Smartest Anime Female Characters


The Top Ten

1 Queen Bulma Queen Bulma

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.

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 Mavis Vermillion 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.

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

She should number 1

3 Shiro (No Game No Life) Shiro (No Game No Life)

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 Nico Robin

Nico Robin is the best

She is the only one who can read poneglyphs.

Her hana hana no mi can easily kills opponent. Crush necks, break bones, and spying.

5 Levy Mcgarden 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.

I like her look she has a bold and brave look

I love you :3

6 Retsu Unohana Retsu Unohana
7 Lucy Heartfilia 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 more.

Lucy is not smart enough to be in the top ten. - Goku02

Mah slay queen

Lmao she's higher than Erza.

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

8 Maka Albarn Maka Albarn
9 Nanao Ise Nanao Ise

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 Erza Scarlet 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 friends' calls that they want 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. - Goku02

She isn't smart.

She's not really smart, Maka still smarter - parisinslame

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

The Contenders

11 Yoruichi Shihoin Yoruichi Shihoin
12 Nami 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.

Smartest girl in OP

13 Sakura Haruno 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's just book smart. Other than that, Sakura is relatively stupid. - Goku02

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

14 Misora Naomi Misora Naomi

Yeah she's very clever and smart. - Goku02

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.

15 Android 18 Android 18

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

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. - Goku02

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

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

16 Jun the Swan Jun the Swan

Who the hell is this.? Is she even smart? - ErzaScarlet

17 Akane Tsunemori (Psycho-Pass) 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.

18 Kyoko Kirigiri Kyoko Kirigiri

The Ultimate Detective

Kiri is so awesome and smart 😊 - Absolite

19 Lal Mirch Lal Mirch

She is an incomplete acrobellano and a former COMSUBIN boss and olso a CEFED member. In the future, comes off as a no-nonsense type of person.

20 Asuna Yuuki Asuna Yuuki Asuna Yuuki is a fictional character who appears in the Sword Art Online series of light novels by Reki Kawahara.
