This story is currently being remade.
- Androcles' Lion: Gladys' pet skunk, Stunski, saves Gladys' life after she saved him from a trap when she was younger.
- Crossover: Some of the campers from various other fanfics make appearances in a chapter to team up with the kids.
- Egg Sitting: During the fear challenge, Ivan must hold onto an egg because that is his phobia object. Naturally, it hatches, and the occupant imprints himself on Ivan.
- Frickin' Laser Beams: Used as part of the James Bond challenge, in the crotch laser style used in Goldfinger. Melody points out it's mainstream for her because she's a girl, so she gets lasers to her chest instead.
- Lethal Chef: Xylia, to an extent.
- Phantom Zone Picture: Ivan and Xylia get trapped in a painting prior to the Luigi's Mansion challenge.
Danielle: "Bad time? BAD TIME?! Do you know what happens on Total Drama when we expose our fears? We have to face them! Fire and Flames, all WITHOUT the carrying on! 30 minutes of darkness! Earthquakes! Birds and Snakes! Airplanes! Lenny Bruce not being afraid! Dead bugs rising from the grave! Nuzlocke Run Sacrifices! Cats and skunks living together, MASS HYSTERIA!"
- Ivan doesn't think Danielle (who came out without her suit on) is cute with her glasses on... He think she looks beautiful!
- Danielle's rant to Xylia about fear challenges in Total Drama is full of references to other works:
- Yellow Snow: Used a couple of times; once by Danielle to shut Yawgmoth up,and during part of a challenge.
