Top 10 Strongest Female Characters in Anime

Top 10 Strongest Female Characters in Anime

Hello everyone.

Frankly, I am very tired of infantile girls in anime.

In general, among the great variety of titles, there are enough female characters who stand out for their strength. That’s just that they are either only physically strong, but lose their heads at the sight of the first handsome guy they meet / they can’t do anything on their own and wait for everything to be decided for them. Or they are strong against the background of that rag-kun, who is constantly beaten and tortured, and, again, when it comes to making serious decisions, rag-kun suddenly becomes the one who makes these decisions, standing up with his hollow chest to protect the one who mocked him the previous 10/20/50 series. Depressing situation, isn’t it..?

And you know, there are quite a few of them, but, nevertheless, much more than I expected – mature and morally stable, strong-willed women who are able to stand up for themselves, interesting as an independent character, and not an appendage to the main character. I hope it will be interesting for you to look at them.
P.S. The main criterion in this top is, first of all, moral and psychological strength, and only then – physical. Therefore, I distributed the seats in a similar way.

10. Tanya von Degurschaff [Military chronicle of a little girl | Youjo Senki]

Occupation: Officer of the Imperial Army;
Age during the events of the main plot: changing, underage;

Ace of the imperial army, “Demon of the Rhine” and just a great killer, not particularly constrained by moral restrictions. Despite the fact that Tanya clearly does not deserve the last place, I put her here because I doubt that she should be in this top at all. After all, she is an adult man in a girl’s body. But let’s make allowances for the fact that by the definition of “woman” here we mean exactly the biological sex. And that’s why Tanya clearly deserves the right to be here.

9. Claire [Claymore]

Occupation: Warrior, Yoma hunter;
Age during the events of the main plot: approximately 25 years old;

An extremely strong warrior, half-demon, half-human, one of the strongest Claymores in the organization. However, being an ordinary warrior, as well as due to his passivity and moral and volitional qualities, he is in the penultimate place in the top (in fact, the last).

8. Android 18 (Azure) [Dragon Pearl Z | Dragon Ball Z]

Occupation: warrior, later – mother and housewife;
Age during the events of the main plot: varies, about 30 years. Practically immortal;

A cyborg created to destroy Son Goku and his friends. During the events of the Android Arch, she was one of the main antagonists. After, like the vast majority of the negative characters in the series, she switched to the side of Good. After courting a man in love with her, Kurilina married him and gave birth to a daughter. She was and is a very strong warrior, the strongest in this top, in addition– she is a very strong-willed and assertive woman who, in particular, turns her husband as she wants.

7. Michiko Malandro [Michiko and Hattin / Michiko hatches]

Occupation: thief;
Age during the events of the main plot: presumably about 30 years old;

A fugitive criminal, has a lot of bad habits and takes care of a little girl named Hana, who was rescued from the hands of sadistic foster parents. Despite the fact that this type is one of my least favorite, I can’t help but note that Michiko is a very mentally strong woman with great fortitude, really independent, which is why she beat the previous, physically stronger, opponents.

6. Boa Hancock [ One Piece]

Occupation: Pirate Empress;
Age during the events of the main plot: changing, 29-31 years;

A cruel and cynical, but very beautiful woman whose character has deteriorated under the influence of terrible events from her slave youth. After meeting Luffy, she changes for the better, becomes more romantic, kind and compassionate. She always takes care of the few people close to her.

5. Kuukaku Shiba [Bleach]

Occupation: Head of the Siba Clan;
Age during the events of the main plot: unknown. Theoretically immortal, since it is not a person, but a soul;

A very tough and even cruel woman. Being the head of the clan, she keeps him in a tight grip (a glove – she does not have one hand). She is very irritable, rebellious and often beats those who fall under the hot hand. Nevertheless, he loves his family very much and tries to protect it from any problems.

4. Mikasa Akkerman [Attack of the Titans | Shingeki no Kyojin]

Occupation: Member of the elite squad of the Intelligence Corps;
Age during the events of the main plot: changing, 15-19 years old;

One of the most outstanding warriors of mankind, the best graduate of the 104th cadet corps. She is extremely developed physically, has an almost brilliant mind and great willpower. At the same time, she is quite cold and emotionally poor. She is very much attached and takes care of her childhood friend Eren Yeager.

3. Esdes [Akame Killer / Akame ga kill!]

Occupation: General of the Imperial Army, leader of the Jaeger squad;
Age during the events of the main plot: 20 years;

A cruel sadist and the strongest warrior of the Empire, brought up in the spirit of the philosophy of “survival of the fittest”. He is constantly in search of a worthy opponent. At the same time, he is very happy for his comrades and cares about them, to which they respond with reciprocal love and devotion.

2. Olivia Mira Armstrong [Fullmetal Alchemist – Brotherhood]

Occupation: Major General of the army of Amestris, Commandant of the fortress;
Age during the events of the main plot: changing, about 40 years old;

A brilliant strategist, a harsh and demanding commander, Olivia has shown her skills many times on the battlefields and in the management of the fortress. He has a cold and unapproachable character, is well aware of his own and others’ shortcomings. At the same time, he is a very good and physically strong warrior. Like Esdes, he professes the principle of “survival of the fittest”, but in its more orderly manifestation, without slipping into sadism and constant battles. Does not possess alchemy.

1. Balalaika (Sofia Irinovskaya) [Black Lagoon]

Occupation: captain of the Airborne Forces of the Soviet Army (previously), boss of the organized criminal group “Hotel Moscow”;
Age during the events of the main plot: approximately 35-40 years;

A former participant in the Afghan war, a sniper. She rose to the rank of captain, after which she was dismissed from the armed forces. In the 90s, she created an organized criminal group from former members of her unit. A very charismatic and demanding leader, when necessary – cruel and ruthless. She is well mentally and physically prepared, hardy, owns firearms and hand-to-hand combat. She is loved by her former soldiers, enjoys great respect among them, while she herself takes part in their daily life and takes care of them. A very influential member of the mafia. In the past, she was a very pretty girl, disfigured by scars from burns received during the war. Thanks to all of the above, I earned the first place in this top.

Better top picks would be Madoka from Madoka Magica and Haruhi from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumaya. I mean, their names are in the title of their respective series for a reason. Then maybe Akame from Akame Ga Kill.
I get you’re not going for raw strength, but point is none of these three take shit because nobody (still living) is fearless enough to bother them.
Madoka fought against time itself to save her friends. ‘Nuff said.

Haruhi literally

Spoiler
alters reality
if she doesn’t get what she wants. Which is to just have a bit of fun with her school mates.

Akame did fall for Tatsumi but she prioritizes her job and responsibility. Heck, even after Tatsumi gave up
Spoiler
became a literal fking dragon
because of her actions she kept supporting the kingdom anyway and did not give two shits.
Esdeath (Esdes?) and Balalaika are frankly mass-murdering sociopaths. Though I guess that can be a strength in its own way.

if this person followed their own criteria then Boa Hancock would not even be on this list considering she is not only head over heels for Luffy, but is more then happy to bend over backwards for him. (when she took him to impel down so he could save ace just because he asked her to and simultaneously got her to change her ruling on whether or not to follow the marines orders with no hesitation)
