More than a dozen people have contacted me over the past two months asking that I write an article about INFP characters in anime. It appears to me that INFPs have a soft spot in their hearts for anime characters, and it’s easy to see why. Characters in anime frequently stand up for what they think is right, act with integrity, and try to make the world a better place.
There’s a lot of visual value to anime as well, with the use of striking colours and designs to depict the emotional lives of the characters. I’ve chosen eleven INFP-friendly characters to discuss today. A few of these people represent the best of what INFPs can be, while others exhibit some of the worst.
1. Alphonse Eric From Fullmetal Alchemist
Al is a caring and optimistic man who helps anybody he can. His brother Edward often uses him as a voice of reason thanks to his sibling’s innate kindness and moral compass. Many INFPs will find themselves relating to Al’s honesty and protectiveness. Al hates to see anyone in pain, therefore he’s careful never to abandon them. It’s true that he’ll carry around stray kittens in his armor. Could it get much more INFP than that?
2. Gaara From Naruto
As a counterpoint to Alphonse’s amiable INFP character, let’s look at a more “mixed bag” INFP. Childhood trauma has shaped Gaara in ways both good and bad. Gaara’s childhood warmth and openness gave way to an acceptance of his darker nature as he matured. After this, he stopped caring about other people and felt compelled to kill them to validate his own existence. Eventually, Gaara reverted to the path of virtue and strove to create a world of harmony and togetherness among the Shinobi. While INFPs probably won’t relate Gaara’s actions when he’s at his worst, they can relate to his idealism, compassion, and curiosity at his best. Because of the hardships he overcame as a child, they may sympathize with him as a villain. Further insight into Gaara’s personality can be found on the Practical Typing site.
3. Kaneki Ken From Tokyo Ghoul
Like any good INFP, Ken Kaneki struggles against the obstacles to maintaining his integrity. Losing his identity and violating his moral code is his greatest worry. It’s true that people of all personality types may empathize with this on some level, but INFPs experience it most deeply. Genuineness and individuality are two things that INFPs value above all else. They are adamant that they will not let anything or anyone alter who they truly are at their core. Throughout most of Tokyo Ghoul, Ken Kaneki is troubled by this conflict within himself. Kind, retiring, and selflessly protective, he will put himself in mortal danger to save those he cares about. His quiet, thoughtful demeanor exemplifies the mysterious, ethical character of the INFP.
4. Akane Tsunemori from Psycho-Pass
Akane is motivated by her own sense of fairness and morals, which makes her insightful and idealistic. She, like many INFPs, is reserved yet can explode in wrath at the drop of a dime if someone does something she finds morally abhorrent. Akane spends her time as a detective contemplating her motivations and the meaning of her existence. Her thoughtful, introspective demeanor is something that INFPs can identify with on a deep level.’
5. Shinji Ikari From Evangelion
Shinji Ikari, who is timid, altruistic, and sad, has the enormous responsibility of safeguarding humanity. Like many INFPs, he retreats inside himself and worries about getting too close to people when faced with overwhelming responsibilities and stress. Like many INFPs, he uses music as a way to process his feelings, and he considers its communal qualities to be a source of strength. Despite everything he’s been through, he keeps looking for meaning and asking himself what it is he’s supposed to be doing with his life.
6. Tamaki Amajiki from My Hero Academia
INFPs are rarely shown in the media as heroic figures. It is typically the Sensing-Perceiving kinds who are tasked with this responsibility. Tamaki Amajiki, on the other hand, is a model INFP superhero. He doesn’t seek opportunities to show off or boast about his skills. Instead, he follows his heart and uses his skills humbly, without seeking attention. INFPs will identify with his honesty, kindness, and gentle, idealistic demeanor.
7. Shizuku Tsukishima from Whisper of The Heart
Shizuku Tsukishima, a hopeless romantic and avid reader, is propelled by her love of literature and her vivid imagination. As with many INFP anime characters, she is an avid reader who can often be seen taking out entire shelves of fantasy novels from the library. Many INFPs will identify with her free-flowing thoughts and deep interior life. While some readers may not identify with her, others will be able to relate to her because of their own experiences as teenagers.
8. Mitsuha Miyamizu From Your Name
Since many INFPs share Mitsuha’s desire to see the world beyond her small village, they will likely identify with her story. Mitsuha is the type of person who would rather go on an adventure than continue living her current life, as she has a strong desire to broaden her horizons and experience new things. When she learns she can transfer her spirit to another body, her wish is granted. Most INFPs will see themselves in Miyamizu’s dreamy, nurturing, and sympathetic personality.
9. Euphemia Li Britannia from Code Geass: Lelouch of The Rebellion
Euphemia embodies the INFP goal of being enthusiastic and visionary. Unlike the rest of her family, she cares about the “Elevens” and believes in equality for all people. To solve the world’s issues, she relies on her innate intelligence and ability to think creatively outside the box. She is the kindest character in anime because of her unwavering morality and unwavering character.
10. Levy McGarden from Fairy Tail
Levy McGarden is an upbeat and generous person who makes choices based on her core beliefs. She, like many other INFPs, has a deep appreciation for literature and tends to bond with others on their mutual appreciation of good storytelling. Levy is unlike any other character in the series because of her ability to find good in anyone, including the villain who tortured her previously in the story. She doesn’t make snap judgments based on outward appearances or conduct, but rather considers the whole person.
