* [[Manga/{{Eyeshield21}} Agon Kongo's]] most memorable feature is his very long, very thick, dread-locked hair. Some of his nicknames include "reggae head", "rasta head" "reggae guy" and "fucking dreads".
** His hairstyle choices are probably meant to be seen as a sign of rebelliousness, as his previous haircut was also associated with delinquency (long, wavy bleached blonde hair). His dreads being shaved off could be seen as symbolic of his attitude (slowly) improving.
** Ironically, he's quite obviously NOT a Rastafarian as he attends a very strict, ascetic Buddhist school.

* WordOfGod states that the fur on [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Knuckles the Echidna's]] head are dreadlocks. Knuckles himself is an IneffectualLoner when he's not willingly being TheLancer. He counts due to there being a deep spiritual connection and importance placed on his job as guardian of the Master Emerald, detailed in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' and ''VideoGame/SonicChronicles''.
* [[Franchise/StreetFighter Dee Jay]] hails from Jamaica and is extremely laid-back, always smiling and never letting anything worry him.

* Tom Tanaka of ''LightNovel/Durarara'' has a generally laid back personality and is one of the few people able to keep [[HairTriggerTemper Shizuo]] under control. He also generally comes off as free-spirited but he's a LoanShark by profession, albeit a pretty reasonable and friendly one who mostly uses Shizuo's [[TheDreaded reputation]] as a deterrent to anyone who might try something. His ethnic background isn't explicitly stated in the series, though due to his darker skin tone and MultiethnicName it's speculated that he's partially of African descent.

* [[Literature/SamsonAndDelilah Samson]], the [[SuperStrength inhumanly strong]] OneManArmy from the Bible, is specifically stated to wear his hair in dreadlocks in [[Literature/BookOfJudges Judges 16:13]]. As a Nazirite (sort of an Old Testament proto-monk), he actually combines this trope with DreadlockWarrior.
