** Creator/ErichVonStroheim was fond of this trope. In ''Film/{{Greed}}'', a dark drama about greed and obsession destroying three people's lives, everything made of gold is hand-colored yellow--gold nuggets, Trina's gold wedding ring, and the $5000 in gold coins that Trina wins in a lottery, which end up wrecking everything. In ''Film/TheWeddingMarch'', the ornate royal procession scene is shot in Technicolor. And originally, von Stroheim's version of ''[[Film/TheMerryWidow1924 The Merry Widow]]'' had the closing wedding scene shot in color, but unfortunately that footage is lost and surviving prints are in black and white.

* The Washington Nationals baseball team will have ads where everything is black and white except the red. This includes the players' uniforms, the seams on the ball, and random fans who happen to be wearing red hats or shirts, as well as everything in between.

* Most of ''Roleplay/RubyQuest'' is in black and white, but there are a few exceptions, such as certain buttons, blood splatters, and [[spoiler: the sunset seen as Ruby, Tom, and Jay ride the tram away from the Metal Glen facility.]]

** Many of ''Creator/FrankMiller'''s works following ''Sin City'' use this technique, but only when drawn by Frank himself. For some reason, the pages of ''ComicBook/HolyTerror'' are entirely black and white except for Natalie Stack's red shoes, her green eyes, and a flood of pink near the end.

* The video for "The Perfect Drug" by NineInchNails shows everything in blue-tinted monochrome, except for one green drink of absinthe. The ensuing [[DisneyAcidSequence trip]] switches to a green tint.
