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.

* 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.

* 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.

* Creator/TelltaleGames often gives each important character's subtitles their own color. Every game based on ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'' makes the current player character's speech white, while everyone else's speech is highlighted by a unique color to indicate their importance. ''VideoGame/TalesFromTheBorderlands'' features two main characters; [[PinkGirlBlueBoy the male lead has blue text while the female lead has pink text]].



* Whenever ''{{Undertale}}'' mentions its BigBad, they put his name in allcaps and in red text like so: [[INeededARedLink ASGORE]].
