[[quoteright:340:[[Literature/{{Cinderella}} http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_abbottcinderella_4233.jpg]]]]

The character is a blonde. Therefore, obviously, she is {{beaut|yEqualsGoodness}}iful, [[IncorruptiblePurePureness good]], young, and [[TheIngenue innocent]]. Sweet, wholesome, kind, and feminine tend to be included, and the innocence can range up to VirginPower. If she fights, it's reluctantly and she tends to avoid violence where she can.

Victorian literature would also use it to portray her as delicate and fragile, if not actually the IllGirl--being, of course, TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth. This part is largely a DiscreditedTrope. (The only trace of this in RealLife is that blonde hair tends to be a feature of younger people--it tends to darken to 'mousy' brown or turn reddish throughout the bearer's early life.)

Men falling under this trope are [[BlondGuysAreEvil rarer]], but the blond hero can also have Hair of Gold. Such a hero is more action-oriented than the Hair of Gold heroine, but he is also [[TheHero good]], wholesome, kind to those weaker than himself, [[ThinkNothingOfIt modest]], and prone to be the ChasteHero or CelibateHero.

Often paired with InnocentBlueEyes.

All inversions belong in BlondesAreEvil. Also compare the popular and fun-loving EveryoneLovesBlondes.

'''NOTE:''' Not all blondes belong in this list. Not even all good blondes. If the character does not match the personality type, she does not have Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold and should be listed only if she exploits the expectation.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* A number of examples in ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'':
** Fate Testarossa who, even during her tenure as a DarkMagicalGirl, was depicted to be kind and innocent to the point of {{Love Martyr}}dom. She then grows up to become the most LawfulGood character in the series.
** Carim Gracia in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'' has lush golden hair and is one of the {{Big Good}}s of the series and the honorable leader of the Church Knights, with the Saint Church being pretty much the only [[SaintlyChurch infallibly good authority]] left in the series.
** Vivio, also of ''[=StrikerS=]'', is a [[CheerfulChild young, cheerful]], MysteriousWaif adopted by the main character and the aforementioned Fate.
** In ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaViVid'', the last Saint [[SheIsTheKing King]] of Belka, Olivie Sägebrecht ([[spoiler:whose clone Vivio happens to be]]), is described to have been "bright as the sun, and subtle as a flower".
* ''Manga/SoulEater'' has a very interesting version with its girls: Maka Albarn's blond hair has hints of silver (and she is the wisest), Liz Thompson has a caramel blond coloring (she is the most jaded, though remains optimistic), and Patti Thompson has cornsilk coloring and is the sweetest and most idealistic of the three (most of the time). Then again, there is Marie Mjolnir. Justin Law at first seems to follow this, being a chaste [[spoiler:(or so we think)]] young death scythe. [[BlondGuysAreEvil Unfortunately]]...
* In ''Manga/{{Stretch}}'', Ran fits this quite nicely; although she teases Keiko a lot, that's just the way the dynamic between the two women works. Although the manga is black-and-white, the title pages to each chapter are in colour, and show Ran as having blonde hair.
* ''Anime/ProjectAKo'': C-ko, who is a strawberry blonde, was described in one of the original Japanese promos as "innocence personified".
* Not even a demon can find much fault in Elizabeth in ''Manga/BlackButler'', even if she ''did'' probably [[spoiler:lose any VirginPower she might have had.]]
* ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' has Tamaki, a boy who has a very optimistic view on life, despite his own past and present hardships. He tries to see the good in people and, like a true romantic, thinks every woman is beautiful in her own way. Despite him being TheCharmer, his views on love are quite innocent and old fashioned. Honey would fit this trope as well, especially considering he even LOOKS a lot like a child, although he's actually the [[OlderThanTheyLook oldest]] of the Hosts. He also carries around a bunny plushie and has a love for sweets--cake in particular.
%% * Lucy Heartfilia from ''Manga/FairyTail''.
* In ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' Vento of the Front is an interesting case, since her appearance is described as that of a holy virgin, but is ruined by her [[ObviouslyEvil self-presentation]].
* Reinhard von Lohengramm in ''Anime/LegendOfGalacticHeroes'' subverts this trope beautifully: he's certainly an [[{{Bishounen}} angelic-looking young man]], he's viewed by people as a [[KnightInShiningArmor perfect hero]] but his methods firmly place him into the AntiHero territory. His sister Annerose, though, is a straight example.
* Alibaba from ''Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic'' starts out as somewhat of a subversion, with greed and ass-kissing being his primary traits, but later chapters reveal his kindhearted and good nature. He goes on to become an AllLovingHero for his home country and continues to get stronger for the sake of the entire world.
* Kotori from ''Manga/{{X 1999}}'' has flowing golden locks in the manga. Her design seems to be inspired from Victorian aesthetics--a sweet, innocent, IllGirl who is kind beyond measure and associated with white birds and feathers as symbols of purity.
* Mugi in ''Manga/KOn'' is SpoiledSweet, generous and cheerful. Also naive at times.
* Shinku/Cinque from ''Anime/DogDays'' is upbeat, kind and always has a smile on his face. Overall a very NiceGuy.
* Ada from ''Anime/PandoraHearts'' is a sweet girl who loves cats and wants nothing more than to bring her brother back from [[EldritchLocation the Abyss]]. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Turns out]] she was ''so'' inspired to rescue Oz that she did research into the occult and became [[NightmareFetishist quite fascinated with it]], so much so that she managed to freak out ''[[SoftspokenSadist Vincent]]'', of all people.]]
* This trope even exists in the light-hearted GagSeries ''Manga/DailyLivesOfHighSchoolBoys''. Yoshitake is blond and is the single person of the cast who subscribes the most in TrueCompanions.
* Franchise/SailorMoon herself tends to fit the trope most of the time, and despite her flaws, she is a good-hearted person who believes that she can work through every problem she faces to make the best situation for everyone.
* Mami from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', the kindhearted, feminine TeamMom of the group. [[DeconstructorFleet But, of course]], she's a subversion: she's also very lonely and depressed, and angsty over the accident that killed her parents. And she takes GoodIsNotSoft to excessive levels. [[spoiler:In one timeline, after learning that magical girls eventually become witches, she decides [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled they all need to die before they become monsters]] and ''kills Kyoko on the spot'', forcing Madoka to take her out before she does the same to Homura.]]
* Goku, Gohan, Future Trunks, and Goten from ''Manga/DragonBall'', when in [[SuperMode Super Saiyan]] form.
** This only applies to Saiyans who are both naturally kind and docile in their base form ''and'' successfully mastered the Super Saiyan form. Goku when he first ascended and especially Gohan a Super Saiyan 2 both subvert this by regressing into a far more ruthless and even sadistic state of mind.
** Mrs. Brief, Bulma's mother, also qualifies. Sure, she's a DumbBlonde, but she's a polite, good-natured woman.
** Inverted for [[SplitPersonality Lunch]]. Her blue-haired side is sweet, but her blonde-haired side becomes a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
* Yellow from ''Manga/PokemonSpecial''. She's sweet-tempered and quite a bit of a MartialPacifist, not to mention a FriendToAllLivingThings as well. She's also the youngest out of the Kanto Dex Holders and is rather [[OlderThanTheyLook physically small for her age]].
* Krista from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', who is young and pretty and is easily the most traditionally 'good', chivalrous, and [[TheIngenue caring]] character in the whole series. It's even deconstructed a little--her drive to be a good girl turns downright martyr-like at times in the worst possible ways.
** Armin is a more downplayed example; he's comparatively a NonActionGuy, the sensitive guy in his SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan combo, and is genuinely kind and caring towards his teammates especially in the beginning. Also subverted later on as he grows more and more into a ConsummateLiar {{Chessmaster}} role. As a bonus, both of these characters have InnocentBlueEyes.
* Princess Emeraude of ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'' has [[OlderThanTheyLook the appearance of a young girl]] and is charged with upholding the eternal peace of the land of Cephiro through her prayer. During the story, she's often weeping TenderTears at the thought of her land falling into ruin and guides the PowerTrio through a SecretTestOfCharacter. [[spoiler:Even when she turns evil, it's from heartbreak over the death of her true love, and she begs the girls to kill her--which had been her intention all along, as she would rather die than end up destroying Cephiro.]]
* ''Anime/RuneSoldierLouie'': Melissa is a priestess of the Mylee faith, who longed for the chance to serve [[KnightInShiningArmor a noble and just champion of the people]], and do great deeds by his side. Instead, fate chose [[IdiotHero Louie]] for her. Regardless, she remained true to the path Mylee set forth for her, though it was [[RunningGag against her will.]] So much so, that she refused to desert Louie during a cave-in and remained at his side, despite his insistence that she leave for her own safety. They eventually exit the cave together, [[KarmicProtection both completely unharmed.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Ballads]]
* In the Literature/{{Child Ballad|s}} ''Literature/SirAldingar'', one variant describes the innocent queen's hair as yellow:
-->''They've putten her into prison strang,\\
A twalmon lang and mair,\\
Until the mice and wild rattens\\
Did tear her yallow hair.''
* "[[http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/eng/child/ch010.htm The Twa Sisters]]" Literature/{{Child Ballad|s}} has a beautiful and innocent blond girl murdered by her evil sister. A harp is made of her bones, and her golden hair is used for the strings. The magic harp sings out an accusation of her murderer.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comics]]
* Shelly in ''ComicBook/TheCrow'' is a blonde (which may surprise fans who only know the Brandon Lee film in which Shelly was a brunette and suitably goth-ish partner to the film's characterisation of Eric as an indie rock guitarist), whose beauty, purity, good-heartedness and innocence are constantly emphasised.
* In ''ComicStrip/NonSequitur'', the blond Kate is the more optimistic and less ambitious {{Foil}} to her black-haired sister, Danae.
* In ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'', Charlie Brown's little sister, Sally, fits this trope. When he accused her of "evading responsibility" by trying to avoid kindergarten, she responded with, "I don't know what you're talking about... I'm too young and innocent."
* ComicBook/MillieTheModel is nice, young, and innocent, especially compared to her FieryRedhead rival, Chili Storm.
* It's hard to tell because the comics are [[DeliberatelyMonochrome largely black and white]], but Nancy Callahan of ''ComicBook/SinCity'' is canonically blonde. A young woman working herself through law school by working as a topless exotic dancer off hours, she's probably the kindest and most innocent character in the comics (WordOfGod calls her "an angel" living in a WretchedHive). She's acquainted with a lot of the major characters, who protect her from abusive or downright evil men out to hurt her.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fairy Tales]]
* "Literature/{{Goldilocks}}" combines both the innocence and the [[DumbBlonde folly]] associated with blond hair.
* "[[http://www.mythfolklore.net/andrewlang/038.htm The Grateful Beasts]]" has a blond hero.
-->''The youngest of the three brothers, whose name was Ferko, was a beautiful youth, with a splendid figure, blue eyes, fair hair, and a complexion like milk and roses.''
* The eponymous heroine of ''Literature/{{Rhodopis}}'' is fair-skinned with hair that is described as golden and curly, which makes her look out of place as a Greek slave in Egypt, as well as kind-hearted and friendly with animals. It's because of this that she's discriminated against and ordered around by the servant girls in the household she works in, who are native Egyptian in contrast.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* [[PrincessClassic Pricess Aurora]] from ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' is kind, friendly, polite and generous, and was blessed with the gift of beauty, which includes sunshine golden hair.
* Played straight with Rapunzel in ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', as she is sweet, kind and innocent. [[spoiler:Subverted when we find out she is actually a natural brunette when her hair gets cut off.]]
* Miguel from ''WesternAnimation/TheRoadToElDorado'' is a male version, despite being a thief for a living. His lack of actual innocence is made up for by his genuine sweetness and optimism about the world in general. Overall he's a really good person who isn't above using puppy eyes to get his way.
* Subverted, as pretty much all other fairy tale tropes, with the ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' series. Prince Charming has blonde hair, a rugged masculine appearance and seems to be the bold hero. But, it turns out he is an extremely vain, self-centered, spoiled boy who turns out to be the BigBad in ''ShrekTheThird''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Ann Darrow in both the original and Peter Jackson remake of ''Film/KingKong''.
* Following the frequent book descriptions as "fair-haired", in the 2003 and 2005 film adaptations of ''PrideAndPrejudice'', the prettiest (and [[WideEyedIdealist most innocent]]) Bennet daughter, Jane, is a blonde. She isn't a blonde in the 1940s film, though.
* In ''Film/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'', Johanna is ''definitely'' one of these, fitting the innocent, [[TheIngenue child-womanish]] category almost to a T. Johanna got this from her mother, Lucy, who is described by Sweeney as "beautiful" and "virtuous" at the start of the whole thing, if something of a "silly little nit" according to Mrs. Lovett. Of course, in the stage play, [[spoiler:Johanna gets one of the two kills that Sweeney doesn't get when she guns down the asylum keeper Jonas Fogg]].
* Captain America of ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', who is also a shining example of IncorruptiblePurePureness.
* Amy Kane (Creator/GraceKelly) in ''Film/HighNoon''. Initially portrayed as innocent and naive, she proves to be the only person willing to help her husband fight the villains.
* ''Film/StarWars'':
** Luke Skywalker, of course! Idealistic and able to see the goodness in most everyone, [[AllLovingHero this personality trait]] is pointed out fairly often in the ExpandedUniverse and a ''lot'' in fanfic. [[note]] His four known descendants, however ([[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ben_Skywalker two]] [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Kol_Skywalker redheaded]], [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Nat_Skywalker two]] [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Cade_Skywalker blond]]), decidedly don't fit this trope and, instead, wear JadeColoredGlasses. [[IncrediblyLamePun Just like the other half of Ben's parentage]]. [[/note]]
** Luke's father, Anakin Skywalker, starts out as a good/-hearted blond in ''ThePhantomMenace''. However, by the time of the Mustafar duel in ''RevengeOfTheSith'', he's switched to BlondGuysAreEvil. Of course, it's not there for good, soon to be replaced with [[BaldofEvil Bald (and Scarred) of Evil]].
* Manon of ''[[Film/ManonDesSources Manon of the Spring]]'' (''Manon des Sources'') is proud, beautiful, and no man's fool--but she is also good-natured at heart and righteous. Her role, in juxtaposition to the other characters, is basically purity personified.
* Rosemary in ''Film/ShallowHal'' is kind and generous with attractive inner beauty.
* In the movie ''Dear John'', Savannah is naive, kind, and morally upstanding. A case of AdaptationalDyeJob because she was a brunette in the book.
* {{Jesus}} in some film depictions, despite him being from the Middle East. See his portrayals in ''King Of Kings'' and ''JesusChristSuperstar''.
* Kim in ''Film/EdwardScissorhands'' is a DoubleSubversion. She's first seen in a family photo where Peg describes her as her pride and joy. When we meet Kim, however, she seems like a bratty teenager. But as the film goes on and she warms to Edward, she is really kind and caring, thus fitting the trope.
* Katrina in ''Film/SleepyHollow'' is an example from Tim Burton's movies, complete with an [[WickedStepmother evil blonde foil]]. She is kind and guides the hero through the weird town. Although Burton is most associated with the EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette look, it appears he has some fondness for blondes as well.
* Tim Burton's ''Film/AliceInWonderland''. Alice is adult and returned to Wonderland. She's a good and heroic variety of blondes.
%% * Casey Welson in ''Film/TheCall''.
* Pretty much any character played by Annasophia Robb, but especially her roles in ''BridgeToTerabithia'' and ''Film/TheWayWayBack''.
** Averted with her role as Violet Beauregarde in "Charlie and The Chocolate Factory" when she was notably nastier than her book counterpart and stood out compared to the other child actors, claiming that she will always be a winner, calling Charlie a "loser" at one point, and showing off as she leaves the factory by cartwheeling.
* Virginal Winifred Goodman in ''Film/LemonadeJoe'' has long fair hair and she's very sweet wholesome all-american girl, and admired by many. The villainous Horace Badman alias Hogo Fogo uses her good heart and compassion. He's disguised as an old blind man and [[DamselInDistress kidnaps her]]. It's part of his plan to bring down her fiancé Lemonade Joe, and he has [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty his private plans]] with Winifred.
-->'''Doug Badman:''' [[EvenEvilHasStandards It makes me sick]] whenever I think about that dirty trick of yours with that pure and innocent girl.
-->'''Horace Badman:''' Purity and innocence? What goodies for a pervert of ''my'' calibre!
* Kvetuska from ''Film/AdeleHasntHadHerDinnerYet'' is the classical [[TheIngenue Ingenue]]. She lives with her old grandfather who she takes good care of. She very naive and innocent, and she and Nick Carter (America's greatest detective) fall in LoveAtFirstSight. When Nick needs her help and asks her if she's a brave girl, she answers with determined "I am a daughter of Jan Zizka's nation", referring to a great military leader from the Hussite Movement.
* Grace in ''Short Term 12''. A sort of female [[TheShawshankRedemption Andy Dufresne]] who bucks the system in order to help the troubled orphans whom only she seems to truly understand (due to her having been one herself).
* Lucy in ''Film/AcrossTheUniverse''. A peace activist during the Vietnam War, she turns on her fellow activists when they become violent.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* In Creator/CSLewis' ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'', the innocent Lucy, who first finds Narnia and is closest to Aslan, is described (near the end of the first novel) as having blond hair. However, the illustrations by Pauline Baynes show her with black hair and pigtails. The only adaptation that actually has her as a blonde is the 1970s animated film.
* In ''The Clique'' novels, Claire Lyons has light blonde hair and is the nicest member of the Pretty Commitee.
* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': Hair color is no guarantee of characterization, but the trope is referenced when a bard writes a propagandized ballad about the Battle of Blackwater. The lyrics make a big deal of the handsome, young, golden-haired prince and equally golden-haired mother going up against his wicked, black-haired uncle.
** Prince Tommen and Princess Myrcella play this trope straight.
** Averted with their older brother [[BlondGuysAreEvil Joffery]] in a nice contrast.
** Exploited by Tyene Sand along with InnocentBlueEyes. She's described as beautiful, sweet, and pious-looking, and you'll believe that right until you realize she's already [[MasterPoisoner poisoned you]].
* Evangeline in ''Literature/UncleTomsCabin'' has golden hair and is an angelic mouthpiece for the author's anti-slavery message. For extra points, she's TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth.
* ''Literature/LittleLordFauntleroy'' is famous for the titular character's blond, curly hair. He's a sweet but a bit precocious boy who lives up to his aristocratic heritage and his family expectations.
* In the ''Literature/TheDemonPrinces'', Alusz Iphigenia Eperje-Tokay has dusty blond hair and GrayEyes. She's beautiful, intelligent, gently bred and fatalistic.
* Emma Woodhouse of Creator/JaneAusten's ''Literature/{{Emma}}'' is interested in befriending a girl of lower social standing than herself, Harriet Smith, specifically because of Harriet's beauty. Harriet has Hair of Gold and big InnocentBlueEyes, and her nature is very sweet, timid and affectionate. She's glad that so great a lady as Emma notices her and happily lets Emma lead and guide her.
* In ''Literature/GoblinMarket'', Laura's golden hair is a key part of the plot, because she buys fruit with "a golden curl" rather than with actual money. Using her hair this way leads to the loss of innocence (and, metaphorically, her virginity).
* Most of Creator/JRRTolkien's elves are dark-haired, so the golden ones stand out, and it tends to be symbolic. In ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', this is the hallmark of the Houses of Ingwë and Finarfin, and they are of the High Elven houses the wisest, kindest, least rash, and (in the case of the Exiles) most friendly and helpful to mortals. One of those (Galadriel) even survived long enough to appear in ''Literature/LordOfTheRings''.
** Ingwë, and his people (the Vanyar) in general, are noted as the wisest and most holy of the High Elves. They live exclusively in [[PhysicalHeaven Valinor]] itself. Every one of them chose to come to Valinor instead of staying behind in Middle-earth, and only a small handful joined the rebellion of the Noldor. Which is why they get the least page-time of the three clans.
** Of the Noldorin royalty, Finarfin's family are the wisest, and he was the only major character who quit the rebellion and returned to Valinor to humbly ask the Valar for pardon before it was too late. Thus, they made him king of what was left of his people. His kids all continued with the rebellion but were the most reluctant to participate (other than Galadriel, who was just itching to leave).
** Galadriel's hair is literally luminescent, and said to have been like "a mesh of gold" with the light of Laurelin (a holy golden tree that served as a precursor to the sun) bound up in it. Her part in the Fall of the Noldor changed as Tolkien's concept of her character evolved--in most versions she's a leader of the rebellion and more eager than her brothers to leave Valinor. Later, Tolkien decided she was entirely innocent of any wrongdoing, and [[AuthorExistenceFailure planned to]] change the stories to say she didn't participate in the rebellion, but only happened to leave Valinor at the same time.
** Averted with Celegorm the Fair, the only one of the seven sons of Fëanor to have blond hair, and quite possibly the worst of them.
* Maybeth, the third sibling in ''Literature/TheTillermanFamilySeries'' by Cynthia Voigt, is practically angelic by description, both in personality and appearance.
* ''Literature/LesMiserables'':
** Fantine is noted for her beauty and particularly her long, angelic golden hair. She is presented as the model of motherly virtue, and at the beginning of her transition to BrokenBird she sells her beautiful hair to provide for her daughter Cosette.
** Cosette herself is described as brunette in the text, but in the musical and other adaptations is often played by a blonde actress because of this trope.
** Enjolras has Hair Of Gold and is explicitly a ChasteHero.
* Lucy Westenra in the novel ''Literature/{{Dracula}}'' is blonde. Dr Seward makes a reference to her hair lying on her pillow in "sunny ripples", but after she becomes an evil vampire eyewitnesses describe her as having dark hair.
* Little Eldie Porter in ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', five years old and [[spoiler:entirely innocent in her parents' scheming]]. It does get [[DyeOrDie dyed black]] by the end.
* Prim and Mrs. Everdeen in ''Literature/TheHungerGames''. Prim is a compassionate young blonde girl with blue eyes. She loves all living creatures. She was also a good healer at an early age, often helping her mother with patients. When Katniss leaves her family she doesn't bother suggesting that Prim learn to hunt because her attempts were disastrous. The woods terrified her and whenever Katniss shot something it would make Prim teary and she'd talk about how they might be able to heal it. Katniss is always amazed when her mother brought a wounded or sick patient: "she morphs from someone who calls her daughter to kill a spider to a woman immune to fear", Katniss says.
* Both Laurana and Goldmoon in the ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'' books are naive but kind beautiful blond princesses (elf and barbarian human, respectively). The former especially was naive and sheltered to the point of being an airhead while the latter was actually worshipped as a goddess by her tribe. They both grew out of it into an ActionGirl and MessianicArchetype, respectively.
* Susan, Roland's [[TheLostLenore Lost Lenore]], in ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'', has blond hair. She's 16, innocent and noble. About the only thing we know about her appearance other than her [[InformedAttractiveness beauty]] is that she has long blond hair. The villain of her story tries to hypnotize her into cutting it all off.
%% * In ''Literature/{{Once Upon A Winters Night}}'', the main heroine has this trope.
* ''Literature/SongAtDawn'': Much is made of Alis' blond hair and 'Daddy's little angel' often follows it. She also has a frail constitution.
* ''Literature/AnnaKarenina'': Kitty is a beautiful, kind and feminine girly girl, greatly admired in society for her beauty and grace. When she gets disappointed in love by her suitor, she becomes an IllGirl, but her parents take her to a spa and she recovers.
* In ''Gelsomino in Land of Liars'', Gelsomino's golden hair corresponds with his character: sweet, kind-hearted and generally helpful. This is contrasted with BigBad Jakomone, [[spoiler: whose golden hair is fake]].
* Clover from ''Literature/{{Entwined}}'' is blond and in no short supply of suitors and can barely say a bad word about someone.
* [[TheCaptain Werner Von Ebrannac]] in the WorldWarII novella ''Literature/LeSilenceDeLaMer'' is a soft-spoken Francophile FriendToAllChildren with naive hopes of amity with his unwilling French hosts who ends up suffering [[spoiler: a HeelRealisation]].
* In ''Literature/WhiteAsSnow'', Coira dreams that her real mother is a beautiful young blonde woman who is kind and gentle and loving. She imagines that this woman died and [[IceQueen Arpazia]] took her place.
* In ''Literature/RachelGriffin'', Nastasia Romanov, Princess of Magical Australia, is a gracious, gentle, ladylike, dutiful and kind PrincessClassic, with [[LongHairIsFeminine very long]] ash-blond hair.
* In "Literature/TheWeeFreeMen", Tiffany Aching, who has brown hair and brown eyes, notices that in the book of fairy tales her mother read to her, all the princesses and "good" characters had blond hair and blue eyes (or possibly red hair and green eyes), and that the best you could hope for otherwise was to be an inkeeper or a maid--or a witch.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Kenneth Parcel from ''Series/ThirtyRock'' is a male example. He's innocent, idealistic, loves everyone, and shows IncorruptiblePurePureness all throughout the series.
* All three daughters on ''Series/TheBradyBunch'' have "...hair of gold, like their mother". This is because the four are the innocent girls, while all the boys have dark brown/black hair (they even colored Mike Lookinland's hair from its natural reddish for the first season).
* Diane Chambers of ''Series/{{Cheers}}''. During her years at the bar, she's essentially the NiceGirl and a WideEyedIdealist who cares--deeply--for the others.
* Don "Doc" Dogoier of ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' stands out among his crew of pirates for being kind, gentle, shy, cheerful, and peace-loving--even more so than supposed TokenGoodTeammate (and dark-haired) Ahim, who has proven herself to have a devious side that Don doesn't share.
* In Victorian flashbacks, ''Series/{{Sanctuary}}'''s Helen Magnus has long, curly blond hair. She's also more soft-spoken, cheerful, and younger (obviously) than in the present. Sometime after [[spoiler:discovering that her fiancé is Jack the Ripper and being contracted by the Crown to kill Adam Worth]], she goes brunette. She also has red hair during World War II.
* Henry VIII sees Jane Seymour as this in ''Series/TheTudors''. In season 3, it becomes clear she has a little more depth, but Henry reacts aggresively to any indication that she doesn't agree with him. [[spoiler:When she returns briefly in season 4, she's the only ghost Henry seems happy to see. Unfortunately for him, she is not as meek as before.]]
* ''Series/TheNewNormal'' has Goldie, a straight ally to gay couple David and Bryan. She stands up to her bigoted grandmother for them, and carries their baby.
* Gabrielle in ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'', Xena's faithful companion and friend, even to the point where her hair got darker for a while as her character became less innocent.
* [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold Cassiopeia]] in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Classic}}'', who decides to abandon her life as a Socialator to become a Med Tech. Other than her past life, she is sweet and kind, often looks after Boxey and even takes care of an ill-ridden Adama in "The Young Lords".
* Despite being a CowboyCop who along with his partner seems to [[TheCasanova get around]], [[Series/StarskyAndHutch Ken Hutchinson]] fits the bill as a male example. Jokes were made about his hair, too--mainly by Starsky.
* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS20E6TheKingsDemons The King's Demons]]'', Hugh has this--a young knight valiant in his defense of his father.
* ''Series/TheXFiles'': The SerialKiller in the episode "Elegy" targets very young and beautiful women who have blond hair and who were very kind. They were all friends with a mentally handicapped man who was in love with them.
* ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'' has had three female characters that fit this mold.
** The first was Emma Nelson, who was a trusting SoapboxSadie nature lover until reality happened and she fell off the path. She fit up until Season 3 or 4, when she suddenly went to all sorts of impure, corrupt places and it went downhill from there.
** Then came Maya Matlin, a cute innocent band geek. She still mostly fits the mold but she's shown to have some bite to her when pushed, but her intentions stay mostly good. And it didn't take much to put her back on track.
** The writers played with this when Becky Baker was introduced, the faithful Christian. She's a "playing with" example because several of her actions qualify as bigoted and evil, but at the same time her intentions were pure, just her reasoning and understanding was misguided. Once she learned better, she's just as optimistic and innocent as ever.
* Despite working for years in the worst slums of London's East End, ''Series/CallTheMidwife'''s young, lovely, devoted, soft-spoken Sister Bernadette remains as kind and hopeful as ever, her spirit shining as brightly as her seldom-seen golden hair. After enduring a crisis of faith over her calling when she falls in love with local physician Dr Turner, she comes out of it [[spoiler:radiantly in love and determined to continue serving God as a wife, mother, and midwife]].
* Lucrezia in ''Series/TheBorgias'' starts out this way, although between her [[BreakTheCutie abusive first marriage]] and [[CorruptTheCutie scheming family]] it doesn't last.
* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'':
** Anna Fulford is a very young and very beautiful blonde with curly hair. She intuitively recognized that Detective Murdoch (suffering from IdentityAmnesia) is a good man, even though he was pursued by men who claimed he's a killer, and she decided to help him. She's a bit livelier that this archetype tends to be but she fits the trope very well.
** Mrs Enid Jones is very young, beautiful, and generally sweet and kind. She looks very timid and feminine, but she can take a good care of herself and her son. She has curly blond hair.
* Jessica and Mary in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' have long blonde hair. Both of these women are killed off in the Pilot, and the loss of these kind loved characters serves as motivation for Sam and Dean to hunt demons.

[[folder:Music]]
* The girl described in Music/EricClapton's "Wonderful Tonight" (actually his then-wife, and muse, Pattie Boyd).
-->''She puts on her makeup and brushes her long blond hair...''
* In the Pentangle song "Cruel Sister", the good, innocent sister who is "loved above all things" by the prince is repeatedly described as having bright golden hair. Her evil sister is repeatedly described as having black hair and being cold and dark. The story is taken from a Literature/{{Child Ballad|s}} called [[http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/eng/child/ch010.htm "The Twa Sisters".]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Musical Theater]]
* Kendra from ''Theatre/{{Thirteen}}'' fits this because she's very trusting, [[spoiler:though it doesn't work out for her]], [[DumbBlonde although she can be quite ditzy at times...]]
* Audrey from ''Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors'', a lovable DumbBlonde.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Mythology]]
* [[GreekMythology Demeter]]. She is about the only non-jerkass in the Olympian Pantheon. And explicitly described as a blonde. (Wheat-blond; after all, she's the corn goddess)
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Puppet Shows]]
* Naive, innocent Wembley, the youngest member of ''Series/FraggleRock'''s FiveManBand, has yellow hair.
* Janice from ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' can fit under here as well, as she is kind and laid back.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Noel Vermillion from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue''. Beautiful, [[TheCutie innocent,]] [[ShrinkingViolet and shy]]? Check, check, and check. [[BreakTheCutie The world wants to crush her beneath its heel?]] [[TheWoobie So, so much.]]
* Enforced by the character morphing system of ''[[VideoGame/FableI Fable]]'': climbing to the good end of the KarmaMeter turns the Hero's hair from chestnut brown to platinum blond.
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''
** Aria Bennett, one of the {{Guest Star Party Member}}s in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII''. She's a priestess of the water crystal, a WomanInWhite, and a WhiteMage. Whenever you talk to her, she says very nice things about how the party is blessed with the light.
** Krile of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' is a cute and sweet young girl who is a FriendToAllLivingThings with the ability to [[SpeaksFluentAnimal speak to them]]. She can also communicate with benevolent ghosts and plays the medium for her friends. [[spoiler:She also becomes the youngest member of the party.]]
** Beautiful, young, good, and innocent? That's Amano's concept of [[TheHeroine Terra/Tina]] from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' all over (the sprite gave her [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair green hair]] instead--the cutscenes of [[UpdatedRerelease the PS1 rerelease]] and ''{{Dissidia}}'' [[AdaptationDyeJob goes back to blonde]]), and applies to a lesser extent to [[{{Foil}} Celes as well]]. And [[BrattyHalfPint Relm]] (she really is a sweet girl, deep down... Really really deep down). Next tier has the heroic male characters [[ChivalrousPervert Edgar]], [[TheBigGuy Sabin/Mash]], and [[ChronicHeroSyndrome Locke]], who was originally conceptualized with blond hair. If you really wanted, you could argue that [[WorthyOpponent General Leo]] fits this, though he really shines as a {{subverted|Trope}} BlondGuysAreEvil, foiling the blond Kefka. The world of ''Final Fantasy VI'' has no CanonName, but we have reason to believe it's Blondania.
** VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII: Cloud Strife. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in that he comes with a strong vein of AntiHero and [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Jerk]] to temper [[HiddenHeartOfGold said gold]]. [[spoiler:DoubleSubverted when it turns out he's not what he ([[WhamEpisode and we]]) thought he was.]]
** [[GodOfGood Cosmos]] from ''DissidiaFinalFantasy'' and its prequel. As part of her image as a deity of harmony, she is kind, beautiful, and vaguely motherly.
* Ventus from ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep''. Blond hair, [[InnocentBlueEyes bright blue eyes]], and a [[TheIngenue personality to match.]] [[spoiler:{{Justified| Trope}}, however, since the darkness in his heart was taken by [[BigBad Master]] [[BadassGrandpa Xehanort]].]]
* Lucas from ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' has gold hair, an innocent personality, a pure mind, and, [[spoiler:unlike Claus, stays good. Claus' hair, orange, could possibly be that way because of red (evil) mixing with blonde (purity)]].
* Another male example: [[spoiler:Teddie]] from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' [[spoiler:in his human form, where he appears as a blond, [[InnocentBlueEyes blue-eyed]] {{Bishonen}}.]] Despite being [[CasanovaWannabe very perverted and flirtatious]], he cares a great deal about his friends.
* Bianca from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' is pretty, kind, heroic, and idealistic.
* Spiritia Rosenberg from ''VideoGame/{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' has flowing gold hair held in a huge ponytail and is a straightforward, honest, and kind girl whose moral convictions are second to none and who is greatly respected by others, including other soldiers of the Holy Empire. Iris also has gold hair, [[spoiler:but unlike Tia, believe it or not, she only pretends to be kind and innocent to disguise her true, evil intentions]]. Both characters are [[spoiler:reincarnations of the legendary Magus Rosenkreuz, whom the organization of RKS is named after--Tia got his soul and his ability to tap into the strength of others', and Iris was blessed with his magical prowess and the abundance of knowledge he had acquired over the course of his life]].
* Wendy from ''VideoGame/RuleOfRose'' could have her picture describing this trope; a quiet, sickly little girl with a pretty smile and a blue sundress. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, she's also a manipulative {{Yandere}}]].
* ''Franchise/TalesSeries'':
** The first example in the series is Mint from ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia''. She's 90 pounds of IncorruptiblePurePureness, a shy WhiteMagicianGirl, ''and'' [[ActualPacifist completely devoted to healing]].
** Colette from ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', a [[TheFool foolish]] [[MessianicArchetype Messiah]] {{Pollyanna}} LoveFreak.
** Princess Natalia from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss''. Aside from being a bit of a snob, she's a healer and PoliticallyActivePrincess who only wants what's best for her people.
* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'': Princess Peach is constantly described as having the [[IncorruptiblePurePureness purest heart]].
* The LawfulGood [[ThePaladin Ky Kiske]] in the ''GuiltyGear'' series. Especially in the "youthfully naive, {{angst}}-ridden and clueless" department.
* TheHero from ''VideoGame/HalfMinuteHero''. His nobility earns him respect from a Time Beast (and an extra 10 seconds on a stage where you can't reverse time).
* Lady Aideen of Jungby and Father Claude of Edda from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral'': both blonde, both calm, gentle and caring.
* Lucius from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe'' is this to a T.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius'' has three blonde heron siblings:
** Leanne is sweet and ladylike but is also revealed to be stubborn and childish.
** Reyson is kind, but absorbed much of the Hawk tribe's rough personality quirks.
** Rafiel, the oldest, is as passive and serene as a heron is meant to be.
* Libra from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' may carry an axe, but he is as kind and gentle and thoughtful as a Lucius expy ought to be.
** Chrom's sisters, Lissa and Emmeryn. Emmeryn's kindness as exalt is so well-known to even outsiders like Panne. Lissa is often described as one of the nicest people around and is down-to-earth despite her status as royalty.
* Several incarnations of Princess Zelda from ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' qualify.
** Some incarnations of the hero, Link, also qualify, as well as his younger sister, [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Aryll]].
* Subverted by Vert in ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}''. On one hand, she has the requisite golden hair, many [=NPCs=] admire her grace and charm, and her subjects paint her as a good ruler. On the other, her appearance (blonde hair, blue eyes, big breasts) is a deliberate PhenotypeStereotype, she's politically aggressive ([[VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaVictory Ultradimension]] Vert is the only CPU to take shares by military action or directly convert people of interest to her side), and on a personal level she's a very open YaoiFangirl and her work ethic suffers from ''horrifying'' motivation issues.
* Kiel from ''VideoGame/RuneFactory4'' is a male example. He's a little CuteBookworm and DitzyGenius with InnocentBlueEyes and a sweet NiceGuy personality to match. His sister Forte also has blond hair and a bit of ChronicHeroSyndrome (she'll accompany the protagonist into dungeons whether she likes them or not, while everyone else in town will only go if they're your friend), but has enough of a [[SugarAndIcePersonality tough shell]] to disqualify her from the straight trope.
* Paz in ''MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'' acts exactly like this character type for 80% of the game. The last 20% reveals that she is a BitchInSheepsClothing consciously exploiting this trope for all it is worth.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'':
** Regina Berry is so sweet and innocent that [[spoiler:she actually doesn't understand the concept of death or the consequences of her naive but dangerous actions]].
** Colias Palaeno has a near-constant smile and is ridiculously friendly to everyone he meets. [[spoiler:Which is why Manny Coachen was able to manipulate him so easily.]]
* Komari from ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'' has short blonde hair with side [[GirlishPigtails twintails]] and is extremely innocent, cheerful, and childlike. Her route even deconstructs this a little, as [[spoiler:she is innocent mainly because her brother tried to shield her from anything painful, meaning that she cannot encounter things like death without breaking down entirely.]] She also has a bit of DumbBlonde to her, too.
* Deconstructed with Gilgamesh in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', who is only "Pure" in the sense that [[PureIsNotGood he has zero inhibitions]].
** Played straight with Saber.
** Averted with Illya, assuming you accept the WordOfGod that says her hair is platinum blonde, not white.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' has platinum-haired [[BadassCrew Freelancer]] Agent North Dakota, who's the closest thing the CrapsackWorld of ''[=RvB=]'' has to a 100% genuine hero. He's such a kindly and nurturing TeamMom that he even gets given the most childlike of the project's AIs, which he acts like a proud parent towards. All of this is a deliberate contrast to [[BrotherSisterTeam his twin sister]], who turns out to be [[spoiler:an [[BlondesAreEvil evil blonde]] with ChronicBackstabbingDisorder that leaves him and other Freelancers to die in various circumstances]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* Rolan and Zalanna of ''Webcomic/EarsForElves'' have this. In the former case, it shows that he's a ''high'' elf, as well as being innocent and such. For Zalanna, straight blonde hair symbolises her status and how she embraces it, and provides contrast with the RebelliousPrincess Tanna's messy and short(er) brown hair.
* His rare moments of [[spoiler:SuperpoweredEvilSide Mad Scientist]] aside, Franken from ''{{Noblesse}}'' is very kind and patient.
* [[SpoonyBard Elan]] in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' is apparently extremely attractive, in part due to this trope, although it's hard to tell from the stick-figure art. He also fits very well in terms of personality, being the sweetest and most innocent major character in the comic (as well as [[DumbBlonde not too bright]] aside from his GenreSavvy).
* [[http://www.sinfest.net/view.php?date=2009-05-03 The angels]] in ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}''. Annoying, mind you, but good.
* In ''ThistilMistilKistil'', while she is a trifle uncanny, [[http://tmkcomic.depleti.com/comic/ch06-pg03/ Sigyn is still a gentle and generous woman]].
* In ''Webcomic/{{Widdershins}}'', Wolfe is a NiceGuy, and even a good influence on Malloy.
* ''Webcomic/MagickChicks'': [[PurityPersonified Skye]] is a shy young animal telepath, who was formerly so pure of heart that [[spoiler: Hecate]] was astonished to find [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/impressive_for_a_human her soul was utterly devoid of any malice.]] Which changed when she willingly tainted her soul in order to [[spoiler: [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/consumed_by_her_power save Cerise's life]]]]; [[EasilyForgiven despite having been manipulated by her.]]
* Varden of ''Webcomic/{{Inverloch}}'' is secretly this (he dyes his hair so it doesn't show up in the dark). Although he starts off making a big deal about how he's only with them for his own convenience, he quickly comes to care about the group as friends, goes out of his way to save Acheron from a fighting ring, encourages Lei'ella to stand up to the FantasticRacism, and can get very sentimental. Notably, his transition into this comes ''with'' the reveal that his hair is really blond.
* Janet Steele in ''Webcomic/ContestJitters'' has long, blond hair, and a sweet personality.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Janine from ''WebVideo/{{Animerica}}'' symbolizes this in the purest form imaginable, making her a direct contrast not just to her LoveInterest, but to the black-haired [[ActionGirl Lita]] and the red-headed [[TheRival Malin]]. In fact, just about every blonde (except for Takuya and Shirogane) in the series symbolizes this.
* Apollo, Artemis, Aglaea, and Eros in ''ThaliasMusings''. Apollo, though hardly a ChasteHero, is one of the more moral gods in the Pantheon and renowned as a champion of moderate living. His twin sister, Artemis, is a sworn virgin. Both have healing powers, as does Aglaea, Apollo's granddaughter, who is a dedicated physician. Eros can make life difficult for his "victims", but he ultimately just wants everyone to find true love, [[{{moe}} something his parents never had]].
* Mega-Girl of the Literature/WhateleyUniverse. Not only is she a beautiful Exemplar with flight and super strength, but she's extremely feminine and bubbly. She's also a virgin (she's only a high school sophomore) mainly because [[spoiler:she doesn't have a vagina yet]].
* Hanami of ''Literature/{{Tasakeru}}'' fits the bill: an InnocentFlowerGirl with a shy nature and long blonde hair, the color of which is unique in the setting.
* Malachy in ''Literature/{{Moonflowers}}''. His honey-blond hair is one of his distinguishing physical traits. He's polite and friendly to strangers, is [[PromotedToParent taking care of his little brother]] due to their parents' deaths, and he makes friends easily with the female lead Alima. He's also Christian, making him a member of the SaintlyChurch. This contrasts with his friend Owen, a TallDarkAndSnarky pagan who's extremely bitter from nearly getting killed by a homophobic mob.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''
** Butters definitely qualifies for this. He's by far one of the most innocent characters on the show.
** Kenny (who was shown to be blond in TheMovie) is a subvversion. He's more heroic than the three other main members of his gang, but isn't above [[TheHedonist excessive sex and drugs for his own amusement]]--and he's only ''ten''. He also parodies this trope as "[[WholesomeCrossdresser Princess Kenny]]" by using a long blonde female wig ([[StylisticSuck badly]]) to dress up as a typical example of this trope (especially [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda Princess Zelda]]), but [[spoiler: turns out to be a ''villain'' in this persona]] in ''VideoGame/SouthParkTheStickOfTruth''.
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'':
** Underneath his hat, Finn has a glorious head of long, beautiful, shimmering golden hair. BilingualBonus as "finn" means "fair-haired".
%% * Princess Dawn, the PrincessClassic protagonist of ''WesternAnimation/HereComesTheGrump''.
* ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'': Jimmy's blond hair is so pure and innocent (just like him), that it even induces niceness upon an {{Expy}} of {{Satan}}.
* Mikey and Gus from ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'', who are considerably the most innocent and pure among the main six.
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'''s resident GranolaGirl, Bridgette, is an apparently natural blonde.
** Lindsay also qualifies. Athough she's a DumbBlonde, she's one of the friendliest and warm-hearted contestants.
* ''WesternAnimation/BeverlyHillsTeens'' has Larke who is the nicest character of the group.
