* The ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' derivative ''{{Dragonlance}}'' fantasy series employs this trope in a rather bizarre (but amusing) manner. The cover art color schemes of trilogies written by primary authors Tracy Hickman and Margaret Weis are always red for the first book, blue for the second book, and green for the third. Individual books and series of books written by other authors, set in the same world, are immune to this trope. This made sense in the first trilogy in that Red=Autumn, Blue=Winter, and Green=Spring.

* In the ''{{Belgariad}}'', each of the seven gods and anything associated with them are a specific colour. Not surprisingly, [[GoodColorsEvilColors the most explicitly good god is blue, and the evil god is red]]. Their father is white.
* In HarryPotter, three of the four Hogwarts houses are Gryffindor (red, the house most commonly associated with the heroes), Ravenclaw (blue, the house for curiosity and creativity), and Hufflepuff (yellow, the hardworking and loyal house). The fourth is Slytherin (green - surprisingly, it is the house for ambition and cunning rather than any traits usually associated with green).

** ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer: Generals'' pits the USA (blue) and China (red) against the GLA (green). A minor subversion, in that blue and red are atypically fighting together against the third party.
** A more typical example is in ''DuneII'', which inspired VideoGame/CommandAndConquer - the blue Atreides, red Harkonnens, and green Ordos all fight each other. Even though the original book specifically states that the Harkonnens are blue and the Atreides are green or red. But then we can't have blue bad guys and red good guys, can we?

* The FreudianTrio of ''ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace'' have yellow (Arthur), blue (Guenevere), and red (Lancelot). Unusually, Arthur is the leader (although he's ''also'' the gentle, laid-back one). Also, Lancelot is uptight and Guenevere is volatile, reversing the usual RedOniBlueOni symbolism. (Secondary characters also have distinctive colours, meaning the entire main cast would have a RainbowMotif if we ever saw all of them together.)

* In OHumanStar, the characters don't wear the colors themselves, but scenes from Al's perspective are tinted blue, Brendan's are tinted red, and Sulla's will probably be green judging by some of the bonus art.

* ''{{Franchise/Fire Emblem}}'' also uses this at the beginning of most games with the main lords wearing blue, followed by a pair of red and green knights. Other examples that don't fit that mold:

* The OriginalGeneration copilots in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment'' stick to this, owing to their FanNickname "The Powerpuff Girls." Similar to the FireEmblem example above, Katia and Melua switch roles, (gameplay and story wise) with [[FragileSpeedster Katia Grineal]] being the uptight one, and [[MightyGlacier Melua Melna Meia]] being a bit quieter. [[FieryRedhead Festenia]] [[LightningBruiser Muse]] plays her role straight though.

* ''Disney/TheThreeCaballeros'' are Panchito Pistoles (red), José Carioca (green), and DonaldDuck (blue). Panchito leads, but only because it's his third of the movie (Donald starts solo before being joined by José, and then the two of them go see Pancho).
