    Roxanne's Dress Colors Have Meaning In 'Megamind'

    From Redditor u/ApoIIoJon:

    In Megamind, when we first see Roxanne, she’s dressed in red (a color that goes well with Metro Man’s aesthetic). Then as we see her getting to know Megamind, she’s usually seen in purple (a cross between red and blue), and by the end of the movie, she’s dressed in all blue (Megamind's signature color).
