An Action Girl is a female {{Badass}} who is tough and kicks butt. DamselInDistress? Not her. She's featured in far more than the DesignatedGirlFight. Expect regular appearances in actions scenes, facing dangerous foes and deadly obstacles, and expect her to ''win.''

For the longest time in many cultures, {{Double Standard}}s in both fiction and real life meant that when it came to action and fighting, guys outnumbered girls. MenActWomenAre was the rule of thumb, which led to the Action Girl being a subversion of what was acceptable. As society has marched on, the view of this as a subversion has faded in some media, leading to stories where Action Girls are the norm rather than the exception, such as stories set in a WorldOfBadass, and especially a WorldOfActionGirls.
