Badass female characters needed.

The two most compelling female action characters I've seen are Hanna and Nikita (the original French movie one). The Mass Effect series does 'female badass' pretty well, and so too does George R. R. Martin (Game of Thrones et al.). Peter Watts is good at profoundly damaged female badasses. What other movies, games, books, and TV shows would I like that feature well-written female badasses?

I've watched a few 'lighter' shows--Chuck, Castle, etc.--and while those shows are lighthearted fun, they're not especially compelling.
