I can't argue with Sarah Connor as #1 (though I would have understood if she was demoted for being mentally unstable), but I do think Vasquez and Major Kira are big oversights.

eh, starbuck was the hero but struck me as more whiney than badass.

had some questionable morals but was considerably more badass

No Jenette Vasquez?  No Ziva David?  No Aeryn Sun?

List is a total FAIL.

Yakivegas: Paksenarrion Dorthansdotter.


Nice. I like Elizabeth Moon's work.

Not_Todd: List fails with no Jane Sagan.


+1 Internets for Scalzi.

The Mord Sith, a group of ladies you would rather having fighting with you not against


That's one group of severely traumatized women.. their training is the stuff of nightmares.

texdent: How about the Green Ajah of Aes Sedai?


I'd take any Far Dareis Mai over an Aes Sedai for badassery.

These two alone are worth an entire battalion and they're only sixteen.

If S.W.O.R.D. counts I'd go with Abigail Brand. If not I'd settle for Captain (formerly Ms.) Marvel.

List fails without Martha Washington from Frank Miller's old Martha Washington Goes to War series.
 
2013-01-27 07:58:27 AM  
There seriously aren't enough shouts for femShep in this here thread! Hell, I'd take pretty much any of the girls from Mass Effect, especially Jack. And I'd want Starbuck at my side in a fight for sure.

That being said; "Hey Vasquez, have you ever been mistaken for a man?"

Is there any character she plays who isn't a badass?
 
2013-01-27 11:38:47 AM  

texdent: And as someone mentioned on the site, Buffy Summers


Strictly speaking, is Buffy, Faith or Willow the most Badass?
I'd lean towards willow, because I've had a crush on her for ages.
 
2013-01-27 11:42:13 AM  

SamFlagg: Carter


Or a star and a stargate hooked up to another near a black hole.

Let's see all those other bints on that list do *THAT*.

Willow may have the most power but if she's good she's not going to fight in your army and if she's evil you don't want her. Faith is a badass but I have to give it to Buffy for one reason, the episode where Cordelia made a wish that Buffy never came to Sunnydale. When she finally showed up in the episode and she was all beaten up and had no hope but was still fighting on. That is a badass soldier fighting the good fight because she has to.

I can't argue with any part of this analysis. Good call.

came for the Martha Washington mention. left with the awesome Halo Jones mention too.

/Kusanagi would be #1 on my list
//followed by Battle Angel Alita at #7 or so

No mention?

Mugato: thamike: 10 broken, crazed individuals who don't belong anywhere near firearms (except for maybe Ripley...maybe)

Ripley has a severe case of PTSD and never touched a rifle before the midpoint of Aliens. She also has a skewed sense of priorities like going back for her cat. Lara Croft is the most sane of the group.


Uh, no. The Major beats even Lara Croft out.

Never follow a Scientologist into battle, no matter the tits.

Sure she's been mentioned four or five times, but she should be, because she's just too bad.
 
2013-01-28 11:02:01 AM  
Anyone mention Osira'h from "The Saga of Seven Suns"?

She may be a little girl, but she is pretty badass.

LesserEvil: List fails without...
