All elements, when turned to plasma, give off a specific color. Argon is
purple, Neon is red, Oxygen is white, etc.

So you can tell charaters apart in a show. That is also the same reason
behind characters with blue or green hair, the bright colors of the different
mecha, and so on.

Amuro is white with bright primary colors, while Char is always bright red,
and the thugs are always in dull, darker colors like drab green, drab tan,
drab blue, etc.
