Kevin Stoley is a member of the boys' class and first appears in the Season One episode, "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe".


Kevin was initially a nameless, background character who appeared in the boys' classroom and made background appearances alongside other fourth graders. He has his first speaking role in "Conjoined Fetus Lady", where he is referred to as "Kevin" by Stan. Despite being animated the same as the white children, he is revealed to be Chinese-American in the episode. Kevin's most notable traits are his Star Wars and Star Trek obsessions, seen in "The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers", "Fatbeard" and "Black Friday". Kevin is described by Trey Parker as the kid who is "always screwing up the whole show".[2]

He even plays his first ever major role in "Fatbeard", where Cartman recruits Kevin and a few other classmates to become pirates and travel to Somalia, and he is critical to taking control of the French vessel that the crew commandeers for the rest of the episode proving they are worthy pirates.

While previous appearances had depicted him as a Star Wars fan who was often playing by himself, in "Black Friday" and South Park: The Stick of Truth he was now seen as a Star Trek fan and is shown leading the "Federation Kids", a clique of kids who play Star Trek-themed games, including Dougie O'Connell.


He is first referred to by name in "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig" by Mr. Garrison as "Casey", but is referred to by Stan in "Conjoined Fetus Lady" as "Kevin". After that, he has consistently been referred to as "Kevin". Also, in "Lice Capades", when Cartman was attempting to reenact the blood test scene from The Thing, one of the blood containers was labelled "Kevin", confirming that is his name.

During the thirteenth season, a character named Kevin Stoley was referred to off-screen in "Fishsticks" and it was revealed later in "Fatbeard" to be this Kevin.

In "My Future Self n' Me", it was vaguely suggested that his last name was "Brooks", as two adults seen were referred to as Mr. and Mrs. Brooks, with a man dressing similarly to Kevin and agreeing to pose as their son; however, since, he has not been called that name but is officially known as Kevin Stoley.


Kevin wears a sky-blue jacket with a red collar, red gloves, and dark blue trousers. His hair is black, and the style is similar to that of Stan's. The light blue color of his jacket explains why in the ancient scripts he was written as "Sky".

He is supposed to be of Chinese descent, but he appears not to have the "slanted" eyes stereotype featured in many of the Asians in the show. This is likely because he was conceived in America, and so appears as a Caucasian. It is also possible he is only half-Chinese, presumably with a Chinese mother and European-descent American father, as "Stoley" is not a typical Chinese name. This backs up Chef's statement in "Conjoined Fetus Lady" that people should not be teased or discriminated on account of their race or religion, but that it's okay to tease people on account of their nationality. Trey Parker's original script for "Conjoined Fetus Lady" refers to him as looking like "any other kid, except he has black hair." However, his parents as seen in "My Future Self n' Me" and "T.M.I." do not look Chinese, and the episode "City Sushi" implies Tuong Lu Kim and Junichi Takiyama to be the only Asian people in the town, although Lu Kim is later revealed to not in fact be Chinese.

In terms of attractiveness, Kevin is ranked #9 on the rigged list for the cutest boys, created by the girls in "The List".

Kevin's personality is little-known, but he is known for his Sci-Fi obsession, which he consistently annoys other characters (mainly Cartman) with - in "The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers" he is wearing a Stormtrooper mask while meeting with the other children in their Lord of the Rings outfits, and in "Fatbeard" he brings along a green lightsaber instead of a sword as a member of Cartman's pirate crew. Kevin also has a tendency to ruin the moment for the other children, usually with a Star Wars reference. This will usually exasperate his classmates, but Cartman in particular, who will often respond with, "Kevin, god damn it." or "Kevin, Jesus Christ." An example is in South Park: The Stick of Truth, where he references Star Trek in an irrelevant situation, "Let us charge our shields and use photon torpedoes to vaporize the Klingons!" and Cartman responds, "Kevin, god damn it, every fucking time Kevin, god fucking damn it seriously." This could imply that Kevin isn't only a fan of Star Wars, but movies in the sci-fi genre in general. In the entire "Black Friday" trilogy, he plays "Spock" from Star Trek, and in South Park: The Stick of Truth he is also seen in the same attire.

There is a possibility that gaming might be one of Kevin's hobbies, in "Best Friends Forever" Kevin was lined up outside a shop to get a PlayStation Portable, with several other children. Also, in "Make Love, Not Warcraft", it is shown that he is trying to help defeat the high levelled player, though it is impossible to tell which character he is playing as. It would not be odd if Kevin liked gaming, as he loves Star Wars.

It was mentioned in "Conjoined Fetus Lady" by Kevin that he's from America but his parents are from China.


The Brooks

Mr. and Mrs. Brooks (presumably Kevin's parents) and the hired Kevin decoy.

In "My Future Self n' Me", a couple known as the Brooks hire a man vaguely resembling the Kevin character (who has the same sky-blue/red color scheme and similar hairstyle) to keep their son out of drugs by using him as a "future self" decoy. Although the child is referred to as Kevin, it is unsure if "Kevin Brooks" and Kevin were intended to be the same character as the animators tend to reuse similar-looking models for different characters. The same parents reappear in "200" and "201" in crowd scenes and with the other parents in "T.M.I." which seems to confirm them as Kevin's parents. These characters are called into question as Kevin himself is never seen with them. As seen with characters like Jimmy Valmer, Clyde Donovan, and Token Black, Parker and Stone have been known to change or forget characters' last names, meaning these could be Kevin's parents and his name was originally Brooks, but later changed to Stoley.

In South Park: The Stick of Truth, the player can visit the Stoley Residence and see a picture of Kevin with parents different than those seen in "My Future Self n' Me".

Kevin's exact relationships/friendships are virtually unknown due to him only making a handful of speaking appearances, and he is implied to be unpopular, but in "Insheeption" he is shown sitting at lunch with the main boys and there are a few characters he is particularly often seen within the background.

Red McArthur

During early seasons, Kevin and her were often animated together, sitting together at lunch for most of the first four seasons including during Damien Thorn's attack in "Damien", and in "Sexual Harassment Panda" where they trade fruits. They're also seen together in crowd scenes, talking in "Gnomes" before class starts, and shown at the movies together in South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.

During "Hooked on Monkey Fonics" he is seen alone at the dance near her while she dances with Token. However, since the first four seasons the two only occasionally appear together in newer episodes such as "Lice Capades", in class in "Fatbeard", and arguably "Super Fun Time". They were together on Wendy's debate team in "Chef Goes Nanners", Red was also one of the girls hitting on him in "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset".

In "Skank Hunt" it is revealed that the two had been in a relationship for an unspecified period of time prior to their break up. Kevin is notably shocked and can be seen weeping in the hallway staring at Red's note at the end of the episode.

Bradley Biggle

During Seasons 9 to 13, after the lunch room was re-designed, Kevin was usually seen eating and talking with Bradley in a table near the cafeteria doors, and in "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society", along with Francis and Timmy. They are also seen together in "Lice Capades", where they are the two boys who hold back Kenny during his trial, as well as being the ones to remove his hood. When Bradley was formally introduced in the "Coon 2: Hindsight" story arc, his given personality was also similar to Kevin's - in fact, a Star Wars-esque poster is seen in Bradley's bedroom.

Timmy Burch

Kevin is seen hanging around with Timmy, Bradley, and Francis in "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society" and later is seen talking with Timmy, along with Jimmy and Pip, in "South Park is Gay!" The two have seldom been seen together since, but it is of note Timmy's special character design causes him to rarely be seen in the background.

Eric Cartman

Like everyone else in the school, Kevin likely despises Cartman, however he has only shown it once in "Breast Cancer Show Ever" where he cheers for Wendy and is seen quite pleased when Cartman is knocked on the ground. Despite this, Kevin has actually aided him on a few occasions. Cartman greatly despises Kevin openly. He had no qualms about accepting Cartman as a leader on numerous occasions, meaning either he is a person who likes to follow orders more than give them, is too passive to fight back, or he trusts Cartman to some extent. In "Fatbeard" Cartman calls the pirate crew meeting at his house, with Kevin expressing surprise. It's unknown if Kevin joined the pirate crew by choice. Cartman is annoyed by Kevin's love of Star Wars, as shown in "The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers". However, in "Tweek x Craig" Cartman is seen hugging Kevin, though Kevin does not return the gesture.

Jason White

"Holy crap, dude, look at Butters!"

Kevin and Jason were first seen together in "Marjorine". They were later seen standing together for the national anthem in "Wieners Out". They were both at first concerned at what Butters was doing, but later on they took part in his movement. This implied that they were friends until Jason's death.


  • Out of the three other characters named Kevin, Kevin Stoley is the only one who continues to appear consistently.
  • Kevin appears in the hallway, during the field trip in "200" and at lunch in "Insheeption" and "Crème Fraiche" but never in the classroom in the fourteenth season.
  • Matt and Trey describe Kevin in the commentary for "The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers". They cite him as "always ruining the show" for the other children.
  • Kevin suffers from motion sickness, which is seen in "Fatbeard".
  • There is a background character that looks almost identical to Kevin, except he has brown hair.
  • Cartman says "Kevin, god-damnit" when he seems annoyed by him.


Despite having played a major role in only one episode, "Fatbeard", Kevin has made reoccurring appearances as a background character in South Park since Season One, and he has had several speaking roles, his first being in "Conjoined Fetus Lady".

Kevin is abundantly seen in the background of Mr. Garrison's classroom, however this is not the case in Season Fourteen, though he can still be seen in the hallways and in the canteen, or in the playground. During the Seventeenth Season, Kevin's role as a background character arguably changes to a supporting character, as he is seen consistently in episodes "Black Friday", "A Song of Ass and Fire", and "Titties and Dragons".

South Park: The Stick of Truth

Kevin Stoley appears in the game as a minor character. He can be found in his bedroom, where he gives the player a side quest which requires finding his dad's iPad. He is also recruited by the humans and elves to participate in the siege on Clyde's fortress, where he once again ruins the moment with a Star Trek reference.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole

The New Kid can request Kevin to follow them on Coonstagram (2 followers required). Otherwise, he can be found in his room interacting with a virtual reality set.
