Garnet is a Fighter from the Steven Universe (Universe) in MultiVersus. She was revealed alongside the game itself on November 18th, 2021, and is part of the game's initial release roster, having been playable since the first Tech Test.


Garnet is one of the main characters from the 2013 Cartoon Network animated series Steven Universe. She's the current de-facto leader of the Crystal Gems, as well as the fusion between the Homeworld Gem soldier Ruby and the Blue Diamond's court member Sapphire. Garnet's Gem Weapons consist of her Gauntlets, and her skillset notably includes an enhanced form of Sapphire's Future Visions.

Official Biography

Protector of Earth and possessor of unshakeable rhythm.


Garnet is the leader of the Crystal Gems - A group of extraterrestrial rebels hiding out on Earth. Along with the other Gems (and Steven), Garnet has sworn to protect the Earth from any invaders. She is actually the fusion of two Gems - Ruby & Sapphire - and might just be the most stable Fusion in existence. She may seem cold and stoic, but Garnet has a huge heart and will do anything to protect those in her care.[1]


Garnet hits (and dances) harder than just about anyone else. And those fists aren't just for show - She can even launch them like missiles across the battlefield.

Default Variant

Garnet's default look is based on her design from the second season of Steven Universe.

Interestingly enough, Garnet's design from her concept art seems to have been based on her Season 1 design.

Garnet can CHARGE and aim an electric bolt PROJECTILE upward. The bolt will leave an electrical power zone where it lands, applying ELECTRIFIED to overlapping allies and SHOCKED to enemies. When the zone expires, it will KNOCKBACK overlapping enemies and give overlapping allies an even stronger version of ELECTRIFIED that increases MELEE DAMAGE as well. On COOLDOWN, Garnet will do a strong overhead clap.
Garnet shoots upward and hits enemies, then extends her fists outward, knocking enemies at an upward angle.
🡇 + K
Garnet places a marker. Press input again to dash to it and grab an enemy along the way, throwing them back upon arriving. The marker will attach to allies who touch it. If Garnet dashes to her ally, she will cancel their HITSTUN and KNOCKBACK and REFRESH their air options. COOLDOWN applies.
Same as ground.

A comparison between Garnet's normal model and lobby model.
  • Garnet's lobby model is different from the model she normally uses in the game.
  • Garnet, Bugs Bunny (in his Hollywood Bugs Variant), and Reindog are currently the only Fighters in the game to have had their defeat animations changed from the Closed Alpha. Before the change, Garnet's defeat animation showed her poofing as a reference to the Steven Universe episode “The Return”. However, in the Open Beta, it was changed to her getting angry before sitting down and butterflies fly to her hand referencing the song “Here comes a thought” from the episode “Mindful Education”.
  • Garnet's Neutral Specials are named after the song of the same name she sung in the Steven Universe Season 1 Finale, "Jail Break".
  • A large amount of Garnet's interaction lines with Finn reference a supposed crossover. What this is referring to is unclear, as Adventure Time and Steven Universe have never formally crossed over.
