Cartman is sometimes the main antagonist of an episode, for example " Trapper Keeper ". None of the other three main children really consider Cartman their friend and do not know why they started hanging out with him in the first place, but a certain form of unstable friendship ends up being born between them. However he is usually Kyle's first choice when he breaks his friendship with Stan. In earlier episodes, Kenny was his best friend, however, in later seasons, Butters Stotch is usually depicted as such. Cartman was the first one of the boys to be shown without his hat, as seen in " Merry Christmas Charlie Manson! He also weighs 90 pounds, as revealed in " Weight Gain ".

His decisions are almost always driven by his own material or personal desires, and often feelings like sympathy or guilt are completely foreign to him, with the upmost rare, genuine exception. Cartman has often detailed his greatest desire since he was two years old, as being nothing less than ten million dollars, cash - and he is always willing to do whatever it takes, or to pursue any scheme, that will advance or achieve this end. No discussion of Eric Cartman can go by without covering his long and storied history of racial discriminatory behaviors, prejudice against various other groups, and other forms of bigotry. Taking responsibility for his actions is unnecessary when he can simply blame other groups for problems personal, local, national and even international in nature. Over the years, Cartman has exhibited anti-semitism, classism, homophobia, transphobia, internalized fatphobia, ableism, Islamophobia , unapologetic misogynism, racism towards African and Asian Americans, and also a particularly curious discrimination against Gingers , motivating the creation of a dangerous Ginger Separatist Movement. Cartman will never hesitate for a chance to humiliate Kyle or his religious beliefs, which is the backbone of many of their frequent disagreements. Cartman has even exhibited a desire to eliminate the Jewish people entirely from the face of the Earth, and was grounded for a few weeks for one such attempt. He did not learn a valuable lesson from the experience. He doesn't seem to be aware that Jesus Christ is actually a Jew and that the Romans mainly killed Jesus. Of course, despite this divisive and inflammatory rhetoric against others, Cartman will always be happy to feign tolerance, or skew his views, if he can take advantage of group benefits or utilize them to his convenience.
