We've had some good examples of such characters, both protagonists (Balsa) and antagonists (Satsuki). I would like to propose a character who might not traditionally be considered strong: Sheska (Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood).

No, she's not particularly physically powerful, swift of foot, skilled with a weapon, a charismatic figure, brilliant, or brave. Yes, she's a meganekko moe dojikko librarian character. But Sheska has a talent which gives her a functional role beyond serving as a love interest which is absolutely central to the plot's advancement, she isn't the only female character of significance, she's portrayed sympathetically, she competently overcomes legitimate challenges, and her development is about increasing her self-confidence. It's about personal growth for the sake of personal growth, and hers is growth which takes place without being able to rely on any particular super power.

I could've gone the easy route and suggested Hawkeye or Armstrong, but I felt Sheska deserved a shout-out.

i would have committed suicide if someone didn't say Kagura. I have two votes. First is Kagura



Second, (there is argument over this characters gender. However, it was never officially confirmed and given its apperance in the Anime, "prominent bust" i will go under the pretence it being female)

Is that...Kirika from Noir? (I am really just guessing, I'm probably wrong...)

Also, Erza Scarlet from Fairy Tail, though Hilda from Beelzebub and Kagura from Gintama are definitely up there for me as well.

Someone else already mentioned Re-L from Ergo Proxy, which was my first choice, so I guess I'll mentioned someone else.



Relena Peacecraft from Gundam Wing. She has a strong will that most people just don't have, and she never gives up on her ideals despite the great political intrigue that surrounds her. She doesn't seem strong at first, but after recently rewatching the series I realized how strong she really is.

I'll agree with Balsa from Moribito.

One of the strongest and coolest heroines I've seen in a while. Plus, she didn't really have "superhuman" powers or impossible speed / power - she was just really good.

Shinobu (Kiss-Shot Acerola-Orion Heart-Under-Blade)



Her fully aged form doesn't get much screen time, but you know for a fact that you don't wanna mess with her.
