    Imperator Furiosa Jabassa (simply known as Furiosa) is the deuteragonist of Mad Max: Fury Road and the titular main protagonist of the prequel/spin-off film, Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga. She is a soldier and a former lieutenant officer under Immortan Joe's army, but she betrays him to free "The Five Wives", who are his female sex slaves and concubines. She meets Max Rockatansky throughout her journey, and despite the initial fight between the two, both become allies and team up to drive The Five Wives to a safe environment called "The Green Place".

    Charlize Theron portrays her in Fury Road, while Anya Taylor-Joy (who also voices Princess Peach in The Super Mario Bros. Movie franchise) portrays her in Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, and Alyla Browne portrays a younger Furiosa in Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, who will also portray Maria Robotnik in Sonic the Hedgehog 3.

    Why She's a Heroine Soldier

    1. Her backstory is tragic; she was kidnapped from her childhood home, the Green Place (at least 7,000 days ago), along with her mother. Her mother died three days after the abduction.
      • This is further shown in Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga since she was younger in the film, and certain scenes make her tragic backstory even more understandable.
    2. She is a strong-willed and moral leader, as she saved the five wives from Immortan Joe without regard.
    3. She is skilled and fearless; she can easily hold her own against many of the film's antagonists. She is also resourceful, strategic, determined, and willing to do whatever it takes to achieve her goals.
    4. The weapons she's armed with are a handgun and an SKS rifle, and her holding the latter also makes her a complete badass.
    5. Her makeup is impressive and amazing in terms of being dark.
      • Her makeup in Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is also good and looks dark and cool.
    6. While she initially fought Max at first upon meeting him, she eventually becomes allies with him and helps him through their journeys.
      • Their relationship is also amazing; when Max tries to steal the rig, he doesn't know the code to bypass the kill switches, so he joins up with her; she also tells him about her redemption story.
      • As the film progresses, they both develop trust and help each other through their lives and the war they thought against Joe's forces since they both were attacked by the biker gang and Joe's forces, but both were able to fight off the former while in the rig, and when the rig was stuck in the mud, they slowed down the latter.
    7. Even after her aforementioned fight with Max, she (and her band) can still be a complete badass along with Max. Her ability to drive the war rig also makes her powerful, and she is also an amazing driver in general, like in the sandstorm scene.
    8. Charlize Theron gives an amazing performance as her and is one of the particular highlight performances of Mad Max: Fury Road along with Hardy's performance.
      • Anya-Taylor Joy also performs excellently as Furiosa in her titular film.
    9. Speaking of her titular film, Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, it did excellently well in explaining her origin story, why she lost her mother, and how she became who she was.

    Trivia

    • She was originally intended to be one of Immortan Joe's wives but was later changed because she was infertile.
