* From ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series' backstory comes Pelinal [[MeaningfulName Whitestrake]], the legendary 1st Era hero of mankind/[[FantasticRacism racist]] [[TheBerserker berserker]]. Believed to have been a [[EternalHero Shezarrine]], [[GodInHumanForm physical incarnations]] of the spirit of the [[GodIsDead "dead" creator god]] Lorkhan (known to the Imperials as "[[IHaveManyNames Shezarr]]"), Pelinal came to [[FounderOfTheKingdom St. Alessia]] to serve as her [[PhysicalGod divine champion]] in the war against the [[AbusivePrecursors Ayleids]]. Pelinal was known to have white hair despite his young appearance, though it was [[BloodSplatteredWarrior often stained brown with elfblood]]. To the [[OurElvesAreBetter races of Mer (Elves)]], he was instead an EvilAlbino.

* [[FriendToAllLivingThings Kira]] from ''Film/TheDarkCrystal'' seems to have this look going on, except for the hazel eyes. Then again, she's a [[SpaceElves Gelfling]] living on the planet Thra, so it might be hard to apply earthly biology to these critters.

Then again, she's a [[SpaceElves Gelfling]] living on the planet Thra, so it might be hard to apply earthly biology to these critters. Also, [[AluminumChristmasTrees some cases of albinism do produce darker eye colors like hazel]], particularly in ethnic groups that typically have darker skin and eyes. One such case is [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaun_Ross_(model) Shaun Ross]], an African American fashion model (who's also appeared in music videos for artists like Music/KatyPerry, Music/{{Beyonce}}, Music/{{Issues}}, and Music/LeonaLewis).

* Impa from ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' has been portrayed this way starting with ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', where she had white hair despite being middle-aged at the oldest, red eyes, and a fierce loyalty to Princess Zelda and the Kingdom of Hyrule. This is [[PlanetOfCopyhats extended to the entire Sheikah tribe]] in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'', where they all have MysticalWhiteHair, though their eyes tend more toward a muted maroon or mahogany instead of the crimson Impa had in previous games. The villainous [[EvilCounterpart Yiga Clan]] offshoot of the Sheikah are presumably their EvilAlbino counterparts, but we never see them underneath their masks and robes.

This trope is popular in Japan, where pale skin is considered very fashionable. In the west, [[ButNotTooWhite pale skin is usually frowned upon]] as looking [[UndeathlyPallor sickly or creepy]], making the [[EvilAlbino inverse of the trope]] more common. Heroic Albinos sometimes, but rarely, have the [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]] found in some cases of albinism in humans.

* ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'' has Okkoto the white boar god. Despite the movie's GreyAndGrayMorality, Okkoto is certainly heroic in the sense of being a ReasonableAuthorityFigure and a courageous fighter.

* Caliban in ''Film/Logan'' has pale white skin and eyes and shows his caring side by taking care of the ailing and elderly Professor Xavier and assisting the deteriorating Logan. Unfortunately his albinism gives a huge weakness to sunlight, which is used to torture him by [[BigBad Pierce]]. [[spoiler: He commits a heroic sacrifice attempting to take down Pierce.]]
