Animation is the best, but how much better would it be if we all knew our favorite anime character personality types? Without further ado, I’m taking a look at ten of the most prominent ESFP anime characters , and what makes them so lovable.
1/25. Grell (Black Butler)
This character is a quick study and will often come across as being wise, even if they are not always right. Make sure you listen to this character when they speak, because they rarely say more than they need. This character also possesses surprising dexterity and skill — it’s likely that you’ll be thoroughly impressed by the level of ability your character has.
2/25. Gyokko (Demon Slayer)
Gyokko is an ESFP, you see. It’s pretty clear when you first see him. He loves himself and his actions. He is also an extrovert. You also see a lot of the usual ESFP’s flaws with this character. He is quite impulsive and has a lot of emotional outbursts — just like his fellow ESFPs! Sometimes, he’s petty or jealous.
3/25. Roger (American Dad)
An ESFP has a sharp eye for detail and is excellent at getting the most from any given situation. Their natural warmth and ability to improvise help them connect with others while their fascination with people and willingness to serve make them great team players. In the workplace, they are often found in careers in which they are able to use these strengths to help others by bringing out the best in potential customers, coworkers, and employees.
4/25. Doctor Hartman (Family Guy)
Doctor Hartman is an excellent example of the ESFP personality type in action. He is quite impulsive and quick to anger. This character will struggle to see past the current reality, as he is struggling to cope with his own and others’ emotions. He does not hesitate to sue people if necessary, which demonstrates his assertiveness and extroversion. He’s also lazy and quite incompetent as a doctor.
5/25. Jasmine (Aladdin)
It’s no secret that Aladdin is one of the more popular Disney films. Jasmine is among the most popular princesses, and there are a lot of strong-willed ESFPs out there (why do you think they ended up marrying an ISTP?). They’re extroverts, they love exploring outdoors, and they don’t shy away from a good debate — if anything, they enjoy it.
6/25. Black Star (Soul Eater)
Black star is a unique assassin. He’s weird for an assassin — but that is part of his charm! He loves to ACTUALLY talk (instead of spouting one-liners) and loves limelight! Black star is also very determined and focused. He is also seen as self-centered, but we can’t deny that he gets the job done. We believe that Black Star is an ESFP 8w7, who like to act before thinking.
7/25. Ayame Sohma ( Fruits Basket)
Ayame is an ESFP. While he may act a bit brash and overconfident, he cares deeply for his friends and family — just like any ESFP. He’s loyal, and quick to show it. He’s also an idealist and a realist, and isn’t afraid to speak his mind — though sometimes this can lead him into trouble.
Remember that awkward moment when you first realized we were the same age?
8/25. Eren Yeager (Attack on Titan)
For those of you who haven’t heard, Attack on Titan has become a worldwide phenomenon. With its solid set of characters, incredible storyline and high-quality animation, it has won the hearts of millions and millions of viewers worldwide. But what makes this series so unique? Why is it that so many people all over the world are so attracted to Eren Yeager, Mikasa Ackerman and the rest of the characters in Attack on Titan ?
9/25. Hand Demon (Demon Slayer)
The Hand Demon’s a charming character — he can often be found telling jokes in a disarming manner. Seated on his throne, oh, so regally, The Hand Demon will proudly show off all of the tools he uses to kill demon slayers. He’s particularly fond of his claws and teeth, but it’s his hands that are truly impressive. I mean, who else has hands like him?
10/25. Misa Amane (Death Note)
Misa Amane has something that most ESFP anime characters don’t have: brains. Sure, she can be a little impulsive and reckless, but the way she shows off her skills really makes you think about how well she does her work. Though she can sometimes seem childish in serious situations, she certainly isn’t stupid — and this just one of the reasons why Misa Amane is so good at what she does.
11/25. Yuji Itadori (Jujutsu Kaisen)
The more we watched Attack on Titan, the more we realized that no one character really stood out as an ESFP. While Eren and Yuki have a lot of extroverted personality traits, neither are comical with their antics. And while they both have a lot of emotion, they mostly display anger. This can be healthy and balanced, but it’s not always indicative of an ESFP.
12/25. Ty Lee (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
We’re really excited to write about Ty Lee, who is an ESFP anime character that simply demands attention. She’s a young girl who wants to be famous and really wants to share her talents with the world. She clearly has all the traits of an ESFP, which is the Meyers Briggs personality type of the star performer.
13/25. Julie Makimoto (Bakugan: Battle Brawlers)
Want to have a fun time playing with toys? Develop your kids’ imagination and focus by turning them into the next Bakugan Master. Your little one will love playing with these figures, as they are not just toys, but also battling partners in a mind-blowing adventure. They’ll never know when they’ll be called on to fight!
14/25. Gon Freecss (Hunter X Hunter)
Gon’s unwavering courage has led him on an adventure that has taken him across the world. While his optimistic spirit and determination can be scary for opponents, his unwavering courage and positive outlook is what keeps him going through the toughest of times.
Gon’s emotional and impulsive nature can make it difficult for him to see reason or focus on the task at hand. However, when he is in a calm state of mind, his creative problem-solving abilities are second to none. His S-P qualities make him an asset during crises, even if problems seem insurmountable at times.
15/25. Son Goku (Dragon Ball Z)
Goku is the life of any party — and that’s not limited just to a fight! He always lives in the present, as if there’s nothing more important than enjoying himself right at that moment. There are no worries, no fears and no consequences — just a wild (and frequently mind-blowing) ride! He has a penchant for fun, which makes him a favourite among the rest of the Dragon Ball cast.
But just because he’s a hero, doesn’t mean he won’t get angry when his friends are in danger. In fact, that makes him super angry. Especially when they start doing things he doesn’t like. He has a core set of values, and if someone violates those, he will stop at nothing to protect his friends from the bad guys. His personality is complicated and mysterious – but what exactly are his core values?
16/25. Don (The Promised Neverland)
Don’s devotion to his siblings is evident from the outset. He does whatever it takes to keep them safe and away from their difficult pasts. However, he can sometimes be a bit brash and overbearing in his attempts to protect them — as seen through his lighthearted rivalry with Norman and violent clashes with Emma. It isn’t until near the end of his time at Grace Field that he realizes these actions may not have been the best way to accomplish his goals.
Over the course of this series, Don Draper learns about the importance of intuition, and takes charge when he needs to. He also learns how to use his tertiary brain, making him a great leader when difficult situations arise.
17/25. Naruto Uzumaki (Naruto)
ESFPs are known to be fun-loving and impulsive, but they take on a new maturity as they grow up. This means that your ESFP friends will likely appear energetic and positive, but also calm and thoughtful at larger life stages — such as when thinking about whether to raise kids or not. They’re always ready for something new!
Sakura’s biggest development comes in her Introverted Feeling stage , historically labelled ‘Fi’. She uses her new-found Introverted Feeling to think before acting, and relies on this when making decisions. In the show she becomes much more serious about her values and what drives her, finally realising that it’s not Sasuke that she cares for, but Naruto.
18/25. Sasha Braus (Attack on Titan)
ESFP types are known for their childlike enthusiasm, playful energy and unfailing zest for life. The INFJ is no exception to this rule, and while she’s matured like the wine she enjoys, she remains soft-hearted, sensitive and compassionate.
Whether it’s leading a rescue effort in the midst of a zombie apocalypse or reflecting on the state of the world with her best friend, the ENFP can always be counted on to make a difference.
19/25. Ejiro Kirishima (My Hero Academia)
Eijiro is a 24-year-old Red Riot cosplayer who dreams of becoming the world’s best professional wrestler and saving up enough money to one day open his very own boba shop. He has many fantastic qualities, such as his kindness and selflessness, but most especially his passion and determination. He strives to be honest and kind, often being moved to tears when he can see people demonstrating such traits.
20/25. Shoyo Hinata (Haikyuu!!)
Hinata Hyuga is the underdog. He’s not one of those players who get talked up to be some kind of monster amongst men. The guy has been underestimated his whole life and he’s finally had enough. He’s here to prove something to the world: That he can win more than just a few games – that he can win against anyone, anytime, anywhere.
21/25. Inosuke Hashibira (Demon Slayer)
As a dominant Ne user, Inosuke has a tendency to get caught up in the endless possibilities that life presents. He loves to make connections between unrelated events and objects, looking for the bigger picture and making sense of everything around him. His rule is simple: if something can be done, it should be done — and he’s not one to shy away from a unique idea if it means getting the job done.
Inosuke is a natural born problem solver — after all, he was raised by wolves. He’s always ready to take on any challenge that comes his way and live up to his own high ideals of what it means to be the best demon slayer.
22/25. Mina Ashido (My Hero Academia)
Mina Ashido is an ESFP, which means that she dances, shops, and spends a lot of time with her friends. But off-duty she has a strong sense of right and wrong. When it comes to battling villains, she can be a surprisingly courageous hero! She’s quick to make decisions and can react quickly to incoming information — which helps her use her acid quirk to its best advantage.
23/25. Creamy Mami
One of the most famous ESFP anime characters is Yu Morisawa, also known as Creamy Mami in The Magic Angel. This 16-year-old girl is a famous singer who performs magic — and you’d probably get along with her just fine. On the surface, she seems like a really intriguing person: she gets paid to sing, do magic and move crowds — not a bad way to make a living!
24/25. Kotaro Tatsumi
Kotaro Tatsumi is a sixteen-year-old aspiring idol producer in an alternate universe where Japan is ruled by zombies. In his quest to become the most popular idol producer in Saga prefecture (and, eventually, the world,) he must work with his fellow idols to gain prestige and fame — and maybe even develop a few friendships along the way.
An ESFP will often be the first person to notice potential problems with a current way of doing things. They’ll have an eye for detail and immediately begin finding ways to solve these problems, while entirely ignoring the fact that they may be better off having a seat and shutting their mouth, as most of their brilliant ideas are usually overzealous and won’t even get past the drawing board.
25/25. Minako Aino
Minako Aino is an ESFP Anime character from the anime series ‘Sailor Moon’. She’s definitely not one to take the world seriously, and is probably best at engaging in things like athletics, instead of more detail-oriented and possibly boring things like “Academics”. She refers to herself with made-up names like “The Goddess of Love.
