* When Lockheed built the [[{{CoolPlane}} F-117 Nighthawk Stealth fighter]], they first painted it in a pastel-like camo scheme that would help it hide during daylight bombing missions. When the Air Force insisted on night bombing and a black paint scheme, Lockheed recommended a dark royal blue color as ''black'' paint would [[RealityIsUnrealistic stand out against the night sky]]. The Air Force refused and the F-117 (as well as Northrop Grumman's B-2 bomber) has flown in black ever since.

Much like HollywoodDarkness, purple is often used as a stand-in for black in comics and animation. This is predominantly because purple is easier to shade quickly and thus give the appearance of three-dimensionality; solid black objects in animation (and RealLife; see [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vantablack) Vantablack]]) lack contours and look very flat.

His brother Yukari Mishakuji, also a Colorless Clansman, actually has ([[AgentPeacock dyed]]) [[MulticoloredHair blue and purple hair]], though).
