Queens of Blades: Top 10 sword-swinging divas

1 of 13

Last week I did a top 10 list of gun-totting women in video games, but after a bit of research I found an even less represented group of females: sword maidens! Just about every top-10 list about masters of the blade in video games has a slew of beefed up males. Few of them - if any - have women! Seriously guys, women with swords are awesome too, right?

So today I'm going to fix that void, and fill it up with this top 10 list of sword-buckling heroines! To fit the criteria of this list, the character must rely on some form of bladed weapon during combat (excluding daggers), and be able to take on at least one enemy twice their size or multiple enemies at once.

With our criteria set, let's take a look at the Top 10 Video Game sword-swinging divas!

    Where's the Leona and Taki T_T there needs to be a part 2.

    I'm not really a big League of Legends fan, so Leona didn't really come to mind. In fact, I only knew about Fiora because of how publicized she is. As for Taki, I guess she could have fit into the list but daggers were sort of against the quota. (I suppose Taki's weapons are chokuto, hence short swords... but eh...)
