** Makoto has auburn hair.
** Chibi-Usa has pink hair. Her mother is blonde, her father has black hair. Not only does she have an odd hair colour, ''but neither of her parents share her hair colour.'' What ''has'' Sailor Moon been up to?

hair. It specifically gets noted as unusual and makes people worry that she's a JapaneseDelinquent.
** Chibi-Usa has pink hair. Her mother is blonde, her father has black hair. Not only does she have an odd hair colour, ''but neither of her parents share her hair colour.'' What ''has'' Sailor Moon been up to?to? WordOfGod is that her design is supposed to invoke an albino rabbit's. Likewise, in one of the earliest [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] designs, Usagi was going to have pink hair herself. Though that decision was scrapped, Chibi-Usa's pink hair remained. Usagi's mother is pink-haired in the manga, so it could be a recessive trait

* Hinata from ''Manga/{{Haikyuu}}'' has bright red hair and stands out amongst the predominantly brunette and raven haired cast. Unlike other characters in the series his hair seems natural as his little sister has the same tone.

* Everyone in ''Manga/{{Life}}'' has black hair except for Hatori and Manami, who are blondes. This is never explained but considering that Hatori is a [[JapaneseDelinquents delinquent]] and Manami is a fashionable popular girl they robably bleached their hair. The LiveActionAdaptation [[AdaptationDyeJob darkens their hair]].

* In ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', Queen Elsa has platinum blonde hair, but her sister Princess Anna and her father Agdar have strawberry blonde hair and her mother Idun is a brunette. Justified since Elsa's hair color is presumably the result of her [[AnIcePerson having ice powers]].

*** Isn't Izumi implied to be at least partially Italian? Presumably one of her parents are from Italy and moved there after Izumi was born.

* ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}!'' has all but ''one'' character that keeps it away from probable hair colors (very few have black hair, but most of the cast is either American or European) -- Sylvie Lumiere. She's mentioned to be silver-haired [[AllThereInTheManual in the books too]], so we can't even claim that she's a stylized blond.

** Usagi herself counts for this, since her earth parents have black hair and blue hair, yet she and her brother are blonds.

** White hair unrelated to aging: Gin, [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] with his name, meaning silver. [[AnIcePerson Hitsugaya's]] indicates his elemental powers. Isane and Kensei have silver hair. Ukitake's natural brown hair [[DiseaseBleach turned white due to illness]] in early childhood. In the manga, Ryuuken had white hair even as a child. The anime gives him dark brown hair in flashback, creating a different kind of implausibility (since it implies his hair went completely white in less than 7 years).

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3505392/7/Hell-is-a-Martial-Artist Hell is a Martial Artist]]'' Ranma wonders how both [[Anime/SailorMoon Usagi and Minako]] are natural blondes despite clearly being Japanese; though he does admit he doesn't have room to talk given he's a redhead as a girl.

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', there are three redheads running around: Benmaru, Kamanosuke and Hanzo. Not exactly the most common hair colour in 16th century Japan.
