They’re the iconic residents of this little mountain town. Welcome to and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Best South Park Characters.

For this list, we’re looking at the most iconic and popular characters from across this juggernaut of adult animation.

#10: Ike Broflovski

The black sheep of the family as it were, Ike is Kyle’s adopted brother from Canada. As a result, he gets the same visual treatment as the rest of the Canadians in the South Park-verse with beady eyes and a seemingly disjointed flopping head. It’s not all bad, though, since the younger Broflovski happens to be quite the genius. Even if he can’t pronounce all his words yet, he’s still shown to have a sharp mind, is always on hand to help his older brother and once saved the princess of Canada. He also somehow managed to end up in a sexual relationship with Ms. Stevenson. Not bad for someone still in kindergarten.

#9: Timmy Burch

He can’t say much more than his name and is bound to a wheelchair, yet this handicapped student is probably one of the most successful in all of South Park. He became a sensation as the leading member of the rock group, Timmy and the Lords of the Underworld, not to mention he set up a highly profitable taxi cab-like service; pretty much putting Phil Collins and Uber to shame. Despite his disabilities, Timmy has become a prominent and equally respected member of the boys, often helping them out in their various misdeeds. It’s probably down to that award-winning smile.

#8: Jimmy Valmer

From one physically challenged individual to the next, this 4th grader originally started as nothing more than a rival for Timmy. However, Jimmy really came into his own as the series went on. In spite of suffering from cerebral palsy, Jimmy’s handi-capable personality has made him a recurring comedic icon in South Park. He often comes up with the dirtiest jokes, he’s oddly charismatic, and is probably second only to Cartman when it comes to the list of crimes he’s committed. Heck, his remedy for getting awkward boners on stage was to have sex with a prostitute named Nut Gobbler. Keep it classy, Jimmy.

#7: Kenny McCormick

Poor, poor Kenny. While things may have changed later on in the series, this muffled member of South Park’s most famous quartet is most well-known for one thing and one thing only: dying in every single episode. As a result, he’s been crushed, shot, decapitated, killed by celebrities, killed by autoerotic asphyxiation, killed by oral sex, killed by having his heart replaced with a baked potato… the list goes on and on. While he and the Grim Reaper started to take a bit of break as of Season 6, he’s more than proven his worth in the realm of the living thanks to an awesome Batman impression.

#6: Kyle Broflovski

The resident Jewish kid of the group, Kyle has often been the voice of reason when it’s hit the fan throughout the years. Not that it does him much good… As the sometime friend, sometimes nemesis of Cartman, the two often find themselves in heated exchanges whenever the latter is up to no good. While he’s ultimately a good boy with a strong head on his shoulders, he still tends to be emotionally impulsive. As a result, he often finds himself in all kinds of awkward situations like Imaginationland and the HumancentiPad.

#5: Mr. Garrison

South Park Elementary is home to a whole slew of teachers who are a little… out there. However, one who has ultimately gone through the most changes, for better or worse, is Herbert Garrison. He started out as a homosexually repressed adult who couldn’t tell the difference between molestation and love. Then he went through a sex change and ended up with Richard Dawkins as a lover, only to get his penis reattached and essentially become Donald Trump. Well… at least we can say he’s had an interesting career.

#4: Stan Marsh

Like Kyle, Stan stands as one of the few responsible kids in South Park. As such, he’s often challenged by the likes of Cartman and whatever wave of crazy hits the town that week. One could also call him the most emotionally complex of the group, especially when it comes to serious social issues like bullying and whaling. Above all else, however, he’s just a boy in love. It’s just unfortunate he can’t get lovey-dovey with his girlfriend Wendy without projectile vomiting all over her. But hey, at least he’s great at jacking it in San Diego.

#3: Butters Stotch

Speaking of sensitive, here’s a fan favorite who has become a central character. Butters is probably the nicest kid you could ever hope to meet. With a big heart, bigger imagination, and overwhelming desire to help people, it’s that very nature that’s led him to be manipulated by the likes of Cartman and the rest on frequent occasions. It hasn’t stopped him from trying to look on the sunny side of things, however. Hell, he’s so nice that he managed to become the most well regarded pimp in South Park!

#2: Eric Cartman

He’s rude, he’s racist, he’s foul-mouthed, he’s sexist, he’s vengeful, he’s easily offended, he’s selfish, he’s a coward, and he’s a liar. Undoubtedly, this little fat boy from a little mountain town in Colorado might just be the most despicable character ever conceived. Yet… we can’t bring ourselves to hate him. Cartman is so outrageous in his schemes and antics that he more often than not ends up making us laugh the most, even when he does horrendous things like killing a guy’s parents and turning them into chili. Besides, it’s not like he doesn’t get his comeuppance every now and again.

Before we reveal our number one pick, here are a few honorable mentions.
- Wendy Testaburger
- Chef
- Mr. Mackey

#1: Randy Marsh

We can say without a shadow of a doubt there has never been a father quite like Randy. While it’s easy to see that above all else he loves his family and strives to be a role model for Stan, he has accumulated quite the list of “accomplishments” over the show’s run, all of which are of a… questionable nature. He purposefully got himself testicular cancer, he forced a Virgin Mary statue to bleed on him, he has the world record for the largest crap, and he has a secret life as the singer Lorde. Again, there’s no dad quite like Randy.
