* Discussed in WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick's [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thedudette/nostalgia-chick/16616-the-smurfette-principle analysis]] of the [[TransformersGeneration1 original ''Transformers'' cartoon]], referring to both {{A|ction Girl}}rcee and [[LadyOfWar Elita One]]. Elita One was the DistaffCounterpart of Optimus Prime, and so (leader/girl) pink to his (leader) red and (boy) blue coloring. Elita One's AmazonBrigade otherwise had nothing with the trope, her soldiers appearing in all kinds of colours. Arcee, being [[TheSmurfettePrinciple the one girl]] starting the third season, was pink, and so was her (intended) love interest Hot Rod in a magenta shade ("aging" to red when he became Rodimus Prime). From there, the trope gets interesting in that pink is a noticeable colour choice among the Autobot females, but also among the Decepticon males (though not much in the cartoon because that ended long before the toyline did). [[BigEater Hun-Grrr]], [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Misfire]], the {{Sea| Monster}}cons, [[BigEater Skullcruncher]], Spinister, Fangry, Gaihawk, Barricade, Roller Force, and Horri-Bull, among others, all sport a good level of pink. Blue is more equally divided between the factions.

If there are TwoGirlsToATeam and one is represented by pink, the other girl will usually be represented by [[GracefulLadiesLikePurple purple]]. A purple girl can be a {{goth}}, {{tomboy}}, or ProperLady, while the pink girl is usually TheChick and/or a GenkiGirl. Purple has a variety of associations, not limited to PurpleIsPowerful and GracefulLadiesLikePurple - it's indicative of nobility and, by extension, nobility of character.

What's [[NewerThanTheyThink funny]] is that [[http://hueconsulting.blogspot.com/2007/03/why-is-blue-for-boys-and-pink-for-girls.html this is actually]] [[NewerThanTheyTjink a 20th century development.]] In fact, in some cultures, [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19780_5-gender-stereotypes-that-used-to-be-exact-opposite.html it used to be the exact opposite]]: pink was associated with baby boys, because it's derived from red, which is considered a good masculine color (in some countries, it still is). Blue used to be feminine (and TrueBlueFemininity often still applies), as it was associated with the Virgin Mary.[[note]]In fact, for a time it was considered bad parenting to differentiate between genders until a few years after birth; that's why in some classic paintings you'll see boys in dresses.[[/note]]

** The artists debated long and hard on what color {{Disney/SnowWhite|AndtheSevenDwarfs}} should be dressed in, even testing out the (at the time) unusual idea to dress her in all pink, but in the end, they went with the easy-on-the-eyes blue bodice. Her prince, while also wearing blue(even more compare to Snow White), of course brought the red cape.
