%% * Mion of ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'', but ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' wears her hair in a long ponytail. Mion is boisterous, perverted, and usually exhibits little in terms of femininity. She calls herself an "old man" regularly and in one arc Keiichi decides against giving her a doll (and instead gives it to their more feminine, mutual friend Rena) because he deems her too boyish for one. In contrast, her more girly identical twin sister Shion wears her hair loose. [[spoiler:Mion is actually a subversion. She's [[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak much more feminine]] than she is girly at heart]].pretends to be. Keiichi giving Rena the doll upset Mion so much she ended up sobbing to her sister, which unwittingly caused Shion to become a SerialKiller.]]

%% * Belle from ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' is one of the most intellectual of the Renaissance Princesses, and perhaps the Disney Princesses as a whole (there's a reason why the Big Three Renaissance Princesses in particular are practically tomboys compared to the Classic Princesses), and she's also one of only two (the other being RebelliousPrincess Jasmine from ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'') to wear her hair in a ponytail on a regular basis; even when SheCleansUpNicely, the ponytail does likewise.

%%** Earlier generations had Misty (Kasumi in the Japanese version), referred to as "the tomboyish mermaid" on her Gym's signpost (and perhaps the most physically brutal in combat out of Kanto's female Gym Leaders), whose trademark hairstyle, as seen in Gens I and III and every adaptation in which she's appeared, is a short ponytail tied to the side.

* In ''Film/MeanGirls'' Ponytails are usually used in the film to signify a character being less concerned with their appearance. Cady wore her hair like this before she joined the Plastics but starts wearing her hair down as she falls in with the Plastics, and then goes back to the occasional ponytail after her HeelRealization. The Plastics actually tell her that they have a rule about only wearing hair in a ponytail once a week. Janis, the goth/alternative outcast, always wears her hair back. All the Plastics wear their hair down throughout the film, but Regina starts sporting a ponytail as she gains weight and is forced to wear less glamorous clothing. She is also wearing a ponytail at the end of the film, where she is a lacrosse athlete and has a more down-to-earth wardrobe.

* Subverted in the ''PrettyCure franchise''. Every team has atleast 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.

%% * [[ActionGirl Lara Croft]] from ''Franchise/TombRaider''.''Franchise/TombRaider'' may be the TropeCodifier for video games, ''especially'' 3D action/platformers. It's not only practical in-universe for the highly-physical nature of what she does in the games, but flowing hair is ''still'' incredibly difficult to render in 3D, while a ponytail can be done with much simpler physics modeling.
