Top 10 Best Total Drama Characters

The Top Ten

1 Duncan Duncan

"I like Duncan cause of his sneaky, rebel, manipulative ways. "

You wouldn't like that dumbass is he acted in those ways to you. I hate him because of his delinquency, especially since, I've deal with people like him before. Jerks like him make me wish that they never existed. Hell, I really hate what he did to Harold. But I'm glad that nerd got back at him for all the crap that he gave him. Why, that makes me wish I could get back at all the bullies who picked on me a lot.

Duncan is the cool one you know! I was so excited when he beat Beth to the million dollars in 💰Total Drama Action

I really really like Duncan. He's without a doubt my favorite and most iconic character of the series. He's like the "main protagonist" and breakout character of the Total Drama series. He has a great character development through the series and it's really funny how he wants to keep his "bad-boy" style even though a softer and nicer side of him keeps emerging. His relationship with Courtney is without a doubt the most well built up and thoroughly developed in the entire series. I was really sad to see them grow apart on World Tour and later on, but I can always hope for more of them on later seasons (Seriously, they're like Ross and Rachel from FRIENDS. No matter how many times they break up, they always get back together). He has a seriously amazing and badass style that made me want to watch more of him out of all the contestants. He is the reason I started watching and loving the show in the first place. So that is why S4, S5 (2nd part) and Spin-Off were not my ...more

I had a huge crush on him when I was a kid, I still do now at 16! This may shock people but Canadian high schools are like American ones on HBO, with more sex, and I'm one of the unfortunate kids who is bullied constantly to the point where I've had to file a restraining order. Despite being cast out by my classmates I can actually see myself getting along with Duncan just fine. A lot of my interests are considered to be dangerous by the norm of society, basically I'm a lot like Gwen. He's the kind of guy who I could easily respect, and he just might be like my guy friends and stand with me in a time of need. The biggest difference is that he's more intimidating (no offense guys). - KimikoYukimura

I don't really like Duncan he was good in island and then he became a not very good character after that - TomWebb07

2 Gwen Gwen

Gwen is awesome! She is even better then Duncan. She is stylish and smart and she knows how to beat a challenge. I hate Courtney when she's trying to beat Gwen up because she kissed Duncan, but I wish Courtney would just shut up because she is annoying and talks too much and complains about EVERYTHING. I think that Gwen should have won in the first show, "total drama island" because even though Owen is "funny" he is just annoying and smelly and I actually like Owen because he knows how to put people in a good mood. But usually he is annoying and loud and stupid, and he didn't deserve to win the competition because Gwen was right in front of the finish line and Izzie Cheated and put a plate of brownies in front of a fan so Owen could beat Gwen. That should be considered cheating because the contestants shouldn't receive help in the final challenge! Gwen is my favorite person because she is a realistic version of a person who struggled in life, yet again a bit of a cliche. Goth girl. ...more

Totes like ma sister goth girl

She's the best character Heather is always after her but she knows how to deal with it

She's a strong girl

3 Heather Heather

When I first started watching this show I hated Heather, but then the more I watched the more I began to like her. She may be mean and bossy but could you imagine how different the show would be without her? - Spongehouse

She was an awesome character on Total Drama World Tour. I love the finale where she won the big prize and expulse Alejandro from the game as an anti-hero.

Heather is the best character and most real

I liked World Tour Heather - 23windomt

4 Owen Owen

Why is Owen #4 instead of number #1? Sure, Duncan is #1 and he won a season before, but Owen won Total Drama Island, which was the best season! Have you seen the remixes? Owen is #1 in a lot of them! Even missing out on Total Drama All-Stars was a good thing because Total Drama All-Stars contestants (except Mike, Zoey, Gwen, Cameron, Alejandro and Heather) were trapped in balloons, weren't freed, and got blown away to the sun! Because that never happened to Owen, he was able to compete in The Ridonculous Race! He's awesome! GO OWEN!

You know what is funny is that the final four on total Drama island, Owen, Gwen, Heather and Owen are the top four best total drama characters.

Owen is a really great character. I was really glad when he got to win TDI. He should be able to be in season 8.

See Owen is basically OP like he never makes enemies or decives anyone and nobody ever worries about him and anyone on the show would vote anybody else but him off the show, he is unbeatable

5 Noah Noah

Noah was okay in the first season but when he returned they just made him such a good character, his popularity is also boosted by the stupidest results to challenge ever, I mean Noah and Owen did what they were supposed to but the girls (And Cody) still won when they caught Duncan. Not only do fans hate his elimination in world tour but it makes some hate Duncan in return. I guess you could say they didn't think he could hold his ground on his own but with Owen there I see London is not only one of the funniest episodes but we actually see how Noah is by himself. He's also learning from past mistakes, in TDI he didn't try but in world tour he is a team player and I do hope he competes again. - Gronk27

Wait was noah in the top ten for smartest total drama contestants

Sarcastic as hell and I love it

Noah is basically the fan favourite during and after world tour! He is also a great character in general! - TomWebb07

I like how Noah basically owns every scene we see him in. His interactions with the other characters who aren't as sarcastic and serious are amazing. But I don't like him in Ridonculous Race when he loses because he has a crush on Emma. Otherwise, he's pretty cool.

6 Courtney Courtney

Worst td character of all time she should not be on the list or DEAD LAST people

She does things for a reason, it's not like she does them for no reason, they're not always great decisions but look at it from her perspective also most of it is done as a joke, I just hope she gets more development.

One of the most realistic characters because of her flaws throughout the series, her flaws are very human. You guys know it's true so leave us Courtney fans alone!

Courtney is not given enough credit, she is a great character especially for a show like total drama

7 Bridgette Bridgette

Bridgette is my favourite character! She's kind and smart, and her clumsiness makes her even more relatable.

! She is one of my favorite total drama characters

I like her clumsiness. Also she is the prettiest total drama character in my opinion. - UltraLunalaX

I love Bridgette so much! She was way better performing in Total Drama Island than the other 2 seasons she had performed. In Island, it was awesome so see that she was a cool and chill person. She was excellent athletic abilities despite being clumsy at times, and performed very well. But I hope she can compete in the future and make it farther to the merge this time or to the final 2. The two seasons she had competed, Action and World Tour was not very good for her because she kept making out with Geoff (only appearing in 2 episodes, excluding aftermaths) and 4 or 5 episodes in World Tour because of Alejandro (again, excluding the aftermaths, I know that she has to be in the aftermaths but she doesn't have to be in all of them because she was qualified to compete in WT while Geoff didn't and I wish they can show her actually surfing in the competition. She has so much to offer for her character in Total Drama but she didn't reach her potential yet. It's time for her to show what has ...more

8 Lindsay Lindsay

Lindsay is the best character by far. Her "dumb blonde" persona is played off perfectly with a little bit of an edge. For being dumb, she has a sense of wit that outmaneuvers even the smartest contenders at times. Her pure innocence just captures your heart.
She is the comic relief most of the time but name one time you hated her... Even when admiral Lindsay her hotness was annoyingly cute.

Shes literally iconic

Dumb but cute

Lindsay is one of the funniest characters along with Justin - Spongehouse

9 Cody Cody

Cody's elimination in TDI didn't put him in the top ranks of the contestants in terms of popularity but you'll rarely find someone who hated him. When he came back in World Tour people were like, "Yeah, you know what? Cody deserves a second chance." and as time passed more and more people found themselves cheering for him. Cody's jump to popularity came from some very clever dialogue, a good personality, and of course a heroic role when surrounded by so many villains and crazy people. He should've been in All-Stars... And won! But then again maybe that would have hurt his popularity more than it would have boosted it.

He said Barbecue Chips were the king of chip flavors. He deserves number one.

Cody, in my opinion, is THE best Total Drama character. He's funny, quirky, and fell in love with a stalker.


10 Alejandro

He looks like poop

I would bang him

He is just so cool and funny like me.

Alejandro was so hilarious! I get why people hate him but he's funny


The Contenders

11 Izzy Izzy

I like her. She is funny and says some of the most random things ever. That's why I like her. - UltraLunalaX

The 1-5 one was one of my favorites but she now stinks in season 8

You gotta love Izzy!

She says and does some of the most randomest and wild things. Which makes her hilarious - Spongehouse

12 Dawn

She is awesome! She can read auras and was totally eliminated too early! :( She knew about Scott and tried to take leadership for her team. Plus, the other characters reactions to her makes me laugh

She should be in 1

Dawn is a great character. She should deserve more screen time on the show. She was eliminated WAY to early. She's a great character though!

Gotta love Dawn. So nice, easygoing and caring. I don't like Scott, he eliminated Dawn. I don't have high hopes of her winning, but I still like her.

13 Mike Mike

To be honest, I use to be a Duncan and Gwen fan. But Duncan has changed a lot since he first appeared for the worst. Then Revenge of the Island brought a new cast. Make is the one who made me like the new cast. And just when I thought I couldn't like Mike more than I do when he appeared in Revenge of the Island, he came back for All-Stars. I was happy to see him come back! He is hilarious and kind. And he is very quirky. I love all of his alternate personalities--ESPECIALLY Mal. He made the All Stars season interesting. He constantly is having inner conflicts on top of the crazy challenges Chris comes up with. Mike deserves to be the best. And I hope we haven't seen the last of him and his other personalities--including the Malevolent One!

Mal is his best personality fight me

Mike needs to win All-Stars. Seriously, at LEAST top 3. He has all of the good qualities of Cody, being his teeth, casanova tendencies (Vito), bravery (Manitoba), and humor (Chester and himself), and then some. (Cody's my favorite original character, by the way.)

He is so overrated - Spongehouse

14 Harold Harold

He is obviously one of the best characters on this show - Spongehouse

Harold should really be higher on the list, his performance in tda proves he's not just a scrawny nerd and can contend with Duncan and Courtney in these types of things.

Harold is a gam,er

Harold is going to use his mad skills to get higher on the list - Spongehouse

15 Zoey Zoey

She is kinda bland - TomWebb07

I personally find her very annoying but I respect opinions. - Spongehouse

What? Zoey is 13th place?! She is the prettiest, most thoughtful person ever! She's amazing at parkour, and SUPER cute. She is nerdy (in a way), and doesn't care what other people think. She is a red-headed, nerdy version of Sky the awesome.

I Love Zoey because she is super nice, a good friend and she the most beautiful girl in Universe! To me she is an angle from Haven send here to help the world! Zoey

16 Leshawna Leshawna

She is so funny to watch!

Needs to at least be top 10, please!

Once I saw the show she was my favorite and the drama she had with Heather and love with harold

Without a doubt my favorite character. So sassy and bootalicicous. She definitely needs to come back for another season. First of all, she has some unfinished business with Harold, and second of all, when she was unfairly eliminated on TDI, TDA and TDWT was her redemption. But unfortunately every time Leshawna played the game, she did worse in worse. (Season 1: 5th, Season 2, 8th, Season 3, 15th). Definitely needs to come back.

17 DJ

I approve of his refusal from eating dolphin-dogs in Total drama island. I also like Bridget for that. Who cooks dolphins? They're the innocent souls of the ocean. The only complaint I have against DJ is his co-operation with Duncan and Geoff against Harold. Sure, it's Harold's fault, but teaming up with Duncan? You can do better than that.

How is DJ at number 17? He is literally the nicest character on the show. He deserved a spot in All-Stars, maybe that would've made a disappointing season a bit better. The only thing I have to complain about his character is how unfair everyone of his eliminations were in the first three seasons. His elimination in World Tour is one of the only complaints I have about that season, but it made sense. After that, I was never a big Alejandro fan, but he's still a good villian.

His high pitched voice always makes me want to laugh - Spongehouse

DJ is the nicest

18 Chris McLean Chris McLean Chris McLean is a fictional character from the Total Drama Island series as the official host who makes the campers perform a series of challenges for immunity ranging from often humiliating to dangerous.

Monokuma, this is all

Kidz Bop Monokuma

The perfect host for this show - Spongehouse

The Monokuma of this show

19 Trent Trent

My favorte character

Kind, calm, and plays guitar. One of my favorites. I hope he returns to the show one day. - Smash64

Trent on Island was a pretty cool dude. He was that laid back, sane character that made the madness around him more evident because of his comments on the matter. What they did to him in Action was horrible character derailment and my opinion is shouldn't have happened, but Island Trent was definitely a guy I rooted for.

He and Gwen were cute, fun and just brought a light touch to TDI, which admittedly is my only canon season.

Trent is okay. When Trent and Heather kissed I was so mad at him. even though it was Heathers fault he could have backed away but he stayed

20 Ella

Bo! Sorry I couldn't help myself - Spongehouse

Ella's great no question

^You wish that Ella's amazing. She's deluded, for cryin' out loud! Even though she was able to charm a bear with her song, she's still too black and white for my taste. Therefore, she's better off givin' up on her excessive optimism. Besides, I'm no longer an optimist. Instead, I'm a pessimist an' proud of it.

Ella is amazing. Adorable and has an interesting personality

21 Scott

He's funny! - Spongehouse

I like scott beacause he always does stupid things

I love the fact that he wants to play the game to win, by any means necessary. He is a villain and what I like about him is that he loves being a villain. He doesn't care if you don't like him because he doesn't like you either.

That bird that looks like him and laughs like him made me laugh so hard I fell off the couch

22 Geoff

I just love my geoff

"You pich a tent like a guy" LOL - Spongehouse

So underrated.

He's so chill, relaxed, knows how to have a good time and cheer people up! Example 1: He cheered Gwen up and made her a party person even in his last episode! Example 2: He made Bridgette that really sweet heart shaped jar (even if it was a bit corny it was still so cute! ). Example 3:He's VERY loyal and sticks up for his friends. Example 4: He risked being kicked out of the guys alliance by not voting against Bridgette like the rest of them, just to make her happy. In the end Bridgette went home and Geoff had to sleep outside the boy's cabin hanging in a tree. Example 5: In Total Drama: The Ridonculous Race, he refused to save 'princesses' because he didn't want to make Bridgette upset! I MEAN HOW CUTE IS THAT!?!?!? please VOTE FOR HIM because HE'S AMAZING, CUTE, SWEET, THOUGHTFUL, CHILLED, KIND AND I COULD GO ON! HE SHOULD BE FIRST BUT HE'S NOT SO please MAKE HIM FIRST!

23 Cameron

The "Iron Boy" suit he made to beat Lightning was awesome. The Cameron ending should not have been the alternate one. - KeyboardHero

Cameron is awesome he is the under dog and should have won

What no he should be in at least top 15

I love him. He has never gotten voted off

24 Chef Hatchet Chef Hatchet

Hands down the funniest character and my second favorite. It's a disgrace that he is this low! - Spongehouse

This guy is way too funny! Cool, sadistic and down-right evil.

Why is this cool guy so low? - girlcool

Lol I love Chef, he's so funny! - DragonPrincess1

1 Comment
25 Tyler

Love this guy!

Tyler is a really epic character! Though I kinda feel bad for him since he is always getting hurt - Spongehouse

Just Awesome!

He needed more screen time super funny

26 Brick

At your service! - TomWebb07

How can anyone hate Brick? He is a very honorable guy - Spongehouse

Total Drama is a show filled with good and bad characters. The are people who are amazing, but if there is one character(in my opinion) that comes close to being almost perfect, it would definitely be Brick. He has almost all of the qualities of a great Total Drama character. He's nice, funny, heroic, a team player, he's even sympathetic in some ways. He got eliminated for SAVING LIVES. HOW IS THAT NOT AMAZING IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM?!?!?! Brick should've been in All Stars, and he will forever be my favorite character of this franchise.

Because Brick is awesome and funny and if anybody was a hero on Revenge of the island, it would be BRick because he gave up immunity to save Cameron, Mike and Zoey!

27 Shawn

Shawn is AWESOME! He's so cool and really funny. I like that he and Jasmine got together in the end and how he actually did decide to split the money with her. They are so cute together.

Shawn is awesome! My 3rd Favourite Contestant! I think it's funny how he believes in the zombie apocalypse, he's got some amazing skills and his armpit serenade was epic! I also loved his relationship with Jasmine and I hated Amy coming back in 'A Blast From The Past' and ruining it! If she didn't come back, Shawn wouldn't be hiding and Jasmine wouldn't be angry with her!

Shawn was by far the best character ever to play this game. I wanted him to win right from the start. I liked how he believes in that zombie apocalypse thing. And by the way MY name is Shawn.

Shawn is amazing he has some wicked survival skills and deserves Jasmine. They are perfect for each other. The zombie thing I can understand. He also has a pretty good armpit serenade

28 Sierra Sierra

She is hilarious and needs to be higher.

She's really fun to watch. To bad she's really overhated.

Funny but annoying - JazzyJulie

10/10 best binch

literally lifts 300lb and drugs her boyfriend

29 Sky

I know this is an unpopular opinion, but Sky is my second favorite character (after Cody). With this list, I now know that others like Sky, too. After seeing her first interaction in TDPI, offering Max gum, I knew she was a really kind character. She is also very confident, and a great team leader. I'm so glad she made it to the finals, and I wish she won (in my country Shawn wins). I know she's a bad match with Dave, but losing the boy she liked at a million dollars must not be her day. I try to forget about the fact that Shawn won, and keep watching the alternate ending, the ending where Sky won. I don't understand why so many people hate her.

She is one of the blandest - TomWebb07

I know that this may be an unpopular opinion but she is the prettiest, and my all time favorite total drama character. she became the new zoey, she used to be my favorite character but ever since pahkitew island she has had the most amazing personality and has become my number one pick. She should be number one on this list.

Sky is my overall favourite character from Pahkitew Island. I know this is an unpopular opinion because people usually say Samey, Ella, Shawn and Jasmine. But I liked how Sky had her quirks but she was still normal. And this may be an unpopular opinion but I loved Skave! I ignore the final episode and the episode where Dave got out because he went a little overboard for Sky. I still love Sky and I hope she returns as long all the top 8 of that season for another one.

30 Ezekiel

I wish they hadn't turned him into Gollum in World Tour. Still my fave, though. - Dolph63

Ezekiel is just a poor boy from a poor family

I love Ezekiel I wish he would return back to normal

Mistreated makes me love him

31 Jasmine

Best character on TDPI - Ar0nT0pTeNz05

The only good character in Pahiktew Island - Spongehouse

Jasmine is amazing. I thought she would've gone at least runner up but oh well. GO JASMINE!

She's nice, and so tall and pretty! Plus, her voice is awesome and she has survival skills!

32 Mr. Coconut

Coconut inside of me




33 Justin

Justin is one of the best, yet commonly overlooked classic characters from the original cast. Most of this damage comes from his lack of significance in season one, but he really redeemed himself in the finale, and then with his role in TDA, he really distanced himself from being forgotten, and made up for his previous unimportance in all ways. Justin is a charming, funny, and manipulative player, who's stunning good looks brought him fame in the second season. Unlike Alejandro, (AKA the lesser Justin), Justin is portrayed as being sort of dim-witted, and having to hide his stupidity behind his appearance, making him a bit more balanced and less Mary Sue-ish than Alejandro. Not trying to throw too much shade Al's way, as he's still a good character, but Justin has always been a step above him on the likability meter. Another great thing I like about Justin is his tendency of losing his shirt. He's very attractive and well-deserving of the love of every girl and Owen on the show. ...more

He never fails to make me laugh - Spongehouse

Great Season 2 villain

His sexy but was evil he was the bad ass of the season all the girls; sharks loved him but got worse he had sex with heather in the pilot and made harold look at her boobs

34 Max

Sorry but I despise max it's my opinion

Max is so funny and his EVIL laugh haha

Max is my favorite! His story line is hilarious! "EVIL..." and "Scarlett is Hopelessly in love with me, but I must stay strong, EVIL does not date." - OrangeOranges7032

OrangeOranges7032 I totally agree. His story lines are HILARIOUS! :) I love it when he says EVIL. It's the way he says it that makes it funny. E-VIL! Its hard to tell wether Scarlet is into him or not. She got pretty annoyed at him and tricked him into admitting he built the trap he's team got caught in."Apparently they're kinda dating now" I wanna see more.

35 Beth

Beth should have totally won

Beth she get more love in that

Here's something I found out,Beth and Samey are similar expect Beth did it far better

Beth is REALLY nice.

36 Lightning

Lightning, Alejandro, Scott and Brick were always my favourite characters.

I don't really like him - TomWebb07

To the people that put him at 38th what the heck? He’s my favorite character and always was there with comic relief and was so fit. His arguments with Jo were amazing and I love his failure to recognize different genders. He is definitely the best character with all his humor and strength!
Sha-Lightning for the win!

I like him because he is a lot like Lynn from The Loud House - Spongehouse

37 Samey Samey

The only good characters on Pahkitew Island are Sammy, Ella, Jasmine and Shawn, screw the rest of them - Ar0nT0pTeNz05

My third favorite character next to Harold and Noah. She gets way too much hate in the story by other characters for doing nothing at all. Definitely should have won season 6. - KeyboardHero

Samey was my favorite tdpi player.

A victim of domestic abuse! Why is she so low?!

38 B

B does talk, he just prefers to stay quiet. That explains his label (The Strong Silent Genius)

He was robbed!

Gotta love B - Spongehouse

Go B he is actually very smart even though he doesn't talk. He got sabotaged so he was voted off to early! B

39 Tom

He shares my name - TomWebb07

Easily the most entertaining newcomer. Hoping he gets picked for later seasons, too!

So awesome! He was caring, passionate, determined and overall amazing! If doesn't eventually win and season I will die a sad man

Tom is so awesome! He should win! Plus the fez is awesome

40 Jay

He is the better one out of the twins - TomWebb07

He was funny... Liked him slightly more than mickey hated how he left

I love him! He needs to be higher on the list! - DylanheBuilder

Brought lots of entertainment to the Ridonculous Race.

41 Mal

I just love how he made all of the previous season bad guys look weak. - KeyboardHero

Mal was my favorite personality

He is powerful, with his emo powers of doom.

He is awesome the coolest he should appear again I think he return and live

42 Mickey

He is best boy.

I think the twins were great characters in TDRR, and I was sad when they got kicked. Especially since it was before certain other characters, like the rockers and stepbrothers. Sure they had some funny interactions and points to explore, but as the characters in general, I thought Mickey and Jay deserved to get more screen time. - paganomd

43 Anne Maria Anne Maria

I bet she has Mungas boobs.

She is so hilarious. And if a character doesn't have a name that begins with T and rhymes with rent, they don't get much better than Anne Maria.

Oops, forgot no one likes her

I like her and vito together she is VERY Obsessed with her hair but she is funny.

44 Jen

I hope she comes back in another season.

The Fashionista deserves another chance people!

or jen

45 Sventlana

My favorite personality because of her accent.

Out of all of Mike's personalities, she's my favorite.

Love her so athletic and gymnastic like me

46 Kitty

She's adorable and nice

I love Kitty! She is so cute! - DynastiSugarPop

! The last one was me! It was so meant for the person in 52! Soz Kitty fans! by the way SHE'S AMAZING as well! I love the fact she's a free spirit and wants what's best for her sis, Emma. VOTE PLEASE!

No offense or anything but I'm pointing out that if you want to vote for 'JEFF' you might need to go to 'GEOFF' who is in number 35 AND SHOULD BE IN NUMBER 1 BECAUSE HE'S AH-MAZING!

47 Vito

I like vito because his funny character R.I. P vito never forget you

Favorite mike personality by far

He is so sexy

So cool he is my favorite

48 Sammy

She is just so cute!

She is already on

49 Gerry


Call my agent hahaaha

50 Emma

"Emma and Noah sitting in a tree K I S-" -Owen, The Ridonculous Race - TomWebb07

Beautiful, determined, motivated, and not easily distracted. She has her mind set on winning, and doesn't get distracted easily. Future lawyer as well. Emma is the best Total Drama character!

QUEEN! She's so underrated and I hope the TD writers bring her back for a real season of TD. She would be awesome, and her relationship with Noah is so cute!

As Brody would say, SICK DUDE! (that's what I think of him! ).
