One form of ThemeNaming is to name characters after colors. The colors may reflect their personalities (for example, red being violent and white being innocent), but there is often no correlation at all.

See also ColorCharacter, when a character incorporates the name of a color into [[SecretIdentity the name of of a superhero or masked hero]].

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''LightNovel/AccelWorld'' has Silver Crow, Lime Bell, Cyan Pile, Red Rider, Scarlet Rain, Cherry Rook, Yellow Radio, Green Grandee, Blue Knight, Purple Thorn, White Cosmos, Ivory Tower, Orchid Oracle, Crimson Kingbolt, Coral Merrow, Orange Raptor, Violet Dancer, etc.
* The characters of ''Manga/{{Amatsuki}}'' are named after traditional Japanese colours, which are often reflected in their designs, e.g. 'kon' is a dark blue colour, and the character Kon has blue eyes and favours blue clothes.
* The two main characters of ''Manga/AnoKoNiKisuToShirayuriWo'' are named Shiramine Ayaka (shira meaning "white") and Kurosawa Yurine (kuro meaning "black") − although ironically, despite their names Ayaka is black-haired while Yurine is blonde.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''
** Byakuya was designed to be a contrast to Ichigo. Ichigo's family name is "Kurosaki" which means "Black Promontory" and Byakuya's name is centred around the meaning for "white". His family name "Kuchiki" also means "rotting wood". During their final battle, Ichigo's power is jet black and Byakuya's power is pure white. They're fighting on top of a dark promontory surrounded by a forest of white, dead trees.
** The Kuchiki family is all centred around colour naming. Ginrei's name means "silver", Byakuya's name means "white" and Byakuya's deceased father was called Soujun, a name meaning "Green/blue".
** Lampshaded in-universe: Ukitake keeps buying Hitsugaya gifts which annoys the younger captain. When Hitsugaya finally managed to get Ukitake to explain why, Ukitake pointed out that they both have white hair, and that his name is Juu''shirou'' and Hitsugaya's name is Tou''shirou'' making them both ''Shirou-chan''.[[note]]"Shirou" means "white" so "Shirou-chan" would be the equivalent of calling someone "Snowy" or "Whitey"[[/note]] Hitsugaya isn't impressed.
* Numerous characters have color-coded names in ''Anime/BrigadoonMarinAndMelan.'' Notably, the Gun-swordsmen's last names refer to their color. Thus, Melan is "Melan Blue."
* Several major characters in ''Anime/CodeGeass'' have the word 'red' in their names. Lelouch Lamperouge's surname is French for 'red lamp'. Suzaku Kururugi's first [[NamesTheSame name is the same]] as that of a [[TheFourGods mythical scarlet phoenix]]. Kallen's Japanese surname, Kouzuki, is written with the kanji for 'crimson moon'. It has been suggested that Li Xing Ke's name may also be a reference to red, (Shinkuu, the Japanese pronunciation of his surname, means "deep crimson", but is written with different characters).
* In ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'', those who work for the Syndicate have color-themed code names, mostly in Chinese. There's Hei (black), Yin (silver), Bai (white), Huang (yellow), and Amber (obvious), to name a few.
* The Red Ribbon Army in ''Manga/DragonBall'' has such soldiers as: Colonel Silver, General White, Sergeant Purple, General Blue, Adjutant Black, and Commander Red.
* The Cthuwulf in the ''Anime/{{Iczer}}'' series. Named characters are Cobalt, Sepia, Sir Violet, Sister Grey, and Commander Magenta (from the ''Golden Warrior Iczer-One'' manga).
* ''Anime/JewelpetKiraDeco'': the Kira Deco 5 are a {{Sentai}} team that have colors both in their civillian names and code names; '''Pink''' Ohmiya (Shiny Pink), Retsu '''Aka'''gi (Burning Red), '''Blue''' Knight Ozaki (Blue Knight Blue), '''Midori''' Akagi (Smart Green) and '''Ki'''ichi Furano (Slow Life Yellow).
* In ''Manga/KurokoNoBasuke'', all plot-relevant character from Teikou with the exception of Sanada have names spelled with colors. And with the exception of Nijimura, they all [[CurtainsMatchTheWindow have matching hair and eye colors]]. Haizaki is a subversion that he ''used'' to have [[CurtainsMatchTheWindow hair color match his eye]], but in highschool dye his hair black.
** Kuroko, "Kuro"/Black (blue hair and eyes despite the "black" kanji in his name)
** Kise, "Ki"/Yellow
** Midorima, "Midori"/Green
** Aomine, "Ao"/Blue
** Murasakibara, "Murasaki"/Purple
** Akashi, "Aka"/Red
** Momoi, "Momo"/Pink
** Haizaki, "Hai"/Gray/Ash
** Nijimura, "Niji"/Rainbow
** Shirogane "Shiro"/White
* In the ''[[ZeldaManga Legend of Zelda: Four Swords]]'' manga, Link wields the Four Sword, which [[LiteralSplitPersonality splits him into four versions of himself]], each wearing a different-colored tunic. There's [[TheHero Green]], [[TheLancer Blue]], [[TheChick Red]], and [[TheSmartGuy Vio, which is short for Violet]].
* Everyone in ''Manga/MagicKaito'' has this: black (''Kuro''ba), blue (''Ao''ko), red (''Aka''ko), yellow (''Kou''nosuke) white (''Haku''ba), silver (''Gin''zou), and pink (''Momo''i).
* In ''Manga/{{Mahoraba}}'' ''all'' characters have a colour in their surname, usually in Japanese. The list[[note]]written in full on the work page[[/note]] consists of at least 22 characters with unique colours (there are more characters, but some aren't named, and some are related).
* ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'': Many characters have a color in their names, like '''Kuro'''mine (black), '''Shira'''gami (white), '''Ai'''zawa (blue) or Mikan (orange − although it's the fruit).
* The Three Admirals in ''Manga/OnePiece'' follow this as well: [[InvokedTrope Their code-names]] are ''Aka''inu (Red Dog), ''Ao''kiji (Blue Pheasant) and ''Ki''zaru (Yellow Monkey). Also a case of ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming, as a dog, pheasant, and monkey were the animals that accompanied the folk hero Momotaro on his journey.
** The next two admirals are called ''Fuji''tora (Purple Tiger) and ''Ryoku''gyu (Green Bull).
** In tenth movie ''[[Anime/OnePieceFilmStrongWorld Strong World]]'', Shiki's main crewmembers have a color in their name. Golden Lion Shiki. Doctor Indigo. Scarlett.
* The Pokédex holders from ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'' are named for the video game titles that the characters they're based on are from (Red, Blue, Green etc.), with Yellow and Emerald being canon foreigners.
* ''Franchise/PrettyCure''
** ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure'' actually ''gained'' this trope in the English dub, with Nagisa becoming Natalie Blackstone and Honoka becoming Hannah Whitehouse.
*** In fact, Honoka's original surname is Yukishiro, meaning "snow castle", but if "shiro" is written differently, the meaning becomes "snow white".
*** Nagisa had it in the original too. "Misumi" was spelled with the kanji "sumi", which means "black ink".
** ''Anime/FreshPrettyCure'' has a similar theme. The first two Pretty Cures are Love ''Momo''zono and Miki ''Ao''no. The remaining two, Inori Yamabuki and Setsuna Higashi, don't follow this theme (Setsuna and her former comrades are named after speed and cardinal directions).
** ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure'': four of the five Cures have their signature colors in their names: '''Aka'''ne Hino, Yayoi '''Ki'''se, Nao '''Midori'''kawa and Reika '''Ao'''ki.
* Almost everyone in ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' has the kanji for a color somewhere in their names. ''Aka''shiya [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Moka]] (red), ''Ao''no [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Tsukune]] (blue), ''Shira''yuki [[AnIcePerson Mizore]] (white), ''Kuro''no [[HornyDevils Kurumu]] (black), [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Morioka]] ''Gin''ei (silver) and [[CuteWitch Sendou]] ''Yukari'' (written with the kanji for "[[SupernaturalIsPurple purple]]"). These colors are appropriate for the characters, such as Mizore having [[AnIcePerson ice powers]] and Gin being a werewolf.
* The girls of ''Manga/TokyoMewMew'' are all named after [[EdibleThemeNaming plants or desserts]], and their last names follow the pattern of Color [[LocationThemeNaming Place]] (Momomiya = Peach Shrine, Midorikawa = Green River, etc.)
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* The Ravens, very obscure vampiric foes of the original ComicBook/{{X-Factor}}, all had color names: Crimson, Azure, Coral, Cerise, Beryl, Ruby, and Cobalt.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In ''Fanfic/SuperSentaiVsPowerRangersTheLiveblog'', [[Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman Radiguet]]'s six monsters are all named after a color in Japanese and their main elemental powers: '''Ak'''ire (red fire), '''Ao'''cean (blue ocean), '''Midor'''ungle (green jungle), '''Momo'''rtex (pink vortex), Dar'''kuroi''' (black darkness), and '''Ki'''thunder (yellow thunder).
* Creator/AAPessimal takes a look at the ''[[Series/CaptainScarletAndTheMysterons Captain Scarlet]]'' world in the story ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5504060/1/When-the-War-is-Over When The War Is Over]]''. Spectrum needs a ''lot'' of operatives. But the English language has only a limited number of colour terms. How do you get past the bottleneck and get employee numbers up to establishment? The tale discusses various imaginative ways to name new officers...
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Mr. Blue, Mr. Grey, Mr. Brown and Mr. Green (note that these are all quite normal American surnames) from ''TheTakingOfPelham123''
* ''Film/ReservoirDogs'' contained an {{homage}} to ''TheTakingOfPelham123'' with Mr. Blonde, Mr. Blue, Mr. Brown, Mr. Orange, Mr. Pink, and Mr. White. (Although, to be fair, these names were assigned aliases deliberately chosen to adhere to a theme.)
** Some guy on some other job is Mr. Purple.
* In ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'', Mr. White's employer is a certain Dominic Greene, and one of Greene's subordinates is a Mr. Slate.
* Coincidentally occurs among a few cast members of ''Film/SchoolOfRock'': Jack ''Black'', Mike ''White'', Sarah ''Silver''man and Jordan-Clair ''Green''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* In ''[[Literature/{{Discworld}} Thief of Time]]'', after [[spoiler: the Auditors take human form en masse]], they name themselves after various colours, possibly a nod towards ''Film/ReservoirDogs''. Since there's so many of them, they're hard pressed for available colors, such as one furiously arguing that yes, dark avocado is a color so shut up. Not to mention arguing over which colors are higher in hierarchy and trying to take them for themselves.
* There is a famous series of picture books from Sweden about three [[MaidenAunt unmarried sisters sharing a house]]. While not their real names, they are always called after the colours they wear: Aunt Green, Aunt Brown and Aunt Lavender. Their neighbour is similarly known as Uncle Blue.
* In the Casson family series, all four children are named after colours, their parents being artists. The eldest is Cadmium Gold, and the colour yellow sums up her personality pretty well, she is bright, cheerful and [[FriendToAllLivingThings everyone likes her]]. Her younger brother Indigo (dark blue) is quieter, thoughtful and sensitive. He also likes to watch the starry sky at night. Saffron on the other hand is a proud, independent girl who feels lonely and isolated since she found out that she was adopted when her mother, her stepmother's twin sister, died. Saffron is outspoken, direct and can be quite harsh at times. It is said that she resembles Cadmium, meaning she is very pretty. The youngest is Permanent Rose, an adorable, very stubborn girl and the artist of the family. She nearly died when she was born, so her mother named her Permanent Rose, as a promise that she would stay.
* From the AubreyMaturin series: Aubrey and his friend and fellow post-captain Heneage Dundas discuss the captain of ''HMS Iris'', who not only wants to dress his bargemen in the colors of the rainbow (due to the connotation of his ships name), but specifically seeks out sailors ''named'' for said colors: e.g., with surnames like "Scarlett," "White," or "Green." He offered Dundas a brass "chaser" cannon in exchange for one of his sailors whose name was Blew. (Dundas declined, sharing with Aubrey a dislike for "costumed" bargemen.)
* In ''Literature/WarriorCats'', the first part of cats' names come from things a forest cat would know, such as plants, animals, and natural objects. They also use a lot of colors - every basic color except purple and pink. They even use some more unusual colors, such as "golden", "silver", "copper", "russet", "tawny", "amber", and "fallow". Oddly enough, out of 750-ish characters, "white" is the most common prefix of all, and even "fallow" got used about five times, but "brown" only got used once, and the cat in question disappeared from the cast list before recieving his warrior name.
* Literature/TheGoodTheBadAndTheMediochre. Mediochre himself insists his name is a shade of red. His boss is named Kiwi, a shade of green. The dragon he encounters is named Deep Ocean, which she tells him is a shade of blue. The BigBad uses the code name 'Sapphire', another shade of blue.
* Each of stories that make up ''Literature/BrothersOfTheSnake'' is named in "[color] [X]" pattern, such as ''Black Gold'', ''Blue Blood'' or ''Crimson Wake''.
* Literature/RoTeO has a TV show called ''Crimson'' which is crucial to the plot. In it, there's the titular thief Crimson and the White Knight (a {{Kaitou}}).
* All four of ''Literature/TheUltraViolets'' are named after colours: Iris, Cheri, Scarlet, and Opaline.
* In ''Literature/{{Domina}}'', Akane and her sisters all have color names: Midori (green), Shiro (white), Murasaki (violet), and Akane (red). The trend apparently started with Midori: Despite being pure-blooded Japanese, she has green eyes, which are ''extremely'' rare. It seems like the rest were just named to fit the theme.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* The vast majority of ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' shows feature color-based codenames for its heroes, to the point that it's easier to name the handful of exceptions where they ''don't'' use color-based codenames (which are ''Series/JAKQDengekitai'', ''Series/BattleFeverJ'', ''Series/TaiyouSentaiSunVulcan'', ''Series/DengekiSentaiChangeman'', ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'', ''Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger'') and ''Series/ResshaSentaiTokkyuger''.
** A couple of ''Sentai'' series (''Series/DenshiSentaiDenziman'' and ''Series/DaiSentaiGoggleFive'') worked this in even the heroes' civilian names. Even ''Series/HikoninSentaiAkibaranger'', an ''unofficial'' Sentai series joined in on this trend.
* ''WesternAnimation/BluesClues'' has the title character, who in a subversion of color-related norms is female. Several other animal characters are also named for their colors, such as the puppies Magenta and Green, and kittens Orange and Periwinkle.
* ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon'' Act Zero has the three policemen Kuroi (black), Shiroi (white) and Akai (red).
* Members of MAC in ''Series/UltramanLeo'' include '''Kuro'''da (black), '''Aka'''ishi (red), '''Ao'''shima (blue), '''Shira'''kawa & '''Shira'''ido (white), and '''Momo'''i Haruko (pink). [[spoiler: By the way, all these individuals died violently.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pinballs]]
* All of the rivals in ''Pinball/BanzaiRun'' follow this theme: Green Machine, Blue Beard, Yellow Belly, and Red Hot.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Puppet Shows]]
* In ''Series/CaptainScarletAndTheMysterons'', all code names are colours: Captain Scarlet, Lieutenant Green, Colonel White, and so on.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sport]]
* New Zealand's RugbyUnion team is called the All Blacks, and other national sporting teams have followed their lead: the All Whites (soccer), Tall Blacks (Basketball), and Black Caps (Cricket). their netball team, the Silver Ferns, may also count.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''Cluedo'' (known as ''Clue'' in America) has all the main characters named after the colors of the pawns used in the older versions (Miss Scarlet, Mrs. White, Mrs. Peacock, Prof. Plum, Mr. or Rev. Green, and Col. Mustard). The victim's name is Dr. Black (though changed to Mr. Boddy in the American version). Extended versions and variations keep with the trend, naming characters after other colors. There was Miss Peach, Mme. Rose, M. Brunette, Capt. Brown, Inspector Brown, Rusty (also brown), Sgt. Gray, Mr. Slate-Gray, Lord Gray, Lady Lavender, Prince Azure, and Mrs. Meadow-Brook (blue-green), though of course (since some colors are repeated) they're not all used in the same variations.
** And in the French version: Dr. Lenoir (the victim), Dr./Rev. Olive (Rev. Green), Prof. Violet (Prof Plum), Melle Rose (Miss Scarlet), Mme Leblanc (Mrs. White), Mme Pervenche (Mrs. Peacock)... And Col. Mustard, whose name was literally translated.
* The ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'' card game has the DarkWorld archetype, each of which has a name similar to that of a color. They all have the common tie in that their effects depend on being discarded from the player's hand by the opponent.
** Latinum: Platinum or white
** Goldd: Gold, or yellow.
** Siilva: Silver, or gray.
** Scarr: Scarlet, or red.
** Gren: Green.
** Renge: Orange.
** Zure: Azure, or blue.
** Beiige: Beige, or brown.
** Celuri: Cerulean, or cyan.
** Snoww: Snow, or white.
** Reign-Beaux: Rainbow. Incidentally, he's the strongest of the bunch.
** Grapha: Graphite or grey. He's stronger then Reign-Beaux.
* Most of the original Space Marine chapters in ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' were named for their armour colours, only later developing personalities, traits, idiosyncracies and histories of their own. These being the Blood Angels (blood red), Flesh Tearers (dark red), Ultramarines (blue), Space Wolves (grey), Dark Angels (black), Whitescars (white), Silver Skulls (bright silver), Iron Hands (dark silver) and Rainbow Warriors (blue with a rainbow slash on the helmet).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The first generation of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' games have color-themed town names (playing the games on the SNES's Super Game Boy or through one of the ''Stadium'' games on the N64 yields a different color scheme for each town based on the name).
** The second generation games combine this with theme naming based on plants - for example, Ecruteak (teakwood and the color ecru), Cianwood (wood in general and cyan), and Mahogany (both a type of wood and a color derived from it).
** Red and Blue are the main characters of the [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue original games]]. A character named Leaf (after "[=LeafGreen=]") was added in the remakes as it adds the ability to choose the [=PC's=] gender found in later games (storywise, she's pretty much just [[DistaffCounterpart Red, but female]]). The sequels, ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Pokémon Gold and Silver]]'', have Gold (later renamed Ethan), Kris, and Silver as main characters. It wasn't until after that generation that they stopped naming characters after colors.
** [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Two]] [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite generations]] got color-named games - the others are named after valuable minerals, which also have homonymous colors (except Crystal and Diamond).
*** All of the Seven Sages in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' are named after colours of the rainbow... except for Ghetsis, who shares MusicalThemeNaming (G-C#) [[spoiler:with his son N]].
*** Cheren and Bianca, also from ''Black'' & ''White'', complement each other in both personalities and names - Cheren is Slavic for black, Bianca is Italian for white.
*** Hugh from ''Black 2'' and ''White 2'', whose name is derived from "hue".
* ''VideoGame/PhantomBrave'' examples include Ash, Walnut, Canary, Scarlet, and I'm fairly sure Marona, Castile and Sulphur count as well. Of course there are others.
** To specify, the characters are named after wood hues (though some just have normal colors as their names) Marona is derived from the french world from Maroon, Ash is synonymous with grey/black, Scarlet is a shade of red (and Sienna, a yellow-brown) and Canary (a one man AnimalWrongsGroup) is named from Canary Yellow. Of cuse some don't match this pattern (Namely Raphael and Sprout). Other characters with color names include Chief Editor Indigo, Sienna's assistant, Murasaki (Japanese for purple). Marona's mother is Jasmine, and Walnut's real name is Faded.
** Most unique abilities for characters are also color themed. Marona's family has the ability "Chartreuse". Scarlet the Brave and Walnut have "Psycho Burgundy", Raphael's ability "Heliotrope" (Pink), Sprout's "Dark Eboreous" (Ebony), Flame's "Cobalt Blues", Fox's "Viridian Copper", Lierre's "Myosotis" (The color of forget-me-nots), and Drab's "Mega Crocus" (A color of lilies)
* In ''Videogame/{{Touhou}}'', Chen, Ran, and Yukari's names mean Orange, Indigo, and Violet respectively. Each name's color's position on the electromagnetic spectrum corresponds to its owner's power level with violet being the strongest and orange being the weakest.
** And then there are [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast the Scarlet sisters]], and [[FanNickname Lily Black]], who is Lily White {{cosplay}}ing, or [[{{Fanon}} a completely different character]].
* In ''FinalFantasyTacticsA2'', you get to engage with the Cinquleur, whose names are Ruuj (red), Bliu (blue), Verre (green), Nware (black), and Blanch (white), each representing their job class.
* Both the Erusean Air Force and the Belkan Air Force from ''AceCombat'' use colours for squadron names, though Belka uses the German versions. In an aversion of the LawOfChromaticSuperiority, Yellow Squadron is Erusea's elite unit.
* '''Every major character''' in ''VideoGame/GunstarHeroes'' is named after a color, with the exception of Pink's two sidekicks, as well as Smash Daisaku.
* RED and BLU of ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', natch (which doubles as FunWithAcronyms). Other fronts for the organizations seen in the in-game signage also follows this convention (such as Red Bread and Blue Corn in the Granary map), as do the names of their founders, Redmond and Blutarch Mann.
** Continuing the trend is the [[CainAndAbelAndSeth third brother]], Gray Mann, and his [[DaddysLittleVillain daughter]] Olivia (olive green).
* The villains of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII: VideoGame/DirgeOfCerberus'' are called Rosso (red) the Crimson, Azul (blue) the Cerulean, Shelke (amber) the Transparent, Nero (black) the Sable and Weiss (white) the Immaculate.
* Red and Blue, heroes of ''VideoGame/TreasureHunterG'', are members of an entire family of color-based names. Other characters are exempt from the theme, though.
* ''VideoGame/SagaFrontier'' brings us twins Blue and Rouge, as well as Red, who seems to be an expy of the ''VideoGame/TreasureHunterG'' character.
* All of the characters of ''VideoGame/{{VVVVVV}}'' are named after colors. For bonus points, all of their names also start with the letter "V" (Viridian, Vermilion, Violet, etc.; hence the game's title).
* ''VideoGame/ThePath'': All the girls' names are variations on "Red".
* ''KingdomHearts'' has a colourful music theme of the 'bell' type {{Heartless}} (Red Nocturne, Blue Rhapsody, Yellow Opera and Green Requiem in the first game and ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories''; Crimson Jazz, Silver Rock, and Emerald Blues in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'').
** [[GoddamnBats About a dozen more]] were added in ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2 358/2 Days]]''.
* In ''VideoGame/NazoNoMurasamejo'', the four lesser castles are named Aosame, Akasame, Ryokusame and Momosame, which respectively contain the Japanese words for blue, red, green and pink.
* The three high school friends from ''VideoGame/JackFrench and the 7 Dwarfs'': Michel ''Lebrun'' (French for "brown"), Sam ''Black'' and Will ''White''.
* ''[[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} Kirby]]'': [[GreenHillZone Green Greens]], Red Canyon, [[PalmtreePanic Orange Ocean]], Purple Plants...
* The three siblings from ''Detana!! VideoGame/TwinBee'' are named after their respective colors: namely Light (Blue), Pastel (Pink) and Mint (Green).
* ''VideoGame{{Solatorobo}}'': The protagonist is named Red, while two antagonists who claim Red is related to them are named Blanck and Nero (White and Black).
* ''VideoGame/{{LiEat}}'' has Vermillion Town, Azure Town and Gold Town.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Runbow}}'', the main characters are named after [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HSL_and_HSV the HSV color space]]. The default male PlayerCharacter is named Hue, the BigBad is named Satura(tion), and the default female player character is named Val(ue).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': WordOfGod has [[https://twitter.com/montyoum/status/406894139746172928/photo/1/large confirmed]] that, with only one exception, all characters in the show are named according to specific rules that are linked to colour associations. The exception is Professor Ozpin. The main characters are especially noted for their colour associations and how their names are associated with those colours: Ruby is red-themed and is based on Little Red Riding Hood; Weiss Schnee is white-themed and is based on Snow White (her name is German for "White Snow"); Blake is black-themed and her name comes from an Old English word referring to someone with black hair; Yang is yellow-themed, based on Goldilocks and has a name connected to the light of the sun. The episode "Field Trip" reveals there was once a war where corrupt leaders tried to ban art and all other forms of expression. Parents started naming their children after colors in defiance. After the war, the tradition stuck.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* In the ''Webcomic/SequentialArt'' Webcomic, the [[http://www.collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php?s=470 squirrel sisters]] Scarlet, Amber, Jade and Violet. Though when written it's rather [[LeetLingo 4M83R, 5C4RL37, J4D3 and V10L37]].
* ''Webcomic/CollegeRoomiesFromHell'': Michael Redford Green and his sister Blue.
* In ''Webcomic/ColourWheel'', all the named characters so far are named after their color scheme. Some are more blatant than others.
* In the (short-lived) WCI High, there was a trio of girls named Goldie, Sylvie, and Rusty.
* In ''Webcomic/PlusEV'', the mother's name is Violet. Her first daughter is Scarlett, which is a shade of red. And violet is a mixture of red and blue. So it was logical to give their second daughter a name that's a shade of blue, and thus she was named... Ultramarine!
* In ''Webcomic/NoRestForTheWicked'', [[http://www.forthewicked.net/archive/01-16.html Perrault remembers the red theme]] of Red's name.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'', the first two succubi to become actual characters are Fuschia and Baby Blue -- whose hair and clothing are that color. Others of them have been given color nicknames by fans, and one, Sapphire, has been made official.
* ''Everyone'' in ''Webcomic/PastelDefenderHeliotrope''.
* The ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' spinoff Sticky Dilly Buns features sisters Amber and Ruby, hitting this and {{Rock theme naming}}
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''WebVideo/FranceFive'', being a parody of ''Franchise/SuperSentai'', naturally follow the same format with its heroes: Red Fromage, Black Beaujolais, Blue Accordéon, Yellow Baguette, Pink à la mode.
* In ''Roleplay/WeAreOurAvatars'', the Original Character Orange continues the color theme of the [[Franchise/DragonBall Red Ribbon Army Color Theme]] as he's the brother of Capt. Yellow), but he's also named after [[EdibleThemeNaming a citrus fruit]], as he's the rival of [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Lime]].

[[folder:Real Life]]
* This is a very common way to designate mass transit lines. Different lines tend to have different colors on maps anyway, and simply calling them after their colors makes them easy to remember and less confusing to outsiders. Some examples:
** The UsefulNotes/WashingtonMetro has the Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Orange, and Silver Lines.
** The UsefulNotes/ChicagoL has the Red, Blue, Orange, Green, Purple, Pink, Brown, and Yellow Lines.
** The UsefulNotes/TheT in Boston has Orange, Red, and Blue subway lines plus the Green Line, which is a subway/surface streetcar line, and the Silver Line, which is Bus Rapid Transit.
** The UsefulNotes/LosAngelesMetroRail has Blue, Red, Purple, Green, and Gold Lines of varying characters. There are other lines that do not adhere to the theme, however.
** The UsefulNotes/TwinCities' mass transit system has light rail Green and Blue Lines, an operational Bus Rapid Transit Red Line, and an under-construction Bus Rapid Transit Orange Line.
** The UsefulNotes/{{Portland}} Trimet MAX transit system has Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, and Blue Lines.
** The [[UsefulNotes/NorthEastEngland Tyne and Wear]] Metro has two lines, Yellow and Green.
