* ''Film/TopGun'' has the heads-up displays in green for the good guys and red for the bad guys. In reality, they were and mainly still are all green, given the behaviour of the high-performance green-screen cathode ray tube displays used to ensure they're readable in bright sunlight. The green displays shown in the film are nothing like accurate representations of a real F-14's HUD in any case, although there's no such thing as a MiG-28, so it's hard to say that this is entirely wrong - but it's highly implausible.

* ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'': Used as a way for NoticeThis: Anything that can be interacted with (chests, switches, quest items) has a green light or aura. Considering Pandora is a barren wasteland, greenery really stands out.

* ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'': The ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' Series: Used as a way for NoticeThis: Anything that can be interacted with (chests, switches, quest items) has a green light or aura. Considering Pandora is a barren wasteland, wasteland for the most part, greenery really stands out.out. While the sequels are much more colorful, brightly colored chests still stand out.
** The weapons and equipables like shields have ColorCodedItemTiers and follow the mnemonic "'''W'''hen '''G'''randma '''b'''urps, '''P'''atrick '''o'''beys": '''W'''hite, '''G'''reen, '''B'''lue, '''P'''urple, '''O'''range. White and Green are the average grade (white white being useless garbage quickly), Blue being better than them and sometimes being one of a kind items, Purple being better than better, and Orange being legendary items.
*** ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands2}}'' adds a few more ranks with Magenta being for the new "E-tech" weapons, weapons that use what was learned from Eridian technology, and Cyan for "Pearlesent" weapons in NewGamePlus. ''Captain Scarlet and her Pirate Booty'' adds Pink for it's Seraph items, which are powerful but controlled by their drawbacks or gimmicks.
*** Finally, ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands ThePreSequel}}'' removes Magenta and Cyan and changes Pink to "Glitch weapons" in the ''"Claptastic" Voyage'' DLC

* ''Literature/VillainsByNecessity'': {{Played straight}} and subverted. Sam wears black, Mizzamir wears white. [[spoiler: The subversion lies in that Mizzamir is a ''deluded'' wizard who only cares about Light and Dark, not right or wrong. Sam is an assassin, but other than that quite a decent fellow.]]
** Sam also notes that assassins take this to the logical extreme of wearing black undergarments, the better not to give away one's position if one's outer garments tear on an assignment and, as he puts it, "show a white bunny tail." At the start of the book, Sam has also had his naturally blond hair dyed black for the same reason.

Added DiffLines:

* In WebVideo/SkyWilliams' thumbnails, there are colored clouds that mean different things. A black cloud means the video focuses on a dark subject matter. The other colors are based on a "rarity system" similar to what's found in Creator/{{Blizzard}} games. White is "common," blue "rare," purple "epic," and orange "legendary." In practice, they denote the amount of editing and effort put into the quality of the content, meaning that a "common" video might merely be a ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' session and a "legendary" video might be a full-blown comedy skit. The clouds are described in more detail [[https://www.reddit.com/r/SkyWilliams/wiki/index on the subreddit.]]

** And even then, as they were all one big happy country beforehand, there were [[FriendlyFire Union troops who wore grey and Confederate troops who wore blue.]] These uniforms were largely phased out as soon as the first friendly fire incidents occurred.
