The 6th Graders

The 6th Graders are recurring characters in the show's early Seasons and background characters in the current Seasons. They are students at South Park Elementary.


The 6th Graders used to be recurring characters on the show in early Seasons, being seen as bullies and troublemakers who like to bully 4th Graders and ride their bikes pretending to be motorcycles. In later seasons, the characters began to have their roles from bullies reduced to background students at South Park Elementary, being used commonly in the Assembly, Cafeteria and Playground scenes.

In the early seasons, only a few of the 6th graders were known, who passed through the role of bullies, with a notable leader in attendance. This role lasted until Season Eight, in the episode "Pre-School". Their new and current role as background characters started from Season Nine, specifically the episode "Erection Day", which even added a larger variation of different 6th graders.

Despite having taken a background role in the current seasons, they still play slightly notable roles in some episodes, with the most prominent being in "Breast Cancer Show Ever", where they are seen watching Cartman and Wendy fight, and also having their classroom shown for the first time. This episode also added more 6th grader characters to the background, similar to "Erection Day", only this time with more detailed designs.

Video Games[]

Despite having taken up the role of background characters a long time ago, 6th Graders still have significant roles in the South Park games, where they return to their roles as bullies.

South Park Let's Go Tower Defense Play![]

They appear in the South Park game, South Park Let's Go Tower Defense Play! as enemies in various levels. They are the only enemy to come in two completely different types: normal and on bikes. The normal ones are average, deal 5 points of damage to the town and take regular damage from all towers. The ones on bikes are faster, deal 9-11 points of damage and are vulnerable to fire-works towers.

South Park: The Stick of Truth[]

They appear in the alleyway between Jimbo's Guns and Skeeter's Bar when the Goth Kids ask you to find some cigarettes. They are seen smoking. The player then battles them to find the cigars. They are labeled as "Smoking Scoundrels" when being battled.

An unused 6th Grader model can be found in the game files. The model name is "6thg_01", so probably 6th graders would be some kind of faction, but at the end of the game they turned out to be enemies that appear in only one quest. The idea, however, was carried over to the next game.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole[]

The New Kid is required to defeat a group of 6th graders with the help of Super Craig and the Human Kite to gain further access into South Park. Afterwhich, the 6th graders will be one of the common enemies that are found across town.

During The Many Asses of Dr. Mephesto mission, some 6th graders are being subjected to genetical engineering, with several asses implanted onto their bodies. The New Kid is required to defeat the mutant 6th graders in order to gain progress into the mission.

South Park: Snow Day![]

The 6th graders appear again as one of the types of enemies in the third game, this time participating in the boys' game. They are all several different recolors of the 6th Grader with Brown Hat.

In one of the concept arts, it is shown that other different types of enemies 6th graders were planned to enter the game, but ended up being scrapped.


The sixth grade classroom appeared in "Breast Cancer Show Ever", when the children are seen exiting it. The room has yellow walls, bluish green floors, roomier desks with green chairs and a history timeline on the wall along with other various posters and documents.


6th graders are notably taller than 4th graders, albeit short compared to adults and teens. Unlike 4th graders, they have a wide range of body shapes with different sizes. Starting from "Breast Cancer Show Ever", a wide variety of new 6th graders have been added, with a more detailed look and feel that are more in keeping with the show's current animation style.
