The Contenders

11Hit-Girl (Kick-Ass series)

Most badass moment; this 11-year old girl appears at the bad guys' hideout in a schoolgirl outfit, and Enrico Morricone music starts playing in the background, so you feel it coming.
She calmly kills the 3 adult male guards, including an ice-cold finish shot.

12Marge Gunderson (Fargo)
13Susan Cooper (Spy)
14Elizabeth Sherman (Hellboy II)
15Clarice Starling (Silence of the Lambs)

Why Clarice is #62 in this list. She should be hightest rank in this list. She can beat a serial killer who skins his victims, confront another serial killer without lost her insanity and she's so smart and she have a tragical past of her life. She's the most badass female character.

16April O'Neil (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
17Miho (Sin City)

Very cool film and Miho is really a badass!

18Leeloo (The Fifth Element)
19Imperator Furiosa (Mad Max: Fury Road)
20Susan Murphy (Monsters vs. Aliens)
