Most Badass Female Anime Characters

The Top Ten
Saeko Busujima - Highschool of the Dead

Definitely better than Rei

She's way better than Rei

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.

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.

Sorry, but I think Roberta deserves this spot more.

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 could dismembe everyone other one on this list easily. Sorry Erza

She is really badass I mean the way she fights!

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 more.

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!

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 more.

If you are taking about mikasa then let me tell you buddy she doesn't care who is against her wheneve r someone try to harm eren, eren is everything for mikasa

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!

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. more.

Erza is so badass that she won a fight without any of her senses and she unlocked that Nakagami armor which was said to take so much magical energy that nobody could uinlock it for 10 years and you're telling me she's at #5?

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

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

Ezra definitely deserves number 1 she would DIE for her friends

Android 18 - Dragon Ball

To be honest she's the most badass and perfect anime girl...she started as a killing machine, kicked ass of everyone in the future trunks timeline and killed them and in present timeline she wrecked ssj Vegeta easily but later she became so kind and a caring mom and wife she quitted martial arts so that she can look after her family but in the Tournament Of Power her performance was amazing if she trained hard she would've on God level now DBS didn't gave her enough screentime that's why she's less popular compared to some female anime characters. She is also beautiful and sexy and she don't have to expose her body to show how sexy she is and most importantly her attitude is the best she isn't annoying like other anime girls

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

Damn she is awesome

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.

Her attitude, loyalty, skill, and bravery are unmatched

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

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 more.

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.

How is she below Android 18?

Yoruichi Shihōin - Bleach Yoruichi Shihoin is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

The Flash Goddess! enough said.

Best Bleach girl!

The Contenders
Annie Leonhart - Attack on Titan Annie Leonhart 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 did a good job in kicking Eren's a$$.

Badass, hot, cold and beautiful
just perfect

Just love her

Strong and independant

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.

Favorite madoka magica character

She saved her friend Sayaka! She is so beautiful,and I would rather call her princess of flowers,leader of the Magical Girl!

She should not be here!

need I say more? Yes? Fine...

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 more.
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!

Seras victoria used to be a human in episode 1

Goddes. better than all females.

One of my favorite female anime characters she is so badass when it comes to killing zombies and vampires

Casca - Berserk

I wish she would recover so that she can be a badass,again...

Esdeath - Akame Ga Kill! General Esdeath (simply known as Esdeath) is the secondary antagonist of the manga, Akame Ga Kill!, and the 2014 anime adaptation of the same name.

The owner of the strongest Imperial Arms, she can manipulate ice and even froze time. She's dominant, she's the best and the reason why I watch Akame Ga Kill

If she is the best and strongest akame ga kill character? how come she lost and got played by Akame (the real strongest and best character)

Absolutely greatest chracter of Akame ga Kill and one of the best and most badass female anime chracters ever! All hail the ice queen!

She is the best Akame ga Kill character by far.

Kallen Stadtfeld - Code Geass Kallen Stadtfeld is a fictional character in the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

Without her, Black Knights would've been annihilated.

Guren mk II is awesome

Rukia Kuchiki - Bleach

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.

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

Videl - Dragon Ball Z Videl is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.
Nanoha Takamachi - Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha

The Puella Magis have nothing on her.

Why isn't she #1?

Asuka Langley - Evangelion

So badass in End of Evangelist.

Zangya - Dragon Ball Z Zangya is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.
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.

Signum Yagami - Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Signum is a female fictional character that made her debut in the 2005 Japanese animated series Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's.

Absolutely sexy and absolutely manly at the same time

Minene Uryu - Future Diary
