* OzzyAndDrix has this with a color inversion just like [[OsmosisJones the movie it was based on]], mentioned above, with Ozzy as the Red Oni and Drix as the Blue Oni. This is despite Ozzy being blue and Drix being red.

* In ''TazMania'' the Taz/Dingo shorts, Taz plays the role of the HotBlooded red oni while Digeri Dingo plays the role of the cool and cunning blue oni. Also, Molly and Jake, with Molly being the easily-stressed red and Jake being the more cheerful blue.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Family Guy}}'': Stewie is red to Brian's blue, and Peter is red to Lois' blue. Other pairings within the family can be all over the place, but Brian is definitely the bluest overall. Among the guys, Cleveland is probably the bluest, Joe is generally blue but can get [[NoIndoorVoice REAL RED REAL FAST AND REAL LOUDLY]], Quagmire is usually red, and Peter is almost always red.
* Helga Pataki from ''HeyArnold'' is an aggressive and hot-tempered red, her best friend Phoebe Heyerdahl is an intelligent and laid-back blue.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' has two sets: [[BadassNormal Robin]] and [[GenkiGirl Starfire]] are represented by Red and are more brash, stubborn, and passionate than the others (Starfire displays this most in the [[Comicbook/TeenTitans comics]], to which the flashback/origin episode "Go" paid tribute). [[GeniusBruiser Cyborg]] and [[DarkMagicalGirl Raven]] are represented by Blue and are more intelligent, analytical, and, in Raven's case, cold.
** That, when they are in combat, but when they just hang along, Starfire and Beast Boy are more on the Red side, due to the fact that they are almost always happy, laid-back, and carefree, while Raven and Robin have blue traits, being controlled, calm, and down to earth. Cyborg falls in the middle.
** In the current ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'' comic, Red Devil (literally a Red Oni) and ComicBook/BlueBeetle have become a comic relief dynamic duo that fans have dubbed Beevil. While both characters have similar personalities, Beetle tends to be level headed while Devil is more impulsive.
** Don't forget about Thunder (blue) and Lightning (red).

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' has played with the red vs. blue color game quite a bit. Probably the most clear cut case for this in actual characters is the contrast of angry, defiant {{Determinator}} Zuko, who lives and dies with the IndyPloy (although he is by far one of most complex reds), and the DangerouslyGenreSavvy [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]]/[[TheDragon Dragon]] Azula, who even makes blue fire (which is actually hotter). Some other notable examples of playing with red vs blue include:

* Possibly unintentional, but Blitzwing of ''TransformersAnimated'' has a SplitPersonality represented by his three faces. The black face is TheMadHatter, but the red and blue faces are textbook red and blue oni: the blue face is cold, calm, and calculating (and uses ice powers), while the red face is brash, impatient, and agressive (and uses a flamethrower).

* In ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'', Gir seems to show some signs of this trope, though the colors are reversed. The first few seconds when he was active, the episode "Gir goes Crazy and Stuff", and occasionally through-out the series, Gir's colors switch from blue to red and back again. When red, he seems to show the traits of the Blue oni and is intelligent, calm, and eager to serve his master (often saying "Yes my Master!"). When Blue, he acts more like the Red Oni and is wild and over the top, with no control over his own urges or actions.

* Henry and June in ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'': Henry is the red oni (he's energetic, idiotic (not to extreme levels)), while June is the blue oni (cool, cynical, smart). With June, it kind of makes some sense: she does have blue hair, after all.

* WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead are a borderline case. While both of the boys are active pranksters and neither of them show good judgement, Beavis is HotBlooded, brash, irritable, and violent, while Butthead is more laid-back, calmer, and (barely) smarter. Ironically, Beavis wears a blue shirt while Butthead wears red shorts.

* On ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse,'' there's HotBlooded, cocky, casual Amethyst and precise, intelligent, sometimes inflexible Pearl. However, Pearl isn't as together as many a blue oni - her insecurities can lead her down the wrong path to a much larger degree than the typical red oni impulsivity of Amethyst. They're constantly arguing over how to do things, but can pull it together when they need to (if the emergency is big enough, or when leader Garnet has well and truly had it with their bickering, or, most of all, if Steven gives them that teary-eyed look.) You'd ''think'' they're as red and as blue as two characters can possibly get until we meet...
