Just like [[ShyBlueHairedGirl blue-haired girls are often withdrawn and anxious]], pink-haired girls are often [[ThePollyanna cheery and optimistic]] or [[MarryForLove sweet and romantic]]. There's a high chance that, if a series has a FiveManBand, a girl with pink hair is TheChick. It's also a popular hair color for protagonists of MagicalGirl series, hence PinkHeroine.

Bonus points if she has a [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue-haired]] [[PinkGirlBlueBoy love interest]]. She may also have InnocentBlueEyes, both to reinforce the impression of innocent sweetness and to provide a distinctive visual contrast.

This trope doesn't count ''just'' for general pink hair. Other shades like magenta or salmon also count, but purple certainly does ''not''. Pink-haired ''boys'' can also be examples.

SubTrope of YouGottaHaveBlueHair and PinkMeansFeminine. For animals with pink fur, go see AmazingTechnicolorWildlife.

Sometimes in anime it can overlap with BitchInSheepsClothing. The pink-haired girl being designated as a YamatoNadeshiko may be a DeadUnicornTrope.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Misaki Hoshino from ''Manga/AnAngelsMarshmallow'' fits this trope, in the colour pages, at least.
* Pictured above: Akari Mizunashi from Manga/{{ARIA}}. She is notable in the series that even [[PerfectPacifistPeople in a world that almost exclusively populated by idealists (who are at worst grumpy and tired)]], Akari [[LoveFreak stands out among them]], which gets pointed out in several occasion.
* Mizuki Himeji from ''LightNovel/BakaAndTestSummonTheBeasts''. Pretty, nice and a mishmash of [[{{Yandere}} wacko]].
%%* Mao/Mariah from ''Anime/{{Beyblade}}''.
%%* Amanda Werner from ''Anime/{{Blassreiter}}''.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Pink-haired, hyperactive, Yachiru is the cheerful and optimistic version, always smiling, especially when Kenpachi is enjoying his fights.
* Marika from ''LightNovel/BodaciousSpacePirates'' has pink hair with the cheery and optimistic personality.
%%* Komoe Tsukuyomi from ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex''.
* Princess Euphemia li Britannia and Anya Alstreim from ''Anime/CodeGeass''. Euphy's personality fits with what's expected for this trope, being a WideEyedIdealist in a series known for its BlackAndGrayMorality. Conversely, Anya is an EmotionlessGirl...[[BreakTheCutie although she wasn't always like that.]]
%%* Princess Silver from ''Manga/CrayonKingdomOfDreams''
* When alone with her few confidantes, [[UndeadChild Mina Tepes]] from ''Manga/DanceInTheVampireBund'' often qualifies. The problem is that being a 400 year old VampireMonarch with vicious political rivals [[TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask obliges her]] to take [[MagnificentBastard other]] [[IDidWhatIHadToDo roles]].
* Chiaki Nanami in ''Anime/DanganRonpa3''. Her hair's [[HairColorDissonance more pink-brown than actual pink]], but she is by far one of the sweetest characters in the cast, believes strongly in ThePowerOfFriendship, and serves as both TheHeart and Hajime Hinata's LoveInterest.
* [[PluckyComicRelief Kiko]] from ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' certainly fits the GenkiGirl stereotype. However, considering that most of the cast have realistic hair colors and she's a CosplayOtakuGirl, it's quite possible she dyed it to fit this trope.
* ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'' has Yosuga, a shy and sweet girl with soft pink pigtails.
* Nono of ''Anime/{{Diebuster}}'' has long pink hair and is optimistic, cheerful, strong, and passionate.
* Mimi from ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' dyes her hair pink in 02 to fit her sweet and girlish personality. Going to live to New York and experiencing new fashion tastes must have helped in her decision to change her hair. She eventually changes it back to its natural brown color in ''Adventure tri'', but it retains a noticeable pink tint as a remnant of her 02 design.
%%* Kotoko-01 from ''DivergenceEve''.
* Toa from ''Anime/DragonautTheResonance'' with CurtainsMatchTheWindow set of pink eyes as well. Akira has hot pink hair.
* ''Manga/ElfenLied'':
** Nyuu, Lucy's SplitPersonality. Her hair has a more reddish tint in the anime whereas the manga has it as bright pink. Either way, Nyuu is cheerful (and dumb as a post). This is in direct contrast to Lucy's antisocial, solemn and occasionally psychotic personality. However, Lucy[=/=][[spoiler:Kaede]] ''does'' have a sweet and kind side; it's just been buried under years of rage and pain.
** Nana, the other Diclonius main character of the series, also plays this trope straight (well, in the anime; the manga gave her purple hair). She's a total sweetheart, compassionate and cheerful ([[BreakTheCutie most of]] [[BewareTheNiceOnes the time]]).
%%* Anemone from ''Anime/EurekaSeven''.
%%** Elena Peoples from ''Anime/EurekaSevenAO''.
* Cosette, Ropponmatsu II (partially), and Excel's good conscience in ''Anime/ExcelSaga''.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'':
** Sherry, a total LoveFreak. Bonus points for her [[spoiler:original]] love interest Lyon, who has light-blue hair.
** There's also the docile and kind [[SummonMagic Stellar Spirits]] Virgo and Aries.
** Meredy is a cute little girl, but is very much TheStoic. She becomes a full-blown example after the timeskip.
** Chelia, Sherry's cousin, who is also a LoveFreak and very cheerful and friendly.
** TheHero Natsu is basically a typical shonen FieryRedhead, but with pink hair instead of red, making him an inversion.
* Louise from ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero''. She's closer to a FieryRedhead, but over time [[TookALevelInKindness she becomes]] [[{{Tsundere}} less tsun-tsun and more dere-dere]] to Saito and comes to fit the romantic subtype better.
* [[GenkiGirl Cheerful and energetic]] - that definitely describes Haruko Haruhara from ''Anime/{{FLCL}}''.
%%* [[MeaningfulName Rose]] from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', though it's actually just her bangs that are pink. The rest of her hair is dark brown.
* Yuno Gasai from ''Manga/FutureDiary'' has some pretty pink hair and is very cheerful and romantic around her beloved Yukki, but she's definitely [[{{Yandere}} not as sweet]] when it comes to anyone else. It turns out she UsedToBeASweetKid in her backstory, but by the first episode, she's a GoodGirlGoneBad due to her DarkAndTroubledPast.
%%* Miharu Sena Kanaka from ''Manga/GirlsBravo''.
* One of the two protagonists of ''Go! Go! Ichigo'' is a [[{{Transsexual}} trans girl]] named [[http://i35.tinypic.com/24v1pp1.jpg Ichigo]] who has pink hair. She's quite bubbly and perky, though not a GenkiGirl.
* A rare male example: Shuichi from ''{{Manga/Gravitation}}''. He fulfills the optimistic side of the trope, doubling as a {{Keet}}.
* Inori from ''Anime/GuiltyCrown'' has pale pink hair. While she's not at all a GenkiGirl, she does share the "pure" personality shown by many other characters on this page; she's one of the most loyal and caring characters in ''Anime/GuiltyCrown'' [[spoiler: and becomes something of a MessianicArchetype in the final episode]]. She also becomes more [[FieryRedhead passionate]] near the end of the show.
%%* Myuu from ''Anime/HagureYuushaNoEstetica''.
* Mallow from Manga/HappyHappyClover while she doesn't have hair. Her entire body and fur is a light and dark colored shades of pink. Her romantic side doesn't kick in until a later story in the first volume and comes back again in volume 5 after she hears an accidental love confession from Shallot.
* Hinagiku Katsura from ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler''. She fits the cheery subtype and the romantic one, ''and'' she has a blue-haired (clueless) love interest.
%%* Noriko Nakajima from ''HellTeacherNube''.
%%* Another male example: Shun from ''HereIsGreenwood''.
%%* Ringo Yukimori from ''HimeChenOtogiChikkuIdolLilpri''. Oddly enough, she is the reincarnation of Snow White, and the most well-known versions of Snow White all have black hair.
%%* Subaru from ''HoukagoNoPleiades''.
%%* Hikaru from ''HyperSpeedGranDoll''.
%%* The unnamed protagonist of ''JinruiWaSuitaiShimashita''.
%%* Viola from ''Anime/KiddyGrade''.
%%* Ascoeur from ''Anime/KiddyGirlAnd''.
%%* The titular character of ''Anime/ALittleSnowFairySugar''.
* ''Manga/LuckyStar'':
** Pink-haired {{meganekko}} Miyuki Takara is the nicest and sweetest character in the main cast.
** Akira Kogami, who can ''act'' cheery until something angers her, at which point, it doesn't take a whole lot for the fiery aspect of her personality to surface.
* The ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' series plays this absolutely straight with Caro Ru Lushe, a gentle and kind-hearted WhiteMagicianGirl of the Riot Force 6's Forward team, yet inverts it to hell and back with Signum, a {{Stoic}} and no-nonsense swordswoman with an OldSoldier attitude. There is also Sette, ''the'' EmotionlessGirl among Dr. Scaglietti's twelve [[RobotGirl Combat Cyborgs]] by the virtue/misfortune of having been ''designed'' to have the least emotional capacity among the sisters.
%%* Yuna Miyama from ''{{Maburaho}}''.
* ''Manga/MagicalPrincessMinkyMomo'' is a CuteWitch with pink hair.
* From ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', Makie Sasaki and the Narutaki twins have all been depicted with either pink or red hair. The first anime switches them all from pink to red hair about halfway through. They also all fit the "cheery girl" stereotype.
%%* Mao from ''Anime/MaoChan''.
* Lacus Clyne from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'', a peace-loving IdolSinger and daughter to the chairman of [=ZAFT=] that is nicknamed the "Pink Princess". However, she's also a YamatoNadeshiko that intentionally allows people to mistake her gentle nature and idealism for weakness, prior to revealing herself to be a brilliant politician with an iron will and knack for winning people over to her side. By the conclusion of the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny sequel]], she has become the new chairwoman of [=ZAFT=] and one of the few remaining political leaders in the world.
** Sisters Lunamaria and Meyrin Hawke, from ''Destiny''. Both have magenta hair, though Lunamaria is TheChick among the [=ZAFT=] pilots while Meyrin is compassionate and kind.
%%** Feldt Grace from ''{{Gundam 00}}''. WordOfGod claims she dyes it.
%%** Lu Anon from ''GundamAGE''.
%%** Sarah Zabiarov of ''ZetaGundam''... Noticing a theme?
* Haman Karn of ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamzz Double Zeta]]'' has pink hair, but is only cheerful and optimistic as a young girl in the ''Char's Deleted Affair'' manga set after the One Year War.
* Subverted in ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' with [[NoNameGiven Akari's senpai]] at the maid café, who wants to help [[TheLadette Akari]] be more "feminine". She's short, with GirlishPigtails, a sweet demeanour, and a cute beaming smile that never leaves her face. And we mean ''[[PerpetualExpression never]]'', no matter the circumstances. As a result, she comes off as [[UncannyValley far more scary than cute]] (not to mention she's a former delinquent like Akari).
%%* Sakura Haruno from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''.
* Coby from ''Manga/OnePiece''. However, he is a rare male ShrinkingViolet, and in direct contrast to the usual Pink-Haired teenager, he often has a nervous outlook on life - even after taking a small [[TookaLevelinBadass level in Badass]].
** Princess Rebecca from the Dressrosa arc, [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/iGlt-UMP9Jo/maxresdefault.jpg hot damn]]. She is BadassPacifist, but unfortunately for her, she's more of a pacifist than being badass. She is too good natured to be a warrior and is unable to hurt her opponents despite wielding a sword (for self-defence).
%%* Miwako from ''Manga/ParadiseKiss'', fittingly enough.
* Himeno Awayuki in ''Manga/{{Pretear}}'', the cheerful and optimistic heroine. Also a type B {{Tsundere}} to Hayate, the aloof blue haired knight.
* Most pink-haired girls from the ''Anime/PrettyCure'' franchise are either cheerful, sweet or romantically in love with someone, but all of them are [[AllLovingHero All-Loving Heroines]].
%%* The titular PrincessComet has pink hair.
* Madoka Kaname from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', showcasing her innocent nature.
%%* The titular character of ''PuniPuniPoemi''.
%%* Nagisa in ''RaveMaster''.
* The titular pink-haired Utena from ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' is a passionate and optimistic ActionGirl.
* Moka Akashiya's outer self in ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'', who is kind, naive and romantic in direct contrast to her cold inner self.
%%* Haramura Nodoka from ''Manga/{{Saki}}''.
* ''Manga/SchoolLive'':
** Yuki Takeya is one of the sweetest characters, and while she's not romantic, that's because she's the most childish of the group. Too bad she doesn't fit in that [[ZombieApocalypse world.]]
** Megu-nee is the pink haired SenseiChan. She's sweet and mature. [[spoiler:She's also quite protective as even as a zombie she hid herself away because she didn't want to hurt the children]].
%%* Wilhelmina Carmel from ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana''.
* Kuniko Hojo of ''LightNovel/ShangriLa''. Also an {{Idiot Hero}}ine;
-->"No plan, no idea!"
* ''ShowByRock'' has Moa, pink, curly-haired sheep girl as the band's GenkiGirl. (She's practically a [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Pinkie Pie]] expy!) Oh, and she's also [[spoiler: an alien]].
* ''Manga/SoulEater'': There's also Crona, whose hair [[AdaptationDyeJob was pink in the manga]] but was changed to lavender in the anime, but [[AmbiguousGender s/he's]] more of a ShrinkingViolet.
%%* The titular character of ''SteelAngelKurumi''.
* In ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'', there's Rika Shinozaki, AKA Lisbeth, who has natural brown hair, but her in-game avatars have pink hair, and is a cheerful girl who gets along with just about everybody she meets in a short amount of time.
%%* Washu Hakubi from ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'', though it varies from light pink to dark pink to red, depending on the official artwork.
%%** A male example would be Seiryo Tennan from ''Tenchi'' OAV 2 and ''Anime/TenchiMuyoGXP.''
* ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' has all 3 (naturally they are sisters). [[GenkiGirl Lala]] is cheerful and optimistic, [[{{Tsundere}} Nana]] is the FieryRedHead and [[LoveableSexManiac Momo]] is the [[SingleTargetSexuality sweet and romantic one]] (although her idea of romantic is rather [[HaremSeeker broad]]).
* Momoko from ''Manga/WeddingPeach'', one of the most upbeat characters and also the heroine.
* [[ArtificialHuman Cheza]] from ''Anime/WolfsRain'' is the sweet, low-key romantic subtype. For bonus points, the guy who created her has blue hair, [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl not to mention]] the more tomboyish ActionGirl Blue.
%%* Kanon Nakagawa from ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows''.
* Yuna from ''Anime/YukiYunaIsAHero'' is a redheaded girl whose hair turns pink when in "[[MagicalGirl Hero]]" form. She's an optimistic and sweet GenkiGirl who is in a school club revolving around community service.
* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'': Genkai, at least, [[IWasQuiteALooker in her younger days]], is an example of the "fiery" sort. It grayed over time, though. However, [[AdaptationDyeJob in the manga]], her hair was strawberry-blonde.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Megan Gwynn (Pixie) from ''ComicBook/NewXMen'' fit the definition for a good while, until Magik (or Magik's demonic clone) got to her. DependingOnTheArtist, her hair's now either mostly black with pink streaks or mostly pink with black streaks, but either way, she was heavily affected by having bits of her soul ripped out and is suffering some serious overall disillusionment with the X-Adults.
* Devi from ''ComicBook/IFeelSick'' definitely fits 'passionate and strong' and wishes she fit 'romantic'.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
%%* Shinju Miwa (Cure Pearl) from ''FanFic/ShiningPrettyCure'', in both forms.
%%* Sakura Tsuitei from ''FanFic/PrettyCureFullColor''.
* In the ''Manga/DeathNote'' fic ''FanFic/PointOfSuccession'' Matt is a Rose-Haired ''Boy''-right before Mello was abducted by a SerialKiller [[PracticalJoke he had caused Matt to have a hair dye "accident" dying his hair an embarassing shade of bright pink.]] [[HeroicVow Matt has resolved he's not going to dye it back]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming until they've got Mello back]].
* ''Fanfic/PacificWorldWarIIUsNavyShipgirls'' has [[{{Meganekko}} Mahan]].
* Subverted in ''Fanfic/StarWarsTheSithZero'' as Louise may have bright pink hair but she is far from being that kind AllLovingHero, especially during her training as Sith. However, her elder sister Cattleya plays this trope straight.

%% [[folder:Film]]
%% * Blink from ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast.
%% [[/folder]]

* Literature/TrappedOnDraconica: Daniar is the strong and passionate type.
* Effie Trinket from ''Literature/TheHungerGames'', who can be optimistic and effervescent to an almost manic degree. Her wig is pink in the first book (and in her first scenes in the movie), so it's the one she's most associated with, along with the color pink in general.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Estelle from ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' is a rather interesting example. While she's definitely the sweet, demure, [[TheChick chick]] of the group, she's also a [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething royal that actually does something]] and fights in battle with a sword and shield.
* ''VideoGame/{{AkaSeka}}'', being an otome game, provides two male examples.
** Mori Ranmaru is a pink-haired {{Adorkable}} teenage guy.
** Takenaka Hanbē's hair color is an even lighter pink than Ranmaru's, and he is a pacifist with a calm and gentle demeanor. He is also an IllBoy to boot.
* TheOjou Princess Micaiah in ''VideoGame/MicaApoptosis'' has very pale pink/purple hair, and is kind and feminine.
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'':
** Lenna in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' (in her sprites, at least; Amano artwork has her as [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold blonde]]). Her element is water, which signifies devotion, and she's a FriendToAllLivingThings princess who treats everyone with kindness and worries very much over the world's welfare.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' has Serah Farron, a cheerful and big-hearted girl who's a {{Foil}} to her stoic soldier sister. Vanille (who veers more into a salmon-shade) comes as [[ThePollyanna bubbly and optimistic as they come]] [[spoiler:until it's revealed she's [[StepfordSmiler faking it]]]]. But even after this, she's still the most upbeat of everyone. Lightning herself is a subversion; while her hair is pink, she is ''not'' a sweetie, even though she does level up in kindness during the game.
* [[CuteGhostGirl Yuyuko Saigyouji]] from the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' series, due to her cherry blossom theme and her cheerful and optimistic personality.
* The Standard Branch of the ''VisualNovel/TokimekiMemorial'' series has a good number of Rose-Haired Girls. ''Tokimemo 2'' has the [[TwinSwitch Shirayuki twins]], [[TheIngenue Miho]] and [[GenkiGirl Maho]], as well as EnsembleDarkHorse [[DefrostingIceQueen Kaori]] [[TheWoobie Yae]] (who happened to be a GenkiGirl before the events that made her the BrokenBird she is at the start of the game, [[spoiler: and gradually returns to her former GenkiGirl self after she overcomes her painful past, thanks to the PowerOfLove]]).
* Serra from ''FireEmblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe The Blazing Blade]]'' and Ethlin from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Geneaology of the Holy War]]'' are GenkiGirl examples, while Linoan from ''Thracia 776'' is the docile ProperLady variety.
** Olivia in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Awakening]]'', except she's a ShrinkingViolet. And though the player ''[[GuideDangIt really]]'' [[GuideDangIt have to push it]], she can marry the blue-haired Chrom. Cherche, too, as a ProperLady variant. (Though she can't marry Chrom due to appearing after the TimeSkip).
** Also, when [[spoiler: a male PlayerCharacter marries either Cherche or Olivia, their GenkiGirl daughter Morgan will possess pink hair.]] Similarly, [[spoiler: if said male character is given pink hair, then his non-Morgan son/daughter will be rose-haired too... meaning one can potentially have a family with ''several rose-haired'' people. (And if the mom is Olivia or Cherche, ''[[UpToEleven a whole rose-haired family]]''.]]
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has several examples, with the most outstanding ones being Princess Sakura of Hoshido (a NiceGirl type [[spoiler: whose children will inherit her pink hair]]) and an Avatar of either gender who is given pink hair.
* Mayu Uzaka from ''VideoGame/LightningLegendDaigoNoDaibouken''. She's of the cheery, strong, and passionnate type, being a {{Tomboy}} [[JusticeWillPrevail fighting for justice]].
* [[BlowYouAway Liebea]] from ''VideoGame/{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}''. Bonus points for being a ProperLady who's prone to crying.
* Imoen in ''VideoGame/BaldursGate''. Somehow, she dyed her hair pink in the sequel. She's a mage and is very cheerful despite [[BreakTheCutie all the bad things that happened to her]].
** An even bigger example is Alora. A halfling thief with an infinitely cheery GenkiGirl persona, she encourages the entire party to [[ForHappiness play nice and do good things]]. She's pretty good at it too, managing even to get on ''[[IneffectualLoner Edwin]]'s'' good side.
* Elphelt Valentine of ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear Xrd'' has pink hair. She's also obsessed with romance and marriage, to the point where her win animation consists of her running over, [[VictoriasSecretCompartment producing a marriage contract from her cleavage]] and trying to convince her beaten up opponent to sign it.
* ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'':
** Nina from ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon1'' and ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonMagicalMelody'' is the optimistic, happy daughter of the local flower shop owner (who also has pink hair).
** Her granddaughter, Popuri from ''VideoGame/{{Harvest Moon 64}}'' and ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonBackToNature'' is much like Nina. She has the same passion for flowers in ''64'' but in most incarnations is a chicken farmer, though is still heavily associated with flowers.
** Lyla from ''Save the Homeland'' and ''Magical Melody'' is a flower shop owner with a permanent smile. She's usually happy and friendly, however it's noted that just because she is smiling doesn't mean she's happy.
* Averted by Poison from ''VideoGame/FinalFight''. She's got a giant mane of bright pink EightiesHair but she's a [[MsFanservice fanservicey]] [[{{Mook}} thug]] working for the Mad Gear street gang. She [[HeelFaceTurn turned over a new leaf]] when she was [[{{Transplant}} moved]] to ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' but she's as crude as ever.
* ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}'':
** Compa has strawberry blonde hair that are also referred as pink. She is a sweet, innocent, ditzy girl who is also TheMedic.
** Purple Sister has pink hair that does not look that much different from her human form's hair. Her personality is basically the same as Nepgear's: sweet, polite, and innocent.
** White Sister Ram has pink hair, fitting to her human form's preference for the color pink. Her personality isn't much different from her human form's cheerful, mischievous and bratty attitude. It also contrasts to her docile and shy twin sister's blue hair.
** Averted with TheStoic Magic the Hard. Her neon-pink hair (and GirlishPigtails) only adds a contrast to her overall dark design, which makes her overall creepier.
* Claris Sinclair from ''VideoGame/NightsIntoDreams'' She's a very [[CheeryPink cheerful & bubbly]] teenage girl. Bonus points for having a blue-haired love interest.
* Saki from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' is a [[BirdPeople Rito]] woman with a tuft of pink "hair" on top of her head along with pink plumage all over her body. She's very polite with Link compared to her terse husband Teba and is one of the more pacifistic Rito characters, as evidenced by her worry over Teba taking their son Tulin to practice archery because the latter is "still so innocent."
* ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing''
** Reese from ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing: New Leaf'' is a sweet, helpful alpaca with pink fur working at Re-Tail. She follows you around, buys things from you, and assists you whenever you want to buy or sell in the flea market. Her husband, Cyrus, has [[PinkGirlBlueBoy blue fur]] and is initially overprotective of Resse if you're male (and she's overprotective of him if you're female).
** You have the option to start off as a Pink-haired female character as the default.
* Toadette from ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' invokes this trait by having a mushroom cap that's pink in color and having GirlishPigtails. She also has a braver, more upbeat personality then most other Toads, who are usually {{Loveable Coward}}s by default.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Kohaku and Hisui from ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}''. Kohaku is cheery, while Hisui is docile.
* Misha from ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'' is of the [[ThePollyanna cheery]], [[GenkiGirl energetic]] type. [[spoiler:Except she actually dyes her hair and she's [[StepfordSmiler not as cheery as you'd think]].]]
* [[SpiritedYoungLady Rose Haibara]], protagonist of ''VisualNovel/RoseGunsDays'', is of a generally kind and understanding nature, making everyone love her. However she ''can'' speak strongly when there is something she cannot accept.
* Elodie from ''VisualNovel/LongLiveTheQueen'', who starts out as a sweet, innocent, and somewhat naive fourteen-year old princess who just inherited the throne on her mother's death. Depending on how you play (and whether she survives), she can continue to play out the stereotype, or [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen turn into one hell of a subversion]].
* Kendall Flowers from ''VisualNovel/DontTakeItPersonallyBabeItJustAintYourStory'', a charismatic, outspoken, terrifyingly intelligent and occasionally rather insensitive teenage girl.
* There are two pink-haired girls in the main ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' games: April May and Geiru. Both of them are cheerful, playful [[TheDitz ditzes]]... until you find contradictions in their testimonies. Then they [[BitchInSheepsClothing go berserk on you as you get closer and closer to indict them for a crime]]. [[spoiler:April May is a red herring, while Geiru really is a murderer.]]
* Rosemary from ''VisualNovel/RoseOfWinter'' gets bonus points for a MeaningfulName. She's optimistic, sweet, a bit naive, and a hopeless romantic, though [[BadassAdorable she can also take down wild animals twice her size]] with her trademark {{BFS}}.
* Cheria Barnes from ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'' is the TeamMom of the party, involved in humanitarian efforts, and at one point shows mercy to someone who previously tried to kill her.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Cupcake from ''Webcomic/CassiopeiaQuinn'' comes from a planet full of these.
* Cybele from ''Webcomic/ButImACatPerson'', though she's a shapeshifter, almost invariably takes forms that are (a) pink-haired and (b) adorable.
* ''Webcomic/CountdownToCountdown''
** Begonia has pink and she's a cheerful and sweet girl.
** Lilium is a male example. He has pink hair and a cheery demeanor.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* The ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'' has [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-040 SCP-040]], a little girl with pink hair which is implied to be a result of using her [[LEGOGenetics power]] on herself. Her hair is very brittle and falls out a lot. As for "Sweetie", she's one of the [[DarkIsNotEvil nicer, less threatening]] [[CreepyChild child SCP items]], which [[CrapsackWorld isn't saying that much]].

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Princess Bubblegum of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' has many of these traits, except for the romantic part.
* Dolce from ''WesternAnimation/AngelsFriends'' is of the cheery and optimistic type.
* Molly of ''WesternAnimation/BubbleGuppies'' is most often the [[GenkiGirl cheery and optimistic]] kind. She also has a [[PinkGirlBlueBoy blue-haired]] [[ToyShip love interest]].
* Aelita of ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' qualifies, being a genuinely sweet and good-natured person most of the time and while her love interest, Jeremie, doesn't have blue hair, he is associated with the color blue.
* Tamera from ''WesternAnimation/PrincessGwenevereAndTheJewelRiders'' is the sweetest, most gentle member of her team.
* Ami from ''WesternAnimation/HiHiPuffyAmiYumi''.
* Kimber Benton from ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' has shockingly pink EightiesHair, and is the most friendly and cheerful of their group, easily befriending Stormer from their rival band The Misfits. She also has the most romantic entanglements aside from Jem herself.
* The titular character's elf form from WesternAnimation/MiaAndMe.
* ''Many'' characters from ''Franchise/MyLittlePony''.
** Patch, Clover and Sweetheart from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTales''; Patch and Clover are GenkiGirl examples while Sweetheart is the docile version.
** Fluttershy from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is the docile version, while Pinkie Pie is both the "cheery and optimistic" version and an ''extreme'' GenkiGirl. [[BewareTheNiceOnes In both cases]] however, you ''don't'' want to [[BerserkButton mess with their friends]]. Celestia is also depicted with rose hair 1000 years ago, though speculation about what her personality was like back then is just that.
** [[CheerfulChild Sweetie]] [[TheDitz Belle]] as well- the "sweetie" part is even in her name!
* Jinmay from ''WesternAnimation/SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo'', the cute and sweet RobotGirl and girlfriend of TheHero Chiro.
* Starfire from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' is usually very optimistic and cheerful.
* Amethyst from ''WesternAnimation/{{Trollz}}'' is one of the kindest of her group of friends, and is usually upbeat and friendly.
* The aptly-named Rose Quartz from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has big, curly pink hair. She's often shown in flashbacks to have been very sweet and caring.
* ''WesternAnimation/NeoYokio'''s protagonist Kaz could be seen as a RareMaleExample, though he's more [[TheEeyore melancholy]] and [[SpoiledSweet occasionally]] [[ItsAllAboutMe selfish]] than most examples.
