Top 10 Most Complex Steven Universe Characters

Steven Universe has a lot of complex, well rounded characters. May contain spoilers. You've been warned.

The Top Ten

1 Pearl Pearl Pearl is a fictional character from the 2013 animated series Steven Universe, created by Rebecca Sugar . She is a "Gem", a fictional alien being that exists as a magical gemstone projecting a holographic body . more.

Pearl is the most complex for sure, also Lapis. But pearl lovr rose so much and rose fell in love with another person. I feel so bad for pearl


2 Lapis Lazuli Lapis Lazuli Lapis Lazuli is a homeworld gem from the 2013 Cartoon Network series Steven Universe. She is currently living in an old barn with Peridot. She has the ability to control water and she can sprout her very own water wings.

Lapis Lazuli is actually the most complex character in the show. I don't really think it's Pearl, we already know about her past, her job as a servant like Pearls are made, how she fought with the crystal gems and Rose, her "feelings";As well as the other gems, we already know what is their purpose when they are made and what they do and have done from the war and such. But Lapis, no, we don't know much about her, we just know about her experiences that revolves around her imprisonment and suffering from a very abusive and unstable relationship. We still don't know what's her role in the show, who is she really? I think that's what make her so interesting and mysterious for me. - MuffinBarf

Definitely the most complex and mysterious one. Suffered a lot, many plots in her personality and her unconditional love for Steven is what makes her special. My favorite.

3 Amethyst

There is a lot of things in Amethyst's past that she has been internalizing for so long. She has a very low self esteem but rather act easy going and the cool sister figure to Steven than seek help. - Ruee

Amythest is quite complex, in my opinion, more so than pearl. She's always being ridiculed for being childish, and for being a runt. It's toughened her up, and though she doesn't show her true emotions a lot, she's very complex.

4 Rose Quartz

I love the episodes about Rose Quartz, we are finding out more and more about her all the time.

She is a complete mystery and there's a lot we don't know about her.

Every Rose has a thorn

5 Centipeetle

I want to know what gem she was, SO BAD. - Ruee

6 Jasper

In the more recent episodes, we are shown that there is more to Jasper than her being abusive, power hungry, and unwilling to change. We learned a bit about other things but instead of giving a lot of answers, it started bringing up a lot of questions. And we may not even know anymore because *cough* spoilers.. - Ruee

7 Steven Quartz Universe

Steven is starting to become more of a complex character the more the show keeps progressing. Which is very good because he's the main character. It's always good to have a well rounded main character, especially in cartoons. - Ruee

8 Bismuth Bismuth

Bismuth will most likely come back.

9 Blue Diamond

She's so mysterious, I need to know more about her. - Ruee

10 Pink Diamond

*SPOILER ALERT* It was confirmed that Rose isn't Pink Diamond in the recent episodes. The Rose is Pink Diamond theory is dead. However another theory was confirmed to be true in canon that was given to use in the newer episodes but I won't spoil what it is in case you haven't seen it. - Ruee

I really want to see an episode all about the diamonds. Especially pink diamond.

The Contenders

11 Peridot Peridot Peridot is from the show Steven Universe created by Rebecca Sugar. The show airs on Cartoon Network and has grown in popularity over the years. The character Peridot is an alien gem from a planet called Homeworld, Peridot is introduced in the episode "Marble Madness," when Steven and the Crystal Gems more.
12 Sapphire Sapphire Sapphire is from the show Steven Universe made by Rebecca Sugar and many amazing animators and voice actors. more.
13 Ruby Ruby
14 Garnet

I should've made this higher. Oops. - Ruee

15 Connie Maheswaran Connie Maheswaran V 1 Comment
16 Kiki Pizza Kiki Pizza
17 Yellow Diamond

Yellow Diamond seems really mean and cold-hearted, but that's all we know about her so far. I bet she's going to end up being the most redeemed character on the show. Just watch. Maybe she'll even be the one to stand up to Blue Diamond!

18 Stevonnie Stevonnie Stevonnie is a fictional character from the 2013 animated series Steven Universe. They are a human/gem hybrid fusion of Steven Universe and Connie Maheswaran.
