* In ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'', Riley has dirty-blonde hair and blue eyes, yet her parents both have brown eyes and brown hair. Either Riley has inherited recessive genes or Riley's mother was unfaithful to her father. Or it could be simply that Riley is prepubescent, so her eyes haven't yet darkened to their adult colour.

* Karen is the only girl in ''VideoGame/{{Harvest Moon 64}}'' who has less than a passing resemblance to her implied grandmother, in her case Eve from ''VideoGame/Harvest Moon1''. The only resemblance is that Eve has blonde hair while Karen has blonde... [[MulticoloredHair ba]][[PatchworkKids ngs]].

* ''{{Dragonball}}'' was fairly realistic in this, especially considering the prevalence of YouGottaHaveBlueHair, and the exceptions are in the vein of UncannyFamilyResemblance rather than this trope.

* VideoGame/{{Xenogears}} plays with this--because both of her parents are blond (as is everyone else on the FloatingContinent Solaris) and she's a redhead, Elly feels like a literal RedHeadedStepchild to her mother, thinking that her real mother was her red-haired nanny. However, this is both plausible (the way red hair works genetically allows for blonds to be recessive for it) and [[spoiler: a moot point anyway, since the reason she looks like she does is because she is a {{Reincarnation}} of The Anti-Type.]]

* Invoked for the merfolk in ''Anime/OnePiece'': due to their unusual biolgy, merfolk carry the genes of all their immediate ancestors, so family members are not even guaranteed to be of the same ''species''. [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/onepiece/images/9/99/Ryugu_Kingdom_Princes.png These three]] are full-brothers. Compare them in both appearance and size to [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/onepiece/images/c/c1/Shirahoshi_Anime_Infobox.png their sister.]]

** Then there's her grandmother, who has black hair as well. It could have just skipped a generation.

* A plot point in ''Series/GameOfThrones'', despite being set in a world with no knowledge of genetics. All three "Baratheon" children all have blonde hair and green eyes like their mother, Cersei, despite the fact that their father, Robert Baratheon, has very dark brown (described as black) hair and eyes. While this in itself is possible, Ned reads through a book detailing Baratheon lineage and discovers that every dark haired Baratheon has always given birth to dark haired children even if their mother was blonde. This would make it a lot less likely that Robert would be carrying recessive genes for blonde hair. Even without knowledge of genetics, this arouses suspicion, and is what leads Ned to the conclusion that Cersei's children are actually bastards born out of incest with her dirty-blonde brother Jamie.
