ENTJ, ENTP, INTJ, and INFP are some of the most common words one can see on the internet nowadays, but not many people know what these stand for or what they are. These words are categorizations of an individual’s personality type based on the Myer and Briggs personality test. These personality types define a person based on a set number of questions the person has to answer.

This applies not only to humans but to fictional characters as well. The test can be used to determine their personality type and used to understand a person’s nature even more. The INFP personality type is of an idealist who is a bit introverted but very generous. This article will list the top 50 anime characters that fall into the INFP personality type category.35 INFP Anime Characters

Best INFP Anime Characters

The characters listed here want to have an ideal world and are cheerful and kind. They are a bit of an introvert but are very fun and generous once you get to know them and get close to them.  So here are the top 50 anime characters that are INFP in nature:-

35. Dawn (Pokemon Diamond and Pearl)

She is our very first entry in the list of top INFP characters in the Anime world. Dawn from Pokemon Diamond and Pearl was introduced in the anime as a fun yet calm character who was always humble and kind to others. In my opinion, Dawn is the best female character introduced in the anime series, even more than Selena.

Dawn has always been kind and humble towards Ash which is not a trait we have seen in other female characters who have set on a journey with our beloved Pokémon trainer. She has always been seen to promote optimism and positivity in the series, and she also has been seen using good intuition in her battles when it comes to tactics and battle strategies.

34. Izuku Midoriya (My Hero Academia)

Izuku Midoriya is one of those characters that define the INFP personality type just by being themselves. The main protagonist of the popular anime My Hero Academia is somewhat of an introvert which can be seen in his personality throughout the run of the multiple anime seasons. But what makes Deku (Izuku Midoriya) a true INFP is his caring and compassionate nature, along with his introversion.

Deku’s strong sense of justice and his outlook toward the world is what proves him to be an idealist who is true to the core. He is known to be very emotional as well and can be considered a bit too emotional in some scenarios, but he is strong and very hard-working, which makes him more lovable and admirable.

33. Izumi Miyamura (Horimiya)

For many people, Miyamura is the definition of an ideal partner. This character has a huge fan following among the ladies, and the guys admire him as well. The key characteristics that make Izumi attractive are his humble nature and kindness. People who have watched Horimiya would know how the earth of a person Izumi is. Hew is humble and kind and has a habit of admiring people even though he doesn’t need to.

Miyamura (Credits: Cloverworks)

He is always calm and composed and has never seen to get aggressive throughout the entire show. Even though his past is not very good, he tries to spread positivity and happiness and enjoys the present to the fullest. Izumi Miyamura is one INFP character that one should meet and befriend in real life, as he would be a great person to have in one’s life.

32. Gohan (Dragon Ball Z)

Gohan from Dragon Ball Z is well-known all around the world for his monstrous glow-up in Cell Saga and his stepping up to become the protector of the earth after the death of his father, Goku. Though most of the fan base loves his father, Goku, more, there is no denying that a huge amount of fans also love Gohan the same, if not even more. 

Gohan (Credits: Toei Animation)

He is not currently shown the same amount of love in the anime as he once did, but it is no doubt that Gohan’s caring and compassionate nature which makes him resist fighting. His courageous nature, which is seen in situations where he does not hesitate to fight for his loved ones even though his beliefs are non-violent, proves him to be an idealist and a true INFP.

31. Tony Tony Chopper (One Piece)

The adorable talking reindeer Tony Tony Chopper is a character no one can hate. He is arguably the cutest character in One Piece, even though the show has a plethora of cute characters. This man or reindeer, whatever you want to call him, is an INFP, and this can be seen in his caring and compassionate nature directed towards his crew. Chopper tries his very best to be useful to his crew and help them in need, as he is the crew’s doctor and has the responsibility of taking care of his crew members.

But this care is genuine and not forced. Chopper cherishes every crew member of his and is very concerned when it comes to their safety and health. He can also go over the limits to protect his friends or to help them in moments of crisis.

30. Corazon (One Piece)

Rosinante Donquixote or more popularly known as Corazon, is the brother of one of the famous antagonists in One-Piece, Donquixote Doflamingo. He is portrayed as a cruel child-hating character at first which would rule him out of the list of INFP characters. But later on, when it is revealed that the way he acted was all an act, and Corazon is a caring and compassionate human being who loves his close ones and would go beyond the normal for them, making him an absolute fit for the INFP character list.

29. Siberia Palm (HunterXHunter)

Siberia Palm was a character that was remarkable during the chimera ant arc in the anime HunterXHunter, she is mostly portrayed as a cruel woman in the anime, but that is true only on the outside. It is later seen in the anime that she is a very calm, composed, and intelligent woman on the inside who works the way she does to create an idealistic situation for herself. The characteristics she possesses make her an INFP character one should be certain of.

28. Crona (Soul Eater)

One of the most popular characters from the soul eater anime, Crona asserts himself as an INFP character very clearly in the anime. He has every quality that an INFP character must possess. First and foremost, he is an introvert, his past traumatic experiences have made him humble, and his idealistic view of the world makes him an INFP character from the core.

27. Komugi (HunterXHunter)

Childish, clumsy, and kind, these three words pretty much sum up Komugi from HuntertXHunter. Her childish nature and clumsy behavior make her seem cute and are the reason for her kind and sympathetic behavior toward everyone. The true features of her INFP personality cannot be seen in her yet to the full extent. But I am sure if fans dug into the story a bit more, they could surely find proof that would make us all more certain of her personality type.

Komugi (Credits: Nippon TV)

26. Alluka Zoldyck (HunterXHunter)

The adorable sister of Killua Zoldyck is a polite and humble girl, but this is not shown from the very start. She was shown to be quite a dark character, but as the show progressed, we discovered that Killua’s baby sister is a really cute girl in reality who is polite and humble as well. She received quite good treatment in the show and by the fans as well, and it was well deserved. Her characteristics and her personality surely do make her an INFP.

25. Neji Hyuga (Naruto)

Neji ticks all the boxes when it comes to an INFP personality type. He doesn’t like big groups and prefers to stay in small ones. He values his close ones very much and would go to great lengths for them, and this can be seen later in the series. Lastly and most importantly, he doesn’t speak much but cares about maintaining order and peace around him. All these qualities surely make him a hell of an INFP who cannot be ignored for sure.

24. Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama (Mob Psycho 100)

Mob has always been a beloved character in the world of anime, and that is for a reason. Mob comes out as quite an introverted character, he doesn’t try to get along with people and likes to be on his own mostly, but when he gets along with someone, he is caring and empathetic towards them.

Shigeo Mob (Credits: Studio BONES)

He is also quite idealistic, as he doesn’t want to rely on his superpowers to achieve the things he wants in life, but he wants to work hard for them and grow as a human. This nature of Mob surely makes him an INFP that holds a special place in our hearts.

23. Koji Koda (My Hero Academia)

Koji is a character that many people would forget after the show is over, and this is believable because he is a side character and doesn’t get much screen time as compared to the main characters. He is here on this list because of his sweet personality. Koji is super introverted and shy and doesn’t speak much in the show. But the care and compassion that he shows towards his classmates is what makes him a part of this list.

He is also seen protecting his classmates when they need them and helping them out in combat training which further shows how much he is dedicated to the people he is close to.

22. Junpei (Jujutsu Kaisen)

The story of Junpei in Jujutsu Kaisen is tragic and makes the viewer surely feel sympathetic toward him, and he is an INFP character from head to toe. He is a character who can be considered a lost cause because of the traumatic events he suffered. Despite being a side character, Junpei had a big role to play in the overall story of Jujutsu Kaisen.

Junpei (Credits: MAPPA)

One iconic quote of Junpei from the anime allows us to dive deeper into the psychology of the character and allows us to understand him better. In his quote, Junpei said that If there existed a button that would kill everyone he hated, he wouldn’t press it. Nonetheless, if there was a button that would kill everyone who hated him, he would press it without hesitation.

This lets us understand Junpei a lot more and confirms that his societal views were not very positive. But deep down, he was a caring and humble person. As we saw in his brief friendship with Yuji, the traumatic events that he experienced changed him forever, and it was impossible to pull him back.

21. Yamaguchi (Haikyuu!!)

Yamaguchi is another side character who didn’t get much attention compared to the main cast but left an impact on the show and the audience. Yamaguchi is seen as an INFP character because of his shy personality and his determination to be there for his close ones.

Yamaguchi (Credits: Production I.G.)

His bond with Tsukishima is an example of that, and his idealistic nature is seen through his competitive nature, which is seen in his drive to fight for a place in the team regulars and to become useful for his team. He played a key role in the victories achieved by his team and how he performed when his team needed him the most.

A hot topic among girls when the anime was released, Chifuyu is one hell of an INFP character. His unwavering loyalty toward Baji comes from his deep respect for his bonds and friendship.

When you add all of these attributes along with his down-to-earth, humble nature, you get an INFP character who is awesome as well and loved by all.

19. Shikamaru Nara (Naruto)

This character needs no introduction. The strategist of the Naruto series has an energy of his own that makes him stand out compared to the rest of the cast. He views everything with the eyes of the task being a drag or a hassle. He would not talk to people, socialize, or fight, not because he could not do that but because it was a drag in his eyes. This unique personality of his makes him the unique INFP out there.

Rem from death note didn’t belong to the human realm, and he was a resident of a world that people may call the afterlife. But that doesn’t mean he can’t be an INFP, and Rem showed traits that classified him as an INFP in our eyes.

Just like Armin from Attack on Titan and Nagato from Naruto, Akane is a character who is very true to her ideals and sticks by them no matter what. It is very hard to have an idealistic viewpoint in the world of Psycho-Pass, but Akane does so. She holds on to her ideals even in the worst of times.
