[[folder:Strong Woman]]
!!!!!!Voiced by:
!!!!!!Debut: Super Hard [=PCness=]

The new vice-prinicpal at South Park Elementary and a love interest to [=PC=] Prinicpal.

* DistaffCounterpart: To [=PC=] Prinicpal.
* HotTeacher: She's noticeably attractive, though she doesn't go out of her way to look hot.
* PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad: Subverted. Strong Woman turns out to be calm and understanding, pointing out micro-aggressions but not making a big deal about them.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Strong Woman turns out to be this, despite her name and first couple of scenes implying she'll be a comedic buffoon similar to [=PC=] Principal. She genuinely wants to make the school a safer place for all students, and when Kyle tries to get her on his quest against Terrence and Phillip, she simply notes that pointing fingers at TV for kids' antics is illogical and usually leads to a slippery slope of MoralGuardians crusades.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to [=PC=] Prinicpal's red. Strong Woman seems fully aware that not everyone is going to be as up to date with gender relations and points out how improvements can be made with no drama, a sharp contrast to [=PC=] Principal who believed that people were intentionally being politically incorrect.
* StarCrossedLovers: Parodied. Strong Woman and [=PC=] Prinicpal ''could'' start dating any time they want, but both feel that dating co-workers is outright impossible.
* StrawFeminist: Averted. Strong Woman wants to make the school environment better for the female students, but she doesn't hate men and is willing to listen to their concerns; when Kyle came to her office, she actually listened to his suggestion and even though she turned it down, she explained why.
* TakeThat: Strong Woman is one to self-proclaimed "strong women" who try to find sexism in everything such as how when she first introduces herself to the faculty she assumes they would treat her differently if she was a guy. Downplayed as she's still a pretty reasonable person who listens to everyone's problems regardless of gender, unlike how PC Principal was a caricature of PC culture for almost the entirety of his debut season.

!!!!!!Voiced by: Trey ParkerIsaac Hayes (regular voice), Peter Serafinowicz (Darth Chef)




The boys' eccentric homeroom teacher throughout most of the series. He used to carry a sarcastic hand puppet with him (two, actually: Mr. Hat and Mr. Twig), but later left them behind. His gender and sexual preferences have been in constant flux.

* AngryWhiteMan: He's been intolerant of pretty much everyone and everything, believing at various points in the series that gay marriage, teaching evolution, wealthy black people and immigrants are all a threat to the American way of life, regardless of how they may affect him.
* AntiVillain: After he finds out he might actually win the presidency, he becomes horrified that he could take the job from someone more qualified. He then proceeds to do all he can to sabotage his campaign. [[spoiler:After actually becoming president he drops the "Anti" part.]]
* AnythingThatMoves: He's ''been'' anything that moves and back again at this point.
* ApatheticTeacher: When he's not busy belittling his students, he basically phones in his job.
* AxCrazy: Has tendencies of this.
* BadassTeacher: He's had moments of this, but one thing that cements this is during "Where My Country Gone", where he's the first to boldly stand up to PC Principal, and the first to ''get away with it''.
* BadBadActing: His ventriloquist act... isn't.
* BigBadEnsemble: With Bedrager, the Member Berries, and [[spoiler:Gerald]] in Season 20.
* BoomerangBigot: He becomes homophobic after his sex reassignment surgery drives away Mr. Slave, then [[DoesNotLikeMen misandric]] once more men are driven away by his sex change (thus turning toward lesbianism), and transphobic when he finally gets the sex change reversed.
* {{Catchphrase}}: Occasionally, when he or Mr. Hat is angry:
--> "You go to hell! You go to hell and [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment you die]]!"
** In Season 20, he starts saying, "Oh, jeez!" in a scared tone frequently.
* BrilliantButLazy: How else can you explain such an ineffectual teacher building an marketing something that made planes obsolete?
* CloudCuckoolander: He believes Mr. Hat and Mr. Twig to be sentient beings, for starters. [[spoiler: Though eventually, it turns out ''[[TheCuckoolanderWasRight they are]]''.]]
* ComedicSociopathy: His actions are all played for comedy.
* CompanionCube: Mr. Hat and Mr. Twig. [[spoiler:Subverted, as they actually are alive.]]
* TheCorrupter: The "Go God Go" episodes reveal that, had Garrison (after the first sex change) developed a relationship with evolutionary biologist and known atheist Richard Dawkins, he would've convinced Dawkins to use his beliefs to eradicate religion from the world by being as much of an asshole as humanly possible. This would've created the BadFuture Cartman got stuck in, where Garrison's influence sparked centuries of war and violence across the Earth simply because the three atheist factions followed Dawkins' (and Garrison's) example by insisting they each had the answer to the ultimate question: [[spoiler: what to name the faction of atheists]]. Thankfully, Cartman accidentally stops this from happening.
* DemotedToDragon: To the Member Berries.
* DemotedToExtra: Originally the second-most prominent adult on the show, he's now limited to a single line in scenes inside the classroom. Subverted in Seasons 19 and 20 however, when he returns to prominence with a vengeance.
* DepravedHomosexual: He's been a Depraved Homosexual, a Depraved Heterosexual, a PsychoLesbian... He's a depraved ''whatever''-his-orientation-is-at-the-moment. As Chef puts it:
-->"Children, there's a big difference between gay people and Mr. Garrison."
* DespairEventHorizon: He stated that he'll lose all faith in humanity if he gets elected to be president over Clinton. [[spoiler: He wins.]]
* DirtyCoward: In "Super Fun Time" he tries to sacrifice some children to save himself from gunmen.
-->Please, don't take me. Take the children, they're worth more for you!
* TheDreaded: Becomes this after [[spoiler:being elected president]]. The people of South Park are horrified at the very sight of him and he even manages to make [[spoiler:'''''PC Principal''''']] tremble in fear with his mere presence.
* DynamicCharacter: Of all the cast, Garrison's story is one of the most dramatic in the show, and wouldn't be out of place on a soap opera. Over the course of the series, he's gone from being a closeted homosexual, to an outed homosexual, then got a sex change so he was a heterosexual woman, became a lesbian, and then got another sex change so he's now a heterosexual man. Then he ran for president, then he got afraid of what would happen to the country if he actually won, before admitting to the entire nation that he's not a good person, and went on to become the president-elect.
* EvilCounterpart: Is hinted to be one for Big Gay Al. While Al is out and proud, stylish and wears a pink shirt, Mr. Garrison is self-loathing, plainly dressed and wears a green shirt. Mr. Garrison made Stan feel like a wuss for getting beaten by his sister, while Big Gay Al taught Stan that being gay isn't a bad thing. Big Gay Al is kind to animals, while Mr. Garrison rammed a gerbil up Mr. Slave's rectum. Mr. Garrison uses ''"fag"'' as a slur against gays, while Big Gay Al wants to reappropriate it to use against Harley riders. Both are mentor figures to the main boys and have had a relationship with Mr. Slave.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He becomes frightened of the reality of a person like ''him'' [[GoneHorriblyRight being the leader of the entire country]], and the ignorance that is fueling his supporters and campaign. And his efforts to sabotage himself are all for naught because they still soak up his every word.
-->'''Garrison''': I don't know what the fuck I'm doing. I had no idea I would get this far, but the fact of the matter is, I should not be President. Okay? I will fuck up this country beyond repair. I am a sick, angry little man.
* EvilIsPetty: When he [[spoiler:becomes President]] he goes around and tells everyone to suck his dick.
* EvilPuppeteer: Downplayed. He has his puppet Mr. Hat in the first few seasons, but although he's not exactly evil, he's a major {{Jerkass}}.
* FirstLawOfGenderBending: Played straight in the episode where he first gets the male-to-female operation. He changes his mind, but his testicles get destroyed and he is unable to go back to being a man until the Season 12 episode mentioned above. Then subverted in Season 12, when he gets another operation to go back.
* FreudianExcuse: Inverted. He has been deeply tormented all his life because his father ''didn't'' molest him as a child, thinking it meant that his father didn't love him. Bizarrely, his ''mom'' also thinks the same thing.
-->'''Garrison's Mom:''' That's not true! Your father ''loved'' you! Often!
** Possibly played straight as her reaction [[UnfortunateImplications implied she did molest him]].
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He goes from a simple 4th grade teacher to the [[spoiler:President of the United ''Fucking'' States]]
* GayConservative: Despite his ever-changing sexual orientation he is generally depicted as being one of the town's Republicans rather than a Democrat.
* GreenAndMean: Typically wears a green shirt.
* HairTriggerTemper: The only adult in South Park as remotely volatile as Eric Cartman.
* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: He was this way before coming out of the closet.
* {{Hypocrite}} / HypocriticalHumor: His hatred of the Canadian president was never presented as anything but this.
* IncompatibleOrientation: After becoming a Transwoman, he got this from men that swing both ways. Mr. Slave broke up with him because the latter is gay, and Richard Dawkins was {{Squick}}ed when Cartman blurted out that he had been born a male.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Got a sex-change operation because he wanted to be a woman. Mr. Slave was understandably upset, as Mr. Garrison expected him to just turn straight and accept a change he didn't get a say in. It gets worse in a later episode when trying to "take Mr. Slave back," completely failing to once more understand just why Mr. Slave left. And when Garrison learns Mr. Slave was going to marry Big Gay Al, Garrison decided to help make gay marriage illegal just out of spite.
* {{Jerkass}}: Though since his second change in Season 12, this has been toned down somewhat. He is, however, incredibly racist.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: In ''Where My Country Gone'', he [[spoiler: fucks the [[TheCaligula Canadian]] [[PresidentEvil President]] to death.]]
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Whenever he tries to teach children. From the first episode alone: "UsefulNotes/ChristopherColumbus discovered America and was the Indians' best friend. He helped the Indians win their war against Frederick Douglass, and freed the Hebrews from Napoleon, and discovered France." Becomes a RunningGag in later seasons when he tries to teach the children the plots of various popular plays and television shows, for example [[CrowningMomentOfFunny presenting the plots of Game of Thrones and Les Miserables as real history]].
* {{Leitmotif}}: As of ''Members Only'', his leitmotif has become a DarkReprise of "Hail to the Chief".
* MoralityPet: Kenny seems to be a student he has a soft spot for, as he spoke a heartfelt eulogy for him in ''Kenny Dies'' and tried to feed him when he was off life-support in ''Best Friends Forever.''
* NeverMyFault: Mr. Garrison often gets mad at his students when they show others in the town how little they actually know despite the fact that he's clearly never taught them any actual school subjects.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: As of season 20, he's become an {{Expy}} (or rather a [[TakeThat jab at]]) of Donald Trump.
* PetTheDog: In "Best Friends Forever", Mr. Garrison is arrested for trying to bring food and water to Kenny whilst the latter is in the hospital.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: He is racist, homophobic, and misogynistic among many other prejudices. In one Christmas special, he travels to non-Christian countries to admonish people for not celebrating Christmas in a particularly hilarious song.
* PresidentEvil: He gains the Republican nomination and eventually wins the 2016 Presidential election on a platform of fucking all the immigrants to death. [[spoiler:Of course, this could also be considered a subversion, as it's the ''member berries'' that have infected his mind following his attempts at self-sabotage.]]
* [[PuppetKing Puppet President]]: Despite [[spoiler:being President]], he little more than a pawn for the member berries to use.
* RapeAsBackstory: Averted, [[ArentYouGoingtoRavishMe much to his disappointment]].
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Wears a black suit and red tie after becoming President.
* SadistTeacher: His emotional imbalances cause him to be this quite often.
* SadlyMythtaken: In one episode of an early season, he gets ''homosexuals and vampires'' confused.
* SerialRapist: He as President Garrison has gone around, [[InsistentTerminology fucking his employees to death]].
* SoftSpokenSadist: His tone is calm, soft, and even [[FauxAffablyEvil courteous]] when telling [[spoiler: PC Principal]] to suck his dick.
* SpringtimeForHitler: Throughout Season 20, Mr. Garrison tried to sabotage his own Presidential campaign, from sitting during the National Anthem (which backfired due to the Anthem being rebooted by J.J. Abrams, allowing the person to either stand, sit, or kneel during the anthem) to telling dirty jokes during his campaign rallies, and ultimately, pleading with his followers to vote for Hillary Clinton. They were all for naught, as Garrison was elected President, due to interference by the Member Berries.
* StraightGay: While he's had his campy moments, he's by and large this, and you probably wouldn't be able to tell that he's gay just by the way he acts whenever he's in the classroom, unlike Big Guy Al, who's obviously gay.
* StrawMisogynist:
-->Well I'm sorry, I just don't trust something that bleeds for five days and doesn't die.
* ThenLetMeBeEvil: After despairing at the notion of someone like himself becoming President, he sinks into depression and questions the sanity of humanity. When he is elected, he jumps off the proverbial wagon and abuses his authority every chance he gets... [[SubvertedTrope but he's come under the influence of the Member Berries.]]
* TransparentCloset: For the first few seasons.
* {{Transsexual}}: Became a woman in Season 9 and then a man again in Season 12.
* TurnInYourBadge:
** When Garrison spouted racist speech toward the Canadian children at the elementary school, PC Principal promptly fired him. [[CreateYourOwnVillain These events let him to become President Garrison]].
** Attempted again in the eighth episode of Season 21, though [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil it doesn't end well for the ones who tried]].
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: In Season 19 he decides to run for president so he can kick the immigrants out of South Park. This leads to the whole town becoming the laughingstock of the whole country. To counter this, the locals gentrify the town to appear classy and enlightened. The upkeep costs more than the locals can afford and it's not long before the homeless population begins to rise, with Randy and several other people contemplating moving to another town to survive.
* VillainProtagonist: Of Season 20 along with [=Skankhunt42=].
* YouAreWhatYouHate:
** He was quite homophobic in the early seasons before coming to terms with his sexuality. Then he became homophobic again after becoming a woman... until s/he became a lesbian.
** He kills the evil Canadian president, only to become a politician fueled by sensationalist fervor himself. They even share similar stances on immigration.
