Top 10 Best Female Badasses in Movies


The Top Ten

1 Princess Leia (Star Wars Series) Princess Leia (Star Wars Series) Princess Leia Organa, later known as General Leia Organa, is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Carrie Fisher.

She rescued Han Solo, She killed Jabba The Hutt, she is feisty, sassy, savvy, and strong. She makes sure she gets her way and she does not take crap from anybody, she knows what she is doing, this is a princess you cannot mess with!

Just watch the movie. She is the best.

2 Ellen Ripley (Alien Series) Ellen Ripley (Alien Series) Ellen Louise Ripley is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Alien film series played by American actress Sigourney Weaver.

Natasha, Ripley, Furiosa, the Bride, Sarah, Trinity, Gamora, And Sattler should be above Katniss! The only reason why people call her bad ass is because of how popular those Overrated Shaky-cam exposed forgettable Hunger Games movies are! Natasha and Ripley have the respect that I've never given Katniss! But she always higher! When I've seen way better Female protagonists like Elsa and Sonya Blade that are a million times better than her!

3 Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) (Avengers Series)
4 The Bride (Uma Thurman) - Kill Bill The Bride (Uma Thurman) - Kill Bill Uma Karuna Thurman is an American actress and model. She has performed in leading roles in a variety of films, ranging from romantic comedies and dramas to science fiction and action movies.
5 Katniss Everdeen (Hunger Games)

I am so sorry I forgot to add Tris from the Divergent Series! Whenever I try to add her it won't show up! She is way better than Katniss! I also forgot to add Mystique (Raven) from the X Men series and I forgot to add Joan Of Arc from the movie Joan Of Arc but that movie got pretty bad reviews so...but anyways I love you all and thanks for voting on my list and if I had to choose a favorite it would have to be Princess Leia! But I love Natasha and Ripley too! - missyweirdo

6 Hermione Granger (Emma Watson in Harry Potter) Hermione Granger (Emma Watson in Harry Potter)

I added this for the potterheads (I am not really a harry potter fan myself so yes call me a muggle). But may I just say, yes she is extremely intelligent and super helpful and she punched Draco in the nose (lol). But she's not entirely badass, I mean she has her weak moments. Like, when she cried at the Yull Ball, I personally thought she could've handled it better. And one time when she saw something sad she just put her arms around Ron, and this kinda bothers me because I compare her to katniss she never puts her arms around Peeta when she sees something sad, she stays strong and does not let her super sad side come out because she can tough it out on her own. And when Harry Potter was having his last battle with Voldermot when they were running she literally grabbed on to Ron and put her head on his chest or something like that while he was trying to kill that snake. Anyways, you know what I mean. Of course Hermione is badass but I don't think as much as The Bride or Katniss ...more - missyweirdo

7 Letty Ortiz (The Fast and the Furious Series)
8 Evelyn Salt (Salt)
9 Marian Ravenwood (Raiders of the Lost Ark)

*Marion and yes she needs to be higher on the list, don't ask just watch the movie - missyweirdo

10 Lisbeth Salander (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo)

The Contenders

11 Sarah Connor (Terminator Franchise)
12 Mulan (Mulan)

First appearing as the central character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey is a scavenger who was left behind on the planet Jakku when she was a child, and later becomes involved with the Resistance's more.

She learned the force faster than Luke Skywalker and she is an excellent pilot, and she is an underdog. This chick could not get any better! - missyweirdo

19 Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) - Kick Ass

She would kick Katniss's butt any day! - missyweirdo
