* 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.

* ''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 a decent person stuck in a bad situation. Omega (AxCrazy) is blood red and dark blue.

Added DiffLines:

* This is actively averted in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering''. Each of the five colors (white, black, blue, red and green) have equal amounts of heroes and villains.

** Even within the "good" side, there is an aspect of potential FridgeBrilliance to the blue vs. green colouring. Qui-Gon uses green, Obi-Wan uses blue, and Luke Skywalker uses blue in 'Film/'TheEmpireStrikesBack'' and green in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''; the FridgeBrilliance is in how [[spoiler:much like Qui-Gon was more trusting of Anakin than Obi-Wan was, Luke was more trusting of Vader in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' than he was in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'']].

** Inverted in the UsefulNotes/{{Intellivision}} version of ''VideoGame/TronDeadlyDiscs'' -- Tron in that game is red while the MCP's warriors are (mostly) blue.

to:

** [[WhatCouldHaveBeen In the early designs for the film, however, the colors were different.]] It would have been yellow for those allied with the Users, and light blue (which showed up as green for some reason) for the MCP and his forces, but ExecutiveMeddling forced the filmmakers to change it to the more standard "blue for good, red for bad" seen in the final film.[[note]]Though since the scenes with CLU at the beginning were already done by this time, the original colors can be seen during this part.[[/note]]
** 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.

** The [[MugglePower Equalists]], [[EldritchAbomination Vaatu]], and [[BombThrowingAnarchists the Red Lotus]] all go for the classic [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver red and black]] (despite very different ideologies to both one another and the Fire Nation that wore it in the previous series). [[TheCorruption Dark spirits]] are meanwhile invariably black or near-black highlighted with a variety of harsh neons. And the Northern Water Tribe, led by fanatical Unalaq, goes for deeper navy blues instead of the Southern Water Tribe's light tones.
** Meanwhile [[TheHero Korra]] and [[GodOfGood Raava]] are both in cyan and white, and non-corrupted spirits are typically bright but natural shades. Korra's best friends Mako and Bolin wear earthy red and green, respectively, and even the [[HeelFaceTurn reformed]] Fire Nation's tones are more warm and subdued.

Though justified in that the technology was developed by the Clans and the Inner Sphere didn't obtain it until two-thirds through the series run.
