Purple is one of those eye colors that does not occur naturally in real life. Still, while this exotic and intriguing color cannot be found in real life, our favorite fictional characters are sometimes seen with purple eyes, especially in anime. In this article, we are going to bring a list of the 20 best purple-eyed anime boys that we know of. We’ll be using different sources and rank them based on their popularity and the general level of awesomeness they represent. The list is going to be pretty diverse, including various characters from various franchises and genres.
1. Lelouch Lamperouge
Franchise: Code Geass
Lelouch is the son of the 98th British Emperor Charles zi Britannia and Empress Marianne. After the death of his mother, he was sold to Japan along with his sister Nunnally. It was there that he first met Suzaku, who over time became his best friend. When Japan was finally occupied by Britain and renamed Area 11, he vowed to overthrow his father and create a peaceful world for Nunnally. He officially died with his sister in the invasion of Britain, but he is protected by the Ashford family, who have already supported his mother, Marianne.
2. Shū Tsukiyama
Franchise: Tokyo Ghoul
Shū Tsukiyama, better known by his pseudonym “Gourmet”, is a powerful and influential ghoul. He is one of the mainstays of the very famous ghoul restaurant, where he is known as Mr. MM. His primary goal is to devour Kaneki, devoting him to a real sickly obsession, His kagune is of the armored type. After the battle of Aogiri, he joins Ken’s group and takes Hinami Fueguchi under his wing.
3. Yugi Muto
Yugi Muto is a shy boy who has no friends. Later, Yugi’s grandfather gave him the Millennium Puzzle, found in an Egyptian tomb, as he feels the puzzle is meant for Yugi. The latter took eight hours (anime) to reconstruct it. When he finished the puzzle, he made a wish: to have real friends. Joey and Tristan, who hitherto tormented him, were defended by Yugi from someone bigger than them and therefore became friends with him.
4. Julius Novachrono
Franchise: Black Clover
Julius is known to have an obsession with magic, so he loves to explore the Kingdom in search of magic he’s never seen before. Usually, his childish attitude surfaces when he discovers a new type of magic and he becomes excited to see it in action. Julius even goes so far as to disguise himself, to do his research without being recognized by the citizens. Due to his childlike nature, Julius has a tendency to shy away from his responsibilities as Mage-Emperor or voluntarily leave when high-ranking Knights and low-ranking Knights are in the same room, even though he knows they might argue.
5. Yami Yugi
This character is the key to the manga. Yami (or Atem) is a mysterious character. At first, nothing is known about him, other than a connection to the Millennium Puzzle. He is a self-confident being who is notably a master in the field of all games, but specifically in the games of darkness where he throws sanctions of fate (the penalty) on the loser. Over the seasons, we learn that it is about an ancient pharaoh who would have erased his memories of himself to protect a secret and who would have saved the world from darkness 5000 years ago. Yami seems to have a powerful connection to the three Egyptian gods, but he also shares a touching friendship with Yugi and his gang.
6. Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki
The Rikudô Sennin was the creator of all the ninja techniques. He has mastered all the techniques, including that of the Mangekyô Sharingan and that of the Six Paths of Pain, and has also mastered the five natures of chakra. And besides, his reserve of chakra was immense, even infinite. He respected the tailed beasts he had created as well as the people who raised him to the rank of a god, showing that in his time, he was respected by everyone.
His power was immense; we also know from himself that he created the Moon with the Chibaku Tensei while being weakened. Even Nagato claimed that his Chibaku Tensei technique was inferior to that of Hagoromo. One can notice that he had a sword, and claim that he had a very great mastery of this weapon undoubtedly surpassing that of Mifune, and of all shinobi and samurai.
7. William Vangeance
Franchise: Black Clover
William is loved by his men and demands extreme loyalty from them. He has a calm and friendly demeanor and almost always wears a friendly smile when he converses with other people. He still maintains a somewhat mysterious aura due to the fact that his mask covers most of his expression. He is an observant and cautious individual who was quick to notice Asta’s high athletic ability during the exam and who also tried to keep the other captains in check during Gueldre Poizot’s escape attempt by noting that the other captain may be under the influence of the someone else’s magic.
He is also an empathic person. During his childhood, he was able to feel and understand Patry’s emotions (hatred, anger) and despite wanting to destroy the humans of the Clover Kingdom, he did not stop him and decided to help him to see his friend happy. After all this William cried, relieved and happy when he found out that Julius was still alive, and with regret for what he did he swore his loyalty again.
8. Nagato / Pain
Pain is the official head of the Akatsuki organization (although it is unofficially Tobi, who is the co-founder, who pulls the strings). He teams up with Konan and sits in the hidden village of Soul he rules after a period of civil war. The name Pain does not correspond to a single character, but to a grouping of six different bodies (avatars), remotely controlled by Nagato Uzumaki (a former student of Jiraiya).
Konan considers Nagato to be Pain’s 7th Corps. The avatars constituting Pain are named: Tendô, Chikushodô, Jigokudô, Shuradô, Gakidô, Ningendô, and the one of which Nagato is the body, Gedô. However, it will be noted that Nagato preferably uses the Tendô avatar to interact with others.
9. Byakuya Kuchiki
Byakuya Kuchiki is Rukia’s adopted older brother and the captain of the 6th Gotei 13 Division. He was the husband of Hisana, Rukia’s sister, and he granted her last wish by adopting her to his noble family. However, he never showed her any real sign of affection. He is always calm, haughty, and sure of himself.
Although he shows no emotion upon learning that Rukia is about to be executed, he is deeply upset and does not know what to do. As he is also the head of the Kuchiki family, one of the most important in Soul Society, he is the best known of the Gotei 13 captains. His mastery of bakudo and hado is such that he does not need to quote the formulas.
10. Ayato Kirishima
Franchise: Tokyo Ghoul
Ayato is Toka Kirishima’s little brother and an executive in Aogiri. Nicknamed the “Black Rabbit”, he tends to be confused with his sister who also wears a bunny mask. He has a totally opposite personality to that of his sister, coming across as arrogant, aggressive, and cynical.
Believing that “the reason of the strongest is always the best”, he believes that the weak are destined to die and have no place on this earth. He has a fierce hatred towards humans, and in particular against the CCG which destroyed his family. Like his sister’s, his kagune is a winged type.
11. Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki
Momoshiki Otsutsuki was a member of the main family of the Otsutsuki Clan, who traveled in search of Chakra in order to gain power and longevity. After his death at the hands of Boruto Uzumaki, Momoshiki chose him as his vessel by granting him Karma.
Momoshiki was an extraordinarily powerful being, who along with Kinshiki, and Urashiki in the anime, and from the preparations, Kaguya made in preparation for her arrival, Sasuke speculated that they were a greater threat than her.
In the anime, Momoshiki stated that he could have single-handedly defeated Kaguya. He demonstrated enough power to effortlessly destroy an unknown world and its entire population, even though he stated that they were a low-level civilization.
12. Nozel Silva
Franchise: Black Clover
Like the rest of House Silva, Nozel is an arrogant man who believes himself superior to others. Although he calls some people “poor rats”, he takes his role as Knight-Mage very seriously and is demanding of himself as well as his brothers and sisters. When Solid Silva belittles House Vermillion after Fuegoleon Vermillion is badly injured, Nozel points out that House Silva is worse, as they weren’t present during the battle.
Despite his usual arrogance, Nozel shows signs of respect and affection for those close to him. He thus states that he will avenge Fuegoleon when he gets hurt, and later he mocks Fana’s magic by insinuating that Fuegoleon’s flames are superior to his own.
13. Hamura Ōtsutsuki
Hamura was one of the most powerful people in history, which he demonstrated by being able to defeat the Ten-Tails alone along with his brother Hagoromo. He possessed a Shakujō and a Sword and was presumably highly skilled in handling both weapons. He also inherited the powerful Chakra from his mother.
It is known that he was able to use the Yin Release, with which he was able to wield the Yin Power of the Six Paths in his left hand, which in combination with Hagoromo’s Yang Power of the Six Paths they used to seal his mother and turn the Ten-Tails into the core of the Six Paths — Chibaku Tensei.
14. Marik Ishtar
Marik Ishtar is a character from the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga and anime. In the Yu-Gi-Oh! series, Marik Ishtar is the owner of the Millennium Rod, which allows him to create shadow play and control an individual’s mind. It was thanks to it that he was able to create his secret villainous organization. His goal is to take revenge on Pharaoh Atem (Yugi’s double) and to appropriate his infinite powers in order to replace him. For this, he must have in his possession the three Egyptian God cards: Obelisk the Tormentor, Slifer the Sky Dragon, and the Winged Dragon of Ra.
Marik, accompanied by his sister Isis and Odion, will later welcome Yugi and his friends, who have come to Egypt to help the Pharaoh find the memories of his past. After their victory against Zorc the Dark in the past of Atem (who has regained his memory), Yugi and his companions go to the place where the soul of the Pharaoh will be released. Marik and the others attend the duel between Atem and Yugi.
15. Toge Inumaki
Franchise: Jujutsu Kaisen
A second-year student, he uses magic related to words. Due to the lineage in the Inumaki clan, he was born with different markings around his mouth. Whenever he says a word (such as “fall”) any target who hears the word will be forced to do so. Because of this ability, he has a very shy and silent character and is used to communicating only with ingredients used to prepare rice balls. During Shibuya’s arc, he is accidentally caught in Sukuna’s domain expansion and loses an arm.
16. Urashiki Ōtsutsuki
Urashiki was an extraordinarily powerful being, who along with Momoshiki and Kinshiki, was considered a greater threat than Kaguya. He was able to hold his own against two Kage level opponents simultaneously. As an Otsutsuki, Urashiki possessed an extremely powerful chakra, as well as the ability to levitate and survive in space.
According to himself, Urashiki specialized in information gathering. He was able to refine Chakra Fruit into Red Earth.

Urashiki had great physical strength, being able to break the ground with his staff.

19. Fuegoleon Vermillion
Franchise: Black Clover
Fuegoleon is a righteous person who judges people by their true worth rather than social status. This aspect of his personality was seen when he defended Asta from the oppression of House Silva by explaining to them that Asta had been invited by Julius Novachrono, which meant that the Mage-Emperor had recognized his value.
Additionally, he also shows his sense of justice as he is not ignorant when someone gets attacked regardless of the reason or status of the attacker. Fuegoleon also has a charismatic side which translates into great leadership qualities. He is able to quickly take charge of the situation and issue the appropriate orders, such as when he issued orders to the Knight Mages right after the Royal City was overrun. Fuegoleon is also very calm and cooperative in emergency situations.
20. Wonderweiss Margela
Wonderweiss is the only modified Arrancar in existence; he is mentally impaired and seems attached to Tōsen. It is the only Arrancar whose creation by the Hōgyoku has been observed. Theoretically at the level of an Espada, he is not one of them. The only intelligible word we have seen him utter is his name.
During his first foray into the human world, he will spend his time looking at plants and eating insects, while dodging Urahara Kisuke’s attacks. His zanpakutō is a claymore with a purple scabbard and hilt (the same color as his eyes).
During his second appearance in the human world, during the battle of winter where Espada and Fracción face captains and lieutenants, he arrives by a Garganta of much larger dimensions than usual and is followed by an unknown creature of the stature also phenomenal, Wonderweiss being less than a finger of this creature.
He once again demonstrates his power by piercing Captain Ukitake with his right arm, without him being able to retaliate. He then fights Mashiro, until destroying her mask, as he is about to finish her off, Kensei arrives to save her and take over. After being knocked out by Kensei, he is found when he appears in his resurección form against Captain-Commander Yamamoto, who defeats him with his bare hands.
In his Resurección form, it has a vertically elongated and more or less tall head as well as shoulders and hips, but very thin arms and legs. Extinguish was created for the one and only purpose of countering Ryujin Jakka. In order to achieve this power, Wonderweiss gave up everything: language, knowledge, memory, and even reason.
He is also able to regenerate at high speed but does not know how to adapt in combat. So he only hits; to do that, he has the ability to create additional arms. After Captain-Commander Yamamoto defeats Wonderweiss, Aizen confesses to him that all of Ryujin Jakka’s flames that he put out are actually sealed and stored in Wonderweiss’s skull. Wonderweiss suddenly releases them and dies for good.
