* In the TV adaptation of Literature/{{Discworld}}'s ''Film/TheColourOfMagic'', the magic is represented as purple, and Rincewind's blue eyes suddenly turn this sheen as a sign of the spell trying to take over him. In the books the color of magic is actually the [[FictionalColor fictional 8th color, octarine]], but it's noted in the book to be outside the visible spectrum, so a visible color was chosen.

* Taken quite literally in the 1990 looseleaf edition of ''Who's Who in the DCUniverse'', which color-coded the borders of the entries. Heroes got red trim, villains were in black, supporting cast in blue, technology in yellow, and geography in green. Supernatural items and characters...were purple.

* In''ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace'', Nimue always wears purple. That said, Merlin wears orange and Morgan le Fay, like the rest of her family, wears green.

** [[LadyOfBlackMagic Rose Lalonde]] types with purple text, has PurpleEyes, and often wears purple clothing. She has a deep interest in [[EldritchAbomination grimdark hororterrors]] and dual-wields [[MagicWand magic wands]].
** Eridan Ampora wears a purple cape, has a purple tuft in his hair, and has [[AlienBlood purple blood]]. He has quite an interest in wizards, even becoming a practitioner of BlackMagic (though he claims magic isn't real and insists on referring to it as "white science").

* Creator/DennisWheatley, author of atmospheric horror stories such as Literature/TheDevilRidesOut, asserted that purple or magenta light heralded the manifestation of spirits of evil. As he was an associate of Creator/AleisterCrowley, it can be assumed he learnt this from the Master.

* in ''Anime/{{K}}'', the Clansmen have powers that manifest in the colors of their Clans, but the Colorless Clan's powers appear purple, as opposed to white - [[spoiler: possibly to distinguish them, since a former Colorless Clansman joins the Silver Clan (''hakugin'', or "white-silver", in Japanese), and uses both colors at separate times]].

** The Horrorterrors kind of fit this trope. They're giant [[{{EldritchAbomination}} eldritch abominations]] and their [[{{AlienBlood}} blood]] is purple.
