A description of characters from the show.


!Beavis and Butt-Head
[[folder: Main Duo]]

([[SelfDemonstrating/BeavisAndButthead Also see their Self-Demonstrating page, here.]])

* AllMenArePerverts: The two really want to score.
* AntiRoleModel: They're good examples of how not to behave. [[MisaimedFandom Though some failed to realize this.]]
* CasanovaWannabe: HilarityEnsues whenever Beavis and Butt-Head try to get laid.
* CharacterDevelopment: Or what passes for it. They started out as a couple of complete (and in Beavis's case, pyromaniacal) sociopaths who love breaking stuff, damaging property, etc. with no concern for the consequences to anyone else. As the series progressed, this got toned down to them just being a couple of ChaoticStupid idiots who were simply too moronic to realize the consequences of their actions...on top of not caring anyway. Season 11 brought back some of the sociopathy, though.
* ChaoticStupid: All they care about is food, girls, heavy metal, and whatever captures their interest at the moment, most notably, any sort of carnage, to which effect they were too amused by the wreckage of an airplane crash to help the victims. They're too lazy and stupid to care about anything else, like work or their education. Sometimes their actions may cause harm to someone unintentionally.
* {{Delinquents}}: Mostly through their stupidity.
* {{Determinator}}: They don't give up on their quests easily... even if it means almost certain death. They just keep going.
* FreeRangeChildren: They live in a house without parents or guardians. They also hate school and their jobs, but for some reason, continue going to both. They sometimes do mention their mothers but they are never seen, so it's likely their mothers are almost never around, as seen with how their home has electricity, water and phone service, so it's easy to assume their mothers would be the ones to handle the bills, as the boys can't even handle school work and rarely have any money.
* GeniusDitz: They're incredibly stupid most of the time, but when they're commenting on music videos (and {{Reality Show}}s in the 2011 episodes) they can be surprisingly witty and clever with their comments.
* {{Gonk}}: Not incredibly obvious in the show, but if one were to [[UncannyValley bring them to]] [[http://files.doobybrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/real-life-beavis-and-butthead.jpg life...]]
* HehHehYouSaidX: Almost every time they hear anything that can possibly be construed as a sexual innuendo.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: If only because nobody else wants to hang out with them, with the exception of Stewart, who they can't stand and actively try to avoid.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Even when they get their asses kicked by Todd, they still think he's cool and aspire to join his gang. In fact, every single hoodlum, criminal, and Jerkass they meet is "cool" by their standards. Then again, when you consider their priorities and interests, it's not that surprising.
* TheHyena: Their constant laughter is one of their defining traits.
* IronButtMonkey: They've never had any permanent side effects from their innumerable AmusingInjuries.
* {{Jerkass}}: Both of them are obnoxious idiots, Butt-Head especially, who laugh at other peoples' misfortunes and cause destruction, [[ItAmusedMe because they think it's cool]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite their perverted teenage boy qualities, creator Creator/MikeJudge [[WordOfGod has said]] that both of them are [[InnocentlyInsensitive innocent and they really don't mean to cause any harm]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: They never help anything if it doesn't benefit with their selfish needs. In one of the rare moments that they actually do work or help, they ended up making things worse. And the rarer times they actually do wind up doing some good, more often than not it's a [[SpringtimeForHitler misfire]] of them ''trying to make things worse''.
* KarmaHoudini: Both of them have gotten away with a lot of things that they shouldn't have, even crashing a plane in the Middle East.
* LaughablyEvil: Played with to "Laughably Stupid" Neither of the two are people you want to come across if they exist in real life. But it's hard not to laugh at their antics and their stupidity.
* LovableSexManiac: Though they can never score.
* MadeOfIron: Seriously, how are they still alive after everything they've been put through? Because, as it says in the content warning, "Beavis and Butt-Head are not role models. They're not even human; they're cartoons. Some of the things they do would cause a person to get hurt, expelled, arrested, and possibly deported. To put it another way: Don't try this at home."
* {{Malaproper}}: Because of their low IQ, they constantly mishear some words as something else; often as something sexual.
* MetalHead: As shown in the {{Music/Metallica}} and Music/{{ACDC}} shirts they always wear.
* MinorLivingAlone: They definitely don't live with their parents, and no other adult authority figure (outside of the Highland High staff) is ever seen or mentioned. The show never explains how this happened, and no one at their school seems aware of it. Though it's hinted they live with their mothers (and as mentioned above, it's likely they handle the house bills), but they're just never around. From their talk about them and the movie, it's heavily hinted that they're actually prostitutes or call girls.
* OnlyOneName: Unlike most of the other characters, their full names are never revealed.
* ThePigPen: They care nothing about their personal hygiene. This is actually part of the plot of the episode "Tainted Meat," where Beavis's privates are itching like crazy, and he can't stop scratching it even at Burger World, where he doesn't even bother to wash his hands before putting patties on the grill. Everyone who eats at Burger World as a result gets food poisoning, with health experts outright stating that they have ''never'' seen such an aggressive bacteria.
* RedOniBlueOni: Beavis and Butt-head, respectively. Beavis is more emotional and prone to outbursts, while Butt-Head is a lot lazier.
* TheSlacker: Very much so. The two never do their homework, constantly screw around at their jobs, and overall spend most of their time watching TV and doing whatever the plot drives them to do.
* SignatureLaugh: Uhhh-huh-huh-huh! Hehehehehehe!
* StupidEvil: They hate virtually everything that has nothing to do with junk food, sex, mayhem or the music they like, including air.
* ThisLoserIsYou: Pretty much the ultimate example. Beavis and Butt-Head are stereotype of metalheads, which is a majority of their fans.
* ToiletHumor: They like to make jokes about "Number Two" in addition to their sexual humor.
* TooDumbToLive: They can barely read and they do stuff that would get a normal person killed, or at least paralyzed. [[Franchise/TheSimpsons Homer Simpson]] is a genius compared to these two morons.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: The boys love junk food in general. Gas station nachos, fast food like burgers and pizza, candy, chips, and tacos just to name a few. In fact, one of the few motivations for the boys to bother to even show up at school is when the cafeteria serves tacos.
* UngratefulBastard: They usually won't thank anyone who helps them.
* UltimateJobSecurity: They've never shown any ounce of competence at their job at Burger World and have gotten the place closed for health code violations at least once, not to mention blatant workplace violations such as fighting each other in an attempt to earn workman's comp or going "on strike" and just refusing to work for no reason. Yet they were never shown having been fired.
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist: They're both mischievous delinquents whose antics make cause all sorts of trouble.
* VillainProtagonist: They're both jerkasses, and their main antagonist is a principal who's suffering from nervous breakdowns because of the duo's abuse.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Especially since almost everyone else who knows them can't stand them.
--> "Shut up, buttknocker!" *whack*
* WhoWouldBeStupidEnough: These guys would. One example being flying a kite during a thunderstorm after watching a documentary of Creator/BenjaminFranklin's famous kite flying; when a MediaWatchdog interviews them and sees the TV listing, she said "no it couldn't be" so she asked if they watching anything else, Butt-Head said they also watched music videos.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Considering Butt-Head's endless tormenting and abuse of Beavis. The two of them put together also count as this for Stewart.

[[folder: Beavis]]

One of our two, er, ''heroes''. Along with his HeterosexualLifePartner Butt-Head, he spends his life unwillingly going to school, working at [[BurgerFool Burger World]], watching TV, trying to "score" with "chicks", and causing trouble. He's (even) dumber than Butt-Head, and more than a little crazy. He has an alter ego called "The Great Cornholio" that emerges when he has too much sugar or caffiene.
Tropes associated with Beavis:

* AffablyEvil: Well… ''evil'' maybe a bit of a stretch, but whenever he's not causing chaos along with Butt-Head, he can be genuinely friendly and outgoing towards people (if in a somewhat obnoxious way).
* AmbiguousDisorder: It's occasionally hinted that he has genuine mental problems on top of his stupidity. For example, in "Most Wanted", he says that he [[HearingVoices hears voices]] and has pyromania ("Fire! Fire! Fire!"). On another occasion, he took a lie detector test, and the one thing that came up as "True" was his statement that he "killed a bunch of people once," although this inexplicably happened in 1969, a full decade before his birth. And then there's the whole "Great Cornholio" thing...
* BadBoss: In "Huh-Huh-Humbug" as an {{Expy}} of [[Literature/AChristmasCarol Ebenezer Scrooge]].
* BerserkButton: Out of every insult slung at him, "buttknocker" is the one that particularly sets Beavis off, as seen in "Murder Site".
* CatchPhrase: As Cornholio, he has two: "I am the Great Cornholio! I need TP for my bunghole!" and "Are you threatening me?"
* CheatedAngle: He nearly always has his face in ¾ view, no matter which way his body is facing.
* TheChewToy: More prone to AmusingInjuries.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: More eccentric and crazy than Butt-Head.
* TheDitz: Butthead isn't too bright, but Beavis takes this UpToEleven.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: When he gets behind the wheel during a Drivers-Ed class. He actually makes unflappable Mr. Buzzcut scream in terror as they hurtle into something.
* DumbBlonde: Has blonde hair and the IQ of a brick.
* ExtremeDoormat: He generally just stands there and ''lets'' Butt-Head abuse him constantly, though he does have limits.
* HatesBeingTouched: This may be a result of the molestation he mentions in their commentary on Music/{{Deadmau5}}'s "Ghosts and Stuff", though Beavis, being Beavis, is fairly nonchalant about the whole thing when he talks about it. Overall, though, he specifically dislikes being touched by men, but is quite okay with women touching him.
* HereWeGoAgain: At least two episodes ("Choke" and "Pipe of Doom") end with Beavis doing the same stupid, dangerous thing that Butt-Head had done earlier in the story. In "Pipe of Doom", he climbs into the same pipe that Butt-head had just been rescued from and gets trapped himself. In "Choke", he actually chokes on ''the same piece of chicken'' that Butt-head [[NauseaFuel had previously half-eaten]].
* HiddenHeartOfGold: Downplayed, but he's definitely a ''lot'' nicer than Butt-Head.
* HotBlooded: More excitable and easily angered than Butt-Head.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Although he can be a prick similar to Butt-Head, he's never really been as malicious about it. [[note]]([[BerserkButton Unless he does something to piss him off...]])[[/note]] Its shown in the second Christmas special that most of Beavis negative traits are caused by being around Butt-Head, and that without him he would have been a somewhat dim, but nice guy.
* LargeHam: His Cornholio persona.
%%* LastNameBasis: Possibly.
* PerpetualSmiler: "Yeah, I've got a cool smile. *{{beat}}* See?"
* {{Pyromaniac}}: "FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!" It was toned down after that incident with the boy who set his trailer on fire and his mom blamed it on the show (despite that the family didn't have cable TV in their house), but when the show was revived in 2011, they brought it back.
* SawStarWarsTwentySevenTimes: The book ''Huh Huh for Hollywood'' says that he saw ''Film/{{Backdraft}}'' twenty seven times.
* SignatureLaugh: "HEH HEH, HMMHM, HEHEH.", does this very often to the point it's pretty much how he breathes.
* SonOfAWhore: Butt-Head constantly insinuates that Beavis's mother is a "slut". Beavis himself seems to confirm this when he tells Butt-Head "My mom's a slut, not a whore. She doesn't charge money."
* SplitPersonality: "The Great Cornholio", which emerges when Beavis has too much sugar, caffeine or drugs.
* TalkativeLoon: His Cornholio persona.
* TooDumbToLive: ''A lot'' of his {{Chew Toy}} moments are 100% his own fault. Whenever he gets injured because of his stupidity (particularly in ''Woodshop'' and ''Copy Machine''), [[WhatAnIdiot he tries to do the same thing again]]. He's also dumb enough to make ''[[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarepants Patrick Star]]'' look like '''Albert Einstein''' in comparison.

[[folder: Butt-Head]]

The series's other protagonist, Butt-Head is ''slightly'' more intelligent than Beavis (for whatever that's worth) and usually comes up with the duo's {{Zany Scheme}}s to meet girls or make money. He's also calmer and more emotionally stable than his partner.
Tropes associated with Butt-Head:

* BookDumb: Like Beavis, Butt-Head isn’t among the smartest when it comes to his studies, but he surely knows how to come up with plans in hopes to score and comes up with clever remarks about music videos.
* TheBully: He constantly hits and insults Beavis, and never even shows any concern whenever Beavis is in a life-threatening predicament (being severely beaten is usually the case). He's also seen as the more aggressive of the two.
* CannotTellAJoke: He's too stupid to come up with one that's fluent or doesn't involve innuendos.
* DeadpanSnarker: In his own dumb way.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Even teachers and other professionals, one wonders if that really is [[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep his name?]] The most popular {{Fanon}} name for him seems to be Buford.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Butt-Head would go out of his way to see a woman in the nude, but he has his limits when it come to a guy’s body… he doesn’t want to see any part of a guy in the nude, especially Beavis. He often made it clear that he doesn’t want to see Beavis’s privates.
* FullNameBasis: It's not just his real name, it's his first and last names combined! One episode has another person asking Butt-Head his name. He replies that it's "Butt". When the other character asks what his family name is, he replies "Head". [[FridgeLogic Which makes you wonder if Beavis's full name is Beavis Head, if you buy the fan theories about him and Butt-Head being half-brothers or cousins...]]
* HiddenDepths:
** He's very knowledgeable about a number of things you wouldn't expect, most notably Myth/ClassicalMythology. Though when you think about it, it's hardly surprising he'd know about Sterculius, being that he's the Roman god of feces.
** Like Beavis, he can also come with some very insightful commentary on pop culture. This is especially prevalent in the revival season.
* {{Irony}}: Enjoys constantly insulting Beavis by calling his mom a slut. All the while his own mom was heavily implied to be a slut herself in the movie BeavisAndButtheadDoAmerica.
* {{Jerkass}}: Unlike Beavis, Butt-Head has no redeeming features whatsoever. It's even been stated that the world would literally be a better place without him there to cause havoc.
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: He has an answer for every question Beavis asks, and talks with full confidence when he does so, but is still always dead wrong.
* TheLeader: Beavis normally just goes along with his ideas.
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: He said it was cool when he ''got ran over by a school bus'' rather than realizing he almost got killed.
* NeverMyFault: Whenever they both screw up something, he always blames it on Beavis, who, being the stupidest of the two, apologizes.
* SignatureLaugh: "UH HUH UH". Like Beavis, he does this so often that it's pretty much how he breathes.
* ToxicFriendInfluence: In the ChristmasEpisode "It's a Miserable Life", Butt-Head is taken to an alternate world where he doesn't exist. One of the changes show that Beavis turned out to be a much better person without him. He's still an idiot, just much nicer and actually pleasant.
* WouldHurtAChild: During a visit to Mexico, the duo sees several kids around a pinata while one kid is playing with fireworks (something the two specifically wanted out of the trip). Once the pinata is broken and most of the kids are distracted by the candy, Butt-Head grabs the club and knocks the kid out cold in order to steal his fireworks.

!Highland High Students
[[folder: Stewart Stevenson]]

A hapless nerd who hangs out with Beavis and Butt-Head--not because they like him, but because he'll let them get away with almost anything.
Tropes associated with Stewart:

* AlliterativeName: His last and first name begin with a a "St" sound.
* ButtMonkey: He'd be TheChewToy if he appeared more often.
* ComedicUnderwearExposure: In the banned episode "Stewart's House" where Beavis and Butt-Head walk into his house to watch free cable. They then strip him down to his underwear, hang him on a coat hanger and shove random stuff like sand, rubbing alcohol, and even a cactus down his rear.
* TheConscience: He's usually the one to tell Beavis and Butt-Head that what they're doing could have horrible consequences. Unfortunately for him, they never listen.
* ExtremeDoormat: Beavis and Butt-Head walk all over him. And in ''It's A Miserable Life'', it's shown he would still have his self-esteem, if not for Butt-Head.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Like Mr Van Driessen, Stewart just doesn't grasp that Beavis and Butt-Head despises him, and never stops thinking of them as his best friends despite all the abuse they put him through. This despite that he has several friends who are more like him, such as the dorky P.A.T kids.
%%* NiceGuy
* OlderThanTheyLook: Is supposed to be roughly the same age as the duo, but looks more like a little kid. Acts like it too.
* TakeThat: Wears a Winger shirt, and his wimpiness is compared to the main duo's Music/{{Metallica}} and Music/{{ACDC}} shirts.
* SelfServingMemory: In his flashback in "Beavis And Butt-Head Are Dead", he remembers himself and the duo spending time together as the best of friends. Tellingly, the only other person without a real flashback from older episodes in this episode is Butt-Head, who misremembers himself scoring with a classmate.
* VocalEvolution: His voice was deeper and more emotionless in earlier episodes.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Though Beavis and Butt-Head don't consider him a friend.

[[folder: Daria Morgendorffer]]

Daria is one of Beavis and Butt-Head's classmates. Intelligent but disaffected, she's amused by the duo's antics, and often makes sarcastic remarks that go right over their heads.
Tropes associated with Daria:

* AscendedExtra: She got a slightly larger role in the comic series, and then [[WesternAnimation/{{Daria}} got her own spin-off]].
* BrainyBrunette: She's a wise-cracking TeenGenius with brown hair.
* BreakoutCharacter: Got her own show after ''Beavis and Butt-Head'' got cancelled.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Especially evident in the Marvel tie-in comics. She starts out as a more generic know-it-all but gains the wry, unflappable, sarcastic streak we all know and love later on.
* DeadpanSnarker: Mostly towards Beavis and Butt-Head.
* InSeriesNickname: Beavis and Butt-Head are really fond of calling her "Diarrhea".
* LimitedWardrobe: Like the rest of the characters, though in this series, she had three regular outfits (Her third one, which included her white shirt, black jacket, was the one she was shown in the most)
%%* {{Meganekko}}
* OnlySaneWoman: Within her classmates, and possibly a good amount of the community.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Breaks out into hysterics at the word "masturbation" in "No Laughing" with the other students. Though this could've been due to the animation direction being "the students laugh", and the animators making her laugh along with the rest of the class. Also, people in their middle to early high school phases simply tend to crack up more at sexual humor. At this stage of her life, it's very likely she hadn't fully matured into the Daria everybody recognized.
* TeenGenius: As an honors student at Highland High.

[[folder: Cassandra]]

Another of B&B's classmates, Cassandra is a hippie-ish aspiring artist. She doesn't get much screen time, but the series hints that she has some disturbing HiddenDepths.
Tropes associated with Cassandra:

* AmbiguouslyGay: A big fan of notoriously lesbian singer K.D. Lang, though she also expresses a fondness for older men in other episodes. It's unclear if she herself really has lesbian tendencies or she simply loves K.D. Lang's music and is open minded enough that she doesn't care about the singer's sexuality.
* ElectraComplex: Talks about her own father in a creepily suggestive manner in "Animation Sucks".
* GranolaGirl: Like Van Driessen, she's a nature-loving hippie.
* HotForTeacher: Her story about how a teenage girl and her English teacher drown together implies she might be attracted to Mr. Van Driessen
%%* {{Meganekko}}
* NiceGirl: She's one of the few students in Highland High who isn't a JerkAss aside from Stewart. She seems to have a high tolerance for Beavis and Butt-Head's stupidity, and she even gave them advice in ''Animation Sucks.''
* TalkingToHerself: Played by Tracy Grandstaff, better known as the voice of Daria.

[[folder: Lolita and Tanqueray]]

Two trailer trash girls who are recurring objects of lust for Beavis and Butt-Head.
Tropes associated with Lolita and Tanqueray:
* AffectionateNickname: Tanqueray calls Beavis "sugar britches."
* EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference: They look completely different in "Tornado" than they do in "Date Bait" and "Teen Talk."
* FilleFatale: Especially in "Date Bait."
* MeaningfulName: "Lolita" implies their status as sex objects for the duo and for older men and "Tanqueray" is a brand of gin which implies their trailer trash background.
* PutOnABus: They appeared in three episodes between 1994 and 1995 and have never appeared again.
* ReallyGetsAround: Strongly implied, especially in "Teen Talk" where they make out with two older men just because Beavis and Butt-head weren't around, and tell Beavis and Butt-head that they starred in a porn video despite possibly being minors.
* TrailerParkTornadoMagnet: Their trailer park attracts a tornado in "Tornado."
* TheVamp: They take advantage of B&B in "Date Bait."

[[folder: Earl]]

One of the students of Highland High. He is a thug who brandishes a pistol.
Tropes associated with Earl:

* ADayInTheLimelight: A central character in ''Incognito'' as he threatened to harm the boys.
* ALighterShadeOfBlack: Compared to Todd, he's this. While he's a thug, he at least respects Mr. Van Driessen and is more willing to stand down from taking more extreme actions at the teacher's request.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: After a rival tried to shoot him during Mr. Van Driessen's class ''Incognito'', he shouted out that Mr. Van Driessen doesn't like being interrupted.
* HairTriggerTemper: In "Incognito", he had planed to ''kill'' the duo because they accidentally knocked a cigarette out of his hand. And in "Pierced", he overhears Beavis and Butthead laughing at his new earring and he beats them both up.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: He was ''in tears'' when Mr. Van Driessen had confiscated his pistol and other assorted weapons.
* RaceLift: Was originally African-American, but was changed to white to avoid accusations of racism. (Since he has a gun on his person.)

!Highland High Staff
[[folder: David Van Driessen]]

One of Beavis and Butt-Head's teachers, Mr, Van Driessen is an idealistic hippie who tries to help the boys by appealing to their better natures. Predictably, it never works.
Tropes associated with Mr. Van Driessen:

* AesopAmnesia: He's repeatedly learned that Beavis and Butt-Head are crude, destructive morons (particularly notable in the episode where they "clean" his house), yet continues to rather naively support and encourage them. Though it's justified as Van Driessen has an optimism very uncharacteristic of the Highland High staff.
* BerserkButton: He's very protective of his eight-tracks; Beavis and Butt-Head destroying his entire collection marked the one time in the series he angrily expressed an interest in killing them (Though he also immediately got buried underneath said collection). The rest of the time, however, he won't stand for them or any of his students being physically harmed by someone (see BewareTheNiceOnes below).
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Surprisingly, Van Driessen is very protective of Beavis and Butt-Head despite how poorly they treat him. In the episode ''Manners Suck'' he physically attacks Mr. Manners after Beavis falsely implies that Mr. Manners molested him.
* ButtMonkey: Is getting attacked by a [[BearsAreBadNews bear]], [[MadeofIron thrown through a bus window off a cliff]] and [[ItMakesSenseInContext flattened by Beavis in a rolling tire]] enough of a hint?
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Originally couldn't stand Beavis and Butt-Head like anyone else and actually threatened to kill them in "Cleaning House", but at least tolerated them more than most people would. However, in later episodes, this gets toned down, as he starts to care about them and become more likable and laid-back in tone. In fact, he defends Beavis and Butt-Head when they're missing and assumed dead--something he would never have done in earlier episodes. It's worth noting that even after his changed attitude towards the duo, he's among those praying for them to ''die'' at the beginning of "It's A Miserable Life", apparently because of the possibility [[LikeFatherLikeSon that they may end up breeding]].
* CoolTeacher: The best teacher at Highland High, and seems to gain a good deal of respect for it from the students, even from someone like the thuggish Earl. His efforts are completely wasted on Beavis and Butt-Head though.
* GranolaBoy: One of the few male examples of a vegetarian peace-lover.
* HippieTeacher: Literally. He looks as if he's still living in the 1960s.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: When it comes to Beavis and Butt-Head, he doesn't seem to grasp that the duo's problem isn't that they're misunderstood or don't get enough support; they simply don't have the level of humanity he's looking for in them.
* MadeOfIron: Not even 2 falls off of a cliff can keep him down.
* NewAgeRetroHippie: If he was any more of a hippie, he'd float away on a cloud of love.
* NiceGuy: He's the only teacher who's respectful towards Beavis and Butt-Head, and constantly encourages them that they can succeed if they put their hearts in it.
* NotSoAboveItAll: While for the most part, he's extremely accepting and forgiving of Beavis and Butt-Head, every now and then even Van Driessen will say something that shows he really hates and fears the duo just as much as everybody else. Like when he prayed to God in ''It's a Miserable Life'', expressing fear that the two would breed, and when he held a mock graduation ceremony in ''Graduation Day'' where he implied to Beavis and Butt-Head, in only so many words, that they have absolutely NO redeeming qualities or any future to look forward to.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: He's the only teacher that cares about his job and believes in doing the right thing, especially in ''Test Takers'' where he reports Principal [=McVicker=] to the schoolboard when he fills in Beavis and Butt-Heads' standardized tests so that they'll pass.
* RedOniBlueOni: Always Blue. He's calm, friendly, and unlike Buzzcut and [=McVicker=], tolerant of Beavis and Butt-Head.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Especially in the final episode before the revival, when the other teachers celebrate the death of Beavis and Butt-Head, and he asks them to be more respectful and empathic towards two dead students.
* UnfortunateNames: His last initials are V.D., which may not be coincidental given the source.
* VerbalTic: Ends most of what he says with "Mmkay?"

[[folder: Coach Bradley Buzzcut]]

A macho, ill-tempered veteran, Mr. Buzzcut is Beavis and Butt-Head's gym teacher. He tries to keep them under control through constant verbal abuse. Although he takes the opposite approach from Van Driessen, he fares no better with the dumbass duo.
Tropes associated with Mr. Buzzcut:

* AlliterativeName: Although his first name is never used in the series and only appears in the books.
* BerserkButton:
** Never punch him, even if you are about as strong as [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Mr Burns]]. ''Ever!''
-->'''Coach Buzzcut:''' (Face getting red with rage) You just made a fatal mistake, Mr. Candy-Ass! [[PreAssKickingOneLiner I hope you know something about hand-to-hand combat!]]
** Don't you dare tell him that you don't know anything about the Founding Fathers of America.
** Don't hit his students. Only he can do that.
* DeadpanSnarker: Sometimes is this. Especially towards the duo.
* TheDragon: To [[DeanBitterman McVicker]].
* DrillSergeantNasty: Made more apparent as he wore more formal attire in earlier episodes. He's also a marine.
* EqualOpportunityEvil: In ''A Baby Makes, Uh, Three,'' he doesn't seem very disgusted by the idea of homosexual couples raising children. He may be a JerkAss, but he's no bigot. Though, it could simply be because he thought it would humiliate Beavis and Butt-Head.
* HairTriggerTemper: It takes every ounce of his strength to not kill Beavis and Butt-Head.
* {{Jerkass}}: And not just towards Beavis and Butt-Head. He once ordered the class to beat up a newly transferred student.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: ...However, he won't stand for anyone who isn't part of the staff hitting ''his'' students, as witnessed in "Candy Sale."
-->'''Coach Buzzcut:''' This is ''my'' class! ''I'' do the ass-kicking around here!
* KarmaHoudini: Beats up and threatens Beavis and Butt-Head a lot and almost never gets punished.
* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: In ''P.T.A.,'' the duo outs him on his abusive methods at a P.T.A. meeting, causing him to receive angry letters questioning his disciplinary methods. "Baby Makes Uh, Three" has them get away with stuffing a bag of sugar into his car's gas tank. "They're Coming To Take Me Away, Huh-Huh'' implies that he was previously punished for his methods.
* KnightTemplar: He's trying to enforce responsibility and order in the classroom...with a mindset better suited to boot camp.
* MadeOfIron: It'll take more then getting hit by a ''steamroller'' to kill him.
* NeverMyFault: During his flashback montage in ''Beavis & Butt-Head Are Dead,'' the clips consisted of moments of him antagonizing the duo rather than the other way around with the other characters. This seems to imply that his hatred for the duo isn't as justified as others, since [[HatesEveryoneEqually they're not the only people]] [[KickTheDog that he treats horribly]].
* NoIndoorVoice: He barks out his lessons, demands, and lectures at the same volume--that of a drill-sergeant on the parade ground.
* RatedMForManly: Being a buff marine certainly makes him this.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red Oni to both Van Driessen and [=McVicker=].
* SadistTeacher: Goes ''far'' beyond a reasonable response when dealing with the duo, and often seems to go out of his way to humiliate them. He is shown to even torment his students that don't ignite his wrath, like Martin from ''The Young, Gifted, and Crude,'' as well as Beavis and Butt-Head when they don't throw the first punch.
* SemperFi: Buzzcut is a former United States Marine and [[UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar Vietnam War]] veteran.
* SurvivalMantra: After giving mouth-to-mouth to Beavis and Butt-Head ([[PyrrhicVillainy which was another attempt at humiliation by picking them out of the rest of the class]]), he's seen gargling and spitting repeatedly in the bathroom, repeating the following phrase over and over:
-->'''Coach Buzzcut:''' A Marine can stand anything! A Marine can stand anything! A Marine can stand ''anything!''
* TooKinkyToTorture: Shows signs of this in the infamous episode where he tells Butt-Head to "[[GroinAttack kick him in the jimmy]]" and his response is a strained-yet-enthusiastic: "Eee...YES! Do it ''again!''" He could also be trying to show up the boys by [[MadeOfIron proving to them how much pain he can really endure]], but still.
* UltimateJobSecurity: He's a {{Jerkass}} who berates his students, assaults them, encourages bullying, and threatens his students with bodily harm. Despite this, he manages to keep his job, presumably because Principal [=McVicker=] respects his views and often covers for him. The closest he gets to losing his job is in ''P.T.A.'', where Beavis and Butt-Head out him for his abusive behavior, which puts him under investigation.

[[folder: Principal [=McVicker=]]]

A nervous, high-strung bureaucrat who lives in terror of B&B and occasionally tries to get rid of them. Of course, he always fails.
Tropes associated with Mr. [=McVicker=]:

* TheAlcoholic: Has been driven to drinking and pill popping by the duo's antics.
* AntiVillain: Arguably, as he's the closest thing Beavis and Butt-Head have to an ArchEnemy.
* BackFromTheDead: Although he apparently died of a heart attack at the end of Season 7, he appears in the season 8 episode ''Dumb Design'' proving that he wasn't dead after all.
* BadBoss: In ''Test Takers'', when Mr. Van Driessen threatens to report him to the schoolboard for filling in Beavis and Butt-Head's standardized tests, [=McVicker=] fires him and blames him for Beavis and Butt-Head's incompetence.
* BaldOfEvil: He's not exactly evil, but he is bald and antagonistic.
* BerserkButton: Beavis and Butt-Head, to the point where he's almost always (justifiably) hostile towards them.
* ButtMonkey: Bad things happen to him, usually thanks to Beavis and Butt-Head.
* DeanBitterman: Mostly because of Beavis and Butt-Head.
* DirtyOldMan: In the movie, Beavis and Butt-Head walk in on him getting spanked by a prostitute.
* DrowningMySorrows: It's shown that the stress from having to deal with Beavis and Butt-Head causes Principal [=McVicker=] to drink heavily. He even keeps a bottle of liquor in his desk and takes hits off it while working.
* HairTriggerTemper: The things that Beavis and Butt-Head say or do tend to get him angry pretty quickly.
* HeroAntagonist: Considering Beavis and Butt-Head's status as [[VillainProtagonist Villain Protagonists]]. Especially since most of his actions toward them are either justifiable responses to their shenanigans or efforts to keep them under control.
* HollywoodHeartAttack: Suffers one in the finale of the show's original run
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Yes, big time.
* {{Jerkass}}: Most of the time, he's cruel to Beavis and Butt-Head, even wishing death upon them.
* JerkassHasAPoint: His anger towards Beavis and Butt-Head is reasonable since the two are constantly causing trouble.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's much nicer and calmer when Beavis and Butt-Head aren't involved. Also he did once show leniency to Beavis when he apologized for misbehaving in "The Great Cornholio".
* NervousWreck: Due to Beavis and Butthead's abuse. "It's a Miserable Life" shows that without Butthead and his ToxicFriendInfluence on Beavis, he's a lot calmer and still has his hair.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Despite his clear disdain for Beavis and Butt-Head's disruptive behavior, there are many instances where [=McVicker=] is shown to be almost as amoral and conniving as they are. For example, in the episode "Wet Behind The Rears," Beavis and Butt-Head are showering in their underwear after gym class. Suddenly, the fire alarm goes off, and they are forced to get out before they can put their clothes back on. Cue the rest of the school pointing and laughing at them and the grand revelation that the fire alarm was deliberately set off by [=McVicker=] and Buzzcut to humiliate Beavis and Butt-Head.
* PetTheDog: In "The Great Cornholio" when Beavis apologizes for being disruptive, [=McVicker=] decides to just let him go without punishing him (as it's the first time either of the duo has ever apologized for anything), even saying that he's [[SoProudOfYou proud of him]].
* RedOniBlueOni: The Blue Oni to Buzzcut's Red. Buzzcut is abusive to all his students and has NoIndoorVoice, while [=McVicker=] is only really angry when Beavis and Butthead are involved. He's also a Red Oni to Van Driessen.
* SitcomArchNemesis: He's an overworked, stressed-out principal, and rather old-fashioned in his thoughts towards student discipline, but he's not exactly EVIL. But then again, it's still hilarious to watch Beavis and Butt-Head drive him nuts, too.
* VerbalTic: His noticeable "Uhhhh".
* VillainousBreakdown: Well, more ''antagonistic'' than ''villainous''. The episode "Breakdown" centers around [=McVicker=] having one of these. In the show's original finale, his reaction upon seeing Beavis and Butt-Head alive can also count as this.
** He has one in the episode "School Test" when he finds out that all the time Beavis and Butt-head spent doing their standardized tests and all they wrote was their names. He angrily kicks a chair and starts cheating on their tests, and when Van Driessen states that he will have to report this, [=McVicker=] fires him and blames him for the duo's stupidity.

!Other Adults
[[folder: Tom Anderson]]

The duo's next-door neighbor and frequent victim. He's smart enough to realize that the boys are a menace, but too old and senile to do anything about it.
Tropes associated with Mr. Anderson:
* AesopAmnesia: Keeps rehiring the duo because he keeps forgetting what they look like, despite wrecking his yard every time. He does eventually catch on and stops hiring helpers for his yard work, not that it stops Beavis and Butt-Head from ruining things.
* BadassNormal: For all of his ButtMonkey tendencies, Anderson does knock a man flat with one punch in "Steamroller".
* BlindMistake: Even with his glasses on he has blurry vision which is why Beavis and Butt-Head are able to fool him half the time.
* ButtMonkey: Every time he hires the duo to work on his yard, something bad happens. And even then, something wrong is bound to happen to him if Beavis and Butt-Head even go near him. Taken UpToEleven in the movie where [[spoiler: he's mistaken for a terrorist]].
* {{Catchphrase}}: "What in the hell?!"
* CoolOldGuy: He's fairly laid-back and friendly, as long as things aren't working against him.
* {{Eagleland}}: In TheMovie, he's very patriotic and is a veteran of two foreign wars (The Korean War and The Vietnam War, most likely).
* OnlySaneMan: One of the most level-headed adults in the series.

[[folder: Mr. And Mrs. Stevenson]]
Stewart's less-than-ideal parents.
Tropes associated with the Stevensons:

* AbusiveParents: Mr. Stevenson has demonstrated that when confronted with an issue (such as the uncovering of his porno stack), he will essentially try to pin all the blame on Stewart. Not to mention how he was pretty willing to have Stewart get his ass kicked by Harry Sachz to save himself.
* AssholeVictim: Mr. Stevenson becomes a ''literal'' example at the end of "Prank Call". See below.
* AssShove: Mr. Stevenson fell victim to this when Harry Sachz attacked him under the impression that he was the one behind the repeated prank-calls that Sachz had to deal with.
* DirtyCoward: Mr. Stevenson shows this at times, such as the AbusiveParents example above.
* {{Jerkass}}: Mr. Stevenson, as shown in the episode "Prank Call".
* LaserGuidedKarma: Mr. Stevenson, after trying to get Harry Sachz to go after Stewart to save himself, ends up [[AssShove having a phone shoved where, in Harry's words, he'd "have an awful hard time dialing it."]]
* MyBelovedSmother: Mrs. Stevenson treats Stewart as though he were a much younger child, such as "shielding his mind from corruption" on TV. She often justifies it due to being a mother; however, considering the company he likes to keep in Beavis and Butt-Head [[WithFriendsLikeThese one can't blame her for wanting to protect him]].
* StacysMom: Mrs. Stevenson, to Butt-Head at least who periodically makes passes at her.

[[folder: Hamid]]

A character created for the 2011 {{revival}}, Hamid appears to be an immigrant from the Middle East. He's yet another adult victim of Beavis and Butt-Head--he's lost two jobs due to their antics.
Tropes associated with Hamid:
%%* BigOlUnibrow
* ButtMonkey: Is constantly on the receiving end of the boys' antics.
* FunnyForeigner: Appears to be from somewhere in the Middle East.
* HonestJohnsDealership: Hamid himself isn't particularly unscrupulous but he does end up working for one at one point.
* NewJobAsThePlotDemands: He's at a new job each time we see him, usually because Beavis and Butt-head did something to get him fired from the last one.
* OperatorFromIndia: Subverted in "Tech Support." He is much more likely from the Middle East than India and obviously lives in Highland instead too.

[[folder: Crazy Old Farmer/Janitor]]

A creepy, mysterious old man who appears in only a few episodes--fortunately for Beavis, because this character has killed him ''twice''.
Tropes associated with... whatever this dude's name is:

* AxCrazy: Cemented when he kills Beavis.
* BadassGrandpa: The only one to have successfully killed Beavis.
* BaldOfEvil: He's bald and psycho.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Kills Beavis just for trespassing on his lawn.
%%* {{Jerkass}}
* KarmaHoudini: Presumably because he only attacks the duo near the end of the episodes that he appears in.
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: Has a creepy laugh whenever he's about to do something horrific.
* TheSociopath: Shows no mercy for his victims.
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: Although this is not a "saccharine" show and it's probably played for laughs, he certainly is much more frightening and creepier than any other villain on this show.

[[folder: Todd Lanuzzi]]

A local thug who is the unwilling recipient of Beavis and Butt-Head's hero worship. While he regards the boys with open contempt and frequently beats them up, they admire him too much to leave him alone.
Tropes associated with Todd:

* AntiRoleModel: Beavis and Butt-Head worship him, despite being a ruthless thug.
* BadassMustache: Which makes him more intimidating.
* TheBully: He often [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beats the other-loving hell]] out of Beavis and Butt-Head ([[HorribleJudgeofCharacter not that they mind, though]]).
* TheCasanova: Almost all the girls get him.
* EvenEvilHasStandards:
** In the BreatherEpisode, he doesn't give Beavis and Butt-Head a beating because they handed over some money like he told them to, so he doesn't have a reason to do it. Though he does immediately end up crashing into another car and picks a fight with the driver instead.
** In the Halloween episode, Todd thought Beavis was high when he saw him as Cornholio.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: At least to the extent that Beavis & Butt-Head want to join his gang.
* EvilIsPetty: Even accounting for the fact that he's not much more than a local hoodlum, his actions against Beavis and Butt-Head are extremely petty. He's stolen their snacks on multiple occasions, and he once crashed a "party" they were having just so he could kick them out and throw his own.
* {{Jerkass}}: Incredibly so. He's a ruthless bully played straight.
* KarmaHoudini: At least until the cops come, that is. And in ''Snitchers'', he gets off scot-free after brutally beating someone despite the duo constantly saying he did it (though they weren't even trying to use it against him anyway).
* SinisterShades: Is almost always seen with his sunglasses.
* SleevesAreForWimps: ...and in his blue sleeveless shirt.
* StopWorshippingMe: Towards Beavis and Butt-Head.

[[folder: Billy Bob]]

A morbidly obese hillbilly who occasionally gets caught up in the boys' misadventures.
Tropes associated with Billy Bob:

* BerserkButton: Making off with his scooter is ''not'' a good idea...
* BigEater: Hinted massively in "Bedpans And Broomsticks", where he is first shown in a doctor's office for artery problems & suffers from MeatOVision.
* CigarChomper: He even has one when he's on the treadmill.
* FatSlob: As a result of his poor diet and lack of exercise.
* HandicappedBadass: He's able to run at a pace to keep up with Beavis and Butt-Head, despite having suffered from six coronary bypasses, and needing a scooter just to get around.
* LightningBruiser: Sure, he's fatter then [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Peter Griffin]], but [[{{Acrofatic}} he can move fast enough to keep pace with a]] ''[[{{Acrofatic}} scooter]]'' & [[ThereWasADoor smash through walls]] [[StoutStrength extremely easily]].
* NiceHat: His cowboy hat.
* StoutStrength: He can smash through walls with just his rage alone and he's rather obese.
* UnstoppableRage: Quite possibly the only reason a man with six coronary bypasses could continue chasing Beavis and Butt-Head on a scooter for a good period of time.

[[folder: Harry Sachz]]
An ill-tempered middle-aged men who has a history of crime and violence.
Tropes associated with Harry:

* AssShove: Invokes this on a hapless Mr. Stevenson--with a ''phone''--after a combination of too many crank calls from Beavis and Butt-Head and a case of mistaken identity.
* BackFromTheDead: Despite having been gut-shot in "Butt Flambe," and seen dying of his wounds in the hospital, he returns in Season 8.
* BaldOfEvil: While he has some hair growing down from the back, the top is empty.
* BerserkButton: Repeatedly getting crank calls from Beavis and Butt-Head and them breaking into his house.
* ButtMonkey: In "Prank Call", he gets repeated crank calls from Beavis and Butt-Head for over a month.
* HairTriggerTemper: He's quick to anger and willing to get violent.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Threatens to do this to Beavis and Butt-Head in "Prank Call", which he does end up doing in "Butt Flambé".
* StoutStrength: His considerable gut doesn't stop him from being able to kick a door clear off its hinges.
* UnfortunateNames: His first and last names when said in sequence, which is why Beavis and Butt-Head decide to prank-dial him in the first place.

[[folder: Burger World Manager]]
Manager of Burger World, who's also Beavis and Butt-Head's boss.
Tropes associated with the Burger World Manager:

* BenevolentBoss: He's this just by sheer virtue of still keeping Beavis and Butt-Head employed no matter how many times they screw up on the job, get him injured, or ruin the reputation of Burger World beyond salvage.
* ButtMonkey: He's often on the bad end of things, because the two rarely do their job right.
* EnragedByIdiocy: He has little patience for Beavis and Butt-Head not doing their jobs as he asks.
* LampshadeHanging: When confronting the duo about their slacking off, he asks if they screw around that much in school while mentioning that their principal wouldn't tolerate it one bit.
* NoNameGiven: Surprisingly, his first name is never addressed despite being a recurring character.
* UltimateJobSecurity: The fact that Beavis and Butt-Head have managed to keep their jobs despite everything proves that he is either just as incompetent as they are, or utterly desperate because no one else will work there.
* {{Workaholic}}: He talks about how he wanted to make it to the top and put a lot of hard work in it.
