Jaiden Animations is a Content Creator on YouTube

Jaiden (​born: September 27, 1997 (1997-09-27) [age 23]), better known online as Jaiden Animations, is an American YouTuber, animator, artist, and comedian who creates storytime videos and animations about her life, and speedpaints. She also creates video game centric animated videos. She has another channel called Jaidenhere, however its only public video is an early version of JaidenAnimations the Anime.

Personal life

Jaiden was born and raised in Arizona, United States, and later would move to Los Angeles, California, United States. Her mother is Japanese and her father is American, she has a younger brother named Jax. During her childhood, she enjoyed drawing and playing casual video games. As she grew older, she began participating in competitive sports, such as tennis and karate; she also took music lessons, such as piano and violin, and learned the recorder through compulsory school lessons. She follows a vegan diet, which is most likely due to her concerns about how animals are treated in farms.

Jaiden is shy and tends to be nervous when interacting with people, although she is quite kind and considerate. She talks about these traits in many of her videos, the most notable one being “Why I Don’t Have a Face Reveal," in which she also talks about her problems with self-consciousness and body dysmorphia. Her music video "Empty" made with Boyinaband touched on this further, detailing her struggle with an eating disorder. In a video titled "Anxiety is the Greatest! (jk it can go jump off a microwave)," Jaiden talks about her struggles with anxiety and depression.

Collaborations

Jaiden took part in MrBeast's 100k YouTuber Battle Royale in a team with TheOdd1sOut and Anthony Padilla. She fired the winning shot for the team and won $33.33k.

She was invited to make an animation on YouTube Rewind 2017, with her animation being in the video's credits. In the 2018 Rewind, Jaiden appeared in one of the scenes with PewDiePie's chair, recreating the "BUT Can you do this?" meme. After a few hours, fans also spotted several references to various memes such as "sub 2 PewDiePie", "Somebody toucha my spaghet" (Though people thought it was B*tch Lasagna and she said it could be either), KSIvsLogan, Ugandan Knuckles, Smash Bros letter, "Sociopaths 101" (A reference to Jake Paul or Shane Dawson, but it was too small to read.), and Ari. Many fans believed her part to be the only good part of the video, as the rest of the video was heavily criticized.

Jaiden appeared in TheOdd1sOut's card game Cafe Chaos as a card in the Animator's Pack. She is portrayed with Ari, who is comically cursing.

She took part in a YouTube gameshow that was hosted by CallMeCarson, and later collaborated on a Minecraft video with him. This video was later unlisted following controversy aimed towards Carson.

Relationships

She is close friends with many fellow animator YouTubers on the platform such as TheOdd1sOut, TimTom, and SomeThingElseYT, forming a gang called the Boise Squad. The previous Animation Squad, however, included herself, TheOdd1sOut, ItsAlexClark, and TonyVToons. Rebecca Parham from Let Me Explain Studios is also a close friend to Jaiden Animations, but she isn't in either gang.

She has mentioned that she's been on dates on multiple occasions in the past, although her dating life as a whole is currently kept private. In a livestream, she stated that she does not consider herself 'fully gay' or 'fully straight', also mentioning that, while not impossible, she 'finds it very hard to [...] romantically like people' [1].

Pets

Ari

Ari on toast

Ari (born: April 29, 2016 (2016-04-29) [age 5]) is Jaiden's pet green-cheeked conure. Jaiden jokingly likes to call him a "dog". Ari has often been featured in Jaiden's videos and continues to be the star of her Instagram and Twitter.

Ari often pushes stuff off tables, throws strawberries, and screams a lot. Ari also has a habit of singing along to songs, although in Jaiden's words he "has no rhythm and is pretty tone-deaf."

At the current moment, Ari's gender is unknown. Male and female green cheek conures look very similar and are almost impossible to tell their gender without a DNA test, which Jaiden mentions are too expensive for her to feel comfortable paying for. Some sources say that Ari is female because of the color of their cere (the pale area above the beak), however, this is incorrect because those sources confuse Ari as being a budgie, a different kind of bird. In fact, Ari is likely a male because it has been shown that many male green cheek conures have gray/black feet, while many females have pink feet.

Though it is still unknown how reliable that method is. Some people consider Ari a boy as Jaiden sometimes uses male pronouns for Ari like him or he. She also jokingly calls other parrots Aris, like "caring for an Ari can be hard" and "you have an Ari?"

The very first video that Ari appeared in was the "New Member of the Family!" video. She/he has also appeared in "Ari's First Christmas feat. Weeaboo Misaki", "Happy Birthday Ari!", "Living with Ari", "Ari's Birthday! (again)" "Throwing Ari a Birthday Party", and the behind the scenes of her music video "Empty". Ari has been featured in many merch items, such as T-shirts, stickers, and plushies, and Jaiden's merch line 'Arigato' was most likely named after Ari.

Tofu

Tofu (born: June 20, 2019 (2019-06-20) [age 2]) is Jaiden's pet, adopted by her during October 2019. She revealed the bird's existence on a charity stream for United Way.[2] Unlike Ari, Tofu is a confirmed female, as the breeder sexed her. In MrBeast's Creator Games, there were two bird cages shown in the room she was streaming from, which suggest that Ari and Tofu are kept in separate cages.

Trivia

  • She is of Japanese descent.
  • She is an animal lover and had two dogs when she was a child. Jaiden's parents acquired the first dog, a collie called Keisha, long before she was born, and as such she doesn't remember much interaction with her. When she was seven, her family got another dog, which they named Scruffy. She currently has a bird named Ari, whom she jokingly calls a dog, and a second bird called Tofu. She also shared in a video that to distract her from the idea of a dog when she was young, her parents got her an army of goldfish.
    • The fish mostly died within a few weeks (possibly due to not cycling the aquarium which is a common mistake), though once Jaiden got two that didn't die. One of them was called Goldie while the other one was probably Fishy. Goldie later developed a fungal condition that made it turn white, and the fish was renamed Rainbow.
      • Eventually the fish were given away and they died.
    • Additionally, both Jaiden's Ari and JonTronShow's pet bird (Jacques) is the same species, albeit a different color.
    • During childhood, Jaiden also wanted various other pets, including mice, yellow-naped parrots, sugar gliders, a dog and rats. Despite a high amount of begging she never got any of them except the dog.
  • She went vegan for one week after being nominated to do the "7 Day Vegan Challenge, baby (solves all yo' problems)" by TheOdd1sOut (who "created" the name to this challenge), who she frequently collabs with.
    • This nomination was mostly a joke, as Jaiden was vegan before accepting this challenge.
  • She hates the color green (rather ironically), and her favorite color is purple.
  • She once dyed her hair purple to look like her favorite YouTuber at the time, iHasCupquake.
  • She also had red streaks in her hair when she was younger, which she said was similar to Boyinaband's.
  • She adds fanart that was sent to her at the end card of her videos.
  • She said that she is allergic to cats (cat hair), during her 100,000 Subscriber special when she was looking at her old drawings.
  • In the video "Christmas Trivia Game! (Jaiden shot us)" by TimTom, Jaiden remarks that she is around 5' 7" (170cm), the same as Santa Claus.
  • She and Domics have the same birthday.
  • Her merch store contains two 'lines' of merch, her original kind and the new 'Arigato' one.
  • Jaiden Animations has been awarded the 2020 Streamy Awards in the Animated category.
  • Jaiden enjoyed playing Minecraft as a kid, but had never beaten the game, mostly playing on servers.
  • One of Jaiden’s favorite video game franchises is Animal Crossing.
