Colors are used to distinguish different players in StarCraft and StarCraft II.


In multiplayer matches, players cannot choose their own color before a game starts.

Players are able to choose their color before a custom match starts.

There are eight player colors available in games of less than 7 players: red, blue, teal, purple, yellow, orange, green and pink. More colors are available in games with 8 players. Note how units are specifically colored on certain so that they don't blend into the background.
