** Most major Decepticons are given dull colors of black, grey, silver and navy green to make them contrastable from the Autobots - despite the fact that in almost every ''Transformers'' fiction outside the live-action movies they're just as colorful as the Autobots. Starscream however is gaining back his red and black in ''Film/Bumblebee'' and not be almost entirely grey.

* Marvel's Netflix shows are typically associated with a specific color, usually a prominent color of the protagonist's traditional costume. This is arguably at its most blatant in ''[[Series/TheDefenders2017 The Defenders]]'', where early episodes have each main character's scenes graded in their respective color (this is more or less dropped towards the end of episode 3 when the heroes finally unite).
** Daredevil - Red
** Jessica Jones - Purple in her solo series, blue in ''The Defenders''
** Luke Cage - Yellow
** Iron Fist - Green

* Marvel's Netflix shows are typically ''Series/{{The Defenders|2017}}'': Each principal character and the supporting cast they bring from their solo show wear matching colors, and scenes featuring them tend to focus on those colors, with multi-character scenes featuring those of the characters present.
**Matt Murdock is
associated with a specific color, usually a prominent the color of the protagonist's traditional costume. This is arguably at its most blatant in ''[[Series/TheDefenders2017 The Defenders]]'', where early episodes have each main character's scenes graded in their respective color (this is more or less dropped towards the end of episode 3 when the heroes finally unite).
**
red. His neckties, glasses, cane, and Daredevil - Red
**
armor are all red. While we don't see it here, we know from a scene back in ''Series/{{Daredevil|2015}}'' season 1 that he sees the world in red flames, and his motif evokes a lot of imagery of rage and punishment. His scenes, such as his church and his apartment, are shot with red colors. Karen Page wears a red skirt and a black coat with red sash and inner liner, highlighting her {{unresolved sexual tension}} with Matt. Foggy Nelson's red only extends to patterns on his necktie, perhaps alluding to his recent break with Matt.
**Jessica Jones is connected with tones of blue. Scenes focusing on her tend to look cold and unwelcoming, but her scenes which don't focus on her tend to show blue, hopeful colors, like the sky. She mostly wears entirely black clothing, except for her blue jeans, and scenes featuring her tend to feature blue furnishings and blue-filtered light or water. On top of this, Trish Walker sports a blue coat, and blue clothing while she's in the police station.
**Luke Cage has a lot of warm, welcoming yellow colors in his scenes. He wears a yellow t-shirt, his hoodie has yellow accents, and he's introduced wearing an orange jumpsuit as he's being released from prison. His scenes show a lot of natural sunlight or lights through yellow shades, and most furnishings in his scenes are yellow or a light wood. Misty Knight also follows the pattern by wearing an orange turtleneck, similar but not identical to his own shirt (and reflecting her comic-book counterpart's color).
**Danny Rand primarily is shown with green, a very rich color, and he is the only one of the Defenders lineup to come from an upper-class background. He wears green sweaters or olive-green suits, his scenes such as at Colleenís dojo tend to have a lot of green hues, and his employees are also aware enough to compliment his company's green office space with green shirts.
**Fittingly, the Royal Dragon where the four of them regroup, rest, and eventually decide to work together has all of the above colors in its decor and lighting. Even the neon dragon sign is lit only with red, blue, yellow, and green bulbs.
**The Handís henchmen mostly wear black, and scenes featuring them look darker, even muting the heroes' colored atmosphere. Colleen and Malcolm also wear dark colors, which would be a metaphor for how Colleen betrayed Danny to Bakuto, and Malcolm spied on
Jessica Jones - Purple for Kilgrave.
**The Handís leadership dress primarily
in white, with their bases being as white as an Apple store, and Alexandra's initial sets emphasizing white backgrounds like clouds or a stark white cathedral. Murakami, Sowande, Madame Gao and Bakuto accent their white with black, but Alexandria pairs the white with gold, signifying her solo series, blue dominance over them. In her very first scene, she's asked to remove her white clothes and gold jewelry in ''The Defenders''
** Luke Cage - Yellow
** Iron Fist - Green
a sterile white room.
**Elektraís colors are literally split between the Handís black colors with her coat and Mattís red with her main armor, signifying her indecision. While she is trying to understand herself, scenes with her are a mismatched whirl of clashing colors, reflecting her own inner conflict. Several times, she contemplates a pair of sais with white and black guards; this ultimately foreshadows her murder of Alexandra.
**Claire Temple wears mostly white, grey, or shades of brown, which represents her familiarity with all of the Defenders team. Scenes with her frantically switch between the four Defenders' colors while each remain dominant and don't clash, further displaying her deep connection with all of them.
