* 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).

** Conor McGregor (red) vs. Nate Diaz (blue)
*** Though interestingly, in most other rivalries it is the Diaz brother who is the red, e.g. Nick Diaz (red) vs. Georges St. Pierre (blue)
** Chael Sonnen is pretty much always the red to his opponent's blue.

** 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.

* In golf, Arnold Palmer and later Lee Trevino (both red) to UsefulNotes/JackNicklaus (blue).(blue).
* 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.

* Brazil had in their female basketball [[http://www.hoophall.com/hall-of-famers/tag/hortencia-de-fatima-marcari Hortência]] (Red) and [[http://www.wbhof.com/Goncalves.html Paula]] (Blue), who had sort of a rivalry (they noted that every tournament ended with a final between their teams) but then turned into a FriendlyRivalry in the national team, that even beat the US Team in the 1994 World Championship - two years before losing to them in the UsefulNotes/OlympicGames final, but the silver medal was the first for Brazilian basketball in over 30 years!

* 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.

* In the Philippine Basketball Association, Barangay Ginebra (red) and Star (blue), especially when their rivalry was just heating up in the late '80s-early '90s. 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.

* Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry (Red and blue respectively) coached one of the greatest games in UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball history against each other, the 1967 Championship game. Lombardi was described as a very impassioned, [[HotBlooded hot-blooded]] coach who would celebrate every success and and mourn every setback with equal gusto, whereas Landry was considered [[TheStoic a very calm and stoic coach]]. Ultimately, Lombardi's Packers beat Landry's Cowboys 21-17. They also played the same red/blue roles when together as assistants for the NY Giants - Lombardi coaching the offense and Landry coaching the defense.

* Karl Malone was the blue (blue-collar work-ethic, more reserved demeanor) to Charles Barkley's red oni (party animal, loud, very outspoken).
** Among the Utah Jazz, though, Malone was red (earthy Southerner) and John Stockton (serious Pacific Northwesterner) was blue.

* The two [[UsefulNotes/NationalFootballLeague NFL]] teams in the [[BigApplesauce NYC]] area: The Giants tend to be the Blue Oni (reserved, hard-working players in a clear-cut meritocracy where production on the field is all that matters) to the Jets' Red Oni (even though the Jets actually wear green, and the Giants have more red in their color scheme than the Jets do), who tend to have [[LargeHam a lot of bluster]].
** This came to a head in 2011 when both teams faced each other on Christmas Eve: the Jets talked a lot of trash before the game, even covering up the Giants' mural of previous Super Bowl championships (both teams share the stadium, but as the designated "home" team, the Jets had control over the stadium itself). The Giants didn't respond much to this... at least in the media. On the other hand, they [[CurbStompBattle completely destroyed]] the Jets, ending their playoff hopes and starting the Giants on a journey to their fourth Super Bowl title.

** The Seattle Seahawks are known for 2 players. On one hand you have the brash, outspoken, hype-machine that is cornerback Richard Sherman. On the other hand you have the calm, cool and collected quarterback known as Russell Wilson.
