* Blaze the Cat is the most straight example from the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' games, but Amy is no slouch with [[DropTheHammer that hammer of hers]] and Rouge will ''literally'' kick your ass as a KickChick. Cream will sometimes take action as well, and actually made her debut game a breeze to play through. Shade [[spoiler:the Echidna]] from SonicChronicles is another perfect example, armed with twin blades, grenades and martial arts.

Added DiffLines:

* Rebecca from ''[[VideoGame/ShadowOfTheWoolBall Rise of the Wool Ball]]''. While in the previous game in the series (''Shadow of the Wool Ball'') she's a DamselInDistress being rescued in her boyfriend, in ''Rise'' their roles are reversed and it's Rebecca who shoots her way through the kitten army in order to rescue her boyfriend and save her world. Not only is she as good at fighting and shooting as him, but she's also really damn good at skateboarding.

*** [[PlayerCharacter Corrin]], if a girl, will be the standout case as the heroine who leads an army to victory regardless of which side the player chooses.
*** Azura doesn't look like one, but she's surprisingly competent in a fight, and follows you regardless of which route you take.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' has a doozy of an ActionGirl cast. If [[PlayerCharacter Robin]] is played as a girl, she'll lead the cast. In addition, this trope is up a notch with the mostly female-only skill "Galeforce", which grants them another full turn if the beat an enemy. Besides the female Robin, we also get:

** The most notable one in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' has a doozy of an ActionGirl cast. If [[PlayerCharacter Robin]] is played as a girl, she'll lead arguably Lucina, who gathers her friends to literally ''travel through time'' to save the cast. In addition, world and saves everyone on multiple occasions before even joining the party, ''and'' wields the sword "Falchion," which is legendary in-universe. For almost all of the girls, this trope is up a notch with the mostly female-only skill "Galeforce", which grants them another full turn if the beat an enemy. Besides the female Robin, we also get:enemy.
*** If [[PlayerCharacter Robin]] is played as a girl, she'll definitely be one, as a tactician who formulates battle strategies and kicks some serious hiney with both swords and magic.



*** The ''second'' generation adds Lucina, Severa, Cynthia, Kjelle, Noire, Nah and female Morgan. Yeah, it's [[WorldOfBadass that kind of series]].
** Naturally, ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' continues the WorldOfBadass trend. [[PlayerCharacter Corrin]], if a girl, will be the standout case as the heroine who leads an army to victory regardless of which side the player chooses. Even if Corrin is played as a guy, however, there are every bit as many female warriors as there are male:

Princess Camilla of Nohr is a gorgeous vamp who rides into battle with a giant axe and has the best strength of all the royal siblings, seen as a beast in battle by both friends and foes. Oboro of Hoshido, meanwhile, is a super-girly, lance-wielding retainer who ''tanks'' with her wonderfully high strength and defense.

*** In the Nohr route, you'll get Princess Camilla, Selena, Effie, Charlotte, Beruka, Nyx, Peri, Flora and Felicia (who joins the avatar regardless of what side he/she chooses). Princess Elise starts as a mounted WhiteMage, but she can be promoted into this.

* Mona Sax of ''MaxPayne2'' is a very capable [[ProfessionalKiller assassin]] who is the title character's equal when it comes to guns and ass-kicking in general. You get to play as her during the second act, when Max gets in trouble at the construction site and Mona has to ensure that he stays alive. You also step into her shoes during the third act, when Max gets a bullet in the head from Vlad at the funhouse and Mona "comes to get him through the fire." The two eventually go on a two-person [[StormingTheCastle castle storm]] on Woden's manor.
