* Many [[MoeAnthropomorphism nations]] in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' have these, some of which are connected to the [[SupernaturalIsPurple supernatural or magical]]:
** [[NiceGuy Finland]], connected to him acting as Santa Claus in several instances.[[note]]As in European traditions, Santa Claus is said to live in Finnish Lapland.[[/note]]
** [[PsychopathicManchild Russia]], with his connection to [[AnIcePerson General Winter]], the AnthropomorphicPersonification of the Russian winter.
** [[IJustWantToBeNormal Iceland]], who not only has MysticalWhiteHair, but can see magical creatures that are InvisibleToNormals, and is best friends with a [[PollyWantsAMicrophone talking puffin]].

* Surprisingly common in ''Manga/DontenNiWarau'', though that is due to a good part of the main cast being of the Fuuma clan, known for their white hair and purple eyes (not albinos by birth, however). A more straight example of this trope is Botan, who is a [[spoiler:shikigami conjured for the sole purpose of sealing the Orochi 600 years prior to the story]].

* ''Manga/LaughingUnderTheClouds'':
** A good part of the main cast belongs to the Fuma clan, known for their white hair and purple eyes. They are not albinos from birth, however. The hair and eyes are a result of the rigorous training they go through to become full members of the clan.

* Judy Hopps in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' has purple eyes, distinct from all other members of her rather large family.
* [[PrincessClassic Princess Aurora]] from ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' has violet eyes, which are meant to symbolize ''rare'' beauty along with her sunshine golden hair and rose red lips. She's the only Franchise/DisneyPrincess with an abnormal eye color.
* Princess Odette from ''WesternAnimation/TheSwanPrincess'' has purple eyes as well, as a ShoutOut to the above, as well as adding to her own beauty and her swan motif.
* A villainous example exists in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', as Vanessa has violet eyes. This also is one of the first signs that she isn't what she appears to be.
* [[BigBad Dr. Facilier]] in ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' has purple eyes. They match his belly shirt. WordOfGod says that of the three Mardi Gras colors, purple was chosen for him because it's the most [[SupernaturalIsPurple "unnatural"]].
* Amalthea, the human version of the titular '' WesternAnimation/TheLastUnicorn'', has purple eyes when she becomes human; they are seen as being extremely rare and beautiful.
* Megara in ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' has violet eyes, and wears a violet dress to match - they also go well with her FemmeFatale charms.
* Non-human example: Pompom from Disney/CinderellaIIDreamsComeTrue. Remarkable for a cat, and they seem to be a symbol for her evilness. Also fits nicely in how she is [[Disney/{{Cinderella}} Lucifer]] [[note]][[FallenAngel No, not that Lucifer]][[/note]]'s white-furred, purple-eyed, female counterpart to his being black-furred, green-eyed.

evilness. Also fits nicely in how she is [[Disney/{{Cinderella}} Lucifer]] [[note]][[FallenAngel No, not that Lucifer]][[/note]]'s white-furred, purple-eyed, female counterpart to his being black-furred, green-eyed (and to top it off, he has [[YellowEyesOfSneakiness yellow sclerae]] indicating his evilness - while in Pom-Pom's case her purple eyes do). She also accentuates them with purple eye-shadow, and mascara.

Interestingly, in hindsight [[spoiler: they are a clue to her allegiance to the bad guy Hades, since in the Disney universe purple mostly stands for evilness and rose red lips. She's she turns out to work for Hades. She turns out good / good-hearted in the only Franchise/DisneyPrincess with an abnormal eye color.
end though, reversing the trope of purple eyes representing evilness in Disney.]]

beautiful.
* A villainous ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'': Another example exists of purple eyes representing evilness in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', as the Disney world: Vanessa (Ursula's human alter-ego) has violet eyes. This also is one of the first signs that she isn't what she appears to be.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': While on the TV show his eyes were more of an [[OccultBlueEyes occult blue]] shade, in the canon comic "Antique" and the non-canon "Spike vs. Dracula" series {{Dracula}}'s eyes are purple. Dracula, besides being of course ''the'' most well-known vampire, is unique amongst Buffyverse vampires. He is able to easily hypnotize people and put them under his thrall, he can shapeshift into various forms (wolf, bat, panther, bees, mist), he can come back from being staked, and he does not have the [[GameFace bumpy face]] of common vampires but does always have fangs.

* Kamui in the ''Manga/{{X1999}}'' manga has blueish purple eyes (they are hazel in the anime for some reason) and certainly fits the [[TheChosenOne very special]] and mysteriously {{Badass}}' criteria.

* 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.
