INFP stands for introverted, intuitive, and feeling people. The sixteen personality types that the Myers Briggs Theory of Personality (MBTI) has identified have been divided into one of sixteen categories.
In addition, INFPs, which are characters who have strong senses of justice, kindness, and sacrifice, can be found in anime.
They are willing to do whatever it takes to make the world a better place, regardless of their status. In this article, I will be discussing the INFP anime characters.
Everyone has their favourite anime characters, which we can’t help but watch.
They are strong, tough, funny, or just plain silly. We love them all. Below is a list of the greatest INFP anime characters, ranked from 20 to 1.
This list is based on their personality and how well it reflects their MBTI type.

9. Light Yagami From Death Note
Yagami hated criminals and wanted their execution. The light became a peacemaker when he discovered a book that could kill anyone whose name was written on it.
He was soon dubbed “Kira” by many. Some people admired him for his service to justice, while others wished him dead.
The mind games started when he joined the police force assigned to him and the Greatest Detective’ L.
L knew Light was Kira, but he didn’t have proof. They still worked together, both being very smart and having a lot of back and forth.
Yagami, after killing L, called himself a god whose only purpose in this world was to serve justice. The Shinigami who gave him the book was able to kill him, just as he had promised.
8. Rem From Death Note
Misa Amane (AKA Second Kira) was a Shinigami who gave her death note. Rem was a devoted friend who would go to any length for Misa.
She provided Misa with all the information about the book and served Misa like Misa was her master.
She helped Misa meet Light Yagami, and she would always be there to protect her.
This was a disadvantage because Light, an extremely intelligent person, made Rem kill L (Light’s arch-nemesis), and she died. A Shinigami can only kill someone if they murder another human being.
7. Killer From One Piece
The killer is a muscular, tall man who doesn’t speak much and is reserved.
The killer is a loyal pirate and is very loyal to his crew, captain, family, and close friends. He isn’t one to reveal many secrets, but he will keep the best for others.

She also worked hard to achieve the same level of skill as Neji.
We’ve seen Hinata at various points put her life on the line for Naruto, has kept his trust throughout the series, and has sacrificed her own life for him.
5. Ken Kaneki From Tokyo Ghoul

He is described as quiet, enjoys reading books and doesn’t speak to anyone.
His personality didn’t change much when he became a Ghoul.
He remained the same person he was when he was studying Japanese literature.
4. Armin Arlert From Attack On Titan
Armin Arlert is the protagonist of Attack on Titan. After a titan decimated their homes, a young boy became a soldier and won peace for all time.
Armin is intelligent and skilled at devising strategies and plans.
This helped him rise quickly through the ranks of the Survey Corps despite his limited battle skills.
Armin made intelligent decisions that allowed the people within the wall to have peace again and a world without titans.

He will only spend time with people he trusts completely and will give his life for them whenever possible.
3. Nagato/Pain From Naruto Shippuden
Nagato, a villager from the hidden rain village, was involved in wars that claimed many lives.
Nagato was one such child. He lost his parents and was left to survive without food, water, or shelter.
Nagato began living with two other children, and for a while, all three were adopted by Jiraiya (the famous hidden-leaf ninja).
Nagato awakened Rinnegan’s most powerful eyes and worked tirelessly to realise his dream of a world free from hatred and war.
He chose the wrong path and founded an organisation that murdered many people in the name of peace.

Alphonse has a strong sense of justice and does everything he can to help those who are most in need.
Alphonse’s personality made him new friends. They were willing to sacrifice their lives for him.
1. Gaara From Naruto
Gaara’s Kazekage, the Kazekage of the hidden village in the sand, is at the top of this list because he is an INFP.
It was revealed that he was a kind-hearted child earlier in the series. However, the villagers despised Gaara and cursed him with a long-tailed beast.
This made Gaara a cold-hearted killer who wanted to get some acknowledgement from the humans.
Gaara was able to redeem himself and become the leader of his village. He also became a close friend and confidant of Naruto and was willing to give his life for him whenever he needed it.
He is quiet and only speaks to Naruto and his siblings. Although he isn’t shy, he tends to speak only when it is necessary.
