* Dilandau's [[HumongousMecha guymelef]] in ''VisionOfEscaflowne'' only differs from the mooks' in that his is red, while theirs are purple. Similarly, his armour is red, while his subordinates' are blue.

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI'', almost all of Link's color-coded powerups were better when red (the esception was the boomerang, whose strongest variant is blue). In a twist, the ''monsters'' would always be weaker when red. All in all, though, red is better for Link. This varies more in later games.

* Played with in the post-end bonus chapter of VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou. The characters form a Sentai FiveManBand. The leader is Red, Neku is first Black-n-Blue but later "demoted" to just Blue so someone else can be Black ([[spoiler:Black is TheMole, by the way]]), and Joshua first wants to be Pink, but then says he should actually be Gold and later gets "upgraded" to [[AmbiguouslyGay Rainbow]]. (No, really.)

Added DiffLines:

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', most enemy types are colour-coded based on how tough they are. In order of weakest to strongest: red → blue → black → silver.

Related to ColourCodedForYourConvenience, ChromaticArrangement, PowerGlows and ColorCodedItemTiers. For tropes concerning specific colors being better, see RedOnesGoFaster, RedIsHeroic and PrimaryColorChampion, GoldenSuperMode, PurpleIsPowerful, EmeraldPower, GoldColoredSuperiority and GoldAndWhiteAreDivine. For when colors are worse, see RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver, WhiteShirtOfDeath, and potentially RedShirt.

* ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' even had redder things being better, in this case, not a mecha, but a police cruiser. On the website, it was stated that the red one was much faster than the standard.
--> "Yeah...he took the red one."

* In ''StarWars'', Red Squadron (the survivors of which later became [[ComicBook/XWingSeries Rogue Squadron]], keeping the red coloring--notably, their counterpart, Renegade Squadron, didn't have red and didn't last) was considered the best starfighter squadron.

* In the opening of ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'', Stitch escapes from his confines and steals one of the police cruisers--specifically, as an observer notes with [[OhCrap more than a hint of concern]], "the red one." [[AllThereInTheManual Secondary material]], possibly that month's issue of ''Disney Adventures Magazine'', explained that the red one was the fastest, hence while the officers chasing him in the other pods couldn't catch him.
** Downplayed in the movie proper; they didn't catch him not because he ran away in the fastest vehicle, but because [[AttackAttackRetreatRetreat he charged at them and they nearly shot him down, prompting him to panic and engage the standard-issue hyperdrive.]]
** The same material mentioned that it was very lucky that this was the case, because Stitch only took the red one because [[RuleOfCool he thought it looked cool]].

* Black clothes (furniture, houses...) are the sign of a truly superior pirate in ''PuzzlePirates''. Why? Because black ink costs a ''fortune'' on the in-game market, so only an extremely talented pirate would be able to pillage up enough gold to waste that much on decorating. Of course, some consider black to be pretentious and showy. These people cannot afford it.
