** Radagast is parodied with Ridicully the Brown (probably with the intention of making you think of... certain body functions[[note]]It's explained in ''The Discworld Companion'' that he was "a Brown" in the UU Boat Race when he was a student. This is a parody of the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race, where the participants are Blues, because they're not rowing up the Ankh.[[/note]], who, rather than a NatureLover, is more of an EgomaniacHunter.

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' is centered entirely around a system of five colors of magic: white (focusing on purity and light), green (focusing on nature and life), red (fire and strength), black (death and decay), and blue (air/water, technology, trickery and mental powers). They sometimes dress in those colors, too, but thankfully don't always. Part of the reason for dressing "in-color" is that most card art has a palette that matches the card's color.

* ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'': Wizards are given colors like Rezo the Red Priest, for example. The reason it doesn't enter into it much (especially outside the novels) is that Lina's is "The Pink", which has a reputation in Japanese Culture. In-universe, there's also the fact that Lina utterly hates her title, so she goes out of her way to ''not'' draw attention to it.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' setting of ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'', this is how the Towers of High Sorcery work. The division between White, Red and Black Robes serves a two-fold purpose. First, it serves as a declaration of philosophy about the purpose of magic and how it can be used[[note]] which ultimately boils down to making CharacterAlignment obvious; White Robes believe in using magic for philanthropic purposes and are Good, Red Robes care mostly about developing magic and so are Neutral, and Black Robes believe in a combination of "magic is power; power is life" and that [[ForScience magic should be advanced at any moral cost]], marking them as Evil[[/note]]. Secondly, it marks the wizard's specialty, as each Tower focuses on mastery of two specific styles of magic. White Robes focus on [[DispelMagic Abjuration]] and [[{{Seers}} Divination]] magic, Red Robes on [[MasterOfIllusion Illusion]] and [[HollywoodAlchemy Transmutation]] magic, and Black Robes on [[CharmPerson Enchantment]] magic and [[TheNecromancer Necromancy]].
