15 ISFP Anime Characters You Need To Know About

Colloquially dubbed as the “artists,” ISFJs have Introverted, Observant, Feeling, and Prospecting personality traits. They are more likely to be peace-oriented if they are healthy ISFJs. They also need time and space for themselves to recharge their energy. 

Here are 15 anime characters who can be classified as ISFJs.

#15 Archer and Emiya Shirou

#15 Archer and Emiya Shirou - ISFP Anime Characters

Anime: Fate/Stay Night, Unlimited Blade Works
ISFP Personality Breakdown:

Archer is Rin Tohsaka’s servant for the Fifth Grail War. The future version of Emiya Shirou, Archer, is a hero who has lost faith in his ideals. However, both individuals can be marked under the ISFJ umbrella. 

A cognitive introvert, Archer became a heroic spirit when he was summoned from an alternate timeline. Archer’s nature is quite contradictory. As Emiya, he relentlessly devotes his time and energy to safeguarding humans. But when the man realizes that humans are corrupted, he becomes a heroic spirit with a nihilistic outlook on life. Although Archer is a loyal servant of Rin, he cannot see eye-to-eye with his past self because of Shirou’s idealistic perspective that is yet to fade away. 

An accomplished fighter often unbeatable inside his reality marble, Shirou has Introverted Feeling (Fi-dom) and Extroverted Thinking (Te-Inf). Deep in his heart, Archer still has remnants of hope, which is why he trusts Emiya Shirou in the Stay Night arc when he chooses to engage Ilya’s Berserker. He thinks out loud, which can be determined by his boisterous chant titled Unlimited Blade Works. EMIYA also has Extraverted Sensing (Se-Aux) and Introverted Intuition (Ni-Tert). As a human, Emiya Shirou is a passionate ISFP hell-bent on becoming a Hero of Justice. 

#14 Lucy

Anime: Elfen Lied
ISFP Personality Breakdown:

One of the main characters in this critically acclaimed ecchi series, Lucy, is Queen Diclonius. She belongs to a race of evolved humans, born with projectiles commonly referred to as “vectors.” 

Bullied throughout her formative years and later subjected to experiments, Lucy developed a deep-seated hatred toward humans. Members of her race also face severe discrimination. A shy and reserved girl, Lucy only lets her guard down around Kouta or when Nyu’s persona crops up. Sensitive and mindful of her surroundings, Queen Diclonius is a force to be reckoned with. Her reaction time is lightning fast. Thus she can annihilate her targets with relative ease. 

The pink-haired beauty has Introverted Feeling (Fi-dom) coupled with Extroverted Thinking (Te-Inf). This is visible if the audience notices Lucy’s behavior at the orphanage, where she is subjected to vicious bullying because of her “horns,” eventually culminating in the death of her dog and the subsequent massacre of her torturers. This girl also has Extraverted Sensing (Se-Aux) and Introverted Intuition (Ni-Tert). Lucy is an ISFP you should avoid under all circumstances.
