  1. There's also Nilin, from Remember Me, and Aveline, from Assassin's Creed Liberation!

  2. Thank you so much for this list! <3

  3. This is absolutely helpful. thank you so much.

    1. CHEL AND JASMINE ARE NOT DARK! TAN AT MOST! BUT THIS IS A HORRIBLE LIST! darkskin doesnt mean black either!
      someone who is beige is dakr skin to you? who was this list made by? a white ghost

    2. Are you fucking kidding me? Jasmine's ARABIC. Her skin is naturally darker! Unlike your dumb ass orange spray tan

    3. @Samantha boohoo, but no Jasmine at-least is definitely dark. So stop whining.

      Most Arabic people aren't actually dark-skinned, just saying. In reality, majority of them are quite pale, but they've got a it of a golden glow. Try googling some Pakistani modern actresses, they're like that basically.
      Though yep, Jasmine's obviously on the dark side.

    4. Actually, actresses in Pakistan are usually supposed to be white because white is apparently prettier for some dumb reason. Actresses are bad examples of actual representation.

    5. Can we not drag geography and culture into this because someone was being whiny and uneducated?
      Just appreciate how helpful this list actually was, I mean damn!


  5. CHEL AND JASMINE ARE NOT DARK! TAN AT MOST! BUT THIS IS A HORRIBLE LIST! darkskin doesnt mean black either!
    someone who is beige is dakr skin to you? who was this list made by? a white ghost

    1. Exactly which is why 'Tan' is in the title. please understand what you are reading before you type next time.

  6. CHEL AND JASMINE ARE NOT DARK! TAN AT MOST! BUT THIS IS A HORRIBLE LIST! darkskin doesnt mean black either!
    someone who is beige is dakr skin to you? who was this list made by? a white ghost

    1. Listen lady I don't know why your freaking out over some cartoon characters

    2. Quit acting like saying middle eastern/south asian people are brown (which, newsflash: the majority are) is akin to somebody spitting acid at you. If you weren't so racist, you'd realize fair skin isn't the only definition of beauty. Sad.

  7. the people who cosplay chel and jasmien are caucasians!!!!

    1. No one cares about your autism.

    2. please explain their Caucasian background so i may understand their complexion better. also with movie background because artists dont pick different shades to be funny

    3. Jasmine is of middle east decent so yeah she has brown skin, also just because caucasian people have cosplay ed them before doesn't mean it is a testiment to what the original character looked like. Take your negativity elsewhere dumbass

    4. Anybody can cosplay anything it doesn't matter. Jasmine is a brown skinned chick, get over it lol. Does Agrabah sound like a white people place to you? lol I don't know about Chel though.

    5. Chel is wheat-colored, which is medium skintone, so yeah, compared to the majority of obviously beige or ghostly white characters she's brown. People need to stop fussing. it's a list of non-white characters. Brown, black, tan, who cares. They're ethnic. For those of us who wanna cosplay a character closer to our own pigmentation for a change.

  8. This list is helpful. Better than combing through a million results the internet, Thanks! ;)

  9. Gloria (of "Daphne") and Lupin III's girlfriend both have unusual hair and eye colors but it doesn't mean anything but it's only done for contrast and colorfulness the same as a girl having, say, naturally green hair and orange eyes. Thanks for the list, I had a great time going through it. Now here are 3 new characters from me to you. :)

    @Samantha: I didn't find too many obviously not Black at all type characters in this list. You should see some poeple's lists! Apparently "peach" or a barely noticeable yellow tinge is enough to land characters on a dark skinned or Black characters list. It's ridiculous. I think this list was good but you're entitled to your opinion.

  10. ...Somehow my post wasn't published correctly. It's showing up like someone else wrote it, made a few mistakes and left a lot of stuff out! WTF. Anyway...

    1. Gloria from Daphne in the Brilliant Blue
    2. Gloria of Devil May Cry 4
    3. The young Black woman Lupin III was seeing in Harlem in the movie, "Missed By A Dollar".

  11. you added katara, but not korra?

  12. Oooohhhh, But what about
    -Korra from Legend of Korra
    -Mink from DRAMAtical Murder
    -Minatsuki Takumi from Deadman Wonderland
    -Agni from Black Butler
    -Mizuki from DRAMAtical Murder
    -Nagi Kengamine from Deadman Wonderland
    -Prince Soma from Black Butler
    -Karako Koshio from Deadman Wonderland ?
    They are also darker skinned, and very awesome, but very great job in this list!

    1. this was a female dark skinned or tan list

    2. this was a female dark skinned or tan list

  13. how about Lilith Sahl & Shahrazad al-Rahman from Trinity Blood too?

  14. Just a note, the picture you up next to Tanya (Battle Athletes) is incorrect.
    That picture is of Shayla-Shayla, from El-Hazard.

  15. Great list! Nice to see these dark skinned beauties in anime and pop culture!

  16. Mutsuki Tooru from the Tokyo Ghoul:re manga.

  17. Are we going to ignore the fact that Pocahontas was NATIVE AMERICAN? She isn't black. This is obnoxious.

  18. Where the hell are the men at? I can dig this is full of awesome female roles but really, where are the dudes? Where is Afro?

    1. Because this post says "female anime characters list 2013" :O

  19. Penny from the Proud Family is misnamed, otherwise great list!

  20. Fang is dark skinned?... Uhhh....

  21. Casca from Berserk!! That is one badass girl.

  22. I'd actually swap Alkaid out for Bordeaux. If you wanted to follow the theme of your list, technically Alkaid doesn't fit. She's not dark skinned or tan.

    HOWEVER, that being said, I love to see her being cosplayed because she's pretty boss.

    ALSO TABBY! She's from the first round of the Twilight Brigade. She's the cat girl in the picture:

    And the character you have for Tanya is actually Shayla Shayla from El-Hazard. And TECHNICALLY the Magic Knight Rayearth girls are: Tarta (the ponytail) and Tatra (the long haired). Tarta's hot headed, Tatra's a sweetie <3

  23. just saying Nami Komatsu from nana is the style Banba or some type of gyaru

  24. No Canary from Hunter X Hunter? lacking

  25. Calintz Jerevinan from War of Genesis III part 2 is black.

  26. There is also:

    Princess Yue(Avatar: The Last Airbender)
    Avatar Korra (The Legend of Korra)
    Suyin Beifong (The Legend of Korra)
    Opal(The Legend of Korra)
    Taranee Cook(W.I.T.C.H.)
    Jazmine DuBois (Boondocks)
    Flora (Winx Club)
    Sasha (Bratz)
    Yasmin (Bratz)
    Iris (Pokemon)
    Seychelles (Hetalia; as she was changed to appear accurate to the actual Africans)
    Iza (Legend of Zelda)
    Eska (The Legend of Korra)
    Senna (The Legend of Korra)
    Hama (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
    Dahlia (Pokemon)

  27. Yeah....most of these are black
    Bt some of these are just tan white people tho
    like that's not black
    it's just grouping anyone who isn't pearly white in anime and putting them here
    some of them are clearly white
    like triela from gunslinger girl is tan
    just saying

  28. Mariah, Hermes/Ermes from Jojo's bizarre adventure

  29. It's 2018.. this post was done in 2013.. Why are some many post asking for characters that weren't out until 2015..2016.. just post new people instead of asking ridicules questions..

    I think a few league of Legends characters need to be added.


  30. They aren't dark-skinned but more of a light tan. You should add the twins from Durarara. They are like a shade of light caramel in most scenes. Though most ppl who draw fanart of them white-whash it. Its good for lighter tanned people
