* In ''VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}}'', protagonist Makoto Naegi has this hair. The protagonists of ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' and ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'', [[AmnesiacHero Hajime Hinata]] and Kaede Akamatsu [[spoiler:and [[DecoyProtagonist later]], Shuichi Saihara, who's revealed to have one under his hat]], have it as well. In ''VideoGame/AbsoluteDespairGirls'', Makoto's younger sister Komaru is the main character, and has also developed this hair (despite not having it in the original game, where she made her split-second debut). In addition, [[spoilersTouko Fukawa]], who has been promoted to {{Deuteragonist}}, also gains one as part of a more disheveled appearance. In ''LightNovel/DanganRonpaZero'', Ryoko Otonashi lacks one but Yasuke Matsuda has it, and in ''Manga/KillerKiller,'' Takumi Hijirihara sports it. [[MemeticMutation The fandom often refers to the hairstyle as "Protagonist Hair"]], [[spoiler:and Shuichi’s was likely obscured just to hide his status as the true protagonist, presumably because otherwise his role would have been too obvious]].

''Ahoge''[[note]]Not to be confused with ''{{Eroge}}'', or ''Ahegao'', a similarly risqué concept.[[/note]] (literally ''idiot hair'') refers to the noticeable slim forelock of hair that sticks straight up from a character's head. Originally a hairdresser term for the "stupid hairs" or cowlicks that [[StubbornHair will not comb down]], it later [[MemeticMutation mutated]] into a reflection of a person's intelligence. Thus Idiot Hair suggests that a character is [[TheDitz stupid]], naïve, or [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} strange]]. (This suggestion is usually accurate, but not always--sometimes a serious character just has funny hair.)

** Even non-protagonists aren't safe from the threat of "Protagonist Hair". Ain't that right, [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Ki-bo]]? [[spoiler:It turns out his idiot hair is an antenna that allows the audience of the killing game to control his actions through user polls. And he even fulfills the "Protagonist Hair" shtick when he gets a playable segment in the final trial!]]
** Humorously lampshades and parodied in VisualNovel/NewDanganronpaV3 via a chalkboard Easter egg. At one point, it has Monokuma sporting a ludicrously large one asking “Can I be the protagonist now?” It’s as funny as it sounds.

* In ''Manga/ActAge'', Kei's long, askew strand of hair emphasizes her quirky and slightly naive character, while creating a contrast with her "cool beauty" appearance. It's a family trait too, as both her late mother and her siblings sport a similar one.
