This article is about the Ancient Sky Arena. You may be looking for Pearl's Arena or Cloud Arena.

The "Ancient Sky Arena" is a location that is first seen in "Sworn to the Sword". It is said to be where ancient Gem battles used to take place. Pearl uses the area to train Steven and Connie.


The arena is set floating around clouds in the sky, with a Warp Pad in the front of the structure, a four colored lozenge symbol of The Great Diamond Authority behind it along with small circles (resembling the Galaxy Warp). There are stairs to the left and right of the entrance. Most of the arena is in ruin, by only a few columns are gone, as one-half of the structure is destroyed near the center. Above the entrance to the arena are four large lozenges of the same pattern, with the pink portion somewhat destroyed. As the stairs lead down to the middle arena, three statues of Gems holding weapons are seen below. The first one on the left wields a sword and appears very similar to Yellow Diamond. Her gemstone is placed on her chest. The second Gem on the right wields a spear and has her gemstone placed where her nose would be, similar to Jasper's. The third and last Gem on the far right has her gemstone placed on her forehead and wields a mace. The fourth statue of a Gem is on the far left, but cannot be made out due to being destroyed save for the legs. Below at the ruined end shows hexagon holes that look like windows. Gem writing is seen on the columns next to the statues.


Pearl mentions that some of the earliest battles for Earth took place in this arena during the Crystal Gems' rebellion against the Gem Homeworld. This was where Pearl first understood the concept of chivalry and what it means to be a knight; to be completely dedicated to a person and cause.

In "It Could've Been Great", schematics for the Ancient Sky Arena are seen on the Moon Base's computer display.

During "Steven vs. Amethyst", Steven and Amethyst hold a fight here to determine who is worse than the other. The battle leaves a fair deal of collateral damage on the arena, much to Pearl's dismay.

During "Mindful Education", Steven and Connie learn how to keep their fusion Stevonnie balanced by working over with each other's problems with Garnet's help. It's also revealed that the arena floats over a mountainous area with grassy fields.


  • The four lozenges that appear on the back wall of the arena represent the Great Diamond Authority.
    • It appears to have been made before Pink Diamond was shattered.
    • The larger floating diamonds forming the same symbol at the peak of the arena show severe damage to the pink diamond, possibly indicating that she was shattered.
      • This also serves as foreshadowing to Pink Diamond's fate, as the arena is shown well before that information is revealed in "Back to the Moon".
  • The four statues near the pillars in the four corners of the arena appear to depict the Diamond Authority, with the statue in the east corner depicting Yellow Diamond (easily identifiable by her distinctive hairstyle) standing with a greatsword, and the statue at the south corner, likely that of Pink Diamond, destroyed.
    • The gems in the north corner (depicted with a longspear) and the west corner (depicted with a mace) can be assumed to be Blue Diamond and the as-yet-unnamed, fourth "White" Diamond, though which is which is unclear.
