** Roguelikes with tileset graphics can play this trope straight. As an example, ''Videogame/DoomTheRoguelike'' will face the player with "nightmare" demons, imps, cacodemons, arachnotrons and even arch-viles on higher difficulties and in deeper levels. The difference is not only their color being changed from whatever the original was to dark blue - these enemies are also faster and tougher, they deal a lot more damage, and worst of all, they make no sounds in a game where detection of out-of-sight-enemies by their signature sound is very helpful at least. To top this off, all four categories of former humans also get their elite (i.e. tougher, more damaging and quiet) versions, but since these elite versions differ only by a dark blue outline, they do not really fall under this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* The fourth edition of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' and its player base have been noted for actively embracing the concept of "reskinning" powers, monsters, and potentially even entire character classes to allow for more variety in play -- that is, basically taking one mechanic, stat block or the like and simply reusing it as-is (with perhaps some minor tweaks along the way) to represent something potentially ''described'' entirely differently from the original.

* ''PrimalRage'' does this for the stages where you're fighting the character you chose to play as. Does have a benefit there as it helps you stay sure of who's who. In addition, Blizzard and Chaos seem to be palette swaps of each other, as do Sauron and Diablo.

* Invoked in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' with Albedo, the InsufferableGenius and former apprentice of Azmuth made an improved version of the omnitrix and began to masquerade as Ben to trash his reputation. At the end of the episode, Azmuth appears and breaks his version, getting him stuck in a ShapeShifterModeLock of Ben, except with white hair, a red jacket, and brown eyes.

* ''Toys/TheTrashPack'', ''Toys/{{Shopkins}}'', and ''Toys/TheGrosseryGang'', all blind bag toys by Moose Toys, gives each character more than one color scheme, treating them like an extra figure to collect. ''The Trash Pack'' has three minimum color palettes, while the other two have a minimum of two. Some special packages gives existing figures exclusive colors that can only be found in those packages.

* Huey, Dewey, and Louie tend to dress identically but for color in ''DuckTales'' and various DonaldDuck shorts. They vary it up a bit more in ''QuackPack'', though their preferred colors stay.

** However, the most popular examples of palette swaps in the series are shiny Pokemon, an extremely rare variant from the Pokemon's normal colors. The colors themselves range from being only slightly lighter or slightly darker then the original, to very dramatic examples, but due to the fact that they're incredibly rare (roughly a 1 in 8192 chance without modifications...). They're highly prized by collectors. Even so, they're functionally no different then regularly colored Pokemon.
** Then Gen VI came around and introduced several lines revolving around Palette Swaps: [[CaptainGeographic Vivillon]], [[PlantPerson the Flabebe line]], and [[BizarreSexualDimorphism Meowstic]].
