* ''Series/RebeldeWay''. Pablo is a ladies' man, but the one girl who got the closest to earn his love beyond just physical attraction (and with him forms the second main couple of the series) is Marizza, notable in that she's the only redhead in the ensemble cast (even if it's dyed).

Considering that less than 1% of the world's population have red hair (mainly among Celts, Scandinavians, and Eastern European Jews), there is a disproportionate number of red-haired female characters out there, and an inordinate number of them are The Hero's winning {{Love Interest|s}}. (On top of that, she is also inordinately likely to have [[SignificantGreenEyedRedhead green eyes]] to go with it.)

* This was averted in ''Series/{{Batman}}''. Barbara Gordon was introduced in the 1960s ''Batman'' show however she was not Robin's love interest as she is today.; Dick was several years her junior anyway. She also wasn't Batman's love interest. Barbara wasn't even a real redhead when introduced. In the series, her natural hair is brown while her iconic red hair [[ClarkKenting is a wig]].

* Clara Bow's career was made of being in this role. She was one of the earliest Hollywood sex symbols. Due to being a silent era actress her films weren't in colour, however the effect was still the same. Her StarMakingRole was in 1927's ''Film/{{It|1927}}''. In it, she played a redheaded shopgirl named Betty who had "it" (an UnusualEuphenism for sex appeal).

* Kushina Uzumaki, ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'''s mother, and her husband, the Fourth Hokage [[SuperSpeed Minato Namikaze]]. Subverted at first and then played straight. Kushina was initially mocked for her long red hair, but unfortunately for her bullies, it was the source of her power and [[PrehensileHair she even fought with it]], earning her the nickname "Red [[HotBlooded]] Habanero." When she was kidnapped by Kumo ninja, she [[TrailOfBreadCrumbs left behind strands of her hair]] for anyone to follow, which helped Minato track her down. [[RescueRomance When he rescued her]], Minato boldly stated that her red hair was "beautiful." Given that he was the first person to compliment her hair, Kushina was putty in Minato's arms very quickly. Afterwards, Kushina was renowned for her beauty in the [[HomeBase Leaf Village]].

* General: If in the original work a redhead is TheHero's OfficialCouple, ImpliedLoveInterest or a side of the LoveDodecahedron, the odds are that there will be a ton of fancreations of that work getting them together and therefore invoking the trope. Thus, the great number of fanworks featuring ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji/Asuka]]'', ''[[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Ash/Misty]]'', ''[[Franchise/SpiderMan Peter/MJ]]'', ''[[Comicbook/XMen Cylops/Phoenix]]''...

''Especially'' Shinji/Asuka, who get mentioned on ThisVeryWiki so much, you'd be hard-pressed to find a page where they aren't mentioned.
