With season 20 coming, Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s South Park remains one of the longest-running and culturally beloved sitcoms of all time, animated or not. The show that not only helped put Comedy Central on the map, but has started several different pop culture catchphrases and memes, South Park is also one of the few shows that remains as relevant and irreverent as it was in its inception, and shows no signs of slowing down.

With that in mind, there are more than a handful of great characters, both main and supporting, that have graced the TV screen in the show’s multi-decade long run. While there are more great than not, here are just ten of the best characters that Stone and Parker have ever conceived on the program.
Before the countdown can continue, I will list just a few of the characters that, while great, just didn’t quite make the cut. Here are just some honorable mentions, from worst to best: Ned Gerblansky, Sexual Harassment Panda, Jesus Christ, Satan, Saddam Hussein, Kenny McCormick, Big Gay Al, Jimmy Valmer, Tuong Lu Kim (a.k.a. City Wok Guy) and Marvin “Grandpa” Marsh.
With that out of the way, let’s countdown the top 10 characters on South Park.
