Purple Bloons contain 2 Pink Bloons, are fast AND are immune to all energy, fire, and plasma type effects.
~ Message upon first encounter (BTD6)

The Purple Bloon is a bloon first introduced in Bloons Tower Defense 6 , appearing on rounds 25, 32, 45, 48, 62, 78 and 95. It also appears in Bloons Adventure Time TD. It has immunity to energy (lasers, magical bolts, etc.), fire, and plasma effects, is almost as fast as a Pink Bloon, is a parent of two pink bloons, and has an RBE of 11. It could be compared to the White Bloon and Black Bloon for its immunity to certain attacks; however, unlike them, the Purple Bloon has no parent bloon. It could also be considered the inverse of the Lead Bloon, which is immune to sharp objects, as well as the successor to Bloons Super Monkey 2's Glass Bloon, which is immune to energy attacks.

Immunity[edit | edit source]

Without placing the affected towers within a Monkey Village with the upgrade Monkey Intelligence Bureau, or Tuxedo Jake with his Inspiring Melody upgrade in Bloons Adventure Time TD, the Purple Bloon cannot be popped by most fire or energy-based upgrades. The Purple Bloon is immune to the following towers and upgrades:

Combat[edit | edit source]

Although the Purple Bloon can be easily popped during early rounds, it can be quite dangerous during late rounds, especially on Round 95, where massive amounts of MOAB-Class Bloons appear and the player begins to rely on powerful towers that mainly use energy, fire, and plasma attacks, which the Purple Bloon is immune to. As a result, a group of Purple Bloons can pass through a player's defenses unnoticed, and cause the player to lose. Spike Factories could be used to block any Purple Bloons from escaping the player's defenses without trouble as they never utilize such attacks. Monkey Intelligence Bureau is also helpful for allowing towers to pop Purple Bloons.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Purple Bloon has the least RBE of any bloon that can spawn in Freeplay Rounds.
    • Purples in Freeplay are stacked on top of each other, making them harder to handle without the right upgrades in play.
      • However, in later rounds in Freeplay mode, Purple Bloons will eventually stop spawning for several rounds. In versions before 11.0, the Purple Bloon clusters stop spawning on round 151, in version 11.0 it stops on round 121.
      • Purples in Freeplay will always spawn in groups of 1110, or 550 for Camo variants.
  • Fortified Purple Bloons can also appear in Freeplay rounds, making them the only Bloon that can be applied the Fortified property outside Sandbox.
    • Fortified Purple Bloons were removed in the 2.0 update due to the Fortified ability to Purple Bloons being "useless and unintentional".
      • However, the Fortified property did give an extra layer protection to the Purples, making an RBE of 12 for a Fortified Purple.
  • The Purple Bloon has a cyan-colored outline, which might be what is used to act as a shield to energy attacks.
  • Purple Bloons were the last color of the rainbow to be introduced into a bloons game.
    • Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow bloons were introduced in Bloons, and Orange in Bloons Pop 3.
  • In Bloons Adventure Time TD, a farming method known as Purple Bloon Farming exists.
  • On rounds 81+ in BTD6, Purple Bloons will only spawn one Pink Bloon when popped instead of two.
