This fanfic Total Drama Stranded provides examples of:
The Ace: Garfield. An overall nice guy with a vast array of skills.
Ambiguously Gay: Keith. He kisses Stanley to make him feel better, which is followed with a confessional where he states his own sexuality is "irrelevant" and that he just wants to keep Stanley on his side. Whether he is gay or not is never made clear.
Anti-Hero: Pamela is a Type V. Several other characters could qualify.
The Apprentice: Stanley for Sasha, although she calls him her "squire."
Cassandra Truth: Pamela seems to be the only one to see the true side of characters like Misha and Keith; yet since she's a jerk to everyone, they are hesitant to believe her.
Character Check: After spending the last few chapters getting cuddly with Elijah, Desdemona regretfully uses him as another scapegoat like she had done with so many others since she does not want to lose.
Easily Forgiven: Desdemona admits to Elijah that she used him as a scapegoat. He forgives her instantly. Bonus points for also being the only one to forgive her for lying to all of them about being a psychic.
Enemy Mine: Occasionally, certain characters will team up with others they don't like to get rid of bigger threats. Pamela is a prime example, as while she doesn't like a lot of people, she hates Keith even more.
Genre Savvy: Despite the fact the contestants realize Pamela is right about Keith playing all sides of the game to get himself ahead, they vote her out over him anyway since they know Pamela will be harder to beat in the finale than him.
Graying Morality: Starts of with some fairly straightforward heroes and villians, before everyone begins to show flaws and sympathies. Chelsea stands out as a prime example, staring off as a conventionally good character, than becoming more rounded out.
Grey and Gray Morality: Nearly everyone has their flaws and sympathetic moments, as well s motivations for their various strategies.
A Lighter Shade Of Gray: However, some contestants are definitely portrayed as being nicer than others, such as Ilona and Garfield compared to Misha and Jason.
Wildcard: Riley, of all people. With multiple people thinking they can use him as an extra vote for their agendas, his vote ends up being very important in the power struggle. Unfortunately, he doesn't really to care.
Wrong Genre Savvy: Rusty. He believes that he is The Big Bad that this gives him immunity. Unfortunately there are much more competent villains than him.
The sequel Total Drama Strandarama provides examples of:
Aerith and Bob: Continuing from the first story, Aloysius, Renada, and Washington compete against Sandy, Betty, and Drew.
