If youve seen the trailers for Snow White and the Huntsman
But its not only the bad mood and the armor that makes a good warrior princess or queen. But, they do help.
Here are our top five queens and princesses you wont want to fuck with. Noble by birth or not, their royal status derives itself only from some serious ass-kickery!
One might be tempted to declare John Miliuss Conan The Barbarian a mans-man movie. That may be true concerning audience, but the film itself has a lot of space for a strong female character (psychologically and physically speakingespecially physically. The chicks cut!). Valeria, as played by the blonde Sandahl Bergman, isnt reduced to being the barely-clad dummy who gets it on with Arnolds stoical barbarian although she does that rather heroically, too. Nope, she kills her fair share of Chippendale-ish looking dudes. By Chrome, what a woman!
4. Red Sonja
Red Sonja as played by bombshell and then-sex symbol Brigitte Nielsen shares most traits with the aforementioned Valeria. Well, most except that she is the protagonist in her own movie! ‘Good for her,’ you might think, except that the movie sucks immensely. ‘Why is she in the top five then,’ you might ask? Well frankly, the author of these lines has to confess that he is scared shitless of Nielsen. Have you seen her lately? She looks like an angry Dolph Lundgren with boobs!
Sassy Teela always seemed to be one of the more annoying characters of the animation show He-Man. This mainly stems from her inability to understand that the pacifist Adam really is the mighty warrior He-Man (think the Lois and Clark dynamic with far fewer clothes, some swords and a big, green talking dog). If this wasnt enough, she always a total a bitch to He-Mans alter ego. On the other hand, she was also very brave and one might consider her constant dissing a sort of weird flirty banter. Warrior princesses are complicated
Oh Xena! I would sing you an ode, yet I am afraid that thou would’st kick me in the balls! Lucy Lawless played the warrior princess with gusto and spirit. The character first appeared in the TV show Hercules, starring a well-maned Kevin Sorbo. Lawless was so impressive that her character, instead of dying like planned, got her own spin-off.
Her legendary chemistry is not with the demigod Hercules, but with her young sidekick Gabrielle, played by the adorable Rene OConnor. The two soon became a sort of cult couple for the growing lesbian audience (and male creeps like the author of these lines). They exchanged only one tender kiss, which proved that not only dudes got it on with each other in Old Greece!
1. Princess Leia
But the throne has only place for one milady. There can be no discussion who that is: Princess Leia. Why? I give you why:
Shes adorably feisty. But she also got the skills to deliver!
She has captured the heart of renowned rascal Han Solo.
That golden bikini in Return of the Jedi. A truly, truly royal accomplishment! She could conquer nations in that thing (or continue strangling Jabba The Hut for all eternity)!
So who are your top warrior princesses, queens and all-around kick-ass chicks?
