Susannah Dean, and not because she is the main female in Dark Tower, it's because she is strong and powerful even though she is handicapped physically and has multiple personalities, she strongly made it through a LOT of crazy shit!
Very good choice. She was definitely not someone to mess with!
A very original character, probably one of the reasons I finished reading the series even though it sucked at the end.
Has to be Miss Katie Scarlett O'Hara herself. She was so beautifully flawed, she never apologized and she took care of her family (okay, herself too) A strong take no prisoners woman!
I'll have to go with Stephanie Plum from the numbers series of books (like "One For The Money") by Janet Evanovich. Especially when the series was new.
I really like Samantha Stevens. She's sexy, quirky, pretty, tries hard, but can change any situation with the twinkle of her nose. Wouldn't that be grand?
I'm going to go with, Rowan Mayfair of Ann Rice's Mayfair Witches.
Neytiri all the way I love everything about that gal. She is my role model for sure.
Nynaene al'Mera from the Wheel of Time series...come to think I'd add every female character from that series lol. Robert Jordan really knew how to make a strong female character IMO.
Dagny Taggart in Atlas Shrugged. She was smart, independent, efficient and could out do the men in a man's world.
Call me a fanboy, but it'd have to be Samus Aran, the main protagonist of the Metroid series
Princess Zelda! i love the fact that she is an edgy elf like princess.
My favourite fictional female character would be Jane Eyre, that woman had it all.
There are far too many great female characters to choose from! One of my favorite is Namine from Kingdom Hearts, since she grows so much but doesn't have to become spunky or 'tough' to become strong in her own right (maybe that's why I have such respect for Gone with the Wind's Melanie as well).
That being said, my favorite female character from a more popular medium would probably be Katniss Everdeen because she was so strong and caring. I think she's a great contemporary character for young girls to look up to.
Uh...'scuse me. Not laughing at the question. Laughing at the difference in viewpoints on Nynaeve from The Wheel of Time (Robert Jordan) series. NOT my kind of girl; Lan can have her (as if I or anyone else could come between those two).
But I do have a favorite character, and she IS from the same series: Min. No wizardly type powers, but a powerful seer, handy with a knife, and all girl at the same time. That girl, I would not kick out of bed for eating crackers.
Second place: Katniss Everdeen of Hunger Games. (Not the actress in the movies. I've only read the books.)
Anne of Green Gables, definitely! Such a zest for life in all her intense perceptions of it at any given moment she has; I just love that "aliveness."
For me its a toss up between Dana Scully and Buffy Summers, with Xena a close third, and my choices get geekier from there...
Lady Brienne, from Game of Thrones.
An ugly, male-looking women that follows knightly principles and fights for honor while being despised for her looks.
