Often, especially in anime, the main character of a work is a light-skinned male with short, black hair, sometimes to the point where they are cardboard cut-outs with different art styles or small distinguishing features.


Examples:

Anime & Manga
  • Luffy from One Piece is an example of this. His scar is his only distinguishing facial feature.
  • Sho Kazamatsuri from Whistle! has dark brown hair that looks almost black. The manga, being black-and-white, makes it look black.
  • Amano Yukiteru from Future Diary has slightly longer, but still short, black hair.
  • Kiyo Takamine from Zatch Bell! is another example.
  • Depending on the definition of "short", Gon Freecs from Hunter X Hunter could be considered an example.
  • Rin Okumura from Blue Exorcist is a very good example in that, drawn differently, he could be drawn as Kiyo, Luffy, and many others.
  • Yusuke Urameshi from Yuyu Hakusho, although with a more unique hairstyle.
  • Ryoma Echizen from The Prince Of Tennis is yet another example.
  • Although his hair is too long for most of the series, Kenzo Tenma from Monster is an example at the beginning.
  • Beet from Beet the Vandel Buster is an example with a different hairstyle.

Comic Books
  • Superman, obviously.
  • Bruce Wayne is another example.
  • Bruce Banner
  • Tony Stark

Literature
  • Harry Potter, but his glasses and scar are good at covering it up.
