** The cast has more or less the normal range of hair colors, except for Rei's blue and Kaworu's gray. Then again, neither Rei nor Kaworu are fully human... It has been suggested by some fans that Rei and Kaworu may, as a result of genetic tampering, have albinism. It's a reasonable assumption (very pale skin, red eyes). Creator/HideakiAnno, however, insists that this was just to make them stand out against the other characters.
** Misato has dark purple hair, though that might be a case of HairColorDissonance.
** Bizarrely, ''The End of Evangelion'' reveals that [[spoiler:Unit 01]] has blue hair.

Creator/HideakiAnno, however, among fans that they're albinos - this is unlikely to be true, as neither show any signs of albinism, and Kaworu is shown to have eerily good eyesight as a hint as to his inhuman nature, whereas albinism is heavily associated with poor eyesight; it's more likely that this is an effect of them both [[spoiler: being the vessel of the soul of an ancient alien entity, Rei for Lilith, Kaworu for Adam]], and Creator/HideakiAnno insists that this was just to make them stand out against the other characters.
** Misato has dark purple hair, though that might be a case of HairColorDissonance.
HairColorDissonance, meant to represent black hair; the odd thing here being that most other Japanese characters in the show have realistic black or brown hair, ignoring Ritsuko, who dyes hers, begging the question as to why hers wasn't just depicted as such, when it's clearly not dyed and unlike Rei's, is never noted as odd in-universe.
** Bizarrely, ''The End of Evangelion'' reveals that [[spoiler: [[HumongousMecha Unit 01]]]] has blue hair. As [[spoiler:Unit 01]] has blue hair.01 is formed from Lilith's flesh]], this suggests that Rei's hair colour is also a result of her link to [[spoiler:Lilith]].

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' features characters with pink (Madoka), blue (Sayaka), green (Hitomi), bright yellow (Mami), and red (Kyouko) hair, as well as a character with grey hair at a young age (Kyousuke, bonus points for his parents having normal (dark brown) hair). [[CurtainsMatchTheWindow Curtains Matching the Windows]] is the norm and characters that are {{magical girl}}s usually have the same color for their outfits (e.g. Sayaka has blue hair, blue eyes, and a blue outfit). The exception of the trope for the most part is Homura who has hair that mostly looks black/anthracite. However it's sometimes depicted as dark purple, which matches her eyes and outfit. WordOfGod has stated that Mami is not fully Japanese, which could explain her hair and eye color, but her true ethnicity has not been revealed.

The main exception of the trope for the most part is Homura Homura, who has hair that mostly looks black/anthracite. However it's In-universe, this is considered a big part of her [[RavenHairIvorySkin beauty]], leading to a somewhat surreal scene of several girls with green, blue, and purplish hair fawning over her apparently gorgeous ''black'' hair--the most common color in real-life Japan, but seemingly very unusual in the Madoka world. It's sometimes depicted as dark purple, which matches her eyes and outfit. outfit, though this may be a side effect of her purple-colored magic.

* In ''Manga/DontenNiWarau'', Takeda and Sakichi both have green hair and Botan has purple hair (though she can be justified since she isn't actually human). The pure white locks of the Fuma clan aren't natural, but probably still count.

** And then there are the manga covers, which give [[{{Badass}} Sousuke]] either lavender or light blue hair for some reason.

** Lovecraft's hair is deep blue, which may be justified seeing as he's [[EldritchAbomination not quite human]].

** Evangeline speculates in the manga that [[HalfHumanHybrid Setsuna]] probably has white hair and red eyes, but dyes her hair and wears contacts. We have never actually seen this in any of the different versions of the series, though.
