Buddha (शाक्यमुनि) is the founder of Buddhism and a member of the Super Best Friends, who first appeared in the Season Five episode, "Super Best Friends".


Buddha has blond hair in a bun. He wears a black beaded necklace and an orange robe. As of "200", Buddha has a newer appearance. His skin, hair, and robe are slightly darker in color and there are two yellow strands of fabric attached to the sleeve of his robe.


He is shown to be heroic, being a member of the Super Best Friends. This is further evidenced by him trying to help defeat David Blaine.

In the "200" and "201", he is shown to be addicted to drugs, evidenced by his cocaine-snorting activities which made Jesus upset at him. The "200" episode shows him doing his drug session in front of the Super Best Friends as well as Stan and Kyle to which Jesus furiously tells him "Buddha don't do coke in front of kids". He appeared again in the "201" episode wherein he does his drug session again and Jesus, already furious about this, orders him to stop as it was getting to be a problem wherein Buddha argues with him about pornography.

Powers and Abilities[]

He is said to have the power to turn himself invisible, but he's never shown to perform this. He also has the power of flight.



  • The scenes from "200" and "201" which depicted Buddha snorting cocaine made Sri Lanka ban the South Park series.
