In fiction, coconuts will usually be brown with a fuzzy surface. In RealLife, coconuts are green and have a smooth surface, only turning brown and fuzzy when it's cut out of the pod and its second layer becomes dried.

[[ScienceMarchesOn Back when it had it's 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 brown. People on social media invoked this trope by (often jokingly) insisting the dwarf planet was blue.

In RealLife stars can be pretty much any color, but the stars the naked eye can see in the night sky are white. In fiction, stars in the sky--especially those drawn as large, five-pointed "sticker" stars--are usually yellow to [[ColorContrast contrast the night sky's dark blue]].

Added DiffLines:

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!

There are stereotyped object colors that are highly prevalent in fiction, but do not reflect RealLife color variations. They have become embedded in popular consciousness through sheer repetition, to the point that exceptions just seem ''odd''.

Cheese comes in many colors, including yellow, orange, yellow-orange, light yellow, red, white, and even blue, but in cartoons, it's hard to find any examples where cheese hasn't been depicted cheddar yellow-orange or orange.

The skin colour of white people nearly always depicted as pink, and we're told it's pink, but in reality its a much more subtle selection of light browns, translucency, red beneath the skin, with some blue. It's also often depicted as the stereotypical "Celtic" skin tone: very pale pink, turning bright pink or red when sunburned or after strenuous exercise, when many people of European descent are at least a little darker. Caucasians with darker shades might just be [[AmbiguouslyBrown colored brown out of sheer laziness]] (see PhenotypeStereotype).
