RoleEdit

South Park: The Stick of Truth Edit

Stephen's only appearance during the main quest is when he attends and speaks at the PTA meeting regarding the new Taco Bell. During the rest of the game, he can be found at Butters' house. The New Kid can talk to him to friend him. When the New Kid befriends him, he tells him to let him know on Facebook if Butters does something he should be grounded for.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole Edit

Stephen is always seen in his Living Room, reading the Newspaper. A selfie can be requested from him at anytime, after taking it he will start to follow The New Kid on Coonstagram.

Stephen appears as a boss early in the third day, confronting Professor Chaos and the New Kid when they return to Butters's house to prepare for their infiltration of the Freedom Pals. After berating his son for not coming home last night (due to being imprisoned by Coon and Friends), he grounds both him and the New Kid by locking them in the former's room with a special electronic system. However, the two kids manage to escape when the New Kid comes up with the Haywire buddy ability, allowing Professor Chaos's winged minion to disrupt the wires on the security system.

Stephen confronts the kids in his living room, stunned that they managed to escape despite being grounded. He "deduces" that the New Kid has some kind of "ungrounding" power before engaging them in battle, announcing that "your evil magic is not welcome here, darkling!" To battle Stephen, the New Kid calls upon Coon and Friends, as well as Call Girl.

Upon being defeated by the New Kid, Professor Chaos, and their allies, Stephen is left unconscious, allowing his son to flee the house before he reawakens.

Battle Edit

In his boss fight in South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Stephen is considered to be a formidable foe, as he has a great amount of movement despite the fact that he only has a standard attack. His true power comes from the ability to ground the New Kid's party members, rendering them useless until they are ungrounded, it also lowers the team's defense. During this fight, the New Kid will be immune to the "Grounded" status effect, not to mention that their Ultimate Power is replaced with the ability to "Unground" their allies, however, antidotes can also remove the "Grounded" status effect, and these can be used by any party member. Henrietta's "Satanic Seal" (If the From Dusk till Casa Bonita DLC was purchased, and the player unlocked Henrietta as a party member) can also remove the "Grounded" Status effect.

He attacks twice per turn, using his first attack to deal damage and his second attack to Ground the New Kid's allies, however, this attack is a predictable attack, which means that it can be dodged if party members don't finish their turns on red spaces. This attack starts as one that can be easily dodged, but every time Stephen receives damage and/or is attacked, the red spaces become more and more until the point where it covers all the battlefield.

It's also important to notice that even if the New Kid is immune to the Grounding during this fight, they can still have their defense lowered from the attack, plus, if every ally is grounded and the New Kid runs out of health, you will lose the battle, as none of the other party members will be able attack Stephen or revive the New Kid, so it is essential to keep the New Kid alive during this battle so they can unground the rest of the party.

Attacks: Edit

TriviaEdit

  • In South Park: The Stick of Truth, there is a Nazi zombie that looks exactly like him.
  • As a boss in The Fractured But Whole, Stephen cannot be Pissed Off; if a hero attempts this, he'll retort that they're just making him angrier at Butters (much to Butters's dismay).
  • In South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Stephen shares his Battle Theme song with the Old People, The Buca De Faggoncini Cooks and the Therapy Kids.
  • In South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Stephen can be seen outside Craig's house on the third night, having a nightmare about his mother grounding him. This hints that when Stephen was younger, he was abused by his mother and often gets grounded. This passes down to him and Butters, where he abuses Butters and grounds him a lot.
