As long as my last post touched on female characters who regularly abused male ones for the sake of laughs, I ought to cite one of the most prevalent "anime amazons," Sakura of NARUTO, who is given to slugging the title character.

To be sure, there is some degree of "equal time," as when Sakura has a one-on-one with her foremost female rival Ino;

The series also gives a certain amount of attention to an equally violent "mature woman," name of Tsunade, who belongs to a character-type one rarely sees in American or European comics.
