->''"Let it fly in the breeze and get caught in the trees\\
Give a home to the fleas, in my hair\\
A home for fleas, a hive for the buzzing bees\\
A nest for birds, there ain't no words\\
For the beauty, splendor, the wonder of my hair\\
Flow it! (Hair!) Show it! (Hair!)\\
Long as God can grow, my hair!"''
-->-- '''The title song''' from ''Theatre/{{Hair}}''

In RealLife, hair is heavy, especially when wet, and as anyone who has had long hair can attest, it takes forever to comb out, requires much more shampoo than usual, tangles at the slightest provocation, becomes unpredictably wavy to frizzy in humidity, attacks everything in a strong wind (for that matter, long hair loose in a strong wind can actually ''hurt''), and is often getting caught in things and being in the way. It also has a way of winding up in your food and your mouth, eyes, and nose, and if it hangs below your mid-back, you have to be careful sitting in seats to avoid it being pinned behind or under you. Sleeping with very long hair (or sleeping with – [[DoubleEntendre in both senses of the word]] – someone with very long hair) has its drawbacks, too.

Long hair is particularly inconvenient for people who regularly find themselves in any kind of combat or "roughing it" situations. That fey, long-haired asskicker – what happens when somebody gets a good hold on her hair. Trust me, hair-grabs are painful, frightening, and incapacitating — even if the person ''doesn't'' rip a bit of your scalp out.

None of these seem to bother fictional characters. Instead, people ([[LongHairIsFeminine mostly women]]) will have hair down past their hips to [[DramaticWind dramatically blow around them]] and/or otherwise [[LongHairIsFeminine accentuate their femininity]]. RealLife long-hairs quickly learn the practicality of hair restraints (braiding, hair ties, snoods, hijabs, &c.); fictional characters let their butt-length hair fly free.

If that much grows very fast, it's RapidHairGrowth. If their hair is used to [[SceneryCensor cover up nudity]] and shut up the censors, it's GodivaHair. DistaffCounterpart of WizardBeard. See also LongHairedPrettyBoy, ImprobableHairstyle, CompressedHair for one way to conceal the hair of such length, and HairyHammerspace for when items are concealed in it.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Homura and Kyoko in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', lampshaded in Homura's case. It seems that in the show, hair length is inversely proportional to how happy and girly you are as a character (at least initially).
** [[spoiler: Madoka's goddess form]] has hair so long that it's a production mandate to never show its ends onscreen.
* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', we have Grimmjow, who, in his released form [[spoiler:not only turns into a cat, but has long blue hair that hangs down past his waist]]. A bit later, we also get [[spoiler:Ichigo, who sports a mullet style with hair that hangs past HIS waist while he's a hollow, It's gets even longer when he uses Final Getsuga Tensho, and Aizen's mullet with hair nearly touching the backs of his knees after his body has finshed absorbing the Hogyuku]]. Rapunzel indeed.
* By ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', Fate's hair is down past her hips and is tied off with a spiffy black bow, presumably to keep it from getting caught in things.
* Gourry, Sylphiel, Naga, and Millina of ''{{Slayers}}'', as well as Filia from the anime (in her human form.). Sylphiel's is of the HimeCut variety, while Millina keeps hers in a ponytail. Gourry is an odd case because he's the [[TheBigGuy hard-hitting swordsman]] who can't cast magic, so it would seem impractical to have all of that blonde hair flowing out while sword fighting...
* Kazuki in ''Manga/GetBackers'' varies. Sometimes it looks floor-length, especially in the anime, but the manga artist usually draws it as roughly hip-length, unless it needs to flutter dramatically. The anime version also draws it to be very thick, with a ponytail about the same circumference as his neck. Sakura, Hevn, Kaoru Haruki, and, in some shots, Madoka all have waist-length hair.
* Creator/{{Clamp}} seems to have a fondness for this trope:
** ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' has Yue, who's hair, even braided, trails a good two feet behind him on the floor.
** Tomoyo from the same series has hair that reaches her waist. It's explained that Tomoyo's mother convinced her to let her hair grow out because it reminded her of Sakura's [[MissingMom late mother]].
** There's also Syaoran's mother Yelan, who's hair reaches her hips even when held up in a high ponytail.
** Yuuko in ''Anime/XxxHOLiC'' has hair that reaches her knees. Yuuko's assistant Maru fits the trope even better, her hair trailing along the floor even while up in pigtails, and Kohane's hair is about as long as Yuuko's, but being a child, she's half Watanuki's height, making it this.
** The twins Yui and [[spoiler:Fai]] had [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Fai_2848.png ankle length hair as children]]. Justified as [[PoweredByAForsakenChild they weren't anywhere near scissors]].
** The eponymous Manga/{{Kobato}} also has very long hair.
** Not to mention Kurogane's mother, Princess Emeraude, Sakura's mum and most of the people in ''Manga/RGVeda''.
** Also [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot Chii]] from ''Manga/{{Chobits}}''. It goes almost down to her feet.
* Sakaki's hair in ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' is so long that it can actually be seen between her legs when she's simply standing. She also appears to sit on it on a few occasions.
** Yomi's hair is hip-length, but curiously only in the anime. In the manga, it varies between chest length and waist length.
* The good Galaxia's hair in ''Manga/SailorMoon'' goes one step further and actually changes color from orange to red as it goes down past her shoulders. Some of Takeuchi's sketches show it literally going down to her feet, never mind how she manages to do it up in the {{odango}}-style [[GoodHairEvilHair Villainous Hairdo]]... Actually, there are ''tons'' of examples in ''Sailor Moon''.
** In the manga, pretty much everyone whose hair is not expressly cut short or tied up have this hair by the end. There's even a scene at the end of the first arc, after Endymion has been captured by the BigBad ''du jour'', when the Inner Senshi arrive at Usagi's house. She hasn't come out of her room in days, and the reason why is because her hair has suddenly grown to twice its previous length, even though she's been cutting it. (Her hair is now matching the hair she wore in her past lifetime as Princess Serenity.)
*** Hell, even Makoto's hair is pretty long (by normal standards), considering in most artwork it reaches her waist while in a high ponytail, and is curly/wavy besides...
** Particularly noteworthy is Mistress 9, whose hair grows so long she can tie her enemies up with it. While it's still attached to her head. Without impeding her mobility. It FILLS THE ENTIRE ROOM. In fact we can't even see the ends of it.
* Tsuruya from ''Literature/HaruhiSuzumiya'' has, in some official artwork, ankle-length hair. From the novels, Kuyou Suou also has very long (and full-bodied) hair. In fact, she got a FanNickname of "Hair Monster-tan", or occasionally [[Series/TheAddamsFamily "Cousin It"]] as a result. [[http://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/images/2/2c/Sh_v09_illust_003.jpg We don't think you'll have any problem discerning why.]]
** And also, Haruhi herself when she is {{Jerkass}} self who hasn't met Kyon yet (in the beginning [[spoiler:and in ''Disappearance''.]])
* From the ''Anime/LuckyStar'' anime, Konata's hair appears to be of variable length: sometimes it seems like it's about knee-length, and sometimes ankle-length. In fact, other than Ayano's waist-length hair, all the other "long-haired" characters (Kagami, Miyuki, Hiyori) have hair down past their hips, though this may just be a consequence of the PuniPlush art style. Although Konata's hair is as long in the manga, Kagami's hair is chest-length and Miyuki's is waist-length.
* Shirahime and Athena in ''KidouTenshiAngelicLayer''. Of course, they're dolls.
* The mermaid/idol forms of ''everyone'' in ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch''. It shrinks to a manageable length in their human forms.
* In the second ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' movie, girl-type Ranma has ridiculously long hair when she gets all dolled up as a concubine. There was also an episode of the series in which male Ranma's hair grows uncontrollably because he ate a dragon's whisker at one point.
** On the other hand, Shampoo has waist-length hair that doubles as GodivaHair when she undresses to show her cat curse to Ranma.
** Cologne's hair is longer than she is tall ([[MiniatureSeniorCitizens not that hard]], but still impressive).
* The Faeries in the {{manhwa}} ''Manhwa/FaeriesLanding'' have very long hair, and, at one point, the main heroine Fanta sacrifices a few inches of it to help her love interest, commenting that she's a bit sad to get rid of it because it was from the time she spent with her human father.
* Almost any important female character drawn by LeijiMatsumoto.
* Evil male example: Deep Blue from ''Manga/TokyoMewMew'' somehow manages it despite [[spoiler:[[BrainwashedAndCrazy possessing]] the MysteriousProtector, who has normal short hair in his regular form and a mid-back-length ponytail otherwise.]]
* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' has several instances of RapunzelHair, mostly in the movie, where Juri's hair is incredibly long and Utena's short style turns into a very long wave of curls that seemingly come out of a BagOfHolding. In the TV series, Anthy's usually done-up hair becomes this plus GodivaHair during several of her FanDisservice segments.
** The movie deliberately pulls a LampshadeHanging with Juri. While fencing, she wears a face-concealing mask that covers her entire head. Upon removing this mask, an enormous mass of curly, radiant hair cascades out, with volume that was ''several times larger'' than Juri's entire head.
* Kazusa from ''KamichamaKarin'' has hair that goes to her ankles. When she transforms, the whole thing gets put up in a single, huge bun on the back of her head.
* When we first see Miata in ''{{Claymore}}'' she is sitting in a pile of her own hair that appears to go down at least past her ankles, and while it appears to be cut at some point to fall to about her knees it still stays long enough to give her a very WildChild-like appearance.
** Later Agatha, a monstrous enemy monster, takes this to the extreme and combines this with PrehensileHair.
** Come to think of it, Yagi-sensei ''loves'' this trope, and also gives Riful this in her Awakened form with long hair that brings to mind NaughtyTentacles.
* Daisy and Violet from ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' make their living swimming and have hair past their waists. It would seem their ability/willingness to keep it in any kind of style at all is a sign of their girlish personalities. Their less girlish sister Misty demonstrably has this in some episodes, too, although nobody's quite sure how.
** Then there is Jessie with her giant... horn thing, which goes down to her waist and ''never moves''. Presumably all the hair gel needed to hold it in place makes her hair even heavier.
*** She finally lets it down in "Shield with a Twist", after 568 episodes. ''[[http://www.pokemopolis.net/pics/eps/dimension/shield04.gif Wow.]]''
** There's also Cynthia with hair that goes past her knees. When she's sat down the last foot of her hair is beside or behind her on whatever she's sat on.
** Iris goes UpToEleven by sporting what can be adequately described as a violet Wailord fin on her head. It's big enough to fit her ''Axew'' inside!
* In ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'', Yellow's hair goes past her waist, and that's with it tied up in a high ponytail.
** White's hair also goes past her waist with her humongous ponytail down.
* Another male example: Clari of ''ViolinistOfHameln'' has glossy blond hair of incredible fullness and volume...and it reaches his ''ankles''. To make this even more ridiculous, he participates in massive melee battles with it down.
* In ''Anime/{{Kamichu}}'', Yurie's hair grows longer than her height when she is exercising her most powerful divine powers, so it can become subject to a lot of DramaticWind. It becomes short again when she returns to normal.
* And another male example: Dragon Saint Shiryu from ''SaintSeiya''. Although plenty of Saints and other warriors have waist-length hair, Shiryu's flows down to his ''knees''. The girls generally have short-ish hair that rarely goes lower than armpit level, but Saori and Pandora have much longer hair; so does Shunrei, but she keeps hers in a long braid.
* ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'': In the manga, Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha have flowing waist-length hair. In the anime, however, Sesshoumaru's hair is often drawn knee-length ''or even longer''. Sesshoumaru also has a ruff of shoulder fur that is so long it wraps around his left shoulder, flows down his back and trails across the ground behind him like an excessively long tail. When he transforms into a dog, it correlates a neck ruff of extra-long fur that forms a diagonal line across his left shoulder to his back.
** Kikyou's hair reaches her hips when it's let down. In fact many female (and male) characters have long hair, it being the Feudal Era and all.
* ''CodeGeass'' has plenty of this, including V.V., a cute boy with hair that nearly touches the floor when he's standing.
* A similar example would be Mashiro Rima from ''ShugoChara''. Her hair nearly touches the ground when she stands. Quite fittingly, she prefers to walk slowly, even when hunting X-Eggs, where she often just stands in one place while her juggling sticks do the rest.
* Shana, Margery, and Yuji Sakai (as Snake of the Festival) of ''ShakuganNoShana'' fall under this trope.
* Hamona from ''Anime/WolfsRain'' would fit this trope. As would [[spoiler:her older sister, Jaguara.]] In Hamona's case, it also doubles as a strange case of GodivaHair.
* Ren and Ayame Sohma from ''Manga/FruitsBasket''.
** Izusu Sohma too, [[spoiler:until Akito [[TraumaticHaircut hacks it off]].]] {{Justified|Trope}} as [[WordofGod Natsuki Takeya]] originally wanted Isuzu to have short hair. However, being the horse of the Chinese Zodiac, it made more sense for her hair to be long and flowing like a horse's.
** Motoko Minagawa from the Prince Yuki Fan Club has long waist-length hair too.
* Aion, Chrono, Mary, Rizelle, Satella and Florette/[[spoiler:Fiore]] in flashbacks in ''Manga/ChronoCrusade''. (Chrono's hair has part of it cut short in the back, but he still has enough long hair to have a braid that goes down past his knees.) With that many characters, you could probably argue that Daisuke Moriyama has [[AuthorAppeal a thing]] for flowing, dramatic hair.
* Leon Oswald of ''Anime/KaleidoStar'' has waist-length grey-platinum hair, which (improbably) he never seems to restrain, even when performing ''on trapeze''.
* Ahiru/Duck in ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' has rather long hair in her girl form--even braided, it hangs down far past her waist. In her MagicalGirl form, however, it seems to be tied up or magically cut short.
* The DarkMagicalGirl in ''{{Pretear}}'' has long, flowing black hair. This seems to be magically induced, since [[spoiler:her true form, Takako, has hair in a more manageable length]]. One of Himeno's step-sisters also has long, flowing pink hair, and Hayate's hair reaches his waist.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' has a number of characters with waist-length or longer hair. The more eastern-stylized characters often have {{Hime Cut}}s, while more western characters fit this. An odd example is Kaede, who reveals hair that reaches long enough to trail on the ground when Chao removes her hair band.
** In an isolated incident, short-haired Ako decides that she should grow her hair out so she'll be more attractive. She receives help from a denizen of the [[MagicalLand Magic World]] who gives her some magic hair growth medicine. It works like a charm...[[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v26/c235/8.html for about 2 minutes. Then it goes too far in the other direction.]]
* Squalo from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'', who swore that he would never cut his hair until Xanxus becomes the next Vongola boss. Seeing as how that's extremely unlikely [[spoiler:he is seen ten years in the future with even [[UpToEleven longer and lustrous hair]].]]
* ''Manga/DGrayMan'':[[http://i246.photobucket.com/albums/gg115/Vadamerca/DGrayMan/jasdevi.jpg Jasdevi.]]
** Which most likely sparked [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZitIxvX1V_g this AMV.]]
** Also? [[DudeLooksLikeALady That's not a girl]].
** Kanda too, and his is usually done in a ponytail.
* Alice/B-Rabbit and [[spoiler:Jack]] from ''Manga/PandoraHearts''.
* Another male example, Rain from ''ImmortalRain''.
* Abel Nightroad, Hugue de Watteau and Isaak von Kampher from ''Manga/TrinityBlood'' certainly fit this trope! Whilst Abel and Hugue at least attempt to restrain their lovely locks, Isaak just lets his easily floor-length (and he's tall, so that's a lot of hair!) barnet wreak havoc on humanity. Or vampiremanity.
* Krad from ''Manga/DNAngel'', anyone? His blonde ponytail is easily longer than he is-this is noticeable when he flies and his hair has to catch up with him. It's also very, very pretty...
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'''s not known for its gorgeous hair, but Jiraya's colossal white ponytail, Tsunade and her surprisingly long pigtails, Ino and Inoichi Yamanaka's identical blonde topknots, and Neji's ponytail deserve a mention (which was so long ''it was used as a medium to channel [[HealingHands medical ninjutsu]] through'') in this section.
** The undisputed queen of this in Naruto however is the Fifth Mizukage. She has hair down to her ankles... even when it's in a top knot!
** And Kushina, Naruto's mother, has red hair that goes down to her ankles. In fact she was once able to make a trail when she had her hands tied by draping her hair over her tied hands and nonchalantly pulling some of it off to leave on the ground.
** Hanzo's hair is about waist-length, which along with his cap gives it an unfortunate resemblance [[EightiesHair to something you might see on a stereotypical hair-band member]]. Ironically, it was much ''shorter'' when he was younger.
** Mifune's hair is close to waist-length and spread out to a magnificent mane from shifting around in one panel.
** Kakuzu also has this, his hair reaching at least to his waist when his mask was removed.
* Kanu in ''Manga/IkkiTousen'' has hair that goes down to about her calves, as a reference to [[RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms Guan Yu]], who was famed for his long beard.
** The other Three Kingdoms gender flip ''KoihimeMusou'' does the same thing for the same reason.
* Most female characters in ''ShatteredAngels'' have hair that flows lower than their backside.
* Yuty, Lechty, Prome O, Dhianeila, and quite a number of the female cast in ''HeroicAge''.
* Almost everyone in ''Manga/SaiunkokuMonogatari''. '''Especially''' the men. The only exceptions are the cute boy and his LoveInterest, and they're well on their way, as he usually ties his up in a pony tail and, though we never see it down, hers is long enough to pin up elaborately.
** It makes historical sense, at least, since most of the characters are nobles.
* ''FushigiYuugi'' has four male examples: [[SoBeautifulItsACurse Hotohori]], [[WholesomeCrossdresser Nuriko]], [[DepravedHomosexual Tomo]], and [[AGodAmI Tenkou]]. As for females, [[DarkChick Soi]] has ''extremely'' long hair that almost reaches the ground [[SlipknotPonytail when it's loose]].
* Fujiwara no Sai of ''HikaruNoGo''.
* ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' has a male case in Pip Bernadotte; the man uses his hair as a scarf just to keep it out of the way. Rip Van Winkle also falls under this trope.
** Alucard's hair grows pretty long when he releases his seals.
** Integra's hair falls down past her rear and is a very light shade of blond to boot.
* Male example: Ray Kon from ''Anime/{{Beyblade}}'', especially noticeable when the white cloth keeping it together is torn off.
* A {{deconstruction}}, in ''Manga/TheSeveringCrimeEdge''. Mushiyanokouji Iwai, the "hair queen" had her hair cursed. It cannot be cut by any means. That leads her to quit schooling, and well, the inconveniences of having hair '''that long'''. Fortunately, Kiri's scissor is a cursed "Killing Goods" and [[ImportantHaircut cut Iwai's hair really short]] at the end of the first chapter, but her hair grows back to its original length in a span of a night.
* Aya and Maya Natsume in ''Manga/TenjhoTenge''.
* Archbishop Laura Stuart's hair in ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' extends down her back all the way to her ankles... and then it loops back up to the top of her head again. And then it goes through a hairpin and goes down to her waist again. Her hair is about ''14-feet long''.
* Most of the characters in ''TenchiMuyo'' have long hair. A large majority of them being Juraians (and royal ones at that), it's more or less a custom to have long hair and to be either tied back or put up in ponytails. It's even more telling when Washu, Ayeka and Sasami must put their hair up just to go into the hot springs or even sleep. The goddess Tsunami has the longest hair, since it reaches the floor and goes on a few feet.
* ''Anime/GundamWing'' has Dorothy Catalonia and Duo Maxwell tied for longest hair (at below-the-butt length), but Dorothy's is more noticeable because Duo always has his braided. Relena and Zechs deserve special mention, their hair reaching the small of their backs; in their case it seems to run in the family, since the few images we see of King Peacecraft show him with hair just as long as his children.
** Princess Marina Ismail in ''{{Gundam 00}}'', although the animators can't decide if it's butt-length or much longer.
** The [[Anime/GGundam Nobel Gundam]].
* Akuram, the BigBad from ''HarukanaruTokiNoNakaDe'', normally has hair held up by his MaskOfPower, but once the mask is removed, his hair goes well past his waist, and in the anime, past his his knees. When a live-action stage play based on the franchise included the character... let's just say comparisons to [[Series/TheAddamsFamily Cousin Itt]] were made by Western fandom.
** There's also Fuji-hime with floor-length hair, but this is justified by the series' [[FantasyCounterpartCulture (pseudo-)]][[JidaiGeki historical]] setting. A couple of female background characters also fit this trope for the same reason.
** The Miko from the third series, Nozomi, also fits this trope.
* Raditz of ''Manga/DragonBallZ''.
** At Super Saiyan 3, [[PowerMakesYourHairGrow hair grows out to this]] (see that page's image). Considering Raditz's hair is already down past his knees normally, [[UpToEleven how long would it be if he managed to get to SSJ3 (assuming it would grow longer)?]]
* Koinzell from ''Manga/UbelBlatt'' has his in two long braids down past his thighs, with ''knives'' at the ends. Occasionally he uses the knives when he can't find a sword or can't use his blood blades.
* In the ending of ''EurekaSeven'' movie, Eureka's hair mysteriously grown very long, up to her hips. Its the longest version of her hair that was seen compared to the TV episode 30 flashback version of herself.
* Yoko from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has pretty long hair, and in TheMovie she takes off the hairpins to [[spoiler:pull a gun out of her hair]]. Nia post-timeskip also qualifies.
* Several girls of ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'' have extremely long hair, to where the standard length seems to reach their knees, and most of those that have shorter hair are depicted as more [[{{moe}} childish]]. Given that most of them are {{Ojou}}s, it's explainable, but Hinagiku is depicted as having her long hair even while her parents are dealing with a large debt, and it's ''her'' hair which gets commented on.
* [[DudeLooksLikeALady Shalott]] of ''Manga/AirGear''.
* Sunao/Ran and Matsuri of ''LightNovel/{{Sukisho}}''.
* Moka from ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' has hair down to nearly her knees.
* Yuusuke from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' grows very wild, knee-length hair when [[spoiler:his demonic heritage is activated and he transforms into his Toushin form]]. Kurama's waist-length hair is a milder example, but he's able to wield his Rose Whip with it.
* Hannah of ''Manga/BlackButler''.
* ''MonColleKnights'' is rife with this, most females/bishonen have hair at least to the hips, and five have it down to the ground.
* ''{{Daimos}}'': Richter's hair trails just a little bit near his ankles. It's even longer than those of the women in the show!
* Mugi, Mio and Sawako from ''Manga/KOn'' have very long hair, which is often used for [[GodivaHair purposes of censorship]]. Azusa however trounces them all, with her high twin tails reaching her ''thighs''.
* Shigure from ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' when let her hair down comes down to her hips.
* Prozen from ''ZoidsChaoticCentury'' has hair that goes down to his knees
* Sera and Yuu from ''KoreWaZombieDesuka'' the former past her knees and the latter even past that.
* '' Dvine [LUV]'' has three characters fitting this trope: Mia, Sakura and Youra, though the latter gets her hair cut.
* Both Chikane and Himeko of ''Manga/KannazukiNoMiko'' have extremely long hair. Tsubasa is male example.
* In ''Anime/PonyoOnTheCliffByTheSea'', Ponyo's mother. It's positively wave-like. (Unsurprisingly.)
* In ''SaintBeast'', Rey, Luca, Shin, Gai, and Lucifer all have extremely long hairstyles.
* Togame of ''Literature/{{Katanagatari}}'' has extremely long hair, to the point where it's often wrapped ''several times'' around her travelling partner.
* All three of the main girls in ''Kodomo no Jikan'' have hair as long as they are tall, which gets {{lampshaded}} in one of the manga specials.
* Kuchiha of ''Manga/{{Amatsuki}}'' sports a ponytail so long that it doubles as a ScarfOfAsskicking. But even this is nothing compared to Ginshu and Byakuroku - their hair drags along the ground.
* ''Anime/DuelMasters'' has Hakuoh, whose long, flowing locks contribute to making him [[{{Bishonen}} one of the bishiest bishies ever.]] But even ''his'' hair has nothing on Kokujo's, which reaches down to around his ankles and could double as a second cape. The GagDub [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this with a complaint from Kokujo that his rematch with Shobu caused him to miss an appointment with his hairdresser.
* Tsumiki Miniwa from ''Manga/AcchiKocchi''
* [[NoNameGiven The main character]] of ''LightNovel/JinruiWaSuitaiShimashita'' has this. It makes sense after it was grown back with [[ACMEProducts Fairy Co.]] hair tonic [[spoiler:gaining sentience in the process]], but it was shown to be the same length before.
* Sanae from ''LightNovel/ChuunibyouDemoKoiGaShitai'' sports those, which she tie up into pig tails and tied weighted bags to act as improvised [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bolas bolas]], that, up until now, [[EpicFail have only worked on herself]].
* ''MacrossFrontier'''s [[DudeLooksLikeALady Alto]] actually has this - there's a scene where he let's it down and it's waist length.
* Chitoge in ''Manga/{{Nisekoi}}'' may not be quite as extreme as some other examples here, but her slightly-longer-than-waist-length hair does stand out against the undoubtedly more realistic take on hair this series uses. Not to mention that it's also very wide, forming roughly a pear-shaped silhouette when viewed from the front.
* Yet another male example: [[LongHairedPrettyBoy Iason]] [[TheBeautifulElite Mink]] from ''LightNovel/AiNoKusabi''.
* In ''CaptainTsubasa'', almost all the girls wear their hair short or on shoulder-length. The biggest exception is Levin's [[spoiler: deceased]] girlfriend Karin, whose wavy [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold blonde hair]] goes down to her hips.
** [[ExpositoryHairstyleChange Later in the series]], Carlos Santana becomes a RareMaleExample thanks to his [[BraidsOfAction small braids]] that reach his back.
* Many of the characters in the ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' franchise has long hair. Funny thing is is that, as normal civilians, it's rare to see the girls with incredibly long hair (the longest one being [[Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure Tsubomi]], whose hair reaching past her waist when not up in pigtails), but once transformed, all bets are off.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* If it weren't for Rapunzel, the characters in ''ComicBook/ADistantSoil'' would be the TropeNamer. Apparently, it's an Ovanian custom to have ''ungodly'' long hair, sometimes floor-length or even longer, and often elaborately styled. According to [[WordOfGod Coleen Duran]], their nobles use this to show status, that they can afford the servants needed to maintain the coiffures in question.
* Winnowill from ''{{Elfquest}}'' has a mane of ultrafine ebony hair that exceeds ankle-length by several feet and trails after her on the floor (she typically carries it draped elegantly over one arm, to make it easier to manage), as does the minor character Newstar after a point. Clearbrook's braid, at its full length, extends to her knees by Shards. And Timmain's hair also doubles as GodivaHair on several occasions. In all these cases the extreme length is made much more plausible by the character's very long lifespans--Winnowill is ''thousands'' of years old; plenty of time to grow her hair any length she likes.
* Starfire of the ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'' comic book. To put it mildly. It's [[http://www.titanstower.com/source/whoswho/starfire.html frequently portrayed]] as not so much ''ending'', as extending past the panel border and/or merging into a sort of rocket exhaust when she flies. It's shorter in [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans the TV cartoon]].
* [[ComicBook/XMen Jean Grey]] had hair like this in the late eighties and the nineties, but once those RunningTheAsylum came in, her hair grew short again.
** {{Storm}} had ridiculously long hair for someone living in the African wilderness and constantly standing in the wind/being rained upon. In the Joe Madureira era, she had a large mop of hair on her head which reached the floor, but wasn't straight (and mostly GodivaHair like in the '80s) but a large mop which looked like it had a life of its own and...quite heavy. She killed Marrow nonetheless.
** Rogue also had very long hair in the mid-nineties and the eighties.
* Artemis, from ''WonderWoman'', had (has?) a more than floor-length ponytail. It was [[DramaticWind always blown around]] so as to never touch the ground, whether or not anything else in the scene showed the effects of wind.
* ''ComicBook/RapunzelsRevenge''. Rapunzel in the Wild West, using her plait [[ImprobableWeaponUser as a lasso]].
* Rapunzel when she appeared in ''{{Fables}}''. Because she was cursed, she couldn't stay in place around the mundies for too long and had a rather modern twist to her curse...her hair was cut several times a day, then donated to a wig factory; and the people there thought she was a colony of Amish girls.
** It proved to be quite an interesting case of BlessedWithSuck. Rapunzel makes quite a lot of money selling her hair, she makes three sets of hair several feet in length a day that are completely undamaged from wear and tear or cosmetics. Unfortunately she can barely enjoy her fortune since she's not allowed to be in the normal world for more than three hours at a time and cannot stay in the same place for more than an hour.
* Malekith the Accursed, from ''{{Thor}}''. [[BlondGuysAreEvil Towheaded]] [[TheFairFolk dark elf]] who looks like the In-Betweener in [[VillainousCrossdresser drag]]. Has more yards of hair than most women in Marveldom with the possible exception of Medusa. One has to wonder how many times he's gotten stuck on a tree or a telephone pole while flying and why he even bothers with pouches when his bouffant could easily double as a bag of holding.
* Medusa of ''TheInhumans'' has extremely long prehensile hair that she can use as a weapon.
* In ''ComicBook/{{Noob}}'', Couette's hair easily touches the ground if she happens to be sitting on it. Se gets away with it by only doing it for her gaming avatar and having her hair (presumably) shoulder-length while still wearing her trademark GirlishPigtails in real life.

[[folder:Fairy Tales]]
* The TropeNamer and (il)logical extreme of this trope is Literature/{{Rapunzel}}, the FairyTale heroine whose hair was the ladder in and out of her prison tower; both the witch who imprisoned and the prince used this.
* OlderThanSteam: Other fairy tales that include this hair ladder (which is older than Rapunzel) include ''Literature/SnowWhiteFireRed'' and [[http://www.surlalunefairytales.com/rapunzel/stories/fairang.html The Fair Angiola]]. This type of tale is known as "Maiden in the Tower" and the earliest known version is [[http://www.surlalunefairytales.com/rapunzel/stories/petros.html Petrosinella]], recorded in 1634. RapunzelHair is not found outside it in fairy tales, and isn't always found in it. Somehow "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your knotted hemp rope" doesn't have the same ring.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fanfic]]
* During the Buffy series, Dawn usually had waist-length hair. In the Buffy/Stargate crossover fic ''FanFic/AllYourBaseAreBelongToHer'', she's been letting it grow out for most of two years, and it's now well past her hips. It's striking enough that it's the first thing Jack notices about her, and Daniel also notes it as he's assembling an mental profile of the mysterious girl who's just appeared in the Gateroom.
* The Grand Elder from the Homestuck fic ''FanFic/{{Cultstuck}}'' has hair down to his feet, and he's extremely tall.
* In the LuckyStar fanfic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8895129/1/Starbound Starbound]]'', this is the primary factor that each of twelve Magé Stones look for in a potential host, before [[BeehiveHairdo restyling her hair]] to reside in.
* Fan authors in Franchise/TolkiensLegendarium often create characters with very long hair, especially Elven ones, in keeping with characters that appear both in the original works and in the film adaptations.
** In ''FanFic/TheAwkwardAdventuresOfMeghanWhimblesby'', when Meghan [[{{Metamorphosis}} becomes an elf]], she suddenly has long wavy hair down to below her waist. Unlike most such characters, Meghan has trouble with her hair. It gets in her face and in her mouth, and is hard to clean and detangle. In chapter 23 "Arrivals", Meghan cuts her hair to about shoulder length.
** In ''FanFic/TheGameOfTheGods'', at least three of Morgoth's MarySue characters have hair down to their ankles.
** In ''FanFic/TheLastQueenOfGreenwood'', Caradel describes her own hair in chapter 5.
---> ''I had washed my hair and tied it up in rags, so that it curled slightly as it cascaded down my back. Although it was shorter than normal, it still reached nearly to the top of my legs.''
* In ''Fanfic/KitsuneNoKenFistOfTheFox'', Sakura has long pink hair that is stated to be her pride and joy. Unfortunately for her, during her fight with Ino in the [[TournamentArc Uchiha Zaibatsu Invitational Tournament]], Ino takes advantage of Sakura's hair length by grabbing it (with the expected pain that follows from such a thing) and holding Sakura in place to give her a beat-down.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* Rapunzel from ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' has 70 feet of hair! It's to be expected, since she's, you know, ''[[CaptainObvious Rapunzel]]''.
-->"And then I'll brush and brush, and brush and ''brush'' my hair."
** This is also one of the cases where it's justified; her hair has magic healing powers which stop working when the lock is cut, so she ''had'' to grow it out. [[spoiler:Also, averted in the end when she gets a pixie cut.]]
** It's also [[PrehensileHair just plain awesome]], likely due to its magic properties. It can't be pulled, doesn't fall out and is extremely strong. Also, at the one point where it gets wet, it's shown to dry in an impossibly short time.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'', Merida's hair, curly, reaches just about to her waist. Considering ''how'' curly her hair is, its true length is probably considerably longer. Her mother is a more classic example, as her straight hair, wrapped, reaches to her knees, and when unwrapped is six and a half feet long -- that is to say, longer than she is tall!
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* The BigBad of the first ''[[Film/TheCrow Crow]]'' movie had long black hair (worn loose), which is basically AnimeHair in real life.
** Similarly, the vaguely {{Yakuza}}-esque poker player in ''Film/CasinoRoyale''.
** Many of Michael Wincott's roles involve long, flowing hair, including ''1492: Conquest Of Paradise''.
* Princess Leia, when she finally lets her hair down in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''. For many viewers, this resulted in a FridgeLogic moment when we contemplated [[CompressedHair how she got all that hair into those hairstyles]] we'd seen in the previous movies. There's a [[http://skepchick.org/blog/2010/07/mythbusting-princess-leias-hair/ webpage]] discussing that her hairstyles would be impossible with that length of hair anyway. Possibly justified in that ROTJ is the last movie, and only there do we see it down, so it's probable that her hair was much shorter in the previous two movies and was growing during that time.
** There is a photograph of Carrie Fisher wearing her ''Empire Strikes Back'' wig with the braids unwrapped. They are just below waist length ie: about the same length as her hair in ''Return of the Jedi''.
* Three of Creator/CateBlanchett's most famous roles - Galadriel in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'', Queen Elizabeth I in ''Film/{{Elizabeth}}'', and Lady Marion Loxley in ''Film/RobinHood2010'' - have her with hair well past her waist.
* Creator/MonicaBellucci plays a Rapunzel type character with appropriately long hair in ''Film/TheBrothersGrimm''.
* Eva Green sports this hairstyle in a lot of her films such as ''Film/KingdomOfHeaven'', ''Film/TheGoldenCompass'' and most recently the TV series ''Series/{{Camelot}}''. All are either period or fantasy pieces.
* Creator/EvannaLynch has hair well past her waist as Luna Lovegood in the ''Film/HarryPotter'' films.
* In the Creator/JackieChan film ''Film/TheForbiddenKingdom'' there is a warrior who has extremely long white hair that she uses as a weapon.
* [[TheFairFolk Aisling]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfKells'' has long white hair that reaches just past her ankles.
* Olivia Hussey in the 1966 ''RomeoAndJuliet'' had waist-length hair. It reportedly inspired a huge number of young women to grow their hair out that long.
* Mika Rottenberg made [[http://www.magasin3.com/mikarottenberg/en/cheese/ a short film called "Cheese"]] loosely based on the real-life Sutherland sisters (see "Real Life" section below) featuring several women with appropriately-long hair.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Fierce gothy-girl Isa, from ''Literature/OnlyEchoesRemain'' has a magnificent mane of glossy black hair, which, thanks to her magical nature, is ''extremely'' 'shiny and swirly'--to the point where the smallest breeze sometimes makes her grumble about feeling like a living commercial for expensive hair products.
* In some parts of the world in the ''SwordOfTruth'' series, the length and style of a woman's hair is directly related to their status, so the Mother Confessor, the de facto leader and most powerful woman of this region, has very long hair. It's stated to be somewhere slightly above her hips and below the small of her back, and she cannot cut her own hair. It magically gives her great pain, as it does all Confessors.
* An implied literary example is found in the dramatic poem ''The Highwayman'', when Bess, the landlord's daughter, stands at the casement window, leaning over, and her lover stands up on his horse, she lets her hair out and it hits him in the face. (It's a lot more romantic than that, I assure you.)
--> ''He rose upright in the stirrups.\\
He scarce could reach her hand,\\
But she loosened her hair in the casement.\\
His face burnt like a brand\\
As the black cascade of perfume\\
came tumbling over his breast;\\
And he kissed its waves in the moonlight,\\
(O, sweet black waves in the moonlight!)\\
Then he tugged at his rein in the moonlight,\\
and galloped away to the west''.
* Quinn in Dian Curtis Regan's ''PrincessNevermore'' has hair almost to her feet.
* ''WalkTwoMoons'': Sal's hair is long enough to sit on.
* Creator/JRRTolkien's ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' had Lúthien magically grow her hair long, in order to use it to escape her elvish father -- he had grounded her in a treehouse (there's a pun in there somewhere...) to stop her from following her mortal lover, whom he had sent away to [[EngagementChallenge get rid of him]]. She makes a rope for escaping the treehouse, and a cloak which induces sleep in anyone else it touched. Of course, this leaves her nearly bald until it grows back.
* In the later ''Literature/AnneOfGreenGables'' books, Anne's friend and neighbor Leslie has blonde hair down to her feet, which she keeps pinned up except when she's just washed it.
* Lampshaded by Rapunzel in the Piers Anthony ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' novels who is, of course, based on the fairy tale of the same name. Her magic talent is her ability to grow her hair to exceedingly long lengths, never feel the weight of it, and have it take up no more volume on the top of her head when wrapped up than she wants it to.
* In the ''DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse'' novel "[[http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/ebooks/lungbarrow/ Lungbarrow]]", the Doctor's cousin Innocet has resolved not to cut her hair until she sees daylight again. This results in her having to walk about with 673 years' worth of hair in a colossal plait.
* In LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Cetaganda]]'', all the Haut Ladies of the Star Creche have extremely long hair. Towards the end of the book, one of them has been restrained by the simple expedient of tying her hair in place. Miles (who has come to rescue her, amongst other things) suggests cutting it and she reacts with horror. He winds up distracting her and cutting it anyway. She is NOT pleased with him.
* Possibly hinted in ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''. Bella listens to a Quileute legend about a pair of vampires. The shapeshifters killed the male, so his mate (described as having knee-length golden hair) comes and attacks the village.
* In Jane Yolen's ''Literature/GreatAltaSaga'', Jenna and her shadow-sister Skada have braids that go down past their waist. While it's pointed out that this is impractical for warriors, it turns out to be helpful when they [[spoiler:strangle the BigBad with them.]]
* In Creator/ENesbit's comedic fairy-tale story "Literature/{{Melisande}}", Princess Melisande is cursed at birth to be bald. When she grows up she is given a magical wish, and at the prompting of her mother requests long, lovely, ''fast-growing'' hair. The result is the Rapunzel Hair from hell.
* Probably [[Literature/TheBible King David's]] son Absalom:
-->Whenever he cut the hair of his head -- he used to cut his hair from time\\
to time when it became too heavy for him -- he would weigh it, and its weight\\
was two hundred shekels (five pounds) by the royal standard. -- '''2 Samuel 14:26'''
* Della in ''Literature/TheGiftOfTheMagi'' has beautiful brown hair that, when unpinned, reaches to her knees. [[spoiler:[[ItWasHisSled It doesn't have a happy ending - the hair, that is]].]]
* As for Buttercup in ''Literature/ThePrincessBride'', her hair length is never specified, but at eighteen the narration mentions it's never been cut. For most people, that would be butt-length or thigh length. Long enough to sit on.
* Miss Hardbroom in ''TheWorstWitch'' series keeps her hair tied up in a really tight bun 24/7 except for the Halloween celebrations, where the girls are amazed that it goes right down to her waist. Mildred remarks that she doesn't look half as frightening when her hair is down.
* In Alexandre Dumas' ''TheWomanWithTheVelvetNecklace'', Arsene is described as a tall woman, and her hair doesn't just fall past her hips, it apparently trails on the ground behind her.
* Susannah, the protagonist of ''Repeat It Today With Tears'' by Anne Peile, has this in the first half of the story. It's never described how long her hair is, but after she chops it all off [[spoiler:after being committed to a mental institution]], it takes five paper bags to dispose of all the hair.
* This is a sign of a warrior's aptitude amongst the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Dothraki]] of ''ASongOfIceAndFire''. Men only [[ImportantHaircut cut their hair]] when they have been defeated in battle. Khal Drogo, the reknowned leader of the largest khalesar, [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking had a braid of hair that went to his thighs]].
* Mishani's literal ankle-length hair in ''Literature/WeaversOfSaramyr''.
* Queen Susan of [[ChroniclesOfNarnia Narnia]] is described as having black hair down to her feet.
* One of Pavel Bazhov's stories is about a man who wants to marry a girl with gold RapunzelHair. The problem is that 1) It's ''real'' gold hair, and the writer tends to avert HollywoodDensity. 2) Her father is [[ParentalMarriageVeto against their marriage]]. 3) Said father is a demigod serpent with ''literal'' control over all gold. 4) The hair becomes longer with each failed attempt. Therefore, by the end the guy (stated to be exceptionally strong, but still) has to carry half a ton of weight which is being actively pulled out of his arms.
* In the ''Literature/LittleHouseOnThePrairie'' book, ''These Happy Golden Years'', Laura Ingalls (Wilder) notes at one point that her hair is down to her knees. In another book in the series, Ma Ingalls notes that when she married Pa, her hair was equally long.
* From the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' series, there's Lieutenant Abigail Hearns, [[BadassPrincess Miss Owens]], of the Grayson Space Navy -- the first native-born Grayson woman to join the service. Her hair is nearly waist-length and frequently terribly inconvenient, but she simply can't bring herself to cut it; you can take the girl off Grayson but you can't take the Grayson out of the girl, and [[LongHairIsFeminine no respectable Grayson woman would ever cut her hair short]]. Thus, she deals with it as is, no matter how frustrating it sometimes is for her.
* Many of the vampyres in ''Literature/TheHouseOfNight'' have long, flowing hair.
* In Robin McKinley's TheHeroAndTheCrown , one of the rivalries between Aerin and Galanna is hair length. Galanna's is long enough to sit on, but Aerin's is ankle-length when it's wet.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* In ''TheTenthKingdom'', Virginia is briefly cursed with very-fast-growing hair, that requires both other characters to help her carry it and almost smothers her overnight. Of course, it's a reference to Rapunzel, and, yes, the hair eventually ''does'' get used as a rope. Eventually Wolf takes a magic axe to it, [[UnnecessaryMakeover leaving her with a very short hairstyle]].
* Piper in ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' grew her hair to waist length in the second season and kept it pretty much that same length for the rest of the series.
** Phoebe gains Rapunzel Hair in the season 5 finale where the sisters are transformed into the Greek Goddesses. Phoebe is given Aphrodite's long golden tresses. Paige also gets waist-length hair when she is temporarily transformed into a wood nymph
* The season 1 finale of ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' had Sabrina trapped in a tower by a troll so she cast a spell on her hair to make it long enough for Harvey to climb up.
** Hilda also ate "hair soup" in another episode that gave her waist-length tresses as well as a full beard.
** Roxie's hair also grew to past her waist by the show's seventh season.
* Shelly Du Vall naturally adopted the traditional long golden hair when she played Rapunzel in an episode of ''FaerieTaleTheatre''. Even after Rapunzel's TraumaticHaircut the hair was still down to the floor.
* A BBC TV series that modernised fairy tales had Charity Wakefield as a tennis player named Rapunzel, named so because her hair went down to her thighs (she had her own shampoo line from this, which is why her mother kept it long). She hung it out the window and it even reached down to a balcony below.
* True to her book counterpart in ''The Worst Witch'' Kate Duchene sported the waist length hair as Miss Hardbroom though Mildred Hubble was shown to have hair the same length when she let it loose.
* Amy Barnes in ''Series/{{Hollyoaks}}'', has since had her hair cut short as part of a domestic abuse storyline.
* The mother (Diana) in ''Series/PartyOfFive'' is stated to have had incredibly long hair all down her back and her husband wouldn't allow her to cut it short.
* Quite a few ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' heroines have had waist-length hair, as well as at least one male character (Makito in ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger''.) Eri from ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger'' has hair almost long enough to sit on, and ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'''s Joe begins the series with a ponytail halfway down his back that eventually grows out past his waist (it was attached to the actor's real hair, which grew out considerably over the course of a year.)
** On the ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' side of things, Tommy Oliver's hair had reached this point by the end of ''Series/PowerRangersZeo''. It was therefore rather surprising to see him with his hair cropped short in "[[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Forever]] [[MilestoneCelebration Red]]". It stayed short throughout [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Dino Thunder]] too, and is treated as IWasQuiteAFashionVictim. "It was the style at the time."
* Played for laughs in ''TheMuppetShow''. A group of Whatnots sing "Aquarius" from ''{{Hair}}'' while their hair rapidly grows throughout the 1-minute song to the point where they can't see or move properly.
* Also spoofed in ''TheGoodies'' when Graham goes to rescue Rapunzel from her tower by climbing her hair, only when he puts his weight on it he yanks her out of the tower.
* In ''H2OJustAddWater'' Miss Chatham's hair is very long, though we only ever see it partially down. Presumably the full thing reaches to bum length.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* For years, singer Crystal Gayle's hair was long enough to trail behind her until she cut it to ease the strain on her neck caused by wearing it that way.
* Similarly Music/YoshikiHayashi, the leader of VisualKei band Music/XJapan cut his waist long hair to the despair of his female fans, because it took him hours to wash and care for it every day, and because it was making his neck pain worse.
* [[http://img254.imageshack.us/img254/4558/dannycecati23ais5.jpg Danny Cecatti]], former lead singer of Pegazus.
* [[http://www.hermanli.com/images/hermanli_by_rudy.jpg Herman Li]], guitarist in [=DragonForce=], has hair down to his knees. His headbangs are pretty wicked.
** And their former lead singer, ZP Theart, has waist-length hair. There's a reason why two of the band's three music videos feature [[DramaticWind wind machines]].
* Brian Fair, lead singer of Shadows Fall, also has hair down to his knees... in dreadlocks. Very impressive when windmilling.
* [[http://upabove.com/PRESS_VISION_PANGAEA/vlrgweb.jpg Key Kool]] (front/center) of Visionaries has nearly waist-length hair; it's not very noticeable since he usually wears in a knot at the base of his head. After his hair stylist marveled at his "virgin hair" (no bleaching, dying, or perming, just a ''huge'' amount of gel every day) he cut it off to donate to charity. It's since grown back (and, yes, he did dress as a Chinese person one Halloween).
* Long hair is a common thing with musicians, particularly Music/HeavyMetal to the point where [[FanDumb some metalheads]] [[SoBadItsGood hilariously]] treat the length of one's hair as SeriousBusiness.
* Peter "Aconite" from Novus has hair down to his waist.
* {{Vocaloid}} features Miku Hatsune and her floor-length green pigtails. She's not the only one though--there's also Luka, Haku, Neru, Miki, Lily, and Gakupo.
** Also Iroha (she has a bob and a really long ponytail). And from the new batch, we get IA and Ring, with Rion as a much less extreme example.
** MAYU, MAIKA, SeeU, and to an extent, Merli.
* Exo-Chika from VisualKei/Electronica duo Aural Vampire has hair that goes past her butt.
* In the SpiceGirls video for "Holler" Victoria's hair is past her waist. Especially glaring since the Double-A side it was released with ("Let Love Lead The Way") has her with a pixie cut. In the same video Emma is shown with knee-length hair in her 'water' scenes while it's at its normal length in the group scenes. Mel C was also sporting some pretty lengthy hair in the video for "Goodbye".
* In a similar case of a Double-A side with hair long in one video and short in the other, Tina Barrett from SClub7. The "Two In A Million" video has her hair reaching to her waist while it's shoulder-length in the video for "You're My Number One"
* The song "Legs" by ZZTop includes the lyric, "She's got hair / down to her fanny."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Religion and Mythology]]
* Oddly enough, this trope is found in the communion of Christian Saints: Saint Mary Magdalene is traditionally depicted as having very long hair. It arises from the conflating of Mary Magdalene with the unnamed woman who washed Jesus' feet and dried them with her hair, then anointed them with perfumed oil, doubling as a sign of her (apocryphal) sensuous, extravagant life pre-Jesus.)
* Sikhs of any sex are commanded not to cut any of their hair. It is combed twice daily and kept tightly wound underneath their turban.
* Apostolic women are mandated by their faith to never cut their hair. However, many of them have it in ponytails or buns.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* A possible taboo for the Wu Jen class in DungeonsAndDragons is "Cannot cut hair". Of course, you know this would be the obvious result.
** Also from DungeonsAndDragons, a Braid Blade (as it sounds, a short blade tied to the end of a person's braid), introduced in Dungeon Magazine #120, would logically require hair of this length to make effective.
** In the ForgottenRealms setting, Eilistraee, the goddess of the good-aligned drow, is represented with ''very'' long hair.
* The ''{{Warhammer 40000}}'' Dark Eldar gladiator queen Lelith Hesperax has hair long enough to use as an entangling net (naturally it is woven with poisoned barbs too) but then she is also skilled enough with a simple metal blade to not need a power weapon to bypass armour, and fast enough on her feet to dodge bullets even without combat drugs, even with all that hair.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theatre]]
* Melisande, in Maurice Maeterlinck's play "Pelleas and Melisande", has hair so long that, when she leans out from the window of a tower, her hair almost reach the bottom.
* Rapunzel in ''IntoTheWoods'', natch.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Detective Daria in ''TouchDetective''... somewhat subverted/lampshaded, as the main character can touch her hair, but discovers it's pretty coarse, dirty and full of split ends.
* Nariko in ''HeavenlySword'' has this, and it has been [[http://www.duelinganalogs.com/comic/2007/08/16/heavenly-absurd/ made fun of]].
* Another male example: Zero in both ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' and ''[[VideoGame/MegaManZero Zero]]''. [[spoiler:By default, so's Omega Zero.]]
** Zero's co-star [[GadgeteerGenius Ciel]] isn't so far off, either. And the official art depicts her hair as ''even longer''.
** Two more male examples: ''VideoGame/MegaManZX's'' Giro and Vent, the latter effective in ''Advent''. Vent in ZX and Aile in both games is a case of CompressedHair when using Model ZX.
* The female versions of the Psychopomp, Seeker, Spear Master, Ravener and Gunner bloodlines in ''BloodlineChampions'' have this.
* Millia Rage from ''GuiltyGear'' combines this with PrehensileHair, and turns both UpToEleven. The victory pose where she lets it down and about a third of it drags on the ground around her seems impressive, but you slowly realize it can somehow grow a lot longer than that when you see the ends of her hair tunnel into the ground, then come up and stab someone five feet away.
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' has several examples:
** ''[[SarcasmMode Imperishable Night]]'' [[SarcasmMode is better off retitled]] ''[[SarcasmMode Rapunzel Hair Night]]'': Reisen Udongein Inaba, Keine Kamishirasawa, Eirin Yagokoro, Kaguya Houraisan, and Fujiwara no Mokou.
** [[WitchSpecies Patchouli Knowledge]] has been noted[[note]] In ''Perfect Memento in Strict Sense''[[/note]] to look exactly like a human, aside from her long purple hair.
* Sephiroth from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''.
** ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'' actually [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this by having his fanclub e-mail specifically state that he requires an entire bottle of shampoo and conditioner every time he washes his hair to properly maintain it.
** He's not the only one to possess this trait in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy''. The Emperor of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'', Ultimecia of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', Cosmos, the goddess of harmony in this game all have hair of similar length. The Onion Knight has a rat-tail mullet that reaches his knees.
** Aerith and Tifa, though the latter shortens it a little later on for the movie. In the game, both of them have hair of the same kind of length as Sephiroth, but keep it tied so that it doesn't flow all over the place.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' Princess Garnet has hair that reaches her butt until she cuts it, it also has very rapid growth as it grows back to that full length in presumably half a year (though this could be attributed to the devs not bothering to make yet another model for the ending scenes and her hair growning back would be a good indicator that time had passed).
* Another ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' example: Yunalesca in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' and Nooj in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' both have ridiculously long hair. [[spoiler:Yunalesca's might not need the maintenance though, since she's dead.]]
** And Yuna from X-2. While ''most'' of her hair is very short, [[ShortHairWithTail one section at the base of her neck has been allowed to grow down to her ankles]] in the two years between the games. It's wrapped up and (presumably) braided.
** FFX again, Lulu's hair is waist length, but tied up high and in braids. Presumably, her hair must be longer once its let down.
* Averted in ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' and ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2''. All of the possible unmodded female hairstyles in the first game were shoulder-length at most; in the second the longest female hair comes down to the middle of the character's back.
* Quite a few ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' characters have hair that reaches at least down to their hips, including Flonne, Lamington, Yukimaru, Fukubi, Sapphire, Asuka, and Salvatore. This is only counting ''plot'' characters, mind you - if we were counting generic units or bonus NipponIchi characters, we'd be here all week.
* ''PopNMusic'' has Ophelia (no relation to [[TheOphelia that trope]]), who has black, feet-length hair that she ties into a long ponytail. Her full-gauge win and lose animations consist of her hair untying itself to show just how much of it she has. Appropriately enough, the song that she's the character for is called "Rapunzel".
* Later incarnations of SonicTheHedgehog feature hair bordering on this trope.
* Shanoa from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaOrderOfEcclesia'' has insanely lengthy hair that is meticulously animated sprite by sprite. Even if she barely moves, her hair flails out. [[SexyBacklessOutfit And damn, does she know how to lift it...]]
* [[spoiler:Miang Hawwa]] has this hair in the opening video in ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}''.
** So does Elly.
* It is often missed and [[FridgeLogic sometimes hard to credit]] given the SheFu, but Cammy from the ''StreetFighter'' games sports BraidsOfAction that reach her ankles. Yes, the [[FetishFuel handle/rein jokes]] write themselves.
* Hyo Imawano from ''VideoGame/RivalSchools'' keeps his ankle-long white hair in a ponytail, until he is possessed by his dead father Mugen to become Demon Hyo, after which his hair is let loose but floats eerily in the air as if he was underwater.
* In ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'', Grolla, Liebea, Lilli, Strudel, and Iris all have hair reaching down to around their knees. The same could be said for Tia, Freudia, and Zorne as well if they unbanded their hair.
* VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} definitely qualifies, to the point Rapunzel herself would be jealous. She also qualifies for GodivaHair because her SpyCatsuit ''is'' her hair. It flows off her body whenever she attacks.
* Xigbar in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' and ''358/2 Days'' has an almost butt-length ponytail.
* Sophie in ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'' has [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair lilac]] [[GirlishPigtails twintails]] that almost reach the ground. [[spoiler: Fortunately, maintenance isn't a problem for robots.]]
* Cynthia from ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'' has hair down to her legs.
** Karen in the ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver''/''Crystal'' games had her hair in shoulder-length. In the [=HeartGold=] and [=SoulSilver=] remakes, it reachers to her hips.
** The two pale in comparison to Caitlin in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite''. Take [[http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/0/04/Black_White_Caitlin.png one]] look at her official art. That's not even ''all'' of it. Her art in Gen IV was actually a bit more realistic.
** A Pokemon example of this trope is Zoroark.
** One of the series' few male examples: N.
* Lucia from FireEmblem [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn]]. It even becomes a plot point in Radiant Dawn [[spoiler:due to her TraumaticHaircut.]]
** Also, Sophia from [[FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Sword of Seals]]. Her hair easily reaches her feet ''and goes even further''.

** Cordelia from FireEmblemAwakening possesses long red hair that reaches her ''knees''. [[spoiler: Her daughter of the future]] Severa has just-as-long hair, which she keeps in GirlishPigtails.
* StringyHairedGhostGirl Cynthia in ''SilentHill4: The Room''. She also uses it as a weapon.
* Male example: Hawk/Hawkeye from ''SeikenDensetsu3''.
* SexyStewardess Cammy Meele from ''AceAttorneyInvestigations'' fits this trope to a T.
** From the main series, Athena Cykes and Maya Fey, though the latter's hair length varies in official art.
* Litchi Faye-Ling in ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' has a really long hair, even after tied to a ponytail. Like Millia above, the ponytail can come off and it still touches the ground.
** Pfffft. Try ''the whole female cast''. Well, barring Makoto and Bullet (who appropriately both have BoyishShortHair), and Tsubaki (who's flowing red hair is at a realistic length). Taokaka has long blonde braids sticking out of her hood, and Noel has really long hair as well but it's all kept in that puffy blue beret hat thing most of the time. Nu-13 and Lambda-11 both have a knee-length braid [[KnifeNut with a knife on the end.]]
* Shantae's purple hair in ''{{Shantae}}'' reaches very close to the ground level.
* As portrayed in ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'', the Irish fae known as Leanan Sidhe has hair so long ''she's '''balancing''' on it'' (technically she's actually hovering, but that's the way it looks). In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney'', "She has really long hair. No, ''really'' long" is the only hint Anthony needs to give you when you need to take his love confession to one.
** Yomotsu Shikome as portrayed in MegaTen games may count too; It is unclear whether or not it is just a floating head with ''six feet of hair substituting for an actual body''.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' has Asch and Luke (before the latter cuts his off). Tear keeps her hair at a similar length.
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' warrior-types seem [[ImprobableHairstyle improbably fond of this trope]]:
** In the first game, AntiVillain Menardi has loose blonde hair at least to her hips, probably farther.
** [[EvilIsSexy Chalis's]] knee-length pink hair in ''[[GoldenSunDarkDawn Dark Dawn]]''.
** Sveta's white BraidsOfAction in ''Dark Dawn'' reach around her ankles in her character art, where she's whipping them around, so they're probably [[UpToEleven actually longer]].
** Eoleo's improbably red ponytail for a male example. Really, he's a pirate and he wears his hair like ''that'' on the open seas? How does he keep it from tangling? [[MundaneUtility Psynergy?]]
* ''KingOfFighters'': Duo Lon is definitely one of the huge embodiments of this trope. Xiao Lon as well in King of Fighters Maximum Impact Regulation A.
* Nikki Chan of ThreeDO fighting game ''VideoGame/WayOfTheWarrior'' sports a ponytail which dangles to her legs and can be used as a weapon in some of her attacks.
* Lara Croft in ''Franchise/TombRaider'', at least in II, III and IV, In IV, if it were not braided, it would be at least knee-length, but it gets progressively shorter in the sequels as they usually feature her at a younger age.
* Estelle Bright from ''LegendOfHeroesVI'' has twin tails that reaches to her skirt.
* The female protagonist in ''VideoGame/LegendOfMana'', complete with ImprobableHairstyle.
* Martial artist Lita Branchimont from ''[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VideoGame/AtelierIrisEternalMana Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana]]'' has very long, brown hair.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Misuzu from ''VisualNovel/{{AIR}}'' has long hair past her hips, that she usually keeps in a long ponytail. It doesn't seem to hinder her mobility in the slightest, even when it gets wet. Getting it cut [[ImportantHaircut signifies an important turn of events in the series]].
* From ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'': Tomoyo, Kyou and Sanae all fits with their fall slightly past their hips.
* Rider in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. The length is pretty inconsistent, at times appearing waist length and at one point when running up a building it trails a good two or three feet below her.
* ''VisualNovel/GSenjouNoMaou'' has Haru Usami's trademark head of hair which [[LampshadeHanging everyone she meets comments on]]. It's a huge mess of hair which runs past her hips. It's also plot-related, as when she was a kid, [[spoiler:she had a boy-cut. Upon meeting Kyousuke, he comments that he'd like it if Haru had longer hair. The problem was that he didn't specify how long he wanted it.]]
* Eris, Shizuku, and Runa from the GirlsLove {{Eroge}} ''VisualNovel/SonoHanabiraNiKuchizukeWo'' all have really long hair that fits this trope. Eris and Shizuku are paired together in the eighth game which gave that game the [[FanNickname nickname]] of "''VisualNovel/SonoHanabiraNiKuchizukeWo: [[FetishFuel Hair Fetish]] Edition''".
* In a flashback in ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'', Arcueid (pictured) is shown to have had floor length hair before her sister Altrouge chopped it off after beating her in a fight, leaving her with the familiar short hair of the present day. In MeltyBlood she gets the long hair back when she turns into [[spoiler:Archetype Earth]].
* Beatrice of ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' [[ExpositoryHairstyleChange is revealed to have this]] [[spoiler:after she has a breakdown and becomes an EmptyShell]] in the fifth game. Possibly lampshaded, as when we first see her, [[spoiler:Virgilia is brushing her hair for her.]]
* In KatawaShoujo, it is revealed that [[spoiler:Misha's pink hair]] used to be brown and much longer, almost to her waist. Out of the date-able girls, three have long hair: Hanako, Lilly and Emi; in the meantime, Miki Miura is just as longhaired as them.
* ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'' gives us Kotonoha Katsura and her hip-length hair. Hikari also has pretty long hair, but since she keeps it on pigtails it doesn't look ''that'' long.
* In ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'', both Kurugaya and Kud have very long hair. In particular, Riki seems to have a thing for Kud's hair - he gets distracted by it several times, and there's even a scene/CG where they have to cuddle up together with Kud in front of him and he ends up stroking his hands through it. Kud thinks it's a little weird, but not in a bad way.
* In the middle of Season 2, ''RoseGunsDays'' introduces a young girl who loses her memories after being hit by [[TheHeroine Rose]]'s car while running away from procurers. The latter offers her her protection in apology, and names her Rapunzel because of this trope. Rose herself has very long hair − [[AnimeHair cut in a downright impossible way.]]
* In the {{eroge}} ''Madou Souhei Kleinhasa'', Llun's hair reaches her hips, and Roze's hair is long enough to drag on the ground, despite the fact that they're are supposed to be soldiers.

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* [[TowerOfGod Twenty-fifth Baam/Jyu Viole Grace]] gets this after the TimeSkip.
* In ''Webcomic/ItsWalky'', Sal has waist-length hair long enough to cover all her naughty bits during a post-sex scene, despite being an ActionGirl who relies primarily on speed and mobility in combat, though she is super-strong.
* [[http://www.monsterful.com/chapter11page10.php Samantha Thing]] and [[http://www.monsterful.com/chapter09page19.php Michelle Flammel]] from ''{{Monsterful}}''.
** Justified with Samantha considering her monster species (Ittboo) are beings with permanent long hair, and since her mother is a Futakuchi-Onna she's also able to control her hair at will.
* The webcomic/novel ''AlienDice'' is full of characters with long hair. Chel's hair falls to her knees, Claudia's curls are about knee length. Riley, like most Rishan, has hair past his ankles, but it's mostly worn up. Damien's hair is down to his ankles. Maelinn's hair is ankle length as well. Zaile's hair is very long when compared to his siblings, as a sign of his higher status than them, but shorter than . The alien characters are justified since long hair is a sign of status in their culture, and Litan never cut their hair. Chel's hair, however, is never really mentioned.
* Justified in ''{{Drowtales}}'', since hairstyle is used to advertise one's social status, with short hair being reserved for slaves and servants. This means that when [[BadassNormal Vaelia]] is officially promoted to be Ariel's guard she gets hair extensions put in so she won't be mistaken for a slave. Also, Ariel has [[VoluntaryShapeshifting another use]] for her long hair.
* Princess Volutpua in ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob''.
* ''Webcomic/{{Reliquary}}'' takes place in a religious culture where hair corresponds to rank. It's common to see clergy with waist-length hair, and the visiting Cardinal's is even longer than that.
* Kili of ''Webcomic/TheDragonDoctors'' used to have short hair, but ever since she and her boyfriend Greg became werewolves, their hair has started growing incredibly fast and is now pretty much always at this length. This resulted in at least one instance of GodivaHair when Kili exploded out of her clothes during one werewolf transformation.
* This is a common style in [[AMagicalRoommate Umbria]], even having a spiky variant worn by Felincia. {{Lampshaded}} in an early arc, where Aylia "repairs" a hideous haircut... by making Jenny's hair grow out too far.
-->'''Jenny:''' How is ''this'' solving the problem?!\\
'''Aylia:''' Very effectively, I'd say.
* Reagan in ''TemplarArizona''.
* Machbom in ''BombermanLandParody'' was stated to once had hair that trails a few inches across the ground (Present Mach only had shoulder length hair) before Shiro severed it off. Some of the fanarts of him by the same Author also shows that it is inconvenient as his hair gets tangled onto everything prior to getting it cut off
* Zintel from ''FlakyPastry'' had this for some time. It seemed to have a mind of its own, though sometime after it was cut short in battle (wherein it mummified her opponent) she showed off the ability to change her hairstyle with a mere thought.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Seekers}}'', Nareen's high ponytail reaches almost to her feet.
* Deirdre Bradley in ''Webcomic/{{Avalon}}''. She's even able to braid it in no more than eight seconds due to not having it cut for twenty years.
* Haley of ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' recently upgraded her short-short hair to RapunzelHair [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0752.html here]]. For bonus points, she's combined it with GodivaHair. After having a little fun with it, [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0754.html she cuts the hair back to a manageable length]].
* Thae from ''OverlordAcademy'' somehow manages to be an ActionGirl with [[ImprobableHairstyle ankle-length blonde hair]]
* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2005-09-02 Elliot]] during Grace's Birthday Party. Susan has this naturally and it was lampshaded [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2010-04-19 quite rudely]].
** [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2010-03-17 Noah also has this]], despite being male. It's one of the things that make people very confused as to his gender when they first meet him.
* ''{{Homestuck}}''. Some characters have long hair, but the troll Empress [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/scratch.php?s=6&p=005963 has them all beat]]. In turn, this inspired the fan artists to draw her with even bigger hair.
** Accordingly, Meenah, her Pre-Scratch incarnation, has hair that is actually ''longer than she is tall'', though she keeps it done up in twin rattails.
* In ''Webcomic/EarsForElves'':
** Rolan and Luero have hair to just below their knees, and it's likely that Myari would if she let it down.
** Tanna had this [[http://www.earsforelves.com/archives/593 when she was young]], but now the longest her hair gets is to her mid-back.
** Several characters on [[http://www.earsforelves.com/archives/309 this page]] do; then again, their hair does serve as panel breaks and the art is very stylised.
* In ''{{Sinfest}}'', [[http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=2177 Monique briefly fantasizes about being like this -- and getting to be Rapunzel on top.]]
* Johanna in ''{{Webcomic/Sire}}''. She is 5'8" and [[http://sire.smackjeeves.com/comics/891542/johanna-character-sheet/ her hair goes to her ankles.]]
* Yuki and Ping in ''{{Webcomic/Megatokyo}}''.
* A yet-to-be-officially-named character of ''Webcomic/CreativeRelease'' has feet-length, blonde hair.
* Amber from ''{{Webcomic/Matchu}}'' has hair so long she can roll into a ball with it, and her morning routine consists of getting rid of things that get stuck in her hair, such as a quarter, her cat, a pizza box, an a-bomb, and ''her best friend''. It is unwise to [[BerserkButton suggest she cut it off or donate it.]]
* Rachel from ''{{Webcomic/TheSenkari}}'' has hair well below her waist. This is despite officially being a soldier in an army armed with swords.
* ''{{Webcomic/Blindsprings}}'' has [[http://blindsprings.com/comic/002 Tamaura]], whose hair is twice the size of her frail body and is composed entirely of RegalRinglets.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''WebAnimation/BrokenSaints'' heroine Shandala has hair like this at first, but quickly loses it in favor of a shoulder-length do by Chapter 6.
* In SurvivalOfTheFittest v4, we get Bridget Connolly, who is well-known for having knee-length red hair, though usually tied back. This was until she cut it while on the island, after hearing about [[spoiler:the death of her best friend, Raina Morales.]]
* Slipknot, from the ''GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'' has PrehensileHair that hangs down to his ankles, even if one takes his topknot into account.
* Played with by ''Webcomic/CyanideAndHappiness'' animation Repulsel. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTZ1znQAO8o WARNING link potentially NSFW]].
* It's a common style in fanfiction for original characters, especially Mary Sues.
* [[http://akaichounokoe.deviantart.com/gallery/?q=Toki#/d4m76j0 Toki]] and, in this picture, the artist pointed out in the description that her hair would be even longer.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** When Katara has her hair down, it's almost the same length as when it's in a braid.
** Toph is mostly an aversion, as though the one time we see her with her hair out, it's [[http://dvdscreenshots.avatarspiritmedia.net/215/025.jpg freaking enormous]], she normally keeps it in a tight bun roughly the size [[http://dvdscreenshots.avatarspiritmedia.net/206/273.jpg of the rest of her head.]]
** Azula's hair is also pretty long when unbound.
* Both Jazz Fenton and Paulina from ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' have hair down to their hips, but LiteralGenie Desiree is much more blatant in both length and width.
* [[TheSimpsons Marge Simpson's]] enormous BeehiveHairdo. It's been shown that when she has her hair worn down it's roughly waist length. (Though it varies, one episode briefly showed it as knee length, and that was when her hair was ''falling out'')
* ''KaBlam'''s "The Offbeats" has Repunzil, and June had Rapunzel Hair once in the shorts before she became part of the show.
* Trixie Tang and Princess Mandie on ''TheFairlyOddparents''
* One of the Ugly Princesses from ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'' has Rapunzel Hair... and beard... and mustache... that are prehensile.
* In an episode of ''TotallySpies'', Clover was captured and her hair was grown really long to be used as a wig. Unfortunately, it made her very weak. The other girls even used the hair Rapunzel style.
* Sierra from ''TotalDramaWorldTour'' has hair reaching her butt (and she's the tallest girl), and given how it's braided it should be even longer. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:as of her injury near the end of the season, she's bald now.]]
* Princess Bubblegum and Marceline of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' fame have this, with PB's reaching roughly to her knees while Marceline's goes even farther than that. [[spoiler:Finn as well, though it's gotten shorter in recent appearances.]]
** In the episode "Bad Little Boy", Finn's GenderFlip counterpart Fionna reveals to have this sort of hair.
** Ice King and his GenderFlip counterpart Ice Queen have this hair too.
* ''JimmyTwoShoes'' has Saffi.
* ''ThePowerpuffGirls'': Forget wearing capes, Blossom's [[RedHeadedHero orange locks]] are long enough to '''be''' a cape! It's also long enough to support a highway for toy cars and be styled to look like a rabbit, both at the ''same time''.
* Starfire's hair was shortened for the animated ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', on the other hand, villain Cheshire's hair was lengthened: it seems to fall to about her knees.
* Artemis from ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' has very long blond hair that's usually in a ponytail that reaches her hips. In season 2, she cut her hair to shoulder length.
* [[ActionGirl Megan]] from the classic ''[[MyLittlePonyTVSpecials My]] [[MyLittlePonyTheMovie Little]] [[MyLittlePonyAndFriends Pony]]'' series had hair that was impressively long even when bound in a TomboyishPonytail. Princesses Celestia and Luna from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' have spectacularly long and large manes and tails.
* Calamity Jane from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfCalamityJane''. How she manages to hide her hip-length red locks under that hat is a complete mystery.
* On ''GravityFalls'', Mabel, Wendy and Pacifica all have hair that goes down their waists.
* In ''AngelsFriends'', Raf, Cabiria and Temptel all have this.
* In ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'', the Winx members have flowing hair. In the beginning it used to be at the hips, but then increased to the knees when in a transformation of Enchantix or above, as well as in later seasons. Tecna is the exception, as her hair goes shoulder length at the longest. Of the Trix, Icy and Darcy and long hair as well, especially Darcy as her hair reaches her knees.
* WesternAnimation/BeverlyHillsTeens: Most of the girls aren't far from this trope. Also, in "Fairy Tale Fake Out" (a FairyTaleEpisode), Chester makes Blaze's hair (she is locked in a tower like Rapunzel) grow with some magic formula. It seems like the formula was flawed, though, since unlike normal hair, which can support twenty tons, the new hair couldn't even support the weight of the prince (Troy, that is).
* Princess Whatshername from ''WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim''.
* Abby Archer from ''{{WesternAnimation/Grossology}}'' has an overly large ponytail that goes down to her ankles.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* Taylor Momsen had it as past her [[http://images.sugarscape.com/userfiles/image/APRIL2011/Amy/MomsenHair4.jpg waist at one point]] using hair extensions.
* Australian Dominatrix [[http://pics.wikifeet.com/Chanta-Rose-Feet-445896.jpg Chanta Rose]] has hair down to her waist. She often wears it in a braided ponytail or bun.
* Model [[http://images.fashionmodeldirectory.com/model/000000150697-ruslana_korshunova-fit.jpg Ruslana Korshunova]] was well-known for her [[http://images.fashionmodeldirectory.com/model/000000150752-ruslana_korshunova-fit.jpg incredibly]] [[http://images.fashionmodeldirectory.com/model/000000150741-ruslana_korshunova-fit.jpg long]] hair.
* [[http://www.testedich.de/quiz23/picture/pic_1179158222_11.jpg Empress Elisabeth]] ("Sisi/Sissi") of Bavaria. [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/95/Empress_Elisabeth_of_Austria_in_dancing-dress,_1865,_Franz_Xaver_Winterhalter.jpg Her hair was so long]] that it reached her ''feet'' and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empress_Elisabeth_of_Austria#Beauty took several hours to comb and braid]], which she spent reading and writing letters while getting it done. Allegedly, one of her German hairstylists also had hair like that, which allowed her to take an occasional side job as Sisi's BodyDouble. When the empress had a headache (rather common, according to her), her hair was suspended by ribbons from the ceiling to take the weight off.
* The [[http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/the-seven-sutherland-sisters-and-their-37-feet-of-hair/ seven Sutherland sisters]], who traveled as a sideshow act with the Barnum & Bailey Circus, had 37 feet of hair between them, and sparked a fad for long hair in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. (Their father played on their fame to sell patent medicine hair tonic.)
* In the Qing dynasty, all men were required to shave their forehead and wear the rest of their hair in a braid down their back. As this braid was not allowed to be cut, on punishment of death, this resulted in some impressive hair lengths. Females, while not required to wear the braid, were expected to keep their hair long as a sign of propriety; rich women often would wear wigs made of hair sold by poor women to make their hairdos even more elaborate.
* In Heian Era Japan, court nobles – women and men both - wore their hair long and open, the longer, the better, as longer hair meant higher status, especially for women, where long, perfect hair cascading down to the Mo train of the Jûnihitoe was not only common, but highly coveted and desired.
* Actress Patricia Morison was known for her hair, rumored to be 39 inches long.
* According to the Guinness World Records, the longest coif in the world belongs to Xie Qiuping, at 5.6m long.
* ''KillBill'' actress Creator/ChiakiKuriyama typically wears natural long jet-black hair that reaches down to her waist.
* 80's Mexican singer Daniela Romo was very famous for her extremely long dark brown hair, which easily reached down her butt. (She lost it in recent years due to [[IllGirl cancer treatment.]])
* Native Americans often have hair that is at least waist-length, as it is a sign of health and (for men) honor/bravery.

* A lot of the members of the online [[http://www.longhaircommunity.com Long Hair Community]] either have RapunzelHair or aspire to having it and regularly post about it in the forum section.
* Creator/SierraMcCormick has a more realistic version of this. Her hair is nearly to her waist even when braided or curled.
* Cher has had hair long enough to sit on.
* Country singer Crystal Gayle's down-to-the-ground strands are her trademark.
* Male example: Tomi Joutsen, lead singer of the Finnish band Amorphis, has dreadlocks that go down to to his knees.
