Voiced by: Eliza Schneider (credited as "Blue Girl")

A mouthy, rude young girl that wears a pink parka. She initially appeared in background scenes in season 3's "Hooked on Monkey Fonics", but her most (and only) significant role involved her challenging the boys to a sled race.

  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Insults will fly at her opponent in a competition, even an informal one.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Does she kiss her mother with that mouth?
  • Back from the Dead: She is presumably Killed Offscreen at the end of "Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000", when a bear grabs her and carries her off, but inexplicably reappears in later episodes. So, she either escaped or it's a non-Kenny example of They Killed Kenny Again.
  • The Bully: A female variation. She constantly nags the boys about the race at any opportunity, and sees Cartman's imprisonment and Kenny's death as increasing her side's luck.
  • Co-Dragons: Bebe and two other minor fourth grade girls (Sally and Esther) act as this to her in the episode.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Of Kenny, what with the parka and the sexual-based insults. And the fact that she dies at the end of her episode (though, the official FAQ implies that she doesn't have Kenny's superpower).
  • Hate Sink: A foul-mouthed girl who does nothing but spout homophobic insults and other vulgarities at the boys.
  • Humiliation Conga: Not only does she lose the sledding race, but she also falls off a cliff and gets killed by a bear.
  • I Ate WHAT: She is one of the minor characters who get the opening number of "Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics", one scene of which features Mr. Hankey jumping into the mouths of the children one by one. They are all unfazed by this.
  • Jerkass: She is a bully who derives amusement from trash-talking the boys with slurs.
  • Karmic Death: She gets eaten by a bear at the end of the episode.
  • Lady Swears-a-Lot: Though not to the extent of Kenny, since her dialogue is fully intelligible, she still comes off as a little kid who only just discovered profanity and uses it all the time because her parents told her not to.
  • Living Prop: Became one after her debut episode.
  • Pink Means Feminine: She wears a pink parka.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: All she does is taunt the boys with homosexual slurs. (i.e. "pillow biters", "poo stabbers", "rump rangers", "fudge packers", "turd burglars", etc.)
  • Smug Snake: Is obnoxiously full of herself and her team's ability to win the race.
  • Sudden Name Change: Combined with a case of All There in the Script, as her name is never spoken onscreen; She was referred to as "Princess" in storyboards for season 3 and season 4, but Comedy Central's official script for "Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000" has her named as "Lizzy".
  • The Rival: To the boys in the sled race.
  • Trash Talk: Keeps referring to the boys with homosexual-based slang such as "pillow biters", "poo stabbers", and "rump rangers", among others.
  • Visual Pun: See I Ate WHAT. She has a filthy mouth, indeed.

    Trent Boyett

Voiced by: Trey Parker
Debut: "Pre-School"

  • Asshole Victim: He is an infamous bully whose spends his first scene whacking another kid with a hammer even as he cries "Uncle!" No one except Butters had a problem throwing him under the bus for the fire that burned the teacher, and even he eventually caved.
  • The Bully: He was the meanest kindergardener which is how it was easy to give him all the blame.
  • Butt-Monkey: A bully, for sure, but he got arrested twice. Both times for something he isn't completely responsible for.
  • The Brute: One of the toughest kids in the series.
  • The Dreaded: To the boys and Butters. Even Cartman fears him!
  • Enfant Terrible: Even in kindergarten, where he was seen hitting another kid's hand with a hammer, despite the kid crying uncle.
  • Freudian Excuse: The reason he wants revenge on the main characters is that he was put in juvenile hall due to doing something they asked him to do, and when it had terrible consequences, he got all the blame. They convinced him to light a fire in the classroom (so they could play "fireman" and put the fire out by urinating on it), but it quickly burned out of control and their teacher was horrifically burned; Trent was sent to juvy and the main four weren't punished at all. Butters also saw what actually happened, but he wouldn't speak in Trent's defense out of fear, so Trent wants revenge on him as well.
  • Implacable Man: Not even the sixth graders can stop him.
  • It's Personal: The boys took five years of his life. It wasn't pretty what he did to Butters.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: Hardly bigger than the boys, yet took on a gang of sixth-graders, sending them into the hospital and wrecked their bikes.
  • Knight of Cerebus: In case you have doubts, he's not played for laughs, nor has a sense of humor.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He gets sent back to juvie just as he's about to attack the boys.
  • Revenge: His motivation for killing the boys.
  • The Sociopath: He had no problem setting up a wild fire because the main characters asked him to.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: He's a brutal, sadistic jerk, but he still ended up losing years of his life for a crime he didn't actually commit, and is determined to even the score.

    Nathan and Mimsy 

"Shut up, Mimsy!"

Voiced by: Trey Parker

A psychopathic kid and a rival of Jimmy's who often schemes to kill him or harm him in some way or another; in other words, he's the Cartman to Jimmy's Kyle.

  • Arch-Enemy: Considers himself Jimmy's by his second appearance, although it took Jim a few episodes to realize it and return the sentiment.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Pretends to be friendly around Counselor Steve, when he's really a scheming mastermind.
    • He also plays up his disability around PC Principal in order to gain his favor.
  • Butt-Monkey: Endures a lot of slapstick, as his evil schemes always backfire.
  • Catchphrase: "Shut up, Mimsy!"
  • Characterization Marches On: His villainy in Up The Down Steroid seemed akin to a merely a Con Man. In Crippled Summer he became a full-blown villain, then Handicar gave him shades of Anti-Villain, while the three-part Season 19 finale shifted him from Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain to a legitimate threat.
  • Diabolical Mastermind: In Crippled Summer and onward.
  • Dope Slap: Hands these out to Mimsy on a regular basis. Comes back to bite him when he tries this on Classi and she gives him a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown.
  • The Dragon: To Leslie Meyers in the three-part finale of Season 19.
  • Enfant Terrible: He's around the same age as Jimmy.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: At the end of Crippled Summer, he's been thoroughly humiliated and about to be put in an ambulance, when Jimmy, blissfully unaware that Nathan's been trying to kill him the entire episode, gives Nathan the "King of Summer" crown that he wants as a sign of goodwill. Nathan, likely doped to the gills on painkillers, only mutters about how much he hates Jimmy.
  • Expy: When paired with Mimsy, Nathan becomes one of Rocky, the gangster from several Bugs Bunny cartoons, while Mimsy acts as Mugsy, Rocky's partner.
  • Freudian Excuse: It's implied his parents are negligent Jerkasses who exaggerate his handicap when convenient. When he begged his mother to take him out of Summer Camp, she pretended to misinterpret it as a request to turn his nightlight off.
    Nathan's Mother: I'll be damned if he's ruining our trip to Italy.
    Nathan's Father: Right?
  • It's All About Me: He did everything he could to sabotage Timmy's fundraising efforts for keeping the summer camp open in "Handicar," which would have ruined the summer of many handicapped kids, simply because he didn't like it there; granted the last time he was there he was shot at, bit by highly venomous snakes, and raped by a shark. All of these things were his own fault, but it's still gives some extra justification to stay the hell away.
  • Lack of Empathy: Also a target of it from his parents.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: His villainous schemes regularly backfire.
  • Made of Iron: No amount of slapstick cripples him entirely.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Tries to with varying success.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: He's surprisingly effective as Leslie's Dragon in the Season 19 finale three-parter. Unfortunately for him, it only takes one regression to his more comedic stylings to secure his defeat.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: He has Down's Syndrome, though he has no evident mental impairment other than slurred words, and he uses this to his advantage by acting stupid around PC Principal, and possibly other adults, in order to get them on his side and get revenge on Jimmy.
    Nathan: Oh, Jimmy. So righteous, aren't you? So blind to everything that's going on.
    Jimmy: What are you talking about?
    Nathan: You really think all the changes happening to this town are just coincidence? This goes so much deeper than you could possibly imagine, Jim. Everyone's about to learn the truth. And then...there's a war coming. A war, Jim. And I'm just gonna make sure I'm on the right side of it.
    Mr. Mackey: Go on, boys, let's get back to class!
    Nathan: I like to smell trees!
  • The Quisling: For the Ads during the Season 19 three-parter.
  • Smug Snake: He's less effective than he thinks he is. Even in the Season 19 three-parter when he's otherwise competent at his villainy, he makes one stupid mistake that results in his defeat.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Moss Piglets ends with the implication that his volcano project impressed the NFL.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Has no problem slapping his prostitute girlfriend Classi after she suggests that the ads are using him. She promptly kicks his ass.


Voiced by: Trey Parker

  • Ambiguous Disorder: As noted below, his mental impairment is more evident, however, we don't know what his condition is, as besides being dim, he's also Literal-Minded.
  • Bumbling Sidekick: He is single-handedly responsible for making Nathan's plans backfire.
  • The Dragon: To Nathan, however, he's not very good, as he often messes up Nathan's orders.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: He raises quite a few good points throughout Handicar regarding Nathan's villainous schemes — most of them earn him a "Shut up, Mimsy!"
  • Expy: Of Mugsy, the dumb gangster from several Bugs Bunny cartoons. Mugsy was always paired with Rocky, a much smarter and small gangster, who Nathan acts as.
  • Fat Idiot: He's noticeably one of the heavier ones of the show and he's also not the brightest.
  • Hidden Depths: Handicar shows that he's fairly intelligent in regards to business.
  • Literal-Minded: Most of his screw ups are due to him following the Exact Words of Nathan's orders.
    Mimsy: You told me to "switch the map, switch the map", so I switched it, and I switched it.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: He'll often misinterpret Nathan's commands and seems to show no real malice towards the others.
  • Number Two for Brains: His mental impairment is more obvious than Nathan's.
  • Phrase Catcher: "Shut Up, Mimsy!"
  • Too Dumb to Live: Though it's Nathan who suffers the consequences, making him Lethally Stupid.


Jenkins, also known as "the griefer", was the main antagonist in the episode "Make Love, Not Warcraft", and was one of the Internet Trolls in Season 20. He presumably had no life until he was defeated.

  • Back from the Dead: In a sense. While his Warcraft avatar was defeated, Jenkins presumably just went to other sites and trolled their users.
  • Basement-Dweller: He provides the page image. Technically speaking, he does nothing but sit on his basement using the computer.
  • Big Bad: Of "Make Love, Not Warcraft".
  • The Bully: Since he'd probably get beaten mercilessly in real life.
  • Evil Genius: A no life asshole who was smart enough to exploit the game to the point even mods can't ban him.
  • Fat Bastard: He's a Fat Slob who loves to ruin others' gaming experience.
  • Fat Slob: A rather realistic one at that.
  • For the Evulz: He kills other players in Warcraft for pure enjoyment.
  • Geek: At the very least, spends all his time playing World of Warcraft, enough to become (almost) undefeatable.
  • Griefer: He almost single-handedly ruined World of Warcraft for everyone for absolutely no reason. He doesn't even look like he is having fun.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: When his character is killed.
  • Perma-Stubble: Of the unkempt slob variety.
  • The Stoic: Aside from looking mildly surprised and disgruntled from getting killed in-game, he never emotes or even speaks, even as he kills other players.
  • This Loser Is You: If you're a griefer, chances are that you look exactly like him.
  • Troll: In "Weiners Out" he's seen among the other internet trolls.
  • The Voiceless: Has no dialogue. Even in a scene where most of the other trolls are shown speaking, he does not.

    Grandma Stotch

Voiced by: Unknown
Debut: "Butterballs"

Butters' grandmother and the main antagonist in the episode "Butterballs".

  • Abusive Parents:Fractured But Whole implies she was Stephen's, which explains why he's the way he is towards Butters. Though, given her treatment towards Butters, we can guess she was probably worse.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She acts like a pleasant old lady in front of Butters' parents, but won't hesitate to stab her grandson under the table with a fork during dinner.
  • The Bully: She acts like a high-school bully even getting his lunch money.
  • Domestic Abuse: Toward Butters, with her stabbing Butters under the table with a fork and hitting him when his parents aren't looking.
  • Evil Old Folks: She puts on an act of being a sweet old lady, but in actuality she's a sadistic bully.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Butters is abused by most of his family. However, his parents Stephen and Linda are more incompetently strict than sadistic and at least nominally love him. Keep in mind, Grandma Stotch also mothered one of them...
  • Fat Bitch: She's notably overweight, and she's just an unpleasant bitch in general, especially to her grandson.
  • For the Evulz: There is no reason why she torments her grandson, just for fun.
  • Freudian Excuse: Fractured But Whole implies that she's this for Stephen, hence why he constantly grounds Butters.
  • Hate Sink: If you think Butters' parents are hateful, meet Grandma Stotch. She has no characterization outside of being a bully of a grandmother who torments Butters (both physically and mentally) for kicks. And unlike Butters' parents (who occasionally seem to care about Butters), she is an outright sadist with no redeeming qualities. Furthermore, the effects of her bullying are played very seriously for Butters, resembling a lot with Real Life bullying, and therefore, making her even more despicable.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Implied. Her miserable expressions throughout Butters' "The Reason You Suck" Speech suggest she is knowingly a very miserable empty person because of her bullying.
  • Jerkass She's hateful, bitchy, and abusive.
  • Karma Houdini: Deconstructed. While she doesn't face any punishment in the episode, Butters is able to give her a "The Reason You Suck" Speech, that tells her that she will grow old and die one day, and he'll be there to watch. In the end, Butters will have the last laugh.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Zigzagged, while the premise of an elderly grandmother acting like a school bully (right down to slang) is slapstick, the effects of her bullying are played very seriously for Butters.
  • Lack of Empathy: She wouldn't be a bully otherwise.
  • Psychopathic Womanchild: An old lady who acts like a schoolyard bully.
  • Sadist: Like all bullies, she not only doesn't care that she's tormenting Butters, but actively revels in it.
  • Would Hurt a Child: She's all for physically tormenting Butters.


Voiced by: Trey Parker
Debut: "Safe Space"
Final appearance: "Safe Space"

The biggest threat to safe spaces there is. He's a man in a black top hat, bandit mask and cape, who tries to demolish safe spaces and remind people of how cruel the world can be.

  • Ambiguously Human: He represents the very concept of reality itself, and appears and disappears from Butters' room spontaneously. However, he isn't some figment of Butters' imagination, as others can see him as well. Human or not, he can still apparently be killed, as the town ends up hanging him.
  • Anti-Villain: He's a complete jerkass, but he's definitely got a point about safe spaces, and although he's portrayed as a villain, the audience is definitely meant to be on his side of the argument.
  • Dastardly Whiplash: He certainly got the look down. The top hat, the mask, the cape, the mustache, everything. His lines in the safe space song also fit the trope.
    Reality: I am going to tear down your safe space! Brick by brick, I shall smash it with glee!
  • Domino Mask: Sports one as part of his Dastardly Whiplash look.
  • Foil: To PC Principal. Both are straw characters whose M.O. involves harassing others; except while PC P sees himself as a protector of the underprivileged who never listens, Reality sees himself as the smartest guy in the room who refuses to be silenced. Both also contributed to Butters' Sanity Slippage, yet in their minds they were trying to help. Reality is killed off after one episode for calling everyone out while PC P is kept around for the long run so that certain people can feel good about themselves.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: After tormenting Butters to the point of suicide, Reality then alerts everybody to this incident. The whole town arrives to see Butters, presumably hears his side of things and this leads to Reality getting the death penalty. Either Reality Didn't Think This Through or he's actually even more noble than Mysterion.
  • Hypocrite: He tells the various safe spacers that forcing Butters to monitor their social media comments is literally about to kill him. True, but it was also Reality who appeared in Butters' room and drove him insane and threatened to kill him, contributing to Butters' near suicide.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: He's certainly a jerk, but he's the one to point out how counter-productive safe spaces are, and the one to point out that having Butters moderate their social media comments nearly killed him.
  • Karmic Death: After driving an already fragile child to suicide, Reality meets his end at the hands of said child.
  • Never My Fault: When he tells everyone about how Butters is at risk of dying because of their egos, he conveniently leaves out the bit where he gave Butters that final push into insanity.
  • Nice Hat: A villainous top hat.
  • No Respect Guy: Granted, he's a massive jerk and doesn't deserve respect, but even after he points out that Butters is dying and that their charity event is a complete waste of money and effort, the citizens of South Park still have him hanged.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: He delivers one in front of all the various safe spacers after interrupting their fancy banquet to raise money for a "Shame Free America."
    Reality: What a lovely charity event. I supposed you're all feeling pretty good about yourselves, hmmm? What have you done? You've raised $300 by spending half a million on Filet Mignon and crystal glasses. Look at you. Vin Dipshit, you say fat shaming is wrong, so in response you show off your abs. You're the one fat shaming, idiot! What's the matter with you people? You're ''sad'' that people are ''mean''? Well, I'm sorry, the world isn't one big liberal-arts college campus! We eat too much, we take our spoiled lives for granted, feel a little bad about it sometimes. No, you want to put all your shit up on the internet and have every single person say, "Hooray for you!" Fuck you. You're all pricks. And I've got news for you. While you've been sitting here trying to feel good, the little boy who sucked all your shit is about to die from it!
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He appears in the latter half of a single episode, and gets hanged in the end.

    Dildo Schwaggins & the Internet Trolls

Debut: "Wieners Out" (Dildo Schwaggins), "Douche and a Danish" (the rest of the trolls)note 

A group of internet hecklers who formed an alliance after skankhunt42's antics caused Denmark to declare war on them.

  • Ambiguous Disorder: MLKKK (the black troll) dresses awkwardly, hates being touched and the few times he speaks he's shown to have a whimpering monotone voice.
  • Anti-Villain: They may be jerks, but at the same time they're also up against a major industry that wants to take away their privacy rights. It is also implied that most of them are Tragic Villains who only started trolling after a lifetime of bullying and mistreatment over things like being fat, ugly or socially awkward which sets them apart from Gerald, who is trolling just because he is a Jerkass.
  • Black Dude Dies First: Lennart Bedrager decides to test his TrollTrace service in the town of Fort Collins, which is where the only black member of the group lives. With his internet history exposed, the troll is lit on fire by the father of a disabled child he made fun of.
  • Broken Pedestal: Dildo Schwaggins feels this way towards Gerald, after realizing that the latter is "just a dick," rather than the anti-establishment rebel he believed him to be.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Their trolling of Denmark, which has already declared war on them.
  • The Bus Came Back: Jenkins the Griefer is a member.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: After MLKKK is outed he's burned alive by a white man with a hillbilly accent.
  • Even Evil Has Standards:
    • The troll in the Anonymous mask considers skankhunt42's method of trolling to be just a step too far. Truth in Television, as Anonymous users all function under a set of principles.
    • Dildo was horrified when Gerald revealed that he wasn't doing things to be a rebel, but just For the Evulz.
      • Not just Dildo but the other trolls seem shocked and appalled that Gerald would frame his own toddler son for his trolling.
  • Fat Bastard: Most of the trolls are overweight.
  • Female Misogynist: Only one of them is a woman and given the nature of the trolls, is most likely someone who gives other women crap.
  • Freudian Excuse: Dildo trolls online as a way to get back at the world that rejected him for being hideous.
    Gerald: Don't you remember being a kid and calling someone a fag for no reason?
    Dildo: I remember being called a fag for no reason.
  • Gonk: Every single one of them is some kind of ugly.
  • Kill It with Fire: Happens to MLKKK when the father of one of his trolling victims gets ahold of him.
  • Man on Fire: MLKKK. Once his Internet history gets out, the father of a disabled child he made fun of online sets him on fire.
  • Never My Fault: The trolls claim oppression over Denmark's declaration of war on them, ignoring the fact that Denmark just lost a beloved public figure due to undeserved trolling.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: MLKKK tries to do this when the Danish make the citizens of Fort Collins's Internet histories are accessible to the public. He doesn't get too far.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: They replace Cartman in a sense, being boorish slobs who treat others like dirt for their own amusement.
  • Then Let Me Be Evil: Implied to be their motivations for becoming trolls, but definitely for Dildo. They're all ugly and awkward, so society treated them like punching bags.
  • Token Minority: MLKKK is the sole black troll of the group.
  • Troll: All of them. The group bond by heckling other people online; most of them do it to rebel against society.
  • Unfortunate Names: Dildo Schwaggins' real name is Dick Slapperman.
  • Villain Protagonist: Allied with Gerald in his fight against Denmark but are portrayed much more sympathetically.
