Top Ten Best Video Game Girls

A Mario character? A Zelda character? A Final Fantasy character?
You decide!

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.

I just don't get why is Zelda No. 1? For one, she is usually your typical damsel-in-distress (Don't go mad, I do like Zelda). I know she is a pretty good helper, but then again, I see flaws in her. Probably why is she No. 1 is that she is in arguably the greatest video game series ever which makes no sense at all. It's also irritating that Link X Zelda is the most popular couple in the Zelda Universe and it's probably due to the Hero Saving Princess cliche. Link X Zelda (Twilight Princess Version) is possibly the worst couple because Link barely had any interaction with her aside from the "main mission". I mean, there's so many better choices like Saria, Malon, Midna and Ilia and in the end, the most popular is still the Princess. I do like Zelda, but she is far from the best female character in gaming.

Now why is Samus No. 1 for me? Most people here often say this character is super hot and super sexy. Granted, but it isn't really a huge point. Samus is pretty hot in ...more - hussaintalib

Samus should be number 1 she is the best bounty hunter in the whole universe I mean really samus definitely number one!

Bad@$$ AWESOME shes hands-down the most kick @$$ girl in gaming

She's Awesome - JPK

2 Princess Peach (Super Mario) Princess Peach (Super Mario) Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is usually the character who needs saved in most Mario Games, but also has appeared as a playable character in the Main-Series Mario Games, including Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Run, and even starred in ...read more.

In Super Princess Peach she saves Mario

Who ever said "How dare you say Princess Peach is awesome. She sucks! " IS GONNA NEED A GOOD BEAT UP WITH A SPIKED BOXING GLOVE

She stinks. Rosalina and Zelda are better. At least they can defend themselves!

All princess peach lovers go to heaven

3 Zelda (The Legend of Zelda)

She gives you the light arrows to kill Ganon and unlike Peach, actually helps you in your battles.

Shes very helpful great to play as in Brawl too

Shes really helpful and a great fighter in brawl

My fave Zelda is Skyward sword.

4 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.

Lara Croft is the greatest female video game character of all time! (Right up there with Samus Aran. ) I just ugh SHE IS SO HOT!

Shes really what I call awesome and bad@$$ to

Portrayed by Angelina Jolie in the 2001 family approved feature film of the same name. - playstationfan66

She is the best

5 Princess Daisy (Super Mario) Princess 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. ...read more.

Why does Daisy get so much hate? She is my favorite character and is the BEST! She is perfect for Luigi and actually has a personality. She can actually take care of herself. I don't care what haters say! Daisy is the best! She is loud and fun and her reaction to Waluigi is FLAWLESS!

You have to feel bad for her! She gets the most hate of any Mario girl she almost got removed by the new top video game girl rosalina and sheis the character Nintendo gives most hate to in the Mario franchise heck ign gave Her a 3/10 very bad score! Heck they had mii be higher then poor Daisy!

Peach and Birdo are more hated than her and IGN gave her 4/10 but she has a lot of undeserved hate. - DaisyandRosalina

I LOVE Daisy, I believe anyone who would hate Super Mario girls when they are like regular girls, only their cartoon.

Love Daisy, she's prettier, and generally has a better personality than Peach.

6 Tifa (Final Fantasy VII)

The girl who broke many stereotype qualities as a character.

Why is she below the most degrading female character in gaming and her yellow recolor?

My in-game love interest.

My favorite girl in video game ever!

7 Nina Williams (Tekken) Nina Williams (Tekken) Nina Williams is a fictional character from Namco's Tekken fighting game series. A cold-blooded Irish professional assassin, Nina made her first appearance in Tekken, the original game in the series She is one of four playable characters to appear in all main installments in the series and the only ...read more.

My no. 1 Tekken's blonde assassin

NINA'S A TEKKEN LEGEND WHY IS SHE SO LOW ON THE LIST?!

So dang hot

8 Jill Valentine (Resident Evil) Jill Valentine (Resident Evil)

Jill is the hotest girl in video games

9 Chun-Li (Street Fighter) Chun-Li (Street Fighter)
10 Claire Redfield (Resident Evil) Claire Redfield (Resident Evil)

Are you serious!? Why is she so low? All Resident Evil females are badass and hot (except Rebecca Chambers sorry but I just don't like her). Why is there so much Lara Croft fans? She's not even that hot compared to other video game characters. Lilli from Tekken?! Honestly!? All other Tekken females are better than her. Claire Redfield's my favourite female in gaming history and she deserves #1. - DunnaNunnaBatman

Claire is really hot

The Newcomers

? Senua (Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice)

The Contenders

11 Yuna (Final Fantasy X) Yuna (Final Fantasy X) Yuna is a fictional character from Square Enix's Final Fantasy series. She was first introduced as the female protagonist and one of the main playable characters of the 2001 role-playing video game Final Fantasy X, appearing as a summoner embarking on a journey to defeat the world-threatening monster ...read more.

The amount of dedication that she puts into the imminent death of her pilgrimage should put her in the top three. The overwhelming connection and emotion between Yuna and Tidus created one of the greatest loves in any video game.

She is really a great asset to the team and she's really kind and helpful - Toucan

She is the best in the videogame history of all time and She is so hot and sexy. She is so beautiful!

Beautiful!

12 Rouge (Sonic the Hedgehog)

She's from what I believe to be the greatest franchise ever. And she's a complete badass, enough said.

If it weren't for her lecherous fanbase, she would be better, but unfortunately...

As long as the whole Shadow vs. Knuckles shipping war with her is put to rest, anyway.

13 Cammy White (Street Fighter Series) Cammy White (Street Fighter Series) Cammy White, also known as Cammy and the codename Killer Bee in Street Fighter Alpha 3, is a video game character in the Street Fighter fighting game series and the second female fighter to appear in the series, after Chun-Li.

The best girl CAPCOM ever made was her shes total awesome

Shes my favorite character from Fighting Games and Moveset is great

14 Rosalina (Super Mario) Rosalina (Super Mario) Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She first appeared in the popular Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy in 2007 for the Nintendo Wii and later returned for the game's sequel in 2010 . Since then, she has been featured in many main-series Mario Games ...read more.

She should be ranked top 1. She is nice, confident & capable of herself. She is certainly more mild-mannered than Princess Peach, that bossy pest!

Also, the only place Rosalina went to in the Real World so far was Greater Vancouver.

She's the true Ms. Galaxy from the Mario series!

Lemme get this straight... ROSALINA had to be added by someone?! WHAT THE HECK?!?! She's better than Peach and Daisy! - randomuser2525

She's the Mario equivalent to God

15 Ellie (The Last of Us) Ellie (The Last of Us)

Unlike a lot of "classic" video game characters, Ellie is not a pair of boobs in a tight outfit shooting guns, nor is she an annoying damsel in distress. Ellie's a normal kid that's super funny, clever, and totally bring the much-needed light to the Last of Us. She's one of the toughest and most capable side kicks out there, even though she's only fourteen. And even though she's sarcastic all the time, has a foul mouth, and has to kill to survive, she represents the only shreds of hopefulness and light left in her sad world. The characters in the last of us have more depth than any other game.

She is a 14 year old kid in a gruesome and bloody world. She's seen things. She's felt emotions no one should feel. She's done bad things too...
The amount of character development she goes through is crazy. The Last Of Us was an amazing game, and this was an amazing character

Such an inspirational character. She is so young, yet so brave and strong. Neither a hot chick or a damsel in distress. A little child that bares with so much pain and not even once she ranted or complained. I love her.

Funny, cute, useful, badass, and the character that the main plot revolves around. What more could you want in a girl?

16 Trish (Devil May Cry)

This woman is very, very gorgeous and magnificent she's hotter if you look her up. Once you do your mind will be blown! I promise!

17 Catwoman (Batman: Arkham City) Catwoman (Batman: Arkham City) Catwoman is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly in association with the superhero Batman.

18 Skylar Saint Claire (The Saboteur) Skylar Saint Claire (The Saboteur)

A posh British blonde bombshell that's worthy of the #1 spot against those slags ahead of her.

19 Sonya Blade (Mortal Kombat) Sonya Blade (Mortal Kombat) Sonya Blade is a video game character from the Mortal Kombat series. Debuting in the original Mortal Kombat game from 1992, she was a late addition to the game as developers decided deep into the development cycle that the game needed a female character.

I think shes a better female then Kitana she has the best gameplay out of every character

I think shes a better female then Kitana and really fun to as

Sonya Blade kinda sucks. She's really not that good of a fighter and her fatalities in mortal kombat 9 and X sucks too. - Chaotixhero

The Beautiful Main Heroine of FFVII is an unforgettable character.

21 Lili de Rochefort (Tekken) Lili de Rochefort (Tekken) Emilie De Rochefort, better known under her nickname, Lili, was introduced in Tekken 5 : Dark Resurrection and has returned for all subsequent titles. When she debuted, Lili was described as a rich shallow girl from Monaco, who uses her skills in dance to fight in her own street fighting style. Lili ...read more.

I think shes the best Tekken female and shes my best character

My favorite Tekken character is her and gameplay is awesome

Best of the Best huh? "I don't think so since at the start
JIN IS MY ENEMY, AND THE VERY OWN (that's why I voted here)
LILI's the best (a.K.A. ) EMILY ROCHEFORT IT IS MY ALL TIME GREATEST AND STRONGEST CHARACTER I'VE ALWAYS VOTE FOR. " HEIL! - Otto_von_Alexander

I have ten good reasons to love her because she is exquisite and sexy. Thousand times more sexy than Christie Monteiro.

22 Amy Rose (Sonic the Hedgehog) Amy Rose (Sonic the Hedgehog)
23 Nariko (Heavenly Sword) Nariko (Heavenly Sword)

Since then, Kitana appeared in a majority of Mortal Kombat series' video games and its other media, including the films ...read more.
26 Blaze the Cat (Sonic the Hedgehog) Blaze the Cat (Sonic the Hedgehog)

Guys, do you not realize that Blaze the Cat can actually fight? Peach and Daisy are just playable in the spinoffs such as the Mario Party and Mario Kart games, but Blaze is playable in main series titles such as Sonic Rush (main character) and Sonic (2006)(sidekick to Silver)! For those of you that voted Peach and Daisy, you have no idea just how much useful Blaze is!

Wait, why is Blaze not number 1? She kicks @$$! Unlike Princess Elise, she cares for her friends. Also, remember the princess-in-distress stereotype. Blaze is a princess but unlike other princesses, she has never been captured. Sega didn't even bring about that stereotype while making her, and I hope it staysthat way. Sega, thanks for an awesome female character who everyone loves. - TheSonicFanGirl

One of the most original and awesome sonic females ever. She deserves to be in the top 3 because she kicks Egg. She can also control fire and is purple!

She is awesome and is one of the very few Sonic characters introduced in the 2000's that I can appreciate.

31 Elsa Lichtmann (L.A. Noire)
32 Shaundi (Saints Row)

A hot weed smoking gangster chick with witty comments what's not to like

I love how she went from rags to riches! Shaundi, the protagonist, and kinzie are my favorite saints row girls!

42 Starlow (Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story)
43 Bayonetta (Bayonetta)
44 Ling Xiaoyu (Tekken) Ling Xiaoyu (Tekken)

My favourite Tekken charecter, she is so cute and her moves are awesome, especially her pheonix stance! They need to bring back her cartwheel, it was such a useful move, I can't believe they got rid of it!

45 Jade (Mortal Kombat) Jade (Mortal Kombat) Jade is a fictional character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game series by Midway Games. Debuting in 1993's Mortal Kombat II as an unplayable secret character who was a green palette swap of Kitana, Jade made her first playable appearance in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3.

48 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 ...read more.

I love Alphys. And even though she was annoyingly calling you after you meet her, it was kinda funny. "Kissy Cutie Mew New 2 isn't kissy or cutie. It's trash! "

In my opinion, she was easily the winner of the Alphys VS Undyne fanfic (and believe me, Undyne gave her a lot of competition).

Not only that, but she's also the reason why all of my other similarly great and underappreciated UT fanfics exist as well. - xandermartin98
