* ''VideoGame/ClockTower 2: The Struggle Within'' had its {{split personality}} deuteragonists Alyssa (Blue) and Bates (Red, despite glowing a blue-ish purple). Alyssa, while [[ActionGirl not completely defenseless]], is reliant more on evasion and use of the environment, as well as generally being the more sensible, meek, and sociable side. Bates, meanwhile, is an {{AxCrazy}} sadist who is both arrogant and quick to violence; he prefers using guns and direct assaults, and is responsible for more than a few bad endings where his [[MuggingTheMonster taunting]] and overconfidence [[TooStupidToLive gets the two killed]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'': According to the [[http://kingfeatures.com/licensing/licensed-brands/cuphead/ King Features licensing page]], Cuphead is the hot-blooded red oni and Mugman is the calculated blue oni. While both of them have a rebellious streak, Mugman does try to stop Cuphead when he gets too overconfident betting against the Devil.

** Then there are Sonic and Knuckles, a rather curious example. Originally, the fun and outgoing Sonic was the Red Oni to the serious and stoic Knuckles' Blue Oni, just like with Sonic and Shadow. After Shadow's introduction, however, Knuckles's character was altered, his calm and collected personality getting replaced with a more HotBlooded and boisterous nature, to the point he became the Red Oni to Sonic's Blue Oni, possibly to distinguish him from Shadow and prevent redundancy (as both Knuckles and Shadow are Sonic's rivals).

** Eggman and Eggman Nega are also interesting in that they show the respective onis' stereotypical reactions to being pushed over the edge. Eggman may be wrathful, but he rarely tries to outright kill his opponents, especially in the gaming and ''Sonic X'' continuities, and never attempts to destroy the Earth, as his ultimate goal is empire. He also is an AffablyVillain, showing respect towards his nemesis Sonic and fondly remembering his late grandfather. Eggman Nega, while calm on the surface, is implied to have an extremely tortured interior, thanks to the ridicule that people have heaped upon his family. Although Eggman Nega's goal is nominally domination, he will very easily switch to the complete destruction of the world, most often at the first signs of complications in his plans, as ''Sonic Rush Adventure'' demonstrates.

** [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]] can do this with Luigi, [[Franchise/MegaMan Mega Man]], or [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]], being the Red for the former two (visible with his red cap and Luigi's green cap and Mega Man's blue suit, the latter who is practically emotionless in this game). However, Mario and Sonic are an extremely famous rivalry, representative of The Red VS The Blue, but ironically, Mario corresponds more as the Blue and Sonic to Red (However, it is possible to say that Mario wears blue overalls and Sonic wears red shoes). He can also do this with Dr. Mario, who comes from a puzzle game.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'':
** There's [[TheEmpire General Tullius]] and [[LaResistance Ulfric Stormcloak]]. The trope is inverted, though, as Tullius is a military genius, levelheaded and calm. His army wears Red, whereas Ulfric, who is a brash [[ProudWarriorRace Nord]] warrior, both wears blue and outfits his army in it.
** Alduin is the villainous red to Paarthurnax's heroic blue.
** The Blades (Red) are hot-headed and endlessly ambitious in their quest to slay all dragons, while the Greybeards (Blue) are calm secluded mentors. And once The Blades tell you to [[spoiler: Slay Paarthurnax]] you have to make one of the biggest decisions in the game and choose to join one of the sides while the other outright despises you.
** The Imperial Army and the Stormcloaks revert this trope, the Imperials are often more calm and level-headed but wear red, while the Stormcloaks tend to be arrogant, proud and even racist but wear blue. Hadvar and Ralof are the first examples of both sides attitudes.
** The players choice of play style also can explain a lot:
*** The Warrior Constellation is shrouded with red, it's the most physically demanding and brutal choice.
*** The Mage Constellation is shrouded with blue, it requires learning spells and knowledge similar to school.
*** The Thief Constellation is shrouded with green, it involves mostly stealth and patience being both physically and mentally superior.

''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** There's In the series' backstory, during the Alessian Revolt against the [[AbusivePrecursors Ayleids]], Alessia is the Blue to Pelinal Whitestrake's Red. Alessia was the [[BornIntoSlavery escaped slave]] who prayed to the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedra]] for aid in freeing her people from the (primarily) [[JerkassGods Daedra]]-worshiping Ayleids. The Aedra answered, offering a BargainWithHeaven. Part of the aid they sent was the GodInHumanForm [[TheBerserker Berserker]], Pelinal Whitestrake, to serve as the champion of Alessia's armies. Pelinal was ''extremely'' effective in fighting the Ayleids, a OneManArmy who could PaintTheTownRed with Ayleid blood. However, he was also [[FantasticRacism extremely racist]] toward elves, Ayleid or otherwise, and was prone to fits of AxeCrazy psychopathy. During one particular fit of UnstoppableRage, he damaged ''the very lands themselves'' in such a way that the Aedra nearly ''left the world in disgust''. Alessia had to offer prayer and was forced to make sacrifices in order to regain their favor.

** Fei is a complicated case in that he can be either the red ''or'' the blue depending on who the other person is. He's a definite red to Elly and Citan, and Bart is so red that he makes Fei look blue by comparison (and it helps that their respective [[HumongousMecha Gears]] follow this motif).
