* Subverted in ''Film/MoonOverParador'', where the small nation's history of being dominated by various foreign powers has led to a dictator named Alphonse Simms and his secret police chief Roberto Strausman (RaulJulia in pale makeup and a blonde wig). TruthInTelevision for many Latin American countries.

** ''Film/{{Logan}}'' defies this trope. The mutant ChildSoldiers have Mexican mothers of unknown ethnicities and bear DNA from mutants that lived all over the world. Their skin tones range everywhere between pale and dark.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/ElTigreTheAdventuresOfMannyRivera'', this is played straight with a good number of characters, including the entire Rivera family, but there are also numerous aversions, such as the yellow-skinned Frida.


Added DiffLines:

* Some viewers of ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger'' thought [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/astoldbyginger/images/b/b0/Mipsy_Mipson8.png/revision/latest?cb=20140217001014 Mipsy]] was Latina due to her fitting the trope's requirements. She even used to be down as Latina on ThisVeryWiki. But she makes a comment about a Bat Mizvah, implying that she's Jewish. Of course her being Jewish does not preclude her being Latina, there being hundreds of thousands of Jewish Latin@s, but [[RealityIsUnrealistic how many writers know this?]] and even if the ''writers'' know it, [[ViewersAreIdiots do they believe the audience knows that]]?

* While still blonde, Elsa Pataky (Spanish actress of Romanian-Hungarian descent on her mother's side) is more tanned and has her hair darker than usual in her first Hollywood role, the passenger Maria in ''Film/SnakesOnAPlane''. This is completely avoided in her later role as Brazilian police officer Elena Neves in the ''TheFastAndTheFurious'' franchise.

Added DiffLines:

* Averted in ''Film/StarshipTroopers'', in which Rico is lily-white despite being from Argentina. Contrary to what many reviewers have questioned, this is actually quite accurate, as most Argentines are descended from European settlers and look much more "white" than other Latinos.
