* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Charlotte Cuuhlhourne went [[BerserkButton berserk]] when Yumichika did this to him.

* It happens in ''Manga/OnePiece'' in the fight between Zoro and Hatchan. At one point during his fight with Hatchan, Zoro lops off one of the spikes of his hairdo.

* Happens twice to Kirika in ''Anime/{{Noir}}'', once in the form of a bullet that grazes her head, apparently leaving her uninjured and undoing part of her LaserGuidedAmnesia, and again with a sword-wielding nun in the final episode. Mirielle also had one of these when she was a child; that's the apparent reason for her "half-bang" hairstyle.
