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) Bayonetta (Bayonetta) Bayonetta, real name Cereza, is a fictional character and protagonist of the video game Bayonetta and its sequel, developed by PlatinumGames and published by Sega and Nintendo respectively.

She took down monsters that could have squashed her like a bug! How much more badass can she get than that? - deltanine

She also killed god

Nice woman...

3 Jill Valentine (Resident Evil)

She is really good.

4 Faith Connors (Mirror's Edge)
5 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!

6 Daisy (Super Mario) Daisy (Super Mario) Princess Daisy is a fictional character in the Mario series of video games, in which she is the princess of the fictional region of Sarasaland.

Very - ParkerFang

She's badass B)

7 Lightning (Final Fantasy)
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.

She actually completed went through an entire island killing crazy fanatics armed with guns with only a BOW AND ARROW! Not to mention thst just hours ago, she was impaled by a rusty metal rod though the abdomen. She deserves a spot at least in the top 3.

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

Should be top five at the least!
