The division between light, medium and dark can be murky... especially with so many varied references to go by. Take it with a grain of salt.

Note: Every show has a different color palatte ~ some characters listed may look extremely light in solo references but are visibly darker than other characters in the cast when shown side-by-side. In a few cases, a character's race or complexion seems to have been changed in the transition from manga to anime ~ in these cases, only the medium where their skin is darker is listed.

Linked references may go down -- in that case copy/paste and bring the name to google.

Stars (*) represent major/core-cast characters.

If you have more to add ~ please do!
