Most Badass Female Video Game Characters


The Top TenXW

1Samus Aran (Metroid)Samus Aran is the protagonist of the Metroid science fiction action-adventure game series by Nintendo.

Yeah I didn't know until Smash Bros Brawl campaign. - Lord28

I used to think she was a guy befor I saw she had breasts under her suit

2Bayonetta (Bayonetta)
3Jill Valentine (Resident Evil)

She is really good.

4Faith Connors (Mirror's Edge)
5Chell (Portal)

Destroying an all-powerful AI to save yourself from an underground science laboratory only armed with a gun that makes portals (no bullets) all without having to say a word and keeping your clothes on which is (sadly) rare for female video game characters. Chell is the best!

6Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)Lara Croft is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Square Enix video game franchise Tomb Raider.

The first games on the PlayStation are my favorite games ever and even the newest ones are really good and Lara is a badass.

7Ellie (The Last of Us)

Should be top five at the least!

8Commander Shepard (Mass Effect)
9Elizabeth (BioShock Infinite)

She literally has the power to open portals or tears to other dimensions how is she not in the top 10

10Madison Paige (Heavy Rain)

The Contenders

11Sniper Wolf (Metal Gear Solid)

One of the coolest and most badass characters ever. Sniper Wolf for the win!

12Undyne (Undertale)
13Kitana (Mortal Kombat series)
14Mileena (Mortal Kombat series)
15Midna (The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess)
16Kat (Halo: Reach)
17Sonya Blade (Mortal Kombat series)Sonya Blade is a video game character from the Mortal Kombat series. Debuting in the original Mortal Kombat game from 1992, she was a late addition to the game as developers decided deep into the development cycle that the game needed a female character.
18Tifa Lockhart (Final Fantasy VII)

Favorite video game and favorite character.

19Chun Li (Street Fighter Series)
20Lightning (Final Fantasy)
