* {{X-COM}} recruits from around the world, with recruit names randomly drawn from British/American (hard to distinguish), German, French, Japanese, and Russian pools. The soldiers themselves [[WithThisHerring all suck about equally.]]
** In the sequel, Terror From The Deep, the Japanese names are changed to Spanish. They are probably easier to distinguish by the European/American players.

Presumably non-English localizations also have a variety of accents present.

* In ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' the companions the player has depends on the class they choose. Usually its two humans, two or three aliens and a droid. Most notable is the Republic Trooper's Havok Squad, which (not counting the player) consists of only one human (who happens to be an Imperial defector) while the others consist of three aliens and an especially patriotic droid.

** The [[VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown Firaxis remake]] has this as well, also adding the soldier's national flag on the uniform. However, the game allows you to change the appearance and name of any soldier, so there's nothing preventing a man with a Japanese name to look like a ScaryBlackMan. Furthermore, all soldiers have standard American accents despite their nationality. Note: this is from a company whose latest [[VideoGame/{{Civilization}} big hit]] is noted for authentic languages. The UpdatedRerelease, ''Enemy Within'', does offer more than just standard American accents, which some contain Spanish, French, Russian.

* The international organization known as ''[[VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} Overwatch]]'' recruits from all over the world. The characters thus far are: Tracer (British), Reaper (Unknown), Widowmaker (French), Winston (a colony on the Moon), Pharah (Egyptian), Reinhardt (German), Symmetra (Indian), Torbjorn (Swedish), Bastion (robot), Hanzo (Japanese), Mercy (Swiss), Zenyatta (robot...monk?), Zarya (Russian), [=McCree=] (American Southwest), Soldier: 76 (American), Lúcio (Brazilian), Junkrat and Roadhog (both Australian), Genji (Nepalese), Mei (Chinese), and D.Va (Korean).
* ''AssassinsCreed'': the Assassins and Templars in general qualify as this, though the composition of each group depends greatly on which game it is. In [[AssassinsCreedI the first game]], the Templars are the closest fit, comprised of both Saracens and Crusaders, and the Crusaders themselves include French, Germans, and English. In [[AssassinsCreed III]], the player character is half-Mohawk and half-English, his mentor is a former slave, and the Assassin recruits include a French Canadian, a German, and an Irishman. It gets more obvious in ''AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag'' since the Assassins there are much more visibly diverse: their Mentor is Mayan, your Assassin contacts include Englishmen, black Africans, and Taino, and the player character himself is explicitly Welsh. Opposite them, the Caribbean Templars are led by a Spaniard and include Englishmen, a Frenchmen, and a minor character who is Chinese. In ''AssassinsCreedRogue'', it's even more obvious--at the start of the game, the Colonial Assassins are led by a black African former slave (the same one from ''III'', plus two others: one Haitian, one Trinidadian), two Irishmen (including the player character), a white American woman, and a Maliseet Native American.
