* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Ghost is stark white, which is also the colour of Rhaegar Targaryen's hair, fitting since Jon is his son. Ghost's albinism also has heraldic significance. A custom very common in Westeros is for highborn, acknowledged illegitimate children to use the heraldry of their noble-born parent's House but with the colors inverted. For Jon, this means that his personal sigil is a ''white direwolf'' on a grey field.

* Setsuna Sakurazaki of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' is an unusual case for being a [[HalfHumanHybrid half]]-[[{{Obake}} Demon]], and yet - being member of the Uzoku/crow tribe - somehow has white wings. [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampire]] Evangeline has alluded to her wearing contact lenses and dying her hair. For demons in particular, it makes for FantasticRacism.

* The Albino Pirate from ''WesternAnimation/ThePiratesInAnAdventureWithScientists'' probably counts as this. He's certainly not an EvilAlbino.
* Roger Rabbit from ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' has white fur, [[FunnyAnimalAnatomy very pale pads on his feet]], and light blue eyes (light blue sclerae and blue irides). Although he also has black pupils, brown eyebrows, and an orange shock of hair on his head, and so not actually albino, it's clear his appearance was inspired by albino rabbits. However, giving him pink eyes was probably ruled out as too creepy, [[spoiler: and would've also fit Eddie's description of the "burning red eyes" of his brother's killer, confusing the issue of Roger's guilt or innocence]].

* Ruby from ''Roleplay/RubyQuest'' might be this. She is referred to once as being white and is based on a character from ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' who is explicitly albino, but it's never said whether ''Ruby Quest'''s Ruby is albino, and the black-and-white artwork makes it hard to tell.

* Xerxes Break from the manga ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' is an albinistic hero with a very intricate past ([[spoiler:his past self, Kevin Regnard, sacrificed his life (to an extent) to reverse the deaths of the people he served in a desperation play]]) and a strange sense of humor. Though his motives are sometimes suspect, he tends towards self-sacrifice in times of need ([[spoiler:by using his Chain, the Mad Hatter, for example. Which is slowly killing him with every use as a result of the steps he took as Kevin Regnard]]).
