* ''UltraManiac'' has a few people with blonde hair. Nina is justified because [[ItWasHisSled she's a witch]], but on normal people, it's a bit jarring.

Usually, this is at least a little [[JustifiedTrope justified]]. The character might have foreign parents, or dye their hair, or something more interesting (like [[RobotHair being a robot]]). Other times, the reasons are left to the viewer's imaginations.

* ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' is full of examples, especially for a cast that's (supposedly) pure-bred Japanese.

* ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'': For all its wackiness, is actually pretty good about hair colors. Most of the cast either has brown or black hair, and those who don't clearly dye their hair (they all have black eye brows). However, there are still a few exceptions in the cast; most notably, Taka's been a white-haired pretty boy since childhood, Agon was light-haired as a child, and Sakuraba's hair ranges from light brown to blonde.

* In Webcomic/KillLaKillAU, we have a six-year old Ragyo's hair, which is blonde. Both of her parents have black hair, however, this is a tad excusable in that Amoridere isn't sure what hair color Ragyo would have had as a child, pre-life fibers, and figured it would have been either black (like [[spoiler:Ryuuko]] and Satsuki's) or blonde ([[spoiler:like Nui's]]). Apparently, blonde hair must be a recessive gene that both of her parents have, seeing that only then one of her daughters have blond hair (then again, [[spoiler:Nui is an artificial human who has some of her mother's genes as a basis]]) and both of her other daughters have black hair. * In ''Fanfic/{{Chlorine Grown Roses}}'', Azusa's hair is half black and half blond. This is explained as being natural because her mom had black hair and her dad had blond hair, but it doesn't make sense because both of her parents are Japanese. Additionally, her friend Akira--who is also Japanese, presumably--is blond, and the tips of Akira's hair are still burnt from a fire she was involved in ten years ago. According to Azusa, "they would be there, for the rest of her life."

** There's also the blonde-haired, blue-eyed woman from the Zashiki Warashi arc, though she gets a shocked reaction out of the innkeeper.

Milligan in Africa
* Creator/SpikeMilligan and his Army mates were astonished in 1943 to visit an Arab village in Tunisia where everybody had bright natural red hair. They nicknamed it ''Bin McDonald''. A cultured officer with an {{Oxbridge}} education pointed out that the Romans, the Visigoths and the Normans had all been this way and all were European peoples, especially the Scandinavian Normans. Could they be surprised?

* ''{{Soul Eater}}'' has a variety of hair colours ranging from the implausible to the [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair impossible]]. An example of the former would be Maka's hair, in that her mother is suggested to be Japanese and her father has bright red hair (worth noting that the other Japanese women do have black hair). Maka's own hair is more a light brown or blonde.

* Kwashiorkor (a form of sever malnutrition) can cause one's hair to turn red. The effect is especially jarring in ethnic populations that usually have brown or black hair, such as sub-Saharan Africans.
