* ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'' is a walking orange-blue contrast; a creature with orange fur wearing nothing but blue pants.

Added DiffLines:

* Plenty of sceneries in ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}'' feature a lot of contrast between orange and blue, such as dim orange lighting inside Grineer galleons and [[UnderwaterBase sealabs]] supplemented with blue light coming through the windows, {{terraform|ing}}ed Mars having brown canyons under clear blue sky or blue Corpus platforms floating through Jupiter's orange atmosphere.


* In the DarkerAndEdgier variant of Music/{{Lights}}' Ice, this is indicated by the Franchise/MortalKombat-like energy bursts used by each character: orange for the heroine, blue for the villain.

* ''The starting areas of VideoGame/HollowKnight'', Howling Cliffs, Dirtmouth and Forgotten Crossroads, all have a similar dark blue color scheme, which makes the orange [[ZombieApocalypse Infection]] stand out as something abnormal compared to the rest of the environments. [[spoiler:This becomes even more pronounced once the Forgotten Crossroads becomes the Infected Crossroads.]]

Has a vague resemblance to the LoudnessWar; in both cases, something is pushed UpToEleven in post-production, removing all subtlety from the sound or picture. Can be a factor in DigitalDestruction.

%%* ''Series/GilmoreGirls''
* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' revival, especially the sixth series. It's also present in the seventh -- "Nightmare in Silver" uses it to show [[spoiler: the two sides of the Doctor's mindscape when the Cyber-Planner starts taking over.]]
* ''Series/BurnNotice'': Watch out for Michael's orange skin, paired with a light blue shirt.
* ''Series/InstantStar'' used a blue filter for the school interior sequences, to better match the late 19th/early 20th century stone HighSchool building they used for exteriors and [[HeyItsThatPlace disguise the interior sets]] built for the midcentury-modern Franchise/{{Degrassi}} school building.
* In some scenes and in a good deal of promotional art, the titular character of ''Series/TheFlash2014'' is awash in orange light or set against an orange background. Some villains, like Zoom and Savitar, are associated with blue light. For the former, it's a representation of his use of [[FantasticDrug Velocity 9]] to attain higher speeds. For the latter, it's a sign of his otherworldly connection to the Philosopher's Stone and the Speed Force.



* ''Series/BurnNotice'': Watch out for Michael's orange skin, paired with a light blue shirt.
* The final scene of [[Recap/CommunityS2E24ForAFewPaintballsMore "For a Few Paintballs More"]] from ''Series/{{Community}}'' has this colouring all over the place, and it looks awesome. Annie, Abed and Troy have white clothes which have been stained with orange paint from the sprinkles, while Jeff, Britta and Pierce are dressed in blue of various shades.



* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** The new series does this a fair bit, especially the sixth series. It's also present in the seventh [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E12NightmareInSilver "Nightmare in Silver"]] uses it to show [[spoiler:the two sides of the Doctor's mindscape when the Cyber-Planner starts taking over.]]
** The Thirteenth Doctor's TARDIS console room, as revealed in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS37E2TheGhostMonument "The Ghost Monument"]], has glowing orange crystals and blue lights in the walls.

%%* ''Series/GilmoreGirls''
* ''{{Series/Gotham}}'': Virtually every scene is rendered in this palette to the point of absurdity. The cityscapes, however, are not.

** ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption'' uses this for box art and other artwork, but it's downplayed in the game itself. While blue is prominent because of Phazon becoming more abundant, orange is largely limited to Samus and her gunship. Shades of orange and some of yellow and/or cream are present in the areas and ambiance of Bryyo and Elysia, but nowhere else.

** This trope is also associated with Princess Celestia, who raises and lowers the sun and is associated with the day, and Princess Luna, who controls the moon, safeguards dreams and is associated with the night. Celestia is generally associated with warm, orange-spectrum colors: her magic glows a golden yellow, and her throne is orange and red. Luna, besides being colored navy blue herself, has a deep blue magic aura.
** In [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie2017 the movie]], Luna gets her own blue throne next to Celestia's orange one, and each is depicted with a stained glass window above it -- Luna's has a blue depiction of the crescent moon, while Celestia's has a bright orange sun.
** This is especially visible in the {{Superpowered Evil Side}}s, Nightmare Moon and Daybreaker. Nightmare moon is clad in blue armor, has a mane consisting of a flowing, navy-blue star field and eyes with light blue scleras and teal irises, and is drawn with a blue outline. Daybreaker is clad in orange armor, has a blazing orange and yellow inferno for a mane and eyes with burnt-brown scleras and glowing yellow irises, and is drawn with an orange outline.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' series uses [[CoveredInGunge covering everything in neon ink]] as a main gameplay mechanic, so ColorContrast is essential between teams. While there are many combinations the games, blue and orange is the most featured pair for the original game, being used in trailers, promotional artwork, and the box art. The orange Inkling girl and blue Inkling boy are even considered the poster children for the franchise, being the default representatives when appearing in other games such as ''VideoGame/MarioKart8'' and ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosUltimate''. In a more practical use of the pair, activating color lock mode forces all team colors to orange and blue, since those two provide the most contrast for most colorblind people. In ''VideoGame/Splatoon2'', however, the default colors are instead green and pink.
** [[spoiler:Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion also uses the classic blue and orange ink from the first game in the boss fight with [[BonusBoss Inner Agent 3]]. ]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/StormHawks'', Piper's outfit is mostly blue with various orange sections, and she wears an orange headband to compliment her navy/cobalt hair.


* Often employed on food packaging to make it stand out, most notably the Scottish drink Irn Bru and the UK snack food Wotsits. To some people in the UK, this colour combination evokes these things regardless of what it's used for.
