* ''Series/WakingTheDead'': [[spoiler:"Skin" with some red parts for a tattooing scene, where a guy deliberately infects four neo-Nazis with HIV.]]
** Also from some episodes with FlashBack scenes during WorldWarTwo.
* In an episode of ''Series/{{Monk}}'', Stottlemeyer's case-solving (which is normally black and white) is showing purple napkins, which were at both places.
* In the short-lived series ''Series/JohnDoe'', the protagonist is colorblind, so the things shown from his point of view are shown in black and white. However, in the pilot, when he sees the news about a missing girl, her face shows color and Doe is convinced the girl is related to him somehow. She wasn't, but every other time the "warning colors" appeared during the series, they were things related to him (like the woman in the green scarf, or the [[BigBad Phoenix]] statue).
* ''Series/{{VR5}}'' played all sorts of games with color during the VR sequences. Typically, unimportant objects were desaturated, while important ones were supersaturated.
* ''Hi Honey, I'm Home!'' was a reversal of TrappedInTVLand featuring the Neilsons, a family from a [[TheFifties 50's]] sitcom that has been canceled. They are relocated to the [[RealLife Real World]], in a typical 90's suburb. [[ColdSleepColdFuture When overwhelmed by the complexities of the world in which they now live]], they seek comfort by using a device known as a [[AppliedPhlebotinum Turnerizer]], which causes themselves and their home environment to [[GoodOldWays revert to monochrome]]. The outside world (as seen through open doors, etc.), as well as anyone ''from'' the outside world, are unaffected.
* Used extensively in the TV version of ''Series/HalfMoonInvestigations'' for scenes showing how the Crime Of The Week was actually commited (black-and-white otherwise), most notably with spot colour on the pink clothes worn by the Pinks and a yellow jacket that was a Clue. Never two different colours in the same scene, though.



* ColdCase episode Forever Blue does this. All of the flashbacks to the time the murder took place are set in black and white outside of the red colour on the police car and the white/yellow glow from certain lighting (candles in the church and a lamp)
* In ''Series/OnceUponATime'', Dr. Frankenstein's world is in black and white, but the visiting Rumplestiltskin (and the gold he gives Frankenstein) are in color.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' has a fair share of B&W segments, in all of which the Warners still retain their red noses. Including one literal use of this trope: a documentary style interview with an old star about the Warners back in the day has her mention that the Warners would go around "painting the town red, literally". Cut to a shot of them splashing red paint all over a black and white city.

* ''VideoGame/ShadowOfDestiny'' revolves around the use of time travel to change your fate-- each era you travel to has a different color tone. The modern day is in bright, normal colors, slightly older is a bit off, the turn of the century is black and white, and the 16th century is sepia tone. Oddly enough, your character ''doesn't'' change color when he travels, and stands out against the background.

What makes it even stranger is when two important characters from the 16th century era are brought over to the present time, their character models suddenly have normal colors.
