As the story progressed, we saw her climbing the ladder of ranks and she eventually managed to reach the position of lieutenant colonel within NERV. Misato has wavy purple hair that makes her appear very elegant and stylish. She is an extremely capable lady who knows how to get any job done.
5/75. Anko Mitarashi
Anko Mitarashi is a female ninja, considering the talented young ninjas that Konoha village produces year after year, we can conclude that she is excellent in her department. Anko’s strong resilience can be established by the fact that she managed to survive Orochimaru’s Cursed Seal of Heaven and she was the only character in the series who could do that. Under Orochimaru’s guidance, she learned a lot of powerful ninjutsu techniques.
4/75. Yuki Nagato
Anime: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
Yuki looks like a completely depressed girl, but we soon realize that this unusual character is an alien who was crafted by Data Overmind. Being an alien, Yuki has got a lot of supernatural powers including Data Powers and Sensory Powers. It is safe to say that no character would willingly want to cross her path after knowing about her real identity.
3/75. Nemu Kurotsuchi
Nemu used to be a lieutenant of Gotei 13, she worked under Mayuri Kurotsuchi and did a decent job in her field. She was created as an AI as part of an experimental project. She appears to be a kind, helpful, and forgiving girl. Nemu is unlike other Soul Reapers characters, her main purpose is to grow and evolve.
2/75. Mephisto Pheles
Anime: Blue Exorcist
One of the strongest purple hair characters on this list and also one of the cruelest. Mephisto Pheles is the ‘The King of Time’, he acts as the Principal in ‘True Cross Academy’, and looks over every important matter. Being the ‘King of Time,’ Mephisto can easily manipulate time and space according to his will. This leads to the creation of many overpowered techniques that normal exorcists can only dream of.
1/75. Cornelia Li Britannia
Anime: Code Geass
It has to be princess Cornelia to make the top list, congrats! She is a part of the Imperial family of Britannia, the kingdom which wanted to establish supreme dominance over the world. Cornelia’s beauty is as divine as she might be on the battlefield. She has beautiful purple hair that she styles in the form of crown braids. Due to her association with the Britannia Empire, she is the main character in the initial parts of the story. Cornelia is a champion when it comes to Knightmare Frame Combat. Other than that, her tactics are also unmatched and she easily completed the full establishment of Area 18.
