* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' a can of hot chocolate powder in Undyne's house is described as a 'green cylinder' despite being clearly blue on screen. Since the game was written by an American (but homaging Japanese console RPGs), it's likely an homage to this trope.

* In Japan, "go" traffic lights are green, but art of traffic lights is blue. This shows up in an early episode of ''TransformersCybertron,'' where we see an actual traffic light (well, it's a robot in disguise, but still), and a slideshow presentation of a traffic light, and they're different colors.
