* ''{{Gungnir}}''. Though it's unique in that there's only one icon for the player (who can choose which unit to move and/or attack, instead of being forced to use only one) and that all player-controlled units have their own icon that says how long they have until the act again. Though the player can move anyone before the icon lights back up again, it reduces vitality temporarily.

* ''Videogame/ProjectXZone'' displays a lineup of units whose turns are coming up on the 3DS's bottom screen. In addition, each unit has a number over its head indicating its position in the queue.

* ''LegendOfHeroesVI: Trails in the Sky'' has a stack showing everyone's turn order for (depending on how many enemies are present) two or three 'rounds', and highlights where a character's next action will be after taking their turn (which varies depending on what they do). It also has icons next to some turns indicating that whoever acts then will get a bonus effect, such as a STR boost or guaranteed CriticalHit. Since the LimitBreak style attack can be triggered at any time and allow the user to act immediately, it's useful to deny an enemy such a bonus and make use of it yourself.

* Another is that someone's speed stat tends to become more prominent, as [[CombatantCooldownSystem not only will faster characters get turns sooner, but can often get multiple turns within a round]].

* The third and fourth VideoGame/PennyArcadeAdventures games use a system very similar to Grandia, with the exception that enemies can get their turns pushed back to a lesser degree even if their icon isn't currently between CMD and ACT and there's a lot more attacks that can interrupt enemy turns, some of them even targetting the entire enemy party.

** ''VideoGame/ChildOfLight'' also features a similar action bar to ''Grandia'', with a "Wait" phase and a "Cast" phase. If a character is damaged during the "Cast" phase, their attack is interrupted entirely. There are also certain statuses that slow characters on the "Wait" phase, stop them temporarily, or push them back on the "Wait" phase. The player can also use a firefly to blind foes, which slows them on ''both'' the "Wait" and "Cast" phases.

* ''VideoGame/PennyArcadeAdventures 3'' has a variation where every character's icon runs along the top of the screen and they get to go once they reach the edge (being turn based, everyone else freezes until that character makes a move). Speedier characters move through this queue faster and can overtake slower characters, so it's not always easy to eyeball who will be next.
