This page is for the season 4 contestants in the Toxic Rats team.²[[hardline]]²* [[Characters/TotalDramaHosts Hosts]]²* [[Characters/TotalDramaKillerBass Killer Bass]]²* [[Characters/TotalDramaScreamingGophers Screaming Gophers]]²* [[Characters/TotalDramaNewWorldTourContestants New World Tour Contestants]]²* [[Characters/TotalDramaMutantMaggots Mutant Maggots]]²* [[Characters/TotalDramaPimapotewKinosewak Pimâpotew Kinosewak (Floating Salmon)]]²* [[Characters/TotalDramaWaneyihtamMaskwak Waneyihtam Maskwak (Confused Bears)]]²* [[Characters/TotalDramaPresentsTheRidonculousRace Ridonculous Race Newcomers]]²* [[Characters/TotalDramaRama DramaRama]]²* [[Characters/TotalDramaOthers Others]]²----²[[foldercontrol]]²²[[folder:B, The Strong Silent Genius]]²[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/geniusb.png]]²²->''"..."''²²->''Voiced by:'' Unknown²²-->''Teams:'' Toxic Rats²²----²²* {{Acrofatic}}: Despite his size, he is fairly agile.²* BadassLongcoat: He keeps tools in his coat.²* ElectiveMute: It appears he ''can'' speak, but ''chooses'' not to. There are several times where he is about to say something but gets cut off. We finally get to here his voice in the form of a scream as he takes the Hurl of Shame.²* EmbarrassingFirstName: The B stands for B[[spoiler:everly]].²* {{Expy}}: Of [[Film/TheViewAskewniverse Silent Bob]], in both physical appearance and his speechless tendencies.²* {{Frameup}}: Scott frames him for sabotaging their team's fort in "Ice, Ice Baby".²* GadgeteerGenius: He somehow constructed a rocket sofa out of some junk he found.²* HugeGuyTinyGirl: In a non-romantic example, he is the Huge Guy to Dawn's Tiny Girl.²* TheLeader: He's a really ''good'' one, too, and were it not for Scott (and in the first episode's case, a DeusExMachina), he probably could have consistently led the Toxic Rats to victory. It's what makes Scott target him for elimination.²* OneLetterName: Until we find out it really stands for [[spoiler: Beverly]].²* TheSilentBob: Not surprising since he's an {{expy}} of the TropeNamer. So far, the only character to never actually speak, even in audition videos.²* SmartPeopleBuildRobots: Seen only in his audition video.²* StoryBreakerPower: Probably the real-life reason for his early elimination. With his ability to MacGuyver anything he wants with ridiculous precision, most challenges probably would’ve become a breeze for him and he would’ve had an unfair advantage over the other contestants. The writers probably had him leave early on because of this.²* VisibleSilence: Unlike other characters who often stand around because they don't have lines, emphasis is put on the fact B actually doesn't speak. He responds using [[TheSilentBob expressions and gestures]], and sometimes opens his mouth to speak but gets cut off. Also, in his [[http://totaldrama.wikia.com/wiki/Total_Drama:_Revenge_of_the_Island_contestant_biographies#B biography]], his answer to all his questions is "..."²* TheVoiceless: [[spoiler:Until he's catapulted off the island, sort of.]]²* WeHardlyKnewYe: While not being the first one out of the game, he never says a word and only lasts for three episodes.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Dakota, The Fame-Monger]]²[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/killedmcellphone.png]]²²->''"[[AttentionWhore I just want camera time]]. People need to see more of my [[{{Kawaiiko}} sparkly adorableness]] if I'm going to get my spinoff reality series."''²²-->''Voiced by:'' Carleigh Beverly²²-->''Teams:'' Toxic Rats, Mutant Maggots²²----²²* AbhorrentAdmirer: Sam, at first. She does seem to have warmed up to him when she returned to the island in "Ice, Ice, Baby."²* AnimeHair: [[spoiler:As Dakotazoid.]]²* AttentionWhore: Played with. It is exaggerated because Dakota has her own paparazzi entourage and will resort to almost anything to get her own reality series, yet it is also deconstructed because Dawn states that Dakota's need for fame is really a repressed cry for love.²-->'''Dakota''': Whoa! Who said you could pan away?²* BaldWoman: [[spoiler:She loses all of her hair in "A Mine is a Terrible Thing to Waste" after spending 40 minutes in the toxic waste mine on Chris' orders. It grows back in the next episode; however, it is bright green and a sign of her mutation]].²* BareYourMidriff: On her sleepwear, intern outfit, [[spoiler: and when she mutates]].²* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: After her begging and Chris being bribed by her father, she is allowed to return to the show...as an intern. [[spoiler:She eventually gets reinstated as a contestant against her will when Anne Maria quits]].²* BerserkButton: For photographers and video cameramen, ''never'' shift focus away from her.²* BigNo: ²** After she is eliminated for the first time and after Chris makes her an intern.²** She lets out another one when she looks in a mirror and find out that [[BaldWoman all her hair fell out.]]²* BodyHorror: Her hideous mutation.²* BrainlessBeauty: At first, it's [[JustifiedTrope justified]] because her family's fame, riches, and her good looks seem to have gotten her through life, but in "Runaway Model", it's [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed a bit]] when Sam asks her for fashion advice and she's positively delighted, since no one's actually asked for her advice about anything before.²* ButtMonkey: The inevitable result of being one of Chris' interns. Chris treats her as his personal [[TheChewToy Chew Toy]].²** She gets catapulted off the island a second time by Chris at the end of "Finders Creepers" for no reason [[ItAmusedMe other than sick laughs]].²** During the recap in "Backstabbers Ahoy", she gets dumped into the lake by Chef Hatchet and bitten by the mutant piranhas as a wake-up call. Later, while demonstrating the challenge, she is blown to a buoy in the middle of the lake and forced to fend off Fang.²** In "A Mine is a Terrible Thing to Waste", [[spoiler:she loses all her hair after spending too much time in the toxic mine shaft and is later forced back into the game after Anne Maria quits]].²** Then, in "The Treasure Island of Dr. [=McLean=]", [[spoiler: her prior exposures to radiation lead to an ComicBook/IncredibleHulk-esque transformation]].²* CrocodileTears: Pretends to cry in the confessional after the mutated squirrel incident in the first episode.²-->'''Dakota''': ''(sobbing)'' Chris is the meanest ever!! ''(stops sobbing)'' Hang on. ''(takes out her compact and checks her makeup)'' Not too blotchy. Okay, take two. ''(puts away her compact, clears her throat, then resumes sobbing)''²* CuteButCacophonic: She gives off a rather high pitched shriek when frightened, and her normal speaking voice is somewhat whiny.²* CuteMonsterGirl: [[spoiler:How Sam views her after her mutation.]]²* DarkSkinnedBlonde: Had lightly tanned skin [[spoiler:prior to her mutation.]]²* {{Determinator}}: She hang glides back to Camp Wawanakwa in order to get more camera time.²* DramaQueen: Because of her fame mongering, she can act as one occasionally.²* DumbBlonde: She's not ''as'' dumb as Lindsay; however, Dakota lacks [[RichInDollarsPoorInSense common sense]].²* FallenPrincess: Her desire for fame is implied to be this for her.²* TheFashionista: She gives Sam fashion advice in "Runaway Model". Also, she aspired to become a fashion model after ''Total Drama''.²* {{Foreshadowing}}: At the end of her audition tape she said she would be the biggest thing ever. [[spoiler:After being mutated by the nuclear waste, she's technically the biggest contestant the series has ever had]].²* FreakyIsCool: ²** She finds the mutant squirrel [[UglyCute cute]], wanting one as a pet, at least until it tried to zap her with its EyeBeams.²** [[spoiler:Dakota is initially worried that Sam will lose interest in her once he finds out about her mutation, but when they actually meet up he assures Dakota that he still adores her, and that he thinks her mutation just makes her ''more'' awesome. This is also brought up in an exclusive ''Revenge of the Island'' clip that's only in Polish.]]²* FriendlessBackground: A likely reason behind her fame mongering. In a confessional, she states that she has to start the "friending" process with Zoey after Sam was eliminated.²* GentleGiant: [[spoiler:Her post-mutation form is both powerful and intimidating but she only uses her strength against things she perceives as threats, such as angry crocodiles or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Chris]].]]²* HatesTheJobLovesTheLimelight: Especially during her time as an intern.²* HellishPupils: [[spoiler:Her eyes become red vertical slits after her mutation]].²* HumanoidAbomination: [[spoiler:As of "Treasure island of Dr. [=McLean=]".]]²* HulkSpeak: [[spoiler:After her transformation.]]²* IdolSinger: One of her aspirations in life after ''Total Drama''.²* IJustWantToBeLoved: According to Dawn, this is all Dakota wants. Judging from Dakota's reaction, Dawn proves to be right about that.²* InSeriesNickname: Sam and Chris call her [[spoiler: the Dakotazoid after she mutates.]]²* TheIntern: The only contestant (so far) to become one. She lasted from "Ice Ice Baby" until "A Mine is a Terrible Thing to Waste" [[spoiler:when Chris reinstates her as a contestant, much to her chagrin]].²* ItsAllAboutMe: Her reason for coming back to Camp Wawanakwa after her first elimination.²* {{Kawaiiko}}: Though not to the extent of [[ThoseTwoGuys Katie and Sadie]], Dakota mentions her "sparkly adorableness" as a reason why Chris should let her back on the show after her first elimination.²* LiteralMetaphor: [[spoiler: In her audition tape, she says that after she's done with ''Total Drama'', she'll be "the biggest thing ever". She ''did'' become the biggest thing ever after her mutation.]]²* TheLoad: Her [[AttentionWhore constant posing for the paparazzi]] made her a legitimate liability, [[TheMillstone costing her team the challenge in "Truth or Laser Shark"]]. However, this is averted in "The Treasure Island of Dr. [=McLean=]", where she saves her teammates from Fang and a mutated alligator [[spoiler:courtesy of her new found mutant SuperStrength]].²* LongHairIsFeminine: [[spoiler:Before she lost it all in the radioactive mine.]]²* LovableAlphaBitch: She shares the stereotypical behavior of an AlphaBitch, but is one of the nicer contestants.²* MagicPants: [[spoiler:Along with a Magic Top, as she mutates.]]²* MauveShirt: While she was an intern.²* MiseryBuildsCharacter: Before she was an intern, she spent all her screen time as a vapid, useless DaddysGirl.²* MsFanservice: [[spoiler:Pre-mutation at least.]]²* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Given her starlet attitude and rich daddy Mr. Milton, Dakota seems to be based on Creator/ParisHilton.²* NotAMorningPerson: As revealed in "Truth or Laser Shark".²-->'''Dakota''': I haven't had enough beauty sleep.²-->'''Sam''': Come on, you look... ''(Dakota takes off her sunglasses, revealing her baggy and bloodshot eyes)'' GREAT SUNS OF ORION!²* {{Paparazzi}}: She has an entourage of them on speed-dial before Chris took away her cell phone. Also, after Dakota becomes an intern, Chris puts a restraining order against her entourage.²* PinkMeansFeminine: Her online bio states that her favorite color is "pink, pink, pink", and her regular outfit consists of a pink tube top, pink ballet flats, and magenta pants.²* PutOnABus: A variation. While she can technically still appear in the series, she's unable to actively compete in the show while she's a mutant. Despite this, a Q&A has hinted she may eventually return.²* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[spoiler:Subverted, as she still retains her nice personality after her mutation.]]²* RichInDollarsPoorInSense: While her daddy has a lot of money, she is lacking in common sense.²* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: Her daddy bribes Chris to let her back on the show.²* SeriousBusiness: She treats having her picture taken as such.²* ShesGotLegs: Though she doesn't show them off, Dakota may have the longest legs of any female contestant. [[spoiler: After mutating, though, she is now the tallest contestant in ''Total Drama'' history.]]²* SmallNameBigEgo: More like "Big Name, Bigger Ego" given that she was already famous before joining ''Total Drama''.²* SpoiledSweet: Though her fame mongering could have easily played her up as a RichBitch, when it comes down to it, Dakota is actually one of the nicer campers.²* StockScream: She gives off a horror film scream after she coughs up mud in "Truth or Laser Shark". In fact, it is the same exact scream used in the slasher film that the original cast were viewing in "Hook, Line, and Screamer".²* StoryBreakerPower: Her [[spoiler: mutant form. With it, she gains super strength and she grows immensely in size. The writers probably had her voted off the island the same episode she mutated because they realized that Mutant Dakota was too strong and would’ve easily won many of the future challenges.]]²* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: ²** She is similar to Lindsay, being a fashionable, blonde, spoiled DaddysGirl. Unlike her predecessor, however, Dakota is less childish and ditzy, and can be a bit selfish at times.²** Her performance in ''Revenge of the Island'' parallels Ezekiel's performance in ''World Tour''. In their respective seasons, both were eliminated very early, insisted on returning, [[spoiler:and eventually mutated into literal monsters. Both of their transformations were fueled by their resentment of Chris and involved a change in skin color and hairstyle, as well as the loss of their footwear. The big difference, however, is that while Ezekiel becomes a feral, greed-driven parody of Gollum, Dakota retains her humanity for the most part]].²* ThirdPersonPerson: Occurs in "The Treasure Island of Dr. [=McLean=]", [[spoiler:after she mutates]].²* ThisIsUnforgivable: How she feels towards Chris, declaring him [[KarmicDeath a dead man]] after his mistreatment of her in "A Mine is a Terrible Thing to Waste" [[spoiler:when she loses all her hair and is reinstated as a contestant]]. The feeling becomes stronger [[spoiler:as she mutates]] in the following episode.²* ThrowTheDogABone: [[spoiler:Despite being mutated and eliminated, she hooks up with Sam at the end of "The Treasure Island of Dr. [=McLean=]"]].²* TinyGuyHugeGirl: [[spoiler:In her mutated form she's large enough that Sam can comfortably sit on her lap, which he is seen doing near the end of "The Treasure Island of Dr. [=McLean=]".]]²* {{Tsundere}}: Started off as Type A towards Sam, but eventually mellowed out to Type B.²* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: [[spoiler:After her mutation.]]²%% YouGottaHaveBlueHair is not a characterization trope, it's about an artistic convention, so don't list it here.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Dawn, The Moonchild]]²[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dawncute.png]]²²->''"[[AuraVision I can read people's auras]], and it looks like someone threw up on yours."''²²-->''Voiced by:'' Caitlynne Medrek²²-->''Teams:'' Toxic Rats²²----²²* ADayInTheLimelight: "Backstabbers Ahoy!" centered around Dawn and how she discovers Scott's true nature, before trying to unsuccessfully take him down.²* AllLovingHeroine: She is kind and [[TheEmpath empathetic]] to everyone, due to her AuraVision and tries to find the [[HiddenHeartOfGold good in everyone]], even Scott. However she makes an exception with him [[spoiler:when she finds out his true nature.]]²* AmbiguouslyHuman: Humorously hinted at since she seems to have powers no one else in the series has. ²* AuraVision: Dawn can use people's auras to learn about their past, or even see their future.²* BreakTheCutie: In "Backstabbers Ahoy", [[spoiler:she gets framed by Scott for stealing the other campers' possessions and voted out because of said {{Frameup}}, had her hopes gotten up with a fake immunity idol forged by Scott, and gets put into a garbage bag by Chef before being catapulted off the island]].²* CloudCuckooLander: The other campers view her as this.²* CreepyChild: In her the island she had managed to creep out several competitors with her ability to know personal information about them including: Zoey, Dakota, Lightning, and Scott. Lightning always refers to her as "creepy girl".²* TheCutie: A mysterious nature lover. Dawn appears to be good-hearted and very helpful, although she comes across as creepy to the others. ²* CuteWitch: Zoey suspects that Dawn might be a wizard in "Backstabbers Ahoy". It's also worth noting that she's the only contestant in the series with supernatural powers. Fandom also doesn't rule out the possibility she could be a vampire (pale skin, pointed ears, even hanging upside down in one ep).²* DeathGlare: A surprisingly effective one. BewareTheNiceOnes, [[http://i40.tinypic.com/15wl8nk.png indeed]].²* TheEmpath: She can read other people's (and animals') auras and figure out their inner feelings or even backstories based on that. Normally, the other contestants are understandably creeped out by it; however it comes in handy on occasion, such as reuniting a giant fire-breathing mutant beetle and her baby to stop her from terrorizing the Toxic Rats.²* {{Expy}}: Of [[Franchise/HarryPotter Luna Lovegood]]. She also plays the role of some of [[Series/{{Survivor}} Russell Hantz]]'s victims.²* FunSize: The shortest female among the second generation cast and the second shortest overall.²* {{Frameup}}: She falls victim to one, courtesy of Scott.²* FriendToAllLivingThings: She spends most of her free time interacting with various creatures. Even the mutant animals seem to like her.²* GranolaGirl: She's in tune with nature.²* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: She is soft spoken and very rarely shows ill will towards anyone.²* HugeGuyTinyGirl: She is the Tiny Girl to B's Huge Guy.²* KillTheCutie: She gets eliminated by Scott's deception.²* LotusPosition: She's often seen sitting in that position.²* MagicSkirt: She hangs upside-down in episode two, yet her skirt stays in place. In "Finders Creepers", she's caught by the giant spider [[spoiler:(Izzy in a costume)]] and hanging sideways from the web, yet her skirt stays in place, as well as her hair.²* NiceGirl: She may be a little off her rocker, but she definitely is friendly, kind and considerate.²* OccultBlueEyes: [[GrayEyes Grayish-blue]] actually, given her spiritual nature.²* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Dawn is normally a soft spoken girl who doesn't show ill will towards anyone, but in "Backstabbers Ahoy", she gives Scott a DeathGlare for sabotaging their team.²* PinkMeansFeminine: Her swimwear and sleepwear.²* PointyEars: As part of her design she has pointy elvish ears, adding to her already mystical like nature.²* ProperTightsWithASkirt: She wears purple tights with a black skirt.²* PowerFloats: Levitates to the finish line in the first episode of ''Revenge of the Island'', which causes Mike to freak out.²* PsychicPowers: Possesses AuraVision, and appears to be capable of predicting the future by reading tea-leaves.²* SecretKeeper: It's heavily implied that she was the first contestant to know about Mike's MPD. As she told Zoey that the "Mike parts" of Mike's aura really likes her but when Zoey asks what she means by this, she disappears feeling it's best for Mike to tell her that. ²* SheKnowsTooMuch: She found out Scott's intentions to lose a little too soon for his liking. [[spoiler:He frames her for taking everyone's stuff, and she ends up getting the boot from the contest.]]²* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Of the Toxic Rats after Dakota's elimination.²* StealthHiBye: She has a habit of appearing and disappearing without warning to her teammates. Needless to say, it freaks them out a bit.²* StoryBreakerPower: Probably the real-life reason for her [[DeusExitMachina relatively early elimination]]. With her ability to communicate with animals and the fact that [[StealthExpert she can be really stealthy when she wants to be]], she has an unfair advantage over other contestants and a lot of the challenges would become really easy for her. The writers probably realized this early on and decided to give her the boot because of it.²* SpeaksFluentAnimal: She can understand certain species, such as rats and beetles.²* TeensAreShort: She's the shortest girl among the second generation cast.²* TokenSuper: Dawn serves as this to the Toxic Rats, being the only character on the show to possess powers. Dawn appears to have PsychicPowers, giving her the ability to [[AuraVision read auras]], [[SpeaksFluentAnimal understand animals]], and being a VoiceForTheVoiceless for [[SilentBob B]]. This has helped her team out on several occasions.²* VoiceForTheVoiceless: Since B doesn't speak, she acts as his voice when he is communicating his plans to the Toxic Rats.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Lightning, The Athletic Overachiever]]²[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/amiatttw10.png]]²²->''"Lightning never gives up and never surrenders! Sha-Lightning!"''²²-->''Voiced by:'' Tyrone Savage²²-->''Teams:'' Toxic Rats, Villainous Vultures²²----²²* TheAce: Although he is without a doubt DumbMuscle, when it comes to anything physical, Lightning is perhaps the best.²* ArrogantKungFuGuy: He has moments of this.²* BadassBoast: Too many to list.²* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:In his ending of "Brain vs Brawn: The Final Showdown". Granted, the finale gave us a good few reasons to give him sympathy, too...and all of them are bad, and worst of all, he keeps the prize money to himself. Jo was most displeased.]]²* BerserkButton: You do '''not''' tell Lightning that winning isn't everything. [[spoiler: [[WellDoneSonGuy It's implied to be the only thing that gets his father's affection and attention]].]]²* BigBad: In ''Revenge of the Island'' after Scott's eliminated and he TookALevelInJerkass.²* BlackDudeDiesFirst: DoubleSubversion, he was the second camper overall to get eliminated in ''All-Stars''; however, he was the first one to go on the Villainous Vultures.²* BigWhat: When he gets eliminated in "All-Stars."²* BookDumb: According to Chris one of the two reasons why he's on the Chopping Block in "Evil Dread" (along with Jo, albeit for different reasons other than him) is because of his crummy math skills. He also thinks the Eiffel Tower is in Germany.²* BrainsAndBrawn: Serves as the brawn to contrast [[TheSmartGuy Cameron]]'s brains.²* TheBrute: For the Villainous Vultures.²* CatchPhrase: "SHA-''Insert word relevant to situation'', "Lightning strikes!" and "You're about to get struck by Lightning!"²* {{Determinator}}: "Lightning never quits!" Still tries to win the challenge for his team in "Ice, Ice Baby" even after they already lost.²* TheDitz: Lightning is a good contender for stupidest character period.²** He has trouble grasping what gender certain contestants are, mistaking Cameron for a girl and Jo for a boy. He also appears unable to count to ten.²** In "Eat, Puke and Be Wary", he thinks steak comes from ''trees'' and tries to get some [[VideoGame/{{Minecraft}} by punching one]].²** In "The Enchanted Franken Forest" despite acquiring all three pieces of a map, he is unable to put the map together correctly, leaving him so lost he ends up running off a cliff.²** But his shining moment was in "Evil Dread", where he proclaims he can dig wherever he wants and then proceeds to dig ''in the lake''. No surprise that his stupidity gets him kicked off by the rest of his team that night, though even getting eliminated doesn't put an end to his idiocy: when he sees the Eiffel Tower, he thinks he's in Germany and misinterprets a mime's (who he believes to be a German clown) attempts to warn him of an incoming boat for a demonstration on how to swim. Unsurprisingly, he gets struck by a gondola with [[CallBack Blaineley and Bruno in it]].²* TheDogBitesBack: Gets revenge on Jo for voting him off by taunting her with a pre-recorded message in "Saving Private Leachball".²* DoubleKnockout: [[spoiler: In the American version of the final episode, Cameron's final attack hits Lightning, but drains his power suit of its last bits of power and he falls over. A severely dazed and discolored haired Lightning falls over on top of Cam a moment later, earning him the 3 count pin and the victory, More or less the same thing happens in Cameron's ending, except that the order of who falls on who is reversed.]].²* DragonAscendant: In ''Revenge of the Island'' after Scott's been eliminated he becomes the BigBad.²* DumbJock: While his athletic ability is outstanding, it's balanced out by his lack of any intellectual skill.²* EmbarrassingFirstName: Considering his first name is [[WesternAnimation/RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer Rudolph]], it's kind of understandable he calls himself Lightning. ²* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Was highly upset when he found out his dad bet his gold rings on him and was even more upset when he lost in Cameron's ending.²* FaceHeelTurn: Lightning wasn't exactly a nice guy, but before Scott's elimination he was a decent, if competitive-minded, person who performed good deeds like saving Cameron from drowning, helping Cameron realize that Jo was planning to backstab him, and staying loyal to his alliance before getting betrayed. But once Cameron beat him in an immunity challenge (albeit by accident) he [[TookALevelInJerkass took several levels in jerkass]] and became the new BigBad of the season.²* {{Flanderization}}: Like most characters in ''All-Stars'', Lightning's intelligence [[TookALevelInDumbass took a hit]], but since he was [[TheDitz already an idiot]] to begin with, in his case it was merely exaggerating existing characteristics.²* FlatCharacter: Prior to "Eat, Puke, And Be Wary", he had little to no characterization outside being a DumbJock. He became this once more when ''All-Stars'' began.²* {{Foil}}: To Tyler, especially if one takes Tyler's online bio into account. Both are [[{{Determinator}} determined]] athletes who are very confident in their abilities, and tend to be TheDitz (although Lightning more so than Tyler). Additionally, it’s implied both also [[LikeFatherLikeSon get their sports-driven natures from their fathers]] (as Tyler's bio reveals his father is a sportscaster while Lightning’s father owns five championship rings). But unlike Tyler who often [[SmallNameBigEgo overestimates what he’s capable of]], Lightning backs up his claims and excels in anything physical. While Tyler is a LovableJock who’s unfailingly loyal to those he cares about, Lightning is something of a JerkJock who often prioritizes winning over others. While Tyler has his fair share of misfortune and brushes aside losing quite easily, Lightning is a SoreLoser to the point where it makes him undergo a FaceHeelTurn. And finally, it is implied Tyler has a good relationship with his father, seeing as how he gets all his sports gear from him, while Lightning has a strained relationship with his father, who ignores him unless he succeeds in every competition he participates in.²* HarmlessElectrocution: During his match with Cameron, Lightning gets struck by ''actual'' lightning, though it leaves no lasting damage aside from [[LockedIntoStrangeness bleaching his hair]]. [[spoiler:It ''does'' knock him out though, which results in either Cameron or himself winning the million.]]²* HumanPopsicle: Temporarily becomes one in "Ice Ice Baby".²* IncrediblyLamePun: "If [Brick] wakes me up one more time like that, he's gonna get struck by Lightning!"²* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Heavily implied to be the origin of Lightning's current ego, having grown up in the shadow of his champion father.²* IWasBeatenByAGirl: Jo tries to invoke this when she beats him in "Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!", but the taunt only confuses him, as he believes Jo is male.²* {{Jerkass}}: Starting in episode 12, towards Cameron. ²* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: In episode 12, when Zoey falls in a radioactive pit he runs over... to snatch the map away from her, so he could win the challenge. ²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He fit this prior to [[TookALevelInJerkass taking a level in jerkass]] in the latter half of the season, with Lightning revealing some surprisingly good qualities. In the first episode he saved Cameron from drowning, in the seventh episode when Jo (who he still thought was a guy) said she never kissed a guy, he was at first confused but then understanding, saying he "didn't judge." He also helped Cameron stand up to Jo in the 10th episode and the two of them ended up eliminating her. Among other things he seemed to get along with his teammates when they were shown to be competent. [[spoiler:Even in the finale, when everything and more is on the line, he takes the time to attack the giant mutant alligator that briefly trapped Cameron in his mouth, citing TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou while he saves him.]]²* JerkJock: He was more of a buffoon than a jerk early on, but he plays it straight towards the end of ''Revenge''.²* LargeHam: He is a major show off.²* LameComeback: His attempts to insult Cameron in the finale. Only the last one seems to work.²-->'''Lightning''': You wanted an intellectual challenge? When I finish with you, your whole life's gonna be an intellectual challenge!²* LockedIntoStrangeness: His hair seems to have been permanently bleached white after being electrocuted during his match with Cameron.²* MadLibsCatchphrase: "SHA-[insert word, sound effect or Lightning's name here]!"²* ManlyTears: [[spoiler:After he loses to Cameron in Cameron's ending. Averted in Lightning's ending where he wins.]]²* MrViceGuy: Lightning isn't exactly a bad guy, but his [[{{Pride}} overwhelming ego]] and competitive streak can cause him to be ruthless and foolhardy.²* {{Narcissist}}: About 75% of his dialogue is self-appraisal.²* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: He threatens to perform one of these when Cameron wins the "Eat, Puke, and Be Wary" challenge by riding on his back.²* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: [[http://www.freshtvinc.com/blog/total-drama-character-profiles-lightning/ According to this]]. WordOfGod states his real name is Rudolph "Lightning" Jackson.²* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Acts like this to Cameron in the finale, fighting off the mutant alligator that's attacking Cameron, due to wanting to save Cameron for himself.²* RealMenEatMeat: Even if it's raw!²* TheRival: To Jo, especially after Brick is eliminated. Jo's inability to keep the hatchet buried long enough to make the merge like she'd suggested is what gets them ''both'' out extremely early.²* RunningGag:²** Confusing Jo for a boy. [[spoiler:He finds out that Jo is a girl by the time she is eliminated.]]²** Some of his athletic feats are so outrageous they might qualify.²* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: For a manly man, he has a rather high pitched scream.²* ShoutOut:²** Lightning is wearing a jersey similar to the [[UsefulNotes/NationalFootballLeague San Diego Chargers]] or the [[UsefulNotes/CanadianFootballLeague Winnipeg Blue Bombers]].²** His online profile implies he's based of Smash Williams and Cuba Gooding Jr.²* SmallNameBigEgo: A subversion. He can ''definitely'' back up his boastfulness.²* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: From possible winner of his debut season to booted as early as the second episode of ''All Stars'', he may embody this better than any contestant in the series.²* TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat: He had left a pre-recorded confessional to taunt Jo about eliminating him, knowing full well her ego would become her own on doing.²* TemporarilyAVillain: He couldn't really be classified as especially heroic or villainous for most of the season, but TookALevelInJerkass in the last couple episodes of ''Revenge of the Island''. He's a Villainous Vulture in ''All Stars'', but otherwise pretty much his old self.²* ThirdPersonPerson: He rarely uses first person pronouns.²* TookALevelInDumbass: As impossible as it sounds, he somehow manages to achieve even this. As he is shown to be excessively stupid in "Evil Dread" (even for him). He even justifies as to why this is the case:²--> '''Lightning''': Sometimes when my stomach is empty, my mind ain't full. Stupid Boney Island fish!²* TookALevelInJerkass: For most of the season, he is just a DumbJock. However, when Cameron took immunity instead of him in episode 11, he's rather bitter (even though it was his own fault for showing off before then). While his personality doesn't really change, he's notably more antagonistic towards Cameron and Zoey, and effectively replaces Scott as the villain near the end of the season. He's mostly back to his prior levels of antagonism during his run on ''All Stars''.²* UnskilledButStrong: He is very strong and athletically gifted regarding almost anything physical, but has little in the way of common sense or intelligence.²* WellDoneSonGuy: The reason why he is so over-competitive is because he wants to please his father, which is understandable considering that his dad has 4 championship rings.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Sam, The Nice-Guy Gamer]]²[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sam_vide_ogame.png]]²²->''"This is the longest I've ever been without playing video games. [[GoingColdTurkey My fingers feel empty]]."''²²-->''Voiced by:'' Brian Froud (''Revenge of the Island'' and ''All-Stars'')²²-->''Teams:'' Toxic Rats, Heroic Hamsters²²----²²* ADeathInTheLimelight: Both episodes where he shows his CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass traits ("Runaway Model" and "Food Fright") end with his departure.²* {{Adorkable}}: Between his love for video games, self-deprecation, and initially-ineffectual attempts to win Dakota over, he's got this down pat.²* AnimalsHateHim: He gets attacked by at least one in all 4 episodes of ''All-Stars''.²* ButtMonkey: Big time in ''All-Stars''.²* CheatersNeverProsper: In ''All Stars'' he gets caught for smuggling pancakes after he turns over his pockets in the campfire ceremony of "Food Fright" (during the challenge he stuffed them in his pockets out of fear of going to Boney Island for a second time and starving), thus losing the challenge for his team on a technicality, and was voted off.²* DeathByIrony: By "Runaway Model", all of Sam's handhelds have been confiscated, and he starts hallucinating everything in "gaming" graphics, including the [[VideoGame/DonkeyKong scaffold he needs to climb to rescue Lindsay from Sasquatchinawkwa.]] He makes it past the rolling barrels and such, but then RealityEnsues with Sasquatchinawkwa tossing him off and he ultimately loses the challenge for the Rats and is voted off. Brick unintentionally [[LampshadeHanging lampshades this]] after Sam is thrown off the scaffold: ²--> [[GameOver "Game over."]]²* FreakyIsCool:²** His reaction to the mutant squirrel in the first episode.²** He thinks the gigantic mutated spider and him and his teammates trapped in a web is "so cool [his] head is spinning".²** How he sees [[spoiler:Dakota after her mutation.]]²** In ''All-Stars'', Sam states that the only reason he returned to Camp Wawanakwa was to find toxic waste so he can turn himself into a mutant, but much to his surprise and dismay, the island's been decontaminated.²* {{Gasshole}}: His farts are strong enough to knock Gwen out as seen in "The Treasure Island of Dr. [=McLean=]".²* GeekPhysique: In contrast to fellow geeks Harold and Cody, Sam represents the fat geek.²* GenreSavvy: His experience with video games can sometimes come in handy during challenges, such as when fighting the octopus he knew he had to "Jump, jump. punch". Though sometimes [[RealityEnsues he comes to realize, his video game experiences do not apply in the real world]], and it becomes more of a case of WrongGenreSavvy.²* GiveGeeksAChance: Seems to have successfully wooed Dakota by the time he's eliminated; she gives him her phone number, only for him to drop it when Chris catapults him off the island.²* GoingColdTurkey: He can slip into crippling withdrawals if he's kept from gaming.²* HopelessSuitor: Wanted to become Dakota's, but she was eliminated before he got the chance. However she came back as an intern, and they manage to hook up before he gets eliminated.²* HumanPopsicle: Temporarily becomes one in "Ice Ice Baby".²* IconicItem: His video game handheld.²* IKnowMortalKombat: He occasionally mimics the motions of video game characters to help him in challenges. He also has above average reflexes thanks to his gaming... most of the time anyway.²* TheLoad: He is especially this in ''All-Stars''. While he really does try to help his team, he ultimately ends up being a burden due to his GeekPhysique and his [[ButtMonkey incredibly bad luck]].²* NiceGuy: His label is the "Nice Guy Gamer" and he's one of the more cordial contestants.²* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: To Creator/SethRogen, voice and appearance-wise.²* OddFriendship: With Dakota. Eventually upgrades to Odd Relationship.²* ARareSentence: "[[ItMakesSenseInContext Well no one else was going to pee on me]]...heheh, that is a weird sentence!"²* SuperReflexes: He claims that 10 years of video gaming have given him these. He demonstrates by grabbing a piece of cheese from a MouseTrap without setting it off; however, he unwittingly sets off about a dozen additional traps when he stepped on the trap he'd just unbaited, claiming that his gaming withdrawal is throwing him off balance.²* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute:²** He shares a few traits with Cody, both being a certain species of techno geek plying for the affections of a girl, though Sam actually succeeds.²** He shares quite a few similarities with Owen as well: They're both fat, good at speed eating, extremely nice, and hooked up with girls far beyond their league. His interactions with [[ManipulativeBastard Scott]] also mirror Owen's relationship with Alejandro (nice fat guy believes him to be a friend, while villain secretly hates him and plots his downfall). By "Food Fright" he seems to be a full-out replacement for Owen, acting as the Heroic Hamsters' speed eater during the eating portion of the episode's challenge (although he's not nearly as good at it as Owen was).²* TinyGuyHugeGirl: [[spoiler:He ends up being about half Dakota's size after her transformation. He certainly doesn't mind though.]]²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Scott, The Devious]]²[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/epbw_21_1.png]]²²->''"Chris [=McLean=], your little island won't know what hit it!"''²²-->''Voiced by:'' James Wallis²²-->''Teams:'' Toxic Rats, Mutant Maggots, Villainous Vultures²²----²²* {{Adorkable}}: He has shades of this especially in ''All-Stars'' when he gets to sleep on real pillows. This goes [[UpToEleven Up To Eleven]] when he's trying to be Courtney's boyfriend.²* AmazonChaser: In ''All Stars'' he gets involved with [[SpicyLatina Courtney]] due to her bossy, aggressive nature. ²* AnimalsHateHim: He gets attacked by both a woolly beaver and his team's mascot in the second episode. Not to mention his ongoing feud with Fang.²* ArchEnemy: ²** Fang.²** To the ''Revenge of the Island'' Trio (Cameron, Mike, and Zoey). All three became aware of Scott's true nature and tried hard to eliminate him throughout the season. Likewise Scott manipulates or eliminates each of them, once seeing them as threats, specifically Cameron, who provided more resistance to him than anyone else. Cameron made three separate alliances against Scott, and finally succeeded in "Eat, Puke, and Be Wary". In addition, Cameron is the only one Scott is still mean to in ''All-Stars'', following his [[TookALevelInKindness increased niceness]].²* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Though he doesn't have the skills to back it up.²* AssholeVictim: Scott frequently falls victim to being pursued and mauled by mutant shark Fang but Scott is not really a saint, having done things that make him seem to deserve being Fang’s chew toy. It’s most blatant in his elimination in “Revenge” when Fang served as Scott’s comeuppance for all the bad stuff he did in the season.²* BadassBeard: Only in his [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original]] [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110831234306/totaldramaisland/images/7/7f/TotalDramaReloadedTDIBlogCharacters.png design.]]²* BalloonBelly: In "Food Fright", to the point where he's so heavy he stops the spinning log from working and couldn't be kicked by the boot, while it had no problem with Alejandro and Sam's combined weight (especially considering both of them each ate half their pancake stacks).²* BigBad: Of ''Revenge of the Island'', [[DiscOneFinalBoss until "Eat Puke and be Wary"]].²* BigBadFriend: To Zoey. He managed to win over her trust for several episodes, and very nearly turned her against her own crush. She finally learns the truth about him after he gets Mike eliminated.²* BizarreTasteInFood: ²** Having grown up on a farm, Scott apparently has no problem eating Chef's disgusting gruel, and likes it! The accompanying indigestion is a pleasant kind of nostalgia.²** He has no problem eating ''green'' toast, calling it "Penicillin Puree".²** In "Sundae Muddy Sundae", he can't put chocolate syrup on his sundae, so he puts dirt on it instead. And he enjoys it.²* {{Blackmail}}: Once he discovers Mike's secret, he uses it to make him his lackey under threat of telling Zoey.²* BookDumb: He doesn't show much intelligence, aside from his skills in manipulation.²* BreakTheHaughty: Like every antagonist of seasons past, he gets broken in an ''epic'' fashion.²* TheBrute: He takes up this role for the Villainous Vultures in ''All-Stars'', once both the jocks are eliminated.²* ButtMonkey: Similar to Sam, he's especially this in ''All-Stars''.²* CardCarryingVillain: The "Devious", before later being changed to "The Troublemaker".²* CharacterizationMarchesOn: The cunning, [[{{Schemer}} scheming]], [[TeamKiller challenge throwing]] Scott vanishes after "Evil Dread", in favor of an [[TookALevelInDumbass moronic]], [[{{Adorkable}} socially clueless]] FarmBoy who's only purpose was to be a [[IronButtMonkey pain magnet]].²* CheatersNeverProsper: Initially averted, then played straight in "Eat, Puke, and Be Wary", when he switches his dish with Cameron's when his back was turn. This later gets played straight when he [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking gets shot by Chef's painful spaghetti gun, mauled by Fang, and eventually voted off by Cameron and Zoey]].²* ChekhovsSkill: Scott is shown whittling a piece of wood in some of his confessionals. In "Backstabbers, Ahoy!" it's revealed that he has used this skill to create fake immunity idols.²* TheChessmaster: Unlike most antagonists at that point in the game had the basic strategy of winning challenges and manipulating their team to the merge before tearing them apart. Scott had the strategy of actually throwing the challenges to make his team, and him by extension look like less of a threat. While a risky strategy, Scott manages to pull it off with his charisma and manipulation, he also carved up fake immunity idols to deceive contestants who were also searching for it.²* TheChewToy: Figuratively ''and'' literally, especially so in ''All-Stars''. ²* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: In ''Revenge'', the only person whose side he's on is his own.²* ContrastingSequelAntagonist: Scott distances himself from the {{Big Bad}}s of the previous seasons with his strategy of [[TeamKiller throwing challenges]] to [[UnfriendlyFire vote off his team mates]]. He's also the only BigBad to date who never formed any sort of alliance in the season where he was the main villain.²* CrocodileTears: See WoundedGazelleGambit below.²* DeepSouth: Despite being Canadian, many of Scott's mannerisms fit the trope.²* DevilInPlainSight: Played straight early on in ''Revenge''; however, the other campers eventually realize that he is up to no good.²* {{Determinator}}: "Whatever doesn't horribly maim and devour you only makes you stronger."²* DiscOneFinalBoss: Despite being season four's main antagonist, he gets eliminated in "In Eat Puke and Be Wary" and the final antagonist of the season ends up being JerkJock Lightning instead.²* DidntThinkThisThrough: Scott attempts to hogtie Fang during a challenge, his logic being that sharks are like pigs. Unfortunately for him, the two are nothing alike.²* EvenEvilHasStandards: Sure wasn't happy when Sam and Dakota's electronics were taken away by Chris because it led both of them to fall under withdrawal.²* EvilerThanThou: Certainly more than Jo. While Jo might be a selfish hardass who bullies and roughhouses her teammates (Brick and Cameron in particular) she at least would never resort to deliberately screwing over her own team, and overall he's more malicious in his antagonism and [[EvilFeelsGood seems to actively enjoying being evil.]]²* EvilFeelsGood: He takes pride in being a villain and at times does it ForTheEvulz.²* EvilIsHammy: Mainly in ''All-Stars'' where he tries to remind everyone he's a villain ([[VillainDecay even though he's clearly not]]).²* EvilLaugh: He seems to be rather fond of these.²* EvilRedhead: Well orange head, either way he's a manipulative prankster who knows how to play the competition like a violin.²* {{Expy}}: Of Russell Hantz from Series/{{Survivor}}, due to his willingness to [[TeamKiller screw over his own team]] (especially those he feels have crossed him or he just plain dislikes), how he hunts for and easily finds the hidden immunity idol, and both were on the Villains Team in their second season. Much like Russell, he is also beaten by his own arrogance, and denied the finale ''twice''.²* ExtremeDoormat: To Courtney. [[spoiler: Even after vowing to never forgive her, he states that he would if she wants him to.]]²* FarmBoy: He grew up on the farm, which he attributes to his rough personality.²* FauxAffablyEvil: Not quite to the skill level that Alejandro has mastered, but he was still able to sucker Dawn, Sam and Zoey into believing he was their friend, until he backstabbed them.²* FearIsTheAppropriateResponse: A very understandable reaction when facing Fang.²* {{Flanderization}}: Scott was always a little dumb, but his stupidity becomes much more profound in ''All-Stars'' as it becomes the only bit of his characterization from ''Revenge of the Island'' to stay intact.²* {{Foil}}: To Alejandro and Heather. Both his predecessor villains made numerous alliances throughout the game and played dirty to make sure their teams would win. Scott tries hard to make his team lose so he can vote off his competition, and never makes a single alliance in his debut season.²* {{Frameup}}: How he eliminates B and Dawn.²* FreudianExcuse: Implied by Dawn's aura reading.²-->'''Dawn''': You weren't held enough as a child.²* TheFriendNobodyLikes: A promotional trailer for ''All-Stars'' referred to him as "nobody's friend, Scott".²* GracefulLoser: ²** He takes his elimination in ''Revenge of the Island'' surprisingly well, even showing approval towards Zoey for "duping" him.²** He takes his elimination in ''All-Stars'' well enough too, even warning Zoey of Mike's treachery before leaving.²* HarmlessElectrocution: Electrocuted several times in "The Obsta-Kill Kourse". While it did seem painful, it didn't seem to do any permanent damage.²* HarmlessVillain: In ''All-Stars'' he still thinks of himself as a villain, but the fact of the matter is that by this stage, Cameron has succeeded in being more villainous than him.²* HateSink: Scott was one in ''Revenge Of The Island'' when he was the villain of that season because he did several loathsome acts. He threw several challenges and got B eliminated, framed Dawn for stealing then humiliated her with a fake idol and got her eliminated, and then selfishly took advantage of Mike’s multiple personality disorder to blackmail him into helping him win challenges and then threw him under the bus after winning the challenge by voting him off just because he could. These heinous acts were what caused a lot of the campers to spite him and not show any sympathy to him when they found out that he got mauled by Fang after getting eliminated. ²* HeartbreakAndIceCream: When he is sad, Scott eats ''dirt''.²* HiddenDepths: He has stated he has a soft spot for nature and enjoyed watching the doves released in the morning in ''All-Stars''.²* HoistByHisOwnPetard: His overconfidence in his ability to manipulate and sabotage others is what eventually leads to his downfall.²* HumiliationConga: In "Eat, Puke and Be Wary": he gets hit by Chef's spaghetti bazooka, falls into several of Zoey's traps, voted off, and takes the hurl of shame with his least favorite shark who mauls him, later after he's put in the trauma chair everyone laughs at him.²* IconicItem: The shark tooth that he took from Fang in the second episode. [[spoiler:Fang reclaims his tooth just before Scott takes the Hurl of Shame.]]²* IMeantToDoThat: His confessional response to the WrongGenreSavvy incident below (as it actually helped his strategy).²* ImNotHereToMakeFriends: [[TeamKiller More so]] than Heather [[UpToEleven and that's saying something]]. However, [[TookALevelInKindness he tries to make nice]] in ''All-Stars''.²* ImpossibleTask: His reaction to his flying machine selection in "Up, Up and Away in My Pitiful Balloon".²-->'''Scott''': A bird?! How am I supposed to build a ''bird?!''²* InLoveWithYourCarnage: The whole basis of how his relationship with Courtney formed.²-->'''Scott''': You're pretty when you're angry.²* InsaneTrollLogic: Does this in an attempt to sabotage his team in "A Mine is a Terrible Thing to Waste".²-->'''Scott''': "No we go right, because it's the "right" one. Get it?"²-->(''Cameron and Zoey glance at each other'')²* IronButtMonkey: His only purpose in ''All-Stars'' is to get injured in every manner physically possible, and it's always PlayedForLaughs.²* {{Jerkass}}: He often resorted to [[TeamKiller eliminating his own teammates]] to get ahead. He gets better in ''All-Stars'', where he acts [[TookALevelInKindness far less nasty]] and actually becomes a team player.²* JerkassHasAPoint: Scott points out to Zoey about how proficient Lightning was as a competitor. Zoey doesn't seem to care at first, until Lightning shows up right at that moment and displays his athletic prowess.²-->'''Zoey''': Scott made a point, I hate it when Scott makes a point.²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Becomes this in ''All-Stars''. While some of his {{Jerkass}} tendencies remain, he is generally much nicer to almost everyone.²* KickTheDog: ²** Refusing to help Cameron when he was drowning in "Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!".²** Getting Dawn's hopes up with a fake [=McLean=] idol after framing her before getting her voted off in "Backstabbers Ahoy".²** He was especially cruel to Mike in "Grand Chef Auto", with many of his actions being ForTheEvulz and not necessary to save himself from elimination. He blackmailes Mike into helping him, risking his own safety, preventing him from helping his friends, and very nearly [[RelationshipSabotage causing Zoey to breakup with Mike]].²* LaserGuidedKarma: Even before becoming ''All-Stars'' [[IronButtMonkey designated pain magnet]], he suffered from ''a lot'' of painful injures in ''Revenge of the Island''.²* ManipulativeBastard: He played the "Toxic Rats" like puppets, easily bending them to his will with his "who to eliminate" speech at the end of each episode.²* {{Metaphorgotten}}²-->'''Scott''': I'm like a little kid in a candy store full of suckers! ''(chuckles)'' And I'm gonna... uh, like, break 'em and stuff.²** Also when Mal tells him Alejandro tried to drove "a wedge" between him and Courtney.²-->'''Scott''': A wedge of what? Cheese?²-->(''Mal [[{{Facepalm}} facepalms]]'')²* TheMillstone: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] as part of his TeamKiller strategy.²* NotCheatingUnlessYouGetCaught: Scott attempts to cheat in "Evil Dread"... but is caught by Manitoba.²* OppositesAttract: Let's see; Courtney loves giving orders, and Scott loves taking orders. They really are perfect for each other, aren't they?²* PetTheDog: [[spoiler:Warning Zoey about Mike/Mal [[GracefulLoser after she eliminated him, no less]]. Especially considering they were fierce enemies in the previous season.]]²* RevealingHug: He flashes an evil smile to camera while he hugs Zoey.²* RunningGag: ²** Scott really shouldn't use the confessional so much, seeing how often he manages to hurt himself in it.²** In ''All Stars'', he constantly gets bitten on the butt by animals. He even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this in "The Obsta-Kill Course."²--->'''Scott''': Why is it always my butt!? ²* SatelliteCharacter: Becomes this in ''All-Stars'' as he has virtually no purpose or plot in the season outside of his [[spoiler:(ultimately failed)]] romance plot with Courtney, yet he manages to rank [[spoiler:3rd]] in spite of his irrelevance.²* {{Schemer}}: Chris even refers to him as such after he's eliminated: "Scheming Scott schemed his last scheme."²* ShellShockedVeteran: To Sharks, especially Fang.²* ShoutOut: [[spoiler: the machine (and his facial expression) that he gets stuck in during "Brain vs. Brawn: The Ultimate Showdown" is a shout out to the same state that Captain Pike was reduced to in Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries.]]²* ShovelStrike: Accidentally does this to Mike (as Manitoba Smith) in "Evil Dread" after triggering a Booby Trap and getting frightened by bees. [[spoiler:Little did he know that he also re-awakened Mal.]]²* SingleTear: [[spoiler:He is genuinely upset when everyone, aside from Cameron, laughs at his condition]] in "Brain vs. Brawn: The Ultimate Showdown".²* SixthRangerTraitor: After changing to the Mutant Maggots, where he once again resorts to [[TeamKiller Team Killing]].²* SmugSnake: In ''Revenge of the Island''. Less so in ''All-Stars''. ²* TheSociopath: Dawn outright calls him this, while Mike refers to him as psycho.²* SpotlightStealingSquad: In ''Revenge of the Island'', it's justified since he was the main villain of the season; however, in ''All-Stars'', he doesn't contribute much to the plot aside from his ultimately failed crush with Courtney, yet remains on the show until "The Bold and the Booty-ful". Overall, he has the second-most screen time out of the entire second-generation cast, having only two less episodes total than ''Zoey'' as of ''All Stars''.²* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute:²** Scott is a combination of both Heather and Alejandro. Like the former, he is rather unrefined in behavior, becomes a ButtMonkey as time passes, and receives a Hispanic love interest in a later season. Like the latter, he finds and uses the immunity idol, tries to be FauxAffablyEvil and receives his [[LaserGuidedKarma comeuppance]] in the form of a [[spoiler:HumiliationConga that injures him to the point that he has to be placed in a robot suit]]. He feigns friendship in order to get ahead; a strategy that has been used by both the aforementioned predecessors. Like them, Scott eventually becomes unanimously disliked by everybody. ²** Scott is also one to Duncan, as they're both devious troublemakers who like causing mischief and being evil for their own amusement, it also doesn't help that they both dated Courtney.²** In ''All-Stars'', Scott displaces Tyler as the series' IronButtMonkey.²* TeamKiller: Scott is one of the biggest examples in any show. His initial strategy is to deliberately sabotage his own team. He stops this in ''All-Stars'' for obvious reasons, although he considered doing so in "Evil Dread".²** In "Truth or Laser Shark", he slows down his team by petting the mutant rat instead of handing it off to B. It worked, but B wasn't eliminated. Instead, Dakota spent too much time putting on makeup and cost her team the challenge, so she got eliminated.²** In "Ice, Ice, Baby", he melts his own team's fort to frame B for sabotage and gets him eliminated.²** In "Backstabbers Ahoy!", he shoots Sam in the back, causing him to pass out and crash their team's boat. He then frames Dawn for stealing the campers' possessions and gets her eliminated.²** In "The Treasure Island of Dr. [=McLean=]", he gives Jo and Lightning a hint on where to go and sends his own team to dig in the wrong location.²* ThrowingTheFight: Part of his team killing strategy.²** However, this is subverted in "Finders Creepers" when Sam wins the challenge, despite being bound to Scott.²** Subverted again in "A Mine Is a Terrible Thing To Waste" [[spoiler:when he threw away the statue they are suppose to find, unaware that the statue landed in Anne Maria's hair which wins them the challenge once they leave the mine.]]²* TokenEvilTeammate: In ''Revenge of the Island'' while on both teams.²* TookALevelInDumbass: Scott goes from a cunning manipulator in ''Revenge of the Island'' to a simple minded FarmBoy who [[{{Metaphorgotten}} gets confused by metaphors]] in ''All-Stars''.²* TookALevelInKindness: In ''All-Stars'' he is a lot nicer to his teammates (and everyone else in general) than in ''Revenge of the Island''.²* UnfriendlyFire: Largely his central strategy in ''Revenge of the Island'' where he'd spend the first half of his season [[TeamKiller throwing challenges]] and picking off any teammates that served as potential threats.²* UnexplainedRecovery: As shown in ''All Stars''.²* UngratefulBastard: Anytime his team wins a challenge in ''Revenge of the Island'' due to his sabotage strategy.²* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: In the second episode of ''All-Stars'' he accidentally hits Mike with a shovel while swatting at a swarm of bees in a panic. This is what reawakens Mal for the first time.²* UpToEleven: His stupidity is much more played up in ''All-Stars'' than it was in ''Revenge of the Island''.²* VillainDecay: A {{Jerkass}} in ''Revenge'', but relegated to [[TheChewToy Chew Toy]] status in ''All-Stars''. Scott also no longer schemes against the other competitors, instead seems to be content with competing fair and square. Justified because his [[TeamKiller old strategy]] wouldn't be very practical to use twice.²* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: In "Heroes vs. Villains", the first episode of ''All Stars'', he says in the Confessional that his brush with death after being mauled by Fang in ''Revenge of The Island'' has scarred him and he has developed a phobia of sharks as a result.²* WoundedGazelleGambit: Successfully pulls one on Zoey in "Runaway Model". He feigns remorse for eliminating Dawn, stating that she could communicate with Sasquatchanakwa and save Lindsay.²* WouldHitAGirl: He throws a spray can at Zoey's head while she's climbing a totem pole in "Grand Chef Auto".²* WrongGenreSavvy: For winning the first challenge in "Ice Ice Baby", the Rats are allowed to choose which fort they will command for the second challenge. While most of the team immediately chooses the more impressive one, Scott convinces them that it's a trick and the other fort will look nicer on the inside. It doesn't.²* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: In "Grand Chef Auto", after blackmailing Mike about his condition, Scott promptly eliminates him after winning the episode's challenge.²* YouJustToldMe: He uses this method to trick Cameron into telling him about Mike's condition.²* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: None of the characters seem to care for him due to his wicked actions during ''Revenge of the Island''. He is also one of the few contestants to not have any friends or allies (though he does start a relationship with Courtney in ''All Stars''). Lampshaded in ''Brains vs Brawn: The Ultimate Showdown'' when Chris explains that they had to put Scott inside the trauma chair so he can survive after being mauled by Fang, he states that who cares because it's Scott, everyone starts laughing.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Staci, The Compulsive Liar]]²[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/staci_doesntnow_howtoswim.png]]²²->''"[[BadLiar Yeah, my Great-Great-Great Uncle James invented log cabins, before him people had to sleep in the trees, and they kept falling out all the time.
