The Earth Beetle is a former Corrupted Gem that makes her first appearance in "Giant Woman". Garnet had found her while Steven, Pearl and Amethyst searched for the Heaven Beetle at the Sky Spire.

Appearance

Corrupted

The Earth Beetle's figure somewhat looks like that of a Japanese Rhinoceros Beetle. The Earth Beetle's femurs are black, and the lower half of her legs are black. Her body is mostly a lightish-gray, but has a pale green gemstone on the top center of her body which is surrounded by a clover shape that is dark gray. She also has a black horn, black eyes, and black antlers.

Uncorrupted

Her uncorrupted appearance is the same as the Heaven Beetle, except with a different color scheme.

History

Thousands of Years Ago

The Earth Beetle was on Earth during the Rebellion, and became corrupted when being exposed to the Diamonds' Corrupting Light at the war's end.

"Giant Woman"

Due to Ruby's ability to resist extremely hot temperatures, Garnet explored the lava lake to find the Earth Beetle while the other Crystal Gems searched for the Heaven Beetle. She, along the Heaven Beetle, is placed in a bubbled terrarium.

"Change Your Mind"

The Heaven and Earth Beetle are released from the terrarium to soak in the healing waters of Rose's Fountain, powered by Steven and the Diamonds. The two are uncorrupted, and the Earth Beetle kisses the Heaven Beetle on the cheek before the two are raised in the air by the emerging Snow Monster.

"Steven Universe: The Movie"

She, along with the Heaven Beetle was first seen listening to Steven's speech.
Later on, when Spinel accidentally caused the giant pizza cutter to go out of control, one of the barrels on the scaffolding fell towards the two who were on their daily constitution. They were saved by Lapis who flew in to take them out of harm's way. They were then seen at the end of the movie after Spinel left with the diamonds

Relationships

Heaven Beetle

Change Your Mind 979

As shown in "Change Your Mind", the Heaven and Earth Beetle appeared to have a very close, presumably romantic relationship before being corrupted. 

"Steven Universe: The Movie" also showed them going on a daily constitutional


Lapis Lazuli

Lapis saves the Heaven and Earth Beetle from the run away barrel. After being asked if they were okay, they answered yes by giving a thumbs up.

  • It was confirmed that the Earth Beetle, along with the Heaven Beetle, are corrupted Gems.[1]
  • The Heaven Beetle appears to have a gemstone identical to the Earth Beetle's. This could mean that they are the same Gem type.
