"I really should've written down what I wanted to say, but the only pen I could find was all chewed up, and not by me. Kind of grossed out just thinking about it. As a competitor I'd be vicious, all about the money. Not there to make friends, know what I mean? Keep people at arms length, grab that cash! I'm gonna play this cold."

Teams: Waneyihtam Maskwak (Confused Bears)

  • Ambiguous Disorder:
    • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder with repetitive behaviors and intense desire to be clean
    • Borderline Personality Disorder: Intense fears of abandonment from Sky, emotionally unstable, and extremely impulsive
  • Ambiguously Brown: Much like Noah, his skin is tan but it's not really clear what his ethnicity is.
  • Back for the Finale: He was randomly chosen as Sky's helper.
  • Bald of Evil: His hair is burned off between the first and second legs of the final challenge; however, he doesn't become villainous until the third leg.
  • Batman Gambit: In "A Blast from the Past", he convinces Shawn, who believes that the island is infested with zombies, that Team Kinosewak are zombified, motivating Shawn to participate. Unfortunately, Shawn hits Jasmine hard in the head, which puts a major kink in their relationship.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Becomes bitter and resentful upon discovering that Sky has a boyfriend.
  • The Complainer Is Always Wrong: Nobody other than Sky listens to him when he complains about the flaws in his teammates' plans.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He has shown competence to his team's surprise (and his own) on a fair few occasions.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Before he joining the show, he was possessed by a demon with dark powers. Afterwards, during one adventure, he gained dark powers from two kanatas to defeat one of the Animentals, the Bat of Darkness. he lampshades this trope in the cosplay episode
  • Deadpan Snarker: As his team's Straight Man, he snarks occasionally.
    Dave: (after he pulls his parachute's ripcord, only to find feathers in his pack) Yup. Feathers. I get it. Funny.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: Especially after finding out that the "girl" already has a boyfriend, upon which his Sanity Slippage gets even worse than it already was.
  • Demonic Possession: Prior to Erin's Total Magical Adventure, Dave was possessed by a monster, Khordon, who feeds off his negative feelings for Sky. At first Dave was aware and let the former help the latter get back at him that is until Khordon betrayed Dave by "swallowing his soul" and gain control to take over and make Halloween every night forever.
  • Face–Heel Turn: After finding out that Sky is already in a relationship, he does everything in his power to keep her from winning the prize money.
  • Fallen Hero: He wasn't exactly nice to begin with, but he becomes significantly more villainous after his Sanity Slippage in the finale.
  • Final Boss: In the season finale, after he realizes that Sky already has a boyfriend, making him the final villain of the second part of season 5.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Mainly with Beardo and Leonard.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After the events of Erin, Tails, and Sky and the Goblin King, Dave went to get help, return to the good side and tries to prove he's not a bad guy. He still has his old traits though.
  • Hypochondria: Has self-diagnosed himself with several allergies, none of which have been proven. Lampshaded by Chris after Dave gets hit with a balloon filled with itching powder.
    Dave: (in the confessional, as he's scratching himself) Itching powder?! Really?! I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to this!
    Chris: (over the intercom) Everyone is allergic to it! It's itching powder!
    • Though in Mo' Monkeys Mo' Problems his allergy to flowers is implied to be legitimate
  • I'm Not Here to Make Friends: He states this in his audition video, but once he's on the island he quickly abandons this policy in favor of pursuing a relationship with Sky.
  • Jerkass: Due to him believing that he is the Only Sane Man on his team, he can come off as this at times.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's insensitive, short-tempered, and whiny but was shown to be a fairly nice guy as long as no one upsets him (helping Ella after she got electrocuted, trying to offer Shawn relationship advice)
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: While he had undergone Sanity Slippage starting from "Hurl And Go Seek", he jumps off the deep end in the finale.
  • Just Friends:
    • Sky attempts to view her relationship with him as this due to not wanting to date someone she'd eventually have to compete against and also because she's already in a relationship with someone else. Unfortunately, Dave doesn't take this too well.
    • Dave sees his relationship with Ella as this. While Ella is initially saddened by this revelation, she gets over it and doesn't hold it against Dave.
  • The Lancer: Whether Shawn or Sky is The Leader in a particular episode, Dave contrasts their competence and tolerance of their team's quirks with his own tendencies (see The Load) and frequent complaints about everything.
  • The Load: While not as bad as previous examples, he is definitely the weakest member on his team and is often hindered by his mysophobia.
  • Love Is a Weakness: Both Sugar and Sky know this and take full advantage.
  • Love Makes You Dumb: His common sense takes a severe blow after he falls for Sky, resulting in him trying various misguided stunts (such as trying to tame a bear and pretending to be a jerk) in order to impress her. Needless to say, it doesn't work.
  • Love Makes You Evil: His love for Sky led to his heart to get broken, which ultimately caused his Sanity Slippage and seeking vengeance on Sky.
  • Meaningless Villain Victory: In Shawn's ending, Sky has failed to get any prize money, exactly as he'd solely dedicated himself towards when he had his Face–Heel Turn. He doesn't seem to be remotely pleased about this, though, more upset about missing out on half of the prize.
  • No Respect Guy: Early in the season when he was actually the Only Sane Man who was Surrounded by Idiots, though this later subsides when his unlikable traits accumulate and he becomes a hindrance to the team himself.
  • Oblivious to Love: He was unaware that Ella had developed a crush on him.
  • Only Sane Man: Aside from Sky, he sees himself as the only sane member of his team. To an extent, this is a fairly reasonable assumption, considering his team consists of a guy who makes silly noises, a guy who thinks he's a wizard, a girl who dresses like a princess and sings at inopportune moments, a ditzy pageant queen, a paranoid zombie-phobic extremist, and later on a purple-haired midget who thinks he's a supervillain and laughs like a maniac all the time. It's still ambiguous if he really counts as sane when all's said and done, though.
  • Opposites Attract: With Sky.
  • Powers via Possession: While being possessed, he gain the powers and abilities of an Amorak, a fairy, and the Goblin Scepter to gain control, control or turn everyone into monsters, and make Halloween every night forever.
  • Sanity Slippage: Undergoes some after Sky rejects him at the merge. Luckily, he knows this and votes himself off before it can get any worse. Unfortunately for him, it worsens when he realizes that Sky already has a boyfriend.
  • Ship Tease: With Sky.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: See Only Sane Man.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute:
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: Believes this will be the case when Sky is switched to the opposing team in episode 7. Unfortunately, he didn't take into account how serious Sky and her teammates were about the competition.
  • Terrified of Germs: His contestant bio states that he has mysophobia and he is seen rubbing his hands with disinfectant in his audition video. He gets nervous whenever a challenge involves getting dirty, and freaks out when he's covered in pig grease in "I Love You, Greased Pig!". In "This is the Pits!" he is seen in the fetal position after his team escape the underground tunnels by climbing out through the outhouse confessional, covered in waste water.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: See Love Makes You Dumb.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: His frustration at his teammates causes him to take a level or two during the first few episodes. Then The Reveal of Sky having a boyfriend causes him to take several more.
  • Woman Scorned: Gender-Inverted Trope. He didn't even want the money, but he was intent on making sure Sky didn't get it. If he managed to win half by stopping Shawn and Sky, he was planning on burning his half in front of her out of spite.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: While his behavior in the finale certainly makes him qualify as a villain, it's difficult not to feel sorry for him when considering the series of events that built up to this.
  • Yandere: A rare male example, he does not take the news about Sky already having a boyfriend well, going as far as hindering Sky's chances at the million.


"My name is Ella. I was a huge fan of Total Drama World Tour. I memorized all the songs from that season and performed them at the local mall in a one person flash mob! The nice security man told me I had a beautiful voice, and that I was banned from the mall."

Teams: Waneyihtam Maskwak (Confused Bears)

  • All-Loving Heroine: She is just impossible to anger, although hurting her animal friends will make her upset.

  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Fell in love with Dave after he helped her in "A Blast From The Past".

  • Canine Companion: Ella gets a dog name Lady Ribbon from Selene in Friendly-Unfriendly Indian Three-Way.
  • The Chick: Of Team Maskwak.

    • In her audition video, she says that she was banned from her local mall, also as she was singing "Please pick me!", the thin walls in her apartment has also caused Mr. McGillis to tell her to keep it down, to which she promptly apologizes.
    • Chris is also especially annoyed by Ella's signing to the point where he threatens to boot her from the show if she sings again in "A Blast from the Past". Chris follows through on his threat in the following episode, after Sugar sells her out by sending an anonymous letter to him.
      Ella: ♪Good morning, other team!♪ Who would like to hear a song?
      Chris: (over the loudspeaker) NO ONE, Ella!
  • The Cutie: A songbird with a personality as angelic as her singing voice.

  • Girly Run: She does this in "A Blast from the Past" as she retrieves one of her team's dueling sticks.

  • Heroes Love Dogs: Her dog, Lady Ribbon.
  • Heroic BSoD: She suffers from one in "Mo Monkey Mo Problems", after Dave tells her that he is attracted to Sky and not her. During the challenge, she is barely emotive until her teammates needed her to serenade a bear in order to get Dave free and try to get it to spit their monkey out.
  • High-Class Gloves: Wears them frequently.
  • Hoist by Their Own Petard: A rare heroic example. Chris gives Ella an ultimatum during the elimination ceremony of "A Blast from the Past": if she sings again, she is automatically eliminated. Unfortunately, the trope is invoked an episode later when her team needed her to sing to a bear to save Dave and retrieve their monkey, and Sugar tells Chris that Ella sang.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: She accepts the fact that Dave loves Sky.
  • Kill the Cutie: Sugar achieves this in "Mo Monkey Mo Problems".
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: The light to Sugar's dark.
  • The Load: Downplayed. While she at least tries to help her team and sometimes successfully does so, her actions on occasion can be viewed as detrimental.
    • In "So, Uh, This is My Team?", she retrieves a bucket of glitter instead of any useful building material.
    • In "I Love You, Greased Pig!", she sings and dances with the pig, which slows her down; however, she does actually complete her leg of the challenge, unlike Leonard.
    • In "I Love You, I Love You Knots", after undoing her knot, she offers to help Rodney, her opposition, and she is hesitant to push the button to shock Team Kinosewak to win the tiebreaker. However, Clucky the chicken snatches the remote out of Ella's hand, shocking Rodney and the rest of his team.
  • Mind-Control Music: While not exactly mind controlling, her singing has a very unusual, powerful hold on nearby animals.
  • Magic Skirt: Invoked by means of her little bird friends.
  • Meaningful Name: The second half of "Cinderella".
  • Music Soothes the Savage Beast: She can calm and attract any animal using her beautiful voice. In fact even her team realises the power her singing holds over animals and even requests her to sing to the bear in order to subdue it in "Mo Monkey Mo Problems".
  • Naïve Everygirl: She tries her best to befriend Sugar, oblivious to the fact that Sugar neither likes nor trusts her.
  • Nice Girl: One of the nicest, if not the nicest character in the whole series; she is an Actual Pacifist who just wants to be everyone's friend.
  • Non Sequitur: After she gets electrocuted by Max in "A Blast from the Past", she gives one of these just before Chris goes to commercial.
    Ella: (trying to climb on to Chris' platform) Do you know where I can find the white rabbit? (falls back into the water)
  • OOC Is Serious Business:
    • She is visibly depressed after she realizes that Dave wasn't attracted to her.
    • She finally stood up to Sugar after she picked on her new dog much to everyone's surprise while Wataru falls in love with her more.
    Ella: You can be naughty to me, you can be naughty about my singing, you can be naughty to my friends... BUT YOU CANNOT BE NAUGHTY TO MY DOG!!!
  • Perpetual Smiler: It's very rare to see her without a smile on her face.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Subverted. She reveals, through song, that her outfit is actually a skirt and blouse.
  • The Pollyanna: Despite numerous attempts to break her, Ella usually maintains her sunny disposition. She even takes her elimination in stride, singing a song before she is shot out of the Cannon of Shame.
    • However, as a Double Subversion, she is visibly depressed when she realizes that Dave is attracted to Sky and not her, but she gets better, and still remains friends with both Dave and Sky.
  • Princesses Prefer Pink: And how! The only parts of her outfit that aren't pink are her sleeves.
  • Spontaneous Choreography: Though other than the animals joining in on occasion, she's usually the only one which participates.
  • Vocal Evolution: Her voice is higher than it was in her audition tape.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Believes everyone is good at heart, even when they physically abuse her on a regular basis (as Sugar does). Chris seems to be the only exception.

"In my mind, I'm always running from zombies, and if you're not, you're crazy!"

Voiced by: Zachary Bennett

Teams: Waneyihtam Maskwak (Confused Bears)

  • The Ace: Along with Jasmine, he excels in all areas of survival.
  • Action Duo: With Jasmine, especially in "Scarlett Fever".
  • Action Hero: While he's not stupid, his approach to the game centers around pulling off impressive physical feats, and kicking ass.
  • Amazon Chaser: He falls for Action Girl and Statuesque Stunner Jasmine.
  • Anti-Hero: Somewhere between the Disney and Classical subtypes. While he is certainly not a villain and is quite friendly to almost everyone, he has quite a few non-heroic traits, such as having a very self-centered survivalist style of thinking and being a bit of a coward.
  • The Apocalypse Brings Out the Best in People: Subverted the first time where it leads to his What the Hell, Hero? moment, but the second time round he seizes the opportunity and redeems himself.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Moments after Chris told the players that they could safely navigate the crystal cave as long as they didn't take any crystals, Shawn took a crystal because it was shiny.
  • Berserk Button: Any mention of the word "zombie" will either cause him to cower in fear, run for his life, or massacre anything in sight.
  • Character Development: His development from a zombie-fearing Dirty Coward to an Action Hero who decimates a whole legion of Chris Robots.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower:
    • He trained himself to shoot "snot rockets" because he thought it might come in handy one day.
    • He can also perform armpit serenades flawlessly. Chris was even moved to tears by his performance!
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: He not only believes zombies are real, but that the world has already fallen to a Zombie Apocalypse, and that being situated on an isolated island will increase his chances of survival. He's also known to come up with crazy conspiracy theories that keep getting crazier.
  • Cowardly Lion: He comes off as being quite cowardly or quirky, but time after time he will pull off something that shocks and amazes everyone around him.
  • Dirty Coward: Has a habit of running away during challenges when he thinks he's seen any sign of a zombie. However, he slowly overcomes this trait and becomes more selfless.
  • Doomsayer: One of his defining characteristics. In fact the original label he was promoted with was "The Paranoid Doomsayer".
  • Expy:
  • Everything's Deader with Zombies: The inclusion of a character with a zombie gimmick in a reality show, is itself an example of this.
  • Genius Bruiser: He is one of the best fighters in the series, yet is still fairly intelligent, having an encyclopedic knowledge of wilderness survival and zombies.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In "Hurl And Go Seek!", he sacrifices himself to slow down the "zombies" in order to give Jasmine a chance to escape.
  • Hypocritical Humor: When he finds out that Jasmine has claustrophobia he comments that it's sad when someone lets fear control their lives.
  • Ineffectual Loner: He has nothing against his team, but he refuses to sleep with them due to his zombie paranoia.
  • In-Series Nickname: He's been given the name "Zombie Boy" by Jasmine and Chris.
  • Jerkass Realization: His constant badmouthing of Jasmine in the confessional comes back to bite him hard in the finale, when Chris airs all the footage for her to see.
  • Jerk Justifications: His often cold, distant nature is explained as being due to him refusing to form attachments, as he considers them a weakness in a Zombie Apocalypse.
  • The Leader: Share this role with Sky on Team Maskwak, depending on the episode and whether he's acting quirky or not.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Shawn is a very skilled hand-to-hand combatant, but he also possesses Super Speed.
  • Loners Are Freaks: Subverted. While he does go off on his own sometimes, his teammates still like him and consider him a vital part of the team.
  • Love Is a Weakness: The reason he was originally reluctant to get into a relationship with Jasmine. As he believed becoming attached to her would make him hesitant to take her out should she became a zombie.
  • Must Have Caffeine: This combined with his video game addiction makes him paranoid of zombies.
  • Nice Hat: His toque.
  • No Social Skills: Subverted, while his zombie paranoia initially came off as weird, he is fairly nice and well-liked by his team.
  • Oddly Visible Eyebrows: Over the top of his toque.
  • Official Couple: Becomes this with Jasmine after the merge.
  • The One Guy: When it's down to the final four in Pahkitew Island.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: He would rather get eaten by a zombie than form an alliance with Sugar.

  • Real Men Wear Pink: Takes great pride in having worked at a bakery because his cake decorating skills allow him to camouflage himself in the wild.
  • Salt and Pepper: With Jasmine.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Taking after Harold.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Played straight early on, but he learns to rise up late in the season.

    • He also bails from the scene fairly often at any sign of zombies, but his best one was probably in "A Blast from the Past".
      Shawn: Zombies! I'm outta here!
  • Ship Tease: With Jasmine.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: He has substantial focus throughout the season due to his Ship Tease with Jasmine, his friendship with Dave, his zombie gimmick, and his Character Development from a Dirty Coward Doomsayer to a selfless Action Hero. Also considering he's a finalist, this makes him the overall the most focused on contestant in Pahkitew Island.
  • Super Speed: In "I Love You, I Love You Knots" as he chases after Dave, he manages to cover the distance between them of at least 10 ft, in the space of a second.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute:
    • To Harold due to his personality and role in the overarching story. As both are socially awkward boys with a huge arsenal of hidden talents, both are cowards with Girly Screams, and both become involved with a much larger dark-skinned girl. Furthermore they both had to partake in a talent show, where their talent unexpectedly wowed the judge and gave them the highest score.
    • His physical appearance of wearing a toque and whiskers, as well as his homeschooled background are also similar to that of Ezekiel.
  • Took a Level in Badass: See Character Development above.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: When he brutally knocks Jasmine into the lake using a jousting stick (having mistaken her for a zombie), she angrily hefts him up by his shirt and tells him she doesn't want to see him ever again. She remains upset for a full 4 episodes until he redeems himself by selflessly sacrificing himself for her in "Hurl and Go Seek!". Shawn almost blows his chances with Jasmine again after revealing in the confessional that he thought her plan for the money was stupid.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: As his character gimmick, Shawn is completely obsessed with the prospect of a zombie apocalypse.
  • Zombie Apocalypse: He believes one has happened in "A Blast from the Past", but it was actually Amy covered in vines. A similar incident occurs in "Hurl and Go Seek!", where food-poisoning causes his friends to turn pallid and zombie-like.


"I'm not here to meet boys, I'm here to win!"

Voiced by: Sarah Podemski

Teams: Waneyihtam Maskwak (Confused Bears), Pimâpotew Kinosewak (Floating Salmon)

  • Action Girl: In the first episode, she immediately displays her impressive athletic skill by sliding and flipping off of a tree in her path as she falls from the zeppelin.
  • Arch-Enemy: Sugar, after "Scarlett Fever".
  • Badass Adorable: See Pintsized Powerhouse.
  • Balloon Belly: She gains one after she drank a large jug of mineral water as a dare. Needless to say, it wasn't pretty.
    Sky: (in the confessional) You know that feeling you get when a volcano is about to go off in your gut, and you have no idea which end's gonna blow? (her stomach growls) Yeah.
  • Berserk Button: She does not tolerate unsportsmanlike conduct at ALL and was ready to attack Scarlett and Max for electrocuting Ella in "A Blast from the Past" (granted, Max was the one who did it, but it was Scarlett's idea).
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Years of athletic training have given her extremely strong lungs, allowing her to belch powerfully.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Averted. While seeing Ella being affectionate towards Dave clearly causes her discomfort, she doesn't hold it against either of them, and even tries to comfort Ella when Dave rejects her.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: To Ella, as she keeps her from breaking into song at inappropriate times especially after Chris threatens to kick Ella off the show if she sang again.
  • Determinator: Absolutely determined to win at (almost) any cost.
  • Erotic Dream: Downplayed a bit due to this being a kid's show but she had one about a muscled up Dave in episode 7.
  • Expy: Of Jen Masterson.
  • Gasshole: She belches when she is nervous, especially around a guy she likes. Her talent for the talent show was being able to belch forcefully enough to destroy objects, with Improbable Aiming Skills to boot, destroying two targets with a single belch while Chris sat unharmed between them.
    Sky: All my Olympic training makes my abs and diaphragm ridiculously strong. When I really load up on carbonated water, I can burp out a campfire.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Her necklace, part of her blouse, and her high tops.
  • Guile Hero: Usually subverted, but she attempts to be this way to Sugar in "Pahk'd with Talent". She briefly crosses over into Manipulative Bitch territory when she uses Dave's feelings for her in the finale.
  • Hypocrite:
    • She says in "A Blast from the Past" that she doesn't like underhanded playing... Cut to three episodes later and she's playing dirty as well.
    • She expects her competitors to be sportsmanlike, yet she's prone to becoming a Sore Loser.
  • I'm Not Here to Make Friends: A variation: "I'm not here to meet boys, I'm here to win!"
  • I Did What I Had to Do: Rejecting Dave at the merge to focus on the competition. She didn't want to, but his Sanity Slippage was starting to affect her as well.
  • Innocently Insensitive: In "Mo Monkey Mo Problems", Sky is elated to hear that Dave likes her; however, this revelation is the reason why Ella showed up to the meeting area depressed. Sky tries to be more sensitive to Ella's feelings but fails.
  • Just Friends: How she attempts to view her relationship with Dave. Unfortunately, in the finale, Dave doesn't take the news of Sky already having a boyfriend outside of the game lightly.
  • The Leader: Shares this role with Shawn on Team Maskwak, depending on the episode and whether or not Shawn is acting quirky. See Reasonable Authority Figure.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: The light to Sugar's dark.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Girl: To Dave.
  • Motivational Kiss: To Dave in final.
  • Nice Girl: She's friendly and compassionate. However she does have a strong competitive streak that surfaces throughout the season and becomes more overt in the final few episodes, where she acts fairly catty towards her main opponent Shawn ("Wow, English much?") and throws an outright temper tantrum at one point.
  • Only Sane Woman: She is the only member on Team Maskwak with any common sense.
  • Opposites Attract: With Dave.
  • Passionate Sports Girl: As you can tell from her title.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: She's the smallest girl in the season and one of the most physically capable contestants overall.
  • Plucky Girl: Sky strives to see the best in people. She can be encouraging and will give advice to those who require it. However, she is firmly, and sometimes aggressively, against anyone who exhibits foul play. She also faces difficulty when her nerves and emotions get the better of her and cloud her judgement.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Even though she didn't necessarily agree with the idea of building a wizard tower in "So, Uh This Is My Team?", she went along with it because the majority of the team wanted to build it and she felt it was better to build something rather than nothing.
  • Second Place Is for Losers: As a Passionate Sports Girl, she has a strong belief in this.
  • Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer: Her audition tape (along with Shawn's) was never shown alongside the rest of the participants', though for a very good reason. Her audition tape reveals that she has a boyfriend named Keith, who she wished to break up with but didn't have time to, and during the season finale Chris shows this tape to Dave, which kick-starts the latter's Face–Heel Turn.
  • Ship Tease: With Dave.
  • Sore Loser: Threw a temper tantrum when she thought she was about to lose to Dave and Jasmine in the finale.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: She has a substantial amount of focus in the season, especially her Ship Tease with Dave, as well as her involvement with the Ella-Sugar conflict, which eventually results in her own rivalry with the latter.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: Subverted. Once she and Dave are placed on separate teams, she's pressured into turning against him for the sake of the competition, and their relationship begins to deteriorate from this point onwards.
  • Super Speed: In an adrenaline rush, she puts on an inhuman burst of speed in "Pahk'd With Talent".
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute:
    • Early on she was frequently compared to Zoey. Due to her physical appearance, her Action Girl persona, and to some extent, her relationship with Dave.
    • She's also similar to Courtney as both are fierce competitors who value winning over relationships and friendships.
  • Team Mom: She holds her team together, and tends to their individual problems when required.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: While she actively loves sports, she won't shy away from romantic interactions with Dave.
  • Tsundere: Type B towards Dave at first; however, it turns into Type A as the season goes on.
  • Tsurime Eyes

  • Cool Big Bro
  • Cool People Rebel Against Authority
  • Nice Hat
  • Momma's Boy: Wataru's close to Zoey as Selene's close to Mike.
  • Prince Charming: To Ella and he's the prince and future King of Harmonia.
  • Strong Family Resemblance:
    • Wataru is the identical son of Mike/ King Alois except the former has red hair, one brown eye and one golden eye, and pale skin. Right now, he's posing as Mike's fraternal but identical twin brother.
    • Also according to Cameron, Wataru's a mixture of Raven and Artemis, which was why Selene was so close to them when she first developed them.
  • Mismatched Eyes: Well in his right eye while both in his dragon/mascot fairy form.
