Keeping the steam going with our badass women of anime, we're going with another easily recognizable badass lady:
While maybe not a conventional badass because of her less-than-stellar combat abilities, Hinata is nevertheless undeniably badass, late bloomer though she might be.
A member of the Hyuga clan, Hinata has the trademark Byakugan eyes and therefore the ability to see chakra points in her opponents. This, combined with her Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms technique makes her a force to be reckoned with.
More impressive than just that is her ability to use the Gentle Step Twin Lion Fists jutsu, a jutsu which only Hinata shows the ability to use.
With her fists cloaked in lion-like shrouds, she can drain the chakra from your body with the slightest touch.
More than her impressive techniques as a fighter, what really makes Hinata such a badass is her willingness to put her life on the line to protect the people (or person) that she loves. She does not even fear death in this instance.
There are not many people who can make that boast.
