Sheldon Cooper from the Big Bang Theory.

Because... well, if you've ever seen the show you can see why.

I agree. I'd say Edward Scissorhands. He lives alone, he's not good at socializing (even though he tries to and likes making friends), he's oversensitive, and his "scissorhands" provide a metaphor about his "special talent/interest" (something most of us aspies have) which makes him special. On the other hand, those "scissorhands" also prevent him from any sort of physical contact, 'cos he can "hurt" people (allegory to us unwillingly being offensive). I think that character comprises an excellent metaphor! :wink:

Number of fictional characters with AS < number of fictional characters canonically stated to have AS << number of fictional characters nominated as having AS on these threads.

Lies. What is this blasphemy? They all have Aspergers, every last one of them. Just look at ponies, Twilight is a nerd, so she must have AS, and Pinkie's crazy, and Fluttershy is shy, so they BOTH are aspies, and Applejack is a bad liar, and Rarity obssed over small details, and Rainbow Dash is a tomboy...you know what, there is no denying it, they are all aspies. EVERY. LAST. ONE. OF. THEM.

[I'm being sarcastic, in case you can't tell. ]
