Top 50 Best Tall Actresses Of All Time
Top 50 Best Female Cartoon Characters Of All Time
Aishwarya-Posted Dec 19, 2021
Cartoons remind us of our childhood and carefree days. They always meant mindless and harmless entertainment for children and teenagers.
However, over time, these harmless and mindless cartoons became a very powerful tool to shape the psyche of people from a young age.
While some cartoons choose to spread environmental messages, some chose social and cultural messages for their cartoons.
Kids were encouraged to become strong like He-man and later Superman. Patriotism and valor were the messages kids learned from GI Joe cartoons.
In the same way, young girls also learned many valuable lessons from the female characters in cartoons.
Growing up, most young girls only knew about fairy tales like Cinderella, Snow White, Princess, and the Pea, etc.
At a time when Barbie dolls were a girl’s best friend, there came a revolution in the characterization of female cartoons.
We found characters with more intelligence, wisdom, bravery, etc., as against characters that were mere damsels in distress, pawns in the hands of witches and dragons.
Female characters were representing the hopes and aspirations of new-age girls, like Merida who likes archery better than sewing, or Belle who would save her father from the beast than choose a comfortable life, or Fiona who took the form of her true love and became an ogre.
ENTOIN offers its list of such beautiful, smart, brave, and selfless heroines of the cartoons we love to watch.
They are ready for any battle, whether it is the everyday social life like Daria or intergalactic wars like Ahsoka Tano or crime fighters like Velma Dinkley.
So, bring out your fluffy bunny slippers, get your strawberry milkshake ready with a bowl of caramel popcorn and get ready for a world of rainbows and unicorns.
50. Eliza Thornberry (The Wild Thornberrys)
Elizabeth ‘Eliza’ Thornberry is one of the main characters of the show The Wild Thornberrys.
She is a 12-year-old bespectacled girl who wears pigtails and has braces on her teeth.
She could be considered a geeky kid with her encyclopedic knowledge of animals and their physiology.
As a ten-year-old, she had an encounter with an African shaman that gave her the ability to speak to and understand animals.
This ability often makes her presumptuous that she is an expert in all matters related to animals.
Although she is proven wrong, she still can not help herself. Eliza is a loving person who likes to make friends and is very adventurous.
She is ready to go to any place that has animals and rushes headlong into any situation due to her curiosity.
She gets into trouble because of it but if it is for animal welfare and nature preservation, Eliza Thornberry is up for any fight.
This animal-loving attitude of hers makes her one of the best-loved cartoon characters.
49. Francine Frensky (Arthur)
Francine Alice Frensky is an athletic, artistic and tomboyish friend of Arthur. In appearance, Francine is a monkey with a bob hairstyle.
She is usually dressed in jeans or pants with shirts and formal tops. She hates things that are girly, like figure-skating and badminton.
Due to her tomboyish nature, Francine excels in all kinds of sports like soccer, American football, baseball, and more.
She also has a talent for singing and playing drums. Despite all her extracurricular activities, she still manages to get good grades.
Many times in the series, she is shown to put in hard work to complete her assignments and school work.
Given all her strong points, we would be amiss if we did not discuss her negatives, and she has a few of those.
She is brash and rude while expressing herself and is not your typical girly girl.
In one episode, her friends take up a challenge to tame her and succeed. She also tends to get too competitive and boastful when it comes to any sport.
These qualities make a believable person, and when she overcomes her flaws, she becomes even more lovable.
48. Elisa Maza (Gargoyles)
The previous two characters were school kids and teenagers, and the current character of Elisa Maza is an adult.
She is the police detective with the NYPD and a friend of the Gargoyles from the Manhattan Clan.
Appearance-wise, Elisa is a tall, athletically built woman of 29 years. She has half African American and half Native American heritage.
Detective Maza is introduced to the Gargoyles while investigating a disturbance at the castle on the skyscraper of David Xanatos.
As a person who values inner quality and character more than appearances, she bonds with the gargoyles due to their innate nature to protect and serve.
It aligns with her nature as well. As a person, the most valuable and appreciable quality of Elisa is her quick thinking.
Her dedication and loyalty to her friends from the Manhattan Clan are displayed often when she comes to their rescue, arranging living quarters and comforting them at her own expense.
We love her for being a true friend and protector.
47. Black Canary (Justice League Unlimited)
Black Canary is a superhero from the world of DC comics. She is a crime-fighting songstress who can kill with her voice.
She is the daughter of a police officer and a crime-fighting mother, so we can safely say that she inherited a very strong vigilante gene.
Black Canary or Dinah Laurel Lance is a blonde with blue eyes. She has excellent martial arts skills that were honed by her mother’s friend and a supersonic voice that she calls ‘Canary Cry’.
If she cannot do serious damage with her martial arts, then her Canary Cry is enough to incapacitate the strongest of foes.
While Canary got her sense of justice and crime-fighting from her parents, she helped to set up organizations like Justice League of America, Birds of Prey and fought in the Justice Society of America, etc.
Apart from her crime-fighting life, she was married to Green Arrow/Oliver Queen and adopted three children too.
She surely deserves a spot on everyone’s list of strong women.
46. Mera (Aquaman)
Mera is another superhero from DC comics. She is a princess from Xebel and a trained assassin with the power to manipulate all things that contain water.
Apart from being one of the fastest swimmers, she can communicate telepathically with sea creatures.
Mera can be described as a badass princess. She was sent by her kingdom of Xebel, which is a rival to Atlantis, to assassinate Arthur Curry/Aquaman.
After meeting him, she falls in love with him and his crime-fighting life with the Justice League.
She marries him and becomes the queen of Atlantis. Despite her role as the queen of the oceans, she actively assists the Justice League of America in fighting crime at sea.
The character of Mera combines two girly fantasies of being a princess and having superpowers.
She has enough mettle to stand against powerful villains like Black Manta, Ocean Master, etc., and win.
45. Princess Leia (Star Wars Rebels )
The character of Princess Leia needs no introduction. All fans of the Star Wars franchise are more than aware of her role as the leader of the Rebel army, the Resistance army.
She is also famous for being the daughter of Princess Padme Amidala and Anakin Skywalker.
Darth Vader, wife of Han Solo and the mother of Kylo Ren. She has fulfilled many roles in the world of Star Wars.
You might ask me why I put her so low on the list of best female characters…well, she plays a bigger part in the live-action world than in the animated world of Star Wars Rebels.
Having said that, I would like to list out a few of her personal attributes that are noteworthy and inspiring.
She is a princess in the kingdom of Alderaan, leader of the resistance. She is also a Jedi warrior and a General in the army.
For her sheer force of will, Princess Leia has to be included in the list.
44. Lois Lane (Superman Animated Series)
Lois Lane is a reporter from DC comics and an integral part of Superman’s world.
We are all well acquainted with Lois Lane from the numerous Superman movies and Justice League movies but in the animated series, her role was not very prominent outside the Superman Animated series.
This is the reason that I have ranked her lower than I would have liked.
Lois Lane is a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist from the Daily Planet newspaper. She is portrayed as a person with strong ethics, loyalty, a hunger for truth, and a very strong sense of justice.
Her sense of justice is comparable only to Superman. Despite being a human in a world of aliens, super-humans, and evil geniuses, Lane always held her own.
Many of us may consider her a damsel in distress or just a hotshot journalist, but her true importance in the DC universe is displayed in the fact that Batman respects her word and opinion apart from himself/ He even calls her the big gun.
43. Nala (The Lion King)
Nala is the female lead in the Lion King saga. She is Simba’s best friend and future wife.
As a young lion cub, Nala is both sassy and sensible. She is one of the most loyal friends of Simba and drives sense into his mind when he refuses to return to Pride Rock.
As a young cub, Nala could see the stubbornness and a bit of immaturity in Simba, so she also acted as the voice of reason and the encouraging friend to him.
Even after he and Mufasa were presumed dead in the stampede, she bravely voiced her opinion against the hyenas and Scar.
She was worried about the mismanagement of the pride at the hands of unqualified leaders.
The most endearing qualities of Nala are that she was able to see the potential in Simba as a good leader, despite his immaturity and self-doubt.
As a steadfast friend, she guided Simba and the pride to recover from the damage done by Scar.
Having a person like Nala in your team will help you overcome any hardship.
42. Nani Pelekai (Lilo & Stitch)
Nani Pelekai is a Disney cartoon character from the animated movie Lilo & Stitch and also appeared in the TV series with the same name.
Nani is the elder sister of Lilo, and she becomes Lilo’s legal guardian after the death of their parents.
In the movie and series, we see her take on the role of a parent and become the responsible one despite her young age of just 19 years.
Although Nani and Lilo are sisters, due to the 12 year age gap, Nani has trouble connecting with Lilo.
She wants to take care of her sister, but she also wants to enjoy her youth and carefree life.
Throughout the series, we see her mature and find the balance between her personal life, work, and responsibilities.
We love Nani for her kind-hearted and caring nature. When Lilo and Stitch get mischievous and disobey her, she gets upset and temperamental.
But, we can understand it as Lilo disobeys her often and her work stress and financial troubles are difficult to handle even for adults.
41. Jane Jetson (The Jetsons)
Jane Jetson is the sweetest, everyday housewife that we can ever find in the futuristic world of The Jetsons.
She is the matriarch of the house and the backbone that keeps the family running.
She strikes the right balance between her responsibilities to her family, her society, and her personal hobbies.
Jane is described as a perfect woman who manages to appease her husband, manages the finances of the house, takes care of her children, takes care of elders, maintains her social calendar, and is great at shopping.
Feminists and new-age women might balk at this description of a perfect woman, but we have to remember that the show was created in the time of black and white TV shows and this was the standard in those days.
The reason that I love Jane Jetson is that she is shown as a modern woman by the social standards of that day.
She appears to lead an upper-class lifestyle of shopping and gossip, but she is not an airhead.
She can hold an intelligent conversation about many topics and takes care of her family duties as diligently as her role in the historical society.
40. April O'Neil (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series)
April O’Neil is the human ally of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In her first appearance in Mirage Comics, she is shown as a genius computer programmer.
The Archie Comics version of TMNT portrayed her as a warrior who is trained by Splinter.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series showed her as a fearless news reporter. Be it either of the series, April O’Neil is depicted as a strong female character.
She is the first human ally of the turtles and stays loyal towards them all through.
She almost acts as a mother to the turtles and makes sure that they are clean and do all the chores assigned to them by the Master.
The reason that April has been included in this list is because of her qualities like loyalty, caring nature, bravery, etc.
She helps the turtles in any way that she can. She even runs investigations and gathers reports for them in their crime-fighting duties.

She is intelligent and mature for her age and acts as the voice of reason among all her friends.
She can also be described as a ‘woke’ member of society because of her political awareness and social responsibility.
She also has a few bad traits like her stubbornness and her jealousy. She is not above using manipulation and violence to make you accept her point.
Although she is a kind and empathetic person, she seems to be rubbed the wrong way by Eric Cartman.

Selina Kyle is intelligent, resourceful, and stealthy in her ways. This makes her a perfect candidate for a spy, and Catwoman uses her talents to steal from the rich and fund her animal conservation project.

Catwoman is often shown to work alone, but if the situation demands it, she has worked with Batman, Batgirl, Robin, etc.

She is the princess of land called Far Far Away. Princess Fiona’s story started in a castle surrounded by hot flames and guarded by a dragon.

Yet, she never let the humanity inside her die. When she heard about the difficulties the world faced during the world war, she decided that she would not sit idly by and watch the world destroy itself.
She stepped out of her protected world to save humanity. For years, she worked alone to fight crime, and when she met other superheroes and do-gooders like the Justice League of America, she joined forces with them and set aside her ego to work as a team.
Being a demi-god and a princess, Diana is filled with nobility, courage, self-righteousness, justice, and compassion.
