* The '''Red Oni''' is associated with [[HotBlooded passion, wildness, and defiance]]. A Red Oni character is often more brawny than brainy, extroverted, enthusiastic, determined, and filled with a zest for life. They are also much more likely to break conventions and rules than their counterpart. Often an IdiotHero or, in more mature pieces, a BoisterousBruiser. If a Red Oni is indeed noticeably intelligent, they will still be much more wild and impetuous than the blue oni and/or with less sophisticated thoughts, feelings, or goals. Generally speaking, they're more people-oriented than goal-oriented (although both Oni's can be either). They may or may not shrug off criticism about themselves or their aims and goals, but say or do something nasty to their [[TrueCompanions closest friends]] and you've just guaranteed yourself [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge a world of pain]]. When a goal-oriented villain, the Red Oni will often be AxCrazy and psychotically willing to sacrifice any innocent lives to achieve his/her goals. A more AffablyEvil Red Oni tends to be a BloodKnight. In terms of character alignment, the Red Oni tends towards the Chaotic alignments, though this isn't always the case.

There are a lot of ways to play their interactions, so sometimes the two are both leads on an equal standing, sometimes the blue is more of TheSmartGuy or TheLancer to the red's {{Hot Blood}}ed TheLeader or TheBigGuy. The relationship can also vary wildly, as they are just as likely to be close friends as they are to being bitter rivals or enemies. One thing that is sure is that regardless of how big a cast is, when these two are in it, they will be magnetically drawn to each other.

In a show where it's relevant, differences in fighting style may be something like TechnicianVersusPerformer. For example, a red may rush headlong into combat without focus or a plan, relying on suprise or intimidation. It may be that their strategy is to close the fight quickly before their opponent can think or adapt. It's also possible that they're going to tank their opponent's defenses in order to focus on beating them down. The blue may use [[StealthExpert cunning traps, stealth and strategies]], or tend to win in elegant SingleStrokeBattle fashion, or rely on hitting a target with magical powers or projectiles from a distance instead of running up to their opponent and punching them in the face. ForceAndFinesse is a variation where red tends to rely on raw power while blue uses precision strikes. [[Analysis/RedOniBlueOni Analysis page]] has more examples of possible red-blue dynamics.

Add one person that bridges the Red Oni and Blue Oni and you got FreudianTrio, with the Red Oni becomes the Id , the Blue Oni becomes Superego, and the connecting person becomes the 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 '''Blue Oni''' is associated with serenity, control and observance of authority. A Blue Oni is more intellectual, proud, traditional, introverted, and cultured (sometimes more spiritual, although that's not guaranteed). Blue Oni personalities are often respected by others, but also likely to puzzle or confound their peers because they are difficult to read and have a mysterious quality to them. Personality subtypes include TheStoic, TheQuietOne, and AloofBigBrother. It's worth noting that while blue types ''appear'' tremendously calm and composed, sometimes, this is just the surface, and scratching that façade may show that they are, if anything, wound '''far''' too tight beneath their calm and unemotional appearance. Villainous Blue Oni tend to be willing to sacrifice anything (and often anyone) for their goals, mostly only when their villainous goals are laden with ''true purpose'' (see KnightTemplar and WellIntentionedExtremist). Being more calculating, [[ManipulativeBastard conniving]] and thorough (and if TheMole comes into play), Blue Oni tend to be more successful villains long-term than Red Oni. In terms of character alignment, the Blue Oni tends towards the Lawful alignments though this isn't always the case.
