It can be considered an AlwaysFemale version of BringMyRedJacket. [[WomanInWhite Dressing all in white]] is often a dangerous choice for girls and women, too. Contrast LittleRedFightingHood, where the blood and danger associations are meant for her enemies.

* Theatre/RedTheRedRidingHoodMusical has the BigBadWolf reference this trope during his solo in the song "Back To The Scene Of The Crime." This song actually provides the current page quote.

* ''VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia'' starts with a FakeOutOpening in form of a horror story being told by one of the characters. It involves a little girl dressed in a red hood that the featureless protagonist aptly nicknames "Little Red Riding Hood". She wears a red hood to hide the bruises inflicted by her [[AbusiveParents abusive father]] and winds up dead after her mother commits family suicide. Before dying, she tried to get the protagonist to help her because she couldn't reach the elevator button by herself but [[BystanderSyndrome he ignored the frantic pounding on his door in favor of watching TV]]. The girl's spirit starts haunting the protagonist and eventually shows up before him to seemingly kill him in revenge... [[NoEnding before the story is interrupted by one of the characters freaking out]].

* Literature/TheDresdenFiles: Taken very literally in ''Grave Peril''. Susan shows up for the climactic [[AFeteWorseThanDeath costume party]] dressed as Little Red, complete with crimson cloak. [[spoiler: By the end of the night, she's half-turned into a Red Court vampire and spends the rest of her time in the series resisting the urge to kill a human and transform fully.]]

* ''ThePath'' is all about this trope, in both straight and inverted ways.
* [[spoiler:Princess Ovelia]] from ''FinalFantasyTactics''.

* Princess Ran runs afoul of this trope in ''TwinkleStarSprites'', where the otherwise peaceful Nonja Monja creatures attack [[BerserkButton only one thing]] -- little girls in red dresses. Fortunately [[ActionGirl she can defend herself]].

* Invoked by Paz in ''MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'', a cute young girl who wears a red raincoat during her first meeting with Snake in order to inspire his pity and sympathy, with the aim being to make [[TheMagnificentSevenSamurai his mercenary army easier for her community to hire]]. Her mentor Galvez even explains to Snake that she had been tortured, allowing the player some CostumePorn interactions where they can zoom in on her clothes and look through them to see the scars from this abuse. Even though she is deliberately putting on the Red Riding Hood act and Snake sees straight through the cheap emotional manipulation (while also allowing it to work), when we meet the villain of the game later, he has a head tattoo of a wolf. Also played with as the game uses a form of GoodColorsEvilColors to code the protagonists with bright yellow and the antagonists with red -- Paz's association with red suggests she may not be all she seems.

* ''Film/XMen''. Rogue dresses InTheHood when she meets the big bad Wolverine. Though not a red hood, the RuleOfSymbolism is obvious.

* Averted in the short animation [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=om-iANuBrR4 ''Red undead'']], Little Red Riding Hood goes into the wood, being stalked by the wolf, but '''without''' her cape. [[spoiler: She tried to lure the wolf out on purpose to revenge her grandmother who got eaten by the wolf and successfully kills it in a bloody battle with a knife, only to rip out it's guts to find her grandma's eaten corpse and start crying.]] She takes her [[spoiler: grandmothers once yellow, but now blood-soaked]] red cape and proceeds to exit the forest, [[spoiler: dragging her grandmothers corpse behind her]].

* Similar to the ''HardCandy'' example: Oasis's trademark hoodie during the "Phoenix Rising" arc of ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''.

* ''Film/HardCandy'' ends up inverting this. The red hoodie that she wears when ''she'' goes hunting was initially chosen without this trope in mind. Same as the Oasis example from ''[[Webcomic/SluggyFreelance Sluggy]]'' below.
** According to filmmakers while this trope does fit it wasn't intentional until post-production when they changed the orange shirt to red in editing.

Red is, of course, the colour of blood, and as such it carries ancient associations with sexuality (as in LadyInRed) and danger (as in RedShirt). It is also simply a very strong, eye-catching colour. Anyone wearing head-to-toe red is marked out, highly visible and memorable - not only to the audience but also to anyone who may wish to harm her. When that person is a little girl, she is bound to seem especially exposed and vulnerable.

* When little Princess Rhaenys, age 6, of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' was assassinated, she was wrapped in a red cloak, so her blood wouldn't show so much.



* The ''Series/RedRiding'' trilogy - well, it's there in the title. A little blond girl in a hooded red coat. Abducted, murdered.
* Blonde [[Series/DoctorWho Rose Tyler]] wears a red hoodie in at least one episode prior to her switch to ActionGirl. Perhaps intentional - [[spoiler:she is the Bad Wolf]]...
