Laurie Strode (Halloween franchise)

Number of movies survived: Six
Number of movies not survived: One
Pros:

A master of the multiverse: Within the Halloween franchise, she has commanded three different timelines.

She takes pride in her work. As a babysitter, she almost literally stuck her neck out for those kids. And since it was the 70s, she couldn’t have been making more than three bucks an hour.

Will cut a dude’s head off if she has to.

Has a real “I’ve spent my whole life waiting for this reunion with my stalker” vibe.

Grace Le Domas (Ready or Not)

Number of movies survived: One
Number of movies not survived: None
Pros:

Considering she grew up in the foster care system and has lived ~largely~without family, she’s capable of standing on her own two feet.

She can and will kill her own fiancé and laugh at his family’s deaths.

Even the devil respects her.

Can deliver a one-liner like no other.

She’s not afraid of (blood) rain on her wedding day.
