* ''Literature/AnneOfGreenGables''. Justified with Anne Shirley, whose temper was at its fieriest when she was teased about her red hair (being one of the few characters whose fire is connected to their coloring). She chewed out the neighborhood busybody and also responded to being called "Carrots" by breaking her slate over a schoolmate's head. Nobody ever teased her about her red hair again, after the social snubbing Gilbert got for five or so years. Ironically, they end up marrying. [[note]] It's ironic for Anne. That was Gilbert's goal [[LoveAtFirstPunch since the beginning]]. [[/note]] Anne never quite gets over her dislike of her red hair. She didn't even like it when her ''children'' inherited it. When Jem is born and the nurse tells her his hair will be red, Gilbert reports to Marilla that "Anne is furious with her, and I'm tickled to death!"

* ''Literature/WarriorCats''. Squirrelflight is the most notable example. She's been explicitly compared to fire on multiple occasions, and has the feisty, stubborn personality to show for it. However, she eventually developed into a calmer and more mature adult. There's also Red, who defies her father's wishes to pursue a romance with her [[StarCrossedLovers Star-Crossed Lover]].

* Ygritte, a wildling, from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. All redheads are believed to be "kissed by fire" in the wildling culture and have a reputation for spirit. Averted in Westeros proper, where red hair is associated with the more genteel Tullys. Rickon Stark, however, inherited the Tully red hair and is the most expressive of his siblings, although this may be due to his youth.

Tullys; however, of the Tullys we meet most of them turn out to be quite HotBlooded - particularly Catelyn Tully[=/=]Stark, whose ProperLady demeanour conceals a raging temper that tends to flare up at moments of crisis. Rickon Stark, however, inherited the Tully red hair and is the most expressive aggressive of his siblings, although this may be due to his youth. Robb Stark also has the red hair and quite a temper. This trope is however firmly averted in the case of their sister [[TheIngenue Sansa]].

* ''Literature/{{Abominable}}''. Stephanie mentions the redhead [[PlayingWithFire Finn's]] hot temper right off the bat, right before we get to see his response to [[TheHunter Timothy]] trying to pick a fight with him. He [[FlashStep flash steps]] right up to Timothy, delivers a quick BadassBoast that doubles as a death threat, calls the grown man an [[OlderThanTheyLook insolent child]] and then tells the guy to get out of his sight.

* Both Aleksander and Lydia of Creator/CarolBerg's ''Literature/RaiKirah'' series, though unlike Aleksander Lydia seems to generally limit herself to words and (carefully aimed) thrown furniture, rather than physical torture and death threats (and not only threats).
