Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/GemsOfWar'', there are six gem/mana colours, and each seems to link to a certain theme (not quite ElementalPowers, but similar). Roughly speaking: red for fire; brown for earth; yellow for light and sky; green for nature; blue for water; and purple for darkness and maybe magic. Troops have an affinity to colour which is appropriate to them, used for charging their LimitBreak.

** {{White Mage}}s actually wear white.
** {{Black Mage}}s tend to wear blue instead of black, but, like [[Franchise/StarWars Jawas]], have their faces impossibly overshadowed to the point that their eyes actually ''glow'' in the shadow cast by the brim of their Sunday hats.
*** Lulu from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' is an exception: she does not hide her face, and instead plays this trope straight.
** [[RedMage Red Mages]] actually wear red.
** Blue Mages actually wear blue.
** Time Mages are usually associated with purple, but varies from title to title.
** Summoners are usually associated with green, but varies, especially when Summoning is triggered by [[UpgradeArtifact some kind of magicite]] or the summoner also fulfills one of the other mage classes (such as Yuna in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'').

Their summons usually also revolve around [[ElementalPowers dealing elemental damage]] and can be summed up as "like Black Magic, but more expensive and flashier," although they sometimes double as {{White Mage}}s, e.g. Rydia from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' and Garnet from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''.

* ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' does this explicitly with the Aes Sedai, sorting them into one of seven colored Ajahs based on interest: Red, dedicated to preventing another [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Breaking]], which mostly means severing male channelers; Blue, active with personal causes; Green, aimed at preparation for Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle; Grey, mediators and diplomacy; Yellow, the healers; Brown, who dedicate themselves to study and knowledge; and White, the philosophers. [[spoiler:And Black, the evil ones]].

* ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' has (at the beginning of the book) Saruman the White, Gandalf the Grey (later the White), and Radagast the Brown. Tolkien's notes also make reference to Alatar and Pallando the Blue. Alatar [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg has no unique color epithet]] [[note]]One illustrator gave him "Alatar - Darkness Slayer", which is still not quite this trope.[[/note]], but is also blue, and him and Pallando together are known as the Blue Wizards.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Franchise/{{Jewelpet}}'', all Jewelpets fall into one of four colour classes, depending on their eye colour - Magical Red, Blue, Green and Black. Magical Red can manipulate fire, Magical Blue can manipulate water and move objects, Magical Green can manipulate plants and use transformation magic, and Magical Black specializes in fortune-telling and the occult. Note that these are the definitions given in the toys' universe and they play no role whatsoever in the anime, where the Jewelpets' powers are given more freedom.

* An old SPI boardgame, ''Sorcerer'', featured eight colors of magic, but the main six were identical to each other, just having [[RockPaperScissors non-transitive relationships]] to each other (Green dominates Yellow dominates Orange dominates Red dominates Purple dominates Blue dominates Green), with White and Black being very rare; White was essentially any of the six main colors it wanted to be, and the Black Sorcerer was a PersonOfMassDestruction rather than having the array of spells the other colors had.
