* A subtle example: in ''XCOMEnemyUnknown'', every time abduction sites are located, or a UFO is detected, a small warning alarm goes off (code yellow). When a terror site occurs, a louder, more insistent alarm is trigger (code red). The "Activation" cutscene at the beginning of the game also shows the red alert as soldiers are scrambled for the first time.
** A less subtle example happens in the Enemy Within expansion during the XCOM [[HoldTheLine Base Defense]] mission. [[MissionControl Bradford]] even states "Security Status RED" before fighting off an attacker.

** They avoided Red Alert, despite many of its characters being DangerouslyGenreSavvy, primarily because it's set in the modern era or TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture; the human starships use General Quarters.

** In TheThrawnTrilogy, Pellaeon explains to [[MagnificentBastard Grand Admiral Thrawn]] that the wing commander of the scout ships is fairly certain he eluded pursuit, but that he ordered the sentry ships to yellow alert anyway. Thrawn opines that if they were from the [[LaResistance Rebellion]] (as he [[InsistentTerminology insists]] on calling [[TheAlliance the New Republic]]), the ships didn't lose their pursuers. Pellaeon asks if they should go to red, to which Thrawn remarks "There's time."
