A form of NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast.

[[ColorCodedForYourConvenience Villains often favor certain colors of clothing and weapons]], so it's not surprising that such colors should be in their ''names'' as well. Black and Red are by far the most popular, as they are seen as the most evil colors around; see DarkIsEvil and RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver.

!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Black]]
Especially popular. (Blackguard, Blackheart, Blackthorne, Blackout, etc...)

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* The morally ambiguous contract killer who stars in ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' is codenamed Hei - Chinese for "black".
** Hei also has a RedBaron, "The Black Reaper."
* Schwarz (German for "black"), the Slave-summoning villains from ''Manga/MaiOtome''.
* Black☆Star from ''Manga/SoulEater''.
** And his father, White☆Star.
* Akuha Shuzen, infamously known as the Black Devil from ''RosarioToVampire''.
* BloodKnight OmnicidalManiac Karasuba (who's name translates literally to "raven feather") is known as the "''The Black Manga/{{Sekirei}}''".
* The eponymous ''Anime/BlackRockShooter'' and her/its supercharged form, Insane Black Rock Shooter.
** Her arch-nemesis Black Gold Saw (who is actually ''red'').
** Also, the rarely mentioned Black Matagi.


[[/folder]]

[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* The Blackthornes in ''NobleCauses'' are a family of supervillains.
* [[Comicbook/GhostRider Blackheart]]
* [[Characters/GLBlackLanternCorps Black Hand]] as seen in ''BlackestNight''.
* [[Characters/{{Batman}} Black Mask]]
* ''ComicBook/{{Blacksad}}'', the {{Badass}} noir detective protagonist in the comicbooks of the same name.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Film ]]

* Lord Blackwood from the first Creator/RobertDowneyJr ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' film.
* Discussed in ''Film/ReservoirDogs''. Joe assigns the robbers their color-coded aliases himself. When they ask why they don't get to choose, he explains that he tried that before but it didn't work, because most of the guys were arguing over who got to be "Mr. Black".
* Most of ''Film/TheWolfman2010'' takes place in sleepy little English hamlet of ''Blackmoor'', that's not ominous at all!

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* [[Literature/GoodOmens Dr. Raven Sable.]]
* [[Literature/HarryPotter Sirius Black]], although this turns out to be somewhat misleading. It definitely applies to most of the rest of his family, though. His family attempts to deliberately invoke this trope with astronomical names multiple times. Sirius, Andromeda, Regulus, Draco, probably several of the others do this also, but I don't know astronomy well enough to tell you for sure.
** Bellatrix is also named after a star.
*** BilingualBonus (of sorts) overlapping with MeaningfulName: Bellatrix is a Latin name meaning "warlike".
**** To be honest, almost every character or even the spells fit into MeaningfulName: for example, Malfoy is quite similar in pronounciation (when you delve into latin languages) to "the one who was bad" - more specifically, the "was bad" part.
* TheLaundrySeries is home to the Black Chamber, the rather...morally unsound US paranormal agency.
* [[TheFirstLaw Black Dow]]. Among an entire ''nation'' of [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Named Men]], he's still infamous.
* Parodied ''and'' subverted in ''Literature/{{Grunts}}'', when the various orc squads pick names. There are an over-abundance of black, sable, ebony, etc...And then Pink Squad. They're kind of worried about Pink Squad.
* The BigBad of the first ''Literature/FaeriesOfDreamdark'' book is commonly known as "the Blackbringer". If that's not sinister enough for you, his ''real'' name is the [[NamesToRunAwayFrom/NamesEndingInTh Astaroth]].
* Randall Flagg goes by the name of The Black Man in ''TheStand''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live-Action TV ]]

* ''Series/KamenRiderBlack''
** For that matter, Series/KamenRiderBlackRX
* Frank Black from Chris Carter's ''Series/{{Millennium}}''

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Music ]]

* Music/BlackSabbath.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Radio ]]

* From ''Radio/AdventuresInOdyssey'', the evil Dr. Regis Blackgaard. Arguably subverted in that he has a twin brother, Edwin, who shares the name but is only guilty of being a LargeHam.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]

* And Nero the Sable from ''DirgeOfCerberus''.
* Count Bleck from ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario''. Not quite in English, but his name in Japan is 'Count Noir', which is French for Black.
* Some ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' black dragons such as Sabellian aka Baron Sablemane.
* In the ''{{Sonic|TheHedgehog}}'' Universe, '''[[ShadowTheHedgehog Black...Doom...]]'''[[OhCrap yeah...we're screwed...]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Einhander}}'' has the [[ThatOneBoss sixth boss]], a shuttle your character is supposed to destroy. That [[TransformingMecha transforms into the boss.]] Its name? [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience Schwarzgeist]] ([[GratuitousGerman German]] for "Black Ghost").
* Mr. N. Black from ''RedDeadRevolver''.
* Blackhorn from ''{{Astyanax}}''.
* Black Collar (later renamed Black Ninja) from ''VideoGame/MetalGear2''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Bart Gets An Elephant", Stampy the elephant is nearly sold by Homer to an ivory dealer (and onetime whale hunter, seal clubber, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking president of the FOX network]]) named Mr. Blackheart.
** In "Kamp Krusty", there's Mr. Black, the evil camp councilor who torments Bart, Lisa, and the rest of the kids attending the eponymous camp.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Real Life ]]

* The All Blacks, New Zealand's national rugby union team. They are currently ranked #1 in the world and are the World Cup champions. The name came from a typo; one writer called them "the all backs", meaning they all play fast, running games typical of the backs, but it was misprinted and the name stuck. Black is now the country's national colour, with many other sports teams being named "X Blacks" or "Black Xs".
* Bubonic plague, also known as the Black Death.
* Edward "Blackbeard" Teach.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Red]]
Or any variation. Crimson and Scarlet sound especially BadAss. Vermillion, less so, but you can work with it. See also RedBaron.

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* For ''HighschoolDxD'', there is the Crimson-Haired Princess of Ruin. We know her best as Rias Gremory.
* [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam The Red Comet]]. Also the Crimson Lightning, but he often gets confused with the other guy.
* Rezo the Red Priest of ''Anime/{{Slayers}}'' has a piece of the Dark Lord of his world sealed in his eyes, making him steadily more evil through his life. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d by Lina when she comments that his name sounds like a villain's after they meet and he tries to play her into giving up a powerful artifact.
* Anime/PorcoRosso is just a BadAss.
* Erza Scarlet is one of the few character who can discipline [[Manga/FairyTail Natsu]].
** Now we also have [[CuteGhostGirl Mavis Vermillion]], [[spoiler: Fairy Tail's first master]], who might be joining Makarov and Gildarts as the BigGood.
* Solf J. Kimblee [[Anime/FullMetalAlchemist the Crimson Alchemist]] could also be considered this especially considering [[spoiler: What he did in the War of extermination in Ishval]]
* The Red King, Suoh Mikoto of ''Anime/{{K}}'' also qualifies. While he's usually pretty laid back and downright lazy, once he gets down to business there is no stopping him. He is more than once described as violent and a berserker, blows up whole buildings and takes down an elite team without even blinking. Just ask Awashima how dangerous he is.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* RedSkull
* Crimson Dynamo of ''ComicBook/IronMan''.
* Red Star of the ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' belongs here too.
* Red Rackham, the titular pirate of ''[[Franchise/{{Tintin}} Red Rackham's Treasure]]''.
* [[Characters/XMenVillains Omega Red]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Film ]]

* Film/RedSonja is definitely someone you tread carefully around, unless you're Ahnuld.
* Red Mist from ''Film/{{Kick-Ass}}''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* The Red Queen from ''[[Literature/AliceInWonderland Through The Looking Glass]]''.
* Queen Redd from ''Literature/TheLookingGlassWars'', the Red Queen and the Queen of Hearts rolled into one.
* Even just plain old "Red," a.k.a. '''Carmine''' Zuigiber as ''Literature/GoodOmens'' proves.)
* A dragon named Scarlet in the ''SwordOfTruth'' series, though really it doesn't matter what the name is, you better run from a dragon if she ain't called Puff.
* Scarlett O'Hara, of ''GoneWithTheWind'' wasn't exactly the southern sweetie she liked to pretend she was. She EARNED that damn not being given!
** [[VideoGame/{{Uninvited}} A strange woman appears. She is dressed like Scarlett O'Hara]]. [[SchmuckBait She says "Thank you for coming back for me, my love. You will be mine forever."]] [[FalseReassurance Oh well, she's not the real person, just dressed like her.]] S'cuse me, lady -- [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQCRSUN69yQ OH HOLY]] [[CurseCutShort SHIIIII---]] [[KilledMidSentence *is ripped apart*]]
* ''[[Franchise/TheDarkTower The Crimson King]]''
* ''[[Creator/EdgarAllanPoe The Masque Of The Red Death]]''
* in ''Literature/ThePrincessSeries'', the "[[Literature/LittleRedRidingHood Lady of the Red Hood]]" is one of the most feared ''assassins'' in the land.
* Ripred from ''Literature/TheUnderlandChronicles.''

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live-Action TV ]]

* Now let's not forget about [[Series/That70sShow Red Forman]]
* ''Series/VRTroopers'' has [[http://metalheroes.wikia.com/wiki/Red_Python Red Python]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder: MMORP Gs ]]

* While not a person's name, the Scarlet Crusade from ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''. Originally devoted to slay undead, but turned into an army of insane religious zealots bent on killing anyone who's not one of them. Also, their leader is a demon/vampire in disguise.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Music ]]

* Music/KingCrimson. The name sounds much more intimidating than the actual sound/image of the band, however.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]

* ''DirgeOfCerberus'''s Rosso the Crimson, translating to "Red the red". Yes, she is ''extremely'' bloodthirsty. She also has a Russian accent.
* Of course the [[LittleMissBadass rather dangerous]] [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Scarlet Sisters]] from the various ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Project'' games: Remilia Scarlet and Flandre Scarlet.
* [[VideoGame/MegaManX Red, and Axel the Red]], two Mavericks from the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' series.
* Depending on who you ask, Red from ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' is no one to take lightly. That is, if you are Team Rocket or the Hero of ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver''...
** Akagi, the Japanese name of the BigBad of ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'', can be read as "[[ApocalypseWow Red Future]]".
* Subverted in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': Scarlet of Shinra is utterly laughable as a villainess, present only to fill the role of TheVamp. All she manages to do is be annoying enough that you can't help but relish the literal [[DesignatedGirlFight bitch-slap fight]] atop the Sister Ray.
* Vermilion from ''VideoGame/BattleArenaToshinden''.
* Subverted with Carmine from ''GearsOfWar'', a recurring RedShirt character.
* Crimson Fury from ''TwistedMetal''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Web Comics ]]

* A very bad example is Scarlet Foxfire, which has a color, animal, and fire, from the {{webcomics}} of Creator/DavidGonterman. Gonterman probably does actually intend her to be a badass, but seeing as how she's some sort of superpowered vixen fursuit (worn by a guy), well, her status is dubious, at best.
* Redcloak from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* [[http://gijoe.wikia.com/wiki/Red_Dog Red Dog]], one of The Renegades in ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeTheMovie''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Real Life ]]

* The RedScare.
* The very, very obvious ''The RedBaron''.
* Scarlet fever.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Yellow]]
The Victorians and Edwardians loved to associate this with madness and decay as the symbol of the plague is a yellow flag with a single black spot flown above an infected vessel or building. In other cases, it might just be related to inherent abilities of [[ShockAndAwe lightning]] and/or [[FragileSpeedster awesome reflexes.]] If the word "gold" is used instead, it may simply be a reference to wealth and/or greed.

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Minato Namikaze]] A.K.A. the Yellow Flash. The ONLY Ninja listed in the Black Book with a "Run On Sight" tag...
** ...Not that it would help much if he was after you.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Film ]]

* The eponymous villain Auric Film/{{Goldfinger}}. Bonus points for his first name meaning "gold" in Latin.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* ''TheKingInYellow'' by Robert W. Chambers more or less launched the idea of the BrownNote to the modern world with "the yellow sign"
* ''Literature/TheYellowWallpaper'' by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
* Creator/HPLovecraft also had a King in Yellow and the [[BrownNote Yellow Sign]]
** A ShoutOut to Chambers.
* Emmanuel ''Gold''stein from ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour''--we don't know what he's really like, or if he even exists, but the Party certainly portrays him as a villain, almost a {{Satan}} figure to Big Brother.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Real Life ]]

* Yellow fever.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:White]]
Occasionally used as a subversion. Bonus points if the guy in question is an EvilAlbino.

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* Light Yagami of ''Manga/DeathNote'' is a variation.
* The manga of ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' featured a reporter following the crew as they chased the White Siblings, Ash and Blanche, who preyed on the elderly.
* The White Devil, [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha Takamachi]]. Well, it's a name to run from if you have done anything to incur her wrath. Okay, so she won't cause any lasting damage, but you are going to be in one hell of a lot of pain...
* White Devil already spread fear fsince 1979 as the nickname Zeon forces gave to the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam RX-78-2 Gundam]] and his pilot Amuro Rei.

* The true name of the Bane (the EvilAlbino rat) from ''TheUnderlandChronicles'' is Pearlpelt.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]

* Albert "Chalky" White, from ''Series/BoardwalkEmpire'' is either a VillainProtagonist or an AntiHero, but he's most definitely someone you do not want to cross. Extra irony points for Chalky being a black man with three names meaning "white".
* Lucien Lacroix from ''ForeverKnight''...granted, his original Roman name was 'Lucius', but he still gets points for being a villain with a name that means 'white' or 'light'.

[[/folder]]

[[foldercontrol]]

* Castle Greyskull from ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Real Life ]]

* GreyDeLisle is a subversion. She's voiced numerous villainesses and morally ambiguous characters ([[WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy Mandy]], [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents Vicky]], and [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Azula]], to name a few), but it's a case of [[MeanCharacterNiceActor Mean Character, Nice Actress]].

* Azura of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* Azula, cold and ruthless villain from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Name originally comes from the colour of her flames (blue -- which is more intensive than normal red and yellow).
** And then there's Zuko's famous "Blue Spirit" alter-ego, in which he dons a blue mask and ninja garb and carries twin swords.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pink]]
Not generally a colour considered associated with dangerous or villainous characters.

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* Until you remember that [[Anime/{{Slayers}} Lina Inverse's]] official title is 'Lina the Pink Sorceress.' And if you [[BerserkButton call her that to her face]], you will ''need'' to run away really fast.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Film ]]

* Horace Pinker from ''Film/{{Shocker}}''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live-Action TV ]]

* Pink doesn't seem scary until you remember that in ''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy'' it was the [[spoiler: Pink Psycho Ranger that was not only the last to be killed, but also caused the death of the first ranger in Western Power Rangers history. Seven seasons in, and it was an {{elite mook|s}} that was pink nonetheless, that finally killed one off.]]

* Music/{{Pink}}, known for her tough {{ladette}} image.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Real Life ]]

** In Russia, more hardcore communists sometimes call those whom they deem [[NoTrueScotsman communists in name only]] "white-pinkies" (''belo-rozovy''), combining the former use of "pinko" with white, the color of anticommunism since the Civil War.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' series colors can be associated with power. The color purple usually represents power.
