* ''Literature/TheTwelveKingdoms'' novels. The starting setting is a plausible, normal Japan, where people have the Japanese hair colors and such. Then, the main character, Youko Nakajima, has almost red hair and it's completely natural (although people accuse her of dyeing it red to bring attention to herself). Then, a ''platinum blond'' (almost white-haired) Japanese looking guy appears from nowhere and wants to take Youko to his world (making people assume he's a gangster and she's secretly his girlfriend). When she finally goes to this world, between all the suffering, she sees Japanese-looking people of all skintones ''and'' hair colors. All the colors in a rainbow. The anime shows it with beautiful detail, but not as impressively as it is the novel description. But taking in consideration that [[JustifiedTrope they are sorta like]] [[BizarreAlienBiology aliens]]...

* In ''[[{{Literature/MGP}} Magical Girl Policy]]'', many characters have strange hair colors, and very few people find anything off about this.



* The hero of the Anime-inspired online serial ''[[Literature/MGP Magical Girl Policy]]'' finds the rainbow spectrum of hair colors common in Kessia City to be completely odd but the locals think it's a normal to the extent that they even have color designations like bluenette for blue, emerelde for green, violette for purple, and scarlette for blood red. At one point Rob meets a cheerleader with snow white hair and muses to himself about what they might call that. He dismisses the first name he comes up with (whitehead) for good reason.

* In Mushoku Tensei, this is a staple for the demon/magical races, such as the Supards, like Ruijerd, that have green hair, and the Migurds, like Roxy and Lara, that have actual blue hair.
** Badi and Atofe have purple and blue hair, respectively, and kishirika has pink hair.
** Sylphy has green hair as well, but that's because of the Laplace reincarnation factor, which she shares with Rudeus, but in his case he gained extreme magic potential and the inability to use touki.
*** Sieg also has has green hair, but that's probably hereditary
** Also of note is the Dragon Tribe, like Orsted and Perugius, whose individuals have silver hair and golden eyes.

* Like with the [[VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga games]] everyone in ''Literature/QuantumDevilSagaAvatarTuner'' have all kinds of hair colors ranging from silver to pink, green and red. This ends up leading to some confusion regarding Sera where her black hair is completely unheard of.

*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Due to the elevated {{mana}} levels in Tariatla compared to Threa, humans can be born with any kind of hair color. It has to do with [[ThePowersThatBe Lady Chaos']] influence increasing the genetic variation in hair pigments. Indeed, Ginger Hasina is shocked that people from Threa ''can't'' have blue hair.
