New Kid as a Jew

"Jew, huh? So I guess we'll never really be friends." - Cartman when picking the class

"A Jew from New Jersey? So you are basically Kyle's mom, cool.."

Jew is a Class in South Park: The Stick of Truth which Eric Cartman invented, in which when the player is closer to death, they become more powerful.

TacticsEdit

The Jew class has access to many pieces of armor and weaponry that grant bonuses on the Jew's suffering. The armor pieces, which are awarded as the character progresses through the game, grant bonuses based on the negative status conditions the Jew is currently experiencing; for example, they may increase damage dealt for each stack of bleeding afflicting the character. Other bonuses include damage reduction and PP regeneration while bleeding/on fire/grossed out. Lower-level Jew weaponry isn't particularly strong, but at higher levels the class' weapons will begin to confer bonus Holy-elemental damage, which pierces enemy defenses and is especially effective against Gingers and Nazi Zombies. Many of the Jew's special attacks can be upgraded to gain increased damage when the New Kid has low HP, fitting with the theme of suffering. Thus, curing status effects may not always be a good idea, since the player can turn their suffering upon their opponents to help end any battle quickly. To truly master the Jew class, players must be prepared to risk their life for high damage.

TriviaEdit

  • The Jew class is the only class that goes through physical changes as they rank up throughout the game, in which they gain curly hair on the sides of their faces - an item called "Sidelocks" that appears in the player's inventory under Makeup. This starts when they get promoted to Sir Douchebag.
  • The Jew class is also the only class that is needed for an achievement. If the player finds Jesus while playing a Jew, they will get the "Are we Cool?" achievement.
  • When the New Kid reaches "King" rank after defeating Clyde, he takes on the appearance of Jesus Christ, who is known as the "King of the Jews."
  • Many of the Jew class's special moves are derived from certain attributes of Jews in real life: the Sling of David is based on the story of David and Goliath, the Plagues of Egypt comes from the tale of Moses in the Bible; Whirlwind of Doom involves a dreidel, a toy invented for the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, and Circum-Scythe is derived from circumcision, an entirely healthy ritual practiced by the Jews. The only move that isn't derived from any real-world Jewish stereotypes is Jew-Jitsu, whose name is a play on the name jujitsu, a fighting style from Asia.
  • The inclusion of a Jew class in the game makes it fitting, since common enemies are Nazi zombies, and Jews were persecuted by the Nazis in the Second World War.
