* ''OffWhite'' Subverts this. The black and white spirits seem neither good, nor evil, and are not always completely white or black (Iki, the suspected white spirit wolf, is gray, and a white spirit Raven is black).

** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path of Radiance]]'''s tutorial lampshades this: when two generic soldiers are used to demonstrate how [[HeelFaceTurn recruiting enemies]] works, the conversation goes something like this:
-->Blue Soldier: Good sir, will you join our cause?
-->Red Soldier: Sure, I'm tired of wearing red anyway.

* ''VideoGame/MegaManZero plays with this on multiple accounts. Zero (GoodIsNotNice) is mid tone red and dark blue (subversion of dark blue being evil as it seems to be for providing contrast in his sprite). Harpuia is natural green and white, but is an antagonist. Foreshadows him being [[AntiVillain a decent person stuck in a bad situation]]. Omega (AxCrazy) is blood red and dark blue, [[spoiler: or more accurately, [[PaletteSwap a darker version of Zero's color scheme]]]].

** In ''VideoGame/Persona5'', the Traitor, [[spoiler:Goro Akechi]], is a double subversion; they have the heroic blue aura as a GuestStarPartyMember, but after showing [[JustForPun their true colors]] at the start of the second phase of their boss battle, they switch to the usual villainous red.

[[LightIsGood White for good]] and [[DarkIsEvil black for evil]] (why do you think it's called ''TheDarkSide''?) is probably the oldest and most obvious classification. [[EverythingIsRacist This can lead to]] UnfortunateImplications. It can be more complex than this, of course, especially when you get into different cultural values and perceptions. (For example, in Asia many countries associate white with death and mourning [since bones are white], as it has been associated in Europe at various times. It can also denote {{pur|e is not good}}ity, merely because it shows dirt well.) Black can also be used as a form of ShadowArchetype which is not necessarily evil, and nowadays, dark equaling evil is subverted as often as it's used straight; see DarkIsNotEvil.

Another common pairing is red versus blue (though they are commonly used in [[GrayAndGrayMorality grey vs. gray]] engagements) where the hero is blue and the villain is red. Various reasons are given for this; this may be due to the "good" American and "evil" British colors during the US War of Independence [[note]]Although there were also British, Loyalist, Hessian, etc. units dressed in blue and some American units were dressed in red or white while their French allies wore white. Or it may have been beaten into Western culture by the Cold War; where Communist always wore some form of red, exemplified by the Soviet Union's military forces, the Red Army. Obviously, America, the opposite of the USSR takes blue. Inverted in Soviet Russia, where the brown Red Army defeats green and gray Axis forces. Also often inverted in Britain due to the traditional red British troops taking on blue American "pirates / rebels" or the blue French army.[[/note]]although this can cause UnfortunateImplications [[EvilBrit to result]]). Yet another possibility is that it derived from red's use to mean destruction and depict the devil (in-between the magma and bloodshed colors) versus the HeavenlyBlue. Alternatively, it may simply be chosen due to ChromaticArrangement. A variation on this is RedOniBlueOni, with a character that's calm being represented by blue and a more fiery character being represented by red, usually TheHero and TheLancer, or TheHero and TheRival.

** Inverted in the UsefulNotes/{{Intellivision}} version of ''VideoGame/TronDeadlyDiscs'' -- Since the people making the game were given an earlier draft of the script, Tron in that game is red while the MCP's warriors are (mostly) blue.
