* In ''SaintSeiya'', people inhabited by a god have hair colors not found in nature. Andromeda Shun has green hair, though this is never remarked upon by anyone. Come the Hades plot arc....

* ''BlackButler'': Combined with eye colors for [[OurAngelsAreDifferent the angels]]. Angela and Ash are the only character to have white hair and PurpleEyes (though Angela's hair is [[TrueBlueFemininity blueish]]). Turns out [[GenderBender they're]] [[{{Hermaphrodite}} the same]] [[VoluntaryShapeshifting being]].

* In ''MaiHime'' the fact that Reito and Mikoto are brother and sister is pretty easy to guess since they have the exact same hair and eye colors, but it takes close to the entire series for a proper [[TheReveal reveal]].

** This is Anime only, as in the Manga, both Shun and Saori are brunettes. Also, many of the Anime [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue haired]] characters are originally blonde, which includes Julian Solo. Considering how many non-god unnatural hair colors there are in the Anime, it's hardly a spoiler for anybody.

* 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 [[spoiler: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]].

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

* In the episode of the ''Manga/FairyTail'' anime where Mystogan is unmasked, it blatantly shows tufts of blue hair, a shade which is shared only by Jellal. It then goes a step further by showing he has the exact same tattoo as Jellal around his right eye. This came as a huge frustration to fans of the manga, especially the latter hint, which wasn't even given in the manga, making TheReveal much more surprising.

* Used in the ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' series occasionally. 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.

* 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.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' is much the same, with the exception of Shigure, all the children inherit the hair color of their parent's spouse.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
