4. Joanna Dark
An Operative for the Carrington Institute, Joanna Dark is essentially the female James Bond. Given the code name “Perfect Dark”, she first appeared in the N64 first person shooter with the same name. Perfect Dark on the N64 was a huge success, arguably the best first person shooter on the console behind Goldeneye. Although her Gameboy Color and Xbox 360 titles didn’t have the same success, Joanna Dark is one of the coolest female protagonists.
