Top 10 Fictional Characters with a Form of Autism Spectrum Disorder
She is such a sweetheart. I don't understand why some people make jokes about autism. Autism is very serious. She is a great way to help little ones learn about serious things.
I just absolutely hate it when people treat autism wrong. Saying stuff like, "autism is crazy." It is one of the world's most serious things.
Personally, I think She is one of the best characters on the show!
The way she acts, talks, cries, and behaves proofs that she has autism.
I definitely can see her being on the spectrum.
I think she has autism. She's cute.
He is actually autistic.
Not trying to be mean. Genuine question. Dan is obviously not one to shy away from real issues that people deal with when writing characters so I wanted to see if anyone thinks this was intended.
Now I should disclaim that I'm not an expert on Autism and what telling symptoms of it are, but I've noticed a lot of similarities between Yuri and a few people I'm very close to who have some kind of Autism Spectrum Disorder. I'll list them here
(Mostly about Act 1 Yuri by the way)
1. Having one or two subjects/hobbies that they are extremely into and passionate about
2. Being able to talk confidently about these passions for a long time but struggling with basic conversation otherwise
3. Social anxiety
4. Having collections
5. Low self-confidence
6. Impulsively putting self in social situations, then not knowing how to handle it and panicking
7. Overthinking, usually in a negative way
8. Struggling to articulate thoughts and sometimes regretting what ...more
Should be listed higher than Jeffy. Calling Jeffy an accurate portrayal of autistic people is like calling Jar Jar Binks an accurate portrayal of black people.
I actually do believe fluttershy has autism. I mean she's very shy and people with autism are shy.
Fluttershy is autistic?! She's my most relateable character and my parents think I might be autistic
Fluttershy has autism!
I demand an explanation
Rick is so hot!
I'm not surprise of he has Autism. He's still a great character!
I see... He's still my favourite character though!
As someone on the spectrum, I believe that she has Aspergers. She has quite a few traits of the disorder especially early in the series. The fact that the entire premise of Friendship is Magic revolves around "special talents" tied to the ponies cutie marks leads me to believe that most, if not all of the ponies are on the spectrum in some way. Twilight is just the most obvious choice due to her having a need for structure and order, as well as being hyperlexic (reads a lot), having a huge interest in history, and often having to relearn friendship lessons every now and then. Best autistic Pony EVER!
I think I read somewhere that Lauren Faust wanted Twilight to be stated as having Asperger's Syndrome, and she definitely displays a lot of the symptoms and characteristics.
Twilight sparkle has autism!
Still doesn't give him an excuse to be rude!
Tina doesn't actually have autism. That was just a joke from the first episode.
She fits perfectly in most of the signs of the autistic spectrum. Maybe that's what makes her a character that you either love or hate. Obviously her social interactions are pretty hard but when it comes to things of her interest such as videogames or anime she's a bit more confident
Compared to the others on this list, her social problems is extremely high. I actually think she has social anxiety.
Maybe. I'm not sure, but I think that Rin or Nico might, if she doesn't.
So that's why he's smart
He has autism because he displays some autistic traits like being imaginative, being shy, etc.
