Most Badass Female Video Game Characters


The Top Ten

1 Samus Aran (Metroid) Samus Aran (Metroid) Samus Aran is the protagonist of the Metroid science fiction action-adventure game series by Nintendo.

Yeah I didn't know until Smash Bros Brawl campaign. - Lord28

I used to think she was a guy befor I saw she had breasts under her suit

2 Bayonetta (Bayonetta)
3 Commander Shepard (Mass Effect)
4 Jill Valentine (Resident Evil)

She is really good.

5 Faith Connors (Mirror's Edge)
6 Nariko (Heavenly Sword)
7 Chell (Portal)

Destroying an all-powerful AI to save yourself from an underground science laboratory only armed with a gun that makes portals (no bullets) all without having to say a word and keeping your clothes on which is (sadly) rare for female video game characters. Chell is the best!

8 Lara Croft (Tomb Raider) Lara Croft (Tomb Raider) Lara Croft is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Square Enix video game franchise Tomb Raider.

The first games on the PlayStation are my favorite games ever and even the newest ones are really good and Lara is a badass.

9 Alma (Ninja Gaiden)
10 Ellie (The Last of Us) Ellie (The Last of Us)

Should be top five at the least!

The Contenders

11 Blaze the Cat (Sonic the Hedgehog) Blaze the Cat (Sonic the Hedgehog)
12 Ashe (Final Fantasy XII)
13 Vela (Jet Force Gemini)
14 Elizabeth (BioShock Infinite)

She literally has the power to open portals or tears to other dimensions how is she not in the top 10

I can't believe she is 14 :/

15 EVA (Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater)

She's really good at what she does I mean serously she dang survived a frigging tree branch through her waist and her... I'm getting a bit of track she can hold her own and she's great with a motorbike but still

16 Alphys (Undertale) Alphys (Undertale) Alphys is an adorably dorky, lab-coat-wearing, bespectacled, yellow-skinned lizard scientist who resides in her lab in Hotland in the critically acclaimed cult classic RPG known as Undertale, wherein she partakes in the daily act of watching insane amounts of anime and having a vast majority of the more.


17 Madison Paige (Heavy Rain)
18 Sniper Wolf (Metal Gear Solid)

One of the coolest and most badass characters ever. Sniper Wolf for the win!

19 Lightning (Final Fantasy)
20 Undyne (Undertale) Undyne (Undertale) Undyne is a main character in Toby Fox's 2016 RPG, Undertale. She is the heroic fishlike captain of the Royal Guard, who takes it upon herself to protect the monsters of the Underground. Her name is derived from the word "Undine", and is a pun on the word "Undying". Her most loved monsters are her mentor, more.
