Top 23 ESFJ Anime characters (A review)

In this blog post, we will talk about the ESFJ personality type. We will also describe 13 ESFJ anime characters.

The ESFJ personality type

ESFJ people are people loved by others. They have a warm interest in others. They use the characteristics of being Sensory and being a Judge to gather as much detail about others as possible and to turn this information into reasoning about others. 

They want to love people, to find only the positive parts of individuals and that is why they know how to bring out the most beautiful in a person. They are very good at reading others and understanding their point of view. Also, ESFJ people want to be liked by people and that is why they become very supportive of them. People like to be around an ESFJ especially for their gift of making people feel good about themselves.

The ESFJ takes its responsibilities seriously. They value stability and safety, security and have a great power to focus on the details of life. They see before others what needs to be done and do everything to accomplish those things. They like this type of duties, tasks and are extremely good at it.

ESFJ people are warm and energetic. They need the approval of those around them to feel good about themselves. They feel very hurt by indifference and do not understand the ruthless, mischievous. 

They are very generous people who offer a lot of personal comforts to see others happy. They want to be appreciated for what they are and for what they offer. They are very sensitive to the needs of others and, unconditionally, offer help as practical as possible. ESFJs care a lot about others and find it very difficult to accept unpleasant truths about someone they care about.

Having extroverted affectivity as the dominance of their personality, ESFJs are oriented to read others, getting to the point where they change their behaviour according to the person they are with. They have a great need to be pleasant and to be at the helm of things, to control situations.

You can also see the ESTJ anime characters and visually see the difference between ESTJ personality type and ESFJ.

There are also ENFP anime characters that have some similarities.

ESFJ Anime characters

Ren from Konohana Kitan

Ren is a character from the Konohana Kitan series. She has long light pink hair with an oculus pink bow above her hair and light blue eyes. She wears a pink Kimono with flowers and a yellow ribbon that wears white socks and brown briefs.

She is tsundere, she is feminine, perfectionist, proud and extremely calm, but she is quite violent on the inside, something we would expect from a true ESFJ anime character.

Jenny Wakeman from My Life as a Teenage Robot

Jenny has a personality like that of a teenager, she likes to be with her friends, music, fashion, save the world, etc. She is kind to other people and likes to interact with them, she doesn’t like when her mother bothers her with her duties like training to be prepared for enemies.

Jenny’s occupations are, keeping the population of Tremorton safe, with the help of her mother’s invention, the threat detector and being a student in high school, she tries to balance the two occupations.

Mami Tomoe from Madoka Magica

Mami is a complex character, at first, she appears to us as a mature and educated girl, more concerned with helping others than in obtaining seeds of suffering, she sees herself as someone strong and sure of herself, but later we see who feels insecure and guilty for the death of her parents, wanting to save only herself. 

She is a character who does not take loneliness well, since with problems with other magi she ended up becoming a scary and sensitive girl before this Despite her apparent strength, she is an unstable person, who comes to (in one of Homura’s timelines) kill her companions, to avoid “a fate worse than death.”

Milly Ashford from Code Geass

Milly is the granddaughter of Ashford Academy Principal Ruben K. Ashford. Milly is Lelouch’s friend and classmate.

Milly is very cheerful and playful, she often plays on people’s insecurities. She cares deeply for the people around her and is very serious if the situation requires it, she loves festivals and sometimes uses them as a way to find out the secrets of her friends. 

She often teases her friends about random things, she can be very careful. She is eager to discover the secrets of Lelouch, sometimes using extravagant methods as she did when with the whole school to catch Arthur because she thought he had something valuable for him.

Kikyō Kushida

Kushida Kikyou, one of the main characters of the anime, is kind, very sweet, pretty and popular. She belongs to class 1-D, the class where the “least intelligent students” of the grade are, but that does not let her want to reach her goal. 

Most of the boys aim to reach class A, but hers is to get along with everyone. Her goal could be achieved except for Suzune Horikita since this person does not want to have any friends in life, he just wants to be alone, suddenly he began to take hatred but it is not known if it is because Horikita is not his friend or because that she is jealous that she is “friend” with Kiyokata Ayanokouji; 

You can believe that she is not the type of person who gets angry until she goes crazy but it could be noticed that she has another personality and it seems that when she gets angry she leaves everything to her other “I”.

Tamaki Suou from Ouran Host Club

Tamaki Suou (須 王 環) is the male lead in the anime/manga titled “Ouran highschool host club”. He comes from a family of “nobles” who are quite rich and upper class, who think that the lower class are inferior to them. 

Tamaki generally goes to the most prestigious school in the country which would be the great and famous “Ouran” which is believed that half of it is in the name of the Tamaki family which makes it very special within it. 

Tamaki is also the original creator of the Ouran host club which he decided to create based on being able to make the girls in his school happy and being able to fulfil all their wishes, for that reason he decides to take charge of doing it himself, although in the end, it seems that he cannot continue more so he begins to recruit what would be the other five protagonists of the series of which we will talk much later. 

Tamaki is generally someone perfect, he thinks he is a prince, he is quite kind and sweet and above all very chivalrous with the ladies, although when it comes to Haruhi, his personality changes completely.

Leorio from Hunter x Hunter

Leorio is one of the four initial characters. He is 19 years old (although it seems older), he affirms it in several scenes of the anime. Leorio wants to study at the best university to be a doctor, he took the hunter’s exam intending to earn a lot of money. Leorio’s dream seems ambitious, but in reality, he wants to study at an expensive university so he becomes the best doctor.

Leorio is a person who never gives up easily, although the conditions are getting worse, he always keeps going. You never refuse your dreams. At first, he seemed a narcissist and selfish, but when the series attended it became clear that he cares, both for his friends, and for other people in need of help. He has a touchy and reckless character, which on several occasions caused problems for those around him.

Nanami Aoyama from The Pet Girl of Sakurasou

Nanami Aoyama (青山 七 海, Aoyama Nanami) is Sorata’s classmate, who later moves into room 203 of the Sakura dorm.

Even though she is harsh on Sorata, she is actually in love with him, and everyone apart from Sorata has realized this. She ran away from home to become a voice actress and has to live on her own.

Nanami is a diligent and hardworking girl, who works hard to achieve her goals. Nanami shows tsundere behaviour towards Sorata. This is mainly due to a complex that it has, which it does is very competitive and does not want to receive help. Nanami is shy, especially when interacting with Sorata. She helps in any way possible, earning the admiration of the Sakurasou residents.

Nanami is generally a shy person, especially when it comes to her body and feelings. Examples of this are that Nanami thinks that other women have better measurements (although Mashiro and Yuuko have declared that she possesses an almost perfect body); and her shyness about confessing her feelings for Sorata.

Ragyo Kiryuin from Kill la Kill

Ragyo Kiryuin (鬼 龍 院 羅 暁, Kiryūin Ragyō) is the main antagonist of the series, mother of Satsuki Kiryuin and Ryuko Matoi, General Director of Revocs Corporation and ex-wife of Souichiro Kiryuin, known as Isshin Matoi.

Ragyo is a character bathed in luxury, and it shows in her overall presentation and attitude. She is vain and proud, with abundant power and high social status. According to Rei Hououmaru, her character and morals are, to say the least, somewhat questionable. 

She is willing to indulge the whims of her inferiors and is quite agreeable to those loyal to her and equally ruthless toward her enemies. However, she is individualistic, cruel and sadistic, and possesses totalitarian traits that create the need to feel praised and to lead others by making them kneel at her feet. Therefore, although she may please her inferiors, she still sees them as mere servants without dignity.

She has shown to have an unwavering will and a strong devotion to Living Combat Fibers, believing in their supremacy, even over human existence. This mentality is responsible for her seeing humans as an inferior race and using them as mere laboratory rats, being able to use even her daughters if it is for the favour of the Fibers, and causing the extinction of human life if that. it meant the survival of the Living Combat Fibers.

Ragyo also has a broad tendency to reject failure, to the point that he would rather commit suicide than admit that he has failed.

Elizabeth from Black Butler

In the anime and at the beginning of the manga, she is shown as a very happy and somewhat capricious girl. But as time passes and the manga continues, her true personality is seen, a mature girl willing to give everything to protect who she loves.

At first, she is not shown to be proficient in any art, but as the manga progresses her abilities are shown.

The trigger for her to reveal her abilities was her determination to protect Ciel, this happened in the manga more or less from chapter 50 onwards.

Reiner Braun from Attack on Tita

Reiner Braun is a graduate of the 104th Cycle Recruit Troop, second in his class and a former member of the Reconnaissance Legion.

He is a passionate, supportive young man with a strong sense of duty. He took his role as a soldier so seriously that his friend Bertholdt constantly made it clear that he was a “warrior” and not a soldier. He tends to think of others before himself, assuming the consequences of his actions for the good of his peers.

However, he has serious emotional and mental problems as a result of his actions, but despite that, he remains loyal to his cause and was unable to cope with the guilt, beginning to suppress his true memories to escape.

During these events, he forgets his true identity, believing himself to be a human soldier, making it appear that there are some differences between his “soldier” personality and his true self.

He harbours a negative attitude towards himself, referring to himself as a “villain” and a “short-lived killer” that only Bertholdt and Annie can understand.

Maka from Soul Eater

Maka is Soul’s technician and also the main character. She lives angry with her father since he is a womanizer, thanks to this she does not trust men much. She possesses the so-called anti-demon vibrations inherited from her mother that are said to end all evil and make all impure disappear.

In her daily life, Maka is headstrong, direct, and competitive, sometimes letting her emotions get the better of her, something that sometimes results in conflict with her peers, such as when fighting alongside Death the Kid or Black Star.

However, she is also given to admitting her mistakes and is kind and loving to her friends, although she does not hesitate to intervene if they do something inappropriate. 

Maka is mostly known for her courage, and she is always ready to pounce on any enemy, no matter how strong she is. Besides, she has great intelligence and enjoys reading and puzzles. As the daughter of the current Death Scythe, Maka has high expectations of herself.

Stephanie Dola from No Game No Life

Stephanie Dolla (ス テ フ ァ ニ ー ・ ド ー ラ Sutefanii Dōla) is the granddaughter of the former king of Imanity’s humans. She is Sora and Shiro’s subordinate.

Stephanie is expressive and emotional, to the point where she cannot hide them during a game of poker.  She loved her dear grandfather and gets mad when people call her grandfather a fool. She is in love with Sora, due to the promise after losing Rock, Paper or Scissors, and often has violent outbursts to try to free herself from her. 

Although Jibril later stated that the garment did not specify a time frame, and should have disappeared, meaning that perhaps Steph had truly fallen in love with Sora. She loves her kingdom and the world and believes in the potential of the Imanity.

ESFJ Anime Characters Haikyuu!!

Here is a list of some of the most famous ESFJ anime characters on Haikyuu!!

  • Goshiki Tsutomu

  • Michinari Akagi
  • Misaki Hana
  • Ojiro Aran
  • Usuri Michiru
  • Yahaba Shigeru

A character that stands out from this list of ESFJ anime characters from Haikyuu!! Is Toru Oikawa, who is a very energetic and eccentric character, and personifies many ESFJ traits in his personality.

This ESFJ anime character from Haikyuu!! Oikawa is one of the first rivals on the show, and he has a very competitive and social side to his personality, and he tends to get along with everyone around him, but at the same time he can be quite involved in the game and competition of it all.

Toru is also an ESFJ anime character from Haikyuu!! Because of his tendency to be quite loud, and he can be rather talkative fairly often, which are also qualities that may be found in many ESFJ anime characters as well as ESFJ people.

ESFJs are known for their people oriented tendencies, and therefore they may often have very extroverted behavior, but at the same time they are likely to have good views of self as well, and similar to that, this EFJ anime character from Haikyuu!! Also tends to be totally full of himself, but even when he does something that would ordinarily not be received well by others, he is able to do it in such a comical and cool way that most people like him for these oddities instead.

He also has a very caring nature which is typical of many ESFJs, and at the same time, this ESFJ anime character from Haikyuu!! Also tends to have an intense desire to be praised for his work, which may be one of the reasons he is such a social character and why he is always so eager to perform well and get along with others all the time, because ESFJs tend to do that.

ESFJ Anime Characters BNHA

Given below is a list of ESFJ anime characters from BNHA, or Boku no Hero Academia:

  • Inasa Yoarashi (Gale Force)
  • Itsuka Kendo (Battle Fist)
  • Lunch Rush
  • Makoto Tsukauchi
  • Ochako Uraraka (Uravity)
  • Recovery Girl (Chiyo Shuzenji)
  • Sirius
  • Slidin’ Go (Tatsuyuki Tokoname)
  • Tensei Iida (Ingenium)
  • Uwabami

Though he is not mentioned in the list above because his personality trait is somewhat disputed and he has been considered to be an ENFP character as well, a possible ESFJ anime character from BNHA, or Boku no Hero Academia is All for one, who shows some ESFJ traits that might be considered typical of this personality type.

This ESFJ anime character from BNHA is considered to be a Consul personality because it seems to focus on some of the negative traits ESFJs might have, like megalomania and somewhat psychopathic tendencies, which a lot of these people might end up displaying after particularly bad trauma or life experiences. 

This ESFJ anime character from BNHA is also considered as such because of another trait that may be seen in many ESFJ personalities, which is his obsession with power and status, and it is evident that this is a trait that seems to define All for One pretty seriously.

Another ESFJ anime character from BNHA is Kurogiri who may be included in some other personality types as well, but he is included in the ESFJ anime character list due to his important standing on the show as well as in the League of Villains, and has provided the necessary resources for the group’s survival.

Kurogiri is usually a very calm and collected person and also generally respectful towards other people and when meeting new people he greets them in a polite fashion, which shows the tendency of the ESFJ personality to be very proper when the situation demands it, or just generally be the kind of people who are very good with knowing what to do in situations.

Like many ESFJs, this ESFJ anime character from BNHA also acts as a guide or mentor to another character on the show which shows his people-friendly qualities that one might find in an ESFJ personality.

ESFJ Anime Characters Kakegurui

Kaede Manyuda is one of the only ESFJ anime characters on Kakegurui, and he personifies some key features and traits of the ESFJ personality, and he shows traits like being observant and being externally oriented.

This ESFJ anime character from Kakegurui also has a tendency to appear cold and ruthless, but this persona tends to be present more when he is engaging in the gambling.

He can also be a somewhat calculating person who is an extremely prudent and observant, which may be due to the typical introverted sensing function of the ESFJ anime character which makes this kakegurui character very open to his surroundings and what is happening around them.

Furthermore, this ESFJ anime character from Kakegurui always tends to take the high road, which he himself often notes and he has a tendency to let his mindfulness allow for him to predict his opponent’s actions and he often wins due to this. 

He also has deep-seated insecurities, in particular a deep fear of being deemed worthless and discarded which are reasons why he is often included in lists of other personality types as well, but they may also be problems that may plague an extrovert like an ESFJ.

This ESFJ anime character from Kakegurui also makes sure that he is never in a position to succumb to his insecurities, and becomes completely devastated and not motivated to do anything when he does lose, especially when he falls low from his high position and sees no meaning in life anymore and just does everything indifferently. 

He also comes back from losses, however, which is seen in how he gets back on the horse after his losses in a game.

ESFJ Anime Characters AOT

Here are some of the best ESFJ anime characters on AOT, or Attack on Titan:

  • Carla Yeager
  • Colt Grice
  • Frieda Reiss
  • Jean’s mother
  • Lynne
  • Marcel Gaillard
  • Mikasa’s father
  • Petra Ral
  • Reiner Braun

Colt Grice is one of the best ESFJ anime characters on AOT, or Attack on Titan, as he has typical ESFJ qualities like being a dedicated and brave soldier, and he has been seen to risk his life to go retrieve his wounded brother Falco Grice after he came under enemy fire, which are the typical traits of an ESFJ personality that is very devoted to their loved ones.

ESFJ personalities are good at caring for other people as well, which is evident in how this ESFJ anime character from Attack on Titan is able to show great care for his brother as he gave him his hard hat as they fled and made sure his wounds were treated when they returned to the hiding trench. 

However, like many ESFJ personalities that are able to think rationally while also being caring and thoughtful, Colt was also a tactical soldier while caring for his brother, and this showed in the effective way he was able to work with his Commander to plan their attacks, despite his superior officers looking down on him for being an Eldian. 

Furthermore, this typical ESFJ anime character from AOT also always seemed to have a guess of what moves might be made in advance by the enemy and tried to strategize to use their forces and the power of the Titans to take out the threat without losing lives, which shows the extroverted feeling function of this personality type, because this function often enables the ESFJ personality to be able to understand and guess what others are thinking or planning.

However, in times of leisure, this ESFJ anime character seemed to have slight problems, which was seen in the instance of having Pieck Finger share her alcoholic drink, despite being very bad at handling liquor.

ESFJ Anime Characters MHA

Here are some of the best ESFJ anime characters from MHA, or My Hero Academia:

  • Inasa Yoarashi (Gale Force)
  • Itsuka Kendo (Battle Fist)
  • Lunch Rush
  • Makoto Tsukauchi
  • Ochako Uraraka (Uravity)
  • Recovery Girl (Chiyo Shuzenji)
  • Sirius
  • Slidin’ Go (Tatsuyuki Tokoname)
  • Tensei Iida (Ingenium)
  • Uwabami

Itsuka Kendo is a great example of an ESFJ anime character from MHA, and she has the typical ESFJ traits to prove it, which is evident in the fact that she is a spirited girl who is thoughtful of others, and this is something one might find in many ESFJs.

However, at the same time this ESFJ anime character from MHA is also honest and open, and she is able to criticize even her classmates when she thinks that they are wrong, like whenever she karate chops Neito Monoma on the back of his neck to prevent him from antagonizing Class 1-A.

Furthermore, her typical ESFJ caring attitude towards others also enables her to pass on opportunities that would benefit her if she feels other people deserve it better, which is something only a true consul would do.

An instance of this ESFJ anime character’s kindness in MHA is when Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu and Ibara Shiozaki participate in the tournament event of the U.A. Sports Festival in place of her team.

Tetsutetsu has called this ESFJ anime character from MHA the “Big Sister” of the class, because of Itsuka’s cheerful personality, and he thinks that she can bring all of Class 1-B together with this quality of hers.

Lastly, the most important feature of this ESFJ anime character from MHA which makes her so is that she is additionally friendly to people outside her class and seems to hold no signs of ill-will towards Class 1-A, which also makes her a minority of the 1-B student, but she doesn’t care because she is genuinely a good person.

She is good at showing sympathy towards others, even if she is not particularly close to them which is evident in how she showed concern for Izuku Midoriya and Tenya Ida after hearing about their run-in with Stain and helped Class 1-A by telling them what was supposed to be on the First Term Final Exam’s practical portion despite it being somewhat against the rules.

ESFJ Anime Characters HxH

ESFJ anime characters from HxH are as follows:

  • Chimera Ant Queen
  • Kikyo Zoldyck
  • Leorio Paradinight
  • List
  • Pike
  • Pokkle
  • Zepile

Kikyo Zoldyck is a great ESFJ anime character from the show HxH, or Hunter x Hunter, and the typical nature of this woman as a maternal figure is what makes her most like an ESFJ character.

She plays the role of a maternal character in the Zoldyck Family and is also an assassin, who dotes on Killua to extremes and looks forward to seeing him excel in assassination and carrying on the Zoldyck Family’s business.

While this may not seem excessively ESFJ like given that it involves assasination and hurting other people and so on, it does still show that this HxH figure is an ESFJ anime character because it involves her being very sweet and nice and accommodating to those around her, like Killua.

The ESFJ tendency she has to show dedication and love towards those who are close to her is shown in how delighted she is every time Killua displays his coldness, even if it is directed towards her. 

Like many ESFJ personalities, however, she is known to show excessive love and high hopes for killua, and becomes an overprotective, unbalanced parent, which is also something one might experience when they have an ESFJ parent, and she is therefore suspicious of any stranger who wants to get close to him, fearing that they will mislead him.

At the same time, this ESFJ anime character from HxH can also be rather cruel as she had no qualms about testing her fourth child’s power on innocent people, which is likely to result in their deaths, but this is again an indication of the fact that while the ESFJ cares about people and wants to see everyone happy and content in their lives, they do not want that in the caring or altruistic manner of the INFP or ISFP personality.

This ESFJ anime character from HxH also dislikes people thinking her treatment to Killua is cruel and uncaring, as she knocks out Canary after she pleads with Gon, Kurapika, and Leorio to save Killua during their visit to his house

ESFJ Anime Test

While there is no ESFJ anime test, one may go ahead and take the MBTI 16 personalities test to find out which personality type they have, and then they can check out websites like personality database to figure out which anime characters fit that personality type.

This next one is not a link to an ESFJ anime test per se, but it tells you which anime you would like based on your personality type, and you can try it out if you are looking to start watching anime.

ESFJ Anime Characters Naruto

Here is a list of ESFJ anime characters from Naruto:

  • Ayame
  • Banna
  • Chōza Akimichi
  • Ebisu
  • Gamariki
  • Iruka Umino
  • Rock Lee
  • Sakura Haruno
  • Shima

Kabuto Yakushi is a great ESFJ anime character from Naruto, and he is a good example of an ESFJ personality due to traits like being open and having no problems approaching people, which are very core traits of an ESFJ personality.

ESFJ people are always confident in their own words and actions, which is something that may be seen in this ESFJ anime character from Naruto as well.

Surprisingly, however, even though he likes to deal with people and is good at it, this ESFJ anime character from Naruto claims that he is an introvert who doesn’t like to be looked at and who wants to stick to the background.

At the same time, he can be very critical of others, and is able to dismiss their personal desires and outline all the flaws he perceives them to be making, which is something an ESFJ might find relatively easy to do, which is another reason why this Naruto character is an ESFJ anime character.

When he feels that someone is deserving of something other than his criticism, this ESFJ anime character from Naruto is nothing but polite, regarding them with deference, and he even uses the appropriate honorifics, and does not shy away from chastising those who don’t do the same.

Many people will report that the ESFJ personality can also be rather difficult sometimes, which is evident in the fact that this ESFJ anime character from Naruto can also be cruel, preying on sensitive topics in order to rile someone up and punctuating his comments with sarcasm.

There are also some that believe that the contradictions in his character are due to his frequent role as a spy, but the possibility of his personality being like that is just as likely.

ESFJ Anime Villains

Here are some of the most well known ESFJ anime villains:

  • Dwarf In The Flask: Fullmetal Alchemist
  • Ryuk: Death Note
  • Kabuto: Naruto
  • Mokuba: Yu-Gi-Oh!
  • All For One: My Hero Academia
  • Monspeet: Seven Deadly Sins
  • Jaken: Inuyasha
  • Kaname Tosen: Bleach

One of the most well known ESFJ anime villains is the character from Fullmetal Alchemist known as Dwarf in a Flask, and he shows typical ESFJ traits that one might assume to find in an unhealthy ESFJ personality.

Dwarf in a Flash is very human-like in the beginning, and has a beautifully charismatic personality, but later he changes to a more stoic, composed, and almost lifeless, sort of person, which can be indicative of how people’s core traits may sometimes change as a result of circumstances or generally over the course of a lifetime, which is why he has been thought of as belonging to the ESFJ anime villain category.

Dwarf in a flask, an ESFJ anime villain also known as Father, also shows the negative ESFJ traits that may at times develop in people with this personality type, like narcissistic tendencies, callousness, or mercilessness.

Another commonly assumed ESFJ anime villain is Kaname Tosen from the show Bleach, and his quality of kindness he wants to show by taking a path that ensures the least bloodshed at a difficult time is only one of the features of why he fits this category.

Another feature that makes him an ESFJ anime villain is that he is also willing to attack his own people at times, but this is due to the loyalty he feels towards his cause, which may be seen in ESFJ individuals quite often.

He is also quite in favor of creative things like cooking, which justify the ESFJ trait of seeking out fun and creative experiences or concepts.

ESFJ Anime Characters Danganronpa

There is only one ESFJ anime character on Danganronpa that shows all the necessary traits of being an ESFJ personality type, and that is Sayaka Maizono, who is just as kind and caring as most ESFJ personalities tend to be.

This ESFJ anime character on Danganronpa is an idol, and therefore she has a cheerful, sweet, and supporting personality. 

However, even though she has an idol career, Sayaka actually enjoys cooking, which shows her sensing function and shows the typical ESFJ tendency to like something artistic and something that appeals to their senses and in a similar vein, this ESFJ anime character from Danganronpa also likes reading and playing Othello.

Sayaka develops a bond with Makoto Naegi, whom she considers her friend, assisting him on every occasion in Chapter 1, which is another feature of the ESFJ personality as these people tend to be very loving and kind and friendly most of the time, but like many ESFJs who are good at understanding others but don’t always share their feelings, she tends to hide her feelings when she is under great pressure by putting on her public persona. 

This ESFJ anime character from Daganronpa also cares greatly for her band members, and would not hesitate to do something if anything were to happen to one of them, including things that could hurt others. And often it has been seen that Sayaka will do anything even if it’s a risk. 

Sayaka mentions that she often finds herself focused on a particular person, but pushes these thoughts out of her mind to commit herself further to her idol career.

She has joked about being psychic because she understands other people so well, but that is just her extroverted feeling function that makes her empathic and that is also why this Danganronpa character may be considered an ESFJ anime character.


In this blog post, we talked about the ESFJ personality type. We also described 13 ESFJ anime characters.

As a conclusion, the ESFJ takes its responsibilities seriously. They value stability and safety, security and have a great power to focus on the details of life. They see before others what needs to be done and do everything to accomplish those things. They like this type of duties, tasks and are extremely good at it.

ESFJ people are warm and energetic. They need the approval of those around them to feel good about themselves. They feel very hurt by indifference and do not understand the ruthless, mischievous. 

If you have any suggestions regarding other ESFJ anime characters that should be on our list, please let us know!
