* Parodied in ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'', Osaka has odd fantasies about the way Chiyo's pigtails work, e.g. when she lifts one, the other goes up too, they enable flight, they ''talk'', and they pop off and can be replaced with new ones.
** Also played straight on occasion.

* On ''Manga/OnePiece'', Mr. 3 of Baroque Works often forms his number-three-shaped top-knot into question marks and exclamation points. For some reason, when he is about to use his Doru Doru powers, the tip sets itself on fire without the flame spreading or him feeling it.

** And then there is [[{{Cyborg}} Franky]] whose hair works as a fuel gauge and also indicates what kind of fuel he's currently on.
*** Franky can now control his hair by pressing down his nose. Considering how much Oda loves afros and mohawks, it's no surprise that this is currently all it's been used for.

* ''Manga/WanderingSon'', the manga version, is made of this trope. All the characters hair is expressive, and changes depending on their reaction or the general scene. Sometimes its just messy because it is, and other times they're shocked or surprised and it stands up.

* This is actually TruthInTelevision, as humans still retain tiny muscles in the hair follicles that are used to puff the hair in most warmblooded animals, and this is the same reaction that give us goosebumps. Said muscles are much too weak to control long and heavy hair, but if a person has, say, a crewcut, it can visibly swell when that person is angry, afraid or simply cold.
** This is also why cats ''ripple'' and dogs raise their hackles when they're alarmed.
** Part of this is a vestigial defense mechanism from when humans were much hairier animals. By making all the hair follicles on our body stand on end when we're afraid, we look larger to predators and have a chance of scaring them off.
* Some birds (like cockatoos and bluejays) have expressive ''feathers'' on their heads (crests).
** Most birds, in fact, will fluff up for various reasons (happy, frightened, cold, etc.), sometimes resulting in what looks like little more than a feathery fluffball with legs.
** Consequently, paleontologists think that some dinosaurs may have done this, too.

* Tenma from ''Manga/SchoolRumble'' has stubby not-quite-antennae sprouting from her temples which waggle when she's happy or angry. This is lampshaded in the comic once: she's feeling decidedly mixed, so one not-quite-antenna is sticking straight out, the other straight ''up''.

* Snake in ''Franchise/MetalGear [[AwesomeSeries Awesome]]'' does this a lot with his eyebrows. They become thicker, bushier and/or longer the more pissed off he gets. At one point, they grow to the point they resemble tree branches, complete with oranges sprouting out of them.
