* Lheorvine is the only black man in ''Literature/BlackLegion'', and one of precious few in ''Tabletop/{{Warhammer 40 000}}''. Before Matt Ward retconned their dark skin into a "mutation" the Salamanders space marines, and the people of their homeworld, Nocturne, were an entire ''planet'' of token blacks. Post-Ward, it's assumed that the denizens of Nocturne are white, but "turn black" when they become Salamanders.

* Lampshaded in ''Series/JasonKing''. King is adapting one of his adventures for a TV series. The television executive insists that the hero should have a sidekick, who is first portrayed as a white guy, only to change to a black guy to go with the latest trend, then ending up with an Asian guy to get a wider potential audience.

** There was a married black couple of [[TheHunter hunters]], one of whom was British, who were rude and overconfident. [[BlackGuyDiesFirst The husband died]] in their first appearance, and the wife was not very useful and never came back. First-season psychic character [[MagicalNegro Missouri Moseley]] could have been useful on a number of occasions since when they've been desperate for allies, including on a couple of occasions specifically a psychic, but has never even been referenced, even when they went back to her town, although it was too late for help by that point.
