Lt. Ripley gets a + mostly because Sigourney is a great actress (whoops!) and because for having her first encounter with an xenomorph, she fucks its shit up then proceeds to give them a giant middle finger through the entire series.

Sarah Connor gets a + since she was the first of what became the generic hollywood gun toting tough empowered action woman archetype cool heroine I saw even if Terminator 2 gave me nightmares when I was a kid.

Revy scores a + because fuck fucking fucked fuckers fuck.

The Major is a + for Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, holy shit that woman's voice is amazing.

Samus gets a - because I think she's an amazingly bland character.

Xena is a + because Lucy Lawless was my waifu when I was still barely a teenager  :wuv: and got a lot of good characterization and beat up Ares by being too hot to trot.

Caska gets + because all things Berserk related are good (except for the lack of real ending in the anime).

Sasuka is a + for the aforementioned use of the bokken.

Chun-Li is a + since by Word of God, she's still either the strongest female in Street Fighter or damn near it.

Claire Redfield earns my eternal hate and gets -- because I cannot hate her enough.  In RE2, she spends a majority of the time chasing after a little girl, ignoring everything Leon says then turning around to ask him to do things for her.  In Code Veronica, I could sum her up as BAWWWWWWWWWWW I NEED MY BIG BROTHER WHINE WHINE WHINE STEEEEEEEVE.  If it was Jill, however, I would give her the ++.

I like Sigourney Weaver's work in documentaries.

I have to give Thorn, Gran'ma Ben, Mulan, Althena, Carmen SanDiego, Lt Ripley and Beatrix Kiddo pluses.

I'm giving Sara Conner, Samus, Kerrigan and San minuses.

My double plus goes to Faye Valentine, because <3.

My double minus goes to Xena for not doing her sidekick studiously avoiding any kind of sexual encounter.

Hello.

++
The Boss.  (God damn autoplay brings up a dead video for some reason.  Open a new tab, add "/watch?v=4qgdXLf6p1I" to the end of www.youtube.com.  Fuck.)

+
Lt. Ripley
Beatrix Kiddo
Samus (Almost voted =, but then I remembered one moment in Super Metroid that combined desperation, ferocity, and personal investment in a way that satisfied my standards.)

=
Haruhi Suzumiya
Beatrix of Alexandria
Chun-Li

-
Carmen Sandiego (Sorry, but she's a cipher.  She's notorious and good at what she does, yes, but I don't think that alone qualifies her for this list.)

I'll give ++ To Revy, just because.. I mean, fuck, she's nuts. But if i could I'd give +++ to Balalakia instead. :3

+ To the Major.

+ To Samus as the first awesome video game female.

+ To Caska for wearing a breastplate that doesn't conform to her tits.

- To Sonya, for being in such a terrible game.

Isn't that a grudge against mines, then? Would you have been OK with them if there were thousands of spring-loaded, buried spike traps?

no making mines low tech does not change the nature of what they are

traps which kill indiscriminately after the battle is over are not OK in my book

which by extension makes people who use them not OK in my book

so yes you are right, my grudge is against mines, technically, but the mines are inert traps that do not have the ability to lay themselves

so that would make my grudge apply to those who use them

Well yeah, but she was having sex with Ares first.

But if i could I'd give +++ and a hot dicking to Balalakia instead. :3

A++ would support this.

Sechs is actually just a clone of Gally from Battle Angel.  So, technically, she's Gally.  Except more of a hardass.

Admittedly, it's been a while since I watched Mononokehime, but all this talk about Eboshi's dishonourable use of landmines has got me wondering:

What landmines?

I don't remember that at all. Did they even have the technology for landmines? Every other explosive device they used was pretty clearly ignited by a fuse, even the super rifle. The closest thing to a "mine" that I can remember were those cinderblock bombs that they basically just dropped off a cliff.

Eboshi founded and commanded a town and its entire militia, provided a home and care for people the rest of civilisation wouldn't touch with a 10-foot pole, and stared down a god without batting an eye. She may not be particularly heroic but I'd say that's not too bad for a former prostitute. She didn't want the Shishigami's head for herself, she simply used the Emperor's decree as an opportunity to do what, in her mind, was necessary to protect her people. Let's not pretend the forest-spirits were completely innocent either.

I guess what I'm trying to say here is, to hell with Eboshi. ++ for Princess Kushana (manga version)



OH SHIT WE'RE ALL DEAD OH FUCK
