  • Gintoki Sakata (Gintama)
  • Illumi Zoldyck (Hunter X Hunter)

Now that we have our top 5 list we will take a look at each character in a while. Before that, we will understand what exactly is an enneagram type 9w8 and determine what traits these personalities have and why an anime will fall into this category.

What Is The Enneagram Type 9w8?

The enneagram type 9w8 associates with the type 9 mostly but also shares traits from the type 8 enneagram. Compared to other type 9 enneagrams, these types are more outspoken and like to take more risks! 

These individuals like to remain out of harm’s way but they have this innate urge to be assertive hence they have conflicting traits due to the fact that they share traits from two different enneagrams. So they tend to avoid conflict but if pushed a lot they will speak up and won’t back down at all! So be careful when you deal with them. They may seem harmless and easy to take advantage of but they will fight back if you exceed the boundaries they have set up!

These individuals like to simplify issues they are facing. If something is very stressful they will like to avoid it completely but in other cases they will try to minimize the magnitude of problems they experience. This may be very soothing in the initial term but as things go along, the problem will start becoming bigger and bigger and eventually the enneagram will have to face the music. They can’t run away from problems forever.

All in all, this enneagram is creative and optimistic. They are supportive and engage well with people because they are sociable. They are comfortable talking to people and enjoy the experience because they get to learn new things, can figure out what is going on around them and what things, if any, they need to be aware of.

Now that we have a general idea of this enneagram, we will take a deeper look at its personality by looking at its fears and desires!

9w8 Anime Characters: Top 5

Saitama – One Punch Man

He is a thin man who has a good build with average height; he is bald but had hair which he lost due to the intensity of his training with the hero regime.

He is a laid back person that tends to put in the bare effort required but that is because he believes in his capabilities. He actually years to meet someone who is of his match.

He is extremely powerful and has actually fallen into an existential crisis because of which he is always questioning his existence. He is so powerful that he despises the lack of worthy opponents. He has the habit of allowing his opponent to rant about how powerful they are before he finishes them with a single punch.

Generally, he is very humble and does not mind letting others take the credit. For example, he once defeated an enemy dressed up as a police officer but if he had revealed who he was he would have gotten much fame.

He is smart too in the sense that he is able to pick up on important cues in the environment and figure out what is going on. Furthermore he is seen to show remorse towards his enemies as well.

Although he is a good fighter, he prefers to avoid conflict especially when someone is trying to provoke him. Even if people insult him he does not pay much heed and prefers to walk away – unless that insult is about his baldness.

Shota Aizawa – My Hero Academy

He likes to dress in black clothes and often wears a worn out expression on his face. His black hair which is shoulder length is in a messy carefree fashion which he tends to keep open instead of tied. He is pale skinned and tall. Not to mention his eyes which are always half open and seem tired and flat.

He is a teacher who has many expectations from his students however he is also stern and apathetic. He seems reserved and someone who comes off as cold, impatient and emotionless.

Although he seems to be carefree and emotionless, he genuinely cares about his students and wants the best for them. Also, he tends to avoid unnecessary situations but will stand up where required; he is not scared of voicing his concerns or being assertive in matters that mean something to him.

He grins when he is impressed by his students and will also show his wrath to enemies who have provoked him especially by hurting his loved ones.

Kazuto – Sword Art Online

He is known as Kirito and is the protagonist of the anime series Sword Art Online. He has ridiculously handsome looks, pale skin and dark black hair and seems like the perfect person to play the role of a hero in an anime series.

He is a calm character who is willing to sacrifice himself for his friends and loves them dearly although he may not be very expressive about it. He is also empathetic and tends to others when they experience loss and pain such as when he comforted Silica when she lost Pina.

He is also a very determined character who is willing to go the extra mile in order to achieve what he set out to get; he will stop at nothing to reach his goals. Hence he can be described as someone who is committed, loyal and honorable in his ways and words.

Sakata Gintoki (Gintama)

He is the main protagonist of the Gintama series. He is the founder and president of the Yorozuya, as well as a highly-skilled samurai, having fought in the Joui War in the past. During the war, he became known as the Shiroyasha (literally meaning “White Yaksha”, a kind of demon in Buddhism and Hinduism) due to his powerful swordsmanship, demonic appearance, white clothing, and silver hair.

He is one of the lazy 9w8 characters who is lounging around and talking about things he really doesn’t know anything about. He is unwilling to work properly hence he is always late in the rent. He is also very poor and often has to hide when his landlady comes to collect the rent. 

He is an extrovert who is generally very sociable; he will joke around, attend events with his friends and like to hang out. He is shown as a cowardly character who is afraid and would run away in the time of need. However, he is actually someone who would die for his friends to whom he is very much attached.

Illumi Zoldyck – Hunter X Hunter

He has an intriguing appearance. He is quite tall and is dressed in green apparel. He has jet black long hair that trails down his body all the way to his lower back. He has large eyes that are black and pupil less. 

Like other enneagram of this type, he is not very expressive; he holds a stone faced expression which rarely shows his feelings. He speaks in a pleasant but absent minded tone which barely reveals how he actually feels like.

Despite this, he has much love for his little brother who he is committed to protect. He has instilled in his brain a needle that causes him to run from those battles he cannot win. He, thus, is prepared to do anything for his safety. 

Although he is generally devoid of human emotions, he does have great desire with him to attain the things he wants.
