Added DiffLines:

** Spinel then uses the Rejuvenator on Steven. Much like with other Gem technology it leaves his body on the fritz but doesn't poof him which he nervously tries to play off as "nothing". Spinel then calls his bluff by slashing him again and again while [[LaughingMad laughing maniacally]].

** Also, her ''DeathGlare'' while she says this[[https://s265.photobucket.com/user/love_ookami/media/spinel%20deathglare_zpspixw3uvs.jpg.html needs to be seen to be believed.]] Hard to believe it's the former innocent and happy Spinel capable of such an expression, and you'd forgive any less brave character than Steven to crap themselves at the sight along with her line.

* Given that the movie's events seem to start on the same day that Steven made his "message to the universe", that means that, somehow, Spinel came up with her plan, obtained all of her resources, and traveled to Earth seeking revenge in a matter of ''hours''.



** She wasn't just abandoned by Pink Diamond in some normal way, either; Pink outright displays ''annoyance'' that Spinel kept trying to follow her around, highlighting a side of her that we didn't see often. This was pre-Colony Pink, and hence pre-CharacterDevelopment - she would've never abandoned a gem so ruthlessly after she gained more of a heart, but this was when Spinel was likely simply an asset, a ''toy'' to her that she had completely forgotten about to the point that even the other Diamonds needed some effort to remember who she was. Pink may have had her hands full with the war that ensued on her part sometime thereafter, but she simply wasn't always the "hero" that Rose Quartz would become.

Added DiffLines:

* During the VillainSong, Pearl vocally realizes who Spinel is, but no one else knows her. When Steven asks her to explain, Spinel visibly '''''[[BerserkButton snaps]]'''''. [[DeathGlare If looks could kill...]]


** The music (which is based on the backing of the song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmBB_-2hFqY "Drift Away"]] in the movie) is part of what makes the promo so ominous. It sounds like someone chopped up a recording of a classical piece and is playing single notes at a time, sometimes cutting off or reversing the audio. By the time the title screen appears, the audio sounds like it's glitching out and a [[HellIsThatNoise shrill electronic beeping]] overtakes the music.

** Just something to bear in mind, but the entire movie shows Steven taking craploads of punishment, with blood being shown. Hell, towards the end of the "Independent Together" number, Steg is visibly pained and struggling to keep the form together, and once he lands he defuses, with Steven looking close to collapsing. Matter of fact, he looks ''exactly'' the same as he did during the climax of "Change Your Mind". In other words, messing with his gem meant that he was slowly '''dying''' over the course of the movie.

Added DiffLines:

* Spinel inadvertently destabilizes the Injector and causes it to explode, destroying much of Beach City in a mushroom cloud that can be seen from Little Homeworld. This scene is made even worse by Greg and the Crystal Gems, fearing that Steven was caught in the explosion, crying out his name in horror.

Added DiffLines:

** And during this scene, while Spinel said a lot of scary things in the Movie, the line she says as she dangles Steven with a perilous fall, is the only time she says something threatening outside of her usual bombastic tone. And the sheer ''[[TranquilFury chillingly COLD calmness]]'' of the delivery, and the ''stark'' aversion of the NeverSayDie trope easily makes it the scariest thing she says in the film
