Revision as of 20:19, August 18, 2015

Template:Jasper "Jasper" is a Homeworld Gem. She is the main antagonist of "The Return" and "Jail Break". She is currently kept prisoner at the bottom of Earth's ocean by Lapis Lazuli within the fusion, Malachite.


Jasper has light-tangerine skin with darker orange markings on her face and arms. Her gem is where her nose should be. She has tinted orange, thick, white flowing hair. She also has a muscular body and stands taller than Garnet, an indication of her immense strength and durability. She wears a pale-red tank-top with a mahogany V-neck collar that connects to form a yellow diamond emblem, mahogany leggings, and dark-red boots with brown tips. This is similar to Peridot's clothing, suggesting that this is the uniform for anyone under the command of Yellow Diamond.


Jasper is very ruthless and headstrong, as well as an aggressive combatant. Assumed to be a high-ranking Gem warrior and veteran of The Rebellion, Jasper is very authoritative and militaristic; something that directly affects her subordinates, Peridot and Lapis Lazuli. She doesn't care about them, doesn't bother to heed their warnings or concerns, and will not hesitate to browbeat them into submission if they complain or disagree with her. The importance she puts on one's own battle prowess also leads her to look down upon any of whom she considers to be a weakling. She despises the act of fusion specifically, as seen when she announced, "Fusion is just a cheap tactic to make weak Gems stronger!".

Her attitude towards those whom she considers to have proven themselves in battle, however, is a much more positive and respectful one. When she first arrived on Earth, she quickly dismissed Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl as weaklings not worth her time. She did, however, express disappointment when she found out that Rose Quartz wasn't present because she wanted to face her in battle, as she respected her as the military commander of the war. Likewise, this caused her to be confused and frustrated as to why Rose had apparently shape-shifted into a "weak human boy" to fight her.

As strong as her personal convictions are, they are not unbreakable; the prospect of a humiliating defeat at the hands of the Crystal Gems proved to be too much for her. In a last desperate attempt to seize victory, she coerced Lapis Lazuli to fuse with her to form Malachite, apparently disregarding her previous opinion on fusion.

In "Chille Tid", Jasper was shown to be more angry and hateful than before, revealing she is persistent in being freed from Malachite, while becoming more unstable.

Jasper's Spin Dash

Jasper possesses standard Gem abilities, including weapon-summoning, shape-shifting, bubbling, regeneration, fusion, agelessness, and superhuman strength/durability.

She has incredible amounts of physical strength and stamina, making her the most physically imposing Gem seen thus far. She is mentally powerful, as it is taking all of Lapis's concentration to subdue Jasper.


  • Crash Helmet Proficiency: By gathering her resolve and thirst for battle, Jasper is able to summon her weapon; a tangerine, crystalline helmet. The helmet acts both as a weapon and armor; a hammer-like protrusion in the front of the helmet allows her to use it to charge, slam, and head-butt her opponent, while a clear orange tinted visor extends down, covering the upper part of her face. The strength of the helmet rivals that of Garnet's gauntlets, as Jasper was shown continuously countering her attacks.
  • Martial Arts: Further reflecting the similarities between herself and Amethyst, Jasper is likewise prone to mixing up her weapon-based attacks with martial arts moves, such as grappling, throwing, or simply punching her opponent. Due to the nature of her weapon, the two styles mix seamlessly and combines into a powerful, but ultimately reckless fighting style with immense collateral damage.
    • Head-butts: Jasper is shown to be able to head-butt without her weapon. This version, although weaker without her crash-helmet, still has the potential to knock out a human being.

Unique Abilities

  • Comet Charge: Jasper can lunge at her foes with alarming speed and power, as evidenced by the attack breaking through layers of hard gemstone. While she performs this attack, a fiery aura is formed around her.
  • Spin Dash: Jasper can rapidly roll in a ball-like shape to attack enemies. While Amethyst was shown to have this ability as well, it seems that Jasper's version is more powerful, as shown in "Jailbreak", Jasper can use it in the air with her spin dash but Amethyst can't.


  • Gem Destabilizer: Homeworld Gems, in addition to their summon-able weapon, seem to carry a personal defense weapon known as Gem Destabilizers — extremely potent, "non-lethal" tools used to subdue enemy Gems. Jasper is seen using this weapon on Garnet in "The Return".


Rose Quartz/Steven

File:The Return 1.png

Jasper holds some animosity towards Rose, as Jasper was present and fought for the loyalist Gem forces during The Rebellion on Earth. She was looking forward to "beating her into the ground" upon arriving on Earth, as she had never encountered her in the war. Despite this, Jasper expresses a great deal of respect towards Rose for her role as the military commander of the war. Jasper believes that Steven is Rose, and treats him as such. In "Chille Tid", Jasper is shown to harbor a vendetta against Steven, and tries to attack him upon seeing him. However, she is restrained and eventually suppressed by Lapis.

Crystal Gems

Due to the Crystal Gems being traitors who staged a rebellion against their Homeworld, and the fact that Jasper fought on the side of the loyalist Gems in the conflict, her views on the Crystal Gems is naturally a negative one. She is eager to settle the score with them; so much so that she expresses disappointment in the fact that the three are all that is left of Rose's army. She initially considers them unworthy for her to fight personally and simply orders Peridot to blast them with the Gem ship.

Jasper and Peridot seem to hold some type of tension between each other. Most of this seems to stem from the fact that Jasper was put in charge of escorting Peridot as the Crystal Gems repeatedly hindered Peridot's efforts, forcing Peridot to report to her superior(s) and ask for additional help in the matter. Jasper pays little attention to Peridot's grievances and complaints, possibly as a result of Jasper looking down on Peridot who is more of an intellectual/technician than a warrior. Peridot states, in a message supposed to be sent to Yellow Diamond, that Jasper is her escort.

Lapis Lazuli

Jail break.jpg

Jasper persuading Lapis

Jasper was put in-charge of overseeing Lapis following her return to Homeworld. She forced Lapis to help them find and capture the Crystal Gems. Jasper treats Lapis very roughly and imprisons her after finding out she withheld information from her. Their 'toxic' relationship is supposed contrast with Sapphire and Ruby's healthy relationship. When Jasper attempts to coerce Lapis into fusing with her in order to defeat the Crystal Gems, Lapis eventually consents. The two fuse together to form Malachite, with Jasper initially appearing to be the dominant personality. Before Jasper could make use of her new form, Lapis regained control of her hydrokinetic ability to bind and imprison their fusion beneath the ocean. While trapped beneath the ocean, Jasper is tenacious in her efforts to either regain control of Malachite or escape the fusion.


File:Jail Break (35).PNG

Jasper and Garnet's relationship is very antagonistic, as Jasper's self-reliant outlook on life means that she looks down on Garnet for being a fusion. When she first met Garnet, she referred to her as a "shameless display", implying she knew that Garnet was a fusion. Her defeat, at the hands of Garnet, pushes her to make the hypocritical decision to fuse with Lapis in order to get stronger. This rash decision led to her imprisonment at the bottom of the ocean.

Main article: Jasper/Quotes


  • Like the other Homeworld Gems, she has a diamond on her outfit.
    • Jasper has a yellow diamond on her uniform, just like Peridot.
  • Jasper can be considered an opposing counterpart to Rose Quartz.
    • Rose and Jasper both have the same hair-length, but while Rose's hair is soft and curly, Jasper's hair is wild and unkempt.
    • They both are of similar height and stature, with Jasper being more muscular than Rose, indicative of both of their respective natures.
    • Rose's combat style apparently focuses on defense, while Jasper's focuses on offense.
    • Rose is kind and serene, Jasper is savage and ill-tempered.
    • Rose fought against the Gem Homeworld, while Jasper fought on its behalf.
    • This could be a hint to actual mineralogy, as jasper and quartz have the same chemical composition (silicon dioxide, colored by iron), but different internal structure.
  • Not counting Pearl's closeup in "Lars and the Cool Kids", Jasper is the first non-fusion Gem to be drawn with both pupils and irises, the second being Sapphire.
  • Both Jasper's and Amethyst's Spin Dash are possibly inspired by the attack of the same name performed by the popular fictional character, Sonic the Hedgehog from the game of the same name.
  • Jasper is consistently shown to be left-handed.
  • Jasper is the only Gem whose outfit changed without her regenerating, as seen with the difference between "The Return" and "Jail Break".
  • She appears to not know that Rose had given up her physical form. This is most likely because she's had no contact with Earth for several millennia.
  • Raven Molisee has stated that the reason for Jasper wearing a cape in "The Return" was to look "intimidatingly fabulous".[1]
  • The bands or stripes on Jasper's body are an aesthetic meant to represent the appearance of her gem in real life and to give her a comouflage or army commando look that fits her character.[2]
  • Jasper's Spin Dash could possibly be a reference to both Sonic's Spin Dash and Mega Man X's Nova Strike combined.
  • Jasper was the first non-Crystal Gem to have their weapon confirmed.
  • Jasper was the third Homeworld Gem to appear on the show, the first being Lapis Lazuli and the second being Peridot.
  • Jasper is one of two Homeworld Gems to have a known fusion (Malachite). The other Homeworld Gem is Lapis Lazuli.


Gemstone Information

  • Jasper is the zodiacal stone for Leo, Virgo, and Scorpio. It is a planetary stone for Mars, and is associated with the element of fire. It is also an alternative birthstone of March.
  • Jasper gemstones often represent protection, nurturing, relaxation, and so on.
    • This is ironic, due to Jasper's cruel and aggressive nature.
  • Jasper is a variety of quartz with a chemical composition composed primarily of silicon dioxide.
  • Jasper comes in all colors, mostly striped, spotted or flamed.
  • Jasper's chemical formula is SiO2::Fe2O3, where the iron oxide (Fe2O3) make jaspers take a red-orange coloration.
  • The name 'Jasper' is directed from the Greek word for 'spotted stone', referring to its natural multicolored, flame, spotted, striped-like structure.
  • Jasper can be found in different colors such as red, brown, pink or green.


Image Description
Jasper's gemstone is located where her nose otherwise would be. It is triangular, and faceted onto a low point. It also resembles a tetrahedron, which is commonly associated with fire.


    Q: "What was the whole point of Jasper wearing a cape in "The Return?""
    A: "To look intimidatingly fabulous. Need there be another reason?"
    Q: "Hi, first off I want to thank you and your fellow team members for creating one of, if not, the greatest cartoon(s) ever made. I recently came up with a theory about Jasper's bands/stripes. I know real life Jasper can be banded, but so can some other real life counter parts of the other in show Gems. So my question is: Are her bands or stripes (whatever they're technically called), more than they appear to be? Basically do they represent something... more or are they just for aesthetics."
    A: "They're just for aesthetics. They match what jasper actually looks like, and they kinda give her a camouflage/comando kinda vibe which fits her character"
