* Sylvia in the ''ViewtifulJoe'' franchise. While she's a DamselInDistress in the first game, in the EvenBetterSequel she becomes a badass superheroine every bit on par with her titular boyfriend.

** ''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.
*** The Hoshido route has Hana, Scarlet, Oboro, Kagero, Princess Hinoka, Rinkah, Reina, Setsuna, Orochi, and Mozu (who also can join in both sides). Princess Sakura starts as an on-foot 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.

** Celica's army also has Mae and Sonya, two badass mages. Palla, Catria, and Est from the Archenea games (mentioned below) also join.
** Alm's army has Clair and Mathilda, both female soldiers, and the mage Delthea. The ''Echoes'' remake also adds Faye to the mix, so that Alm could have a girl in his initial party from the beginning.

** Princess Caeda from the ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Archanea]]'' games is the original Fire Emblem ActionGirl, along with Minerva, Palla, Catria, Linde, and Tiki (who makes a comeback in ''Awakening''). As you can probably tell at this point, Intelligent Systems ''loves'' this trope.

** Celica from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden Gaiden/Echoes]]'' is a [[LadyOfWar gracefully badass]] leading lady who leads her own army and charges into battle with both her sword and magic skills.

* Krystal is not supposed to be an action girl, because she can not fight (also she is extremely overrated character and useless in relation to Star Fox series in general). Period. Though if someone can be called action girl by her temper, then Krystal might be considered as such. But as was stated previously, Krystal is more of a FauxActionGirl of the only two tropes listed. She also can be rarely seen on-screen compared to other characters and works more like a DamselInDistress.

Added DiffLines:

** The known Velvet Room attendants are mostly female, and they are among the setting's most powerful characters; Elizabeth from ''3'', Margaret from ''4'', and Justine and Caroline from ''5'' can be fought as {{Bonus Boss}}es, and they ''will'' most certainly kick your ass.
