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!
Too bad she is the center of ableist jokes for older audiences.
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
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 :(
He is actually autistic.
He has Apergers
I actually do believe fluttershy has autism. I mean she’s very shy and people with autism are shy.
He shows ADHD symptoms...
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.
Heavily considered to be an Aspie
Maybe. I'm not sure, but I think that Rin or Nico might, if she doesn't.
Compared to the others on this list, her social problems is extremely high. I actually think she has social anxiety.
He might not have it but he’s clearly mentally ill in some way. Similar to what I’m like in real life, Arthur has a strange way of communicating, an unusual nervous tick, and disturbing thoughts. Arthur could just be a general portrayal of mental illness but I still thought this was worth noting.
He has autism because he displays some autistic traits like being imaginative, being shy, etc.
I'd also put Beavis and Butthead on here, with Caillou, Ralph Wiggum.
He should knew Adolf Hitler hated autistic people.
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.
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
