* ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime2Echoes'' includes the purple blob-shooting Dark Beam that can [[FreezeRay freeze enemies]] with charged shots. [[DarkWorld Dark Aether]] is visually a copy of Light Aether, but darker and purplier, and is home to the dark purple Ing. Purple-colored doors require the Dark Beam to open them.

* There is some debate over whether or not SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker originally wore a purple or black suit. The purple suit has become iconic in the decades since, although famed artist Alex Ross subscribes to the theory that the Joker's suit was originally intended to be black with purple highlights, so that his chalk-white face would stand out as much as possible. Accordingly, pretty much all of Ross' (colored) drawings of the Joker feature him in black instead of the widely-accepted purple.

** Two specific Black Rangers are interesting zig-zaggings of this trope: [[Series/ChourikiSentaiOhranger King Ranger]] and [[Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger Abare Black]]. Because they are both individual add-ons to their respective teams, they get a lot of gold on them. Therefore, their energies are often, maybe more often than not, portrayed as gold in color, but oftentimes purple as well. Not to mention their respective Zords were more gold in color than they were black. This was the main reason that King Ranger's Power Ranger counterpart is called the Gold Ranger instead. [[Series/JukenSentaiGekiranger Black Lion Rio]], who is a Ranger-like main villain [[spoiler: turned ally]] also follows the same rules as the previous two Black Rangers: black suit with a lot of gold, with his Zord following the same color scheme, and alternates between purple and gold as his energy color.

* In ''JojosBizzareAdventure'' Part 6, the main villain Enricco Pucci wears a black Catholic priest robe but everywhere, it looks like it is purple. But there are situations where priests wear purple robes so his robe might actually be purple.

* In ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', Black Rangers tend to have purple motifs in their costumes, energy weapons (particularly noticeable when [[PowerGlows they glow]]), and the like. Certain times, however, they avert it by giving the Black Ranger a gray or white aura, when there's no Silver or White Ranger on the team....usually[[note]]Series/GougouSentaiBoukenger had both a Black and Silver Ranger on the team, and Black primarily did get purple, but in cases such as some roll calls, Black gets the white aura, while Silver, to evoke the emergency lights of his design and theme, gets a darker red aura[[/note]].

** But averted in that the rare Violet Ranger will never be mistaken for a Black Ranger and vice-versa - ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'' even had both colors in its roster. Naturally, the Black Ranger's shade of purple is a darker shade or a paler lavender-ish shade.

** The latest non-core Black Ranger, [[Series/DoubutsuSentaiZyuohger Zyuoh TheWorld]], is another zigzag. As a Black Ranger, he's represented with the usual purple energy (albeit paler compared to past examples), but also of black smoky energy usually more reserved with the darkness motifs of villains, even when he turned good. The zag to that zig is that he's ''also'' represented by two other colors, gold and silver (which itself is sometimes represented with bluish shades in the franchise, such as this case), making him more of a multi-colored Ranger with Black as his primary color.
