Total Drama: Revenge of the Island is the first season to introduce thirteen new players to Camp Wawanakwa, which was being rented to a biohazardous waste disposal company since the end of Total Drama Island.

On Netflix, Total Drama: Revenge of the Island contained unedited dialogue and full screen, 16:9 aspect ratio. However, the audio is slightly higher-pitched than normal. It was removed from Netflix in early 2018.
- This is the first Total Drama season not to feature any of the original twenty-two contestants competing.
- This season features the smallest cast of any season to date, with only thirteen contestants.
- This is the first season to feature an episode count of thirteen, thus making it the only season to have the same amount of episodes and cast members.
- This is currently the only season to feature a final two of the same gender, as both are males.
- This is the first season to include an immunity idol, which is similar to the immunity idols featured in Survivor.
- Although there is a non-elimination episode, this is the first, and currently only, season to not have any reward challenges.
- This is the first season where no two contestants have the same voice actor (although one contestant shares his voice actor with a contestant from the previous seasons).
- This is the first season where the entire cast has audition tapes.
- This is currently the last season to play the full theme song for the Opening sequence.
- This is the only season in which a male contestant is the first person to use the confessional.
- This is the first and only season in which both teams' lowest-ranking members are females.
- This is the first season in which one of the rewards for winning a challenge is getting to choose who is eliminated next, as Scott won this in Grand Chef Auto and Lightning won this in The Enchanted Franken-Forest.
- This is the first season in which the final four consists of three finalists who are of one gender, and one finalist of the other gender. In this case, three males and one female.
- This season shares many notable similarities with Total Drama Island:
- Both take place entirely at Camp Wawanakwa.
- Both feature the elimination area happening at the Bonfire pit, with marshmallows being the symbols of safety.
- Both feature similar opening sequences.
- Both feature a red team and a green team that are named after animals. The only difference is first season's animals were normal, but season four's animals were mutated.
- Both feature the exact same confessional.
- Counting Owen's ending of The Very Last Episode, Really!, both seasons are the only two in which the highest-ranking members of both teams were males.
- This is the second consecutive season where the number of days is not confirmed.
- This is the second conescutive season in which the winner in the United States is not the same as in Canada.
- This is the second season in which the winner manages to keep their money, the first being Total Drama Action.
- This is the second season not to contain any two-part episodes, the first being Total Drama Action.
- Truth or Laser Shark and Ice Ice Baby are the only episodes in which none of the original contestants made a cameo appearance.
- This season features more team swaps than any other season in the series, as they were following below:
- Brick first switched from the Mutant Maggots to the Toxic Rats after volunteering for elimination in Finders Creepers.
- Scott and Jo switched teams after Sam's elimination in Runaway Model.
- Dakota was brought back and put on the Mutant Maggots in A Mine Is a Terrible Thing to Waste, while she was originally on the Toxic Rats before.
- It is revealed in The Enchanted Franken-Forest that three years have passed since the first season ended.
- This is the second cosecutive season without a special.
- This is the first season to air in the United States at 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio instead of 4:3 aspect ratio, like the three previous seasons.
- Chris' statement of renting the island to a toxic company is inconsistent with the events of Total Drama Action as the island is consistently revisited, but there is no sign of any pollution.
- This is the first season where the superior team is the red team, unlike Total Drama Island and Total Drama Action.
- This is the first season not to dedicate at least one episode to eliminated contestants, such as Haute Camp-ture did in Total Drama Island and the Aftermath show did the previous two seasons.
