13+ ESTJ Anime characters (A detailed list)

In this blog post, we will briefly describe 14 ESTJ anime characters. We will also show the main characteristics of the ESTJ personality type.

The ESTJ personality type

An ESTJ lives in a world of concrete facts and needs. He is currently living, with his eyes constantly scanning around his environment, to make sure that everything goes smoothly and methodically. 

An ESTJ appreciates tradition and laws, rules, having a clear set of standards and beliefs. Everyone is expected to be the same and not too patient with someone who does not have the same value system. They like to value effectiveness and competence and they like to see fast results of their efforts.

ESTJ people are the ones who take control of situations. They have a very clear vision of how things should be, so they naturally take the lead. They are self-confident and aggressive. They are very talented in staging action plans, in seeing what steps are needed to accomplish certain tasks. 

They can sometimes be very critical and with many pretensions, expectations and can express them whenever someone does not meet the required standards. But at least it is to be appreciated that an ESTJ will directly communicate its dissatisfaction, being honest and transparent.

ESTJ people are usually model citizens, pillars of the community. They like interacting with people and they like to have fun. They can be a lot of fun at parties or family gatherings or between co-workers.

An ESTJ must take care of the tendency to be very rigid and too detail-oriented. Because they place value and weight on their beliefs and opinions, it is important to remember to value the opinions of others. If they neglect the affective part, they may have a problem fulfilling the need for the intimacy of others and may hurt others without realizing it, applying logic and reason to situations that would require more emotional involvement.

13+ ESTJ Anime characters (A detailed list)

Asuka is one of two 5 protagonists of the Neon Genesis Evangelion play. It is entitled by Organização NERV as a “second child” and is designated to pilot or mecha (giant robber) EVA Unit 02.

Asuka has a strong personality, but many times she uses these aspects to mask her vulnerability and insecurity, due to her traumatic childhood.

Asuka is what we would call a typical tsundere, aggressive and not afraid to say what she thinks, but deep down she is fragile, she is always interested in obtaining merit from her superiors since for her it is what bases her being, like a true ESTJ anime character.

13+ ESTJ Anime characters (A detailed list)

Agatha (キ ク コ Kikuko in Japanese) is a member of the High Command and a trainer of poison-type Pokémon, although some of her Pokémon are ghost-type, so it is considered that she dominates both types.

13+ ESTJ Anime characters (A detailed list)

Bowser first appeared in the Super Mario Bros game where he and his koopas had captured the residents of the mushroom kingdom and turned them into bricks, bushes, and horsetail plants.

Bowser has since been the eternal rival of the plumbers who kidnaps Princess Peach non-stop … it’s serious! Bowser is the definition of persistence as he will capture the princess even if he has no chance of winning.

Bowser is the most recognized villain in video game history, before Ganondorf, Ridley, Dedede and many more!

Temari from Naruto

13+ ESTJ Anime characters (A detailed list)

Temari is a beautiful and skilled Kunoichi belonging to Sunagakure (sand village), she is the older sister of Gaara and Kankuro, daughter of Rasa, the Fourth Kazekage.

Temari stands out for being a kunoichi with a somewhat strong character with other people, to the point that she is classified by some as one of the most ruthless kunoichis with her enemies, this I think, is the product of the hard childhood she had to live with her brother Gaara and because of how strict they taught her to be from a very young age.

However, she also shows a passive and analytical personality, becoming a good strategist; and some other times she shows a somewhat shy, friendly and motherly personality when she meets her brothers, Shikamaru and currently her son Shikadai.

Kankuro from Naruto

13+ ESTJ Anime characters (A detailed list)

Kankuro as a sand ninja is usually bully, somewhat conceited and imposing, especially with those from other villages (as in the brawl with Konohamaru), however, despite this facade, he is good support for his family and has a friendly side although somewhat cocky, as seen when he approached Naruto in the Chūnin match between Gaara and Lee. 

However, on the battlefield, he is a ruthless, cunning, deceptive and calculating warrior who shows no compassion for his enemies. Just what we expected from an ESTJ anime character.

Sengoku from One Piece

13+ ESTJ Anime characters (A detailed list)

Senkogu appears to be a proud man, and loyal to the World Government. In addition to not accepting a criminal to flee and hating failure, he ends up being irritated when that happens. In his opinion, the Shichibukai are valuable at times, even if they are only pirates. Following the government’s order to cover up the incident of the escape of the prisoners from Impel Down. Sengoku loses faith in the government and even resigns from the Marines.

He seems to be a very calm man, but he is also capable of acts of violence. He has a common sense, however, his justice is not the same as Akainu’s, because he is a mixture of both absolute and moral justice.

Akainu from One Piece

13+ ESTJ Anime characters (A detailed list)

Sakazuki, also known as Akainu, “Red Dog” of the Navy, is the current Fleet Admiral, formerly held the positions of Vice Admiral and shortly after the resignation of former Fleet Admiral, Sengoku, was one of the three Admirals. A man who has his sense of justice, which is very distorted. He is a user of Akuma no Mi, which can even be considered one of the strongest in existence, he is of the Logia type, the Magu Magu no Mi, who turns him into a man of magma.

Sakazuki has a sense of justice of his own, which can even be distorted, due to the tricks he would set up for his justice to prevail, in his view, he would even sacrifice many innocents to eliminate just one criminal, this is shown when he was still a Vice Admiral and ordered the destruction of all escape ships from Ohara, so as not to let any criminal escape.

Big Mom from One Piece

13+ ESTJ Anime characters (A detailed list)

Big Mom is the main antagonist in the Totto Land arc, a land of sweets that is her territory. In the world of One Piece, a place full of pirates and criminals, she holds the position of Yonkō (the dictionary defines them as badass characters par excellence).

Big Mom was born an uncontrollable beast with inhuman power and although today this made her triumph, it psychologically harmed her. Since she was a child she was unable to control her power and wanting to do good, she ended up killing. 

She was also very curious, and when strange beings she did not know appeared, she wanted to rip “that” out of them that made them different, to do them a favour. Her family of origin abandoned her because she was destroying everything, and she never knew why.

Big Mom was not cruel, nor did she want to hurt nobody. She just did not know many things and the power she possessed was such that it made her incapable of being careful, this worsens with her eating disorder, which made them fear her, and people who looked for her were afraid of the Big Mom.

Izumi values the idea of hard work to achieve goals. She is very open, curious and courageous. Her ideology is “One is all and all is one”.
