Added DiffLines:

* Expy: Cedric is based on Dr. Facilier.


* DarkerAndEdgier: This story much is darker then Total Drama canon with elements such as a supernatural serial killer sneaking aboard the plane and taking the contestants hostages. The stakes are higher with the contestants lives in more danger, [[spoiler: and even the word at stake.]]

Added DiffLines:

* KickTheSonOfABitch: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]. Cedric's cruel and horrifying actions towards Alejandro and Duncan are not shown to be deserving and in fact invoke some sympathy for them.
** Like in canon Alejandro is a lying, back-stabbing snake, who charms everyone he comes across to further his own placing in the game, and votes them out once they have been lulled into a false sense of security. [[spoiler: However, his torture to near death and soul stealing by Cedric was horrifying and it is made clear that despite Alejandro's actions throughout the game, he does not deserve what happened to him.]]
** While at first it was amusing to see Cedric picking on Duncan and tormenting him much like the latter would do to Harold in canon, it stops being funny when Cedric's abuse of Duncan grow worse and you see how much danger his life really is in. [[spoiler: This comes to a head when Duncan decides to rebel against Cedric, he beats Duncan within an inch of his life, and it's made clear than even if Duncan is at is worst, and if he never reforms he still does not deserve that beating.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DarkHorseVictory: [[spoiler: In spite of his ButtMonkey status and frequently being placed to the side in canon, Tyler ends up winning Total Drama World Tour and the prize money that came with it due to a last second loophole.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Reconstruction}}
** While heavily Deconstructed over the course of the first story, Duncan's character is also reconstructed in the second half of Voodoo's Disciple. After realizing how foolish he'd been acting, Duncan decides stopping Cedric is more important then his bad boy image, and he does everything in his power to stop him and ultimately decides to go straight. By embracing his good side and doing the right thing, he was able to stop Cedric and turn his life around. He broke up with Gwen shortly after World Tour but still maintains their friendship, unlike in canon where Gwen can't stand him. He got a new girlfriend outside of the game, and developed a more positive relationship with his family.


* SerialKiller: Cedric, operating under the moniker of the Mad Hatter Killer and [[spoiler: the Zodiac Killer.]]

to:

* SerialKiller: Cedric, Cedric is the Hedonistic type, who get sadistic pleasure in killing and mutilating his victims while operating under the moniker of the Mad Hatter Killer and [[spoiler: the Zodiac Killer.]]


* JerkToNiceGuyPlot: This series can be seen as one for Duncan, at Voodoo's Disciple Duncan was a jerkass bully who cheated on his girlfriend. Then when a supernatural serial killer has appears and [[spoiler: forced Duncan to work for him]], despite the danger he and the other contestants are in, Duncan is more concerned with his bad boy rep and avoiding being seen as good than using his knowledge to expose Cedric to the others. In the third act he realize how dumb that is and [[spoiler: decided stopping Cedric was more important then being seen as a bad boy, even performing a HeelFaceTurn.]] In the sequel Malevolence Duncan had become nicer, become friends with Cody, broke up with Gwen but stay friends with her, got a new girlfriend and it look like he turn his life around, unlike his canon counterpart.

* MisanthropeSupreme: Cedric who want sees humans as weak pathetic creatures, comparing them to end the world.livestock at one point.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Deconstruction}}:
** The story's plot can be seen as a deconstruction of Total Drama All-Stars. Like All Stars, a KnightOfCerebus [[spoiler: possesses one of the contestants]], and Duncan is the only one to know what danger they are in. However unlike All Stars, this story shows how horrifying this situation can be, as Cedric is a realistic example of a sociopathic criminal; he has no problem killing or mutilating the contestants or even people unrelated to the game simply for fun. And unlike Mal, Cedric does not care for the contest or its prize, and is only in it for his own amusement.
** Duncan's character is also deconstructed over the course of the story. Like in All-Stars Duncan knew there was someone in the game who was a danger to the other contestants, and although he knew the danger they were all in, Duncan is more concerned with his bad boy rep. However, in this story Duncan's actions are portrayed as dumb and cowardly, and numerous characters call him out on it. Also, Duncan being a JerkWithAHeartOfGold is deconstructed, as in canon he is shown to have a good side and care about his friends, despite being a bully and a thug. Like in All-Stars, he tries rejecting his good side to prove he is still a bad boy. However, he ends up proving himself wrong by showing that despite appearing to be a tough guy, he is really a coward who would rather protect his reputation then do the right thing, and having a good side does't matter since he rejected it by choosing to be a bad person.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilerThanThou: Cedric is this to every other villain in the series, most notably Chris and Alejandro.

Added DiffLines:

* ForcedIntoEvil: [[{{Jerkass}} While he wasn't the nicest guy to begin with,]] [[spoiler: Duncan is clearly unhappy with being blackmailed into working for Cedric.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ATasteofTheirOwnMedicine: While [[spoiler: he's blackmailing him]] Cedric takes great pleasure in picking on Duncan and tormenting him much like the latter would do to Harold in canon. Chris even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this at one point.
-->'''Chris:'''I thought I hit a gold mine with that kiss back in London! With the hate Duncan's been getting lately with 75% of the fan base, seeing him on the other side of the punch will totally be ratings central! I just wish wasn't a wanted criminal holding us all hostage.
