- Main article: Damien Thorn
Damien Thorn is the son of Satan, and claims to be from the seventh layer of hell.
Damien has bizarre powers which include summoning shadow demons and launching size-varying fireballs from his fingertips. He appears to be based on Damien Thorn from The Omen. Whenever he speaks, voices speaking in Latin play in the background. They are saying "Rectus… Dominus… Cheesy Poofs…" ("Rectus Dominus" is cod Latin for "Ass Master" which is an often used insult on the show, and Cheesy Poofs is Cartman's favorite snack.)
In his only speaking appearance to date, "Damien", Damien comes to the boys' class. He claims to be the son of Satan, which is completely ignored by Mr. Garrison, despite his obvious evil powers (it might be that Mr. Garrison just didn't care). Damien is rejected from sitting with the main characters during lunch and after being taunted by Kenny and Stan, he turns Kenny into a duck-billed platypus, he then demands to speak to Jesus. Damien's father, Satan, challenges Jesus to a boxing match, and most everyone bets their money on Satan, with one (ironically, Satan himself) betting their money on Jesus. Jesus is horribly beaten, but Satan throws the fight. He allows Jesus to win in order to get everyone's money. Damien then returns to Hell alongside his father, claiming that he only does his evil because he has to. Subsequently, Damien has appeared in the background of various episodes, and was seen in the movie theater with various South Park children watching Asses of Fire in South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut. He was also seen auditioning to be the kids' new fourth friend in "Professor Chaos".
- Main article: Death (character)
Death appears physically in the episode "Death".
Death is envisioned as a faceless, robed character with a sickle who communicates only in grunts. The four boys (along with Grandpa Marsh) encounter Death when he comes for Kenny. Grandpa Marsh also sees Death, and - while Death chases Kenny - Grandpa Marsh gives chase to Death as well. The boys are saved when Death is distracted by an episode of Terrance and Phillip on a TV display in a downtown shop window.

John Horsoff is the name of the President of Cartoon Central. His only appearance is in "Death", and his dialogue is extremely limited.
Kathie Lee Gifford
- Main article: Kathie Lee Gifford
Kathie Lee Gifford is a former classmate of Herbert Garrison. When they were young, they competed in a talent show, in which Mr. Garrison and Mr. Hat put on a very lame, yet critically-praised ventriloquist performance. Victory seemed to be his when Kathie Lee came forth to sing, with background dancers, music, and a fancy set. She won the talent contest by a landslide as a result. Mr. Garrison was furious that he lost because "she had choreography", and has held a grudge against her ever since.
When Kathie Lee came to perform in South Park, Mr. Garrison decided to get even with her, but Mr. Hat said he should just kill her altogether. Mr. Garrison tried to fight Mr Hat's influence, but gave in and purchased a rifle and held himself up in the town's book depository. Kathie showed up on a truck encased in a bulletproof glass chamber and surrounded by agents, and listened to the various performances in town. Stan and Wendy caught on to Mr. Garrison's plot and tried to convince him not to kill Kathie Lee. Unfortunately, he went forth with his plan and fired at Kathie Lee. However, she survived as she was thrown off the stage when Cartman's enormous girth broke the stage, and Garrison shot Kenny instead. Kathie Lee was rushed out of South Park and Mr. Garrison was arrested, and Mr. Hat was committed.
- Main article: Leonard Maltin
Leonard Maltin appears in the episode, "Mecha-Streisand", in which he assists Sidney Poitier and Robert Smith in defeating Barbra Streisand, all of whom can transform into Japanese movie monsters. Maltin transforms into an Ultraman-type character in order to fight Mecha-Streisand.
- Main article: Ms. Ellen
Ms. Ellen was a substitute teacher in episode eleven, "Tom's Rhinoplasty".
She caught the attention of Stan Marsh who threw up every time he saw her. This made Wendy Testaburger jealous and she organized a plot to get rid of her from the school which ended up with Arabs bursting into the classroom, Ms. Ellen throwing a sword at Kenny McCormick, and then being launched from a rocket towards the sun by Arabs. When Stan tells her how he feels, she explains to him that she is a lesbian. The four boys then proceeded to eat a box and lick carpet, literal examples of lesbian sex.
Her name is an obvious reference to lesbian actress Ellen DeGeneres, and she was voiced by Natasha Henstridgewho was credited as "The Chick From Species".

He appears in the episode "Volcano", where Cartman tells the story of Scuzzlebutt to scare his friends. Cartman then dresses up like Scuzzlebutt to further frighten the boys. However, when a volcano erupts the real Scuzzlebutt weaves a wicker basket that saves the children. Shortly after, Stan kills Scuzzlebutt to prove to his Uncle Jimbo that he is a good nephew.
- Main article: Sidney Poitier

- Main article: Sparky
Sparky is Stan Marsh's dog. He appears in the episode "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride".
Part doberman and part wolf, Stan claims that Sparky is 'the toughest dog on the mountain.' ...This assertion is challenged by other South Park residents when Sparky's homosexual nature is made manifest - first with the mutt Sylvester and then with Clyde's dog Rex. (Sparky also has a brief physical encounter with the mail-ordered poodle Fifi, but his only interest is in Fifi's diamond-studded collar.)
Overhearing Stan repeating an anti-gay tirade first heard from Mr. Garrison, Sparky flees to the shelter of Big Gay Al's Big Gay Animal Sanctuary. He is soon found and returned, and makes very few sporadic appearances in the series after "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride".
- Main article: Starvin' Marvin
Starvin' Marvin is a thin little boy from Ethiopia, who first appeared in the episode "Starvin' Marvin". He doesn't know English, but he learns in this episode how to say a few phrases (such as "Sweet!" or, "Yeah, I want the Cheesy Poofs!"). He also learned how to say his name (the name the boys had given him. The boys were intrigued by the clicking sounds of Starvin' Marvin's language (which actually more resembles the Khoisan languages of Southern Africa.)
In his first appearance, Marvin was accidentally shipped over to the boys, who then took him into their custody, and tried to teach him the ways of the Americans. But they were found out, and forced to return him to Ethiopia. In his second (and currently last) appearance, "Starvin' Marvin in Space", Marvin got a hold of a rocket ship, which he and the boys used to travel to outer space. Later in this episode, Marvin brought all of the other Ethiopians to the paradise planet "Marklar".
- Main article: Visitors
Visitors are aliens who came to Earth and gave Eric Cartman an Anal Probe in the pilot episode "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe". They also kidnapped Ike and then said that cows were the most intelligent species on earth.
Additionally, South Park animators have "hidden" visitors in many episodes, especially early in the series. They poke a little fun at this practice in "Cancelled" when the receptionist at the proctologist's office is a Visitor disguised only in a wig. Then, to the sound of percussive music, this Visitor dramatically removes his/her wig.
