* In ''VideoGame/{{Achron}}'', units are depicted as mostly-translucent silhouettes with edges that glow with the unit's team colour. This is an [[JustifiedTrope interface concession]] to make your troops easier to spot: according to the setting, all three of the species use advanced camouflage on their military units, making them near invisible. This doubles as an explanation for why your units have extremely short sight (insofar as they have RTS-standard near-blind line of sight radii). [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything You can actually ''hear'' battles occurring outside your vision radius.]]

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Living Shards are described as having faint glowing lines on them, [[spoiler:the color of which seems to correspond to the spren type (Syl is blue, and Pattern is blood-red)]]. This is all but stated to be why the Shards of the Knights Radiant in one of Dalinar's visions lost their glow upon being abandoned by their holders: [[spoiler:they abandoned their Words, killing the spren]].

** [[TropeNamer Named, of course]], after the computer world of ''TRON'', which, being a representation of technology itself, has pretty much everything and every character covered in them - the effect earned ''TRON'' an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward nomination for Best Costume. In that universe, a Program's circuitry lines appear to be an identifier with the colors and patterns communicating their position, function, system of origin, and [[ColorCodedArmies loyalties within a system]].

In that universe, a Program's circuitry lines appear to be an identifier with the colors and patterns communicating their position, function, system of origin, and [[ColorCodedArmies loyalties within a system]].



** It shouldn't seem surprising that ''Film/TronLegacy'', the movie sequel, uses this. What is surprising is how controlled this effect is. On a special note, all TronLines on characters were achieved using flexible light strips built into the clothing. Not one line is CGI.

* In ''Fanfic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'', Psychelian bodysuits emit these whenever a Psyche is part of the mindlink. Mentioned by Hefty in "Inside The Game" when he visits a ''TRON''-like world where basically that is a given among its people.
