So i'm currently researching strong female leads for a project!

I've got a pretty extensive list as it is but I like to go all out!
I'd love to get everyones suggestions for manga, anime, dramas and even movies with PHYSICALLY STRONG/ KICK - ASS female leads!
Theres a small list below of some of the more popular females I currently have one my list, any suggestions with woman who're similar or at least cool, tough and independent would be greatly appreciated!
I was hoping a large group of like minded people could help broaden my search!

Mikasa Acherman ( attack on Titan)


Korra (The legend of Korra)


Morgiana ( Magi- The labyrinth of magic)

Tsukushi Makino from Hana Yori Dango's first interaction with her love interest is to punch him.


Edit: Sorry I couldn't find the picture from the manga, but I'm sure it's around.
Edit #2: I was wrong, upon further investigation, she kicked him, but they often say in the manga: "this girl is strong!" so I figured she still counts even if she's not Mikasa.

Saya (Blood franchise)
Revy (Black Lagoon)
Shiki Ryougi (Kara no Kyoukai)
Re-l (Ergo Proxy)

Most of the Monogatari females.

A lot of harems. I am serious about that.

There are two types of harems :

1) Nice but growing main character / Super Strong Female Characters.
2) Super Strong Male Character / Dependent Female Characters.

Here are a few that go under category 1.

1) Nisekoi - Chitoge and Tsugumi are really strong.
2) Infinite Stratos - The cast consists of 1 male character (the MC)... he is the weakest character in the series.
--- Houki has proven that she is also stronger than Ichika even while not piloting a robot.
3) Sekirei - Every girl
4) ToLoveRu - same as Infinite Stratos
5) Trinity Seven - same as Infinite Stratos
6) Blast of Tempest - Both Aika and Hakaze are much stronger than the majority of the cast.
7) Nyaruko-san - The girls are all human manifestations of lovecraftian elder gods.

The most badass (not over the top) female character that I can recall off the top of my head at least is
Shiki Ryougi (Kara no Kyoukai/ Boundary of Emptiness)
her mental strength and physical toughness is incredible

Pretty much all of the above! I'm looking for admirable characters.
They don't all have to be physically strong, i'm also looking for personalities as well, so any suggestion would be awesome!
