Top 10 Most Badass Female Anime CharactersThese characters are not just the standard damsels in distress, waiting to be rescued. No, they are the warriors, the strategists, the leaders, the protectors, and the rebels. They are the ones who have portrayed a plethora of emotions and have been a beacon of strength and inspiration, not just for other characters in their respective series but also for us, the spectators, who look up to them. From mystical magical girls who take on the world with their enchanted abilities to high-flying mecha pilots who redefine bravery, to the witty and strong-willed everyday girls who tackle life’s challenges with grit and humor - these characters emanate an aura of badassery that's hard to match.
Overall, the ten I picked here were an excruciatingly difficult decision. There are so many eligible 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 the 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!
There's a difference between being a badass and being an overpowered Mary Sue. 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!
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 every other girl on this list (no offense).
She is really badass. I mean, the way she fights!
Most badass and strongest anime girl ever. Android #18 rocks.
Damn, she is awesome.
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!
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 the most badass.
To be honest, I think Saber is more badass and stronger 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?
This woman has about twenty pistols and 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--which taught Roy flame alchemy--makes her amazing.
Oh, I love Riza. Easily the most badass FMA female.
She should be at least in the top ten. She's strong, determined, and caring. She's a badass! And I love her guns!
She should not be here!
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!
Rukia is my bae.
She did a good job kicking Eren's ass.
Her silver ring.
Just love her.
So badass in End of Evangelion.
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.
She's a real beast
I totally agree with you!
