Ponytail, seen in 865: Nanobots
First appearance 84: National Language
Known appearances 248

Ponytail is a stick figure character in xkcd. She is distinguished from other characters by her white ponytail hair.


Ponytail doesn't have a recurring name like Megan or Rob (for a few instances of Cueball). But afew times a Ponytail character has a given name in a single comic. For instance she is called Joanna in 322: Pix Plz and Sarah in 84: National Language. However this last comic seems to be about the real-life friend of Randall.


Ponytail was originally mainly a filler character, showing up when two females were needed or when a large group of people are present. But she has become more and more used, also without for instance Megan present in the comic.

In many comics where she has a specific role, she tends to have more educated roles such as in 451: Impostor as an engineer. She seems to be typically less nerdy than Megan.
