* In a surprisingly recent example, ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' has a portrait next to the health bar that shows what character you're playing, and what skin you're using for the character.

* The ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' series from ''[[VideoGame/UltimaVI VI]]'' on, until it goes 3D in ''[[VideoGame/UltimaIX IX]]'' and just zooms in on people.

* Starting with ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon64'', ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' games have used the "multiple portraits for different emotions" version when they're not using GoingThroughTheMotions. You can tell how important a character is by how many portraits they have; {{Love Interest}}s will have five or six, while minor characters sometimes have only one.

* Skits in the ''Franchise/TalesSeries''. Most of the games also have these by each character's status in and out of battle. In the former case, they often have their expressions change based on what's happening to them.

* ''{{Suikoden}}''. Anyone who has a portrait is either important to the story in some way, or they're one of the 108 Stars of Destiny [[GottaCatchEmAll you can recruit]]. ''VideoGame/SuikodenV'' in particular takes things UpToEleven by giving most characters in the game multiple portraits to represent different moods.

* ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' used them in the first game onwards, and passed it on to the ''[[VideoGame/MegaManZero Zero]]'' and ''[[MegaManZX ZX]]'' games. Classic ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' followed suit in the SNES and UsefulNotes/PlayStation titles (one of which was later ported to GBA stateside). ''[[VideoGame/MegaManLegends Legends]]'' used them in places (not necessarily for dialogue, though). ''[[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork Battle Network]]'' and ''[[MegaManStarforce Starforce]]'', by virtue of being [=RPGs=], use them the most extensively.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' has drawn potraits of the characters appear during dialogue scenes, and even occasionally has the character portraits rip through the screen to punctuate a particularly emotional or tense moment.

** ''VideoGame/CatacombFantasyTrilogy'' and ''VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D'' both predate ''VideoGame/DOOM''[='=]s use of the device. ''DOOM'' made it into a somewhat useful gameplay element by having the marine's face turn and look in the direction from where he was taking fire.
