Chris is the host of the show. He's cynical, sarcastic, lazy, sadistic, and a Jerkass.

    The contestants 

Total Drama Tokyo features twenty-two original characters.

Anderson - The Troublemaker

'Dude, I pulled an epic prank on Shawn. I made him lose the game, and ate half of his candy bar. He's raging at me, and he should be here any second, so I gotta hide!"
Anderson is an extremely immature and perverted kid who is obsessed with pulling pranks on people. His sister is PJ, the silent girl from Total Drama Revolution.

Ari - The Awkward Sweetheart

"No, I like a lot of guys. I mean, I think a lot of guys are cute, I mean... Whatever."
Ari is pretty and aspires to be popular and make friends, but is awkward as well. She develops a very good friendship with Roz, and ends up navigating a love triangle with Roz and Tolkien.

Bennett - The Playa

" I'm just a kid who has extraoooordinary luck with th' laaadies."
Bennett likes girls, and they like him back, so much that he always has two random girls flanking him at all times, who do whatever he wants them to.

  • Ambiguously Brown: One of his nameless girls is this.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Revealed after his bangs are pushed to the side.
  • Blinding Bangs: His eyes are covered due to his Justin Bieber hair, until he gets voted out.
  • Flat Character: Bennett didn't really get that much development and was mostly created to be a throwaway gag/first boot.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He was the first contestant voted out, and had about 15 lines.

Casey - The Girl Who Has A Scarf And Thinks She's Popular Like Chelsey But Isn't

"Hmm... Popularity meter... Best part of a kid's life... Little kid over there... Crap, I forgot."
Casey is a strange girl who idolizes Chelsey from Total Drama Revolution and tries to behave just like her. However, she doesn't have the greatest read on Chelsey's personality.

Delia - The Violent Fanatic

"You all will regret that this ever happened..."
Delia has had a hard life, and is now very dangerous and deadly. She hides it all under a cool mask of calmness, but has many terrifying things going through her mind.

Estrella - The Goth

Tolkien: Do you think ANYTHING is cute, Estrella?
Estrella: Blood. Centipedes crawling across people's skin. Knives flying out of nowhere and almost stabbing people's heads. Dead dogs in the highway. Vultures that eat human carcasses. Gory, grisly corpses hanging out to dry. Oh, and teddy bears.
Estrella is, well, a goth. She enjoys reading morbid novels, being sarcastic, and saying grisly things.

Flora - Some Girl

"Why am I so boring? I just want people to like me!"
Flora doesn't need a biography, she's just that one girl in every show, who always seems to stay in the background and not do anything of importance the whole time. She's not a Mary Sue, or a villain, or anything. Just a boring girl.

  • Breakout Character: The prime example of the entire story, and possibly even the entire series, her only competition is Layla. She later returns to the next story, Total Drama Superstar Showdown, for this reason.
  • Expy: She's one of the author's past female slotfiller characters, such as Emilee, Mackenzie, and Mattie, but unlike them, she was intended to be boring.
  • Flat Character: Flora is a parody of one.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Implied, especially with the quote above, and later expanded upon in the next season.
  • That Makes Me Feel Angry: Talks like this all the time, due to her simple personality.

Gail - The Animal Lover

Gail loves animals. Yeah, that's about all we know.

Horatio - The Jazz Cat

"I know that times are tough, but I think we should just all try to... keep the faith."
Horatio is a jazz musician who wears a tux and frequents nightclubs, a la the Blues Brothers.

  • Cool Shades
  • Expy: Inspired by Horatio Sanz's character in the Catalina Wine Mixer scene of Step Brothers.
  • Nice Guy
  • Non-Gameplay Elimination: Is forcibly removed from the game due to his saxophone playing summoning Dolph.
  • Older Than They Look: This scene suggests this:
    Tolkien: All right, Horatio, you play video games, right?
    Horatio: Yeah, dog, totally. The SNES is what's big now, right?
    Estrella: ...Horatio, how old ARE you?

Isabel - The Ditz

"Oooh, I love Tokyo! I climbed the Eiffel Tower here when I was four."
Isabel is basically Lindsay if she Took a Level in Dumbass... if that was even possible.

Julian - The Rocker

"Well, first of all, don’t wear cologne. Girls don’t like cologne unless they like gross, pompous jocks, and you’re not a gross, pompous jock. So, yeah, no cologne. Let your pits develop a natural smell. That’s what I do, and you know Estrella loves me."
Julian is a pretty chill dude, who plays music and has a laid-back view on life. He's also a self-proclaimed ladies' man, with... mixed results.

Kai - The Magician

"Hello, young children. I am the great Kai. I will now take a rabbit out of my hat."
Kai is a magician, basically, who's jealous of his older brother.

Layla - The Rich Snob

"Charles, make them give me a warm welcome. I didn't come here to be overlooked. I came here to win, and add more bucks to my collection. So make them welcome me."
Layla is an extremely rich and extremely bratty spoiled heiress who's used to living a posh life, with even a butler following her around constantly and doing whatever she wants.

Neal - The Smartass

Puck - The Chill Guy

"What's chillin'? I'm Puck! Just an average guy, tryin' to make my way in the world. 'Water' you guys' names?! Bwa-ha-ha-ha!"
Puck is a short, pudgy, bizarre character who loves making cheesy water/ice-related puns, thinks he's half-penguin, and has a perpetually enthusiastic attitude, to the point of delusion.

  • Acrofatic: Occasionally played straight, occasionally averted. He's a horrible swimmer, but has some strange hidden talents that come out in certain challenges.
  • Butt-Monkey: Within eighteen chapters, Puck almost drowns multiple times, gets kicked in the groin by Wolfgang multiple times, gets turned into a pig, gets attacked by a demon while using a Porta-Potty, gets attacked by Japanese tourists, and gets his pizza stolen. Among many other things.
  • Embarrassing First Name: Cornelius.
  • Fat and Skinny: With Wolfgang.
  • From Bad to Worse:
    Kai: (after Vivienne has confessed her love to him) This couldn't possibly get more awkward...
    Puck: (in a deep, gruff voice) Beans and cornbread.
    Kai: It just did.
  • Groin Attack: Frequently the recipient of these, courtesy of Wolfgang.
  • Heh Heh, You Said "X":
    Chris: Epic Rap Battles of Tokyo! Round One! Puck Something-or-other! Versus! Julian Reddick!
    Puck: Julian's last name is Reddick? (giggles immaturely)
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: Half the things he says.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Was often annoying the hell out of Wolfgang, but still believed Wolfgang was his best friend.
  • Keet: Puck is a small, constantly upbeat and hyper character.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: Or the closest thing to this in a fanfiction.
  • Large Ham: Possibly the hammiest character yet.
  • The Load: He rarely contributes anything helpful to team challenges, yet somehow manages to squeak by elimination every time.
  • Love Triangle: With Thomas and Casey, pre-merge.
  • Naked People Are Funny: Has been seen "in the buff" a few times, solely for the sake of comedy.
  • Nonindicative Name: His stereotype, "The Chill Guy" - he's not chill (as in laid-back) at all, it's a reference to his horrible water/ice-themed puns.
  • Odd Friendship: With Casey.
  • Official Couple: With Casey again.
  • Prematurely Bald: Under his helmet.
  • Pungeon Master: Puck makes constant puns, usually involving water or ice. They more often than not turn out horrible.
  • Raised By Penguins: Or so he claims (he was actually born in Maine).
  • Repetitive Name: His last name is Puckerschmidt.
  • Shout-Out Theme Naming: Him and Wolfgang's names together make... well, Wolfgang Puck, but Word of God says that the author noticed the coincidence after he made the two characters (they were named after two Animal Crossing NPCs).
  • So Unfunny, It's Funny: Puck's entire sense of humor falls under this.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Him and Layla/Charles tended to be the center of most of the jokes post-merge.
  • Tagalong Kid: Puck is the shortest and most annoying contestant on every team he's on, and he also contributes the least.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: Once again, with Casey.

Roz - The Maniac

"Chappy is awesome. So, last year, me and my friend Zari joined his whale club. It was really boring, but we joined because he's so awesome. We baked him an apple pie one day. True story."
Roz is Izzy's cousin. Hyper, cheerful, enjoys stalking her science teacher, that kind of stuff.

Shawn - The Jamaican Rapper

Shawn is, well, a rapper from Jamaica. Acts as the straight man to many of the more crazy characters.

  • Big Fun
  • The Generic Guy: Outside of his rapping, he really doesn't have that many outstanding character traits.
  • The Lancer: To Tolkien.
  • Informed Attribute: Is supposed to be fat, but his character picture really doesn't show this, however this is due to the author struggling with drawing certain body shapes back when the story was written.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Based on Sean Kingston, the only difference is that he's a rapper instead of a reggae singer.
  • Overly Long Name: His full name is Kishawn Aliaune Damala Bouga Time Puru Nacka Lu Lu Lu Badara Akon Thiam Anderson, which is surprisingly a combination of Sean Kingston's and Akon's full names.
  • Shipper on Deck: Ships Tolkien/Ari.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Of Donny from Total Drama Revolution, the season before. Both are pretty mellow, laid-back guys who hang out with more crazy guys (Vincent/Julian) and two guys who happen to be cousins. (Kavren/Tolkien)

Thomas - The Extremely Tall Guy

Thomas loudly says something censored that rhymes with Puck.
Thomas is tall, goofy, and... kind of an asshole?
  • Bandage Mummy: Is turned into this temporarily once he falls off of the Tokyo Tower.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: Much to his dismay.
  • Expy: Of one of the author's friends. However, when he was turned into more of a jerkish character, the similarities (other than the appearance and height) disappeared.
  • Has a Type: His biography, and his interactions with Casey, all but confirm he's into tall redheads.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Casey.
  • Love Triangle: With Puck and Casey.
  • Nice Guy: At first.
  • Precision F-Strike: Upon his elimination.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: He started out as a nice, somewhat goofy guy, and turned into a jerk who hated Puck and was extremely jealous of his relationship with Casey.

Tolkien - The Fantasy Geek

"That was so weird. Like, I had to pick between Roz, Ari, and the Black Mage from L&L, and I picked burrito!"
Tolkien is a nerdy, short boy who's in love with the card game Luncheons & Laggins, but also very interested in girls.

  • Author Avatar: Tolkien is meant to be this, from his crush on the character who is based on one of the author's crushes, to his nerdiness and appearance, especially the hairstyle and prominent nose. His obsession with Luncheons & Laggins was so he wouldn't completely resemble the author.
  • Casanova Wannabe
  • Character Focus: Tolkien has the most depth out of the characters other than possibly Layla, as his inner thoughts are shown constantly.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: With two different girls, too, as Ari doesn't seem to want to be anything more than friends and Roz is seen with other boys constantly.
  • Extraverted Nerd
  • Geek: His label is "The Fantasy Geek."
  • Jewish and Nerdy: Tolkien is confirmed to be Jewish, another trait inspired by the author.
  • Love Triangle: Is involved with one with Ari and Roz.
  • Shout-Out: He's named after J. R. R. Tolkien, obviously.
  • Teens Are Short: One of the shortest contestants of the season along with Anderson.

Vivienne - The Mysterious Romantic

Vivienne is a mysterious, lovesick girl who has had her heart broken in the past and joined Total Drama to meet kind people.

Wolfgang - The Loner

"Puck... I hate you. I always did. You're just too much of a CRETIN to notice it! So just bug off and leave me alone!"
Wolfgang is a grumpy, aggressive, and oddly fashionable guy who doesn't really like social interaction.

Yuri - The Yaoi Fanatic

Yuri is a cheerful Japanese girl who lives close to where the season is filmed and who also happens to be obsessed with yaoi pairings.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Once she reveals in the confessional that she secretly has a crush on Shawn, she qualifies as this, especially considering she doesn't do anything other than force him and Julian to date each other.
  • Anime Hair
  • Everyone Is Gay: Seems to think this.
  • Genki Girl: Most definitely.
  • Joke Character: Yuri was created by one of the users on the website the story was posted on, and was not meant to have any sort of characterization or depth, just being a bizarre one-note character.
  • Most Fanfic Writers Are Girls
  • Shipper on Deck: For Julian and Shawn, Wolfgang and Puck, and MANY more.
  • Yaoi Fangirl: It's basically her label.

How well does it match the trope?
