I doubt this has anything to do with MBTI. There isn't a general hero or hero complex stereotype.

Characters with a dominant feeling function. I'm thinking Eragon and Harry Potter but also I can imagine a guy ESFJ (ok and maybe an ENFJ) character as well. I'm sure they're examples but I can't think of one at the moment.

Are we talking about a person who WANTS to be a hero?

I suppose that'd fit the definition of Hero Complex. The more technical definition is a compulsive desire to right wrongs. Some people in this category cause the situation so they can save the day.

Googled hero complex definition and found

"The hero complex, also known as hero syndrome or superhero complex is an inherent desire to help others. It is a compulsion to help make the world right."

I would say, that there are two types who have some kind of hero complex:

ENFJ: They want everyone to be happy and would give up everything they have to get a peaceful environment. I could really see them as heroes (although the more emotional, Sailor Moon like ones :p)

ExTJ: They are not necessarily all about helping people, peace and happiness, but the other part of the hero complex is "a compulsion to make the world right" which is basically what we try to do. However, ExTJs have the problem, that, if they aren't in touch with their feelings, their way of making the world right can be really subjective and potentially harmful to others.

I agree. I think this sort of thing has no connection to personality types; just simply a sense of self or environmental reasons or other things like major human figures in your life that you aspire to be like.
