Emphasis on action
When Katsa is introduced to the audience for the first time, she is fighting a bunch of burly guards. When Grace appears for the first time on television, she is merely eight years old and she has already killed a person who tried to molest her. Other major science fiction and fantasy heroines have been introduced in a similar way. They are very bad-ass, violent characters who emphasize action over idle talk. This is an important consideration to take in.

A kick ass science fiction and fantasy heroine doesn't need to be shackled by the chains of morality. Each society has created its own moral rules. A Saudi kick ass fantasy heroine may never take off her veil while an African one may be too naked for the Western audience. Therefore to impose one's society's moral rules on a fictional female character doesn't make her strong. In other words a kick ass heroine is cold and professional.

Go for weaker ones first
There are two kinds of bad people in any story: there are some strong bad ones who are really bad, and there are some weak bad ones who are less bad. A kick ass science fiction and fantasy heroine goes for the weaker ones first. The powerful ones, or the really bad ones, are dealt with later. This is an age-old way to establish a heroine's character, and give her time before she finally meets her match.

Don't be hindered by gender biases
It's regrettable that despite such progress in the Far East and in much of Western Europe and North America, people think it's not right for women to learn martial arts and become soldiers. Therefore your fictional kick ass science fiction and fantasy heroine will have to overcome many social barriers put up in her way. You will have to design your heroine accordingly. If she lives in a medieval world she will have to be against everything the society stands for. If she is a contemporary she will be less antagonistic towards society. In case of a futuristic society, it's up to your imagination.
