This trope was started by IsaacNewton, who really wanted there to be exactly seven colors to match the number of musical notes, the number of planets ([[ScienceMarchesOn then]]) known to be in our solar system, and days of the week. Isaac was wrong about this one, but since he was such a famous scientist, the belief that the visible light spectrum could be separated into exactly seven parts was widely held for a long time. This gave rise to the popular mnemonic "Roy G. Biv", a person's name constructed from the first letter of each color in order. Another mnemonic, more popular in Britain, is "[[UsefulNotes/WarsOfTheRoses Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain]]".

* The popular super hero cartoon ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' had a character with seriously repressed emotions (necessary because her powers stem from them and require tight control) named Raven. In "Nevermore", where Beast Boy and Cyborg use a mirror to step inside of her mind, we see Raven's true colors... Literally! Each side of her personality (even the parts she tries to hide normally) appears as an image of her but characterized by a different color. Although it is not ''just'' the seven colors of the rainbow, it does make sure to include them. Even the original Raven's cloak is an indigo!
