This trope can be TruthInTelevision in some Asian countries (though rarely Japan itself), like Pakistan, where dyeing hair red with henna dye is common (Natural redheads in Pakistan--and there are many--usually have light skin). Dark skin with natural red hair is often seen in Oceania, especially Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea. In the West, you're most likely to see it in [[http://www.greenagency.com/talent/jordan-ozerities-30187 biracial people]] with one black parent and one white parent with red or blonde hair.

MixedAncestry; for example, the African American activist UsefulNotes/MalcolmX earned the nickname "Detroit Red" due to the reddish tinge in his hair that he inherited from a Scottish ancestor.

* ''VideoGame/BraveFencerMusashi'' has Gingerelle, an arrogant beauty queen and captain of the Thirstquencher Empire. While not so much the [[GenkiGirl energetic type]], she did have a powerful presence and [[AlphaBitch tended to lord it over]] her little sister most of the time.
* [[PhysicalGod Almalexia]], a non-anime example from ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', has dark ''gold'' skin and red-hair.

* Ellen in older ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' strips ([[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=318 exhibit A]]); now that the other characters aren't so pale, Ellen's skin is not significantly darker ([[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=788 exhibit B]]). Tai, on the other hand, is a more straight (no pun intended) example, [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1398 as seen here]]. Later on it's revealed that [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2361 she dyes her hair]] and she even [[{{Lampshade Hanging}} lampshades]] the improbability of that color hair with her skintone.

Naturally, this includes {{Hard Drinking Party Girl}}s and {{Trickster}}s of both genders. The most common combination with this skin tone is a vibrant and noticeable light color. Red is very popular, associated with all sorts of playful Japanese spirits as well as the kabuki wig, so it's also a common (and deliberately unusual looking) palette choice for [[HadesShaded demons]] and [[CatGirl Cat Girls]]. Red's a popular hair color for [[HeroesWantRedHeads other reasons]] as well, of course.

This trope can be TruthInTelevision in some Asian countries, like Pakistan, where dyeing hair red with henna dye is common. (Natural redheads in Pakistan--and there are many--usually have light skin.) Dark skin with natural red hair is seen in Oceania, especially Vanuatu. In Japan, teenagers will sometimes dye their hair red after bleaching it. This therefore applies to the more tanned characters. In a recent case of ScienceMarchesOn, analysis of human genetics has revealed that red hair in Europeans (which dates to 20,000+ years ago) evolved earlier than light skin (which may have emerged as recently as 6,000 years ago), meaning that all redheads used to be dark-skinned.

* ''Literature/TheSilerianTrilogy'': Like most poor Silerians, Mirabar is dark-skinned, but also had bright red hair as a mark of her favor from their goddess (though most people initially believe this means she's a demon).
