* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'':
** The Powerpuff Girls are Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup -- always in that order. Pink, sky-blue, and neon-green, respectively.
** Their {{Spear Counterpart}}s the Rowdy Ruff Boys are blood-red, ocean-blue, and emerald-green.
** The canonical "fourth Powerpuff Girl" is Bunny, who was created by the girls themselves. They didn't do as good a job of it as the Professor did, and Bunny, while well-intentioned, was much larger than the girls, very dumb, and somewhat clumsy. She was also unstable, and exploded at the end of the episode she was created in. She wore light purple.



* The Warner Brothers and the Warner Sister in ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' carry this out somewhat: Dot wears pink, Wakko wears a blue turtleneck (and a red hat), and although Yakko usually wears brown slacks, his accent colour for props and such is green.
* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10'' has Grandpa Max in red and Gwen in blue. While Ben doesn't wear green clothing, green is the Omnitrix's signature color.

Goofy's signature color is orange, but he's often depicted as wearing green as well. Given that Sora is essentially a stand-in for Mickey, ''Kingdom Hearts'' is essentially following traditions at this point.

Added DiffLines:

** Until ''Attack of the Clones'', red blue and green were the only lightsabre colours to exist. Red always belonged to villains who were usually leaders within their factions. The most prominent blue users are Obi-Wan, Anakin, Luke (in his early days) and Rey, all of whom are noble, but with anger issues (though in Obi-Wan's case it's more about him being uptight). The most prominent green users are Qui-Gon, Yoda and Luke (in his later days), all of whom are wiser and more laid back.

* The central characters in ''Webcomic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld'': they tend to follw the main ground colour of their national flag. Sweden is dominantly blue: anally retentive, conservative, introverted, judgemental. Denmark is red: extrovert, insensitive, outgoing. (And pretty much an AuthorAvatar for Danish artist, Creator/{{Humon}}). The nearest thing to green is Norway, who fits the specification for the "green" character: laid-back, tolerant, easy-going. (No green in the Norwegian flag, though.)
