Ego. That's the basic formula, but not always. Sometimes as the plot progresses, someone new is added and as they become the trio, this newcomer might be even more emotional than the Red Oni or is even more calm and calculating than the Blue Oni. And whoever keeps the trio together is the ego.

The name comes from traditional Japanese folklore where [[{{Youkai}} Oni]] (think troll/ogre) usually came in two flavors, a red and a blue. Over time, it's gotten popular to ascribe different qualities and personalities to the two colors. (Think the high-strung Type A personality and the easy-going Type B personality.)

While many expressions of this trope play it straight, it is also not uncommon for the Blue Oni and Red Oni to mix traits. The Red Oni, while usually the more passionate and emotion-driven, may also be the more easy-going and flexible of the two. His/her more simplistic world-view may make them at least partially [[AngstWhatAngst immune to angst]] and {{Wangst}}. Conversely, the Blue Oni, while usually stoic and thoughtful, may hid a volatile, angsty nature that may erupt if [[HeroicBSOD pushed]] [[BerserkButton too far]]. In such instances the two may switch roles, with the Red Oni becoming the reassuring, composed partner and the Blue Oni becoming a [[UnstoppableRage Whirling Dervish of Rage]]! (Compare pairings such as Red Oni Ken (cocky, arrogant, but decidedly easy-going) and Blue Oni Ryu (stoic, disciplined, but brimming with internal conflict). (However in some cases such instances are very rare to happen, or not at all thus subverting this part of the trope).
