The Villainous Vultures is one of the two opposing teams in Total Drama All-Stars. The team is made up of Heather, Duncan, Lightning, Jo, Scott, Gwen and later Alejandro.

In Moon Madness, Cameron attempted to quit the game due to Sierra's affections, but Chris instead placed him on the Villains' side.

Total Drama All-Stars

In Heroes vs. Villains, the team is formed by Chris, appointing Duncan, Gwen, Heather, Jo, Lightning, and Scott to the team. Jo complains that the team is one member short prompting Chris to include his robot. Excluding Gwen, everyone on the team seems proud or accepting of their villain status. The team soon develops a power struggle for leadership, while Gwen tries to encourage the other members of their team to work together. Scoffing in response, the others admit in a confessional that they don't trust anyone on the team and only do things to benefit themselves. When Chris orders the teams to pick a driver, Scott, Jo, and Lightning wrestle for the position until Jo gains it by lying about being a champion shopping cart spree racer. During the challenge, the Vultures take an early lead on the Heroic Hamsters until they eventually caught up due to Scott's unwillingness to participate due to his selachophobia. Later, Scott accidentally pushes the robot into the water and is attacked by the sharks, releasing Alejandro, which shocks everyone, especially Heather. He catches a key which ultimately ends up being the correct one, causing them to win the first challenge. They later intended the elimination ceremony where Chris asked for a volunteer. Lightning agreed to the task which was to spend the night in exile at Boney Island for a chance to find the McLean-Brand Chris Head.

In Evil Dread, the team is seen relaxing at the hotel spa, except for Lightning, who is still at Boney Island. Gwen, Duncan, Jo, and Scott are at the dining table where Scott wonders if Lightning found the statue and Jo tries to convince the team to vote him off at the first opportunity. Meanwhile Heather and Alejandro talk while Alejandro is getting a massage. Lightning returns just in time for the next challenge. The whole time Heather and Jo compete for leadership over their team while Heather remains suspicious as to whether or not Alejandro's legs actually are "deep asleep" and Lightning gets distracted by himself constantly. They think they found all their pieces before the other team but a piece turns out to be missing, thanks to Lightning's counting error. Said error proved to be costly as the Heroic Hamsters won the challenge. At their first elimination ceremony as losers, it came down to Jo and Lightning. Since Lightning proved to be the bigger liability in the challenge, Lightning was the first member voted off and to take the Flush of Shame.

In Saving Private Leechball, Jo, Heather and Alejandro wants Gwen to create an alliance with them, knowing that Duncan would follow Gwen. Gwen realizes the trio's intention but is happy because it puts her in a position of power. At the same time, Gwen is sadden to learn that everyone on her team believes she is a villain and was purposely trying to be mean to Courtney. Eventually, the Vultures lose due to arguing and voted off Jo. After the elimination, Duncan was switched onto the Heroic Hamsters and Courtney was placed on the team due to their actions within the episode.

In Food Fright, Alejandro originally lost the eating/obstacle course challenge for the team after getting stung by a bee that was hidden from Sam's shirt while trying to stop him winning, but it was revealed that Sam cheated by hiding the remaining pieces of pancakes in order to get through the challenge, causing the Hamsters to forfeit and the Vultures ended up being the real winners of the day.

In Moon Madness They start out at the spa hotel with Courtney thinking about Scott. At the Challenge Chris gives the Team a map to navigate the Forest. As Heather looks at the map Alejandro comments about the animals and Heather compliments him. The Team believes that she has a been changed by the Blue Harvest Moon. Courtney and Gwen begin to bond over this. They reach a bridge were Gwen doesn't cross and Go's her Own way. Scott then go's across the bridge first and runs into a beaver after affected by the Blue Harvest Moon. Scott then swings the Beaver on to the Bridge who breaks it after nawing on the Rope. As they cross Heather almost falls but Alejandro saves her.She is then found to be faking her change. All of the team expect for Gwen and Courtney crosses the finish line. They are then fighting a affected duck unit the Moon is turned back to normal and the two crosses the finish line before mike. At elimination Scott volunteered to go back to Boney island. Cameron later quits but instead of taking the flush of shame he is spared and sent to the team.

In You Regatta Be Kidding Me, Chris announces the merge in this episode, officially breaking up The Villainous Vultures, making Alejandro, Cameron, Courtney, Gwen and Scott the only members of the team to make it to the merge.
