Top Ten Female Anime Characters


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 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.

The best girl in anime yes she is 😍, very strong and beautiful girl... love her so much❤

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

As a Hinata can, it's a shame she was barely shown during the Anime/Manga. Secondary characters tend to be neglected. - Nitrom123

A true heroine. Overcame her shyness and truly accomplished her dream

She is a great wife, and a great mother - gingin_27

Hinata is sooo beautiful, lovely, kind, strong and so on! I love her! I want her to be in the top!

3 Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail

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!

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

Best female character ever!

She should be number 1
What an amazing character

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.

5 Riza Hawkeye - Fullmetal Alchemist Riza Hawkeye - Fullmetal Alchemist

She's so cool and strong.

Most badass female ever

Beautiful, Badass, Independant, Strong = Riza Hawkeye

Psst. don't mess with her unless you want 100 bullets

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

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

Beautiful, strong, independent and smart.

Best anime heroine created to be honest.

8 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. An amateur surgeon and mechanical repair specialist/enthusiast, more.

My gorgeous queen!

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

9 Kagome Higurashi - Inyuasha Kagome Higurashi - Inyuasha

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

10 Saber - Fate/Stay Night Saber - Fate/Stay Night Saber is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon and its prequel, Fate/Zero, by Type-Moon and nitroplus. She is the the Saber-class Servant of Kiritsugu Emiya during the Fourth Holy Grail War in Fate/Zero and the Saber-class Servant of Shirou more.

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

The Newcomers

? Ino Yamanaka - Naruto Ino Yamanaka - Naruto

The Contenders

11 Revy - Black Lagoon Revy - Black Lagoon

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!

12 Maka Albarn - Soul Eater Maka Albarn - Soul Eater

She was genuinely fun to watch - Blueberrypie

13 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.

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

The same could be said of nearly everyone though. They would be dead without Luffy, Zoro and Sanji too at least. Hell Nami would be dead a long time ago without Luffy and Sanji. - Annabelle6

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

Best. Character. Ever.

14 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

Is Kiritos love interest. Best girl anime for sure... very strong independant girl fearless and yet sensitive sweet and very confusing. Beautiful and knows what she wants in my opinion she is for sure should be in the top 5 best anime girls in the world.
i enjoy watching this show mostly because of asuna.

15 Sakura Haruno - Naruto Sakura Haruno - Naruto Sakura Haruno is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

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

She is just an ugly damsel in naruto.

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.

She isn't useless people. I hate the fact that people just see her by her childhood. I mean look at her now! She's beautiful and strong. With who you compare her, eh? With hinata? Or ino? I know hinata has her byakugan and 64 palm or whatever it is and ino has her mind body switch technique or whatever it is but hey, it's because of their family thing. Well I don't think haruno clan have their special ninjutsu. So understand it.😁
