From the sharp-tongued Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction to the deadly Bride in Kill Bill, Tarantino's women are never identical.

Quentin Tarantino is famous for creating complex and intriguing characters in his films, and he is ingeniously talented in writing female ones.

Each of his films has at least one female role model that not just became iconic in the history of cinematography but stole the hearts of millions of viewers around the world.

Here are the top 5 female leads that are most loved by Tarantino fans.

1. The Bride (Uma Thurman) — Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2

Perhaps one of the most iconic female characters in Tarantino's repertoire, the Bride, aka Beatrix Kiddo (yes, she has a name) is a former assassin who is seeking revenge against her former boss and lover Bill, and all her fake friends.

Armed with a samurai sword and a determination to take down everyone on her hit list, the Bride is fierce, deadly, and unforgettable.

2. Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) — Pulp Fiction

Uma Thurman has given us not one, but two favorite characters. Mia Wallace is the wife of gangster Marsellus Wallace and a force that is hard to deal with.

Her sleek black bob, red lipstick, and sharp wit charmed the audience and the film's protagonist, Vincent Vega (John Travolta) so much, that the latter was even willing to do unusual things for her — like dancing in one of the film's most memorable scenes.

3. O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu) — Kill Bill Vol. 1

O-Ren Ishii, played by Lucy Liu, is a former Yakuza boss and one of the Bride's targets in Kill Bill Vol. 1. The story of O-Ren is tragic, as as a teenager she witnessed the murder of her parents and was forced into the Yakuza.

Her style, intelligence, and fierce fighting skills make her an unforgettable villain. And, you know, if any of you got anything else to say, now's not the right time.

4. Shosanna Dreyfus (Melanie Laurent) — Inglourious Basterds

Shosanna Dreyfus, played by Melanie Laurent, is a French Jewish woman who seeks revenge after her family is killed by the Nazis during World War II.

Her determination to find justice and her sneaky plan that she was hatching for many years are both fascinating and inspiring, and when we finally see her getting the revenge, we get a full revelation of one of Tarantino's fiercest and toughest female characters.

5. Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie ) — Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Margot Robbie plays Sharon Tate, a rising Hollywood actress of the 1960s and the wife of director Roman Polanski.

Her character is portrayed as kind, free-spirited, and full of hope for the future, and although her fate wasn't favorable, thanks to Margot Robbie we were able to see the beautiful and pure soul of Sharon that immediately touched fans' hearts and let her character become one of the most beloved in Tarantino movies.
