Characters / Code: Total Drama Reality

Go To

In Code: Total Drama Reality, most of the characters tropes in Total Drama and Code Lyoko are still applied, so please refrain from putting the same character tropes here unless the existing trope is handled differently in the story.

This page is still a work-in-progress. Beware of unmarked spoilers.

    Lyoko Warriors 

Aelita Stones/Schaeffer

  • The Mentor: Acts as the new group's guide with her knowledge of XANA and Lyoko, and no one has any qualms of her being the leader.
  • Physical Goddess: By unlocking the Keys to Lyoko inside her, Aelita becomes so powerful that she exerts energy suprassing XANA's.


  • Cast from Hit Points: Her flying ability, stat restoration, and "Shadow Veil" all cost a good amount of life points.
  • Casting a Shadow: One of Gwen's powers is the shadow-based Elemental Power of hiding in an enemy's shadow.
  • Character Development: Reverts back to her more likable persona from previous seasons and seriously starts to question her relationship with Duncan (eventually breaking up with him) and come to better terms with Trent, Heather, and Courtney.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Each of her spells has a specifically-colored Battle Aura (red=fire, air=green, etc.).
  • Combo Platter Powers: Gwen can fly, use her scythe as a barrier, get her weapon back if she loses it, uses fire, earth, wind, and poison attacks, and can increase one of her stats, and hide in an enemy's shadow. However, several of these powers do carry a significant life point cost.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Gwen's hair becomes all-blue from the dormant virus inside her after XANA's Grand Theft Me attempt. It goes back to her usual streaked style after the virus is eliminated by Seraphim.



  • Living Statue: He can turn into a golem, in which he can use his full power.
  • Took a Level in Badass: While it applies to all of the other new Lyoko Warriors, it's easier to see the difference from the Prone to Tears person he was on the show to this version, where he actually has some self-confidence.


  • Cool Sword: Her board swords.
  • Dual Wielding: Bridgette wields both of her surfboard halves at once.
  • The Heart: Bridgette is the nicest member of the team, along with Aelita, and is usually the one to try to defuse tension.
  • Jack-of-All-Trades: She's the only Lyoko character to have her own mode of transportation from the start and she's good at swordplay, agility (though Heather is better), and her water attacks are unique to herself (though Gwen and Trent have a more diverse Elemental Magic range).
  • Making a Splash: Bridgette has a variety of water-based Elemental Powers in her Lyoko form, befitting her fondness for water sports.
  • Power Glows: The wave tattoos on her arms glow when she activates her energy waves.
  • Power Tattoo: Bridgette has wave tattoos on her arms in accordance with her water-based powers.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: If Geoff should ever get hurt, any monster responsible won't live to regret it.



  • Beware the Nice Ones: If you thought him punching out Duncan at Greece was epic, wait until you see him win against a general.
  • Jumped at the Call: Joined at the "XANA's Nightmares" arc, after he saw Gwen get stabbed by XANA's polymorphic clone.


  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Really starts to warm up to her old enemy, Gwen, although Heather would never admit it.


  • "Well Done, Daughter!" Girl: Part of what drove Courtney to make Duncan meet her standards was so that her parents would come to approve of him.



  • Character Development: Trent becomes more mentally stable than in his later seasons, more or less returning to his original canonical characterization.


  • The Smart Guy: Noah showcases his technological intelligence in a variety of situations.
  • Weak, but Skilled: He's no stronger than he was in the original series, but good use of possession and Mega Manning, as well as his invaluable intelligence, makes him a good addition to the team.




  • Leeroy Jenkins: Her usual response to danger is "charge in and hit it til it's dead".



  • Bishōnen Line: XANA has transcended from being a creepy computer symbol to using a human avatar resembling an older, Gender Flipped version of Aelita.
  • The Chessmaster: Everything that happens goes according to his plan.
  • The Corruption: To Gwen and Duncan. He was on the receiving end years before, making him what he is during the story's events.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas:
    • Calling it "love" is a bit of a stretch, but he really was fond of Antea enough to actively seek out and inflict a Fate Worse than Death upon her killer.
    • The last thing he does, before his death, is seek out the pieces of Antea's digital avatar and piece it back together, effectively restoring her to life.
  • Evil Brit: His avatar has a slight British accent.
  • Fallen Hero: His original programming was to destroy a greater threat and save the human race. He even saved Aelita from wolves when she was a child. Then he got hit with a virus that corrupted him into what he currently is.
  • Freudian Excuse: His father always referred to him as an "it" and tried to kill XANA, who was child-aged at the time and also trying to fight off a virus. The attempted murder left him weak enough that he merged with it. Between The Corruption, his hate over what his father tried, and his dwindling faith in humanity, that was enough for him to go evil.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Does this to Dr. Lyon. Trapping someone on a virtual island forever? Horrible. Doing that to the same guy who kidnapped and tortured his mother? Karma.
  • Mama's Boy: Unlike Waldo, Antea always had high hopes that XANA would evolve, treated him like a son, and encouraged him to branch out his humanity. To this day she's the only human he doesn't hate, and the last thing he does before dying is bring her back to life.
  • Noble Demon: He doesn't lie (although as Noah points out, it's more like he can't because of how he was programmed), and acts honorably a few times; should he and the Lyoko Warriors pull an Enemy Mine on someone, XANA will usually just depart peacefully as a "reward".
  • Pet the Dog: His dying act is to bring back Antea.



  • Knife Nut: Carries a lot of knives with him, though like Ulrich, he often uses a katana.





  • Affably Evil: He seems more interested in belittling his enemies than in battling them.





  • Meaningful Name: As with Seraphim, Nephilim's name carries Judeo-Christian subtext, referring to the legendary offspring of humans and angels.


Chris McLean

  • Can't Get Away with Nuthin': After Chris' sketchy actions in previous Total Drama seasons, the studio is keeping a close watch on his behavior and setting clear limits on how dangerous challenges can be.
  • He's Back: After Kurt and Carlos are drafted back into government work, he becomes the host again.


  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Very Hot-Blooded, once thought of giving his car a funeral, not to mention all the Noodle Incidents... but along with Kurt, he's the campers' best hope of a relatively safe season.
  • Got the Call on Speed Dial: For every return to the past, Aelita can use specters from the supercomputer to give Carlos and other former allies their memories back when he needs their help. Carlos is happy to get some of the action whenever Aelita may have need of him.
  • Henpecked Husband: His wife Melissa is probably the only person who can keep him under control.



All The Rest:

  • Hidden Depths: Lindsay is revealed to be pretty good at robot making. Given her canonical skill at making bicycles, perhaps this should not be so surprising.
  • Lethal Chef: As if the blowfish incident back in the first Total Drama wasn't bad enough, Lindsay allegedly has an arson code named after her in her hometown, due to her incompetence with an oven.
  • The Sixth Ranger: Up until about chapter 30, the Lyoko group had a pretty conventional Five-Man Band structure. Then came seven more of these guys.
  • Spared by the Adaptation:
    • For once, Ezekiel is not voted off first. Doesn't last long though.
    • Eva also sticks around a lot longer than she did in any of the canon seasons and even becomes one of the Warriors.


How well does it match the trope?
