** During WW2, the Irish army's uniform color and helmet style were at the time similar to Germany's. With a serious possibility existing that the Germans would invade Ireland as an easier alternative to directly attacking Britain, having Irish troops patrolling a border with nervous British soldiers on the other side primed and ready to recognise German equipment was held to be too big a risk, and thus [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plan_W#Irish_planning the Irish adopted British-style helmets and uniforms]] so they would be readily identifiable as neutral troops and not enemies from a distance by British soldiers.

* Fruits change colour depending on how ripe they are. This is thought to be why humans evolved colour vision in the first place. Additionally, recent studies have shown that women see far more different shades of color than men (where a man will see "beige," women will see beige, tan, bone, ecru, and several other shades that men don't). They believe this is a holdover from the old caveman days, when women were the gatherers and had to differentiate between "safe to eat" red berries and "highly poisonous" red berries.

** War Plan Yellow: War in China. Not necessarily ''with'' China (whether the Republic of China under Chiang Kai-Shek, the Communists under Mao Zedong, or any of the warlords running amok); rather it concerned itself mainly with defending American interests in Beijing and Shanghai. Yes, there are UnfortunateImplications regarding the choice of color for China (and Japan as well - what do you get when you mix red (Britain and its navy) and yellow?).

Blue eyes are the signature of the water tribes, green eyes are the signature of the Earth Kingdom, yellow/golden eyes are the signature of the Fire Nation, and gray eyes are the signature of the air nomads.

* ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story]]'' has several bosses and minigames where Mario and Luigi can each only deal with half of the threats--for instance, a scrolling shooter-style minigame where each of the things to be shot can only be shot by a specific brother. Mario and Luigi wear red and green, respectively, so whatever Mario targets is red and whatever Luigi targets is green.
