    Steven Anita Smith
    "Dad, I don't want to go to camp. It's hot, and there's always something crawling in your sleeping bag, like a spider or a counselor!!!"
    Gender: Male
    Type: Nerd
    Age: 14
    Species: Human
    Portrayed by: Scott Grimes
    Status: Alive
    Media of origin: American Dad!


    Steven Anita "Steve" Smith (born May 13, 1992) is a fictional character in the animated television series American Dad!, voiced by Scott Grimes. He is Stan and Francine's 14-year-old son and Hayley's younger brother as well as the youngest of the series' six main characters. He is voiced by Scott Grimes.

    Steve only has 3 human geeky friends that always stand by his side no matter what crazy scenario is going on. However, he has the strongest friendship with the family alien Roger, as they frequently go on wild adventures together. Steve was born on May 13.

    Steve's original design was much geekier and gawky and he was voiced by Ricky Blitt. Halfway through production, Grimes replaced Blitt and Steve's design was made to be more attractive, so he would be less comparable to Neil Goldman from Family Guy.

    Why He Will Make You Say "Aw, Yeah!"

    1. Addressing the Elephant in the Room: His singing voice. Scott Grimes deserves credit for giving Steve an amazing singing voice, most notably in songs such as "Bad Bad Boy", "Daddy's Gone", and "Is She Not Hot Enough?"
    2. Steve is a precocious high-schooler who is determined to get some action with the ladies and geek his nerdy heart out and it is miles better than making him be written as a cliched/geeky nerd, similar to Neil Goldman from Family Guy.
    3. No matter how many girlfriends he's lost, Steve never gives up on trying to get laid; after a moment of heartbreak, he simply picks himself back up and moves on to the next Girl of the Week.
    4. He has a great friendship with Roger, which is one of the best part of the series and is a fan favorite trait. They are both American Dad!'s most popular characters thanks to their fantastic chemistry. This is most iconic with "Wheels and the Legman", where the two manage to be a great duo.
    5. Despite being wimpy for the most part, he has shown to be a bad-ass on some occasions, most notably in the show's 200th episode.
    6. Generally a nice and pleasant kid, but it's been proven time and time again that when pushed, he will fight back. For example, in "Irregarding Steve", he puts up with Beauregard's relentless taunts and insults up until the point where Beauregard begins to insult Stan, at which point Steve snaps and beats him unconscious.
    7. He manages to be great friends with Snot, Barry and Toshi and also has great chemistry with them.
    8. Much like most characters on American Dad!, he has a great design.
    9. Scott Grimes does a memorable and fantastic job voicing him.

    Bad Qualities

    1. He can be a huge butt-monkey at times since he is always bullied by the kids at school and was even bullied by his own father.
    2. His original design and voice acting before they changed everything for the better, looked awful and Ricky Blitt did a mediocre job voicing him.
    3. He has a tendency to be unlikable himself. Likewise, his voice has a tendency to be irritating to listen to and he manages to act bratty himself.
    4. He's one of the victims of abuse because of Stan and Roger.
    5. Like most of his family members (except Hayley and Klaus) and several other characters, Steve became the first member of the Smith family to suffer character derailment in season 6 onwards, as he was flanderized into a spoiled, selfish, arrogant, and lustful brat.
