21 of the Most Badass Anime Warrior Girls in Existence

There are so many different elements that make up a character. Appearance, personality, background, you name it. But one aspect that definitely ups a character's cool factor is their skill. 

Who wouldn't want to have a powerful ally by their side, someone to protect them from all the baddies lurking in the shadows. Now imagine how wonderful it would be if that super strong friend also happened to be super hot. The possibilities are endless. This fantasy becomes reality (not literally) in the form of the anime warrior girl.

And here, we have gathered the 21 most capable cuties, most of which have saved the world from destruction at least once, into one comprehensive list.

1. Asuna Yuuki From Sword Art Online

Asuna Yuuki, known as "The Flash" for her lightning-fast sword strikes, is one of the best gamers in Sword Art Online. 

She is a rapier specialist and the sub-leader of the leading guild in Aincrad, the Knights of the Blood. With many sword skills at her disposal, she is definitely a fearsome combatant in the virtual realm! 

But even this badass anime warrior has a softer side, which is probably the half that takes over when she's cooking for Kirito and her friends.


2. Saber From Fate/stay night

Saber is a Saber-class Servant who used to be known as the "King of Knights". Her swordsmanship is at a very high level, although she excels even more at using her vast amounts of magical energy, a result of her dragon's blood. 

With her holy sword, Excalibur, and her "Mana Burst" ability, she is one of the most powerful Servants. 

Saber is loved by fans worldwide for good reason: she is kind, valiant, and fierce, all traits that make for one divine heroine. None would mind putting the fate of the world in this blonde beauty's hands.

3. Mikasa Ackerman From Attack on Titan

Mikasa Ackerman is a military genius, with amazing combat abilities, physical strength, agility, and near mastery of the 3D Maneuver Gear. 

She has been described by her superiors as worth 100 soldiers, which just proves what a prodigy she is, and why she is such an amazing anime warrior girl. 

The fact that she has been forced to overcome so much throughout her life only adds to her popularity with fans.

4. Erza Scarlet From Fairy Tail

Erza Scarlet is an S-class mage of the Fairy Tail Guild, a member of Team Natsu, and a master swordswoman. She uses a magical form of Requip known as The Knight to swap weapons and armor while fighting, and she is known as "Titania" for her immense strength. 

In addition, she has super endurance, speed, agility, and an artificial eye to mitigate the effect of certain eye techniques. 

Plus, she possesses powers of telekinesis, a vast amount of magic energy, and excellent hand-to-hand combat skills. Truly a well-rounded warrior, Erza has few weaknesses.

5. Sakura Haruno From Naruto: Shippuuden

We have watched Sakura blossom from a little shinobi-in-training into a powerful anime warrior girl. By the second season of the series, Naruto: Shippuuden, she has become one of the most acknowledged ninja in her hometown of Konohagakure. 

Not only is her punch a force to be reckoned with, she also has the ability to heal the wounded by using her keen sense for controlling her inner energy force called chakra. 

All this combined with her quick temper (she literally has an angry voice inside that goes crazy every time she gets mad) makes Sakura one serious badass.

6. Homura Akemi From Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Homura Akemi has the appearance of any other magical girl: a cute face, long shiny hair, and, of course, ribbons! However, this petite cutie has a dark secret just waiting to break free. 

As you will find out fairly quickly in the series, Homura is one of the most powerful anime warriors of all time. She has shooting skills and magical abilities that surpass your average baddie by far. 

Since this series has one of the most mysterious plots in anime, we will let you explore the depth of her strength on your own, but believe us... you will most definitely be impressed.

7. Motoko Kusanagi From Ghost in the Shell

Are you familiar with the Matrix? Well, Motoko is like all the main protagonists of it combined to make one unbelievably powerful anime warrior. 

After an incident as a child, her mind was implanted into an entirely prosthetic body. This rebirth of sorts transforms her into a cyborg of unlimited possibilities, fully equipped with a cyberbrain able to hack into the networks of other robotic beings and forcing them to fight for her. 

Even without this ability though, Major Kusanagi has superhuman strength and agility, making her nearly unstoppable. Technology can be truly frightening, but Motoko also portrays its beauty.

8. Casca From Berserk

Casca, the only female soldier in the original Band of the Hawk, is a great swordswoman, second in ability only to Griffith and Guts. 

She is extremely devoted to Griffith because when she was being threatened with rape at age twelve, he gave her a sword so she could defend herself. She has honed her combat skills since that moment.

9. Yoruichi Shihouin From Bleach

Yoruichi Shihouin is the former captain of the 2nd Division of the Gotei 13, as well as the former commander of the Onmitsukidō. Known as the "Goddess of Flash", she is regarded as the fastest Hohō master Soul Society has ever produced. 

She is also an extremely skilled hand-to-hand combatant, and almost never uses a zanpakutō or other weapon. Despite this, she more than holds her own against many powerful characters.

10. Satsuki Kiryuuin From Kill la Kill

Satsuki Kiryuuin is incredibly proficient with her sword, the Bakuzan. Even without the use of her conveniently skimpy Kamui, Junketsu, she is an extremely powerful fighter, with enhanced speed, strength, endurance, and reflexes. 

Her false toenails, made of the same material as the Bakuzan, can also be used as a weapon—which is totally absurd, but cool at the same time.

11 Most Abusive Anime Girls of All Time 14 Characters That Prove How Powerful Anime Girls Are

11. Teresa From Claymore

Teresa of the Faint Smile is considered to be the most powerful Claymore of all time. She is a jack of all trades, but also a master of all trades. 

Although she does not have a specialized sword technique of her own, she has an incredible sensitivity to Yoma energy. Her own enormous yoki reserves allow her to overpower even the strongest Awakened Beings. 

In a series full of badass female warriors, Teresa is the most badass of them all.

12. Morgiana From Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic

As a Fanalis, Morgiana is an incredibly strong fighter. She has superpowered legs, which can (literally!) kick the ass of any mighty beast. 

Not only that, but she is extremely fast, and has a highly developed sense of smell. She uses a set of fiery chains, which once shackled her as a former slave, as her Household Vessel.

13. Sango From InuYasha

Sango is a master demon slayer, although she has no spiritual or demonic powers. Still, she is adept at a number of weapons, most notably a giant boomerang named Hiraikotsu. Along with Kirara, her two-tailed demon cat, she fights and slays powerful demons. 

Sango is one of the coolest anime warrior girls out there because even without any supernatural abilities, she is an extremely strong and capable fighter.

14. Ran Tsukikage From Carried by the Wind: Tsukikage Ran

Ran Tsukikage is a female ronin who wanders around Japan, looking for adventures with her friend Meow. Ran loves sake, and loves to call herself beautiful. Of course, her most iconic characteristic is her amazing skill with the sword. 

Although very laidback (some might say lazy), she is one of the best samurai out there. She easily dispatches her enemies with a unique one-handed sword technique.

15. Lina Inverse From Slayers

Lina Inverse is a very powerful sorceress who specializes in black magic, although she also uses shamanistic and white magic. Her magic ability is immense; she is able to cast extremely high-level spells such as the Ragna Blade and Giga Slave. 

Notorious throughout the world for the destruction she tends to leave in her wake, even dragons are known to be afraid of this short-tempered sorceress.

16. Sara From Samurai Champloo

Sara, a blind shamisen player, is one of the most skilled fighters in the series. She is incredibly proficient with the kamayari, or sickle spear. Her blindness doesn't hold her back. 

In fact, this badass anime warrior girl actually uses it to enhance her other senses, and to perceive her opponents' movements during battle.

17. Maka Albarn From Soul Eater

Maka Albarn is a Scythe-Meister who is partnered with the "Demon Scythe" Soul Eater. When partnered with Soul, she is very proficient at a number of Soul Resonance attacks, such as Witch-Hunt and Demon-Hunt. Her Grigori abilities also allow her to take flight. 

As the protagonist of the series, she has many opportunities to spin her scythe to her heart's desire!

18. Utena Tenjou From Revolutionary Girl Utena

Utena Tenjou is a tomboyish teenage girl who models her behavior on that of a noble prince. She is motivated to participate in a series of sword duels to protect her friend Anthy, who is given to the winner of each duel as the Rose Bride. 

Utena can also call on the spirit of Dios to enhance her dueling abilities.

19. Shana From Shakugan no Shana

Shana is considered one of the most powerful Flame Hazes. She has great proficiency with her sword, the Nietono no Shana, and can summon and wield flames to enhance her abilities. 

In addition, she can manipulate the Power of Existence, and can even fly with Wings of Crimson. Hot!

20. Shiki Ryougi From The Garden of Sinners

Shiki Ryougi has an unbelievably high tolerance for pain. When wielding a Japanese katana, she undergoes a kind of self-hypnosis, or self-suggestion, which greatly enhances her mental and physical capabilities. For example, while her range with a knife is only three meters long, it triples to nine meters with a katana. 

Most importantly, she possesses the "Mystic Eyes of Death Perception," which allow her to perceive lines, and points, of death. 

When she cuts along those lines, or pierces those points, she can kill both things with form, and concepts without life or form. Impressive, though scary!


21. Balsa Yonsa From Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit

Balsa Yonsa is a wandering bodyguard-for-hire, and an exceptionally talented spear-wielder. 

When she takes on the task of protecting Prince Chagum from his many would-be assassins, she begins a perilous journey both to save the young boy's life, and to complete her atonement for a tragic incident in her past.
