* The orks of ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'' are naturally bald, so they use hair-squig implants (a small voracious creature with a colorful furry rear end that bites onto the scalp). In ''DawnOfWar'' it's even used as a team color spot.

* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', the moon elves of Faerun commonly have white, silver, or bright blue hair and blue-tinted skin, while the gold elves (also called sun elves) may have metallic golden hair and golden eyes. Plus, the bizarre hair, eye, and skin colors of half-dragons and dragonblooded characters, who are descended from dragons ColorCodedCharacters (red, green, blue, black, white), or of various planar nonhuman races like the Genasi, who are the offspring of elementals and humanoids. To be fair, ''Dungeons & Dragons'' is [[AWizardDidIt a fantasy setting]] and most of these listed races are just that: [[MassiveRaceSelection different races]], i.e not even ([[InterspeciesRomance entirely]]) [[MixedAncestry human in the first place]]. This can be transmitted to their half-human children and persist for generations.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has a [[MassiveRaceSelection wide range]] of humanoid and [[InterspeciesRomance mostly-human]] player races, so this trope frequently comes into play.

* This is fairly common in ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}''. People from the West often have blue, green, or purple hair, people in the East have green hair, Southerners have red hair (not red hair as in what our world calls orange hair, RED hair)... and that's not even going into the colors of {{Half Human Hybrid}}s and people who've been exposed to excessive magic. Wyld mutations can theoretically leave someone with hair any color of the rainbow (or, for that matter, with rainbow hair). Abyssal Exalted are often {{White Haired Pretty Boy}}s (orGirls)... the list goes on.

* There's an offhand mention in the ''TabletopGame/GeistTheSinEaters'' corebook in the entry for [[Splat The Stricken]] of a girl with Green hair. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] here because her hair was originally normal, but turned green shortly before she [[DeathByOriginStory died]] due to copper poisoning in the water supply. After she [[BackFromtheDead came back]] it stayed on as a mark of her death. Part of the point of the line is that similar things could be the case for other Sin-Eaters, including the main characters.
