Where characters with fair hair can be seen more frequently than expected for what should be a melting pot population. Specifically, you can see a disproportionate number of blondes for the setting when a show has no fewer than half of the female white cast being blonde. It can include the whole white cast -- and sometimes [[DarkSkinnedBlond more than that]], too. Similar to BlondeBrunetteRedhead, but on the other end of the scale. The thing is that film casters believe the audience finds blond hair to be beautiful, so if you want to be a movie star, it helps to look good with fair hair. It doesn't help that natural blonde tends to be darker with streaks of brown; even when blonde hair is naturally light, it's more pale and silvery or reddish. Meanwhile, these ladies will have heads full of golden yellow hair that clearly came out of a bottle. This situation can be perfectly justifiable - a family drama where most family members have blonde hair - but usually is not.

Any combination of the [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold sweet]], malicious, or {{dumb|Blonde}} blondes becomes Plenty of Blondes because you can't contrast something with itself. Each can be EveryoneLovesBlondes. Compare MonochromeCasting if it's one race in what should be a melting pot population, and PhenotypeStereotype when non-white media believes this is true of white people. This may be justified if some of them explicitly [[DyeHard dye their hair]]. May or may not be involved in {{Mukokuseki}} works.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Plenty of characters in ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' that aren't of Asian or African descent are blond -- justified as most of the characters are European. This is actually in keeping with both [[http://strangemaps.files.wordpress.com/2007/12/blond_hair_map1.jpg actual percentages of blond hair in Europe]] and national stereotypes -- the Nordics, for example, are all blond.
* The Claymores, an elite group of super humans from the ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' all of them are blondes, due the fact that their demon-infused powers give them that coloration and IcyBlueEyes. [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg Also]], [[BadassNormal Raki]].
* The Kalos-era main cast of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' features three blond characters (though Serena's hair is nearly brown), making Ash the only person in his group who isn't blond.
* ''Manga/SaintSeiya'': In the manga, aside from Deathmask, Shura and Dohko who are brunets and Camus who is a redhead, [[https://i.pinimg.com/originals/e6/bd/9b/e6bd9b3fae7501fdca5546dde0f8c623.jpg all the other Gold Saints have blond hair.]] The anime changed most of the hair color for a better color balance, but oddly enough, some members ended up [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair having blue hair.]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Creator/DCComics:
** Creator/PeterDavid poked fun at it by proposing a team up of two of the ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}s and ComicBook/PowerGirl [[http://www.peterdavid.net/archives/001127.html called "Blonde Justice"]]. Highly ironic since Peter David wrote the ''ComicBook/YoungJustice'' series in which all of the female teammates (Arrowette, Wondergirl, Secret) were blondes.
** ''ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey'' also had three blondes at one point (ComicBook/BlackCanary bleaches her hair, but that's beside the point) and Dove's hair was change to white to better differentiate her. The [[ComicBook/{{New 52}} reboot version]] of the team is a complete inversion since the team only has one blonde (the aforementioned Black Canary, who's not even natural) and in fact has two redheads instead.
** At one point Supergirl, ComicBook/{{Batgirl}} and Wonder Girl were all blondes. Originally the three characters were a BlondeBrunetteRedhead group, and then for a while [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl2000}} Batgirl was the black-haired, half-Asian Cassandra Cain]], but when she retired from the position more than a few people noticed the UnfortunateImplications of having her be [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl2009}} replaced by the white, blonde Stephanie Brown]]. After the ComicBook/{{New 52}} reboot, [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl2011}} Batgirl is again the red-haired Barbara Gordon]]. Wonder Girl originally had black hair until her successor Cassandra Sandsmark was a blonde.
* This [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m5osyiHCj71qkkhb4o1_1280.jpg picture]] summarizes the prevalence of blondes in DC and [[Creator/MarvelComics Marvel]].
* Sistah Spooky's FreudianExcuse in ''ComicBook/{{Empowered}}'' came about when she was cruelly tormented by every blond at her school.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/WhiteOleander'' has the daughter and three out of six mothers.
* In ''Film/TheHoliday'', both leading ladies count during the film despite Kate Winslet's brown hair in the poster.
* Creator/AlfredHitchcock definitely had [[AuthorAppeal a thing for blondes]], which is why most of his leading ladies are blonde. These include Tippi Hedren (from ''Film/TheBirds'' and ''Film/{{Marnie}}''),Creator/JanetLeigh, Creator/VeraMiles (both in ''Film/{{Psycho}}''), Creator/KimNovak (''Film/{{Vertigo}}''), Creator/EvaMarieSaint (''Film/NorthByNorthwest'') and Creator/GraceKelly (''Film/RearWindow'').
-->''"Blondes make the best victims."''
* ''Film/UptownGirls'' is filled with blondes.
* In ''Film/SoulSurfer'', every woman with a speaking part is a blonde (and maybe then some) except the native Hawaiian Malina Birch, Bethany's fierce rival.
* Inverted in ''Film/TheWorldsEnd'', as all the important female characters are blonde (except one redhead), whereas most of the extras are brunette in order to help them stand out.
* ''Film/{{Batman}}'' [[Film/BatmanReturns and]] [[Film/BatmanForever its]] [[Film/BatmanAndRobin sequels]]. It [[AdaptationDyeJob changes]] [[HotScoop Vicki Vale]], [[Comicbook/{{Batgirl}} Barbara Gordon]] and [[Comicbook/{{Catwoman}} Selina Kyle]] to blondes (in the comics the first two are redheads, the latter brunette), and CanonForeigner Chase Meridian is a strawberry blonde.

* In ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', families, for some reason, seem to more often than not all share the same hair colour. Which leads to the royal family being all red-haired, and some noble family being all blondes. With family sizes of up to fifty people or so, that is lots of red-haired and blonde people for a setting with some North American characteristics. Though the royal family might have achieved the red hair by inbreeding: They don't marry cousins, but they also don't marry commoners, leading to a small pool of marriageable noblemen for the princesses to choose from.
* In ''Literature/FlowersInTheAttic'' all of the Dollangangers have flaxen-blonde hair and they're our five main characters. The only character who doesn't have blonde hair is revealed to be wearing a grey-haired wig (though [[AdaptationDyeJob the movie gives her red hair]]). In this case it's something of a plot point since the two parents [[spoiler: are actually brother and sister]]. To be more precise, Christopher Dollanganger, the father of the four Dollanganger children, is [[spoiler: the child of Malcolm Foxworth (the grandfather in ''Literature/FlowersInTheAttic'') who raped Alicia Foxworth, his young stepmother]], while Corinne Dollanganger, the children's mother, is [[spoiler:also the child of Malcolm and Alicia]]. However, the two grow up believing that Christopher is [[spoiler:the son of Garland Foxworth, Malcolm's father, and therefore Malcolm's half-brother]] while Corinne is [[spoiler:the daughter of Malcolm and Olivia Foxworth]], making [[spoiler:Christopher half-uncle to Corinne]], rather than them being [[spoiler:full brother and sister]].
* ''Literature/TheBabysittersClub'': Three members of the titular club (Dawn, Stacey, and Shannon) are blonde, as are their families. Dawn believes that literally everyone from Southern California is blonde, which seems to be supported by the text. The entire "We <3 Kids Club" is blonde, along with Dawn's favorite California sitting charges and any Californians who happen to visit Stoneybrook.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' has four character in the younger generation. Two boys with shaggy blonde hair, Maddie with her wavy blonde locks, and an Asian. Their mother Carey has blonde hair in the first two seasons but dyes it brown midway through season 2.
* ''Series/KyleXY'' has half of the female cast being applicable. It becomes more than half if you add Andy and her dark golden locks.
* Six of the eight white women from ''Series/{{Heroes}}'', season three, are applicable. Four have bright blond hair and the two others have goldenrod hair. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] InUniverse by Meredith when she reunites with her ex, Nathan, and sees that he's accompanied by Tracy, who's also blonde. This also successfully hides the fact that Nathan and Meredith are Claire's biological parents because she's blonde as well.
* ''Series/DegrassiTheNextGeneration'' counts when you include the guys.
* Emma, Rikki, Miriam, Byron, Bella, Will, and Lewis all from ''Series/H2OJustAddWater''. Hell, it must be that Cleo is loved despite not being a blonde.
* An absurdly extreme majority of named female characters in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' are blonde. Starting with [[StuffedInTheFridge Mary and Jessica]] and including Jo and Ellen and [[TheNthDoctor the first]] Ruby. Notably excluding Lisa. Also an improbable percentage of the random victims, and females in general. There are no redheads besides [[AngelUnaware Anna]].
* Averted in ''Series/WhiteCollar'' as there are no blondes, at least any that get any air time/act as a romantic play. Alex Hunter is the closest, but far from blonde. Even random women that Neil flirts with are always have black hair with the exception of Bridgette from 'The Portrait' and that was for the job.
* Not all at once but most of [[{{Series/Angel}} Angel's]] love interests/ ShipTease women have been blonde. The main ones have been Buffy, Darla and Nina while [[spoiler: Cordelia]] and his relationship didn't really hit it off until after she'd dyed her hair blonde towards the end of season 3. There's also a handful of one-episode characters. It's actually lampshaded in one episode where Angel has been the victim of a FreakyFridayFlip as well as being what clues the cast in about it.
--> '''Cordelia:''' It is ''so'' like Angel to make out with a cheap blonde on his desk.
--> '''Fred:''' It was a brunette.[[note]]The guy in Angel's body made a pass at Lilah Morgan[[/note]]
--> '''Cordelia:''' (''beat'') You're right, that's not like Angel.
* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' and her two aunts are all blonde haired (this trope is abverted in [[ComicBook/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch the comics]] as Sabrina is traditionally a platinum blonde while her aunts have green hair and red hair). Oddly enough her father (their brother) is brunette and the third Aunt Vesta is redhead. It's parodied in one episode where a potion turns Salem's fur blonde.
--> '''Salem:''' I'm blonde! My IQ just dropped 20%!
--> '''Zelda:''' (''points to herself'') Blonde, (''points to Hilda'') Blonde, (''points to Sabrina'') Blonde, (''points to Salem'') Dead!
* The producers of ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' seemed to love making the normally brunette Halliwell sisters blonde at several points during the series. Each of them has been at one point. Piper wore a blonde wig to dress up as [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Glinda]] (who is red-haired in the movie) for Halloween. Prue's future self was blonde in "Morality Bites". Paige wore a blonde disguise in "Baby's First Demon" and had strawberry blonde hair for the majority of season 6. Phoebe meanwhile dyed her hair blonde in season 3 and also got it magically when she was turned into a Banshee, LoveGoddess and Genie, and finally when she dressed up as Lady Godiva. Oddly enough we didn't get a blonde main character until season 8.
* Bridget in ''Series/EightSimpleRules'' (who is blonde herself) invokes this in an episode where she's working as a life guard. She only pays attention to the blonde-haired girls in her swimming class while ignoring a lone brunette girl.
* When ''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff'' was adapted into a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70J1Lo6jIAg godawful teen sitcom in 1990]], the three brunette leads became blondes. (This may or may not have had something to do with changing the setting from Chicago to Southern California.) To carry the reversal further, Jeannie Bueller, who had dark honey-blonde hair in the film, was made a dark brunette.

* Music/SClub7 started out with three blondes in the group, but moved up to five by the time they split up, which had downsized to ''six'' members by then.
* Music/AtomicKitten went from the BlondeBrunetteRedhead tandem to having all three members as blondes for two of their albums. They definitely fit the trope in the video for "It's OK".

* Everyone in ''Pinball/{{Centigrade 37}}'' ([[MinimalistCast That's it, two characters.]]) is a blonde white woman.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* The Wrestling/{{WWE}} "Divas" always have a large number of blondes on the roster. While the women are very ethnically diverse, almost all the white women will be blonde. The brunettes actually outnumber them but most of them are from ethnic minorities.
* ''{{Wrestling/Wrestlicious}}'' has an absurd amount of blondes on the roster - [[DreadfulMusician Kandi Kisses]], [[AnIcePerson Autumn Frost]], [[TheCheerleader Amber]] [[Wrestling/MadisonRayne Lively]], [[TheGenericGuy Lacey]] {{Von Erich|Family}}, [[Wrestling/DaizeeHaze Marley]] [[NewAgeRetroHippie Sebastian]], [[SouthernBelle Charlotte and Savannah]], [[CountryMouse Cousin Cassie]], [[{{Cowgirl}} Tyler Texas]], [[DrillSergeantNasty Boot Camp Bailey]], [[JailBait Juvi Hall]], [[HospitalHottie Malibu McKenzie]], [[CatholicSchoolgirlsRule Charity]], [[LadyOfWar Alexandra The Great]] and [[BikerBabe Kickstart Katie]]. Yeah and that's '''just''' the blondes.
* Starting with the Diva Search competitions, most of the non-blondes were from other races (with the exception of FieryRedhead Wrestling/ChristyHemme, who is actually a natural blonde). It's pretty rare in WWE for there to be a brunette white woman. They've even started favouring DarkSkinnedBlonde girls as well since black Wrestling/AliciaFox and mixed race Wrestling/{{Layla}} temporarily went blonde and Latina Wrestling/EvaMarie was asked to dye her hair blonde (but opted to red haired instead).

* ''Franchise/{{Barbie}}'' has a large amount of blond characters. Some characters are at least related to Barbie.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Big Boss's timeline in the ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' series has a ridiculously large proportion of plot-significant blondes -- EVA, Volgin, Ocelot, The Boss, Elisa, Gene, Roy, Kaz, Paz, Cécile... Stretches plausibility when the blond, blue-eyed Kaz is half-Japanese and identifies as more Japanese than American, and Paz is depicted with blonde hair despite being Costa Rican ''and'' at one point mentioning in her dialogue that she has a darker complexion than "pale-skinned Anglo-Saxons". Since Big Boss has UnresolvedSexualTension with most of these characters, the fandom just likes to joke that [[HasAType he's really into blondes]].
* Blondes seem to comprise a good third or so of ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'''s named characters.
* In ''VideoGame/BarbieSuperModel'', most of the {{NPC}}s are blondes with a few people with light brown hair scattered here and there. And of course, {{Franchise/Barbie}}, a pretty iconic blonde, is the main character.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' is almost entirely populated by people with light hair of some variety, although given the limited graphics [[HairColorDissonance it's not always clear whether it's blonde or brown]]. Even Terra's [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair green]] hair is as light as most of the blondes'. Pretty much the only named character in the game with actually dark hair is Cyan (and no, he does 'not' have cyan coloured hair).
* Six of the eleven characters in the original ''VideoGame/FatalFury'' were blond: [[TheHero Terry]] and [[TheLancer Andy Bogard]], [[DanceBattler Duck King]], [[TheBrute Raiden]], [[TheDragon Billy Kane]], and [[BigBad Geese Howard]].
* If you think about it, a very large portion of the ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' series cast has blonde hair, especially the main characters. It starts with the protagonist [[TheHero Zero]] himself, Ciel, the female lead, Aloutte and with [[spoiler: Elpizo]] and [[spoiler:Omega]] even two of four main villains. Justified by the fact that all but Ciel are [[RobotHair Robots]] [[spoiler:(one of them even being a copy of another one)]] and their appearance isn't limited by biology (scientists of this universe clearly [[EveryoneLovesBlondes love Blondes)]]. The other Reploids and humans you later meet have more common hair colors like red or brown. Or [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue]].

[[folder: Visual Novels]]
* Lampshaded in ''VisualNovel/MissingStars'' when Erik wonders if the school is full of attractive, tall blondes. Four out of the seven potential love interests are blonde (two of them being sisters). The school is predominantly made of Europeans, but still.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Most of the main group of friends in the BDSM webcomic ''Webcomic/{{Sunstone}}'' are redheads, prompting Lisa (also a redhead) to call them the "Red Legion" when they are first introduced.
* Nearly half of the white cast members in ''Webcomic/{{Rhapsodies}}'' are blonde. This is mainly due to most of them being from the same predominantly Scandinavian neighborhood.
* ''Webcomic/TheScumthorpeFiles'' inverts this. Out of more than 30 introduced cast, only two are distinctly blonde (and one of them is actually a brunette who had dyed her hair). According to WordOfGod, this is a deliberate design choice, because, due to the [[VideoGame/TheSims3 the game's graphics]], characters with naturally blonde hair would have very indistinct eyebrows, and this would make their faces looks weird.
* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'' is set in an AfterTheEnd world where the populations of Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland have been cut off from the rest of the world for ninety years at best and all that's left of humanity at worst. Non-blonde people are understandably a relatively rare sight.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Half of the season one members of the Avengers in ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' had blonde hair. The [[Comicbook/AntMan Ant-Man]] in the comics also had blonde hair, but here he had only light brown. When [[Comicbook/MsMarvel Ms. Marvel]] joins in season 2, she adds another yellow head to the mix.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' has Rita, Lori, Leni, [[spoiler:possibly Lucy]], Lana, Lola and Lily Loud. {{Justified}} due to genetics, since Rita's a blond and Lynn Sr. is a brunette, which accounts for all the hair colors in the family [[spoiler:Lucy's hair color is flip-flopped: It's suggested to be dyed in one episode, but later ones has her always having black hair and inheriting it from an ancestor]] except for Lincoln's [[MysticalWhiteHair white hair]], although it's said that inherited it from his maternal grandfather.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* Blondness as an inherited trait is caused by a cluster of mutations that all trace to Northern Europe. There are populations in Europe (particularly parts of Scandinavia) where the proportion of light-haired phenotypes comprises upwards of 80% of the population. [[http://bigthink.com/strange-maps/214-the-blonde-map-of-europe This map]] shows where they are and also how this mutation has spread from its evolutionary epicenter.
