How are these subversions? How is the audience set up to expect that these characters will have Power Hair? "Subverted" does not mean "not an example but I wanted to mention <this work> anyway."

Anime and Manga:

  • Subverted by Black Lagoon's Balalaika, who has the long, flowing hair you usually see on a Damsel.
  • Subverted in Hellsing with Integra, the leader of the Hellsing organization and the leash on world's most powerful vampire, Alucard. Has long straight hair that reaches beyond her shoulders.

Live action TV:
  • Subverted greatly with President Laura Roslin in Battlestar Galactica, whose flowing locks were greatly missed once she lost her hair due to cancer treatments.
