Smartest Anime Female Characters

The Top Ten

1 Queen Bulma Bulma is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

Maker of time machines and technology can enhanced power levels. She was flying alien spacecrafts and making laser guns at the age of 5! She knows how to manipulate situations to her favor and has connections with Gods. Bulma is truly brilliant.

Yes Bulma is a genius. She created a shrinking machine(given to master Roshi) and the Dragon Radar.

I can't think of anything more complicated and damn near impossible to build than a time machine and this lady actually made more than one, in TWO separate timelines! GENIUS.

This list is COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS! Bulma created the time machine, Dragon Radar, the thing that shrink you to the size of a mouse, fixed alien spaceship, scouter, fixed #16, created the device to shut #17 & #18, … and many more. She created a laser gun and fixed a spaceship at the age of 5. L and Light might be considered the smartest, but it's just because the series they're in focuses on intelligence and deducting skills. Actually, Bulma's MUCH more intelligent and way smarter.
P.S.: She's NOT a queen.

2 Nami 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.

Navigation is a very complex and accurate science. She is a genius

Sorry but I think she's one of the most overrated characters

Nami smartest female character in One Piece

She's the second smart girl in OP and she is intellegent in science.

3 Shiro (No Game No Life)

She's only 11 but is insanely smart. Just imagine how intelligent she'll be in a few years

Hey she needs to be much higher than 13th. The only female that has a chance of surpassing her in intelligence is Bulma. - Goku02

Shiro is basically a logical genius who calculates everything, and she's only 11.

Can dodge bullets with only calculations, make the bullets look like they missed unintentionally, the wielder is a beast with incredible physical prowess

4 Nico Robin "Devil Child" Nico Robin is a fictional character of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

Smartest female character in one piece. I'm baffled Nami is higher than her. There's no doubt Robin has her beat.

She's so smart and always tries to learn new things. She's the most intelligent crew member

She knows more than anyone when it comes to history. She is also very observant.

Probably the smartest character in OP

5 Mavis Vermillion Mavis Vermilion is the first guild master of the infamous guild Fairy Tail. She started as a poor young girl with no parents and friends. She worked for the guild Red Salamander on Tenrou Island. Tenrou Island is also the island that belongs to the Fairy Tail guild where her grave is.

She lived in a Library on an island with nothing to do but read. She built the fairy tail guild and she knows how to stop a war. She's the smartest.

Not that smart. Pretty smart, yes, but doesn't deserve #2. - Goku02

She should number 1

She's by far the best

6 Retsu Unohana
7 Misora Naomi

A true pain I felt for her she was very much careful at that time but her innocent behaviour and kindness... alas:(

Yeah she's very clever and smart.

She figured out that Kira could kill not just by heart attack because of a bus jacking. If Kira/Light had not killed her, the story would have ended much sooner. Great FBI agent.

If light didn't meet her she'll definitely be important to the case

8 C.C. C.C. is the pseudonym of a fictional character in the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion anime series by Sunrise. C.C.'s real name is never shared with the audience, despite eventually being learned by protagonist Lelouch Lamperouge.
9 Nanao Ise Nanao Ise is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

I barely remember Bleach but the little that I haven't forgotten is that Nanao is incredibly smart. Maybe not Bulma-smart but still smart. I believe she's a clever fighter, too.

Nanao is the Co-lieutenat of the first division
-The vice president of the S.W.A
-head of the ise clan
-previous lieutenant of the 8th division
-Vice-President of the Shinigami Women's Association
The desk-work expert who takes care of the division's administrative matters on behalf of her captain, who hardly performs any normal tasks. She is a very serious and pragmatic person who often puts up with her captain's silly antics, Nanao is known to be an excellent calculator

10 Levy Mcgarden

She's nerdy, NOT intelligent. People like Bulma, not drowned in books all the time but still knows a lot and invent many, is intelligent.

She is smart, a bookworm, and amazing!

If I didn't wear glasses, had spiky blue hair, wore the same clothes, had the same eye color and voice, had the Fairy Tail emblem tattoo, and had magic, Levy and I would be the same person. Booksmart, but kind of a clutz.

I like her look she has a bold and brave look

The Contenders

11 Lucy Heartfilia Lucy Heartfilia is a wizard in the guild, Fairy Tail. Her magic is called celestial spirit magic which allows her to summon spirits from another world. She currently possesses fifteen celestial keys, which is an extraordinary number for a celestial mage. She gets along best with Team Natsu, containing ...read more.

Lucy is not smart enough to be in the top ten.

Mah slay queen

Lmao she's higher than Erza.

She's also number 4 on the dumbest female anime characters list...

She is super intelligent. Have you all forgot how Lucy found Mavis grave? I love her a lot. 😍😍😍

12 Maka Albarn Maka Albarn (マカ・アルバーン, Maka Arubān) is a Scythe-Meister and the daughter of Spirit Albarn and his ex-wife. After witnessing her father cheating, she was inspired by her mother and she became determined to follow in her footsteps and became a Meister. Maka partnered up with the "Demon ...read more.

I love Maka! She is a really smart. I feel like she should be higher up on this list tho...

13 Kurisu Makise

Hey! Kurisu is probably one of the smartest and mature female anime character! The thesis that she published at a tender age of 17 was critically acclaimed in the science community. Not only that, she also wrote about Time travel and time machines and made one in the future! What else can you expect? She’s my favorite!

14 Satsuki Kiryuin Satsuki Kiryuin is one of the antagonists from 'Kill La Kill', an anime series that ran from 2013-2014, created by Studio Trigger.

hi mom - HelloImDeadInside

15 Hange Zoë Hange Zoë 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.

The moment you realize the actual smart ones are at the bottom

She deserved to be on top 5 fighting and cracking the mysteries in AOT.

16 Yoruichi Shihoin Yoruichi Shihoin is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.
17 Android 18

She's extremely powerful, badass as well as beautiful, but her intelligence is just average. Her power isn't her intelligence, it's her strength that makes her so powerful. Bulma, on the other hand, is a genius-level inventor. Her brilliant mind is her power, which makes her one of the most important DBZ characters.

Examples please? Not hating but I don't remember her doing anything intelligent.

Don't ask awesome, genius, badass, pretty, loving, caring, good mother, excellent fighter. She is aewsome.

She's not that smart. She's just there.

18 Kyoko Kirigiri Kyoko Kirigiri, a character from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, is a student of Class 78 in Hope's Peak Academy, who also participates in Monokuma's Killing School Life. She is the Ultimate Detective.

The Ultimate Detective

Kirigiri is my favourite character and she's really smart - MLPFan

Why is she not higher

Obvs she’s the smartest like what you think best waifs and smartest around lol

19 Erza Scarlet 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.

Huh? She's powerful, badass and all but she isn't THAT smart. Pretty smart, yes, but nowhere near the smartest anime girl standard.

She isn't smart.

She's not really smart, Maka still smarter

She is a badass and awesome. Girls can be awesome too.

20 Konan (Naruto Shippuden)

I love Konan but her intelligence has never been really remarkable.

Shes kinda smart right

I love 💕konan because she is strong and pretty she is the onlyone female in aktsuki

21 Mikasa Ackerman 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.

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

Book smart. Her love interest is her downfall, always clouding her better judgement.

This obsessive wimp is one of the stupidest characters I've ever known.

She'sthe only ninja who pass chunin exams without cheating, they said that the questions were really hard for a genin to answer that everyone always cheat

Because the purpose of the test WAS to cheat. Plus, we don't know if any of her answers were right or not because that wasn't part of the test.

She's just book smart. Other than that, Sakura is relatively stupid.

24 Ritsu (Assassination Classroom)

Yay assassination classroom

Please tell me how tf Ritsu isn’t higher?

25 Akane Tsunemori (Psycho-Pass)

If you're looking for smart characters, you've got to dig into "smarter" anime such as Psycho-Pass, Terror in Resonance, Code Geass, Death Note... Akane is such a deep thinker and one of the characters with the most impressive development.
