Compare HeroesWantRedheads, DarkSkinnedRedhead, EvilRedhead, RoseHairedSweetie, RedHeadedStepchild, RedheadsAreUncool, and RedHeadedHero. In anime, could be a ShanaClone. If you have a blonde, a brunette, and a redhead in close proximity (i.e. in the main cast), it's BlondeBrunetteRedhead. Contrast ShyBlueHairedGirl for RedOniBlueOni and EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette for the realistic opposite hair color and personality.

* Kevan, the Earl of Io from ''VisualNovel/{{Long Live The Queen}}''. His character portrait has a perpetual scowl and he's out for blood in both of his in-game appearances.

[[spoiler:Akiha's hair is normally a severe black, as befitting an {{ojou}}, but it TurnsRed when she consciously or unconsciously calls upon her demonic blood to power up.

She's still in control until the point that [[RedEyesTakeWarning her eyes turn red]] too, which is the sign that she's gone insane.]]
** Akiha once claimed that the redness was her "true" hair color, [[spoiler:but only in the sense that her "true" nature was demonic -- she was being rather negative at the time. Her cousin, Kouma, has more demon blood than she does and still normally has black hair, and he's not the kind of guy who would bother with disguises.]]

[[folder:Anime And Manga]]
* Anne Shirley in the anime version of ''Literature/AnneOfGreenGables'', who, in turn, is based on Anne Shirley in the novel series ''Literature/AnneOfGreenGables'', mentioned in the literature section below.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Renji and Jinta are both as HotBlooded as they come and have the scarlet hair to match.
* [[MoreDakka Heavy weapons specialist]] and bazooka aficionado [[SmallGirlBigGun Koume Sawaguchi]] from ''Manga/BlueSeed''. She even had an InSeriesNickname - "The Hurricane" - from her time in the Japanese Self-Defense Force, where she worked before she was discharged due to insubordination and transferred to the TAC.
* ''Anime/BrainPowerd'''s Hime Utsumiya is not quite as fiery as other examples listed above, but she still has an outgoing personality (and [[{{Tsundere}} won't hesitate]] [[SlapSlapKiss to call out Yuu]] when necessary) and is [[MartialPacifist an excellent fighter despite her preference for diplomacy]].
* Kallen Stadtfeld from ''Anime/CodeGeass''. In fact, ''everything'' about her is red, from her rebel headband to her mecha - even the outfits she wears are associated with the color red.
* Satella from ''Manga/ChronoCrusade'', a {{tsundere}} and "jewel witch".
* The titular character from ''Anime/CuteyHoney''. No matter what hair colour she has, she's still very fiery.
* [[TheChick Sara]] [[TheLancer Yuki]] of ''Anime/{{Dancougar}}'' has literal red hair and matches [[TheHero Fujiwara Shinobu]] in [[HotBlood spirit]].
* Kotori from ''LightNovel/DateALive'' fits, being [[SplitPersonality both]] [[GenkiGirl highly energetic and passionate]] as Shidou's sister, and having a temper as the Commmander. [[spoiler: We find out she has [[PlayingWithFire fire powers]] later also.]]
* Rika Nonaka from ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' started as an [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Arrogant Kung Fu Girl]], and through all the series she remained as a Tomboy ActionGirl always willing to fight.
* ''LightNovel/DirtyPair'' has Kei, who makes up the {{tomboy}} half of the LovelyAngels and is known for her hair-trigger temper and her itchier trigger finger.
* Terrence, the hero of ''Manga/{{Dreamland}}'', subverts this: he is a redhead and has fiery powers, but is nonchalant and not really eager to fight. [[{{Jerkass}} Eve]], however, plays the trope straight.
* Lucy from ''Manga/ElfenLied'' is a [[AxCrazy homicidally]] FieryRedhead (or more specifically, hot pink head). She could also be counted as an EvilRedhead.
* ''Anime/ElHazardTheMagnificentWorld'': As the great Fire Priestess of Mt. Moldune, [[AmbiguouslyBrown Shayla Shayla]] is a literal example, whose powers intensify, to match her disposition. Meaning, the angrier, or more excited she becomes during a fight, the brighter ''and hotter'' her flames '''''BURN.'''''
* From ''Manga/FairyTail'', definitely Erza, and Natsu too if you count pink.
** Flare Corona is a literal FieryRedhead--her magic not only manipulates her hair, [[FlamingHair it ignites it.]]
* ''VideoGame/FatalFury'': Mai is usually [[{{subverted}} a subversion]]. But in the second film and TheMovie, she's portrayed as outgoing and outspoken, and has [[PlayingWithFire fire based]] attacks to top it off. Though her actual fighting ability tends to [[{{Chickification}} leave a lot to be desired.]] However, in the [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters games themselves]], she usually has either brown, or black hair (with purple highlights), but her cheerful, combative personality is the same ''and'' she's a certified ActionGirl.
* Kyo Sohma from ''Manga/FruitsBasket''. [[SpearCounterpart He may be male]], but he practically ''is'' this trope.
* Nami from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'', who encompasses most of the cliches that go with it. Hot tempered, passionate about what she does, outgoing, and fiery...the only thing is that, she's not ''nearly'' as violent as {{Tsundere}} [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair Kaname]] and, more often than not, actually ''tries'' to be gentle and nice around Sousuke, the guy she likes.
** That might have something to do with the fact that, in the original novels, she ''doesn't'' have red hair -- her hair is described as "brown and unkempt". The red version was strictly the illustrator's fault. Then again, in the novels, Kaname doesn't have blue hair, either...
* ''Manga/GugureKokkurisan'''s Jimeko sports orange hair and is a tsundere.
* Averted with Mikuru from ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', who is probably the meekest, most timid member of the main cast and definitely a contrast to the fiery brunette main character.
* Leccee from ''Anime/HeavyMetalLGaim'' was a quite temperamental redhead, especially when Kyao or someone else -[[CatFight coughAmucough]]- got her annoyed.
* Rias Gremory of ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'': She's actually a very passionate and friendly girl. It's when she's get mad ([[ClingyJealousGirl and it normally concerns]] [[LoveInterest Issei]]) that you have to watch out for her.
* Ayano Kannagi from ''LightNovel/KazeNoStigma'' is a red-haired fire magic user.
* Admiral Bittenfeld from ''Anime/LegendOfGalacticHeroes'' and Alliance soldier Katerose von Kreutzer. Averted with Admiral Kircheis, a fellow redhead.
* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' has Vita, Teana, Agito, and Nove, who are all redheads with short fuses. For an extra kick, Agito is a literal fire elemental.
** Nove's sister, Wendi, also has red hair. Unlike the other examples, she's [[GenkiGirl quite cheerful]].
* Although Hikaru Shidou of ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'' is normally a friendly GenkiGirl, she is also very HotBlooded and gets ''mad'' when someone or something hurts her friends. Fittingly, her ElementalPowers are all about fire.
* Asuna of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''. The series also has Anya, who's both a [[PlayingWithFire fire-user]] and very feisty.
* Mai Tokiha of ''Anime/MaiHime'' is a subversion: she's a redhead with fire-based powers and presented as an example of this trope in the first episode with her violent outbursts at Yuuichi, but after that, she's shown to be [[CoolBigSis compassionate and caring]] and remains that way until things go ''really'' bad for her and everyone else.
** The manga plays it a bit straighter, giving Mai more of a loose temper that her anime counterpart, kept under better control. Both versions were played as "gutsy" and "passionate", which could fall under the redhead stereotype.
* ''Manga/MakenKi'': Minori is another literal example, who's Maken gives her [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c042/22.html the "firepower"]] to match her hair color and disposition. The last thing anyone wants is piss her off. [[BadassGrandpa Ouken Yamato]] can attest to that [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c043/16.html better than anyone.]]
* Both of the Grant brothers in ''Manga/MarmaladeBoy'', but specially [[LovableJock Brian]]. Michael is more of a {{Keet}}.
* ''Master of Mosquiton'': Inaho, is a textbook short-tempered [[JerkassWithAHeartOfGold bossy]] {{tsundere}} example, who drags the hapless vampire all over the globe with her, in search of the O-part to gain eternal youth. But she's not as bad as she first seems, as several episodes show that she isn't simply doing it vanity's sake. The reason she wants eternal youth so badly, is because she's in love with Mosquiton and wants to be together with him, for all time.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'''s [[spoiler:mother]], Kushina, was one of these, though she mellowed (slightly) with age. She was nicknamed "the Bloody Habanero[=/=]the Red Hot-blooded Habanero" because her face resembled a tomato...and because she beat the pulp out of every person that called her "Tomatohead". And sometimes, her hair is floating and has the ''form'' of fire.
** Tayuya of the Sound Five. It's hard for her to go a scene without insulting someone.
** Karin is a more current example. [[MoodSwinger Sometimes]].
** Sakura, even though, technically, she has [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair hot pink hair]]. Then again, she ''does'' always ''dress'' in red.
** [[DarkSkinnedRedhead Karui]] seemed kind of hotheaded when she was beating the crap out of the titular character.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': Asuka Langley Soryu is a HotBlooded, hot-tempered redhead. Why else is she the picture on the main page?
* Mana the tomboy in ''Anime/OnegaiMyMelody'': a martial arts expert who is not adverse to using her kicks.
* Nami from ''Manga/OnePiece''. Even her punches are emotionally charged.
** Boa Marigold is just a shade lighter than red, but she combines PrehensileHair and InfernalRetaliation.
** We also have Eustass "Captain" Kidd, a sociopath who would also qualify for EvilRedhead.
* ''Anime/PhantomQuestCorp'': {{Downplayed}} with Ayaka. She's typically easygoing and [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl somewhat irresponsible]], offset by having [[HairTriggerTemper a short fuse]] and volatile temper.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': Misty played the trope straight in the anime, often by griping at Ash for the damage to her bike, or simply chewing him out [[WhatAnIdiot for his general lack of common sense.]]
** Flannery, on the other hand, does use Fire-types. Both typecasting and hotheadedness worked to her detriment in the [[Manga/PokemonSpecial manga]] back at Mt. Chimney, but she puts up a fight while stalling Kyogre later on.
-->''I'm not afraid of you! Just come and face me... '''Sapphire!'''''
** Jessie, the most {{Badass}} member of the Team Rocket trio.
** Zoey qualifies delightfully.
* Himeno from ''{{Pretear}}'', another Junichi Sato MagicalGirl anime, is a firey RedHeadedHero as well.
* Seira Morimura from ''Anime/PrincessNine''. Fits since she is hot-tempered.
* Ahiru from ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' isn't very strong in terms of combat, but she otherwise fits the description perfectly. (And she ''does'' catch the local {{Jerkass}} off guard once).
* The titular character from ''Anime/ProjectAKo''.
* [[SelfDemonstrating/KyokoSakura Kyouko]] from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. While an {{Expy}} of the trope image Asuka in terms of personality and color scheme, her hair is more of a deep maroon than Asuka's more coppery tone.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' sort of has the titular character. As a teenager who was raised his entire life to fight and win in martial arts duels, Ranma Saotome has the general [[ArrogantKungFuGuy hot-headed]], [[NobodyCallsMeChicken impulsive]], passionate personality to fit into this trope. However, in his normal form, he's a black-haired ''boy''. Thanks to [[GenderBender Jusenkyo]] and an AdaptationDyeJob, he can gain the right sex and hair color and loses none of the attitude that lets him qualify.
* Also subverted by pacifist Kenshin from ''Manga/RurouniKenshin''.
* In ''AudioPlay/SaintBeast'', Maya has a tendency to throw tantrums when things don't go his way.
* Lirin of ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'' definitely qualifies. While most of her behavior is more like "annoying", she has a hair-trigger temper and will scream at or drop boulders on people who annoy her.
* [[LargeHam Nobunaga]] of ''Anime/SengokuOtome'' was told to squeeze a pipe to calm her down whenever she became frustrated. She does this, but it doesn't stop her from threatening ghosts who aren't scared of her stories.
* Shana, the Flame-Haired, Fire-Eyed demon huntress from ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana'', though she's actually a brunette when she's not [[PowerDyesYourHair using her powers]].
* Tiara, the heroine of ''Anime/ShamanicPrincess'', is a very powerful FullContactMagic user with a penchant for {{slasher smile}}s and [[TauntButton taunting]] her opponents. It's a good thing she's up against AntiMagic users and [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm nigh-incomprehensible gods]], or the story would be over really quick.
* ''LightNovel/ShonenOnmyouji'' has this in the shikigami Guren/Toada as well as Takeshi.
* Kiddy Phenil of ''Manga/SilentMobius'', but only in the TV series. Her hair is green in every other version.
* Kyouko Mogami from ''Manga/SkipBeat'', even if, in reality, her hair is black. After her ImportantHaircut, she turns out to be [[HotBlooded extremely fiery]].
* Lina Inverse from ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}''. Bonus points because she has a tendency to make everything go into flames when she's really pissed off.
** It doesn't take much to piss her off either. She once let off a fireball in restaraunt because a fight broke out and her food got spilled.She had to be physically stopped from using one of the most powerful spells out there, called the Dragon Slave, on one of her friends because she wouldn't go back to her employer pretending Lina beat her.
* Subverted in ''Anime/SoltyRei'' with Accela, who is very shy and timid (at least, until she goes LaughingMad in the last few episodes).
* ''Anime/SonicX'''s incarnation of Knuckles.
* Kurisu from ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate''.
* The ''Anime/StrikeWitches'' canon has at least one in Charlotte Yeager, the 501st Joint Fighter Wing's resident {{large ham}} and {{lightning bruiser}}.
* Chocolat from ''Manga/SugarSugarRune''
* Vixen from ''Manga/TheVoynichHotel'' tries not to be this. She fails miserably and hilariously.
* ''LightNovel/TrinityBlood'': Astaroth Aslan ''used'' to be a redhead when she was young (a traumatic event turned it gray/white, all but a streak). Esther Blanchett also fits, especially in the manga. She has more a grounded personality in the novels.
* Princess Rubina from ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' -one of the ''Anime/MazingerZ'' sequels could be quite the spitfire when she was angry. She was the only dared to call the BigBad out.
* Angel Salvia from ''Manga/WeddingPeach'', although green-haired Angel Daisy is also pretty fiery as well.
* Masane Amaha from ''Anime/{{Witchblade}}'' is this post-TransformationSequence.
* ''Manga/TheWorldIsStillBeautiful'' has the female protagonist Nike who has orange hair and a hot-tempered and strong-willed personality.
* Another literal example is Rin from ''Anime/YesPrecure5''. Her hair even turns into a flame-esque style after her transformation.
* Nakiami from ''Anime/XamdLostMemories'' is a subversion. She has red hair, but is taciturn and shows little to no interest in romance. She is an undeniable {{Badass}}, though...

As a teenager who was raised his entire life to fight and win in martial arts duels, Ranma Saotome has the general [[ArrogantKungFuGuy hot-headed]], [[NobodyCallsMeChicken impulsive]], passionate personality to fit into this trope. However, in his normal form, he's a black-haired ''boy''. Thanks to [[GenderBender Jusenkyo]] and an AdaptationDyeJob, he can gain the right sex and hair color and loses none of the attitude that lets him qualify.
* Also subverted by pacifist Kenshin from ''Manga/RurouniKenshin''.
* In ''AudioPlay/SaintBeast'', Maya has a tendency to throw tantrums when things don't go his way.
* Lirin of ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'' definitely qualifies. While most of her behavior is more like "annoying", she has a hair-trigger temper and will scream at or drop boulders on people who annoy her.
* [[LargeHam Nobunaga]] of ''Anime/SengokuOtome'' was told to squeeze a pipe to calm her down whenever she became frustrated. She does this, but it doesn't stop her from threatening ghosts who aren't scared of her stories.
* Shana, the Flame-Haired, Fire-Eyed demon huntress from ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana'', though she's actually a brunette when she's not [[PowerDyesYourHair using her powers]].
* Tiara, the heroine of ''Anime/ShamanicPrincess'', is a very powerful FullContactMagic user with a penchant for {{slasher smile}}s and [[TauntButton taunting]] her opponents. It's a good thing she's up against AntiMagic users and [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm nigh-incomprehensible gods]], or the story would be over really quick.
* ''LightNovel/ShonenOnmyouji'' has this in the shikigami Guren/Toada as well as Takeshi.
* Kiddy Phenil of ''Manga/SilentMobius'', but only in the TV series. Her hair is green in every other version.
* Kyouko Mogami from ''Manga/SkipBeat'', even if, in reality, her hair is black. After her ImportantHaircut, she turns out to be [[HotBlooded extremely fiery]].
* Lina Inverse from ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}''. Bonus points because she has a tendency to make everything go into flames when she's really pissed off.
** It doesn't take much to piss her off either. She once let off a fireball in restaraunt because a fight broke out and her food got spilled.She had to be physically stopped from using one of the most powerful spells out there, called the Dragon Slave, on one of her friends because she wouldn't go back to her employer pretending Lina beat her.
* Subverted in ''Anime/SoltyRei'' with Accela, who is very shy and timid (at least, until she goes LaughingMad in the last few episodes).
* ''Anime/SonicX'''s incarnation of Knuckles.
* Kurisu from ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate''.
* The ''Anime/StrikeWitches'' canon has at least one in Charlotte Yeager, the 501st Joint Fighter Wing's resident {{large ham}} and {{lightning bruiser}}.
* Chocolat from ''Manga/SugarSugarRune''
* Vixen from ''Manga/TheVoynichHotel'' tries not to be this. She fails miserably and hilariously.
* ''LightNovel/TrinityBlood'': Astaroth Aslan ''used'' to be a redhead when she was young (a traumatic event turned it gray/white, all but a streak). Esther Blanchett also fits, especially in the manga. She has more a grounded personality in the novels.
* Princess Rubina from ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' -one of the ''Anime/MazingerZ'' sequels could be quite the spitfire when she was angry. She was the only dared to call the BigBad out.
* Angel Salvia from ''Manga/WeddingPeach'', although green-haired Angel Daisy is also pretty fiery as well.
* Masane Amaha from ''Anime/{{Witchblade}}'' is this post-TransformationSequence.
* ''Manga/TheWorldIsStillBeautiful'' has the female protagonist Nike who has orange hair and a hot-tempered and strong-willed personality.
* Another literal example is Rin from ''Anime/YesPrecure5''. Her hair even turns into a flame-esque style after her transformation.
* Nakiami from ''Anime/XamdLostMemories'' is a subversion. She has red hair, but is taciturn and shows little to no interest in romance. She is an undeniable {{Badass}}, though...
''[[Pinball/XMenStern X-Men (Stern)]]''

* ''ComicBook/XMen'': ComicBook/JeanGrey and Rachel Grey Summers, who not only fit the personality trope, but also happen to manifest their powers in the form of giant birds made of fire. However, Jean often subverts the trope, especially [[CharacterisationMarchesOn in her pre-Phoenix days]], when she was one of the most level-headed Marvel superheroines with a personality very reminiscent of the Fantastic Four's team mommy Sue Storm Richards.

* ''Creator/{{Disney}}'' movies have several of these redheads
** Disney's ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' - Ariel is the first {{rebellious| princess}} Franchise/DisneyPrincess with a thirst for adventure and tendency toward recklessness. The creators of ''Enchanted'' say (strawberry) Giselle owes her spunkiness to her.
** Princess Anna from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''. She has strawberry-blonde hair, and can be pretty fiery when provoked.
** ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' is another fiery redhead, especially during in some of his Twelve Labors, and battling the Titans and Hades.
*** Hades in rage mode also qualifies.
** Creator/{{Pixar}} seems to love this trope.
*** Syndrome from ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' is a male example. His hair's even [[ImprobableHairstyle shaped like a flame]], and his personality is suitably over-the-top. Elastigirl as well.
*** Jessie from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/ToyStory3 3]]''
*** Ellie from ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}''.
*** Merida from ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'', plus her father and triplet brothers.

** Fiona.
** Villainous example: [[BigBad Rumpelstiltskin]] from the fourth movie. Not only does he sport a red buzz cut, but [[LampshadeHanging he also has an]] [[BunnyEarsLawyer enormous, fire-like red wig]] [[MundaneMadeAwesome that he has put on his head dramatically whenever he gets angry]]. And boy, is he ''ever'' [[BadBoss fiery]].
* Tigress, the leader of the Furious Five from ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'', who just happens to be an anthropomorphic wild cat with mostly orange fur.
* Treasure, the wannabe leader of the Female Furies, from ''WesternAnimation/SupermanBatmanApocalypse''. Too bad the four Female Furies killed her, left her as a bloody mess on the ground, and decided to "let the dogs clean up the mess".
* ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe2'' features the orange-haired Lucy Wilde, the very excitable agent assigned to work with Gru.
* [[BigBad Sunset Shimmer]] from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls''.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
[[AC:{{Crossover}}]]
* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'': Asuka is moody, hasty, feisty and temperamental. In her first appearance she got ordered to capture an aquatic EldritchAbomination. She did not really want to because she would have to ''touch'' the slimy, repulsive thing to seize it. Then it bit her robot's hand off. She started to yell, swear, pummel it and claw it so savagely that there only were chunks of bloody flesh smearing the ground when she was done with it.
* ''Fanfic/LastChildOfKrypton'': Asuka is very feisty, short-tempered (especially when she has to deal with idiots or perverts as Touji found out), hot-blooded and battle-thirsty (she was eager to hop into her giant robot and fight when an enemy struck).
* ''Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton'': Although Asuka's character softens up as she matures, she keeps being a bold, hot-tempered and passionate redhead.
* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': Asuka is a [[TheBerserker berserker]] of ''[[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Khorne, God of War]]''. She is a FURNACE of rage, passion, temper, tenderness, aggressiveness and emotion. She is ''repeatedly'' described as passionate, fiery, fierce, furious... and later she actually becomes [[spoiler:the embodiment of War and Wrath.]]

[[AC:''Literature/{{Discworld}}'']]
* Johanna Smith-Rhodes, red-haired Assassin, in fic such as ''Fanfic/NatureStudies'' and ''Fanfic/WhyAndWere'' She also stirs up Pasadena, California, in ''TheBigBangTheory'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheManyWorldsInterpretation''.

[[AC:''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'']]
* In the fan novel ''WolfInPonysClothing'', Apple Bloom thinks that Ardi (a young adult male sapient wolf) is going to eat her. So she kicks him in the head. And bites him on the paw.

[[AC: ''{{Manga/Naruto}}'']]
* The main character of ''FanFic/{{Vapors}}'', Aiko Uzumaki, is usually quite level-headed and tends towards cold anger when enraged, but threatening her brother will make her ''explode''. Also, it turns out that for a lava-style user like the Mizukage the term "boiling rage" can be quite literal, as the discovery of a traitor has ''steam'' whistling out of her mouth for a solid two minutes.

[[AC:''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'']]

* ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'':
** Asuka had lost most of her initial fire after the events of the Angel War and the preceeding fanfic. However she gets it back gradually throughout the story.
** Empress Rayana is a pretty temperamental and emotional woman. Later Shinji and Asuka meet her counterpart from another dimension…
** In fact the whole Avalon Empire is full of them, much to Shinji's disbelief and Asuka's approval.
* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': Asuka. Although her behaviour towards Shinji becomes softer after [[RelationshipUpgrade getting together]], she is still pretty belligerent and explosive to other people, especially if they are trying to steal her boyfriend or interfering with their relationship.
* ''Fanfic/TheChildOfLove'': Asuka is real fiery, fierce and emotional. In chapter 3 Shinji was shocked at her fierceness and rage as she fought.
* ''Fanfic/DoingItRightThisTime'': Time-travel has changed many things for Asuka, but she keeps being brave, bold, hot-tempered and spirited.
* ''Manga/{{Evangelion 303}}'': Asuka is [[http://grummancat.deviantart.com/art/We-Have-Seen-The-Enemy-460948566 a hot-blooded and hot-tempered red-head]].
* ''Fanfic/{{HERZ}}'': Asuka is already a grownup woman and has a better control over her temper than her thirteen-years-old self... but she is still pretty temperamental, hot-headed, loud and passionate. Kurumi even describes her as “fiery”.
* ''Fanfic/HigherLearning'': Asuka's personality mellows down a bit after the first chapters but she still retains her fiery temper and her overflowing passion.
* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'':Asuka is quite the impetuous and strong-willed spitfire, although Shinji's influence is subtly helping her to control and channel her temper.
* ''Fanfic/TheOneILoveIs'': Asuka is quite hot-tempered, hot-blooded and emotional. This is visible in her first scene, where she has a jealousy-fueled public meltdown after Rei has given chocolates to Shinji. It is even reinforced by the episode 4 title ("Don't play with fire") which focused on her.

[[AC:''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'']]

* ''Fanfic/PokemonMaster'': Being a twenty-two-years-old woman -and wield elemental mastery of water and ice- has mellowed Misty NOT AT ALL. She is still just as hot-headed, short-tempered and prone to bursts of rage as her twelve-years self.

[[AC:''Videogame/StarTrekOnline'']]

* ''Fanfic/BaitAndSwitchSTO'' and related fics have Captain Kanril Eleya, a ginger Bajoran who once told Q to "get the ''[[PardonMyKlingon phekk]]'' off my desk!" She's got a temper and she tends to react badly when [[AMotherToHerMen other people put her crew in unnecessary jeopardy]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* In ''[[Literature/{{Dragons}} The Last Dragon Chronicles]]'' Lucy fits this persona perfectly, though it becomes blaringly obvious during [[TeensAreMonsters her teenage years]].
* In the Literature/{{Branion}} series by Fiona Patton, the royal family of an alternate Britain is literally this. The sovereigns are the Jesus-style avatars of a fire god, and they commonly have red hair. They also have tempers, which is not surprising given that effectively having a fire god inside you is [[RoyallyScrewedUp not good for your mental stability]]. Justified by the presence in their family tree of [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Danes, Welsh and Irish]].
* Literature/GemmaDoyle and her mother.
* The ''Ashtown Burials'' series, by N.D. Wilson, has the reddish-brown haired Diana Boone. She doesn't have a particularly quick temper, but she is a skilled warrior and ace pilot, and you don't want to be on the wrong side of her when she does get angry.
* In ''Literature/ShamanOfTheUndead'', Zofia, aptly nicknamed Redhead, has HairTriggerTemper, especially when around [[TheStoic Brittle]] or [[ActionSurvivor Ida]], and is annoyed when others aren't as professional about their jobs as she is.
* Practically every female character in the novels of Creator/RobertAHeinlein. Even a few of the male characters qualify.
* [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Mara Jade Skywalker]], Luke's wife and DeadpanSnarker extraordinaire. She can get [[MamaBear very nasty]] if you hit her BerserkButton.
** As is her son, Ben Skywalker. The striking similarities between the two (particularly their personalities) are brought up fairly often in profic, especially in ''[[Literature/LegacyOfTheForce Sacrifice]]'', and a LOT in fanfic. To be honest, probably the only notable physical feature he inherited from Luke are his blue eyes.
* Ygritte from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. All redheads are believed to be "kissed by fire" in the wildling culture and have a reputation for spirit. Rickon Stark inherited the Tully red hair and is the most expressive of the Stark children. And on the averted side, you have Sansa, Catelyn, and Melisandre, who express their anger in [[BewareTheNiceOnes different]] ways...
* ''Literature/HarryPotter''
** Ginny Weasley, as well as Molly and the rest of the Weasleys. A more mellow example is Percy, and he's regarded as a stick-in-the-mud.
** Harry's mother, Lily, was also like this, mostly around James before they ended up hooking up. Hmm, maybe the Potter men have a thing for fiery redheads.
* Literature/CiaphasCain '''HERO OF THE IMPERIUM''''s comrades Colonel Kasteen and Trooper (later Corporal) Magot fit this trope to a T, Magot almost to the point of being a PsychoLesbian. And, no, the two redheads are not a couple.
* C. L. Moore's Literature/JirelOfJoiry.
* Calliope in John Barnes's ''Literature/OneForTheMorningGlory''.
* Annie, aka Naughty Nan, in TheFilmOfTheBook, at least, of ''[[LittleWomen Little Men]]''.
* ''Literature/AnneOfGreenGables'':
** Justified with Anne Shirley whose temper was at its fieriest when she was teased about her red hair (being one of the few characters whose fire is connected to their coloring). She chewed out the neighborhood busybody and also responded to being called "Carrots" by breaking her slate over a schoolmate's head. Nobody ever teased her about her red hair again, after the social snubbing Gilbert got for five or so years. Ironically, they end up marrying. [[note]] It's ironic for Anne. That was Gilbert's goal [[LoveAtFirstPunch since the beginning]]. [[/note]]
** Anne never quite gets over her dislike of her red hair. She didn't even like it when her ''children'' inherited it. When Jem is born and the nurse tells her his hair will be red, Gilbert reports to Marilla that "Anne is furious with her, and I'm tickled to death!"
* ''[[PrydainChronicles The Chronicles of Prydain]]''
** Princess Eilonwy is the extremely temperamental {{Tsundere}} ActionGirl whose temper is feared even by her friends, and especially her [[WellExcuseMePrincess love interest]].
** The boisterous King Smoit, who is jolly and personable with his friends, but unleashes a warrior's temper on those who anger him.
* Dylan Marvil from ''Literature/TheClique''.
* Aviendha (and, to a lesser extent, all Aiel women) from the [[Literature/TheWheelOfTime Wheel of Time]] series behave like this. They are quite proficient with the spears and knives they threaten men who make unwanted advances with.
* Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's daughter Longstocking, from the ''Literature/PippiLongstocking'' series (and subsequent adaptations). Don't mess with this [[CuteBruiser tank of a little girl]].
* In Robert Graves' ''King Jesus'', Jesus has red hair, that being one of the eight "signs of royalty".
* Herrenna the Henna-Haired Harridan, a side character in ''Discworld/TheLightFantastic'' has red hair (per her title) and absolutely no patience or pity for either Rincewind or Twoflower. Oh, and she has a [[{{BFS}} very big sword]].
* "Red" from ''Literature/GoodOmens''.
** Also, Pepper.
* Alanna of Trebond of ''Literature/SongOfTheLioness'' (the first book in the ''Literature/TortallUniverse'') has bright red hair and a temper to match. Her squire later remarks how she's known for her sharp edges--sword, knife, and tongue.
* Ditto with Tris in Tammy's ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'' series. She's very prickly from years of verbal abuse and abandonment. She does eventually warm up to her new friends, but she's still quick to sarcasm and doesn't tolerate fools gladly.
* Talea in Creator/AlanDeanFoster's ''Literature/{{Spellsinger}}''.
* Ce'Nedra from David Eddings's ''Literature/{{Belgariad}}''. Not just her husband Belgarion, not just their royal court, the ''entire kingdom'' of Riva is focused on keeping Queen Ce'Nedra happy. Because the alternative is just too grisly to contemplate.
* Renn from ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfAncientDarkness''.
* Squirrelflight of ''Literature/WarriorCats'' would qualify as a Fiery Redpelt.
** Her mother, Sandstorm, was one as well.
** Red, who defies her father's wishes to pursue a romance with her [[StarCrossedLovers Star-Crossed Lover]].
* Maedhros, Amrod, and Amras from Creator/JRRTolkien's ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' are the only elves to be described as redheads who fit the personality type. They're fierce, rash, more violent than is really healthy, and not particularly wise or patient... but then so are all their darker-haired siblings. A lot of fans assume their mother Nerdanel's also redheaded, thought the author only ever said her ''father'' is, and both of their personalities are the complete opposite: calm, soft-spoke, patient, and wise. They also had the sense not to join the rebellion of the Noldor, which is why they're still alive.
* Karen in ''Literature/TheThreeWorldsCycle''. Specifically in the first quartet, where she appears as a main character. She takes on Rulke, for Io's sake, and harasses every main character through the whole quartet. And she just happens to be described as having "extremely fiery red hair"...
* Sarah in ''Literature/TalesOfAnMazingGirl''is pretty firey in the right circumstances, if she often keeps her sass to herself.
* Jennsen Rahl in the Literature/SwordOfTruth series. In-story, red hair is often (falsely) stereotyped as the hair color of ''witches'' among the blond-haired D'Haran purebloods, rather than indicative of personality.
* [[TheChick April O'Brien]] of ''Literature/{{Everworld}}'', who also has GreenEyes and an Irish ancestry, perhaps to sharpen the contrast between her and [[SiblingYinYang her half-sister]], who is a [[BlondesAreEvil blond]], [[LonersAreFreaks antisocial]] EmotionlessGirl.
* Ysabeau Wilce's ''Crackpot Hall'' series has both male and female examples with Hotspur and [[TheButcher Butcher Brakespeare]] respectively.
* Randle Patrick [=McMurphy=], in ''Literature/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest''.
* Karen from ''Literature/DragonsInOurMidst''.
* Red in Creator/AaronAllston's ''Literature/GalateaIn2D''; not only does Penny play WomenAreWiser in their BattleCouple, when Penny is dying and only their boss can save her, Red clearly has to fight to keep begging him to do so instead of attacking him.
* Terry Brooks' [[Literature/{{Shannara}} Voyage of the Jerle Shannara]] introduces Rue Meridian, who steals airships single-handedly and kills lizard-men, and you had better not tell her she can't.
* Wisty of ''Literature/WitchAndWizard'' is a FieryRedhead who can actually ''light herself on fire''.
* Bronwyn in ''Bronwyn's Bane''. Living with a serious curse increases her anger management issues.
* Clementine from ''The Liberation of Clementine Tipton''.
* Maggy Mulligan from ''Faraway Dream''.
* Gwen Jones from the ''Cherry Ames'' mysteries.
* Madeline from ''Madeline''.
* The Fire-witches in the Literature/EnchantedForestChronicles deserve special mention: when they get angry enough (which is often), their hair ''explodes''.
* Sioned, Sionell, and Feylin, among others of Melanie Rawn's ''Literature/DragonPrince'' and ''Literature/DragonStar'' trilogies.
* Margot Maynard in Elinor M Brent-Dyer's Literature/ChaletSchool series. Her hair is constantly described as 'reddish-gold' and she has an absolutely rotten temper, which she blames on her 'demon'. She tries to control it, but it often gets the better of her, culminating in her nearly killing a girl with a bookend in ''The Chalet School Triplets''. Her cousin Sybil Russell also qualifies, at least as a child, until an accident with a kettle and her younger sister [[BreakTheHaughty has a drastic effect on her personality]].
* ''Literature/IRobot'' has engineer Mike Donovan, described as possessed of perpetually unkempt red hair, a short temper, and a generally HotBlooded personality, in contrast to his calmer dark-haired work partner Gregory Powell.
* Felicity of the Literature/AmericanGirlsCollection is a spunky, spritely colonial girl, full of energy and independence.
* Princess Elizabeth of Literature/TheRoyalDiaries' ''Elizabeth I: Red Rose of the House of Tudor'' can swear up a storm when she wants to.
* The main character of the Literature/DearAmerica book ''A Coal Miner's Bride: The Diary of Anetka Kaminska'' complains about everything about her looks except her red hair. At one point, she suddenly remembered that she was her mother's fiery redhead and started yelling at her ungrateful husband with a list of the things she does for him.
* 'Red' Kelly and his sister Kelly Kelly in the ''Literature/YoungBond novels''. In fact, the whole Kelly clan might qualify.
* 'Red' Blaze from the Civil War and Floating Outfit novels of Creator/JTEdson. Blaze is the most hotheaded and impetuous of Edson's heroes.
* Literature/InDeath series: Feeney has ginger hair. He may seem rather calm, but he can be explosive when he's angry.
* Literature/TimeScout: Margo Smith.
* Rachel Elizabeth Dare in ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''. Although [[StealthPun it's never]] [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]], even her initials spell [[MeaningfulName R.E.D.]]
* Literature/SisterhoodSeries by Creator/FernMichaels: just ask Kathryn Lucas and Maggie Spritzer. They have red hair and the attitude to match!
* In "Nobody Here But—", a short story by Creator/IsaacAsimov, protagonist Cliff Anderson is deeply in love with his red-haired girlfriend Mary Ann, but does not quite have the courage to ask her to marry him. Throughout the story Cliff talks about how wonderful Mary Ann is, but always amends his statement with "but she does have red hair;" she [[InvokedTrope acts feisty and aggressive because that is how girls with red hair act]].
* In Tom Robbins' ''Still Life With Woodpecker'', in addition to the two red-haired protagonists (FallenPrincess Leigh Cherry and {{Outlaw}} Bernard Mickey Wrangle), there's a involved sideplot/conspiracy theory around the extraterrestrial origins of redheads.
** In Asimov's Literature/LuckyStarr series, Lucky's sidekick John Bigman Jones has pale red hair, a short temper, and a generally emotional nature. Lucky, on the other hand, is calm and brown-haired.
* The princesses of ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'' are all noted for having red hair, referred to as "the royal red" at a few points. Each princess has a different personality and none are exactly mercurial, but strength and passion are part of all of them.
* [[RedheadedHero Cord MaKiy]] from the ''Literature/{{ColSec Trilogy}}'', although it's somewhat mitigated by his introversion.
* Jessie in ''High Society'' by Creator/BenElton. Her hair colour (dark auburn/reddish-brown) is referred to only once, but combined with her personality she is an obvious example of this trope.
* Kaylana the druid in ''Literature/{{Villains by Necessity}}''. Living up to the trope by answering any attempts to approach her with a staff knocked over the poor man's head.
* Prince Bryan in ''Literature/SummersAtCastleAuburn'' is every negative stereotype associated with red hair.
* Clary Fray from ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'', is easily upset and often lashes out at people.
* The main protagonist of the ''Literature/CronusChronicles'', Charlotte, is the grumpy variety.
* ''Creator/SimonaAhrnstedt'' gives us Beatrice Löwenström in her debut novel ''Literature/{{Overenskommelser}}''. She's intelligent, competent and assertive. But alas, many people in this era (the 1880s) prefer quiet and subservient women. And being at the mercy of her abusive uncle, who bullies her into a marriage with a man, who treats women like dirt under his shoes, she finds that out the hard way. But she's not afraid to call her oppressors out on what creeps they are, even if that only makes them even angrier with her...
** Averted with Beata Jensdotter in "De skandalösa". Despite being a redhead, she's less fiery than the brunette protagonist Magdalena.
* ''[[Literature/AMagesPower A Mage's Power]]'': The Bladi Clan is PlayingWithATrope. They all have red hair as a dominant trait but their temperments vary.
** Basilard is only firece in battle. Otherwise he's mellow.
** Mia is closer to RoseHairedSweetie with her kind nature
** Raki is a rude and aggressive dual wielder.
* Rose Hathaway from ''Literature/VampireAcademy'' is a brunette with some tinges of red in her hair, described to be extremely strong-willed, stubborn, passionate, feisty, fiery, proud and impulsive.
* Inverted with Fiona from ''Literature/TheGiver''. She is said to be calm and serene from Jonas.
* Kristen Börstrom from ''Literature/{{MARZENA}}'' is a Swedish redhead Ex-Cop turned into super killer assassin. Although red is not her natural color, it does seem to match her temper.
* Chloe Wentworth from ''The Lost Sisters of Pleasant Valley'' novels.
* Katelyn, the spunky GranolaGirl from ''Literature/{{Insupu}}''.
* ''Literature/MidnightsChildren'' has Saleem's sister the Brass Monkey, who got her nickname because she's one of these. She is also ''literally'' fiery, in that she lights shoes on fire to get attention. Her hair darkens to brown when she turns nine, and she subsequently mellows out a bit.
* Iris of ''Literature/TheFirstDwarfKing'' definitely counts. She's an ActionGirlfriend to the hero, Jani.
** Averted by [[TheHighQueen Aristomache]]; while she's a capable LadyOfWar, she acts calm and reserved most of the time.
* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': The female District 10 Tribute in ''Catching Fire'', being the only redhead of all the tributes.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action Films]]
* ''Film/DownWithLove'' - Renee Zellweger's character stops being a wimpy woman and dyes her hair red to show it.
* Charlene, played by AmyAdams in ''Film/TheFighter'', who delivers the immortal line "Don't call me a skank. I'll rip that nasty hair right outta your fuckin' head."
* Rose in ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'' is a pistol even when she's being polite. At lunch she tells Mr. Ismay that Dr. Freud's ideas about the male preoccupation with size might be of particular interest to him. When Cal tries to stop her from going to Jack she tells him that she's rather be Jack's whore than Cal's wife and spits in Cal's face.
%%* Black Widow in the ''MarvelCinematicUniverse'', to some extent.
* ''Film/DiamondsAreForever''. When Film/JamesBond first meets Tiffany Case, she's outspoken, quite rude to him, and has a bit of a temper. She changed wigs (from blonde to brunette), then appeared as a redhead.
-->'''Film/JamesBond:''' I don't care much for redheads. Terrible tempers. But somehow it seems to suit you.\\
'''Tiffany:''' It's my own.
** [[{{Tsundere}} Natalya]] is all over this trope in ''Film/{{GoldenEye}}''.
* The Ur-Fiery redhead, Mary-Kate Dannaher in John Ford's ''Film/TheQuietMan''. As another character puts it, "That red hair is no lie!" She tries to slug out John Wayne himself! Maureen O'Hara's finest FieryRedhead hour.
** Maureen O'Hara was a real-life example herself: during filming of one scene where Creator/JohnFord kept complaining about her reacting to her hair being blown into her eyes, she snapped "What would a bald son-of-a-bitch know about getting hair in his eyes?!"
* Bortai, the redheaded Tartar princess played by Susan Hayward in the JohnWayne flop ''The Conqueror''.
* Ginny Weasley from ''Film/HarryPotter'' is a double subversion as she is usually soft spoken but:
-->'''Harry:''' Okay, so this morning I'm going to be putting you all though a few drills, just to set things straight...\\
[Everybody keeps talking]\\
'''Harry:''' Quiet, please!\\
[Nobody listens to him]\\
'''Ginny:''' SHUT IT!\\
[Silence]\\
'''Harry:''' ...thanks.
** In fact, many fo the Weasleys fit this trope. Ron is probably the most obvious exapmle, being a man of [[HotTemper short temper]] and many [[BerserkButton soft spots]], like his family's financial straits, his inferiority complexes (in plural), his romantic inaptitude, mudblood shaming, and pretty much anything that comes out of [[SmugSnake Draco Malfoy's]] mouth.
* Free-spirited and flamboyant Delysia Lafosse from ''Film/MissPettigrewLivesForADay''.
* The fabulous Miss Vida Boheme in ''Film/ToWongFooThanksForEverythingJulieNewmar''. Subverted somewhat in that Vida Boheme is really Patrick Swayze in drag, and the red hair is a wig.
* Mr. Clarence Day, Sr. of ''Life With Father'' is a male example.
* April, the main character's friend in ''Film/DefinitelyMaybe'', forcefully tells him how to propose to his girlfriend.
* KnifeNut Lynne from ''Film/TheWarriorsWay''.
* Ann Sheridan in several movies from the late 1930s/early 1940s.
* ''Film/XMen'':
** Mystique. Given it's her natural color - in mutant form. [[spoiler:After she's "cured", her natural hair color is raven black]].
** Jean Grey, especially as the Dark Phoenix in ''Film/XMenTheLastStand''.
** Sean Cassidy/Banshee from ''Film/XMenFirstClass''. His actor even auditioned because it was a rare ginger superhero. Ironically, Sean's one of the least hot-headed and combative of the students, with those titles going moreso to Alex and Raven.
** Yukio from ''Film/TheWolverine''. Though it's clearly not her natural hair color.
* Shannon of ''{{Film/Far and Away}}'' fits this easily.
--> '''Joseph:''' I warn you. That redhead has a bite that stings.
* ''Film/TheWoods'' with Heather, played by Agnes Bruckner.
* Henriette de Nevers is an understated but still adventurous redhead in the film version of ''Film/LaReineMargot''.
* Gimli of ''Film/LordOfTheRings'' has red hair with a matching beard as well as being quick-tempered. Well, the temper part is kinda obvious because he is a Dwarf. Same goes for his father Glóin in ''Film/TheHobbit''.
* Spirited Ashley in ''Junebug'' is a midler and realistic version of this.
* Scarlet from ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra''.
* Almost any character played by Maureen O'Hara.
* Lil from the appropriately titled ''Film/RedHeadedWoman'', who is a gold-digging seductress. If you break a date with her, she may follow you to your house and scream at you while you are talking with your wife. If your party upstages hers, she may show up and make a scene. And if you dump her, she might pull out a gun and shoot you.
* Murph in ''Film/{{Interstellar}}'', who is as brilliant as she is mercurial. More literally when she sets Tom's crops on fire to cause a distraction and sneak back to his house.
* Maya (also played by Creator/JessicaChastain) from ''Film/ZeroDarkThirty'' is a [[TheDeterminator determined]] woman [[MarriedToTheJob with an insane obsession to search for]] UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden at all costs. Her towering male co-workers are quite impressed with her explosive nature and snarky boasts.
* Sarah Harding in ''Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark''. She is an animal enthusiast that studies predators and when she has the very chance of meeting dinosaurs she doesn't doubt for a second, despite Ian's rantings and warnings.
** Claire Dearing, the Film/JurassicWorld operations manager, can be ''redder than ever'' if you remind her how bad her first date went. And let's not talk about when she is determined to find her nephews, [[ActionDressRip ripping her clothes]] [[CombatStilettos and wearing heels in action included]].
* Ilsa Faust from ''Film/MissionImpossibleRogueNation''. [[ActionGirl She kicks out the damn out of everyone with her dark red hair and freckles]]. She has GreenEyes too.
* Cynthia in ''Film/LoveFindsAndyHardy''. Cynthia is gorgeous, and apparently quite a bit sluttier than all the other girls in Carvel--Andy doesn't know how to deal with Cynthia's nonstop desire for "hugging and kissing." Cynthia dumps Andy like yesterday's garbage after she gets a look at TheAllegedCar he just bought.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/TheAmazingRace'': Jaime Edmondson and, to a lesser extent, her team-mate Cara Rosenthal.
* ''Series/{{Castle}}'': Castle is surrounded by fiery redheads (with varying degrees of redness): his spacy but tough mother, his sweet daughter who isn't afraid to tell him off when necessary, and his police detective partner who is a {{Badass}} ActionGirl with a gun. In fact, as Beckett has [[DefrostingIceQueen defrosted]] and become much less icy and abrasive, her hair has [[http://www.ctv.ca/beimage.asmx?imgurl=files/2013%2F2%2F4%2F82dab96f76c5e751_600x338_castle_beckett_then.jpg softened]] from a deep red to brown.
* ''Commander In Chief'': Vice-President Mackenzie Allen was encouraged by ''everyone'' to resign when death by aneurysm got a hold of the President. Instead, she took the Oath of Office, won the country, and was generally a spitfire who shouldered the responsibility of the Presidency without getting drunk on power - and God help you if you stood in her way. Fiery Redhead, indeed!
* ''Series/CovingtonCross'': Eleanor Grey.
* ''Series/{{CSI}}'': Catherine Willows borderlines this, as a strawberry blonde. It's not deep red, but probably got enough red mixed with the blonde to count. And she's got the personality to go with it.
* ''Series/CSIMiami'': Horatio Caine, sometimes. You definitely don't want to get on his bad side. He'll hunt you across however many countries it takes, as the Mala Noches could attest. He didn't exactly seem to have trouble getting women, either, though they kept getting killed for some reason.
* ''Series/DaysOfOurLives'': Melanie Jonas (formerly Melanie Layton Kiriakis). Despite being downright saccharine at times, if you get on her bad side, she'll ''really'' let you have it. Also, since she's about to gain her sixth love interest in less than three years, she definitely qualifies as an example of HeroesWantRedheads. Her ParentalSubstitute Maggie also fits this trope.
* ''Series/{{Defiance}}'': Irisa Nyira, played by Music/StephanieLeonidas (who is not red-headed in {{Real Life}}). This leading to this comment IMDB: "Is it wrong of me to find her more attractive as an alien than the actor behind it?" and the reply, "Proof that redheads are just better?". Irisa is possibly also an example of the "Big Eyes" part of trope {{Big Eyes Little Eyes}}.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** Donna Noble, who was probably the loudest companion yet (but that's not necessarily a bad thing). One character refers to her as being "all red hair and fire".
** Or the just-as-loud Melanie Bush.
** Dr. Grace Holloway. HeroesWantRedheads, evidently, if only to go on adventures with and maybe kiss a little.
** As well as Amy Pond. Not quite as loud, but just as fiery. Actually {{lampshade| hanging}}d in the show itself, with the line, "Loves a redhead, our Doctor!"
* ''Series/EastEnders'': Bianca Jackson.
* ''The Edge of Night'': Raven Whitney.
* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'': Jool and Sikozu.
* ''Series/FirstWave'': Jordan Radcliffe.
* ''Series/FraggleRock'': Red, with her extreme tomboy nature, her...very high self-esteem, and her dominant personality (which itself causes numerous conflicts), plus her own explicitly stated desires ("The Tale of the Triumphant Princess" anyone?).
* ''Series/{{Glee}}'': InvertedTrope: the only redheaded character is the super sweet Emma. Every other female character (except Brittany and Tina) is extremely fiery.
* ''Series/GreysAnatomy'' and ''PrivatePractice'': Addison Montgomery - former Montgomery-Shepherd. She's also pretty successful with men (Derek, Mark, Alex, Kevin, Noah), so she's also an example of HeroesWantRedheads.
* ''Series/HouseOfAnubis'': Patricia. She even scares the boys when she gets mad...which happens quite often. Her hair gets darker as the show goes on, though.
* ''Series/ILoveLucy'': Lucy Ricardo -- 60% screwball, 40% spitfire.
* ''TheInspectorLynleyMysteries'': Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, with the accompanying [[{{Tsundere}} temper]] and GreenEyes.
* ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'': When Assistant District Attorney Casey Novak isn't on the scene with guns blazing and taking a hands-on approach to the cases, she is in softball batting practice or bicycling to work.
* ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'': Jennsen Rahl.
* ''Series/{{Lost}}'': Charlotte.
* ''Series/MadMen'': Joan.
* ''Series/MagnificentCentury'': Aleksandra/Hürrem. Almost the first thing she does in the series is to grab a breadknife and attack the slavers who are holding her and her countrywomen captive.
* ''Series/MelrosePlace'': ''All'' of the redheaded women on Melrose Place (at least eventually in [[CharacterizationMarchesOn Kimberly Shaw's case]]), but most noticably Sydney Andrews, the troublemaking, prostitute/stripper younger sister of Jane Mancini.
** And this was not just reserved for women; there was also Dr. Bret "Coop" Cooper, as well.
* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'': Queen Annis.
* ''MySoCalledLife'': Central character Angela Chase evokes this trope by dying her hair "crimson glow". Former best friend Sharon Cherski is a ''lot'' calmer and more manageable than Angela, but she still easily fits the trope. Same goes with Hallie Lowenthal, the series' resident adult FieryRedhead.
* ''Series/{{Picket Fences}}'': As seemingly the sole female cop in the boy's club that is the Rome Sheriff's Department, Deputy Maxine 'Max' Stewart definitely fits the prototype of the fiery redhead. She's determined, passionate , ambitious, outspoken at times and quick to anger.
* ''Series/RescueSpecialOps'': Heidi. There are quite a few examples of this but one that stands out is when the Cops and Firies trick Chase out of RSO's equipment after he is put on light duties, Heidi uses her cleverness to trick both into giving the equipment back [[spoiler:by giving them the information about a nurses party, she fails to mention that it's a male nurses party.]]
* ''Series/{{Revolution}}'': Emma in the episode "[[Recap/RevolutionS1E15Home Home]]". She wasn't a combatant like most other characters, but she didn't hesitate to get in Big Bad Monroe's face and call him out on his actions. She also attempted to make an honest appeal to his better nature. It didn't work, but he did admit that he wants to be the person she remembers so badly. She was his girlfriend at one time, so it gave them a special connection. [[spoiler: Then, when he tried using her as a hostage, she didn't panic. In fact, she ended revealing that she gave birth to his son at some point in time and sent him away. Before she can tell him where, she got shot and killed. She had a major impact on Monroe from beginning to end]].
* ''{{Series/Salem}}'': Anne Hale, one of the few people to speak out against the witch hunt.
* ''{{Series/Selfie}}'' has a downplayed example in main character Eliza (played by Karen Gillan). While not exactly fiery, she is rather emotional, impulsive, and flighty.
* ''Series/TheSentinel'': We have Naomi Sandburg, who seems like a peace-loving ex-flowerchild, until you threaten her son; Jim's ex-wife Carolyn; and Megan Connor, the Antipodean Amazon.
* ''Series/SleepyHollow'' has Ichabod Crane's wife Katrina. Abbie put it best after Ichabod despairs that he should have stopped Katrina from [[spoiler: staying with the Headless Horseman to spy on Moloch's plans.]]
-->'''Abbie''': She's a grown woman, a witch, and a redhead. You couldn't have stopped her if you tried.
* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'': Tess Mercer. You do NOT want to get in her way or get her angry.
* ''{{Series/Spellbinder}}'': Ashka, the callous, mean, chronically double-crossing and power-hungry bitch.
* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': Major Kira Nerys. Former Bajoran resistance fighter, current second-in-command of ''Deep Space Nine'', and with an always fiery personality. She once beat the shit out of a ''serial killer'' while the equivalent of ''nine months pregnant''. The personality type is implied by Chief O'Brien in the pilot to be a trait common in Bajoran women (probably referring back to Ro Laren, whose role the character of Kira was created to replace).
* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': Dr. Beverly Crusher - do not piss her off or you will find yourself dropped by Klingon martial arts faster than you can say 'hypospray'.
* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'': Captain Janeway, though, as she's TheCaptain, she doesn't have to lose her temper, just give them the [[DeathGlare Glare of Death]]. Strong, very expressive, and touchy in her body language even though she's a CelibateHero, and quickly gets {{Badass}} on anyone who threatens her ship or crew.
* ''Series/{{Suits}}'': Donna Paulsen.
* ''Series/TeenWolf'' has the feisty, ambitious Lydia Martin.
* ''Series/WhatILikeAboutYou'': Tina.
* ''Series/WillAndGrace'': Grace Adler sometimes qualifies.
* Wrestling/{{WWE}}: Amy Dumas (Lita) was a pretty decent personification of this, being flashy, outgoing, and pretty willing to jump in the middle of anyone who crossed her, male or female.
* ''Series/TheXFiles'': Dr. Dana Scully is a deliberate InvertedTrope. She is a redhead, but, between her and Mulder, she is the [[AgentScully analytical and restrained partner]], while the TallDarkAndSnarky Mulder is the [[AgentMulder passionate believer]]. It's also quite rare that we see Scully really angry, and it usually takes something [[NotSoStoic pretty extreme]] to piss her off. [[BerserkButton Hurting Mulder in any way]] is a ''very'' bad idea, though.
* ''TheYoungOnes'': Vyvyan (who's a guy, by the way), the resident [[TheQuincyPunk punk]], actually breaks the bonds of fiery and crosses over into ''volcanic''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'' gives us an excellent example in the [[PluckyGirl determined]], [[HotBlooded passionate]] and [[GenkiGirl energetic]] Lynne.
* Midna from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''.
** [[BigBad Ganondorf]] even more so, especially in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]''.
* Ladies and gentlemen: SelfDemonstrating/{{Bowser}}, [[BigBad King of the Koopas]] from Franchise/SuperMarioBros.
** He is even able to breathe fire.
** Princess Daisy of ''Super Mario Land''. Friend and unconfirmed cousin of Princess Peach, the redhead Daisy was stated as a tomboy in ''Mario Tennis'', her first modern appearance, and is known for her energetic, loud, and competitive character traits.
* Nariko from ''VideoGame/HeavenlySword''. There has perhaps never been so much red coming out of one head.
** Excepting, perhaps, cases of [[YourHeadAsplode massive cranial trauma]].
* Claus and Kumatora from ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}''.
* Atlas from ''VideoGame/MegaManZX Advent'' uses fire attacks when merged with Model F. ''[[ViewerGenderConfusion She]]'' doesn't mess around.
** Before that was ''VideoGame/MegaMan1's'' Fire Man, who was a [[IncrediblyLamePun red fieryhead]]. His ''MegaManPoweredUp'' depiction is HotBlooded to the point of sounding like [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Yosemite Sam]].
* The chestnut-haired AxCrazy Aran Ryan from the VideoGame/PunchOut series.
** Also the auburn-haired, militant steel machine, Von Kaiser.
* Excepting the game versions and art which depicted her as a blonde or brunette, Tyris Flare of the ''GoldenAxe'' series. A fiery redhead in that she was able to summon explosions and dragons with her magic.
* Tasha/Zadia from ''VideoGame/AdvanceWars: Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict''.
* Aika from ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia''. She seems to be aligned with the Red Moon, which embodies heat, as well.
* What ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'s'' Adell lacks in gender, he makes up in ridiculous levels of fieriness - both [[HotBlooded figuratively]] and [[PlayingWithFire literally]].
* Mars Adepts in ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' typically partner this trope with [[HotBlooded Hot Blood]] and PersonalityPowers, making them good cases of ColorCodedForYourConvenience. Red hair = [[PlayingWithFire fire!]] As of ''GoldenSunDarkDawn'', we have:
** Garet (hair is more brown in his character art, but red on his sprite and he fits the personality)
*** Garet's siblings both demonstrate this trope; his parents, less so.
** Jenna (hair is [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair maroon]], but the personality fits).
** Akafubu of Kibombo (subverting MagicalNegro in the process).
** Karst (surprisingly, the only Fire Clan member to follow this trope).
** Tyrell (considering Garet's his father).
** Eoleo the Champa (debuted in ''Golden Sun: The Lost Age'', but grew into the personality for ''Dark Dawn'').
* ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' features the sharp-tongued, passionate, brash tiefling thief Annah-Of-The-Shadows.
* Of all the Redheads in ''TheWitcher'', Princess Adda is the one who could be called fiery. [[MagicWarrior Triss]] has her moments but is more often the tactician in combat or politics, as does [[TheMedic Shanni]], but she is more often [[TheChick motherly]].
* Subverted in ''[[FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]''. Eliwood is a redhead, but he's very level-headed and somewhat of a TechnicalPacifist. The HotBlooded one among the lords is LightningBruiser Hector, who happens to have...''blue'' hair. Also subverted with Kent, who's an OfficerAndAGentleman and TheLancer to Lyn.
** Averted in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemSacredStones'' by the [[PhenotypeStereotype typically]] red-haired Jehannans, who are usually very friendly. Most notable example being [[NiceHat Joshua]], who is known for being a gambling addict, not hot-tempered.
** Seth from the same game is also very level-headed and [[KnightInShiningArmor noble.]]
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' gives us Sully, the redheaded ActionGirl from Chrom's Shepherds group. Can be potentially played straight by either Owain, Cynthia, or [[{{Tsundere}} Severa]] [[spoiler: from the KidFromTheFuture team]] too, but only if [[spoiler: either of them is fathered by a redheaded man; i.e, Gaius or a redhaired male Avatar.]] Averted by [[BadassBookworm Miriel or Laurent]], however.
* [[ActionGirl Monica]] [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Raybrandt]] in ''VideoGame/DarkCloud 2''. Even though the game's point of view is centered on Max, she's the leader in the team and has a...unique sense of humor, especially where Firbits are concerned.
* Kimmy Eckman from ''BackyardSports''.
* Steve Burnside from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica''.
* That Fighter sprite from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' caused nothing but trouble.
** [[Webcomic/EightBitTheater I hear that]] [[WelcomeToCorneria he likes swords]].
** Averted by the White Mage.
** Subverted in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' with [[DarkSkinnedRedhead Wakka]], who is probably the most laid back character in the game. He has his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txGwkowqqJg angry]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpsFe81I6bw moments]], though.
* House Harkonnen from the ''Dune'' games. While this trope may not be entirely noticeable in ''VideoGame/DuneII'' and ''Dune 2000'', this is very prevalent in ''VideoGame/EmperorBattleForDune''. Several of the Harkonnen people notably have red hair (including Baron Rakan, Copec, and plenty of the house's infantry) and this very house is known to be cruel even to their own. The Baron does not hesitate one bit to scold a field general who failed a mission, giving a warning like "if this inept performance continues, I'll have you skinned alive!" Indeed, when you view the first FMV cutscene for this house, you hear the previous general cry out in agony, getting tortured by a slow and excruciatingly painful death because he failed his superior leaders. In the cutscenes, Copec and Rakan have short tempers. In the first cutscene when Gunseng attempts to help his ailing father, Rakan pushes Gunseng away with a hint of anger and tells him to go away. The whole House of the Harkonnen is corrupt and only consider their own desires, hence the artificial alterations to most of Geidi Prime; hardly anything can grow there by itself and new things require the expense of older substances to develop.
* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': The Normandy crew has two redhead [=NPCs=]. One is the ThePollyanna, but the other is a hotheaded BraveScot who fits even if he's an engineer rather than a fighter.
** PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard can be one depending on player choices, especially now that the default female Shepard in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' is a SignificantGreenEyedRedhead.
* Inverted in ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'', in which (by hair color) Aribeth is the closest thing to a redhead among all of the [=NPCs=] but is also the most rational and collected of the entire cast (until the [[MindRape dreams]] begin).
* At first glance, this trope is averted in ''Dragon Age: Origins'', where pious "good girl" Leliana is a redhead and "bad girl" Morrigan is a brunette. But Morrigan is a frosty kind of dark - sexual but not emotional; whereas Leliana is a former seductress-assassin and potentially an affectionate romance option for the player's character (whether male or female).
** If Leliana becomes "hardened" due to her personal quest, she plays this trope perfectly straight from then on.
** Aveline from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' also seems to be one, and various redheaded [=NPCs=] play it straight, subvert it, etc.
* Lilith from ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' has ElementalPowers in a game otherwise mostly devoid of sorcery.
* Natalie from ''VideoGame/ApeEscape''.
* [[PlayingWithFire Axel]] from KingdomHearts.
* The titular heroine of ''[[AtelierSeries Atelier Liese]]''. [[spoiler:She is slightly tamer by the time she reappears in ''VideoGame/{{Atelier Annie|Alchemists of Sera Island}}'', but still.]]
* [[TraumaCenter Trauma Team]] features Maria Torres, who is in first response. She seems [[DarkSkinnedRedhead pretty tanned, too]].
* As stated above, Misty from ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue''. [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Flannery]] (who's a [[PlayingWithFire Fire-type]] Gym Leader) and [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Gardenia]] fit to a point, too.
** Maxie from ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' is an interesting subversion- despite being an EvilRedhead who likes PlayingWithFire, he doesn't have the personality!
** Mars from ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'', one of the Team Galactic admins who of all things has a short temper.
** Chili from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', Unova's resident Fire-type Gym Leader.
** Silver, the rival of the ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver''
** Pokémon example: Darmanitan, the absolutely ''berserk''-looking daruma doll gorilla, is covered in red fur. A literal example too, as it's a [[PlayingWithFire Fire]]-type. The series has a few other examples like this.
** From the NobunagasAmbition crossover, VideoGame/PokemonConquest gives us Kai, who has ''literal'' fiery red hair. Not in the FlamingHair sense; this woman's hair ''shapes'' like flames when she gets angry, and looks like an explosion when she get's shocked. Fittingly, her Perfect Link is Darmanitan, listed directly above.
** From the Pokémon ranger sideseries, we have Lavanna.
* [[BlackMagicianGirl Jessica]] from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'' is a classic [[{{Tsundere}} Tsunde-redhead]] with the [[GirlishPigtails pigtails to match]]. She's also the games' [[FetishFuelStationAttendant richest]] [[{{Stripperific}} source]] of Grade-A [[MsFanservice fanservice]].
** Ashlynn from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'' is an earlier example of a FieryRedhead in the series and, like Jessica from ''VIII'', [[BlackMagicianGirl specializes in offensive magic]] and thus is also fiery.
** And Alena from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIV'', who (despite the pointy hat) isn't even a magic user, but instead a princess who would sooner punch her problems away than act like the stereotypical princess her father wants her to be.
* Tsubaki of ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' is a rare example of this trope being DoubleSubverted. She's a redhead, but for all of the first game (where she was an NPC) she was a studious, level-headed, rather pleasant ProperLady. Where the double subversion kicks in is when she is introduced as a playable character with her own story in the second game: she's actually a ClingyJealousGirl to her love-interest Jin. [[spoiler:It goes so far that not only does she become a vengeful, screaming maniac whenever someone gets too close to him, she actually tries to murder her friend Noel after BigBad Hazama convinces her that Noel stole away her chance to be with him, and she performs a FaceHeelTurn]].
* [[BlackMagicianGirl Aurora]] from ''VideoGame/BlackSigil'', [[PlayingWithFire with powers to match]]. So. Many. {{Fireballs}}.
* Asch from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' is rude, crude and liable to shout at everyone [[spoiler: Except Natalia.]] [[spoiler: He has his reasons, such as a clone replacing him and his family leaving him for dead because of it.]]
* Joanna Dark from ''VideoGame/PerfectDark'' and its prequel ''VideoGame/PerfectDarkZero''. Although, in the first game, her hair looks more brown than red, her personality is still ''FieryRedhead''.
* Subverted with Khalid in ''BaldursGate'', who is anything but fiery.
** Nalia in the sequel is a straightforward example, however.
* Cass in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' is a [[TheAlcoholic hard drinkin']], [[ClusterFBomb foul-mouthed]] spitfire of a woman who also happens to be mighty handy with a shotgun.
* ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' presents to us Zorne Sepperin, who's a short-tempered, impulsive, and moody little girl with love affections towards Graf Michael Sepperin (whom she regards as her father despite the absence of blood ties) and a knack for creating and throwing bombs [[{{Expy}} a la Bomberman]].
* Brooks in ''The Orion'' Conspiracy plays this trope straight to a T. She can cuss, she can fight, she can have sex, she can do a lot.
* ''HarvestMoon'' has various FieryRedHead's, though the most famous are the two Ann's.
* ''VideoGame/InThe1stDegree'' presents Ruby Garcia. She is a redhead (CaptainObvious), her first name refers to red, and she has the attitude. She is the girlfriend of the defendent James Tobin, and she wants to believe that he's not a murderer. In fact, asking the wrong questions (especially questions that make Tobin sound like a murderer) will get you an explosive outburst from her.
* [[MeaningfulName Ursula Unquenchablefire]], the Amazon leader in ''VideoGame/TheSpellcastingSeries''. [[InformedAbility Apparently quite the warrior and leader]], but not real big on foreplay.
* Liza, from ''Kaiser Knuckle''.
* From VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}, RED, Falcom, and Cave, though the latter is a subversion since her personality is cool as ice.
* The eponymous VideoGame/BattleGirl.
* VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe. A lot of his attacks are even fire related.
* Nadine from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'''s ''Point Lookout'' expansion pack.
* Mama from ''VideoGame/{{Cooking Mama}}'', despite looking like she's an innocent woman that loves to cook and not [[FireballEyeballs spoil her food]].
* Averted in ''StarCraft''. Sarah Kerrigan, with blood-red hair, has a [[IceQueen cool, calculating, and professional]] personality.
* Doug from ''VideoGame/RuneFactory4'' is a hot-tempered, red-headed dwarf. [[spoiler:But he's also capable of being cool and calculating, as his plot to get revenge on Ventuswill shows.]]
* The red-headed Gladiator from ''VideoGame/{{Sacred}}'' is the BigGuy among playable characters and a specialized mêlée fighter. According to the lines he occasionally shoots when fighting, he is also [[BloodKnight very enthousiastic to fight and kill]].
* In what could be another double subversion, ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' gives us Miss Fortune. She's red-headed and passionate... but falls more into the territory of cool-headed, teasing and seductive FemmeFatale MsFanservice, yet still has a competitive edge. That is, until she's told to use her ultimate skill, Bullet Time, in which she goes very fiery and let out a great laugh as she pelts you with bullets.
* Punk Giana from ''VideoGame/TheGreatGianaSisters'' and its modern counterparts.
* In the seventh installment of the ''VideoGame/DarkParables'', the Fairy Tale Detective meets Literature/{{Rapunzel}}'s betrothed, Prince Ross. He's a red-haired, red-eyed {{Hunk}} who wields both a FlamingSword and ElementalPowers of fire, and he's rather intense and comes across as more than a little angry. He's an extremely good person, however, and he loves Rapunzel devotedly.
* Captain Lorimette, in ''VideoGame/QueenAtArms'', is a regal and dignified LadyOfWar - but she's also very much this when her buttons are pressed.
* [[BigGood Mii Koryuji]] from ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' gets riled up by pretty much everyone. [[ActionGirl She also kicks lots of ass]] and is a [[TheCheerleader Cheerleader]] straight out of high school with GreenEyes.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/{{MAG ISA}}'' -- (subversion) [[http://mag-isa.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/119746 Claudita]] is a red-head but violence is always her last resort.
* Oasis from ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. She tends to alternate between extreme giddiness (usually when Torg acts nice to her) and extreme [[{{Yandere}} jealousy and rage]] (usually when something comes between her and Torg). {{Justified|Trope}} since these emotions were programmed into her by Dr. Steve. In addition, she's frequently accompanied by fire-related motifs such as ThePhoenix. It turns out that [[spoiler:"fiery" is literal; she's [[PlayingWithFire pyrokinetic]].]]
* Kestrel from ''Webcomic/QueenOfWands''.
* White Mage from ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater''.
* Catalina from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''. Her catchphrase is [[NoIndoorVoice "JACKASSES!"]], and when angered, she's loud enough to make [[DistantReactionShot aliens in outer space pause and ask "What was that noise?"]]
** Nanase. Just Nanase.
* Wildy San from ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures''.
* Georgia's best friend Rita in ''Webcomic/FineSometimesRain'' is a fiery redhead who is always ready to defend her friends.
* Princess Voluptua from ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob''.
* Surma from ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''. Her daughter, Antimony, also has some of this personality, but it's almost completely tempered by [[EmotionlessGirl her stoicism]]. Annie has an associated fire motif, since she has a talent for etherically manipulating fire with [[AmplifierArtifact the blinker stone]]. And it's eventually revealed [[spoiler:Surma and Annie are both descended from a fire elemental.]]
-->'''Reynardine:''' (To Antimony) Haha! Well, you may have everyone fooled with your stoic facade, but not me! You have a fire in you, child, a fire that belonged to your mother!
* Samantha from ''Webcomic/MoltenBlade'', both a [[PlayingWithFire fiery]] redhead and the intended meaning.
* Monica Villareal from ''Webcomic/WapsiSquare'', although in comparison to [[BadassNormal her friend Shelly]] or the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot golem girls]], she doesn't particularly stick out in terms of fieryness.
* Ratheel of ''Webcomic/{{Juathuur}}'' is a male example.
* Sixx from ''Webcomic/{{Collar 6}}''.
* [[http://www.thebeastlegion.com/issue-07-page-9-her-power/ Fyre]] from the ''Webcomic/TheBeastLegion'' fit's the trope perfectly. Not only does she have read hair but is a fire bending master.
* Trawn from ''Webcomic/ElectricWonderland'', the red-headed editor-in-chief of the ''Nettropolis Free Press'', expresses strong passions for news reporting and keeping her friends/employees safe, although she also has a bit of a temper sometimes.
* Miriam from ''Webcomic/OutThere''.
* Scarlet 'Red' Macrumble from ''Webcomic/GirlsInSpace''.
* Tailii from [[http://comicshortsonline.thecomicseries.com/ Comic Shorts]].
* Haley Starshine from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''. [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch "Sneak attack- BITCH!"]]
** Haley is a bit of a subversion: she suffers from considerable self-loathing and feels it necessary to hide her true feelings much of the time, believing people wouldn't like her if they really knew her.
* Bob in ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge''.
* Dave from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', sort of - he was frequently assumed to be by the fanbase (possibly even given a nod on one of Hussie's Formsprings), but after the reveal that [[spoiler: he and Rose are siblings]], the fanbase eventually agreed on blonde. Hussie's current stance on the issue is that Dave's hair color is whatever you want it to be, so he can still be a Fiery Redhead if you want.
* Alexander Hamilton from ''Webcomic/TheDreamer''.
* The eponymous main character of ''Webcomic/SarahZero'' is an example of this. Sarah is headstrong, loud, and the guitarist in a rock band.
* Layla from ''Webcomic/FarOutThere'' [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1027704/page-57-clothes-in-the-future-must-stay-really-clean/ most]] [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1071313/page-240-blow-up/ definitely]] [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1145154/page-332-calm-down-before-you-hurt-yourself/ qualifies]].
* Freija from ''Webcomic/TheSenkari'' is [[http://www.the-senkari.com/2010/12/22/12222010/ implied]] to be this.
* Anja Baker from ''Webcomic/RegularGuy''. Though she mostly keeps it on a low simmer, she is also the character least likely to put up with BS.
* Benny of ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' is a hot, redheaded [[CuteMonsterGirl troll]] with a very short temper. She happily beats the living daylights out of anyone that irritates her...and she's a ''priestess''.
* Dana, [[WholesomeCrossdresser "Cookie's Elle-Boy Rival"]] in the ''Webcomic/JetDream'' "It's Cookie!" spinoff [[RemixComic Remix Comics]]. He's modeled on Chili Storm from ''ComicBook/MillieTheModel''.
* Scar from ''Webcomic/{{Cordless}}'', to a T.
* SKO and TKO from ''Webcomic/ElfBlood'' are normally generally quite calm and reserved, even kindly. Get them in the same room together and watch their tempers flare.
* Marron, the eggroll/bondage emporium waitress turned artist, from ''Webcomic/VoodooWalrus'' is an example of this as her introduction involves threatening a co-worker with an iron maiden and then smashing a phone book into the skull of one of the main characters when he gets a little too blatant with his flirtations.
** Mac could be seen as another example of this, but it's been over a year since she was last depicted with her natural red hair color.
* Mal from ''Webcomic/HeadTrip''. She ''can'' be calm, rational, and logical, but she is definitely a Heroic Sociopath and a ''lot'' more fun when she's being violent to the stupid people.
* Ash and (to a lesser extent) Missi from ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}.''
* Red in ''Webcomic/RedsPlanet.'' A particular BerserkButton is being called Red.
* Melissa Thayer, a fox scientist from ''Webcomic/{{Outworld}}''. She's nice most of the time, but she has her moments.
* Nin Wah the red panda from ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'', who sports a fiery FurryFemaleMane and will [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2010/01/31/bad-choice-of-words/ destroy you]] if you press her BerserkButton.
* The titular character of ''Webcomic/{{Nimona}}'' ''definitely'' qualifies, despite being a sidekick to NobleDemon Ballister Blackheart, she's certainly more bloodthirsty and energetic than her superior. Being a shapeshifter, her red hair doubles as her MorphicResonance, giving her forms an overall red tone.
* Guy from ''Webcomic/TwoGuysAndGuy''. She once said only considers Wayne her friend because she ''only'' dislikes him mildly. She had to take happy pills for her anger issues. And she said she hoped Wayne was dead for using the word "literally" wrong among other things.
* Cinna Grossul from ''Webcomic/{{Pacificators}}.'' She [[LadySwearsALot swears like a sailor,]] and ''always'' [[FlippingTheBird flips off]] her arch-nemesis/teammate [[ProperLady Muneca Powell]]. To top it off, she has PlayingWithFire powers… and if she's not careful, she'll become a ''literal'' [[BurningWithAnger fiery]] [[IncrediblyLamePun redhead]].
* ''[[http://www.absolutehotsister.com/ Absolute Hot Sister]]'' has Ellen, the {{Deuteragonist}}. She's the young sister of the {{Protagonist}} Kevin who not-so-secretly has a [[BrotherSisterIncest crush]] on her and always does his not-so-best effort to resist his incestuous feelings.
* Tyler Dawn from ''[[{{Webcomic/Morphe}} morphE]]''. Long red hair, a hot temper and a pathological need to prove himself, despite being surrounded by people who are better than him in many respects.
* Richard Dark from "Webcomic/{{Xenospora}}" is one. The first time we see him is when he's yelling at his colleague.
* Breaker from ''Webcomic/{{Break}}'' is a gal with lovely crimson locks...who will not hesitate to pound you into the ground with [[KiAttacks Ki-Powered]] [[ActionGirl martial arts]] if you get on her nerves
* Main character Amaltea, in ''Webcomic/SwordPrincessAmaltea'', is temperamental, easily enraged and outspoken and has red hair to match her personality.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* In ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'', the rogue Vaetris has red hair and has quite a fiery personality.
* Aptly-nicknamed Emily "Phoenix" Shifter from ''Orderly Chaos'' is a sweeter, girlier version who still packs plenty of passion into a little package.
* Fireball of the WhateleyUniverse. Red hair, short temper. Oh, and that fire manifestation power. And she's AxCrazy.
** Powerful mage Fey counts too. [[BewareTheNiceOnes Do]] ''[[BewareTheNiceOnes not]]'' [[BewareTheNiceOnes piss her off]]. Plus, when it comes to fire, no one else has what she has.
* The Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse had Heatwave, a fire-wielding mutant SuperHero. When she turns on her powers, her red hair [[FlamingHair becomes fiery in the most literal sense of the word]].
* There are quite a lot of redheads in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'', and a fair portion of them fit. Examples include [[AntiHero Adam Dodd]], [[SmallNameBigEgo Jimmy Brennan]], [[KnightInSourArmor Aileen Borden]], [[ActionGirl Bridget Connolly]], and [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain Rob Jenkins]].
* Fanart for ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' always has Tex with red hair. With her black armor, that's [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver the only logical choice]].
** Also, [[spoiler:Agent Carolina of Project Freelancer.]]
* Pat from ''WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay''
* Faun and Naole in ''{{Tasakeru}}''.
* Deirdre Rees from [[http://gaius0artemis.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4lwgxe Night Hunters]]. Timid, but has potential.
* Creator/AllisonPregler aka Lupa from WebSite/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, whose GenkiGirl personality dips into [[PsychopathicWomanchild deranged]] territory in crossovers. She's since dropped the costumes and funny voices since leaving TGWTG.
* Lizzie Bennet of TheLizzieBennetDiaries, especially when she gets worked up over the interpersonal drama dominating over her life.
* Rya from Bonus Stage.
* Lyphia from ''Literature/MageLife'' leaves the protagonist tongue-tied the first time he sees her, and later rebukes him when he interrupts her mid-speech.
* Josh Hadley, co-host of ''WebOriginal/{{Radiodrome}}'', ''Lost in the Static'', and, most appropriately, ''What the Fuck?!?''. Best described as the [[Franchise/GreenLantern Guy Gardner]] of internet radio.
* When [[WebVideo/{{yourchonny}} Chonny]] is acting as his ill-tempered mother for his videos, he dons a short, scraggly red wig.
* Main character Austin of ''Literature/{{Antlers Colorado}}'' is generally stoic, but has been shown to have quite a proclivity for fighting when provoked. WordOfGod says that he only dyes his hair red, though.

* ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'': Brittany. it's not sure if she's redhead, but DAMN, she's fiery.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'':
** Gwen fits this trope, but in the {{Time Skip}}ped sequel ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'', she seems [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks to have outgrown it]], unless you hurt her loved ones. That's when things start blowing up.
** Ben's Rath form is a FieryRedhead over most of his body, being an anthro tiger. He's also UnstoppableRage personified.
* Nonny from WesternAnimation/BubbleGuppies is an inversion. He's actually quite the [[TheStoic stoic.]]
%%* Ace [=McCloud=] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Centurions}}''.
%%* Atlanta from ''ClassOfTheTitans''. Theresa, to a lesser extent.
%%* Numbuh 86 in ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'', bordering on EvilRedhead.
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'': Averted by Jasmine "Jazz" Fenton. She wasn't a spitfire. She was a stuck-up (but caring) know-it-all. But her mother, Maddie, on the other hand...[[note]] but she's got brown hair; in fact, most fans think Jazz and her brother are adopted.[[/note]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'': Quinn Morgendorffer, when she gets really worked up. Usually suverted though, since she acts more like a DumbBlonde, despite having orange red hair.
* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'':
** Darkwing's adopted daughter Gosalyn. She is fierce and spirited and has red hair.
** Averted by the show's other notable red-haired character, Launchpad, who is a GentleGiant.
* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'': Dexter's family is split evenly between this and the DumbBlonde stereotype; he and his mother are fiery redheads and his sister and dad are happy-go-lucky yellow-haired [[TheDitz ditzes]].
%%* Beebe and Roger (and, at times, Judy) in ''{{Doug}}''.
* Averted by Sheila the Thief, of the WesternAnimation/DungeonsAndDragons cartoon, for she is not as much a boisterous fighter as her blonde little brother, Bobby...or her BlackBestFriend, Dianah.
* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'':
** Sarah is violent, screams a lot and has a HairTriggerTemper.
** Lee Kanker is a reckless, HotBlooded bully who also qualifies as EvilRedhead.
%%* Vicky from ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents''.
%%* Lois Griffin from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.
%%* Kyle from ''FanboyAndChumChum''.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'': Frankie, as Mr. Herriman and Bloo learn when they push her too far.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'':
** Fox. More determined than hot-tempered, however.
** Demona. As hot-tempered as her hair colour implies.
* ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'': Peg and Pistol form a mother-daughter pair of this. Peg is quite frightening when angry and is very assertive about her [[OnlySaneMan sensible opinions]] (unlike her ShrinkingViolet[=/=]ExtremeDoormat [[NoRespectGuy son]]) to the point she's actually able to control her otherwise bossy and dominating husband. Pistol is a GenkiGirl and a BrattyHalfPint.
%%* In ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', this is played straight with Manly Dan, but averted with his daughter, Wendy.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/{{Grojband}}'': Laney Penn bonus points for catching fire every so often.
* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'': Ernie Potts is a demolition man [[TheNapoleon Napoleon]] with a HairTriggerTemper. Though he is mostly bald, the hair he has left is red.
* Pepper Potts from ''IronManArmoredAdventures'' is a big time FieryRedhead and GenkiGirl.
%%* Jane from ''JaneAndTheDragon''.
%%* Saffi on ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' is this because she's CrazyAwesome.
%%* Jessie Bannon from ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures''.
%%* Shayera Hol/Hawkgirl from ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'': Kim has incredible drive and passion. Ironically, Animology calls these traits blue fox.
%%* The V.E.N.O.M warrior, Vanessa Warfield, from ''WesternAnimation/{{MASK}}''...although you may notice the dark streak on her hair.
%%* Kiva from ''WesternAnimation/{{Megas XLR}}''.
* ''WesternAnimation/MikeLuAndOg'' averted by Mike. While being a sports loving red haired girl, she is acutally calm and rather laid-back, compared to some shorter-tempered brunette princess named Lu. Though there are a few times when she's pushed over the edge like in "Sultans of Swat" and "To Serve Lu".
%%* Abraham Kane from ''{{WesternAnimation/Motorcity}}'', also an EvilRedhead.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** Rainbow Dash is a {{tomboy}} with tons of attitude, and though her [[MulticoloredHair mane has enough colours to fit her name]], her bangs are warmer colors (red, orange, and yellow) and are more prominent, while the cooler colors (green, blue, and purple) are mostly hidden behind her neck.
** Sunset Shimmer is ambitious, testy, sarcastic, hot-tempered, and red-haired -- although admittedly her hair's about an even mix of red and yellow.
%%* Teddy in ''MyLittlePonyTales''.
* ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn'': Pepper Ann Pearson, though she's more spacy and neurotic than fiery. In the uniform episode she admits that it's auburn, which other characters agree to once she tries to take credit for being the trope.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': Candance. However her long hair is more orange than red and is a overactive girl.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'':
** Subverted with Gretchen, as she's pretty easygoing, unless you make her ''really'' mad. She and raven-haired Spinelli actually swap their normal hair tropes: Gretchen's the brainy one (who ''was'' going to have black hair originally), while Spinelli's the fiery one. Played straight with Ashley Q.
** As flashbacks show us, Miss Finster was a redhead, and still fiery.
%%* Mackenzie Benders in ''WesternAnimation/RocketPower''.
* ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'': Bev Bighead can become this at times, mostly when she's irritated with Ed.
* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': [[ViolentGlaswegian The Scotsman]] is a loud, brutish warrior (and about the closest thing Jack has to a friend). Then there's his wife, who's even louder and more bad tempered than he is.
%%* Talon from ''WesternAnimation/SkeletonWarriors''.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** Kyle is this, often instigated as a result of [[{{Jerkass}} Cartman's]] antisemitism, racism, or greed. This can lead to his own {{Jerkass}} tendencies, approaching KnightTemplar at times. His mother, too, is a full blown fiery Jewish KnightTemplar redhead.
** Darryl Weathers, leader of an angry band of hicks bent on driving away the job-stealing "Goobacks" who immigrated from the future.
-->''"THEY TOOK OUR JOBS!"''
* ''WesternAnimation/SpidermanAndHisAmazingFriends'': Taken almost as literally as one possibly can with Firestar (she has brown hair in her human form).
* ''StarWarsTheCloneWars'': Death Watch member (and [[spoiler:Duchess Satine's sister]]) Bo-Katan [[spoiler: Kryze]]. Even though she is usually calm, she somewhat fits as a FieryRedhead due to being a rather aggressive character. Also is an EvilRedhead.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/StuntDawgs'': Sizzle, especially since she uses explosives!
%%* Volcana from ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''.
%%* He may be a minor character, but Johnny Sunspot is without a doubt the resident fiery redhead of SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo.
%%* Kimmy the [[TheCheerleader cheerleader]] LovableAlphaBitch from ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan''.
* ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'': If a headband counts as hair, Raphael certainly qualifies. Subverted in the comics, though, as all the turtles have red headbands.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': Starfire doesn't have the fiery temper ([[BewareTheNiceOnes unless you hurt her friends]]), but she's very passionate and [[GenkiGirl energetic]]. She even flies using "righteous fury!"
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTeddyRuxpin'': Young HotBlooded Prince Arin, whom the others often have to restrain from going off half-cocked charging into ''everything''. (Though his red hair is usually hidden underneath a helmet.)
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans'': Tyrone is usually a pretty mellow DeadpanSnarker, but he's been shown to have quite a temper in some episodes, like "Best Clowns in Town" and "Sinbad Sails Alone".
* ''TheBotsMaster'': Blitzy Zulander is easily the more hot-headed of the Zulander siblings, preferring full-on assaults against the Corp. She's also the main pilot of the combining ''HumongousMecha'' Jungle Fiver.
* ''TheDreamstone'': Amberly is usually [[WomenAreWiser rather level headed and soft spoken]]; however, her temper flares immensely at times. [[PityTheKidnapper The Urpneys know this]] [[CuteBruiser first hand]].
%%* Every woman in the Slaghoople bloodline in ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' -- Wilma's mother, Wilma, and Pebbles.
%%* Mallory [=McMallard=] from ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyDucks''.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'':
** Averted by calm, rational, redheaded Blossom. The 'fiery' one though is the brunette-haired Buttercup. Although she insists that she IS a fiery redhead in one of the interview promos for ''TheMovie''.
** Played straight with Princess Morbucks, who throws a tantrum when she doesn't get what she wants.
* Headstrong, passionate, and excitable Ray Stantz becomes one in ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' and its 90s successor ''WesternAnimation/ExtremeGhostbusters'' thanks to an AdaptationDyeJob (his hair is brown [Dan Aykroyd's natural hair color] in the movies). Ditto the Ghostbusters' SassySecretary Janine Melnitz, though to a lesser extent as her hair was already a reddish-brown color in the first movie.
%%* Doyle from ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays''.
%%* Groundskeeper Willie from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'': Sassette was this before Papa Smurf changed her into a real Smurf. That's where [[MeaningfulName she gets her name]]. Averted in the comic books, where she is more chatty than bratty when she was first created.
* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'': Otto is generally outgoing and friendly towards everyone around him, he doesn't appreciate it when adults are mean to him or do something incredibly stupid. Sometimes, the attitude towards these types of people are just plain spiteful. He will often argue and lose his temper all together a few times. Sometimes, he will work out a plan that has the sole purpose of simply humiliating someone, let alone get a mission completed.
%%* Izzy on the ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Total Drama]]'' series. In ''Revenge of the Island'', the normally level-headed Zoey can get this way [[InvokedTrope when provoked]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'':
** Subverted since the redhead Sam is a BadassBookworm and the brains of the group.
** However, Gabriella seems to be more spitfire than her daughter mentioned above.
* ''{{Transformers| Generation 1}}'':
** Cliffjumper is a hotheaded little red Autobot who is extremely paranoid and eager to blindly charge into a fight.
** Ironhide is a crusty old veteran, but is also eager to wade into a good fight. Has a red 'helmet' and main body.
** Hot Rod is brash, impetuous, and outspoken as a young Autobot, and retains a primarily red/magenta color. Averted later as he becomes solidly brick red as Rodimus Prime, but also becomes more morose, brooding, and jaded.
** Warpath is a shouty BoisterousBruiser with no subtlety and a love of combat, and turns into a maroon tank.
%%* Bloom from ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'', to some extent.
%%* WesternAnimation/YosemiteSam. Quite obviously.
* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'': Speedy, aka Red Arrow, was [[RageAgainstTheMentor ticked]] [[BerserkButton off]] at constantly being ComicBook/GreenArrow's sidekick and set off on his own. Despite this, he genuinely cares about his friends and looks after them. In secret.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Ruby is very much this, having a red tint in her hair along with being red overall. She is ''very'' HotBlooded, to the point of her evaporating an entire pool because of her anger.
* ''WesternAnimation/RainbowBrite'': Red Butler has orange hair and a red color motif. He is a headstrong boy.

[[folder:Pinball]]
* Red Hot from ''Pinball/BanzaiRun''.
* Jean Grey[=/=]Phoenix from ''[[Pinball/XMenStern X-Men (Stern)]]''

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' gives us [[http://magiccards.info/m10/en/132.html Chandra]] [[http://magiccards.info/zen/en/120.html Nalaar]], a young and impulsive [[PlayingWithFire pyromancer]] who is as short-tempered as she is dangerous. This makes her, both figuratively and literally, a [[IncrediblyLamePun fiery]] redhead on two levels--both in that her powers involve fire, and that [[FlamingHair her hair flares]] every time she activates her powers.
* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' TabletopRPG (Last Unicorn Games) supplement "Planetary Adventures". The adventure "The Enemy You Know" has a redheaded female engineer, who "can be hot-tempered and impulsive" and has a "tendency to charge into situations". She overhears a Vulcan woman speak a phrase in Romulan and confronts her, calling her a "dirty Romulan spy".
* The redhead Helena Daphnotarthius, a cleric of the Immortal Valerias, in the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' ''Dawn of the Emperors'' boxed set. She was "fiery in anger, in romance, in the pursuit of things she wants." She wanted to live "life to its fullest and promote the questionable virtues of reckless abandon and thoughtless enjoyment".
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has Angron, Primarch of the World Eaters. After he becomes a Daemon Prince, he's a literal redhead.
* ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'' supplement ''Cthulhu Companion'', adventure "The Rescue". The {{NPC}} Dr. Dare has red hair and "...his temper gets the best of him sometimes."
* Leona the pyrokinetic in ''TabletopGame/PsionicsTheNextStageInHumanEvolution'' is this, both literally and figuratively. The Firestarter archetype is even paired with a picture of her.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Rena Ryuuguu from ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' keeps her fire well-concealed for the most part, but it's there.
-->'''Rena:''' When Keiichi-san is angry, he's twice [as scary as Oryou].\\
'''Keiichi:''' However, when Rena is angry she's twice as scary again.
* Battler Ushiromiya from ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi''.
** His half-sister Ange is an aversion of this trope.
* Aoko [[spoiler:and Akiha]] from ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' and '' VideoGame/MeltyBlood''. Aoko's hair is probably dyed, as it was brown when she was younger. Aoko is one of the strongest mages in the world who enjoys messing with people and [[StuffBlowingUp blowing stuff up]]. [[spoiler:Akiha's hair is normally a severe black, as befitting an {{ojou}}, but it TurnsRed when she consciously or unconsciously calls upon her demonic blood to power up. She fits this trope well, since she gets redder the more fiery she gets, and gets more fiery the redder she gets. She's still in control until the point that [[RedEyesTakeWarning her eyes turn red]] too, which is the sign that she's gone insane.]]
** Akiha once claimed that the redness was her "true" hair color, [[spoiler:but only in the sense that her "true" nature was demonic -- she was being rather negative at the time. Her cousin, Kouma, has more demon blood than she does and still normally has black hair, and he's not the kind of guy who would bother with disguises.]]
* Kevan, the Earl of Io from ''VisualNovel/{{Long Live The Queen}}''. His character portrait has a perpetual scowl and he's out for blood in both of his in-game appearances.
* Jett in ''VisualNovel/{{SC2VN}}''

A Fiery Redhead is a red-haired character who is strong, [[HotBlooded passionate]], outgoing, usually outspoken, and (if a love interest) often female. She has a big personality and she's not afraid to use it. Whatever you do, don't get on her bad side, or there will be hell to pay. (Especially if PersonalityPowers are present: she likes PlayingWithFire. Thus, in a FourTemperamentEnsemble, expect her to be Choleric.) She will be unladylike unless it's the case of a redheaded SpiritedYoungLady. She might be OneOfTheBoys, a {{tomboy}}, or a [[TheLadette lad-ette]]. [[HeroesWantRedheads Heroes do like redheads]] after all.

[[folder:Literature]]
* In ''[[Literature/{{Dragons}} The Last Dragon Chronicles]]'' Lucy fits this persona perfectly, though it becomes blaringly obvious during [[TeensAreMonsters her teenage years]].
* In the Literature/{{Branion}} series by Fiona Patton, the royal family of an alternate Britain is literally this. The sovereigns are the Jesus-style avatars of a fire god, and they commonly have red hair. They also have tempers, which is not surprising given that effectively having a fire god inside you is [[RoyallyScrewedUp not good for your mental stability]]. Justified by the presence in their family tree of [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Danes, Welsh and Irish]].
* Literature/GemmaDoyle and her mother.
* The ''Ashtown Burials'' series, by N.D. Wilson, has the reddish-brown haired Diana Boone. She doesn't have a particularly quick temper, but she is a skilled warrior and ace pilot, and you don't want to be on the wrong side of her when she does get angry.
* In ''Literature/ShamanOfTheUndead'', Zofia, aptly nicknamed Redhead, has HairTriggerTemper, especially when around [[TheStoic Brittle]] or [[ActionSurvivor Ida]], and is annoyed when others aren't as professional about their jobs as she is.
* Practically every female character in the novels of Creator/RobertAHeinlein. Even a few of the male characters qualify.
* [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Mara Jade Skywalker]], Luke's wife and DeadpanSnarker extraordinaire. She can get [[MamaBear very nasty]] if you hit her BerserkButton.
** As is her son, Ben Skywalker. The striking similarities between the two (particularly their personalities) are brought up fairly often in profic, especially in ''[[Literature/LegacyOfTheForce Sacrifice]]'', and a LOT in fanfic. To be honest, probably the only notable physical feature he inherited from Luke are his blue eyes.
* Ygritte from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. All redheads are believed to be "kissed by fire" in the wildling culture and have a reputation for spirit. Rickon Stark inherited the Tully red hair and is the most expressive of the Stark children. And on the averted side, you have Sansa, Catelyn, and Melisandre, who express their anger in [[BewareTheNiceOnes different]] ways...
* ''Literature/HarryPotter''
** Ginny Weasley, as well as Molly and the rest of the Weasleys. A more mellow example is Percy, and he's regarded as a stick-in-the-mud.
** Harry's mother, Lily, was also like this, mostly around James before they ended up hooking up. Hmm, maybe the Potter men have a thing for fiery redheads.
* Literature/CiaphasCain '''HERO OF THE IMPERIUM''''s comrades Colonel Kasteen and Trooper (later Corporal) Magot fit this trope to a T, Magot almost to the point of being a PsychoLesbian. And, no, the two redheads are not a couple.
* C. L. Moore's Literature/JirelOfJoiry.
* Calliope in John Barnes's ''Literature/OneForTheMorningGlory''.
* Annie, aka Naughty Nan, in TheFilmOfTheBook, at least, of ''[[LittleWomen Little Men]]''.
* ''Literature/AnneOfGreenGables'':
** Justified with Anne Shirley whose temper was at its fieriest when she was teased about her red hair (being one of the few characters whose fire is connected to their coloring). She chewed out the neighborhood busybody and also responded to being called "Carrots" by breaking her slate over a schoolmate's head. Nobody ever teased her about her red hair again, after the social snubbing Gilbert got for five or so years. Ironically, they end up marrying. [[note]] It's ironic for Anne. That was Gilbert's goal [[LoveAtFirstPunch since the beginning]]. [[/note]]
** Anne never quite gets over her dislike of her red hair. She didn't even like it when her ''children'' inherited it. When Jem is born and the nurse tells her his hair will be red, Gilbert reports to Marilla that "Anne is furious with her, and I'm tickled to death!"
* ''[[PrydainChronicles The Chronicles of Prydain]]''
** Princess Eilonwy is the extremely temperamental {{Tsundere}} ActionGirl whose temper is feared even by her friends, and especially her [[WellExcuseMePrincess love interest]].
** The boisterous King Smoit, who is jolly and personable with his friends, but unleashes a warrior's temper on those who anger him.
* Dylan Marvil from ''Literature/TheClique''.
* Aviendha (and, to a lesser extent, all Aiel women) from the [[Literature/TheWheelOfTime Wheel of Time]] series behave like this. They are quite proficient with the spears and knives they threaten men who make unwanted advances with.
* Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's daughter Longstocking, from the ''Literature/PippiLongstocking'' series (and subsequent adaptations). Don't mess with this [[CuteBruiser tank of a little girl]].
* In Robert Graves' ''King Jesus'', Jesus has red hair, that being one of the eight "signs of royalty".
* Herrenna the Henna-Haired Harridan, a side character in ''Discworld/TheLightFantastic'' has red hair (per her title) and absolutely no patience or pity for either Rincewind or Twoflower. Oh, and she has a [[{{BFS}} very big sword]].
* "Red" from ''Literature/GoodOmens''.
** Also, Pepper.
* Alanna of Trebond of ''Literature/SongOfTheLioness'' (the first book in the ''Literature/TortallUniverse'') has bright red hair and a temper to match. Her squire later remarks how she's known for her sharp edges--sword, knife, and tongue.
* Ditto with Tris in Tammy's ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'' series. She's very prickly from years of verbal abuse and abandonment. She does eventually warm up to her new friends, but she's still quick to sarcasm and doesn't tolerate fools gladly.
* Talea in Creator/AlanDeanFoster's ''Literature/{{Spellsinger}}''.
* Ce'Nedra from David Eddings's ''Literature/{{Belgariad}}''. Not just her husband Belgarion, not just their royal court, the ''entire kingdom'' of Riva is focused on keeping Queen Ce'Nedra happy. Because the alternative is just too grisly to contemplate.
* Renn from ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfAncientDarkness''.
* Squirrelflight of ''Literature/WarriorCats'' would qualify as a Fiery Redpelt.
** Her mother, Sandstorm, was one as well.
** Red, who defies her father's wishes to pursue a romance with her [[StarCrossedLovers Star-Crossed Lover]].
* Maedhros, Amrod, and Amras from Creator/JRRTolkien's ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' are the only elves to be described as redheads who fit the personality type. They're fierce, rash, more violent than is really healthy, and not particularly wise or patient... but then so are all their darker-haired siblings. A lot of fans assume their mother Nerdanel's also redheaded, thought the author only ever said her ''father'' is, and both of their personalities are the complete opposite: calm, soft-spoke, patient, and wise. They also had the sense not to join the rebellion of the Noldor, which is why they're still alive.
* Karen in ''Literature/TheThreeWorldsCycle''. Specifically in the first quartet, where she appears as a main character. She takes on Rulke, for Io's sake, and harasses every main character through the whole quartet. And she just happens to be described as having "extremely fiery red hair"...
* Sarah in ''Literature/TalesOfAnMazingGirl''is pretty firey in the right circumstances, if she often keeps her sass to herself.
* Jennsen Rahl in the Literature/SwordOfTruth series. In-story, red hair is often (falsely) stereotyped as the hair color of ''witches'' among the blond-haired D'Haran purebloods, rather than indicative of personality.
* [[TheChick April O'Brien]] of ''Literature/{{Everworld}}'', who also has GreenEyes and an Irish ancestry, perhaps to sharpen the contrast between her and [[SiblingYinYang her half-sister]], who is a [[BlondesAreEvil blond]], [[LonersAreFreaks antisocial]] EmotionlessGirl.
* Ysabeau Wilce's ''Crackpot Hall'' series has both male and female examples with Hotspur and [[TheButcher Butcher Brakespeare]] respectively.
* Randle Patrick [=McMurphy=], in ''Literature/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest''.
* Karen from ''Literature/DragonsInOurMidst''.
* Red in Creator/AaronAllston's ''Literature/GalateaIn2D''; not only does Penny play WomenAreWiser in their BattleCouple, when Penny is dying and only their boss can save her, Red clearly has to fight to keep begging him to do so instead of attacking him.
* Terry Brooks' [[Literature/{{Shannara}} Voyage of the Jerle Shannara]] introduces Rue Meridian, who steals airships single-handedly and kills lizard-men, and you had better not tell her she can't.
* Wisty of ''Literature/WitchAndWizard'' is a FieryRedhead who can actually ''light herself on fire''.
* Bronwyn in ''Bronwyn's Bane''. Living with a serious curse increases her anger management issues.
* Clementine from ''The Liberation of Clementine Tipton''.
* Maggy Mulligan from ''Faraway Dream''.
* Gwen Jones from the ''Cherry Ames'' mysteries.
* Madeline from ''Madeline''.
* The Fire-witches in the Literature/EnchantedForestChronicles deserve special mention: when they get angry enough (which is often), their hair ''explodes''.
* Sioned, Sionell, and Feylin, among others of Melanie Rawn's ''Literature/DragonPrince'' and ''Literature/DragonStar'' trilogies.
* Margot Maynard in Elinor M Brent-Dyer's Literature/ChaletSchool series. Her hair is constantly described as 'reddish-gold' and she has an absolutely rotten temper, which she blames on her 'demon'. She tries to control it, but it often gets the better of her, culminating in her nearly killing a girl with a bookend in ''The Chalet School Triplets''. Her cousin Sybil Russell also qualifies, at least as a child, until an accident with a kettle and her younger sister [[BreakTheHaughty has a drastic effect on her personality]].
* ''Literature/IRobot'' has engineer Mike Donovan, described as possessed of perpetually unkempt red hair, a short temper, and a generally HotBlooded personality, in contrast to his calmer dark-haired work partner Gregory Powell.
* Felicity of the Literature/AmericanGirlsCollection is a spunky, spritely colonial girl, full of energy and independence.
* Princess Elizabeth of Literature/TheRoyalDiaries' ''Elizabeth I: Red Rose of the House of Tudor'' can swear up a storm when she wants to.
* The main character of the Literature/DearAmerica book ''A Coal Miner's Bride: The Diary of Anetka Kaminska'' complains about everything about her looks except her red hair. At one point, she suddenly remembered that she was her mother's fiery redhead and started yelling at her ungrateful husband with a list of the things she does for him.
* 'Red' Kelly and his sister Kelly Kelly in the ''Literature/YoungBond novels''. In fact, the whole Kelly clan might qualify.
* 'Red' Blaze from the Civil War and Floating Outfit novels of Creator/JTEdson. Blaze is the most hotheaded and impetuous of Edson's heroes.
* Literature/InDeath series: Feeney has ginger hair. He may seem rather calm, but he can be explosive when he's angry.
* Literature/TimeScout: Margo Smith.
* Rachel Elizabeth Dare in ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''. Although [[StealthPun it's never]] [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]], even her initials spell [[MeaningfulName R.E.D.]]
* Literature/SisterhoodSeries by Creator/FernMichaels: just ask Kathryn Lucas and Maggie Spritzer. They have red hair and the attitude to match!
* In "Nobody Here But—", a short story by Creator/IsaacAsimov, protagonist Cliff Anderson is deeply in love with his red-haired girlfriend Mary Ann, but does not quite have the courage to ask her to marry him. Throughout the story Cliff talks about how wonderful Mary Ann is, but always amends his statement with "but she does have red hair;" she [[InvokedTrope acts feisty and aggressive because that is how girls with red hair act]].
* In Tom Robbins' ''Still Life With Woodpecker'', in addition to the two red-haired protagonists (FallenPrincess Leigh Cherry and {{Outlaw}} Bernard Mickey Wrangle), there's a involved sideplot/conspiracy theory around the extraterrestrial origins of redheads.
** In Asimov's Literature/LuckyStarr series, Lucky's sidekick John Bigman Jones has pale red hair, a short temper, and a generally emotional nature. Lucky, on the other hand, is calm and brown-haired.
* The princesses of ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'' are all noted for having red hair, referred to as "the royal red" at a few points. Each princess has a different personality and none are exactly mercurial, but strength and passion are part of all of them.
* [[RedheadedHero Cord MaKiy]] from the ''Literature/{{ColSec Trilogy}}'', although it's somewhat mitigated by his introversion.
* Jessie in ''High Society'' by Creator/BenElton. Her hair colour (dark auburn/reddish-brown) is referred to only once, but combined with her personality she is an obvious example of this trope.
* Kaylana the druid in ''Literature/{{Villains by Necessity}}''. Living up to the trope by answering any attempts to approach her with a staff knocked over the poor man's head.
* Prince Bryan in ''Literature/SummersAtCastleAuburn'' is every negative stereotype associated with red hair.
* Clary Fray from ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'', is easily upset and often lashes out at people.
* The main protagonist of the ''Literature/CronusChronicles'', Charlotte, is the grumpy variety.
* ''Creator/SimonaAhrnstedt'' gives us Beatrice Löwenström in her debut novel ''Literature/{{Overenskommelser}}''. She's intelligent, competent and assertive. But alas, many people in this era (the 1880s) prefer quiet and subservient women. And being at the mercy of her abusive uncle, who bullies her into a marriage with a man, who treats women like dirt under his shoes, she finds that out the hard way. But she's not afraid to call her oppressors out on what creeps they are, even if that only makes them even angrier with her...
** Averted with Beata Jensdotter in "De skandalösa". Despite being a redhead, she's less fiery than the brunette protagonist Magdalena.
* ''[[Literature/AMagesPower A Mage's Power]]'': The Bladi Clan is PlayingWithATrope. They all have red hair as a dominant trait but their temperments vary.
** Basilard is only firece in battle. Otherwise he's mellow.
** Mia is closer to RoseHairedSweetie with her kind nature
** Raki is a rude and aggressive dual wielder.
* Rose Hathaway from ''Literature/VampireAcademy'' is a brunette with some tinges of red in her hair, described to be extremely strong-willed, stubborn, passionate, feisty, fiery, proud and impulsive.
* Inverted with Fiona from ''Literature/TheGiver''. She is said to be calm and serene from Jonas.
* Kristen Börstrom from ''Literature/{{MARZENA}}'' is a Swedish redhead Ex-Cop turned into super killer assassin. Although red is not her natural color, it does seem to match her temper.
* Chloe Wentworth from ''The Lost Sisters of Pleasant Valley'' novels.
* Katelyn, the spunky GranolaGirl from ''Literature/{{Insupu}}''.
* ''Literature/MidnightsChildren'' has Saleem's sister the Brass Monkey, who got her nickname because she's one of these. She is also ''literally'' fiery, in that she lights shoes on fire to get attention. Her hair darkens to brown when she turns nine, and she subsequently mellows out a bit.
* Iris of ''Literature/TheFirstDwarfKing'' definitely counts. She's an ActionGirlfriend to the hero, Jani.
** Averted by [[TheHighQueen Aristomache]]; while she's a capable LadyOfWar, she acts calm and reserved most of the time.
* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': The female District 10 Tribute in ''Catching Fire'', being the only redhead of all the tributes.

They also had the sense not to join the rebellion of the Noldor, which is why they're still alive.
* Karen in ''Literature/TheThreeWorldsCycle''. Specifically in the first quartet, where she appears as a main character. She takes on Rulke, for Io's sake, and harasses every main character through the whole quartet. And she just happens to be described as having "extremely fiery red hair"...
* Sarah in ''Literature/TalesOfAnMazingGirl''is pretty firey in the right circumstances, if she often keeps her sass to herself.
* Jennsen Rahl in the Literature/SwordOfTruth series. In-story, red hair is often (falsely) stereotyped as the hair color of ''witches'' among the blond-haired D'Haran purebloods, rather than indicative of personality.

* [[TheChick April O'Brien]] Sara]] [[TheLancer Yuki]] of ''Literature/{{Everworld}}'', who also ''Anime/{{Dancougar}}'' has GreenEyes literal red hair and an Irish ancestry, perhaps to sharpen the contrast between her and [[SiblingYinYang her half-sister]], who is a [[BlondesAreEvil blond]], [[LonersAreFreaks antisocial]] EmotionlessGirl.
* Ysabeau Wilce's ''Crackpot Hall'' series has both male and female examples with Hotspur and [[TheButcher Butcher Brakespeare]] respectively.

* Wisty of ''Literature/WitchAndWizard'' is a FieryRedhead who can actually ''light herself on fire''.
* Bronwyn in ''Bronwyn's Bane''. Living with a serious curse increases her anger management issues.
* Clementine from ''The Liberation of Clementine Tipton''.
* Maggy Mulligan from ''Faraway Dream''.
* Gwen Jones from the ''Cherry Ames'' mysteries.
* Madeline from ''Madeline''.
* The Fire-witches in the Literature/EnchantedForestChronicles deserve special mention: when they get angry enough (which is often), their hair ''explodes''.
* Sioned, Sionell, and Feylin, among others of Melanie Rawn's ''Literature/DragonPrince'' and ''Literature/DragonStar'' trilogies.
* Margot Maynard in Elinor M Brent-Dyer's Literature/ChaletSchool series. Her hair is constantly described as 'reddish-gold' and
Commmander. [[spoiler: We find out she has an absolutely rotten temper, which she blames on her 'demon'. She tries to control it, but it often gets the better of her, culminating in her nearly killing a girl with a bookend in ''The Chalet School Triplets''. Her cousin Sybil Russell also qualifies, at least as a child, until an accident with a kettle and her younger sister [[BreakTheHaughty has a drastic effect on her personality]].
* ''Literature/IRobot'' has engineer Mike Donovan, described as possessed of perpetually unkempt red hair, a short temper, and a generally HotBlooded personality, in contrast to his calmer dark-haired work partner Gregory Powell.
* Felicity of the Literature/AmericanGirlsCollection is a spunky, spritely colonial girl, full of energy and independence.
* Princess Elizabeth of Literature/TheRoyalDiaries' ''Elizabeth I: Red Rose of the House of Tudor'' can swear up a storm when she wants to.
* The main character of the Literature/DearAmerica book ''A Coal Miner's Bride: The Diary of Anetka Kaminska'' complains about everything about her looks except her red hair. At one point, she suddenly remembered that she was her mother's fiery redhead and started yelling at her ungrateful husband with a list of the things she does for him.
* 'Red' Kelly and his sister Kelly Kelly in the ''Literature/YoungBond novels''. In fact, the whole Kelly clan might qualify.
* 'Red' Blaze from the Civil War and Floating Outfit novels of Creator/JTEdson. Blaze is the most hotheaded and impetuous of Edson's heroes.
* Literature/InDeath series: Feeney has ginger hair. He may seem rather calm, but he can be explosive when he's angry.
* Literature/TimeScout: Margo Smith.
* Rachel Elizabeth Dare in ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''. Although [[StealthPun it's never]] [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]], even her initials spell [[MeaningfulName R.E.D.
[[PlayingWithFire fire powers]] later also.]]
* Literature/SisterhoodSeries by Creator/FernMichaels: just ask Kathryn Lucas Rika Nonaka from ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' started as an [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Arrogant Kung Fu Girl]], and Maggie Spritzer. They through all the series she remained as a Tomboy ActionGirl always willing to fight.
* ''LightNovel/DirtyPair'' has Kei, who makes up the {{tomboy}} half of the LovelyAngels and is known for her hair-trigger temper and her itchier trigger finger.
* Terrence, the hero of ''Manga/{{Dreamland}}'', subverts this: he is a redhead and has fiery powers, but is nonchalant and not really eager to fight. [[{{Jerkass}} Eve]], however, plays the trope straight.
* Lucy from ''Manga/ElfenLied'' is a [[AxCrazy homicidally]] FieryRedhead (or more specifically, hot pink head). She could also be counted as an EvilRedhead.
* ''Anime/ElHazardTheMagnificentWorld'': As the great Fire Priestess of Mt. Moldune, [[AmbiguouslyBrown Shayla Shayla]] is a literal example, whose powers intensify, to match her disposition. Meaning, the angrier, or more excited she becomes during a fight, the brighter ''and hotter'' her flames '''''BURN.'''''
* From ''Manga/FairyTail'', definitely Erza, and Natsu too if you count pink.
** Flare Corona is a literal FieryRedhead--her magic not only manipulates her hair, [[FlamingHair it ignites it.]]
* ''VideoGame/FatalFury'': Mai is usually [[{{subverted}} a subversion]]. But in the second film and TheMovie, she's portrayed as outgoing and outspoken, and has [[PlayingWithFire fire based]] attacks to top it off. Though her actual fighting ability tends to [[{{Chickification}} leave a lot to be desired.]] However, in the [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters games themselves]], she usually has either brown, or black hair (with purple highlights), but her cheerful, combative personality is the same ''and'' she's a certified ActionGirl.
* Kyo Sohma from ''Manga/FruitsBasket''. [[SpearCounterpart He may be male]], but he practically ''is'' this trope.
* Nami from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'', who encompasses most of the cliches that go with it. Hot tempered, passionate about what she does, outgoing, and fiery...the only thing is that, she's not ''nearly'' as violent as {{Tsundere}} [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair Kaname]] and, more often than not, actually ''tries'' to be gentle and nice around Sousuke, the guy she likes.
** That might have something to do with the fact that, in the original novels, she ''doesn't''
have red hair -- her hair is described as "brown and unkempt". The red version was strictly the attitude illustrator's fault. Then again, in the novels, Kaname doesn't have blue hair, either...
* ''Manga/GugureKokkurisan'''s Jimeko sports orange hair and is a tsundere.
* Averted with Mikuru from ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', who is probably the meekest, most timid member of the main cast and definitely a contrast
to match!
the fiery brunette main character.
* In "Nobody Here But—", Leccee from ''Anime/HeavyMetalLGaim'' was a quite temperamental redhead, especially when Kyao or someone else -[[CatFight coughAmucough]]- got her annoyed.
* Rias Gremory of ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'': She's actually a very passionate and friendly girl. It's when she's get mad ([[ClingyJealousGirl and it normally concerns]] [[LoveInterest Issei]]) that you have to watch out for her.
* Ayano Kannagi from ''LightNovel/KazeNoStigma'' is a red-haired fire magic user.
* Admiral Bittenfeld from ''Anime/LegendOfGalacticHeroes'' and Alliance soldier Katerose von Kreutzer. Averted with Admiral Kircheis, a fellow redhead.
* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' has Vita, Teana, Agito, and Nove, who are all redheads with
short story by Creator/IsaacAsimov, protagonist Cliff Anderson fuses. For an extra kick, Agito is deeply a literal fire elemental.
** Nove's sister, Wendi, also has red hair. Unlike the other examples, she's [[GenkiGirl quite cheerful]].
* Although Hikaru Shidou of ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'' is normally a friendly GenkiGirl, she is also very HotBlooded and gets ''mad'' when someone or something hurts her friends. Fittingly, her ElementalPowers are all about fire.
* Asuna of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''. The series also has Anya, who's both a [[PlayingWithFire fire-user]] and very feisty.
* Mai Tokiha of ''Anime/MaiHime'' is a subversion: she's a redhead with fire-based powers and presented as an example of this trope in the first episode with her violent outbursts at Yuuichi, but after that, she's shown to be [[CoolBigSis compassionate and caring]] and remains that way until things go ''really'' bad for her and everyone else.
** The manga plays it a bit straighter, giving Mai more of a loose temper that her anime counterpart, kept under better control. Both versions were played as "gutsy" and "passionate", which could fall under the redhead stereotype.
* ''Manga/MakenKi'': Minori is another literal example, who's Maken gives her [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c042/22.html the "firepower"]] to match her hair color and disposition. The last thing anyone wants is piss her off. [[BadassGrandpa Ouken Yamato]] can attest to that [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c043/16.html better than anyone.]]
* Both of the Grant brothers in ''Manga/MarmaladeBoy'', but specially [[LovableJock Brian]]. Michael is more of a {{Keet}}.
* ''Master of Mosquiton'': Inaho, is a textbook short-tempered [[JerkassWithAHeartOfGold bossy]] {{tsundere}} example, who drags the hapless vampire all over the globe with her, in search of the O-part to gain eternal youth. But she's not as bad as she first seems, as several episodes show that she isn't simply doing it vanity's sake. The reason she wants eternal youth so badly, is because she's
in love with his red-haired girlfriend Mary Ann, but does not quite have the courage Mosquiton and wants to ask her to marry him. Throughout the story Cliff talks about how wonderful Mary Ann is, but always amends his statement be together with "but him, for all time.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'''s [[spoiler:mother]], Kushina, was one of these, though
she does have red hair;" she [[InvokedTrope acts feisty and aggressive mellowed (slightly) with age. She was nicknamed "the Bloody Habanero[=/=]the Red Hot-blooded Habanero" because her face resembled a tomato...and because she beat the pulp out of every person that called her "Tomatohead". And sometimes, her hair is how girls floating and has the ''form'' of fire.
** Tayuya of the Sound Five. It's hard for her to go a scene without insulting someone.
** Karin is a more current example. [[MoodSwinger Sometimes]].
** Sakura, even though, technically, she has [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair hot pink hair]]. Then again, she ''does'' always ''dress'' in red.
** [[DarkSkinnedRedhead Karui]] seemed kind of hotheaded when she was beating the crap out of the titular character.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': Asuka Langley Soryu is a HotBlooded, hot-tempered redhead. Why else is she the picture on the main page?
* Mana the tomboy in ''Anime/OnegaiMyMelody'': a martial arts expert who is not adverse to using her kicks.
* Nami from ''Manga/OnePiece''. Even her punches are emotionally charged.
** Boa Marigold is just a shade lighter than red, but she combines PrehensileHair and InfernalRetaliation.
** We also have Eustass "Captain" Kidd, a sociopath who would also qualify for EvilRedhead.
* ''Anime/PhantomQuestCorp'': {{Downplayed}}
with red hair act]].
* In Tom Robbins' ''Still Life With Woodpecker'', in addition to the two red-haired protagonists (FallenPrincess Leigh Cherry
Ayaka. She's typically easygoing and {{Outlaw}} Bernard Mickey Wrangle), there's a involved sideplot/conspiracy theory around the extraterrestrial origins of redheads.
** In Asimov's Literature/LuckyStarr series, Lucky's sidekick John Bigman Jones has pale red hair,
[[HardDrinkingPartyGirl somewhat irresponsible]], offset by having [[HairTriggerTemper a short temper, fuse]] and a generally emotional nature. Lucky, volatile temper.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': Misty played the trope straight in the anime, often by griping at Ash for the damage to her bike, or simply chewing him out [[WhatAnIdiot for his general lack of common sense.]]
** Flannery,
on the other hand, is calm does use Fire-types. Both typecasting and brown-haired.
hotheadedness worked to her detriment in the [[Manga/PokemonSpecial manga]] back at Mt. Chimney, but she puts up a fight while stalling Kyogre later on.
-->''I'm not afraid of you! Just come and face me... '''Sapphire!'''''
** Jessie, the most {{Badass}} member of the Team Rocket trio.
** Zoey qualifies delightfully.
* Himeno from ''{{Pretear}}'', another Junichi Sato MagicalGirl anime, is a firey RedHeadedHero as well.
* Seira Morimura from ''Anime/PrincessNine''. Fits since she is hot-tempered.
* Ahiru from ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' isn't very strong in terms of combat, but she otherwise fits the description perfectly. (And she ''does'' catch the local {{Jerkass}} off guard once).
* The princesses titular character from ''Anime/ProjectAKo''.
* [[SelfDemonstrating/KyokoSakura Kyouko]] from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. While an {{Expy}}
of ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'' are all noted for having red hair, referred to as "the royal red" at a few points. Each princess has a different the trope image Asuka in terms of personality and none are exactly mercurial, but strength and passion are part of all of them.
* [[RedheadedHero Cord MaKiy]] from the ''Literature/{{ColSec Trilogy}}'', although it's somewhat mitigated by his introversion.
* Jessie in ''High Society'' by Creator/BenElton. Her
color scheme, her hair colour (dark auburn/reddish-brown) is referred more of a deep maroon than Asuka's more coppery tone.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' sort of has the titular character. As a teenager who was raised his entire life
to only once, but combined with her fight and win in martial arts duels, Ranma Saotome has the general [[ArrogantKungFuGuy hot-headed]], [[NobodyCallsMeChicken impulsive]], passionate personality she is an obvious example of to fit into this trope.
* Kaylana
trope. However, in his normal form, he's a black-haired ''boy''. Thanks to [[GenderBender Jusenkyo]] and an AdaptationDyeJob, he can gain the druid in ''Literature/{{Villains by Necessity}}''. Living up to the trope by answering any attempts to approach her with a staff knocked over the poor man's head.
* Prince Bryan in ''Literature/SummersAtCastleAuburn'' is every negative stereotype associated with red hair.
* Clary Fray from ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'', is easily upset
right sex and often lashes out at people.
* The main protagonist
hair color and loses none of the ''Literature/CronusChronicles'', Charlotte, is the grumpy variety.
attitude that lets him qualify.
* ''Creator/SimonaAhrnstedt'' gives us Beatrice Löwenström in Also subverted by pacifist Kenshin from ''Manga/RurouniKenshin''.
* In ''AudioPlay/SaintBeast'', Maya has a tendency to throw tantrums when things don't go his way.
* Lirin of ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'' definitely qualifies. While most of
her debut novel ''Literature/{{Overenskommelser}}''. She's intelligent, competent behavior is more like "annoying", she has a hair-trigger temper and assertive. But alas, many will scream at or drop boulders on people in this era (the 1880s) prefer quiet and subservient women. And being at the mercy who annoy her.
* [[LargeHam Nobunaga]] of ''Anime/SengokuOtome'' was told to squeeze a pipe to calm her down whenever she became frustrated. She does this, but it doesn't stop her from threatening ghosts who aren't scared
of her abusive uncle, who bullies her into a marriage with a man, who treats women like dirt under his shoes, she finds that out stories.
* Shana,
the hard way. But Flame-Haired, Fire-Eyed demon huntress from ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana'', though she's actually a brunette when she's not afraid to call [[PowerDyesYourHair using her oppressors out on what creeps they are, even if that only makes them even angrier powers]].
* Tiara, the heroine of ''Anime/ShamanicPrincess'', is a very powerful FullContactMagic user
with her...
** Averted with Beata Jensdotter in "De skandalösa". Despite being
a redhead, penchant for {{slasher smile}}s and [[TauntButton taunting]] her opponents. It's a good thing she's less up against AntiMagic users and [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm nigh-incomprehensible gods]], or the story would be over really quick.
* ''LightNovel/ShonenOnmyouji'' has this in the shikigami Guren/Toada as well as Takeshi.
* Kiddy Phenil of ''Manga/SilentMobius'', but only in the TV series. Her hair is green in every other version.
* Kyouko Mogami from ''Manga/SkipBeat'', even if, in reality, her hair is black. After her ImportantHaircut, she turns out to be [[HotBlooded extremely fiery]].
* Lina Inverse from ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}''. Bonus points because she has a tendency to make everything go into flames when she's really pissed off.
** It doesn't take much to piss her off either. She once let off a fireball in restaraunt because a fight broke out and her food got spilled.She had to be physically stopped from using one of the most powerful spells out there, called the Dragon Slave, on one of her friends because she wouldn't go back to her employer pretending Lina beat her.
* Subverted in ''Anime/SoltyRei'' with Accela, who is very shy and timid (at least, until she goes LaughingMad in the last few episodes).
* ''Anime/SonicX'''s incarnation of Knuckles.
* Kurisu from ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate''.
* The ''Anime/StrikeWitches'' canon has at least one in Charlotte Yeager, the 501st Joint Fighter Wing's resident {{large ham}} and {{lightning bruiser}}.
* Chocolat from ''Manga/SugarSugarRune''
* Vixen from ''Manga/TheVoynichHotel'' tries not to be this. She fails miserably and hilariously.
* ''LightNovel/TrinityBlood'': Astaroth Aslan ''used'' to be a redhead when she was young (a traumatic event turned it gray/white, all but a streak). Esther Blanchett also fits, especially in the manga. She has more a grounded personality in the novels.
* Princess Rubina from ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' -one of the ''Anime/MazingerZ'' sequels could be quite the spitfire when she was angry. She was the only dared to call the BigBad out.
* Angel Salvia from ''Manga/WeddingPeach'', although green-haired Angel Daisy is also pretty
fiery than as well.
* Masane Amaha from ''Anime/{{Witchblade}}'' is this post-TransformationSequence.
* ''Manga/TheWorldIsStillBeautiful'' has
the brunette female protagonist Magdalena.
* ''[[Literature/AMagesPower A Mage's Power]]'': The Bladi Clan is PlayingWithATrope. They all have red
Nike who has orange hair as a dominant trait but their temperments vary.
** Basilard is only firece in battle. Otherwise he's mellow.
** Mia is closer to RoseHairedSweetie with her kind nature
** Raki is a rude
and aggressive dual wielder.
a hot-tempered and strong-willed personality.
* Rose Hathaway Another literal example is Rin from ''Literature/VampireAcademy'' is a brunette with some tinges of red in her hair, described to be extremely strong-willed, stubborn, passionate, feisty, fiery, proud and impulsive.
* Inverted with Fiona from ''Literature/TheGiver''. She is said to be calm and serene from Jonas.
* Kristen Börstrom from ''Literature/{{MARZENA}}'' is a Swedish redhead Ex-Cop turned into super killer assassin. Although red is not her natural color, it does seem to match her temper.
* Chloe Wentworth from ''The Lost Sisters of Pleasant Valley'' novels.
* Katelyn, the spunky GranolaGirl from ''Literature/{{Insupu}}''.
* ''Literature/MidnightsChildren'' has Saleem's sister the Brass Monkey, who got her nickname because she's one of these. She is also ''literally'' fiery, in that she lights shoes on fire to get attention.
''Anime/YesPrecure5''. Her hair darkens to brown when she even turns nine, into a flame-esque style after her transformation.
* Nakiami from ''Anime/XamdLostMemories'' is a subversion. She has red hair, but is taciturn
and she subsequently mellows out a bit.
* Iris of ''Literature/TheFirstDwarfKing'' definitely counts. She's
shows little to no interest in romance. She is an ActionGirlfriend to the hero, Jani.
** Averted by [[TheHighQueen Aristomache]]; while she's a capable LadyOfWar, she acts calm and reserved most of the time.
* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': The female District 10 Tribute in ''Catching Fire'', being the only redhead of all the tributes.
undeniable {{Badass}}, though...

* ''Film/DownWithLove'' - Renee Zellweger's character stops being a wimpy woman and dyes her hair red to show it.
* Charlene, played by AmyAdams in ''Film/TheFighter'', who delivers the immortal line "Don't call me a skank. I'll rip that nasty hair right outta your fuckin' head."
* Rose in ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'' is a pistol even when she's being polite. At lunch she tells Mr. Ismay that Dr. Freud's ideas about the male preoccupation with size might be of particular interest to him. When Cal tries to stop her from going to Jack she tells him that she's rather be Jack's whore than Cal's wife and spits in Cal's face.
%%* Black Widow in the ''MarvelCinematicUniverse'', to some extent.
* ''Film/DiamondsAreForever''. When Film/JamesBond first meets Tiffany Case, she's outspoken, quite rude to him, and has a bit of a temper. She changed wigs (from blonde to brunette), then appeared as a redhead.
-->'''Film/JamesBond:''' I don't care much for redheads. Terrible tempers. But somehow it seems to suit you.\\
'''Tiffany:''' It's my own.
** [[{{Tsundere}} Natalya]] is all over this trope in ''Film/{{GoldenEye}}''.
* The Ur-Fiery redhead, Mary-Kate Dannaher in John Ford's ''Film/TheQuietMan''. As another character puts it, "That red hair is no lie!" She tries to slug out John Wayne himself! Maureen O'Hara's finest FieryRedhead hour.
** Maureen O'Hara was a real-life example herself: during filming of one scene where Creator/JohnFord kept complaining about her reacting to her hair being blown into her eyes, she snapped "What would a bald son-of-a-bitch know about getting hair in his eyes?!"
* Bortai, the redheaded Tartar princess played by Susan Hayward in the JohnWayne flop ''The Conqueror''.
* Ginny Weasley from ''Film/HarryPotter'' is a double subversion as she is usually soft spoken but:
-->'''Harry:''' Okay, so this morning I'm going to be putting you all though a few drills, just to set things straight...\\
[Everybody keeps talking]\\
'''Harry:''' Quiet, please!\\
[Nobody listens to him]\\
'''Ginny:''' SHUT IT!\\
[Silence]\\
'''Harry:''' ...thanks.
** In fact, many fo the Weasleys fit this trope. Ron is probably the most obvious exapmle, being a man of [[HotTemper short temper]] and many [[BerserkButton soft spots]], like his family's financial straits, his inferiority complexes (in plural), his romantic inaptitude, mudblood shaming, and pretty much anything that comes out of [[SmugSnake Draco Malfoy's]] mouth.
* Free-spirited and flamboyant Delysia Lafosse from ''Film/MissPettigrewLivesForADay''.
* The fabulous Miss Vida Boheme in ''Film/ToWongFooThanksForEverythingJulieNewmar''. Subverted somewhat in that Vida Boheme is really Patrick Swayze in drag, and the red hair is a wig.
* Mr. Clarence Day, Sr. of ''Life With Father'' is a male example.
* April, the main character's friend in ''Film/DefinitelyMaybe'', forcefully tells him how to propose to his girlfriend.
* KnifeNut Lynne from ''Film/TheWarriorsWay''.
* Ann Sheridan in several movies from the late 1930s/early 1940s.
* ''Film/XMen'':

** Jean Grey, especially as the Dark Phoenix in ''Film/XMenTheLastStand''.
** Sean Cassidy/Banshee from ''Film/XMenFirstClass''. His actor even auditioned because it was a rare ginger superhero. Ironically, Sean's one of the least hot-headed and combative of the students, with those titles going moreso to Alex and Raven.
** Yukio from ''Film/TheWolverine''. Though it's clearly not her natural hair color.
* Shannon of ''{{Film/Far and Away}}'' fits this easily.
--> '''Joseph:''' I warn you. That redhead has a bite that stings.
* ''Film/TheWoods'' with Heather, played by Agnes Bruckner.
* Henriette de Nevers is an understated but still adventurous redhead in the film version of ''Film/LaReineMargot''.
* Gimli of ''Film/LordOfTheRings'' has red hair with a matching beard as well as being quick-tempered. Well, the temper part is kinda obvious because he is a Dwarf. Same goes for his father Glóin in ''Film/TheHobbit''.
* Spirited Ashley in ''Junebug'' is a midler and realistic version of this.
* Scarlet from ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra''.
* Almost any character played by Maureen O'Hara.
* Lil from the appropriately titled ''Film/RedHeadedWoman'', who is a gold-digging seductress. If you break a date with her, she may follow you to your house and scream at you while you are talking with your wife. If your party upstages hers, she may show up and make a scene. And if you dump her, she might pull out a gun and shoot you.
* Murph in ''Film/{{Interstellar}}'', who is as brilliant as she is mercurial. More literally when she sets Tom's crops on fire to cause a distraction and sneak back to his house.
* Maya (also played by Creator/JessicaChastain) from ''Film/ZeroDarkThirty'' is a [[TheDeterminator determined]] woman [[MarriedToTheJob with an insane obsession to search for]] UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden at all costs. Her towering male co-workers are quite impressed with her explosive nature and snarky boasts.
* Sarah Harding in ''Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark''. She is an animal enthusiast that studies predators and when she has the very chance of meeting dinosaurs she doesn't doubt for a second, despite Ian's rantings and warnings.
** Claire Dearing, the Film/JurassicWorld operations manager, can be ''redder than ever'' if you remind her how bad her first date went. And let's not talk about when she is determined to find her nephews, [[ActionDressRip ripping her clothes]] [[CombatStilettos and wearing heels in action included]].
* Ilsa Faust from ''Film/MissionImpossibleRogueNation''. [[ActionGirl She kicks out the damn out of everyone with her dark red hair and freckles]]. She has GreenEyes too.
* Cynthia in ''Film/LoveFindsAndyHardy''. Cynthia is gorgeous, and apparently quite a bit sluttier than all the other girls in Carvel--Andy doesn't know how to deal with Cynthia's nonstop desire for "hugging and kissing." Cynthia dumps Andy like yesterday's garbage after she gets a look at TheAllegedCar he just bought.

Rachel on the other hand has always been fiery, before during and has a bit after her own Phoenix days.

** In fact, many fo the Weasleys fit this trope. Ron is probably the most obvious exapmle, being a man of [[HotTemper short temper]] and many [[BerserkButton soft spots]], like his family's financial straits, his inferiority complexes (in plural), his romantic inaptitude, mudblood shaming, and pretty much anything that comes out of [[SmugSnake Draco Malfoy's]] mouth.

* ''Series/TheAmazingRace'': Jaime Edmondson and, to a lesser extent, her team-mate Cara Rosenthal.
* ''Series/{{Castle}}'': Castle is surrounded by fiery redheads (with varying degrees of redness): his spacy but tough mother, his sweet daughter who isn't afraid to tell him off when necessary, and his police detective partner who is a {{Badass}} ActionGirl with a gun. In fact, as Beckett has [[DefrostingIceQueen defrosted]] and become much less icy and abrasive, her hair has [[http://www.ctv.ca/beimage.asmx?imgurl=files/2013%2F2%2F4%2F82dab96f76c5e751_600x338_castle_beckett_then.jpg softened]] from a deep red to brown.
* ''Commander In Chief'': Vice-President Mackenzie Allen was encouraged by ''everyone'' to resign when death by aneurysm got a hold of the President. Instead, she took the Oath of Office, won the country, and was generally a spitfire who shouldered the responsibility of the Presidency without getting drunk on power - and God help you if you stood in her way. Fiery Redhead, indeed!
* ''Series/CovingtonCross'': Eleanor Grey.
* ''Series/{{CSI}}'': Catherine Willows borderlines this, as a strawberry blonde. It's not deep red, but probably got enough red mixed with the blonde to count. And she's got the personality to go with it.
* ''Series/CSIMiami'': Horatio Caine, sometimes. You definitely don't want to get on his bad side. He'll hunt you across however many countries it takes, as the Mala Noches could attest. He didn't exactly seem to have trouble getting women, either, though they kept getting killed for some reason.
* ''Series/DaysOfOurLives'': Melanie Jonas (formerly Melanie Layton Kiriakis). Despite being downright saccharine at times, if you get on her bad side, she'll ''really'' let you have it. Also, since she's about to gain her sixth love interest in less than three years, she definitely qualifies as an example of HeroesWantRedheads. Her ParentalSubstitute Maggie also fits this trope.
* ''Series/{{Defiance}}'': Irisa Nyira, played by Music/StephanieLeonidas (who is not red-headed in {{Real Life}}). This leading to this comment IMDB: "Is it wrong of me to find her more attractive as an alien than the actor behind it?" and the reply, "Proof that redheads are just better?". Irisa is possibly also an example of the "Big Eyes" part of trope {{Big Eyes Little Eyes}}.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** Donna Noble, who was probably the loudest companion yet (but that's not necessarily a bad thing). One character refers to her as being "all red hair and fire".
** Or the just-as-loud Melanie Bush.
** Dr. Grace Holloway. HeroesWantRedheads, evidently, if only to go on adventures with and maybe kiss a little.
** As well as Amy Pond. Not quite as loud, but just as fiery. Actually {{lampshade| hanging}}d in the show itself, with the line, "Loves a redhead, our Doctor!"

* ''The Edge of Night'': Raven Whitney.
* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'': Jool and Sikozu.
* ''Series/FirstWave'': Jordan Radcliffe.

* ''Series/{{Glee}}'': InvertedTrope: the only redheaded character is the super sweet Emma. Every other female character (except Brittany and Tina) is extremely fiery.
* ''Series/GreysAnatomy'' and ''PrivatePractice'': Addison Montgomery - former Montgomery-Shepherd. She's also pretty successful with men (Derek, Mark, Alex, Kevin, Noah), so she's also an example of HeroesWantRedheads.
* ''Series/HouseOfAnubis'': Patricia. She even scares the boys when she gets mad...which happens quite often. Her hair gets darker as the show goes on, though.
* ''Series/ILoveLucy'': Lucy Ricardo -- 60% screwball, 40% spitfire.
* ''TheInspectorLynleyMysteries'': Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, with the accompanying [[{{Tsundere}} temper]] and GreenEyes.
* ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'': When Assistant District Attorney Casey Novak isn't on the scene with guns blazing and taking a hands-on approach to the cases, she is in softball batting practice or bicycling to work.
* ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'': Jennsen Rahl.
* ''Series/{{Lost}}'': Charlotte.
* ''Series/MadMen'': Joan.
* ''Series/MagnificentCentury'': Aleksandra/Hürrem. Almost the first thing she does in the series is to grab a breadknife and attack the slavers who are holding her and her countrywomen captive.
* ''Series/MelrosePlace'': ''All'' of the redheaded women on Melrose Place (at least eventually in [[CharacterizationMarchesOn Kimberly Shaw's case]]), but most noticably Sydney Andrews, the troublemaking, prostitute/stripper younger sister of Jane Mancini.
** And this was not just reserved for women; there was also Dr. Bret "Coop" Cooper, as well.
* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'': Queen Annis.
* ''MySoCalledLife'': Central character Angela Chase evokes this trope by dying her hair "crimson glow". Former best friend Sharon Cherski is a ''lot'' calmer and more manageable than Angela, but she still easily fits the trope. Same goes with Hallie Lowenthal, the series' resident adult FieryRedhead.
* ''Series/{{Picket Fences}}'': As seemingly the sole female cop in the boy's club that is the Rome Sheriff's Department, Deputy Maxine 'Max' Stewart definitely fits the prototype of the fiery redhead. She's determined, passionate , ambitious, outspoken at times and quick to anger.
* ''Series/RescueSpecialOps'': Heidi. There are quite a few examples of this but one that stands out is when the Cops and Firies trick Chase out of RSO's equipment after he is put on light duties, Heidi uses her cleverness to trick both into giving the equipment back [[spoiler:by giving them the information about a nurses party, she fails to mention that it's a male nurses party.]]
* ''Series/{{Revolution}}'': Emma in the episode "[[Recap/RevolutionS1E15Home Home]]". She wasn't a combatant like most other characters, but she didn't hesitate to get in Big Bad Monroe's face and call him out on his actions. She also attempted to make an honest appeal to his better nature. It didn't work, but he did admit that he wants to be the person she remembers so badly. She was his girlfriend at one time, so it gave them a special connection. [[spoiler: Then, when he tried using her as a hostage, she didn't panic. In fact, she ended revealing that she gave birth to his son at some point in time and sent him away. Before she can tell him where, she got shot and killed. She had a major impact on Monroe from beginning to end]].
* ''{{Series/Salem}}'': Anne Hale, one of the few people to speak out against the witch hunt.
* ''{{Series/Selfie}}'' has a downplayed example in main character Eliza (played by Karen Gillan). While not exactly fiery, she is rather emotional, impulsive, and flighty.
* ''Series/TheSentinel'': We have Naomi Sandburg, who seems like a peace-loving ex-flowerchild, until you threaten her son; Jim's ex-wife Carolyn; and Megan Connor, the Antipodean Amazon.
* ''Series/SleepyHollow'' has Ichabod Crane's wife Katrina. Abbie put it best after Ichabod despairs that he should have stopped Katrina from [[spoiler: staying with the Headless Horseman to spy on Moloch's plans.]]
-->'''Abbie''': She's a grown woman, a witch, and a redhead. You couldn't have stopped her if you tried.
* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'': Tess Mercer. You do NOT want to get in her way or get her angry.
* ''{{Series/Spellbinder}}'': Ashka, the callous, mean, chronically double-crossing and power-hungry bitch.
* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': Major Kira Nerys. Former Bajoran resistance fighter, current second-in-command of ''Deep Space Nine'', and with an always fiery personality. She once beat the shit out of a ''serial killer'' while the equivalent of ''nine months pregnant''. The personality type is implied by Chief O'Brien in the pilot to be a trait common in Bajoran women (probably referring back to Ro Laren, whose role the character of Kira was created to replace).
* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': Dr. Beverly Crusher - do not piss her off or you will find yourself dropped by Klingon martial arts faster than you can say 'hypospray'.
* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'': Captain Janeway, though, as she's TheCaptain, she doesn't have to lose her temper, just give them the [[DeathGlare Glare of Death]]. Strong, very expressive, and touchy in her body language even though she's a CelibateHero, and quickly gets {{Badass}} on anyone who threatens her ship or crew.
* ''Series/{{Suits}}'': Donna Paulsen.
* ''Series/TeenWolf'' has the feisty, ambitious Lydia Martin.
* ''Series/WhatILikeAboutYou'': Tina.
* ''Series/WillAndGrace'': Grace Adler sometimes qualifies.
* Wrestling/{{WWE}}: Amy Dumas (Lita) was a pretty decent personification of this, being flashy, outgoing, and pretty willing to jump in the middle of anyone who crossed her, male or female.
* ''Series/TheXFiles'': Dr. Dana Scully is a deliberate InvertedTrope. She is a redhead, but, between her and Mulder, she is the [[AgentScully analytical and restrained partner]], while the TallDarkAndSnarky Mulder is the [[AgentMulder passionate believer]]. It's also quite rare that we see Scully really angry, and it usually takes something [[NotSoStoic pretty extreme]] to piss her off. [[BerserkButton Hurting Mulder in any way]] is a ''very'' bad idea, though.

** [[BigBad Ganondorf]] even more so, especially in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]''.
* Ladies and gentlemen: SelfDemonstrating/{{Bowser}}, [[BigBad King of the Koopas]] from Franchise/SuperMarioBros.

*** Garet's siblings both demonstrate this trope; his parents, less so.
** Jenna (hair is [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair maroon]], but the personality fits).
** Akafubu of Kibombo (subverting MagicalNegro in the process).
** Karst (surprisingly, the only Fire Clan member to follow this trope).
** Tyrell (considering Garet's his father).
** Eoleo the Champa (debuted in ''Golden Sun: The Lost Age'', but grew into the personality for ''Dark Dawn'').
* ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' features the sharp-tongued, passionate, brash tiefling thief Annah-Of-The-Shadows.
* Of all the Redheads in ''TheWitcher'', Princess Adda is the one who could be called fiery. [[MagicWarrior Triss]] has her moments but is more often the tactician in combat or politics, as does [[TheMedic Shanni]], but she is more often [[TheChick motherly]].
* Subverted in ''[[FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]''. Eliwood is a redhead, but he's very level-headed and somewhat of a TechnicalPacifist. The HotBlooded one among the lords is LightningBruiser Hector, who happens to have...''blue'' hair. Also subverted with Kent, who's an OfficerAndAGentleman and TheLancer to Lyn.
** Averted in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemSacredStones'' by the [[PhenotypeStereotype typically]] red-haired Jehannans, who are usually very friendly. Most notable example being [[NiceHat Joshua]], who is known for being a gambling addict, not hot-tempered.
** Seth from the same game is also very level-headed and [[KnightInShiningArmor noble.]]
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' gives us Sully, the redheaded ActionGirl from Chrom's Shepherds group. Can be potentially played straight by either Owain, Cynthia, or [[{{Tsundere}} Severa]] [[spoiler: from the KidFromTheFuture team]] too, but only if [[spoiler: either of them is fathered by a redheaded man; i.e, Gaius or a redhaired male Avatar.]] Averted by [[BadassBookworm Miriel or Laurent]], however.
* [[ActionGirl Monica]] [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Raybrandt]] in ''VideoGame/DarkCloud 2''. Even though the game's point of view is centered on Max, she's the leader in the team and has a...unique sense of humor, especially where Firbits are concerned.
* Kimmy Eckman from ''BackyardSports''.
* Steve Burnside from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica''.
* That Fighter sprite from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' caused nothing but trouble.
** [[Webcomic/EightBitTheater I hear that]] [[WelcomeToCorneria he likes swords]].
** Averted by the White Mage.
** Subverted in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' with [[DarkSkinnedRedhead Wakka]], who is probably the most laid back character in the game. He has his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txGwkowqqJg angry]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpsFe81I6bw moments]], though.
* House Harkonnen from the ''Dune'' games. While this trope may not be entirely noticeable in ''VideoGame/DuneII'' and ''Dune 2000'', this is very prevalent in ''VideoGame/EmperorBattleForDune''. Several of the Harkonnen people notably have red hair (including Baron Rakan, Copec, and plenty of the house's infantry) and this very house is known to be cruel even to their own. The Baron does not hesitate one bit to scold a field general who failed a mission, giving a warning like "if this inept performance continues, I'll have you skinned alive!" Indeed, when you view the first FMV cutscene for this house, you hear the previous general cry out in agony, getting tortured by a slow and excruciatingly painful death because he failed his superior leaders. In the cutscenes, Copec and Rakan have short tempers. In the first cutscene when Gunseng attempts to help his ailing father, Rakan pushes Gunseng away with a hint of anger and tells him to go away. The whole House of the Harkonnen is corrupt and only consider their own desires, hence the artificial alterations to most of Geidi Prime; hardly anything can grow there by itself and new things require the expense of older substances to develop.
* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': The Normandy crew has two redhead [=NPCs=]. One is the ThePollyanna, but the other is a hotheaded BraveScot who fits even if he's an engineer rather than a fighter.
** PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard can be one depending on player choices, especially now that the default female Shepard in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' is a SignificantGreenEyedRedhead.
* Inverted in ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'', in which (by hair color) Aribeth is the closest thing to a redhead among all of the [=NPCs=] but is also the most rational and collected of the entire cast (until the [[MindRape dreams]] begin).
* At first glance, this trope is averted in ''Dragon Age: Origins'', where pious "good girl" Leliana is a redhead and "bad girl" Morrigan is a brunette. But Morrigan is a frosty kind of dark - sexual but not emotional; whereas Leliana is a former seductress-assassin and potentially an affectionate romance option for the player's character (whether male or female).
** If Leliana becomes "hardened" due to her personal quest, she plays this trope perfectly straight from then on.
** Aveline from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' also seems to be one, and various redheaded [=NPCs=] play it straight, subvert it, etc.
* Lilith from ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' has ElementalPowers in a game otherwise mostly devoid of sorcery.
* Natalie from ''VideoGame/ApeEscape''.
* [[PlayingWithFire Axel]] from KingdomHearts.
* The titular heroine of ''[[AtelierSeries Atelier Liese]]''. [[spoiler:She is slightly tamer by the time she reappears in ''VideoGame/{{Atelier Annie|Alchemists of Sera Island}}'', but still.]]
* [[TraumaCenter Trauma Team]] features Maria Torres, who is in first response. She seems [[DarkSkinnedRedhead pretty tanned, too]].
* As stated above, Misty from ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue''. [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Flannery]] (who's a [[PlayingWithFire Fire-type]] Gym Leader) and [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Gardenia]] fit to a point, too.
** Maxie from ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' is an interesting subversion- despite being an EvilRedhead who likes PlayingWithFire, he doesn't have the personality!
** Mars from ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'', one of the Team Galactic admins who of all things has a short temper.
** Chili from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', Unova's resident Fire-type Gym Leader.
** Silver, the rival of the ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver''
** Pokémon example: Darmanitan, the absolutely ''berserk''-looking daruma doll gorilla, is covered in red fur. A literal example too, as it's a [[PlayingWithFire Fire]]-type. The series has a few other examples like this.
** From the NobunagasAmbition crossover, VideoGame/PokemonConquest gives us Kai, who has ''literal'' fiery red hair. Not in the FlamingHair sense; this woman's hair ''shapes'' like flames when she gets angry, and looks like an explosion when she get's shocked. Fittingly, her Perfect Link is Darmanitan, listed directly above.
** From the Pokémon ranger sideseries, we have Lavanna.
* [[BlackMagicianGirl Jessica]] from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'' is a classic [[{{Tsundere}} Tsunde-redhead]] with the [[GirlishPigtails pigtails to match]]. She's also the games' [[FetishFuelStationAttendant richest]] [[{{Stripperific}} source]] of Grade-A [[MsFanservice fanservice]].
** Ashlynn from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'' is an earlier example of a FieryRedhead in the series and, like Jessica from ''VIII'', [[BlackMagicianGirl specializes in offensive magic]] and thus is also fiery.
** And Alena from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIV'', who (despite the pointy hat) isn't even a magic user, but instead a princess who would sooner punch her problems away than act like the stereotypical princess her father wants her to be.
* Tsubaki of ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' is a rare example of this trope being DoubleSubverted. She's a redhead, but for all of the first game (where she was an NPC) she was a studious, level-headed, rather pleasant ProperLady. Where the double subversion kicks in is when she is introduced as a playable character with her own story in the second game: she's actually a ClingyJealousGirl to her love-interest Jin. [[spoiler:It goes so far that not only does she become a vengeful, screaming maniac whenever someone gets too close to him, she actually tries to murder her friend Noel after BigBad Hazama convinces her that Noel stole away her chance to be with him, and she performs a FaceHeelTurn]].
* [[BlackMagicianGirl Aurora]] from ''VideoGame/BlackSigil'', [[PlayingWithFire with powers to match]]. So. Many. {{Fireballs}}.
* Asch from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' is rude, crude and liable to shout at everyone [[spoiler: Except Natalia.]] [[spoiler: He has his reasons, such as a clone replacing him and his family leaving him for dead because of it.]]
* Joanna Dark from ''VideoGame/PerfectDark'' and its prequel ''VideoGame/PerfectDarkZero''. Although, in the first game, her hair looks more brown than red, her personality is still ''FieryRedhead''.
* Subverted with Khalid in ''BaldursGate'', who is anything but fiery.
** Nalia in the sequel is a straightforward example, however.
* Cass in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' is a [[TheAlcoholic hard drinkin']], [[ClusterFBomb foul-mouthed]] spitfire of a woman who also happens to be mighty handy with a shotgun.
* ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' presents to us Zorne Sepperin, who's a short-tempered, impulsive, and moody little girl with love affections towards Graf Michael Sepperin (whom she regards as her father despite the absence of blood ties) and a knack for creating and throwing bombs [[{{Expy}} a la Bomberman]].
* Brooks in ''The Orion'' Conspiracy plays this trope straight to a T. She can cuss, she can fight, she can have sex, she can do a lot.
* ''HarvestMoon'' has various FieryRedHead's, though the most famous are the two Ann's.
* ''VideoGame/InThe1stDegree'' presents Ruby Garcia. She is a redhead (CaptainObvious), her first name refers to red, and she has the attitude. She is the girlfriend of the defendent James Tobin, and she wants to believe that he's not a murderer. In fact, asking the wrong questions (especially questions that make Tobin sound like a murderer) will get you an explosive outburst from her.
* [[MeaningfulName Ursula Unquenchablefire]], the Amazon leader in ''VideoGame/TheSpellcastingSeries''. [[InformedAbility Apparently quite the warrior and leader]], but not real big on foreplay.
* Liza, from ''Kaiser Knuckle''.
* From VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}, RED, Falcom, and Cave, though the latter is a subversion since her personality is cool as ice.
* The eponymous VideoGame/BattleGirl.
* VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe. A lot of his attacks are even fire related.
* Nadine from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'''s ''Point Lookout'' expansion pack.
* Mama from ''VideoGame/{{Cooking Mama}}'', despite looking like she's an innocent woman that loves to cook and not [[FireballEyeballs spoil her food]].
* Averted in ''StarCraft''. Sarah Kerrigan, with blood-red hair, has a [[IceQueen cool, calculating, and professional]] personality.
* Doug from ''VideoGame/RuneFactory4'' is a hot-tempered, red-headed dwarf. [[spoiler:But he's also capable of being cool and calculating, as his plot to get revenge on Ventuswill shows.]]
* The red-headed Gladiator from ''VideoGame/{{Sacred}}'' is the BigGuy among playable characters and a specialized mêlée fighter. According to the lines he occasionally shoots when fighting, he is also [[BloodKnight very enthousiastic to fight and kill]].
* In what could be another double subversion, ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' gives us Miss Fortune. She's red-headed and passionate... but falls more into the territory of cool-headed, teasing and seductive FemmeFatale MsFanservice, yet still has a competitive edge. That is, until she's told to use her ultimate skill, Bullet Time, in which she goes very fiery and let out a great laugh as she pelts you with bullets.
* Punk Giana from ''VideoGame/TheGreatGianaSisters'' and its modern counterparts.
* In the seventh installment of the ''VideoGame/DarkParables'', the Fairy Tale Detective meets Literature/{{Rapunzel}}'s betrothed, Prince Ross. He's a red-haired, red-eyed {{Hunk}} who wields both a FlamingSword and ElementalPowers of fire, and he's rather intense and comes across as more than a little angry. He's an extremely good person, however, and he loves Rapunzel devotedly.
* Captain Lorimette, in ''VideoGame/QueenAtArms'', is a regal and dignified LadyOfWar - but she's also very much this when her buttons are pressed.
* [[BigGood Mii Koryuji]] from ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' gets riled up by pretty much everyone. [[ActionGirl She also kicks lots of ass]] and is a [[TheCheerleader Cheerleader]] straight out of high school with GreenEyes.

He's an extremely good person, however, and he loves Rapunzel devotedly.

teenage years]].
* Oasis from ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. She tends to In the Literature/{{Branion}} series by Fiona Patton, the royal family of an alternate Britain is literally this. The sovereigns are the Jesus-style avatars of a fire god, and they commonly have red hair. They also have tempers, which is not surprising given that effectively having a fire god inside you is [[RoyallyScrewedUp not good for your mental stability]]. Justified by the presence in their family tree of [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Danes, Welsh and Irish]].
* Literature/GemmaDoyle and her mother.
* The ''Ashtown Burials'' series, by N.D. Wilson, has the reddish-brown haired Diana Boone. She doesn't have a particularly quick temper, but she is a skilled warrior and ace pilot, and you don't want to be on the wrong side of her when she does get angry.
* In ''Literature/ShamanOfTheUndead'', Zofia, aptly nicknamed Redhead, has HairTriggerTemper, especially when around [[TheStoic Brittle]] or [[ActionSurvivor Ida]], and is annoyed when others aren't as professional about their jobs as she is.
* Practically every female character in the novels of Creator/RobertAHeinlein. Even a few of the male characters qualify.
* [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Mara Jade Skywalker]], Luke's wife and DeadpanSnarker extraordinaire. She can get [[MamaBear very nasty]] if you hit her BerserkButton.
** As is her son, Ben Skywalker. The striking similarities
between extreme giddiness (usually the two (particularly their personalities) are brought up fairly often in profic, especially in ''[[Literature/LegacyOfTheForce Sacrifice]]'', and a LOT in fanfic. To be honest, probably the only notable physical feature he inherited from Luke are his blue eyes.
* Ygritte from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. All redheads are believed to be "kissed by fire" in the wildling culture and have a reputation for spirit. Rickon Stark inherited the Tully red hair and is the most expressive of the Stark children. And on the averted side, you have Sansa, Catelyn, and Melisandre, who express their anger in [[BewareTheNiceOnes different]] ways...
* ''Literature/HarryPotter''
** Ginny Weasley, as well as Molly and the rest of the Weasleys. A more mellow example is Percy, and he's regarded as a stick-in-the-mud.
** Harry's mother, Lily, was also like this, mostly around James before they ended up hooking up. Hmm, maybe the Potter men have a thing for fiery redheads.
* Literature/CiaphasCain '''HERO OF THE IMPERIUM''''s comrades Colonel Kasteen and Trooper (later Corporal) Magot fit this trope to a T, Magot almost to the point of being a PsychoLesbian. And, no, the two redheads are not a couple.
* C. L. Moore's Literature/JirelOfJoiry.
* Calliope in John Barnes's ''Literature/OneForTheMorningGlory''.
* Annie, aka Naughty Nan, in TheFilmOfTheBook, at least, of ''[[LittleWomen Little Men]]''.
* ''Literature/AnneOfGreenGables'':
** Justified with Anne Shirley whose temper was at its fieriest
when Torg acts nice she was teased about her red hair (being one of the few characters whose fire is connected to her) their coloring). She chewed out the neighborhood busybody and extreme [[{{Yandere}} jealousy and rage]] (usually also responded to being called "Carrots" by breaking her slate over a schoolmate's head. Nobody ever teased her about her red hair again, after the social snubbing Gilbert got for five or so years. Ironically, they end up marrying. [[note]] It's ironic for Anne. That was Gilbert's goal [[LoveAtFirstPunch since the beginning]]. [[/note]]
** Anne never quite gets over her dislike of her red hair. She didn't even like it
when something comes her ''children'' inherited it. When Jem is born and the nurse tells her his hair will be red, Gilbert reports to Marilla that "Anne is furious with her, and I'm tickled to death!"
* ''[[PrydainChronicles The Chronicles of Prydain]]''
** Princess Eilonwy is the extremely temperamental {{Tsundere}} ActionGirl whose temper is feared even by her friends, and especially her [[WellExcuseMePrincess love interest]].
** The boisterous King Smoit, who is jolly and personable with his friends, but unleashes a warrior's temper on those who anger him.
* Dylan Marvil from ''Literature/TheClique''.
* Aviendha (and, to a lesser extent, all Aiel women) from the [[Literature/TheWheelOfTime Wheel of Time]] series behave like this. They are quite proficient with the spears and knives they threaten men who make unwanted advances with.
* Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's daughter Longstocking, from the ''Literature/PippiLongstocking'' series (and subsequent adaptations). Don't mess with this [[CuteBruiser tank of a little girl]].
* In Robert Graves' ''King Jesus'', Jesus has red hair, that being one of the eight "signs of royalty".
* Herrenna the Henna-Haired Harridan, a side character in ''Discworld/TheLightFantastic'' has red hair (per her title) and absolutely no patience or pity for either Rincewind or Twoflower. Oh, and she has a [[{{BFS}} very big sword]].
* "Red" from ''Literature/GoodOmens''.
** Also, Pepper.
* Alanna of Trebond of ''Literature/SongOfTheLioness'' (the first book in the ''Literature/TortallUniverse'') has bright red hair and a temper to match. Her squire later remarks how she's known for her sharp edges--sword, knife, and tongue.
* Ditto with Tris in Tammy's ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'' series. She's very prickly from years of verbal abuse and abandonment. She does eventually warm up to her new friends, but she's still quick to sarcasm and doesn't tolerate fools gladly.
* Talea in Creator/AlanDeanFoster's ''Literature/{{Spellsinger}}''.
* Ce'Nedra from David Eddings's ''Literature/{{Belgariad}}''. Not just her husband Belgarion, not just their royal court, the ''entire kingdom'' of Riva is focused on keeping Queen Ce'Nedra happy. Because the alternative is just too grisly to contemplate.
* Renn from ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfAncientDarkness''.
* Squirrelflight of ''Literature/WarriorCats'' would qualify as a Fiery Redpelt.
** Her mother, Sandstorm, was one as well.
** Red, who defies her father's wishes to pursue a romance with her [[StarCrossedLovers Star-Crossed Lover]].
* Maedhros, Amrod, and Amras from Creator/JRRTolkien's ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' are the only elves to be described as redheads who fit the personality type. They're fierce, rash, more violent than is really healthy, and not particularly wise or patient... but then so are all their darker-haired siblings. A lot of fans assume their mother Nerdanel's also redheaded, thought the author only ever said her ''father'' is, and both of their personalities are the complete opposite: calm, soft-spoke, patient, and wise. They also had the sense not to join the rebellion of the Noldor, which is why they're still alive.
* Karen in ''Literature/TheThreeWorldsCycle''. Specifically in the first quartet, where she appears as a main character. She takes on Rulke, for Io's sake, and harasses every main character through the whole quartet. And she just happens to be described as having "extremely fiery red hair"...
* Sarah in ''Literature/TalesOfAnMazingGirl''is pretty firey in the right circumstances, if she often keeps her sass to herself.
* Jennsen Rahl in the Literature/SwordOfTruth series. In-story, red hair is often (falsely) stereotyped as the hair color of ''witches'' among the blond-haired D'Haran purebloods, rather than indicative of personality.
* [[TheChick April O'Brien]] of ''Literature/{{Everworld}}'', who also has GreenEyes and an Irish ancestry, perhaps to sharpen the contrast
between her and Torg). {{Justified|Trope}} since these emotions were programmed into [[SiblingYinYang her by Dr. Steve. In addition, she's frequently accompanied by fire-related motifs such half-sister]], who is a [[BlondesAreEvil blond]], [[LonersAreFreaks antisocial]] EmotionlessGirl.
* Ysabeau Wilce's ''Crackpot Hall'' series has both male and female examples with Hotspur and [[TheButcher Butcher Brakespeare]] respectively.
* Randle Patrick [=McMurphy=], in ''Literature/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest''.
* Karen from ''Literature/DragonsInOurMidst''.
* Red in Creator/AaronAllston's ''Literature/GalateaIn2D''; not only does Penny play WomenAreWiser in their BattleCouple, when Penny is dying and only their boss can save her, Red clearly has to fight to keep begging him to do so instead of attacking him.
* Terry Brooks' [[Literature/{{Shannara}} Voyage of the Jerle Shannara]] introduces Rue Meridian, who steals airships single-handedly and kills lizard-men, and you had better not tell her she can't.
* Wisty of ''Literature/WitchAndWizard'' is a FieryRedhead who can actually ''light herself on fire''.
* Bronwyn in ''Bronwyn's Bane''. Living with a serious curse increases her anger management issues.
* Clementine from ''The Liberation of Clementine Tipton''.
* Maggy Mulligan from ''Faraway Dream''.
* Gwen Jones from the ''Cherry Ames'' mysteries.
* Madeline from ''Madeline''.
* The Fire-witches in the Literature/EnchantedForestChronicles deserve special mention: when they get angry enough (which is often), their hair ''explodes''.
* Sioned, Sionell, and Feylin, among others of Melanie Rawn's ''Literature/DragonPrince'' and ''Literature/DragonStar'' trilogies.
* Margot Maynard in Elinor M Brent-Dyer's Literature/ChaletSchool series. Her hair is constantly described
as ThePhoenix. It turns out 'reddish-gold' and she has an absolutely rotten temper, which she blames on her 'demon'. She tries to control it, but it often gets the better of her, culminating in her nearly killing a girl with a bookend in ''The Chalet School Triplets''. Her cousin Sybil Russell also qualifies, at least as a child, until an accident with a kettle and her younger sister [[BreakTheHaughty has a drastic effect on her personality]].
* ''Literature/IRobot'' has engineer Mike Donovan, described as possessed of perpetually unkempt red hair, a short temper, and a generally HotBlooded personality, in contrast to his calmer dark-haired work partner Gregory Powell.
* Felicity of the Literature/AmericanGirlsCollection is a spunky, spritely colonial girl, full of energy and independence.
* Princess Elizabeth of Literature/TheRoyalDiaries' ''Elizabeth I: Red Rose of the House of Tudor'' can swear up a storm when she wants to.
* The main character of the Literature/DearAmerica book ''A Coal Miner's Bride: The Diary of Anetka Kaminska'' complains about everything about her looks except her red hair. At one point, she suddenly remembered
that [[spoiler:"fiery" she was her mother's fiery redhead and started yelling at her ungrateful husband with a list of the things she does for him.
* 'Red' Kelly and his sister Kelly Kelly in the ''Literature/YoungBond novels''. In fact, the whole Kelly clan might qualify.
* 'Red' Blaze from the Civil War and Floating Outfit novels of Creator/JTEdson. Blaze
is literal; she's [[PlayingWithFire pyrokinetic]].the most hotheaded and impetuous of Edson's heroes.
* Literature/InDeath series: Feeney has ginger hair. He may seem rather calm, but he can be explosive when he's angry.
* Literature/TimeScout: Margo Smith.
* Rachel Elizabeth Dare in ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''. Although [[StealthPun it's never]] [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]], even her initials spell [[MeaningfulName R.E.D.

ask "What was that noise?"]]
** Nanase. Just Nanase.
* Wildy San from ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures''.
* Georgia's best friend Rita in ''Webcomic/FineSometimesRain'' is a fiery redhead who is
her to marry him. Throughout the story Cliff talks about how wonderful Mary Ann is, but always ready amends his statement with "but she does have red hair;" she [[InvokedTrope acts feisty and aggressive because that is how girls with red hair act]].

the two red-haired protagonists (FallenPrincess Leigh Cherry and {{Outlaw}} Bernard Mickey Wrangle), there's a involved sideplot/conspiracy theory around the extraterrestrial origins of redheads.
** In Asimov's Literature/LuckyStarr series, Lucky's sidekick John Bigman Jones has pale red hair, a short temper, and a generally emotional nature. Lucky, on the other hand, is calm and brown-haired.
* Princess Voluptua The princesses of ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'' are all noted for having red hair, referred to as "the royal red" at a few points. Each princess has a different personality and none are exactly mercurial, but strength and passion are part of all of them.
* [[RedheadedHero Cord MaKiy]]

* Surma from ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''. Her daughter, Antimony, also has some of this personality, but

* Jessie in ''High Society'' by Creator/BenElton. Her hair colour (dark auburn/reddish-brown) is referred to only once, but combined
with [[AmplifierArtifact the blinker stone]]. And it's eventually revealed [[spoiler:Surma and Annie are both descended from a fire elemental.]]

-->'''Film/JamesBond:''' I don't care much for redheads. Terrible tempers. But somehow it seems to suit you.\\

* Josh Hadley, co-host of ''WebOriginal/{{Radiodrome}}'', ''Lost The Ur-Fiery redhead, Mary-Kate Dannaher in the Static'', and, most appropriately, ''What the Fuck?!?''. Best described as the [[Franchise/GreenLantern Guy Gardner]] of internet radio.

John Ford's ''Film/TheQuietMan''. As another character Austin puts it, "That red hair is no lie!" She tries to slug out John Wayne himself! Maureen O'Hara's finest FieryRedhead hour.

'''Harry:''' Quiet, please!\\
[Nobody listens to him]\\
'''Ginny:''' SHUT IT!\\
[Silence]\\
'''Harry:''' ...thanks.
** In fact, many fo the Weasleys fit this trope. Ron is probably the most obvious exapmle, being a man of [[HotTemper short temper]] and many [[BerserkButton soft spots]], like his family's financial straits, his inferiority complexes (in plural), his romantic inaptitude, mudblood shaming, and pretty much anything that comes out of [[SmugSnake Draco Malfoy's]] mouth.
* Free-spirited and flamboyant Delysia Lafosse from ''Film/MissPettigrewLivesForADay''.
* The fabulous Miss Vida Boheme in ''Film/ToWongFooThanksForEverythingJulieNewmar''. Subverted somewhat in that Vida Boheme is really Patrick Swayze in drag, and the red hair is a wig.
* Mr. Clarence Day, Sr. of ''Life With Father'' is a male example.
* April, the main character's friend in ''Film/DefinitelyMaybe'', forcefully tells him how to propose to his girlfriend.
* KnifeNut Lynne from ''Film/TheWarriorsWay''.
* Ann Sheridan in several movies from the late 1930s/early 1940s.

** Jean Grey, especially as the Dark Phoenix in ''Film/XMenTheLastStand''.
** Sean Cassidy/Banshee from ''Film/XMenFirstClass''. His actor even auditioned because it was a rare ginger superhero. Ironically, Sean's one of the least hot-headed and combative of the students, with those titles going moreso to Alex and Raven.
** Yukio from ''Film/TheWolverine''. Though it's clearly not her natural hair color.
* Shannon of ''{{Film/Far and Away}}'' fits this easily.
--> '''Joseph:''' I warn you. That redhead has a bite that stings.
* ''Film/TheWoods'' with Heather, played by Agnes Bruckner.
* Henriette de Nevers is an understated
but still adventurous redhead in the film version of ''Film/LaReineMargot''.
* Gimli of ''Film/LordOfTheRings''
has been shown red hair with a matching beard as well as being quick-tempered. Well, the temper part is kinda obvious because he is a Dwarf. Same goes for his father Glóin in ''Film/TheHobbit''.
* Spirited Ashley in ''Junebug'' is a midler and realistic version of this.
* Scarlet from ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra''.
* Almost any character played by Maureen O'Hara.
* Lil from the appropriately titled ''Film/RedHeadedWoman'', who is a gold-digging seductress. If you break a date with her, she may follow you
to have your house and scream at you while you are talking with your wife. If your party upstages hers, she may show up and make a scene. And if you dump her, she might pull out a gun and shoot you.
* Murph in ''Film/{{Interstellar}}'', who is as brilliant as she is mercurial. More literally when she sets Tom's crops on fire to cause a distraction and sneak back to his house.
* Maya (also played by Creator/JessicaChastain) from ''Film/ZeroDarkThirty'' is a [[TheDeterminator determined]] woman [[MarriedToTheJob with an insane obsession to search for]] UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden at all costs. Her towering male co-workers are quite impressed with her explosive nature and snarky boasts.
* Sarah Harding in ''Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark''. She is an animal enthusiast that studies predators and when she has the very chance of meeting dinosaurs she doesn't doubt for a second, despite Ian's rantings and warnings.
** Claire Dearing, the Film/JurassicWorld operations manager, can be ''redder than ever'' if you remind her how bad her first date went. And let's not talk about when she is determined to find her nephews, [[ActionDressRip ripping her clothes]] [[CombatStilettos and wearing heels in action included]].
* Ilsa Faust from ''Film/MissionImpossibleRogueNation''. [[ActionGirl She kicks out the damn out of everyone with her dark red hair and freckles]]. She has GreenEyes too.
* Cynthia in ''Film/LoveFindsAndyHardy''. Cynthia is gorgeous, and apparently
quite a proclivity bit sluttier than all the other girls in Carvel--Andy doesn't know how to deal with Cynthia's nonstop desire for fighting when provoked. WordOfGod says that "hugging and kissing." Cynthia dumps Andy like yesterday's garbage after she gets a look at TheAllegedCar he only dyes his hair red, though.just bought.

%%* Niko from ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers''. Daisy O'Mega in the same series.
* Taken literally with the hot-tempered and red-headed Flame Princess in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' who often swings between adorable & cute and angry & violent.
%%* Katella from ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog''.
* ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'': Brittany. it's not sure if she's redhead, but DAMN, she's fiery.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'':
** Gwen fits this trope, but in the {{Time Skip}}ped sequel ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'', she seems [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks to have outgrown it]], unless you hurt her loved ones. That's when things start blowing up.
** Ben's Rath form is a FieryRedhead over most of his body, being an anthro tiger. He's also UnstoppableRage personified.
* Nonny from WesternAnimation/BubbleGuppies is an inversion. He's actually quite the [[TheStoic stoic.]]
%%* Ace [=McCloud=] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Centurions}}''.
%%* Atlanta from ''ClassOfTheTitans''. Theresa, to a lesser extent.
%%* Numbuh 86 in ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'', bordering on EvilRedhead.
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'': Averted by Jasmine "Jazz" Fenton. She wasn't a spitfire. She was a stuck-up (but caring) know-it-all. But her mother, Maddie, on the other hand...[[note]] but she's got brown hair; in fact, most fans think Jazz and her brother are adopted.[[/note]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'': Quinn Morgendorffer, when she gets really worked up. Usually suverted though, since she acts more like a DumbBlonde, despite having orange red hair.
* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'':
** Darkwing's adopted daughter Gosalyn. She is fierce and spirited and has red hair.
** Averted by the show's other notable red-haired character, Launchpad, who is a GentleGiant.
* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'': Dexter's family is split evenly between this and the DumbBlonde stereotype; he and his mother are fiery redheads and his sister and dad are happy-go-lucky yellow-haired [[TheDitz ditzes]].
%%* Beebe and Roger (and, at times, Judy) in ''{{Doug}}''.
* Averted by Sheila the Thief, of the WesternAnimation/DungeonsAndDragons cartoon, for she is not as much a boisterous fighter as her blonde little brother, Bobby...or her BlackBestFriend, Dianah.
* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'':
** Sarah is violent, screams a lot and has a HairTriggerTemper.
** Lee Kanker is a reckless, HotBlooded bully who also qualifies as EvilRedhead.
%%* Vicky from ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents''.
%%* Lois Griffin from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.
%%* Kyle from ''FanboyAndChumChum''.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'': Frankie, as Mr. Herriman and Bloo learn when they push her too far.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'':
** Fox. More determined than hot-tempered, however.
** Demona. As hot-tempered as her hair colour implies.
* ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'': Peg and Pistol form a mother-daughter pair of this. Peg is quite frightening when angry and is very assertive about her [[OnlySaneMan sensible opinions]] (unlike her ShrinkingViolet[=/=]ExtremeDoormat [[NoRespectGuy son]]) to the point she's actually able to control her otherwise bossy and dominating husband. Pistol is a GenkiGirl and a BrattyHalfPint.
%%* In ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', this is played straight with Manly Dan, but averted with his daughter, Wendy.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/{{Grojband}}'': Laney Penn bonus points for catching fire every so often.
* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'': Ernie Potts is a demolition man [[TheNapoleon Napoleon]] with a HairTriggerTemper. Though he is mostly bald, the hair he has left is red.
* Pepper Potts from ''IronManArmoredAdventures'' is a big time FieryRedhead and GenkiGirl.
%%* Jane from ''JaneAndTheDragon''.
%%* Saffi on ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' is this because she's CrazyAwesome.
%%* Jessie Bannon from ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures''.
%%* Shayera Hol/Hawkgirl from ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'': Kim has incredible drive and passion. Ironically, Animology calls these traits blue fox.
%%* The V.E.N.O.M warrior, Vanessa Warfield, from ''WesternAnimation/{{MASK}}''...although you may notice the dark streak on her hair.
%%* Kiva from ''WesternAnimation/{{Megas XLR}}''.
* ''WesternAnimation/MikeLuAndOg'' averted by Mike. While being a sports loving red haired girl, she is acutally calm and rather laid-back, compared to some shorter-tempered brunette princess named Lu. Though there are a few times when she's pushed over the edge like in "Sultans of Swat" and "To Serve Lu".
%%* Abraham Kane from ''{{WesternAnimation/Motorcity}}'', also an EvilRedhead.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** Rainbow Dash is a {{tomboy}} with tons of attitude, and though her [[MulticoloredHair mane has enough colours to fit her name]], her bangs are warmer colors (red, orange, and yellow) and are more prominent, while the cooler colors (green, blue, and purple) are mostly hidden behind her neck.
** Sunset Shimmer is ambitious, testy, sarcastic, hot-tempered, and red-haired -- although admittedly her hair's about an even mix of red and yellow.
%%* Teddy in ''MyLittlePonyTales''.
* ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn'': Pepper Ann Pearson, though she's more spacy and neurotic than fiery. In the uniform episode she admits that it's auburn, which other characters agree to once she tries to take credit for being the trope.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': Candance. However her long hair is more orange than red and is a overactive girl.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'':
** Subverted with Gretchen, as she's pretty easygoing, unless you make her ''really'' mad. She and raven-haired Spinelli actually swap their normal hair tropes: Gretchen's the brainy one (who ''was'' going to have black hair originally), while Spinelli's the fiery one. Played straight with Ashley Q.
** As flashbacks show us, Miss Finster was a redhead, and still fiery.
%%* Mackenzie Benders in ''WesternAnimation/RocketPower''.
* ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'': Bev Bighead can become this at times, mostly when she's irritated with Ed.
* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': [[ViolentGlaswegian The Scotsman]] is a loud, brutish warrior (and about the closest thing Jack has to a friend). Then there's his wife, who's even louder and more bad tempered than he is.
%%* Talon from ''WesternAnimation/SkeletonWarriors''.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** Kyle is this, often instigated as a result of [[{{Jerkass}} Cartman's]] antisemitism, racism, or greed. This can lead to his own {{Jerkass}} tendencies, approaching KnightTemplar at times. His mother, too, is a full blown fiery Jewish KnightTemplar redhead.
** Darryl Weathers, leader of an angry band of hicks bent on driving away the job-stealing "Goobacks" who immigrated from the future.
-->''"THEY TOOK OUR JOBS!"''
* ''WesternAnimation/SpidermanAndHisAmazingFriends'': Taken almost as literally as one possibly can with Firestar (she has brown hair in her human form).
* ''StarWarsTheCloneWars'': Death Watch member (and [[spoiler:Duchess Satine's sister]]) Bo-Katan [[spoiler: Kryze]]. Even though she is usually calm, she somewhat fits as a FieryRedhead due to being a rather aggressive character. Also is an EvilRedhead.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/StuntDawgs'': Sizzle, especially since she uses explosives!
%%* Volcana from ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''.
%%* He may be a minor character, but Johnny Sunspot is without a doubt the resident fiery redhead of SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo.
%%* Kimmy the [[TheCheerleader cheerleader]] LovableAlphaBitch from ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan''.
* ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'': If a headband counts as hair, Raphael certainly qualifies. Subverted in the comics, though, as all the turtles have red headbands.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': Starfire doesn't have the fiery temper ([[BewareTheNiceOnes unless you hurt her friends]]), but she's very passionate and [[GenkiGirl energetic]]. She even flies using "righteous fury!"
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTeddyRuxpin'': Young HotBlooded Prince Arin, whom the others often have to restrain from going off half-cocked charging into ''everything''. (Though his red hair is usually hidden underneath a helmet.)
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans'': Tyrone is usually a pretty mellow DeadpanSnarker, but he's been shown to have quite a temper in some episodes, like "Best Clowns in Town" and "Sinbad Sails Alone".
* ''TheBotsMaster'': Blitzy Zulander is easily the more hot-headed of the Zulander siblings, preferring full-on assaults against the Corp. She's also the main pilot of the combining ''HumongousMecha'' Jungle Fiver.
* ''TheDreamstone'': Amberly is usually [[WomenAreWiser rather level headed and soft spoken]]; however, her temper flares immensely at times. [[PityTheKidnapper The Urpneys know this]] [[CuteBruiser first hand]].
%%* Every woman in the Slaghoople bloodline in ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' -- Wilma's mother, Wilma, and Pebbles.
%%* Mallory [=McMallard=] from ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyDucks''.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'':
** Averted by calm, rational, redheaded Blossom. The 'fiery' one though is the brunette-haired Buttercup. Although she insists that she IS a fiery redhead in one of the interview promos for ''TheMovie''.
** Played straight with Princess Morbucks, who throws a tantrum when she doesn't get what she wants.
* Headstrong, passionate, and excitable Ray Stantz becomes one in ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' and its 90s successor ''WesternAnimation/ExtremeGhostbusters'' thanks to an AdaptationDyeJob (his hair is brown [Dan Aykroyd's natural hair color] in the movies). Ditto the Ghostbusters' SassySecretary Janine Melnitz, though to a lesser extent as her hair was already a reddish-brown color in the first movie.
%%* Doyle from ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays''.
%%* Groundskeeper Willie from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'': Sassette was this before Papa Smurf changed her into a real Smurf. That's where [[MeaningfulName she gets her name]]. Averted in the comic books, where she is more chatty than bratty when she was first created.
* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'': Otto is generally outgoing and friendly towards everyone around him, he doesn't appreciate it when adults are mean to him or do something incredibly stupid. Sometimes, the attitude towards these types of people are just plain spiteful. He will often argue and lose his temper all together a few times. Sometimes, he will work out a plan that has the sole purpose of simply humiliating someone, let alone get a mission completed.
%%* Izzy on the ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Total Drama]]'' series. In ''Revenge of the Island'', the normally level-headed Zoey can get this way [[InvokedTrope when provoked]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'':
** Subverted since the redhead Sam is a BadassBookworm and the brains of the group.
** However, Gabriella seems to be more spitfire than her daughter mentioned above.
* ''{{Transformers| Generation 1}}'':
** Cliffjumper is a hotheaded little red Autobot who is extremely paranoid and eager to blindly charge into a fight.
** Ironhide is a crusty old veteran, but is also eager to wade into a good fight. Has a red 'helmet' and main body.
** Hot Rod is brash, impetuous, and outspoken as a young Autobot, and retains a primarily red/magenta color. Averted later as he becomes solidly brick red as Rodimus Prime, but also becomes more morose, brooding, and jaded.
** Warpath is a shouty BoisterousBruiser with no subtlety and a love of combat, and turns into a maroon tank.
%%* Bloom from ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'', to some extent.
%%* WesternAnimation/YosemiteSam. Quite obviously.
* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'': Speedy, aka Red Arrow, was [[RageAgainstTheMentor ticked]] [[BerserkButton off]] at constantly being ComicBook/GreenArrow's sidekick and set off on his own. Despite this, he genuinely cares about his friends and looks after them. In secret.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Ruby is very much this, having a red tint in her hair along with being red overall. She is ''very'' HotBlooded, to the point of her evaporating an entire pool because of her anger.
* ''WesternAnimation/RainbowBrite'': Red Butler has orange hair and a red color motif. He is a headstrong boy.

* ''Series/{{Castle}}'': Castle is surrounded by fiery redheads (with varying degrees of redness): his spacy but tough mother, his sweet daughter who isn't afraid to tell him off when necessary, and his police detective partner who is a {{Badass}} ActionGirl with a gun. In fact, as Beckett has [[DefrostingIceQueen defrosted]] and become much less icy and abrasive, her hair has [[http://www.ctv.ca/beimage.asmx?imgurl=files/2013%2F2%2F4%2F82dab96f76c5e751_600x338_castle_beckett_then.jpg softened]]

* ''Commander In Chief'': Vice-President Mackenzie Allen was encouraged by ''everyone'' to resign when death by aneurysm got a hold of

President. Instead, she took the Oath of Office, won the country, and was generally a spitfire who shouldered the responsibility of the Presidency without getting drunk on power - and God help you if you stood in her way. Fiery Redhead, indeed!
* Taken literally ''Series/CovingtonCross'': Eleanor Grey.
* ''Series/{{CSI}}'': Catherine Willows borderlines this, as a strawberry blonde. It's not deep red, but probably got enough red mixed
with the hot-tempered and blonde to count. And she's got the personality to go with it.
* ''Series/CSIMiami'': Horatio Caine, sometimes. You definitely don't want to get on his bad side. He'll hunt you across however many countries it takes, as the Mala Noches could attest. He didn't exactly seem to have trouble getting women, either, though they kept getting killed for some reason.
* ''Series/DaysOfOurLives'': Melanie Jonas (formerly Melanie Layton Kiriakis). Despite being downright saccharine at times, if you get on her bad side, she'll ''really'' let you have it. Also, since she's about to gain her sixth love interest in less than three years, she definitely qualifies as an example of HeroesWantRedheads. Her ParentalSubstitute Maggie also fits this trope.
* ''Series/{{Defiance}}'': Irisa Nyira, played by Music/StephanieLeonidas (who is not
red-headed Flame Princess in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' {{Real Life}}). This leading to this comment IMDB: "Is it wrong of me to find her more attractive as an alien than the actor behind it?" and the reply, "Proof that redheads are just better?". Irisa is possibly also an example of the "Big Eyes" part of trope {{Big Eyes Little Eyes}}.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** Donna Noble,
who often swings between adorable & cute was probably the loudest companion yet (but that's not necessarily a bad thing). One character refers to her as being "all red hair and angry & violent.

** Or the just-as-loud Melanie Bush.
** Dr. Grace Holloway. HeroesWantRedheads, evidently,

** As well as Amy Pond. Not quite as loud, but just as fiery. Actually {{lampshade| hanging}}d in the show itself, with the line, "Loves a redhead, our Doctor!"
* ''Series/EastEnders'': Bianca Jackson.
* ''The Edge of Night'': Raven Whitney.
* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'': Jool and Sikozu.
* ''Series/FirstWave'': Jordan Radcliffe.
* ''Series/FraggleRock'': Red, with her extreme tomboy nature, her...very high self-esteem, and her dominant personality (which itself causes numerous conflicts), plus her own explicitly stated desires ("The Tale of the Triumphant Princess" anyone?).
* ''Series/{{Glee}}'': InvertedTrope: the only redheaded character is the super sweet Emma. Every other female character (except Brittany and Tina) is extremely fiery.
* ''Series/GreysAnatomy'' and ''PrivatePractice'': Addison Montgomery - former Montgomery-Shepherd. She's also pretty successful with men (Derek, Mark, Alex, Kevin, Noah), so
she's redhead, but DAMN, she's fiery.
also an example of HeroesWantRedheads.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'':
** Gwen fits this trope, but
''Series/HouseOfAnubis'': Patricia. She even scares the boys when she gets mad...which happens quite often. Her hair gets darker as the show goes on, though.
* ''Series/ILoveLucy'': Lucy Ricardo -- 60% screwball, 40% spitfire.
* ''TheInspectorLynleyMysteries'': Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, with the accompanying [[{{Tsundere}} temper]] and GreenEyes.
* ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'': When Assistant District Attorney Casey Novak isn't on the scene with guns blazing and taking a hands-on approach to the cases, she is in softball batting practice or bicycling to work.
* ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'': Jennsen Rahl.
* ''Series/{{Lost}}'': Charlotte.
* ''Series/MadMen'': Joan.
* ''Series/MagnificentCentury'': Aleksandra/Hürrem. Almost the first thing she does
in the {{Time Skip}}ped sequel ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'', she seems [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks series is to have outgrown it]], unless you hurt grab a breadknife and attack the slavers who are holding her loved ones. That's when things start blowing up.
and her countrywomen captive.
* ''Series/MelrosePlace'': ''All'' of the redheaded women on Melrose Place (at least eventually in [[CharacterizationMarchesOn Kimberly Shaw's case]]), but most noticably Sydney Andrews, the troublemaking, prostitute/stripper younger sister of Jane Mancini.
** Ben's Rath form And this was not just reserved for women; there was also Dr. Bret "Coop" Cooper, as well.
* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'': Queen Annis.
* ''MySoCalledLife'': Central character Angela Chase evokes this trope by dying her hair "crimson glow". Former best friend Sharon Cherski
is a FieryRedhead over most ''lot'' calmer and more manageable than Angela, but she still easily fits the trope. Same goes with Hallie Lowenthal, the series' resident adult FieryRedhead.
* ''Series/{{Picket Fences}}'': As seemingly the sole female cop in the boy's club that is the Rome Sheriff's Department, Deputy Maxine 'Max' Stewart definitely fits the prototype
of his body, being an anthro tiger. He's also UnstoppableRage personified.
the fiery redhead. She's determined, passionate , ambitious, outspoken at times and quick to anger.
* Nonny from WesternAnimation/BubbleGuppies is an inversion. He's actually ''Series/RescueSpecialOps'': Heidi. There are quite a few examples of this but one that stands out is when the [[TheStoic stoic.Cops and Firies trick Chase out of RSO's equipment after he is put on light duties, Heidi uses her cleverness to trick both into giving the equipment back [[spoiler:by giving them the information about a nurses party, she fails to mention that it's a male nurses party.]]
%%* Ace [=McCloud=] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Centurions}}''.
%%* Atlanta from ''ClassOfTheTitans''. Theresa, to a lesser extent.
%%* Numbuh 86
* ''Series/{{Revolution}}'': Emma in ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'', bordering on EvilRedhead.
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'': Averted by Jasmine "Jazz" Fenton.
the episode "[[Recap/RevolutionS1E15Home Home]]". She wasn't a spitfire. combatant like most other characters, but she didn't hesitate to get in Big Bad Monroe's face and call him out on his actions. She also attempted to make an honest appeal to his better nature. It didn't work, but he did admit that he wants to be the person she remembers so badly. She was his girlfriend at one time, so it gave them a stuck-up (but caring) know-it-all. But special connection. [[spoiler: Then, when he tried using her mother, Maddie, as a hostage, she didn't panic. In fact, she ended revealing that she gave birth to his son at some point in time and sent him away. Before she can tell him where, she got shot and killed. She had a major impact on Monroe from beginning to end]].
* ''{{Series/Salem}}'': Anne Hale, one of
the other hand...[[note]] but few people to speak out against the witch hunt.
* ''{{Series/Selfie}}'' has a downplayed example in main character Eliza (played by Karen Gillan). While not exactly fiery, she is rather emotional, impulsive, and flighty.
* ''Series/TheSentinel'': We have Naomi Sandburg, who seems like a peace-loving ex-flowerchild, until you threaten her son; Jim's ex-wife Carolyn; and Megan Connor, the Antipodean Amazon.
* ''Series/SleepyHollow'' has Ichabod Crane's wife Katrina. Abbie put it best after Ichabod despairs that he should have stopped Katrina from [[spoiler: staying with the Headless Horseman to spy on Moloch's plans.]]
-->'''Abbie''': She's a grown woman, a witch, and a redhead. You couldn't have stopped her if you tried.
* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'': Tess Mercer. You do NOT want to get in her way or get her angry.
* ''{{Series/Spellbinder}}'': Ashka, the callous, mean, chronically double-crossing and power-hungry bitch.
* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': Major Kira Nerys. Former Bajoran resistance fighter, current second-in-command of ''Deep Space Nine'', and with an always fiery personality. She once beat the shit out of a ''serial killer'' while the equivalent of ''nine months pregnant''. The personality type is implied by Chief O'Brien in the pilot to be a trait common in Bajoran women (probably referring back to Ro Laren, whose role the character of Kira was created to replace).
* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': Dr. Beverly Crusher - do not piss her off or you will find yourself dropped by Klingon martial arts faster than you can say 'hypospray'.
* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'': Captain Janeway, though, as
she's got brown hair; in fact, most fans think Jazz TheCaptain, she doesn't have to lose her temper, just give them the [[DeathGlare Glare of Death]]. Strong, very expressive, and touchy in her brother are adopted.[[/note]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'': Quinn Morgendorffer, when she
body language even though she's a CelibateHero, and quickly gets really worked up. Usually suverted though, since she acts more like a DumbBlonde, despite having orange red hair.
{{Badass}} on anyone who threatens her ship or crew.
* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'':
** Darkwing's adopted daughter Gosalyn. She is fierce and spirited and
''Series/{{Suits}}'': Donna Paulsen.
* ''Series/TeenWolf''
has red hair.
** Averted by
the show's other notable red-haired character, Launchpad, who is a GentleGiant.feisty, ambitious Lydia Martin.
* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'': Dexter's family is split evenly between this and the DumbBlonde stereotype; he and his mother are fiery redheads and his sister and dad are happy-go-lucky yellow-haired [[TheDitz ditzes]].
%%* Beebe and Roger (and, at times, Judy) in ''{{Doug}}''.
''Series/WhatILikeAboutYou'': Tina.
* Averted by Sheila the Thief, of the WesternAnimation/DungeonsAndDragons cartoon, for she is not as much ''Series/WillAndGrace'': Grace Adler sometimes qualifies.
* Wrestling/{{WWE}}: Amy Dumas (Lita) was
a boisterous fighter as her blonde little brother, Bobby...or her BlackBestFriend, Dianah.
* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'':
** Sarah is violent, screams a lot and has a HairTriggerTemper.
** Lee Kanker is a reckless, HotBlooded bully who also qualifies as EvilRedhead.
%%* Vicky from ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents''.
%%* Lois Griffin from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.
%%* Kyle from ''FanboyAndChumChum''.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'': Frankie, as Mr. Herriman and Bloo learn when they push her too far.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'':
** Fox. More determined than hot-tempered, however.
** Demona. As hot-tempered as her hair colour implies.
* ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'': Peg and Pistol form a mother-daughter pair of this. Peg is quite frightening when angry and is very assertive about her [[OnlySaneMan sensible opinions]] (unlike her ShrinkingViolet[=/=]ExtremeDoormat [[NoRespectGuy son]]) to the point she's actually able to control her otherwise bossy and dominating husband. Pistol is a GenkiGirl and a BrattyHalfPint.
%%* In ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', this is played straight with Manly Dan, but averted with his daughter, Wendy.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/{{Grojband}}'': Laney Penn bonus points for catching fire every so often.
* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'': Ernie Potts is a demolition man [[TheNapoleon Napoleon]] with a HairTriggerTemper. Though he is mostly bald, the hair he has left is red.
* Pepper Potts from ''IronManArmoredAdventures'' is a big time FieryRedhead and GenkiGirl.
%%* Jane from ''JaneAndTheDragon''.
%%* Saffi on ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' is this because she's CrazyAwesome.
%%* Jessie Bannon from ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures''.
%%* Shayera Hol/Hawkgirl from ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'': Kim has incredible drive and passion. Ironically, Animology calls these traits blue fox.
%%* The V.E.N.O.M warrior, Vanessa Warfield, from ''WesternAnimation/{{MASK}}''...although you may notice the dark streak on her hair.
%%* Kiva from ''WesternAnimation/{{Megas XLR}}''.
* ''WesternAnimation/MikeLuAndOg'' averted by Mike. While being a sports loving red haired girl, she is acutally calm and rather laid-back, compared to some shorter-tempered brunette princess named Lu. Though there are a few times when she's pushed over the edge like in "Sultans of Swat" and "To Serve Lu".
%%* Abraham Kane from ''{{WesternAnimation/Motorcity}}'', also an EvilRedhead.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** Rainbow Dash is a {{tomboy}} with tons of attitude, and though her [[MulticoloredHair mane has enough colours to fit her name]], her bangs are warmer colors (red, orange, and yellow) and are more prominent, while the cooler colors (green, blue, and purple) are mostly hidden behind her neck.
** Sunset Shimmer is ambitious, testy, sarcastic, hot-tempered, and red-haired -- although admittedly her hair's about an even mix of red and yellow.
%%* Teddy in ''MyLittlePonyTales''.
* ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn'': Pepper Ann Pearson, though she's more spacy and neurotic than fiery. In the uniform episode she admits that it's auburn, which other characters agree to once she tries to take credit for being the trope.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': Candance. However her long hair is more orange than red and is a overactive girl.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'':
** Subverted with Gretchen, as she's
pretty easygoing, unless you make her ''really'' mad. decent personification of this, being flashy, outgoing, and pretty willing to jump in the middle of anyone who crossed her, male or female.
* ''Series/TheXFiles'': Dr. Dana Scully is a deliberate InvertedTrope.
She and raven-haired Spinelli actually swap their normal hair tropes: Gretchen's the brainy one (who ''was'' going to have black hair originally), while Spinelli's the fiery one. Played straight with Ashley Q.
** As flashbacks show us, Miss Finster was
is a redhead, but, between her and still fiery.
%%* Mackenzie Benders in ''WesternAnimation/RocketPower''.
* ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'': Bev Bighead can become this at times, mostly when she's irritated with Ed.
* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': [[ViolentGlaswegian The Scotsman]] is a loud, brutish warrior (and about the closest thing Jack has to a friend). Then there's his wife, who's even louder and more bad tempered than he is.
%%* Talon from ''WesternAnimation/SkeletonWarriors''.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** Kyle is this, often instigated as a result of [[{{Jerkass}} Cartman's]] antisemitism, racism, or greed. This can lead to his own {{Jerkass}} tendencies, approaching KnightTemplar at times. His mother, too, is a full blown fiery Jewish KnightTemplar redhead.
** Darryl Weathers, leader of an angry band of hicks bent on driving away the job-stealing "Goobacks" who immigrated from the future.
-->''"THEY TOOK OUR JOBS!"''
* ''WesternAnimation/SpidermanAndHisAmazingFriends'': Taken almost as literally as one possibly can with Firestar (she has brown hair in her human form).
* ''StarWarsTheCloneWars'': Death Watch member (and [[spoiler:Duchess Satine's sister]]) Bo-Katan [[spoiler: Kryze]]. Even though
Mulder, she is usually calm, she somewhat fits as a FieryRedhead due to being a rather aggressive character. Also is an EvilRedhead.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/StuntDawgs'': Sizzle, especially since she uses explosives!
%%* Volcana from ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''.
%%* He may be a minor character, but Johnny Sunspot is without a doubt
the resident fiery redhead of SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo.
%%* Kimmy
[[AgentScully analytical and restrained partner]], while the [[TheCheerleader cheerleader]] LovableAlphaBitch from ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan''.
* ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'': If a headband counts as hair, Raphael certainly qualifies. Subverted in
TallDarkAndSnarky Mulder is the comics, though, as all the turtles have red headbands.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': Starfire doesn't have the fiery temper ([[BewareTheNiceOnes unless you hurt her friends]]), but she's very
[[AgentMulder passionate believer]]. It's also quite rare that we see Scully really angry, and [[GenkiGirl energetic]]. She even flies using "righteous fury!"
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTeddyRuxpin'': Young HotBlooded Prince Arin, whom the others often have to restrain from going off half-cocked charging into ''everything''. (Though his red hair is
it usually hidden underneath a helmet.)
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans'': Tyrone is usually a pretty mellow DeadpanSnarker, but he's been shown to have quite a temper in some episodes, like "Best Clowns in Town" and "Sinbad Sails Alone".
* ''TheBotsMaster'': Blitzy Zulander is easily the more hot-headed of the Zulander siblings, preferring full-on assaults against the Corp. She's also the main pilot of the combining ''HumongousMecha'' Jungle Fiver.
* ''TheDreamstone'': Amberly is usually [[WomenAreWiser rather level headed and soft spoken]]; however, her temper flares immensely at times. [[PityTheKidnapper The Urpneys know this]] [[CuteBruiser first hand]].
%%* Every woman in the Slaghoople bloodline in ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' -- Wilma's mother, Wilma, and Pebbles.
%%* Mallory [=McMallard=] from ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyDucks''.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'':
** Averted by calm, rational, redheaded Blossom. The 'fiery' one though is the brunette-haired Buttercup. Although she insists that she IS a fiery redhead in one of the interview promos for ''TheMovie''.
** Played straight with Princess Morbucks, who throws a tantrum when she doesn't get what she wants.
* Headstrong, passionate, and excitable Ray Stantz becomes one in ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' and its 90s successor ''WesternAnimation/ExtremeGhostbusters'' thanks to an AdaptationDyeJob (his hair is brown [Dan Aykroyd's natural hair color] in the movies). Ditto the Ghostbusters' SassySecretary Janine Melnitz, though to a lesser extent as her hair was already a reddish-brown color in the first movie.
%%* Doyle from ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays''.
%%* Groundskeeper Willie from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'': Sassette was this before Papa Smurf changed her into a real Smurf. That's where [[MeaningfulName she gets her name]]. Averted in the comic books, where she is more chatty than bratty when she was first created.
* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'': Otto is generally outgoing and friendly towards everyone around him, he doesn't appreciate it when adults are mean to him or do
takes something incredibly stupid. Sometimes, the attitude towards these types of people are just plain spiteful. He will often argue and lose his temper all together a few times. Sometimes, he will work out a plan that has the sole purpose of simply humiliating someone, let alone get a mission completed.
%%* Izzy on the ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Total Drama]]'' series. In ''Revenge of the Island'', the normally level-headed Zoey can get this way [[InvokedTrope when provoked]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'':
** Subverted since the redhead Sam is a BadassBookworm and the brains of the group.
** However, Gabriella seems
[[NotSoStoic pretty extreme]] to be more spitfire than piss her daughter mentioned above.
* ''{{Transformers| Generation 1}}'':
** Cliffjumper is a hotheaded little red Autobot who is extremely paranoid and eager to blindly charge into a fight.
** Ironhide is a crusty old veteran, but is also eager to wade into a good fight. Has a red 'helmet' and main body.
** Hot Rod is brash, impetuous, and outspoken as a young Autobot, and retains a primarily red/magenta color. Averted later as he becomes solidly brick red as Rodimus Prime, but also becomes more morose, brooding, and jaded.
** Warpath is a shouty BoisterousBruiser with no subtlety and a love of combat, and turns into a maroon tank.
%%* Bloom from ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'', to some extent.
%%* WesternAnimation/YosemiteSam. Quite obviously.
* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'': Speedy, aka Red Arrow, was [[RageAgainstTheMentor ticked]]
off. [[BerserkButton off]] at constantly being ComicBook/GreenArrow's sidekick and set off on his own. Despite this, he genuinely cares about his friends and looks after them. In secret.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Ruby
Hurting Mulder in any way]] is very much this, having a red tint in her hair along with being red overall. She is ''very'' HotBlooded, to bad idea, though.
* ''TheYoungOnes'': Vyvyan (who's a guy, by
the point way), the resident [[TheQuincyPunk punk]], actually breaks the bonds of her evaporating an entire pool because of her anger.
* ''WesternAnimation/RainbowBrite'': Red Butler has orange hair
fiery and a red color motif. He is a headstrong boy.crosses over into ''volcanic''.



[[folder:Pinball]]
* Red Hot from ''Pinball/BanzaiRun''.
* Jean Grey[=/=]Phoenix from ''[[Pinball/XMenStern X-Men (Stern)]]''

to:

[[folder:Pinball]]
[[folder:Video Games]]
* Red Hot ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'' gives us an excellent example in the [[PluckyGirl determined]], [[HotBlooded passionate]] and [[GenkiGirl energetic]] Lynne.
* Midna
from ''Pinball/BanzaiRun''.
''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''.
** [[BigBad Ganondorf]] even more so, especially in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]''.
* Jean Grey[=/=]Phoenix Ladies and gentlemen: SelfDemonstrating/{{Bowser}}, [[BigBad King of the Koopas]] from ''[[Pinball/XMenStern X-Men (Stern)]]''Franchise/SuperMarioBros.
** He is even able to breathe fire.
** Princess Daisy of ''Super Mario Land''. Friend and unconfirmed cousin of Princess Peach, the redhead Daisy was stated as a tomboy in ''Mario Tennis'', her first modern appearance, and is known for her energetic, loud, and competitive character traits.
* Nariko from ''VideoGame/HeavenlySword''. There has perhaps never been so much red coming out of one head.
** Excepting, perhaps, cases of [[YourHeadAsplode massive cranial trauma]].
* Claus and Kumatora from ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}''.
* Atlas from ''VideoGame/MegaManZX Advent'' uses fire attacks when merged with Model F. ''[[ViewerGenderConfusion She]]'' doesn't mess around.
** Before that was ''VideoGame/MegaMan1's'' Fire Man, who was a [[IncrediblyLamePun red fieryhead]]. His ''MegaManPoweredUp'' depiction is HotBlooded to the point of sounding like [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Yosemite Sam]].
* The chestnut-haired AxCrazy Aran Ryan from the VideoGame/PunchOut series.
** Also the auburn-haired, militant steel machine, Von Kaiser.
* Excepting the game versions and art which depicted her as a blonde or brunette, Tyris Flare of the ''GoldenAxe'' series. A fiery redhead in that she was able to summon explosions and dragons with her magic.
* Tasha/Zadia from ''VideoGame/AdvanceWars: Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict''.
* Aika from ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia''. She seems to be aligned with the Red Moon, which embodies heat, as well.
* What ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'s'' Adell lacks in gender, he makes up in ridiculous levels of fieriness - both [[HotBlooded figuratively]] and [[PlayingWithFire literally]].
* Mars Adepts in ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' typically partner this trope with [[HotBlooded Hot Blood]] and PersonalityPowers, making them good cases of ColorCodedForYourConvenience. Red hair = [[PlayingWithFire fire!]] As of ''GoldenSunDarkDawn'', we have:
** Garet (hair is more brown in his character art, but red on his sprite and he fits the personality)
*** Garet's siblings both demonstrate this trope; his parents, less so.
** Jenna (hair is [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair maroon]], but the personality fits).
** Akafubu of Kibombo (subverting MagicalNegro in the process).
** Karst (surprisingly, the only Fire Clan member to follow this trope).
** Tyrell (considering Garet's his father).
** Eoleo the Champa (debuted in ''Golden Sun: The Lost Age'', but grew into the personality for ''Dark Dawn'').
* ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' features the sharp-tongued, passionate, brash tiefling thief Annah-Of-The-Shadows.
* Of all the Redheads in ''TheWitcher'', Princess Adda is the one who could be called fiery. [[MagicWarrior Triss]] has her moments but is more often the tactician in combat or politics, as does [[TheMedic Shanni]], but she is more often [[TheChick motherly]].
* Subverted in ''[[FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]''. Eliwood is a redhead, but he's very level-headed and somewhat of a TechnicalPacifist. The HotBlooded one among the lords is LightningBruiser Hector, who happens to have...''blue'' hair. Also subverted with Kent, who's an OfficerAndAGentleman and TheLancer to Lyn.
** Averted in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemSacredStones'' by the [[PhenotypeStereotype typically]] red-haired Jehannans, who are usually very friendly. Most notable example being [[NiceHat Joshua]], who is known for being a gambling addict, not hot-tempered.
** Seth from the same game is also very level-headed and [[KnightInShiningArmor noble.]]
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' gives us Sully, the redheaded ActionGirl from Chrom's Shepherds group. Can be potentially played straight by either Owain, Cynthia, or [[{{Tsundere}} Severa]] [[spoiler: from the KidFromTheFuture team]] too, but only if [[spoiler: either of them is fathered by a redheaded man; i.e, Gaius or a redhaired male Avatar.]] Averted by [[BadassBookworm Miriel or Laurent]], however.
* [[ActionGirl Monica]] [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Raybrandt]] in ''VideoGame/DarkCloud 2''. Even though the game's point of view is centered on Max, she's the leader in the team and has a...unique sense of humor, especially where Firbits are concerned.
* Kimmy Eckman from ''BackyardSports''.
* Steve Burnside from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica''.
* That Fighter sprite from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' caused nothing but trouble.
** [[Webcomic/EightBitTheater I hear that]] [[WelcomeToCorneria he likes swords]].
** Averted by the White Mage.
** Subverted in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' with [[DarkSkinnedRedhead Wakka]], who is probably the most laid back character in the game. He has his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txGwkowqqJg angry]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpsFe81I6bw moments]], though.
* House Harkonnen from the ''Dune'' games. While this trope may not be entirely noticeable in ''VideoGame/DuneII'' and ''Dune 2000'', this is very prevalent in ''VideoGame/EmperorBattleForDune''. Several of the Harkonnen people notably have red hair (including Baron Rakan, Copec, and plenty of the house's infantry) and this very house is known to be cruel even to their own. The Baron does not hesitate one bit to scold a field general who failed a mission, giving a warning like "if this inept performance continues, I'll have you skinned alive!" Indeed, when you view the first FMV cutscene for this house, you hear the previous general cry out in agony, getting tortured by a slow and excruciatingly painful death because he failed his superior leaders. In the cutscenes, Copec and Rakan have short tempers. In the first cutscene when Gunseng attempts to help his ailing father, Rakan pushes Gunseng away with a hint of anger and tells him to go away. The whole House of the Harkonnen is corrupt and only consider their own desires, hence the artificial alterations to most of Geidi Prime; hardly anything can grow there by itself and new things require the expense of older substances to develop.
* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': The Normandy crew has two redhead [=NPCs=]. One is the ThePollyanna, but the other is a hotheaded BraveScot who fits even if he's an engineer rather than a fighter.
** PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard can be one depending on player choices, especially now that the default female Shepard in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' is a SignificantGreenEyedRedhead.
* Inverted in ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'', in which (by hair color) Aribeth is the closest thing to a redhead among all of the [=NPCs=] but is also the most rational and collected of the entire cast (until the [[MindRape dreams]] begin).
* At first glance, this trope is averted in ''Dragon Age: Origins'', where pious "good girl" Leliana is a redhead and "bad girl" Morrigan is a brunette. But Morrigan is a frosty kind of dark - sexual but not emotional; whereas Leliana is a former seductress-assassin and potentially an affectionate romance option for the player's character (whether male or female).
** If Leliana becomes "hardened" due to her personal quest, she plays this trope perfectly straight from then on.
** Aveline from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' also seems to be one, and various redheaded [=NPCs=] play it straight, subvert it, etc.
* Lilith from ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' has ElementalPowers in a game otherwise mostly devoid of sorcery.
* Natalie from ''VideoGame/ApeEscape''.
* [[PlayingWithFire Axel]] from KingdomHearts.
* The titular heroine of ''[[AtelierSeries Atelier Liese]]''. [[spoiler:She is slightly tamer by the time she reappears in ''VideoGame/{{Atelier Annie|Alchemists of Sera Island}}'', but still.]]
* [[TraumaCenter Trauma Team]] features Maria Torres, who is in first response. She seems [[DarkSkinnedRedhead pretty tanned, too]].
* As stated above, Misty from ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue''. [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Flannery]] (who's a [[PlayingWithFire Fire-type]] Gym Leader) and [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Gardenia]] fit to a point, too.
** Maxie from ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' is an interesting subversion- despite being an EvilRedhead who likes PlayingWithFire, he doesn't have the personality!
** Mars from ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'', one of the Team Galactic admins who of all things has a short temper.
** Chili from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', Unova's resident Fire-type Gym Leader.
** Silver, the rival of the ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver''
** Pokémon example: Darmanitan, the absolutely ''berserk''-looking daruma doll gorilla, is covered in red fur. A literal example too, as it's a [[PlayingWithFire Fire]]-type. The series has a few other examples like this.
** From the NobunagasAmbition crossover, VideoGame/PokemonConquest gives us Kai, who has ''literal'' fiery red hair. Not in the FlamingHair sense; this woman's hair ''shapes'' like flames when she gets angry, and looks like an explosion when she get's shocked. Fittingly, her Perfect Link is Darmanitan, listed directly above.
** From the Pokémon ranger sideseries, we have Lavanna.
* [[BlackMagicianGirl Jessica]] from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'' is a classic [[{{Tsundere}} Tsunde-redhead]] with the [[GirlishPigtails pigtails to match]]. She's also the games' [[FetishFuelStationAttendant richest]] [[{{Stripperific}} source]] of Grade-A [[MsFanservice fanservice]].
** Ashlynn from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'' is an earlier example of a FieryRedhead in the series and, like Jessica from ''VIII'', [[BlackMagicianGirl specializes in offensive magic]] and thus is also fiery.
** And Alena from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIV'', who (despite the pointy hat) isn't even a magic user, but instead a princess who would sooner punch her problems away than act like the stereotypical princess her father wants her to be.
* Tsubaki of ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' is a rare example of this trope being DoubleSubverted. She's a redhead, but for all of the first game (where she was an NPC) she was a studious, level-headed, rather pleasant ProperLady. Where the double subversion kicks in is when she is introduced as a playable character with her own story in the second game: she's actually a ClingyJealousGirl to her love-interest Jin. [[spoiler:It goes so far that not only does she become a vengeful, screaming maniac whenever someone gets too close to him, she actually tries to murder her friend Noel after BigBad Hazama convinces her that Noel stole away her chance to be with him, and she performs a FaceHeelTurn]].
* [[BlackMagicianGirl Aurora]] from ''VideoGame/BlackSigil'', [[PlayingWithFire with powers to match]]. So. Many. {{Fireballs}}.
* Asch from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' is rude, crude and liable to shout at everyone [[spoiler: Except Natalia.]] [[spoiler: He has his reasons, such as a clone replacing him and his family leaving him for dead because of it.]]
* Joanna Dark from ''VideoGame/PerfectDark'' and its prequel ''VideoGame/PerfectDarkZero''. Although, in the first game, her hair looks more brown than red, her personality is still ''FieryRedhead''.
* Subverted with Khalid in ''BaldursGate'', who is anything but fiery.
** Nalia in the sequel is a straightforward example, however.
* Cass in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' is a [[TheAlcoholic hard drinkin']], [[ClusterFBomb foul-mouthed]] spitfire of a woman who also happens to be mighty handy with a shotgun.
* ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' presents to us Zorne Sepperin, who's a short-tempered, impulsive, and moody little girl with love affections towards Graf Michael Sepperin (whom she regards as her father despite the absence of blood ties) and a knack for creating and throwing bombs [[{{Expy}} a la Bomberman]].
* Brooks in ''The Orion'' Conspiracy plays this trope straight to a T. She can cuss, she can fight, she can have sex, she can do a lot.
* ''HarvestMoon'' has various FieryRedHead's, though the most famous are the two Ann's.
* ''VideoGame/InThe1stDegree'' presents Ruby Garcia. She is a redhead (CaptainObvious), her first name refers to red, and she has the attitude. She is the girlfriend of the defendent James Tobin, and she wants to believe that he's not a murderer. In fact, asking the wrong questions (especially questions that make Tobin sound like a murderer) will get you an explosive outburst from her.
* [[MeaningfulName Ursula Unquenchablefire]], the Amazon leader in ''VideoGame/TheSpellcastingSeries''. [[InformedAbility Apparently quite the warrior and leader]], but not real big on foreplay.
* Liza, from ''Kaiser Knuckle''.
* From VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}, RED, Falcom, and Cave, though the latter is a subversion since her personality is cool as ice.
* The eponymous VideoGame/BattleGirl.
* VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe. A lot of his attacks are even fire related.
* Nadine from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'''s ''Point Lookout'' expansion pack.
* Mama from ''VideoGame/{{Cooking Mama}}'', despite looking like she's an innocent woman that loves to cook and not [[FireballEyeballs spoil her food]].
* Averted in ''StarCraft''. Sarah Kerrigan, with blood-red hair, has a [[IceQueen cool, calculating, and professional]] personality.
* Doug from ''VideoGame/RuneFactory4'' is a hot-tempered, red-headed dwarf. [[spoiler:But he's also capable of being cool and calculating, as his plot to get revenge on Ventuswill shows.]]
* The red-headed Gladiator from ''VideoGame/{{Sacred}}'' is the BigGuy among playable characters and a specialized mêlée fighter. According to the lines he occasionally shoots when fighting, he is also [[BloodKnight very enthousiastic to fight and kill]].
* In what could be another double subversion, ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' gives us Miss Fortune. She's red-headed and passionate... but falls more into the territory of cool-headed, teasing and seductive FemmeFatale MsFanservice, yet still has a competitive edge. That is, until she's told to use her ultimate skill, Bullet Time, in which she goes very fiery and let out a great laugh as she pelts you with bullets.
* Punk Giana from ''VideoGame/TheGreatGianaSisters'' and its modern counterparts.
* In the seventh installment of the ''VideoGame/DarkParables'', the Fairy Tale Detective meets Literature/{{Rapunzel}}'s betrothed, Prince Ross. He's a red-haired, red-eyed {{Hunk}} who wields both a FlamingSword and ElementalPowers of fire, and he's rather intense and comes across as more than a little angry. He's an extremely good person, however, and he loves Rapunzel devotedly.
* Captain Lorimette, in ''VideoGame/QueenAtArms'', is a regal and dignified LadyOfWar - but she's also very much this when her buttons are pressed.
* [[BigGood Mii Koryuji]] from ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' gets riled up by pretty much everyone. [[ActionGirl She also kicks lots of ass]] and is a [[TheCheerleader Cheerleader]] straight out of high school with GreenEyes.



[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' gives us [[http://magiccards.info/m10/en/132.html Chandra]] [[http://magiccards.info/zen/en/120.html Nalaar]], a young and impulsive [[PlayingWithFire pyromancer]] who is as short-tempered as she is dangerous. This makes her, both figuratively and literally, a [[IncrediblyLamePun fiery]] redhead on two levels--both in that her powers involve fire, and that [[FlamingHair her hair flares]] every time she activates her powers.
* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' TabletopRPG (Last Unicorn Games) supplement "Planetary Adventures". The adventure "The Enemy You Know" has a redheaded female engineer, who "can be hot-tempered and impulsive" and has a "tendency to charge into situations". She overhears a Vulcan woman speak a phrase in Romulan and confronts her, calling her a "dirty Romulan spy".
* The redhead Helena Daphnotarthius, a cleric of the Immortal Valerias, in the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' ''Dawn of the Emperors'' boxed set. She was "fiery in anger, in romance, in the pursuit of things she wants." She wanted to live "life to its fullest and promote the questionable virtues of reckless abandon and thoughtless enjoyment".
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has Angron, Primarch of the World Eaters. After he becomes a Daemon Prince, he's a literal redhead.
* ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'' supplement ''Cthulhu Companion'', adventure "The Rescue". The {{NPC}} Dr. Dare has red hair and "...his temper gets the best of him sometimes."
* Leona the pyrokinetic in ''TabletopGame/PsionicsTheNextStageInHumanEvolution'' is this, both literally and figuratively. The Firestarter archetype is even paired with a picture of her.

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' gives us [[http://magiccards.info/m10/en/132.html Chandra]] [[http://magiccards.info/zen/en/120.html Nalaar]], ''Webcomic/{{MAG ISA}}'' -- (subversion) [[http://mag-isa.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/119746 Claudita]] is a young red-head but violence is always her last resort.
* Oasis from ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. She tends to alternate between extreme giddiness (usually when Torg acts nice to her)
and impulsive extreme [[{{Yandere}} jealousy and rage]] (usually when something comes between her and Torg). {{Justified|Trope}} since these emotions were programmed into her by Dr. Steve. In addition, she's frequently accompanied by fire-related motifs such as ThePhoenix. It turns out that [[spoiler:"fiery" is literal; she's [[PlayingWithFire pyromancer]] pyrokinetic]].]]
* Kestrel from ''Webcomic/QueenOfWands''.
* White Mage from ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater''.
* Catalina from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''. Her catchphrase is [[NoIndoorVoice "JACKASSES!"]], and when angered, she's loud enough to make [[DistantReactionShot aliens in outer space pause and ask "What was that noise?"]]
** Nanase. Just Nanase.
* Wildy San from ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures''.
* Georgia's best friend Rita in ''Webcomic/FineSometimesRain'' is a fiery redhead
who is as short-tempered as always ready to defend her friends.
* Princess Voluptua from ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob''.
* Surma from ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''. Her daughter, Antimony, also has some of this personality, but it's almost completely tempered by [[EmotionlessGirl her stoicism]]. Annie has an associated fire motif, since she has a talent for etherically manipulating fire with [[AmplifierArtifact the blinker stone]]. And it's eventually revealed [[spoiler:Surma and Annie are both descended from a fire elemental.]]
-->'''Reynardine:''' (To Antimony) Haha! Well, you may have everyone fooled with your stoic facade, but not me! You have a fire in you, child, a fire that belonged to your mother!
* Samantha from ''Webcomic/MoltenBlade'', both a [[PlayingWithFire fiery]] redhead and the intended meaning.
* Monica Villareal from ''Webcomic/WapsiSquare'', although in comparison to [[BadassNormal her friend Shelly]] or the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot golem girls]], she doesn't particularly stick out in terms of fieryness.
* Ratheel of ''Webcomic/{{Juathuur}}'' is a male example.
* Sixx from ''Webcomic/{{Collar 6}}''.
* [[http://www.thebeastlegion.com/issue-07-page-9-her-power/ Fyre]] from the ''Webcomic/TheBeastLegion'' fit's the trope perfectly. Not only does she have read hair but is a fire bending master.
* Trawn from ''Webcomic/ElectricWonderland'', the red-headed editor-in-chief of the ''Nettropolis Free Press'', expresses strong passions for news reporting and keeping her friends/employees safe, although she also has a bit of a temper sometimes.
* Miriam from ''Webcomic/OutThere''.
* Scarlet 'Red' Macrumble from ''Webcomic/GirlsInSpace''.
* Tailii from [[http://comicshortsonline.thecomicseries.com/ Comic Shorts]].
* Haley Starshine from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''. [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch "Sneak attack- BITCH!"]]
** Haley is a bit of a subversion: she suffers from considerable self-loathing and feels it necessary to hide her true feelings much of the time, believing people wouldn't like her if they really knew her.
* Bob in ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge''.
* Dave from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', sort of - he was frequently assumed to be by the fanbase (possibly even given a nod on one of Hussie's Formsprings), but after the reveal that [[spoiler: he and Rose are siblings]], the fanbase eventually agreed on blonde. Hussie's current stance on the issue is that Dave's hair color is whatever you want it to be, so he can still be a Fiery Redhead if you want.
* Alexander Hamilton from ''Webcomic/TheDreamer''.
* The eponymous main character of ''Webcomic/SarahZero'' is an example of this. Sarah is headstrong, loud, and the guitarist in a rock band.
* Layla from ''Webcomic/FarOutThere'' [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1027704/page-57-clothes-in-the-future-must-stay-really-clean/ most]] [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1071313/page-240-blow-up/ definitely]] [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1145154/page-332-calm-down-before-you-hurt-yourself/ qualifies]].
* Freija from ''Webcomic/TheSenkari'' is [[http://www.the-senkari.com/2010/12/22/12222010/ implied]] to be this.
* Anja Baker from ''Webcomic/RegularGuy''. Though she mostly keeps it on a low simmer,
she is dangerous. This makes her, both figuratively also the character least likely to put up with BS.
* Benny of ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' is a hot, redheaded [[CuteMonsterGirl troll]] with a very short temper. She happily beats the living daylights out of anyone that irritates her...
and literally, she's a ''priestess''.
* Dana, [[WholesomeCrossdresser "Cookie's Elle-Boy Rival"]] in the ''Webcomic/JetDream'' "It's Cookie!" spinoff [[RemixComic Remix Comics]]. He's modeled on Chili Storm from ''ComicBook/MillieTheModel''.
* Scar from ''Webcomic/{{Cordless}}'', to a T.
* SKO and TKO from ''Webcomic/ElfBlood'' are normally generally quite calm and reserved, even kindly. Get them in the same room together and watch their tempers flare.
* Marron, the eggroll/bondage emporium waitress turned artist, from ''Webcomic/VoodooWalrus'' is an example of this as her introduction involves threatening a co-worker with an iron maiden and then smashing a phone book into the skull of one of the main characters when he gets a little too blatant with his flirtations.
** Mac could be seen as another example of this, but it's been over a year since she was last depicted with her natural red hair color.
* Mal from ''Webcomic/HeadTrip''. She ''can'' be calm, rational, and logical, but she is definitely a Heroic Sociopath and a ''lot'' more fun when she's being violent to the stupid people.
* Ash and (to a lesser extent) Missi from ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}.''
* Red in ''Webcomic/RedsPlanet.'' A particular BerserkButton is being called Red.
* Melissa Thayer, a fox scientist from ''Webcomic/{{Outworld}}''. She's nice most of the time, but she has her moments.
* Nin Wah the red panda from ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'', who sports a fiery FurryFemaleMane and will [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2010/01/31/bad-choice-of-words/ destroy you]] if you press her BerserkButton.
* The titular character of ''Webcomic/{{Nimona}}'' ''definitely'' qualifies, despite being a sidekick to NobleDemon Ballister Blackheart, she's certainly more bloodthirsty and energetic than her superior. Being a shapeshifter, her red hair doubles as her MorphicResonance, giving her forms an overall red tone.
* Guy from ''Webcomic/TwoGuysAndGuy''. She once said only considers Wayne her friend because she ''only'' dislikes him mildly. She had to take happy pills for her anger issues. And she said she hoped Wayne was dead for using the word "literally" wrong among other things.
* Cinna Grossul from ''Webcomic/{{Pacificators}}.'' She [[LadySwearsALot swears like a sailor,]] and ''always'' [[FlippingTheBird flips off]] her arch-nemesis/teammate [[ProperLady Muneca Powell]]. To top it off, she has PlayingWithFire powers… and if she's not careful, she'll become a ''literal'' [[BurningWithAnger fiery]]
[[IncrediblyLamePun fiery]] redhead on two levels--both in that her powers involve fire, and that [[FlamingHair her hair flares]] every time she activates her powers.

She overhears a Vulcan woman speak a phrase in Romulan and confronts her, calling her a "dirty Romulan spy".
* The redhead Helena Daphnotarthius, a cleric
Ellen, the {{Deuteragonist}}. She's the young sister of the Immortal Valerias, in the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' ''Dawn of the Emperors'' boxed set.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has Angron, Primarch of the World Eaters. After he becomes a Daemon Prince, Richard Dark from "Webcomic/{{Xenospora}}" is one. The first time we see him is when he's yelling at his colleague.
* Breaker from ''Webcomic/{{Break}}'' is
a literal redhead.

* Taken literally with the hot-tempered and red-headed Flame Princess in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' who often swings between adorable & cute and angry & violent.
%%* Katella from ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog''.
* ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'': Brittany. it's not sure if she's redhead, but DAMN, she's fiery.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'':
** Gwen fits this trope, but in the {{Time Skip}}ped sequel ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'', she seems [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks to have outgrown it]], unless you hurt her loved ones. That's when things start blowing up.
** Ben's Rath form is a FieryRedhead over most of his body, being an anthro tiger. He's also UnstoppableRage personified.
* Nonny from WesternAnimation/BubbleGuppies is an inversion. He's actually quite the [[TheStoic stoic.]]
%%* Ace [=McCloud=] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Centurions}}''.
%%* Atlanta from ''ClassOfTheTitans''. Theresa, to a lesser extent.
%%* Numbuh 86 in ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'', bordering on EvilRedhead.
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'': Averted by Jasmine "Jazz" Fenton. She wasn't a spitfire. She was a stuck-up (but caring) know-it-all. But her mother, Maddie, on the other hand...[[note]] but she's got brown hair; in fact, most fans think Jazz and her brother are adopted.[[/note]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'': Quinn Morgendorffer, when she gets really worked up. Usually suverted though, since she acts more like a DumbBlonde, despite having orange red hair.
* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'':
** Darkwing's adopted daughter Gosalyn. She is fierce and spirited and has red hair.
** Averted by the show's other notable red-haired character, Launchpad, who is a GentleGiant.
* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'': Dexter's family is split evenly between this and the DumbBlonde stereotype; he and his mother are fiery redheads and his sister and dad are happy-go-lucky yellow-haired [[TheDitz ditzes]].
%%* Beebe and Roger (and, at times, Judy) in ''{{Doug}}''.
* Averted by Sheila the Thief, of the WesternAnimation/DungeonsAndDragons cartoon, for she is not as much a boisterous fighter as her blonde little brother, Bobby...or her BlackBestFriend, Dianah.
* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'':
** Sarah is violent, screams a lot and has a HairTriggerTemper.
** Lee Kanker is a reckless, HotBlooded bully who also qualifies as EvilRedhead.
%%* Vicky from ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents''.
%%* Lois Griffin from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.
%%* Kyle from ''FanboyAndChumChum''.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'': Frankie, as Mr. Herriman and Bloo learn when they push her too far.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'':
** Fox. More determined than hot-tempered, however.
** Demona. As hot-tempered as her hair colour implies.
* ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'': Peg and Pistol form a mother-daughter pair of this. Peg is quite frightening when angry and is very assertive about her [[OnlySaneMan sensible opinions]] (unlike her ShrinkingViolet[=/=]ExtremeDoormat [[NoRespectGuy son]]) to the point she's actually able to control her otherwise bossy and dominating husband. Pistol is a GenkiGirl and a BrattyHalfPint.
%%* In ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', this is played straight with Manly Dan, but averted with his daughter, Wendy.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/{{Grojband}}'': Laney Penn bonus points for catching fire every so often.
* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'': Ernie Potts is a demolition man [[TheNapoleon Napoleon]] with a HairTriggerTemper. Though he is mostly bald, the hair he has left is red.
* Pepper Potts from ''IronManArmoredAdventures'' is a big time FieryRedhead and GenkiGirl.
%%* Jane from ''JaneAndTheDragon''.
%%* Saffi on ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' is this because she's CrazyAwesome.
%%* Jessie Bannon from ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures''.
%%* Shayera Hol/Hawkgirl from ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'': Kim has incredible drive and passion. Ironically, Animology calls these traits blue fox.
%%* The V.E.N.O.M warrior, Vanessa Warfield, from ''WesternAnimation/{{MASK}}''...although you may notice the dark streak on her hair.
%%* Kiva from ''WesternAnimation/{{Megas XLR}}''.
* ''WesternAnimation/MikeLuAndOg'' averted by Mike. While being a sports loving red haired girl, she is acutally calm and rather laid-back, compared to some shorter-tempered brunette princess named Lu. Though there are a few times when she's pushed over the edge like in "Sultans of Swat" and "To Serve Lu".
%%* Abraham Kane from ''{{WesternAnimation/Motorcity}}'', also an EvilRedhead.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** Rainbow Dash is a {{tomboy}} with tons of attitude, and though her [[MulticoloredHair mane has enough colours to fit her name]], her bangs are warmer colors (red, orange, and yellow) and are more prominent, while the cooler colors (green, blue, and purple) are mostly hidden behind her neck.
** Sunset Shimmer is ambitious, testy, sarcastic, hot-tempered, and red-haired -- although admittedly her hair's about an even mix of red and yellow.
%%* Teddy in ''MyLittlePonyTales''.
* ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn'': Pepper Ann Pearson, though she's more spacy and neurotic than fiery. In the uniform episode she admits that it's auburn, which other characters agree to once she tries to take credit for being the trope.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': Candance. However her long hair is more orange than red and is a overactive girl.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'':
** Subverted with Gretchen, as she's pretty easygoing, unless you make her ''really'' mad. She and raven-haired Spinelli actually swap their normal hair tropes: Gretchen's the brainy one (who ''was'' going to have black hair originally), while Spinelli's the fiery one. Played straight with Ashley Q.
** As flashbacks show us, Miss Finster was a redhead, and still fiery.
%%* Mackenzie Benders in ''WesternAnimation/RocketPower''.
* ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'': Bev Bighead can become this at times, mostly when she's irritated with Ed.
* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': [[ViolentGlaswegian The Scotsman]] is a loud, brutish warrior (and about the closest thing Jack has to a friend). Then there's his wife, who's even louder and more bad tempered than he is.
%%* Talon from ''WesternAnimation/SkeletonWarriors''.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** Kyle is this, often instigated as a result of [[{{Jerkass}} Cartman's]] antisemitism, racism, or greed. This can lead to his own {{Jerkass}} tendencies, approaching KnightTemplar at times. His mother, too, is a full blown fiery Jewish KnightTemplar redhead.
** Darryl Weathers, leader of an angry band of hicks bent on driving away the job-stealing "Goobacks" who immigrated from the future.
-->''"THEY TOOK OUR JOBS!"''
* ''WesternAnimation/SpidermanAndHisAmazingFriends'': Taken almost as literally as one possibly can with Firestar (she has brown hair in her human form).
* ''StarWarsTheCloneWars'': Death Watch member (and [[spoiler:Duchess Satine's sister]]) Bo-Katan [[spoiler: Kryze]]. Even though she is usually calm, she somewhat fits as a FieryRedhead due to being a rather aggressive character. Also is an EvilRedhead.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/StuntDawgs'': Sizzle, especially since she uses explosives!
%%* Volcana from ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''.
%%* He may be a minor character, but Johnny Sunspot is without a doubt the resident fiery redhead of SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo.
%%* Kimmy the [[TheCheerleader cheerleader]] LovableAlphaBitch from ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan''.
* ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'': If a headband counts as hair, Raphael certainly qualifies. Subverted in the comics, though, as all the turtles have red headbands.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': Starfire doesn't have the fiery temper ([[BewareTheNiceOnes unless you hurt her friends]]), but she's very passionate and [[GenkiGirl energetic]]. She even flies using "righteous fury!"
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTeddyRuxpin'': Young HotBlooded Prince Arin, whom the others often have to restrain from going off half-cocked charging into ''everything''. (Though his red hair is usually hidden underneath a helmet.)
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans'': Tyrone is usually a pretty mellow DeadpanSnarker, but he's been shown to have quite a temper in some episodes, like "Best Clowns in Town" and "Sinbad Sails Alone".
* ''TheBotsMaster'': Blitzy Zulander is easily the more hot-headed of the Zulander siblings, preferring full-on assaults against the Corp. She's also the main pilot of the combining ''HumongousMecha'' Jungle Fiver.
* ''TheDreamstone'': Amberly is usually [[WomenAreWiser rather level headed and soft spoken]]; however, her temper flares immensely at times. [[PityTheKidnapper The Urpneys know this]] [[CuteBruiser first hand]].
%%* Every woman in the Slaghoople bloodline in ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' -- Wilma's mother, Wilma, and Pebbles.
%%* Mallory [=McMallard=] from ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyDucks''.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'':
** Averted by calm, rational, redheaded Blossom. The 'fiery' one though is the brunette-haired Buttercup. Although she insists that she IS a fiery redhead in one of the interview promos for ''TheMovie''.
** Played straight with Princess Morbucks, who throws a tantrum when she doesn't get what she wants.
* Headstrong, passionate, and excitable Ray Stantz becomes one in ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' and its 90s successor ''WesternAnimation/ExtremeGhostbusters'' thanks to an AdaptationDyeJob (his hair is brown [Dan Aykroyd's natural hair color] in the movies). Ditto the Ghostbusters' SassySecretary Janine Melnitz, though to a lesser extent as her hair was already a reddish-brown color in the first movie.
%%* Doyle from ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays''.
%%* Groundskeeper Willie from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'': Sassette was this before Papa Smurf changed her into a real Smurf. That's where [[MeaningfulName she gets her name]]. Averted in the comic books, where she is more chatty than bratty when she was first created.
* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'': Otto is generally outgoing and friendly towards everyone around him, he doesn't appreciate it when adults are mean to him or do something incredibly stupid. Sometimes, the attitude towards these types of people are just plain spiteful. He will often argue and lose his temper all together a few times. Sometimes, he will work out a plan that has the sole purpose of simply humiliating someone, let alone get a mission completed.
%%* Izzy on the ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Total Drama]]'' series. In ''Revenge of the Island'', the normally level-headed Zoey can get this way [[InvokedTrope when provoked]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'':
** Subverted since the redhead Sam is a BadassBookworm and the brains of the group.
** However, Gabriella seems to be more spitfire than her daughter mentioned above.
* ''{{Transformers| Generation 1}}'':
** Cliffjumper is a hotheaded little red Autobot who is extremely paranoid and eager to blindly charge into a fight.
** Ironhide is a crusty old veteran, but is also eager to wade into a good fight. Has a red 'helmet' and main body.
** Hot Rod is brash, impetuous, and outspoken as a young Autobot, and retains a primarily red/magenta color. Averted later as he becomes solidly brick red as Rodimus Prime, but also becomes more morose, brooding, and jaded.
** Warpath is a shouty BoisterousBruiser with no subtlety and a love of combat, and turns into a maroon tank.
%%* Bloom from ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'', to some extent.
%%* WesternAnimation/YosemiteSam. Quite obviously.
* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'': Speedy, aka Red Arrow, was [[RageAgainstTheMentor ticked]] [[BerserkButton off]] at constantly being ComicBook/GreenArrow's sidekick and set off on his own. Despite this, he genuinely cares about his friends and looks after them. In secret.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Ruby is very much this, having a red tint in her hair along with being red overall. She is ''very'' HotBlooded, to the point of her evaporating an entire pool because of her anger.
* ''WesternAnimation/RainbowBrite'': Red Butler has orange hair and a red color motif. He is a headstrong boy.

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' gives us [[http://magiccards.info/m10/en/132.html Chandra]] [[http://magiccards.info/zen/en/120.html Nalaar]], a young and impulsive [[PlayingWithFire pyromancer]] who is as short-tempered as she is dangerous. This makes her, both figuratively and literally, a [[IncrediblyLamePun fiery]] redhead on two levels--both in that her powers involve fire, and that [[FlamingHair her hair flares]] every time she activates her powers.
* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' TabletopRPG (Last Unicorn Games) supplement "Planetary Adventures". The adventure "The Enemy You Know" has a redheaded female engineer, who "can be hot-tempered and impulsive" and has a "tendency to charge into situations". She overhears a Vulcan woman speak a phrase in Romulan and confronts her, calling her a "dirty Romulan spy".
* The redhead Helena Daphnotarthius, a cleric of the Immortal Valerias, in the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' ''Dawn of the Emperors'' boxed set. She was "fiery in anger, in romance, in the pursuit of things she wants." She wanted to live "life to its fullest and promote the questionable virtues of reckless abandon and thoughtless enjoyment".
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has Angron, Primarch of the World Eaters. After he becomes a Daemon Prince, he's a literal redhead.
* ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'' supplement ''Cthulhu Companion'', adventure "The Rescue". The {{NPC}} Dr. Dare has red hair and "...his temper gets the best of him sometimes."
* Leona the pyrokinetic in ''TabletopGame/PsionicsTheNextStageInHumanEvolution'' is this, both literally and figuratively. The Firestarter archetype is even paired with a picture of her.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Rena Ryuuguu from ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' keeps her fire well-concealed for the most part, but it's there.
-->'''Rena:''' When Keiichi-san is angry, he's twice [as scary as Oryou].\\
'''Keiichi:''' However, when Rena is angry she's twice as scary again.
* Battler Ushiromiya from ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi''.
** His half-sister Ange is an aversion of this trope.
* Aoko [[spoiler:and Akiha]] from ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' and '' VideoGame/MeltyBlood''. Aoko's hair is probably dyed, as it was brown when she was younger. Aoko is one of the strongest mages in the world who enjoys messing with people and [[StuffBlowingUp blowing stuff up]]. [[spoiler:Akiha's hair is normally a severe black, as befitting an {{ojou}}, but it TurnsRed when she consciously or unconsciously calls upon her demonic blood to power up. She fits this trope well, since she gets redder the more fiery she gets, and gets more fiery the redder she gets. She's still in control until the point that [[RedEyesTakeWarning her eyes turn red]] too, which is the sign that she's gone insane.]]
** Akiha once claimed that the redness was her "true" hair color, [[spoiler:but only in the sense that her "true" nature was demonic -- she was being rather negative at the time. Her cousin, Kouma, has more demon blood than she does and still normally has black hair, and he's not the kind of guy who would bother with disguises.]]
* Kevan, the Earl of Io from ''VisualNovel/{{Long Live The Queen}}''. His character portrait has a perpetual scowl and he's out for blood in both of his in-game appearances.

* ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'' gives us an excellent example in the [[PluckyGirl determined]], [[HotBlooded passionate]] and [[GenkiGirl energetic]] Lynne.
* Midna from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''.
** [[BigBad Ganondorf]] even more so, especially in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]''.
* Ladies and gentlemen: SelfDemonstrating/{{Bowser}}, [[BigBad King of the Koopas]] from Franchise/SuperMarioBros.
** He is even able to breathe fire.
** Princess Daisy of ''Super Mario Land''. Friend and unconfirmed cousin of Princess Peach, the redhead Daisy was stated as a tomboy in ''Mario Tennis'', her first modern appearance, and is known for her energetic, loud, and competitive character traits.
* Nariko from ''VideoGame/HeavenlySword''. There has perhaps never been so much red coming out of one head.
** Excepting, perhaps, cases of [[YourHeadAsplode massive cranial trauma]].
* Claus and Kumatora from ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}''.
* Atlas from ''VideoGame/MegaManZX Advent'' uses fire attacks when merged with Model F. ''[[ViewerGenderConfusion She]]'' doesn't mess around.
** Before that was ''VideoGame/MegaMan1's'' Fire Man, who was a [[IncrediblyLamePun red fieryhead]]. His ''MegaManPoweredUp'' depiction is HotBlooded to the point of sounding like [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Yosemite Sam]].
* The chestnut-haired AxCrazy Aran Ryan from the VideoGame/PunchOut series.
** Also the auburn-haired, militant steel machine, Von Kaiser.
* Excepting the game versions and art which depicted her as a blonde or brunette, Tyris Flare of the ''GoldenAxe'' series. A fiery redhead in that she was able to summon explosions and dragons with her magic.
* Tasha/Zadia from ''VideoGame/AdvanceWars: Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict''.
* Aika from ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia''. She seems to be aligned with the Red Moon, which embodies heat, as well.
* What ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'s'' Adell lacks in gender, he makes up in ridiculous levels of fieriness - both [[HotBlooded figuratively]] and [[PlayingWithFire literally]].
* Mars Adepts in ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' typically partner this trope with [[HotBlooded Hot Blood]] and PersonalityPowers, making them good cases of ColorCodedForYourConvenience. Red hair = [[PlayingWithFire fire!]] As of ''GoldenSunDarkDawn'', we have:
** Garet (hair is more brown in his character art, but red on his sprite and he fits the personality)
*** Garet's siblings both demonstrate this trope; his parents, less so.
** Jenna (hair is [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair maroon]], but the personality fits).
** Akafubu of Kibombo (subverting MagicalNegro in the process).
** Karst (surprisingly, the only Fire Clan member to follow this trope).
** Tyrell (considering Garet's his father).
** Eoleo the Champa (debuted in ''Golden Sun: The Lost Age'', but grew into the personality for ''Dark Dawn'').
* ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' features the sharp-tongued, passionate, brash tiefling thief Annah-Of-The-Shadows.
* Of all the Redheads in ''TheWitcher'', Princess Adda is the one who could be called fiery. [[MagicWarrior Triss]] has her moments but is more often the tactician in combat or politics, as does [[TheMedic Shanni]], but she is more often [[TheChick motherly]].
* Subverted in ''[[FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]''. Eliwood is a redhead, but he's very level-headed and somewhat of a TechnicalPacifist. The HotBlooded one among the lords is LightningBruiser Hector, who happens to have...''blue'' hair. Also subverted with Kent, who's an OfficerAndAGentleman and TheLancer to Lyn.
** Averted in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemSacredStones'' by the [[PhenotypeStereotype typically]] red-haired Jehannans, who are usually very friendly. Most notable example being [[NiceHat Joshua]], who is known for being a gambling addict, not hot-tempered.
** Seth from the same game is also very level-headed and [[KnightInShiningArmor noble.]]
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' gives us Sully, the redheaded ActionGirl from Chrom's Shepherds group. Can be potentially played straight by either Owain, Cynthia, or [[{{Tsundere}} Severa]] [[spoiler: from the KidFromTheFuture team]] too, but only if [[spoiler: either of them is fathered by a redheaded man; i.e, Gaius or a redhaired male Avatar.]] Averted by [[BadassBookworm Miriel or Laurent]], however.
* [[ActionGirl Monica]] [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Raybrandt]] in ''VideoGame/DarkCloud 2''. Even though the game's point of view is centered on Max, she's the leader in the team and has a...unique sense of humor, especially where Firbits are concerned.
* Kimmy Eckman from ''BackyardSports''.
* Steve Burnside from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica''.
* That Fighter sprite from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' caused nothing but trouble.
** [[Webcomic/EightBitTheater I hear that]] [[WelcomeToCorneria he likes swords]].
** Averted by the White Mage.
** Subverted in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' with [[DarkSkinnedRedhead Wakka]], who is probably the most laid back character in the game. He has his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txGwkowqqJg angry]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpsFe81I6bw moments]], though.
* House Harkonnen from the ''Dune'' games. While this trope may not be entirely noticeable in ''VideoGame/DuneII'' and ''Dune 2000'', this is very prevalent in ''VideoGame/EmperorBattleForDune''. Several of the Harkonnen people notably have red hair (including Baron Rakan, Copec, and plenty of the house's infantry) and this very house is known to be cruel even to their own. The Baron does not hesitate one bit to scold a field general who failed a mission, giving a warning like "if this inept performance continues, I'll have you skinned alive!" Indeed, when you view the first FMV cutscene for this house, you hear the previous general cry out in agony, getting tortured by a slow and excruciatingly painful death because he failed his superior leaders. In the cutscenes, Copec and Rakan have short tempers. In the first cutscene when Gunseng attempts to help his ailing father, Rakan pushes Gunseng away with a hint of anger and tells him to go away. The whole House of the Harkonnen is corrupt and only consider their own desires, hence the artificial alterations to most of Geidi Prime; hardly anything can grow there by itself and new things require the expense of older substances to develop.
* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': The Normandy crew has two redhead [=NPCs=]. One is the ThePollyanna, but the other is a hotheaded BraveScot who fits even if he's an engineer rather than a fighter.
** PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard can be one depending on player choices, especially now that the default female Shepard in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' is a SignificantGreenEyedRedhead.
* Inverted in ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'', in which (by hair color) Aribeth is the closest thing to a redhead among all of the [=NPCs=] but is also the most rational and collected of the entire cast (until the [[MindRape dreams]] begin).
* At first glance, this trope is averted in ''Dragon Age: Origins'', where pious "good girl" Leliana is a redhead and "bad girl" Morrigan is a brunette. But Morrigan is a frosty kind of dark - sexual but not emotional; whereas Leliana is a former seductress-assassin and potentially an affectionate romance option for the player's character (whether male or female).
** If Leliana becomes "hardened" due to her personal quest, she plays this trope perfectly straight from then on.
** Aveline from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' also seems to be one, and various redheaded [=NPCs=] play it straight, subvert it, etc.
* Lilith from ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' has ElementalPowers in a game otherwise mostly devoid of sorcery.
* Natalie from ''VideoGame/ApeEscape''.
* [[PlayingWithFire Axel]] from KingdomHearts.
* The titular heroine of ''[[AtelierSeries Atelier Liese]]''. [[spoiler:She is slightly tamer by the time she reappears in ''VideoGame/{{Atelier Annie|Alchemists of Sera Island}}'', but still.]]
* [[TraumaCenter Trauma Team]] features Maria Torres, who is in first response. She seems [[DarkSkinnedRedhead pretty tanned, too]].
* As stated above, Misty from ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue''. [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Flannery]] (who's a [[PlayingWithFire Fire-type]] Gym Leader) and [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Gardenia]] fit to a point, too.
** Maxie from ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' is an interesting subversion- despite being an EvilRedhead who likes PlayingWithFire, he doesn't have the personality!
** Mars from ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'', one of the Team Galactic admins who of all things has a short temper.
** Chili from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', Unova's resident Fire-type Gym Leader.
** Silver, the rival of the ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver''
** Pokémon example: Darmanitan, the absolutely ''berserk''-looking daruma doll gorilla, is covered in red fur. A literal example too, as it's a [[PlayingWithFire Fire]]-type. The series has a few other examples like this.
** From the NobunagasAmbition crossover, VideoGame/PokemonConquest gives us Kai, who has ''literal'' fiery red hair. Not in the FlamingHair sense; this woman's hair ''shapes'' like flames when she gets angry, and looks like an explosion when she get's shocked. Fittingly, her Perfect Link is Darmanitan, listed directly above.
** From the Pokémon ranger sideseries, we have Lavanna.
* [[BlackMagicianGirl Jessica]] from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'' is a classic [[{{Tsundere}} Tsunde-redhead]] with the [[GirlishPigtails pigtails to match]]. She's also the games' [[FetishFuelStationAttendant richest]] [[{{Stripperific}} source]] of Grade-A [[MsFanservice fanservice]].
** Ashlynn from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'' is an earlier example of a FieryRedhead in the series and, like Jessica from ''VIII'', [[BlackMagicianGirl specializes in offensive magic]] and thus is also fiery.
** And Alena from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIV'', who (despite the pointy hat) isn't even a magic user, but instead a princess who would sooner punch her problems away than act like the stereotypical princess her father wants her to be.
* Tsubaki of ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' is a rare example of this trope being DoubleSubverted. She's a redhead, but for all of the first game (where she was an NPC) she was a studious, level-headed, rather pleasant ProperLady. Where the double subversion kicks in is when she is introduced as a playable character with her own story in the second game: she's actually a ClingyJealousGirl to her love-interest Jin. [[spoiler:It goes so far that not only does she become a vengeful, screaming maniac whenever someone gets too close to him, she actually tries to murder her friend Noel after BigBad Hazama convinces her that Noel stole away her chance to be with him, and she performs a FaceHeelTurn]].
* [[BlackMagicianGirl Aurora]] from ''VideoGame/BlackSigil'', [[PlayingWithFire with powers to match]]. So. Many. {{Fireballs}}.
* Asch from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' is rude, crude and liable to shout at everyone [[spoiler: Except Natalia.]] [[spoiler: He has his reasons, such as a clone replacing him and his family leaving him for dead because of it.]]
* Joanna Dark from ''VideoGame/PerfectDark'' and its prequel ''VideoGame/PerfectDarkZero''. Although, in the first game, her hair looks more brown than red, her personality is still ''FieryRedhead''.
* Subverted with Khalid in ''BaldursGate'', who is anything but fiery.
** Nalia in the sequel is a straightforward example, however.
* Cass in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' is a [[TheAlcoholic hard drinkin']], [[ClusterFBomb foul-mouthed]] spitfire of a woman who also happens to be mighty handy with a shotgun.
* ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' presents to us Zorne Sepperin, who's a short-tempered, impulsive, and moody little girl with love affections towards Graf Michael Sepperin (whom she regards as her father despite the absence of blood ties) and a knack for creating and throwing bombs [[{{Expy}} a la Bomberman]].
* Brooks in ''The Orion'' Conspiracy plays this trope straight to a T. She can cuss, she can fight, she can have sex, she can do a lot.
* ''HarvestMoon'' has various FieryRedHead's, though the most famous are the two Ann's.
* ''VideoGame/InThe1stDegree'' presents Ruby Garcia. She is a redhead (CaptainObvious), her first name refers to red, and she has the attitude. She is the girlfriend of the defendent James Tobin, and she wants to believe that he's not a murderer. In fact, asking the wrong questions (especially questions that make Tobin sound like a murderer) will get you an explosive outburst from her.
* [[MeaningfulName Ursula Unquenchablefire]], the Amazon leader in ''VideoGame/TheSpellcastingSeries''. [[InformedAbility Apparently quite the warrior and leader]], but not real big on foreplay.
* Liza, from ''Kaiser Knuckle''.
* From VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}, RED, Falcom, and Cave, though the latter is a subversion since her personality is cool as ice.
* The eponymous VideoGame/BattleGirl.
* VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe. A lot of his attacks are even fire related.
* Nadine from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'''s ''Point Lookout'' expansion pack.
* Mama from ''VideoGame/{{Cooking Mama}}'', despite looking like she's an innocent woman that loves to cook and not [[FireballEyeballs spoil her food]].
* Averted in ''StarCraft''. Sarah Kerrigan, with blood-red hair, has a [[IceQueen cool, calculating, and professional]] personality.
* Doug from ''VideoGame/RuneFactory4'' is a hot-tempered, red-headed dwarf. [[spoiler:But he's also capable of being cool and calculating, as his plot to get revenge on Ventuswill shows.]]
* The red-headed Gladiator from ''VideoGame/{{Sacred}}'' is the BigGuy among playable characters and a specialized mêlée fighter. According to the lines he occasionally shoots when fighting, he is also [[BloodKnight very enthousiastic to fight and kill]].
* In what could be another double subversion, ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' gives us Miss Fortune. She's red-headed and passionate... but falls more into the territory of cool-headed, teasing and seductive FemmeFatale MsFanservice, yet still has a competitive edge. That is, until she's told to use her ultimate skill, Bullet Time, in which she goes very fiery and let out a great laugh as she pelts you with bullets.
* Punk Giana from ''VideoGame/TheGreatGianaSisters'' and its modern counterparts.
* In the seventh installment of the ''VideoGame/DarkParables'', the Fairy Tale Detective meets Literature/{{Rapunzel}}'s betrothed, Prince Ross. He's a red-haired, red-eyed {{Hunk}} who wields both a FlamingSword and ElementalPowers of fire, and he's rather intense and comes across as more than a little angry. He's an extremely good person, however, and he loves Rapunzel devotedly.
* Captain Lorimette, in ''VideoGame/QueenAtArms'', is a regal and dignified LadyOfWar - but she's also very much this when her buttons are pressed.
* [[BigGood Mii Koryuji]] from ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' gets riled up by pretty much everyone. [[ActionGirl She also kicks lots of ass]] and is a [[TheCheerleader Cheerleader]] straight out of high school with GreenEyes.

teenage years]].
* In the Literature/{{Branion}} series by Fiona Patton, the royal family of an alternate Britain is literally this. The sovereigns are the Jesus-style avatars of a fire god, and they commonly have red hair. They also have tempers, which is not surprising given that effectively having a fire god inside you is [[RoyallyScrewedUp not good for your mental stability]]. Justified by the presence in their family tree of [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Danes, Welsh and Irish]].
* Literature/GemmaDoyle and her mother.
* The ''Ashtown Burials'' series, by N.D. Wilson, has the reddish-brown haired Diana Boone. She doesn't have a particularly quick temper, but she is a skilled warrior and ace pilot, and you don't want to be on the wrong side of her when she does get angry.
* In ''Literature/ShamanOfTheUndead'', Zofia, aptly nicknamed Redhead, has HairTriggerTemper, especially when around [[TheStoic Brittle]] or [[ActionSurvivor Ida]], and is annoyed when others aren't as professional about their jobs as she is.
* Practically every female character in the novels of Creator/RobertAHeinlein. Even a few of the male characters qualify.
* [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Mara Jade Skywalker]], Luke's wife and DeadpanSnarker extraordinaire. She can get [[MamaBear very nasty]] if you hit her BerserkButton.
** Seth As is her son, Ben Skywalker. The striking similarities between the two (particularly their personalities) are brought up fairly often in profic, especially in ''[[Literature/LegacyOfTheForce Sacrifice]]'', and a LOT in fanfic. To be honest, probably the only notable physical feature he inherited from Luke are his blue eyes.
* Ygritte from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. All redheads are believed to be "kissed by fire" in the wildling culture and have a reputation for spirit. Rickon Stark inherited the Tully red hair and is the most expressive of the Stark children. And on the averted side, you have Sansa, Catelyn, and Melisandre, who express their anger in [[BewareTheNiceOnes different]] ways...
* ''Literature/HarryPotter''
** Ginny Weasley, as well as Molly and the rest of the Weasleys. A more mellow example is Percy, and he's regarded as a stick-in-the-mud.
** Harry's mother, Lily, was also like this, mostly around James before they ended up hooking up. Hmm, maybe the Potter men have a thing for fiery redheads.
* Literature/CiaphasCain '''HERO OF THE IMPERIUM''''s comrades Colonel Kasteen and Trooper (later Corporal) Magot fit this trope to a T, Magot almost to the point of being a PsychoLesbian. And, no, the two redheads are not a couple.
* C. L. Moore's Literature/JirelOfJoiry.
* Calliope in John Barnes's ''Literature/OneForTheMorningGlory''.
* Annie, aka Naughty Nan, in TheFilmOfTheBook, at least, of ''[[LittleWomen Little Men]]''.
* ''Literature/AnneOfGreenGables'':
** Justified with Anne Shirley whose temper was at its fieriest when she was teased about her red hair (being one of the few characters whose fire is connected to their coloring). She chewed out the neighborhood busybody and also responded to being called "Carrots" by breaking her slate over a schoolmate's head. Nobody ever teased her about her red hair again, after the social snubbing Gilbert got for five or so years. Ironically, they end up marrying. [[note]] It's ironic for Anne. That was Gilbert's goal [[LoveAtFirstPunch since the beginning]]. [[/note]]
** Anne never quite gets over her dislike of her red hair. She didn't even like it when her ''children'' inherited it. When Jem is born and the nurse tells her his hair will be red, Gilbert reports to Marilla that "Anne is furious with her, and I'm tickled to death!"
* ''[[PrydainChronicles The Chronicles of Prydain]]''
** Princess Eilonwy is the extremely temperamental {{Tsundere}} ActionGirl whose temper is feared even by her friends, and especially her [[WellExcuseMePrincess love interest]].
** The boisterous King Smoit, who is jolly and personable with his friends, but unleashes a warrior's temper on those who anger him.
* Dylan Marvil from ''Literature/TheClique''.
* Aviendha (and, to a lesser extent, all Aiel women)
from the same game [[Literature/TheWheelOfTime Wheel of Time]] series behave like this. They are quite proficient with the spears and knives they threaten men who make unwanted advances with.
* Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's daughter Longstocking, from the ''Literature/PippiLongstocking'' series (and subsequent adaptations). Don't mess with this [[CuteBruiser tank of a little girl]].
* In Robert Graves' ''King Jesus'', Jesus has red hair, that being one of the eight "signs of royalty".
* Herrenna the Henna-Haired Harridan, a side character in ''Discworld/TheLightFantastic'' has red hair (per her title) and absolutely no patience or pity for either Rincewind or Twoflower. Oh, and she has a [[{{BFS}} very big sword]].
* "Red" from ''Literature/GoodOmens''.
** Also, Pepper.
* Alanna of Trebond of ''Literature/SongOfTheLioness'' (the first book in the ''Literature/TortallUniverse'') has bright red hair and a temper to match. Her squire later remarks how she's known for her sharp edges--sword, knife, and tongue.
* Ditto with Tris in Tammy's ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'' series. She's very prickly from years of verbal abuse and abandonment. She does eventually warm up to her new friends, but she's still quick to sarcasm and doesn't tolerate fools gladly.
* Talea in Creator/AlanDeanFoster's ''Literature/{{Spellsinger}}''.
* Ce'Nedra from David Eddings's ''Literature/{{Belgariad}}''. Not just her husband Belgarion, not just their royal court, the ''entire kingdom'' of Riva
is focused on keeping Queen Ce'Nedra happy. Because the alternative is just too grisly to contemplate.
* Renn from ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfAncientDarkness''.
* Squirrelflight of ''Literature/WarriorCats'' would qualify as a Fiery Redpelt.
** Her mother, Sandstorm, was one as well.
** Red, who defies her father's wishes to pursue a romance with her [[StarCrossedLovers Star-Crossed Lover]].
* Maedhros, Amrod, and Amras from Creator/JRRTolkien's ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' are the only elves to be described as redheads who fit the personality type. They're fierce, rash, more violent than is really healthy, and not particularly wise or patient... but then so are all their darker-haired siblings. A lot of fans assume their mother Nerdanel's
also very level-headed redheaded, thought the author only ever said her ''father'' is, and [[KnightInShiningArmor noble.both of their personalities are the complete opposite: calm, soft-spoke, patient, and wise. They also had the sense not to join the rebellion of the Noldor, which is why they're still alive.
* Karen in ''Literature/TheThreeWorldsCycle''. Specifically in the first quartet, where she appears as a main character. She takes on Rulke, for Io's sake, and harasses every main character through the whole quartet. And she just happens to be described as having "extremely fiery red hair"...
* Sarah in ''Literature/TalesOfAnMazingGirl''is pretty firey in the right circumstances, if she often keeps her sass to herself.
* Jennsen Rahl in the Literature/SwordOfTruth series. In-story, red hair is often (falsely) stereotyped as the hair color of ''witches'' among the blond-haired D'Haran purebloods, rather than indicative of personality.
* [[TheChick April O'Brien]] of ''Literature/{{Everworld}}'', who also has GreenEyes and an Irish ancestry, perhaps to sharpen the contrast between her and [[SiblingYinYang her half-sister]], who is a [[BlondesAreEvil blond]], [[LonersAreFreaks antisocial]] EmotionlessGirl.
* Ysabeau Wilce's ''Crackpot Hall'' series has both male and female examples with Hotspur and [[TheButcher Butcher Brakespeare]] respectively.
* Randle Patrick [=McMurphy=], in ''Literature/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest''.
* Karen from ''Literature/DragonsInOurMidst''.
* Red in Creator/AaronAllston's ''Literature/GalateaIn2D''; not only does Penny play WomenAreWiser in their BattleCouple, when Penny is dying and only their boss can save her, Red clearly has to fight to keep begging him to do so instead of attacking him.
* Terry Brooks' [[Literature/{{Shannara}} Voyage of the Jerle Shannara]] introduces Rue Meridian, who steals airships single-handedly and kills lizard-men, and you had better not tell her she can't.
* Wisty of ''Literature/WitchAndWizard'' is a FieryRedhead who can actually ''light herself on fire''.
* Bronwyn in ''Bronwyn's Bane''. Living with a serious curse increases her anger management issues.
* Clementine from ''The Liberation of Clementine Tipton''.
* Maggy Mulligan from ''Faraway Dream''.
* Gwen Jones from the ''Cherry Ames'' mysteries.
* Madeline from ''Madeline''.
* The Fire-witches in the Literature/EnchantedForestChronicles deserve special mention: when they get angry enough (which is often), their hair ''explodes''.
* Sioned, Sionell, and Feylin, among others of Melanie Rawn's ''Literature/DragonPrince'' and ''Literature/DragonStar'' trilogies.
* Margot Maynard in Elinor M Brent-Dyer's Literature/ChaletSchool series. Her hair is constantly described as 'reddish-gold' and she has an absolutely rotten temper, which she blames on her 'demon'. She tries to control it, but it often gets the better of her, culminating in her nearly killing a girl with a bookend in ''The Chalet School Triplets''. Her cousin Sybil Russell also qualifies, at least as a child, until an accident with a kettle and her younger sister [[BreakTheHaughty has a drastic effect on her personality]].
* ''Literature/IRobot'' has engineer Mike Donovan, described as possessed of perpetually unkempt red hair, a short temper, and a generally HotBlooded personality, in contrast to his calmer dark-haired work partner Gregory Powell.
* Felicity of the Literature/AmericanGirlsCollection is a spunky, spritely colonial girl, full of energy and independence.
* Princess Elizabeth of Literature/TheRoyalDiaries' ''Elizabeth I: Red Rose of the House of Tudor'' can swear up a storm when she wants to.
* The main character of the Literature/DearAmerica book ''A Coal Miner's Bride: The Diary of Anetka Kaminska'' complains about everything about her looks except her red hair. At one point, she suddenly remembered that she was her mother's fiery redhead and started yelling at her ungrateful husband with a list of the things she does for him.
* 'Red' Kelly and his sister Kelly Kelly in the ''Literature/YoungBond novels''. In fact, the whole Kelly clan might qualify.
* 'Red' Blaze from the Civil War and Floating Outfit novels of Creator/JTEdson. Blaze is the most hotheaded and impetuous of Edson's heroes.
* Literature/InDeath series: Feeney has ginger hair. He may seem rather calm, but he can be explosive when he's angry.
* Literature/TimeScout: Margo Smith.
* Rachel Elizabeth Dare in ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''. Although [[StealthPun it's never]] [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]], even her initials spell [[MeaningfulName R.E.D.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' gives us Sully, the redheaded ActionGirl from Chrom's Shepherds group.

* [[ActionGirl Monica]] [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Raybrandt]] in ''VideoGame/DarkCloud 2''. Even though the game's point of view is centered on Max, she's the leader in the team
Creator/FernMichaels: just ask Kathryn Lucas and has a...unique sense of humor, especially where Firbits are concerned.
* Kimmy Eckman from ''BackyardSports''.
* Steve Burnside from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica''.
* That Fighter sprite from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' caused nothing but trouble.
** [[Webcomic/EightBitTheater I hear that]] [[WelcomeToCorneria he likes swords]].
** Averted by the White Mage.
** Subverted in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' with [[DarkSkinnedRedhead Wakka]], who is probably the most laid back character in the game. He has his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txGwkowqqJg angry]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpsFe81I6bw moments]], though.
* House Harkonnen from the ''Dune'' games. While this trope may not be entirely noticeable in ''VideoGame/DuneII'' and ''Dune 2000'', this is very prevalent in ''VideoGame/EmperorBattleForDune''. Several of the Harkonnen people notably
Maggie Spritzer. They have red hair (including Baron Rakan, Copec, and plenty of the house's infantry) and this very house attitude to match!
* In "Nobody Here But—", a short story by Creator/IsaacAsimov, protagonist Cliff Anderson
is known to be cruel even to their own. The Baron deeply in love with his red-haired girlfriend Mary Ann, but does not hesitate one bit to scold a field general who failed a mission, giving a warning like "if this inept performance continues, I'll quite have you skinned alive!" Indeed, when you view the first FMV cutscene for this house, you hear courage to ask her to marry him. Throughout the previous general cry out in agony, getting tortured by a slow story Cliff talks about how wonderful Mary Ann is, but always amends his statement with "but she does have red hair;" she [[InvokedTrope acts feisty and excruciatingly painful death aggressive because he failed his superior leaders. that is how girls with red hair act]].
*
In Tom Robbins' ''Still Life With Woodpecker'', in addition to the cutscenes, Copec two red-haired protagonists (FallenPrincess Leigh Cherry and Rakan have {{Outlaw}} Bernard Mickey Wrangle), there's a involved sideplot/conspiracy theory around the extraterrestrial origins of redheads.
** In Asimov's Literature/LuckyStarr series, Lucky's sidekick John Bigman Jones has pale red hair, a
short tempers. In the first cutscene when Gunseng attempts to help his ailing father, Rakan pushes Gunseng away with a hint of anger temper, and tells him to go away. The whole House of the Harkonnen is corrupt and only consider their own desires, hence the artificial alterations to most of Geidi Prime; hardly anything can grow there by itself and new things require the expense of older substances to develop.
* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': The Normandy crew has two redhead [=NPCs=]. One is the ThePollyanna, but
a generally emotional nature. Lucky, on the other hand, is a hotheaded BraveScot who fits even if he's an engineer rather than a fighter.

calm and brown-haired.
* Inverted in ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'', in which (by hair color) Aribeth is the closest thing The princesses of ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'' are all noted for having red hair, referred to as "the royal red" at a redhead among few points. Each princess has a different personality and none are exactly mercurial, but strength and passion are part of all of the [=NPCs=] but is also the most rational and collected of the entire cast (until the [[MindRape dreams]] begin).
them.
* At first glance, this trope is averted in ''Dragon Age: Origins'', where pious "good girl" Leliana is a redhead and "bad girl" Morrigan is a brunette. But Morrigan is a frosty kind of dark - sexual but not emotional; whereas Leliana is a former seductress-assassin and potentially an affectionate romance option for the player's character (whether male or female).
** If Leliana becomes "hardened" due to her personal quest, she plays this trope perfectly straight
[[RedheadedHero Cord MaKiy]] from then on.
** Aveline from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' also seems to be one, and various redheaded [=NPCs=] play it straight, subvert it, etc.
* Lilith from ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' has ElementalPowers in a game otherwise mostly devoid of sorcery.
* Natalie from ''VideoGame/ApeEscape''.
* [[PlayingWithFire Axel]] from KingdomHearts.
* The titular heroine of ''[[AtelierSeries Atelier Liese]]''. [[spoiler:She is slightly tamer by
the time she reappears in ''VideoGame/{{Atelier Annie|Alchemists of Sera Island}}'', but still.]]
* [[TraumaCenter Trauma Team]] features Maria Torres, who is in first response. She seems [[DarkSkinnedRedhead pretty tanned, too]].
* As stated above, Misty from ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue''. [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Flannery]] (who's a [[PlayingWithFire Fire-type]] Gym Leader) and [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Gardenia]] fit to a point, too.
** Maxie from ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' is an interesting subversion- despite being an EvilRedhead who likes PlayingWithFire, he doesn't have the personality!
** Mars from ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'', one of the Team Galactic admins who of all things has a short temper.
** Chili from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', Unova's resident Fire-type Gym Leader.
** Silver, the rival of the ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver''
** Pokémon example: Darmanitan, the absolutely ''berserk''-looking daruma doll gorilla, is covered in red fur. A literal example too, as
''Literature/{{ColSec Trilogy}}'', although it's a [[PlayingWithFire Fire]]-type. The series has a few other examples like this.
** From the NobunagasAmbition crossover, VideoGame/PokemonConquest gives us Kai, who has ''literal'' fiery red hair. Not
somewhat mitigated by his introversion.
* Jessie
in the FlamingHair sense; this woman's ''High Society'' by Creator/BenElton. Her hair ''shapes'' like flames when she gets angry, and looks like an explosion when she get's shocked. Fittingly, her Perfect Link colour (dark auburn/reddish-brown) is Darmanitan, listed directly above.
** From the Pokémon ranger sideseries, we have Lavanna.
* [[BlackMagicianGirl Jessica]] from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'' is a classic [[{{Tsundere}} Tsunde-redhead]]
referred to only once, but combined with the [[GirlishPigtails pigtails to match]]. She's also the games' [[FetishFuelStationAttendant richest]] [[{{Stripperific}} source]] of Grade-A [[MsFanservice fanservice]].
** Ashlynn from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI''
her personality she is an earlier example of a FieryRedhead in the series and, like Jessica from ''VIII'', [[BlackMagicianGirl specializes in offensive magic]] and thus is also fiery.
** And Alena from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIV'', who (despite the pointy hat) isn't even a magic user, but instead a princess who would sooner punch her problems away than act like the stereotypical princess her father wants her to be.
* Tsubaki of ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' is a rare
obvious example of this trope.
* Kaylana the druid in ''Literature/{{Villains by Necessity}}''. Living up to the
trope being DoubleSubverted. by answering any attempts to approach her with a staff knocked over the poor man's head.
* Prince Bryan in ''Literature/SummersAtCastleAuburn'' is every negative stereotype associated with red hair.
* Clary Fray from ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'', is easily upset and often lashes out at people.
* The main protagonist of the ''Literature/CronusChronicles'', Charlotte, is the grumpy variety.
* ''Creator/SimonaAhrnstedt'' gives us Beatrice Löwenström in her debut novel ''Literature/{{Overenskommelser}}''.
She's intelligent, competent and assertive. But alas, many people in this era (the 1880s) prefer quiet and subservient women. And being at the mercy of her abusive uncle, who bullies her into a marriage with a man, who treats women like dirt under his shoes, she finds that out the hard way. But she's not afraid to call her oppressors out on what creeps they are, even if that only makes them even angrier with her...
** Averted with Beata Jensdotter in "De skandalösa". Despite being
a redhead, but for all of the first game (where she was an NPC) she was a studious, level-headed, rather pleasant ProperLady. Where the double subversion kicks in is when she is introduced as a playable character with her own story in the second game: she's actually less fiery than the brunette protagonist Magdalena.
* ''[[Literature/AMagesPower A Mage's Power]]'': The Bladi Clan is PlayingWithATrope. They all have red hair as
a ClingyJealousGirl to her love-interest Jin. [[spoiler:It goes so far that not dominant trait but their temperments vary.

* [[BlackMagicianGirl Aurora]]
Fiona from ''VideoGame/BlackSigil'', [[PlayingWithFire with powers to match]]. So. Many. {{Fireballs}}.

''Literature/TheGiver''. She is rude, crude and liable to shout at everyone [[spoiler: Except Natalia.]] [[spoiler: He has his reasons, such as a clone replacing him and his family leaving him for dead because of it.]]
* Joanna Dark from ''VideoGame/PerfectDark'' and its prequel ''VideoGame/PerfectDarkZero''. Although, in the first game, her hair looks more brown than red, her personality is still ''FieryRedhead''.
* Subverted with Khalid in ''BaldursGate'', who is anything but fiery.
** Nalia in the sequel is a straightforward example, however.
* Cass in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' is a [[TheAlcoholic hard drinkin']], [[ClusterFBomb foul-mouthed]] spitfire of a woman who also happens
said to be mighty handy with a shotgun.
* ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' presents to us Zorne Sepperin, who's a short-tempered, impulsive,
calm and moody little girl with love affections towards Graf Michael Sepperin (whom she regards as serene from Jonas.

* ''HarvestMoon'' has various FieryRedHead's, though Katelyn, the most famous are the two Ann's.

She is the girlfriend of the defendent James Tobin, and she wants to believe that he's not a murderer. In fact, asking the wrong questions (especially questions that make Tobin sound like a murderer) will get you an explosive outburst

* Mama from ''VideoGame/{{Cooking Mama}}'', despite looking like

* Averted in ''StarCraft''. Sarah Kerrigan, with blood-red hair, has a [[IceQueen cool, calculating, and professional]] personality.
* Doug from ''VideoGame/RuneFactory4'' is a hot-tempered, red-headed dwarf. [[spoiler:But he's also capable

she subsequently mellows out a bit.
* In what could be another double subversion, ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' gives us Miss Fortune. Iris of ''Literature/TheFirstDwarfKing'' definitely counts. She's red-headed and passionate... but falls more into an ActionGirlfriend to the territory of cool-headed, teasing and seductive FemmeFatale MsFanservice, yet still has a competitive edge. That is, until hero, Jani.
** Averted by [[TheHighQueen Aristomache]]; while
she's told to use her ultimate skill, Bullet Time, in which a capable LadyOfWar, she goes very fiery acts calm and let out a great laugh as she pelts you with bullets.
* Punk Giana from ''VideoGame/TheGreatGianaSisters'' and its modern counterparts.

* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': The female District 10 Tribute in ''Catching Fire'', being

He's a red-haired, red-eyed {{Hunk}} who wields both a FlamingSword and ElementalPowers only redhead of fire, and he's rather intense and comes across as more than a little angry. He's an extremely good person, however, and he loves Rapunzel devotedly.
* Captain Lorimette, in ''VideoGame/QueenAtArms'', is a regal and dignified LadyOfWar - but she's also very much this when her buttons are pressed.

* Bob in ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge''.
* Dave from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', sort of - he was frequently assumed to be by the fanbase (possibly even given a nod on one of Hussie's Formsprings), but after the reveal that [[spoiler: he and Rose are siblings]], the fanbase eventually agreed on blonde. Hussie's current stance on the issue is that Dave's hair color is whatever you want it to be, so he can still be a Fiery Redhead if you want.
* Alexander Hamilton from ''Webcomic/TheDreamer''.
* The eponymous main character of ''Webcomic/SarahZero'' is an example of this. Sarah is headstrong, loud, and the guitarist in a rock band.
* Layla from ''Webcomic/FarOutThere'' [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1027704/page-57-clothes-in-the-future-must-stay-really-clean/ most]] [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1071313/page-240-blow-up/ definitely]] [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1145154/page-332-calm-down-before-you-hurt-yourself/ qualifies]].

* Anja Baker from ''Webcomic/RegularGuy''. Though she mostly keeps it on a low simmer, she is also the character least likely to put up with BS.
* Benny of ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' is a hot, redheaded [[CuteMonsterGirl troll]] with a very short temper. She happily beats the living daylights out of anyone that irritates her...and she's a ''priestess''.

* Scar from ''Webcomic/{{Cordless}}'', to a T.
* SKO and TKO from ''Webcomic/ElfBlood'' are normally generally quite calm and reserved, even kindly. Get them in the same room together and watch their tempers flare.
* Marron, the eggroll/bondage emporium waitress turned artist, from ''Webcomic/VoodooWalrus'' is an example of this as her introduction involves threatening a co-worker with an iron maiden and then smashing a phone book into the skull of one of the main characters when he gets a little too blatant with his flirtations.
** Mac could be seen as another example of this, but it's been over a year since she was last depicted with her natural red hair color.
* Mal from ''Webcomic/HeadTrip''. She ''can'' be calm, rational, and logical, but she is definitely a Heroic Sociopath and a ''lot'' more fun when she's being violent to the stupid people.
* Ash and (to a lesser extent) Missi from ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}.''
* Red in ''Webcomic/RedsPlanet.'' A particular BerserkButton is being called Red.
* Melissa Thayer, a fox scientist from ''Webcomic/{{Outworld}}''. She's nice most of the time, but she has her moments.

* The titular character of ''Webcomic/{{Nimona}}'' ''definitely'' qualifies, despite being a sidekick to NobleDemon Ballister Blackheart, she's certainly more bloodthirsty and energetic than her superior. Being a shapeshifter, her red hair doubles as her MorphicResonance, giving her forms an overall red tone.
* Guy from ''Webcomic/TwoGuysAndGuy''. She once said only considers Wayne her friend because she ''only'' dislikes him mildly. She had to take happy pills for her anger issues. And she said she hoped Wayne was dead for using the word "literally" wrong among other things.
* Cinna Grossul from ''Webcomic/{{Pacificators}}.'' She [[LadySwearsALot swears like a sailor,]] and ''always'' [[FlippingTheBird flips off]] her arch-nemesis/teammate [[ProperLady Muneca Powell]].

* Alexander Hamilton from ''Webcomic/TheDreamer''.
* The eponymous main
Renee Zellweger's character of ''Webcomic/SarahZero'' is an example of this. Sarah is headstrong, loud, stops being a wimpy woman and dyes her hair red to show it.
* Charlene, played by AmyAdams in ''Film/TheFighter'', who delivers
the guitarist immortal line "Don't call me a skank. I'll rip that nasty hair right outta your fuckin' head."
* Rose
in a rock band.
* Layla from ''Webcomic/FarOutThere'' [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1027704/page-57-clothes-in-the-future-must-stay-really-clean/ most]] [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1071313/page-240-blow-up/ definitely]] [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1145154/page-332-calm-down-before-you-hurt-yourself/ qualifies]].
* Freija from ''Webcomic/TheSenkari'' is [[http://www.the-senkari.com/2010/12/22/12222010/ implied]] to be this.
* Anja Baker from ''Webcomic/RegularGuy''. Though she mostly keeps it on a low simmer, she is also the character least likely to put up with BS.
* Benny of ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup''
''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'' is a hot, redheaded [[CuteMonsterGirl troll]] with a very short temper. She happily beats the living daylights out of anyone that irritates her...and she's a ''priestess''.
* Dana, [[WholesomeCrossdresser "Cookie's Elle-Boy Rival"]] in the ''Webcomic/JetDream'' "It's Cookie!" spinoff [[RemixComic Remix Comics]]. He's modeled on Chili Storm from ''ComicBook/MillieTheModel''.
* Scar from ''Webcomic/{{Cordless}}'', to a T.
* SKO and TKO from ''Webcomic/ElfBlood'' are normally generally quite calm and reserved,
pistol even kindly. Get them in the same room together and watch their tempers flare.
* Marron, the eggroll/bondage emporium waitress turned artist, from ''Webcomic/VoodooWalrus'' is an example of this as her introduction involves threatening a co-worker with an iron maiden and then smashing a phone book into the skull of one of the main characters when he gets a little too blatant with his flirtations.
** Mac could be seen as another example of this, but it's been over a year since she was last depicted with her natural red hair color.
* Mal from ''Webcomic/HeadTrip''. She ''can'' be calm, rational, and logical, but she is definitely a Heroic Sociopath and a ''lot'' more fun
when she's being violent to polite. At lunch she tells Mr. Ismay that Dr. Freud's ideas about the stupid people.
* Ash and (to a lesser extent) Missi from ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}.''
* Red in ''Webcomic/RedsPlanet.'' A
male preoccupation with size might be of particular BerserkButton is being called Red.
* Melissa Thayer, a fox scientist

* Nin Wah the red panda from ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'', who sports a fiery FurryFemaleMane and will [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2010/01/31/bad-choice-of-words/ destroy you]] if you press her BerserkButton.
* The titular character of ''Webcomic/{{Nimona}}'' ''definitely'' qualifies, despite being a sidekick to NobleDemon Ballister Blackheart,
tells him that she's certainly more bloodthirsty and energetic rather be Jack's whore than her superior. Being a shapeshifter, her red hair doubles as her MorphicResonance, giving her forms an overall red tone.
* Guy from ''Webcomic/TwoGuysAndGuy''. She once said only considers Wayne her friend because she ''only'' dislikes him mildly. She had to take happy pills for her anger issues. And she said she hoped Wayne was dead for using the word "literally" wrong among other things.
Cal's wife and spits in Cal's face.
%%* Black Widow in the ''MarvelCinematicUniverse'', to some extent.
* Cinna Grossul from ''Webcomic/{{Pacificators}}.'' She [[LadySwearsALot swears like a sailor,]] and ''always'' [[FlippingTheBird flips off]] her arch-nemesis/teammate [[ProperLady Muneca Powell]]. To top it off, she has PlayingWithFire powers… and if ''Film/DiamondsAreForever''. When Film/JamesBond first meets Tiffany Case, she's not careful, she'll become a ''literal'' [[BurningWithAnger fiery]] [[IncrediblyLamePun redhead]].
* ''[[http://www.absolutehotsister.com/ Absolute Hot Sister]]''
outspoken, quite rude to him, and has Ellen, a bit of a temper. She changed wigs (from blonde to brunette), then appeared as a redhead.
-->'''Film/JamesBond:''' I don't care much for redheads. Terrible tempers. But somehow it seems to suit you.\\
'''Tiffany:''' It's my own.
** [[{{Tsundere}} Natalya]] is all over this trope in ''Film/{{GoldenEye}}''.
* The Ur-Fiery redhead, Mary-Kate Dannaher in John Ford's ''Film/TheQuietMan''. As another character puts it, "That red hair is no lie!" She tries to slug out John Wayne himself! Maureen O'Hara's finest FieryRedhead hour.
** Maureen O'Hara was a real-life example herself: during filming of one scene where Creator/JohnFord kept complaining about her reacting to her hair being blown into her eyes, she snapped "What would a bald son-of-a-bitch know about getting hair in his eyes?!"
* Bortai,
the {{Deuteragonist}}. She's redheaded Tartar princess played by Susan Hayward in the young sister JohnWayne flop ''The Conqueror''.
* Ginny Weasley from ''Film/HarryPotter'' is a double subversion as she is usually soft spoken but:
-->'''Harry:''' Okay, so this morning I'm going to be putting you all though a few drills, just to set things straight...\\
[Everybody keeps talking]\\
'''Harry:''' Quiet, please!\\
[Nobody listens to him]\\
'''Ginny:''' SHUT IT!\\
[Silence]\\
'''Harry:''' ...thanks.
** In fact, many fo the Weasleys fit this trope. Ron is probably the most obvious exapmle, being a man of [[HotTemper short temper]] and many [[BerserkButton soft spots]], like his family's financial straits, his inferiority complexes (in plural), his romantic inaptitude, mudblood shaming, and pretty much anything that comes out of [[SmugSnake Draco Malfoy's]] mouth.
* Free-spirited and flamboyant Delysia Lafosse from ''Film/MissPettigrewLivesForADay''.
* The fabulous Miss Vida Boheme in ''Film/ToWongFooThanksForEverythingJulieNewmar''. Subverted somewhat in that Vida Boheme is really Patrick Swayze in drag, and the red hair is a wig.
* Mr. Clarence Day, Sr. of ''Life With Father'' is a male example.
* April, the main character's friend in ''Film/DefinitelyMaybe'', forcefully tells him how to propose to his girlfriend.
* KnifeNut Lynne from ''Film/TheWarriorsWay''.
* Ann Sheridan in several movies from the late 1930s/early 1940s.
* ''Film/XMen'':
** Mystique. Given it's her natural color - in mutant form. [[spoiler:After she's "cured", her natural hair color is raven black]].
** Jean Grey, especially as the Dark Phoenix in ''Film/XMenTheLastStand''.
** Sean Cassidy/Banshee from ''Film/XMenFirstClass''. His actor even auditioned because it was a rare ginger superhero. Ironically, Sean's one
of the {{Protagonist}} Kevin who not-so-secretly least hot-headed and combative of the students, with those titles going moreso to Alex and Raven.
** Yukio from ''Film/TheWolverine''. Though it's clearly not her natural hair color.
* Shannon of ''{{Film/Far and Away}}'' fits this easily.

has a [[BrotherSisterIncest crush]] on her and always does his not-so-best effort to resist his incestuous feelings.

* Tyler Dawn from ''[[{{Webcomic/Morphe}} morphE]]''. Long ''Film/TheWoods'' with Heather, played by Agnes Bruckner.
* Henriette de Nevers is an understated but still adventurous redhead in the film version of ''Film/LaReineMargot''.
* Gimli of ''Film/LordOfTheRings'' has
red hair, hair with a hot matching beard as well as being quick-tempered. Well, the temper part is kinda obvious because he is a Dwarf. Same goes for his father Glóin in ''Film/TheHobbit''.
* Spirited Ashley in ''Junebug'' is a midler
and realistic version of this.
* Scarlet from ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra''.
* Almost any character played by Maureen O'Hara.
* Lil from the appropriately titled ''Film/RedHeadedWoman'', who is
a pathological need gold-digging seductress. If you break a date with her, she may follow you to prove himself, your house and scream at you while you are talking with your wife. If your party upstages hers, she may show up and make a scene. And if you dump her, she might pull out a gun and shoot you.
* Murph in ''Film/{{Interstellar}}'', who is as brilliant as she is mercurial. More literally when she sets Tom's crops on fire to cause a distraction and sneak back to his house.
* Maya (also played by Creator/JessicaChastain) from ''Film/ZeroDarkThirty'' is a [[TheDeterminator determined]] woman [[MarriedToTheJob with an insane obsession to search for]] UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden at all costs. Her towering male co-workers are quite impressed with her explosive nature and snarky boasts.
* Sarah Harding in ''Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark''. She is an animal enthusiast that studies predators and when she has the very chance of meeting dinosaurs she doesn't doubt for a second,
despite being surrounded by people who are better Ian's rantings and warnings.
** Claire Dearing, the Film/JurassicWorld operations manager, can be ''redder
than him in many respects.
* Richard Dark from "Webcomic/{{Xenospora}}" is one. The

she is determined to find her nephews, [[ActionDressRip ripping her clothes]] [[CombatStilettos and wearing heels in action included]].

* Main character Amaltea, in ''Webcomic/SwordPrincessAmaltea'', is temperamental, easily enraged and outspoken and has
dark red hair and freckles]]. She has GreenEyes too.
* Cynthia in ''Film/LoveFindsAndyHardy''. Cynthia is gorgeous, and apparently quite a bit sluttier than all the other girls in Carvel--Andy doesn't know how
to match her personality.deal with Cynthia's nonstop desire for "hugging and kissing." Cynthia dumps Andy like yesterday's garbage after she gets a look at TheAllegedCar he just bought.

* In ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'', the rogue Vaetris has red hair and has quite a fiery personality.
* Aptly-nicknamed Emily "Phoenix" Shifter from ''Orderly Chaos'' is a sweeter, girlier version who still packs plenty of passion into a little package.
* Fireball of the WhateleyUniverse. Red hair, short temper. Oh, and that fire manifestation power. And she's AxCrazy.

Instead, she took the Oath of Office, won the country, and that fire manifestation power. was generally a spitfire who shouldered the responsibility of the Presidency without getting drunk on power - and God help you if you stood in her way. Fiery Redhead, indeed!
* ''Series/CovingtonCross'': Eleanor Grey.
* ''Series/{{CSI}}'': Catherine Willows borderlines this, as a strawberry blonde. It's not deep red, but probably got enough red mixed with the blonde to count.
And she's AxCrazy.
** Powerful mage Fey counts too. [[BewareTheNiceOnes Do]] ''[[BewareTheNiceOnes not]]'' [[BewareTheNiceOnes piss her off]]. Plus, when
got the personality to go with it.
* ''Series/CSIMiami'': Horatio Caine, sometimes. You definitely don't want to get on his bad side. He'll hunt you across however many countries
it comes takes, as the Mala Noches could attest. He didn't exactly seem to fire, no one else has what she has.
have trouble getting women, either, though they kept getting killed for some reason.
* The Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse had Heatwave, a fire-wielding mutant SuperHero. When she turns ''Series/DaysOfOurLives'': Melanie Jonas (formerly Melanie Layton Kiriakis). Despite being downright saccharine at times, if you get on her powers, bad side, she'll ''really'' let you have it. Also, since she's about to gain her sixth love interest in less than three years, she definitely qualifies as an example of HeroesWantRedheads. Her ParentalSubstitute Maggie also fits this trope.
* ''Series/{{Defiance}}'': Irisa Nyira, played by Music/StephanieLeonidas (who is not red-headed in {{Real Life}}). This leading to this comment IMDB: "Is it wrong of me to find her more attractive as an alien than the actor behind it?" and the reply, "Proof that redheads are just better?". Irisa is possibly also an example of the "Big Eyes" part of trope {{Big Eyes Little Eyes}}.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** Donna Noble, who was probably the loudest companion yet (but that's not necessarily a bad thing). One character refers to her as being "all
red hair [[FlamingHair becomes fiery and fire".
** Or the just-as-loud Melanie Bush.
** Dr. Grace Holloway. HeroesWantRedheads, evidently, if only to go on adventures with and maybe kiss a little.
** As well as Amy Pond. Not quite as loud, but just as fiery. Actually {{lampshade| hanging}}d
in the most literal sense show itself, with the line, "Loves a redhead, our Doctor!"
* ''Series/EastEnders'': Bianca Jackson.
* ''The Edge of Night'': Raven Whitney.
* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'': Jool and Sikozu.
* ''Series/FirstWave'': Jordan Radcliffe.
* ''Series/FraggleRock'': Red, with her extreme tomboy nature, her...very high self-esteem, and her dominant personality (which itself causes numerous conflicts), plus her own explicitly stated desires ("The Tale
of the word]].
Triumphant Princess" anyone?).
* ''Series/{{Glee}}'': InvertedTrope: the only redheaded character is the super sweet Emma. Every other female character (except Brittany and Tina) is extremely fiery.
* ''Series/GreysAnatomy'' and ''PrivatePractice'': Addison Montgomery - former Montgomery-Shepherd. She's also pretty successful with men (Derek, Mark, Alex, Kevin, Noah), so she's also an example of HeroesWantRedheads.
* ''Series/HouseOfAnubis'': Patricia. She even scares the boys when she gets mad...which happens quite often. Her hair gets darker as the show goes on, though.
* ''Series/ILoveLucy'': Lucy Ricardo -- 60% screwball, 40% spitfire.
* ''TheInspectorLynleyMysteries'': Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, with the accompanying [[{{Tsundere}} temper]] and GreenEyes.
* ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'': When Assistant District Attorney Casey Novak isn't on the scene with guns blazing and taking a hands-on approach to the cases, she is in softball batting practice or bicycling to work.
* ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'': Jennsen Rahl.
* ''Series/{{Lost}}'': Charlotte.
* ''Series/MadMen'': Joan.
* ''Series/MagnificentCentury'': Aleksandra/Hürrem. Almost the first thing she does in the series is to grab a breadknife and attack the slavers who are holding her and her countrywomen captive.
* ''Series/MelrosePlace'': ''All'' of the redheaded women on Melrose Place (at least eventually in [[CharacterizationMarchesOn Kimberly Shaw's case]]), but most noticably Sydney Andrews, the troublemaking, prostitute/stripper younger sister of Jane Mancini.
** And this was not just reserved for women; there was also Dr. Bret "Coop" Cooper, as well.
* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'': Queen Annis.
* ''MySoCalledLife'': Central character Angela Chase evokes this trope by dying her hair "crimson glow". Former best friend Sharon Cherski is a ''lot'' calmer and more manageable than Angela, but she still easily fits the trope. Same goes with Hallie Lowenthal, the series' resident adult FieryRedhead.
* ''Series/{{Picket Fences}}'': As seemingly the sole female cop in the boy's club that is the Rome Sheriff's Department, Deputy Maxine 'Max' Stewart definitely fits the prototype of the fiery redhead. She's determined, passionate , ambitious, outspoken at times and quick to anger.
* ''Series/RescueSpecialOps'': Heidi.
There are quite a lot few examples of redheads in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'', this but one that stands out is when the Cops and a fair portion Firies trick Chase out of RSO's equipment after he is put on light duties, Heidi uses her cleverness to trick both into giving the equipment back [[spoiler:by giving them fit. Examples include [[AntiHero Adam Dodd]], [[SmallNameBigEgo Jimmy Brennan]], [[KnightInSourArmor Aileen Borden]], [[ActionGirl Bridget Connolly]], and [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain Rob Jenkins]].

* Pat ''Series/{{Revolution}}'': Emma in the episode "[[Recap/RevolutionS1E15Home Home]]". She wasn't a combatant like most other characters, but she didn't hesitate to get in Big Bad Monroe's face and call him out on his actions. She also attempted to make an honest appeal to his better nature. It didn't work, but he did admit that he wants to be the person she remembers so badly. She was his girlfriend at one time, so it gave them a special connection. [[spoiler: Then, when he tried using her as a hostage, she didn't panic. In fact, she ended revealing that she gave birth to his son at some point in time and sent him away. Before she can tell him where, she got shot and killed. She had a major impact on Monroe from ''WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay''

* Faun ''{{Series/Salem}}'': Anne Hale, one of the few people to speak out against the witch hunt.
* ''{{Series/Selfie}}'' has a downplayed example in main character Eliza (played by Karen Gillan). While not exactly fiery, she is rather emotional, impulsive,
and Naole in ''{{Tasakeru}}''.
flighty.
* Deirdre Rees ''Series/TheSentinel'': We have Naomi Sandburg, who seems like a peace-loving ex-flowerchild, until you threaten her son; Jim's ex-wife Carolyn; and Megan Connor, the Antipodean Amazon.
* ''Series/SleepyHollow'' has Ichabod Crane's wife Katrina. Abbie put it best after Ichabod despairs that he should have stopped Katrina
from [[http://gaius0artemis.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4lwgxe Night Hunters]]. Timid, but has potential.
[[spoiler: staying with the Headless Horseman to spy on Moloch's plans.]]
-->'''Abbie''': She's a grown woman, a witch, and a redhead. You couldn't have stopped her if you tried.
* Creator/AllisonPregler aka Lupa from WebSite/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, whose GenkiGirl ''Series/{{Smallville}}'': Tess Mercer. You do NOT want to get in her way or get her angry.
* ''{{Series/Spellbinder}}'': Ashka, the callous, mean, chronically double-crossing and power-hungry bitch.
* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': Major Kira Nerys. Former Bajoran resistance fighter, current second-in-command of ''Deep Space Nine'', and with an always fiery personality. She once beat the shit out of a ''serial killer'' while the equivalent of ''nine months pregnant''. The
personality dips into [[PsychopathicWomanchild deranged]] territory type is implied by Chief O'Brien in crossovers. She's since the pilot to be a trait common in Bajoran women (probably referring back to Ro Laren, whose role the character of Kira was created to replace).
* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': Dr. Beverly Crusher - do not piss her off or you will find yourself
dropped by Klingon martial arts faster than you can say 'hypospray'.
* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'': Captain Janeway, though, as she's TheCaptain, she doesn't have to lose her temper, just give them
the costumes [[DeathGlare Glare of Death]]. Strong, very expressive, and funny voices since leaving TGWTG.touchy in her body language even though she's a CelibateHero, and quickly gets {{Badass}} on anyone who threatens her ship or crew.
* ''Series/{{Suits}}'': Donna Paulsen.
* ''Series/TeenWolf'' has the feisty, ambitious Lydia Martin.

* Lizzie Bennet ''Series/WhatILikeAboutYou'': Tina.
* ''Series/WillAndGrace'': Grace Adler sometimes qualifies.
* Wrestling/{{WWE}}: Amy Dumas (Lita) was a pretty decent personification
of TheLizzieBennetDiaries, especially when she gets worked up over the interpersonal drama dominating over her life.
* Rya from Bonus Stage.
* Lyphia from ''Literature/MageLife'' leaves the protagonist tongue-tied the first time he sees her,
this, being flashy, outgoing, and later rebukes him when he interrupts her mid-speech.
* Josh Hadley, co-host of ''WebOriginal/{{Radiodrome}}'', ''Lost
pretty willing to jump in the Static'', and, most appropriately, ''What middle of anyone who crossed her, male or female.
* ''Series/TheXFiles'': Dr. Dana Scully is a deliberate InvertedTrope. She is a redhead, but, between her and Mulder, she is
the Fuck?!?''. Best described as [[AgentScully analytical and restrained partner]], while the [[Franchise/GreenLantern Guy Gardner]] of internet radio.
* When [[WebVideo/{{yourchonny}} Chonny]]
TallDarkAndSnarky Mulder is acting as his ill-tempered mother for his videos, he dons a short, scraggly red wig.
* Main character Austin of ''Literature/{{Antlers Colorado}}'' is generally stoic, but has been shown to have
the [[AgentMulder passionate believer]]. It's also quite a proclivity for fighting when provoked. WordOfGod says rare that he only dyes his hair red, though.we see Scully really angry, and it usually takes something [[NotSoStoic pretty extreme]] to piss her off. [[BerserkButton Hurting Mulder in any way]] is a ''very'' bad idea, though.
* ''TheYoungOnes'': Vyvyan (who's a guy, by the way), the resident [[TheQuincyPunk punk]], actually breaks the bonds of fiery and crosses over into ''volcanic''.


Added DiffLines:

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'' gives us an excellent example in the [[PluckyGirl determined]], [[HotBlooded passionate]] and [[GenkiGirl energetic]] Lynne.
* Midna from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''.
** [[BigBad Ganondorf]] even more so, especially in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]''.
* Ladies and gentlemen: SelfDemonstrating/{{Bowser}}, [[BigBad King of the Koopas]] from Franchise/SuperMarioBros.
** He is even able to breathe fire.
** Princess Daisy of ''Super Mario Land''. Friend and unconfirmed cousin of Princess Peach, the redhead Daisy was stated as a tomboy in ''Mario Tennis'', her first modern appearance, and is known for her energetic, loud, and competitive character traits.
* Nariko from ''VideoGame/HeavenlySword''. There has perhaps never been so much red coming out of one head.
** Excepting, perhaps, cases of [[YourHeadAsplode massive cranial trauma]].
* Claus and Kumatora from ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}''.
* Atlas from ''VideoGame/MegaManZX Advent'' uses fire attacks when merged with Model F. ''[[ViewerGenderConfusion She]]'' doesn't mess around.
** Before that was ''VideoGame/MegaMan1's'' Fire Man, who was a [[IncrediblyLamePun red fieryhead]]. His ''MegaManPoweredUp'' depiction is HotBlooded to the point of sounding like [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Yosemite Sam]].
* The chestnut-haired AxCrazy Aran Ryan from the VideoGame/PunchOut series.
** Also the auburn-haired, militant steel machine, Von Kaiser.
* Excepting the game versions and art which depicted her as a blonde or brunette, Tyris Flare of the ''GoldenAxe'' series. A fiery redhead in that she was able to summon explosions and dragons with her magic.
* Tasha/Zadia from ''VideoGame/AdvanceWars: Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict''.
* Aika from ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia''. She seems to be aligned with the Red Moon, which embodies heat, as well.
* What ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'s'' Adell lacks in gender, he makes up in ridiculous levels of fieriness - both [[HotBlooded figuratively]] and [[PlayingWithFire literally]].
* Mars Adepts in ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' typically partner this trope with [[HotBlooded Hot Blood]] and PersonalityPowers, making them good cases of ColorCodedForYourConvenience. Red hair = [[PlayingWithFire fire!]] As of ''GoldenSunDarkDawn'', we have:
** Garet (hair is more brown in his character art, but red on his sprite and he fits the personality)
*** Garet's siblings both demonstrate this trope; his parents, less so.
** Jenna (hair is [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair maroon]], but the personality fits).
** Akafubu of Kibombo (subverting MagicalNegro in the process).
** Karst (surprisingly, the only Fire Clan member to follow this trope).
** Tyrell (considering Garet's his father).
** Eoleo the Champa (debuted in ''Golden Sun: The Lost Age'', but grew into the personality for ''Dark Dawn'').
* ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' features the sharp-tongued, passionate, brash tiefling thief Annah-Of-The-Shadows.
* Of all the Redheads in ''TheWitcher'', Princess Adda is the one who could be called fiery. [[MagicWarrior Triss]] has her moments but is more often the tactician in combat or politics, as does [[TheMedic Shanni]], but she is more often [[TheChick motherly]].
* Subverted in ''[[FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]''. Eliwood is a redhead, but he's very level-headed and somewhat of a TechnicalPacifist. The HotBlooded one among the lords is LightningBruiser Hector, who happens to have...''blue'' hair. Also subverted with Kent, who's an OfficerAndAGentleman and TheLancer to Lyn.
** Averted in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemSacredStones'' by the [[PhenotypeStereotype typically]] red-haired Jehannans, who are usually very friendly. Most notable example being [[NiceHat Joshua]], who is known for being a gambling addict, not hot-tempered.
** Seth from the same game is also very level-headed and [[KnightInShiningArmor noble.]]
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' gives us Sully, the redheaded ActionGirl from Chrom's Shepherds group. Can be potentially played straight by either Owain, Cynthia, or [[{{Tsundere}} Severa]] [[spoiler: from the KidFromTheFuture team]] too, but only if [[spoiler: either of them is fathered by a redheaded man; i.e, Gaius or a redhaired male Avatar.]] Averted by [[BadassBookworm Miriel or Laurent]], however.
* [[ActionGirl Monica]] [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Raybrandt]] in ''VideoGame/DarkCloud 2''. Even though the game's point of view is centered on Max, she's the leader in the team and has a...unique sense of humor, especially where Firbits are concerned.
* Kimmy Eckman from ''BackyardSports''.
* Steve Burnside from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica''.
* That Fighter sprite from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' caused nothing but trouble.
** [[Webcomic/EightBitTheater I hear that]] [[WelcomeToCorneria he likes swords]].
** Averted by the White Mage.
** Subverted in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' with [[DarkSkinnedRedhead Wakka]], who is probably the most laid back character in the game. He has his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txGwkowqqJg angry]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpsFe81I6bw moments]], though.
* House Harkonnen from the ''Dune'' games. While this trope may not be entirely noticeable in ''VideoGame/DuneII'' and ''Dune 2000'', this is very prevalent in ''VideoGame/EmperorBattleForDune''. Several of the Harkonnen people notably have red hair (including Baron Rakan, Copec, and plenty of the house's infantry) and this very house is known to be cruel even to their own. The Baron does not hesitate one bit to scold a field general who failed a mission, giving a warning like "if this inept performance continues, I'll have you skinned alive!" Indeed, when you view the first FMV cutscene for this house, you hear the previous general cry out in agony, getting tortured by a slow and excruciatingly painful death because he failed his superior leaders. In the cutscenes, Copec and Rakan have short tempers. In the first cutscene when Gunseng attempts to help his ailing father, Rakan pushes Gunseng away with a hint of anger and tells him to go away. The whole House of the Harkonnen is corrupt and only consider their own desires, hence the artificial alterations to most of Geidi Prime; hardly anything can grow there by itself and new things require the expense of older substances to develop.
* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': The Normandy crew has two redhead [=NPCs=]. One is the ThePollyanna, but the other is a hotheaded BraveScot who fits even if he's an engineer rather than a fighter.
** PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard can be one depending on player choices, especially now that the default female Shepard in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' is a SignificantGreenEyedRedhead.
* Inverted in ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'', in which (by hair color) Aribeth is the closest thing to a redhead among all of the [=NPCs=] but is also the most rational and collected of the entire cast (until the [[MindRape dreams]] begin).
* At first glance, this trope is averted in ''Dragon Age: Origins'', where pious "good girl" Leliana is a redhead and "bad girl" Morrigan is a brunette. But Morrigan is a frosty kind of dark - sexual but not emotional; whereas Leliana is a former seductress-assassin and potentially an affectionate romance option for the player's character (whether male or female).
** If Leliana becomes "hardened" due to her personal quest, she plays this trope perfectly straight from then on.
** Aveline from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' also seems to be one, and various redheaded [=NPCs=] play it straight, subvert it, etc.
* Lilith from ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' has ElementalPowers in a game otherwise mostly devoid of sorcery.
* Natalie from ''VideoGame/ApeEscape''.
* [[PlayingWithFire Axel]] from KingdomHearts.
* The titular heroine of ''[[AtelierSeries Atelier Liese]]''. [[spoiler:She is slightly tamer by the time she reappears in ''VideoGame/{{Atelier Annie|Alchemists of Sera Island}}'', but still.]]
* [[TraumaCenter Trauma Team]] features Maria Torres, who is in first response. She seems [[DarkSkinnedRedhead pretty tanned, too]].
* As stated above, Misty from ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue''. [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Flannery]] (who's a [[PlayingWithFire Fire-type]] Gym Leader) and [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Gardenia]] fit to a point, too.
** Maxie from ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' is an interesting subversion- despite being an EvilRedhead who likes PlayingWithFire, he doesn't have the personality!
** Mars from ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'', one of the Team Galactic admins who of all things has a short temper.
** Chili from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', Unova's resident Fire-type Gym Leader.
** Silver, the rival of the ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver''
** Pokémon example: Darmanitan, the absolutely ''berserk''-looking daruma doll gorilla, is covered in red fur. A literal example too, as it's a [[PlayingWithFire Fire]]-type. The series has a few other examples like this.
** From the NobunagasAmbition crossover, VideoGame/PokemonConquest gives us Kai, who has ''literal'' fiery red hair. Not in the FlamingHair sense; this woman's hair ''shapes'' like flames when she gets angry, and looks like an explosion when she get's shocked. Fittingly, her Perfect Link is Darmanitan, listed directly above.
** From the Pokémon ranger sideseries, we have Lavanna.
* [[BlackMagicianGirl Jessica]] from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'' is a classic [[{{Tsundere}} Tsunde-redhead]] with the [[GirlishPigtails pigtails to match]]. She's also the games' [[FetishFuelStationAttendant richest]] [[{{Stripperific}} source]] of Grade-A [[MsFanservice fanservice]].
** Ashlynn from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'' is an earlier example of a FieryRedhead in the series and, like Jessica from ''VIII'', [[BlackMagicianGirl specializes in offensive magic]] and thus is also fiery.
** And Alena from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIV'', who (despite the pointy hat) isn't even a magic user, but instead a princess who would sooner punch her problems away than act like the stereotypical princess her father wants her to be.
* Tsubaki of ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' is a rare example of this trope being DoubleSubverted. She's a redhead, but for all of the first game (where she was an NPC) she was a studious, level-headed, rather pleasant ProperLady. Where the double subversion kicks in is when she is introduced as a playable character with her own story in the second game: she's actually a ClingyJealousGirl to her love-interest Jin. [[spoiler:It goes so far that not only does she become a vengeful, screaming maniac whenever someone gets too close to him, she actually tries to murder her friend Noel after BigBad Hazama convinces her that Noel stole away her chance to be with him, and she performs a FaceHeelTurn]].
* [[BlackMagicianGirl Aurora]] from ''VideoGame/BlackSigil'', [[PlayingWithFire with powers to match]]. So. Many. {{Fireballs}}.
* Asch from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' is rude, crude and liable to shout at everyone [[spoiler: Except Natalia.]] [[spoiler: He has his reasons, such as a clone replacing him and his family leaving him for dead because of it.]]
* Joanna Dark from ''VideoGame/PerfectDark'' and its prequel ''VideoGame/PerfectDarkZero''. Although, in the first game, her hair looks more brown than red, her personality is still ''FieryRedhead''.
* Subverted with Khalid in ''BaldursGate'', who is anything but fiery.
** Nalia in the sequel is a straightforward example, however.
* Cass in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' is a [[TheAlcoholic hard drinkin']], [[ClusterFBomb foul-mouthed]] spitfire of a woman who also happens to be mighty handy with a shotgun.
* ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' presents to us Zorne Sepperin, who's a short-tempered, impulsive, and moody little girl with love affections towards Graf Michael Sepperin (whom she regards as her father despite the absence of blood ties) and a knack for creating and throwing bombs [[{{Expy}} a la Bomberman]].
* Brooks in ''The Orion'' Conspiracy plays this trope straight to a T. She can cuss, she can fight, she can have sex, she can do a lot.
* ''HarvestMoon'' has various FieryRedHead's, though the most famous are the two Ann's.
* ''VideoGame/InThe1stDegree'' presents Ruby Garcia. She is a redhead (CaptainObvious), her first name refers to red, and she has the attitude. She is the girlfriend of the defendent James Tobin, and she wants to believe that he's not a murderer. In fact, asking the wrong questions (especially questions that make Tobin sound like a murderer) will get you an explosive outburst from her.
* [[MeaningfulName Ursula Unquenchablefire]], the Amazon leader in ''VideoGame/TheSpellcastingSeries''. [[InformedAbility Apparently quite the warrior and leader]], but not real big on foreplay.
* Liza, from ''Kaiser Knuckle''.
* From VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}, RED, Falcom, and Cave, though the latter is a subversion since her personality is cool as ice.
* The eponymous VideoGame/BattleGirl.
* VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe. A lot of his attacks are even fire related.
* Nadine from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'''s ''Point Lookout'' expansion pack.
* Mama from ''VideoGame/{{Cooking Mama}}'', despite looking like she's an innocent woman that loves to cook and not [[FireballEyeballs spoil her food]].
* Averted in ''StarCraft''. Sarah Kerrigan, with blood-red hair, has a [[IceQueen cool, calculating, and professional]] personality.
* Doug from ''VideoGame/RuneFactory4'' is a hot-tempered, red-headed dwarf. [[spoiler:But he's also capable of being cool and calculating, as his plot to get revenge on Ventuswill shows.]]
* The red-headed Gladiator from ''VideoGame/{{Sacred}}'' is the BigGuy among playable characters and a specialized mêlée fighter. According to the lines he occasionally shoots when fighting, he is also [[BloodKnight very enthousiastic to fight and kill]].
* In what could be another double subversion, ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' gives us Miss Fortune. She's red-headed and passionate... but falls more into the territory of cool-headed, teasing and seductive FemmeFatale MsFanservice, yet still has a competitive edge. That is, until she's told to use her ultimate skill, Bullet Time, in which she goes very fiery and let out a great laugh as she pelts you with bullets.
* Punk Giana from ''VideoGame/TheGreatGianaSisters'' and its modern counterparts.
* In the seventh installment of the ''VideoGame/DarkParables'', the Fairy Tale Detective meets Literature/{{Rapunzel}}'s betrothed, Prince Ross. He's a red-haired, red-eyed {{Hunk}} who wields both a FlamingSword and ElementalPowers of fire, and he's rather intense and comes across as more than a little angry. He's an extremely good person, however, and he loves Rapunzel devotedly.
* Captain Lorimette, in ''VideoGame/QueenAtArms'', is a regal and dignified LadyOfWar - but she's also very much this when her buttons are pressed.
* [[BigGood Mii Koryuji]] from ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' gets riled up by pretty much everyone. [[ActionGirl She also kicks lots of ass]] and is a [[TheCheerleader Cheerleader]] straight out of high school with GreenEyes.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/{{MAG ISA}}'' -- (subversion) [[http://mag-isa.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/119746 Claudita]] is a red-head but violence is always her last resort.
* Oasis from ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. She tends to alternate between extreme giddiness (usually when Torg acts nice to her) and extreme [[{{Yandere}} jealousy and rage]] (usually when something comes between her and Torg). {{Justified|Trope}} since these emotions were programmed into her by Dr. Steve. In addition, she's frequently accompanied by fire-related motifs such as ThePhoenix. It turns out that [[spoiler:"fiery" is literal; she's [[PlayingWithFire pyrokinetic]].]]
* Kestrel from ''Webcomic/QueenOfWands''.
* White Mage from ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater''.
* Catalina from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''. Her catchphrase is [[NoIndoorVoice "JACKASSES!"]], and when angered, she's loud enough to make [[DistantReactionShot aliens in outer space pause and ask "What was that noise?"]]
** Nanase. Just Nanase.
* Wildy San from ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures''.
* Georgia's best friend Rita in ''Webcomic/FineSometimesRain'' is a fiery redhead who is always ready to defend her friends.
* Princess Voluptua from ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob''.
* Surma from ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''. Her daughter, Antimony, also has some of this personality, but it's almost completely tempered by [[EmotionlessGirl her stoicism]]. Annie has an associated fire motif, since she has a talent for etherically manipulating fire with [[AmplifierArtifact the blinker stone]]. And it's eventually revealed [[spoiler:Surma and Annie are both descended from a fire elemental.]]
-->'''Reynardine:''' (To Antimony) Haha! Well, you may have everyone fooled with your stoic facade, but not me! You have a fire in you, child, a fire that belonged to your mother!
* Samantha from ''Webcomic/MoltenBlade'', both a [[PlayingWithFire fiery]] redhead and the intended meaning.
* Monica Villareal from ''Webcomic/WapsiSquare'', although in comparison to [[BadassNormal her friend Shelly]] or the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot golem girls]], she doesn't particularly stick out in terms of fieryness.
* Ratheel of ''Webcomic/{{Juathuur}}'' is a male example.
* Sixx from ''Webcomic/{{Collar 6}}''.
* [[http://www.thebeastlegion.com/issue-07-page-9-her-power/ Fyre]] from the ''Webcomic/TheBeastLegion'' fit's the trope perfectly. Not only does she have read hair but is a fire bending master.
* Trawn from ''Webcomic/ElectricWonderland'', the red-headed editor-in-chief of the ''Nettropolis Free Press'', expresses strong passions for news reporting and keeping her friends/employees safe, although she also has a bit of a temper sometimes.
* Miriam from ''Webcomic/OutThere''.
* Scarlet 'Red' Macrumble from ''Webcomic/GirlsInSpace''.
* Tailii from [[http://comicshortsonline.thecomicseries.com/ Comic Shorts]].
* Haley Starshine from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''. [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch "Sneak attack- BITCH!"]]
** Haley is a bit of a subversion: she suffers from considerable self-loathing and feels it necessary to hide her true feelings much of the time, believing people wouldn't like her if they really knew her.
* Bob in ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge''.
* Dave from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', sort of - he was frequently assumed to be by the fanbase (possibly even given a nod on one of Hussie's Formsprings), but after the reveal that [[spoiler: he and Rose are siblings]], the fanbase eventually agreed on blonde. Hussie's current stance on the issue is that Dave's hair color is whatever you want it to be, so he can still be a Fiery Redhead if you want.
* Alexander Hamilton from ''Webcomic/TheDreamer''.
* The eponymous main character of ''Webcomic/SarahZero'' is an example of this. Sarah is headstrong, loud, and the guitarist in a rock band.
* Layla from ''Webcomic/FarOutThere'' [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1027704/page-57-clothes-in-the-future-must-stay-really-clean/ most]] [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1071313/page-240-blow-up/ definitely]] [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1145154/page-332-calm-down-before-you-hurt-yourself/ qualifies]].
* Freija from ''Webcomic/TheSenkari'' is [[http://www.the-senkari.com/2010/12/22/12222010/ implied]] to be this.
* Anja Baker from ''Webcomic/RegularGuy''. Though she mostly keeps it on a low simmer, she is also the character least likely to put up with BS.
* Benny of ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' is a hot, redheaded [[CuteMonsterGirl troll]] with a very short temper. She happily beats the living daylights out of anyone that irritates her...and she's a ''priestess''.
* Dana, [[WholesomeCrossdresser "Cookie's Elle-Boy Rival"]] in the ''Webcomic/JetDream'' "It's Cookie!" spinoff [[RemixComic Remix Comics]]. He's modeled on Chili Storm from ''ComicBook/MillieTheModel''.
* Scar from ''Webcomic/{{Cordless}}'', to a T.
* SKO and TKO from ''Webcomic/ElfBlood'' are normally generally quite calm and reserved, even kindly. Get them in the same room together and watch their tempers flare.
* Marron, the eggroll/bondage emporium waitress turned artist, from ''Webcomic/VoodooWalrus'' is an example of this as her introduction involves threatening a co-worker with an iron maiden and then smashing a phone book into the skull of one of the main characters when he gets a little too blatant with his flirtations.
** Mac could be seen as another example of this, but it's been over a year since she was last depicted with her natural red hair color.
* Mal from ''Webcomic/HeadTrip''. She ''can'' be calm, rational, and logical, but she is definitely a Heroic Sociopath and a ''lot'' more fun when she's being violent to the stupid people.
* Ash and (to a lesser extent) Missi from ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}.''
* Red in ''Webcomic/RedsPlanet.'' A particular BerserkButton is being called Red.
* Melissa Thayer, a fox scientist from ''Webcomic/{{Outworld}}''. She's nice most of the time, but she has her moments.
* Nin Wah the red panda from ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'', who sports a fiery FurryFemaleMane and will [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2010/01/31/bad-choice-of-words/ destroy you]] if you press her BerserkButton.
* The titular character of ''Webcomic/{{Nimona}}'' ''definitely'' qualifies, despite being a sidekick to NobleDemon Ballister Blackheart, she's certainly more bloodthirsty and energetic than her superior. Being a shapeshifter, her red hair doubles as her MorphicResonance, giving her forms an overall red tone.
* Guy from ''Webcomic/TwoGuysAndGuy''. She once said only considers Wayne her friend because she ''only'' dislikes him mildly. She had to take happy pills for her anger issues. And she said she hoped Wayne was dead for using the word "literally" wrong among other things.
* Cinna Grossul from ''Webcomic/{{Pacificators}}.'' She [[LadySwearsALot swears like a sailor,]] and ''always'' [[FlippingTheBird flips off]] her arch-nemesis/teammate [[ProperLady Muneca Powell]]. To top it off, she has PlayingWithFire powers… and if she's not careful, she'll become a ''literal'' [[BurningWithAnger fiery]] [[IncrediblyLamePun redhead]].
* ''[[http://www.absolutehotsister.com/ Absolute Hot Sister]]'' has Ellen, the {{Deuteragonist}}. She's the young sister of the {{Protagonist}} Kevin who not-so-secretly has a [[BrotherSisterIncest crush]] on her and always does his not-so-best effort to resist his incestuous feelings.
* Tyler Dawn from ''[[{{Webcomic/Morphe}} morphE]]''. Long red hair, a hot temper and a pathological need to prove himself, despite being surrounded by people who are better than him in many respects.
* Richard Dark from "Webcomic/{{Xenospora}}" is one. The first time we see him is when he's yelling at his colleague.
* Breaker from ''Webcomic/{{Break}}'' is a gal with lovely crimson locks...who will not hesitate to pound you into the ground with [[KiAttacks Ki-Powered]] [[ActionGirl martial arts]] if you get on her nerves
* Main character Amaltea, in ''Webcomic/SwordPrincessAmaltea'', is temperamental, easily enraged and outspoken and has red hair to match her personality.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* In ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'', the rogue Vaetris has red hair and has quite a fiery personality.
* Aptly-nicknamed Emily "Phoenix" Shifter from ''Orderly Chaos'' is a sweeter, girlier version who still packs plenty of passion into a little package.
* Fireball of the WhateleyUniverse. Red hair, short temper. Oh, and that fire manifestation power. And she's AxCrazy.
** Powerful mage Fey counts too. [[BewareTheNiceOnes Do]] ''[[BewareTheNiceOnes not]]'' [[BewareTheNiceOnes piss her off]]. Plus, when it comes to fire, no one else has what she has.
* The Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse had Heatwave, a fire-wielding mutant SuperHero. When she turns on her powers, her red hair [[FlamingHair becomes fiery in the most literal sense of the word]].
* There are quite a lot of redheads in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'', and a fair portion of them fit. Examples include [[AntiHero Adam Dodd]], [[SmallNameBigEgo Jimmy Brennan]], [[KnightInSourArmor Aileen Borden]], [[ActionGirl Bridget Connolly]], and [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain Rob Jenkins]].
* Fanart for ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' always has Tex with red hair. With her black armor, that's [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver the only logical choice]].
** Also, [[spoiler:Agent Carolina of Project Freelancer.]]
* Pat from ''WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay''
* Faun and Naole in ''{{Tasakeru}}''.
* Deirdre Rees from [[http://gaius0artemis.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4lwgxe Night Hunters]]. Timid, but has potential.
* Creator/AllisonPregler aka Lupa from WebSite/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, whose GenkiGirl personality dips into [[PsychopathicWomanchild deranged]] territory in crossovers. She's since dropped the costumes and funny voices since leaving TGWTG.
* Lizzie Bennet of TheLizzieBennetDiaries, especially when she gets worked up over the interpersonal drama dominating over her life.
* Rya from Bonus Stage.
* Lyphia from ''Literature/MageLife'' leaves the protagonist tongue-tied the first time he sees her, and later rebukes him when he interrupts her mid-speech.
* Josh Hadley, co-host of ''WebOriginal/{{Radiodrome}}'', ''Lost in the Static'', and, most appropriately, ''What the Fuck?!?''. Best described as the [[Franchise/GreenLantern Guy Gardner]] of internet radio.
* When [[WebVideo/{{yourchonny}} Chonny]] is acting as his ill-tempered mother for his videos, he dons a short, scraggly red wig.
* Main character Austin of ''Literature/{{Antlers Colorado}}'' is generally stoic, but has been shown to have quite a proclivity for fighting when provoked. WordOfGod says that he only dyes his hair red, though.

* FieryRedhead/WebOriginal


Added DiffLines:

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'' gives us an excellent example in the [[PluckyGirl determined]], [[HotBlooded passionate]] and [[GenkiGirl energetic]] Lynne.
* Midna from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''.
** [[BigBad Ganondorf]] even more so, especially in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]''.
* Ladies and gentlemen: SelfDemonstrating/{{Bowser}}, [[BigBad King of the Koopas]] from Franchise/SuperMarioBros.
** He is even able to breathe fire.
** Princess Daisy of ''Super Mario Land''. Friend and unconfirmed cousin of Princess Peach, the redhead Daisy was stated as a tomboy in ''Mario Tennis'', her first modern appearance, and is known for her energetic, loud, and competitive character traits.
* Nariko from ''VideoGame/HeavenlySword''. There has perhaps never been so much red coming out of one head.
** Excepting, perhaps, cases of [[YourHeadAsplode massive cranial trauma]].
* Claus and Kumatora from ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}''.
* Atlas from ''VideoGame/MegaManZX Advent'' uses fire attacks when merged with Model F. ''[[ViewerGenderConfusion She]]'' doesn't mess around.
** Before that was ''VideoGame/MegaMan1's'' Fire Man, who was a [[IncrediblyLamePun red fieryhead]]. His ''MegaManPoweredUp'' depiction is HotBlooded to the point of sounding like [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Yosemite Sam]].
* The chestnut-haired AxCrazy Aran Ryan from the VideoGame/PunchOut series.
** Also the auburn-haired, militant steel machine, Von Kaiser.
* Excepting the game versions and art which depicted her as a blonde or brunette, Tyris Flare of the ''GoldenAxe'' series. A fiery redhead in that she was able to summon explosions and dragons with her magic.
* Tasha/Zadia from ''VideoGame/AdvanceWars: Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict''.
* Aika from ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia''. She seems to be aligned with the Red Moon, which embodies heat, as well.
* What ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'s'' Adell lacks in gender, he makes up in ridiculous levels of fieriness - both [[HotBlooded figuratively]] and [[PlayingWithFire literally]].
* Mars Adepts in ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' typically partner this trope with [[HotBlooded Hot Blood]] and PersonalityPowers, making them good cases of ColorCodedForYourConvenience. Red hair = [[PlayingWithFire fire!]] As of ''GoldenSunDarkDawn'', we have:
** Garet (hair is more brown in his character art, but red on his sprite and he fits the personality)
*** Garet's siblings both demonstrate this trope; his parents, less so.
** Jenna (hair is [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair maroon]], but the personality fits).
** Akafubu of Kibombo (subverting MagicalNegro in the process).
** Karst (surprisingly, the only Fire Clan member to follow this trope).
** Tyrell (considering Garet's his father).
** Eoleo the Champa (debuted in ''Golden Sun: The Lost Age'', but grew into the personality for ''Dark Dawn'').
* ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' features the sharp-tongued, passionate, brash tiefling thief Annah-Of-The-Shadows.
* Of all the Redheads in ''TheWitcher'', Princess Adda is the one who could be called fiery. [[MagicWarrior Triss]] has her moments but is more often the tactician in combat or politics, as does [[TheMedic Shanni]], but she is more often [[TheChick motherly]].
* Subverted in ''[[FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]''. Eliwood is a redhead, but he's very level-headed and somewhat of a TechnicalPacifist. The HotBlooded one among the lords is LightningBruiser Hector, who happens to have...''blue'' hair. Also subverted with Kent, who's an OfficerAndAGentleman and TheLancer to Lyn.
** Averted in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemSacredStones'' by the [[PhenotypeStereotype typically]] red-haired Jehannans, who are usually very friendly. Most notable example being [[NiceHat Joshua]], who is known for being a gambling addict, not hot-tempered.
** Seth from the same game is also very level-headed and [[KnightInShiningArmor noble.]]
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' gives us Sully, the redheaded ActionGirl from Chrom's Shepherds group. Can be potentially played straight by either Owain, Cynthia, or [[{{Tsundere}} Severa]] [[spoiler: from the KidFromTheFuture team]] too, but only if [[spoiler: either of them is fathered by a redheaded man; i.e, Gaius or a redhaired male Avatar.]] Averted by [[BadassBookworm Miriel or Laurent]], however.
* [[ActionGirl Monica]] [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Raybrandt]] in ''VideoGame/DarkCloud 2''. Even though the game's point of view is centered on Max, she's the leader in the team and has a...unique sense of humor, especially where Firbits are concerned.
* Kimmy Eckman from ''BackyardSports''.
* Steve Burnside from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica''.
* That Fighter sprite from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' caused nothing but trouble.
** [[Webcomic/EightBitTheater I hear that]] [[WelcomeToCorneria he likes swords]].
** Averted by the White Mage.
** Subverted in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' with [[DarkSkinnedRedhead Wakka]], who is probably the most laid back character in the game. He has his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txGwkowqqJg angry]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpsFe81I6bw moments]], though.
* House Harkonnen from the ''Dune'' games. While this trope may not be entirely noticeable in ''VideoGame/DuneII'' and ''Dune 2000'', this is very prevalent in ''VideoGame/EmperorBattleForDune''. Several of the Harkonnen people notably have red hair (including Baron Rakan, Copec, and plenty of the house's infantry) and this very house is known to be cruel even to their own. The Baron does not hesitate one bit to scold a field general who failed a mission, giving a warning like "if this inept performance continues, I'll have you skinned alive!" Indeed, when you view the first FMV cutscene for this house, you hear the previous general cry out in agony, getting tortured by a slow and excruciatingly painful death because he failed his superior leaders. In the cutscenes, Copec and Rakan have short tempers. In the first cutscene when Gunseng attempts to help his ailing father, Rakan pushes Gunseng away with a hint of anger and tells him to go away. The whole House of the Harkonnen is corrupt and only consider their own desires, hence the artificial alterations to most of Geidi Prime; hardly anything can grow there by itself and new things require the expense of older substances to develop.
* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': The Normandy crew has two redhead [=NPCs=]. One is the ThePollyanna, but the other is a hotheaded BraveScot who fits even if he's an engineer rather than a fighter.
** PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard can be one depending on player choices, especially now that the default female Shepard in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' is a SignificantGreenEyedRedhead.
* Inverted in ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'', in which (by hair color) Aribeth is the closest thing to a redhead among all of the [=NPCs=] but is also the most rational and collected of the entire cast (until the [[MindRape dreams]] begin).
* At first glance, this trope is averted in ''Dragon Age: Origins'', where pious "good girl" Leliana is a redhead and "bad girl" Morrigan is a brunette. But Morrigan is a frosty kind of dark - sexual but not emotional; whereas Leliana is a former seductress-assassin and potentially an affectionate romance option for the player's character (whether male or female).
** If Leliana becomes "hardened" due to her personal quest, she plays this trope perfectly straight from then on.
** Aveline from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' also seems to be one, and various redheaded [=NPCs=] play it straight, subvert it, etc.
* Lilith from ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' has ElementalPowers in a game otherwise mostly devoid of sorcery.
* Natalie from ''VideoGame/ApeEscape''.
* [[PlayingWithFire Axel]] from KingdomHearts.
* The titular heroine of ''[[AtelierSeries Atelier Liese]]''. [[spoiler:She is slightly tamer by the time she reappears in ''VideoGame/{{Atelier Annie|Alchemists of Sera Island}}'', but still.]]
* [[TraumaCenter Trauma Team]] features Maria Torres, who is in first response. She seems [[DarkSkinnedRedhead pretty tanned, too]].
* As stated above, Misty from ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue''. [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Flannery]] (who's a [[PlayingWithFire Fire-type]] Gym Leader) and [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Gardenia]] fit to a point, too.
** Maxie from ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' is an interesting subversion- despite being an EvilRedhead who likes PlayingWithFire, he doesn't have the personality!
** Mars from ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'', one of the Team Galactic admins who of all things has a short temper.
** Chili from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', Unova's resident Fire-type Gym Leader.
** Silver, the rival of the ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver''
** Pokémon example: Darmanitan, the absolutely ''berserk''-looking daruma doll gorilla, is covered in red fur. A literal example too, as it's a [[PlayingWithFire Fire]]-type. The series has a few other examples like this.
** From the NobunagasAmbition crossover, VideoGame/PokemonConquest gives us Kai, who has ''literal'' fiery red hair. Not in the FlamingHair sense; this woman's hair ''shapes'' like flames when she gets angry, and looks like an explosion when she get's shocked. Fittingly, her Perfect Link is Darmanitan, listed directly above.
** From the Pokémon ranger sideseries, we have Lavanna.
* [[BlackMagicianGirl Jessica]] from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'' is a classic [[{{Tsundere}} Tsunde-redhead]] with the [[GirlishPigtails pigtails to match]]. She's also the games' [[FetishFuelStationAttendant richest]] [[{{Stripperific}} source]] of Grade-A [[MsFanservice fanservice]].
** Ashlynn from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'' is an earlier example of a FieryRedhead in the series and, like Jessica from ''VIII'', [[BlackMagicianGirl specializes in offensive magic]] and thus is also fiery.
** And Alena from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIV'', who (despite the pointy hat) isn't even a magic user, but instead a princess who would sooner punch her problems away than act like the stereotypical princess her father wants her to be.
* Tsubaki of ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' is a rare example of this trope being DoubleSubverted. She's a redhead, but for all of the first game (where she was an NPC) she was a studious, level-headed, rather pleasant ProperLady. Where the double subversion kicks in is when she is introduced as a playable character with her own story in the second game: she's actually a ClingyJealousGirl to her love-interest Jin. [[spoiler:It goes so far that not only does she become a vengeful, screaming maniac whenever someone gets too close to him, she actually tries to murder her friend Noel after BigBad Hazama convinces her that Noel stole away her chance to be with him, and she performs a FaceHeelTurn]].
* [[BlackMagicianGirl Aurora]] from ''VideoGame/BlackSigil'', [[PlayingWithFire with powers to match]]. So. Many. {{Fireballs}}.
* Asch from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' is rude, crude and liable to shout at everyone [[spoiler: Except Natalia.]] [[spoiler: He has his reasons, such as a clone replacing him and his family leaving him for dead because of it.]]
* Joanna Dark from ''VideoGame/PerfectDark'' and its prequel ''VideoGame/PerfectDarkZero''. Although, in the first game, her hair looks more brown than red, her personality is still ''FieryRedhead''.
* Subverted with Khalid in ''BaldursGate'', who is anything but fiery.
** Nalia in the sequel is a straightforward example, however.
* Cass in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' is a [[TheAlcoholic hard drinkin']], [[ClusterFBomb foul-mouthed]] spitfire of a woman who also happens to be mighty handy with a shotgun.
* ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' presents to us Zorne Sepperin, who's a short-tempered, impulsive, and moody little girl with love affections towards Graf Michael Sepperin (whom she regards as her father despite the absence of blood ties) and a knack for creating and throwing bombs [[{{Expy}} a la Bomberman]].
* Brooks in ''The Orion'' Conspiracy plays this trope straight to a T. She can cuss, she can fight, she can have sex, she can do a lot.
* ''HarvestMoon'' has various FieryRedHead's, though the most famous are the two Ann's.
* ''VideoGame/InThe1stDegree'' presents Ruby Garcia. She is a redhead (CaptainObvious), her first name refers to red, and she has the attitude. She is the girlfriend of the defendent James Tobin, and she wants to believe that he's not a murderer. In fact, asking the wrong questions (especially questions that make Tobin sound like a murderer) will get you an explosive outburst from her.
* [[MeaningfulName Ursula Unquenchablefire]], the Amazon leader in ''VideoGame/TheSpellcastingSeries''. [[InformedAbility Apparently quite the warrior and leader]], but not real big on foreplay.
* Liza, from ''Kaiser Knuckle''.
* From VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}, RED, Falcom, and Cave, though the latter is a subversion since her personality is cool as ice.
* The eponymous VideoGame/BattleGirl.
* VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe. A lot of his attacks are even fire related.
* Nadine from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'''s ''Point Lookout'' expansion pack.
* Mama from ''VideoGame/{{Cooking Mama}}'', despite looking like she's an innocent woman that loves to cook and not [[FireballEyeballs spoil her food]].
* Averted in ''StarCraft''. Sarah Kerrigan, with blood-red hair, has a [[IceQueen cool, calculating, and professional]] personality.
* Doug from ''VideoGame/RuneFactory4'' is a hot-tempered, red-headed dwarf. [[spoiler:But he's also capable of being cool and calculating, as his plot to get revenge on Ventuswill shows.]]
* The red-headed Gladiator from ''VideoGame/{{Sacred}}'' is the BigGuy among playable characters and a specialized mêlée fighter. According to the lines he occasionally shoots when fighting, he is also [[BloodKnight very enthousiastic to fight and kill]].
* In what could be another double subversion, ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' gives us Miss Fortune. She's red-headed and passionate... but falls more into the territory of cool-headed, teasing and seductive FemmeFatale MsFanservice, yet still has a competitive edge. That is, until she's told to use her ultimate skill, Bullet Time, in which she goes very fiery and let out a great laugh as she pelts you with bullets.
* Punk Giana from ''VideoGame/TheGreatGianaSisters'' and its modern counterparts.
* In the seventh installment of the ''VideoGame/DarkParables'', the Fairy Tale Detective meets Literature/{{Rapunzel}}'s betrothed, Prince Ross. He's a red-haired, red-eyed {{Hunk}} who wields both a FlamingSword and ElementalPowers of fire, and he's rather intense and comes across as more than a little angry. He's an extremely good person, however, and he loves Rapunzel devotedly.
* Captain Lorimette, in ''VideoGame/QueenAtArms'', is a regal and dignified LadyOfWar - but she's also very much this when her buttons are pressed.
* [[BigGood Mii Koryuji]] from ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' gets riled up by pretty much everyone. [[ActionGirl She also kicks lots of ass]] and is a [[TheCheerleader Cheerleader]] straight out of high school with GreenEyes.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/{{MAG ISA}}'' -- (subversion) [[http://mag-isa.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/119746 Claudita]] is a red-head but violence is always her last resort.
* Oasis from ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. She tends to alternate between extreme giddiness (usually when Torg acts nice to her) and extreme [[{{Yandere}} jealousy and rage]] (usually when something comes between her and Torg). {{Justified|Trope}} since these emotions were programmed into her by Dr. Steve. In addition, she's frequently accompanied by fire-related motifs such as ThePhoenix. It turns out that [[spoiler:"fiery" is literal; she's [[PlayingWithFire pyrokinetic]].]]
* Kestrel from ''Webcomic/QueenOfWands''.
* White Mage from ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater''.
* Catalina from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''. Her catchphrase is [[NoIndoorVoice "JACKASSES!"]], and when angered, she's loud enough to make [[DistantReactionShot aliens in outer space pause and ask "What was that noise?"]]
** Nanase. Just Nanase.
* Wildy San from ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures''.
* Georgia's best friend Rita in ''Webcomic/FineSometimesRain'' is a fiery redhead who is always ready to defend her friends.
* Princess Voluptua from ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob''.
* Surma from ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''. Her daughter, Antimony, also has some of this personality, but it's almost completely tempered by [[EmotionlessGirl her stoicism]]. Annie has an associated fire motif, since she has a talent for etherically manipulating fire with [[AmplifierArtifact the blinker stone]]. And it's eventually revealed [[spoiler:Surma and Annie are both descended from a fire elemental.]]
-->'''Reynardine:''' (To Antimony) Haha! Well, you may have everyone fooled with your stoic facade, but not me! You have a fire in you, child, a fire that belonged to your mother!
* Samantha from ''Webcomic/MoltenBlade'', both a [[PlayingWithFire fiery]] redhead and the intended meaning.
* Monica Villareal from ''Webcomic/WapsiSquare'', although in comparison to [[BadassNormal her friend Shelly]] or the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot golem girls]], she doesn't particularly stick out in terms of fieryness.
* Ratheel of ''Webcomic/{{Juathuur}}'' is a male example.
* Sixx from ''Webcomic/{{Collar 6}}''.
* [[http://www.thebeastlegion.com/issue-07-page-9-her-power/ Fyre]] from the ''Webcomic/TheBeastLegion'' fit's the trope perfectly. Not only does she have read hair but is a fire bending master.
* Trawn from ''Webcomic/ElectricWonderland'', the red-headed editor-in-chief of the ''Nettropolis Free Press'', expresses strong passions for news reporting and keeping her friends/employees safe, although she also has a bit of a temper sometimes.
* Miriam from ''Webcomic/OutThere''.
* Scarlet 'Red' Macrumble from ''Webcomic/GirlsInSpace''.
* Tailii from [[http://comicshortsonline.thecomicseries.com/ Comic Shorts]].
* Haley Starshine from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''. [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch "Sneak attack- BITCH!"]]
** Haley is a bit of a subversion: she suffers from considerable self-loathing and feels it necessary to hide her true feelings much of the time, believing people wouldn't like her if they really knew her.
* Bob in ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge''.
* Dave from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', sort of - he was frequently assumed to be by the fanbase (possibly even given a nod on one of Hussie's Formsprings), but after the reveal that [[spoiler: he and Rose are siblings]], the fanbase eventually agreed on blonde. Hussie's current stance on the issue is that Dave's hair color is whatever you want it to be, so he can still be a Fiery Redhead if you want.
* Alexander Hamilton from ''Webcomic/TheDreamer''.
* The eponymous main character of ''Webcomic/SarahZero'' is an example of this. Sarah is headstrong, loud, and the guitarist in a rock band.
* Layla from ''Webcomic/FarOutThere'' [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1027704/page-57-clothes-in-the-future-must-stay-really-clean/ most]] [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1071313/page-240-blow-up/ definitely]] [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1145154/page-332-calm-down-before-you-hurt-yourself/ qualifies]].
* Freija from ''Webcomic/TheSenkari'' is [[http://www.the-senkari.com/2010/12/22/12222010/ implied]] to be this.
* Anja Baker from ''Webcomic/RegularGuy''. Though she mostly keeps it on a low simmer, she is also the character least likely to put up with BS.
* Benny of ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' is a hot, redheaded [[CuteMonsterGirl troll]] with a very short temper. She happily beats the living daylights out of anyone that irritates her...and she's a ''priestess''.
* Dana, [[WholesomeCrossdresser "Cookie's Elle-Boy Rival"]] in the ''Webcomic/JetDream'' "It's Cookie!" spinoff [[RemixComic Remix Comics]]. He's modeled on Chili Storm from ''ComicBook/MillieTheModel''.
* Scar from ''Webcomic/{{Cordless}}'', to a T.
* SKO and TKO from ''Webcomic/ElfBlood'' are normally generally quite calm and reserved, even kindly. Get them in the same room together and watch their tempers flare.
* Marron, the eggroll/bondage emporium waitress turned artist, from ''Webcomic/VoodooWalrus'' is an example of this as her introduction involves threatening a co-worker with an iron maiden and then smashing a phone book into the skull of one of the main characters when he gets a little too blatant with his flirtations.
** Mac could be seen as another example of this, but it's been over a year since she was last depicted with her natural red hair color.
* Mal from ''Webcomic/HeadTrip''. She ''can'' be calm, rational, and logical, but she is definitely a Heroic Sociopath and a ''lot'' more fun when she's being violent to the stupid people.
* Ash and (to a lesser extent) Missi from ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}.''
* Red in ''Webcomic/RedsPlanet.'' A particular BerserkButton is being called Red.
* Melissa Thayer, a fox scientist from ''Webcomic/{{Outworld}}''. She's nice most of the time, but she has her moments.
* Nin Wah the red panda from ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'', who sports a fiery FurryFemaleMane and will [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2010/01/31/bad-choice-of-words/ destroy you]] if you press her BerserkButton.
* The titular character of ''Webcomic/{{Nimona}}'' ''definitely'' qualifies, despite being a sidekick to NobleDemon Ballister Blackheart, she's certainly more bloodthirsty and energetic than her superior. Being a shapeshifter, her red hair doubles as her MorphicResonance, giving her forms an overall red tone.
* Guy from ''Webcomic/TwoGuysAndGuy''. She once said only considers Wayne her friend because she ''only'' dislikes him mildly. She had to take happy pills for her anger issues. And she said she hoped Wayne was dead for using the word "literally" wrong among other things.
* Cinna Grossul from ''Webcomic/{{Pacificators}}.'' She [[LadySwearsALot swears like a sailor,]] and ''always'' [[FlippingTheBird flips off]] her arch-nemesis/teammate [[ProperLady Muneca Powell]]. To top it off, she has PlayingWithFire powers… and if she's not careful, she'll become a ''literal'' [[BurningWithAnger fiery]] [[IncrediblyLamePun redhead]].
* ''[[http://www.absolutehotsister.com/ Absolute Hot Sister]]'' has Ellen, the {{Deuteragonist}}. She's the young sister of the {{Protagonist}} Kevin who not-so-secretly has a [[BrotherSisterIncest crush]] on her and always does his not-so-best effort to resist his incestuous feelings.
* Tyler Dawn from ''[[{{Webcomic/Morphe}} morphE]]''. Long red hair, a hot temper and a pathological need to prove himself, despite being surrounded by people who are better than him in many respects.
* Richard Dark from "Webcomic/{{Xenospora}}" is one. The first time we see him is when he's yelling at his colleague.
* Breaker from ''Webcomic/{{Break}}'' is a gal with lovely crimson locks...who will not hesitate to pound you into the ground with [[KiAttacks Ki-Powered]] [[ActionGirl martial arts]] if you get on her nerves
* Main character Amaltea, in ''Webcomic/SwordPrincessAmaltea'', is temperamental, easily enraged and outspoken and has red hair to match her personality.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* In ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'', the rogue Vaetris has red hair and has quite a fiery personality.
* Aptly-nicknamed Emily "Phoenix" Shifter from ''Orderly Chaos'' is a sweeter, girlier version who still packs plenty of passion into a little package.
* Fireball of the WhateleyUniverse. Red hair, short temper. Oh, and that fire manifestation power. And she's AxCrazy.
** Powerful mage Fey counts too. [[BewareTheNiceOnes Do]] ''[[BewareTheNiceOnes not]]'' [[BewareTheNiceOnes piss her off]]. Plus, when it comes to fire, no one else has what she has.
* The Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse had Heatwave, a fire-wielding mutant SuperHero. When she turns on her powers, her red hair [[FlamingHair becomes fiery in the most literal sense of the word]].
* There are quite a lot of redheads in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'', and a fair portion of them fit. Examples include [[AntiHero Adam Dodd]], [[SmallNameBigEgo Jimmy Brennan]], [[KnightInSourArmor Aileen Borden]], [[ActionGirl Bridget Connolly]], and [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain Rob Jenkins]].
* Fanart for ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' always has Tex with red hair. With her black armor, that's [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver the only logical choice]].
** Also, [[spoiler:Agent Carolina of Project Freelancer.]]
* Pat from ''WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay''
* Faun and Naole in ''{{Tasakeru}}''.
* Deirdre Rees from [[http://gaius0artemis.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4lwgxe Night Hunters]]. Timid, but has potential.
* Creator/AllisonPregler aka Lupa from WebSite/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, whose GenkiGirl personality dips into [[PsychopathicWomanchild deranged]] territory in crossovers. She's since dropped the costumes and funny voices since leaving TGWTG.
* Lizzie Bennet of TheLizzieBennetDiaries, especially when she gets worked up over the interpersonal drama dominating over her life.
* Rya from Bonus Stage.
* Lyphia from ''Literature/MageLife'' leaves the protagonist tongue-tied the first time he sees her, and later rebukes him when he interrupts her mid-speech.
* Josh Hadley, co-host of ''WebOriginal/{{Radiodrome}}'', ''Lost in the Static'', and, most appropriately, ''What the Fuck?!?''. Best described as the [[Franchise/GreenLantern Guy Gardner]] of internet radio.
* When [[WebVideo/{{yourchonny}} Chonny]] is acting as his ill-tempered mother for his videos, he dons a short, scraggly red wig.
* Main character Austin of ''Literature/{{Antlers Colorado}}'' is generally stoic, but has been shown to have quite a proclivity for fighting when provoked. WordOfGod says that he only dyes his hair red, though.

%%%
%%%
%%* Niko from ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers''. Daisy O'Mega in the same series.
* Taken literally with the hot-tempered and red-headed Flame Princess in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' who often swings between adorable & cute and angry & violent.
%%* Katella from ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog''.
* ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'': Brittany. it's not sure if she's redhead, but DAMN, she's fiery.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'':
** Gwen fits this trope, but in the {{Time Skip}}ped sequel ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'', she seems [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks to have outgrown it]], unless you hurt her loved ones. That's when things start blowing up.
** Ben's Rath form is a FieryRedhead over most of his body, being an anthro tiger. He's also UnstoppableRage personified.
* Nonny from WesternAnimation/BubbleGuppies is an inversion. He's actually quite the [[TheStoic stoic.]]
%%* Ace [=McCloud=] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Centurions}}''.
%%* Atlanta from ''ClassOfTheTitans''. Theresa, to a lesser extent.
%%* Numbuh 86 in ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'', bordering on EvilRedhead.
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'': Averted by Jasmine "Jazz" Fenton. She wasn't a spitfire. She was a stuck-up (but caring) know-it-all. But her mother, Maddie, on the other hand...[[note]] but she's got brown hair; in fact, most fans think Jazz and her brother are adopted.[[/note]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'': Quinn Morgendorffer, when she gets really worked up. Usually suverted though, since she acts more like a DumbBlonde, despite having orange red hair.
* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'':
** Darkwing's adopted daughter Gosalyn. She is fierce and spirited and has red hair.
** Averted by the show's other notable red-haired character, Launchpad, who is a GentleGiant.
* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'': Dexter's family is split evenly between this and the DumbBlonde stereotype; he and his mother are fiery redheads and his sister and dad are happy-go-lucky yellow-haired [[TheDitz ditzes]].
%%* Beebe and Roger (and, at times, Judy) in ''{{Doug}}''.
* Averted by Sheila the Thief, of the WesternAnimation/DungeonsAndDragons cartoon, for she is not as much a boisterous fighter as her blonde little brother, Bobby...or her BlackBestFriend, Dianah.
* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'':
** Sarah is violent, screams a lot and has a HairTriggerTemper.
** Lee Kanker is a reckless, HotBlooded bully who also qualifies as EvilRedhead.
%%* Vicky from ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents''.
%%* Lois Griffin from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.
%%* Kyle from ''FanboyAndChumChum''.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'': Frankie, as Mr. Herriman and Bloo learn when they push her too far.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'':
** Fox. More determined than hot-tempered, however.
** Demona. As hot-tempered as her hair colour implies.
* ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'': Peg and Pistol form a mother-daughter pair of this. Peg is quite frightening when angry and is very assertive about her [[OnlySaneMan sensible opinions]] (unlike her ShrinkingViolet[=/=]ExtremeDoormat [[NoRespectGuy son]]) to the point she's actually able to control her otherwise bossy and dominating husband. Pistol is a GenkiGirl and a BrattyHalfPint.
%%* In ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', this is played straight with Manly Dan, but averted with his daughter, Wendy.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/{{Grojband}}'': Laney Penn bonus points for catching fire every so often.
* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'': Ernie Potts is a demolition man [[TheNapoleon Napoleon]] with a HairTriggerTemper. Though he is mostly bald, the hair he has left is red.
* Pepper Potts from ''IronManArmoredAdventures'' is a big time FieryRedhead and GenkiGirl.
%%* Jane from ''JaneAndTheDragon''.
%%* Saffi on ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' is this because she's CrazyAwesome.
%%* Jessie Bannon from ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures''.
%%* Shayera Hol/Hawkgirl from ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'': Kim has incredible drive and passion. Ironically, Animology calls these traits blue fox.
%%* The V.E.N.O.M warrior, Vanessa Warfield, from ''WesternAnimation/{{MASK}}''...although you may notice the dark streak on her hair.
%%* Kiva from ''WesternAnimation/{{Megas XLR}}''.
* ''WesternAnimation/MikeLuAndOg'' averted by Mike. While being a sports loving red haired girl, she is acutally calm and rather laid-back, compared to some shorter-tempered brunette princess named Lu. Though there are a few times when she's pushed over the edge like in "Sultans of Swat" and "To Serve Lu".
%%* Abraham Kane from ''{{WesternAnimation/Motorcity}}'', also an EvilRedhead.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** Rainbow Dash is a {{tomboy}} with tons of attitude, and though her [[MulticoloredHair mane has enough colours to fit her name]], her bangs are warmer colors (red, orange, and yellow) and are more prominent, while the cooler colors (green, blue, and purple) are mostly hidden behind her neck.
** Sunset Shimmer is ambitious, testy, sarcastic, hot-tempered, and red-haired -- although admittedly her hair's about an even mix of red and yellow.
%%* Teddy in ''MyLittlePonyTales''.
* ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn'': Pepper Ann Pearson, though she's more spacy and neurotic than fiery. In the uniform episode she admits that it's auburn, which other characters agree to once she tries to take credit for being the trope.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': Candance. However her long hair is more orange than red and is a overactive girl.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'':
** Subverted with Gretchen, as she's pretty easygoing, unless you make her ''really'' mad. She and raven-haired Spinelli actually swap their normal hair tropes: Gretchen's the brainy one (who ''was'' going to have black hair originally), while Spinelli's the fiery one. Played straight with Ashley Q.
** As flashbacks show us, Miss Finster was a redhead, and still fiery.
%%* Mackenzie Benders in ''WesternAnimation/RocketPower''.
* ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'': Bev Bighead can become this at times, mostly when she's irritated with Ed.
* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': [[ViolentGlaswegian The Scotsman]] is a loud, brutish warrior (and about the closest thing Jack has to a friend). Then there's his wife, who's even louder and more bad tempered than he is.
%%* Talon from ''WesternAnimation/SkeletonWarriors''.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** Kyle is this, often instigated as a result of [[{{Jerkass}} Cartman's]] antisemitism, racism, or greed. This can lead to his own {{Jerkass}} tendencies, approaching KnightTemplar at times. His mother, too, is a full blown fiery Jewish KnightTemplar redhead.
** Darryl Weathers, leader of an angry band of hicks bent on driving away the job-stealing "Goobacks" who immigrated from the future.
-->''"THEY TOOK OUR JOBS!"''
* ''WesternAnimation/SpidermanAndHisAmazingFriends'': Taken almost as literally as one possibly can with Firestar (she has brown hair in her human form).
* ''StarWarsTheCloneWars'': Death Watch member (and [[spoiler:Duchess Satine's sister]]) Bo-Katan [[spoiler: Kryze]]. Even though she is usually calm, she somewhat fits as a FieryRedhead due to being a rather aggressive character. Also is an EvilRedhead.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/StuntDawgs'': Sizzle, especially since she uses explosives!
%%* Volcana from ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''.
%%* He may be a minor character, but Johnny Sunspot is without a doubt the resident fiery redhead of SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo.
%%* Kimmy the [[TheCheerleader cheerleader]] LovableAlphaBitch from ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan''.
* ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'': If a headband counts as hair, Raphael certainly qualifies. Subverted in the comics, though, as all the turtles have red headbands.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': Starfire doesn't have the fiery temper ([[BewareTheNiceOnes unless you hurt her friends]]), but she's very passionate and [[GenkiGirl energetic]]. She even flies using "righteous fury!"
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTeddyRuxpin'': Young HotBlooded Prince Arin, whom the others often have to restrain from going off half-cocked charging into ''everything''. (Though his red hair is usually hidden underneath a helmet.)
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans'': Tyrone is usually a pretty mellow DeadpanSnarker, but he's been shown to have quite a temper in some episodes, like "Best Clowns in Town" and "Sinbad Sails Alone".
* ''TheBotsMaster'': Blitzy Zulander is easily the more hot-headed of the Zulander siblings, preferring full-on assaults against the Corp. She's also the main pilot of the combining ''HumongousMecha'' Jungle Fiver.
* ''TheDreamstone'': Amberly is usually [[WomenAreWiser rather level headed and soft spoken]]; however, her temper flares immensely at times. [[PityTheKidnapper The Urpneys know this]] [[CuteBruiser first hand]].
%%* Every woman in the Slaghoople bloodline in ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' -- Wilma's mother, Wilma, and Pebbles.
%%* Mallory [=McMallard=] from ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyDucks''.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'':
** Averted by calm, rational, redheaded Blossom. The 'fiery' one though is the brunette-haired Buttercup. Although she insists that she IS a fiery redhead in one of the interview promos for ''TheMovie''.
** Played straight with Princess Morbucks, who throws a tantrum when she doesn't get what she wants.
* Headstrong, passionate, and excitable Ray Stantz becomes one in ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' and its 90s successor ''WesternAnimation/ExtremeGhostbusters'' thanks to an AdaptationDyeJob (his hair is brown [Dan Aykroyd's natural hair color] in the movies). Ditto the Ghostbusters' SassySecretary Janine Melnitz, though to a lesser extent as her hair was already a reddish-brown color in the first movie.
%%* Doyle from ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays''.
%%* Groundskeeper Willie from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'': Sassette was this before Papa Smurf changed her into a real Smurf. That's where [[MeaningfulName she gets her name]]. Averted in the comic books, where she is more chatty than bratty when she was first created.
* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'': Otto is generally outgoing and friendly towards everyone around him, he doesn't appreciate it when adults are mean to him or do something incredibly stupid. Sometimes, the attitude towards these types of people are just plain spiteful. He will often argue and lose his temper all together a few times. Sometimes, he will work out a plan that has the sole purpose of simply humiliating someone, let alone get a mission completed.
%%* Izzy on the ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Total Drama]]'' series. In ''Revenge of the Island'', the normally level-headed Zoey can get this way [[InvokedTrope when provoked]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'':
** Subverted since the redhead Sam is a BadassBookworm and the brains of the group.
** However, Gabriella seems to be more spitfire than her daughter mentioned above.
* ''{{Transformers| Generation 1}}'':
** Cliffjumper is a hotheaded little red Autobot who is extremely paranoid and eager to blindly charge into a fight.
** Ironhide is a crusty old veteran, but is also eager to wade into a good fight. Has a red 'helmet' and main body.
** Hot Rod is brash, impetuous, and outspoken as a young Autobot, and retains a primarily red/magenta color. Averted later as he becomes solidly brick red as Rodimus Prime, but also becomes more morose, brooding, and jaded.
** Warpath is a shouty BoisterousBruiser with no subtlety and a love of combat, and turns into a maroon tank.
%%* Bloom from ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'', to some extent.
%%* WesternAnimation/YosemiteSam. Quite obviously.
* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'': Speedy, aka Red Arrow, was [[RageAgainstTheMentor ticked]] [[BerserkButton off]] at constantly being ComicBook/GreenArrow's sidekick and set off on his own. Despite this, he genuinely cares about his friends and looks after them. In secret.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Ruby is very much this, having a red tint in her hair along with being red overall. She is ''very'' HotBlooded, to the point of her evaporating an entire pool because of her anger.
* ''WesternAnimation/RainbowBrite'': Red Butler has orange hair and a red color motif. He is a headstrong boy.
