* The three player characters in the ''VideoGame/DetectivesUnited'' series are Anna Gray, Agent Brown, and James Blackthorne. This might simply be a coincidence - the series is a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover for three mystery game series produced by Creator/ElephantGames, so they had these names in their original games - but it still fits.

* The Red Ribbon Army in ''Manga/DragonBall'' has such soldiers as: General Brown, Colonel Silver, General White, Sergeant Murasaki (purple), General Blue, Colonel Violet, General Copper, Adjutant Black, and Commander Red. Even Tao Pai Pai fits the pattern, since his name means "peach-white-white". Androids 17 and 18 (created by former Red Ribbon scientist Dr. Gero) also fit in, as their real names are Lapis and Lazuli (named after the deep blue gem), though [[AllThereInTheManual this wasn't revealed until an interview decades after the manga finished]].

* ''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. As to why Ozpin is the odd name out; [[spoiler:he's an eternally reincarnating immortal whose first incarnation was alive before modern humanity and the Faunus even existed. The ''other'' exception, Ozpin's ArchEnemy Salem, is also an immortal remnant of the original humans]].
