* There's still a good deal of debate as to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_Egyptian_race_controversy what the ancient Egyptians looked like]]. The general consensus is that it was a mix of multiple groups and changed constantly over the millennia as waves of immigrants moved to the area from all over the Middle East and North Africa; the main opposing view is that they were black from founding to Cleopatra (somehow).

An ambiguously brown character is one with a skin tone that's definitely ''not'' Northern European, but it's not entirely clear what ethnicity they ''are'' supposed to be. It's used to avoid MonochromeCasting, but for some characters, you have no clue what ethnicity or race they are just by looking at them. Are they a [[ButNotTooBlack light-skinned black person]]? [[LatinoIsBrown Latin American]]? UsefulNotes/{{Native American|s}}? UsefulNotes/{{Romani}}? Mediterranean? Arab? South or Southeast Asian? Polynesian? {{Mixed|Ancestry}}? Their facial features don't correspond to any particular race either, so we don't know. They're just...brown.

* Jonny 2x4 and Rolf from ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'', though Jonny might be black. Jonny is implied to be black as twice he's been hown to have a curly brown afro when his hair is long, and his short cut is pretty popular with black boys. Rolf is heavily in the air though.

* More a voice example, since the character in question is a bright red box of fries, but episode of ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' has Master Shake wondering if Frylock is supposed to be black ("You ''sound'' black.") In the live-action episode, the actor playing Frylock ''was'' black, if that solves anything.
