"Shut your mouth! You have failed at every stage of this mission. Your only chance to redeem yourself is to obey this simple order. You are to leave the Cluster to grow. It will tear apart the Earth, and I will take immense satisfaction in erasing that hideous rock off of our star maps. IS THAT CLEAR?!"
– Yellow Diamond expressing her failure to Peridot and hatred towards Earth in Message Received episode
Yellow Diamond is a giant Homeworld Gem and a member of the Great Diamond Authority that rules over the Gem race. She's also one of the main "antagonists" in in Steven Universe.
Why She Rocks
- Despite being a one-dimensional character like Blue Diamond, her motivation is clear and easier to understand. For example, she wants to destroy Earth because she’s clearly has hatred towards organic life and does it for White Diamond’s sake to be more prouder.
- Decent character design as she’s meant to look more militaristic.
- Her angry face meme (which appears in Message Received episode) is hilarious, especially her long neck.
- On top of that, Rebecca Sugar even added that meme in Together Alone episode!
- Despite being ruthless, her character development started to grew slowly in Season 4 as she can be emotional and sympathetic, sometimes, towards her fellow Diamonds; especially in That Will Be All episode.
- Badass abilities as she can poof gems, even Blue Diamond, which is self-explanatory. Plus, she’s fast!
- She redeemed herself after Blue Diamond convinced Yellow to revolt against White Diamond in Change Your Mindepisode.
