Oh, so there are two stereotypes: one for Evil Blond Aryan
(strictly blond, usually with very short hair) and one for Pale Hair Dark Heart
(long straight white/silver/blond hair).
Inbound check for White-Haired Pretty Boy
(because I don't remember seeing one yet): there are only 121 of them
(and almost half are duplicates). Of the first 38, I see:
- 9 (+ 4 probable) about the appearance (and several are just looking for examples of the appearance, so they wouldn't be hurt by the redirect)
- 5 (+ 2 probable) about the personality stereotype
- 6 without enough context to tell
- 1 that's just referring to the page picture ("Who is this anime guy?")
- 8 copies of TVTropes pages
- one duplicate
- two that don't actually contain the link
So only about 13/38*121=41 links would be confused by the redirect - and many of those are forum posts, which have little long-term traffic anyway.
On the other hand, 40% of the page (the Subversions section) is about white-haired pretty boys who aren't White Hair, Black Heart
. The pure appearance trope is awfully popular.
