Anime are famous for their colorful characters. I’m not only talking about their personalities, but also about their looks. Anime characters are unique in the world of animation because of their unusual appearance. Think of ten favorite anime characters. Done? Then try to remember how many of them have very different hairstyles. Ichigo has orange hair, Naruto has yellow hair, Goku has spiky hair, and so on and so forth. Today’s list is about the best anime girls with purple hair. I will continue to make similar lists with other hair colors over time. So let’s get started.
12. Frederica Bernkastel, Umineko: When They Cry
Let’s start the list with the cruel witch, Frederica Bernkastel. She may look cute, but she herself claims to be the cruellest witch of them all. Her other name is Witch of Miracles. She watches Beatrice’s game just to pass the time and not get bored. She wants to defeat Beatrice and doesn’t like it when people are tormented by her game. Therefore, she is sometimes inclined to help the players. She has the power to reset the situation as long as there is a small chance of a favorable outcome. She has what appears to be a normal hairstyle with purple color.
11. Haqua du Lot Herminium, Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai
Next up is the District Head of District 32 in Nagumo City Haqua du Lot Herminium from the anime series ‘Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai’. Though not one of the best in the Runaway Spirit Squad, she used to be considered intelligent when she attended school and was a farewell speaker. She is very close to Elise and is her best friend. Her appearance is quite colorful and she has purple hair. She also wears a skull-like ornament on her head. Although Haqua has a soft spot for her friends, she’s quite hard on herself. She tries to hide her flaws to maintain her status.
10. Dokuro Mitsukai, Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-Chan
I’ve watched a few episodes of the anime series ‘Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan’. It’s entertaining at times, but an easy-to-forget anime. But one of the main characters is the female angelic assassin Dokuro Mitsukai who has purple hair. That’s why I included them in this list. While you can watch the anime if you want to while away the time, you have to be in a certain niche to enjoy it. As for Dokuro, she is sent from the future to kill Sakura Kusakabe so she can stop him from inventing an evil weapon in the future. But she approaches her task in a different way.

9. Nana, Elfen Lied
‘Elfen Lied’ is a horror anime series that is quite entertaining. The protagonist Lucy is a Diclonius, a special human with visible horns protruding from the head and special telekinetic hands. This prompted the government to conduct gruesome research on her, but one day she escaped and killed everyone at the facility. But now, due to an injury, she has a child’s personality at times. But the character we’re talking about is Nana, a six-year-old girl (I’ve overstretched myself a bit). She is also a Diclonius, but after a fierce fight with Lucy, her arms were ripped off. Since Kurama was kind to her, Nana is not as sadistic and murderous as the others of her kind.
8. Kuranosuke Koibuchi, Kuragehime (2010):
I included Kuranosuke from the anime ‘Kuragehime’ only because I recently made a list of anime traps and his character is still fresh in my mind. Yes, I said ‘his’ and not ‘her’ since Kuranosuke is a transvestite. But what brings him into this compilation of the 12 best anime girls with purple hair? Well the fact is, despite being a boy, his fashion sense is quite unique and stylish, making him one of the most stylish women on this list. Although his real hair is brown, when Kuranosuke disguises himself as Kurako, he wears purple hair. So it fits the list perfectly.
7. Yuuko Kanoe, Tasogare Otome x Amnesia
Let’s move on to a character from the spooky ghost genre anime ‘Tasogare Otome x Amnesia’. Yuuko Kanoe is one of the main protagonists of the anime series. Her life is tragic because she was left to die in the basement of her school, Seikyou Private Academy. She currently has no memory of her death and wants to find out the truth. Therefore, she clings to freshman Teiichi Niiya, who makes her visible to him. Yuuko is also visible to her blood relative Kirie Kanoe. Yuuko has the appearance of a beautiful girl and has dyed purple hair.
6. Faye Valentine, Cowboy Bebop (1998):
Now let’s turn it up a few notches when it comes to sex. This is Faye Valentine from one of the best space adventure anime of all time, Cowboy Bebop. When I started compiling this list, Faye was one of the first characters that came to mind, not only because of her voluptuous body and sexy outfit (which helped a lot though), but also because she ended up being a valuable member of Team Bebop and her past turned out to be very interesting. Faye is a con artist and robs people. She suffers from amnesia and as a result cannot remember her past. She was recently awakened from a 54 year cryosleep. After a few encounters with Spike, she finally moves in with him and his partner Jet.
5. Yuri Nakamura, Angel Beats!
Do you believe in life after death? Do you think that if you’re good you’ll go on a cruise with God, or if you’re bad you’ll be tortured with Satan? Whatever you believe, I doubt you’ve ever thought about the afterlife like you did in the anime Angel Beats!. Yuri Nakamura is one of the main characters in this anime series. She is the leader of Shinda Sekai Sensen, a group that has only one goal: to fight Tenshi. She helps Otonashi get used to the fact that he is dead and in the afterlife he has to take on the fight against Tenshi who is evil. Although she is 17, she looks much younger.
4. Minene Uryuu, Mirai Nikki
Next up is the badass and evil terrorist-bomber Minene Uryuu from the anime Mirai Nikki. The series follows the lives of participants in a competition organized by the god of time and space, Deus Ex Machina. The prize of the competition is that the winner gets to become the next Deus. Each participant has a diary that they can use to predict the future. Minene is one of those candidates and has one of the best diaries. This diary often helps her to plan a successful escape route in critical situations. Minene is an atheist to the point that she wants to destroy religious organizations.
3. Sergeant Motoko Kusanagi, Ghost in the Shell
Next up is the sexy and badass woman and lead actress of the sci-fi/action anime series Ghost in the Shell, Sergeant Motoko Kusanagi. She is one of the sexiest leads in the entire anime series and has an impressive on-screen presence. Their personalities during and outside of the missions are very different. During an operation, she is very serious and often ventures to search alone. Her entire body is made out of the best robotic technology available and has been built that way since she was a child after an accident. Motoko is also quite adept in combat, taking on much larger opponents.
2. Saeko Busujima, High School of The Dead
If you enjoy watching zombie-themed anime and are looking for some ecchi elements, then you should check out Highschool of the Dead. The series revolves around a society thrown into chaos after the undead erupted. The series focuses on a group of students who must survive in the hostile atmosphere of their school and society. Saeko Busujima is one of the most important characters in the series and has a high level of fighting skills as she has mastered kendo. She is mostly calm and relaxed and enjoys the trust of others. She is also very pretty.
1. Hitagi Senjougahara, Bakemonogatari
The last entry in this list is the female protagonist from the supernatural anime series Bakemonogatari. She is a pretty girl with a sharp tongue who often speaks abusively. After an encounter with a mysterious crab, she became practically weightless (5 kilos!). She threatens anyone who knows her secret and talks very little. She is assisted by Araragi who is trying to cure her supernatural problem. Later she falls in love with him.
