The Wide-Eyed Bubble-boy

"Fresh air, a real lake, birds!"

Voiced by: Kevin Duhaney

Teams: Mutant Maggots, Heroic Hamsters, Villainous Vultures, Team Hope

Cameron is a nerd who does not go out too much due to his mother being overprotective.


  • Affectionate Nickname: Has been given several of these by others, such as "Stringbean" by Jo and "Shortstuff" by Anne Maria, though interestingly both of these started as insults before Cameron earned each of their respect.
  • Awesome by Analysis: Cameron spends a good deal of time making estimations and calculations that give him the edge, though sometimes he should spend more time paying attention to what he's doing.
  • Backstabbing the Alpha Bitch: Although Jo isn't strictly speaking an Alpha Bitch, the way she mistreats Cameron (and Brick) qualifies her for this trope when Cameron, fed-up with being her nerdy underling, finally turns on her and not only succeeds in getting back at her but also gets her eliminated.
  • Badass Bookworm
  • Bandage Mummy: Gets horribly injured in "Zeke and Ye Shall Find", which causes his elimination.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: In an episode of All-Stars, he is stuck on a raft with no motor alongside Zoey, Duncan and Scott, while all the other competitors have motors in their boats. What's his solution? Using Scott as bait for Fang in order to use Fang as their makeshift propeller.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Is both this to Mike, as well as Mike being one to him. Throughout late Revenge of the Island, Cameron would often try to help Mike keep his MPD under control, and advise him to tell Zoey about it. Mike in turn would give guidance to the socially sheltered Cameron such as telling him he need not spray so much paint in "Grand Chef Auto", as well as carrying him in "A Mine Is A Terrible Thing To Waste".
  • Big "NO!": When Sierra starts turning her attention onto him and when Mal reveals himself.
  • Blind Without 'Em: Cameron has poor eyesight without his glasses, as seen in "Moon Madness".
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In " Totally Virus Control Much?"
  • Bubble Boy: Raised like one. He also leaves in a bubble when he is eliminated in All-Stars.
  • Butt-Monkey: Not abusing the sheltered bubble boy is like not kicking a kickball, and just as Harold's designated source of pain was groin-injuries, Cam's usual mode of injury is wedgies.
    Cameron: Is this what pain tastes like!?
  • Catchphrase:
    • "Astounding!"
    • "... the odds are astronomical!"
    • "... highly illogical."
  • Chekhov's Gun: His bubble which, during the All-Stars finale, aids Zoey during the challenge by serving as a improvised raft for her and Gwen.
  • Ditzy Genius: He's definitely book smart, but he doesn't have much in way of Street Smarts.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Got Jo back good in "Up, Up, and Away in My Pitiful Balloon." After she has been taking advantage of his tech savvy and strong-arming him into an "alliance", Cam rigs the fog machine that he won to explode when Jo uses it, setting fire to the balloon he made for her and literally dropping her from the competition.
  • Dork Knight: As of "Brain Vs Brawn: The Ultimate Showdown", he is one of the most heroic characters in Total Drama history, having saved the entire cast from rampaging mutants. However, this still doesn't change the fact that he's one of the most cowardly characters in the entire series as well (his cowardice is second only to DJ's - no wonder Cam looks up to him!).
  • Elimination Houdini: Invoked. He avoided elimination all throughout season 4 despite being a liability pre-merge, and a challenge dominator post-merge, and was spared elimination twice by Chris in season 5 (although once he wanted to quit and the second time he was unfairly voted out by Mike/Mal).
  • Endearingly Dorky: Zoey thinks of him as such, even while she's in commando-mode.
  • Foreshadowing: Sierra used Cameron as a substitute for Cody throughout season five. Cameron is eliminated because he is put in a full body cast, just like Cody. Also like Cody, he is the eighth camper eliminated in his respective season. In addition, both were unable to warn the rest of the cast about some kind of imposing trouble because of the bandages covering their mouths.
  • Freaky Is Cool: He finds Mike's multiple personalities and Dakota's mutation fascinating.
  • Fun Size: He is the shortest contestant in the series, due to him aging slower as a result of being in a bubble.
  • Hates Being Touched: Cameron states it's an old problem of his, especially when Sierra is concerned.
  • If My Calculations Are Correct: Says something like this right before he does something awesome... or fails horribly.
  • I Want My Bubble: He cries this as he is mercilessly beaten down by a giant mutant beetle in "Ice, Ice Baby".
  • The Load: When the two team up in "The Enchanted Franken-Forest", Zoey expresses exasperation at how many times she has to rescue Cameron from the various creatures and traps inhabiting the forest. Jo also views him as this, calling him the team's "most expendable player".
    Jo: (after Cameron vomits after running to Mt. Looming Tragedy) If we were hamsters, I would've eaten you by now.
  • My Beloved Smother: One reason he is a Bubble Boy.
  • Nice Guy: In the Canadian and the iTunes Version where he wins, he shares the $1 million cash prize with the entire cast. Even enemies like Lightning and Scott.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • His reaction in "The Enchanted Franken-Forest" when he realizes that Lightning eliminated Zoey instead of him just so the jock could have his vengeance on him.
    • There are also a few in All-Stars; Such as in "Suckers Punched", when Chris announces the challenge is boxing:
      Cameron: (writing a note) This is the last will of I, Cameron Corduroy Wilkins.
    • But the biggest one yet occurs in "Zeek and Ye Shall Find", where he realizes who has really been screwing him over all this time, see Just Between You and Me
  • Older Than They Look: Despite being 16, he looks like a pre-teen, most likely a side effect of being a bubble boy.
  • The Only One I Trust: In All-Stars, Cameron starts to feel like the whole competition is against him, but he finds comfort in his only trustworthy friend, Mike. Which is a bad idea since Mike has been completely overpowered by his evil persona, Mal.
  • Power Creep, Power Seep: In his audition tape and in "Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!", he falls over from the weight of a butterfly landing on his head, and in "Ice, Ice Baby", he states that his clothes are weighing him down, preventing him from climbing a rock face. But in "Finders Creepers", he is strong enough to break out of the cocoon he was trapped in and defeat the giant spider with a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown. Also, with the aid of a robotic suit of armor, he manages to defeat Lightning to win the season... except for the American version where Lightning wins, in which case his armor runs out of power and he falls over first followed by Lightning following on top of him right after for an unintentional 3 count pin.
  • Race Lift: His prototype design had him as a white guy, but changed him to black instead.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Sierra starts to see him as one for Cody.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: In the episode "Ice, Ice Baby", he figures out that Mike has multiple personality disorder. Later, in "A Mine is a Terrible Thing to Waste", Cameron agrees to help Mike with his condition after forming an alliance to take down Scott. Unfortunately, Cam Cannot Keep a Secret, as Scott learns about Mike's disorder and exploits it to make Mike do his bidding in "Grand Chef Auto", ultimately causing Mike's elimination.
  • Shorter Means Smarter: He is the shortest and one of the most book smart contestants in the series.
  • The Smart Guy: Academically brilliant, but Cameron also has a lot of common sense, which is invaluable in this kind of show.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: He was the central focus in Revenge of the Island and still remained in the limelight for a substantial amount of time in All-Stars.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: He seems to be a blend of Beth's awkwardness, Harold's wealth of knowledge and unexpected resourcefulness to his team, and Cody's physical stature (to the extent that Sierra uses him as a substitute for Cody during season five).
  • Techno Wizard: In the Revenge of the Island finale, he built a working power suit. According to his online bio, he tried to patent the armour but got beaten to it by a guy with a goatee.
  • Teens Are Short: He is the shortest cast member in the series.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In the episode "Finders Creepers", he confesses to having arachnophobia, and even the tiniest spiders frighten him. Later, when he and various other players are trapped in a web by a giant spider, he breaks out of his web cocoon in a surge of adrenaline and beats the crap out of the giant spider. It cures him of his arachnophobia but it turns out it was actually Izzy in disguise, and now he is afraid of her.
  • Token Good Teammate: Becomes a second one for the Villainous Vultures
  • Unexplained Recovery: He goes from a full body cast to just a broken arm in the span of roughly four days.
  • Weak, but Skilled: His intelligence makes up for his weak stature.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Uses someone with an extreme phobia of sharks (Scott) as shark bait. Even Cameron himself is surprised by his own actions.
  • Why Did It Have To Be Spiders: He overcomes it; see Took a Level in Badass above (however, since the Giant spider is revealed to be Izzy in disguise he develops a new fear.)
  • Worthy Opponent: Jo is initially furious when Cameron backstabs her, but when he tells her he "learned from the best" (referring to her) she cuts him some slack and compliments his cunning tactic.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: He manages to pull one on Jo.

    Dawn

The Moonchild

"I can read people's auras, and it looks like someone threw up on yours."

Voiced by: Caitlynne Medrek

Teams: Toxic Rats, Team Hope, Team Spirit

Dawn is a peaceful and mysterious girl who loves to get close to nature. She has the freaky ability to read people's auras.


  • Break the Cutie: In "Backstabbers Ahoy", 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.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: The other campers view her as this.
  • Creepy Child: 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 even refers to her as "creepy girl".
  • Cute Witch: 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.
  • Death Glare: A surprisingly effective one. Beware the Nice Ones, indeed.
  • The Empath: 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.
  • Expy: Of Luna Lovegood. She also plays the role of some of Russell Hantz's victims.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She epends most of her free time interacting to various creatures, even the mutant animals seem to like her.
  • Lotus Position: She's often seen sitting in that position.
  • Magic Skirt: She hangs upside-down in episode two, yet her skirt stays in place. In "Finders Creepers", she's caught by the giant spider (Izzy in a costume) and hanging sideways from the web, yet her skirt stays in place, as well as her hair.
  • Occult Blue Eyes: Grayish-blue actually, given her spiritual nature.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: Normally, Dawn is a soft spoken girl who doesn't show ill will towards anyone, although she might show disappointment towards someone. In "Backstabbers Ahoy" , however, she clearly shows contempt towards Scott for sabotaging their team.
  • Pointy Ears: Her design makes her ears look as such, adding to her already mystical like nature.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt/Stocking Filler: Similar to Gwen, the art style makes it hard to tell which. Gwen was only revealed to wear Stocking Filler when her skirt was removed in one episode, but Dawn never ended up losing/taking off some of her clothes.
  • Power Floats: Levitates to the finish line in the first episode of Revenge of the Island.
  • Psychic Powers: Knows Aura Vision and claims to be able to predict the future.
  • She Knows Too Much: She found out Scott's intentions to lose a little too soon for his liking. He frames her for taking everyone's stuff, and she ends up getting the boot from the contest.
  • Stealth Hi/Bye: She has a habit of appearing and disappearing without warning to her teammates. Needless to say, it freaks them out a bit.
  • Voice for the Voiceless: Since B doesn't speak, she acts as his voice when he is communicating his plans to the Toxic Rats.

    Gwen 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screamingGopher_gwen.jpg
The Loner
"If I win, I'm gonna buy Camp Wawanakwa so I can burn it down and turn it into a graveyard."

Voiced by: Megan Fahlenbock

Teams: Screaming Gophers, Screaming Gaffers, Team Amazon, Villainous Vultures, Team Hope

The daughter of a single mom, Gwen was a latch-key kid who grew up taking care of her kid brother. That's cool with Gwen, because she likes helping out her Mom, and has tons of fun with her brother, too. Like that time they put a bunch of beef bouillon cubes into the community Pool. (At least the neighborhood's dogs were happy!)

The only other thing she's passionate about is her art. She can lose herself in her sketch pad for hours and her favorite hobby is to go downtown on the weekends and people watch. She's been told she's talented and hopes to make a career out of it one day.

Gwen's the loner of her school, by choice. She doesn't need to hang out with a bunch of dorks just to feel better about herself and the last thing she'd do is follow a trend. Maybe a Trent... but never a trend. (wink wink!)

In fact, she wishes she never auditioned for Total Drama Island in the first place. She did it on a dare (to humor her brother) because she never thought they'd pick her. But now that she's been cast she figures she might as well make the most of it. Her plan is to play this thing out to the end just to prove what morons they really are. Besides, if she wins the $100,000 it would sure make life easier for her Mom.

Gwen may seem tough as nails on the outside, but when it comes to her family, she's as soft as... well, a marshmallow!

  • Action Girl: She's no pushover, even in physical challenges.
  • Aesop Amnesia: In the second Action aftermath, she says she's learned to be "straight up" so nothing can "bite her in the butt" again. By World Tour, she apparently forgot about that.
  • Amicable Exes: With Trent.
  • Anti-Hero: If not for her anti-social attitude and awkwardness, Gwen would be an Ideal Hero.
  • The Atoner: She only enters All-Stars so that she can try and fix her relationship with Courtney. Unfortunately, her attempts at being nice only result in Courtney getting humiliated and/or physically injured, making her even angrier and making Gwen feel even guiltier. She finally manages to win back Courtney's trust in "Suckers Punched", only to discover that Courtney planned to eliminate her despite their re-kindled friendship. The arc ends with their original roles being swapped, leaving Gwen angry and hurt while Courtney becomes the atoner.
  • Badass Adorable: Petite, skinny body? Check! Pixie like hair? Check! Can beat up anyone who hurts her or her friends? Double check!
  • Badass Unintentional: When she panicked and kicked a psycho killer in the face in "Hook, Line, and Screamer".
  • Balloon Belly: She grows a little baby bump after pigging out on the buffet in "The Big Sleep".
  • Big "NO!": Twice (and both in slow motion no less), the first instance in "The Big Sleep" when Trent fell asleep, leaving her to finish the challenge alone, and the second occurs in "The EX-Files" when Courtney tripped her so she'd drop the alien artifact and lose the challenge for their team.
  • Decoy Protagonist: In Action. Having just been a finalist in Island, Gwen is heavily focused on... until she ends up the fifth contestant eliminated.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: During Island.
  • Determinator: Her victory in "The Big Sleep" is a testament to her exceptional willpower.
  • Disappeared Dad: According to her online bio, her mother is now single.
  • Easily Forgiven: Only by Duncan in Action. He wouldn't vote her off and was impressed that she sabotaged her team instead of being angry with her. Averted by Courtney when she cheats with Duncan in World Tour. Trent, however, forgave her in both cases by the time they next saw each other.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Half-lampshaded by Alejandro in All-Stars, when he tells her that "[she] is as wise as [her] skin is translucent".
  • Enemy Mine: Gwen and Courtney's mutual dislike for Heather makes them bond in the first half of World Tour. Ironically, in most seasons, Gwen and Heather end in this very same situation more than once, and they actually make a very good team when putting their differences aside at least temporarily.
  • Expy: Of Nikki Wong. Her design also takes some cues from Joan of Arc.
  • Eye Scream: In "Picnic at Hanging Dork" her eucalyptus allergy causes her eyes to redden and swell to a nightmarish size.
  • The Fettered: Although usually depicted as unsocial and indifferent, Gwen is later shown to deeply care about how others perceive her, especially after dating Duncan.
  • Fighting Your Friend: Gwen is rigged to box with Courtney in All-Stars just as their friendship seems to be repaired. This actually proves cathartic for both of them as their punches let out all the anger they've had for each other and ultimately strengthens their friendship.
  • Final Girl: Parodied in both "Hook, Line and Screamer" and "Zeek and Ye Shall Find".
  • Fourth Ranger: To Mike, Cameron, and Zoey's ¡Three Amigos!.
  • Freudian Slip: Accidentally saying she dated Duncan instead of Trent in "Newf Kids on the Rock". Made all the funnier because she was talking about Heather's "obvious crush" on Alejandro at the time.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Most prominently in early season one episodes.
  • Goth: Develops into a Perky Goth later in the series.
  • Grumpy Bear: She has trouble dealing with Geoff simply because he's too happy.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Becomes this with Courtney in All-Stars until "Sundae Muddy Sundae", where she learns of Courtney's intention to betray her.
  • Intoxication Ensues: In "The Am-AH-Zon Race," she accidentally stabs herself with Cody's EpiPen. She's extremely hyper for a good chunk of the episode, but she crashes shortly before the challenge ends.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Early on Island.
  • Kaleidoscope Hair: She has alternating shades of light teal, black, and dark teal, though her status as the show's Goth means it's probably a dye job.
  • Morality Pet: Duncan's. In all three seasons, he's nicer to her than he's ever been to anyone else (including Courtney).
  • Not Helping Your Case: For a while, every attempt Gwen makes at patching things up between her and Courtney only makes Courtney hate her even more.
  • Once Done, Never Forgotten: Her reputation is defined solely as "boyfriend stealer" in All-Stars.
  • Only Sane Woman: She lampshades this herself in Island. See Out-of-Character Moment below.
  • Out-of-Character Moment:
    • In the last episode of the first season, when she insults approximately three-quarters of the entire cast, saying that only five of them were sane (which included some of the cast's most obviously flawed members).
    • Gets another one in "You Regatta Be Kidding Me!", in which, after becoming best friends with Courtney, she talks about the dream she had in which she rode on a fluffy unicorn across clouds made of marshmallows. Didn't expect her to say that, did you?
  • Perpetual Frowner: At first.
  • Plot Allergy: Her allergy to Eucalyptus, which is the reason why she lost to Courtney and was eliminated. Again in "Skultimate Frights", where J.Z. put Eucalyptus leaves inside her rollerskates, causing her feet to itch, prompting Zoey to take her place.
  • Relationship Upgrade: She starts dating Duncan in World Tour. She breaks up with him in "Moon Madness" when she realizes he still has feelings for Courtney.
  • The Runner-Up Takes It All: She alludes to this when she loses an elimination tiebreaker to Courtney in "Picnic at Hanging Dork".
  • Second Love: She falls in love with Duncan after falling in love with Trent, and likewise, he falls in love with her after falling in love with Courtney.
  • Shipper on Deck: In "Anything Yukon Do, I Can Do Better", she supports Cody/Sierra so that Cody will leave her alone. She also supports Courtney/Scott.
  • Shovel Strike: She hits Harold with a golden shovel in "The Chefshank Redemption".
  • Slut-Shaming: Falls victim to this. The reason she's on the Vultures team is...cheating. Cheating which she didn't initiate, and which no one will let her forget. When you consider what everyone else on the Vultures team did to get there...
  • Soapbox Sadie: Tries to be this, and comically fails due to the sheer idiocy of Katie and Sadie in the Celebrity Manhunt special.
  • Sole Survivor: She becomes the last original contestant remaining in All-Stars.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: She becomes notorious as a spotlight stealer when she and Courtney get involved in a Love Triangle with Duncan in World Tour.
  • Token Good Teammate: While Gwen has made a few mistakes in the past, she's still not evil like everyone else on the Villainous Vultures.
  • Tsundere: For a certain time, Type A towards Trent, but has largely grown out of it.
  • Twitchy Eye: In "The Am-AH-Zon Race" when under the effects of Cody's EpiPen.
  • Vocal Evolution: Her voice is higher in season three than in season one, possibly to show her Defrosting Ice Queen status.
  • What Have I Become?: What she feels for doing harm to Courtney in the first half of All-Stars.
  • When She Smiles: Admit it, you just want to cuddle her every time her mouth turns upwards!
  • Why Did It Have To Be Underground?
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Uses this on Cody in "Picnic at Hanging Dork" to help her get rid of Courtney.
  • Your Approval Fills Me with Shame: After accidentally triggering a booby trap that covers Courtney in garbage, Chris tells her she's definitely on the right team. Her reaction is predictable.

    Kotone 

Richard is so nice, giving me a medical advice.

Voiced by: Julie Lemieux

Teams: Mutant Maggots, Heroic Hamsters, Team Hope

Kotone is a Miko, from Tokyo, Japan, who works harder and also excells both at athletics and academics, but has spiritual powers.


  • Academic Athlete: She's very good at athletic and academics.
  • Action Survivor: She becomes almost a parody of one in "Sundae Muddy Sundae". While the crazy survivalist personality eventually fades, the skills that she suddenly obtained do not.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She gains the "aloof" part when she becomes "Shinobi Kotone" in "Sundae Muddy Sundae" and then loses it when she begins crying during the last part of the challenge.
  • Berserk Button: In "Grand Chef Auto", Kotone reached her limit when she witnessed Scott knocking Mike (as Vito) out cold and when Zoey told Mike they're done.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Kotone is usually kind and gentle, but has a cold, unforgiving and hostile demeanor towards Scott and Mal.
    • This got even worse in "Grand Chef Auto", where Scott hitting Mike (as Vito) on the head with a club and Zoey's sudden break up with him infuriated her.
  • Break the Cutie: She doesn't take it very well when Mal eliminated Cameron, Richard, Alejandro and Megumi in All-Stars. This caused her to be emotionally unstable.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: To Megumi.
  • Despair Event Horizon: She came close to it in "Zeek and Ye Shall Find", when Mal breaks her by talking. She finally crosses it in the end of The Obsta-Kill Kourse, when Alejandro and Megumi are eliminated, and when Mal destroys her MP3 player given by Megumi and her bracelet. After that, she has become the cynical Shinobi Kotone, until the end of the challenge, [[at the cost of her chances of winning the challenge, leading her to her downfall in hands of Mal.]] She is finally to her old hopeful self after Mal is wiped away from existence and Mike regains control.
  • Detect Evil: One of the powers as a shrine maiden.
  • Determinator: Kotone is not the type of people who give up. Lampshaded by Mal.
    Mal: Oh Kotone, you're always so determinated.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: In All-Stars; Since Evil Dread, Kotone began to dream about events that will happen, such as Scott accidentally hitting Mike (as Manitoba Smith) in the head with a shovel causing Mal's reawakening, Mal saying that he will take everyone down "one-by-one", etc. Which happened now.
  • The Empath: Justified since she's a shinto priestess from Tokyo.
  • The End of the World as We Know It: In All-Stars; Kotone seemed to think Mal will cause the end of the world if he's not stopped soon.
  • Expy: Kotone is similar to Rei Hino/Sailor Mars (both versions), because of her black hair, her status as a Miko, Ofuda attacks and of course, her Tsundere attitude (a trait from Anime!Rei Hino), except she's a Type B than a Type A.
  • Good Is Not Nice: She doesn't take her enemies' actions very kindly.
  • The Heart:
    • She even tried to stop the arguement between the her team in "Truth or Laser-Shark".
    • She also tried to stop the fight between Vito (Mike), Scott and Brick over the Toxic Rats' flag.
  • Heroic BSoD:
    • In No One Eggspects The Spanish Opposition, she completely snaps when she Mal took over Mike's body and traps Mike on his subconcious. She gets better in the next episode thanks to Shane.
    • She snaps into it again in the end of The Obsta-Kill Kourse, where she saw Megumi being flushed after Alejandro, when both of them are eliminated in hands of Mal. Even Mal is aware of it.
    Mal: Looks like Kotone has emotionally shut herself down. Now with that, she won't get in my way.
    • She snaps out of it in the next episode when she remembers her purpouse of defeat Mal and save Mike, much to Mal's chagrin and wrath.
  • Living Lie Detector: Justified. Her spiritual sense makes her able to detect people's lies, even Mal's.
  • Madness Makeover: When she dons war paint and a bandanna and makes two wristbands out of the bottom half of her shirt in "Sundae Muddy Sundae".
  • Mighty Whitey and Mellow Yellow: She's a Japanese Miko, Richard is a canadian Medic.
  • Miko
  • Nice Girl: Usually.
  • Not Herself: During "Sundae Muddy Sundae".
  • Paper Talisman: As a shinto priestess, Kotone can use Ofuda and in some occasions these power her attacks or negatively impact her enemies.
    • Holy Burns Evil: Her ofuda also burn anything or anyone that is pure evil when they come into physical contact with them, Even Mal, who is pure evil.
  • Plucky Girl
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Delivers one to Scott during their arguement in "Up, Up And Away In My Pitiful Balloon":
    "You're just an insensitive jerk who doesn't even care about anyone but himself! I'm surprised you made it this far!"
  • Sailor Fuku: She usually wears one, even has a summer version of it, but sometimes wears casual clothing.
  • Say My Name:
    • "SCOOOOOOOOOOT!!!"
    • "MAAAAAAAAAL!!!"
  • Shipper on Deck: She knows that Mike has a crush on Zoey, and fears that she would hate him permanently.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: She seemed much more cold and hostile towards Scott, not even caring about his well-being nor his refusal of doing the challenge because of his fear of Fang, in "Heroes vs Villains". Justified since she's still mad at him for all of his actions back in Revenge of the Island and states that she can't still forgive him for that.
  • Trauma Conga Line: First she witnesses two college students making out, then her older sister Mikoto falls sick when she was younger, then her health worsens when she leaves her behind to hang out with Megumi, then she witnesses Mike (as Vito) and Anne Maria making out, then, then Dawn and later Richard get eliminated, then she gets eliminated, to make things worse, she dreams of foreshadows involving Mal, who eventually awakens when Scott accidentally hits Mike (as Manitoba Smith) in the head with a shovel, which she tried (and failed) to prevent from happening, then she becomes traumatized by Jo showing her her "worst nightmare", something Mal said in her nightmare, then she witnesses some of her teammates being attacked because of him, and Shana almost being killed by him (fortunately Kotone managed to save her), then Shana gets eliminated thanks to him, then Mal takes over Mike, then gets curb-stomped by him, then Mal takes over Mike again after briefly gaining control again, then she loses two allies, Shane gets eliminated by Mal, while Duncan gets arrested, then Mal breaks her by talking her down, then Cameron gets injured and he and Richard leave the competition, then she loses her two remaining allies, Alejandro and Megumi, and finally her gifts from her friends get destroyed by Mal, causing her to become Shinobi Kotone to get revenge on him for what he did, only to return to her previous self at the end of the challenge, she then gets eliminated, not before trying to warn everyone else about him.
  • True Blue Femininity: Her hairclip, her school uniform and her two alternate outfits are all blue.
  • Tsundere: Type B. She is normally a calm, mature, kind and gentle girl, who likes helping others; however, she can get aloof and angry, when Scott is working on his plans, or when Mike becomes Vito and flirts with Anne Maria instead with Zoey, who is Mike's true love or when seeing Daichi Yamazuki.
  • Unlimited Wardrobe: Like Lindsay and Megumi, she's worn more outfits than any other contestant in the franchise.
  • Why Did It Have To Be Slugs?: As mentionted in "Finders Creepers", she's afraid of slugs. She also freaks out when a slug crawled on her arm while eating pancakes in the eating challange in "Food Fright".

"I can be agile and graceful, but also tough and scrappy, with the keen sense of a wilderness survivor, I'm ready to win this season! I don't care what my doctor says! Um, d-did I say doctor? I meant psychiatrist! AH, no! I mean, oh, do over!"

Voiced by: Cory Doran

Teams: Mutant Maggots, Heroic Hamsters, Team Hope

Mike is one messed-up teen who has, you guessed it, multiple personality disorder that comes up at random every time.


  • All Your Powers Combined: His good personalities perform a Heroic Sacrifice to defeat Mal once and for all in the All-Stars finale, and he gains access to all their abilities in the process.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Though as Vito he refers to his "tanned body", meaning he might be a deeply tanned Caucasian, like Katie.
  • Amnesiacs are Innocent: He has no memory of whatever he does, good or bad, when one of his personalities is in control.
  • Anime Hair: It's almost as long as his head.
  • Barrier Warrior: He projected a shield to knock Mal out before the latter faded away from existence.
  • Battle in the Center of the Mind: He wages one against his other personalities in "Grand Chef Auto". And wins.
  • Berserk Button: Don't even think about hurting Zoey when he's around.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Even a nice guy like Mike has his limits, especially if Zoey or Selene, or both are involved.
  • Big Brother Instinct: To Selene
  • Blackmail: Falls victim to it, courtesy of Scott. Scott forces Mike to help him in "Grand Chef Auto" after learning about Mike's disorder, threatening to tell Zoey if he doesn't.
  • Character Tic: Taking a deep breath and Bulging out his eyes as one of his personalities take control.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Each of his personalities end up being useful in some fashion somewhere down the line, even his most seemingly detrimental ones.
  • Hair Color Dissonance: His hair is usually black, but it has brownish tints. Lampshaded by Robbie.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: His relationship with Zoey.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Whenever one of his personalities take over, he cannot remember what happened during that time.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Implied. His shirt is repeatedly torn apart to manifest Vito, yet Mike always has an identical spare to replace it with.
  • My Sister Is Off-Limits!: In one episode when Brick says he has a crush on Artemis, Mike got all eye twitchy and overprotective mode.
  • Nice Hat: When he dons a fedora in "A Mine is a Terrible Thing to Waste", it reveals his fifth personality, the adventurous Manitoba Smith.
  • Noodle People: Mike has incredibly thin limbs, but he does have a set of abs. Vito, Manitoba, and Mal show that he is actually really strong.
  • Race Lift: He was pale and blonde in his prototype design, but was later changed (see above).
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Mike's regular self is The Blue Oni to his alternate personalities' Red Oni, with the possible exception of Chester, who's on both sides of the fence.

  • Soul Jar: Mike keeps his personalities in a talisman that Skullgal originally used to disguise herself as Erin during All-Stars.

    • Joisey: Vito. Appears whenever Mike's chest is bare, even partially.
    • Token Evil Teammate: Mal, Mike's hidden sixth personality. Triggered after Scott got frightened by bees and accidentally hits Mike in the back of the head with his shovel. Renders all of his other personalities useless.
  • Split-Personality Makeover: Whenever he changes into one of his personalities, his appearance also changes.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: He's essentially Cody, only taller and with multiple personalities to boot. Like Cody, Mike is shown to be very awkward, nice, and his main character drive is pursuing a girl rather than winning the competition. The two also happen to have gaps in their teeth.
  • Took a Level in Badass: During his journey inside his own mind, going from a rather meek Nice Guy, to a guy who's still really nice, but also willingly stands up to a horrible sociopath. Comes to a head in the finale, where he not only easily dismisses Mal, but gains all of his other personalities abilities and wins the million dollars.

    Mike's Alternate Personalities 

Chester, the Grumpy Old Man

  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: In "You Regatta be Kidding Me" he's seen selling skateboards - a fitting punishment, given his hatred of young people and new things.

  • The Load: Out of all the personalities, Chester is the least useful in the face of a challenge or emergency.
  • Motor Mouth: Justified, given his frail exterior that's all he'd got left.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Being a personification of Mike's inner-frustration, Chester's default expression is a grumpy scowl.
  • The Smart Guy: His common sense is his main (and only) draw. As a result, he comes off mostly as a complainer.

Svetlana, the Olympic Gymnast from Russia

  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: In "The Obsta-Kill Course" she's seen carving butter to make fish, she even says she has to or else she'd "cease to exist".
  • The Chick/The Heart: Easily the kindest member of the group, to the extent that when the personalities begin arguing over who deserved to be main host, she votes for Mike instead of herself.
  • Crossdressing Voices: Mike's VA admits that it's not everyday that he gets to do the voice of a female Russian Olympic Gymnast.
  • Fake Russian: In an In-Universe and particularly odd example, Svetlana believes she's from Russia even though Mike is Canadian.
  • Funny Foreigner: Supposed to be Russian.

  • Heroic Sacrifice: Willingly surrenders her existence so that Mike can defeat Mal.

  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: Vito is chained to a boulder by Mal and forced to put on a puppet show routine with a Mal dummy, however he doesn't seem to have any problem with it.

    Vito: Where's the freakin' sun? How's a guy supposed to get a freakin' tan out here?
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: His hairstyle gels back when in control.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Willingly surrenders his existence so that Mike can defeat Mal.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: In spite of all the trouble he's caused for Mike and Zoey, he's still pretty good-hearted, and even willingly accompanies Mike on his journey to Mal's tower. He also has a soft spot for Hime, whose feelings were hurt by Anne Maria's insults.
  • Leitmotif: A rendition of Bad to the Bone which is also used for Duncan.
  • Verbal Tic: "Eh Yo!" at the start of each sentence.

Manitoba Smith, the Awesome Aussie Adventurer Archaeologist

  • The Hat Makes the Man: A fairly literal example, as he's easily invoked so long as he has access to a slouch hat.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Willingly surrenders his existence so that Mike can defeat Mal.
  • The Lancer: He is the most resourceful of all the personalities, and acts as Mike's Number Two. Everyone looks to him for leadership in Mike's absence, with him taking charge of the team on several occasions. He is also the only personality who is willing to challenge Mike's leadership in All-Stars (although he later complies), as well as the only one to see through Mal's illusion.
  • Number Two: If the personalities had to have one, he'd be Mike's number two, being the most authoritative while also the most controllable.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to both Mike and Chester's blue Oni.

    Owen 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screamingGopher_owen.jpg
The Party Guy
"This is awesome! WOOOHOOO!!"

Voiced by: Scott McCord

Teams: Screaming Gophers, Killer Grips, Team Chris is Really, Really, Really, Really Hot, Team Hope

Owen's one big lovable tub of fun. He may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he has more pure optimism than an arena full of Maple Leafs fans during the playoffs.

Being the youngest of three boys really takes the pressure off of Owen having to do anything with his life. And since he's 'the baby' of the family, his parent let him do whatever he wants - which isn't usually much. Unless scratching yourself and eating things that make crunchy sounds count. In that case, Owen's an over-achiever.

If there's one thing that Owen likes more than anything else, it's his own smells and sounds. He really gets fired up about the things that come out of his own body. (Let's just say it's safest to keep him away from open flames after a bean chilli cookout.)

As a child, he once shoved his head into a fish bowl just to see if it would fit and got stuck. He had go the hospital to have it removed. (He did it again last week to see if the same thing would happen. It did.)

Regardless of the his faults (and there are many) Owen's got a lot of heart. He doesn't care who you are, if you like to party then he'll be your best bud. Owen's friends know him as "The-guy-who-will-do-anything-on-a-dare-especially-if-his-reward-is-all-you-can-eat-pancakes". This comes in handy for anyone who needs their dirty work done for them, because Owen doesn't mind getting dirty. In fact, he's proud to say he has a brown belt in Judo. (It's actually yellow, but he spilled some gravy on it.)

Owen auditioned for Total Drama Island because summer camp is just about the funnest place in the whole wide world - there's babes in bikinis, free food three time a day and your farts can echo right across the lake! Awesome!

  • Acrofatic: Usually played straight, but sometimes averted as per Rule of Funny. For example, he was out of breath before trying to run away from the monster in the premiere of Action, and it took him ten-and-a-half hours to run three city blocks.
  • All-Loving Hero: There is not a single character that he has directly come to blows with except Heather, who he finds scary.
  • Ambiguously Bi: He's attracted to Izzy but also seems to have a crush on Justin, often mentioning how attractive he is and even expressing a desire to kiss him at one point.
  • Animals Hate Him: Inexplicably, if Owen encounters an animal—any animal—it will almost certainly maul him.
  • Art Shift: Whenever he tells a story, and during his musical number in "Jamaica Me Sweat".
  • Back for the Finale: Though he does not compete, Owen makes an appearance in the All-Stars season finale, his farts fully loaded.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: In "Jamaica Me Sweat" he states his intentions to break up with Izzy, one plane to the head and one jolt of hyper-intellegence later, Izzy is airlifted away by the army and she breaks up with him; in the episode's song, Owen sings about how much he misses Izzy and regrets this outcome. It's sadder than it sounds.
  • Berserk Button:
  • Big Eater: He inhales food like air, and always wants seconds, maybe even fifths.
  • The Big Guy: Owen clearly has girth to spare, but his size also provides him with surprisingly impressive strength.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "You gonna finish that?"
    • "Awesome!"
    • "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIEEEE!!!!!" whenever it looks like the plane is going to crash.
  • Companion Cube: Probably in a reference to Wilson from Cast Away, he creates one out of a coconut after being separated from the other campers during a flood. The coconut gets voted off at the end of the episode.
  • Classical Anti-Hero: Your typical loser who desperately tries and fails to be awesome. Always Played for Laughs.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: His thought process is very unusual, often performing spontaneous, bizarre antics like getting naked and dancing.
  • Cool Loser: Inverted. He is popular in universe despite having some pretty heavy loser traits.
  • Did I Just Say That Out Loud?: Happens frequently, and at the most inconvenient times.
  • Dirty Coward: When he and Izzy were confronted by the psycho killer (actually Chef in disguise) in "Hook, Line, and Screamer", Owen threw Izzy at him and then fled.
  • The Ditz: He's a few sandwiches short of a picnic most of the time.
  • Dumb Blonde/Fat Idiot: Owen is perfectly capable of rational thinking, but he is also very... simple.
  • Dumb Is Good: He is simultaneously one of the nicest and dumbest boys on the show.
  • Easily Forgiven: After Owen's elimination in Action, no one appears to be mad about him helping Chris sabotage the contestants, nor is it ever mentioned again. Not even by Harold who was directly eliminated because of his meddling.
  • Enfant Terrible: His rapid-fire confessions in "TDA Aftermath III" reveal that he was quite a troublemaker in his younger years.
  • Expy:
  • Extreme Omnivore: He'll eat anything, dead or organic. He'll also eat anything that remotely LOOKS like food, which ends up giving him some extreme constipation after he ate an entire buffet made out of sawdust, plastic, and foam-core.
  • Follow Your Nose: His sense of smell is very sharp, but only when detecting food.
  • Lovable Coward: He gets frightened often and is easily intimidated, though it is usually depicted in a humorous light. Usually.
  • The Mole: When he's brought back in season two, he's supposed to give the rest of the cast Conflict Balls in exchange for the money to pay off debts from his mom buying a cheese cellar.

    Sam 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ROTI_Sam_7332.jpg
The Nice-guy Gamer

"This is the longest I've ever been without playing video games. My fingers feel empty."

Voiced by: Brian Froud

Teams: Toxic Rats, Heroic Hamsters, Team Hope

Sam is your average gamer.


  • Cheaters Never Prosper: 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.
  • Elimination By Irony: By "Runaway Model", all of Sam's handheld have been confiscated, and he starts hallucinating everything in "gaming" graphics, including the scaffold he needs to climb to rescue Lindsay from Sasquatchinawkwa. He makes it past the rolling barrels and such, but then Reality Ensues with Sasquatchinawkwa tossing him off and he ultimately loses the challenge for the Rats and is voted off. Brick unintentionally lampshades this after Sam is thrown off the scaffold: "Game Over.".
  • Elimination in the Limelight: Both episodes where he shows his Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass traits ("Runaway Model" and "Food Fright") end with his departure.
  • Expy: To Seth Rogen, voice and appearance-wise.
  • Freaky Is Cool:
    • His reaction to the mutant squirrel in the first episode.
    • Also, this is how he sees Dakota after her mutation. 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 misfortune, the island's been decontaminated.
  • Gasshole: His farts are strong enough to knock Gwen out as seen in "The Treasure Island of Dr. McLean".
  • Geek Physique: In contrast to fellow geeks Harold and Cody, Sam represents the fat geek.
  • Give Geeks a Chance: 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.
  • Going Cold Turkey: He can slip into crippling withdrawals if he's kept from gaming.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Wanted to become Dakota's, but she was eliminated before he got the chance. However, she came back as an intern, and they've hooked up by the time he is eliminated.
  • Human Popsicle: Temporarily becomes one in "Ice Ice Baby".
  • Iconic Item: His video game handheld.
  • I Know Mortal Kombat: 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.
  • The Load: 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 Geek Physique and his incredibly bad luck.
  • A Rare Sentence: "Well no one else was going to pee on me...heheh, that is a weird sentence!"
  • Super Reflexes: He claims 10 years of video gaming gave him this. He demonstrates it by grabbing a piece of cheese from a Mouse Trap without setting it off; however, he unwittingly set off about a dozen additional traps when he stepped on the trap he just undone, claiming that his gaming withdrawal is throwing him off balance.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute:
    • 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.
    • As many fans have pointed out; in All-Stars he seems to be a replacement for Owen, possessing all of Owen's characteristics; big and fat, speed eating, extremely nice. However he doesn't quite keep up to Owen's standards (especially in "Food Fright" where he speed eats like Owen but leaves pieces uneaten), which led fans to state the episode would've made a lot more sense with Owen in it.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: With Dakota, after she transforms.

  • The Lancer: To Selene, since she's tougher, stronger and and more brash and abrassive than her.

The Indie Chick

"Wow, I can't believe I'm in the Total Drama confessional, it's so exciting. Everyone seems so nice. I hope they all like me, I could use a few more friends, or friends period. Oh, what if they hate me? Maybe this flower is too big. Am I trying to hard? You like me, right?"

Voiced by: Barbara Mamabolo

Teams: Mutant Maggots, Heroic Hamsters, Team Hope

Zoey is a nice girl who wants to be friends with everyone, since she has none back home.


  • Action Girl: Early on, she is more of a Damsel in Distress; however, she becomes a full-on Action Girl after Mike is eliminated.
  • Action Survivor: She becomes almost a parody of one in "Eat, Puke, and Be Wary". While the crazy survivalist personality eventually fades, the skills that she suddenly obtained do not.
