** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', this is inverted with Cid as the Red Oni in blue clothes and Vincent as the Blue Oni wearing bright red. In a more direct exemple, you have Tifa as the Blue Oni in dark clothes and Aerith as the Red Oni in red clothes. Played even straighter with their Wall Market dresses, respectively blue and bright red. After [[spoiler: Aeris dies]], Yuffie becomes the Red Oni to Tifa's Blue Oni. Zach (Red) and Cloud (Blue) also follow this trope.

After [[spoiler: Aeris dies]], Yuffie becomes red. ***Cloud, while he'll [[AttentionWhore show off whenever he gets the Red Oni to Tifa's Blue Oni. Zach (Red) chance]], is collected and thoughtful, with his flashiness being mostly a [[ADarkerMe self-consciously cool persona]]. He's generally associated with purple, blue, white or black, and comes equipped with Ice magic at the start of the game. Barret is a loud HotBlooded LargeHam who wears his emotions on his sleeve (there's several occasions where he's explicitly described as crying, while the closest Cloud (Blue) ever comes is acknowledging that his eyes were burning). He wears mostly warm tones, uses bullets and fireballs as weapons, and has a tattoo featuring fire. Note also follow this trope.that Cloud's highly personal DuelToTheDeath quest is patterned after [[{{Ronin}} samurai tropes]] while Barret's is based on SpaghettiWestern tropes, suggesting SamuraiCowboy. ***Zack's optimistic, vibrant, HotBlooded, more experienced than Cloud and (in the original game, anyway) goes out with women without letting them tell their mothers. In ''Crisis Core'' he uses the blunt edge of his sword and is motivated by justice and heroism. Cloud's pessimistic, thoughtful, sarcastically witty and more innocent - but he can be ruthless, is motivated by revenge and always uses the sharp edge of his sword.

* [[LegendOfHeroesVI Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky]]: Hotblooded, combative, outgoing, soft-hearted, athletic, sometime tactless (though rarely downright mean or without a good point), mildly ditsy (it comes and goes) GenkiGirl protagonist Estelle is the Red Oni; her cool-headed, book smart, tactful, introverted, mildly sneaky and pragmatic yet not unfriendly or uncaring adopted brother Joshua is the Blue Oni. Their hair colors match this, as well, with Estelle having auburn hair and Joshua's hair being dark.

* The polite and serene Nepgear (blue oni) of ''HyperdimensionNeptuniaMk2'' has this relationship with her {{Tsundere}} best friend Uni (red oni) and her hyperactive sister Neptune (red oni). There's also the energetic and brash Ram (who dresses in pink) and her sister; the extroverted and calm Rom (Who dresses in blue).

* Meta example: The SegaGenesis as red and the {{Super Nintendo|EntertainmentSystem}} as blue. The Genesis had [[MemeticMutation blast processing]] but had poor graphics and a low-grade sound engine, making it focused on action games, while the Super Nintendo had great graphical capabilities, including Mode 7, and a great sound engine but severe sprite limits, making it more suited for [=RPGs=]. However, the whole example is yet another inversion, going by the colors of the company logos and mascots (Sega and Sonic: Blue, Nintendo and Mario: Red).

* Ryu and Ken from ''Franchise/StreetFighter''. Ryu is philosophical, traditional, and prefers using the fireball from a distance, while Ken is brash, cocky, and innovative, and his favorite move is the uppercut, best performed at close range.

* In the ''ViewtifulJoe'' anime, Joe wears a red costume in hero form while Junior wears a blue costume in hero form. Joe is the strong, energetic, reckless one, while Junior is shaping up as TheSmartGuy. The color-coding is reversed in their normal forms, however. And in the games (on which the anime is based), the blue oni is represented by Silvia who always tries to keep her boyfriend on task.

* VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}} has [[TheHero Shulk]] and his childhood friend [[TheBigGuy Reyn]]. The former is a methodical, nerdy [[TheEngineer engineer]] who likes to think things out before executing them, and is somewhat of a pessimist (Blue), while the latter is an impulsive BoisterousBruiser bordering on DumbMuscle specializing in combat (Red). However, their colors don't reflect this, with Shulk wearing red and Reyn orange as default.

* The ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros''! While, originally, the Bros. were little more than a PaletteSwap of each other until DivergentCharacterEvolution split them apart. Mario, being the titular hero, wears red and is the all-around happy-go-lucky, kick-assy, everyone (except Bowser)-lovesy guy. Whereas the green-clad Luigi became portrayed as a CowardlyLion, who is rather introverted. ** Appropriately enough, in ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga]]'', after visiting two temples, Mario gets the power of (red) fire and Luigi gets the power of (blue) thunder.

* {{Otomedius}} features the [[CreepyTwins Gofer Sisters]], R.B. (Red) and L.B. (Blue). To further drive home this trope, they favor those colors on their dresses and matched fighters, [[Myth/NorseMythology Hugin and Munin]]. ** [[{{Otomedius}} Otomedius Excellent]] introduces the [[RobotGirl Robot Girls]] Arnvel (Blue) and Straf (Red). The opposition is further driven home by them being an [[AngelsAndDemons Angel-And-Devil-themed]] pair. * ''BreathOfFire III'' has a mild case of this with Garr (red) and Gaist (blue) ([[spoiler: at least, before Gaist dies).]] Their horns are even conveniently color-coded. * ''BreathOfFire IV'' plays this trope ''extremely'' straight with Ryu (Red) and Fou-lu (Blue); literally the ''only'' deviation would be that these two are not literally ''oni'' but rather SplitAtBirth halves of a draconic ''god''. (Fou-lu is, in fact, a ''literal'' GodEmperor who gets driven down a TraumaCongaLine and ends up ultimately a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds). Also, the ComicBookAdaptation of ''BreathOfFire IV'' and concept art play this ''so'' straight, in fact, that literal DragonsUpTheYinYang comparison is made of Ryu (yang) and Fou-lu (yin).
