The Monaural AV Cable (モノラルAVケーブル) for the Sega Saturn is the official method of connecting a Saturn to a television via RCA video (yellow) and audio (white) standards

The reason for this cable's existence is not fully understood, as all Japanese Saturn consoles were bundled with Stereo AV Cables, which fulfill exactly the same functions (and were sold separately). What differs between the two is the omittance here of the red "right audio channel" cable for stereo sound, but given as each cable is plugged in separately, it does not make the Stereo AV Cable incompatible with mono televisions. Likewise the Saturn can be configured via the settings screen to output audio in mono, and thus only use the white lead.
