* ''LightNovel/OnlySenseOnline'': In the titular MMORPG where [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair fantastic hair colors]] are the norm, Yun's long black hair contrasts very well with [[CrossPlayer "her"]] pale skin, accentuating [[AttractiveBentGender "her"]] already beautiful appearance, which is described as "so pretty that any man who's into big boobs would say 'this is a special case', in his heart".

Dark hair and pale skin as an indication that a character is beautiful. In western culture, this is a [[CyclicTrope once-dead, now reviving trope,]] thanks to the {{Goth}} and Retro movements bringing an increased awareness of this and the 1950's pin-up style regaining popularity. In addition, the current vampire fad and the rising fear of skin cancer have helped with the resurgence of this trope. It has started to fade away again with the [[DarkSkinnedBlond tanned and bleached look making a comeback.]] This is also quite popular in Eastern media, being the traditional standard of Asian beauty, and the fact that most of the population has black or very dark brown hair helps. The [[{{Chiaroscuro}} high contrast]] also makes for a striking and visually appealing appearance.

There might be crossover between this look and EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette, in the form of attractive goths, [[VampiresAreSexGods beautiful vampires,]] and other characters who manage to be both creepy and beautiful. Sometimes this look can be seen as too ''eerie,'' and emphasised as ButNotTooWhite. May overlap with TallDarkAndHandsome if male.

If the heroine of a European fairy tale ''doesn't'' have [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold golden hair]] to emphasize her innocence, she will probably have gorgeous black hair and pale skin to emphasize her beauty. Commonly a requirement for the YamatoNadeshiko type and is also known as the Yamato Nadeshiko look. In fact, a Raven Haired, Ivory Skinned YamatoNadeshiko is a stock character for the HaremGenre.

%%* Devi from Main/IFeelSick is one when she's not being YouGottaHaveBlueHair.
* ComicBook/{{X 23}} is most commonly drawn with fair skin and black hair (particularly during her solo series). When Miss Sinister/Claudine Renko decides to [[GrandTheftMe steal her body]] because of its HealingFactor, she expresses satisfaction that she'll also be getting a ''very'' attractive new body as an added bonus. Later on while masquerading as a waitress to get close to an agent of Malcolm Colcord, one of the other employees at the diner comments on how hot the "new girl" is.
%%* Klara Prast of the ''{{Runaways}}'' became this in the series' third volume, despite having a more normal complexion in her earlier appearances.
