* ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'': Downplayed. Alice Nakiri is an albino, and consistently portrayed with alabaster skin, silver hair and red eyes. While she has a major case of RichBitch syndrome, she is never actively malicious, merely extremely arrogant and cutthroat competitive, traits which she shares with the entire cast.

This trope has been an incredibly damaging stereotype in places such as medieval Europe and present-day Africa, where albinos may be [[BurnTheWitch harassed, attacked, or even murdered under the belief that they are witches]]. Also in Africa, [[HumanResources body parts from albinistic humans]] are sold for use in magical rituals, and it's believed that sex with an albino woman will cure someone of HIV, leading to rape.

A common [[RedRightHand distinguishing mark]] to show that a character is evil is to make the character an albino. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albinism Albinism]] is a condition that affects the production of melanin, causing the body and hair of the subject to be white. [[UndeathlyPallor Stark white skin]] and [[WhiteHairBlackHeart white hair]] are both commonly used as indicators of villainy in their own right, so albinism provides a convenient scientific excuse to make a villain look evil.

Because red eyes are a side-effect of some types of albinism, including rare types in humans, many evil albinos also have [[RedEyesTakeWarning scary red eyes]] that provide a contrast to their otherwise white features.

This trope has been an incredibly damaging stereotype in places such as Nigeria, where people who are albino are to this day harrassed, attacked, or even murdered under the myth that they are witches. Their [[{{Squick}} body parts]] are sold for use in magical rituals, and it's believed that sex with an albino woman will cure someone of HIV, leading to rape.
