This is my opinion on my favorite disney heroines, these are the ones that I love. I like all the disney heroines except Ms. Callaway(Home On The Range), Captain Amelia(Treasure Planet), and Esmeralda. I don't hate or dislike Callaway or Amelia, just a neutral feeling but I do hate Esmeralda. Besides those three I like all disney heroines but these twenty I'm love to death. I will also include a quote that the heroine has said or sung. I will only be including hand drawn animated heroines, not compuuter animated ones. Please leave a comment on what you think and don't just make it one of those simple "Good job" things, I worked hard on this and want more than just that. Well I'll stop talking and get to the actual article, enjoy.

20.Belle(Beauty and The Beast)
I want adventure in the greatwide somewhere! I wanted more than I can tell!

Don't hate it's just an opinion and I do love her, she's just not one of my top favorites. I can relate to her because I live in a small boring town that's full of complete morons. I kinda feel like they talk behind my back like they do with her. People think I'm odd because I'm a teenage boy who hates sports and isn't like other guys. Just like how she's not like other girls, she actually has a brain inside her head and likes to read books. I love that she's not afraid to stand up to Beast and just tells him off. However the reason she's not higher is because I think she's too much of a Mary Sue. She's beautiful, smart, speaks her mind, kind hearted, doesn't judge people by their looks, and it seems like everything is just done for her. I'm not calling her a damsel in distress but she's definitely a Mary Sue. I prefer more flawed disney heroines because they're more realistic. But I will admit that she's definitely one of the most beautiful disney heroines there are.

19.Pocahontas(Pocahontas)
Lost forever if I never knew you!

Yeah I know I'll probably be getting boos but I don't really care. I love how she's a free spirt and goes wherever the wind takes her. I love how she wasn't afraid to stand up for what she believe in and stopped a war from happening. If we had more people like Pocahontas there'd be no more wars in this world. Too bad there's not because the world is full of morons who think we need to solve problems with fighting. I love how she is at the beginning, I've always wanted to try to jump of a cliff like she did. However I think her personality started becoming duller when she meets John Smith. She's also pretty, smart(somwhat), kind, brave, and heroic. Plus she was based off a real native american princess.

18.Shanti(The Jungle Book 2)
Come on Mowgli, we'll be late!

I'm judging her on how she is in the sequel because we don't really see her personality in the original. All we knew from the original was that she was an amazing singer and that she's beautiful. However the sequel shows us she's more than just a beautiful girl. She's mature, smart, can be fun, is witty, and kind. I love how she does from a weak coward to brave and heroic. I love how even though she follows the rules she was willing to break them to help a friend. She went into the jungle which she's terrified of dispite the danger to find Mowgli. She was willing to over come her fear for her true love, she cares more about her friends than herself. She's not higher because she's kinda kill joy even though it's sorta for good reason.

17.Meg(Hercules)
At least out loud, I won't say I'm in love!

I know people are gonna hate for this but I do love her, she's my favorite character in the movie. I think one thing that's special about her is that she's the only disney heroine I think is ugly. I love to have a character that I adore that I find ugly, but people don't find ugly. Even though she's ugly on the outside in my opinion, she's beautiful on the inside. It was so selfless how she gave up her chance of freedom to protect Hercules. Also how she gave up her own life to save Hercules, with no thought of herself. I love how sassy, sarcastic, and witty she is because that's alot like how am almost all the time. I can also relate to how she's afraid of getting hurt and falling in love. She use to be higher but I think as time goes by I just started to love other heroines more.

16.Jane(Tarzan)
And daddy, they tooked my boot!

This chick is hilarious! Especially during the chase scene with the monkeys. I love how she acts when she explains to her dad and Clayton because she looks like she's gone insane. She's pretty, cute, kind, an animal lover, artistic, brave, heroic, and intelligent in fact one of the most intelligent. I love how she kinda freaks out a little when Tarzan and her are in a tree. I quoted things she said alot as a kid because it was all so funny. I relate to how she's torn because her heart is telling her two different things one stay with her true love or go home with who father who needs her. She listened to her heart and it all ended up right. The she's not higher because the others are more charming.

15.Jenny(Oliver and Company)
Wait'll you taste this, it's a secret resipe I just invented!

I hate not having her higher because I really love her and she's my favorite character in the movie. I think she's underrated because hardly anyone really thinks about, those who do usually think she's nothing more but a pretty face. I think she's so much more than a pretty face, she's brave, kindhearted, loves animals, and is somewhat heroic. I think her life is kinda sad, even though she's rich and has everything anyone could want. Her parents are always working and don't have time with her, she's left with the butler who means well but is so stiff and not very fun. I love that she was willing to go into a stange part of the city to find Oliver all alone(besides with Georgette). She didn't care that she'd be lost, bugged, kidnapped, or possible kill by a nut job all she cared about was finding Oliver. The reason she's not higher is because the others are more active.

14.Nala(The Lion King)
Don't you understand? You're our only hope!

We may not see too much of her compared to most characters in the movie and most heroines but she's awesome. As a cub I love her love for adventure and fun, I also love how she could always pin Simba and prove girls can be just as tough as boys. I'm a guy but I actually believe girls can be just as good at anything a guy can, and apperently they can even do some of those things in high heels. How do you girls do that? When she's older and she runs away from home it's actually not for herself, it's to find help for the pride lands. She could have just ran away and been like not my problem, but she doesn't everything she did was for her pride. She's loyal to her family and friends. I also love how in the sequel she's more openminded to Kovu than Simba was. She knows her daughter loves him and is willing to give him a chance. However there are other heroines that I like more than her. There are also characters in The Lion King I like more than her like Simba, Timon and Pumba.

13.Lilo(Lilo and Stitch)
Ohana means family and family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten!

I love this crazy little girl and how she acts all dramatic when the social workers there "Leave me alone to die", "My friends need to be punished" lol. I love that she's different from pretty much everyone on the island because that means she's unique which means she's special. I can relate to people thinking I'm a freak and treating me different like the way she is. I loved when she attacked Mertle during hula class, I was cheering "YEAH LILO! BITE HER! PUNCH HER! PULL HER HAIR OFF! BREAK HER GLASSES! MAKE HER LOOK UGLIER THAN SHE ALREADY IS!" obviously if I was there I wouldn't be much help. I grew up with her movies and the series so she'll always hold a special place in my heart. Even though Stitch is usually saving the day she's heroic and brave too, plus she's as cute as a button.

12.Cinderella(Cinderella)
No matter how your heart is greiving, if you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish will come true!

She use to be in my top five, I think the reason for that was because I kept thinking of her in the third movie. She has more developement as a character in the third movie she was brave, heroic, strongwilled, stood up for herself, and for the record beautiful much prettier than in the original. Anyway for the original she's kind, sweet, nice, pretty(but not beautiful), and does sorta stand up for herself. I love that through all these years she stays gentle and kind when any other person would be bitter and rude. I like that everyday she's able to deal with her lame step-family, I would have ran away if I was her. The reason she's not higher is because she's just as good a character in the original as she is in the third movie. She's a more active, independent, and clever heroine if she was like how she was in the third movie in the original she'd be in my top ten.

11.Tiana(The Princess and The Frog)
*hits Naveen* Keep your slimy self away from me!

Finally a disney heroine who has a job, unless you count Mulan's service in the army. I love that she works hard to make her dreams come true and doesn't just wait for it to happen by just wishing on a star. Sure she wishes on stars but she knows it can only take her half way there and that she needs to put her own hard work into it. She knows that no matter what if she keeps working hard she will make her dream come ture. She doesn't wanna take the easy way out because it never works out in the end when you do. I love how she doesn't take anything from Naveen and tells him to get off his lazy butt and work, I also love that she hits him. I love how she doesn't fall for Facilier's trick and trust her heart because she knows what's right. She's an amazing cook and singer, she's caring, funny, witty, and stunning definitely one of the most beautiful disney heroines. However it takes her forever to learn how to have fun and just lacks something my top ten have. So unfortunately she's one spot shy of the cut.

10.Snow White(Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs)
Someday my prince will come!

Yes the one who started is all makes it to the top ten on my favorite list. She's sweet, cute, kind, pretty, optimistic, caring, gentle, and is actually brave. It's brave of her to be able to go through all she's been and still stay so positive. I've always enjoyed her and her movie ever since I was a little boy. I know some people think she's one of the weakest heroines and she isn't one of their favorites but she will always be one of my favorites. Besides if it wasn't for her we wouldn't have any of these heroines of these movies. She came before a young lion became a king, before peasent boy unleased a genie, before a beauty tamed a beast, before a mermaid dreamed of life on the land, before a glass slipper revealed it's magic. I know people think she's stupid but I don't think so at all, she backed away from the hag when she was offering her the apple and only took it so not to be rude. She let the hag in because she seemedto be having a heartattack! What would you do if you saw an old person having a heartattack asking for some water? Let them die? The reason she's not higher is because she's not as realistic as the rest.

9.Eilonwy(The Black Cauldron)
Girl? Girl?! If it weren't for this girl, you would still be in the Horned King's dungeon!

Absolutely love this girl she's so awesome and unfortunately underrated in my opinion. I actually went most of my childhood without it, in fact when I first saw it I didn't know it was a disney movie. I love how she didn't just wait for someone to come and save her but she just tries to escape herself. There's also the plus that she rescued her love interest. Isn't that the twist on the story? It's the brave little princess coming to the rescue! I love how when Taran is acting sexist she just goes off on him and is all like "Oh really? Well if girls don't know much, than how come it took a girl to get you out of the dungeon? Because apperently you couldn't escape without the help of a girl! So don't you give me any of that you idiot". Finally a heroine that can stand up for herself! She's not afraid to stand up to anyone even her love interest. I kinda think she has magic powers because she does have that magic ball that follows her. She's brave, intelligent, beautiful, kind, heroic, and just awesome. However she's not higher because she doesn't really show up until in the middle of the story.

8.Alice(Alice In Wonderland)
Oh Mr. Rabbit! Wait! Please!

The little girl who wondered into a wonderful land called Wonderland. I wanna say for the record that I believe that Wonderland wasn't just a dream, I believe she actually went to a place called Wonderland. I love how realistic she is, I mean who doesn't drift off into lala land when somebody is talking about something boring. I love how curious she is! Who couldn't wanna know what a talking rabbit wearing clothes, carrying a watch saying "I'm late" is late for? I love that she does go along with nonsense but also does logic. I love that she's knowledgeable but not one that's no fun but is also really fun-loving. She does try to find her way home but she's just a little girl so she can't do much. I think she could be heroic if she tried. I loved when she went off on the queen even though it didn't turn out good for her. She's brave, intelligent, fun, pretty, kind, and curious. Once again the only reason she's not higher is because I simple love the others more.

7.Jane(Peter Pan 2: Return To Neverland)
All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust!

Lately I've been really into Return To Neverland and everytime I keep falling in love with Jane. In fact she even beat my favorite character from the original, Tinkerbell. I think she's underrated, people don't give her enough credit just because she's a sequel character. Which is so stupid, I think people are too bais and try to find something wrong with a sequel and the characters to hate them. Anyway back to Jane! I think even before her change in the movie she stays a dreamer who loves stories, because we see her enjoy listening to her mothers stories when her mother is telling one to Danny, until she snaps out of it. So what if she's a kill joy? It's not like she doesn't have good reason, considering her dad left when she was seven, a war going on, and being sent away to the country. I relate to how she feels because I don't believe in faith, trust, and most definitely pixie dust. She didn't mean to kill Tinkerbell, and didn't blow the whistle she threw it into the water so it's not her fault Peter and his friends were captured. Besides she becomes fun and saves the day in the end. She's beautiful, intelligent, brave, heroic, kind, witty, and fun. The only reason the others are higher is because I simple love them more.

6.Kiara(The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride)
A wise King once told me, "We are One." I didn't understand him then, now I do.

That's right I love Kiara alot more than her mother, in fact I even like Kiara more than my favorite characters from the original Timon and Pumba. I grew up with their TV show and until Kiara came into existance my favorite characters from The Lion King franchise was Timon and Pumba. Personality-wise I think she's a mixture of both Ariel and Pocahontas. She has Ariel's trouble making, adventurous, bubbly, stubborn, fun loving personality. From Pocahontas she's serious when she needs to, knows when fighting isn't the answer, and is wise beyond her years. I think she's better than her dad because he wanted at first to just completely abandon his pride, while Kiara she wanted to run away knew she had to help her pride. The outsiders do look different but Kiara doesn't see a difference inside them, they're just like her and her people. She knows that Kovu loves her for who she is and believes that he wasn't part of the ambush. She knows she has to be the future queen but wants to at the same time stay who she is. The only reason she's not in my top 5 is because I simply love the others more.

5.Madellaine(The Hunchback of Notre Dame 2)
I love Quasimodo!

I think I'm the only one who loves her enough to put her this high, but I love her so much. She's intelligent, beautiful, kind, brave, and heroic. I love that she has flaws like being clumsy and insecurity. She doesn't judge people by the way they look bue by the way they are on the inside. I know that she did hurt Quasimodo but it was to protect him and to keep him from getting hurt. She didn't want to hurt it! I've always loved her more than Esmeralda, but I hate Esmeralda so I love alot of people more than Esmeralda. Madellaine is an amazing singer, we hear her voice actress sing in the end credits. I think she should be given more credit because she's a good character. There's also when Zephyr goes missing and she knows where he is, she didn't have to tell Quasimodo, Esmeralda, and Pheobus. She could have just kept quiet because she doesn't owe them anything, but no she helps them even though they don't trust her. Her life is even worse than Cinderella she was taken by the circus because of one mistake she made. She was just six years old, was starving and it was only a few coins. I have to say I actually love her more than all the Hunchback characters even Quasimodo. She see's that even though Quasimodo is hideous on the outside he's one of the most beautiful people anyone will ever meet on the inside. Plus I love the ending when they both declair their love for each other.

4.Angel(Lady and The Tramp 2: Scamp's Adventure)
You've got your own style! Don't ya tenderfoot?

The best animal heroine by far no contest! She's WAY better than Lady by miles! She's streetsmart and I think she's brave to try to survive on the streets practically alone. The junkyard dogs and Buster aren't much of a family so she's basically alone. Her background is interesting because they's had five families that have kicked her out, so her life basically stinks. I think her life is tragic because she's gone her whole life not being accepted and has gone feeling unwanted and unloved. Even though all of this she still hopes of maybe one day having a family to call her own. She tries to help Scamp make the right decision to be with his family who loves him. She's not afraid to stand up to Buster like the junkyard dogs are. Even when Scamp breaks his promise she still tries to help him, she truely loves him! She is definitely one of the best disney characters ever and the best animated girls, not just disney but animated PERIOD. Also I wanna say I love her voice it's beautiful, this is the only time I actually like Susan Egan's voice. She was okay as Meg and was just plain awful in the broadway version of Beauty and The Beast as Belle. With Meg it's pitchy in places and with Belle it sounds more like she's screaming than singing, with Angel it's angelic and beautiful. Also she's just the cutest little dog ever! She's only not higher because I just like the others more.

3.Jasmine(Aladdin)
A whole new world! A dazeling place I never knew! But now from way up here it's crystal cleat that now I'm in a whole knew world with you!

The sassy strong willing princess that won the hearts of many especially Aladdin. First I have to say she's truely one of the most beautiful disney women. I love that she's not afraid to speak her mind and won't take anything from anyone. She's not some kind of prize to be one she's a human being! I like that she ran away because she doesn't want people to live her life for her, it wasn't the best thing to do but still. It was so sweet of her to give an apple to that pooh little kid, once again not a bright thing to do when you have no money. I love how she managed to figure out that Ali was Aladdin because it was clearly obvious. I've also enjoyed her in the sequels and the series. She's brave, heroic, beautiful, kind, caring, strongwilled, stubborn, and will stand up for herself. She didn't make it high because I relate more to my top two than I do her.

2.Mulan(Mulan)
When will my reflection so who I am inside?

Of course the hero of all China had to be high on this list or there wouldn't be justice. She started off insecure and clumsy to brave, heroic, and determind. It was clever how she made the mountain blow up because she knew it was the only way to stop the huns. I like how they made her work hard to develope into a different character and didn't just become totally different out of no where. I relate to her being insecure and feeling like a complete loser and a nobody. It was amazing how she knew she was breaking the rules but she just had to so she could help her father. She broke rules such as taking her fathers invetation, cutting her hair, dressing like a man, joined the army, ran away from home, and lied to the chinese army. In the end she became China's greatest hero and she had save them all. Even when they didn't believe her she still kept trying to help. She's definitely the bravest, most heroic, smartest disney heroine there is. I also think she's a natual and unique exotic beauty. The reason she's not number one is because nobod will ever beat my number one.

1.Ariel(The Little Mermaid) and Melody(The Little Mermaid 2: Return To The Sea)
Ariel: Up where they walk! Up where they run! Up where they stay all day in the sun! Melody: Wish my mother could see it, the sea is my song for a moment, just a moment I belong!

I can't decide which one of these two amazing mermaid princesses I love more so they're tied. I love that they're both the same only slightly different. They both have things that's better than the other Ariel has a better voice and movie but Melody is prettier and smarter. However they're both equally brave, heroic, fun-loving, kind, adventurous, sweet, bubbly, and curious. Bother are increadably gorgeous and so funny. I love that Ariel was willing to give up and do so much to become human and for love. Eric wan't the entire reason for her wanting to be human, she wanted to be human WAY before she ever saw Eric. I love that she was the first princess who saves her love interest. Melody the first young heroine to save the day and defeat the villian, even her mom didn't do that. The only disney heroines who did that besides Melody are Mulan, Jane(Peter Pan), and Tiana. I adore how they both stand up for what they believe and do whatever it takes to prove themselves right. These two will always be my favorite animated characters ever no matter what.
