** Several Blue Clansmen (including the Blue King) also have the blue-as-black hair element. (Colorless Clansman Kuroh Yatogami's hair is drawn black, though. His brother Yukari Mishakuji, also a Colorless Clansman, actually has ([[AgentPeacock dyed]]) [[MulticoloredHair blue and purple hair]], though).

* Although the usage of shadow-based powers has been depicted more or less consistently as red in media, ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'''s Shadow Kraata were still purple colored. Also, in the line's early run and the 2015 reboot, purple is a secondary color for the usually black Earth element characters.

** 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.

** Gen 1 has an, ahem, interesting example of this. The original designers for Jynx gave her black skin, big lips, and blonde hair, but because people thought it was racist towards black people, they gave her purple skin instead.

** This style of chromatic thinking was employed much earlier in feudal Japan. Many people are familiar with the common "clad in black" ninja who used darkness as their cover, but the truth is that most ninja uniforms were actually navy blue, to match the glow of moonlight. Black strangely enough, stands out in the darkness.
