This. This is so much true. Kyle's major point, especially recently, has been to be a counter to the ridiculousness going on in the episode. Without someone or something to keep the whole thing grounded than it would lose a ton of its impact. Though he used to do more, Kyle tends to mostly act as a foil to everything else going on around him.

To be fair; I think many of the things that people are complaining about are because Kyle's stayed fairly grounded whereas many of the plots and stories are flying off in random directions. We rarely see the whole group working together anymore. More often there's something much more specific going on and Kyle is constantly portrayed as the foil to the main story of the episode.

You know, I like Kyle as a main character. And in fact I'd like to see them do more with him other than make him a foil to Cartman. I mean, why couldn't he have a real date with someone like say the new character Nichole without say Cartman being racist?! I'm just saying

Yeah there he was having a good time with Nicole and that fast bastard ruins it.
Kyle: Why? How could you do this? There are people starving in Alabama and you give Cartman a million dollars?

Cartman: Line? Lines! I HATE LINES!!!

I'm okay with him being the foil, but there was definitely a missing beat down with that episode. Cartman deserved a good punch to the gut.

The issue with Kyle acting in a lead is that he is painstakingly rational. That means he needs to get into situations based on being oblivious or the rational option backfiring. South Park is so absurd that it's hard for him to act other than being a foil for the others. It's just the reality of smart characters in popular fiction, particularly comedies, seldom being used as the lead. Rational just isn't the basis for amusement without that foil around.

Of course, it'd be kinda nice if he got a growing up episode where he realizes he needs to act more like a kid as a means to dial down the direction of later seasons to put him in the position of the rational and moral compass.

I was looking up about zodiac signs recently (I don't believe in it, but I find it interesting and cool), and I noticed under Sidereal dates, Kyle would be a Taurus instead of a Gemini. According to a website about zodiac signs, Taurus colors are green, orange, yellow, and earth tones. What a coincidence that Kyle wears both Green and Orange! XD

I really want in on this discussion because I feel like South Park is a show you can sit and talk about for hours because its actually really deep and apart from this forum the only fans I seem to come across online just talk about how in love the characters are with each other.

Anyways I digress - I feel that each of the four main characters add something to the show that has made it what it is today - and in Kyle's case that's the moral voice. The moral voice has been one of the many things that has set the show apart from others and therefore has been a reason why it has been able to go on for so long. We should all at least appreciate that, (as well as the fact that Kyle is of course based on Matt) so it does bother me hearing some people be so hateful towards him.

He always tries to do the right thing which often backfires, showing us that you won't get rewarded in life for doing what's right and you might even get a ton of sh*t. Do it because it's the right thing, not because you expect something in return. Because you'll be disappointed if you do.
He is also flawed and can be an assh*le without realising it. However despite how things might appear in recent episodes I do believe he has the best intentions, and that is what people are like in real life. We should all try to be a good person but we will f*ck up sometimes. That's what I get from him anyway.

I can write so much more and It's frustrating how fictional animated 10 year olds can have so much depth.

Kyle Broflovski

Postby Khensi » Thu Jan 30, 2014 12:46 pm

Kyle Broflovski (or Broslofski or Brovlovski ) , played by Matt Stone, is a fictional character in the animated series South Park.
Kyle is the only Jew boy in town, so it is taunted by Eric Cartman . She has a younger adopted brother , Canadian , named Ike . His mother, Sheila , is extremely protective and often salt horse trying to keep the boy away from evil , for example swearing .
Kyle is very quick to anger , and therefore did not hesitate to respond violently antisemitic Cartman bites , otherwise rivalry with the Cartman is one of the main action and humor of the show .
Whether he or Stan , each time announcing the death of Kenny to reply , having reached famous , "Oh my God ! They Killed Kenny ! " To which the other responds, " You bastards ." Along with Stan , Kyle occasionally take the role of " conscience" of the group , concluding episodes to reply " I learned something today ... " followed by series creators morals that I wish to convey to the public.
Is my favorite caracter. 8)

That may be questionable, but I generally agree with you. As far as time shown; Kyle probably isn't the main character of the show. However, Kyle is the all important straight man in the show. His role may not be popular, but it's completely necessary for the show to exist.

He's my favorite character too and I like how he seems to be the voice of reason since Stan's personality change in YGO/AB.
Plus he normally fights back when Cartman insults him for being Jewish.
