#15 Mugen - ESTP Anime Characters

Anime: Samurai Champloo
ESTP Personality Breakdown:

One of the protagonists in the hit anime series directed by the legendary Shinichiro Watanabe, Mugen, is a daredevil. His impetuous actions juxtapose with Jin’s cold and calculating moves. The character designer Kazuto Nakazawa himself stated, “…the way Mugen acts is relatively based on his core conviction.” He is often loud and uncouth towards others. 

A thoroughly resilient yet unpredictable fighter, Mugen hates authoritarian figures. The black-haired swordsman loves battles and proves to be quite resourceful. Always mindful of his surroundings, Mugen has Extroverted Sensing (Se-dom) coupled with Introverted Intuition (Ni-Inf). He can analyze on the spot and look for solutions when faced with proficient martial artists. He detests being looked down upon, which is the primary reason behind his clashes with Jin. The Ryukyuan gladiator is known for his Introverted Thinking (Ti-Aux) and Extroverted Feeling (Fe-Tert). A great friend, Mugen, is the ESTP who will always have your back.

Anime: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures Part 6- Stone Ocean
ESTP Personality Breakdown:

Jolyne is the sole daughter of Jotaro Kujo, who lands in a soup after she is framed by her lover. Incarcerated in Green Dolphin Street Prison, the female protagonist soon activates her Stand ability because of a gift from her father. 

Stone Free is a flexible Stand that lets Jolyne unravel some of her body into a string. This stand is adept at eavesdropping from afar and can help her hide or run too. This showcases Jolyne’s Extroverted Sensing (Se-Dom), as she only acts on information she perceives via Stone Free during her stay at the prison. Stone Free also has tremendous destructive power and stamina, much like Jotaro’s Star Platinum. 

Like her father, Jolyne uses her Introverted Thinking (Ti-Aux) effectively against all her combatants. Furthermore, the green-haired hottie has Extroverted Feeling (Fe-Tert), which explains her concern for Emporio and later Ermes, and Introverted Intuition (Ni-Inf). A trustworthy ESTP, Jolyne can be cruel to those who betray her.

ESTP Personality Breakdown:

The main character and primary heroine of this hit venture, Zero Two, is a human-klaxo sapien hybrid and a highly-efficient parasite. This pink-haired beauty wants to “devour” the human souls of all the men who ride with her. That is because she wants to become a human and search for her partner, who called her “darling.”

Always ostracized because she was different, Zero Two tends to lash out unpredictably. The “Partner Killer” faces outrage from Plantation 13’s stamens and pistils when Ichigo helps them realize her true intentions. However, by then, Hiro’s memories return, and despite repeated requests from Ichigo, the man reunites with the woman he has loved from a young age. 

 A girl with Extroverted Sensing (Se-Dom), Zero Two, is constantly on the lookout for new “darlings” because she gets bored with most who ride with her until she meets Hiro. She enjoys the thrill of annihilating her enemies using Strelizia and likes being in control. Furthermore, Zero Two has Introverted Thinking (Ti-Aux), Extroverted Feeling (Fe-Tert), and Introverted Intuition(Ni-Inf). She is an excellent example of a traumatized ESTP.

The greatest attribute of Yumeko is Extroverted Sensing (Se-dom). She willingly puts herself in precarious situations by gambling heavily. To Yumeko, the thrill of winning a battle is secondary; what takes priority is her need to play in a high-risk environment. A perceptive individual, Yumeko can easily catch her foes when they cheat.

ESTP Personality Breakdown:

Popularly known as “the Ogre,” Yujiro Hanma is the primary antagonist in the series. He is also Baki and Jack Hanma’s biological father. The strongest warrior on Earth, Yujiro, has defeated all sorts of monsters and powerful humans. He even beat the US Armed Forces at the tender age of 16.

A man who craves absolute power and is a megalomaniac, Yujiro is a very selfish individual. Quite a complex character, Yujiro Hanma is regretful that his actions led to Emi Akezawa’s death. However, he rarely shows his soft side around others. Yujiro is relentless in his pursuit of powerful enemies. He has often fought on behalf of nations that were being colonized and oppressed. 

The living embodiment of an ESTP, Yujiro has Extroverted Sensing (Se-Dom), showcased throughout the series as Hanma only lives to fight stronger opponents that thrill him. His Introverted Intuition (Ni-Inf) is rarely noticed. Yujiro also has Introverted Thinking (Ti-Aux) since he prefers confrontations with no planning and Extroverted Feeling (Fe-Tert) traits. 

#6 Aoi Todo

#6 Aoi Todo - ESTP Anime Characters

Anime: Jujutsu Kaisen
ESTP Personality Breakdown:

A crucial side character in the renowned anime series, Aoi Todo is a Jujutsu sorcerer who studies at Kyoto Jujutsu High School. Aoi Todo revels in fights with like-minded opponents, which is why he tears up when Itadori discloses his type of woman. 

Todo hates boredom more than anything else. Megumi’s response to his query surrounding women prompted an immediate beatdown that resulted in Megumi getting severely injured. Todo mentors Yuji and helps the latter master the Black Flash move, which he then uses against Hanami, an S-grade cursed spirit. 

Confident and boisterous, Todo is marked by his overwhelming Extroverted Sensing (Si-dom) paired with Introverted Intuition (Ni-Inf). His Introverted Thinking (Ti-Aux) is visible when he guides Itadori during their battle against Hanami and his ability to strategize during a fight. Additionally, Aoi has Extroverted Feelings (Fe-Tert), which is probably his weakest feature. Aoi Todo is a chad ESTP sorcerer willing to do what is necessary to take out formidable enemies. 

#5 Yoruichi Shihoin

#5 Yoruichi Shihoin - ESTP Anime Characters

Anime: Bleach
ESTP Personality Breakdown:

The former captain of the 2nd division and the ex-commander of the secret police, Yoruichi Shihoin, is a resourceful woman who operated as a Shinigami for over a century. Kisuke Urahara is her closest friend, which is why Sui Feng deeply resents Urahara. 

Shihoin uses her reasoning and experience from previous fights to humiliate her opponents. Her expertise in Shunpo (Flash Step) allows her to rescue Ichigo and escape swiftly before the latter is struck down by Byakuya. Yoruichi plays a crucial role in strengthening Ichigo and helps him achieve Bankai in 3 days. 

Like a cat, Yoruichi is conscious of her environment, which shows that she has Extraverted Sensing (Se-dom) paired with Introverted Intuition (Ni-Inf). Even her role as the head of Covert Ops is a testament to her (Se). Yoruichi’s mischievous nature symbolizes a Fe child (Extroverted Feeling). Additionally, this purple-haired buxom woman has Introverted Intuition (Ni-Inf). Yoruichi is the ESTP you’d want on your team. 

#4 Kenpachi Zaraki

#4 Kenpachi Zaraki - ESTP Anime Characters

Anime: Bleach
ESTP Personality Breakdown:

The captain of the 11th division in the Gotei 13, when Ichigo first comes across Kenpachi, his aura alone scares the protagonist. Kenpachi lives for the sake of blood. His hobby (and job) includes fighting strong opponents in the hopes that he’ll someday have a worthy battle. 

Hailing from the rotten district of Rukongai, Zaraki’s psyche was shaped by events during his childhood. Raised amidst a territory prone to violence, Zaraki became a proficient swordsman in no time. Unohana is the only person Zaraki truly respects, as the battle between the two gave him tremendous joy. 

It is visibly apparent that the black-haired shinigami has Extroverted Sensing (Se-dom), as he consistently seeks pleasure through conflicts that affect his 5 senses. Kenpachi prefers direct encounters with his foes, which explains his inferior Introverted Intuition (Ni-Inf). Straightforward and with minor to no grasp on morality, Kenpachi has Introverted Thinking (Ti-Aux) and Extraverted Feeling (Fe-Tert).

ESTP Personality Breakdown:

Isaac, the 12th chairman of the Hunter Association and the head of the Exam Commission, is an old man with terrifying power. Once the strongest Nen user in the world, Netero had grown weaker as old age caught up to him. 

An obvious Se-Dom (Extraverted Sensing), Netero thanked The Ant King for giving him a worthy battle. Look at this quote by Isaac:

When? When did I start waiting for my opponent to make the first move? When, indeed? It became a routine. The loser held out his hands in gratitude for the lesson and I graciously accepted without skipping a beat. As if that was what I wanted!! That’s not how it should be!! For so long, I sought the height of perfection. I dreamed of giving my heart and soul to battle an unstoppable adversary!! I’m a lucky man. I’m thankful for everything that led me to this point…that led me to you!!” 

Netero has a ton of energy; he is mischievous and enjoys challenging newbies and mature hunters. Additionally, Isaac has Introverted Thinking (Ti-Aux) and a well-developed Introverted Intuition (Ni-Inf), alongside Extroverted Feeling (Fe-Tert). Netero fits comfortably on this ESTP list.

#2 Rebecca Revy Lee - ESTP Anime Characters

Anime: Black Lagoon
ESTP Personality Breakdown:

Rebecca Lee is a Chinese-American woman who is the main female protagonist of this seinen series. She is a wild one, capable of rash decisions. When Rock joins her gang, her Introverted Intuition (Ni-Inf) receives a boost. Thus she can work more efficiently.

Because of the trauma, she endured at the hands of her father and the Police, Revy turned into an absolute death machine. During the series, Lee’s problematic morality has resulted in the death of innocents. This brown-haired sarcastic chic is a nihilist who sees this life being devoid of hope. She tries to experience some semblance of pleasure through her violent tendencies, which shows that Revy has Extroverted Sensing (Se-Dom). 

Her Introverted Thinking (Ti-Aux) and Extroverted Feeling (Fe-Tert) traits frequently lock heads. Rebecca tries to be practical but can’t help but feel compassion towards Rock and even Dutch. A full-blown unhealthy ESTP, you wouldn’t wanna wake the dragon within her.

Ryo is a lecher; his perverted antics around attractive women demonstrate the presence of Extroverted Sensing (Si-dom) within him. This is his most significant trait. His Introverted Thinking (Ti-Aux) and Introverted Intuition (Ni-Inf) are well fleshed-out. This gives him an edge during fights against formidable enemies. 

The black-haired pervert also has an Extraverted Feeling (Fe-Tert). The man who never misses a shot, Ryo is the ESTP guard you should hire if you fear for your life.
