Best South Park Characters

South Park, where it snows every day. But who's the best character?

The Top Ten

1 Eric Cartman Eric Theodore Cartman is one of the main characters in the animated television series South Park, created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and voiced by Trey Parker.

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

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

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.

Because without him the show wouldn't be funny he's the best character in the whole show

2 Leopold Butters Stotch

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!

Honestly, Butters is one of the most stable and sensible people in South Park; which is saying a lot, seeing as he is a 10-year-old. Compared to many of the other characters, he's a breath of fresh air. He keeps things funny and interesting, but he's not so obnoxious and overbearing like some other characters. Butters is one of the most iconic characters in South Park. His trademark is child innocence and ignorance. In all these weird ass adventures he gets caught up in, he's still positive and optimistic. In my opinion, he's a blinding ray of sunshine in the dark of the other South Park characters. That's what makes him so special, and makes him one, if not the, best character in South Park. You can't change my mind.

Who's the cutest South Park character ever? Everyone knows it's Butters!
Butters: That's me!

Butters is the the man, so lovably naive, you'd have to be evil not to love him.

3 Randy Marsh

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!

Definitely most evolved character in the show since his debut.

I'm not chugging beer I'm tasting a flight of gluten free German lagers with a French wine pairing. It's called a smorgesvine and its elegantly cultural.

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.

4 Kenny McCormick Kenneth "Kenny" McCormick is a main character in the animated adult television series South Park, along with his friends Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, and Eric Cartman.

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.

Kenny, though you can't understand him half the time, he is so sweet and cute you can't help but love this guy. When I found that he was Mysterion I was so happy and that he got a bigger role than he normally does. I wish Trey and Matt would give more attention to this little guy.

Although he dies very often, and isn't exactly given as much attention as the other three main characters, I feel Kenny has a lot deeper character than meets the eye. On the outside, yes he's adorable and continues to make us laugh at his constant perverseness.

Yet, if we look closer we can see he's shown to really show compassion for his friends, he does well as a protective older brother, and we can see how much he hates and feels about his curse. I especially love the more recent episodes where Kenny is no longer so much as a "prop" and more like an actual character. It really shows that Kenny has feelings and it really makes you rethink all the times he's died and how he's had to relive over and over.

Really Kenny is a very interesting character, and a very cute one at that. ^ ^

He dies in almost every single episode in Seasons 1-5 compared to Season 7-present where he rarely dies.

5 Kyle Broflovski Kyle Broflovski is a main character in the animated television series South Park. He is voiced by and loosely based on co-creator Matt Stone.


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.

He really grew into his own character, and excels in that area

Kyle is basically the ONLY reason I watch South Park. Honestly, it gets on my nerves that most of the fandom prefers the show's humor more than its moral nature. We need morals, and with that being said, Kyle would be a perfect leader! Also, I'm surprised people call him a hypocrite compared to Cartman. And when he saves Cartman from something, he has proper reasons. Cartman has only saved Kyle for his own SELFISH motives. And even though Kyle's often thought of as the least popular of the four boys (which is a shame), people still call him OVERRATED. Like WHAT THE HELL?! With that fact, he's clearly UNDERRATED! People really need to check their facts and realize that we all need a Kyle Broflovski in our lives!

6 Stan Marsh Stanley "Stan" Marsh is a main character of the animated television series South Park. He is voiced by and loosely based on series co-creator Trey Parker. Stan is one of the show's four central characters, along with Kyle Broflovski, Kenny McCormick, and Eric Cartman.

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.

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.

Stan is reasonable, caring, and adorable. In more detail though, I like Stan the best because he actually cares about all of his friends, though it's not always shown and he does sometimes mark Cartman off as evil (but who really doesn't? Anyone who doesn't recognize Cartman as the (loveable) jerk is blind). I especially find his sensitivity about animal issues cute and nice -- and Stan makes so many good points about humanity and society in general. Stan also has great interaction with characters that don't get much love in both the series and in reality. I really like him, and agree with how Cartman made him the hero in his bloody Christmas story. Stan really is the hero of the show.

This guy, is some one who I thought was the best. He never get the life he wants, it just like he's kinda like us. Human

7 Chef Jerome "Chef" McElroy was a cartoon character on the Comedy Central series South Park who was voiced by soul singer Isaac Hayes.

This guy has the information and songs, so remember there's a place for everything and it's college. Also having sex needs to be at 17.

I loved chef I wish he was still on south park. Chocolate salty balls is the best south park song of all time. Its a shame the guy that voiced him died.

Chef was a really funny character who made the first few seasons 10x better than they already were. Rest in Peace, Chef.

Chef is like real cool! Like esp when he says overly libido sorta stuff all the time, never anything else! So funny! Hey and also like when he says "hey kids how you doing'? " and they say "bad" all the time!.. That's seriously hilarious!

8 Mr Garrison

He's the gayest character I have ever seen, first he was a guy, then a girl, to a guy. Every time he changed his sexuality to gay

Mr Garrison is a troubled indevidual I don't care if I misspelled it. But, he's one that best characters.

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.

9 Mr. Mackey

Mkay he’s the most unique yet most simple character on the show mkay

Best South Park character ever mkay, and don't know why he is so low on this list mkay.

I love him so much

Don't do drugs, drugs are bad, mmkay? If you do drugs, then you're bad...

10 Jimmy Valmer

To me, Jimmy is just an over all likeable character. He isn't mean spirited, has good humorous moments, and is just a interesting charater to watch.

Funny stand up comedian, makes you laugh when he tries to tell jokes.

Its so cute when he calls Timmy Tim-Tim

Super under-rated character. Although disabled, he's hilarious and sometimes badass! Jimmy always has something that makes me laugh or puts a giant smile on my face

The Contenders

11 Timmy

Timmy! thats about all I can say.

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

He should get a spin off

12 Craig Tucker

If I could vote for Craig twice, I'd be so happy

Craig is awesome and he's cute as well he's my second favorite character after kenny and tied with Tweek.

Craig is such a mature, chill guy. He's very logical so he usually thinks things thru instead of feeling them, yet he's the sweetest around Tweek.

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 happy

13 Ike Broflovski

I love that he like pewdiepie, that's the only reason I upvoted him

Whenever I see Ike and the way he reacts to things I laugh out loud every time. And he's super cute too

Ike is a straight up boss. He has sex with his hot teacher and is smarter than most people in the town.

Funniest simple character! Love how he's the only Canadian main character

14 Tweek

Tweek actually has pretty interesting personality and also is a good example of anxiety. Despite he's jittery paranoid and seems to be scared of everything he's really brave and is able to protect his friends. Tweek also is just funny and cool character to watch
love this crackhead

Tweek is a great character he's my second favorite after kenny and tied with Craig and he's cute as well

He is freaking beautiful. That goddamn spazzy peice of yes. How can you not like this coffee addicted crackhead.



15 Mickey Mouse

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.

Oh what did it for me was when he unloads on the Jonas Brothers that was great, and hysterical.

16 Tuong Lu Kim, a.k.a. City Wok Guy

Herro welcome to city wok may I prease take your order?

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

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.

He's an ill-tempered, hilarious racist that really has an issue with "Japanese Dogs."

17 Wendy Testaburger Winifred "Wendy" Testaburger is a fictional character in the animated television series South Park. She is best known for her on-again, off-again relationship with her boyfriend Stan Marsh, and being more intelligent and mature than most children her age, which is utilized by her activism and feminism. more.

Her relationship with Stan is one of the most endearing part of the show

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.

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.

She's okay in the older episodes. But I really cannot stand her anymore in the newer seasons and episodes.

18 Mysterion

He's cute because he's kenny and the the best character tied with kenny

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!

I was having a little trouble picking and so I just picked Mysterion because I love Mysterion. So, anyway, yeah Mysterion is pretty awesome. Plus, he's adorable

I can't enough of this little kid knowing its kenny so friken cute

19 Pip

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.

Pip is my favourite south park character, he is really nice and I hope trey and matt will do the right thing and bring pip back to south park.

20 Jesus Christ

The fact that South Park made him so normal, it adds to the hilarity to his character

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!

21 Officer Barbrady

Chickenlover is the best episode.

He's stupid

T is for turtle
I need to go poopie

''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.

22 Jimbo Kern

He's literally the most underrated character ever.

''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.

23 Clyde Donovan

He is just yes. I enjoy his just random commentary and how he is pervy like Kenny, he also doesn't seem to fully hate cartman. I enjoy seeing clyde in south park I like his character in general.

"The blood is not on my wiener its on Clyde's! "
-Eric Cartman Season 16
Bebe to Kyle "It was fun while it lasted but we have to break up
Kyle says "Ok... "
Bebe goes to Clyde and Clyde says "Yeah Bitch it"

93? And I thought he was one of the most popular

Clyde is the best SP character!

24 Towelie

Don't forget to bring a towel!

A towel that gets high! how random! but OMG he kills my life, he is so god damn funny, it is not funny! lol

how hot would you like yor cheng sauce?

Towelie is the funniest character. He's the typical stoner in his own world.

"You're a towel! "

"I have no idea what's going on".

25 Al Gore

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?

Half-Man, Half-Bear, and Half-Pig, I'm Super Cereal
