** The Fourth Hokage being Naruto's father was guessed by GenreSavvy readers from the moment he first appeared (in the ''first chapter''), mostly due to their similar hair and facial structures.

** In ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', the relation between N and Ghetsis is played as a very dramatic twist. However, more GenreSavvy fans were speculating some sort of relationship before we even knew much of who they were, starting the moment they noticed such close shades of green and distinctive curls/fray/whatever-you-want-to-consider-it. [[spoiler:This despite the fact N was adopted.]]

** A notable example that actually plays with this trope appears in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Radiant Dawn]]'', where the character Pelleas has blue hair and eyes while his mother Almedha has green hair and red eyes (which is an example of the trope in itself for anyone who's played ''Path of Radiance'') and his father, Ashnard, the deceased king of Daein, has blue hair and black eyes. However, while Ashnard is cruel and ambitious and Almedha is cunning and secretive, Pelleas doesn't share any of these characteristics, instead being just a naive, well-meaning young man. To the shock of everyone involved (but not any player with the least bit of GenreSavvy that has picked up on these cues), Pelleas turns out to be completely unrelated to the pair; an orphan Almedha started believing was her son out of grief of having lost her real one. Their real son is still alive, incidentally, and has black hair, red eyes, his father's pale skin, and many visual similarities to his mother.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemThracia776'', the {{Interquel}} to the above, also has Sara, a MysteriousWaif with silvery white hair. It's pretty much a dead giveaway that she has connections to the Loptyr Cult, specifically, that she's their leader Manfroy's granddaughter.

** It's easily missed on the first playthrough, however fans with a watchful eye will notice that in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' the only three major characters with green eyes and blond hair are Lillie, Gladion, and Lusamine. Late in the game it's revealed that they're a family. Lusamine is explicitly noted to be OlderThanTheyLook (looking as if she's in her late teens or early twenties when she's really in her forties), which only makes the reveal more obvious. The [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} anime]] didn't [[LateArrivalSpoiler try to hide this]], as it showed a picture of the three together only a few episodes in.

* In ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' games, only Adepts ever have AnimeHair in wacky colors and styles, usually [[ColorCodedElements reflecting their elemental affinity]]. Knowing this, anybody picking up ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'' will immediately identify Amiti (cyan-blue) as a [[MakingASplash Mercury Adept]], and Blados (dark green) and Chalis (pink) as Adepts of some sort.
** Amiti's blue hair is a twofer, since he lives in an area otherwise exclusive to non-Adepts with brown or black hair. This gives away the fairly early reveal that he's [[HeroicBastard not entirely of local stock]].

* There are few characters in ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' with blue hair. It comes out as little surprise that Craig is related to Stormer. Despite this his girlfriend Aja [[RelativeError thinks]] he's ''married'' to Stormer when he introduces her as "Mary Phillips" in a future episode.

A HairColorSpoiler is a plot twist that is spoiled by bizarre and improbable hair styles often seen in anime. In its most common form, a character is introduced who is related to an existing character. The writers might start dropping hints right away about their relationship, but it doesn't matter -- you already noticed that only those two characters have that exact shade of blue hair, because YouGottaHaveBlueHair.

*** There's an entire ''subplot'' about people noticing that Amiti [[StrongFamilyResemblance kinda looks like]] that one ''other'' [[PaperThinDisguise plot-important bishounen with cyan-blue hair]], and [[WeWouldHaveToldYouBut worrying about whether to point that out to him]].

* In ''VideoGame/AdvanceWars'': Days of Ruin, there are some fairly important connections between some of the characters that aren't immediately disclosed – unless, that is, you pay attention to who has whitish-blue hair. [[spoiler:That said, simply realising that the characters in question are members of the same family doesn't tell the whole story; there's more than one way to be genetically related to someone in a series with cloning technology…]]

** When you first meet Julia in the second generation of ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War]], her white hair is a big clue that she's related to either Deirdre or the Freege family. Given the context, it's unlikely to the be the latter, and once you open up her Holy Blood screen, it's very clear that she's Deirdre's daughter with Arvis.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', which house a person belongs to can often be determined simply by their appearance. This becomes a huge plot point in the first book, when Ned realizes that all King Robert's children are blonde, like the Lannister family on their mother's side, as opposed to having the dark hair associated with House Baratheon. He checks the lienage archives and goes to inspect all of Robert's illegitimate children (there are ''tons''), and not a single one is fair-haired. It's crucial to Ned realizing that the King's children are the product of an affair Queen Cersei had with her twin brother Jamie and that one of Ned's close friends Jon Arryn had also discovered this (though despite initial evidence the Lannisters were actually ''[[NotMeThisTime not]]'' the ones behind Arryn's death).
