Purple is a major antagonist in the Animator vs. Animation series and its spin-off Animation vs. Minecraft. He is the archenemy of Green.
He serves as the secondary antagonist of the AvM Shorts (being as the secondary antagonist of Seasons 1 and 3) and the main antagonist of Animation vs. League of Legends.
He is a purple stick figure, hailing from another computer. One thing that remains certain about Purple is that he will keep switching from an ally to a villain. In Season 3, he becomes the second-in-command of King Orange until he's betrayed by him.
AvM Shorts - Season 1
Purple is the final antagonist.
In the episode, 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.
Purple is the main antagonist.
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 he 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 his 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 villager and Iron Golem. However, they then proceed to bribe the villager 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 he 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 his ways, apologizing to Blue and Green by giving them their own crowns. Purple then leads Blue and Green to his End Portal and has them follow gun to the End, where he wants their help to kill the Ender Dragon.
Purple is the deuteragonist-turned-secondary antagonist.
Purple, Green, and Blue arrive in the End and go to fight the Ender Dragon. The three work together to hook her with fishing hooks, then attack her. The dragon flies away, dragging the stick figures behind her to an End City, but as a result away from the crytals that are healing her; instead, the crystals create a Dragon Egg, something Purple sees happen. When in the End City, the dragon throws the stick figures off herself and heads back to her home. Green and Blue find an End Ship and fly it after the dragon. Meanwhile, Purple discovers an Elytra in the ship's hold and equips them, allowing him to fly. Blue and Green try to catch the dragon again, but she attacks with her poison breath and destroys the ship. Purple goes to claim the egg, 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 he has done and returns the egg as it hatches, leaving the dragon and her newborn to leave and return to the End. Afterwards, the other stick figures shame Purple, and the villagers, angry about what Purple's actions have done to their town, grab Purple and take him away to lock him 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 his way back to their computer. Purple unleashes a series of high-powered clones of himself, 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 him, 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 him, and offer a chance for friendship. Purple agrees, and the Second Coming starts a new game with Purple as a team member. Purple is hesitant after all he has done to them, but realizes that they accept him for who he is. Purple redeems himself and plays one more match with the Stick Gang.
AvM Shorts - Season 3
Purple is a minor character.
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, he 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 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 his head to Purple's Nether portal and sees him sitting down next to it, depressed that his friends abandoned him. They all feel sorry for him 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.
Purple is the secondary antagonist.
He challenges the stick figures in a parkour competition. However, halfway into the episode, it's revealed that he was evil all along. Giving the Stick Gang's pet pig away to a Piglin Brute, he kneels down to his master, King Orange. It's revealed the whole parkour competition was a trap meant to jail them; And if they tried to find a way out, they would be condemned to an endless loop where a piglin brute is constantly chasing them. King Orange reveals he wants Purple to get the Minecraft icon, aka the Master Block, from the Stick Gang's computer so he could equip it on his sceptre and achieve power. However, Green managed to escape the loop and hear the conversation; When Purple leaves King Orange's fortress to find a Nether portal leading to the Animator's computer, he's attacked by Green. However, King Orange saves him and imprisons Green, and Purple escapes.
Purple is the final antagonist.
He 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 is the secondary antagonist.
Purple tries to get the Master Block, but the Second Coming and Red try to stop him, becoming suspicious of his behavior. Purple then decides to fight them, eventually gaining his hands on the Master Block. Revealing a power previously unknown to the stick figures, the Master Block starts glowing white and consumes all the items near it into itself, including the Nether portal; Purple and Red manage to go through it at the last second, but the Second Coming isn't, and is stranded on the computer. Purple runs away as the Master Block consumes more and more things in its path, which includes Yellow, Green and Blue's items, and their pig, killing it - This also accidentally saves King Orange, as we was in the middle of fighting them. Using his elytra, Purple flies away but is pursued by Red, who's riding a hoglin, eventually making a jump which lets him leach the Master Block. The two then wrestle for it, until King Orange grabs Red and throws him into prison while Purple grabs the Master Block.
As King Orange obtains the Master Block and equips it on his sceptre, the block is corrupted. The monarch uses his newfound power to shoots a beam of light 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 he was promised in "Parkour", but King Orange smacks him away. He then creates black void that starts sucking everything inside it. The Second Coming then arrives and fights Orange, having gained his own Master Block. Despite the betrayal, Purple remains loyal towards his master and sends an army of Piglin Brutes at the newly-released Fighting Stick Figures. Once the stick figures kill all the piglins, Purple tries to fly away, but is grabbed by Green and Yellow before he can escape. He sees King Orange and begs him for help, only to get a taste of his own medicine as his once-master leaves him behind to continue fighting the Second Coming. Purple, visibly shocked, gets rid of his elytra and escapes. Green manages to get his hands on the elytra and, despite Yellow urging him to forget about Purple, chases him into 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, and if it is, is this element still canon to his lore.
Purple has been often shown as someone selfish and side-changing, betraying the Stick Gang more than once for his own sake, whether it is to get a prize or achieve some sort of power. However, he does have a true sense of honor, whether it is protecting his village or staying loyal to King Orange after they team up. Although Purple seemingly shows care towards his village before being overthrown, protecting it from the Ender Dragon by giving her egg back, he did the act very reluctantly, as his 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 his revenge for being overthrown, but ultimately became sad after being defeated once again. In Season 3, Purple ditches most of the redeeming qualities he had, manipulating the Stick Gang into being trapped in an endless loop, imprisoning the Pig and ultimately planning to achieve some unknown power alongside King Orange - And, once the power was revealed to be a black hole sucking everything inside it, this might or might not mean he became outright omnicidal, for unknown reasons. However, he still remained loyal to his master, although scared of him.
