Ooh, I have some to contribute! Brother from FFX has a very tanned/bronzed complexion. Also, Dona and Maroda from FFX have medium toned skin. That's all I can think of right now, for whatever reason. -has been replaying FFX over the past couple of days-

Just going to add all those from Hetalia I can think of, since most characters from the other anime I'm familiar with have already been added.

Spain (Hetalia, manga) - medium
Greece (Hetalia, manga) - medium
South Italy (Hetalia manga) - tanned
Turkey (Hetalia, manga) - medium to dark
Egypt (Hetalia, manga) - medium
Cuba (Hetalia, manga and anime) medium to dark
The Asian nations, including Japan, South Korea, China, Thailand, and Hong Kong are all tanned. Japan and China appear in the anime and are major characters, the rest are manga only.

Taiwan (Hetalia, manga) - tanned
Seychelles (Hetalia, manga... I guess?) Her skin tone seems to change each time she's drawn, but she is an African nation, so probably medium or dark
Other African nations, including Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Ghana, all of dark skintone, who can be seen in the concept art for the hetalia game. So I guess manga?

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!

It depends a great deal on the reference.

In any case ~ he's still blonde, blue-eyed and likely meant to appear Japanese (or perhaps caucasian) with a bronze tan. For the most part I've tried to keep characters who seem to be darker only on account of summer/sports tans in the lighter category (unless they're ~really~ dark).
Basement Sale: Touhou: Mokou costume, clearfiles/shitajiki, NeoRomance/Angelique artbook, etc.

After Sheva was already mentioned, we shouldn't forget the other Resident Evil chars:

Ada Wong (multiple games): http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__.../1/10/Ada1.jpg

(as for those two, you see the difference in the skin tone better if they stand next to the american characters in the game)
