->''"I'm always in a pink mood!"''
-->-- '''Franchise/{{Barbie}}''', ''WebAnimation/BarbieLifeInTheDreamhouse'' episode "The Upgradening"

For many modern cultures, the color pink has become the color meaning femininity, in all its forms. This means that the more feminine a woman is the likely she is to wear pink in fiction. It's also why it's thought girls appreciate pink things more than other colors.

The form of the pink is best done with elegant clothing (like the walls on her bedroom and the furniture), but even something "manly" being colored pink would count for this trope. Heck, even a dress that's not normally pink, like a FairytaleWeddingDress, could be either colored pink (for being non-[[VirginInAWhiteDress traditional]], but still feminine), or have pink trimmings (usually in the form of a bouquet with pink flowers). A woman wearing sexy pink clothes can look [[LightFeminineAndDarkFeminine naughty and nice]] at the same time.

This trope is NewerThanTheyThink. Pink is a shade of red, and red (being the color of blood) was considered masculine (though this hasn't always been the case; though pink as a feminine colour is recent, a LadyInRed is OlderThanDirt). [[TrueBlueFemininity Blue was the feminine hue]] (because it was associated with the Virgin Mary), and still is in some parts of the world.

The strong association of pink and a girly sort of womanhood makes this a delicate trope to navigate. For instance, a {{Tomboy}} will refuse to wear pink and her opposite, the GirlyGirl, will insist on it. A favorite twist is to bring the "feminine and delicate" connotations into hard contrast with an ActionGirl's rough, tough, and indelicate career. Expect the GirlyBruiser to wear pink while kicking ass. RealMenWearPink also plays on the contrast (often humorous) which comes up when a "manly" man is shown to enjoy "girly" pursuits.

By the way, this can include any shade of pink, even those that cross with other colors (like fuchsia, a purple and pink color). This is why the GracefulLadiesLikePurple trope exists.

A SubTrope of TertiarySexualCharacteristics.

!!A SuperTrope to:
* PinkGirlBlueBoy (a boy and girl explicitly wear their respective colors)
* PinkHeroine
* PinkIsForSissies (mocking a guy for wearing pink)
** RealMenWearPink (a guy so obviously or comfortably masculine that he averts the above)
* PinkProductPloy (advertising trope where a pink version of a product is offered)
* PrincessesPreferPink
* RoseHairedSweetie

A SisterTrope to GracefulLadiesLikePurple (and can overlap with colors like fuchsia), TrueBlueFemininity.

!!Examples (not covered in the sub tropes):


[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Manga/BlackButler'''s Lizzy on more than one occasion makes the manor look like a dragon puked pink all over the inside. Also, when Ciel crossdresses, he wears an absurd amount of pink.
* ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis'':
** Sylia Stingray, the brilliant if flighty and eccentric leader of the Knight Sabers - whose day job is running a clothing outlet - uses this trope to humiliate her tomboyish singing biker teammate Priss Asagiri by forcing Priss to wear and be photographed wearing an ugly pink dress when Priss loses a bet with her, much to the amusement of everyone else (it made more sense in the original Japanese version than in the English dub). Naturally this came back to bite Sylia and the team in the ass when Sylia's ugly secrets came out, prompting Priss to tell Sylia and the team to go to Hell and leave them for a short spell.
** Pink is a prominent color in Nene's hard suit. 2040 indicates that she and Linna have some pink unmentionables.
* All of the chosen girls' ''Anime/{{Digimon|Adventure}}'' have pink heavily featured in most of their forms. Sora's Yokomon and Biyomon are both pink all over though the Champion and Ultimate forms change to red/maroon. Mimi's Palmon has a pink flower for hair while her Ultimate form Lillymon is entirely pink, as is her Mega form Rosemon. Kari's Gatomon isn't pink in any of her early forms but Angewomon has a pink shawl and her Heaven's Charm attack creates a heavenly wave of pink energy. One of her Mega forms Magnadramon is also a pink dragon. Plus the crests of Love and Light (Sora's and Kari's) are represented by rose pink and pale pink respectively.
* Dola, the leader of the {{Sky Pirate}}s in ''Anime/CastleInTheSky'', likes pink and has long hair in GirlishPigtails.
* In ''Manga/DaiNoDaibouken'', Leona and Maam wear pink.
* From ''Manga/{{Doraemon}}'' Shizuka's signature colour is pink, and in most places she is represented by the colour pink. Also her regular dress is pink.
* In ''Manga/DragonBall'', Chi-Chi's armor is blue. Her boots, gloves, and helmet are pink.
* In ''Animation/FloweringHeart'', while all the girls are girly to some degree, Jean is the only one explicitly interested in feminine things, and her hair and outfits are pink.
* Rabbit Team from ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'' paints their M3 Lee pink prior to their training match against St. Gloriana Women's Academy for this reason. They switch back to green for the National Tournament, with the only pink remaining being their KillerRabbit logo.
* In the ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' franchise, there are multiple examples of female pilots whose mobile suits have pink paintjobs and/or pink pilot suits. It's not true of every female pilot, but enough to be notable. Some of the notable examples of this include [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED the Strike Rouge]], whose suit takes on a pinkish hue when its Phase Shift armor is active, [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Lacus Clyne]], who wears a pink flight suit, her replacement Meer Campbell, who is ferried around in a pink ZAKU Warrior and [[Anime/GundamBuildFighters Kirara]], who controls a pink Gerbera Tetra.
** Also, in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'', Relena was given a pink limousine by her parents.
* PlayedWith throughout the ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' franchise: the title character herself, a rather feminine young woman, has pink as the default color of her magic... which she usually uses to deliver [[DefeatMeansFriendship a world of pain to her prospective friends and family]]. Then, we have Signum, a LadyOfWar who sports [[LongHairIsFeminine luscious waist-long]] pink hair... and is widely regarded as the manliest character in the series. Lastly, Caro Ru Lushe, whose hair ''and'' magic are pink... is a GirlyGirl (and one of the most obviously heterosexual ones in this [[HoYay Les Yay]]-laden franchise, to boot), merrily playing this trope straight, even though she can summon dragons and huge dragons.
* In the ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'' art and series, Emmeraude's outfit is white, and Alcyone's outfit is red. In ''Anime/RayearthOVA'', their outfits are pink.
* Though one of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime's more tomboyish cast members, Misty's got enough of a [[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak girly streak]] to rock a pink cardigan in ''Anime/{{Pokemon 2000}}''.
* As a "girl power" series, ''Anime/PrettyCure'' loves the color pink, and the main girl of each series will always have ''some'' pink in her outfit. Notably, the girl in pink isn't always a GirlyGirl -- while that was the case [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 in]] [[Anime/FreshPrettyCure some]] [[Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure other]] [[Anime/SmilePrettyCure seasons]], the [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure earlier]] [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar seasons]] and one of the [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure later ones]] have the tomboy wear pink instead.
* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', each girl has a different MagicalGirl costume with its own color scheme that matches their [[CurtainsMatchTheWindow hair and eyes]]. Naturally, Madoka, easily the nicest and most vulnerable of the main cast, has pink as her main color.
* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' examines, deconstructs and plays with this trope. The main character Utena is heavily associated with pink, having pink hair, occasionally wearing pink dresses and associated with pink roses. It's one of the very few concessions to femininity in an otherwise Tomboyish character, thus seemingly subverting the stereotype. However, it's played straight and deconstructed as Utena wears pink dresses when she acts/becomes more feminine. The deconstruction comes in that she's wearing pink and acting feminine because people manipulated her into doing so, taking advantage of her naive and trusting nature to subtly force her into a "princess" role. [[DeconstructorFleet Yea it's that]] [[RuleOfSymbolism kind of anime]].
** Played straight in the finale with [[spoiler: Anthy who trades her red dress and school uniform for a pink travel suit]]. Unlike above, it's a triumphant moment as she rejects [[LadyInRed the uniform and role that others have forced on her]] for her own outfit.
* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'':
** The title character usually wears red, white, blue, and yellow in her fuku, however her "aura" color appears to be pink, as whenever she's using an attack, pink is usually her main color. Her bow is also pink in [[Theatre/SeraMyu the musicals]] and [[Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon the live-action drama]].
** Sailor Chibi Moon's fuku always has pink, not to mention that her hair is pink.
** Sailor Jupiter's dominant colour is light green but has pink for an accent colour, possibly since despite being the group's resident {{Tomboy}} she's also the most skilled at the traditionally feminine domestic arts like [[FeminineWomenCanCook cooking]].
** It should be noted that in the case of Sailor Moon herself, pink does not ''necessarily'' mean feminine. Sure, there's a reason why [[RealWomenDontWearDresses she's caught some flak from groups that oppose stereotypical femininity]], but compared to some other characters (Naru Osaka, Sailor Mercury, and Sailor Neptune) she's somewhat of a tomboy herself, a trait which was particularly alluded to in early seasons.
* In ''Anime/SamuraiPizzaCats'' (''Kyatto Ninden Teyandee''), Polly/Pururun wears pink armor.
* Ichigo Momomiya/Mew Ichigo, the leader of the Mew Mews from ''Manga/TokyoMewMew''.
* ''Manga/WeddingPeach'' has the color appearing in several places, from the weapons to {{Transformation Sequence}}s (and that's not even taking Momoko's [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair hair]] into account).
* Kyoko from ''Anime/HeatGuyJ'', both her hair and her usual outfit. It also (along with a strand of IdiotHair) symbolizes her innocence compared to the [[DysfunctionJunction other characters]]; she is the only main character who comes from an intact and relatively normal family.
* In ''Manga/CardCaptorSakura'', Clow Reed designed the staff that Sakura uses as her MagicWand with a young girl in mind. Even after [[spoiler: Sakura transforms it]], it's still pink. Also, some of her outfits are pink, most memorably the rubber dress-and-pinafore she wore to catch the Thunder Card.
* ''Manga/YuGiOh'': The school uniforms of the Domino High School has the BlueBoyPinkGirl dynamic; the girls wear pink blazers with blue skirts, while the boys wear completely blue uniforms.
* ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'': Subverted. The female students in Yuma and Kotori's year wear uniforms with the color pink, but the girls in Shark and Rio's year wear uniforms with the color turquoise.
* ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'':
** Yuzu is one of the girlier versions among her {{Identical Stranger}}s, having two shades of pink as her hair color, a pink Duel Disk, pink shoes, a deck composed of singing fairies with a flower motif, and she even draws a pink light during her Destiny Draw. Coincidently or not, since her school uniform have either a pink necktie or a pink ribbon as an accessory, she wears a pink necktie as part of her NonUniformUniform.
** Rin, one of Yuzu's counterparts, is at least as obsessed with the color pink as Yuzu, although she has two shades of green hair. However, all of Rin's clothes include the color pink and her D-Wheel is completely pink and white. Her fondness of the color becomes so convenient when Yuzu happens to borrow some of her outfits and her D-Wheel. This might be justified, since both of them are portrayed to be the most similar counterparts.
* In ''Anime/YuYuHakusho'' it's revealed to [[spoiler: fake]] Kuwabara that Hiei has a sister. He calls her ugly and imagines her looking just like Hiei, only wearing pink instead of black. [[spoiler: Made all the more funnier because the audience knows Yukina is Hiei's sister, and Kuwabara doesn't.]]


[[folder:Asian Animation]]
* ''Animation/PakdamPakdai'': GenderInverted with Doggy Don, although [[InTouchWithHisFeminineSide he can be pretty feminine nonetheless]].

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* The Wiki/NickelodeonFanon series [[http://nickfanon.wikia.com/wiki/Y-Guy Y-Guy]] has Hearty, who's literally a pink heart.
* One-off character [[GirlOfTheWeek Maria]] from ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'' wears a pink sweater and hairband.
* The ''FanFic/NewLookSeries'' has several examples of this.
** Princess Peach, obviously.
** The dresses that Peach forces Link to wear.
** The girly outfit that Gwen forces Ben to wear in Ben's New Look.
* In ''Fanfic/HogwartsSchoolOfPrayerAndMiracles'', Hermione, being a model of Christian femininity, always wears fetching pink dresses and skirts.
* [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/288365/fallout-equestria---the-chrysalis Fallout: Equestria - The Chrysalis]]: Sickle is a ''very heavy'' inversion. She's got a pink coat and mane, and is a flat-out [[TheBrute Brute]] who somehow manages to be even less feminine than [[TheLadette Rainbow Dash.]]

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* In ''Disney/BigHero6'', Honey Lemon's battle suit is largely pink, tying in to her personality. Also, when she first appears in the movie, she demonstrates her "chemical metal embrittlement" experiment, which turns a large ball of tungsten-carbide pink before reverting it into dust.
* This trope is less common for Disney princesses than their merchandise would have us believe, but it still shows up in the DisneyAnimatedCanon now and then:
** In ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'', Cinderella originally plans to wear her mother's pink dress to the ball, which the mice and birds fancy up for her, but the stepsisters rip it to shreds.
** In ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' Flora and Merriweather row over what colour Aurora's dress is to be. Naturally the more feminine Flora insists that it must be pink, though the dress spends most of the film blue.
** Maid Marian's costume in ''Disney/RobinHood'' is pink and [[GracefulLadiesLikePurple lavender.]]
** In ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron,'' Eilonwy's skirt is pink.
** In ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid,'' Ariel wears a pink gown to her first dinner at Prince Eric's castle and sleeps in a pink nightgown.
** In ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast,'' Belle wears a pink dress during the "Something There" sequence.
** Megara from ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' wears a light lavender-pink dress with a slit on the side with a dark pink sash around the waist.
** Disney/{{Mulan}} wears a pink dress to visit the matchmaker while she is given tips about being a HouseWife.
** Charlotte [=LaBouff=] from ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' is obsessed with the color pink, since she never grew out of her PrincessPhase, and because PrincessesPreferPink.
** In ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', Rapunzel spends most of the film in a [[GracefulLadiesLikePurple lavender]] dress, but wears a pink one in the final scene.
** This trope is used for a joke in ''Disney/WreckItRalph''. The castle in ''Sugar Rush'' is very pink, much to the annoyance of King Candy (who desperately insists to Ralph that [[BlatantLies it's clearly salmon]]). [[spoiler: It also serves as handy foreshadowing, since the castle was originally supposed to belong to a girl, Princess Vanellope Von Schweetz.]]
* Kim in ''WesternAnimation/TheCareBearsMovie'' has a pink hair bow and sweater.
* Clara from ''WesternAnimation/TheNutcrackerPrince'' has a pink bow and pink [[PrettyInMink fur-trimmed]] winter coat.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Bond Girl Plenty O'Toole wore bright pink panties with light blue/purple lace when stripped of her purple dress in ''Film/DiamondsAreForever''.
* ''Film/HarryPotter'':
** Hermione Granger wore an airy pink dress (with a purple sash around the waist) to the Yule Ball in the film adaptation of ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire''. It's used to show her make a girl-into-woman Cinderella entrance. Fans were neither happy nor impressed as the dress was clearly stated to be blue in [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire the book]].
** Hermione again gets a pink dress, albeit of different design, for a brief Christmas Party gathering in the film adaptation of ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince''.
* Sharpay Evans of ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'' is a drama queen and high school diva who wants everything to be fabulous which results in a lot of pink.
* ''Film/LegallyBlonde'': Elle wears pink to stand out from the rest of the crowd and to emphasise her femininity.
* ''Film/MeanGirls''. The Plastics have these rules surrounding the color pink, which they must wear every Wednesday. Tomboy Janis owns nothing pink while AmbiguouslyGay Damian of course has a pink polo shirt.
* In ''Film/SuzieQ'', Suzie wears a pink evening dress, and her mother comments that she finally got her daughter to wear fancy clothes. Possibly also an ActorAllusion, since in at least one film, Suzie Q was played by Amy Jo Johnson, a former Pink Power Ranger who (for a time) was quite annoyed by her time in pink.
* In ''Film/TheSoundOfMusic'' Marta enthusiastically says she wants a pink parasol for her birthday. Maria agrees and says that pink is her favourite colour too.
* Glinda's outfit in ''Film/TheWizardOfOz''.

* Subverted in the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'' where the eight-foot-tall CuteMonsterGirl, Sergeant Taura had been told that pink would make her look less intimidating. Because of this, most of her civilian wardrobe is a nearly fluorescent pink that does NOT work on her. One of the running gags in ''Literature/WinterfairGifts'' is the efforts of the rest of the cast to correct her of this fallacy.
* ''Literature/HarryPotter'':
** Dolores Umbridge surrounds herself with pink, even painting the DADA instructor's office the color in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'', to try to cover up her {{Jerkass}} nature.
** As well, when the Weasley twins open their shop in Diagon Alley, they have a range of items marketed to girls which are all pink.
* April Devereux from ''Literature/HalfMoonInvestigations'' had a "Pink Club", [[spoiler:which turned out to be a cover for a club determined to get girls a good education and will go to any measure to do so.]]
* In ''Literature/{{Paranormalcy}}'' by Kiersten White, ActionGirl protagonist Evie has a rhinestone-studded pink taser named Tasey, wears killer pink boots, and refuses to carry a knife until she is given one that is, you guessed it, pink.
* A minor running gag in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' books. ''Discworld/MonstrousRegiment'' mentions that girls of around seven are magnetically attracted to the color pink, however they feel about it later. Brought up again in ''Discworld/MakingMoney'' where Adora Belle Dearheart says that ''every'' girl of approximately eight years of age loves the color pink. This is used to rule out that the Cabinet of Curiosity at Unseen University could have been designed for a little girl, since it contains nothing pink.
* The books of ''Literature/AngelinaBallerina'', and its cartoon adaptations, put Angelina in a pink tutu.
* Cindy, Chris and Cathy's very girly adopted daughter in the Creator/VCAndrews Literature/DollangangerSeries, notes that "I love pink, really adore pink," and has a bathroom decorated in pink with gold and green accents.
* Allriane Cett in ''Literature/MistbornTheOriginalTrilogy'' is frequently described only by her pinkness.
* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': Madge Undersee wears a pink hair ribbon with her white dress to the reaping of the 74th Hunger Games.
* In ''[[http://original.adult-fanfiction.org/story.php?no=600108024 Danse Macabre: Overture]]'', the narrator remarks that- even offstage- the ballet dancer [[FemmeFatale Collette]] "swathed herself in more baby pink than most parents did their newborn girls."
* The protagonist of Creator/RobinJarvis' ''Literature/DeptfordMice'' trilogy, a mouse girl named Audrey, always wears a pink ribbon in her hair.
* ''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Kallen implies that she dropped out of the Royal Academy of Magical Learning because [[DefiedTrope she didn't like wearing the girl's uniform]] which was very pink.
* Invoked in the children's book ''Sugarpink Rose'' - the female elephants are told to eat only anemones and peonies that grow inside a fenced enclosure all of their lives to get and maintain the desired smooth, 'sugarpink rose' colored skin and wear pink booties and ribbons to accentuate their pinkness.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': The dress Roose Bolton's men find for Brienne to wear whilst at Harrehal is a very loud shade of pink. She looks like she's just waiting for the opportunity to murder whoever put her in it the entire time she's wearing it. In the books, Jaime surmises it's a form of psychological warfare on Bolton's part. House Bolton is known across the Seven Kingdoms as a House of torturers who get at their victims by playing on their weaknesses, and there's nothing that would infuriate Brienne more than being made to wear not just an ugly dress, but an ugly ''pink'' dress.
* TheChick in ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' shows would usually wear pink (which also influenced similar shows, such as ''Anime/GoLion'', and any parodies, such as the Axem Rangers of ''Videogame/SuperMarioRPG''). Carried over into ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', of course, where Pink Rangers usually get pegged as the GirlyGirl.
** Played with in ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger''. The gimmick of copying previous Rangers allows them to mix up the GenderedOutfit thing, but pink is easily the rarest colour used by someone else. There was exactly one all-pink morph in the show's run, and that was the ''Gavan'' crossover movie.
** The sleep-inducing MonsterOfTheDay Somnibot in ''Series/PowerRangersZeo'' wears a pink nightcap and her eyes glow pink for a few seconds in some ''Ohranger'' footage.
** Played with in ''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce'', where Vida the Pink Ranger is about as un-feminine as you can get and was ''pissed'' at getting stuck with the pink suit with the ''pop-out butterfly wings.'' (This is a hilarious reversal of its parent sentai, too, where Magi Pink was {{Kawaiiko}} ''squared.'') During ''Turbo'' / ''In Space,'' the more girly fashion-conscious Ashley is the Yellow Ranger, while the (slightly) more brash, tomboyish musician Cassie was Pink.
** Averted in Time Force. Pink is Jen, a badass with a vengeful streak and TheLeader of the team (Red gets the usual standing-in-center priveleges because that's the rule, though.) There wasn't a GirlyGirl that year at all. ''Yellow'' is a girl with SuperStrength who loves to use it. However, Katie's more sentimental side comes out a lot more than Jen's.
** Played with in ''Series/ResshaSentaiTokkyuger'', where the Rangers are distinguished more by number than colour. They still have 'default' colours but can swap them around, including the default pink and red trading places.
** Averted in ''Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger'' with the first pink member of a Ninja-themed Sentai, Kasumi/[=MomoNinger=]. She's actually the [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]] of the team, who works on all their technology. It's Fuka/[=ShiroNinger=], the white Ninninger, who fulfills the role of TheChick.
* In the ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode "[[{{Recap/FireflyE04Shindig}} Shindig]]", Kaylee wears a pink PimpedOutDress as part of her PrincessForADay.
* The Female Changeling, the {{bigger bad}} from ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', wears a flowing pink garment in her humanoid form.
* Prairie Dawn from ''Series/SesameStreet''. Subverted with Zoe, however - despite wearing a pink tutu, she's a {{Tomboy}}.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* In the Wrestling/{{W|orld Wrestling Federation}}WF the original Women's title had a pink strap on it, that the {{reviv|al}}ed FCW Divas' title also is modelled after. The WWE Divas' Championship is also designed pink and the Divas' logo is pink. When they have to promote a Diva's match with a graphic, there's always some pink in the background and the text is normally pink as well.
* Mighty Molly (Wrestling/MollyHolly as [[Wrestling/GregoryHelms the Hurricane's]] superhero sidekick) wore a pink and black outfit.
* In a way Wrestling/NatalyaNeidheart defied this trope whenever she wore pink as it was a reference to her Hart family lineage, whose colours are pink and black. So Nattie never comes across as feminine when she's seen wearing pink ring gear.
* Hailey Hatred has complained about this trope, as she loves pink and once randomly expressed desire for an all pink room, which she kept suppressing out of fear it would chase away all the pink hating boys.
* When Wrestling/{{CZW}} acquired long term rival Wrestling/{{WSU}}, the locker room section of the later was signified by pink on their website, as WSU had become an all women's promotion by then. CZW is still willing to use pink tape for the ring itself [[DownplayedTrope even when no females are present though]].
* When Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} was around everything was red or grey but after it broke off Wrestling/RingOfHonor initially settled on purple when it decided to give the women of honor their own logo, then pink was increasingly used in video packages.[[note]]SHIMMER itself does use pink for the letters on the tag plates but otherwise gold, black, purple and white are its most prominent colors[[/note]]
* Allysin Kay, a staple of the aforementioned WSU, SHIMMER and WOH, has at times been muzzled when not in matches, ala [[Literature/RedDragon Hannibal]] [[Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs Lecter]]. This safety precaution differs from his, of course, by being pink.
* Davey Richards, Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly all took up mouth guards after debuting for ROH but only Kelly Klein's was pink, which makes it look like she simply has no teeth when she glowers for poster photos.

* One female misfit among the protagonists in ''Theatre/MichaelJacksonONE'', Shy, wears pink.
* ''Theatre/SteelMagnolias''
-->'''Shelby:''' Pink is my signature color.
* In ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'', Glinda wears a pink dress to the Ozdust Ballroom party and in her subsequent bonding scene with Elphaba in Act I ("Pink goes good with green"), in which she sings the ultimate {{Lovable Alpha Bitch}} anthem "Popular". Though surprisingly, unlike in ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'', pink isn't used as her signature color throughout in fact her gown that corresponds to the film Glinda's iconic pink one is {{True Blue Femininity}} instead.

* Franchise/{{Barbie}} has been wearing pink since at least the "Enchanted Evening" doll from 1960, and even has a copyrighted color of "Barbie Pink".
%%If there is an earlier doll wearing pink, just replace the name in the above entry with the appropriate one.
* In ''Toys/PollyPocket'', Polly doesn't always wear pink, but she is certainly not adverse to wearing pink. Most of her play sets are incredibly pink.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': The body of the original toy release of Princess Celestia in the Hasbro toy line was pink colored and not white as in the show, apparently to appeal to little girls. It was however changed when the [[PeripheryDemographic "bronies"]] complained.
* Similarly for the PowerRangersDinoCharge toyline, the Pink Ranger's Triceratops zord was initially indigo in the toyline in an effort to appeal to young boys, despite it being pink in the show. But due to fan outrage [[https://twitter.com/Odot92/status/502590059221364737 it was changed back to Pink]].
* In 2013, Toys/NerfBrand started producing and selling a line of pink, white, and purple blasters, called the [[http://nerf.wikia.com/wiki/Rebelle Nerf Rebelle]] line. Most of the toys are 'reshells,' using the same internal components of existing toys, just with a much smoother, less rugged or militaristic outer design, such as the [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies Zombie Strike]] "[[http://nerf.wikia.com/wiki/Hammershot Hammershot]]" becoming the "[[http://nerf.wikia.com/wiki/Sweet_Revenge Sweet Revenge]]" or the "[[http://nerf.wikia.com/wiki/Firestrike_%28N-Strike_Elite%29 Firestrike]]" becoming the "[[http://nerf.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Shot Star Shot]]". At least they had the good taste to reshell several of the better, more popular guns to begin with. The only one that can claim much in the way of actual originality is the "[[http://nerf.wikia.com/wiki/Heartbreaker_Bow Heartbreaker Bow]]," but unfortunately it is one of the most ReliablyUnreliableGuns of the product line. The "Secrets and Spies" sub-line retains a more feminine design aesthetic and even includes entirely new, non-reshelled weapons, but favors purple instead of pink and having its main gimmick being red lens decoder darts.
* This trope shows up a lot with Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} merchandise. Even though [[http://static8.comicvine.com/uploads/scale_medium/8/84221/1744169-supergirlmatrixflying.gif her costume]] is red, blue, and yellow like Superman's, you'll find a lot of costumes that look like [[http://images.costumeexpress.com/mgen/pink-supergirl-toddler-child-costume-cx-31355.jpg?zm=1600,1600,1,0,0 this]].
* ''TabletopGame/{{Clue}}'' gained another female character in 2016, Dr. Orchid (at the expense of Mrs. White), who has a pink ColorMotif.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Maria's dress in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaRondoOfBlood''.
* In ''VideoGame/DragonQuestII'', the Princess of Moonbrooke wears pink.
* The favorite color of Kasumi, the central protagonist of the ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' series, is pink, and most of her casual and alternate clothing features pink in it.
* Referenced in ''VideoGame/DungeonsOfDredmor'', where the Razor Sword for Her is described as "pink and costing twice as much."
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'':
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'', Lenna's hair is pink.
** Vanille's [[BareYourMidriff pink top]] in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII''. Serah, who also has pink hair also dresses almost entirely in pink, in nearly all her outfits save for the ''Mass Effect'' cosplay DLC and the Style and Steel cosplay, which are both black instead.
** The [[SnakePeople Lamias]] in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' act really dainty (save for attacking the party), have pink scales, pink hair, and pink FluffyFashionFeathers for their headdress and GiantPoofySleeves.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' has Aerith's iconic pink dress and matching hair ribbon. She's the token WhiteMagicianGirl, but her personality isn't super feminine, she has a quick wit and some tomboyish streak.
* [[CuteMonsterGirl Sveta]] from ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'' dresses in an outfit of mostly pink and purple, while she [[CuteBruiser beats people to death with her bare hands.]]
* The Queen of all Cosmos in ''VideoGame/KatamariDamacy''.
* Kairi's outfit in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' introduces the character Ashley Williams in a pink uniform. Since it's a ''uniform,'' and Femshep doesn't wear pink, the color probably indicated unit affiliation rather than gender or [[NonuniformUniform fashion choice]], and Ashley's lost unit ''all'' wore pink. It could also be a manufacturer's mark, since all armour made by that particular manufacturer is in the same pink-and-white colour scheme.

[[folder:Web Original]]

-->"And she's paaaaaaaaaaaaaaank!"

* Robert Mandell's best-known creations, ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers'' and ''WesternAnimation/PrincessGwenevereAndTheJewelRiders'', were distinct contrasts on this trope. In the first, Niko was only shoved into a pink dress ''once'' (while she and Doc were heading to a BadGuyBar), protesting all the while. The latter cartoon was designed for a girl's toy line, and virtually ''everything'' was pastel, with the lead character rarely seen in any other color than pink.
* Brittany of the Chipettes in ''Franchise/AlvinAndTheChipmunks''; pink is her signature color. She is commonly seen wearing a pink skirt with a pink top and is the most girly (and vain) member of the trio.

* When ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' traveled to an AlternateUniverse, Gosalyn's counterpart was [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl feminine compared to the regular Gosalyn's tomboy]], and she wore a pink, frilly dress.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Dinosaucers}}'':
** Sarah wears pink tights.
** Teryx, the only female Dinosaucer, has pink skin and darker-pink armour.
* ''WesternAnimation/FlipperAndLopaka'': The female dolphin Ultra is pink, which visually distinguishes her from Flipper.
* Amy from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' wears a pink, midriff-baring sweatsuit a lot. However, "Into the Wild Green Yonder" reveals that it's actually a boy's sweatsuit.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'', there is ''so much'' pink.
* Jessie of ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures'' gets pink clothing, whether a shirt or StylishProtectionGear.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': Kaeloo enjoys wearing pink clothes and accessories from time to time.

** Fluttershy, who is very feminine, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin shy]] and gentle, has a pink mane and tail, as well as a partially pink cutie mark.
** Proper pink princess Cadance... who is nonetheless badass enough to singlehandedly defend her kingdom for weeks without sleep, and with assistance from her husband, she sent an enemy army flying over the horizon. Studio B likes to play with tropes, can you guess?
** Played straight by means of avoidance with the males. Although there are mares of every single color imaginable, there has yet to be a pink stallion.

* PlayedWith on ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. On the one hand, pink is repeatedly used for [[PosthumousCharacter Rose Quartz]], the title character's MissingMom--she had [[ColorCodedWizardry pink magic]], [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation pink skin]] [[RoseHairedSweetie and hair]], and her [[HeartDrive gem]] was, of course, a pink rose quartz. On the other hand, [[KidHero Steven]] himself inherited that gem, so he has a collection of pink powers despite being TheOneGuy of [[OneGenderRace the whole Gem species]]. [[InTouchWithHisFeminineSide He doesn't seem to mind]]. Steven does have a number of stereotypically feminine qualities but isn't overtly effeminate.
* In ''WesternAnimation/StrawberryShortcake'', the title character is representative of the color pink, in her 1980, 2003, and 2009 incarnations.
* Milli from ''WesternAnimation/TeamUmizoomi'' has a pink dress with flowers, a matching helmet, pink tights/stockings and pink shoes as her default outfit. She's an action girl, so it's a subversion.

* [[ThoseTwoGuys Katie and Sadie]] from ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'' both wear pink [[WhoWearsShortShorts short shorts]] and high-heeled sandals.
