  • Gems from Steven Universe are Created!

    Gems from Steven Universe are totally Prometheans on their Pilgrimage to become humans! Just see this clip ( better whole episode! ):


    Pearl's 'My appearance is conscious manifestation of light' clearly indicate that Gems are made from Divine Fire!

    Also, Crystals are very close to Metals in alchemy...

    I dunno. I mean, they don't really inspire much fear or disgust or really much emotion at all in humans for the most part. They don't really create any kind of wasteland, and while the Crystal Gems' struggle was certainly for self-determination and reinvention, they don't really seem to want to be human (Rose Quartz being the exception), nor do they really lament their state, and certainly isn't the default ideal for Gemkind. The Gems act more like Angels and Demons, really.

      Your link is broken. That said, I do recall a recent episode reminding me very much of Promethean. Can't remember which one, might have been Earthlings? I'm pretty sure it involved Steven telling Amethyst that she didn't have to be what she was made to be, she could become who she wanted to be.

        "Steven Vs. Amethyst", I think. There were a lot of episodes with that, but it was the most prominent to me in that one.

          The corrupted Gem monsters make me think of Pandorans, especially the fusion mutants.

            Fixed clip, it starts properly at 0:45 time.

            Scenes like those precisely remind me about Promethean. They powers also works a bit more like Transmutations.

              But they show 'huh, she IS weird one' to humans - just see latest episodes. It maybe interpreted as start of Disquiet, only very low.

                Eh, not really. They kinda sorta have one theme mildly in common. If anything they would be Angels/Demons.

                  I primarily see Steven Universe as Demon-like, but there are certainly some Promethean parallels.

                    It occurs to me that Gems have pre-assigned roles in their society...like Castes. Maybe they're more like Exalts?

                      Angels/Demons have Incarnations which are the things they were made for, just like the Gems.
