* In ''ASongOfIceAndFire'', the Dothraki men wear their hair in long braids, usually decorated with bells. The braid is cut when the warrior loses a battle. Notably, Khal Drogo's braid has ''never'' been cut. [[spoiler:Even when he dies from an infected wound, he still WON the fight where he received it.]]
* This trope is played with in the {{Deryni}} works:

* There's a variation in ''ElfQuest'' where Clearbrook's long hair is braided by her lifemate One-Eye. After rescuing her from the Gliders' captivity he is horrified to find that they have bound her hair up, and painstakingly re-braids it. When One-Eye dies she cuts off her braid and lays it upon his body. Ironically, it's only during this period, when she is driven by revenge, that she really acts like a warrior. Later on she bonds with Treestump, and once her hair has grown back he braids it again.
