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?
