* ''Franchise/DragonBall'': The Saiyans have Shonen Hair as a genetic trait to the point that a pure-blooded Saiyan's hair literally never changes from the day they're born. All too fitting for a barbaric race of space-faring cavemen.
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' - while Kamina's hair is this trope played straight, Simon is an interesting example - his hairstyle becomes more and more like this each time he [[TookALevelInBadass Takes a Level in Badass]].
* Manga/{{Naruto}}, and a few of his friends, like Kiba.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''.

to:

* ''Franchise/DragonBall'': The Saiyans have Shonen Hair as a genetic trait to Iki from ''Manga/AirGear''.
* ''Manga/BladeOfTheImmortal'': Despite being fairly realistic and featuring normal haircuts for almost all of
the point main and supporting characters, AntiVillain Magatsu Taito looks like he's carrying a porcupine on his head. We're talking foot-long spikes. It doesn't go unnoticed. At one point, somebody mentions InUniverse that a pure-blooded Saiyan's hair literally never changes from the day they're born. All too fitting for a barbaric race of space-faring cavemen.

* Jotaro Kujo from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' was revealed to have this when he lost his cap.

to:

* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'': Touma Kamijou. In a bit of a subversion, Touma actually deliberately styles it that way with hair gel.
* ''Manga/ChronoCrusade'': Joshua Christopher, although it's much more toned down than some of the other examples on this page. (He pretty much fits the personality for this trope to a T.) [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Chrono]] might count, too, although he's got a long braid at the base of his neck in addition to the spiky hair on his head.
* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'': Spike Spiegel has hair that sticks out all over the place, but it's more curly than spiky. (Faye at one point describes it as "fluffy".)
* ''Manga/DNAngel'': Almost ''all'' of the male cast. Particularly notable because this is a ''{{shojo}}'' manga, not shounen (although it certainly mixes in tropes from that genre).
* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'': At least one kid from each series, usually the protagonist, who'll be hot-headed and immature, and also wear useless goggles.
* ''Franchise/DragonBall'': The Saiyans have Shonen Hair as a genetic trait to the point that a pure-blooded Saiyan's hair literally never changes from the day they're born. All too fitting for a barbaric race of space-faring cavemen.
* ''Anime/DuelMasters'': Shobu Kirifuda.
* ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'': Several characters have hair like this, including Sena, Monta and Hiruma. The series lampshades the trope: Sena's hair is a cross between Goku's and Astro Boy's. Sena looks exactly like Astro Boy with his hair gelled down and his dad has the same hairdo. Hiruma actually has normal hair but styles his hair this way to add to his rebellious image. As for Monta, he's simply copying the hairstyle of his hero, who has a less cartoony version of the haircut.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'': [[TheHero Natsu]], [[TheLancer Gray]], and [[TheRival Gajeel]] all have this hairstyle.
** Whenever Natsu is in the middle of a hard battle, his bangs go down because of the damage he takes. During the Tenro Island arc, he even uses his Fire Dragon Slayer Magic to heat up his hands to style his hair to its usual style.
* ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'': Tamahome and Tasuki, as opposed to just about everyone else. Bonus points because Tamahome keeps his hair in a ponytail anyway. Of course, that was before the [[MoralEventHorizon you]][[ImportantHaircut -know-]][[HeroicBSOD what]] involving Suboshi in the middle of the series.
* ''Anime/FutureGPXCyberFormula'': Hayato Kazami, Naoki Shinjyo and Johji Ohtomo have these. Hayato's is more noticeable, and it gets bigger in the last 2 [=OVAs=].
* ''Manga/GetBackers'': A lot of characters, most notably the two protagonists, and ''especially'' Ban (though being drenched leads to his hair becoming completely tamed... for a while).
* Manga/{{Hamlet}} has this.
* ''Franchise/KagerouProject'': Shintaro, Hibiya, Seto and (to a lesser extent) Haruka all have this. In Shintaro and Haruka's cases, it's [[LampshadedTrope Lampshaded]] [[spoiler:by the same person, no less]].
* ''Anime/KillLaKill'': Sanageyama's hair seems to get more spiky with every new iteration of his uniform. By the time he gets to wearing Blade Regalia: Secret Unsealed, he's practically a Saiyan.

''Franchise/PrettyCure''
** ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure'': Side character Waon Nishijima has blue shonen hair. Fittingly, she's
a ''staple'' tomboy who's into sports.
** ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure'': Reika/Cure Beauty gains spiky hair in [[SuperMode Princess Form]], making her look like a ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' character. The irony is that she's the YamatoNadeshiko
of the ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' universe:five Cures, while the '''two''' tomboys get more traditionally feminine hair in their own Princess Forms.
* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'': Tsukune has shonen hair, but thanks to ArtEvolution, his hair looks more normal and straighter in later chapters of ''Season II''.
* ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'': In the [[WordOfGod author's notes]], Creator/NobuhiroWatsuki explicitly mentions that [[KidSamurai Yahiko's]] character design is that of the archetypical wild-haired Shonen Protagonist, and [[TheLancer Sano's]] hair is so crazy he gets called "Rooster-head" InUniverse. (Interestingly enough, as the series progresses, Kenshin's hair grows progressively ''less'' wild. ArtShift that doubles as a sign of CharacterDevelopment!)
* Darren has this in the manga adaptation of ''Literature/TheSagaOfDarrenShan'', at least when he's not bald.
* ''AudioPlay/SaintBeast'': Unlike most of his counterparts who have [[YouGottaHaveblueHair unnatural hair colours]], Goh just gets a very spiky haircut.
* ''Manga/SaintSeiya'': Most protagonists and villains. Seiya's helmet seems to have trouble keeping his hair's spikes from jutting out. The villains tend to combine shonen hair with RapunzelHair for maximum fabulousness.
* ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'': Mugen has wild hair that sticks out all around his head. He has a similarly wild personality.
* ''Manga/SoulEater'': Soul and Black☆Star.
* ''Anime/{{Superbook}}'': Chris.
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' - while Kamina's hair is this trope played straight, Simon is an interesting example - his hairstyle becomes more and more like this each time he [[TookALevelInBadass Takes a Level in Badass]].
