Kelly is the mother of The New Kid, who appears in South Park: The Stick of Truth and South Park: The Fractured But Whole.


South Park: The Stick of Truth

Kelly, along with Chris and the New Kid, moves to South Park at the start of the game. Kelly suggests the New Kid go out and make some new friends, Chris then orders them to do this. The two then don't do much for the first 2 days besides grounding the New Kid when they get lost in the forest or don't come home at night. Unlike Chris, Kelly will allow her child to friend her unconditionally, claiming it will make them "seem more popular."

Defeat the Underpants Gnomes

When the New Kid is chasing the Gnomes, they find Chris and Kelly speaking to each other, worried about them. The two then make love, which can be heard throughout the walls. The New Kid meets up with the Warlock leader and a boss fight then commences upon the bed Chris and Kelly are making love on.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole

Chris and Kelly play bigger parts in the second game.


At many points in the game, the New Kid will have to meet up with The Coon, who will allow them to choose an additional superhero class and then revise their origin story. regardless of how the backstory is altered, the New Kid will always find that Kelly has been "fucked" by Chris. The Coon fails to understand this is a common thing that happens to all people and consider this the New Kid's "tragic" backstory.

Homeward Bound

Each day ends with the New Kid coming home to find their parents arguing with each other. Chris berates Kelly for giving information to the School counselor and the School Principal about the New Kid's gender and race after the talks. Chris is angry because he wants to keep the New Kid's real backstory secret. They attempt to hide their fighting when they notice their child is watching, and go into the bedroom to fight.

The Many Asses of Dr. Mephesto

When travelling through Mephesto's lab, the New Kid finds a room, where both Chris and Kelly are locked up. To proceed to the next room, the New Kid needs DNA from one of their parents. This involves either cutting off Chris's head or tearing off Kelly's arm, either of which will result in the victim dying. The New Kid then puts the head/arm in the scanner and can continue.


In "Farts of Future Past", the New Kid inadvertently farts themself back in time to their origin story. They enter their parents' bedroom, where, after seeing 2 versions of her child, Kelly reveals the New Kid's true backstory. She explains that, when she was younger, she made an Instagram account, and managed to get over 4 million followers from a single photo. Scientists kidnapped her and Chris, running experiments to discover the source of their powers. The two then fell in love and conceived the New Kid. They had to run away, moving from town to town, until they got to South Park. After telling the New Kids and the Coon this, they feel better and decide to live happily.


The skin color and hair color of Kelly depends on the skin and hair color of The New Kid. Kelly wears a green shirt and black pants. She was originally going to have a much different appearance.


Kelly seems to be the more lenient of the two parents. At the start of Stick of Truth, she suggests the New Kid make friends, while Chris kicks the New Kid out of the house. She, with Chris, grounds the New Kid when they are not home on time.


The New Kid

Kelly is a concerned mother to the New Kid, who often cares for the New Kid. She does not seem to get irritated by the New Kid's silent nature. Kelly is protective over her child, worried that people will find out about their background and eventually lock them up again.


The two's relationship was not majorly featured, but it's still demonstrated as loving each other. They also had a long sex scene throughout the quest "Defeat the Underpants Gnomes", further proving their love for one another.

In The Fractured But Whole, Kelly and Chris are seen fighting each other. When Mr. Mackey speaks to Kelly for clarification about the New Kid's gender identity, Chris berates her, worried people will find out the truth. This then continues until they argue all the time, not caring whether the New Kid sees or not. Even in The Many Asses of Dr. Mephesto when The New Kid has to make a decision of who to kill, the two yell at each other from across the room and each try to persuade the New Kid to kill the other. When they tell their child the truth, the two feel better and make up with each other.
