Top 10 Fictional Characters with a Form of Autism Spectrum Disorder
The Top Ten
The only character with autism. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome
Too bad she is the center of ableist jokes for older audiences.
Julia is crazy all the time
So cute. - Ilovestephanie
First off, doesn't anyone even know what autism is? Does anyone know an autistic person personally, or is even one? It's not the same as retardation. So I'm not sure if this list is really about autism, or they're trying to list a character that seems retarded to them.
Go look it up. It's a mental disorder that makes it hard to socialize with anyone. - PerfectImpulseX
Most of these characters aren't autistic, I think it's just the creator of this list trying to subtly insult them. I'm probably wrong, though. - Extractinator04
Actually, I can see why all of these people, except Jeffy, Rick and Papyrus are on here.
I don't think anyone besides julia from seasame street has austism
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 :(
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 - MarioHead
He is actually autistic. - Extractinator04
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. - ETNMystic
He has Apergers
Troll items from anti-bronies. - TeamRocket747
I actually do believe fluttershy has autism. I mean she’s very shy and people with autism are shy. - Ilovestephanie
A lot of people are shy, and my sister and her friend are very confident. - Luckys
He probably has adhd, he also made the movie hilarious he made me laugh at lots of scenes, my most favourite part is when he answers the phone and says, "buddy the elf, what's your favourite color? " Lol makes me laugh every time - trains45
He shows ADHD symptoms...
Maybe. I'm not sure, but I think that Rin or Nico might, if she doesn't. - Mocchiko
Compared to the others on this list, her social problems is extremely high. I actually think she has social anxiety.
She doesn't have autism, she have social anxiety.
I'd also put Beavis and Butthead on here, with Caillou, Ralph Wiggum.
Heavily considered to be an Aspie
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
Venomouskillingmachine - so you mean people with autism have low IQ,
you´re so nice.
Low IQ =/= Autistic - venomouskillingmachine
The first animated character with autism ever
Yes, probably. - Mocchiko
I have Aspergers and I can confirm that Ami totally has it.
I think that she's quiet - Mocchiko
JUST BECAUSE THERE QUIET DOESN'T MEAN THAT THEY HAVE AUTISM - Kuro
Same goes with if they've retardation doesn't mean they're autism either.
I think you don't know what autism really is? - MarioHead
Yes, I agree they have autism. Even I happen to have autism myself too, and once, I cosplayed a male version of Sailor Mercury and had a guy referring to me as "Professor Mercury," and got a kick out of it. And when I had a photo with a lady as Sailor Moon and another with someone as Sailor Mars, I told them about this "Professor Mercury" stuff and even they had a kick out of that and didn't even get upset one bit when I told them I have autism and even told them Sailor Mercury had autism. I explained it and soon they understood what I meant about Sailor Mercury having autism and even found it interesting too. Yep, they were very friendly ladies.
How was he not on here to begin with?
Savant-good at math and Blackjack
Um could any one explain this to me please
More specifically, asperger's' syndrome.
I have autism and I don't like anime at all
Most autistic people love anime. He loves it. He always acts weird. I think SMG4 was making a character people would hate, but I love this adorable aspie!
Yep, he does
It's obvious he has it too. Not only does he have an interest in lots of things and are good at them, but the way he talks, the way he acts, and the way he defends his firends is just great and all, but he's even more special because he just might have the condition.
Indigo league is better - Mocchiko
I demand an explanation - SpectralOwl
Yeah, he does has those traits. But then again, they could come from him being in alcoholic, - SpectralOwl
I want to snuggle her (then live in her brain) - xandermartin98
How is she autistic? - PerfectImpulseX
How is he Autistic?
Maybe - Mocchiko
I agree he probably does, he also quite funny too same with patrick - trains45
I thought GENE was more likely to have ASD.
Tina doesn’t actually have autism. That was just a joke from the first episode. - RalphBob
No he's just dumb - Mocchiko
Rowley isn't autistic, Fregley probably has some form of it. - Extractinator04
Rowley is not autistic. Fregley stopped appearing after book 8 because Jeff Kinney probably realized that Fregley was an inaccurate depiction of autism. But Captain Underpants's Melvin is worse.
Actually, I can see why, unlike papyrus, rick and jeffy being on here - SpectralOwl
He's an idiot not autistic
And can you explain, Please? - SpectralOwl
Quite the offensive STEREOTYPE of autism, at that - xandermartin98
