This article contains information on a subject that is not considered canon in Steven Universe.
The Electric Skulls are minor antagonists, and made their debut in the Pilot.
The Electric Skulls are bright cool green skulls with jewels eyes with many patterns on them. They also have three long tufts of burgundy hair coming from the tops of their heads.
- Green crystals in place of their eyes, and on the center of their forehead.
- Pink/red hair.
- Turquoise head.
- Markings around the eyes.
- Maniacal Laughs.
- Spiked collars on their hair.
- Senses holes in the fabric of time.
- Charging itself, and can discharge enemies.
- Can move its hair freely.
- The Electric Skulls seem to be at least partially inspired by Mexican sugar skulls used during the "Día de los Muertos", or Day of the Dead, which in turn appear to be in some parts based on Aztec sacrificial skulls.
- They are also likely a reference to the Lich from Adventure Time, a series upon which Rebecca Sugar and others involved with the show previously worked. In classic fantasy lore, the advanced form of Lich is the Demi-Lich, which consists only of a skull with soul-trapping precious gems in its eyesockets.
- Their weakness in combat appears to be the removal of their hair pieces.
- The Electric Skulls are the first antagonists in the entire series, albeit non-canon.
- The Electric Skulls seem to have been referred to as Geraldine in Steven Universe: Art & Origins
- A dummy Electric Skull can be seen in the corn maze in Issue 8. One is also a boss in Steven Universe: Tap Together.
