Apart from some of the most awesome twists and revelations on their entire storyline, ANIME has undeniably got some of the most memorable characters we’ve come to know about as well. There were those who made us cry. Others even made us question the things we believe and the principles we uphold.
But there are also those who made names for themselves because of their twisted character, unconventional, bordering to weird fashion sense, and of course…..just by plainly being badass.
They are those characters we’ll never forget for the great impact they had on the entire series. And today, we’ve compiled a list of 7 female characters whose trademark badass strength, character and beauty just made their names and anime unforgettable and become the most-watched ever.
Let’s give it up for… (in no particular order)

Voice actresses: Sayaka Ohara (Japanese)/ Colleen Clinkenbeard (English)
Red hair. Straight to the point demeanor. Outrageous combat skills. Fairytale Guild’s Erza Scarlet is the only redhead that can make the sassy, pretty “scarlet” hair color look badass. She’s one of those no-nonsense characters men and women will dare not cross in a one on one combat (if possible).
Voice actresses: Mamiko Noto (Japanese) / Caitlin Glass (English)
Her golden hair, fair complexion, angelic face, and well, a slim and petite body a lot of our women would probably want to achieve – West Genetics’ Satellizer L. Bridgette has them all. But underneath this pretty, innocent face is a deadly strength, considered unmatchable in their entire academy, thus earning her the name the Untouchable Queen. Yes, she’s pretty and sweet, but try and hurt those people close to her and you may end up dead.
Voice actresses: Romi Park (Japanese)/ Christine Auten (English)
Ranked 1st in the 77th generation of Claymores (half-human, half-demon warriors who exterminate pure blood youmas), Teresa has gained the reputation for being the strongest one in their league without having to use her youma (demon) powers. Her physical dexterity, top of the line sensitivity to energy fluctuations, and basically will to stay human makes her the most attractive, but at the same time the deadliest demon killers of her time. If Teresa’s on your tail, your days are numbered.
Voice actresses: Ami Koshimizu (Japanese) / Karen Strassman (English)
If there’s something Kalen is best known for aside from having that will power matching her exceptional skills in battle, it would have to be her top class ability to fool everyone with her effortless acting skills. She started out as a weak, frail character who had to excuse herself often from class for her supposed sickness. Well, as it turned out, she’s spending those times supposedly for treatment in combatting the front line military power of the Holy Britannian empire. Beauty and brains? Absolutely!

Voice actresses: Yui Ishikawa (Japanese) / Trina Nishimura (English)
If you hurt Eren, you’ll suffer the wrath of the 104th squad’s strongest combatant. No questions. If one wants to test Mikasa’s skills, then putting Eren in danger could possibly be the fastest and most efficient way to get yourself hurt (or killed if we raise it a knot higher). She may not have the most intelligent mind on their batch. But her sheer strength and willingness to kill when the situation demands it is something to be reckoned with. Add it up on her cold looking, beautiful facade, and you just met someone you wouldn’t want to mess with. Ever.
Voice actresses: Satsuki Yukino (Japanese) / Wendee Lee (English)
Known as the ‘god of shunpo’ (Flash Step) and the notorious ex-commander of the Covert corps, Yoruichi has lived up to her name of someone whom you can’t easily get in touch with. She’s got the ability to transform herself to a golden-eyed black cat, allowing her more mobility across various dimensions. Her melee combat skills is top grade – perhaps even the best in the entire series. Most of all, she can be at par in strength with captain-level class in Soul Society without even wielding a zanpakutou (soul slayer equals to their personal sword)
She’s intelligent, got a wide network of badass friends starting from the equally formidable Kisuke Urahara, and most of all, a face and body to die for. Yoruichi doesn’t fight when not needed. But when she does, you better start planning an escape route just in case.
Voice actresses: Maaya Sakamoto (Japanese) / Lesley Pedersen (English)
The epitome of a badass female gunslinger – complete with the beauty, fame and money, Alphard (previously named as Canaan), can easily wipe off her enemies even without any backup support. She’s wise enough to know what she’s capable of, but is equally unafraid to face stronger enemies if it’s in line what she’s trying to achieve. An undeniably hot and deadly lass with a tact for diplomatic negotiations, wouldn’t she be a perfect bodyguard? (That is, if you can afford the fee.)
Beautiful at first, deadly the second after. If you fancy the elegant contrast of an action series featuring beauty and brains from the coolest group of female leads, then you shouldn’t miss the ones we have on this list.
