As of Patch 3.3.0, players are able to choose what colors appear for the player's, allied, neutral and enemy units under options.[3] There is also a color intensity slider.

In single-player missions, colors are not explicitly associated with force names, but red terrans are usually The Dominion, blue are Raynor's Raiders, and pink Mira's Mercs. Moebius Corps are yellow and the Covert Ops Crew are black terran and use a different skin set. Kerrigan's Swarm is consistently colored purple in the single player campaigns, with feral zerg usually being colored orange and Amon Brood being colored red. In the Legacy of the Void campaign, player controlled protoss Daelaam are colored blue or teal, Purifiers are colored orange, and Nerazim are purple. Both Tal'darim and corrupted Khalai are red. The Tal'darim protoss faction are teal/aqua in the Wings of Liberty campaign, blue in Heart of the Swarm, and given their own red skins in Legacy of the Void.
