10 Badass Female Anime Characters

Mainly when there is a female protagonist in an anime they are shy and always needing help from the male characters. Because of this it is important that we recognize the powerful female characters who do not need a man! Characters like these are important especially for women to see as so many useless and annoying female characters gives us nobody to say “wow I want to be like her”. That being said there are some badass female characters in anime that are true warriors, not just for a female but warriors in general!

1. Yoko Littner (Gurren Lagann)

When I think of badass women in anime Yoko is top of the list. She can use guns as well as anybody else and will never back down from a fight! Yoko constantly risks her life for her friends and the world. Even after someone close to her dies, she does not fall into sorrow but fights even stronger. Going from normal school teacher to fighting space aliens Yoko makes for a badass character!

2. Shiro (Deadman Wonderland)

Shiro has a lot of depth to her character as her past is ver mysterious throughout most of the series. We mainly see her as this cute and childish girl who eats everything in sight! But when she needs to… Shiro can easily destroy everything and everyone in sight. Her entire body and facial expressions change into a complete monster who strikes fear into everyone. She has the power however wether she uses that for good or bad is up to her. Either way she is an extremely powerful woman!

3. Tsunade (Naruto)

Most of Naruto’s female characters are pretty useless and never help win fights. Then there is Tsunade who goes from a runaway gambler to the first female hokage!! Just for that Tsunade needs some props. She is one of the 3 legendary sannin and gets into battle with some of the most powerful villains in the anime. Like everyone in Naruto she has a very dark past but she pushes through and does whatever she can to protect everyone in the leaf village. Go Tsunade!

4. Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail)

Say what you want about fairy tail, everyone can admit Erza is as badass as it gets. She has hundreds of different outfits that each give her different weapons and abilities. She never backs down from a challenge and has a strong, brave demeanor even when she is not in battle. Everybody respects Erza because she earned that. I will always remember in the grand magic games where Erza was first to go into this tower and choose how many monsters she will kill (all different skill levels) out of 100 and she just says she will kill every single one and walks into the tower and does just that. A feat meant to be completed by at least two or three strong fighters. Everyone in the arena was shocked but hey thats just Erza!

5. Nezuko (Demon Slayer)

Nezuko showed her power at the ver beginning even being able to withstand and fight against her demon urges. She is rare in the demon slayer world and and gives the demon slayer corps a huge advantage in battles having someone with demons strength fighting for their side. Things that humans can not tolerate or sense have no affect on Nezuko and if the people close to her are in trouble she will stop at no ends to kill the enemy. All that being said and as far as the anime goes, we have yet to see her true power!

6. Rem (Re Zero)

Rem is a very popular anime character and for good reason. She surprised viewers the most when she went from cute and shy maid to a complete blood thirsty monster! Instead of a man protecting her, she in fact is always protecting Subaru. Going up against all different types of enemies and swinging around her ball and chain, Rem definitely makes it into the top badass characters! And yes she deserves better…

7. Mikasa Ackerman (Attack on Titan)

Everybody knows and most love Mikasa. Love or hate her there is no question that she is easily one of the best fighters on the show. From the first episode she is always the one protecting Eren and needing nothing in return. Now in season 4 although Eren is extremely powerful, Mikasa is holding her own next to him and making it look easy. Whenever Mikasa is up against a titan viewers can be pretty confident that she will come out on top on the end making her a warrior among peasants.

8. Nobara Kugisaki (Jujutsu Kaisen)

Nobara is pretty new into the anime world but made her place in the top female characters pretty quickly. On the same team as two extremely powerful jujutsu sorcerers one would expect the female character to be useless or cowardly but Nobara instead steps up and does her best to be on the same level as the guys. She is confident in her abilities and is depended upon as part of the team to win battles. Nobara can only keep growing from here! As someone who personally likes very few female characters she is one I really like.

9. Lucy (Elfen Lied)

Lucy is probably the strongest character on this list and one of the more stronger anime characters in general. Killing over 9,000 people in her anime without really moving a muscle easily earns her that title. Her tragic upbringing and murderous impulses make Lucy a badass among badasses.

10. Tatsumaki (One Punch Man)

With the nickname Tornado of Terror you can expect this character to be pretty badass. S rank psychic who is very confident in her powers and knows how to use them. Although being very small and cute she packs a huge punch!
