When a humanoid person has a peacock tail or 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.

Compare WingedHumanoid, GiantWaistRibbon.

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