Maybe it's the gay in me, but I love a strong female character that kicks ass. These are a few (TV live action only) that I would want watching my back in a knife fight. Who'd I miss?
  1. Wonder Woman
    570421 fffa6cdd 13c7 4222 91b4 56fd78687a87
    I mean come on. She was fighting for your rights, I'm her satin tights!
  2. Buffy Summers
    570431 c79d4500 8e47 419a 82b8 9df54c695745
    I debated on using Faith Lehane on here instead because she kicks ass slightly more in my book but in the end I decided Buffy deserves to be on the list. But now I realize I can have both on the list! I make the rules!
  3. Faith Lehane
    55cc5cbd 3a44 4911 b91f 09f239b9c80e
    I was trying not to go overboard w/Joss Whedon characters but @gigi & @daniellenuss convinced me that Faith, the bad ass slayer on Buffy deserved to be on this list as well.
  4. Sydney Bristow
    570441 8386c124 e1cb 4367 be8a 2555806f64c2
    No explanation needed. Sydney Bristow kicked ass.
  5. Emma Peel
    578511 95b875e4 10c4 4107 ad88 d65a9983b778
    There'd be no Sydney Bristow without Mrs. Peel.
  6. Sabrina Duncan
    570451 11a8fe27 21c8 454d b249 e54657519974
    The smart one of Charlie's Angels. I liked her best.
  7. Jaime Sommers
    570461 63ff7258 3637 4fc5 aece d5a2d9b5b915
    When I'm feeling particular sloggy on the treadmill at the end of my run, I mentally imagine myself as her and that gives me a little bit of extra push. (Did I type that for everyone to read? Please forget it if you ever meet me in person.)
  8. Starbuck (Kara Thrace)
    570471 9a324fff a069 42f7 9479 c07193380149
    I'm the poorly remade Bionic Woman show that aired in 2007, Katee Sackoff appeared as the evil Bionic Woman. Basically she was Starbuck. I was totally OK with that. In fact I think the show would have lasted longer had it been called The Evil Bionic Woman and had Katee as the lead.
  9. Olivia Dunham
    570481 f11aa0bf 5b5a 4866 9d12 1754800585ff
    Though I kind of liked her warmer alternative Fauxlivia character more.
  10. Dana Scully
    570491 bb15faab 407a 45c5 ac96 7153b816aaa6
    If I included Olivia Dunham, I have to include her predecessor Dana. She has the best resting bitch face!
  11. Agent 99
    1d53769f f6d9 40de abe6 5236e34bb4b1
    I mean seriously. Does anyone think Maxwell Smart would be alive if it wasn't for his beautiful and whip smart partner?
  12. Basically every clone in Orphan Black
    570511 a8f1079b 464e 4bf5 8bd8 65b040a69ea1
    How can I choose? I love them all! Also, actor Tatiana Maslany, you are amazing.
  13. River Tam
    F8f2335a 6d2f 418f 890b e03180bca3b8
    I'm not a hardcore browncoat and honestly River didn't really show her kickass-ness until the movie but I do love Summer Glau so she made this list.
  14. Xena
    570501 97d1b2c7 42a8 4d9f b86c 4c02c6009f8a
    Though honestly it was hard for me to get past the cheese factor of Xena, I felt obligated to put her on this list.
