* In the trilogy of ''[[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk Hulk: Gray]]'', ''Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}: Yellow'', and ''ComicBook/SpiderManBlue'', these elements (the colors in the titles being one of the dominant colors of their costume at the time) are explored through the lens of each hero's earliest years. When the Hulk, the original comic book AntiHero, was a mass of confusion and rage that didn't know whether it was good or evil. When Daredevil, the Man Without Fear, was so afraid of someone losing their father like he did that he put on a costume and beat up criminals. When the jovial, wise-cracking Spider-Man was feeling lower than he ever had in his life.

* For the most part, it seems that red is good and green is bad in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series. Gryffindor House is represented by scarlet red and gold, the non-fatal combat spells normally used by the heroes (''Stupefy'' and ''Expelliarmus'') create red light, and the Weasleys all have flaming red hair. Conversely, Slytherin House is represented by emerald green and silver, the Killing Curse used pretty much only by the bad guys (''Avada Kedavra'') create green light, and two snakes employed by Voldemort (the basilisk and Nagini) are both described as being green[[note]]Neither were green in [[Film/HarryPotter the film versions]].[[/note]]. However, there is one huge dent in this pattern -- it is constantly mentioned that Harry has green eyes while Voldemort has [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes.]]
** Also, Beauxbatons school uniforms are pale blue, Durmstrang are blood red. Hogwarts basic black.
** Inverted in one of the most evil persons in the books: Dolores Umbridge - She loooves pink (and cute little kittens).

* ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' portrays this trope by ring colors. Although not Cheery, Gokudera is red. Yamamoto is Blue and is very cheery. Hibari is neutral purple, since all he wants is to battle Reborn, and is also considered gold, as Yamamoto once called him the ace of the team.

** For most of their existence, the FF have worn bright blue with black trim. From the mid-1980s to mid-1990s, though, they wore a darker shade of blue with white trim (though John Byrne apparently intended the uniforms to be black, as [[ComicBook/XMen Jean Grey]] calls the new unis black in issue 286). How dark the blue was in this era really [[DependingOnTheArtist depended on the artist/colorist]]. In ''ComicBook/HeroesReborn'' they wore two distinct shades of blue (the uniforms were slightly modified SHIELD uniforms from that world). With ''ComicBook/HeroesReturn'', the team was again wearing blue with black trim, though they went to another white-trimmed uniform for a couple of years before settling back on blue-and-black. In 2011, the team adopted white suits with black trim for a time. And after that, they wore red with black trim.

We can literally watch her transformation back as her hair and eyes gradually take their natural color again later. Later, in Season 7, when she does a strong spell but '''''does not''''' go bad from it, her eyes and hair are pure white.

* In a given game there is commonly one team wearing white, though whether this is the home or away team depends on the sport (in professional leagues the home team usually wears white in baseball and basketball, while white is the road team's color in American football and ice hockey)[[note]]Officially it's the home team's choice on what color to wear for a given game, so adherence to this convention is ultimately up to tradition. In some cases teams may decide to switch it up - American football teams in the Southern United States, such as the Miami Dolphins, sometimes wear their white jerseys for a September home game because it is ''really'' hot and humid that time of year and forcing the visiting team to wear darker-colored jerseys can tire them out faster.[[/note]]. The other team goes for black less frequently since their fans don't usually think of themselves as evil.
