      • The infamous "Sundae Muddy Sundae" as "Sundae Destroyer Sundae" or "Sundae Bloody Sundae".
      • "The Bold and the Booty-ful" is often referred to as "The Bold and the Bears**t-full" (or something along those lines).

  • The Wiki Rule: Here.

  • Creator's Favorite: Owen to Tom McGillis, and Cameron to Ed MacDonald. Sugar has also been accused of being one.
    • Also apparently, Duncan to Todd Kauffman and Alex Naussbaum.
  • Development Gag: He looks a lot like DJ's original design (which is used frequently as an intern).
  • Franchise Killer: All-Stars came close to this, as many fans have boycotted the series. It might very well have been had Pahkitew Island not followed it up.
  • No Export for You: While the Castilian dub (Spain) only aired season one, neither Germany nor Japan have their hands on the series, as of July 2014.
  • Old Shame: All-Stars is this to both Tom McGillis and Jennifer Pertsch.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Christian Potenza originally auditioned to voice Ezekiel, but was persuaded by Tom McGills to voice Chris..
    • The Island episode "Haute Camp-ture" was supposed to feature a Fashion Show-esque challenge, but the idea was dropped at the last minute. The episode's title was changed to "After the Dock of Shame" in some TV guides.
    • World Tour was originally to be called Total Drama, the Musical, feature only 15 contestants, and including visits to locations such as Italy, Hershey, Scotland, and Toronto, none of which made it in the final product note .
    • Revenge of the Island has a few:
      • Cameo appearances by Leshawna, Harold, and Tyler were planned but scrapped the last minute. All three still made brief cameos along with the rest of the original characters in the first episode.
      • Revenge of the Island was also much different in it's early stages.
      • According to this article from 2008, Revenge of the Island was also originally called Total Drama Comedy in it's very early planning stages.
    • According to Word of God, the original All-Stars line-up included Owen, Cody and Brick, but last minute decisions had them replaced with Gwen and Sam, and the cast cut down to 14. However Owen still managed to get a cameo in the finale, and Cody got frequently mentioned by Sierra and had his face appear in hallucinations. The same line-up also revealed plots that didn't make it into the season such as Courtney getting revenge on Heather note , Duncan getting revenge on Courtney, the continuation of Zoey's commando persona, and Scott once again having evil intentions by creating a new and improved strategy after analyzing past Total Drama episodes.
      • Cody was dropped because they thought his relationship with Sierra had been fully played out in World Tour.
      • Brick was replaced by Sam because he was 'easier to write'.
      • Anne Maria was also a part of the original cast before being replaced by an Island competitor.
      • And then there's a recently discovered trailer from late 2011 (two months before Revenge of the Island aired and almost two years before All-Stars actually aired).
    • According to his character bio, Max from Pahkitew Island was said to have psychic powers that allowed him to see only 3 seconds into the future. No traits of his psychic powers were shown in the actual season and was simply the Big Bad Wannabe.
  • Working Title: "Break Back Mountain" became "Sky Fall".
