But they're hard to draw. The colors in a rainbow vary continuously, not in discrete stripes. Fortunately, it's commonly held that [[RainbowMotif rainbows have seven colors]], so seven stripes are often considered "enough". However, a number of reasons - simplistic art style, limited palette, low graphics resolution - mean that it's not always practical to include even that many.

* A common issue on toys since omitting colors means it's decals are cheaper to print. However a number of educational toys are starting to teach only 6 colors for whatever reason, with indigo of course being the casualty.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'': As can be easily guessed from its title, this movie makes heavy use of the RainbowMotif. Sometimes it's just with six colors, like the equalizer display in front of DJ Pon-3's transformed car.
