The cast of Total Drama: Tiki Jungle, or... some of it. note 
Total Drama: Tiki Jungle is the second installment in Toadgamer80's Total Drama fanfiction series, written in 2011. This story expanded on its predecessor, Total Drama School, with better-developed characters (many of whom would soon become breakout stars), plots, and humor.

The story involves 16 characters—8 returning contestants from School and 8 new faces—traveling to an uncharted island in the South Pacific known as Tiki Island to compete for a new $1,000,000 prize. While it was written while the author was in middle school, many of the characters and jokes still hold up and it stands as one of the better stories in the series. You can read it here.

This story provides examples of:

  • Arch-Enemy: Julia's sworn enemy is a guy she knows from home named Arthur, thanks to a Noodle Incident that occurred when the two were in elementary school. Naturally, Arthur is also competing, and they make the final two together.
  • Big Bad: There's a few - the original one from the previous story, Amanda, is around for a bit before being Demoted to Extra. Elena then has a sudden Face–Heel Turn, acting as the main villain for a chapter or two. But the true one is the Bitch in Sheep's Clothing Trey.

  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Right before the merge, a "mystery voter" targets well-liked contestants Octavia and Meg. Turns out it's Trey, who reveals his entire personality is a facade and he's secretly evil.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The girls' "alliance" post-merge consists of this - Helga, Chrissy, and Julia respectively.
  • Catchphrase: New contestant Arthur has two - "I'm morbidly obeeeese!" and "My peanuts are loooose!".
  • Deadpan Snarker: Formerly sweet and unassuming Helga has become bitter about her early elimination in School and spends most of this story dishing out sarcastic insults.
  • Non-Gameplay Elimination: Sharissa quits in the fifth chapter due to missing Alex, who got voted out right before her.
  • Springtime for Hitler: Team Over Nine Thousand grows so tired of continuously winning and not voting anyone off that they start actively throwing challenges, and soon, Chris outright states he's rigging the challenges so they will lose. Of course, they continue to win.
