* Jellal Fernandes of ''Manga/FairyTail'' might not be the main hero, but he definitely fits the bill, [[SingleTargetSexuality as the only woman he's ever shown attraction to]] is FieryRedhead Erza Scarlet. Back when they were children, he was the one who gave her a surname, after her beautiful red hair.

** When Rei falls in love with both Shinji and Asuka she can not help to fantasize fondly about her beautiful red hair (despite of previously hating red).

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'': Shinji states several times that he is irrevocably in love with Asuka. He also finds her "long, silky", red locks very distracting.

* ''Series/{{NCIS}}'': Gibbs has been married four times and all of his wives were redheads. His first wife Shannon was killed while they were still married and the other three wives are ''ex''-wives. He's also had an affair with his (redheaded) boss and was dating a redheaded Army investigator. And everyone else recognizes it. When he first met the investigator, the other team members noted the growing attraction and pointed out the red hair as proof it was inevitable. Tony even said that "Gibbs just met his fourth ex-wife". Possibly hereditary - his father had Betty Grable painted on the nose of his P-51, but Gibbs' mother was a redhead.

* [[Creator/KevinCostner Eliot Ness]] from ''Film/TheUntouchables'' is married to a lovely redhead named [[Creator/PatriciaClarkson Catherine]].

* Creator/DeborahKerr benefited from this in many of her films - notably ''Film/ThePrisonerOfZenda'', ''Film/KingSolomonsMines'', ''Film/AnAffairToRemember'' and ''Film/TheKingAndI'' - where she was a beautiful redhead who attracted the male hero. Uniquely she was rarely portrayed as a FieryRedhead, since so many of her parts were delicate ladies. Subverted in ''Film/BlackNarcissus'' where her character was rejected by two suitors - and the second rejected another redhead who made advances on him.
* The redheaded Lucy in Creator/FrancisFordCoppola's ''[[Film/BramStokersDracula Dracula]]'' is pursued by three suitors who all turn heroic by the end of the film. In the original novel, the character is a brunette. Sadie Frost (who played Lucy) dyed her natural brown hair red because she and Creator/WinonaRyder looked too similar.
* ''{{Film/Elizabeth}}'' has Cate Blanchett once again in this trope as Queen Elizabeth I. Although becoming King of England is a huge draw as well, Elizabeth is portrayed as very beautiful and desirable. She was reportedly known for her beautiful red hair in her youth. Her sister Mary was a similar case, noted to have beautiful red hair when she was young. It had faded to grey by the time she did get married, so she rarely gets portrayed this way.
