->''She's a revolution, she's a peace accord\\

-->-- '''Music/GaelicStorm''', "Green Eyes, Red Hair"

Green-eyed redheads are among the rarest color combinations found in humanity (with the exception of some abnormalities), if not ''the'' rarest, and thus is used to distinguish an important, notable character visually. It's more often applied to women than it is to men (especially since most people in real life with green eyes are women), and is almost always either found as a trait of TheHero (see RedIsHeroic) or The Hero's LoveInterest (because HeroesWantRedheads). To qualify for this trope, it's important that:

* The character is a major character.
* The character is '''not''' in a work where YouGottaHaveBlueHair.
* The character isn't from a live-action work, unless the actor was artificially given these colors for the purpose of the work, or were chosen directly for it.
* The character specifically has red hair and green eyes, and not pink/magenta hair or [[InnocentBlueEyes hazel/blue-green eyes]], or even green hair and red eyes.

Likely to be a FieryRedhead, as GreenEyes often connote a [[HotBlooded similar kind of personality]]. If ElementalPowers apply, they're probably PlayingWithFire.

This image might have been [[TropeCodifier influenced a lot]] by Creator/MaureenOHara and her various roles, which also influenced this to be the PhenotypeStereotype for an [[{{Oireland}} Irish]] person. It may also have something to do with the fact that red and green are complementary colors -- which also may help to explain why so many red-headed characters are [[RedheadInGreen depicted wearing green]], even if they aren't Irish.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
%% Mr X of ''Anime/ArgentoSoma'', that manipulates everything from shadows.
* Youko Nakajima from ''LightNovel/TheTwelveKingdoms'' is the main character, and her red hair[[labelnote:†]] (which gets redder when she goes to the titular Kingdoms, along with her eyes turning green)[[/labelnote]] marks her as different, so she is often harassed for it. [[spoiler:It also marks her as a ''taika'', someone who was meant to be in that world but was born on Earth by accident.]]
* Kurama of ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', at least in his human form, [[AdaptationDyeJob but only in the anime]]. The crimson hair/leaf-green eyes combination in this case is a warning [[BewareTheNiceOnes not to underestimate]] [[GuileHero him]], because, like his [[SuckMyRose roses]], he has [[TranquilFury thorns]]. It's also a hint at his nature as a {{Kitsune}} and a {{youkai}}, as there are folk stories of red-headed green-eyed people actually being foxes and in disguise and the shade of red being decidedly unnatural for a human.
* ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'s'' Pip Bernadotte, LoveInterest of Seras Victoria. While he's a mercenary and an AntiHero to be traditionally sweet, he ''is'' the nicest of the guys in these series along with Sir Shelby Penwood. With the other men being {{Dracula}}, a deadly butler, Nazis, and [[ChurchMilitant Fanatic Vatican Crusaders]], Pip looks like a saint.
%%* Lavi from ''Manga/DGrayMan''.
* [[spoiler:Brief]] in ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'', whose red hair emphasizes his geeky qualities, and then, with the reveal of his eyes [[spoiler:emphasizes he is attractive.]]
* Kino Makoto/Sailor Jupiter from ''Manga/SailorMoon'' is one of the main characters and in the manga, and her hair is red in color pictures, ([[AdaptationDyeJob brown]] in the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]]). WordOfGod says that her eyes turn green after transforming into Jupiter, and they look more hazel/brown in her untransformed state in some artwork.
* Lydia from ''LightNovel/EarlAndFairy'' has this as a sign of her affinity with TheFairFolk. It's a source of great trouble for her due to the cultural discrimination people with red hair suffered in Victorian England, on top of the implications she might be a [[ChangelingTale changeling]].
* Nakaba from ''Manga/ReimeiNoArcana'' is the protagonist. Her bright red hair causes her to be discriminated against, and her green eyes turn red when she uses her powers. She's also in the middle of a love triangle between the romantic lead, and her ChildhoodFriend.
* Lancerow Durell of ''Anime/AfterWarGundamX'' isn't TheHero or a LoveInterest, but he ''was'' Jamil Neate's {{Rival}} during the last war, an ex-Newtype, and an AntiVillain in the Space Revolutionary Army. He plays a very important part of the final arc [[spoiler:and ultimately switches to the heroes' side]].
* The final major cyborg introduced in ''Manga/GunslingerGirl'', Petra, is one of these. Prior to being made a cyborg she looked very different though, far shorter and being a blue eyed blonde.
* In ''Manga/TheAncientMagusBride'', Chise Hatori is noted repeatedly for having this despite how implausible it is for someone of Japanese descent. This actually stands as a strong mark of her being a [[BarrierMaiden Sleigh Beggy,]] is the protagonist of the series, and easily makes her one of the most distinguishable characters amidst a cast of TheFairFolk and all sorts of individuals in the United Kingdom.
* Misty from ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' was the leading female for the Kanto and Johto arcs. She was often portrayed with blue eyes but since the leap to digital has been almost always consistently depicted as having green eyes. In the manga adaptation ''Manga/TheElectricTaleOfPikachu'' she was originally a [[AdaptationDyeJob brunette]] but was later redesigned more similarly to her anime design.
* Misty in ''Manga/PokemonAdventures'' is much less prominent but still counts. She is one of the major Kanto gym leaders and has unrequited feelings for Red.
* The protagonist of ''Manga/VenusVersusVirus'', Sumire, has dark red hair and green eyes. Her eyes turn [[RedEyesTakeWarning red]] when she [[SuperpoweredEvilSide goes into Berserk mode]].
* In ''Anime/PanzerWorldGalient'', Hilmuka has this combination of colour of hair and eyes. She's one of the main characters and an important ally of [[TheHero Jordy]], teaching him to handle [[HumongousMecha Galient]] and sharing intelligence about the enemy.
* Shirayuki from ''Manga/SnowWhiteWithTheRedHair''
* Gaara from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. Although his eyes are ''officially'' blue, [[DownplayedTrope they look sort of green under certain light]].

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Creator/DCComics' [[Franchise/TheFlash Wally West]], [[SidekickGraduationsStick the third Flash]]
* ''ComicBook/XMen'':
** ComicBook/JeanGrey is the one of the original members of the team, the love interest of ComicBook/{{Cyclops}}, and took center stage in what is arguably the franchise's [[ComicBook/TheDarkPhoenixSaga best known story]].
** Also Jean's daughter from an alternate future, ComicBook/RachelSummers, and her clone, Madelyne Pryor.
** Also Hope Summers, a very important player in the X-Men franchise who obviously takes after Jean.
** Fongji Wu, a mixed-race Tibetan girl and the previous bearer of both the Phoenix Force and the [[ComicBook/ImmortalIronFist Iron Fist]] mantle.
** ComicBook/{{Rogue}} was occasionally colored with just straight-up red hair with green eyes, especially during her most popular years in the '90s, but did eventually move to brown.
* Mary Jane Watson from ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' is the love interest of Peter Parker, has been a supermodel, and is known for striking good looks, as opposed to Gwen Stacy's more traditional GirlNextDoor appearance (despite MJ being the literal girl next door).
%%* Maxima from ''{{Superman}}'' has the red hair and green eyes.
* ComicBook/{{Batwoman}} / Kate Kane, the main character of her own series, whose coloration, especially her red hair, is starkly emphasized against dark and bleak Gotham.
* Lyra, daughter of Thundra and the ComicBook/IncredibleHulk, combines this with green skin.
* In ''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' series ''ComicBook/SupergirlCosmicAdventuresInThe8thGrade'', Lena Thorul is the green-eyed, red-haired main character's best friend and mad scientist.. Also the "Lex's daughter" incarnation in Franchise/TheDCU ... although in this case her green eyes may have indicated that she was still connected to ComicBook/{{Brainiac}}.
* ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' has two major characters who meet this description. One is ComicBook/LanaLang, his childhood best friend, confidante, and first love (and who briefly acted as a surrogate mother to his cousin, Supergirl). The other is {{archenemy}} ComicBook/LexLuthor, who has envious green eyes and flaming red eyebrows as an adult, and possessed a full head of red hair as a teenager.
* Caitlin Fairchild from ''ComicBook/{{Gen 13}}'' is this physically as well as usually personality wise (though she can be a FieryRedhead when it comes to protecting the others).
* ComicBook/PoisonIvy, whose coloration not only emphasizes her seductive qualities, but also seems more dangerous and earthy.
* ComicBook/{{Starfire}}, with golden skin. Note that while it's true that Starfire has green eyes, that doesn't mean she has normal eyes with green irises... it means her eyes are ''solid'' green.
* Leetah and her daughter Ember, as well as Redlance and his daughter Tyleet, in ''ComicBook/ElfQuest''. Notable because Leetah and Ember are both [[DarkSkinnedRedhead dark-skinned]]. Averted with Kaslen in Hidden Years, as she turned out to have no special significance to the plot.
%%* ''ComicBook/TheIncredibles'': Mezmerella.
* ''Franchise/ArchieComics'':
** ThirdOptionLoveInterest Cheryl Blossom is one of the few characters that consistently has colored eyes. Most characters have BlackBeadEyes.
** Archie himself has green eyes in ''ComicBook/ArchieComics2015''. In the classic continuity he usually had blue eyes.
%%* ''ComicBook/TarotWitchOfTheBlackRose'': Tarot.
* Delirium from ''ComicBook/TheSandman'' is this on occasion. She can change her hair color/length at will (but mostly it happens by accident), though it usually has some red in it and is fully red at least once. Usually has one green and one blue eye, though when she composes herself and behaves seriously they are the same color.
* Aphrodite in the "Adventures in Olympus" arc of ''ComicBook/{{Flare}}'', notable in that the most beautiful person to exist has this combination of color, and is in fact often portrayed as a redhead in art, especially Pre-Raphaelite and Neoclassicism.
* Rose in the ''ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}'' miniseries ''Origin'', who is intended as a "proto-Jean Grey" in Wolverine's story, just as Dog is a "proto-Sabretooth".
* ComicBook/AngelLove, the main character of the eponymous comic book series.
* The titular heroine of ''ComicBook/AlbedoErmaFelnaEDF'' is a ''non-human'' example of this, as she have red hair (technically reddish-brown, as the author is color-blind), green eyes and ''[[PettingZooPeople brown fur]]''.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
%% * Chloe Auriville from ''FanFic/PrettyCurePerfumePreppy'' while in civilian form, though she is more sensible than passionate, and is {{The Hero}}ine herself.
* Assassin, adventuress and safari-savvy Johanna Smith-Rhodes, from the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' continuum [[Fanfic/NatureStudies fanfic]] [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5318396/1/Nature-Studies Nature Studies.]] She started life as a rather attitudinal "[[UsefulNotes/TheApartheidEra Sed-Efrrrrikan]]" with all the knobs of White Southern African-ness turned up to eleven. In her most recent appearance in '''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11536013/1/Hyperemesis-gravidarum Hyperemesis Gravidarum]]''', she becomes proud mother to a daughter who promises to have Mother's red hair and green eyes.
* Julia Carlyle, from the ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}''[=/=]''ComicBook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}'' crossover ''Legion of Lawndale Heroes'', has dark red hair and green eyes.
* The (in)famous ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' {{OC}}, Website/{{Pixiv}}!Scotland. Also some renditions of Ireland, following the aforementioned PhenotypeStereotype. Others make him/her a PaleSkinnedBrunette instead, ''specifically'' to go against it.
%%* Dr. Brainstorm from ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries''.
* Mary Jane Watson, the protagonist of ''[[FanFic/UltimateSpiderWoman Ultimate Spider-Woman: Change With The Light]]'', has long, fire-red hair and bright green eyes.
* Captain Kanril Eleya, the protagonist of ''Fanfic/BaitAndSwitchSTO'', is has red hair and dark green eyes.
* Judicial-Cadet Jacqueline Quartermain from [[https://www.fanfiction.net/community/Cornelius-Anderson/116268/ this series]] of ''Film/{{Dredd}}'' fanfics is a gorgeous teenager with hair like "new copper wiring" and brilliant green eyes. She's from Boston and [[WordOfGod word of God]] is that she is ethnically [[{{Oireland}} Irish]], perhaps [[PhenotypeStereotype justifying the choice]].
* In ''Fanfic/TheUltimateEvil'', we're introduced Nataline Homato, a [[DemonSlaying demon hunter]] who's described for a reason as [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy The Vampire Slayer's]] long lost cousin.
* In ''most'' ''Manga/DeathNote'' fanworks where Matt is featured, he will have red hair and green eyes (and, of course, a ''much'' larger role than he ''ever'' [[OneSceneWonder had in either the anime or the manga]].) This is because his hair color was undefined in the manga (until the 10th anniversary colorized publication, where he had the brown hair and blue eyes he was given in the anime). {{Fanon}} decided that his hair color was red, and his eyes were green.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* Danny from ''WesternAnimation/CatsDontDance'', the lead, is also an example of an orange-furred cat with green eyes.
* Hans in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', a very handsome prince who is an immediate source of attraction to main character Anna.
* Thomas O'Malley and Toulouse (one of Duchess' kittens) from ''Disney/TheAristocats'', both ginger cats with cat-green eyes, in contrast with Duchess and Marie's white fur (see: blonde) and blue eyes.
* Taran from ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'', the hero of the story.
* Quasimodo, the protagonist from ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame''.
* Queen Athena from ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidIII'', whose red hair is very relevant to her physical resemblance to Ariel.
* Jessie as the AffirmativeActionGirl lead in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'', as well as being Buzz's LoveInterest in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3''.
* Jessica Rabbit from ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', the wife of the titular character. It's easy to miss, as [[MyEyesAreUpHere few people are looking at her eyes]].
* Tulip from ''WesternAnimation/{{Storks}}'', the main heroine of the film.
* Felicie from ''WesternAnimation/{{Leap}}'', the main character.
%%* [[WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}} Puss]] [[WesternAnimation/PussInBoots in Boots]].
%%* Daria and her father, Heath, in ''WesternAnimation/ThePrincessAndThePea''.
%%* Eep from ''WesternAnimation/TheCroods''.
%%* MK and her father; Professor Bomba from ''WesternAnimation/{{Epic}}''.
%%* Sam Sparks from ''WesternAnimation/CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'' fits the physical description.
%%* Lucy Wilde from ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe 2''.
%%* Bridget in the first ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'' movie.
* Madame Medusa from ''Disney/TheRescuers'' is a villainous example.
* Another villainous example is Sir Ruber from ''WesternAnimation/QuestForCamelot''.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* As played by Sarah Michelle Gellar, Daphne Blake in the live-action ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' movies, whose hair is dyed to give her this look.
* Layla from ''Film/SkyHigh'' is worth mentioning due her being an {{Expy}} (at least in powers; her personality is quite different) of Poison Ivy, another character with notable Red hair and green eyes that has power over plants.
* Though in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' books, Harry has green eyes and Ron blue, this is inverted in the film versions with Harry being played by Daniel Radcliffe (blue eyes) and Ron by Rupert Grint (red hair/green eyes).
* When [[ComicBook/BlackWidow Natasha Romanov]] is introduced to Tony Stark in ''Film/IronMan2'', we get a [[MaleGaze lengthy close-up of her face]] showing just how [[FemmeFatale devastatingly beautiful]] this combination is. Tony Stark is visibly EatingTheEyeCandy.

* ''Literature/NightfallSeries'': Armida, the BigBad's lover
* In ''Literature/DragonBlood'', the magician "Jade Eyes", named for those green eyes, has red hair. It is mentioned that his beauty is not the reason why he's the highest mage in rank at the [[DepravedHomosexual king's]] court--he's also a powerful mage who makes life difficult for the heroes. [[spoiler:Actually, in terms of power, he's the main villain.]]
* All of the Pennykettles from ''[[Literature/{{Dragons}} The Last Dragon Chronicles]]'' are this.
* ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'':
** Mara Jade may be the ultimate example: a badass and former EvilRedhead who was so enormously popular, she joined the good guys, became TheHero Luke's long-time partner, and was eventually happily married to him. Until ''Literature/LegacyOfTheForce'', but no one likes what happened there.
** Scout, the Jedi Padawan equivalent of Batman in ''Yoda: Literature/DarkRendezvous'', has these.
** ''Literature/JediApprentice'''s Clat'Ha is only in a few of the books, but she's significant in them.
* Lily Evans Potter from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series is a PosthumousCharacter example: a formidable witch of her own, she was the love interest to James, TheHero of the previous generation, [[spoiler:and friends with [[TheAtoner Severus Snape]], until they [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend had a falling out]], but whose death became Snape's primary motivation.]]
* ''Literature/GemmaDoyle'', the protagonist from the ''A Great and Terrible Beauty'' trilogy. Her mother too.
* Maharet and Mekare from ''Literature/TheVampireChronicles'', as well as Jesse.
** Partly justified with Jesse, as she is [[spoiler:Maharet's distant descendant]]. All three women are capable of communicating with spirits.
* Ellysetta Baristani, the main character of ''Literature/TairenSoul''.
%%* Becky Sharp in Thackeray's ''Literature/VanityFair'' (1847-48) is a green-eyed EvilRedhead, though her hair is probably more of the sandy variety.
* Beatrice Bailey, the protagonist of ''Literature/TheWitchesOfBailiwick''. Her specialty is controlling the weather, which goes with the nature aspect of this trope.
* Christopher Hitchens mentioned this trope while criticizing a stereotypically Irish-American character in JohnUpdike's last novel.
* The title character of ''[[Literature/{{Graceling}} Fire]]'' is red-headed and green-eyed and beautiful beyond the lot of ordinary people; her hair and eye color both coming from her mother.
* Felicity Merriman, a main character from the ''Literature/AmericanGirlsCollection'', one of the few redheads who, by the nature of this trope, of course is paired with green eyes.
* Vesper Holly, MarySue protagonist of a NarmCharm-tastic children's adventure series by Creator/LloydAlexander. Just look at that name!
* Sennar, one of the main characters of the ''Literature/ChroniclesOfTheEmergedWorld''.
%%* Aviendha from ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' has been described as such.
* Cherry Valance from ''Literature/TheOutsiders'' is the redhead with green eyes that starts all the trouble in the book, while allowing Ponyboy, the protagonist, to change his view on Socs.
* Kvothe in ''Literature/TheKingkillerChronicle'', who has "true red" hair. His eyes even have the bonus of [[MoodRingEyes changing to different shades of green according to his mood]].
* April, one of the main characters from ''Literature/{{Everworld}}'' is mentioned a few times to be this.
* Rachel Morgan and her mother in ''Literature/TheHollows''.
* Sioned, one of the main characters from Melanie Rawn's ''Literature/DragonPrince'' stories.
%%* Sharon from the Topeka Kansas USA section of The Great Panic chapter in ''Literature/WorldWarZ''.
* [[TheCasanova Finnick Odair]] of ''Literature/TheHungerGames'', who is not only described as very attractive, but the only major redhead of the series, and one of the most important secondary characters.
%%* In Creator/MichaelFlynn's ''[[Literature/SpiralArm January Dancer]]'', a woman is introduced by her red hair and green eyes even before her name is given.
* [[NoNameGiven The Girl]] from ''Literature/TheClubDumas''; her very light green eyes are mentioned many times as being captivating, likely because she is in fact [[spoiler:a fallen angel]]. In the film adaptation, ''Film/TheNinthGate'', however, she has different coloring.
* Mildmay, one of the viewpoint characters of ''Literature/DoctrineOfLabyrinths''. For most of the story, he's one of only two-redhaired people, the other being his brother, and the only redhead with green eyes. Felix often describes them as being like jade.
%%* Rachel Elizabeth Dare from ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''.
* ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'' makes a point of noting that all of the princesses fit this trope, to the point where their hair is called "the royal red". [[spoiler:Cira/Halley]] actually [[DyeOrDie dyed her hair black]] to throw off suspicion.
* Ce'Nedra from David Eddings' ''Literature/TheBelgariad'' and The Mallorean, who is the beautiful, FieryRedhead love interest of TheHero, and is part-dryad, so comes with a nature emphasis too.
* [[BoisterousBruiser Brian O'Neill]] as well as [[HalfIdenticalTwins his children]] [[{{Tsundere}} Molly]] and [[FieryRedhead Michael]], in Claire Madras's Ireland-set HistoricalFiction novel ''Sissi in Ireland''.
%%* The HotWitch from Oscar Wilde's "The Fisherman and his Soul"
* The heroine of ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'', Clary Fray has green eyes and red hair. She got them from her mother Jocelyn.
* Literature/PippiLongstocking.
* Literature/SisterFidelma from the books by Peter Tremayne.
%%* Hexene Candlemas, the witch in ''Literature/CityOfDevils'' and [[Literature/FiftyFeetOfTrouble its sequel]].
* Literature/ElsabethSoesten, the main protagonist of the eponymous ''Adventures of Elsabeth Soesten'', has copper hair and green eyes as prominent character traits.
%%* Reporter Oran Ellis has red hair and green eyes in ''Literature/TheManWhoBroughtTheDodgersBackToBrooklyn''.
%%* [[spoiler:Celty Sturluson]] in ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'', as shown at the end in one episode.
%%** [[spoiler:Mika Harima has a plastic surgery that makes her head looks exactly the same as Celty above. Much to the latter's [[HeroicBSOD shock]]]].
* Ruby-haired, emerald-eyed [[TheHighQueen Aristomache]] of ''Literature/TheFirstDwarfKing'' is one of the most notable characters in the book who isn't Jani.
** [[FieryRedhead Iris]] would also count, save for the fact that she has blue eyes instead of green.
* The protagonist of the first ''Literature/WarriorCats'' books is a green-eyed, red furred cat named "Rusty" who runs off to live in a feral cat community. Rusty is given the MeaningfulRename of "Firepaw" (which ultimately becomes "Firestar") after joining Thunderclan due to his pelt colour.
* ''Literature/{{Neogicia}}'' has a variation on this. The (naturally) RedHeadedHeroine lives in a world in which eight different eye colors are possible depending on the magic to which they are the most attuned to at birth. She undergoes a BioAugmentation that cuts people off from the magic system and makes their eyes silver. ''Before'' the procedure, she had a natural predisposition toward the kind of magic that makes people's eyes green.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Myth/{{Merlin}} in the [[Series/Merlin1998 1998 miniseries]], where it appears that both young and old Merlins's eyes were digitally enhanced to be green beyond reality.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' features [[Creator/CatherineTate Donna Noble]], "the most important woman in the whole wide universe," and [[Creator/KarenGillan Amy Pond]], "the girl who waited."
* ''Series/BuffytheVampireSlayer'' has Willow Rosenberg. In the first season, Willow's magical powers are not evident, and her hair is light brown (Hannigan's natural color). By the fourth season, she is a practicing witch with a hotter temper, and her hair is a bright, fiery red.

* In Music/DollyParton's song "Jolene", the titular character (and the narrator's romantic rival) has "flaming locks of auburn hair" and "eyes of emerald green".
* William Sheller's song "Les miroirs dans la boue" (The Mirrors in the Mud) is all about a young girl with "green eyes bathed in red hair" ("les yeux verts noyés de cheveux roux").
* Music/GaelicStorm's Green Eyes, Red Hair is all about this. The woman in question overlaps with FieryRedhead too.
* The title character of Erutan's "The Willow Maid", who is described as having "hair like fire, her eyes an emerald sheen", a tree fairy that a young man becomes infatuated with and tries repeatedly to get her to go with him.

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* Thor in Myth/NorseMythology is a rough tough badass god, who happens to be redheaded and green-eyed. Yet when he had to cross-dress as a woman in ''Thrymskvida'', all the giants were so smitten by [[AttractiveBentGender "her" dazzling looks]] that they failed to notice many, many less-than-subtle hints of a trap. Also thanks to Loki pretending to be his handmaiden and running interference for that kind of thing.

[[folder:Puppet Shows]]
* Julia from ''Series/SesameStreet'', the show's first autistic muppet.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Of the pantheon worshiped by humans in the ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'', the green-eyed redhead, Sune, is the LoveGoddess.
* Natasha Kerensky from [[Franchise/BattletechExpandedUniverse BattleTech]]. enough that fans suggested a then-70-year-old Maureen O'Hara as a perfect match for Natasha in the 3050s

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'':
** The BridgeBunny Kelly Chambers is probably the most trouble-free and relaxing romantic interest ([[BiTheWay for both genders]]), and the only redhead.
** Default female [[PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard]] is another example, whose first face model was given this coloration. Emphasizing the pervasiveness of this trope is that when a fan poll was created to choose the new look of Commander Shepard for ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', so many people indicated that their vote depended on getting a red-haired, green-eyed Shepard with their favorite face model (which was originally blonde) that the developers posted a second poll allowing people to pick the coloration, and the green-eyed redhead won by a large margin.
* Aveline Vallen in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', is the first companion you pick up and is a green-eyed redhead. Unusually she's also one of the two companions (besides Hawke's siblings) who cannot be Hawke's LoveInterest. Much of her character plot in the game focuses on her surprising subversion of gender roles, so it's possible this coloration was picked for that reason.
* If you squint hard enough, you'll notice that pre-zergification Sarah Kerrigan from ''VideoGame/StarCraft'' series had grayish-green eyes (especially on that photo Raynor has of her in ''[=SC2=]''), and she was a redhead.
* Luke Fon Fabre from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss''. This is actually a plot point, as a noble with red hair and green eyes has a great role in a prophesy that will lead to world prosperity. Asch the Bloody is also a green-eyed red head, which is significant because [[spoiler:in truth, ''he's'' the redhead from the prophesy, and Luke is only his clone.]]
** It later becomes a plot point that [[spoiler:Natalia is not one of these, as every blood member of the Kimlascan royal family is a green-eyed redhead.]]
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'' gives us Eleanor, who ironically shares the same best Mystic Arte with Luke: Lost Fon Drive. [[spoiler:The fact she becomes the unofficial first (good) Shepherd of the distant past helps things]].
* Princess Carranya in part II of ''VideoGame/LoveAndWar'', who is the heroine and only playable female character in the episode. Whether she ends up as Ryan's love interest is [[ShipTease strongly hinted at]], but not confirmed.
* In the remake of ''VideoGame/TheSecretOfMonkeyIsland'', Elaine Marley, love interest of the hero, is given red hair and green eyes.
* Saya Kho in the ''VideoGame/{{X}}-Universe'' series. Red hair, green eyes, spectacular body, and she started a war that eventually resulted in the entire jumpgate network shutting down.
* ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'':
** The titular characters has green eyes and red ''fur''. His hair was red until ''VideoGame/CrashTwinsanity'' made it brown.
** His little sister Coco usually has the same fur and eye colors but is downplayed by her blonde hair.
* Triss Merigold, the main love interest in ''Videogame/TheWitcher'' and ''VideoGame/TheWitcher2AssassinsOfKings''. Interestingly, in Sapkowski's novels (on which the games are based) she has blue eyes.
* Misty from ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' is one of these. She's one of the most iconic gym leaders, partially because she's the second in the series but mostly because of the [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} anime]].
* Michael, the main character from ''VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness''.
* Elora from ''VideoGame/{{Spyro 2 Riptos Rage}}'' is a faun with red hair and green eyes. She's the main female character but [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome disappears]] aside from a cameo at the end of the third game.
* Gaige is your [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot mad scientist cyborg teen]] [[PreOrderBonus Pre-order]]/[[DownloadableContent DLC]] from VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}, surprisingly capable in taking out just as many bandits as a [[MusclesAreMeaningless seasoned veteran who recently got kicked out of the military]]. Oh, and [[CrazyAwesome she sawed her own arm off out of doing a science fair project]].
* The main character of ''VideoGame/StarFox'' is a green-eyed red fox named Fox [=McCloud=].
* Averted by Hong Meiling in ''VideoGame/TouhouProject'', who has this look despite being Chinese: she's the gatekeeper of the Scarlet Devil Mansion, but nobody respects her (that she's an excellent martial artist but not that good at danmaku might have something to do with it). Fanworks take it UpToEleven, often turning her into some variation of {{Woobie}}.
* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Urbosa and Riju of the [[OneGenderRace Gerudo]] have this look. While the Gerudo in general have a DarkSkinnedRedhead look, they typically have yellow eyes instead. Urbosa was the Gerudo Champion, while her descendant Riju is the current chief of the tribe.
* Axel in ''Series/KingdomHearts'' is a rare male example. He also gets Teardrop Tattoos. For significance, he has the most influence on the plot in his debut game outside of the actual villain and resisted every attempt by the development team to kill him off. [[spoiler: He is now a major character with a keyblade and his importance is near MICKEY MOUSE's level]]

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'':
** Penny, though she is not a FieryRedhead.
** Pyrrha Nikos has very long, very red hair and the greenest eyes of any character. She is one of Beacon's [[ChildProdigy star]] [[TheAce pupils]], being Mistral's four-times champion, and has a reputation for being untouchable, partly due to her extremely powerful Semblance, which controls magnetism. [[spoiler:She's also TooCoolToLive and TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth.]]
** Nora [[PhenotypeStereotype somehow also becomes this]] after having had blue eyes in Volume 1, perhaps to better resemble her inspiration (Thor).
** Incidentally, Neon Katt also qualifies for this trope.
* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' has Agent Carolina, the main character of the flashback parts of the Project Freelancer arc.

* Faun Muranaka in ''Literature/{{Tasakeru}}''.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* WesternAnimation/KimPossible, the main character, is both an ActionGirl and ActionGirlfriend example.
* Examples from the Franchise/DCAnimatedUniverse:
** Hawkgirl/Shayera, in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'', as shown in the trope image, notable in that she was traditionally portrayed with blue eyes in the comics.
** Lana Lang, in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', who, similar to Hawkgirl above, often didn't have green eyes.
** Pamela Isley, a.k.a. Poison Ivy, in the ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries Batman]]'' episode "Pretty Poison", when she uses her stunning looks to get close to the men who wronged her (one of them even proposes to her) and attempts to assassinate them.

** Fox, recurring villain employee of [[spoiler:and married to]] the other main antagonist David Xanatos.
* Starfire from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''. When she's actively using her powers, she has solid green eyes like her comic book counterpart. When she's not, her eyes have are more like normal human "green eyes", but the sclera (the "white" of the eye) is ''also'' green (a paler shade than the iris).
* Kiva from ''WesternAnimation/MegasXLR'', the only major female character, the only redhead, one of the best looking characters from the show, and in an alternate reality/bad future timeline, an eventual love interest of Jamie.
* Sam from ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'', the only redhead of the group (and the rest of the group follows typical cartoon colorations with black hair and brown eyes and blonde hair and blue eyes). She even wears green as her color!
* Gwen Tennyson from ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}''. The main female character, cousin to the main character, and a part of the most prominent love story in the series with eventual group member Kevin.
* The title character in ''WesternAnimation/AtomicBetty''.
* Pickles the drummer in ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' has this sort of coloring, and in his case it's probably due to being "very Irish-American."
%%* Aerrow from ''WesternAnimation/StormHawks''.
* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'':
** Kid Flash/Wally West, in accordance to his comic book counterpart.
** Garfield Logan--temporarily. His eyes start out blue, then turn green later. [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb57525/youngjustice/images/5/59/Beast_Boy.PNG The rest of him followed suit.]]
* Gosalyn Mallard from ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'', although the fiery still comes through loud and clear.

* Precious from ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' has green eyes and red fur.
%%* An interesting male version is [[TheStoic Nonny]] from ''WesternAnimation/BubbleGuppies''.
* Prototypical TJ from ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' was this. In the final product he's a brunette and has typical, cartoony black eyes.
* Valerie Frizzle from ''Literature/MagicSchoolBus''. Though in the cartoon and book series she, like the kids, usually has typical cartoon eyes, we do get to see her eye color in one book: ''Explores the Senses''.
* A male example, Dr. Krieger from ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' is red-headed, as well as one of the only two green-eyed main characters (along with Lana Kane).
* In ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'', [[CloudCuckooLander Izzy]]'s red hair is more toward the orange end of the spectrum--the color of fire--to emphasize her {{pyromaniac}} tendencies. Not only are her eyes green, she also [[RedheadInGreen typically wears green]].
* WordOfGod is Wendy from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' is this however the art style doesn't show her eye color. She's one of the Pines twins best friends and works at the Mystery Shack.
* Frankie, like everyone in ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'', has BlackBeadEyes however her drivers license states she has green eyes. Frankie works at Foster's and is one of Mac's best friends, and the [[PrecociousCrush object of his affections]].
* The titular protagonist of ''WesternAnimation/StrawberryShortcake'' has GreenEyes in the 2009 incarnation.
* Sunset Shimmer in the first ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls2013'' is a rare antagonist version of this trope. However, she undergoes a HeelFaceTurn at the end of the movie, with all films ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'' and onwards having her as the protagonist, fitting the common use of it.
* [[WesternAnimation/BettyBoop Betty Boop's]] usual black hair is colored red and her eyes green in her one and only colored cartoon, "WesternAnimation/PoorCinderella". Now a days her eyes are still usually a light green but [[RavenHairIvorySkin her hair continues to be it's original black]].
* The leader of The Hex Girls, Thorn, from ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheWitchsGhost'' has green eyes and black hair highlighted red. The highlights were removed in subsequent appearances for scaring children however ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' brought them back. In ''The Witch's Ghost'' Thorn is a character that Mystery Inc must help.
* Calamity Jane in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfCalamityJane'', probably as part of the mysterious gunslinger Western persona.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* Probably the most significant figure of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries was UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan, who had red hair and green eyes according to Mongol and Kazakh folk tales and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rashid-al-Din_Hamadani Rashid al-Din]]'s histories. Red hair and green eyes are [[AluminumChristmasTrees more common in Central Asia than one might expect]] [[note]]albeit often more muted than in the West -- for example, Central Asian red hair is browner than the bright ginger shades seen in Northern Europe[[/note]], but modern depictions usually ignore these traits, perhaps because [[RealityIsUnrealistic today's audiences would have a hard time believing that an Asian man could have red hair and green eyes]].
* Several celebrities (who are significant by virtue of being, well, celebrities) have red hair and green eyes:
** The aforementioned Creator/MaureenOHara
** Creator/RupertGrint
** Creator/CatherineTate
** Creator/TildaSwinton and Creator/BenedictCumberbatch, although [[DyeHard you'd be forgiven for not knowing that their hair is naturally red]]. Cumberbatch's eyes can also look blue or gray depending on the lighting.
** Creator/KarenGillan, although her eyes are more hazel than pure green.
** Creator/DomhnallGleeson
