** Although, at first, Stan and Kyle had similar personalities, later on, they were differenced. Stan was an introvert, calm DeadpanSnarker, while Kyle was an impulsive, bold HotBlooded SnarkKnight, especially in Cartman's presence.
** Tweek and Craig fit this trope, as well. The former is hyperactive, paranoiac and anxious, who shows his emotions easily, while the latter has a darker personality, being stoic, pragmatic, monotonic, and ironic.

** An (almost) literal contrast in 80's animated film WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie: Hot Rod, impulsive and flame-themed (well, his name is a hint), is red (in a color tone tending a bit to magenta). Kup, calmer and more experient, is greyish blue (or blueish gray).

* ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'':
** Rogue and Jean, as the Red and Blue Oni respectively. Rogue is cynical, tough and more impulsive and willing to break the rules, while Jean is intelligent, nurturing and more levelheaded and willing to follow the rules.



* ''WesternAnimation/LegendOfTheDragon'' has the dragon twins Ling and Ang. You may think from looking at pictures that Ling is the blue Oni and Ang is the red Oni. However, in terms of personalities, Ling is the red Oni and Ang is the blue Oni.

** ContrastingSequelAntagonist example: Queen Chrysalis (Season 2 finale) is arrogant and charismatic -- Red -- while King Sombra (Season 3 premiere) is efficient and near-silent -- Blue. [[spoiler:They even team up (albeit just briefly) in the official comics, and the dynamic is only further reinforced.]]
** "Twilight's Kingdom": After [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Discord]]'s FaceHeelTurn, he becomes the Red to [[NoNonsenseNemesis Lord Tirek]]'s Blue. [[spoiler:After Tirek's eventual betrayal and Discord's consequent MyGodWhatHaveIDone, though, the dynamic completely switches: Discord ultimately becomes a somber SpannerInTheWorks (Blue), while Tirek ultimately gets DrunkOnTheDarkSide and just starts blasting everything ForTheEvulz (Red).]]

* ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'':
** Keith and Lance, as the Red and Blue Paladins respectively, embody this trope in battle. Keith is impulsive, hotblooded, and reckless, while Lance is strategic and level-headed. Ironically, outside of combat, they reverse this trope. Keith is stoic, reserved, and pragmatic, while Lance is passionate, emotive, and extroverted.

* Inverted with Pablo and Tyrone of ''TheBackyardigans'': Pablo's blue, hot headed, and panicked a lot in season 1, placing him as the Red Oni. Orange-furred Tyrone, on the other hand, is calmer and more level-headed, which are true aspects of a Blue Oni.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan'' has two examples, one with an inversion in color: sweet-tempered Suzie wears blue while boisterous tomboy Anne has a lot of orange in her outfit, but responsible Henry wears orange while impulsive goofball Stanley wears blue and green.
* One episode ("Alter Ego") of the 1970's era Filmation ''Sabrina, Superwitch'' cartoon featured Damina, a raven-haired Sabrina lookalike with a shrill, grating voice. Depending on who you ask, Damina is Sabrina's "magical mirror image," Sabrina's alter ego, or merely Sabrina's cousin, but what is clear is that she and Sabrina are literal examples of the trope; the rowdy and rambunctious Damina wore a red dress, and the demure and proper Sabrina wore a blue dress.

* Two sets of them in ''WesternAnimation/WingCommanderAcademy'': Payback and Archer (the former is a BloodKnight, the latter often hesitating to end another's life) and, to a lesser degree, Maniac and Maverick (Manic is HotBlooded, Maverick is by-the-book enough to have earned an IronicNickname)

* In the Disney WartimeCartoon [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gluGa_trlHw Reason and Emotion]], Reason is the blue to Emotion's red. They even happen to be colored blue and red. The cartoon also argues that UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler destroys the blue and plays on the red to gain power.

** In "T: The Terrestrial" Lrrr (red) and Jrrr (blue). Lrrr is more hot headed, loud, self centered, and more willing to invade planets and hurt humans while Jrrr is more sensitive, sweet, kind, and does not want to hurt humans. The fact that Jrrr is Lrrr's son is what connects them together to this trope and Lrrr wears a red cape while Jrrr wears a blue cape.
* ''WesternAnimation/MrBogus'' (red) and his best friend Tommy Anybody (blue). However, ironically enough, Bogus actually wears a pair of blue pants, while Tommy wears a pink shirt (to be completely fair would be the closest thing to red) though he does wear blue jeans.

Sideswipe, rebellious punk with a red paint job as the Red Oni and Strongarm, by the books rookie cop with a primarily blue paint job as the Blue Oni. In the [[Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise 2001 series]] by the [[NamesTheSame same name]], there was serious, by-the-book Prowl who becomes a police car, and Side Burn, the cocky hotshot sportscar who keeps flirting with red sports cars (it's hard to know if he understands that they're not sentient... and harder to know what he thinks of his own MidSeasonUpgrade that makes ''him'' a red sports car.)
