This kind of turned into a list of female badasses, nothing wrong with that. These fierce, fiery, strong, capable characters are the top of the top when it comes to kicking ass. At least in my opinion. I’m sure there are plenty of other amazing badasses out there but these five resonate with me the most!
First up is Inej Ghafa from Six of Crows. I probably could have picked all of the crows except for Wylan but I went with my favorite. Inej wields daggers with precise and deadly aim and goes unnoticed slipping through the shadows. A combination that provides her quite a legend. Inej knows what she wants and will not compromise for it.
Next is Isabelle Lightwood from The Mortal Instruments. While Jace might be the golden child, Izzy never kept herself in his or her brother’s shadows. She slays demons with the coolest whip ever, all in high heels for that matter. She doesn’t shy away from confrontation, blunt in honesty, and truly a force to be reckoned with.
Wonder Woman was kind of a no brainer. I mean, she’s and Amazonian warrior princess with bulletproof bracelets and a Lasso of Truth. Diana Prince fights for love, peace, and justice. Her lasso compels honesty and she can fight like no other with such extensive training.
My favorite character from A Song of Ice and Fire, Arya Stark experiences such an intense journey and the book series hasn’t even finished yet. She learns how to wield Needle at such a young age and has to survive in the wilderness, moving from place to place, avoiding the ire of rival houses. The fact that she is still alive is a testament to her strength, will, and power.
Last but certainly not least is Hermione Granger. She may not wield a sword but her wand skill is off the charts. Her mind is an essential weapon but my favorite HP character is ruthless as well. The spirit of Gryffindor house emanates from her. Reckless when it comes to her passions, bravery bordering on stupidity. Hermione doesn’t let anything or anyone get in her way.
So there you have it! Five of my biggest badasses! Let me know who your Top 5 Biggest Badasses are and check back next week for another Top 5 Wednesday!
