'''Purple Eyes''', also called "violet", "lavender/lilac" or "amethyst" (depending on the shade) are a type of TechnicolorEyes used in fiction as an indicator that a character is very special, rare, unique, and/or somehow possessed of strange or mysterious talents or heritage. These connotations mean that it's mostly possessed by characters that are either key to the plot, or need to stand out from the background. It is also a popular MarySue eye color for the same reasons.

* [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Zack]] is often given violet eyes in fanfics, most likely due to the non-canon OVA Last Order. He fits, in that he's TheAce and one of the strongest people in the world without having been the product of prenatal experiment, but his canon eye color is blue. His theme on the CrisisCore soundtrack is even called ''Sky Blue Eyes''.
