* Subverted in the ''Franchise/PrettyCure''. Every team has at least one character with a ponytail who is mostly a [[TrueBlueFemininity white or blue Cures]]. And those said Cures are actually the most feminine members, though that doesn't stop being an (competent) ActionGirl. The only blue Cures who don't have a ponytail in their Cure forms are [[Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure Cure Marine (Erika)]] and [[Anime/SmilePrettyCure Cure Beauty (Reika)]], but they wear sometimes ponytails in their civilian identities. Notably, Reika wears a ponytail whenever she practices kyudo. The pink [[Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure Cure Blossom]] and the yellow [[Anime/SmilePrettyCure Cure Peace]] have also a ponytail, but both are [[ShrinkingViolet Shrinking Violets]], while the pink [[Anime/DokiDokiPrecure Cure Heart]] is at least described as prince in her civilian identity, ''twice'', both by a female ''and'' a male. The only ones who play this tropes straight are [[Anime/DokiDokiPrecure Cure Sword]] and especially [[Anime/SmilePrettyCure Cure March]] who has also one in her civilian identity.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': ActionGirl Yoruichi. She used to have short hair, but a hundred years spent mostly as a cat allowed her hair to grow out. Now she spends most of the time with it tied back in a ponytail while she [[{{Badass}} kicks butt]] with the best of the men. Since her extremely high aristocratic rank wasn't quite high enough to be a RebelliousPrincess, she also doubles as a SpiritedYoungLady, too.

* Played with by Eva Kant from ''ComicBook/{{Diabolik}}'' in her youth: she wore her hair this way and was a tomboy as a teen, but kept the style when she became a very feminine young woman (while also being a DarkActionGirl), only ditching it for a PrimAndProperBun on her wedding night (first to screw with her husband's mind, and then because it reminded her of her victory over the man who had ruined her life).
