Amazing Technicolor World

Go To
Even the load screens are colourful.

Say you just left a mountain prone to mudslides, then you are surprised you stumble upon a Brightly Coloured Rainforest with multicoloured plants and the skies are rainbow. A world that is colorful even without its wildlife. Congratulations, you just entered an Amazing Technicolor World. But an Amazing Technicolor World is not neccessarily any world as a whole—it can also be just be part of one.

Not to be confused with Amazing Technicolor Battlefield, but may be associated with it. Most, if not all cases also fall under Scenery Porn. If the world is dangerous, see Dangerously Garish Environment.

  • Naruto has Takigakure ("Village Hidden in a Waterfall") from an OVA which contains Bright Greens, Yellows, Cyans and Blues.
    • In Shippuden, there is Kumogakure ("Village Hidden in the Clouds") which contains Browns, Cyans, Greens, Yellows and Blues.
  • No Game No Life is known for being so brightly colored, it hurts. Look at the page image there, and imagine that about 3 times stronger. That's what pretty much the entire anime looks like.
  • The entire world in One Piece total.
  • Everywhere in K. In fact, this is what got most of its future fans to watch it in the first place.
  • Everything in Rolling Girls has the appearance of a giant pastel-colored painting.
  • The SoulTaker has nearly every scene filled with bright & contrasting colors, sometimes combined with Chiaroscuro.
  • The AR-Fields in Digimon Universe: Applimonsters are usually very brightly-colored Dark Worlds that resemble what the real world would look like under the influence of a particular Appmon. Color schemes vary from copper ground and cyan sky to everything in neon colors. The Net Ocean that the AR-Fields all connect to is more variable, with its "server islands" being a mix of normally-colored landmasses and garish floating surfaces all interconnected by a network of bright yellow tunnels.

  • In Paranoia, the various areas of Alpha Complex are color-coded to match the minimum security clearance needed to be there legally. These start at Infrared (black), then run through the entire rainbow in ascending order (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet), before ending with the highest clearance, Ultraviolet, which is represented with white. The color-coding can be as simple as a meter-wide stripe along the walls, but often, the entire area is painted in the relevant color. Attempts by unauthorized personnel to alter the colour of anything in Alpha Complex is treason.

  • In Twice Charmed, the Fairy Godmother's magic turns the black and white ball into a colorful one.

    Video Games 
  • Alice: Madness Returns, specifically, the first chapter where Alice enters the Vale of Tears.

    • Space Paranoids (TRON) from Kingdom Hearts II is currently one of the most colorful.
      •    The Grid    (TRON: Legacy) while colorful is noticeably less so than the world of its predecessor.
    • Traverse Town is full of various colors of neon, especially in the Second and Third District. The new districts added in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, which are full of colorful icicle lights, are even flashier.
    • Monstro (Pinocchio)'s insides are a garish lavender with green and red spots everywhere.
      • Prankster's Paradise (Also Pinocchio) is justifiably just as colorful as its world of light counterpart if not morseo, especially since it has Pleasure Island included this time.
    • Atlantica (The Little Mermaid) is a bright turquoise and is populated by loudly colored sea life.
    •    Hollow Bastion/Radiant Garden    is full of indigo, green, and gold.
    • End of the World from Kingdom Hearts is a deep purple with neon accents and contributions of bright color from previous levels.
    • Twilight Town is, as its name suggests, constantly dyed red by sunset; the architecture itself contributes teal accents.
    • The exterior of    Castle Oblivion    is bronze and teal, starkly contrasting the White Void Rooms that populate its interior.
    • Destiny Island is possibly justified, being a tropical island paradise.
    • Land of Departure from Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. Being the past version of Castle Oblivion, their colors are fairly similar.
    • Disney Town is also quite multicolored.
    • Mirage Arena is similar to Space Paranoids in this regard.
    • Deep Space (Lilo & Stitch) has different color schemes for each section of the world.
    •    Symphony of Sorcery    (Fantasia) is just as colorful as Space Paranoids, while like Deep Space each section of the world has a different color scheme.

    • Monstropolis (Monsters, Inc.) is a pretty colorful factory especially with the multicolored door room.
    • San Fransokyo (Big Hero 6) is just as colorful as it is in the movie.
  • Final Fantasy IV has the underworld with amber lava, red in the areas where the earth and lava meet, black in the earth, dark red rocks and caves and dark purple cave walls. And don't even get me started about Sylph Cave in comparison to Passage of Eidolons and Feymarch.
  • Final Fantasy V has the last floor of the rift which has bright blue crystals, navy rocks, azure glyphs and brown wooded trees with teal leaves.
  • Final Fantasy VII has the Gold Saucer which is practically a Rainbow Amusement Park. The Northern Crater is also colorful.

    • Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels has all of World 9 with very trippy colors. Sadly, the colorful landscape was removed in the Super Mario All-Stars version and replaced with standard colors.
  • If you thought the TRON movies are bad? TRON 2.0 is worse. Bright colors everywhere, landscapes of purple and blue, a corrupted server with a Sickly Green Glow. The Internet looks like Vegas and Coruscant.
  • Eversion (especially the HD version) has World 1 (magenta), World 2 (cyan), World 5 (yellow), World 6 (orange), World 7 (red) and World 8 (purple). Heck, the game's worlds as a whole counts as this trope.
  • The land of Mania in the DLC Shivering Isles from The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is rather brightly coloured, particularly the sky.
  • The entire island of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has neon highlights, along with every cyber-animal and mook.
  • Edgar Teglee's mind in Psychonauts looks like a Mexican-themed blacklight painting.
  • Trine consists of series of brightly multi-colored worlds, wildlife, plants and terrain.
  • Every level in Astal is like this. Justified in that the world this game takes place in, Quartilia, was made from crystals.
  • The final level of Bug Too!, "Cicada Night Fever" appears to be some sort of acid trip level with primarily blue-and-yellow platforms and a rainbow background.

  • The world of Zoophobia.
  • The Rainbow Dimension that Snarlbear takes place in is as colorful as its name, if not more so.

  • Neopia from Neopets
  • In Perri Rhoades' Spectral Shadows the planet of Pentalous is described as this. Parts of the Realm of Fantasy have been said to be this, especially when the art consists of pictures like this.
  • The eponymous world in the Minecraft series Stampy's Lovely World is built to be bright and colourful. Even though there are buildings made out of varieties of stone and wood, Stampy almost always ends up incorporating a splash of colour to the design so that the building doesn't appear dull. Just try looking out over the Lovely World from a high place at night. It's stunning.
