OverviewEditDave and Tyler are not on the same team in Total Drama Returns to the Island, although Dave, due to brain damage, hates Tyler for no explained reason. No matter how hard Tyler tries to make Dave befriend him, Dave refuses, resulting in his early elimination due to Tyler's popularity. They are on the same team in Total Drama Wild West, and Dave randomly decides to befriend Tyler, satisfying Tyler to some extent. Tyler loses his patience with Dave however when Dave's stupidity costs the team the challenge, leading to his early elimination once again, with one of the votes from Tyler.
In Total Drama Toxic Brawl they are both placed on the Toxic Sharks. Although they seem to be friends, Tyler rightfully knows that Dave is one of the most useless and weakest contestants of all-time. However, because Dave is an easy and gullible target thanks to brain damage, Tyler forms an alliance with him. Unfortunately, Dave is so unbearable that Tyler gets sick of him, and votes him off, even being aware of Dave's previous attempt to vote Tyler off for no good reason, angering Tyler, and making him happy that Dave is eliminated.
Tyler says sorry to all of the eliminated contestants, but Dave does not believe him and says that he should lose and be eliminated. Throughout the episode, when Tyler scores a point, Dave gets mad, and states that Sky or Duncan should win that point and this annoys Tyler a lot. When it came to Cameron having to choose who to take to the finale between Sky and Tyler, Dave really wanted Sky to be picked, and stated that Tyler doesn't deserve it at all compared to Sky.
Both Dave and Tyler are rooting for Sky to win. Later on, Dave tries to become friends with Noah, and Tyler warns Noah about Dave. Noah assured Tyler that he knows.
After Tyler won the challenge for his team, Dave is seen very happy and then they high five. Later on in the Confessional, Dave says that Tyler is a genius. When Sadie and Alejandro debate on if they should keep Dave or not, Tyler says that he could be useful.
After their team won the challenge, Tyler congratulated Dave telling him that he did a great job in the challenge. But it was soon revealed that the opposite team won the challenge instead. When Dave is deemed safe, Tyler congratulates him.
Dave asks his team mates if they should break up the fight going on between both Lightning and Tyler. Dave agrees with Tyler, that Courtney's elimination was shocking.
At the challenge, Tyler asks where Dave is, Dave then comes in running out of nowhere, shouting out to Tyler that he is here. Tyler then grabs Dave and throws him across the pond and tells him to get the flower. When it is revealed that Scott had the flower, Tyler tackles Scott trying to get the flower, leaving Dave stranded on the other side of the pond.
When Dave eats another maggot, Tyler is just seen extremely disgusted by him, after Alejandro already ate the first maggot. In the second round, Tyler got the question wrong, and says that he is extremely dumb. When Dave is seen shocked that he got it wrong, Tyler tells him that he is not a nerdy type person, and that he is a jock. Alejandro and Dave can't believe that Tyler is actually shocked that Tyler is eating the stew. Tyler swallows and then starts to choke, which made Samey shout out to everyone that Tyler is choking. Both Dave and Lindsay save Tyler, which Tyler spits out a few nails which hit Dave in the eye. Tyler starts to get mad at his team, telling them that they need to start gaining points. Dave tells Tyler that he will start winning for the team. In the last round, Dave costs that challenge, which Alejandro, Sadie and Tyler got mad at him. When Dave gets a marshmallow, Tyler glares at him.
Tyler wakes up along with everyone else in the Fun Zone. Dave states that Tyler was almost eliminated yesterday, saying he was super close to eliminating him.
After Tyler shoots Cameron out of the game, Cameron tells Tyler that if he wants to shoot someone, he should shoot Dave who is attacking Cameron. Tyler is seen surprised to see Dave, and asks what happened to him. Tyler then gets out his gun and shoots Dave multiple times out of disgust, and demands Dave to get off of Cameron. Dave then falls to the ground and is then dragged away, which Tyler looks at Dave in disgust.
