AvM Shorts - Season 1
In "The Nether", Blue and Green find out about the Nether and visit it, encountering many Hostile Mobs, but also discovering quartz, which they collect a large amount of. As they seek to return to the computer, they see Purple going through another portal and decide to follow.
In "Villagers", Green and Blue end up on a different computer (a Macintosh as opposed to their computer, which is a PC). There, they discover an entire new Minecraft community run by villagers, with their buildings and homes adorned with purple coloring. The villagers grab them and take them to a great castle, where a crowned Purple is handing out quartz to thankful villagers. Blue and Green are brought before Purple, and they instantly try to show Purple that they are stick figures like it is and even have quartz. The villagers are intrigued that someone besides Purple has this, and Blue and Green generously give some to the villagers. This angers Purple, who sees them as a threat to its rule. He commands his villagers to apprehend them and throw them in a dungeon.
The two try to break out using a pickaxe, but are thrown back in by a warden and Iron Golem. However, they then proceed to bribe the warden with gold blocks to let them go. They are spotted by other villagers, but offer them gold and quartz blocks to trade for emeralds, to which the villagers accept. The two begin introducing and trading various new kinds of blocks, attracting a crowd of buying villagers and drawing them away from Purple's castle. Purple notices the decrease in traffic and goes to investigate, noticing that Green and Blue are free and selling items to his servants.
Enraged, Purple pulls out a diamond sword and prepares to fight the newcomers soaking up the villagers' attention. However, before it can attack, the villagers go and use their new blocks to build up the castle even bigger with a statue of Purple on top, proving that they remained loyal to their leader and are still grateful for all that he has done for them. Purple sees this and realizes the error of its ways, apologizing to Blue and Green by giving them their own crowns. Purple then leads Blue and Green to its End Portal and has them follow it to The End, where it wants their help to get the Dragon Egg.
In "The End", Purple, Green, and Blue arrive in The End and go to fight the Ender Dragon so they may claim the egg. The three work together to hook it with fishing hooks, then attack it. The dragon flies away, dragging the stick figures behind it to an End City, where it throws them off and heads back for its egg. Green and Blue find an End Ship and fly it after the dragon. Meanwhile, Purple discovers a pair of Elytra in the ship's hold and equips them, allowing it to fly. Blue and Green try to catch the dragon again, but it attacks with its poison breath and destroys the ship. Purple begins pursuing the dragon, but Green and Blue signal for help on the crumbling ship. Purple ponders a moment, but then decides to leave them to die and go after the egg, stealing it and escaping into the End Portal. Green and Blue fall, but are caught by the Second Coming, Red, Yellow, and villagers who followed them to The End.
The stick figures and villagers return to the computer to find Purple reining with the egg as a trophy. However, the angry dragon follows through the portal and begins attacking the community and castle, causing chaos. Purple realizes what it has done and returns the egg as it hatches, leaving the dragon and its newborn to leave and return to The End. However, the other stick figures shame Purple, and the villagers, angry about what Purple's actions have done to their town, grab Purple and take it away to lock it in the dungeon. The other stick figures return to the Nether to go home, but see a series of other Nether portals.
Animation vs. League of Legends
The stick figures decide to play a game of League of Legends together on the Animator's computer. They wander throughout the game world until they come across Purple, who escaped from imprisonment in Minecraft and, seeking revenge, made its way back to their computer. Purple unleashes a series of high-powered clones of itself, which the others are unable to damage or defend against. The Second Coming realizes that Purple is cheating, and escapes the game to find the real Purple tampering with the game's files and code. The two do battle, and the Second Coming manages to destroy all of the hacked clone's files, destroying them. Enraged, Purple steals all of the player character data from the game and eats it, gaining all obtainable abilities in the game. Purple then tries to kill the Second Coming before returning to the game and attacking the others while riding a Baron Nashor.
Purple begins relentlessly destroying the other stick figures' turrets and ruthlessly beating them with magic. Purple and the Baron Nashor then begin attacking the stick figures' Nexus, only for them to realize the Second Coming has made it past their defenses and has almost destroyed theirs. Purple and the Baron Nashor rush to stop it, but the others slow the villains down enough for the Second Coming to destroy the Nexus and end the game.
As the stick figures celebrate their victory, they soon notice that Purple has wandered away, mournful and defeated. They take pity on it, and offer that it join them. Purple agrees, and the Second Coming starts a new game with Purple as a team member. Purple is hesitant after all it has done to them, but realizes that they accept it for who it is. Purple redeems itself and plays one more match with the Stick Gang.
AvM Shorts - Season 3
At the end of the episode, the Stick Gang and their pet pig walk through the forest to the Nether portal that they came from, but encounter Purple collecting flowers. Purple hugs the Second Coming and Green and waves to the rest of the gang. Overexcited, Purple leads them to another Nether portal. Still very excited, it enters the Nether portal, but the Second Coming refuses the rest to come in after the events of Season 1 and what they just went through. The gang tries to return to home (with all but the Second Coming clearly sad) while Purple goes back to the forest to see what's taking them so long. Red turns its head to Purple's Nether portal and sees it sitting down next to it, depressed that its friends abandoned it. They all feel sorry for it and decide to follow the stick figure, although the Second Coming is still heavily reluctant. Purple, Green, Yellow and Blue all wave their hands in the same manner and run into the portal, with the Second Coming following them soon after.
He challenges the stick figures in a parkour competition. However, it's later revealed it was manipulating them, and in fact helping a orange stick figure in his plans to get the Minecraft icon from the Stick Gang's computer and achieve some unknown power. It later got into a fight with Green, but was saved by Orange and escaped, planning to get into the Stick Gang's computer.
Purple is seen at the very end, going through the Nether portal onto the Animator's computer, just in time to confront the Second Coming and Red.
"The Ultimate Weapon"
Purple tries to get the Master Block, but the Second Coming and Red try to stop it, becoming suspicious of its behavior. Purple then decides to fight them, eventually gaining its hands on the Master Block. As it starts glowing white, Purple and Red jump into the Nether portal just moments before it's sucked into the Master Block. Purple runs away as the Master Block consumes more and more things in its path, which includes Yellow's item bar as well as the Stick Gang's freshly-released pig. Using its elytra, Purple flies away but is pursued by Red, who's riding a hoglin, eventually making a jump which lets it leach the Master Block. The two then wrestle for it, until Orange grabs Red and throws it into prison while Purple grabs the Master Block.
As Orange obtains the Master Block, it shoots it into the roof, destroying it and killing several Piglin Brutes. Orange than starts levitating, and Purple tries to hold the Master Block alongside him as it was promised in "Parkour", but Orange smacks it away. Orange then creates black void that starts sucking everything inside it. Purple remains loyal towards its master and sends an army of Piglin Brutes at the now-released Fighting Stick Figures. Once the stick figures kill all the piglins, Purple tries to fly away, but is grabbed by the Fighting Stick Figures before it can escape. It sees Orange and begs him to help it, only to get a taste of its own medicine as Orange leaves it behind to continue fighting the Second Coming. Purple, visibly betrayed, gets rid of its elytra and escapes. Green pursues it, and the two enter a Nether portal.
Animator vs. Animation: The Card Game
In the Animator vs. Animation card game, a character appears named "Purple?" and appears to be a black stick figure coloring itself purple with a paintbrush. It is unknown if this is the same Purple that appeared in the series.
Purple has been often shown as someone selfish and side-changing, betraying the Stick Gang more than once for its own sake, whether it is to get a prize or achieve some sort of power. Purple, however, does have a true sense of honor, whether it is protecting its village or staying loyal to Orange after they team up. Although Purple seemingly shows care towards it village before being overthrown, protecting it from the Ender Dragon by giving its egg back, it did the act very reluctantly, as its body language shows. Purple has been shown to be very determined to remain in power of the village, arresting Green and Blue just for dealing with the Villagers, but made them kings after the Villagers build a statue of Purple from the blocks they got from Green and Blue. In Animation vs. League of Legends, Purple was noticeably cruel in getting its revenge for being overthrown, but ultimately became sad after being defeated once again. In Season 3, Purple ditches most of the redeeming qualities and they had, manipulating the Stick Gang into being trapped in an endless loop, imprisoning the Pig and ultimately planning to achieve some unknown power alongside Orange. However, it still remained loyal to its master, although scared.
