* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyCrystalChroniclesCrystalBearers'', about half of the members of the Selkie tribe, including all four major characters from that tribe, have red hair. Most of the other Selkies have blond hair. No non-Selkie with red hair exists in the game, so red hair is pretty much a "red flag" alerting you that a character is a Selkie. Blond hair, however, leaves an individual's tribe ambiguous; the protagonist has blond hair and is not a Selkie.

Yellow had it so that each town was the color of its name (as all of the towns were named after colors). This also happened to the black-and-white Red and Blue, but only when played on the SuperGameBoy and Pokemon Stadium; on colorized handhelds, the entire game was made either red or blue, depending on the version.

* AaronAllston's ''DocSidhe'' has three divisions of [[OurElvesAreDifferent people]] on the Fair World: light (blond whites), dark (dark-haired whites), and dusky (blacks, Asians, Native Americans, etc.). That's right; the difference in hair color among whites is considered more significant than the differences in skin color among the duskies.

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' members of the disbanded Uzumaki clan are said to have red hair, including Naruto's mother Kushina, Nagato and Karin, who was revealed to be an Uzumaki due to this. Naruto is the only known Uzumaki with blond hair and blue eyes, which he inherited from his father, Minato Namikaze.[[spoiler:His own son Boruto is also blond. His daughter Himawari takes after her mother Hinata who has blue hair.]]

** In ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', the Riders of Rohan from the North tend to be blond, while the people of Gondor were chiefly dark-haired. However Tolkein reverses the typical associations, with the blond-haired Rohirrim being "lesser men" compared to the dark-haired Númenóreans. This may have something to do with analogies to antiquity, with the darker-haired Romans having a superior civilization to the blond-haired Germanics.

** In ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', the Riders of Rohan from the North tend to be blond, while the people of Gondor were chiefly dark-haired. Given the hierarchy he describes, this peculiarly puts blondness at the top and the bottom, among the good peoples at least (the blond Vanyarin Elves are almost sickeningly angelic, while the Rohirrim are supposedly lesser) and dark-haired peoples in the middle (the Noldor are troubled and rebellious, but still Elves and therefore more awesome than any human, while the Númenóreans of Gondor and Arnor are "superior"--whatever that means--to the Rohirrim). *** In this case, "superior" means "being friends with the [[OurElvesAreDifferent Elves]]". Benefits included long lifespan and some ability to do things we'd call magic. **** ''TheSilmarillion'' and Appendices explains that the Númenóreans are actually descendents of elves, which is the reason for their lifespan and so on and why their color is more like elven, whereas the Rohirrim are a later wave of humans that came after the majority of the Elves left Middle-Earth.

unfortunate implications need citations
* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrolls'', Bretons and Imperials are two apparently completely separate races that both look like white humans. However, it also subverts this trope (and runs headlong into UnfortunateImplications) with the existence of Redguards.

Added DiffLines:
* [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] in ''{{Webcomic/Drowtales}}'' where almost all drow have naturally [[MysticalWhiteHair white hair]] that they frequently dye in their clan colors, making this an InvokedTrope, but played straighter with their ancestors the Dark Elves, who often showed clear patterns among the different regions in terms of natural hair color. Purple seems to be most common among those from [[TheHighQueen Sharess' original kingdom]], blue for the Sullisin, black for the Phariastans and blue-green for those from Zharbi, who became the Sharen, Sullisin'rune, Beldrobbaen/Balvhakara and Illhar'dro respectively once they moved to the underworld.
