The female version of hero.

As it's a gender specific word, it's considered un-PC by many.

Hero is the gender neutral term, as the word 'hero' had nothing to do with the word "he". One comes from Greek, one from Old English.

In Greek legend there's actually a woman called Hero as in the tale of Hero & Leander.
The heroine triumphed against the evil dude.

Like hero, but specific to women. A useless word considering that hero is typically used for either sex.

Not to be confused with heroin, as it's common for stupid people to tack an "e" on the end when using the internet.
1) Dude im soooo high on heroine rite now!!!!1
2) You're high on a girl or woman of outstanding courage, nobility, etc., or of heroic achievements? You're an idiot.
