* Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'': Chase is portrayed by a Maori actor, along with his family and many minor characters. On a lesser note, we see a single black Mord'Sith, the rest being white (in the books, they all were).

* Averted amongst the humans in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'', where there are a number of prominent nonwhite characters. However, it's notable that when the Autobots turn human in "Human Error", there's one black kid - and it's Bumblebee. This is because of the voice actors - Bumblebee is the only main-cast Autobot with a black voice actor (Bumper Robinson).

Added DiffLines:

* Jonathan Gresham in Search And Destroy, although this wasn't by design so much as [[RealLifeWritesThePlot circumstance]]. One other did briefly make it to TV, but Wrestling/LioRush was PutOnABus due to an attack from Shane Taylor of The Rebellion.

* Of the foreigners who came into Wrestling/{{FMW}} for ''Texas Street Fight'', [[Wrestling/{{Jacqueline}} Sweet Georgia Brown]] became this among the FMW women's division. She spent an even longer time as the black one of the WWF's women's division until [[Wrestling/CarleneMoore Jazz]] debuted.
* Kenny King in the Full Impact Pro PowerStable Young Rich And Ready For Action. Kenny ''could'' be considered one of the "main" members, mostly by virtue of representing the group in Wrestling/RingOfHonor but nonetheless the rest (Jason Blade, Portia Perez, Wrestling/ClaudioCastagnoli, The Lovely Lacey, Sal Rinauro, Radiant Rain, Wrestling/{{Daffney|Unger}}, Steve Madison, Becky Bayless, Chasyn Rance, [=SoCal=] Val, [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters etc]]) were all white.

* Concerning SHINE PowerStable Las Sicarias, it is easy to forget Amanda Rodriguez is "The Peruvian Princess" when every other member (Wrestling/IvelisseVelez, Wrestling/LaRosaNegra, Wrestling/TheaTrinidad, Wrestling/MercedesMartinez) is Puerto Rican and 2/3rds of them [[PatrioticFervor are loud about it.]]

* ''VideoGame/AceCombat'' series' Constructed world of Strangereal seems to have no [[FantasyCounterpartCulture equivalent]] of Africa or East Asia, yet some token characters obviously representing those region's ethnic groups are often included:
** The SeriesMascot Kei Nagase is the most egregious case, having appeared in some form (i.e. as one of mostly unrelated women who just happen to have exact same name, looks, and similar personalities) in ''VideoGame/AceCombat2''/''VideoGame/AceCombatAssaultHorizonLegacy'', ''VideoGame/AceCombat3Electrosphere'', ''VideoGame/AceCombat04ShatteredSkies'', and ''VideoGame/AceCombat5TheUnsungWar'' -- despite being the only apparently-Japanese person in world where no Japan exists (she also pops up in ''VideoGame/AceCombatAssaultHorizon'' and ''VideoGame/AceCombatInfinity'' but those are set on alternate Earths, making her appearance more plausible, if still token).
