* in ''[[{{Supermarionation}} Captain Scarlet]]'', the Spectrum organisation is this trope: its field agents are all named, dressed in, and trhemed after, colours. There is the eponymous Captain Scarlet, his adversary Captain Black, and Captains Blue, Brown, et c. The overall commander is Colonel White, and for some reason, Green only merits the lower rank of Lieutenant.

* The emotional spectrum in ''ComicBook/GreenLantern'' associates each of the colors with a particular feeling. Red is rage, orange is avarice, yellow is fear, green is willpower/courage, blue is hope, indigo is compassion, and violet is love.
** Black appropriately represents the absence of emotion and death, while white represents life (see ComicBook/BlackestNight and ComicBook/BrightestDay).

love. (Admittedly, the "violet" faction, the Star Sapphires, are more pink in practice, but that's down to retconning old characters into a new concept.) Plus Black appropriately represents the absence of emotion and death, while white White represents life (see ComicBook/BlackestNight and ComicBook/BrightestDay).



** Star Sapphires are more ''pink'' (or magenta, maybe) than violet. Because integrating them in the rainbow is actually a retcon.
* The real name of ''[[ComicBook/TheFlash Flash]]'' villain Rainbow Raider is Roy G. Bivolo, a reference to the mnemonic.

* ''Series/ResshaSentaiTokkyuger'' uses rainbows as a secondary motif (the primary one is [[CoolTrain trains]]), combining the franchise's usual [[ColorCharacter color-coding]] with light vs. darkness symbolism. The main team has the common arrangement of Red-Blue-Yellow-Green-Pink, while the SixthRanger helps complete the rainbow by being an extremely rare Orange Ranger.

The Red Ranger even becomes a Rainbow Ranger at one point as an AllYourPowersCombined EleventhHourSuperpower. A DVD special set after the series further adds a Purple Ranger to the mix.
