Homeworld doesn't fight fair. That's why we need a different strategy.

Bismuth, "Bismuth"

The Breaking Point was a weapon created by Bismuth to give the Crystal Gems an advantage against Homeworld's Army. Steven destroys the weapon in the lava at the Forge after poofing Bismuth in her eponymous episode.


The Breaking Point is a weapon very similar to a pile bunker. It has a maroon colored base, two little black straps underneath for the arm, a silver cylinder on one end, and a large metal spike on the other. The top is adorned with a pink star with a pink line underneath, similar to the tattoo on Bismuth's shoulder.


It functions by drawing the knob on the end back; when fired, the spike on the front shoots out and destroys anything in front of it. Bismuth claimed that it can shatter any Gem, even a Diamond.



Sometime during the Rebellion, Bismuth desired to make a powerful and revolutionary weapon to combat the Crystal Gems' disadvantage against Homeworld. Upon completion, she asked Rose for her opinion on it. Rose was opposed to using the weapon, claiming that it was not right to shatter Gems. Bismuth was unable to accept her refusal, and Rose was ultimately forced to poof and bubble Bismuth away to prevent her from using the Breaking Point.

Once introduced to Steven, Bismuth presents the weapon to him as well, but he also rejects it in the same manner as his mother. This infuriates Bismuth, believing him to be his mother in disguise, attempts to shatter him with the weapon. Steven defends himself using Rose's Sword, stabbing her through the midriff and poofing her. After bubbling Bismuth once again, Steven throws the Breaking Point into the lava.

"The Trial"

After learning that his mother shattered Pink Diamond, Steven assumed she used the Breaking Point to do it. When on trial on Homeworld and pressed by Blue Diamond for explanation on how Pink Diamond was shattered, Steven gives a fictitious account of the final confrontation between Rose and Pink Diamond, ending with the assumption that the former used the Breaking Point; this causes Blue Diamond to fly into a rage, as eyewitness accounts state that Rose used her sword to shatter Pink Diamond.

"Made of Honor"

After being told the whole story regarding Rose Quartz being Pink Diamond, Bismuth finally understood why Rose didn't want her to use the Breaking Point. Bismuth first quips that she made a weapon to destroy the leader of the Crystal Gems and then sees that she inadvertently gave Rose the idea to fake her shattering.


  • The Homeworld's Shattering Robonoids are also capable of shattering Gems, though they use beams of energy while the Breaking Point uses pure physical force, an indication of the advances in technology Homeworld has made since the Rebellion.
  • The Breaking Point also shares some design elements with the alien Armodrillo from the Ben 10 franchise, specifically his arms.
