* One of the more {{egregious}} examples was when black kryptonite created an evil version of {{Supergirl}} -- who popped into existence wearing a [[PaintItBlack black version of the Supergirl costume]].
* The long-time [[RealMenWearPink pink chestplate and pink striped pants]] of Gambit from the ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' are surely only there to fuck with our heads.

* Reversed in the ''SwordOfTruth'' Series, where the villain of the first book wear pure white, and the protagonist wears black since the fourth book. Oh, and one woman only wore black because of a subconscious desire to ''escape'' evil.

** ''TheElenium'' does avert black armor = evil with the Pandion Knights, however, who are on the side of good, even if the main protagonist tends toward {{Anti Hero}}ism at times. The CorruptChurch still wears red, of course.

* Inverted in Creator/MikhailAkhmanov's novel ''[[ArrivalsFromTheDark The Faraway Saikat]]'' with the Kni'lina, a race of bald HumanAliens whose color-coding system (among many other things) is different from that of the humans. In the past, their homeworld of Yezdan only had one moon. A large passing asteroid was snatched up by Yezdan and turned into the second moon, with the tides and earthquakes causing widespread devastation for the Kni'lina. Since then, the Kni'lina consider green to be a warning/danger color, thanks to their second moon having a greenish hue. In contrast, red is the morning color (i.e. good). Hence, on all their consoles, if all indicators are red, then all is well. Once they start turning green, that's when you have to worry.

** Even as far back as UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne or earlier, the Second Reich preferred uniforms with darker colors and the iconic, mean-looking ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pickelhaube pickelhaube]]'' - which was a huge boon to Allied propagandists in WWI who wanted to paint the conflict as a clash of Good Versus Those Evil Huns. Oh, and their flag was also red, white and black - in fact, Hitler deliberately copied those colours for the Nazi flag.

* Inverted in ''Film/{{Ladyhawke}}'', where Captain Navarre dresses like a stereotypical villain, wearing all black with a flowing cape lined in red (he's even {{blond|GuysAreEvil}}), and yet is a noble hero. Meanwhile, TheDragon wears primarily white and gold, and the BigBad is a SinisterMinister wearing all white.

* Color-coding is employed in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' to highlight the parallels and contrasts between Squall and Seifer: Squall, a GoodIsNotNice AntiHero, wears mostly black and has dark hair, while his RivalTurnedEvil Seifer, who has aspirations toward knighthood, is {{blond|GuysAreEvil}} and wears a white BadassLongcoat.

*** Stormtroopers: White armor over black under-clothing (ostensibly the space cops/good guys but actually evil underneath)

to:

*** Stormtroopers: White armor over black under-clothing (ostensibly the space cops/good guys but actually evil underneath)underneath). This coloring is even more notable with the Clone Army. Though the initially appear good, they are eventually revealed to be evil and kill the Jedi.



** In a mild subversion, the most numerous bad guys, the Imperial stormtroopers and clone warriors are dressed in white armour.

Added DiffLines:

*On ''WesternAnimation/{{Steven Universe}}'', the heroic Crystal Gems were led by Rose Quartz, who was light pink. Her son Steven inherited her gem. Pearl is extremely white-pale, Garnet [[spoiler:as a fusion]] is light reddish purple [[spoiler:, a combination of Ruby's red and Sapphire's blue]], and Amethyst is a light purple. Lion is pink, and Connie's glasses are red [[spoiler: before she stops wearing them]]. Most of the enemy gems have been green-yellow or blue in color.
**Jasper, the Centipeetle, and the Desert Glass all are yellow or green in hue.
**The Drill Parasites, [[spoiler:the Invisible Monster's]] gemstone, the Light House gem, and Malachite are all blue.
**[[spoiler:This is because Blue Diamond and Yellow Diamond have been set up as part of the show's Evil Empire Hierarchy, and naturally those who share their coloration would be enemies.]]
**Played with concerning Peridot and Lapis Lazuli. Both are gems sharing colors with the Big Bads, and both are antagonistic towards the heroes. [[spoiler:However, in subsequent episodes, they are made to seem more sympathetic to the heroes cause, with Peridot even joining the Crystal Gems.]]
**Orange and Black also seem more associated with adversaries. For Orange: The not-really-Red Eye, the Sea Worm Monster, the gemstone Garnet is seen returning with in the episode Garnet's Universe, and the Giant Crab the Crystal Gems battle in Rising Tides/Crashing Skies. For Black: The Smoke Creature from Together Breakfast, the Giant Bird defeated by Opal, the Injectors at the Kindergarten, and of course The Slinker.

* '''Grey''' - soul-less, ego-extinct, card-carrying sociopathic monsters. Also popular for {{Mooks}}. [[note]] in Creator/Harry Harrison's work, the Grey Men are a race of cold emotionless mind-manipulators, all humanity and feeling having drained out of them. [[/note]]

* Originally, the term "BlackKnight" referred to men who, for some reason or another, removed their tabards and placed thick dark furs over their shields to hide their heraldry, so as to disguise themselves. Needless to say, a lot of these weren't nice men, and the term started to carry negative connotations.
