* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', any Gem is able to perform fusion by (literally) dancing. Pearl and Amethyst can fuse into the four armed Opal, Garnet and Amethyst can fuse into the destructive Sugilite, Garnet and Pearl can fuse into the showy Sardonyx, and all three can combine to form Alexandrite; apparently any member of their species, including Steven, can combine with any other.
** Putting this here as to not cause any confusion to the reader, Gem fusions seem like Composite fusions, but that's only appearance, and if the gems allow it, personality-wise, but are as eventually revealed a Two Beings One Body fusion, Their bodies mix creating a person with her own physical appearance, experiences, personality, and so forth, however it's appearance and personality are literally a direct mix of the two Gems who created it, and as such either one can take control at any time, with the the true stronger of the two Gems taking dominancy and fully controlling the fusion, in order for this to be obtained they must fight first and this comes across as each one taking control of the parts of their body the have contributed to the fusion in question. This is all demonstrated by [[spoiler: Malachite]], the fusion of [[spoiler:Jasper and Lapis Lazuli]], during the first few moments they, like most fusions, seem to be a fully Composite fusion, however a bombshell is then dropped on us as Rebecca Sugar reveals that they are truly a Two Beings One Body, as [[spoiler:Lapis]] begans using her powers, one of the pair of arms, one of the mouths, and one of the pair of eyes, to with-strain the fusion as [[spoiler: Japer]] uses ''her'' half of the body to resist, until [[spoiler:Lapis]] proves stronger and she gains dominancy over the body, while still fighting [[spoiler:Jasper]] mentally, meaning she is only marginally stronger, and weakening...
** Fusion in this case seems to be The Composite mixed with Power Booster, though some fusions, notably Alexandrite and Malachite, don't mesh together, making it a case of Two Beings in One Body. Fusion gems also combine the weapons of their components into a more powerful weapon. For example: Sardonyx's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ozrGcyoXt0 fusion dance]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXtwAkh25dk weapon summoning]]
** The episode "Alone Together" explains the process more fully. The dance part is necessary to coordinate the different individuals, but they also have to be in the right frame of mind- they have to really ''accept'' the other person/people.
** In that same episode, Steven is able to activate his own fusion power [[spoiler: and fuses with his human friend Connie into Stevonnie.]]
** The season 1 finale "Jail Break" has the appearance of Malachite, formed by [[spoiler:Jasper]] and [[spoiler:Lapis Lazuli.]]
** In "We need to Talk" Rose Quartz and Pearl fuse into Rainbow Quartz.

each other. Fusion is treated as to not cause any confusion to a very ''intimate'' act based highly on the reader, Gem fusions seem like Composite fusions, but that's only appearance, and if personalities on the gems allow it, personality-wise, but are as eventually revealed a Two Beings One Body fusion, Their bodies mix creating a person involved.
** Whether the components gems' personalities fuse along
with her own physical appearance, experiences, personality, their forms seems to vary depending on the component gems and so forth, however it's appearance the product. Garnet, Sardonyx, and Sugilite all demonstrate a merged personality. Malachite, Alexandrite, and Stevonnie on the other hand all demonstrate the individuals sharing the body, although Stevonnie seemed to go back and forth. It appears that the more in sync the component gems are the more the personality are literally a direct mix of the two Gems who created it, and as such either one can take control at any time, with the the true stronger of the two Gems taking dominancy and fully controlling the fusion, in order for this to be obtained they must fight first and this comes across as each one taking control of the parts of their body the have contributed to identity merge, thus making the fusion in question. This more stable. Malachite's components hated each other, Alexandrite is all too many people, and Stevonnie was just getting used to it. Opal is ambiguous, but given how she can barely maintain a physical fusion it's unlikely she has a singular identity. On the other hand, fusions with unique personalities can outright overwhelm the components, demonstrated by [[spoiler: Malachite]], the fusion of [[spoiler:Jasper and Lapis Lazuli]], during the first few moments they, like most fusions, seem to be a fully Composite fusion, however a bombshell is then dropped on us as Rebecca Sugar reveals that they are truly a Two Beings One Body, as [[spoiler:Lapis]] begans using her powers, one of the pair of arms, one of the mouths, and one of the pair of eyes, to with-strain the fusion as [[spoiler: Japer]] uses ''her'' half of the body to resist, until [[spoiler:Lapis]] proves stronger and she gains dominancy over the body, while still fighting [[spoiler:Jasper]] mentally, meaning she is only marginally stronger, and weakening...

Connie, who is pure human. The season 1 finale "Jail Break" has resulting fusion looks more or less like an ordinary person without the appearance of Malachite, formed by [[spoiler:Jasper]] and [[spoiler:Lapis Lazuli.]]
** In "We need

** The general theme is because fusion is so intimate, it depends heavily on the gems involved. Their relationship, personalities and consent all factor into the final result. DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything is in full effect as fusion is a metaphor for relationships in general and sex in particular.
** "The Answer" reveals that traditionally on the Homeworld, Gems only fused with Gems of the same type (as seen when three Rubies fuse into one big Ruby). Fusion between two different types of Gems was seen as scandalous [[spoiler: as demonstrated when Sapphire and Ruby end up accidentally fusing together into Garnet for the first time, to the outrage of all the other Gems in Blue Diamond's court.]]

Ruby only felt as though her fusion with the rest of her squad was just a bigger version of herself, despite her and the other rubies indeed having distinct personalities.

Compare CombiningMecha. Not to be confused with CompositeCharacter. See also MotifMerger and EquippableAlly (for a less intrusive method of combining two characters).

* In the EighthDoctorAdventures book ''Alien Bodies'', it's mentioned the [[NotSoHarmlessVillain Krotons]] will ultimately become a single gestalt race, the Ixtricite, with another crystalline race called the Rhotons and some other race whose name the Doctor can't recall.
