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)

Nice woman...

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

She is really good.

5 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.

6 Faith Connors (Mirror's Edge)
7 Daisy (Super Mario) Daisy (Super Mario)

Very - ParkerFang

She's badass B)

8 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!

9 Lightning (Final Fantasy)
10 Nariko (Heavenly Sword)

The Contenders

11 Alma (Ninja Gaiden)
12 Ellie (The Last of Us) Ellie (The Last of Us)

Should be top five at the least!

13 Blaze the Cat (Sonic the Hedgehog) Blaze the Cat (Sonic the Hedgehog)
14 Kitana (Mortal Kombat series) Kitana (Mortal Kombat series)
15 Princess Zelda (The Legend of Zelda series) Princess Zelda (The Legend of Zelda series) Princess Zelda is a fictional character in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda video game series, created by Shigeru Miyamoto and introduced in its original entry in 1986.
16 Ashe (Final Fantasy XII)
17 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 :/

18 Vela (Jet Force Gemini)
19 Sniper Wolf (Metal Gear Solid)

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

20 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
