* SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}. In fact, he currently has ''two'': one "normal" (yellow, with handwritten text, like his speech bubbles) and one more rational (white, with typewriter-like text), which dialogue between themselves as much (or even more, DependingOnTheWriter) as they do with 'Pool. It is hinted that each of them represents one of his brain's hemispheres, as seen in a ''Comicbook/DarkReign'' story involving him fighting Bullseye-as-Hawkeye: he has an arrow stuck in his head that does not let him think straight. When he removes it, his yellow boxes come back normally, but his white box blabs incoherently for a while.

Captions have been used in the comics medium to convey narration, description, and setting. It has become a recent trend in Western comics, starting from approximately the DarkAge, to represent characters' thoughts with captions as opposed to {{thought bubble}}s, a comic-book equivalent of the cinematic technique of first-person narrative voice-over.

* In ''BoosterGold'' it goes a little further than just different color and font, showing a little symbol in the caption to let you know who it is. Rip Hunter's thought captions are red with a green infinity symbol while BoosterGold is yellow with a blue star.
