Best South Park Charactersozzydog12 South Park, where it snows every day. But who's the best character?
The Top Ten
Cartman is one of the worst human beings in the history of fiction. He's a narcissist and a sociopath, for starters. He'll screw over his friends, his family, and anyone else that gets in the way of whatever petty and insignificant goal has grabbed hold of his attention at any given moment.
And yet, against all odds, he's the most loathsome character we've ever loved. Whether it's his horrible voice, his petulant whining, or his brilliant business ideas -- "Oh Randy, you're breaking my balls here... You're breaking my balls, Randy. " -- there's stuff that ONLY Cartman can do. Only Cartman could feed Scott Tenorman his parents. Or get his mother arrested, or change the future of civilization so he can play the Nintendo Wii.
Cartman is that kid you hung out with - even though you hated him. Or he's that kid that you realize you hate when you're an adult and he's just a kid and man, you should cut him some slack. But some kids are already huge a-holes. At the same ...more
Cartman...where do I start... He's for sure a racist, selfish, narcissistic, bigoted, misogynist, anti-semitic, manipulative, sadistic, obese grade-A sociopath. But he's gut-bustlingly hilarious and is a borderline child prodigy with his intelligent, unique, strategic ways to achieve his goal. Without Cartman, South Park wouldn't be the same. He does the most offensive, amoral things to prove a point or to achieve for his own personal gain---no matter how degrading or ridiculous it is. Cartman is one of the most legendary fictional characters of all time. - UberHams
The classiest character, funniest kid, not for random and stupid remarks but for his style and intellect. He will get what he wants and he doesn't care what he has to do, to get what he wants - roblist
This kid is very messed up, racist, and would have been arrested, but we don't hate him for that. This show is aimed at adults, and every adult show deserves a character messed up character like Cartman or Brian griffin138 Comments
In the "Faith 1" episode, after Token has kicked Cartman's ass, it seemed as if way-too-kind Butters was going to help him up. Then he farts in Cartman's face saying, "F#&* you, Eric. " That was IT! Butters, You the man! - IgnoreThis
He's one of the best characters on the show--cute, innocent, and is the only child in South Park who actually acts like a child. Nobody can hate Butters. - UberHams
Butters is one of the reasons why I watch south park. He is so cute, sweet, innocent and just plain awesome. He is my 2nd favourite south park character tied with Kenny - UltraLunalaX
Cutest, sweetest, most naive94 Comments
Randy is hilarious! He would always come up with some zany retarded scheme to get what he wants! If you don't like Randy then you for sure, don't have a sense of humor. - UberHams
He's the best, around! No-one's ever gonna keep him down! He really is the best character, often used as the key character to highlight the satirical point of the episode, to brilliant effect. South Park simply couldn't work without him or cartman, but I think Randy has both the funniest and cleverist moments. Cartman appeals to the lower common denominator, but Randy is where it's at!
He has some memorable quotes and some funny scenes! - Limeyy
He is a really funny character - UltraLunalaX77 Comments
Kenny is simply adorable! One of the best characters on the show! I loved when in the movie he takes off his hoodie. It's great to finally see his face
Kenny is a really underrated character. He's an amazing big brother to his sister Karen. He's very boyish and cheerful. Hell, despite having practically inaudible dialogue, he's made me laugh more than any of the other characters.
Also, he's the only child character to have a super power, the inability to actually stay dead. I love that Kenny is aware of his power and takes it quite seriously, as he should. Everything about Kenny makes me very happy. Even his silly perverted mind.
He's underrated but he's one of the best characters on the show. Kenny is one of the few characters who actually cares about his loved ones and would even sacrifice his own life for them. Even though you can barely hear him most of the time, he's still funny as hell. Even though he dies half of the time he's still a optimistic character who doesn't let anything ruin his day. Kenny is the bomb. - UberHams
Undoubtedly the best character in South Park. - Kenny_McCormick174 Comments
KYLE'S JUST SO OVERLY CUTE! HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE HIM! WITH HIS ADORABLE VOICE, AND CUTE LITTLE JEWFRO!
Kyle should be higher.
He is always trying to do the right thing yet he always gets screwed up and I love him for that.
Kyle really had great growth.. When the show first began, Kyle actually was kinda boring, and was a less funny version of stan. But ever since season 5, he really changed as being more determined, standing up to Cartman because it's the morally correct thing to do, and just interesting and funny overall. Kyle is know a bright, able, courageous, and persistent kid who is hilarious when it comes to dry humor and sarcasm. He has great one liners, and is a funny character. I also love Kyle because I can relate to him well, with him always trying to do the right thing. I respect him so much when he gets humiliated by Cartman (who is hilarious, by the way) and is still able to do what's right. He is a phenomenal character and should be higher up on this list.
Should be higher on the list.
Such a genuine human being.
He's honestly one of the most mature and relatable character on the show. He's pretty calm, chill, and courageous but he can get pissed off due to he stupidity he has to deal with everyday. Almost everyone on the show has a good chemistry with him even Cartman and has zero enemies on the show (well his sister can be a jerk to him at times) Overall, he's a pretty selfless character who would be willing to help anyone in need. - UberHams
Stan plays the role of the most reasonable and level-headed character from the series. He may not be as outstanding as Cartman or his father Randy, but you've got to admit that his personality is really loveable. He's often described as the most sensitive out of the main four boys and the one with the most moral values.
It's always interesting to see how a normal person would react in ridiculous situations that occur throughout the show all the time. And that's when Stan has to face the stupidity and craziness. You can't not love Stan Marsh.
Stan is my least favourite character out of the 4 main characters of South park but I still like him. He is relatable and cool - UltraLunalaX
I feel I relate to Stan best, plus, him and Wendy are cute as f together. - OPJangoFett52 Comments
Chef was a really funny character who made the first few seasons 10x better than they already were. Rest in Peace, Chef.
Made everything better
He didn't deserve to die. - SanicWantsHisSandwich
He burst into the most inapropriate songs at the most random moments, and we love him for it. Isaac Hayes was number one actor on show, no question. Then there's the fact that in the first episode, he pulled the fire drill just to let the kids go save Ike. RIP, Chef.24 Comments
Yeah I'd say Garrison/Pres. Garrison deserves top 10 they have changed his persona a lot over various season whether there good or not is your preference. For the most Garrison having the equivalent personality of Sir Donald Trump is gold to me. - htoutlaws2012
He's Hilarious. First season hankey the Christmas poo, at the town meeting I laughed my ass off when he stood up at end of meeting said, "Can we also get rid of all the Mexicans" Mayor, "No garrison we can't get rid of the Mexicans.." That just cracked me up but there's so many more underrated great lines of his.
Very funny comments every so often. - ozzydog12
HE was the best character in seasons 1 through 3 but they ruined him in season 2016 Comments
"TIMMEH! " That's all I can say really - UltraLunalaX
Timmy! thats about all I can say. - ozzydog12
I love TIMMY I run around yelling TIMMY! But I really only like him because he yells his name everywhere and his mental handicapped Turkey GOBBLES!
Timmy is a rlly underrated character. People think it is boring that he can only say TIMMY! or LIVIN A LIE! And some other phrases but I always get excited when he is in an episode. He should appear more. I also love the Timmy-Jimmy relationship - kennymccormick216910 Comments
He's just funny, mmkay?
Best South Park character ever mkay, and don't know why he is so low on this list mkay.
I love him so much
I love Mr. mackey17 Comments
Funny stand up comedian, makes you laugh when he tries to tell jokes. - ozzydog12
There once was a maiden
Its so cute when he calls Timmy Tim-Tim
Jimmy is an amazing character
He's adorable and has a vast personality my favorite from the whole show
Fun fact! This character was the reason I started watching South Park! Thank you Tweek! - Limeyy
He is so funny and adorable - UltraLunalaX
He's okay but how is he even cute?
TWEEK IS THE MOST CUTEST THING EVER.
NEED MORE EPISODES OF THIS KID! Love him so much!
If I could vote for Craig twice, I'd be so happy
Craig's voice will be like Tony Stewart's
If Craig would be at the top, I'd be so happy.
Craig is definitely the best character, he flips off people and he's badass, plus he's actually a fan favourite with Kenny and he deserves the most love, I really love him a lot, he's my third favourite after Butters and Kenny, followed by Pip as fourth, but seriously, how could you not love him? Plus he's gay. If Craig would be number one in this list I'd be so happy33 Comments
Whenever I see Ike and the way he reacts to things I laugh out loud every time. And he's super cute too
Funniest simple character! Love how he's the only Canadian main character
Ike is a straight up boss. He has sex with his hot teacher and is smarter than most people in the town.14 Comments
An EXTREMELY underrated character. All of the characters in south park have shown growths in their personalities but I think Wendy has shown one of the most substantial. In the earlier episodes she was an obsessed at time mentally unstable clinger to Stan and the episode "Toms Rhinoplasty" Is like the Scott Tenorman must die before that episode was even made. It seems after mary kay bergman died and a more mature voice was given to her that her character really began to, mature. The episodes were she takes the main role usually involve her fighting a cause (usually for the greater good) and fighting a bunch of idiots really. Not to mention shes one of the only characters to ever get back at cartman successfully. When shes the main character shes just kind of the underdog you always root for.
She's okay in the older episodes. But I really cannot stand her anymore in the newer seasons and episodes.
She isn't in South Park enough. - SanicWantsHisSandwich
I really don't get it why so much hate for her. If it's because she broke up with Stan, well it's true she break up with Stan but although she said he and Stan can still be friends, I hate how stan acted like a jerk (it's obvious that Wendy's answers are mean), also, they're back together since the List when she realized that he has in a really awesome way. If it's because if because she has beat up Cartman, well you must HATE TOKEN TOO, because Token has also beaten up Cartman too. In both case, Cartman really deserve what he get. Overall, Wendy is highly underrated, she's my favorite character anyway.22 Comments
While Butters is a better character then Pip, the show shouldn't of just cast Pip to the side as he was in the first 3 seasons of the show one of the bigger side characters with the likes of Wendy. Instead of pushing him from the side and killing him off, the show should have tried to adapt Pip's character to the change. Besides the way Pip was treated and the way Butters was treated earlier in the show was different. Pip's abuse was physical and verbal however Butters was abused but more manipulated and cruelly taken advantage of because of his kind persona. Also, Butters has also been accepted by everyone now and is seen as the 5th main character and you can tell that the others do care about him, but Pip has never been accepted by anyone in the school. The closest friend Pip has had was Damien and that was for only 1 episode. Pip should be brought back into the show as he very popular with fans and the abuse he receives would not only provide interesting topics in the show (as ...more
Oh what jolly good fun. Why did they kill off pip. They should bring him back. Him and butters would make a good team
Pip is my favourite south park character, he is really nice, I hope trey parker and matt stone do the right thing and bring pip back to south park.

Don't forget to bring a towel!
You wanna get high?
A towel that gets high! how random! but OMG he kills my life, he is so god damn funny, it is not funny! lol
Completely off the wall stoner character in all honestly I didn't have much of a liking for. - htoutlaws201212 Comments
Oh what did it for me was when he unloads on the Jonas Brothers that was great, and hysterical. - htoutlaws2012
It was so funny when Mickey beat the holy crap out of nick Jonas on the episode "The Ring in season 13 episode 1
A pissed off Disney owner who literally beats the crap out of anybody who doesn't agree with him! Plus, his little "ha ha" between every sentence is perfect!
I like Mickey in general. Haha. But in South Park, he's so crazy and downright greedy that it makes him more likeable. Haha.5 Comments
Ultimately the best South park character! The only reason he's not number one is because he has few appearance! Cartman is number 2 for me
Herro welcome to city wok may I prease take your order? - eatmaxeat
AA Fackayou mongorians! I literally ran out of breath from laughing too hard! This guy is like every asian stereotype I've ever encountered in real life.
Lmao every episode he’s in just kills me; he’s so god damn funny! - Limeyy8 Comments
Kenny as Mysterion is so awesome. - UltraLunalaX
Best character ever.
Mysterion is so cute when he is saving Karen! He is one of the most mature characters and it always makes me sad how he hates his cure and how everyone else can't understand him. Definitely best character!
Awesome. He’s pretty cool, and the fact that he’s an alter ego to Kenny makes him even more cool! - Limeyy6 Comments
How this character is not higher on the list dumbfounds me, he should easily be in the top ten. All the episodes where he is the focal point are top drawer.
He is so funny especially the retarded offspring monkey - Ihateschool
He should be WAY further than this.
Jesus is good I don't know
Jesus get my vote. He literally dies for saving someone. And when he resurrect, he's the guy you want on your side.
I mean..come on guys, its Jesus.
Should be number one with Eric number two!1 Comment
T is for turtle
I need to go poopie
Chickenlover is the best episode. - thomwim
''Come with me if you want to leave.'' The dumb cop personality there's only one other show to pull it off, and of course Chief Wiggum from the Simpsons, but Barbrady is probably slightly more idiotic based on the episodes his given match. - htoutlaws2012
"IT'S COMING RIGHT FOR US! "
*gunshots* - Limeyy
''That there is a Rocky Mountain Black Bear, one of the last of it's kind...MY GOD IT'S COMING RIGHT TOWARDS US! '' (shoots bear)
''STOP THAT'S DANGEROUS, you're about to spill your beer.''
''Godammit, Ned, this ain't a whore house, it's a horror house.''
Personally I think Jimbo has the greatest one liners in all of south park.
''PC BRO! '' PC Principal is one of my favorite characters ever, the way his introduced, and than takes no crap from anybody a very intimidating, and fearless character in the series. - htoutlaws2012
Annoying (bust designed that way)... Proves a nice satirical point about PC culture, but I'm ready to see him taken out of the show int he most 'South Park' way possible
He's one of the funniest characters - venomouskillingmachine
Mr. Hat that wasn't very nice of you
Your drunk Mr hat - Ihateschool
What IS MR. HAT DOING DOWN IN 44? Mr. Hat is SO AWESOME! - invinciblemario99
A talking christmas poo, who first appeared in mr hankey the christmas poo, first season. Oh mr. Hankey the christmas poo, he loves me and I love you!
What would south park be without a little toilet humor. They have the the sex, the drugs, the rock and roll, so why not?
You can't not love the ruler of all things evil actually being a sweet, sensitive guy. I can't understand how he manages to tolerate Saddam. Great singing voice too.
Despite being the ruler of hell, he's an all-round nice guy with some relationship issues. I was rooting for him in 'do the handicapped go to hell? '
Unlike how Satan is portrayed as the evil, intimidating dark lord, South Park’s Satan is basically a gentle giant.
Nobody likes him period
You're right, I want him to be my pet. - Yona_db
Scuzzlebutt has a sweet character. (would be great if he or Damien, make another debut back in season 17)
I agree, it's better than damien or scuzzlebutt return in season 17.
Scuzzlebutt alive, I've seen alive at the end of the movie and at the end of the introduction. Some day he will appear again.7 Comments
You have to laugh at his smile laugh out loud
I can change is so funny - Ihateschool
He diserves more votes, I'm cereal!
Lets all make him happy and believe in man bear pig. He just needs a friend.
Every time he's on, it's hilarious. I'm super cereal
I'm super cereal guys, come on, man bear pig is real. Why won't anyone believe me?1 Comment

'' Bebe you have boobs... having boobs sucks.'' - DVD trailer of Season 5 - htoutlaws2012
Bebe is by far the best she stood up and has a great fashion sense
In my opinion she's the best character.
Such a funny chareter she was the first girl to stand up to cart man the funniest episode was when she got boobs I was laughing so hard when she made the boys freak out I love bebe1 Comment
My favourite character in the game "South park: the stick of the truth". Basically the anime princess version of Kenny. So adorable. - UltraLunalaX
How can you not love princess Kenny. I mean a cross dressing hooded Japanese princess... It's perfect
Princess Kenny should count as Kenny
Kenny is on this list 3 times?4 Comments
Why is he so low? Token's Life Matters! - Limeyy
How's he lower than memes and towelie
How appropriate to call the only black school kid tolkien.
Come on more people should vote token...TOKEN'S LIFE MATTERS4 Comments
She's okay I guess I mean there starting to give her more character development now but in a way where it put Cartman more over than anything. - htoutlaws2012
I like how she is now Cartman's girlfriends they are the cutest couple - Ihateschool
Before I talk about the third season of south park, I should quickly talk about why I like Heidi and why I think she's underrated.
While season 20 was disappointing, I didn't mind Heidi as a character and to see Cartman have a girlfriend was honestly sweet (even if it was bizarre at first).
By season 21, Cartman and Heidi's relationship became far more enjoyable and less obnoxious.
Probably the strongest reason why I like Heidi is that it adds depth to Cartman as a character, to see Heidi trying to keep their relationship going and Cartman just bringing it down was honestly quite sad yet it still got a chuckle out of me every once in a while.
Eric Cartman wasn't really in my top 5 until season 21 came around, he's the same evil psychopathic monster we've come to love in the first 19 seasons yet by giving him a girlfriend it added a different dimension to him that prevented his original personalities from getting stale.
For the FIRST time in south park, I actually found ...more
Smells like dead fish here... oh man, that is nastyy
They give me raging clues
Funniest characters ever can't wait for there return giving me raging clues

Terrance has a cute Canadian accent and funny toilet humor - Ihateschool
We. Want. More. Monei.
We want more money internet money to be exact - Ihateschool
I like his amesome personality and his loveable French ascent. Also because they call him the mole is amazing because it fits him.
Severely underrated. Stole my heart even with his limited amount of screentime. I really hope they bring him back!
