* A young man known only as 'Red' in the Literature/PhilipMarlowe novel ''Farewell, My Lovely'' has violet eyes. Marlowe describes them as 'the eyes you never see, that you only read about.'

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'' has main antagonist TheEmperor, with very pretty purple eyes (he's always had them, but considering the graphical format of the game, it's been hard to tell until {{Dissidia}}). In both games he is a very powerful sorcerer and [[TheChessmaster chessmaster]], so it fits the trope...but it's also likely to have been chosen simply because of how well it goes with the rest of his mostly-golden-with-purple-accents character design.

* [[TheLancer Mikleo]] of ''VideoGame/TalesofZestiria'' has these. As a powerful [[MakingASplash water]] seraph, as well as the best friend of TheChosenOne, it fits. [[spoiler: It also is possibly a hint to the role he unwillingly and unknowingly played in starting the Age of Chaos and creating the [[BigBad Lord of Calamity]].]]

** Though rare in other individuals, Nina Einstein also has them, as does Leila Malkal in the "Akito the Exiled" OVA. This may or may not be meant to indicate their descent from a cadet branch of the royal family, which would make sense given the staggering number of wives each emperor weds and these characters' status as members of the nobility. However, Marianne vi Britannia is more difficult to explain, as we are told the emperor's marriage to a commoner caused difficulty in court. Despite her noble status coming from marriage and not from birth, she also displays the purple eyes.

** Though rare in other individuals, Nina Einstein also Several royals (Schneizel, Euphie, Nunnally) and several non-royal characters (Nina, [[Anime/CodeGeassAkitoTheExiled Leila]], Marianne (royal by marriage) have light lavender eyes, but true amethyst purple eyes are much rarer - Lelouch has them, as does Leila Malkal in the "Akito Emperor, and the Exiled" OVA. This may or may not be meant to indicate their descent from a cadet branch of the royal family, which would make sense given the staggering number of wives each emperor weds and these characters' status as members of the nobility. However, Marianne vi Britannia is more difficult to explain, as we Crown Prince Odysseus. Notably, Rolo's eyes are told the emperor's marriage to a commoner caused difficulty in court. Despite her noble status coming from marriage and not from birth, she also displays the amethyst purple eyes.- adding weight to the fan theory that he might have actually been Nunnally's twin, separated at birth.

* Nodoka Miyazaki in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', in going with her [[ShrinkingViolet violet motif]] and [[CurtainsMatchTheWindow hair color]], contrasting the lead heroine's lighter blue and green. Having darker and more mysterious eyes may be some metaphor for inner strength or a type of enigmatic, hidden bravery, since she (despite being seen as meek otherwise) often enters such a state when [[PeekABangs pulling her hair away]]. After she [[spoiler:[[TookALevelInBadass enters the magical world]]]] Nodoka makes it clear she belongs in this trope as of chapter 280. '[[spoiler:[[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v31/c280/03.html "I am Nodoka Miyazaki, and from here I begin my counter attack>"]]]]' Badass.

* Every time Yennefer from Main/TheWitcher is described, her purple eyes get a mention, highlighting either her being a [[SupernaturalIsPurple sorceress]] of considerable power or the fact the protagonist finds her a HotWitch. Possibly both. Nobody else (save Geralt himself, whose eyes are also unusual) gets a description of their eyes.
