9 Trinity (Matrix series)

Her amazing comeback such as "Dodge this." Or "Touch me, and that hand will never touch anything again."

10 Marge Gunderson (Fargo)

The Contenders

11 Hit-Girl (Kick-Ass series) Hit-Girl (Kick-Ass series) Hit-Girl is a fictional character appearing in the Kick-Ass series, published by Marvel Comics under the company's imprint Icon Comics.

Most badass moment; this 11-year old girl appears at the bad guys' hideout in a schoolgirl outfit, and Enrico Morricone music starts playing in the background, so you feel it coming.
She calmly kills the 3 adult male guards, including an ice-cold finish shot.

12 Susan Cooper (Spy)
13 Clarice Starling (Silence of the Lambs)

Why Clarice is #62 in this list. She should be hightest rank in this list. She can beat a serial killer who skins his victims, confront another serial killer without lost her insanity and she's so smart and she have a tragical past of her life. She's the most badass female character.

14 Alice (Resident Evil series)

That was a good one

15 Elizabeth Sherman (Hellboy II)
16 April O'Neil (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
17 Leeloo (The Fifth Element)
18 Miho (Sin City)

Very cool film and Miho is really a badass!

19 Imperator Furiosa (Mad Max: Fury Road) Imperator Furiosa (Mad Max: Fury Road) V 1 Comment
20 Mikaela Banes (Transformers)

She may be eye candy, but she's useful eye candy. She rescued Sam and herself from the Secret Service, repaired Bumblebee mid-battle so he could fight, actively went undercover to infiltrate someplace, and saved Sam from a Pretender by ramming into it with her car.

I'll give Carly for standing up to Megatron, but that's pretty much all she was good for. - SourNote2014

Sorry about the Ninja Turtles item, it should be April O'Neil not just Megan Fox.
