I got a bit tired of all those weak FL who can't do anything without a man, or those FL who become "lady in distress". I want some amazing girl that are independant and full authority over her subordinate. I would like some recommandation about a female MC who is a leader. - She can lead anything (sect, business, organization, kingdom, empire, territory, mafia, army.....). But it has to be "influencial" and able to have an impact in the industry, politic or economy (so it shouldn't be the small restaurant that no one know about). - The theme doesn't matter: if it's modern, fantasy, ancient China, western fantasy, sci-fi... as long as it respects what I said. - It can be on any website (Novelupdate, Royalroad, Scribblehub, Webnovel, Quotev, Wattpad...), and the author's nationality doesn't matter. I also accept MTL. - I want the FL to be clever, capable and able to protect herself. I actually like OP FL and Mary Sue. I'm also fine with physically weak FL but still owning a business (after all you don't need strength in a modern world, everything is about brain). - The FL should be independant and not always rely on a man. It's fine if there is romance, but the FL need to have her own subordinate who are loyal to HER, not just borrowing some men from the ML. And also her own money. - It doesn't matter if the FL is a villain or an angel as long as she knows what she wants and stick to it. - PLEASE, I don't want a ML who forcefully kiss or touch the FL without her wanting to. I usually instantly drop novels that do that. - I also don't really like when the FL disguise as a boy for the entire novel. I kind of don't see the point of having a female MC if she is gonna act as a boy. So I think you understand now what I'm looking for. Now I'm going to give you a list of EVERY novel that I have read that PERFECTLY respect what I said above. You can also check them if you didn't read one and like this theme (half of those novel are not famous at all) - https://www.novelupdates.com/series/kyuuketsu-hime-wa-barairo-no-yume-o-miru/ (She become her game character in another world with all her NPC subordinate (a bit like Overlord) so she is the queen of her kingdoms and is worshipped by her fanatical subordinates. All kingdoms are afraid of her and don't dare to offend her. The beginning is similar to Overlord but with a female MC.) - https://www.novelupdates.com/series/ascendance-of-a-bookworm/ (She starts from very poor and slowly create a business. Her business become more and more influential and start to get the attention from nobles. Later, she also become the leader of an orphanage. Very realistic world-building. There is an anime and manga. WARNING: Unlike most story in this list, the MC is not badass nor strong, but she still manage to become very influential. The ML is also from a very poor background and he is pretty much her assistant, so she is "superior" in wealth and influence.) - https://www.novelupdates.com/series/common-sense-of-a-dukes-daughter/ (She is reincarnated as a duke's daughter and open 3-4 huge companies using her previous life's knowledge from Earth. She is also the substitute leader of the dukedom. She become very influential in the country and even in the entire continent.) - https://www.novelupdates.com/series/dragons-bloodline/ (The first 30-40 chapters are about adventuring and she visites several places (beastman tribe, elf, etc). After that, she create her own kingdom (and become the absolute queen) and absorb the tribe/countries that she visited until her country become one of the most powerful in the continent. She also has her own army. It's a yuri novel.) - https://www.novelupdates.com/series/pampered-consort-of-the-fragrant-orchard/ (In an ancient China setting, she is transmigrated in a small and poor village. She opens a business and slowly become more and more influential. Around chapter 30/40, there is a time-skip and her business became extremely influential and she is richer than many nobles, but her identity is kept secret. She also somehow inherit a sect and become its leader. After the time skip, she is pretty much equal with the ML in strength, money and influence even though he is a prince.). - https://www.novelupdates.com/series/okitara-20nen-nandesukedo-akuyaku-reijo-no-sono-ato-no-sono-ato/ (Probably one of the strongest and most influential FL ever. She is a duke's daughter but is extremly OP, everyone on the continent is afraid of her. She owns the 4-5 most influential companies in the world that can make an entire country bankrupt with a single order from her if she wants to. She is the saint in a church. She can destroy a city with a single attack. No romance by the way (it's not like there is anyone who deserve her anyway) and the novel is completed). - https://www.novelupdates.com/series/space-and-rebirth-the-favored-genius-doctor-and-businesswoman/ (It's in a modern setting (Earth). She slowly open several company or cooperate with others. She goes from poor to rich. She is a strong female CEO with superpower (a space), she is very good at martial art, and a genius doctor. The story is very slow and has a lot of chapter, she is also young and not yet 18 so she goes to highschool (she is a genius so she has perfect grade), so the first cooperation come around chapter 80, and the first company open around chapter 200). - https://www.novelupdates.com/series/kuma-kuma-kuma-bear/ (An OP female protagonist in a bear outfit. She open a few companies and make connection with nobles, royalties and guild leaders. She is very lazy so she let others manage her companies while she goes adventuring. No romance at all.) - https://www.novelupdates.com/series/saving-80000-gold-in-an-another-world-for-retirement/ (Female MC with the power of "absolute teleport", so she can teleport anything and anywhere: she can teleport from Earth to Fantasy World, and she can teleport an entire building or even islands. She open a small shop in the first arc, but then she become a viscountess in the second arc so she manage her territory (and she does it very well using Earth's knowledge). No romance at all.). - https://www.novelupdates.com/series/tileas-worries/ (The female MC is a "normal" human girl who like cooking but she somehow became the absolute leader of the Evil God Army and make the entire kingdom shake. She is extremely OP. The difference with the others novel in this list is that... she doesn't even know that she is OP and that she rules an army of demons, she only thinks that they are a bunch of chuunybiou who need some medical attention. It's full of misunderstanding, so expect a good and funny comedy. No romance at all.) - https://www.novelupdates.com/series/demon-noble-girl-story-of-a-careless-demon/ (The FL is a princess, but she is actually secretly a demon. She has several strong demons who serve her, and hundreds of minions. She is also very OP even though everyone thinks that she is a weak princess who need to be protected XD) - https://www.novelupdates.com/series/demon-wangs-golden-favorite-fei/ (It's in a cultivation world. The FL pretend to be weak but she is EXTREMELY SECRETIVE, she hides her identities and do it well. Even after chapter 100, the ML still doesn't know anything about the FL's other identities. She is the leader of one of the 2 biggest sect on the continent and she has a lot of extremely strong subordinates. She also own 3 companies that even the emperor don't dare to offend and all the nobles are looking up at them, she is extremely rich. She is also incredibly strong, probably the strongest woman in the world when she is serious. She is also the best divine doctor that many people are looking for to get cured. She is also a princess after marying the ML. She secretly help her friends using her business, for example they are like "wtf, why is the biggest jeverly company offering me their most expansive product for free??!". The ML is also very capable but he is quite mysterious so I won't spoil his identity.) - https://www.webnovel.com/book/the-villainess-aims-for-a-peaceful-life_13369623205579505 (It's quite similar to "Common sense of a Duke's Daughter", maybe even better. The FL is a very hardworking noble's daughter who create several huge companies who quickly become very influential on the continent. She also picked up some people from the slum to works for her, so she has a lot of loyal subordinates. She is not physically the strongest, but she is the most beautiful, elegant and hard-working lady. So with her abbilities, her status as a noble and her business, even a prince doesn't deserve her. There is still no ML after 90+ chapter but there are some hints.) - https://www.webnovel.com/book/reincarnation-of-the-businesswoman-at-school_11806267105539605 (It's in a modern setting. The reincarnated assassin FL slowly build her business while still being a highschool student. She is a genius amongst genius, and she has superpower (space, enhanced strength, healing abbilities, X-ray vision....). She become richer and richer while hiding her identity and she become more and more influential. She opens around 8-10 companies I think, and she secretly become the boss of huge mafia (she starts from nothing and everything is detailed so it takes around 500 chapters). She also make many connection with other CEO, political official, gang leader, super stars...). - https://www.webnovel.com/book/the-schoolgirl-secret-agent_16784211605225405 (The FL got reincarnated in the same world and at the same moment of her death in a 15 years old body. So, she still have the business and mafia that she owned in her previous life. She is still at school but she is secretly the leader of one of the two most powerful mafia in the world, so she has thousands of very strong subordinates. She is also secretly the CEO of a company in the top 5 in the world. In her new life, she also open another business while she is in school. She was also (in her previous life) a famous sport car driver who won many award but with her face hidden. Oh, she also join the chinese military as a special soldier. She also have the level to play profesionnaly in basketball, and other sport, but I guess I'm going to stop here with her abilities because the list would be too big. By the way, her mother is poor so the FL will help her financially and even hiring her in her company without her mother knowing that she actually owns it. Oh, and when someone annoy her, she just kill them lol. There is also one of her classmate's father who is a gang leader, but he is actually a small subordinate of the FL.) - https://www.webnovel.com/book/rebirth-of-an-idle-noblewoman_16248861605324005 (FL got transmigrated as a noble lady on Earth with a system. Even though it's Earth, there are cultivators but the public doesn't know about it, it's only 0,001% of the population. While becoming stronger, the FL open a huge business thanks to her system who give her some sci-fi technologies such as creating VRMMORPG, good software, etc. Around the middle of the story, she also become a mafia leader. She slowly become stronger and more influential. At the end, even the president of the country bow down to greet her because he doesn't dare to offend her. The ML is ONLY good at fighting, but he is average for the rest, while the FL can pretty much do everything.) - https://www.webnovel.com/book/his-genius-wife-is-a-superstar_12333953306291305 (FL is a super-star but she open 2 or 3 companies later in the story. She is a peerless genius: she is the best hacker in the world, can have full mark in every exams, she can speaks more than 10 languages, she is one of the best musician in the world, etc. The ML is only the CEO of a powerful company so the FL is stronger and far smarter than the ML. WARNING: The FL is a bit overprotected by the ML and her brother so it might be annoying sometimes.) - https://www.webnovel.com/book/from-sidekick-to-bigshot_16733253206159405 (The FL is a genius doctor on Earth. She secretly join a medical institution even though she is still a highschool student. After 200-300 chapters, she is the secret leader of the best hospital in the world where every rich people want to go to get cured, which make her very influential and very rich. She is also a large shareholder in a few companies, so it allows her to make some decisions in others companies aswell. She also colaborates with the millitary (she helps them inspecting corpses after a murder) and the military protect her to repay her.) - https://www.webnovel.com/book/my-sweet-physician-wife-calls-the-shots_16032725905711105 (The story take place on Earth. The FL is very secretive. At first, there is only romance and I thought that the FL was quite weak. You got the classic "young lady getting picked up from the contryside by a rich family", but get bullied by some evil stepmother and stepsister. BUT WAIT, she is NOT AT ALL weak. This family is basically an ant in front of her! SPOILER ALERT: (She already have the following identities at chapter 1). She is secretly the CEO of 4 companies that are all in the top 50 companies in the world. She is also the leader of a mafia with some very strong subordinates. She is also part of the royal family in a foreign kingdom (yes, we are still on Earth). She is also extremely strong: she killed more than 100 peoples in a few minutes using poker card as a weapon!! She has a superpower that give her X-ray vision, and she can see very small things like cells. It makes her the best doctor in the world who can cure any injury. The ML is a millitary officer, and he was in trouble during a mission in France, and you know what the FL did? She contacted the general of the army in France who happened to be her subordinate, so she sent more than 1000 soldier to save him. The ML is quite strong physically, about as strong as the FL, but she is richer, more intelligent, and maybe more influential than him (he still come from a top family in China). The ML doesn't know about the FL abbilities, he learn around chapter 500-600 about her identity. Before that, he thought that she was a normal weak girl. - https://www.webnovel.com/book/after-the-rebirth-of-the-unbeatable-queen_18398713306670805 (It's in a chinese cultivation world. Only 60 chapters translated, but you can MTL the rest. It's the classic assassin transmigration to a trash, but WAIT, it's a bit different. Unlike those novel where it takes 1000 chapters for the FL to be only stronger than average, it only take about 30 chapters in this novel to make her stronger than most people. Around chapter 150, she is already powerful enough to make the emperor afraid to offend her (in strength, money and influence). The FL start to open a few business that are quickly becoming successfull. She also create a sect that become one of the most powerful sect in the country. The ML will slowly find out her identities one by one. Btw, the ML is quite respectful toward the FL and he doesn't go on her way.) - https://www.webnovel.com/book/geniu...e-world-with-her-aberration_12613350006147405 (The story take place in a ancient chinese world. FL transmigrate in the body of a child and create her sect and business. She trains her subordinate, and they become very loyal. She quickly become very strong, probably one of the strongest. The author clearly said in an "author note" that she hates FL who rely on ML for everything. The ML only appear for the first time after chapter 100 and was never mentionned before, so you should read this mainly for the "sect/business building", and some badass stuff from the FL!) - https://www.webnovel.com/book/glamorous-journey-of-the-female-protagonist_16740083405054605 (The FL was a magician on Earth and got transmigrated in a cultivation world, and she can still use magic power. With her magic, she can teleport, mind-control, create anythings that she imagine, fly, etc... Even before she start to cultivate, she is already pretty OP but not the strongest. She start her business and gather loyal subordinates. It's a reverse harem, but all the ML are very respectful.) - https://www.webnovel.com/book/epic-of-caterpillar_15787990506065305 (Ok, it's completely different than the others in the list, but it still respect the theme perfectly. The MC got reincarnated as a caterpillar (she soon get a humanoide body, don't worry). She starts to create an empire where she is the suprem queen. All the subordinates are very loyal because she basically mind-controlled them to make them her slave. And the story is basically about her conquering the world and rulling as the absolute queen! It's a yuri (girl love) harem, the MC is a woman but she has around 10 wifes.) - https://www.webnovel.com/book/matriarch-is-pretty-and-cool_18001231006029405 (It take place on Earth, in the 21st century. Out of all the FL in a modern settings, she might be the most OP. The FL is a cultivator and is 5400 years old. She was born when gods still existed, so she is the last surviving god. Well, not an almighty god who can create a world, only a cultivator who reached the divine realm and immortality. She has the appearence of a 18 years old girl because she doesn't age anymore, and she decide to go in highschool. Basically, around 2000 years ago, she ordered her servant to create 8 families. And now, in the 21st century, those 8 families are the 8 richest family in China, but no one except themselves know that they are a family of servant. So, she can basically order them around if she needs something and all their money is rightfully hers (it's not like she need that much money though). They are super respectful: they kneel when they meet her, and they need her permission if the heir of the families want to marry. About her abilities, she is by far the strongest in the world (there are other cultivator, even though the public doesn't know about them, but she is far stronger than them). She is also a genius for pretty much everything (hacking, studies, languages, science....). One day, they were studying a book in class that was written 200 years ago, but the author was actually... her XD. Btw, there are only 60 chapters translated, but you can read the MTL, I have read 1300+ chapters. - https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/1992/the-new-journey-of-an-old-soul (The FL was something powerful in her past life (not going to spoil) and is reincarnated as a baby in a fantasy world. She get stronger quite fast, she becomes a noble (by her own abilities), and then empress (not by marrying someone, she is the one who have the throne). There is no real romance, but the FL like girl, so you can say that it's yuri, but she won't love anyone, she just tease some girl sometimes. - https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/5795/pawo-princess-aurora-the-hero-villainess-of-another (The FL was transported in the game world as her game avatar with all her abilities, so she is OP from the beginning. In the game, she was the queen of a country so she is still the ruler now that it became real. She has a big castle for herself and a lot of loyal subordinates. It's quite similar to Overlord but with some differences. Also, the FL is quite evil, she is doing some dark research and she managed to create a slave collar. She also use some prisonner to make some experimentation on a human body. Btw, there is no romance at all.) - https://www.quotev.com/story/115877...Do-Her-Best-To-Prevent-The-Worlds-Destruction (It's quite similar to Overlord but with a female MC. One day, the MC wake up in the body of her game avatar and she was transported to another world, not the game world, but another random fantasy world. With her, all the subordinate from her guild came along, and the floating island (the guild's base) where there is her palace and her city aswell. The problem is that she and her subordinate are way too powerful compared to the citizen of this world, and it looks like that her fanatical subordinate wants to conquer the world and give it to her. So the MC will enjoy this world as a powerful being, while being careful to calm her subordinate to prevent the world destruction. The way they engaged the other kingdoms and how they now fear her is quite well made and funny.) - https://www.wattpad.com/story/232804923-the-villainess-wants-to-live-happily-ever-after (It's in a Otome Game setting in a fantasy world, but WAIT! It's not your cliche romance. Here, we have a very strong FL who is quite evil, and will not hesitate to use evil tricks to get what she wants. She creates several companies, and she also become the leader of an assassin organization. She is extremely intelligent and she is OP physically. She is stronger and more intelligent than the ML, even though the ML is a very capable and clever crown prince. For example, she created a company who sell enchanted jewerly that allow someone to talk to someone else from afar (like a phone), but she didn't do it just to get some money or for charity, but she did it because she can spy every conversation in the world .) - https://www.scribblehub.com/series/117113/isekaid-shoggoth/ (It's inside a Otome Game and the FL is reincarnated as a duke's daughter, but the she is very OP. Actually, the FL has a human appearence, but she is not human, her real appearence is some kind of eldritch abomination with tentacles (a shoggoth). She is very intelligent and strong, she is strong physically and can use all magics. She create several companies that become quickly very influential. So, she keeps getting richer and more influential. And also, even though there are capture targets, the FL love girls, so it's a yuri story, but the romance is not the main part of the story.) - https://www.scribblehub.com/series/62666/living-as-i-please-as-a-loli-demon-king/ (The MC was summoned as a hero, but then she died and was transmigrated into the same world, but as a loli, one of the 10 demon kings (not sure about the number). She first need to manage her territory and make it more powerful, then she can start to go to war against other demon kings or humans. Also, there is no real romance, but the MC likes girl (she was a boy in her past life after all), so it's yuri and there are some yuri s*xual scene aswell (only 2-3 chapters out of 100+).) - https://www.wattpad.com/story/201315893-the-transmigration-of-an-overpowered-girl (The FL is reincarnated in a cultivation world, and she quickly become stronger. She create her own sect and her own business that are becoming more and more influential. It doesn't take long for all the nobles and even the emperor to fear her sect.) - https://www.wattpad.com/story/101376174-a-genius-mafia-heiress-reincarnated-in-another (The FL was a mafia heiress so she was trained a lot, and she was a genius, but she was playing a RPG game in her free time. She got transmigrated in another world as a princess, but she kept all her power, and also brought the servants and divine beast that she had in the RPG that she played.) - https://www.wattpad.com/story/139152122-rebirth-of-the-villainess-little-miss-perfect She was a mafia boss in her past life, she got transmigrated in a Otome Novel (a otome in modern times) as a 7-8 years old child. She decided to keep training, rebuild a mafia and create a new business. It doesn't take long for her to be one of the most influential people in the country. The story slow down when she is 15, and it's also the moment where the "otome stuff" are supposed to begin. Of course, everyone around her doesn't know about her identities. _______________________________________________________ And that's it! I didn't send everything, I only sent the story that has a decent amount of chapters and that respect perfectly the themes. If you want more similar story you can still ask. But the goal of this post is actually to ask YOU, if you know any story similar to those I posted? Thank you for your help!
