After last week’s post, I felt bad for the girls. As a girl, I don’t feel qualified to comment on girl cartoon hotness, but I can comment on their badassness. These are my favorite female cartoon characters.
5. Toph, Avatar: The Last Airbender
Toph is the greatest earthbender in the world. She invented metalbending and founded the super badass metalbender police force of Republic City. She learned earthbending from giant mole creatures. Her whole life is like one big list of awesome.
4. Sailor Jupiter, Sailor Moon
Sailor Jupiter was the best Sailor Scout. She got to summon lightning!
3. Korra, The Legend of Korra
Korra is so awesome. She speaks her mind, goes after what she wants, and fights to protect those she loves. She makes her Avatar past lives proud. Also…look at those muscles. Girl is ripped.
2. Rapunzel, Tangled
I love this movie. SO. FREAKING. MUCH. Rapunzel is confined to her tower, but when the chance comes to finally see the outside world, she makes it happen. Not to capture the guy, but to learn about something she’s been wondering about her whole life. I love a princess with agency.
1. Mulan, Mulan
Mulan is the definition of a kick-ass female. She dresses up as a man and goes to war to save her father even though she knows the discovery of the truth means execution. She saves her entire country by actually using her brain. In short: she’s awesome.
