* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsX'', information in Notices often tends to presented in this - for example, medal, gem and Keyblade names will be presented in the color of their element (Magic - Blue, Strength - Red, Speed - Green), information they want you to pay particular attention to will be a dark orange, and references to boosted strength or defense will be presented in a bright yellow, which is also true on medals themselves with boosted stats.

* Various subsets of ''Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos'' use this; for example, there's [[http://quiaegosicdico.blogspot.com/ A Lack of Lexicon]], which has each character speak in a different font; at one point, the font actually changes in colour as it reveals one character (jokingly) masquerading as another.
