Added DiffLines:

* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://soundcloud.com/aivisura/steven-universe-sunstone Sunstone]] features Garnet's synths with Steven's chiptunes occasionally making a tune that sounds an awful lot like the Cartoon Network jingle, which is befitting for a character that incorporates Saturday morning cartoons.

Added DiffLines:

* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: After Smoky Quartz blows Jaspar into the air with their BlowYouAway attack, they mimic the sound of Jasper falling and hitting the ground; "Wheeeoooooo-BHOOM!"


* {{Jerkass}}: Many of their actions throughout the series wouldn't even qualify them for being a SociopathicHero. Examples of this in their very limited screen time include: [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown ruthlessly beating another gem]] so badly that she was willing to risk contracting a life-threatening disease just to have any hope of getting out of the fight alive, endangering the lives of Garnet and Pearl by upsetting them to the point of forcible defusion while they were [[EldritchLocation in Sardonyx's room]], invading the home of a normally peaceful corrupted gem and pummeling her [[ForTheEvulz for the lulz]], nearly destroying Steven's house through their reckless antics [[note]] Though to be fair, most everyone in the show does that [[/note]], and usually callously laughing at and ridiculing their victims while doing so. They get by on account of being LaughablyEvil and BloodyHilarious without the blood, but only barely.

* FatBastard: Their first act upon being born is to [[CurbStompBattle beat the living crap]] out of [[AssholeVictim Jasper]], who admittedly deserved it, but the amount of perverse glee they take in doing it cements them into this trope.
* FatIdiot: The combined intelligence of [[TheDitz Steven]] [[TooDumbToLive Universe]] and [[PsychopathicWomanchild Amethyst]] stuffed into a body [[YouAreFat three times their width that could be mistaken for a giant milk dud.]] Need we say more?



* YouAreFat: As part of their self given TheReasonYouSuck speech in "Know Your Fusion".

* WalkingSpoiler: [[spoiler:Upon close inspection, Rainbow Quartz bears a stronger resemblance to Pink Diamondís true form than Rose Quartz.]]


* DestructiveRomance: She is a prime example of an abusive relationship. In "Jail Break", Lapis Lazuli fuses with Jasper after the latter persuades her to, but then drags them both under the ocean, forcing Jasper to stay fused with her for months. This takes a heavy psychological toll on them both. In "Alone at Sea", Lapis admits that she was abusive towards Jasper, even while in the fusion ("I ''liked'' taking everything out on you [Jasper]. I needed you, I-I hated you! It was bad!"). However, Jasper seems too attached to the relationship they had, ''begging'' Lapis to become Malachite with her again. Lapis declines, saying that "what we had wasn't healthy" and that she never wants to feel like she did with Jasper again.



** [[spoiler:[[Recap/StevenUniverseS3E15AloneAtSea "Alone at Sea"]] reveals that the entire time, ''Lapis'' had been venting her anger at constantly being imprisoned on Jasper. This did a number on Lapis' mind, since she is horrified at what she did.]]

* IronicName: Malachite is associated with successful practical relationships, while Malachite's parts ends up at each other's throats.

* LovingAShadow: As Fusions are metaphors for relationship, Malachite might be representation of such a relationship. Jasper wanted Malachite because of the power she has (We can fly!) and Lapis wanted a punching bag to let her frustrations on her out, with neither party actually caring about the other person.

* MorphicResonance: From Lapis, Malachite has a similar hair shape, a slimmer face, upper arms and torso, a [[BareYourMidriff bared midriff]] and similarly fluid movements. From Jasper she gets the pale wild hair, skin stripes, fuller lips, SlasherSmile, pupils, thick remaining arms and lower torso, general outfit design and colossal size.

Added DiffLines:

* BeautyEqualsGoodness: {{Fusion|Dance}}s sometimes have extra features from being composed of two people, but how neatly they come together seems indicative of the health of the relationship. Stable, heroic fusions like Opal and [[spoiler:Garnet]] have relatively few extra features that mesh harmoniously with the rest of their appearance, while Sugilite, a destructive and potentially dangerous fusion, is more beastly in form, boasting five eyes, pronounced fangs, and two sets of arms that blend at the shoulder. [[AllYourPowersCombined Alexandrite]], while more 'balanced' than Sugilite, is still a bizarre-looking mess, which makes sense as she's all three Crystal Gems [[MindHive trying to act as one.]] All of the Crystal Gems together, including Rose Quartz or Steven, form into Obsidian, who manages to be beautiful and scary at the same time due to looking like an eight-armed volcano goddess. The antagonistic fusion Malachite is barely even humanoid, with a second torso where her hips should be, two independently-operating sets of eyes, and four extra arms that serve as legs. Her components [[spoiler:are using each other for selfish gain- Jasper is just using Lapis for the power boost, and Lapis is using the fusion to take control of and imprison Jasper]]. On the other end of the scale, there's Flourite, who's even less humanoid than Malachite, but only for being made of six Gems; the relationship between the six is stable and healthy, and as a result, she's far more cuddly in appearance.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://soundcloud.com/aivisura/steven-universe-rainbow-20-we-fused "Rainbow Quartz 2.0"]] features a bouncy piano theme with elements of "Steven's Shield".

Added DiffLines:

* ContraltoOfDanger: The majority of Fusions speak with relatively low female voices, indicating their strength and power. In the early episodes before Garnet was revealed to be a Fusion, being played by the deep-voiced Estelle was a stealth clue about her true nature.


* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: They're by far the largest fusion seen in the series thus far, if not the biggest Gem ''period'', as they're roughly the size of one of the [[spoiler:Diamond Mecha's hands]], which dwarfs the Diamonds themselves. To get a sense of scale, that red spot on her hand is ''Steven's shirt''.

* RapunzelHair: Their hair is quite voluminous and reaches past their knees.
