Those that fit the Advocate personality type are empathetic, diplomatic, and selfless. It’s not just anime characters who have this problem.
Anime has a wide range of characters, from shonen action heroes to seinen antiheroes to passionate shojo protagonists, and everything in between.. It is possible to classify these characters using archetypes like “himbo” or “tsundere,” as well as sixteen MBTI personality types.
A four-letter code identifies an individual’s MBTI personality type. The Advocate archetype is represented by the INFJ code, and it shares some characteristics with the Consul and Defender kinds. For the most part, advocates are shy and quiet people who work tirelessly for the benefit of others. For them, justice and fairness for others is a goal and they will work diligently to attain it.
1. Neji Hyuga Looks Out For His Family (Naruto)
The bitter determinist who viciously attacked his cousin Hinata and scorned Naruto’s desire of becoming Hokage didn’t seem like much of an Advocate at first. During the Chunin Exams story arc, Neji was defeated by Naruto and quickly became a believer.
In the years since, Neji has worked relentlessly for justice and his family’s sake. He’s not going to put up with anything bad, corrupt, or painful in this world. It was a genuine Advocate’s move when he gave up his own life to protect Hinata. He’s willing to die for what he believes in.
2. Shigeo Kageyama Looks Out For Others (Mob Psycho 100)
In Mob Psycho 100, Shigeo (commonly known as Mob) exhibits a generally apathetic demeanor, making it difficult to think that he would go out of his way to help others. Mob’s calm exterior hides a kind big brother who is willing to do anything for the sake of those who need his assistance.
If someone tries to lure him with crooked power or life shortcuts, Mob won’t let them get away with it. He doesn’t have a specific goal in mind, other than to use his psychic skills for the greater good. He’d much prefer be without those abilities than have them used against him.
3. Alphonse Elric Seeks Justice For Others (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood)
Alphonse Elricfrom Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhoodcan be described as a variety of MBTI types, such as the Defender and Mediator, but he can also be described accurately as an INFJ Advocate in many ways. Alphonse, on the other hand, is a patient and polite young man who constantly puts the needs of others ahead of his own.
Despite the fact that Edward does his best to help those in need, Alphonse is even more selfless than him. As an INFJ, Al’s moral compass is even more razor-sharp. Anyone who harms, abuses or deceives another person will be confronted by Al immediately.
4. Levy McGarden Wields Magic For Her Friends’ Sake (Fairy Tail)
The Fairy Tail guild’s wizards have a great sense of solidarity and friendship, which is where their strength comes from. The erudite Levy McGarden, for example, fits the Advocate character, as do many of the other protagonists, defenders, and cons.
Even though Levy is an INFJ, her drive to protect her friends and fight for justice in Fiore is undeniable. For her part, she was quick to forgive Gajeel Redfox for his cruel treatment of her because he exhibited genuine regret for his actions. They have no concept of resentment.
5. Itachi Uchiha Fought For True Justice (Naruto)
INFJs and INTPs aren’t the only Naruto characters who embody the protective MBTI types. Itachi Uchiha, despite his gift, always had a strong sense of justice and was willing to risk his life to uphold his ideals of honor and justice, even if no one ever thanked him for it.
As a member of the Leaf Village tribe, Itachi had a great sense of loyalty to it. Slaying the disloyal Uchiha clan was done with a sad heart as he obeyed orders from his superiors. Itachi decided to spare Sasuke since he thought he was too young to understand. There’s no need to kill a bystander like Sasuke.
6. Yuki Sohma Won’t Let Akito Bully Him Anymore (Fruits Basket)
Sohma’s abusive father, Akito, regards Yuki Sohma as one of his favorite Zodiac sign members. In Fruits Basket, Yuki is held to high standards, but he refuses to be used as a pawn by Akito and his mother. He understands, as an INFJ, that this isn’t justice.
Even if he kicks around his tsundere competitor Kyo, Yuki cares greatly about others, and he can’t take the thought of Akito bullying his other Zodiac members. Akito’s forces were overwhelmed when Yuki joined forces with Kyo and the heroine Tohru Honda, as well as Momiji. A bully will not be tolerated by an INFJ.
7. Emilia Will Only Do What’s Right For Others (Re:Zero)
Emilia, a half-elf, is one of several candidates for the throne in Re:Zero. She is also a close buddy of Puck, a cat-like spirit, and an associate of Roswaal Mathers. The most important thing about Emilia is that she is Subaru Natsuki’s girlfriend and ally, making her somewhat of a love rival to Rem.
Emilia is a brilliant and thoughtful girl who will say or do anything for the sake of people who need her, but she also possesses the noble and altruistic heart of an INFJ Advocate. She has a strong moral compass. Bribes, threats, or other forms of coercion will not sway her.
8. Momo Yaoyorozu’s Heart Burns For Justice (My Hero Academia)
A large number of INFJ Advocates place a high priority on the general concept of justice, and many of them may identify “justice” as a fundamental reason for what they do. Instead than relying on the laws of society to determine what is right and wrong, Advocates choose to invent their own standards of justice and righteousness.
The Advocate, Defender, and Protagonist MBTI types are all crucial to the way superheroes operate, and this is evident in many of the characters in My Hero Academia. This features Momo Yaoyorozu, a brilliant young woman whose burning dream is to become a professional athlete and to rescue lives as a heroic figure.
9. Van Hohenheim Defends The Innocent However He Can (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood)
To achieve true justice and equality, Stone Van Hohenheim sets his own laws, unlike a law-oriented consulate or charismatic protagonist. When it comes to fighting against Father’s ambitions and protecting humanity, Hohenheim employs his knowledge of the magical arts in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.
Despite the fact that Hohenheim’s wandering lifestyle separated him from his family, at least it paid handsomely. Hohenheim sought true justice in his own way, and in doing so, he contributed to the downfall of Father. Also, he’s a generous and kind person, so it’s easy to like him.
10. Armin Arlert Always Fights For What’s Right (Attack On Titan)
When Eren was a child, Armin Arlert was one of Eren’s closest friends and he always put others first, even if it meant putting his own life at jeopardy. When it comes to protecting Paradis Island, Armin shares Eren’s passion for protecting innocent lives.
As an INFJ, Armin is capable of working with anybody he has to in order to protect the people he cares about and fight for true justice. Even if it means betraying his evil friend Eren, Armin is willing to do what is right.
