One day, when Steven imagines what Garnet did during a particular mission, he invents this fictional caricature of her to put into his story, where she agrees to help Ringo get his post as guardian of the Sacred Magic Gem of Ultimate Power back from the Foxman. While she's supposed to represent Garnet, she comes off as more of her own character by virtue of being how Steven views the real deal.

For the real Garnet, visit her character page.

  • Bald of Awesome: Turns out she's just been wearing that blocky afro like a hat, and baldness itself is awesome as she gains large amount of power from her taking it off.
  • Berserk Button: Disrespecting Steven pisses her off enough to fly into an Unstoppable Rage.
  • Cool Big Sis: How she acts around Hopper and Hoppy, an aspect derived from her real counterpart. Just like the real Garnet, she's also this towards Steven, whom she calls her "favorite person in the world".
  • The Hero: An Affectionate Parody of such, since the whole episode she's in is a pastiche of action anime in general.
  • Morph Weapon: Her most-used power is growing and shrinking her gauntlets. While she uses this mostly for training, she's able to use it in a fight should she be pushed hard enough. In fact, we saw imaginary Garnet used this and then we found out real Garnet could do the same.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Less detail and animation is put into her, and everything else in the episode, for that matter.
  • Power Limiter: Her blocky afro is also a heavy weight and her power skyrockets when she takes it off.
  • Power Makes Your Hair Grow: She had a Bald of Awesome for most of her story, with her hair being a helmet, but her Heroic Second Wind makes her spontaneously grow a new one the size of a small building.
  • Readings Blew Up the Scale: At one point her power level skyrockets so much that it breaks Hoppers power scanner. Shortly afterward, her power spikes again to such an extent that it fixes the scanner only to blow it up again.
  • The Stoic: Though unlike real Garnet, she more often displays emotions.

One of Imagination-Garnet's friends, a Funny Animal girl frog who has a knack for explosives, and reading people's power levels with a tablet-like device. She accompanies Imagination-Garnet on her mission to help Ringo.

A female samurai rabbit that is also a friend of Imagination-Garnet along with Hopper. Loves to train a lot, which aids Imagination-Garnet when she needs to confront The Foxman and later Ringo when his true colors are revealed.

Voiced by: Zachary Steel

An imaginary character created when Steven guesses what Garnet's mission was. Looking very similar to Ronaldo Fryman, he first appears seeking help, claiming a fox used a Gem of Ultimate Power to kick him out of his post as its guardian. After Imagination-Garnet beats the fox, Ringo reveals his true colors as a villain, and powers himself up to become Ultimate Ringo.

  • Anime Hair: He has a ring-shaped bun, which he sticks the Gem of Ultimate Power into to become Ultimate Ringo.
  • And You Were There: It's interesting that Steven chooses Ronaldo as the template for his imaginary villain, rather than a more antagonistic character (such as Lars) or just a random monster. This may be due to Steven repressing his less-ideal opinions about Ronaldo and his crazy obsessions and impulses.
  • Foreshadowing: When he places the Gem of Ultimate Power into his hair, he sticks the gem's pavilion inward so that the top of it is facing outward. It's later revealed Pink Diamond rotated her gem in the same manner when she became Rose Quartz.
  • Gender-Blender Name: His name is pronounced like the Japanese name Ringo (RIN-go, as opposed to REENG-o), which is usually a girl's name.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: Steven just made up this character as an antagonist for his story and didn't seem to bother coming up with much in terms of motive.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Trapped in his own Ringo-Zone by the person he manipulated to gain power.
  • Insistent Terminology: The name of his One-Winged Angel form is Ultimate Ringo, not just Ringo, and he corrects the trio multiple times.
    Garnet: Ringo
    Ringo: Ultimate!
  • Kick the Dog: He turns a picture of Steven and Garnet into an onion ring, and eats it, after he beats her down the first time.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He makes up a story to get Garnet, Hoppy, and Hopper to fight for him and get the Gem of ultimate power for himself.

    The Foxman 

The Foxman
Voiced by: Matthew Moy

An imaginary anthropomorphic fox inhabiting the shrine of the Gem of Ultimate Power. Ringo claimed he kicked him out of the temple, but the foxman was actually the temple's guardian.

  • And You Were There: Not as obvious as Ringo, but the foxman has the same voice and hair color as Lars. The foxman turns out to actually be a good guy, reflecting how Steven views Lars as actually being a decent person.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Ringo turns him into an onion ring. Garnet returns him to his true foxy form by the end.
  • Cunning Like a Fox: Averted, he relies more on brute strength while his nemesis Ringo uses trickery and deceit.
  • Expy: By becoming a friend along with Hoppy and Hopper, they become just one falcon away from forming team Star Fox. Though he doesn't seem to have an expy all to himself like the other two do.
  • Funny Animal: He's an anthropomorphic fox.
  • Good All Along: Initially portrayed as the villainous gem thief by Ringo, he turns out to be the benevolent protector of the shrine.
  • No Name Given: He's only ever referred to as "the foxman".
  • One-Shot Character: Only appears in "Garnet's Universe".
  • Top-Heavy Guy: The foxman's legs are short and skinny—not even half the height of his ridiculously large arms and torso.
