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 despite the peacock flared train being a feature of male peafowl]] in RealLife[[note]]females, called peahens, can flare out their tail feathers, but it's not for mating, and it's nowhere nearly as grand as the males[[/note]], 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.

'''Note these do not require the feathers to be peacock feathers, only that they be arranged in a fantail. Futhermore simply wearing peacock feathers is not an example, as that's TheSameButMoreSpecific of FluffyFashionFeathers.'''

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