A Definitive Ranking Of 13 Disney Princesses By Badassness

The bravery, intelligence, and capacity for love of these girls (or rather, some of these girls) puts us mere mortals to shame.

Posted on

13. Aurora

Sure, the girl can sing (but only because of a magic charm). Other than that, she sleeps. And waits for a guy whose name she doesn't even know to molest her.Badass score: 1/10

Badass score: 1/10

12. Snow White

Animal psychic with no sense of danger (e.g., falling asleep in a house clearly occupied by 7 odd men). No wonder she blindly eats an apple from a demented stranger. To then sleep, as per Aurora, only this time to be molested by a man she hasn't even met.Badass score: 1/10

11. Cinderella

Again, an animal psychic (except when it comes to cats). At least has guts and initiative to ask for permission to go to the dance. And can charm a guy with her moves (vs. with her sleeping).Badass score: 2/10

10. Ariel

Intellectually curious, goes on illicit adventures, and saves her prince's life. But then agrees to painful plastic surgery in return for... her voice. Can it get any more metaphorical?Badass score: 3/10

9. Belle

Intellectually curious and dreams of a more adventurous life. Turns down a douchey guy. But then, in a tale as old as time, falls in love with her abusive kidnapper. Badass score: 4/10

8. Jasmine

Asserts the right to choose who she marries. And ensnares the hottest prince of them all who takes her on magic carpet rides. That alone is pretty badass.Badass score: 5/10

7. Rapunzel

Uses her hair, singing abilities, and intelligence to repeatedly save her prince. But then marries a convicted criminal. Which is bad, not badass.Badass score: 6/10

6. Tiana

A self-made woman and successful entrepreneur. Who then goes on to marry a lazy and talentless gold dinner. Again, her poor taste in men lets her down.Badass score: 7/10

5. Pocahontas

Fosters diplomatic ties between two warring factions. Way more athletically able than John Smith (especially at rowing). And also saves his life.Badass score: 8/10

4. Merida

Amazing at archery and horse-riding. Turns down unattractive Scottish guys. Takes responsibility and determinedly sorts out the mess she created. Has the most fabulous hair. And one of the few princesses who is happily single.Badass score: 9/10

3. Elsa

Wisely halts her sister's decision to marry the awful Hans. Overcomes fear of her own powers to then take control of her kingdom, sing one of the most epic anthems, and above all, allow Olaf to enjoy summer.Badass score: 9/10

1. Mulan

Uses her intelligence to kick all of the male soldiers' asses. Fights for her country. Honored as a national hero. But most of all, risks her life to save her father from enlisting. Now, that, is badass.Badass score: 10/10
