Just like [[ShyBlueHairedGirl blue-haired girls are often introverted]], pink-haired girls are often [[ThePollyanna cheery and optimistic]], [[FieryRedhead strong and passionate]], or [[MarryForLove sweet and romantic]]. There's a high chance that, if a series has a FiveManBand, a girl with pink hair is TheChick. It's also a popular hair color for protagonists of MagicalGirl series.

Bonus points if she has a [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue-haired]] [[PinkGirlBlueBoy love interest]].

This trope doesn't count ''just'' for general pink hair. Other shades like magenta or salmon also count, but purple certainly does ''not''. Pink-haired ''boys'' can also be examples.

SubTrope of YouGottaHaveBlueHair and PinkMeansFeminine. For animals with pink fur, go see AmazingTechnicolorWildlife.

Sometimes in anime it can overlap with BitchInSheepsClothing. The pink-haired girl being designated as a YamatoNadeshiko may be a DeadUnicornTrope.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
%%* Pictured above: Akari Mizunashi from ''Manga/{{ARIA}}''.
* Lacus Clyne from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED''. For partial bonus points, Lacus was engaged to the blue-haired Athrun Zala, though it didn't last.
** As well as her BodyDouble, Meer Campbell, in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny''. She was a brunette (the colour they used actually seems to be some sort of dark grey]]) before she was altered to look like Lacus.
%%** Lunamaria Hawke ''Gundam SEED Destiny'' has magenta hair.
%%** Feldt Grace from ''{{Gundam 00}}''. WordOfGod claims she dyes it.
%%** Sarah Zabiarov of ''ZetaGundam''... Noticing a theme?
%%** Lu Anon from ''GundamAGE''.
* Haman Karn of ''Zeta'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamzz Double Zeta]]'' has pink hair, but is only cheerful and optimistic as a young girl in the ''Char's Deleted Affair'' manga set after the One Year War.
%%* [[MeaningfulName Rose]] from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', though it's actually just her bangs. The rest of her hair is dark brown.
%%* Kotoko-01 from ''DivergenceEve''.
* ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' has all 3 (naturally they are sisters). [[GenkiGirl Lala]] is cheerful and optimistic, [[{{Tsundere}} Nana]] is the FieryRedHead and [[LoveableSexManiac Momo]] is the [[SingleTargetSexuality sweet and romantic one]] (although her idea of romantic is rather [[HaremSeeker broad]]).
* [[ArtificialHuman Cheza]] from ''WolfsRain'' is the sweet, low-key romantic subtype. For bonus points, the guy who created her has blue hair, [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl not to mention]] the more tomboyish ActionGirl Blue.
* Sakura Haruno from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', and she has hair-related ThemeNaming. It's apparently ''natural'', unless she's going through the trouble of dying her ''eyebrows''. She's also in love with [[PinkGirlBlueBoy Sasuke]], although her feelings are unreciprocated.
* The titular character of ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' - at least, in the anime version. The manga version was originally a blonde. Later colored art for the manga would follow suit.
** We can probably thank Executive Meddling for this example. Chiho Saito originally had all the characters with "normal" hair colors, with Utena being more of an orangish blonde with a pink outfit, which was pointed out in the first chapter of the manga. However, when the series was developed for television, the director decided against the original pink outfit. As a compromise, Utena's outfit was changed to black, with her hair color changed to pink.
** Souji Mikage, too, but [[ManipulativeBastard he's not exactly a hero]]...
* Ichigo Momomiya from ''TokyoMewMew'' has this in the manga. In the anime, only Mew Ichigo has pink hair, whereas her civilian form has red hair.
** And in the manga, her love interest has blue hair.
* Nozomi Yumehara/Cure Dream from ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5'' in both forms.
** Queen Flora from ''[[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo]]'' also sports the "pink hair and yellow eyes" combination.
** Even if she's not a Cure, Miyuki Chinen from ''Anime/FreshPrettyCure'' is definitely an example of this, matched with gold eyes. Cure Passion from the same continuity also has pink hair, which led some people to believe that she was Miyuki until the truth about her identity was revealed. Cure Passion is a former villain, and she's still more introverted than her teammates.
** Similarly, Tsubomi Hanasaki from ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'' has this, but like Ichigo above, it's only when she transforms into Cure Blossom.
** Cure Melody from ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure''.
** Miyuki Hoshizora/Cure Happy from ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure''. She got this from her AbsurdlyYouthfulMother Ikuyo.
** Mana Aida from ''Anime/DokiDokiPrecure'' -- though, oddly, ''not'' her Cure Heart alter ego.
*** [[spoiler:Mana's bunny MentorMascot Charle can transform into a teenage girl around Mana's age and has [[CurtainsMatchTheWindow pink hair and pink eyes]].]]
* Chibiusa in ''Manga/SailorMoon'', which is actually [[LampshadeHanging pointed out]] by some of her new classmates in one of the manga side stories (and the anime special based on it).
** Similarly, in several manga illustrations, her mother Usagi was shown with light pink hair. However, this tends to stay confined to artbooks, since Usagi has blonde or silver hair in the manga proper.
** Ikuko Tsukino's hair was colored magenta in one of Naoko Takeuchi's illustrations; however, her other colored appearances show her with blue-violet hair (which the anime used).
** Also, in the beginning of the manga, Sailor Jupiter has rose-colored hair to match her rose earrings.
** Ann/Ann/An/En in 'Sailor Moon R' didn't really fit it all that well, but she DOES have a blue-haired love interest and the 'Bitch in Sheep's Clothing' also somewhat applies.
* Amu Hinamori from ''ShugoChara''. However, unlike other examples of this trope, her initial personality was somewhat introverted. One of her Charas, Ran, also has this.
** Bonus points for her, because [[TroubledButCute Ikuto]], one of Amu's love intrests, has [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue]] [[PinkGirlBlueBoy hair]]. [[spoiler: triple pointer for him being her (manga canon) choice.]]
* MagicalPrincessMinkyMomo is a CuteWitch with pink hair.
%%* Princess Silver from ''CrayonKingdomOfDreams''
%%* The titular character of ''Anime/ALittleSnowFairySugar''.
%%* Mao from ''Anime/MaoChan''.
* Himeno Awayuki in ''{{Pretear}}'', the cheerful and optimistic heroine. Also a type B {{Tsundere}} to Hayate, the aloof blue haired knight.
* Momoko from ''Manga/WeddingPeach'', one of the most upbeat characters and also the heroine.
* Doremi and Pop Harukaze from ''OjamajoDoremi''.
* The ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' series plays this absolutely straight with Caro Ru Lushe, yet inverts it to hell and back with Signum, who is probably the most {{stoic}} character in the entire franchise so far.
** Then there is Sette, one of the twelve [[{{Cyborg}} Combat Cyborgs]]. She is an EmotionlessGirl, in fact, she has the least emotions among the sisters.
* Madoka Kaname from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', showcasing her innocent nature.
* Subaru from ''HoukagoNoPleiades''.
* Hinagiku Katsura from ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler''.
** Amusingly enough, she fits ''all three'' of the types, ''and'' she has a blue-haired (clueless) love interest.
* Louise from ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero''. Then again, her hair color is described as "strawberry blonde" in the novels, and this is a real hair color. It's just that the manga and anime producers apparently don't know what "strawberry blonde" looks like.
* Miyuki Takara and her mother in ''LuckyStar''.
** Also Akira Kogami, who can ''act'' cheery until something angers her, at which point, it doesn't take a whole lot for the fiery aspect of her personality to surface.
* [[InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals Every Nurse Joy ever]] in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''.
** And [[GenkiGirl Whitney]]
* The most popular interpretation of Mimi Tachikawa in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' dyed her hair pink with small yellow stars. It was originally brown ([[HairColorDissonance or red, depending on who you ask]]).
%%* Nagisa in ''RaveMaster''.
* Kim Diehl in ''Manga/SoulEater''. There's also Crona, whose hair [[AdaptationDyeJob was pink in the manga]] but was changed to lavender in the anime, but [[AmbiguousGender s/he's]] more of a ShrinkingViolet or [[ShyBlueHairedGirl Shy Blue-haired Person of Indeterminate Gender]].
* Sora Naegino in ''KaleidoStar'' has magenta hair, which stands out because even the other native Japanese who visit her have realistic hair colors.
* Moka Akashiya's outer self in ''RosarioToVampire''.
** The actual dialogue in the manga says she has brown hair and her inner self has silver hair, [[HairColorDissonance but good luck finding ''any'' official artwork with brown hair]]. Its likely that the "brown hair" was printed by accident, either due to a translation error or something of the like.
* Trish Una, the [[TheSmurfettePrinciple token chick]] from Part 5 of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''.
* Shiho and Fumi from ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'' and ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome}}'', and Mayo from ''LightNovel/{{Mai-HiME Destiny}}''.
* Princess Euphemia li Britannia and Anya Alstreim from ''Anime/CodeGeass''. Euphy's personality fits with what's expected for this trope, being a WideEyedIdealist in a series known for its BlackAndGrayMorality. Conversely, Anya is an EmotionlessGirl...[[BreakTheCutie although she wasn't always like that.]]
%%* Mao/Mariah from ''{{Beyblade}}''.
%%* Miwako from ''ParadiseKiss'', fittingly enough.
%%* Haramura Nodoka from ''Manga/{{Saki}}' '.
%%* Ringo Yukimori from ''HimeChenOtogiChikkuIdolLilpri''. Oddly enough, she is the reincarnation of Snow White, and the most well-known versions of Snow White all have black hair.
%%* The titular PrincessComet has pink hair.
%%* Hikaru from ''HyperSpeedGranDoll''.
%%* Wilhelmina Carmel from ''ShakuganNoShana''.
%%* Noriko Nakajima from ''HellTeacherNube''.
%%* Miharu Sena Kanaka from ''Manga/GirlsBravo''.
* A more [[FieryRedhead fiery]] GenderFlip occurs with [[IdiotHero Natsu Dragonil]] from ''Manga/FairyTail''. Because [[RealMenWearPink real men have pink hair]].
** Sherry, bonus points for her love interest, who has light-blue Hair. [[spoiler:However, she's engaged to Ren after the time skip, cancelling out Lyon as a love interest.]]
** There's also the docile and kind [[SummonMagic Stellar Spirits]] Virgo and Aries, and, oddly enough, the crabby old healer, Porlyusica.
** Don't forget Meredy and Chelia! Both are cute little girls [[spoiler:though Meredy has aged after the time skip.]].
%%* The titular character of ''SteelAngelKurumi''.
* One of the rare villainous versions -- Chuutatsu Shibai from IkkiTousen ''Dragon Destiny''.
%%* Washu Hakubi from ''TenchiMuyo'', though it varies from light pink to dark pink to red, depending on the official artwork.
%%** A male example would be Seiryo Tennan from ''Tenchi'' OAV 2 and ''TenchiMuyoGXP.''
%%* Kanon Nakagawa from ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows''.
* Yui from ''Anime/AngelBeats''. And for [[RunningGag bonus points]], Hinata has blue hair.
* [[PluckyComicRelief Kiko]] from ''DarkerThanBlack'' certainly fits the GenkiGirl stereotype. However, considering that most of the cast have realistic hair colors and she's a CosplayOtakuGirl, it's quite possible she dyed it.
* [[http://nebs66.livejournal.com/1148645.html Akane Miura]], an OriginalCharacter made for ''[[Manga/KOn K-On!]]''; her hair was one of the clear indications that she was fanmade, as the show itself pretty much averts YouGottaHaveBlueHair. She's still quite popular, though.
* Kujira Etorofu from ''PenguinMusume'', who was [[WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent raised under the impression]] that she is a boy. [[SarcasmMode Because pink-haired boys are so commonplace.]]
%%* Pink-haired boy: Shuichi from ''{{Gravitation}}''.
%%* Another male example: Shun from ''HereIsGreenwood''.
* Mizuki Himeji from ''LightNovel/BakaToTestToShoukanjuu''. Pretty, nice and a mishmash of [[{{Yandere}} wacko]].
* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'': Genkai, at least, [[IWasQuiteALooker in her younger days]], is an example of the "fiery" sort. It grayed over time, though. However, [[AdaptationDyeJob in the manga]], her hair was strawberry-blonde.
* ''Manga/HunterXHunter'': Machi is a {{Kunoichi}} and a member of the murderous thief-band, Genei Ryodan. She's [[TheStoic stoic]], cold, ruthless, [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]], delivers {{Death Glare}}s, and she's deadly as any other member. She also happens to be the CombatMedic. However, Machi has only pink hair in the manga and in the 2011 anime version, while in the 1999 version she has [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair purple hair]].
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Pink-haired, hyperactive, Yachiru is the cheerful and optimistic version, always smiling, especially when Kenpachi is enjoying his fights.
* Milfeulle Sakuraba from ''Anime/GalaxyAngel''. And Takuto, as Milfeulle is the canon heroine, has black or blue hair, depending on which picture/scene you're looking at and on who's making the judgement.
%%* Anemone from ''Anime/EurekaSeven''.
%%** Elena Peoples from ''Anime/EurekaSevenAO''.
* [[JungleWaItsumoHaleNochiGuu Guu]] brilliantly subverts this. Her moe side plays this straight, but her "evil" side is very unlike this trope.
* Beauty, the heroine and MoralityPet to the title character in ''Manga/BoboboboBobobo''.
** And later on, [[spoiler:after TheReveal that his fecal matter-shaped "head" is actually a mask, it's shown that [[AloofBigBrother Softon]]'s hair is a darker shade of pink. He's also Beauty's older brother.]]
%%* Yuna Miyama from ''{{Maburaho}}''.
* [[FieryRedhead Strong and passionate]] - that definitely describes Haruko Haruhara from ''{{FLCL}}''.
* From ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', Makie Sasaki and the Narutaki twins have all been depicted with either pink or red hair. The first anime switches them all from pink to red hair about halfway through. They also all fit the "cheery girl" stereotype.
%%* Kuniko Hojo from ''LightNovel/ShangriLa''
* Rebecca Miyamoto from ''PaniPoniDash'' is a quasi-example; her hair is somehow [[MulticoloredHair both blonde and pink]].
* Caldina and Nova from ''MagicKnightRayearth''. [[GenkiGirl Hikaru's]] hair in the manga illustrations are more of a pinkish color as well (in the anime, it's [[RedHeadedHeroine red]]).
* Darry from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''.
* Coby from ''OnePiece''. However, he is a rare male ShrinkingViolet, and in direct contrast to the usual Pink-Haired teenager, he often has a nervous outlook on life - even after taking a small [[TookaLevelinBadass level in Badass]].
%%* Viola from ''Anime/KiddyGrade''.
%%* Ascoeur from ''Anime/KiddyGirlAnd''.
* Another of the rare rose-haired guys is Sanetoshi Watase from ''Anime/MawaruPenguindrum'', apparently an {{expy}} of the aforementioned [[RevolutionaryGirlUtena Souji Mikage]].
** Meanwhile, Momoka [[spoiler: Oginome]] and Hibari Isada are the local rose haired girls.
* Nono of {{Diebuster}} has long pink hair and is optimistic, cheerful, strong, and passionate.
* Cosette, Ropponmatsu II (partially), and Excel's good conscience in ''Anime/ExcelSaga''.
%%* The titular character of ''PuniPuniPoemi''.
* Toa from ''DragonautTheResonance'' with CurtainsMatchTheWindow set of pink eyes as well. Akira has hot pink hair.
* Marika from ''LightNovel/BodaciousSpacePirates'' has pink hair with the cheery and optimistic personality.
* The [[MagicalGirl Maigical Woman]] Ureshiko of ''Anime/OkusamaWaMahouShoujo'' has pink hair.
* Inori from ''GuiltyCrown'' has pale pink hair. While she's not at all a GenkiGirl, she does share the "pure" personality shown by many other characters on this page; she's one of the most loyal and caring characters in ''GuiltyCrown'' [[spoiler: and becomes something of a MessianicArchetype in the final episode]]. She also becomes more [[FieryRedhead passionate]] near the end of the show.
* One of the two protagonists of ''Go! Go! Ichigo'' is a [[{{Transsexual}} trans girl]] named [[http://i35.tinypic.com/24v1pp1.jpg Ichigo]] who has pink hair. She's quite bubbly and perky, though not a GenkiGirl.
%%* Komoe Tsukuyomi from ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex''.
%%* Amanda Werner from ''Anime/{{Blassreiter}}''.
%%* The unnamed protagonist of ''JinruiWaSuitaiShimashita''.
%%* Myuu from ''Anime/HagureYuushaNoEstetica''.
* Nagisa Shiratori from [[Anime/ChouKuseNiNarisou Chou Kuse Ni Narisou]] ("I'll make a Habit of it.") Her LoveInterest is even a [[PinkGirlBlueBoy blue-haired Boy.]]
* Yuno Gasai, from MiraiNikki, has some pretty pink hair, but she's definitely not as sweet as some of the [[{{Yandere}} other examples...]]
* Lucy/Nyuu from ''Manga/ElfenLied'', but it has a more reddish tint in the anime whereas the manga has it as bright pink. Either way, the "Nyuu" side of her personality is cheerful (and dumb as a post), while Lucy is very much "strong and passionate" (in a very psychotic way, however). Nana fits as well (though her hair was purple in the manga).
** Every diclonius in the anime version.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Megan Gwynn (Pixie) from ''ComicBook/{{New X-Men}}'' fit the definition for a good while, until Magik (or Magik's demonic clone) got to her. Depending on the artist, her hair's now either mostly black with pink streaks or mostly pink with black streaks, but either way, she was heavily affected by having bits of her soul ripped out and is suffering some serious overall disillusionment with the X-Adults.
* [=SpyGirl=] from ''ComicBook/SpyBoy''. Of course, she is intended to be a spoof of all things anime.
* Devi from ''IFeelSick'' definitely fits 'passionate and strong' and wishes she fit 'romantic'.
* Darla Deering, a.k.a. Miss Thing in ''MarvelNOW'''s FF series.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* Chloe Auriville from ''FanFic/PrettyCurePerfumePreppy'', when transformed into Cure Rosa. Ayameko's friend, Ran Nakayama, also counts.
* Shinju Miwa (Cure Pearl) from ''FanFic/ShiningPrettyCure'', in both forms.
* Sakura Tsuitei from ''FanFic/PrettyCureFullColor''.
* [[spoiler:Cure Dawn]] in ''Fanfic/FutariWaPrettyCureBlueMoon'' has pink hair as well, since she's basically a classic shoujo heroine [[spoiler:(or a grown-up variant)]] set up to contrast the fairly unusual leads, Cure Night and Cure Sunday. Like a lot of the modern examples (Ichigo, Tsubomi, and, yes, Chloe, too), her hair is red as a civilian.
* In the ''Manga/DeathNote'' fic ''FanFic/PointOfSuccession'' Matt is a Rose-Haired ''Boy''-right before Mello was abducted by a SerialKiller [[PracticalJoke he had caused Matt to have a hair dye "accident" dying his hair an embarassing shade of bright pink.]] [[HeroicVow Matt has resolved he's not going to dye it back]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming until they've got Mello back.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* Lava Girl from ''Shark Boy and Lava Girl'' has neon-pink hair that glows when [[PlayingWithFire she activates her powers]].
* Frenchy in the film version of Grease accidentally dyes her hair pink, leading the "Beauty School Dropout" fantasy sequence.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Stan Dominus from ''{{Duumvirate}}'' is a male example, and [[RealMenWearPink he even wears pink clothing]] to match. Aww, isn't he [[{{Tykebomb}} cute]]?
* In the fantasy novel ''Drink Down the Moon'' by Charles De Lint, one of the faerie women living among humans, who is posing as a young punk musician, has natural pink hair. Of course, anyone who sees her (anyone who sees her and due to her glamour is led to think she is human, that is) assumes it's dyed.
* Nymphadora Tonks from the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series can choose whatever hair color she wants as part of her magical ability. Usually, it's bubblegum pink.
* Mei Sheong of ''ParrishPlessis'' has pink hair. It's not natural, but she strongly prefers the color and spends a considerable portion of her meager salary keeping it dyed.
* Mae Crawford from ''TheDemonsLexicon'', although it's dyed. It fits her optimistic personality.
* Literature/TrappedOnDraconica: Daniar is the strong and passionate type.
* Effie Trinket from ''TheHungerGames'', who can be optimistic and effervescent to an almost manic degree. Her wig is pink in the first book (and in her first scenes in the movie), so it's the one she's most associated with, along with the color pink in general.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Stephanie from ''LazyTown''.
* Hex from ''GoodGame'' dyed her hair pink for a while.
* Nadira (Ransik's daughter) from ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce''.
* ''Series/AmericasNextTopModel'' season 18 winner Sophie Summer got this for her makeover.
* From the cast of [[Characters/TheAmazingRace23 Amazing Race 23]], Marie has bright pink highlights halfway down her hair.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music Videos]]
* Luka Megurine and IA of the {{Vocaloid}}s.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Independent circuit female wrestler [=LuFisto=] models her outfits on anime characters, so she sometimes dyed her hair pink.
* As a member of The Hart Dynasty, NatalyaNeidheart's blond hair occasionally has pink tips.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* In the heavily anime-influenced RPG ''Mekton'', Mike Pondsmith's infamous Lifepath character generation system includes a table for hair color, which includes both more staid, real-life hair colors as well as anime hair colors such as green, purple, blue, and, yes, pink.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Nana from ''VideoGame/MegaManXCommandMission''. Granted, she's a [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots reploid]].
* Meiru/Mayl from ''MegaManBattleNetwork'' has magenta hair, as does Sonia in ''MegaManStarForce''.
* Black Rose from ''[[Franchise/DotHack .hack//]]'', Pi from ''VideoGame/DotHackGU'', and Shino (before she changed her character's colors).
* Alisa Bosconovitch from ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} 6'', who is a [[RobotGirl robot]].
* Male example: while Link's hair has historically fluctuated between red, brown, and blond in his various appearances, sprites for ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' showed him as having pink hair. It justifies why Link becomes a [[AmazingTechnicolorWildlife pink-furred rabbit]] in the DarkWorld.
* Maki (Mary) in ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' was given pink/primary-color-red hair in the US version because they thought it would make it seem ''less'' Japanese.
* Yet another male example: Marluxia from the ''KingdomHearts'' series.
** Although he was supposed to be a woman at first; it was changed when the developers realized that, with two women, the plot would be [[UnfortunateImplications accidentally sexist]].
* Lenna in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV''...at least, according to the sprites. Artworks depict her as a blonde.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' has Lightning and her sister, Serah. (It should be noted that Lightning, being a SugarAndIceGirl to the nines, is the total opposite of the typical personality type.)
** Subverted in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'', where Ritz Malheur ''does'' have rose hair, but it was implied that she actually has white hair ([[spoiler:and Ritz changed her hair color to white during the ending]]).
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIVTheAfterYears'', Porom has started dyeing her hair pink.
* ''MitadakeHigh'', being a game which gloriously bases itself on all manners of anime stereotypes, lampshades this by having the aliases of most of the characters being their hair colour; one of them is "The Long Pink Haired Girl".
* In a rare western example. ''[[BaldursGate Baldur's Gate 2]]'' gave [[BlackMagicianGirl Imoen]] a pink hairdo, in contrast to her more normal appearance in the first game. Despite being the only person with such colouration, it's [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight never commented on]], and whether it's meant to be a dye job or [[spoiler:just an early indication of the whole [[HalfHumanHybrid Bhaalspawn]] thing]] is never resolved.
** It's a dye job, her portrait still has brown eyebrows. Also, there are wild magic effects that will turn you random colors, and one that turns the target random colors.
* Althea from ''LuminousArc2'' had light pink hair [[spoiler:before her class change]].
* In ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'', [[spoiler:if you go [[GuideDangIt far enough]] in the Xtransceiver SidequestSidestory as a male player, you discover that the Xtransceiver's owner,]] [[ImpliedLoveInterest Yancy]] has pink hair.
** Pokémon Center nurses, Gym Leaders [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Whitney]] and [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Maylene]] and Elite Four [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Malva]] also have pink hair.
* Some notable examples from the ''TalesSeries'' include:
** Presea Combatir from ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia''. And her sister, [[PosthumousCharacter Alicia]], who dated Regal, who has blue hair.
** Estelle from ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia''. There's also Zagi as a male example, [[PsychoForHire though he's about as far from nice as it gets]].
** [[{{Tsundere}} Arche Klein]] from ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia''.
** [[InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals The three Kanonnos]] from the ''[[TalesOfTheWorld Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology]]'' series, with [[HairDecorations season-appropriate hair decs]] to match.
* [[CuteGhostGirl Yuyuko Saigyouji]] from the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' series, due to her cherry blossom theme and her cheerful and optimistic personality.
** Kasen Ibaraki for the actual [[SomethingAboutARose rose theme]], as well as [[DontFearTheReaper Komachi Onozuka]].
* [[CuteWitch Pamela]] from ''YggdraUnion'' and [[CuteMute Vienya]] from ''KnightsInTheNightmare'', both from the ''VideoGame/DeptHeaven'' series.
* The Standard Branch of the ''TokimekiMemorial'' series (sans the most recent title, ''Tokimeki Memorial 4'') has a good number of Rose-Haired Girls.
** ''Tokimemo 1'' has [[{{Ojou}} Yukari]] [[CloudCuckooLander Koshiki]] and [[GenkiGirl Yuko]] [[TheFashionista Asahina]] (who just happen to be [[OddFriendship best friends]]).
** ''Tokimemo 2'' has the [[TwinSwitch Shirayuki twins]], [[TheIngenue Miho]] and [[GenkiGirl Maho]], as well as EnsembleDarkHorse [[DefrostingIceQueen Kaori]] [[TheWoobie Yae]] (who happened to be a GenkiGirl before the events that made her the BrokenBird she is at the start of the game, [[spoiler: and gradually returns to her former GenkiGirl self after she overcomes her painful past, thanks to the PowerOfLove]]).
** ''Tokimemo 3'' has [[MadScientist Rika Kawai]].
* ''VideoGame/MitsumeteKnight'', the SpiritualSuccessor of ''Tokimeki Memorial'', also has two rose-haired characters : [[TokenMiniMoe Laury]] [[TastesLikeDiabetes Callwell]] and Mieu Cartith.
* Aoi Kanda and Rin Shirosaki of ''OsuTatakaeOuendan 2''.
* Milfeulle Sakuraba from ''VideoGame/GalaxyAngel''. And Takuto Meyers has blue hair, so, bonus points.
* The Dark World version of Elle in ''{{Terranigma}}''. However, her supposedly identical counterpart in the Light World is a redhead.
* Amy Rose from the ''SonicTheHedgehog'' series, who, of course, lusts after a [[OverlyLongGag blue-furred]] hedgehog.
* Shiki Misaki from ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou''. [[spoiler: Well, in Eri's form, at least.]]
* Several characters from the ''HarvestMoon'' series, including Nina, Lillia, Popuri, and Lyla from the series proper, and Lynette, Melody, and (arguably) Lara from ''RuneFactory''.
* Vivian from ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''.
** [[spoiler:Shadow Queen has pink hair, though it's kind of dark or something. [[SealedEvilInACan Although the]] [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Shadow Queen]] [[NightmareFuel most emphatically does]] ''[[UltimateEvil not]]'' [[BiggerBad adhere to the typical personality of the trope...]]]]
* [[LadyOfWar Claves]] from ''EternalSonata''.
* [[ActionGirl Alicia]] from ''RadiataStories''.
* The ''ManaKhemia'' series has several examples. In the first game, there is [[IllGirl Jessica]] [[GenkiGirl Philomele]], a student who carries a [[{{Hammerspace}} purse]] with all kinds of deadly [[StuffBlowingUp chemical explosives]]. The sequel brings us [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Etward]] [[ButtMonkey Deisler]] from ''ManaKhemia2'', an [[MightyGlacier incredibly powerful young girl,]] and quite stacked to match.
* Serra from ''FireEmblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe The Blazing Blade]]'' and Ethlin from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Geneaology of the Holy War]]'' are GenkiGirl examples, while Linoan from ''Thracia 776'' is the docile ProperLady variety.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' has Neimi, whose love interest, Colm, has blue hair.
** Also, Ena and Marcia from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path of Radiance]]''.
** Predating all of the previous FE examples are Est and Feena from "[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Shadow Dragon and Mystery of the Emblem]]".
** Olivia in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Awakening]]'', except she's a ShrinkingViolet.

* Cecania Greensworthington in ''SoreThumbs''. It was eventually revealed that she dyes it.
* Sanaa [[strike:Whilhelm]] [[spoiler:Tryggvassen]] of ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' also has pink hair. Although, given her brother's reaction when seeing her, it might be a dye job (or unnatural in some other way; in this world, there're plenty of options).
** He might have been talking about her haircut; the color extends to her eyebrows, so it's most likely natural. Besides, [[spoiler:Othar]] is white haired, so odd hair colors may not be anything unusual for that family in the first place.
*** Light-colored hair tends to take dye well (unlike dark hair, which has to be bleached first and ''then'' dyed). It's possible they all have white or blonde hair, and Sanaa just added the pink.

Just like [[ShyBlueHairedGirl blue-haired girls are often introverted]], pink-haired girls are often [[ThePollyanna cheery and optimistic]], [[FieryRedhead strong and passionate]], or [[MarryForLove sweet and romantic]]. There's a high chance that, if a series has a FiveManBand, a girl with pink hair is TheChick. It's also a popular hair color for protagonists of MagicalGirl series.

Bonus points if she has a [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue-haired]] [[PinkGirlBlueBoy love interest]].

This trope doesn't count ''just'' for general pink hair. Other shades like magenta or salmon also count, but purple certainly does ''not''. Pink-haired ''boys'' can also be examples.

SubTrope of YouGottaHaveBlueHair and PinkMeansFeminine. For animals with pink fur, go see AmazingTechnicolorWildlife.

Sometimes in anime it can overlap with BitchInSheepsClothing. The pink-haired girl being designated as a YamatoNadeshiko may be a DeadUnicornTrope.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
%%* Pictured above: Akari Mizunashi from ''Manga/{{ARIA}}''.
* Lacus Clyne from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED''. For partial bonus points, Lacus was engaged to the blue-haired Athrun Zala, though it didn't last.
** As well as her BodyDouble, Meer Campbell, in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny''. She was a brunette (the colour they used actually seems to be some sort of dark grey]]) before she was altered to look like Lacus.
%%** Lunamaria Hawke ''Gundam SEED Destiny'' has magenta hair.
%%** Feldt Grace from ''{{Gundam 00}}''. WordOfGod claims she dyes it.
%%** Sarah Zabiarov of ''ZetaGundam''... Noticing a theme?
%%** Lu Anon from ''GundamAGE''.
* Haman Karn of ''Zeta'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamzz Double Zeta]]'' has pink hair, but is only cheerful and optimistic as a young girl in the ''Char's Deleted Affair'' manga set after the One Year War.
%%* [[MeaningfulName Rose]] from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', though it's actually just her bangs. The rest of her hair is dark brown.
%%* Kotoko-01 from ''DivergenceEve''.
* ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' has all 3 (naturally they are sisters). [[GenkiGirl Lala]] is cheerful and optimistic, [[{{Tsundere}} Nana]] is the FieryRedHead and [[LoveableSexManiac Momo]] is the [[SingleTargetSexuality sweet and romantic one]] (although her idea of romantic is rather [[HaremSeeker broad]]).
* [[ArtificialHuman Cheza]] from ''WolfsRain'' is the sweet, low-key romantic subtype. For bonus points, the guy who created her has blue hair, [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl not to mention]] the more tomboyish ActionGirl Blue.
* Sakura Haruno from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', and she has hair-related ThemeNaming. It's apparently ''natural'', unless she's going through the trouble of dying her ''eyebrows''. She's also in love with [[PinkGirlBlueBoy Sasuke]], although her feelings are unreciprocated.
* The titular character of ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' - at least, in the anime version. The manga version was originally a blonde. Later colored art for the manga would follow suit.
** We can probably thank Executive Meddling for this example. Chiho Saito originally had all the characters with "normal" hair colors, with Utena being more of an orangish blonde with a pink outfit, which was pointed out in the first chapter of the manga. However, when the series was developed for television, the director decided against the original pink outfit. As a compromise, Utena's outfit was changed to black, with her hair color changed to pink.
** Souji Mikage, too, but [[ManipulativeBastard he's not exactly a hero]]...
* Ichigo Momomiya from ''TokyoMewMew'' has this in the manga. In the anime, only Mew Ichigo has pink hair, whereas her civilian form has red hair.
** And in the manga, her love interest has blue hair.
* Nozomi Yumehara/Cure Dream from ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5'' in both forms.
** Queen Flora from ''[[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo]]'' also sports the "pink hair and yellow eyes" combination.
** Even if she's not a Cure, Miyuki Chinen from ''Anime/FreshPrettyCure'' is definitely an example of this, matched with gold eyes. Cure Passion from the same continuity also has pink hair, which led some people to believe that she was Miyuki until the truth about her identity was revealed. Cure Passion is a former villain, and she's still more introverted than her teammates.
** Similarly, Tsubomi Hanasaki from ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'' has this, but like Ichigo above, it's only when she transforms into Cure Blossom.
** Cure Melody from ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure''.
** Miyuki Hoshizora/Cure Happy from ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure''. She got this from her AbsurdlyYouthfulMother Ikuyo.
** Mana Aida from ''Anime/DokiDokiPrecure'' -- though, oddly, ''not'' her Cure Heart alter ego.
*** [[spoiler:Mana's bunny MentorMascot Charle can transform into a teenage girl around Mana's age and has [[CurtainsMatchTheWindow pink hair and pink eyes]].]]
* Chibiusa in ''Manga/SailorMoon'', which is actually [[LampshadeHanging pointed out]] by some of her new classmates in one of the manga side stories (and the anime special based on it).
** Similarly, in several manga illustrations, her mother Usagi was shown with light pink hair. However, this tends to stay confined to artbooks, since Usagi has blonde or silver hair in the manga proper.
** Ikuko Tsukino's hair was colored magenta in one of Naoko Takeuchi's illustrations; however, her other colored appearances show her with blue-violet hair (which the anime used).
** Also, in the beginning of the manga, Sailor Jupiter has rose-colored hair to match her rose earrings.
** Ann/Ann/An/En in 'Sailor Moon R' didn't really fit it all that well, but she DOES have a blue-haired love interest and the 'Bitch in Sheep's Clothing' also somewhat applies.
* Amu Hinamori from ''ShugoChara''. However, unlike other examples of this trope, her initial personality was somewhat introverted. One of her Charas, Ran, also has this.
** Bonus points for her, because [[TroubledButCute Ikuto]], one of Amu's love intrests, has [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue]] [[PinkGirlBlueBoy hair]]. [[spoiler: triple pointer for him being her (manga canon) choice.]]
* MagicalPrincessMinkyMomo is a CuteWitch with pink hair.
%%* Princess Silver from ''CrayonKingdomOfDreams''
%%* The titular character of ''Anime/ALittleSnowFairySugar''.
%%* Mao from ''Anime/MaoChan''.
* Himeno Awayuki in ''{{Pretear}}'', the cheerful and optimistic heroine. Also a type B {{Tsundere}} to Hayate, the aloof blue haired knight.
* Momoko from ''Manga/WeddingPeach'', one of the most upbeat characters and also the heroine.
* Doremi and Pop Harukaze from ''OjamajoDoremi''.
* The ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' series plays this absolutely straight with Caro Ru Lushe, yet inverts it to hell and back with Signum, who is probably the most {{stoic}} character in the entire franchise so far.
** Then there is Sette, one of the twelve [[{{Cyborg}} Combat Cyborgs]]. She is an EmotionlessGirl, in fact, she has the least emotions among the sisters.
* Madoka Kaname from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', showcasing her innocent nature.
* Subaru from ''HoukagoNoPleiades''.
* Hinagiku Katsura from ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler''.
** Amusingly enough, she fits ''all three'' of the types, ''and'' she has a blue-haired (clueless) love interest.
* Louise from ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero''. Then again, her hair color is described as "strawberry blonde" in the novels, and this is a real hair color. It's just that the manga and anime producers apparently don't know what "strawberry blonde" looks like.
* Miyuki Takara and her mother in ''LuckyStar''.
** Also Akira Kogami, who can ''act'' cheery until something angers her, at which point, it doesn't take a whole lot for the fiery aspect of her personality to surface.
* [[InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals Every Nurse Joy ever]] in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''.
** And [[GenkiGirl Whitney]]
* The most popular interpretation of Mimi Tachikawa in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' dyed her hair pink with small yellow stars. It was originally brown ([[HairColorDissonance or red, depending on who you ask]]).
%%* Nagisa in ''RaveMaster''.
* Kim Diehl in ''Manga/SoulEater''. There's also Crona, whose hair [[AdaptationDyeJob was pink in the manga]] but was changed to lavender in the anime, but [[AmbiguousGender s/he's]] more of a ShrinkingViolet or [[ShyBlueHairedGirl Shy Blue-haired Person of Indeterminate Gender]].
* Sora Naegino in ''KaleidoStar'' has magenta hair, which stands out because even the other native Japanese who visit her have realistic hair colors.
* Moka Akashiya's outer self in ''RosarioToVampire''.
** The actual dialogue in the manga says she has brown hair and her inner self has silver hair, [[HairColorDissonance but good luck finding ''any'' official artwork with brown hair]]. Its likely that the "brown hair" was printed by accident, either due to a translation error or something of the like.
* Trish Una, the [[TheSmurfettePrinciple token chick]] from Part 5 of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''.
* Shiho and Fumi from ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'' and ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome}}'', and Mayo from ''LightNovel/{{Mai-HiME Destiny}}''.
* Princess Euphemia li Britannia and Anya Alstreim from ''Anime/CodeGeass''. Euphy's personality fits with what's expected for this trope, being a WideEyedIdealist in a series known for its BlackAndGrayMorality. Conversely, Anya is an EmotionlessGirl...[[BreakTheCutie although she wasn't always like that.]]
%%* Mao/Mariah from ''{{Beyblade}}''.
%%* Miwako from ''ParadiseKiss'', fittingly enough.
%%* Haramura Nodoka from ''Manga/{{Saki}}' '.
%%* Ringo Yukimori from ''HimeChenOtogiChikkuIdolLilpri''. Oddly enough, she is the reincarnation of Snow White, and the most well-known versions of Snow White all have black hair.
%%* The titular PrincessComet has pink hair.
%%* Hikaru from ''HyperSpeedGranDoll''.
%%* Wilhelmina Carmel from ''ShakuganNoShana''.
%%* Noriko Nakajima from ''HellTeacherNube''.
%%* Miharu Sena Kanaka from ''Manga/GirlsBravo''.
* A more [[FieryRedhead fiery]] GenderFlip occurs with [[IdiotHero Natsu Dragonil]] from ''Manga/FairyTail''. Because [[RealMenWearPink real men have pink hair]].
** Sherry, bonus points for her love interest, who has light-blue Hair. [[spoiler:However, she's engaged to Ren after the time skip, cancelling out Lyon as a love interest.]]
** There's also the docile and kind [[SummonMagic Stellar Spirits]] Virgo and Aries, and, oddly enough, the crabby old healer, Porlyusica.
** Don't forget Meredy and Chelia! Both are cute little girls [[spoiler:though Meredy has aged after the time skip.]].
%%* The titular character of ''SteelAngelKurumi''.
* One of the rare villainous versions -- Chuutatsu Shibai from IkkiTousen ''Dragon Destiny''.
%%* Washu Hakubi from ''TenchiMuyo'', though it varies from light pink to dark pink to red, depending on the official artwork.
%%** A male example would be Seiryo Tennan from ''Tenchi'' OAV 2 and ''TenchiMuyoGXP.''
%%* Kanon Nakagawa from ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows''.
* Yui from ''Anime/AngelBeats''. And for [[RunningGag bonus points]], Hinata has blue hair.
* [[PluckyComicRelief Kiko]] from ''DarkerThanBlack'' certainly fits the GenkiGirl stereotype. However, considering that most of the cast have realistic hair colors and she's a CosplayOtakuGirl, it's quite possible she dyed it.
* [[http://nebs66.livejournal.com/1148645.html Akane Miura]], an OriginalCharacter made for ''[[Manga/KOn K-On!]]''; her hair was one of the clear indications that she was fanmade, as the show itself pretty much averts YouGottaHaveBlueHair. She's still quite popular, though.
* Kujira Etorofu from ''PenguinMusume'', who was [[WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent raised under the impression]] that she is a boy. [[SarcasmMode Because pink-haired boys are so commonplace.]]
%%* Pink-haired boy: Shuichi from ''{{Gravitation}}''.
%%* Another male example: Shun from ''HereIsGreenwood''.
* Mizuki Himeji from ''LightNovel/BakaToTestToShoukanjuu''. Pretty, nice and a mishmash of [[{{Yandere}} wacko]].
* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'': Genkai, at least, [[IWasQuiteALooker in her younger days]], is an example of the "fiery" sort. It grayed over time, though. However, [[AdaptationDyeJob in the manga]], her hair was strawberry-blonde.
* ''Manga/HunterXHunter'': Machi is a {{Kunoichi}} and a member of the murderous thief-band, Genei Ryodan. She's [[TheStoic stoic]], cold, ruthless, [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]], delivers {{Death Glare}}s, and she's deadly as any other member. She also happens to be the CombatMedic. However, Machi has only pink hair in the manga and in the 2011 anime version, while in the 1999 version she has [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair purple hair]].
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Pink-haired, hyperactive, Yachiru is the cheerful and optimistic version, always smiling, especially when Kenpachi is enjoying his fights.
* Milfeulle Sakuraba from ''Anime/GalaxyAngel''. And Takuto, as Milfeulle is the canon heroine, has black or blue hair, depending on which picture/scene you're looking at and on who's making the judgement.
%%* Anemone from ''Anime/EurekaSeven''.
%%** Elena Peoples from ''Anime/EurekaSevenAO''.
* [[JungleWaItsumoHaleNochiGuu Guu]] brilliantly subverts this. Her moe side plays this straight, but her "evil" side is very unlike this trope.
* Beauty, the heroine and MoralityPet to the title character in ''Manga/BoboboboBobobo''.
** And later on, [[spoiler:after TheReveal that his fecal matter-shaped "head" is actually a mask, it's shown that [[AloofBigBrother Softon]]'s hair is a darker shade of pink. He's also Beauty's older brother.]]
%%* Yuna Miyama from ''{{Maburaho}}''.
* [[FieryRedhead Strong and passionate]] - that definitely describes Haruko Haruhara from ''{{FLCL}}''.
* From ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', Makie Sasaki and the Narutaki twins have all been depicted with either pink or red hair. The first anime switches them all from pink to red hair about halfway through. They also all fit the "cheery girl" stereotype.
%%* Kuniko Hojo from ''LightNovel/ShangriLa''
* Rebecca Miyamoto from ''PaniPoniDash'' is a quasi-example; her hair is somehow [[MulticoloredHair both blonde and pink]].
* Caldina and Nova from ''MagicKnightRayearth''. [[GenkiGirl Hikaru's]] hair in the manga illustrations are more of a pinkish color as well (in the anime, it's [[RedHeadedHeroine red]]).
* Darry from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''.
* Coby from ''OnePiece''. However, he is a rare male ShrinkingViolet, and in direct contrast to the usual Pink-Haired teenager, he often has a nervous outlook on life - even after taking a small [[TookaLevelinBadass level in Badass]].
%%* Viola from ''Anime/KiddyGrade''.
%%* Ascoeur from ''Anime/KiddyGirlAnd''.
* Another of the rare rose-haired guys is Sanetoshi Watase from ''Anime/MawaruPenguindrum'', apparently an {{expy}} of the aforementioned [[RevolutionaryGirlUtena Souji Mikage]].
** Meanwhile, Momoka [[spoiler: Oginome]] and Hibari Isada are the local rose haired girls.
* Nono of {{Diebuster}} has long pink hair and is optimistic, cheerful, strong, and passionate.
* Cosette, Ropponmatsu II (partially), and Excel's good conscience in ''Anime/ExcelSaga''.
%%* The titular character of ''PuniPuniPoemi''.
* Toa from ''DragonautTheResonance'' with CurtainsMatchTheWindow set of pink eyes as well. Akira has hot pink hair.
* Marika from ''LightNovel/BodaciousSpacePirates'' has pink hair with the cheery and optimistic personality.
* The [[MagicalGirl Maigical Woman]] Ureshiko of ''Anime/OkusamaWaMahouShoujo'' has pink hair.
* Inori from ''GuiltyCrown'' has pale pink hair. While she's not at all a GenkiGirl, she does share the "pure" personality shown by many other characters on this page; she's one of the most loyal and caring characters in ''GuiltyCrown'' [[spoiler: and becomes something of a MessianicArchetype in the final episode]]. She also becomes more [[FieryRedhead passionate]] near the end of the show.
* One of the two protagonists of ''Go! Go! Ichigo'' is a [[{{Transsexual}} trans girl]] named [[http://i35.tinypic.com/24v1pp1.jpg Ichigo]] who has pink hair. She's quite bubbly and perky, though not a GenkiGirl.
%%* Komoe Tsukuyomi from ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex''.
%%* Amanda Werner from ''Anime/{{Blassreiter}}''.
%%* The unnamed protagonist of ''JinruiWaSuitaiShimashita''.
%%* Myuu from ''Anime/HagureYuushaNoEstetica''.
* Nagisa Shiratori from [[Anime/ChouKuseNiNarisou Chou Kuse Ni Narisou]] ("I'll make a Habit of it.") Her LoveInterest is even a [[PinkGirlBlueBoy blue-haired Boy.]]
* Yuno Gasai, from MiraiNikki, has some pretty pink hair, but she's definitely not as sweet as some of the [[{{Yandere}} other examples...]]
* Lucy/Nyuu from ''Manga/ElfenLied'', but it has a more reddish tint in the anime whereas the manga has it as bright pink. Either way, the "Nyuu" side of her personality is cheerful (and dumb as a post), while Lucy is very much "strong and passionate" (in a very psychotic way, however). Nana fits as well (though her hair was purple in the manga).
** Every diclonius in the anime version.

* Megan Gwynn (Pixie) from ''ComicBook/{{New X-Men}}'' fit the definition for a good while, until Magik (or Magik's demonic clone) got to her. Depending on the artist, her hair's now either mostly black with pink streaks or mostly pink with black streaks, but either way, she was heavily affected by having bits of her soul ripped out and is suffering some serious overall disillusionment with the X-Adults.
* [=SpyGirl=] from ''ComicBook/SpyBoy''. Of course, she is intended to be a spoof of all things anime.

* Sakura Tsuitei from ''FanFic/PrettyCureFullColor''.
* [[spoiler:Cure Dawn]] in ''Fanfic/FutariWaPrettyCureBlueMoon'' has pink hair as well, since she's basically a classic shoujo heroine [[spoiler:(or a grown-up variant)]] set up to contrast the fairly unusual leads, Cure Night and Cure Sunday. Like a lot of the modern examples (Ichigo, Tsubomi, and, yes, Chloe, too), her hair is red as a civilian.

Of course, anyone who sees her (anyone who sees her and due to her glamour is led to think she is human, that is) assumes it's dyed.
* Nymphadora Tonks from the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series can choose whatever hair color she wants as part of her magical ability. Usually, it's bubblegum pink.
* Mei Sheong of ''ParrishPlessis'' has pink hair. It's not natural, but she strongly prefers the color and spends a considerable portion of her meager salary keeping it dyed.
* Mae Crawford from ''TheDemonsLexicon'', although it's dyed. It fits her optimistic personality.
* Literature/TrappedOnDraconica: Daniar is the strong and passionate type.
* Effie Trinket from ''TheHungerGames'', who can be optimistic and effervescent to an almost manic degree. Her wig is pink in the first book (and in her first scenes in the movie), so it's the one she's most associated with, along with the color pink in general.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Stephanie from ''LazyTown''.
* Hex from ''GoodGame'' dyed her hair pink for a while.
* Nadira (Ransik's daughter) from ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce''.
* ''Series/AmericasNextTopModel'' season 18 winner Sophie Summer got this for her makeover.
* From the cast of [[Characters/TheAmazingRace23 Amazing Race 23]], Marie has bright pink highlights halfway down her hair.

[[folder:Music Videos]]
* Luka Megurine and IA of the {{Vocaloid}}s.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Independent circuit female wrestler [=LuFisto=] models her outfits on anime characters, so she sometimes dyed her hair pink.
* As a member of The Hart Dynasty, NatalyaNeidheart's blond hair occasionally has pink tips.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* In the heavily anime-influenced RPG ''Mekton'', Mike Pondsmith's infamous Lifepath character generation system includes a table for hair color, which includes both more staid, real-life hair colors as well as anime hair colors such as green, purple, blue, and, yes, pink.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Nana from ''VideoGame/MegaManXCommandMission''. Granted, she's a [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots reploid]].
* Meiru/Mayl from ''MegaManBattleNetwork'' has magenta hair, as does Sonia in ''MegaManStarForce''.
* Black Rose from ''[[Franchise/DotHack .hack//]]'', Pi from ''VideoGame/DotHackGU'', and Shino (before she changed her character's colors).
* Alisa Bosconovitch from ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} 6'', who is a [[RobotGirl robot]].
* Male example: while Link's hair has historically fluctuated between red, brown, and blond in his various appearances, sprites for ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' showed him as having pink hair. It justifies why Link becomes a [[AmazingTechnicolorWildlife pink-furred rabbit]] in the DarkWorld.
* Maki (Mary) in ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' was given pink/primary-color-red hair in the US version because they thought it would make it seem ''less'' Japanese.
* Yet another male example: Marluxia from the ''KingdomHearts'' series.
** Although he was supposed to be a woman at first; it was changed when the developers realized that, with two women, the plot would be [[UnfortunateImplications accidentally sexist]].
* Lenna in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV''...at least, according to the sprites. Artworks depict her as a blonde.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' has Lightning and her sister, Serah. (It should be noted that Lightning, being a SugarAndIceGirl to the nines, is the total opposite of the typical personality type.)
** Subverted in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'', where Ritz Malheur ''does'' have rose hair, but it was implied that she actually has white hair ([[spoiler:and Ritz changed her hair color to white during the ending]]).
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIVTheAfterYears'', Porom has started dyeing her hair pink.
* ''MitadakeHigh'', being a game which gloriously bases itself on all manners of anime stereotypes, lampshades this by having the aliases of most of the characters being their hair colour; one of them is "The Long Pink Haired Girl".
* In a rare western example. ''[[BaldursGate Baldur's Gate 2]]'' gave [[BlackMagicianGirl Imoen]] a pink hairdo, in contrast to her more normal appearance in the first game. Despite being the only person with such colouration, it's [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight never commented on]], and whether it's meant to be a dye job or [[spoiler:just an early indication of the whole [[HalfHumanHybrid Bhaalspawn]] thing]] is never resolved.
** It's a dye job, her portrait still has brown eyebrows. Also, there are wild magic effects that will turn you random colors, and one that turns the target random colors.
* Althea from ''LuminousArc2'' had light pink hair [[spoiler:before her class change]].
* In ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'', [[spoiler:if you go [[GuideDangIt far enough]] in the Xtransceiver SidequestSidestory as a male player, you discover that the Xtransceiver's owner,]] [[ImpliedLoveInterest Yancy]] has pink hair.
** Pokémon Center nurses, Gym Leaders [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Whitney]] and [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Maylene]] and Elite Four [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Malva]] also have pink hair.
* Some notable examples from the ''TalesSeries'' include:
** Presea Combatir from ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia''. And her sister, [[PosthumousCharacter Alicia]], who dated Regal, who has blue hair.
** Estelle from ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia''. There's also Zagi as a male example, [[PsychoForHire though he's about as far from nice as it gets]].
** [[{{Tsundere}} Arche Klein]] from ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia''.
** [[InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals The three Kanonnos]] from the ''[[TalesOfTheWorld Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology]]'' series, with [[HairDecorations season-appropriate hair decs]] to match.
* [[CuteGhostGirl Yuyuko Saigyouji]] from the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' series, due to her cherry blossom theme and her cheerful and optimistic personality.
** Kasen Ibaraki for the actual [[SomethingAboutARose rose theme]], as well as [[DontFearTheReaper Komachi Onozuka]].
* [[CuteWitch Pamela]] from ''YggdraUnion'' and [[CuteMute Vienya]] from ''KnightsInTheNightmare'', both from the ''VideoGame/DeptHeaven'' series.
* The Standard Branch of the ''TokimekiMemorial'' series (sans the most recent title, ''Tokimeki Memorial 4'') has a good number of Rose-Haired Girls.
** ''Tokimemo 1'' has [[{{Ojou}} Yukari]] [[CloudCuckooLander Koshiki]] and [[GenkiGirl Yuko]] [[TheFashionista Asahina]] (who just happen to be [[OddFriendship best friends]]).
** ''Tokimemo 2'' has the [[TwinSwitch Shirayuki twins]], [[TheIngenue Miho]] and [[GenkiGirl Maho]], as well as EnsembleDarkHorse [[DefrostingIceQueen Kaori]] [[TheWoobie Yae]] (who happened to be a GenkiGirl before the events that made her the BrokenBird she is at the start of the game, [[spoiler: and gradually returns to her former GenkiGirl self after she overcomes her painful past, thanks to the PowerOfLove]]).
** ''Tokimemo 3'' has [[MadScientist Rika Kawai]].
* ''VideoGame/MitsumeteKnight'', the SpiritualSuccessor of ''Tokimeki Memorial'', also has two rose-haired characters : [[TokenMiniMoe Laury]] [[TastesLikeDiabetes Callwell]] and Mieu Cartith.
* Aoi Kanda and Rin Shirosaki of ''OsuTatakaeOuendan 2''.
* Milfeulle Sakuraba from ''VideoGame/GalaxyAngel''. And Takuto Meyers has blue hair, so, bonus points.
* The Dark World version of Elle in ''{{Terranigma}}''. However, her supposedly identical counterpart in the Light World is a redhead.
* Amy Rose from the ''SonicTheHedgehog'' series, who, of course, lusts after a [[OverlyLongGag blue-furred]] hedgehog.
* Shiki Misaki from ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou''. [[spoiler: Well, in Eri's form, at least.]]
* Several characters from the ''HarvestMoon'' series, including Nina, Lillia, Popuri, and Lyla from the series proper, and Lynette, Melody, and (arguably) Lara from ''RuneFactory''.
* Vivian from ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''.
** [[spoiler:Shadow Queen has pink hair, though it's kind of dark or something. [[SealedEvilInACan Although the]] [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Shadow Queen]] [[NightmareFuel most emphatically does]] ''[[UltimateEvil not]]'' [[BiggerBad adhere to the typical personality of the trope...]]]]
* [[LadyOfWar Claves]] from ''EternalSonata''.
* [[ActionGirl Alicia]] from ''RadiataStories''.
* The ''ManaKhemia'' series has several examples. In the first game, there is [[IllGirl Jessica]] [[GenkiGirl Philomele]], a student who carries a [[{{Hammerspace}} purse]] with all kinds of deadly [[StuffBlowingUp chemical explosives]]. The sequel brings us [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Etward]] [[ButtMonkey Deisler]] from ''ManaKhemia2'', an [[MightyGlacier incredibly powerful young girl,]] and quite stacked to match.
* Serra from ''FireEmblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe The Blazing Blade]]'' and Ethlin from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Geneaology of the Holy War]]'' are GenkiGirl examples, while Linoan from ''Thracia 776'' is the docile ProperLady variety.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' has Neimi, whose love interest, Colm, has blue hair.
** Also, Ena and Marcia from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path of Radiance]]''.
** Predating all of the previous FE examples are Est and Feena from "[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Shadow Dragon and Mystery of the Emblem]]".
** Olivia in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Awakening]]'', except she's a ShrinkingViolet. And though you ''[[StrangledByTheRedString really ]]''[[StrangledByTheRedString have to push it]], she can marry the blue-haired Chrom. Cherche, too, as a ProperLady variant. (Though she can't marry Chrom due to appearing after the TimeSkip).
*** Also, when [[spoiler: a male PlayerCharacter marries either Cherche or Olivia, their GenkiGirl daughter Morgan will possess pink hair.]] Similarly, [[spoiler: if said male character is given pink hair, then his non-Morgan son/daughter will be rose-haired too.]]
* [[MsFanservice Selena Recital]] from ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'', though it's more of a magenta color.
* Rizelea from ''VideoGame/TrinityUniverse''.
* Hanako from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}''.
** Raspberyl from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|AbsenceOfJustice}}'' and Vulcanus from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 4|A Promise Unforgotten}}'', also.
* [[DishingOutDirt Argilla]] from ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga''. Bonus points for being TheChick.
* Leslie from ''VideoGame/ArcRiseFantasia''.
* Mayu Uzaka from ''VideoGame/LightningLegendDaigoNoDaibouken''. She's of the cheery, strong, and passionnate type, being a {{Tomboy}} [[JusticeWillPrevail fighting for justice]].
* The titular character of ''IzunaLegendOfTheUnemployedNinja''.
* [[BlowYouAway Liebea]] from ''VideoGame/{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}''. Bonus points for being a ProperLady who's prone to crying.
* Millie Chliette from ''[[VideoGame/StarOcean1 Star Ocean]]''. And Roddick has blue hair.
* Luna from ''SoulSeries'', one of opponents you can face in ''Chronicles of Sword''. Personality wise, she is more of a FieryRedhead.
* Ulala from ''VideoGame/SpaceChannel5''.
* Princess Shokora from ''[[VideoGame/WarioLand Wario Land 4]]''.
* Claris Sinclair from ''VideoGame/NightsIntoDreams'', who also [[PinkGirlBlueBoy has a blue-haired male counterpart]].
* [[DamselInDistress Lucy]] in ''VideoGame/DynamiteDux''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Kohaku and Hisui from ''{{Tsukihime}}''. Kohaku is cheery, while Hisui is docile.
* Misha from ''KatawaShoujo'' is of the [[ThePollyanna cheery]], [[GenkiGirl energetic]] type. [[spoiler:Except she actually dyes her hair and she's [[StepfordSmiler not actually as cheery as you'd think]].]]
* April May from ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney''.
* Rimi Sakihata from ''ChaosHead''.
* [[MeaningfulName Rose]]tta from ''VisualNovel/WinterShard''.
* Michiru from ''VisualNovel/{{AIR}}'' has magenta hair.
* [[SpiritedYoungLady Rose Haibara]], protagonist of ''RoseGunsDays'', is of a generally kind and understanding nature, making everyone love her. However she ''can'' speak strongly when there is something she cannot accept.
* ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' has Kazuichi Souda, the SHSL Mechanic with neon pink and wildly styled hair. [[spoiler:He's deliberately trying to invoke this by dying it from its original black and growing it out.]]
* Elodie from ''VisualNovel/LongLiveTheQueen'', who starts out as a sweet, innocent, and somewhat naive fourteen-year old princess who just inherited the throne on her mother's death. Depending on how you play (and whether she survives), she can continue to play out the stereotype, or [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen turn into one hell of a subversion]].
* Arisa Miyoshi and Mayumi Kamijou from VisualNovel/TrueLoveJunaiMonogatari.
* Kendall Flowers from ''Series/DontTakeItPersonallyBabeItJustAintYourStory'', a charismatic, outspoken, terrifyingly intelligent and occasionally rather insensitive teenage girl.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Antimony Carver from ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''. But she's apparently a redhead, judging from other characters' comments, and it may only look pink for stylistic reasons. This applies to her late mother, Surma, as well.
* Charm from PinkBlack has long, pink hair. This contrasts a lot with Zero's (who may be her boyfriend) and her best friend [[EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette Sifris']] hair colours.
* Cecania Greensworthington in ''SoreThumbs''. It was eventually revealed that she dyes it.
* Sanaa [[strike:Whilhelm]] [[spoiler:Tryggvassen]] of ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' also has pink hair. Although, given her brother's reaction when seeing her, it might be a dye job (or unnatural in some other way; in this world, there're plenty of options).
** He might have been talking about her haircut; the color extends to her eyebrows, so it's most likely natural. Besides, [[spoiler:Othar]] is white haired, so odd hair colors may not be anything unusual for that family in the first place.
*** Light-colored hair tends to take dye well (unlike dark hair, which has to be bleached first and ''then'' dyed). It's possible they all have white or blonde hair, and Sanaa just added the pink.
* In ''LasLindas'', there's [[TheChick Taffy]], who fits this trope too well. Even if [[spoiler: her hair is dyed.]]
%%* Steffi of ''Webcomic/KiwiBlitz''.
%%* Shiki Yagami of MitadakeSaga
* In ''Webcomic/GetMedieval'', Kaguya, who may also be, according to the strip, [[http://www.ainself.net/irony/get_medieval/get_medieval0595.gif the origin of this trope]].
* Candi, the titular character of the webcomic ''{{Candi}}''.
* In ''Webcomic/MegaTokyo'', [[RobotGirl Ping]] has this hair color at one point.
* Kit Ballard from ''BladeKitten''.
* ''EverydayHeroes'' has magneta-haired [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eddurd/everydayheroes/series.php?view=single&ID=165084 Zinger Sharpley.]]
* In {{Pibgorn}}, [[http://www.gocomics.com/pibgorn/2006/05/15/ the chorus]].
* Crystal from ''SailorSun''.
* Sheena from ''Webcomic/KidRadd''. And Radd himself has [[OverusedRunningGag blue-black hair]].
* Momo from ''QuestionableContent''. Justified in that she's an anime-style robot.
* Linneus from ''{{Teahouse}}'' is a rare male example, and the [[WordOfGod creators have stated]] multiple times that they just wanted to have a comic with a pink haired boy. He even smells like roses! He's often mistaken for a transsexual by readers due to his hair color and his effeminate style of dress.
* In ''OurLittleAdventure'',
** [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0240.html one of the priestesses at the Temple of Hope.]]
** [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0297.html Julie uses it as a disguise.]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Princess Bubblegum of ''AdventureTime'' has many of these traits, except for the romantic part.
* Aelita from ''CodeLyoko'' has natural pink hair both in her Lyoko avatar and in the real world. She inherited it from her mother, who is shown in flashbacks to sport the same hair color. It stands out as the rest of the cast has a normal range of hair colors for French kids (assuming Odd's purple spot is ''permanently'' dyed).
** In the novel adaptation, Aelita has pink hair on Lyoko, [[spoiler: but she and her mother have red hair in the real world.]]
** This is kept in the LiveActionAdaptation - Aelita's actress's hair will be sprayed pink for filming.
%%* Willow from ''AKindOfMagic''.
* Wanda in ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents''. Justified because she's a fairy and [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair weird hair colors]] are common in Fairy World.
%%* Amethyst from ''{{Trollz}}''.
%%* Jem (identity of Jerrica) from ''[[{{Jem}} same name]]''.
%%** Until Raya comes her.
* Rejected Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} pilot ''WesternAnimation/TheModifyers'' has Agent Xero, who had pink hair as her normal look.
%%* Jinmay from ''SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperForceGo''.
%%* CJTheDJ.
* Molly of ''BubbleGuppies'' is most often the [[GenkiGirl cheery and optimistic]] kind. She also has a [[PinkGirlBlueBoy blue-haired]] [[ToyShip love interest]].
* ''Many'' characters from ''Franchise/MyLittlePony''.
** In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyAndFriends'', there's Sundance, Posey, Cotton Candy, Bow Tie, Ember, Twilight (The version of her based off the so-soft pony), Lickety-Split, Heart Throb, Truly, Baby Cuddles, Baby Tiddly Winks, Wind Whistler, Rosedust, Honeysuckle, Princess Royal Blue, and Princess Serena.
*** As for the ponies with MulticoloredHair, there's Locket, Fizzy, Baby Fifi, Gingerbread, Galaxy, and Sweet Stuff.
** Patch, Clover and Sweetheart from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTales''; Patch and Clover are GenkiGirl examples while Sweetheart is the docile version.
** Fluttershy from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is the docile version, while Pinkie Pie is both the "cheery and optimistic" version and an ''extreme'' GenkiGirl. [[BewareTheNiceOnes In both cases]] however, you ''don't'' want to [[BerserkButton mess with their friends]]. Celestia is also depicted with rose hair 1000 years ago, though speculation about what her personality was like back then is just that.
*** Maybe the rose hair is just a sign that she isn't as powerful as she becomes later? [[FridgeBrilliance After all, what happens to the sun before (or after) it ascends? It turns pink!]]
*** For background ponies side, we also got [[AllThereInTheScript Nurse Redheart, Lotus Blossom, Fleur Dis Lee, Roseluck (with a touch of red), Rainbowshine, Twinkleshine]], and [[FanNickname Dizzy Twister]].
%%* Miss Naughty from ''TheMrMenShow''.
* Dolce from ''AngelsFriends'' is of the cheery and optimistic type.
* Starfire from WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo! is usually very optimistic and cheerful.
* Trina from ''WesternAnimation/{{Grojband}}'', although she has the attitude of a FieryRedhead.
