*** [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Aurora]] is a rare example from 1959. The three good fairies weren't sure how to color code Aurora, as blue was the traditional feminine color and pink was the emerging feminine color. Note how throughout most of the movie Aurora is wearing blue, but in the Disney Princess line she is ''always'' in pink. [[MisaimedMarketing Hmmmmmm.]] Prince Phillip brings a red cape and hat to the party. Disney Princess-gear Aurora always wears pink because Cinderella always wears blue (Belle wears her yellow ballgown, and Snow White is a mixture of red, blue, and yellow). Aurora was changed over to the pink dress [[ViewersAreMorons to get guests to stop mixing her up with Cinderella]]. Whether or not this problem truly arose in the Disney parks is not certain (of course, since so few guests seem to know who Aurora even ''is''...)

* In the original ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' mini-scenario of the ''TriangleHeart3SweetSongsForever'' Lyrical fanbox, Nanoha and Chrono were rivals that became an OfficialCouple, with Nanoha having a pink motif and Chrono having a blue motif. These motifs were retained in TheAnimeOfTheGame even though the two of them weren't the OfficialCouple there anymore. Chrono's blue motif eventually led to him becoming AnIcePerson. Meanwhile, Nanoha's pink motif...well, the anime producers had ''way too much fun'' with Nanoha's pink motif by turning her into a pink PersonOfMassDestruction with a pink WaveMotionGun that fires giant pink beams that create huge pink explosions that have [[OhCrap left many people metaphorically crapping their pants]] as they stare into [[PowerGlows her pink glowy light]]. Girly pink is {{Badass}}.

* VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals has an... extreme variation on this trope amongst the USA faction: Normally, the faction's superweapon is a blue PillarOfLight being reflected off a satelite to form a KillSat system. But play as the female general from their faction, and the beam turns a lovely shade of pink.
