Added DiffLines:

* Classic [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] wears a red costume, with a yellow belt and logo, and a white cape with gold trim. Mary Marvel's traditional costume has the same color scheme, while one of her later costumes is mostly white and gold. Captain Marvel Jr. has a costume identical to Cap's, but with the red replaced with blue and the white cape replaced with red. New 52 Shazam has the same color scheme, but his chest emblem is now mostly white and glowing, and he adds a white hood to the cape.

* ''[[WesternAnimation/ChallengeOfTheGobots The GoBots]]'' toy line tended to subvert this. The Machine Robo toys were all heroic, and their color schemes weren't changed when Tonka chose some to be [=GoBot=] villains. So, for example, Cy-Kill was red, white, blue, and gold; Cop-Tur was blue, white, and gold; and Crasher was originally white with sky-blue decals (though she got a villainous re-color for the animated series). The toyline later gave Cy-Kill a more "evil" black/gray/green coloration, while his Guardian opposite number, Leader-1, went from plain gray to playing this trope straight with a blue and white body with red and yellow stickers, though neither color change was portrayed in the cartoon.

* {{Transformers}}: Optimus Prime part of the trope image. In fact, the Autobot logo is usually red and many Autobots are primary colors, while the Decepticons have purple as a signature color and the Constructicons specifically are known for being purple and green. Having the good side in red and the bad side in purple places them in the opposites of the spectrum, so not only they're differentiated by primary and secondary colors, but also by "hot" and "cold" colors (darker blue for bad guys, light orange for good guys).

* Almost every VideoGame/FireEmblem Lord wears this color scheme too. Usually blue clothes with a yellow trim, and a red cape (at least on the inside of it). [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Marth]] kickstarted the trend, followed by [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Celice]], all four [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Elibe Lords.]] [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Ike]] sported this color scheme as the Hero of Tellius, despite not being a noble like previous heroes. Micaiah wears it as well in much sublter fashion. [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Chrom]] only wears desaturated and darker blue clothes with a yellow trim, however his is usual sword and its scabbard are is red. In addition to being the main characters, they also cause an instant game over if they die, so it's important to watch them on the map.
