A character's usefulness is determined by the amount of material that could be used successfully with them. I don't think Pip qualifies as useless, because unused is not the same as useless. He still has an open plot thread in his back story, specifically whether or not he will ever be adopted, and there are numerous situations I can think of off the top of my head that he would work well in.

Compare that to Towelie, whom as I said earlier has literally been wrung dry. The sooner he leaves, the better. Watching him is about as much fun as sitting on the roadside Waiting for Godot.

Anyway I think it's Jimmy. He's just so overused. I mean yeah, the jokes are funny the first few times, but why they have 3-4 episodes devoted to him I can't figure out. They're just taking screen time away from characters like Tweek, Clyde, Pip, DogPoo, Craig, etc.

^You take back what you said about Pip! >.< He's not useless at all! He was supposed to be the one everyone had to feel sorry for (likewise Kenny) because M&T constantly tormented him, which is a lot worse than killing Kenny because at least Kenny could come back from the dead... Pip used to be the lead melvin! He used to be a secondary character!

...and now he's not used at all. How can a character be useless if he's horribly underused? :cry:

he isnt used because he has no purpose. all he really does is get made fun of by other characters. like he always says stuff thats lame. he isnt even funny.

Yeah he does have a purpose, to get made fun of by the other characters. Congratulations, you contradicted yourself. Lame stuff can be funny too.

HE IS NOT LAME!!! >.< What he says is hilarious! And his initial purpose was to be used as an object of torment by Matt and Trey... but seriously, even in the dodgeball episode, you knew that M&T wanted to add more depth to his character. They wanted to give him more of a purpose.

And then along came Butters, and all of that hope of Pip becoming a primary character went right down the drain. D:

I fail to see how Pip could ever develope enough to ba a main characture. You would have to cut fatass out, and season ten has revolved around him so-far(Hypen?).

Everyone keeps ragging on jimmy, jimmy isnt that bad of a character, i admit he can be annoying at some points, but he's alright.

But Overall, Dog Poo definatly is the most useless character in the show, i dont think he even says anything, OR, those two kids who say "Hahaha thats gay, your gay, were gay."

:D
Shutup Kenny or i'll kick you in the nutss!

Dogpoo is more of a crowd filler, he can't be useless cause he was never used to begin with. I still say Towlie, for personal reasons.
