This article focuses on Courtney's alliances in which Courtney has formed throughout Total Drama Action, Total Drama World Tour, and Total Drama All-Stars.

The first of these alliances are introduced in Crouching Courtney, Hidden Owen, consisting of her and Beth during Total Drama Action. At one point, Courtney thought about trying to get Owen to join, which doesn't come to fruition. This short-lived alliance is disbanded one episode later in 2008: A Space Owen, after tension between the two forces Beth to quit the alliance. This leaves Courtney declaring herself the sole member of the alliance, only to be eliminated in the next episode.

Later, in Total Drama World Tour, she forms another alliance with Heather and Sierra during The EX-Files. This alliance is fueled by the three girls' mutual dislike of Gwen, and with the sole purpose of eliminating Gwen as an act of revenge. However, despite Heather later defecting and allying with Gwen and Cody, due to Courtney's obsession with throwing challenges to get rid of Gwen, Courtney and Sierra eventually succeed in their efforts. With the sole purpose of this particular alliance finally achieved, it disbands shortly afterward, and Courtney is eliminated four episodes later.

In Total Drama All-Stars, Courtney once again tries to form several alliances though none of them appears to be official. Due to her relationship with Scott and friendship with Gwen, she sees them as her strongest allies. Everything seems to go well for her until her efforts are wrecked by Mal, who exposes her true intentions in Sundae Muddy Sundae, causing everyone to turn against her for good.

The EX-Files

Heather and Courtney sing Boyfriend Kisser about Gwen.

By now, Courtney has gone from mourning to pure hatred for both Duncan and Gwen. She, Sierra, and Heather team up against Gwen, constantly making threats against her both in the game, and even against her life. This is only emphasized by the song Boyfriend Kisser, where they sing about their hatred for Gwen, and their determination to make her pay for what she's done. Sierra even joins in with her own reasons for hating Gwen. Throughout the episode, Courtney attempts to throw the challenge to make Team Amazon lose, so that they'll have the chance to eliminate Gwen. Heather notices this method much to her chagrin, as she considers winning to be more important than the chance to get rid of Gwen. Nonetheless, Courtney's efforts fail once again and they win the challenge. After Courtney gets her revenge on Tyler after his elimination by knocking him out of the jet, she vows to get the same revenge on Duncan and Gwen.

Picnic at Hanging Dork

Australia heather finger cross

Heather reveals that she lied to Courtney and plans to betray her at the next elimination ceremony.

At this point, Heather is clearly on the outs with Courtney's alliance, as she believes that Courtney's obsession with revenge is hurting their team. Courtney abruptly drags Heather into the lavatory confessional with the lights off to reassure that Heather is with her, and will vote out Gwen. Heather agrees to this, only to reveal in her own separate confessional that she had her fingers crossed, saying that it's one of the advantages to making deals in the dark. She makes good on this promise, and decides to betray Courtney and agree with Gwen that she'll switch her vote, and instead vote with her and Cody against Courtney despite her conflict. When Courtney came to her after they lose the challenge to confirm that Heather is clear on the plan, Heather lies and says that she is still with Courtney against Gwen. At the elimination ceremony, Heather does indeed vote for Courtney, as does Gwen. Courtney and Sierra both vote for Gwen. Also Cody, who is originally supposed to vote for Courtney, accidentally votes for Sierra due to being delirious and dizzy after being spun around multiple times while dangling off of a cliff, after Duncan throws an angry dingo onto him. This causes a tie in the votes, resulting in a tie-breaker challenge that Courtney and Gwen must participate in, which Courtney wins. Gwen is eliminated, much to Courtney's pleasure. After this, the alliance has no further purpose and is dissolved.
