Total Drama Island/Characters/Mutant Maggots

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

MutantMaggots 9908.jpg

Total Drama Island's cast got so big that the page had to be split into several pages. This page is for the season 4 contestants in the Mutant Maggots team.

Anne Maria

The Jersey Shore Reject

"Sure I want to win a million dollars, but not at the expense of my looks! I mean check me out, perfect hair, perfect tan, all this is worth a billion, easy."


Voiced by: Athena Karkanis


Anne Maria is style-obsessed teen with a fake tan and hair that's strong as steel.


Zoey: (referring to Anne Maria's hair brush and hair dryer) Hey! How'd you sneak that in?
Anne Maria: Easy! I stuck it in my poof! (pulls out a can of hairspray)



The Cadet

"I may be the strongest player here, but I'm all about the teamwork. Back in cadet camp, I took the teamwork medal three years running"


Voiced by: Jon Cor


Brick is a respectful military cadet who has been trained as a soldier and therefore thinks he's got a big chance at winning the competition. He strongly believes in teamwork and never leaving a man behind.


Brick: (covering up his pee stain) It was wet down there, and I landed on my crotch!



The Wide-eyed Bubble-boy

"Fresh air, a real lake, birds!"


Voiced by: Kevin Duhaney


Cameron is a nerd who does not go out too much due to his mother being overprotective.


Jo: (after Cam vomits after running to Mt. Looming Tragedy) If we were hamsters, I would've eaten you by now.

  • Megane
  • My Beloved Smother: One reason he is a Bubble Boy.
  • Nice Guy: He shares the $1 million cash prize with the entire cast. Even enemies like Lightning and Scott.
  • Oh Crap: His reaction in "The Enchanted Franken-Forest" when he realizes that Lightning eliminated Zoey instead of him just so the jock could have his vengeance on him.
  • Older Than They Look: Despite being 16, he looks like a pre-teen, most likely a side effect of being a bubble boy.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Zigzagged, see Power Creep, Power Seep below.
  • Power Creep, Power Seep: In his audition tape and in "Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!", he falls over from the weight of a butterfly landing on his head, but in "Finders Creepers", he is strong enough to break out of the cocoon he was trapped in and defeat the giant spider with a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown.
  • Race Lift: His prototype design had him as a white guy, but changed him to black instead.
  • Secret Secret Keeper: In the episode "Ice, Ice Baby", he figures out that Mike has multiple personality disorder. Later, in "A Mine is a Terrible Thing to Waste", Cameron agrees to help Mike with his condition after forming an alliance to take down Scott.
  • Shorter Means Smarter: He is one the most book smart contestants in the series.
  • Techno Wizard: In the finale, he built a working Iron Man suit from a pile of scraps. The kid qualifies.
  • Teens Are Short: One of the few contestants to play it straight.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In the episode "Finders Creepers", he confesses to having arachnophobia, and even the tiniest spiders frighten him. Later, when he and various other players are trapped in a web by a giant spider, he breaks out of his web cocoon in a surge of adrenaline and beats the crap out of the giant spider. It turns out it was actually Izzy in disguise, but it still cured Cameron of his phobia, although he is now afraid of Izzy.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Got Jo back good in "Up, Up, and Away in My Pitiful Balloon." After she has been taking advantage of his tech savvy and strong-arming him into an "alliance", Cam rigs the fog machine that he won to explode when Jo uses it, setting fire to the balloon he made for her and literally dropping her from the competition.
  • Why Did It Have To Be Spiders: He overcomes it; see Took a Level in Badass above.
  • Worthy Opponent: Jo is at first very angry when Cameron backstabs her. When Cameron says he "learned from the best" and referred to her, Jo cut him some slack.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: He manages to pull one to JO.


The "Take-no-prisoners Jock-ette"

"You will choose me for Total Drama Revenge of the Island, because I am the best, the strongest, the smartest, and by extension, the meanest."


Voiced by: Laurie Elliott


Jo is the resident tough girl of the new cast.

  • Action Girl: That should really go without saying.
  • Anti-Hero: Type IV
  • Batman Gambit: She relies on these to get ahead.
    • In "Ice Ice Baby", she exploits Anne Maria's short temper regarding her appearance to make her participate in the challenge.
    • She often exploits Brick's military background and his sense of chivalry.
    • When she switches teams, she often exploits Lightning's competitive spirit.
    • She ironically falls victim to one when Cameron rigs the fog machine he won with an explosive, knowing that Jo would scam it from him.
  • Boyish Short Hair
  • Brawn Hilda: She evidently looks so masculine that Lightning can't tell she's female. Played for Laughs; since it's highly obvious to the audience she's female. She does actually sound rather masculine, though.
  • Cosmetic Catastrophe: She gets a Joker-equse makeover no thanks to Mike (as Chester) in "Runaway Model".
  • Expy: Of Sue Sylvester from Glee.
  • Informed Attribute: Her proposed ugliness (when she works out in the nude and scares away all the animals) and the fact that Lightning mistakes her for a boy. One of the few examples in which this is Played for Laughs, however.
  • Jerk Jock
  • Karmic Elimination: In the episode where she's eliminated, she pretty much treats Cameron like complete garbage. Conveniently, guess who sends her right out, instead of Scott? She even admitted that he was a Worthy Opponent after that.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy / Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Masculine Girl / Red Oni to Brick's Feminine Boy / Blue Oni. Both are depicted as tough; Brick has a more sensitive side, whereas Jo is more aggressive.
  • Modesty Towel: She wears one in a confessional.

Jo: Now that I have the girls cabin for myself, I can practice like the first Olympic athletes...Naked!

  • The Nicknamer: She has called Brick "G. I. Joke" and "Brick-for-brains", Mike "Pointy", Zoey "Red", Cameron "String bean", and has several names for Anne Maria including "Poofhead", "Sprayhead", "Tan job" and "Helmethead".
  • No Guy Wants an Amazon: During the mine challenge, she confesses that she never kissed a guy.
  • Please Put Some Clothes On: A little birdie vomits when it sees Jo's nude workout session in "A Mine Is a Terrible Thing to Waste".
  • Pragmatic Villainy: She runs a tight shift as the Maggots' leader, makes it perfectly clear she's tough, mean, and in it to win, and can be quite critical. However, she's not above praising her teammates when they win a challenge.
  • The Rival: To Brick and Lightning.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Of Eva, although she has far more personality and the anger is toned down.
  • Tomboy: She dislikes anything even remotely girly.
  • Tomboyish Name: A reason for Lightning believing that she is a guy.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Tells Brick to ignore his "no man left behind" instinct when she and the other Maggots are caught by the "spider" and finish the challenge in "Finders Creepers", figuring him making it to the end first will win the challenge. He does make it first before the Rats' Sam and Scott, but it turns out that the team with the most members at the end wins it.
  • Younger Than They Look: Her boyish appearance makes her look older than a typical teen girl.


The Multiple Personality Disorder

I just hope my condition doesn't ruin everything like it did before.


Voiced by: Cory Doran


Mike is one messed-up teen who has, you guessed it, multiple personality disorder that comes up at random every time.

  • Adorkable
  • Ambiguously Brown: Though as Vito he refers to his "tanned body", meaning he might be a deeply tanned Caucasian, like Katie.
  • Anime Hair: It's almost as long as his head.
  • Battle in the Center of the Mind: He wages one against his other personalities in "Grand Chef Auto". And wins.
  • Blackmail: Falls victim to it, courtesy of Scott. Scott forces Mike to help him in "Grand Chef Auto" after learning about Mike's disorder, threatening to tell Zoey if he doesn't.
  • Expy / Hey, It's That Voice! - He's similar to a brown-skinned and black-haired Jimmy Two-Shoes, and both are voiced by Cory Doran. His prototype design enforces the expy more, down to the hairstyle and outfit.
  • Fan Nickname: He's called Mike "Two-Shoes" by the Jimmy Two-Shoes fans.
  • Fish Eyes: He always gets them right before one of his multiple personalities activates.
  • Five-Man Band: His personalities make up a rather dysfunctional one:
    • The Hero: Mike's normal self.
    • The Lancer: Vito; since he causes the most problems for Mike, especially with his relationship with Zoey.
    • The Big Guy: Manitoba Smith; since he's a tough wilderness adventurer.
    • The Smart Guy: Chester; since he's a complainer.
    • The Chick: Svetlana; since she's Mike's only female persona.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: He believes that his multiple personality disorder will ruin his chances with Zoey. However, when he admits his condition to Zoey after overcoming it, she accepts him for who he is.
  • Last-Second Word Swap: He almost reveals his condition to Jo in "Ice, Ice Baby".

Jo: (as the Maggots' fort is melting) Mike, do your Svetlana thing and get on the catapult.
Mike: (nervously) I, I, oh, I cant! My personality...ah, I mean, my impressions are, uh, hard to, um...



The Indie Chick

"Wow, I can't believe I'm in the Total Drama confessional, it's so exciting. Everyone seems so nice. I hope they all like me, I could use a few more friends, or friends period. Oh, what if they hate me? Maybe this flower is too big. Am I trying to hard? You like me, right?"


Voiced by: Barbara Mamabolo


Zoey is a nice girl who wants to be friends with everyone, since she has none back home.

  • Action Girl / Xenafication: Early on, she is more of a Damsel in Distress; however, she becomes a full-on Action Girl after Mike is eliminated.
  • The Archer: During her Heroic Safe Mode rampage.
  • Ascended Fangirl: In the first episode, she states that she is stoked to be on Total Drama, having watched the show since its inception. Later, she was initially excited to meet Heather; however, the excitement died when Heather called Zoey a loser.
  • Badass Adorable / Badass Damsel: In "Truth or Laser Shark", a pair of mutant beavers were about to eat her and she kicked them both in the groin. She apologizes to them while saying she did warn them to stop. Later, in "Up, Up And Away In My Pitiful Balloon", she manages to tame the mutant flying mountain goats to do her bidding.
  • Bare Your Midriff
  • The Beastmistress: She commandeers a trio of flying mountain goats to attack Scott in "Up, Up And Away In My Pitiful Balloon".
  • Betty and Veronica: Betty to Anne Maria's Veronica. Mike, the Archie, prefers Zoey over Anne Maria when his normal personality has control.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Taken Up to Eleven in "Eat, Puke, and Be Wary". See Cute and Psycho below.

Chef Hatchet: I may have pushed her too far.


Zoey: I don't even know how many times Mike's saved my butt. Mike, if you're watching this, me and my butt thank you.

  • Face Heel Turn: Played with. While she does not actually turn evil, she does experience major Sanity Slippage during "Eat, Puke and Be Wary" and is Not Herself in "The Enchanted Franken-Forest", making it seem like a FHT to Cameron.
  • Fan Nickname: After Taking A Level In Badass, she is called by many Zoebo since her headband is reminiscent of Rambo.
  • Fiery Redhead: Normally, she is a level-headed person; however, she can get violent when provoked.
  • First Girl Wins: Almost averted. In "Grand Chef Auto", Zoey was ready to break off their relationship because Mike was helping Scott and abandoning her during the challenge, not knowing that Mike was being blackmailed by Scott; however, when Mike overcomes his multiple personalities and admits it to Zoey, she accepts him for who he is and their relationship starts in earnest.
  • Flower in Her Hair
  • Freaky Is Cool: She admits that she likes oddballs, especially after Mike admitted his MPD to her.
  • Friendless Background
  • Girlish Pigtails: The non-girly variation.
  • Glomp: Does this to Mike and Cameron in "A Mine is a Terrible Thing to Waste" when she sees that they survived the fall from the mine tracks.
  • Hipster: Her label and audition video may suggest hints of this. She states that she wanted to "go to indie theaters, and wear retro clothes and horn-rimmed glasses."
    • Her prototype design wears horn-rimmed glasses and a retro-style outfit with high-waist short shorts and a frilly top.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: See the quote at the top of the section.
  • MacGyvering: She makes an improvised slingshot out of a dinner fork in "The Enchanted Franken-Forest".
  • Madness Makeover: When she dons war paint and makes a bandanna out of the bottom half of her tube top in "Eat, Puke, and Be Wary".
  • Not Herself: During "Eat, Puke and Be Wary" and "The Enchanted Franken-Forest".
  • Only Sane Woman: Zoey is the most normal out of all the newcomers, at least prior to "Eat, Puke and Be Wary".
  • Out-of-Character Moment: Played for laughs, when she sees the million dollar case in "Up, Up And Away In My Pitiful Balloon"...

Zoey: (entranced) Money! Removing all common sense and fear of danger.
Scott: Too bad you'll never win it. (Zoey pushes him down) Owww!!
Zoey: (angrily) Just watch me! (reverting back to her usual self) If that's okay with you.
