* Subverted in ''Literature/TheFourGospels'', {{Jesus}} was dressed with purple robe and was given a crown made of thorn by the Romans, both of which are symbols of royalty, but their purpose was to mock him. However, considering [[PhysicalGod what exactly he is]] and [[BackFromTheDead what happened to him later on]], this is ultimately played straight.

* The titular cyborg {{Kaiju}} of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', Unit 01, is coloured mostly head-to-toe in a shade of bright violet. While it goes without saying that a beast of that size would be a force to be reckoned with, Unit 01 surpasses all other {{Kaiju}} in the series, [[NoHoldsBarredBeatDown curb-stomping]] foes others find [[TheJuggernaut impossible to even scratch]], shrugging off [[NukeEm nuclear-level explosions]], and even [[spoiler: using its [[PhysicalGod godlike powers]] to cause a [[ApocalypseHow Class 5 or Class 6]] apocalypse because it's actually powered by the mind of the protagonist's [[MamaBear mother]], and the world had upset her son, so she [[UnstoppableRage went ballistic]]]].

* [[Creator/DavidTennant Kilgrave]] in ''Series/JessicaJones2015'' is never called the "Purple Man" like his Comics counterpart. However, his wardrobe is primarily composed of purple colors. In addition, the appearance of purple in any shot almost always indicates his arrival or the presence of one of his agents. Whenever Jessica has a flashback to her time under Kilgrave's control her memories tend to be tinted purple, and it is a good indication whether someone's dealing with trauma from an encounter with him, as Hope's prison attack makes clear.
