You Gotta Have Blue Hair / Visual Novels

Go To

A list of visual novels in which characters have unusual colored hair.

  • Two cases in Shikkoku no Sharnoth, though one is a subversion. Viola dyes her hair the purplish shade that it is, but Claudia's hair appears to be naturally green. However, she's an extremely minor character and may be dying it as well.
  • Aoba in DRAMAtical Murder. He was born with white hair and has it in a Bad Ending
  • In Lads In Distress Princess Charming has pink hair, Nicholl has blue hair, and Prince Snow has white hair. Can be handwaved by the magic inherent in the universe.
  • Somewhat averted in Katawa Shoujo, where most characters have perfectly ordinary brown, blonde or red hair, and Misha's bright pink is immediately noticed as unusual and later revealed to be dyed. However, the hair color spectrum is still a bit too wide for a Japanese school, and some of the darker-haired characters have natural blue or purple highlights.
    • The school nurse, on the other hand, has light indigo hair.
  • Miou and Miku in A Profile have blue and purple hair respectively. However, since Miku's hair is referred to as black, it's likely that both of their hair colors are not what we see.
  • Most of the characters of Danganronpa have oddly colored hair. Although a few of them are mentioned to have dyed it, and the blonds could just be of mixed heritage, one character has been seen with purple hair in her child photo along with her father whose hair is also purple.
  • The dragon's hair in Dra Koi is bright pink and the protagonist has white hair.
  • Higurashi: When They Cry: Hinamizawa seems to run off this, with each family having a weird hair colour; the Sonozaki women (Mion, Shion, Akane) have mint-green hair, the Furude women (Rika and her mother) have various shades of blue; Rika's mother has a darker shade, closer to black; Hanyuu, Rika's ancient relative, has lilac hair, Rena has orange-brown hair (which could be auburn, or ginger, but either way is unusual considering the game is set in Japan), and all of the Houjou family (including extended family) are blondes (a real-life hair colour, but like Rena's, it's still unusual given the setting).
    • Rina has bubblegum pink hair, Irie has Rena's colour, Takano has Satoko's, and Chie-sensei has a shade that's even bluer than Rika's.
  • In Hatoful Boyfriend the majority of characters are birds, but they have noncanon moe anthromorphizations who sometimes have unusual hair colors. In Ryouta's and Anghel's cases, blue and teal respectively, it's probably a more high-contrast version of their actual plumage, which is sort of blue-gray. Nageki's green hair may be a reference to the blue-green ring around his eyes. But two white doves are shown as humans with pale blue hair.

  • In the Corpse Party Fan Sequels D2: Depths of Despair and Fatal Operation, Seiko has dyed her normally brown hair green. She tells the others she did this after losing a bet, but doesn't seem to mind.
  • Even though the Ace Attorney series takes place in a fairly realistic universe, no one seems to feel the need to comment on the hair colors of Franziska, April, Vera, Redd, or Lisa Basil (metallic blue, pink, dark blue, purple, and electric blue, respectively). While Redd and April could've dyed theirs, and Lisa's could just be part of her gimmick, Franziska's and Vera's hair really has no explanation. And that's not even getting into some hair styles that seem to completely defy the laws of physics.
  • Fate/stay night especially loves characters with purple and blue hair. The human characters include Shinji (blue) and his sister Sakura (purple), and their father also sported blue hair. Illya also has Mystical White Hair (due to being a homunculus). Four of the seven servants also have hairstyles in varying hues of blue (Lancer, Assassin) and purple (Caster, Rider). And yet, only Saber's blonde hair ever gets commented on by other characters, usually when they're discussing how much she sticks out as an obvious foreigner in town. Sakura's case is justified as it's a side-effect of Zouken's torture and she otherwise would have black hair like Rin, and some of the servants are justified due to them being gods/demigods. Assassin and Issei seem to fall under Purple Is the New Black.

  • In Invisible Apartment, Kacey changes her hair colour to help disguise herself, but doesn't stick to natural shades. She starts the first game with purple hair, but has gone green by the end of it. (The prequel and sequel show her with black and blonde hair, though.)
  • The Letter takes place in our universe with the characters having fairly realistic design, but several of them still have unnatural hair colors - Rebecca's hair is bubblegum pink, Rose's is green and Kylie's is blue.
  • In Strawberry Vinegar, Rie and her father have bright pink hair, while her mother's is bright orange.
  • In Sunrider, some of the characters have relatively normal hair colours but the rest are more exotic. Kayto Shields and his sister Maray both have naturally white hair, as does Sola. Chigara has periwinkle blue hair, as does her Prototype “sister” Veniczar Arcadius. Kryska has indigo blue hair. Veniczar Fontana has dark purple hair. And Claude has bubble gum pink hair. Nobody comments on any of these hair colours.
  • Ciel from Tsukihime has dark blue hair.
  • Grisaia no Kajitsu: Of the six inhabitant of Mihama Academy three character has this. Amane's hair is magenta, Sachi's is pink and Yumiko has dark purple.
  • CLANNAD plays this weirdly: the cast runs the gamut of rainbow hair colors...except for Sunohara, whose blonde hair is dyed and is stated to be "an impossible color" (his actual hair color is gray-blue). So...why exactly is that one shade of color impossible when none of the others are? It comes down to stylization. The other colors (except the Fujibayashi's lavender hair) are similar to black and brown, which are the main colors of Japanese hair. So it can be seen as an equivalent to that. Sunohara is full Japanese and can't have blond hair naturally. Not that it sounds any less weird.
  • Your Turn To Die features a veritable rainbow of colors. Qtaro has bright, flaming red hair, while Nao's is a slightly softer shade that's more cardinal. Sara has orange hair that appears more of a soft brunette in some art; Kanna has light green; Sou has teal... but the true standout here is the convict, who pairs bright blue bangs with a magenta and lime green-striped buzzcut.
