In the paradox tower you have to answer green to the question of what is your favourite colour? Why?

You don't have to answer "green". It's just an example given by multiple fansites.

The question is a clear reference to the Monty Python and the Holy Grail movie. For people who watched the film, "blue" is the first thing that comes to mind. And it works as well.

The knights look onward as Sir Lancelot steps forward to the Bridge keeper from Scene 24]

Bridgekeeper: Stop. Who would cross the Bridge of Death must answer me these questions three, ere the other side he see.

Sir Lancelot: Ask me the questions, bridgekeeper. I am not afraid.

Bridgekeeper: What... is your name?

Sir Lancelot: My name is Sir Lancelot of Camelot.

Bridgekeeper: What... is your quest?

Sir Lancelot: To seek the Holy Grail.

Bridgekeeper: What... is your favourite colour?

Sir Lancelot: Blue.

Bridgekeeper: Right. Off you go.

Well it doesn’t work for every colour if you try to say purple for example you get a wrong answer and go to hellgate so I don’t think this is a reference but I never tested blue

Proof: I've attached a screenshot.

Well, probably not every color would work, but I suspect that it is either one of "red", "green", "blue", and maybe yellow (Sir Galahad's favorite).

Many other references seem to be present: a Black Knight, cutting the shrubbery and appeasing the Knights Who Say Ni... And the Holy Grenade was used to kill a demon bunny after all.

To answer another question,  I've asked a friend of a friend to spoil its soul with the forbidden knowledge taken (in the ancient times) by a prometheus from the gods. By the way, we learnt that as well. The valid colors at that time were:

red, blue, green,  orange,  yellow, brown, violet, pink, silver, gold, black, white, and grey;

so you were out of luck. And 1+1 may equal to 1, 13, 49 or 94. Also the riddler will punish you for leaving the conversation with a question unanswered or cheating by guessing the answer without prior knowledge.

The hitpoints bar is green and it’s only green when you are alive and healthy so the favorite colour being green is the same that saying you like to being alive
