[[ScienceMarchesOn Back when it had its planetary status]], Pluto was often depicted as blue. This most likely had to do with the cold nature of the stellar body, but was probably helped by being near the truly blue Uranus and Neptune. It wasn't until photos came back from New Horizons that Pluto was revealed to be a lovely shade of peach (much closer to the color of Mickey Mouse’s dog of the same name). People on social media invoked this trope by (often jokingly) insisting the dwarf planet was blue.

East Asians run the color spectrum, from very light-skinned Manchu-Tungus peoples of the far north to dark-orange or light-to-medium-brown Austronesians (Indonesians, Filipinos, etc.) of the south. But most Westerners expect to see the kind of maize-yellow complexion that no human being would have in real life unless suffering from jaundice.

Throughout the universe, stars can be violet, blue, white, cream, yellow, orange, or red; this depends on their precise gas/metal content, with more gaseous stars being bluer. Ironically, however, the bluer stars are hotter than the redder stars, which can be confusing to people who associate red with hot and blue with cold!
