** Subverted with the Magus in the opening five-part episode ''Awakening''; with his long white hair, elfin features, high-pitched voice and an unfriendly attitude towards our heroes, the show does just about everything short of putting up a sign to paint him as a villain, but he ultimately turns out to be a loyal and heroic character.

Despite the wide range and use of HairColors for characters, there's an eerie specificity to the use of white/silver hair when coupled with a [[{{Bishonen}} pale, handsome, vaguely-effeminate face]]. It is often combined with FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon in order to cause an uncannily angelic appearance of a demonic being. The ([[LongHairedPrettyBoy usually long]] and rarely tied back) white hair is very frequently coupled with {{red|EyesTakeWarning}} {{e|vilAlbino}}yes, and often with a dark outfit for contrast.

contrast. Even if there is long, white-haired pretty boy in the side of good, almost always, they will be a {{Jerkass}} (even though sometimes they will be [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold nice inside]]) or the TokenEvilTeammate, almost never a completely NiceGuy. Short white-haired pretty boy or white-haired women (regardless of hair length) that is nice is not uncommon, though.

** Considering the questionable labor practices of the Schnee Dust Company and implied abusiveness towards his daughters, Weiss's father may also qualify.

* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Raith from ''Literature/TheShatteredSea'' is a young warrior with white hair and while not necessarily handsome, is something of an accidental chick magnet. He's introduced as a vicious, dishonorable warrior with a HairTriggerTemper, who will follow any order, no matter how immoral. However, over time, he ends up as a sympathetic figure due to his traumatic DarkAndTroubledPast and desire to atone.
