I'm drafting Element Hair for "Elements as hair material"...

People have been saying "Elemental Hair is too similar. It's confusing! Rename to Elemental Hair Colors as a Elemental Eye Colors snowclone?"

I agree... So might as well try a quick TRS to see what happens.

BTW, there's 328 wicks to move if it goes through, so not many, there's no ambiguity, moves would be easy.

I might also want an Elemental Hair Shapes or Meaningful Hair Shape draft later... As shape is neither material nor color...

Working from the bottom. Skipped Anime, Comic Book, Fanfic, Literature, Sandbox.

There's some confusion, but most entries seem to get that it's hair color.

    Characters: 235. Incomplete. (Done A, L, N, O, U, V & Z) 



  • Anpanman: His hair resembles fire.
  • Lightning Dust:
    Lightning Dust's hair is electric yellow due to the electricity coursing through it and heating every strand to yellow-hot (similar to the filament in a light bulb-and that's around 2426 degrees Celsius, or 4400 degrees Fahrenheit), effectively turning it into Elemental Hair.
  • Nyaruko: Crawling with Love!: ZCE, but Implied by other tropes and familial relations.
  • Villainous:
    Her hair is made of shadow and is translucent enough to see her scalp under it.
