* ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'': The Templars and the Assassin Order can be seen this way. The Templars (Red) tend to corrupt their countries governments with unfair rules and laws, many are either ambitious or tyrannical in nature stealing and abusing power that is often beyond their control. The Assassins (Blue) serve as their mortal enemy for centuries, Assassins strive to preserve true peace and keeping power in the hands of those capable of wielding it. Its also notable that Templars prefer knights and brute strength in their plans while the Assassins use stealth and help from the innocent instead.

* Inverted in the gameplay of ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', where, in the Payload and Point-Capture maps, the RED team is defending a zone, thus requiring mostly slow and durable classes like the Heavy or Engineer, and the BLU team is attacking, making them more likely to use speedy and swift classes like Scout or Spy. Played straight in the Meet the Team supplemental videos, where [=BLU=]'s calm passivity in the face of [=RED=]'s aggressive bloodlust inevitably results in the [=BLU=]'s [[BloodyHilarious getting drenched]] [[HighPressureBlood in the other team's color]] before they explode into LudicrousGibs. Also played straight in the comics, albeit in a less visceral way: Members of the [=BLU=] team tend to be coldly logical, subtly subverting their bosses plans, while the [=RED=] team members dive headlong into chaos, and are more openly defiant of their employers.
** While it usually gets them in trouble, the Blue Team's subtle planning finally helps them - [[spoiler: The BLU Engineer has ascended to become the Dragon to the Administrator and Pauling]]

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia''. Lloyd and Genis even match the colors: Lloyd is athletic, aggressive, puts all his focus into physical combat, and dresses in all-red. Genis is much more studious, much more willing to play by the rules, much calmer, puts all his focus into magical combat, and dresses in all-blue.

* ''VideoGame/RadiantHistoria'': This actually has two sets of examples. Blue Oni and main character Stocke is a [[TheStoic stoic]], rational, and [[NervesOfSteel always-collected]] spy with a lean build and [[{{Bishounen}} very pretty looks]]. Red Oni Rosche is a soldier with a big booming officer's voice, is much more emotional, outgoing, and passionate (qualities that Stocke argues makes him a much better leader) and has a [[TheBigGuy a very brawny build]]. For the other pair, Red Oni Raynie is hotblooded, outgoing, and somewhat slow on the uptake. Blue Oni Marco is a little more rational and somewhat sharper and more tactful than his counterpart. The sidequests (Raynie the Active and Marco the Calm) for unlocking some of their abilities are a play on this dynamic.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' features childhood friends and rivals Akihiko (red) and Shinjiro (blue). Akihiko is a cocky, impassioned fighter who loves the thrill of battle; in stark contrast, Shinjiro is brooding, secretive, and quiet.
** It's also arguable that icy, calculative Mitsuru, not Shinjiro, is the blue to Akihiko's red. The three are closely linked, after all.

* The portable remake of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' has managed to pull off a fairly rare ''DistaffCounterpart'' version of this by introducing the option to have a female protagonist; the male protagonist is typically a bit reserved and intellectual and is accordingly given blue hair and eyes (and a blue in-game interface); the new female option is quite a bit more outgoing and cheerful and is naturally themed red with her hair and eyes.

** [[spoiler: Flannel and Nishiki end up becoming this (and a BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine) in the ''Revelation'' third route. Both are leaders of a tribe of animal shapeshifters that can turn into a canine creature (a werewolf and kitsune, respectively). While Nishiki is a calm, hard worker with IOweYouMyLife ethics, Flannel is a carefree, energetic individual, much like a dog. Their choice of dress also shows this, with Flannel being a SharpDressedMan and Nishiki being much more casually dressed.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Ryoma and Xander are this to each other, as part of both being a {{Foil}} to the other. Ryoma is a HotBlooded, honor-driven samurai who is quick to anger, intensely emotional regarding his family and country, and once he believes the enemy has crossed the line, he will stop at ''nothing'' to utterly destroy them. Xander, by contrast, is calm, calculating and more than a little moody, preferring to use careful tactical planning over emotional, spur of the moment decisions. [[spoiler:Ironically, this ends up being flipped in ''Revelation''. The Avatar's refusal to join either Hoshido or Nohr enrages Xander so much that he becomes even ''more'' obsessed with hunting them down and murdering them for their "betrayal" than he was in ''Birthright'', while Ryoma, though deeply disappointed in the Avatar's choice, is ''much'' more willing to hear them out.]]

** Also applies to the two main characters, [[BirdsOfAFeather the Avatar and Azura]]. They're both royal [[ChildOfTwoWorld children of two worlds]] who were kidnapped at a young age and raised by the enemy nation. Because the Avatar grew up with loving siblings while Azura was mostly isolated, they ended up with different attitudes: the Avatar is openly friendly and emotional, whereas Azura is stoic and wary.
