Picture 1 of 10

"I was not elected to watch my people suffer and die while you discuss this invasion in a committee!"

What a resume on this lady, and it is a wonder why she isn't in many of these so-called lists but that goes to show the knowledge of the people who have made other lists (snark!) Padme ruled an entire kingdom at age 11, she saw death, wars and her man go from a whiny little bitch into the darkest, most evil Sith lord in the galaxy. While all of that was going on this little lady managed to trade shots with droids, stand her ground against a corrupt senate and fight in an arena! Yes, she took on creatures that would snap men in half easily all while being handcuffed and left to her inner strength and legendary boyfriend.

To top off her prowess as a Sci-Fi badass, Padme went ahead and gave birth to twins that would later on save the galaxy from sure destruction. A mother, a wife to Darth Vader, diplomat, and an ace with a Naboo pistol, Padme Skywalker is one of Sci-Fi's most dynamically badass women.

These women were strong, beautiful and unstoppable in their movies or movie series. They exemplified strength under the harshest of circumstances, held their men down when needed and collected a body count that would give John Rambo a run for his money. Hall of The Black Dragon presents the Top 10 Female Badasses of Sci-Fi Movies. While there are a number of comic book and TV series hotties that put these ladies to shame, we are focusing on those who shone brightly in the Box Office.

Honorable Mentions: Leeloo (The Fifth Element), Lara Croft (Tomb Raider), Princess Leia (Star Wars), Cherry Darling (Planet Terror), Tank Girl (Tank Girl), Most Bond Girls.
