- Christian "Chris" McLean (voiced by Christian Potenza) is the first host of the Total Drama series. While in the beginning of the series, Chris prefers to remain out of the challenges and act more impartial, as the series progressed he involved himself more. He becomes obsessed with getting views, and his narcissism causes him to do more stuff focusing on him (such as making Total Drama Action's symbol of immunity be a "gilded Chris award"). He also made the challenges progressively more dangerous, believing it would bring in more viewers. At the end of Total Drama: Revenge of the Island, he is arrested for hosting the show at a toxic island, and is released one year later where he immediately starts the next season. At the end of Total Drama: Pahkitew Island, he takes a vacation.

- Don (voiced by Terry McGurrin) is the host of The Ridonculous Race. Unlike his Total Drama counterpart, Don seems to want to remain more impartial during challenges.

Alejandro is also able to partially understand him, but has difficulty figuring out what Jerd was saying. He appears in "Newf Kids on the Rock" and plays a role in the challenge when the contestants have to translate a sentence he dictated. Jerd apparently dislikes Noah stating that he is "as smart as a bag of rocks." Each time Jerd speaks, music from Sea Shanty Mix is played.
- Owen's mother (voiced by Lauren Lipson) tells Owen that she spent fifty thousand dollars on a giant cheese cellar, which excites Owen and makes him want to come home, even though their family is broke from this expense.

In terms of appearance, she greatly resembles her son.
- Lightning's father is seen in a video call from home in "Brain vs. Brawn: The Ultimate Showdown", though his face is not shown. He does not appear to be very affectionate, never even turning to look at his son in the video call.
- Mr. Coconut is a coconut that Owen drew a face on after being left in isolation for too long. After becoming too attached, Chris "eliminated" Mr. Coconut to help Owen return to reality. The coconut doesn't appear again for a very long time, but in Total Drama All-Stars, Mr. Coconut appears in the season intro inside a submerged treasure chest. It also appears again in the season finale. Christian Potenza says that Mr. Coconut is one of his favorite characters in the show.
- The escaped psycho killer with a chainsaw and a hook (voiced by Scott McCord in Total Drama Island and Brian Froud in Total Drama All-Stars) is a serial killer who escapes and ends up at Camp Wawanakwa.

Now I got his 'gorgeousity' making me come off as even more hideous, great." in the original version and "Now I wish I didn't vote for her [Beth]." in the alternate ending. He only has one line in the original ending which is "Oh, was I supposed to bring a prize?"

- Jasmine is Leshawna's friend who "auditioned" for Total Drama Action, but never competes in the season. She explains that she has attended McGillis Talent Agency, a drama class, and lives in a rough neighborhood on a peninsula, in which she calls it a "Total Drama Peninsula". She is unique because the other videos show family members, but this shows a best friend, which implies Jasmine is like family to Leshawna. Jasmine is the first family-like figure in Leshawna's life to make an appearance.

There are also many notable non-human characters in the series that serve as obstacles in the challenges while other characters serve as pets owned by some contestants.
- Sasquatchanakwa is a yeti who appears in every season. During the first season, a group of Sasquatchanakwas is seen staring at a sleeping Owen, and later he attacks the contestants after they stay in the woods overnight. During the second season he appears as part of a challenge, and seems to have much more human-like qualities (even talking and using the confessional). He appears as part of the fake cast of Total Drama Dirtbags. During the third season, he is again placed in challenges by Chris to attack the contestants. During the fourth season, he kidnaps Lindsay after he begins to feel insecure. In the fifth season, he is brought to Chris by Zoey as part of a challenge, and in the second half of the season he is frozen solid. In the spin-off, a frozen Sasquachanakwa is seen taking a picture with Kitty, and later a Sasquatchanakwa with white fur appears.
- Bruno is a bear Bridgette rescues after its paw is injured. After helping him, he follows her back to Hawaii where he refuses to let Geoff get too close to Bridgette, attacking him whenever he did. After Blaineley, who is in a full body cast, is thrown into the water, Bruno saved her, and began using her as a chew toy, distracting him from Geoff and allowing Bridgette and Geoff to reunite.
- Fang is a mutant shark obsessed with Scott. After eating him, Scott knocked out Fang's tooth, causing Fang to start chasing him to get it back. At the end of the fourth season, Fang gets his tooth back and mauls Scott. During the following season he still hates Scott, hurting him at any chance he gets. After Mike knocks out his tooth and gives it to Alejandro and Heather, Fang begins to chase instead.
- Larry is Chris's pet Venus fly trap that he left on the island before renting it out to a toxic waste disposal company. During the fifth season, Larry has babies, causing Zoey to question if Larry is actually a Laurie.

- Leshawna Jr. was Harold's pet snail in Total Drama Action. Harold first found her upon waking up in after Duncan puts the snail in Harold's blanket as a prank. Harold then feels an attachment to the snail, due to the fact he believes that she looks like Leshawna, and then stores her in a match box for safekeeping. Later on, Leshawna Jr. is eliminated by Chris so it heads out packing. While Leshawna Jr. travels out into nature, Chris says that if Leshawna Jr. will ever make it out of the film lot before the year 2020. This gives Leshawna Jr. a little over a year left to get there.
- Cody Jr. is a baby condor that hatches out of one of Sierra's condor eggs that she is carrying for the challenge. Sierra then considers Cody Jr. as her and Cody's child because they are "married". However, due to Heather being the first thing Cody Jr. ever saw, it considers Heather to be its mother, much to both Heather and Sierra's annoyance.
- Ginger (voiced by Sarah Gadon) is Trent's obsessed fan from Sudbury, Ontario. She told Trent that she would have loved it if he "went psycho-crazy" over her, referring to Gwen's dislike of his strange behavior. He looks a bit uncomfortable, whether it is about the subject of him going crazy, or because of Ginger's overly strong crush on him. She resembles Beth to an extent and is voiced by Sarah Gadon.
- Gordon (voiced by Adam Reid) is a furious young man from London, Ontario, who wants to be a chef. He has anger management issues and frequently swears. He attempts to figure out what the secret ingredient is in DJ's food.

- Kelsey (voiced by Kristin Fairlie) from Kamloops, British Columbia, is another Trent fan, a bit more obsessed than the last one, Ginger, and possibly proves herself to be somewhat unsound. Her voice actor is unknown as of yet. She has a stuffed doll of Trent that she kissed in the video nine times. Trent is terrified of her, due to her obsessiveness.
- Harvey, from Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, asks Leshawna if she is in a relationship with Harold, to which she replies that they are just friends. Throughout the interview, Harvey hints that he has a crush on Leshawna, too. Harvey is somewhat similar to Harold in terms of personality, but has many physical differences like braces, a different pair of glasses, and a different hair color.
- Willy, from Wiarton, Ontario, apparently Bridgette's "biggest" fan, goes on the webcam, at Bridgette's request. Willy, resembling Harvey from a previous aftermath, tells Bridgette that he doesn't want to be too obvious and ask Bridgette about footwear or catching waves. Willy then states that there's something he really wants to know about Bridgette, takes out a pole, and asks her if she would kiss it. This upsets Bridgette and causes her to snap.
