* In Garth Williams' classic illustrations for ''Literature/CharlottesWeb'', pig-loving farm girl Fern wears her hair in various ways from scene to scene, but her most common hairstyle (and allegedly E.B. White's favorite for her) is a ponytail. When she starts to "grow up" and care more about [[PuppyLove Henry Fussy]] than farm animals, she switches to braided GirlishPigtails.

%% * Sango in ''Manga/InuYasha'' has her long hair bound in a ponytail when she's in her battle-garb. Otherwise she has it tied at the end with a ribbon.
%% * Signum of ''Franchise/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', a [[TheStoic stoic]] MagicKnight and generally one of the least feminine women on the show.
%% * Presea from ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth''. Also, tomboys Tarta and Hikaru have their hair in a braid. Contrast to the girlier girls Emeraude, Alcyone, Tatra, and Umi, who wear their hair down. Caldina, Fuu, and Aska are harder to classify, since they have both tomboy and girly girl traits, but all wear different hairstyles.

* 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]], [[Anime/SmilePrettyCure Cure March]] and [[Anime/KiraKiraPrecureALaMode Cure Gelato]], the latter two also having one in their civilian identities.
