We are intrigued. We are ecstatic. We love INFP, and we love anime. Let us, therefore, explore the INFP anime characters in some of our favorite anime shows on this list. Let’s go!
As intuitive-introvert, INFP personality types are creative and fun to be with. He or she is the type of person who doesn’t mind much about what you’re doing, but they are also inclined to remember a lot about a person in depth. They do not vocalize or express their emotions to everyone because they’re a bit shy and withdrawn. Despite being a quiet-type, they are people-persons who prefer to be in a group of meaningful friends rather than to feel ‘lonely’ all the time. They are easygoing and sometimes silly, but they have strong emotions on the inside. They can be thrilled in their heart when they perceive that all is good but distraught when things aren’t going fine in their view. Nevertheless, it won’t take that much to uplift their spirits back up, and they will be happier again through the fantastic support of their friends and loved ones. They will continue to fight ardently for what they believe in. The INFP function stack is Fi-Ne-Si-Te.
Here are the INFP anime characters and possible anime recommendations for you (hopefully) as follows:
KEN KANEKI FROM TOKYO GHOUL
Written as one of the most tragic and badass protagonists of modern-day fiction, Kanaki is an INFP through and through. When we first see him in the story, he is introduced to us as a shy boy who is a book worm. He is kind and gentle and has a deep sense of learning. After turning into a half-ghoul, Kaneki becomes a bridge between the human and ghoul world as he could see and feel both. He is shown as a very kind and compassionate character towards both his human and ghoul companions. He falls deeply in love with a ghoul, Touka Kirishima, whom he later marries and starts a family with her.
As the story progresses, we see Kaneki becoming more brutal when he finally accepts his “ghoul” side. He becomes more composed and fearless for the sake of the people he loves and wants to protect. But one of the biggest fears Kaneki has is losing his own individuality. After getting a split personality, Kaneki tries his best not to go against his moral codes while keeping all the people he loves safe. Many people can feel this characteristic; however, INTPs strongly feel it. Caring, loving, shy, and selfless- Kaneki is an INTP who can throw his own life away for the people he cares about. His idealistic view of a world where humans and ghouls can live together, which can create later shows his optimism. His morally conscious nature, along with his introspective and selfless attitude, embodies an INFP.
Dr. Kenzo Tenma, “Monster”
We are starting dark but beautiful. Monster is another different kind of anime. It is grim and serious because of its distinctive art style, compelling storyline effect, and brilliant theme. The work is by Naoki Urasawa. The entire ‘feel’ of the show is faithful to the events that occur in the story.
Dr. Tenma is the protagonist. He’s a successful and excelling neurosurgeon at the beginning of the story, if not at the top-INFP. He has highly skillful hands, the right mindset while operating, and shows an all-around good nature towards his patients. On observation, Kenzo Tenma is a gentle and highly talented young man whose life is appropriately escalating.
Things went very smoothly at first. Tenma is favored by the director’s daughter and praised by the director himself. Tenma had successfully operated on a famous opera singer, which led to the rise of the hospital’s reputation being enunciated in the news. Tenma doesn’t mind to the point of a self-bothering degree that he wasn’t mentioned in the news as he tends to ‘go blissfully with the flow of his life.’ However, he does seem to recognize laughably that the news was all about the hospital’s director instead of him, Tenma, and his miraculous work on the opera singer that gave the hospital its reputation.
Tenma was doing fine and alright until he was confronted aggressively by a woman who blamed him for not operating on her construction-worker husband, who came first then the famous opera singer. Dr. Tenma was shocked and dazed as the woman wept and pounded her fist on Tenma’s chest. He recalls that he was supposed to start surgery on a Turkish man before he was given an ‘order’ by the director to operate on the opera singer instead.
From this period on, Tenma acknowledges and reflects on the hospital’s shade in its motive to gain worldwide recognition. Tenma has decided he was in discord with the idea. His empathetic self believes in the bright future for all that all lives are created equal. In a new case, he decides to save a child who was shot very severely in the head instead of following another one of the director’s orders to perform surgery on the Mayor this time, guaranteeing a lavish cost for the hospital. Tenma disobeyed the director’s orders and followed what’s right in his mind. Tenma was able to see how the director and all his accomplices are a bunch of corrupted people. He curses how much selfishness and evil lies within them and that “they’d be better off dead.”
Tenma is now intensely focused on his code of ethics as a doctor: “To save as many lives as possible.” He saved the child named Johan and even said that he would do it again, despite being truly upset by his consequential demotion as the top surgeon and Eva’s fiance. He saved the child, knowing he did what was right for him, only to find out later that he had resuscitated a manipulative psychopath back to life.
ALPHONSE ELRIC FROM FULL METAL ALCHEMIST
Considered one of the most popular INFP anime characters, Alphonse Elric is the deuteragonist of one the best anime of all time, Fullmetal Alchemist. Alphonse is shown as a kind and level-headed character even after looking like a bulky character in his heavy metal armor. Unlike his abrasive elder brother, Edward, Alphonse is more soft-spoken and innocent. He is kind, gentle, and notably patient to his own fault as he is shown as compassionate towards even his enemies. He is a selfless character who is ready to put himself in danger for the sake of the people he cares about.
Apart from his deep knowledge about the world and the philosopher’s stone, Alphonse, with his lost physical body, also suffers from his insecurities. Throughout the series, we see him struggling with his artificial body as he continues to remain scared of losing himself someday. Even though he wishes to restore his original body, he highly condemns the philosopher’s stone formation practically forms it. His strong sense of judgment while remaining optimistic makes him an endearing INFP character. We even see his selfless side in the series’s finale, where he is willing to sacrifice his soul for Edward’s sake.
Caring and idealistic, Al tries his best to help all of those who cross his path. He is a lovable brother and an endearing companion to his comrades, especially to the military officers Roy Mustang and Riza Hawkeye, who treat him as a normal child. Because of his maturity, he always acts as a verbal conscience to his brother. His kindness and protective nature are very relatable to many INFPs. Not only does he have a lovable personality with a strong sense of morality, he even hides cats inside his armor. Now, you cannot get INTP than this anymore.
Shigeo Kageyma a.k.a “Mob,” “Mob Psycho 100”
This character has a more comical-looking visage despite not having that much expression on his face when he isn’t smiling or blushing. The show is like the INFP personality type, colorful and usually silly, but half heavy emotions. Mob Psycho 100 is an anime show with a crafted story about “Espers” living in typical Japanese society. The show was created by the manga artist named One, who also produced One-punch man. Mob is the protagonist. Despite having difficulties in expressing himself, he happens to be a mighty “Esper.” He usually gets socially entangled because he’s still in middle school and still trying to know himself more and use his powers. It is the reason why I often get misunderstood by others. He shows true care towards his younger brother Ritsu. No matter what Ritsu does or says to hurt him, he doesn’t get infuriated as he will try to understand him, however the circumstance.
He is in love with Tsubomi, a girl with huge, diamond-filled eyes. Mob reimagines her with diamonds in the background. Whenever Mob thinks about her, he blushes. He goes out of the world to daydream for a brief moment; then he goes back to a neutral face. He finds that Tsubomi is not impressed by his psychic prowess; therefore, he does all he can to get ‘muscles’ to capture her attention. He has a part-time job at the end of every school day, and that is to exorcise spirits under his master named Reigen, who is a known comedic hoax to those who’ve watched the show.
In the confrontation with another Esper, Teruki, (and Teruki eventually got bald), Mob shows a heroic nature of not wanting to fight or hurt anyone. He doesn’t want to use his psychic powers to hurt anyone or be defined solely because he knows that there is more to a person than their special abilities. The truth of the matter is, even others may think that Shigeo Kageyama is an odd introvert because he shows that he wants to be with people, but that’s not the case. Shigeo is a clear INFP who usually wants to mingle with people and connect deeply with those around him. He wants to be around people who will help him freely express himself as he does tend to be passive about how he feels. He wants to have a pleasant time with his friends while continuing to believe in his “master” Reigen at the same time.
Another quality about Shigeo, or Mob, is that he doesn’t suspect or think bad about Reigen only ‘using’ him. Mob isn’t grudging because he only gets minimal meat in his ramen whenever he and Reigen go out and eat.
Mob looks up to Reigen in a way as he believes that he’s got all the answers. Mob believes that Reigen can take care of his psychic powers that he, Mob, himself, doesn’t fully understand what it all means for him yet. The mob is careful and does not want to rash by figuring it all out by himself as he knows he can’t. He likes Reigen and looks up to him because asides from seeing him as his master, he also views him as someone he could talk to regarding the wise use of his extraordinary powers.
ARMIN ARLERT ON TITAN
Written and Illustrated by Hajime Isayama, Assault on Titan is on the verge of becoming a modern masterpiece, and one of the biggest reasons for its success is the characters. This series contains a large cast of fleshed-out and interesting characters, but one of the most significant figures of this series is one of the childhood friends of the protagonist, Armin Arlert. Even though introduced as a shy and weak boy who was constantly bullied, Armin is considered the “brains” of the series. His immense curiosity regarding the outside world motivates Eren, the protagonist, to look for freedom. He is a kind and selfless guy who keeps both of his friends checking when their emotions get the best of them. In this morally grey world, his faith in his friends while being understanding towards his “enemies” (such as in the case of Annie where he tries to talk to her) tells us that he is a tolerant person who is willing to learn and understand other people rather than labeling them as “enemies.”
Armin may not be considered as one of the strongest characters in the series. However, his sharp thinking always helps the scouts to tackle any critical situation. Meek yet level-headed, his analytical approach in dire situations has helped his comrades time and time again. With his knowledge, judgment, level-headedness, and ability to plan further, he can come up with plans that are usually out of the box. He is also good at improvising as well. He may get hopeless at times but tries his best to look at the cruel world positively. He still wants to see a world with true “freedom,” but current circumstances are not helping him.
Even after being such a wise person with great analytical skills, Armin also has a huge inferiority complex and is emotionally sensitive. He may have a lot of trust in his comrades, but he considers himself a useless person when it comes to himself. He gets anxious when put in the spotlight and feels like he is unworthy of the titles he has achieved. Time and time again, he has been shown as a person who ready to throw his life away because he is not “good enough.”
Despite all that, he still believes that morality is relative, and it is no good and evil. Armin’s personality traits- being knowledgeable, level-headed, curious, kind, and selfless while being understanding towards other people, shows how much of a relatable INFP he is.
Hagumi Hanamoto, “Honey and Clover”
Honey and Clover show that you might not want to miss if you enjoy the slice of life genre. It is another nostalgic and heartfelt anime with its remedial music and dreamily-filtered art style. The show is about art students in college and the drama in their lives. Hagu was first introduced as an eighteen-year-old first-year art student in college. She is small in height and has long, yellow hair that flows and huge eyes. She usually styles her hair with decorative pins. Overall, her mien is mellow and reserved. She is a silent type and is very talented in art, which always surprises Yuta and the others. She is guided by professor Shuji, the cousin of one of her parents, and is therefore rather protective of her. The rest of the group, especially Yuta and Shinobu, had fallen in love with her timid.
Hagumi knows what she likes and what she finds unpleasant, but she doesn’t vocalize them; instead, she uses the auxiliary function Ne or extroverted intuition signals to get what she wants. For example, Yuta suggested that maybe he can create a furniture set for her dolls, to which she replied enthusiastically, “You will?” and then she told him she wanted a “rococo style” of furniture with a big, happy smile on her face that Yuta finds he painfully cannot refuse. The place where she sleeps is small, and she doesn’t seem to mind much about it; she showed her dolls proudly to Yuta.
Hagumi is sensitive and gets stressed easily. She is prone to be overwhelmed by a lot of external factors, and even if she doesn’t express or say much about her moping, she is imminent of being effusive all the time and will poignantly express them. She likes cute foods or pretty things and fun parties, especially to get together with her friends or those that she has grown very familiar with. Whenever she finds that someone like Yuta is upset, she tries to cheer him emotionally up indirectly. The way she expresses emotion is highly apparent throughout the show. She shows a full spectrum of feelings such as sadness, curiosity, anxiety, being upset, pain, laughter, shyness, being determined, and being happy by showing them through a lot of blushing and tears, which is what the show will likely also bring you about.
TAMAKI AMAJIKI FROM BOKU NO HERO ACADEMIA
You don’t see an INFP becoming a hero in films, but in BNHA, there is one. With the hero name “Suneater,” Tamaki is one of My Hero Academia’s heroes whom many INTPs will find relatable. Being shy and introverted since childhood, Tamaki is not much of a show-off and has quite many insecurities. He is still shown as an idealist who believes in his morals and is a compassionate hero. He may not like to stand under like spotlight like other heroes, but that does not mean he does not do his responsibilities properly. He is a hero by heart and tries his best to save people during dire situations.
Even after having such an amazing Quirk, Tamaki lacks confidence in his skills. He is often overwhelmed by the emotions of becoming “perfect,” which leads to depression in his case. However, he is completely capable of using his skills in the best way possible. He is a hard worker who climbed his way to the Big3 in the academy, and even after his achievements; he continued to remain modest while following his moral values. He is the perfect example of an INFP hero in whom many people can see themselves.
Legoshi, “Beast Stars”
In the world of Beast Stars, a Netflix show, the characters are animals that live, dress, and talk like humans. The concept that’s apparent in the story is that they still have their animalistic instincts intact. The INFP character here is Legoshi, who is a wolf. It is generally and often judged that wolves are another one of the story’s predators’ blood-thirsty and violent classifications. But Legoshi’s personality is far from being a predator. Legoshi is easy going and not comfortable with intruding. He is far from the domineering, masochistic, and bloodthirsty predators. He is vegetarian and has often shown to be slightly depressed and goes along with what others want. He is not stupid and can notice what is right from wrong, but can also get easily entangled by what others drag him into, which stresses him.
Legoshi gets tormented when the news of wrongdoing around school occur, and it was a case involving a predator-harm. Due to this, vigilance against predators increased, and people looked at Legoshi in a bad and fearful way. It could not be more damning to Legoshi when he finds himself attracted to a dwarf rabbit named Haru. Her scent drew him that his wolf primal instincts drove him to plunge his teeth right on her arm, but he managed to control himself and back away with supreme effort.
It turns out that Haru is a promiscuous rabbit who isn’t terrified of predators. Legoshi soon realizes that he has feelings for Haru and doesn’t even consider Juno, a popular and attractive female wolf who is their school mate. Throughout the show, Legoshi battles with himself and suffers from slight rumination and confusion about who he is instead of what he is. What might separate his primal instincts from his romantic feelings towards the small white rabbit, Haru?
AKANE TSUNEMORI FROM PSYCHO-PASS
Set up in a dystopian Japan, Akane Tsunemori is introduced to us as a shy and naive recruit who grows to become a brave inspector later in the series. Her character is of an idealist who slowly comes to understand more about the corrupted Sibyl System.
As the story progresses, we see her growing more and more composed and level-headed, even in stressful situations, continues to keep her Psycho-Pass (her mental health) under 100. She is also a very humble, compassionate, and kind person who deeply cares for her companions. However, sometimes her emotions can take the best of her as she can be headstrong and get angry and upset with people for doing things with which she philosophically disagrees.
Her brave yet compassionate nature with a strong introspective and philosophy is definitely something an INFP can relate to.
Shinji Ikari, “Neon Genesis Evangelion”
This is one of the more classic and dramatic anime in the psychological genre. The main characters have their say of deep psychological drama raging on. It is entertaining to delve in and observe what their thoughts and emotions have to say throughout the entirety of the show.
Shinji Ikari is a known INFP across the internet realm. He is described as tidy, laid-back, and passive, even labeled as a ‘cry-baby’ by Asuka fans. He likes to listen to music at night, reflecting on the day. He still regards Asuka as his friend despite the comical things that she does or says to him. The plot is set in the future. Shinji is a teenage boy who unexpectedly got recruited by his father behind “NERV” to pilot a robot-like machine called “Evangelion.” These Evangelions are what can fight entities called “Angels.” It is a quest to save humanity.
Shinji finds the responsibility an overwhelming burden, a big no-no for him. At first, he suffers from low self-esteem, believing to himself that he can’t do it. He doesn’t care much about the recognition that he’d get as he knows that he’s not ‘the chosen one.’ But what he does care about is being of a substance to himself and especially his father. INFP types know what they feel, and they would go for what is right for them rather than accommodate what other people say or will order for them to do, which is why there are times wherein it’s tough to push Shinji to get inside the Evangelion. After all, he thinks it isn’t right for him to do it because “someone will get hurt in the process.” He’s got a lot of complicated angst that needs to be worked out and carefully monitored, as, throughout the show, he’s been only forced and driven to do the things he doesn’t want to do.
SAWAKO KURONOMA FROM KIMI NI TODOKE
The protagonist of this adorable shoujo/romantic anime, Sawako Kuronoma, is a bundle of joy, often misunderstood for her resemblance to the character “Sadako” from the infamous horror movie, The Ring. Her appearance may be intimidating, but her kind and gentle nature are evident from the start. She even becomes friends with two of her classmates, who adore her for her endearing personality.
Sawako is also very knowledgeable and intelligent because she can later interact more with her class. She understands and does not hold any grudges against people as she has a very optimistic attitude regarding people. She can be very insecure about herself, though, as we can see when she realizes her romantic feelings for the class’s popular guy- Shoto Kazehaya. She thinks that she is not worthy of his feelings as he treats everyone with kindness. However, she can overcome her insecurities with time and finally gets her happy ending.
Seeing her awkward yet open-minded personality, many INTP can relate to her character. She has all the traits of an INFP, and seriously, she is one of most adorable INTP characters to have ever written.
Homura Akemi, “Puella Magi Modoka Magica”
Puella Magi Madoka Magica, at a glance, maybe another magical-girly and lighthearted anime show. Still, it will take on a dark and strange turn that even male audiences will soon find intriguing. Madoka Kaname is the protagonist, different from Homura Akemi, who will later enter the story as a transfer student. The first that happened was that Madoka had a weird, apocalyptic dream. In the dream, a white creature appears and a girl with long black hair. The following school day, a new student arrived, and her name is Homura Akemi. She has beautiful long black hair and a stern demeanor. She is the girl Madoka referred to as seen in her dream.
Homura Akemi is the type of INFP who is more cerebral than the typical creative-inclined INFP. She is quiet and precise but initially still had her major struggles to fit in at first. She used to be timid and maladroitly weak because of her heart condition. It turns out; she was also a victim of Kyubey, the white creature who persuaded her to become a ‘magical girl’ in exchange for one wish. Now, she is trying her very best to stop Madoka and Sayaka from their doomed fates.
Being a magical girl means fighting with literally harmful and dangerous witches. It meant putting their lives at risk. When too much danger turns to darkness, it taints a magical girl’s “Soul Gem,” that if it reaches a point of total darkness, they, the magical girls, will become witches and completely lose their existence.
Homura Akemi is a magical girl who has the special ability to go back in time over and over again, and she has been doing so, repeating the same month countless times, to loyally save her friends fates, especially Madoka, who has been her first friend at the very beginning. She truly cares for her friends to a great extent. She’s repeated the past many times that she doesn’t show as much emotion as she used to. She has evolved through time, wearing the stern, independent look that we now see on her face as it is said that she has gotten used to all the recurring ‘pain.’
EUPHEMIA LI BRITANNIA FROM CODE GEASS: LELOUCH OF THE REBELLION
Born as a princess in Britannia’s Imperial Family, Euphemia is an idealist and visionary by nature who harbors no ill wishes against the “Elevens.” She believes in equality and feels equal compassion towards the oppressed. With her knowledge and intuition, she can even think out of the box to bring the nation together and end the civil war.
However, she fails in her mission when Lelouch accidentally activates his Geass on her, making her destruction hundreds of Elevens. This eventually leads to her death, making her one of the most tragic characters of the series. Many INFPs may find similarities with her integrity and strong moral compass, which once thought of humanity’s betterment.
Kiba, “Wolf’s Rain”
Wolf’s Rain is a personal favorite and has another INFP as the protagonist. Kiba is a part white wolf, part human. He is also rather quiet and an intense type, who showed an obsessive drive to finding the enigmatic place called “paradise.” Kiba’s background story tells how he was only a young cub in his pack back then. One night, when the fire attacked and burned their forests down, Kiba claimed that he had been saved by the “lunar flowers,” which is the link to paradise. The story has random bits being put here and there, but it is still worth watching as it can give us that otherworldly mood or give us the feeling of what it’s like being in an apocalyptic world.
Throughout the entire run of the series, Kiba is focused on getting to paradise. He showed ost as truly distant and cold, with the vicious pride of being a wolf. He didn’t seem to care about being friends with others who are at odds with what he stands for or his purpose. Along the way although, he meets friends and eventually warmed up to the ones he had been freezing at first. He doesn’t mind much of others who decided to go along with him. He gets passionately angry when he sees other wolves being mistreated by humans. Together, they go on a journey as wolves against overcoming powerful barriers to find the “paradise” that they’ve been longing for. Kiba becomes stronger and more courageous, not only because of the “flower maiden,” but because of the people or ‘pack of friends’ he is traveling with. With his sole intention set on the back of his mind, he fights hard to protect those on his side or care for them when badly wounded.
MITSUHA MIYAMIZU FROM KIMI NO NA WA
This beautifully written story by Makoto Shinkai gave us gorgeous visuals, and the soundtracks also gave us an interesting female lead. A wanderer by heart who wants to escape the life of a rural town, many INFPs will see themselves in the fierce yet gentle female lead, Mitsuha Miyazono. Shown as a dreamer, Mitsuha likes to keep her distance from people (as they make fun of her for being a shrine priestess) but also is a kind and compassionate person. Her open-mindedness helps her look beyond a life of boring incidents as she thrives for adventures. She looks forward to the new experiences when she switches bodies with Taki and eventually gets her to wish to see the world she always wanted to.
Her compassionate nature, along with her open-minded thoughts, makes her a perfect INFP. Her dreamy and adventurous nature must be very relatable to many INFPs.
Satou Tutsuhiro, “Welcome to the NHK”
We’ve all heard of the term “Hikkikomori.” The term refers to reclusive adults in Japan who do not have experience or much education and only stay at home living under their parents’ allowance. Our next protagonist, Satou Tutsuhiro, is another INFP. He is a 22-year-old college dropout who believes that it’s all a conspiracy, the reason why he’s developed a lot of qualms about going outside. Welcome to the NHK is another anime show that we shan’t miss if we’re curious about the difficulties of the Hikkikomori lifestyle.
Satou is a paranoid man who believes that the “NHK is watching him.” It is an unusual delusion that he had come up with subconsciously as an excuse to withdraw from society. He is lackadaisical and prone to wasting a lot of time playing video games or watching television. He doesn’t know what to do with his life, or rather, he has too many paranoia fears. Outsiders may foresee his fate as being someone who will only continue to rot in his apartment alone forever. He tries many ways to overcome his lifestyle but would give up immediately, asking himself, “What’s the point?”
He eventually falls for the girl who is eager to help him escape being a Hikkikomori but consistently refuses her and his own feelings because he doesn’t want her to end up with a person like him. This is the selfless side of Satou. He wants to set the girl free and away from him, even if it would mean him going back to darkness and reclusion.
It is happy to say that things in the end, fortunately, went well for Satou when he realized that he’d been blessed all this time not only by his parents and the girl who came right to his door but also because he is capable of realizing that he has to woto to supply for himself.
SHOKO NISHIMIYA FROM KOE NO KATACHI
If you have watched Koe No Katachi, you must be knowing how much resemblance Shoko has to an INFP person. Even though she cannot hear or speak properly since birth, she always looks at the world from a positive side. Even after being bullied by the male lead, Shoya, and others during her childhood, she never held any grudges against them. She is shown as a genuinely kind person who wants to learn more from her people.
However, she also seems to see herself as a burden, and even at one point in time, she decides to commit suicide because she feels she is a “pathetic” human being. Many INFPs must relate to her optimistic yet insecure side, who always desire to learn more. Her heartbreaking yet brave character is what makes her so unique in this movie.
SAITOU SHIMARU FROM GINTAMA
Even after being introduced so late in the series, Saitou Shimaru becomes one of the most endearing characters with an afro in anime. Even after being the captain of the third division of Shinengumi, Saitou finds it difficult to talk to others because of his shy and awkward nature. People often misunderstand him for his quiet nature as intimidating.
However, he is a very skilled swordsman who has earned his position in the Shinsengumi and deeply values his comrades. His encounter with Katsura, who had infiltrated Shinsengumi in disguise, shows that he is actually a very kind person who wanted to become friends with him. Many INTPs will find him very relatable for his kind, self-conscious, and awkward nature.
SHINICHI IZUMI FROM PARASYTE
Shinichi from Parasyte is another example of an INFP character who is shy and awkward but has a strong sense of morality. When he gains his power, he becomes more quiet and secretive about himself. Just like the other characters on the list, he also wishes to protect the people he loves.
At one point in the story, he loses his sense of empathy andand eventually gets it back. He even starts to learn more about the parasites as he forms a mutual bond with Miki. Throughout the series, he continues to seek meaning in things while also protecting other people. That’s why many INFPs must be able to relate to his quiet character along with his strong moral compass and his desire to understand others.
So, here it is—a long list of anime characters who are INFP. Honestly speaking, it is hard to find these rare kindhearted personalities. But seeing INFPs getting portrayed in such a beautiful manner with fleshed out and developed characterization makes the viewers happy. It is, after all, a delight to watch such great shows with these amazingly written characters.
Vincent Law, “Ergo Proxy”
We finish our list with another deep and complex INFP character by the name of Vincent Law. He is from the anime called Ergo Proxy, another masterpiece. Vincent Law moved to Romdeau at the start and worked at the disposal unit for AutoReivs. He tries hard to be excellent and humble at what he does in the hopes of becoming an elite citizen at Romdeau. Due to Monad going wild around the place and pursuing him, Vincent Law had to flee Romdeau out of pressed charges, not fully comprehending why he is involved with Monad’s awakening. He was forced to go on a journey outside Romdeau to remember his origin and who he is. He doesn’t have any memory of his identity. He is a proxy who created Romdeau itself, but due to its imperfection, he decides to abandon it and takes off with Monad, with who he fell in love due to its imperfection. He lies to himself by saying that he is Vincent Law, a human, rather than his true form, Ergo Proxy.
Vincent Law goes under the pacifist category as he would try to avoid any form of violence to settle a dispute. Instead, he would flee from conflict altogether. He is quiet by nature and displays obvious feelings towards Re-L Mayer that he doesn’t seem to want to hold back so easily. Although deep inside, when he does get angry, he will transform into Ergo Proxy and become strongly violent. Despite being known as humble or simple, Vincent showed signs of defending his well-being in a normal delicate manner, such as when Raul Creed’s wife asked the disposal unit to return Pino, an autoreiv, because she is said to infected by the Cogito virus, which is a danger for all Romdeau citizens, Vincent quietly stood to himself and told her honestly that the autoreiv is not affected. Or at the time when he sounded like he was complaining and Re-L Mayer domineeringly questioned him, “Was that a complaint?”
He and Pino get along fine together. In the episode “Busy Doing Nothing,” Vincent Law is displayed as calm and relaxed about how “the wind” isn’t blowing yet to fuel their ship to continue journeying. While Re-L is slightly panicking, Vincent responds to her with a pleasant smile on his face, “Am I supposed to know when the wind will start blowing again?”, and even when Re-L told him seriously that she’d shoot to kill him someday, he treated her word as if she was only joking. Corny as it may sound, he was still in love with her.
That was it for this list; I hope you have carried some bit of insight on what INFP may be like in some of our favorite anime shows or a new anime recommendation. You are immensely applauded for reaching the bottom of the page. Take care!
