* The vast majority of ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' shows feature color-based codenames for its heroes, to the point that it's easier to name the handful of exceptions where they ''don't'' use color-based codenames (which are ''Series/JAKQDengekitai'', ''Series/BattleFeverJ'', ''Series/TaiyouSentaiSunVulcan'', ''Series/DengekiSentaiChangeman'', ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'', ''Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger'') and ''Series/ResshaSentaiTokkyuger''.

* The Weston Academy Prefects in ''Manga/BlackButler'' - Edgar Redmond, Laurence Bluer, Gregory Violet, and Herman Greenhill.



* Several major characters in ''Anime/CodeGeass'' have the word 'red' in their names. Lelouch Lamperouge's surname is French for 'red lamp'. Suzaku Kururugi's first [[NamesTheSame name is the same]] as that of a [[TheFourGods mythical scarlet phoenix]]. Kallen's Japanese surname, Kouzuki, is written with the kanji for 'crimson moon'. It has been suggested that Li Xing Ke's name may also be a reference to red, (Shinkuu, the Japanese pronunciation of his surname, means "deep crimson", but is written with different characters).

* In ''Literature/WarriorCats'', the first part of cats' names come from things a forest cat would know, such as plants, animals, and natural objects. They also use a lot of colors -- every basic color except purple and pink. They even use some more unusual colors, such as "golden", "silver", "copper", "russet", "tawny", "amber", and "fallow". Oddly enough, out of 750-ish characters, "white" is the most common prefix of all, and even "fallow" got used about five times, but "brown" only got used once, and the cat in question disappeared from the cast list before recieving his warrior name.

* From the AubreyMaturin series: Aubrey and his friend and fellow post-captain Heneage Dundas discuss the captain of ''HMS Iris'', who not only wants to dress his bargemen in the colors of the rainbow (due to the connotation of his ship's name), but specifically seeks out sailors ''named'' for said colors: e.g., with surnames like "Scarlett," "White," or "Green." He offered Dundas a brass "chaser" cannon in exchange for one of his sailors whose name was Blew. (Dundas declined, sharing with Aubrey a dislike for "costumed" bargemen.)

* In ''FinalFantasyTacticsA2'', you get to engage with the Cinquleur (from cinq couleurs, five colours in French), whose names are Ruuj (red), Bliu (blue), Verre (green), Nware (black), and Blanch (white), each representing their job class. Unfortunately the enemy sprite colors don't match the names.

* The Red Ribbon Army in ''Manga/DragonBall'' has such soldiers as: General Brown, Colonel Silver, General White, Sergeant Murasaki (purple), General Blue, Colonel Violet, General Copper, Adjutant Black, and Commander Red. Even Tao Pai Pai fits the pattern, since his name means "peach-white-white".

Androids 17 and 18 (created by former Red Ribbon scientist Dr. Gero) also fit in, as their real names are Lapis and Lazuli (named after the deep blue gem), though [[AllThereInTheManual this wasn't revealed until an interview decades after the manga finished]].
