Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Amy mega pigtails 5771.jpg

Basically a pair of huge pigtails on a girl, that are much larger than possible in Real Life, at least not without loads of hair gel. The minimum hair size is both tails combined must be at least the size of the girl's head.

There can be many reasons for this, although the most common are either to make the pigtails clear even in long shots, or just plain Rule of Cute.

Quite often these pigtails have the hair in a spiral, which overlaps with Regal Ringlets. However, girls with Mega Twintails are not necessarily of high station. It is more of a compromise halfway between the "girlyness" of Regal Ringlets and "tomboyishness" of Girlish Pigtails, both in looks and in personality.

Not to be confused with just having long hair in pigtails (like Hatsune Miku, Ruri, or Cure Melody).

A Sub-Trope of Anime Hair, and Bigger Is Better.

Compare Girlish Pigtails, Eighties Hair, Giant Poofy Sleeves, Princess Curls.
