* ''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.

* Toki used to be drawn in a purple dress or in something that is purple, as can be seen here: [[http://akaichounokoe.deviantart.com/art/Lady-Toki-at-her-finest-285584418?q=gallery%3AAkaiChounokoe%2F34256865&qo=223]]. While doubling as PurpleIsPowerful (she is wealthy and is seen of high status) and GracefulLadiesLikePurple, it is also a color motif for insanity, fitting seeing as she is mentally ill. However, more commonly she is drawn in black, as can be seen here[[http://akaichounokoe.deviantart.com/art/Smiles-Can-Hide-Secrets-432520641]], a color that represents secrecy and mourning (or, for that matter, sorrow), a well as power and control, along with elegance, which in turn symbolizes her being, seeing as she does hide secrets, as well as hide her inner sorrow but, at the same time, she does hold some power and control, which would be most prominent seeing that she is queen of the {{Yakuza}} and is in charge of numerous illegal organizations. Ironically, her inner sorrow and secrets is what drove her insane in the first place.
** In that vein, Doki is typically drawn in something pink or white, as can be seen [[http://akaichounokoe.deviantart.com/art/Doki-in-pink-and-pearls-398785910 here]] and [[http://akaichounokoe.deviantart.com/art/Madgie-what-did-you-do-XXX-Book-Cover-335471109 here]], something that the former represents sweetness and she is a very nice person and the latter is supposed to represent her innocence or, rather, saintliness, during troubling times.

* Season two of ''Carmilla'' has a mild version of this. As Perry [[spoiler: wears progressively darker colors until she is revealed to be the Dean]] and Mattie has almost the opposite arc [[spoiler: she incorporates lighter colors as she becomes more comfortable with the protagonists, and when she dies, her dress is predominantly white with hints of black.]]

* In ''Podcast/AliceIsntDead,'' HumanoidAbomination The Thistle Man is heavily associated with the color yellow. He wears a yellow baseball cap and is also referred to as "the man with the yellow fingernails." The {{Narrator}} stresses repeatedly that they're a unique, translucent shade.

* ''Film/CriesAndWhispers'': Red, red, '''red''' everywhere. The walls and carpets of the lavish family mansion are red. The curtains are red. The bedsheets are red. Maria's sexy lingerie is red. Maria's daughter is dressed in red. The credits roll over a red screen. The screen flashes red for scene transitions. The book that Anna reads to Agnes even has a red cover.
--> '''Ingmar Bergman''': ''Cries and Whispers'' is an exploration of the soul, and ever since childhood, I have imagined the soul to be a damp membrane in varying shades of red.
