* Not only is Maya Witherspoon, the Snow White analog in ''[[Literature/ElementalMasters The Serpent's Shadow]]'', a (female) doctor and open suffragette in [[TheEdwardianEra Edwardian London]], but her mother was a "Native" her wellborn army physician father openly married when stationed in India. Of course her late mother's EvilTwin (and to a less homicidal degree Indian society in general) was rather ticked over a pure-blooded Brahmin giving birth to a polluted half-English child.

** ''VideoGame/Persona5'' deconstructs the trope: Ann Tamaki is ethnically Japanese, and was born and raised there, as were here parents, but is subjected to [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer extreme ostracism]] and SlutShaming because of the blonde hair, blue eyes and decidedly "white" facial features she inherited from an American grandparent. Her appearance also attracts the attention of her school's predatory volleyball coach, who uses her best friend's starting position as leverage to force Ann into having sex with him, [[spoiler: and then ''rapes her friend'' when she refuses]].

** ''VideoGame/Persona2'' gives us Lisa Silverman, who is ethnically white but culturally Japanese, having been raised there since birth by a pair of incredibly Japanophile parents. According to a guidebook, said parents are naturalized citizens that immigrated from the United States. Her folks do their darndest to blend in (her mother acts like a stereotypical [[YamatoNadeshiko Japanese lady]] and dropped her birth name for a Japanese one, while her father practices akido and is prickly about his ethnicity), and while Lisa also tries to do the same, [[spoiler:her [[EnemyWithout Shadow]] implies that isn't necessarily what she wants]]. Her parents' love of the country is so immense that her father, a minister of trade, can speak English, but has never spoken or taught it to his daughter.
** ''VideoGame/Persona5'' deconstructs the trope: Ann Tamaki is a blond-haired, blue-eyed girl who was born and grew up in Japan, as did her parents. She only looks the way she does because one of her grandparents was white. But despite that, she's spent her entire life being [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer ostracized by her peers]] and plagued by false rumors about her personality due to her "exotic" appearance.
