** For instance, the Russian word "cherniy" (which means "black"), when used to describe a person, actually refers to black-haired people, especially Caucasians (who, while somewhat tan, are still, well, [[ShapedLikeItself Caucasian]]), rather than Sub-Saharan Africans, who are called ''negry'' (the word "Negro"/"negr", while somewhat rude, is generally considered to be socially acceptable in Russia), if one wishes to sound more politically correct, ''afrikantsy'' ("Africans"). "Light" or "fair" too usually mean "blonde" rather than "white" in Russian.

* While black hair is not unique to them, the Darcen SpaceJews of ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'' all share it and are most commonly identified by that (given the games simple manga style).

* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' features Hylians as the equivalent of normal humans, and they have the variety of hair, eye, and skin colors you would expect. The Sheikah and the Gerudo are also humanlike, but they are distinguished from Hylians by having [[MysticalWhiteHair white hair]] and [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]] for the Sheikah and [[DarkSkinnedRedhead red hair]] and [[YellowEyesOfSneakiness yellow eyes]] for the Gerudo (though ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'' introduced a bit more variety for both).

* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'': The students in the Drama Club are marked by their purple hair.



* ''WebComic/StarPower'': As seen before, the Evebians have green hair, and, as [[http://www.starpowercomic.com/comic/strong-opinion seen here]], they're called "grassheads" by the purple-haired people they're trying to exterminate.

* Plays into the history of the Kymeran WitchSpecies in Nancy A. Collins's UrbanFantasy trilogy ''Golgotham'': Before [[{{Atlantis}} Kymera]] sank into the ocean, their hair was exclusively in [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair primary colors]] and rigidly coded to [[FantasticCasteSystem caste]]: blue for aristocrats, yellow for artisans, and red for peons. While the RacialRemnant who survived the crisis intermarried out of necessity (adding secondary colors to the range of possibilities), traditionalists still tend to hold [[FantasticRacism some degree of bias]] against anyone with warm-toned hair[[spoiler:, (although even most of ''them'' only consider it all that important that the heir to the throne have SupernaturalGoldEyes)]]. The only mentions made of Kymeran skin tones are in reference to specific individuals; therefore, it's probably safe to say that the same variations (or lack thereof) exist among all three castes and their descendants.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrolls'', Bretons and Imperials are two apparently completely separate races that both look like white humans. However, it also subverts this trope with the existence of Redguards.

* Long-after-the-fact depictions of the Saxons and the Normans after the conquest make the Saxons blond and the Normans dark-haired. RobinHood is typically blond, when Maid Marian is a Norman, as in ''Film/TheAdventuresOfRobinHood'', she is dark-haired.
