* Assassin, adventuress and safari-savvy Johanna Smith-Rhodes, from the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' continuum fanfic [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5318396/1/Nature-Studies Nature Studies.]] She started life as a rather attitudinal "[[TheApartheidEra Sed-Efrrrrikan]]" with all the knobs of White Southern African-ness turned up to eleven. In her most recent appearance in '''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11536013/1/Hyperemesis-gravidarum Hyperemesis Gravidarum]]''', she becomes proud mother to a daughter who promises to have Mother's red hair and green eyes.

Added DiffLines:

* Several celebrities (who are significant by virtue of being, well, celebrities) have red hair and green eyes:
** The aforementioned Creator/MaureenOHara
** Creator/RupertGrint
** Creator/TildaSwinton and Creator/BenedictCumberbatch, although [[DyeHard you'd be forgiven for not knowing that their hair is naturally red]]. Cumberbatch's eyes can also look blue or gray depending on the lighting.
** Creator/KarenGillan, although her eyes are more hazel than pure green.

* Probably the most significant figure of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries was UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan, who had red hair and green eyes according to Mongol and Kazakh folk tales and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rashid-al-Din_Hamadani Rashid al-Din]]'s histories. Red hair and green eyes are [[AluminumChristmasTrees more common in Central Asia than one might expect]] [[note]]albeit often more muted than in the West -- for example, Central Asian red hair is more brownish than the bright ginger shades seen in Northern Europe[[/note]], but modern depictions usually ignore these traits, perhaps because [[RealityIsUnrealistic today's audiences would have a hard time believing that an Asian man could have red hair and green eyes]].

* Male example: Probably the most significant figure of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries was UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan, who was described as having red hair and green eyes. Those traits are actually more common than you'd expect in Central Asia. This is rarely seen in modern depictions, with Genghis instead usually portrayed as stereotypically Asian...perhaps because [[RealityIsUnrealistic modern audiences would have a hard time believing that a Mongol could have red hair and green eyes]]. It's also worth noting that red hair in Central Asia tends to be more brownish than red hair in Northern Europe. This would stick out like a sore thumb in Asia, where people aren't as used to ''any'' red hair; thus, Mongolian folk tales and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rashid-al-Din_Hamadani Rashid al-Din]]'s histories describe Genghis Khan as a FieryRedhead. But at any rate, his hair wasn't the same bright ginger color seen in places like Scotland and Ireland.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'':
** Penny, though she is not a FieryRedhead.
** Pyrrha Nikos has very long, very red hair and the greenest eyes of any character. She is one of Beacon's [[ChildProdigy star]] [[TheAce pupils]], being Mistral's four-times champion, and has a reputation for being untouchable, partly due to her extremely powerful Semblance, which controls magnetism. [[spoiler: She's also TooCoolToLive and TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth.]]
** Nora [[PhenotypeStereotype somehow also becomes this]] after having had blue eyes in Volume 1, perhaps to better resemble her inspiration (Thor).
** Incidentally, Neon Katt also qualifies for this trope.

Green-eyed redheads are among the rarest color combinations found in humanity (with the exception of some abnormalities), and thus is used to distinguish an important, notable character visually.[[note]]Oddly enough, red hair and blue eyes is an even rarer combination but isn't treated as particularly important in fiction. Probably because blue eyes alone are fairly common, but red hair and green eyes are each individually uncommon in most populations. (The green eyed redhead may also be more visually appealing because red and green are complementary colors).[[/note]] It's more often found with women than with men, and is almost always either found as a trait of TheHero (see RedIsHeroic) or The Hero's LoveInterest (because HeroesWantRedheads). To qualify for this trope, it's important that:
