* ''Film/XMen'': Charles Xavier's outward appearance is intertwined with his psyche across the First Class trilogy. His delicate, baby-face features correlate with his androgynous, starry-eyed disposition. His innate empathy is augmented by his telepathy, which makes him the ultimate Sensitive Guy--you only have to glance at him in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' and ''Film/XMenApocalypse'' to know that this is his most distinctive quality. As for ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', his past self's optimism is shattered, so his scruffiness, which conceals his boyish looks, mirrors his cynicism.

* In ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' the show that provides source material for ''Power Rangers,'' if a season has a RedHeadedHero, expect him to be a red ranger. There have been two, the Red Rangers of ''Series/JukenSentaiGekiranger'' and ''Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger,'' with two non-Red Rangers whose hair was more reddish-brown, the Green Ranger of ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger'' and the Black Ranger of ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger.'' (''Power Rangers'' averts this, as the only two redheads they've had were a Yellow and White Ranger.)

* The "fire-powered" character with the stand-up two-tone hair, etc. described in the Trope blurb is a perfect description of Hotstreak from ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'' (except that he's a villain, not a hero).

To top it off, he already had his hair dyed like that before he got his powers.

* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'': While it's not natural, Usagi Tsukino and (to an even greater degree) her daughter Chibiusa wear their hair in a way to look like [[MoonRabbit rabbit ears]]. Likewise, Michiru's hair looks like ocean waves, while Makoto's original school uniform and hairstyle are meant to evoke a Delinquent which she is rumored to be (But not actually, subverting the trope).

** In ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', it's noted that looking like a piglet having a bright idea and sounding like a yappy gog doesn't ''necessarily'' mean Horsefry's an obnoxious UpperClassTwit, in much the same way as wearing red robes and a wig and sitting at the front of the courtroom doesn't necessarily mean someone's a judge.

** Particularly bad in [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers the original animated series]] and ''[[TransformersCybertron Cybertron]]'', where (in a bizarre variation on MorphicResonance) characters' bodies include [[KibblesAndBits vehicle mode parts]] for vehicles they ''don't actually turn into yet'', making it seem like quite a coincidence that the hood of a Lamborghini Countach just ''happens'' to look exactly like Sideswipe's chest.

This doesn't count for characters who get their appearance ''from'' who they are. [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Two-Face and the Joker]] don't count because their appearances ''caused'' their insanity, and vice-versa. The Penguin got his nickname ''from'' his combination of upper crust background, long nose, pot belly, and penchant for tuxedos. Likewise in terms of powers, [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Colossus]] is a [[ChromeChampion man made of steel]], so being super strong and tough like steel should be logical. Those with VoluntaryShapeshifting powers are also excluded. They have actual mental control over their appearance, so it makes sense it would match up.

* Someone in ''Literature/{{Fahrenheit 451}}'' was GenreSavvy. At one point the protagonist takes a look around at his fellow firemen and realizes that it can't be coincidence that they are all grim, stoic-looking men with thick, carbon-black hair.

** A lot of Devil Fruit users leave the impression that they are designed around the powers they receive from eating the eponymous fruits. The most jarring has to be the user of the Moku Moku no Mi (Smoke-Smoke Fruit), who is a CigarChomper named, well, '''Smoker'''.
