Trivia / The Legend of Total Drama Island

  • Actor Allusion: Lindsay's chronic name butchery sets up an example. According to the story's notes, her occasional rendering of "Gwen" as "Jen" is a reference to the 6Teen character, Jen Masterson, who has the same voice actress as Gwen.
  • Development Gag: Alejandro the intern once competed on a show called Camp TV, which got cancelled partly because of its bland name. The joke is that Camp TV was the original name of the show that became Total Drama Island, with the name being changed because the networks didn't think the original name was catchy enough.
  • Genius Bonus: The story has a goodly number of obscure references to go with all the famous ones. For the non-geniuses in the readership, there are always the footnotes.
  • Reality Subtext:
    • Sunshine is the alter ego of a certain Duncan fangirl, who created the character (used in this reimagining with permission) in part to be a Parody Sue proxy for her fangirlism.
    • The author describes himself and his wife as essentially a real-life Noah/Katie pair. Guess who Noah's crushing on?
