Infographic: Which Wes Anderson character are you?

If you're a fan of Wes Anderson movies because you felt you could relate to the characters, then this is the infographic for you! Follow this flow chart (created by Jennifer Lewis at Flavorwire) to find out which Wes Anderson character you are. (For the record, I'm Steve Zissou. I haven't decided how to feel about this yet, but it's Bill Murray, so I'm leaning towards "tickled.") (via Flavorwire)



  1. I’m the guy that was raised by distant and eccentric parents, and now I am having a hard time transitioning into an emotionally stable adulthood. Which character am I?

    Answer: all of them, including the next 6 Wes Anderson movies.

      1. Yes! Up next? Bill Murray in a retro sci-fi space colony, with a hyper intelligent robot that is emotionally confused!

  2. I am Mordecai as well. I am fine with that, but if I had ever been arrested, I could have been Dignan. Which would have been way cool.

      1. Yeah, that’s the stuff. Ima count my speeding tickets as being arrested and be fucking innocent now too.

  3. great…i’m dudley. not really sure why though. it would be great if the same amount of energy that went into making the chart also went into making it more complex and also writing something about each particular ending.

    You are Dudley. You have an incredible sense of hearing and powers of observation are astounding. etc. etc.

    @thisjenlewis. ok, that’s round one. before you jump back into illustrator, get yourself a pen and some paper and start writing and sketching out a diagram. maybe also, get a critique from your coworkers and friends before re-releasing the next round version. sorry to sound so harsh but the graphic is pretty but could be a lot better.

    1. I dunno, it was all of free. And you don’t have to be Dudley–all you have to do is go back and do it again, but this time see the 2–or just say you do.

    2. sorry. it just didn’t “WOW” me. i just thought it could be better and i’m not afraid to give criticism. believe it or not, i can take criticism, too. i have a visual arts degree and have been employed as a graphic designer and motion designer for many years. it’s what i do.

      choosing a limited color scheme, using futura and vectorizing characters from wes anderson movies is fine but if you’re going to emulate someone then go for the gold and do it the best you can. anderson’s (and wilson’s) characters are rich in the detail that this flow chart is missing.

      1. Fair enough, but too much graphic design goes all over the place with fonts and colors, and the fonts and colors here are consistent with the movies. I like the simplicity myself.

  4. I am unfamiliar with this Bottle Rocket movie I seem to have rated, but note with some amusement that the one difference between myself and the two other people I know who got Steve Zissou was that they were more ‘comfortable with water sports’. 

    I might be working off a different definition of that term than other people. 

    1. Do check out Bottle Rocket! It’s much less stylized and fussily art directed than his later stuff- and may be one of my favorites for exactly that reason.

  5. I’m Royal…
