The Top Ten

1 Mikasa Ackerman - Attack on Titan Mikasa Ackerman - Attack on Titan Mikasa Ackerman is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama. She accompanies the main protagonist Eren Jaeger. Her most notable feature is the red scarf that she wears. She is one of the most strongest ...read more.

She is so strong and her single minded obsession of Eren's well being is something that makes her my favourite character on the anime.

I love Mikasa. She's very pretty and she's one of the best with the titan killing equipment. She's my favorite character in the show. Yes, she's a bit overprotective of Eren, but it's only because he's the only family she's got left, so I can kinda understand.

I just love her. She protects, she attacks, she is strong and smart.

I just find her amazing

2 Hinata Hyuga - Naruto Hinata Hyuga - Naruto Hinata Hyuga is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

I really love her character, especially her development.

Her struggle throughout the series taught me a valuable lesson about how true strength really is. Maybe she is weaker than many other fellows, her trying deserves an acknowledgement from everyone (including Naruto for sure).

Sacrifice, trying hard without feedback, just to advance, to overcome her own hindrances, to catch up with her love also her source of inspiration, I totally don't understand what people mean to say she is a terrible character. Because for me, she's for sure an amazing female character I've ever seen in any types of anime I've read.

She's so kind and brave. She was the first one to understand and acknowledge a guy who everyone thought was a village monster. It shows how big her heart is. She is now a sweet caring mother to her kids and has come so far overcoming her difficult childhood and anxiety

No you don't understand. I can't even explain how much I love Hinata. She represents everything a good shinobi is. She is hardworking, has a strong resolve, doesn't think twice when it comes to protecting the ones she loves when they are in danger. She is extremely courageous and no matter how difficult the fight even when there is no hope she will never run.
To round it all up, she is the sweetest and nicest person after all the hatred she faced from her clan there was no hatred in her heart and she always persisted.
Hinata is the only one who acknowledged Naruto when he was called a monster by everyone. She deserves a lot of love.

Best girl

3 Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail Erza Scarlet is an S-Class Mage from the infamous magic guild Fairy Tail. Erza starts off as a lone wolf and stays loyal to following the rules. As the story develops Erza changes into loving mage strong and independent. As her terrible past haunts her she ignores her Nakama's calls that they want help. ...read more.

She is the epitome of female characters and her strength, both mentally and physically, develops to make her a great person

Best character ever! Strong, caring, beautiful and totally not useless. Funny while being strict and helpful, a great leader and a true comrade, friend and family. Never underestimate the Titania!

Best female character ever!

Useless

4 Bulma - Dragon Ball/Z/GT/Super Bulma - Dragon Ball/Z/GT/Super Bulma is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. Bulma is the most significant female character in the series.

Bulma ROCKS! She's so intelligent and loveable! Go Bulma! - Goku02

She deserves number one. - Goku02

How is Bulma not in the top 5's? She is super smart and pretty! She and Beerus were always my favorite characters. And without her, Gohan and Krillin wouldn't have made it to Namek. Think about it: If they went to Namek in the same ship that Goku did, Goku wouldn't have been able to train in 100x gravity, so he wouldn't have ever been able to defeat Frieza.

Slutty piece of useless trash

5 Riza Hawkeye - Fullmetal Alchemist Riza Hawkeye - Fullmetal Alchemist Riza Hawkeye is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

She's so cool and strong.

Most badass female ever

Beautiful, Badass, Independant, Strong = Riza Hawkeye

BADASS

7 Rukia Kuchiki - Bleach Rukia Kuchiki - Bleach

Rukia rocks! She and yoruichi are the best girls on bleach. Plus she needs more credit after all she is the one who made ichigo who he is today. And she is not a crybaby or a weakling. She's actually awesome and brave and I just don't see how sakura is in higher on the list rukia should at least be in the top ten

Beautiful, strong, independent and smart.

She might not have the curves like most bleach girls do...but she has her own beauty and strength that I like!

SHE DESERVE TO BE IN THE TOP 5. NO TOP 3!

Saber should be number 1

Hot and cool at the same time. Best anime female.

9 Winry Rockbell - Fullmetal Alchemist Winry Rockbell - Fullmetal Alchemist Winry Rockbell is a main supporting character of the Fullmetal Alchemist series. A close childhood friend of Edward and Alphonse Elric since their young life in Resembool, she is almost like a sister to the two and essentially their only family.

My gorgeous queen!

How many Girl mechanics do you know!? That can repair automail!

10 Nami - One Piece Nami - One Piece Nami is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. She is based on Ann and Silk, two characters from Oda's previous manga Romance Dawn.

Nami is way too high for such a weak and manipulative character.

Without her OP probably won't make it to this point as the 2 strongest members had no sense of the direction and the rest don't have enough knowledge in weather and navigating ( maybe except robin and franky? ), they've probably sunk back at the red line

Urgh I can't stand her

YES. The best of the best.

The Contenders

11 Revy - Black Lagoon Revy - Black Lagoon Rebecca Lee, mainly referred to as Revy, and sometimes Two Hands, is the main female protagonist of the Black Lagoon series.

She is one person that you don't want to make angry. She has a very short temper and when you piss her off, she'll kill you without remorse or any second thoughts. But at the same time she's one of the main protagonists. She's a badass!

She’s most certainly my favorite out of this list, solely because despite the testorne drive the anime and manga is. Revy’s more then this sexy and alcoholic gunslinger that swears like a sailor. With my initial thoughts towards this character being that of a walking and talking male fantasy. Boy was I ever delighted to find by far one of the most complex and three demensional women in anime and manga. She sets the bar for anti-heroines and fictional women with grey morals and emotionally thought provoking depth within manga and anime. She’s a despicable human being at the end of the day, so say what you want about her. But she’s sure as hell iconic as she is deadly.

12 Kagome Higurashi - Inyuasha Kagome Higurashi - Inyuasha Kagome Higurashi is the main female protagonist of the anime/manga series Inuyasha, equaled only in importance by Inuyasha himself.

I'm glad that the anime fangirls don't hate her. She deserve one of the top 10. She learn many skills, you know.

She has her badass moments

This bitch is boring and shouldn't be on this list.

Overrated hypocritical whiny b***hy useless bimbo

13 Asuna - Sword Art Online Asuna - Sword Art Online

She is extremely cute and beautiful. Although she is also really strong and can be a badass sometimes

So strong, I totally understand kirito

The only female anime character better than her is Silica but she isn't on the list so I voted 4 Asuna

Just has a little tsundere

She isn’t afraid of anyone or anything and when she loves, she loves with a full heart. She will get rid of anyone or anything that’s in her way. Heart breaks don’t slow her down for long. Yuno Gasai is the right choice for everyone.

26 Homura Akemi - Puella Magi Madoka Magica Homura Akemi - Puella Magi Madoka Magica Homura Akemi is a fictional character from the 2011 anime series Puella Magi Madoka Magica and its related media.

She repeated time over and over again to save Madoka. It's a shame that in Rebellion, she became the devil. But she's still a great character. She's an awesome gunshooter and Is also athletic(as shown In episode 1). - MLPFan

27 Tsuyu Asui - My Hero Academia Tsuyu Asui - My Hero Academia
28 Konata Izumi - Lucky Star Konata Izumi - Lucky Star
29 Sakura Haruno - Naruto Sakura Haruno - Naruto Sakura Haruno is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

She is just an ugly damsel in naruto.

I enjoy the idea that she is a normal person like the rest of us. I can imagine talking to her and being friends. I like that she is more open about her feelings and that she loves her friends. It's nice to see someone with a normal life in Team 7 because if everyone had to get all emotional with their backstory it would get pretty depressing. In shonen it's almost like, "Oh, that person has a sad past we have to make him our favorite" and with Sakura it's like "She doesn't have a sad past she's awful! " I'm not saying that this is the only reason people hate her. People also say her love for Sassuke is simply an obsession and a "Notice Me Senpai" thing and she should die or that she is a useless chick who can only punch and heal, well face the facts people! Had it not been for Sakura many characters would have died. Also there's the fact that she doesn't return Naruto's love, well if you watch The Last she says that the only reason he had a crush on her was to compete with Sasuke and ...more

Sakura is by far the most underrated character on Naruto. She's strong, smart, fast, and she can heal almost any wound. Without her, Naruto would be dead; that alone says a lot. She has saved thousands of lives and the war would not have been won if she hadn't taken out nearly half of the enemies BY HERSELF. If you think Hinata is better, keep this in mind. In the war, Sakura killed thousands of enemies while savings thousands of her comrades. The only thing Hinata did was attempt to kill one enemy (she failed by the way) and scream "Naruto-KUN! " before tripping on a rock.

Useless pink trash wjo deseves to be downvoted. even Sasuke told sakura she can't do anything in the war and she had to be saved so many times by her teammates. While she was sitting there crying for naruto to help as usual hinata was actually there protecting him. And let's never forget she caused the tskuyomi because you guessed it she started CRYING again!. And her obssession with SASUKE KUN was beyond ridiculous...acts like a doortmat to him despite his countless rejections. she forces her feelings down his throat. If she was a boy she would be called a rapist and an abuser.
