* Chlorine gas is a particularly noxious respiratory irritant that just so happens to be yellowish green in color. It was the first substance used in chemical warfare in UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, though both deadlier and less easily detectable gases were used later on. It has often been accidentally released when household bleach gets mixed with acid.



* In nature, bright colors are often a color code for things that are venomous (see many species of amphibians with venom). Bright blue in particular is an appetite suppressor, as no foods humans consume are naturally that shade (blueberries are coloured indigo) and things that are blue are usually venomous. Dietitians will advise people wishing to lose weight to eat on blue plates, for example. Purple, being close to blue in the spectrum, shares some of blue's appetite-averting effects.

** Running through the rest of that column of the periodic table: Fluorine is highly toxic and yellow. Bromine is either a red-brown liquid or a bright orange gas. Iodine is bright purple, as noted elsewhere on this page. Astatine would be black, but it's so radioactive that a sample large enough for us to see [[StuffBlowingUp would promptly explode in a nuclear fireball]]. Be careful with halogens, everyone.

* Many chromium compounds are bright coloured (that's why this element is called so - 'chroma' means 'colour' in Greek). Hexavalent chromium compounds are very toxic.

* Throughout the ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' series, the various color-coded potions do a variety of things, but the green potion is always poison, and a poisoned character's health bar turns green. Furthermore, some of the games had green swamps that would poison your character if you walked through them without special swamp boots (also green).
