Strong Females over Moe girls by CVAKid003 Strong Females over Moe girls by CVAKid003
sigh. I see so much of this crap on anime.

It's true, though. I'm tired of all those girls with big eyes and the boobs to match, and that we're supposed to think that it's "cute." I'm tired of seeing female characters in media under men's thumbs. I'm really tired of seeing all "kawaii desu ne" female characters in anime getting molested, groped and harassed. It's not nice or cute at all. For once, can we just show female characters in a positive light? Why can't directors just create female characters with actual character rather than have them just there for fanservice? Why not give them actual character development? Why not have them star in their own story (which doesn't have a romantic sub-plot that takes over the entire damn story, thank you very much). 

(And that's also the reason why I do not like that annoying red-head from Haruhi or whatever. I don't even watch anime much, so I don't care what the title is, or that stupid girl's name)

My all time favourite female character definitely has to be agent Dana Scully from the X-Files... she is badass. I want to see more strong female characters in all forms of entertainment because they are much more interesting. :)

I agree, but I think that both have there place and that both should be able to have a sort of median.

As do I. It's so annoying when a character is overly sexualised or incredibly 'cute' - like Mikuru Asahina and Hinata Hyuuga (here come the bashers). I prefer characters like Ziva David from NCIS or Cacilie from Kyou Kara Maou.

:iconfuckyeahplz: You tell it. I couldn't agree with you more on overpopular cutesy girls who don't even try to defend themselves. Those type of female characters annoy me. I find it insulting , it's like they think that girls mostly act like that or guys always go for girls like that.


And big old props to you for putting Piper (Storm Hawks) and Katara  (The Last Airbender) on the list, they rock.  The rest of the characters of the characters are cool too (some of the others I don't know).

I am interested in what other female characters you support (if it's a long list then I've got plenty of time to spare).

I like Riza Hawkeye from FMA because she's a badass with a gun and her body type is relatively normal. I actually want to be a bit like her when I get older. :)

I actually don't mind over-sexualized women, as long as they are brave and strong.
Anyway, you can add Rukia from Bleach to the list :iconrukia-plz: .
Anna from Shaman King is another great example. [link]

(Literally all of my OC's would fit into the strong female category.)

Another strong female character: Meiko from Vocaloid.

What about Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII? She punched a guy, nearly twice her size, down to the ground.

Scary demonic little girls like Mandy from The Grim Adventures and Gaz from Invader Zim are enjoyable as well.

The kinds of girls I can't stand are the one from K-ON! because they have no depth, ranging from annoying to unlikeable. When the nightmarish moe-craze end?

Exactly! That's why I said "...and many more" to the list of Strong non-moe female characters.
And I agree with you on the girls of K-on. Personally, I think they're way too cutesy and under-developed to even be characters in the first place and her just made to give the audience something to "daaaawww" at.

Thank you for creating this! I love female characters who have more to them than just having a having pretty face or them having gigantic boobs to the point where they can't walk, because they have back problems. XD I love a female character who proves to actually be smart, strong willed, has a great level of badassness, but yet still have a heart of gold. :D

Once again, thank you!

Wow... I agree SO MUCH!

I never knew someday someone would agree with me.

You know what also pisses me off? The anime girls that have giant tits, a tape covering the breasts, and a "BADASS" and mysterious personality. Like TheOminousGman said... Chell(Portal 1 model) and Alyx Vance are perfect examples of strong female characters that could be incorporated in video games and in cartoons, because they are clothed enough, and (mainly Alyx) has a very very strong personality.

i'm fine with a character who's weak, but i don't want them weak to the point where they NEED others. or if they try to show it as a good thing, like it's "cute."

same here. like if they're weak because they don't work out, but can outsmart the enemy, then that's okay with me. or if they're mentally weak, i prefer them to be like, a little girl - would at least make more sense than a "full grown" person being really timid xD

yeah, like the little sisters from Bioshock. They need to be protected by the Big Daddies but only because they're still little and don't have to skills or items to defend themselves...so yeah, if they're weak mentally it would make sense if they were little children...

Oh yeah, I feel the same way about Mihuru from Haruhi Suzumiya. She annoyed the crap out of me...

I think every anime series I've ever seen has a girl like that. Minus Naruto, and maybe Ouran(aren't many girls in that anyways, though.)

Of course, I don't like the girls that sucker punch guys for stupid things, which I also see in pretty much every anime series. They don't strike me as strong...just bitchy.

Uh I've never seen one in real life dress up in a moe costume, but look up moe cosplay. A lot of the women do have small chests. So yes you can. Beside having a flat chest doesn't make someone unlucky. Did you ever concider they like it that way? I have a big chest, but I'm very smart. In a way I hate having a big chest because I get gawked at and they are heavy. If I don't wear a bra I can't walk. Who is actually unlucky? Its opinion. So its your opinion that they are unlucky. :)

I said unlucky because some girls may not want small chests. I didn't totally mean the entire population of flat-chested girls wanted bigger breasts. I know they may cosplay. I honestly did not grow up with smaller chested girls, so I've never seen a full-grown adult woman with smaller breasts. I do not want a big chest, because I know how many women that do have larger breasts may have a lot of pain sometimes and they can't help that people stare. Sorry if I seem/seemed rude, I am/was tired and I do not mean any meanness. :meow:

Oh don't worry you didn't come off rude. I was just stating it might be offensive the way you put it. Though I agree. Not all girls like to have flat chests. For those girls it might seem like they are unlucky. Where I am from I have seen all kinds of diversity too. I guess I can understand if it seems unnatural to you because you haven't seen girl's with smaller chest. I have. I also have seen very small people, deformed in some way or another people, people who are able to pop their joints out of place, and all sorts of other things. Sorry If I may have seemed like I was coming off rude.
