Top 10 Best Total Drama Characters

The Top Ten

1 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

Duncan is amazing. he has stayed in the longest overall the seasons he is manipulative rebellious funny strong fast smart and unlike heather he is nice to people unless he has to be mean to win. On the inside he is caring and has quite a few friends. He is really awesome. he has even won the million and he has still returned to be in all 4 seasons possible for the classic contestants. GO DUNCAN!

I like Duncan because he is a Bad Boy and can get Attractive Chicks

2 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

Gwen awesome in Island. I hated that in Action, Justin suddenly decided to blame Gwen for Trent throwing challenges for her instead of actually confronting Trent about it if they wondered why he was acting strange all of a sudden. In World Tour, I was feeling sorry for Gwen when she got caught in the Gwen/Duncan/Courtney love triangle, it made me hate Duncan and Courtney even more. I was happy that she returned in All-Stars, I felt sad when Courtney still wouldn't forgive Gwen for kissing that ass.

Gwen should be above Duncan. She took on killers while Duncan can't even handle Courtney!

Gwen is the best. If you want to know why, you didn't watch the series.

3 Heather

Heather is so cool. She's been in the most episodes. Tied with Spector highest female placing. Being 3 in one season, and 1/2 in another. She is mean, evil, and loveable. Like dimond tiara. But we get information on here to, like in here family message from home. She is so funny, and you can tel why she is mean. Just watch total, drama, drama, drama, island, and you'll like you. Plus she has mad yo-yo skills. - Shadowxr

She really does her best! I mean being bald on international T.V., ditching friends, kissing Duncan, kissing Trent and always being pranked like those red ants and that time she showered dirty water because of the monster LeShawna just to get the million. I've said enough to prove you guys are wrong about her being mean and she deserves to be the best and the first! Heather forever! She is very smart, hot, beautiful, and very intelligent!

Heather is really hot but, I don't know why all the other people are being so mean to her she's always trying so hard. If was Alejandro I would never stop looking at her and. She looks like tomb raider and shes hot. I think I liked her the most in total drama world tour.

Don't you apreciate a great villian?

4 Owen

Owen is THE original Total Drama winner. The farting, gluttonous Richard Hatch of Total Drama. He deserves his love, and none of his hate! He is the best! So, the next time you think "He's just a slob! " remember, he beat Gwen! And Courtney! And Heather!

He is the funny, lovable goofball. He made the whole series what it is. TDI was the best season by far and Owen winning it all made it that much sweeter. He rarely had anything bad to say, befriended almost everyone, and even found love along the way with Izzy. TDI had me wondering will they/won't they. I loved their hilarious and crazy relationship. And his song in TDWT, after Izzy broke up with him, brought tears to my eyes. It was simple, yet moving. It truly showed how much he loved her and always love her. He's the ultimate hero of Total Drama and deserves another shot at the money after being convinced to give up his prize money.

He is the best character in this whole damn show. You see, ou turn your head and there's something related to Duncan, Gwen, Courtney, Heather, Alejandro, Mike or a few people. Owen is better than all them.
You see, humiliation is always in fashion on the show, either on the islands or around the world. But now? What's humiliation? A kiss? A relationship? What about farts, funny quotes and funny scenes? Look at Owen. He is the symbol of the show. He's Total Drama in a person' s body. Just forget about all the girls that love Duncan and the damn relationships. We have an Owen to beat them all.

Nicest one here.

5 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

He's so sarcastic and smart kinda like me he should of won at least one time, he's like the awesomest character in the total drama series, at least he's number 3 on the list right now

He's really funny and smart. He should have made it to the end! - clsmith03

Noah’s sarcasm is the best and is super relatable

6 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.

Cody is so cute! People say I'm like Sierra... Just because I like Cody. It was HILARIOUS when he punched Duncan in the face! I laughed my head off when he did that! GO CODY! :D

Cody is smart when it comes to electronics. He should have won season 3. There should have been an alternate part where Cody wins instead of Alejandro in the fight to save Heather.

Go Cody

7 Courtney

Almost killed sharks and is almost as crazy as izzy and as strong as ever when she's pissed.

Best because
1 she is almost as angry as ever at times
2 she dated Duncan and Scott two bad boys
And 3 she is smart and brought out the good in Duncan

Courtney is such a type A! She has always been one of my favorite characters! Izzy is another one of my favorites! They keep the show interesting, along with all the other characters!

She's cool

8 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.

Lindsay is the best character ever in Total Drama! She should definitely be in the Top 10. She is one of 5 contestants to compete in all 4 good seasons. (Revenge of the Island sucks) Lindsay is a great competitor, and by far the funniest contestant in Total Drama History! She's also really hot!

I usually hate the "dumb blonde" character that always kisses up to the leader, but Lindsay just clicked to me. She's always been my favorite, especially when I was younger, and since she never really got much attention in the fandom, I thought she was a bad character. So I kept forcing myself to like someone like Courtney or Gwen, but I just couldn't, because I knew Lindsay has SO much more going for her. Not to mention her relationship with Tyler is utterly ADORABLE! Lindsay deserves way more screentime than she already has :3

She rocks! Imagine if she had won the million dollars! It was hillarious when she said she would buy a million dollars worth of lip gloss! Best character ever!

9 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!

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.)

If you ask me mike is my favorite! He was awesome in revenge of the island and he deserved to win all stars. He's cool, strong, nice, and smart. He punched a shark in the face like it was nothing! And him controlling his multiple personalities is awesome, and did you know they where planning for mal since total drama revenge of the island? I never knew until I rewatched the episode he fought his personalities and he said this head is under new management mine and before he said mine you could see the shadow of mal appear behind his shoulder when I saw that my mind was blown! Mike deserved to win at least one total drama season he's a true all star!

Just the best

10 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

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.

Dawn should be number 1! That is how awesome she is! She makes me laugh because of the other characters reactions to her. Duncan is stupid and a total jerk!

I love dawn!

The Contenders

11 Alejandro

Lots of people hate Alejandro, and I understand why. Alejandro deserves to win, he may be a trickster but he has smart ways. He was the best contestant in All Stars, and in a World Tour. I know he manipulated Bridgette, Leshawna and Courtney. I like all of those people. It's just that after all the work he out into the game, he deserves to win. Especially after Heather betrayed him in World Tour.

I LOVE ALEJANDRO. I don't understand why people hate him. He was just playing the game. He's like uh...JUSTIN 2.0 UPGRADED. Seriously I'd like to see them face off. He also deserved to win. He manipulated people and fooled everyone. He definitely deserved to win after all his work. He's athletic, smart and good looking HE'S PERFECT why do people hate him I ask again PLEASE EXPLAIN

Alejandro is the best Total Drama character! I like how he's sneaky and manipulative, yet has a soft side for Heather. If he was real, He would be the hottest guy ever.

Just really like his character.

12 Zoey

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

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 like Zoey because she is friendly and kind. I think she is very similar to Bridgette's personality. She may not be the prettiest, but I think she looks fine and is a great character!
(She's my 2nd favorite, the first being Dawn! )

2 words Zoey Amazing done

13 Izzy

Izzy is one of the funniest characters on total drama and she doesn't like to run from a fight. (Especially when fighting chief) Shes crazy and she doesn't form alliances or get on anyone's bad side

I enjoy having episodes with Izzy in them, she makes them fun to watch. I'm just sad she's not in Total Drama All Stars.

I love Izzy! I for real want to be just like her! She is crazy, loves animals, and crazy! That's why I love her! She's awesome.

Izzy is flat out HILARIOUS! Her saying "You'll never catch me alive! " brings me life.

14 Bridgette Bridgette

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

Bridgette is the prettiest, her hair is the prettiest and she is the coolest! If you did not vote for Bridgette, you are NOT EVEN HUMAN AND YOU ARE TOTALLY OUT OF YOUR ENTIRE MIND! Now I know what your thinking. Why would I vote for Bridgette?! Well my answer is watch Total Drama World Tour! Every where you go you will see her # 1 in the top tens. Read those and you will have more reasons on why she should be your favorite. So if you do not agree with my explanation you try to explain any other way! See ya! Hope this changed your mind about Bridgette! PEACE OUT!

She's amazing, I think that she really should have more screen time without Geoff kissing her, I think that she should have a fight with a newbie like Dakota

Vote for this girl daily, that way she'll get much higher!

15 Leshawna

Leshawna is HILARIOUS! I was kind of disappointed when Harold and Leshawna fell in love in TDI because they don't suit each other. Leshawna should be in more seasons. GO LESHAWNA!

Not many people share my same opinion, but Leshawna is a great character! I love how she stands up for others, like Harold when Duncan was picking on him, and Gwen. I feel like she's one of the most likeable characters, especially since she's really sassy and funny.

She was awesome in season 1! She's sassy, funny, and is there for her friends (like Gwen when Heather kiss Trent) She was alright in season 2 but I couldn't stand anyone in season 3

16 Trent

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.

He was so lucky to hit on Gwen first. Duncan is mean and rude. He is rude because he took Gwen when Courtney was starting to like her AND got Gwen into SERIOUS TROUBLE by Courtney and got eliminated because of him (sort of). Duncan's rude for... BLOWING UP CHRIS'S "COTTAGE", SO WRONG

No I almost cried Trent is awesome I love Trent and Gwen stupid Duncan and Gwen! Go with Courtney Duncan

I never liked this guy for some reasons...sorry Trent fans!

17 Tyler

Tyler needs to return for another season of Total Drama. He was very fun to watch with his slapstick humor in World Tour and is need of development. I would love to see him compete again because he hasn't really gotten the opportunity to shine in a season. He's very underrated and deserves to make the merge. It would be nice to see him get more screen time.

I is an awesome character, I like how he claims that he's good at sports and then performs terribly at it. Easily my number one favorite of the Original cast.

I wish Tyler got more credit. He is an amazing player and I wish I saw more of him

He's a Baller.

18 Scott

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

I like scott with courtney but I also love courtney with duncan I just don't like they way scott plays the game but I don't hate him

Yeah he is a villain. But a hilarious one.

19 Brick

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!

Brick is one character who should've been brought into All-Star over Sam. He's such a great character, trying to win a million dollars while following the cadet code. - DinoKea

Lol Brick is funny! Totally messing with the stereotypical cadet, - DragonPrincess1

20 Sierra

The ultimate fan girl. She kinda reminds me of myself. I have no idea if that's a good thing or not.

She was nuts, sure. But that doesn't deny her sweet heart and large skill.

She's CRAZY! Izzy 2.0

Crazy girl. I like her.
