In A Link to the Past, due to the limited color palette of the SNES, Link's hair was shown as pink. (In the artwork it was shown as brown, though)
I always thought this was hilarious. Link usually has brown or blonde hair...but PINK? really? XD
and yes, it IS pink, not purple. I know because I copied the color from Link's sprite.
