Written by Theo J Ellis

Anime characters with purple eyes. This is a unique one and isn’t the most common you’ll find in the anime industry.

Eye colors like black, brown, blue are more frequent. And characters with purple eyes look distinctive because of their features and their overall design.

Characters in this post will be taken from:

  • Psychological.
  • Ecchi.
  • Supernatural.
  • Shonen.
  • Mecha.
  • Magic.

And other anime genres.

Here’s a list!


1. Uryuu Minene (Future Diary)

Uryuu Minene eye patch purple eyes

Uryuu Minene is one of the most relevant characters in the Mirai Nikki (Future Diary) series. She’s a bit of a savage and more than just on the aggressive side.

Having a rough upbringing has hardened her heat and made her rough around the edges, but there’s still a sweetness to her character when she lets her guard down and isn’t so defensive.

Her eye patch is a common look after the first few episodes.


2. Ami Kawashima (Toradora)

Ami Kawashima is a character I liked the least from Toradora at some point. She plays a somewhat important role after showing up.

With blue hair, purple eyes, and a prickly, straightforward attitude, not many like her. And this is referenced with her quote about “it’s hard to like my when I’m being myself”.

This is a relatable part of her personality, and she does serve a purpose in this rom com series.

She’s misunderstood.


3. Emilia (Re:Zero)

Emilia is the main waifu of the Re:Zero anime. She’s the one who’s chosen by Subaru Natsuki from the first episode of the series.

Being a half witch, she’s misjudged a lot despite her not being who people think she actually is. She’s also a little childish in some ways, like when it comes to romance.

Emilia’s main quality is her gentle persona and caring personality. And she’s far from a damsel in distress as she’s competent and skilled.


4. Chiyo Sakura (Nozaki Kun)

Chiyo Sakura cute kawaii

Chiyo Sakura, the orange haired 16 year old girl from the Nozaki Kun anime series. She also has purple eyes. It’s a unique design mix.

She’s shy, blushes a lot, and is interested in Nozaki who’s a manga artist. But the anime is written in a parody style so the romance ultimately doesn’t go anywhere. That’s the point.


5. Toge Inumaki (Jujutsu Kaisen)

YouTube video

Toge Inumaki is a character who’s more powerful than he looks and appears. Because of his strange ability, he speaks in code to avoid triggering his powers.

This of course makes for a good laugh and some good comedy in Jujutsu Kaisen, and it makes Inumaki a distinctive character. Especially as far as the sorcerers in JJK.


6. Lucifer (The Devil Is A Part Timer)

Lucifer is one of the side characters of the show, and temporarily one of the villains in the anime… Which is an irony given the set up of the show.

This character shows up later and even though he’s a loud mouth at first, Lucifer is actually intelligent, smart, knows how to use computers, hack, and is nifty.

His set of skills are completely different to other characters.


7. Lenalee Lee (D. Gray Man)

Lenalee Lee purple eyes green hair

Lenalee Lee is a main girl in the D. Gray Man series, a shounen that’s underrated and highly appreciated by its fanbase.

It released in the 2000’s.

Lenalee, just like other characters in the anime, work for the black order. It’s an organization in London (with worldwide branches) that works to exercise demons called Akuma.

She might appear to be sweet, but she’s also a serious character who will hold others accountable, especially friends, and is far from a selfish person.

8. Princess Yona (Yona Of The Dawn)

Princess Yona red hair purple eyes

Yona, or princess yona as she’s called in the beginning of the anime, is on the run after she was almost killed on her home turf.

She’s no longer a real princess and she has to start learning, adapting, and surviving in the real world. And she gets to see how the real world actually is since she’s no longer being pampered.

Yona’s progress is one of the best in anime regardless of gender, and the series needs a 2nd season.


9. Yozora Mikazuki (Haganai)

Yozora Mikazuki female character

Yozora Mikazuki is a viscious, malicious character in the Haganai series. She’s like this only with girls she see’s as competition.

She’s seen bullying Sena, a blonde haired character at parts of the anime, and she cop blocks the main character’s interest in Sena.

You can tell Yozora does have decent parts to her personality, but she spends too much time being bitchy and getting bent out of shape.

She’s a little different around Kodaka, the male character. And his sister as well.

10. Yami Yugi (Yugioh)

Yami Yugi yugioh anime protagonist

Yami Yugi is the “person” living inside the main character called Yugi in the Yugioh series. He came from a treasure.

Unlike the original Yugi who seems more fragile and weak, Yami Yugi is clearly on another level, more confident, wise, and insightful.

Yami’s hair is a sight to see in itself, and his purple eyes makes his character design different.


11. Akatsuki (Log Horizon)

Akatsuki log horizon cute

Akatsuki is the ninja/assassin type of character in Log Horizon, and she works directly with Shiroe who’s a strategist.

She insists on calling Shiroe master, and is loyal to a fault. She doesn’t mince her words and will attack anyone who shows the slightest bit of disrespect.

In the real world Akatsuki is older than her avatar looks, and even taller. But that’s she choice she made within the game called Elder Tales.


12. Euphemia Li Britannia (Code Geass)

Euphemia Li Britannia purple eyes pink hair

Princess Euphemia is one of the most loved characters in Code Geass, and one of the earliest characters to show up in the anime.

She plays an important but sad role in the coming events of the first season.

Euphemia is similar to the princess in the anime Aldnoah Zero. Her intentions are genuine, her heart is pure, and her motives have no malice.

She’s a good person inside and out, and only wants the best.


13. Shinsou Hitoshi (My Hero Academia)

shinsou Hitoshi school mha

Shinsou is a character we all know and like by now in the MHA series. His first battle with Deku was intense, and it showed off his power to the people.

Later on in season 5 we see him again and he gets some shine. He’s the type of guy who never gives up and finds a way to use his talents the best ways he can.

He’s self reflective and not stubborn like Bakugo or similar characters.


14. Isabella (The Promised Neverland)

isabella the promised neverland mother

Isabella is the leader of the human “farm” that’s being run in The Promised Neverland. But the kids are being told different.

They all think it’s just a place they grew up, and they see Isabella as their mother. And she plays the role better than anyone.

When the hints show up, you can see Isabella has a menacing smile and there’s something behind her overly kind persona.


15. Ayumi Otosaka (Charlotte)

Ayumi Otosaka kawaii

Ayumi is the cute little sister of Yuu Otosaka, the mian character of the Charlotte series. Made by P.A Works. She has big purple eyes.

She always cooks and makes food for Yu and herself, but it’s always the same food and done in a similar style. It’s not the best, but she always ties her best and that’s what makes likable as a sister.

She also plays an important role in the anime for different reasons.

16. Eureka (Eureka Seven)

Eureka anime eyes

Eureka’s a mysterious girl and the main female character of Eureka Seven. Short green hair, purple eyes, and a unique outfit.

Her past runs deep, and there’s a lot to digest and dissect from her characteristics and what’s happening in the plot of the anime surrounding Eureka.

One thing that can be said is she’s completely different, and she’s a well written female character who’s underappreciated.


17. Erina Nakiri (Food Wars)

Erina Nakiri blush reading food ars

Erina Nakiri is a blondie with purple eyes from Food Wars, and ends up being one of the biggest Tsundere’s of the anime. In fact she’s what you’d call “Himedere” because of her princess syndrome.

She acts stush, important, and has a sense of almost arrogance to her personality, depending on the circumstances. Bu that’s all a façade of her acting out mostly.

She’s one of many Waifu’s from Food Wars.

18. Hanako Koyanagi (Love Is Hard For Otaku)

Hanako Koyanagi purple eyes e1648645461936

Hanako Koyanagi is one of the main girls of this slice of life series, and is the girlfriend of Tarou, an orange haired character.

At work she’s a professional and handles herself well. She’s dressed to fit the part and has a classy sense to her style.

Like other characters she’s an Otaku and she loves Yaoi anime and manga in particular.


19. Muru Muru (Future Diary)

Muru Muru future diary girl brown skin

Muru Muru is the character who lives with God in the anime, so she has a lot of power herself. She over see’s all the chaos and drama between diary users.

Just as her appearance suggests, Muru Muru is childish, energetic, fun, and always bouncing off the walls.

She has light brown skin.


20. Urd (Ah My Goddess)

Urd ah my goddess stunning

Urd is a literal goddess, and a brown skinned one at that with white hair and purple eyes. She’s the sister of Belldandy from the same anime, who’s also a goddess.

Her personality is that of someone who likes to tease others, can be cautious, and is much wiser than she seems. She looks after Belldandy, her sister.

If Belldandy is yin, Urd is yang. She’s willing to do things Belldandy is not, and vice versa.


21. Nepgear (Hyperdimension Neptunia)

nepgear tears hyperdimension neptunia

Purple hair and purple eyes. Nepgear is the little sister of Neptune, but she’s more mature than Neptune and is often seen as the older sister because of it.

She’s more on the soft side, doesn’t like fighting necessarily, and is more of the nurturer. Neptune is the opposite as she’s a rebel, enjoys fighting, playing games, and slacking off.

Nepgear is more responsible in that way and not laid back.
