Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'' fic ''FanFic/{{Eternity}}'' many of the lines are colored blue or red, a few times just to differentiate the speakers, but most of the time it is used to show the mood or feelings regarding the described subject. In [[GoingNative Yonaga's]][=/=]Enterprise's case in particular, when she really hates something to the point of almost regressing to her old Pacific War-self, the red lines look corrupted via the WebOriginal/{{Zalgo}} font.

** 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.

* 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.
