Best gaming Heroines



  • So I just want to see who ppl think are the best Heroines in gaming. It doesn't necessarily have to be a main hero of a game either, just any significant female protagonist present in a game. So for me my list would have to be..

    Lightning (ff13)
    Lara Croft (Tomb raider)
    Nel Zelpher (Star Ocean)
    Meryl (Metal Gear)
    Eva (Metal Gear)
    Milla Maxwell (Tales of Xillia)
    Collette Brunel (tales of symphonia)
    Jessica (Dragon Quest 8)
    Tetra (Zelda Wind Waker)

    There's probably more out there i could name if i tried. Now everyone laugh at the fact i put Lightning in the list lol. I cant help it, i freakin love Lightning Farron.



  • Samus (Metroid series (excluding Other M))
    Judith (Tales of Vesperia)
    Blaze the Cat (Sonic Franchise)
    Bayonetta (Bayonetta)
    Every female lead in a Resident Evil Game (Except Ashley)



  • Zelda (The Legend of Zelda Series)
    Aigis (Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3)
    Chie Satonaka (Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4)
    Aya Brea (Parasite Eve Series)
    Luca Trulyworth (Ar Tonelico II: Melody of Metafalica)
    Agnès Oblige (Bravely Default)
    Yuna (Final Fantasy X)



  • Here's my pick.

    Aigis (Persona 3)
    Edea (Bravely Default)
    Celes (FF6)
    Rydia (FF4)
    Selen (Lufia 2)
    Nanami (Suikoden 2)
    Mona Sax (Max Payne)
    Estelle Bright (Legend of Heroes Trails in the Sky)
    The Boss (MGS3)



  • Neptune (Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise)
    Midna (The Legend of Zelda franchise)
    Yuna (Final Fantasy X/X-2)
    Kairi (Kingdom Hearts franchise)
    Samus Aran (Metroid franchise)
    Edea Lee (Bravely Default)



  • Meetra Surik, she lost her connection to the force and regained it and actually acquired a stronger connection because of the events of KOTOR 2. She is also the second most trusted individual under Revan's wing, next to Malak.



  • The fact that Tifa Lockhart's name hasn't even been spoken in this thread is a travesty.

    Seriously, all of you. FOR SHAME. -_-



  • @SpacemanHardy:

    Not to mention Cortana from the Halo saga >_>



  • @Zangetsu91:

    Samus Aran (Metroid franchise)

    I hope that excludes Other M



  • Here is my list

    The borderlands 2 mechromancer Gaige, who might I add is voiced by Cherami Leigh Kuehn (Lucy heartfilia).
    Lilith- Borderlands 2 (voiced by Colleen Clinkenbeard (Erza Scarlet))
    Naturally Lara Croft especially in Tomb Raider (2013)
    Lightning FF13
    Yuna
    CORTANAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (yell that like you know you did when you thought she died in halo 4)
    Zelda and Samus are a Must because they are classics
    Catwoman Arkham series
    Faith (mirrors Edge)
    Dr. Liara T"Soni Mass effect
    Anya Stroud Gears of War
    Sarah Kerrigan StarCraft
    Elizabeth Bioshock Infinite
    Zoey and Rochelle Left4Dead
    Cynthia Pokemon
    Isabella from Civilization V: Gods and Kings (she is also consistently the only character to match your strategies and play with/against you)
    and lastly the female Titanfall pilot soldier reason no sexualization realist combat armor IMC pilot still pulled off attractive without true sexuality.



  • So she was only a heroine in her human form, so I'm not sure if it counts, but Kerrigan from Starcraft has a really interesting and well-writ backstory!



  • @THEFACTOR4DEATH:

    Zelda and Samus are a Must because they are classics

    As long as you exclude the Samus of Other M.



  • I will throw this out there: Princess Peach.

    Yes, her archtype is the damsel in distress but when it comes down to it she has quite the active role in teh games. The Paper Mario series often has her putting herself in further danger to obtain information for Mario or hinder the enemy in what way she can. She is very athletic and in the Smash series can go toe to toe with even the toughest fighters. Shes a skilled spell caster, but rarely needs to use it as she can land kicks that will leave people dazed. She really shows that death wears pink.

    Bonus: The Giga Bowser trophy in Sm4sh? Notice how she is throwing Mario back to protect HIM? while charging forward at Giga Bowser…Frying pan at the ready with a look of pure determination?

    Other strong females in games? Jaina Proudmoore and Tyrande Whisperwind in the Warcraft series.



  • Here is my list,
    Ellen (Folklore)
    Rayne (Bloodrayne)
    Alicia Clause (Bullet Witch)
    Carla Valenti (Indigo Prophecy)
    Lilith (Borderlands)
    Madison Paige (Heavy Rain)

    @iamshodan:

    As long as you exclude the Samus of Other M.

  • Off the top of my head:
    1. Lara Croft
    2. Lightning (Final Fantasy XIII)
    3. Bayonetta
    4. Lilith (Borderlands)
    5. Ada Wong (Resident Evil)
