Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.
While most of the characters tend towards red oni, Red vs. Blue has a bit of this going on in the different teams, mostly their leaders. Church, the man in charge of the blue team, is fairly on-the-ball and tries to get things done, and he took over from Butch Flowers, a soft-spoken, thoughtful man whose only flaw seemed to be in thinking that the whole Red Army versus Blue Army conflict was something of a game and strategizing accordingly (in a flashback, when Church reports on Red activity, Flowers refers to them as "Those rascals!" in a no-hard-feelings sort of way). Sarge, leader of the red team, puts exactly no thought into his battle plans beyond how they can be used to kill Grif, but he goes at them with such a fervor that, if he did think about his plans for three seconds straight, he might actually win.
On a more individualized level, the Freelancer Dakota twins. North is the Blue Oni--calm, cautious, and strictly by-the-book during missions, and rather mild-mannered and friendly during downtime. South is the Red, a hasty, Hot-BloodedLeeroy Jenkins during battle, and bitchy, abrasive, and almost anti-social the rest of time.
Gantz Abridged actually calls this trope out in a full-on Shout-Out to the TV Tropes Wiki, with an actual Red Oni alien telling a Green Oni alien that he's supposed to be Blue and asking if they're subverting the trope. The trope is then furthered carried out when the Red Oni decides to immediately resort to smashing things, to which the Green Oni replies, "You WOULD say that."
And in Hbi2k's earlier work, Berserk Abridged, Zodd compared Guts and Griffith to Naruto and Sasuke. Griffith however believed that Guts should fulfill the Sasuke role since he's the angstiest of the two.
Desu Des Brigade has the two female reviewers Jesu Otaku and Vixen to match up to this trope. While Vixen is the more emotional and tends to freak out more often (see: Papa To Kiss in the Dark), Jesu Otaku is far more reserved and analytical. The same goes for Professor Otaku and Arkada, though not nearly as stark of a contrast.
The Mondo Media series Dick Figures features a red stick man and a blue stick man with distinctly opposite personalities.
In Everyman HYBRID, HABIT and The Slender Man come off this way, especially in the fights between the two on Twitter. (Yes, Slender Man actually says something.It's actually pretty creepy.) HABIT types in ALLCAPS and is absolutely insane and unambiguously evil. Slender Man seems condescendingly amused by his shenanigans and his messages are typed normally.
Before HABIT's nature came to light, The Rake was typically thought to be the Red Oni instead.
When Po Ping and Tai Lung arrived in Ink City at the same time, both ended up on the Paint Side of the currently split City and wound up temporarily recolored in the spirit of this. Po found his black and white replaced with vibrant shades of red and yellow and deemed his unexpected makeover awesome. Tai Lung, on the other hand, finds his fur turned various shades of blue and was considerably less amused.
