Top 50 Best Female Disney Characters


Disney is soon going to celebrate its 100th year as a major production unit of the entertainment universe. Throughout the years, we have known Disney to smash box office records and set new benchmarks in character development.


Many of its iconic projects have gone on to cement their place in the hearts of the viewers courtesy of the extraordinary female characters that they comprised.


Even though animated, several of these characters are considered to be iconic in popular culture today. Whether they be antagonists or princesses, these female characters have stood the test of time and turned out to be far more influential than one could have initially imagined.


As much as we like these beloved personalities, we need to take a moment to appreciate their creators and voice artists who brought them to life with finesse on the screen.



50. Aurora




Our readers would be surprised to know the fact that even though this character only utters 18 lines of dialogue in her own movie, she is still significant enough to be included on our list.


Aurora, who is mostly found to be in a deep slumber through the major part of the feature film, basically fits the bill of being a catalyst.


Needless to say, her character works as a plot device and strives to keep things moving in the screenplay.


It is difficult to find a lot more about this character since she is literally only found sleeping. But, no list mentioning the top female Disney characters would afford to miss out on her name.



49. Penny Proud


Penny Proud


Penny Proud is the main protagonist of Disney Channel's The Proud Family franchise. She is a teenager who may sometimes be embarrassed by the antics of her father.


However, the talented youngster dreams of having a normal life, despite the restrictions that she has to adhere to within her family.


Besides being a competent singer, Penny is also a dedicated student. In addition, one can even find her reciting poetry and making her presence felt on the football team.


While she has also tried herself at cheerleading, one can even catch her getting a tad jealous when Dijonay becomes as fluent as her at reciting poems.




48. Elizabeth Swann


Elizabeth Swann


Elizabeth Swann is the tritagonist of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise of motion pictures. The series starts by showing the character in possession of an artifact; something that makes her a target of the pirates.


However, she is saved by Captain Jack Sparrow quite a few times before she learns to fight for and defend herself.


As the franchise reaches its finale, the viewers get to see Elizabeth Swann earning the position of Pirate King and, therefore, becoming the very first woman to ever hold the title.


She is a strong woman who gathers the required strength over a period of time. She strives to use both her feminity and power to get through to the men around her.




47. Meilin "Mei" Lee


Meilin "Mei" Lee


One of the main protagonists of Disney and Pixar's latest animated collaboration Turning Red, Meilin "Mei" Lee is a rather unique character.


Now, we say unique because unlike any other character on this list, Mei Lee has the power to revamp into a huge red panda.


However, it happens only when she is feeling a super-strong emotion. She can also be seen enjoying studying and learning new things, even if her friends don't seem to be too fond of the things that she likes.


The subject of Mathematics is one such example. Even though she shares a close bond with her parents, her relationship with her mother is a bit complex.




46. Sister Mary Clarence


Sister Mary Clarence


Whoopi Goldberg hit the ball out of the park with her outstanding portrayal of Sister Mary Clarence in the Sister Act series of motion pictures.


This passionate and endearing character turns a class of teenagers into a superb award-winning choir. While Goldberg may have been involved with a lot of popular projects throughout her career, her character projection of Sister Mary Clarence continues to remain her most popular work to date.


Also, we seldom see a sequel turning out to be better than its predecessor. However, Whoopi Goldberg's performance ensured that Sister Act 2 surpassed the first installment of the franchise successfully.




45. Marnie Piper


Marnie Piper


Actor Kimberly J. Brown stars as Marnie Piper, who is the central protagonist of the Halloweentown franchise of movies.


Marnie is, basically, a girl who seems to be obsessed with the idea of Halloween. However, she lives with her mother who detests the festivities.


That said, things take a shocking turn when she discovers that she is a half-human witch and that she was born into a family of witches.


Even though she is astounded by the revelations, Marnie does her best to demonstrate that it is important to fight for what we believe in, no matter the consequences.




44. Mirabel Madrigal


Mirabel Madrigal


Mirabel Madrigal is the protagonist of Disney's animated feature film Encanto. Even though she is sort of an outcast in her family, she would go to any length to do things for them.


What is special about her is the fact that no matter what the situation is, Mirabel does not let bitterness get the better of her.


However, she does not feel that she has been blessed with a gift like most of the members of her family.


But, as viewers, we do realize the fact that looking out for the best interests of your loved ones is a gift in itself in today's age and world.




43. Queen of Hearts


Queen of Hearts


This tyrannical and eccentric ruler is the chief antagonist of the popular Disney animated feature film, titled Alice in Wonderland, which hit the screens in 1951.


Even though she appears towards the end of the movie, her character is such that she manages to leave a lasting impression in just a few sequences.


What is somewhat funny about the Queen of Hearts is the fact that she squanders much of her time struggling to behead Alice.


Indeed, her massive personality gives her a definitive edge. Therefore, it would not be an exaggeration to state that this larger-than-life villainous character is also one of Alice in Wonderland's highlights.




42. Ariel




Ariel might be the youngest of the seven sisters, but she prefers to enjoy her freedom and adventures, despite the many reservations of her father.


Even though she is obsessed with exploring, what matters to her, even more, is the fact that she wishes to be where most people are.


Needless to mention, she is the archetypal Disney princess. Ariel, who is determined, self-sufficient, and loyal, has a sensitive story that can resonate with a lot of young adults out there.


That is one reads why we are compelled to include her character on our list. Her journey to self-discovery could not have been completed had it not been for her resilience and spirited thought process.




41. Yzma




Yzma is an amazing villainous character from The Emperor's New Groove that has been voiced efficiently by Eartha Kitt.


She is known to be obsessed with taking the throne away from the egomaniacal Emperor Kuzco. In order to ensure that she manages to do that, she goes on to hatch several ridiculous plans over time.


Even though it is sometimes sure that she may not be able to succeed in her over-ambitious endeavors, it is a delight to see her not give up despite the obvious difficulties.


It is wonderful to see how the Emperor finds a formidable adversary in the dreadful Yzma.




40. Snow White


Snow White


While Aurora was mostly found sleeping in her movie, our next protagonist was primarily seen running around and screaming in a project that brought her into the spotlight.


As viewers, we do comprehend the fact that Snow White is naive, considerate, and sweet. However, it is this generous attitude of hers that often ends up landing her in trouble.


Having said that, this character has also been established to be a great example of why one should not accept anything from strangers.


However, we do firmly believe that a little more depth should have been added to the character in order to make her a tad more relevant in the features that she has been shown in.




39. Captain Marvel


Captain Marvel


This superheroine from Marvel Comics, whose real name is Carol Danvers, is blessed with cosmic powers which she utilizes to protect the universe.


Created by Roy Thomas and Gene Colan, Carol is someone who was always known to be dedicated to her work and achievements.


She barely had any time for anything ludicrous and always strived to focus on matters of significance. While she managed to gain stupendous superhuman powers after having turned into Captain Marvel, she was almost equally brave and bold even before turning into a superhero, and that is precisely why the character comes across as believable.



38. Dottie McStuffins


Dottie McStuffins


This seven-year-old child happens to be the main protagonist of the animated Disney Junior series, titled Doc McStuffins. Dottie McStuffins stands out from the rest of the crowd in the sense that she admires her mother too much and wishes to follow in her footsteps in life.


She can be seen taking really good care of the toys she owns. In a way, it makes her responsible as a young individual and injects a caring attitude into her persona.


Aside from the aforementioned fact, Dottie is a loving daughter who is devoted to her family and her beloved parents.


We wish that there were more daughters like her in the contemporary world.



37. Dory




Well, our beloved Dory might be a forgetful fish but we are not going to make the mistake of forgetting to give her a much-deserved spot on our list.


While this adventure-loving character might not be the smartest fish in the sea, she has truly set a precedent when it comes to her caring personality.


Even though she suffers from short-term memory loss, she does try to be of assistance to anyone around her who needs it.


Needless to mention, this optimistic fish has a heart of pure gold and deserves all the praise and attention in the world.


So, what are you waiting for? Go get acquainted with Dory if you haven't already!



36. Cinderella




Cinderella is someone who seems to have been dedicated to doing good. She continues to keep her calm and is always humble, even though she is constantly perturbed by her condescending stepmother and cruel stepsisters.


However, an observant can go on to argue that she is also often seen running around and screaming, albeit not as loud as Snow White.


Even though Cinderella might come off as a one-dimensional character, she does manage to provide certain unforgettable moments to her age-old viewers.


For example, one can never forget how she readies food for a crowd of mice. Also, one has to give it to her for keeping her composure even in the harshest of situations without ever sounding like she is going to complain.


A Cinderella is a rarity in today's age and world.



35. Tinker Bell


Tinker Bell


Tinker Bell might be a sweet-looking tiny little lady but she is considered to be one of the most admirable faces of the entire Disney network today.


Ever since she made her formidable presence felt in the first Peter Pan pictures, she has gone on to establish herself as a major attraction of the popular Disney Fairies franchise.


Even though Tinker Bell is only a few inches tall, she has the power to not only make the people around her happy but she also has enough zeal to make the audience be in complete awe of her personality.



34. Lilo Pelekai


Lilo Pelekai


The young Lilo Pelekai is one of the main protagonists of the Lilo & Stitch franchise. She is a young orphan who seems to have been a total recluse at her school.


However, her personality traits find a match in Stitch and the two end up becoming a dynamic duo. They are seen to be working together with an aim to find a place that can manage to accommodate each one of Stitch’s hundreds of cousins.


Needless to say, they try their very best to help people whenever they need their assistance. Lilo Pelekai's tacit intention of making sure that nobody gets left behind as she progresses in her life is what makes her a worthy addition to our list.



33. The Evil Queen


The Evil Queen


No matter how much we pretend to despise the antagonistic characters, we cannot deny the simple fact that, sometimes, they can be far more intriguing than the heroes themselves.


One such character to make it to our list is The Evil Queen from Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs.


Obsessed with a sense of superiority, she set the bar high for other Disney villains to follow. While she is more than keen on killing Snow White in order to become the fairest of them all, a scene that shows her transforming into a twisted old hag remains as masterful as it could possibly be.



32. Daisy Duck


Daisy Duck


Only a very special person could put up with the many tantrums thrown by Donald Duck from time to time.


And, Daisy Duck happens to be that special person. That said, she is not only there to handle Donald's bursts of anger but she has also been seen reprimanding her boyfriend over his anger issues.


In fact, Daisy can lose her cool quite often as well but she manages to calm herself down to come across as poised at all times.


Periodically but surely, she can be seen putting on her diva appearance. Also, her pairing with Donald Duck is remarkable, to say the least.


Indeed, Daisy and Donald were a match made in heaven.



31. Belle




One of Disney's earliest princesses, Belle is someone who has always been known for standing for what she believes in.


She is someone who is always looking for more than what life usually has to offer. And, even though her story climaxes with a love angle, she was not actively looking for a love affair in the first place.


Belle is an active character overall. We can insist on this because she can be found trying her best to save not only her beloved father but also the Beast in her very dramatic story.


That said, she also comes across as someone who is pretty confident in her skin. That is precisely why she does whatever it is that she wants to do earnestly.



30. Megara




Megara might find it difficult to trust people in her life but she is one of the more fleshed-out Disney female characters that we are including on our list.


Her distrust of the people stems from the fact that she has been burned in her life. This makes her wary of those individuals who wish to get close to her.


However, as the screenplay of the motion picture proceeds, one does see Megara opening up a bit. Also, she can be seen sacrificing a lot for Hercules by the time the story climaxes.


Her willingness to sacrifice things for the person that she adores the most is what truly sets her apart from the rest of the crowd.



29. Ursula




Ursula, who is also known as the Sea Witch, is the central antagonist of the immensely popular Disney animated feature film, titled The Little Mermaid.


Half-woman and half-octopus, she is known to make deals with the pained merfolk. Basically, she makes them believe that she can turn their lifelong dreams into reality and, therefore, the folks have no qualms about striking a deal with her.


One can never underestimate Ursula's magical powers. We say so because we have all seen her turn a mermaid into a human.


Needless to say, she is probably capable of executing all kinds of marine magic. She is a solid and one of the most unusual additions to our list.



28. Nani Pelekai


Nani Pelekai


Nani Pelekai is the older sister of the main protagonist Lilo Pelekai in the show, Lilo & Stitch. Even though not a lot of attention has been paid to her character sketch, we do believe that she deserves to be on this list.


An excellent role model to both the boys and girls, she is mostly seen doing her best to provide for her family; especially for her sister Lilo.


Lilo, being the younger of the two, naturally resorts to a lot of mischievous activities. And, while Nani is an adult now who should have a life of her own, most of the things that she does is done keeping her only family member in mind.



27. Jasmine




Apart from the fact that she is a princess, what makes Jasmine a character to watch out for is that she is one of the first non-white Disney Princesses.


Jasmine is a true-blue rebel. She is a strong-willed character who does not intend to follow the norms that society has set for her as a princess.


Instead, she wishes to do what she feels is right. That said, she soon finds herself in trouble when an influential wizard becomes hell-bent on stealing her.


Be that as it may, these obstacles do not really deter her from wanting to live life the way she wants to.



26. Nala




The next character to make it to our list is Nala. She is a lioness so she has to be powerful; something that is more than apparent in her character sketch in the animated hit The Lion King.


However, not many people would have been able to gauge the fact that she can also turn out to be a great companion.


Nala, who remains loyal to Simba throughout the feature film, also does her best to persuade him to come back.


Eventual, strong, convincing, and loyal, she is a true-blue Disney heroine and a fantastic addition to our list.



25. Rapunzel




Even though Rapunzel is shown to be 18 years old, she has never really been allowed to step outside at will.


However, the character feeds a lot on self-realization and, therefore, comes across as the most well-rounded one in the screenplay.


That being said, Rapunzel hopes to have more than what she has in her tower. Needless to say, this fuels her desire to have long-lasting adventures in order to find her true self.


Soon enough, she finds out that a major part of her life has been a lie. Be that as it may, Rapunzel's kind nature is on full display when she is seen trying to sacrifice her contentment to ascertain that Flynn makes it out of her tower successfully.


While she may not have met a lot many people in her life, she does have an inherent idea about what it means to love and have it reciprocated.



24. Joy




Joy is one of the central protagonists of the Disney-Pixar feature, titled Inside Out. She is one of the five emotions inside the mind of Riley Andersen.


However, thankfully for both Riley and the viewers, Joy happens to be the leader of the emotions. Needless to say, she always wishes to remain joyful.


We can also call Joy understanding. This is because as the story unfolds, she does realize the fact that the rest of the emotions in Riley's mind also have a purpose to serve of their own.


Nonetheless, since Joy is the leader here, she puts Riley and her comfort over anything else. Also, she strives to make sure that everything runs as smoothly as possible.



23. Minnie Mouse


Minnie Mouse


Even though her boyfriend Mickey Mouse might be more popular than her, Minnie has continued to make her presence felt right from the start  She made her debut appearance in 1928's Steamboat Willie and was first seen playing the traditional damsel in distress.


However, her character has evolved over the years to have better layers. She can be seen as being reasonable and frank when she has to be.


She can also not stand someone being mean to her. A true-blue style icon and often considered to be a symbol of femininity, Minnie Mouse is a character one can easily fall in love with.


A lot many young women have come to identify themselves with this character since its inception decades ago.



22. Scarlet Witch


Scarlet Witch


The badass Scarlet Witch is the first Marvel heroine to make it to our list. She is a superhero who has appeared in a lot many blockbuster Marvel-related productions that have been backed by Disney.


Scarlet Witch, whose real name is Wanda Maximoff, has been created by both Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. She has the ability to control energy and she leaves no stone unturned to put her unmatched power on display when she goes on to demolish the Infinity Stone with one hand while holding back the dominant Thanos with the other.


Scarlet Witch is also one of the titular protagonists of the Disney+ series, titled WandaVision.



21. Emma Swan


Emma Swan


Daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, the determined Emma Swan also happens to be the leading protagonist of the first six seasons of the Disney-themed series, titled Once Upon a Time.


While her punchlines do make her come across as a savior, her appearance does give out the vibe of being a bonafide Disney heroine.


Even though Emma does not initially accept her magical origins, she makes peace with the fact that she has to play the role that she was always meant to portray.


Ever since the realization of her abilities dawns on her, she starts to use her power for the greater good.


In fact, she is even seen sacrificing herself to evil so that the people that she cares about do not have to suffer.


Needless to say, Emma Swan has a protective instinct embedded in her soul and can go to any length to defend those that she loves.



20. Shuri




Shuri, who is the Princess of Wakanda, is first and foremost a Marvel Comics character who can be seen making her presence felt both in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and in Marvel Animation.


She is a master engineer who has contributed in a big way to the overall advancement of Wakanda’s technology.


That being said, Shuri is as great a warrior as she is an engineer. She can use her knowledge of technology to create weapons that only she knows how to wield.


While most of us stop trying to fix our computers when even turning them on and off doesn't seem to work, Shuri is someone who can deprogram humans just as easily.



19. Black Widow


Black Widow


Black Widow, whose real name is Natasha Romanoff, has got to be one of the most spectacular Disney characters of the modern era.


Not only is Black Widow the first female representative of the Avengers but she is also a spy who has played a prominent role in the group's inception and development.


One of the first and finest members of the formidable squad, this multi-faceted life-taker has also gone on to demonstrate that she is an incredible fighter.


The popularity of the character can be measured by the fact that it has a smash-hit superhero feature of its own.



18. Judy Hopps


Judy Hopps


One of the main protagonists of Disney's animated feature film Zootopia, Officer Judy Hopps is the first rabbit officer of the Zootopia Police Department.


Since she is determined to make the world a better place and protect the citizens of her town, it won't be a hyperbole to assert that she has gone on to break several preconceptions about other species.


Judy also does not shy away from going against the government. It is evident from the fact that she does her best to destroy crime rings run by members of the ruling government.


Whether you are a citizen of Zootopia or not, you can trust Judy Hopps with your life.



17. Tiana




While people don't often easily realize the importance of hard work and dedication, Tiana, the star of The Princess and the Frog, knows their true worth.


She is a fighter who is willing to go to any length to fight for what she wants. But then, the viewers catch her getting turned into a frog!


Despite all odds, we see that Tiana tries her very best to accomplish her life-long goal of owning a restaurant.


Her outspoken nature and determined personality help her go a long way. That being said, she also chances upon love as she continues with her journey.



16. Elsa




While the relentless cold may bother mortals across the globe, it ceases to unnerve Arendelle’s queen Elsa. She stands out from the rest of the characters in the sense that she is the only one who was born with the otherworldly ability to control and alter ice.


However, the power that she possesses compels her to distance herself from the rest of the world. She does so in order to ensure that her powers don't harm the people that matter to her the most in her life.


Along with her sister, Elsa forms a seemingly indestructible duo that rules over Arendelle successfully.



15. Kim Possible


Kim Possible


There is no denying the fact that being a teenager is super tough and that we have all been through that phase in our respective lives.


It is not surprising then that most of the problems that can be solved rather amicably come across as completely destructive while we are teenagers.


However, Kim Possible is someone who seems to have balanced her teenage life quite well. How she has managed to do that is a total surprise to most of us.


In addition, she has also taken a vow to stop any and every crime that she sees unfurl before her eyes.


Also, she has superpowers. Well, that perhaps explains how she arranged to do so well for herself as a teenager.



14. Vanellope Von Schweetz


Vanellope Von Schweetz


The deuteragonist in the movie Wreck-It Ralph has been voiced by actor and comedian Sarah Silverman. Vanellope, who was originally the princess of the Sugar Rush game, decided that she did not want to be called a princess after all.


Instead, she wished to refer to herself as the president. However, she was soon toppled as the ruler of the Sugar Rush kingdom by an intruder named King Candy.


Not only did he take her throne but he also turned her into a glitch. After being introduced to the admirable friendship of Wreck-it-Ralph, she gets the courage to turn her glitchy nature into an advantage over the other racers hovering around.


Needless to say, through her guts and charisma, Vanellope goes on to establish that everyone can succeed just so long as they are willing to succeed.



13. Pocahontas




What can be more attractive than a person who has the capability to stop a war? Aside from the aforementioned fact, what makes this Disney Princess come across as impressive is that she can speak with both the animals and humans alike, and that too in different languages.


A free-spirited individual, Pocahontas likes to have adventures in her life and has enough courage to stand up for the people she loves.


In fact, she was bold enough to let her lover John Smith go just so that she could continue to be with her tribe; a haven where she knew she always belonged.



12. Cruella De Vil


Cruella De Vil


Cruella De Vil is the central antagonist of Disney's animated feature film, titled 101 Dalmatians. What made her popularity soar initially is the fact that she desired to use the skins of 99 Dalmatian puppies to create a never-seen-before spotted fur coat.


Often referred to as the "witch" and "devil woman", her obsession with furs pushes her to go on a relentless murderous spree.


Be that as it may, even Cruella's worst enemies think that she has style and charisma and that, most importantly, she knows how to make an entrance and still the show.


That said, her flair for fashion and furs makes her come across as sadistic. However, instead of making the viewers dislike her, it only ends up adding to her inimitable persona.



11. Rey




Rey is a very capable protagonist of the Star Wars sequel trilogy. Since she is a Jedi, one cannot dispute the fact that she has got to be strong.


She made her debut appearance in The Force Awakens and brought a ton of energy to the team. Rey, who soon became one of the leaders in the fight against the First Order, did not take a lot of time to demonstrate her acumen and undeniable skills when the time came for her to exhibit both.


During the course of her journey though, she is seen developing an intimate and intricate love affair with the antagonist, Kylo Ren.



10. Anna




Anna is the large-hearted and, yet, socially awkward protagonist of the animated feature film, titled Frozen. Younger sister to Elsa the Snow Queen and the contemporary ruler of Arendelle, she would like nothing more than to mend the relationship with her sister.


Through her sharp mind and affection for her beloved sister, Anna was able to quash the eternal winter unleashed accidentally by Elsa.


That said, she is not only passionate but also protective of the people she truly cares about. As a viewer, you are not left with many options but to hope that all her wishes do come true.



9. Mrs. Incredible


Mrs. Incredible


Also known as Helen Parr and Elastigirl to the public, Mrs. Incredible happens to be the deuteragonist of the Disney-Pixar animated film, titled The Incredibles.


She is popular for her capability to transform herself into different shapes and sizes as and when she feels it is necessary.


While she is part of a big cast in her maiden movie, she truly comes into her own in the second installment of the Incredibles franchise and leaves a lasting impression.


She can even be caught taking down a woman who was trying her futile best to ensure that the public ended up despising superheroes.


Needless to mention, it is best if you don't try to mess with the incredible Mrs. Incredible.



8. Gamora




Created by Jim Starlin, this Marvel Comics heroine is a solid member of the popular Guardians of the Galaxy squad.


Widely known to be among the most dangerous women on the planet, Gamora is a former assassin who once could be seen working for her adopted father, Thanos.


However, she soon set herself free and aimed to deter him once and for all. Unlike her father, Gamora wishes to make the universe a better place.


In this endeavor of hers, she can be glimpsed fighting all sorts of crime with her brave Guardians of the Galaxy unit.


Needless to say, the character seems to have been driven by the desire to do what is right.



7. Raya




One of Disney’s most recent princesses, Raya is the titular protagonist of Disney's animated feature film, titled Raya and the Last Dragon.


She can be seen going on a mission to fetch a legendary dragon that has the power to redeem her land of Kumandra and its lovely people.


The movie features some noteworthy punchlines that inspire the viewers to take the first step, no matter how impossible or daunting a task may look.


Raya, who is also well-trained in martial arts, is a true friend who does not believe in leaving her pals behind.


She realizes that people can do so much more when they stick together. More importantly, she succeeds in giving out the message that someone doesn't need to be called a Princess only when they have Prince Charming by their side.



6. Esmeralda




A deuteragonist of Disney's animated feature film The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Esmeralda is referred to as the gypsy girl in Paris.


She is an outspoken personality who may be despised by the justice system and seen as an outcast, but she never lets her rational mind cease to work.


An epitome of both hard work and humanity, she can be seen dancing on the streets to make ends meet.


Needless to say, not only can she entertain her audience but she also stands up for what she believes is right.


Esmeralda puts on her savior's face to protect the deformed bell-ringer, Quasimodo. It is not surprising then that she speaks her mind to support those who have been misled by the justice system.


Her determination and forgiving traits are her biggest strengths.



5. Maleficent




An incarnation of pure evil, Maleficent is the main antagonist and, quite frankly, the poster child of Disney Studios.


First seen in the animated feature film Sleeping Beauty, she is a malicious fairy who happens to be responsible for all the hardship in King Stefan's kingdom.


Ever since her debut in 1959, Maleficent's evil reputation has preceded her. She commands tremendous power and has set new benchmarks for other wicked characters to follow over the years.


Needless to say, she is referred to as the undisputed Mistress of All Evil for a solid reason. It is not surprising then that she is both infamous and iconic in equal measure.


The character has also been played by Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie in the Maleficent series of feature films.



4. Leia Skywalker Organa Solo


Leia Skywalker Organa Solo


Leia Skywalker Organa Solo, who is popularly known as Leia Organa, is one of the main characters in the Star Wars original trilogy.


Her journey from being a Princess to a General is truly worth enjoying. When the viewers first got introduced to Leia, they saw her playing the conventional damsel-in-distress role.


However, she soon let go of that personality and turned out to be a sharp protagonist in the Star Wars series of feature films.


Her knowledge and skills in military strategy are perhaps her biggest weapons and she knows when to put them both to use.



3. Merida




A Scottish princess from the kingdom of DunBroch, Merida is the central protagonist of the Disney-Pixar animated feature film, titled Brave.


She is a warrior in the true sense of the word. Reasonable and skillful, she knows how to wield a number of dangerous weapons.


Needless to say, Merida is a go-getter who does not need a man to come to her aid; precisely why a lot many women do and should resonate with her character.


Having said that, Merida also realizes when she makes a mistake. Her brave and dedicated personality is what makes her a true-blue Princess and, indeed, one of the finest Disney female characters of all time.



2. Moana




Moana is the titular protagonist of Disney's animated feature film of the same name. She is quite an adventurer who has an inherent love for the seas.


The viewers get to see how she is chosen by the ocean to voyage across the sea and defend the world after her island falls prey to life-killing darkness.


The shape-shifting demigod Maui tries to always be there for her and help her in the most difficult of circumstances.


As the screenplay proceeds, the viewer finds Moana returning the stolen heart of a goddess to its rightful owner.


While the scene and the song in it are both outstanding, her journey goes on to prove that she is a hero in the true sense of the word.


And, yes, she did manage to save her home in the end.



1. Mulan




While some may call Mulan the most spirited of all characters, others would argue that she is probably too over-ambitious to be true.


Be that as it may, one cannot ever forget the fact that to save her old and seemingly fragile father from enlisting in the tough military, she goes on to disguise herself as her father and joins in his place.


Even though she starts her journey on a rather rough note, she goes on to establish herself as a skilled warrior.


However, just like everything else in the world, her true identity is revealed as she strives to save the army from destruction.


Despite the fact that Mulan comes across as a clumsy girl at the beginning of the movie, one can see that all she wishes to do is uphold the honor of her beloved clan.


Many consider her to be the greatest Disney female character to have ever been written for the screen.
