* In ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign'', the [[TheOldGods Unexplored-Class Materials]] are all associated with a particular colour. The Red-Eyed Lady, Wicked Green Woman and Spirit of the Fluttering Yellow Gills are more powerful than most of the rest, while the White Queen is orders of magnitude more powerful still. [[spoiler:The White Queen is a double example, as she's the same entity as the [[EldritchAbomination Black Maw]]]]. Played with in the case of the Colorless Little Girl, [[spoiler:an artificial Unexplored-Class designed specifically to combat the White Queen. The Colorless Little Girl is uniquely capable of defeating the White Queen singlehandedly, but would lose to any other Unexplored-Class]].

* In WW2 the Luftwaffe often painted parts of their fighter aircraft in bright colours, especially yellow, for easy recognition, e. g. during the Battle of Britain so that they would not be fired on by trigger-happy tail-gunners of the bombers they were escorting. These colours, e. g. on the propellor spinner, engine cowl or tailfin were also used to set apart sub-units of a ''Jagdgeschwader'' (fighter wing) or as a common mark of fighters serving in a particular theatre of war (e. g. white for North Africa). This ended up leading to the belief among Allied pilots that the Luftwaffe distingushed their pilots in WW2 by the color of their propeller spinner. Yellow-nosed aircraft, it was thought, had pilots with 30 kills or more (in actual fact, e. g. the Luftwaffe's top-scoring pilot Erich Hartmann (352 kills) had a black one, and Hans-Joachim Marseille, the top-scoring pilot against Western Allies (158) had a white one). This proved to be a danger to some German pilots after the arrival of long-ranged Allied fighters on the Western Front: American pilots, confident in their superior numbers and ability to dive out of a bad situation to escape, frequently ''picked fights'' with yellow-nosed enemy aircraft in preference to lesser ones. There is an apocryphal story that some American pilots in the Pacific theater would paint their propellers a different color before every battle so Japanese pilots would think they were facing different fighter squadrons each time, creating the illusion that the Americans had massively superior numbers.

** The caveat being that they are action games, such as CoD and Halo. In thinking games, such as MOBAs, colors like blue have the advantage due to encouraging long-term thinking, creativity, and being able to see the bigger picture.

** 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.)
