Can we have a thread to discuss our favourite female figures in media (TV, film, anime, novels, video games, etc) and real life? Can be because of any reason, either because you admire certain personality trait they have, because they inspired you in some way, because they have a nice body, idk any reason really, even if it’s just because you like their makeup.

probably zero people know about it, but if anyone's read the Da Vinci Code, the author Dan Brown has a serious thing for super intelligent, hot, strong women. They're in all his books, and he likes to emphasize a lot how freakishly smart they are. my favorite is Vittoria from the book angels and demons. She's a scientist who became the first person to create anti-matter in a laboratory, until the illuminati group stole it to use as a weapon of destruction against the Vatican. in a scene, she was kidnapped by an assassin who was first about to rape her, but she somehow managed to free herself from the binds and burned his back from behind with a fire torch

Have you read any other of his book aside from the Da Vinci Code? If so, any in particular you could recommend me?

I think Dita Von Teese is one of my favorite style icons. First time I saw her I thought she looked “fake” and tried way too hard, but the more I read about her, the more I came to actually admire how confident and unapolegetic she is and how much she doesn’t care about other people opinions.

There were two things she said in an interview that really struck a chord with me. The first one was how she loved artificial beauty and that she believed that what you’re not born with, you can create. The second one was something about how anyone can become glamorous and how it’s not about being naturally pretty. I don’t know, she just makes me feel empowered

Lara Croft, or more specifically Core Design-era Lara Croft. Yes, even the wonky Paris game. Everything went to shit after that and new Lara is not MY president.

Tomb Raider IV: The Last Revelation was my first video game with a female protagonist/first game in the TR series and I didn't have internet back then so I spent weeks figuring stuff out on my own. I literally remember every little dialogue from the first 2 levels to this day.

I loved (still do) how smart, independent and adventurous she was. She had a comeback for every monocle-popping side character chiding her for being 'most unorthodox!' and basically did whatever the fuck she wanted 24/7. I've also always wanted a live-in valet I could lock in the freezer.

I love Laura Palmer. I didn't appreciate her much when I first watched Twin Peaks because I just saw her as "the dead girl", but after reading the tie-in diary novel and watching Fire Walk With Me, I appreciate her character so much more.

Here are some of my favourite fictional women. So glad this was brought up because I was only discussing with my bf recently how I love watching Attack on Titan and The Walking Dead as they both feature women who weren't written to be physically/intellectually/skilfully inferior to their male companions. I just find media without badass women really exhausts and bores me.

I'll pretty much fall in love with any female character who follows the formula of starting off weak and grows strong after discovering their ~inner power~, witty/clever women, women who are masters of whatever skill they possess and women who diverge from traditional "feminine" roles.

Brienne is amazing and I find Gwendoline Christie incredibly attractive. When I was reading the book I thought she was going to become one of those “I was honorable once but the world changed me” characters so I was pleasantly surprised when she didn’t change despite all the shit that happened to her.

Shepard is one of my fave video game characters. I wasn’t into gaming until my boyfriend lent me Mass Effect so that was the first game with a strong female lead that I ever played, I guess that’s why I love it so much. She’s badass, strong, tough, a leader, heroic, and overall I find her very well written. Plus Jennifer Hale voices her.

Femshep makes Mass Effect's story so much more powerful imo, but I can't really find a reason why other than 'because she's a woman'. There aren't that many unique dialogue sequences either. Don't get me wrong, I love femshep to death, but it's difficult to figure out why the story hurts me more when I play as her. While Mark Meer wasn't terrible, playing as mshep almost breaks immersion for me lol. There's so much more to Hale's performance. I can't believe people actually hate on it.

This tends to be an unpopular opinion but one of my absolute favorites is Joan from Mad Men. Joan isn't perfect but she is so many thing I admire, the way she carries herself with so much confidence in that office, the way she knows the office politics well and glides through it like she's untouchable. Doesn't matter if the men are ogling her because she knows she's beautiful and sexy and it's not something she'll let them use to weaken her. I'm very shy, vulnerable, have no confidence and can't assert myself so seeing this woman have this position of power and respect and never showing her weaknesses, especially in that environment which could break a lot of women down really struck me. And the fact that she's glamorous and put together and walks into every knowing she's the most beautiful person there is inspiring. I'm a Peggy without the talent. I also love her character progression from marrying Greg to fulfill this perfect idea of how she's supposed to live her life to turning down Bob for love instead of an arrangement.

Joan always gets torn down because of the shitty things that happen to her and the whole thing with Jaguar but I think she handled it with as much grace as she could and kept her head held high. I hate people tearing down female characters for every single flaw they have or throw the character in the trash without trying to understand them.

Little bonus, she reminds me a little bit of Yennefer from the Witcher, who I also love to death. I admire those beautiful, strong, intelligent women that rarely show vulnerability or weaknesses.

My favorite is Princess Peach, I hate how in recent games she's portrayed as just some rag doll being dragged around and there just so Mario has someone to save. In some old Nintendo comics she's portrayed as a tough brave bitch and in her solo game too, she really had a personality.
I think she's so cute and feminine, and would be great to have tea with. When I was a kiddo she was always my favorite character to be, since at the time she was the only consistent female character you could play as.(which I'm glad has changed since now we have a wider variety of girl characters like Rosalina , Toadette etc..) I just wish Nintendo would do more with her character; Same with Zelda (who I also adore) she's interesting enough to have a game on her own

I really like Ciri from The Witcher (books/game). Pls no bully, I know she has a lot of negative traits but that's why I find her character interesting, since she's different from many main female characters in popular media. She isn't some idealized perfect role model but rather a realistic human, whose lifetime of experiences have shaped her in many ways for better or worse, even resulting in her acting entitled, arrogant, frustrated and angry, violent… She's also an example of how even someone who has done horrible things can have a lot of goodness in them too, as you see through the eyes of Yennefer and Geralt who love her to death and who she loves dearly in return.

Oh my God Oscar . . . she's such a well written character and seeing how she changes through the course of the manga/anime is fascinating. I really admire her androgyny, she embodied the best aspects of masculinity without denigrating womankind and grew to embrace her femininity without losing the 'masculine' characteristics that were deeply embedded in her character. This whole 'elegant, feminine gentleman tomboy' type of character may well have begun with her and may be relegated to eastern media but its an archetype I really, really like and wish I saw more of.

I would adore a remake of Rose of Versailles if only to have more people to talk to about it, its not only dead as doornails fandom it is so old it is difficult to convince people to give it a shot.

Natsu from 7seeds. When I first began to read the series (in high school) I really disliked her personality, but admittedly as an adult I have a lot in common with how she behaved. Over the course of the series it's amazing to see how much she and the rest of the characters grow accustomed to each other and try to overcome their flaws. She takes a lot of small steps to change herself but it really made me reflect about what I need to do for myself, too.

This chapter near the final volumes was particularly heartbreaking to read because she realized how much the events of the story have changed her from when she was living as a NEET.

Speaking of animated children's movie characters, my two favorites are Anya (from Anastasia) and Sophie (Howl's Moving Castle.)

I appreciate how strong, bold, and brave Anya is. I really liked how she wasn't a damsel in distress who needed saving, but rather an honest, headstrong, resourceful girl who wasn't afraid to be herself. I also really liked how important it was for her to find her family and feel like she belonged, because I often struggle with that.

I understand that Sophie sometimes doesn't get a lot of recognition for being a strong female character, especially since she's usually overshadowed by some of Miyazaki's other heroines. But I love Sophie because she's the most like me. Shy, quiet, and rather self conscious. But she's also very strong with a kind and gentle heart. I love how she was able to gain confidence in herself and her abilities.

I definitely like books-Ciri more. We experience her life from a little girl to a woman. In the game, you get a woman - but her story is the most interesting when she's a kid/teenager. The shit she went through, what she survived… and I liked her personality more - she was a little devil, indeed.

Where's San from Mononoke Hime, though? Oh my gods, I remember how I loved Mononoke Hime but was simultaneously scared shitless of it. But the whole philosophy left such an impact within me, it still resonates.
San is fierce and wild, but at the same time a good, caring person. I like how rough and untamed they made her, but without pretension or tryhardism, it's just who she is. There's no praise nor condemnation about it. I think she's a character that can't be replicate in the (pop)culture, she's the only of her kind.

I know everyone hates Misa but I actually really love her. She's so conniving and smart but doesn't show it. Her and Naomi Misora were the only characters I actually liked.

HxH girls are great. You can tell that Togashi wants them to be interesting characters with purpose outside being waifubait or overtly sexualized eye candy, which is a nice change from a lot of anime and manga and battle shounen specifically.

Sure, she has no dialogue aside for what the players chose but I like the options given and that they are always a little impish, like when she forces herself into Shinji's room. In the p3p artbook, there's a copy of the school newspaper with a gossip article calling her a 'koakuma' (little devil, it's used to describe cute and alluring girls) for charming so many guys lol. And ofc she can fight too. I just think she's cool and confident, I wish I could be friends with someone like her ahaha.

original series and EoE only. i identify with her so much on nearly every level. i've never since found a character i could find myself in so perfectly. her showing how she could find her own self-validation, try and find happiness, and fight back and not take anyone's bullshit, even through traumatic and rock-bottom moments makes me hold on to hope for myself and to try and pull through.

Fucking love Marie. Best female character I've come across in ages.

In general I miss the strong, sexy, independent women types in older anime. I mean like the women in Cowboy Bebop for example. I feel like they've all been replaced by moeblobs and other weak heroines.

Protip: this jacket and a tshirt are available on Galaxy Broadshop. Collab with Kyo from Dir en Grey.

I think now that the current director's moving on it's possible we'll get female main characters again. Hoping to god they do a female version for p5 for the vita, I know a lot of core fan base dudes that would easily preorder and buy day 1 for that over another The Golden Marie shoves her ass into every conversation bullshit.

I WAS JUST ABOUT TO REPLY ABOUT HOW MUCH I LOVE SAMUS
but ugh I think samus first became my favorite was when I was playing brawl and didn't think she was a girl. When I saw her final smash and how she was actually a girl I was in awe. I was young at the time too so it definitely left an impression. When I found out that she was revealed as a female at the very end of her first game i was once again, in awe, and could only imagine the reaction of other people (specifically males). The fact that such a tough, strong, and skillful character can be female is aweeeesome to me. It sucks that she's sexualized now tho, but I have to admit that I do have a MAJOR girl crush on her as well.

>that particular Peach
Anon, I totally agree with you. This particular manga/comic of Peach was just fantastic and by far my favorite. I was never a Disney Princess type girl, but thought Princesses should be like old Peach here.

I really wish this version would make a comeback, but they seemed to have solidified bimbo airhead Peach as the norm now. I really liked how intelligent she was in the cartoon as well.

Utena is also one of my favs. I really aspire to be like her. At least tumblr hasn't latched onto Utena like they have Sailor Moon so far.

It has more something to do with me rooting for the animals. She didn't give a shit how her actions might affect others. While yes she improved her villages and their lifes and gave people hope who never thought they would have that again (reason why I liked her in the beginning) she doesn't care about her surroundings.
Though I get that it's a different time in the movie so caring about nature isn't really a thing.
She is definetly a strong woman but there is just something that I hate about her.
Well written character though.

Miyazaki actually had some fantastic commentary about humans and nature in this interview: http://www.nausicaa.net/miyazaki/interviews/m_on_mh.html

Some interesting excerpts about Eboshi from the interview:

>Judging from her attire, Eboshi looks like a Shirabyoushi (prostitutes who danced in men's attire).

>M: I also have that image (about her). I think that she got there after going through considerable hardships. So from Eboshi's standpoint, she must feel that Ashitaka's karma is nothing.

>So she did go through a lot of hardships.

>M: Yes. I thought up a story that she was a wife of a Wako boss (Japanese pirates/smugglers who raided the Chinese and Korean coastlines), or something like that. And what Eboshi is trying to do is to build a paradise as she thinks of it. Hence, she is a person of the 20th century. She has a clear ideal and can take action. Well, I just think so (laughs).
