** Also, if you compare the heroes with their future selves, who are all apparently ''{{Badass}}''. [[spoiler:It's inverted in the case of ''Sylar'', where he moved into Claire's home, calls himself Gabriel (his real name) and is much nicer than his present self. He even has a ''son'' named ''Noah''.]]

* The two main heroes of the Franchise/ArrowVerse fit this. Oliver Queen/Green Arrow is TheStoic, analytical, and reliant on his [[TheStraightAndArrowPath precision in archery]]. Barry Allen/The Flash is more emotional, idealistic, and blitzes through his enemies and life with his SuperSpeed.

** ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'' has two main heroes: Kido Shinji (Ryuki), who is [[DumbIsGood impulsive and idealistic]], and Akiyama Ren (Knight), who is [[TheStoic stoic]], [[{{Badass}} cool]], and sometimes dangerously close to JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope. Ryuki's armour is red; Knight's armour is normally black, but later in the series, he acquires a powerup that turns him blue so that [[ColorCodedCharacters the colours fit the trope]].

* ''TheInspectorLynleyMysteries'': Barbara Havers is red, Thomas Lynley is blue. However, as is this show's habit, the reality is slightly more complex: Havers is certainly more fiery and hotheaded in daily life, but she is generally the cool, collected one in a crisis, whereas Lynley is usually the more rational and pragmatic one, but tends to panic when the shit hits the fan. Also, Lynley is more likely to fly off the handle at suspects, whereas Havers is more likely to react with TranquilFury.

* A DisneyChannel movie called "Stepsister from the Planet Weird" had this for the two families: the down-to-earth Earthlings were blue while the literally air-headed (they're bubbles) and overly emotional aliens were pink/orange. Naturally, their wedding theme was purple.

* The main stars of ''Series/MythBusters'', Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. Both do the same job, but Adam does it flying by the seat of his pants, laughing and exclaiming over every explosion or test result, while Jamie coolly looks on. When one myth required them to use a remote control airplane to test the myth, co-star Grant talked about the differences in personality.
-->'''Grant:''' Adam is a very exuberant personality, so I expect him to crash the plane very quickly. Jamie is a much more controlled personality, so I suspect he's going to be able to fly it better and that he'll be our pilot in this test.
** As you can tell from that quote, Grant himself is blue. However, he and his counterparts on the Build Team, Kari and Tory, are more of a FreudianTrio than anything, with Grant as the Superego, Tory the Ego, and Kari the Id.
* {{Series/Merlin}} and Arthur with the quieter, more sensitive Merlin usually in darker, earthier colors while Arthur usually wears brighter, flashier clothing. Somewhat {{justified|Trope}} as Arthur is a prince and would wear fancier clothing.
** It should be noted that while Merlin may be quieter and more sensitive than Arthur, he fulfills plenty of the red oni qualifications on his own.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has this many times between the Doctor and his companions, but here are the notable examples
** The adventurous but grumpy First Doctor is the red to the blue of the level headed and educated Ian and Barbara
** The red of the mischievous and bumbling Second Doctor to the blue of the intellectual Zoe
** The red of the arrogant and dashing Third Doctor to the blue of the young and innocent Jo
** The red of the kooky and strange Fourth Doctor to the blue of the even smarter and cautious Romana.
** It's the other way around with the Fifth Doctor. The Fifth Doctor is the calm and collected blue to the red of the snarky Tegan.
** The red of the stubborn and melodramatic Sixth Doctor to Peri's blue.
** The Seventh Doctor and Ace constantly switched around with this, with the Seventh Doctor being more level headed than Ace, but Ace the more moral of the two when the Seventh Doctor was [[ManipulativeBastard masterminding an elaborate scheme.]]
** The red of the eccentric Eighth Doctor to the doubtful Grace.
** The trauma-ridden and impulsive Ninth Doctor to the compassionate Rose Tyler.
** Any of the Tenth Doctor's companions are blue when next to him, since we know [[MoralEventHorizon what]] [[AGodAmI happens]] when the Tenth Doctor [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E16TheWatersOfMars acts by himself.]]
** The red of the bombastic Eleventh Doctor and the feisty Amy to the blue of the more down-to-earth Rory.
** The red of the sarcastic and snarky Twelfth Doctor to the blue of the caring Clara, which was even [[LampshadedTrope lampshaded]] in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E2IntoTheDalek Into the Dalek]]". This is soon played with Series 9, with Clara becoming more red due to her reckless nature, [[spoiler: which is what eventually leads to her demise.]]

* ''Series/Grange Hill'' has several examples: Tucker Jenkins is red to Alan Humphries and Benny Green's blue. Mrs McClusky is blue to both Mr Keating's and then Mr Bronson's red. Gonch Gardner was red to Hollo's blue. Pogo Patterson was red to Duane Orpington's and Stewpot Stewart's blue. Then among the girls, Trisha Yates was red to Cathy Hargreaves' blue, Suzanne Ross was red to Claire Scott's blue and Annette Firman was red to Fay Lucas' blue. Although all three of those female blue onis did go off the rails at some point.
