Arya Stark, Game of Thrones

Sure, she’s like 12 and weighs 50 pounds soaking wet.  But she’s good with a bow, deadly with a knife, and skilled enough with a sword to give advice to boys twice her size—like when she told Gendry to stand sideways because he would make a smaller target. Even the Hound sees and notes her ferocity. People may scoff if/when they see Arya on this list, and to them we’d ask: after all she has seen and done, would YOU wanna fight her?
