5x5 Quad-color Python
The term "Python" usually describes a rope pattern that winds around the entire cube in a repeating pattern of turn-right, turn-left, straight.
It was surprisingly difficult to devise a workable color scheme because the off-center Pythons have two different sets of constraints, one for the face cubies and another for the edge cubies.
Other than the obvious substitution of different faces (ie: reflections or rotations) I could identify only two schemes. The two cubes below show how the two schemes have the same colors on each face, just in a different order:
