Teams: Toxic Rats, Team Geniuses

A very intelligent guy who is calm and never says a word.


The Geek

"I see the ladies have already arrived. Alright!"

Voiced by: Peter Oldring

Teams: Screaming Gophers, Team Amazon, Team Geniuses

Cody's an only child from the suburbs who's been spoiled all his life. While his ample allowance easily buys him every trend-setting, techno-gadget, teen-savvy accessory required to be on the 'cutting edge of cool', he cannot buy the personality required to back it up.

Despite spending most of his life in the local mall (since that's the best place to study teens in the throes of 'being cool') none of it's helped his cause. Unfortunately, Cody doesn't know any of this. He thinks of himself as the coolest-of-all-dudes-in-the-burbs (his words).

At his prep school, Upper Crust College, he is considered pretty cool (but that's only within a select group of guys who belong to the Albert Einstein Fan Club - i.e. all geekier than Cody.) So while he boasts about knowing the 'cool code' (he doesn't), and has devoted his whole life to studying and mastering it (not really), and totally scores with the ladies (all myth and no legend), his real strengths are in maths and sciences, which isn't exactly your typical 'cool kid' skill set.

Cody's confident he can "swing" with the cool kids at Total Drama Camp (his word, clearly!). His only concern: whether or not the cafeteria will be providing the four essential food groups. Just to be safe, he's bringing a doctor's note, because it's hard to be cool when you're worried about the hypoglycemic index of your diet.

One day he'll be cool, when he starts his own tech support firm and makes millions off the kids who peaked in high school (and slept through computer studies). Maybe.

The Home-Schooled Guy

"Well, guys are much stronger and better at sports than girls are, eh."

Voiced by: Peter Oldring

Teams: Killer Bass, Team Victory, Team Geniuses, Team Spirit

Ezekiel is really really REALLY excited to be on Total Drama Island. He doesn't usually get a chance to hang out with real, live kids. (He's used to the 3D ones he sees on TV). That's because his parents (both Home Ec. teachers) think that it's best for their child to "only be exposed to the finest sorts of people, and receive the highest standard of education." That's why Ezekiel is home-schooled.

The only reason Ezekiel's parents signed him up for Total Drama Island is because their family doctor was concerned about his Vitamin-D deficiency, so they were instructed to get him out of the house and into fresh air. Now he has to learn to be around other kids for the first time in his life. He's looking forward to this experiment (an experiment with a socially useless guinea pig).

The last time Ezekiel was in public was when he competed in the National Spelling Bee Challenge. He asked the 3rd place girl if she weighed "enough" and told the 2nd place guy that he'd be pretty good looking if he wasn't so dirty. Both runners up swore at him in different languages. Ezekiel knows because he speaks 8 languages himself. The only one he hasn't mastered is 'teenspeak', which explains why his boasting to the runners-up that they were just jealous because he won the spelling bee and 'licked their butts', got Ezekiel the biggest 'butt kicking' of his life.

While Ezekiel may excel at every subject in home-schooling, only time will tell if he can handle the curriculum at Total Drama Island's 'School of Hard Knocks'.

  • Attention Whore: Justified, given that he was a sheltered, home-schooled kid.
  • Butt-Monkey: He's not really taken as a serious competitor and bad things just happen to him all the time, especially Chris who insults him at every opportunity.
  • By the Lights of Their Eyes: Happens whenever he hides in a dark spot.
  • Canada, Eh?
  • Character Development: Oddly, throughout the course of Revenge of the Island and All-Stars he shows more human-like traits, such as walking on two legs, comprehending human speech, and coming up with a scheme to kidnap and kill Chris.
  • The Chew Toy: It gets worse every season, though he usually has it coming.
  • Determinator: Even after his early elimination in World Tour, he's dead set on winning. He manages to stay with the plane despite repeated attempts to eject him, survives in the hold for the entire season, and eventually makes it to the finale location even without the plane. As a side effect, however, he pretty much became feral over the course of the season.
  • Farm Boy
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: He gets better as seen at the start of Erin's Total Magical Adventure.
  • Geek
  • Greed
  • Homeschooled Kids
  • Iron Butt-Monkey: His injuries in World Tour would be fatal to any real person, without exception and with absolutely no chance of survival.
  • Jive Turkey: As "The Zeke."
  • Nice Hat: His toque. It disappears at some point during his transformation in season three. He has it back in Erin's Total Magical Adventure, where he's show to be back to normal.
  • Poisonous Person: Implied to have been made radioactive after his fiasco during Revenge of the Island. His drool is now corrosive.
  • Primal Stance: After his transformation.
  • Small Name, Big Ego
  • Southern-Fried Genius: Had he stayed in the competition and he could've shown some impressive talents, like being able to speak multiple languages, this was shelved out in favor of him being sexist, and Harold Beat-Boxing as the last talent act of the challenge in "Not Quite Famous".
  • Straw Misogynist: At the beginning of Island, setting both Bridgette and Eva off, and earning his elimination.
  • Tan Lines
  • Took a Level in Badass: In All-Stars, he kidnaps Chris, holds him over a pit of toxic waste, cages most of the contestants before they can save Chris, gains corrosive spit thanks to the toxic waste, defeats Chef before he can save Chris, and escapes without being noticed.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Somehow has completely recovered from his feral state and returned to his human form. However, he's stuck in a dolly, until "Pranking Nether-Of-Them".
  • Verbal Tic: His "eh", and his wannabe-gangster language from "Haute Camp-ture" onwards.
  • Vertical Kidnapping: How he snatches Alejandro up in "Zeek and Ye Shall Find."
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: The first contestant voted off in Total Drama history. Interestingly, he gets more screen time after he turns feral.

The Dweeb

"Time to unleash my wicked skills!"

Voiced by: Brian Froud

Teams: Killer Bass, Screaming Gaffers, Team Victory, Team Geniuses

Told that he'd never walk again due to a bad allergic reaction to Gummi-Slugs, Harold's a survivor (He has no problem with other Gummi products).

He has earned the most badges of any kid at Possum Scouts. That includes one for fire building and troll wrestling (okay, he made that one up).

He has an older brother and a kid sister and both of them think he's kind of weird. He's okay with that. He thinks being weird is a badge of honor - actually he embroidered his own badge for "weirdness".

At least he's not some lemming like everybody else. His classmates call him dorky, but he's confident that won't be the case on Total Drama Island. Hidden in that bike rack he calls a body, he's got some unexpected wicked skills that will come in very handy in the woods. His love of medieval fantasy literature and intense scout training makes him the guy to have on your team.

Harold believes in yourself - no matter what people say about you, or what they're throwing at you, you've got to stay strong. His big brother calls him an over-exaggerating melodramatic fret-bucket - but that's HIS opinion. Although there was that one time he stubbed his toe and waited in the ER for 13 hours until a doctor finally told him that he wouldn't have amputate.

Since he's pure of heart and strong of will, this noble warrior will go far (he has to, because he's already embroidered a badge that says so).

  • Aborted Arc: At the end of Island and the first few episodes of Action, he was developing a one-sided friendship with and attraction to Heather. This was dropped by the time Courtney returned mid-season.
  • Adorkable: Just listen to his song in the first World Tour Aftermath!
  • Berserk Button: Don't toy with his feelings for Leshawna, especially if you're Duncan.
  • Butt-Monkey
  • Captain Superhero: In "Super Hero-Id" he names himself Captain Alberta for the superhero challenge.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "Gosh!"
    • "Idiots!"
  • Chekhov's Skill: In-universe, he constantly wins challenges using skills he picked up at "(adjective) Steve's (skill) Camp".
  • The Chew Toy: And how! He's been injured the most out of any Total Drama contestant.
  • Cool Shades: Wears them while singing "Baby" in the first World Tour Aftermath.
  • Covert Pervert
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: The recurring trait of his character. Best seen in "Dodgebrawl" when he starts off as The Load only to save his team in the end.
  • Embarrassing Middle Name: Doris. Yes, Duncan knows, and yes, he milks it for all its worth.
  • Expy: Of Napoleon Dynamite.
  • Geek
  • Geek Physique: His design gives him far thinner limbs than anyone else.
  • Graceful Loser: He leaves Island with his head held high, reflecting how he has loved, lost, and saw boobies.
  • Groin Attack: Harold should just wear a cup at all times because his groin is just a magnet for pain.
  • He Knows Too Much: Knowing that Owen was Chris' spy earned a critical extra vote against him in Action.
  • Hidden Depths: Pretty much his entire character is that he has some hidden skill or knowledge that can either help them in a challenge or annoy everyone.
  • Insufferable Genius: At his worst.
  • Killer Yoyo: His num-yos.
  • Nerd Glasses
  • Nerds Are Sexy: Leshawna and Beth seem to think so.
  • Nice Guy
  • Otaku: He loves ninjas, samurais and Japanese pop culture in general.
  • Overly Long Name: His full name is "Harold Norbert Cheever Doris McGrady V".
  • Plot Allergy: In one episode of season one, he said he was allergic to apples and couldn't participate in a challenge. Courtney and Sadie did it instead, which resulted in Sadie's elimination. Weirdly enough, he accepted some apple juice (actually kitchen grease) from Duncan in the next episode.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: If his biography is any indication, he can sew.
  • Salt and Pepper: The salt to Leshawna's pepper.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl
  • Secret Admirer: To Leshawna in Island.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Though he has a fair amount of skills. He tends to say he's capable of things that he's proven not to be able to do. His Ladiesman facade counts to.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad‎: Despite being eliminated fairly early in every season he competes in; he is still one of the most heavily focused characters, with some of the highest amount of side-plots focused on him.
  • The Smart Guy: On both the Killer Bass and Team Victory.
  • Tan Lines
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: In World Tour, though he gets a lot more screen time in the Aftermaths, in which he is one of the only characters to consistently get lines.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: He rigged the votes to get Courtney eliminated to get back at Duncan. Everyone including Harold himself felt it was uncalled for.
  • Where Da White Women At?: His relationship with Leshawna turns this trope on its head.
  • Wingding Eyes:
    • Gets hearts in his glasses when he talks about Leshawna in "Haute Camp-ture".
    • Makes a "O_<" expression when he mimes stabbing himself with a toy lightsaber in "Super Crazy Happy Fun Time In Japan".
  • Youthful Freckles: They can be hard to see, but they're there.

The Psycho Hose Beast

"Genius runs in my family... so does psychotherapy... HEY did I tell you guys I have an IQ of 188? cuz I do."

Voiced by: Katie Crown

Teams: Killer Bass, Screaming Gophers, Killer Grips, Team Amazon, Team Chris is Really, Really, Really, Really, Hot, Team Geniuses, Team Spirit

Izzy has been described by those who know her as a "wingnut", a "psycho hose beast" and "some kind of crazy". For as long as she can remember, she's been a big fan of 'the witching hour'. Her parents once awoke at midnight to find 1 year old Izzy shaking the bars of her crib and howling at the full moon. They soothed her back to sleep with her favorite lullabies - horror movie soundtracks; the only music that relaxes her.

Being around Izzy is like being on a roller coaster - one that hasn't been inspected for safety. Some of her favorite pastimes include impersonating her parents' friends, burning things, and making up stuff that scares the crap of people.

There's no rhyme or reason to what Izzy does. For instance, a guy from her school remembers when Izzy stalked him for a whole week because she had a major crush on him. He also remembers how later she changed her mind and threw him in a sewer.

When Izzy heard about Total Drama Island audition, she camped outside a producer's front door for three weeks until he agreed to cast her on the show. He now has a restraining order against her and she can't come within two miles of his house. Izzy is willing to do whatever it takes to survive 8 weeks of camp and is definitely one to watch... she'll definitely make the highlight reel!

The High IQ

"Yeah, this is gonna work."

Voiced by: Carter Hayden

Teams: Screaming Gophers, Team Chris is Really, Really, Really, Really Hot, Team Geniuses

Ever since Noah was in diapers and examining the nutritional content of his pablum ingredients, his parents knew they had a genius in their midst. Noah is a child prodigy with IQ readings that are off the charts, but the only numbers Noah is proud of are the high scores on his online video game competitions. He's the only one in his Underground Alliance who knows how to get to the secret 12th level of Dragon-Assassin.

His heroes are Newton, Pythagoras, and Kranthor from the game Kosmic Kaos. With his multi-weaponed-fantasyland survival skills unchallenged, he auditioned for Total Drama Island hoping he could apply those skills to the real world.

While he's not remotely coordinated or athletic, Noah is clever enough to come up with remarkable theories of why he should sit this one out, should he be asked to participate in anything that involves more than mental acuity. He learned that trick in gym class.

He may have an active mind, but he sure likes to sit. He includes that as one of his favorite hobbies. He also likes lying down - and occasionally leaning. He knows he'll take a lot of heat for being the egghead nerd of the group, so he intends to beat them to the punch by unleashing an arsenal of sarcastic digs and put-downs. He's got a sharp mind and plans on doing some cutting.

Being the runt of a nine-sibling litter, Noah has found a way to use his brain over brawn with clever manipulation. He never got picked on in the school yard because he always knew how to draft some lunkhead into smashing somebody's face in if they got too close.



Kotone is so beautiful, she's like an angel.

Voiced by: Peter Oldring

Teams: Toxic Rats, Mutant Maggots, Villainous Vultures, Team Geniuses, Team Hope

Richard is an shy and socially-awkward boy whose dream is to become a doctor, like his father. He's also the twin brother of Robbie, who participated in Total Drama World Tour.


Okay Total Drama, The Mad Scientist Robbie is here!

Voiced by: Scott [McCord]

Teams: Team Victory, Team Chris is Really, Really, Really, Really, Hot, Villainous Vultures, Team Geniuses, Team Wonder

Robbie is born to a family of doctors. However, unlike his family, he's a Mad Scientist.

His parents are doctors, and his twin brother studies so hard to become one, while Robbie himself, on the other hand, is a Mad Scientist. He won the science fair for the first time in first grade.

After auditioning for Total Drama Island and Total Drama Action and not making the cut both times, being part of Total Drama World Tour is a dream come true. During his time in the competition, he becomes closer to Shana, even though they were in opposite teams.

The Obsessed Uber-fan

Sierra is the Total Drama series' biggest fan…really she is. Other people say they are the biggest Total Drama fan, but they have nothing on her.

Unlike these "fans", Sierra is a third-generation Chris McLean scholar and her mom made their guestroom the "Chris McLean Museum", so her love for Total Drama started before the show even began. Once Total Drama Island did start, Sierra was hooked. She has at least a blog and fan site for Chris, Chef and the 22 original campers. Thanks to a source close to her, Sierra has tons of info on everybody, ranging from public and embarrassing to personal and private.

Her favorite contestant is Cody, the only person that she knows more than Chris. Sierra has dreams, photos and 30 fan pages of the little guy. She dreams of the day that they will be married and have many little Codys.

After auditioning for Total Drama Island and Total Drama Action and not making the cut both times, being part of Total Drama World Tour is a dream come true. With her ability to retain every single fact, figure, elimination and relationship status of very single Total Drama player, she could go all the way and win the million. The best part is that now she can spend time with her Cody-kins.

  • Abhorrent Admirer:
    • To Cody.
    • She is also this to Cameron in season 5. Interestingly, she's actually still incapable of getting her mind off Cody, as soon as she develops a crush on Cameron, she begins to see him as Cody rather than himself. Even when she realizes Cameron is not Cody she still nicknames him "Cam-Cody"; and seems perfectly satisfied with the situation.
  • Action Girl: Have you seen how hard she can kick ass?
  • Ambiguously Brown: Although she mentions that her grandparents are German.
  • Anti-Hero: Type two in World Tour. She isn't really intentionally heroic or evil, but all her heroic actions are done solely to benefit Cody and she also commits many selfish and antagonistic acts for him as well. Aside from this, she's reasonably nice to the other contestants as long as they don't mess with Cody. During All-Stars, Cody's absence causes her to shift into neutral territory and she spends most of her time on the island obsessing over Cody and Cameron instead of competing seriously. For her troubles, though, she still gets placed on the hero team.
  • Ascended Fangirl: She was an avid fan of Total Drama far before she actually got to participate in it.
  • Ax-Crazy: A situational case, as Heather discovered after Sierra won a drill in a challenge and had been fooled by Alejandro into thinking that Heather had stolen Cody.
  • Bald Woman: Her hair is burned off when she accidentally destroys the Total Drama Jumbo Jet. Her hair grew back; however, like Heather in World Tour, Sierra has a short braid in All-Stars.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Geoff even signed it.
  • Berserk Button: Insult or harm Cody, and you're a dead man. Or Bear. Or shark.
  • The Big Girl: On Team Amazon.
  • Big Name Fan: In-universe.
  • Camera Fiend: She sneaks in her phone in All-Stars, allowing her to update her blog with up close pictures of the contestants. Very up close. Immensely disturbing Gwen in Episode 1.
  • Catchphrase: "Yeeha!"
  • Chekhov's Skill: Her basket weaving skills first appears as a New Powers as the Plot Demands in the second episode of the third season, but becomes a recurring skill in her arsenal.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Calling for a Group Hug then telling Gwen, Courtney and Heather to back off while she's glomping Cody.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: A stand-out example. From using an old pizza box and a live mouse to update her blog (and it's unclear if it actually WORKED or if it was all in her head) to "marrying" Cody in a challenge and spending nearly the remainder of the season believing it was legal, it's considerably rare for Sierra to demonstrate actual functioning logic.
    Cameron: You know you're in trouble when the only person with a plan is Sierra.
  • Cody Centered Morality
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Sierra may come off as a weird, deluded fangirl, but she's also saved the lives of the other contestants countless times.
  • The Cutie: She has a high-pitched, sweet, childish voice and constantly comments on things being cute (even a leech on her face), that is, until someone pushes her Berserk Button. Then she becomes Cute and Psycho.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle : Sierra is the instigator of many of these, especially when defending Cody. So far, the only battles she didn't win were her fight with Courtney (that ended in a double knock-out) in the World Tour wrestling challenge, and her boxing match against a mutated giant rat in All-Stars (where she was at the receiving end).
  • Determinator: If it's for Cody's sake, Sierra can do anything.
  • Entitled to Have You: Stalking aside, she doesn't quite get that Cody has the right to refuse her advances, or really acknowledge him as an independent being.
  • Fangirl: A deconstruction of one. What would happen if a grossly passionate fan was allowed on the show? Well...
  • Friendless Background: Sierra mentions that she never made friends as a kid on account of her... quirkiness.
  • Gamer Chick: Her Third Life avatar is a Druid warrior elf with level 35 sword skills and level 62 massage.
  • Genki Girl: Outside of her obsessiveness and overly-affectionate attitude, her defining characteristic is her enthusiasm and energy.
  • Going Cold Turkey: She gradually slips into (further) insanity in All-Stars after she is deprived of access to her blog and Cody.
  • Handicapped Badass: Her temporary stint in a wheelchair did not stop her from defending Cody from a shark.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: More like a huge high school girl, but she is the tallest female contestant and just behind Leshawna and Sadie for the widest. She's even taller than 6 foot Alejandro, and only Owen, Geoff and DJ are taller than her.
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure
  • Inelegant Blubbering: When Sierra cries... it's not graceful.
  • In the Blood: Sierra's mother has the same obsessive tendencies that Sierra herself displays, if to an even greater extent, having converted their guest bedroom into a museum for Chris.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: In "Slap Slap Revolution", Sierra is putting another notch in her belt every time Heather thinks she's using her. She proceeds to show the audience, and her jeans fall down, revealing her pink panties to the whole world. She thinks nothing of it.
  • It Runs in the Family: She mentions that she comes from a long line of Basket Weavers.
  • Large Ham: She has her moments in "Niagara Brawls" and "African Lying Society".
  • L33t L1ng0: Although it becomes less noticeable as the season goes on and her character develops.
  • Leitmotif: Creepy Background Music tends to play whenever she attempts to get intimate with Cody or mentions any fact about the Total Drama cast.
  • Loony Fan: Of Total Drama in general and especially Cody.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Love makes you crazier, to be exact.
  • Made of Iron: As part of her powers, Sierra takes an inordinate amount of pain and remains functional enough to compete. She's smashed through a canyon and caused an Impact Silhouette, taken a cannonball to the stomach and while she said that she would need surgery she was nonetheless active in the rest episode and was unharmed in future episodes. The only lasting damage was when she accidentally blew up Chris' plane. Despite being at the epicenter of the explosion and apparently being trapped under the wreckage, the damage only causes her hair to burned off and damage to her scalp, ankles, wrists that prevented her from standing up or being carried. Once she's in a wheelchair, she's fine. And even so, she still charges into shark-infested waters to save Cody.
  • Mama Bear: She has defended Cody from a polar bear, an angry Courtney, and a shark.
  • Multicolored Hair
  • Nightmare Fetishist
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Cody does not like having his feet touched. Sierra is utterly oblivious to this.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: A fan who's watched the show back and forth like her isn't falling for Heather's usual pawn tactics, though she certainly doesn't let it on outside of the confessional.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: When they need to strip-search a Buckingham Palace guard in the London episode, Gwen gets Sierra to do it by putting a Cody mask on him. Note that the real Cody was standing right next to Sierra, reacting about how you'd expect.
  • Parody Sue: Many people have said that she looks like an OC from a Self-Insert Fic.
  • Rapunzel Hair: At least until it's all burned off when she accidentally blew up the Total Drama Jumbo Jet.
  • Running Gag: Being an X generation something or other.
  • Sanity Slippage: In All-Stars, due to not having Cody around her.
  • Satellite Love Interest: Her only role in the show is to show how Cody would interact with one of his fangirls. It doesn't paint a pretty picture.
  • Self-Proclaimed Love Interest: For Cody.
  • Shipper on Deck: To Gwen/Duncan, sort of; she seems to support the idea of them together (probably at least in part because it's a good Ship Mate for her and Cody), but when they actually hook up she joins most of the others in denouncing them for going behind Courtney's back. However in All-Stars, she is fine with Gwen and Duncan together.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Extremely Cody-sexual. And what happens when she actually falls for another boy (Cameron)? Instead of realizing she likes Cameron as a separate person, she begins to hallucinate Cody's face on his and treats him the same way she would treat Cody.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: Towards Cody, of course!
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Aside from the usual suspects, she is one the most focused-on contestants in World Tour.
  • Stalker with a Crush: To Cody. Heck, she could actually give Amy Rose and Jackie Wackerman a run for their money.
  • Super Strength: She's consistently shown to be extremely strong. Sierra once managed hold the weight of her entire team when they were all hanging off the side of a cliff and pull them all up.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute:
  • Too Kinky to Torture: When she accidentally shoots herself in the face with a leech, she squeals, "It feels just like Cody's kiss!" before passing out.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Like Heather, she sports one in All-Stars.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: To Cody (despite not being in an official relationship with him).
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Faked being a mopey heart-broken wreck so Cody would notice her and called it "playing hard to get".

The Compulsive Liar

Staci is a girl who is very proud of having famous people within her long family branch (or so she claims). Sadly, she talks so much about them that anybody is bound to grow annoyed with her.


How well does it match the trope?
