HERE'S TO THE STRONG WOMEN! MAY WE KNOW THEM! MAY WE BE THEM! MAY WE RAISE THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

"Somebody has to save our skins", Leia said as she effortlessly made three Star Wars icons jump into a garbage chute. So yeah, I think you get a pretty good idea on how high her badass-level is, oh and that was after having to endure an hour of torture from Vader (her birth father as it turns out) plus having to watch her entire home planet getting blown up. Preach for Leia, the princess, rebel, general and icon of all the icons!

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.

The strongest women i’ve ever seen. Just 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) 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) Katniss Everdeen (Hunger Games) Katniss Everdeen is a fictional character and the protagonist of The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. She is portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence in the film adaptation franchise.

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

Katniss has no personality or emotion whatsoever, there is no real character development with her and that bothers me a lot. ALSO, PRESIDENT SNOW IS AN ASS! - 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

17 Lucy (Lucy)

SHE IS ONLY BADASS BECAUSE SHE GOT DRUGGED! - missyweirdo

Why is this on the list? I'm sorry Lucy fans, but she is only bad ass because of the drug that those asses gave her, she is not naturally bad ass she is not even technically human anymore she would not be a bad ass bitch if it weren't for the powers and all. She it pretty much cursed and she got bad luck because of the people that captured her. Plus, she was kind of a bitch in the movies, she was just a robot who transferred information. That's it. Enough said folks. -missyweirdo - missyweirdo
