Hair Whip (sometimes called Ponytail Whip or Hair Slap) is Shantae's trademark move and her main attack in the series. Shantae can use her long purple ponytail hair as a weapon, cracking it like a whip by shaking her head. It was revealed in Shantae: Risky's Revenge that this skill is not a by-product of her genie half from her mother side, as she is able to use this ability after her powers are removed. It's possible that this ability came from from her father's side, or that it may be Shantae's own magic that is not tied to her genie side's magic. As Nega-Shantae seemingly lacks this ability, it is safe to assume it could be one of the two.
