* Natsuki of ''Anime/MaiHiME'' is angered to find that sword-wielding Mikoto has sheared off part of her hair with her giant claymore during their fight in the first episode. In this case we don't see the actual cut that takes it off, just the aftermath when Natsuki discovers it.
** In a later episode, she does this to Nagi when she attempts to shoot him, but the bullet misses leaves a nasty mark on his hair.
* Shizuru Viola in ''Anime/MaiOtome'' has a sniper's bullet shot through her hair that takes out a spy she's captured (see the main page's image), though the damage is not noticeable by the next time we see her.

* Played perfectly straight in ''Anime/DevilMayCryTheAnimatedSeries'' when Trish and Lady fight in the church. Trish fires on a temporarily helpless Lady, who feels no wound and pats herself down, to find strands of hair on her shoulder. "You BITCH you shot my hair!" and the fight turns to fisticuffs.

* In ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'', Lina gets a magic suppressing tiara latched onto her head to prevent her from using magic or suffer a nasty shock. After she and Gourry escaped from their cell, Gourry finds their weapons, and without hesitation, tosses Lina up and ''slices'' at her face with his sword as she fell. It took of a small strand of hair, but ultimately sliced off the tiara from her head. Due to the pain, she repays him by bashing him over the head [[BreakingTheFourthWall WITH HER OWN SWEATDROP]].

* During one of Teresa's fights in ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' a few strands of her hair are seen blowing after her when Ilena attempts to attack her. However, this isn't so much hint that she's losing her composure (quite the opposite) but to show that she's [[BadAss just that good]] and they can't even touch her.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Charlotte Cuuhlhourne went [[BerserkButton berserk]] when Yumichika did this to him. It was implied that Yumichika did it [[GenreSavvy deliberately]] to [[TheDandy irritate]] Charlotte into releasing his power [[spoiler: because ''that'' would allow '''him''' to [[LetsGetDangerous fight at full strength as well]].]]
