Playing With: Amazing Technicolor World
Basic Trope: a location that is bright or full of color.
  • Straight: On their journey the heroes enter a rainbow desert.
  • Exaggerated: Everywhere has colors so eye-jarringly bright, with colors of all kinds.
  • Downplayed: A forest has every leaf unrealistically green (or orange/red/yellow in fall), but everything else looks normal.
  • Justified: The brightly colored area is tropical.
  • Inverted: The characters are multi-colored, but the environment is gray.
  • Subverted: A character goes through a rainbow portal, into... a grey world.
  • Double Subverted: ...except only that one spot was grey; everywhere else is still brilliantly colored.
  • Parodied: Characters regularly go blind from looking at the scenery.
  • Zig Zagged: Alice goes through a technicolor portal, into a brightly colored world. But she realizes she's wearing colored goggles! When she takes them off, everything seems dull... for a few moments, until her eyes adjust, and she realized that everything is still more colorfull than real life. Then she gets chased a few hundred feet by an Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever, and realizes that only that one spot is technicolor. But she liked the colors so much that she decides to get out a paint bucket and start painting the rest of the world!
  • Averted: The environments have very few colors.
  • Enforced:
    • "This show is for kids. Make it colorful!"
    • The creators, executives, artists, or what have you want to give the setting a fun and out-going feel to it.
  • Lampshaded: "This place looks just like my crayon box."
  • Invoked: The heroes grab some paint and start painting everything.
  • Exploited: "Oh, there's an enemy! I can tell because it's brown!"
  • Defied: Any time a children's show uses a normal/dim color palette.
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
