** Once Skye fully takes up her identity as [[ComicBook/DaisyJohnson]] she quite firmly is put on May's level, arguably even higher due to her superpowers.

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': Melinda May, [[{{Badass}} SO HARD]]. Skye [[CharacterDevelopment slowly becomes one, too]], but May is on a whole different level, being pretty much the most formidable hand-to-hand combatant in the series. If you're not superhuman, she will DESTROY you.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': Many of the [[Characters/SupernaturalHunters women hunters]] including mother-daughter team [[ActionMom Ellen]] and Jo Harvelle, [[LittleMissBadass Krissy Chambers]], and [[RetiredBadass young]] [[spoiler:Mary Winchester]]. The [[Characters/SupernaturalDemons demons]] Ruby (particularly in Season 3; there was some unfortunate BadassDecay in Season 4) and Meg (when she [[HeelFaceTurn starts using her powers for good in later seasons]]) also qualify. [[Characters/SupernaturalAngels Anna]] was this in theory (as the ex-leader of a garrison of angelic soldiers and current fugitive of Heaven) and did have several {{Badass}} moments, but didn't get enough scenes to show her fighting prowess before [[spoiler:she got PutOnABus, coming back only to turn on the Winchesters and get killed]].

** Buffy herself, from the very beginning. Creator/JossWhedon explained that besides the pure [[GirlsNeedRoleModels female-empowerment angle]], he wanted to take the opening of virtually every horror movie ever made and [[InvertedTrope turn it on its head]]; normally, [[DarknessEqualsDeath the pretty blond girl walks into the dark alley, the monster goes in after, and the girl dies]]. Here, the girl rips the monster a new one. Naturally, the movie features such a scene (involving several vampires, but also a telling-off for Buffy for being an idiot). In the pilot episode of the show, she walks into a dark alley and clobbers Angel from above. And in the very first scene of the show, Darla chows down on a creeper while wearing a schoolgirl outfit in a dark and abandoned school.

** And the count continues with Artemis, Jessie Quick, Thea Queen/Speedy, more introduced metahumans...at this point, it seems like anyone who tries to attack a random woman in the Arrowverse runs a high-risk of getting [[MuggingTheMonster their ass handed to them]] by the shear number of butt-kicking women there are.

** She's aided by her adopted sister Alex, who kicks much butt as a DEO agent, and they've run into multiple female alien threats, not to mention superpowered humans Livewire and Silver Banshee. During the crossover with ''TheFlash2014'' when Supergirl and the Flash faced off in a fight against the latter two, Barry joked they would settle this like women.

* ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'': Despite the fact that she ''seems'' to be TheChick, Gwen Cooper is actually an ActionGirl. Toshike Sato, on the other hand, was definitely a combo of TheChick and TheSmartGuy.

* Main character Lisa from ''Series/BeyondTheWalls'' is the driving force of the plot. She is proactive, brave and not afraid to deal with her own shortcomings, but never lets them sway her from her goal for long. Being a [[BadassNormal normal]] woman doesn't keep her from kicking quasi-zombie butt, either.
