* Imperator Furiosa from ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad''. Even in a series where being an Action Girl is practically a survival requirement, she's still at the top of the pile. She's a BadassDriver who leads several of Immortan Joe's Wives to keep them out of a constant life of sex slavery. She's also an incredibly good shot and physical fighter, even handing Max his ass several times. A number of critics and fans have begun to call her this generation's Ellen Ripley.

** Storm is one of the most powerful X-Men.
** Jean Grey. Fighting both up close and [[MindOverMatter at a distance]].
* When Moira [=McTaggart=] sees that the Hellfire Club is clearly up to no good in her intro scene in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', she goes undercover and always is brave when facing danger.
* ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'':
** Blink's powers make her extremely effective in fighting the Sentinels, both in taking them out herself and assisting the others in fighting them.
** Mystique is the only mutant back in the past who's been doing ''anything'' for the last few years (Magneto's been stuck in the Pentagon for a decade, and Xavier's been moping around the house since the start of the Vietnam War.) Even once the plot takes off, she's arguably the most active character.
* ''Film/TheWolverine'':
** Yukio introduces herself in a bar brawl and proves competent enough to protect Logan. And later helps him fight Viper.
** Mariko is proficient in softhanded martial arts and an excellent knife-thrower, helping to [[spoiler:kill Silver Samurai.]]

* Princess Leia Organa from ''Franchise/StarWars'' often switches in and out of the ActionGirl role. She must have got it from her mother, [[LadyOfWar Padme Amidala]], who is, incidentally, the best shot with a blaster in the entire series.

That's just the tip of the iceberg really, since she also turns out to be an AcePilot capable of [[spoiler:flying the Millenium Falcon just as well, if not ''better'', than Han and Chewie]]. She's a good shot too. Most importantly however, she's also [[spoiler:TheHero of the film - effectively the new Luke Skywaler - since she actually has a strong connection to the Force and is larval Jedi-to-be, resulting in her beating Kylo Ren in a lightsaber duel in the film's climax]].
