- Ambiguous Ethnicity: Where a character's race is intentionally non-white, non-Western, but kept vague, either because the writer does not want to get the culture wrong, because the writer wants to avoid Real Life issues, or because it serves the narrative better to keep it ambiguous.
- Ambiguously Brown: When a character (probably drawn) is given dark skin simply as a visual identifier. They may or may not be part of a different culture, but the point is that darker skin simply makes the character distinct. This is a visual trope.
