Alliance Traitors is the name given to refer to the yellow Human player in Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness and Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal.

During a single-player mission or multiplayer scenario, while other Human players each have a unique color assigned to them to represent one of the Seven Kingdoms of the Alliance of Lordaeron, the yellow color itself was not used or identified with any particular nation.

Therefore, it was given the nickname "Alliance Traitors" to distinguish it from the other nations.

It is used only once in Tides of Darkness, to mark the Runestone of Caer Darrow as capturable during its related mission, and once in Beyond the Dark Portal, to mark the handful of rescuable Alliance units in the mission The Heart of Evil. Rather ironically, neither of these are actually traitors to the Alliance.
