Yeah, I know that these black-haired examples are forced, but this is how the blue haired trope is used now. It's supposed to be about one type of personality, but the examples include Ayanami Rei, Furude Rika pre-reveal
, Miki Sayaka, and Marge Simpson, and the description seems to allow all of these, as it includes everything from friendliness to unfriendliness, and from nervousnes to stoicism.
The title and parts of the description make it look like it works like Fiery Redhead
or Dumb Blonde
: those all have one clear element, being fiery, or dumb.
Yet in practice, it is used for collecting ALL blue-haired girls, like Rose-Haired Girl
, but that one is explicitly written about all rose haired girls, and only the description lists what might be
the common meanings behind it:
"pink-haired girls are often either cheery and optimistic, strong and passionate, or docile and romantic."
The current position of Shy Blue Haired
girl is similar to as if Rose-Haired Girl
would be called Cheery Rose Haired Girl
, while the above description would stay, and continue to include all the above six variations and everything else.
If this one wants to keep all these possible meanings, such as stoicism, friendliness, and nervousness, it needs to be renamed as Blue Haired Girl
, and admit that it's about all
blue haired girls, and only tries to speculate about the most common meanings behind it.
