!!Film - Animated
* ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' has Snow White (blue) and the evil queen (red). Snow white is very sweet, kind to animals and other people, and naïve while the evil queen is jealous, tyrannical, abusive, vain, arrogant, and murderous as she is obsessed with killing Snow White so the queen could become the fairest of the land.
** Any of the seven dwarfs can qualify but Grumpy is seen as red and Dopey as blue. Grumpy is most angry, reckless, impulsive, and very loud while Dopey is soft spoken, sensitive, silent, and happy go lucky. Grumpy also wears red clothing while Dopey wears green clothing and a purple hat.
* Genie and Carpet from ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}''. Energetic and boisterous Genie is the red to [[TheQuietOne Carpet's]] blue.
* ''Disney/TheLionKing'': Mufasa (blue) and Scar (red), who are brothers. Mufasa is more kind, caring, and rules the pride lands with a benevolent desire to help others while Scar is jealous, arrogant, self centered, and very sneaky. After Mufasa's death, his son, Simba replaces his father as the blue Oni.
** Timon (red) and Pumbaa (blue). Its not very evident in the film but is more present in their own series and later films. Timon is sarcastic, self centered, reckless, and has a more impulsive temper while Pumbaa is more sensitive, kind, caring, cautious, and has a more controlled temper.
* ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'': Lilo (red) and Nani (blue). They are both sisters, which helps this trope. Lilo is more adventurous, outgoing, and more reckless while Nani is more cautious, strict, and very protective of Lilo. Also Lilo wears a red muumuu while Nani wears a light blue shirt
** Aliens Jumba (red) and Pleakley (blue). Jumba is more reckless, masculine, impulsive, and would take aggressive approaches to completing tasks while Pleakley is more laid back, sensitive, effeminate, and cautious towards finishing tasks.
** Although its not evident in the first film, Gantu (red) is paired up with Reuben "Experiment 625" (blue). Gantu is very aggressive, impulsive, reckless, and would go through violent and extreme means in capturing experiments while Reuben is more sensitive, laid back, lazy, and more focused on making sandwiches than capturing experiments. Ironically, Gantu's skin color is bluish-gray while Reuben's fur color is yellow.
* ''Disney/BigHero6'':
** Hiro is reckless while his older brother Tadashi is very mature. After Tadashi dies, Baymax becomes the Blue Oni owing to his trait of being EXTREMELY calm.
** Cheerful and outgoing Honey Lemon contrasts Go Go Tomago's quietude and snarkiness.
** Fred is just a total whack-a-doodle, while Wasabi has SuperOCD.
* Lightning [=McQueen=] and Doc Hudson from ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}''. [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience Appropriately their respective colors are red and blue.]]
* In ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', sisters Anna and Elsa. Anna is energetic, impulsive and headstrong; Elsa is distant, reclusive and cautious. Anna has red hair and Elsa primarily dresses in blue.
* In ''Pixar/KungFuPanda2'', destined enemies Po and Shen. Po is the action-loving, clumsy and buffoonish but good-hearted hero. While Shen is his elegant, sharp-tongued and cunning villainous opposite.
* ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'':
** Mushu and Cri-kee qualify. ColourCodedForYourConvenience.
** [[Disney/{{MulanII}} The sequel]] shows Mulan and Shang in this dynamic.
* The title characters from ''WesternAnimation/MrPeabodyAndSherman'' (not in that order): Sherman's hair is conveniently reddish no less.
* In ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}} '' The British Settlers and The American Indians this was cemented during the song "Savages."
* ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'':
** Charlotte and Tiana. They also fit the TomboyAndGirlyGirl mold as well, with Charlotte being the [[CuteButCacophonic loud]], over-dramatic, [[TheDitz ditzy]], SpoiledSweet dreamer and Tiana being the quieter, more [[CloserToEarth down-to-earth]] working girl. Also, one scene has Charlotte in a pink ballgown with Tiana in a (borrowed) blue dress.
** Tiana and Prince Naveen also fit the description to a T, with Tiana being a serious {{Workaholic}} and Naveen being overly laid back and lazy.
** Louis the alligator (blue) and Ray the firefly (red). Ray is more crude, sarcastic, and often charges into a fight while Louis is more laid back, sensitive, and is afraid of guns.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'':
** The DistantDuet "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tVTEyuCKn4 The Plagues]]" has Moses in orange light and Ramses in blue shadows at the end of the song. Their clothing choices throughout the film follow the same color scheme. It fits their overall personalities as well, with Moses being the impulsive and exuberant one that gets them both into trouble, and Rameses being the overly thoughtful, in-control type hailed as a great leader. (Though ultimately, Moses’s passionate nature results in empathy and compassion and enables him to save his people; whereas Rameses’s analytical, rule-following stoicism makes him cold and ruthless and causes his greatest fear—ruining his father’s legacy—to come to pass.)
** Moses' siblings, Aaron and Miriam, are a good beta example of this trope: Aaron is cautious and comes off as cold and uncaring while Miriam is passionate, warm and impulsive. Like many other pairs, their clothes are a reflection of this.
* ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians'' has three good examples:
** North and Bunny who are also ColourCodedForYourConvenience, the former wears a red coat and is boisterous and loud, while the latter has bluish grey fur and is more stoic and meticulous.
** The chatty and flighty Tooth (red) and the quiet and laid-back Sandy (blue).
** Jack is the mischievous, fun-loving and impulsive hero (red), and Pitch is the cold, cunning and suave villain (blue).
* Rapunzel and Flynn from ''Disney/{{Tangled}}''. Rapunzel is an energetic, innocent, stubborn and emotional dreamer and Flynn is a laid-back, snarky, somewhat grumpy and jaded criminal. [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience Appropriately,]] Rapunzel wears a pink dress and Flynn wears a blue vest.
* Also by Pixar, Russell and Carl from ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}''.
* In ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', Judy is energetic, naive and impulsive while Nick is laid-back, cynical and cool-headed. Their colours are reversed though; Judy wears a blue police uniform and Nick is a red fox.
** Chief Bogo (red) and Benjamin Clawhauser (blue), who are the members of the ZPD that Judy works in Bogo is more hot headed, strict, muscular, and more masculine while Clawhauser is more laid back, sensitive, effeminate, and has problems with his weight. What makes this ironic is that Bogo is a cape buffalo which are herbivores, putting him in the prey category while Clawhauser is a Cheetah, which are carnivores and puts him in the predator category. What is also ironic about them is that both of them wear blue police uniforms

!!Film - Live Action
* Peter Jackson's Middle-earth universe:
** In the film characterization of ''Film/LordOfTheRings'':
*** There's the angry dwarf Gimli and the elegant Legolas.
*** Then there's the proud [[BoisterousBruiser Boromir]] and the world-wise Aragorn, though the [[WarriorPoet more thoughtful]] Faramir (blue) can be paired with his brother as well.
*** In case of the four Hobbits, Sam and Frodo as well as Pippin and Merry. Or [[LetsGetDangerous Merry and Pippin are the red]] to [[ThouShaltNotKill Frodo and Sam's blue]].
** Then comes the film characterization of ''Film/TheHobbit'':
*** Bilbo (red) and Thorin (blue), since Bilbo is excitable and somewhat silly whereas Thorin remains dignified. It especially helps that the two wear their distinctive colors.
*** Also, [[BoisterousBruiser Dwalin (red)]] and [[TeamMom Balin (blue)]].
*** [[FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling Kíli (red) and Fíli (blue)]] can fit this trope as well.
*** There's also Tauriel and Legolas in the last two films. Tauriel can also be paired with Thranduil, who is also blue.
* ''Film/SadakoVsKayako'': Maybe not so apparent as ghosts (because let's face it, they both just want to kill people) but in life, Sadako from ''[[Literature/TheRing Ring]]'' was quiet and sad while Kayako from ''Film/{{Juon}}'' was enthusiastic and cheerful. Sadako as a ghost is also more fueled by a cold hatred of the world while Kayako is fueled by rage of what her husband did to her and her son. [[http://sadakaya-sousenkyo.jp/ The advertisements even play up these respective colours with the characters.]]
* ''Film/{{RedTails}}'': The primary character conflict is between {{Hero}}/{{Lancer}} duo Easy and Lightning. Blue and Red respectively.
* In the ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' series:
** The title character (sloppy, hot-tempered demon dating a human flamethrower) and Abe Sapien (studious, slightly prissy gillman) are actually addressed as "Red" and "Blue" respectively; although this is due to, y'know, their actual skin color, the association still fits.
** Hellboy and Kraussin ''Film/HellboyIITheGoldenArmy'', particularly when Krauss is possessing that Golden Army trooper in the final scene - all his glowy bits go blue. They fit the personality portions of this trope to a T.
* ''Franchise/StarWars'' :
** The Sith and the Jedi fits this trope to a T. The Sith wield red lightsabers and are defined by their passions and their ambitions. While the Jedi typically wield blue or green lightsabers and are presented as more intellectual and steeped in tradition.
** On a more individual level, the master/apprentice relationship between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker during the prequel trilogy. Obi-Wan is the more cautious and thoughtful blue Jedi and Anakin, being younger and more ambitious, represents the passionate red. Of course, this speaks volumes about the paths the men choose by the end of the end of said trilogy.
** Later (or earlier, depending on how you look at it), the trope is played with by Han and Luke. They switch roles as CharacterDevelopment ensues: Luke starts out as the impulsive idealist to Han's world-weary cynic, while by the third film Luke is the disciplined and determined warrior and Han is the emotionally driven one.
** Franchise-wise, the prequel trilogy is the red oni to the original trilogy's blue oni.
** The iconic factions can be seen this way: The Rebel Alliance were the unprepared, unethical, luck-relying red oni to the militarized, orderly, and prim blue oni, Galactic Empire.
*** The same for the Clone Wars, The Separatist Droid Army were the red oni to the Galactic Republic's Clone Army blue oni.
** [[PolarOppositeTwins Luke and Leia are blue and red oni to one another]]. Luke is a calm, mild-mannered Jedi Knight while Leia is a quick-tempered, sharp-tongued political leader. This is especially apparent in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''. Interestingly, [[GenerationXerox they parallel their parents from the Prequel Trilogy]], with Luke taking after their mother Padme, while Leia takes after their father Anakin.
** R2-D2 and C-3PO can qualify. Artoo is very impulsive and reckless, while Threepio is very cautious and timid. Ironically, Artoo has a blue and white color scheme, while Threepio has a gold color scheme but does get a red arm in ''Film/TheForceAwakens''.
** ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' features some Red Oni/Blue Oni pairings.
*** [[DefectorFromDecadence Finn]] plays the Blue Oni to Poe Dameron's Red, and afterwards, the Red Oni to Rey's Blue Oni.
*** Among the villains from The First Order, Kylo Ren, the emotionally unstable Dark Side enforcer, plays Red Oni to General Hux's Blue Oni, who has better control over his emotions despite being impulsive himself.
* In the movie version of ''LAConfidential'', Edmund Exley is a near-perfect example of a blue oni (and nearly always dresses in a blue suit to boot), while Bud White is very much a red oni (complete with brown/maroon suit).
* In ''Film/MenInBlack'', Agent K is the serious, deadpan blue oni mentor while Agent J is the wisecracking, impulsive red oni rookie.
* JamesEllroy seems to love this trope; the two detectives at the center of his ''The Black Dahlia'' are even referred to explicitly as Mr Fire (red) and Mr Ice (Blue).
* The Will Ferrell movie ''{{Blades of Glory}}'' has Chazz Michael Michaels, the improvisational, womanizing idiot Red Oni, and Jimmy Macelroy, the technical, thoughtful man-child Blue Oni. This is even reflected in their "Fire and Ice" costume.
* From ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'', Rorschach/The Comedian/Ozymandias to Dr. Manhattan. Actually, ''everybody'' is a Red Oni compared to Dr. Manhattan.
** A better example might be that Rorschach is Red Oni and Nite Owl II is Blue Oni.
* Every ''Film/DieHard'' movie has one or more elements of this. John [=McClane=], the hot headed runner and gunner always goes up against a calculating intellectual BigBad. The first two movies also have a subplot involving [=McClane's=] "Red Oni" tactics budging up against the "Blue Oni" by-the-book style of the authority.
* A villainous example in ''Film/BigGame'': the BigBadDuumvirate has hot-headed, always furious Morris as Red and cold, detached, psychopathic Hazar as Blue.
* The Henke and Genji clans in ''Film/SukiyakiWesternDjango''.
* ''Film/XMen'':
** The movies had the rivalry between Pyro and Iceman.
** Victor is the red to Logan's blue in ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine''.
** In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', Erik Lehnsherr is rather hot-headed while Charles Xavier is more level-headed. [[http://roashina.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/x-men-first-class-magazine.jpg ''Empire'' magazine even colour-coded the front covers of their May 2011 issue accordingly.]]
* ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' 'verse has raging werewolves versus cold, calculating vampires.
* ''Film/HardCoreLogo'' has the intense, impulsive Joe Dick and the quieter, more calculating, ambitious Billy Tallent.
* In ''Film/{{Serenity}}'', Mal is a red oni of the heroic type and the Operative is a blue oni of the villainous type. Mal wears warm tones while the Operative dresses in blue.
* Ferris Bueller and Cameron Frye in ''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff''.
* Del Griffith and Neil Page in ''Film/PlanesTrainsAndAutomobiles''.
* ''Film/FightClub'': Tyler is impulsive and rash, whereas the Narrator is a calm and cool businessman. Their different personalities are, of course, all mixed-up in the heat of the fight.
* ''Film/TradingPlaces'' has Billy Ray Valentine and Louis Winthorpe III.
* The ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'' movies have Marty [=McFly=] and Dr. Emmett "Doc" Brown. In [[Film/BackToTheFuture Part I]], he also played red oni to his father George's blue oni in 1955.
* ''Film/TopGun'' has the brash/hot-headed Maverick play Red Oni to the Blue Oni of his level-headed copilot Goose and their more by-the-book fellow pilot Iceman.
** Of course, Goose and Maverick's helmets are a subversion.
* In ''Film/PointBreak1991'', Bodhi is Red Oni while Johnny is Blue Oni. They also make very decent VitriolicBestBuds.
* Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne in ''Film/DumbAndDumber'', as illustrated by their {{Tacky Tuxedo}}s.
* ''Franchise/IndianaJones ''
** Indy is the red oni to his father Henry Sr.'s blue oni in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade''.
** In ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'', Jones is the blue oni to Mutt's red oni, with good reason: [[spoiler:Mutt is really his son.]]
** In ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'', Belloq is the blue oni to Indy's red oni. This ties into their preferred methods for acquiring artifacts. Indy is hands-on and collects them personally. Belloq hires other people to do the dirty work while he stands off to the side acting sophisticated.
* ''Film/OsmosisJones'' has this with a color inversion. Ozzy is the Red Oni and Drix is the Blue Oni. This is despite Ozzy being blue and Drix being red.
* It could be said that Buffalo Bill is the red oni to VillainProtagonist [[SilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter's]] blue oni.
* In ''Film/SenseAndSensibility'' references it in the title and has a few examples.
** Straight-laced and collected Elinor is blue, while the flighty and passionate Marianne is red.
** The men who court Marianne: Willoughby is fun and dashing, but false. Colonel Brandon is reserved but true.
** Charlotte Palmer is bubbly and easily excitable, while her husband Mr. Palmer is quiet and sour.
* Thor and Loki from ''Film/{{Thor}}'' and ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' are the epitome of this trope. Although, given their colour schemes, it's more like Red Oni, Green Oni.
** Another ''Avengers'' example would be Iron Man & Captain America. The brash and arrogant antics of the red-clad Iron Man really don't sit too well with the humble-natured and calm Captain America, who wears blue.
** In the regular ''Film/IronMan'' films, James Rhodes is the blue Oni to Tony's red. And, like Rogers, he is usually seen wearing blue.
** Another member of the Avengers who embodies both Onis is mild-mannered scientist Bruce Banner and his alter-ego the Hulk, who is literally a raging id.
** The two major [[SuperTeam Superhero Teams]] in the MCU (The Guardians of the Galaxy and the Avengers) can qualify as a Red Oni, Blue Oni dynamic. The Guardians are very cavalier and disorganized, while the Avengers are very orderly and mindful.
* In ''Film/WilliamShakespearesRomeoAndJuliet'', the Montegue men are Anglo guys in Hawaiian shirts who seem to be a bit more loose and rough. The Capulets are angrier, sharply-dressed Latinos.
* In the 2011 film ''Film/{{Warrior}}'': Tommy is red, Brendan is blue. Their gloves are color-coded for your convenience. %% This entry was added automatically by FELH2. In case the wording doesn't make sense, rewrite it as you like, remove this comment and tell this troper.
* ''Film/PulpFiction'' [[ZigZaggingTrope zig zags this trope]] with Jules and Vincent. On the surface, the former is hotheaded and the latter is calmer, if not outright aloof. As the film progresses, it's quite clear that Jules is the one with the more level head and that his "Bad Motherfucker" tendencies appear only when someone (usually Vincent) says or does something really stupid. Vincent, on the other hand, is a bumbler, needlessly starting a brief argument with the Wolf when presented with advice to solve [[IJustShotMarvinInTheFace a problem he started]] and leaving dangerous stuff around for people to find [[spoiler: (Mia with the drugs, Butch with the sub-machine gun) ]].
* ''Film/LethalWeapon'' has Riggs as the Red and Murtuagh as the Blue.
* The two burglars in [[HomeAlone Home Alone]]: Harry is the blue oni and Marv the red oni.
* In ''Film/PacificRim'', Newt and Gottlieb are red and blue respectively.
* In ''[[Film/{{Rush2013}} Rush]]'', the hardcharging partyboy James Hunt is the red oni to his rival Niki Lauda's cool, cerebral blue oni.
* In ''Film/VivaMaria'', trigger-happy Bardot!Maria and cerebral Moreau!Maria.
* In ''Film/TheLegendOfFrenchieKing'', aggressive and impatient Maria versus calculating and relaxed Louise.
* In ''Film/BlondeInBlackLeather'', Claudia starts out as idealistic and naive, with Monica passing for cool and street-smart (they're also dressed in the respective colors). They switch roles as the movie goes on, with Claudia becoming savvier and more down-to-earth while Monica comes off as something of a manic-depressive.
* ''Maiko Haaaan!!!'' combines this with the traditional kabuki hero/villain colour schemes. The protagonist, Onizuka Kimihiko, is very excitable and is driven by his passions while the antagonist, Kiichiro Naito, is much more reserved and collected. [[TheAlcoholic Unless he's drunk]].
* The ''Sister Act'' films have an interesting example of RedOniBlueOni pairs. Deloris/Sister Mary Clarence and Sister Mary Patrick are Reds. Sister Mary Lazarus and Sister Mary Robert are Blues.
* Professor George Falconer (blue) and his student Kenny Potter (red) from ''Film/ASingleMan''. They even somewhat acknowledge/discuss this trope when Kenny buys a red pencil sharpener for himself and a yellow one George picked out for George. Kenny shows surprise George didn't pick blue. All of George's relationships fit this mould, actually, and there's some hints Kenny's best friend is also a blue to his red.
* ''Film/TheManFromUNCLE2015'' has Napoleon Solo as the Blue Oni (a suave and analytical CIA operative) and Illya Kuryakin and the Red Oni (a hot-blooded KGB agent who often seems to be only just keeping his emotions in check). This is particularly noteworthy because it is an inversion of their Oni roles in the [[Series/TheManFromUNCLE original series on which the movie was based]] where Napoleon was the comparatively cheerful and easygoing American and Illya the coolly intellectual Russian.
* ''Film/VictorFrankenstein'': Victor is a man of unbridled passion while Igor is a man of moderation and reason.
* ''Film/TheFastAndTheFurious'':
** The plot of ''Tokyo Drift'' can be summed up as "Two Red Onis fight, everyone else is a Blue Oni trying to stop them". That said, Sean does play a good Blue Oni to the impassioned, arrogant Red Oni DK.
** In the main timeline, Brian is the confident, out-there Red Oni running circles of fire around the careful, controlled Blue Oni Dom. This only describes their usual demeanors, however - Brian has his Blue moments from his former career in law enforcement, Dom can easily out-Red Brian with an angry and brutal NoHoldsBarredBeatdown whenever someone gets under his skin.
* ''Film/ThreeTenToYuma'': Outlaw leader [[BigBad Ben Wade]] is charming and cool-headed, while his [[TheDragon dragon]] Charlie Prince is fanatical and TriggerHappy.
* ''Film/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'': Christine herself is both Oni colours considering she's both an amazing singer but understanding others as well. The Phantom is the Red Oni, who displays much lust, flare and has the most dramatic roles in the story. Raoul is the Blue Oni opposite to the Phantom, for he protects Christine without being obsessive or threatening.
