[[caption-width-right:350:Wow, they make you completely forget about the [[ButYourWingsAreBeautiful giant hawk wings]], don't they?]]

->''"Your beauty is beyond compare\\
With flamin' locks of auburn hair\\
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green"''\\
-- '''DollyParton''', "Jolene"

Green-eyed redheads are among the rarest color combinations found in humanity (with the exception of some [[VioletEyes abnormalities]]), and thus is used to distinguish an important, notable character visually. It's more often found with women than with men, and is almost always either found as a trait of TheHero or The Hero's LoveInterest. To qualify for this trope, it's important that:

* The character is a major character.
* The character is not in works where YouGottaHaveBlueHair.
* The character isn't from a live-action work, unless they were artificially given these colors for the purpose of the work, or were chosen directly for it.
* The character has red hair and green eyes, and not pink hair or hazel/blue-green eyes, or even green hair and red eyes.

This image might have been [[TropeCodifier influenced a lot]] by MaureenOHara and her various roles, which also influenced this to be the PhenotypeStereotype for an [[{{Oireland}} Irish]] person. It may also have something to do with the fact that red and green are complementary colours - which also may help to explain why so many red-headed characters are [[RedheadInGreen depicted wearing green]], even if they aren't Irish.
