke by playing the so-called lost Rocko's Modern Life episode that turned out to be a jar of mayonnaise playing for 30 minutes.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Sierra still remains this, but by Action, in the aftermath, she acts more like a drama-invoker similar to Geoff in the canon TDA Aftermaths.
  • Straight Gay: Several examples:
    • Shin as revealed in Total Drama World Tour Do Over, shocking due to his previous relationship with Bridgette.
    • Michael in The Ridonculous Race Do Over once he explicitly flirts with Jacques.
  • Take That!: In the mall special, a boy named Brady is used as bait for Fredwina. Brady was the name of an enemy of CoGreen20.
    • Zoey is the runner-up of Island, but doesn't win in the alternate ending. Word of God has suggested it is because CoGreen hates her too much to let her win.
    • Tons against the canon Total Drama. TDWTDO and TDASDO take a ton of potshots towards the canon season five especially.
  • Token Good Teammate: Sky in her alliance with Krystal and Tanner.
    • Leshawna in All Stars, though other members of her team eventually face redemption.
  • Wham Line: Near the end of "Error! Sanity Not Found":
  • Wham Episode: At least one per season, but highlights include:
    • World Tour has "Loch Where You're Going". The fan favorite, Abigail, is eliminated and Duncan dumps Courtney for Mel.
    • All Stars gets it MUCH harder in "Defiled". Mal is revealed to be the main personality and is eliminated, Chef replaces Chris temporarily, and the final two is revealed to be Bridgette and Jo.
      • Even before that, Word of God considers "Saving Private Leechball" to be one, since Mike as Mal abuses Zoey, who proceeds to break up with him, and her percieved deception means she is eliminated
    • "Pitching Pahkapella" in Pahkitew: Mel kisses Charlotte and then musically breaks up with Trent, who then has a breakdown and hits Geoff, who he thinks took Charlotte from him.
    • "Tisket, Casket, Blow a Gasket" in Ridonculous Race: Vanessa and Anne Maria reveal that they were fired from Giselle's company by a committee member for suupposedly being lesbian together. Alejandro and Heather get slapped by Dwayne after they insult Junior. Stephanie and Ryan break up after Stephanie is too competitive and emotionally drains Ryan.
  • What Did I Do Last Night?: In "Walk Like An Egyptian: Part 1", after the contestants have a party on the plane.
