Strongest female characters, what does that mean?
To me a strong female character in gaming is someone who can endure pain, damage you physically, mentally or spiritually.
She has to have goals and once she sets her mind on something she will achieve it.
1. Ellie (The Last Of Us)
Ellie is a brave young female who has grown up in a post-apocalyptic world, fighting for survival is the only thing she knows.
Hearing stories from her mentor “Joel” about what the world use to be like before the epidemic is a fairy tale to her.
Ellie is a survivor and true product of her environment.
2. Samus Aran (Metroid)
Raised to become a warrior, Samus Aran is a shining example of what it means to be a bad-ass female character.
Armed to the teeth in her power suit. Players thought of her to be a male but they were completely wrong.
Whether we think she is male or female she is still going to kick ass in that suit.
3. Alyx Vance (Half Life 2)
Alyx Vance is the best example that you don’t need some skin tight clothing showing off every part of the body to be a strong female.
There is no reason for her to be wearing some absurd dress in order to keep some filthily people interested in her.
Alyx Vance is smart and funny, she is simply a breath of fresh air.
4. Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)
If you know Lara then you must have witnessed the brutal things she’s gone through.
Lara is an adventurer, someone who likes to explore and study the world but her journey is brutal!
Falling on spikes, being tossed around like a doll and constantly getting tortured is just another one of Lara’s adventures.
Lara knows what pain really feels like.
5. Cereza (Bayonatta 2)
Fighting demons and mythical creatures Cereza can do it all.
Although Cereza’s ridiculous clothing can make you think she is not worthy of the list.
Her power is just incredible, fighting creatures from the abyss and slaughtering them if they’re in the way.
Cereza is a fun character to be around and we can all do with some more fun.
