The last thing the Goth kids want to be is conformists; as a result, these "nonconformists" listen to the same music, dress in the same clothes, and act the same. They consider their only purpose in life to make life more miserable for the conformists. They also hate douchey Vamp Kids, who they accuse of stealing their style. They also have a band, as seen in "Erection Day".
They usually hang out behind South Park Elementary and smoke cigarettes or dance, hang out at Benny's or the Village Inn and drink coffee, or write poems in Henrietta Biggle's room. They never go to class, though they have been seen inside the school, and nothing pisses them off more than being referred to as 'Vampire Kids' or 'Emo' kids, and often accuse the conformists of being 'wannabe' Justin Timberlakes or Britney Spears.
The group's members include Michael, the tall Goth, Pete, the 'Hair Flip' Goth, Henrietta Biggle, the 'Goth Girl' and Firkle, the 'Little Goth'. An unknown Goth Girl has been seen with them in "Goobacks" and the ninth season intro, but she has never been seen otherwise. Despite their cynical attitudes, it is shown that they do care about each other, lying about how Henrietta changed cliques so easily in "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers".
During the episode "Raisins", Stan becomes a goth kid at Kyle's suggestion after his breakup with Wendy, and is assigned the goth name Raven. He later leaves the group after hearing a speech from Butters Stotch, though they keep in contact, as seen in "Breast Cancer Show Ever"

A significant quest in the game involves courting the Goth Kids' allegiance and choosing whether to bring them to the Humans or the Elves. The player must find them behind the school, then learn to dress like them and dance like them to win their friendship. They then join the player's chosen race in the Battle at the School.
