* The celebrated "Glowing Green Monkeys", who were created by gene-splicing lab monkeys with bioluminescent sea creatures. Their hair only glows under fluorescent light, however, and look more of a dull greenish-brown under normal conditions. Bioluminescent pigs, on the other hand, are [[http://gizmodo.com/these-pigs-glow-in-the-dark-to-save-lives-1491589459 bright yellow]].

* Nikki from ''WebAnimation/CampCamp'' has mint-green hair, as well as pink {{technicolor eyes}}. This is odd, given that other her and her mother, no other character has odd hair or eye coloration like this.

Though there are plenty of ways to differentiate characters from each other, one of normally limited utility is hair color. Human hair has a limited amount of variation, after all, not enough to make everyone on a half hour show once a week [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience easily distinguished]]. Thus, this {{trope}} was born, so that artists could use the full spectrum of color. It's so common that it's mostly considered an AcceptableBreakFromReality now.

There are several reasons why artists do this. The first, noted above, is to help distinguish characters from each other especially if their designs are [[OnlySixFaces highly stylized and simplified]], as with AnimeHair, and other features such as eye shapes, tattoos, scars, accessories. It may be done to indicate character personality, such as an EmotionlessGirl [[ReiAyanamiExpy with blue or white hair]]. It may indicate that a character is unique, if they are the only one in the cast with their hair color. Or it may be done just to suit the artist's taste for variety. In some cases, artists may use PowerDyesYourHair to explain how a character gets unusual hair when otherwise trying to be realistic in their hair color choices. Also not uncommon is that the CurtainsMatchTheWindow.
