* 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. [[spoiler: Particularly the operating manual for the ForgottenSuperweapon mentioned in the title.]]

* In ''Videogame/FallenLondon'', along with ''Videogame/SunlessSea'', there's a whole spectrum of them. There is Irrigo, the unremembered color, which causes people to forget things the longer they are exposed to it, and soaks into you like radiation after a while. There is also Violant, described as the color of necessary but troublesome connections[[labelnote:*]]It also semi-counters Irrigo, and anything written in Violant ink is very hard to forget. Treaties written in Violant ink tend to be the result of very desperate times, for this reason[[/labelnote]]; Apocyan, the blue of memory[[labelnote:*]]Usually found on particularly glowy and valuable bits of Unterzee coral[[/labelnote]]; Cosmogone, the color of remembered sunlight[[labelnote:*]]Strangely enough, it seems to encourage plentiful fungus growth. Usually found in dreams, and in cinders that have been soaking in celestial radiations for too long[[/labelnote]]; Viric, the green of shallow sleep and the light from mirrors[[labelnote:*]]Which turns slightly unnerving when you know most mirrors IRL have a green tinge. Still, let's just say mirrors in the Neath are dangerous, and have links with dreams[[/labelnote]]; Peligin, the color of the deepest zee[[labelnote:*]]Both the actual water and [[KrakenAndLeviathan its monsters]]. Hunters who have eaten the flesh of these beasts also get Peligin eyes[[/labelnote]]. And then there's Gant, which remains when all other colors are gone[[labelnote:*]]Quite hard to find, and usually ''bad'' news when you do[[/labelnote]].
