** 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).

* ''VideoGame/GravityRush'' features Kat, an [[GenkiGirl energetic]] and [[NiceGirl earnest]] Red Oni, and her [[TheRival rival]] Raven, the [[DeadpanSnarker more snarky]] JerkWithAHeartOfGold. Double points for the fact that when using their powers, Kat turns red while Raven turns blue.

* Though they've been around for decades before its time, the storyline of the ''VideoGame/EpicMickey'' games gives this trope to Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Written to portray the two as long-lost brothers, Mickey is - of course - the happy Red Oni who's always looking on the bright side of life. And it's through his foolishness and curiosity that the story takes off. His older "brother" Oswald - donned with appropriately-colored shorts - is the Blue Oni who is bitter and solemn due to the traumas of his past. In the first game, his character is shrouded in mystery for quite some time, and the people of his kingdom seem to both admire and fear him. [[spoiler:By the second game, the two have developed a strong friendship and are massively protective of each other]].

*** Inverted with water-typed but clownish Popplio (red) and fire-typed but stoic Litten (blue), with Rowlet in the middle. This is, however, switched around when they evolve; Litten's final form Incineroar is a furious heel wrestler (red), while Rowlet's final form Decidueye is a shrewd archer (blue). Popplio's final form Primarina is calm and dignified but not as cold as Decidueye, placing it in the middle.

** 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 AffablyVillian, 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.
** The sequel ''Sonic Rush Adventure'' has Marine (Red) and Tails (Blue).

* Joseph Sheridan and von Richter in the {{WW2}} {{RTS}} game ''VideoGame/{{RUSE}}''- while the US officer Sheridan, a [[BookDumb Yale-dropout]], is described as impetuous and willing to push the enemy to their limits, whatever the cost may be, German General von Richter is described as a chess-player, who prefers ''calculated'' approaches with maximal gain and minimal losses. The real Blue Oni at Sheridan's side is TheLancer, [[BritsWithBattleships Colonel Andrew Campbell, Senior British Intelligence Officer]]. He is calm, collected, and introduces Joe to all the ruses, and practically is his tutor throughout the war (as he also is older and more experienced than Sheridan). He evens keeps Sheridan from ''addling away'' once being promoted to General, like his [[GeneralFailure predecessor]] did before him.

Rubella is an offense-focused [[NonIronicClown non-ironic]] GenkiGirl, while her brother Tristis is a defense-focused [[PerpetualFrowner perpetually frowning]] SadClown.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'':
** The game 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.
** The portable remake 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.
* Best friends Chie (hot blooded Red) and Yukiko (calm and polite Blue) in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''. However, their powers are inverted, as Chie (Red) uses [[AnIcePerson ice magic]] and Yukiko (Blue) uses [[PlayingWithFire fire magic]].
** There's also [[TheLancer Yosuke]] and the [[TheHero Protagonist]]. Indeed, [[spoiler:keeping a cool head is what unlocks the good ending for the game.]]
* ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'' has this with each character rivalry.
** Yu vs Yosuke: Yu (blue) is calm, quiet, and reserved while Yosuke (red) is cocky, headstrong, and something of a joker.
** Chie vs Yukiko: Chie (red) is a tomboyish kung-fu nut while Yukiko (blue) is a YamatoNadeshiko.
** Kanji vs Naoto: Kanji (red) is brash, violent, and quick-temprered while Naoto (blue) is quiet, intelligent, and methodical.
** Akihiko vs Mitsuru: Akihiko (red) is fight-happy and confident, while Mitsuru (blue) is an intelligent IceQueen.
** Aigis vs Labrys: Aigis (blue) is calm and calculating, while Labrys (red) is much more passionate.
