Heroes vs. Villains
A Double Tribal Council is a game changing twist where two tribes must go to Tribal Council, as opposed to one. This twist first appeared in Survivor: Hawaii, and has since returned numerous times.
A Double Tribal Council can occur any time there are two or more tribes remaining in the game. They are usually announced before/at a challenge, and the reward from the challenge is usually individual immunity. Depending on the season, a game-wide twist such as Exile or Abduction may or may not be in play during this cycle.
A Double Tribal Council can also take place with three or more tribes remaining in the game, with the two lowest-scoring tribes at the Immunity Challenge going to Tribal Council with no members individually immune. This format can also be extended into a Triple Tribal Council, but with three contestants being voted out instead of two.
At a Double Tribal Council, the discussion phases of the two tribes usually occur simultaneously, with the results being delayed. Double Tribal Councils generally occur with larger casts (20+), for they eliminate contestants quicker than a usual immunity challenge/Tribal Council cycle.

- DB and Bailey are the only people eliminated at two different Double Tribal Councils.
- Survivor: Anarchy is the only season with 20 or more contestants to not have at least one Double Tribal Council. In its place, a post-merge Double Elimination was planned, but it was made unnecessary when Quanz quit the game.
- Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains and Survivor: Kamchatka are the only seasons with 21 or more contestants to not have at least two Double Tribal Councils. In the case of Heroes vs. Villains, this is because the 42-day format allowed an extra cycle to be played in lieu of a double tribal.
- In Survivor: Switzerland, a Double Tribal Council was planned for episode 3, but one of the Tribal Councils was canceled when Jad was disqualified.
