Best Steven Universe Charactersgumballgal123
The Top Ten
I love peridot because of her personality and quirkiness she is such a fun character she has that comic relief humor yet being semi-serious at times which is pretty cool she is such a cool character I love her to death she is so fun & awesome and her progression from a semi-serious threat to a recurring goofy villain to a angry little dorito to a reluctant ally to a friend and a member of the crystal gems I loved seeing her progression to a friend over time it really is a cool thing she is probably one of the most progressed character in cartoons she really is a cool character and seeing her being more and more redeemed and her truly caring for her friends is really sweet from enemies to good friends its really nice seeing her change for the better and we can't forget about her calling yellow diamond a clod to her face was really a milestone in terms of she becoming a part of the crystal gems its really really cool she all in all is my favorite character in the series she truly is ...more
I love her ignorance about Earth culture. At first I though she was a ruthless, cold blooded gem who wanted to destroy the crystal gems but now her new form which makes her completely harmless. I also loved the part when she revolted against her kind by insulting Yellow Diamond when she called her a clod. Her confident personality seems to change if her "limb enhancers" are not attached to her. Even though she never shows it, she seems to have concern over others such as when Steven passed out due to hallucinations and dizziness. Even without her limb enhancers, she has discovered her true ability, Ferrokinesis that allows her to control and levitate metal to her own will. Since Steven was her first friend, she seems to cling on him at times. Even without many abilities, she is strong, confident, and very funny and that is why I think Peridot is the best character in Steven Universe
Peridot is great because of all her quirks; relatable ones, too, since admit it or not, most of us fans are insecure and awkward with next to none physical capabilities who hides behind some kind of blanket. We can be rude, we can be inconsiderate, we can be completely heartless and moronic. With most characters, them apologizing and making up for their mistakes are brushed over or skipped. This has been always a big annoyance for me. But Peridot on the other hand, is explored thoroughly. Almost everything she gone through it relatable. And we can't say that she's without flaw; she had tons. And the best thing is that she tells us that no, it's not okay, and yes, you have to make up for it, and no, you can't expect it to just blow over and more importantly, yes, you will still be loved. As was proven by her placed in the top of the poll!

I relate so much to her, she is very realistic with lots of flaws and throughout the entire show I just want to give her a hug. She also brings a lot of the comedy to the show by constantly arguing with Amethyst and just overall she's amazing. I love how she's a parent figure to Steven but at the same time she almost dislikes Steven for taking Rose away from her. I understand people not liking Pearl from the first two or so episodes but I loved her from the moment she was introduced. She is a very interesting character to follow.
I just really enjoy her character. She has a really cute personality, and she's one of the most developed characters on the show besides probably Steven. She has realistic flaws, and a really great singing voice. Pearl is definitely the best gem, I don't understand why there are so many Pearl haters, she's awesome.
In all honesty, Pearl probably should be my favorite character, but falls second to Lapis and I don't really know why. Pearl such an amazing character because she is flawed, but very likable as she works on her faults as the series progresses. She makes for great comic relief at times and can get pretty salty, but also has some very serious moments mostly regarding her getting over the loss of Rose Quartz. She might just be the most detailed and well thought out character on the show.
YES... she is so relatable. I love all her salt, and her voice just gives me goose bumps. Of course, I love Peridot, Steven, Lapis, Garnet, and Amethyst for the same reason. They feel real. But if I had to choose, I'd go Pearl.V 72 Comments
Although, one may fight that Garnet is just "another character" in the series Steven Universe, I believe that she is more than that. She is just like all of us even though we may not realize it. Garnet chooses to use a monotonous voice to hide any possible emotions. Garnet has dealt with pain and suffering or a while that she decided to not show herself until it was necessary. Throughout the series, Garnet expresses herself through saving the universe, teaching Steven, and conversing with various characters. These aspects show a lot of Garnet's emotions but if only one could see that. We learn that Garnet is a funny and pretty smart and to some, quite attractive. These detail lead me to believe that Garnet is one of the greatest fictional characters out there in the animated world. - MarinetteNoir
Garnet is by far the smoothest, coolest, smartest and sweetest character in Steven Universe. She is very relaxed and never questioned but deep down she is caring and would never let anything hurt her friends. She is like the group leader in the series and has a sweet relationship with Steven but when he's in trouble she lets her mom side out. In the song stronger than you it showed how Ruby's and Sapphire's relationship was so stable with the power of love even if they were the complete opposite. She's not a perfect gem and is scared sometimes too but she knows most answers in life and uses them too protect the earth for she was intelligent enough to see some potential in it
She is my favorite because she is the most overpowered gem also my favorite moment in the show is when she jumps out of the van and rolls then she gets on top of the van my favorite song in the show stronger than you sang by garnet also she is an OP fusion
What can I say she is just AWESOME :PV 62 Comments
Lapis is my favorite gem, next to Garnet and Steven (and Stevvonie is she counts). Her character is so interesting. She has a mystery background and I. The mirror we saw a side if we didn't get to see when she was out. In the mirror she seemed to like Steven (for his innocence and human nature, I assume) and liked to see him laugh. You could just tell that she want evil, she just wanted a friend, company. She seemed like a playful character. The only reason Lapis attacked the gems is because they emprisoned her and she was clearly confused and angry and hurt. She seems to still care for Steven and I hope she does get her peace at some pint in the show because she seriously couldn't have a worst awakening into the world. I hope she gets her redemption and happiness.
Can we vote multiple times because I think lapis, peridot, garnet, pearl, Greg, amethyst, and Steven are all amazing characters? I also like jasper and Connie a lot too. I personally just chose lapis because I can relate to her on so many levels. I too have depression and find it hard adjusting on this earth although I been here going on 23 years. There are also so many days like today where I just feel numb so this paragraph I'm typing probably makes no sense but I just love how complex lapis is and how she has done some questionable things in her past that still haunts her each day but bit by bit with the help of Steven and especially peridot she works towards forgiveness for not only herself but others, and despite her pain she tries and although she may never fully heal she makes meep morps, watches camp pining hearts, helps the crystal gems and raises pumpkin with peridot; finding a home away from homeworld and I think that's beautiful. - evena
She's a pretty cool gen with cool powers. She just seems so unlucky first being at the wrong place at the wrong time and being trapped in a mirror. Then kidnapped as soon as she was able to return home. Then had to trap herself to protect Steven from jasper. That was very sweet of her to do that for Steven. And she also did something cool also involving jasper as when he tried to fuse with her again, she told her something along the lines of 'NO! I was unhappy & never want to feel that way again! It was an unhealthy relationship! ' So she's someone you can look up to with that, showing if someone makes u unhappy, don't b with them (something I think WOMAN need to realize when in a relationship with a man 'they love').
Amazing design, my favorite gemstone, amazing personality, Mysterious and vulnarble. I could never ask more for a favorite characterV 74 Comments
Everyone loves Garnet and Pearl much more than they love Amethyst. If you think Crystal Gem, you'll probably think of Pearl, Garnet, or Steven. Nobody really remembers Amethyst. Most people just dismiss her as the comic relief character/the silly one of the group. That causes her to be really underrated. I like Amethyst. She's probably one of the most relatable characters on the show. She's insecure and gets angry for no apparent reason due to this insecurity. She wants to feel strong and equal to her teammates, but she knows and feels like she's the weakest at times. There are lots of us who have those moments of insecurity where we feel bad about ourselves and hate ourselves. Amethyst still manages to be the life of the party and a fun character while actually having a personality.
Amethyst is usually seen as the side character. People see her as gross, uncaring, rude, and many other negative things. People see Pearl and Garnet as Steven's moms, not Amethyst. But as I rewatch many episodes, I see that she is one of the most motherly to Steven, probably the most caring figure to Steven (other than Connie and Greg of course). In Jailbreak, she keeps Steven in a protective hold, keeping him safe from Malachite, a scowl on her face warning her not to come near. In Friend Ship, she is the one who catches Steven, determined to keep him safe before herself. Even though they have fought, what characters haven't? In the end, their love shines through. Amethyst always shared everything about herself and everything she knew with Steven, while the other gems still have secrets they haven't shared yet. Amethyst grew closest to Steven, enough to be the one to be able to fuse with him! Amethyst was quick to forgive Peridot, even when she had unintentionally said so many cruel ...more
While I love all of the characters on the show, Amethyst is my favorite. She's the perfect character to balance out Garnet and Pearl, who are both fairly serious. She is also usually the irresponsible character who allows Steven to get his hands on Gem Technology to cause mischief, and she is just all around funny.
Amethyst is baeV 54 Comments
I wish Steven was my little brother.
Amazing character. He is filled with emotions, and always likes to see the best in everyone. I really enjoy how, even when he tries to be serious, his emotions get the best of him and he ends up crying or something along those lines. I also like how determined he is to be like his mom, when his moms goal was to be free to be whoever and what ever you want. I guess wanting to be like her counts, but he does it because he thinks, that everyone thinks, he should be like that as well.
Steven is awesome he is able to motivate and inspire people. He is very naive and caring for others and always sees the good in anyone like Rose.
I'll bet Steven is the only hero who tries to persuade, understand, and love his enemy, instead of physically fighting them. He has grown so much mature throughout the series, and he can move people with only his words.V 45 Comments
Connie is AMAZING. She's beautiful, smart, strong willed, and I love the episodes with her in them! I love Connie's relationship with Steven and Pearl, but I wish she would interact with other characters too.
Not only that, but she is very realistic and likable. The only problem is that she isn't in enough episodes.
Connie is adorable and awesome in Sworn To the Sword.
She is so sweet. to be honest, I actually like Peridot and Lapis more, but Connie needs more appreciation.V 13 Comments
Greg bounced back from Rose Quartz's "death," with an optimistic attitude. Even as he ages, and starts to bald, he still manages to love his son and not pin the blame onto him like other did. He loves his son, and is proud of Steven for all he goes through. He has an estranged relationship with Steven, due to Steven being more often than not hanging out with the Crystal Gems, who blamed the death of Rose on him. Even though he suffers these psychological problems, he wakes up every morning in his van with a beaming smile.
The most supportive father ever. He's always there for his son and you can tell how much he strives to be a good father for Steven. In addition he cared for Rose so much and loved her. He is more than the "silly dad" character that most may peg him as at first
Greg and Rose should still be together. They were and always will be the best couple.
He is so cute - Nateboy604V 10 Comments
My love for Jasper comes from a place of sympathy. No one really takes the time to ask her why she does the things she does, and the first time they kinda did in the show, she was already half corrupted! She didn't ask to be held prisoner by Lapis at the bottom of the ocean, and fusion has clearly taken a huge toll on her mental health and she has to deal with it all on her own. People consider her the main bad guy of the show right now, and that's true to an extent, but she's just going above and beyond, doing her job for a boss she doesn't even wanna be working for! She should really get a good promotion for everything she's put up with! Not only all that, but her character design is flawless! Her body type, facial expression and skin texture match Jaspers perfectly, and her corruption design looked so much like a ocean Jasper I was literally screaming at my T.V.. I personally think Jasper is the best example of a woman who is physically strong, and isn't traditionally beautiful, ...more
Jasper isn't my favorite but she is really cool. Her weapon is kind of weird but logical horoscope-wise. Her smile is kind of creepy but she has pretty eyelashes (she's the only gem with them, I also think she wears mascara).
Jasper needs more love. Not only does her fusion (malachite) have the most badass theme EVER, but she is a fun character to watch. We need to see more of her!
She is not evil its just from her point of view rose is a rebel that killed her diamond and made her sufferV 34 Comments
Wasn't He Already On This List?
There really should be a way to delete copies like this. - KingDJ
Already on the list...
He should be number 1V 7 Comments
He's god damn pink lion who can make portals and blow up stuff
Such a likable fun character. He makes me either fall on the floor with laughter or saying " damn, how does he do that? "
He is a pink lion! He is like th best unicorn ever.
Lion is so adorable! Literally! His roar is just like RAWR!V 21 Comments
She's so serene, graceful, & classy. She saw Ruby for who she was individually, rather than seeing her as 'just another ruby' as so many other Gems did, & treated her with respect, despite how Ruby had a 'lower rank' than her & the way Sapphire fell in love with Ruby was so adorable - the two of them really improve each other because they're opposites & they present one another with different views of the world. I also admire the way that even though she was treated very well before the first time she fused with Ruby, she didn't allow it to turn her into a snob, which would've been very easy to do - she always remained gracious & polite. Another reason I love Sapphire is she's very unique, with her abilities of seeing into the future, plus, her design is gorgeous.
To be honest, I didn't like Sapphire when I seen her in her first few episodes because of the decisions she made. But as I watched more episodes with her, I realized she just made the normal mistakes that everyone makes. Also, she found love out of not being perfect.
Sapphire is calm and collected, and has many problems due to her future vision, as said in the "Here Comes A Thought" song. Sapphire can be a helper to Ruby to calm her nerves down, and she makes me smile.
Meh. Overrated, somewhat good character. - BoshuaV 17 Comments
It's a little weird but I probably relate most to Ruby in the entire T.V show, we both are HUGE hit heads but in the end, we're the ones who cares the most.
If I compare myself to Ruby and Sapphire when I get into a big fight with my best friend, I would be in the middle of Ruby and Sapphire. I wouldn't be as mad as Ruby, but I wouldn't be as calm as Sapphire. - funnyuser
I feel like Ruby is just so cute, and cares so much about Sapphire that she has to be my favorite. She seems to have one of the biggest hearts on the show and I love her to pieces.
Ruby is annoying and funnyV 19 Comments
Immediately when I saw Rose's design, before I even watched Steven Universe (just kinda saw it floating around the internet before I even knew what the show was about) I LOVED it. Her beauty isn't the only reason I like her, but it's the only reason I started watching Steven Universe. Ha ha.
Anyway, the main reason I find her interesting is that characters in the show have very critical views of her: Either she's amazing or terrible. That is the interesting part about all this: She's gone. She isn't here to ever voice her opinion, to ever give justice to anything that other people would like to accuse her about. Its almost like this: People make big mistakes in their lives, not everyone is perfect but everyone will act on their own accord. She might see killing/shattering someone else as justified if it can save the planet she loves. Even if she was truly horrible as some may think (like Steven, who seems to be worried that his mother was a "bad" person), you have to ...more
Rose Quartz will always remain a mystery. The Crystal Gems don't say much about her and she is rarely referenced. She is the reason that their are theories about the show and she gives the show a more thought provoking and mysterious side. She was first described as a saint but now is described as someone who will do whets best for the earth. She gives the show reason and all of the show's theories revolve around her. Though one person commented, "I want Rose to return. She's my favorite and she's not dead! Confirmed by the creator of the show. - Stevenuniversefangirl". If Rose Quartz were to return the show would lose all of it's mystery. I'm sorry if I sound like I'm being rude.
But hey. Check out my website and don't abuse the comment section.
I don't like the theory that Rose was Pink Diamond. Yes, there is evidence of Pink Diamond. And yes, Rose's gemstone is pink. But Rose cannot be Pink Diamond, because Yellow and Blue Diamond had, well, DIAMOND-shaped gemstones. I think that Rose was just a Quartz-type Gem that served under Pink Diamond. Other evidence is that Jasper and Yellow Pearl serve under Yellow Diamond and their gemstones are yellow. Blue Pearl and Sapphire served under Blue Diamond and their gemstones are blue. Subtle clues like these thst are left by the Crewniverse are sometimes crucial to solving the mysteries of the show.
I just LOVE roses desighn and charecter arc and I find her personality very unique and loving longit story short rose is lifeV 12 Comments
Opal's so cool. Her voice is pretty but she reminds me of Garnet.
Opal is awesome she's my birthstone
We need more Opal. Best Fusion - Stevenuniversefangirl
Opal is so pretty. We need to see more of her and her badassery. - vimogennV 7 Comments
I wish Sadie got more love from the fandom. Sadie and Lars were both the first characters Rebecca Sugar ever came up with for the show, so to see them not getting the credit that they deserve from the fandom is a bummer. I actually enjoy the episodes with Sadie in them the most! She's my favorite character and she's so adorable.
Sadie should be at the top 15 she has a lot of character development and has really grown as Stevens friend and you can see how caring and understanding she is not to mention she's a bad ass in tense moments
Always there when steven needs a donut
Sadie is lifeV 14 Comments
Sardonyx is very talented and powerful, she's my favorite fusion! She's my favorite character, even though she appeared once!
People who say they hate her are lying
"You'll have to excuse me, I haven't exactly been myself lately." That joke alone was enough to make her one of my favorite fusions second to garnet. Plus she has one of my favorite weapons.
OHOHOHOHOHOHOO She is one of my favorite fusions - vimogennV 18 Comments
I love how she angered the diamonds and thanks to her I'm suspicious of them
Blue Zircon: Ace Attorney - Cartoonfan202
How did she figure it out?
She reminded me of Phoinex Wright for I imagine his hair on hers and the OBJECTION attitude she gives.She gave theorists a HUGE piece we were missing on Pink Diamonds shattering and Rose Quartz herself.V 2 Comments
Malachite is my most favorite out of every fusion in Steven Universe with her laid back but reckless attitude an awesome theme
Malachite is super cute. Everyone thinks she's a monster but I think she's absolutely gorgeous.
Too bad Jasper is evil
Malachite is unstable but I want jasper to join the crystal gems and be renewed and accept that pink diamond is shattered and that rose quartz is steven now. lapis and jasper could maybe form malachite again some time.. that would be amazing.V 7 Comments
Stevonnie is so fun. She reminds me of how awesome being alive is. She seems to have no problems with life. And she looks like me...
Even though Stevonnie got a little freaked out while she was dancing, I blame EVERYTHING ON KEVIN!
But Stevonnie is just a first fusion. By that, I mean that she is the first fusion who was made by combining a human and half human. She doesn't know everything about her. She just AN EXPERIENCE!
Stevonnie is really cool. She/he has a nice character design, and is a fusion involving a half gem and a human! Greg couldn't even fuse with Rose. But that's okay
Best character of all, brings out the best in Steven and Connie and is so unaware of her/his? Lovers. I LOVE IT!
Stevonnie's genderless,but I think you're right.V 7 Comments
Onion might not say much, but he sure is one creepy yet hilarious little kleptomaniac. He only acts out because his father is always out at sea. He's one of those background characters I feel really sorry for.
Everyone knows onion is an onion secretly. I like onions because they remind me of ogres! He gives me those SHREK vibes
Because Onion is so cute and the way he talks! And giving Steven the best Gal toy was so nice!
Why this hate of onion?V 5 Comments
I love Sugilite. She doesn't let anything bother her and she is voiced by my favorite singer, Nicki Minaj. She also just gets the job done and doesn't spend time laughing crazily. (cough, Sardonyx, cough). I hope to see her again!
Sugilite is awesome but I like malachite more
She's so awesome! Also Nicki Manaj voices her!
She's the ugliest fusion though lmao - HaikaV 2 Comments
I think this character is one of my favorites in this show. I know it's odd since she was only on the screen for like 10 seconds, but I really love her! There is some great fanfiction about her that has shaped my idea of what she would be like and I love the design. I hope she appears in a later episode.
She has a beautiful design.. I hope we see her again! (and by the way, SeeU, the blue pearl is Blue Diamond's Pearl)
Blue Pearl, only there for 10 seconds, one of the most loved characters
I loved her singing and She is so beautiful. - StevenuniversefangirlV 3 Comments
Sour Cream is epic! I think he's the best of the towns people, after Connie.
Who has a crush on sour cream? I don't have a crush on sour cream... "blushes and awkwardly walks away"
Sour cream is not only a cool character but his brother is onion and onion is hilarious
Pants become shorts!
I love Sour Cream!
Padparadscha is amazing because she is so cute and she displays disability perfectly, she tries her best to tell everyone else her prediction even though she knows her future visions delayed. She just tries her best.
I predict that someone will vote for me! How exciting!

If this is your favorite character look up none of your bismuth on YouTube.
So far we've only seen her briefly in Same old world, but judging by the preview of bismuth's return, she'll be a fan favourite in no time!
I ship Bismuth with Malachite. Power couple!
I feel like they got the idea from Maui from Moana.
You're no son of mine.
Aww, what a cute little goat!
Wy-Six (Y-6) is the funniest character in the episode, "The Zoo." He provides comic relief with his quirkiness and his unawareness of the Earth. I laughed anytime he was on the screen and I sincerely hope you all find him funny as well. - Lr8425
He HAS to come back lol
Amazing Character! They have to bring Y-6 BACK!
What happens to the other people from the zoo? Like Jay-10?! Love this episode but really should tell us more about it! Anyway Wy-Six is the best character on Steven universe and deserves to come back! The chossening was the best! “I chose Gareg”.-Wy-SixV 5 Comments

She's so chill and funny

How can you not like a fusion that uses a yo-yo
It was hilarious when she beat up jasper
BEST FUSION EVER! She is so cool that it makes Star Butterfly look like Dora the explorer!

The first episode of season 5 was leaked online, and let me just say it completely changed my opinion of Topaz - ColdTurkey
She was so nice to Steven and Lars!
I love topaz. She was so nice! - LapisBob
Plus that bonding moment will help Steven fuse with Lars in Lars' head! The crewniverse will get so ticked off I revealed that. I'm an ex-crewniverse memeber.
His hair is weird. He has french fry hair! LOL. FRyman is cool. I guess I would say he's my favorite, because he's like my dad. I always LOVE the episodes about the Fryman family the best.
Not my favorite character, but the smirk she gave to Peridot during her call to Yellow Diamond was hilarious!
I like Kiki, she got good character development. I wish her and Sadie would start hanging out and become friends. They don't really hang out with anybody like Jenny and Lars do. - Stevenuniversefangirl
Kiki is so amazing he works so hard in the pizzeria
You're just doing this because you're running out of characters are you?
Jamie is likable he is very passionate and he's hilarious he needs more character development he is very likable I disagree with the commentator below me
Jamie is so cute! He hasn't been on any of the new episodes, I would love to see more of him, or an episode about him.
Give Jamie a girlfriend! He deserves love and he wants it.
Annoying high pitched voice! There's nothing to like about this brat
Buck is the man! He's so cool and chill. Buck needs his own episode. Sour Cream had his own episode so Buck needs his own too.
My favorite character and the best cool kid
Very cool dude.
Favorite Ruby from the Ruby Squad. - StevenuniversefangirlV 1 Comment
I love Peedee! He is so adorable and it's about time he gets his own episode. I want more character development from him. I want to know more about him. Love for Peedee!
He is just funny and so embarrassed around his older brother! It's hilarious when he wouldn't let go of the counter when they had to evacuate!
He needs more episodes. He hasn't got much character development. - Stevenuniversefangirl
In season 1 we learned Steven and peedee were goodfriends because they hang out at Funland in the summer he needs major character development we need to see why he loves his work so much and how come his childhood is not as funV 1 Comment
Holly Blue Agate (her full name) is a character introduced in the episode "Gem Heist". She's one of those villains you love to hate and they got the perfect person to voice her. I hope she gets higher on the list.
Agate was quite rude, but she also seems really interesting and deep at the same time. I'd love to hear her backstory and really hope Steven is able to help her.V 3 Comments
I want to know more about Eyeball. She was a really cool villain. Shame she was thrown into space.
Umm.. I don't think Emerald was best. - LapisBob
The slinker was the creature slinking in Amethysts room. It was targeting Amethyst because she was doing everything wrong. I love the story and episode built around the slinker though. - Cooper163
The slinker has a mind of its own. It always slinks, and tries to make sure nothing gets in its way. It is misunderstood by even Steven because it just attacks in self defense. - Cooper163
I love how the slinker just slinks. It has a cool life, making holes and slinking. - Cooper163
I want my own army I want my own planet so adorable
We don't know her yet.
No one remembers Pink Diamond?
Well she is still a character.
