The 10 Best Female Warriors in TV History

By Beth Mishler Jul 18, 2013

6 of 11

Buffy Summers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

A list like this without Buffy is like a Christmas tree with no topper. While she wasn’t the first or the last butt-kicking female heroine, she’s arguably the best. Look how much she had on her plate: vampires, demons (some of them very vengeful ones) vampire bfs, Hellmouth, higher education—and she took it all on with a smooth mix of martial arts badassery and a savvy wit that was all her own. And, like her tombstone said: She saved the world. A lot.
