* It is possible for many animals and even some humans to see ultra-violet light. In the case of humans, this typically occurs if the lens of your eye is lost or replaced; it ordinarily absorbs UV light, but those who have had their lenses removed can see a short distance into the UV spectrum. This is less exciting than it sounds in the case of humans, because it is picked up by our ordinary rods and cones; the light appears as a washed-out violet.

* There are multiple alleles for the various color receptor genes in the human eye; some humans have two alleles for the same colors, and thus end up with a pair of close but not identical color receptors in their eyes. They are [[http://neuroblog.stanford.edu/?p=5181 tetrachromats]], but exactly how their vision differs from a normal person's is still being investigated - they do not see a whole new world of colors, but there is some evidence that they may be slightly better at distinguishing colors from each other.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/ThisImmortal'', the [[HumanoidAliens Vegans]] perceive a different range of colours than humans do, starting deeper down in the ultraviolet range and stopping before red. This results in them seeing two colours where humans see white.

** For that matter, colors ''of any sort'' are simply the brain's way of illustrating differences in light's electromagnetic wavelength, not something inherent to the light-energy itself.

Added DiffLines:

* Early Creator/IsaacAsimov short story "The Weapon Too Dreadful To Use" features [[ScienceMarchesOn an inhabitable Venus]] whose native people have much, much greater colour perception than humans. This becomes a plot point, as it means no humans can read their ancient languages without a spectrograph.
