Best female brawler:
Seung Mina pretty much IS Soul Calibur for me. My favorite fighter and also the best moves that match my play style (which is why I might be skipping the new game. Seung Mina or GTFO for me.
Of course the very definition of female badass has to be Ms. Croft herself:
I love her even though she constantly dies horrible deaths at my hand.
But for me? My very, very favorite female badass is the mysterious ninja herself, she of the insatiable appetite for materia, Yuffie Kisaragi!!! Lara is traditional badass but Yuffie provides just the right amount of insanity that appeals to me personally.
Oh and a runner up to Yuffie?
Rikku from Final Fantasy 10. She just misses my top pick by "that much". And really it's Yuffie's manic grin at life that does it. Of course she can stomp your face and steal your materia because she is just that good.
That said, Rikku was the best character in one of my favorite games so that is saying a lot.
And yes, I picked the more modest FF10 version, yes the X-2 version wore less and is fun to look at but I like the more serious original Rikku better.
