Baddest Ladies in Town?

So, it's 3am in the morning and you have been awaken by a Freddy Krueger like knife blade scraping outside your bedroom door.. The dog is quarantined overnight at the vets for fleas and the shotgun is nowhere to be found because the second amendment has been abolished, who exactly, of the female persuasion, would you want next to you for a little .... assistance, errrm, I mean, get you out of a jam?

Live action or animation can apply.
  • Meiko Kaji (Female Prisoner 701/Lady Snowblood/Blind Woman's Curse)
  • Miki Sugimoto (Zero Woman: Red Handcuffs/Sukeban/Criminal Woman: Killing Melody)
  • Reiko Ike (Female Yakuza Tale/Sex & Fury/Sukeban)
  • Christina Lindberg (Thriller/Sex & Fury)
  • Uma Thurman (Kill Bill 1 & 2)
  • Tura Santana (Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!/The Doll Squad)
  • Pam Grier (Coffy/Foxy Brown)
  • Rose McGowan (Planet Terror)
  • Motoko Kusanagi (Ghost in the Shell)
  • Other ...?

A very solid list of candidates to choose from...still I think I'll vote "Other" as I'd like to cast my vote for Cheng Pei Pei (COME DRINK WITH ME, and a boatload of other Shaw Brothers films). Too bad the poll function is limited to ten choices because Angela Mao (BROKEN OATH) would also deserve a spot, and Junko Fuji (RED PEONY GAMBLER series) too.

No Camille Keaton? I voted for Lindberg.

It's a toss up.

EDIT: Almost forgot:

Out of that list, I'd love Miki to be my most protection.


But if that relationship wouldn't work out, gotta go with "other": Rosanne Katon:


And don't be fooled by those wimpy punches she threw in Swinging Cheerleaders. In Ebony,Ivory,and Jade (As "Ebony") she clearly improved her kicking abilities.

Thurman or Grier for me. I just saw Faster, Pussycat! for the first time and thought Tura Satana was one hell of a hot badass...any recommendations for similar movies? I know Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is an essential Russ Meyer film.

I'll go with the lovely and talented Angela Mao Ying:

...and she's still lovely and talented as seen in this 2007 Tokyo press conference:
