The Terminator: Sarah Connor vs. T-800

1984 was not a good year to be named Sarah Connor in Los Angeles. At least not in James Cameron's epic time-travel/artificial intelligence/pending nuclear holocaust blockbuster. The film was Cameron's directorial debut (well, unless you count Piranha Part Two: The Spawning… and, really, you should) and though it features a number of face-offs between Arnold Schwarzenegger's shotgun-wielding robot-from-hell and Michael Biehn's futuristic resistance fighter, none of those is our battle of choice. The ultimate showdown is between the Terminator and Sarah herself. Sarah ultimately lives to kick ass another day, but not without her scars (spoiler alert for later on in this list).
