PerfectImpulseX

The Top Ten

1 Julia - Sesame Street Julia - Sesame Street

The only character with autism. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

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

So cute. - Ilovestephanie

2 Tsubomi Hanasaki / Cure Blossom - HeartCatch Precure Tsubomi Hanasaki / Cure Blossom - HeartCatch Precure

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

How was he not on here to begin with?

Savant-good at math and Blackjack

The first animated character with autism ever

I have Aspergers and I can confirm that Ami totally has it.

21 Joule - Azure Striker Gunvolt
22 Rin Hoshizora - Love Live! School Idol Project
23 Tina Belcher - Bob's Burgers Tina Belcher - Bob's Burgers

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

Peridot is probably the only autistic character in Steven Universe. I don't believe Steven or Pearl are autistic. - ResonatingScreamS

How is she autistic? I don't think she is - ResonatingScreamS

26 Rowley - Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Actually, I can see why, unlike papyrus, rick and jeffy being on here - SpectralOwl

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.

27 Rick Sanchez - Rick and Morty Rick Sanchez - Rick and Morty Rick Sanchez is a fictional character from the American animated television series Rick and Morty, aired on Adult Swim.

I demand an explanation - SpectralOwl

Yeah, he does has those traits. But then again, they could come from him being in alcoholic, - SpectralOwl

28 Tomoko Kuroki - WataMote Tomoko Kuroki - WataMote
29 Fishy Boopkins - SMG4

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!

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.
