For ComicBooks, the trope is {{justified|Trope}} in that until about 25-30 years ago, the process used to print comics was only a four color process. The AnimationAgeGhetto may also have some culpability here because bright colors attract the attention of children.

* If this trope applies in the [[Franchise/SpiderMan comic book franchise]], any animated version of WesternAnimation/SpiderMan will feature it, too. Not that he doesn't get [[HighlyVisibleNinja quickly noticed, lampshaded, and subsequently attacked]] sometimes.

Added DiffLines:

* Ezio from ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed''. While the white and red hooded Assassin's robe allowed Altair to blend in with monk and scholar uniform during the Crusades, it makes much less sense in Renaissance Italy where it was the exact opposite of Renaissance era fashion (people favored big fancy hats, baggy coats and trousers, and dark "royal" colors). Plus, Ezio would walk around Templar controlled cities wearing a giant Assassin insignia on this sash. It's surprising that the Templars didn't just put a hit on the guy wearing the Assassin uniform.
** Later protagonists would tone down the colors, and replace the robe with a large coat though the conspicuous hood remains.

Added DiffLines:

** Despite her technicolor tail not being covered up by her SpyCatsuit, Rainbow Dash neatly managed to sneak her way into the hospital so she could finish reading a Daring Do book. Reading under the bed and suddenly rising, which disturbed the patient, took her out of technicolor territory and firmly into {{highly visible|ninja}} territory.

A Technicolor Ninja is a character, most frequently some manner of [[{{Superhero}} costumed adventurer]], who is ''really'' stealthy. Not just BadAss; not just a {{Ninja}}, not just someone skilled in the StealthHiBye, but so very, incredibly, impossibly, unbelievably stealthy and sneaky that neither {{Muggles}} nor {{Mooks}} will spot this stealthy individual sneaking around in their [[ChromaticArrangement garishly colored costume]]. Until it's too late.

Ninjas whose costumes are black or other dark colors but can sneak around unseen in civilian clothing also fit this trope. Unlike the HighlyVisibleNinja, they don't necessarily travel in packs of 20. They ''don't'' yell "kiai" or "Hyaaaqaaa", nor do they twirl their weapons and pose at great distances from the enemy unless they have a weapon or superpower that makes it [[RuleOfCool worth it to do so]]. They don't tend to worry about the ConservationOfNinjutsu, either; alone or in pairs, these ninjas are good enough to take out lesser ninja without wrinkling that costume. And if they do get spotted? Well, too bad for the spotter.

* Odd as it may sound, this trope applies to Pinkie Pie from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Normally she's pretty overt, but has been known to be incredibly stealthy when the mood takes her. Also, she can apparently move through mirrors.
