Anime heroines who would be the last girl in a horror movie
Lots of girls come through horror movies out of luck and desperation, but characters like MHA and Hellsing have their own unique ways of surviving.
“There are certain rules that you have to follow in order to survive a horror movie,” but no one ever follows them. Couples are having sex, people are dating, and no one is confirming that the killer is really dead. It’s mostly luck that survives the night, but certain traits can dramatically improve a character’s chances of survival. Attributes like intellect, virginity, courage, and the ability to repel an abuser have been found to be particularly helpful. Many anime girls have these attributes, so they’re the ones who would likely stand in a horror movie.
Of course, to make things fair, there are a few ground rules. First, no girls with superhuman strength. It’s pretty obvious that Sakura Haruno could beat Michael Myers in a fight. Second, the girls in the horror anime will be kept to a minimum. Such girls are clearly either doomed to die or more than capable of handling anything a standard horror movie can throw at them.
Ochako Uraraka (My Hero Academia)
Uraraka might just be a hero in training, but she has a lot of skills to survive a horror movie. Her classes at UA High emphasize the importance of assessing a situation and thinking on your feet. Having this mindset is necessary for both saving lives and stopping the bad guys. In addition, Uraraka has been specially trained to apprehend and disarm opponents armed with knives. Sadly, the topic is who would be the last girl standing at the end of a horror movie, so she couldn’t use her skills to save her friends. Still, at the very least, she should be able to survive on her own until the end of the movie.
Sir Integra Hellsing (Hellsing)
Sir Integra Fairbrooke Wingates Hellsing is not afraid of any ghosts. In fact, the Hellsing organization is almost exclusively concerned with eliminating supernatural threats. Integra typically employs vampires with guns and paramilitary groups who also have guns, but she herself has a number of abilities. She is intelligent, unwavering, virginal and when necessary, a fighter. She could be surrounded by Nazi vampires and her reaction would be to pull out a sword and say “Come to me!” Instead of a horror movie with a single killer, Integra would work well in a movie with all kinds of creatures bumping into each other in the night. In that regard, Integra would function less like a Laurie Strode character and more like an Ash Williams.
Mamiya (Fist of the Pole Star)
Mamiya is another girl who would survive in a multi-monster scenario. In Fist of the North Star, the last of humanity lives in a post-apocalyptic setting à la Mad Max. In this world, violent motorcycle gangs are rampant and terrorize innocent civilians. These harsh conditions lead Mamiya to adopt a combat-oriented lifestyle in order to stand up for herself and those around her. She seems sweet, but she can be fierce and intelligent when the situation calls for it. She usually handles a gang’s mooks while Kenshiro handles the boss. She would do well in a zombie apocalypse movie, as long as there aren’t some ridiculously powerful zombies among the scum.
Yamada (B Gata H Kei)
Yamada is said to be another likely candidate for Final Girl due to her virginity. It’s pretty hilarious how bad she is for having sex. She starts her anime by promising to have sex with 100 guys by the end of high school. Despite this promise, she ends up spending her whole story trying and failing to make it through with someone very special. Yamada’s story would be pretty funny to watch unfold in a horror comedy slasher movie. She and her boyfriend would survive because they are the only couple who have never had sex. The movie would end with the two about to commit the deed, but the Undead Slayer shows up for one last scare before the credits roll.
