* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', clothing is color-coded by nation and the wielders of ElementalPowers therein. Air Nomads wear oranges and yellows, Earth Kingdom citizens wear greens and browns, Fire Nation citizens wear reds and blacks, and members of the Southern and Northern Water Tribes wear blues, whites, and purples. This also extends to the colors of Team Avatar's members, since they're essentially an in-universe FiveTokenBand. There are some exceptions; for instance, [[TheOrder The Order of the White Lotus]] consists of citizens from all the different Nations, and they have one type of uniform which, while dark-blue like some Water Tribe clothing, is distinct from any one Nation's style shown in the series and Azula's famous blue fire as opposed to the traditional [[FireIsRed red-orange]] that all other character use.

This can manifest in many ways. Some common ones are enemies being the color of their element, element-resistant armor having that element's color, and elemental spells being color coded in menus.

* Directly used in ''RuneSoldierLouie''. Although the world doesn't particularly focus on elemental colors, at one point, Louie directly invokes this trope when he has to place five colored orbs in place to represent the five elements. The tricky part is, as this page shows, there's no universally accepted set of colors, so he has some trouble, mostly over if blue represents air or water.
