* America and Vietnam in ''UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar'' may explain a lot. Paying a '''very''' hefty price for attacking a land they barely knew, Red Oni, America lost the conflict purely from lack of knowledge of the land and jumping into battle against very cunning opposition. Blue Oni, Vietnam may only have a small country but are fiercely deceptive, committed and proved to give even bigger countries a black-eye through Guerrilla Warfare.(However many argue that America pulled out by political means but still lost the conflict that fact is solid for sure).

** Planes and Helicopters are a good example of this trope too. Though faster, planes can only fly in one direction at a time making them a lot harder to control than Helicopters. Helicopters may be slower than planes but their versatility and steadiness in the sky make them a worthy rival in combat.

* UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt and UsefulNotes/WoodrowWilson, the two famous Progressive-era Presidents. They aren't color-coded, but they fit the personalities well and the colors associated with their modern day parties.
** Theodore Roosevelt is also the RedOni towards his Secretary of War and Presidential successor UsefulNotes/WilliamHowardTaft, who was definitely the BlueOni. The boisterous TR was also the [[SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan Manly Man]] to Taft's SensitiveGuy (that's right, folks, TR was ''such'' a Manly Man that he was more of a RedOni than his own Secretary of War!). TR endorsed Taft to succeed him in the 1908 election, but soon grew impatient and dissatisfied with the Taft administration and ended up running against him, first in the GOP primaries, and then running with a brand new party of his own creation when he lost the primaries.

** As with the US Congress above, the People's Assemblies provided the Red to the Senate's Blue, serving more or less the same roles (for obvious reasons, Rome having invented separation of powers). Also invoked by the offices of the Consuls (basically two simultaneous Presidents): each month one would rule directly, and the other would be available for appeals and to veto the first's decisions in case they were too rash.

** Also among the Allied Forces. America was the very late, Heroic, and dangerously overpowered Red Oni (responsible for turning Japan into a Blue Oni), while England was the enduring, rational and fought most of the war Blue Oni. France fell in the middle.
* [[FourTemperamentEnsemble The four temperaments]] have this trope down too. Cholerics and Sanguines are described to be Red Onis while Melancholics and Phlegmatics play the Blue.
** According to some people, they aren't only like this in terms of behavior, but also their primary motives. The Melancholics want perfection. The Phlegmatics want peace and to be able to relax. The Cholerics want power and control. While the Sanguines want just some fun.

* In the past during the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, of the two major communist powers the USSR was the red (active player in the UsefulNotes/ColdWar and the worldwide spread of communist ideology) while China was the blue (more inwardly-focused on building China and, as they have been for much of history, aloof to global politics). Now, arguably, the roles are reversing: Russia (no longer communist) is stagnating demographically and playing mostly rearguard militarily (blue) while China ("communist" in name only) is becoming more dynamic and assertive economically and militarily (red).
** However, in an economical sense, Russia's foreign policies idealistically focus very much on its direct neighbours and traditional Soviet brethren (Ukraine, Belarus, Serbia, Azerbaijan, etc) and minor, obscure 'EnemyMine' allies in the theatre (like Syria and Iran), while China, in a extraordinary fit of {{Realpolitik}}, is expanding on a global scale, including into North America and Europe (its former ideological enemies' turf) as well venturing into new and relatively untapped environments like ''Africa''.

* Bellatrix (a large blue giant star) and Betelgeuse (a red supergiant), both located in the "shoulder" parts of the constellation Orion, opposite each other. Bellatrix is a very hot star, while Betelgeuse is a relatively cool one. Both are nearing the end of their stellar lifespans, and both are likely to go out in a supernova. Bellatrix will most likely become a magnetar or a black hole, and Betelgeuse will most likely become a pulsar or neutron star. This is because Bellatrix is more massive than Betelgeuse.
