Ultimate Ridonculous Race is an ongoing Total Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race fanfic written by TDICharlieBrown. It can be found here.

After the huge success of The Ridonculous Race, Don brings back all 18 teams who competed last season for a new race around the world. This time however, not only will they all be competing for TEN million dollars, an additional 18 teams will be joining the competition. Join 36 teams in the biggest race around the globe ever seen on reality TV with old friends (and enemies) making their grand return, new and old romances blossoming, and the drama and adventure that will be double that of last season's epic race.


This work contains examples of:

  • The Bus Came Back:
    • Amy, Sammy, Max, Brick, DJ, Leshawna, and Tyler come back to compete after not being shown for a while.
    • Chef Hatchet (and Ted the Tiger) also return as interns for Don.
  • Child Prodigy: Ry-Ry is extremely learned for a boy of Junior's age and is an avid reader of many great works of literature. However, he's also painfully shy and socially awkward, especially around girls.
  • Connected All Along: Max states that Owen is his cousin (a reference to Total DramaRama, where this is in fact canon).
  • Cool Old Lady: Both of The Tough Grannies, Cindy and Anna
  • Cuteness Proximity: Emma and Kitty succumb to this when they come across a store full of puppies in Japan.
  • The Dreaded: Max's new sidekick Zachariah terrifies just about every contestant he meets with his creepy appearance, his hulking size, and the fact that he makes Crimson and Ennui look loud and energetic.
  • Advertisement:
  • Everyone Has Standards: Kelly has always put up with Taylor's attitude, but even she can't tolerate the Internet Critics. She even told them to get a life.
  • Hate Sink: Rachel of the SJW's is meant to be this. She's completely self-righteous about her beliefs and banters anyone who's male.
  • Hypocrite: Rachel is sexist towards boys, yet she thinks that humanity is sexist towards girls.
  • Kick the Dog: Chef just wants to relax during his retirement, but it fails. As a result of Ted the Tiger eating a lot of cheese that cost a lot, Chef has to work as a intern for Don with Ted in order to pay off the cheese.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • Chef Hatchet briefly mentions potentially opening a daycare as a backup retirement plan.
    • Brick states in a confessional that he was invited to compete on Total Drama All-Stars but declined the offer, which is a reference to how he was considered for the season by the series' creators before being replaced with Sam in the final product.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed:
    • Donald of the Business Tycoons is based on pre-presidential Donald Trump, especially in his time as host of The Apprentice.
    • Internet Critics Doug and James are clearly based on Doug Walker and James Rolfe respectively.
  • Odd Friendship: Tyler and Leshawna form their own team despite having fairly little interaction with each other in the parent series.
  • One Steve Limit: DJ's partner is named Ryan, but due to the fact one of the returning competitors is already named that, he's referred to as Ry-Ry.
  • The Quiet One: Both Laurie and Zachariah show this trope. The former acts gloomy as a result of the last season, and the latter just doesn't talk.
  • Shared Universe: The fic is set in the same continuity as A Codette World Tour, another fic by the same author, and several references and characters from that story pop up.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Jay, of all people. He holds a grudge against the Sisters for sabotaging him and his brother's chances in the first season, and unlike canon, is angry and vengeful. He goes as far as to flip them off.
