* In ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', Kenny is blond, his parents have brown hair (his father) and red hair (his mother), and his older brother and younger sister also have brown hair. The reason could be some people have blond hair as children and light brown hair as adults, but as stated before, Karen already has brown hair.

** Craig has black hair, but his father is a redhead and his mother is a blonde. Though if the blowup-doll replica of his mother and her [[HairyGirl bush]] is accurate, she's probably not a natural blonde.

* Takeshi and his sister from ''Manga/YourLieInApril'' have blond hair however their parents have dark hair. Similarly, Kaori's parents are brunettes but she has blond hair. It's even more noticeable because they're the only characters in the series without black or brown hair.

* Also from ''Franchise/XMen'', [[SuperVillian supervillain]] Vulcan is the black-haired son of brown-haired Corsair and blonde Katherine Summers. The black hair could be part of his mutation, though.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Injustice Gods Among Us}}'' ComicBook/BlackCanary's and ComicBook/GreenLantern's son is a blond. The problem is, Black Canary dyes her hair blonde. She actually has black hair. It's possible the colorists forgot that and [[AdaptationDyeJob made her a natural blonde]].

* ''{{Roots}}'''s Chicken George is the son of Kunta Kinte's daughter Kizzy and her white slave master; he is one of the darkest characters in the series, significantly more so than his mother (and looks about the same age, though that's due to a [[PlayingGertrude different trope]]).

* Sam and Dean Winchester from ''{{Series/Supernatural}}'' resemble each other so little that not a single character on the show who doesn't already know even ventures a guess that they're brothers, and the majority of strangers think they're a gay couple. This is true even when they're pretending to be FBI agents or have some other plausible explanation for working so closely together.

* 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/HarvestMoonSNES''. The only resemblance is that Eve has blonde hair while Karen has blonde... [[MulticoloredHair ba]][[PatchworkKids ngs]].

[[spoiler:The manga revealed late into the series that Daikichi's grandfather isn't Rin's biological daughter. It's possible she got her hair color from her father.]]

* In Disney's ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'', an interracial OfficialCouple emerged at the end featuring dark-skinned, ethnically Romani Esmeralda and blonde, Caucasian adonis Phoebus. Come 2002, a direct-to-video sequel was released, in which Haley Joel Osment plays Esmeralda and Phoebus' son.. who is a complete carbon copy of his father, equally blonde and white. Dark melanin pigmentation genes are stronger than light ones, and though not entirely dominant, this should result in a skin tone slightly lighter than Esmeralda's. And blonde hair is genetically completely implausible with Esmeralda's dark hair being a dominant gene over the recessive gene of Phoebus' blonde hair. In short, the only way to explain the child's completely white appearance is a retroactive RaceLift to Esmeralda, who, ironically, was ''already'' subject to a RaceLift in the original, going from a white girl adopted by Roma in the original book to a born one in the film.

* Series/GoodLuckCharlie: Parents Bob and Amy are blonde and blue-eyed, but their only blonde, blue-eyed kid is PJ. Gabe and Toby are dark-haired with brown eyes. While Teddy and Charlie are blonde, Teddy has brown eyes and Charlie's eyes are either brown or green.
* Series/LivAndMaddie: Both parents are brown-eyed brunettes and their son (Joey) looks like [[Series/{{Victorious}} Robbie Shapiro]] (and Parker, also a brunette, is the Rooneys' answer to Ruthie Camden), so [[SarcasmMode its very plausible that the two daughters are platinum blondes]]. Apparently the producers thought no one would notice. Blonde hair and green eyes are both recessive traits, so it is technically possible for the twins to have them though.
