Hell hath no stylish, kickass fury like a woman. Period. For this list, we’ll be celebrating the best leading ladies in video games. We’ll only be discussing women who are the main, playable characters of their game. We also won’t be including customizable characters as making them female is optional, not canonical. Welcome to, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Female Protagonists.

  1. no honorable mentions? I can think of more female heroes that deserve at least that much.
    Aurora from Child of Light, Zuzou from Legend of Dark Witch, Katrielle from Layton’s Mystery Journey, June from Star Gladiators

  2. Hate it that neither of them are on the list, but at least I can give a shout out to Ellie from The Last of Us and Heather Mason from Silent Hill.
