This trope can apply whether the [[ColorCodedMultiplayer multiplayer is cooperative or competitive.]] It can also apply to a MirrorMatch with a computer controlled opponent as long as it is using the same character as the player.

** ''Gauntlet'' and ''Gauntlet II'' differentiated the party members by coloring them red, blue, yellow and green, and made it clear on the arcade cabinet control panels which of the four players was which color.

** ''Gauntlet'' and ''Gauntlet II'' differentiated the party members by coloring them red, blue, yellow and green, and made it clear on the arcade cabinet control panels which of the four players was which color. In ''Gauntlet'', each character had their own unique color: Warrior wore red, Valkyrie wore blue, Wizard wore yellow, and Elf wore green. In the sequel, multiple players could play as the same class/character, unlike in the original, so the colors now represented their player position: Player 1 wore red, Player 2 wore blue, Player 3 wore yellow, and Player 4 wore green.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''. PaletteSwap was the only way of distinguishing players in the first game, with the second offering a (rarely used) Elite playermodel, and the third finally adding [[AndYourRewardIsClothes a number of unlockable armor customizations]] (all of which are still rather generic).
** ''VideoGame/HaloZero'' used this too.
** Its predecessor, ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'', also had human players all look the same, but player sprites were split in two (primarily in order to avert FightInTheNude) so that the color of one's shirt and pants could be set separately, to denote both the individual player and the player's team.
** Averted in co-op play in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}''. Player 1 is the Chief, Player 2 is the Arbiter.
