The Randomverse series restarts the Total Drama series from season one, Total Drama Island, and randomizes the competitors (as well as 16 original characters created by the author from another fanfic of theirs, Total Drama Danger Island) around to different introductory seasons to make a whole new story. With new casts come new plots to follow, new friendships to emerge, and new alliances.

Random Drama Island introduces twenty-two teenagers to the first season of a hot new reality show. Included among the cast are- Alejandro (The Arch Villain), Amy (The Mean Twin), DJ (The Brickhouse With a Heart), Duncan (The Delinquent), Gwen (The Loner), Harold (The Dweeb), Heather (The Queen Bee), Kitsune/Faith (The Goofball), Leshawna (The Sista With a 'Tude), Malcolm (The Pain Magnet), Mike (The Comedian), Noah (The Bookworm), Sammy/Samey (The Nice Twin), Scarlett (The Quiet Braniac), Shawn (The Zombie Conspiracy Nut), Sky (The Athlete), Staci (The Compulsive Liar), Sugar (The Pageant Queen), Trent (The Cool Guy), Tyler (The Jock), Victor (The Gentleman), and Zoey (The Indie Chick). With Alejandro and Kitsune trying to eliminate each other, Heather making the first alliance in the series, Mike and Zoey falling in love, and much more, it turns into a crazy summer towards the finale where only one will win the hundred grand.


Random Drama Action takes the fifteen contestants that tied in the Race to the Case to the abandoned film lot, where they have a chance at winning one million dollars. Just when the contestants thought that the first season was crazy, the second season turns out to be even crazier. One contestant gets seriously injured, another lies and disses her team, and someone is eventually forced to act against their basic personality. Also included is the Aftermath show, hosted by two contestants that didn't make the cut for the season, and even there, drama is present. Alejandro, Amy, DJ, Duncan, Harold, Heather, Kitsune, Leshawna, Mike, Noah, Sammy, Shawn, Sky, Victor and Zoey all participate in this season, with Gwen and Trent hosting the Aftermath.

Random Drama World Tour has the fifteen contestants that were randomly selected by Chris competing for one million dollars while competing in challenges that take place all across the globe. Alejandro, Duncan, Harold, Heather, Kitsune, Leshawna, Malcolm, Mike, Noah, Scarlett, Sky, Staci, Tyler, Victor, and Zoey all return this season, and joining them are the two newbies, Matthew (The Hipster) and Sierra (The Obsessive Uber-Fan). The season also contains shuffled mixes of songs featured in the canon season, and original songs written by the author. Three teams are made, one contestant quits after being pushed too far, and a new threat emerges. The Aftermath also reappears, and Blaineley is around to cause trouble.


Random Drama Revenge of the Island returns to the island, which has become even more rundown before and has been used as a toxic waste dump. The season also introduces thirteen new campers- Angel (The Innocent Idealist), Beardo (The Human Soundboard), Bridgette (The Surfer Girl), Cody (The Geek), Ella (The Fairytale Princess), Eva (The Hothead), Ezekiel (The Homeschooled Guy), Gary (The Rap Star Wannabe) Jo (The Take No Prisoners Jock-ette), Lightning/Rudy (The Athletic Overachiever), Lily (The Cynic), Natasha (The Mastermind), and Sam (The Nice Guy Gamer). The campers compete in dangerous challenges while avoiding the island's mutated wildlife. One camper gets involved in a conflict with the mutant shark named Fang, two campers express interest in each other, and three campers look to take the competition by less than moral means. Contestants from the first three seasons also appear in cameos.


Random Drama All-Stars takes place a year after the events of Revenge of the Island when Chris is released from prison on parole to host the fifth season. All-Stars features fourteen of the best contestants from the past four seasons - Alejandro, Angel, Bridgette, Cody, Heather, Jo, Kitsune, Lightning, Lily, Matthew, Mike, Natasha, Scarlett, Victor. The contestants compete in challenges either reminiscent or a mix of past challenges to not only win immunity, but to also win a night of relaxation in the new spa hotel while the losing team sleeps in one of the old cabins. There's a catch to winning though, one member of the winning team must serve exile on Boney Island, where an immunity idol is hidden. Older competitors and newer competitors collide, new friendships and rivalries form, and there are unexpected twists never seen before.

Random Drama Pahkitew Island goes to the uncharted and wild Pahkitew Island, with fourteen new competitors: Anne Maria (The Jersey Girl), B (The Strong Silent Genius), Brick (The Cadet), Britney (The Globetrotter), Cameron (The Wide-Eyed Bubble Boy), Courtney (The Control Freak), Dave (The Germaphobe), Dawn (The Moonchild), Geoff (The Party Dude), Izzy (The Wildcard), Jaxon (The Artist), Justin (The Eye Candy), Katie (The Hot-Blooded), and Sadie (The Codependent). The challenges are just as dangerous, but now, they are completely on their own, having to make their own shelter and find their own food.

Random Drama Danger Island goes back to the newly resurfaced Wawanakwa Island, which is in state of disrepair due to the cheapness of the surfacing and the camp being underwater for a year. Sixteen new campers are introduced - Beth (The Dork), Carly (The Shrinking Violet), Contessa (The Hopeless Romantic), Dakota (The Fame Monger), Jasmine (The Australian Outback Girl), Leonard (The LARPer), Lindsay (The Ditzy Genius), Max (The Super Villain), Mitch (The Cowboy), Olivia (The Ex-Child Star), Owen (The Optimist), Rebecca (The Rebel), Rodney (The Country Boy), Scott (The Schemer), Terrance (The Jerk), and Topher (The Chris Wannabe). Not only are the challenges dangerous, but so are the accommodations. One camper deviously schemes to the finale, two more express an interest, and secrets from all over risk being revealed.

Random Drama All Stars 2 brings back the Jumbo Jet in another competition around the world, this time featuring the best sixteen competitors of the previous two seasons fighting for one million dollars once again in two teams of heroes and villains. Returning this season are B, Brick, Contessa, Courtney, Dawn, Geoff, Izzy, Jasmine, Justin, Katie, Mitch, Olivia, Owen, Rebecca, Terrance, and Topher.

Random Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race is a spin-off of the Random Drama series. This game is hosted by newcomer Don and features twenty-four teams of two - Andrew and Elliot (The Band Geeks), Angel and Bridgette (The Sweethearts), Beardo and Cody (The Outcasts), Brody and Geoff (The Bromance Bros), Broseph and Reef (The Surfer Dudes), Carrie and Devin (Best Friends), Caitlin and Wyatt (The Mallrats), Chet and Lorenzo (The Stepbrothers), Crimson and Ennui (The Goths), Dwayne and Junior (Father and Son), Ellody and Mary (The Geniuses), Emma and Kitty (The Sisters), Gerry and Pete (The Tennis Rivals), Jacques and Josee (The Ice Dancers), Jay and Mickey (The Adversity Twins), Jen and Tom (The Fashion Bloggers), Kelly and Taylor (Mother and Daughter), Laurie and Miles (The Vegans), MacArthur and Sanders (The Police Cadets), Malcolm and Noah (The Reality TV Pros), Marley and Rasta (The Slackers), Rock and Spud (The Rockers), Ryan and Stephanie (The Daters), and Steven and Tyler (The Jocks). Starting in Toronto, they must complete various challenges without being eliminated at various Chill Zones along the way. The first team to reach the final Chill Zone wins one million dollars.

The Randomverse contains examples of:

  • Adaptational Early Appearance: Many of the Revenge of the Island and Pahkitew Island characters, as well as Alejandro and the OCs from Danger Island, now appear earlier than they did in canon due to the cast shuffling: Alejandro, Amy, Kitsune, Malcolm, Mike, Sammy, Scarlett, Shawn, Sky, Staci, Sugar, Victor, and Zoey now debut in Island, Matthew debuts in World Tour, Angel, Beardo, Ella, Gary, Lily, and Natasha debut in ROTI, and Britney and Jaxon debut in PI.
  • Adaptational Heroism:
    • Lightning, while still egotistical, is shown to be much more of a team player, and even develops an Odd Friendship with Bridgette. This becomes especially apparent when he makes it to the finals in ROTI: while in canon he played the villainous brawn to the heroic Cameron's brains, here he plays the heroic brawn to Natasha's villainous brains.
    • Scarlett in World Tour does go crazy as in canon, but here it is clearly attributed to stress and the machinations of Mal, and afterwards she does whatever she can to make up for it.

  • Brains Evil, Brawn Good: The rivalry between Natasha and Lightning.
  • Break the Cutie: Scarlett is forced to deal with her twin's elimination, accidentally kissing her taken best friend, lied on by Mal, ostracized by her team, and emotionally abused by Mal. She doesn't take it well.
  • The Cameo:
    • The whole first generation (except Blaineley) appears in "Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!" Malcolm also gets an extended one by himself where he asks Chris about why they've been replaced.

  • Manipulative Bastard: Alejandro and Natasha. And to a lesser extent, Mal.
    • Alejandro fools everyone (except for Noah) into thinking he's a Nice Guy only to turn them all against each other when the mood strikes him.
    • Natasha manages to manipulate his entire team into following his plans from day one. And they all think he's mute at the time.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • Kitsune is the Japanese word for fox, and her normal outfit consists of fox ears and a tail.
    • Natasha is played as a devil in disguise, and his named spelled backwards is "Ah Satan."
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Played with. It's Heather's mistreatment of Gwen that cause Victor, Malcolm, and Noah to betray her.

  • Only Known by Their Nickname:
    • Kitsune. The majority of the cast call her this, despite her real name being revealed as Faith.
    • Lightning is another example, with Lily referring to him to a diminutive version of 'Rudolph' (Rudy), his actual name.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: Matthew is a rather villainous example. Despite being the main, and practically only antagonist in World Tour, he very quickly winds up taking a backseat to Mal about halfway through the season.

    • Harold and Scarlett are given a brother-sister relationship in the fic's universe, despite there being no indication that either of them even know of the other's existence (never mind being related) in canon.

  • Theme Twin Naming: Angel (one of the nicest girls on the island) and Lily (one of the antagonists)
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Sam, Anne Maria, and Max, who only compete in one episode each throughout the entire series.

How well does it match the trope?
