* ''Webcomic/AntiBunny'' Most of the art is black and white with certain eye colors standing out, as well as the red at the tip of a cigarette. Very rarely there are moments of full color that stand out to symbolize someone rising above the oppressive gray of the world around them.

[[folder:Web Animation]] * ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'': ** Animation "Sickly Sam's Big Outing", presented in "a color!" (pale pink) ** Inverted in "20X6 vs. 1936" where The Homestar Runner is still gray in Stinkoman's otherwise completely colorful world. * ''WebAnimation/MadnessCombat'' started as monochrome with three important exceptions: Jebus's yellow halo, the green skin of the zombies, and [[{{gorn}} blood. Lots of blood]]. In later episodes, red also serves as the AlienSky, and more yellow was added for the ATP units' AlienBlood. * The ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'' episode ''Without A Hitch'' is in monochrome save for red and pink, for blood and organs, and yellowish-green, for [[AxCrazy Fliqpy's]] eyes.

*** The 2004 movie does this also. While the present-day scenes are sepia-toned, in the final scene when Raoul finds the Phantom's rose on Christine's grave shows the rose in red.

if it's symbolic use of color within a work that is already in color, it is Color Motif. To be Splash Of Color the example has to be in a work that is mostly black-and-white.
** In ''Film/TheRedKimono'', red is associated with prostitution and sin. Hence the eponymous red kimono that the unfortunate protagonist wears when entertaining johns is hand-colored red. Additionally, the streetlights in the RedLightDistrict are also [[LiteralMetaphor hand-tinted red]].

* Person-specific example: In ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'' Scrooge dresses entirely in monotone. When he goes out at the end of the film he puts on a red scarf given to him by Beaker, showing his changed personality.

* Likewise for 1948's Film/PortraitOfJennie.

* Likewise for 1948's Film/PortraitOfJennie.''Film/PortraitOfJennie''.

* A slightly subtler version of this is done in ''Film/TheSixthSense'' which, while a color film very carefully and deliberately avoids using the color red anywhere except for certain symbolic objects. The set designers created custom coca-cola signs and stop signs done in brown to make sute that the red was visually striking and important.

* Used extensively in the TV version of 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.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' in which Timmy wishes everything is the same turns everything gray and blobby, leading to Cosmo and Wanda being unable to find Timmy. However, since before the grayification, [[LethalChef Timmy's mom]] tried to make a pink souffle and it [[EndangeredSouffle collapsed and turned gray]], blob-Mom's souffle collapses and turns pink, allowing Timmy to make his signature pink hat and unwish the wish. ** In another episode Wanda disappears and Timmy wishes everything was like a black-and-white noir film, but Cosmo missed a corner of one room. * ''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. * The Disney short ''WesternAnimation/{{Paperman}}'' (released with the feature ''Film/WreckItRalph'') is in B&W, except for the pretty girl's lipstick (and the imprint it leaves on a paper), which is in red.
