* ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' has gold/orange Starfire, red Kid Devil, and green Beast Boy and Miss Martian.
** Of course, [[FantasyKitchenSink both Starfire and Miss Martian are aliens, Beast]] [[JustifiedTrope Boy is a mutant, and Kid Devil was turned into a demon]].

* The Wicked Witch of the West in ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' is green. It's unknown what color her sister was but the only other witch, Glinda the Good Witch, has a normal skin tone.



* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': Party member Ann Tamaki's GuardianEntity, who is styled after the fictional European smuggler {{Theatre/Carmen}}, has red skin.



* ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' features a lot of blue and purple characters. It interestingly averts the "race" clause of this {{trope}}--it features a green black girl and a bright lavender Spanish man.
** Chops is a Black Canadian with red skin and green hair, though, and Milla Vodello is a Brazilian whose skin and hair are actually fairly realistic, if a little dark in the skin.
*** Blue skin also tends to mean "bad news": Both of the {{Final Boss}}es, along with Dr. Loboto and local bully Bobby Zilch, are colored blue, which leads to some EpilepticTrees of LukeIAmYourFather.

* [[VideoGame/LegacyOfKain Nosgoth's]] [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]] start off as pretty standard pale, bloodless looking folks, but as they get older they tend to display a large range of color, including bright green (Vorador), yellow-green (Kain), and purple-ish grey (Umah). Then there's Raziel, who while not having ''skin'', has dark-blue muscle tissue for some reason. It's also worth noting that the [[spoiler:original Vampire race had light blue skin]].

* ''VideoGame/TheSims2''. Every monstrous version of a sim has a different skin color. For example, alien hybrids are green, as are evil witches and plantsims (dark green and pale green with vines), vampires turn a shade pale, zombies become a greenish blue, werewolves are brown. Good witches don't change color, but apparently have glitter embedded into their skin for some reason.
** Not to mention the endless mods you can download from the 'net which can give you just about any skin color you desire, up to and including rainbow.
* ''VideoGame/TheSims3'' abolished the monsters (for now, anyway), but allows you to have exotic skintones right off the bat. In addition to normal skintones, there's also red, blue, and green. Plus, you can adjust it to any shade you wish. You can also set their hair or eye color to anything you wish and it will pass to their children. A man with blonde hair and a woman with black can have a child that has black hair with purple tips.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. They're ''yellow'', and the trope applies only to characters that are supposed to be Caucasian or Asian. The show creators said this was so people who were channel-flipping would stop to see if it was something wrong with their TV. The "Caucasian" characters can be called either white or yellow. Meanwhile, Southwest Asians (Arabs and Indo-Aryans) tend to be rendered "white" (which is to say, "yellow") or "Mexican brown". South Asians such as Apu Nahasapeemapetilon and Southeast Asians such as the Thai restaurant owner will be "reddish-brown" (like Native Americans). Chinese characters tend to be "white" ("yellow"), while Japanese characters are depicted either as icy pale (as if they were all wearing geisha or kabuki makeup) or "white" ("yellow"). This is made even more confusing by the fact that the show's two most prominent Latino characters, Dr. Nick Riviera and Bumblebee Man, are yellow and brown, respectively.
** Dr. Nick and the Bumblebee Man being both Latino and differently colored is TruthInTelevision, there's no such thing as a "Latino coloration".

In TheTag of the GrandFinale, he's about to tell said story when the ''series'' [[TheUnreveal cuts out]]. "I remember it was a Tuesday-" *click*.

* Majority of the cast of ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' has normal skin color, but the one {{justified|Trope}} exception is [[ColdSniper Widowmaker]]. She's undergone severe biological modifications, including slowing down her blood circulation, which resulted in her having light purple skin.

** The Beastmen of Morgal in ''[[GoldenSunDarkDawn Dark Dawn]]'' also tend to get pretty outrageous fur colors, especially since they're supposed to be... well, animal-people. The band alone contains a bubblegum-pink CatGirl, a teal green fox, and a dark blue wolf. The king of Morgal is also blue-furred and ''has brown hair''. Rather disconcerting. [[spoiler: After the firing of the Apollo Lens, everyone left in Morgal apparently has gold fur now, bar Sveta who wasn't there during the firing.]]

* Actually justified in the ''Fanfic/OversaturatedWorld'' by the existence of chromelanin, a form of melanin that apparently reacts to background magic by reflecting and absorbing specific wavelengths of light. Supplementary materials reveal that the changeling equivalents have learned how to manipulate their chromelanin, allowing them to change skin and hair color, and go so far as to explain Applejack's unusually pale skin tone (read: Caucasian) is the result of her using soap with a specific chemical when she was younger that washed the chromelanin out.

* Ed from ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' has yellow skin, making him the only character on the show with abnormal skin color. This, of course, is probably due to his poor hygiene since he has an abnormal fear of cleanse products and his sister Sarah has normal human skin color.
