Top 10 Strongest Female Anime Characters
The Role of Female
Female characters in anime are often depicted as the "Damsel in Distress" in the series. They are always saved by the main male protagonist. They can not protect themselves. And worse is that sometimes girls in the anime are just for the fan service or just to excite the viewers and readers.
But not all of the female characters are like this. Some are strong and even stronger than other men. Yet they are depicted as this sexy female that titillates(sorry for the word, but that's the truth) readers and viewers.
In this list I put all the female characters I know that I can say that they are the strongest among other characters.
The High School Students
Rei Miyamoto and Saeko Busujima (High School of the Dead)
The strong female protagonists of High School of the Dead are only in secondary or high school. Rei being an expert spear wielder and Saeko an expert swordswoman. At the age of 17 and 18, respectively, they are already battling a horde of zombies and take note, they are WINNING! Being a normal teenage high school girl students killing zombies in the streets, is enough reason why these two are in this list.
The Rain Woman
Juvia Lockser (Fairy Tail)
A former member of the Element 4 of the Phantom Lord Guild. She became obsessed with Gray Fullbuster after they battle during the war between Phantom Lord Guild and the Fairy Tail Guild. After the disbandment of Phantom Lord Guild, Juvia joined Fairy Tail. Since then she proved to them that she is quite a powerhouse member of the guild. Being an S-class mage of the former Phantom Lord, Juvia is definitely one of the strongest mage in Fairy Tail. Wielding a Water Magic, she can transform herself into water, resisting physical attacks. She can create tidal waves, cyclones, bubbles, and even form water bullets and blades. Juvia at top 9? Yes, because she can easily be beaten by Erza, Mirajane, Ultear, Minerva, Kagura and maybe Wendy.
The Superhuman and The Alien
Morgiana (Magi: Labyrinth of Magic) and Yuki Nagato (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
A former slave, Morgiana is the third protagonist of the Magi series. As a Fanalis, a hunting tribe of the Dark Continent, she has an immense physical strength and enhanced speed and senses. She also knows martial arts and uses the power if Djinn, Amol, who controls fire. Morgiana in top 8 is enough, since she is definitely strong but not strong enough to be on the higher tier.
Tied with Morgiana, is the alien created by Data Overmind, Yuki Nagato. She is the third person who joined Haruhi Suzumiya in her club called the S.O.S. Brigade.She appears to be an introvert and loves reading books. She has supernatural powers like enhance physical strength, sensory powers, mental abilities, data powers, data jurisdiction powers, and precognition powers.
The Princess of the Shihōin Clan.
Yoruichi Shihōin (Bleach)
A former captain of the 2nd Division of the Gotei 13,and also a former captain of the Onmitsukido, Yoruichi is our top 7 of the list. She can transform into a black cat. She is also an expert of hand-to-hand combat, an expert swordswoman, has an enhanced strength, speed and durability, a kido expert, a master assassin, and a master strategist. I can say that she is the top 2 strongest female character in Bleach based on her history. Without her Shikai and Bankai being revealed, she can be a formidable opponent for sure.
The Snake Princess
Boa Hancock (One Piece)
The only female member of the Shichibukai, the Snake Princess of Amazon Lily, Boa Hancock, our top 6, is the strongest(YES, for me she is the strongest) female character in One Piece. She is a famous man-hater, except for Luffy. She indiscriminately attacks every man, pirates and even marines, but not Luffy, for she loves Luffy very much. She is so strong that she can single-highhandedly destroy several Pacifistas. She has an enhanced strength and can use Haki. She ate the Mero Mero no Mi or the Love-Love Fruit. She can make others fall in love with her and can turn them to stones. Turning the opponent to stones and dealing damage by using her strength is her way of dealing with the opponents. I can surely say that after the time skip, Boa is stronger than before.
Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail)
The strongest female protagonist of the Fairy Tail series, Erza the Titania is my fifth strongest female character in the anime. She has the power to Requip, it allows her to swap weapons and armors simultaneously. She is said to have over 100 armors and 200 different weapons. She has an enhanced strength, immense durability, immense magic power and immense reflexes. Her power can be proven with the battles she won with some of the strongest villains in Fairy Tail. Among them are Jellal, Azuma, Minerva, Midnight and the 100 monsters in the Pandemonium.
Here are the list of her known armors:
- Heaven's Wheel Armor - with this armor she can summon over 200 different weapons and she can fly while fighting.
- Black Wing Armor
- Flame Empress Armor – this armor has a flame resistance and with this Erza can manipulate fire.
- The Giant's Armor – Erza gained an enhanced strength when using this armor.
- Adamantine Armor – this armor increases Erza’s defense and with this she can also create magical barrier.
- Purgatory Armor
- Lightning Empress Armor –this armor gives Erza a resistance to Lightning attacks and she can use Lightning magic with this.
- Flight Armor - this armor increases Erza’s speed
- Robe of Yūen
- Morning Star Armor
- Armadura Fairy
- Sea Empress Armor – this armor gives Erza resistance to Water magic and she can also use Water magic with this.
- Nakagami Armor
- Farewell Fairy Tail Armor – the name says it all.
The Best Armor is...
Which is the best among Erza's Armor?
The Top 1 of the 104th Trainees Squad
Mikasa Ackerman (Shingeki No Kyojin)
The adopted sister of Eren Yeager and the main female protagonist of the series. She is so protective towards Eren due to the last request of Eren’s mother before he was eaten by a titan. She is the top student who graduated along with Eren, Armin and the others. She has an unexplained immense strength. She can also use the 3D Manuever Gear excellently. It seems like having her in the top 4 is quite questionable, but I think it’s ok for her to be in this rank since she’s just a normal fifteen year old girl battling titans on rampage. So need I say more why she is on top 4?
The Former "Kenpachi"
Retsu Unohana (Bleach)
The former wielder of the name Kenpachi and the captain of the Fourth Division of Gotei 13, Unohana is Soul Society’s best healer. But why is she on the top 3 if she is known as just the best healer? Actually, she was formerly known as the most diabolical criminal to ever exist in the Soul Society. So with that, I can say that Unohana is one of the strongest female anime characters. A master healer, a master swordsman, and a criminal. She has the thirst for murdering and battling strong opponents. Need I say more?
The Wretched Egg
Shiro (Deadman Wonderland)
The childhood friend of Ganta, Shiro was an adopted daughter of Ganta’s mother. She was the first Deadman, a human with enhance immune system. She has a second personality known as the Wretched Egg. She has the ability to regenerate. She also has an enhanced physical strength. Once the Wretched Egg controls over her body, she became a mass murderer, killing every person she sees. She is very dark and very sadistic. That’s the reason why Shiro became the second strongest female anime character.
The Queen Diclonius
Lucy (Elfen Lied)
The main character, the anti-heroine, and the anti-villainess of the series. She was called the Queen Diclonius. Diclonius is a a newly evolved species higher than an average person, possessing psychokinetic powers far beyond Human. She is both ruthlessly tormented and at times a sadistic tormentor, driven by the cruelty she found in life. She possessed a power over Vectors, invisible telekinetic arms. She has a killer instinct inside her. She killed another Diclonius by dismembering. She killed her love interest’s family. I don’t know if she is the strongest or the darkest female anime character. But yeah she’s strong! She’s my number one!
