* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' had the Command Track departments wear a "Wine Red" uniform. This is a departure from the original ''Series/{{Star Trek|The Original Series}}'' where the Command was Gold (actually a Lime Green that turned gold under the stage lights and film stock) and the engineering and security detail was red, hence the infamy of the {{Red Shirt}}s and it's speculated the change was to avoid that trope. Red became exclusively command track, while gold was changed to Operations/Engineering and Security, while Blue has remained the medical and scientific departments throughout the franchise. Star Trek is unique in that there is significant division between the departments in terms of responsibility, but less so in terms of rank. Blue and Gold uniformed officers can reach lieutenant commander and remain in those colors (Commander's consistently wear Red uniforms, as that means they are on command tracks), while in the first season Worf and Geordi wore red and had the comparatively low ranks of Lieutenant Junior Grade. In the second season both were promoted to full Lieutenant and wore Gold, Worf was Head of Security and Geordi Chief Engineer.

* Practitioners of martial arts such as judo or karate wear belts of various colours to denote their skill level. And, of course, the white belt is the one novices carry, a black belt symbolizes a high expertise, and the red belt is reserved for the ''instructors'' no less. It works really well in Judo, with the belts going from white to black and the red belt being reserved for people of fifth dan and above. That is, people that can do stuff you wouldn't expect in a movie. The apocryphal basis for the color-belt system lends the Law a touch of faux - TruthInTelevision-originally, a practitioner merely received A belt, period, when he began. A pristine white belt which, unlike the rest of the uniform, was never washed, so that the sweat, dirt, and what have you else would slowly make the belt progressively darker. So if you saw a guy with a black belt, it meant he'd been studying his particular style for a long time and was probably capable of kicking your ass before you even knew you were about to fight him. Sadly, this explanation isn't actually true--it was invented by a California dojo in the mid-20th century ''specifically to invoke the trope''.

* The very first {{Mook}} that you encounter in ''VideoGame/{{Descent}} 3'', known as the Gyro, shoots incredibly weak laser bolts in bursts of four and flees when outnumbered. The Gyro has a red counterpart, called the Flame Gyro, that is faster and ''much'' more aggressive, circling and attacking targets with a constant spray of napalm that does enormous damage over time as well as [[AttackAttackAttack refusing to flee even when it is outgunned]].
--> '''Gyro:''' Freeze!\\
'''Flame Gyro:''' [[CallingYourAttacks BURN]].

** In ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/Halo3ODST'', most of the color differences between Brute ranks consisted of [[TheyJustDidntCare slightly different shades]] of blue, with some gold, red, and black thrown in. Fortunately, the more important rank differences could be discerned by helmet shape alone.

* The KoreanWebtoon ''HelloHellper'' mostly takes place in the afterlife and it's SplashOfColor[=-coding=] has red common ghosts at the bottom and mysterious purple godlike beings(? we've only met one so far) at the top, with tough yellow ogres and terrifying blue GrimReaper[=s=] in between.

[[spoiler: Our hero has the ability to "take" colors: he's already got a boon of purple power from Satan and the powerful feet of a yellow-blooded ogre chief -- the fact that he was able to integrate the different colored blood was a literally one-in-a-million chance. He also has the ability to "give" colors: He smacked some red onto the first Reaper he defeated; said reaper was the son of the aforementioned ogre chief's daughter and ''[[Literature/JourneyToTheWest Sun Wukong The Monkey King]]''.]]
** There seems to be a similar thing going on in the living world in the late main character's [[TheFamilyForTheWholeFamily gang]]-- er, [[BullyHunter group of protectors]]: Their regular patch is a black dog with three giant bottom teeth (like a boar) on a red background while [[spoiler: violent, deadly "hunters" trained by an gangster to get revenge on the gang who threw him out]] use a dog with three giant fangs on a green background.

** In ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'', this is how most REQ variants of Covenant weapons and vehicles are segregated, although whether the gold or the red (or the silver, if you're talking vehicles) ones are the best tends to vary.
