The Purplest One - Week 3 Results

We have just finished our third week in the The Purplest One bracket. This round, the highest seeded competitor was dethroned in a stunning turn of events, by someone who in our opinion isn't really that purple. Also the blast from the duck filled past was defeated by someone who is gearing up to win it all. An evil robot was just barely beaten by a friendly dragon and the new favorite to win crushed the weird children's mascot thing. We are looking ahead to our final four. Here are the results of week 3. The winners are in purple.

Prince (Purple Rain) vs 25 Skeletor (He-Man and the Masters of the Universe)
29 Darkwing Duck (Darkwing Duck) vs 28 Waluigi (Mario Tennis)
15 Spyro (Spyro) vs 10 Shockwave (Transformers)
30 Tinky Winky (Teletubbies) vs Joker (Batman)


Week 4 match ups are as follows.

25 Skeletor (He-Man and the Masters of the Universe) vs 28 Waluigi (Mario Tennis)
15 Spyro (Spyro) vs Joker (Batman)

The Purplest One - Week 2 Results


The second week of voting on the The Purplest One bracket is over. We are saw a lot of votes and the results were incredibly close. A lot of the men are going home this week. We are also seeing the departure of the bracket's only human woman (if you don't count Bieber). What we have left are a lot of the male but not necessarily human competitors. The winners are also divided right down the middle between good and evil. Two things are certain. The first is that the Elite Eight are some of the purplest competitors in the history of history. The second is that we probably should have included Harold's purple crayon. Oh well. You live and you learn. The results are listed below. The winners are in purple.


Prince (Purple Rain) vs 16 Professor Plum (Clue)

MBS 054 - The Baltimore Brackets



The first week of voting in the The Purplest One bracket is over. We have eliminated many great competitors (and Justin Beiber) to arrive at our top 16. We bring our friend and not legal council George Blazeski on to talk purple and also football. Also speaking of purple and football, you are never going to believe who from the bracket comes on. But then again with the power of prayer and positive thinking anything is possible. Anything.

The Purplest One Bracket

There are so many colors. The cool serene ocean is blue. The hot sun is red. The fresh grass is green. And then there's purple. Purple is weird. Purple is so hard to find in nature that it has historically been one of the most valuable colors. When asked, 3 out of 4 young children prefer purple to every other color. In some cultures, purple is the color of mourning. This does not fit in with the usual color theory narrative because it is so bizarre and the confusion isn't limited exclusively to dying clothing.


Many iconic characters have existed over the years that relied heavily on use of the color purple. Some of them wear a outfit. Some have adopted the color purple as a specific part of their identity. Other were even born purple. In almost every case, the purple seems to inform a very specific part of their identities. But who is the most purple? Who is the purplest one?

We have gathered 32 of the purplest ones and we are looking to you to determine the purplest one. We have cartoons, movie characters, comic book characters, and even real people. Also Justin Beiber! Vote as many times as you want. Here are the week one match-ups.


Prince (Purple Rain) vs 32 Yzma (The Emperor's New Groove)
The Purple Man (Daredevil) vs 31 Ivan Ooze (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie)
Justin Bieber (Never Say Never) vs 30 Tinky Winky (Teletubbies)
4 Phantom Limb (Venture Bros.) vs 29 Darkwing Duck (Darkwing Duck)
5 Count Von Count (Sesame Street) vs 28 Waluigi (Mario Tennis)
6 Joker (Batman) vs 27 Lumpy Space Princess (Adventure Time)
7 Dino (The Flintstones) vs 26 Daphne Blake (Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!)
8 Twilight Sparkle (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic) vs 25 Skeletor (He-Man and the Masters of the Universe)
