    Picolo from early DBZ

    Also the title is a bit wordy, how about "Green Wear's Purple"

    I think the Gorn in that famous Star Trek episode wore purple.

    Nope, It was Gold. -Larek

    Norman Osborn's Green Goblin costume gives him the appearance of a green man wearing purple, although it's all a disguise.

    That's because when combining primary colors of red, yellow, and blue, and using those colors for the heroes, what's left is green, orange, and purple. As a result a lot of old comic book villains got green and purple color schemes. You can also add the Impossible Man to the list.

    (Of course, it's a little more complicated than that since the actual primary colors are magenta, yellow, and cyan.)

    There's a Supertrope dormant in ykttw right now: Common Color Combinations. It's got a few examples.

    I'll add:
    • Marvel Comics:
      • Drax the Destroyer. Is green, dresses in purple.
      • Many Skrulls when they're not shapeshifted.
