** Some attacks in the game are special, in blue or orange. Thus, when they're mentioned, the relevant color is used. [[spoiler:Which provides a moment of foreshadowing when Sans mentions his brother's own special blue attack: he uses a different shade of blue, and indeed the attack is different.]]

* Textbooks frequently use '''boldface''' and/or colored lettering to call attention to new vocabulary words when they're first used and defined, and ''italics'' for subsequent uses of such terms. Likewise, academic exams may use '''boldface''' to highlight key instructions within a short-answer question, e.g.: "Provide '''two examples''' of _______________."

This happens mostly in video games, especially those that lack voice acting, but can occur in comics and other media from time to time. The World Wide Web, especially, invokes this for identifying hyperlinks (well, usually). Also common in subtitled anime, to differentiate characters.

Added DiffLines:

* Key terms appear in a different color in ''VideoGame/ArNosurgeOdeToAnUnbornStar''. In an interesting take on the trope, the player can press a button to bring up a glossary to describe the term in question. The game even points out which terms you've encountered before. Since this is a sequel to a game that was on a different platform, it makes so that the characters don't have to drop quite the level of in-character exposition that would otherwise be necessary.

Added DiffLines:

* The vast majority of text file editors integrate some form of "syntax highlighting", in which the editor will recognize the programming language used in the open file and display things like keywords and numbers in different colors than the rest of the code, so as to make the code easier to read.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' highlights the name of the monster king [[LargeAndInCharge Asgore]] by making his name bold, all caps, and blood red the first few times he's mentioned. This gradually stops as the player gets closer to reaching him.
