This trope tends to come in two flavors: either the palace of the King or wealthy man will be decorated with red carpet, or a literal red carpet will be rolled out to mark his/her arrival at some event. The chance of seeing an actual red carpet being rolled out (rather than already being set on the floor when the scene begins) by servants or attendants is increased if watching an animated work. That way it is easier to show a red carpet being rolled out the exact moment the [=VIP=] sets his foot on the ground.

* The earliest known reference in history is from a Greek play titled ''Agamemnon''. A red carpet is rolled out for the returning hero, but he is apprehensive because only the gods deserve such honor.

This is also a luxury trope that has survived many long centuries and can be seen both in works set in older time periods and the modern day. The earliest known reference to this attention-drawing symbol is from an [[OlderThanDirt Ancient Greek play]].

What's the best way to indicate that an aristocrat or other person of wealth has arrived at an engagement? By rolling out the red carpet, of course! Making an entrance by walking on red carpet is a symbol of fame, luxury, or other importance and immediately identifies a person using it as someone important. Alternatively, it may be used in a PrinceAndPauper story to show the Pauper is now being considered a man of upper-class stature after the switch has been made.
