* SuperStrength: Sardonyx describes Sugilite's unique ability as just being really, really strong, and thus tries to test how Smoky Quartz measures up in that regard. They use a test-your-strength game where the hammer looks like Sugilite's weapon and the bar is labelled with the strengths of most of the other fusions [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers and Pearl]] (Sugilite>Opal>Garnet>Stevonnie>Pearl). While Smoky can't reach her power, according to the test, they're comparable to Garnet in terms of physical strength.

Added DiffLines:

* TestYourStrengthGame: Sardonyx sets up a variety of carnival-esque challenges for Smoky Quartz to attempt, including a high-striker.


* FourthWallObserver: Between summoning screens with footage of previous episodes that say "footage courtesy of Cartoon Network" and wondering aloud if Sugilite "needs to be paid even if she's not really appearing in this episode", as well as having deep knowledge of show business concepts that her mostly-ignorant-of-human-culture component parts shouldn't logically have, Sardonyx seems to have this power to some degree.

Added DiffLines:

* HoldYourHippogriffs: When Smoky Quartz fails to use a BreathWeapon, Sardonyx tells the audience that they're "[[WeAreExperiencingTechnicalDifficulties experiencing some magical difficulties]]".

Added DiffLines:

** Sardonyx mentions that fusions heightened something the components both can do and/or think then suddenly realizes what is heightened is Steven and Amethystís insecurities.


** Sardonyx wondering whether they need to pay "Sugilite" for her voiceover appearance that uses only stock clips from "Coach Steven" (as she was famously voiced by Creator/NickiMinaj) is a jab at the fact that the Fusions rarely come back in a speaking role due to them all being voiced by fairly famous/hard-to-get singers (Opal and Sugilite have only had one proper speaking role, while Sardonyx and Alexandrite have had two).

Added DiffLines:

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Garnet's OverlyLongScream of joy at seeing Smokey is reminiscent of how certain LGBTQ people or allies react to their friends' coming out.


* BitingTheHandHumor: When they return from a phony commercial break, Sardonyx makes a remark that they'd be off the air if the cartoon characters don't make the audience buy more products, a dig at Cartoon Network's notoriety for cancelling shows just because of insufficient merchandise sales.

Trying to use Alexandrite's devastating fire breath fails as well, and Smoky's jokes go from playful to self deprecating, to obvious self loathing as the fusion has latched onto Steven and Amethyst's feelings of not being good enough.

''us!''


Garnet's reaction is unbridled joy as she recognizes all this in an instant. Pearl's reaction is more stunned shock with a little disquiet. Pearl's rather consecrated response does nothing to diminish Garnet's overjoyed enthusiasm; she {{Squee}}s for nearly twenty seconds straight as Pearl fires a barrage of questions at the young fusion.
