->''"For one of dragon's blood to not take up weapons, to not prepare night and day to slaughter any enemies that would come against them – it is unthinkable. It is – one who does such a thing, who believes the world will not be dangerous, will not strive to kill him... That is what we call insane."''

The strangest of these characters are those who espouse Blue And Orange Morality. These characters have a moral framework that is so utterly alien and foreign to human experience that we can't peg them as good or evil. They aren't a ChaoticNeutral [[TheUnfettered Unfettered]], though they may seem to act [[CloudCuckooLander terrifyingly randomly;]] nor are they necessarily a LawfulNeutral [[TheFettered Fettered]], because our and their understanding of 'law' as a concept may not even be equivalent. There might be a [[InsaneTrollLogic logic]] behind their actions, it's just that they operate with entirely different sets of values and premises with which to draw their conclusions. It's also worth noting that such cultures are just as likely to be something we'd find appalling, as they are to be something we'd find benign and/or weird. [[HumansThroughAlienEyes They may also find us appalling, benign, or weird even if we don't see them that way.]]

Compare {{Xenofiction}}, HumansAreCthulhu, HumanityIsInfectious (all often involving this), AboveGoodAndEvil, AffablyEvil / FauxAffablyEvil (they sometimes can come across as this), EvenEvilHasStandards (when handled poorly or bizarrely), EvilCannotComprehendGood (less elaborate forms that resemble this in practice), and NonMaliciousMonster (which occasionally requires this). When two sides go to war and nothing will stop them except total annihilation, that's GuiltFreeExterminationWar. If the character genuinely knows everything will turn out okay, allowing the plot to treat them as a good guy no matter how cruel, irresponsible or fascist this makes them by our standards, that's OmniscientMoralityLicense. If this trope applies exclusively to sexual preferences, that's BlueAndOrangeSexuality.

** Many have observed the way the contrast between the way Jesus preached not to judge others, and the way that some Christians treat LGBT people due to the infamous Leviticus quote. This has led to Christians being the nicest people in the world until they find out you are gay, and then shunning you. This is a sad reality for many people who've come out to their religious parents.

Has nothing to do with the following: Bucknell University, The University of Illinois, The University of Virginia, The University of Florida, Auburn University, Syracuse University, Hope College, Gettysburg College or Boise State University (the colors of all of which are blue and orange, albeit different shades in each case). Nor the Denver Broncos, Chicago Bears, New York Knicks, New York Mets, or [[MemeticMutation Mango Sentinels]]. Or the City of New York, for that matter. Furthermore, do not confuse with [[OrangeBlueContrast Blue and Orange Movies]]. Also has nothing to do with the KarmaMeter in ''Franchise/MassEffect'' nor the [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} Aperture Science Hand Held Portal Device]] or even the [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience light scheme]] in ''Film/{{Tron}}'' and its universe.
