When a '''humanoid person''' has a peacock tail, is wearing a bunch of feathers arranged as though it was a peacock tail (which is actually a separate group of feathers known as a "train").

This is common on girls in fiction, [[AnimalGenderBender yet the peacock train is a feature of male peafowl]] in RealLife (females -- pea''hens'' -- lack the train and, at least in the case of the Indian (Blue) peahen, are rather drab in color (the Green peahens are much more colourful, only slightly less so than the Green peacock)); but such a flamboyant thing on a human guy would be, well, [[AmbiguouslyGay flamboyant]]. So it's often human girls that have this, although a guy having one isn't entirely unheard of.

A SubTrope of either LittleBitBeastly or FluffyFashionFeathers, depending on whether this character actually has a tail or is just wearing one.

Not to be confused with women who work for Creator/{{NBC}}, or with AgentPeacock.
