Some stories begin in schools, some at a park or in someone's apartment. This one starts on a spaceship.

''Law of Purple'' is a sci-fi webcomic. It centers around the Fayse family, a set of siblings from the planet Caligula, where race is determined by one's ear shape, not skin color. They crash-land on Earth and quickly make their first real friends since they left their home world. It can be found [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/ here]]

* ButWeUsedACondom: [[spoiler:Lette's mother was in her mid-forties and using two kinds of birth control when she became pregnant with Lette. This is why Lette is about the same age as her nephew.]]
* TheCaligula: Silver. Possibly lampshaded, as the planet he's the king of is called Caligula.

* ColonelBadass: Synn [[spoiler:used to be this before he went MIA.]]
* ComicBookTime: Averted.

* DamselOutOfDistress: [[spoiler:Lette, in Dogs of War. The only reason she didn't escape earlier was her not knowing how to fly a spaceship.]]
* DarkSkinnedBlond: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=925 Apparently possible on Myrania]]

* EloquentInMyNativeTongue: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=328 Thud puts it beautifully.]]
* EntitledToHaveYou: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=931 Shishi]] [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=933 clearly feels this way about Blue.]] Apparently it's cultural for Myranian women to feel that way.
** Nick also feels like this towards Lette a bit, unable to get that she will ''never'' be interested.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Silver may be a real nasty piece of work, but [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=962 he doesn't like causing unnecessary suffering]] purely ForTheEvulz (though his definition of "necessary" suffering still includes a ''lot'' of nasty stuff).
* EvilLaugh: Lette, in [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=730 this]] comic. And she pulls it off beautifully.
* {{Expy}}: The author freely admits that Lette's design is based on Kaiba from ''Anime/YuGiOh''. She's even done Kaiba {{Cosplay}}.
** Also, [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1142 Juni is Alister, and Carli/Carly/Carleigh is Zigfreid von Schroeder]]
** Robbie's dad ''heavily'' resembles [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Gendo Ikari]], to the point that one character explicitly compares them, especially after learning that [[spoiler:he kicked Robbie out for being gay]]. Word of God even mentions a Yui analog as well.
** [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1214 Lynnah's parents]] are basically [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina and Yoko]].
* ExpressiveEars: 2nd kind Caligulans seem to have a tendency towards ear-wiggling when feeling playful.
* FaceHeelTurn: Synn, before the start of the comic, although it's not clear how bad he really was before {{Heel Face Turn}}ing back.
* {{Fanservice}}: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=19]] [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=195]][[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=278]] [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=279]] [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=301]] [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=768]] [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=944]]. Please note that the page titles for several of these mention their fanserviceyness.
* FantasticRacism: Most Caligulans with round ears (1st kind) have this to Caligulans with pointy/elf ears (2nd kind).
* FillerStrips: Usually very amusing ones.
* GenderRestrictedAbility: Myranian women can access and manipulate peoples' nervous systems. Men cannot.
* TheGlassesGottaGo: Dex looks like the very attractive Lette when his glasses are removed.
* GoGoEnslavement: [[spoiler:Lette is [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1015 subjected]] to this while being held hostage by Governor Dimka. In an unusual twist for this trope, not only is the person who forced her into it a ''girl'' named Lark, but Lette is actually showing ''[[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1041 less]]'' skin than she is (Lark finds clothes, at least outside of dress-up, to be a necessary evil). When she sees [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1042 what the bounty hunter who kidnapped her was forced into]], she thinks she may have gotten off easy.]]
* GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe: It's not obvious, but [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=511 Ingrid's skin is green]]
* GuestStrip: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=578]][[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=579]]
* HalfHumanHybrid: Mentioned in [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=49 this]] early comic.
** [[spoiler:Later, we find out that Daimon is a wraith/human hybrid. ]]
** Even later, [[spoiler: Memphis gets Sabre pregnant, and Red and Rose are also expecting.]]
* HalloweenCosplay: Lette dresses up as Priest Set(o).
* HeelFaceTurn: Several characters could qualify for this, although how much of a bad guy they were beforehand is variable. [[spoiler:Daimon probably fits best.]]
* HighlyVisibleNinja: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=940 This bounty hunter]], who mutters "ninja, ninja, ninja" under his breath when sneaking around, and startles easily.
* HomosexualReproduction: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=891 Baby packs]] act as a type of UterineReplicator that allows indivuals of the same sex to have children together.
* HostileShowTakeover: Silver [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=506 attempts this]] in the "Captive Audience" filler special, trying to get the author to make Blue evil, turn him into the protagonist, avert his BaldOfEvil status, and make his secretary Ingrid dress in more revealing clothing ([[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=511 Though he doesn't need the author for that]]). [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=514 It fails]].
* HumanAliens: Most alien species look human, with a few differences, and many can interbreed. AllThereInTheManual material hints that a {{Precursor}} race is responsible.
* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer: [[spoiler:Blue at one point jokingly threatens to give the "shovel talk" to Sapphire's boyfriend.]]
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=772 Only a dream, but...]]
* ImportantHaircut: Lette, [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=129 in Behind Blue Eyes]]
* InterspeciesRomance: Let's see...Sabre and Memphis, Blue and Lette (and Synn), Red and Rose, Aaron and Tuyen...the list goes on.
* ItRunsOnNonsenseoleum: The series is named after the in-universe law of purple, which states that [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=365 nature loves purple, but hates a vacuum. So the vacuum between space is purple.]]
* KickChick: Mari [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1055 resents]] not getting the opportunity to be one of these.
* KlingonsLoveShakespeare: Krackadoom is most impressed with [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=855 cake]].
* LadyLand: Myrania.
* LecherousLicking: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=772 This]] is only a dream, but the lick at least is absolutely in-character for Robbie.
* LittleGreenMen: Green until his growth spurt.
* LizardFolk: Non-evil example, the Drakon
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: And ''how''.
* LovableAlphaBitch: Danni
* LoveTriangle: Robbie and Lynnah are both after Green.
* MadDoctor: Doctor Dross
* ManipulativeBastard: As of [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1103 this]] comic, Dross seems to be adding it to his repertoire of villain tropes.
* TheMenInBlack: [[spoiler:Memphis, Rose, and Violet's parents used to be in one of these organizations. Lette and her nephew's boyfriend are currently members.]]
* MomentKiller: Shishi [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=932 is really]] [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1116 good at this]]
* MostCommonSuperPower: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=593 ShiShi's wrong, by the way.]]
* MrFanservice: It would be shorter to list the male characters that don't qualify for this than those that do.
* MundaneFantastic
* NoBisexuals: Mentioned in [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=769 this]] comic.
* NoFourthWall: Filler strips, at least, have the characters interacting with the author, and Silver once tried to do a HostileShowTakeover.
* NonHumanHumanoidHybrid:
* NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer: As noted by the author [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1173 here]], the stuff that's getting Lynnah so worked up is almost ''all'' stuff that's been said to her at some point.
* {{Nosebleed}}: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=20 Yes, Blue is that sexy]]. [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=214]] [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=241]] [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=276 lampshaded here]]
* OneSteveLimit: There are two characters named Max, one male & one female.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: [[spoiler:'Dragons' are actually higher-dimensional creatures that spend most of their time in another plane of existence.]]
* PowerDyesYourHair: [[spoiler:[[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=384 Wraithe hair]] [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=571 changes]] [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=572 color]] when they go in badass-mode.]]
* PregnantBadass: [[spoiler: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1134 Sabre]].]]
* PrinceCharmingWannabe: Nick. He just can't seem to get the message that Lette isn't interested (which Blue attributes to him chasing the unattainable), and his attempts to hit on other girls at the wedding fall short as well.
* PsychoticSmirk: Lette [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=741 pulls this off]] [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1047 brilliantly]] despite not being evil.
* PunnyName: All of the Fayse siblings.
* ReluctantFanserviceGirl: [[spoiler:[[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1015 Lette does NOT appreciate the outfit]].]]
* {{Reptilian}}: Non-evil example: the Drakons.
* {{Sarashi}}: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1067 here]].
* SchoolClubsAreSeriousBusiness:[[spoiler: Dex's excuse for why he'd be willing to help out Robbie.]]
* SelfMadeOrphan: Silver kills all of his family that he can, including his own mother. He waited until he was already king to do so though, since a royal killing the current monarch eliminates them from the line of succession.
* ShoutOut: Lette's character design is stated to have been based off Seto Kaiba from ''Anime/YuGiOh'', as referenced [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=209 here]] and [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=281 here]]. There's also the [[RunningGag yearly]] [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=120 "beware the ides of March"]] [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=367 Tribble]] [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=589 joke]]. [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1101]] All of them up to March 2016 can be found on the author's Tumblr [[http://kintatsujo.tumblr.com/post/141104598418/i-feel-like-this-is-a-very-interesting-and here]].
* ShowerScene: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=32 The author loves her shower scenes]].
* SlidingScaleOfGenderInequality: The comic as a whole is fairly good about this, which characters of both genders being badass.
** Likewise, Caligulan society, for all the FantasticRacism against 2nd-kind, is very good with gender equality. Heck, WordOfGod says that it's pretty much as gender-equal as you can ''get'' in a species with multiple genders.
** Myranian culture, on the other hand, is ''very'' female dominated, in part due to the fact that [[GenderRestrictedAbility only the females]] being able to "memtwist", to the point that men are seen as breeding tools/living sex toys. Shi Shi's brother was actually named "Stud" by their mother, and in a [[http://golden-dragon-girl.deviantart.com/art/Myranian-Courtship-Mature-84476293 bonus page]] he states that "courtship" there would be tantamount to rape elsewhere. This problem is depicted as cultural though, as Stud's other sister realized how wrong things were after leaving.
* SpaceElves: Second-kind Caligulan.
* SpacePirates: Morgan.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: The author states that there's a whole lot of people who were going to be killed off in earlier drafts. Luckily, most of them were the good guys.
* StalkerWithACrush: There are a few.
** ShiShi is a Myranian [[EntitledToHaveYou who feels entitled to]] Blue.
** Nick is a PrinceCharmingWannabe that can't get the hint that Lette isn't interested.
** A male employee at a pizza place starts obsessing over Green.
** Stella's ex Darcy shows up at one point.
* SuperStrength:
** [[spoiler:The Wraithes become much stronger in their metallic-skinned forms.]]
** Some humans, like Rose and [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1173 Lynnah]], have a lower key version of this.
* TalkingIsAFreeAction: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=404]]
* ThanksforTheMammary: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=593]]
* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: Once Silver tried a HostileShowTakeover by tying up the author in an attempt to force her to make him the star. It failed.
* ThouShallNotKill: Because of Caligula's small population (relative to say, Earth), the military is big on only killing when necessary.
* ThreesomeSubtext: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=944]]
* TookALevelInBadass: Lette, in the Behind Blue Eyes ministory.
* TouchedByVorlons: 2nd Kind and their abilities are (at least partially) the result of a dragon messing with Caligulan genetics.
* UnevenHybrid: There are some Earth humans with a alien ancestor way back when, resulting in this.
* UnusualEars: Most notably Caligulan second kind, but some other alien species also fit.
* UterineReplicator: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=891 Baby Packs]].
* VillainProtagonist: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=511 Silver attempts to compel the author to make him the main character]].
* VirginPower: [[spoiler:The Wraithe species has the phenomenon of the "Virgin Seer", which only manifests in members of the species that make it to a certain age as virgins, though few do. The only example seen so far is Daimon's sister Sylvana, and she only made it to the necessary age because of Daimon's BigBrotherInstinct.]]
* WackyCravings: [[spoiler:[[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1112 discussed by Red and Rose's pregnancy group here]].]]
* WebcomicTime: [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=613 here]].
* WeirdnessCensor: Earth people are often too wrapped up in Earth people problems to notice alien stuff.
* WorldOfActionGirls: Myrania is a planet where the women have kick-ass powers and the men are seen a good for nothing but [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=758 breeding]] and [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=759 moving furniture]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: The only natural hair color that appears in LOP that doesn't appear in real life is blue. (For humans anyway)
