[[caption-width-right:330:So this GirlyBruiser can look extra girly, while doing extra bruising.]]

A pair of huge pigtails on a girl, that are much larger than possible in RealLife, at least not without loads of hair gel. '''The minimum hair size of both tails combined must be at least the size of the girl's head.'''

There can be many reasons for this, although the most common are either to make the pigtails clear even in long shots, or because of RuleOfCute.

Quite often these pigtails have the hair in a spiral, which overlaps with RegalRinglets. However, girls with Mega Twintails are not necessarily of high station. It is more of a compromise halfway between the "girlishness" of RegalRinglets and "{{tomboy}}ishness" of GirlishPigtails, both in looks and in personality.

Not to be confused with just having long hair in pigtails (like Franchise/SailorMoon, [[{{Vocaloid}} Hatsune Miku]], [[MartianSuccessorNadesico Ruri]], or [[SuitePrettyCure Hibiki]]).

A SubTrope of AnimeHair, and BiggerIsBetter.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In VividRedOperation, Vivid Yellow has MegaTwintails ''larger than her entire body''. They actually look like a cape from some angles.
* Miki, and her [[RobotGirl android double]] in ''Anime/SailorVictory'' have large swirling tails, the latter even able to turn them into high powered fans.
* Leenalee Lee of ''DGrayMan'' when she is caught by [[spoiler: the recently arrived Road]] in the Rewinding Town arc. It's a part of a GoGoEnslavement moment, as her captor also puts an ElegantGothicLolita gown on her just for the heck of it, and Lenalee's hair is normally in simple GirlishPigtails.
* Chibi-Usa of ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' has similar hair to her mother, but instead of the pigtails being thin and ankle-length (and wouldn't qualify for this trope), they are poofy and shoulder length. In her [[PlotRelevantAgeUp adult form]] as [[FaceHeelTurn Black Lady]], they're ''still'' big and poofy, but also [[RapunzelHair extend all the way to her feet]].
* In ''LadiesVersusButlers'', Sernia [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Flameheart_1174.jpg has these]].
** [[ExpressiveHair They even spin when she gets angry.]]
* ''Kodomo No Jikan'' has some characters with it, like [[FilleFatale Rin]]. It's too thick to just be long pigtails. It's even lampshaded in some {{Omake}}s.
* Sayaka Suzuki "No.6" in ''PaniPoniDash''. Sometimes she is referred as "big ribbon" or "over-sized" due to her hairstyle - giant pigtails tied with two large white ribbons.
* Mami in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' straddles the line of TheOjou because of her family's wealth and her own class, and her brutal GunKata.

** Also, as [[http://i16.mangareader.net/kuroshitsuji/58/kuroshitsuji-2425435.jpg her hair is normally much straighter]], she has to get them done with curlers.
* A couple of the ArtificialHuman girls in ''{{xxxHoLic}}'' have pigtails that are very poofy and nearly go down to their feet.

* The female Ace Trainers in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite''.
** As does Gothitelle (they resemble four large black discs stuck to either side of its head).
