Go To

Distrust is a pair of crossover fanfictions blending Total Drama and Danganronpa written by Fuzzboy. The stories share the same base premise; taking the cast of their work, and swapping them with the other. What this leads to is two vastly different stories almost entirely different from their original concepts. The two stories are as follows:


As of August 22nd, across both stories, 4 chapters have been released and 23,000 words archived.

Distrust provides examples of:

    In General 

    Totally Dramatic Island 
  • Adaptational Villainy: Jin Kirigiri, unlike his relatively harmless (though stupid) self in canon, is genuinely quite threatening and intimidating here, spending most of his screentime screwing over and intimidating Chris.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: With the exception of Chris, Chef, and Monokuma, among the players, Byakuya, Celestia, Fuyuhiko, Gundham, Kokichi, Miu, Mondo, and possibly even Tsumugi stand out as potential major antagonists.
  • Butt-Monkey: Hiro and Kazuichi pretty quickly find themselves at the bottom of the totem pole, becoming something comparable to cruel jokes to the rest of the cast.
    • Chris gets even less respect from this cast than he did from his original contestants.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Leon's attempts to flirt with the girls are...Less than impressive. With the odd exception of Ibuki and Tsumugi.
    • Similarly and to an even more pathetic degree, Kazuichi's attempts to get on Sonia's good side aren't very successful.
  • Demoted to Extra: Several characters were students (and thus main characters) in the Danganronpa series are relegated to limited staff roles in the story proper. These include Kirumi, Rantaro, Mikan, etc.
    • Monokuma especially, as while he is in the story, he won't be as active of a villain as in canon, and considering the Lighter and Softer tone of the story, likely won't be seriously hurting anyone.
  • Depraved Kids' Show Host: As expected, the one and only Chris McLean .
  • The Ditz: Hiro is...Not the brightest contestant to say the least.
  • Establishing Character Moment: The second chapter is one built around these; twenty-six of them to be specific!
  • Lighter and Softer: Danganronpa proper is a Deadly Game focusing on teenagers killing each other. Here, its actually rather goofy and none of the character's lives seem to be in any real risk. For now at least...
  • Loophole Abuse: The forms for the competition said you must be in high school in order to participate. While most of the contestants are teenagers and at the expected age, Yasuhiro is twenty-one but was Held Back in School several times. Chris reluctantly allows him to compete.
  • Love at First Sight: The first time Kazuichi's eyes meet Sonia's, he falls head over heels for her.
  • Mythology Gag: The names Chris gives the teams, "The Soaring Eagles" and "The Ferocious Tigers" are the names he intended to use in Total Drama Pahkitew Island before realizing the translations were incorrect.
  • Very False Advertising: Zig-Zagged; Jabberwock Island was indeed a very popular, successful resort. The false advertising comes in the fact the host neglected to mention it was basically in ruins.
  • Welcome Episode: Welcome to Jabberwock Island is a chapter dedicated to introducing the entire cast to both the reader and Chris himself.

    A Game of Trial and Murder 

How well does it match the trope?
