Title Sequence
Episode Description
Season 7-11
  • Decapitated by a pair of scissors.
  • Reduced to a skeleton after getting touched by Death.
Season One
Episode Description
"Cartman Gets an Anal Probe"
  • Blasted by the Visitors' UFO, trampled by a herd of cattle, then run over by Officer Barbrady's police cruiser. (Kenny was still alive after being shot and trampled, it was Barbrady's car which delivered the fatal blow.)
  • His body gets whacked by Stan and he gets his head pulled off by Kyle. His body is then eaten by rats. After Kenny's body is eaten, Kyle says "Rats." In the unaired version of the episode, Kenny shows up alive at the end of the episode, after Kyle says that they are running out of friends.
  • Kenny seemingly gets crushed by a large volcanic boulder ejected from the volcano. Kyle says the "Oh my God! They killed Kenny!" line in this episode, but Kenny comes out from behind the boulder and says he's okay, only for his arm to catch fire and the boulder to roll over him, actually crushing him this time.
  • He is later seen alive after the lava travels through the trench, only to be shot by Ned when he drops his gun on the ground.

Note: This is the first episode where Kenny has died more than once. The "You bastards!" line is also not said at any point in this episode.

"Weight Gain 4000"
  • Gets crushed by a prop during the school play. The Mayor then exclaims "Oh my God" but the rest of the catchphrase wasn't said.
  • Shot by Mr. Garrison when trying to shoot Kathie Lee Gifford, which launches him into the air, and he is impaled on a flag pole. Both "Oh my God, they killed Kenny!" and "You bastards!" are said entirely by Kyle in this episode, as Stan is not present at the time.
"Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride"
  • His arms are ripped off by two Middle Park Cowboy players before a third tackles him, decapitating him in the process. The "Oh my God! They killed Kenny!" line is said by Kyle in this episode.
"An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig"
  • Knocked into a microwave oven with a chair by a mutant clone of Stan, and the microwave turns on, cooking him to death. Kyle says the "Oh my God! They killed Kenny!" line to the mutant clone, and then he screams "You bastard!" at the microwave.
  • Killed when Death touches him. Kyle yells "Oh my God! They killed Kenny!" and "You Bastards!" at Death.
  • Crushed by the MIR Space Station at the beginning of the episode. Revived as a zombie via Worcestershire sauce embalming.
  • Cut in half with a chainsaw by Kyle to end the zombie curse. The "Oh my God, they killed Kenny!" line is said by Kyle, though "they" is changed to "I", reflecting the fact that it is he who kills Kenny this time. Kyle says to himself "You bastard!" when he should've said "I'm a bastard!". This is the same episode where Stan says the line as usual (when the MIR space station crashes upon him earlier in the episode) making this the only time both Stan and Kyle have said the line in the same episode. Sometimes the line is cut.
  • Rises from his grave again at the end of the episode, but is immediately crushed by a falling angel statue and then by a crashing airplane. Stan and Kyle are not there to say their usual lines, as they had left with Cartman to enjoy their Halloween candy. If killing his zombie counts, then this episode has the most Kenny deaths, until the record was equaled in the season 14 episode "Coon vs. Coon & Friends".
  • Turned into a duckbilled platypus by Damien, and then shot by Jimbo after Jesus and Satan's match near the end of the episode.
"Starvin' Marvin"
  • Attacked by mutant turkeys; loses an eye in the attack.
"Tom's Rhinoplasty"
  • Pierced by an Iraqi sword carelessly swung by Ms. Ellen, and impaled to the wall of the third grade classroom. Stan then exclaims "Oh my God! She killed Kenny!"
  • While Mecha-Streisand is wrecking the town, Kenny dodges several things that would be the perfect cause for his death. Instead, it comes when he finds himself in a playground and begins to play tetherball with himself. He is scooped up by the rope, tied to the pole, and asphyxiated.
"Cartman's Mom is a Dirty Slut"
  • Dragged onto train tracks by a go-kart and run over by a train. Later, a video of the incident (recorded by Marvin Marsh) is shown on America's Stupidest Home Videos, and wins the $10,000 grand prize. Stan: "Oh my God! They videotaped killing Kenny!" Kyle: "You bastards!"
Season Two
Episode Description
"Cartman's Mom is Still a Dirty Slut"
  • Kills himself sacrificially with electrocution while turning on a hospital generator in an attempt to revitalize Dr. Mephesto.

Note: At the beginning of the episode, he reappears from thin air and when Dr. Mephesto is shot, he says Stan's line of "Oh my God, they killed Mephesto!", and Kyle says "You bastards!"

  • Car tips upside-down and crushes him, but the sunroof is open and he steps out; flies off a swingset into brick wall, but survives; gun misfires and shoots Kenny's arm, but narrowly misses him and gets his sleeve; during the parade in the credits, a tree falls and crushes Kenny, finally killing him. The first two times that Kenny is thought to have been killed, Stan says, "Oh my god, they killed..." They then show Kenny still alive and Stan finishes with, "Oh, never mind." The third time, however, he says, "Goddammit!" Nothing is said when the tree falls on Kenny during the ending credits.
"Ike's Wee Wee"
  • Falls into an open grave and is crushed by the gravestone beside it when it crumbles and topples over. Kyle says "You bastards" without a care, due to the revelation that his brother, Ike, was adopted, and Canadian. After Ike's bris, Kenny is in the classroom, in his seat, but after Mr. Garrison speaks, Kenny's seat is empty.
"Conjoined Fetus Lady"
  • Killed by an overpowered dodgeball throw from a Chinese opponent. Kyle, in pain, weakly says the "You bastards" line.
"The Mexican Staring Frog of Southern Sri Lanka"
  • Torn apart by two audience members of Jesus and Pals during a riot on the show.
"Summer Sucks"
  • In a flashback to when he was in kindergarten (or preschool), he was blown up by a firecracker which he held for too long. Stan: "My gosh kill Kenny!" Kyle: "Oo bastards!"
  • Crushed by the bleachers at Stark's Pond when a large firework snake grows out of control and breaks the bleachers' support.
"Chef's Chocolate Salty Balls"
  • Trampled by a crowd leaving a movie theater. Stan and Kyle are not present; instead, a moviegoer says, "Oh my God, I found a penny!", and his friend replies, "You bastard!"
  • Close to the end of this episode he is laughing with everyone, but flatlines due to a contracted fatal case of chickenpox.
"Roger Ebert Should Lay off the Fatty Foods"
  • His head explodes as a result of a seizure caused by the intensity of a planetarium demonstration when Stan and Kyle examine the control booth. Stan: "Oh my god! We killed Kenny!" Kyle: "We're bastards!"
  • Trampled in a mosh pit in Cartman's tree house. Cartman is the one who says "Oh my God, they killed Kenny!" and a passing Kyle exclaims "You bastards!" at the treehouse before moving along.
"Cow Days"
  • Pierced by the horns of the bull Cartman is riding.

Note: When Cartman falls from the bull and lies still, Kenny mumbles "Oh my God, they killed Cartman."

"Chef Aid"
  • Ozzy Osbourne bites his head off. The regular post-death line is changed to "Oh my God, Ozzy Osbourne bit Kenny's head off!". However, he is spontaneously revived moments later and can be seen standing next to Stan and Kyle in the crowd. Whether this is his immortality coming into effect sooner than usual or just a continuity error is open to debate. This is a reference to two incidents where Ozzy bit the heads off of live animals. One was a dove at a contract signing, and the other was he bit the head off a bat in concert.
  • Drowned and mauled by Stan's evil goldfish. The trademark post-Kenny-death catchphrase is not said since Stan and Kyle are talking about the fish.
"Merry Christmas Charlie Manson!"
  • Shot dead by police while attempting to surrender himself, Charles Manson, and Kyle. Charles Manson: "Oh my god! They killed the little orange-coat kid!" Kyle: "You bastards!"
  • Killed (squashed "like a bug") by a derailed mining cart containing underpants. Amusingly, the boys say their usual speech rather quickly and emotionlessly (The speech comes out "ohmygodtheykilledkennyyoubastards.") and don't seem very saddened by his death, since all they cared about was finishing the paper for the Prop 10 meeting. As Stan and Kyle continue, the Underpants Gnomes look in awe at what just happened and interrupt the boys' speech with "Holy shit, we killed your friend!"
"Prehistoric Ice Man"
  • Caught in the conveyor belt in front of the prehistoric ice man exhibit. Stan says the first line as per usual, but Kyle does not say his line and instead says, "What? I'm not talking to you," since they are fighting over the ice man's name.

Note: Earlier in the episode, Cartman chases Kyle down a hill and into a pit where the prehistoric ice man is. Though he is still alive, Stan says, "Great job, Cartman, you killed Kyle!" Kenny adds, "You bastard!"

Season Three
Episode Description
"Rainforest Shmainforest"
  • While talking with Kelly, Kenny gets struck by lightning. Stan and Kyle then say their usual lines. When Kelly asks who "they" are, Stan and Kyle respond with "You know. They" and "They're bastards." Kelly proceeds to do CPR on Kenny and successfully revives him.
"Spontaneous Combustion"
  • Spontaneously combusts while holding in a fart. Because of the shocking and suddenness of the death, there is a long pause before the usual lines are said.
"The Succubus"
  • Dies in an unknown manner while waiting for Chef at the bus stop, but miraculously revives at dawn.
  • Smashed to death by the succubus. Cartman, whose eyes are bandaged due to a botched eye surgery, asks "What? What happened you guys? Is Kenny okay?" His corpse (presumably from his first death in the episode, since his body was totally pulverized in the second death) is later taken to Cartman's optometrist at the end of the episode, claiming that Kenny is an organ donor and wants to donate his eyes to Cartman.
"Tweek Vs. Craig"
  • Gets thrown into a pile of rusty nails. Mr. Adler picks up his dead body and sees his dead lover in Kenny's hood. Stan and Kyle look on and comment on how messed up it is.

"Sexual Harassment Panda"
  • Pulled by a magnet into a giant fan, as part of a demonstration given by misfit mascot Jimmy, the "Don't Hold On To A Large Magnet While Someone Uses A Fan Nearby" Falcon.
"Jewbilee" / "Cat Orgy" / "Two Guys Naked in a Hot Tub"
  • Sacrificially smacks his head into the conch shell that Moses is trapped in, opening it and saving the Jews. The usual post-death lines are not said, partially due to Stan being absent in this episode.
  • Note: Due to Kenny's death in "Jewbilee", he does not appear in "Cat Orgy" or "Two Guys Naked in a Hot Tub", due to these episodes taking place at the same time.
  • Has a seizure due to the Chinpokomon video game and spends most of the episode catatonic; bursts at the end of the episode, revealing that he was filled with rats.
"Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery"
  • Destroyed by a snow speeder while wearing an ED-209 costume.
"Hooked on Monkey Fonics"
  • Beaten against everything in Cartman's bedroom by Fonics Monkey. Stan says "Oh my God, Fonics Monkey killed Kenny!" Instead of Kyle's "You bastard!" line, Cartman says, "You're damn straight he did." because Kyle wasn't present. However, due to a continuity error, he is later seen alive with Kelly at the dance.
"Starvin' Marvin in Space"
"The Red Badge of Gayness"
  • Burned to death by a US National Guard warning flare. However, Stan's grandfather Marvin shouts "You bastards!" instead of Kyle, to which Kyle angrily shouts "Hey!"

"Are You There God? It's Me, Jesus"

"Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000"
  • Crushed by bricks, meant to be a Cartman test dummy, after flying off a sled. Stan says "Oh my God we killed Kenny." and Kyle replies "We killed Kenny?" Stan replies in a businesslike manner "We killed Kenny. We're bastards." Though he had already died, the boys still included a drawing of him when giving their presentation to the governor.
"The Tooth Fairy Tats 2000"
  • Thrown into a river with cement shoes by Loogie's goons, however, the river is too shallow for him to sink, so during the credits, he begins hopping toward the shore.

  • Shot accidentally by police in an Elián González-style raid in Romania.
"Timmy 2000"

"Cherokee Hair Tampons"
  • Crushed by a piano being lowered to the ground from the top floor of a building beside him, just after angrily leaving for home while Stan is very upset and sobbing because Kyle may die of kidney failure unless he gets one of Cartman's kidneys. Before leaving he says in his muffled way: "You never seem to care when I die!" After Stan cries some more and talks about how Kyle is going to die, Kenny says, "Now that does it! I have had enough of this bullshit! Screw you, Stan, I'm going home!" a line which is usually delivered by Cartman.
"Chef Goes Nanners"
  • Explodes from gas buildup when a massive dose of antacid tablets (thought to be mints) is exposed to water that he drinks. Everybody present laughs and applauds, and Stan says, "That was a good one."

  • Flattened by an elevator just prior to Fingerbangs performance in the shopping mall.
"Fourth Grade"

"Trapper Keeper"
  • Smashed against a wall by Cartman's bedroom door when the monstrous posessed Cartman bursts out of his bedroom. Kyle is unable to say, "You bastard" (saying "You ba---") before he flees the Cartman house.
"Helen Keller! The Musical"
  • Crushed by a fallen stage light meant to kill Timmy's dysfunctional turkey, Gobbles. Stan says the line as "O mah Gah! Dey gil Genny!", given that the play he is in revolves around Helen Keller.

Season Five
Episode Description

"Cripple Fight"
  • During Gloria Allred's speech near the end, a giant bird carries Kenny away in its talons and presumably eats him. However, due to a continuity error, he is seen alive during the Mountain Scout meeting at the end of the episode.
"Super Best Friends"
  • Drowns himself in the Reflecting Pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial as part of a cult's mass suicide. Stan says his catchphrase 3 times, using it to try and find Kyle in a massive crowd a la the game Marco Polo. Kyle replies twice.
"Scott Tenorman Must Die"
  • Laughs himself to death after seeing Cartman's "I'm a little piggy" video when Scott Tenorman shows it to the entire town. His spirit is then seen coming out of his body, still laughing (similar to Who Framed Roger Rabbit). When the episode is first aired, his spirit was not shown.
"Terrance and Phillip: Behind the Blow"
  • Dies of blood loss after getting all of his limbs hacked off with a meat cleaver.

"Osama bin Laden Has Farty Pants"
  • Killed alongside his Afghan counterpart by an air-strike. Stan's and Kyle's Afghan counterparts say “Ya Allah! Koshtaen Kayvano! Tol dayoos!”, which translates to “Oh God, they killed Kayvan! You bastards!” in Dari Persian. Kenny is also seen talking with Kyle, Stan, and the Afghanis in the background, although his alter ego is not.
"How to Eat with Your Butt"

"The Entity"
  • Shot in the head by a dimwitted airport security officer who finds a toenail clipper in his pocket during a security scan, and mistakes him for a "terrorist". The trademark post-Kenny-death catchphrase is not said. Instead Kyle's Jewish cousin "Kyle" yelled "Oh Jesus!"

"Best Friends Forever"
  • He is hit by an ice cream van and brought to Heaven but is resuscitated and kept alive on a feeding tube (à la Terri Schiavo), which is removed and he finally dies. It's worthy to note that this is one of the very few times (including the movie) that Kenny continues to appear on-screen and play a significant part even after he is killed.

Note: Stan and Kyle's catchphrases for when Kenny dies are referenced twice in the episode. Outside the hospital where Kenny is in a vegetative state, Stan and Kyle lead a call/response protest where Stan shouts, "Don't kill Kenny!" while Kyle and the crowd respond, "You bastards!" The second is when they finally decide to let Kenny die after disrespecting his wish from his will of not being seen in a vegetative state on TV. His spirit returns to heaven, the archangel Michael responds gleefully, "Oh my god, they killed Kenny!" before returning him to lead the armies of Heaven.

The normal lines are not used; Stan simply replies, "What the fuck?"
Season Sixteen
Episode Description
"I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining"
  • Dies of boredom while riding on a boat going 5 mph. Other factors that led up to his boredom include ziplining and horseback riding with tour groups. This death is seen in a live-action sequence and is the only death to do so. Kyle says the usual line when Kenny dies. Cartman, thinking Kyle was the one who suggested ziplining, retorts "No, not they, YOU! Look at what your ziplining idea has done! You killed Kenny, YOU're the bastard!" Kyle replies that he thinks it was Cartman's idea and adds "YOU killed Kenny, you bastard!" When Stan reveals that ziplining was his idea all along, Cartman says "You...
