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.
