Recurring Students

    Jimmy Valmer
"Wow, what a terrific audience."

Voiced by: Trey Parker
Debut: "Cripple Fight"

A crippled boy with a Speech Impediment and a stutter. He's also a fantastic (or so he thinks) stand-up comedian.

His role in Coon and Friends is Fastpass.

  • Jerkass Ball: In the episode "Up the Down Steroid," he acts like a complete jerk. He even goes as far as to attack his girlfriend!
  • Nice Guy: Usually. Notable exceptions are "Up the Down Steroid", "Funnybot", and "Freemium Isn't Free".

    Clyde Donovan
"You, sir, mocked Cartman before, yet you two sit here demanding answers! Now, damn you, let him speak!"

Voiced by: Trey Parker

One of the 4th graders who attends South Park Elementary. Clyde was once described as the second fattest kid next to Cartman. Some of the girls in his class once put him at #1 on their "Cutest Boys" list just to get free shoes since his father owns a shoe store and they want to justify dating him by making him look popular.

His role in Coon and Friends is Mosquito.

  • Adorkable: He's a sweet, girl-crazy jock with crybaby tendencies that show a sensitive heart.
  • Ambiguously Bi: While Clyde has most certainly shown attraction to the girls, his actions towards Marjorine (Butters in disguise) and the fact that he was the only recognizable boy character in Craig and Tweek's grade who went to see yaoi fanart of them could imply that Clyde Donovan swings both ways.
  • Apathetic Citizen: When Gordon Stolski gets murdered during the morning announcements in "Dances with Smurfs", Clyde doesn't even pause in doing his schoolwork.
  • Ascended Extra: In the earlier seasons, he was mostly a background student who only spoke to exhibit his Book Dumb personality. Nowadays, he's easily one of the most recognizable students in the Fourth Grade class and is even a member of Craig's Gang.
  • Book Dumb: Rather ignorant about math, history, and other subjects.
  • Butt-Monkey: Ties a bit into the above. He's also subject to Stan and Kyle's teasing when Butters claims him to be the second-fattest kid in the class in "Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000."
  • Casanova Wannabe: As part of his Dirty Kid characterization, he tends to try and flirt with girls even when they're clearly not interested. Common targets include the Raisins Girls (who do show an interest, but only so they can take his money) and Wendy in the Video Games.
  • Characterization Marches On: Started off as simply the first/only kid to talk once all the primary students had been used. He was eventually retooled as a wimpy crybaby who likes sports.
  • Cry Cute: It's more "funny" than "cute", but Clyde has a distinctively Lucy Ricardo-esque bawl when he cries (which is relatively often). When Wendy comments on the cuteness of boys crying during one of Clyde's outbursts, she is mostly amused by it.
    Wendy (AKA Call Girl): "Boys are kinda cute when they cry, huh? #sorrynotsorry"
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Lice Capades" and "Reverse Cowgirl".
  • Dirty Kid: Next to Kenny, Clyde is just as perverted as Kenny himself.
    • In "Make Love, Not Warecraft", he decides to read a Playboy magazine rather than participating in playing World of Warcraft with his friends.
    • In "Marjorine", when the eponymous new girl note  introduces herself to the whole class, she mentions that she likes getting her snooch pounded on Friday nights, to which Clyde enthusiastically responds "Nice."
    • He holds a speech about lesbian cheerleaders in "Ginger Kids".
    • In "Sexual Harassment Panda" Clyde uses his settlement to go on a cruise with bikini-clad women.
  • The Ditz: Not exactly the smartest guy, as proven by his Book Dumb character.
    • In The Movie, when Mr. Garrison asks the class what 5 x 4 is, Clyde incorrectly answers "12", to which Garrison responds "Okay, now let's try to get an answer from someone who's not a complete retard." Of course, Mr. Garrison isn't shown to actually teach the class anything most of the time, so it might not be Clyde's fault.
    • In "Weight Gain 4000" he doesn't know that he's supposed to be dressed as an Indian (Native American) for the South Park play despite having a feather on his head and has to ask Mr. Garrison for confirmation.
  • Fan of the Underdog: Surprisingly, he's one of the few people who support Cartman in some of his plans.
  • The Generic Guy: Though he has been played out as the wimpiest kid who isn't blonde and the most submissive kid to Cartman (just like Cartman's submissive mother Liane), it's hard to describe Clyde as anything other than "the kid who isn't insane/jewish/a bully/poor/innocent/crippled/rich/black/deadpan/twitchy/political/female/a prop/a Star Wars fan/Mintberry Crunch/dirty/dead."
  • Informed Deformity: His status as the second fattest kid in the class is not in any way visible due to being drawn the same size as the other kids who aren't Cartman.
  • Kids Are Cruel: Zig-Zagged at times. He's shown to be one of the nicest kids in the fourth grade class (ex: "Lice Capades"), and the few times he is cruel is either by accident or when he really does not know he's being such (e.g. "The List"). His crack baby stint with Cartman and making fun of Lisa Berger's weight are different scales of cruel but should be mentioned. It only makes him more well-rounded and interesting. Other examples:
    • He and Red were the only kids shown to be unfazed by the murder of a student during the morning announcements, it's possible he simply didn't understand what was happening.
    • He is also the boy who comes up with the idea of destroying all of Cartman's electronic devices in "Skank Hunt". Subverted in that he and the others believed that Cartman was the troll targeting the girls at their school (which was starting a rift between the two genders, eventually leading to a gender war) and the fact that he becomes visibly uncomfortable when Cartman begins begging for his friends not to destroy his devices.
  • Lovable Jock: He’s a sweet and funny kid who loves sports and is very good at them, such as basketball, hockey, soccer, and baseball, though he hates baseball just as much as the other boys do.
  • Nice Guy: One of the nicer classmates. Even when he held the Jerkass Ball in "The List" he was still more sensitive to Kyle than Butters was during Kyle's Heroic BSoD.
  • Retcon: Was revealed to have apparently had a colostomy at age 5 in "The Mystery of the Urinal Deuce", though this is never referenced again (save for the game Let's Go Tower Defense Play!) and Clyde appears to use the toilet just as fine as the other kids.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Halfway there; poor guy just kept forgetting to put the toilet seat down, so his mom ended up dying from sitting on the toilet without the seat.
  • Shipper on Deck: If being the only boy seen walking to the Asian girls' art exhibit of Tweek and Craig yaoi with a smile on his face is an indication.
  • Sudden Name Change: Clyde Goodman (never spoken in show) -> Clyde Donovan, and briefly "Clyde Harris" in "Lice Capades" (before reruns changed it back to "Donovan").

    Token Black
"There's no one in town I can relate to
I play with autographed baseball bats
while everyone else just plays with sticks and pine cones
Has a boy ever felt so alone?"

Voiced by: Adrien Beard

One of the very few black kids in South Park. Token is also incredibly rich. He lives in a mansion with his parents, who have well-paid jobs.

His role in Coon and Friends is Tupperware.

  • Ascended Extra: Was originally a background student used to fill in classroom scenes and hardly ever spoke. Starting with Season 4 onwards, he usually gets the chance to play more major roles in episodes, typically those dealing with race, and it doesn't hurt that he's a recurring member of Craig's Gang.
  • Aerith and Bob: While most of the other kids have standard names, his sticks out as unusual (see Meaningful Name).
  • Berserk Button: Cartman is always racist, but when he keeps it up, Token snaps.
  • Closer to Earth: Arguably the most normal of the class (aside from his slight naivete and resented "black guy talents").
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Took down Cartman in three strikes.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Here Comes the Neighborhood".
  • Early Installment Weirdness: A white version of him would occasionally appear in background shots in earlier seasons.
  • The Generic Guy: Even moreso than Stan and Clyde. Possibly intentional; he has two traits, rich and black, which make him stand out from the rest of the town, but neither of these traits affect his personality.
  • Meaningful Name: He's the token black kid at school.
  • Nice Guy: Is a rather nice kid all around, but don't act racist around him.
  • Only in It for the Money: The only reason he agreed to play bass for Faith +1.
  • Only Sane Man: He's much more down-to-earth than the rest of the cast.
  • The Smart Guy: One of the smartest kids in class.
  • Stop Being Stereotypical: Turns out Cartman was right, he can play bass. He isn't happy. He is also physically unable to keep himself from laughing at Tyler Perry's comedy, much to his own dismay.
  • Sudden Name Change: It's Token Black, not Token Williams. "Williams" was given in "Here Comes The Neighborhood", while the "Black" name was first used starting with "Quest for Ratings", because, you know, it's funny.
  • Token Minority: It's even in his name (see Meaningful Name above).
  • Token Minority Couple: Has one with the new black girl at school, Nichole Daniels, starting with "Cartman Finds Love". Up until "Skank Hunt", where she breaks up with him, due to the girls belief that one of the boys at school is Skankhunt 42, much to his devastation.

    Craig Tucker
"If I could say shitballs to the principal, I'd be sooo happy."
Voiced by: Matt Stone

One of the 4th graders who attends South Park Elementary. It's implied that he has bad behavior, and is referred to as "The biggest troublemaker" in his class by Eric Cartman in "Tweek vs. Craig". He also has a habit of flipping people off, whether to express disdain toward them or not. Acts as the leader of a rival group to The Boys called Craig's Gang at times, usually consisting of himself, Token, Clyde, and Jimmy (or Tweek).

His role in Coon and Friends is Super Craig.

  • Armored Closet Gay: The events of "Tweek x Craig", particularly with Craig's shameful expression when he rejects Tweek's feelings after the latter feels awful about taking their false break-up too far, heavily imply that Craig has been repressing his sexuality for a long, long time. He was also shown to be dating a girl in "Stick of Truth", but broke up with her shortly afterward.
  • Ascended Extra: Was originally a background character who usually appeared sitting in front of Mr. Mackey's office, with no explanation really being given. He was named and given a reason for that running gag by Season 3.
  • Bad Boss: In the episode "South Park is Gay!", when the main characters are first shown viewing Craig's Gang as rivals.
  • The Bully: His original characterization. He originally stood out as being distinctly assertive and a complete bully, leading his classmates into the beating of defenseless kids. In recent episodes, he is much more passive aggressive and stoic, not as attentive to bullying others as before (though still gets the odd laugh out of it).
  • Butt-Monkey: To a lesser extent.
    • In "Tweek vs. Craig", Cartman, Kyle, Stan, and Kenny fool him and Tweek into fighting.
    • In "The Magic Bush", he and his family are humiliated when footage of his mom's vagina (and her excessive pubic hair) are posted on the Internet anonymously by Cartman.
  • Catchphrase:
    • In "Le Petit Tourette", he repeatedly says "If I could [call someone something vulgar] I would be sooo happy." The "sooo happy" part is also used a few times in "Pandemic".
  • Character Development: After his Deadpan Snarker characterization was fully established, he undergoes a lot of development in "Tweek x Craig", where he's shown to be more emphatic than in his previous appearances, eventually coming to terms with his true sexuality and becoming Tweek's boyfriend in the process. Taken further in "Put it Down", where Craig is shown to be sweet, attentive, and supportive towards his boyfriend Tweek, who eventually manages to calm down after Craig learns to let him grieve and express his anxiety rather than problem-solve.
  • Character Tic: Earlier in the show, he had a habit of flipping people off.
  • Characterization Marches On: Originally, he was pretty much a one-joke character with the Flipping the Bird thing. Around Season 7, he was reimagined as The Rival to the main boys with schemes of his own. However, his "Pandemic" day in the limelight re-reimagined him as a Deadpan Snarker who would decidedly avoid trouble if he could help it (making him more of a Foil to the others). That characterization proved very popular and has persisted since.
  • The Chosen One: In "Pandemic 2", Craig is insistent that you don't have to do what you're expected to do, but discovers that when you're really the Chosen One, that's that. Sorry Craig, but you're going to have sparks shooting out of your eyes whether you like it or not.
  • The Comically Serious: Craig doesn't show much emotion and it's often played for laughs.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Pandemic", "Pandemic 2: The Startling", "Tweek x Craig", and "Put It Down".
  • Deadpan Snarker: Craig's most distinguishing characteristic is that he always speaks in a monotone, whether surprised, angry, or trying to make a joke. And that includes snarking. Despite being something of a background character, he has more of these moments than any other single character on the show.
    Craig: This is fun. Let's walk for miles through a spooky jungle. It just keeps getting better and better.
  • The Drag-Along: The Boys drag him along to their Peruvian pan flute scheme because he received $100 of birthday money. He is not happy about this.
  • Dysfunctional Family: No, really, have you seen his family's habit?
  • Flipping the Bird: He does this to just about everyone he sees. He tries to pass it off as a tic, but nobody buys it. Apparently, he gets it from his family. This is actually weaponized in South Park: The Fractured but Whole as one of Super Craig's abilities, which is named "Shining Hate Finger".
  • Good Is Not Nice: As snarky, rude, and cynical as Craig can be, he has a good heart deep down, which is shown more often in later seasons, particularly with Tweek.
  • Has a Type: Twitchy blondes, apparently. Before he started dating Tweek, he seemed to be somewhat affectionate to Thomas (see all the way down this page to One-Shot Students).
  • Hollywood Genetics: His father's a redhead while his mother and sister are blondes, yet the very few times we see him without his hat on, he has black hair. Some fans have used this, along with the fact that he apparently has ancestral ties to Peru, as evidence that he's adopted.
  • Informed Deformity: According to Cartman, Craig has "fucked-up teeth".
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: During the early seasons, he was probably the second most violent kid in his class after Cartman, as he was shown to lead any generic bullying that goes on in school. He was always shown going to the counselor due to his cynicism and disrespect towards the other characters, especially when flipping them off. This was almost entirely phased out starting around season 12. In "Tweek x Craig", he undergoes massive Character Development when the false news of him and Tweek being gay with each other is spread around. He's still a deadpan kind of kid, but he's shown to be a whole lot more emphatic than his previous appearances have given him credit for. Later in "Put It Down" he goes even further, having become Tweek's boyfriend ever since "Tweek x Craig" and spending the entire episode by Tweek's side, trying to help him deal with his panic attacks about North Korea and President Garrison's tweets about them and Tweek.
  • Kids Are Cruel: During his rival/bully "phase". Aside from that, he's basically on par with the others.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Thanks to the power of yaoi, everyone believes that he and Tweek are dating, and it's just easier to go along with it. There's not much mistaking about it as of "Put it Down", where Craig continues to act very affectionately towards Tweek despite there no longer being any peer pressure to do so.
  • Nerdy Nasalness: Known for his nasally voice and ugly laugh. If his room is any indication he likes space and science in general. He also likes Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.
  • Never Bareheaded: His hair is almost never shown.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a blue chullo hat.
  • Not So Stoic: He briefly loses his temper, to the point of petty name-calling, during his fight with Tweek in "Put It Down". Lampshaded by Craig himself right afterwards.
    Craig: Oh, see? Now you made me lose control of my emotions. God damn it.
  • Official Couple: With Tweek since "Tweek x Craig". It's really established in "Put It Down", with the boys calling Tweek his boyfriend and him spending the episode trying to make Tweek feel better. Craig also holds Tweek's hand and calls him "babe" and "honey" throughout the episode, even when it's very unlikely anybody from South Park is around to see them. Word of God further confirmed this on Twitter.
  • Perpetual Frowner: If he isn't stoical, he's this.
  • Pet the Dog: He befriends Thomas, the kid with Tourette's Syndrome, near the end of "Le Petit Tourette" because he doesn't find swearing to be a problem, and he forgives Tweek for messing up their 'break-up' in "Tweek x Craig".
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Delivers his above quote to the Main Four to explain to them why nobody else at school consistently hangs out with them. Which is rather unwarranted, if you think about it.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The stoic, logical, monotone Blue Oni to Tweek's Red. Bonus points for actually wearing a blue outfit.
  • Retcon: Craig's hair color was inconsistent for a time. It was initially black in "South Park Is Gay!", but was depicted as gray in "The Losing Edge". Later episodes switched his hair back to black, and in a slightly different style than what he had in his second hatless appearance. The Stick of Truth game confuses things further by depicting him as a blond in a sequence.
  • Refusal of the Call: In "Pandemic". Or at least, he tries.
  • The Rival: While he leads any rivalry of the primary four boys, he seems to have a special disdain for Cartman.
  • The Stoic: While it was Depending on the Writer for a time, this has solidified into being Craig's "thing". He is notably very unflappable in the face of South Park's bouts of craziness, and takes a calm, disinterested disposition to pretty much everything.
  • Straight Gay: Is in a romantic relationship with Tweek, calling him "babe" and "honey" and refers to himself as a "Homosexual Cis Male" on his "Fractured But Whole" Character Sheet, but otherwise acts no different than the other boys.
  • Those Two Guys: With Tweek ever since their hookup.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: In recent seasons his violent and trouble-making tendencies have been toned down and he's become more compassionate, particularly after becoming Tweek's boyfriend. In "Put It Down" he spends much of the episode attempting to help Tweek with his panic attacks, and in "Splatty Tomato" he's the first to offer to help Kyle find his missing brother.
  • You Can't Fight Fate:
    • In "Pandemic 2: The Startling", he tries to prove that you can just walk away, but it's trying to do that leads to him defeating the Guinea Pirate. It's almost a Broken Aesop in its implementation.
    • In "Tweek x Craig", he and Tweek agree to pretend to date out of peer pressure, despite trying to prove throughout the whole episode that they aren't gay. Of course, as of "Put It Down", all signs point towards them dating for real.

    Tweek Tweak
"GAH! That is way too much pressure!"

Voiced by: Matt Stone
Debut: "Gnomes"

A constantly nervous and paranoid boy with wild blond hair. He constantly twitches because of all the coffee he drinks - and because of the "healthy" sprinkling of locally brewed meth that his parents keep putting in it.

His role in Coon and Friends is Wonder Tweek.

  • Abusive Parents: Not only do his parents practically test the quality of their meth supplies by giving it to their son in his coffee, but his father frequently jokes about selling Tweek into slavery right in front of him when it's painfully obvious his son has severe anxiety and paranoia issues. In "Tweek x Craig", his dad admits that he's always just assumed that Tweek was a little spaz, but respects him now that he knows he's gay, which is pretty poor on Richard's part regardless of whether Tweek really is gay or not.
  • Aerith and Bob: Everyone has normal names, and this guy is named "Tweek".
  • Alliterative Name: Tweek Tweak.
  • Armored Closet Gay: In "Tweek x Craig", it's shown that Tweek has also been a slight case of this trope, but after Craig motivates him to act out a false break-up with him (which had Gone Horribly Wrong), he seems to have gained more confidence, making it easier for him to come out of the closet than when Craig did.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Due to his hyperactivity.
  • Butt-Monkey: For the four main characters, during his time as the "fourth friend".
  • Cassandra Truth: Underpants gnomes!
  • Catchphrase: "GAH! That's too much pressure!", "GAH! Get away from me!", and "Oh Jesus!!!"
  • Character Tic: Trembling or pulling at his hair or shirt. He's actually ripped his hair out before.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: His appearance, personality, and outlandish claims such as the underpants gnomes give off this vibe to other characters, but he's really just Properly Paranoid, so it's mostly averted.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Gnomes". Becomes one of the 4 main characters during the second-third of Season 6, and later on has "Tweek x Craig" and "Put It Down".
  • Dreadful Musician: Played with in the episode "Put It Down". In the beginning of the episode, he plays the piano horribly. However, this seems to be fueled by his panic over North Koreanote . When performing the episode's eponymous song with Craig, he plays perfectly well.
  • Freak Out!: Every time he appears and it's played for laughs.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • "Tweek x Craig" reveals that he's a surprisingly good improvisational actor when he finally gives it a shot.
    • "Put It Down" reveals that he can bake and that he's a gifted pianist. When he's not overwhelmed by panic.
  • Hilariously Abusive Childhood: Tweek's parents encourage him to drink copious amounts of coffee, ignoring the resulting insomnia and nervousness. They even send him to collect coffee deliveries from the local meth lab.
  • I Can't Believe It's Not Heroin!: Tweek's terrible addiction to coffee. Completely inverted when it turns out that it is meth being slipped in his coffee - by his parents.
  • Keet: Even though his hyperactivity comes from the fact that he's paranoid and scared, not happy. He can still have serious badass moments when he gets angry.
  • Meaningful Name: Tweak Bros Coffee is made with locally brewed meth. "Tweaking" is the stage in a meth experience that Tweek seems to live in perpetually.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Everyone thinks he and Craig are together thanks to girls at school drawing yaoi shipping the two. Though by the time "Put It Down" comes around, everything points towards it being genuine.
  • Morality Pet: To Craig. Craig acts unusually gentle towards him in "Tweek x Craig", and according to some whiteboard notes for South Park: The Fractured but Whole, he's one of the only two things Craig cares about. In "Put It Down", Craig even calls him pet names like "honey" and "babe".
  • Must Have Caffeine: His parents own a coffee shop, and Tweek is always begging for coffee, and they always give it to him to calm him down, which is... not exactly what's going on.
  • Nervous Wreck: To the point where his earliest classroom scenes would have him animated as constantly twitching and shaking. The animators stopped with it after his demotion to being a background character.
  • Official Couple: With Craig since "Tweek x Craig". Seems to rely on Craig for support, and Craig calls him petnames like "babe" and "honey". The episode "Put It Down" basically has their relationship at the forefront, with Craig trying everything he can to help Tweek feel better, which works in the end. He is also seen holding hands with Craig throughout the episode, including the last scene, in which they hold hands and look each other in the eyes with a smile. Further confirmed by Word of God on Twitter.
  • Properly Paranoid: Because he lives in South Park.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The panicky, emotional, shrill Red Oni to Craig's Blue.
  • Refusal of the Call: Such a Nervous Wreck that he can't even put the nose on a snowman because it's too much pressure as the fourth friend and the other boys constantly had to drag him everywhere.
  • Repetitive Name: "Tweek Tweak". His last name is pretty much the same as his first besides being spelled differently.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": The official FAQ says his surname is spelled "Tweak", though the show more often uses "Tweek" for the surname too.
  • Spiky Hair: Though his hair is like that to accentuate his lunacy.
  • Straight Gay: Is dating Craig, and is pretty much the only boy who has never been confirmed to have dated a girl. He also refers to himself as a "Homosexual Cis Male" on his "Fractured But Whole" Character Sheet and commented "I like sausage!" when Clyde complained that the South Park: Phone Destroyer group chat was a "sausage fest". He only stands out for reasons of his neurotic behaviors, however.
  • Teeny Weenie: According to "T.M.I.", he has the second smallest penis in the fourth grade, next to Eric Cartman. But for some reason, he isn't seen with Cartman in the anger management class.
  • Those Two Guys: With Craig ever since their hookup.
  • Twitchy Eye: Seen with this often.
  • Verbal Tic: Along with every kind of other tic.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Vanished from the main boys' group offscreen before Kenny's return, and his role among the boys steadily decreased until he was eventually removed from classroom scenes. In the "Black Friday/Console Wars" trilogy, he has a minor role as part of the PS4 group. Not to mention he has a few speaking lines in Season 17 (including in the aforementioned trilogy). He finally really returns to the show in Season 19, where he and Craig share the main focus of an episode.

    Timmy Burch
Voiced by: Trey Parker

A handicapped boy in a wheelchair who can only say his name. He is friends with Jimmy Valmer.

His role in Coon and Friends was Iron Maiden, but is now Doctor Timothy of the Freedom Pals in South Park: The Fractured but Whole.

  • Advertised Extra: Despite singing Kenny's part in Season 6's theme song, he's only prominent in two episodes over the course of the season.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Jimmy occasionally calls him "Tim" or "Tim-Tim".
  • Breakout Character: Was intended to be a one-shot and gag character, but the crew liked him and he was popular with audiences, leaving him to be utilized more through Season 4. However, this was subverted after a while (see Demoted to Extra).
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Handicar" is primarily about Timmy. The main cast don't even appear.
  • Demoted to Extra: After being built up to be a major secondary character, he was ultimately replaced by the easier-to-write-for Jimmy, though Timmy himself became more prominent in later episodes alongside Jimmy, even portraying them as best friends as opposed to their previous (one-sided) rivalry in "Cripple Fight".
  • Flanderization: His Pokémon Speak. In his earlier appearances, he is shown to say more than just his name when he tried. However, in "Up the Down Steroid" he was unable to tell Mr. Mackey that Jimmy was using steroids because all he could say was "Timmy" and "Jimmy".
  • Inspirationally Disadvantaged: Parodied: he's often used to parody various social issues relating to the disabled. Otherwise, he and Jimmy are far more inspirationally treated as just another couple of students by their classmates and everyone else.
  • Intelligible Unintelligible: Jimmy seems to be able to understand him about as clearly as if he were speaking with actual words despite his speech impediment.
  • It's All About Me: As Cartman pointed out, he can be very selfish at times.
    • In "Helen Keller: The Musical" he uses his position as the lead to force the other students to use the turkey he wants over the turkey everyone else wants.
    • In "Cripple Fight" he tries to kill Jimmy then lies about Jimmy being gay to get him kicked out of Boy Scouts because he was jealous he was no longer the only handicapped kid in Boy Scouts.
  • Pokémon Speak: "Timmy!" is (usually) the only word he can say somewhat intelligently. Bizarrely, both of his parents are also like this ("RICHARD!" "HELEN!"). Sometimes he's able to speak other names depending on the episode; for example, "Gobbles!" in "Hellen Keller! The Musical" when he adopts a turkey named Gobbles. He can also say his friend's name, "Jimmy!", since it's just "Timmy!" with the first letter replaced. "Fourth Grade" also has Timmy cry "Please help me!" when his modified wheelchair gets unstable and could explode if the chair went too slow or if he got off it.
    • This is subverted for the most part in South Park: The Fractured but Whole, where Timmy's superhero persona "Doctor Timothy" is an extremely powerful psychic who is able to speak telepathically in complete and fluent sentences. He can still only say his name when talking without using his powers, though.
  • Promotion to Opening Titles: Took over Kenny's singing role in the theme song during Season 6 (after Kenny died and temporarily stayed dead). Ironically this was the same time Timmy was Demoted to Extra.
  • Smarter Than You Look: For a kid who was referred to as mentally handicapped In-Universe, he's pretty clever. Not only did he start a taxi service that's worth $2.3 billion by the end of the episode, he was able to successfully frame Jimmy out of the scouts (though, to be fair, the adults of South Park are too stupid to notice how bad a photoshop job it was). Also, as shown in South Park: The Fractured but Whole, his telepathic dialogue appears to be outright eloquent. On the motor skills side, he has been seen swimming, operating a computer, and holding his own in a fight.
  • Young Entrepreneur: "Handicar" features Timmy starting up a taxi service of the same name where he pulls passengers around in a wagon hitched to his wheelchair. He's so successful that he sells his business for $2.3 billion at the end of the episode.

    Bebe Stevens
"Having boobs sucks."

Voiced by: Jennifer Howell

Wendy's best friend. She once hated her breasts when she started developing them early (and caused the male 4th graders to turn into perverted, mindless apes), and was once attracted to Kyle Broflovski because she thought he had a "sweet ass". Hot-headed like Wendy (though not very concerned with feminism and politics), she also tends to come into conflict with Cartman.

  • I Have Boobs, You Must Obey!: Defied in "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society", where she tries to get boys to stop treating her this way.
  • Informed Deformity: Wendy reveals that she has acne in "The Hobbit", but she is never shown to have any.
  • It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": Her name is phonetically pronounced "Bay-Bay".
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Usually, she's harsh towards some of her fellow classmates when not being Wendy's lancer. In fact, her harshness becomes a prominent issue in "The List" and "Lice Capades". (You can guess what Clyde's reaction to some of her commentary was). Despite this, her Jerkass behavior actually turns out to be a charade, especially when she doesn't like how her boobs manipulate every boy in her class to include her.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: While hinted in the show, this seems to be a common characterization in the show's fandom. That is, when she's not a full-on Alpha Bitch or plain evil.
  • Out of Focus: Has had a little less to say and do when it comes to plots involving the girls and class, due to her voice actress being busy with other commitments.
  • Stereotype Flip: Despite her mother being one, Bebe doesn't apply to the Dumb Blonde stereotype (thus averting the It Runs in the Family trope), as she correctly answered what 6 x 8 is in "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society".
  • Those Two Girls: Can be seen paired with Red in several episodes.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: She had developed boobs in "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society" (and they were quite visible), but afterwards she was never shown with them again nor was she shown wearing the cardboard box over her chest (in which she was required to wear in order to hide her breasts since the doctor refused to give her breast reduction surgery). No explanation was given for the absence of her breasts. This is especially curious since she later made fun of Marjorine (Butters in disguise) for being flat-chested.

    Phillip "Pip" Pirrup
"Cheeri-o! My name is Pip. I would like to see if you wouldn't mind not smashing our little town to bits."

Voiced by: Matt Stone
Final appearance: "201"

A British student who was picked on a lot, and everyone hated him.

  • Throw the Dog a Bone: He was in the top 6 of people to replace Kenny which isn't too bad considering it started out at 20 and he was chosen over Wendy.

    The Goth Kids
"If you wanna be one of the non-conformists, all you have to do is dress just like us and listen to the same music we do."

Voiced by: Trey Parker (Pete), Matt Stone (Michael), Jessica Makinson (Henrietta), Nico Agnone (Firkle, "Raisins", "You Got F'd in the A"), Sebastian Yu (Firkle, "Mysterion Rises")
Debut: "Raisins" (all of them)

Four kids who hang out behind the school smoking and talking about how life is full of pain. Oh, and they hate Twilight.

The red haired boy is Pete, the fat girl is Henrietta, the tall boy is Michael, and the kindergartner is Firkle.

  • Aerith and Bob: All of them but Firkle have typical, arguably "conformist" names.
  • Ambiguously Brown/Fake Mixed Race: Michael's parents seem to be a white man and an Asian woman, but he's designed like any other white kid. A previous episode implied his parents are divorced, so maybe this was his stepmother, but he explicitly called her "mom". He may simply take after his father.
  • Angst: Part of their character, but mostly Henrietta, and to a lesser extent, Michael.
  • Ax-Crazy: The smallest goth (Firkle), who worships Cthulhu and carries around a switchblade.
    Firkle: No one will stop Cthulhu now. All will be sadness. Life will become death, and I will watch the crimson blood leak from your neck!
    Michael: Dude, that little kid is hardcore goth!
    Pete: Hardcore goth!
  • Broken Pedestal: They used to worship Cthulhu, but soon realise that his presence didn't actually change the status quo.
    Mysterion: That god you pray to just took away all my friends.
    Pete: Not our god. He promised everything would change if we worshiped him, but we're still sitting here smoking cigarettes like before. It's like Obama all over again.
  • Character Tic: Pete often flips his hair in between sentences.
  • Connected All Along: Up until "Coon vs. Coon & Friends" there was no indication that Henrietta and Bradley were siblings.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Raisins", "The Ungroundable", and "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers" (which even gives them their own version of the opening theme).
  • Deadpan Snarker: Pete and Michael most notably, however Firkle and Henrietta have been known to get their remarks in as well.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Pete is against killing people in "Mysterion Rises".
  • Given Name Reveal: After about ten years of being nameless, the male Goth Kids are named in "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers". The taller one is Michael, the red-haired one is Pete, and the youngest one is Firkle. Henrietta's last name is also revealed to be "Biggle" in "Coon vs. Coon and Friends".
  • Goth: All four of them are stereotypical goths, though they do have some realistic behaviors.
  • Goth Girls Know Magic: Henrietta is shown to keep a sacred tome in her room, filled with all sorts of knowledge about supernatural entities and such. It's taken a step further in The Fractured But Whole, where Henrietta is able to be recruited into the New Kid's team during and after the DLC Sidequest "From Dusk Till Casa Bonita", where she is arguably the best healer in the game.
  • Hypocritical Humor:
    • Most of their humour comes from being rebellious and talking about breaking norms, while being cookie-cutter stereotypes.
    "In order to be a non-conformist, you have to dress and act exactly like us."
    • They spend all their time alone complaining about how full of pain life is, when their lives would actually be pretty good if they stopped moping and actually tried being happy. Butters realizes this when he joins them for an episode.
  • Informed Deformity: Apparently Pete has pockmarks.
  • Knife Nut: Firkle carries a switchblade.
  • No Name Given: Initially all of them except Henrietta. Fan nicknames for the other three usually went along the lines of "Red Goth", "Tall Goth", and "Kindergoth". The Stick of Truth game, meanwhile, referred to Pete as "Hair Flip" in gameplay footage (until it was corrected for the final release). See Given Name Reveal.
  • Not Brainwashed: Henrietta and Firkle in "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers".
  • Odd Friendship: Even after he stops being goth, Stan is occasionally seen to talk to the goth kids and it seems that he still gets along with them pretty well. They even give him advice in "Breast Cancer Show Ever".
  • One Steve Limit: Michael's name was revealed in an episode also featuring the Vampire Kids, including their leader, the similarly named Mike Makowski.
  • Out-of-Character Moment:
    • In the South Park theme that plays before every episode, Henrietta and Pete can be seen smiling and waving happily.
    • Michael is probably the most sedate of the group, but had anger management problems in "T.M.I."
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Pete, Firkle and Henrietta have these, but Pete really takes the cake, as his fringe is so long that he has to flip it out of his eyes every few minutes or so.
  • Shown Their Work: Despite a good chunk of the humor surrounding the goth kids coming from their depiction as walking stereotypes, Matt and Trey have been known to occasionally depict them as fairly accurate depictions (compared to most mainstream media, anyway) of the goth subculture. This ranges from their taste in music note , to the brand of dry/sarcastic humor found in some goths, the dislike of "posers" note , and in a rather odd way, displaying how members of the subculture differentiate themselves from other trends/subcultures that spawned from the original goth movement. Of course, this being South Park, it can be hard to differentiate the stereotype from the actual thing unless you have at least a decent understanding of what's being parodied.
  • Sibling Rivalry: Henrietta hates her younger brother Bradley and doesn't want to play with him when he asks her to, deeming him a dork.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Indeed; when insulting the emos and vamp kids, they ask "Do you even smoke?"
  • The Smurfette Principle: Not only does the group apply, Michael believes in this trope.
    Michael: We can't be a dance troupe with just guys, people will think we're fags.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": When Firkle's name was given on the show, fans had a few different ideas of how to spell it. The correct spelling comes from The Stick of Truth subtitles.
  • Teeny Weenie: If "T.M.I." is to be believed, Michael may have one.
  • Tranquil Fury: Michael is in anger management but the goths as a whole rarely raise their voices, suggesting that this is how he expresses anger.
  • True Companions: Despite the depressive vibe they try to give out, they do clearly care about and look out for each other. This also seems to extend to folks who used to be goth but left, given their Odd Friendship with Stan.
  • Vague Age: Due to his height, it's generally assumed that Michael is a few years older than Pete and Henrietta, but it's never stated.
  • Wangst: Intentional. Henrietta constantly complains about the horrible things her parents do to her, such as...refusing to let her go to a concert because her aunt is coming over...and complaining about the clothes she wears. Her mother is shown as wonderfully loving, which suggests that her reasons for being goth are slightly whinier than the others. Her father is a bit more serious, though.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Downplayed, but it's implied that something happened between the events of Stick of Truth and Fractured But Whole that caused them to have a falling out with the New Kid, as they behave at best somewhat dismissive, or at worst with bitter contempt, towards them. Which stands in high contrast to their treatment of Stan, who they're still on good terms with even after he left their group. Though they get somewhat more cordial with the New Kid after they help with their side quest in FBW, especially Henrietta, who becomes the New Kid's ally upon recruiting her in the DLC Side-Quest "From Dusk Till Casa Bonita", where she is shown to be a Support Party Member and arguably the best healer in the game.

    Kevin Stoley
"Perhaps we could use it to strengthen our star cruisers."

Voiced by: Matt Stone

A minor background character in the Boys' class and a Star Wars fan. He's usually unimportant, but joined Cartman's pirate crew in "Fatbeard".

  • Asian and Nerdy: While we don't know about his grades, he definitely qualifies as a geek.
  • Geek: Mostly about Star Wars.
  • Living Prop: Only gets used now and then when the writers want to show off his nerdy awkward nature, or to just give a generic line here and there.
  • Offscreen Romance: With Red. She'd broken up with him in "Skank Hunt", but like a number of other now-broken couples, we didn't even know they were dating. They didn't exactly have much canonicity, save for the fact that they hung around with each other in the background in earlier seasons.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted. Kevin is also the name of Kenny's brother, and Mephesto's sidekick, both of whom are even more prop-like. There are other random male characters with the name as well note .
  • Phrase Catcher: "Kevin, God damn it!" Said by Cartman when Kevin shows his love for sci-fi (usually Star Wars or Star Trek) at inappropriate times (such as carrying a toy lightsaber to Cartman's pirate club).
  • Retcon: Stated to be Chinese-American in Season 2's "Conjoined Fetus Lady" when he mentions "My parents are from China", though the Brooks couple in "My Future Self n' Me" are implied to be his parents and are Caucasian. They've popped up in parent gatherings in later episodes as well. Some take this as him being adopted, while other viewers figure the Chinese heritage was a one-episode deal that the writers quickly forgot about.
  • Sudden Name Change:
    • His last name was implied to be Brooks in "My Future Self n' Me", but later changed to Stoley in "Fatbeard".
    • He was originally named "Sky" in the Season 1-2 storyboards as well note , though Mr. Garrison referred to him as "Casey" in "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig".

    Bradley Biggle

His role in Coon and Friends is America's favorite superhero, Mintberry Crunch.

"I'd give anything to be with Bridon Gueermo, but he'd never go out with me. I'm nobody."

Voiced by: Eliza Schneider (2002?, see note)note , April Stewart (2004-?, see note) note , Mona Marshall (2008-present)

One of the minor female classmates and a part of Wendy and Bebe's group of friends. Used to be a background character more often seen with Kevin than with the other girls.

  • All Women Love Shoes: Also dated Clyde just to get a chance at getting free shoes.
  • Apathetic Citizen:
    • Looks bored during Gordon Stolski's murder during the morning announcements in "Dances with Smurfs".
    • Doesn't show any sympathy when Mr. Garrison announces that Butters "dies" in "Marjorine"; she instead just asks "who's Butters?". Though this isn't as harsh as it seems, since Butters didn't actually die in the episode.
  • Ascended Extra: Originally the most silent of the recurring female classmates, but began getting more of a speaking role starting with the sixth season. She even appears as an unlockable character in the Xbox Live South Park game Let's Go Tower Defense Play!
  • Beta Bitch: Seems to have hints of this in her appearances, whether it's to Wendy, Bebe, or another girl being the one to be primarily catty.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Not as extreme as Wendy or Bebe can get, but still can be pretty bad.
  • Early Installment Character-Design Difference: In the very first episode, she was originally shown wearing a light purple jacket rather than her modern navy blue one.
  • Gamer Chick: Red is seen playing Call of Duty: World at War in the computer lab, even gloating to Stan when she gets a kill-shot at him.
  • Girly Girl: Loves rainbows, sparkles, and boy bands as much as the other girls.
  • Kids Are Cruel: As with the other students and girls. Usually comes off cruelest in plots involving just the girls, such as in "Marjorine", "The List", and "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset".
  • Living Prop: For most of the show's run, but newer seasons will give her a line or two if we need a girl other than Wendy or Bebe.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name comes from the fact that she has red hair.
  • Satellite Character: Along with most of the other girls, she mostly exists to be one of Wendy and Bebe's friends.
  • Sudden Name Change: Red -> Bertha -> Rebecca -> Red once more.
  • Those Two Girls:
    • Often appears to be this with Annie in crowd and background shots.
    • It's not uncommon to see her paired up with Bebe when the latter isn't with Wendy.

    Annie Knitts
"I don't even know what a queef is!"

Voiced by: Mary Kay Bergman (1998-1999), Mona Marshall (2004-2009), April Stewart (2009-present)

Another tertiary student shown in 3rd/4th grade classroom over the course of the show. She's part of Wendy's group of friends, and that's really mostly it for her.

  • Ascended Extra: Though usually just a background character in the show, she gets a major role helping the New Kid in South Park: The Stick of Truth.
  • A Day in the Limelight: South Park: The Stick of Truth and "Skank Hunt".
  • Distaff Counterpart: To Butters. Both have blonde hair, are among the nicer and more naive of their respective cliques (Annie with the girls, Butters with the boys), are the targets of bullying, and display surprising leadership traits in spite of their ingenuousness.
  • The Ditz / Dumb Blonde: Although she's rarely characterized as much as the others, her brief lines and screentime basically amount to her seeming to be this.
  • Fangirl: The Stick of Truth shows her to be one of Justin Bieber, as she has a doll of him.
  • Informed Deformity: Wendy mentions that she has thin hair in "The Hobbit", but similar to the other people she insulted, this isn't visible to the audience.
  • Living Prop: Usually has very little to do, unless she's shown as part of Wendy's group. She does, however, get a bit of a role in the Stick of Truth game, where she'll befriend the player character after he defends her from a group of older girl bullies.
  • Nice Girl: Annie generally comes off as one of the nicer girls in the fourth grade. The Stick of Truth brings this trope out full force.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: Despite her naivete, she showed a lot of leadership for the girls to get revenge on the boys for assumptions that one of them is the notorious Internet troll in "Skank Hunt".
  • Satellite Character: Exists to show that Wendy has other friends besides Bebe.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Her initial surname was first assumed to be "Polk" for many years. Only the release of an official episode guide would confirm her surname to be spelled "Faulk". Up until it changed.
  • Sudden Name Change:
    • Referred to as "Annie" in the storyboards for Seasons 1 and 2, but was used as a character named "Jordan" in "Conjoined Fetus Lady" note . She was then referred to as "Annie" a full six seasons later, but would then briefly be called "Ashley" in "Butters' Bottom Bitch".
    • Her surname was also initially given as "Faulk" in Season 8, but it changed to "Nelson" by the end of Season 17 ("The Hobbit").
    • In The Stick of Truth she is referred to as Annie Knitts, and then it's changed back to Nelson in The Fractured But Whole.
  • Those Two Girls: The animators seem to pair her off with Red quite a bit in the background.

    Scott Malkinson
"Hey, don't make fun of my diabetes!"

Voiced by: Matt Stone

Another classmate that debuted in Season 12. He's considered very uncool to be seen hanging around since he has a lisp and diabetes.

His role in Coon and Friends is Captain Diabetes.

  • Ascended Extra: His biggest role was initially only in "Elementary School Musical", although he was re-used in the background in subsequent school scenes. He wound up utilized again in some significant part for the "Black Friday" saga in Season 17, as well as Season 18's "Gluten Free Ebola" and Season 20's "Skank Hunt".
  • Butt-Monkey: Plays this part to Cartman and the other boys in his debut episode, "Elementary School Musical", and is later mentioned to have been beaten up by Butters in "Going Native". He also suffers from starvation and the risk of dying from diabetes in the Black Friday Trilogy while he and Butters visit George R. R. Martin to ask for his help, and he just talks about Game of Thrones, mostly how much the series shows off people's wieners constantly, much to their disgust.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He can be seen briefly at the arcade room in Jeffersons' house in the Season 8 episode "The Jeffersons".
  • Nice Guy: One of the nicer classmates. He willingly helps the boys' attempts to win back their classmates' trust in "Gluten Free Ebola", and goes along with Butters to get George R. R. Martin's help in the Black Friday Trilogy.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: While most of the fourth graders lack visible ears in their designs, his ears are large and quite prominent.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted. As there are at least two other major "Scotts" (Scott Tennorman and Scott the Dick from Canada).
  • Replacement Flat Character: Takes on Butters' old role as the Butt-Monkey whom others only tolerate for their own benefit.
  • Speech Impediment: Has a lisp combined with his very nasally voice.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In his early days on the show, he was just your average Butt-Monkey. By the end of "Skank Hunt", you'll want to smack him just as much as Mr. Mackey does for him continuously threatening to quit Twitter and never actually following through.
  • Youthful Freckles: Sports these.

    David Rodriguez
"I guess you win, huh, big shot?! If you really are any kind of important to anybody, then get your bullshit food critic ass to the south of town and face me! Because you aren't a food critic, and you aren't important!"

Voiced by: Matt Stone

David is a Mexican-American student introduced in Season 19.

  • Flat Character: At least so far.
  • It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": His name is pronounced Da-VEED, not that Cartman cares.
  • Phrase Catcher: "Do you ride you tiny bicicleta to school?," from Cartman.
  • Run for the Border: Subverted; it's mentioned that he moved to South Park from some place awful, where people tend to settle disputes with their fists. He's from Boise, Idaho, not Mexico.
  • Sixth Ranger: Since his debut, he's been hanging with the four boys quite often.
  • Starving Student: Kind of; in his debut episode, he had to keep Cartman and the other Yelpers happy so that his family's new restaurant didn't fail.
  • Stranger in a Strange School: He's still getting used to some of the oddball characters.
  • Sudden Name Change: The show's official Twitter said his last name was "Teelez" after his debut, but a few episodes later, it was given as "Rodriguez".
  • Token Minority: Part of his purpose in Season 19 is to show that South Park has become more multicultural since the PC trend started.

    Nichole Daniels

Voiced by: Unknown note 

The newest girl in the 4th grade. Although she initially shows interest in Kyle, Cartman's manipulation leads to her realizing that Token is the one that she wants.

  • Apologises a Lot: In her debut episode, though she appears to have dropped this habit in her subsequent appearances.
  • Informed Deformity: Wendy mentions that she has puffy eyes in "The Hobbit", but similar to the other people she insulted, this isn't visible to the audience.
  • Love Interest: At first to Kyle, and then with Token.
  • Nice Girl: One of the nicest girls in the show and, with the exception of "Skank Hunt", has yet to be a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing.
  • Official Couple: With Token, to the point where she's shown with him and the other students in the episodes afterwards. Until she dumps him at the end of "Skank Hunt", leaving him devastated. However in "Dead Kids" she's trying to make her relationship with Token work again.
  • Token Minority: Is the only other black kid at South Park Elementary.

Voiced by: Trey Parker

Younger nerdier friend of Butters. Joins the latter in his quest to destroy the world after being rejected by the other kids, under the alias of Professor Chaos' minion, General Disarray.

  • Adorkable: His nerd-like nature and Kiddie Kid behavior give off this vibe.
  • Blind Without 'Em: Implied in South Park: Phone Destroyer. After he's defeated in Stage 24 and his defeat animation shows him losing his glasses, he sends a misspelled message in the group chat saying he can't find them.
  • Butt-Monkey: Was rejected and labeled a "Melvin" similar to Butters.
  • The Dragon: To Butters/Professor Chaos.
  • Fan of the Underdog: His friendship with Butters, and to a lesser extent Pip, probably counts as this.

  • Nerd: He likes math.
  • Nerd Glasses: A nerd and wears glasses.

  • Girly Girl: She loves shoes, sleepovers, and shopping just like all the other girls.
  • Gossipy Hens: Is shown gossiping to her friend Jenny in "Cartman Finds Love" about Kyle's rumored homosexuality.
  • Groin Attack: Receives one from Wendy after she disapproves of her decision to put Clyde at the top of the list just get a chance at getting free shoes. Doubles as a Brick Joke to an earlier attempt in the same episode "The List", when Cartman has Butters get the "Cutest to Ugliest Boys" list from Nelly by kicking her in the groin, but to no avail, leading Nelly to beat up Butters in retaliation.
  • Informed Deformity: Wendy mentions that her arms are too short in "The Hobbit", but similar to the other people she insulted, this isn't visible to the audience.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite her cattiness, she serves as one of the leading volunteers to help raise awareness in distracted driving in "Put It Down". She's also the only one to actually try to get her female peers to stop mocking Heidi's decision to date Cartman in "Doubling Down".
  • Living Prop: One of the least characterized out of all the girls.

  • Bungled Suicide: After being humiliated by crapping her pants in front of the entire class, she was mentioned to have jumped off the school roof, but still manages to survive the fall, and is shown to still be alive in later episodes.
  • Characterization Marches On: Her debut appearance in "The List" presents her as a malicious and self-serving jerk who was willing to undermine several boys' reputations and even her friend Wendy solely to get free shoes. Her subsequent appearances, however, present her as more of a naive Nice Girl.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: She was gullible enough to fall for Cartman's Laxative Prank after she feels remorseful for "rejecting" him.
  • Laxative Prank: Falls victim to one by Cartman.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: In "Bass to Mouth", she felt guilty for turning down Cartman's offer of friendship, and subsequently tried to make it up to him by trying one of his mom's cupcakes.

  • Fan Disservice: After everyone begins fawning over her thanks to Wendy's photoshopped image of her, she puts on a dominatrix-style outfit. Besides the fact that this extremely revealing outfit is being worn by a nine year old girl, her stomach fat bulges through it in a rather unflattering fashion.

  • Non-Standard Character Design: Aside from being chubbier, her hair has shading and highlights to it, and she doesn't wear winter clothing.

    Bill Allen and Fosse MacDonald
"Huh huh huh, that's gay!"

Voiced by: Trey Parker

Two bullies that find everything to be "gay". They were more prominent in Season 1 and earlier classroom scenes, but were phased out and relegated to being background characters at the school after the switch to 4th grade.

  • Aerith and Bob: Bill's name is a little more standard than his friend's.
  • Catchphrase: "Huh huh huh, that's gay!"
  • Co-Dragons: Acted as this to Mephesto's son Terrance.
  • Expy: Originally, they were parodies of Beavis and Butt-Head.
  • Generation Xerox: Their fathers briefly appear in "Damien", and look exactly like their sons and have the same "That's gay!" catchphrase. Bill's dad also appears in a cameo in "Ike's Wee Wee". Due to the rapid phasing out of these characters, the dads were quickly discarded.
  • The Hyena: They laugh at anything they find to be gay. Which is, to say, everything. Even to the point where they say "we're gay".
  • Living Prop: Their usual type of role these days.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Their thick eyebrows, Fosse's sparse hair, and Bill's visible ears. After they became relegated to the background, the animators stopped bothering to remember their thicker brows and they're now animated with the standard thin ones.
  • Sudden Name Change: Bill's name was given as "Bill Allen" in "T.M.I.", but he was then referred to as "Billy Turner" in "The Hobbit".
  • Those Two Guys: They acted in a more antagonistic version of the role through Season 1.

    Sally Turner
Note the hairclip, style, and clothing.
"Jason has a huge bulge. You're gonna get it, boys."

Voiced by: Jessie Thomas

A member of the girls' clique, who only appears as a background character.

  • A-Cup Angst: Is said to stuff her bra in "Quest for Ratings", though this is probably Malicious Slander.
  • Beta Bitch: Is one of Lizzy's lackeys in "Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000", but does not have any lines.
  • Dirty Kid: She, along with the rest of the girls after becoming stupid spoiled whores, hits on the boys walking by in the hallway, and even makes a comment on one student's erection.
  • I Ate WHAT: Is part of the Z-List who sing the opening number of "Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics", in which Mr. Hankey jumps into each child's mouth. None of them appear to notice.
  • Living Prop: One of the biggest examples. Unlike every other kid who debuted in the "Getting Gay With Kids" choir, she has remained a background character ever since, hardly getting any lines or prominence, save for a few speaking roles in "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset", the only episode where she speaks. Out-of-universe, some fans even mistakenly believe that she and Red are the same person.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted. She has the same last name as Heidi, but doesn't appear to be related.
  • Sudden Name Change: Her name was heard in "Quest for Ratings", yet oddly enough she was called "Powder" in "Follow That Egg!"

    The Kindergarten Class
Filmore: If I'm elected class president, I'll call for big ol' chairs. And on Fridays, I'll add two minutes to nap time. Thank you.

Voiced by: Nico Agnone (Filmore, Seasons 4-10), various other children note 

These characters first appeared in Season 4 and are Ike's fellow peers. They were phased out over time and only rarely appear now (or when children of the staff or other young talent can be brought in to voice them).

  • Meaningful Name: One indecisive child is named "Flora", which the creators meant as a pun on "Florida" (due to the ballot confusion during the 2000 election).
  • Out of Focus: In recent seasons, other than some minor background appearances.

     Nelson Brown 
"It's a pretty bad time for me, coach. I'm only five and I'm dying."

Voiced by: Dante Alexander
Debut: "Stanley's Cup"

An ill-fated member of the Pee Wee hockey team. Nelson has terminal cancer, but tries his best to stay positive, even as it's clear he doesn't have long to live.

  • The Cutie: He's lost his hair from chemotherapy, but that doesn't make him any less cute.
  • Determinator: He's clearly weak from his cancer when we first meet him, and seems to be going through chemotherapy, but is still playing hockey. He soon gets worse, though, and eventually has to be hospitalized.
  • Death by Despair: He succumbs to his illness when his team loses. "No hope..."
  • Kill the Cutie: He doesn't make it.
  • Littlest Cancer Patient: He soon ends up in the hospital when his cancer becomes terminal, and really wants Stan to win the big game for him. Sadly, he dies when he sees his team lose to the Red Wings.
  • 13 Is Unlucky: His jersey number is 13.

    Damien Thorn
"My arrival shall note the end of the Beginning, the beginning of the End, the new reign of my father!"

Voiced by: Matt Stone (first appearance), Trey Parker (The Stick of Truth)
Debut: "Damien"

Satan's son who was sent to South Park Elementary to destruct the school's property. He was hated on for being the son of the devil and exhibiting that persona very much, but it turned out he just wanted to be treated equally like the other kids.

  • Anti-Antichrist: As noted in his description, all the kids at school hated him for being Satan's son and showing off evil characteristics, but he just wanted acceptance after all.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Damien". It's the only episode where he has a major role.
  • Evil Wears Black: Wears all black, and is as foreboding as you'd expect a child of Satan to be. But subverted, as he's not nearly as evil as people think, and really just wanted to have friends.
  • Living Prop: After his debut, he was relegated to a background and still occasionally appears as one today. His only other speaking role came from The Stick of Truth game.
  • Lonely at the Top: Despite his unnerving appearance, he's really just a lonely kid who wanted friends.
  • Retcon: Was implied to have went back to Hell with his father at the end of the episode, but still appears in the background at South Park Elementary.
  • Vocal Evolution: His second speaking appearance in The Stick of Truth portrays him with a more mature voice that sounds drastically different from the high-pitched voice he once had.

    Bridon Gueermo
"I joined the basketball team. I gave up singing and dancing forever. I'm just not into it."

Voiced by: Trey Parker

A third grader who has seen High School Musical over 100 times and is an extremely talented singer and dancer. Despite this however, singing and dancing aren't his hobbies; he really wants to play basketball instead.

  • Abusive Parents: His dad always beats him up for choosing to be a basketball player instead of a singer and dancer until the end of his episode. His mom, however, is an aversion and tries her best to protect him from his dad's cruel punishments and ridicules.
  • The Ace: There doesn't appear to be anything he's bad at. Despite hating musical theatre because his father forced him into it, his mere presence (and the kids' High School Musical fandom) causes the other students to spontaneously break into song and dance. All the girls like him despite him being a year younger, and he can shoot free throws effortlessly. On the other hand, he's an Extreme Doormat until the climax of his episode.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Despite all the girls ceaselessly fantasizing about him, he returns no interest in them whatsoever (though this could be because singing and dancing aren't his hobbies despite him being talented at both). Furthermore, his last name Gueermo is pronounced and spelled similarly to "Queermo"note , and his dad shows off effeminate characteristics.
  • Broken Ace: Despite his ace qualities, he has an abusive father to deal with.
  • Expy: He's a parody of Troy Bolton from the High School Musical films.
  • Lady Killer: All the girls at school have a crush on him because he's seen High School Musical over 100 times and is thus really good at singing and dancing.

"Thanks, Butters. I'm sore-y I didn't know what ice cream was."

Voiced by: Jessie Jo Thomas, Jessica Makinson

A Canadian girl that Butters met and was forced to date in order to give her a "Hot Cosby."

    Kip Drordy
"Mom, Dad! I made a friend today!"

Voiced by: Trey Parker
Debut: "You Have 0 Friends"

A boy who felt lonely for being a friendless Facebook user. That was, until Kyle sent him a friend request.

  • Butt-Monkey: An outcast that nobody wanted to be friends with due to his appearance. This is later shown in "Butterballs", where he serves as the director of Stan's anti-bullying music video.
  • Cool-Kid-and-Loser Friendship: Develops one with Kyle after he felt sympathetic for him having no friends throughout his six months as a Facebook user. Unfortunately, this causes Kyle to lose his popularity status among his friends.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: He gets all of Stan's friends at the end.

    Terrance Mephesto
"Hey dumbasses. You morons give up on your stupid science fair project yet?"

Voiced by: Matt Stone

  • The Bully: Towards the four main boys, due to facing competition between them for the science fair project.
  • Bus Crash: South Park The Fractured But Whole reveals that he was killed by Mecha-Streisand, all the way back in Season 1 no less.
  • Competition Freak: Cloning an entire human body in order to surpass the boys' pig and elephant experiment is his number-one priority throughout the episode.
  • The Dragon: Acted as this towards Bill and Fosse for the genetic engineering project.
  • Living Prop: Never spoke again after his debut and was immediately relegated to a background character afterwards (and surprisingly still occasionally appears in the series throughout these 19 years). Gets even stranger when South Park: The Fractured but Whole reveals that he was Killed Off for Real in "Mecha Streisand".

One-Shot Students

    Gary Harrison, Jr.
"It's really tough being in a totally new place, but I think all you guys are really cool so... I understand if there's initiation rites."

Voiced by: Kyle Mcculloch

The first Mormon character on South Park. He tries to befriend Stan fairly quickly.

  • The Ace: Is both smart and athletic, doesn't let the other kids' teasing get to him, and probably the nicest kid, nay, person, in all of South Park.
  • All-Loving Hero: Arguably the nicest character in the entire series, able to forgive teasing or threats, and see the good side to everything.
  • Child Prodigy: Pretty intelligent for a kid.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Coming from Gary, this line is actually quite shocking and powerful, to the point that even Cartman is proud of it:
    "You’ve got a lot of growing up to do, buddy. Suck my balls."

    Christophe "Ze Mole"
"What do you think this is, kid? TV kiddy hour where we all sit around and lick Barney the dinosaur's fucking pussy? Huh? This is real life, with consequences you take to the grave!"

Voiced by: Trey Parker

A bitter French nine-year-old boy with an intense hatred of God. An expert in covert operations.

  • Back from the Dead: Although it's only a blink-and-you'll-miss-it shot, he makes a reappearance in "Two Guys Naked in a Hot Tub" where he's shown on Late Night with Conan O'Brien while Stan flips through channels. This implies that he was reincarnated after Kenny's wish in The Movie for everything to go back to normal.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Has noticeably thicker eyebrows than most of the characters.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: He dies in Kyle's arms.
  • Expy: Suspiciously similar to Grantaire from Les Misérables. His death also brings to mind that of Eponine from the same musical.
  • French Jerk: He's French, and hates God.
  • The Napoleon: He's even described as small and bitter in the movie's script.
  • One-Shot Character: The Movie is practically his only appearance in the entire South Park franchise. His only reappearance was an extremely brief cameo in "Two Guys Naked in a Hot Tub".
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: Hates God and isn't afraid to show it.
  • Rage Against the Heavens: Does this constantly. It's one of his defining traits as a character.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Is always shown with a cigarette in his mouth, despite not being of legal age to smoke.
  • Tunnel King: He digs his way to free Terrance and Phillip, but Cartman fails to shut off the alarm in time and he is mauled by guard dogs.

    Gregory of Yardale
"I must say, I don't think I belong with these rogues. I attended school at Yardale, and had a 4.0 grade point average."

Voiced by: Trey Parker (speaking), Howard McGillin (singing)

An English boy who transferred to South Park from Yardale.

  • The Ace: He had a 4.0 grade point average during his attendance at school in Yardale. He seems to be far more politically competent than Stan as shown in the La Resistance meeting at Carl's Warehouse.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Despite his disparaging of the other kids while they're all in swearing rehab, and generally coming off as a ponce, he takes charge in La Résistance and plans out the rescue of Terrance and Phillip. It's clear that Stan only hates him because he is a rival for Wendy's affection.
  • Love Interest: Of Wendy. She becomes interested in him after they realize they both share similar political views, get good grades and have great intelligence. She eventually abandons Stan for him, and her attempts to get him (Stan) back fail after he vomits on her every time she comes near him.
  • One-Shot Character: Only appears in the movie.
  • Only One Name: His last name was never given. To add extension to his name, he is occasionally referred to as "Gregory of Yardale".
  • The Rival: Of Stan, due to him hanging around his girlfriend all the time. Jealousy ensues.
  • Romantic False Lead: Wendy doesn't care for him anymore at the end of the movie.

"Y-you wanna know about fun? Going to public places knowing you're going to make a fool of yourself. Embarrass your parents. Aw shit! My dad... finally couldn't take it anymore. He... divorced my mom, s-said he'd still be around, but I only see him at Christmas time now. S-sh-shit! S-sh-shit! The worst part is I know how lonely my mom is. A lot of times I know she'd be better off if I was dead."

Voiced by: Matt Stone

A boy with Tourette's Syndrome that causes him to blurt out obscenities. Because of this, Cartman is influenced by his ability to get away with swearing harshly in front of everyone and fakes Tourette's Syndrome to do so.

  • Exhausted Eye Bags: Has these under his eyes. From this it can be assumed that he doesn't get much sleep, possibly due to his Tourette's Syndrome.
  • Hollywood Tourette's: Has Tourette's Syndrome.
  • Identical Stranger: Acts and sounds very similar to Tweek; both are always shaky and nervous, have spiky blonde hair, and don't get much sleep.
  • One-Shot Character: Only appeared in "Le Petite Tourette".
  • One Steve Limit: Averted. Thomas is also Craig's dad's name. (Ironically enough, Craig becomes friends with this kid near the end of the episode.)
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Taken Up to Eleven due to his Tourette's.

    Tammy Warner
"There's lots of rumors goin' around about me, that I agreed to give a boy a B.J.? Well, it's true. But it was before you and I were together, and it wasn't my fault!"

Debut: "The Ring"

Kenny's one-time girlfriend, who once gave another boy a "BJ" in the parking lot of a T.G.I. Friday's after listening to The Jonas Brothers.

  • Good Bad Girl: Yes, she gave both Kenny and another boy blow jobs, but she feels bad about it.
  • My Girl Is a Slut: The other boys tell Kenny about her giving someone a BJ, thinking that he'll dump her, but he's overjoyed.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Seems to regret having given a blowjob before dating Kenny, and therefore asks him to wear a purity ring after the Jonas Brothers concert, only to change her mind later, such that Kenny dies of syphilis.invoked
  • One-Shot Character: Only appears in "The Ring".
  • Slut-Shaming: Everyone in school except for Kenny thinks that what she did in the T.G.I. Friday's parking lot is horrible. Of course, she's ten.
  • Take That!: Some have suggested that her name is a reference to Time-Warner.
  • Typhoid Mary: Kenny gets syphilis from her, but she shows no symptoms of the disease.
  • Up to Eleven: Her family is apparently even poorer than Kenny's, though "The Poor Kid" seems to ignore this.
