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

Best character hands down. He has so much personality besides "just a bad boy and a bully". He is awesome and deserved to win Total Drama Action.

"A good boy, a bad boy, a good bad boy, a half good half bad half boy"

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

I love Gwen! So funny and relatable at times, she's one of the characters that keeps the show interesting. My dad watches the show with me and Gwen is his favorite character. Lol. Also, love her outfit and hair.

Gwen is like the nicest and most likable character on Total Drama. - RogerMcBaloney

Yes gwen one of the girls that almost peed their pants in the paintball deer hunter

3 Heather

She's the "Queen Of Mean", and I LOVE her for that. Best "Total Drama" Villain EVER!

Heather is my favourite charachter. I think I always liked the villain in general but they developed Heather so much in world tour that she shot right up to my tops. I originally loved Alejandro more, but after considering how much she changed and grew I found myself liking her more - Rathernotbenamed

Heather is an amazing villain. She was mean at times but an amazing person to watch. She is cool.

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

4 Owen

By far one of the best characters on TD, he is so funny with his fart jokes! He's just so fun and enjoyable!

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!

He has energy and he is super nice to everyone.

Owen is the best.

5 Noah

Honestly, I think Noah should be number 4 -or higher- instead of Owen. All of the top 4 characters are severely overrated... Although Noah is a little bit overrated, he's not as overrated as the top 4... And Noah actually improved over the series... The top 4 just did what they normally do... and even if you don't agree with me about Noah, I'm sure you'd say the same of the characters below.

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

Noah is awesome! He has such funny comments and was eliminated to early in Island. He is one of the best characters!

He is so funny, and has improved so much as a character. He still stands as my favorite.

6 Courtney

Courtney is my favorite TD character. Her attitude is so lovable, she can sometimes be bossy and fiesty but when she breaks the rules she feels so free and I love that. I hated it when Harold rigged the votes and got her sent home to get revenge on Duncan. I kinda also have a little bit of a crush on her along with Bridgette. I ship Duncan and Courtney for life though, their so cute.

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

Best character progression

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.

7 Bridgette

Bridgette is so cute and down to earth. I love her and Geoff. I also kinda had a little crush on her along with Courtney.

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

She's so nice

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

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.

So funny, she steals every scene she is in

Just watching Lindsay being herself makes me laugh because she's dumb as heck - lovebigbrother123

Shes literally iconic

9 Alejandro

He's just great, clever, handsome, very strategic. Sure, he's manipulative and evil, but he's still a fantastic character, my number 1


I would bang him

He looks like poop

10 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 probably another one of my favorites because he is so relatable and to be honest he kinda reminds me of me. I love it when he tries to hit on Gwen. I got so sad when he got voted off.

What's not to love about him? He is so adorable and has the prettiest eyes.

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

The Contenders

11 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!

One of the characters that stands out the most from Season 4. All the different storylines involving him and his identity disorder we're really fun and captivating. - RogerMcBaloney

He is just a very interesting character and his interactions with Zoey were the best

Hands down favorite character.
I rewatch All Stars all the time, just because of him.

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 is so beautiful, sweet, and pure.

I am so sorry about her, she didn't deserve disappearing from the series so quickly

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 Izzy

Izzy is such a lovable and funny goofball. She's so fun to watch and I'm sad that she left early in TDI.

Izzy is my second favorite after Sierra, she is really funny and a good addition to the show!

Who doesn't like the red hair wild?

I love her crackhead energy

14 Harold

Completely underrated.
I love how much he changed when him and duncan were working together.

Harold is an amazing character. He may often brag but he does the work that he actually says he can do. He was robbed in World Tour.

He is the best and the punch to Duncan is so fun and amazing

We nerd have to stand up for one another go,

15 Zoey

A little bland, but definitely a classic.


I like her,but she's kinda bland, no offense to Zoey fans because I do like her,I just wish she

She is kinda bland - TomWebb07

16 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.

I like how he takes pleasure in making the campers' lives a living hell. - RogerMcBaloney

He is the one who makes this program interesting.

Monokuma, this is all

Kidz Bop Monokuma

17 Leshawna

Leshawna is such a real and funny character on the show. Pretty relatable and I love her beef with Heather.

Leshawna was one of the realest and funniest contestants on the whole show, I loved her energy and attitude!

Why she down here? "I like to keep things cool"

She is so funny to watch!

18 DJ

I like DJ because he's so calm and down to earth. He's also a animal lover which I can relate too.

DJ was the sweetest & most congenial character on the entire show in my opinion!

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.

19 Scott

Scott is one of the best villains on the show. I didn't think they would be able to create a character as good, if not better than Heather, but they managed to pull it off. - RogerMcBaloney

He is HILARIOUS and iconic!

He's funny! - Spongehouse

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.

20 Trent

Trent is so laid back which is one of the features I love about him. I also love him and Gwen together!

He is so cool, and nice in season one.

I hate him in action and a tad in island

My favorte character

21 Ella

She's cute

She was without a doubt the sweetest Member of pahkitew island(with the exception of possibly Sammy/Samey)

Bo! Sorry I couldn't help myself - Spongehouse

^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.

22 Chef Hatchet

Basically the heart and soul of the show, and one of the best, funniest and most entertaining characters of the show, if not the best ever. - RogerMcBaloney

Hatchet Squad for the win

Psycho I can relate to

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

23 Geoff

I just love my geoff

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

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!

So underrated.

24 Brick

Can't knock the good personality he has.

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.

25 Cameron

I will say one thing, Cam should have won.

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

26 Tyler

He is stupid and funny, I love it! He always makes me laugh.

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!

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

She is hilarious and needs to be higher.

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

10/10 best binch

literally lifts 300lb and drugs her boyfriend

Funny but annoying - JazzyJulie

29 Jasmine

I like how much of an actual personality she has, I feel like she is somebody I would meet irl rather than a cartoon character.

An new character who was special
even better when she gets together with shawn

The girl with the right attitude

Best character on TDPI - Ar0nT0pTeNz05

30 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.

31 Mr. Coconut


Coconut inside of me



32 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

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

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

Great Season 2 villain

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 Samey Samantha "Samey"/"Sammy" was a contestant on Total Drama: Pahkitew Island as a member of the Pimâpotew Kinosewak.

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

Love her. I can relate to Samey (Sammy) getting abused by a sibling. But Amy crosses a very big line. Samey is one of the sweetest characters on the show. I really am pulling for her to win in a future season.

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.

36 Beth

Beth should have totally won

I love her,she reminds me of well,ME lol she can be selfish,but she is most of the time sweet and friendly

Beth she get more love in that

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

37 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

38 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

39 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

40 Jay

He shares my name

Such a funny and cute guy


I loved the twins!

41 Mal

Okay he's plain awesome

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.

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

Unimportant to most major plots but she was a funny character. - Rathernotbenamed

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.

Whoever said she has mungas boobs LOL ;D

44 Kitty

A cooler version of lindsay

She is just sooo cute...

I love her

She's adorable and nice

45 Jen

I hope she comes back in another season.

The Fashionista deserves another chance people!

or jen

46 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

47 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! ).

48 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

49 Gerry


Call my agent hahaaha

50 Macarthur

Shes just funny

Tough as nails, funny and memorable in every way possible. Definitely one of the show's best. Long live Macarthur!

MacArthur is definitely an amazing contestant she strong, brave, tough, and funny! I'm glad she won in the last episode in other countries.

Macarthur is one of the shows best contestants! So funny!
