When a '''humanoid person''' has a peacock tail, is wearing a bunch of feathers arranged as though it was a peacock tail (actually not a tail, but a separate group of feathers known as a "train"), or just has peacock feathers in some way (even around the shoulders or as a headpiece).

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.

Compare WingedHumanoid, GiantWaistRibbon.

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

* ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'' has... well, Peacock, a cyborg girl whose mechanical additions and cartoony powers take on a peacock motif. Quite a bit.
** Her cybernetic arms each have three eyes on them that resemble the tail feathers of the bird, and one of her attacks has her hat turn into a peacock head while an array of eyes line up behind her, fanning out and looking even more like a peacock's tail. She also has a sidekick named Avery, a tiny peacock who stays in her hat.
** There's also a mythology reference with Peacock: Her cyborg parts are called the Argus System, in reference to the hundred-eyed giant Argus of Greek myth whose eyes were placed onto the tail of the peacock as a memento after his death. Her super attack with the peacock tail shaped eyes matches this: She shouts either "Argus Agony" or "Eyes of Argus" when performing it.

She recounts in ''Assassin'' that she didn't win the Grammy, but she ''was'' named Worst Dressed. This was met with cheers from the audience, since it came after a rant on how everyone at awards ceremonies dresses the same and that those named Worst Dressed are actually the best, since they're creating their own look.
