- Erin Esurance from Esurance commercials, although one commercial revealed that her pink hair was a wig and the Animated Actor playing her in-universe naturally has dark hair.
- There's a holiday-season smartphone commercial in which dozens of little people in elf costumes and bright pink wigs sing about and package the ad's product.
Anime & Manga
- Pictured above: Akari Mizunashi from ARIA.
- Lacus Clyne from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED. For partial bonus points, Lacus was engaged to the blue-haired Athrun Zala, though it didn't last.
- As well as her Body Double, Meer Campbell, in Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny. She was a brunette (the colour they used actually seems to be some sort of dark grey, but I assume it's meant to represent brown) before she was altered to look like Lacus. Lacus's hair is apparently naturally pink, though, but then, she's a designer baby like every other Coordinator, so who knows how simple something like that would be.
- Lunamaria Hawke Gundam SEED Destiny has magenta hair.
- Feldt Grace from Gundam 00. Word of God claims she dyes it.
- Sarah Zabiarov of Zeta Gundam... Noticing a theme?
- Lu Anon from Gundam AGE.
- Haman Karn of Zeta and Double Zeta has pink hair, but is only cheerful and optimistic as a young girl in the Char's Deleted Affair manga set after the One Year War.
- Rose from Fullmetal Alchemist, though it's actually just her bangs. The rest of her hair is dark brown.
- Kotoko-01 from Divergence Eve.
- To Love-Ru has all 3 (naturally they are sisters). Lala is cheerful and optimistic, Nana is the Fiery Red Head and Momo is the sweet and romantic one (although her idea of romantic is rather broad).
- Cheza from Wolf's Rain is the sweet, low-key romantic subtype. For bonus points, the guy who created her has blue hair, not to mention the more tomboyish Action Girl Blue.
- Sakura Haruno from Naruto, and she has hair-related Theme Naming. It's apparently natural, unless she's going through the trouble of dying her eyebrows. She's also in love with Sasuke, although her feelings are unreciprocated.
- The titular character of Revolutionary Girl Utena - at least, in the anime version. The manga version was originally a blonde. Later colored art for the manga would follow suit.
- We can probably thank Executive Meddling for this example. Chiho Saito originally had all the characters with "normal" hair colors, with Utena being more of an orangish blonde with a pink outfit, which was pointed out in the first chapter of the manga. However, when the series was developed for television, the director decided against the original pink outfit. As a compromise, Utena's outfit was changed to black, with her hair color changed to pink.
- Souji Mikage, too, but he's not exactly a hero...
- Ichigo Momomiya from Tokyo Mew Mew has this in the manga. In the anime, only Mew Ichigo has pink hair, whereas her civilian form has red hair.
- And in the manga, her love interest has blue hair.
- Nozomi Yumehara/Cure Dream from Yes! Pretty Cure 5 in both forms.
- Queen Flora from Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo also sports the "pink hair and yellow eyes" combination.
- Even if she's not a Cure, Miyuki Chinen from Fresh Pretty Cure! is definitely an example of this, matched with gold eyes. Cure Passion from the same continuity also has pink hair, which led some people to believe that she was Miyuki until the truth about her identity was revealed. Cure Passion is a former villain, and she's still more introverted than her teammates.
- Similarly, Tsubomi Hanasaki from Heartcatch Pretty Cure has this, but like Ichigo above, it's only when she transforms into Cure Blossom.
- Cure Melody from Suite Pretty Cure ♪.
- Miyuki Hoshizora/Cure Happy from Smile Pretty Cure. She got this from her Absurdly Youthful Mother Ikuyo.
- Mana Aida from Doki Doki Precure — though, oddly, not her Cure Heart alter ego.
- Chibiusa in Sailor Moon, which is actually pointed out by some of her new classmates in one of the manga side stories (and the anime special based on it).
- Similarly, in several manga illustrations, her mother Usagi was shown with light pink hair. However, this tends to stay confined to artbooks, since Usagi has blonde or silver hair in the manga proper.
- Ikuko Tsukino's hair was colored magenta in one of Naoko Takeuchi's illustrations; however, her other colored appearances show her with blue-violet hair (which the anime used).
- Also, in the beginning of the manga, Sailor Jupiter has rose-colored hair to match her rose earrings.
- Ann/Ann/An/En in 'Sailor Moon R' didn't really fit it all that well, but she DOES have a blue-haired love interest and the 'Bitch in Sheep's Clothing' also somewhat applies.
- Amu Hinamori from Shugo Chara!. However, unlike other examples of this trope, her initial personality was somewhat introverted. One of her Charas, Ran, also has this.
- Bonus points for her, because Ikuto, one of Amu's love intrests, has blue hair. triple pointer for him being her (manga canon) choice.
- Magical Princess Minky Momo is a Cute Witch with pink hair.
- Princess Silver from Crayon Kingdom Of Dreams
- The titular character of A Little Snow Fairy Sugar.
- Mao from Mao-chan.
- Himeno Awayuki in Prétear, the cheerful and optimistic heroine. Also a type B Tsundere to Hayate, the aloof blue haired knight.
- Momoko from Wedding Peach, one of the most upbeat characters and also the heroine.
- Doremi and Pop Harukaze from Ojamajo Doremi.
- The Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha series plays this absolutely straight with Caro Ru Lushe, yet inverts it to hell and back with Signum, who is probably the most stoic character in the entire franchise so far.
- Madoka Kaname from Puella Magi Madoka Magica, showcasing her innocent nature.
- Subaru from Houkago No Pleiades.
- Hinagiku Katsura from Hayate the Combat Butler.
- Amusingly enough, she fits all three of the types, and she has a blue-haired (clueless) love interest.
- Louise from The Familiar of Zero. Then again, her hair color is described as "strawberry blonde" in the novels, and this is a real hair color. It's just that the manga and anime producers apparently don't know what "strawberry blonde" looks like.
- Miyuki Takara and her mother in Lucky Star.
- Also Akira Kogami, who can act cheery until something angers her, at which point, it doesn't take a whole lot for the fiery aspect of her personality to surface.
- Every Nurse Joy ever in Pokémon.
- The most popular interpretation of Mimi Tachikawa in Digimon Adventure 02 dyed her hair pink with small yellow stars. It was originally brown (or red, depending on who you ask).
- Nagisa in Rave Master.
- Kim Diehl in Soul Eater. There's also Crona, whose hair was pink in the manga but was changed to lavender in the anime, but s/he's more of a Shrinking Violet or Shy Blue-haired Person of Indeterminate Gender.
- Sora Naegino in Kaleido Star has magenta hair, which stands out because even the other native Japanese who visit her have realistic hair colors.
- Moka Akashiya's outer self in Rosario + Vampire.
- Trish Una, the token chick from Part 5 of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
- Shiho and Fumi from Mai-HiME and Mai-Otome, and Mayo from Mai-HiME Destiny.
- Princess Euphemia li Britannia and Anya Alstreim from Code Geass. Euphy's personality fits with what's expected for this trope, being a Wide-Eyed Idealist in a series known for its Black and Gray Morality. Conversely, Anya is an Emotionless Girl...although she wasn't always like that.
- Mao/Mariah from Beyblade.
- Miwako from Paradise Kiss, fittingly enough.
- Haramura Nodoka from Saki.
- Ringo Yukimori from Hime Chen Otogi Chikku Idol Lilpri. Oddly enough, she is the reincarnation of Snow White, and the most well-known versions of Snow White all have black hair.
- The titular Princess Comet has pink hair.
- Hikaru from Hyper Speed GranDoll.
- Wilhelmina Carmel from Shakugan no Shana.
- Noriko Nakajima from Hell Teacher Nube.
- Miharu Sena Kanaka from Girls Bravo.
- A more fiery Gender Flip occurs with Natsu Dragonil from Fairy Tail. Because real men have pink hair.
- Sherry, bonus points for her love interest, who has light-blue Hair. However, she's engaged to Ren after the time skip, cancelling out Lyon as a love interest.
- There's also the docile and kind Stellar Spirits Virgo and Aries, and, oddly enough, the crabby old healer, Porlyusica.
- Don't forget Meredy and Chelia! Both are cute little girls though Meredy has aged after the time skip..
- The titular character of Steel Angel Kurumi.
- One of the rare villainous versions — Chuutatsu Shibai from Ikki Tousen Dragon Destiny.
- Washu Hakubi from Tenchi Muyo!, though it varies from light pink to dark pink to red, depending on the official artwork.
- A male example would be Seiryo Tennan from Tenchi OAV 2 and Tenchi Muyo GXP.
- Kanon Nakagawa from The World God Only Knows.
- Yui from Angel Beats!. And for bonus points, Hinata has blue hair.
- Kiko from Darker Than Black certainly fits the Genki Girl stereotype. However, considering that most of the cast have realistic hair colors and she's a Cosplay Otaku Girl, it's quite possible she dyed it.
- Akane Miura, an Original Character made for K-On!; her hair was one of the clear indications that she was fanmade, as the show itself pretty much averts You Gotta Have Blue Hair. She's still quite popular, though.
- Kujira Etorofu from Penguin Musume, who was raised under the impression that she is a boy. Because pink-haired boys are so commonplace.
- Pink-haired boy: Shuichi from Gravitation.
- Another male example: Shun from Here Is Greenwood.
- Mizuki Himeji from Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu. Pretty, nice and a mishmash of wacko.
- YuYu Hakusho: Genkai, at least, in her younger days, is an example of the "fiery" sort. It grayed over time, though. However, in the manga, her hair was strawberry-blonde.
- Hunter × Hunter: Machi is a Kunoichi and a member of the murderous thief-band, Genei Ryodan. She's stoic, cold, ruthless, snarky, delivers Death Glares, and she's deadly as any other member. She also happens to be the Combat Medic. However, Machi has only pink hair in the manga and in the 2011 anime version, while in the 1999 version she has purple hair.
- Bleach: Pink-haired, hyperactive, Yachiru is the cheerful and optimistic version, always smiling, especially when Kenpachi is enjoying his fights.
- Milfeulle Sakuraba from Galaxy Angel. And Takuto, as Milfeulle is the canon heroine, has black or blue hair, depending on which picture/scene you're looking at and on who's making the judgement.
- Anemone from Eureka Seven.
- Guu brilliantly subverts this. Her moe side plays this straight, but her "evil" side is very unlike this trope.
- Beauty, the heroine and Morality Pet to the title character in Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo.
- And later on, after The Reveal that his fecal matter-shaped "head" is actually a mask, it's shown that Softon's hair is a darker shade of pink. He's also Beauty's older brother.
- Yuna Miyama from Maburaho.
- Strong and passionate - that definitely describes Haruko Haruhara from FLCL.
- From Mahou Sensei Negima!, Makie Sasaki and the Narutaki twins have all been depicted with either pink or red hair. The first anime switches them all from pink to red hair about halfway through. They also all fit the "cheery girl" stereotype.
- Kuniko Hojo from Shangri-La
- Rebecca Miyamoto from Pani Poni Dash! is a quasi-example; her hair is somehow both blonde and pink.
- Caldina and Nova from Magic Knight Rayearth. Hikaru's hair in the manga illustrations are more of a pinkish color as well (in the anime, it's red).
- Darry from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
- Coby from One Piece. However, he is a rare male Shrinking Violet, and in direct contrast to the usual Pink-Haired teenager, he often has a nervous outlook on life - even after taking a small level in Badass.
- Viola from Kiddy Grade.
- Ascoeur from Kiddy GiRL-AND.
- Another of the rare rose-haired guys is Sanetoshi Watase from Mawaru-Penguindrum, apparently an expy of the aforementioned Souji Mikage.
- Meanwhile, Momoka Oginome and Hibari Isada are the local rose haired girls.
- Nono of Diebuster has long pink hair and is optimistic, cheerful, strong, and passionate.
- Cosette, Ropponmatsu II (partially), and Excel's good conscience in Excel♥Saga.
- The titular character of Puni Puni Poemi.
- Toa from Dragonaut: The Resonance with Curtains Match the Window set of pink eyes as well. Akira has hot pink hair.
- Marika from Bodacious Space Pirates has pink hair with the cheery and optimistic personality.
- The Maigical Woman Ureshiko of Oku-sama wa Mahou Shoujo has pink hair.
- Inori from Guilty Crown has pale pink hair. While she's not at all a Genki Girl, she does share the "pure" personality shown by many other characters on this page; she's one of the most loyal and caring characters in Guilty Crown and becomes something of a Messianic Archetype in the final episode. She also becomes more passionate near the end of the show.
- One of the two protagonists of Go! Go! Ichigo is a trans girl named Ichigo◊ who has pink hair. She's quite bubbly and perky, though not a Genki Girl.
- Komoe Tsukuyomi from A Certain Magical Index.
- Amanda Werner from Blassreiter.
- The unnamed protagonist of Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita.
- Myuu from Hagure Yuusha no Estetica.
- Nagisa Shiratori from Chou Kuse ni Narisou ("I'll make a Habit of it.") Her Love Interest is even a blue-haired Boy.
- Yuno Gasai, from Mirai Nikki, has some pretty pink hair, but sghe's definitely not as sweet as some of the other examples...
- Lucy/Nyuu from Elfen Lied, but it has a more reddish tint in the anime whereas the manga has it as bright pink. Either way, the "Nyuu" side of her personality is cheerful (and dumb as a post), while Lucy is very much "strong and passionate" (in a very psychotic way, however). Nana fits as well (though her hair was purple in the manga).
- Every diclonius in the anime version.
- Megan Gwynn (Pixie) from New X-Men fit the definition for a good while, until Magik (or Magik's demonic clone) got to her. Depending on the artist, her hair's now either mostly black with pink streaks or mostly pink with black streaks, but either way, she was heavily affected by having bits of her soul ripped out and is suffering some serious overall disillusionment with the X-Adults.
- SpyGirl from Spy Boy. Of course, she is intended to be a spoof of all things anime.
- Devi from I Feel Sick definitely fits 'passionate and strong' and wishes she fit 'romantic'.
- Darla Deering, a.k.a. Miss Thing in Marvel NOW's FF series.
- Chloe Auriville from Pretty Cure Perfume Preppy, when transformed into Cure Rosa. Ayameko's friend, Ran Nakayama, also counts.
- Shinju Miwa (Cure Pearl) from Shining Pretty Cure, in both forms.
- Sakura Tsuitei from Pretty Cure Full Color.
- Cure Dawn in Futari Wa Pretty Cure Blue Moon has pink hair as well, since she's basically a classic shoujo heroine (or a grown-up variant) set up to contrast the fairly unusual leads, Cure Night and Cure Sunday. Like a lot of the modern examples (Ichigo, Tsubomi, and, yes, Chloe, too), her hair is red as a civilian.
- In the Death Note fic Point Of Succession Matt is a Rose-Haired Boy-right before Mello was abducted by a Serial Killer he had caused Matt to have a hair dye "accident" dying his hair an embarassing shade of bright pink. Matt has resolved he's not going to dye it back until they've got Mello back.
- Lava Girl from Shark Boy and Lava Girl has neon-pink hair that glows when she activates her powers.
- Frenchy in the film version of Grease accidentally dyes her hair pink, leading the "Beauty School Dropout" fantasy sequence.
- Stan Dominus from Duumvirate is a male example, and he even wears pink clothing to match. Aww, isn't he cute?
- In the fantasy novel Drink Down the Moon by Charles De Lint, one of the faerie women living among humans, who is posing as a young punk musician, has natural pink hair. Of course, anyone who sees her (anyone who sees her and due to her glamour is led to think she is human, that is) assumes it's dyed.
- Nymphadora Tonks from the Harry Potter series can choose whatever hair color she wants as part of her magical ability. Usually, it's bubblegum pink.
- Mei Sheong of Parrish Plessis has pink hair. It's not natural, but she strongly prefers the color and spends a considerable portion of her meager salary keeping it dyed.
- Mae Crawford from The Demon's Lexicon, although it's dyed. It fits her optimistic personality.
- Trapped on Draconica: Daniar is the strong and passionate type.
- Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games, who can be optimistic and effervescent to an almost manic degree. Her wig is pink in the first book (and in her first scenes in the movie), so it's the one she's most associated with, along with the color pink in general.
Live Action TV
- Independent circuit female wrestler LuFisto models her outfits on anime characters, so she sometimes dyed her hair pink.
- As a member of The Hart Dynasty, Natalya Neidheart's blond hair occasionally has pink tips.

- Nana from Mega Man X: Command Mission. Granted, she's a reploid.
- Meiru/Mayl from Mega Man Battle Network has magenta hair, as does Sonia in Mega Man Star Force.
- Black Rose from .hack//, Pi from .hack//G.U., and Shino (before she changed her character's colors).
- Alisa Bosconovitch from Tekken 6, who is a robot.
- Male example: while Link's hair has historically fluctuated between red, brown, and blond in his various appearances, sprites for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past showed him as having pink hair. It justifies why Link becomes a pink-furred rabbit in the Dark World.
- Maki (Mary) in Persona was given pink/primary-color-red hair in the US version because they thought it would make it seem less Japanese.
- Yet another male example: Marluxia from the Kingdom Hearts series.
- Although he was supposed to be a woman at first; it was changed when the developers realized that, with two women, the plot would be accidentally sexist.
- Lenna in Final Fantasy V...at least, according to the sprites. Artworks depict her as a blonde.
- Mitadake High, being a game which gloriously bases itself on all manners of anime stereotypes, lampshades this by having the aliases of most of the characters being their hair colour; one of them is "The Long Pink Haired Girl".
- In a rare western example. Baldur's Gate 2 gave Imoen a pink hairdo, in contrast to her more normal appearance in the first game. Despite being the only person with such colouration, it's never commented on, and whether it's meant to be a dye job or just an early indication of the whole Bhaalspawn thing is never resolved.
- It's a dye job, her portrait still has brown eyebrows. Also, there are wild magic effects that will turn you random colors, and one that turns the target random colors.
- Althea from Luminous Arc 2 had light pink hair before her class change.
- In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, if you go far enough in the Xtransceiver Sidequest Sidestory as a male player, you discover that the Xtransceiver's owner, Yancy has pink hair.

- Aoi Kanda and Rin Shirosaki of Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 2.
- Milfeulle Sakuraba from Galaxy Angel. And Takuto Meyers has blue hair, so, bonus points.
- The Dark World version of Elle in Terranigma. However, her supposedly identical counterpart in the Light World is a redhead.
- Amy Rose from the Sonic the Hedgehog series, who, of course, lusts after a blue-furred hedgehog.
- Shiki Misaki from The World Ends with You. Well, in Eri's form, at least.
- Several characters from the Harvest Moon series, including Nina, Lillia, Popuri, and Lyla from the series proper, and Lynette, Melody, and (arguably) Lara from Rune Factory.
- Vivian from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.
- Claves from Eternal Sonata.
- Alicia from Radiata Stories.
- The Mana Khemia series has several examples. In the first game, there is Jessica Philomele, a student who carries a purse with all kinds of deadly chemical explosives. The sequel brings us Etward Deisler from Mana Khemia 2, an incredibly powerful young girl, and quite stacked to match.
- Serra from Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade and Ethlin from Geneaology of the Holy War are Genki Girl examples, while Linoan from Thracia 776 is the docile Proper Lady variety.
- Selena Recital from Super Robot Wars, though it's more of a magenta color.
- Rizelea from Trinity Universe.
- Hanako from Disgaea 2.
- Argilla from Digital Devil Saga. Bonus points for being The Chick.
- Leslie from Arc Rise Fantasia.

- The titular character of Izuna: Legend of the Unemployed Ninja.
- Liebea from Rosenkreuzstilette. Bonus points for being a Proper Lady who's prone to crying.
- Millie Chliette from Star Ocean. And Roddick has blue hair.
- Luna from Soul Series, one of opponents you can face in Chronicles of Sword. Personality wise, she is more of a Fiery Redhead.
- Ulala from Space Channel 5.
- Princess Shokora from Wario Land 4.
- Claris Sinclair from NiGHTS Into Dreams, who also has a blue-haired male counterpart.
- Jenna from Golden Sun is one with Fiery Redhead tendencies.
- Lucy in Dynamite Dux.
- Kohaku and Hisui from Tsukihime. Kohaku is cheery, while Hisui is docile.
- Misha from Katawa Shoujo is of the cheery, energetic type. Except she actually dyes her hair and she's not actually as cheery as you'd think.
- April May from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.
- Rimi Sakihata from Chaos;Head.
- Rosetta from Winter Shard.
- Michiru from AIR has magenta hair.

- Super Dangan Ronpa 2 has Kazuichi Souda, the SHSL Mechanic with neon pink and wildly styled hair. He's deliberately trying to invoke this by dying it from its original black and growing it out.
- Elodie from Long Live the Queen, who starts out as a sweet, innocent, and somewhat naive fourteen-year old princess who just inherited the throne on her mother's death. Depending on how you play (and whether she survives), she can continue to play out the stereotype, or turn into one hell of a subversion.
- Antimony Carver from Gunnerkrigg Court. But she's apparently a redhead, judging from other characters' comments, and it may only look pink for stylistic reasons. This applies to her late mother, Surma, as well.
- Charm from Pink Black has long, pink hair. This contrasts a lot with Zero's (who may be her boyfriend) and her best friend Sifris' hair colours.
- Cecania Greensworthington in Sore Thumbs. It was eventually revealed that she dyes it.
Whilhelm Tryggvassen of Girl Genius also has pink hair. Although, given her brother's reaction when seeing her, it might be a dye job (or unnatural in some other way; in this world, there're plenty of options).
- He might have been talking about her haircut; the color extends to her eyebrows, so it's most likely natural. Besides, Othar is white haired, so odd hair colors may not be anything unusual for that family in the first place.
- Light-colored hair tends to take dye well (unlike dark hair, which has to be bleached first and then dyed). It's possible they all have white or blonde hair, and Sanaa just added the pink.
- In Las Lindas, there's Taffy, who fits this trope too well. Even if her hair is dyed.
- Steffi of Kiwi Blitz.
- Shiki Yagami of Mitadake Saga

- Crystal from Sailor Sun.
- Sheena from Kid Radd. And Radd himself has blue-black hair.
- Momo from Questionable Content. Justified in that she's an anime-style robot.
- Linneus from Teahouse is a rare male example, and the creators have stated multiple times that they just wanted to have a comic with a pink haired boy. He even smells like roses! He's often mistaken for a transsexual by readers due to his hair color and his effeminate style of dress.
- In Our Little Adventure,
- Honey Hart from Band Vs Band
- SCP-040 has pink hair, but its brittle and falls out often.
- Aelita from Code Lyoko has natural pink hair both in her Lyoko avatar and in the real world. She inherited it from her mother, who is shown in flashbacks to sport the same hair color. It stands out as the rest of the cast has a normal range of hair colors for French kids (assuming Odd's purple spot is permanently dyed).
- In the novel adaptation, Aelita has pink hair on Lyoko, but she and her mother have red hair in the real world.
- This is kept in the Live-Action Adaptation - Aelita's actress's hair will be sprayed pink for filming.
- Willow from A Kind of Magic.
- Wanda in The Fairly OddParents. Justified because she's a fairy and weird hair colors are common in Fairy World.
- Amethyst from Trollz.
- Jem (identity of Jerrica) from same name.
- Rejected Nickelodeon pilot The Modifyers has Agent Xero, who had pink hair as her normal look.
- Jinmay from Super Robot Monkey Team Hyper Force Go.

- As for the ponies with Multicolored Hair, there's Locket, Fizzy, Baby Fifi, Gingerbread, Galaxy, and Sweet Stuff.
- Patch, Clover and Sweetheart from My Little Pony Tales; Patch and Clover are Genki Girl examples while Sweetheart is the docile version.
- Fluttershy from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is the docile version, while Pinkie Pie is the "cheery and optimistic" version. In both cases however, you don't want to mess with their friends. Celestia is also depicted with rose hair 1000 years ago, though speculation about what her personality was like back then is just that.
- Miss Naughty from The Mr. Men Show.
- Dolce from Angel's Friends is of the cheery and optimistic type.
- Starfire from Teen Titans Go!! is usually very optimistic and cheerful.
