* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' averts this with Hermes and his family (black Jamaican) and Amy and her family (ethnically Chinese, born on Mars), as well as several incidental characters (most notably Hermes' rival Barbados Slim). Though only Amy and Hermes are part of the main cast sooo...
** But there are also only three whites in the main cast. Two of them are related to each other, and one is a mutant, so it's not that bad.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'', where the deuteragonist, Alyx Vance, is Afro-Asian; Alyx's father, Eli, is black. Then there are the Citizens, who can be white, Asian, and black, of which the latter two can be seen quite often, if not just as often as the white models. There is a black character named Matt, an Asian character named Mary, and even an unambiguously Japanese character (Noriko). There are also quite a few Vortigaunts, if they count (they ''are'' voiced by black voice actors).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' has typically portrayed the dominant Hylian race, along with the closely related Sheikah race, as white. Meanwhile, in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', the only dark-skinned folk were the Gerudo, a OneGenderRace of women who rarely ventured out of their desert homeland. Because of this, fans have frequently assumed that any rare dark-skinned Hylians in later games had some Gerudo ancestry. This is averted in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'', where there are quite a few dark-skinned Hylians, particularly those living in Lurelin Village on the sunny southern coast, though they are never as dark-skinned as the darkest Gerudo characters.

* Averted in ''Literature/TheFirstLaw'': The peoples of the powerful Gurkish Empire (realm in the Southern Continent of Kanta) are dark-skinned individuals, one of which includes the major PoV character Ferro Maljinn. The Gurkish practice non-ethnocentric slavery. The city-state of Dagoska (major setting for the second book, Before They Are Hanged) is made-up of dark-skinned individuals who live under an apartheid-like system. Dagoska was a Gurkish domicile until it was annexed by the Union following the First Gurkish War. Superior Sand dan Glokta comments that though the Union did away with slavery, the Dagoskan people are treated like less than animals.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Subtly averted. The Shin, a race from an isolated part of the world, are constantly described as having "wide, childlike eyes." This is because everyone else on the continent has [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epicanthic_fold Asian epicanthic folds,]] so the Shin seem bizarrely wide-eyed to them.

** Similarly, its predecessor [[OgreBattle Tactics Ogre]] had exactly one black character, the Dark Knight Andoras.

* VideoGame/Starcraft}}'': most of the human character are white, with a handful of exceptions, one of whom [[spoiler:is a shapeshifting alien horror whose ''second'' identity has light skin.]] Things aren't much better gameplay-wise: only one unit in each game is nonwhite. In the first game, he's your basic worker. It's ''possible'' this is because every human in the Koprulu Sector is descended from a couple thousand people sent there on colony ships, but when a fleet from Earth comes calling, most of ''them'' are white too [[spoiler:except for the aforementioned alien shapeshifter]].
