The following is a list of games which make use of PPU register $2001's colour emphasis bits (D7 to D5):

Commercial

  • Felix the Cat uses all 3 emphasis bits to dim the entire screen
  • Final Fantasy rapidly sets and clears all 3 emphasis bits to flash the screen when going into a battle screen or the menus by pressing start or select.
  • Final Fantasy II (J) rapidly sets and clears all 3 emphasis bits to flash the screen
  • The Immortal uses all 3 emphasis bits to dim the entire screen
  • James Bond Jr uses all 3 emphasis bits to dim the entire screen
  • The Jungle Book uses all 3 emphasis bits to dim the entire screen
  • Just Breed uses all 3 emphasis bits to dim the entire screen
  • The Lion King (E) uses all 3 emphasis bits to dim the entire screen
  • Magician uses all 3 emphasis bits to dim the entire screen
  • Noah's Ark (E) uses blue emphasis combined with grayscale mode to put part of the level underwater
  • Rockman 4 Minus Infinity romhack during Brightman's stage to darken areas farther away from Mega Man
