* While the Triple Tails entry into SMASH was to ultimately result in a showdown between The World Famous Wrestling/{{Kana}} and her self described ArchNemesis Syuri, the the first targets of the Tails were Makoto and Yusuke Kodama, demonstrating no member of the roster was safe. After Wrestling/YoshihiroTajiri ran off the assailants, Kana and The Sexy Purple Sisters made their mission the elimination of him and any other old men like him they could find. Triple Tails endured after the SMASH promotion folded, spreading across the Japanese circuit, adding Ayumi Kurihara, Mika Iida, and Shu Shibutani to their ranks in the process.[[/folder]]

* Lariska from ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' is an energetic ninja-like bounty hunter/assassin. The leader of the Dark Hunter organization could only keep her in check by cutting off her left arm as punishment, [[ArtificialLimbs replacing it with a robotic one]]. Not really a PunchClockVillain, as she will work for the good guys, but not enjoy it. Sadly, [[ToylessToylineCharacter we don't know what she looks like]].

** Mikasa Ackerman actually has some darker shades, too. She developes over the course of the series and obviously holds some strong morals dear to her, but as soon as Eren is in danger she is willing to slice up pretty much anyone, friend or foe without a second thought to protect him.

[[GirlWithPsychoWeapon She has been known to carry around knives]] and, while '''not''' villainous (she's more childish and extremely jealous/obsessive than evil), is often portrayed as having darker motives than the other {{Action Girl}}s in the series, plus she has a HairTriggerTemper and exhibits strange behavior.

* Nena Trinity from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]'', though she's more of a ''Dark Female Gundam Pilot''.
** Considering that Nena has only actually been able to kill stationary (like the wedding) or otherwise helpless (like [[spoiler: Wang's shuttle]]) targets, she could actually qualify as a FauxActionGirl rather than a Dark Action Girl. The fact that [[spoiler: Louise eventually kills her in [[CurbStompBattle a brutally one-sided fight]] certainly doesn't help matters.]] Even moreso, Throne Drei is built specifically for [[MissionControl stealth and support purposes]], therefore, asking it to actually kick ass is like sending in a [[SquishyWizard squishy]] [[WhiteMage cleric]] to deal with tough enemies that can deal a lot of damage.
** Also, we may be able to include Soma Peries and [[spoiler: Louise Halevy]] (from the second season on).
** Hilling Care ''definitely'' qualifies for this, both inside and outside of a mobile suit. She technically lost against the [[spoiler:00 Raiser]], but she did put up a big fight.
** Kycillia Zabi of the original ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' is a Dark Action Girl[=/=]LadyOfWar cross. And [[AxCrazy Four]] [[SuperSoldier Murasame]] of ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' and Stella [[PsychopathicManchild Loussier]] of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'' are Dark Action Girl[=/=]{{Tykebomb}} blends.
*** Subverted by Rosamia Badam from ''Zeta Gundam'', however. She looks and acts like one at first, but soon we find out that she's actually a badly-damaged PsychopathicWomanchild when not fighting.
** Dorothy Catalonia and Lady Une of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]''. The former's a BloodKnight and TheStrategist with latent DeathSeeker tendencies, the latter's TheBaroness, TheDragon, and a PsychoSupporter to BigBad Treize Khushreneda, whom she does most of the dirty work for. Both of them prefer to avoid physical combat, but when forced to fight, are quite competent, with Une being a crack shot and a capable pilot, while Dorothy is absolutely lethal with a rapier.
** Other Dark Action Girls include [[BigBad Haman Kahn]] of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Gundam ZZ]]'', who's probably one of the most dangerous pilots in the entire franchise as well as a MagnificentBitch par excellence, [[{{Yandere}} Sarah Zaviaroff]], Lyla Mira Lyla, Mouar Pharaoh, and [[ColonelBadass Natasha Zaviaroff]] (one of the few ''not'' villainous examples).
** Then, ''[[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Victory Gundam]]'' gives us several. We have Lupe Cineau, Fuala Griffon, Renda de Baroma (an AntiVillain version, as well as the female half of BattleCouple with ColonelBadass Duker Iq), and '''especially''' [[spoiler: the FaceHeelTurn-ed Katejina Loos.]]
** Carta Issue of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' appears to be this on the first glance, except she's an [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Inffectual Sympathetic]] AntiVillain. While she is capable of mopping her foes if an opportunity was given, she frequently loses miserably because of her [[TalkingIsAFreeAction obsession with honour]] when her foes are CombatPragmatist having no qualms about killing her off guard, and she [[TooDumbToLive repeated this mistake for three times]].
* Although Rizelle of ''Manga/ChronoCrusade'' prefers to use [[PeoplePuppets her powers]] to get other people to do her dirty work for her, when confronted by [[ActionGirl Rosette]], she proves herself to be one of these, using her [[RazorFloss marionette strings]] and FemmeFatalons to cause a massive amount of ({{clothing|Damage}}) damage in the process.



* ''Anime/GunXSword'''s Fasalina, who (unlike the only other girl in her group, Melissa, who was merely confused) fully embraced the methods of The Claw and, most of the time, puts up a damn good fight against the heroes.

Then [[NotUsingTheZWord "They"]] came, which gave her the perfect excuse to use it - 'cuz Saeko is an AxCrazy BloodKnight, who [[OrgasmicCombat literally gets off]] ''[[InterplayOfSexAndViolence on violence.]]'' Which she openly confessed to Takashi, when she told him how she'd once beaten a would-be rapist within an inch of his life... and enjoyed it. Not because he tried to rape her, but because of [[SexIsViolence the euphoric glee she got from beating the ever living sh*t out of someone]] without restraint. And she's '''[[{{CuteAndPsycho}} GOOD]]''' at it. Which is why Takashi's glad she's on ''their'' side and regards her as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eg-VEeYhvL4 a necessary evil.]]
* ''Manga/InuYasha'': Kagura started off as this and eventually [[HeelFaceTurn softened]] via CharacterDevelopment into an AloofAlly of the good guys that fitted the [[IceQueen cynical]] version of a {{Heel Face Turn}}ed Dark Action Girl; strictly speaking, she was a Dark Action Girl due to being enslaved to the BigBad, which made her a BrokenBird as well.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has its fair share, from Miss Double Finger (and arguably Miss Merry Christmas) to Kalifa. Boa Hancock initially appeared to be this, but mellowed out over time (though she can still be cruel to enemies). The sole female member of the [[PsychoRangers Blackbeard Pirates]], Catarina Devon, counts.

Both of them prefer to avoid physical combat, but when forced to fight, are quite competent, with Une being a crack shot and obviously holds some strong morals dear a capable pilot, while Dorothy is absolutely lethal with a rapier.
** Other Dark Action Girls include [[BigBad Haman Kahn]] of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Gundam ZZ]]'', who's probably one of the most dangerous pilots in the entire franchise as well as a MagnificentBitch par excellence, [[{{Yandere}} Sarah Zaviaroff]], Lyla Mira Lyla, Mouar Pharaoh, and [[ColonelBadass Natasha Zaviaroff]] (one of the few ''not'' villainous examples).
** Then, ''[[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Victory Gundam]]'' gives us several. We have Lupe Cineau, Fuala Griffon, Renda de Baroma (an AntiVillain version, as well as the female half of BattleCouple with ColonelBadass Duker Iq), and '''especially''' [[spoiler: the FaceHeelTurn-ed Katejina Loos.]]
** Carta Issue of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' appears
to her, but as soon as Eren is in danger be this on the first glance, except she's an [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Inffectual Sympathetic]] AntiVillain. While she is willing to slice up pretty much anyone, friend or foe without capable of mopping her foes if an opportunity was given, she frequently loses miserably because of her [[TalkingIsAFreeAction obsession with honour]] when her foes are CombatPragmatist having no qualms about killing her off guard, and she [[TooDumbToLive repeated this mistake for three times]].
** Nena Trinity from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]'', though she's more of
a second thought to protect him. While most others join the Survey Corps to ''Dark Female Gundam Pilot''. Considering that Nena has only actually fight for mankind, Mikasa couldn't care less if Eren hadn't joined.
* Every female villain in
been able to kill stationary (like the ''Anime/PrettyCure franchise'' does count to wedding) or otherwise helpless (like [[spoiler: Wang's shuttle]]) targets, she could actually qualify as a degree, but the most outstanding example is [[Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure FauxActionGirl rather than a Dark Precure]] who Action Girl. The fact that [[spoiler: Louise eventually kills her in [[CurbStompBattle a brutally one-sided fight]] certainly doesn't rely on MonstersOfTheWeek.
* Pirotess from ''Anime/RecordOfLodossWar'', a female dark elf who serves as the villainous counterpart to the high elf on the heroes' side, Deedlit.
* The VillainProtagonist Lucy/[[spoiler:Kaede]] from ''Manga/ElfenLied''. Mariko
help matters.]] Even moreso, Throne Drei is built specifically for [[MissionControl stealth and [[spoiler:her four clones]], too. All of them have Vectors support purposes]], therefore, asking it to actually kick ass is like sending in a [[SquishyWizard squishy]] [[WhiteMage cleric]] to deal with tough enemies that can cut people into pieces.
* Saori, Kikako
deal a lot of damage.
%% so, Nena is this or not?
*** Also, we may be able to include Soma Peries
and Mako Fujisaki/Valkyria [[spoiler: Louise Halevy]] (from the second season on).
*** Hilling Care ''definitely'' qualifies for this, both inside and outside of a mobile suit. She technically lost against the [[spoiler:00 Raiser]], but she did put up a big fight.
* Zorin Blitz and Rip Van Winkle
from ''Manga/BrynhildrInTheDarkness''. Saori can cut people into pieces, Kikako has a powerful BreathWeapon, and Valkyria has an arsenal of powers ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}''. Both are Nazi Vampires that can kill people. enjoy death and destruction.
* ''Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead'': Before [[ZombieApocalypse the outbreak]], Saeko Busujima was the captain of her school's Kendo Club, so she was already proficient with a sword. Then [[NotUsingTheZWord "They"]] came, which gave her the perfect excuse to use it - 'cuz Saeko is an AxCrazy BloodKnight, who [[OrgasmicCombat literally gets off]] ''[[InterplayOfSexAndViolence on violence.]]'' Which she openly confessed to Takashi, when she told him how she'd once beaten a would-be rapist within an inch of his life... and enjoyed it. Not because he tried to rape her, but because of [[SexIsViolence the euphoric glee she got from beating the ever living sh*t out of someone]] without restraint.
And she's '''[[{{CuteAndPsycho}} GOOD]]''' at it. Which is why Takashi's glad she's on ''their'' side and regards her as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eg-VEeYhvL4 a necessary evil.]]
* ''Manga/InuYasha'': Kagura started off as this and eventually [[HeelFaceTurn softened]] via CharacterDevelopment into an AloofAlly of
the one who actually enjoys killing.
* N'rala/Nurara from "Captain Future"... as far as
good guys that fitted the zeitgeist allowed it. The Captain once [[WouldHitAGirl floored [[IceQueen cynical]] version of a {{Heel Face Turn}}ed Dark Action Girl; strictly speaking, she was a Dark Action Girl due to being enslaved to the BigBad, which made her with a karate chop]] and commented "You're just a woman after all".BrokenBird as well.



* Zorin Blitz and Rip Van Winkle from ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}''. Both are Nazi Vampires that enjoy death and destruction.

to:

* Zorin Blitz and Rip Van Winkle Evangeline from ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}''. Both are Nazi Vampires ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', before her HeelFaceTurn. Not that she'd [[{{Tsundere}} ever admit to having made one]].
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has a load of bait-and-switch Dark Action Girls who [[FauxActionGirl sometimes don't live up to their initial posturing]] or pull a whiplash-inducing HighHeelFaceTurn, but the standout is Tayuya, the flute-playing, SirSwearsALot genjutsu expert of the Sound Four, who easily cows her AxCrazy coworkers, punches out the eponymous hero, and demonstrates, perhaps better than anyone in the series, save Uchiha Itachi, why genjutsu is ''not'' the "soft" one of the three main ninja skill sets. She then goes toe to toe with Shikamaru, the smartest guy in the whole series, and proceeds to back him into a corner and break his nigh-unbreakable binding jutsu with sheer brute force and bloody-mindedness. The only thing that stops her is having a forest dropped on her courtesy of Temari, a {{Badass}} ActionGirl whose idea of a "cat fight" is breaking her opponent's spine and then tossing them across the room.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has its fair share, from Miss Double Finger (and arguably Miss Merry Christmas) to Kalifa. Boa Hancock initially appeared to be this, but mellowed out over time (though she can still be cruel to enemies). The sole female member of the [[PsychoRangers Blackbeard Pirates]], Catarina Devon, counts.
* Sabrina and Lorelei of ''Manga/PokemonSpecial''. Interestingly enough, both of them have joined forces with the protagonists at some point due to an EnemyMine situation; in fact, Sabrina does so ''against'' Lorelei.
* Every female villain in the ''Anime/PrettyCure franchise'' does count to a degree, but the most outstanding example is [[Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure Dark Precure]] who doesn't rely on MonstersOfTheWeek.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' has [[{{Jerkass}} Ky]][[FieryRedhead ouko]] [[PsychoForHire Sakura]]. She [[CharacterDevelopment gets]] [[TookALevelInKindness better]], to the point of even [[spoiler:pulling a MercyKill[=/=]HeroicSacrifice so that Sayaka (who she has become very sympathetic toward) doesn't have to [[DyingAlone die alone]], even admitting that part of the reason she became a MagicalGirl in the first place was because she wanted to protect someone.]]
* Pirotess from ''Anime/RecordOfLodossWar'', a female dark elf who serves as the villainous counterpart to the high elf on the heroes' side, Deedlit.
* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'':
** Any of the Sailor Animamates from the last season. Sailor Animamates were the servants of BigBad Sailor Galaxia, who was hunting down Star Seeds/Sailor Crystals across the universe. [[spoiler:They were all once good, but Sailor Senshi become evil when they lose their Sailor Crystals]].
** The Doom and Gloom Girls, Queen Beryl's last and strongest warriors from the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]], who very nearly succeeded in defeating the Sailor Senshi.
** Also the Ayakashi Sisters, {{Evil Counterpart}}s of the Inner Senshi and pretty competent combatants. [[spoiler: In the anime, however, they have a collective HeelFaceTurn.]]
* ''Sands of Destruction'' features a couple, though who and to what extent varies by adaptation:
** In [[Manga/SandsOfDestruction the manga]], VillainProtagonist Morte is a gleeful OmnicidalManiac whose favorite things include [[MadBomber bombs]], StuffBlowingUp, and [[BloodKnight hitting things]] with her {{BFS}}.
** In [[Anime/SandsOfDestruction the anime]], Morte softensu into an ActionGirl with a DarkAndTroubledPast, but [[TheGunslinger Rhi'a]] takes her place, preferring to shoot first and not bother to ask questions later. Naturally, the two of them end up fighting quite often, but rather than being a DesignatedGirlFight, it's more about pitting two of the best fighters against each other.
* Karinka from ''Anime/SteelAngelKurumi'' toes the line. She beats another main character, and lives primarily so she can destroy the main character and steal her boyfriend. Oh, yeah, she curses like a sailor, too.
* Adiane from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' beats down an entire brigade on land and [[MoreDeadlyThanTheMale is the most violent and psychotic member of the Beastmen Generals]]. Her Gunmen even brings to mind VaginaDentata.
* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' features several of these, all deadly Ghouls
that enjoy death playing with their food and destruction.killing anyone that gets in their way.
** [[VillainousGlutton Binge Eater]] Rize Kamishiro, a serial predator that targets attractive young men and enjoys "gently scrambling" their insides.
** The series ''loves'' pulling a SamusIsAGirl, with the major threats of the side-stories ''Jack'' and ''Joker'' both revealed to be women.
** Perhaps the greatest example in the series is the legendary HeroKiller, the [[spoiler: One-Eyed Owl]]. She is considered the most dangerous Ghoul in Tokyo, a brilliant EvilOverLord, and so dangerous that only [[TheAce Arima]] has been able to take her on in battle.
** The sequel introduces another in the form of Nutcracker, another deadly fighter with a preference for male victims. [[GroinAttack Guess why they call her that]].

* In ''Animation/GuardianFairyMichel'', Lady Salome uses robots and fairies to fight Kim and Michel.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', thirteen year old Vriska Serket is an murdering egomaniac- the most violent, sadistic, and remorseless of all the trolls and is considered evil even by the standards of her barbaric planet. She is responsible for [[spoiler: the deaths of thousands of trolls, as well as a teammate, and for seriously crippling two of her "friends" (and later killing one). She also purposefully facilitated a chain of events that led to an indestructible demon to be created and kill many, many more people- just because she wanted to have the glory of killing said demon]]. She's also among the most powerful characters in the comic. Later, however, she begins to realize that [[spoiler: [[TragicVillain her upbringing was what caused her to become like this]], as she was forced to hunt other trolls to sate the hunger of her spider-monster custodian, under threat of death]]. For the first time, she also feels true remorse after [[spoiler: killing one of her friends]]. Her contact with [[spoiler: and romantic interest in]] [[ThePowerofFriendship John also helps her see]] the error in many of the things that she's done. However, [[spoiler: just as she comes to the conclusion that [[HeelFaceTurn she doesn't want to kill or hurt people anymore]], she is killed by [[ActionGirl Terezi]] in order to save the remaining trolls, as her plan to fight Jack Noir would have resulted in their deaths]]. As a consequence she has become [[BaseBreaker one of the most controversial characters in the fandom]]. Later, we encounter Vriska in a dream bubble [[spoiler: two years after her death]]. [[HeelFaceTurn She's changed quite a bit.]]
