* 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.

* ''Film/{{Freeway}}'', a parody of Little Red Riding Hood - starring Reese Witherspoon in a red leather jacket and Kiefer Sutherland as creepy pedophile Bob Wolverton.

* 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]]...

* 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.

* Consequently, like in Schindler's List, Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel's autobiography ''Night'' depicts his youngest sister Tzipora wearing a red coat the last time Elie ever saw her (and their mother) again.
* In the TalesOfTheFiveHundredKingdoms story ''Beauty and the Werewolf'', Belle is wearing a red cloak while visiting the old woman who lives in the woods with a basket of goodies. On her way back, she is bitten by a werewolf. Given that in this series The Tradition (which forces the repeating of fairy tales) is a major part of how the world works, it was pretty obvious that this was going to happen.

Added DiffLines:

* The RPG Maker game ''The Dark Side of Red Riding Hood'' takes this UpToEleven. When staying on the path, nothing will happen, but if Little Red Riding Hood strays from the path, then she will [[spoiler: be eaten by her cannibalistic grandmother, be raped by the hunter/wolf or be sold by her mother as a slave]]. The two endings that are at least somewhat harmless are the one where [[spoiler: Red kills her grandma with an axe because her mother asked her to]] and the one where she [[spoiler: gets lost and starves in the woods]]. It is also implied that there are [[spoiler: several Little Red Riding Hoods, since both the slave owner and grandma mention how she isn't the first and certainly not the last that they will get their hands on]].
