** Sabrina herself traditionally has pale platinum blonde hair in the comics, but the live action TV show gave her golden blonde hair, which later carried over to [[WesternAnimation/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries the animated series]] and was her main color for much of the 90s and 2000s. 2010s comics differ on whether golden blonde or platinum hair. ''ComicBook/ChillingAdventuresOfSabrina'' reconciles the two by showing that Sabrina waa born with blonde hair (like her mother) but it lightened to a near-white shade of platinum blonde due to he being half-witch.

* In the light novels of ''LightNovel/SuzumiyaHaruhi'', Haruhi's hair is black, Yuki's is gray, and Mikuru is a brunette. In the anime, Yuki's hair is grayish-purple, and Mikuru is a redhead. Both ofthese are close enough to the ones they are supposed to have that it could be seen as a simple stylistic choice. Haruhi's hair, however, just full on changed from black to dark brown.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheHardyBoys'':
** Frank Hardy's hair is described as dark and usually drawn as black on the book covers. In the 1970s TV Adaptation ''Series/TheHardyBoysNancyDrewMysteries'', it's inexplicably golden-blonde.
** The eye colors of both brothers also fall into this. In the books, Joe Hardy is blue-eyed. In ''Series/TheHardyBoysNancyDrewMysteries'' Frank has the blue eyes, Joe's hazel, and the show makes a special point of Frank's eye color in several episodes. Not that anyone's complaining, mind...

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', Arya Stark and Jon Snow have brown hair like their father Ned Stark, while Sansa, Bran, Robb and Rickon have auburn hair like their mother Catelyn. In the HBO adaption however, Bran and Rickon have brown hair like their father, and Jon Snow has black hair. Sansa's hair is also lighter than her book counterpart.
** Robb is also has brown hair rather than auburn hair--Richard Madden's natural colour. Same thing happened with his uncle Edmure Tully, who has black hair in the series, which is unusual because the Tully family mostly have red-brown in the books. Catelyn's uncle Brynden also lacks the auburn Tully hair of his book counterpart. (The Blackfish has gone completely grey in the books, but in the show he clearly has dark hair under the grey). Of course, since red-heads are uncommon in RealLife (less than 1% of all people in the world have it), the producers seemed to feel it would be better to cast with practicality and availability, and so made more of the Starks and Tullys dark. Notably, Michelle Fairley and Sophie Turner (Catelyn and Sansa) are both DyeingForYourArt rather than natural red-heads. As for the males, it can be argued that such an option is impractical, particularly since this would require dying their ''beards'' as well in regards to Robb and Edmure--a harder feat than hair. Alternately, the showrunners might have felt it was better to have Robb, Bran and Rickon reflect their father more closely rather than resembling their mother (red hair ''is'' a recessive gene, so to non-book viewers it looks quite natural).
** In the novels, the Baratheons have black hair, but it has been changed to dark brown on the show. Renly Baratheon also has dark eyes instead of light eyes.
** Instead of using the normal black-stag-on-a-yellow-field sigil of his book counterpart, King Renly Baratheon on the series creates a new banner which features a golden stag on a green background--[[InSeriesNickname the King in Highgarden]], indeed. This change reflects the different personality of the TV character, who is essentially a male version of Margaery Tyrell instead of an inferior copy of his brother Robert like he is in the novels. HBO's Renly is ashamed and embarrassed by Robert's neglect and mismanagement of the kingdom, so when the young man decides to claim the Iron Throne, he wants to separate himself as much as possible from his brother's drunken, sloppy image. The new sigil hints to the wealth and power of House Tyrell, and it's analogous to Joffrey's stag-and-lion emblem. Renly is more intelligent on the show than in the books, so he would recognize that it's a smart political move to symbolically acknowledge the importance of his wife's family. The new banner is also a very romantic gesture on Renly's part; he is fulfilling as best as he can Ser Loras Tyrell's (his boyfriend) long-standing wish to see Renly as his "bride" in "green and gold brocade." A male Baratheon can never take on the Tyrell name, but Renly has officially "adorned" himself in his lover's colours.
** Ser Loras Tyrell and his sister Margaery from the novels have brown eyes, but their TV counterparts are blue-eyed. Loras' hair is also dark blonde instead of brown. Moreover, the forest green of the Tyrells' clothing has been replaced with teal on the show. The teal colour gives the characters a softer, gentler look onscreen, emphasizing the "silk" part of the family's SilkHidingSteel philosophy. Michele Clapton elaborates on this chromatic change in the March 28, 2014 issue of ''Entertainment Weekly''.
---> "Usually I would use the sigil colours as a base palette," she says (which for a Tyrell would mean gold and green). But Clapton was careful not to give away the family's motives. "To be too overt would have shown their hand."
*** The one major exception in the first three seasons is Loras' [[http://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/t1.0-9/q71/s720x720/1911884_487967611308295_1658416650_n.jpg green-and-gold sparring outfit]] in "Kissed by Fire." As he is simply practicing his swordplay, there isn't a need for him to disguise the fact that he is a formidable Tyrell warrior.
** Viserion, one of Dany's dragons is described as cream colored in the books, where as on screen, he is a more brownish-yellow color.
** The Lannisters have bright gold curls in the books but except for natural blond Charles Dance have much straighter, dirty blond hair in the show to cope with the actors' natural dark hair. This is particularly noticeable whenever Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) or Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime) grow any facial hair because it remains undyed.
** The Targaryens of the book have very striking MysticalSilverHair and Supernatural PurpleEyes as opposed to the platinum blond hair and natural eyes of the show. WordOfGod is that the purple contact lenses interfered with the actors' performances.
** Doreah is silver-blond in the books, dark-haired in the show.
** While Talisa herself is a CanonForeigner, the books are clear that Volantene noblewomen like her are pale and silver-haired like Daenerys rather than olive-skinned and dark-haired like OonaChaplin.
** Asha Greyjoy has black hair and dark eyes in the books. Yara has mid-brown hair and blue eyes in the show.
** Daario does not have the garish blue hair or GoldTooth described in the books.
** In the books, Ghiscari nobles sculpt and dye their hair into outrageous shapes and colours. To avoid the great potential for narm, the series omits this detail and associated points like Daenerys' supporters shaving off said hair.
** Daenerys' vision of her stillborn son is one of a bronze-skinned man with silver hair in the books but a brown-haired white baby in the show.
** The Bolton banner has a black or dark blue field instead of a pink one and their wardrobe is likewise darkened, no doubt to avoid the potential {{narm}} of RealMenWearPink.
** The White Walkers wear black armour very similar to that of the Night's Watch instead of the reflective crystalline armour described in the books.
** Rainbows are a common motif of the Faith of the Seven and a symbol of piety in the books because of their seven colours, but this is entirely absent from the show, likely because their strong LGBT association would inevitably create entirely different implications, especially in the case of a homosexual character like Renly being guarded by a Rainbow Guard in rainbow cloaks.
