15 Strong Female Characters That Aren’t Appreciated Enough From Movies And TV

Here are a few of the oft-mentioned female solid characters.

1. Minerva McGonagall from Harry Potter:

“And the actress, Dame Maggie Smith, is badass too. It takes a lot of strength and courage to continue to film Half-Blood Prince while she had cancer and was receiving treatment.”

2. Buffy Summers from Buffy the Vampire Slayer:

“Here’s what I love about Buffy: She’s an imperfect character. She may be the slayer, but she’s human in making mistakes. She’s awkward at times. She sticks her foot in her mouth, makes bad decisions, and is not always the best daughter or friend. But in the end, she saved the world. A lot.”

3. Moana from Moana:

“Brave kid on a mission who stands up to anyone in her way. And she has a goofy chicken that she cares for wholeheartedly. Strength and compassion.”

4. Morticia A. Addams from The Addams Family:

“Long and loving marriage, loves her kids but lets them grow and pursue their interests, protective of the people she loves AND has an awesome house. What’s not to love?”

5. Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada:

“She never raised her voice and could command a room effortlessly.”

6. Azula from Avatar: The Last Airbender:

“Azula has to be one of the best villains in T.V. history.”
“Most of the female leads in Avatar: The Last Airbender, including Azula, even though she was the villain.”
“Pretty much every main female character in Avatar: The Last Airbender.”
“Definition of strong female characters without forcing it.”

7. Ripley from Aliens:

“She’s the perfect role model because ANYONE can look up to her. Her strength comes from keeping cool and making smart decisions. Something that any person can internalize and try to emulate.”

8. Kimiko from The Boys:

“I love the ‘Eat my shit, Nazi bitch’ scene because it shows how you can have strong female characters kicking ass without force-feeding us.”

9. Hermione Granger from Harry Potter:

“Hermione, especially in the books. She blackmails Rita Skeeter, punches Malfoy for being a dick, and solves every problem that comes her way no matter how long it might take. She creates S.P.E.W. to stop house-elf slavery despite people ridiculing her for it, and much more.”

10. Mulan from Mulan:

“Mulan (from the original Disney movie). She sucked but trained hard to be a better soldier, all while doing so to protect her father.”

11. Octavia from The 100:

“She starts as someone who has sheltered their whole life, becomes the most feared ruthless ruler ever, and eventually grows into a morally respectful person.”

12. Kim Wexler from Better Call Saul:

“She’s a queen.”

13. Chrisjen Avasarala and Naomi Nagata from The Expanse:

“They’re some of the best-written female characters in the entire genre of science fiction.”

14. Demona from Gargoyles:

“Demona from Gargoyles. Greg Weisman does a good job writing strong female characters in general.”

15. Cersei Lannister, Lady Olenna and Margaery Tyrell, and Arya and Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones:

“Cersei, Lady Olenna and her granddaughter, and Arya and Sansa Stark. You don’t have to punch things to be a strong character.”
