- Or, Cartman will actually succeed in wiping all non-whites, gingers, and hippies off the planet, but soon finds himself very, very bored because he has nobody to insult. So he commits suicide out of despair.
- Stan - Blue. In A Very Crappy Christmas, Kyle criticizes Butters's paper cutout of Stan having the wrong eye color.
- Kyle - Green. It's actually a fact that most red-heads really do have green or green-shaded eyes.
- Cartman - Brown. He has Brown hair, and most dark or brown-haired children have brown eyes.
- Kenny - Light blue. It goes with medium-blond hair.
- Butters - Sky blue. The colour of innocence.
- Craig - Dark blue. In Craig x Tweek almost all of the Yaoi shows him with dark blue eyes. Possibly dull green instead if the animated yaoi special move in the recent game is taken as canon.
- Tweek - Green indicates more activity. Much of the Craig x Tweek art shows him with green eyes. Possibly turquois instead if the animated yaoi special move in the recent game is taken as canon.
- Token - Brown.
- Jimmy - Brown.
- Timmy - Hazel.
- Garrison apparently won on his own, but her actions in tandem with the Memberberries brainwashed him into accepting his position
- Additionally, it could also be because he constantly has a dirty mouth around her; in his own episode ("Butters' Very Own Episode"), he mentions that his grandma once washed his mouth out with soap for saying "nut sack" in front of her.
- Jossed. Eric Cartman's father is Jack Tenorman.
- This would explain why after long illnesses, such as when he had muscular dystrophy, it took him an entire season before he was able to come back. Also, in Ring when he died of syphilis he was gone long enough for them to have a funeral, rather than him just being reborn the next day. Whereas with fast violent deaths he generally seems to come back much faster, as shown many times, but notably in the Coon saga, where he had multiple returns over the course of the story arc.
- Also, his death in the movie was fairly prolonged, and he stayed dead for most of the movie.
- Stan started as Green/Black, with switching to Blue/Black (or pure Black) lately because of the emphasis on his resistance to fads and cults, which kinda highlights his intelligence and individuality.
- Kyle is White/Red, with either colour being more prominent depending on how the episode plays.
- Cartman is White/Black, because he is a selfish bastard with Knight Templar tendencies.
- Alternative option is Blue/Black/Red because of his temper and sadistic tendencies and he has a tendency to use everyone around him as a pawn to achieve his selfish desires. This color combo is better given his motivations.
- Kenny is Red/Black.
- Butters is Green/White.
- Mrs/Mr Garrison switches between Blue/Red and White/Green depending on whereas his bigoted point of view or his sexual depravity are focused on.
- Randy Marsh was originally Blue, then became Red/Green in latter seasons. It is implied that his mindless state is a facade, however, which means he probably only does that to have fun, so he is probably still Blue.
- Sheila Broflovski is like her son, only that in earlier seasons both Red and White were well emphasized thanks to her near constant state of zealotry.
- Kyle has managed to attract more girls than the others. Stan got Wendy, but it was him that approached her. Cartman had two girls to be attracted to him, Heidi and Wendy, though the latter was only attracted to because of Foe Yay. Kenny got two girls to like him, but Kyle has had Bebe, Nichole, Rebecca, and Heidi all wanting a piece of him.
- Bebe wrote a poem about Kyle's fine ass.
- Cartman refers to Kyle as "handsome" in "Fat Butt and Pancake Head" and calls him "fresh and beautiful" in German in "Funnybot".
- Kyle's place as the least cute on The List was a lie, and according to these calculations http://southpark.wikia.com/wiki/Forum:The_'Real_List' Kyle was somewhere in the Top 5 of the real list - either #5 or #1.
- Kyle has been mistaken for attractive celebrities more than once - for Leonardo diCaprio in "Chef's Salty Chocolate Balls" and for Britney Spears in "Britney's New Look." The second time was a disguise, but the first was just Kyle.
- Stan: True Neutral -> Chaotic Neutral.
- He's the everyman who really doesn't feel too strongly about most things going on around him. He plays a mostly observational role and isn't inclined to react to the situations around him. He's just not really driven by a whole lot and while he has a conscience, he doesn't share Kyle's self righteous morality or always condemn Cartman's latest scheme. This is of course out the window the moment animals become involved in which he ends up a very fierce Chaotic Neutral.
- Cartman: Neutral Evil with Lawful Tendencies
- Driven on accomplishing whatever whim he desires at a given moment. He's hardly above breaking the law and playing everyone off as his pawns, but he's a Manipulative Bastard who is willing to use and exploit the letter of the law to his benefit. That's only when it is convenient.
- Kenny: Chaotic Neutral with a Chaotic Good alterego.
- He's The Hedonist with a near obsession with tits and drugs as reflected in his much cruder language. While less common in much more recent seasons, he's the most likely of the main boys to side with Cartman.
- Kyle: Corruptible Neutral Good
- He has possibly the strongest morals of any of the boys and can be pretty damn self righteous about it. He does question rules, laws and traditions when they conflict with his own internal logic but otherwise is much less prone to rule breaking than his friends. Just as prone as the other boys though when a get rich quick scheme opportunity arises and his efforts to thwart anything Cartman does is bordering on He Who Fights Monsters territory.
- Butters: Naive Lawful Good
- Makes a great show of following the rules, mostly out of fear, but is just about always pure in his intentions. Even his attempt at making an evil alter ego isn't even particularly Chaotic. Of course, this often can go the Stupid Good route when Butters is inadvertently led along by Cartman and gets caught up in schemes.
- Randy: Chaotic Neutral veering toward Chaotic Stupid. Who are we kidding- he went that route long ago to the point of somewhat breaking the base.
- Heavy on the chaos and entirely oblivious of it.
- Ike: Chaotic Neutral
- Thinks his entire town consists of morons (not that he's wrong) excepting perhaps his brother. Thinks middle class life is monotonous, leading to such things as aiding a diamond heist and hightailing it to Somalia to engage in some good olf fashioned piracy. Oh, he's also lost his virginity and dropped acid before reaching '4'.
- Sheila: Knight Templar version of Lawful Good
- Craig: True Neutral
- Of the I don't give a fuck category. While he gets in trouble plenty, he actually values his nice bring and normal life and doesn't like to get mixed in with others' bull. This is particularly true for the protagonists and their tendency to be a Weirdness Magnet within their town.
- Wendy: Lawful Neutral
- Usually has good intentions and a champion for typical liberal 'good' causes, but a pretty massive jealous and petty streak. She's not above underhanded methods, particularly when she can take Cartman down a peg or two.
- Azathoth is mindless, though, which contradicts with Cartman, who's more Book Dumb than anything. Another possibility is that his father was being used as a vessel for Azathoth, making Cartman his spawn.
- Making him and Kenny cousins (possibly explaining how he knows about his deaths "what Kenny but he dies all the time".
- His psychic powers peaked in the later seasons, which means that Mr. Slave is in fact a physical manifestation of Mr. Garrison's deep subconscious. This would also explain Mr. Garrison's decision to be a woman. Now that his inner desires had separated from him, he no longer felt like himself and decided to have a sex change.
- Of course, this didn't last. Mrs. Garrison quickly became a lesbian. And sometime off-screen, she may have created a lesbian version of Mr. Slave only to dump her and decide to become a man again.
- Upon realizing he is still a he inside, and confronted with this reality, Garrison reverts to being a male.
- The real reason why Mr. Hat disappeared after Mr. Garrison hired Mr. Slave is because Mr. Hat actually morphed into Mr. Slave as a result of Mr. Garrison's initial decision to open up as being camp gay.
- They obviously put a life insurance policy on their son for a huge amount of money, he dies, they're the beneficiary, he comes back, rinse, repeat.
- That's probably why their house is so gritty but Kenny is spoiled like any other average kids.
- And the fact they have frickin' robot guards.
- And the fact that Kenny was a robot for Halloween once.
- To an extent, they could be. We are shown Mr. McCormick is not the best provider for his family. Kenny's death with the insurance would help the family, but being a dysfunctional one, they cannot manage it. While Kenny is allowed some luxuries such as a computer for WoW, some cool Halloween costumes and a PSP, ultimately, his situation is still not pleasant.
- The problem with this elaboration is that no one remembers that Kenny dies, so how can they receive the benefits on someone who as far as anyone knows, never died? A better explanation for their income would be from their meth production, and their poverty is because Kenny's parents are irresponsible substance abusers who blow whatever money they have on alcohol and drugs, occasionally letting it trickle down into Kenny's various luxuries.
- In the episode Cartmanland, Cartman gets a fine over Kenny dying in his theme park, to which he says "Kenny dies all the time!" This highly suggests that people remember Kenny's deaths (or at least, Cartman does). And, since he had to pay a fine over Kenny dying, Kenny's deaths do seem to legally count as normal deaths. If someone can be fined over a Kenny death, why can't they get life insurance for it?
- Where would they get money to afford life insurance in the first place, though?
- If all those deaths are recognized then it would be a literal Death Is Cheap scenario and if I am the insurance company in concern I would refuse to pay up or even accept their installment after a few episodes.
- Well, they are the most well-off of the four boys' families. And if Kyle's dad still has half the money from the school lawsuit episode...
- No, according to the Indian casino episode, Mr. Broslovski has a compulsive gambling problem. Although Cartman wouldn't let that interfere with his fervent embrace of every anti-Semitic stereotype.
- It's been played back and forth quite a bit with general tendency toward them being upper-middle class. Mrs. Broflovski likely wears the pants in the house and manages to shove enough money aside to keep Gerald from ruining them.
- Kyle's dad being an Otherkin—who fulfills his dream of becoming like Flipper—might have diverted him from the "fast track" at the office.
- No, according to the Indian casino episode, Mr. Broslovski has a compulsive gambling problem. Although Cartman wouldn't let that interfere with his fervent embrace of every anti-Semitic stereotype.
- Well of course Cartman thinks Kyle's family is rich, they're Jewish after all and we know what Eric thinks of Jews.
- Two words: Jew gold. In the episode "Two days before the day after tomorrow", Cartman thinks that all Jews have Jew gold and tries to rob Kyle of his. Kyle does, in fact, have Jew gold. If all Jews in south park don't have Jew Gold, it's at least safe to say that Cartman thiks they do.
- Except, Cartman is a lot smarter than Peter.
- Yeah, Cartman isn't stupid so much as intellectually lazy. Not to mention Peter Griffin actually respects Jews.
- You obviously did not see the episode "Family Goy". Lois discovers she is half-Jewish, and in keeping with what he believes his uber-Catholic father would want, attempts to murder her.
- Yeah, but at first he embraces Judaism even more so than Lois until the ghost of his father confronts him.
- Yeah, Cartman isn't stupid so much as intellectually lazy. Not to mention Peter Griffin actually respects Jews.
- Plus, Peter is said to have had a hippie-like lifestyle sometime in the past. No way Cartman would do that, especially since the timeline doesn't exactly allow for Cartman to have been born when and where Peter was and especially not to Mickey and Thelma instead of Jack and Liane. Also, the kids in South Park will always be kids, except when it would be funny for them not to be. Lastly, how the fuck does that even begin to work when Family Guy already exists as a TV show in the South Park universe, and Cartman blatantly loathes it?
- Kenny's father was the Spy. He even gave his son his very own dead ringer.
- That must have been one hell of a fall he took to end up where he would be now.
- Alternatively, Kenny has a different mercenary father, explaining some of his personality and his reincarnations. Plus, I'm sure that Kenny's work as Mysterion can easily take a turn into Rule of Cool.
- Also, Butters is the Avatar of the Trinity and God of Imaginationland. Other than O-Haruhi-Sama's Reality Warping, he is a Butt-Monkey like Shinji (and by extension, The God-Emperor of Mankind is Professor Chaos), and he has a TARDIS in the form of AWESOME-O.
- Funny you should say that. When I was around 4 and didn't understand that SP wasn't for kids, he actually did think that the kids were Charlie Brown characters.
- Schroeder appears in "A Very Crappy Christmas", "Probably", and "Something You Can Do With Your Finger".
- South Park has been called Peanuts on acid.
- In "The F Word", the gays of South Park have a meeting, and Garrison isn't present, so it's likely that he is still attracted to women, despite being a man again.
- Chef once said, "There's a big difference between being gay, and being Mr Garrison."
- It has been stated that Garrison is messed up. His sexuality seems to be connected to a bigger problem though.
- He sang "Poker Face" in the whale episode and he called Kyle "his Little Monster" in "It's a Jersey Thing". Lady Gaga calls her fans her "Little Monsters".
- Cartman IS Lady Gaga. (Well, this is WMG.)
- Cartman get's the nickname "Mort", a corruption of his last name - and he once again has to wear glasses. Mark is Kyle's middle name, and their enemity didn't end as they grew older. Stan just let his hair grow. Dave is a nickname he started using after he started to develop as a computer expert (based on Dave from 2001). Kenny, unfortunately, didn't live, forcing the four to find a substitute fourth kid - Clyde.
How did this start? I believe Pip gave us the warning way back in 'Damien.' Cartman was being made fun of until Pip arrived and all the kids moved their aggression to Pip. For an adult, being made fun of would be a ridiculous excuse. For an 8 year old with his mental problems, this is a motive worthy of murder. So, Cartman decided he was going to kill everyone in South Park, but he needed a cover so no one would take him seriously. Cue an episode of All in the Family where he saw Archie Bunker. That's when he discovered the perfect disguise, anger, rage, racism, chauvenism, all out in the open. It's brilliant.
The last season will be a time skip to the boys 18th birthday. South Park will be completely destroyed, everyone will be dead, except for Stan Marsh and Kyle Broflovski. They'll have to face down and defeat their old "friend." And give Kyle proper revenge for all the anti-semetic comments.
- What about Kenny? He's well, chronicly unable to die.
- Well, his mom is quite the whore, so perhaps she wants to maintain her figure or rather that is how she maintains her figure.
- If Kenny can pick and choose when he resurrects, then why does he get angsty about it in the Coon and Friends arc?
- Heck, going by this, South Park isn't so bad. Butters just imagines all these bad things happening to him to make himself a Woobie, and his overactive imagination is stimulated by whatever's on the news at the time.
- Even before we started seeing him as a regular main character, as early as "Super Best Friends", he mentions that he wakes up most mornings screaming. And in a tone that is almost cynical for an innocent guy like Butters.Butters: I don't think I'm very happy. I always fall asleep to the sound of my own screams.Magic Workshop Leader: ...Right, yeah. Eh, see, the reason that you are unha-Butters: (coldly) And then I always get woken up in the morning by the sounds of my own screams. Do you think I'm unhappy?
- Remember he mentions being sexually abused, and also how he subconsciously sees his father as some kind of monster.
- Don't forget in "Butters' Very Own Episode", how he finds out that his mother tried to kill him, and then his parents tried to cover it up with some really awful lies. Stan asks him if he's okay after hearing that, and he says "Yeah, I'm fine" then adds, "No, I'm lying".
- His treatment in "The Death Of Eric Cartman" is also rather horrific - if he didn't have issues before, I'll bet that after about 14 hours of anal probing he will now.
- At the end of "Marjorine" his parents lock him in the basement. You don't see him in "Follow That Egg!" at all - and considering that the kids are named and paired for their Egg Project you'd think if he was there he'd be given somebody, but he's not there. He doesn't even show in the background at any point. The most rational explanation? That his parents kept him in that basement for up to a week before they worked out he'd only faked his own death.
- Another moment in "Marjorine", when he's sobbing in the bathroom as Marjorine, Butters tells the girls tearfully, "You have no idea how hard it is to be me!" Not "the new girl" or "the new kid" but "me". That moment really suggests that for a long time Butters has been faking a lot of his smiles.
- Trey Parker has, at one point, claimed that there might have been a correlation between Jesus' death in "Red Sleigh Down", and Kenny's reappearance in the same episode...
- Kenny isn't Jesus. He's the result of a Cult creating an immortal kid. But definitely not Jesus.
- Though he did cross the line at dressing up as Courtney Love. "Awww, come on, fellas, don't make me be Courtney Love."
- He doesn't like her possibly? Plus he was cross-dressing as a character, not as himself.
- He could just end up being Gender Fluid, meaning some days he is Butters, other days he is Marjorine, just depends on his mood.
- This does give some more insight to the line "You have no idea how hard it is to be me!" from the episode Marjorine. It may or may not also suggests a little bit as to why he is bi-curious.
- "Winking brown eye" refers to something... different, mostly in that context.
- ...Seems like he was referring to his eyes.
- His face wasn't peeking through the parka, something else was. Come on, skippy, you can figure it out.
- It was a Double Entendre.
- ...Seems like he was referring to his eyes.
Anyway, sexuality in South Park is a spectrum, although everyone is at least "a little gay," with some being "very, very gay" (i.e. Mr. Garrison). Suppressing homosexuality turns into an obsession with being in control of other males (Mr. Garrison is always in control of his relationship and is obsessed with being the teacher, Stephen is always in control of Butters, Cartman is obviously obsessed with authoritah, Jimbo is in charge of his "relationship" with Ned, Randy suppressed it with Gerald in the hot tub and has since turned into the de facto leader of South Park), and possibly insanity (the suicides in the conversion camp, Jimbo's crazed hunting, Randy's ever-increasing stupidity). The more homosexual and overall horny they are, the crazier they get (Garrison wanting to be molested by his parents, split personality, complete disregard for his students' lives, going through the entire sexual spectrum including the opposite sex and back). Had Garrison not suppressed it, he would have ended up more like Mr. Slave (proud, happily married, and acknowledging that the life of a whore is a bad one).
The Super Adventure Club learned of this and have been suppressing their feelings for adult males in order to become fully committed to authority and shed themselves of any remorse in their pursuit of power, while having sex with boys in order to prevent insanity. Members who lean closer to heterosexuality have sex with girls to prevent the opposite (chaos). They have also possibly been manipulating factions such as NAMBLA, the Church of Scientology, and Alcoholics Anonymous in their quest.
Butters may be the only organism to be 100% straight, and since he does not release enough of this heterosexuality (mostly due to his father's demands and friends' teasing), he occasionally has a desire to unleash chaos upon the world. Similarly, Big Gay Al may be the only organism to be 100% homosexual, hence why both characters are pretty much the purest non-Mormon people. Mormons are special and possibly ignore these rules. (Possibly connected to polygamous practices, although that aspect has never been touched upon by the show.)
- Perhaps the portals were disposed of by burying them in the Gulf and on the moon. This would at the very least explain why Cthulhu, well known as a character in H.P. Lovecraft's stories, is suddenly real in another dimension.
- The relationship between Cartman and Butters has become as significant as Stan and Kyle. Thus, Butters will eventually be added to Cartman's part. Kenny's lines have supposedly been changed in seasons 3, 7, and 10b (plus he was replaced by Timmy in season 6), so rerecording the Core Four's lines so that there's an updated feeling all around doesn't seem too unlikely.
- He's already in the front line right right behind the main four.
- They're likely already pissed that Earth had all contact forcibly cut off from it. All they need is a little push.
- Evidence for Kenny: His immortality is implied to because of the dark lord Cthulhu, so maybe he has to give up that power and sacrifice himself to stop Cthulhu.
- Evidence for Cartman: He controlled Cthulhu and partook in Mass Murder. I doubt that anyone is going to let him off the hook after this. Although there is less evidence for this theory because Cartman is the only reason a lot of people watch the show.
- This is officially Jossed.
- Thank god.
- Not for lack of trying on Kenny's part.
- Thank god.
- The South Park writers were genuinely annoyed with having to kill Kenny each and every week. So a plan was constructed to end the gag, semi-permanently; They already knew no one would question it when Kenny would be killed, so by getting rid of him in the Very Special Episode at the end of the fifth season, this helped give leeway for Butters as a popular character. They also knew if they had brought him back immediately and then just proceeded to not kill him anymore, fans would just question this new course of action. So to avoid this, Kenny remained dead for the entire sixth season, in order to throw everybody off. By the time he came back, you wouldn't question why he didn't die in "Cancelled", or "Krazy Kripples", or "Toilet Paper", you just accepted the fact he was here to stay.
- Just so I can say I called it.
- I really hope it includes some kind of alternate ending.
- The Imaginationland DVD included "A Woodland Critter Christmas" and "ManBearPig," so a theoretical Coon and Friends DVD including "The Coon" (and possibly "Cartman Joins NAMBLA" or "Professor Chaos") seems quite likely.
- How is "Cartman Joins NAMBLA" connected?
- "Cartman Joins NAMBLA" ends Kenny being reborn, with his parents mentioning this is the 53nd time this had happened.
- When the Goth Kids were showing Kenny the Necronomicon, there is a picture of cultists doing something to a baby. Kenny's mother was drunk and pregnant at one of the meetings and offered fetus!Kenny to the Old Ones. It turns out the Old Ones are pro-life (the Outer Gods are pro-choice), so they turned Kenny into an immortal in order to curse the mother and, in their [many] eyes, bless the unfortunate fetus.
- The "Coon and Friends" trilogy failed to address why Kenny dies regularly. Here are some options:
- Kenny, being a young Humanoid Abomination, is considered a foreign contaminate by the universe and thus it is always trying to get rid of him.
- The Joozians know of Kenny's status as an Humanoid Abomination, and are either trying to get rid of him or exploiting his curse for entertainment.
- Going along with the implication in "Cripple Fight" that his parka is the cause of his deaths, the parka is some kind of cultist cloak for your kids, some kind of creation by an Old One or Outer God, or, going along with the above two theories, was created by the universe or Joozians. Nothing happened when Butters wore the parka in "Jared Has Aides" because it wasn't the same kind, or because Butters was too pure/destined to save Imaginationland. Furthermore, the reason so much bad stuff happened at once when Jimmy wore it was because Kenny had grown resistance to it over the years, hence why he dies much less post-season 5.
- In Sunshine the filmmakers used Kenny's parka as inspiration for the design of the super-heat-resistant spacesuits. How the memes are mutating...!
- The universe might actually be killing him in an attempt to turn him into a full Eldritch Abomination. When he is killed, a bit more of his mortal side (or whatever he got from the McCormicks) dies and a little more of his Old One (or whatever he really is) is put in place. Why isn't he fully an Abomination by now? Hey, he's an Eldritch Abomination. 15 or so seasons of deaths and a movie is nothing to his kind. And yes, this is totally ripped off of Rasputin from Hellboy (2004).
- Time flows strangely in the town of South Park because it is cursed. Everyone outside of it ages normally. Kyle's cousin Kyle is really a short adult, hence why he has been on many flights by himself. Celebrities are immortal because they have so much money (remember money's healing power against AIDS). Also, money originates from R'lyeh and most celebrities are cultists.
- He also inadvertently gives those around him amnesia due to his presence as an Humanoid Abomination. When he's dead, his friends memories about his multiple deaths can resurface and they show awareness of them- but as soon as he's revived, they disappear. This is a protective measure he subconsciously takes so no one recognizes him as something inhuman and won't attack him/experiment on him/be driven mad by his presence/etc.
- In addition, he doesn't have to use his mother to be reborn, it's just the way he's most used to and uses automatically. If something ever does happen to her, he'll just start materializing when he's reborn instead (as he's been shown to be capable of on occasion). He could do this consciously, if he ever became aware of just how he revives himself.
- Maybe he makes his mother experience childbirth when he's mad at her.
- Rather than a self-defense mechanism, it may be a natural Weirdness Censor. The insanity-inducing powers of Lovecraft's monsters were a result of their unnatural existence; they do not belong in our universe, so anything of this universe cannot take being around it. Kenny is only part-Eldritch, or influenced by an Eldritch Abomination, so his existence doesn't defy nature. However his deaths and rebirths do, and so to resolve the dissonance people just forget he died in the first place.
- A reporter notes that Cthulhu is not behaving as scientists predicted, and the Goth Kids are also disappointed. Cartman directed Cthulhu to very specific targets, whereas on his own he may have indiscriminately destroyed everything or targeted more crucial points (i.e. Washington, NYC and other global cities, religious headquarters like the Vatican, etc.). Plus all the time spent doing "cute" stuff certainly helped. Had it not been for Cartman, Cthulhu would have likely taken over the world, or at least caused way more damage, by the time Mintberry Crunch received his father's message.
- Remember the episode "Succubus"? Cartman replaces his eyes with Kenny's in the end. Thus he remembers seeing Kenny's deaths from then on, hence his comment in "Cartmanland" and why he wasn't that surprised when he returned from the "dark oblivion." Being an Humanoid Abomination may explain why his evilness grew from that point and why he appealed to Cthulhu so much.
- A Cartman look-alike in the "Jesus vs Frosty" short was actually named Kenny, so perhaps this justifies?
- They already did, in "Super Best Friends".
- True, but that episode will never air again until the Muhammad taboo is lifted, which can only be done by a future uncensored appearance of Muhammad. And South Park is the only show that dares to challenge this taboo.
- They already did, in "Super Best Friends".
- In fact, they all already have superpowers, even Cartman:
- Mysterion has self-resurrection
- Mint-Berry Crunch has super cereal powers
- The Coon has pathos manipulation
- The Human Kite has logos manipulation
- Toolshed has Clark Kenting powers, gained from Lorde
- Mosquito has betrayal powers; see South Park: The Stick of Truth, Make Love, Not Warcraft and Lice Capades
- Iron Maiden has luck (stealing?) powers; see Handicar
- and Tupperware has Iron Man-ness.
- So why isn't he traumatized? (Apparently, his attitude towards sex is far from that of a traumatized kid.)
- Some kids act like that as a cover, or he could be diverting it.
- This seems very plausible to me. He shows a number of potential red flags:
- Hypersexuality / precocious sexuality:
- Kenny is consistently shown as having a far more adult knowledge of sex than his peers, one of the most common indicators of sexual abuse in his age group. He rarely shows childish misunderstandings about sex the way that Cartman does, for example.
- He seeks out sexual contact in adult ways (e.g. giving and soliciting blowjobs), again as opposed to Cartman whose sexual curiosity is much more along the lines of what you'd expect from an 8-10 year old.
- Reluctance to remove clothes or be seen naked/uncovered when it would be appropriate. I'm referring to the way that he rarely removes his parka or uncovers his face. Even when at a waterpark in Pee, he puts a towel around his face to conceal it. It's strange, somewhat neurotic behavior that should have an adult concerned.
- Substance abuse: this is more typical of teens, but it is nevertheless a common reaction to sexual abuse, and he has it bad.
- Probably other things I haven't thought of.
- Hypersexuality / precocious sexuality:
- Of course, as in real life, those are just red flags and not for-sure indicators. Nothing in his portrayal so far absolutely requires sexual abuse as an explanation (they could mostly be covered by the abuse and neglect we already know about, plus the whole dying-all-the-time thing), but if Matt and Trey decided to take his character in that direction, let's just say it wouldn't be out of nowhere.
- Duhh it's South Park
- Turns out Craig takes this position
Any holes in the theory?
- Huge hole in theory 2: only Mormons go to Heaven. Mc-Cormack family are Roman Cthactholic. Huge hole in theory 3: Movie, Kenny going to Hell was presented as a huge sacrifice rather than same old same old. Kenny explained he dies and wakes up in bed.
- Given his ramblings afterwards about "killing the innocent" and being Obviously Evil, it's more likely this is just Too Dumb to Live as usual. That or he has Tourette's.
- Well, it kinda did snap back. Just not the way anyone thought.
- That can explain why Shelley calls everyone "turds", because when she turned 10 she started seeing things as turds and now that Stan turned 10 he sees everything as s**t... coincidence?
- That it is rumored she might have constant periods.
- That depends, how many other easily discredited conspiracy theories have those two presented as anything less than utterly ridiculous?
- Oh, I thought it was a Take That! to shippers who see any interaction between characters as romantic interest.
- OP - I'm sure it is, but I just loved how deadpan those kids were and would really like to see them again.
- Kyle went through a lot of emotionally-damaging crap throughout the series, even more than Stan, and his turn may involve an adult breaking his self-esteem with certain words to address whatever problem he has might lead to an existential dilemma where at one point, Kyle contemplates suicide, but is stopped.
- I am actually betting on his leaning toward dealing with his family in some way. Sheila would be a good candidate to be a type of Tiger Mom that's been popular in the media lately. Combine with her already overbearing Jewish mother stereotypes and Kyle getting closer to his faith's adulthood (13 years) could lead to this.
- seeing that aliens have been observing the events of South Park since their focus in the first episode, without practically any mention from the characters, it is possible that the finale will have an alien invasion (possibly involving some event that resets the show back to the pilot, possibly Retconning the whole show, or creating a Stable Time Loop).
- I know! The real, historical Muhammed (not the one from Imaginationland, who was part of the Super Best Friends) engaged in some kind of ritual that left him immortal and looking like a grey alien. This would retroactively make every single episode as (or rather, more) offensive than 201.
- Except that this all hinges on Wendy expecting the reaction from Kyle and there really not being much of an indicator that he was all that concerned about his looks. In fact, even through the episode he never claims to consider himself good looking but botheed only by being at the bottom. Wendy's really never had any signs of being vindictive toward Kyle and if "Follow That Egg" is any indicator, they can actually get along just fine, removing jealousy as a drive.
- The only kind deed he's really done without any ulterior motives or selfish reasoning is save cats, which if anything shows in contrast just how cruel he is to people. Cartman also does recognize himself as evil, deep down. The List deleted scene shows him even acknowledge that he is a bad person. He also gets off on people's suffering, so I'm not sure if he's all that innocent.
- Better wait a while before confirming or jossing anything here? Let's not forget Eric Cartman possesses a poor understanding about sexuality and he makes gay jokes everyone once in a while he could be bisexual or even straight for all we could know so it's best to wait for the future before making up our minds.
- Some instances see him more gender-confused than gay but that leads to its own theory...
- I think that Cartman has sexuality problems and is thus unsure about whether he's gay or not. After all, he is currently dating a girl (Heidi Turner), although there are speculations below that he's secretly eating 'member berries and that he automatically became interested in girls since the 'member berries are homophobic. But only time will find out if 'member berries are manipulating him (that is, if he even eats them).
- Cartman never kissed Kyle...he's also displayed an attraction to girls (Bebe's boobs, Patty Nelson, Wendy) before- even before Heidi. He may be bi, but this could also be due to Cartman seeing sexual acts as a means to demean rather than anything romantic (which so far, is pretty accurate).
- Some instances see him more gender-confused than gay but that leads to its own theory...
- Stan Marsh - Bicurious. Probably leaning on homosexual (his Ho Yay with Kyle is epic), and he does have his relationship with Wendy (but it isn't as chemically strong as him and Kyle)
- Kyle Brofloski - Gay. We haven't seen him have a relationship with a girl, and has a Ho Yay-rich relationship with Stan(and, though he hates to admit, Cartman.)
- Jossed as of "Cartman Finds Love" considering he was legitimately interested in Nichole and was more than a little pleased at all the attention the girls were giving him before finding out the reason being that Cartman floated a rumor of them being a gay couple to keep him from hooking up with Nichole and allow for Token Minority Couple to take place. Kyle's not likely to ever be the Lovable Sex Maniac that Kenny is, but he does show occasional interest in girls.
- Eric Cartman - Depraved Bisexual, with gender issues. May want to become a woman in the future.
- Kenny Mc Cormick - Straight, Lovable Sex Maniac.
- Butters Stotch - Camp Straight. Or possibly asexual. He really doesn't have any ideas of adult stuff like sexuality so it's tough to judge, but he does seem to like girls.
- I see all of them as being straight, except maybe Stan (Word of God said he's the most likely to be Bisexual but the reasoning way pretty stereotypical) . Right now they're just 10 year olds.
- Watch "Butters' Bottom Bitch". Where Cartman manipulates people with fear and using their own ignorance, Butters is so kind and sweet and understanding that he can even make good friends with frickin' prostitutes and can make them a successful business because they are loyal to and trust him. When he grows up and understands sex a bit better, he'll do it again and make good money out of it. I mean, he worked out the basics of the business all by himself; the real Pimps just added to his verbatim and helped him make the step up to real hoes.
- Do you know what I am saying?
- I expect Kenny to work for him. He may even be his bottom bitch.
They've also been lowering our intelligence with various authoritaHs. Mr Garrison was used to wear away our learning capabilities, Officers Barbady and Harrison to weaken our forces, and manatees to weaken our imagination. Speaking of imagination, the terrorists got ahold of Imaginationland and thanks to the Cult. Jesus, Santa, Satan and even God? They aren't. The only gods are the Outer Gods, and these figures are beings from Imaginationland.
Kenny serves as the Soul Jar of Cthulhu. Why is he immortal? Because he carries the soul of Cthulhu. The reason? If someone ever manages to kill Cthulhu, he'll regenerate as a lich. And, given the nature of the undead, being attacked by nukes will empower the zombie Cthulhu. However, they also knew Cthulhu could take them out. The solution? Find a way to take out Cthulhu. Since Kenny is Cthulhu's Soul Jar, if Cthulhu kills him, it'll backfire.
In short, the Cult of Cthulhu are a group of magnificent chessmasters. Thankfully, they do have enemies. There are another group of cultists, led by the Elder Gods(likely Kthanid and Nodens). They've been doing their best to thwart the Cult of Cthulhu, by bringing forth sanity. The Elder Gods have mated with humans in order to produce people to fight Cthulhu. These include H.P Lovecraft(hence why he knows about such entities), Bradle Biggy(as he did stop Cthulhu) and Eric Cartman(he seems to remember Kenny dying)
- The same argument could be made for Craig or Tweek, who both have hair colors that don't match anyone in their families.
- I can totally see this happening, as a sort of revenge for all the crap Cartman has said to/put Kenny through over the years.
- As mentioned above, when Butters grows up, he'll be a sucsessful pimp.
- Kenny will be the world's greatest porn star.
- Snuff porn, it'll be so popular because the feds will be convinced it's faked.
- Cartman will become the President/King. He's a major Manipulative Bastard, so I can expect him to get the votes.
- Jossed. Cartman ends up either the President of a Time Travel corporation or a mechanic depending on if he ever turns his life around from the craphole it is.
- Stan would either become a vet as an adult or an ecoterrorist.
- Kyle will stick with something computer or tech related. If his parents try to push the family business on him he would threaten philosophy.
- Jack can't die, but he can age. He wanted to stay young longer, so, he reverted himself to a baby, erased his memories, and went to South Park around the 90's. When he gets to a certain point, he'll find a way to get back his memories.
- Tooth Fairy 2000 has Kyle read huge amounts of existential philosophy and manages to remove himself from the field of reality before merging with it and saving the kids from the dentists.
- Later, he spends an entire episode trying to dismiss Cartman's psychic abilities (and psychics in general) only for the episode to end with his outburst triggering a power surge.
- Kyle tends to believe in scientific or logical explanations for the happenings around him. Even if he had such powers, he'd dismiss them as mere coincidence.
- That sounds more legit if you put their personalities together (the fact that they can resurrect and are both pervs...but Rika is rarely shown as a pervert). The only differences are 1)Rika's parents died already. Kenny's didnt and 2)If Rika has Hanyuu, then who does Kenny have? But based on their personalities with the Cheerful to Cynical facade, it sounds legit.
- Element of Laughter: Jimmy
- Element of Honesty: Gary Harrison (All About the Mormons)
- Element of Loyalty: Stan
- Element of Generosity: Token
- Element of Magic: Kenny
- I actaully think Kyle makes a good Element of Honesty.
- Him or Craig due to him never blindly follows people and take control of his life like in "Pandemic"
- I actaully think Kyle makes a good Element of Honesty.
- Likewise District 11's recreation of Southern slavery.
- This seems pretty unlikely. Why do another anime-styled episode when Fun Times With Weapons did the job so extremely well?
- I can see them doing something like this - as a Take That! against the show's Yaoi Fangirl fanbase rather than a nod to them. Kenny would be a girl and, if there's an action element, "she'd" transform into a Magical Girl very similar to Princess Kenny but older. And this version of Kenny would inevitably become an Ensemble Dark Horse thanks to the Misaimed Fandom.
- It could be a mix of this and possible brain damage. It would kinda make sense.
- He's already done a lot to get back at his family. He stops taking the pointless punishments as of "The Ungroundable" and his ultimate CMOA may be his Take That! speech to his Bullying grandmother.
- While under the influence that everything was Virtual Reality... Butters FINALLY punched Steven in the balls for grounding him one too many times in "Grounded Vindaloop"
- He's already done a lot to get back at his family. He stops taking the pointless punishments as of "The Ungroundable" and his ultimate CMOA may be his Take That! speech to his Bullying grandmother.
- Contrast from seasons 5-14 where he was consistently the Only Sane Man, particularly to his father.
- Considering how his friends treat him, they probably won't consider it an issue unless they get inside his head and experience his thoughts for a moment.
- The same could have been said for Family Guy, and look how that turned out.
- They actually were trying to pick a fight and cause the fandoms to make a rivalry.
- The Rats could be from the same place as Cthulhu!
- Wasn't Not Without My Anus an in-universe drama show? It didn't actually depict "real" events within the universe, so Saddam actually didn't die at that point.
- The In Universe Ret-Con for his first death was being killed by a pack of wild boars. The News reporters mention this in the movie.
Or maybe it takes a while to gain the ability to remember deaths, so Kenny remembers because he has died so many times, but Karen just thinks it's a bad dream or false memory.
OR Kenny and Karen know about this, and this is another reason why Kenny dubs the Mysterion "guardian angel" disguise, so that Karen feels like she has someone to relate to.
He's a spoiled brat because Liane is afraid to discipline him because well... do you want the last thing you said to someone before they died to be a scolding?
Mainly based on the fact that's he rather precocious when it comes to sexual terms.
- Yep. "Cartman Finds Love" is a lovable play on it from several fronts, all at Kyle's expense.
Before the series, Stan spent the day with Jimbo and Ned and they gave him a bottle of whisky. Out of innocence and naivety Stan tried the whisky, and ending up getting drunk which resulted in fascinating illusions that interested him. In the beginning of the series, he kept secretly stealing his fathers whisky to continue seeing these illusions.
By season five, he started to use the whisky as coping mechanism for the depression he felt after Kenny died, as a way to repress it and hope that Kenny can return again.
By the time Stan turned ten, he made a pledge that he would stop drinking and become a better person. But by doing so, he failed to realize how severe his depression had become because he had never went for therapy, and his parents never suggested it to him. When he was introduced to the alcohol again, it offered a major boost of endorphins, but he realized he was hurting his best friend and found that to be unbearable, turning away from the alcohol just like he tried for his tenth birthday.
Now Stan uses the whisky to deal with the annoyance of everybody (except his best friend) along with repressing his depression and insanity.
Rather than being the Only Sane Man, Stan is the only character in the entire series who represses his insanity, which is at intensity worse than Eric Cartman.
Randy uses alcohol in a similar case where he has become entirely bored with life and believes that being drunk is the only thing that keeps him entertained.
Grandpa Marsh uses alcohol as a way to possibly remember happy memories, but to no avail.
The only members of the Marsh family who dont drink are Sharon and Shelley. Shelley already sees the world as shit, but she hates her family and avoids alcohol so she does not become them. Sharon has a less severe case of depression, but it has caused her to be unable to deal with change which is the only reason why shes still married to Randy.
- This theory is supported by the beginning of "The Return of Chef". Everyone was sad to see Chef go, but Cartman was literally sobbing, and was the only character to do so. He probably took the Reasonable Authority Figure role that Chef provided way more seriously than the other boys ever did.
- The kickstart to the Imaginationland story, where terrorists invade our imaginations, is supposed to represent that we're becoming so paranoid about terrorists attacks, we're basically letting them in.
- Considering the state of Ms. Crabtree's teeth, the headgear clearly didn't work. This might explain her personality.
Alternatively, he already paid for it, but was still annoyed about Slash being a fraud that it didn't sink in how much money he lost. Once he did realize it, though, he decided to put the guitar in the corner to make it seem like Slash was the donor. Not out of humbleness, though, he was probably embarrassed by how much he lost and decided to put the full blame on the fraud.
- However, that requires two things: One: Cartman actually caring about either the Crack Babies or Kyle (He only wanted to use the Crack Babies for money, and while in some twisted way he does care for Kyle, it's not to the point where he'd actively do something nice for him like that), and Two: He would have had to get over being told Slash was a lie. Knowing Cartman, he doesn't usually let go of things that early. The second option is more realistic, but still, it would require Cartman to almost instantly get over Slash's fraud.
- And even at that, his "caring" for Kyle is thriving off of his reactions for boredom, and saving him for the sole purpose of finding his anger amusing. It's the most twisted definition of care if I ever saw one.
- Does this mean Celine Dion is poor?
- No, it means she's only rich in Canada.
- Or because they can afford plastic surgery.
- The Cult of Cthuhlu will return but this time, the Big Bad will be Nyarlathotep. Being Nyarlathotep, he will have an explination for Kenny's immortality, but will hold it over his head.
- In addition to this, he will bring a Call-Back from the movie; make it seem like Shelia is on another crusade that could start a war, so the public can have somthing to scapegoat.
- Return of old characters such as Saddam and Darth Chef and Ensemble Dark Horse Characters such as Damian, Gregory, and Kelly.
- The Wii U wins.
- Stan and Kyle invent a new game
- Cartman becomes an adventurer and accused of cannibalism
- Kenny becomes an actor then a secret agent
- Butters becomes a mormon and then a porn star
- Riiiight. Yeah, no, pretty much jossed due to Trey being the only writer on the episode. But nice try.
- Many celebrities who've been killed reappear later on, like Bill Gates. He's shot in the head in the movie, but reappears later on with a scar on his head. In "Die Hippie Die" the mayor shoots herself in the head, but is shown with a bandage on her head later on. It's very possible in the South Park universe to recover from a gun to the head.
- If Hitler is reincarnated into Cartman, how is he still in Hell?
- Kyle's Psychic outburst at the end of "Cartman's Incredible Gift" strongly resembled Accidental Magic, which could indicate that Kyle is a Muggleborn.
- That's not the only possible magic performed by Kyle. In "The Tooth Fairy Tats 2000", Kyle accidentally phased himself out of reality before merging with it and eventually returning to normal.
- Seemingly confirmed with the new episode "The Cissy", which is set to lampoon Tumblr trends like "transtrenders"note .
- Confirmed in "The Magic Bush."
- OP still! As a counter WMG: The show will actually STAY with the continuity since it has become popular in Western Animation'
Taking into account that Stan, Kyle, and Kenny tend to hate anything that is popular they fall into this category.
It's becoming increasingly obvious. Perhaps it'll be for the season 18 finale.
As for which one, the most likely choice would be Randy, given how he was not only missing from "Grounded Vindaloop" (the only episode this season to not include him in one scene), but also it would explain the on-going plot of Randy being the true identity of Lorde.
- Although Steve and his Customer Service office do make a cameo appearance.
- Who knows, what if Cartman is trapped in his room due to the alloy that kept others from going in when he was "Cartmanbra", plus many people would like to see what happens to Shelley once she discovered that Randy and Lorde are one and the same.
- Confirmed! While not as united as season 18, PC Principal makes several references to the show, including to Cissy when stating South Park was un PC.
- According to that episode Officer Barbrady was the ONLY lawman in South Park, perhaps after the "Chickenlover" incident The Mayor played it safe and formed a much bigger Police force with Sgt. Yates heading it.
- "Mc" is Scottish, "O" would be Irish. So, no.
- "Mc" is used by both Scots and Irish, it's short for "Mac" which means "son of" in both dialects of Gaelic.
- Her angry attitude isn't because of her headgear, or the fact she sees the world as literal "turds" like Stan when he turned 10, or because she has constant PMS. It's Gaynst.
- I can't really imagine her putting up with men or boys. As for her 22 year old boyfriend, she was just expermenting.
- Cartman thought she wanted a picture of breast in "Preschool".
- And of course, the obvious stereotype.
- This has been confirmed.
- This troper has a feeling that the episode will be similar to "Cartman Finds Love."
- The ending of Naughty Ninjas seems to suggest that he is plotting something sinister.
Oh, and the middle-class residents? They would be enslaved as free labor, and force them to work 24/7 without rest. ALL FOR MONEY. And if the government tries to invervene, the corporations would signal the Russians to invade.
However, there will be a twist: Hillary Clinton will be the Douche, and Donald Trump will be some other option that would be truly catastrophic if selected. The boys will be dumbfounded by people's inability to pick the bad option over the Civilization-ending one.
- Confirmed for Giant Douche and Turd Sandwich on the 2016 Election, but Jossed as Hillary Clinton is Turd Sandwich and Mr. Garrison is Giant Douche. Time will tell for the rest, though.
In "Cripple Fight" he tried to kill Jimmy by dressing him up as Kenny, hoping whatever force kept killing Kenny would be tricked into killing Jimmy. Timmy's mental handicap makes him immune to whatever force is wiping everyone's memories.
Because why not?
- At this point, he'd be more likely to do this to throw the election.
It's an unpleasant thought but it makes so much sense.
And there will be a three part episode with them as ninja's to set it up.
After the controversial real-life incident regarding a guy showing a video of him having sex with a McDonald's McChicken sandwhich, there will be an episode centered around that controversy, thus making a callback to the Season 2 episode "Chickenlover".
- Further to this, the ads are responsible for the creation of the Member Berries. They killed Gerald and replaced him with a sexist ad to start a gender war and hope the boys and girls of South Park Elementary wipe each other out physically, leaving their corporate overlords free to bulldoze the school and create a massive factory.
- After all, why did Garrison run for President to begin with? He was fed up with PC Principal.
This will make the gender war complicated.
- Jossed. He doesn't know what Member Berries are.
But then it'll turn out that everyone who died was a reboot created by JJ Abrams. How is this possible? Think Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
- Alternatively, they're manipulating each other, or are co-conspirators.
- This could almost be confirmed. In "Fort Collins", while he and Heidi are talking to Kyle while he goes to the bathroom, Cartman says the following quote: "I remember not that long ago, Kyle, when you told me in this very room I believe, that you were going to prove who the troll was no matter what. Do you remember that, Kyle? Where's that Kyle?", and then he nostalgiacally reflects on the old Kyle. This could very well indeed imply that he secretly eats 'member berries.
- Jossed. Trump actually won the election. And thus Garrison will become the new POTUS. He'll probably be dragged kicking and screaming into the Oval Office.
Heidi will inform all of South Park elementary how she found out that nobody at school is skankhunt42 based on the emoji analysis she used. This will result in the girls apologizing to the boys and getting back with their ex-boyfriends, and most importantly it will be revealed who was dating who (except for Stan and Token because we already knew they were dating Wendy and Nichole) since some of the major characters (like Kenny, Jimmy and Clyde) were shown heartbroken after presumably receiving breakup notes from the girls and we never got to see who they were dating.
Or alternatively the girls would feel like jackasses once they realize skankhunt42 is neither a student nor a teacher but an adult and the boys would be so pissed off at them for this and their betrayal that they might not want to have anything to do with the girls because of their mistake.
- It appears that when Stan tries to reason with Wendy, the rest of the boys (Butters in particular) call him out on it. This indeed implies that the boys will never forgive the girls for their mistake, but Stan is the only wise one who's willing to forgive his girlfriend and get back with her.
- On the other end of this theory, the girls will refuse to get back together with their boyfriends because they believe admitting they were wrong would make them inferior. This will cause many of the boys to snap and try to force themselves on the girls, leading to many recurring kid characters being Killed Off for Real.
By the time this season ends, Gerald would either be..1. Arrested for his internet crimes.2. Surprisingly and unexpectedly killed off as a Cruel Twist Ending or Wham Episode.or 3. Gets away with it seeing as the Crapsack World of South Park rewards evil idiots like Cartman, Randy, and Officer Yates.
- To add to #1, in addition to being arrested, Sheila will divorce his ass, and Kyle will take Cartman's place as the most-hated kid in school.
- When the latter happens, Kyle will constantly have to inform everyone at school that he wasn't responsible for Gerald's action, but everyone will be oblivious to this fact and still hate on Kyle, much to his annoyance. This will result in Kyle trying his hardest for everyone to appreciate him again and to put Cartman back as the most-hated kid at school.
- But Cartman, having gone back to his old self after Heidi either dumps or is killed, will push back at Kyle's attempts to regain his lost reputation by using it as an opportunity to turn the entire school against the Jews. This will ultimately bring the gender war to an end as the boys and girls unite against a common enemy, and come to realize that skankhunt42 was one of the parents.
- #3 has been confirmed; Gerald got away with it.
- On the bright side, perhaps the return of Evil Cartman is the final key to stop the Member Berries from taking over the world. But then again, "Member when Cartman was the poster boy for Jerkass?"
- It is also a possible way to reset the series, since Fans have been complaining about the loss of Cartman's legendary Politically Incorrect Jerkassery in the past.
- More realistically, Cartman will pull out the gun he got at the end of Season 19 and shoot her dead, before going off to end the gender war by beating up Butters and calling everyone out for their utter stupidity, telling them there's a much bigger threat. Of course, no one believes him, the boys will accuse him of taking the girls' side, and the gender war becomes deadly as nameless background boys and girls are killed in a massive, bloody battle.
- From a writing point of view, why would they do such a thing? Now they have their very own non-copyright stand in for the president, he's to South Park what Mayor Quimby is to Simpsons
- It ends Garrison's political career and brings him back to South Park while acknowledging Hillary Clinton's real life loss.
- It's a jab against Donald Trump and criticism of his policies by adding a primate as President.
- By having an animal president the Crapsack World of Stupid the show is infamous for is kept consistent. Hey, a Rabbit became proven as the successor of St. Peter, so why not?
Ok, now hear me out.
Norm of the North has already been compared to the fake trailers from Season 6's "The Biggest Douche in the Universe" and it's garnered itself the reputation of being one of, it not, the worst animated movie ever made. So with those two things in mind, it's hard not to see him being brought back for this season with him being the true villain responsible for everything that's happened in the season.
- He was the one responsible for making Giant Douche and Turd Sandwich the presidential candidates.
- He is the real creator of the Member Berries and had them make constant references to Star Wars in order to make J. J. Abrams a Red Herring (which Randy fell for).
- Tying into a WMG above, he was the one who murdered Freja Ollengard and made it look like a suicide.
- He is the one actually in charge of TrollTrace with Bedrager being The Dragon.
- He was the one who got the Member Berries to turn Caitlyn Jenner an Unwitting Pawn in his plan and got Garrison the win as President.
- We can now say this is Jossed.
- Doubtful, Cartman has been fixated on vaginas ever since "Butterballs", Inside Amy Schumer aired in 2012 and before that Cartman was too much of a sexist bigot to care.
- Alternatively, watching Amy Schumer is killing his brain cells.
- "Member the late 60's where the hippies dominated and everyone could be almost anything they wanted to?" "Member the collectives?""Oh I member!"
So, they get back together...and are immediately viewed as traitors by the boys and girls. Everywhere they go, they're jeered at, and it comes to a head when Butters has Stan kidnapped and he personally beats him. On the girls' side, the police are informed about Wendy beating up Cartman. The police don't care, saying Cartman has committed so many crimes (chief among them imprisoning Butters, feeding Scott Tenorman his own parents, and killing Justin Bieber with Cthulhu), but he hasn't been arrested because the cops don't want to arrest a minor or incur the wrath of the PC Fraternity, not to mention they're too focused on trying to hunt down rogue holograms and living ads.
None of this tears Stan and Wendy apart. Instead, they form a third faction for any couples wise enough to get back together, and go around spreading the message of gender-equality.
PC Principal is delighted by the third faction, and uses it as an example of boys and girls coming together for a greater cause.
Since it's pretty obvious that Butters is trying to steal Heidi from Cartman, this will anger him so much that he will go as far as trying to murder him and thus go back to his old makes-you-eat-your-own-parents self. As a result, Heidi will be shocked beyond words about how cruel and dark Cartman truly is, and will dump him to be in a relationship with Butters.
- A few problems:
- 1. Butters' nice behavior isn't necessarily trying to steal Heidi from Cartman, he's just genuinely sweet.
- 2. Butters probably still has feelings for Charlotte.
- 3. Cartman isn't likely to resort to murder against Butters; he knows Butters is terrified of him anyway, and threatening him would probably solve the problem just as well.
- Jossed; Butters really isn't trying to take Heidi from Cartman.
Not only did his mom instigate a war with Canada in the movie, but his dad's trolling led to most of the problems that happened in Season 20, including a war with Denmark. Even if Kyle tries to ignore the problem, everyone else will remember what his parents, particularly Gerald, have done. Cartman would be able to use his parents' actions as examples to justify his anti-semetic beliefs, and perhaps convince people to join him, assuming he goes back to being his old self. Considering how the girls were willing to judge all the boys for the actions of one internet troll, and how ugly the gender war got in Season 20, he might be able to get everyone to judge Kyle, particularly because his dad is the troll responsible for the school-wide gender war. Unlike the gender war which split the school into two factions, only two students would suffer from the discrimination Cartman would instigate, assuming Kyle and Ike are the only Jewish students. Because of this, Kyle will become too afraid to stand up for anything fearing that he'll end up starting a war of his own, just like his parents.
- Confirmed, he tried to cancel Terence and Philip and it ended with United States and Canada to go into war again. Also, does Cartman calling Kyle his own mom count?
As part of the series' 20th anniversary, there will be an episode based on the show's early seasons, with numberous call backs and Continuity Nods to the old episodes: Kenny will die for the first time in forever, Stan will barf on Wendy when she comes near him, the boys will be shown at the bus stop, and so on.
- Since a lot of fans missed the character, Pip might come Back from the Dead in the episode.
Prior to Season 20, Cartman was still the self-centered asshole he had always been, but then in s20 he all of the sudden became politically correct and even got a girlfriend, neither of which any fans saw coming. Since Cartman's new personality seems unbelievable, I'm guessing that the ending of the Season 20 finale will consist of all the characters waking up and realizing that those crazed events (ie. The gender war, Cartman getting a girlfriend, Kyle's dad trolling, the memberberries etc.) were All Just a Dream, in Call-Back to the Season 2 episode "City on the Edge of Forever". I mean whoever heard of Cartman actually liking a girl despite the Hoyay with Kyle, Butters, and Ben Affleck in the past seasons?
Because seriously... WHO THE FUCK WOULD FRAME THEIR OWN TODDLER SON FOR HIS SELFISH NEED TO TROLL?!? That and Dildo seemed shocked Gerald would not only do his vicious trolling for fun but would do it despite having a good family and good life... what Gerald did crossed that line!
- Jossed: the other trolls do not harm Gerald.
Gerald has definitely crossed the Moral Event Horizon by framing Ike, and fan reactions have involved people hoping he dies for his actions, and these wishes for Gerald to die go as far back as the second episode of season 20, before we saw just how far Gerald was willing to go. And why were people mad? Because the other boys destroyed Cartman's electronics. Gerald was only indirectly responsible for that, yet people wanted his head on a platter before he framed Ike, and even before the Olympian killed herself.
Cartman, on the other hand, has fans demanding he go back to his old self, the same kid who made a kid eat his parents over some prank. Odds are, the episode would be a giant Take That! to the fandom's tendency to gloss over Cartman's actions while getting pissed off when other characters do similar things. Because of this, the writers will turn Gerald into a Karma Houdini to make a point about how hypocritical some of the fans are in wanting Cartman to be as cruel as he is while getting mad at others when they act similarly. The Tweek X Craig episode from season 19 proved Matt and Trey are willing to make fun of their fandom.
Also, "Member when the first episode of South Park involved Cartman getting ass-raped by aliens?
Since Kyle ran off with Ike at the end of the "Members Only", it can only be assumed that he was trying to go to Mars along with Cartman, Heidi and Butter. Kyle will probably inform everyone that his dad is the troll and is thus responsible for all the problems caused in Season 20, which will result in Kyle attempting to take Ike to Mars and everyone else will follow suit.
- Well, every episode of Season 20 has featured a cameo of Bradley...
- The Don member berry reminds the other berries of the Stormtroopers and his intentions to bring them back. Not those ones but the real-life ones
- The member berry that was shot by the Don member berry bleeds green.
- The many similarities between Donald Trump (whom Garrison is the stand-in of) and Adolf Hitler. In particular, the German-language version of Trump's book Crippled America has many of his phrases left in English because when translated into German they are literally Nazi phrases.
Since at the end of "Skank Hunt" Kenny was shown as one of the heartbroken boys who received a breakup note but we never got to see who he was dating, my guess is that when the girls reconcile with the boys, Tammy Warner from Season 13's "The Ring" will return and still turn out to have been dating Kenny. I mean, I can't imagine that any of the girls at South Park Elementary would want to date a perv like him unless they were a slut, so I'm assuming that Kenny and Tammy were still dating after "The Ring" but the couple became an Offscreen Romance after said episode.
If all attempts to go to Mars fail, the two will unfortunately return to their normal life in South Park, and much to Cartman's fear, Heidi will find out his entire internet history and instead of dumping him she will start behaving selfishly and rudely like Cartman had always acted prior to Season 20 and will thus become the female version of him, much to Cartman's relief. It's unknown whether the girls are still friends with Heidi or not; Bebe and Annie didn't seem to be too fond of the fact that her and Cartman are in a relationship, but as a result Heidi's low popularity status among her friends will reach the lowest of the low, it will be safe for Cartman to go back to his old self, and the rest of the boys won't care that Cartman always choses to hang out with his girlfriend and the girls also won't care about Heidi choosing to always hangout with her boyfriend over her "friends" due to her shocking FaceHeel Turn.
- Confirmed in "Moss Piglets"
- Jossed in the literal sense and with the trolling plotline, however, the Member Berries and the Lysistrata Gambit have no resolution. note
- And it will end with the Trolls returning to save everyone by trolling all of the groups who want to take control of South Park, resulting in Gerald being found out as Skankhunt42 and creating a new conflict between the kids and the adults.
But then again, the scene of Garrison raping Canadian Trump was absolutely hilarious, and I can't imagine a fat kid doing the same... Though he did force Kyle to suck his balls in Imaginationland...
Okay, Cartman's defining characteristic in the past seasons is his compuslive trolling that caused worldwide disasters, and more especially, his immense undying hatred of Jews. Because of this, God, or some other power, was so fed up with Cartman's antisemitism that He inflicted onto him the ultimate Punishment: turning him into a Jew. More specifically, one of the relatives of his most significant love-hate relationship, Kyle. Unfortunately, as the episode Ginger Kids have shown us, that doesn't work. Making him a minority only amplifies his trolling skills to the point it can turn into a worldwide disaster, e.g. he turned all Gingers into a neo-Nazi domination group when Stan and Kyle played a prank on him dyeing his skin and painting his hair red! What about the Cartman dating Heidi? He's an impostor created by God so that nobody could suspect that a massive switch happened. That's why, instead of feeding all the boys their own parents for destroying his electronics, he turned into a total submissive pussy to Heidi.Running Gag of Kenny dying and resurrecting each episode, the Creators are clearly tired of Cartman being the single most defining Villain of South Park. Why does it always had to be him who should be the premier poster boy for the trope Jerkass? There's a reason Jerkass is a Trope, not named "The Eric Cartman." That's why they transplanted some of Cartman's personality to other characters, like Gerald with his Trolling for the Lols and Garrison Trump with his xenophobia. This is to show that being a massive asshole need not be limited to a single fat kid, and to allow Cartman room for Character Development. Unfortunately, because of this the Creators had a massive George Lucas-level backlash from old South Park fans. But, as a form of Takethat Audience, they created the Member Berries to say "Fuck You and your nostalgia!"
- Jossed in Season 21 where its revealed that Kyle actually has feelings for Heidi and is jealous that Cartman is in a relationship with her.
- Adding onto this, this will be suggested, and encouraged, by a pedophile who only cares about fawning over them and not their cause.
It's cleared that the Don berry terrifies the 80s-themed Member Berries, so it's possible there are multiple factions of member berries. In time we'll get 60s-themed member berries ("'Member Martin Luther King?" "'member the I Have a Dream Speech?'" "'member the Civil Rights Act?'") who see the writing on the wall and want to help humans not regress to the 1930s and 40s, as well as early 2010s member berries who remember life in the years immediately before Trump ('member Obergefell v. Hodges? 'member Obamacare?). These member berries will help our heroes fight those under the control of the evil 'member berries. Although even in defeat, the older 'member berries will gloat that they'll never be truly defeated as long as people 'member only the good things about the past.
This is why, say, George Lucas seems a sympathetic antagonist in one episode yet is caught raping a Stormtrooper in another episode-the latter was a buggy clone. Whenever a celebrity is treated as a caricature for a Take That! but treated normally in another episode, it can be explained by botched cloning. The process costs millions of dollars, so only important people get the treatment. What about Osama Bin Laden, however? George Bush admits the government started the 9/11 conspiracies as a conspiracy on itself, so for their own schemes cloned him back from the dead. He dies in Barack Obama's presidency because he disagreed with that policy and smashed Osama's cloning tube.
PC Principal finds himself conflicted about this whole thing. On one hand, he's glad the gender war is over and that skankhunt42 has been exposed, but he can't sit idly by while a whole religion is targeted. To show that he's really back to his old self, Cartman exposes all the non-PC stuff PC Principal did in pursuit of being PC, leading to him getting arrested, while Principal Victoria takes her position back.
President Garrison is completely apathetic to Cartman's movement, having just commenced a full-scale invasion of Mexico. Publicly, he invaded so he could wipe out the drug cartels and make all of the illegal immigrants legal, but in truth, he plans to exterminate all Mexicans because he feels they're racially inferior. When Cartman offers to hunt down the Mexicans living in South Park, Garrison refuses, stating Cartman is just a kid. This causes Cartman and his movement to usurp the office of POTUS, and Cartman becomes president. After invading Mexico and Canada, he declares the United States has now become the First American Empire, vowing to rid the world of anyone who isn't white or Christian (he doesn't care about sexual orientation, political leaning, or nationality, just race and religion), and replacing the American flag with the Nazi flag.
Over the course of the season, Kyle and Ike go on the run, Gerald having been lynched by the other trolls and Sheila having been sent to a concentration camp by Cartman. One of the big conflicts is Stan turning on Kyle, believing he was the reason Wendy dumped him, even though they're back together. Another major plot point is Butters becoming utterly depraved, grounding his parents and torturing them on a daily basis, as well as the Member Berries being an Enemy Civil War and also fighting the Ads.
The season will end with every nation on Earth invading America after Cartman nukes the entire Middle East, Kyle and Stan in a fistfight, Butters killing his parents, and the Member Berries setting their final plans in motion. At the end of it all, everyone stops fighting and bands together when they find out the truth behind all this madness. The Ads, PC movement, Member Berries, and Trolls were all the work of JJ Abrams, wanting to become filthy rich.
It seems that all is lost...until Kenny is given a mysterious button by Satan that sends him back in time to the end of Season 18. As Mysterion, he kills PC Principal, stops the ads from taking human form, and prevents JJ Abrams from creating the Member Berries. Returning to the present, Kenny finds everything has changed. Victoria is still principal of South Park Elementary, Leslie, Gerald, and Butters' parents are still alive, the Member Berries and Trolltrace never existed, Cartman and Heidi never got together, the gender war never occurred (and as a result, all of the couples are still together), and Harambe was never shot and became President of the United States after Donald Trump was impeached (it's bound to happen, people).
And all was right with the world...until Kenny gets hit by a truck.
What is Season 21 about? How increasingly violent media is becoming.
- We can pretty safely say this is Jossed.
- Jossed. Heidi leaves Cartman before his influence completely transforms her and everyone still calls her by her first name.
However everything is not what it seems as now they have to have Strong Woman's family to accept her relationship with PC Principle. They leave South Park and go to a private community where PC Principal meets each member of Woman's family; Her father happens to be a surgeon, her mother happens to be a psychiatrist/hypnotherapist, and her brother likes making micro aggression towards black people, which infuriates PC Principal but tries to keep his cool so he wouldn't look bad in front of his family. He then goes out to get some air where he notices someone from PC Delta running all over the community.
The next day the Woman family have an annual get together inviting everyone in the community. During the get together, PC Principal notices a young white cis male with a PC Delta tattoo with a much older woman (or Kevin Spacey). PC Principal takes a picture of the male on his phone and sends to Mr. Mackey back at South Park, which causes the male to go hysterical he implores PC Principal to "get out". Woman's father claims that he simply suffered an epileptic seizure, but PC Principal doesn't believe him and persuades Strong Woman to leave the community with him when he notices her father holding an auction with PC Principal's picture on display. When they prepare to leave PC Principal notices a small box in Strong Woman's bedroom and inside the box there are various photos of Strong Woman with various men with the PC Delta tattoo as well as a picture of her with one of his former students Leslie Meyers. PC Principal confronts Strong Woman about this, only for her to reveal her self to be a willing accomplice of her family's schemes, blocks escape, and has her mother hypnotize him.
Meanwhile Mr. Mackey receives the pic and recognizes the male as a missing person. He connects this with similar cases that involves missing people with the MO being young white cis males with a PC Delta tattoos all in a relationship with Strong Woman before their disappearance. He puts two and two together and realizes PC Principal is in grave danger; he tries to get the South Park County Police involved but due to them being a bunch of corrupt idiots don't believe with and simply laugh. Luckily Barbrady who is now a Private Investigator hears this story from Mr. Mackey and believes him because he too is investigate cases similar Mr. Mackey's. Realizes that they are both working out the same case Barbrady and Mr. Mackey decide to work together solve these cases and save PC Principal from certain doom!
Back at the private community PC Principal wakes up and finds himself strapped to a chair. Appearing before him is Jordan Peele (who can voice himself here given that his show Key & Peele is on the same network as South Park) who explains PC Principal's dilemma. He reveals to PC Principal that everyone here including the Woman family and Peele are actually Ads. Not only that, but Peele also reveals himself to be the leader of the Ads and kidnapped PC Principal where they brainwashed him with PC culture before sending them to South Park, with Leslie Meyers to supervise him, so they could make the town "Politically Correct" and gentrify it, thus making it too expensive to live allowing the Ads to take over. However, PC Principal broke from his brainwashing, killed Leslie, and raised awareness of the Ads. This caused the Ads to go into hiding and hatch a new plan. This new plan involves Strong Woman luring various white cis males to the private community, have her family trap them there where they proceeds to transfer the Ads minds to the white males bodies then send them out into the country to spread PC culture; the consciousness of the host remains in the "sunken place", watching but powerless to do anything.
Not only that but it is also revealed the Jordan Peele formed a Big Bad Duumvirate with J. J. Abrams who created the member berries that caused people to become bigoted and actually had Mr. Garrison and Caitlyn Jenner arrive here against their will so they could transfer the Member Berries minds into their bodies and rig the presidential election to make Garrison the victor. This will cause the people supporting PC culture to come into conflict with people supporting bigotry and create another Civil War in America which is exactly what Jordan Peele and JJ Abrams wanted because they can now promote their new show Lovecraft Country and have people buy HBO subscriptions to watch it, thus the two would make tons of money. However now that PC Principal knows the truth, Jordan Peele decides to transfer his mind into PC Principal's body so that he wouldn't be able to tell anyone about this and will be able to spread the Ads influence in South Park.
As they prep for the mind transferring surgery PC Principal take some of the stuffing out of the chair to put in ears to block out the hypnotic commands. When Strong Woman's brother comes to collect him for the surgery, PC Principal bludgeons him, impales Strong Woman's father with the antlers of a whitetail deer mount, stabs Strong Woman's mother, and kills Jordan Peele. As PC Principal arrive to the car Strong Woman starts shooting at PC Principal with her rifle. As PC Principal drives away Strong Woman calls out to Caitlyn Jenner, which out of nowhere Caitlyn Jenner appears and crashes into PC Principal. The brainwashed Caitlyn Jenner proceeds to strangle PC Principal, however he is able to awaken "the real" Caitlyn Jenner with with his phone flash; Caitlyn takes Strong Woman's rifle, shoots her, and kills herself. PC Principal begins to strangle Strong Woman, but cannot bring himself to kill her. Then a police car arrives and Strong Woman calls for help. However the driver happens to be Barbrady, who is accompanied by Mr. Mackey who together were able tracked PC Principal's location through their investigation skills.
As the trio drive away while Strong Woman dies, another car crashes onto them, this time its JJ Abrams who is accompanied by President Garrison. JJ Abrams makes sure Mr. Mackey and Barbrady dies by shooting at their heads while he orders the brainwashed president to take PC Principal to the White House and prepare the mind transferring surgery, where JJ Abrams will transfer his mind into PC Principal's body, so he would no longer be a thorn in his plans and can finish what Jordan Peele started.
Oh and if you all haven't noticed already this story arc for season 22 is suppose to emulate Jordan Peele's critically acclaimed horror film Get Out (2017).
- Confirmed. While it doesn't follow the storyline above, there is Story Arc in Season 22 centered around to PC Principal's relationship with Strong Woman, where he inpregnates her with five PC babies and they are trying to keep the truth of how the PC babies were conceived hidden from the public.
- An episode dealing with the Weinstein effect.
- An episode in which Stephen finally goes overboard and grounds Butters for life over a very minor reason. Everyone in town treats it as a hostage situation, and Cartman, being Cartman, tries to find a way to make it work in his favor, either for money, attention, or to get Heidi back.
- An episode which reveals the status of Stan and Wendy's relationship.
- An episode based around the California wildfires.
- An episode centered around Heidi getting together with Kyle.
- An episode centered around Cartman killing Heidi and framing Kyle for it.
- An episode in which Kyle exposes his dad as skankhunt42, causing the girls to feel like jackasses and Sheila to divorce Gerald for nearly causing World War III, and beginning a story arc in which Kyle's entire life falls apart, much to Cartman's delight.
- An episode in which Cartman gets obsessed with Chinpokomon Go, only to find that the craze surrounding it has long since passed and it's considered lame.
- Further satirization of the Trump presidency, including the comments about "shithole countries".
- An episode satirizing the Hawaii ballistic missile false alarm.
- An episode satirizing the Broken Base reaction to The Last Jedi.
- An episode continuing Marcus' crusade against opioids.
- An episode satirizing the backlash against loot boxes.
Eventually Heidi and Bebe get into a massive fight for Kyle which either ends with one killing the other, Kyle finally choosing between the two, or like Satan Take a Third Option and decide to leave both of them.
As Whiterose she will have been behind the trolls, giving them the capabilities to create all of the chaos in Season 20. She will even have their IP addresses backed up to her flash drive prior to the internet being shutdown and will use it to blackmail the troll into joining the Dark Army and following her orders. Speaking of the Dark Army will have a cell in South Park who will rally any information about the towns activity to her. This Dark Army cell will be led by Kevin Stoley who will also tell her about Star Wars and how she can use that for her own plans.
As Chinese Minister of Security Zhang, she will be behind several elections of world leaders planning to plunge the world into chaos. She'll not only be something of a Distaff Counterpart for Lennart Bedrager, but she'll also reveal that she arranged Lennart,a member of the Dark Army, to become the leader of Denmark so he can create Troll Trace to plunge the entire world into conflict all on her behalf. Not only that but she will also rigged the 2016 presidential election so that Mr. Garrison becomes President.
She will also have a third persona as actor B.D. Wong where she will be responsible for instigating the Weinstein Effect. Not only that but she will also be collaborating with J. J. Abrams, whom like Lennart is also a member of the Dark Army, having him create the Memberberries on her behalf. She will use the Memberberries to influence the public masses into voting Mr. Garrison while brainwashing Mr. Garrison into accepting the Oval Office. From there she will have Mr. Garrison to commit his slew of atrocities that will weaken world relations, including sending bigoted tweets to North Korea, rape anyone to death when they know too much, and Nuke Canada.
When Whiterose learns of the events of Seasons 20 and 21 from Kevin Stoley she decides to take more direct matters. She meets with Gerald and forces him and the other troll to work for her under the threat the exposing his wife as Skankhunt 42. Likewise she will also learn of Heidi and Cartman's break up and exploit Heidi's weaken state to manipulate her into joining her Dark Army.
Whiterose will use Heidi's Emoji Analysis to pin point all the people working in the 71 E Corp buildings. Whiterose will then have all the trolls, including Gerald, overload the system boxes in those buildings causing massive explosions killing thousands of innocent people. Likewise, Whiterose has President Garrison to further weaken relationships with other countries by calling all Third-World Countries "Shitholes" as well as having him nuke Congo.
When Kyle learns of this tragedy on the news as well as his father's involvement in it he decide that he is beyond redemption at this point and exposes his identity as Skankhunt 42 to the rest of the town. This angers Sheila so much that she decides to divorce him, not to mentioned makes him an outcast by the rest of the town. Likewise, the girls will feels very awful for how they treated the boys and will get back together with them. Kyle will also tell everyone about the Dark Army being responsible for the trolls, the gender wars, and for getting President Garrison elected president. Likewise Cartman will learn of Heidi's involvement with the Dark Army and form an Enemy Mine with Kyle, so he can get a chance to kill Heidi himself because she dumped him. Together, Kyle and Cartman unite the town to fight Whiterose and the Dark Army.
The town learns of the Dark Army's headquarters in South Park where they proceed to troll it to overload their systems. This causes a mass explosion killing everyone their with the exceptions of Kevin and Heidi who managed to escape earlier. Cartman will track down Heidi and kill her personally, finally getting his revenge. Kevin reports to Whiterose about the incident that happen in South Park and how it will delay her plans for another year. This causes Whiterose to have a momentary breakdown where she kills Kevin for letting the situation spiral out of control.
Despite winning the battle South Park has yet to win the war. Kyle will learn of Whiterose, the true perpetrator of the events of Season 20 and 21, is still a very large threat that must be stopped. Kyle later comes into contact with Eliot and fsociety offering him and his town help in stopping Whiterose. Likewise Whiterose will learn that Kyle has joined forces with fsociety and the serious threat they oppose together making preparations herself, leading to a Sequel Hook for Season 23.
From there he will meet JJ Abrams who reveals himself to Kyle as the true mastermind behind all the events from Season 18-till now (The Holograms, The Ads attempt to take over South Park, creating the divisive Star Wars: The Force Awakens the trolls causing world chaos, Mr.Garrison becoming president, and nuking Canada, etc.) and will explain his reason for doing all of this is to bring the world into complete chaos and rebuild it under his control and influence and tries to convince Kyle to join him.
Kyle refuses and threatens to expose Abrams for everything he did, only for Abrams to retort back that by trying to expose he will also expose his dad the infamous troll Skankhunt 42, thus destroying his family. Afraid of what JJ Abrams might do to his family he keeps quiet. However Kyles dad will overhear this conversation and believing Kyle is planning to expose him as the troll and will try to frame Kyle as the troll like he did with Ike. When noticing his dad trying to frame him as the troll, Kyle mentality snaps and murders his dad and destroy his house. Kyle will then come to believe that humanity is a lost cause beyond redemption and will join JJ Abrams in destroying the world to rebuild it under their control.
Together Kyle and JJ Abrams sews conflict throughout the world with Kyle trolling various countries into going to war with one another while JJ Abrams will create even more decisive movie to turn the people against each as well as use the President to nuke countries that he has referred to as shitholes. Likewise Kyle will make time to kidnap Cartman where he will subjugate to horrendous torture for all the things Cartman has done to him.
Meanwhile Heidi Turner has check herself in a rehabilitation clinic to change herself for the better. She will receive some sort of mental connection where Kyle can telepathically communicate with her and she will know about Kyles decent into villainy. Out of concern for Kyle, Heidi meets him somewhere only to learn that it was all a ploy design by JJ Abrams to lure Heidi into a trap. Fearing Heidi to be an interference to his plans, he orders Kyle to kill reminding him of all the mistreatment Kyle was given by her when she was a female Cartman.
However there was one flaw to JJ Abrams plan, as he didnt direct Star Wars: The Last Jedi, he doesnt know about a particular plot twist which Kyle exploits to kill JJ Abrams, his body guards, and usurp his position as Big Bad. Kyle then decides to continue Abrams plan anyway so kill that he deems corrupt and rebuild it under his own image and offers Heidi a chance to join him. When Heidi refuses Kyle attempts to kill her, and frames her for Abrams murder when she escapes. He also forces Heidis ex-boyfriend, Cartman, to work for him using his skills with the force to cull him into submission.
Wanted for murdering Abrams Heidi goes into hiding at South Park. Meanwhile Kyle pinpoints Heidis location and with the help of Cartman convinces President Garrison to send the U.S. Army to South Park using them as the reason people that are not white are living in America. Kyle leads the US army to South Park which the residents there barricade themselves to South Park Elementary. Heidi uses this opportunity to convince to people there, especially the students on how pointless this Gender War is and unite them together to face a greater enemy.
However Kyle and his forces close in at the barricade school, his little brother Ike appears before him. Enraged that his own brother would turn against, Kyle orders every one to fire at him. This however, does nothing to Ike so Kyle goes to confront him and demand why he would turn against his own brother, only for Ike to retort back saying he is no longer his brother. Kyle then finds out that Ike is using his own life force to create a force hologram to give Heidi and the rest enough time to escape the school. Using his last bit of strength Ike disowns Kyle as his brother and tells him that he has become exactly like their mother before dying. Season 22 ends with Kyle questioning himself on what he has turned to and if this is all really worth it.
Oh and which villain is Kyle suppose to emulate. Why Kylo Ren of course give their tempers and their names only differing one letter, Kyle and Kylo.
- Jossed. Kyle's remains a good guy throughout Season 22
Meanwhile, Kyle and Cartman will have a big fight over Heidi. Heidi will break off the fight and resolve the issue by leaving both of them in favor for herself, calling Cartman an asshole who will never be the friend she want and calling Kyle a pussy who will never be the lover she wants, just like Satan did.
Heidi will also resolves Cartman's constant harassment towards her by filling a restraining order against him.
Upon arriving at that era Kyle decides to expose his dad, Gerald, as Skankhunt42. This creates a time paradox where the girls decide not to initiate their school-wide break-up and the boys decide not break Cartman's electronic, meaning Cartman doesn't meet Heidi, and therefore they don't hook up. While Sheila decides to divorce Gerald for being the troll, Kyle is cool with that because he is able to receive solace for finally redeeming himself. Afterward Kyle finds Heidi at the bridge where she threw her phone in season 20. Heidi then notices Kyle before the credits roll leaving the scene at a Maybe Ever After.
- Jossed. Heidi is shown to be alive and well near the end of Season 22
- Jossed. She appears in "The Problem With A Poo" having lost all that excessive weight with no explanation.
- Jossed in "The Problem With A Poo" where Heidi is still attending South Park elementary.
- However it could be confirmed later on as she hasn't appeared at the school after the episode. She isn't seen with her friends in "The Scoots" nor among the evacuated kids in "Time To get Cereal", only making another appearance at the end of "Bike Parade" which doesn't take place at school. This seems more confirmed in season 23 where Heidi has yet to appear in school, she didn't even appear in the school assembly in "Let Them Eat Goo".
- Conformed, thought it's not one of the girls but is actually Mr. Hankey whose ever-growing obnoxious behavior causes him to leave South Park in "The Problem With a Poo". Fun Fact "The Problem With a Poo" is one of the only two episodes in Season 22 (the other being "Bike Parade") that Heidi makes an appearance. coincidence?
- Confirmed. She appears in "The Problem With A Poo" as a background character, just as she had been for years.
- Jossed: Cartman too busy finding out why Token didn't let him cheat on the math test, during the school shooting.
- Jossed. She appears in "The Problem With A Poo", but has been demoted back to her old background character role.
- The first episodes deconstruct Adults Are Useless by showing how people would realistically react to a town like South Park having adults like Randy Marsh and the fact they have a fetish for Murder Porn by deeming most of them to be mentally unfit to be parents.
- Stuff like PC Principal beating Cartman and Gerald being skankhunt42 will come to light.
- The final episodes will deconstruct Cartman's whole character and show how someone like him would be seen by a completely sane person leading to his arrest and eventual murder in prison.
- Jossed. Heidi stays a background character throughout all of Season 22
- Jossed. Heidi is shown to be alive and well in the Season 22 finale "Bike Parade", after ManBearPig's rampage.
- Jossed. Heidi doesn't really have any involvement in Season 22 remaining a background character. It's Jeff Bezos that becomes the Big Bad of Season 22
- Jossed. Bradly doesn't make any appearance in Season 22 aside from in the missing posters. It's Jeff Bezos that becomes the Big Bad of Season 22
Then there's the status of the other couples that broke up in Season 20. Nicole reveals that she's trying to make her relationship work with Token again. Plus, Stan and Wendy haven't interacted with each other at all in Seasons 21 and 22 but the video game, The Fractured But Whole which takes place during Season 21, heavily implies that they've gotten back together behind the boys and girls' backs. All of this evidence could possibly mean that like Stan and Wendy, Heidi and Kyle have gotten back together between seasons or in Token and Nicole's case, the two are trying to make their relationship work again.
- Confirmed when Scott Malkinson brings up his failed relationship with her in "Basic Cable" where Cartman compares girls and relationships to diabetes times ten.
The arc will also reveal the children's lives after their last encounter with the President. Stan Marsh reveals to have moved to a farm (as seen in Season 22) and is back together with Wendy, Kyle became book writer of the mystery and horror genres, Tweek became a drug addict believing the drugs will help him find a way to defeat the President, Craig broke up with Tweek because he couldn't stand his drug habits, Ike traveled back to Canada to help the survivors of the President's nuclear attack, Heidi reveals to have lost weight (as seen in Season 22) and has a new boyfriend, and nothing has changed for Cartman other than he's jealous of Heidi's new boyfriend, especially if that new boyfriend happens to be Kyle.
These children will see the President in their town again and decide to join forces once more to put an end to the Trump-esque monstrosity once and for all. Oh and Al Gore (or Justin Trudeau) will parody Maturin, The Turtle, and help the children stop the President for good
- Having all the children get drafted into the military by President Garrison, with no one batting an eye to it, and being shipped off to fight in a third world country.
- Another Coon and Friends episode (featuring Call Girl)
- The return of the Ginger Kids, with Red getting dragged into the conflict.
- An episode focusing on the girls of South Park elementary.
- Heidi Turner getting a Day in the Limelight episode about her life post-breakup.
- A proper conclusion of the Gender Wars with all the couples getting back together.
- An episode satirizing the Government shutdown.
- An episode satirizing colony collapse disorder (CCD) within bee populations and RoboBees replacing them.
- An episode satirizing China's social credit system.
- An episode based on South Park: Phone Destroyer, featuring costumes from the game.
- An episode satirizing Disney's acquisition of 21st Century Fox.
- An episode based on the Notre-Dame de Paris fire.
- An episode continuing Marcus' crusade against opioids.
- An episode dealing with sexual abuse allegations.
- An episode based on Butch Hartman's OAXIS Entertainment controversy.
- An episode about the illegal wildlife trade.
- An episode satirizing crazy BTS fans.
- An episode satirizing how Spider-Man won't be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe anymore.
- An episode satirizing crappy live-action remakes of Disney animated movies.
- An episode satirizing Peppa Pig (perhaps focusing on Ike?).
- A story arc talking about the forthcoming 2020 election.
- An episode satirizing the war between PewDiePie and T-Series.
- An episode talking about Minecraft's huge resurge in popularity as of 2019, and Fandom Rivalry with that of Fortnite.
- An episode satirizing the overuse of horror anthologies.
- An episode satirizing the people's reaction of Ash Ketchum winning a Pokemon league after 22 years.
- All of this is jossed for Season 23, except for the Disney-Fox merger. While not specifically focused on it, "Band in China" does mock Disney's expanding corporate empire. It also makes fun of China's government, but not the social credit system. The closest to the A Day in the Limelight episode for the girls is "Turd Burglars," which focuses on the mom characters.
Also tying into the other theory that Leslie Meyers will be Back from the Dead, Leslie is actually Alexa who took the alias Alexa and is discreetly manipulating people through Amazons' devices, while making Jeff Bezos an Unwitting Pawn in her own plan to make the town vacant for her kind to control. Given that be Leslie and Alexa are both voiced by April Stewart and what a Manipulative Bitch Leslie was in Season 19 (remember how Leslie said that if one plan fails another one will arise), it wouldn't be a surprise that Leslie as Alexa would come up with this complex plan.
- Jossed: South Park has been renewed for Season 24, 25, & 26 so Season 23 won't be the final season.
It might sound far fetched but it could be possible since Heidi pre-season 20 and Heidi post-season 20 have different appearances and personality. Pre-season 20 Heidi had no hat, was an Alpha Bitch, and showed disgust with being partnered with Eric Cartman in the episode Follow That Egg. Post-season 20 Heidi wore a hat, was a Nice Girl, and had no problems dating Cartman. Plus Heidi was among those who witnessed◊ Cartman's Moral Event Horizon crossing, why would Heidi go out with someone whose committed such a horrible crime.
The only possible explanation could be that an imposter, an Ad, had the original Heidi killed or trapped somewhere and then take her identity as her own. Now why would the imposter do that. Well she would have grown tired of working for the Ad's agenda and would want a life she can call her own even if that means stealing someone else's.
Now if the imposter chose the latter option, then the it might hold problems for the imposter Heidi as the original Heidi would return to South Park to claim the life that was stolen from her and lead an army of ads looking like the adults and children in the future, helping them take over the town. This could all be a Whole Plot Reference to the 2019 film Us, especially if this takes place in Season 23 which air on the same year.
Or, they could be an attempt to bring Saddam Hussein Back from the Dead.
- Jossed. Kyle and Cartman were able to escape the detention center on their own.
- My theory is that the episode will end with Status Quo Is God happening as per usual and to be expected in a show like South Park.
- Second theory is that they'll play him out recovering from it for the rest of the season, but next season start out as if nothing happened. My second idea is it's only mentioned in dialogue and not shown on screen of his recovery
- The first theory is confirmed; the second one is Jossed.
- Jossed. She does make a cameo appearance in the Season 23 episode "Board Girls".
- Confirmed. she makes one cameo near the end of "Board Girls".
- Jossed. She does make an appearance in "Board Girls" after Randy's bombing.
- Or they could surprise us and actually have Randy stay in prison till the next season starts.
- Confirmed about the former
- Confirmed about Mr. Garrison breaking Randy out of prison.
- The set-up could be that Randy will be paranoid that he caught it during his trip to China in season 23, and his attempts to quarantine his family will lead to Tegridy Farms going out business.
- Principal Victoria - She hasn't had any recurring roles since season 19, so they'll most likely kill her off in this season by making her a victim of the Coronavirus or something.
- Randy Marsh - Everyone hates him at this point.
- Wendy Testaburger - PC Principal will find out the whole ordeal behind Ms. Ellen's death and expell Wendy from school for killing a lesbian teacher and planting false evidence, which she was not aware of at the time. Considering how Wendy and Stan never got any significant scenes since "Oh Jeez", they might kill her off.
- Grandpa Marsh - Elderly are at high risk and is related to one of the main kids which will get the Marsh family aggressively quarantine.
- Gerald Broflovski - He's caused many of the problems in season 20 by posing as an internet troll named Skankhunt42. His crimes can only go unpunished for so long, and so now would be the perfect time to kill Gerald and let his Karma Houdini Warranty go void.
- Heidi Turner - Her last major role was in the season 21 finale "Splatty Tomato" when she broke up with Eric Cartman and ever since then Heidi barely has any role in the show only appearing sparsely in a few cameos. Similar with Pip, Parker and Stone will get tired of fans constantly asking them to bring her back and just kill her off instead. They'll likely have Cartman kill her as payback for dumping him.
- Token Black - It will be a reference to the George Floyd protests in the United States. Token will be killed by police somehow and causes a huge uproar, with people wearing the Token's Life Matters shirts again. The Whites will also appear and rant about how nobody cared when their white son Jason was killed by police (in season 23's "Season Finale"), further inflaming things, and President Garrison will hide from it all while playing toughguy on Twitter. (If not Token, then perhaps his father, or Nichole.)
- Token was shot but not killed. He is in the hospital and the police blamed it on COVID. It is likely the storyline could continue.
- As for recurring minor characters being killed off, a nameless recurring background kid with a red shirt was gunned down by the police.
- Confirmed: the correct answer was Mrs. Nelson
- Alternatively, Randy Marsh will run for president as the Joe Biden stand-in.
- Stan: Has SCP-187s power to see what something will become but without Power Incontinence, since literally saw everything as shit.
- Kyle: Is actually a [[Franchise/Superman Kryptonian]]. Unlike his High Jew Elf King magic, his Human Kite powers are depicted as actual Eye Beams and Flight in South Park: The Fractured but Whole, possibly indicating hes got them for real. Plus, Ikes adopted, so whos to say Kyle is also?
- Cartman: Super Intelligence, hes noticeably a Light Yagami-level planner in "Scott Tenorman Must Die", something no mere 4th grader should be capable of.
- Kenny: Born-Again Immortality, explicitly confirmed in "The Coon And Friends Trilogy."
- Butters: Reality Warper, confirmed in "Imaginationland" but has yet to fully harness it.
- Wendy: A "Phone Destroyer" much like the new kid.
- Jimmy: Super Speed, same reasons as Kyle (except not adopted).
- Clyde: Making Mosquitos do his bidding, hes one of the first students to discover hes powers, and built his Superhero persona around it.
- Token: Magical Negro, since one of his Phone Destroyer cards is him as a Witch Doctor.
- Craig: Is The Chosen One of a South American prophecy.
- Tweek: Super Speed, itd go with his energetic nature.
- Timmy: Psychokinesis.
- Bebe: Her breasts, they can make everyone obsessed with them and even talk!
- Pip: A Time Lord stuck on Earth, since hes British.
- The Goth Kids: Magic, Henrietta is an explicit sorceress in South Park: The Fractured but Whole and all four are Mystical-themed in Phone Destroyer.
- Kevin: is a Jedi, since hes so obsessed with the franchise.
- Bradley: "Mint and berries yet with a satisfying tasty crunch". Explicitly confirmed in "The Coon And Friends Trilogy."
- Scott: Sugar-activated Unstoppable Rage.
- Nichole: Bumblebees powers, due to looking similar.
- Heidi: Power Copying, due to her copying Cartman in Seasons 20-21.
- DogPoo: Garbagebending.
- Damien: Hes The Antichrist.
- Bridon: Broadway Force, a necessary power for a Troy Bolton Captain Ersatz.
- Gary: Religion Is Magic
- Ze Mole: Invisibility
- Gregory: Same as Pip.
- Leslie: She's a sentient advertisement.
- Seemingly jossed. We're getting a 1hr special on September 30. No word yet on if we're still getting a full 10-episode season, however.
As you may have noticed, the creators have a tendency to kill off or write off characters who they deem no longer funny, relevant or replaced by someone else, with this especially happening in the most recent seasons. They intended to kill off Kenny for real, being tired of his gag. They had killed Pip for real long time ago because Butters was a better Butt-Monkey. Officer Barbrady has been replaced by Harrison Yates and the police force, although he got heavily involved in an arc before getting written off. Principal Victoria has been replaced by PC Principal and also written off after being involved in an arc. Mr. Hankey was written off. Satan was killed for real. So was Jason White, a background character who's been around since the beginning and never got to do anything.
Now then, there are two topic that have a very high chance to be included in the next season - Coronavirus pandemic and Black/All Lives Matter (although they've already done episodes about racism). In case of the latter, Token or Nichole (or alternatively, at least one of their parents) may die to kick off the plot. Nichole would have higher chances since Token has been in the show for longer and has a more established personality.
As for COVID-19, there are a few elements of it they can use. We're reminded that hygienie is important, older people are at higher risk, and there was a craze to buy toilet paper. Therefore, potential deaths may be as a result of bad hygiene, being old, or Toilet Humor involving holding it in for too long because someone didn't get a chance to buy toilet paper. And who are the best candidates?
- Kenny: because They Killed Kenny Again. His death could be as a result of bad hygiene or lack of toilet paper (both could be attributed to his family being poor). He could be the first death that kicks off the plot or die later on. If there's a season-long COVID arc, he'll likely remain dead for the rest of the season, returning either in the finale or the next season. He might also survive, considering they rarely use this gag ever since Season 7, and there's a better candidate below:
- DogPoo Petuski: Another character connected to bad hygiene and another one whose death might kick off the potential arc. Like Jason White, he's been a background character since the beginning and never got to do anything. Furthermore, his character is obsolete. His design suggests he could be used for bad hygiene or poverty topic, but that's something that can already be done with Kenny, one of the main characters. Therefore, DogPoo also fits the pattern of pointless characters who can be removed from the show.
- Marvin Marssh: as one of the casualties among the elderly. He's pretty much the most important elderly in the show. However, he was the only Marsh not involved in the Tegridy Farms arc, which might mean he's been turned obsolete and therefore isn't needed in the show anymore.
- Kenny does die but not from COVID. He is gunned down by the militarized police. Token is shot, but not killed. Only hospitalised. Dogpoo and Marvin aren't even mentioned.
- Marvin is Jossed. He got his second dose in "Vaccine Special".
- Kenny does die but not from COVID. He is gunned down by the militarized police. Token is shot, but not killed. Only hospitalised. Dogpoo and Marvin aren't even mentioned.
- The show will have an episode about Karens, refusing to wear masks, causing a scene in public, going on racist rants, etc.
- Jossed, if the fact that we're getting a 1hr special on September 30 is any indication. Though the special may possibly all we will get in terms of South Park content this year.
- Jossed. She appears as a background character in "The Pandemic Special". She even got her hat back.
- Jossed for Token, he's seen alive in the Vaccination Special trailer.
- Of course, Cartman will ruin it. He'll try to be first in line for the cure, but Heidi gets a restraining order, so Cartman takes revenge by killing her, destroying all of her research, and framing Kyle. Initially, Kyle is indeed blamed and set to be executed, until President Biden finds out what's going on, and decides to shift the blame to Garrison, using his killing of the pangolin as an example. Kyle is exonerated, Cartman gets off scot-free, and Garrison finally faces the music for everything he did during his term.
- Very unlikely, considering 2020 will end soon.
- And... it's jossed.
- Jossed, he dropped the entire president role very quickly and cleanly.
- Confirmed, the Vaccination Special is set to release in March.
- however there could be a chance the writer wouldve forgotten about them or were ashamed of them due to how season 20 turned out. But yeah something has to be done about the member berries since they had a part in Garrison being president and what would they do now that Garrison isnt president anymore.
- Adding on to this, Gerald will start spreading misinformation about the vaccine as skankhunt42, only this time, Kyle will say something, causing the Gender War to come to a permanent end.
- Jossed, they never once appear and Garrison goes back to normal without any of their influence (or lack therof).
- Jossed, everyone lived.
- Also, Stan is Kyle's best friend, while Cartman is his Arch-Enemy.
[[WGM: There will be another special which focuses on the Delta Variant]]This seems very likely since the Variant is now the dominant strand of COVID, and forcing the staff of South Park to work at home again, where they would make another one hour special, possibly to replace the normal fall schedule, like they did with "The Pandemic Special" in 2020
