She's not a heroine, in fact, she's almost a villain. But in the end she is just a realistic character who has valid reasons for being mislead into doing things that are actually bad, and wrong to do.

When was she ever cowardly?

i consider land mines to be automatically cowardly but maybe that's just because the united states won't agree to stop using them

Yeah, pretty much what Friday said.  I don't care how realistic she is, and if you find her to be realistic, she makes an even worse example of "girl power."

How can you have a list like this and leave out Gran'ma Ben from Bone?



She fought countless monsters and soldiers, was able to keep her cool in the face of a dragon, and brought a land at war into an age of (relative) peace. And that was when she was young.

Age didn't slow her down either. It just made her tough. She's able to punch through walls, fight giant lions to a standstill and run hundreds of miles without breaking a sweat. She's also strong in the dreaming, as all of her line are. She was able to help her granddaughter Thorn realize her destiny in defeating the The Locust, eternal enemy of all living things.

Oh yeah, and she's a queen.

Come to think of it, Thorn is pretty hardcore too.

Thorn got boring once she found out her destiny, but Gran'ma Ben was always pretty cool.

Using explosives against monstrously huge creatures, the smallest of which are two-to-three times your mass might be an exception to that rule?

Somehow I am surprised that you don't justify yourself.
Why does using traps automatically make you cowardly?

Is it mines? Are you upset because the aftermath of shortsighted military policies are maiming and killing innocents?

yes, the fact that mines maim and kill innocents long after the reason they were put down fades would be the primary but not only reason i don't like them

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?

While calling Eboshi a warrior or heroine is a bit of a stretch, she's definitely a heroic character because of what she accomplishes in spite of her relative frailty.
She's heroic because (even if she's wrong to do so) she tangles with creatures and powers that should be able to destroy her and everything she cares about without a second thought, but thanks to her efforts, iron town survives and prospers.

EDIT:
I guess what I'm saying is, none of her goals are particularly selfish, nor does she have the power to achieve those goals without using "cowardly" traps. I don't call Odysseus cowardly/unheroic because all he was able to do was blind the cyclops and flee.

EDIT EDIT: Though his goals are pretty selfish, when I think back on them.

Killing the spirit of the forest is pretty selfish, last I heard.
