10 TV Shows That Turned Wimps Into Badasses

9. Yennefer - The Witcher

The Walking Dead

The word “wimp” may be a little strong considering Yennifer starts out The Witcher in a place of forced subservience, but there’s no questioning the journey and powerful character arc of Yennefer of Vengerberg across Season 1.

Early on, we’re introduced to a character who has been shunned and rejected on a day-to-day basis, largely due to the average person being disgusted by her appearance, only for Yen to then be routinely berated and belittled during her attempts to learn magic.

However, as the wannabe-sorceress slowly begins to realise the power she possesses and yearns for not just strength, but stature, Yennefer demands an enchanter to make her beautiful in order to give her more tools to gain said power - regardless of the fact it would cost her the ability to bear a child.

Fast forward to the sight of the newly altered and entirely empowered Yennefer strutting into the Aretuzan ball and taking the King of Vengerberg for a boogie on the dancefloor, and the transformation from bullied outcast to formidable woman on a mission was complete.
