: Kate the alpha wolf.
Alpha and Omega : Audrey Ramirez, the mechanic.
Atlantis: The Lost Empire : Jenna is willing to fight a furious bear far larger than she is and has no qualms with standing up to Balto Steel, something many of the male dogs in the film are too afraid to do. Sadly, she ends up fading into the background in the other two films. Her daughter Aleu in the second movie also gets to be badass, but unfortunately she quickly falls into Faux Action Girl territory.
has Penny (the onscreen version, anyway), particularly in the opening. Mittens has her moments as well.
Bolt : Holly Shiftwell
Cars 2 : Princess Kyra, who is an exceptional hand-to-hand fighter, is very skilled with a staff and kali sticks, and can wield Dragons Fire And Ice .
friggin' fire : Red Puckett is a freaking BEAST in a hand-to-hand fight.
Hoodwinked : Astrid and Ruffnut.
How to Train Your Dragon : Esmeralda, who, during the Festival of Fools, successfully fights off several of Frollo's guards, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame is the one to rescue a wounded Phoebus from drowning the river after he's shot by said guards in a later scene.
: Elastigirl is of the The Incredibles Action Mom variety.
: Tigress and Viper.
Kung Fu Panda : Nala is a very strong fighter, and a fierce hunter. Even as a cub she's shown to have considerable skill, always trumping Simba during their bouts of playful roughousing. ("Pinned ya!")
The Lion King : Ariel is actually the first The Little Mermaid Disney Princess to be proactive and rescue her love interest, instead of the other way around. This is shown more in the TV show spinoff, however.
: Susan, a.k.a. Ginormica, Monsters vs. Aliens eventually becomes one of these after starting out as a Reluctant Monster.

: Abigail, a tomboyish woodmouse.
Once Upon a Forest : Giselle.
Open Season : Jewel, right up until Nigel injures her wing.
Rio : Peepers, the Rock-A-Doodle bespectacled teenage mouse.
: Princess Fiona has a Shrek Badass Action Girl moment in the first movie, but kind of stays behind in the second and third movies. Then the fourth movie rolls around, and the trope makes a glorious comeback.
: Rapunzel. For a Tangled Walt Disney Pictures Fairy Tale adaptation of a Princess tale, she may be bubbly. But she is the toughest human female character since .
Mulan : Toy Story 2 Jessie.
: Captain Amelia is a fabulous example, voiced by the lovely Treasure Planet Emma Thompson.
: EVE, with built-in nuclear cannon.
WALL•E : Sergeant Calhoun. Vanellope also counts, in a Wreck-It Ralph Badass Adorable kind of way.
