** Luis Suárez, the fiery Uruguayan with a penchant for spectacular goals and a knack for being controversial, is the red oni to the blue oni of Sergio Agüero, the methodical Argentine who's a cold-blooded, clutch finisher with sound fundamentals. [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience This becomes even better when you look at the jerseys of their clubs.]] (Luis Suárez - Liverpool, Sergio Agüero - Manchester City)
** Mesut Özil and Alexis Sanchez of Arsenal. Özil is the cooler, less expressive and less flashy player, who prefers passes and assists. His cooler side leads to him being accused of not caring, just because he tends to show no real emotion or frustration when compared to the rest of his team. Alexis Sanchez, on the other hand, is the flashy, expressive, emotive winger who is not afraid to let his feelings be made known, and has caused major transfer drama as a result.

Added DiffLines:

* The two faces of the New England Patriots, Tom Brady is the red and Bill Belichick is the blue. Tom Brady is a fiery leader and oftentimes serves as TheHeart of the team, even being one of the main motivators in the late stages of the game when they are down. He is also very expressive, routinely high-fiving other players ([[https://usatthebiglead.files.wordpress.com/2013/12/tom-brady-needs-a-high-five.gif when they actually return them]]) and even [[https://media.giphy.com/media/2dto08eaL5vXO/giphy.gif outright jumping for joy when Malcom Butler made his game-winning interception against the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX]], and that's not even counting his social media activity. Bill Belichick, however, is... not. His unflappable exterior has reached memetic levels, he refuses to play the social media game his quarterback does, is often seen as a StopHavingFunGuy due to his incredible focus on winning (he once banished a player to [[ButtMonkey the Cleveland Browns]] for asking for more money, after which the Patriots went on to win the Super Bowl), and even once spent the Super Bowl Parade trying to start a "No Days Off!" chant.

** Dominick Cruz (red) vs. Team Alpha Male (blue). Fittingly, whenever a Team Alpha Male fighter would fight Cruz, they would fight in blue shorts. Though this began to reverse during the actual fight of Garbrandt-Cruz.

* University of UsefulNotes/{{Utah}} (crimson and white) and [[UsefulNotes/{{Mormonism}} Brigham Young University]] (blue and white) fit their colors well. BYU, as a church-operated school, comes across as serious and a bit aloof. Utah has taken on the role of the boisterous counterpart pretty much by default, but some fans really get into it. A lot of it is affected, though, since BYU and Utah are very similar academically (though because of enrollment caps BYU is harder to get into).

* This is fairly evident in a number of rivalries in mixed martial arts (MMA), and especially the UFC. Often one of the fighters will be more aggressive, more of a trash-talker, and more of an upstart, compared to the other's quieter, more collected, more technical approach:

* The Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers of the late '80s were an inversion. The blue-coloured Oilers were young and high-scoring, led by the likes of Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, and Jarri Kurri, while the red-coloured Flames played more of a defensive, tight-checking game.

** The very jovial, talkative, and friendly Helio Castroneves is the red oni to the much more calm, stoic, and businesslike blue oni of Scott Dixon, who beat him out for the 2013 championship. Ironically, Castroneves's normal livery is a black and white one (with the occasional red and yellow or blue and white livery depending on the event), whereas Dixon always drives a red car.

* School colors also hold true for University of Nevada, Reno (blue and silver) and University of Nevada, Las Vegas (scarlet and gray). UNR is older, more academically respected and started branding their sports as "Nevada" after UNLV became prominent, hoping to distance themselves from their rival and emphasize that they're older. UNLV is larger and has had frequent run-ins with the NCAA. And it extends to the cities as well: Vegas as a flashy party town, Reno as more sedate and humble.

Ginebra, with matching red uniforms, was known as a blue-collar team in the fashion of the Detroit Pistons "Bad Boys" of the same era, and has been known as the "team of the masses" since the mid-'80s. Star, then called Purefoods and wearing matching blue uniforms, was a team of young, good-looking, yet talented "glamour boys" and generally appealed to more upscale PBA fans.
