List of Top 10 INTJ Female Characters in Animes, Ranked
10. Motoko Kusanagi (Ghost in the Shell)
Motoko is well-known for her Stoic and stern attitude throughout the series. She is a dedicated woman, always trying to bring justice to the table, and takes her work quite seriously.
Fearless and overconfident, Motoko is hardly swayed by difficult challenges. Part of this confidence comes from the fact that she is a highly skilled character, as compared to the rest of the members from the series.
Motoko is a skillful woman, having good knowledge of hacking, leadership and different combat techniques. Assertive, bold and intelligent, she is worthy to be put in the ranked list of INTJ female anime characters.
9. Teresa (Claymore)
From this image itself, you can see the cold and ruthless eyes. Teresa is one of the boldest and dangerous character from the series Claymore as well as from this list.
She has a violent personality, often seen killing, without a single thought or regret. She is shown to be very skilled in combat in multiple areas combined. She is definitely serious about what she wants to do.
8. Homura Akemi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica)
Homura is a very intelligent and observant girl. Her nature is reserved and quiet, which does not allow others to effectively communicate with her on a larger scale. During her schooldays, she was known to be a very under-confident and depressed girl, and often faced harassment and bullying from other students.
Physiologically, she is a little bit frail due to her heart complications, because of which she was unable to perform certain exercises. Because of her painful past experiences, she gradually became emotionless and detached from the world.
7. Makise Kurisu (Steins;Gate)
Makise Kurisu is not only an INTJ, she is one of the best female anime characters. As we all know, she is a very practical, serious and mature girl. She is also highly intelligent, and possesses typical sarcastic behavior of an INTJ. Because of her high intellect, she loves experimentation and scientific theories.
She is often termed as a “Tsundere” character by Okarin. Even then, she does not appreciate such remarks and is often seen to be disturbed by pathetic comments made by him.
While talking, she tends to be straightforward, putting theories and practical knowledge on the table so that others can understand what she is talking about. She is usually calm and less emotional while communicating with others.
6. Shinobu Kochou (Demon Slayer)
Shinobu is very deceptive, to the point where even the smartest people will fail to understand her true core personality without dwelling into her past. Despite being an introverted girl, she shows herself as quite extroverted, cheerful and sociable. She is always found to have a smiling face, despite the situation.
On a deeper level, she hates demons very much because of her dark past. Even if she looks quite girly and poised from outside, she is literally the most dangerous hashira out of the 9 hashiras in Demon Slayer. She is a very intelligent and skilled swordswoman.
She never thinks twice before killing any demon that comes in her way, so it’s better for them not to mess with her!
5. Re-L Mayer (Ergo Proxy)
When I watched this series, I was not sure how is it even possible for a character, especially a female one, to be so harsh and cold. Well Re-L Mayer is one of a kind, a rather reserved and serious girl. She was trained to remain indifferent and emotionless to be able to confront enemies when necessary without hesitation.
INTJ’s are curious, and so is Re-L Mayer. She is a quite independent and highly intelligent character. What sets her apart from the rest of the characters from this list is her perfectionist attitude.
She has a rigid and structured routine in her life. While she might be easily mistyped as an ISTJ, remember that she herself does not like to follow rules without questioning them.
4. Lust (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Lust from Fullmetal Alchemist is a very well-known and famous character, because of her attire, personality and nature.
She is typically very sadistic and manipulative. She can easily manipulate others just by using her seductive style of talking, thereby gaining access to crucial information from them that aids her in planning an attack or action against her enemies.
Usually, we see her as calm and confident all throughout the series. She also possesses some superiority complex because she always rants about how humans are hopeless because of their selfish and foolish nature.
3. Yelena (Attack on Titan)
Yelena is one of the very unique female characters from the Attack on Titan series, next to Mikasa Ackerman. She is calm and composed, just like a typical INTJ character. Moreover, she is also quite sarcastic and uses a very odd humorous tone of voice while communicating.
This character is very serious, and she does not hesitate before killing others when the situation arises. She is best known for being one of the most loyal characters in anime, especially loyal to Zeke, as she believes him as a god and inspiration. Intelligent, decisive and goal-oriented, she is quite self-reliant when it comes to taking quick and effective decisions. She possesses good commanding and leadership skills.
2. Hitagi Senjougahara (Bakemonogatari)
Hitagi is like a typical INTJ character, often having straightforward conversations and ultimately hurting others on an emotional level. Personality-wise, she is a good-looking girl, however a little weak because of participating less in sports activities in school.
INTJ’s usually have tons of information in their heads, and Hitagi is one such character who has a good amount of knowledge when it comes to astronomy. This indicates her potential intellect and curiosity.
1. Kaguya Shinomiya (Kaguya-sama: Love is War)
Most of the INTJ personality type characters are smart and rational. Same is with the case of Kaguya as well. This girl has a calm and collected personality, however a slightly more monotonous in her expression and behavior. She is very respectful while addressing other people.
INTJ’s tend to be obsessive, and here, Kaguya is obsessed with Miyuki and thinks about different strategies to make him surrender and confess in front of her. She is shown to be somewhat dramatic while thinking out her strategies in her mind, often resembling a courtroom discussion involving multiple characters. She is also quite manipulative at some point.
High Level Introverted Intuition aids her in planning the day ahead. However, she can be laid-back, and uses her money very carelessly. Despite being reserved, she still cares a lot about the other members of the student council. Kaguya best describes a perfect INTJ character and hence tops the list.
