* The Ranger from ''VideoGame/{{XCOM 2}}'' and the Shinobi from ''VideoGame/XCOMLongWar 2'' are the respective {{Stealth Expert}}s of their games and are equally capable of being stealthy even if wearing brightly-coloured armour.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': Party member Ann Tamaki. Wearing a candy apple red catsuit with neon pink gloves (in contrast to her teammates, who wear mostly black) might not be the best choice for someone who calls themselves a PhantomThief.

* All over the place in ''Franchise/{{Ninjago}}''. Four of the main ninjas wear bright red, green, blue and white costumes. Cole has a black ninja suit, but it's accented with flashy sliver shoulder pads. Yet they can all be pretty stealthy when the need arises. ZigZaggingTrope in one episode when Zane's white outfit is accidentally dyed pink. He complains about is being ridiculous, but he's still very stealthy wearing it and it actually helps him camouflage against a pink poster in the climax of the episode

*''WesternAnimation/{{Mixels}}'' has the Nindjas, the superhero team of Mixopolis who act as standard Ninjas. Despite their stealth, they're colored in bright black and orange for their tribe coloration.

** It should also be noted that considering how an average person dresses in the Naruto-verse, an orange jumpsuit is infinitely better for blending into a crowd than a black stagehand uniform.

It may well be that the standard ninja strategy is to just look like normal civilians once their take their headbands off.

* Despite his bright orange outfit, Manga/{{Naruto}} has proven himself capable of great stealth, when he actually chooses to act stealthily. A couple of [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation different takes on Naruto himself]] give his reasons as wearing his "Safety Orange" outfit as either stealth training or it was the only thing he could get to wear.

Added DiffLines:

** Fluttershy, when sneaking out of the Trixie-controlled Ponyville in ''Magic Duel''. Ponyville is surrounded by a force field that lets Trixie know when anyone tries to get through, and her stealth suit includes ''bright blue bunny ears''. She gets out by hiding in a log and letting her [[FriendToAllLivingThings beaver friends]] carry it out of town, counting on Trixie to consider them unimportant and let them through the force field.

These ninja don't quite get 'camouflage means colors that blend in'. They wear bright, obvious outfits, and common sense dictates that they shouldn't be stealthy ''at all''. And yet... they are. They rarely use any magical powers, AppliedPhlebotinium, or other fiction-specific cheats. They're just that good, and are skilled enough that sneaking around that however [[HighlyVisibleNinja highly visible]] they might ''appear'' to be, in practice they're extremely hard to spot and harder to catch.

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.

They're so good they can foil electronic devices and some people with better-than-human abilities. This ability is rarely one that comes from their superpowers, nor from any manner of [[AppliedPhlebotinum onboard]] [[GreenLanternRing gimmickry]]. It's either a natural talent or a skill they have trained into themselves through [[TrainingFromHell years of devoted and rigorous practice]].
