* 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

* The "Stalker" Character Type in ''[[VideoGame/CityOfHeroes City of Villains]]'' has such high stealth that even ''allies'' aren't necessarily sure the character is there, regardless of what kind of ridiculous costume combo a player can come up with. There's at least one mission where they turn their heads in confusion and ask, "Is that you [Name of Character]?"

* Pretty much every "ninja" in ''Franchise/GIJoe'' other than Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, and Firefly. Of course, even they got some odd repaints. And Snake Eyes was actually purple in the cartoon. However the winners are the Cobra ninjas -- the Night Creepers (after the new toys changed their appearance). Before they were dressed in dull maroon and purple with ninja masks and visors, relatively loud for their job. But after the movie, when the series relaunched in 1993, they came back sporting bright purple armor, with neon blue helmets and gloves. And while they were mooks (even Night Creeper Leader couldn't square off very well against any other named character) they were known for being able to sneak into highly secured areas.

* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': [[http://garada.net/mediashare/o5-6e3kjgy0boqeow3l7uukwa5i2kl1s0-pre.jpg Blazas S1 and S2]], two humanoid, blue-and-yellow MechaMooks were capable to infiltrate stealthily into the HomeBase and planting two bombs without being unseen.

* We can probably add Quill from ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'' to the folder. [[http://missmab.com/Comics/Vol_1258.php She's the 8-foot tall giraffe towering over the cast]], and a combat teacher at SAIA (that one is her first appearance, though she was already mentioned in supplementary files). [[http://missmab.com/Comics/Vol_1259.php This is her second]]

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.

Contrast with HighlyVisibleNinja, who is quickly noticed, often Lampshaded, and subsequently attacked.

* 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.
