** [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shokugeki_akira.jpg Hayama Akira]] also fits this to a degree, although his hair is actually silvery-white rather than blonde, but the trope still applies. Also note his bright green eyes.

* Xehanort, Ansem Seeker of Darkness, and Xemnas of ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' all sport a signature look of dark skin, silver hair and golden eyes.

* Proof that this trope is OlderThanYouThink, ''Literature/RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms'' (which draws more from folk legends than actual history) describes Zhuge Liang's wife Huang Yueying as dark-skinned and pale-haired--[[UnbuiltTrope and thus, by Chinese beauty standards, ugly as sin]].

Cousin of the DarkSkinnedRedhead, opposite of RavenHairIvorySkin and the EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette. If the series is matching HairColors to personalities, the Dark-Skinned Blond is often a DumbBlonde if female (whereas the DarkSkinnedRedhead is often hotheaded). The trope may have some relation to the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ganguro Ganguro]] fashion trend that took over Japan for part of TheNineties, consisting of bleached hair and an artificial tan. There are also many Dark-Skinned Blond males, though there aren't really any discernible stereotypes associated with them in Japanese works, except that bleached hair is often seen as a sign of delinquency.

** Many of the Gorons in the series have fair hair (or rather, rock formations that they carve into "haircuts") in addition to having dark yellowish-brown skin.

** Many of the Gorons in the series have fair hair (or rather, rock formations that they carve into "haircuts") in addition to having dark yellowish-brown skin. This is especially true in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', where you encounter Gorons with nearly pitch-black skin but the same light hair as the others.

* There's an ''entire culture'' of characters with dark skin and fair hair in ''SuikodenTierkreis'': the Magedom of Janam. Plotting the personalities and appearances of [[ProperLady Manaril]], [[TheWisePrince Shams]], [[KnightInShiningArmor Asad]], and sundry supported characters between the Dark-Skinned Blond and the DarkSkinnedRedhead is an exercise left to the reader, but the end result is undeniable: Janam and its swarthy, light-haired natives seem downright [[IncrediblyLamePun ''otherworldly'']].

The trope also shows up with some frequency in Western works (either animated or live action), where it will either take the form of a very tan-skinned blond or a non light skinned person with bleached hair. These characters will often play the role of either TheDitz (often a ValleyGirl) or the JerkJock; in fact, the "arrogant, tanned, blond villain" has been a stock character in ProfessionalWrestling almost from its inception (see below). More benign examples may appear as {{Surfer Dude}}s since you can easily acquire a tan from extended exposure to the sun on the beach.

* Adrien, the titular trio's hairstylist (who's also an undercover superspy) in Nickelodeon's ''WesternAnimation/GrooveSquad'', looks African-American but has blonde hair, blonde eyebrows and blonde facial hair--however, considering his occupation, it's also quite possible that his hair is dyed blonde.
