The first story (based off of Island) can be read here; the second (based off of World Tour, with an interdimensional twist) can be read here; and the third (which seems to have elements of Revenge of the Island) can be read here. There is also a spin off based on the Ridonculous Race, titled The Ridonculous Race: Multiverse Mayhem!, which can be read here.

The author is also open to people making plot suggestions (normally delivered through good-luck messages) and side stories (which one can usually read in the review section of the fics). These really picked up during the second story, with a writer only known as Vegetalucard arguably writing the most. Their most well-known work is "Morning Merc", which features Deadpool as a talk show host.

These stories provide examples of:

     General 
  • Adaptational Heroism: Deadpool comes off as more of a goofy idiot then the Ax-Crazy mercenary he is known for being. Even when he joins Nom Nom's alliance, he comes to later regret it.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: In both seasons she appeared in, Mandy convinced herself that she was the one running the show and she was going to backstab her allies...only for both Nom Nom and Ivy to beat her to it.
  • Expy: Deadpool is basically a male Izzy.
    • Lammy's development can be seen as nearly the same as Zoey's. Her struggles with Namora can be as the same as Mike's struggles with Mal.

    Total Drama Everything 
  • 0% Approval Rating: Nom Nom by the end of the season.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Deadpool to the author (yes, really).
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: This is why Lammy gets a crush on Yusei; he helps her whenever her shyness starts to hinder her.
  • Becoming the Mask: Deadpool is told by Nom Nom to pretend to befriend Julie in order to give them a competitive edge, but he comes to enjoy his friendship with her and wonders if he's doing the right thing.
  • Berserk Button: Nom Nom has several, most of which are related to his status as the Cutest Bear on the Internet.
  • Big Bad: Nom Nom.
  • Big Damn Kiss: Sam and Snake during the paintball challenge.
  • Birds of a Feather: Sam and Snake bond and eventually become a couple over their shared love for espionage.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Deadpool, as usual. Reaches its peak during the King of the Hill challenge, where he takes a sentence from the chapter and uses it to beat Dante senseless.
  • Break the Haughty: Happens to Nom Nom when Lammy manages to beat him during the "King of the Hill" redux, letting her go to the final two.
  • The Bus Came Back: PB and Ash, as is Total Drama tradition.
  • Buried Alive: Deadpool during "To The Breaking Point!".
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Deadpool wants to tell Julie the real reason he became friends with her, but is unable to. Ultimately, Rarity does it for him.
  • Capture the Flag: The challenge in "Fort Battle!"
  • Character Development: Lammy starts out shy and unsure of herself, but (with help from Coco and Yusei), becomes much more confident. This ultimately ends with her winning the game.
  • Chekhov's Gun: At the beginning of one chapter, Julie has to wear a pair of rubber gloves after losing a bet with Mandy. The gloves come in handy several times during the day's challenge.
  • Christmas Episode: "Walking in a Winter Snowball Land!" qualifies as one.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: Rarity covers Stan with glitter, diamonds, and other sparkly things when he pitches the Mystery Shack to her one too many times.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Both Rarity and the narrator get this when Nom Nom first appears. Rarity also gets this when she sees Pikachu, startling the Pokémon into shocking everyone currently present.
  • Damsel in Distress/Distressed Dude: Rarity and Yusei for the second challenge; the goal is to rescue them.
    • Happens again later on, with each of the final six having to rescue an eliminated camper from Boney Island.
  • Darker and Edgier: "The Murder Mystery Madhouse!" gets a T rating from the author due to the darker subject matter.
  • Dark Horse Victory: Ash wins the first part of the final 3 challenge because Lammy and Nom Nom keep sabotaging each other.
  • Disproportionate Retribution:
    • Chef got Dante eliminated simply because the half-demon wasn't affected by his intimidation tactics.
    • Fail to find love on a reality show? Chase after couples on a later season of said reality show with a sword! Really, Dave?
  • The Dreaded:
    • Everyone becomes wary of Mandy as soon as she's introduced.
    • Fang the shark is still this. Especially now that he has an upgrade that nullifies Deadpool's Healing Factor.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Just like in the original show, we get a glimpse of what every character will be like upon arriving at the dock in the first episode.
  • Face Your Fears: One of the challenges brought back.
  • False Friend: Nom Nom orders Deadpool to become this to Julie.
  • Fatal Flaw: For Nom Nom, it's his inability to believe he needs anyone but himself.
  • Flanderization: Stan goes from a savvy businessman who wants to make a quick buck and occasionally draw people over to the Mystery Shack in his home series to someone who won't shut up about the Mystery Shack and spends all his time trying to get people to visit when the game's done. This secures his early elimination.
  • Fridge Logic: Pointed out In-Universe; when Rarity styles herself with magic for the talent show challenge, the narrator wondered why she complained about losing her brush earlier.
  • Genre Savvy: Shrek is the only one who realizes that letting everyone share their fears with each other will lead to a fear-based challenge.
  • Graceful Loser: Ash congratulates Lammy when she beats him in the final challenge.
  • Hate Sink: Courtney not only acts like a jerk to most of the competitors, she also expresses strong opinions—opinions that are expected to be unpopular with the audience—on drag queens and the mentally ill.
  • Hidden Depths: Plenty are revealed during "Stuff to Keep Quiet!"
  • Honor Before Reason: Nom Nom refuses to get off of a crumbling bridge before taking down Yusei.
  • Interspecies Romance: Yusei, a human and Lammy, an anthropomorphic lamb, ultimately fall for each other.
  • Ironic Echo: Several times during the season, Nom Nom says "I always win" after succeeding in a plan or as a taunt. After she beats him in the penultimate challenge of the season, takes the second spot in the finale and gives Nom Nom the boot, what does Lammy say? "Sorry Nom Nom. I win"
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: As if Dave wasn’t crazy enough during Pahkitew Island...
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Nom Nom gets hit with this once he finally gets eliminated.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: During the second challenge, instead of waiting for Superman to use his x-ray vision on the crates to see which one has Yusei, Ash orders Pikachu to use Volt Tackle on all of them. This is part of what gets him eliminated.
  • Lemony Narrator: At times.
  • Living Lie Detector: Toph, which comes in handy when the eliminated campers try to solve a murder mystery.
  • Logical Weakness:
    • Coco's status as The Unintelligible means she pretty much automatically loses the singing challenge.
    • Toph gets dead last in the quiz challenge because she can't watch TV due to her blindness, and because her world doesn't actually have television.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Nom Nom. He orchestrates events so that PB will quit due to her fear of being eaten by Goku, plants stolen items with Maya's stuff when she becomes suspicious of his alliance, turns everyone against Mega Man when his programming causes him to lose his team a challenge, has Mandy convince everyone to vote Superman off because of his high threat level, essentially blackmails Rarity into performing sabotage before getting her eliminated anyway, uses Shrek's taste in food against him during the cooking challenge, tries to keep Lammy and Yusei apart by making them think Lammy will be a burden, tricks Mandy into believing he was oblivious to her betrayal and backstabbed her, and tricks Ash into voting against Julie by threatening Pikachu. Whoof.
  • Medium Awareness: During the King of the Hill challenge, Deadpool takes a sentence from the chapter and uses it to beat Dante senseless.
  • Musical Episode: "Total Drama Idol!", which has a singing competition as the challenge.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Deadpool's reaction when his original motives for befriending Julie are revealed to the entire camp.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • The method used to get eliminated campers off the island is the same as it was in Pahkitew Island.
    • The first challenge is the cliff-jumping challenge, just like it was the first-ever challenge on the original show.
    • The second challenge uses the mine from Revenge of the Island (with all the radioactive waste cleaned out).
    • The third challenge is a repeat of the Awakeathon from Island.
    • The talent competition is also brought back, this time with everyone participating.
    • The Face Your Fears challenge is reused (and enhanced using a virtual reality simulator).
    • The cooking competition from Island gets used.
    • "Quizzing It Up!" makes several references to past seasons of Total Drama.
    • The "I Triple Dog Dare You" challenge comes back in "Dares and Scares!"
  • No-Sell: Dante is completely unfazed by Chef's fear tactics. Chef hates him for it and later sends him home because of it.
  • Non-Gameplay Elimination: Princess Bubblegum quits out of fear that Goku might eat her. She comes back later, though.
  • Obvious Rule Patch:
    • Chris adds a new rule to the cliff-jumping challenge: no flying.
    • Superman and Mega Man are disqualified from the Awakeathon challenge (the former through a dose of Kryptonite Factor) because they don’t really need to sleep.
  • Oh, Crap!:
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Snake becomes worried when Lammy and Yusei seem unwilling to spend time with each other.
  • Paintball Episode: The challenge in "Of Shootouts and Secrets!"
  • Plot-Mandated Friendship Failure: After Rarity reveals what Nom Nom's alliance has done, Deadpool ends up losing his friendship with Julie. They manage to make up before he gets eliminated.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Snake hits his during the Smash Bros challenge, almost beating Nom Nom into a pulp before Sam stops him.
  • Rewind, Replay, Repeat: Sam does this with security footage in order to prove Snake's innocence during the murder mystery.
  • Running Gag: In the first few chapters, there's Goku being unable to help himself around Princess Bubblegum. This hurts both of them in the long run, since Nom Nom uses this to make PB quit the game.
    • Lindsay's inability to get people’s names right pops up again during the cooking challenge, though this is mostly directed at Yusei.
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: Julie uses a freebie she earned during the Mario Kart challenge to get out of doing the quiz show challenge.
  • Shipper on Deck: Coco for Lammy and Yusei.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Two of the competitors are Superman and Goku, which leads to Death Battle references throughout the story.
    • Dante and Deadpool also mention Marvel vs. Capcom 3 upon seeing each other.
    • When Chris announces a "King of the Hill" challenge, he has to tell Deadpool that it has no relation to the show.
    • Lindsay references several other Yu-Gi-Oh! characters when trying to remember who Yusei is.
    • The first post-merge challenge is essentially real-life Mario Kart.
    • In "Final Eight! Final Smash!", the challenge is Super Smash Bros..
  • Shrinking Violet: Lammy's major arc involves trying to overcome this.
  • Sitcom Archnemesis: Chef hates Dante, since his intimidation tactics don't work on the half-demon. Ultimately, when Chef is given the option to eliminate someone of his choosing, he picks Dante.
  • Skewed Priorities: Rarity is a bit overly obsessed with her appearance. This especially shows in the first few chapters.
  • Special Guest: The original competitors from Total Drama make appearances.
    • First is Cody, who is paid $5000 to be a special target during the snowball fight challenge.
    • Then there's Courtney, who becomes a judge during the singing competition as an alternative to a "lack of safety" lawsuit.
    • Heather, Owen, and Lindsay judge the cooking competition.
    • Dave during the Riftstone Mansion challenge. In their case, however, they snuck onto the island.
  • The Starscream: Mandy becomes this after Nom Nom refuses to listen to her one too many times. He eventually finds out and sends her packing.
  • Story-Breaker Power: Several of the more powerful contestants have restrictions placed upon them to make sure they don't just steamroll everyone else. The cliff-jumping challenge bans flying to prevent characters like Superman and Goku from just flying down, and the awakeathon automatically disqualifies Superman and Mega Man because they don't need to sleep. Superman is also eliminated fairly early on due to everyone else seeing him as a threat.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Mandy expresses this opinion of her team.
  • Take That!: Everyone but Goku thinks Dragon Ball Evolution sucks.
  • Talent Contest: The challenge in "Total Drama's Got Talent!"
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Zelda and Nom Nom are paired up for a challenge and pretty much refuse to cooperate.
  • Token Good Teammate: Deadpool for Nom Nom's alliance.
  • Too Dumb to Live:
    • Fred, which results in him being the first eliminated. Unlike Ash (who was forced to go with Pikachu and didn't want to electrocute the water), Double D (who fainted at the idea), and Toph (who couldn't swim, but jumped anyway), his reason for not doing the cliff-jumping challenge is because he didn't want to get his ascot wet.
    • Stan's refusal to stop pitching the Mystery Shack to the other competitors despite their repeated warnings also gets him eliminated early.
    • While Rarity does manage to warn Snake beforehand, her decision to reveal what she knows to Nom Nom sets up her eventual downfall.
    • Really, anyone who chooses to trust Nom Nom and Mandy after Rarity ousts their schemes to the competitors. Ash gets a special mention, though, for believing that the koala could actually hurt Pikachu.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: How does Nom Nom repay Superman for saving him and Yusei from falling to their deaths? Having Mandy get everyone to vote the superhero out.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Twice, when Nom Nom pushes him to the limit, Snake has to be stopped by the other competitors from killing him.
  • Wacky Racing: The Mario Kart challenge.
  • Was It All a Lie?: Julie asks this of Deadpool when the real reason he befriended her comes out, and refuses to listen to him when he tries to tell her otherwise.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Some of the early eliminations like Fred, Stan and Coco go out without contributing much to the story.
  • Wham Episode:
    • "What Are You Afraid Of?" Though people had been getting suspicious of it earlier, Rarity and Snake find out how sinister Nom Nom’s alliance really is, with the latter finding out that they have major vendettas against him, Sam, and Yusei. We also get the first hints of Deadpool's major arc for the season, and Mandy takes Connie's sword.
    • "Fort Battle!" Toph joins the anti-Nom Nom alliance and Rarity chews out Nom Nom for his manipulations, making her a target..
    • "Of Shootouts and Secrets!" Sam and Snake share a Big Damn Kiss and finally become a couple. Also, Nom Nom gets Rarity eliminated, and she uses the opportunity to oust Nom Nom's scheming to the entire camp, leaving Julie and Deadpool's friendship in shambles.
    • "Stuff To Keep Quiet!" Due to a bet between Chris and Chef, two people get eliminated: Goku (for not doing well in the challenge) and Dante (because Chef hates his guts). And the first person coming back is revealed: Princess Bubblegum!
    • "MarioKart Mayhem!" Deadpool not only loses what he thinks is his only chance to make up with Julie, but is also essentially blackmailed by Nom Nom into staying in his alliance (which means no one else is going to trust him), causing him to believe that he's completely alone.
    • "The Maze of Mazes!" Deadpool finally manages to repair his friendship with Julie...only for Nom Nom to get him eliminated.
    • "The Horrors of Riftstone Manor!" Lammy and Yusei finally become a couple...only for Nom Nom to rig the ballot so that Yusei gets eliminated. And Mandy officially becomes The Starscream.
    • "The Murder Mystery Madhouse!" Nom Nom reveals that he knew about Mandy's treachery and manages to get her eliminated, leaving the anti-Nom Nom alliance without its spy.
    • "To The Breaking Point!" Another double elimination, this time taking out Sam (who lost the challenge thanks to Nom Nom) and Snake (who convinced his friends to vote against him after his second Unstoppable Rage episode).
  • "What Do They Fear?" Episode: The "face your fears" challenge is brought back. Some of them are fears that were present in their shows (Double D and Rarity are afraid of getting dirty), while others are based off of events in their respective lives (Sam's repeated exposure to mind control of different forms on her missions leads to her being afraid of hurting her friends if it were to happen again).
  • Who Murdered the Asshole?: The plot of "The Murder Madhouse Mystery"; Nom Nom is murdered (not really) and, while the campers still in the game try to protect themselves, the eliminated campers try to figure out whodunnit.
  • X-Ray Vision: Both teams make use of this during the mine challenge; Sam with her M-Ray Contact Lenses, Superman with his natural powers.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Yusei tells this to Lammy several times over the course of the season, cementing her crush on him.

    Total Drama Everything 2 
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Leo to Julie for the first few episodes, though this is more because she's trying to avoid romance after what happened with Ben than anything bad on Leo's part.
  • Aborted Arc: Shroomy, a Foongus Story sends over to Mandy so that Ivy could teach it her pheromone trick. It looks like Ivy has plans for it...but they end up dropped after she presses Story's buttons one too many times.
  • Abusive Parents: Leo's dad forbids him from coming home unless he wins the game.
  • Achilles' Heel: Moka's canonical weakness to water. Which really doesn't help her when a challenge involves swimming.
  • Acquainted with Emergency Services: Ivy has apparently been to Arkham so many times that she knows all the guards on a first-name basis (and even wishes one a happy birthday in the confessional).
  • A Load of Bull: The final part of the Yokai Academy challenge is to battle a minotaur.
  • Alternate Identity Amnesia: Lammy doesn’t remember anything from incidents where the necklace takes over.
  • Anti-Love Song: "Love Sucks".
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: This comment from Gaz in "A Scary Case of Whodunnit":
    “We’re stuck here in this insane school, we’re being held captive by a psychotic teddy bear, we’re all told we must commit murder if we want to escape, and Ivy just keeps annoying me with her talk about everything in the greenhouse!”
  • Ascended Extra: The Animaniacs first appear to help judge a challenge. Later on, they become interns for Chris after Nom Nom leaves.
  • Ax-Crazy: Definitely Story. Putting someone in a coma and plotting to destroy a kingdom would put you in this territory.
  • Badass Boast: When Deadpool asks if Yusei knows what he’s doing when the latter goes up against Jack the Ripper, he responds:
    "No. But I'm doing it anyway."
  • Bait-and-Switch: When Ivy gets the sole vote during The Sound of Music(And Madness)! everyone thinks that she will use it to get rid of Gaz. Instead, she gets rid of Double D.
  • Battle Couple: Sonic and Ruby during the battle against Namora.
  • Berserk Button: Daxter is not a weasel, he is an ottsel! Got it?
    • For Story, don’t mess with her favorite competitor (Julie) or any character in a budding romance. Ivy learns this the hard way.

    • Blaineley on the Aftermath side of things.
  • Big Ball of Violence: Lammy and Yusei's friends get into one over their differing views of the pair's breakup during the second Aftermath.
  • Big Damn Kiss: Ruby and Sonic after the Quidditch challenge.
  • Birds of a Feather: Sonic and Ruby.
  • Both Sides Have a Point: Discussed in the second Aftermath regarding Lammy and Yusei's predicament. On the one hand, Lammy was doing what she believed to be right in the situation; on the other, she still pulled a pretty dick move when she broke up with Yusei.
  • Breather Episode: In "Killers and Koalas!", Chris takes everyone to London to relax after the…rather emotionally turbulent previous episode. Or so the contestants think.
  • Broken Base: In-Universe, there’s some contention over whether or not Lammy's actions were justified.
  • The Bus Came Back: Once again, two former competitors are brought back after the merge. This time, it's Lammy and Zelda.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: This gem from the author's notes:
    "In this exciting chapter, a demolition derby will happen in the Roman Coliseum, chariots will be destroyed, and someone is going to mercilessly ruin a precious toga.
    Basically Saturday night in Chris’ opinion."
  • Call-Back: The "capture the flag" challenge makes a comeback.
    • As does the mine challenge.
  • The Cameo: Tends to happen during interdimensional challenges:
    • Ruby's friends and sister show up during the Remnant challenge.
    • All of Moka's friends show up at least once during the Yokai Academy challenge.
    • Ron and Hermione show up to watch the Quidditch challenge. The former even takes part in it, replacing Sonic after he suffers a bludger to the head.

  • Catapult Nightmare: Gaz has one at the beginning of chapter 19.
  • Cat Fight: Ruby and Amy engage in one. With scythes and hammers.
  • Character Development: Nom Nom starts to realize that companionship is more important than he initially believed.
  • Characterization Marches On: One of Story's defining actions is her sending Ben into a coma for being a jerk. A few chapters later, she's head-over-heels in love with him. Ben even lampshades it.
  • Chekhov's Gun: After their fight, Yusei and Lammy are each sent a Luvdisc (named after the other) by Story. While they don't patch things up immediately, the Pokémon do see use during the Alcatraz challenge.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Yusei installed specific countermeasures on his bike just in case Chris tried to ride it.
  • Demonic Possession: Despite doing a pretty good job holding it off, Lammy is possessed by Namora in chapter 33.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Story loves this. Guy breaks up with you because he's acting like a jerk? Put him in a coma! The jackass father of a competitor threatens said competitor? Destroy the kingdom of said jackass father!
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Yakko and Wakko, as usual. Ivy takes advantage of it more than once.
  • Edible Ammunition: Deadpool's chariot for the derby challenge shoots chimichangas powerful enough to partially melt Mega Man's chariot.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Leo winning and being allow to return home.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Mandy had no plans to get Rarity eliminated; she only swapped her outfit in the fashion challenge with Gaz's because she was planning on humiliating Gaz (and though Rarity would be able to fix it quickly).
    • Lammy's harsh breakup with Yusei was enough to make Chris–the poster boy for sadist reality show hosts–cry.
      • He also cuts Dante's pay in half when he breaks his agreement not to truly hurt anyone while disguised as Jack the Ripper.
    • After using her pheromone dust on Jak, Ivy goes to the confessional to let his girlfriend know that what she did was purely for the game.
  • Everyone Can See It: Despite the denial on both sides, everyone can see that Gaz and Double D have a crush on each other.
  • Expy:
    • Everyone comes to the conclusion that Mandy and Gaz are this to each other, which infuriates the former.
    • The unofficial Honest Trailer gives Po the label "Badass Owen".
    • Despite not competing, Story comes off as this season's version of Sierra.
  • Face Palm: Harry, upon learning Amy stole his invisibility cloak.
  • Fatal Flaw: Ivy has a tendency to underestimate her opponents. This is most pronounced in her reactions to Story's threats; she believes that the fangirl is all bark and no bite...until said fangirl shows up on the plane and mauls her with a Zoroark.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Namora seems to think that her ultimate fate, being imprisoned in a bottle and given to Story, is this.
  • Final Boss: Batman acts as the final challenger during the show's trip to Gotham City. Whoever gets the million dollar case off his back wins the money, but he has access to all of his gadgets to prevent that from happening.
  • Foodfight!: Yusei and Nom Nom initiate one during chapter 5.
  • Foreshadowing:
    • There are hints towards Julie's break-up with Ben before she officially reveals it.
    • "I've been around numerous supervillains, and they have a habit of backstabbing their allies."
  • Frame-Up: Ivy frames Nom Nom by claiming he may have helped with her plan to eliminate Sonic, causing him to lose Yusei's trust.
  • Genre Savvy: Even after confessing to each other, Gaz and Double D decide not to become a couple yet, since Ivy's done her best to take out most of the other couples in the game.

  • Greater-Scope Villain: Namora, the woman that resides in Lammy's necklace.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Yusei post-"Heartbreak in the Big Apple!"
  • He Knows Too Much: Ivy gets Toph eliminated when she discovers her schemes.
  • Heroic Sacrifice:
    • Connie pulls one during the safari challenge so that all the other competitors can get away from the lion.
    • During the Quidditch challenge, Sonic takes a bludger to the head for Ruby.
    • Nom Nom keeps Yusei from getting eliminated after the mine challenge by offering himself in the duelist's place.
    • Even with her weakness to water and torn diving suit, Moka is willing to dive into water to win a challenge for her and her partner.
  • Hero of Another Story: Whenever she sends a good-luck message to a competitor, Story can be seen having her own adventures in the background.
  • Hypocrite: Story is not a huge fan of Ivy or her schemes, yet she pulled a page from the villainess' playbook in her plot to make Ben hers.
  • The Intern: Nom Nom becomes this, as his life has apparently gone downhill after the first season.
  • Interspecies Romance: Ruby, a human and Sonic, a hedgehog.
  • I Owe You My Life: Why Nom Nom decided to become an intern; he feels that he owes a debt to Lammy and Yusei that he can never repay.
  • Irony:
    • Fashionista Rarity ends up losing the fashion challenge (thanks to sabotage, but still).
    • During the third aftermath, Blaineley impersonates Zelda in order to win a spot on the show. After Zelda catches her, she ends up with a reward, namely returning to the game.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Thanks to Character Development, Nom Nom is becoming this. He ends up being the one to snap Yusei out of his romantic woes when friendly concern doesn’t work.
  • Kill and Replace: Well, kidnap and replace, but this is what Story tries to do to Ben.
  • Last Kiss: When it looks like they're about to die during the haunted house challenge, Gaz kisses Double D.

  • Life Drain: Moka gets this power during the Lyoko challenge.
  • Loony Fan: Story, if her good-luck messages are any indication.
  • Lunacy: One of the teams is dubbed "The Mysterious Moons".
  • Manipulative Bitch: Ivy follows in Nom Nom’s footsteps in this regard. She purposefully fails to complete the first challenge to get a veteran eliminated; tricks Ash during a challenge so her team can win and he can get sent home; manipulates Po (first with her pheromones and then with his love of food) during Capture the Flag; gets everyone to vote off Toph when she discovers her schemes; brainwashes Jak so that he tanks a challenge; brainwashes Double D into convincing his team to vote Julie off; tries to take Ruby out with a bludger during the Quidditch challenge (Sonic gets hit instead, which was just as good); frames Nom Nom for helping with the bludger incident (causing him to lose Yusei's trust); tells Mandy to devirtualize her during the Lyoko challenge, then tells her team that Mandy did it because she was blinded by rage; uses her charm (as well as Wakko's weakness for pretty woman) to find out about Mega Man's mission and manipulates him into giving her invincibility so she can easily take him out; and brainwashes Yusei when he doesn't accept her request to form an alliance. And the season isn't finished yet.
  • Master of Illusion: Mandy's main power during the Lyoko challenge.
  • Milestone Celebration: In-Universe; Deadpool organizes one to celebrate one year of Total Drama Everything.
  • Mind over Matter: Double D's main power during the Lyoko challenge.
  • Mind Screw: The good-luck message Yusei gets advising him to forgive Nom Nom (which is heavily implied to have come from Nom Nom himself).
  • Moment Killer: Deadpool ruins the moment during Ruby and Sonic's first kiss.
  • Mood Whiplash: Story’s second good luck message to Leo starts out somewhat serious, advising him on what to do about Julie's rejection...then Pikahuna the Alolan Raichu comes in asking about her plans to "Utterly Destroy the Nohr Kingdom".
  • Musical Episode: Being based off of World Tour, this is a musical season.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Lammy feels this after she hurts Yusei during the New York challenge.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Deadpool's impromptu visit to Nohr is what causes Leo's dad to force an ultimatum onto him: win the game or don’t come home at all.
  • Non-Gameplay Elimination: Connie quits due to injuries she sustained during a challenge.
  • Noodle Incident: Most of Story's adventures. For example, why was she on the Millenium Falcon with what was presumably a kidnapped person?
  • Odd Friendship: Double D, who lives for things like logic and normality, befriends Harry, a wizard, and Moka, a vampire.
  • Offscreen Breakup: Julie and Ben.
  • Oh, Crap!: Everyone's reaction to the fact that Lammy is returning to the competition.
  • Once Done, Never Forgotten: Dante is not going to live down throwing Yusei into a bus anytime soon.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: A few people become suspicious when Lammy full-on laughs at Yusei when he wears a toga for a challenge. This ends up being our early warning sign that worse breaks in character are going to happen.

  • Persona Non Grata: Deadpool's not allowed in the Tower of London after something involving a chicken.

  • Playing with Fire: Gaz's main power during the Lyoko challenge.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Lammy doesn't want to burden Yusei with her problems regarding the necklace, seeing as he already did so much for her last season. This...doesn't end well.
  • Prank Call: The Aftermath crew pulls one on Chris, sending the plane to a remote village in the Alps.
  • Rage Against the Author: And the readers. Let’s just say Deadpool isn’t happy that he won't be returning to the game.

  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Most of the Pokémon used for the battle challenge.

  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Downplayed, but Mega Man is given a box of items and a list of instructions from X in order to make things easier for people.

  • Show Within a Show: The Aftermath, this time hosted by Sam and Snake.
  • Side Bet: The Moons have one surrounding Double D and Gaz in chapter 13. Deadpool wins, much to everyone's detriment.
    • Yusei and Nom Nom have one in "Crazy Safari Photo Shoot!" on whether or not Leo and Julie will finally hook up. Yusei wins.
  • Sitcom Archnemesis: Mandy hates Gaz, while Gaz doesn’t really care about Mandy...at first. Their rivalry becomes more serious later on.

  • Special Guest: Dante helps out with the London challenge.
    • Snake, Cynder, and Deadpool show up to even the teams out during the Quidditch challenge.

    • Everyone returns to help fight Namora along with Lammy and Yuesi's friends and Story.
    • Batman shows up to help out with the final challenge. Harley Quinn also shows up to cheer for Ivy(since no one in game was rooting for her)

  • That Wasn't a Request: Ivy brainwashes Yusei when he refuses her alliance proposal.
  • Too Dumb to Live: History repeats itself when Mandy doesn’t pick up the hints from Gaz or various good-luck messages that Ivy is going to betray her. Nor does she believe Gaz when she tells her outright.
  • Villain Song: Ivy gets one in "Watch Out". This is actually invoked by Chris. She gets another called "Surprise" during the song contest.
  • "The Villain Sucks" Song: The eliminated and non-competing contestants sing a song named after Poison Ivy, singing about how much they want to see her take the Drop Of Shame.
  • Wacky Racing: Three words: chariot demolition derby!
  • Wham Episode: "Bayou Blues!", which reveals Nom Nom's real reasons for becoming an intern. It’s also one In-Universe, if the first Aftermath is any indication.
    • "Rose vs Rose!" The necklace might be sentient, evil, and corrupting Lammy, Deadpool starts becoming concerned about Julie's interactions with Leo and decides to intervene, and the challenge is the first inter-dimensional one of the season.
    • "Snowy Surprises and Switches!" Lammy and Double D switch teams, Lammy attacks Deadpool, but doesn’t seem to remember it (and it’s heavily implied that this happened because of her necklace), and Julie reveals that she broke up with Ben between seasons, which is why she acts cold towards Leo.
    • "Heartbreak in the Big Apple!" Hoo boy. Just when it looks like things are getting back to normal for Lammy and Yusei, she knocks him off his jet ski during the challenge. She gets eliminated because of this...and ends up breaking up with Yusei via a note she leaves before going, since she believes she's doing him more harm than good. Also, Mega Man is given advice from X that might help him out in the future.
    • "Killers and Koalas!" Ivy and Mandy form an alliance (which Gaz quickly discovers), Mega Man is informed of Ivy’s schemes by Toph thanks to X's warning, and Deadpool learns about Ivy's manipulations, Lammy's necklace, and the mutual attraction between Double D and Gaz thanks to a good luck message, which also marks the first appearance of Story.
    • The "Best Day Ever!" bonus chapter is a downplayed example of this, but it seriously raises the stakes on Leo's side of things: either he wins the prize money, or he can't go home or date Julie.
    • The "Pranks and Problems" bonus chapter is also one. Mostly because it’s our first glimpse of what Lammy’s been up to since her elimination.
    • "Shocks in Showbiz!" Julie gets voted off thanks to Ivy, Ruby and Sonic are forbidden from spending time with each other when their mutual crush lowers their performance in the game, and Ivy reveals her plot to eliminate Mandy...with only Gaz–the person Mandy's been fighting with the most–around to hear it.
    • "Rivalries, Love, and Quidditch!" Ivy wrecks Nom Nom and Yusei's friendship by framing him for her and Mandy's plan to eliminate Sonic. Also, Sonic and Ruby officially become a couple.
    • "Revenge of the Mine!" Yusei is saved from elimination by Nom Nom, who quits his job as an intern in exchange for his staying in the game. Meanwhile, Gaz finally gives up on trying to warn Mandy about Ivy.
    • "Ultimate Lyoko Showdown!" Ivy puts her plan into motion and double-crosses Mandy, sending her packing; Mandy and Gaz battle in an epic showdown, with Gaz emerging as the winner; crazy fangirl Story arrives to exact vengeance on Ivy for her manipulations (delivered through a rather powerful Zoroark); and Chris gets three new interns in the form of none other than the Warner Brothers (and sister!).
    • "Dracula's Giant House Of Horror!" Gaz and Double D finally confess their feelings for each other.
    • "The Sound of Music(And Madness)!" After Ivy cheats to win a challenge, along with the sole vote to eliminate someone, Gaz blows up on her. This leads everyone to think that Ivy will send Gaz home. Instead, Ivy gets rid of Double D in order to demoralize Gaz. However, Double D was prepared for this and leaves Gaz a note, telling her to keep fighting, causing Gaz to team up with Leo and Ruby to get rid of Ivy. At the same time, Lammy nearly jumps out of the plane in desperation from whatever her necklace is doing to her. While she insists everything is fine, that plus a dream everyone but her had has left everyone suspicious.
  • Wham Line: We're through.
    • Story's message to Julie in "Gotta Catch Em All or Not!" is mostly her restating the stuff she told Deadpool. Then this happens:
    [She holds up a picture of a blonde in a red dress.]
    Story: This woman managed to escape...somehow. And she left a note swearing revenge. Be prepared.note 
    • The good people at Aftermath spin a wheel to see who the author chose to put back on the competition. We aren't able to figure out who it is (only hearing everyone's reactions), until Goku says this:
    "Yusei's going to go ape when he finds out."
    • At the end of "Insanity on the Rock!", Ivy invites Yusei to first class so that she can form an alliance with him. Knowing what happened to Mandy, he quickly refuses, only for her to drop this bombshell:
    "Sorry, but I’m afraid I wasn’t asking." [blows pheromone dust in his face]
  • Yandere: Story qualifies as this. Ax-Crazy? Check. Plans on stalking a boy? Check. Kidnaps said boy (as well as his ex-girlfriend who has since moved on) with plans to alter their memories and outright brainwash the former? Checkaroo.

    Total Drama Everything 3 
  • 0% Approval Rating: Vicky's attitude and actions end up leading to her being the first person to get eliminated.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Vicky desperately wants to be the main villain of the season. Unfortunately, her teammates quickly realize that keeping her would be highly detrimental to them and vote her off on the first night.
  • Birds of a Feather: Platonic version with Carmen and Sly; the two bond over being Robin Hood-style thieves.
  • Call-Back:
    • When Sly first shows up, Deadpool remembers the time he showed up on the plane during the cast's Christmas celebration (still believing he was going to steal something).
    • Po's introduction has him getting stuck while trying to exit his boat and requiring other contestants to pull him out. This calls back to his initial introduction the season before, where he got stuck in a taxi and had to be pulled out.
  • Costume Evolution: Several cast members have been updated to match their most recent incarnations:
    • In 2, Ruby used her appearance from Volumes 1-3 of RWBY. As a Time Skip has occurred since then, Ruby now wears her updated outfit from Volumes 4-6.
    • Connie now has shorter hair and a new sword, matching her appearance from Season 5.
  • For the Evulz: Why Vicky tries to get Webby kicked off the first chance she gets. Unsurprisingly, her teammates vote her off as a result.
  • Foregone Conclusion: Deadpool's plot of trying to get Snake Eyes to talk is doomed to fail as Snake Eyes is mute.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Vicky spends most of the first episode trying to get Webby kicked off the team, even directly sabotaging her near the end of the challenge to do so. Because of everyone seeing her sabotage and her constant gloating, Vicky ends up being unanimously voted off by her entire team including Webby, the very contestant she tried to get voted off to begin with, and ends up being the first eliminated as a result.
  • Never Heard That One Before: Carmen's reaction to everyone joking that they "found" her.
  • Reality Ensues: After two seasons of having to deal with people like Nom Nom, Ivy, and Namora, no one on Vicky's team is interested in dealing with another villain (especially one who doesn't even try to be subtle about it) and vote her off on the first night.
  • Schmuck Bait: Vicky shamelessly gloats over getting a message... only for hers to be of Timmy throwing a party with a bunch of other kids (and Cosmo and Wanda) and telling her that they don't miss her at all and are rooting for anyone but her.

    The Ridonculous Race: Multiverse Mayhem! 
  • Casanova Wannabe: Murdoc hits on Callie and Marie. He gets a black eye for his trouble.
  • Expy: Callie and Marie to Emma and Kitty from the previous Ridonculous Race. Both have the word Sisters in their team names(although with Callie and Marie, it's their idol duo name. They are really cousins), there is one serious one (Marie and Emma respectively) and one fun loving one (Callie and Kitty respectively). Best shown that in the first challenge, which was a rehash of the one from the orignal race, Callie and Marie are the last to finish the skywalk because Callie wanted to take in the view, which earns her a scolding from Marie, which happened with Kitty and Emma. They even end up on the same flight(the second one).
  • Foil: Phineas and Ferb act as this to previous Ridonculous Race competitors Chet and Lorenzo, who also went by the title "The Stepbrothers". The difference is that Phineas and Ferb get along perfectly fine from the start, while Chet and Lorenzo initially had a Sibling Rivalry.
  • Mythology Gag: In the first episode, Jamie asks if Phineas and Ferb are a little young to be competing in the race.
  • Sibling Team: Sam and Dean, Phineas and Ferb (though they're stepbrothers instead of actual brothers).

  • Hate Sink: Deadpool has Dolores Umbridge as a guest in one episode of "Morning Merc", and is just about ready to shoot her by the end of it.
