Elimination is the process in the Total Drama series when a team or the merged contestants have to vote off a fellow contestant or when a contestant is automatically eliminated due to performence in the challenge.

An elimination usually occurs during a campfire ceremony, awards ceremony, or barf bag ceremony. Chris will hand out a marshmallow, Gilded Chris Award, or barf bag to the contestants and whoever doesn't receive one has been eliminated from the competition. Sometimes, no awards are handed out to anyone at all. Generally, elimination ceremonies happen after nightfall.

Chris says once a contestant walks the Dock of Shame in Total Drama Island, Walk of Shame in Total Drama Action, takes the Drop of Shame in Total Drama World Tour, gets thrown in the Hurl of Shame in Total Drama: Revenge of the Island, or gets flushed by the Flush of Shame in Total Drama All Stars, that they can never come back, "ever." However, in No Pain, No Game the producers bring back Izzy and Eva to come back as contestants, which prompts Chris to say "I lied." Also, something that isn't human has been voted off. Lindsay, DJ and Heather all left in a sudden-death elimination in the first season. In the second season there is an occasion where DJ eliminates himself from the competition, despite his team having won the last challenge.

During the first, second, and third season of the Total Drama series, a contestant always had a video made of their best moments during their time on the season and how they were eliminated, posted on the Cartoon Network website.
