    Wendy Testaburger
"Will somebody do something? Every week, [Eric Cartman] gets worse and nobody does anything!"

Voiced by: Karri Turner (1996, pilot version of "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe"), Mary Kay Bergman (1997-1999), Eliza Schneider (1999-2003), April Stewart (2004-present)

A girl in Stan's class, and his primary love interest. She breaks up with him in season 7 due to believing he was bored with her, though they get back together with him at the end of season 11. However she (reluctantly) breaks up with Stan again in Season 20 due to the other girls believing he and the boys shares the sexist opinions of notorious internet troll skankhunt42 (although they appear to be together once more in The Fractured but Whole).

Although she wasn't part with Coon and Friends, in the video game South Park: The Fractured but Whole, her superhero identity is Call Girl. She wound up becoming a member of the Freedom Pals along with the rest of Coon and Friends.

  • Action Girlfriend: In "Breast Cancer Show Ever".
  • All Girls Like Ponies: "Breast Cancer Show Ever" reveals that underneath her purple coat is a white tank top with a purple unicorn on it.
  • Badass Adorable: She hired a group of Iraqis to shoot a woman into the sun and has shown herself to be able to engage in a violent fight if anyone makes insensitive comments about breast cancer.
  • Be a Whore to Get Your Man:
    • Tries this when Stan develops a crush on Ms. Ellen, only for the latter to coincidentally show up wearing leather, thus stealing Stan's attention away from Wendy again.
    • She also gets huge tits to get the attention from the boys in "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society", but ends up arriving after everyone learns their lesson, resulting in everyone just making fun of her.
    • The ending of "The Hobbit" also culminates in this. Despite her attempts not to bow to the pressure, she winds up breaking down and altering a photo of herself to make herself into a bombshell to not be ostracized by her peers.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Develops with Cartman after the two are paired together for a debate over the new South Park flag in "Chef Goes Nanners". Bebe identifies that they have sexual tension and suggests that she should kiss him to get it out of her system. Wendy later does so, and all her feelings she had for Cartman completely vanish.
  • Berserk Button: Wendy does not take kindly to it when other women try to get between her and Stan. (See Kids Are Cruel and Karma Houdini.)
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She may seem nice, but fuck with her and she will reveal herself to be this. "Tom's Rhinoplasty" is a perfect example of such. "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society" and "Doubling Down" also show this side to her.
  • Brainy Brunette: Has dark hair and is one of the most intelligent students in her grade.
  • Butt-Monkey: Her boyfriend frequently pukes on her and, whenever she gets A Day in the Limelight, it's usually a Humiliation Conga.
  • Characterization Marches On: Started out as Stan's sweet and innocent crush before quickly becoming more liberal and insanely possessive of him. Her clingy jealous attitude was dialed back a bit in the later seasons, but she's also not as in focus as she used to be.
  • The Chick: She was probably the only prominent female child character in the show's early days, before Bebe and Heidi—the only other female students with established personalities—became more major characters. She also plays this role when serving as the Boys' Sixth Ranger.
  • Child Prodigy: She's probably second only to Kyle as far as brains go in the fourth grade and is the class president. She's also shown to be very knowledgeable when it comes to politics (which she probably gets from her mother who is on the city council) and on top of her intelligence she's also a talented athlete.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: In her less extreme moments in regards to her affection for Stan.
  • The Cutie: Especially in the earlier seasons, Wendy was, for the most part, an innocent little Nice Girl with a cutesy voice.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Weight Gain 4000", "Tom's Rhinoplasty", "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset", "Breast Cancer Show Ever", and "The Hobbit".
  • Dude Magnet: She attracts the most onscreen boys out of her female peers (apart from "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society"). She has an on-and-off relationship with Stan and was in a brief relationship with Token. Also, Cartman, Butters and Clyde have expressed a strong attraction to Wendy, much to her disgust.
  • Flanderization: Started out as an everyday token female with the occasional...episodic quirk (see "Tom's Rhinoplasty"). Later on she pretty much became the Lisa Simpson and Brian Griffin of the show, a walking liberal mouthpiece for Stone and Parker.
  • Gag Boobs: Gets breast implants in "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society" to win Stan back.
  • Girly Bruiser: She has no problem beating up Cartman in a pink hat and unicorn shirt for making offensive comments on breast cancer. She's also moonlights as super-hero Call Girl.
  • Guile Heroine: Usually to deal with Cartman's various schemes is to dismantle them through her wits.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Has shades of this with Bebe, mostly in the earlier seasons.
  • Humiliation Conga:
    • In "Tom's Rhinoplasty" Stan wins dinner with Ms. Ellen, who becomes their permanent teacher, and receives news that her grandma had died.
    • In "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society" she loses her boyfriend to Bebe because of the latter's new-developed breasts, and undergoes a painful breast implant operation just to be mocked the next day for her over-sized breasts.
    • In "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset", she eventually succumbs to peer pressure and dresses more like a whore. When her friends still refuse to invite her to their party, she asks Mr. Slave for advice on how to become one.
    • In "The Hobbit", she has her anti-Photoshop comments waved off as her being a "hater" and "jealous" and then she is periodically threatened by being sent to the "jelly-school" as well as ostracized by her peers, and is ultimately pressured into altering her photograph just so she can be accepted (with her crying all the while).
  • Imaginary Love Triangle:
    • In The Movie, when Stan thought she had a thing for Gregory of Yardale.
    • Then with Kyle in "Follow That Egg!"
    • And then with Bridon Gueermo in "Elementary School Musical".
    • In "Tom's Rhinoplasty" she believed Ms. Ellen returned Stan's affection.
  • Informed Deformity: She mentions having pimples on her forehead and crooked bottom teeth in "The Hobbit", but these aren't visible to the viewers.
  • Karma Houdini: She never got any kind of punishment for having an innocent woman killed, as mentioned above.
  • Kids Are Cruel: One of the earliest and extreme examples of just how cruel the students could go, mainly due to her having an innocent woman killed just because she thought said woman liked Stan.
  • Little Miss Badass: She's proven herself to be a competent fighter, and is more than capable of kicking Cartman's ass, as shown in "Breast Cancer Show Ever".
  • Love Interest: For Stan. They break up for a few seasons but get back together in "The List". However, she breaks up with Stan again in Season 20's "Skank Hunt" (though it was out of peer pressure due to the girls conspiring with each other to get revenge on the boys, assuming that one of them shares the sexist views of internet troll skankhunt42; as such, she showed a lot of reluctance). They appear to have gotten back together in The Fractured But Whole.
  • Miss Swears-a-Lot: She is shown to cuss frequently like the boys.
  • Nice Hat: Her pink beret, rarely seen without it. She wears a violet one when attempting to get Stan's attention in "Tom's Rhinoplasty", and a red one when dressed as a boy for the Fingerbang band.
  • Nice Girl: At her best, she is usually very friendly, sympathetic toward others, and often is more than happy to help out Stan and his friends whenever they encounter a problem.
  • No Holds Barred Beat Down: With Cartman in "Breast Cancer Show Ever".
  • Only Sane Woman: Mostly among her female peers in "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset", "The List", and "The Hobbit".
  • Opinion Override: Is obsessed with standing up for groups of people she feels are discriminated against - and is mocked for it by Cartman & friends as an example of Political Correctness Gone Mad, at least until PC Principal shows up.
  • Out of Focus: Although her prominence often fluctuated throughout the series run, her role has greatly diminished after her breakup with Stan in season 20. Since 2016, she has only had a speaking part in five episodes, the majority of which are brief minor appearances during scenes involving the girls as a whole.
  • Precision F-Strike: From The Movie:
    Fuck Gregory! Fuck him right in the ear!
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Outspoken, strong-willed, and passionate, she is the red to Stan's, who's more stoic and deadpan, blue.
  • The Rival: Starting with "Breast Cancer Show Ever", she and Cartman are enemies. This doesn't prevent some tension from being present.
  • Sixth Ranger: More often than not in the first few seasons. Especially prominent in Season 1 as well as isolated episodes such as "Something You Can Do with Your Finger".
  • Soapbox Sadie: Gets toned down later on, and subverted a couple of times as well.
  • Straw Feminist: Can be seen as this, depending on how Parker and Stone want to use her for a plot.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Taken Up to Eleven in "Breast Cancer Show Ever".
  • Tuckerization: Her name is based on 'Wendy Westaburger', the wife of one of Matt Stone's friends.
  • Vigilante Man: She's an unaffiliated superhero in Fractured But Whole, and seems to be the only one (outside Mysterion) who works as a superhero outside of the kids' glorified LARP.
  • Vocal Evolution: She had a very high-pitched, cutesy voice in the earliest episodes. In more recent seasons, her voice has become much more mature and womanly, fitting with her character development.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: She even complains about breast cancer rather than finding breasts hilarious like an average Elementary School girl.
  • Women Are Wiser: Though she is still somewhat shrill at times, she actually comes off as more level headed than Stan in most of their recent interactions (which is saying something considering Stan's own personality). Played with in earlier episodes where both of them were near equally childish and obnoxious.
  • Yandere: Do not get between her and Stan.
  • You Go, Girl!: When she's fighting Cartman.

    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.

  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Jimmy was born the way he was because of the way his parents used to make fun of crippled people.
  • Badass Adorable/Handicapped Badass: Just about every episode he stars in has him do something awesome, from fighting with a pimp to joining the Crips, all while on crutches and maintaining his childish innocence throughout the whole affair.
    • It's taken further in both The Stick of Truth and The Fractured But Whole, where Jimmy takes the role of either the Bard of Larnion or the superhero Fastpass, "the fastest kid in town". He even has A Day in the Limelight DLC sidequest in the latter, focusing on him and saving his favorite summer camp at Lake Tardicaca.
    • Even before he resorts to using steroids in "Up The Down Steroid" Jimmy is shown to possess impressive upper body strength for a child as he's able to bench press a heavy barbell for seven reps. This makes sense as he would be exercising his arms every day since he uses them to walk.
    • He becomes a full-out hero in Season 19, as it's revealed that he has a natural ability to distinguish between Ads (which, in the South Park universe, are living, sentient beings) and reality. This power allows him to learn the truth about the Ads' leader Leslie, tell the town about their scheme, and ultimately allow PC Principal to save the day.
  • Big Damn Heroes: In "P.C. Principal: Final Justice," he (with the help of newfound ally Classi) arrives at the South Park Gun Show just in time to prevent a massive shootout and reveal the truth behind the Ads' schemes to gentrify the entire world and eliminate the human race.
  • Breakout Character: Was originally a one-shot character in "Cripple Fight" and not even a resident of South Park. The creators took a liking to him and integrated him further into the cast and classroom, deciding that he'd be easier to write for than Timmy, even portraying them as best friends as opposed to their previous (one-sided) rivalry in "Cripple Fight". Nowadays, he's easily one of the most recognizable students in the Fourth Grade class and is either hanging out as a member of Craig's Gang or hanging out with Timmy.
  • Catchphrase: "Wow, what a terrific audience!"
    • "I mean, come on!"
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Krazy Kripples", "Up the Down Steroid", "Erection Day", and "Sponsored Content".
  • Dirty Kid: His sexuality in South Park: The Fractured but Whole is described as "Yes please".
  • Gag Penis: During a dream sequence in "Erection Day".
  • Good Cannot Comprehend Evil: A Running Gag with him, especially in his earlier episodes, was him being so incredibly good natured that he fails to understand when people are being nasty to him, and just keeps being friendly. This originally happened with Timmy in "Cripple Fight" (though he caught on there), and is the basis for his dynamic with Nathan: where Nathan schemes to screw him over, and Jimmy doesn't even realize it's happening. This is carried over to Fastpass' Day in the Limelight DLC Side-quest of the Fractured But Whole as well.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: It turns out that he has the innate ability to tell ads apart from genuine news. Sounds pretty lame on paper, right? Well, not when A. the Ads become sentient, B. they're planning to take over the entire world, and C. they're able to take on human forms and blend into society seamlessly. Jimmy's gift is responsible for saving all of humanity!
  • Inspirationally Disadvantaged: Parodied: he's terrible at stand-up comedy because of his stutter (it makes him unable to deliver jokes with any kind of timing), but always ends up winning talent shows and applause anyway because people feel bad for him.
  • Ironically Disabled Artist: Jimmy has a pervasive stutter and stammer, but his main pursuit is stand-up comedy, meaning his jokes often take a little while longer to deliver. He's also a bard in the game South Park: The Stick of Truth, and has the same issue when singing.
  • 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!
  • Logical Weakness: Taking away his crutches renders him helpless, as he can't walk under his own power. Leslie does this to him in the Season 16 finale to keep him from interfering with the Ads' plans, and it's not until Classi returns them that he's able to help thwart the scheme.
  • Nice Guy: Usually. Notable exceptions are "Up the Down Steroid", "Funnybot", and "Freemium Isn't Free".
  • Oblivious to Hatred: Nathan notoriously loathes Jimmy, but no matter how blunt he is, Jimmy can never seem to get the picture. In "Cripple Fight" he's also utterly oblivious to how much Timmy resents him until he gets told directly.
  • Only Sane Man: In "Imaginationland", he is the only kid who seems to care more about how obsessed Cartman is with Kyle sucking his (Cartman's) balls rather than Kyle's refusal to do it.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: He considers himself to be this with his passion for stand-up comedy.
  • Porky Pig Pronunciation: Due to his stutter.
  • Pretty Fly for a White Guy: When he joins the Crips in "Krazy Kripples".
  • Recorded and Stand-Up Comedy: Does not go well with the Speech Impediment as one may imagine, though he's regarded as relatively talented In-Universe.
  • Remember the New Guy?: In "Erection Day", Kyle says Jimmy always wins the talent show, which Garrison later says is annual.
  • School Newspaper News Hound: Takes student journalism very seriously - including scoring an interview with Dick Cheney for the school's newscast and resisting any form of editorial control from PC Principal.
  • Sixth Ranger: Whenever the main group gets bigger than 5 or one of the main characters is preoccupied with a different subplot, he is the usual sixth member, though Clyde and Token are not uncommon.
  • Speech Impediment: Stuh-stuh-stutters a lot.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Oftentimes spelled as Vulmer.
  • Sudden Name Change: Jimmy Swanson -> Jimmy Valmer. The first was shown in "Krazy Kripples", while the latter started being used in "Up the Down Steroid."

    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.

  • 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). Even Wendy finds it cute when Clyde has one of his outbursts.
    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 2 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, although 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.
  • Butt-Monkey: Just as Kyle is the brunt of most of Cartman's antisemitism, Token suffers the most from Cartman's racism. Cartman even shot him point blank with a pistol at one point.
  • 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 more so 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.
  • Jerkass Ball: Openly admits in "Raising the Bar" that he is willing to exploit the obesity crisis in America simply because it appears to affect whites rather than blacks.
  • 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. However, in South Park: The Fractured but Whole, Nichole does express concern for Token at times, and the very first episode of Season 22 had Nichole stating that they were trying to get their relationship starting up again.

    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 (and sometimes Tweek).

His role in Coon and Friends is Super Craig.

  • Arch-Enemy: He seemed to be this to Mr Mackey in "Tweek Vs. Craig" since the latter was sick of him being sent to his office. Their animosity towards each other resurfaced in The Stick of Truth.
  • Armoured 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.
  • Berserk Button: Insulting his guinea pig Stripe seems to be a good way to make him angry as we see in "Tweek Vs. Craig".
  • 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: As of Season 12, 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. The only time he's ever lost his cool tone was when he lost control of his emotions while arguing with Tweek.
    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: Craig is repeatedly shown to be snarky, rude, and cynical, but 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".
  • It Runs in the Family: Craig gets his nasally voice from his mother.
  • 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, where his characterization was cemented as a Deadpan Snarker. 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.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: After they officially get together, he tries to be this to Tweek (who genuinely seems calmer and more confident when he's around), but it doesn't always work since he's not that good with messy things like emotions.
  • Meta Guy: In "Pandemic," his observations about the boys and their adventures feel a lot like overall commentary on the show. For instance, he points out that normal kids have normal problems like falling off their bikes or arguing with their parents, and when Stan and Kyle protest that "these things just happen," he retorts that nine times out of ten, they're choosing to pursue some Zany Scheme or get involved with something that's best left alone.
  • 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 affectionate 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.
  • Only Sane Man: He's one of the only characters to ever point out how the main quartet's nutty schemes are ludicrous. Craig also demonstrates that, when those nutty schemes come up, it's possible to simply walk away from them.
  • 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. Even Cartman realizes how messed up Tweek's home life is:
    Cartman: God, what the hell do his parents do to him?
  • Aerith and Bob: Everyone has normal names, and this guy is named "Tweek".
  • Alliterative Name: Tweek Tweak.
  • Armoured 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!", "They're gonna get me!" and "Oh Jesus!!!"
  • Character Tics: 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.
  • Cowardly Lion: He's capable of pretty brave things if pushed, but none of them (so far) have cured his default mode of anxiety bordering on panic.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Gnomes", which is also his debut episode. 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 "Put It Down". In the beginning of the episode, he "plays" a song by banging on the piano and screeching because he's too afraid of incipient nuclear war to be coherent.note . When performing the episode's eponymous song with Craig, he does just fine.
  • Freak Out: Every time he appears: his anxiety and twitchiness are largely played for laughs.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • "Tweek x Craig" reveals that he's a surprisingly good improvisational actor.
    • "Put It Down" reveals that he can bake well enough to impress Kim Jong Un, and that he's a gifted pianist when 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.
  • Holding Hands: Frequently seen holding hands with Craig in background scenes.
  • 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.
  • Messy Hair: Tweek's hair sticks out all over the place, adding to his disheveled appearance.
  • 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.
  • Nice Guy: His anxiety problems notwithstanding, he is usually pleasant and well-meaning.
  • Official Couple: With Craig since "Tweek x Craig". Seems to rely on Craig for support, and Craig calls him pet names 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: In any other show, he'd be a lesson in not letting your fears get the best of you. In South Park, everything he's afraid of has happened, could happen, or is happening now.
    [The boys are standing around a snowman who is only missing his nose, holding a carrot.]
    Stan: Okay, now put on the nose, Tweek.
    Tweek: I can't, you do it!
    Kyle: Just stick it on.
    Tweek: But what if I put it in the wrong place?
    Stan: Just put it between his eyes.
    Tweek: AGH! But what if, while I'm putting on the nose, the snowman comes to life and tries to kill me?
    Stan: Tweek, when has that ever happened, except for that one time?
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The panicky, emotional, skittish 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.
  • Sixth Ranger: Ever since Tweek became Craig's boyfriend, he's been shown to be another member of Craig's Gang in various episodes.
  • 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 comments "I like sausage!" when Clyde complains that the South Park: Phone Destroyer group chat is 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.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Even if it started as a joke, Craig has been a very good and supportive boyfriend to him, and their healthy relationship is a nice contrast to the treatment he gets from his Abusive Parents.
  • Twitchy Eye: Seen with this often.
  • Verbal Tic: Along with every kind of other tic.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Inexplicably vanished from the main boys' group as fourth friend off-screen before Kenny's return (while Butters was "fired" from the position), 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).
  • Characterization Marches On: Timmy's earlier appearances left it ambiguous if he was really "all there" in the head as he didn't always seem like he was fully aware of what was going on around him. Over time, it became a lot more clear that he not only was, but was actually very intelligent. He just isn't always able to show it due to his limited vocabulary.
  • 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 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.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: Due to the nature of the show itself, it's hard to tell if Timmy may actually be telepathic. On one hand, it could just be all the kids pretending he's reading and speaking to their minds when playing superheroes together. On the other hand, his ability to communicate everything he does to them while only being physically able to say few words only makes sense if you assume that the telepathy is real, and South Park is just too used to its weirdness to comment on it much. Neither the show nor the game have confirmed it one way or another yet.
  • No Indoor Voice: Tends to SHOUT his name rather than say it ("TIMMAH!").
  • 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.

  • All Women Love Shoes: And Bebe loves them more than all.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society".
  • D-Cup Distress: Doesn't like how her newly-defined breasts have caused the boys to give her unwanted attention and the girls to ostracize her.
  • The Dragon: To Wendy, usually. She can also be this way to anyone else if the girls are the intended antagonists for the episode.
  • Early Installment Character Design Difference: Was originally shown wearing a green jacket in "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe" and would later be shown wearing a pink one in "Weight Gain 4000" and "Pinkeye".
  • Gag Boobs: There was a scene in "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society" where her boobs actually talked.
  • Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: While she may be one of the more feminine girls, she also enjoys partaking in many hobbies that aren't considered "feminine", like throw rocks at ongoing car with the boys, and playing Call of Duty: World at War in the computer lab, even Flipping the Bird at Cartman when she gets a kill shot at him.
  • Hidden Buxom: Seems to have gotten a bigger sweater after "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society" to hide her breasts.
  • Hidden Depths: She wants to be a lawyer or a marine biologist.

    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.
  • Tiny Tim Template: While he is primarily based of the character from Great Expectations, he does have shades of being this, being a British-voiced orphan (though he originally wasn't), and tends to suffer a lot of abuse from everyone in town, although he has no permanent visible injuries on him. Nevertheless, he still manages to keep a chipper attitude despite all of his bad luck. Up until his death in Season 14, anyway.

    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, possibly even "conformist" names.
  • Ambiguously Brown: 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: They all gripe about life being pain and misery as part of their gothic lifestyle, especially Michael and Henrietta, despite their lives not being depicted as very miserable at all.
  • 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 realize 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 Tics: 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: "The Ungroundable" and "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers" (which even gives them their own version of the opening theme) make them the focus of the plot, both of which revolve around taking down a rival subculture.
  • Enfant Terrible: Firkle is a small child willing to kill Mysterion as part of his duty to Cthulhu.
  • 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: They're all stereotypical Goths, though Trey and Matt have Shown Their Work in regards to the nuances of the goth subculture though.
  • 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 humor comes from being cookie-cutter stereotypes who, despite acting rebellious and nonconformist, look down on anyone who doesn't conform to them.
      "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."
    • In the episode "You Got F'd in the A", Stan is looking for recruits of his dance troupe and one by one the Goths refuse out of being non-conformist. However, Mike hesitates before proclaiming he is such a non-conformist he won't conform to his friends' expectations. He accepts Stan's offer and leaves the other Goth kids stunned:
      Henrietta: I think we just got put in our place.
      Pete: Yeah, we just got goth-served.
    • 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. The official Twitter for the show also referred to the boys as "Hair Flip, "Tall Goth", and "Little Goth", shortly before their official names were revealed. An excerpt of the episode's script also used those placeholders.
  • Not Brainwashed: "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers" reveals that Henrietta and Firkle were not "brainwashed" into being emo. Firkle willingly switched sides out of defeatism while Henrietta switched over out of free will. She is embarassed when she realizes this and her friends instead go along with the ruse to have her save face.
  • 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: They smoke frequently, deeming it a necessity of their subculture. When insulting the emos and vamp kids, they ask "Do you even smoke?"
  • The Smurfette Principle: Henrietta is the only girl in the group. Michael also brings the trope up in "You Got F'd in the A" when he suggests finding a girl in their dance troupe.
    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 a small penis.
  • 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.
  • Vocal Evolution: Michael and Pete's voices were originally much higher and more nasal. By their third appearance they'd gotten noticeably deeper.
  • 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.

"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: He's said to be Asian in "Conjoined Fetus Lady" and while we don't know about his grades, he definitely qualifies as a geek.
  • Geek: He often talks about about Star Wars.
  • Identical Stranger: There's a 4th grade girl called Esther, who basically looks like a female version of him.
  • Informed Attribute: He doesn't appear to be Asian compared to the other Asian characters that appeared in the show.
  • 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".

Voiced by: Eric Stough ("Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society"), Matt Stone (present)

A mild-mannered, attractive fourth grader and the younger adopted brother of Henrietta.

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

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.

  • Advertised Extra: The commercials made it seemed like Red was going to have a prominent role in the "Vaccination Special", but in the actual episode Red was still a background character, albeit still joining the Lil'Qties in fighting The Boys.
  • 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! and gets her own character cards in South Park: Phone Destroyer, with two of them being Legendaries.
  • 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 Bruiser: Joined the Lil'Qties in battling the Boys in the "Vaccination Special", specifically fighting Kyle.
  • Girly Girl: Loves rainbows, sparkles, and boy bands as much as the other girls.
  • Given Name Reveal: Of the surname variety—in "The Pandemic Special", her surname is revealed to be McArthur.
  • 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: Although she's rarely characterized as much as the others, her brief lines and screen time 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: Despite being featured on the show since the first episode and never leaving the classroom, she does not really have much of an established personality and has yet to receive any major character development. Judging by the times where she is characterized, she does have potential to be like a female Butters due to their similarities as aforementioned. She 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". He has more prominent roles in several episodes of Season 23 and eventually gets an episode centered around himself in Season 23's "Basic Cable". He even has a major role in "The South ParQ Vaccination Special", where he and several other 4th Graders are Brainwashed and Crazy by the QAnon tutors in order to stop the COVID-19 vaccinations from happening, forming their own group called "Lil' Qties", with Scott as their leader.
  • 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.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Scott becomes this towards Sophie in "Basic Cable", lashing out at any guy trying to talk to her.
  • A Day in the Limelight: He gets such an episode in Season 23 called "Basic Cable", where it focuses on him trying to impress a girl he likes by trying to get streaming services for his family.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He can be seen briefly at the arcade room in Jeffersons' house in the Season 8 episode "The Jeffersons".
  • Entitled to Have You: Scott starts thinking of Sophie this way, based solely on the fact that they both have diabetes, and that's the only thing about her that he cares about. When Scott lashes out on the boys for hogging on her attention, Sophie calls him out on this.
  • Grew a Spine: Scott manages to stand up for himself to the other boys who've made fun of him for having diabetes several times in "Basic Cable". During the climax, he gorges on pie from the Gray's kitchen to send himself into a diabetic rage in order to stand up to the other boys who want to win Sophie Gray's heart, just like himself.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: He has his eyes set out on the redheaded new girl, Sophie Gray.
  • Ill Boy: Always suffers from his diabetes to the point where he almost passes out from it in the "Black Friday" trilogy.
  • Love at First Sight: In "Basic Cable", he fell in love with the new girl in his class, Sophie Gray, who has diabetes just like himself.
  • 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. This is taken further in South Park: The Fractured but Whole, where he plays the role of Captain Diabetes, "the world's strongest diabetic superhero". Here, it is shown that Scott Malkinson is very heroic, going so far as to take Randy's keys to prevent him from driving while drunk, even when he chases him and the New Kid all the way to the Buca Da Faggocini on their first superhero mission. It helps that his character sheet states that his character alignment is "Lawful".
  • 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. He also gets possessive over Sophie in "Basic Cable" despite Sophie not showing any romantic interest in him.
  • Youthful Freckles: He sports these to further accentuate his Butt-Monkey status.

    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.

  • Characterization Marches On: In her debut episode, she was rather discreet, prone to apologizing regardless of whether she actually did anything wrong, and generally went out of her way not to upset others. As the seasons went on, she's become more assertive and isn't afraid to speak out against others. By Season 23, she's practically become a leader figure to the other girls.
  • 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.
  • Precision F-Strike: Swears for the first time in "Board Girls".
    Nichole: Okay, so then let's do it, bitch."
  • Token Minority: Is the only other black kid at South Park Elementary.
  • Token Minority Couple: Cartman's racist manipulation leads her and Token to enter a relationship.

    Heidi Turner
Heidi as of Season 20.note 
"Eric!, Hey, I got us chocolate milks!"

Voiced by: Jessica Makinson

A girl in the same class the four boys attend. She was Eric Cartman's girlfriend for a time. Originally just one of the minor female classmates and a part of Wendy and Bebe's group of friends, she became a much more prominent character in Seasons 20-21.

  • Ad Hominem: Employs this tactic constantly during her stint as Cartman's Distaff Counterpart. When Theresa briefly snipes at her, Heidi brings up her family's financial state to put her on the defensive; when Kyle attempts to implore the school to make peace, Heidi tells to him shut up and accuses him of "sounding like his mom"; when Kyle rejects his friends' offer to help him search for his missing brother, Heidi accuses him of simply being bitter over being rejected by her. This last one backfires on her, however, as Kyle turns the tables and disgustedly renounces the idea that he would ever feel any attraction for her, kick-starting her Jerkass Realization.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Subverted. Yes she does become Cartman's girlfriend, but only because he was actually very kind to her in Season 20. Thus, she did not like when he he became a Jerkass to her in Season 21 leading to her decision to dump Cartman in "Splatty Tomato".
  • Amicable Exes: Possibly with Kyle in Season 22. They don't seem to have got back together, but they are shown willing to sit near each other in the music room without showing any hostility during "The Problem With A Poo".
    • Averted with Cartman. After their break-up in "Splatty Tomato" Heidi seems to be avoiding him as much as possible, sitting far away from him during the music room and the school assembly in "The Problem With A Poo". Likewise, Cartman claims to have anxiety in “Buddha Box” because the he can't stand people anymore (including Heidi), insults her and the other girls in "Board Girls" for reading rule books to win at board games, and when Scott Malkinson brings up their relationship in "Basic Cable", Cartman compares it to diabetes times 10, possibly still holding Heidi in contempt for breaking up with him.
  • Arc Hero: Of the Cartman-Heidi relationship arc that dominated Seasons 20 and 21. She's the central character in that Story Arc and gets the most Character Development out of anyone there. Unsurprisingly, after the story arc ends she returns to her previous role as a background character.
  • Ascended Extra: Has been around ever since Season 3, but was mostly a background character. However, as the series progressed, she got a fair amount of prominence and speaking roles. In fact, she played a fairly big role in the Season 9 episode "Marjorine". Despite this, however, her personality and limelight had not been fully established until Season 20.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: In Season 20, she is shown to have invented an entire method of cryptographic analysis in order to uncover the identity of skankhunt42. Not bad for a ten-year-old. Taken Up to Eleven when dealing with the issues at SpaceX; she manages to create a source of energy that can power humanity's trip to Mars, and later saves the world from TrollTrace by having done so.
  • Bait-and-Switch: In "Skank Hunt", she looks suicidal when she's shown at the edge of a bridge, but she was really just quitting Twitter and throwing her phone into the river.
  • Became Their Own Antithesis: Contrast the kind, caring, naive, and healthy girl she once was before dating Cartman to the bitter, resentful, bigoted, and fat Jerkass she became while dating him. "Splatty Tomato" in particular points this out.
  • Brainy Brunette: She has brown hair, and is quite smart for someone her age, having found a way to travel to Mars and is been described by Mr. Mackey as the school’s best science student.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: She showed shades of this in Season 9's "Marjorine", in which she throws a fit over her mom inviting the "new girl" to her slumber party.
    Heidi: Mom, I didn't invite her!
  • Breakout Character: Originally just one of the more minor characters, becoming Cartman's girlfriend has made her extremely popular with the fanbase, promoting her status to a major character even obtaining a hat of her own.
  • Broken Bird: She becomes one by Season 21. She failed to stop Skankhunt42 last season, is frequently picked on by the other girls, and is stuck in an emotionally abusive relationship with Cartman. She tries to cope with all of this by becoming a female version of her boyfriend, only to realize how much she has changed from the Nice Girl she was before. Because of this she breaks up with Cartman for good.
  • Broken Hero: Despite getting viciously trolled, shunned by her friends, and mentally abused by Cartman, she still tries her see the best in everyone and goes out of her way to help those in need. That said, she does have her breaking point and becomes Cartman's Distaff Counterpart because of the constant all of the above.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: Was the Gentle Girl to Cartman's Brooding Boy.
  • Cameo: Appears briefly near the end of "Board Girls" which happens to be her only appearance in Season 23.
  • Character Development: Goes from a judgmental Alpha Bitch first shown in "Marjorine" to a humble Nice Girl after quitting Twitter and hooking up with Cartman. However, her self-esteem has also drastically decreased making her submissive to Cartman's abuse. This eventually causes her to adopt Cartman's personality making her nastier than she ever was before. However, she learns how much Cartman's influence changed her, which makes her come to her senses and give her the courage to stand up to Cartman, not cull to his demands, and break up with him for good.
  • Characterization Marches On:
    • Was shown to be an Alpha Bitch who picked on the "new girl"note  in "Marjorine" and ridiculed Lisa Berger for her insecurity in "The Hobbit", but as the show entered its 20th season she has been shown to be nicer.
    • She was shown with numerous different parents throughout the series. Even after her properly renamed introduction in "Marjorine" where her parents are revealed, she was still shown with different parents in "Cartoon Wars Part II", "La Petit Tourette", and "Medicinal Fried Chicken".
    • In "Follow That Egg!", she hates Cartman as much as everyone else, and is upset about being paired with him on the egg project.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Emoji Analysis lets her see meaningful patterns in absolutely anything, even things she does not understand (such as the engineering problems that need to be overcome in order to reach Mars), to the point of being able to correct the equations herself, by replacing what is to her meaningless data with something else, which lets her know that two lines in the equations are misaligned, and even lets her produce the season's Deus ex Machina.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Besides a hatless, Blink-and-miss cameo in "Board Girls" and a brief mention in "Basic Cable", she has been completely absent in Season 23, not even appearing in school assembly scenes and being completely absent when her parents are shown.
  • Classical Anti-Hero: While Heidi is a genuinely kind and thoughtful girl, she also has numerous flaws such as naivete, insecurity, and Pride that allowed her to be manipulated by a lot of people, like Cartman. In "Splatty Tomato" Heidi starts to overcome this upon realizing she can't rely on other people to make choices for her, and must learn to make her own decisions, leading to her choice to finally break up with Cartman.
  • Commuting on a Bus: After being a main character in Seasons 20 and 21, her role is greatly reduced afterwards where she might make a brief appearance in a few episodes while not appearing in others.
  • Coordinated Clothes: In Season 20, she was always shown wearing matching clothes when she was with her boyfriend Cartman.
  • The Corruptible: As of "Doubling Down", Cartman starts slowly turning her into a female version of himself, tricking her into eating unhealthy foods to make her fatter and convincing her that Kyle (and Jews in general) are terrible people (after Kyle nearly convinced her to leave Cartman). Thankfully she learns how listening to Cartman has negatively changed her health so she decides not to believe him anymore after breaking up with him.
  • The Cutie: As a shy, socially timid and naive girl, she definitely qualifies. Became downplayed after she became a Distaff Counterpart to her Fat Bastard boyfriend, eventually mustered up the courage to confront Cartman's toxic influence, breaking up with him, and gets Demoted to Extra in Season 22 (though she returns to her cute look).
  • A Day in the Limelight: "The Damned" gives her much more focus than almost every other episode in the series combined. In general, Seasons 20 and 21 is this for her; she contributes to those storylines and is important to half of the main cast, especially Cartman, her boyfriend. Not bad for somebody who was lucky to have anything resembling a role aside from being a minor character for 17 years.
  • Deconstructed Character Archetype: Of the Butt-Monkey trope. Heidi goes through numerous hardships throughout Seasons 20 and 21, which includes being cyber bullied by Skankhut42, getting emotionally abused by her boyfriend, and being picked on by her friends. Eventually she snaps and becomes Cartman's Distaff Counterpart deciding to get back at those who have mistreated her.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: While earlier episodes such as "Follow That Egg!" shown Heidi contemptuous of Cartman, when she becomes promoted to main cast starting in Season 20 and starts dating him, she treats him very kindly. By Season 21, Cartman got irritated by how overly affectionate Heidi is towards him and ends up turning her into a female version of him.
  • Demoted to Extra: From Season 22 onwards, Heidi returns to her old role as a background character.
  • Deuteragonist: Her relationship with Cartman in Season 20 and 21 is the focal point for both those seasons and her importance in them is second only to that of her boyfriend.
  • Distaff Counterpart: By Episode 8 of Season 21, she's essentially become a female Cartman, becoming obese and adopting all his prejudices, selfishness, and casual cruelty. This causes her Heel Realization and becomes one of the reasons why she broke up with Cartman in "Splatty Tomato".
  • The Dog Bites Back: Cartman is an asshole who brainwashed her into becoming his Distaff Counterpart. That said, he learns the hard way what the rest of the protagonists have to deal with, and it's obvious she becomes the one who wears the pants in their relationship.
  • Early Installment Character Design Difference: Used to have black hair, rather than light brown, and flip-flopped between the colors for a while.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: By Season 22 she’s out of an abusive relationship, has lost all the weight she gained last season and is a Nice Girl again. While she's returns to her old role as a background character, this is probably for the best given how much she suffered as a main character, especially as Cartman's girlfriend.
  • Evil Vegetarian: Not as first, but she still claims to be a vegan after her Took a Level in Jerkass. Subverted because Cartman tricked her into eating meat.
  • Fallen Heroine: Originally one of the kindest characters in South Park and one of the leading heroes in Season 20, by the next season Cartman's influence has turned her into his Distaff Counterpart turning all her kindness into complete jerkassery. She eventually realizes how far she has fallen, when Kyle declares he could never have any feelings for the person she has become.
  • Fat Bitch: Due to Cartman's influence, she becomes both obese and a terrible person by "Moss Piglets". this changes in "Splatty Tomato" and by "A Problem With A Poo" she's no longer fat.
  • Fatal Flaw: Heidi's response to her female friends mocking her for her interest in Cartman is to double down on staying committed to the relationship, even as it grows increasingly more toxic with Cartman gaslighting her.
  • Formerly Fat: By Season 22, she has lost all the fat she gained last season and is now healthy again.
  • Formerly Fit: She was healthy eating a vegan diet. However, Cartman tricked her into eating "Beyond" KFC and "Beyond" Arbys and she became nearly as fat as him. Inverted in Season 22 where she's skinny again.
  • Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: What Heidi learns at the end of "Splatty Tomato". Even though she suffered a mentally abusive relationship with Eric Cartman, it doesn't mean she can become a horrible person. She decides to end this problem once and for all by breaking up with Cartman for good.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: After becoming Cartman's Distaff Counterpart, her female friends begin to detest her for her cruel behavior, to the point that Wendy of all people ends up rooting for Cartman when the two have a fist fight.
  • The Friends Who Never Hang: After hooking up with Cartman, she all of the sudden stopped hanging out with the girls and is almost only shown with her boyfriend now. This is probably explanatory though, since she didn't want to get involved with the drama of the gender war that her friends was participating in, and instead wanted to put an end to it alongside Cartman (who felt the same way about said gender war). She returns to the girls after breaking up with Cartman in "Splatty Tomato".
  • Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: Heidi is one of the more girly girls, but she also partakes activities, like playing Call of Duty: World at War in the computer lab, watching Terrence and Phillip Netflix premier with the boys, and judging science fairs, which aren't considered to be feminine.
  • Grew a Spine: After dealing with Cartman's abuse throughout Season 21 and being converted into his Distaff Counterpart, Heidi finally grows her own in "Splatty Tomato" when she makes it clear that they are breaking up for good, even ignoring his suicide threats that originally kept her from leaving.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: Has a tendency to switch from a Nice Girl to a Jerkass. She had made her debut in "Rainforest Shmainforest" but wasn't given much characterization making her neutral on the moral spectrum. Then she was given her first major appearance in "Marjorine" where she shows herself to be quite an Alpha Bitch amongst her friends making her a Heel which lasted until "Skank Hunt" which gives her more prominence and becomes much nicer. Then after becoming Cartman's girlfriend and letting his influence turn her into his Distaff Counterpart she becomes a Heel once more in "Moss Piglets" which lasts until "Splatty Tomato" where she gets a Heel Realization and breaks up with Cartman for good making her a Face once more.
  • Heel Realization: After Kyle declares he can never love her current self in Season 21's finale, Heidi begins to look back on how she got to the point of being a female Cartman, realizing how he slowly destroyed her mentally and physically including attempts of murder. Heidi has enough and breaks up with Cartman for good, no longer wishing to be the victim.
  • His Own Worst Enemy: Ultimately, the main reason why Heidi becomes a female Cartman isn't actually Cartman but is instead her own Pride. She doesn't want to admit that she made a bad decision dating Cartman, and when her friends mocks her about that matter she chooses to go back to Cartman and believe his lies. She eventually realizes that it was her own fault that she deteriorated so much, both physically and mentally, and decides to make the logical decision to break up with Cartman for good.
  • Honor Before Reason: Kyle eventually realizes that the reason she won't break up with Cartman despite the horrible way he treats her is because she doesn't want to have to admit to the other girls that they were right and dating him was a bad idea. When she does, she gets frustrated when the girls go a little too far in teasing Heidi about dating Cartman, which causes her to go back to Cartman and buy his lies. Basically she would rather suffer in an abusive and manipulative relationship than swallow her pride and own up to her mistakes. Thankfully, she does realize how much this way of thinking has changed her, so she decides to finally own up to her mistakes by breaking up with Cartman for good.
  • Honor Thy Abuser: In "Doubling Down" Heidi decide to accept Cartman's abuse and begins to adopt his personality, which leads to her transformation into his Distaff Counterpart. Subverted in "Splatty Tomato" when she learns that its not okay to accept the abuse and adopting said abuser's personality, leading to her decision to dump her abuser.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Goes with the territory of being Cartman's girlfriend. Though to her credit, Cartman was a genuinely nice boyfriend in the beginning of their relationship. Something she actually points out shortly before breaking up with him for good.
  • Idiot Savant: Played With. She's certainly not an idiot, despite her seeming lack of social skills, but her skills in Emoji Analysis and String Theory make her a savant.
  • I Hate Past Me: Throughout "Splatty Tomato" Heidi constantly switches from fondly remembering her more naive and happier self to showing nothing but bitterness and contempt for her.
  • Informed Attribute: In-universe example. Her boyfriend Cartman was constantly telling her and everyone else how "smart and funny" she was in Season 20. While she is shown to be quite smart, she never really says or does anything funny, which she and other characters pointed out.
  • Informed Deformity: Wendy says that she has a flat butt in "The Hobbit", but much like the rest of the people she insulted, that feature doesn't seem to apply to her and hasn't been looked into any further.
  • Innocent Bigot: Thanks to Cartman, who manages to brainwash her into sharing his anti-Semitism. She still acts sweet and polite to Kyle as she breaks up with him, but he immediately realizes she essentially called him a "dirty Jew." She drops the innocent part by the next episode.
  • It Sucks to Be the Chosen One: Once Cartman convinces everyone that she's their only hope to get to Mars in "Not Funny", she pretty clearly knows that she's been forced into something far beyond her own abilities.
  • Jerkass Realization: In Season 21's finale, Heidi realizes how horrible she has become thanks to Cartman's influence on her in the aforementioned season.
  • Knight of Cerebus: She serves as a non-villainous example. note . Seasons 20 and 21 were definitely less humorous and more story driven and dramatic due to Heidi's importance in them, with her abuse at the hands of Cartman being played dead seriously for the most part, showing the negative effects it had on her mental and physical health. Episodes where she's Out of Focus or doesn't appear in tend to be much more humorous.
  • Lesser of Two Evils: While initially presented as "worse" than Cartman, she is in truth not as evil as him. While she did inherit Cartman's obesity, bigotry, and Jerkass tendencies, she does get a Heel Realization and breaks up with Cartman before he could further corrupt her into inheriting his more twisted traits such as his sadism and sociopathy.
  • Living Prop: Though not completely silent, Heidi was mostly a background character prior to Season 20. She returns to being this after season 21.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: She usually hangs out with the popular girls and has shown to pick on girls less popular than her like Marjorinenote  and Lisa Burger. That said she isn't completely heartless as she did apologize to the former for her behavior, she shows a more kinder and vulnerable side of her personality after quitting twitter and becoming a social outcast.
  • Love Martyr: During Season 21, she continually puts up with Cartman's mistreatment of her and refuses to break up with him, even allowing him to transform her into his Distaff Counterpart. She finally ends their relationship for good in "Splatty Tomato".
  • Loving a Shadow: What her feelings for Cartman amounts to. She hooks up with Cartman just because they were both were social outcasts and felt it was better to be victims than face reality. It gets to the point where they both Took a Level in Jerkass in Season 21 because of how much they enjoyed Playing the Victim Card. When Heidi goes back to all the landmarks that brought her and Cartman together in "Splatty Tomato" she realizes that she doesn't truly love Cartman, but liked that he gave her a reason to engage in self-victimization. Because of this she breaks up with Cartman, no longer wanting to be the victim.
  • Meaningful Name: Her last name "Turner" signifies how her appearance, personality, and importance in the show keeps on changing. Her first appearance has her be a background character with black hair and no personality before "turning" her into a brunette with an Alpha Bitch personality in "Majorine", though still seldom used. Then she gets promoted to a main character during Seasons 20 and 21 "turning" into a Nice Girl with a Nice Hat before her boyfriend's influence "turns" her into a Fat Jerkass like him. After breaking up with Cartman and by Season 22 she "turns" back to her old self and is once again a background character, though she still wears her hat. Then she loses her hat in Season 23.
  • Must Make Amends: Possibly with her girlfriends and Kyle in Season 22. While they aren't seen conversing, given that she's setting near them in the music room and school assembly respectively in "The Problem With A Poo" suggests that she's trying to make amends for mistreating them last season.
  • Nice Hat: Gets a stripped one with a flower on it in "Skank Hunt". She even keeps it after being Demoted to Extra.
  • Nice Girl: Going hand-in-hand with her constant attempts to help people on a large scale, there doesn't seem to be a single person Heidi dislikes. Even Cartman. Especially Cartman. Unfortunately by "Moss Piglets", she has changed, until she has a Heel Realization and breaks up with Cartman.
  • Not Afraid of You Anymore: In contrast to previously taking Cartman back when threatens to kill himself in "Put It Down", she firmly states thats not going to work and leaves when Cartman pull this stunt again in "Splatty Tomato" making it clear to him that this time they are breaking up for good.
  • Not So Similar: Despite becomes like Cartman, "Splatty Tomato" shows that Heidi has one important difference. Unlike Cartman, Heidi would learn would to take responsibility for her own actions after showing remorse, making positive changes that would allow her to change back to her healthy Nice Girl self by "The Problem With a Poo" onwards.
  • Odd Friendship: Develops one with Cartman after they both go off Twitter, which eventually evolves into a relationship.
  • Official Couple: With Eric Cartman, of all people. However the relationship ends in “Splatty Tomato” when she breaks up with Cartman for good.
  • Out of Focus: After breaking up with Cartman, Heidi focus in the show has been significantly reduce to about a handful of cameos. She only appears in two episodes during Season 22 and is only mentioned and appears once in Season 23.
  • Pet the Dog: She is seen celebrating the girl's victory over Heather in "Board Girls", a noticeable contrast to how Heidi previously mistreated them in "Moss Piglets"
  • Ping-Pong Naïveté: Is smart enough to figure out how to uncover anybody's identity online, and create the energy source required to go to Mars, but doesn't know that showing her private parts to a boy she barely knows is inappropriate behavior. These events happen in the same season.
  • Pink Means Feminine: She wears a pink hat and played the Alpha Bitch role in her earlier appearances, and then The Cutie role when she became an Ascended Extra in Season 20, both of which are typically associated with female characters. She even has a pink bike.
  • Plucky Girl: Despite all the hardships she endured in Seasons 20 and 21, that didn't stop her from reverting back to her old personality, loosing the fat she gained, and getting rid of all the Cartman attributes by Season 22. The fact that she's riding a very girly bike in "Bike Parade" as if nothing bad happened to her and happily cheering for her friends in "Board Girls" cements her as this.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: She starts spewing ableist and classist rhetoric in "Moss Piglets".
  • Pride: The reason why she doesn't want to break up with Cartman, even if she knows he's a bad influence for her. Eventually she learns to forgo her pride upon realizing how much it cost her, both physically and mentally, and breaks up with Cartman.
  • Protagonist Journey to Villain: Season 21 gives the most focus to her deteriorating relationship with Cartman and how it transformed her from a Nice Girl to her boyfriend's Distaff Counterpart. Subverted when she gets a Heel Realization and breaks up with Cartman.
  • Reformed Bully: She was originally an Alpha Bitch who would pick on girls less popular then her, but Season 20 made her a lot more nicer while not showing any signs of her meanness. She does return to her bullying ways after becoming Eric Cartman's Distaff Counterpart, but would break up with him when she realizes he's a bad influence for her and rid herself of any Cartman-like traits by Season 22, making her this trope once more.
  • Reformed, but Rejected: Even though she's back to her old self by Season 22, her girlfriends don't seemed to have forgiven her for her mistreatment of them when she was a female Cartman (even though it was their mistreatment of her for dating Cartman is why she acted that way) and are trying to avoid her. This include having one of their acquaintances sit next to her in the school assembly serving as a barrier between her and her quad-let (Wendy, Isla, and Theresa) during "The Problem With A Poo" and not sitting with her during lunch in "The Scoots" and "Let Them Eat Goo". This seems to be subverted in "Board Girls" as the girls allow her to join the Board Girls Club and let her celebrate Nicole and Tammy's victory with them
  • Rise of Zitboy: After gaining weight, she developed two pimples on her face, probably caused by all of the grease in the KFC Cartman has been feeding her. Though she looses the zits along with her weight gain by "A Problem With a Poo"
  • Satellite Love Interest: Upon becoming an Ascended Extra during Season 20 and 21, her whole character stems on being Eric Cartman's girlfriend and how her relationship has affect him and herself. After breaking up with Cartman in for the final time in "Splatty Tomato she reverts back to her background character role.
  • Shadow Archetype:
    • To Wendy Testabuger. Both are Brainy Brunettes, had feelings for Eric Cartman, and are the only known female students to wear hats. However, Heidi lacks Wendy's strong will and thus never learned to resolve her feelings for Cartman on her own like Wendy did. As a result, while Wendy was able to keep her positive attributes, lose all her feelings for Cartman, and retain her self-identity, Heidi loses all her attributes and stayed in a romantic relationship with Cartman long enough for his toxic influence to turn her into a female version of himself. Though Heidi does break-up with Cartman, possibly losing all her feelings for him in the process, and was able to reclaim all her attributes by Season 22.
    • She's also one for Butters Stotch. Both are kind and innocent children, whose naivete are constantly exploited by Cartman and are among the few kids to call him Eric. However, Butters knows better than to stoop to Cartman's level, and remains his kind and innocent self. Heidi doesn't, and ends up becoming a Distaff Counterpart to Cartman. Though Heidi does learn like Butters and returns to her old self after breaking up with Cartman.
    • She's also one to a female New Kid, in regards to their contrasting relationships with Cartman. While Heidi's relationship with him is romantic, the New Kid has more of a teacher/student bond with him. Heidi came to Cartman and the two bonded over falling off the social media grid while Cartman went out of his way to be nice to the New Kid and thus earned her loyalty. While Heidi broke up with Cartman after realizing what his influence turned her into, The New Kid had no problems with anything Cartman was having her do, until Cartman betrayed her and kidnapped her parents, causing her to lose all respect for him. While Heidi seems to be actively avoiding Cartman after breaking up with him, The New Kid seems to have forgiven Cartman, willing to hang out with him afterwards.
    • Heidi herself would receive a Shadow Archetype in Mr. Hankey. See here for more details about that.
  • She's Back: By Season 22, she's back to being a healthy nice background character.
  • The Smurfette Principle: She is the only female character to ever appear in a DVD box cover.
  • Sour Outside, Sad Inside: Sure she's become the Gender Flipped version of her boyfriend Cartman by "Moss Piglets", but that's because she doesn't want to be constantly abused emotionally by her peers and Cartman, even if it means abusing them herself. This is more explored in "Splatty Tomato" where despite acting horrible, she's just so broken.
  • Stepford Smiler: She may be all bubbly and happy for most of Season 20, but in "Douche and a Danish" she breaks down crying after her plan to help Denmark turns out to be for nothing, suggesting that she doesn't have very good self-esteem.
  • Sudden Name Change: Was originally identified as "Marcy" in "Probably", but was later properly renamed Heidi in "Marjorine".
  • Temporarily a Villain: Her time as a female Cartman, which started in "Moss Piglets" and lasted until "Splatty Tomato".
  • Then Let Me Be Evil: After being picked on by her friends for going out with Cartman, she decides to let him manipulate her and become his Distaff Counterpart. She snaps out of it in "Splatty Tomato".
  • Took a Level in Badass: As of "Splatty Tomato" she has abandoned the victim-mindset and no longer has any problems dumping Cartman.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Prior to Season 20, she could be unkind to the point of cruelty. After Season 20, however, she's arguably one of the nicest of the 4th grade girls. She loses a level again in Season 21 after adopting Cartman's personality, but regains it after dumping him.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: By "Moss Piglets" in Season 21, she has become a female version of Cartman. However, it serves more as a defense mechanism to endure all the emotional stress given to her rather than becoming genuinely malicious. When she realizes that she took it too far, she decides to resolve this issue by breaking up with Cartman.
  • Troubled Abuser: After being abused by Cartman for the majority of Season 21, she starts adopting his personality and began abusing him.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: When she gave her "Emoji Analysis" to Lennart Bedrager, she didn't know that he'd use it to cause mass hysteria and a world war.
  • What Have I Become?: After hearing Kyle's Armor-Piercing Response in "Splatty Tomato", she becomes disgusted with herself for becoming Cartman's Distaff Counterpart. At first, she blames Cartman and prepares to kill him for, in her own words, "turning me into this!" However, she soon realizes that it was her "I'm a victim" attitude that resulted in her deteriorated state.
  • Weak-Willed: Her biggest flaw aside from her Pride. She is so insecure of what she that it was very easy for Cartman to convince her into becoming his Distaff Counterpart. Her Character Development involves her becoming more confident in herself leading to her choice to break up with Cartman, thus removing this aspect from her personality.
  • "You!" Exclamation: She gives this to Cartman near the end of "Splatty Tomato".
  • You Killed My Father: Averted. Her father is killed in "Probably" because of Cartman's negligence, but, as shown in Season 20, she doesn't seem to hold it against him, or even remember it. She is shown with different, living, parents in other episodes. Either her mother remarried, or the writers just reused Heidi's character model for generic girls early on.

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

  • 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.

Out-of-universe, some fans even mistakenly believe that she and Red are the same person.

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

Voiced by: Trey Parker

  • The Ace: There doesn't appear to be anything he's bad at. Despite hating musical theater 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. Though, a cut sidequest in The Stick of Truth has him telling the New Kid to give Annie a letter from him, saying that he has a thing for her and he cannot get her out of his mind.
  • Broken Ace: Despite his ace qualities, he has an abusive father to deal with.
  • The Casanova: 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.

  • 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".

    Jason White
Voiced by: Trey Parker
Final Appearance: "Season Finale"

A Living Prop who resembles actor Jason McHugh, who starred in Cannibal! The Musical and Orgazmo, both created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

  • Angry White Man: Downplayed. We never really get to see much of this side of him, but he is part of a family of them.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: He's randomly run over by a police cruiser in "Season Finale". While he was a Living Prop, he still was around since the beginning of the show and his death is very abrupt and out of nowhere.
  • Killed Off for Real: Gets run over by a police cruiser while playing football with the rest of the kids.
  • Living Prop: Despite getting a few lines here and there, he had very little characterization and usually only appeared in the background. The only thing he does of note is indirectly cause the creation of Mexican Joker with his death.
  • Look Both Ways: How he ends up biting it, walking across the street to retrieve a ball and getting hit by a car.
  • Mauve Shirt: He would get a few lines once in a while and was around from the first episode, but he had very little characterization and any role he played could have been played by any of the other kids.
  • Sixth Ranger: He was seen with Craig's group in "South Park Is Gay", but stopped appearing with them after that.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Despite being a Living Prop, his death causes the creation of Mexican Joker.

    Gordon Stolski

Debut: "Ginger Kids"
Final appearance: "Dances With Smurfs"

A third-grader and ginger kid who runs the morning announcements.

  • Butt-Monkey: All of his appearances saw him get the short end of the stick.
  • Killed Off for Real: He gets shot by a man who had somehow mistaken him for the man who had an affair with his wife, despite the said man being 40 years old and a trucker.
  • Mauve Shirt: He didn’t get much characterization outside of being a ginger.
  • Only Sane Man: The only ginger kid to point out that Cartman only ended his campaign against non-gingers in "Ginger Kids" after finding out he wasn’t ginger.

    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.

  • Demoted to Extra: He becomes a Living Prop in some episodes after Season 19 and doesn't even have any lines as well.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He makes his debut in "The Last of the Meheecans" as a Mexican child trying to break a Mantequilla pinata. He also had a non-speaking cameo as a Syrian refugee child during Kyle's speech at the end of "Stunning and Brave".
  • Flat Character: At least so far.
  • It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": His name is pronounced Da-VEED, not that Cartman cares.
  • Living Prop: He only makes background appearances in some episodes after Season 19, as stated in Demoted to Extra.
  • 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: During season 19, he hung out 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.

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.
  • 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."
  • Mistaken for Gay: Cartman and Kyle keep referring to him as Stan's boyfriend, though presumably more as teasing than anything.
  • Nice Guy: He's such a friendly dude, he's impossible to bully, and it almost intimidates the other children.
  • One-Shot Character: Only appeared in "All About Mormons".
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: One of the most awesome moments in the episode. After Stan criticised his family and Mormon religion. Gary gives Stan a powerful speech next morning at the end of the episode how exactly he feels and points out his flaws, it ends with all of them speechless and Cartman praising him.
    Gary: Look, maybe us Mormons believe in crazy stories that makes absolutely no sense, and maybe Joseph Smith did make it all up. But I have a great life and a great family, and I have the Book of Mormon to thank for that. The truth is, I don't care if Joseph Smith made it all up because what the church teaches now is loving your family, being nice, and helping people. And even though people in this town might think that's stupid, I still choose to believe in it. All I ever did was to try and be your friend, Stan, but you're so high and mighty you couldn't look past my religion and just be my friend back. You've got a lot of growing up to do, buddy. Suck my balls.

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: He constantly hates God, who he calls the "biggest bitch of them all." 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 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. However, Gregory doesn't play any deliberately antagonistic role in the movie, as he actually helps the kids form the La Résistance organization to prevent Terrence and Philip's execution.
  • 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 bags 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: Deconstructed. His Tourette's Syndrome manifests with him swearing randomly, which the other kids (especially Cartman, who begins mimicking the condition as an excuse to swear, and Craig) find cool. However, Thomas finds this embarrassing and it causes him and his family much mental distress. The episode also features other characters with Tourette's who have tics other than swearing.
  • 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.)
  • Only One Name: His last name was never given in "Le Petite Tourette".
  • Only Sane Man: He's the only one besides Kyle to realize that Cartman's faking his Tourette's and is worried that Cartman's actions will encourage others to start faking it to get away with saying horrible things.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Often swears uncontrollably due to his Tourette's.

    Mark and Rebecca Cotswolds 
Voiced by: Trey Parker (Mark) and Mary Kay Bergman (Rebecca)

Two homeschooled children who develop an interest in attending real elementary school after meeting the other South Park kids.

  • Beware the Nice Ones: Despite spending most of the episode getting pushed around, Mark proves he has some bite by beating up Kyle for supposedly corrupting his sister.
  • Bubble Boy: The first time Mark arrives to elementary school, he goes in a giant hamster ball.
  • Character Tics: Rebecca bites her lips and clasps her hands together in most of her scenes. When she spells, she whispers the letters into her hand first.
  • Child Prodigy: Both of them are incredibly smart, spelling complicated words at the spelling bee without a care. Rebecca is also able to replicate brain surgery despite being only eight.
  • Corrupt the Cutie: After kissing Kyle, Rebecca goes from a sweet nerdy girl to a promiscuous "whore" who flirts with every boy at the dance.
  • Ditzy Genius: Both of them are among the most academically brilliant students in South Park, but seriously lack social skills and are thus very naive.
  • Homeschooled Kids: Their defining character trait. As a result, they're quite brilliant, but lack the basic social skills necessary to get through life.
  • Literal-Minded: When Kyle asks Rebecca to go to the dance, she thinks he's just asking her to go by herself, not go as a date.
    Kyle: Rebecca, there's this dance, see, the South Park Elementary Bay Of Pigs Memorial Dance, and uh, now I was wondering if you wanna go.
    Rebecca: Hhm. Alright, I guess I'll go.
    Kyle: You will?
    Rebecca: I guess. Are you gonna go? Maybe I'll see you there.
    Kyle: No no. I mean, go with me.
    Rebecca: Oh, I'm sure Father will give me a ride. [walks away]
  • My Girl Is Not a Slut: Despite being attracted to her for most of the episode, Kyle is horrified to see Rebecca turn promiscuous after their dance.
  • No Social Skills: They both frequently miss social cues when interacting with other children. Mark doesn't understand why friends would be mean to each other or recognize when he's being bullied, and Rebecca doesn't understand when Kyle flirts with her.
  • Oblivious to Love: Rebecca doesn't recognize Kyle's attempts to flirt with her for most of the episode. Justified in that she doesn't understand the idea of love.
  • One-Shot Character: Downplayed with Mark, who only had a major appearance in this episode, but appears in crowd shots in later seasons. Rebecca, however, never appeared after this episode in any capacity.
  • What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: When Kyle brings up the subject of love, Rebecca has no idea what it is. Her closest understanding of romance is the expectancy that her "provider" will select a "mate" for her to "increase the herd."

"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!"

Voiced by: Mickey Ramos
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.

  • Fangirl: Is one of The Jonas Brothers, and so she has Kenny wear a purity ring once they start to promote them.
  • Good Bad Girl: Yes, she gave both Kenny and another boy blowjobs, 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 to another kid before dating Kenny, and therefore asks him to wear a purity ring after the Jonas Brothers concert, only to change her mind later, before Kenny dies of syphilis.
  • 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.

    Sophie Gray 

Voiced by: Becca Scott
Debut: "Basic Cable"

A new girl from Scottsdale. She has diabetes and likes The Mandalorian. Due to her having diabetes, she instantly becomes the target of Scott Malkinson's affections.

  • Dude Magnet: Her interest in all things Star Wars-related (barring the latest trilogy), causes every boy in school to try and court her, much to Scott's chagrin. She even manages to start a rivalry between the otherwise tightly-knit goth kids.
  • Fangirl: One of the first things she mentions when introducing herself is her love for Star Wars, especially The Mandalorian, which she tries to watch with Scott.
  • Nice Girl: Despite not having any interest in any of the boys, she does eventually warm up to Scott over their diabetes.
  • Satellite Love Interest: Inverted. She tells Scott that there's more to her than her diabetes, to which he can only weakly respond that his entire character is nothing but diabetes.
    Sophie: Scott, I'm more than just my diabetes.
    Scott: (Sadly) ...Well, I'm not. (beat) ...I'm Scott Malkinson.
