Just finished Bayonetta 2 again and started Horizon: Zero Dawn. From that I got the idea for this thread.

Who are some of your favourite female characters in gaming? They can be NPC as well.

Kya from Kya Dark Lineage. When I was younger my mom bought that game specifically because you played as a women. It is a slower paced platformer/beat em up with some stealth which takes heavy inspiration from Rayman 2, it's the reason I didn't like Rayman 2 as much when I played it many years later. When video game girl arguements come up, I never get involved because they end in disaster, but I always think of Kya, but she's almost too obscure to bring up anyway.

She might be the best character in the game because of the power of her magic and the effectiveness of her dash attack.

And she has a nice ass.

I was shocked that it took five replies for Samus to get mentioned.

That she does, yes. Girl clearly does her squats.
Anyway, adding to the topic girls that didn't get a mention yet, but should.
Blaze Fielding from Streets of Rage kicks serious butt.
Maki Genryusai from Final Fight 2 was a good Guy replacement, but if you are playing Final Fight without picking Haggar you are playing wrong.
King from Art of Fighting 1 & 2 is such a butch and a great kick boxer.
Tina Armstrong is the only Dead or Alive girl who has the back to carry that much property.
Lara Croft was a worthy girl, despite her back problems from having too much property.
Leila Blitz was the bomb on Rolling Thunder 2.

I wonder how many people skipped her because "she's too obvious." I skipped her because, while I like Metroid and Super Metroid, there's not much to her character. I got to know Marin, Lucca, and Terra, which is why I mentioned them.

I am sure there are many more that I can't think of right at this moment. I like interesting characters that have personality and depth to them, and I just liked all of the above.

I thought about mentioning Celes. However, I thought I should just do one per game, and I like Terra more than Celes. Celes is great, though.

I pretty much skipped the obvious ones... But I missed one in my previous post who should be obvious only to me: Blazblue - Professor Kokonoe. My favorite character of all time, in just about anything, now that I think about it.

Mileena- MKII. Maybe not the greatest Storyline, but always my go-to character
Presea- Tales of Symphonia. ToS has incredibly deep and developed female characters, but the dark, mysterious, and tragic Presea is my pick for best one.
Midna- Twilight Princess. Midna is what I wish Navi was in OoT. That guardian spirit with an honest to god real personality.

Valeria from the Suikoden series, also Viki.
Karna from Shining Force II (thanks to a kinda busted healing experience bug, she literally can be the strongest character).
Pyra from Shining in the Darkness.
Meliadoul and Agrias, Final Fantasy Tactics.
Mai from King of the Fighters.

Oh, great calls on Valeria and Agrias. Both major misses on my part.
Falcon Rune? Amazing. Stasis Sword? Still an all-time favorite.
