Kenny McCormick is one of the most beloved characters in South Park. Although there were times where he wasn’t in the series as much as Stan, Kyle, and Cartman, he’s without a doubt integral to the team. What originally started out as an ongoing gag – where Kenny was killed time and again only to return in the next episode – gave way to a well-rounded and interesting character as seasons went on.
Kenny is also well known for being hard to understand when speaking through his tightly drawn hoodie. Despite this, there are a few moments where Kenny is coherent. It’s easier to understand South Park‘s mumbly resident when he takes the hoodie off or when he merely deepens his voice for his alter-ego Mysterion, but Kenny’s spoken more than once.

When Cartman became The Coon, he did so because he wanted the attention. But when a greater superhero, Mysterion, showed up, things changed. The Coon ends up teaming up with his nemeses, Professor Chaos and General Disarray, to fight and expose Mysterion’ true identity. Eventually, The Coon ends up convincing Mysterion to reveal who he is to all of South Park.
He draws back his mask and hood to reveal a nondescript face. While the people of South Park recognize Kenny right away, audiences couldn’t tell him apart from any of the other background characters, so they had to wait until it was more clearly stated later on.
3 “Now Let Me Tell You, Child, Of A War That Is About To Come…”
The 8th episode of the 17th season, “A Song of A** and Fire” opens up with a lengthy, foreboding quote:

At the dawn of war, I stand alone , looking out where would be the last battlefield, for winter is coming. And I am a princess.

2 “You Are Not Alone. No Matter Where You Go, No Matter What You Do, I Will Always Be Here.”
“The Poor Kid” is a remarkable episode, full of meaningful Kenny-isms. When the McCormicks first arrive at their foster home, they learn that their foster parents are very strict, and Karen became understandably frightened, unsure of her place in the world. That night as she cried, Kenny dressed up as Mysterion to comfort her. Not understanding why her real parents went to jail, Karen tells Mysterion that she feels like she is alone. To which Kenny (as Mysterion) replies: “You are not alone. No matter where you go, no matter what you do, I will always be here.”
1 “I Can’t Die. I’ve Experienced Death Countless Times…”
Kenny’s best quote is in the 12th episode of season 14, “Mysterion Rises.” After Captain Hindsight snuck into Mysterion and co.’s base to search for the photos that The Coon for blackmail, the heroes attempted to make peace with him. However, Mysterion tells Captain Hindsight to shoot him. Kenny (as Mysterion) reveals that he does, in fact, have a superpower.
“I can’t die. I’ve experienced death countless times. Sometimes I see a bright light. Sometimes I see Heaven or Hell. But eventually, no matter what, I wake up in my bed, wearing my same old clothes. And the worst part: nobody even remembers me dying. I go to school the next day and everyone is just like, “Oh, hey, Kenny,” even if they had seen me get decapitated with their own eyes. You want to whine about curses , Hindsight? You’re talking to the wrong f****** cowboy!” In this scene, fans are able to understand how painful it is for Kenny to briefly, yet repeatedly, experience death, and that the experience goes much further than the mere punchline that it originally appeared to be.
