Truly the best kind of female character is the one who is gorgeous, sexy, smart... and could probably kill you with her pinky finger.
There are so many femme fatale characters on TV these days, it was hard to narrow it down to just 19! We combed through all of the best and the worst (and the craziest) kickass women on TV, and we finally came up with a list of girls that you would probably want to avoid if they weren't so amazing and alluring.
Check out 19 of TV's greatest femme fatales, and be sure to add any we missed in comments below!
This fiery redhead is practically the devil incarnate. Okay, technically she's just a demon, but she's given those Winchester boys just as much trouble as Lucifer ever did! The worst part? You can't even exorcise her when she gets particularly nasty.
Rebekah Mikaelson (The Originals)
Rebekah's wiles never seem to find her love, but they do come in handy whenever she needs to seduce whoever is unfortunate enough to become her next meal. Just don't get too handsy, or you'll end up on the floor like this guy.
Katherine Pierce (The Vampire Diaries)
If you've never seen Katherine Pierce in action, then boy, are you missing out. She's a vampire with a vendetta, and most of the time, she's about ten steps ahead of you in the plotting and mayhem process. Watch out for that sexy smile, it comes with fangs!
Being trained by a super secret government organization as an assassin and a seductress pretty much gives Nikita the edge in Femme Fatale category. Lucky for you, she's got a heart of gold – most of the time.
Sydney Bristow (Alias)
If you don't think Sydney Bristow is one of the sexiest women in the world, I urge you to take a look at this gif and reconsider. Then, know that about 10 seconds after putting on this sexy show, she strangles the misogynistic pig in front of her and complains about about the uncomfortable nature of lingerie.
Sara Lance (Arrow)
Another assassin, trained by considerably scarier people than the government. Sara's famous line, "No woman should ever suffer at the hands of men," pretty much wraps up exactly why she's on this list. And, of course, her ability to seduce and kick butt in the same scene.
