Best OP/Strong Female Main Characters

Sick of the stereotypical weak female MC who can't fight for shit, or is mentally weaker than a twig? Well, here's the list for you folk's; filled with badass female MC's who are fully capable of kicking ass. These are ranked from best to worst by my own personal preferences, so you may not agree (though those shown at the bottom without the descriptions have yet to be ranked. Sorry I'll do that when I can spare some time).
1 Beware the Villainess!

Beware the Villainess!

This is one of the most hilarious shit I've read. MC is pretty strong mentally (and is actually practicing sword fighting) and is such a badass it's amazing. It isn't your typical 'MC reincarnated as villainess' either, trust me on that and go read it. You won't regret it.

2 Uglyhood

Uglyhood

The world is controlled by aliens through a crazy religion, and Elsa (the MC) must survive as a ridiculed 'non-believer'. Elsa so freakin badass and strong as hell. She has awesome superpowers and is also a great tomboy. She's also funny as hell.

3 Master Drifting Away Again

Master Drifting Away Again

The MC is pretty much so physically strong that she beats every cultivator in the manga (even though she doesn't have an ounce of energy), but she's lazy as all hell and doesn't even know why she's strong, besides the fact that she's a master martial artist. The manga's pretty funny too and it gives off serious One Punch Man vibes.

4 Phoenix Goes Against the World

Phoenix Goes Against the World

Looking for a good 'falls into another world manga'? Here you go then! MC is a past assassin who's transported into a historical world where she becomes OP as hell. Kinda has light reverse harem vibes later on too (more of a subplot though). What more could you ask?

5 I'm the Grim Reaper

I'm the Grim Reaper

She's legitimately the Grim Reaper. Strong and super cool attitude.

6 Adonis

Adonis

MC has travelled back in time after she's killed in battle. She's crazy strong (however, not as strong as the male lead, unfortunately), super cold, but has a soft side (well, she never really shows it, but it's there!...somewhere).

7 From Today On, I'm a Boy

From Today On, I'm a Boy

So MC takes a bet (for like, a shit tonne of money) that she can disguise herself as a boy during school. She's very calm and collected, but fully capable of beating your ass.

8 My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!

My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!

Of all the 'reincarnate as the villainess' mangas, this had to be one of the best (top tier stuff right here). It's so funny! The female lead may not be overpowered, but she's one of the few reincarnated girl's who has decided to actually learn sword fighting and magic, just in case she needs to 'defend herself'. This girl doesn't take shit from anybody! She stands up for her friends no matter what and is always willing to help them out. You may not like the mc's completely dense nature, but I think it's definitely worth a read. I hope you don't mind reverse harem's. 

9 The Knight and Her Emperor

The Knight and Her Emperor

Female lead is very well versed in combat, independent and mentally strong. This is a good representation of how “strong female characters” don’t have to necessarily be short-tempered or hold an arrogant air around them. The MC is intelligent, knows her weaknesses, and only gets angered for good reason. Though she continues to be the densest character freaking ever (poor Emperor) the plot isn’t simply driven by the hella one-sided romance between the fl and the ml, but has an interesting story premise. I like how the art actually shows how strong the fl is, with her being given abs and muscles instead of a paper-thin body that doesn’t match her physical strength or reflect her years of training. HIGHLY recommend this one, definitely.

10 Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear

Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear

...Read it. Just do it. Trust me. Being overpowered is this chick's MO. The problem is, she's stuck with wearing a ridiculous looking bear suit.

11 Crimson Karma

Crimson Karma

This pro military-assassin dies and wakes up in the body of some chick soldier that should've died in an explosion of some kind. Strong, composed(ish) and awesome as hell.

12 Akuyaku Reijou Level 99: Watashi wa Urabosu Desu ga Maou de wa Arimasen

Akuyaku Reijou Level 99: Watashi wa Urabosu Desu ga Maou de wa Arimasen

MC is overpowered as heck. Calm, collected and cool af

13 The Rebirth of a Tyrannical Empress

The Rebirth of a Tyrannical Empress

From what I've read so far, this MC is such a badass. Great sword-wielder (OG villainess killed like 5 guys with a butter knife, it was great). This queen be slaying corrupt pricks and I love her for it. 

14 Miao Shou Xian Dan

Miao Shou Xian Dan

MC has like, super strength or something

15 Saigo ni Hitotsu Dake Onegaishite mo Yoroshii Desu ka?

Saigo ni Hitotsu Dake Onegaishite mo Yoroshii Desu ka?

The MC has tried to stay composed for YEARS up until her fiance divorces her... then people realise the this chick is SAVAGE

16 Evil Knight

Evil Knight

17 Smash it Girl

Smash it Girl

The MC is seriously strong. Like really REALLY strong. SHE FIGHTS MONSTERS FOR A LIVING.

18 Shinigami ni Sodaterareta Shoujo wa Shikkoku no Ken wo Mune ni Idaku

Shinigami ni Sodaterareta Shoujo wa Shikkoku no Ken wo Mune ni Idaku

Okay, it's in the title. This chick was RAISED BY MOTHER FREAKIN' DEATH AND IS OP AS HELL.

19 Charlotte and Her 5 Disciples

Charlotte and Her 5 Disciples

The MC is basically the strongest magic user in her world, but was reborn when she died of old age. She's still strong af though. A pretty good read so far, go check it out.

20 Rekishi ni Nokoru Akujo ni Naru zo: Akuyaku Reijou ni naru hodo Ouji no Dekiai wa Kasoku suru you desu!

Rekishi ni Nokoru Akujo ni Naru zo: Akuyaku Reijou ni naru hodo Ouji no Dekiai wa Kasoku suru you desu!

From what I've seen of this, the MC is gonna develop into someone who's pretty damn strong.

21 New Life, New Me

New Life, New Me

I can't even with this manga. It's like if Hulk and One Punch Man had a child. Plot may not be your thing, but check it out anyways.

22 Koryuu nara Sude de Taosemasu kedo, Korette Joushiki Janain desu ka?

Koryuu nara Sude de Taosemasu kedo, Korette Joushiki Janain desu ka?

So basically, the MC was raised and trained by the strongest Sage in existence in an isolated area, but, the Sage neglected to teach her any general knowledge (she doesn't even know the difference between males and females). So, the MC thinks it's completely normal to throw dragons around like ragdolls.  

23 I Shall Survive Using Potions!

I Shall Survive Using Potions!

So, this MC was blessed by a different world's goddess and is pretty strong. I know using JUST potions doesn't seem OP, but trust me, she can make them to do practically ANYTHING. Imagine the possibilties.

24 My Apprentice: Game Over Again!

My Apprentice: Game Over Again!

OKay, okay this is a bit of a push, buutttt, her potential is clear. 

25 This Mage Desires Mediocrity

This Mage Desires Mediocrity

26 Ichi

Ichi

The lady's blind, a master swordsman, and a musician. Enough said.

27 I’ve Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level

I’ve Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level

Okay, so the MC has been absently killing slimes for the past 300 years, and now her stats are basically maxed out and she DIDN'T EVEN KNOW IT. 

28 Taming the Tomboy

Taming the Tomboy

The MC isn't really OP, but she's definitely strong. It's a pretty funny historical romance manga. If it's a liked genre of yours, then go ahead and read it.

29 BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense.

BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense.

She may seem like a bit of a ditz, but she fits the bill for being OP and it's still a pretty good read, so meh.

30 Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!

Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!

Hmm, alright. The MC really isn't my type, BUT she is OP, so here you go. Still worth a read if you don't mind loli's.

31 Mizutama Honey Boy

Mizutama Honey Boy

If you're looking for a shoujo where the female MC is in the kendo club and can fight off a bear, here you go.

32 Jisatsu shitai Onna Yuusha ni Maou ga Komarasareteimasu!

Jisatsu shitai Onna Yuusha ni Maou ga Komarasareteimasu!

Well, this one is definitely unique. The MC isn't happy to be reincarnated as both invincible and crazy strong, so she's relying on the Demon Lord (the 'strongest') to find a way to kill her.

33 Medaka Box

Medaka Box

In a world of strange and wonderful superpowers, the female lead has to be one of the strongest. Yes, it's hella ecchi, and yes, I'm aware that this isn't the best manga for everyone, but, what can I say, the main girl's crazy strong (like One Punch Man all over again).

34 Song of the Sky Walkers

Song of the Sky Walkers

Okay, the manga as of yet is still pretty early on, so she ain't OP yet (since she's still a kid), buuutttt, by the looks of things, it'll eventually lead to her being super strong after they hurry up and get over introducing her as a kid. 

35 Eiyuu no Musume to Shite Umarekawatta Eiyuu wa Futatabi Eiyuu wo Mezasu

Eiyuu no Musume to Shite Umarekawatta Eiyuu wa Futatabi Eiyuu wo Mezasu

So, the MC is actually a male hero from the past, reincarnated as his two friends' daughter. Probably not your cup of tea, but it's worth a read if you like the genre.

36 Unholy Blood

Unholy Blood

Love this so much. The MC is freaking amazing and the story is interesting. I’m ready for my ship to sail, like pronto. Can’t wait to read more.

40 Love of Kill

Love of Kill

Though I rather female leads who are stronger than the ml, I can sometimes make exceptions, like with this one. I love the dynamic the two leads have with the ml’s psycho-ness and the fl’s headstrong and stern attitude. Interesting story, definitely good at keeping me hooked.
