|~ Yellow Diamond to Peridot|
"Yellow Diamond" is a Homeworld Gem and a member of the Great Diamond Authority that rules over the Gem race. She was first shown in the extended theme song and made her debut appearance in "Message Received". She is said to be flawless, with no weaknesses, as well as being a Diamond, which are the strongest varieties of gems on Homeworld.
Powers and Stats
Tier: At least High 6-A, likely higher
Name: Yellow Diamond
Origin: Steven Universe
Gender: Genderless (Though appears as and commonly referred to as female)
Age: Over 8,000 years old
Classification: Homeworld Gem, Member of the Diamond Authority, Homeworld leader (alongside other diamonds)
Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Regeneration (Low-High), Immortality (Types 1 and 3), Shapeshifting, Size Manipulation, Body Control, Biological Manipulation, Can fuse with other gems to become more powerful, Can contain gems in bubbles of energy, Automatic-adjustment to different strengths of gravity, Pocket Reality Manipulation (All Gems have a pocket dimension of infinite size contained within their gemstone), Does not need oxygen to survive, Electricity Manipulation, Gem destabilization, Aura (Allows her to detect and harm entities on the astral plane), Resistance to Empathic Manipulation (Resisted Blue Diamond's emotion wave better than other gems) and Telepathy (Steven struggled to get near her in his Astral Projection form due to her aura)
Attack Potency: At least Multi-Continent level (The Diamonds are considered to be by far the most powerful Gems in existence, so greatly superior to others that even the thought of a Diamond getting "poofed" is considered laughable. Is much more powerful than characters such as Lapis Lazuli and fusions like Malachite and Alexandrite as well. Almost certainly more powerful than White Light, who was able to take multiple hits from Alexandrite and continue fighting at full efficiency. Punched through her Gem Warship, which should be much more durable than Peridot's, which could easily take the power of 4 Laser Light cannons and Opal's Arrows), likely higher (While the exact degree of the Diamonds' superiority to other Gems is unknown, the fact that any other Gem "poofing" them is seen as a joke suggests the difference could be absolutely massive)
Lifting Strength: Class Z (Should be vastly superior to the likes of Lapis Lazuli and Malachite, Lifted a part of her ship casually)
Striking Strength: At least Multi-Continent Class, likely higher
Durability: At least Multi-Continent level, likely higher (The idea of another Gem even being able to hurt a Diamond is seen as absurd)
Stamina: Limitless so long as her gem isn't damaged or destroyed
Range: Extended melee range by virtue of size, at least several dozen meters with ranged attacks
Standard Equipment: Unknown
Intelligence: High (As the commander of the Gem Homeworld military, Yellow Diamond has extensive knowledge of combat and tactical warfare)
Weaknesses: Sufficient damage to her physical form can revert her back to her vulnerable gem form which can be broken and destroyed
- Aura Projection: The Diamonds can project an aura around them that they can control, they can either radiate it from their entire bodies or emit it from specific parts of their bodies, usually their hands. Yellow's aura is represented as yellow clouds of electricity. She can use this as an offensive ability in both the physical and mental plane, as seen when she was able to focus her aura and attack Steven as he was projecting.
- Electrokinesis: Yellow Diamond can generate powerful electric currents around her entire body and then project it from her fingertips, which are powerful enough to destabilize a Gem's form. This attack functions exactly like a Gem Destabilizer. She can also focus electricity to cut through thick surfaces.
