Cartman is weak and also slow, he usually loses in fights, like with Kyle or even that time with Wendy. Poor Butters is a gentle soul, he wouldn't even step on an ant and if he did it by mistake he probably would cry afterwards. so Bebe/Wendy gotta be the winners here.
You have finally confirmed for yourself why I do prefer Bebe over Wendy as South Park's lead female child character. Why is that of course? Because I find Bebe to be more cool, chilled and laid-back than Wendy, who always stops at nothing to pursue her activist agenda. I don't understand why Wendy became a main character again, even if it made sense to put her back in the limelight in the wake of the Soclal Justice Warriors era in the Politically Correct wave that PC Principal embodied.
Even a seldom used female child character like Heidi Turner gets more screen time than Bebe these days. Nobody's even explored any backstory for Red or Annie, like Wendy and Bebe already have. The whole Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society episode (2002) was Bebe's career-high episode, because it was the only one of the three Bebe-centric episodes that did not seem to villainize Bebe like Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset and more prominently The List. The latter episode should've tapped into the backstory based on a past episode when Bebe had a short-lived relationship with Kyle in Season 2's Clubhouses (1998-99) revolving around Stan/Wendy in regards to Bebe's dumping Kyle for Clyde, which led to Bebe corrupting The List to ensure that Kyle is at the bottom of the barrel in the rankings list of boys ranked from cutest to ugliest.
Cartman as a fighter did become resillient when PC Principal gave him a mega beating in a botched attempt for that was the last time Eric Cartman was actually being himself instead of the watered-down version of Cartman now stuck being a people-pleasing feminist who no longer goes it alone as he is now accompanied by Heidi.
Maybe the serialized episodes helped increase the value of Gerald Broflovski and Heidi Turner, to make it look like South Park is steering away from Cartman, Butters and Randy as their previous focal points. If serialized episodes mean "Anything Can Happen", I suppose you could have one episode based on the girls: Wendy, Bebe, Red, Heidi and Annie, like how South Park had a spin-off episode centered around The Goth Kids (Michael, Pete, Firkle and Henrietta).
