Fanfic: Magna Clades
Magna Clades is a Steven Universe fanfic written by Voltalia concerning the Original Characters Zoisite and Onyx going around, killing people, and the Crystal Gems having to stop them.

This fanfic uses the tropes:

  • Anyone Can Die: Well, anyone who's human can die as Zoisite and Onyx are kind enough to demonstrate.
  • Big Bad: Zoisite.
  • Bilingual Bonus: The title translates to "a great disaster" in Latin.
  • Blob Monster: Zoisite first shapeshifts into this in chapter 3 and uses the form to strike at his victims.
  • Bloodier and Gorier
  • Brain Bleach: Most of the gory scenes (and the rape scene in chapter 8) should have this on standby.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Zoisite and Onyx inflict these on their victims. Onyx blows a woman to smithereens and then graphically tears her boyfriend's neck apart with her telekinesis in the first chapter, while Zoisite shapeshifts into a white blob, starting as early as chapter 3, just so he can liquify people to death!
  • The Dragon: Onyx.
  • Egopolis: The Chalcopyrite Queendom is said to have been named for its very first ruler.
  • Evil Chancellor: Zoisite is supposed to be this. Pearl says he may've been responsible for the Queen Jubilee's death.
  • Fantastic Racism: Zoisite is prejudiced against humans and wants them all killed because he doesn't believe they deserve to breed with Crystal Gems.
  • Fantasy Counterpart Culture: The Chalcopyrite Queendom is supposedly based off of the Roman Empire.
  • Go Out With A Bang: Zoisite and Zirconia literally die this way.
  • Gorn: There's a lot of this in the fanfic.
  • Gosh Darn It to Heck!: The only real curse word used throughout the fic is "damn."
  • In Memoriam: Chapter 9 onwards is dedicated to Jew Wario, who committed suicide while it was being written, via author's note.
  • Kill 'em All: What Zoisite plans to do to all the humans.
  • Oh My Gods!: The Gems swear, "Oh my Goddess!" throughout the fanfic.
  • Quest for the Rest: First started in chapter 4 and completed in chapter 9. This is actually more of a search for help in defeating Zoisite than anything else.
  • Rape as Drama: In chapter 8, Zoisite proceeds to have his way with Connie while Peedee and his parents watch in horror.
  • Stress Vomit: Steven throws up after accidentally killing Zoisite and Zirconia.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: By the end of the fanfic, Cinnamon and Onyx have completely vanished from the plot.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Zoisite. Combined with Mystical White Hair.
