** Shadow Link, from the ''Manga/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwordsAdventures'' manga, is shown to have purple hair]], likely because purple is the direct opposite of yellow and all the other "Links" are blond.

* None of the main characters in ''LightNovel/SoundEuphonium'' have unnatural hair colors, though a few have [[ImplausibleHairColor abnormal hair colors]], however a few unnamed students have colors like green or blue. They [[NonstandardCharacterDesign stand out]] amongst the cast of mainly brown and black haired characters.

* ''Manga/BlueExorcist'' is a strange case. Though there are numerous characters with unusual or even impossible hair colors for a show set in Japan, all these characters either dye them or have demonic ancestry. The only exception being Shiemi who is blonde with seemingly japanese ancestry and [[spoiler: she is hinted to have something special with her family]]

* ''Anime/CorrectorYui'' falls somewhere in between this and implausible. In the anime, Haruna has normal roan red hair, while Yui, being blonde, puts it at least at implausible. The other Correctors have rainbow hair, but they're computer programs. In the manga, though, Haruna has unmistakably purple hair, and in the second season of the anime, purple-haired Ai comes in from the real world.
** [[InternetBackdraft I do, sir. I sure do]]. But changing the subject, in the anime, Ai's hair can pass as black, while in manga, it's dark purple (in the pilots, it's a greyish brown).

* Subverted with Aiko from ''Manga/GoodnightPunpun''. Artwork has shown her with a myriad of different colors ranging from green to red, however her canon color is a mundane brown.



* ''Anime/KillLaKill'', despite its ridiculously over-the-top nature, actually has hair colors that mostly fall into the realm of reality. Some of the exceptions being the grey-blue-haired Mikisugi, pink-haired Nonon, tealish-haired Houka, lilac-haired Rei, green-haired Uzu, and possibly Ryuko and Tsumugu, who both have red stripes in their hair, though the latter of two's could conceivably be a dye-job but, in Ryuko's case, [[spoiler: it's actually a strand of life fibers that sprang from her being half-fused with them shortly after birth.]] Then there's [[TropeCodifier Ragyo Kiryuin]], whose hair is not only [[MulticoloredHair rainbow colored]], but also shines its own light in a way reminiscent of a neon sign.
* Subverted in ''Manga/KoeNoKatchi''. Most official art gives Shouko pinkish red hair, however her canon color is actually dark brown. The artworm is simply stylized. Played straight in the anime film adaptation, as her hair color really is pinkish red.

** Sakura, who has pink hair (and ThemeNaming based upon her hair colour). And it's apparently ''natural'', unless she's going to the trouble of dying her ''eyebrows''. If not for her, it would fit possibly into plausible hair due to the show not being set in Japan (even though everyone ''is'' culturally Japanese). She apparently gets her pink hair from herfather.

** Dawn has dark blue hair! That's what the page was named for! Subverted with her game design, which is black with blue highlights.

** Crystal inverts this trope. She originally had [[http://netkun.com/pockemon/gallery/big_img/gallery01.html brown]] [[http://netkun.com/pockemon/gallery/big_img/gallery03.html hair]], but was [[http://netkun.com/pockemon/gallery/big_img/gallery05.html changed]] to [[http://netkun.com/pockemon/gallery/big_img/gallery07.html blue]] to match her game and anime counterparts. She changed back to brown recently though, which mades people wonder what will happen in the ''Heartgold/Soulsilver'' arc (the game features a brunette femaleprotagonist)... On the cover of an ''Emerald'' volume, her hair was brown, but an image at the end of the saga shows her with dark blue hair. As of ''HGSS'', it stayed dark blue again. But really, either the artist really can't make up his mind or he's trollin' us. Seriously, every time there's a colored shot of her, her hair color changes. Even her first outfit was like this; her jacket would go between white and pink.
** Platinum Berlitz and Diamond both have blue hair, though they're dark blue colours that resemble black.

* Subverted in ''Manga/ASilentVoice''. Most official art gives Shouko pinkish red hair, however her canon color is actually dark brown. The artworm is simply stylized. Played straight in the anime film adaptation, as her hair color really is pinkish red.



* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', Bernkastel's blue/[[AdaptationDyeJob purplish]] hair stands out when compared to the rest of the cast introduced up to that point (she ''is'' a magical being: [[spoiler:namely, an amalgamation of all the Higurashi's Rika who didn't survive the GroundhogDayLoop]]). It stretches a bit on the very redheaded Battler and white-haired Kyrie (being Japanese), but at least they are natural hair colors.

* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'''s human characters have every possible natural hair color (except Genkai, who's graying now but originally had pink hair), while the more fantastic characters usually have more fantastic hair colors. Both Kurama and Kuwabara have red hair, for example, but they're very different shades. To be fair, however, Genkai originally was strawberry-blonde.
** Botan's is even lampshaded.

* The main cast of ''La Corda d'Oro'' contains a ''rainbow'' of unnatural hair colors. Let's see...Kahoko Hino's bright red, Len Tsukimori's blue, Ryoutarou Tsuchiura and Kazuki Hihara's varying shades of green, Azuma Yunoki's purple, Shoko Fuyuumi's bluish-green, Kanazawa-sensei's reddish purple, Shinobu Ousaki's the ''other'' shade of red, and Keiichi Shimizu's blonde. Lili is a subversion, since he's a fairy and it seems that he came with Seisou Academy's founder from Europe anyway.

* The eponymous character of ''Anime/YuGiOh'' has ''[[MulticoloredHair three-colored]]'' hair -- black, gold, and ''pink''. Aside from that, the show tends more toward weird hair styles then weird hair colors -- indeed, some of the odder hair colours from [[Anime/YuGiOhFirstAnimeSeries Season 0]] (such as Kaiba's bright radium-green hair) were recoloured to something more probable for the better known later seasons.

** ''[[Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF Resurrection 'F']] literally applies this trope to Goku and Vegeta's Super Saiyan transformations as a result of the two of them being infused with [[Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods Super Saiyan God energy]].

** In ''Anime/MacrossDelta'', protagonist Hayate Immelman has blue hair, and the human members of Walküre also play this straight; Mikumo Guynemer has purple hair with blue-gray highlights, Kaname Buccaneer has bright red hair, and Makina Nakajima has pink hair ([[spoiler:though it's later revealed that Mikumo is actually an ArtificialHuman created with ancient alien DNA]]). Additionally, BridgeBunnies Beth Muscat, Nina O'Brien, and Mizuki Yuri has purple, orange, and green hair respectively, though Nina is implied to have at least some degree of non-human ancestry.
