* Thora in ''VideoGame/{{Jotun}}'', a Viking warrior who, despite being a female and the chieftain's younger child, proved herself powerful enough a warrior to become leader of her clan and their fleet of drakkr ships. Unfortunately, her death at sea wasn't valorous enough for her to reach Valhalla, but she gets a second chance to prove her mettle by battling her way through Norse purgatory, fighting the elemental giants known as Jotun. And she does, with only her axe and her [[{{Determinator}} determination]].

** The first game also has Safana, Branwen, Dynaheir, Shar-Teel, Faldorn, and Alora, all of whom are capable in their own right.
** Mazzy and Nalia from the second game also join the fray. So, while Jaheira is easily the #1 Action Girl of this franchise, there are certainly other ladies who deserve mention.

* By virtue of being a fighting game series, ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' features a bunch, which include [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} Samus Aran]], [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Jigglypuff]], [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Princess Zelda]] (also as [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Sheik]]), [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Princess Peach]], [[VideoGame/IceClimber Nana]], [[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy Rosalina]], [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Lucina]], and [[VideoGame/KidIcarus Palutena]]. But special mention goes to the ''VideoGame/WiiFit'' Trainer, who attacks opponents with what are basically yoga poses. All those other women had at least ''some'' taste of action in their original franchises, even Peach; the Trainer's games never featured any action ''at all''.

** The famous Chun Li from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' and beyond could turn anyone's head with her looks or one (thousand) of her ridiculously fast and powerful kicks. Her SF legacy is continued by ladies like Cammy White, Rose, Sakura Kasugano, Karin Kanzuki, Makoto, Elena, Hokuto, Pullum Purna, "Rainbow" Mika Nanakawa and others. The newest addition to the roster is Laura Matsuda from the upcoming (as of 2015) ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV''.
** Chun Li's partner in dishing out leggy Chinese violence, Jam Cloudberry from ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' is a LethalChef [[ChefOfIron of a different variety]]. The other girls in the game aren't slouches either: May is a BadassAdorable with a huge anchor as her WeaponOfChoice, Baiken is a one-armed HandicappedBadass, A.B.A can whack the hell outta you with a ''[[ImprobableWeaponUser big key]]''...

** [[VideoGame/SoulSeries Sophitia]] [[CodeGeass "Badass Mother"]] [[VideoGame/SoulSeries Alexandria]].
