    Amy, The Evil Cheerleader Twin 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/what_are_you_doing.png

"I just saw Samey's pathetic audition tape for Total Drama, so I decided to submit my own. Cuz oh my gag, who'd pick her over me?! I was born first, and Samey has been coming in last ever since! My bags are already packed, so send the limo."

Voiced by: Bryn McAuley

Teams: Pimâpotew Kinosewak (Floating Salmon)


  • Alpha Bitch: Complete with cheerleader status.
  • Arc Villain: While she isn't the Big Bad, she still served as the season's primary drama starter for the first few episodes, before quickly being replaced due to her early elimination.
  • Attention Whore: She constantly upstages Samey, and she often takes the credit for Samey's hard work. Also, when Samey tries to stand up for herself, Amy has the audacity to call her an "attention hog".
  • Back for the Dead: She returns just long enough to get Samey eliminated.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Thanks to her cheerleader outfit.
  • Beauty, Brains and Brawn:
    • She paraphrases the trope, claiming that she is the beauty and the brains, and Samey is the doer of stuff that stinks.
    • Sticking with the trope's intended definition, Amy and Samey would be the Beauties, Scarlett the Brains, and Jasmine the Brawn for Team Kinosewak.
  • Beauty Mark: The mole under Amy's right eye, which serves as an Identical Twin ID Tag between her and Samey. Samey even applies one on her own cheek while posing as Amy.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Anyone complementing Samey or taking Samey's side.
    • Confusing her for Samey. She goes off on a short rant about it after it is revealed that Samey impersonated her.
    • Calling her fat. When Samey calls Amy a "bossy blonde cow", the twins get into a straight up Cat Fight.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: She has all the makings of an antagonist, and takes after the personality of previous Big Bads like Heather and Courtney, but she didn't last long enough to make a significant impact.
  • Big Sister Bully: She's 17 minutes older than Samey, according to a confessional in "I Love You, Grease Pig" and always acts this way towards Samey.
    Jasmine: Well, good thing for Samey they weren't born Siamese twins, or I'd reckon Amy would have eaten her by now!
  • Bitch Alert: Her audition video and how she treats Samey in "So, Uh, This is My Team?" firmly establishes her as a bitch, more so than Heather.
  • Blah Blah Blah: She does this while mocking Samey.
    Amy: Way to make a total fool of yourself in front of everybody, Samey! (mocking Samey) "Oh, I got the food, and I'm the nice one! Blah blah blah!"
  • Book Dumb: When she claims that she is a parfait, she states that it's German for "perfect" when it's actually French.
  • Bully and Wimp Pairing: A rare female example, she is the Bully to Samey's Wimp.
  • Cain and Abel: In "So, Uh, This is My Team?", Amy tries to invoke the trope with her as Cain and Samey as Abel when she kicks her sister away as they were freefalling; however, the trope is subverted when Samey had an actual parachute.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Her title is "The Evil Twin".
  • Cat Fight: She gets involved in one with Samey twice in "A Blast from the Past."
  • Crocodile Tears: She pretends to be insulted by Samey in order to gain sympathy from her teammates and to make them distrust Samey.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Amy and Samey's conflict is focused on heavily during "Twinning Isn't Everything", in which the latter eliminates the former.
  • Determinator: Swam all the way back to the island after being eliminated just so she could get revenge on Samey.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: She makes absolutely ZERO effort to hide her cruel nature, yet she's Little Miss Perfect in nearly everybody's eyes except Jasmine. This is especially true during her Wounded Gazelle Gambit when Rodney has the nerve to label Samey as the bully when she tries to call her sister out in front of her team.
  • Dirty Coward: She uses Samey as a Human Shield when Chef fired tennis balls at them.
  • Domestic Abuse: Constantly abuses Samey both physically and emotionally in plain sight, yet everybody (except Jasmine) views her as a perfect angel. She also twists around Samey's words when she calls her out to make it look like Samey is the bully and paint herself as the victim (a common tactic that real-life abusers use).
  • The Dividual: With Samey. Though it's downplayed in that they do not get along.
  • Dumb Blonde: Downplayed; she's Book Dumb but Street Smart, knowing how to manipulate people, especially Samey.
  • Enfant Terrible: Amy has practically bullied Samey since birth.
  • Entitled Bitch: As the elder sister, she expects Samey to do her every whim.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: When Jasmine defends Samey during an argument, Amy wonders why would anyone stick up for her twin, as Amy thinks Samey as nothing but a "Spare Amy."
  • Evil Laugh: She gives one off when she thinks Samey's going home. However, little did Amy know, Samey had set her up for a fall.
  • Evil Twin: Her label.
  • Expy: Of Trina Riffin, from her mean personality to the language she uses when talks, as well as both of them bearing huge hatred for a younger sibling, and have attempted to murder them before. Furthermore both forced their "slave" to change their name so that it would rhyme with theirs. In fact, it's quite likely Bryn McAuley used her as a model.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: Somewhat lampshaded by Rodney when he said she had "the voice of an angel".
  • The Fake Cutie: Tries to make herself look like a perfect angel to the rest of her teammates, but in actually she's little more than an abusive, bullying jerkass.
  • Flat Character: Many accuse her of only existing for the sole purpose of being a springboard for Samey's Character Development.
  • The Glorious War of Sisterly Rivalry: Reaches its climax in "A Blast from the Past" when Samey becomes more willing to fight back.
  • Hate Sink: Amy is written with zero redeeming factors. She is a Big Sister Bully who has tormented Samey her entire life. She treats her like a slave, constantly puts her down, and seems to get a kick out of making Samey feel miserable. She's an Alpha Bitch much like Heather, but lacks any of the strategic smarts that made Heather so loved. She ultimately serves no real purpose other than to springboard Samey's Character Development and is eliminated after 3 episodes.
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: Her bullying Samey is what leads to her downfall.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: Even though they're teal.
  • Jerkass: She treats her sister with absolutely NO respect, and it's not reserved just for Samey. She extends this cruelty towards almost everyone else, particularly Rodney and Jasmine.
  • Kick the Dog: To Samey far too often. She even literally kicks her sister, hoping she will plummet to her death in the first episode. Eventually, The Dog Bites Back.
    (As Amy and Samey are free-falling, with the latter holding on to the former's leg)
    Amy: (after she pulls her ripcord and gets a parachute) Ohhh! I'll miss you, sis! Not much! But... (laughs) ...probably not at all. LATER!!! (Amy kicks Samey away)
    Samey: (pulls her ripcord and gets a chute) Yes!!
    Amy: Ugh! Fine! You can live!
  • Lady in Red: Wears a red cheerleader outfit.
  • The Lancer: On Team Kinosewak, as she is the most authoritative person after team leader Jasmine, and has a personality that's the polar opposite of hers. On top of that they constantly clash due to their contrasting views about Samey.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Gets hit with it hard, courtesy of Samey.
  • Lean and Mean: She has a petite frame and a nasty attitude.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: The Dark to Samey's Light.
  • The Load: Amy is pretty much useless to her team as she forces Samey to do all her dirty work.
  • Malicious Misnaming:
    • First, she calls her sister Samey, then comes up with a new, even more disparaging name in the confessional, "Spareamy".
    • She calls Rodney "Mumbles".
  • Manipulative Bitch: She manages to get her team to turn on Samey.
  • Never My Fault: She always pins the blame on Samey for her mistakes.
    Amy: (after Team Kinosewak loses their first challenge) UGH! Way to go, Samey! You ruined everything!
  • Out-Gambitted: By Samey.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Amy is cruel, snarky, and selfish; a stark contrast to her kind-hearted, bubbly, and generous sister.
  • Pretty Freeloader: However, instead of leeching off a man, Amy leeches off Samey.
  • Pride: She believes that she is above her sister (and almost everyone else). This eventually becomes her Fatal Flaw.
  • Psychopathic Woman Child: Despite being elder to Samey by 17 minutes, Amy is, in many ways, comparable to a stereotypical toddler. Two notable demonstrations of this trait are always blaming Samey for her own faults and stealing whatever Samey has. When Team Kinosewak suffers its first loss, Amy tattles on Samey like a kindergartner.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red To Samey's Blue.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Leads to her own, and later Samey's, downfall.
  • Satellite Character: She has virtually no characterization outside of being mean to Samey or putting her down. The very reason she came onto the show in the first place was so she wouldn't allow Samey any chance to be free from her.
  • Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: She does this after Jasmine congratulates Samey for taking out Dave in "Twinning Isn't Everything".
    Amy: Whoa! Loud Cough of Interruption! (pushes Samey down) I was the one who took Dave out, not Samey!
  • She's Got Legs: Her cheerleader outfit puts much evidence in her legs.
  • Skewed Priorities: She is more concerned with one-upping Samey than she is with helping her team. This is what ultimately leads to her downfall.
  • Sibling Seniority Squabble: She was born 17 minutes before Samey, and believes that gives her power over her sister.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: She is very arrogant, and Samey eventually uses this against her.
  • Smug Snake: Samey is not the only one she treats like trash, and extends this courtesy to others on her team like Rodney and Jasmine.
  • The Sociopath: She shows many signs of being a sociopath. Uncaring? That really goes without saying, in fact it's to the extent that she was willing to have her own sister plummet to her death.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute:
    • She is essentially a younger version of Blaineley, in terms of her vain personality and physical appearance.
    • Her relationship with Samey is also comparable to Heather's relationship with Lindsay, the main difference being that the wimp is fully aware of the bully's true nature throughout, as opposed to finding out much later.
  • Theme Twin Naming: Amy and Samey.
  • The Unintelligible: After she eats a poisonous manchineel fruit. Samey exploits this to eliminate Amy in her place.
  • Valley Girl: "Oh my gag!"

    Jasmine, The Outback Survivalist 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jasmine_confesssional.png

"Australia is home to eleven of the world's deadliest creatures. Oh, and our toilets do not flush backwards. I think that's about all you need to know about where I'm from."

Voiced by: Katie Bergin

Teams: Pimâpotew Kinosewak (Floating Salmon)


  • Aborted Arc: Her friendship with Samey gets dropped altogether once she's eliminated in "A Blast to the Past" almost to the point where it feels like it never even happened.
  • Action Duo: With Shawn, especially in "Scarlett Fever".
  • Action Girl: Given her Outback survival skills.
  • All Amazons Want Hercules: Played with; while she's much stronger and taller than her crush, Shawn, she's deeply impressed by his survivalist skills and fighting ability.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Chris literally refers to her as an "Amazon" a few times.
  • Awesome Aussie: A rare female example, but she's basically a great big tribute to this trope, as she's a wilderness survivor from Australia.
  • Back for the Finale: She returns as Shawn's helper in the final challenge.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Quite possibly due to her not being able to find clothes long enough to cover her completely.
  • Battle Couple: With Shawn in episode 10.
  • The Beastmaster: She displays a hypnotic control over the grease pig.
  • Berserk Button: It's implied that she doesn't like people making comments about her height, such as when she asked Amy if they were going to have a problem when the latter called her a giant.
  • The Big Girl: Though she doubles as The Leader.
  • Big "NO!": She is prone to doing this.
    • She gives one as Samey was about to bite into a poisonous manchineel fruit in "I Love You, Grease Pig!".
    • In "Twinning Isn't Everything", she gives it as the balloon she, Samey, and Amy were fighting over bursts.
    • In "Mo Monkey, Mo Problems", she gives yet another one when she sees a tree full of monkeys, with any one of them holding her team's gold coin.
  • Broken Bird: Following Shawn's actions in "A Blast from the Past".
  • Cassandra Truth: She is the first one to notice that something is off about the island, and is usually the one to notice when a landmark has suddenly appeared or disappeared. However, for several episodes, no one else notices (except Shawn once and later Scarlett) or they dismiss it when she brings it up.
  • Cats Are Mean: During her audition, Jasmine's cat, Whiskers, jumps on her upper arm and bites it for no apparent reason. Jasmine simply shrugs it off and finishes the audition. Later on, in "Sky Fall", Whiskers brutally attacks the camera when Jasmine tries to giver her a bath. The end results are quite predictable.
  • Claustrophobia: Has a crippling fear of small, enclosed spaces, likely attributed to her tall stature.
  • Cool Big Sis: Acts as one to Samey, encouraging her to act tough and to stand up against her real sister Amy, who contrasts Jasmine by being a Big Sister Bully. She also helps Samey masquerade as Amy, telling her how to act like Amy and covering up for her in "I Love You, I Love You Knots".
  • Curse Cut Short: In "Three Zones and a Baby".
    Jasmine: (to Topher, after he causes an avalanche) I'm going to rip you a new- (a pile of snow falls on Team Kinosewak)
  • Expy: Confrimed by Fresh TV to be one of MacGyver and Bindi Irwin.
  • Friendless Background: She explains it's due to people being intimidated about her size.
  • Genius Bruiser: The season's strongest and toughest contestant is also an expert survivalist with botanist knowledge.
  • Gentle Giant: One of the absolute tallest characters in the series, but ultimately a kind-hearted person overall.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: She is the tallest character in Total Drama history (other than mutated Dakota) and towers over all the characters, even Chef Hatchet.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Or in this case, giving Max a Wedgie when he insults her.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: Unfortunately, Whiskers doesn't return the love.
  • The Leader: Of Team Kinosewak, as she pulls her team to victory for the first two episodes.
  • Nice Hat: Her slouch hat.
  • Official Couple: Becomes one with Shawn after the merge.
  • One Head Taller: Gender inverted with Shawn.
  • One Steve Limit: She shares her name with Leshawna's friend, Jasmin, a minor character appearing in a video short for Island.
  • Secret Keeper: She knows that Samey set Amy up for a fall, and helps Samey pose as Amy.
  • She's Got Legs: Sweet mercy, does she ever!
  • Ship Tease: With Shawn. Although (for a while) Jasmine is angered at his 'betrayal' when she threw a challenge for him, they eventually make up and end up as an Official Couple.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Her friendship with Samey is focused on a good bit pre-merge, along with her Ship Tease with Shawn which is focused on throughout the season.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Except for Rodney and Chef Hatchet, she towers over most of the Pahkitew Island cast. However, she's rather insecure about her imposing figure.
  • Super Strength: She breaks a tree with a single punch, and lifts one up later on.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: She is in every aspect a Distaff Counterpart of Manitoba Smith, even down to the fact they're Awesome Aussie Action Heroes.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: With Shawn.
  • Token Good Teammate: Once Samey is gone, she's all that's left on a team of villains (and Topher).
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Wears a ponytail.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: An outdoor survivalist who wants to open a flower shop/cage-fighting school.
  • Tsurime Eyes: Fitting as she's practically a natural born leader.
  • Vocal Evolution: In the start of the season her voice is noticeably deeper than in her audition video. However later on it becomes higher once more (especially when she's scared or excited) and begins to resemble her audition voice more closely.
  • With Us or Against Us: Jasmine tells Sky this in "Three Zones and A Baby" in regards to which team she's loyal to.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: Probably made to look even shorter due to her height.
  • Younger than She Looks: Contrary to what her height suggests, she's a teenager.

    Max, The Super-Villain 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nothing_to_fear.png

"I feel being a contestant on Total Drama would be a great step in TAKING OVER THE WORLD! BUAHAHAHA! And also meeting people, I don’t get out much. I should warn you, I am evil. I know right now you’re probably saying: 'We’ve had plenty of evil on our show.' To that, I say NAY. You have never seen evil like me. I am beyond evil, we need a new word for the evil that I am. I've been working on that, but with my French horn lessons and the baby sitting, there's just no time."

Voiced by: Bruce Dow

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


  • Achilles' Heel: He is prone to Evil Gloating, which often gets him in trouble.
  • Adorkable: He has his moments, especially when he fails at being evil.
  • Ambiguously Human: When comparing his appearance alongside that of other characters, it's sometimes hard not to cast some doubt over his species.
  • Animals Hate Him: He is attacked by animals a lot.
  • Annoying Laugh: His constant attempts to perfect his Evil Laugh makes it as such.
  • Attention Whore: His desire to be a super-villain is certainly some kind of cry for attention.
  • The Beast Master: It seems this way when his helmet turns a grease pig evil, but this is subverted when it betrays him.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: His entire gimmick is acting like a blatantly obvious super-villain, but instead, he comes off as Laughably Evil.
  • Bungling Inventor: He has created an assortment of evil inventions during his time on the show, but they scarcely ever work and mostly backfire on him. If they do happen to work, it's usually because Scarlett has tweaked them.
  • Butt-Monkey: Nobody really cares for him, and he's usually on the receiving end of nearly all jokes.
  • Can't Get Away with Nuthin': Almost every time he acts evil, it bites him in the butt.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: His title is "The Super-Villain", plus he never stops reminding everyone of how "evil" he is.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "Time to EVIL!", which he literally states as such.
    • "REVENGE!!!", when he feels that he has been wronged.
  • Cheaters Never Prosper: He's extremely unsuccessful for a cheater in Total Drama.
  • The Chew Toy: More often than not, he brings his pain upon himself.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: While he usually sucks at being evil there are moments when he is genuinely competent, for example when he shocks Ella in episode 5 with help from Scarlett.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Happens to him when he's around babies.
  • The Dragon: To Scarlett, though he doesn't know it.
  • Establishing Character Moment: The speech he gives in his audition video gives a very clear indication of what he's like.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Is surprisingly good with babies and has a soft spot for them.
  • Even Evil Has Standards:
    • He tells Samey that her jealousy towards Amy is the lowest form of evil.
    • Apparently, threatening to kill people is going too far for him. After Scarlett reveals her true self, he is seen in the confessional, sucking his thumb out of fear.
  • Evil Genius: He fancies himself as such, but he is not that bright.
  • Evil Gloating: He often boasts about his evil accomplishments.
  • Evil Is Hammy: By far the hammiest villain to ever appear on the show.
  • Evil Is Petty: A lot of his evil schemes are rather childish, such as in "I Love You, Grease Pig", he takes great enjoyment in flinging grease onto Dave.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Or so he thinks. He comes to realize this couldn't be less true, once Scarlett reveals herself.
  • Expy: Of Dr. Evil. He has a near identical outfit, as well as the fact he's an incompetent villain who relies on a Hyper-Competent Sidekick. In addition, both have been seen chewing their fingers as a Character Tic.
  • Fan Disservice: His pants drop in front of Scarlett.
  • Flat Character: His entire schtick is trying to convince everyone how evil he is.
  • Foil: To Mike's evil persona, Mal. Both seem to love committing petty crimes, have only one letter separating their names, are Card Carrying Villains who take pride in their evil, and unlike most villains they are more interested in being bad for the sake of it than the money, but whereas Mal was played as a serious threat without a shred of humanity in him, Max is largely played as a joke who can't accomplish one successful scheme without Scarlett's help and has a redeeming feature in that he loves babies.
  • For the Evulz: Is evil just for the sake of it.
  • Friendless Background: Acting like a super-villain certainly doesn't win friends over.
  • Friend to All Children: He babysits and is extremely sweet to the babies in "Three Zones and a Baby".
  • Fun Size: He is the shortest contestant of the third generation, and the shortest male overall, with the possible exception of Cameron.
  • Genius Ditz: While he does have some legitimate moments of intelligence, such as coming up with evil gadgets (most of the things he invented worked, for one thing, even if they would go awry), he also has a severe lack of common sense and foresight that often puts his life on the line.
  • Gonk: The writers have outdone themselves to make him as ugly as possible: An oversized head, grey skin, purple hair, a pig nose, and multiple chins.
  • Hair Color Dissonance: Max has purple hair as part of his Gonk design.
  • Harmless Villain: Tries hard to be evil, but fails epically at it. Though there are moments where he is genuinely good at being bad (even if most of them are Scarlett's ideas). Lampshaded by Shawn in "Twinning Isn't Everything", where he praises Max's strategy in popping the opposing team's balloons, but reasons he isn't clever enough to have thought of it (and he's right to think that).
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: At Scarlett's elimination, Max gloats about how he is now the only villain remaining, which causes him to get eliminated alongside her.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: According to his audition tape, part of the reason he signed up for Total Drama was so that he could meet people.
  • Iron Butt Monkey: Pahkitew Island's designated pain magnet.
  • Jerkass: Naturally, given that he is a wannabe super-villain.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While he claims to be evil, he does have a soft spot for babies.
  • Kick the Dog: He electrocutes sweet, innocent Ella using an electric eel and enjoys it. Even if it was Scarlett's idea.
  • Large Ham: His brand of "villainy" is certainly not subtle.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: The evil schemes he conjures up without Scarlett's help often backfire on him.
  • Laughably Evil: He is one of the few villains whose sole purpose is for comic relief.
  • Lesser of Two Evils: Contrary to what he believes, he is most certainly not the Big Bad.
  • The Load: Played with, but usually played straight.
    • He is more concerned with causing evil than actually helping his team. Sometimes it helps his team (e.g., popping Sky's balloon with a blow dart, electrocuting Ella); other times, it doesn't (e.g. capturing his own team in a snare net).
    • Scarlett definitely views him as such, especially after he threw away her remote control device for the island's central computer system in "This is the Pits".
    • In "Scarlett Fever", his plan for stopping Scarlett was for someone else to come up with a plan.
  • Non-Gameplay Elimination: When Scarlett is booted off the island after attempting to blow up the other campers in "Scarlett Fever", Chris elects to have Max kicked off too after he boasts about picking up where Scarlett left off, having had enough of "evil".
  • Non-Standard Character Design: His bizarre proportions and design really stand out when compared to the realistic human proportions every other contestant has.
  • The Not-Love Interest: He and Scarlett rarely have significant interaction with anyone but each other. A few characters seem to interpret them as a couple, and Max seems to think Scarlett could be attracted to him, but they firmly remain platonic friends/enemies.
  • Obviously Evil: Parodied. He may be an incompetent villain, but he has almost every villain cliché crossed off the list.
  • Only Friend: Scarlett. Or so he believes.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: He's the hammy and egotistical red to Scarlett's the cold and calculating blue. Until Scarlett reveals her true colors, anyway.
  • Sarcasm-Blind: He doesn't realize that Scarlett was being sarcastic about his evil genius until she reveals her true self.
  • Ship Tease: With Scarlett.
  • Simpleton Voice: Played with. He believes that he is an Evil Genius, although he's shown to not be very bright.
  • Skewed Priorities: He more interested in causing evil than he is helping his team.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: As far as his super-villainy is concerned.
  • Smart People Build Robots: He made one in the opening. Though it should be emphasized, he only thinks he's smart, and the quality of his robot reflects this statement.
  • Smug Snake: He is overconfident in his villainy skills, and it eventually leads to his demise.
  • Stupid Evil: A wannabe supervillain who is a complete moron.
  • Supervillain Lair:
    • In his Audition Video, what Max did to his bedroom, sure doesn't look child friendly.
    • In "So, This Is My Team?", he also scopes out a cave (which would later be used by Team Maskwak) to use a secret lair; however he changes his mind after encountering bats.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute:
  • Take Over the World: What he aspires to do.
  • Too Dumb to Live:
    • He makes the mistake of insulting Jasmine, someone more than twice his size. He ends up being hung from a branch from his underwear.
    • He decides it's a good idea to randomly guess combinations to a locked door after Chris tells him the door would shock him for inputting a wrong combination. He then re-enters a wrong combination he had already tried and got shocked for earlier. Scarlett allows him to keep entering combinations, concluding that either he will eventually enter the correct combination, or the lock system will short out after administering too many shocks.
      Max: Let's try "1-2-3" again. (the door shocks him, again)
      Scarlett: Keep going. I just KNOW you'll get it.
  • Un-Evil Laugh: Max's Evil Laugh is so ridiculous and stupid sounding it comes off as laughable rather than intimidating.
  • Villainous Friendship: With Scarlett. Type IV with Shades of Type I later on.
  • Villains Out Shopping: He hasn't had time to carry out his plans of global domination because he's busy with french horn lessons and baby sitting.
  • Vomit Indiscretion Shot: "Evil vomits!"
  • Wedgie: Falls victim to the Hanging Wedgie in "Mo Monkey Mo Problems", courtesy of Jasmine.
    Max: (as he hangs from a tree) Evil will not be slowed by a mere wedgie! (the elastic gives and Max falls to the ground)

    Rodney, The Country Boy 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/321_clucky.png

"I just want to say if you pick me, I'll be leaving behind my special lady Debbie. We haven't actually spoken yet, but the second we do I know it's gonna be love. Same goes for Rachel, Alicia, Tammy...Christine, Becky, Mary Lou, Mary Jane...then there's that girl from the store. I think it was a girl. It could've been a mannequin. But one thing's for sure, it's true love!"

Voiced by: Ian Ronningen

Teams: Pimâpotew Kinosewak (Floating Salmon)


  • All Love Is Unrequited: He falls in love with every girl he meets but is incapable of expressing his feelings properly, resulting in all his relationships being woefully one-sided.
  • The Big Guy: He is the second tallest and heaviest camper among the third generation, and largely there as Dumb Muscle.
  • Black Bead Eyes: He is one of a few non-bespectacled characters to have them.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: Rodney's three/four crushes are this: (Amy/Samey, Jasmine, Scarlett).
  • Born Unlucky: During the Truth or Scare challenge of "I Love You Knots" he's repeatedly asked questions about his many crushes and has to continually lie to avoid hurting the girls' feelings.
  • Buffy Speak: When he tries to profess his love for a girl, his words and phrases often come out as this.
  • Can't Spit It Out: His main gimmick, which applies to any girl he talks to, with the exception of Sugar.
  • Casanova Wannabe: He thinks every girl who so much as touches him or offers him food is automatically his, when in reality none of them know what he's talking about.
  • Flat Character: He has little personality outside of crushing on any girl he sees.
  • Farm Boy: Labeled the "Country Boy".
  • Fool for Love: A severe lack of female interaction at home makes him one.
  • Gentle Giant: Rodney is extremely muscular and is the biggest of the third generation. He is very shy, cute, and handsome.
  • Growling Gut: His stomach growls when he's hungry.
  • Hopeless Suitor: None of his crushes even know that he's fallen for them.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Every girl he crushes on except for Jasmine.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: Flaws aside, he really is a sweet-natured guy who despite his problem always tries to let the girls he thinks are in love with him down gently.
  • The Load: In the Truth or Scare challenge.
  • Love at First Sight: Exaggerated, his cheeks become a rosy pink and he falls in love with any girl that so much as makes eye-contact with him.
  • Love Makes You Dumb: Or maybe in his case, he loves because he's dumb. With him, it's kind of hard to tell.

  • Bald Woman: Averted on-screen; however, Samey mentions in a confessional that she let Amy shave her head in the past, with Amy claiming that it was for people to "tell them apart".
  • Bare Your Midriff: Thanks to her cheerleader outfit.
  • Batman Gambit: In the confessional, Samey recalls that when she has something that Amy wants, Amy will steal it from her. Samey uses this fact to trick Amy into eating a poisonous manchineel fruit. When Amy's throat becomes inflamed, Samey pulls a switch-a-roo, getting Amy blasted off the island.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: Jasmine calls her out on this, saying that Samey doesn't have to do everything Amy tells her. While Jasmine appreciates Samey's help in foraging for food, Jasmine wants it to be Samey's own choice and not because Amy told her to help.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Whenever Amy wrongfully takes credit for Samey's hard work.
    • Confusing her for Amy. This is especially true while Samey impersonates Amy.

  • Bond One-Liner: She gives one after Amy is shot out of the Cannon of Shame in "Twinning Isn't Everything", even doing it as a Title Drop.
  • Bully and Wimp Pairing: A rare female example, she is the Wimp to Amy's Bully; however, Samey eventually learns to stand up for herself.
  • Butt-Monkey: No thanks to Amy.
    Chris: I was worried about cruelty to animals during this challenge, but I'm fine with cruelty to Samey.

  • The Chew Toy: For Amy.

  • The Dog Bites Back: Samey finally has enough of all the abuse she takes, and has her revenge by making Amy eat a poisonous fruit and getting eliminated in her place.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: As if "Samey" wasn't a disparaging enough name, Amy manages to comes up with a new, even more embarrassing nickname: "Spareamy".
    Amy: (in the confessional) Okay, since when does anyone takes Samey's side? She's just a wannabe me, a "spare Amy"! (gasping upon realizing what she just said) Her name should be "Spareamy"! I'm going to change her birth certificate as soon as we get home!
  • Extreme Doormat: She allows Amy to walk all over her, up until "Twinning Isn't Everything".
  • Foil: To Lindsay. She has a very similar relationship to Amy that Lindsay does to Heather, but with the intellect roles switched. Lindsay was simple-minded, submissive, and wasn't even aware of Heather's true nature until it was too late. Samey on the other hand is the only one aside from Jasmine who sees Amy for who she is, and ends up being the one to put Amy in her place first rather than the inverse.

  • Frame-Up: How she eliminates Amy.

  • Lady in Red: Like her sister, she wears also wears a red cheerleader outfit.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: The Light to Amy's Dark.
  • Masquerade: Of the Impersonating the Evil Twin variety. However, the masquerade ends when Amy returns for revenge.
  • Meaningful Name: Her nickname is one more letter than the word "same", and arose specifically because she is the twin sister of Amy.
  • Nice Girl: In contrast to her Jerkass sister.
  • Oh, Crap!: When Amy returns for revenge.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Her real name is Sammy. Amy forces the name Samey on her.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Samey's kind-hearted, bubbly, and generous demeanor is a stark contrast to her sister's cruel, egotistic, and selfish attitude.
  • Rage Breaking Point: After enduring nearly a lifetime of bullying from Amy, Samey's suppressed anger all comes out during her time on Pahkitew Island.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: She tries to give Amy one in front of her teammates when she finally stands up for herself; however, Amy spins the situation around so that she would appear as the victim and Samey as the mean sister.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Amy's Red.
  • The Scapegoat: She always shoulders the blame for Amy's mistakes.
    (after the twins come out of a greased tube with their team's pig)
    Amy: I'm sweaty and disgusting! I look like you!
    Samey: I'm sorry! (tries to brush Amy off) But you're the one who scared the pig.
    Amy: (she slaps Samey's hand away) You beg my pardon?! Whose fault is this?!
    Samey: (in a defeated tone) Mine.
    Amy: Yes! Always.
  • She's Got Legs: The cheerleader outfit puts much evidence in her legs.
  • Shipper on Deck: For Jasmine and Shawn.
  • Sibling Rivalry: Though it only begins to surface in "Twinning Isn't Everything" onwards.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: The Yin to Amy's Yang.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: She's the Lindsay to Amy's Heather. Also both girls are blonde, naïve and kindhearted and described as being "bubbly".
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: In her audition, she claims that she doesn't have a sister nor is she called "Samey".
  • Theme Twin Naming: Amy and Samey.
  • Took a Level in Badass: At the start Samey was an Extreme Doormat to Amy who let herself get regularly abused, but by the end she physically fights her sister for her own rights.

    Scarlett, The Quiet Brainiac 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hate_him.png

"We play monkey see monkey do."

Voiced by: Kristi Friday

Teams: Pimâpotew Kinosewak (Floating Salmon)


  • Aborted Arc: She was originally going to be Pahkitew Island's main villain but this was changed to making her a one episode threat.
  • Adorkable: Subverted when she reveals her true nature.
  • All There in the Manual: According to her character bio, the lens in her glasses are fake implying that she wears them as part of her ruse of being the Hidden Villain. This is further evidenced by her taking them off in "Scarlett Fever" when her true nature is fully exposed.
  • Anime Hair: When she lets out her Prim and Proper Bun and reveals her true self.
  • Anything but That!: She begs Chris not to blast her away with Max.
  • Ax-Crazy: Her true self is this. To the extent where she tried to blow up the island which would have killed everyone.
  • Awesome by Analysis: Uses her intellect and observation skills to come up with impressive Batman Gambits, especially when she figured out the island was artificial, giving her the idea of using the command controls to blackmail Chris into giving her the money.
  • The Baroness: Like Jo, Scarlett is of the Rosa Klebb subtype due to her librarian-equse appearance. However, Scarlett's plainness was just a front to her true self. Unlike many Rosa Klebb Baronesses, Scarlett is simply blasted off the island and not killed off.
  • Batman Gambit: She often uses these to get ahead.
    • In "Mo Monkey Mo Problems", she suggests playing "Monkey See Monkey Do" with a tree full of monkeys in order to retrieve their team's gold coin.
    • She does this with Max several times.
    • Knowing that Chris is a habitual liar, she tricks the other campers by stating that they can't disable the island's self-destruct sequence from the control room, directing them to another room. The others believe her, only to walk into an ambush of robotic Chris drones.
    • Ironically, she falls victim to one. Sky knew that Scarlett wouldn't open the door to the control room unless it was Chris with the million dollars. Sky and the others use a busted Chris robot to trick Scarlett into opening the control room door, which results in Scarlett getting hogtied by her hair by Sugar and the island's self-destruct sequence halted.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: Max treats her like one, much to her annoyance.
  • Berserk Button: She does not take being belittled by Max's arrogance very well. Or even be mistaken for his girlfriend.
    Scarlett: (in confessional, in an angry tone) Sidekick?! (growling)
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: Lampshaded by Topher in "Three Zones and a Baby".
    Topher: Um... When did Scarlett get so scary?
  • Big-Bad Ensemble: With Sugar of Pahkitew Island.
  • Big "NO!": She gives one after Max throws away her hacked remote control for the island's computer systems.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Has everyone fooled until "Scarlett Fever".
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Gets hit with this hard during the last five minutes of "Scarlett Fever"; she has complete control over Pahiktew Island and the contestants at her mercy, either hand her the money or she lets the island self destruct and kill them. What happens next? She lets the control room door open, leaving her wide open to Sugar giving her a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown and foiling her Evil Plan, and all because Max tricked her with a very obviously beaten up Chris robot who was visibly glitching. Never mind that this came from the smartest contestant in the season.
  • Bound and Gagged: Played with. Before they were shot out of the Cannon of Shame, Scarlett had her arms bound while Max was gagged with marshmallows.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: The first and only Big Bad who stays hidden from the audience for the majority of the season, with only small hints being revealed of her true nature along the way, before The Reveal where she shows her true antagonist colors for one episode before she's gone.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Scarlett Fever."
  • Deadpan Snarker: When she's around Max.
  • Death Glare: Gives one to Topher in "Three Zones and a Baby", scaring him.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: She shares in a confessional that her brother pulled her hair once. She, in turn, made his remote control toys come to life and attack him at night. For six years. She states that he is still in therapy for it.
  • Distaff Counterpart:
    • Her bio actually describes her as being a female Cameron, due to both being Impossible Geniuses who excel at handling technology.
    • To Mal; much like him, she fools everyone into thinking that she is nice, is successful at doing so, is a Card-Carrying Villain, is taken seriously when her true nature is revealed, has no redeeming or comedic qualities, and is sociopathic.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: She is yet another guest villain in a season that lacks a true main antagonist. She is eliminated the very episode she reveals her true nature.
  • The Dog Was the Mastermind: When she reveals her true self.
    Scarlett: This is the real me! The Scarlett I've kept hidden until now! Biding my time; waiting to strike! I... am... EVIL!!! (cackles evilly)
  • The Dragon: Max believes that she is his sidekick, when in reality, it's the inverse.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: Most of Max's successful evil deeds were her ideas to begin with, and in the grand scheme of the season s.
  • Enfant Terrible: She couldn't have been any older than nine or ten when she started using her brother's toys to attack him.
  • Evil All Along: Downplayed. While most antagonists hide their true nature, but let out their real intentions to the audience, there was almost no sign of Scarlett being as evil as she turned out to be. That being said, she was still blatantly the brains of Max's operation, always demonstrated a general Lack of Empathy, and certainly didn't go out of her way to seem nice.
  • Evil Brit: She has a British accent, then it's revealed she's the hidden Big Bad of the season.
  • Evil Counterpart: She's pretty much an evil mixture of Harold and Izzy's alterego Brainzilla.
  • Evil Genius: She is one of the smartest contestants in the series and also among the most evil.
  • Evil Is Burning Hot: Like most villains, she is accompanied by a burning silhouette in the episode where she reveals her true nature.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Played with. Early in the season, she maintains a low key personality to keep attention off of her; however, when she reveals her true self, her personality becomes more flamboyant.
  • Evil Laugh: In "Scarlett Fever", she gives a more subdued laugh in the confessional while it becomes more flamboyant when she reveals her true self to Max.
  • Evil Plan: Her end game in "Scarlett Fever" was to take over control of the island's command center, then use it to blackmail Chris into giving her the prize money or she would let the island blow.
  • Evil Redhead: Even though it's more of a ginger.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Her voice becomes a bit deeper and raspier when she reveals her true self.
  • Eviler Than Thou: More so than Max.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: When she reveals her true nature, she lets down her Prim and Proper Bun.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: At first glance, she seems to be an awkward and rather shy genius. However, that seemingly nonthreatening facade hides an extremely volatile personality and a dangerous mind.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Being eliminated with Max.
  • Fiery Redhead: Hidden for most of the season, but eventually revealed as an aspect of her true nature.
  • Foreshadowing: In her audition video, at the top-right hand corner of the of the screen there is a globe with knives lodged in it.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: She shows no remorse for her actions.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: After her final revelation.
  • The Glasses Come Off: When she reveals her true self.
  • Go-Getter Girl: Like Courtney, she intends to use the prize money to better herself. However, the reason she gives in her audition, to attend the university of her choosing, is just a front to her real intentions.
  • Good Eyes, Evil Eyes: Her irises become smaller after her reveal.
  • Hidden Villain: The first of her kind for Total Drama villains, where the viewers don't get to know about her true nature until several episodes in.
  • Humiliation Conga: Her attempt to blackmail Chris by threatening the contestants lives blows up in her face when Max, of all people tricks her to opening the door to the control room using a busted up Chris bot, she ends up on the receiving end of a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown by Sugar, gets Bound and Gagged, and is blasted off the island with her least favorite contestant.
  • Hyper-Competent Sidekick: To Max. The only reason any of his evil schemes succeeded was because Scarlett came up with them in the first place. She gets more than fed up with it.
    Scarlett: I... am... not... your... SIDEKICK!!!
  • Irony: Max, the person she saw as completely incompetent and who she used to take over the show, manages to trick her (even if the plan was Sky's idea), which leads to her plans being foiled.
  • Knight of Cerebus: "Scarlett Fever" is widely regarded as one of, if not the darkest episodes in the series.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Despite getting away with abusing Max throughout the season, her downfall ultimately comes from him.
  • Mad Scientist: In her audition tape, Scarlett is sitting in what appears to be a laboratory, full of test-tubes, flasks, and Bunsen burners, as well as a globe that's been stabbed by knives!
  • Manipulative Bitch: She gives Heather and Alejandro a run for their money in the way she controls Max the whole season.
  • Mask of Sanity: Throughout Pahiktew Island she appeared to be one of the more normal contestants, often times contrasting Max... and then "Scarlett Fever" came.
  • Meaningful Name: She explains she was named after an English surname derived from the occupational word for cloth. Also it matches her hair color.
  • Meganekko: She later ditches her glasses when she reveals her true self.
  • Motor Mouth: Normally, Scarlett is The Quiet One; however, when she starts speaking, she doesn't stop, especially when explaining something scientific.
  • Nerdy Bully: At first she seems like a standard nerd who befriends Max the Laughably Evil Big Bad Wannabe, but is later revealed to be a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing and has tricked Max into hurting himself multiple times for her own amusement.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Falls victim to one, courtesy of Sugar.
  • Non-Gameplay Elimination: She's booted off the island after attempting to blow up the other campers on it in "Scarlett Fever".
  • The Not-Love Interest: She and Max rarely have significant interaction with anyone but each other. A few characters seem to interpret them as a couple, and Max seems to think Scarlett could be attracted to him, but they firmly remain platonic friends/enemies.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: She appears nonthreatening at first, but over the course of the season, her true colors are revealed.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist: There's no limit to her knowledge.
  • Only Friend: Max. Early on at least. However, unbeknownst to Max, Scarlett tries to get him eliminated numerous times. She failed.
  • Out-Gambitted: By Max of all people.
  • Power Makes Your Hair Grow: A variant. She wore glasses and kept her hair in a bun as part of maintaining the guise of a harmless and Adorkable genius. However, when she reveals herself as a villain and takes over the island, she lets out her Anime Hair, emphasizing her true nature.
  • Prim and Proper Bun: She lets it down when she reveals her true self.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: She does this at times to get a point across, especially when she reveals her true self.
    Scarlett: (in confessional) It's official; I... hate... Max!
  • The Quiet One: Her label "the Quiet Brainiac". However, when she does speak, she can become a Motor Mouth.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: When she reveals her true self to Max; however, her irises revert back to their normal color shortly afterward.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: She's the cold and calculating blue to Max's hammy and egotistical red. Until she reveals her true colours, anyway.
  • Sarcasm Mode: How she puts up with Max.
    Scarlett: Wow. That's so evil.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Whenever she explains something to her teammates, she often starts with a long and drawn out explanation, and when her teammates give her confused looks about what she just said, she is forced to give the short version.
  • Ship Tease: With Max.
  • Shrinking Violet: Subverted as part of her Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon personality. At first glance, she acted this way, but then she reveals her true nature later on.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: Significant given that she is a major antagonist of the season.
  • Smart People Speak the Queen's English: Much more evident in her audition video, where she actually explains she's of English descent.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Wears glasses, and rivals Cameron in intelligence.
  • The Smart Girl: It's between her and Cameron for most book-smart character of the whole series.
  • The Sociopath: She's quite willing to kill everyone on the island simply to get the money.
  • Spock Speak: She speaks very formally.
  • The Starscream: After she reveals her hatred for Max, Scarlett tries to get him voted out every opportunity she gets. Even though she's very smart, she has failed every time.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: How she views Max. To a lesser extent, this is how she views Jasmine and Topher when they show confusion about her Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness.
    Scarlett: (in the confessional, in an annoyed tone) Use... little... words.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute:
    • She is basically a more serious and evil version of Brainzilla, Izzy's super-intelligent persona. Scarlett also ends up being as psychotic as Izzy; however, Izzy's craziness is Played for Laughs while Scarlett's is Played for Drama.
    • She is also one to Harold as they're red headed, bespectacled nerds. However, Scarlett appears to have a little more common sense than Harold. And Harold isn't a homicidal psychopath.
    • However "Evil Scarlett" is often compared with Mal, being the only other true sociopath on the show.
  • Talkative Loon: In the English airings.
  • Take Over the World: The globe in her bedroom has two knifes sticking out of it. This implies that this is her true aspiration in life.
  • Twitchy Eye: Gets one after Max calls her "sidekick".
  • Villainous Friendship: With Max. Type IV with Shades of Type I later on.
    • Subverted as of Episode 6 where she starts trying to eliminate him. Unfortunately for her, none of her attempts have worked.
    • Despite that, she still helps Max when he and her are sick during the first individual challenge at the merge. However, she only stayed with him knowing that he would be easy elimination fodder.
  • Vocal Evolution: She has a much stronger English accent in her audition video.
  • Walking Spoiler: Revealing her true nature, as well as a couple of foreshadowing bits in the previous episode or two, changes just about everything the viewing audience thought they knew about her.
  • The Woman Behind the Man: She strings Max along for the whole season, and has him carry out her plans while diverting attention away from herself.

    Topher, The Chris Wannabe 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/meaty_toph.png

"Get ready for the Topher experience."

Voiced by: Christopher Jacot

Teams: Pimâpotew Kinosewak (Floating Salmon)


  • Ambiguously Gay: One way to interpret his apparent crush on Chris, his obsession with his hair, and his effeminate voice.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Topher is just as credible as Sierra for the position of Chris McLean's No. 1 Fan, only he is unfazed by his sadistic love of torture, and actually relishes it.
  • Attention Whore: A very serious case of it, and probably the biggest one since Fame-Monger Dakota, as he is always seen trying to hog Chris' spotlight or shoving his face in the camera.
  • Big "YES!": In "Three Zones and a Baby", he gives one when he thinks that he's going to take over as host of Total Drama. Unfortunately, he does this in an avalanche zone costing his team the challenge.
  • Brainless Beauty: Downplayed. He's Street Smart; however, his arrogance proves to be his undoing.
  • Cats Are Mean: Topher's cat, Chef, attacks him during his audition. Unlike Jasmine's cat Whiskers, Chef's attack is justified because Topher woke him up by shouting into a megaphone.
  • Dumb Blond: His hair is somewhere between dark blond and light brown. Regardless, he is not very bright.
  • Flat Character: Tends to happen when your only defining trait is being a mini-Chris.
  • Foil: To Sierra, as another Ascended Fanboy obsessed with Chris. However the differences are that Sierra's affection for Chris is genuine, until she finally sees Chris for who he is and abandons all her respect for him. Whereas Topher knows fully well just how twisted and sadistic Chris is and loves him for it, but is eventually revealed to be a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing and attempts to usurp Chris from his job.
  • Hidden Depths: At first he seems like a peppy ditz who only entered the competition so that he could meet his idol. Then he manages to steal Chris' phone...
  • It's All About Me: Like his idol, Topher is extremely egocentric.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Surprisingly, but briefly, implied in the fourth episode, where the only real thing of note he does is reassure "Amy" that she's not at fault for her sister's weirdness. In some of the minor interactions with the twins, he seems to generally like them. Such as thanking Amy for the berries and calling “Amy” ‘baby’ in episode 5. He also shares many sweet reactions with the rest of the group, such as being shocked at Max electrocuting Ella and cheering when they blew the challenge in episode 7. Meaning that he’s not as sadistic as Chris.
  • Keet: He gets excitable when he's around Chris. And much like Ella, Topher's enthusiasm annoys Chris.
  • The Load: He isn't good for anything other than looking pretty; this is especially the case in "Three Zones and a Baby" where his idiocy costs his team the win.
  • Meaningful Name: Chris + Topher = Christopher.
  • Mr. Exposition: He tries to provide commentary for his actions as well for his team's actions, much to Chris' annoyance.
  • Mr. Fanservice: The only thing he's good for is standing around and looking pretty.
  • Narcissist: Much like his idol, Topher is very concerned with his appearance, especially his face.
    Topher: (after Chef blasts him with the canned pasta cannon) Ugh! Ow! Not the hair! (whines as he tries to get pasta out of his hair)
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Topher is partially based on Ryan Seacrest.
  • Oh, Crap!: When Chris reveals that he was posing as one of the producers of Total Drama.
  • The One Guy: On Team Kinosewak after "This Is The Pits!" where he becomes the final male member.
  • Out-Gambitted: By Chris, which leads to his elimination. As Chris puts it, a big lesson in show business is to "never try to play a player".
  • Sadist: Taking after Chris.
  • Satellite Character: Topher's sole storyline is a disconnected run of being an obsessive Chris Fanboy who wants to take over his job. Up until episode 7, he never even has a significant conversation with anyone other than Chris. It also seemed as if most of the other characters were unaware of his existence.
  • Skewed Priorities: He is more concerned with replacing Chris as the host of Total Drama than he is helping his team. This leads to his downfall as Chris had set him up to believe that he was going to take over as the host of Total Drama.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He thinks he can replace Chris.
  • Smug Snake: A non-villainous example, his arrogance and ego prove to be his downfall.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute:
    • An excessively dedicated fan who obsesses over and annoys a sadistic host? Hmm, sounds a lot like Sierra. However, unlike Sierra, Topher wants to become Chris.
    • He's also comparable to narcissist Justin who is also vain and obsessed with his appearance.
  • Too Dumb to Live:
    • He cheers loudly in an avalanche area, which costs his team the challenge and leads to his elimination.
    • Not to mention his not recognizing his very idol, Chris, obviously hiding his voice seconds earlier in the call that prompted this loud cheering.
  • Younger and Hipper: He refers to himself as "Chris 2.0". He begins to act more like the sadistic host as the season progresses, eventually leading Chris to (correctly) believe that Topher is after his job.
