Here are the list of 35 Amazing INFJ Anime Characters
1/35. Gyomei Himejima (Demon Slayer)
I’m an INFJ, and I can tell you that Gyomei is most definitely an INFJ, too! He’s warm on the surface and intimidating at first, but underneath it all, he’s a bit soft-spoken and extremely sensitive. He hates naysayers and tends to be the one who forces his beliefs on others. But don’t fret — sometimes he just needs to know you’ve got his back.
2/35. Eustass Captain Kid (Eustass Kid)
Now, most people would say that this is a classic example of an INTJ. He’s rude, stubborn and craves to be at the top. He also has a sensitive side and loves to study his enemies. People who know him would say that he’s a very loyal friend and when you need someone there for you, Eustass will be the first person you think of.
3/35. Alice Gehabich (Bakugan Battle Brawlers)
Alice is the epitome of kindness. An integral part of Dan’s team, she is often underestimated—but that’s because people aren’t paying attention! Her insights are always spot on, especially when it comes to her leader. She has great faith in Dan and Drago. Will Dan ever admit Drago is too powerful? We’ll find out soon enough!
4/35. Jinora (Avatar: Legend of Korra)
If you are a big fan of The Legend of Korra, there’s no way you don’t know about Jinora. She is depicted as smart and reserved. She is also passionate about the world and likes to study a lot. We definitely feel she is an INFJ-A, with INTJ leanings.
5/35. Mayuri Shiina (Steins Gate)
INFJs are often described as detached and impersonal people. However, this concept is entirely false. We’re here to tell you why. Being ‘impersonal’ on the inside doesn’t mean the same thing as being ‘impersonal’ on the outside. It’s commonly misunderstood that INFJs don’t care about other people, but quite the opposite: they are constantly appraising others’ actions and words, trying to determine how best to handle things.
6/35. Kiritsugu Emiya (Fate/Hero)
Kiritsugu struggles to find his true identity from childhood. He is someone who feels deeply, and struggles to express himself within the traditional social structure. This sounds a lot like an INFJ 4w5. We truly understand how this character feels, and think that he is clearly an INFJ.
7/35. Sosuke Aizen (Bleach)
Sosuke is a complex character, who is both manipulative and self-absorbed. He’s not very good at hiding his selfish motivations, though he does have a reputation for being polite and soft-spoken. In fact, Sosuke has quite a lot of traits in common with an INFJ — particularly the ‘dark side’. And while you may see him as a flawless hero, to those around him he is far from perfect.
8/35. Pocahontas (Pocahontas)
The story of Pocahontas is a popular one. She was very reserved, but also very determined to stick up for her family and friends. I’ve seen her in many debates, and she would always be the voice of reason at the end. Honestly, I don’t think she could make a decision if it wasn’t entirely rational. In a way she was the Queen of Rationality.
9/35. Satoru Fujinuma (Erased)
Satoru often seems to be lost in his own thoughts. He’s quiet and reserved, but he does care about the people around him. He’s also smart, and he puts that gift to use as a programmer. He’s a true idealist who sometimes has trouble relating to real-world norms, but that just means he needs someone who can help him feel comfortable taking initiative.
10/35. Norman (The Promised Neverland)
The most commonly used words to describe Norman are ‘calm and kind’. However, it becomes clear that he is a very complex character. Throughout the anime series, he faces many issues on morality, which others may misunderstand. It’s not unusual for INFJs to face dark sides they should embrace. With Norman, you get a glimpse into the life of an INFJ.
11/35. Kiba (Wolf Rain)
Kiba is one of the most important characters in our series. He’s an INFJ, which we know because of several reasons. One, his brooding and aloof look speaks to his personality type. Two, he’s cool and soft-spoken, but will definitely fight back when needed. Three, he has a hot temper that shows he isn’t afraid of showing it when necessary.
12/35. Ren Krawler (Bakugan)
Ren Krawler is an INFJ. He, like an estimated 1% of the global population, has a tendency to see the world in a different light, and acts accordingly. In fact, he’s even got his own anime series dedicated to how he sees life! With such an unusual personality type, Ren’s still able to find respect within his surroundings, as well as love for the people around him. How does that happen?
13/35. Mira Fermin (Bakugan: Battle Brawlers)
Would you like to know more about Mira? If so, keep reading! She is a textbook incarnation of the INFJ 3w4. As leader of the Bakugan resistance, Mira has all the power she needs in order to do whatever it takes to achieve her goals. And God knows she’s talented: here’s a short video of her in action in the Bakugan anime series.
14/35. Saki Watanabe (Shin Sekai yori)
Saki is a highly sensitive person, who frequently finds herself alone. She does her best to minimize disruption for others, and makes sure that she’s not causing any trouble. Sensitive people are often misunderstood, but Saki does her absolute best to help out other people in need whenever she can. If you come across a sensitive person in your life, try to understand them and make them feel welcome.
15/35. Seishin Muroi (Manga series)
This character is an INFJ. He’s calm, patient and hard-working — just like you! While he puts on a spiritual, gentle exterior, nobody knows what he’s thinking or what he desires. If you see this man, write down his name and remember it because he’s bound to make history. He definitely deserves a spot on our list of inspiring INFJs!
16/35. Yuki Sohma (Fruit Basket)
Yuki is a charming prince who most people love to have around. However, he has issues with laziness, clumsiness and complacency — not to mention a traumatic past of child abuse. Yuki is an INFP-J (introversion, intuition, feeling and judging). This means that he sometimes struggles with certain things and can be sulky more than once. And this is something that many other INFP-Js will understand.
17/35. Kanade Tachibana (Angel Beats Anime)
Kanada’s listless facade is a mask for a bright, sunlit core of emotions that you wish you could see more often. From the outside she seems like a cold, detached person… but isn’t that just because your vision doesn’t reach far enough? Don’t be fooled by her plain clothes or her quiet way of speaking — there’s a spark of excitement in Kanada that you probably can’t imagine, and you’re missing out on it!
18/35. Izuku Midoriya (My Hero Academia)
INFJs aren’t necessarily dreamers, but they do love to strategize. This character trait can sometimes make them painfully aware of their shortcomings. And yet, Midoriya is still the epitome of a healthy INFJ. He has a visionary focus and dreams of change, yet he knows that one person can’t be responsible for making the world a better place.
19/35. Armin Arlert (Attack on Titan)
When Armin isn’t busy saving the world alongside Eren and Mikasa, you can probably find him at home with his family. He has a charming passion for anything that involves art, and even dreams of becoming a manga artist when he retires from the Survey Corps (and hopes to create an animated version of himself). His status as a soldier doesn’t excuse him from family affairs, though.
He’s got his flaws, but he still doesn’t want to lose sight of what really matters — and in this regard, he’s determined never to lose his humanity as he continues on his journey. If you’re anything like Armin, who has some difficulty handling criticism due to low self-esteem, you’ll be inspired by Armin’s journey as he grapples with the same struggles in his life.
20/35. Naomi Misora (Death Note)
Naomi Misora is a detective who works for the FBI in the Death Note series. She has a unique power: she can read people like a book. Although she’s just a small part of the story, she comes in handy later on when L needs someone to fill his shoes. She’s not only able to read people well, but she also understands their motives and actions with such accuracy that she sees right through them – just like an open book!
Misora’s feelings can sometimes get in the way of her investigations. They’re not the only thing that she cares deeply about, though. What she really cares about most is justice and helping people. She wants to bring criminals to light and make a change in the world. That’s why Light Yagami knows he can use her strong emotions as a weakness against her.
21/35. Kawora Nagisa (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
Kawora is a perfect example of how INFJs get along with everyone — they’re like that the whole time! The angelic Kawora doesn’t seem to be interested in any one person or opinion. He perceives the good in humanity, and now we all can too. Let’s take a look at some reasons why Kawora is so perfectly-cast as an INFJ.
He always seems to know just what to say. He’s a formidable listener, and he excels at building emotional bonds with others. He’s fascinated by the human condition, and likes to dig deep into people’s psyches to learn more about their feelings. Most of the time this translates into information gathering — useful tip!
22/35. Itachi Uchiha (Naruto Shippuden)
If you’re really into the Naruto Shippuden anime, you might be interested to learn about Itachi Uchiha. In early episodes he hardly ever uses Extraverted Feeling (Fe), but as the series progresses, it becomes clear that Fe was one of his most used functions when he was younger.
Though he is an INFJ, his Fe still reveals itself in this need to be useful to others and uplift the greater good over his own good. As an INFJ, he spends a lot of time thinking about the meaning of life and death, as well as various patterns and potential outcomes. He constantly thinks of where events will lead him, and likes to latch onto symbolism as a means of expressing himself.
23/35. Akane Tsunemori
Akane Tsunemori is an INFJ anime character from the show Psycho-Pass. She has many of the typical INFJ personality traits, which include being idealistic, philosophical, and compassionate. If you’re looking for some great INFJ shows to watch online, here are just a few: Attack on Titan (Sasha Blouse), Fairy Tail (Erza Scarlet), Sword Art Online (Asuna Yuuki), and Kill la Kill (
Osono is a very introverted person: she doesn’t speak much and seems constantly busy with her work as a candy store owner. She also cares about the people in her town, and particularly about Kiki, who becomes something of a daughter to her. With these traits in mind, it would not be far fetched to say that Osono fits in with the INFJ personality type.
25/35. Johan Liebert
Johan Leibert shows so many INFJ traits. He’s well-mannered, compassionate, and profound — but he can also be somewhat aloof. Many people who know someone with an INFJ personality will relate to what his acquaintances call him: “not of this world”. So, if you or someone you know is struggling with relationships or day-to-day life, you might want to consider the possibility that they have an INFJ personality.
26/35. Ayane Yano
Ayane Yano was made an INFJ character for many reasons, with her strong introverted intuition and her extroverted feeling being the most important. It’s easy for an INFJ to show their emotions, but it’s also fairly easy for them to understand the emotions of others. Many times, they are highly perceptive of the emotions of others, and they are able to translate these emotions into action through their extroverted feeling.
27/35. Emiya Kiritsugu
Emiya Kiritsugu, the man behind the magic, is an anime character from the Fate/Stay Night Visual Novel and the prequel to the same by the name of Fate/Zero. He’s a great candidate for being labeled an INFJ anime character primarily due to his brooding and conflicted nature. Watch him in action, protecting the weak and upholding his ideals — just like an INFJ would!
28/35. Yuzuru Otonashi
Yuzuru Otonashi is an anime character from Angel Beats. He’s a bit shy and reclusive, but he’s a hard worker who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals — and if that means studying more or giving up playing video games a couple of hours a day, he’ll do it. If you want to learn more about INFJs and how they work, come join our group!
29/35. Sawako Kuronuma
Sawako Kuronuma is not someone who you’d expect to lead a group of friends, but she does so anyway. It’s because she is so selfless and compassionate that she takes on the role of class president, and it also helps that this selflessness isn’t just a front: her actions are truly dictated by kindness.
30/35. Misaki Nakahara
Misaki Nakahara is so misunderstood. Misaki does appear on the show Welcome to the NHK , and while she may not come across as a typical INFJ anime character, Misaki is still in possession of traits like kindness and altruism — even as she demonstrates self-loathing at times. She also has questionable levels of self-worth (the number of bongs she’s smoked is outrageous!
31/35. Hatsuharu Sohma
Hatsuharu is a 17-year-old teenager who suffers from a curse that causes him to turn into a cow when hugged by anyone of the female gender. His outgoing personality, however, hides an inner world of insecurity and anxiety about his future. While Hatsuharu seems confident and charming on the outside, he is actually quite the opposite – inside, he’s a scared little INFJ who doesn’t know his true potential.
The character of Ashitaka in the Studio Ghibli movie Princess Mononoke plays a big role in the INFJ imagination, and as such is used often to describe INFJs in anime. He shows a lot of determination, and doesn’t let anything stop him from achieving what he wants — which is why it makes sense that he’s an INFJ. INFJs seek peace, but they are also curious about the world around them.
33/35. Saki Hanajima
Saki Hanajima is an INFJ anime character on the show Fruits Basket. Saki is a loner who was quite isolated from everyone and everything around her at the beginning due to a traumatic past, which shows that not everyone that has introverted traits may have been born with them and that Anime Characters Personality Types can change dramatically over the course of a lifetime.
Haku is an INFJ anime character who appears on the popular Naruto show. He is a spirited individual who can turn into a dragon, despite his quiet and unassuming appearance. Haku also possesses great spiritual knowledge, which will help him help others as much as he can. INFJs are often misunderstood to be reserved and hidden behind their seemingly gentle exteriors.
35/35. Robin Sena
Robin Sena is a Character Designer and Illustrator, who is best known for her work in Wolf Children, The Secret World of Arrietty, and the first season of Is the Order a Rabbit (GochiUsa)? She may be thought of as an INTP Anime Character Designer due to her calm and quiet nature. However, she seems rather extroverted, just like other INTPs. Her clear and concise character designs strike a chord with fans.
