Quick answer: No. Longer answer: No, as it can move to potentially any square on the board, given enough moves. In fact, each square the knight moves to will be to the opposite coloured square than it moves from.

The bishop will always remain on the color on which he begins the game. He is confined to that color for the duration of the match, and the use of the two bishops give a player a bishop on each color.

The Bishop is always on the same color square. This is because it can move only in a diagonal direction from the square it begins the game on. Keep this important point in mind when playing. If your opponent has only one Bishop and it can only go on the white spaces, if you put your king on a black square, the Bishop can never take the King. This is also a reason you should always try to keep both Bishops as long as you can.
