* In ''Anime/SailorMoon'', there's some mystery regarding the strange princess from the Moon Kingdom. It's eventually revealed to be Usagi...after several earlier episodes had shown Tuxedo Mask having dreams about a woman in a princess dress and the exact same odango hairstyle as Usagi.

* Producers of ''Series/AgentCarter'' tried to avert this. Bridget Regan plays a proto-Black Widow type assassin. She's a natural redhead but producers had her dye the hair blonde to try and hide the twist (and to avoid the implication that all Black Widows are redheads).
* In the miniseries ''Series/TinMan'' Azkadelia being DG's sister is guessed ahead of time if one notes that the two of them are the only female characters with long dark hair in the OZ.

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.

* In retrospect, in ''SoulEater'' the late-series reveal that Asura and Death the Kid are brothers is hinted at by them both having black hair with white patterns in it.

* ''[[LufiaAndTheFortressOfDoom Lufia]]'s'' iconic blue hair, which makes it somewhat predictable that her expy Seena from ''LufiaTheLegendReturns'' will have an exact same twist that she's [[HighHeelFaceTurn Erim the Sinistral of Death]] in a disguise.

* In ''TheWorldEndsWithYou'', you'll probably assume from the box art that the two blondes with blue eyes and similar clothing styles are siblings. They even show up together; it's actually surprising when Rhyme mentions she actually just met Beat a few days ago. [[spoiler:They ''are'' siblings, but she's lost that memory.]] The matter doesn't come up until near the end of the game, and Neku is surprised at the reveal... but Beat is surprised Neku ''hadn't'' figured it out.

* 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 thinks he's ''married'' to Stormer when he introduces her as "Mary Phillips" in a future episode.

* In ''FasterThanAKiss'', Fumino, at one point, meets a woman who, at the end of the chapter, is revealed to be Shouma's mother/Kazuma's stepmother, completely shocking Fumino...even though the woman looked almost exactly like Shouma, even down to the hairstyle.

* The ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' series is very fond of this trope. A notable example 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 black hair and eyes. To the shock of everyone involved (but not any player with the least bit of GenreSavvy), 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 and his father's pale skin.

To the shock of everyone involved (but not any player with the least bit of GenreSavvy), 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.

** Although not exactly a spoiler or a secret, (since you make the pairings yourself first,) in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', all the children except for Lucina inherit the hair color of their parent's spouse, making it easy in some cases to tell who the child's other parent is with just a glance.
