%% * On an episode of ''[[Series/{{QI}}]]'' discussing male/female dynamics and oddities Stephen brought up that the PinkGirlBlueBoy trope used to be reversed, as well as specific reasons why. The panelists seem quite stunned at just the sheer oddity of the reversal to the trope.

* Sparkles in ''Toys/TheGrosseryGang'' webseries is a light blue soda can, while also being the only girl of the team. While she's a bit more rough-and-tumble and sarcastic than most girls, she has the most tact and sympathy for others out of the gang as well, acting like a big sister to Egghead, while also being the grounding force to Pizza Face's riskier ventures.

This could have started at least as far back as ancient Greece and Rome, and why the Virgin Mary is often depicted in [[HeavenlyBlue a blue robe]]. The logic was that blue symbolizes peace, serenity, kindness, and other such aspects that were considered womanly virtues. (In the Mediterranean, it was also a sign of high rank, as the [[RealLifeWritesThePlot dye/paint color had to come from indigo, woad, or lapis lazuli]] which must be imported from a great distance and was therefore quite expensive).

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', Clara Oswald, an introverted and lonely, but usually very compassionate and kind companion, is fond of wearing articles of clothing in various shades of blue. Given its sheer frequency throughout her entire run, it's probably her subconscious favourite colour. [[spoiler:Outside of the original Clara, this habit even extends to some of her time paradox spawned doubles in different eras, especially the Victorian governess one.]] Possibly a symbol of loss to, as she lost her mother in her teens and it affected her rather profoundly. She's also occassionally seen in a predominant red or green from time to time, reflecting other sides of her personality. When she wears blue, she's mostly quiet and thoughtful, green-clad Clara is an adventurer, pragmatist and tends to be crankier, and wearing red clothing often coincides with her showing a 'cheery romantic dreamer' streak.
