** In the follow-up short ''Disney/FrozenFever'' Elsa magically changes her signature light blue dress into bright green [[note]]How "ice / snow / cold powers" also somehow give her "textile / dye-changing powers", is another headscratcher altogether, but let's not get into that here...[[/note]] which seems very meaningful. 1) Elsa changing her clothing into Anna's color, represents her efforts in this short to bond with Anna (after all, it is all about her giving Anna a perfect birthday to make up for the previous birthdays she missed out on). Plus, if you're familiar with the symbolism of the Chakras: green stands for the Heart Chakra or love - in this case sisterly love, which is what the short is all about - even Anna & Kristoff's romantic love takes a backseat here to the sisterly love. 2) Green being the color of spring or summer more than winter, represents Elsa not being overpowered by her ice powers (which can be represented as blue) anymore, but being in control of them and using them for good. 3) After getting control of her powers at the end of ''Frozen'' (which also took place in summer), she thawed Arendelle from the accidental winter she put it in - and Anna's birthday is on the summer solstice (confirmed by WordOfGod), so Elsa's dressing green can represent her being totally at ease with the summer now and NOT being in danger of changing it into a winter anymore.

In Drakengard 2, Legna, Nowe's dragon, starts out as being a rich blue. He then turns to a darker, almost midnight blue, and finally goes to black. In Drakengard 3, Mikhail, Zero's dragon, is white with a black underbelly.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', all the noble houses [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience throw their heraldic colors around]] every chance they get. The major players at the beginning of the series are the grim, dour, "[[MeaningfulName stark]]" Starks whose colors are grey and white, and the rich, opulent Lannisters whose colors are red and gold (which contrast plays into the whole "ice and fire" motif as well).
** The Night's Watch and the Kings guard wear black and white, respectively. Both represent moral ambiguity.
*** Though in different ways- the King's Guard is very respectable, but even the heroic characters among them tend to be assholes, subverting LightIsGood. The men of the Night's Watch are mostly thieves and other petty criminals, and mostly aren't the virtuous defenders of the realm that they should be, but tend to be commanded by men of high, if primitive, moral standards (for what those are worth in Westeros).

* LordOfTheRings: Saruman's title of "the White" seems to mark him as the leader of the Istari (wizards). However, as part of his FaceHeelTurn, he opts to become Saruman of Many Colors. While that may seem like a step up from White, Gandalf notes that, since White is all colors together, Many Colors are symbolic of discord and divisiveness. For the record, the other wizards use mostly neutral colors like grey or brown (besides the two blue ones).

* ''Manga/MaidSama'' spends a chapter/episode examining what color motif best suits Misaki, prompted by Maid Latte scheduling a {{sentai}}-themed "Maid Rangers" event. Usui ultimately pegs her as "white" - untouched by any other colors, reflecting the way that Misaki sticks to her own path and does not allow other people to influence or divert her.
