* ''TheLostCrown: A Ghost-hunting Adventure'' falls somewhere between this and the Splash Of Color option, using black & white (or black & green, for night-vision camera views) as a base, but highlighting occasional elements of a scene with color to convey mood or make bloodstains apparent. It also {{lampshade|Hanging}}s itself, when Nigel remarks that Dr. Black's paintings "lack color".

* ''Film/PaperMoon'': Set in the Great Depression, it was Peter Bogdanovich's follow up to ''Film/TheLastPictureShow'' (see above); also, he reportedly feared the father and daughter team of Ryan and Tatum O'Neal would look to good in color to be believable as 1930s con artists.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''[[Film/{{Halloweentown}} Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge]]'', Halloweentown loses its color as its citizens fall victim to the "Grey Spell", which [[HumanityEnsues slowly changes them into drab humans]]. Those in early stages of the spell appear black and white, with remnants of their otherworldly physical traits and/or fashion sense providing splashes of color, while those in later stages appear completely monochrome.

* ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'' has the DarkWorld, which despite its name doesn't really fit the trope; it's no more evil or sinister than the normal world, and it's visually and geographically identical to the island from which you enter it except that it's all in shades of gray: gray grass, gray sky, gray water, gray enemies (who are slightly harder to beat than their in-color counterparts), etc. It makes it surprisingly hard to get around and find stuff, although treasure chests are still in color, and show up even better against gray grass than green. Your party is also still in color, and the townsfolk (who are all in black and white) comment on how funny-looking you are, being in color and all.
