** 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]]''...

** Don't forget the ladies from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''. You have {{Cute Bruiser}}s (Athena, Yuri, Hinako, Momoko), {{Little Miss Badass}}es (Mignon), {{Action Mom}}s (Vanessa), [[LadyOfWar Ladies of War]] (Chizuru, Maki, Elisabeth), [[BloodKnight Blood Ladies]] (Vice and Mature), {{Emotionless Girl}}s (Leona Heidern), {{Bifauxnen}} (King, though she's also a bit of an ActionMom [[PromotionToParent because she raised her little brother]]), [[MurderousThighs Strong Grapplers]] (Shermie, Blue Mary), {{Highly Visible Ninja}}s (Mai), and many others.
** [[VideoGame/SoulSeries Sophitia]] [[CodeGeass "Badass Mother"]] [[VideoGame/SoulSeries Alexandria]]. Fugudsakes, when [[MamaBear she thought her daughter Phyrra was in danger]], she promptly mowed down almost ''every single character in the game'' with ease. Honorable mentions go to the lady ninja Taki, the very talented Ivy Valentine, Sophitia's younger sister Cassandra, ChineseGirl swordswoman Chai Xianghua, PluckyGirl Seung Mina, JeanneDArchetype Hilde, FemmeFatale Setsuka, the [[LittleMissBadass young]] and [[KickingAssInAllHerFinery classy]] Amy, and [[CuteBruiser the tiny but powerful]] Talim. The fifth game gives us LadyOfWar Hilde, Taki's McNinja apprentice Natsu, [[spoiler: Xianghua's daughter]] and LadyOfWar in training Leixia, and [[spoiler: the aforementioned Phyrra herself after her DarkMagicalGirl stint is over]].

*** Princess Camilla from the Nohr Kingdom is a powerhouse. Other Nohrian action girls include Effie, Luna ([[spoiler: who is actually an OlderAndWiser Severa from ''Awakening'', using a different name]]), Charlotte, Belka, Nyx, Pieri, 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.
*** Hana from the Hoshido Kingdom is a deadly swordswoman. There's also Kagerou, Rinkah, Princess Hinoka, Yuugiri, Setsuna, Orochi, Oboro, Crimson, and Mozume (who also can join in both sides). Princess Sakura starts as an on-foot WhiteMage, but she can be promoted into this.
*** Finally, ''Fates'' also has a second generation, and it ''also'' includes several girls skilled in self-defense: Sophie, Ophelia, Soleil, Eponine, Kanna (who can be a guy, if the Avatar is a woman), Kinu, Velour, Midoriko, Matoi and Syalla. The only WhiteMagicianGirl in the group, Mitama, can join the ActionGirl-dom when promoted.

* It's probably easier to list women who ''aren't'' {{Action Hero}}es in ''VideoGame/UncommonTime''. Teagan is a particularly notable example, as she's [[BadassNormal a purely physical fighter]] and the toughest of your five party members.

** ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' gives us four new action girls: Miranda Lawson (the Illusive Man's right-hand woman and Shepard's second-in-command), Samara (asari matriarch, KnightErrant, and {{Punisher}}), Jack (trained from childhood to be the ultimate biotic), and Kasumi Goto (possibly the galaxy's best thief). Tali also returns, having [[TookALevelInBadass taken a level in badass]] since the first game. That's not even going into the [[NonPlayerCharacter NPCs]].
