* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', this is a trait several of the Titan Shifters have in regards to their Titan forms. For instance, [[spoiler:Eren's]] Titan form shares his eye and hair color, as does [[spoiler:Annie's]]. [[spoiler:Reiner's]] titan form shares similar build and hair color but [[spoiler:Bertolt's]] form is bald and only shares the eye color. Notably, [[spoiler:Bertolt sweating profusely]] matches the [[spoiler:Colossal's emissions of steam]].

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'', Joshua shares the same pale skin and deep red hair of his mother Queen Ismaire. This makes TheReveal that he's the missing hair far less surprising.

* Ririka from ''Manga/NurseAngelRirikaSOS'' has bright blond hair despite all of her family members, and almost all of her peers, having brown or black hair. This seems like a typical case of the protagonist having [[ImplausibleHairColor abnormal hair]] to distinguish them as important, however her hair color is [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold more than symbolic]]. Ririka is the reincarnation of the original Nurse Angel, who was also blonde, and is actually the Flower of Life she had been looking for the entire series.

** It's easily missed on the first playthrough, however fans with a watchful eye will notice that in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' the only four major characters with green eyes and blond hair are Lillie, Gladion, Lusamine, and Mohn. 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 even [[LateArrivalSpoiler try to hide this]], as it showed a picture of Lusamine and her children together only a few episodes in.

** Ends up being a RedHerring in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', where Sephiroth and Aeris's similar hairstyles end up being of no relevance. This was intended to foreshadow a twist where Sephiroth and Aeris turned out to be half-siblings, but this was lost when the plot was changed to incorporate Jenova.

** And in hindsight, Karin being a member of the Uzumaki clan was foreshadowed by her sharing the red hair that also belonged to Kushina, Naruto's mother.
** Furthermore, [[IKnewIt many fans guessed]] that Tobi was in some way Obito Uchiha even AFTER he claimed to be Madara Uchiha in part because of his identical short, spikey black hair.

** 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.
