** There are reasons why non-Aldmer have different skin tones. Boethiah, the Daedric Prince of deceit, took exception to the "lies" Trinimac, the Aldmer god of war, had been spreading about Lorkhan, the Trickster God. He/She tricked Trinimac, ate him, assumed his form, and the dung he excreted became Malacath, the Daedric Prince of Outcasts. The followers of Boethiah and Trinimac [[{{Squick}} rubbed Boethiah's excrement on themselves]] to change their skins. It was the followers of Boethiah who became the Chimer while the followers of Trinimac became the Orsimer. It should be stated that Malacath himself said that the story of Boethiah eating Trinimac is "far too literal-minded" but this still implies there is some truth to the story. After the Battle of Red Mountain, the Tribunal (the leaders of the Chimer), betrayed an oath to the Daedric Azura the Chimer were cursed to have their skin to turn as black as the ash of the volcanic Red Mountain and their eyes as red as it's fires.

Added DiffLines:

* Largely averted in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series but there are exceptions with the elves or "mer":
** The Aldmer ("First/Elder Folk") and their descendants the Aldmer ("Cultured People/Folk") or High Elves and the Chimer ("People of the North") have golden skin, though the Chimer have a darker shade of gold.
** The title of the Dunmer ("Dark Elves" by non-Dunmer) is partially due to their dark skin as in it's literally shades of black, grey, and even ''blue''.
** The Orsimer ("Pariah Folk"), or Orcs, have green skin ranging in shades of dark to light.
** The Falmer (goblin-esque creatures that live in Dwemer Ruins) have unnaturally pale skin. It's implied that this isn't just due to living underground as their ancestors the Snow Elves already had pale skin.

* In a rare exception to the "only white people are multicolored" rule, Franchise/WonderWoman once dated the Hindu avatar Rama for a while, who is very blue. Other exceptions would be gray-skinned Apocalypse (who, as an ancient Egyptian, would be non-Caucasian) and Skin (Latino), Sunspot (who turns really black when using his power), M's brother Emplate (gray), and possibly Penance (red-skinned).

The Yellow Claw, a now obscure YellowPeril holdover from the 1950s, is always drawn with bright yellow skin; the first Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe notes his skin colour as being very much not a normal Asiatic tone.

* Canonically, there's Blanka's green skin in ''StreetFighter'', as well as Oro's yellow, Necro's bleach white, Gil's blue and red and Seth's gray. While Dhalsim and Urien have more mundane dark skin colors, alternate color schemes like to give them all manner of strange, unnatural skin colors.

** While talking about figures of speech like that, let's look at the colors we use to describe people's skin in modern English: black, white, brown, red, and yellow (though the latter two are regarded as offensive slurs these days). Brown is really the only one that ''accurately'' describes the color of human skin. That we continue to call people "white" and "black" is really just a linguistic quirk, a holdover from when those terms described light and dark in general rather than the extremes of each.

The now-discredited use of "red" for Native Americans and "yellow" for Asians seems to just be because brown and white were taken.
