Red and black are the badass colors. They make the main character look more flashy and powerful. (Everyone loves goths )

This might be off, but almost all tensais have the leader in red (red ranger... ugh).

And to add to Anime stereotypes, villains are usually blonde, or look like caucasians. I forget his name, but the antagonist in Fushigi Yuugi had blond hair and fair skin. haha. Just a stereotype, no need to get serious over what I said. :P


Actually I have noticed this in several anime. the most recent one I can think of is Code Geass.

Are you sure? I'm pretty sure their darker colors, since those are supposed to look more evil, but it is true at times


Well, It's just a generality, doesn't mean it happens all the time. But the most popular expression for villains is in the eyes. In manga and anime, the easiest way to express the coldness of a character is by increasing the amount of white in the eye (or making the pupil very small).

Protagonists usually have large eyes, and their colors can be very vibrant. Like Red (yipee! Red!), green, blue, etc.

Yes, very true. Smaller eyes make them seem more serious or older. Sometimes good guys have tiny eyes too if they're supposed to be serious

hmm..maybe red shows off some dominant characteristics.. but some don't wear red/reddish clothes.. like SAIYUKI----although Gojyo has crimson hair, he's not really the "main" character.. but i agree! red seems to be worn by the main characters...

**daisuke from DNAngel has orange hair! :D**
