Token is a member of the boy's 4th grade class. He is the richest kid in South park and also the only black kid. In one instance, Cartman got arrested and sent to juvie hall after throwing a rock at Token's head. Token is also a very gifted singer and can play a mean bass guitar. When he's not slapping the bass, however, he's teaming up with the infamous superhero squad Coon and Friends. His secret identity: "Tupperware!"

- Much like Butters, Token has actually been around as a background character since the pilot episode, "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe". His first big breakout role was in Season 4's "Cartman's Silly Hate Crime".
Token vs. Cartman
Token and Cartman have always had a love/hate relationship -- from the "hate crime" in Token's first main episode ("Cartman's Silly Hate Crime") to their intense standoff in last season's "World War Zimmerman". Token also kicked Cartman's ass in "Christian Rock Hard".
