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), and to a lesser extent in the Middle East (see UsefulNotes/RamsesII and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abd_al-Rahman_I Abd al-Rahman I]]). 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.

* ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'': Evolution gives us [[WrenchWench Holly Chapman]], who fits. The tan part, according to her profile, is from living in the desert for most of her life, while the red hair comes from a habit of dying it and it just so happened that she was abducted while it was red.

* Kougaiji from ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'' is a [[NobleDemon noble bad guy]] and seems to deliberately be in color contrast to his [[EvilOverlord Evil Empress]] stepmother, Gyokomen Koshu (who is pale skinned with green hair). Possibly to emphasize that their personalities are complete opposites - Kougaiji is devoted to his nakama, while Koshu is prone to killing her followers on a whim. Rather than having a fiery personality, he's matched to the element and uses mostly [[ElementalPowers fire attacks]].
