My Anime Hair Colour/Length/Personality Theory (TM)

I turned this bizarre thought over in my head one day about whether a characters hair colour can be used to determine there personality prior to viewing a show and knowing nothing about it. I came up with a sort of matrix for applying this theory to anime:


Short Brown Female: Often self confident, can be violent sometimes, and tends to be somewhat athletic. examples: Sakura Kinomoto, Suzumiya Haruhi, Kirie Kojima


Short Brown Male: Often the opposite of the female counterpart, practical to a fault and usually is very awkard initially social situations with other characters. Tends to be the template for main harem characters. examples: Bland Kyon, Amuro Ray, Many Harem Leads


Short Blue Female: Extremely quite, withdrawn and shy. Often booksmart and compassionate, willing to lend a helping hand to those in need, but often dains to speak. examples: Ami Mizuno, Tabitha, Rei Ayanami


Short Blue Male: This one is actually all over the place, usually the character is a bit unstable and indecisive, flip-flopping through a number of personalities and may have a temper and/or issues with their parents. examples: Kamille Bidan, Athrun Zala, K9999


Long Blue Hair Female: Often has a secret hidden power of some kind that they wish they didn’t have or don’t know about. examples: Kaname Chidori, Dizzy, Rika Furude


Long Blond Hair Period: Narcisstic and Self-absorbed, or just a general bishounen/bishoujo for the most part. The typical bishounen or school idol, also used to show a character is foreign in a lot of shows, if that rule fails they often fill the role of the ditzy character. examples: Usagi Tsukino (Rule 2), Guiche, Lisa Fukuyama, Zechs Merquise, Erika Kiriya


Long Pink Hair Female Only (I hope): Your pink princess who usually gets everybody to follow along with her wishes either by charm or force. examples: Chibi-Usa (When hair is let down), Lacus Clyne, Euphemia La Britannia, Louise Françoise le Blanc de la Vallière


Red Hair Female: The firey my way or the highway hot-blooded girl with an often outrageously explosive temper, always seems to be fighting someone or something. examples: Shana, Aoi (Dancouga Nova), Asuna Kagurazuka, Asuka Soryu Langely, Etna


Green Hair Female: Often hyperactive/expressive character who seems to never ever shut-up when the time is necessary and is usually fairly good at something as a personal talent, and good friends with one of the main characters.  Often more than they appear to be. examples: Asa_Shigure, Tsuruya, Mion Sonozaki, Shizuru, C.C (Counter-example although she never does shut up she isn’t very hyperactive)


Short Purple Female: The Ruri.  Always there to make wise cracks about the characters actions.


Long Silver Male: Evil Bishounen Villain and a favourite of Tetsuya Nomura (As Long As They Meet A Belt & Zipper Quota) examples: Sephiroth, Xehanort, Weiss, Ilparazzo and that’s all I can think of right now.

The other variations aren’t really pinned down to any type of character. I tried to draw a correlation between orange and maybe a few more between males, but they are just random and unassigned. This isn’t meant to be a general list, but my observation of patterns I have found in anime. Feel free to comment, deny it, support it, add to it, or whatever.
