** Surprisingly, stars that emit magenta light, most likely, do exist; but this has nothing to do with high energies, it's just a combination of blue and red spectral lines. Those stars are, in fact, the dimmest of all visibly glowing stars, the T-dwarfs.

* 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]].

* 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 him over. 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.

* ''Literature/TheSeventhTower'''s primary magic system relies heavily on HardLight and ColorCodedWizardry, with violet being the most powerful color and, by extension, the color of the highest caste of [[TheMagocracy the Chosen]]. Furthermore, whoever can master the magic of [[CosmicKeystone the Violet Keystone]] is, by extension, the rightful Emperor/Empress of the Chosen [[spoiler: as [[TheHero Tal]] finds out when it turns out the sunstone he's been carrying around and using to fuel his magic for most of the series ''is'' the lost Keystone...]].

* 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.

* ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' and ''VideoGame/XCOM2'' represent the usage of various psionic powers of both your and enemy soldiers as weird, tentacly shapes of purple and black something, and uses the combination of purple and black as a universal stand-in for "related to psionics." Soldiers who develop psionic powers also gain PurpleEyes [[LockedIntoStrangeness along with]] MysticalWhiteHair, though you can revert this on the character customization screen. The [[MagicKnight Templars]] in the ''XCOM 2: War of the Chosen'' expansion default to a vivid purple uniform color, and the trope is even lampshaded by one of the titular Chosen.

** 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 "wwhite science" given his ArbitrarySkepticism and typing quirk).
