This page contains spoilers. You Have Been Warned.
- Addictive Magic: Fusion can be addictive for the Gems involved as they receive the enhanced attributes of their partners (strength, confidence, power, precision, and others), and can make the Gem crave more opportunities if misused. This effect seems to be greatly amplified if the motivation for fusing was selfish on the part of their components. Both Lapis and Jasper developed some measure of addiction to being Malachite despite how much they loathed one another (in fact, in Lapis's case, it was because of it), with Jasper being much worse. Pearl also became addicted to fusing with Garnet, even going as far as to intentionally and repeatedly create a situation which would require Sardonyx's abilities.
- All Your Powers Combined: Fusions possess the powers and knowledge of their component parts and can mix them in unique ways.
- Anthropomorphic Personification: A fusion is a living embodiment of two Gems' relationship, positive or negative. Garnet even describes herself as being made of love.
- Beauty Equals Goodness: Fusions 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 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. Alexandrite, while more "balanced" than Sugilite, is still a bizarre-looking mess, which makes sense as she's all three Crystal Gems 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 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 Fluorite, 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.
- Bishōnen Line: Fusions are... odd, in this case, as combinations of certain Gems can either end up looking relatively human, or completely monstrous. The only really hard and fast rules seem to be that having more Gems involved (i.e. Sugilite, who is actually a fusion of three Gems, not two) makes a fusion look more inhuman than one which only involves two Gems (i.e. Garnet, who looks almost totally normal with the exception of a third eye). And it seems like an unwilling fusion (i.e. Malachite) will look much more horrific, due to the Gems involved not being in harmony with each other.
- Opal has four thin arms, separating at the shoulder.
- Rainbow Quartz has two pairs of eyes, but the normal number of arms and legs.
- Sardonyx has two pairs of eyes (one of which sticks outside her head into her hairline) and arms (one of which is on her torso), but is otherwise quite humanoid.
- The more feral Sugilite is a monstrous brute with four arms, five eyes, and a mouth full of fangs.
- The psychotic Malachite looks like some mythological centaur-esque beast, with four eyes, and four arm-like legs in addition to two regular arms.
- Alexandrite may look like a six-armed giant woman, but when the Fusion starts breaking down, when she gets pissed, or breathes fire, she reveals a second, T. rex-like mouth along her jawline.
- Aside from her third eye, Garnet is near indistinguishable from a normal Gem.
- Steven and Connie are so stable they can Fuse accidentally, and Garnet describes them as perfect. Stevonnie is by far the most humanoid of all, but that probably has more to do with them actually being mostly human.
- Smoky Quartz has two forearms extending from their left elbow, and otherwise looks normal.
- Sunstone has a bizarre, fiery appearance to her head, and has a top-heavy set of comically oversized arms along with a significantly smaller, spindly set.
- Obsidian seems to wear a mask on their head, but this is a second face that can open to reveal a second fiery maw, like Alexandrite's. They also have eight arms, but unlike most cases these are relatively evenly proportioned.
- Born as an Adult: A Fusion created for the first time has confusion as to their own identity (especially if the Fusion is accidental), but the maturity and intellect of their components. Physically they're larger than their components, which makes them look vaguely older except for the mostly human Stevonnie, who definitely looks older.
- Contralto of Danger: 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 stealthy clue about her true nature.
- Convenient Color Change: When two differently-colored Gems fuse, their merged form will have both gemstones change to match their new color scheme. This is closely related to Homeworld's taboo against cross-caste fusion; Gems are meant to be created a certain way for a certain task, so a gemstone changing is unwelcome, hence they're one kind of Gem negatively labelled "off color".
- Does This Remind You of Anything?: Fusion is frequently compared to romance, both textually and subtextually the things that make a stable fusion are also features of a healthy relationship, fusion between different castes is illegal on Homeworld, Garnet's Ruby and Sapphire explicitly describe themselves as in love. All of this makes the concept of a "forced" fusion, as between Jasper and Lapis Lazuli, extremely disturbing: it's akin to an abusive relationship at best.
- Fusion Dance: Gems combine together, often with a literal Magic Dance, to form a fusion. Fusion can involve more than two Gems, either by having all of them dancing together or having Fusions themselves perform Fusion; the end result is the same either way.
- Hybrid Power: If two Gems of the same type (say, two Pearls) were to Fuse, the resulting combination would still be a Pearl, and would only be slightly stronger and larger than the component Gems. However, if two different Gem types fuse, like Amethyst and Pearl into Opal, the resulting fusion is much more powerful than any of the component Gems could be alone. In "Back to the Moon", Sardonyx, a fusion of three different Gems, easily defeats a quintuple-Ruby fusion. Despite this, when Ruby and Sapphire first made Garnet, two different kinds of Gems Fusing was considered taboo due to Homeworld's Hive Caste System.
- Level-Up at Intimacy 5: Stronger emotional bonds between Gems makes the Fusion more capable of staying together, and thus functionally more powerful. A strong purpose will do in a pinch, but won't take the place of harmony. This appears to be especially true for Steven, who cannot fuse unless he and his partner are very much in sync: he can do it with Connie with relative ease, but was unable to do it with any of the Gems, even though they have strong love for each other. Eventually, he is able to fuse with Amethyst when both open up more to one another, namely Amethyst with her insecurities to Steven and Steven empathizing. The second time, they just need to join hands to do so, showing the bond.
- Made of Evil: When the components of a Fusion are not on terms with one another, i.e. Malachite, the results can be pretty nasty.
- Made of Good: When the components of a Fusion have a positive relationship with one another, either romantically or otherwise, the Fusion is much more stable. All of the Crystal Gems' Fusions count especially.
- Magic Dance: The fusion process may require the component Gems to dance together harmoniously. The dance metaphor actually works very well, though, as two people dancing as a pair are not acting as two separate individuals, but neither are they a single composite mind. The music heralding the Fusion dance is also symbolic, and it usually mixes the themes for the participating Gems (e.g. Opal's theme is Pearl's piano made a bit wilder and Amethyst's drum beats played more orderly). It's shown later that the dance is more of an aid than a requirement, as particularly harmonious partners (Ruby and Sapphire, Steven and Connie, and Topaz and Topaz) can fuse with barely more than a twirl.
- Mental Fusion: The Fusion of two Gems (re-)creates a new mind interrelated to, but distinct from, the components. All three (or more) minds exist in the same body simultaneously, but it's possible for the new mind to take sole control of the body and exhibit its own identity, even a desire for self-preservation. It's unknown if the components' minds can be permanently damaged this way, but they're functionally non-existent until the Fusion ends. Garnet has referred to Ruby and Sapphire in the third person on numerous occasions, Sardonyx has referred to her components in the third person ("If you ever have need of the lovely Sardonyx, let Pearl and Garnet know, I'll be there in a flash."), and Smoky Quartz has referred to Amethyst in the third person, and to Steven in both the second and third person ("I feel like Amethyst knows this.", "Steven, you beautiful genius. You pulled Amethyst out of her gem through fusion? [...] Gotta throw Steven...").
- Mental World: Steven contacts Lapis in Malachite's, and Garnet meditates into hers with Stevonnie, implying that every Fusion has one.
- Mind Hive: Garnet describes Fusion as being simultaneously neither one person nor two people, but a unique experience resulting from the interaction of the components. As long as the minds are in agreement, the body can act as an individual, but the Fusion tends to fail if the component minds fall out of sync. Garnet repeatedly describes Fusion as like "a conversation". At least three people can be distinguished in a spectrum of specificity: the component minds and the person they are together. This only increases the more gems are involved, as the minds of fusions between any components involved may also present themselves. Just like a "conversation", being Fused does not mean that one component is necessarily privy to every thought the other has, exhibited when Garnet was not able to deduce that Pearl was manipulating her into Fusing. This comes into play in Season 5 with the revelation that Rose was Pink Diamond. Rose and Pearl were able to keep it a secret despite repeatedly fusing with the other Crystal Gems.
- Morphic Resonance: Fusions have noticeable physical features in common with their component parts. They also have all Gems located in the same places, although they may change color and often change size (the latter is specifically non-diegetic). Word of God says that if a Fusion's component Gems have gemstones in the same spot (like say, Pearl and Peridot), their gems move to be side by side but otherwise remain in place.
- Motif Merger: In addition to combining their components' features, Fusions tend to combine their components' leitmotifs.
- Non-Human Humanoid Hybrid: Fusion can create hybrids of different types of gems, even when Steven is not involved, although their degree of humanoidness tends to vary.
- Non-Indicative Name: Apparently, hybrid Fusions aren't literally what they call themselves, but a unique blend of traits that can't be found in normal, singular Gems. For simplicity's sake, most hybrid Fusions pick the name of a singular gem that they roughly resemble. For instance, Garnet choose her name because her combined form somewhat resembles normal, unfused Garnets (like Hessonite), but her capabilities, powers, and personalities are nothing like them (nor do they share a voice actor like gems of the same type). Blue Diamond mocks Garnet for the comparison, and seemingly even for coming up with a name for herself in the first place.Blue Diamond: Does that call herself a Garnet? [laughs] What would you have her do? Enter with the Demantoids? The Hessonites? The Pyropes?
- Our Giants Are Bigger: Fusions are bigger than the Gems that make them up, and their size correlates to the size and number of their components. Many are dozens of feet tall. Fusions of two small Gems are only slightly larger than average humans, and a rare few aren't even that big. Judging by Sugilite and the Ruby fusions, a Fusion of at least three Gems will be enormous even if all the components are very small. If the Cluster, a forced Fusion of millions of Gem shards, ever formed a body, it would be larger than the Earth.
- Power High: Apparently the reason both Pearl and Amethyst like Fusing with Garnet so much is because she imparts strength and confidence they don't have alone.
- The Power of Friendship: Fusion is a manifestation of all emotionally intimate relationships, not strictly of the romantic variety. It can just as well be based on friendship or familial love.
- The Power of Love: It doesn't seem to be a requirement, but if the two components love each other, it makes the Fusion easier to maintain.
- Race Name Basis: Notably subverted; one would think hybrid fusions, like most Gems, go by what type of Gem they are, Stevonnie being the obvious exception because one of their components is human. In truth, they exist outside of the Gems' Hive Caste System and pick their own names, usually ones of gem types they resemble. This is why Garnet never refers to herself by name in the flashback in "The Answer", and Fluorite has kept the same name even after adding more gems to herself.
- Serious Business: While common for other Gems in the past, Garnet's unique experience allows her to treat Fusion as sacred. You do not want to abuse the concept in front of her.
- Shapeshifter Mashup: The more unbalanced the Fusion and/or the worse the component Gems' relationship is, the more bits and pieces from said Gems stick out in the resulting chimeric Fusion, with Malachite being a prime example.
- Sharing a Body: A mental element of Fusion other than having a Mind Hive. There are still two people in there, distinguishable by how in or out of sync they are. They can talk to themselves out loud but can emphatically share feelings (such as Stevonnie feeling social anxiety from Connie).
- Voice of the Legion: Stable Fusions tend to have a single, unique voice. Unstable Fusions (like Malachite and occasionally Alexandrite, though in her case, her voice still speaks with her components) will speak with the voices of their components.
- Weapon of Choice: Fusions can wield any of their component Gems' weapons with the same level of skill. Fusions can also combine those weapons into a new and unique weapon for themselves.
- Yin-Yang Bomb: Fusions that combine extremely disparate parts produce a more powerful result, whereas Fusions of the same type of Gem just produce a bigger (and only marginally more powerful) version of the sources. Ruby and Sapphire, individually small and weak Gems, form the extremely powerful Garnet. A Fusion of three Rubies was easily felled by Rose Quartz, who wasn't even using her sword.
Crystal Gem Fusions
The fusion of Ruby and Sapphire. See here for information on her.
Opal: [chuckles] All you wanna do / Is see me turn into...
Steven: [whispers] A giant woman!
The fused form of Pearl and Amethyst. While the two have to be in complete sync with each other to maintain the fusion, Opal herself is extremely stable and stoic due to how complementary her components personalities are.
- Archer Archetype: She's very calm and composed, and she fuses Amethyst and Pearl's weapons together to form an Energy Bow.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her form in "Together Alone" incorporates Amethyst's jagged tank top as her top being torn off, exposing her waist.
- Contralto of Danger: Despite how relatively high the voices of her two reagents are, Opal has a deep, soothing voice that could put even Garnet to shame.
- Energy Bow: Combines Amethyst and Pearl's weapons to form a solid bow that shoots exploding energy arrows.
- Foil: To Garnet, though it only makes sense in retrospect with the revelation of Garnets true nature. Both are fusions of two Gems with extremely different personalities, and those personalities combine to make the fusion stoic and centered. However, while Garnets components genuinely love each other, making the fusion very easy to maintain, Pearl and Amethyst get on each others nerves constantly, causing Opal to be incredibly unstable despite her calmness.
- Forgetful Jones: According to Garnet in the Guide companion book, Amethyst's ability to live in the moment combined with Pearl's single-minded nature allows Opal to achieve a balance and peace of mind that is so strong that Opal can sometimes forget what she's supposed to be doing. That's why, after rescuing Steven, she completely forgot about finding the Heaven Beetle, the mission they were on in the first place.
- The Dove short featuring her just ran with this, she's so forgetful that she frequently has to ask for her lines.
- Godzilla Threshold: Played with. The reason Opal was saved for dire situations is not that she's dangerous, but because emergencies were the only times Amethyst and Pearl could agree on anything. Later on, though, the two are on good enough terms to fuse for something as mundane as lifting a heavy object.
- Ironic Name: Opals are said to prevent forgetfulness and confusion.
- Lady of War: Opal inherits Pearl's perfectionist nerve; she's collected and composed and she battles with flowing, graceful, and precise archery.
- Leitmotif: "Opal" combines features of Amethyst's and Pearl's leitmotifs, utilizing Amethyst's synth drum and bass and Pearl's piano. Because of their "influences" on one another, Amethyst's swinging rhythm is turned into straight beats while Pearl's piano is more wild and dynamic.
- Long-Range Fighter: She's the only Crystal Gem with a ranged weapon, though she can take down enormous Gem monsters barehanded.
- Mage Marksman: She uses an Energy Bow to fire magic arrows. What's interesting is that these arrows are uniquely able to bubble Gems.
- Meaningful Name: Opals are associated with inspiration, creativity and imagination. It reflects both Pearl's focus on the intellect and Amethyst's free spirit. Opals also combine aspects of pearls and amethysts amethysts are made of silica, while pearls form in water. Opal is hydrated silica.
- Morphic Resonance: Opal has Amethyst's purple skin, full lips, and white Rapunzel Hair plus Pearl's height, nose, and overall outfit design, even getting a waist-wrap after Pearl regenerates to correspond to her Giant Waist Ribbon. She also retains Pearl's ballerina-esque fighting style.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Opal has four arms and can make use of both Pearl's spear and Amethyst's whip. She can even combine both weapons into a powerful magic bow.
- Mystical White Hair: That reaches her feet.
- Only Sane Man: Due to her focus on the task at hand and in no small part to how complementary her component Gems as well she comes off as one of the more stable fusions. There's no chance of her going berserk like Sugilite, becoming "addictive" like Sardonyx, being inherently unhealthy like Malachite, or susceptible to self-doubt like Smoky Quartz or Stevonnie.
- Opposites Attract: Subverted. Their opposing personalities make it difficult for Pearl and Amethyst to maintain their fusion in anything other than the direst of circumstances, and the slightest distraction tends to make them split apart. Possibly played straight in later episodes, after the two started working through their emotional hangups and learn to rely on one another more: Amethyst makes an optimistic offer to fuse for a simple task, which Pearl accepts and they accomplish without any trouble. The fact that they don't have the deep emotional bond that Ruby and Sapphire is the main difference between Opal and Garnet (or possibly Rainbow Quartz as well).
- Out of Focus: She's the only fusion between Garnet, Amethyst, or Pearl who hasn't had an episode entirely centered on her, like Sugilite or Sardonyx had; even "Giant Woman" was more about fusion as a concept than her specifically.
- Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches to her ankles like Amethyst, but it's orderly and straight like Pearl's.
- Recursive Ammo: She can fire one arrow that splits into many small arrows, each precisely aimed at a different target.
- She's Got Legs: Just like Pearl, Opal is an acrobatic Dance Battler and 2/3 of her body consists of her legs.
- Statuesque Stunner: Unlike Pearl, Opal clearly has some of Amethyst's beefiness to her, and thus actually looks like she's capable of the maneuvers she does. Add that she's at least 12 feet tall, and Steven's song "Giant Woman" fits her like a glove. (On a side note, of the known two-Gem fusions, only Malachite is larger while Opal is considerably taller than Smoky Quartz and Rainbow Quartz.)
- Straight to the Pointe: In what little screen time she has, she's always standing on her toes, even when moving.
- The Stoic: Seems to possess Pearl's grace combined with Amethyst's laid-back nature.
- Super Strength: She is capable of physically ripping monsters apart bare-handed. "Know Your Fusion" implies that she is even stronger than Garnet, a fellow two-Gem fusion who regularly demonstrates impressive feats of strength.
- Team Mom: Carried this trait over from Pearl, Opal interacts with Steven (and Connie in the non-canon Dove Self-Esteem short) much like a mother would.
- Unlimited Wardrobe: Although cross-Gem fusions tend to change appearance a bit when reforming depending on things like changes in the relationship between the components, because they feel like it, or changes in the outfits of their components, and Opal rarely appears, thanks to either Amethyst or Pearl having been poofed and reformed between every one of her few appearances she has a different outfit every time.
The fused form of Garnet and Amethyst. The resulting combination of personalities is a building-sized fusion who likes to smash stuff. Her personality is much closer to Ruby and Amethyst than Sapphire's.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Sugilite is even taller than both Opal and Sardonyx, and, if left unwatched, can become a threat."Why do you have to look up to her, aside from in a literal sense?"
- Awesome, yet Impractical: Sugilite is incredibly powerful, strong, and easier to form than Opal... but also nearly impossible to control and risks running rampant if formed. Furthermore, due to Character Development, Alexandrite (who is more powerful than Sugilite) seems to have become far more stable and easier to form, and as such is now typically used in situations that would call for Sugilite. She's also this from a meta perspective, as her voice actress is incredibly pricey and hard to get, something Sardonyx lampshades via Breaking the Fourth Wall.
- Ax-Crazy: Sugilite loves trashing stuff. And the longer the fusion, the worse her temper gets.
- Bizarre Alien Limbs: She has two upper arms that branch into four about halfway between her shoulders and elbows.
- The Bus Came Back: She appeared in a flashback in Issue 19 of the 2017-2018 comic book series, helping build Steven's house. Excepting an appearance via Stock Footage in "Know Your Fusion", she hadn't appeared in the show since "Cry for Help" in 2015, and didn't have a speaking role since her debut in "Coach Steven" in 2014. She finally reappears in the Future episode "Snow Day", shapeshifted into "Classic" Steven and still without speaking.
- Cleavage Window: Unlike Amethyst's shirt, Sugilite's has a collar but also an opening so Amethyst's gem is still visible. There isn't any cleavage for it to show, though.
- Cool Big Sis: Interestingly enough, despite the fact that her reckless nature tends to unintentionally get him caught in the crossfire, she's fairly chill with Steven. Which makes sense, because while Amethyst may not always get along with Pearl, both she and Garnet are incredibly caring and protective of Steven.
- Dark Is Evil: Zigzagged. Her color scheme is black and very dark purple, and she's not evil, but she is extremely violent and unstable.
- Epic Flail: Her weapon of choice is a mega-sized version of Garnet's Power Fists clasped together and tethered by Amethyst's whip.
- Everyone Has Standards: Her silence during her short appearance in "Cry for Help" may imply that she shared Garnet's sentiment when it comes to Pearl tricking Garnet just to fuse into Sardonyx.
- Extra Eyes: She has two eyes on each side of her face, plus Garnet's Third Eye on her forehead.
- Fangs Are Evil: She has rather prominent fangs, and she's a lot less benevolent than the other Gems.
- Fatal Flaw: She has both Amethyst's recklessness and Garnet's pride, which is not a very great combo. Foreshadowed shortly before the actual fusion takes place.Garnet: We don't need to be careful. We just need to be huge!
Amethyst: ALRIGHT! LET'S WRECK THIS JOINT!
- Her fusion goes much smoother than Opal's, and her personality is the complete opposite. She comes across as an exaggerated version of Amethyst. This actually makes sense in light of "Jail Break"; Garnet is a stable fusion of two opposing personalities, so throwing Amethyst into the mix naturally upsets that balance in favor of the more hot-blooded Ruby and Amethyst.
- She's also one to Sardonyx, who is powerful, but more careful, controlled and easygoing, while Sugilite is reckless and headstrong.
- Godzilla Threshold: In "Cry for Help", Garnet makes it clear that Sugilite is never to be used again unless absolutely necessary. After how she went out of control last time, they can't take any chances. Unfortunately for Pearl, her own selfish desires to remain fused as Sardonyx forced Garnet's hand.
- HeelFace Turn: She ended up as the antagonist in her first appearance and refused to unfuse. By the second time she's formed Amethyst has worked out some of her issues and was feeling guilty over seeing the results of them going out of control last time, so Sugilite gets the job done and separates without any issues.
- Heroic RRoD: Once Garnet and Amethyst manage to get separated from the fusion, their bodies are in a lot of pain because of all the physical work Sugilite forces their bodies to endure.
- Incoming Ham: "Hahahahahaaa! I forgot how great it feels to be me!"
- Ironic Name: In gemstone mythos, sugilite stones are known to be gems that balance the mind and soul and serve as protection from anger and negative feelings. The character Sugilite is pretty much the Token Evil Teammate of the Crystal Gems. It's implied that she's much more controlled in her second appearance; Amethyst's Character Development since then may have resulted in a more balanced fusion.
- Leitmotif: "Sugilite" combines Amethyst's drum and clap and Garnet's synths. The theme makes the synths higher and crazier and the clap louder and stronger, placing a high emphasis on the danger that Sugilite represents.
- Megaton Punch: Can deliver one by winding her arms around each other in a manner reminiscent of a fusion between Popeye and Donkey Kong.
- Mental Fusion: The longer she is fused, the stronger the composite Sugilite personality becomes, and Garnet and Amethyst grow weaker and weaker to resist her.Pearl: You've been fused for too long. You're losing yourselves!
Sugilite: I am myself, and I'm sick of being split up!
- Merging Mistake: While there is nothing wrong with Sugilite on her own, she at the beginning of the series refuses to defuse back to Garnet and Amethyst and attacked Pearl.
- Morphic Resonance: Sugilite has Amethyst's purple color scheme (skin, clothes, etc.), her Rapunzel Hair, body type (though somewhat bigger), and overall outfit design. It's also possible that Sugilite carries Amethyst's boots, though that could also come from Ruby. She has Garnet's third eye (and pupils like Garnet in her middle three eyes) and shades. As seen in the pictures, her skin tone became slightly lighter after both Garnet and Amethyst reformed themselves, getting Garnet's dual-color motif.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Even more so than Opal because she's so unstable.
- Mythical Motifs: Her appearance is heralded by the image of a dragon breathing forth her form.
- In addition to invoking the Japanese Oni, she also invoked the Indian Goddess Kali with her wild long hair and destructive tendencies.
- No Pronunciation Guide: Her name is pronounced "SOO-ga-light", but the real mineral is properly pronounced "SOO-gi-light" (after the Japanese petrologist Kenichi Sugi).
- OOC Is Serious Business: The second time Sugilite was formed, she says nothing, but quietly smashes the communication hub into pieces too small for Pearl to repair it. A truly quiet Sugilite is just as disconcerting as her usual personality, showing just how angry Garnet was with Pearl after learning about Sardonyx was being used on false pretenses. Amethyst was not in the best mood, either, at the time of fusion.
- Pride: Something she gets from Garnet (and Sapphire). Unlike Garnet, whose pride is typically seen as a good thing, Sugilite's pride is depicted as a negative quality, as her overconfidence in her strength leads to her getting too destructive.
- Punny Name: Along with being the name of a mineral, it's possible that (considering what she's best at) her name is also a play on "suggillate" (to beat black and blue).
- Sinister Shades: She has a pair of Triangle Shades that cover four of her five eyes; she's even scarier without them.
- Super Strength: Sugilite has extreme brute strength, more so than her fellow Gem Fusion, Opal, because Sugilite possesses Garnet's power. "Know Your Fusion" reveals this is her explicit unique ability, making her this trope by fusion standards.
- Token Evil Teammate: She's the only Crystal Gem Fusion to be an antagonist.
- With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: She is the culmination of Garnet's power and Amethyst's wild nature, making her extremely powerful but also extremely vicious."Don't ya know that a power that big comes with a bigger expense?"
- Yōkai: Her appearance draws similarities to oni.
The showy fusion of Garnet and Pearl.
- Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: Her body seems to be made up of three segments that she can rotate independently.Steven: Wow, you're so articulated!
- Animal Motif: The light from her fusion takes the form of dragonflies. A burst of dragonflies are created when she dissipates her hammer. Lion even eats one. In "Know Your Fusion", Sardonyx is seen in a crouching position, coupled with the tails of her coat and the shape of her head to give her a cricket-like appearance. Even the creaking noises of her "doll-joints" sounds like the chirping of a cricket.
- Arc Symbol: She has a star on her undershirt and pink diamonds on her shoes, which is the symbol of the late Pink Diamond. This was foreshadowing that Pearl was Pink Diamond's Pearl and Rose was Pink Diamond.
- Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Like all the Gems, Sardonyx's appearance and color scheme reflects her gem name. Sardonyx is composed of brown, black, and white colors, so she has brown skin and wears a black and white performance tuxedo.
- Attention Whore: She hijacked Steven and Amethyst's reveal of Smoky Quartz, and then trying to get them to reveal something "special" about them, when Smoky Quartz is not as much as a showoff as Sardonyx is. Sardonyx feels very bad about it once she realizes what she'd done.
- Badass Boast:"Hmm... 'smash' would be the word to describe what someone else might do. Now, the proper words to describe yours truly are: specific, intelligent, accurate, faultless, elegant, controlled, surgical, graceful, and... POWERFULLLLL!!! But yes, occasionally I am known to 'smash'."
- Bishōnen Line: A very beautiful fusion and not out of control like Sugilite is.
- Boisterous Bruiser: She really knows how to put the "ham" in "hammer".
- Catchphrase: "Gooood evening, everybody!"
- Cool Big Sis: She is very happy to finally meet Steven and is generally very kind to him, even putting on a show for his sake while making her pole hammer. She's friendly and encouraging to Smoky Quartz as well, although she unintentionally talks them down.
- Cool Shades: Similar to Alexandrite's below.
- Cultured Badass: Considering she's wearing a tuxedo as her garb, she certainly has the look down.
- Dark-Skinned Blonde: Sardonyx has sandy yellow hair, against a skin close to Garnet's original color scheme.
- Drop the Hammer: Her Gem weapon is made by turning Pearl's spear and Garnet's gauntlets into the shaft and head of a giant pole hammer◊. Its cartoonish appearance, rubbery floppiness, and comical proportions give the impression of it as a rubber mallet stage prop, fitting her stage magician theme.
- Extra Eyes: Like Rainbow Quartz, she has four eyes, with the top pair acting as eyebrows and sticking outside her head into her hairline.
- The Fashionista: Her outfit includes the aforementioned shades, as well as a tuxedo, which contribute to her showy demeanor.
- Flash Step: Sardonyx's moves in Save The Light shows her vanishing and reappearing in flashes of light to attack enemies. Whether this is meant to portray a new gem ability or simply her moving very fast remains to be seen.
- Foil: She's a direct contrast to Sugilite as much as Amethyst is to Pearl careful and precise in comparison to the other fusion's brute force. Sugilite is modeled as a professional wrestler, while Sardonyx is a stage magician: both performers, but with very different performances. Additionally, their Animal Motifs are opposites; Sugilite is associated with dragons, vicious, brutish and destructive. Sardonyx, however, is associated with dragonflies, swift, colorful and graceful. Further, Sugilite's debut had her unwilling to unfuse until she was knocked unconscious, whereas Sardonyx gracefully returns to being Pearl and Garnet once she has fulfilled her task; both enjoyed existing and showing off for Steven, but while Sugilite grasped her existence and refused to let go, Sardonyx was simply happy for the opportunity.
- Also, ultimately using Sardonyx to destroy the Communications Hub was a worse idea than using Sugilite, but for opposite reasons. Sugilite was so reckless in destroying the tower that she was dangerous to everyone around her, and became the villain of "Coach Steven" because of her refusal to unfuse. The problem with Sardonyx was that her grace and power was addictive to Pearl and made her want to keep re-fusing, and gracefully disassembling the tower gave Pearl the opportunity to repair it.
- Fourth-Wall Observer: She leans on or outright breaks the fourth wall several times during "Know Your Fusion", up to and including showing clips of previous episodes with the clear caption "footage courtesy of Cartoon Network" and asking off screen if they still have to pay her if she doesn't appear in the episode in reference to Sugilite.
- Fun Personified: She's flashy, dramatic, and an overall entertainer. Even her hammer has a little bounce in its handle.
- Hartman Hips: She has a thin waist and large hips, not unlike Garnet, one of her component Gems.
- Innocently Insensitive: Much like Pearl, she tends to insult Amethyst without meaning it or not considering it a big deal. Realizing that she's hurting Smoky Quartz with this behavior is a big My God, What Have I Done? moment for her.
- It's All About Me: Due to a combination of Garnet's confidence and Pearl's insecurity-fueled arrogance, her prideful nature gets her caught up in herself a few times, but her heart of gold usually keeps her from letting it go overboard. Usually.
- Lady of War: She's absurdly powerful, but while she smashes up the transmission tower, she explains that she's quite graceful and can hold back her power when she sees fit. Occasionally, she sees the need to "smash".
- Large Ham: Introduces herself similar to a radio host or sports announcer. Heck, even the light from her fusion is hammy, parting and turning into curtains and dragonflies that flutter away from her.
- Leitmotif: "Sardonyx", a swinging, playful piece reminiscent of a showtune or game show.
- Lightning Bruiser: She is very fast, agile and powerful.
- Magicians Are Wizards: Zig-zagged; Sardonyx is a genuine magical being with a Stage Magician aesthetic, but "wizard" wouldn't be a very accurate description. Normally, her "magic tricks" are just standard gem abilities with extra flair. When she's in her room of the Crystal Temple, it's another story entirely.
- Meaningful Name:
- Sardonyx is associated with happiness, optimism and victory in gemology; Sardonyx herself is very bubbly and cheerful, Garnet and Pearl in particular seem more confident after fusing into her and Pearl describes achieving goals together as Sardonyx as "victories".
- Sardonyx is the secondary gemstone of August, after peridot. Peridot is the main focus of the arc that introduces Sardonyx and her presence ends up usurping a lot of focus that would have gone to tracking Peridot down. Her appearance even draws some similarities with Peridot; she has the triangular hair, translucent glasses, segmented articulated limbs and a gemstone on her forehead.
- Her name also seems to be a play on the term "sardonic", as in "to be grimly mocking or cynical". While there's nothing grim about her, Sardonyx has poked fun at the show by breaking the fourth wall...
- Mickey Mousing: Her joint rotations are often accompanied by a synthesized ratcheting sound that doesn't quite seem to be actually coming from her body.
- Morphic Resonance: She combines Garnet's hips and Pearl's svelte figure to make a slim but wide-hipped figure.
- Mr. Vice Guy: Her showmanship sometimes verges on self-absorption, but she's otherwise a total sweetheart who's filled with exuberance. She's very delighted to meet Steven for the first time, and she later states that she'll always be there when he needs her.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Just like Sugilite, she has four arms and is called in to take down a communication hub several times her size.
- Mundane Utility: Formed in "Know Your Fusion" to... host a talk show to introduce Smoky Quartz.
- Noblewoman's Laugh: "OH-HO-HO-HO-HOOOOO!" Bonus points for her making the pose as well.
- Performance Artist: She's big, she's boisterous, and she loves to show off her talents.
- Pride: Seeing as both of her components are very proud individuals, it makes sense that she'd have a considerable dose of the same. Unlike Sugilite, however, Sardonyx is a fairly positive example of pride, boasting cheerfully of her power while also knowing exactly when to stop.
- Punctuated Pounding: Her Badass Boast up there? Nearly every adjective is accompanied by her hammer smacking a pillar out of the com-hub.
- Secondary Character Title: She is introduced in the third StevenBomb, officially referred to as "Week of Sardonyx", which deals with a story arc instigated by her appearance.
- She's Got Legs: Just like Opal before her, Sardonyx's body is over half legs. Combining Garnet's statuesque figure and Pearl's Balanchine legs, they've been compared to a cricket's.
- Sophisticated as Hell: In "Cry For Help", when she gets ready to dismantle the tower:Steven: Are you gonna smash stuff with your war hammer?
Sardonyx: Hm... "smash" is the word that one would use to describe what... someone else might do. [speaking of Sugilite; Amethyst scowls] Now... The proper words used to describe yours truly are... Specific! Intelligent! Accurate! Faultless! Elegant. Controlled! Surgical! Graceful! aaandd... Powerful! But yes, occasionally, I am known... to smash.
- Stage Magician: She dresses like one, and perhaps for Steven's benefit, she fuses Pearl's spear and Garnet's gauntlets in the style of a magic trick.
- Still Wearing the Old Colors: She has diamonds on her shoes, which is a symbol of Homeworld and more specifically Pink Diamond, though the more obvious star on her chest is up to date. The pink diamonds were foreshadowing that Pearl was Pink Diamond's Pearl and Rose was Pink Diamond, ironically meaning Pearl was still wearing the symbol of the one she was loyal to.
- This Is a Drill: She can turn her hammer into a giant drill.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Fusing into her brings some of Pearl's insecurities to light, causing her to manipulate Garnet into Fusing again, which leads to a five-episode story arc dealing with the fallout.
The fusion of Rose Quartz and Pearl.
- Ambiguous Situation: It's unclear if Rainbow Quartz is her (original) real name or simply the name of a Pearl/Rose Quartz fusion in general, as she's actually a Diamond/Pearl Fusion instead, a fact kept secret from everyone except Pearl.
- Anime Hair: Rainbow Quartz's hair takes into account Rose's voluminous Rapunzel Hair and Pearl's pointy hairstyle, creating a spreading wedge-like hairstyle that cascades down her back.
- The Cameo: In "Now We're Only Falling Apart", she makes a brief appearance as Rose and Pearl almost fuse into her for the first time.
- Dance Battler: We don't actually see her fighting, though it's reasonable to expect that she was a good fighter, given her components, and her outfit has a club dancer theme to complement Pearl's ballet dancer attire and Rose's ballroom dancer style.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Like Rose, she doesn't wear shoes, though her socks cover part of her feet.
- Everything's Better with Rainbows: True to her name, there are quite a number of hues present within her design.
- Extra Eyes: On the top and bottom of her face; the top ones come from Pearl and the bottom ones come from Rose. They move independently, indicating the different reaction the other has.
- Foreshadowing: In retrospect, it's incredibly obvious that her psychical traits, like her slender body, square face and curved nose come from Pink Diamond, not Rose Quartz.
- Living Prop: She doesn't have any characterization beyond what can be gleamed from her components, as she only appears for part of one song and says nothing.
- Meaningful Name: Rainbow aura quartz is useful for those in dysfunctional relationships by helping to see what's ahead and releasing resentment. By fusing into Rainbow Quartz, Pearl got to release her resentment and jealousy on Greg and help him get closer to Rose thanks to his attempts at fusing with her, which lead to them taking the first step into a better relationship.
- Mind Hive: Pearl and Rose's minds apparently maintain some degree of independence, especially since Rose didn't pick up on Pearl's Shipping Torpedo plan.
- Mismatched Eyes: Her top ones are blue like Pearl's, and the bottom ones are black like Rose's.
- Morphic Resonance: Rainbow Quartz has Pearl's eyes (the top ones), pointy nose, long legs and flexibility plus Rose's eyes (the bottom ones), voluptuous body and mouth shape. Her hair takes Pearl's hairstyle and applies it all over like Rose's curls.
- Multicolored Hair: Just like the rainbow quartz gemstone, her hair has more than one color and changes hues according to the lighting.
- Navel Window: Like Rose, she has a small opening to show her gemstone. Instead of being entirely star-shaped, the bottom half is diamond-shaped.
- Non-Indicative Name: Downplayed; as she's actually a fusion of a Diamond and a Pearl, none of her components are actually Quartz Gems, though it is still Meaningful Name according to gemstone mythology, and the "rainbow" part is accurately displayed by her wildly varying color scheme.
- One-Shot Character: Her only appearance is in "We Need To Talk". Pearl and Rose nearly fuse into during the flashback in "Now We're Only Falling Apart", but the two come undone before she's able to form fully.
- Posthumous Character: She's formed out of Rose and Pearl; when Rose gave birth to Steven, Rainbow Quartz died with her. A fusion of Steven and Pearl does appear later on in the series, but is a different person from Rose and Pearl's Rainbow, just like Steven is different person from Rose.
- Rapunzel Hair: Rainbow Quartz has long hair that reaches down to her hips.
- Semi-Divine: Is actually half-Diamond, which Gemkind worship as gods, making her divine by their standards if not in actuality.
- Statuesque Stunner: She is easily a head taller than Rose herself, though notably, she's actually on the small side as fusions go. Given that Rose's true form is much larger and fusions are always bigger than their components, it's implied she's intentionally undershooting her size.
- Still Wearing the Old Colors: The emblem cut in her clothes is a combination of the Crystal Gems' star and Homeworld's diamond, Similar to how Sardonyx has pink diamonds on her shoes. This is Foreshadowing the fact half of her is Pink Diamond.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Towards Greg, simultaneously. As an extension of Rose, she's using the Fusion to impress him and show off in his music video, but as Pearl, she's doing it to show him up.
- The Voiceless: She never says anything onscreen
Rainbow Quartz 2.0
The fusion of Pearl and Steven.
- Aliens of London: He has a British accent, even though Pearl and Steven don't have it.
- Ambiguous Gender: To be expected, seeing as he's a fusion between the male Steven and the female-presenting Pearl, but interestingly, they look and sound a little bit more boyish than Steven's other fusions, right down to having a male voice actor. It was later confirmed Rainbow goes by both he/him and they/them pronouns, making him the first fusion and second Gem to do so.
- Bare Your Midriff: Steven's shirt is small, resulting in his navel showing.
- Breaking Old Trends: The first fusion to have a male voice, as even Steven's other fusions have female voice actors. Also the first fusion that doesn't enlarge their components in size, being only slightly taller than Pearl.
- Cool Big Bro: He has a very good rapport with Onion and frequently offers to babysit him.
- Expy: Of Mary Poppins, right down to their Large Ham tendencies and use of a parasol. One production drawing and the podcast described him as a fusion of Mary Poppins and Bert, Dick Van Dyke's character in the same film. In another reference to the character, he spends "A Very Special Episode" more or less babysitting Onion, trying to teach him to clean up after himself.
- Extra Eyes: Like the previous Rainbow Quartz, he has two pairs of eyes, with the top pair belonging to Pearl and the bottom pair belonging to Steven.
- Flight: Can fly on his folded umbrella fast enough to catch Ruby and Sapphire's falling gemstones as if it were a witch's broom, no less. His second appearence has him reclining on it in the air, as well.
- Foreshadowing: The fact that he's visually completely different from the previously seen Rainbow Quartz foreshadows the revelation later in his debut episode that Steven is definitely not the same person as Rose.
- Improbable Weapon User: Their "weapon" is a parasol.
- Large Ham: He has Pearl's dramatic flair and Steven's exuberance, resulting in this trope.
- Legacy Character: He's the second Rainbow Quartz, due to Steven being definitively different from Rose.
- Leitmotif: "Rainbow Quartz 2.0" features a bouncy piano theme with elements of "Steven's Shield".
- Light 'em Up: They carry over Pearl's existing light-based abilities with a rainbow flourish. In "Unleash the Light" they can create Hard Light barriers and fire energy blasts from their parasol.
- Mind over Matter: They can magically move and levitate objects, which they use to animate Onion's toys. Oddly, this power seems to come from his umbrella, as Onion was able to control things himself while holding it (even doing things Rainbow didn't want him to do).
- Nice Guy: Like his components, especially Steven, he is caring, friendly, kind, and accepting. So much so that Onion considers him to be his best friend.
- Parasol of Pain: His umbrella acts as a Magic Wand that levitate things, though we never see him fight with it.
- Parasol of Prettiness: His Weapon of Choice is a parasol they can ride on like a broomstick. Given how fusion weapons generally work, it's probably formed from Steven's shield on top of Pearl's spear.
- Pretty Boy: He has this aesthetic to him, being elegant, youthful, androgynous, and pretty.
- Pungeon Master: He exhibits Steven's love of wordplay.
- Rhymes on a Dime: Ever since his Establishing Character Moment, he even rhymes when he isn't singing.
Alexandrite!Amethyst: I'M HUNGRY!
Alexandrite!Pearl: [pushes food away] I don't think so!
Alexandrite!Garnet: Cut it out, you two!
The combined form of Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl. With the death of Rose, she's likely the most powerful fusion they can make. Without Steven, that is.
- Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: As articulated as Sardonyx.
- All Your Powers Combined: According to Guide to the Crystal Gems, she uses all of the weapons of her components and their fusions with equal skill. She showcases this while fighting Malachite.
- Anime Hair: Her hair resembles the recurring five-pointed star.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: She's even larger than Sugilite, and able to lift a city bus like a toy. Lampshaded by Attack The Light, where the achievement for forming her is "Really Really Giant Woman".
- Body Horror: She has a second mouth on her throat and her face splits apart when the fusion breaks down due to Pearl's unwillingness to eat food.
- Breath Weapon: She can breathe a massive stream of fire from her second mouth, an ability presumably inherited from Ruby, who has fire powers.
- Conjoined Eyes: Her shades resemble this.
- Cool Shades: Courtesy of Garnet.
- Foil: A good guy fusion, opposing the (mostly) evil Malachite. Besides being kaiju-sized fusions, Alexandrite has a fire breath attack, while Malachite has ice powers.
- Godzilla Threshold: She's extremely hard to maintain due to Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl's conflicting personalities; thus, she's rarely formed. But when the situation is dire such as the escape of Malachite, the Crystal Gems can form her without a second thought. That said, the Crystal Gems have since been shown to be able to form Alexandrite easily, implying their Character Development has made it easier to do so.
- Guttural Growler: Sardonyx even wonders if her fire breath is the cause of it. It becomes especially apparent when she speaks through her second mouth.
- Heroic RRoD: To a somewhat lesser extent than Sugilite, taking Alexandrite into battle takes a strain on the Gems' bodies. They defuse after Alexandrite collapses to her knees on the beach and all the Gems look exhausted; Amethyst lies face down in the sand.
- Jabba Table Manners: A donation from Amethyst with a little help from Pearl spitting the chewed food out.
- Leitmotif: "Alexandrite" Combines Garnet's bass, Amethyst's synch-drums, and Pearl's piano.
- Lightning Bruiser: Alexandrite is fast enough to catch up to a speeding bus with a good head start on her by running and is incredibly powerful. This also extends to her weapons, as she's capable of rapidly cycling between them in a blink of an eye which is how she finishes Malachite off.
- Limit Break: In Attack The Light, she's used in the strongest attack that can be performed, and basically pounds the enemy into the dirt.
- Master of All: According to the Guide to the Crystal Gems◊, her Weapon of Choice is "all of them".
- She uses Opal's bow, Sugilite's flail, Sardonyx's mallet, Pearl's spear, Garnet's fists, Amethyst's whip, and her own fire breath in her battle against Malachite.
- Meaningful Name: Her color palette shares the colors of an actual, non-sentient alexandrite in the presence of natural light, incandescent light, and even a mixture of the two. Also, alexandrites symbolize discipline, self-control, concentration, self-confidence, good luck, and excellence; according to gemstone mythology. Which is something they'd need to maintain a fusion of all three of them.
- Mind Hive: Her personality is a lot less defined than other fusions, since the Crystal Gems maintain their individuality more within her body without splitting up. According to Word of God, it goes a step further and Opal, Sardonyx, and Sugilite can also manifest through Alexandrite. This is less pronounced in later appearances, where having a specific goal makes her a lot more focused.
- Monstrous Humanoid: Aside from Malachite, Alexandrite is the most monstrous Gem fusion seen in the with eight limbs and two faces, the second hidden under her chin. She's also ridiculously unstable, as she came unfused the first time due to Pearl's reluctance to eat food conflicting with Amethyst's hunger.
- Morphic Resonance: Alexandrite has Amethyst's Rapunzel Hair, holes at the knees, and purple colors plus Pearl's nose, and seems to derive part of her hair shape from Pearl, as is her waist band. The purple coloring and Rapunzel Hair could come from Ruby and Sapphire. She also has Garnet's shoulders, and one set of her gloves is distinctly Garnet's single fingered gloves. The other two pairs match Pearl and Amethyst's coloring, even though they don't wear gloves.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Six of them and powerful enough to serve as the Limit Break in Attack The Light.
- Multi-Melee Master: Is capable of using all her components' weapons and any of their fusions' weapons with equal proficiency. This means she's got five different melee weapons to choose from and is capable of using any of them just as well as the others.
- Mundane Utility: The Gems performed the fusion to attend a dinner with Connie's parents.
- No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Her Limit Break in Attack The Light amounts to this: she more or less pounds the enemy into the ground.
- Opera Gloves: She has a different pair of hand-and-forearm covering gloves on each arm. Each is in a different Gem's color scheme, with Garnet's pair being the same type that only cover one finger.
- Playing with Fire: She can breathe a stream of fire from her mouth, an ability that presumably originates from Ruby.
- Pre-Mortem One-Liner: To Malachite: "You two should spend some time apart." Overlaps with pun.
- Roar Before Beating: Her Limit Break in Attack The Light consists of her roaring before pounding the enemy into the ground.
- Talking to Themself: When the Crystal Gems start to argue.
- Too Many Mouths: She has a second, larger mouth that opens from her chin as if her face were a mask. The first time it's played for horror, the second time, it breathes fire and grins at her own jokes.
- Voices Are Mental: She switches between Pearl's, Garnet's, and Amethyst's voices when they argue inside her. Also, Alexandrite's voice speaks at the same time for each of them.
- Voice of the Legion: When her components start arguing, she speaks with both her own voice and that of the gem currently speaking. When she roars at Malachite, there is a much deeper roar in the background.
- Walking Armory: According to the Guide to the Crystal Gems, her Weapon of Choice? All of them. She's capable of using all her components' weapons and any combination of them. She showcases this when she actually fights against Malachite and finishes her off with all three fusions' weapons in quick succession.
- The Worf Effect: Despite being one of the strongest Fusions available to the Crystal Gems, her track record is not great. She gives Malachite a pretty even fight for a while but eventually needs to be saved by the Watermelon Stevens, she gets paralyzed by Aquamarine without much effort, Blue Diamond's Emotion Bomb instantly breaks her up, and Corrupted Steven quickly defuses her by slamming her against a hillside.
An unprecedented fusion between Steven and Connie, which happened through an accidental use of Steven's powers, after many unsuccessful intentional attempts to fuse.
- Allegorical Character: When Garnet tells Stevonnie they are an experience, a significant part of that experience seems very similar to hitting puberty.Rebecca Sugar: [Stevonnie] serves as a metaphor for all the terrifying firsts in a first relationship, and what it feels like to hit puberty and suddenly find yourself with the body of an adult, how quickly that happens, how it feels to have a new power over people, or to suddenly find yourself objectified, all for seemingly no reason since youre still just you...
- All Your Powers Combined: Stevonnie would have been entirely useless on Connie's side when the fusion first appeared, but then Connie was trained in swordsmanship using Rose's sword, which now complements the fusion and basically makes them a real replacement to Rose Quartz. They also have floaty powers and Dream Walker abilities from Steven. Interestingly, they also have a few unique variations on Steven's established abilities, such as kicking the air to move around while floating or seeing past events through their dreams. Stevonnie also has the ability to summon two shields simultaneously, something they were seen to do long before Steven did.
- Ambiguous Gender: Stevonnie is a fusion between a boy and a girl, with mostly feminine features but grows facial hair relatively quickly. Stevonnie's profile in one of the Dove Self-Esteem Project x Steven Universe shorts directly list them as "intersex".
- Ambiguous Gender Identity: Though never directly stated, Stevonnie is implied to be non-binary. Stevonnie is almost always referred to as "they/them" which could technically refer to being a fusion, but all the fusions without Steven are referred to with female pronouns. They never have any problem wearing whatever Steven and Connie had on when they fused, and in the comic wore both male and female clothing even both at once when dressed for a dance. When asked Stevonnie's gender, Ian Jones-Quartey said they're "an experience". More recent interviews have directly referred to Stevonnie as non-binary, as does their profile in an online short about social media.
- Badass Driver: Stevonnie manages to keep pace and nearly beat Kevin, a much more experienced driver who next to no one wanted to challenge, in a race on their first time driving.
- Bare Your Midriff: Stevonnie's body being much larger and older than the children that make them up results in their loose fitting dress, shirt, and jeans turning into a very tight-fitting tank top, undershirt, and shorts.
- Beware the Nice Ones: They're nice as one would expect Steven and Connie to fuse into, but they're very capable of combat if ticked off enough. Their first fight shows them managing to force Jasper into retreat.
- BFS: Thanks to Connie's sword skills, they are able to use Rose's Sword efficiently in combat.
- Bishie Sparkle: Stevonnie sparkles on occasion, such as when wringing their hair out or while dancing.
- Clueless Chick Magnet:
- Being made out of two children, Stevonnie is never aware why people seem to be so interested in them.
- In the comic series, Kiki develops a crush on them after Stevonnie bumps into her while she's jogging and tags along for shopping for a school dance/prom. It's not until after being asked, and after actually going to the dance with her, that they start to realize that her feelings are more than platonic. Luckily she takes it well.
- Cool Sword: They use Rose's Sword.
- Cute Bruiser: They're considered beautiful in-universe, has a very cheerful personality due to them being two kids fused, and their first appearance play up this part about them. However, when they actually fight, their attacks use a lot of power and their Weapon of Choice is a BFS and a shield. Their sheer physical strength is enough to battle Jasper on even footing, something only Garnet has been able to do previously.
- Does Not Wear Shoes: They usually appear barefoot, since Steven and Connie's footwear no longer fits their combined form.
- Dreaming of Times Gone By: Stevonnie's variation on Steven's Dream Walker abilities. Stevonnie's dreams allow them to see past events connected to their current location, such as experiencing a memory of Pink Diamond visiting Yellow Diamond while on the Jungle Moon Base.
- Everybody Wants the Hermaphrodite:
- Regardless of primary sexual characteristics, Stevonnie is a literal combination of male and female. Lars and Sadie are visibly flustered when they walk into the Big Donut.
- In the 2017 comics issue #2, Kiki gets a crush on them, even asking them to the prom. They don't realize that she likes them as more than a friend until they're at the dance and she's hinting at wanting to go on more dates.
- Genius Bruiser: Stevonnie is composed of two Child Prodigies and more than capable in a fight. This also shows during their first fight, as they show strategy in how they fight, such as letting Jasper's charge finish before actually pushing back to get maximum effect or using one attack as an intentional diversion for a full power strike follow up.
- Head-Turning Beauty: Stevonnie elicits this reaction from both Lars and Sadie during a night on the town and later gets invited to a rave by Sour Cream, who is flustered around them. Then there's the fact that Kevin attempts to flirt with Stevonnie at said rave.
- Heroic Ambidexterity: They're able to use their shield and Rose's sword in either hand.
- Hermaphrodite: Stevonnie is a fusion between the half-human Steven and the full human girl Connie. They are non-binary and use they/them pronouns, and their fused body is canonically intersex, as their profile shows in a Dove Self-Esteem project short.
- Instant Expert:
- They are able to pick up driving to an exceptional degree in their first time ever driving. One crew member (semi-jokingly) states that this is due to "video games".
- They manage to fly Lars' Star Skipper because the controls are like a car's.
- Let's Get Dangerous!: They become enraged by Jasper poofing Amethyst and as opposed to their previous lighthearted appearances where they were more focused on having fun, they get serious and fight, ultimately driving her off and poofing her Corrupted Gem monster.
- Lightning Bruiser: Stevonnie has enough Super Strength to slam Jasper straight through a corrupted Gem with enough force to poof it in one slash, but is very fast and acrobatically nimble.
- Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Because Steven is half of them, they're able to summon and use his shield.
- Made of Good: Stevonnie is described in "Guide to the Crystal Gems" as made of love. Garnet describes them as being perfect due to Steven and Connie being so in sync with each other, they can fuse easily.
- Magic Pants: If and how their fusion affects their clothing is somewhat inconsistent:
- Initially, Stevonnie wears the clothing Steven and Connie had on when they fused, but as different article because of the different size compared to them (i.e. Steven's full pants become shorts). They still seem to fit unusually well, either because of slight artistic license or the small amount of clothes shapeshifting Steven was capable of. Later on, Stevonnie wears all of the clothes of one component (Connie's in "Mindful Education", Steven's every other time), while some or all of the other's will disappear until unfusing (Connie's jacket is her only article that shows up on Stevonnie in "Beach City Drift" and "Lars of the Stars").
- Stevonnie is almost always barefoot, as Steven and Connie's shoes can't fit their combined form. While this made sense the first two times (both were barefoot the first time and had their shoes slip off during fusion the second), afterward Steven or Connie's footwear will disappear completely during fusion, then reappear on its original wearer once they split apart. The one time Stevonnie has any footwear, they keep a(n apparently very flexible) type of slipper Steven was wearing, but Connie's boots still disappeared.
- Mind Hive: More than most fusions, Steven and Connie talk to each other even when fused.
- Morphic Resonance: Stevonnie has Steven's head shape, skin tone, and curly hairstyle plus Connie's darker hair color, hair length, and slim figure. The nose is a combination of both, having Connie's tall bridge and flat bottom, but Steven's nostrils and wide angle at the front. The eyes and eyebrows come from both Steven and Connie.
- Muscles Are Meaningless: They've got a fairly average build, but have sufficient strength to drive Jasper straight through the Corrupted Gem she was using as a mount.
- Not Quite Flight: They have Steven's floating powers. Unlike him, Stevonnie "runs" on the air while using them, though it's unclear if they actually need to.
- Older Alter Ego: Instead of just being larger than their components like most fusions, Stevonnie is essentially a teenage mix of Steven and Connie, to the point of even growing facial hair Steven doesn't. This is lampshaded in the 2017 comic by Stevonnie themself, who wonders aloud how old they are after failing to use the form to get into a PG-13 movie, and wondering how long it'll take for them to get a driver's license. Notably, Steven and Connie growing after the Time Skip hasn't made Stevonnie notably different.
- Online Alias: In the Dove Self-Esteem Project x Steven Universe short "Social Media", they have an Instagram account and their username is "StevonnieAccount". Although they admit they only created the account for the filming of the short, the end implies they might keep it.
- Portmanteau: Amethyst doesn't know what to call them, so she combines the "Stev" from Steven and the "onnie" from Connie to make "Stevonnie", and they go with that.
- Power Incontinence:
- At first, Steven and Connie would fuse accidentally simply by having too much fun with each other. Once fused, their stability is probably second to Garnet's, and they easily master the strength and agility of their new form. In "Beach City Drift", the two manage to fuse intentionally for the first time.
- Stevonnie splitting up is unlike most other fusions, who simply desync with each other's emotions. Stevonnie tends to split when they feel strong negative emotions, like fear and anger. This is represented by Stevonnie having strange hallucinations of the world warping around them before splitting.
- By "Jungle Moon", they demonstrate the ability to remain stable while fused for multiple days (even while they sleep), and even after multiple trials and challenges, show no sign of unfusing from the stress.
- The Power of Love: What seems to drive the fusion, just like Garnet is fueled by Ruby and Sapphire's love for each other.
- Pronoun Trouble:
- The fans seem to have settled on referring to Stevonnie as "they"/"them". Kevin did call Stevonnie "girl", but that was only his perception and even he eventually switches to "they" by "Kevin Party". On Ronaldo's Character Blog, he refers to Stevonnie with they/them pronouns in the context of before he found out they were Steven and Connie. A writer also confirmed "they/them" pronouns, and their profile in a Dove Self-Esteem Project x Steven Universe short uses "they/them", as do Pearl and Garnet in "Mindful Education"."It's a shame because I was totally gonna go ask them to dance... you know, until I learned it was Steven and his friend."
- While staying fused for an extended period in "Jungle Moon", they start fluctuating between "We" and "I".
- The fans seem to have settled on referring to Stevonnie as "they"/"them". Kevin did call Stevonnie "girl", but that was only his perception and even he eventually switches to "they" by "Kevin Party". On Ronaldo's Character Blog, he refers to Stevonnie with they/them pronouns in the context of before he found out they were Steven and Connie. A writer also confirmed "they/them" pronouns, and their profile in a Dove Self-Esteem Project x Steven Universe short uses "they/them", as do Pearl and Garnet in "Mindful Education".
- Psychometry: Stevonnie can see past events tied to certain locations through their dreams. Although Steven later discovers he can do the same on his own. Also, it's probably also limited to Steven and Connie's own memories and Past-Life Memories.
- Rapunzel Hair: Since Connie's hair is scaled up for their combined form, this is the result. Even after Connie's Important Haircut, while their hair is shorter, they still have a lot of it.
- Romantic Fusion: The fusion of Steven and Connie, is first formed, by accident, when they shard a romantic dance and stated by Word of God to metaphorically represent "terrifying firsts" in a relationship. The two rather enjoy being fused, except for the fact that it means they've literally become one and the same person, without another person to depend on, and thus "Alone Together" (the title of Stevonnie's debut episode).
- Running on the Spot: Thanks to being half a normal human, Stevonnie flails their legs in the air to use Steven's floating power.
- Semi-Divine: Is 1/4 Diamond, a caste of Gem worshipped as gods in all but name by the rest of gemkind.
- She's All Grown Up: Some subtext in their apparent attractiveness. Stevonnie is meant to illustrate someone gaining a sudden amount of attention after going through puberty, which is why their debut episode is riddled with them obliviously attracting affection from everyone to their consternation.
- She's Got Legs: It's made particularly evident by their short shorts.
- Shout-Out: Their method of floating by "running" in the air to lift themselves up is just like Yoshi's Flutter Jump ability in the Super Mario Bros. series.
- Sixth Ranger: They're the first new fusion to become available to the Crystal Gems, as while Sardonyx was introduced after them, she'd already been formed before that.
- Statuesque Stunner: Stevonnie is almost as tall as Garnet.
- Super Mode: In practice, they act as this for Steven and Connie in actual combat. Most fusions have a combination of All Your Powers Combined and their components powers combined into new ones. As Connie doesn't have any superhuman powers of her own, Stevonnie's power set is simply an enhanced version of Steven's shield skills and Gem powers with Connie's sword skills.
- Super Strength:
- Their first fight reveals they're strong enough to block a full charge from Jasper and slam her hard enough to go through the Corrupted Gem she was riding, poofing it in the process.
- "Know Your Fusion" shows them being between Pearl and Garnet on the strength scale somewhat weak by fusion standards, but tremendously strong for human ones.
- Talking to Themself: Sometimes talks like Steven and Connie are conversing inside them.
- Throwing Your Shield Always Works: Stevonnie, much like Steven, can throw their shield as a ranged attack. The first time they use it to distract Jasper from a powerful overhead slash.
- Uneven Hybrid: 3/4 human, 1/4 Gem. It's because Steven is half-human that he was able to fuse with Connie, and apart from Garnet, Stevonnie is the most stable and humanlike Gem fusion due to the same circumstances fueling them both.
- Unlimited Wardrobe: Unlike fusions with Gems, Stevonnie doesn't form a new outfit of their own and simply wears Steven and Connie's clothes layered over each other. So, they wear something different in almost all of their appearances since Connie has quite a big wardrobe (and sometimes Steven, too).
- Weak, but Skilled: They're between Pearl and Garnet on the strength scale, but like their teacher, they know how to use that strength to their advantage. As such, their battle with Jasper is a more practical application of Unstoppable Force Meets Immovable Object than usual: Stevonnie is simply better at tactically committing to offense or defense than Jasper is.
- The Worf Effect: That Yellow was able to grab them quickly shows that Stevonnie may be amazing and strong, but Yellow is more powerful.
- Wrong Context Magic: A full human (Connie) and Half-Human Hybrid Gem (Steven) fusing was a rather unprecedented and unexpected turn, which surprises the Gems.
- Younger Than They Look: Stevonnie looks like they're in their late teens/early twenties, but has the mind of two kids. This is probably part of the reason why they misinterpreted people's reactions to them at the dance. Furthermore, a guy who was flirting with them freaks out when he realizes the truth.
The fusion of Steven and Amethyst, first made by a hug. Acts like a slightly more serene, cheerful version of Amethyst.
- Acrofatic: As heavyset as you would expect from a Steven/Amethyst fusion, but Jasper can't even land a hit on them, and that's before taking into account the mobility their floating powers and yo-yo provide.
- All Your Powers Combined: Has Steven's Not Quite Flight, shield, and presumably bubble powers with Amethyst's whip, strength, and spin. They can fuse the shield and whip into a giant yo-yo to do battle with.
- Ambiguous Gender: Given Steven is a boy and Amethyst is a member of a One-Gender Race who seem feminine, like Stevonnie, it's impossible to tell what gender Smoky Quartz is, or if the concept of gender is even applicable to them since they're two individuals in the same body.
- Badass Adorable: Jovial and fun-loving, making puns as they kick Jasper's butt, who can't even touch them in battle, even after fusing with a Gem monster for a power boost.
- Bare Your Midriff: Steven's shirt is mostly unchanged save for the fact that exposes a large swatch of stomach, including the Rose Quartz gem.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Big Fun is probably the best way to describe them and even their theme is upbeat and cheerful. It doesn't mean they can't kick some serious tail, though. Namely Jasper's.
- Big Fun: As a Fusion of Steven and Amethyst, this was inevitable.
- Bizarre Alien Limbs: Their left arm splits at the elbow into two forearms.
- Blow You Away: Smoky Quartz is capable of spinning their Killer Yo-Yo with enough force to create a powerful wind. Using three lets them create a tornado. The trope name itself was invoked when their fan ability was used for the first time.
- Boisterous Bruiser: They have a tendency of constantly joking during battle.
- Confusion Fu: Their fighting style in a nutshell. They use their Killer Yo-Yo and agility to attack in strange ways and from odd angles, making them very unpredictable.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Against Jasper, whose butt they happily kick.
- Everything Makes a Mushroom: In a possible nod to the mild radioactivity of real-life Smoky Quartz, their fusion makes a purple mushroom cloud.
- To Sugilite, which is made up of the worst parts of Amethyst's and Garnet's personalities their pride and recklessness. Smoky Quartz is brought out by the natural friendship Steven has with Amethyst.
- Their laid-back attitude also contrasts with Sardonyx's over-the-top personality.
- Fun Personified: Combines Steven and Amethyst's natures to make a jovial, fun loving fusion.
- Fusion Dance: Smoky is somewhat unique in that Steven and Amethyst have not needed to do a dance to create them: The first time they were created with a hug, and the second time with just a handshake.
- Heart Is an Awesome Power: Their Killer Yo-Yo gets underestimated by Sardonyx, but turns out to be one of the most versatile weapons the Crystal Gems have access to. In addition to being a great close range melee weapon, as shown with the Jasper fight, it can have incredible range and accuracy. It's also a handy grappling hook and can be used for a Blow You Away attack.
- Heroic Self-Deprecation: Despite being just as awesome as any other fusion, Smoky Quartz spends part of "Know Your Fusion" taking jabs at themself because Sardonyx unknowingly agitated the insecurities Steven and Amethyst brought to the fusion trying to find what makes them special besides their Killer YoYos. Luckily, they proved to Garnet and Pearl just how awesome they can be.
- Hurricane of Puns: Their battle dialogue against Jasper is largely made up of puns.Smoky Quartz: [while spinning their yo-yos to make a strong wind] Hold on, I've got a move that'll really blow you away! It's cool if you don't like it... [pulls out two more yo-yos] I've already got three huge fans!
- I Just Want to Be Special: They have a serious moment of this when trying to show off their new skills, Sardonyx keeps trying to see if they measure up to the other established fusions, namely Opal's Improbable Aiming Skills, Sugilite's Super Strength, and Alexandrite's Breath Weapon. The fact Sardonyx keeps putting down Smoky's Yo-Yo, what really makes them special, really makes them just feel like their fusion wasn't as incredible as they originally thought (fortunately, they bounce back by the end of the episode).
- Incoming Ham: Their fusion is marked by a huge purple explosion and their first act upon creation is to throw their arms into the air and scream "WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY!" at the top of their lungs.
- Improbable Weapon User: Most people wouldn't expect a Killer Yo-Yo to be that dangerous, but they easily beat Jasper with it.
- Killer Yo-Yo: Their fusion weapon combines Amethyst's whip and Steven's shield into a large yo-yo, which they use to easily beat Jasper.
- Leitmotif: "Smoky Quartz" incorporates Amethyst's drums along with what sounds like the "Steven's Shield" track to form a bouncy, energetic beat.
- Lightning Bruiser: You might not expect it given their body type, but they're incredibly fast to the point Jasper can't land a hit on them, and they're strong enough to overpower her.
- Magic Pants: They incorporate both of their components' clothing and, thanks to Amethyst, they fit better on their heavyset body.
- Meaningful Name: In gemstone mythos, smoky quartz turns negativity into positivity, fosters cooperation and helps wishes and personal goals to become true; Smoky Quartz is made when Amethyst accepts Steven's help by turning all her negative traits as a "runt" into actual positives, and thanks to them, Amethyst's goal of defeating Jasper is made true.
- Morphic Resonance: Smoky Quartz has Amethyst's Peek-a-Bangs, plump lips, boots and tank top and Steven's head shape, hair color, shirt, and pants. Their heavyset nature comes from both, and Steven's shield becomes a Killer Yo-Yo, with Amethyst's whip being the string.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: An unusual version in that their left arm splits into two (similar to Sugilite's, except the split is at the elbow instead of midway along the upper arm). It doesn't seem to hinder them, and in fact just gives them another arm to attack or do handstands.
- Not Quite Flight: They inherited Steven's ability to regulate the speed of their descent.
- Peek-a-Bangs: Just like Amethyst.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: In comparison to most fusions. Only Stevonnie and Garnet are smaller than them (made especially clear when they spend a whole episode hanging out with Sardonyx), and yet they managed to kick the butt of a Gem that has been hounding the good guys for months.
- The Power of Love: Different variety than normal, as it's not romantic love, but rather familial. Smoky Quartz is formed as a result of Steven and Amethyst's sibling-like relationship and support of one another, and thus as per the rules of fusion, is the Anthropomorphic Personification of this.
- Pungeon Master: Like one of their components, Smoky Quartz peppers their dialogue with puns.
- Really Was Born Yesterday: In "Know Your Fusion", they admit don't know that much about themself yet as, between their debut episode and this one, they've literally existed for about ten minutes total.
- Sad Clown: Underneath all the jokes, they also carry both the heavy insecurities that Steven and Amethyst have to offer.
- Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: After Smoky Quartz blows Jasper into the air with their Blow You Away attack, they mimic the sound of Jasper falling and hitting the ground; "Wheeeoooooo-BHOOM!"
- Semi-Divine: They're not a Rose Quartz and an Amethyst fusion, they're a Diamond and Amethyst fusion. As Diamonds are treated by the Gems as gods in all but name, Smoky is this trope at least from the Gems point of view.
- Sibling Team: According to the art book, Smoky is basically the embodiment of this, as they represent a sibling relationship rather than a simply platonic or romantic one. Taken further with the reveal that Rose was Pink Diamond, meaning she was actually Amethyst's creator and thus Steven and her are actually brother and sister in a sense.
- Sixth Ranger: The second new fusion to be introduced to the group, as even if Amethyst and Rose fused before this, the current Smoky Quartz isn't her.
- Spectacular Spinning: In their debut, Smoky spins like a top while their yo-yo rolls through the air. This is a subtle contrast to Steven's shield flying vertically like a frisbee and Amethyst's Rolling Attack.
- Swiss Army Weapon: Their yo-yo has greater utility than the other Gems' weapons, much like Amethyst's whip. It can be used to grapple, create tornadoes, and can change directions to hit opponents in their blind spots.
- Time Stands Still: Discovers this power in "Guidance" when running to stop an out-of-control roller coaster. It is implied to be the Super Speed variant rather than a literal time stop.
- Uneven Hybrid: Stevonnie's opposite, being 1/4 human and 3/4 Gem.
- Walking Spoiler: The very fact that they can exist spoils that Steven can fuse with full gems.
- When All You Have Is a Hammer...: Averted. Smoky Quartz's strength lies in the sheer versatility of their weapon.
- Wingding Eyes: Has a star in their eye when they say their name.
- You Are Not Alone: Smoky Quartz was born (or perhaps reborn) thanks to Amethyst accepting Steven's help against Jasper.
- Youthful Freckles: They have these to show that they're made from the two younger members of the Crystal Gems.
The fusion of Garnet and Steven.
- Affectionate Parody: Most of her lines parody over-the-top, often out-of-place PSAs on 80s and 90s Saturday morning cartoons and after-school specials. This reference is driven home by a hairstyle that bears considerable resemblance to that of Sonic the Hedgehog.
- Ambiguous Gender: Par for the course of Steven's various fusions, due to being a mix of the male Steven and female-presenting Garnet. Word of God has stated that both they/them and she/her pronouns are equally acceptable for Sunstone.
- And Knowing Is Half the Battle: Spouts these constantly.
- Bare Your Midriff: Their outfit exposes their midriff.
- Cool Shades: They wear a pair of these, obviously inherited from Garnet.
- Don't Try This at Home: Makes a comment like this at one point.
- The Face of the Sun: Their head resembles the typical, cartoony, sunglass-wearing sun.
- Fourth-Wall Observer: Sunstone often turns to face the screen and gives advice, like telling an adult when dealing with a bully or not to try a dangerous stunt at home.
- Fusion Dissonance: In terms of body shape, Sunstone is like Garnet flipped upside down. They're so disproportionately top heavy that they have rolled up sleeves to make room for their arms. A notable contrast to the rest of Garnet's fusions having wide hips and big poofy sleeves.
- Improbable Weapon User: Their Gem weapon? Essentially Garnet's gauntlets with giant suction cups attached.
- Large Ham: Most definitely.
- Leitmotif: 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.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Has four arms, with the top set being huge and muscular while the lower set are smaller and thinner.
- Muscles Are Meaningful: They have an incredibly developed upper body and strength even greater than their size would indicate.
- The Power of the Sun: Called Sunstone, and their fusion itself resembles solar flares.
- Semi-Divine: She's 1/6 Diamond, and with the expected strength.
- Sleeves Are for Wimps: Only instead of being ripped off, they're just rolled all the way back.
- Stealth Pun: Sunstone having such large arms with rolled up sleeves evokes the phrase "Sun's out, guns out".
- Super Strength: Even for a fusion they're immensely strong, as she can easily stop and push off the skyscraper-sized Diamond Mecha.
- Team Mom: Being a mix of All-Loving Hero Steven and Garnet, who already was something of a mom, it only makes sense that Sunstone would take it to the max, spouting off morals that wouldn't be out-of-place in an after-school special... even breaking the fourth wall to do it at one point!
- Top-Heavy Guy: Their upper body and first set of arms are disproportionately large.
- Totally Radical: Comes across as this as a living reference to token "cool" characters from 90s cartoons.
- Uneven Hybrid: Five-sixths gem and one-sixth human.
- Vocal Dissonance: Sunstone looks like a Totally Radical 90's mascot and is the third tallest of Steven's fusions, but has a gentle, sweet, and enthusiastic voice.
- Wall Crawl: Uses her suction cups to try and climb the Diamond Ship mech.
- Wreathed in Flames: When being formed, they're blazing. Fully formed they look like they're burning from the head, with the parts that get further away from it being darker colors.
A massive fusion that rescued William Dewey from a giant sea monster and brought his boat to the land which would become Beach City. Is confirmed to be the original Obsidian, and thus the fusion of Rose, Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl depicted by the Crystal Temple.
- Alien Non-Interference Clause: Averted; during the play, she states honestly that she might well end up interfering again.
- BFS: In "Bubble Buddies" and "Ocean Gem", a sword similar to that of Obsidian 2.0 can be seen in the ocean, suggesting the first Obsidian had a similar if not identical weapon.
- The Ghost: The temple is based off her appearance and a dramatization of her shows up in Jamie's play, but she's never seen in person.
- Gentle Giant: In addition to saving his life, she's quite considerate with Willaim Dewey, carrying his boat to shore and warning him to turn back.
- Hidden in Plain Sight: The Crystal Gems' temple is made in the image of her, meaning the original version of Obsidian has been staring fans in the face since the first episode. Her sword is even visible when Connie and Steven are underwater in "Bubble Buddies" and when the surrounding water is gone in "Ocean Gem". According to the art book, it was at one point planned for the Crystal Temple to be called the "Obsidian Temple".
- Impossible Hourglass Figure: Her midsection is dwarfed by her bust and hips in the cutout of her. The temple depicts a much more balanced body.
- In-Series Nickname: Due to her multiple arms, she's referred as "The Queen of Noogies" in the play.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Depicted in the play with four arms. As she's Obsidian, she actually had eight arms.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: Steven, who stuck a lot of jokes into the play. calls her "The Goddess of Noogies" due to not knowing her actual name. It's later revealed she was the original Obsidian.
- Posthumous Character: Is the original Obsidian formed with Rose, and thus died with her.
- Sinister Silhouettes: Thanks to the budget for Jamie's play, she's represented as a cutout casting a shadow.
The fusion of Steven, Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl. The original Obsidian was the inspiration for the Crystal Temple.
- 11th-Hour Superpower: Formed in the season 5 finale to combat the Diamond Mecha under White Diamond's control.
- Absurd Cutting Power: Their sword's Hot Blade is able to cleanly slice the Diamonds' arm ships apart. Fitting, considering obsidian can make some of the sharpest blades known if properly crafted.
- All Your Powers Combined: Is a fusion of all the main Crystal Gems Amethyst, Pearl, Ruby, Sapphire and a former Diamond.
- Always a Bigger Fish: Peridot's Gem Warship tanked everything the Crystal Gems had, and even Alexandrite couldn't overcome Homeworld's tech edge. Obsidian on the other hand is able to shred the Diamonds' arm ships like a hot knife through butter with their sword, probably because a Diamond is part of them.
- Ambiguous Gender: As with all of Steven's fusions, though they're by far the most feminine-looking of all of his fusions. Despite appearing entirely of stone without notable clothing, they lack any attributes identifying gender. Officially, both she/her and they/them are appropriate for them. In the show proper, Peridot refers to Obsidian with a "they" pronoun ("They're huge!"), but it's ambiguous whether she's using the singular "they" or referring to the five Gems forming Obsidian.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: 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 Diamond Mecha's hands, which dwarfs all of the Diamonds themselves. To get a sense of scale, that red and blue spot on her hand is Steven's clothes. Their thumb alone is bigger than Connie.
- BFS: Their Gem Weapon is a sword as big as they are tall. Which, given how big they are, makes it probably bigger than entire buildings. More specifically, their weapon is all four of the core Crystal Gems' weapons fused into a sword hilt. They then proceed to open their second mouth to dip it in lava and form the blade.
- Cool Sword: Their Gem weapon is a gigantic sword so sharp it can cleave straight through the Diamonds' arm ships.
- Creepy Good: They're very much a terrifying Kaiju of a fusion with a secondary mouth full of fangs and lava. They're also very much on the side of the heroes.
- Dark Is Not Evil: They're a dark-colored fusion with lava inside their mouth and a bestial temperament, but they're on the side of good.
- Expy: Obsidian is strongly reminiscent of the Hindu goddess Kali. Both have dark skin, long hair, multiple arms, and a ferocious temperament. Like Obsidian, Kali is created to defeat a powerful enemy in multiple stories.
- Fireball Eyeballs: Fitting with their volcanic theme, all four of Obsidian's eyes are full of blazing molten lava.
- Fusion Dissonance: This Obsidian is the fusion between Steven, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl (technically making her a fusion between five gems), and unlike every other fusion between them, she exhibits none of the characteristics of her components, nor does she bear a resemblance to any other fusion combination between them. In theory, the only defining feature she seems to possess is her hair, its consistency bearing a mild resemblance to Steven's puffy hair, in contrast to the Crystal Gem Temple (implied to have been based on the original Obsidian) which possesses his mother's ringlets.
- Godzilla Threshold: Just forming them is a desperate situation, since it requires the united efforts of five separate Gems working in tandem. Given how aggressive and powerful they are in combat, it's quite clear why the Gems don't form them all the time.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: They're the Infinity +1 Sword of the protagonists, and their weapon, upon combining all of the others, is a giant, flaming greatsword.
- Hot Blade: Their sword glows orange, having been formed from molten lava.
- In a Single Bound: Just like their components, Obsidian can jump enormous heights even relative to their own size. It comes in handy climbing the Diamond Mecha.
- Lava Adds Awesome: Has lava powers and a definite volcanic motif, which is fitting because obsidian is volcanic glass.
- Legacy Character: Is the second Obsidian, the first being the inspiration for the Temple. If the Temple is an accurate depiction of the first, this Obsidian is notably more flat chested and muscular than the original, with hair closer to a mix of Steven's and a younger Greg's than Rose's curls present in the original.
- Leitmotif: "Obsidian", a grandiose and heroic theme made using all the instruments of their components' individual themes.
- Lightning Bruiser: They're powerful enough to shred Diamond war ships, can jump several times their height In a Single Bound, and is as agile as they are strong.
- Made of Good: As fusions are an embodiment of the bond of their components, Obsidian is the living embodiment of the familial bond between the Crystal Gems.
- Magic Pants: Although not visible in most shots in-show, Steven's clothes, greatly stretched out, are over one of their hands.
- Magma Man: There are lines of lava across their body, and they form the blade of their sword out of lava.
- Meaningful Name: Besides their association with lava, which is what forms obsidian in the first place, the sharpness of their sword's blade reflects how real obsidian, when cleaved right, is the sharpest naturally occurring substance in the world. It's considered one of the best materials with which to create surgical blades for this very reason, as when crafted right, it can maintain an edge equal to or finer than any modern metal surgical tool, even those crafted and supplemented with nanotechnology.
- Morphic Resonance: Instead of having curly hair like Rose depicted by the Temple, they have fuller hair that resembles a mix of Steven's and Greg's when he was younger. They're also noticeably more muscular and flat chested than the original, rather than the more lady-like and shapely depiction of the temple.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Has eight arms.
- Mythical Motifs: They greatly resemble a deity from Polynesian or Hindu mythology.
- Non-Humans Lack Attributes: Appears to be completely of stone without clothing, but lacks any attributes of gender.
- One-Shot Character: Only formed on-screen for "Change Your Mind".
- Rapunzel Hair: Their hair is quite voluminous and reaches past their knees.
- Semi-Divine: Deci-Divine in this case. Obsidian is 1/10 Diamond. And it shows, as they are undoubtedly one of the most powerful Gems seen in the series.
- Screaming Warrior: Their first act after forming is to emit a skyward scream. When they reach White Diamond's ship, they scream into one of its eye-openings.
- Too Many Mouths: Much like Alexandrite, they have a second mouth that opens up, except theirs is on the top of their head rather than under their chin and is full of lava.
- Voice of the Legion: Their grunts and screams sound like multiple voices in unison, most likely because it is, being a five-Gem Fusion.
- Volcanic Veins: Has veins of lava running through their body.
- Walking Armory: They contain the weapons of Steven, Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl. Once combined together, they form the hilt of a massive sword, with the blade being made of lava.
Other Gem Fusions
The fusion of Jasper and Lapis Lazuli. Has Lapis' hydrokinesis and Jasper's crash helmet. The most unstable fusion yet seen; Lapis only agreed to the dance after heavy coercion, and ultimately, used the power offered by the fusion to trap the two of them, together, at the bottom of the ocean. Though Jasper struggled to free herself of the fusion, Lapis kept them together through sheer force of will.
- Addictive Magic: While it's been shown in other fusions, this is by far more pronounced in Malachite than anyone else, likely due to the selfish nature of the fusion. Both of her components became addicted in some way to being her: Lapis to the emotional release of having Jasper to take her pain out on and Jasper to the Power High she experienced. While Lapis was able to bounce back from it and recover to the extent of realizing how unhealthy the experience was Jasper wasn't so lucky and became addicted to being Malachite, and later fusion in general when Lapis made it clear she would not fuse with Jasper again. Jasper, despite initially expressing dismissal of fusion, appears unable to let go of the enhanced power it grants even when the preferred partner for it is no longer interested.
- All There in the Script: In her first appearance in the season one finale, her name only shows up in the credits. It isn't until the much later episode "Chille Tid" that her name is actually mentioned in the show.
- All Your Powers Combined: She has both Lapis' water powers and Jasper's helmet and Battle Aura, though she mostly uses the former.
- Anime Hair: It's very big and poofy and star-shaped. She gets it mostly from Jasper.
- Anthropomorphic Personification: In the same way that Garnet is the embodiment of Ruby and Sapphire's love for each other, Malachite can be said to be a living reflection of Lapis and Jasper's hate toward each other. She embodies the instability, malice, and entrapment that characterizes their relationship.
- Axe-Crazy: Mostly from Jasper, whose sanity has not survived being trapped under the ocean in her own body well.
- Battle in the Center of the Mind: "Chille Tid" reveals that Lapis is exerting all her mental power to keep control of Malachite, and keep Jasper from emerging.
- Body Horror: She has six limbs, with all of them being shaped like arms, though two sets of them act like legs. She has two sets of eyes with a distinctly reptilian feel which work independent of one another. The really ugly part is when the fusion begins to degrade, with the face beginning to break apart, only for it to get sucked back together...
- Clipped-Wing Angel: She's very powerful, having Jasper's raw strength and Lapis Lazuli's hydrokinesis, but she's very unstable, with both Lapis and Jasper having their own agendas. She lost in her first appearance because Lapis used her power to take control of the fusion and drag them both to the bottom of the ocean. Once the two stop fighting each other and work towards a common goal, however...
- Cool Helmet: She can summon Jasper's helmet.
- Cuteness Proximity: She gets distracted from killing Alexandrite by the Watermelon Stevens trying to attack her, and she reacts to them with glee until they actually hurt her.
- Destructive Romance: 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.
- Does This Remind You of Anything?:
- Her entire existence comes off as a rather... uncomfortable metaphor for a toxic/abusive relationship Garnet even lampshades this after her debut, commenting that Lapis and Jasper are "really bad for each other". It's taken even further in "Alone at Sea", wherein Jasper's little speech begging Lapis to fuse with her again makes her sound like an abusive individual desperately trying to convince their victim to come back to them.Jasper: I've changed! You've changed me!
- "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.
- Her entire existence comes off as a rather... uncomfortable metaphor for a toxic/abusive relationship Garnet even lampshades this after her debut, commenting that Lapis and Jasper are "really bad for each other". It's taken even further in "Alone at Sea", wherein Jasper's little speech begging Lapis to fuse with her again makes her sound like an abusive individual desperately trying to convince their victim to come back to them.
- Dragged Off to Hell: Her fate in "Jail Break" is very reminiscent of this, with her being chained and pulled into a deep place while she tries desperately to escape.
- Emerald Power: The only Gem besides Peridot in the green color range, and they're a fusion with Jasper's terrible brute strength and Lapis' near-total control of water.
- Evil Laugh: By Jasper.
- Evil Is Bigger: Is by far the largest two-Gem fusion seen in the series, being as large as the four Gem fusion Alexandrite. This is likely due to one of her components being one of the largest singular gems.
- Extra Eyes: Has two sets of eyes, with the upper set doubling as eyebrows. As is common for Gem fusions, she has as many eyes as the component Gems have added together. The top set seems to belong to Jasper, as that set moves along with Jasper's Gem as she tries to break free.
- Fangs Are Evil: She has elongated canines.
- Flight: Has Lapis' water wings. Jasper is especially enamored of this after being convinced of the usefulness of fusion.
- Foil: Is more or less the opposite of Garnet's truly loving, genuine fusion, instead being born purely out of desperation and savagery, and ultimately used with apathy towards the other party on one side and an intention to defeat the other on the other side. Garnet even points out how bad the two sides are for each other. This even carries over to their designs, as while Garnet is by far the most humanoid fusion of them all, to the point that it's not immediately apparent she is a fusion, Malachite is barely humanoid at all. She doesn't even have her own voice actor, with her two components' voice actors talking over each other instead, to emphasize how unstable she is. And while like Garnet, her components wanted to remain being her, it was for completely selfish reasons rather than genuinely loving each other.
- Giant Animal Worship: While not exactly an animal, the Watermelon Stevens seem to treat her this way, presenting sacrifices to her King Kong style.
- Giant Flyer: Her massive size combined with Lapis' water wings results in this when she pulls herself together to fight Alexandrite.
- Green and Mean: Has a green palette, Jasper's Blood Knight tendencies, and Lapis' vindictiveness.
- Hellish Pupils: Like Jasper, her pupils are slightly elongated. And she's got four of them.
- Home Field Advantage: The main reason she was able to nearly kill Alexandrite: they were fighting on an island in the middle of the ocean where her water powers are at their strongest.
- Human Sacrifice: Well, not human, but Watermelon Stevens that are selected to go appease Malachite are eaten by her due to her growing hatred of him.
- An Ice Person: As a combination of Lapis' hydrokinesis and Jasper's brute strength, she can form ice and weaponize it.
- In-Universe Catharsis: The reason Lapis missed being her (and hated herself for it) is while she was Malachite, she was able to take out her years of pain and anger on Jasper.
- Ironic Name: Malachite is associated with successful practical relationships, while Malachite's parts end up at each other's throats.
- Leitmotif: "Malachite", a tense and discordant piece with a prominent Drone of Dread, combining Lapis' piano with an emphasis on the harsh, intense part of "I am Lapis Lazuli", and Jasper's bass.
- Lightning Bruiser: Strong enough to match Alexandrite physically and throw her around like a ragdoll, capable of performing Jasper's high-speed Rolling Attack from mid-air thanks to Lapis' water wings no less, and durable enough to shrug off everything Alexandrite can throw at her save the finishing blow of a giant arrow through the chest. And all of this is before adding in Lapis' hydrokinesis to the mix.
- Lord of the Ocean: With their animosity towards one another, Malachite resembles an ocean god known to create storms and creates hostility among mortals, lampshaded in "Super Watermelon Island" when the tribe of Watermelon Stevens living on Mask Island selects members of their tribe as sacrifices to appease her.
- Loving a Shadow: As Fusions are metaphors for a relationship, Malachite might be a 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.
- Made of Evil: In the same sense that Garnet is "made of love", Malachite is essentially made of hate.
- Making a Splash: She has Lapis' water powers.
- Meaningful Name: Malachite is used to protect children, and Lapis formed Malachite to protect Steven. And putting raw malachite in water makes it produce toxic fumes, just to drive home just how bad the fusion is. Her name also starts with "mal", meaning "bad" in many Romance languages.
- Mental World: When Steven manages to contact Lapis in "Chille Tid", the conversation takes place in a space with green water, with whichever Gem is on the surface apparently having the mental upper hand.
- Mind Hive: Both Jasper and Lapis' personalities are clearly in there, and they do not mix well.
- Monstrous Humanoid: With an insect-like build and components who oppose each other immensely, it's a miracle that something as unstable as Malachite can even exist.
- Morphic Resonance: From Lapis, Malachite has a similar hair shape, a slimmer face, upper arms and torso, a bared midriff and similarly fluid movements. From Jasper, she gets the pale wild hair, skin stripes, fuller lips, Slasher Smile, pupils, thick remaining arms and lower torso, general outfit design and colossal size.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Malachite is a weird variation on this. She has six arms and no legs, instead using the lower two sets as legs.
- Oh, Crap!: Once Lapis takes over and drags them both to the bottom of the ocean.
- Omnicidal Maniac: Garnet's description of her implies that should she snap, she'll be consumed by her own rage and destroy. Given the collective anger of her components is directed at everyone (except maybe Steven), that's an apt description.
- One-Winged Angel: Jasper intended for Malachite to be a massive powerup, and she's strong enough to give a four-Gem fusion like Alexandrite a run for her money, but only when Lapis and Jasper can work together.
- Out of Focus: After her appearance at the end of "Jail Break", there is a subplot of the Crystal Gems trying to find her during Season 2 before something bad happens. However, after "Chille Tid", this subplot is dropped and they focus on capturing Peridot and later working with her to stop the Cluster. She is back in focus in the season 3 opener where she is finally separated back into Lapis and Jasper after she is defeated by Alexandrite.
- Person of Mass Destruction: Has Lapis' immense control over the ocean, and her other half is the "the Ultimate Quartz".
- "Pop!" Goes the Human: How she defuses once Alexandrite defeats her.
- Power High: Due to being powerful enough to rival Alexandrite, she causes a massive one of these in Jasper, to the point the Gem becomes addicted to it.
- The Power of Hate: A fusion derived from almost nothing but negative emotions, yet still one of the strongest seen in action thus far. Granted, her component gems are very powerful in their own rights.
- Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: To Alexandrite when told she's outnumbered: "I may be outnumbered, but you're out of your depth." Overlaps with pun since they're fighting in the ocean.
- Prophetic Names: Malachite will give off a toxic gas if submerged in water.
- Put on a Bus: Malachite is forcible defused by Alexandrite in "Super Watermelon Island", after which Lapis decidedly does not want to fuse with Jasper. Malachite is unlikely to ever be formed again, which is about as close as a fusion with extant components gets to being Killed Off for Real.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Garnet states this will be the most likely outcome if Lapis loses all control over Malachite, being consumed by her own hatred and anger over the reason for her fusion and seeking to destroy all involved in it. Which is exactly what happens.
- Sealed Evil in a Duel: Lapis fuses with Jasper so she can drag her underneath the ocean and keep her there with her. In fact, Lapis has the mental strength to prevent Jasper from destabilizing the fusion. Jasper ultimately wins, but Malachite is broken apart by Alexandrite soon after.
- Slasher Smile: When she first forms. She also has one for most of her fight with Alexandrite, possibly because Jasper has largely taken control of the fusion.
- Superpower Lottery: The strength, speed, and fighting skills of Jasper combined with the flight and Imagination-Based Superpower of Lapis, stapled onto a colossal body. She was soundly beating Alexandrite for a good chunk of their fight until Alexandrite barely managed to turn it around, which would likely make her one of the most powerful characters in the series, bar the Cluster and maybe the stronger Diamonds.
- Unskilled, but Strong: Malachite is a highly unstable fusion who doesn't have a unique weapon, but her raw strength combined with Lapis' mastery over water is almost able to overwhelm Alexandrite in a fight.
- Unstoppable Rage: According to Garnet, should she snap completely, she'll be consumed by her rage and go on a rampage fueled by this. And it shows, as her collective rage at the Gems causes Lapis to lose complete control over the fusion when she sees the Gems.
- Voice of the Legion: Malachite does not have a unique voice, just the voices of her components talking together or one at a time. This shows just how out of synch the two were, despite being fused together. Even when she refers to herself as "Malachite" for the first time, proof that she's starting to develop her own sentience, it's still with her components' voices, not a unique one. She even constantly uses both singular and plural pronouns when referring to herself.
- Walking Spoiler: Not only is she the Fusion Dance form of two walking spoilers, but her appearance in the show spoils a big chunk of the season one finale.
- When She Smiles: She has an odd, genuinely happy, amused giggle and smile (not the Slasher Smile) when the Watermelon Stevens attack her, and it actually makes her look kind of cute. She stops when they go for her eyes, however. Most likely this is a part of Lapis' personality she's retained, since Lapis is shown to be playful with a sense of humor when not in despair or angry, although the laughter belongs to Jasper.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: It's been stated that fusions have some sentience... that being said, Malachite is probably in severe pain because her two components are constantly at each other's throats, trying to hurt the other.
- Worst. Whatever. Ever!: Played for Drama. "Guide to the Crystal Gems" calls her "the worst relationship imaginable" due to being formed from deceit and held together by revenge.
The fusion of the three Ruby Guards assigned to Sapphire 5,750 years ago.
- Clipped-Wing Angel: Beaten within seconds of being formed by Rose Quartz. All it did was make her easier to hit.
- Mental Fusion: As the Crystal Gem Ruby explains, fusing like this to her feels like just being a bigger version of herself. Presumably, this is the same experience the other two Rubies have. Since they aren't particularly different to one another, their fused mind is no different to a single Ruby's.
- One-Shot Character: Only appears in "The Answer".
- The Worf Effect: She's broken apart by Rose Quartz shortly after fusing, indicating that the power/skill increase of same-Gem fusions compared to their component parts isn't as significant as that of cross-Gem fusions. Or in retrospect, that Diamonds are extremely powerful compared to other Gems.
The fusion of the five Rubies — Doc, Army, Eyeball, Navy, and Leggy — sent to Earth in search of Jasper.
- All There in the Script: Called "Giant Ruby" in the credits of "Back to the Moon".
- Bare Your Midriff: Has a triangular opening on her top at the midsection to show off Navy's gem.
- Clipped-Wing Angel: Despite being intimidating, and even more so than the Ruby/Ruby/Ruby fusion, she is easily beaten by Sardonyx, a fusion of only three Gems. This is mostly because same-Gem fusions don't enhance power as much as multi-Gem fusions like Sardonyx.
- Cool Shades: A trait she got from Doc.
- Demon Head: Parodied; this is the fusion's intended use: become giant in order to scare the Crystal Gems into compliance.
- Paper Tiger: Despite being huge, intimidating and eager to fight, she's actually not much of a threat to the Crystal Gems, as Sardonyx defuses her in a single blow mere seconds into their battle.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Acted viciously when demanding Jasper's whereabouts, but was suddenly quite jovial after being given an answer.
- Super Gullible: Just like all five of her components.
In a desperate move to defeat Smoky Quartz, Jasper fuses with the corrupted Snow Monster/Ocean Jasper. This proves to be a very bad move, resulting in Jasper's own Corruption.
- Clipped-Wing Angel: Fusing with Ocean Jasper not only fails to give Jasper any meaningful power boost, it actually seems to make her weaker; as Ocean is another Jasper Gem like her, the power boost isn't that significant to begin with. On top of that, Jasper begins to corrupt after unfusing.
- Does This Remind You of Anything?:
- Jasper forces herself into a fusion with another Gem unable to consent only to contract a horrifying condition that eats away at her body and mind before having to be put out of her misery.
- There's the implications behind Jasper forcing herself upon a feral, animalistic gem who doesn't seem to be fully aware of or in control of what's going on.
- Gone Horribly Wrong: The fusion ends up spreading The Corruption to Jasper, resulting in her turning into a Corrupted Gem herself.
- Horned Humanoid: Only her torso was humanoid, being a centaur-like fusion, and she had five horns, two like ram horns on the sides of her head and three shooting up from her forehead.
- Morphic Resonance: The fusion has the smaller hind legs and thicker front legs of the Corrupted Gem, as well as its body shape and horns. Jasper provides the color scheme, muted by a mix of the blue monster's color, and human-like upper body.
- No Name Given: Not referred to by any name on the show; Rebecca Sugar stated her color palette was based on zebra jasper, and she would "most likely she would call herself that" if she decided on a name, since different-type Fusions have to decide their own names.
- One-Shot Character: Only appears in "Earthlings".
- Our Centaurs Are Different: Resembles a centaur, having four legs with two-toed feet resembling hooves, and a horselike tail.
- Oxymoronic Being: At the time of her formation, the fusion was essentially corrupted, yet uncorrupted.
- Voice of the Legion: Just like Malachite, though she doesn't speak, just vocalizes Jasper's Evil Laugh with the monster's voice growling to the same rhythm.
An enormous fusion of two Topazes. Like the Ruby fusion, they simply look like a larger version of a regular Topaz.
- Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Their weapon when fused is a pugil stick which, since their gems are in place of where their ears would be, resembles a giant cotton swab.
- Big Guy, Little Guy: The big guy to Aquamarine's little guy.
- Bruiser with a Soft Center: Inside that hulking frame and detached demeanor is a big (pair of) softy/ies, having been moved by Lars and Steven's honesty so much that she nearly helps them escape and commits high treason. It took threatening to separate the two Topazes for her to go back to complying.
- Caged Inside a Monster: Her component Gems form their fused body around captured humans, forming a humanly inescapable mobile prison.
- Carry a Big Stick: Their fusion weapon turns their individual maces into a larger, double-ended one.
- Ironic Name: The golden topaz is a gemstone that increases personal will and the ability to manifest one's desires. The Topaz fusion reveals that her components are unhappy with their role in Homeworld and are unable to express and act on their true feelings.
- Living Emotional Crutch: Apparently one of the Topazes considers the other this (or they both do to each other), her/their presence making her/their job(s) more bearable and not knowing what she would do without her.
- Made of Good: The fusion is composed of a pair of Anti-Villains, but like Garnet and Stevonnie, the relationship she represents is their genuinely caring one. Though it's unclear what type of relationship it is.
- "Pop!" Goes the Human: Steven manages to break the fusion by deliberately getting captured, then forming his bubble inside her body.
- Pronoun Trouble: Topaz is not consistent in referring to her parts in first or third person or herself in the singular or plural, probably because she's not used to talking about fusion openly.I don't know what Topaz would do if she didn't have Topaz. I've always wanted to tell me how I'm helping me through this, but there's always someone between us!
"You can't just walk around on the surface like that! You're off-color, just like the rest of us."
A permafusion between a Homeworld Ruby and Pearl, who both served under an unknown Morganite. Because she is a cross-gem fusion, she is considered an Off-Color and her components were removed from Morganite's service. Rhodonite went into hiding in a disused Kindergarten, where she became part of a group of similarly off-colored gems.
See her folder here for tropes regarding Rhodonite.
Rhodonite: But my story's nothing! I mean Fluorite, how many Gems are you now?
Fluorite: Six. Maybe more, if we meet the right Gem.
A permafusion between six unknown Gems.
See her folder here for tropes regarding Fluorite.
A fusion of two Jades seen during the Era 3 ball.
For her components, see the Jades' folder here.
- Bizarre Alien Limbs: Has four upper arms that merge on either side into two forearms, making them stand out among same-Gem fusions.
- Blush Sticker: Her gems are located on her cheeks, imitating actual blush.
- The Cameo: Appears very briefly in the background in "Homeworld Bound".
- Childish Tooth Gap: Has a tooth gap that emphasizes her childish exuberance at being a fusion.
- Extra Digits: Has six fingers on each hand.
- Extra Eyes: Has her parts' eyes are stacked vertically.
- Genki Girl: After the two Jades fuse at the Era Three ball in solidarity with the Crystal Gems, she joyously exclaims that she's not the only one.
- No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Stands up for the Crystal Gems despite having never met them before, then is forcibly and painfully separated.
- No Name Given: According to the creators, she is a hybrid fusion of two different types of Jade, and despite her and her parts being credited as just "Jade", the fusion's name is actually Lemon Jade.
- One-Shot Character: Aside from a background cameo in "Homeworld Bound", her only appearance is in "Together Alone".
- Significant Double Casting: She has the same voice actor as Nephrite, despite clearly being a different type of Gem, in reference to how both jadeite and nephrite are traditionally referred to as "jade" despite being chemically unrelated.
Crazy Lace Agate
See her folder here for tropes regarding Crazy Lace Agate.
See her folder here for tropes regarding Watermelon Tourmaline.
- All There in the Script: He's Never Given a Name onscreen because everyone was in too much of a rush the one time we see him formed. The name "Steg", though obvious following the pattern set by Stevonnie's, is only found in the closed captions and credits and not even the in-movie credits, which don't specify actors by character.
- Anime Hair: Steven's curls mixed with Greg's already impressive lion's mane create a pompadour-ponytail combo that would make Josuke Higashikata jealous.
- Bare Your Midriff: Steven's shirt is too small for him, exposing Steg's abs.
- Bifurcated Weapon: Instead of combining gem weapons, Steven and Greg's single neck guitars fuse with them into a double neck for Steg to play with his two sets of arms.
- Big Ol' Eyebrows: Steven and Greg already have pretty thick eyebrows; as a result, Steg's eyebrows are absolutely massive and cover a good chunk of his forehead.
- Carpet of Virility: A muscular man with visible hairs all over his arms and chest, though the chest hairs look like they've been recently shaved.
- Cleavage Window: Male example; Steg's formation rips a hole in Steven's shirt to show off Steg's Carpet of Virility.
- Flight: He enhances Steven's floating powers to be able to levitate and soar in any direction, and can either impart those powers to others or just move them around himself.
- Fusion Dissonance: Besides their ages, Greg and Steven look incredibly similar. Steg is such a ripped Hunk that he only superficially resembles either of them. Steven develops a form with a taller, more muscular build late into Future that somewhat resembles Steg, implying the build comes from him.
- Gale-Force Sound: His guitar strums release a pink burst of air that he can channel his levitation through; he can use it to knock people over if he's not just making them float around.
- Heroic Build: Embodies all the great qualities between Steven and his father, and is absolutely ripped.
- Magic Pants: Zigzagged; Greg's pants turn into shorts but are otherwise fine, while Steven's shirt gets partially torn across the chest and shoulders. Oddly, Steven's sandals grow exponentially larger to fit Steg's feet, making him and Sunstone the only fusions to involve a notable change in Steven's sandals.
- Mr. Fanservice: He is a hunk who spends half of his screen time doing sexy poses. The camera actually pans up his stomach, making it a very unambiguous case of Female Gaze.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Unlike Stevonnie's completely human appearance, Steg has four arms. He uses them to play both halves of a double-necked guitar at once.
- Non-Action Guy: His only appearance is to use his guitar to help Pearl regain her memories; fitting because Greg himself is never shown in combat and Steven's too weak at this point to even fight.
- No Pronunciation Guide: His name is not said in the movie, leaving one to wonder if it's pronounced "Steeg" or "Stehg".
- The One Guy: He's the only fully male presenting gem fusion of any variety, due to being a fusion of Steven and Greg — Rainbow Quartz 2.0 can be addressed by male pronouns, but isn't exactly male due to Pearl being part of the fusion.
- One-Shot Character: He only appears in the movie.
- Portmanteau: Like Stevonnie, his name is a combination of his parts' names, in his case the "St" from Steven and the "eg" from Greg.
- The Power of Love: Steg represents the father-son relationship between Greg and Steven.
- The Power of Rock: He sings and plays guitar to use his powers. Fittingly, he was fused when Steven and Greg played their guitars back to back.
- Rapunzel Hair: Steg's hair is longer than Greg's, dropping to the floor despite being taller.
A fusion of the Crystal Gem's Pearl and Pink Pearl/Volleyball.
- All There in the Script: She's only named in the credits.
- Dance Battler: As to be expected from a fusion of two Pearls, Mega Pearl is extremely agile and has a ballet-style method of combat.
- Ermine Cape Effect: Wears a fancy outfit with a cape and crown that doesn't hinder her fighting skills one bit.
- Handicapped Badass: Despite missing an eye, she uses her ribbon whip with precision and hurls Steven through the holes she made with extreme accuracy.
- Improbable Aiming Skills: She tosses her drill ahead to clear a path, and then tosses Steven directly afterward through the holes that it drills. Steven makes it through unscathed even though the drill hasn't even finished going through all the obstacles'before he gets tossed, and Mega Pearl pulled this off despite having only one eye.
- Lady of War: Unsurprisingly for a fusion between two Pearls, she is extremely graceful in combat. One would need to be to use an improbable weapon like a Whip Sword.
- Leitmotif: Prince Pearl creates an actionized piano theme.
- One-Shot Character: Only appears in "Volleyball".
- Power Makes Your Voice Deep: Deedee Magno-Hall affects a slightly deeper voice for the fused Pearl compared to her components.
- Strong and Skilled: Retains Pearl's fighting skill on top of a very noticeable boost in power.
- This Is a Drill: In "Volleyball", the Pearls' weapons combine into a Whip Sword initially, and Mega Pearl turns it into a drill to cut holes through several walls.
- Whip Sword: Her weapon is a bladed ribbon so sharp it can cut through wire.
- Whole Costume Reference: To Revolutionary Girl Utena; her outfit resembles the Ohtori Academy's boy's uniform - Utena's iconic outfit - and her hairstyle is a combination between Anthy's hairstyle and Utena's pink-colored hair, complete with a tiara reminiscent of the one Anthy wears as the Rose Bride. The official name of her Leitmotif is "Prince Pearl", referencing Utena's desire to become a prince.
The fusion of Aquamarine and "Eyeball" Ruby, formed to exact revenge on Steven and the Crystal Gems.
- Achievements in Ignorance: She seriously gets under Steven's skin with her Poke the Poodle pranks as he tries to figure out what she's up to, when actually she was convinced no one knew who she's a Fusion of and was genuinely trying to get the group to consider her a friend.
- Aliens of London: She has a British accent; it's a very over-the-top Cockney one instead of Aquamarine's received pronunciation.
- An Ice Person: Uses an ice sword and conjures ice falchions that she uses as projectiles.
- Animal Motifs: Has a subtle bird motif—her name is "Bluebird Azurite", was introduced in an episode entitled "Bluebird" and her wings are slightly more avian looking than Aquamarine's. Her six limbs and the fact that she has four wings also cause her to resemble an insect.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Much like Aquamarine, she pretends to be nice only to stab her enemies in the back when they aren't looking. Unlike the first time, Steven immediately guesses that she's up to no good.
- Cool Sword: Upgrades Ruby's dagger into a falchion made of ice.
- Discard and Draw: By Era 3, Aquamarine no longer has her wand, but by fusing with Eyeball, they can conjure ice falchions and shoot them at enemies.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: She is baffled by the Crystal Gems' willingness to give her a chance despite recognizing her.
- Foil: Like Malachite, Bluebird is a foil to Garnet, Bluebird is a fusion between a Ruby and a refined and small blue gem, but is built entirely on hate rather than love. She's a mishmash of her components' colors, which don't blend on any part of her, and she loses an eye instead of gaining another one.
- Fragile Speedster: Her wings make her very fast and nimble, but Alexandrite easily finishes her off in one hit.
- HeelFace Turn: Zigzagged. She is one of the few antagonists in the series who does not reform to good in any way, and refuses to hear any of Steven's peaceful pleading with them that changed the minds of so many other Gems. However, Garnet states that the Crystal Gems will squash Bluebird if she tries anything, and given this literally happens later, implies she saw it with her future vision; given she continued to trust Bluebird, it's possible she saw another future where Bluebird genuinely wound up reforming.
- Hostage Situation: Lulls the Crystal Gems into a false sense of security then kidnaps Greg so her components can blackmail Steven.
- Insectoid Alien: Resembles an insect due to her small size, multiple legs, and wings. Eyeball's gem even looks like a compound eye.
- Karma Houdini Warranty: A collective one for both Aquamarine and Eyeball, who managed to get away with their crimes relatively unscathed in the original series. The two are given a beating by Steven, and are subjected to a Curb-Stomp Battle as Bluebird by Alexandrite. They do, however, end up escaping again.
- Magic Knight: She has Aquamarine's hydrokinesis and Eyeball's weapon training and tends to use both in tandem.
- Merging Mistake: Not nearly as much as Malachite, but due to being a fusion of two Gems who can't stand each other, her legs are rather awkwardly configured, with two on each side and seemingly no extra hips to support them. Her skin is also a patchy mish-mash of her components' color schemes instead of blending them together evenly.
- Morphic Resonance: Has Aquamarine's blazer and wings, and Eyeball's eye shape and hair color.
- The Napoleon: The shortest Gem fusion seen in the show, not much bigger than an unfused Ruby, and she's literally made of her components' hatred of Steven.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: Despite spending much of her introduction pulling pranks badly and wrongly assuming the Crystal Gems fell for her Paper-Thin Disguise, she still nearly kills Greg.
- One-Shot Character: Only appears in "Bluebird".
- Paper-Thin Disguise: Her components created her with the intention of infiltrating the Crystal Gems, but they all see through the disguise instantly.
- Small Name, Big Ego: She and her components vastly overestimate their own capabilities. Her pranks are misunderstood and she wrongly assumed that the Crystal Gems couldn't see through their disguise. Once the other Gems get involved, Alexandrite smooshes Bluebird in a single blow.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: She bears many similarities to Malachite; She's a four-legged fusion of a fighting Gem and a Gem with powers relating to water, whose components don't like each other and is the embodiment of a negative relationship, and wields ice powers on top of her component's powersets. She even gets defused by Alexandrite. However, unlike Malachite, her components at least agree on their main goal, while Malachite's components were locked in a Battle in the Center of the Mind for much of her existence. She also is at least stable enough to create a fusion weapon, while Malachite was stuck with Jasper's default helmet.
- The Power of Hate: She is the embodiment of her components' grudge against Steven.
- The Prankster: Plays a bunch of pranks on Steven to annoy him. She doesn't quite seem to understand the point of most of them, such as pulling a "Kick Me" Prank on Steven with a sign that reads "Tell me I smell good", and TPing Steven's car by placing whole rolls neatly on the roof.
- Storm of Blades: One of Bluebird's attacks creates duplicates of her sword and sends them flying towards her target, spreading ice from the impact sites.
- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: The only thing that unites Aquamarine and Eyeball, who don't love or even like each other in the slightest is a shared hatred of Steven. Steven realizes just how tenuous their bond is when he sees them struggle to fuse and start arguing, and his speech on healthy relationships irritates them both so much that their disgust pulls Bluebird back together.
- Troll: Loves nothing more than making Steven suffer, although she mostly tends to cause minor inconveniences at best.
