Best Animated Female Characters from Disney Movies & Pixar

The Top Ten

1 Mulan Fa Mulan, a character inspired by an actual historic figure is a character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 36th animated feature film Mulan, as well as its sequel Mulan II.

She is queen! She risked her life for her father and she helped lead her army to victory she is like the Chinese Joan Of Arc! LOL! - missyweirdo

She proves that women are just as strong as men. Pure awesomeness. - Goku02

Mulan is on my list on top ten female badasses in movies! Come and vote for her! - missyweirdo

She is the female character I have ever seen.

2 Rapunzel Rapunzel is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 50th animated feature film Tangled, and its short sequel Tangled Ever After. She is the tenth Disney Princess, the first Disney Princess to be CGI-animated, and the first Disney Princess to have freckles or green eyes.

She has a goal in life and always tries her best to achieve it. - Goku02

What! She should be 1st. She is prettier than Mulan with eyes like seeds and lips thin as paper. Everyone is Insane with Mulan, Tiana, Pocahontas, Merida, Elsa and other ugly faces. People just...just have been taught to worship the ugly tomboys than mary sues. But rapunzel is very charming and brave also. She is a perfect mix. Mulan just mudered 1000 soldiers and acted to be helpless one who can't do anything but can do at the last moment. She was stupid when Mushu sneezed and she said her name as 'Achhoo' and could have changed her clothes and removed her makeup when Li Shang came. And if the pain was not reacting when u saved Li Shang, why u fainted afterwards, Mulan? But Mulan is still nice.

3 Ariel Princess Ariel is a fictional character and the title character of Walt Disney Pictures' 28th animated film The Little Mermaid.

She saved Eric and she broke her daddy's rules! You go girl! - missyweirdo

The most beautiful singing voice.

My gorgeous girl.

I love her voice - RainbowArtist191

4 Snow White Snow White is a fictional character from Disney's first ever film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves . She is Disney's first ever Disney Princess and is the only Disney Princess to have her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame .

BEST princess ever created - RainbowArtist191

The One Who Started It All

She fell for an old witch trick. - Randomator

She needed a man to save girl power here - missyweirdo

5 Elsa Queen Elsa of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.

She treats HER OWN SISTER like she is some ANNOYING DOG she doesn't want to hear.

Then, she runs away while HER OWN PEOPLE almost FREEZE TO DEATH while she sings A SELFISH SONG about the cold not bothering HER anyway and doing whatever SHE wants to do (while making a revealing transparent dress with a high slit in the side).


Then she makes an EVIL SNOW DEMON to try to kill her OWN SISTER and ONE OF HER OWN SUBJECTS.

And, then, she thinks she can fix everything and win her subjects' hearts back by crocodile tears after she already MURDERED HER SWEET LITTLE SISTER.

The only reason why Anna is still alive at the end of the STUPID MOVIE is because she is so AWESOME, SWEET, LOVING, FORGIVING, and utterly AMAZING.

Elsa deserved to be STABBED TO DEATH.

I don't care. Your hateful comments (which I can see coming) will NEVER BOTHER ME ANYWAY. So there, lovers of this horrible movie ...more

She was a monster, she started a big mess and Anna had to go and fix it all, she is nothing but a burden to be honest! - missyweirdo

How About The Worst Because She Has Brainwashed Over 5 Trillion Little Girls Across The Globe And Making Their Parents Go Suicidal

No! I accidentally voted for her instead of Snow White! I hate elsa! She's the worst!

6 Judy Hopps Officer Judy Hopps is the protagonist in Disney's 2016 animated feature film Zootopia. The first rabbit to be in Zootopia's police force, Judy is determined to make the world a better place while breaking preconceptions about other species. Teaming up with a fox named Nick Wilde, she sets off on her more.

She's smart,awesome, and doesn't need a man to make her happy.She's also better than annoying Ariel and overly-annoying Rapunzel combined! (Just don't tell the Rapunzel fans-they'll come after you with torches and want your head on a stick).

Out of all these characters here's why Judy Hopps is the best. She's determined, helpful, honest and hardworking. Now look at all the other characters, they're princesses who just looked pretty and had a prince save them. The princesses don't have the outstanding qualities of the first bunny cop in Zootopia, Judy is a good role model to all to see beyond bigotry and political corruption.

I like characters who are tomboyish, smart and awesome that Judy had proved. I like her adventurous personality and her style, go Judy! - Sugarcubecorner

Judy is awesome! She's brave, smart and cool!

7 Jasmine

Jasmine needs to be in the top 5. People don't like her just because she's an arab - mariazobeidi

The best Disney princess. I can't believe she was forgotten. Belle is way more than a feminist poster child. She's smart, witty, loyal, adventurous, and has a very pretty design. Plus her romance with the Beast is, oddly enough, the most believable in all of Disney canon. - Phenenas

One of my smart fictional character, I love her and I think she and Mulan are the best! - Sugarcubecorner

Belle is the best princes of all time. She is animated very well, but she can't beat; Mulan, Rapunzel, Ariel, Snow White, Elsa, Judy Hopps, or Dory. Either way she can beat Jasmine though.

She's so COOL. And pretty, witty, kind and brave - RainbowArtist191

9 Esmeralda Esméralda, born Agnès, is a fictional character in Victor Hugo's 1831 novel The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.

She protects her people, kicks ass, fights for justice, judges by what's inside and has a goat. The best female character by Disney, case closed. - lahjakori

She is a powerful and beautiful woman!

10 Dory Dory is a major character from the film, Finding Nemo and its sequel, Finding Dory. She is a blue tang known for her short-term memory loss and tends to forget almost everything, even the fish that she knows personally. This makes the mission to find Nemo even more difficult for Marlin.

Ok I'm sorry how is dory number 9? This is crazy! She is so funny! And inspirational! She has to be the best. She is 10x better than any disney princess. After all she taught everyone to just keep swimming.

Dory is the best! She's hilarious! - Goku02

I like sand! Sand is squishy!

She is adorably cute...I love her😍😘

26 Anger

Hello? Anger is a MALE character. What kind of idiot put this one on this list? - RainbowArtist191

Was somebody confused and thought that since Anger was a part of Riley, that makes him female? Cause it doesn't.

Notice the title says FEMALE characters, Anger is a male character

You could have put this as "Riley's Mom's Anger" instead of just "Anger"

27 Lilo
28 Riley Anderson
29 Edna Mode Edna Mode is a fictional character from Pixar's Incredibles Franchise. She is a well-known suit designer for super heroes of all kind. She has a slightly spunky attitude and firmly believes that your costume should be powerful, while still looking good.

She's the coolest fairy I've ever known - RainbowArtist191

She is a kind-hearted fairy

The best fairy. don't like Tinkerbell cartoons at all,but she's the prettiest. - tbell4ever

31 Mal

Independent but not the typical perfect princess. Relatable because she's just someone who wants to fit in & be herself.

YES, Mal is amazing and I love that her character is a badass like her mom!

32 Audrey Ramirez

If you're badass enough to run through danger without getting hit by flying debris, you're probably a Ramírez. - SourNote2014

33 Eve (Wall-E)
34 Wendy
35 Disgust Disgust is a major character in the 2015 Disney/Pixar film, Inside Out. She is one of the five emotions inside the mind of Riley Andersen.

She literally cracks me up

Needs to be higher. - Randomator

"That's It. I'm Done." She's amazing! why is she SO LOW! - tbell4ever

36 Terkina

She's not perfect. She's not even that nice. But she's likeable, and she cares very much about Tarzan, her best friend. So while she can come across as a little mean, her heart can be in the right place, such as when she was younger and she helped Tarzan to climb a tree when he was lagging behind with the rest. She's funny, she's energetic, she's mischievous and daring, and she honestly sounds like a lot of fun to be around. - SourNote2014

Wow, I didn't figure out that Terk was a girl until like the 5th time I watched Tarzan

37 Anna Princess Anna of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.

She looks a lot like princess Daisy. And Elsa looks like Rosalina... Does this mean what I think it means? Are Daisy and Rosalina sisters after all? - Randomator

38 Princess Atta

Though only a princess, Atta is a leader, too. She makes all the tough decisions in the movie and her promotion to Queen in the end is well earned. - SourNote2014
