I wanted to update with one more thing. Some games allow you to choose different color palettes for the characters. You should check to see if they have one for a darker complexion. I know Arcana Heart does this, and I am pretty sure a few other fighting games do it as well.

Integra*, Jan Valentine and Alexander Anderson* and Tubalcaine "Dandy" Alhambra from the Manga/Anime Hellsing also have darker skin, especially compared to the rest of the series (that's pretty pale.)

Stars for the major characters.

-Ed from Cowboy Bebop is a good one. White people never look good as Ed, only people with medium to dark skin

=Katara from Avatar the Last Airbender

-Any of the blue characters from James Cameron's Avatar (another thing I've never seen white people pull off well for some reason)

And then branching out some more past anime:

-Tiana from the Princess and the Frog


-Kida from Atlantis

-Ganguro Girls (Japanese culture trend-pretty cool if you like cute and colorful) http://www.jaaj-jo.com/mysite/images/Ganguro.htm

As for males:

-Afro from Afro Samurai

-Sahz from Final Fantasy XIII

-Zoro from One Piece-he's just supposed to be tanned I think, but hispanic and black guys always pull it off better

-Barett from Final Fantasy VII

Hope this helps!

Yuri Kellarney of Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team is kinda tan (he's of Slavic decent if it matters). Karen Joshua is also kinda tan, at least compared to the other characters on her squad save for Terry Sanders.

I would die happy if someone cosplayed the first to a con I'm at BTW <3

Sonson from Marvel Vs. Capcom 2

Would also like to point out that
Shadow the Hedgehog has a darker skin tone. So it would technically be more accurate to be tan :3 (Never understood why so many human versions of shadow depict him being white o.o)

Same can be said about Rouge and Knuckles in Sonic Adventure 2 though it seems that Sega made their skin color lighter in more recent games.
Cons I go to:
San Diego Comic Con
Anime Conji
Anime Expo(?)

Cosplays Working On:
Dragon Quest 8 Hero

Hmmm...I don't now if you would count these, since they are not their natural skin tones, but since they are really popular series, i thought I should suggest these.

There is a running joke in K-ON! about how easily/dark Azusa Nakano tans. This cosplay could easily be done with a medium skin tone, preferably wearing her pink bathing suit.

There is a running joke in Azumanga Daioh! that is exactly the same, with the character of Kagura.

Hey um, Vaan from Final Fantasy XII and Dissidia 012 has pretty tan skin... tan enough for a medium/light tan skinned person to pull of... he's about the same as Tidus in CG but a bit darker in-game, so he's good
also, Firion form Final Fantasy II or rather, Dissidia Final Fantasy definitely has medium skin

Oh! and for the Girls, Prishe from Final Fantasy XI is also in Dissidia with several outfit (like Vaan and Firion in dissidia) is about medium to dark
Vaan: http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__.../e/e5/Vaan.PNG
Firion: http://images.wikia.com/finalfantasy...dia_Firion.png
as you can guess, I love Final fantasy :P
