Most Badass Female Anime Characters

The Top Ten
1 Saeko Busujima - Highschool of the Dead
2 Revy - Black Lagoon Rebecca Lee, mainly referred to as Revy, and sometimes Two Hands, is the main female protagonist of the Black Lagoon series.

Overall, the ten I picked here was an excrutiatingly difficult decision; there are so many elligible female badasses! But I have NO doubt that Revy is #1. She has spunk, bullets, and is almost undefeatable when it comes to gun standoffs. Saeko has NOTHING on her.

Everything about Revy screams Badass. She's the best gun user in anime in my opinion and she's undefeatable but not ridiculously overpowered either.

Revy is tthee best bounty hunter ever! She's very badass! I'm so sad that the anime is so short. I would watch it for years if Revy was there with her crew!

She is one of the few female characters I like in anime.

3 Mikasa Ackerman - Attack on Titan Mikasa Ackerman is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama. She accompanies the main protagonist Eren Jaeger. Her most notable feature is the red scarf that she wears. She is one of the most strongest characters in the Attack on Titan franchise.

There's a difference between being a badass and being an overpowered Mary su. Mikasa is the latter.

She is number 1! she's the biggest female badass ever!

Number 43? Come on, she should be higher on the list!

She is the definition of badass...!

4 Lucy - Elfen Lied

Don't even think about voting until you at least Google "lucy gun". Then tell me what a badass chick looks like.

I'm pretty sure that she can slice up ever other girl on this list (no offense).

She is really badass I mean the way she fights!

Lucy is my girl. She is a badass.

5 Android 18 - Dragon Ball

Most badass and strongest anime girl ever. Android #18 rocks.

Damn she is awesome

6 Motoko Kusanagi - Ghost in the Shell Major Motoko Kusanagi is the main protagonist in Masamune Shirow's Ghost in the Shell anime and manga series. She is a "full-body prosthesis" augmented-cybernetic human employed as the field commander of Public Security Section 9, a fictional law-enforcement division of the Japanese National Public Safety Commission. Being strong-willed, physically powerful, and highly intellectual, she is well known for her skills in deduction and hacking.

How low she is is really disappointing, considering it's MOTOKO we're talking about here! I don't think any anime fan can deny her badassery.

Finally an anime list on this site in which the top item totally deserves the spot!

7 Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail Erza Scarlet is an S-Class Mage from the infamous magic guild Fairy Tail. Erza starts off as a lone wolf and stays loyal to following the rules. As the story develops Erza changes into loving mage strong and independent. As her terrible past haunts her she ignores her Nakama's calls that they want help. Erza's past starts with her working to build the dangerous tower called the Tower of Heaven also known as the R-System. Meant to resurrect Lord Zeref the evil Dark Wizard. Erza is taken back to the nightmares that she tried to run away from but failed because of her old friends holding her hostage. Having no choice but to risk her life for her Nakama she tried to fuse her body with a lacrima more.

Erza is an incredible wizard, capable of many great things! I think she deserves to be at least top 3

Not many people in Fairy Tail are badass but Erza is an exception.

She should be the best female in anime and in shonen because she is the best female in anime and th most badass.

What would Fairy tail be without the essence of Titania?

8 Saber - Fate Stay Night Saber is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon and its prequel, Fate/Zero, by Type-Moon and nitroplus. She is the the Saber-class Servant of Kiritsugu Emiya during the Fourth Holy Grail War in Fate/Zero and the Saber-class Servant of Shirou Emiya during the Fifth Holy Grail War in Fate/stay Night. She is the main heroine of the Fate route. Her true identity is Arturia Pendragon, as her character is inspired by the legends of King Arthur.

To be honest, I think Saber is more badass and more strong than Asuna. I still love Asuna, but I think Saber would beat her by a mile in a fight.

Saber is more badass than Erza in my opinion.

How is she below Android 18?

9 Yoruichi Shihōin - Bleach Yoruichi Shihoin is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.
10 Riza Hawkeye - Fullmetal Alchemist Riza Hawkeye is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

This woman has about twenty pistols and is will not hesitate to pull the trigger. She has even held her superior officer (and love interest) at gunpoint because he was losing sight of his goal and turning dark.

Her attitude, her intelligence, her badass aim, her sexy hair and calmness, and overall, her back tattoo-- what taught Roy flame alchemy-- makes her amazing.

Oh, I love Riza. Easily the most badass FA female.

The Contenders
11 Kyoko Sakura - Puella Magi Madoka Magica Kyoko Sakura is a fictional character from the 2011 anime series Puella Magi Madoka Magica and its related media.

She should not be here!

12 Seras Victoria - Hellsing Seras Victoria is a fictional character in the Hellsing manga and anime series created by Kouta Hirano.

She should be at least top ten. She's strong, determined, and caring. She's a badass! And I love her guns!

13 Faye Valentine - Cowboy Bebop Faye Valentine is a fictional character from Cowboy Bebop who first appeared in the third episode Honky Tonk Woman who was a wanted bounty head who later joined the bounty hunter group along with Spike and Jet, she's arrogant, opportunistic, grumpy and lazy and despite her appearance she's actually 77 years old following an tragic accident that claimed both her parents Faye was severely injured and was cryogenically frozen until a cure was found for her condition.
14 Rukia Kuchiki - Bleach

Why is she so low? Rukia is the best anime female character and a total badass! Love you Rukia.

The only reason why I read Bleach 'till the end. Long live Queen Rukia

she's cool and not the the crybaby damsel in distress.she's funny and cares about her friends I wish she ended up with ichigo, one of the reasons I re live the moments and watch bleach is because of RUKIA.

21 Fate Testarossa - Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha

Probably the most badass magical girl I've come across (even against the likes of the Sailor Moon gang or even Kyoko!). Anyway, she's great.

22 Ryuko Matoi - Kill la Kill Ryuko Matoi is the main protagonist of Japanese anime series 'Kill La Kill' produced by Studio Trigger. Ryuko Matoi is a highschool student who attends Honnouji Academy to find her father's murderer.
