You know, you really have been quite the unruly house guests. Oh Prism! I think it's time we see our guests out.

Unleash the Light

Pyrope is one of the main antagonists and a boss in Unleash the Light. She is an Era 1 Garnet and a former holder of one of the remaining Light Prisms. She is also the former owner of the Palace of Light and former ruler of Blue Colony 4.


Pyrope's build is similar to that of Hessonite and Demantoid, with pink skin and a crimson hairstyle resembling an afro. She also has thin, pastel pink eyebrows. She wears a crimson dress with pastel pink shoulder pads and poofy sleeves. Her dress opens in the lower half showing pastel pink boots with rose accents and dark fuchsia pantaloons. Her rectangular-faceted gem is located in her midsection.


Pyrope acts in a cheerful yet snobbish manner and had a very high opinion of herself, which made sense considering her former status in Homeworld's Empire. According to Hessonite she could be easily distracted to the point of immediately abandoning a task when something else got her attention and could also be oblivious to information that was clear to others. She firmly believed all Gems needed a ruler and were lost without one. However, despite her cheery disposition, she can still lose her temper, which was put on full display when the Crystal Gems directly confronted and defeated her and Demantoid before they were poofed by each other.


Over 6,000 years before the present day, Pyrope ruled a colony from the Palace of Light, but took it offworld when lesser Gems began encroaching on the Palace's outer reaches and cut off all communications and contact with Homeworld. She was also closely acquainted with Hessonite and later Demantoid.

Unleash the Light

At the start of Era 3 under the peaceful ruler of Steven Universe, son of Pink Diamond, Pyrope and Demantoid put into action a plan of seizing rulership after being liberated from the Great Diamond Authority. They ignored Steven's orders to liberate colonies and relinquish weapons, instead establishing a base at Pyrope's old Palace while simultaneously cutting off all other colonies from Homeworld, banning their Gems from speaking of Era 3 and replacing them with constructs from their Prisms. When Steven and the Crystal Gems came to request an audience she immediately panicked and sent them away without warning. Despite this she appeared on a monitor to interrupt a disguised Hessonite's meeting with the Crystal Gems to her dismay; Hessonite allowed her to drone on before she was sidetracked by messages on another Homeworld channel. She appeared on another monitor to taunt the Crystal Gems and interrupt Hessonite again; when Demantoid came into the conversation she cut her off just before she could be informed of Hessonite's identity.

She was surprised at seeing the Gems in her room proudly boasting about her status to the annoyance of everyone else and expressing irritation at their persistence before engaging them. When Demantoid arrived she was scolded for her pride before Hessonite entered and was shocked after unmasking her. She expressed her outrage at Hessonite's actions and looked on eagerly as Hessonite's Prism, George, was forced by Demantoid to combine with the other Prisms. After being defeated, Pyrope ordered Demantoid to get the Prisms to attack again but was pushed off by her fellow Garnet. When Bismuth took away their Prisms and Demantoid's Limb Enhancers the two argued about how their failure was each other's fault ending with them attacking and poofing each other.


Pyrope possesses standard Gem abilities, bubbling, shapeshifting, fusion, regeneration, agelessness, and superhuman strength/durability.


  • Light Prism: Pyrope owned a Prism of Light which she used to fight the Crystal Gems.  However, it was eventually taken away from her.
    • Holographic Projection: Pyrope can project holographic images from the help of her Prism, although she mainly uses this to throw off her enemies in a fight.
  • Handheld Fan Proficiency: Pyrope is able to summon a fan as her weapon. She could use her fan to attack by throwing it like a boomerang and easily poofing other Gems if they were hit with it enough times.

    Pyrope's fan.

    • Wind Boost: She could also boost wind waves against opponents and this energy could be concentrated into a larger red whirlwind that crossed all opponents at the same time.

Unique Abilities

  • Levitation: Pyrope can briefly float in the air with her dress.


  • Her design and fan could be inspired by or may reference the feminine style from the French Baroque era prior to the French Revolution. These features also highlighted Pyrope's position in the hierarchy. Her choice of the baroque-designed Blue Colony 4 also supported this.
  • She is the only known non-fusion Garnet to not have a unibrow.
  • Pyrope having a fan as her weapon was Rebecca's idea.
  • Originally her “duplicate/illusions” battle ability was going to initiate from her taking out and admiring herself in a mirror , but Grumpyface Studios had to simplify the animation for time.
