* ''Anime/ActionHeroineCheerFruits'', a series that {{Homage}}s Franchise/SuperSentai, naturally makes use of this. The cast includes Ann '''Aka'''gi (red), Mikan '''Ki'''se (yellow), Mana '''Midori'''kawa (green), Genki and Yuki '''Ao'''yama (blue), Hatsuri '''Momo'''i (pink), Roko '''Kuro'''ki (black) and Kanon '''Shi'''mura (purple). Naturally, when the girls put on a {{Tokusatsu}} stage show, [[ColorCodedSecretIdentity they all wear the appropriate colored costume]]. The group's leader Misaki Shirogane is the OddNameOut since the other girls just blatantly have the kanji for their respective colors in their names while her name uses homophones[[note]]"shiro" can mean white while "shirogane" can mean either silver or platinum, but the kanji used mean "roots of the castle"[[/note]]; she still gets in on it by playing a character ''named'' "Platinum" who wears a white costume.
