What if the page image was changed to this? <a href="media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/736x/5a/6a/79/5a6a79d6bd24c759e428004fca3cbd38.jpg"></a>

That would be a lateral change; the current image is much less noisy.

Far too blurry to work.

That is an excellent example. Go ahead and add it, if you want. They sort of fit the steriotypes too. Hermione is a nerd. Luna is a bit of a ditz or Cloud Cookoo Lander. Ginny is not too fiery per se. However there are some romantic passion when Harry get's involved. Ginny starts out with and crush, and grows to a full blown romance.

They even get married and have three kids after the series.

What about Luna Lovegood, Hermione Granger, and Ginny Weasley? They are the 3 biggest characters of the main generation of the Harry Potter books/movies, and they fit the trope perfectly.

I don't know about the first Zelda game. According to the sprite, Zelda was a brunette in a RED dress :-/

Does anyone remember what the trope namer was? Because if it originated from the Matrix quote, then the entire thing would have started on a misinterpretation as the Matrix quote was only mentioned because he was trying to put emphasis on his innate ability to read the "code".

There was no specific trope namer. It's common enough that it doesn't have a truly iconic example, and BBR is pretty straight-forward as a title. The Matrix quote only helped decide launching as BBR rather than B Band R. And yes, he's talking about the code, but it also lets us know what's on his mind.

Okay, I have a question; there's a weird case of this trope that occurs within the same character (and I swear, it makes sense if you understand the plot). The character in question is a Red-Headed Heroine, who dies and comes back wrong as an Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette. Her friends aim to get her soul back, which is depicted as having caramel blonde hair. Would this count? Or would it be a specific play on this trope, like an inversion (since this is normally for an ensemble, and this is three forms of the same person)?

Weirdly enough, this has become a theme in a lot of my stories, including my fanfics. Hmm...

How come this is an Always Female trope? Can't this trope fit male teams too?

I think this is a case where it's Traditionally Female or Stereotypically Female rather than Always Female. The current state of the article (female-focused description, but plenty of male examples) indicates this rather elegantly; it would only take an added sentence or two to make it explicit.

The article probably doesn't belong in the Always Female index, though. Anybody mind if it's removed?

Maybe we could add a redirect too: Blond Brunet Redhead for males.

I agree with that. I was wondering if there could possibly be examples of unisex/co-ed instances. Maybe?

I edited the Superman example because Lana Lang is a redhead (in the comics, though there's been some variety in other media), and Lori Lemaris is a brunette.

Wasn't Posh A Brunette too?
