Episode title Description
Opening credits
  • In season one and season twelve onwards, Kenny doesn't die in the theme song.
  • From seasons two to four (up to Do the Handicapped Go to Hell?), Kenny is killed by Death, who touches Kenny upon finishing singing his lines (although he doesn't look dead because he blinks and looks up as he dies).
  • From the rest of season four to season five (up to Kenny Dies), he goes through many clip deaths played at warped speed. He gets electrocuted (Cartman's Mom Is Still a Dirty Slut), he explodes from the antacid tablets he ate and water he drank (Chef Goes Nanners), he gets struck by lightning (he doesn't actually die) (Rainforest Schmainforest), he gets shot to death by a patrol (Quintuplets 2000), and his body bursts (rats crawl out of his body) (Chinpokomon).
  • Season six, which has a completely different look, does not feature Kenny getting killed since he is "permanently" dead. Instead, Timmy sings without getting killed.
  • From season seven until season eleven, Kenny sings his lines while being assembled by animation director Eric Stough, but Stough accidentally "kills" Kenny by cutting his head off rapidly with scissors. Each season has the background tweaked with a new clip.
  • During the syndication opening, he is killed by Death with his "touch of death" and is reduced to a skeleton with a flash.

Season 1

(Stan is the one who says "Oh my God! They killed Kenny!", while Kyle says "You bastards!")

Episode # Episode Title Description
101 Cartman Gets an Anal Probe
  • Blasted by an alien space ship, 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 who delivered the killing 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.
102 Weight Gain 4000
  • Crushed in the school play by the Native American Hut. Most likely he "died" in the play. The next reply was from the Mayor, "Oh my God.." but the rest of the saying wasn't said.
  • Shot by Mr. Garrison when trying to shoot Kathie Lee Gifford, which launches him into the air and 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.
103 Volcano
  • Crushed by a large volcanic bomb ejected from the volcano. Kyle says the "Oh my God! They killed Kenny!" line in this episode, but Kenny comes out from behind the volcanic bomb and says he's okay, only for his arm to catch fire and the volcanic bomb to apparently roll over him; 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. The "You bastards!" line is not said at any point in this episode.
104 Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride
  • Arms 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.
105 An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig
  • Knocked into a microwave oven with a chair and cooked by a mutant clone of Stan. Kyle says the "Oh my God! They killed Kenny!" line to the mutant clone, and then he screams "You bastard!" at the microwave.
106 Death
  • Touched by Death. Kyle says "Oh my God! They killed Kenny!" "You Bastards!", in this episode. Coincidentally, Kenny's father dies as well.
107 Pinkeye
  • Crushed by Mir 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!" Interestingly, 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 a zombie counts as "death", this would make "Pinkeye" the most fatal of all of Kenny's episodes, until the record was equaled in the season 14 episode Coon vs. Coon and Friends.
108 Damien
  • Turned into a duckbilled platypus by Damien and then shot by Jimbo after Jesus and Satan's match.
109 Starvin' Marvin
  • Attacked by mutant turkeys; loses an eye in the attack.
111 Tom's Rhinoplasty
  • Pierced by an Iraq sword carelessly swung by Ms. Ellen. Stan then exclaims "Oh my God! She killed Kenny!"
112 Mecha-Streisand
  • 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 tied to the pole and asphyxiated.
113 Cartman's Mom Is a Dirty Slut
  • Dragged onto train tracks by a go kart and crushed by a train. Later, a video of the incident is shown on America's Stupidest Home Videos. Stan: "Oh my God! They videotaped killing Kenny!" Kyle: "You bastards!" Note that Kenny appears again out of thin air in "Cartman's Mom is Still a Dirty Slut," only to be fatally electrocuted.

Season 2

Episode # Episode Title Description
202 Cartman's Mom Is Still a Dirty Slut
  • At the beginning of the episode, he reappears from thin air and when Mephesto is shot he says Stan's line of "Oh my God, they killed Mephesto!", and Kyle says "You bastards!"
  • Kills self sacrificially with electrocution while turning on a hospital generator.
203 Chickenlover
  • Car tips upside-down and crushes him, but the sunroof is open and he steps out; flies off swing 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, "Goddammnit!" Nothing is said when the tree falls on Kenny during the ending credits.
204 Ike's Wee Wee
  • Falls into an open grave and is crushed by a gravestone. Kyle says "You bastards" without a care, due to the revelation that his brother, Ike, was adopted and Canadian. Then after Ike's bris Kenny is in the classroom, in his seat, but after Garrison talks Kenny's seat is empty.
205 Conjoined Fetus Lady
  • Killed by an overpowered dodgeball throw from a Chinese opponent. Kyle, in pain, weakly says the "You bastards" line.
206 The Mexican Staring Frog of Southern Sri Lanka
  • Torn apart by two audience members of Jesus and Pals during a riot on the show.
207 City on the Edge of Forever
  • Killed by a "big, black, scary monster", but the scene as shown in a flashback has it delivering ice cream instead of taking Kenny away.
  • Run over by the Fonz's motorcycle in a flashback. When the bus fell off the cliff and into ice cream, he was still on the bus. (Most events in this episode are part of Stan's dream, so Kenny doesn't actually die)
208 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 bastard!"
  • Crushed by the bleachers when a firework snake grows out of control.
209 Chef's Chocolate Salty Balls
  • Trampled by a crowd leaving a theater. Stan and Kyle are not present; instead, a moviegoer says, "Oh my God, I found a penny!", and his friend replies, "You bastard!"
210 Chickenpox
  • Close to the end of this episode he is laughing with everyone, but flatlines due to a contracted fatal case of chickenpox.
211 Roger Ebert Should Lay Off the Fatty Foods
  • Head explodes due to 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!"
212 Clubhouses
  • Trampled in a mosh pit in Cartman's tree house. In a special twist, 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.
213 Cow Days
  • Pierced by the horns of the bull Cartman is riding.
  • When Cartman falls from the bull and lies still, Kenny mumbles "Oh my God, they killed Cartman."
214 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.
215 Spookyfish
  • Drowned by Stan's evil goldfish. The trademark post-Kenny-death catchphrase is not said since Stan and Kyle are talking about the fish.
216 Merry Christmas Charlie Manson!
  • Shot dead by police while attempting to surrender. Charles Manson: "Oh my god! They killed the little orange-coat kid!" Kyle: "You bastards!"
217 Gnomes
  • 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 "ohmygodyoukilledkennyyoubastards.") 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 I think we just killed your friend!"
218 Prehistoric Ice Man
  • Caught in the conveyor belt in front of the prehistoric 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 man's name.
  • 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 3

Episode # Episode Title Description
302 Spontaneous Combustion
  • Spontaneously combusts at the beginning of the show due to withheld flatulence. Because of the shocking and suddenness of the death, there is a long pause before the line is given.
303 The Succubus
  • Dies in an unknown manner while waiting for Chef at the bus stop, but miraculously revives at dawn.
  • Smashed to death by 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.
304 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.
305 Jackovasaurus
  • Killed by a bear while impersonating a deer, distracting Cartman.
306 Sexual Harassment Panda
  • Pulled by a magnet into a giant fan.
309 Jewbilee
  • Sacrifices himself to open the conch shell that Moses is trapped in, saving the Jews. The usual post-death lines are not said, partially due to Stan being absent in this episode.
311 Chinpokomon
  • Gets a seizure from the Chinpokomon video game and spends most of the episode catatonic; explodes at the end, revealing that he is filled with rats.
310 Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery
  • (In the credits) Destroyed by a snow speeder while wearing an ED-209 costume.
312 Hooked on Monkey Phonics
  • Beaten against everything in Cartman's bedroom by Phonics Monkey. Stan says "Oh my God, the monkey killed Kenny!" Instead of Kyle's "You bastard!" line, Cartman says, "You're damn straight he did.", because Kyle wasn't present. That scene is similar to the Chimp Attack that happened 9 years and 3 months after this episode aired.
314 The Red Badge of Gayness
  • Burned to death by a US National Guard warning flare. However, Stan's grandfather says "You bastard!" instead of Kyle, to which Kyle angrily shouts "Hey!"
315 Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics
  • Crushed by a chandelier during a song.
316 Are You There God? It's Me, Jesus
  • His insides explode due to the pressure buildup from a tampon stuck in his anus.
317 World Wide Recorder Concert
  • Dies from massive defecation after playing "the brown note". He appears at the end on the bus - whether this is a continuity error or intentional is up for debate.

Season 4

Episode # Episode Title Description
401 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 "Yep, 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.
402 The Tooth Fairy Tats 2000
  • Shown with cement shoes in a river; however, the river is too shallow for him to sink, so during the credits, he begins hopping toward the shore. After a few hops, he falls into a concealed trench in the water and drowns. The lines of Stan and Kyle are not heard but Timmy does ride past saying "timmeeehhhhh" in his usual fashion.
403 Quintuplets 2000
  • Shot accidentally by police in Elián González-style raid in Romania.
404 Timmy 2000
  • Bashed in the face with a frying pan by Cartman due to Cartman's Christina Aguilera hallucinations. Stan and Kyle deliver the catchphrase in an unusually relaxed soothing manner due to having overdosed on Ritalin.
406 Cartman Joins NAMBLA
  • Crushed by an ambulance after Stewart is loaded therein.
  • Earlier in the episode, he is also killed in a dream by his newborn alien-like brother. His father says "Oh my God, it killed Kenny!" and his mother shouts "Bad baby."
  • His parents have another child, which is born dressed in an orange hoody, just before the credits and name him Kenny (in honor of his 'dead' brother); his father comments that this must be the 50th time this has happened and his mother specifies that it's the 52nd because this is the 52nd time Kenny has died.
407 Cherokee Hair Tampons
  • Crushed by a piano 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's it! I have had just about enough of your bullshit. Screw you guys, I'm going home!" a line which is usually delivered by Cartman.
408 Chef Goes Nanners
  • Explodes from gas buildup when a massive dose of antacid tablets (thought to be mints) is exposed to water. Everybody laughs, and Stan says, "That was a good one."
409 Something You Can Do With Your Finger
  • Flattened by an elevator just prior to performance in the shopping mall.
410 Do the Handicapped Go to Hell?
  • Struck by bus (revealed to survive in Probably)
412 4th Grade
  • Dragged to death by Timmy's wheelchair while attempting to fix it à la Speed. Stan: "Well now who didn't see that coming." Yet near the end, he makes a cameo appearance and then disappears before the scene ends
413 Trapper Keeper
  • Smashed against a wall by Cartman's bedroom door when Cartman bursts out of his bedroom. Kyle is unable to say, "You bastard" (saying "You ba---") before he flees the Cartman house.
414 Helen Keller! The Musical
  • Crushed by a fallen stage light meant to kill Timmy's dysfunctional turkey, Gobbles.
416 The Wacky Molestation Adventure
  • Sacrificed at "Carousel"; not shown on screen. Linda: "What is it?" Mark: "It's a boy, they... killed him." Linda: "The bastards!"
417 A Very Crappy Christmas
  • Run over by car. Kenny's death occurs while the boys are in the middle of producing The Spirit of Christmas, so Stan decides to have Kenny's character die in the film so they won't have to re-shoot anything.

Season 5

Episode # Episode Title Description
501 Scott Tenorman Must Die
  • Laughs himself to death after seeing Cartman's "I'm a little piggy" video. 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.)
502 It Hits the Fan
  • Although he survives the plague from which he is suffering (brought on by the voluminous amount of the word "shit"), he vomits his intestines out just before the credits just after it is remarked that he didn't die. Stan: "Holy shi...! Poo."
503 Cripple Fight
  • During Gloria Allred's speech near the end, a giant bird swoops down and carries Kenny away by its claws but in the end of episode, Kenny is in the Mountain Scout meeting with other kids totally alive and healthy.
504 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 catch phrase 3 times, using it to try and find Kyle in a massive crowd a la the game Marco Polo. Kyle replies twice.
506 Cartmanland
  • Impaled through the face with a low hanging metal pipe while riding a roller coaster. (He was standing up at the time, though)
507 Proper Condom Use
  • His face is sliced in half with a boomerang thrown by Bebe. Cartman: "Ah, bitch!"
508 Towelie
  • Falls into a vat of lava while trying to save the boys' Gamesphere (a parody of the Nintendo Gamecube). Kyle: "Oh my God, our Gamesphere!"
509 Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants
  • Explosion kills Kenny and his Afghan counterpart. Stan and Kyle's Afghan counterparts say “Ya Allah! Koshtaen Keyvano! Tol dayoos!”, which translates to “Oh God, they killed Keyvan! You bastards!” in Persian . Kenny is also seen talking with Kyle, Stan, and the Afghanies in the background, although his alter ego is not.
510 How to Eat with Your Butt
  • Gets run over by a motorcycle. Stan and Kyle do not say their lines, while Cartman laughs at his death.
511 The Entity
  • Shot in the head by the airport security. The trademark post-Kenny-death catchphrase is not said. Instead Kyle's Jewish cousin "Kyle" yelled "Oh Jesus!"
512 Here Comes the Neighborhood
  • He is seen dead in this episode, but it's never shown or mentioned how he died. One possibility is that he died after being hit in the crotch too many times.
513 Kenny Dies
  • Permanently dies of a "terminal disease" (until "Red Sleigh Down". Also the first to be mourned over (617)).

Season 6

After Kenny's death in "Kenny Dies" (513), his soul was inside Cartman when he mistook Kenny's ashes for chocolate milk mix ("A Ladder to Heaven" (612)). Stan says his usual phrase, but instead of "killed", he says, "You drank Kenny!". Kenny does not reappear until "Red Sleigh Down" (617) (in which he is not killed as he is only in the final minute of the episode), but "dies" at least once this season in:

Episode # Episode Title Description
615 The Biggest Douche in the Universe
  • Rob Schneider eats a roast beef joint containing Kenny's recently-exorcised soul (Kenny possesses Cartman's body for a few episodes this season) and dies when Rob Schneider gets impaled by a flagpole in a movie trailer (in reference to one of Kenny's deaths in "Weight Gain 4000").

When Kenny returns, Stan is the first to notice him: "Oh hey Kenny." Then Kyle says"Dude, where've you been?" To which Kenny replied: (muffled) "I've just been hanging out."

The usual lines said whenever Kenny dies are still said in this season, but only when Jesus is killed in "Red Sleigh Down", so the line is changed to reflect that he is the one who dies.

Season 7

Kenny dies once in season 7.

Episode # Episode Title Description
715 It's Christmas in Canada
  • Zapped by Saddam Hussein, posing as Prime Minister of Canada, with laser eyes causing him to explode.

Season 8

Kenny dies once in season 8.

Episode # Episode Title Description
807 The Jeffersons
  • Tossed into the ceiling by "Mr. Jefferson" while dressed as Blanket Jackson. This episode is also significant for the fact that it is one of only seven times in which Kenny speaks without his voice being muffled by his jacket: one other being South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut. He also speaks in "Lice Capades", though this is almost unintelligible over the shouting of the mob Cartman organized. Most recently he has spoken clearly, albeit in a disguised voice, during his time as Mysterion. This death is also the third death of Kenny without his hood on, if you include him fading away in the movie (the first was Super Best Friends).

Season 9

Kenny dies two times in season 9. In the episode Ginger Kids, he is also taken off to some unknown fate and never seen again for the rest of an episode, though this doesn't count as an official death.

Episode # Episode Title Description
903 Wing
  • Shot by the Chinese mafia. Intinally his death moves Kyle to tears who also hugs him. "You didn't die for nothing. We're gonna get Wing back as our client and... and make a ton of money! I swear it to you!" Afterwards, after regrouping with Stan and Cartman, he says "They Killed Kenny!", to which Stan replies "Bastards!".
904 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.
  • The line is referenced twice in the episode. Outside the hospital where Kenny is in a vegetative state, Kyle leads a call/response protest where Kyle shouts, "Don't kill Kenny!" while the crowd responds, "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.

Season 10

Kenny does not die in season 10 - the first time this has happened. The traditional catchphrase is used the first of two times Kenny's World of Warcraft character is killed by a griefer in the episode "Make Love, Not Warcraft," although the FAQ did say this was an official death. The phrase is also used in a slightly modified form when Chef is killed in "The Return of Chef".

Season 11

Kenny dies once in Season 11.

Episode # Episode Title Description
1114 The List

Shot in the head in his house by Wendy Testaburger's attempt to block Bebe Stevens' stray bullet accidentally shot from the school roof. No lines are said for his death, though two pop tarts pop out of the toaster seconds after. This is the second time Bebe has killed Kenny (the first being in "Proper Condom Use").

Season 12

Kenny survived all of season 12, although he was almost killed by one of the terrorists in Super Fun Time when Stan saved him. Unlike season 10, the lines "Oh my God they killed Kenny!" "You bastards!" were not used.

Season 13

Kenny dies three times in Season 13.

Episode # Episode Title Description
1301 The Ring
  • Dies from syphilis after receiving a "B.J." from his girlfriend Tammy Warner. The line, "Oh my God, they killed Kenny!" "You bastards!" were not used.



  • Blown up by a malfunctioning rocket fired by the wrestling coach in an attempt to kill Vince McMahon. Since Kenny was portraying a Mexican Wrestler, two of the Mexican fans in the stand stated the famous line in Spanish. Nevertheless, he's heard talking (and supposedly fighting) with Cartman at the ending scene, where the boys are not in camera. (Cartman was fighting Kyle just before that)



  • Drowns in the mass of urine after the water park floods -- without his parka on. Stan exclaims "Oh my God, they killed Kenny!", but no replies as Kyle's not with him.

Season 14

Kenny dies five times in three episodes in season 14 -- the highest count since he ceased to die regularly (Season 5).

Episode # Episode Title Description
1401 Sexual Healing
  • Dies as a result of autoerotic asphyxiation, after choking himself with a belt while dressed as Batman upon the suggestion of a Center for Disease Control agent testing for sex addiction.
1412 Mysterion Rises
  • He is stabbed in the heart as Mysterion by a member of the Cthulhu cult, he wakes up alive and well in his bed the next day, his inability to remain dead is implied to be a result of Cthulhu's power. The lines "Oh my God, they killed Kenny!" and "You bastards!" were used respectively.


Coon vs. Coon and Friends

  • As Mysterion, commits suicide by shooting himself in the head after convincing The Human Kite and Toolshed that they will not remember him dying. He wakes up in bed, alive and well.
  • Jumps inside a pit of spikes to sacrifice himself to save his vigilantes from oblivion. It works and he wakes up again in bed. Stan says "Oh my god, Kenny!" and Kyle replies with "You crazy bastard!".
  • After Mint Berry Crunch saves them from oblivion, he casually admits he wants to go to bed and shoots himself a second time. Instead of waking up in his own bed, Mrs. McCormick is spontaneously impregnated and gives birth to him early the next morning. It is implied that his parents, who were formerly part of Cthulhu's cult, are responsible for Kenny's immortality.

Season 15

Kenny died only once in Season 15.

Episode # Episode Title Description
1514 The Poor Kid

Just as the South Park Elementary School kids praise Kenny for his accomplishments (and Cartman sings with glee about how he is no longer the poorest kid in the school), a gigantic bird (randomly) breaks through the ceiling and tosses Kenny around with its' mouth, right before he eats him whole, and flies away. Stan simply replies, "What the fuck?"

Season 16

Currently, Kenny has died only once in Season 16.

Episode # Episode Title Description
1606 I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining

Dies of boredom while riding on a boat going 5 m/ph. Other factors that led up to his boredom include zip-lining and horseback riding with tour groups. Note: This entire scene was shot in a live-action sequence, one of the few times the series has done this.

Video games

Game Title Description
South Park (video game)
  • Opening sequence — Head bitten off by the Iguana Entertainment logo.
  • Operation: Turkey Butt — Squished by a door while chasing a giant turkey. If the player was using Kenny they change to Cartman for the rest of the fight. He appears ressurrected at the end of the level, albeit all stitched together.
  • A Clone of Your Own — Does not die.
  • Close Encounters of the Bovine Kind — Does not die.
  • Something Wicked This Way Clunks — After the boys save Jimbo and Ned from the robots, Kenny gets himself crushed by a falling robot head.

A safe fell on him." Stan: "Well, we always say 'they'. We always say 'they' killed Kenny." Kyle: "Doesn't make any sense, though." Stan: "Oh yeah."
South Park Rally
  • Opening credits - Runs out of gas on the train track, gets crushed by a train, and his head goes flying off and hits the South Park sign.

South Park Pinball Game
  • If the player manages to activate and win the "Kill Kenny Bonus" (earned by knocking the pinball into Kenny's slot three times, then one more time) Kenny (on the screen) is gunned down by an unknown assailant, while the Kenny figure just falls over.

South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999)

Suffers severe burns when he attempts to light his fart on fire, but is ultimately killed by the ER doctors who replace his heart with a baked potato, which explodes and splatters some of his remains across the hospital room.

It has been noted that he perhaps "dies again" when he makes his unselfish wish that sends him temporarily back to Hell, before he is sent to Heaven. However, this is questionable, because it is unclear in what form he appears when he climbs out of Hell after Satan invades earth. It isn't treated as a true "resurrection", and he may have only appeared in "spirit form". The fact that he fades away may in fact back up that he was an apparition, and is not truly "alive" again.
