15 Amazing ESFP Anime characters (A review)

In this blog post, we will present to you 15 amazing ESFP anime characters. But before that, we will briefly describe the ESFP personality type.

The ESFP personality type

It is very pleasant to be in the company of an ESFP person. These are people who live the moment and know how to value every moment at its true value. They are naturally warm and open to relationships with others, liking them to make others happy.

They are generous, wide-hearted. They are honest, direct, and their affection is simple but sincere. They don’t like theory and complexity. They cannot form relationships that require them to be very intuitive or too thoughtful.

They like transparent things, easy to understand, even if their feelings are deep. Their general tendency is to live for the time being and that is why they are sometimes unaware of the direction of their relationship, being easily distracted from certain commitments and promises.

ESFPs are people who give special importance to their love relationship, just as they perceive life in general. They like to be in love, they try to do everything possible from every moment. They do not feel very comfortable thinking about the future because they see life, not in plans but a series of days, one by one. 

For this reason, they are not people to guarantee a long-term relationship. They can commit to day-to-day promises, but they can’t promise anything about plans.

ESFPs are enthusiastic and effervescent. They are usually sociable, popular, gathering people around them. They like to have fun and have people around. They are valued for the way they know how to create an atmosphere when they are with friends. 

They are very focused on the five senses and that is why it can be exaggerated with food, alcohol or drugs. They get along well with all people, although they are not interested in spending time with those who seem boring or who are waiting to communicate with them in an intuitive or too abstract way.

Once you’ve gone through the anime characters list below, you can also take a look at ISFP anime characters. This will help you in understanding these personality types better.


15 Amazing ESFP Anime characters (A review)

Kazuma Kuwabara (or just Kuwabara), is one of the protagonists of the Yu Yu Hakusho manga, published on December 3, 1990. Kuwabara was a young delinquent who always tried to beat Yusuke Urameshi, but, unfortunately, he lost “156 times”. 

Kuwabara’s strong personality made him one of the most explored characters in the anime.

Kuwabara is very confident and proud, and his actions are always taken by his feelings or his honour, and he doesn’t fight girls. Even though he has a frightening appearance, Kuwabara shows that he likes his kitten Eikichi and did not have his love returned by Botan, as shown at the beginning of the anime.

Kuwabara has a good heart, as shown in one of the anime episodes, where he helps one of his friends who is about to lose his job, because of fights and extremely low grades.


15 Amazing ESFP Anime characters (A review)

Knuckles is independent, loyal, a bit stubborn, and often a bit naive. He is a wise hermit warrior who lives in peace with the universe, but because he is very lonely, he usually has a bad character. 

He doesn’t have much of a sense of humour and gets angry easily, but he can always be counted on to save the planet Mobius. Knuckles was originally the “dark” character in the series: a direct rival to Sonic with hidden powers, a mysterious past, and a cold personality.

Although he may be smart and knows Angel Island like the back of his hand, Knuckles can easily be fooled by his naive and gullible nature. Being isolated from the outside world, he grew up believing in the honesty and was unprepared for the manipulation and deceptive nature of Dr Eggman.

Brook was the guardian of an ancient kingdom in West Blue, which is why he is also a swordsman. However, for now, it is unknown why he left this kingdom.

Brook later joined the Rumbar Pirates, led by Captain Yorki “El Cálico”. Yorki made the offer to him on the condition that he do what Brook liked best: make music. Brook gladly accepted, becoming the musician of the crew, willing to make his music cheer up even a child.

Time after; and before entering the Grand Line they found a huge baby whale (at that time the size of a boat) which they called “Laboon”. Brook appreciated her very much for being so playful with the crew and because she was very happy when Brook played the violin.

Mina Ashido

Mina is an extremely cheerful, flirtatious and crazy girl. Most of the time you will see him with a smile on his face. Gets excited easily. In addition to being a carefree and a bit silly girl.

Mina’s quirk allows it to secrete a corrosive liquid, which can control both its solubility and its viscosity. She can use it on offence but also uses it to slide.

Joey is a character who always fights for others, never for himself, always in anime, he fights for the greater good, to help a loved one and many more things. But Joey also contains great willpower that helps him keep moving forward and not give up (Duel against Marik) if he breaks up he gets up and stronger with more desire to always continue helping his friends and never as a hindrance to them.

Gold from Pokemon Adventures 

15 Amazing ESFP Anime characters (A review)

Gold is one of the main characters in the PokeSpe manga. He is from Pueblo Primavera and since he was little he has lived in the company of Pokémon, which is why his neighbours called him the “Pokémon boy”. 

He is an expert billiard player. That is proven multiple times when he throws his Poké Balls using a pool cue. Also in the first episode of the saga, it is seen that he takes his Pokémon to a pool table.

He is careful but crazy, and with a weakness for girls, doing things that he should not do, but he is also brave, because he entered the vortex of time created by Celebi, to pursue “Mask of Ice” whom he manages to defeat, leaving the villain caught in time. Given that he has lived his entire life with Pokémon and brings out the full potential of a newborn, his ability, according to Professor Oak, is breeding Pokémon.

Ty Lee 

15 Amazing ESFP Anime characters (A review)

Ty Lee was a cheerful and energetic teenager hailing from the Fire Nation. The daughter of a nobleman, she attended the Royal Academy of Fire for Girls with her longtime friends, Princess Azula and Mai. 

As a child, Ty Lee dealt with six identical sisters, causing her to feel a loss of individuality, a desire to be a distinct and recognizable person, and a desire for attention from other people. For this, after she matured, she ran away from home and joined a Fire Nation Circus, becoming a skilled acrobatic performer and gaining more personal attention.


15 Amazing ESFP Anime characters (A review)

This is the main character of the Black Clover manga. Asta was born without a hint of magic power in his body, he is the only one in this condition and nothing like it has ever been seen in the world.

Since he was a child he dreamed of becoming the Magician King, while he was raised in an orphanage with his friend Yuno. Both boys had been left abandoned at the same time in a Church in the village of Hage (Place where the first Wise King was born and where he defeated the demon) and they were raised in unison with the same goal to achieve.

This is the very definition of never giving up. This is by far his greatest ability, he has the power to have a clear mind when the night is coming and even if he is about to die, he will give everything to win. 

Eijiro Kirishima 

15 Amazing ESFP Anime characters (A review)

Eijiro is energetic and outgoing, with a fondness for the concept of manhood, often using the terms “masculine” and “unmanly” to describe things that he likes or dislikes. 

Those who exhibit a noble, courageous, or determined attitude tend to emotionally move him to tears, quickly earning his complete admiration, respect, and friendship. Similarly, it will call out traits that are the opposite of that, such as cowardice and foul play. He is also a huge fan of Crimson Riot, a retro hero that he takes inspiration from, including his hero name.

Eijiro is honest and kind, and Evan Almighty came to praise his heroic spirit. Furthermore, he seems to be able to get along with most people, as he is one of the few classmates who is friends with both Katsuki Bakugou and Izuku Midoriya. Eijiro is very dedicated to his friends and is even willing to break the law and rules to help them, and regrets that he cannot.

Like the rest of the protagonists, Mina is the reincarnation of one of the eight warriors who lived to protect this kingdom in her past life. In those times, each planet in the Solar System had a Sailor Scout who protected it, and all these warriors joined together to protect the entire Solar System. 

In turn, the warriors were subordinated to the authority of the royal dynasty of the Silver Millennium, that is, the royal family of the Moon, who were the most devoted and powerful guardians of the entire System. 

In her previous life as Sailor Venus, Mina lived in the Silver Millennium alongside her companions, the other warriors. Once this kingdom was destroyed, they were all reborn on 20th century Earth along with Serenity, the Princess of the Silver Millennium, and her court.
