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


I love Pearl. She has such an interesting backstory, and character. She’s been through a lot, but she doesn’t let that slide off and forget about it. She remembers it and learns. - SilverstreamSucks

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

She is complex, but I don't particularly like her. She has a lot of unrevealed past experiences, which honestly I'm curious about. They could of revealed more of her past instead of sticking her in a barn with peridot.

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 Amethyst

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 Rose Quartz

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

4 words: "A Single Pale Rose." I won't say anything else in order to avoid spoilers. - Atham

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

Every Rose has a thorn

5 Jasper
6 Centipeetle
7 Steven Quartz Universe
8 Bismuth Bismuth

Bismuth will most likely come back.

9 Pink Diamond

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

10 Blue Diamond

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!
