Butters is the boys' innocent little classmate. He is by far the most naive and well-natured of the 4th graders, and for this, he is often shit on. He's been forced to put balls on his chin, get liposuction, been locked in a bomb shelter for weeks, and dressed up like a dog with ninja star in his eye. Additionally, he is notorious for being grounded far more often than any other kid, often times for circumstances beyond his own control.
Despite his good nature, he isn't above joining in on bullying others, such as the time when he taunted Kyle for being last on the cutest boys list.
He briefly explored his feminine alter-ego as Marjorine. And he absolutely loves Bennigan's.
After being fired as the boys' 4th friend, Butters turned to his dark side and created the villainous alter-ego Professor Chaos. As Chaos, he teamed with his loyal companion General Disarray (Dougie) to help bring chaos to the world that shunned him.
You’re incredibly imaginative – and more than a little naive. Even though you’re perceived as a good person who always does what you’re told, you definitely have a dark side; it’s just a lot lighter than other people’s dark sides. People with Butters DNA are taken advantage of easily and grounded often.

Here's Butters' biggest design changes throughout the show's run.
Main Alter Egos
Alter egos that have appeared numberous times in-show and/or other official media.
Other Alter Egos/Outfits/Counterparts
Next to Cartman, Butter has the second most alter egos in the show. He has so many that some people think that he has a multiple personality disorder.
Aunt & Uncle
Butters has shown his love for the ladies many times. Whether it's the Kardashian sisters, being a pimp or having a Canadian girlfriend, Butters will always treat the ladies right. As of Not Funny, Butters is currently not into dating anymore.
Past Love Interests
While the foundation of Butters and Cartman’s relationship has largely been driven by Cartman’s selfishness and Butters’ kind, earnest desire to listen to his problems, comfort him after his failures, help him with any scheme he suggests and allow himself to be manipulated in unspeakable ways, the two have gradually the two boys have developed a genuine friendship over the years and Butters’ naivete seems to have invited Cartman to trust and confide in him in ways he rarely has with the other boys. Butters has picked up a number of habits from Cartman both positive and negative, including transphobia and misogynism, but has also notably pushed back on occasion and stood up to Cartman.
Butters' relationship with Kenny has been extremely close as well, with the latter often acting like a big brother towards him (despite being younger.) They both usually get along well, and Butters even drew him a picture of them in an airplane together when Kenny was dying. Their friendship truly evolved in "Going Native" though, when Butters admitted that Kenny's the only kid at school that has any dignity and isn't "fake or stuck-up." In the same episode, Kenny also helped him board his plane to Hawaii, and goes through thick and thin to help Butters get his Hapa Noa, so he'll return to his cheery self. Kenny can also be seen holding Butters' hand throughout most of the episode (much like he does with his younger sister, Karen.)
When he's not hanging out with his best friends, Butters can regularly be found hanging out with Stan, Kyle or Jimmy. All three have offered him advice on numberous occassions, and (for the most part) stick up for him when he's being bullied.
Recently, Butters formed a strong friendship with the local priest. They bonded over being outcasts at one point or another, and seem to enjoy each other's company immensely. Father Maxi vows to protect him, and all the South Park children, from fiends like the Catholic Cleanup Crew.
Butters has an extended group of friends that he hangs out with at school. He regularly catches up with them outside of school though, usually to see what crazy new thing has come to town, or to simply watch the newest Terrance & Phillip episode.
Although they've had their share of bad moments, Butters and Scott seem to generally get along well and have formed a friendship.
As Professor Chaos, Butters befriends Bradley (as Mintberry Crunch) in the Fractured But Whole DLC, Bring the Crunch.
Butters has a set of minor friends, who he shares a mutual liking to.
While their relationship is very rocky, Butters seems to be decent friends with his classmate, Wendy. She often tries to teach him right from wrong, and they're known to (rarely) compliment each other.
Butters has also found friends in his fellow Melvin, his accountabili-buddy, and his very brief Muslim classmate.
Butters met a bunch of colorful creatures in Imaginationland. From the Mayor, to the Lollipop King, to Snarf; not to mention the Council of Nine.
These characters usually interact with Butters exclusively at school. He seems to be on good terms with all of them, but doesn't have any special relationships with any of them.
Butters' relationships with these characters have never been quite clear, and his mutual feelings about them is usually up for debate amongst fans.

Butters and Professor Chaos are both playable characters in the XBLA game, South Park: Let's Go Tower Defense Play!. Butters is unlocked after level four. Professor Chaos requires a secret code to unlock. Butters and Chaos have different special abilities.
- Butters - tap dances in a circle killing anyone that come near him
- Professor Chaos - Calls down lightning electrocuting enemies.
As Court Paladin, it's his job to deliver the Wizard Kings' justice...and his mail. A noble and fair member of the Human faction, this Paladin also has the power to heal. Butters is a noble warrior of pure heart and mind. His holy power can smite the wicked and heal the wounded. And when his skills as a paladin aren’t enough, he also has the power of his alter-ego, Professor Chaos. Outside of combat, Butters can be commanded to heal injured allies.
- Born Victim - Butters is just so innocent he naturally makes people want to punch him. Enemies are twice as likely to attack him in combat.
- Hammer of Justice - Butters hurls his hammer at a single melee target, making them Pissed Off. Great against armor too.
- Healing Touch - Butters steels the New Kid’s resolve, restoring HP.
- Hammer of Storms - Butters smites all enemies in a column with massive shock damage.
- Professor Chaos - Butters transforms into the evil genius Professor Chaos and unleashes a random devastating attack.
Behind The Scenes
- Butters has been around since the pilot episode (Cartman Gets An Anal Probe), although he was mostly a background character, named Puff-Puff, for the first two seasons. His first breakout role was in the Season 3 episode Two Guys Naked In A Hot Tub. He's been a staple in South Park ever since...
- Butters was not a named character in South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.
Below is a selection of kick-ass behind the scenes content, exclusively from South Park:
Character Art: Butters
This pose of Butters' reaching for his precious required a
special pose. Check out this old-school character design.
Character Art: Butters
Any alterations to a character, like this
filthy version of Butters, requires new art and poses.
From AWESOM-O (802)
Character Art: Suppository
Check out the old-school Character art created for this infamous scene.
From Butters' Bottom Bitch (1309)
Controversy Over Butters' 1st Kiss
This episode created a lot of fan controversy because -- despite what all the boys say -- Butters actually HAD been kissed by Rebecca (the home-schooled girl) back in Season 3's "Hooked on Monkey Phonics". Granted, she had just become a slut...
Character Art: Butters' Hair
Butters’ cute little combed-over hair from "Butters' Bottom Bitch" required totally new character art. You can see this art in action during the beginning of the episode, when he's preparing for his "first kiss".
Production Art: Pimpin' Signs
All the props and signs in the show are first designed by our Art Department, like these motivational pimpin’ signs. Do you know what I am saying?
Butters The Pimp
According to Matt and Trey: "There’s just nobody funnier to say really raw shit than Butters, because he’s just so cute. And obviously he doesn’t know what he’s saying."
Storyboard: Classroom Scene
Check out this storyboard from the classroom scene, where Butters is trying to convince Wendy she should be puttin' that mouth to work. The arrows usually indicate movement:
From Let Go, Let Gov (1701)
Butters' Pajamas Art
Even the slightest change to a character -- like Butters' pajamas and "prayer" pose -- require entirely new storyboards and designs from the art department.
Storyboard: Butters' Bedroom
After the script is written, the first step in production is having our Storyboard department create "boards". They used to be drawn by hand, but they are all done digitally now.
From "Black Friday" (1707)
Production Art: Round Table
This round table was a specialty prop. As you can see, the boys "wireframes" were used here for placement.
From A Song of Ass and Fire (1708)
Production Art: Butters' Sword Poses
This sword fight required special battle poses for Butters.
Production Art: Tracking Shot
Animators use cues within the storyboard for camera movement, like this tracking shot:
From Go Fund Yourself (1801)
Character Art: Butters' Redskins Sweater
From The Cissy (1803)
Character Art: Butters' Tutu
Butters got to rock a special "tutu" outfit for this montage…
From The Magic Bush (1805)
Character Art: Butters
This shot of Butters in bed required new poses.
- Butters' first line was "Me too!" in "Roger Ebert Should Lay Off the Fatty Foods". His voice, however, sounded very different from how it sounds nowadays, and a lot more like Stan's.
- Butters is revealed to have had a girlfriend from Michigan named "Carrie", as mentioned in "Toilet Paper".
