* Justified in ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'', since hairstyle is used to advertise one's social status, with short hair being reserved for slaves and servants. This means that when [[BadassNormal Vaelia]] is officially promoted to be Ariel's guard she gets hair extensions put in so she won't be mistaken for a slave, and when [[TheMole Verthandi]] is called out on her treachery her kin cut off her long hair to [[TraumaticHaircut shame her]]. Also, Ariel's innate [[VoluntaryShapeshifting limited shapeshifting]] means she has a practical use for her long hair -- trying to grab it in combat will likely result is it coiling around your arm like a snake and wrenching you to the ground.

* Lilly Singh, aka ''WebVideo/IISuperwomanII'', has hair that she could sit on. She's had people pull on it on-camera just to prove it's real.

* In SurvivalOfTheFittest v4, we get Bridget Connolly, who is well-known for having knee-length red hair, though usually tied back. This was until she cut it while on the island, after hearing about [[spoiler:the death of her best friend, Raina Morales.]]

** Iris goes UpToEleven by sporting what can be adequately described as a violet Wailord fin on her head. It's big enough to fit her ''Axew'' inside! [[spolier:And it only becomes longer when she's a champion]]

** Roxanne arguably could fall into this category with her two waist length twin tails.

to:

** Gen III's Frontier Brain Lucy is a similar case, but with thigh length black hair and large side bangs with crimson highlights.

** As is her fellow Kalos Gym leader Valerie, with her own knee length black tresses.



** Blue/Green, depending on manga translation seems to possess varying hair lengths after the beginning of the FireRed/LeafGreen chapter, depending on the panel. Prior to FireRed and LeafGreen it sits comfortably at shoulder length, but then lengthens considerably to fit her new design, sometimes appearing in some panels, to fall down past the bottom of her skirt, especially ''[[http://www.mangapanda.com/pokemon-adventures/282/8 here,]]'' to stunning effect.



** Winona is given the chance in the manga to let her long lilac ponytail down on several occassions, to show that is falls below her waist when loose. [[spoiler:Small wonder Wallace is hooked on her]]
** Sabrina's manga incarnation outmatches her anime counterpart's waist length locks with black, almost serpentine hair, which reaches her ankles and only grows more lustrous with the improvement in art style.



** Lyndis from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Rekka No Ken]]'' has hair that reaches her waist even when held up in a high ponytail.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' brought Lusamine onto the scene, who's incredible all emcompassing, hip length blonde hair/hoodie, was the talk of the town when she was first revealed, and Lille comes close [[spoiler:to matching her mother's length]] with her own waist length blonde hair.
** Rosa/Mei; the female avatar character from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' can be assumed to have somewhere around knee length brown hair, given two strands fall past her waist whilst the rest is up in two large side buns.
** And with the inclusion of trainer customisation in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', some of the girl's hairstyles, as well as Serena's default hairstyle, come close to hip length if not in ponytails.
** The two Gen IV double battle partners: Cheryl and Mira each have hip length green and pink ponytails/twintails respectively, although Cheryl's is likely longer than that, given it is plaitted.
** Lorelei has a wast length ponytail to complement her curves, all of which are further emphasized in Pokemon Generations



** The two pale in comparison to Caitlin in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite''. Take [[http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/0/04/Black_White_Caitlin.png one]] look at her official art. That's not even ''all'' of it. Her art in Gen IV was actually a bit more realistic.
** A Pokemon example of this trope is Zoroark.

** The two Aqua Admin Shelly's designs for ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' and ''VideoGame/PokemonOmegaRubyAndAlphaSapphire'' both feature her with impossibly volumous leg length hairstyles, the former having red afro-like hair, and the latter having wild, black, Panty and Stocking-esque hair, streaked with blue, that's likely the envy of all of the female Team Aqua grunts.

** Caitlin's fellow frontier brain in Gen IV, Dhalia also has it, styled in loose braids that reach her legs.

Pokemon example examples of this trope is Zoroark.are Zoroark and Lilligant, and Tsareena, [[spolier:and the Ultra Beast Pheromosa]] all of which imitate ankle length hair.
** As an NPC example, the female swimmers in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' all have thigh length bleach blonde hair, which they don't seem at all bothered about cleaning the sea water out of once they leave the ocean.
** Whilst the female researchers in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' all choose calf length black hair to rival the length of their lab coats, seemingly taking design choices from Fennel, who has an identical style.

** Even Star's mom has the same kind of hair she does. You wouldn't have been able to tell because she always holds her hair up.

* Sierra from ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaWorldTour'' has hair reaching her butt (and she's the tallest girl), and given how it's braided it should be even longer. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:as of her injury near the end of the season, she's bald now.]]
