South Park: The Stick of Truth

South Park: The Stick of Truth Achievements

More Popular Than John Lennon

Befriend all of South Park.   


This achievement requires you to acquire all 120 friends in the game, INCLUDING Clyde at the very beginning of the game, who is technically the 121st friend, but he removes you immediately after being banished. You must talk to Clyde right in the beginning of the game in Kupa Keep, before talking to Cartman, or you'll be unable to unlock this achievement even if you get all 120 friends.

Follow the Friends guide Here for a rough chronological list of all 121 friends. It also highlights which friends are missable. Also use the Missable Guide, which includes missable friends in each quest when they appear.

Keep in mind that while there is no New Game+ to get missable friends, there is post-game play where you can mop up some friends that you may have missed while playing (the un-missable friends), so if you aren't complete with the friends list by the time you finish the game, as long as you've gotten the missable friends, you can go back post-game and get the remaining ones to unlock this achievement.

There is technically 121 due to a certain person unfriending you. This individual must be spoken to in the first encampment

I saw the weirdest friend that you might miss... In the School when you have to choose sides, there is a RAT in the 5th grade class that you have to be friends with.. Who would think to talk to a rat??

@5 Anyone adequately familiar enough with the show to recognize who it is. And so far, in both playthrus I've made, my buddy with me at the time even tells you he's there when you walk into the room, so it'd be a bit hard to miss him.

For anyone that does not realize, it is in fact 120. Considering the half chievo is 60. As far as this chievo goes it's unbelievable frustrating as there are a good at least 6-7 missable friend requests throughout the game. Some you can come back to, others are purely based on your decisions such as the Bishop of Banff and Sergeant Yates. In hindsight these are noticeable ones to mention.

The Woodland Critters in the Lost Forest
Shelly Marsh is available after you defeat her as the She-Ogre
Sergeant Yates is available for a quest during the Nazi Zombie period
All of the PTA are available once you have completed Randy's quest
Bishop of Banff if you decide not to chop his sack off (Consider saving as chopping his sack off allows for the Dire Scepter to be obtained)
More to be posted.

For the bishop if you spare him you can still buy the scepter from the show in baniff

I missed the rat friend request in the 5th grade classroom during the school raid where I chose Kyle or Cartman. Can I go back for the request or is it missable if left behind at that time?

@#9 Yes, Lemiwinks is most definitely missable in the 5th Gr. classroom. Did anyone hear anything about the Nazi Zombie General f/r? I am an SP fan but haven't seen the corresponding episode. Apparently the eye patch FBI homie is also a missable grab. I have been back and forth looking for him at different times and haven't been able to figure it out yet. Where are you pirate man?

Polly Prissy Pants is also a friend. Go to Cartman's Room with Cartman as your buddy and talk to her. So you're friends with a doll now.

Clyde can be missed! so make sure you get him at the beginning

Comment #13 by Stante

Finally snagged this one. Everyone's biggest concern will be the missable characters, and they are as follows:


Clyde (Must be spoken to before Cartman at the beginning of the game for the achievement to pop although you lose him by the end making the total friend count 121 in all)
Sergeant Yates (Must be spoken to during the Nazi Zombie period any time during the Goth Kids quest)
Shelly Marsh (Must be spoken to after defeating her as the She-Ogre with Stan in your party before Attack the School at his house in her room)
Lemmiwinks (Across from the 4th Gr. classroom during the Attack the School quest in the 5th Gr. classroom)
Polly Prissypants (Only available when the alliance is formed between humans and elves with Cartman in your party at his house in his room)

Bishop of Banff (Must choose to spare and take pig testacles to the Prince of Canada instead of his own)
Ike Broflovski (Must help light his fireworks at the top of Clyde's tower to befriend him)
Big Gay Al (Must answer the iPhone up Mr.Slave's ass, can easily be walked past and missed)

Others mentionable that had me stumped are Mr. and Mrs. Tweek who both befriend you after buying an Ultra Speed Potion from their Coffee Shop, and Sharon Marsh at Tom's Rhinoplasty once you buy any item from her as well.

Hope this helps guys, game on.

Comment #13: Shelly I couldn't even fight her prior to the attack on the school. Both Jimmy's and Stan's quest would't work until the following day. (Maybe related to me taking the Goth's to Cartman instead of Kyle.)

Comment #16 related, There is an invitation to "The Annual Blood Orgy" in Stan's room that tells you the directions.

Comment #17 Timmy locals: Kenny's House, Kyle's Backyard, Cartman's Backyard, U-Stor-It, Token's House, Photo Dojo (across street toward the park), Bus Stop, Post Office, Kevin Stoley's House, Tower of Peace, School, Church.

It consists in became friend of the 121 villagers of the town.In the video description there is a timeline so you can go directly to the part you're looking for.At the beggining of the video I speak in Spanish but it's just and introduction and I don't say anything relevant.

I have all of them except for chris donnely. He keeps telling me that we're friends, but he's the only one who i dont have. I went and finished the game, too. Thinking it might work after the seige, but his friend request still hasnt popped

After doing some research, I'm pretty sure you need all 120 friends+Clyde+all chinpokemon to unlock this Achievement. Working on my 2nd play through hoping to get this!

This one is easy, just time consuming. As long as you make sure you talk to Clyde in the beginning before you talk to Cartman, you'll be fine. Anyways.. Comment #13 and #14 has all of the possible miss-able friends listed. Also lists a few others that may be unnoticeable within your play-through.. As I myself had 119 and figured out I was missing Sharon Marsh at Tom's Rhinoplasty. For a guide look it up on Youtube and watch PS4Trophies, his guides are 100% solid. Cheers.

@ comment #29, Chris Donnely is not miss-able... so.. you should still be able to get the achievement.. anyways.. he's usually available once you've made an alliance with the KKK, or Elves, which ever side you're playing..

Make sure you save just before you kill or save the Bishop of Banff. This way you can get the "More Popular than John Lennon" achievement and the collect all equipment achievement much quicker.

i love this game but ive completed it twice and you cant get the achievements without looking at the guide. miss one item of clothing/weapon/friend and u gotta start all over again

I was at 118 and couldn't figure out who I missed. Went through the list and saw it was Mr and Mrs Tweek. You must buy the $15 ultra speed potion to get them. Also overlooked Mrs Marsh and Shelly, but discovered those pretty easily. Good luck!
