Strong Female Characters: Zero to Heroine (Orphans Edition)

Taki (Soul series)

A Japanese orphan taken in and raised by the Fu-Ma Ninja clan, Taki is a skilled ninja, spy, blacksmith, and demon huntress with a soul fueled by honor. She also holds the prestige of being a member of the Soul series' debut cast – explaining why her absence from the Soulcalibur V roster caused such an upset.

Her fighting style revolves around speed and maneuverability, utilizing swift kicks and her trademark kodachi to whittle down her opponents, all the while gracefully dodging their attacks. She's prone to blowing unsuspecting players into smithereens and pile-driving the remains. When not locked into the best 3 out of 5, she's tracking down evil swords and telling people how ignorant they are, or doing some hardcore ninja parkour.

With such a large fanbase, Taki is undoubtedly an iconic character and a certified boss. She's also unnaturally well-endowed, which is, unfortunately, the biggest contributor to her fame.
