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

* Practically all the main characters of ''MajinTanteiNougamiNeuro'' have blond or silver hair, although in many (but not all cases), this is to show either that character has criminal connections (dyed blond hair is common in Japanese street gangs) or is not human.

* Qiu Tong from ''Webcomic/TheirStory'' stands out as the only blond amongst a cast of brown and black haired characters. According to flashbacks it it is likely natural, unless she began bleaching it at a young age.

* ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', the redheaded ronin from 19th century Japan. Though redheads ''are'' known to exist naturally in Japan, they're still incredibly rare.
** This is lampshaded in the first episode where one of the characters identifies Kenshin as the Battosai because of his red hair and the scar on his cheek.

* Everyone in ''Manga/{{Life}}'' have 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]].

* Violet Parr from ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' has long raven black hair while both her father and younger brother have blonde hair and her mother has auburn hair. Because dark genes are dominant she should have had brown hair at the darkest. However, considering her gloomy personality, it is possible that she wanted to dye it black.
** The Parrs/Incredibles have hereditary superpowers. It's possible that genetics aren't quite the same for them, and Violet's hair is natural.

* 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]].

* ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' would fit into plausible hair, except that one of ThoseTwoGuys is blond. Aside from him, all characters in either have black hair or are goddesses or, in a few cases, both. Considering that one guy is the one human who has blond hair, it's pretty close to actual Japanese demographics. (He's also a leather-and-shades-wearing punk biker with spark plugs for earrings; it's likely that he bleaches it -- see the notes for ''Midori no Hibi'' below.)

* ''Manga/MidoriNoHibi'' has plausible brown or black for all characters except the leads, blond Seiji and greenheaded Midori. However, Seiji having brown hair in flashbacks implies that he dyes it, leaving Midori the only character with an impossible hair colour. Her real body has hair a darker shade of green. (By the way, the Japanese word for green is "[[MeaningfulName midori]]".) Seiji may be a [[http://www.cracked.com/article_18567_6-japanese-subcultures-that-are-insane-even-japan_p2.html yankii]]. Anyway, in many anime, having blond hair for a male japanese character would be a short cut to saying "This guy here is a delinquent!"
