List of 15 Badass Female Characters in Anime and Manga

I always love anime and manga with strong female characters. That's why I would like to present you a list of female characters whom not only can seriously kick some ass but also have cool personality. Well, at least in my opinion ^^. Jeng..jeng..jeng...Here they are!

  • Mikasa Ackerman  (Shingeki No Kyojin)

I swooned over her since the first time I see her in 3D Manuvear Gear. She's a genius fighter with awesome skills, being the top graduate of 104 squad. She might be a little bit overprotective towards Eren, but she's cool, humble, level-headed, had a strong will and caring. Hence, I really like her.

  • Morgiana (Magi - The Labyrinth of Magic)

I'm a big fan of Morgiana. She's really awesome, strong yet gentle. Her fight moves is so cool, particularly the new way to use her Household Vessels.

  • Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail)

Fairy Tail most strongest woman. In my opinion, her requips magic is so beautiful.

  • Xiang Ying (Angel Heart)

Although it seems that Xiang Ying is not really popular among anime fans, but I really like her. An ex-assassins with code name Glass Heart. She's beautiful, deadly, but amusingly innocent.

  • Retsu Unohana (Bleach)

So gentle that it's scary
Unohana true nature
One of the badass female characters from Bleach. Master of healing technique, I like her from the start. I like her more after her past as the first Kenpanchi revealed. It's so contradictory that it's really interesting. I mean, a bloodthirsty violent fighter whom also a master in healing people. Seems legit.

  • Kagura (Gintama)

Insanely strong, cheeky, cheerful, with big appetite. Kagura-chan is so funny and cute.

  • Ryuko Matoi (Kill la Kill)

Admit it. Despite her indecent outfit, she's a badass and lovable character. Personally, I really like her.

  • Saeko Busujima (High School of the Dead)

The most badass female in High School of the Dead.

  • Shihouin Yoruichi (Bleach)

Goddess of Flash, Yoruichi.

  • Tsunade (Naruto)

The 5th Hokage is awesome.

  • Boa Hancock (One Piece)

The Pirate Princess who could turn you to stone.

  • Leenalee Lee (D.Gray - Man)

Her moves in the air with her innocence, Dark Boots,  are really pretty.

  • Olivier Mira Armstrong (Full Metal Alchemist)

The "ice queen" is the only female general in Full Metal Alchemist. She can defeated an alchemist through her swordmanship skills alone.

  • Teresa (Claymore)

Teresa of the faint smile, a legendary warrior in Claymore.

  • Ran Mouri (Detective Conan)

The most normal one among this list. But I really love a strong girl who can seriously beat douchebags.

That  was my opinion. How about yours? I don't read many manga and only watch a few anime so if you have a suggestion regarding this list, I would check it out.

By the way, all the pictures above is not mine. Credit to the uploader.


  1. I think Kirishima Touka from Tokyo Ghoul should be in this list, well she's a total badass like Mikasa :3

    1. Sadly, I haven't check Tokyo Ghoul. Thank you for the suggestion ^^

  2. THANK YOU FOR THIS POST. Realizing that there are some stories with badass women (that I haven't seen yet) makes me actually want to keep watching anime. :)

  3. wtf no Motoko kusanagi?

    1. I haven't watch or read Ghost in the Shell although I've heard it great from many people since I'm really busy now^^. But I will check it out when I have time^^

  4. I believe these ladies should be added to the list: Revy (Blakck Lagoon), Kagura (Inuyasha), Cornelia li Britannia (Code Geass). Not only are they kickass, but also they have interesting personalities and pasts.

  5. What about Mirajane from Fairytail and Akame from Akame ga kill.

  6. Where's Major aka Motoko from Ghost In Shell?


  8. where is yuno from Mirrai Nikki ? she should be here in this list

  9. Revvy from black lagoon is missing.

  10. Try Blood-c and you'll know.

  11. Uryu Minene from Mirai Nikki should TOTALLY be on here. She's awesome!

  12. I think Saber from Fate/Zero, Shiro from Deadman Wonderland, Celty from Durarara, Krul or Shinoa from Owari no Seraph and CC from Code Geass deserve to be named one of the most badass female too

  13. Yoko from Gurren Lagann

  14. Black Rock Shooter

  15. Black Rock Shooter

  16. Fantastic info.. can't help revising my top list.
