* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' and her two aunts are all blonde haired. Oddly enough her father (their brother) is brunette and the third Aunt Vesta is redhead. It's parodied in one episode where a potion turns Salem's fur blonde.

* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' and her two aunts are all blonde haired.haired (this trope is abverted in [[ComicBook/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch the comics]] as Sabrina is traditionally a platinum blonde while her aunts have green hair and red hair). Oddly enough her father (their brother) is brunette and the third Aunt Vesta is redhead. It's parodied in one episode where a potion turns Salem's fur blonde.

* Starting with the Diva Search competitions, most of the non-blondes were from other races (with the exception of [[FieryRedhead Christy Hemme]] who is actually a natural blonde). It's pretty rare in WWE for there to be a Caucasian brunette. They've even started favouring DarkSkinnedBlonde girls as well since black Wrestling/AliciaFox and mixed race Wrestling/{{Layla}} temporarily went blonde and Latina Wrestling/EvaMarie was asked to dye her hair blonde (but opted to red haired instead).

Any combination of the [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold sweet]], [[BlondesAreEvil malicious]], or {{dumb|Blonde}} blondes becomes Plenty of Blondes because you can't contrast something with itself. Each can be EveryoneLovesBlondes. Compare MonochromeCasting if it's one race in what should be a melting pot population, and PhenotypeStereotype when non-Caucasian media believes this is true of Caucasians. This may be justified if some of them explicitly [[DyeHard dye their hair]]. May or may not be involved in {{Mukokuseki}} works.

* In ''Literature/FlowersInTheAttic'' all of the Dollangangers have flaxen-blonde hair and they're our five main characters. The only character who doesn't have blonde hair is revealed to be wearing a grey-haired wig (though [[AdaptationDyeJob the movie gives her red hair]]). In this case it's something of a plot point since the two parents [[spoiler: are actually brother and sister]]. To be more precise, Christopher Dollanganger, the father of the four Dollanganger children, is [[spoiler:the child of Malcolm Foxworth (the grandfather in ''FlowersInTheAttic'') who raped Alicia Foxworth, his young stepmother]], while Corinne Dollanganger, the children's mother, is [[spoiler:also the child of Malcolm and Alicia]]. However, the two grow up believing that Christopher is [[spoiler:the son of Garland Foxworth, Malcolm's father, and therefore Malcolm's half-brother]] while Corinne is [[spoiler:the daughter of Malcolm and Olivia Foxworth]], making [[spoiler:Christopher half-uncle to Corinne]], rather than them being [[spoiler:full brother and sister]].

Where characters with fair hair can be seen more frequently than expected for what should be a melting pot population. Specifically, you can see a disproportionate number of blondes for the setting when a show has no fewer than half of the female Caucasian cast being blonde. It can include the whole Caucasian cast - and sometimes [[DarkSkinnedBlond more than that]], too. Similar to BlondeBrunetteRedhead, but on the other end of the scale. The thing is that film casters believe the audience finds blond hair to be beautiful, so if you want to be a movie star, it helps to look good with fair hair. It doesn't help that natural blonde tends to be darker with streaks of brown, whereas these ladies will have heads full of golden yellow hair that clearly came out of a bottle. This situation can be perfectly justifiable - a family drama where most family members have blonde hair - but usually is not.

* Plenty of characters in ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' that aren't of Asian or African descent are blond - justified as most of the characters are European. This is actually in keeping with both [[http://strangemaps.files.wordpress.com/2007/12/blond_hair_map1.jpg actual percentages of blond hair in Europe]] and national stereotypes - the Nordics, for example, are all blond.
* The Claymores, an elite group of super humans from the ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' all of them are blondes, due the fact that their demon infused powers give them that coloration and IcyBlueEyes. [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg Also]], [[BadassNormal Raki]].
* The Kalos-era main cast of {{Anime/Pokemon}} features three blond characters, making Ash the only person in his group who isn't blond.
