* {{Website/Neopets}} changed the Altador Cup team colours of Faerieland from pink and purple to green and purple/pink to symbolise the land's landing (it was airborne previously), but also to make it less of a "target group 5-year-girls" team.

* PlayedWith on ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. On the one hand, pink is repeatedly used for [[PosthumousCharacter Rose Quartz]], the title characters' MissingMom--she had [[ColorCodedWizardry pink magic]], [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation pink skin]] [[RoseHairedSweetie and hair]], and her [[HeartDrive gem]] was, of course, a pink rose quartz. On the other hand, [[KidHero Steven]] himself inherited that gem, so he has a collection of pink powers despite being TheOneGuy of [[OneGenderRace the whole Gem species]]. [[InTouchWithHisFeminineSide He doesn't seem to mind]]. Steven does have a number of stereotypically feminine qualities but isn't overtly effeminate.
