Top 10 Fictional Characters with a Form of Autism Spectrum Disorder

The Top Ten
Julia - Sesame Street

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!

Too bad she is the center of ableist jokes for older audiences.

Yuri - Doki Doki Literature Club

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

Black Manta - Aquaman Black Manta is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character first appeared in Aquaman #35 and is the archenemy of the superhero Aquaman.

He is actually autistic.

Yui Hirasawa - K-On!

The way she acts, talks, cries, and behaves proofs that she has autism.

I think she has autism. She's cute.

She is so cute I think she might :(

Tsubomi Hanasaki / Cure Blossom - HeartCatch Precure
Pascal - Tales of Graces F
Fluttershy - My Little Pony Fluttershy is a female pegasus pony from the 2010-2019 animated TV show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. She is a kind pegasus and is very timid and shy. She takes care of the animals. She represents the element of kindness

I actually do believe fluttershy has autism. I mean she’s very shy and people with autism are shy.

Twilight Sparkle - My Little Pony Twilight Sparkle is the primary main character of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. She is a female unicorn pony who transforms into an Alicorn and becomes a princess in Magical Mystery Cure.

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.

Buddy - Elf

He shows ADHD symptoms...

Carl Gould - Arthur

He has Apergers

The Newcomers

? Gene Belcher - Bob's Burgers Gene Belcher is the middle child on the show Bob's Burgers. He loves music and has a Casio keyboard that he uses to write songs and play back fart sounds.
? Karna - Fate/Grand Order
The Contenders
Shinn Asuka - Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny Shinn Asuka is a fictional character in the Japanese science fiction anime television series Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny by Sunrise, part of the Gundam franchise.
Tomoko Kuroki - WataMote

Compared to the others on this list, her social problems is extremely high. I actually think she has social anxiety.

Hanayo Koizumi - Love Live! School Idol Project

Maybe. I'm not sure, but I think that Rin or Nico might, if she doesn't.

Hikaru - With the Light
Arnie Grape - What's Eating Gilbert Grape?
Eric Cartman - South Park Eric Theodore Cartman is one of the main characters in the animated television series South Park, created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and voiced by Trey Parker.

I'd also put Beavis and Butthead on here, with Caillou, Ralph Wiggum.

He should knew Adolf Hitler hated autistic people.

Kira Yamato - Mobile Suit Gundam SEED
Hayate Yagami - Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha
L - Death Note L Lawliet, exclusively known by the mononym L, is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

Heavily considered to be an Aspie

Johnny Do - Psi-Force
Jeffy - SuperMarioLogan

Let me explain:
Bullet Bill bullies him all the time. That's why he doesn't want to go to school.
He has no friends.
He loves baby songs.
He sleeps in a crib.
He always needs a doctor.
Mario loves him ( If any of you guys say anything bad about Jeffy, I'm going to get mad. I also have autism)
He doesn't make eye contact.
He makes funny names.
He's funny.
His real mom abused him.
He get temper tantrums
And he can't help himself

Either that or he's retarded.

Jeffy is always crazy

Yep he has autism

Chris Griffin - Family Guy Christopher Cross "Chris" Griffin is a fictional character from the American animated television series Family Guy.
Jade Curtiss - Tales of the Abyss
